  20. On Issues of Precision for Hardware-based Volume Visualization

    LaMar, E C

    2003-04-11

    This paper discusses issues with the limited precision of hardware-based volume visualization. We will describe the compositing OVER operator and how fixed-point arithmetic affects it. We propose two techniques to improve the precision of fixed-point compositing and the accuracy of hardware-based volume visualization. The first technique is to perform dithering of color and alpha values. The second technique we call exponent-factoring, and captures significantly more numeric resolution than dithering, but can only produce monochromatic images.

    In situ vitrification (ISV) has been identified as an alternative technology for remediation of the acid pit and transuranic pits and trenches (TRU-PTs) at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL) Subsurface Disposal Area (SDA). However, a number of technical issues must be resolved before ISV can be considered applicable to these waste sites. To assist in the ISV technology evaluation, an ISV Steering Committee was formed to identify, prioritize, and develop closure roadmaps for technical issues lated with ISV application at the SDA. The activities of the ISV Steering Committee are summarized in a three-volume report. Volume I identifies the systematic approach used to identify and prioritize the ISV technical issues and briefly discusses the methodology that will be employed to resolve these issues. Volumes 2 and 3 discuss each technical issue in greater detail and suggest specific closure roadmaps to be used in resolving technical issues associated with ISV at the SDA Acid Pit and TRU-PTS, respectively. The three-volume report is a working document that will be updated as necessary to reflect current evaluation strategy for the ISV technology. This is Volume 3.

  20. Just Roll with It? Rolling Volumes vs. Discrete Issues in Open Access Library and Information Science Journals

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jill Cirasella

    2013-08-01

    Full Text Available INTRODUCTION Articles in open access (OA journals can be published on a rolling basis, as they become ready, or in complete, discrete issues. This study examines the prevalence of and reasons for rolling volumes vs. discrete issues among scholarly OA library and information science (LIS journals based in the United States. METHODS A survey was distributed to journal editors, asking them about their publication model and their reasons for and satisfaction with that model. RESULTS Of the 21 responding journals, 12 publish in discrete issues, eight publish in rolling volumes, and one publishes in rolling volumes with an occasional special issue. Almost all editors, regardless of model, cited ease of workflow as a justification for their chosen publication model, suggesting that there is no single best workflow for all journals. However, while all rolling-volume editors reported being satisfied with their model, satisfaction was less universal among discrete-issue editors. DISCUSSION The unexpectedly high number of rolling-volume journals suggests that LIS journal editors are making forward-looking choices about publication models even though the topic has not been much addressed in the library literature. Further research is warranted; possibilities include expanding the study’s geographic scope, broadening the study to other disciplines, and investigating publication model trends across the entire scholarly OA universe. CONCLUSION Both because satisfaction is high among editors of rolling-volume journals and because readers and authors appreciate quick publication times, the rolling-volume model will likely become even more prevalent in coming years.

    Full Text Available Because the volume of currency issued by a country always affects its interest rate, price index, income levels, and many other important macroeconomic variables, the prediction of currency volume issued has attracted considerable attention in recent years. In contrast to the typical single-stage forecast model, this study proposes a hybrid forecasting approach to predict the volume of currency issued in Taiwan. The proposed hybrid models consist of artificial neural network (ANN and multiple regression (MR components. The MR component of the hybrid models is established for a selection of fewer explanatory variables, wherein the selected variables are of higher importance. The ANN component is then designed to generate forecasts based on those important explanatory variables. Subsequently, the model is used to analyze a real dataset of Taiwan's currency from 1996 to 2011 and twenty associated explanatory variables. The prediction results reveal that the proposed hybrid scheme exhibits superior forecasting performance for predicting the volume of currency issued in Taiwan.

    1989-03-01

    Nuclear deterrence, a cornerstone of US national security policy, has helped prevent global conflict for over 40 years. The DOE and DoD share responsibility for this vital part of national security. The US will continue to rely on nuclear deterrence for the foreseeable future. In the late 1950s, Sandia developed satellite-borne nuclear burst detection systems to support the treaty banning atmospheric nuclear tests. This activity has continued to expand and diversify. When the Non-Proliferation Treaty was ratified in 1970, we began to develop technologies to protect nuclear materials from falling into unauthorized hands. This program grew and now includes systems for monitoring the movement and storage of nuclear materials, detecting tampering, and transmiting sensitive data securely. In the late 1970s, negotiations to further limit underground nuclear testing were being actively pursued. In less than 18 months, we fielded the National Seismic Station, an unattended observatory for in-country monitoring of nuclear tests. In the mid-l980s, arms-control interest shifted to facility monitoring and on-site inspection. Our Technical On-site Inspection Facility is the national test bed for perimeter and portal monitoring technology and the prototype for the inspection portal that was recently installed in the USSR under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces accord. The articles in the special issue of Sundiu Technology describe some of our current contributions to verification technology. This work supports the US policy to seek realistic arms control agreements while maintaining our national security.

    Endostatin is a potent anti-angiogenic and anti-tumor protein capable of regressing tumors without inducing acquired resistance. Since it is a fragment of the parental molecule, collagen XVIII, its endogenous production depends on the activity of a specific proteolytic enzyme. While such an enzyme has been described in mice, a human counterpart has not been identified so far. Here, we searched for this enzyme by using a fluorescence resonance energy transfer peptide containing the cleavage site of human collagen XVIII. We found that the cleavage activity was present in various murine and human tumor cells but not in untransformed cells. It was ascribed to a large protein complex identified as an extracellular form of proteasome 20S. Since circulating proteasome 20S has recently emerged as an important marker of tumor progression, the possibility of proteasomes controlling the production of angiostatic endostatin may inspire the development of new anticancer therapies.

    The ICMOVPE-XVIII conference created meaningful opportunities for intellectual challenge, networking opportunities, and intellectual stimulation for graduate students, Post-Doctoral Fellows and all attendees. This technical and social program further provided many opportunities for communication, brainstorming, and transfer of information as well as the development of collaborations across many institutions and companies. We had a significant number of members of underrepresented groups in STEM attending this conference. We also are publishing the proceedings of this conference with the Journal of Crystal Growth, a journal which receives wide electronic distribution in many academic institutions world-wide, making the technical information presented at ICMOVPE-XVIII have a much broader impact than would otherwise be possible. ICMOVPE XVIII had a total of 216 presentations and of these; there were 70 Student oral or poster presentations. The funds we obtained for student support from the Department of Energy were distributed among the registered students and Post Docs to supplement the full cost of registration of $1,100 each for regular registration to the reduced rate of at $850 each for graduate students and Post Docs.

    Disease control in domestic fleet in XVIII century was a part of government measures concerning protection of the territory of the Russian Empire from the penetration of dangerous infectious diseases. Understanding the role fleet could play in the spread of infection, the government sought to prevent its entry from the sea. Following this task, in the early 20-s of XVIII century on islands of the Gulf Seskar and Wolf organized sanitary quarantine stations where ships from unfavorable in relation to the epidemic areas stayed before they pester the Russian shore. Eventually when the Black Sea Fleet was created, similar items appeared in Ochakov, Sevastopol, Feodosia, Yalta and Kerch. In XVIII century health legislation was supplemented by a number of regulations relating to the activities of the fleet. In particular, during the reign of Peter I epidemic rules were composed, which, as it became known, lasted for about sixty years. In 1786, the band released a set of quarantine rules designed to streamline the work of sanitary and quarantine stations. Important for protection against the penetration of Russian borders infectious diseases had timely warning of epidemics broke out abroad. Cooperating with European countries in the prevention and control of communicable diseases, Russia has successfully developed methods antiepidemic protection.

