  2. Land Regularisation in Vidigal, Rio de Janeiro - Was de Soto right?

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available Based largely on economist, Hernando de Soto’s, work many developing countries have implemented programmes of formalisation of property in order to unleash capital located within informal settlements and to promote wider economic growth. Although many authors have illustrated that legalised property alone does not necessarily lead to these economic advantages, Brazil’s government has sought to create other mechanisms that should help the production of such benefits. For this reason, this paper, drawn from my Masters dissertation, explores land regularisation in the informal settlement, Vidigal, in Rio de Janeiro. It aims to understand the economic impact of land regularisation in Vidigal and if the benefits of legalised property, proposed by de Soto, have actually materialised there. By looking at one community, it hopes to highlight some of the shortcomings of the programme that still persist, which should be considered during the design and implementation of future programmes.

  3. A common mutation associated with the Duarte galactosemia allele

    The human cDNA and gene for galactose-1-phosphate uridyl transferase (GALT) have been cloned and sequenced. A prevalant mutation (Q188R) is known to cause classic galactosemia (G/G). G/G galactosemia has an incidence of 1/38,886 in 1,396,766 Georgia live-born infants, but a more common variant of galactosemia, Duarte, has an unknown incidence. The proposed Duarte biochemical phenotypes of GALT are as follows: D/N, D/D, and D/G, which have [approximately]75%, 50%, and 25% of normal GALT activity, respectively. In addition, the D allele has isoforms of its enzyme that have more acidic pI than normal. Here the authors systematically determine (a) the prevalence of an A-to-G transition at base pair 2744 of exon 10 in the GALT gene, a transition that produces a codon change converting asparagine to aspartic acid at position 314 (N314D), and (b) the association of this mutation with the Duarte biochemical phenotype. The 2744G nucleotide change adds an AvaII (SinI) cut site, which was identified in PCR-amplified DNA. In 111 biochemically unphenotyped controls with no history of galactosemia, 13 N314D alleles were identified (prevalence 5.9%). In a prospective study, 40 D alleles were biochemically phenotyped, and 40 N314D alleles were found. By contrast, in 36 individuals known not to have the Duarte biochemical phenotype, no N314D alleles were found. The authors conclude that the N314D mutation is a common allele that probably causes the Duarte GALT biochemical phenotype and occurs in a predominantly Caucasian, nongalactosemic population, with a prevalence of 5.9%. 36 refs., 3 figs., 2 tabs.

  4. Molecular basis for Duarte and Los Angeles variant galactosemia

    Human erythrocytes that are homozygous for the Duarte enzyme variant of galactosemia (D/D) have a characteristic isoform on isoelectric focusing and 50% reduction in galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT) enzyme activity. The Duarte biochemical phenotype has a molecular genotype of N314D/N314D. The characteristic Duarte isoform is also associated with a variant called the {open_quotes}Los Angeles (LA) phenotype,{close_quotes} which has increased GALT enzyme activity. We evaluated GALT enzyme activity and screened the GALT genes of 145 patients with one or more N314D-containing alleles. We found seven with the LA biochemical phenotype, and all had a 1721C{r_arrow}T transition in exon 7 in cis with the N314D missense mutation. The 1721C{r_arrow}T transition is a neutral polymorphism for leucine at amino acid 218 (L218L). In pedigree analyses, this 1721C{r_arrow}T transition segregated with the LA phenotype of increased GALT activity in three different biochemical phenotypes (LA/N, LA/G, and LA/D). To determine the mechanism for increased activity of the LA variant, we compared GALT mRNA, protein abundance, and enzyme thermal stability in lymphoblast cell lines of D and LA phenotypes with comparable genotypes. GALT protein abundance was increased in LA compared to D alleles, but mRNA was similar among all genotypes. We conclude that the codon change N314D in cis with the base-pair transition 1721C{r_arrow}T produces the LA variant of galactosemia and that this nucleotide change increases GALT activity by increasing GALT protein abundance without increasing transcription or decreasing thermal lability. A favorable codon bias for the mutated codon with consequently increased translation rates is postulated as the mechanism. 23 refs., 3 figs., 4 tabs.

  6. Violencia sexual en La familia de Pascual Duarte

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available Ambiguity in La familia de Pascual Duarte has caused critics to construe it in many different and often contradictory ways. This article analyses the interplay between sex, family and death and explains how it holds the key to understanding the main character’s psychology and also his guilt. An examination of the protagonist’s acts of aggression will show that he relates sex to death and has come to experience violence and murder as allegories of sex. Pascual’s social and personal background is crucial to determining that the violence he infringes upon others results from an inferiority complex developed due to his father’s sexual impotence and his mother’s promiscuity. This complex is further aggravated by his low social background. This paper also analyses how Pascual equates sex to violence, and how he fosters an obsession with procreation. This conception of sex is best exemplified in his comparing Lola’s ecstasy with the dying mare and leads to Pascual’s murdering his mother as an allegorical form of rape. This analysis thus provides a new interpretation of the mother’s murder and completes Pascual’s psychological picture.La ambigüedad que impregna La familia de Pascual Duarte ha propiciado que se haya venido interpretando de modos muy varios y contradictorios. El presente trabajo se centra en la interrelación entre sexo, familia y muerte, y cómo esta provee las claves para entender la psicología de Pascual y su responsabilidad en los hechos que narra. Un análisis de las agresiones del protagonista muestra cómo relaciona el sexo con la muerte hasta concebir la violencia y el asesinato como alegorías del sexo. El contexto de su vida permite determinar que Pascual agrede por razón de un complejo de inferioridad viril desarrollado a consecuencia de la impotencia sexual de su padre y de la promiscuidad de su madre, complejo agravado por su conciencia de marginación social. Se demuestra cómo Pascual interrelaciona el

    Reviews Dinesh D'Souza's "The End of Racism: Principles for a Multiracial Society" (1995), exploring his neoconservative ideology in the context of concepts of the underclass and what it means to be Asian American or an immigrant. D'Souza perpetuates the Model Minority thesis, which is itself a form of inferential racism. (SLD)

    WE REPORT THE FIRST CASE OF COSEGREGATION OF TWO HAEMOGLOBINS (HBS): HbG-Philadelphia [α68(E17)Asn → Lys] and HbDuarte [β62(E6)Ala → Pro]. The proband is a young patient heterozygous also for β°-thalassaemia. We detected exclusively two haemoglobin variants: HbDuarte and HbG-Philadelphia/Duarte. Functional study of the new double variant HbG-Philadelphia/Duarte exhibited an increase in oxygen affinity, with a slight decrease of cooperativity and Bohr effect. This functional behaviour is attributed to β62Ala → Pro instead of α68Asn → Lys substitution. Indeed, HbG-Philadelphia isolated in our laboratory from blood cells donor carrier for this variant is not affected by any functional modification, whereas purified Hb Duarte showed functional properties very similar to the double variant. NMR and MD simulation studies confirmed that the presence of Pro instead of Ala at the β62 position produces displacement of the E helix and modifications of the tertiary structure. The substitution α68(E17)Asn → Lys does not cause significant structural and dynamical modifications of the protein. A possible structure-based rational of substitution effects is suggested.

  10. Both "illness and temptation of the enemy": melancholy, the medieval patient and the writings of King Duarte of Portugal (r. 1433-38).

    2009-06-01

    Recent historians have rehabilitated King Duarte of Portugal, previously maligned and neglected, as an astute ruler and philosopher. There is still a tendency, however, to view Duarte as a depressive or a hypochondriac, due to his own description of his melancholy in his advice book, the Loyal Counselor. This paper reassesses Duarte's writings, drawing on key approaches in the history of medicine, such as narrative medicine and the history of the patient. It is important to take Duarte's views on his condition seriously, placing them in the medical and theological contexts of his time and avoiding modern retrospective diagnosis. Duarte's writings can be used to explore the impact of plague, doubt and death on the life of a well-educated and conscientious late-medieval ruler.

    Full Text Available In this article, I examine the ways in which literature and cinema interact in the work of Ruy Duarte de Carvalho, focusing on the cinematic writing of the poems of sinais misteriosos… já se vê… and the novel Os papéis do Inglês. In these texts, the cinematic image sometimes appears as a strange copy of reality, other times as a vision that creates other realities, and other times as something connected to memory. Cinema, with its visual and sound components, challenges the limits of literary language. At the same time it provides new possibilities for poetry and narrative, which emerge from their encounter with the language of cinema.

    Roland, Maria Inês de França; Gianini, Reinaldo José

    2013-01-01

    This essay is on the writings of sanitary doctor Geraldo Horácio de Paula Souza in Eugenia e Imigração (1928) and, after an official trip to the Orient, in Digressões sobre a medicina chinesa clássica (1942) and A sabedoria chinesa diante da ciência ocidental e a Escola Médica de Pequim (1943). The documents, analyzed according to the conceptual approach of Carlo Ginzburg, indicate a change in his view of the Chinese. Trained according to the Rockefeller Foundation's model of experimental medicine, Geraldo de Paula Souza was guided in his work by scientific rigor and record imagery. In his youth he was of the opinion that the Chinese civilization was stagnated, but this view changed after his visit, when he perceived the Chinese republic's capacity to modernize.

  15. AS FORMAS DO EU NA FICÇÃO DE RODRIGO DE SOUZA LEÃO

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available The biographical records about Rodrigo de Souza Leão allow us to establish some connections between the factual and the fictional registered in his literary works. The characters of the novels and the actions that are presented somehow reproduce some of the individual attributes and events experienced by the writer. The hypothesis of an autoficcional project seems valid to us, justifying therefore different degrees of relationship between the literary work and its creator. Given these impressions, in this paper we propose a reading of the functions / figurations in which the narrators-characters of Todos os cachorros são azuis (2008, Me roubaram uns dias contados (2010 and O Esquizoide: coração na boca (2011 are recognizable in their novels assumed as it follows: narrator-author; narrator as a witness; and narrator-playwright.

  17. Sociologia e história na obra de José de Souza Martins

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    William Héctor Gómez Soto

    Full Text Available Resumo O autor analisa a sociologia de José de Souza Martins, centrando a atenção em sua perspectiva teórica e seu método dialético. Martins escolhe como objeto aquilo que está à margem da sociedade e das ciências sociais, como, por exemplo, o destino das populações rurais, os sonhos dos trabalhadores das grandes cidades, a aparição do demônio numa fábrica e a vida cotidiana do homem simples. Discípulo de Florestan Fernandes, Martins dialoga com Marx e Lefebvre, dos quais toma duas noções fundamentais: a de menos-valia e a de resíduo. O autor deste artigo destaca que essas duas noções, aparentemente insignificantes, são a chave para compreender a contribuição de Martins. Na sociologia de Martins, o que está à margem e que é liminar não apenas é um tema como também, e principalmente, um recurso metodológico.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available En este artículo, se discuten las conexiones entre la vida y la obra de Elizandra de Souza, escritora asociada con la producción literaria de la periferia de São Paulo, en el contexto de las discusiones teóricas sobre la diáspora africana, el pensamiento feminista negro y el pensamiento decolonial latinoamericano. Argumento que Elizandra toma como punto de partida una formación identitataria espiralada/sampleada que atraviesa y expande las páginas del libro en su materialidad impresa con la intención de construir un puente entre la música (hip hop, la literatura (Punga e Águas da cabaça y la tecnología (la Radio Comunitaria de Heliópolis. De este modo, Elizandra establece una presencia política que borronea e impugna la percepción que la sociedad tiene respecto a los habitantes de la periferia como sujetos definidos por la falta. Sostengo además que no es posible entender la obra de Elizandra o la actual periferia brasileña si no se toman en cuenta una multiplicidad de elementos, tales como: los mecanismos alternativos de comunicación comunitaria, la cultura hip hop y los saraus. Mi argumento final es que su libro Águas da cabaça desafía una centralidad masculina que se ha tornado predominante en las narrativas sobre la periferia, mientras que señala una alianza transatlántica con otras escritoras de la diáspora africana.

    The present report refers to the Lima Duarte sheet (SF.23-X-C-VI) systematic geological mapping, on the 1:100.000 scale. The surveyed area, localized in the Zona da Mata, Juiz de Fora micro-region, in South Minas Gerais, is dominantly composed by metamorphic rocks of the granulite and amphibolite facies and presents important diphtheritic process. An analysis of the Crustal Evolution Patterns based mostly on geological mapping, and gravimetric, air magneto metric and geochronologic data is given in the Chapter 6, Part II, of the text. Geophysical information is in the Chapter 5, Part II. Seventy two samples were analysed for oxides, trace-elements and REE, to provide litho environment and metallogenesis definition subsidies. Were studied 174 petrographic thin section, and 48 samples of quartzite and schist residual materials were analysed for heavy metals. Seven hundred and fifty outcrops were described. A geochemical survey, based on 81 pan concentrated samples and 277 stream sediments was carried out throughout the Sheet. The anomalies found in the stream sediments reflect the geochemical signature of the analysed elements for the litho types of the investigated terrains. (author)

  20. Modeling Hydrological Services in Shade Grown Coffee Systems: Case Study of the Pico Duarte Region of the Dominican Republic

    The modification of hydrologic systems in coffee-dominated landscapes varies widely according to the degree of shade trees incorporated in coffee farms. Compared to mono-cropping systems, shade coffee can produce both on- and off-farm benefits in the form of soil retention, moderation of sediment transport, and lower hydropower generating costs. The Pico Duarte Coffee Region and surrounding Madres de Las Aguas (Mother of Waters) Conservation Area in the Dominican Republic is emblematic of the challenges and opportunities of ecosystem service management in coffee landscapes. Shade coffee poly-cultures in the region play an essential role in ensuring ecosystem function to conserve water resources, as well as provide habitat for birds, sequester carbon, and provide consumptive resources to households. To model the provision, use, and flow of ecosystem services from coffee farms in the region, an application of the Artificial Intelligence for Ecosystem Services (ARIES) model was developed with particular focus on sediment regulation. ARIES incorporates an array of techniques from data mining, image analysis, neural networks, Bayesian statistics, information theory, and expert systems to model the production, delivery, and demand for ecosystem services. Geospatial data on slope, soils, and vegetation cover is combined with on-farm data collection of coffee production, tree diversity, and intercropping of household food. Given hydropower production and river recreation in the region, the management of sedimentation through on-farm practices has substantial, currently uncompensated value that has received recent attention as the foundation for a payment for ecosystem services system. Scenario analysis of the implications of agro-forestry management choices on farmer livelihoods and the multiple beneficiaries of farm-provided hydrological services provide a foundation for ongoing discussions in the region between local, national, and international interests.

Não se trata de um estudo dos pressupostos ou paradigmas científicos, mas de imagens da história da institucionalização da ciência em São Paulo. O texto trata de uma instituição fortalecida ao longo de várias décadas, sob uma liderança que Robert K. Merton chamaria de 'catalisadora'. Através do riquíssimo material iconográfico deixado pelo médico sanitarista Geraldo Horácio de Paula Souza foi possível reconstruir um período importante da atuação profissional desse grande sanitarista à frente do Instituto de Higiene - embrião da atual Faculdade de Saúde Pública da USP - e os primeiros tempos de criação dessa instituição paulista.The article looks at an important chapter in the institutionalization of 'applied science' in Brazil. It is not a study of scientific suppositions or paradigms but of images from the history of the institutionalization of science in São Paulo. It examines an institution that was strengthened over a number of decades, under a leadership that Robert K. Merton was to call 'catalyzing'. Using invaluable iconographic material left by the sanitarian and physician Geraldo Horácio de Paula Souza, it was possible to reconstruct not only an important period in the professional life of this great sanitarian, who was at the helm of the Institute of Hygiene (embryo of the Universidade de São Paulo's present Public Health School, but also the early days of the creation of this São Paulo institute.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é analisar como a trajetória da Ação Popular (AP, organização de esquerda das décadas de 1960 e 1970, é narrada e interpretada por Duarte Pacheco Pereira, um dos mais importantes dirigentes de sua história. Caracterizada por sua origem heterodoxa, influenciada pelo humanismo cristão, pelo existencialismo e pelo marxismo, a AP estabeleceu, na conjuntura posterior a 1964, um processo de ruptura com seu passado e de adesão à tradição do marxismo-leninismo, que foi permeado por tensões e cisões políticas. Investigando a interface entre as suas memórias e a história da AP, procura-se aferir sua contribuição à interpretação da singular práxis dessa organização política. A análise tem o suporte de entrevistas concedidas por Duarte Pacheco Pereira, de uma palestra que ele proferiu e do fundo documental que leva seu nome, disponível no Arquivo Edgard Leuenroth.

    Full Text Available Esta apresentação visa discutir alguns aspectos da pesquisa que se está sendo desenvolvidano momento, a qual trata de analisar a produção literária de Rodrigo de Souza Leão, autor considerado louco. Estão sendo privilegiadas, nesta análise, as obras literárias “Todos os Cachorros são Azuis” e “ O Esquizoide: coração na boca”. O objetivo desta pesquisa, através da análise da produção literária de Rodrigo de Souza Leão, é perceber a experiência da loucura e o próprio processo de subjetivação na construção de sua obra, bem como analisar como esta obra foi aceita pelo público. Compreende-se que, para Foucault, a subjetivação é um processo, pelo qual, se obtém a constituição de um sujeito ou de uma subjetividade. Desta forma, a contribuição deste pesquisador é fundamental para a construção deste trabalho para analisar não somente o processo de constituição do próprio escritor, mas também servirá para analisar os discursos em torno de Rodrigo. Para desenvolver essa pesquisa será de grande importância o diálogo com outras vertentes do saber, para além da História, como a Literatura, Psicologia e a Psiquiatria, pois o texto do Rodrigo traz uma abrangência sobre diferentes temas e várias possibilidades de análise. Mesmo com o diálogo com outras ciências, os elementos do consciente, serão privilegiados nesta pesquisa, pois como afirmou Roy Porter, mais importante que estudar o inconsciente dos loucos é necessário estudar o consciente das pessoas que passaram pela a experiência da loucura. Desta forma, buscar-se-á analisar através das narrativas do Rodrigo como ele vivenciou a loucura e como este processo de subjetivação esteve presente na própria produção da arte

    Full Text Available Anemopaegma arvense (Vell Stellf. ex de Souza belongs to the family Bignoniaceae, and is popularly known as catuaba. To evaluate the cytotoxic and antimicrobial activity of A. arvense, fraction F3 and flavonoids 1 (quercetin 3-O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→6-β-D-glucopyranoside (rutin and flavonoid 2 (quercetin 3-O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1→6-β-D-galactopyranoside were isolated from the leaves of this plant. Fraction F3 and flavonoids 1 and 2 exhibited no antibacterial activity. Furthermore, no cytotoxic activity of fraction 3 or flavonoids 1 and 2 was observed against the tumor cells tested. However, analysis of the antifungal activity of flavonoids 1 and 2 revealed minimum inhibitory concentrations of 0.5 and 0.25 mg/mL, respectively, against the Trichophyton rubrum strains tested (wild type and mutant. This study demonstrates for the first time the antifungal activity of isolated flavonoids, validating the same activity for A. arvense.

    Full Text Available A facilidade de adaptação dos insetos aos diversos ambientes faz com que sejam encontrados em todos os tipos de habitats, independente de seu nível de sucessão. Sendo assim, o objetivo do estudo foi verificar a sucessão na comunidade de artrópodes em uma área de aterro em Santa Cruz do Sul, correlacionando os dados com a sazonalidade e a vegetação presente no local. A pesquisa foi realizada em uma área de aterro, da empresa Souza Cruz. Para a coleta do material entomológico, foram utilizados 17 pontos amostrais na área. As coletas foram realizadas quinzenalmente de junho de 2013 a junho de 2014, totalizando 24 coletas, seis em cada estação do ano. Em cada ponto foram instaladas quatro armadilhas do tipo pit-fall. Foi amostrado um total de 81.438 indivíduos pertencentes a 24 táxons diferentes. Sendo 19.828 no inverno, 24.845 na primavera, 20.635 no verão e 16.130 no outono. A maior amostragem durante todas as estações foi Formicidae (Hymenoptera, com 50.239 espécimes coletados, o que representa 62% do total. Nos dados obtidos nesse período, foi possível inferir que há certa dominância de poucos táxons, que possuem maior potencial de adaptação a ambientes perturbados antropicamente.

    Full Text Available O artigo analisa as concepções formuladas na segunda metade do século XIX por dois intelectuais brasileiros, Francisco Belisário Soares de Souza e José de Alencar, sobre a representação política das minorias, principalmente no que concerne ao sistema proporcional como mecanismo eleitoral. Além disso, recorreremos a outros intelectuais, como John Stuart Mill, no qual os dois autores em grande medida se apoiam para fazer as suas discussões, com a finalidade de compreender o debate sobre o tema na época.

    Social parasites exhibit several characteristics that allow them to exploit their host species efficiently. The smaller size of parasite species is a trait commonly found in ants. In this work, we investigated several aspects of the reproductive biology of Acromyrmex ameliae De Souza, Soares & Della Lucia, a recently discovered parasite of Acromyrmex subterraneus subterraneus Forel. Sexuals of A. ameliae are substantially smaller than those from host species. Parasite queens laid significantly less worker eggs than host queens and inhibit sexual production of the host. The sex ratio of parasite species is highly female biased. Interestingly, we have observed parasite coupling on the laboratory, inside the nests and in the ground, opening the possibility to use controlled mating to study genetic approaches of parasitism in the ants.

