    Antonio Oliveira Marreca foi um economista português (e por um breve período também professor de economia politica) de meados do seculo XIX que, a partir de uma certa fase, se revelou desalinhado do cânone liberal dominante e se aproximou das perspectivas do 'sistema nacional de economia politica'. A sua acção enquanto economista teórico e enquanto doutrinador do nacionalismo desenvolvimentista foi em boa medida ja estudada. Mais obscura permanece a sua intervenção no campo da politica económ...

    2011-04-01

    Full Text Available Carlos de Oliveira is a Portuguese author who writes a kind of corrosive and historic defeat that he called falhanço. In his books this concept can be compared to some movies of the lato sensu neo-realistic director Luchino Visconti. In Carlos de Oliveira books, the falhanço can appear in the structural relationship between his own texts and the censorship during Portugal dictatorship, as we can see in the collapse of world showed in his two last books, Pastoral and Finisterra, published after the redemocratization in 1974. This text discusses others implications of the falhanço’s concept in his poems and fictionm as well.

    2002-11-01

    Universal gebildete und interessierte Menschen sind selten geworden in unserer Zeit. Victor F. Weisskopf war einer von ihnen. Sein geistiger Horizont umfasste nicht nur sein eigentliches Fachgebiet, die Physik, wo er sich durch fundamentale Arbeiten in den Bereichen der Quantenfeldtheorie, der Kern- und Elementarteilchenphysik hervortat. Daneben bildeten Kunst und Musik sowie ein außergewöhnliches Engagement in sozialen und politischen Angelegenheiten die Eckpunkte seines Lebens. Der Einsatz für die Verständigung zwischen den Machtblöcken während des Kalten Krieges war für ihn ebenso selbstverständlich wie das Bedürfnis, die neuen Ideen der Physik einem breiten Publikum nahe zu bringen. Die Wissenschaft erschien ihm als das geeignete Mittel, um zum Wohle der Menschheit zu wirken.

    Full Text Available The article is dedicated to the memory of Victor Nikolaevich Shitov (October 1, 1947-October 31, 2013, who had been the intellectual leader of the archaeologists of the Republic of Mordovia for many years. The basic stages of his scientific biography are elucidated. The first independent studies conducted by V.N. Shitov were associated with the Shoksha burial ground referring to the Ryazan-Oka culture. Since then, the ancient Mordovian culture of the 1st millennium AD had been playing the dominant role in his studies. In 1976, V.N. Shitov became a research fellow of the sector of Archeology and Ethnography, the Mordovian Research Institute of language, literature, history and economics. The last period of his scientific activity was connected with the preparation and organizational work on the multi-volume edition “The archaeology of the Mordovian land”.

  12. Victor's justice: atrocities in postwar Nigeria.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Omaka, Arua Oko

    2016-01-01

    The Nigerian Government's declaration of 'no victor, no vanquished' after the capitulation of Biafra on 12 January 1970, was applauded as the right step towards reconciliation and transition from war to peace. Despite this declaration and assurance of amnesty, the Nigerian Government and its soldiers still engaged in acts that amounted to retributive justice. They starved and killed innocent Biafran civilians, looted their property and raped their women. Surprisingly, these postwar atrocities committed against former Biafrans have been largely ignored in the historiography of the Nigeria-Biafra War. This paper seeks to fill the gap in the war literature by interrogating Nigerian Government's attitude towards the postwar humanitarian crisis and crimes against humanity in former Biafra. The paper argues that former Biafrans were not fully reintegrated into the Nigerian society and that the Nigerian Government deliberately neglected them to die in large numbers, thereby making it difficult for the war victims to recover from the hardships of the conflict.

  13. Liberalismo e democracia na sociologia política de Oliveira Vianna Liberalism and democracy in Oliveira Vianna's polical sociology

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ricardo Silva

    2008-12-01

    Full Text Available O artigo examina o pensamento político de Oliveira Vianna, por meio de um diálogo crítico, com modelo de interpretação que define como "autoritarismo instrumental" a singularidade de sua concepção de Estado. Em tal modelo de interpretação, as instituições do Estado autoritário idealizadas e propostas pelo sociólogo fluminense são apresentadas como instrumentos (meios adequados para a realização do liberalismo político e da democracia no Brasil. Uma vez atingidos seus verdadeiros fins liberais e democráticos, o caráter autoritário do Estado poderia ser questionado e abolido. Em nosso entender, além de não questionar o equivocado pressuposto de que é possível a realização de fins democráticos por meios autoritários, o modelo do "autoritarismo instrumental" é inapropriado para a compreensão, dimensão ideológica do pensamento político de Oliveira Vianna, orientada para a justificação de uma forma de Estado antiliberal e antidemocrática.This article examines the political thought of Oliveira Vianna by means of a critical dialogue with the model of interpretation that defines as "instrumental authoritarianism" the singularity of his conception of State. In such model of interpretation, the institutions of the authoritarian State idealized and proposed by that author are presented as instruments (means adjusted for the accomplishment of the political liberalism and the democracy in Brazil. After the liberal and democratic ends were accomplished, the authoritarian character of the State could be questioned and abolished. This article argues that, besides not questioning the equivocal assumption that it would be possible to accomplish democratic ends by means of authoritarian instruments, the "instrumental authoritarianism" model is not appropriate to understanding the ideological dimension of Oliveira Vianna's political thought, which is oriented to the justification of an antiliberal and antidemocratic State form.

  14. Enraizamento de estacas semilenhosas de cultivares de oliveira

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Luiz Fernando de Oliveira da Silva

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar o enraizamento de estacas semilenhosas provenientes de 35 cultivares de oliveira, coletadas em duas épocas do ano (abril e agosto. O delineamento experimental utilizado foi o inteiramente casualizado, em esquema fatorial 35x2, com quatro repetições e 25 estacas por parcela. As estacas foram preparadas com aproximadamente 12 cm de comprimento e 4 a 6 internódios, com quatro folhas inteiras na região apical. O tratamento com solução hidroalcoólica de ácido indolbutírico (AIB, na concentração de 3 g L-1, foi realizado por imersão de 3 cm da base das estacas na solução, por cinco segundos. As estacas foram acondicionadas em bancadas preenchidas com areia e colocadas em casa de vegetação com nebulização intermitente. Decorridos 70 dias, verificou-se que o potencial de enraizamento das estacas é de grande variação entre as cultivares de oliveira. As cultivares MGS MANZ215 e MGS TAF390 se destacaram pela maior capacidade de enraizamento. A estaquia em abril favorece o enraizamento, em relação à estaquia realizada em agosto, para algumas das cultivares avaliadas.

  16. Roberts Victor eclogites: ancient oceanic crust

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    MacGregor, I.D.

    1985-01-01

    New data on the oxygen isotopic chemistry of the oceanic crust and ophiolites illustrate the role of circulating seawater in changing the chemistry of aging oceanic crust. A similar range of oxygen isotope ratios in the eclogites suggests a comparable origin. The interpretation is consistent with the following observations: Whole rocks values of S /sup 18/O are negatively correlated with both the /sup 87///sup 86/Sr and K content. The internal whole rock correlations may be explained as a series of rocks that have undergone varying degrees of alteration on an ancient sea floor. Whole rock chemistry when recalculated to 1 atm. norms and compared with 1 atm. liquidus diagrams indicate two different groups of eclogites. One group has trends that are comparable to a series of liquids formed by the fractional crystallization of olivine followed by plagioclase and clinopyroxene while the other group correlate with cumulate assemblages of gabbroic composition. The REE chemistry of separated garnets and clinopyroxenes and whole rocks allow recalculation of the chemistry of the intergranular material which is significantly LREE enriched. K, Rb, Li and Ti are similarly enriched. The intergranular chemistry compares favorably with that of hypothesized mantle metasomatising fluids and is interpreted to evolve during the metamorphic transition to eclogite assemblages during subduction. The data allow for the interpretation that the Roberts Victor eclogite are relicts of at least 3.2 b.y. old oceanic crust and that the two different groups separately represent the volcanic and gabbroic rocks of the upper part of the ancient oceanic lithosphere.

    Full Text Available DJ Oliveira faleceu em 23 de setembro de 2006, aos 72 anos de idade, quando completou 50 anos de atividade como artista plástico. Oriundo do grupo Santa Helena, de São Paulo, ajudou a fundar a escola de pintura de Goiânia, mas acabou vivendo no exílio, no interior de Luziânia. Ele ainda não foi reconhecido na dimensão dos seus méritos. Tendo os fundadores de Brasília optado pelo modernismo abstrato e tendo ele se afastado da geometria simples de seu companheiro Volpi, DJ viu-se posto de lado como se fosse um artista inferior àqueles que ficaram consagrados porque foram promovidos pelo poder. Vai chegar a hora de rever o esquema dominante, em que aparece como grande artista aquele que estava nas preferências do dono do poder, como se este fosse o dono do saber ou a corporificação do sujeito transcendental estético.

    Abstract The little that remains of Motschoulsky’s myriapodological legacy in the collection of Moscow’s Zoological Museum proves to be of very limited value. Only one species of Diplopoda described by Motschoulsky, the Caucasian Hirudisoma roseum (Victor, 1839), is still in use, yet requiring a neotype designation, whereas the remaining few myriapod names he proposed are either nomina dubia or nomina nuda. The former include Scolopendra pentagramma Motschoulsky, 1866 (Chilopoda, Scolopendromorpha, Scolopendridae) and Strongylosoma carinulatum Motschoulsky, 1866 (Diplopoda, Polydesmida, Paradoxosomatidae), both from Japan, as well as Julus costulatus Motschoulsky, 1851 (Diplopoda, Callipodida, Schizopetalidae?), from Montenegro, because their type material is either inadequate or missing.

  9. Survey of industrial noise in Port Elizabeth.

    Lane, J L

    1976-02-07

    The amendment to the Factories, Machinery and Building Work Act of 1941 in regard to hearing conservation is outlined. A survey by the Port Elizabeth Deaf Association on workmen from Cadbury (Pty) Ltd was undertaken in 1973 and on a second group in 1974 and the results are published and discussed. Although the numbers of workmen were small, the results suggest that widespread testing will unearth many cases of unsuspected hearing loss. The implications as applied to industry at large are discussed and the difficulties in adequately assessing large numbers of workmen with adequately trained audiometric testers are stressed. A suggestion is made that mobile clinics under the control of Chambers of Industries would be the most efficient way of approaching the screening problem, and an estimated cost structure in the setting up of such a clinic is introduced.

  10. Representing Bodies. Victor Brauner’s Hybrids, Fragments and Mechanisms

    2007-05-01

    emotional attachment. The French culture had been set long ago as a model for the entire Romanian modern culture and institutions. Consequently it is not surprising that poets and artists, including Victor Brauner, chosed to live and work in Paris in order to feel closer to what was considered to be the origin. Victor Brauner is discussed both in the context of the Romanian avant-garde and in the history of the French surrealism, but one cannot detect any tension between center and periphery. One motivation can be found in the myth he creates for himself. Meanwhile it is obvious that he wanted to identify himself with the French surrealism. Once settled in France he paid great attention to the theories and to the artists André Breton promoted. I will discuss the myth of the artist as well as the threads which connect Brauner to other artistic strategies bringing forth the body problem. Almost always his paintings and drawings display the ineluctable presence of a metamorphic body within no narrative construction. This preoccupation informed every stage of his career as he dedicated it the greatest energies of his artistic inventiveness. Before going into the subject, one needs to frame Brauner in a larger picture.

Neste artigo, procuramos demonstrar que Mãe Pobre de Carlos de Oliveira constitui uma importante revolução estética ao nível das relações entre o culto e o popular: entre a poesia de autor, inserida no quadro teórico, ideológico e estético supra-individual do Neo-Realismo, e a poesia popular e tradicional, expressão do activo de pensamentos, sensibilidades, emoções, símbolos e procedimentos literários da comunidade. ABSTRACT. In this article, we attempt to show that Mãe Pobre by Carlos de Oliveira constitutes an important aesthetic revolution as regards the relationship between the high-brow and the popular culture: between the authorial poetry, which is inserted in the theoretical, ideological and supraindividual aesthetic framework of the Neo-realism, and the traditional poetry, which is an expression of the heritage, sensitivity, emotions, symbols and literary procedures of the community.

    Full Text Available José Oliveira is a book artist who takes inspiration from the history and evolution of the Western book and of Western writing. His artist’s books take the form of codices, scrolls and leporellos and embody the beliefs, grief and hopes of their author. They ask us about our conceptions of the book and the nature of reading. They are evidences of their author’s resolute rejection of contemporary techniques applied to books.

In the same text, an equation indicates that this “desert” is readable even when this word is not printed on paper. It is proposed, therefore, the concept of desert function, and it is observed, in this article, one of the best images that condense this function: the end of a stalactite.

    Full Text Available O cultivo de oliveira (Olea europaea L. no sul de Minas Gerais tem apresentado resultados promissores quanto à produção de frutos. No entanto, há necessidade de verificar seu valor nutritivo e a qualidade do azeite oriundo dos frutos das cultivares potencialmente produtivas. Objetivou-se com este trabalho determinar a composição centesimal dos frutos, as características químicas e o perfil de ácidos graxos dos azeites extraídos de diferentes cultivares de oliveira, com a finalidade de selecionar os materiais com potencial agroindustrial. Foram avaliadas 32 cultivares de oliveira com seis anos de idades quanto à composição centesimal (teores de umidade, lipídeos, proteínas e cinzas, tanto na polpa quanto no caroço dos frutos; composição química e perfil de ácidos graxos dos azeites. Observaram-se nas cultivares MGS ASC315, Cerignola, MGS GRAP561 e MGS GRAP575 maiores valores de lipídeos. Além disso, as análises indicaram que o caroço possui quantidades significativas de lipídeos, embora sempre inferiores às quantidades presentes na polpa. Os índices de acidez em ácido oleico, peróxidos e refração absoluta estão de acordo com a resolução da ANVISA, podendo ser inicialmente classificados como azeite de oliva extravirgem ou virgem. De modo geral, todos os ácidos graxos presentes nos azeites possuem valores satisfatórios, destacando a cultivar MGS GRAP084, com maior concentração de ácido oleico, principal ácido responsável pelos benefícios à saúde.

By stressing some elements linked to paganism, Aurelius Victor asserted the relevance of a “pagan” social memory that would distinguish his narrative, therefore revealing an identitary dimension.

    The French surgeon Rene Jacques Croissant de Garengeot first described the finding of the Appendix inside a femoral hernia sac in 1731. The De Garengeot's hernia is a rare entity, comprehending only 0.5-5% of the femoral hernias. The pathogenesis of this entity is still controversial, and in the same way, there are different theories to explain the occurrence of appendicitis inside the De Garengeot's hernia. There is no standard technique in the treatment of this entity. W.P.S., 84, female, admited for medical assistance due to claims of edema and flogistic signs in the right inguinal region, noted four days prior. There was no abdominal pain, discomfort, or other symptoms. The physical examination showed hard edema and bulging on the right inguinal region, colaborating for the hipotesis of incarcerated hernia. Patient was then submitted to inguinotomy and the vermiform Appendix was discovered inside the femoral hernia without signs of appendicitis. The case was conducted using the De Oliveira's technique to femoral hernia repair and Liechenstein for the inguinal hernia repair. The De Garengeot's hernia is a rare entity, comprehending only 0.5-5% of the femoral hernias(2), it represents an unusual finding and is, in the majority of cases, diagnosed intraoperatively. It's pathogenesis is yet matter of discution. There is no standard approach for this hernia, possibly by the few numbers and variability of presentation of cases described. This paper presents a case of a 84yo female with De Garengeot's hernia that was submitted to a correction using the De Oliveira's technic.

Esta pesquisa foi realizada com o objetivo de avaliar os teores de nutrientes em dois cultivares de oliveira, nas fases de crescimento vegetativo e na floração. Foram avaliados espécimes dos cultivares 'Grappolo' e 'Barnea', com dois anos de idade, obtidos a partir do enraizamento de estacas, plantadas no espaçamento de 5 m entre linhas e 3 m entre plantas. Utilizou-se o esquema de parcela sub-dividida, tendo na parcela o fatorial 2 x 2, sendo duas cultivares e duas fases de emissão fenológicas: plantas com brotações vegetativa e reprodutivas, no delineamento de blocos casualizados, com cinco repetições e sete plantas por parcela. As amostras de folhas foram retiradas em quatro épocas: junho (na ocasião do plantio e repetidas em agosto, setembro e outubro, quando as plantas iniciaram a emissão de brotações vegetativas e de flores. Na fase de florescimento, a oliveira apresentou menores teores de nutrientes que as plantas em fase vegetativa. O cultivar 'Barnea', por seu hábito de crescimento rápido, apresentou menores teores de nutrientes, durante as fases vegetativa e reprodutiva.

    2004-12-01

    Elizabeth (Beth) K. Holmes died suddenly in Pasadena on March 23, 2004, from the unexpected effects of a long-standing heart condition. She was 30 years old. At the moment of her passing, she was at her computer comparing her theoretical models on the effects of planets on the distribution of zodiacal dust with some of the first observations from the Spitzer Space Telescope. Born on June 24, 1973, in New York City, Beth was the only child of James and Barbara Holmes, who were respectively, a financial manager and a nurse and social worker. Undeterred by numerous treatments and operations to correct a congenital heart condition, Beth developed an interest in math and physics leading to her graduation from MIT in 1995 with a bachelor's degree in Physics. She entered the University of Florida shortly afterwards to begin her PhD studies under the direction of Stanley Dermott. Beth was particularly interested in the dynamics of interplanetary dust, and initially worked on secular perturbations of the zodiacal cloud: how the planets impose warping of the cloud, and how they can force the center of the cloud to be offset from the Sun. Despite the fact that Beth was primarily a theorist, she was keen to include some observing experience in her PhD education. She recently completed an observing program with Harold Butner at the Steward and Palomar Observatories looking for submillimeter and mid-infrared emission around nearby main-sequence stars - a signpost of planetary formation. The results were published last year in the Astronomical Journal. Beth's PhD thesis work, some results of which were recently published in the Astrophysical Journal, focused on dust originating in the Kuiper belt and how some of this dust is expected to be spatially structured due to resonant interactions with Neptune. This phenomenon may be quite common in other planetary systems, with recent images of Epsilon Eridani perhaps providing a prime example of a Kuiper disk analog. After graduating

This has led opponents of vaccination to question its safety, efficacy and necessity. In an interview with Professor Elizabeth Miller, we discuss the continuum of beliefs held by vaccine refusers and hesitators, the resulting health consequences, and ways in which health professionals and industry regulators can help promote transparency to better convey the substantial health benefits of vaccination.

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available In the case of Oliveira’s Doomed Love (Amor de Perdição, 1978 (an adaptation of the homonymous classic Portuguese novel, Bresson’s model theory provides an adequate theoretical model for a melodrama in which characters, ‘hit by fate,’ are following their destinies as if ‘under hypnosis.’ Besides a typically frontal, iconic representation of bodies thoroughly framed by windows, doors, and mirrors, in this and many other films by Oliveira, the intermedial figure of tableau vivant also reveals the movement-stillness mechanisms of the medium of film by turning, under our eyes, the body into a picture. His Abraham’s Valley (Vale Abraão, 1993 is also relevant for a fetishistic representation of (female feet and legs. This visual detail, somewhat reminding of Buñuel’s similar obsession, is not only subversive in terms of representation of socio-cultural taboos, but is also providing a compelling sensual experience of both the body and the medium.