    Full Text Available El propósito del artículo es demostrar que en la segunda mitad del siglo XVIII, en Santiago de Chile, la circulación monetaria fue mucho más activa de lo que hasta ahora se ha aceptado. Con este propósito se han revisado los niveles de acuñación, especialmente los de moneda menuda, porque esta era la que circulaba en los mercados cotidianamente y se usaba para fijar los precios de los comestibles, así como para pagar los jornales de los trabajadores en la ciudad de Santiago a fines del siglo XVIII y comienzos del siglo XIX. Esto quiere decir que la gente común conocía el dinero y lo utilizaba para pagar sus transacciones cotidianas, lo que a su vez implicaría que la economía chilena estaba creciendo y conformando un mercado con sus propias características.The object of this article is to illustrate that during the second half of the eighteenth century monetary circulation was much more active in Santiago than had been previously thought. To that end minting levels have been analyzed especially the volume of small change as this was the currency that circulated in the daily market and was used to fix the price of foodstuffs as well as to pay daily wages in the city of Santiago during the late eighteenth and the early nineteenth century. This means that common people knew about and used money in their daily transactions and also implies that the Chilean economy was growing and forming a market of its own.

  17. Childhood and its Age Limits in Society of Getmanat in the XVIII Century

    Full Text Available This article will talk about the child in society of Hetman – the autonomous entity within the Russian Empire, which was rapidly losing the remnants of autonomy in the second half of the XVIII century, subjecting to the desire of the center to modernize and unify its border territory. Such interaction of traditions and innovations influenced the public's worldview and determined the attitude to the family, marriage, child. These topics are still relatively poorly studied in the Ukrainian material, particularly the problems of childhood. The studies of actually "little man" in Ukraine of XVIII century are made virtually from a clean slate and at the beginning it is necessary to determine whom society is considered as a child, and also when the childhood is ended. This issue is harder than it seems at first glance, because the society of Hetmanate in relation to children was guided by the stratagem of folk traditions, religious norms, the "old" law (the Lithuanian Statute, the Magdeburg right and sachsenspiegel inherited from the Commonwealth and the "new" laws of the Russian Empire. They determined the age of adulthood in different ways, when the individual became a child and was no longer to be, as well as the criteria of those age limits. It is important that the legal mechanisms of age-identification included in the action in the case of judicial proceedings, property disputes, marital conflicts. On a daily level, the perception of childhood and maturity depended on the combination of external features of an individual (body type, facial features, etc., conduct, and perform social roles. A huge role is played the institution of marriage, act of which was probably the most important and revealing marker of the fact that the kid finally became an adult.

  2. «A REWARD FOR VIRTUE, AND A PENANCE FOR INIQUITY»: THE PROBLEMS OF FUNCTIONING OF THE LEGAL POLITICAL LANGUAGE IN XVIII CENTURY RUSSIAN PUBLIC THOUGHT

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Konstantin D. BUGROV

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available The paper deals with the issue of functioning of the legal political language in Russian public thought of XVIII century. The author demonstrates that for XVIII century Russian elites legal categories were inferior in comparison with the moral categories of the political analysis. The Russian political culture was dominated by the court communication sphere with panegyric, manifesto and report as its main genres and therefore was not sensitive to the theories of natural law and contractualism, staying closer to moralism of Leibniz rather than natural law jurisprudence of Pufendorf. However, in Russia the court political discourse also embraced the idea of miracle, a direct intervention of Providence into the political life, which reflected in the legitimation of several palace coups. The court elites were treating the law as a classification of administrative regulations and the necessity of punishing the vices and rewarding the virtues, just as Godly justice did. In turn, the growing public sphere also had little interest in the juridical glossaries, preferring to debate the moral, historical and economic texts. The author concludes that the weakness of the juridical doctrines in XVIII century Russia was conditioned by the specifics of Russian political system.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available The subject of our study is the policy of the Avar Khans towards Russia in XVIII XIX centuries. Most researchers believe that the Avar Khans State was always interested in close relations with the powerful nation, pursued a policy of deepening relations and, almost always, been loyal to Russia. This can be seen in the period of open confrontation Highlanders during the Caucasian War. Of course, such a policy could not lead to conflicts between the Avar Khan State and its nearest neighbors, causing the latter to exercise intolerance such loyalty to Russia. All of these issues are covered with the involvement of the literary and archival materials. Thus, based on the analysis of sources, the author establishes that the manifestation of the desire of the Avar Khan State, which occupies an isolated position in relation to other feudal lords, the establishment of a strong alliance with Russia is always determined by the desire Khans have Russia as a strong and reliable ally than to amass it in as an enemy. On the basis of archival sources, we can state the fact that Russia, in turn, highly valued the loyalty of Khan's house and noted it all sorts of honors.

The Spanish domestic service in the Old Regime Spain, specially the maids, was exposed to plenty of risks. Sexual harassement was by far one of the most common. This happening could appear in several forms, since an originally consented relationship until crimes such as raping. Through this paper, we annalyze the most common servant ´s sexual conducts based on the court documentation for the XVII and XVIII centuries by analyzing the conflicts reflected in these sources. Maids precariousness, their legal resources and the society perspective over their position are the issues adressed in the paper searching for a overview of the servant´s sexual dangers and its consequences as well as the maid's strategies in openly hostile ambient.

To make the rational investor decision making, it is needed a relevant information in order to identify any work of the company. Event study is a study which analyze any market reactions toward an event which the information is published as announcement. Right issue announcement can affect market, it is depent on the existence of the content of the information in the right issue announcement above. If the right issue announcement contains some information so the market will react and the market won’t react if no information. The research sample is determined by a purposive sampling method, and there are 17 companies which announce right issue between 2000-2003. Statistical experiment used is T-test experiment (paired two samples for means. The Observation period which is done in 11 day, consist of 5 day before, 1 day in the moment, and 5 day after the announce right issue. Results show that there is a significant difference between return and abnormal return in the period of between at the moment, and after the announce right issue. The result in the before-after announce right issue period shows that there is no significant difference. The result in the variable activity of stock’s trade volume shows that there is signification difference in the before-at the moment and after period, but in the result of before-after period show that there is no significant difference there.

    Quantitative imaging biomarkers are being used increasingly in medicine to diagnose and monitor patients' disease. The computer algorithms that measure quantitative imaging biomarkers have different technical performance characteristics. In this paper we illustrate the appropriate statistical methods for assessing and comparing the bias, precision, and agreement of computer algorithms. We use data from three studies of pulmonary nodules. The first study is a small phantom study used to illustrate metrics for assessing repeatability. The second study is a large phantom study allowing assessment of four algorithms' bias and reproducibility for measuring tumor volume and the change in tumor volume. The third study is a small clinical study of patients whose tumors were measured on two occasions. This study allows a direct assessment of six algorithms' performance for measuring tumor change. With these three examples we compare and contrast study designs and performance metrics, and we illustrate the advantages and limitations of various common statistical methods for quantitative imaging biomarker studies.

    This report is the last of four volumes that identify and assess the environmental, health, and safety issues that may affect the commercial-scale use of sodium-sulfur (Na/S) battery technology as the energy source in electric and hybrid vehicles. The reports are intended to help the Electric and Hybrid Propulsion Division of the Office of Transportation Technologies in the US Department of Energy (DOE/EHP) determine the direction of its research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) program for Na/S battery technology. The reports review the status of Na/S battery RD&D and identify potential hazards and risks that may require additional research or that may affect the design and use of Na/S batteries. This volume covers the in-vehicle safety issues of electric vehicles powered by Na/S batteries. The report is based on a review of the literature and on discussions with experts at DOE, national laboratories and agencies, and private industry. It has three major goals: (1) to identify the unique hazards associated with electric vehicle (EV) use; (2) to describe the existing standards, regulations, and guidelines that are or could be applicable to these hazards; and (3) to discuss the adequacy of the existing requirements in addressing the safety concerns of EVs.