  13. Sintomas de “regionalismo crítico”: sobre o “decorativismo” na pintura de Amadeo de Souza Cardoso

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Cunha Leal, Joana

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available This article discusses at its outset the way Portuguese art history acknowledged and debated the relation that Amadeo Souza Cardoso’s painting establishes between international modernism and its regional Portuguese provenance. This debate imposed the idea that Amadeo’s national origins brought about, by way of the putative Portuguese disregard of main cultural and aesthetic standards, a trace of provincialism, eventually making his work unable of any critical stance. This provincialism is diagnosed on the basis of Amadeo’s decorative appropriation of Robert Delaunay’s simultaneous color circles. This article discusses this thesis, demonstrating that, far from the reactionary drive associated to it, Amadeo’s decorative interpretation of such element must, instead, be understood as a symptom of resistance, one that can be acknowledged as approaching the idea of “critical regionalism”. A final hypothesis suggests that the invisibility of this symptom arises from a perspective that associates modernism to the overcoming of representation in art.Se analiza cómo la historiografía portuguesa dimensionó la relación que la pintura de Amadeo de Souza Cardoso (1887-1918 establece entre las indagaciones internacionales del modernismo y su regional “portugalidad”. Somos conducidos así a la idea de que el origen portugués introduce en la obra de Amadeo, por putativa insuficiencia cultural y estética, un ingenuo provincianismo desprovisto de instancia crítica. Ese provincianismo lo haría apropiarse decorativamente de los célebres discos simultáneos de Robert Delaunay. Este artículo pretende discutir esa tesis, procurando demostrar que, lejos de la distorsión que se le atribuye, la apropiación “decorativa” que Amadeo hace de ese elemento se inscribe en un plano de resistencia cercano a la idea de “regionalismo crítico”. Sobreviene, por fin, la hipótesis, desarrollada a partir del análisis de una tele de 1917, de que la

The A. says that the results published about the general action of his Leprolin in leprosy must be revised or rectificated. But he says that the rapid action of his antigen upon perforant ulcers in lepers is consecrated by a large experience. He cured, in relatively short time, perforant ulcers in five lepers. Dr. CASSIANO, from Baurú leper Colony (S. Paulo treated 21 such cases. The median time of treatment was 23 days and the median dosage of Leprolin injected in each patient was 7.7 cm3. All lesions were cured. After 18 months observation three cases relapsed and 18 (or 85.7% remained cured. Dr. CALDEIRA, Director of padre DAMIEN Leper Colony (Ubá, Minas Gerais treated regularly with Leprolin 50 cases of severe perforant ulcers and obtained cure in 46 (or 92%. ina special meeting held in Minas Gerais nineteen leprologists examined the cases of Dr. CALDEIRA and considered the results he have obtained as "magnifico", in the sense as "unic".

Nesse contexto, o objetivo deste trabalho é sustentar a obra da autora como contracorrente do que se impõe, como resistência ainda possível. Não obstante, analisa-se como o pensamento da autora contribuiu para nos legar uma psicologia absolutamente diferente da que ela própria encontrou. Abordam-se temas estudados em profundidade pela autora, tais como a história da psicologia, o fracasso escolar, a psicologia escolar, a psicologia aplicada à infância, a crítica à psicologia e as relações entre psicologia e política, temas sempre reunidos pela denúncia à ideologia hegemônica e pela indignação diante dos novos movimentos ideológicos que visam manter intactas as condições da dominação. Entende-se que o resultado final permite constelar um pensamento crítico e dialético segundo os métodos de reflexão da própria autora.

    The relish of scientists for, and funding of research on, seagrasses probably stems from two sources: seagrasses are a defined taxonomic unit often growing in monotypic stands, making academic study tractable; and, seagrasses are increasingly recognized globally as important components of shallow water systems, and potential key indicators of ecosystem health. The 26 chapters covering ~700 pages provide a long overdue treatment of the state of the science on seagrasses. This book is an honest, thorough and heroic attempt to compile a mass of knowledge by a herd of 80 researcher “cats” representing 15 countries. The chapters “…provide the necessary background on what brought each topic where it is today and indicate where future research needs to go to advance the field to the next level.” Seagrass science is in its infancy, but, as demonstrated, is advancing rapidly. Volumes with recent topical treatments of seagrasses include World Atlas of Seagrasses (Green and Short 2003), Seagrass Ecology (Hemminga and Duarte 2000), and Global Seagrass Research Methods (Short and Coles 2001) are useful compliments to this book.

    Full Text Available Este artigo tem como objetivo trazer ao debate urbanístico a maneira como o médico sanitarista Geraldo Horácio de Paula Souza compreendeu e atuou na cidade de São Paulo, enquanto esteve à frente do Serviço Sanitário Estadual entre 1922 e 1927. Este médico adotou um enfoque diferente de seus antecessores para a higiene da cidade. Para ele, aquele não era mais o momento de construir grandes obras de saneamento para tornar o ambiente salubre, e sim o da conscientização dos indivíduos para adquirirem hábitos de higiene. Outro aspecto importante de Geraldo Paula Souza é a sua sintonia com os profissionais da engenharia que, como ele, no final da década de 20, percebiam a necessidade de transformar a cidade para o desenvolvimento vindouro com a industrialização nas décadas seguintes.

Oito geoambientes foram identificados e caracterizados: (1 Patamares com Espodossolos, 2 Cristas Ravinadas, 3 Escarpas, 4 Grotas, 5 Mata Baixa com Candeia, 6 Mata Alta sobre Xisto, 7 Topos Aplainados e 8 Rampas com Vegetação Aberta. Em cada ambiente a vegetação associada é fortemente condicionada pela profundidade do solo e pelo tempo de permanência de água no sistema. Os ambientes de mata, tanto sobre xistos quanto sobre quartzitos, sofrem menor estresse hídrico, seja por melhores condições físicas do solo e maior retenção de água, seja pela presença de ambiente mais ombrófilo e úmido, como nas Grotas. Os geoambientes florestados possuem concentrações de P e K mais elevadas do que nos ambientes campestres abertos. No geoambiente de Mata Baixa com Candeia, a pobreza química do substrato parece ser o impedimento à ocorrência de uma floresta mais densa. Os Campos de Altitude ocorrem nas altitudes mais elevadas no PEI, sendo desenvolvidos sobre solos mais profundos do que sob campos rupestres, onde há freqüente exposição da rocha ou solos muito rasos.

    Triatoma williami is naturally infected by Trypanosoma cruzi, the ethiological agent of Chagas disease, the most significant cause of morbidity and mortality in South and Central America.The possibility of domiciliation of T. williami increases the risk of human T. cruzi vetorial transmission. Despite this, there is a lack of data demonstrating the bionomic aspects, the vectorial competence or the natural ecotope and the wild hosts of T. williami. This study describes for the first time the life cycle of T. williami under the influence of two blood meal sources and also evaluates the vectorial potential of the species. The development of two groups of hundred triatomines was followed over the nymphal stages and adulthood. Each group was exposed to a sole blood meal source, mammalian or bird. The average egg-to-adult development time in both groups was similar, except by shorter stages of N3 and N4 in triatomines fed on mammals. The group fed on birds needed more blood feedings to suffer the ecdysis and had higher cumulative mortality in the nymphal stages. Although the observed delay at defecation of adults after feeding, our results suggest that T. williami in the third and fifth nymphal stages may be good vectors. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

    Full Text Available A broad variety of factors have been associated with leprosy among contacts, including socioeconomic, epidemiological, and genetic characteristics. Data from 7,174 contacts of leprosy patients from a leprosy outpatient clinic in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1987–2010, were analyzed to investigate the effects of kinship, individual, and contextual factors on leprosy. Multivariate analyses were performed using a robust estimation method. In the prevalence analysis, close kinship (sibling OR = 2.75, offspring OR = 2.00, and other relatives OR = 1.70, socioeconomic factors, and the duration of exposure to the bacillus were associated to leprosy. In the incidence analysis, significant risks were found for all categories of kinship (parents RR = 10.93, spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, and bride/groom RR = 7.53, sibling RR = 7.03, offspring RR = 5.34, and other relatives RR = 3.71. Once the treatment of the index case was initiated, other factors lost their significance, and the index case bacteriological index and BCG (Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccine protection had a greater impact. Our findings suggested that both genetic susceptibility and physical exposure play an important role in the epidemiology of leprosy, but it was not possible establishing the role of genetic factor. Analyses of other factors related to the genotype of individuals, such as genetic polymorphisms, are needed.

    Across the Earth, mangroves play an important role in coastal protection, both as nurseries and carbon sinks. However, due to various human and environmental impacts, the coverage of mangroves is declining on a global scale. The Red Sea is in the northern-most area of the distribution range of mangroves. Little is known about the surface covered by mangroves at this northern limit or about the changes experienced by Red Sea mangroves. We sought to study changes in the coverage of Red Sea mangroves by using multi-temporal Landsat data (1972, 2000 and 2013). Interestingly, our results show that there has been no decline in mangrove stands in the Red Sea but rather a slight increase. The area covered by mangroves is about 69 km**2 along the African shore and 51 km**2 along the Arabian Peninsula shore. From 1972 to 2013, the area covered by mangroves increased by about 0.29%/y. We conclude that the trend exhibited by Red Sea mangroves departs from the general global decline of mangroves. Along the Red Sea, mangroves expanded by 12% over the 41 years from 1972 to 2013. Losses to Red Sea mangroves, mostly due to coastal development, have been compensated by afforestation projects.

    Full Text Available The paper is part of a larger research that involved public educational institutions in Brazil, Colombia and Peru and aimed to learn how discrimination was perceived by all school community segments. The objective is to discuss how children from five to eight years old perceive ethnic-racial discrimination in the school environment. There are studies (such as GODOY, 1996; CAVALLEIRO, 1998; SILVA, 2002; DIAS, 2007; SOUZA e CROSO, 2007, OLIVEIRA e ABRAMOWICZ, 2010; DUARTE, 2011 that investigate the existence of discriminatory processes in children’s education; however, in general, children’s perspectives are not shown. Here, this is considered as the children’s right and as a possibility to broaden the knowledge on the theme, still little visible in educational contexts. In order to listen to the children, the analysis applied four strategies that value their competences and consider the power asymmetric relation between children and researchers. Either directly or indirectly, all groups of children expressed ethnic-racial discrimination. While some of them expressed their own discrimination towards classmates, others reported discriminatory situations in which they were the victims. They seemed to appropriate some prejudicial visions present in our society by identifying that black people own negative characteristics and belong to a minority. Therefore, it is not a surprise that black children have difficulty identifying themselves as such.

    Full Text Available The sporogony of Hepatozoon caimani has been studied, by light microscopy, in the mosquito Culex fatigans fed on specimens of the caiman Caiman c. crocodilus showing gametocytes in their peripheral blood. Sporonts iniciate development in the space between the epithelium of the insect gut and the elastic membrane covering the haemocoele surface of the stomach. Sporulating oocysts are clustered on the gut, still invested by the gut surface membrane. Fully mature oocysts were first seen 21 days after the blood-meal. No sporogonic stages were found in some unidentified leeches fed on an infected caiman, up to 30 days following the blood-meal. When mosquitoes containing mature oocysts were fed to frogs (Leptodactylus fuscus and Rana catesbeiana, cysts containing cystozoites developed in the internal organs, principally the liver. Feeding these frogs to farm-bred caimans resulted in the appearance of gametocytes in their peripheral blood at some time between 59 and 79 days later, and the development of tissue cysts in the liver, spleen, lungs and kidneys. Transmission of the parasite was also obtained by feeding young caimans with infected mosquitoes and it is suggested that both methods occur in nature. The finding of similar cysts containing cystozoites in the semi-aquatic lizard Neusticurus bicarinatus, experimentally fed with infected C. fatigans, suggests that other secondary hosts may be involved.

There are only a few viable options of psychosocial interventions that deal with this specific topic; one of them is psychoeducation, a model that, although it has been used by practitioners for some time, only recently have studies shown its efficacy in clinical practice.Aim: To assess if patients undergoing psychosocial intervention in addition to a pharmacological treatment have better regulation of their biological rhythm than those only using medication.Method: This study is a randomized clinical trial that compares a standard medication intervention to an intervention combined with drugs and psychoeducation. The evaluation of the biological rhythm was made using the Biological Rhythm Interview of Assessment in Neuropsychiatry, an 18-item scale divided in four areas (sleep, activity, social rhythm, and eating pattern. The combined intervention consisted of medication and a short-term psychoeducation model summarized in a protocol of six individual sessions of 1 hour each.Results: The sample consisted of 61 patients with bipolar II disorder, but during the study, there were 14 losses to follow-up. Therefore, the final sample consisted of 45 individuals (26 for standard intervention and 19 for combined. The results showed that, in this sample and time period evaluated, the combined treatment of medication and psychoeducation had no statistically significant impact on the

    In the course of this century, rising anthropogenic CO2 emissions will likely cause a decrease in ocean pH, know as ocean acidification, together with an increase of water temperature. Only in the last years, studies have focused on synergetic effects of both stressors on marine invertebrates, particularly on early life stages considered more vulnerable. Disparate responses of their singular and combined effects were reported, highlighting the importance of extending the studies to different species and populations of marine invertebrates. Here, we observed the response of important parameters such as growth, mortality and oxygen consumption of juvenile pen shell Pinna nobilis at supplied pCO2 gas levels of 400 ppm (ambient) and 1000 ppm and at three temperatures (20, 23 and 26 °C) during 36 days. To our knowledge, this is the first study on ocean acidification and temperature effects on juveniles of this species. We show that the two stressors play roles at distinct levels, with pCO2 influencing growth and partially mortality, and temperature increasing mortality rates and oxygen consumption strongly. Therefore, juveniles of P. nobilis are more likely affected by increasing temperature than the pCO2 levels expected by the end of the twenty-first century.

    Future ocean acidification (OA) will affect physiological traits of marine species, with calcifying species being particularly vulnerable. As OA entails high energy demands, particularly during the rapid juvenile growth phase, food supply may play a key role in the response of marine organisms to OA. We experimentally evaluated the role of food supply in modulating physiological responses and biomineralization processes in juveniles of the Chilean scallop, Argopecten purpuratus, that were exposed to control (pH 8.0) and low pH (pH 7.6) conditions using three food supply treatments (high, intermediate, and low). We found that pH and food levels had additive effects on the physiological response of the juvenile scallops. Metabolic rates, shell growth, net calcification, and ingestion rates increased significantly at low pH conditions, independent of food. These physiological responses increased significantly in organisms exposed to intermediate and high levels of food supply. Hence, food supply seems to play a major role modulating organismal response by providing the energetic means to bolster the physiological response of OA stress. On the contrary, the relative expression of chitin synthase, a functional molecule for biomineralization, increased significantly in scallops exposed to low food supply and low pH, which resulted in a thicker periostracum enriched with chitin polysaccharides. Under reduced food and low pH conditions, the adaptive organismal response was to trade-off growth for the expression of biomineralization molecules and altering of the organic composition of shell periostracum, suggesting that the future performance of these calcifiers will depend on the trajectories of both OA and food supply. Thus, incorporating a suite of traits and multiple stressors in future studies of the adaptive organismal response may provide key insights on OA impacts on marine calcifiers.

    The Arctic Ocean is warming at two to three times the global rate and is perceived to be a bellwether for ocean acidification. Increased CO2 concentrations are expected to have a fertilization effect on marine autotrophs, and higher temperatures should lead to increased rates of planktonic primary production. Yet, simultaneous assessment of warming and increased CO2 on primary production in the Arctic has not been conducted. Here we test the expectation that CO2-enhanced gross primary production (GPP) may be temperature dependent, using data from several oceanographic cruises and experiments from both spring and summer in the European sector of the Arctic Ocean. Results confirm that CO2 enhances GPP (by a factor of up to ten) over a range of 145-2,099?µatm; however, the greatest effects are observed only at lower temperatures and are constrained by nutrient and light availability to the spring period. The temperature dependence of CO2-enhanced primary production has significant implications for metabolic balance in a warmer, CO2-enriched Arctic Ocean in the future. In particular, it indicates that a twofold increase in primary production during the spring is likely in the Arctic.

  6. Desenho da rede de um projeto esportivo social: atores, representações e significados

    Full Text Available Este estudo é oferecido com o objetivo de explorar os sentidos e significados atribuídos pelos atores de uma rede que desenvolve um projeto esportivo social. O Projeto Boxe Vidigal (PBV tem suas atividades no morro do Vidigal, localizado na zona sul da cidade do Rio de Janeiro, ao lado do bairro do Leblon. A metodologia utilizada no estudo pautou-se pelos procedimentos da análise de redes e também da construção de categorias, com base na definição do núcleo e da periferia de representações sociais. Conclui-se que existe grande centralização das ações na pessoa do idealizador do projeto, por esta razão há baixa densidade e alta centralidade na rede. As percepções dos atores circulam pelas ideias de que o projeto "muda a vida das pessoas", que os jovens "tornam-se menos agressivos", que há "contribuição na formação social das crianças, jovens e das famílias" e que promove a "inclusão social de pessoas que vivem em comunidades pobres".

    In science, diversity is vital to the development of new knowledge.

If some diversity is good, more is better (especially in science).

    Social psychology is not a very politically diverse area of inquiry, something that could negatively affect the objectivity of social psychological theory and research, as Duarte et al. argue in the target article. This commentary offers a number of checks to help researchers uncover possible biases and identify when they are engaging in hypothesis confirmation and advocacy instead of hypothesis testing.

    Duarte et al. propose that divergent political biases cancel each other out such that increasing political diversity will improve scientific validity. We argue that this idea is misguided. Their recommendations for improving political diversity in academia bear the danger of imposing political interests on science. Scientific scrutiny and criticism are the only viable remedies for bad science.

Taking a closer look at evolutionary psychologists might offer the broader social psychology community guidance in neutralizing some of the biases Duarte et al. discuss.

Homens como Geraldo Horácio de Paula Souza e Borges Vieira utilizaram as ondas do rádio para popularizar práticas higiênicas e divulgar temas de interesse sanitário. Em 16 de abril de 1940 Paula Souza foi aos microfones da Rádio Educadora Paulista e, por meio de palestra, defendeu o valor nutritivo e a necessidade de consumo da laranja como ato patriótico. Divulgando as qualidades alimentícias da fruta, Paula Souza lançou a Campanha da Laranja. O sucesso extrapolou o estado de São Paulo, ganhando espaço na imprensa e sob a forma de folheto de propaganda do Serviço de Informação Agrícola, com o apoio incondicional do então ministro da Agricultura Fernando Costa.Since the early twentieth-century, sanitarians have relied on the radio for educational purposes. Men like Geraldo Horácio de Paula Souza and Borges Vieira used radio waves to popularize hygienic habits and disseminate information on sanitary topics. On April 16, 1940, Paula Souza stood before the microphones at Rádio Educadora Paulista and gave a lecture on the nutritional value of oranges and the need to eat them as a patriotic act. Touting the fruit's nutritional qualities, Paula Souza launched the 'orange campaign'. Its success reached beyond the borders of São Paulo state, as the campaign found space in the press and took form as an advertising brochure published by the Agricultural Information Service, with the unconditional support of the Minister of Agriculture, Fernando Costa.

    Full Text Available Expanding propositions of Souza Júnior (2015c, the present paper analyses the propagation patterns of media/linguistic practices, encapsulated in selfies, which the Brazilian Electoral Justice termed a ‘forbidden act’ – whenever selfies were to be taken inside voting booths and/or posted online from there, during the 2014 Brazilian elections. Suggesting a bottom-up Linguistics and social-semiotics-oriented analysis, seeking to expand the investigative limits of a pictorial and Communication-oriented analysis presented in Shifman (2014, the paper, firstly, examined the selfie post that originated the digital event #selfienaurna (i.e. selfie in the voting booth. Secondly, the article defined that post’s initial compositional pattern in terms of: a multimodal construction (its visual syntax; b multimodal proposition (the purpose the purpose expressed through that picture. Then, the methodology of “propagatory analysis” (SOUZA JÚNIOR, 2014 was used to confront the initial pattern with other occurrences found in the corpus. Carrying out a “relational analysis” (SOUZA JÚNIOR, 2015a, this study investigated how the pattern that generated #selfienaurna would evolve, namely: mostly homogeneously – positioning found in Dawkins (1979, 1982; and followed by Recuero (2006 – or heterogeneously - proposition presented in Dennett (1995; and corroborated in Souza Júnior (2014, 2015a. Results showed that the propagation of #selfienaurna evolved mostly heterogeneously, regarding the items investigated.

Hoje, assuntos como crime organizado, principalmente o relacionado ao contrabando de armas e ao tráfico de drogas, e atividades financeiras ilegais, tal como a lavagem de dinheiro, preocupam governos e representam um desafio para os serviços de inteligência de qualquer país. Indiscutivelmente, um eficaz serviço de inteligência, capaz de oferecer as informações necessárias, é o melhor meio para o combate a estas práticas. (VIDIGAL,2004, pp. 10-11

    Full Text Available As favelas do Rio de Janeiro têm sido alvo de intensa visitação turística desde os anos 2000. Se antes esse turismo se concentrava na Rocinha, paradigmática favela turística, hoje expande-se para outras favelas da cidade, e tal expansão vem acompanhada da ampliação do debate sobre esse tipo específico de turismo. Neste artigo, analiso três eventos de disputa em torno do tema “turismo em favelas”, ocorridos entre 2014 e 2015: a série de debates “Fala Vidigal!”; o I Congresso de Turismo de Base Comunitária da Rocinha; e o Grupo de Trabalho (GT sobre Turismo em Favelas na Câmara dos Vereadores do Rio de Janeiro. Os três eventos se apresentaram como interessantes cenários para observação participante e análise dos discursos sobre turismo em favela, tanto por parte da academia, como também por parte de empreendedores externos, empreendedores locais, moradores de favelas e órgãos públicos.

The purpose of this paper is to establish a phylogenetic basis for a new Eumaeini subtribe that includes those lycaenid genera in which detritivory has been recorded. Morphological characters were coded for 82 species of the previously proposed "Lamprospilus Section" of the Eumaeini (19 of these had coding identical to another species, and a phylogenetic analysis was performed using the 63 distinct ingroup terminal taxa and six outgroups belonging to four genera.