  18. A TERRITORIALIDADE DA CRIMINALIDADE VIOLENTA NO BAIRRO JARDIM DAS OLIVEIRA - FORTALEZA - CE

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available The city of Fortaleza has been facing a progressive increase in the process of socioterritorial segmentation. Territoriality such as condominiums, shopping malls and territorialized confl icts among social groups are part of the same context, the increase of violence in Brazilian cities. Territorialized confl icts seem to multiply throughout the metropolis of Ceará, reaching other cities. Lately, neighborhoods that have shown a high rate of violence in Fortaleza are spaces with strong territorial fi ght. Fake identities over the years lead to rivalries, feud, revenge and other materialized feelings in those territories prevailing violence and fear. As to a more effective approach to the issues addressed, this research aims at studying the confl icts developed in the neighborhood of Bom Jardim, located southeast of the city of Fortaleza-CE. According to data from CEVEPI/SMF, in 2006, Bom Jardim was the second most violent concerning the variable murder. In this neighborhood, deaths have been the result of territorial clashes among microgroups belonging mainly to Trancedo Neves e Tasso Jereissati. Jardim das Oliveira is not considered a "closed" or "homogeneous" neighborhood concerning identity, but a mosaic of territory with their territorialities. This paper also argues that the assault or committed violence by youth has a remarkable socioterritorial dynamic. In the specific case of violent criminality, it seems to be a marked concentration by gender, race, marital status and age. Being so, young black and/or brown people of stigmatized areas are the main victims of homicides in the city of Fortaleza.

    The objective of this study was to adapt the Brazilian version, and verify the validity, reliability and internal consistency of the Oliveira questionnaire on low back pain in young people. The questionnaire was translated from European Portuguese into Brazilian Portuguese by means of translation and re-translation. The validity of the contents was determined by experts who analyzed the clarity and pertinence of the questions. Fifteen young people aged 15 to 18 took part in the pre-test step (qualitative analysis), 40 in the test-retest (reliability) and 679 in the evaluation of internal consistency. The intra-class correlation coefficient and Spearman's correlation coefficient were used in the reliability analysis (test-retest), and Cronbach's alpha to determine the internal consistency (stability). In the translation phase the questionnaire was modified and considered suitable, observing similarity and equivalence of the two versions. After being corrected by the experts in the validation of the contents, the instrument was considered suitable and valid, and in the pre-test, the young people suggested some modifications to make the questionnaire more succinct. With respect to reliability, the values for the intra-class correlation coefficient were between 0.512 - acceptable and 1 - excellent and Spearman's correlation coefficient varied between 0.525 and 1, classifying the instrument as reproducible. The internal consistency was considered acceptable with a 0.757 Cronbach's alpha. The Oliveira questionnaire was choosen since it has been used in several Portuguese studies; moreover, it addresses the need to raise data regarding low back pain and associated risk factors. The Brazilian version of the Oliveira questionnaire on low back pain in young people showed valid and reliable cultural adaptation, with good reliability and stability.

    The Elizabeth Islands in Massachusetts that separate Vineyard Sound from Buzzards Bay are the remnants of a moraine (unconsolidated glacial sediment deposited at an ice sheet margin; Oldale and O’Hara, 1984). The most recent glacial ice retreat in this region occurred between 25,000 and 20,000 years ago, and the subsequent rise in sea level that followed deglaciation caused differences in the seafloor character between Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound. The relatively rough seafloor of Vineyard Sound reflects widespread exposure of glacial material. Shoals mark the location of recessional ice contact material, and deep channels illustrate where meltwater drainage incised glacial deposits. Following ice retreat from the Elizabeth Islands, a glacial lake formed across the mouth of Buzzards Bay, when the lake drained, it scoured two deep channels at the southern end of the bay. Sea level rise began to inundate Vineyard Sound and Buzzards Bay about 8,000 years ago and continues to modify the modern seafloor (Robb and Oldale, 1977). Fine-grained marine and estuarine sediments were deposited in the partially protected setting of Buzzards Bay. These deposits, up to 10 meters in thickness, buried the high-relief glacial landscape and created the generally smooth modern seafloor. In contrast, the Vineyard Sound of today experiences strong tidal currents, which largely prevent the deposition of fine-grained material and constantly rework the glacial sand and gravel within shoals. The seafloor of the sound largely reflects the contours of the ancient glaciated landscape that existed before sea level began to rise. The bathymetric data used to create the hillshaded relief image of the seafloor were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management and supplemented with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration hydrographic survey data. The map shows the detailed bathymetry of Buzzards Bay and Vineyard

Le roman est également lu dans le contexte de sa publication puisque Spencer fut perçue comme une traîtresse par les Sudistes. Spencer utilise des sujets impopulaires pour révéler le paradoxe au cœur de la manière de vivre sudiste et montre combien le passé se rejoue constamment dans le présent.Elizabeth Spencer’s third novel, The Voice at the Back Door (1956, is part of her Mississippi cycle. It deals with race relations and southern violence, two highly controversial issues at the time since the Civil Rights Movements were beginning. The novel, reminiscent of William Faulkner’s Intruder in the Dust (1948, stages the search for a culprit after the murder of a white man. This paper focuses on Spencer’s portrait of southern manners and interracial relationships and analyzes the novel in the context of its publication. It will show that Spencer uses unpopular topics to expose the paradox at the core of the southern way of life and show that the past is constantly reenacted in the present.

    Full Text Available Victor Klemperers Tagebücher Ich will Zeugnis ablegen bis zum letzten: Tagebücher 1933-1945 haben nach ihrem Erscheinen Mitte der 1990er Jahre ein starkes Echo gefunden und gehören inzwischen zum Kanon der Tagebuchliteratur. Das zweibändige, während der nationalsozialistischen Diktatur entstandene Tagebuchwerk beschreibt die Lebenswelt eines deutsch-jüdischen Verfolgten im Dritten Reich. Der Antisemitismus zwang den Philologen zu einer Auseinandersetzung mit dem Relevanzverlust seiner Assimilationsbemühungen und seiner Kennzeichnung als Jude. Eine rekurrente Kompensationstaktik gegen seine erzwungene Randstellung besteht in der sprachkritischen Demontierung des Rassendenkens, um die Ungültigkeit des Antisemitismus nachzuweisen. Die Beobachtungen zur Lingua Tertii Imperii, die er in den Tagebuchblättern aufschrieb, wurden immer mehr zu seinem eigentlichen Werk. Das Tagebuch ist vor diesem Hintergrund in weiten Teilen zum Arbeitsjournal für die Sprachund Kulturanalysen Klemperers geworden. Der Interdependenz von Sprachkritik und Mentalitätsgeschichte in Klemperers Analyse der Sprache des Dritten Reiches gilt im vorliegenden Aufsatz das Hauptinteresse. Im ersten Teil wird der Frage nachgegangen, auf welche Art und Weise Victor Klemperer in seinen Notizen die Beziehung zwischen Sprache, Ideologie und Mentalität verstand. Im zweiten Teil wird unter Rückgriff auf Judith Butler und Louis Althusser in den Vordergrund gerückt, wie Victor Klemperer im Tagebuch vor Augen führt, dass das verletzende Sprechen gegen Juden im Nationalsozialismus eine subjektkonstituierende Wirkung hatte. Im letzten Teil des Aufsatzes gilt das Hauptaugenmerk der vom Tagebuchautor festgestellten diskursiven Einverleibung antisemitischer Rhetorik durch die verfolgte jüdische Bevölkerung.

  12. The Impact of the Feminist Heroine: Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice

    2014-05-01

    Full Text Available This paper critically examines the feminist significance of Elizabeth Bennet, heroine of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The feminist view found in Pride and Prejudice is well-supported in literary criticism yet little discussion has focused on Elizabeth’s feminism as seen in the prominent contrast to her female foils within the novel, namely Caroline, Jane, and Charlotte. Each of these women conforms to the socially imposed gender norms of Regency England, while Elizabeth artfully challenges gender inequality. As other women adapt their views to increase their chances of marriage, Elizabeth persistently refuses to capitulate. Defying traditional gender norms, Elizabeth affirms her feminist perspective by helping to shape Mr. Darcy’s moral character to match her own. Elizabeth inspires Mr. Darcy to set aside the pride he has in his high station in society in order to win her affections and take her hand in marriage. I argue that Elizabeth’s character is not feminist in isolation, but is understood only in contrast to Caroline, Jane, and Charlotte. This claim is supported by an in-depth comparison of Elizabeth and each of the female foils.

  13. The death of Sir Victor Horsley (1857-1916) and his burial in Amarah.

    Sir Victor Alexander Haden Horsley (1857-1916), the pioneering British neurological surgeon, passed away 100 years ago. He died young in his sixtieth year from the effects of heat stroke while serving as consulting military surgeon to the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force in Amarah, modern-day Iraq, and was buried in the now largely abandoned "Amara War Cemetery." By the time of his death in 1916, Victor Horsley had established himself as one of the most eminent innovators of modern neurological surgery. His pioneering researches in cerebral physiology earned him an early reputation in the field, and his experiences with vivisection allowed him to confidently operate on the brain and spinal cord at a time when surgical intervention of the nervous system was fraught with uncertainty. Outside the operating theatre, Horsley was a proud advocate for a number of sometimes controversial sociopolitical issues; national temperance, women's suffrage, and medical unionism particularly interested him. He brought the same courageousness to the British army during the First World War, and labored tirelessly under considerable hardships to improve the conditions for soldiers. Otherwise robust and healthy, it was only through great self-denial and overwork that Horsley suddenly succumbed to the burning heat of Mesopotamia. He died as he lived-a fearless and painstaking fighter for the common man. His was a most beautiful life of unselfish devotion to others.

    Full Text Available The paper discusses the relationship between patriarchy and formation of the Brazilian nation from a feminist perspective. From the works “Populações Meridionais do Brasil”, by Oliveira Vianna e “Raízes do Brasil”, by Sérgio Buarque de Holanda, I question the reference to the concept of patriarchy, bringing to the debate on the formation of Brazil the underlying asymmetric relations between men and women brought by such a concept. This approach allows for further discussion on the relationship between public and private spheres and the nation's formation, going beyond the criticism of the overlapping of public and private realms, present on Brazilian social thought patriarchal domination analysis.

  16. Toxicity of trace metals to Acartia tonsa in the Elizabeth River and southern Chesapeake Bay

    1990-03-01

    Dissolved zinc and copper and free cupric ions were present at high concentrations in water from the Elizabeth River estuary (a polluted tributary of the southern Chesapeake Bay) when compared to values in nearby Hampton Roads and lower Chesapeake Bay. Zinc concentrations at three stations in the Elizabeth River ranged from 87 to 1550 nM compared to values of 3·1 to 16 nM at four stations in the southern Chesapeake Bay. Likewise, free cupric ion concentration ranged from 10 -11·6 to 10 -10·1 M at the Elizabeth River stations, but was appreciably lower (10 -12·3 to 10 -12·6 M) in samples from Hampton Roads and the lower bay. In bioassays conducted with the copepod Acartia tonsa, the survival of naupliar larvae was much lower in Elizabeth River samples, containing high levels of copper and zinc, than in samples from the Chesapeake Bay or Newport River estuary which contained much lower levels of these metals. Based on previous results in trace metal ion buffered media, measured free cupric ion concentrations and estimated free zinc ion concentrations appear to have been high enough in the Elizabeth River samples to account for at least some of the observed decrease in larval survival. Furthermore, the addition of chelators, EDTA and NTA, that complex and detoxify copper and zinc (as well as cadmium, nickel and lead) significantly increased larval survival in the Elizabeth River samples. These results strongly support the hypothesis that elevated levels of copper and zinc (and possibly other toxic trace metals) occur at sufficiently high concentrations in Elizabeth River water to adversely affect Acartia tonsa and other sensitive estuarine organisms.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tetyana Shevchuk

    2013-08-01

    Full Text Available The article deals with the aesthetic paradigm of the novel "Life of Insects" (1993, written by well-known Russian writer Victor Pelevin. Spiritual evolution or degradation of the heroes is represented by their metamorphosis from person to insect or vice versa. Actual questions of the novel are focused on the problems of spiritual vacuum, lost dignity, the meaning of life, the relationship to life as most rare and precious gift, the horror to live at the level of animal existence. The author models the reality, in which the insect mask captures the essence of the person. The focus is on the anthropocentric code of the novel, the evolutionary and regressive reasons, connected with the transmutations of the heroes.

    Full Text Available In 1917 Rudolf Otto published the book The Sacred and proposing the recognition of the irrational aspect as the foundation and maintainer of religious expression by means of analogies and antonyms that the called the numinous. Later, at a conference in1937, Carl Gustav Jung uses the term numinous to clarify what he meant by religion, recognizing this as an observation on what grabs consciousness, thus extending the idea of the numinous to practice and clinical studies. Victor White, Jung's main collaborator in the field of theology, weaves a critical to Otto and Jung's position front to the understanding of religious phenomena, stating that it presents a unilateralism in recognition that only their irrational sphere supports religion. This article aims to lead to a theoretical discussion as to White's reflections on the idea of numinous, in contrast to the positions of Otto and Jung.

  1. La presencia del lector en la narrativa de Victor Hugo (1823-1834

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Francisco Aiello

    2008-04-01

    Full Text Available The reader is very present in Victor Hugo’s novels published during the period 1823-1834 thanks to different textual strategies. So there is a rich dialogue between him and the author. Both of them are con-sidered in this article as textual construc-tions instead of empiric beings. The analysis shows that the relationship author-reader is clearly asymmetric as it is only the author who has got the control of the stories and its interpretation. That is why he decides to instruct the reader, whose reading skills are poor, by helping him to understand and by teaching him anything that could be neces-sary to appreciate the novel. However, this author proposes a familiar way of care to the reader inviting him to experience amusement through little enigmas or show-ing complicity.

    2015-05-01

    There is a rich tradition of writings about the foundation of psychology laboratories, particularly in the United States but also in France. Various documents exist concerning former German laboratories in American and French literature. But the most interesting French paper was certainly written by a young psychologist named Victor Henri (1872-1940) who was a close collaborator of Alfred Binet (1857-1911) in the 1890s. Visiting various psychology laboratories, he wrote, in 1893, a clear description of the laboratories of Wundt, G. E. Müller, Martius and Ebbinghaus. An English translation is given of Henri's paper and the historical importance of his contribution is here expounded by contrasting the German and French psychologies of the time.

    2013-01-01

    In The Ends of Harm Victor Tadros develops an alternative to consequentialist, and non-consequentialist retributivist, accounts of the justifiability of punishment: the duty view. Crucial to this view is the claim that wrongdoers incur an enforceable duty to remedy their wrongs. They cannot undo...... to Tadros the ‘means principle’ that we should not harm others as a means, properly construed, does not apply to cases where the victim has an enforceable duty to bear the kind of harm that he or she is being made to suffer. In this article, I shall express reservations about Tadros’ defense...... and interpretation of the means principle. In presenting his position, Tadros also sets out some interesting anti-retributivist considerations casting doubt on the idea that wrongdoers’ suffering is non-instrumentally good. I shall challenge these. Finally, I shall suggest that the duty view may have...

  3. From victim to victor: "breaking bad" and the dark potential of the terminally empowered.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lewis, Mark A

    2013-12-01

    As treatments for malignancies have improved incrementally over the preceding decades, patients with cancer have been encouraged to reject an attitude of hopelessness and to choose instead the role of fighters. The recasting of the cancer patient as warrior and winner, upheld through the Livestrong movement, reaches its monstrous apotheosis in the form of Walter White, the central figure in the AMC television series "Breaking Bad." The story begins with Walt as the protagonist, but the arc of this conversion narrative transforms him into the antagonist, exploring the darkest potential of his post-diagnosis empowerment. His awareness of his own mortality enables him to take risks that his more rational, pre-cancer self would have avoided. Rather than being rendered impotent by fear of an impending death, he finds himself emboldened, liberated from behavioral norms, capable of heretofore-unthinkable violence and even murder. As Walt moves from victim to victor, the viewer realizes the perils of a survive-at-all-costs mentality and is forced to question their own, initially sympathetic perception of Walt. The series subverts the notion of the cancer patient made noble through struggle by portraying a man betrayed by his own body who then becomes willing to betray everything else in the amoral service of his pride.

  5. Victor Pelevin's Novel about Vampires as the form of Reflection on Postmodernism

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Anastasya L. Bobileva

    2017-09-01

    Full Text Available The current stage of culture development is usually defined as post-postmodern. Although this term is not well established and is interpreted differently, in any case it involves the overcoming of postmodernism. In Russian literature we should mention Victor Pelevin among the authors, whose works demonstrate the post-postmodernist tendencies most clearly. The evolution of his prose testifies that the postmodern worldview and the very mechanism of postmodern writing has become the subject of critical reflection in the late works of the writer. The novel by V. Pelevin "Empire V" (2006 is the material of the analysis in the article. The aim of the study is to reveal the nature and the forms of postmodernism reflection manifested in this work. During the analysis the authors established that Pelevin plays with a popular genre of mass culture - a novel about vampires, using it as a kind of metaphorical way to clarify the nature of postmodern literature, which appropriates, absorbs and exploits the forms, ideas and motives earlier developed in culture. Postmodernists, like vampires, borrow information from different sources and use "someone else's blood" for their own purposes. Combining the "languages" of mass and elite cultures, activating the intertextual links, Pelevin eventually pursues antipostomodernist goals: he reveals the totality of the simulativity, proves that mass culture is ready to absorb postmodernism, and turn it into an empty signifier. This can be defined as a kind of cultural reflection, as a form of the self-reflection and writer’s cognition on the state of modern culture.

    Entertainment-education (E-E) approaches for young audiences continue to evolve in order to keep stride with younger generations' affinity for technology. E-E and novelas have been used with a wide variety of audiences in the United States, in particular hard-to-reach Latino populations, and have demonstrated effectiveness in disseminating culturally relevant prevention information for a wide variety of health-related risk factors and behaviors. This study discusses the formative research and active engagement of Latino youth living in Langley Park, Maryland, for the development and filming of an innovative 6-episode webnovela titled Victor and Erika (V&E). V&E is part of a larger branding strategy of the Adelante Positive Youth Development intervention that seeks to prevent substance abuse, sexual risk, and interpersonal violence among Latino youth; V&E is also an intervention component. The V&E webnovela is a dramatic portrayal of the lives of 2 immigrant Latino teenagers that also disseminates risk prevention messages. The storyline represents the turning the corner (to a better life) theme that underlies the Adelante intervention brand. Formative research was conducted for character development (n = 20) and creative development of the episodes (n = 14). Results of the formative research showed that youth recommended inclusion of the following topics in V&E episodes: sex, unintended pregnancy, fidelity, trust, family dynamics, immigration status, violence, school dropout, respect, home life, and poverty. Detailed character and episode descriptions are provided, and the implications of using the V&E series as a tool for in-person and online engagement of youth and the dissemination of prevention messages are also discussed.