    Full Text Available An accurate evaluation of an engineering desing of the past requires a knowledge of the technical conditions under which it was drawn. For example, what were the resources available for the study of the topography on which the construction was going to be placed? Such a study must preceed the drawing of the plans of any preliminary sketch. On the following pages we will analyze the topographical equipment of an engineer of the end of the XVIIIth century.

    Para valorar un proyecto antiguo es preciso saber en qué condiciones técnicas se tiizo. Cuáles eran, por ejemplo, los medios disponibles para el estudio de la topografía en que la obra se iba a asentar, operación previa al levantamiento de los planos. Vamos a analizar, en las páginas siguientes, el equipo y los métodos topográficos de un ingeniero del siglo XVIII.

    1979-10-01

    The Regional Assessments Division in the US Department of Energy (DOE) has undertaken a program to assess the probable consequences of various national energy policies in regions of the United States and to evaluate the constraints on national energy policy imposed by conditions in these regions. The program is referred to as the Regional Issues Identification and Assessment (RIIA) Program. Currently the RIIA Program is evaluating the Trendlong Mid-Mid scenario, a pattern of energy development for 1985 and 1990 derived from the Project Independence Evaluation System (PIES) model. This scenario assumes a medium annual growth rate in both the national demand for and national supply of energy. It has been disaggregated to specify the generating capacity to be supplied by each energy source in each state. Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) has the responsibility for evaluating the scenario for the Federal Region 10, consisting of Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. PNL is identifying impacts and constraints associated with realizing the scenario in a variety of categories, including air and water quality impacts, health and safety effects, and socioeconomic impacts. This report summarizes the analysis of one such category: institutional constraints - defined to include legal, organizational, and political barriers to the achievement of the scenario in the Northwest.

    2004-06-01

    Full Text Available The 18th century defense of tolerance rests upon two lines of argument; lines that we can observe in thinkers such as Montesquieu and Rousseau, Diderot, Romilly and Voltaire. The first deconstructs the concept of absolute truth as it applies not only to the (orthodox doctrine itself, as revealed by God, but also to the Catholic Church insofar as it is taken to be the only institution where truth resides uniquely. The second line of argument would run as follows: Once we acknowledge the rights of consciousness to every single religion, how can we possibly avoid a circular justification of intolerance? Romilly and Voltaire defend, without renouncing to the rights of consciousness (which are the base of individual liberties, the Lockean thesis of the separation Church-State. However, they assign to the State the ius circa sacra. It is only upon this foundation that the idea and the practice of tolerance, both religiously as well as universally and multiculturally speaking, can be constructed.

    La defensa de la tolerancia, en el siglo XVIII, se apoya en dos líneas de argumentación, que observamos en pensadores como Montesquieu y Rousseau, Diderot, Romilly y Voltaire. Una es la que deconstruye el concepto de verdad absoluta aplicado tanto a la doctrina (ortodoxa, por ello revelada por Dios como a la institución considerada única depositaria de tal verdad, la Iglesia católica, única «verdadera». Otra sigue este argumento: si se reconocen los derechos de la conciencia a toda confesión religiosa, ¿acaso podría evitarse una justificación circular de la intolerancia? Sin renunciar a los derechos de la conciencia, base de las libertades individuales, Romilly y Voltaire sostienen la separación Iglesia-Estado, como lo hiciera Locke, asignando a éste el ius circa sacra. Sólo sobre esta base se logra fundamentar la idea y la práctica de la tolerancia no sólo religiosa, sino también universal o multicultural.

Es decir, desde su aparición en Copons, esta fecunda población de la Cataluña rural, pasando por su etapa de reputados hombres del comercio castellano, hasta su definitivo retorno al Principado. La suya fue una trayectoria brillante. Fruto de una compleja red de alianzas tejidas a partir de pactos asociativos y familiares minuciosamente calculados. Sus actividades comerciales se desarrollaron dentro del marco de la compañía de Manuel, Juan Vidal y Cía, una de las de más renombre del panorama vallisoletano del Setecientos. Sus intereses les llevaron a emparentar y a aliarse, a veces de forma reiterada, con otras destacadas estirpes: los Ramón y los Jover. Originarios de Copons y residentes en Valladolid. Esta fuerte endogamia se convirtió en un arma de doble filo, que contribuyó decisivamente a debilitar su capacidad de maniobra. La extinción de una de las dos ramas familiares permitió a los Jover tiacerse con el control de la firma patrimonial. Ivlientras que la otra prefirió reinstalarse en Copons, donde organizó nuevos pactos matrimoniales y asociativos dentro del ámbito de la próspera industria algodonera comarcal.The aim of this article is to analyze the evolution of a Catalán businessmen dinasty, the Vidal, throughout the 18th century and the first half of the 19th century.

  11. Increased angiogenic response in aortic explants of collagen XVIII/endostatin-null mice.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Li, Qing; Olsen, Bjorn R

    2004-08-01

    Endostatin, a proteolytic fragment of basement membrane-associated collagen XVIII, has been shown to be a potent angiogenesis inhibitor both in vivo and in vitro when given at high concentrations. The precise molecular mechanisms by which it functions and whether or not it plays a role in physiological regulation of angiogenesis are not clear. In mice with targeted null alleles of Col18a1, there appears to be no major abnormality in vascular patterns or capillary density in most organs. Furthermore, the growth of experimental tumors is not increased. However, a detailed analysis of induced angiogenesis in these mice has not been performed. Therefore, we compared the angiogenic responses induced by in vitro culture of aortic explants from collagen XVIII/endostatin-null mice (ko) to wild-type (wt) littermates. We found a twofold increase in microvessel outgrowth in explants from ko mice, relative to wt explants. This increased angiogenesis was reduced to the wt level by the addition of low levels (0.1 microg/ml) of recombinant mouse or human endostatin during the culture period. To address cellular/molecular mechanisms underlying this difference in angiogenic response between ko and wt mice, we isolated endothelial cells from both strains and compared their biological behavior. Proliferation assays showed no difference between the two types of endothelial cells. In contrast, adhesion assays showed a striking difference in their ability to adhere to fibronectin suggesting that collagen XVIII/endostatin may regulate interactions between endothelial cells and underlying basement membrane-associated components, including fibronectin, such that in the absence of collagen XVIII/endostatin, endothelial cells are more adhesive to fibronectin. In the aortic explant assay, characterized by dynamic processes of microvessel elongation and regression, this may result in stabilization of newly formed vessels, reduced regression, and a net increase in microvessel outgrowth in

    Full Text Available Acute renal failure (ARF is a frequent complication of Gram-negative sepsis, with a high risk of mortality. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS-induced ARF is associated with hemodynamic changes that are strongly influenced by the overproduction of nitric oxide (NO through the cytokine-mediated up-regulation of inducible NO synthase. LPS-induced reductions in systemic vascular resistance paradoxically culminate in renal vasoconstriction. Collagen XVIII is an important component of the extracellular matrix expressed in basement membranes. Its degradation by matrix metalloproteases, cathepsins and elastases results in the formation of endostatin, claimed to have antiangiogenic activity and to be a prominent vasorelaxing agent. We evaluated the expression of endostatin/collagen XVIII in an endotoxemic ARF model. ARF was induced in C57BL/6 mice by intraperitoneal injection of LPS (10 mg/kg followed by sacrifice 4 and 12 h later. Kidney tissue was the source of RNA and protein and the subject of histological analysis. As early as 4 h after LPS administration, blood urea, creatinine and NO levels were significantly increased compared to control. Endostatin/collagen XVIII mRNA levels were 0.71 times lower than sham-inoculated mice 4 h after LPS inoculation, returning to normal levels 12 h after LPS inoculation. Immunohistological examination revealed that acute injury caused by LPS leads to an increase of endostatin basement membrane staining in association with the decrease of CD31 endothelial basement membrane staining. These results indicate that in the early phase of endotoxemic ARF the endostatin levels were not regulated by gene expression, but by the metabolism of collagen XVIII.