Management of severe tooth wear due to SB is a challenging situation because of the common reduced amount of remaining dental structure and loss of vertical dimension of occlusion. Rationale for the planning of oral rehabilitation of patients with SB presenting severe tooth wear should rely on evidence-based approaches; however, few studies have discussed properties of dental materials for SB rehabilitation and how to cosmetically manage severe tooth wear. This review aimed to provide an overview into bruxism cosmetic rehabilitation and how this can be implemented with good outcomes for the patient.

    This paper studies the electricity load demand behavior during the 2001 rationing period, which was implemented because of the Brazilian energy crisis. The hourly data refers to a utility situated in the southeast of the country. We use the model proposed by Soares and Souza [Soares, L.J. and Souza, L.R. (2006), 'Forecasting electricity demand using generalized long memory', International Journal of Forecasting, 22, 17-28.], making use of generalized long memory to model the seasonal behavior of the load. The rationing period is shown to have imposed a structural break in the series, decreasing the load at about 20%. Even so, the forecast accuracy is decreased only marginally, and the forecasts rapidly readapt to the new situation. The structural break, as well as the forecast errors from this model, also permits verifying the public response to pieces of information released regarding the crisis. (Author)

    Full Text Available This study presents the levels of physical vulnerability of coastal erosion segments, analyzed for 5 beaches of the coast of Ceará, in order to represent the reaction potential from the coast to the processes operating in the beach system and the effects of the use and occupation through a semi-quantitative approach. The levels of vulnerability and the processes of coastal erosion were established through integration of methodologies developed by Souza (1997; 2001, Souza (1999, Dominguez (1999, Souza & Suguio (2003, e Souza et al. (2005, also considering the particular characteristics of use and occupation, based on methodologies of Dal Cin & Simeoni (1994, Mallmann & Araújo (2010 and Projeto Orla (Brasil, 2006. Studies of this nature are important tools in the management processes and administration of coastal zones, allowing the indication of guidelines for a sustainable territorial development. It was possible to identify that coastal process and morphological factors, human interventions and attributes, as well as natural dynamics strongly influence the vulnerability of each beach. The results obtained show that areas which have very high vulnerability degree match the more urbanized cells and sectors, suggesting a more anthropic (man-made than natural control over the vulnerability. The index of the vulnerability degree to erosion, after the application of the methodologies, presented the same result for each bounded cell. However, these areas require specific and integrated studies, which would allow understanding the conditions and processes acting on the natural resources, in order to seek solutions to minimize the problems arising from the improper use and occupation, aiming to reach an environmental balance. The application of the results recorded can subsidize the elaboration of spatial planning of the beaches monitored, since in most of them the urbanization is accelerated and disordered.

    2015-01-01

    Duarte et al. draw attention to the "embedding of liberal values and methods" in social psychological research. They note how these biases are often invisible to the researchers themselves. The authors themselves fall prey to these "invisible biases" by utilizing the five-factor model of personality and the trait of openness to experience as one possible explanation for the under-representation of political conservatives in social psychology. I show that the manner in which the trait of openness to experience is conceptualized and measured is a particularly blatant example of the very liberal bias the authors decry.

    Full Text Available Due to the increasing concern of the organizations with the constant developments and changes in business processes, especially with regard to the quality of its products and services, it became necessary to conduct studies on ways of approaching clients and prospecting for new customers. This practice gained paramount importance to add value to the organization, and increasingly understand the needs of customers through relationship marketing. This study aims to investigate the perception of customers regarding relationship marketing tools used by the company Souza Cruz AS. Therefore, we present the main concepts involving relationship marketing process and customer loyalty. The methodology used was divided into two stages, the first being exploratory and qualitative literature and the second is descriptive and quantitative literature. The sample of 50 clients of Souza Cruz. The results show that customers consider important the relationship with the company, which is proven by the average search attributes in communication / attendance of employees (4.35 in degree of importance, and 4.58 in satisfaction. In the synthesis of overall satisfaction, the mean degree of satisfaction given by the research sample is 3.98. This percentage was considered good, as close to the item content (grade 4. This result may be related to the work of relationship the company Souza Cruz has been performing with his team which seeks to constantly enhance its customers to build strong and lasting relationships.

    Full Text Available Expanding our focus of study on the relationship between History and images, this article observes how images have been expressed political messages since the 2014 Brazilian presidential elections, when it is possible to observe the increase of dichotomous messages between "right” and “left". Given the importance of images for communication, this article analyzes this pictorial way of manifesting political discourse on social networks, specifically on Facebook, regarding the spread of such manifestations as a digital event disseminated on the Web. This study makes use of a Linguistics-oriented proposal of analysis (SOUZA JUNIOR, 2015a; 2015b; 2015c; 2015d. Accordingly, by examining two units of propagation (disseminated images, the article suggests the study of this type of message within the scope of the digital events identified as "Coxinha” and “Petralha". This investigation uses the Three-dimensional Model of Analysis (FAIRCLOUGH, 2003; SOUZA JUNIOR, 2013; 2015c as a methodology in association with the Integrative Approach (SOUZA JUNIOR, 2015a; 2015b.

The unit of analysis was the home district registered in the Sistema de Informação de Agravos de Notificação (Notifiable Diseases Information System of Rio de Janeiro, Southeastern Brazil. The rates were standardized by sex and age group, and smoothed by the empirical Bayes method. Spatial autocorrelation was evaluated by Moran’s I. Multiple linear regression models were studied and the appropriateness of incorporating the spatial component in modeling was evaluated.RESULTS We observed a higher risk of the disease in some neighborhoods of the port and north regions, as well as a high incidence in the slums of Rocinha and Vidigal, in the south region, and Cidade de Deus, in the west. The final model identified a positive association for the variables: percentage of permanent private households in which the head of the house earns three to five minimum wages; percentage of individual residents in the neighborhood; and percentage of people living in homes with more than two people per bedroom.CONCLUSIONS The spatial analysis identified areas of risk of tuberculosis incidence in the neighborhoods of the city of Rio de Janeiro and also found spatial dependence for the incidence of tuberculosis and some socioeconomic variables. However, the inclusion of the space component in the final model was not required during the modeling process.

    Full Text Available Este estudo investiga a aquisição da morfologia derivacional do português brasileiro (PB por crianças com diagnóstico preliminar de dislexia. A literatura tem sugerido uma dificuldade dos disléxicos em processar palavras morfologicamente complexas (CAPLAN, 1998, o que remete a um possível distúrbio no modo como palavras derivadas são representadas no léxico mental dos portadores de dislexia e por eles processadas. Outra explicação cabível seria a de que o disléxico apresenta problemas na passagem do reconhecimento da forma gráfica da palavra para a forma fônica correspondente. Em qualquer dos casos, essa dificuldade se reflete tanto nas habilidades de leitura quanto na aquisição das regras subjacentes aos processos derivacionais de formação de palavras em PB. A fim de prover mais evidências sobre essa questão, realizou-se um experimento, valendo-se da Técnica de Decisão Morfossemântica (BESSE; VIDIGAL DE PAULA; GOMBERT, 2005, numa adaptação da que foi usada por Mota (2008. Foram testadas 25 crianças sem queixa de dislexia, divididas em dois grupos etários, as quais serviram como controle, e 16 crianças com diagnóstico preliminar desse distúrbio, também divididas em dois grupos etários. Os resultados indicam que as crianças disléxicas que adquirem PB têm maior dificuldade em ler e processar as palavras morfologicamente complexas, em relação às crianças não disléxicas que adquirem essa mesma língua.

  8. Molecular screening in galactosemia

    1994-09-01

    Classical galactosemia (G/G) is caused by the absence of galactose-1-phosphate uridyl transferase (GALT) activity while the Duarte allele produces partial impairment and a specific biochemical phenotype. Cloning and sequencing of the human GALT gene has enabled the identification of prevalent mutations for both Classical and Duarte alleles. The G allele is caused by a Q188R codon mutation in exon 6 in 70% of a Caucasian population while the D allele is caused by an N134D codon mutation in exon 10. Since the Q188R sequence creates a new Hpa II site and the N314D sequence creates a new Sin I site, it is relatively easy to screen for both mutations by multiplex PCR and restriction digest. Here we describe a method for detection of new mutations producing impaired GALT. Patient DNAs are subjected to SSCP (single strand conformational polymorphism) analysis of their 11 GALT exons. Direct sequencing of the exons targeted by SSCP has revealed many codon changes: IVSC 956 (a splice acceptor site loss), S135L, V151A, E203K, A320T, and Y323D. Two of these codon changes, V151A and S135L, have been confirmed as mutations by finding impaired GALT activity in a yeast expression system. We conclude that molecular screening of GALT DNA will clarify the structural biology of GALT and the pathophysiology of galactosemia.

    α-cluster states in {sup 46}Cr and {sup 54}Cr are investigated in the double-folding model. This study complements a recent similar work by Souza and Miyake, Eur. Phys. J. A 53, 146 (2017), which was based on a specially shaped potential. Excitation energies, reduced widths, intercluster separations, and intra-band transition strengths are calculated and compared to experimental values for the ground state bands in {sup 46}Cr and {sup 54}Cr. The α-cluster potential is also applied to elastic scattering at low and intermediate energies. Here, as a byproduct, a larger radial extent of the neutron density in {sup 50}Ti is found. (orig.)

    Full Text Available O objetivo neste trabalho foi obter as curvas de congelamento do feijão, cultivar 'gordo', nas temperaturas de -25, -50, -170 e -196 ºC e determinar sua difusividade térmica efetiva. Com vista à obtenção das curvas de congelamento das sementes nas temperaturas de -25 e -50 ºC utilizou-se um freezer criogênico horizontal; para a temperatura de -170 ºC, o vapor de nitrogênio e, para a temperatura de -196 ºC, as sementes foram submersas no nitrogênio líquido. Afim de expressar o comportamento cinético do congelamento das sementes de feijão, foi usado o modelo de Fourier levando-se em consideração o primeiro termo da série, além dos Modelos I e II de Cavalcanti-Mata & Duarte. Os resultados obtidos indicam que os três modelos representam satisfatoriamente os dados experimentais da cinética de congelamento; apesar disto, com o Modelo II de Cavalcanti-Mata & Duarte se obtém o maior coeficiente de determinação. Constata-se também que, para congelar as sementes de feijão até atingir o equilíbrio térmico na temperatura de -25 ºC, o tempo necessário foi de 1200 min; em temperatura de -50 ºC o equilíbrio foi atingido com 480 min; a -170 ºC o equilíbrio se deu em 180 min e, a -196 ºC, em 30 min.The objective of this study was to obtain the freezing curves of beans, variety 'gordo' at temperatures of -25, -50, -170 and -196 ºC, and determine their effective thermal diffusivity. For the curves of freezing beans seeds at temperatures of -25 and -50 ºC a cryogenic horizontal freezer was used, for temperature of -170 ºC, nitrogen vapor was used and at temperature of -196 ºC seeds were submerged in liquid nitrogen. To express the kinetic behavior of the freezing of bean seeds, the Fourier model was used taking into account the first term of the series and; Cavalcanti-Mata & Duarte model I and II. The results indicate that the three models satisfactorily represent the experimental data of the kinetics of freezing, though with

  7. On the history of political diversity in social psychology.

    Binning, Kevin R; Sears, David O

    2015-01-01

    We argue that the history of political diversity in social psychology may be better characterized by stability than by a large shift toward liberalism. The branch of social psychology that focuses on political issues has defined social problems from a liberal perspective since at least the 1930s. Although a lack of ideological diversity within the discipline can pose many of the problems noted by Duarte et al., we suggest that these problems (a) are less apparent when the insights of social psychology are pitted against the insights from other social science disciplines, and (b) are less pressing than the need for other types of diversity in the field, especially ethnic and racial diversity.

    Full Text Available In this paper, I discuss the contemporary scenario of higher education and examine the historical circumstances that have contributed to organising it the way it is today, i.e., characterised by the world domination of virtual capital and by the discourse of abstract individualisation. In order to pursue this task, I make use of ideas from Kurz, Lukács, Duarte and Moraes that, in the light of historical materialism, provide a substantial theoretical and methodological basis for understanding such reality, its history and complex relations, according to an ontological perspective. Following this view, I try both to investigate the effects of researchers and professors from the Education field joining the spirit of the epoch and to suggest ways to counteract this spirit by using criticism, aiming to make plain that presently knowledge is a commodity within the society of virtual capitalism and postmodern individualisation.

    2016-07-01

    This article presents the results of the study on sedimentation, sedimentary environments, tectono-sedimentary and paleogeographic evolution of post-Laramide clastic deposits and pre-volcanism of the Sierra Madre Occidental in the Sierra de Guanajuato, central Mexico. The Eocene Duarte Conglomerate and Guanajuato Conglomerate were deposited in the middle and distal parts of alluvial fans. The studied rocks are composed of limestone clasts, granite, andesite, metasediments, diorite, and pyroxenite, indicating the erosion of uplifted blocks of the basal complex of the Sierra de Guanajuato (Arperos basin). The petrographic and compositional analysis of limestone shows a textural variation from basin limestones and shallow platform limestones. The shallow platform limestone contain bivalves, brachiopods, gastropods, echinoderms and benthic foraminifera from the Berriasian-Valanginian. The shallow-water limestone corresponds to the boundary of the Arperos basin whose original outcrops currently not outcrop in the Sierra de Guanajuato. (Author)

    The southern Brasília Orogen is organized in a pile of nappes that records the Neoproterozoic history of the subduction and collision between passive and active margins, respectively belonging to the São Francisco and Paranapanema Plates. The whole pile of allochthons comprises the rootless Andrelândia Nappe System (the upper kyanite-bearing granulite of Três Pontas-Varginha Nappe, the intermediate high-pressure amphibolite-to eclogite facies of Liberdade Nappe and the lower Andrelândia Nappe) that is located below an Andean-type magmatic arc (Socorro-Guaxupé Nappe) and overrides the Lima Duarte Nappe and the Carrancas Nappe System. The tectonic units of the Andrelândia Nappe System seem to be exotic to the São Francisco Plate. The retroeclogite of the Liberdade Nappe yielded a 670 Ma SHRIMP U-Pb age in zircon, that is interpreted as the age of N-MORB-type basic magmatism. Detrital zircon grains of proximal flysh deposits of wackes in the Andrelândia Nappe present similar ages that reflect the crystallization in its source area. Both, rocks present Nd isotopic juvenile signatures with T DM in the range of 1.4 to 1.1 Ga. Rhyacian orthogneisses occur as slices in the Liberdade Nappe and have Nd isotope signature of juvenile source. The building of the collision pile of the whole system of nappes was diachronic and records a continuous outward migration of the orogen. The main structure is a middle crust-level duplex. The propagation of the structure and the metamorphism advanced progressively from the upper to the lower nappes, as is shown by U-Pb monazite ages in the range of 618-595 Ma for the Andrelândia Nappe System and 590-575 Ma for the Carrancas and Lima Duarte nappes.

  15. Implementation of public policy on alcohol and other drugs in Brazilian municipalities: comparative studies.

    Mota, Daniela Belchior; Ronzani, Telmo Mota

    2016-07-01

    One of the challenges with respect to public health and the abuse of alcohol and other drugs is to implement policies in support of greater co-ordination among various levels of government. In Brazil, policies are formulated by the Secretaria Nacional de Políticas sobre Drogas (SENAD - State Department for Policies on Drugs) and the Ministério da Saúde (MS - Ministry of Health). This study aims to compare implementation of policies adopted by SENAD and MS at the municipal level. Three municipalities were intentionally selected: Juiz de Fora having a larger network of treatment services for alcohol and drug users; Lima Duarte, a small municipality, which promotes the political participation of local actors (COMAD - Municipal Council on Alcohol and Drugs); and São João Nepomuceno, also a small municipality, chosen because it has neither public services specialised to assist alcohol and other drugs users, nor COMAD. Data collection was conducted through interviews with key informants (n = 19) and a review of key documents concerned with municipal policies. Data analysis was performed using content analysis. In Juiz de Fora, there are obstacles regarding the integration of the service network for alcohol and other drug users and also the articulation of local actors, who are predominant in the mental health sector. In Lima Duarte, while there is a link between local actors through COMAD, their actions within the local service network have not been effective. In São João Nepomuceno, there were no public actions in the area of alcohol and drugs, and consequently insufficient local debate. However, some voluntary, non-governmental work has been undertaken. There were weaknesses in the implementation of national-level policies by SENAD and the MS, due to the limited supply of available treatment, assistance and the lack of integration among local actors. © 2015 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    A special kind of neural network referred to as a Self-Organizing Map (SOM) was previously adopted to identify, in pitch angle-resolved relativistic electron flux data provided by the REPT instrument onboard the Van Allen Probes, three major types of electron pitch angle distributions (PADs), namely 90o-peaked, butterfly and flattop (Souza et al., 2016), following the classification scheme employed by Gannon et al. (2007). Previous studies show that butterfly distribution can be found in more than one shape. They usually exhibit an intense decrease near 90° pitch angles compared to the peaks usually around 30° and 150°. Sometimes unusual butterfly PAD shapes with peaks near 45° and 135° pitch angles can be observed. These could be correlated with different physical processes that govern the production and loss of energetic particles in the Van Allen radiation belt. A neural network approach allows the distinction of different kinds of butterfly PADs which were not analyzed in detail by Souza et al. (2016). This study uses SOM methodology to find these unusual butterfly PAD shape during the interval between January 1, 2014 and October 1, 2015, during which Van Allen Probes orbit covered all MLT. The spatial and temporal occurrence of these events were investigated as well as their solar wind and magnetospheric drivers.

    Full Text Available The team of Ferrara editors was headed by two former New Christians: an entrepreneur, a native of Spain, and a Latin scholar from Portugal who in the introductions to variant editions of their scriptural production alternately call themselves by their Christian names Jeronimo de Vargas and Duarte Pinel, and by their Jewish names Yom Tob Atias and Abraham Usque. This “editorial schizophrenia” is reflected in the Italian archives. Whereas the historian Renata Segre’s researches have documented that Duarte Pinel and Abraham Usque were one and the same person, she was unable to find archival proof uniting Jeronimo de Vargas and Yom Tob Atias. The researcher Aron Leoni came up with a Latin notarial deed in the Ferrara archives wherein “Joantu Athias” is called “ptrem ac legitimum administratorum Hieronimi Vargas” and also the latter’s “patre et legitimo administrator.” He supposed “ptrem” to be an abbreviation of “procuratorem” and “patre” to mean father. Thus he concluded that Yom Tob Atias was the father of Jeronimo de Vargas. Close examination of the document and comparison with two others which have recently come to light reveal, however, the incontrovertible identity of Yom Tob Atias and Jeronimo de Vargas. We are dealing with a typical case of ex-Marrano heteronomy: a former New Christian maintaining a separate onomastic Christian identity alongside his Jewish one.

    This article contains data related to the researc.h article entitled "Yeast-derived ArtinM shares structure, carbohydrate recognition, and biological effects with native ArtinM" by Cecílio et al. (2015) [1]. ArtinM, a D-mannose-binding lectin isolated from the seeds of Artocarpus heterophyllus, exerts immunomodulatory and regenerative activities through its Carbohydrate Recognition Domain (CRD) (Souza et al., 2013; Mariano et al., 2014 [2], [3]). The limited availability of the native lectin (n-ArtinM) led us to characterize a recombinant form of the protein, obtained by expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (y-ArtinM). We compared the carbohydrate-binding specificities of y-ArtinM and n-ArtinM by analyzing the binding of biotinylated preparations of the two lectin forms using a neoglycolipid (NGL)-based glycan microarray. Data showed that y-ArtinM mirrored the specificity exhibited by n-ArtinM.

  11. A novel numerical model for estimating the collapse pressure of flexible pipes

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Nogueira, Victor P.P.; Antoun Netto, Theodoro [Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (COPPE/UFRJ), RJ (Brazil). Coordenacao dos Programas de Pos-graduacao em Engenharia], e-mail: victor@lts.coppe.ufrj.br

    As the worldwide oil and gas industry operational environments move to ultra-deep waters, failure mechanisms in flexible pipes such as instability of the armor layers under compression and hydrostatic collapse are more likely to occur. Therefore, it is important to develop reliable numerical tools to reproduce the failure mechanisms that may occur in flexible pipes. This work presents a representative finite element model of flexible pipe capable to reproduce its pre and post-collapse behavior under hydrostatic pressure. The model, developed in the scope of this work, uses beam elements and includes nonlinear kinematics and material behavior influences. The dependability of the numerical results is assessed in light of experimental tests on flexible pipes with 4 inches and 8 inches nominal diameter available in the literature (Souza, 2002). The applied methodology provided coherent values regarding the estimation of the collapse pressures and results have shown that the proposed model is capable to reproduce experimental results.

    Full Text Available This study aims to analyze the different types of arguments, considering them central parts of argumentative processes, in opinion articles of the Portuguese Language Olympiad written on the topic “Where I live.” To analyze the arguments in the selected articles we adopted the assumptions of the New Rhetoric (PERELMAN; OLBRECHTS-TYTECA, 2005, associated with the studies of Bakhtin (2003, 2010 and of Souza (2003, 2008, 2009, among others. We selected five articles awarded in different competitions (2008, 2010, 2012, which are in public domain, available on the official site of the Olympics. Most of the articles have their theses made by the arguments that support the actual structure, highlighting the relations of cause/effect and fact/consequence. Based on the established connection between the facts, speakers/ writers seek to understand these relationships and at the same time, explain and justify arguments and controversies involving issues related to their experience in the community.