    The article highlights the important work of the Russian psychiatrist Victor Khrisanfovich Kandinsky. His merits, in particular those in the fields of hallucinations and schizophrenias, have hitherto been neglected despite the fact that several of his articles have been published in German medical journals. He defined the term pseudohallucination in a way which is still common today. For him the criterion which separates it from real hallucinations was that the patient is aware of the fallacy of the phenomena perceived. Furthermore, his concept of ideophrenia can be regarded as a one of the precursors to today's concept of schizophrenias.

Textual evidence andcommentaries on Coetzee’s fictional world and thematic concerns are provided to single out the stages of this unsettling metamorphosis, a process through which Costello wavers between Franciscan self-effacement and dictatorial omniscience. In the upshot, the striving after a recognition of animal dignity is seemingly supplanted by a debasement of the human person into a pet or a beast, as though she had lost herself in a labyrinth of fumbling speculation.O problema vexatório sobre os direitos dos animais e das pessoas é analisado pela trilogia de Coetzee, ou seja, a partir das conferências e das experiências de Elizabeth Costello, nas quais propõe sua posição anticartesiana e sua imaginação simpatética defendida em The lives of animals, versando sobre as oito aulas que ela ministra como ‘uma foca circense’ ou até quando é tutelada (em Elizabeth Costello, até Slow man, onde se transforma na ‘fêmeaCostello’, uma loba que age como predadora junto ao lento Paul Rayment.

    Fung, V

    1998-01-01

    Li & Fung, Hong Kong's largest export trading company, has been an innovator in supply chain management--a topic of increasing importance to many senior executives. In this interview, chairman Victor Fung explains both the philosophy behind supply chain management and the specific practices that Li & Fung has developed to reduce costs and lead times, allowing its customers to buy "closer to the market." Li & Fung has been a pioneer in "dispersed manufacturing." It performs the higher-value-added tasks such as design and quality control in Hong Kong, and outsources the lower-value-added tasks to the best possible locations around the world. The result is something new: a truly global product. To produce a garment, for example, the company might purchase yarn from Korea that will be woven and dyed in Taiwan, then shipped to Thailand for final assembly, where it will be matched with zippers from a Japanese company. For every order, the goal is to customize the value chain to meet the customer's specific needs. To be run effectively, Victor Fung maintains, trading companies have to be small and entrepreneurial. He describes the organizational approaches that keep the company that way despite its growing size and geographic scope: its organization around small, customer-focused units; its incentives and compensation structure; and its use of venture capital as a vehicle for business development. As Asia's economic crisis continues, chairman Fung sees a new model of companies emerging--companies that are, like Li & Fung, narrowly focused and professionally managed.

    Full Text Available The article analyses the connection between modalities of letter writing and the relation between writer and addressee. We take into consideration the case of Elizabeth I of England, situated in the overall panorama of early modern European historiography. The English Queen was a prolific and skilful letter writer, endowed with an uncommon talent for foreign languages; but she was also, thanks to her role, the willing or unwilling recipient of thousands of epistles. By selecting two different corpora of letters, from and to the Queen, it is possible to explore how personal relations, degree of acquaintance, respective status and purpose of the letter influence the very structure of the genre.

  1. Gender, culture, and astrophysical fieldwork: Elizabeth Campbell and the Lick Observatory-Crocker eclipse expeditions.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pang, A. S.-K.

    The article is organized as follows. It begins with an overview of women in nineteenth-century American science. It then describes the culture of mountaintop observatories and life on Mount Hamilton. Elizabeth Campbell's unique role in the Crocker-Lick expeditions drew upon her equally unique role in the observatory, and also on the meaning given to women's work in general on the mountain. The bulk of the article focuses on the Campbells and their expeditions to India in 1898, Spain in 1905, and the South Pacific in 1908. The third section compares the Lick Observatory expeditions to those conducted by David Todd of Amherst College. Todd's wife, Mabel Loomis Todd, went into the field several times with her husband, but her place in the field was radically different from Elizabeth Campbell's, a difference that can be ascribed to a combination of local culture and personality. Finally, it compares American expeditions to British expeditions of the period, to see what the absence of British women on expeditions can tell us about the way national scientific styles and cultures affected gender roles in science.

    2006-11-01

    Activity patterns and time budgets of bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus) were studied in a free-ranging population in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda from August 2000 to January 2002. We investigated differences in activity patterns in relation to daytime, season, sun radiation, moonlight, age and sex. Bushbuck were found to show peak activities around sunrise and at dawn. No difference in the mean activity rates was found between the dry and wet season. Daytime activity was not predicted by differences in sun radiation, nor was nighttime activity predicted by the presence or absence of moonlight. We found the activity of adult territorial males to be strongly positively correlated with that of females, whereas the activity of young-adult non-territorial males was not significantly correlated with the activity of females. This suggests that young-adult males shift their peak activity to phases when adult territorial males are less active.

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper examines the relationship between two 20th-century American poets, Elizabeth Coatsworth and her daughter, Kate Barnes. Both women mined their physical and personal geographies to create their work; both labored in the shadows of domineering literary husbands. Elizabeth’s early poetry is economical in language, following literary conventions shaped by Eastern poets and Imagists of her era. Kate’s work echoes her mother’s painterly eye, yet is informed by the feminist poetry of her generation. Their dynamic relationship as mother and daughter, both struggling with service to the prevailing Western patriarchy, duties of domestication and docility, also inform their writing. This paper draws from Coatsworth’s poems, essays, and memoir, and Barnes’ poems, interviews, and epistolary archives, which shed light on her relationship with her renowned mother.

Garcke were studied in a restricted area at the campus of the Universidade Federal de Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil. There were differences among plant species but not among individuals in relation to the flowering time along the day and the time at which the flowers were visited by bees. Melissoptila cnecomala (Moure, 1944 and Cephalurgus anomalus Moure & Oliveira, 1962 were the most frequent visitors. Both species foraged on flowers for nectar and pollen. C. anomalus visited mainly plants with anthesis in the morning and M. cnecomala plants with anthesis in the afternoon. This fact sugests that those species of bees may be showing contrasting foraging strategies and can share the floral resources of Sida and Malvastrum. The males of C. anomalus mate on flowers of Sida and exhibit a behavior known as rendevouz pollination.

    The objectives of the study were to find out the prevalence and distribution of entero-parasitism and determine the prevalence of coproantigens of Taenia solium in the Andean community of Huancapi, Province of Victor Fajardo, Ayacucho, Peru. In the observational, transversal-descriptive study carried out between July and September 2000, by the Ritchie and Ziehl-Neelsen methods, modified by Cryptosporidium sp., samples of feces from 312 persons of the general population were examined. In addition, the presence of coproantigens of T. solium was investigated by the ELISA method. 77.88% (243) were positive to one or more entero-parasites. The prevalence for each protozoan specie is: 66.99% for Entamoeba coli; 12,50% for Iodamoeba butschlii; 10.90% for Chilomastix mesnili and 10.57% for Giardia lamblia; for the helminthes it was: 4.49% for Ascaris lumbricoides; 3.52% for Hymenolepis nana and 1.28% for Trichuris trichiura. Coproantigens of T. solium were detected in 3.52% of the samples. The prevailing commensal protozoan indicate that there are deficiencies in the basic sanitary services, particularly in water for domestic consumption. Huancapi is a new endemic zone for infection by T. solium.

    The VICTOR study showed comparable efficacy of treatment with intravenous ganciclovir and oral valganciclovir for cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease in solid organ transplant recipients. Oral therapy is now recommended treatment in clinical practice and guidelines. The VICTOR biobank was used in a series of post hoc analyses that yielded unique and clinically valuable insights into CMV treatment and pathogenesis. For example, the importance of tailoring therapy to initial viral load, the effect of immunosuppression on outcomes, and the need to continue therapy until undetectable viral load to prevent recurrence and emergence of resistant strains. Data were also used to validate the use of international units (IU) in quantitative measurements of CMV DNAemia, which may help future studies to define relevant cutoffs for treatment guidance. The analyses also showed the importance of inflammation on viral outcomes and identified potential targets for future studies. Here we summarize the valuable lessons learned from analysis of the VICTOR data set and sample repository. © The Author 2016.

    An in-depth epidemiological investigation on intestinal parasite infections in an impoverished area of Port Elizabeth, South Africa provides a unique opportunity for research on its impact on children's physical fitness, cognitive performance and psychosocial health. Additionally, we will screen risk factors for the development of diabetes and hypertension in adulthood. A 2-year longitudinal cohort study will be conducted, consisting of three cross-sectional surveys (baseline and two follow-ups), in eight historically black and coloured (mixed race) primary schools located in different townships in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Approximately 1000 Grade 4 primary schoolchildren, aged 8 to 12 years, will be enrolled and followed. At each survey, disease status, anthropometry and levels of physical fitness, cognitive performance and psychosocial health will be assessed. After each survey, individuals diagnosed with parasitic worm infections will be treated with anthelminthic drugs, while children with other infections will be referred to local clinics. Based on baseline results, interventions will be tailored to the local settings, embedded within the study and implemented in half of the schools, while the remaining schools will serve as controls. Implementation of the interventions will take place over two 8-week periods. The effect of interventions will be determined with predefined health parameters. This study will shed new light on the health burden incurred by children in deprived urban settings of South Africa and provide guidance for specific health interventions. Challenges foreseen in the conduct of this study include: (i) difficulty in obtaining written informed consent from parents/guardians; (ii) administration of questionnaires in schools where three languages are spoken (Afrikaans, Xhosa and English); (iii) challenges in grasping concepts of psychosocial health among schoolchildren using a questionnaire; and (iv) loss to follow-up due to the study

    The Port Elizabeth Museum houses the consolidated herpetological collections of three provincial museums of the Eastern Cape, South Africa: the Port Elizabeth Museum (Port Elizabeth), the Amatole (previously Kaffarian) Museum (King Williams Town), and the Albany Museum (Grahamstown). Under John Hewitt, Albany Museum was the main centre of herpetological research in South Africa from 1910-1940, and he described numerous new species, many based on material in the museum collection. The types and other material from the Albany Museum are now incorporated into the Port Elizabeth Museum Herpetology collection (PEM). Due to the vague typification of much of Hewitt's material, the loss of the original catalogues in a fire and the subsequent deterioration of specimen labels, the identification of this type material is often troublesome. Significant herpetological research has been undertaken at the PEM in the last 35 years, and the collection has grown to be the third largest in Africa. During this period, numerous additional types have been deposited in the PEM collection, generated by active taxonomic research in the museum. As a consequence, 43 different amphibian taxa are represented by 37 primary and 151 secondary type specimens in the collection. This catalogue provides the first documentation of these types. It provides the original name, the original publication date, journal number and pagination, reference to illustrations, current name, museum collection number, type locality, notes on the type status, and photographs of all holotypes and lectotypes. Where necessary to maintain nomenclatural stability, and where confused type series are housed in the PEM collection, lectotypes and paralectotypes are nominated.

    Set during the midst of the London Blitz, Elizabeth Bowen’s The Heat of the Day revolves around a narrative of espionage, but unlike many novels from the spy genre, it refuses to disclose all of its secrets. Instead, the novel’s dense and complex language, which so effectively expresses the dislocating effects of a city under attack, resists an easy or uncomplicated reading. This article examines the motif of reading within the novel, which manifests when its protagonist, Stell...

    Full Text Available Georgian actress and author Mary Robinson famously wore a miniature portrait of her royal lover, the Prince of Wales, whom she captivated in the Shakespearean breaches role of Perdita. Intriguingly, Robinson’s final stage appearance was as the cross-dressing heroine of The Miniature Picture (1781, a three-act comedy penned by writer and socialite Lady Elizabeth Craven, later Baroness Craven and Margravine of Brandenburg-Ansbach. The play’s action, initiated by the threat of exposure, is driven by Eliza Camply, who aims to retrieve her miniature from the man who left her. Craven, like the actress playing her enterprising protagonist Eliza Camply, was no stranger to celebrity and infamy. Craven’s preoccupation with image-management in this play aligns with the experiences and views she recorded in her travel narrative A Journey through the Crimea to Constantinople (1789, and her Memoirs (1826. This article reads The Miniature Picture as a generically fluid comedy about female objectification, the misuse of women’s bodies and images in practices of courtship and marriage, and in the celebrity culture the playwright negotiated throughout her life as an aristocratic woman embroiled in both sexual scandal and theatrical life.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ratna Asmarani

    2017-04-01

    Full Text Available The aim of the paper entitled ―Victorian Femme Fatale in Mary Elizabeth Braddon‘s Novel Entitled Lady Audley‟s Secret‖ is to analyze the intricate life of the female main character as a representation of Victorian femme fatale. Feminist criticism and gynocritics are used as a frame of analysis supported by the concepts of femme fatale, fatalism, and Victorian femininity. The result indicates that although femme fatale is fatal to men, she leads a fatalistic life in a patriarchal Victorian society. Her success to pursue a wealthy life using her femininity is short-lived followed by years of exile in a private and luxurious asylum. Through her portrayal of the female main character‘s life as a femme fatale, the female writer launches two-edged criticism. She criticizes the woman who exploits her femininity to get excessive material gain and at the same time she criticizes the Victorian society which prevents a single (-parent woman to have a decent life using her skills not her femininity.

  2. A Sociopolitical Ecofeminist Reading of Selected Animal Poems by Elizabeth Bishop

    Shadi Neimneh

    2018-02-01

    Full Text Available This article examines the sociopolitical vision of some of Elizabeth Bishop’s poems from an ecofeminist critical perspective. Bishop, a twentieth-century American poet, uses animals and natural elements to manifest her attachment to nature (and women by implication, thus reflecting an oppressed feminist voice through the theme of abused, weak nature. By relating Bishop’s poems to W. B. Yeats’s poem Leda and the Swan, we foreground an ecofeminist relation between the Greek myth Yeats employed and Bishop’s poems. Our contribution lies in the multilayered pattern of ecofeminist defense this article traces in poems like Giant Snail, Giant Toad, Strayed Crab, The Armadillo, Sandpiper, The Moose and Trouvée. The conclusion emphasizes the attempts Bishop shoulders through her animal poetry to renew the old man-nature relation of balance and justice and simultaneously to elevate woman/nature. Bishop's poetry, it is argued, exceeds the personal or subjective and thus contains socio-political, anti-patriarchal thrusts explored in this article through an ecofeminist lens.

    Abstract: Researchers, policymakers, business, and industry have indicated that the United States will experience a future shortage of professionals in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Several strategies have been suggested to address this impending shortage, one of which includes increasing the representation of females and minorities in the STEM fields. In order to increase the representation of underrepresented students in the STEM fields, it is important to understand the motivational factors that impact underrepresented students' interest in STEM academics and extracurricular programs. Research indicates that greater confidence leads to greater interest and vice versa (Denissen et al., 2007). In this paper, the mathematics research team examined the role of practical research experience during the summer for talented minority secondary students studying in STEM fields. An undergraduate research mathematics team focused on the link between summer research and the choice of an undergraduate discipline. A Chi Square Statistical Test was used to examine Likert Scale results on the attitude of students participating in the 2006-2012 Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) Summer Research Programs for secondary students. This research was performed at Elizabeth City State University located in northeastern North Carolina about the factors that impact underrepresented students' choices of STEM related majors in college. Results can be used to inform and guide educators, administrators, and policy makers in developing programs and policy that support and encourage the STEM development of underrepresented students.

  4. A Counter-Colonial Speculation on Elizabeth Rata’s –ism

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available In Maori thought, the possibility exists for a sort of lateral thinking that does not necessarily directly respond to another’s utterance or opinion but that considers some of the creative and arbitrary themes that arise. In this article, I employ this counter-colonial speculation, keeping in mind a Maori worldview whilst thinking in the wake of Elizabeth Rata’s “Ethnic Ideologies in New Zealand Education: What’s Wrong with Kaupapa Maori?” The speculative powers that Maori have at our disposal here have undoubtedly been employed in a number of ways throughout Maori history; here, I use them in a way that does not directly respond to a prompt. Although Rata’s true aim is to critique kaupapa Maori, she inadvertently brings my attention to a particular characteristic of her writing—the suffix -ism. The fact that it saturates her writing in this article leads me to consider the broader issues associated with instrumentalist language, and the impact of the -ism on a Maori relationship with things in the world. It emerges that, although Rata may be controversial for Maori in her views, her writing is useful for some unintended reasons, as it prompts some thinking around the appropriateness of the -ism for Maori.

From 1956 through 1960, José de Oliveira Reis reassumes, for the last time, the Department of Urban Planning of Distrito Federal City Hall, actively taking part in the ascribed institutional construction-creationimprovement process of municipal organs responsible for the planning, financing and execution of public urban works. In this case, for the creation of the Superintendency of Urban Planning and Sanitation (SURSAN of the Special Fund for Public Works, and for the implementation of the Execution Plan issued in deliberations in Law no. 899, of November 28th 1957. The understanding of the national context – in the scope of the Brazilian Municipalist Movement – of this whole process of the creation of municipal instances in the urban planning sector, during the 1950s, is also fundamental for comprehending engineer José de Oliveira Reis’s positions as the director of the Department.

    Wilkinson, M; Isler, H

    1999-01-01

    This is a presentation of a doctoral thesis of 1870. The author was English but the thesis and the examinations were in French. Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, usually referred to as E.G.A., was the first woman in Britain to obtain the title of M.D., but not the first in Europe. Nadeshda Prokofevna Suslova, a Russian, received her M.D. in 1867 in Zurich, the most liberal university at that time, soon to be flooded by female students from Russia. E.G.A. had been applying to the few possible European universities but she settled for Paris after the Empress Eugenie had decided that she should be accepted there. This meant that she could succeed without having to be a Paris resident, just by writing a thesis and passing a series of examinations presided over by Paul Broca. This was important as she was already conducting private and dispensary practice, and could not find a locum (she insisted on a woman). E.G.A. had suffered many setbacks, for being a woman, as such being unacceptable in dissection rooms and operating theatres, and generally in a professional career where women were unheard of. She was finally permitted to receive her medical diploma from the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London. She wrote about her thesis: "I have chosen Headache as its subject. I had to find a subject which could be well studied without post-mortem observations, of which I can have but very few in either private or dispensary practice; and I wished also to take a large subject, one that demanded some insight into the harmony that exists between the main physiological functions." Marcia Wilkinson (M.W.), who worked in the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital in London for 35 years, heard there of E.G.A.'s thesis on migraine and sent for it from Paris. In 1966 she translated it into English from the original French, being interested both in the subject and in the person of this resolute and lucid woman. When H. Isler found the French thesis in the British Library he intended to

    At the beginning of 1915, several months after the World War I started, Serbia was in an extremely difficult situation.The country was war-ravaged, full of sick and wounded soldiers, there was a desperate shortage of doctors, nurses and other medical personnel, and the epidemic of typhus fever exploded and violently attacked the entire country. At that time, however, a number of both foreign allied medical missions and individual volunteers, from various countries, mostly from Great Britain, came to Serbia to help. Among them mostly were women, and they were of enormous support to Serbia in that grave situation. It is estimated that there were more than 600 foreign women volunteers in Serbia at that time and that 22 of them died there. Dr. Elizabeth Ross was one of those brave volunteers who came to Serbia early in 1915. That noble Scottish lady doctor was born in 1878 and finished her medical studies at the University of Glasgow in 1901. After graduation she worked in various places in Great Britain until 1909, when she went to Persia (Iran), where she worked until the beginning of the so called Great War. When she heard of the urgent need in Serbia she left Persia as soon as she could and volunteered to serve in Serbia. She came to Kragujevac at the beginning of January 1915, where she worked at the First Military Reserve Hospital, which at that time was actually a typhus hospital. Working there intensively and devotedly for several weeks under shocking conditions she contracted typhus herself and died there on her 37th birthday on February 14th, 1915. She was buried in Kragujevac, next to two British ladies who also died in Serbia of typhus. Her grave was restored in 1980 when the town of Kragujevac started holding commemorations at the graveside every February 14th at noon to honor her and all other brave and noble women who lost their lives helping Serbia at that unfortunate time.