    Full Text Available The paper presented a review of the records made by the French-speaking explorers of the Caucasus (of the period from the XVIII to XIX centuries reporting the facts on the Largest Silk Route. The notes mentioned the ancient contacts between the Northern Caucasian ethnic communities and the communities of Asia and Europe. The contribution the French-speaking researchers have made had shaped the headway elaborating the issue, in particular, exploring cultural interactions established from the IV century B.C. to XI century A.D. owing to the ancient tracks beaten across the Northern Caucasus. Carl von Richthofen was the first to launch the expression the «Largest Silk Route» into the academic turnover once having published the book in 1877 where the writer called by this term the tracks having linked two worlds, - the Orient and the West. The ancient writers Herodotus, Strabo, Pliny had evidenced for existence of the ancient merchant track since the IV century B.C. Some French-speaking explorers over the XVIII andXIX centuries had taken a keen interest in discovering the ancient merchant routes in the steppes of the Southern Russia and the Northern Caucasus. The paper reviewed different standpoints on the issue of the Silk Route that such French-speaking authors produced as J. Potocki et F. Dubois de Montereux. Owing to details reported by F. Gilles, the author made the substantial amendment to the issue of positioning for the ancient Caucasian fortress Borgoustan.

    We present a photometric study of the Andromeda XVIII dwarf spheroidal galaxy associated with M31, and situated well outside of the virial radius of the M31 halo. The galaxy was resolved into stars with Hubble Space Telescope/Advanced Camera for Surveys revealing the old red giant branch and red clump. With the new observational data we determined the Andromeda XVIII distance to be D = 1.33+-0.08 Mpc using the tip of red giant branch method. Thus, the dwarf is situated at the distance of 579 kpc from M31. We model the star formation history of Andromeda XVIII from the stellar photometry and Padova theoretical stellar isochrones. An ancient burst of star formation occurred 12-14 Gyr ago. There is no sign of recent/ongoing star formation in the last 1.5 Gyr. The mass fractions of the ancient and intermediate age stars are 34 and 66 per cent, respectively, and the total stellar mass is 4.2x10^6 Msun. It is probable that the galaxy has not experienced an interaction with M31 in the past. We also discuss star form...

    Full Text Available O presente artigo estuda o contrabando no século XVIII, em especial em relação ao Rio de Janeiro e ao Atlântico Sul. Neste artigo discuto não apenas a mecânica do contrabando e os participantes deste comércio ilegal, mas os vários fatores que ocasionaram as medidas portuguesas, metropolitanas e coloniais para impedir o comércio clandestino. Estudo particularmente como tais medidas representaram um compromisso entre diferentes interesses, tais como: o papel do monarca, a integridade ou a maleabilidade da autoridade real, a aplicação dessa legislação e os tipos de penalidades impostas aos infratores, trazendo questões sobre o que constituíam ações legais ou ilegais, assim como questões mais amplas relativas à ética e à moralidade pública no Brasil colônia.This article focuses on contraband in the eighteenth century, with special reference to Rio de Janeiro and the South Atlantic. It discusses not merely the mechanics of contraband and the participants in this illegal trade, but the many factors that contributed to Portuguese metropolitan and colonial measures to curb clandestine trade. I am particularly intrigued by the degree to which such measures represented a compromise between different interests. The role of the monarch, the integrity or malleability of royal authority, the latitude in enforcement of such legislation and the range of penalties imposed on infractors raise questions as to what constituted legal or illegal actions, as well as broader issues of ethics and public morality in colonial Brazil.

  19. Star formation history of And XVIII: a dwarf spheroidal galaxy in isolation

    We present a photometric study of the Andromeda XVIII dwarf spheroidal galaxy associated with M31, and situated well outside of the virial radius of the M31 halo. The galaxy was resolved into stars with Hubble Space Telescope/Advanced Camera for Surveys revealing the old red giant branch and red clump. With the new observational data we determined the Andromeda XVIII distance to be D = 1.33_{-0.09}^{+0.06} Mpc using the tip of red giant branch method. Thus, the dwarf is situated at the distance of 579 kpc from M31. We model the star formation history of Andromeda XVIII from the stellar photometry and Padova theoretical stellar isochrones. An ancient burst of star formation occurred 12-14 Gyr ago. There is no sign of recent/ongoing star formation in the last 1.5 Gyr. The mass fractions of the ancient and intermediate age stars are 34 and 66 per cent, respectively, and the total stellar mass is 4.2 × 106 M⊙. It is probable that the galaxy has not experienced an interaction with M31 in the past. We also discuss star formation processes of dSphs KKR 25, KKs 03, as well as dTr KK 258. Their star formation histories were uniformly measured by us from HST/ACS observations. All the galaxies are situated well beyond the Local Group and the two dSphs KKR 25 and KKs 03 are extremely isolated. Evidently, the evolution of these objects has proceeded without influence of neighbours.

    Full Text Available Recent studies have suggested that endogenous angiogenesis inhibitor endostatin/collagen XVIII might play an important role in the secondary brain injury following traumatic brain injury (TBI. In this study, we measured endostatin/collagen XVIII concentrations serially for 1 week after hospitalization by using the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay method in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF of 30 patients with TBI and a Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS score of 8 or less on admission. There was a significant trend toward increased CSF levels of endostatin after TBI versus control from 72 h after injury. In patients with GCS score of 3–5, CSF endostatin concentration was substantially higher at 72 h after injury than that in patients with GCS score of 6–8 (P<0.05 and peaked rapidly at day 5 after injury, but decreased thereafter. The CSF endostatin concentration in 12 patients with an unfavorable outcome was significantly higher than that in 18 patients with a favorable outcome at day 5 (P=0.043 and day 7 (P=0.005 after trauma. Receiver operating characteristic curve analysis suggested a reliable operating point for the 7-day CSF endostatin concentration predicting poor prognosis to be 67.29 pg/mL. Our preliminary findings provide new evidence that endostatin/collagen XVIII concentration in the CSF increases substantially in patients with sTBI. Its dynamic change may have some clinical significance on the judgment of brain injury severity and the assessment of prognosis. This trial is registered with the ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01846546.

Los Borbones, en su afán centralizador, trataron de adaptar los municipios a un modelo común pero no se apreciaron —a tenor de la opinión de algunos historiadores del Derecho— cambios cualitativos en la organización local. No obstante, todavía faltan estudios sobre el gobierno municipal en esta centuria que permitan mayores precisiones y puntualizaciones.

  20. Magnetic Fusion Energy Plasma Interactive and High Heat Flux Components: Volume 5, Technical assessment of critical issues in the steady state operation of fusion confinement devices

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1988-01-01

    Critical issues for the steady state operation of plasma confinement devices exist in both the physics and technology fields of fusion research. Due to the wide range and number of these issues, this technical assessment has focused on the crucial issues associated with the plasma physics and the plasma interactive components. The document provides information on the problem areas that affect the design and operation of a steady state ETR or ITER type confinement device. It discusses both tokamaks and alternative concepts, and provides a survey of existing and planned confinement machines and laboratory facilities that can address the identified issues. A universal definition of steady state operation is difficult to obtain. From a physics point of view, steady state is generally achieved when the time derivatives approach zero and the operation time greatly exceeds the characteristic time constants of the device. Steady state operation for materials depends on whether thermal stress, creep, fatigue, radiation damage, or power removal are being discussed. For erosion issues, the fluence and availability of the machine for continuous operation are important, assuming that transient events such as disruptions do not limit the component lifetimes. The panel suggests, in general terms, that steady state requires plasma operation from 100 to 1000 seconds and an availability of more than a few percent, which is similar to the expectations for an ETR type device. The assessment of critical issues for steady state operation is divided into four sections: physics issues; technology issues; issues in alternative concepts; and devices and laboratory facilities that can address these problems.