  15. Comment on ‘A scattering quantum circuit for measuring Bell's time inequality: a nuclear magnetic resonance demonstration using maximally mixed states’

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Knee, G C; Briggs, G A D; Benjamin, S C; Gauger, E M

    2012-01-01

    A recent paper by Souza, Oliveira and Sarthour (SOS) reports the experimental violation of a Leggett-Garg (LG) inequality (sometimes referred to as a temporal Bell inequality). The inequality tests for quantum mechanical superposition: if the inequality is violated, the dynamics cannot be explained by a large class of classical theories under the heading of macrorealism. Experimental tests of the LG inequality are beset by the difficulty of carrying out the necessary so-called ‘non-invasive’ measurements (which for the macrorealist will extract information from a system of interest without disturbing it). SOS argue that they nevertheless achieve this difficult goal by putting the system in a maximally mixed state. The system then allegedly undergoes no perturbation during their experiment. Unfortunately, the method is ultimately unconvincing to a skeptical macrorealist and so the conclusions drawn by SOS are unjustified. (comment)

Referring to hearing music and literary reading, the teaching aims to understand students as individuals represented by a strong dialogic ethical and aesthetic reception. In that current context historical of globalization and multise- miotic informations it is believed that, in the measure in the individual-student notices the due relation / integration of those levels, the contact with the implicit musicality in the verses of poems will make possible that she is apprehended bet- ter until as contemporary melopoetic element. With such concern, and leaning on in analyses of Mikhail Bakhtin, Octavio Paz, José Miguel Wisnik, Luiz Tatit e Jusamara Souza, the theoretical foundations of the didatic process consider, basi- cally, a conception dialogical and interactionist of that of those artistics language.

    Full Text Available In the realm of Brazilian sociology two readings of Weber’s works have been historically prevalent, and each one had different repercussions on the diagnosis of the consolidation of modernity in Brazil. The first one, relying on Weber’s political sociology and his sociology of domination, has as its central authors Sergio Buarque de Holanda and Raymundo Faoro. The second one, more recent one, stresses Weber’s historical-comparative sociology of religions and is represented, among others, by authors such as Jessé Souza and Antonio Flávio Pierucci. The article describes these different readings of Weber and shows how different interpretations of the Brazilian reality are derived from them.

Front to this objective, we will deal with the globalization as a movement preceded for the mundialization processes and internationalization that generates many transformations in the society, that is, an interlaced movement to a series of resolutions that intervene with the tourism. With the objective to direct the analysis to the specific field of study, it will be presented, from the perspective of Boaventura de Souza Santos, some of the influences in the tourist activity, having understood them as necessary points in order to the planners and administrators of the tourism understand it and motivate it without limiting themselves to the ways proposed by the consensus that exists in the idea of globalization.

    Since the discovery of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in 1991 by Iijima, carbon and other nanotubes have attracted considerable interest worldwide because of their unusual properties and also great potentials for technological applications. Though CNTs continue to attract great interest, other nanotubes such as BN nanotubes (BN-NTs) may offer different opportunities that CNTs cannot provide. In this contribution, we present the results of our recent systematic ab initio calculations of the static dielectric constant, electric polarizability, Born dynamical charge, electrostriction coefficient and piezoelectric constant of BN-NTs using the latest crystalline finite electric field theory [1].

Tais ações são evidenciadas em Relatórios da Administração (RA por se caracterizarem como instrumentos de comunicação social. Desse modo, o presente artigo almeja identificar como a empresa líder do setor tabagista, a Souza Cruz S/A, utilizou os conteúdos dos RAs como instrumento de estratégia retórica de legitimação, no período de 1986 a 2012. O Institucionalismo Organizacional foi utilizado como referencial teórico, e a metodologia para tratamento dos dados foi a análise de conteúdo. Evidenciou-se que a Souza Cruz S/A empreendeu esforços para manter sua legitimidade no período analisado, intensificando o uso de apelos retóricos (ethos, pathos e logos em defesa dos argumentos: (a fumar é uma escolha racional adulta; (b a legislação favorece o comércio ilegal de cigarros; e (c as atividades da empresa beneficiam a sociedade. Assim, este trabalho destaca os RAs como fonte de análise em estudos organizacionais, evidencia a retórica como possibilidade estratégica e propícia aos gestores reflexões acerca da influência do ambiente nas estratégias organizacionais.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo objetiva demonstrar o alcance das "pedagogias do aprender a aprender" (DUARTE, 2001, uma vez que elas fundamentam as propostas educacionais no âmbito nacional e no internacional, na atualidade; bem como apresentar suas principais premissas, que mantêm sua filiação ao pragmatismo e ao irracionalismo e, no limite, submetem o desenvolvimento humano à ordem do capital. Tais proposições se contrapõem ao objetivo humanizador da educação escolar pressuposto na produção teórica do psicólogo soviético Alexis Leontiev. Como resultados, temos que, dessas produções, é possível extrair subsídios para o enfrentamento do processo de esvaziamento do ensino escolar e do papel do professor engendrado pelas referidas pedagogias. Além disso, pretendese evidenciar a impossibilidade de aproximações entre as produções da psicologia histórico-cultural com outras correntes pedagógicas que estão a serviço da legitimação e do revigoramento da sociedade capitalista.This article aims to demonstrate the extent of the "pedagogies of learning to learn" (DUARTE, 2001, since they support the current educational proposals nationally and internationally, and also present their main assumptions, which keep their membership to pragmatism and irrationalism, and in the limit, submit human development to the order of the capital. These propositions go against the goal of humanizing education's assumption in the theoretical production of the Soviet psychologist Alexis Leontiev. As a result, we concluded that, from these productions it is possible to extract subsidies to face the process of empting the school education and the teacher's role engendered by these pedagogies. Moreover, it is intended to highlight the impossibility of the approaches between historical-cultural psychology productions with other pedagogical currents aimed at the legitimacy and the reinvigoration of the capitalist society.

    Full Text Available In this article, we analyze the relation among educational reforms and teachers’ work, and emotions. This study was conducted with a public school English teacher, in Minas Gerais. The aim was to verify the role that contextual factors play in the production of emotions, and detect the emotions that influence her practice with students, colleagues, and school managers. The theoretical framework was based on studies about educational reforms and teachers’ work (AUGUSTO, 2005; HYPOLITO; VIEIRA; PIZZI, 2009; DUARTE; AUGUSTO, [s.d.], the relationship between emotions and the process of teaching and learning languages (HARGREAVES, 2000; ZEMBYLAS, 2002, 2003; ARAGÃO, 2008; DAY; QING, 2009; SHUTZ; ZEMBYLAS, 2009; COWIE, 2011; RIBEIRO, 2012. We used a semistructured questionnaire and a narrative interview as data collection instruments. The analysis has pointed out poor work condition, crowded classrooms, poor physical and technological structures, strict school curriculum, students’ indiscipline, and the institution pessimistic atmosphere as frustrating, stressful, and de-motivating factors. These results indicate the need to create alternative ways of school workplaces organization, and to modify the way people interact in schools. They also suggest the need of educators to participate in the design and implementation of educational reforms.

    Full Text Available Gleison Duarte,1 Luan Oliveira Barbosa,2 Maria Elisa A Rosa11Dermatology Division, Alergodermoclin, Salvador, Bahia, Brazil; 2Escola Bahiana de Medicina e Saúde Pública Salvador, Bahia, BrazilAbstract: Diet is an important factor in the management of several dermatological diseases, such as dermatitis herpetiformis, acne vulgaris, gout, phrynoderma, pellagra, psoriasis, and acrodermatitis enteropathica. New concepts have emerged concerning the influence of diet on psoriasis. For example, diet has an adjuvant role in the management of several cardiovascular comorbidities that exhibit a higher-than-expected prevalence in psoriatic patients. Functional foods, such as yellow saffron and fish oil, may exert favorable effects on immune and cardiovascular functions. A gluten-free diet may promote significant clinical and histologic improvement. Folate supplementation may induce clinical improvement of psoriasis, but side effects may also occur. Diets rich in fresh fruits and vegetables are associated with a lower prevalence of psoriasis, and vegetarian diets were associated with clinical improvement. Additionally, many drug-diet interactions (retinoids, methotrexate, cyclosporine must be considered in patients with psoriasis. Therefore, in addition to current nutritional advice given to psoriasis patients, further studies are necessary in the role of diet in psoriasis therapy.Keywords: diet, lifestyle, psoriasis, recommendations, supplementation

    The palette of some of the most representative Brazilian painters from the XIX century was characterized using EDXRF technique. In this work were analyzed paintings of: Eliseu Visconti, Almeida Junior, Rodolfo Amoedo, Henrique Bernardelli, Rafael Frederico, Modesto Brocos, Augusto Rodrigues Duarte and Pedro Peres - all of them belonging to the National Museum of Fine Arts Collection. EDXRF measurements were carried out with a portable system developed by the Nuclear Instrumentation Laboratory, consisting of an X-ray tube Oxford TF3005 with tungsten (W) anode, operating at 25 kV and 100 μA, and a Si-PIN XR-100CR detector from Amptek. In each color and distinct hue of the paint layer were obtained several spectra, with an acquisition time of 300 s and a beam collimation of 2 mm. The spectra were processed and analyzed using the software QXAS-AXIL from IAEA. Some pigments used by the artists were: zinc white, lead white, ochre, umbra, vermilion, Prussian blue, cobalt blue, cadmium yellow, black iron oxide, manganese violet, etc. These results - together with the Computed Radiography analyses - have been used to create a database about the XIX century collection of the National Museum of Fine Arts, in order to assist restorators, conservators, art students and researchers in the field of archaeometry

    Classical or transferase-deficient galactosaemia is an inherited metabolic disorder caused by mutation in the human Galactose-1-phosphate uridyl transferase (GALT) gene. Of some 170 causative mutations reported, fewer than 10% are observed in more than one geographic region or ethnic group. To better understand the population history of the common GALT mutations, we have established a haplotyping system for the GALT locus incorporating eight single nucleotide polymorphisms and three short tandem repeat markers. We analysed haplotypes associated with the three most frequent GALT gene mutations, Q188R, K285N and Duarte-2 (D2), and estimated their age. Haplotype diversity, in conjunction with measures of genetic diversity and of linkage disequilibrium, indicated that Q188R and K285N are European mutations. The Q188R mutation arose in central Europe within the last 20 000 years, with its observed east-west cline of increasing relative allele frequency possibly being due to population expansion during the re-colonization of Europe by Homo sapiens in the Mesolithic age. K285N was found to be a younger mutation that originated in Eastern Europe and is probably more geographically restricted as it arose after all major European population expansions. The D2 variant was found to be an ancient mutation that originated before the expansion of Homo sapiens out of Africa.

    The pediatric dental approach to the oral cavity of newborns requires special attention, as many aspects are unique and peculiar to this period of life. It is important that pediatricians and pediatric dentists be aware of the characteristics within normal newborn patterns and prepared to make a correct diagnosis of abnormalities at early stages. Congenital eruption cysts (ECs) are rarely observed in newborns, as at this stage of a child's life, tooth eruption is unusual. This study reports a case of EC treated successfully by monitoring of the lesion, without any surgical procedure. In the 4th month, the lesion had completely regressed, and the deciduous central incisors had erupted without problems. The clinical and radiographic monitoring of ECs in newborns seems to be a satisfactory management procedure, similar to what is recommended for older children.

It is a common condition in dogs, however, rarely described in large animals. It can be caused by trauma and spinal cord compression conditions. The aim of this study was to describe the case of a two-year-old male horse with Schiff-Sherrington syndrome. The animal was sent with signs of paresis and ataxia of the hind limbs, and during the necropsy, multiple fractures were observed in the 1st and 2nd lumbar vertebrae and spinal cord compression.

  4. Rapid patterning of 'tunable' hydrophobic valves on disposable microchips by laser printer lithography.

    We recently defined a method for fabricating multilayer microdevices using poly(ethylene terephthalate) transparency film and printer toner, and showed these could be successfully applied to DNA extraction and amplification (Duarte et al., Anal. Chem. 2011, 83, 5182-5189). Here, we advance the functionality of these microdevices with flow control enabled by hydrophobic valves patterned using laser printer lithography. Laser printer patterning of toner within the microchannel induces a dramatic change in surface hydrophobicity (change in contact angle of DI water from 51° to 111°) with good reproducibility. Moreover, the hydrophobicity of the surface can be controlled by altering the density of the patterned toner via varying the gray-scale setting on the laser printer, which consequently tunes the valve's burst pressure. Toner density provided a larger burst pressure bandwidth (158 ± 18 Pa to 573 ± 16 Pa) than could be achieved by varying channel geometry (492 ± 18 Pa to 573 ± 16 Pa). Finally, we used a series of tuned toner valves (with varied gray-scale) for passive valve-based fluidic transfer in a predictable manner through the architecture of a rotating PeT microdevice. While an elementary demonstration, this presents the possibility for simplistic and cost-effective microdevices with valved fluid flow control to be fabricated using nothing more than a laser printer, a laser cutter and a laminator.

    Classical or transferase-deficient galactosaemia is an inherited metabolic disorder caused by mutation in the human Galactose-1-phosphate uridyl transferase (GALT) gene. Of some 170 causative mutations reported, fewer than 10% are observed in more than one geographic region or ethnic group. To better understand the population history of the common GALT mutations, we have established a haplotyping system for the GALT locus incorporating eight single nucleotide polymorphisms and three short tandem repeat markers. We analysed haplotypes associated with the three most frequent GALT gene mutations, Q188R, K285N and Duarte-2 (D2), and estimated their age. Haplotype diversity, in conjunction with measures of genetic diversity and of linkage disequilibrium, indicated that Q188R and K285N are European mutations. The Q188R mutation arose in central Europe within the last 20 000 years, with its observed east-west cline of increasing relative allele frequency possibly being due to population expansion during the re-colonization of Europe by Homo sapiens in the Mesolithic age. K285N was found to be a younger mutation that originated in Eastern Europe and is probably more geographically restricted as it arose after all major European population expansions. The D2 variant was found to be an ancient mutation that originated before the expansion of Homo sapiens out of Africa.

    Within the heterogeneous group of cutaneous T‑cell lymphomas (CTCL) the therapeutic options for advanced and progressive forms are particularly limited. The therapeutic value of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in CTCL was analyzed. A literature search using the keywords "hematopoietic stem cell transplantation" and "cutaneous T‑cell lymphoma" was performed in PubMed. Studies between 1990 and 2017 were taken into account. The studies identified were analyzed for relevance and being up to date. After reviewing the currently available literature no prospective randomized studies were found. Wu et al. showed a superiority of allogeneic transplantation in a comparison of autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation for cutaneous lymphoma. The graft-versus-lymphoma effect plays a significant role in a prolonged progression-free survival after allogeneic transplantation. By using a non-myeloablative conditioning regimen, stem cell transplantation can also be an option for elderly patients. The most extensive long-term data after allogeneic stem cell transplantation were reported by Duarte et al. in 2014. Autologous stem cell transplantation does not currently represent a therapeutic option, whereas allogeneic stem cell transplantation for advanced cutaneous T‑cell lymphoma, using a non-myeloablative conditioning scheme, does represent a therapeutic option. However, there is no consensus on the appropriate patients and the right timing. Morbidity and mortality of complications should be taken into account. Thus, this procedure is currently subject to an individual case decision.

Oncogenes and tumor suppressors are relevant not only in tumor biology, but also in physiological developmental regulators of growth and differentiation. Conversely, genes identified as regulators of developmental biology are relevant to tumor biology. This is particularly relevant in the context of brain tumors, where recent evidence is mounting that the origin of brain tumors, specifically gliomas, may represent dysfunctional developmental neurobiology. Neural stem cells are increasingly being investigated as the cell type that originally undergoes malignant transformation – the cell of origin – and the evidence for this is discussed.Keywords: stem cells, gliomas, neural stem cells, brain tumors, cancer stem cells

    Full Text Available Several studies have demonstrated how physical activity in older people benefits their physical fitness, health and well-being. The relation between physical activity and perceived functional capacity and health is yet to be considered. This study is a quantitative research design that investigated the improvement of the physical-functional fitness and the perception of the functional capacity and health of an elderly group participating in a waterbased exercise program (hydrotherapy. The data was collected in three different moments of the exercise program through a battery of tests of physical-functional fitness established by Batista and Sardinha (2005 and a questionnaire adapted from SABE project (Lebrão and Duarte, 2003. Twenty-six elderly persons (23 women and 3 men aged between 60 and 84 years old participated in a 31-week hydrotherapy program (twice a week; 45 minutes by session. Friedman test was used for assessing statistical differences between the physical-functional fitness and the questionnaire responses in each of the three evaluation moments. Results revealed that this program was enough to improve the physical-functional fitness of the elderly, as well as the perception they had about their health and ability to perform activities of daily living.

The prevalence of psoriasis varies among different ethnic groups, but this topic has not been studied in Brazil to date. In this review, we evaluate the epidemiology and treatment of psoriasis from a Brazilian perspective. We focused on studies that involved Brazilian subjects. The prevalence of psoriasis in Brazil is estimated to be 2.5%, but no population study has been performed previously. Environmental factors, such as tropical climate, in association with genetic factors, such as miscegenation, may exert a beneficial impact on the course and frequency of psoriasis in Brazil. A number of studies have advanced our understanding of the cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and oral comorbidities that are associated with psoriasis. Concerns about biological therapy, such as endemic leprosy, human T-cell lymphotropic virus (HTLV, and tuberculosis infections, are discussed. The nonavailability of treatment options for psoriasis in the public health system contradicts the Brazilian Society of Dermatology guidelines, stimulating the judicialization of access to medicines in psoriasis care.

    Full Text Available We evaluated density and species composition of the soil seed bank in active pasture and in secondary forest on a 10 year-old abandoned pasture to identify changes in density, richness, diversity and species composition during secondary succession of abandoned pastures. The implications of those changes for the forest recovery process were also considered. Soil samples were collected at Porto Rico island, state of Paraná, in 2007. The seedling emergence method was used. Data on active pasture collected in 1996, published by Campos and Souza (2003 were used for comparative analysis. No evidence was found of a pattern of changes in density of the soil seed bank during succession of abandoned pastures. We observed increases in richness and diversity, in the contribution of tree and shrub species and dominance of herb species for the seed bank during the first 10 years of abandonment of pastures in riparian forests. At the end of succession, the soil used as pasture can result in systems that are different from the original environment, due to seed bank impoverishment and presence of exotic species.We evaluated density and species composition of the soil seed bank in active pasture and in secondary forest on a 10 year-old abandoned pasture to identify changes in density, richness, diversity and species composition during secondary succession of abandoned pastures.

    The objective of this study was to test the validity of the pragmatic criteria of the definitions of neonatal near miss, extending them throughout the infant period, and to estimate the indicators of perinatal care in public maternity hospitals. A cohort of live births from six maternity hospitals in the municipalities of São Paulo, Niterói, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was carried out in 2011. We carried out interviews and checked prenatal cards and medical records. We compared the pragmatic criteria (birth weight, gestational age, and 5' Apgar score) of the definitions of near miss of Pileggi et al., Pileggi-Castro et al., Souza et al., and Silva et al. We calculated sensitivity, specificity (gold standard: infant mortality), percentage of deaths among newborns with life-threatening conditions, and rates of near miss, mortality, and severe outcomes per 1,000 live births. A total 7,315 newborns were analyzed (completeness of information > 99%). The sensitivity of the definition of Pileggi-Castro et al. was higher, resulting in a higher number of cases of near miss, Souza et al. presented lower value, and Pileggi et al. and de Silva et al. presented intermediate values. There is an increase in sensitivity when the period goes from 0-6 to 0-27 days, and there is a decrease when it goes to 0-364 days. Specificities were high (≥ 97%) and above sensitivities (54% to 77%). One maternity hospital in São Paulo and one in Niterói presented, respectively, the lowest and highest rates of infant mortality, near miss, and frequency of births with life-threatening conditions, regardless of the definition. The definitions of near miss based exclusively on pragmatic criteria are valid and can be used for monitoring purposes. Based on the perinatal literature, the cutoff points adopted by Silva et al. were more appropriate. Periodic studies could apply a more complete definition, incorporating clinical, laboratory, and management criteria, including congenital anomalies

Regina Maria de Souza, na Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP. A partir da observação de duas classes do primeiro ano do Ensino Médio, notamos a diferença - que fabricaram para si - de dois grupos sócio-culturais, chamados, nesse trabalho, de nerds e descolados. Tal diferença é analisada pela perspectiva psicanalítica, ao considerar que os alunos reforçam as diferenças entre o grupo ao qual pertencem em relação ao outro grupo a partir do processo de identificação. A identificação envolve a formação do eu, que passa necessariamente pela imagem do outro. Sustentamos que a diferença entre esses grupos influencia na dinâmica da interação em sala de aula e, por isso, deve ser considerada e discutida no âmbito educacional. Nesse trabalho, também salienta-se a questão da identificação das professoras observadas com um grupo em detrimento do outro.

Resultados: en su mayoría las intervenciones fueron formuladas cuando el nivel de RA se encontraba por encima de la media de la RA del paciente, en una proporción de 1.2. Sin embargo, esta proporción es aún mayor cuando la intervención era una interpretación; en este caso la proporción es de 1.7.

    Parak, Wolfgang J.

    2017-02-01

    What happens to inorganic nanoparticles (NPs), such as plasmonic gold or silver, superparamagnetic iron oxide, or fluorescent quantum dot NPs, after they have been administrated to an animal or a human being? The review discusses the integrity, biodistribution, and fate of NPs after in vivo administration. First the hybrid nature of the NPs is described, by conceptually dividing them into the inorganic NP core, an engineered surface coating around the core which comprises the ligand shell and optionally also bioconjugation, and into the corona of adsorbed biological molecules. It is shown that in vivo all of these three compounds may degrade individually and that each of them can drastically modify the life-cycle and biodistribution of the whole hetero-structure. The NPs thus may be disintegrated into different parts, of which biodistribution and fate would need to be analyzed individually. Multiple labelling and quantification strategies for such purpose will be discussed. All reviewed data indicate that in vivo NPs no longer should be considered as homogeneous entity, but should be seen as inorganic/organic/biological nano-hybrids with complex and intricately linked degradation pathways.