  9. Remote sensing land-cover change in Port Elizabeth during South Africa’s democratic transition

    Full Text Available Urban population increase has caused significant urban landscape transformation globally. Before 1994, South Africa’s highly regulated urban growth was shaped by the restrictive Prevention of Illegal Squatters Act of 1951. After the abolishment of the act in the 1980s, the period of transition to democracy in the 1990s was characterised by an unprecedented urban population influx that caused a myriad of socio-economic and environmental challenges. These challenges have consequently compounded the need to monitor urban growth for the planning and optimisation of urban spaces. The limitations of traditional mapping methods, such as surveying and photogrammetry, in urban mapping are well documented. In the recent past, satellite remote sensing has emerged as one of the most viable urban mapping tools. Using post-classification comparisons, we sought to monitor major land use and land cover (LULC changes in the city of Port Elizabeth during South Africa’s democratic transition (1990–2000. Images for 1990, 1995 and 2000 were acquired, geo-rectified and atmospherically corrected. An iterative self-organising data analysis (ISODATA was then used to generate existing LULCs. Classes generated using ISODATA were then amalgamated to the city’s major LULCs and resultant classes were validated using aerial photographs and field visits. Results showed that ‘Built-up’ and ‘Bare surface’ LULC classes had the highest increase and decrease, respectively. There was no change in the ‘Beach or dune’ LULC, whereas ‘Green vegetation’ and ‘Water’ classes had minimal changes. This study illustrates the efficacy of remote sensing in monitoring urban change and the potential of remote sensing to aid decision-making in rapidly changing urban landscapes.

  10. Marcel Duchamp, Constantin Brancusi, Victor Brauner : leurs rencontres et les retombées sur leurs œuvres

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Cristian-Robert Velescu

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Duchamp avait rencontré Brancusi en 1912, année qui marque le début d’une amitié consignée par l’histoire de l’art. Son parcours avait été fixé dans les pages de leur correspondance, conservées au Centre Georges Pompidou. Le lecteur est surpris de constater qu’il n’y a que des faits anodins qui soient consignés, tandis que les références aux conceptions artistiques sont presque totalement absentes. Toutefois, en lisant les témoignages de Duchamp conservés dans les célèbres Boîtes (verte et blanche, on se rend compte qu’il partage les conceptions platoniciennes de son ami sculpteur, chose importante, qui nous laisse formuler des suppositions concernant une influence dirigée de Brancusi dans la direction Duchamp. À son tour, durant l’intervalle 1925–1928, Victor Brauner était l’hôte de Brancusi dans l’atelier de l’impasse Ronsin. C’est ici qu’il a pu rencontrer Duchamp, qui s’y rendait fréquemment dans les années 20. Une rencontre qui a certainement eu des retombées sur l’oeuvre du futur peintre surréaliste. La preuve en est dans deux de ses toiles, Tête et deux boxeurs et Passivité courtoise. Faut-il s’étonner que le message que Duchamp avait mis dans les structures sémantiques de son chef-d’oeuvre La Mariée mise à nu par ses célibataires, même ou Le Grand Verre y avait été « logé » d’une manière évidente ? Mais alors on doit reconnaître que lors de leurs rencontres de chez Brancusi, Duchamp avait transmis à Brauner des informations très précises sur l’iconographie du Grand Verre, ainsi que sur la quatrième dimension, que le futur peintre surréaliste allait reconvertir dans les trois dimensions de l’espace ordinaire. Perçu dans cette perspective, l’atelier de l’impasse Ronsin nous semble un lieu où les idées des trois artistes ont pu communiquer d’une manière osmotique.

    The author reviews Elizabeth A. Wilson's Gut Feminism (2015), arguing that Wilson's book productively challenges some of feminist theory's most entrenched presuppositions: that social, cultural, and discursive frameworks are opposed and superior to biological ones; that biological matter is flat, sovereign, monolithic, and determining; that depression is more a cultural, historical, and psychological phenomenon than a biochemical and pharmaceutical one (and that these nominative distinctions are stable and natural); and finally, that the belly's ruminations (hunger, ingestion, digestion, peristalsis, diarrhea, constipation, and excretion) give no clue as to the complexities of entanglements between gut, psyche, subjectivity, sociality, and hostility.

Interpretations presented here are based on NOAA hydrographic survey H11076 that covers approximately 23 sq. km around Quicks Hole, a major passage through the Elizabeth Islands chain, offshore southeastern Massachusetts. Bouldery gravels overgrown with seaweed and sessile fauna dominate the sea floor in Quicks Hole, along shorelines, and on isolated bathymetric highs. These deposits, which reflect environments of erosion and nondeposition, are winnowed lags of till from the exposed Buzzards Bay moraine. The sea floor south of the Hole in Vineyard Sound is characterized by environments associated with coarse bedload transport and covered with transverse and barchanoid sand waves. Transverse waves exceed 7 m in amplitude, have slip faces predominantly oriented to the west and southwest, and have straight, slightly sinuous, or curved crests. Megaripples, which mimic asymmetry of the transverse waves but not necessarily their orientation, are commonly present on stoss slopes; current ripples are ubiquitous. These smaller bedforms suggest that transport is active and that sand waves are propagating under the present hydraulic regime. Net sediment transport is primarily to the west and southwest as evidenced by comparisons with data from an earlier hydrographic survey, orientation of barchanoid waves, and asymmetry of transverse waves and of scour marks around boulders and shipwrecks. The sea floor across the northern part of the study area in Buzzards Bay and away from the opening to Quicks Hole is more protected from wind- and tidally-driven currents. Environments here are primarily characterized by processes associated

    We use isotopic composition (δD) data from six sites in Princess Elizabeth Land (PEL) in order to reconstruct air temperature variability in this sector of East Antarctica over the last 350 years. First, we use the present-day instrumental mean annual surface air temperature data to demonstrate that the studied region (between Russia's Progress, Vostok and Mirny research stations) is characterized by uniform temperature variability. We thus construct a stacked record of the temperature anomaly for the whole sector for the period of 1958-2015. A comparison of this series with the Southern Hemisphere climatic indices shows that the short-term inter-annual temperature variability is primarily governed by the Antarctic Oscillation (AAO) and Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO) modes of atmospheric variability. However, the low-frequency temperature variability (with period > 27 years) is mainly related to the anomalies of the Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) mode. We then construct a stacked record of δD for the PEL for the period of 1654-2009 from individual normalized and filtered isotopic records obtained at six different sites (PEL2016 stacked record). We use a linear regression of this record and the stacked PEL temperature record (with an apparent slope of 9 ± 5.4 ‰ °C-1) to convert PEL2016 into a temperature scale. Analysis of PEL2016 shows a 1 ± 0.6 °C warming in this region over the last 3 centuries, with a particularly cold period from the mid-18th to the mid-19th century. A peak of cooling occurred in the 1840s - a feature previously observed in other Antarctic records. We reveal that PEL2016 correlates with a low-frequency component of IOD and suggest that the IOD mode influences the Antarctic climate by modulating the activity of cyclones that bring heat and moisture to Antarctica. We also compare PEL2016 with other Antarctic stacked isotopic records. This work is a contribution to the PAGES (Past Global Changes) and IPICS (International Partnerships in

    Full Text Available O que aqui se denomina como “acontecimento Victor de Aveyron” inaugura, no contexto das práticas do século XVIII, novas questões para os saberes e as práticas médicas e pedagógicas, e novos problemas para este estranho objeto de conhecimento: “homem”.Este texto pretende traçar, a partir dos relatórios de Jean Marc Itard, sobre a tarefa que desenvolve na tentativa de educar o menino selvagem encontrado nos bosques de Aveyron, um esboço de uma genealogia histórica, segundo a perspectiva do pensamento de Michel Foucault. Trata-se do processo de construção da aliança médico-pedagógica e seus dispositivos de poder disciplinar e de normalização que deram origem à expansão da psiquiatria, processo que não passou pela criança louca, mas pela criança idiota. Se o aparecimento de Victor para as luzes da civilização provocou a produção de um saber colonizador sobre o corpo resistente à normalização, a busca do limite do corpo selvagem, tão incapaz quanto o idiota, provocou também o surgimento do dispositivo da aliança médico-pedagógica que até hoje observamos incidir sobre os corpos infantis, mesmo considerando as diferenças de objetivos, de recursos técnicos, das práticas institucionais, e das das tentativas de inclusão social.

  3. ABOUT THE STATE OF EQUILIBRIUM BETWEEN THE TRUTHS THAT ARE SAID AND THE WORDS THAT SAY THEM: THE AESTHETICS OF NEO-REALISM AND THE SEARCH FOR WAYS OF POETICAL DOING IN THE WORKS OF CARLOS DE OLIVEIRA

    Daniel Marinho Laks

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available The article is based on the ideas of Marice Blanchot and Ezra Pound about the poetry as a condensed narrative form. The notion of an aesthetic per­ception, related to the visual and sensitive, in parallel to the perception of the text as language in the sense of communicating is presented. From this double mechanism of appreciation, imagistic-sensitive and teleologi­cal, we intend to discuss the way that the book Cantata, from Carlos de Oliveira, marks an investment in the form as an specific work of the artist that presents itself in a controversial plan to the idea of primacy of content over form, periodically affirmed as the basis of the orthodox theorization for Portuguese neo-realism. Thus, the present article understands the neo-realism not only as a strictly literary, artistic or generational movement, but as a systematic questioning on the domains of art, politics and culture.

    Seasonal, host sex and age-related variations in helminth egg and coccidian oocyst counts were investigated in a naturally infected wild bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus) population in Queen Elizabeth National Park, western Uganda from April 2000 to February 2002. The prevalence and mean intensity quantified as the number of eggs and oocysts per gram of faeces were taken as a measure of parasite burdens. Host sex and age-related differences in prevalence values were not found but the overall prevalence of Eimeria sp. was significantly higher during the rainy season, and peak counts were recorded either during or soon after a peak rainfall. A similar trend was observed for Moniezia spp., although the results were marginally not significant. There were also no significant differences in mean intensity values, relative to host sex, age or season.

    Sediment and Mytilus galloprovincialis samples collected from the Port Elizabeth Harbour were analysed for six indicator PCB congeners to assess their contamination status. The concentrations of total PCBs in sediments and M. galloprovincialis ranged from 0.56 to 2.35 ng/g dry weight and 14.48 to 21.37 ng/g wet weight, respectively. Congeners 138 and 153 were dominant and accounted for an average of 29% and 24% of total PCBs in M. galloprovincialis; 32% and 30% in sediments, respectively. Sediments are home to a wide variety of aquatic life. None of the sediments analysed exceeded the PCB limits recommended the Canadian interim sediment quality guideline and the South African recommended sediment guidelines (21.6 ng/g). Both humans and aquatic life are sensitive to the toxic effects of PCBs. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available This essay discusses how I incorporated readers theatre into a senior seminar on Jane Austen and her contemporaries. The article recounts how my students read Elizabeth Inchbald’s 1798 drama, Lovers’ Vows, and Austen’s 1814 novel, Mansfield Park, and then were inspired at the end of the seminar to take part in a readers theatre production of the play. In order to set up this pedagogical example, the essay addresses the theatrical episode of Mansfield Park, the controversies surrounding Lovers’ Vows, and the ways in which I edited the play and prepared students to create a “little theatre”—to quote Austen character, Tom Bertram—at my university and become their own version of The Mansfield Players. The essay concludes by explaining what students can learn about drama and the novel by partaking in such an exercise.

  9. A Case Study in Caribbean Climate Change: Impacts on Crop Suitability and Small Farmer Vulnerability in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica

    2013-12-01

    This paper examines some of the implications of climate change for farming in the Caribbean, through an analysis of future crop suitability and a case study of climate variability and agricultural practices in St. Elizabeth Parish, Jamaica. To assess potential changes in Caribbean agriculture, we present results from a water budget model based on a 100-year regional climate projection of temperature and precipitation for the circum-Caribbean basin. We find that future water deficits in the region are climate type-dependent. Savanna climates experience the largest annual changes, while semi-arid environments are greatly impacted in the spring. When the impacts of temperature and precipitation are considered separately, we find that predicted future warming, and the associated increase in evapotranspiration, has a slightly larger climatological effect on crop water need than predicted decreases in precipitation. To illustrate how a changing climate regime may impact agricultural practices, we present results from recent fieldwork in St. Elizabeth Parish, one of the main farming regions on the island of Jamaica. Drawing on data from farmer interviews and a recently-installed weather mesonet, we highlight the ways in which local microclimates influence farmer livelihood strategies and community-level vulnerability. Initial results suggest that farmers are experiencing greater climate variability, and that communities with Savanna and semi-arid type climates may be more susceptible to drought than communities in wetter, higher-elevation microclimates. These changes have enhanced the importance of irrigation technology and water management strategies for successful farming. In this context, we argue, large, well-capitalized farmers may be better able to manage the uncertainties associated with climate change, leading to an uneven landscape of vulnerability across the region.

    Ella Dzelzainis

    2006-04-01

    Full Text Available My article examines the profoundly influential presence of eighteenth-century stadial or ‘four stages' theory in industrial fiction of the early Victorian period. Axiomatic within this Enlightenment theory was the assumption that the treatment of women was a reliable index to the civilized status of any society. The two women writers studied here, Harriet Martineau (1802-76 and Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna (1790-1846, took opposing sides in the debate over Malthusian political economy and interpreted stadial theory in correspondingly different ways. Martineau's enthusiastic Malthusianism in the 'Illustrations of Political Economy '(1832-4 foresaw a feminist future brought about by illimitable progress and the spread of reason. With the deliberate aim of countering Martineau's views, the pre-Millenarian Evangelical Tonna asserted the truth of revelation in 'The Wrongs of Woman' (1843-4 and positioned women's domestic subordination as integral to England's continued pre-eminence as a commercial nation. This essay examines the religious, social and political grounds on which these two adversaries staked their arguments, and does so through an analysis of their fictional accounts of the status, role, and treatment of working women in an industrializing society.

    Full Text Available Professor Elizabeth Adams St. Pierre’s work focuses on critical and poststructural theories of language and the subject and what she has called post qualitative inquiry or post inquiry. She asks what might come after conventional humanist qualitative research methodology. She’s especially interested in the new empiricisms/new materialisms as well as new research practices enabled by the ontological turn. During St. Pierre's visit to the Finnish Educational Research Association (FERA Conference in Oulu in November 2014, we had the opportunity to talk with her about post qualitative research around some questions we had sent her beforehand. We then transcribed, edited, and translated the interview, and published it in the Finnish journal Kasvatus (Education in spring 2015. In this interview St. Pierre talks in the US context, where qualitative methodology is turning—or being pushed to turn—back to positivism with normalized and formalized practices, St. Pierre encourages researchers to constantly question the prevailing truths and the traditions they have learnt too well.

    Full Text Available A survey to determine the prevalence of bovine tuberculosis caused by Mycobacterium bovis and certain other infectious diseases was conducted on 42 free-ranging African buffaloes, (Syncerus caffer from May to June 1997 in the Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda. Using the gamma interferon test, exposure to M. bovis was detected in 21.6 % of the buffaloes. One dead buffalo and an emaciated warthog (Phacochoerus aethiopicus that was euthanased, were necropsied; both had miliary granulomas from which M. bovis was isolated. None of the buffaloes sampled in Sector A of the park, which has no cattle interface, tested positive for bovine tuberculosis (BTB exposure. The prevalence and distribution of BTB does not appear to have changed significantly since the 1960s, but this may be due to fluxes in the buffalo population. Serological testing for foot-and-mouth disease (FMD demonstrated positive exposure of 57.1% of the buffaloes sampled, with types A, O and SAT 1-3, which is the first known report of FMD antibodies to A and O types in free ranging African buffaloes. Foot-and-mouth disease virus types SAT 1 and SAT 3 were isolated from buffalo probang samples. Two percent of the buffaloes had been exposed to brucellosis. None of the buffaloes tested had antibodies to rinderpest, leptospirosis or Q fever.

    Green, Laura

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper explores the portrayal of the Anglo-Irish in Elizabeth Bowen’s The Last September. Bowen writes from personal experience with a strong sense of irony to explore the relationships of this declining class and their relationship with their adopted homeland. As an inhabitant of an Anglo-Irish Big House, Bowen writes from the perspective of the Anglo–Irish but views their deteriorating existence with the clarity of one far more removed. Bowen’s life mirrors that of the protagonist Lois, struggling with issues of identity and escape from an antiquated society. The essay notes the effects this lack of identity has on the characters in the novel and the Anglo–Irish class as a whole at the time it is set. Issues of detachment from land and heritage, lack of communication and relationships between characters, and the ignorance of a middle and upper social class, the Anglo-Irish, to understand their deterioration during the years of the Irish War of Independence are also explored.

    Full Text Available As the anonymous author of “The Hard Church Novel” underlined in his article, “Theology and Literature – the study of God and the study of Man – need to go hand in hand, and are only just beginning to know it”. The links between literature and religion are in fact much older than we might imagine when reading this statement; however, it is a fact that the Victorian period was a time when many authors tried to reconcile secular writing and the Scriptures, to the extent that a new literary genre, the religious novel, was born. Although Elizabeth Gaskell’s works do not belong to this category, she set her heart on reconciling her vocation as a novelist with her beliefs as a Christian. Unlike her husband, she was not a Minister and therefore her own way of preaching the Word of God was to write fiction. She was convinced that the Pharisees had not disappeared with the Advent of Christ and, in her novels, she used her own, sometimes unorthodox, interpretation and rewriting of the Gospels to convert the Pharisees of her own time to the true essence of Christianity. Indeed, her Unitarian education granted her a greater freedom than most of her contemporaries in terms of biblical exegesis, as we can see in many of her works, but most particularly in Ruth, in which the eponymous heroine, a fallen woman, is not only described as a Magdalen but soon turns into a Madonna and then a Christ-like figure.

    Full Text Available Dans son dernier roman en date, The Night Travellers (1991, initialement intitulé “The Lost Children”, Elizabeth Spencer s’intéresse à une période durant laquelle nombre d’Américains s’interrogeaient sur l’avenir de leur pays. Elle analyse les effets de la guerre du Vietnam sur les vies de Mary Kerr et Jefferson Blaise, tous deux natifs du Sud des États-Unis. Chacun d’eux entre en conflit avec l’ordre établi : Mary ne s’entend pas avec sa mère et Jefferson Blaise s’oppose à la guerre, notamment en luttant contre l’incorporation des jeunes Américains dans l’armée, ce qui fait de lui une menace pour le gouvernement. Les deux jeunes gens quittent le Sud pour le Canada afin de vivre librement leur amour et de permettre à Jefferson Blaise de poursuivre son combat idéologique. Leur fuite leur fait comprendre qu’ils doivent trouver leur place dans un monde chaotique et livrer leur propre guerre de manière à trouver un équilibre. Dans ce roman, Spencer utilise des données historiques et met en lumière des aspects de la guerre qui sont rarement transposés de manière fictionnelle, comme les efforts du gouvernement pour faire taire les voix qui s’élèvent contre sa politique étrangère. Le but de cet article est de montrer combien les conflits personnels des personnages reflètent le contexte historique. La vie souterraine que décrit Spencer permet, en effet, de réfléchir sur l’importance des voix de l’ombre pour faire évoluer les choses.