  1. Reformismo cristiano y tolerancia en España a finales del siglo XVIII

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Domínguez Fernández, Juan Pablo

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available The expansion of the ideal of religious tolerance in 18th century Europe was not the exclusive work of deists or atheists. Many Christians then argued that intolerance was contrary to the Gospel and the spirit of the early centuries of the Church. The censorship of the Inquisition and the absence of religious minorities prevented the discussions on tolerance taking place in countries such as France or Austria from occurring south of the Pyrenees. Even so, Christian arguments in favour of religious freedom appeared, albeit stealthily, in 18th century Spain and were reflected in the texts of some Spanish reformers.La expansión del ideal de tolerancia religiosa en la Europa del siglo XVIII no fue obra exclusiva de deístas o ateos. Muchos cristianos defendieron por entonces que la intolerancia era contraria al Evangelio y al espíritu de los primeros siglos de la Iglesia. La labor censoria de la Inquisición y la ausencia de minorías religiosas impidieron que los debates sobre la tolerancia desarrollados en países como Francia o Austria se reprodujeran al sur de los Pirineos. Aun así, los argumentos cristianos en favor de la libertad religiosa entraron, aunque fuese a hurtadillas, en la España del siglo XVIII y se reflejaron en los textos de algunos reformistas españoles.

    Full Text Available At the beginning of the 18th Century the indigenous people of Lima were accorded permission to celebrate the Spanish kings in a segregated group. The criollo elites expected them to represent their old kings in the demostrations, thus taking part in the exaltation of the Peruvian history. The descriptions of the limeño festivities, which show that the costumes of the Incas in the masquerades were highly hibridisized and baroque, allow us to analyse the characteristics of the Inca renaissance in the 18th Century. The costume played a basic role in the rehabilitation of the old Peruvian kings in the Colonial society.

    Al principio del siglo XVIII, se les otorgó a los indios de Lima la posibilidad de festejar a los monarcas españoles en grupo aparte. De ellos se esperaba que representasen a sus antiguos monarcas en desfiles o mascaradas y participaran por consiguiente, animados por las elites criollas, en la exaltación de la historia peruana. Fuertemente mestizada y apropiada a los gustos barrocos, la indumentaria de los incas de las mascaradas descrita en las relaciones de fiestas limeñas nos permite analizar las características del renacimiento incaico del siglo XVIII y ver cómo la vestimenta desempañaba un papel fundamental en la rehabilitación de los antiguos monarcas peruanos en la sociedad colonial.

    Full Text Available En este artículo se plantea una aproximación a las luchas por el control y el acceso al agua entre las élites regionales hispanas y criollas y los pueblos de indios de la jurisdicción de Tula, durante el siglo XVIII. Una lucha que, en definitiva, hundía sus raíces en las nuevas perspectivas económicas regionales, provocadas por el descenso de la actividad ganadera. De esta manera, hacia el siglo XVIII la economía regional volteó la mirada hacia el cultivo de granos, sin dejar de lado la cría de ganado para las matanzas. Dentro de este contexto, las élites regionales, antiguas propietarias de grandes hatos de ganado, invirtieronimportantes capitales en la construcción de una infraestructura hidráulica (zanjas, presas, jagüeyes, encaminada al riego de los cultivos. Sin embargo, eran los pueblos indios quienes desde antaño habían controlado una parte importante de los recursos hídricos disponibles, por lo cual la confrontación fue el resultado inevitable del proceso.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN. Durante mucho tiempo la historiografía ha presentado la España del siglo XVIII como un paraíso idílico presidido por la concordia y en el que no ocurrieron hechos realmente serios. Nada más lejos de la realidad, pues existió una conflictividad social que no podemos ignorar. Con este artículo queremos contribuir a reforzar esta idea, constatando todos los hechos conflictivos ocurridos en La Mancha albacetense en los años 1765, tras la promulgación de la Real Pragmática liberalizadora del comercio de granos, y 1766, en el que, entre el clima de crispación general propiciado por el motín en Madrid, aparecen dos motines provinciales que ocupan un lugar importante en la historiografía española: Tobarra y Liétor. El primero, por ser el primer caso de sublevación después del motín madrileño de 1766, mientras que el segundo, ha sido considerado por algunos autores, como uno de los ejemplos más representativos de la conflictividad social decimonónica. Esperamos que este estudio pueda contribuir, de algún modo, a un mejor conocimiento de la conflictividad social en la España del siglo XVIII en general, y de La Mancha Oriental en particular. Palabras claves: conflictividad social, motines, Mancha Oriental, siglo XVIII. ABSTRACT. For a long time the historiography has represented the eighteenth-century Spain as an idyllic paradise where concord and unimportant facts prevailed. Far from being true, the situation lived in Spain was marked by a social conflict that can not be ignored. In this article we want to reinforce this idea, noting all the conflicting facts that occurred in La Mancha of Albacete in the years 1765, following the promulgation of the Royal Pragmatic liberalization of trade in grains, and 1766, where the climate of tension between generally favored by the mutiny in Madrid, two provincial riots that occupy an important place in Spanish history: Tobarra and Liétor.

  15. Measurement Issues in Anthropometric Measures of Limb Volume Change in Persons at Risk for and Living with Lymphedema: A Reliability Study

    Full Text Available Understanding whether a true change has occurred during the process of care is of utmost importance in lymphedema management secondary to cancer treatments. Decisions about when to order a garment, start an exercise program, and begin or end therapy are based primarily on measurements of limb volume, based on circumferences taken by physiotherapists using a flexible tape. This study aimed to assess intra-rater and inter-rater reliability of measurements taken by physiotherapists of legs and arms with and without lymphedema and to evaluate whether there is a difference in reliability when measuring a healthy versus a lymphedematous limb. The intra-rater reliability of arm and leg measurements by trained physiotherapist is very high (scaled standard error of measurements (SEMs for an arm and a leg volume were 0.82% and 0.64%, respectively and a cut-point of 1% scaled SEM may be recommended as a threshold for acceptable reliability. Physiotherapists can rely on the same error when assessing lymphedematous or healthy limbs. For those who work in teams and share patients, practice is needed in synchronizing the measurements and regularly monitoring their inter-rater reliability.

Legalizaciones aplazadas, ventas desautorizadas, pagos pendientes, esclavos hipotecados y confusiones sobre el estado real del esclavo comercializado fueron situaciones que desataron enconadas disputas y pleitos judiciales que terminaron algunas veces con la declaratoria de redhibitoria, es decir, la anulación del contrato de venta y la devolución del esclavo. En vista de estos antecedentes, y con un ánimo preventivo, los negociantes se aseguraron de fijar en las escrituras de compraventa ciertas garantías o aclaraciones para no verse involucrados en tales litigios.

    Full Text Available Los cabildos de Antioquia, durante el siglo xviii, instaban a los habitantes de ciudades y villas a matar los cerdos callejeros. Este rasgo de violencia permite acercarse a la confrontación cotidiana entre la élite y los criadores de cerdos, un grupo social bajo. Los cabildos defendían un modelo de civilidad basado en estrategias de control social impulsadas por la administración borbónica. Los criadores de puercos, pobres en su mayoría, actuaban como colectivo defendiendo esta actividad, de donde obtenían unos pesos para subsistir. Con el frecuente ataque a los cerdos urbanos, y a sus dueños, la élite quiso impedir que ese sector de pobres adquiriera independencia económica, pues convenía sujetarlos, ocupando su mano de obra en labores mineras, agrícolas y ganaderas.