  14. La fuga dell’‘Io’ narrativo nel romanzo del dopoguerra spagnolo

    Rosa Pignataro

    2014-10-01

    Full Text Available Il contributo consiste in una proposta di analisi di alcuni dei romanzi più significativi del dopoguerra spagnolo a partire dagli anni ’40 fino agli anni ’60-’70. Mi soffermo ad analizzare la ‘fuga’ dell’‘Io’ dalla narrazione in La familia de Pascual Duarte e La colmena, di Camilo José Cela, El camino di Miguel Delibes e Volverás a Región di Juan Benet. Il primo dei romanzi in esame è marcato dalla presenza forte ed imperante del yo narrativo di Pascual che rappresenta appieno la rotondità dell’autobiografia. La ‘fuga’, l’allontanamento, la disgregazione fino alla totale rottura del patto narrativo tra autore e lettore comincia a concretizzarsi con un romanzo della decade successiva, El camino, in cui un narratore onnisciente filtra l’esperienza autobiografica attraverso gli occhi dei bambini. Il passo successivo è la moltiplicazione infinita della rappresentazione del sé in un mosaico di voci e personaggi narranti ne La colmena. La fuga dell’‘Io’, poi, trova la piena realizzazione nell’opera benetiana Volverás a Región che stigmatizza il totale anonimato narrativo dato da un narratore onnisciente ma che, infrangendo le regole ‘tradizionali’ della narrazione, introduce il lettore in uno spazio dai contorni indefiniti, labili, opachi dove l’‘Io’ fluttua, rivela ciò che i personaggi dicono e sentono ma, confondendone nomi e vicende, testimonia la condizione di rovina dell’esistenza umana.

Rainfall depth, kinetic energy, 30-min intensity (I30, duration of rainfall events, and the erosivity indices KE >10, KE >25, and EI30 in 36 locations (stations were subjected to principal component analysis (PCA and canonical discriminant analysis (CDA. Based on evaluation of the respective historical series of hyetographs, it was found that the advanced pattern occurs with highest frequency (51.8 %, followed by the delayed pattern (26.1 %, and by the intermediate pattern (22.1 %. All the evaluated rainfall characteristics have high response capacity in describing localities and rainfall patterns through PCA and CDA. In CDA, the Tukey test (p<0.05 applied to the scores of the first canonical discriminant function (CDF1 allowed differentiation of the stations with respect to the rainfall and erosivity characteristics for the advanced and delayed patterns. In the delayed pattern, the localities of Angra dos Reis, Campos, Eletrobrás, Manuel Duarte, Santa Isabel do Rio Preto, Tanguá, Teresópolis, Vila Mambucaba, and Xerém had the highest CDF1 scores, indicating that they have rainfalls with higher depth, I30, and duration because the standardized canonical coefficient (SCC and the correlation coefficient (“r” of these characteristics were positive. The rainfall events in the state of Rio de Janeiro differ from one locality to another in relation to the advanced and delayed rainfall patterns, mainly due to the physical characteristics of rainfall depth, I30, and duration, indicating a higher risk of soil loss and runoff in the localities where rainfall events with the delayed pattern prevail.

    Full Text Available A lingua materna (LM deixa marcas inevitáveis na interlíngua de aprendizes de uma lingua estrangeira (LE. 0 input recebido e a conscientização das diferenças entre as línguas são fundamentais no desenvolvimento da LE. Segundo a Teoria de Princípios e Parâmetros (CHOMSKY, 1981, os princípios lingüísticos são universais, ou seja, estão presentes nas mentes de todos os seres humanos, e os parâmetros lingüísticos são estabelecidos a partir do input recebido durante o processo de aquisição da LM. No caso de brasileiros aprendizes de inglês, um aspecto que causa dificuldades é lidar com o sujeito gramatical, dadas às peculiaridades que cada lingua apresenta. A lingua inglesa é considerada uma lingua não pro-drop, por não admitir sujeito foneticamente vazio. Já a lingua portuguesa é considerada uma lingua em transição de pro-drop para não pro-drop, devido ao uso cada vez mais recorrente do sujeito foneticamente pleno (DUARTE, 1996. Além dessa mudança de parâmetro, uma outra característica que vem se desenvolvendo no português do Brasil é a topicalização do sujeito (KATO, 1989. Este artigo tem o intuito de demonstrar a presença desta peculiaridade do português do Brasil nas produções de brasileiros aprendizes de inglês, à luz da Teoria de Princípios e Parâmetros e do Modelo de Análise de Erros proveniente da Lingüística Contrastiva.

Small interference RNA (siRNA targeting PrxII gene expression was able to sensitize MCF+FIR3 radioresistant breast-cancer cells to ionizing radiation. The major focus of this work was to investigate how the radiation response of MCF+FIR3 radioresistant cells was affected by the siRNA that inhibits PrxII gene expression. Our results, presented here, show that silencing PrxII gene expression increased cellular toxicity by altering cellular thiol status, inhibiting Ca2+ efflux from the cells, and perturbing the intracellular Ca2+ homeostasis. By combining radiotherapy and siRNA technology, we hope to develop new therapeutic strategies that may have potential to enhance the efficacy of chemotherapeutic agents due to this technology's property of targeting to specific cancer-related genes.

Freemartins, infertile females from mixed-sex twin pregnancies, are chimeras, having two cell populations: one of their own (XX DNA and one from their male twin (XY DNA. Freemartins can have varying degrees of phenotypic masculinization, including, in some cases, having active male gonads and exhibiting male behaviors such as heat detection and aggressiveness. During the clinical examination of the freemartin ewe, a morphological abnormality of the vulva, the presence of scrotal sacs, and a lack of mammary tissue development were noted. On inspection of the vaginal channel, an extremely enlarged clitoris, resembling a penis, was found. The clinical evidence suggested freemartinism. After the karyotyping diagnosis confirmation, a necropsy was performed and samples were taken for histology and immunohistochemistry. There were two structures found in the scrotal sacs; however, these were found to be lymph nodes, not testicles, and this was confirmed by CD3 lymph protein coloration. On histological study, the phallic structure showed corpus cavernosum and tunica albuginea. The testicles were found retained inside the abdominal cavity, with the presence of atrophic seminiferous tubules. Although the position of the testicles in freemartins has been reported as highly variable, this is the first time, to the best of the authors' knowledge, that a case has been reported where lymph nodes have been found inside the scrotal sacs. It is possible that these were the inguinal lymph nodes, trapped inside the scrotum during fetal growth and development.Keywords: freemartinism

    2000-04-03

    The spallation reaction is considered as a 2-step process. First a very quick stage (10{sup -22}, 10{sup -29} s) which corresponds to the individual interaction between the incident projectile and nucleons, this interaction is followed by a series of nucleon-nucleon collisions (intranuclear cascade) during which fast particles are emitted, the nucleus is left in a strongly excited level. Secondly a slower stage (10{sup -18}, 10{sup -19} s) during which the nucleus is expected to de-excite completely. This de-excitation is performed by evaporation of light particles (n, p, d, t, {sup 3}He, {sup 4}He) or/and fission or/and fragmentation. The HETC code has been designed to simulate spallation reactions, this simulation is based on the 2-steps process and on several models of intranuclear cascades (Bertini model, Cugnon model, Helder Duarte model), the evaporation model relies on the statistical theory of Weiskopf-Ewing. The purpose of this work is to evaluate the ability of the HETC code to predict experimental results. A methodology about the comparison of relevant experimental data with results of calculation is presented and a preliminary estimation of the systematic error of the HETC code is proposed. The main problem of cascade models originates in the difficulty of simulating inelastic nucleon-nucleon collisions, the emission of pions is over-estimated and corresponding differential spectra are badly reproduced. The inaccuracy of cascade models has a great impact to determine the excited level of the nucleus at the end of the first step and indirectly on the distribution of final residual nuclei. The test of the evaporation model has shown that the emission of high energy light particles is under-estimated. (A.C.)

    This Letter raises four issues concerning two papers on galactosemia published in the March 1995 of the Journal. First, table 2 in the paper by Elsas et al. incorrectly attributes seven galactose-l-phosphate uridyl transferase (GALT) mutations (S135L, L195P, K285N, N314D, R333W, R333G, and K334R). The table also fails to mention that others have reported the same two findings attributed to {open_quotes}Leslie et al.; Elsas et al. and in press{close_quotes} and {open_quotes}Leslie et al.; Elsas et al.{close_quotes} The first finding on the prevalence of the Q188R galactosemia mutation in the G/G Caucasian population has also been described by Ng et al., and the second finding on the correlation of the N314D GALT mutation with the Duarte variant was reported by Lin et al. Second, Elsas et al. suggest that the E203K and N314D mutations may {open_quotes}produce intra-allelic complementation when in cis{close_quotes}. This speculation is supported by the activity data of individual III-2 but is inconsistent with the activities of three other individuals I-1, II-1, and III-1 of the same pedigree. The GALT activity measured in these three individuals suggests a dominant negative effect of E203K in E203K-N314D chromosomes, since they all have less than normal activity. Thus, the preponderance of the data in this paper is at odds with the authors speculation. It is worth recalling that Lin et al. also identified four N314D GALT mutations on 95 galactosemic chromosomes examined. A similar situation also appears to be the case in proband III-1 (with genotype E203K-N314D/IVSC) in the Elsas et al. paper. 9 refs.

    Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) remain among the most frequently reported distressing side effects associated with anthracycline-based chemotherapy despite significant advances in antiemetic management. The main risk factor for severity of CINV is the emetogenic potential of the chemotherapeutic agents. However, patient-related risk factors have been identified, including genetic makeup. Although studies have noted that ethnicity influences nausea and vomiting in other contexts, there is a paucity of research regarding the impact of ethnicity on CINV. This study was undertaken to evaluate whether Asian women receiving anthracycline-based chemotherapy experience more CINV than non-Asians. A retrospective, comparative, correlational chart review was performed to abstract the relevant variables. Data from a convenience sample of 358 women with breast cancer who received chemotherapy with doxorubicin between 2004 and 2008 at City of Hope in Duarte, California, were evaluated. The sample consisted of Caucasians (45%), Hispanics (27.7%), Asians (19.8%), and African Americans (7.5%). The results indicate that Asian women with breast cancer undergoing anthracycline-based chemotherapy experienced statistically significantly more clinically important CINV than their non-Asian counterparts. The data were collected retrospectively, with a certain population distribution at a specific time. This study provides interesting preliminary evidence that Asian ethnicity plays a role in the development of severe CINV. When managing chemotherapy toxicities in women with breast cancer, health-care providers should tailor therapy to individual risk profiles. Specifically, consideration of antiemetic therapy should accommodate patient characteristics, such as Asian descent. Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available De acordo com o modelo adotado pelo Grupo de Trabalho em Estética, o presente escrito é um comentário ao texto do colega Bruno Guimarães, “Arte, liberdade e política, em diálogo com Danto”. “Somente para os desesperados é que nos foi dada a esperança”: essa frase enigmática, com a qual Marcuse encerra o livro One-Dimensional Man, aparece na última parte do trabalho comentado e é o foco desse ensaio. Trata-se de uma citação que Marcuse faz de Walter Benjamin que com ela também termina seu ensaio sobre As afinidades eletivas, de Goethe (“Goethes Wahlverwandtschaften”. Cabe a pergunta: o que o homem unidimensional tem em comum com a novela romântica de Goethe? Tendo como foco a ideia de esperança, discorremos sobre os três textos – o de Marcuse, o de Benjamin e o de Goethe – com o propósito de esclarecer o, quase desesperado, conceito de esperança que brilha no final das obras de Benjamin e de Marcuse. A escolha foi motivada por duas razões: por o outro comentador, Rodrigo Duarte, ter se dedicado, durante um tempo considerável, ao estudo das reflexões de Danto, com mestria admirável e, portanto, ser capaz de analisá-las com competência indiscutível; e pelo fato de One-Dimensional Man, a obra mencionada de Marcuse, filósofo a cujo estudo venho me dedicando, neste ano de 2014 comemorar seu cinquentenário e, com isso, justificar o desejo de fazer-lhe essa homenagem.

However, the fragmented vision of their side effects and toxicity in humans has proscribed their use as nanomedicines. Most studies agree that biocompatibility depends on the state of aggregation/dispersion of CNTs under physiological conditions, but conclusions are confusing so far. This study designs an experimental setup to investigate the cytotoxic effect of individualized multiwalled CNTs compared to that of identical nanotubes assembled on submicrometric structures. Our results demonstrate how CNT cytotoxicity is directly dependent on the nanotube dispersion at a given dosage. When CNTs are gathered onto silica templates, they do not interfere with cell proliferation or survival becoming highly compatible. These results support the hypothesis that CNT cytotoxicity is due to the biomimetics of these nanomaterials with the intracellular nanofilaments. These findings provide major clues for the development of innocuous CNT-containing nanodevices and nanomedicines.

Despite the improved outcomes with monoclonal antibodies targeting human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 and vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2, durable responses are uncommon. Targeting immune checkpoints including PD-1, PD-L1 and CTLA-4 have led to improved survival across several tumor types, frequently characterized by prolonged benefit in responding patients. Tumoral and lymphocyte-derived immunohistochemical staining for PD-1, PD-L1, and tumor mutational burden have shown potential as predictive response biomarkers in several tumor types. Optimal incorporation of immune-mediated therapies into gastric cancer (GC is an area of intense ongoing investigation and benefit has been demonstrated in smaller studies of advanced patients. Important questions of biomarker selection, roles for molecular characterization, optimal combinatorial approaches, and therapeutic sequencing remain.

Data showed that y-ArtinM mirrored the specificity exhibited by n-ArtinM.

    Full Text Available Na história da psicologia escolar, a compreensão dos processos de produção e acompanhamento da queixa escolar é essencial, pois revelam a forma como a educação é percebida e construída pelos diversos atores do cenário educacional. Nesta perspectiva, procura-se conhecer a queixa escolar na cidade de Porto Velho (RO, por meio dos prontuários do Serviço de Psicologia Aplicada (SPA da Universidade Federal de Rondônia (UNIR. Foram analisados 634 prontuários, entre os anos de 1993 e 2006. Os prontuários foram analisados pela categorização de Souza (1997, acrescentando uma categoria (causa apontada pelos familiares. Os resultados corroboram pesquisas nacionais de mesmo cunho, onde a queixa escolar sofre um processo de patologização, psicologização e medicalização, bem como recebe atendimento na clínica-escola onde não se consideram os diversos atores da produção do fracasso escolar, nomeando o aluno e seus familiares pelos problemas constitucionais e emocionais.

    Full Text Available Publicado pela primeira vez há mais de duas décadas, A Produção do Fracasso Escolar, de Maria Helena Souza Patto, segue sendo uma obra de referência para pesquisadores em educação, gestores de sistemas e professores. Como explicar sua longevidade e fecundidade em um campo tão marcado pela rápida obsolescência de autores, teorias e perspectivas educacionais? No presente artigo apresentamos duas hipóteses complementares para essa sólida trajetória de sua obra. A primeira delas diz respeito ao potencial elucidativo de seu estudo que, recusando o jargão e os procedimentos cientificistas que apagam a concretude do real em favor de uma linguagem matematizada e padronizadora, apresenta um quadro significativo e complexo do cotidiano de uma instituição escolar e dos agentes nela envolvidos. Em suas análises emerge a singularidade desses agentes, tantas vezes obscurecidas por rótulos e fórmulas abstratas. Por outro lado, em sua pesquisa a peculiaridade do cotidiano de uma instituição não se desliga dos condicionantes históricos de natureza política e social que têm marcado as concepções e práticas educativas em nossa sociedade.

    Full Text Available Report a study that aims to uncover and analyze the role of the courses coordinators in vocational education. During the different phases of action research, with interventions by the Supervision of Centro Paula Souza, São Paulo, between the years 2011 and 2014, it was realized that the duties set forth in the official guidelines of the institution as well as preponderance of the educational aspects of the administrative decisively driving the roles that these professionals. However, along the way, it is possible that the course coordinator would eventually be associated with the bureaucratic service or the mere service of everyday demands. Overcoming this postulate, we understand that the course coordinator needs to be an active element in the planning and execution of the pedagogical work, an active collaborator in the educational process in the continuing education of their peers and refinement of teaching practices. The results of institutional evaluations demonstrate the contribution that research shares offered in recent years to a focus group of 22 schools.

    Full Text Available A new species of titi monkey, genus Callicebus Thomas, 1903, is described based on four individuals, one from a small tributary of the left bank of Rio Teles Pires, northern state of Mato Grosso, and three others from Largo do Souza, Rio Iriri, Pará, Brazil. The new species belongs to the Callicebus moloch species group, and the main diagnostic characteristics of the new species are the whitish forehead, sideburns and beard coloration, which are contiguous, forming a frame around the blackish face; overall body pelage coloration is pale grayish-brown agouti; hands, feet and tip of the tail whitish; belly and inner sides of fore and hind limbs uniformly orange. The pattern of pelage coloration and qualitative and quantitative skull morphology are described and compared to the other species of the Callicebus moloch group. Species of the Callicebus moloch group show great similarity in skull morphology and morphometrics, making the external morphological characters, specially the chromatic fields, the most reliable diagnostic trait to identify the species.

Two hundred and seventy-two sedentary women with a mean age of 66.75 ± 5.38 years were recruited for participation in this study. Obesity was determined by both body mass index and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA evaluations. Sarcopenic obesity diagnosis was established from the ratio between fat-free mass and body surface area as obtained by DXA. There was no association of obesity with sarcopenic obesity (P = 0.424. In contrast, sarcopenia was significantly related to sarcopenic obesity (P < 0.001, although most of the elderly women with sarcopenia (n = 171 did not exhibit sarcopenic obesity. These results highlight the importance of diagnosing sarcopenic obesity as elderly women exhibiting sarcopenia could be either eutrophic or obese.Keywords: sarcopenic obesity, aging, obesity, sarcopenia, health

    Full Text Available Ecotourism represents a segment of tourism that uses the natural resources in a sustainable manner, seeking to encourage their conservation and promote the well-being of the population. Thus, this research aimed to characterize, through observation, the lithotypes and geological structures of the natural tourist attractions of the region of Cabeça de Boi, in the municipality of Itambé do Mato Dentro (MG, as well as verifying the existing infrastructure in place for tourist assistance. Thus, the tourist attractions analyzed, represented by Intancado, Chuvisco, Maçã, and Lajeado and Poço waterfalls, are formed by quartzites associated to the Serra do Lobo Unit, Souza-Brumadinho Formation, belonging to the Espinhaço Supergroup. With regard to the infrastructure for tourism service, the negative aspect is the lack of signage to access tourist attractions; on the other hand, we can see the improvement related to the water supply of the community, as well as the capacity of this for the lodging of tourists. In general, aiming to contribute to the development of sustainable tourism in the Cabeça de Boi community, it is necessary to focus on environmental education involving tourists and residents, in order to mitigate negative impacts and preserve the environment.

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available Este ensayo explora la idea de justicia social y, teniendo en cuenta el papel del espacio público, el pensamiento utópico de David Harvey sobre el futuro de las ciudades. Este conocido geógrafo Inglés, que vive en EE.UU., dedica su vida a construir una teoría del desarrollo geográfico desigual que objetiva elaborar propuestas alternativas que empiecen un proceso continuo de cambios progresistas en la búsqueda de una sociedad más justa. El artículo analiza varios de sus escritos y construcciones teóricas, incluyendo a las que se refieren a la “justicia distributiva territorial” y el “utopianismo dialéctico”, como también las versiones modificadas del “derecho a la ciudad”, de Henri Lefebvre, y de “cosmopolitismo subalterno”, de Boaventura de Souza Santos. Harvey piensa que es fundamental que toda la infraestructura física y el aparato institucional producidos por la sociedad burguesa en los últimos 500 años sean sustituidos por otros sistemas que den origen a un espacio y lugar relacional alternativo, construido a partir de una “reflexión filosófica”, una “evaluación de requerimientos prácticos y de necesidades humanas básicas” y del “fermento de los movimientos sociales”.

Realiza uma discussão sobre as relações desenvolvidas entre os lusos e os autóctones e as formas que encontraram para viver as religiões. O papel do governador ilustrado D. Francisco Inocêncio de Souza Coutinho e suas ações para coibir os gentilismos. Para tanto, foram utilizadas fontes primárias depositadas no AHU, cronistas e a historiografia sobre o tema. Todo o debate se dá a luz do conceito de mestiçagem desenvolvido por Serge Gruzinski que observa o fenômeno como elemento que atingiu a civilização moderna à medida que integravam-se os povos e os espaços do Novo Mundo ao projeto ibérico de expansão. As variedades surgidas para as práticas do catolicismo foram múltiplas, diferenciando-se nas duas regiões estudadas, mas sem deixar de envolver lusos e autóctones de forma completa tornando-se vetores para a propagação de práticas mestiças em outras partes do globo.

    Full Text Available It is considered that the effective  interaction between any two quarks of a baryon can be approximately described by a simple harmonic potential. The problem is firstly solved in Cartesian coordinates in order to find the energy levels irrespective of their angular momenta. Then, the problem is also solved in polar cylindrical coordinates in order to take into account the angular momenta of the levels. Comparing the two solutions, a correspondence is made between the angular momenta and parities for almost all experimentally determined levels. The agreement with the experimental data is quite impressive and, in general, the discrepancy between calculated and experimental values is below 5%. A couple of levels of $Delta$, $N$, $Sigma^{pm}$, and $Omega$ present discrepacies between 6.7% and 12.5% ($N(1655$, $N(1440$, $N(1675$, $N(1685$, $N(1700$, $N(1710$, $N(1720$, $N(1990$, $N(2600$, $Delta(1700$, $Delta(2000$, $Delta(2300$, $Sigma^{pm}(1189$, $Lambda(1520$, $Omega(1672$ and $Omega(2250$.Received: 6 June 2011, Accepted: 13 July 2011; Edited by: D.