    Full Text Available «The Orthodox Doctrine of Salvation», a well-known work by Archimandrite Sergius (Stragorodsky that was defended by him as a master’s thesis at the Moscow Theological Academy in 1895, is still considered an etalon in Orthodox theology. Meanwhile, in the first half of the 20th century, it was heavily criticized by at least two prominent members of the Church hierarchy of that time: Confessor of the Faith Victor (Ostrovidov and Archbishop Seraphim (Sobolev. This article does not only examine their arguments, but also provides the researcher’s personal understanding of the main theses of the work by Archimandrite Sergius. The researcher’s work in this case is complicated by a large number of patristic texts, which are given by Archimandrite Sergius and the abundance of which hampers the identification of his own original ideas. Nevertheless, the carried out analysis reveals that the dissertation doesn’t contain not only patristic, but any kind of a clear doctrine of the Fall, or of man’s state after the Fall, or of redemption, or of man’s assimilation of redemption fruits. Besides, the theses illustrated in the dissertation by the texts of the Holy Fathers belong not so much to them as to the first Slavophiles, Archimandrite Anthony (Khrapovitsky, the teacher and the senior friend of Archimandrite Sergius, and finally to Immanuel Kant. Consequently, in his doctrine of freedom anticipating grace, Archimandrite Sergius comes dangerously close to Pelagianism. These findings recognize the truth of complaints against the work of Archimandrite Sergius by Confessor of the Faith Viktor (Ostrovidov and Archbishop Seraphim (Sobolev.

    The aims of this study were to provide an overview of maxillofacial trauma and its relationship to patient's demographic data and alcohol consumption within the state of Sabah. It was a retrospective study of maxillofacial trauma cases treated by Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, from January 1, 2009, until December 31, 2013. A total of 630 maxillofacial trauma cases were included. Details of the trauma were collected from patients' record, including patients' cause of injuries, injuries suffered, treatment indications, and treatment received. Patients' demographic data (age, gender), alcohol consumption in relation to causes, and type of maxillofacial injury were analyzed. There were 538 male (85.4%) and 92 female (14.6%) patients (ratio: 5.8:1), with mean age of 31.0 years. Most common causes of maxillofacial injury were motor vehicle accident (MVA; 66.3%), followed by fall (12.4%) and assault (11.6%). Motorcyclists made up more than half of the total cases (53.1%). Cases referred were primarily due to soft-tissue injury (458 cases). Other cases were dentoalveolar and maxillofacial bone fractures. Treatment provided for the fractures included open reduction and internal fixation (22.9%), closed reduction (28.7%), and conservative management (48.4%). Toilet and suturing were done for all patients with soft-tissue injury. Maxillofacial trauma is a major problem in Sabah. It affects mostly males in the age group of 21 to 30 years. Most of the MVA patients were motorcyclists. Mandibular fracture with parasymphysis involvement recorded the highest number. Most of the patients preferred conservative management, probably due to financial and logistic issue.

    This article examines two American books for children: Nathaniel Hawthorne’s A Wonder Book for Girls and Boys (1851) and Elizabeth Stoddard’s Lolly Dinks’s Doings (1874). In both books, fairy tales or myths are framed by a contemporary American setting in which the stories is told. It is in these realistic frames with an adult storyteller and child listeners that metafictional features are found. The article shows that Hawthorne and Stoddard use a variety of metafictional elements. So, althou...

    This work analyzes travel writing by Mary Wollstonecraft and Elizabeth Gilbert to demonstrate that travel by women serves as a technology of the self or a means by which to attain a certain state of being. This examination of travel narratives from two different eras also reflects a shift in the nature of travel from a knowledge-expanding endeavour to a self-indulgent one prioritizing individual benefits. This emergent emphasis on travel as a means to self-improvement rather than self-under...

    The Concealed Fancies is a play written by Lady Jane Cavendish and Lady Elizabeth Brackley, the two eldest daughters of William Cavendish, marquis (and later duke) of Newcastle, during the English Civil War. We can feel reasonably certain that the sisters wrote it in the hope that it could be performed; however, that would have required the presence of their father, whose return is the climax of the story, from the Continental exile to which he had fled after his comprehensive defeat at the B...

  8. Difference and proliferation: race in the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop = Diferença e proliferação: o conceito de raça na poesia de Elizabeth Bishop

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Terry Caesar

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available The current paper deals with the whole imagination of race in the work of a major American poet. The very subject of race intersects with the question of national identity, also neglected in Bishop’s work, although not in the same way. The aim of the discussion is to align the racial text with the national text. How can we understand Bishop’s consistent interest in race throughout her poetry, and what effect can be observed in it as a result of her exposure to racial constructs in Brazil that are so different from those of her native United States? We can see this effect manifest even in the controversy over her 1965 magazine article on the quatercentenary of Rio de Janeiro. What does this controversy demonstrate, finally, but that national experience with respect to race turns out to be mutually exclusive? One cannot be in this respect both Brazilian and American—in prose. In poetry, however, it is quite another matter. The subject of race is all of a piece, and has been all along conducted in Bishop’s work according to a logic ultimately apart fromnational construction. Analisa-se a imaginação de raça na obra de Elizabeth Bishop, uma poetisa importante da literatura estadunidense. O assunto ‘raça’ cruza com o problema da identidade nacional, também negligenciado na obra de Bishop, embora de modo diferente. A presente discussão alinha o texto racial ao texto nacional. Como pode-se compreender o seu interesse constante sobre ‘raça’ e quais são os efeitos em sua poesia como resultado de sua exposição às construções raciais no Brasil, as quais são tão diferentes daquelas nos Estados Unidos? Este efeito manifesta-se também em seu artigo numa revista de 1965 referente ao quatrocentenário do Rio de Janeiro. Esta controvérsia parece mostrar que a experiência nacional sobre ‘raça’ é mutuamente exclusiva. Na prosa não se pode ser brasileiro ou estadunidense ao mesmo tempo. Na poesia, parece que os parâmetros s

    The increased frequency of interracial marriage is a likely source of unusual-looking dizygotic (DZ) twins. Some members of DZ twin pairs born to mixed-race couples inherit very different physical features from their parents. This raises several questions, such as: Will researchers wish to include such twins in their ongoing studies? Next, new twin research concerned with congenital anomalies, mirror-image effects in conjoined twins and older mothers of twins will be reviewed. New statistics on twinning rates in Massachusetts will also be summarized, followed by a tribute to the late medical geneticist Dr. Victor A. McKusick.

  13. Plans of Implementation and Methods for Increasing Student Enrollment in the Earth Systems Science Course at Elizabeth City State University

    Porter, W.

    2001-12-01

    This presentation reviews the experience of Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) in offering the Earth Systems Science (ESS) online course sponsored the Earth System Science Education Alliance (ESSEA) and how it relates to our plans to offer the course in the Spring Semester of 2002. The course was offered for the first time at ECSU during the Fall semester 2000. Eight students were enrolled in the course, which may not be considered a large number; however, we felt the administration of the course was successful because of the staff's learning experience. The small number is also a reflection of the nature of ECSU's primary recruitment region of northeastern North Carolina; this area is extremely rural with a smaller population, lower economic development, and fewer cultural amenities than most regions of the state. Our approach to this project is for a long-term effective offering of a course that is much needed, especially in this area of the state. The ultimate goal is to develop ESS as our online offering of courses in the Geoscience Department curriculum as to recruit students who might not have the opportunity to take college-level courses because of daytime work commitments and/or inaccessibility to a local college or university. A major component of ESS is its focus on problem-based learning built upon the life experiences of participating students. Having learned from the previous offering of the course, the following are objectives related to the Spring Semester 2002: 1. To get ESS to become a part of the Geoscience curriculum so that it will be listed on the schedule of classes for the Spring Semester 2002 and each succeeding semester; 2. To aggressively reach out to the public school teachers, especially in the recruitment region of ECSU in northeastern North Carolina, by using effective recruitment strategies; 3. To have an active and continuous communication with prospective students prior to and immediately after the enrollment, as well as being

  14. Suffrage Movement and the Subversion of the ‘Juridico-Discursive’ Power in the Victorian Period: Elizabeth Robins and The Concept of 'New Women'

    Esmaeil Najar

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper examines the socio-historical subversion of ‘juridico-discursive’ power in the late Victorian period. It briefly investigates the rise of the British suffrage movement and highlights the role of ‘suffrage drama’ as its social apparatus. The authors demonstrate how suffrage artists, especially the playwright/actress Elizabeth Robins, acted against the dominant patriarchal hegemony and were in frontline of social uprisings. It is argued that ‘Suffrage drama’ as a ‘place of tolerance’ functioned as an antithesis to the mainstream theatre and challenged the conventional dramatic forms practiced prior to its birth. Suffrage drama provided a space for women to have their collective voice heard in a social and political context in the early Victorian era. Elizabeth Robins, mostly acknowledged for enacting women heroines of Ibsen’s plays, became an invaluable inspirational figure for suffrage women as she was the actress in whom the strong concept of the ‘New Woman’ was incarnated.

    Full Text Available The Peary caribou (Rangifer tarandus pearyi was recognized as 'Threatened' by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada in 1979 and 'Endangered' in 1991. It is the only member of the deer family (Cervidae found on the Queen Elizabeth Islands (QEI of the Canadian High Arctic. The Peary caribou is a significant part of the region's biodiversity and a socially important and economically valuable part of Arctic Canada's natural heritage. Recent microsatellite DNA findings indicate that Peary caribou on the QEI are distinct from caribou on the other Arctic Islands beyond the QEI, including Banks Island. This fact must be kept in mind if any translocation of caribou to the QEI is proposed. The subspecies is too gross a level at which to recognize the considerable diversity that exists between Peary caribou on the QEI and divergent caribou on other Canadian Arctic Islands. The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada should take this considerable diversity among these caribou at below the subspecies classification to mind when assigning conservation divisions (units to caribou on the Canadian Arctic Islands. In summer 1961, the first and only nearly range-wide aerial survey of Peary caribou yielded a population estimate on the QEI of 25 845, including about 20% calves. There was a strong preference for range on the western QEI (WEQI, where 94% (24 363 of the estimated caribou occurred on only 24% (ca. 97 000 km2 of the collective island-landmass. By summer 1973, the overall number of Peary caribou on the QEI had decreased markedly and was estimated at about 7000 animals. The following winter and spring (1973-74, the Peary caribou population declined 49% on the WQEI. The estimated number dropping to <3000, with no calves seen by us in summer 1974. Based on estimates from several aerial surveys conducted on the WQEI from 1985 to 1987, the number of Peary caribou on the QEI as a whole was judged to be 3300-3600 or only

    2007-06-01

    Full Text Available Objective To compare the performance of the Queen Elizabeth II Document Deliveryoperation before and after the implementation of Relais International’s Enterprise documentdelivery software.Methods This paper employs methodology established in the Association of Research Libraries’ 1998 publication, “Measuring the Performance of Interlibrary Loan Operations” and repeated in ARL’s “Assessing ILL/DD Services: New Cost‐ Effective Alternatives, ”published in 2004. In both studies, three measures were used to evaluate the efficiency of document delivery operations: fill rate, turnaround time and direct costs. Both studies offer ARL benchmark or mean scores for each efficiency measure. This paper compares Queen Elizabeth II Document Delivery (QEII/DD scores for each efficiency measure with those reported in both ARL studies.Results ‐ Data for the two periods under review, 1999‐2000 and 2004‐2005, indicate that borrowing fill rates remained relatively stable, showing only a 3% drop in the latter year, while lending fill rates showed a significant increase (11%. Turnaround times for filled QEII/DD borrowing returnable requests were faster on average by 4.2 days or 24%. Turnaround times for QEII/DD non‐returnable borrowing requests also show improvement: a filled non‐returnable request was faster on average by 1 day or 12%. The average cost of a QEII/DD borrowing request has remained stable: $22.82 in 1999‐2000 and $22.61 in 2004‐2005. In contrast, the average cost of a QEII/DD lending request has increased slightly: from $11.08 in 1999‐2000 to $13.12 in 2004‐2005. Conclusion ‐ Both the implementation of Relais document delivery software and the delivery of returnables (loans by courier between consortium members have allowed the QEII/DD unit to post modest gains in both fill rates and per unit costs and more substantive gains in turnaround time.

    To review the presentation and management of child sexual abuse cases presenting to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH), Blantyre, since the introduction of an HIV postexposure prophylaxis programme. Demographic and medical data was collected from all children presenting to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Blantyre, Malawi between January 2005 and February 2007 with alleged child sexual abuse (CSA). Between January 2005 and February 2007, 217 children presented with alleged CSA. This an average of 3 more per month since the previous year, a 57 percent increase. Physical examination showed signs of trauma 60% (130/217) of cases. 63% (137/217) of the cases presented within 72 hours of defilement. Overall in 42% (92/217) of children a one month course of HIV PEP was indicated and given. In 58% (125/217) HIV PEP was not indicated in view of normal examination, presentation too late (>72 hrs after abuse), multiple abuse episodes in the last 6 months, HIV test positive or HIV test refused. In 66% (144/217) of assessed children antibiotic treatment was given for the prevention and/ or treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The introduction of an HIV PEP programme for victims of CSA has lead to increased numbers presenting and being treated. In conclusion it is likely that a significant number of children have been prevented from acquiring HIV and other STIs following CSA. The key area where our service needs to be improved is in establishing documented follow up of all cases to monitor medication compliance, side effects and rates of HIV seroconversion following CSA.

    Full Text Available Mesmo quando estimulada pela aplicação exógena de reguladores de crescimento, a capacidade de enraizamento da oliveira, por estacaria semi-lenhosa, encontra-se muito dependente do genótipo utilizado. É assim possível encontrar cultivares como a ‘Cobrançosa’, onde se atingem sem dificuldade taxas de formação de raízes adventícias próximas dos 70%, e cultivares como a “Galega vulgar”, onde só muito esporadicamente se conseguem ultrapassar os 10% de estacas enraizadas. Este trabalho apresenta os resultados preliminares de um estudo de histologia comparativa entre as cultivares de Olea europaea referidas. Procuraram-se diferenças tanto na anatomia do caule como na ontogénese das raízes adventícias, que pudessem ajudar a compreender a diferença de comportamento de duas cultivares relativamente ao enraizamento por estacaria semi-lenhosa. Das observações que até agora foi possível efectuar, constatou-se que a anatomia do caule na zona de formação das novas raízes adventícias não difere significativamente, apresentando no entanto qualquer uma das cultivares em estudo um anel de esclerênquima, mais ou menos continuo, que poderá actuar como uma barreira mecânica ao normal desenvolvimento das raízes. Relativamente às regiões ontogenicamente activas, as observações efectuadas permitiram constatar que na “Cobrançosa” as novas raízes têm origem nos tecidos situados na proximidade do câmbio vascular, enquanto que na ‘Galega vulgar’, são as células parenquimatosas do recém formado calo de cicatrização que estão na origem dos campos morfogénicos da raiz. Esta aparente diferença entre os tecidos envolvidos no processo de desdiferenciação e reaquisição do estado meristemático primário, condição essencial para a formação dos novos meristemas radicais, é mais um contributo que, esperamos, possa ajudar a compreender as grandes diferenças observadas na capacidade de enraizamento destas

    Socioeconomically deprived children are at increased risk of ill-health associated with sedentary behavior, malnutrition, and helminth infection. The resulting reduced physical fitness, growth retardation, and impaired cognitive abilities may impede children's capacity to pay attention. The present study examines how socioeconomic status (SES), parasitic worm infections, stunting, food insecurity, and physical fitness are associated with selective attention and academic achievement in school-aged children. The study cohort included 835 children, aged 8-12 years, from eight primary schools in socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhoods of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The d2-test was utilized to assess selective attention. This is a paper and pencil letter-cancellation test consisting of randomly mixed letters d and p with one to four single and/or double quotation marks either over and/or under each letter. Children were invited to mark only the letters d that have double quotation marks. Cardiorespiratory fitness was assessed via the 20 m shuttle run test and muscle strength using the grip strength test. The Kato-Katz thick smear technique was employed to detect helminth eggs in stool samples. SES and food insecurity were determined with a pre-tested questionnaire, while end of year school results were used as an indicator of academic achievement. Children infected with soil-transmitted helminths had lower selective attention, lower school grades (academic achievement scores), and lower grip strength (all pperformance (pacademic achievement was observed in children without soil-transmitted helminth infection (pperformance (pacademic performance.

  8. The Sky is Falling: An air deposition/stormwater runoff model simulating the pathways of five heavy metals from their status as mobile and stack exhaust constituents to their delivery to the Elizabeth River

    Recent studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicate that air emissions contribute a major portion of the total loading of toxic metals to the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. According to the Chesapeake Executive Council of the interstate Chesapeake Bay Program, five of these metals, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, and zinc, have been observed to have a negative impact on the waters of the Elizabeth River, which is within the Chesapeake Bay watershed. In order to better define the sources and processes which contribute to concentrations of these metals in the Elizabeth River, this analysis simulates the pathway of these metals from their status as mobile and stack exhaust constituents to their delivery to the river. EPA`s ISCST3 model was used to predict deposition loading on the Elizabeth River water and watershed surfaces, using regional annual meteorological data. Air emissions input to the ISCST3 model were derived from stationary and mobile sources: stationary source emissions were estimated using Virginia Department of Environmental Quality inventories and EPA-approved emissions factors for major sources with the potential to impact the watershed, while mobile source emissions were estimated using traffic volumes provided by the Department of Transportation and EPA-approved emissions factors. EPA`s SWMM model was then used to predict maximum short term and average annual build up and wash off rates for these metals using recorded rainfall data and existing land use and impervious cover for the watershed. The results are compared to water quality monitoring data from the municipal NPDES stormwater wet weather monitoring permit program.