    Types XV and XVIII collagen belong to a unique and novel subclass of the collagen superfamily for which the authors have proposed the name the MULTIPLEXIN family. Members of this class contain polypeptides with multiple triple-helical domains separated and flanked by non-triple-helical regions. In this paper, they report the isolation of human cDNAs and genomic DNAs encoding the [alpha]1 (XVIII) collagen chain. Utilizing a genomic clone as probe, they have mapped the COL18A1 gene to chromosome 21q22.3 by fluorescence in situ hybridization. In addition, using an interspecific backcross panel, they have shown that the murine Col18a1 locus is on chromosome 10, close to the loci for Col6a1 and Col6a2. 16 refs., 5 figs.

    Sheila Mendonça de Souza

    2006-12-01

    Full Text Available Syphilis is a sexually or congenitally transmitted infectious disease with an impact on the health of human populations that has undergone important cycles in different countries and periods of history. Its presence was first diagnosed in Europe in the late XIV century. In Portugal, although there are various written records of the infection in the last centuries, there are rare references to it in archeological findings (mummified bodies are also rare in Portugal. The current study describes a probable case of congenital syphilis in an 18-month-old girl buried in the Church of the Sacrament in Lisbon. Her body, dating to the XVIII century, was found mummified together with dozens of others, still not studied. Symmetrical periostitis of the long bones, osteitis, metaphyseal lesions, left knee articular, and epiphyseal destruction, and a rarefied lesion with a radiological appearance compatible with Wimberger's sign all point to a diagnosis of congenital syphilis. The diagnosis of this severe form of the infection, possibly related to the cause of death in this upper-class girl, calls attention to the disease's presence in XVIII century Lisbon and is consistent with the intense mobilization at the time in relation to the risks posed by so-called heredosyphilis. It is the first case of congenital syphilis in a child reported in archeological findings in Portugal, and can be correlated with other cases in skeletons of adults buried in cemeteries in Lisbon (in the XVI to XVIII centuries and Coimbra (XIX century. Finally, this finding highlights the need to study the entire series of mummified bodies in the Church of the Sacrament in order to compare the paleopathological findings and existing historical documents on syphilis, so as to expand the paleoepidemiological knowledge of this infection in XVIII century Lisbon.

    Full Text Available Este ensayo observa las insurrecciones populares del siglo XVIII no como episodios casuales o aislados, sino como síntomas de un sentimiento generalizado de descontento social e intensificado conflicto. Sentimientos cuya intensidad se incrementó durante la segunda mitad del siglo XVIII y culminó con la Gran Rebelión de 1780-1783 en el sur de los Andes, el levantamiento en Quito de 1765 y la Rebelión de los Comuneros en la Nueva Granada de 1781. Este artículo examina los trabajos que hacen referencia a estas revueltas, reconociendo el hecho que la producción académica de las insurrecciones de finales del siglo XVIII en las colonias americanas forman parte de los amplios debates académicos que abordan las insurrecciones fuera del contexto Andino, e incorpora preguntas promulgadas por los estudiosos de las revueltas campesinas y el conflicto armado en otros campos y otros periodos.

    Environmental, human health and safety, socioeconomic and institutional impacts of future energy development for Federal Region 10, which includes the states of Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, are reported. It is concluded that the reduction in electric generating capacity of 568 MWe specified by the scenario for Alaska will not be realized because of institutional constraints and economic impacts. Development of 1000 MWe of geothermal generating capacity in Region 10 called for by the scenario will not be met by 1990. Besides technical feasibility and economic contraints, procedures in Oregon and Washington for securing leases and siting permits have not been fully developed. The location and impacts associated with construction and operation of oil and gas transshipment facilities such as the proposed pipeline to transport natural gas from fields in northern Alaska to the lower 48 states and the pipeline to transport Alaskan oil through Washington State to refineries in the Midwest are likely to be important issues in the Region. The addition of 7,951 MWe to the currently existing hydroelectric generating capacity of 29,990 MWe by 1990 will intensify competition among multiple uses of limited water resources of the Columbia and Snake River systems which drain Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Irrigation, recreation, transportation, maintenance of wildlife habitats and anadromous fisheries conflict and compete with hydroelectric power generation. Public opposition to further development of nuclear power currently exists and seems to be intensifying in light of recent events. The scenario-specified addition of 4,816 MWe of nuclear generating capacity to the Region's current nuclear capacity of 2,016 MWe may be jeopardized by this opposition; specifically the 1,174 MWe addition to Oregon's nuclear capacity may not be realized.

La enseñanza primaria religiosa estuvo dirigida básicamente por los jesuítas, que trataron pronto de sustraerse a la obligación contraída con el Ayuntamiento, cuando llegaron a Almagro; Íes relevaron en dicha obligación los hermanos hospitalarios de San Juan de Dios, que estaban muy necesitados de ayuda económica, por lo que aceptaron regentar las escuelas primarias. La enseñanza seglar estuvo a cargo de maestros, que en la mayoría de los casos ejercían sin titulación alguna, generando un evidente intrusismo profesional. En el último cuarto del siglo XVIII, con la aparición de maestros con titulación expedida por el Consejo de Castilla, se abrió un duro pleito entre unos y otros que se saldó en favor de los titulados, aunque siguieron funcionando las escuelas de maestros sin titulación. Por último se estudia la situación de los preceptores de Latinidad y Gramática, que preparaban a los alumnos para ingresar en las universidades españolas, así como la situación que padeció la Universidad de Almagro en el siglo xviii, en evidente proceso de decadencia, como otras muchas universidades menores.It is a question of a work where the elementary and most top education is analyzed in the 18th century, in so singular city, since it it (he, she was Almagro in this century, where it managed to be the capital of the province of the la Mancha.

Durante o século XVIII, documentos públicos ou privados deveriam ser executados segundo regras que atingiam tanto o texto quanto a ordem estética. Dos manuais da arte de escrever podem ser extraídos os padrões difundidos em cada época e as discussões que giravam em torno do ensino e do uso da caligrafia. Serão apresentados neste artigo os dois principais métodos de ensino da escrita magistral vigentes na Península Ibérica durante os séculos XVII e XVIII, cujas discordâncias motivaram um intenso debate entre seus defensores. De certa forma, a discussão refletia a preocupação com a inserção da caligrafia no grupo das artes liberais e, consequentemente, com o status dos profissionais envolvidos com a arte gráfica da palavra.PALAVRAS-CHAVES: Caligrafia; Ensino; Século XVIIIABSTRACT:The writing has certain sets of rules that must be followed to carry out its functions.

It will be presented here in this article the two main teaching methods of masterful writing current in the Iberian Peninsula during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, whose disagreements prompted an intense debate among its supporters.

In addition, the author calls attention to the most salient aspects of the union activity of cabinetmakers and joiners, such as membership of these artisans in a joint labor organization, their strategies to promote their craft as well as the union, the methods of examination used (with pieces selected beforehand and the important role played by cabinetmakers in value assessments of property, both for deeds of dowry and for postmortem inventories. The author's sources are documents found in the Archivo de Protocolos de Madrid which date to the years between 1740 through 1760. These documents significantly add new Information to the evidence already known about the activities of Madrid's woodwork craftsmen in the 18th century.

    Ante la idea generalizada de la influencia francesa en el mobiliario español con el advenimiento de los Borbones, se intenta apuntar la importancia creciente del mobiliario inglés en la primera mitad del siglo XVIII, al mismo tiempo que dar a conocer el mecanismo de las diversas actuaciones corporativas, desde la reunión en un solo gremio de ebanistas y ensambladores de nogal, su actividad para ejercer con mayor fortaleza su presencia en los foros ciudadanos, el sistema de exámenes con sus piezas determinadas de antemano hasta la importancia de los ebanistas en las labores de tasación, tanto en cartas de dote como en inventarios post mortem. Esta serie de documentos hallados en el Archivo Histórico de Protocolos de Madrid, relativos a las décadas de 1740-1760, sumándose a los ya publicados, irán completando el conocimiento sobre los ebanistas y ensambladores madrileños del siglo XVIII.