    Full Text Available Rebecca J Mallinson, Mary Jane De SouzaDepartment of Kinesiology, Women's Health and Exercise Laboratory in Noll Laboratory, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA, USAAbstract: The Female Athlete Triad (Triad represents a syndrome of three interrelated conditions that originate from chronically inadequate energy intake to compensate for energy expenditure; this environment results in insufficient stored energy to maintain physiological processes, a condition known as low energy availability. The physiological adaptations associated with low energy availability, in turn, contribute to menstrual cycle disturbances. The downstream effects of both low energy availability and suppressed estrogen concentrations synergistically impair bone health, leading to low bone mineral density, compromised bone structure and microarchitecture, and ultimately, a decrease in bone strength. Unlike the other components of the Triad, poor bone health often does not have overt symptoms, and therefore develops silently, unbeknownst to the athlete. Compromised bone health among female athletes increases the risk of fracture throughout the lifespan, highlighting the long-term health consequences of the Triad. The purpose of this review is to examine the current state of Triad research related to the third component of the Triad, ie, poor bone health, in an effort to summarize what we know, what we are learning, and what remains unknown.Keywords: female athlete Triad, bone health, treatment

    We calculate the stochastic upper bounds for the Lorenz equations using an extension of the background method. In analogy with Rayleigh–Bénard convection the upper bounds are for heat transport versus Rayleigh number. As might be expected, the stochastic upper bounds are larger than the deterministic counterpart of Souza and Doering [1], but their variation with noise amplitude exhibits interesting behavior. Below the transition to chaotic dynamics the upper bounds increase monotonically with noise amplitude. However, in the chaotic regime this monotonicity depends on the number of realizations in the ensemble; at a particular Rayleigh number the bound may increase or decrease with noise amplitude. The origin of this behavior is the coupling between the noise and unstable periodic orbits, the degree of which depends on the degree to which the ensemble represents the ergodic set. This is confirmed by examining the close returns plots of the full solutions to the stochastic equations and the numerical convergence of the noise correlations. The numerical convergence of both the ensemble and time averages of the noise correlations is sufficiently slow that it is the limiting aspect of the realization of these bounds. Finally, we note that the full solutions of the stochastic equations demonstrate that the effect of noise is equivalent to the effect of chaos.

Both display a semiconductor behavior with many interesting properties. The method of synthesis employed and different precursors may influence the morphology and properties of ceramic materials [1,2]. Barium (BT) and strontium (St) titanates were produced using the Microwave Assisted Hydrothermal Method (MAH), different concentrations (1,3 and 6 molL{sup -1}) of mineralizer (KOH) and a different titanium precursor: a complex anatase-hydrogen peroxide. Barium and strontium chloride were used as the other metal precursors. The resulting material were characterized by different techniques such as: X-ray diffraction (XRD), Micro-Raman Spectroscopy (MR), UV-Vis, Scanning Electron microscopy (SEM) and finally their photoluminescent emissions (FL) were recorded at room temperature. The results show that there were differences in crystallinity, morphology, number of formed phases and photoluminescent emission, among the titanate produced with different concentrations of mineralizer.

    Some of the volcano-sedimentary sequences of the Tocantins Province have been considered to be formed during the evolution of a Neoproterozoic intra oceanic island arc system (Pimentel et al., 2000). However, the interpretation of supra crustal rocks of some areas of the central portions of the Goias Massif, such as the region of Santa Terezinha de Goias, is still controversial. These rocks have been considered either as part of the Archean greenstone belts or as Paleoproterozoic sequences (Ribeiro Filho 1981, Souza and Le Neto 1981, Machado et al.1981, Ribeiro Filho and Lacerda Filho 1985, Biondi and Pidevin 1994, Arantes et al. 1991) rather than an extension of the Neoproterozoic Mara Rosa magmatic arc (Viana et al.1995, Pimentel et al. 1997). An area of about 800 km 2 near the town of Santa Terezinha de Goias was recently mapped on a 1:25.000 scale (Jost et al. 2001). Its northern part consists of Proterozoic supra crustal rocks in tectonic contact with Archean rocks in the south. We present new Sm-Nd and U-Pb zircon data for the supra crustal rocks that crop out in the northern part of the area and discuss their provenance and depositional age (au)

    Full Text Available The social networks are a means of development for entrepreneurs and for their companies. Training and the integration of networks are strategies used by entrepreneurs such as alternatives to overcome obstacles and obtaining resources (WHARTON; BRUNETTO, 2007; RAMOS; SOUZA, 2008. The objective of this study was to understand effects arising from the participation of women in business networks in the State of Paraná. For that, we used the qualitative method, performing 26 semi-structured interviews with women entrepreneurs who participate or have participated in the Council of Female Entrepreneur in the cities of Curitiba, Ponta Grossa, Foz do Iguaçu, Londrina, Maringa and Campo Mourao. Data analysis was performed by means of software Nvivo 8, resulting in codifications: reasons for entering, effects of participation for the companies and the effects of participation in the association for the businesswoman. They were identified in the results for the companies in terms of disclosure, shares of reciprocity, an increase in sales and exchange of experiences. Already about the effects on the individual, for the entrepreneurs, we also observed an increase of visibility, growth of professional respect, expansion of the contacts and knowledge management. These results are consistent with other literature (LERNER; BRUSH; HISRICH, 1997; MANOLOVA ET AL, 2007; MING-YEN; CHONG, 2007; WHARTON; BRUNETTO, 2007.

    A major goal of our selenium (Se) phytoremediation research is to use genetic engineering to develop fast-growing plants with an increased ability to tolerate, accumulate, and volatilize Se. To this end we incorporated a gene (encoding selenocysteine methyltransferase, SMT) from the Se hyperaccumulator, Astragalus bisulcatus, into Indian mustard (LeDuc, D.L., Tarun, A.S., Montes-Bayon, M., Meija, J., Malit, M.F., Wu, C.P., AbdelSamie, M., Chiang, C.-Y., Tagmount, A., deSouza, M., Neuhierl, B., Boeck, A., Caruso, J., Terry, N., 2004. Overexpression of selenocysteine methyltransferase in Arabidopsis and Indian mustard increases selenium tolerance and accumulation Plant Physiol. 135, 377-383.). The resulting transgenic plants successfully enhanced Se phytoremediation in that the plants tolerated and accumulated Se from selenite significantly better than wild type. However, the advantage conferred by the SMT enzyme was much less when Se was supplied as selenate. In order to enhance the phytoremediation of selenate, we developed double transgenic plants that overexpressed the gene encoding ATP sulfurylase (APS) in addition to SMT, i.e., APS x SMT. The results showed that there was a substantial improvement in Se accumulation from selenate (4 to 9 times increase) in transgenic plants overexpressing both APS and SMT. - Simultaneous overexpression of APS and SMT genes in Indian mustard greatly increases ability to accumulate selenate

    This paper extends the conversation started by Mariona Espinet, Mercè Izquierdo, Clara Garcia-Pujol; Ludovic Morge and Isabel Martins and Susana de Souza regarding the diverse issues faced by the internationalisation of science education journals. I use my own experience as an early career researcher coming from an underrepresented culture and language within academia to expand on these issues. I focus on the issues which I have experienced the most: the disconnection between university research and school practice and the struggles with the unspoken power structures. As I delve into my experience, I argue that we are failing to ask the right questions to create a science education community that is inclusive of diverse views and multicultural perspectives. We need to rethink how we can avoid colonisation of school teachers, as Isabel and Susana describe, but also the colonisation of those academics and teachers who are from non-English speaking cultures. I urge us to carry more debates such as the one initiated by these three authors, exposing and debating about the different power structures within science education so that we can progress in empowering all those voices that have been silenced.

    Neutron Spectrometry and Diffraction techniques began to be studied in Brazil with the construction of the first research reactors in the years 50 and 60, and were developed with the participation of national and international scientists. In particular, we note the perseverance of the Brazilian pioneer of nuclear energy, Dr. Marcello Damy de Souza Santos, and from that time, with the involvement of some of the early pioneers, such as the physicist Roberto Stasiulevicius, who had the privilege of working in all three Brazilian nuclear research reactors. All these scientists shared half a century of acquired knowledge, helping in the training of a number of experts who are now working in national and international nuclear institutes. The present work reviews in chronological order, the testimony of the historical facts associated with the development and application of experimental techniques using neutrons as a tool for materials analysis and studies for many areas of the sciences and also with the training of personnel. IPEN, IEN and CDTN, all institutes of the CNEN-Brazil, are important in the national and international scene as a result of the research carried out there and the large number of publications produced in the field of neutron spectrometry and diffraction from experimental work carried out using the IEA (5MW), Argonauta (5kW) and more recently, the IPR (250kW) research reactors. An extensive bibliography is also presented and this can be disseminated to everyone interested. (author)

    From 1996 to 1999 multi-trapping methods (Center of Diseases Control, CDC) light traps, light-baited Shannon traps, and aspiration on tree bases) were used to study the phlebotomine fauna of the "Serra do Navio" region of the Brazilian State of Amapá, which is part of the Guiana Shield. Fifty-three species were identified among 8,685 captured individuals. The following species, associated with the transmission of American cutaneous leishmaniasis in Amazonian Brazil, were captured: Nyssomyia umbratilis (3,388), Psychodopygus squamiventris maripaensis (995), Ny. anduzei (550), Trichophoromyia ubiquitalis (400), Ny. whitmani (291), Ps. paraensis (116), and Bichromomyia flaviscutellata (50). Flagellate infections were detected in 45 flies. Of the 19 parasites isolated in vitro, 15 were Leishmania (Viannia) guyanensis (13 in Ny. umbratilis, 1 in Ny. whitmani, 1 in Ny. anduzei) and three were L. (V.) naiffi (2 in Ps. s. maripaensis, 1 in Ny. anduzei). The results indicate the participation of three phlebotomine species in the transmission of L. (V.) guyanensis and two species in that of L. (V.) naiffi, and show that the same phlebotomine species is involved in the transmission of different Leishmania (Viannia) species in the Guianan/Amazon region. A review of the literature together with the results of the present study, and other published and unpublished results, indicate that eight phlebotomine species potentially participate in the transmission of Leishmania (Viannia) naiffi in Amazonia. © A.A.A. de Souza et al., published by EDP Sciences, 2017.

    This report documents a graphical display post-processor (SutraPlot) for the U.S. Geological Survey Saturated-Unsaturated flow and solute or energy TRAnsport simulation model SUTRA, Version 2D3D.1. This version of SutraPlot is an upgrade to SutraPlot for the 2D-only SUTRA model (Souza, 1987). It has been modified to add 3D functionality, a graphical user interface (GUI), and enhanced graphic output options. Graphical options for 2D SUTRA (2-dimension) simulations include: drawing the 2D finite-element mesh, mesh boundary, and velocity vectors; plots of contours for pressure, saturation, concentration, and temperature within the model region; 2D finite-element based gridding and interpolation; and 2D gridded data export files. Graphical options for 3D SUTRA (3-dimension) simulations include: drawing the 3D finite-element mesh; plots of contours for pressure, saturation, concentration, and temperature in 2D sections of the 3D model region; 3D finite-element based gridding and interpolation; drawing selected regions of velocity vectors (projected on principal coordinate planes); and 3D gridded data export files. Installation instructions and a description of all graphic options are presented. A sample SUTRA problem is described and three step-by-step SutraPlot applications are provided. In addition, the methodology and numerical algorithms for the 2D and 3D finite-element based gridding and interpolation, developed for SutraPlot, are described. 1

    Full Text Available This paper aims to analyze the validity of a quantitative instrument to identify what attracts someone to volunteer work, as well as what makes them stay and what makes them quit such an activity. The theoretical framework lists aspects related to volunteer work, which is followed by a discussion on models of analysis of volunteer motivation. As to the objectives, this research is descriptive, since it presents the analysis of the validity of a quantitative instrument that seeks to understand and describe the reasons for volunteering at the Pastoral da Criança, a Brazilian NGO. This instrument is based on theoretical ideas by Souza, Medeiros and Fernandes (2006. Reliability - Cronbach's Alpha - reached values between 0.7 and 0.8. Regarding Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin measure of sampling adequacy a good index was also obtained: 0.74. Despite the good results of reliability and sampling adequacy of factor analysis, none of the variables resulted in the expected combination, namely: indicators versus profile. It is necessary to improve the semantic meaning of certain factors, or even increase the number of indicators so as to generate additional correlations among them.

    Full Text Available The purpose of this study was to investigate the repercussion of the recent crisis of the university on its mission and responsibility and, from this reflection, to propose ways for the consolidation of this responsibility. The three main crisis faced by the university  from the middle of the XXth century identified by Boaventura Souza Santos as crisis of hegemony, of legitimacy and institutional, constituted the framework of discussion of the problem of social responsibility of the university. Although true for the universities of the advanced countries, the loss of hegemony in the area of research still does not occur in Brazilian university. To overcome the crisis of legitimacy, the creation of advanced academic and professional training institutions for the cultivation of the intellectual and professional elite of the country, as well as of non university institutions of mass higher education for the cultural and technological formation of the youth is justified. To make possible the access to these institutions by discriminated socioeconomic segments of society, the adoption of the policy of affirmative action in the form of quotas is justified.  The overcoming of the institutional crisis will be achieved when the State respect the specificity of the universities and when the evaluation criteria of her functions be adequate to her specific nature and the titularity of the evaluation belong to the institutions themselves assuring the external evaluation by effective pairs and not by pairs coopted by the State.

    We have adapted the maximally localized Wannier function approach of Souza et al (2002 Phys. Rev. B 65 035109) to the density functional theory based SIESTA code (Soler et al 2002 J. Phys.: Condens. Mater. 14 2745) and applied it to the study of Co substitutional impurities in bulk copper as well as to the Cu(111) surface. In the Co impurity case, we have reduced the problem to the Co d-electrons and the Cu sp-band, permitting us to obtain an Anderson-like Hamiltonian from well defined density functional parameters in a fully orthonormal basis set. In order to test the quality of the Wannier approach to surfaces, we have studied the electronic structure of the Cu(111) surface by again transforming the density functional problem into the Wannier representation. An excellent description of the Shockley surface state is attained, permitting us to be confident in the application of this method to future studies of magnetic adsorbates in the presence of an extended surface state.

    Full Text Available The ability to identify opportunities is the force behind thousands of small and medium enterprises, contributing to the improvement of social and economic performance of a country. The choice between starting an independent business or becoming franchisee seems to depend on different behaviors and attitudes of the entrepreneur. This research aims verify, based on entrepreneurial behavioral characteristics and the theory of planned behavior, whether there are differences in the degree of entrepreneurial attitude of franchisees and independent business owners, especially the food service industry. The issue as to possibility finding different attitudes in this study originated from assumedly less entrepreneurial characteristics of the franchisee, such as greater security and reduced innovation. As a theoretical basis, we dug into the concepts of entrepreneurship, entrepreneur and franchise, besides attitude and planned behavior. To data collect data we used the Instrument of Measure Entrepreneurial Attitude (IMAE proposed by Lopes and Souza Jr. (2005. The study was conducted with thirty occupants of the position of owner, main manager or co-owner of small and medium-sized food enterprises, in the city of Uberlândia, Brazil. Fifteen of them were franchisees and fifteen were independent business owners. Results indicated that, contrary to expectations, the entrepreneurial attitude of franchisees is higher. The most determinant factor in the entrepreneurial attitude differences observed in this study seems to be time in business.

    Full Text Available We aim to demonstrate that the criticism directed to Social Management (SMare built on historical bases capable of debates and extension of theoretical frameworks.We will expose the discussions that, held between critics and proponents of the idea of consolidation of SM as a field of knowledge, are based on classical authors such as Adorno, Karl Popper and Boa Ventura de Souza Santos and develop since the ‘90s, which confers them density and historicity. We will demonstrate the possibility of opening debates starting from criticism built about popular participation throughout the history of Brazil, and inserting another form of perception of the historical processes that make up the formation of a field of knowledge. We use the concept of long term proposed by Fernand Braudel, through which it is possible to understand that the historical facts, among them the establishment of an area of knowledge, should be observed from the plurality of their times, that can be structural, cyclical or factual. We conclude, from the comparative analytical perspective with another field of knowledge, history, that the Social Management is an area of knowledge and as such is in the process of discussion of its assumptions and paradigms.

During the period of 2001 April to 2001 July, 131 rejections from a total of 3936 mammography's exams over patients from CDM/SCMRJ, taking in consideration, the mistakes over confection of mammography. The obtained results show in a preliminary evaluation that from 131 utilized films, the more frequent mistakes were 29% from the positioning; 16.79% from radiographic artifacts; 9.16% from sub-exposition; 8.39% from inadequate techniques; 8.39% from overcast. The majority of rejected films happened during a clinical phase of radiographic confection, this shows that the efforts that have been done in the teaching and training from technicians and residents must be accentuated yet more to diminished these wrongs. The conditions of functioning are in the domain of preconization rules for a good radiographic analysis. (author)

    Full Text Available Starting from Hanna Arendt’s concept of action as freedom that makes possible the construction of the public space, the article discusses the dignity of politics expressed in the exercise of power as an inherent element of the human condition. In this sense, it distinguishes power from coercion and relates it to the idea of participation in community life, of which nobody should be deprived if they are to be able to fulfill themselves as human beings. The degradation of politics is expressed in the suppression of action and thus of power. In the view of Boaventura de Souza Santos, this jeopardizes the “modern social contract”, demanding its renewal through the public power’s commitment to the consolidation of processes of social inclusion. The author argues that such a redefinition of the public agenda implies the recognition of the “other” as a human being and that this perception, according to Charles Taylor, is not as obvious as it seems because of the socially made moral classifications. To promote citizenship is to provide the totality of individuals with the human condition. This assumption suggests a perception of the dignity of human life in any circumstances. The recognition of the “generic other” in their relevance is, however, inseparable from the strengthening of public power in terms of coordinating the market and distributive democracy. Key words: social theory, postmodern critique, social movements.

O ponto de partida desta reflexão é o verbete “Informe” de Georges Bataille, publicado no ano de 1929 no Dicionário crítico da revista Documents (1929-1931. Trazemos para a discussão a leitura realizada por Rosalind Krauss e Yve-Alain Bois, por ocasião da exposição L’informe. Mode d’emploi, em que o verbete batailleano é transformado em operação de caráter performativo. Partindo desses teóricos, pretende-se investigar os possíveis desdobramentos de alguns conceitos caros à modernidade, que circulam em torno do esgotamento das vanguardas e se elaboram em processo simultâneo aos próprios movimentos. Além dos trabalhos de Krauss e Bois, alguns textos críticos a respeito de outras obras de Bataille e também sobre a teoria da modernidade servem de referência, ao longo desse ensaio, para contrapor e apresentar as singularidades de duas produções artísticas.

Since HRM policies need to contribute to greater well-being and strengthen the confidence of employees in organizations (Mariotti & Souza, 2009; Nishii, Lepak, & Schneider, 2008; Turner, Huemann, & Keegan, 2008, this study aimed to assess the relationship between these variables, as perceived by 141 employees in a multinational company in the field of information technology. Multiple linear regression analysis, structural equation modeling and maximum likelihood method were conducted to test the proposed models of relationships between the variables cited above. Thus, it was possible to identify and confirm the influence HRM policies have on both confidence in the organization and employee well-being at work, as well as the influence of confidence on well-being at work. This research contributes to the advancement of studies in the areas of Human Resources Management and Organizational Behavior by analyzing a previously unexplored relationship between a set of variables and also served as a diagnostic for the studied organization, assisting company managers in their decision-making in order to improve employee well-being.

The aim of this is to develop a model of supply chain management focusing on the identification and minimization of waste, assisting in decision making and contributing to the quality of services and as a consequence the reduction of the costs involved in healthcare supply chain. The philosophies of continuous improvement and lean techniques have a role to play in helping healthcare to provide quality service and support to reduce costs in the current budget constraints. In the supply chain of hospitals the financial costs can be around 40% of its budget (MASOUMI et al. 2012; SOUZA et al., 2013. This article sheds light on the improvement in decision making and the effect of reducing costs in the healthcare supply chain. In this sense, the research intend to expand knowledge related to supply chain management in the area of ​​provision of healthcare services through the use of the philosophy of continuous improvement and lean principles, helping healthcare to provide quality service within their current budget constraints.

    Full Text Available Esse artigo parte da análise realizada por Boaventura de Souza Santos sobre o pensamento abissal e de sua consideração acerca da invisibilidade das distinções estabelecidas por esse pensamento através de suas manifestações, visando revelar a importancia de outros saberes, situados além da linha invisível que estabeleceu as distinções entre as realidades metropolitanas e coloniais. Trazendo a reflexão sobre o conhecimento produzido pelo pensamento abissal para o campo do saber (etnomusicológico, busca-se, a partir de um diálogo sul-sul estabelecido com a reflexão do teórico marxista indiano Aijaz Ahmad e da incorporação das contribuições das ciências sociais e das ciências da linguagem (semiótica e semiologia, enfrentar as questões da significação musical e da determinação das teorias do conhecimento, situando ambas no contexto em que tem sido produzidas. Desse modo, pretende-se demonstrar a importancia de um conhecimento musicológico engajado politicamente, capaz de ir além das visões naturalizadas de fenômenos socialmente contruídos e de contribuir para a superação do conformismo e da apatia preponderantes em nossos dias.

    Dias, A L

    The reduced number of female students of mathematics at the University of Bahia School of Philosophy (Faculdade de Filosofia, Universidade da Bahia - FF/UBa) is quite surprising. To date, they are concentrated in areas traditionally viewed as feminine whereas men predominate in the mathematical fields. I have examined interview data from a few women who graduated in mathematics and went on to teach at the University of Bahia School of Mathematics (Faculdade de Filosofia - FF) and at the Institute of Mathematics and Physics (Instituto de Matemática e Física - IMF), where they were soon to outnumber men and constitute the majority of the mathematics teaching staff. In this study, I have investigated the course of their careers over time: from their early student days, through their time as teaching assistants and professors, and finally as founders of the Institute of Mathematics and Physics, in 1960. Special reference is made to Martha Maria de Souza Dantas, organizer of the I Brazilian Conference on Mathematics Teaching, an event which has provided the groundwork for what was to become the Institute (IMF); and to Arlete Cerqueira Lima, the mastermind behind its creation.