  9. Transatlantic Abolitionist Discourse and the Body of Christ in Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s “The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim’s Point”

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Despite renewed interest in roles played by Christianity in the poetry of Elizabeth Barrett Browning (EBB, few scholars have discussed her treatment of the body of Christ—understood as both the figure of Christ and his body of followers—in her antislavery poem, “The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim’s Point”. This article argues that “The Runaway Slave” reworks portrayals of the body of Christ in transatlantic abolitionist print culture. It examines the poem in its original context of publication in the 1848 issue of The Liberty Bell, the Boston-based antislavery annual. As EBB would have known from earlier issues of the annual that she received before writing her poem, its contributors—primarily though not exclusively privileged northern whites—represented themselves as messianic martyrs whose Christ-like suffering would liberate slaves. EBB’s poem challenges this self-glorifying rhetoric, in part by making a refrain out of words from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s well-known poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. This refrain indicates that the symbols used by Liberty Bell authors to portray themselves as messianic martyrs might, to those they labor to liberate, seem perversely bound up in slavery and the color binary used to justify it. “Runaway Slave” further suggests that the Liberty Bell’s messianic rhetoric, like the slave system itself, parodies Christ’s sacrifice of himself for the good of others. In both cases, wittingly or not, whites seek to turn the bodily agony of blacks to their benefit, whether ethical or economic. Stressing that such parodies of the crucifixion only perpetuate racial violence, the poem pursues what we might call a post-secular vision of Christ’s body, suggesting that people can through love act as members of Christ outside of any official church body. EBB’s poem nevertheless risks trading in the abuses it critiques—a risk, the material history of her poem indicates, of which she might have

    Federal efforts to promote the participation of underrepresented students in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines (STEM) in higher education have been in effect over several decades. The Science and Engineering Equal Opportunities Act of 1980 aimed to create equal opportunity in the STEM disciplines by promoting and broadening the participation of underrepresented talent in science and engineering. Since that time, federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation, NOAA and NASA, scientific organizations such as the American Geophysical Union, and other organizations such as the Educational Testing Service have created programs, diversity plans and cutting edge reports designed to further explicate the need to broaden the participation of underrepresented student talent in these disciplines. Despite increases in the degrees awarded to underrepresented students in the STEM disciplines, enhancing diversity in these disciplines continues to remain a significant challenge. This paper describes a strategic approach to this challenge via the development of a collaborative partnership model between two universities: the historically black Elizabeth City State University (ESCU) and the historically white University of New Hampshire (UNH). The alliance, built on a mutually-agreed upon set of partnership principles, strives to enhance opportunities for underrepresented students to pursue careers in STEM disciplines, specifically those in Earth system science and remote sensing. In examining the partnership, six promising practices that help advance its success come to the forefront. These practices include institutional commitment and faculty engagement, mutual respect and shared time commitment, identifying engaged leadership, engaging critical change agents, initiating difficult dialogues, and preparing for growth and evolution. Outcomes of the partnership to date include the successful submission and funding of four collaborative

    Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is endemic in Uganda in spite of the control measures used. Various aspects of the maintenance and circulation of FMD viruses (FMDV) in Uganda are not well understood; these include the role of the African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) as a reservoir for FMDV. To better understand the epidemiology of FMD at the livestock-wildlife-interface, samples were collected from young, unvaccinated cattle from 24 pastoral herds that closely interact with wildlife around Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda, and analysed for evidence of FMDV infection. In total, 37 (15%) of 247 serum samples had detectable antibodies against FMDV non-structural proteins (NSPs) using a pan-serotypic assay. Within these 37 sera, antibody titres ≥ 80 against the structural proteins of serotypes O, SAT 1, SAT 2 and SAT 3 were detected by ELISA in 5, 7, 4 and 3 samples, respectively, while neutralizing antibodies were only detected against serotype O in 3 samples. Two FMDV isolates, with identical VP1 coding sequences, were obtained from probang samples from clinically healthy calves from the same herd and are serotype SAT 1 (topotype IV (EA-I)). Based on the VP1 coding sequences, these viruses are distinct from previous cattle and buffalo SAT 1 FMDV isolates obtained from the same area (19-30% nucleotide difference) and from the vaccine strain (TAN/155/71) used within Uganda (26% nucleotide difference). Eight herds had only one or a few animals with antibodies against FMDV NSPs while six herds had more substantial evidence of prior infection with FMDV. There was no evidence for exposure to FMDV in the other ten herds. The two identical SAT 1 FMDV VP1 sequences are distinct from former buffalo and cattle isolates from the same area, thus, transmission between buffalo and cattle was not demonstrated. These new SAT 1 FMDV isolates differed significantly from the vaccine strain used to control Ugandan FMD outbreaks, indicating a need for vaccine matching studies. Only

    A finales del año pasado falleció en los Estados Unidos el médico colombiano Víctor Ferrans, quien dedicó su vida entera a la investigación en biología molecular.

    “Vic” (como le decían sus contemporáneos norteamericanos nació en Barranquilla en la década de los 30. Con raíces catalanas, se graduó de bachiller en el tradicional Colegio Biffi de los Hermanos Cristianos; viajó a New Orleans, donde se graduó de médico en la Universidad de Tulane e hizo su internado en el Charity Hospital de la misma ciudad.

    En vez de proseguir con una tradicional residencia en campos clínicoquirúrgicos que le hubieran garantizado una vida sin aulagas, decidió sacar un doctorado en anatomía, en su misma Alma Mater.

    Los colombianos éramos particularmente apreciados en aquel sitio, merced a programas como el “Tulane-Colombia” (ahora Cideim en Cali, orientado hacia el estudio de las enfermedades tropicales, y a la presencia de decenas de profesionales becados para hacer postgrados allí (que en nuestro país adquirirían luego el remoquete de los “Tulane boys”.

Yo lo hice entre 1965 y 1967, cuando compartí trabajo y amistad con mi paisano Ferrans.

    Casado con la también barranquillera Gloria Grocer, Víctor se ubicó en el grupo del Profesor George E. Burch, jefe de Medicina Interna y eminente cardiólogo e investigador.

    Sus primeros “papers” llevaron la co-autoría de Burch, entre los que recuerdo uno sobre la necesidad de tratar las cardiomiopatìas dilatadas que se observaban en situaciones como los embarazos, con reposo estricto y prolongado, hasta por seis meses. Como Burch exigía que todo médico vinculado al Departamento hiciera consulta externa y pasara revista (o “rounds”, así se dedicara a la investigación, allí los residentes y fellows veíamos a grandes científicos participando en jornadas de un corte eminentemente clínico, lo que a su vez enriquecía nuestro aprendizaje...

  8. The potential use of storm water and effluent from a constructed wetland for re-vegetating a degraded pyrite trail in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda

    Osaliya, R.; Kansiime, F.; Oryem-Origa, H.; Kateyo, E.

    During the operation of the Kilembe Mines (copper mining) a cobaltiferous stockpile was constructed, which began to erode after the closure of the mines in the early 1970s. The erosion of the pyrite stockpile resulted in a large acid trail all the way to Lake George (a Ramsar site). The acid trail contaminated a large area of Queen Elizabeth National Park (QENP) resulting in the death of most of the shallow-rooted vegetation. Processes and conditions created by storm water and effluent from a constructed wetland were assessed for vegetation regeneration in the degraded QENP pyrite trail. Cynodon dactylon, Imperata cylindrica and Hyparrhenia filipendula dominated the regeneration zone (RZ) where storm water and effluent from a constructed wetland was flowing; and the adjacent unpolluted area (UP) with importance value indices of 186.4 and 83.3 respectively. Typha latifolia and C. dactylon formed two distinct vegetation sub-zones within the RZ with the former inhabiting areas with a higher water table. Soil pH was significantly higher in the RZ, followed by UP and bare pyrite trail (BPT) at both 0-15 cm and 16-30 cm depths. Soil electrical conductivity was not significantly different in the RZ and BPT but significantly higher than that in UP for both depths. For 0-15 cm depth, RZ had significantly higher concentrations of copper than BPT and UP which had similar concentrations. Still at this depth (0-15 cm), the unpolluted area had significantly higher concentrations of total phosphorus and total nitrogen than the regeneration zone and the bare pyrite trail which had similar concentrations. The RZ dominated by Typha had significantly higher concentrations of TP and TN compared to the RZ dominated by Cynodon. The concentrations of NH 4-N were significantly lower in Typha regeneration zone than in CRZ at 0-15 cm depth but similar at 16-30 cm depth. At 16-30 cm depth, concentrations of copper were significantly higher in the regeneration zone followed by the bare pyrite

  9. Characterization of the recalcitrant CYP1 phenotype found in Atlantic killifish (Fundulus heteroclitus) inhabiting a Superfund site on the Elizabeth River, VA.

    Fundulus heteroclitus (Atlantic killifish) found at the Atlantic Wood Industries Superfund site on the Elizabeth River (ER) in Portsmouth, VA (USA), have been shown to be resistant to the teratogenic effects of creosote-contaminated sediments found at this highly contaminated site. Many of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) found at the ER are known to activate the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR), and are thought to mediate their toxic effects through this pathway. Activation of the AHR results in the induction of several Phase I and II metabolic enzymes. It has been previously shown that the AHR of killifish from the ER are refractory to induction by AHR agonists. To more fully characterize this altered AHR response, we exposed embryos from the ER and from a reference site on King's Creek, VA (KC) to two PAHs, benzo[alpha]pyrene (BaP) and benzo[k]fluoranthene (BkF), and to the dioxin-like compound (DLC), 3,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl (PCB126). We compared their developmental and molecular responses by screening the embryos for CYP1A enzyme activity, cardiac deformities, and mRNA expression of CYP1A, CYP1B1, CYP1C1, and AHR2. Basal gene expression of both CYP1A and CYP1B1 was 40% higher in the KC control embryos compared to those from the ER, while AHR2 and CYP1C1 were not significantly different between the populations. Exposure of KC embryos to BaP, BkF, and PCB126 induced CYP1A activity and cardiac deformities. In contrast, CYP1A activity was induced in ER embryos only in response to BkF exposure, although this induction in ER embryos was significantly lower than that observed in KC fish at comparable concentrations. ER embryos did not develop cardiac deformities in response to any of the chemicals tested. CYP1A, CYP1B1 and CYP1C1 mRNA were all significantly induced in the KC embryos after exposure to BaP, BkF and PCB126. Exposure to BaP and BkF in ER embryos resulted in a significant induction of CYP1A mRNA, albeit significantly lower than observed

Between cultivars, it was observed that ‘Cobrançosa’ presented higher enzymatic activity than ‘Galega vulgar’. The pH at 5.5 and 40 ºC temperature, using 20 mM of 4methylcatecol in acetate buffer were the optimized conditions for the enzymatic analysis. Under these conditions, the measured KM was 2,60 and 3,48 m

    Full Text Available A estaquia é um método de propagação muito utilizado para a oliveira. Sua viabilidade depende da capacidade de formação de raízes adventícias de cada espécie. Contudo é necessário estudar as diferentes características desse processo. Objetivou-se, no presente trabalho avaliar o efeito de concentrações de AIB, do veículo de diluição, do substrato e época de coleta, no enraizamento de estacas semilenhosas de oliveira 'Ascolano 315'. Foram coletados ramos medianos de plantas matrizes localizadas na unidade da Epamig, em Maria da Fé-MG, e preparadas as estacas com, aproximadamente, 12 cm de comprimento, com 4 a 6 internódios, mantendo na região apical quatro folhas. O delineamento utilizado foi o inteiramente casualizado, em esquema fatorial 4 x 2 x 2 x 5, com quatro repetições e quinze estacas por parcela. O experimento foi conduzido em câmara úmida, com fornecimento de calor no fundo das bandejas de enraizamento. Após a instalação do experimento, foi realizado um tratamento com solução de oxicloreto de cobre a 3 %, para prevenir eventuais ataques de fungos e, a cada sete dias, a câmara foi aberta por alguns minutos para renovação do ar e irrigação, para manutenção da umidade. As avaliações foram realizadas 65 dias após a estaquia de cada época de coleta. As estacas coletadas em abril e tratadas com 3000 mg.L-1 apresentaram maior porcentagem de enraizamento e número médio de raízes. O substrato perlita + vermiculita (1:1 v/v incrementou o comprimento médio das raízes. A diluição do AIB em NaHO ou álcool + água não diferiu.The rooted stem cutting is a method highly used for the propagation of olive tree.

    Full Text Available As águas subterrâneas são aquelas que se infiltram através da superfície do terreno e enchem os espaços vazios dos interstícios das rochas. A irrigação é uma prática agrícola que visa principalmente atender as necessidades hídricas das culturas no momento adequado.  A água utilizada na irrigação das hortaliças é derivada de poços tubulares e do rio Piranhas. O trabalho teve como objetivo avaliar os parâmetros físicos da água dos poços das comunidades Bezerro e Várzea Comprida dos Oliveiras. A pesquisa foi desenvolvida no município de Pombal-PB, por meio de visitas feitas nas comunidades, as quais trabalham com a produção de hortaliças irrigada com água subterrânea. Foram coletadas 18 amostras de água nas comunidades citadas e realizadas as seguintes análises físicas: Turbidez, temperatura e cor. Os poços apresentaram redução nos valores de Turbidez a partir de fevereiro, pois as chuvas conseguiram diluir os materiais presentes na água dos poços. Os valores obtidos para cor estão dentro do padrão exigido para irrigação. A temperatura apresentou pouca oscilação nos valores no decorrer do trabalho.

    Full Text Available Paleopathological examinations of the skeletal remains of people who died centuries ago are material source of knowledge about health and diseases in the past. In this article, a case of skeletal tuberculosis from historical (13th-15th c. Wrocław, Poland has been presented. The juvenile skeleton excavated from grave No 93, from the crypt located under the church of St. Elizabeth, displayed pathological lesions within the right hip joint resulting from a chronic inflammation, which might have been assigned to signs typical for skeletal tuberculosis. The results of macroscopic and radiological analyses appeared to be consistent, and allowed to determine a reliable diagnosis of this paleopathological case.

It aims in particular at examining the way in which the war –both on the frontline and at the rearguard– affected many individuals who eventually became the strongest supporters of a culture based on military victory. With a view to that, and departing from a local perspective, it explores the different ways (rewards system, engagement in the regime institutions, collaboration in enemy repression, and establishment of an everlasting victors’ memory in which both dictatorship and social exclusion of the vanquished were firmly laid down. | El presente artículo examina el papel de la experiencia de guerra en la conformación de la dictadura franquista a través del análisis de las actitudes y comportamientos de los vencedores y apoyos sociales del régimen durante la propia Guerra Civil y la posguerra.

Para ello, partiendo desde una perspectiva centrada en el plano local, se exploran las diferentes vías (sistema de recompensas, participación en las instituciones del régimen, colaboración en la persecución del enemigo o perpetuación de la memoria de los vencedores a través de las cuales contribuyeron a la consolidación de la dictadura, al tiempo que propiciaron la exclusión social de los perdedores de la guerra.

    the settler's territoriality process and how this territoriality is expressed in a settlement like the Tiracanga Logradouro, which is fragmented in Ceará's semiarid. The materialization of this study was based on on-fi eld studies and the dialogues with peasant settlers, seeking to record the widest variety of aspects related to the peasant's origins, their fight for land, their organizational situation and land use. For this purpose, participation in meetings with associations and groups of peasants was programmed and interviews with some of them in their residences, as well as with some peasant leaders were organized. Throughout the text, we search to overcome the division between formal and informal knowledge with regards to the speech of researched individuals. Bibliographic research on the subject was elaborated through books, theses, dissertations and the collection of data at the INCRA. The study revealed the organizational and settlement use strategies practiced by the peasants, including discussions on the use of their land parcel, in which agreements and disagreements amongst settlers appeared with regards to the adoption of this land exploitation model. It was concluded that families articulate the use of their land parcel based on familiar unit and the family nucleus and regain collective use as a strategy for family unit reproduction.

    ‘My God, how does one write a Biography? Tell me.

    Abstract Background Dendritic cells (DCs) connect innate and adaptive immunity, and are necessary for an efficient CD4+ and CD8+ T cell response after infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). We previously described the macrophage cell death response to Mtb infection. To investigate the effect of Mtb infection on human DC viability, we infected these phagocytes with different strains of Mtb and assessed viability, as well as DNA fragmentation and caspase activity. In parallel studies, we assessed the impact of infection on DC maturation, cytokine production and bacillary survival. Results Infection of DCs with live Mtb (H37Ra or H37Rv) led to cell death. This cell death proceeded in a caspase-independent manner, and without nuclear fragmentation. In fact, substrate assays demonstrated that Mtb H37Ra-induced cell death progressed without the activation of the executioner caspases, 3\\/7. Although the death pathway was triggered after infection, the DCs successfully underwent maturation and produced a host-protective cytokine profile. Finally, dying infected DCs were permissive for Mtb H37Ra growth. Conclusions Human DCs undergo cell death after infection with live Mtb, in a manner that does not involve executioner caspases, and results in no mycobactericidal effect. Nonetheless, the DC maturation and cytokine profile observed suggests that the infected cells can still contribute to TB immunity.

  18. Creating a functional soil using kimberlite tailings from the De Beers Canada Victor Diamond Mine

    Bergeron, K.; Campbell, D. [Laurentian Univ., Sudbury, ON (Canada). Dept. of Biology

    2010-10-01

    This article discussed the creation of a functional soil from kimberlite tailings and other mining deposits created from an open pit mine in the Hudson Bay Lowland of Ontario. Stockpiles of peat, silty overburden, limestone rock, and processed kimberlite tailings have to be reclaimed at mine closure and could be mixed into a suitably fertile soil. The study first evaluated the chemical and physical characterization of each material, and then a range of mixes were created for further chemical and physical tests and plant growth experiments. The physical characterization identified particle-size distribution and water-holding capacity, and the chemical analyses looked at pH, total and bioavailable nutrients, and cation exchange capacity (CEC). The major challenges presented by the processed kimberlite tailings are high pH, low nutrients, low CEC, and a calcium (Ca) to magnesium (Mg) ratio of less than 1. Peat will be required in mixtures to lower the pH and improve soil fertility. Limestone or overburden material in the mixture will ameliorate the problematic Ca to Mg ratio. The addition of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous, may needed to bring the fertility levels of the soil closer to that found in upland soil. The research is also intended to be applicable to the closure of other mines being developed in the area. 3 refs., 6 figs.

If the franklian work is known worldwide for being a theory and a practice within neurotic disorders, we must not forget how logotherapy has been put at the disposal of the sufferer in its broadest sense. Especially in the context of care and care of the chronically and evolutionary ill (cancer, heart disease, degenerative diseases, etc.), the thought and practice logotherapy have made and continue to make a valuable contribution. In this review we will cover in more detail the application of logotherapy in clinical-care, pausing to examine the international literature.

    Full Text Available Cultural encounters between Spain and Morocco have been marked by hatred, friendship and hostile contempt throughout various historical junctures. The Muslim presence in modern Spain has shaped cultural representations between Self and Other, West and East, Europe and its Otherness. This historically imagined hostility and the everlasting tension created between East and West could be traced back as early as Medieval ages when Muslims conquered Southern Europe. This episode of history gave rise to frequently manipulated and constructed misrepresentations which served in the production of distorted and often disfigured discourses about the Muslim Other in the western popular imagination. This article looks at this historical event and attempts to shed light on the historical circumstances surrounding the Moorish presence in medieval Spain. It also tries to look at one of plays that enhance the existence of the cultural Other within a white territory of disapproval, annihilation and subordination of otherness.

    Full Text Available The production of broiler chickens, in despite of the growing market space, it still faces important challenges in production, at basic and industrial level at the same time. In this context, this article summarizes the main conclusions of the application of FMEA in a broiler farm, analyzing also the implications for their planning. This study used descriptive and a case study approach. The results showed that the most frequent problems were characterized, for example as sick chickens and chicken deaths - with the main sources of vaccine shortage and excess in the carrying capacity of the farm. It was observed that the method FMEA was appropriate and contributed for the analyzes, for instance, to the resolution of the structured problems, since, by implementing the method, we could better understand the possible errors and failures that, perhaps, probably can cause these problems, giving the manager security issues and enabling the execution of a plan. So, this research brings the expectative to improve the management of broiler farms and, indirectly, can aid the profitability of poultry farmers, for their awareness of the importance of use quality management tools.