    Full Text Available Since the Renaissance, the Tiber River has been the object of the most unusual archaeological quests, driven mainly by fantastic medieval lore. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the excavations on the river intensified and were epitomized by the scientific atmosphere of the Enlightenment, even tough they resulted in little archaeological worth. In 1819, even the Spanish monarch Fernando VII almost became a Shareholder in one of these archaeological companies. After the Italian unification, many finds were discovered in the works done along the Tiber's urban region, of wich many are now in the Museo Nazionale Romano.Desde el Renacimiento el Tiber ha sido objeto de las más peregrinas búsquedas arqueológicas, emprendidas habitualmente sobre la base de fantásticos relatos medievales. En los siglos XVIII y XIX las excavaciones en el río se intensificaron y se dotaron del cientificismo propio de la Ilustración, siendo no obstante el fruto de estos trabajos muy escaso; en 1819, incluso el propio monarca español Fernando VII estuvo a punto de convertirse en accionista de una de estas empresas arqueológicas. Tras la Unificación italiana, las obras de estructuración del curso urbano del Tiber propiciaron finalmente numerosos hallazgos, muchos de los cuales se conservan en el Museo Nazionale Romano.

Remitido a la cárcel de Buenos Aires, el gobernador Vértiz dispuso inmediatamente una serie de diligencias para saber qué hacer con él. El expediente que entonces se formó contiene la opinión de los principales personajes de la campaña bonaerense y la declaración del propio Flamenco. Su análisis nos permite describir el mundo rural colonial rioplatense y las estrategias desplegadas por los españoles para controlar un territorio donde grupos indígenas mantuvieron su autonomía hasta mediados del siglo XIX.

    Full Text Available El discurso de la limpieza de sangre es esencial para la comprensión de los valores de las sociedades hispanas de la época colonial. En este artículo se muestra cómo un discurso originado en el continente europeo pasó a ser la base del sistema de estratificación social en el nuevo orden colonial y se analiza el impacto de la transferencia de ideas desde España a las sociedades coloniales, a partir del estudio del Colegio de Abogados de Caracas. El concepto de limpieza de sangre en la provincia de Caracas fue distinto del establecido en la metrópolis. En estas tierras, la limpieza de sangre fue preocupación de todos los grupos sociales que conformaban la provincia durante el siglo XVIII y elemento fundamental para que la élite criolla mantuviera el control de las instituciones civiles y eclesiásticas.

    Full Text Available Entre los siglos XV y XVIII los oriolanos persiguieron a lobos y pájaros. Buscaban el exterminio del predador para acabar con los desmanes en los rebaños de ganado y con el temor ancestral, revivido constantemente en cuentos y leyendas. Mataban pájaros porque su proliferación reducía las cosechas. Se trataba de controlar, cuando no eliminar, unos competidores desleales. A la historia del medioambiente le corresponde señalar no solo los fenómenos de transformación y degradación del espacio, también la relación antrópica con las demás especies. La relación hombre-lobos y pájaros, y aún las ratas, en la Orihuela de los siglos señalados, constituye un modelo de análisis que compete también al campo de las ciencias humanas.

    Full Text Available The article discusses the history of christianity in the Caucasus in the IV–XVIII centuries. The main attention is paid to the complex process of the formation and fate of christianity among the various peoples of the region, the role of Byzantine, Georgian and Russian christian missionaries. Among the sources there are used the pre-revolutionary materials on the history of christianity in the Caucasus, as well as scientific publications. The decision of research tasks is based on the principle of historicism. The problem of the spread of christianity in the Caucasus, while maintaining the pagan beliefs are seen as a consequence of specific socio-historical conditions, in the formation of which the important role was played by external factors, and also the conservative mentality of highlanders. In conclusion, the authors note that every of the caucasian peoples had its story of the spread and adoption of christianity in the Caucasus. On the one hand, the ancient christian Armenia and Georgia, relatively quickly emerging with paganism, on the other, the mountain tribes, who had no public began taking christianity in the reduced forms under the influence of Byzantium, Georgia, Russia with the broad preservation of pagan beliefs. Ultimately, under the influence of the first Crimean khans, and then the Ottoman Empire, these tribes have consistently converted to Islam.

"La Science des Ingénieurs...", signed by Bernard Forest de Belidor, a french man of catalan origin, mathematics teacher in La Fére Artillery School, member as well of the Scientific Societies of London and Prussia and a correspondent of the Paris Royal Academy of Sciences. In this book we will appreciate a firm direction change in two fundamental aspects of the technical culture of actual engineers: the way to dimension structures, starting from the numerical procedures and the organization of the processes in construction works In the following pages I want to introduce you into the contents of this treatise in its original version and in its castiílan particular translation. But, before this, I have also to explain the teatrise role in the disociation of two professions that, till this time. have share attitudes and competitivines: architecture and engineering, such as they were understood in the Renaissance distant years where the durability, stability and solidity of a building, watever it was, was preceded by a perfect execution, by the use of appropriated materials, and where the different parts were measured following a general plan of whole proportions and the search of balance elements. We will see how -based on the science of these XVIII century engineers- all those principies have to be explained through the nature of the algebraical reasons, the mechanical knowledge and the abstract understanding of the structural elements. It is worthwhile to point out that this work is a part of a much more important investigation concerning the transformations of the technical knowledge concerning engineering and architecture between XVI and XVIII centuries, as well in Europe as in America, insisting on the role played by the academies and schools, in one or the other ocean side.En 1729 aparece publicado en París el

    2009-11-01

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: En este artículo se analizan los principios ideológicos que inspiraron el proyecto de reforma del sistema de censura previa español, a finales del siglo XVIII. Para ello me centro en el estudio de varios documentos relacionados con la cuestión: por un lado, la propuesta elaborada por el Consejo de Castilla —la llamada Idea— y, por otro, el informe que realizó la Real Academia de la Historia, en contestación a la solicitud de dicho órgano y que se basaba en trece informes de académicos. Dedicaré, no obstante, unas páginas previas a exponer el contexto histórico de clara afirmación regalista que explica, a mi juicio, por qué dicha reforma se planteó en 1770 y no antes o después.ABSTRACT: The main goal of this article is to analyze the ideological principles behind the legal attempts to reform the system of previous censorship in Spain, in 1770. In order to do so I study and use several documents and primary sources related to the issue. On one hand, the so called Idea that is the report that the Consejo de Castilla sent to the Academies asking for a reply and on the other hand, the final report that the Royal Academy of History sent to the Consejo. This report was based on thirteen reports written by the academicians. I also dedicate a section of the article to explain the key historical elements that from my point of view contribute to a better understanding of why the reform was schedule in 1770 and not before of after that year.

    2011-09-01

    Full Text Available Changes to the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature are decided on every 6 years at Nomenclature Sections associated with International Botanical Congresses (IBC. The XVIII IBC was held in Melbourne, Australia; the Nomenclature Section met on 18-22 July 2011 and its decisions were accepted by the Congress at its plenary session on 30 July. Several important changes were made to the Code as a result of this meeting that will affect publication of new names. Two of these changes will come into effect on 1 January 2012, some months before the Melbourne Code is published. Electronic material published online in Portable Document Format (PDF with an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN or an International Standard Book Number (ISBN will constitute effective publication, and the requirement for a Latin description or diagnosis for names of new taxa will be changed to a requirement for a description or diagnosis in either Latin or English. In addition, effective from 1 January 2013, new names of organisms treated as fungi must, in order to be validly published, include in the protologue (everything associated with a name at its valid publication the citation of an identifier issued by a recognized repository (such as MycoBank. Draft text of the new articles dealing with electronic publication is provided and best practice is outlined.To encourage dissemination of the changes made to the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants, this article will be published in BMC Evolutionary Biology, Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society, Brittonia, Cladistics, MycoKeys, Mycotaxon, New Phytologist, North American Fungi, Novon, Opuscula Philolichenum, PhytoKeys, Phytoneuron, Phytotaxa, Plant Diversity and Resources, Systematic Botany and Taxon.