    Full Text Available The study aims to identify the relation between the different stages of the organizational lifecycle and the planning process of accounting service companies in the State of Santa Catarina. This descriptive research with a quantitative approach was undertaken through a survey in a convenience sample of 116 companies. Therefore, the model by Miller and Friesen (1984 was used to identify the lifecycle stages and the instrument by Frezatti, Relvas, Nascimento, Junqueira and Souza (2010 to measure the usage level of the planning artifacts. The planning was analyzed in its three modalities: Strategic Planning, Budget and Budgetary Control. To analyze the data, discriminant and correlation analyses were used. The study results showed that the accounting service companies are classified in distinct stages of the organizational lifecycle, predominantly birth and rejuvenation. Only half of the companies analyzed use the budget, even when managed by people with a background in the area who know the importance of this instrument. In addition, a negative correlation was observed between the stages of birth and decline and the use of the planning artifacts and a positive correlation between the stages of growth, maturity and rejuvenation, in line with the results by Miller and Friesen (1984.

Algorithms1042-983210.1002/rsa.20038, 25, 432 (2004)], and recently investigated in the framework of discontinuous percolation by Chen and D'Souza [Phys. Rev. Lett.PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.106.115701 106, 115701 (2011)], is studied on the square and simple-cubic lattices. In two and three dimensions, we find numerical evidence for a strongly discontinuous transition. In two dimensions, the clusters at the threshold are compact with a fractal surface of fractal dimension df=1.49±0.02. On the simple-cubic lattice, distinct jumps in the size of the largest cluster are observed. We proceed to analyze the tree-like version of the model, where only merging bonds are sampled, for dimension two to seven. The transition is again discontinuous in any considered dimension. Finally, the dependence of the cluster-size distribution at the threshold on the spatial dimension is also investigated.

With emphasis on the organizational learning development in Solidarity Economy Enterprises (SEE, this study intended to investigate if and how the socially produced knowledge sharing occurs in Brazilian SEE. The research was conducted through a survey in two phases: the first one considered a sample of 378 enterprises, verifying the continuity and the main SEE characteristics, and the second one considered a sample of 32 enterprises analyzing if the produced knowledge is transferred and shared. As a reference for the analysis, we used the study conducted by Souza and Schlemm (2012 on knowledge application in organizational networks. The results showed many challenges to be faced, and the SEE surveyed presented some characteristics in common: the link created with its components is spontaneous; the work they performed, singly, is significant; the prescriptions are minimum and are limited to bylaws based on the legislation; the working rules only follow a legal requirement and are not shared by all the associates, reason why there is no commitment of them to the enterprise.

    Full Text Available This study is inspired by the problem of claims against terrorism as an expression of momentary interest, activities program, and products of history constructivism. To solve such problem, the study uses a critical historical analysis approach of Karl Rudolf Bultmann. The study concludes that terrorism, as a part of the wholeness of history, has played critical roles, namely the control role to the tyrannical-dominance and the role of ideology actualization. With the provision of institutionalized historical legacy, terrorism is not merely a temporary expression but it penetrates into borders of period of the history. In addition, with an emphasis on problem solving at the contemporary era, terrorism action is charged to provide a momentary response. Conceptual sources of this study are the view of Ahmad Jainuri about the character of terrorism and the view of Diniesh D’Souza on the profile and the main motive of terrorism. Based on evidences, data, and discussions of experts as well the terror doers themselves, the author argues that the essential meaning of terror—as a compelled action—lays in the fact that it is a noble meaning of historical and ideological aspects as well as a transcendent honor, which cross over the boundary of all conditions or all kinds of worldly reward.Keywords: Terrorism, contemporary, Islam, action.

Essas festas são protagonizadas há várias gerações pela população que habita a baía de Suape, cujo território é disputado pelo Complexo Industrial do Porto de Suape, o que tem provocado graves impactos ambientais sobre a biodiversidade da área com prejuízo das atividades pesqueiras. Como metodologia optou-se pelo estudo etnográfico com uso da observação participante e entrevistas com ênfase na história de vida, combinado com pesquisa bibliográfica e documental. Ainda considerou-se a memória narrativa como composta por “símbolos que demarcam a identidade de um grupo social” (TEDESCO, 2002, explicitando elementos como “relações sociais, seus vínculos de pertencimento, o significado da natureza biofísica nas suas vidas e o conflito socioambiental vivenciado” (SOUZA, 2009.

O presente estudo foi desenvolvido no período de outubro de 1986 a dezembro de 1987 em 23 perímetros de irrigação do Nordeste semi-árido. A análise sócio-econômica-sanitária mostrou vários aspectos de interesse epidemiológico, salientando-se a presença de trabalhadores flutuantes originários de áreas endêmicas da parasitose e vivendo em más condições sanitárias nos lotes de irrigação. O estudo coprológico indicou os seguintes resultados: de 10.279 indivíduos examinados (82% da população somente 3 (três casos apresentaram-se positivos para S. mansoni. O estudo malacológico mostrou a presença exclusiva da Biomphalaria straminea em 17.188 amostras coletadas. Somente em um dos perímetros (São Gonçalo, Souza, PB foi constatada a infecção esquistossomótica ativa em 17 caramujos. Esses resultados indicam que as áreas de irrigação estudadas não constituem, no momento, problema relevante de transmissão da esquistossomose.

Para tanto, empreende-se uma revisão da literatura que aborda a temática e investe-se em uma reflexão que concebe esse artefato como uma das expressões da materialidade que dá contornos à forma escolar, tomando-o na perspectiva da cultura material. Alguns autores servem aqui de referência: Richard Bucaille, Jean-Marie Pesez e Ulpiano Bezerra de Meneses, nos estudos em que se dedicam à cultura material; Agustín Benito Escolano e Rosa Fátima de Souza, nos trabalhos em que voltam o olhar para cultura material escolar; Inês Dussel e Katiene Nogueira da Silva, autoras que abordam diretamente a questão dos uniformes escolares. Não menos importantes para efeitos deste artigo são os trabalhos que tratam do movimento higienista, particularmente aqueles levados a cabo por José Gondra. Os dados levantados e as reflexões efetuadas indiciam dois movimentos (ou tensões nada desprezíveis. Por um lado, são evidentes as dificuldades encontradas para adoção dos uniformes escolares por todos os alunos, tanto por parte do Estado quanto por parte das famílias, devido ao fato de eles representarem um custo elevado, principalmente os calçados, artigos pouco utilizados pela maioria da população até, no mínimo, meados do século XX. Por outro lado, há indícios de que esse traje desempenhava uma função niveladora importante. Por meio dele, criava-se uma ideia de padronização e democratização do ensino, mesmo que em aparência, além de se dar visibilidade pública a uma instituição social cada vez mais importante: a escola.This text is devoted to situate the school uniform as a historical object, and as an important source on and in the school universe. For that, a literature survey is carried out on this theme, and a reflection is conducted envisaging this artifact as one of the expressions of materiality that

Trata-se de abordagem transdisciplinar, alinhada aos pressupostos teóricos da Ciência Contemporânea, na perspectiva complexo-sistêmica. Nesse sentido, o texto discute o cenário de mutação da Ciência, marcado pela incerteza, pela lógica processual, de constante transformação. Considera esses fatores associados à caosmosesociomidiática e informacional, que também interfere nas produções investigativas em geral, atingindo, dessa forma, também o Turismo. Além das visões de Morin, Capra e Boaventura Souza Santos, na perspectiva geral, quanto à Ciência, a proposição da cartografia é feita a partir da Esquizoanálise, principalmente com base em autores como Félix Guattari, Gilles Deleuze e Suely Rolnik. O texto discute a produção de investigações, a partir de uma metodologia que considera a lógica de ‘fazer fazendo’ e que se orienta por decisões que emergem no campo da pesquisa. A cartografia de saberes, como prática investigativa, está fundamentada em 25 anos de investigação científica, docência em Metodologia da Pesquisa, orientação em pesquisa e supervisão de textos acadêmicos em diversos níveis e áreas do conhecimento, bem como na experiência atual realizada no Centro de Ciências da Comunicação e no Mestrado em Turismo na Universidade de Caxias do Sul, como docente e pesquisadora.  Carthographyofknowledgesin Tourism Research: Methodological Propositions for a Changing Science - This paper presents a proposition for a 'cartography of knowledges' as a methodological strategy guidance for planning of research in tourism.

A Metodologia de Pesquisa utilizada foi a qualitativa, e a estratégia metodológica para a análise das entrevistas foi a do Discurso do Sujeito Coletivo (DSC. As representações extraídas dos discursos foram: a família cuida melhor, pois ela impede que o idoso fique deprimido; a família lança mão da institucionalização quando não possui um familiar para cuidar do idoso, e quando o idoso está muito dependente, necessitando de cuidados especiais. A institucionalização é entendida como maléfica, pois provocaria a morte do idoso, não sendo aceita nem pelo idoso nem pelo cuidador. Para muitos desses cuidadores a institucionalização é rejeitada, mas para outros configura uma possibilidade caso o cuidado, por alguma razão, não possa ser executado.The present paper proposes to describe the social representations of a group of elderly family caretakers about nursing homes.

This research aims to verify what educational policies have been developed, how it is carried out the education of pre-service and in-service teacher’s of foreign language for the pedagogical use of new technologies, and what investments have been made in didactic and technological resources of schools. Araújo’s (2007, Araújo and Dieb’s (2009, Marcuschi and Xavier’s (2010, Souza-Lima’s (2010 and Gomes’s studies are the main theoretical sources for this work. For the analysis, Data was collected by using a questionnaire from which the contribution of Foreign Language teachers of different public schools in the Regional Teaching Center of the city of Apucarana –Paraná was analysed. These teacher’s voices have given us basis for a rich reflection about the contradictions that exist among the curricular guidelines and the conditions that are offered to accomplish them.Atualmente, há muitos recursos tecnológicos que possibilitam a interação e o desenvolvimento de processos de aprendizagem de línguas estrangeiras: ferramentas que podem ser utilizadas por professores e alunos na construção do conhecimento.

The identification of the renin/prorenin receptor, the angiotensin-converting enzyme homologue ACE2 as an angiotensin peptide processing enzyme, Mas as a receptor for Ang-(1-7 and the possibility of signaling through ACE, have contributed to switch our understanding of the RAS from the classical limited-proteolysis linear cascade to a cascade with multiple mediators, multiple receptors, and multi-functional enzymes. In this review we will focus on the recent findings related to RAS and, in particular, on its role in diabetes by discussing possible interactions between RAS mediators, endothelium function, and insulin signaling transduction pathways as well as the putative role of ACE2-Ang-(1-7-Mas axis in disease pathogenesis.Keywords: renin–angiotensin system, diabetes, angiotensin II, angiotensin-(1-7, insulin, endothelium

    Full text: The development of high-performance lead-free piezoelectric ceramics is an important scientific and technological challenge, as environmental and health issues have imposed restrictions to the use of lead zirconate titanates, the most employed material in ferroelectric devices [1]. Strontium bismuth tantalate (SBT),SrBi{sub 2}Ta{sub 2}O{sub 9}, is an interesting alternative ferroelectric material as its polarization can be modified at low voltages and it shows limited polarization switching fatigue. However, the production of highly densified single-phase bulk SBT by conventional sintering procedures is strongly compromised by stoichiometric changes due to bismuth loss. In this work, high-pressure sintering has been exploited as an alternative procedure to obtain SBT highly-densified single-phase compacts. Using toroidal-type high-pressure chambers, samples were produced by reaction sintering of BiTaO{sub 4} and SrCO{sub 3} powders, mixed in the stoichiometric ratio corresponding to SrBi{sub 2}Ta{sub 2}O{sub 9}, at pressures of 2.5 GPa and 7.7 GPa, and temperatures up to 1250°C, during 10 min. X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy associated to energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy were used to follow the phase composition and the microstructure evolution as a function of the processing conditions. A single-phase SBT compact, with a relative density of 93% and a homogeneous microstructure, was produced by sintering at 2.5 GPa/900°C [2]. References: [1] K. Panda, J. Mater.

    Full text: The tilting and distortion of the orthorhombic perovskite have favored several properties and technological applications [1,2]. In this work, CaSn 1-x Zr x O 3 (x = 0.0, 0.25, 0.50, 0.75 and 1) were synthesized by the polymeric precursor, in order evaluate the efficiency of the materials in the photo catalysis of Remazol golden yellow (RNL). The powders were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Infrared (FTIR) UV-Vis and Raman spectroscopies. XRD patterns evidenced the formation of the perovskite structure for all of the samples and a shift of the peaks to smaller angles as Sn 4+ was substituted by Zr 4+ , due to an increase in the B cation size. The Zr 4+ insertion into the perovskite lattice influenced the long and short range ordering of the materials, mainly for the compositions with x = 0.50 and 0.75. The photo catalytic efficiency of the samples was evaluated on the degradation of remazol golden yellow (RNL) dye using a photo catalytic reactor (with UVC lamps), with reaction time of 2 hours. The concentration of dyes after the reactions was determined by measuring its UV–visible absorbance at 412 nm. The samples 0.50 and 0.75 better efficiency in the discoloration of dye in relation to other compositions. This behavior can be related to the different degrees of distortion, due to the replacement of Sn 4+ by Zr 4+ in octahedral site of the perovskite, as shown by XRD analysis and Raman spectroscopy.

Clinical features include neonatal hypotonia, poor weight gain in early infancy followed by binge eating from childhood to adulthood, severe obesity, developmental delay, short stature, and hypogonadism of both central and peripheral etiology. Central hypothyroidism and adrenal insufficiency may occur. Sleep disordered breathing, by obstruction of upper airways associated with central hypoventilation, is a common feature. Most of these characteristics are assumed to be the result of a hypothalamic dysfunction. The most important complication and the most difficult to manage is the obesity. This review aims at discussing the most recent strategies to manage the endocrine complications of Prader–Willi syndrome patients, with a special approach on the treatment of obesity, hypogonadism, and short stature.

    To document the response of the tobacco industry to the regulation of smoking in public places in Brazil starting in 1996. The Legacy Tobacco Documents Library (legacy.library.ucsf.edu/) and the British American Tobacco (BAT) Company Documents (bat.library.ucsf.edu/) were searched. The following key words were used: Brasil/Brazil; Souza Cruz; fumo passivo, tabagismo passivo/passive smoking; fumo de segunda mão/secondhand smoking; convivência em harmonia/courtesy of choice; along with the names of institutions, politicians, and individuals associated with tobacco control. We also searched the websites of cigarette manufacturers and hospitality industry organizations and businesses, news websites, and online newspapers and magazines. The search was limited to the period from 1995 to 2005. The text of the first law restricting smoking in Brazil (no. 9 294, of 1996) benefited the industry by stating that smokers and nonsmokers could share the same space provided that specific areas were designated as smoking and nonsmoking. As in other countries, the tobacco industry established partnerships with hotel, bar, and restaurant associations to prevent the passing of laws creating 100% smoke-free environments, as recommended by the World Health Organization. However, local state and city laws in major cities and states (such as Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo) have been successful in ensuring the creation of 100% smoke-free places. It is essential that Brazil recognize the damage caused by smoking and revise its federal law regulating smoking in closed environments. The knowledge concerning the strategies employed by the industry may be useful for politicians and health care professionals to prepare arguments opposing measures that can be detrimental to public health.

    Full Text Available he research focuses the Brazilian historiography of science, specifically on the life and work of a contemporaneous mathematician-physicist. It is part of the set of investigations that analyze, organize and describe personal, intellectual and professional itineraries of Brazilian scientists and educators. The research organizes and describes life history, education, professional experience and scientific production of Guilherme Maurício Souza Marcos de La Penha. We adopted the historical method for the development of this study, rising arguments about the profile of La Penha as a multiskill intellectual and revealing that his thoughts about science, technology, training scientists and educators were in accordance with his writings and professional practice. We considered theoretical aspects related to historical research, biographies, intellectual itineraries, archives and inventories as sources and media for historical construction, in order to point out the essential elements of this transdisciplinary profile, in other words, a scientist who carries out the research, management and administration, as well as a committed educator to the on-going training and forming process. Thus, it was possible to ensure that La Penha was a multi- and transdisciplinary intellectual who defended the possibility of forming, at the same time, a unique and multiple scientist, with non-linear behavior and who knows to dialogue with other fields – in order to be understood under a model of scientist for the 21st century. This model was clearly inspired by authors who La Penha admired throughout his training and professional activities, such as the three most important: Archimedes, Leonhard Euler and Clifford Ambrose Truesdell.

E-mail: vivianmedvet@yahoo.com.br It is described a case of dentigerous cyst in a 2-year-old female pampa horse that showed swelling in the right temporal region and a draining tract near the right pinna. The diagnosis is established with clinical, radiographic and histopathological examination of the surrounding structures. Dentigerous cyst is an uncommon condition in horses and it occurs most frequently in young animals. Twelve 1,3-4 cm white firm structures were removed, some with central pulp canal and longitudinal grooves in the external surface, grossly resembling teeth. Microscopic examination showed a structure compatible with dental tissue lined by a non-keratinezed epithelium. A lympho-plasmocitary inflammatory reaction was also seem in the dermis. Differential diagnoses includes congenital deformities of the bone, trauma, abscess and perforating foreign bodies. Post- -operative complications include haemorrhage, fracture of the temporal bone and permanent neurological damage. This case highlights the importance of the investigation of recurrent abscess in horses that are resistant to antibiotics.

Today, HIV infection is considered to be a risk factor for bone mineralization disorders. The test most recommended for diagnosing osteoporosis is measurement of bone mineral density by means of dual energy X-ray absorptiometry at two sites. Osteoporosis treatment has the aims of bone mass improvement and fracture control. A combination of calcium and vitamin D supplementation may reduce the risk of fractures. Antiresorptive drugs act by blocking osteoclastic activity and reducing bone remodeling. On the other hand, bone-forming drugs stimulate osteoblastogenesis, thereby stimulating the formation of bone matrix. Mixed-action medications are those that are capable of both stimulating bone formation and inhibiting reabsorption. Antiresorptive drugs form the group of medications with the greatest quantity of scientific evidence confirming their efficacy in osteoporosis treatment. Physical activity is a health promotion strategy for the general population, but only preliminary data on its real value and benefit among PLWHIV are available, especially in relation to osteoporosis.Keywords: osteoporosis, HIV/AIDS, diagnosis, treatment, exercise

Unilateral thyroparathyroidectomy with parathyroid gland autotransplantation was performed. Concentrations of serum urea, creatinine, alkaline phosphatase, alanine aminotransferase, phosphorus, potassium, total thyroxine and hematologic profile were determined before and seven days after surgery. Blood samples for serum ionized calcium concentration were collected before and after surgery on days 1, 2, 7, 15, 21. All cats had ionized calcium concentration within the reference range before surgery. Serum calcium concentration fell significantly in all cats within 24 hours after surgery. Hypocalcemia occurred in two cats without clinical signs. Ionized calcium concentration decreased after surgery and returned to normal levels on day 7 postoperatively.

    Full Text Available A educação tem um papel fundamental no desenvolvimento dos indivíduos e das sociedades, não só como transmissora de conhecimentos como meio para alcançar um fim, mas como formadora de um ser humano que responda aos seus anseios de profundidade com sentido. Este estudo objetiva investigar a noção de educação, não só como ensinamentos, mas também como promotora do desenvolvimento humano na Análise Existencial de Viktor Frankl, na visão de homem que ele transmite e buscar compreender a relevância da Análise Existencial para a educação. Fundamenta-se esse trabalho, em uma revisão bibliográfica de publicações e textos científicos. A Análise Existencial de Frankl e sua visão de homem, que compreende o ser humano como uma unidade antropológica, embora se considerem as diferentes dimensões de tipo ontológico, estão em oferecer uma contribuição intelectual que pode melhor promover relações interpessoais, reumanização da educação e da ciência em geral. Recibido: 09/01/2013 / Aceptado: 15/01/2013Cómo referenciar este artículoAparecida de Souza, E.; Salvino Gomes, E.

    Full Text Available The purpose of this article was to present the results of research about the use of management accounting tools by third sector entities. It was considered that the use of management tools assists in the management process and internal controls of the same, and consequently in its continuity. The literature discusses the importance of management accounting and its instruments for management purposes (Padoveze, 2004; Soutes, 2006; Pace, 2009 and presents relevant aspects of more traditional tools such as the Budget, Strategic Planning and Costing (Dubois, Kulpa and Souza, 2006; Martins, 2010; Padoveze, 2006. We tried to do a survey on a sample of NGOs in cities of Minas Gerais, which included at the end with 41 respondents institutions. The survey instrument for data collection was a questionnaire constructed from literature reviews related to objects of research (Third Sector and Management Accounting Instruments. The questionnaire had the purpose of gathering data from the entity and also know about of the respondent. In addition, interviews were conducted in some NGOs, complementing the research findings from the questionnaires. The results were divided into three topics: the respondent data, the organization and practices of management accounting. In general, although much progress has been made and success stories and effective improvements, most of these entities still need to develop their accounting information systems and the use of the instruments themselves. Causes of this may be the lack of knowledge about some of the entities management tools (maybe the respondents because of their formations, besides the reduced capacity of most of them have these "services" (controls and analyzes that run on its functional structure due lack of resources to do so.