  5. Mass budget of Queen Elizabeth Islands glaciers and ice caps, Canada, from 1992 to present

    2015-12-01

    Recent studies indicate to say that the Canadian Artic Archipelago's mass loss has increased in recent years. However the role of ice dynamics changes in this area is not well known. In this study, we present a comprehensive velocity mapping of the CAA using ALOS/PALSAR, RADARSAT-1, ERS1 and Landsat data between 1992 and 2015. Glaciers speed are calculated using a speckle and feature tracking algorithm.The results reveals that three large marine-terminating glaciers have accelerated significantly after 2010, while most others have slowed down or retreated to a sill to become similar to land-terminating glaciers. By combining the velocities of these glaciers with ice thickness measurements from NASA's Operation IceBridge, we calculate their ice discharge. The fluxes of these glaciers increased significantly since 2000 with a marked increase after 2011. The comparison of ice discharge with the surface mass balance from RACMO-2, shows that these glaciers came out of balance after 2011, which is also a time period where their discharge almost doubled. The analysis of RACMO-2 reveals an increase in runoff between 1970's and today and a precipitation with no significant trend. We digitalize the calving front positions of the glaciers and show an increasing rate retreat since 1976. We conclude that global pattern of velocity changes shows that the mass losses due to surface mass balance will likely going to raise in the coming years and that ice discharge will have a smaller part in the contribution of the CAA to sea level rise.

  9. Crystal Structure and Chemical Composition of a Presolar Silicate from the Queen Elizabeth Range 99177 Meteorite

    2013-01-01

    Mineral characterization of presolar silicate grains, the most abundant stardust phase, has provided valuable information about the formation conditions in circumstellar environments and in super-nova (SN) outflows. Spectroscopic observations of dust around evolved stars suggest a majority of amor-phous, Mg-rich olivine grains, but crystalline silicates, most of which are pyroxene, have also been observed [1]. The chemical compositions of hundreds of presolar silicates have been determined by Auger spectroscopy and reveal high Fe contents and nonstoichiometric compositions intermediate to olivine and pyroxene [2-6]. The unexpectedly high Fe contents can partly be attributed to secondary alteration on the meteorite parent bodies, as some grains have Fe isotopic anomalies from their parent stellar source [7]. Only about 35 presolar silicates have been studied for their mineral structures and chemical compositions by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). These grains display a wide range of compositions and structures, including crystalline forsterite, crystalline pyroxene, nanocrystalline grains, and a majority of amorphous nonstoichiometric grains. Most of these grains were identified in the primitive Acfer 094 meteorite. Presolar silicates from this meteorite show a wide range of Fe-contents, suggestive of secondary processing on the meteorite parent body. The CR chondrite QUE 99177 has not suffered as much alteration [8] and displays the highest presolar silicate abundance to date among carbonaceous chondrites [3, 6]. However, no mineralogical studies of presolar silicates from this meteorite have been performed. Here we examine the mineralogy of a presolar silicate from QUE 99177.

    Full Text Available Non-symbiotic diazotrophic bacteria (NSDB influence plant growth mainly through biological nitrogenfixation and production and release of plant growth-regulating substances. The effect of these bacteria on rooting of olive is not described in the international literature, which has been provided by the use of hormonal treatment based on indole butyric acid (IBA. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the physiological diversity of isolates obtained from soil samples of the Biological Reserve Serra dos Toledos, Itajubá, MG state, and of reference strains of NSDB, and their potential of substitution of IBA on rooting of olive semi-hardwood cuttings from the experimental farm ‘Maria da Fé’ (FEMF-EPAMIG. The isolates were divided into five groups (G1 to G5 according with cultural phenotypic characteristics based on color, diameter and consistence of colonies, and reference strains used were Azospirillum brasilense (BR11001 t , Azospirillum amazonense (BR11040 t , Herbaspirillum seropedicae (BR11175 t and Burkholderia brasilensis (BR11340 t . The diversity of physiological was performed using phosphate solubilization, tolerance to different conditions of temperature and pH and production of indole acetic acid (IAA. To evaluate the potential of semi-hardwood cuttings rooting in olive cultivars were used the cultivars Ascolano 315, Arbequina and Grappolo 541, from the germoplasm blank of the FEMF-EPAMIG. There were 33 treatments, and the cuttings were inoculated with the bacterial isolate groups, with the reference strains, without inoculation (control and only IBA, commercially used in rooting. Only two isolates showed ability to solubilize phosphate. Groups of isolates and of reference strains showed very similar environmental requirements, with wide ranges of optimum conditions of pH (5,0-9,0 and temperature (15-35ºC for maximum growth. The isolates and reference strains showed a production IAA ranging from 110.53 to 383.58 μg mL -1 , and the groups of isolates generally did not differ significantly from the values obtained by reference strains. All the groups of isolates present potential of rooting of olive cuttings, and those of groups 1 and 4 are more indicated to Arbequina, group 2 to Grappolo 541 and groups 1 and 5 to Ascolano 315, with performances similar to those obtained from IBA.

    Full Text Available El objetivo de este trabajo es presentar algunas consideraciones acerca de las dificultades estructurales para establecer en Brasil un modelo de ciudadanía un iversal para, posteriormente, discutir el tipo de ciudadanía que entraría en vigor a partir de 1930 y que se caracteriza por ser una integración corporativista. Por otro lado, este modelo entró en declive en la década de 1990, justo después de la promulgación de la Constitución de 1988 –conocida como “Constituição Cidadã”-. Este declive no se hizo acompañar por el establecimiento de una ciudadanía universal, más bien al contrario, se desmontaron los derechos sociales establecidos en la década de 1930 y se sustituyeron por un modelo liberal en él que el Estado se interesaba poco por fortalecer los medios para la inclusión social. Más recientemente, el gobierno de Lula provocó una inflexión en este modelo. Aunque afirmar esto no significa que se establecira en Brasil los medios indispensables para el pleno ejercicio de la ciudadanía universal.Palabras-Clave: ciudadanía, intelectuales, nación, desarrollo. ___________________________Abstract:The objective of this text is to present some considerations about the structural difficulties to establish in Brazil the model of universal citizenship and then discuss the type of citizenship which was introduced from 1930 and which was characterized by corporatist integration. On the other hand, this model has declined in the 1990s, soon after the promulgation of the 1988 Constitution- known as the Citizen Constitution-.This decline was not accompanied by the establishment of universal citizenship, but instead went to the dismantling of social rights established in the distant decade of 1930 and its replacement by the liberal model in which the state is little interest in providing the means for inclusion social. More recently, the Lula government caused, however, a shift in this model. But saying that, does not mean that settled in Brazil with a means to the full exercise of universal citizenship.Keywords: citizenship, intellectuals, nation, development

  11. BETWEEN SACRED AND PROFANE: WOMAN‟S SEARCH FOR EXISTENCE IN ELIZABETH GILBERT‟S EAT, PRAY, LOVE

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Fatma Hetami

    2017-04-01

    The results indicate that the meaning of profane and sacred can be revealed through the description of liz‘s process in searching her existence. It can be seen in the novel‘s text through it‘s main signifier as represented by two words ‖big house‖ and ‖bath room‖. ‖Big house‖ symbolizes happiness, peace, and power; meanwhile ‖bath room‖ symbolizes sadness and loneliness. Liz, who is supposed to be comfortable living in happiness finally decides to negate it. Instead of enjoying her wonderful life represented by wealth, marriage, and family, Liz prefers to become nomadic, divorce her husband, and have no children. The process of searching her existence then leads her into spiritual experience that can be broken down into two binary oppositions: profane and sacred. She sacralizes the profane activities such as crying in the bath room, contemplating, scrubing the temple floors, and experiencing metaphysical crisis, to reach the God.

    Full Text Available Purpose: Diarrhoea in children is a common problem in low resourced countries including Malawi. It is caused by many intestinal parasites including Cryptosporidium parvum and Isospora belli. Both infections are prevalent in severely immunocompromised individuals and may cause severe life-threatening diarrhoea. The main aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of Cryptosporidium parvum and Isospora belli infections among children presenting with diarrhoea admitted to QECH - paediatrics wards and methods used for diagnosis. Some specific objectives were to determine the prevalence of Cryptosporidium parvum and Isospora belli infections among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV seropositive and HIV seronegative children with diarrhoea, to evaluate diagnostic methods used at QECH to identify intestinal parasites and to determine diagnostic methods that can be recommended for implementation. Methods: Faecal samples were collected from all children presenting with diarrhoea upon admission or already hospitalised were recruited excluding all children without or with acute diarrhoea (less than three days. Four smears were prepared from each sample: 2 for Ziehl Neelsen staining and the other 2 for Auramine-phenol staining. The data was entered into Microsoft Excel and analysed using Epi-Info. Results: A total of 25 children with diarrhoea under the age of five years; 10 were human immunodeficiency virus -seropositive, 7 were HIV-seronegative and 8 of them their status was unknown. Cryptosporidium parvum was detected in 4 children (16% at 4.5% and 36.1% confidence intervals and none had Isospora belli at 0.0% and 86.3% confidence intervals. Out of those 4 who had Cryptosporidium parvum, 3 children were HIV-seropositive and 1 child was HIV-seronegative at a frequency of 30% and 14.3% respectively. No infection was seen in children whose HIV-serostatus was unknown. Conclusion: Modified Ziehl Neelsen technique and auramine-phenol staining can be used to examine stool at QECH for C.parvum and I.belli identification. Although I.belli is prevalent in our environment, it has not yet been detected in children and or evolved as an endemic pathogen and so far remains as an opportunistic pathogen in adults only. There is need to repeat the study in rainy season and include gold standard method. [Cukurova Med J 2012; 37(3.000: 133-138

  15. Elizabeth Warrington Prize Lecture. Seeing why they cannot see: understanding the syndrome and causes of posterior cortical atrophy.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Crutch, Sebastian J

    2014-09-01

    Posterior cortical atrophy (PCA) is a syndrome defined by focal neurodegeneration of the parietal, occipital, and occipito-temporal cortices and associated with progressive dysfunction of visual processing, praxis, numeracy and reading. The condition is most commonly caused by (and viewed as an atypical presentation of) Alzheimer's disease, although can also be caused by other degenerative diseases. The current paper examines the relationship of PCA to other degenerative syndromes, and considers what comparisons of these syndromes and disease phenotypes can tell us about underlying disease mechanisms. The focus then turns to neuropsychological investigations of the cognitive basis of symptoms which, although unusual in the broader context of a dementia clinic, are particularly characteristic of the PCA syndrome, before exploring implications for clinical management and patient and carer support. © 2013 The British Psychological Society.

    The present archaeological survey and cultural resource assessment were conducted for the United States Department of Energy, Morgantown Energy Technology Center in areas to be disturbed by gas well drilling and holding pond construction. The project area is the Pine Creek drainage system, which is a tributary of the Ohio River in Scioto and Lawrence Counties, Ohio. The literature search indicated that prehistoric archaeological sites do occur and have been documented in the Pine Creek drainage system. Presently, no archaeological sites have been reported in locations of direct impact. The literature search also indicated that historic features from the early iron industry period, ca. 1840 to 1870, are likely to occur throughout the project area. Field reconnaissance identified three prehistoric archaeological sites and one historic site in and adjacent to the proposed locations of disturbance. Two sites were determined to be of significant research value and may be nominated to the National Register of Historic Places. Consequently, recommendations were made to minimize the adverse effects of the proposed drilling project on these archaeological sites.

  1. Climatology of clouds and precipitation over East Antarctica using ground-based remote sensing at the Princess Elizabeth station

    The surface mass balance of the Antarctic ice sheet is highly dependent on the interaction between clouds and precipitation. Our understanding of these processes is challenged by the limited availability of observations over the area and problems in Antarctic climate simulations by state-of-the-art climate models. Improvements are needed in this field, as the Antarctic ice sheet is expected to become a dominant contributor to sea level rise in the 21st century. In 2010, an observational site was established at the Princess Elisabeth (PE) Antarctic station. PE is located in the escarpment area of Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica (72°S, 23°E). The instruments consist of several ground-based remote sensing instruments: a ceilometer (measuring cloud-base height and vertical structure), a 24-GHz Micro Rain Radar (MRR; providing vertical profiles of radar effective reflectivity and Doppler velocity), and a pyrometer (measuring effective cloud base temperature). An automatic weather station provides info on boundary-layer meteorology (temperature, wind speed and direction, humidity, pressure), as well as broadband radiative fluxes and snow height changes. This set of instruments can be used to infer the role of clouds in the Antarctic climate system, their interaction with radiation and their impact on precipitation. Cloud and precipitation characteristics are derived from 5-year-long measurement series, which is unprecedented for the Antarctic region. Here, we present an overview of the cloud and precipitation climatology. Statistics on cloud occurrence are calculated on annual / seasonal basis and a distinction between liquid / mixed phase and ice clouds is made. One can discriminate between liquid-bearing and ice-only clouds by investigating the ceilometer attenuated backscatter, since liquid phase clouds have a much higher signal. Furthermore, by using pyrometer measurements, we are able to identify the range of temperatures at which liquid / ice clouds are observed over Antarctica. Precipitation numbers are determined from MRR reflectivity. We discriminate between virga (precipitation not reaching the surface) and snowfall (reaching the surface). The use of a rain radar is preferred over snow accumulation measurements, since there are multiple other processes regulating snow depth. The most important example is snowdrift, i.e. high winds over Antarctica which attribute for the redistribution of snow. Results show that precipitation numbers over East Antarctica have high interannual variability and total yearly accumulation depends on a few strong snowfall events every year.

    This essay examines African American novelist Pauline Hopkins’s deployment of the trope of respectable domesticity to contest black disenfranchisement in the context of African Americans’ ambivalent relationship to late-nineteenth-century US imperial expansion in the Asia Pacific. This essay analyzes Contending Forces (1900 in relation to two crucial yet underexplored contexts: first, Hopkins’s commentaries on international race relations; second, African American intellectuals’ commentaries on US imperial ventures in the Asia Pacific and on Chinese immigration in the Colored American Magazine, where Hopkins’s fictional works were serialized. Situated within these contexts of comparative racialization, Hopkins’s works offer critical responses to the masculine nationalist representations of black–Asian relations, illuminating the divisive effects of nationalist identification on differentially racialized subjects, the uneven effects of marriage on the black community, and this institution’s structural ties to imperialism and to the color-based class hierarchy within the imagined black community—all of which call for radical reimagining of race relations beyond the nation form.

    Children’s rights to participate in decision-making in matters which impact them directly, is a topic leading to increased research since the 1990s. Today, most countries, including South Africa, have included the right of children to participate and to be heard, in their legislation. In reality, however, there is still a big gap in the implementation of children’s right to participation. Home schooling as an alternative to mainstream schooling has also gained momentum in South Africa with an...

The text approaches the beginning of the Romanempire’s division into microstates, caused by the diminishing of the authoritycoming from Rome, following Valerianus’s death, Gallienus’s father. Thecentrifugal tendency of all the states included in the empire by force isincreasing, but it can mainly be found in the formations fromGallia,Britannia, Palmyra and partially from Dacia.

Les brimades endurées par le Christ dans deux Mystères anglais, Christ Before Herod et The Buffeting1, qui visent, pour les bourreaux, à humilier leur victime en faisant d’elle un bouffon, ont pour objet véritable de rendre évidente la folie d'un tel geste aux yeux des spectateurs, ainsi que le courage du Christ dans une mise en scène qui met en avant les qualités liminales de cette période de la vie du fils de Dieu, lequel est amené à devenir roi au terme de celle-ci. Elles mettent également en évidence le statut véritablement abject du fou professionnel.In the mystery cycles of York and Towneley, Jesus Christ is compared to a jester or a (wise fool by his opponents, something which is not so surprising if one takes into account the place given to the fool in medieval society. Indeed, despite his “wisdom” and because of his traditional lack of regard for his own person or status, the wise fool was the regular target of the same sort of abuse that the professional jester incurred, for it was the price they both had to pay for the special type of freedom they were awarded. The humiliations that Christ is subjected to in Christ Before Herod and The Buffeting, which his tormentors use to ridicule him, are evidence of their own folly and a testament to their victim’s fortitude. They exhibit the liminal qualities described by Turner in his analysis of the ritual process. And they are also a reminder of the truly abject condition of the professional fool.Nei misteri di York et di Towneley, il Cristo è rappresentato contemporaneamente come un buffone di corte e come un folle sapiente, cosa che può apparire paradossale ma le cui origini sono da rinvenirsi nel ruolo accordato al folle nella società medievale più in generale. Il folle detto «sapiente» era, a causa del disprezzo causato dalla sua fisicità e dal suo statuto sociale, oggetto della stessa considerazione riservata al suo omologo cortigiano: entrambi beneficiavano di una straordinaria libertà, pagata al prezzo della rinuncia ad ogni dignità. Le umiliazioni di cui è oggetto il Cristo in Christ Before Herod e The Buffeting, che lo riducono al rango di buffone, hanno la funzione di rendere manifesta la pazzia di un tale gesto agli occhi degli spettatori, ed insieme il coraggio del Cristo in una messa in scena que sottolinea le qualità liminari di questa fase della vita del figlio di Dio, destinato a divenire re al termine di questo processo. Analogamente, manifestano l’abiezione dello statuto del folle di professione.