    The Carajas Metallogenic Province is located in the southeastern Amazonian Craton. It has been divided in two domains, the southernmost comprises the Rio Maria region and the northernmost corresponds to Caraj region (Souza et al. 1996). The former domain is made up of Archean greenstone sequences (2,97 Ga), TTG (2,9 Ga) and calc-alkaline granitoids (2,87 Ga) (Macambira and Lafon 1995, Leite et al. 1999, Althoff et al. 2000). The Carajas block is constituted of minor mafic granulites (3,00 Ga) and quartzofeldspathic gneisses (2,81 Ga), metavolcanosedimentary sequences (2,76 Ga) and granites (2,76 to 2,56 Ga) (Machado et al. 1991; Huhn et al. 1999, Pidgeon et al. 2000). Widespread anorogenic A-type granites are found in both areas (Docegeo 1988; Dall'Agnol et al. 1994). In the last two decades several authors (Lindenamyer et al. 1994, Barros and Barbey 1998, Huhn et al. 1999 and others) have emphasized the role of the Archean granite magmatism in the tectonicthermal evolution in the Carajas Province. In this paper we discuss the tectonic significance of the Pb- Pb and U-Pb ages obtained in some granitoids from the Carajas region. The Estrela Granite Complex and the granitoids located to the north of Parauapebas were dated by Pb- Pb evaporation zircon method (cf. Kober 1987). Data are presented considering 2σ ∼ . The Pb corrections have been done in the basis of the evolution model of Pb in double stage (cf. Stacey and Kramers 1975). U-Pb zircon method (cf. Krogh 1973, Stacey and Kramers 1975, Parrish 1987, Ludwuig 1999), recently put on routine in the Para-Iso laboratories, was employed to date the granite from the Serra do Rabo area. Analyses were carried on the Finnigan Mat 262 spectrometer (au)

For that, we used two questionnaires: one analyzes the explanations for unemployment, and the other one is the Portrait Values Questionnaire (PVQ 21 – short version. Employed and formerly unemployed workers do not show any significant differences in explaining the causes of unemployment. On the other hand, regarding values, formerly unemployed workers show universalism and benevolence, values related to the self-transcendence dimension. Employed workers, in turn, show values of security, related to the conservatism dimension. The conclusion is that, even though technological innovations

We verified the preventive effects of Ex on lung oxidative markers induced by smoking. In this study, 36 mice (C57BL-6, 30–35 g were split into four groups: control, CS, Ex, and CS plus Ex. Ex groups were given prior physical training in water (2×30 min/d, 5 days/wk, 8 weeks. After training, the CS groups were subjected to passive exposure to four cigarettes, 3 × per day, for 60 consecutive days. After 24 hours from the last exposure, CS animals were sacrificed, and lung samples were collected for further analysis. Left lung sample was prepared for histological analysis, and right lung was used for biochemical analysis (superoxide, hydroxyproline, lipid peroxidation [thiobarbituric acid reactive species], protein carbonylation [carbonyl groups formation], superoxide dismutase [SOD], catalase [CAT], and glutathione peroxidase [GPx] activities. Group comparisons were evaluated by analysis of variance (ANOVA. Results were expressed as mean ± standard deviation, with P<0.05 considered significantly different. Preventive Ex impeded histological changes and increased the enzymatic defense system (SOD and GPx by reducing oxidative damage in lipids and proteins. This preventive effect of prior physical Ex alleviates damage caused by CS exposure.Keywords: exercise

This study aims to investigate the impact of limbic system morphology on FER scores in BD subjects and healthy controls.Material and methods: Thirty-nine euthymic BD I (type I subjects and 40 healthy controls were subjected to a battery of FER tests and examined with 3D structural imaging of the amygdala and hippocampus.Results: The volume of these structures demonstrated a differential pattern of influence on FER scores in BD subjects and controls. In our control sample, larger left and right amygdala demonstrated to be associated to less recognition of sadness faces. In BD group, there was no impact of amygdala volume on FER but we observed a negative impact of the left hippocampus volume in the recognition of happiness while the right hippocampus volume positively impacted on the scores of happiness.Conclusion: Our results indicate that amygdala and hippocampus volumes have distinct effects on FER in BD subjects compared to controls. Knowledge of the neurobiological basis of the illness may help to provide further insights on the role of treatments and psychosocial interventions for BD. Further studies should explore how these effects of amygdala and hippocampus volumes on FER are associated with social networks and social network functioning.Keywords: bipolar disorder, social cognition, facial emotion recognition

    Full Text Available Purpose: To study the quality of life, treatment outcomes, and satisfaction in patients who have undergone cataract surgery Methods: This comparative case series study was conducted at the Ophthalmology Service of the Bettina Ferro de Souza University Hospital, Belém, Pará, Brazil. Totally, 60 patients with cataract were included; 50% underwent conventional extracapsular cataract extraction (ECEE and 50% underwent cataract extraction by phacoemulsification (PHACO. Patients were interviewed using the Visual Function 14 (VF-14 questionnaire to determine the quality of life before and 30 days after surgery. The results of ophthalmological examination were recorded in the patients' files and were available throughout this study. One-way ANOVA, Tukey's post-hoc comparison, and the sign test were used for statistical analyses. Results: The mean VF-14 satisfaction index was 38.0 and 89.4 before and after surgery, respectively, for the ECEE group and 47.0 and 94.1, respectively, for the PHACO group. The improvement in patient quality of life after surgery was significant in both groups (p<0.0001, with a similar amount of improvement in both groups. Conclusions: The observed improvement in quality of life was significant (p<0.0001 and directly related to patient satisfaction with surgical outcomes, which was also significant (p<0.0001 as assessed using the VF-14. Satisfaction and quality of life are individual factors; consequently, patient responses to questions regarding improvements in the ability to perform each activity are subjective and depend uniquely on individual perception.

    The human being is constantly exposed to the natural radioactivity in the environment where he lives. This radioactivity comes mainly from materials present in the terrestrial crust that possess in their constitution chemical elements belonging to the radioactive families of uranium and thorium. The use of such materials for the construction of houses constitutes an important exposure form to the natural radiation, above all to the radioactive gas 222 Rn, that it is exhaled from them. The Brazilian soil is composed, among other, of minerals that contain appreciable concentrations of these elements. The inhabitants of Monte Alegre town in Para, located at 2 deg 00' 24,9 'S ; 54 deg 04 ' 13,5 W , used in the construction of their houses stones obtained from an area 20 km distant of Monte Alegre, denominated Ingles de Souza, located at 01 deg 56' 4 0,1 S; 54 deg 12 149,7 W, where a small residential village, denominated National Agricultural Colony of Para (CANP), is located. The objective of this work was to evaluate the indoor concentration of 222 Rn in the residences of Monte Alegre and CANP. Determinations of the 238 U and 226 Ra concentrations, measurements of the radon flux in samples of stones and soils of the two regions, as well as measurements to the gamma dose close of the soil and inside the residences, were also carried out. The average results of the radon concentration in the air of the investigated residences did not exceed the limits of 200 Bq. m 3 (action level) and 600 Bq. m 3 (intervention level) recommended by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP). The concentrations of natural radionuclides and the radon flux determined at the village showed values 17 times higher than those found at the urban area of Monte Alegre, while the average indoor gamma dose rate in the village residences was 0.86 mSv/a.

The worrying concern is that two-thirds to half of these students with LDs remain undiagnosed when they start their undergraduate education and may even graduate without having their disabilities diagnosed. These students struggle with their academic abilities, receive poor grades and, as a result, develop lower perceptions of their intellectual abilities than do those students without LDs. All these ultimately hamper their professional practice, employment, and career progression. Appropriate and adequate educational policies, provisions, and practices help students to progress satisfactorily. In Asian countries, public and professional awareness about LDs is low, supportive provisions are limited, legislations are inadequate, data are scarce, and equal-opportunity/widening-participation policies are not implemented effectively in the HE sector. This article discusses the issues related to LDs in medical education and draws policy, provision, and practice implications to identify, assess, and support students with LDs in medical schools, particularly in an Asian context.Keywords: medical education, learning disabilities, dyslexia, Asia

    Full Text Available (primeiro parágrafo do artigo Em um de seus artigos, Antonio Cândido de Mello e Souza lembrou que somente em torno da década de 1930 é que se desenvolveu no país a consciência da nação subdesenvolvida, a idéia do atraso econômico e da marginalização social. Seria interessante refletir sobre o porque desse retardamento das avaliações a respeito da verdadeira condição do país no confronto com o chamado mundo desenvolvido. O mesmo autor demonstra a incidência durante praticamente todo o período colonial das fantasias paradisíacas com que os europeus projetavam suas ansiedades e incertezas milenares sobre o Novo Mundo e que já foram matéria de pesquisas minuciosas por estudiosos desse período. A essa visão idílica da terra, os românticos brasileiros vieram somar, logo após a Independência, as imagens da natureza luxuriante, do impulso inato à liberdade e ao heroismo pilesentes no sangue indígena e da emotividade exacerbada pela inspiração das belezas naturais. Otimismo liberal e individualista próprio de uma concepção de mundo híbrida da crença mercantilista da prodigalidade da natureza como a fonte da riqueza e do novo culto à plena liberdade de iniciativas, origem e fim de toda harmonia social, segundo a cartilha de Adam Smith.

Methods: An observational and transversal study of bank employees evaluated anthropometric, hemodynamic, and biochemical data. CRP values were determined using commercial kits from Roche Diagnostics Ltd, and MS criteria were analyzed according to National Cholesterol Education Program’s – Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP/ATP III. Results: A total of 88 individuals had MS, and 77.3% (n=68 of these showed alterations of us-CRP (P=0.0001, confidence interval [CI] 0.11–0.34. Individuals with MS had higher mean values of us-CRP in global measures (P=0.0001 and stratified by sex (P=0.004 than individuals without the syndrome. This marker exhibited significant differences with varying criteria for MS, such as waist circumference (P=0.0001, triglycerides (P=0.002, and diastolic blood pressure (P=0.007, and the highest levels of us-CRP were found in individuals with more MS criteria. Conclusion: us-CRP was strongly associated with the presence of MS and MS criteria in this group of workers. us-CRP is a useful and effective marker for identifying the development of MS and may be used as a reference in routine care. Keywords: C-reactive protein, bank employees, metabolic syndrome, inflammation mediators, occupational health

    Full Text Available Na atualidade das políticas públicas para o espaço urbano no Brasil, tem sido criada uma normatização geral acerca da construção de instrumentos de planejamento e gestão urbana, constituídos especialmente no período pós-Constituição de 1988. A normatização dispõe acerca da obrigatoriedade de boa parte dos municípios brasileiros em construir seus instrumentos de planejamento e desenvolvimento urbano, notadamente o plano diretor. Nesse sentido, trata-se de compreender o processo de difusão das principais abordagens de desenvolvimento urbano, no contexto de estruturação de planos diretores municipais urbanos, analisando as cidades amazônicas pelo estudo de caso da conformação metropolitana de Belém a partir de suas duas principais cidades, Belém e Ananindeua. O estudo busca elucidar como a difusão dessas abordagens de desenvolvimento acontece na escala local, especialmente na construção de instrumentos de planejamento e gestão, como os planos diretores. Este estudo foi fundamentado teoricamente a partir da contribuição acerca das abordagens de desenvolvimento urbano de Souza (1998; 2000; 2002 e, do ponto de vista metodológico, adotou uma abordagem de pesquisa qualitativa, utilizando análise documental e dados primários provenientes de instituições de planejamento envolvidas no processo de difusão da agenda urbana na Amazônia.

J Strength Cond Res 30(8): 2100-2106, 2016-Variable resistance training (VRT) has recently become a component of strength and conditioning programs. Prior research has demonstrated increases in power and/or strength using low loads of variable resistance. However, no study has examined using high loads of variable resistance as a part of a periodized training protocol to examine VRT within the context of a periodized training program and to examine a greater load of variable resistance than has been examined in prior research. Fourteen National Collegiate Athletic Association division II male basketball players were recruited for this study. Athletes were divided equally into either a variable resistance or control group. The variable resistance group added 30% of their 1 repetition maximum (1RM) as band tension to their prescribed weight 1 session per week. Rate of power development (RPD), peak power, strength, body composition, and vertical jump height were measured pretreatment and posttreatment. No baseline differences were observed between groups for any measurement of strength, power, or body composition. A significant group by time interaction was observed for RPD, in which RPD was greater in VRT posttraining than in the control group. Significant time effects were observed for all other variables including squat 1RM, bench press 1RM, deadlift 1RM, clean 3RM, vertical jump, and lean mass. Although there were no significant group ×-time interactions, the VRT group's percent changes and effect sizes indicate a larger treatment effect in the squat and bench press 1RM values and the vertical jump performed on the force plate and vertec. These results suggest that when using variable resistance as a component of a periodized training program, power and strength can be enhanced. Therefore, athletes who add variable resistance to 1 training

AMSCs can be acquired through noninvasive methods, and therefore are exempt from the typical ethical issues surrounding stem cell use. The objective of this study was to isolate and characterize AMSCs from a cat amniotic membrane for future application in regenerative medicine. The cat AMSCs were harvested after mechanical and enzymatic digestion of amnion. In culture medium, the cat AMSCs adhered to a plastic culture dish and displayed a fibroblast-like morphology. Immunophenotyping assays were positive for the mesenchymal stem cell-specific markers CD73 and CD90 but not the hematopoietic markers CD34, CD45, and CD79. Under appropriate conditions, the cat AMSCs differentiated into osteogenic, chondrogenic, and adipogenic cell lineages. One advantage of cat AMSCs was nonteratogenicity, assessed 4 weeks post injection of undifferentiated AMSCs into immunodeficient mice. These findings suggest that cat amniotic membranes may be an important and useful source of mesenchymal stem cells for clinical applications, especially for cell or tissue replacement in chronic and degenerative diseases.

The aim of this study was to obtain and characterize an extract of Libidibia ferrea, ex Caesalpinia ferrea L. and to evaluate its feasibility for formulation as a mouthwash, according to current legislation. For this purpose, pH, sedimentation, density, and stability were evaluated, along with microbiological testing of the extract. The microbiological test was used to verify the presence of Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, fungi, yeasts, coliforms, and minimum inhibitory concentrations of Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus oralis strains. Characterization, microbiological evaluation, and minimum inhibitory concentration results were tabulated and described using descriptive statistics. The L. ferrea extract showed stable characteristics, product quality, and antibacterial activity against the microorganisms tested irrespective of experimental time intervals. According to these results, it can be concluded that formulation of a mouthwash containing L. ferrea extract to control biofilm is feasible, but further studies are needed.Keywords: biofilm, extract, quality control

E-mail: luisgd@unifran.br The oral cleft palate deformities are characterized by disruption in the integrity of the bone and palatal mucosa, having variable extensions and multifactorial etiologic character. Frequently are unnoticed by owners and veterinarians at birth and are diagnosed only when the animal begins to demonstrate clinical respiratory signs. Affected patients have direct communication between the oral and nasal cavity, which can cause aspiration pneumonia and hinder the negative intraoral pressure necessary for the suction of milk, these being factors contributors to the deficit in body growth and death. This paper aimed to highlight important points about this rare oral disease in small animals, moreover, report the case of a dog with cleft palate treated successfully with the technique of overlapping flap palatoplasty.

    Full Text Available Summary: Glioma diagnosis is based on histomorphology and grading; however, such classification does not have predictive clinical outcome after glioblastomas have developed. To date, no bona fide biomarkers that significantly translate into a survival benefit to glioblastoma patients have been identified. We previously reported that the IDH mutant G-CIMP-high subtype would be a predecessor to the G-CIMP-low subtype. Here, we performed a comprehensive DNA methylation longitudinal analysis of diffuse gliomas from 77 patients (200 tumors to enlighten the epigenome-based malignant transformation of initially lower-grade gliomas. Intra-subtype heterogeneity among G-CIMP-high primary tumors allowed us to identify predictive biomarkers for assessing the risk of malignant recurrence at early stages of disease. G-CIMP-low recurrence appeared in 9.5% of all gliomas, and these resembled IDH-wild-type primary glioblastoma. G-CIMP-low recurrence can be characterized by distinct epigenetic changes at candidate functional tissue enhancers with AP-1/SOX binding elements, mesenchymal stem cell-like epigenomic phenotype, and genomic instability. Molecular abnormalities of longitudinal G-CIMP offer possibilities to defy glioblastoma progression. : IDH-mutant lower-grade glioma glioblastoma often progresses to a more aggressive phenotype upon recurrence. de Souza et al. examines the intra-subtype heterogeneity of initial G-CIMP-high and use this information to identify predictive biomarkers for assessing the risk of recurrence and malignant transformation.

    The rapid assessment of biodiversity making use of surveys of local knowledge has been successful for different biological taxa. However, there are no reports on the testing of such tools for sampling insect fauna. The present study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of different ethnobiological techniques for rapid sampling of insect fauna. Field research for the conventional survey of insect fauna was conducted on a private farm (9 ° 43'38.95 "S, 37 ° 45'11.97" W) , where there was intensive cultivation of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. (Moench)). The survey of local entomological knowledge was conducted among all the producers of okra living in the rural villages Pereira, Santa Luzia, and Nassau de Souza, within the Jacaré Curituba irrigated settlement scheme. The combined use of the techniques "free list" and projective interviews was analyzed, using two types of visual stimuli: stock photos and an entomological box. During the conventional survey of insect fauna, the species Bemisia tabaci biotype B, Aphis gossypii, Phenacoccus sp., Icerya purchasi and Lagria villosa were the primary pests found in the okra crop. Regarding the survey of insect pests, the results were convergent  in both techniques (conventional sampling and free list). Comparing the interview with visual stimuli (pictures) and specimen witnesses (entomological box) revealed that the latter was more effective. Techniques based on the recording and analysis of local knowledge about insects are effective for quick sampling of pest insects, but ineffective in sampling predator insects. The utilization of collected insects, infested branches, or photos of the symptoms of damage caused by pests in projective interviews is recommended.

    From 1952 to 1962, a scientific and cultural periodic, named 'Revista Anhembi, was sold monthly. The magazine target was Brazilian and foreign schools and universities, his students and whoever was interested on culture, science, politics or signed articles. This publication purpose was to be the divulgation vehicle of new cultural and scientific ideas, most of them produced by Brazilian researchers, intellectuals and artists. Together with the cultural production of authors like Carlos Drummond de Andrade, the magazine also covered the major happenings from Brazil and the world. The editorials were signed by the magazine director - Paulo Duarte - one of the intellectuals with participation in the University of Sao Paulo foundation. Other researchers, already well-known at that time, such as Jose Reis, Florestan Fernandes and others, published in Anhembi, regularly. Their articles presented always a favorable content to democracy and the country development. What was out-of-date and its 'agents', the dictatorships, the corruption were open enemies of the magazine, which criticized governments, like for example, General Salazar's, in Portugal. The criticisms, sometimes contrary to the status quo, finally justified the circulation prohibition in some countries, like in Portugal, and also a diminishing of the advertising sponsorship Not only because of these problems, the increase in the paper cost made, in the long run, the publication of Anhembi impossible to continue. Meanwhile, the national nuclear policy and its defenders, like Alvaro Alberto da Motta e Silva, besides some other researchers, was not one of the routine issues covered by the magazine. Despite the magazine reported, in every new edition, a series of occurrences and claims - new universities and research centers foundation in the country, the struggle for funds, the national commissions asking for the full-time dedication regime for research, the nuclear issue focused, mainly

The aim of this study was to analyze and understand the differences between these two probes in nonobese patients, to identify underlying causes for these differences, and to develop a practical algorithm to translate results for the XL probe to those for the M probe.Methods and results: Both probes were directly compared first in copolymer phantoms of varying stiffness (4.8, 11, and 40 kPa and then in 371 obese and nonobese patients (body mass index, range 17.2–72.4 from German (n = 129 and Canadian (n = 242 centers. Liver stiffness values for both probes correlated better in phantoms than in patients (r = 0.98 versus 0.82, P 10 kPa for F0, F1–2, F3, and F4 fibrosis, respectively significantly improved agreement between the two probes from r = 0.655 to 0.679.Conclusion: Liver stiffness can be measured in significantly more obese and nonobese patients using the XL probe than the M probe.

  19. 3D Numerical Rift Modeling with Application to the East African Rift System

    As key components of plate tectonics, continental rifting and the formation of passive margins have been extensively studied with both analogue models and numerical techniques. Only recently however, technical advances have enabled numerical investigations into rift evolution in three dimensions, as is actually required for including those processes that cause rift-parallel variability, such as structural inheritance and oblique extension (Brune 2016). We use the massively parallel finite element code ASPECT (Kronbichler et al. 2012; Heister et al. 2017) to investigate rift evolution. ASPECT's adaptive mesh refinement enables us to focus resolution on the regions of interest (i.e. the rift center), while leaving other areas such as the asthenospheric mantle at coarse resolution, leading to kilometer-scale local mesh resolution in 3D. Furthermore, we implemented plastic and viscous strain weakening of the nonlinear viscoplastic rheology required to develop asymmetric rift geometries (e.g. Huismans and Beaumont 2003). Additionally created plugins to ASPECT allow us to specify initial temperature and composition conditions based on geophysical data (e.g. LITHO1.0, Pasyanos et al. 2014) or to prescribe more general along-strike variation in the initial strain seeding the rift. Employing the above functionality, we construct regional models of the East African Rift System (EARS), the world's largest currently active rift. As the EARS is characterized by both orthogonal and oblique rift sections, multi-phase extension histories as well as magmatic and a-magmatic branches (e.g. Chorowicz 2005; Ebinger and Scholz 2011), it constitutes an extensive natural laboratory for our research into the 3D nature of continental rifting.

E-mail: duartevet@hotmail.com In cattle fed with diets without vegetable fibers the development of fungi and other microorganisms in the rumen environment can be altered. The objective of this study was to evaluate physicochemical, microbiological characteristics and fungal population in the rumen contents of steers raised on lignified pasture or in feedlot without forage. The experimental design was completely randomized, 50 steers were randomly bred in mature pasture and 20 steers fed without forage. Immediately after collection of ruminal fluid, its physicochemical characteristics were evaluated. Micromorphological examination, direct examination for the detection of strict anaerobes fungi and culture, quantification, identification of aerobic fungi were performed. On direct examination, anaerobic fungi of the rumen, monocentric and polycentric were detected in similar proportions (P> 0.05 for rumen fluid of steers raised in tropical pastures during the dry season. However, structures of these microorganisms were not identified for any of the samples obtained from steers fed without vegetal fiber. The average colony-forming units of aerobic fungi by mℓ of ruminal fluid from confined calves was significantly higher than that of animals raised on pasture (P <0.05. After microculture, the genus Aspergillus was the most