The Olive trees are quite common and of great economical value in that area,especially in the island of Sardegna in Italy, where this work was developed, for treating one of the income main sources of the local economy. We observed a correlation between the elements Fe and Ca among infected leaves of Olive trees and not infected that is: leaves infected by the sooty mould present a large concentration of Fe and a low concentration of Ca when compared to the leaves not infected by the sooty mould. The oxidation state of Fe was determined by Moessbauer spectroscopy that revealed that this was Fe{sup 3+}. (author)

  15. Namık Kemal’in Sanat/Sanatçı Algısında Romantizm ve Victor Hugo Etkisi Influence of Romanticism and Victor Hugo on Namık Kemal’s Perception of Art/Artist

    Full Text Available As is known, the Tanzimat movement is the restructuring period during which Turkish society turned its face towards the West for the need of modernization and renewal. And the Tanzimat literature has formed the literary side of this process. It is known that the influence of Romanticism and especially Hugo, just like on the other authors, on N. Kemal, one of the greatest literary figures of the period, is of great extent. Besides reading the poems of Hugo, N. Kemal was fond of theplays and novels of his master and this fondness immediately showsitself. In his works, the result of his great admiration for Hugo, theinfluence of Romanticism and his master is in fact not limited to nowcommonly known "Hernani-Poor Child" and "Cromwell Foreword-Jalaluddin Foreword". But in this study, what we actually want toconcentrate on is the nature of the influence or the contribution ofRomanticism and Hugo on N. Kemal’s perception of the art and artist.Hugo, through the romantic school which was a revolution againstrationality, prescriptivism and elitism in the discourse adopted byclassical school, perceived the literature both as expansion of theliterature to a broad perspective, and as the defence of a thesis(litterature engagee, and on this basis how effective was Hugo’sinfluence and/or direction on our author will be the main question towhich our study will try to find an answer. As is well emphasized in thisresearch, there was a large agreement between the expectations ofKemal of literature and art and between Hugo’s style of literature. Afterall, like Hugo, Kemal was also persuaded to the great role of literaturein the creation of a new society. In this context, "Had he turned toRealism and its representatives, would we today find the same Kemal?How should we reconcile the popular full-toned sound of Kemal with hisromantic individualism?" are the questions that will engage us in thepresent study. Bilindiği gibi, Tanzimat hareketi Türk toplumunun çağdaşlaşma, yenilenme ihtiyacıyla yüzünü Batı’ya çevirdiği bir yapılanma dönemidir. Tanzimat edebiyatı da bu sürecin edebi tarafını oluşturmuştur. Dönemin diğer yazarları gibi bu edebiyatın en büyük simalarından N. Kemal’in üzerinde de romantizmin ve özellikle Hugo’nun etkilerinin büyük boyutlarda olduğu bilinen bir şeydir. Hugo’nun şiirlerini de okumakla beraber tiyatroları ve romanlarına daha büyük ilgi duyan N. Kemal’de bu ilginin sonuçları kendini göstermekte gecikmez. Eserlerinde, büyük bir Hugo hayranlığı sonucu, romantizmin ve şefinin etkileri aslında artık herkesin bildiği “Hernani-Zavallı Çocuk” ve “Cromwell Önsözü-Celaleddin Önsözü” ile sınırlı değildir. Ama bu çalışmada asıl üzerinde durmak istediğimiz şey, N. Kemal’in sanat ve sanatçı algısında romantizm ve Hugo’nun etki veya katkısının mahiyetidir. Klasik okulun akılcılığı, kuralcılığı ve hitapta benimsediği seçkinciliğine karşı bir devrim gerçekleştiren romantik okulla, edebiyatı geniş bir perspektife yaymakla beraber bir tezin savunulması (litterature engagée biçiminde de algılayan Hugo’nun yazarımız üzerindeki etki ve/ya yönlendirmelerin ne kadar etkin olduğu çalışmamızın cevabını bulmaya çalıştığı temel soru olacaktır. Çalışmada da üzerinde durduğumuz gibi, esasen Hugo tarzı sanat ve edebiyat yapma biçimi Namık Kemal’in edebiyattan beklentilerine büyük ölçüde uyuyordu. Ne de olsa o da Hugo gibi, kemal de yeni bir toplum oluşturmada sanat ve edebiyatın büyük rolüne inanıyordu. Bu bağlamda, “Realizme ve temsilcilerine yönelseydi acaba bu gün karşımızda yine aynı Kemal’i bulur muyduk? Kemal’in gür halkçı sesiyle romantik bireyciliği nasıl bağdaştırmalı?” gibi sorular çalışmada bizi meşgul edecek sorulardır.

    Selected physiological and biochemical parameters were monitored at the vegetative and reproductive growth stages in potted Bougainvillea plants treated with five different concentrations of TRIA. Advanced flowering, flower bud number, and blooming rate increased significantly with 0.5 and 1.0 mg/L TRIA treatments. Similarly, photosynthetic rate, pigment content, quantum yield, and stomatal conductance increased significantly with 2.5, 1.0, and 5.0 mg/L TRIA treatments. Higher levels of N, P, and K, as well as increased total soluble solids (TSS) and higher sugar and protein contents, were recorded in treated plants. Furthermore, 46% more flowers, a 1.5-fold increase in bract weight, increased longevity, and 40% less leaf abscission were recorded following 2.5 mg/L TRIA treatment. Phenol and flavonoid contents, sucrose phosphate synthase (SPS), and antioxidant activities were also markedly increased with 2.5 and 1.0 mg/L TRIA treatments. However, ethylene production was significantly lower in the treated plants. Positive correlations were observed between leaf TSS and flowering time and flower number, between leaf sugar content and bract weight, and between net photosynthesis and bract growth and dry matter production. It can be concluded that the foliar spray of TRIA stimulates growth, enhances flowering, and improves the quality of potted Bougainvillea plants. PMID:23970832

  8. Elizabeth Usher Memorial Lecture: Language is literacy is language - Positioning speech-language pathology in education policy, practice, paradigms and polemics.

    This paper is concerned with the fundamental and intrinsic links between early receptive and expressive oral language competence on the one hand and the transition to literacy in the early school years and achievement of academic (and life) success on the other. Consequently, it also concerns the professional knowledge base of two key disciplines whose work is central to children's early language and literacy success: teachers and speech-language pathologists (SLPs). Oral language competence underpins the transition to literacy, which in turn underpins academic achievement. Academic achievement is significant in its own right, conferring opportunities for further education and training post-secondary school, contributing to psychological health and mitigating some of the mental health risks and adversities that can be associated with adolescence and early adulthood. The central thesis is that the linguistic basis of the transition to literacy makes early reading success core business for SLPs. Further, SLPs need a firm grasp of the political and ideological factors that have exerted historical and continuing influence on reading instruction in western nations such as Australia, the US and the UK. This will facilitate the establishment of meaningful working relationships with teaching colleagues, to achieve optimal education outcomes for all children.

    Full Text Available Master archaeologist James Deetz richly merits this "Deetzschrift" by his students and colleagues. Reared in the hills of western Maryland and West Virginia, he was encouraged by a perceptive high school counselor to try for Harvard - successfully - as, says Deetz, "an early case of affirmatitive action…for hillbillies to Ivy League institutions". Deetz became a fabulously popular university professor at U.C. Santa Barbara and Brown, an author of small but seminal books on historical archaeology all while he and his wife raised a brood of nine children. Jim once told me they lived "on the greatest interior midden in Massachusetts".

    Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is endemic in Uganda in spite of the control measures used. Various aspects of the maintenance and circulation of FMD viruses (FMDV) in Uganda are not well understood; these include the role of the African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) as a reservoir for FMDV. To better...... serum samples had detectable antibodies against FMDV non-structural proteins (NSPs) using a pan-serotypic assay. Within these 37 sera, antibody titres ≥ 80 against the structural proteins of serotypes O, SAT 1, SAT 2 and SAT 3 were detected by ELISA in 5, 7, 4 and 3 samples, respectively, while...... are distinct from previous cattle and buffalo SAT 1 FMDV isolates obtained from the same area (19-30 % nucleotide difference) and from the vaccine strain (TAN/155/71) used within Uganda (26 % nucleotide difference).

    Full Text Available Background. Human-Immunodeficiency-Virus- (HIV- related Kaposi's sarcoma (KS has a high prevalence in Africa; however, there is minimal published data on treatment and outcomes in this population. Objective and Design. This was a prospective study of 50 patients, aiming to assess the impact of vincristine therapy on tumour response and survival and to assess palliative care outcomes in patients with HIV-related KS. Methods. 50 consecutive patients were recruited during 2008. Vincristine therapy and highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART were given. Tumour response, survival, and chemotherapy-related toxicities were documented. Palliative care outcomes were assessed using the African Palliative Care Association (APCA Palliative Outcome Scale (POS. Results. The majority of patients were male, and the median age was 33 years. At baseline assessment, the median CD4 T-cell count was 263, and 50% patients had evidence of peripheral neuropathy. The overall response rate was 64% at 6 weeks, and median progression-free survival was 30 weeks. Treatment was generally well tolerated, with peripheral neuropathy the main dose-limiting toxicity. Conclusion. The combination of vincristine and HAART is feasible and effective in a low resource setting, although peripheral neuropathy is a dose-limiting factor. This patient group carries a high mortality and as such adequate access to palliative care is crucial.

    Testing antibiotic resistance of bacterial strains (compulsor, reported for EARSS surveillance) isolated from patients hospitalised for systemic infection in the "Dr. V. Babe" Hospital for Infectious and Tropical Diseases during 01.01.2005-11.11.2009, for a dynamic evaluation and for the surveillance of resistance emergence for certain classes of antibiotics. Bacterial isolation: BacT/ALERT system; strain identification in classic and automated system (ATB Expression. VITEK 2C): antibioresistance: disk-difussion method (NCCLS 2005--CLSI 2009), MIC (E-Test, ATB/ Expression, VITEK 2C). Screening of ESBL-producing strains performed with double disk-difussion method (DDD). Reference strains used: S. aureus ATCC 25923, S. pneumoniae ATCC 49619, E. coli A TCC 25922, Enterococcus fiecalis ATCC 29212. During the studied period, 245 bacterial strains have been isolated, identified and tested (Staphylococcus aureus / 70, Streptococcus pneumoniae / 61, Enterococcus faecalis / 18, Enterococcus faecium / 5, Neisseria meningitidis / 18, E. coli / 73). out of 166 hemocultures and 79 cerebrospinal fluids / CSF. The average incidence of MRSA strains in systemic infections was 34.28%. 44.28% of the S. aureus strains were resistant to erythromycin, 17.14% to cyprofloxacyne, 15.71% to rifampicine, 14.49% to gentamycine. No strain resistant to vancomycine and linezolide. Streptococcus pneumoniae presented an average high resistance to penicillin G of 11.47%. and a 1.63% resistance to third generation cephalosporines. 0% resistance to vancomycine and rifampicine. 7/ 18 Enterococcus faecalis strains and 4/5 Enterococcus faecium strains presented high level resistance to gentamycine (CN 120 microg/disk) and no strain was resistant to vancomycine, teicoplanin or linezolid. The 18 Neisseria meningitidis strains were all sensitive to beta-lactams, macrolides, fluoroquinolones and cloramphenicol. For the 73 Escherichia coli strains, the average incidence of ESBL-producing isolates was 10.95%, the average resistance to ampicillin was 58.90%, to gentamycine--13.88% and to cyprofloxacin--20.83%. No strain resistant to carbapenemes and amikacine. For the systematic surveillance of antibiotic resistance there is a need for a harmonised protocol of data gathering and strain selection and the rigurous implementation of correct evaluating methods for antibiotic resistance in the microbiology laboratory. Carbapenemes. glycopeptides and oxazolidinones still present a major effectiveness in the first intention treatment of systemic infections.

    Full Text Available O sistema de saúde dos Estados Unidos é conhecido pelo seu alto custo, o que os americanos, por tradição, presumem ser o preço de excelência. Parte da assistência à saúde nos Estados Unidos é de fato excelente, mas sabemos que nele também existem sérios problemas de qualidade. Há forte evidência de que grande parte dos tratamentos está bastante aquém da excelência, sendo aplicados em demasia ou em dose insuficiente, e que índices de erro médico continuam alarmantes. Esse livro começa descrevendo o desempenho insatisfatório do sistema de saúde dos Estados Unidos, suas causas e as razões pelas quais as reformas anteriores não alteraram a trajetória do sistema. Em seguida, apresenta os princípios da competição baseada em valor focado em resultados, necessários para reformar de fato o sistema, e os passos que cada participante precisa tomar para abraçar o novo modelo. O capítulo 1 detalha os assombrosos desafios de desempenho enfrentados pelo sistema de saúde dos Estados Unidos, em termos de custo e qualidade. Ele apóia-se em evidência extraída de um amplo espectro de fontes e estudos, os quais, no seu conjunto, sublinham a profundidade e a abrangência do problema.

We set out to build a conceptual framework of issues descriptive of burden of treatment from the perspective of the complex patient, as a first step in the development of a new patient-reported measure.Methods: We conducted semistructured interviews with patients seeking medication therapy management services at a large, academic medical center. All patients had a complex regimen of self-care (including polypharmacy, and were coping with one or more chronic health conditions. We used framework analysis to identify and code themes and subthemes. A conceptual framework of burden of treatment was outlined from emergent themes and subthemes.Results: Thirty-two patients (20 female, 12 male, age 26–85 years were interviewed. Three broad themes of burden of treatment emerged including: the work patients must do to care for their health; problem-focused strategies and tools to facilitate the work of self-care; and factors that exacerbate the burden felt. The latter theme encompasses six subthemes including challenges with taking medication, emotional problems with others, role and activity limitations, financial challenges, confusion about medical information, and health care delivery obstacles

For each session, the subjects were evaluated before and after intervention. In the pre-intervention period, blood pressure, forearm blood flow, and forearm vascular resistance were measured after 10 minutes of rest in the supine position. Thereafter, the subjects were taken to the gym to perform their exercise sessions or remained at rest during the same time period. Both S1 and S3 comprised a set of ten repetitions of ten exercises, with an interval of 90 seconds between exercises. Subsequently, the measurements were again performed at 10, 30, 50, 70, and 90 minutes of recovery (post-intervention in the supine position.Results: Post-exercise hypotension was greater in S3 than in S1 (systolic blood pressure, −26.5±4.2 mmHg versus −17.9±4.7 mmHg; diastolic blood pressure, −13.8±4.9 mmHg versus −7.7±5 mmHg, P<0.05. Similarly, forearm blood flow and forearm vascular resistance changed significantly in both sessions with an increase and decrease, respectively, that was more evident in S3 than in S1 (P<0.05.Conclusion: Resistance exercises with higher volume were more effective in causing post-exercise hypotension, being accompanied by an increase in forearm blood flow and a reduction of forearm vascular

Exercise is a nonpharmacological treatment shown to benefit all patients with hypertension. Objective: This study examined the effects of a 14-week moderate intensity resistance training program (RT on the maintenance of blood pressure and hand grip strength during an extended detraining period in elderly hypertensive women. Methods: Twelve hypertensive sedentary elderly women completed 14 weeks of whole body RT at a moderate perceived exertion following a detraining period of 14 weeks. Results: Following the training period, participants demonstrated an increase in absolute hand grip strength (P=0.001, relative hand grip strength (P=0.032 and a decrease of systolic (P=0.001, diastolic (P=0.008, and mean blood pressure (P=0.002 when compared to pre-exercise values.

Advances in technology may improve methods of patient recruitment and screening in PCTs. Our study looked at a tablet computer versus an integrated voice response system (IVRS for patient recruitment and screening for an osteoporosis PCT in community physician offices.Materials and methods: We recruited women ≥ 65 years of age from community physician offices to answer screening questions for a hypothetical osteoporosis active comparator PCT using a tablet computer or IVRS. We assessed the feasibility of these technologies for patient recruitment as well as for patient, physician, and office staff satisfaction with the process. We also evaluated the implications of these novel recruitment processes in determining the number of primary care practices and screened patients needed to conduct the proposed trial.Results: A total of 160 women (80% of those approached agreed to complete the osteoporosis screening questions in ten family physicians’ offices.

    Full Text Available Objectives – To determine whether clinical librarian services cause healthcare providers to change their information seeking behaviors. To evaluate librarians’ educational roles for clinicians, patients, and patients’ families.Design – Randomized controlled trial.Setting – An academic, health‐sciences center, teaching hospital in Canada.Subjects – A total of eight teams, each consisting of at least eight members who represented at least three different types of health professionals. Four teams (rheumatology, obstetrics, neurology, and pediatrics were randomized into the intervention group to receive clinical librarian services for a six‐month period,and four teams (hematology, diabetic day care, pain clinic, and community psychiatry were randomized into the control group that did not receive clinical librarian services.Methods – Two half‐time clinical librarians attended the intervention groups’ rounds, clinics, and conferences identified as having educational components or where questions would likely arise related to patient care. The two clinical librarians handled 600perceived or actual information requests, delivered 1,200 documents, and provided over 3,000 references during the twelve month study period of September 1978 to August 1979. The typical service consisted of the clinical librarian securing one or two articles relevant to the question raised along with pertinent references placed in a “hot topics” ring binder located in the clinical wards. Healthcare providers were alerted to or reminded about the clinical librarian service through a brochure and an exhibit. The brochure also advertised the clinical librarian service to patients or their families. Approximately 24% of all information requests fielded by the clinical librarians originated from patients or their families. The remaining information requests originated from physicians (40%, allied health professionals (21%, and nurses (15% belonging to these interdisciplinary intervention group teams.Main Results – Trained impartial interviewers conducted in‐depth interviews with members of both the intervention group teams and the control group teams immediately following the first six‐month study period and then again three months after the end of the study period. Following the initial six months of the study period, 67% of the members of the intervention group compared to 37% of the members of the study group used the library’s reference services. Three months after the study period had ended, 76% of the members of the intervention group compared to 49% of the members of the study group had used the reference services. The authors reported in a one‐sentence page note that these findings were statistically significant beyond the .05 level as measured by chi‐square and analysis of variance tests. Three months after the study period had ended, 60% of the members of the intervention group compared to 38% of the members of the study group reported rating highly the useof library resources. In addition, three months after the study period had ended, 36% of the members of the intervention group compared to 27% of the members of the study group reported rating highly the use of reference librarians. Although patients or their families were generally positive in rating the clinical librarians’services, they proved to be a difficult population upon which to conduct a comprehensive follow‐up evaluation study once patients had left the hospital.Conclusion – The authors conclude that the clinical librarian services to the four intervention groups had changed the group members’ information seeking behavior.

    Full Text Available Abstract We establish some exponential inequalities for positively associated random variables without the boundedness assumption. These inequalities improve the corresponding results obtained by Oliveira (2005. By one of the inequalities, we obtain the convergence rate for the case of geometrically decreasing covariances, which closes to the optimal achievable convergence rate for independent random variables under the Hartman-Wintner law of the iterated logarithm and improves the convergence rate derived by Oliveira (2005 for the above case.

The purpose of this study was to finalize a conceptual framework of treatment burden that will be used to inform a new patient-reported measure of this construct. Patients and methods: Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 50 chronically ill patients from a large academic medical center (n=32 and an urban safety-net hospital (n=18. We coded themes identifying treatment burden, with the themes harmonized through discussion between multiple coders. Four focus groups, each with five to eight participants with chronic illness, were subsequently held to confirm the thematic structure that emerged from the interviews.

    Full Text Available This article addresses the peculiar fact that in most art historical surveys the narrative of Islamic art history ends around 1800 CE. It considers the roots of this idiosyncrasy and its implications for attempts to coopt or instrumentalize the objects of Islamic art in the decade after 2001 in discourses of liberalism and tolerance in which an originary Islam was contrasted with modern more 'fundamentalist' understandings of religious belief and practice. It explores contradictions inherent in related attempts to locate models for Muslim religious subjectivity in medieval artefacts secularized as art objects.

    As early as the 1600's scientists in various fields world to address a global human need of human communication on a global basis by implementing the trans-Atlantic cable. The Mid 4Trans-Atlantic cable is one of the earliest forms of global commutation. Here may be the first evidence of informatics needs where science, data, and engineering were collaborated across disciplines to advance a world standard of living. This work investigates what applied ontology may have been consisting with the thought pattern of such expertise who conducted informatics arguably without computers, ontology’s, and a cyber infrastructure. In modern context, an applied ontology may best represent the body of intentional learning, research and collaboration among scientists to achieve a human goal. Perhaps if such intentional non-partisan work can achieve a solution such as Trans-Atlantic Cable, climate change may benefit from intentional collaborative ontology’s and systems of multi user knowledgebase or expert informatics systems. 1Bruce C. Heezen 1924 -1977 American Geologist famous for mapping the Mid Atlantic Mountain Ridge in the 1950’s. Heezen died in 1977 on a submarine cruise to study the Mid-Atlantic ridge near Ice land aboard the NR-1 submarine. 7Marie Tharp academic background is Bachelors Degree in English, Master Degree in Geology University of Michigan, and Mathematics Degree at the University of Tulsa. Tharp worked at Lamont- Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University. History of the Digital Divide during the 1600’s touches on the availability of information. 3Issue of Mathematics during the 1600’s would be lack of communications and assessment. The scientific communities cannot address climate change most largely due to language barriers amongst humans.