    Full Text Available RESUMO As atuais aulas de ciências, geralmente, não apresentam discussões referentes à aspectos da natureza da ciência, por exemplo, como uma teoria se desenvolve com o tempo e a influência de fatores não-racionais na sua construção. Tais aspectos são relevantes na hora do aluno desenvolver uma visão mais adequada na sua compreensão de como uma teoria ou modelo é construído. Além disso, as abordagens mais tradicionais, também, já não garantem a aprendizagem de teorias físicas. Com a inserção de discussões, que envolvam a História e a Filosofia da Ciência (HFC, os alunos poderão vivenciar o desenvolvimentos de teorias físicas e, também, realizar estudos sobre a natureza da ciência, colocando em evidência aspectos não abordados nas práticas mais tradiconais. Este estudo é baseado em uma pesquisa bibliográfica, que contempla a história da óptica, e, em especial, a controvérsia existente em relação a natureza da luz com destaque a influência newtoniana para a aceitação da teoria corpuscular no século XVIII. Neste trabalho problematizaremos uma visão ingênua do desenvolvimento histórico da ciência, onde, geralmente, ela é vista de forma contínua e fatores não-racionais são excluídos da construção de teorias físicas. PALAVRAS-CHAVE: história e filosofia da ciência, popularização na ciência, Isaac Newton.

    Knobloch syndrome (KS) is a rare disease characterized by severe ocular alterations, including vitreoretinal degeneration associated with retinal detachment and occipital scalp defect. The responsible gene, COL18A1, has been mapped to 21q22.3, and, on the basis of the analysis of one family, we have demonstrated that a mutation affecting only one of the three COL18A1 isoforms causes this phenotype. We report here the results of the screening of both the entire coding region and the exon-intron boundaries of the COL18A1 gene (which includes 43 exons), in eight unrelated patients with KS. Besides 20 polymorphic changes, we identified 6 different pathogenic changes in both alleles of five unrelated patients with KS (three compound heterozygotes and two homozygotes). All are truncating mutations leading to deficiency of one or all collagen XVIII isoforms and endostatin. We have verified that, in exon 41, the deletion c3514-3515delCT, found in three unrelated alleles, is embedded in different haplotypes, suggesting that this mutation has occurred more than once. In addition, our results provide evidence of nonallelic genetic heterogeneity in KS. We also show that the longest human isoform (NC11-728) is expressed in several tissues (including the human eye) and that lack of either the short variant or all of the collagen XVIII isoforms causes similar phenotypes but that those patients who lack all forms present more-severe ocular alterations. Despite the small sample size, we found low endostatin plasma levels in those patients with mutations leading to deficiency of all isoforms; in addition, it seems that absence of all collagen XVIII isoforms causes predisposition to epilepsy.

    Full Text Available El ensayo examina el proceso judicial de una monja en Cuenca, a inicios del siglo XVIII, que buscaba regresar a la "vida mundana" y anular su profesión y hábito. Este caso permite mostrar la mentalidad barroca, acercarse a la construcción cultural del cuerpo y a la situación de las mujeres. A partir de los fragmentos disponibles del juicio, el artículo sugiere que Martina Catalina de Barzallo reivindicó el retomo a la vida mundana y el rechazo a las prácticas coercitivas propias de la vida monástica.

    En este trabajo se quiere mostrar cómo funcionaban las alcaldías mayores en una provincia de la frontera novohispana, Sonora. Provincia que hasta 1732 va a depender del gobierno de la nueva Vizcaya, por lo tanto los alcaldes mayores tenían como autoridad superior a tal gobernador, aunque para todo lo judicial dependían de la Audiencia neogallega. Esta doble dependencia originó a lo largo del siglo XVIII muchos conflictos de intereses, que los propios alcaldes manejaron para su propio interés ...

Esta es la conclusión que se puede sacar de las investigaciones realizadas hasta ahora sobre la transición demográfica en el medio urbano. Comparando Ginebra con Rouen, Alfred Perrenoud logró demostrar que la alta burguesía, tanto suiza como normanda, practicaba el control de la natalidad en 1650 (Perrenoud, 1990, y esto antes incluso que empezara a bajar seriamente la tasa de mortalidad (Bardet, 1990. Tanto en Rouen como en Ginebra, el control de la descendencia se extendió luego rápidamente al conjunto de la población, como lo demuestra la caída regular de la fecundidad. A estos dos principales modelos testigos del comportamiento innovador de algunas familias urbanas de Europa occidental en los siglos XVII y XVIII, cabe agregar el de Reims, ciudad de los Reyes de Francia ubicada en Champagne con 30.000 habitantes, famosa desde luego por sus vinos espumantes después de 1700, pero también por sus tejidos de lana.

XV to initiative of Franciscans preachers, with the objective to provide loans on pignoratious guarantees to an interest lower than the demanded by the moneylenders. This type of institution propagates immediately by all Italian geography, and going beyond its borders will arrive at other European zones, among them to the Iberian Peninsula. Within the Hispanic monarchy in the beginnings of century XVIII the foundation of Monte de Piedad of Madrid takes place, by Piquer Father who will be inheriting of the spirit and objectives of primitive Italian predecessors and will include some new features as a result of the devotion of their founder and the particularities of that time. This Monte will serve as a model for other similar institutions as much in the peninsula as in the American virreinatos. With time, a series of new foundations will take place, bearing the same denomination (all will take by name Monte de Piedad, but with important differences in their constitutions and aims. These foundations arise as much in ecclesiastical as secular scope. The analysis of some of these institutions is the objective of the present study, differentiating ecclesiastical and secular foundations (in these last ones a further difference is made for the ones founded by members of the nobility.

    Full Text Available The article discloses a feature of graphic ornamental motives of embroidery in clothing and household decoration, typical for the North-West region of Russia in the XVIII century. The semiotic status of the Russian clothing and household decorations with decorative ornaments embroidery with figurative ornamental motives as a group of functionally related items have remained very high, having both utilitarian and sign pragmatics for millennia. Despite the sociohistorical processes, changing the external shape of the suit, the symbolism of embroidery patterns remained unchanged and continued to exist until the twentieth century. In connection with the political events, readier subjects and fine motives can be traced in the Russian folk embroidery due to the resettlement of Novgorod in the XV century. This is the way from Novgorod to Arkhangelsk and the path from Veliky Novgorod to Vologda where Novgorod settled, keeping their culture. It is proved, that there is a correlation between the zoomorphic pendants, amulets female ornaments of the tenth century and plot embroidered with iconic ornamental motives of the North-West region of Russia. People piously observed the laws of their fathers and grandfathers. The embroidery from generation to generation has been portraying images of ancient mythology. The most common images in the northern Russian embroidery were the goddess of Mokos, Rozhanitsy, birds, horses, moose, deer, and wild animals and plants, depicted in subject compositions. The zoomorphic motives are also the images of flying dragons, symbolizing lightning, they are often found in Russian folk tales. Fire Dragon was considered the protector of property and fire. The people’s attitude to fire was special: it was called "You sir, the King-fire", and it was regards’ a god. One of the main roles in the embroidery is given to the technical side. Counted Russian embroidery stitches do not only recreate the image, but also express its

    Full Text Available This paper discusses the territorial growth of a small Hispanic-Creole town: Santa Fe de la Vera Cruz, as well as the modifications of its estates, Indian towns, parishes, chapels, and forts along during the three last decades of the eighteenth century. Changes took place not only due to strategic migrations of people looking for settlements but also by institutional reform (the Bourbon Reforms, facilitated by the vicinity of viceroyalty officials that allowed elites to protect their interests. It is thus possible to recognize a frontier policy generated by negociations of subordinate sectors with elite families at a time of cattle raising expansion, and consequently, of a growing demand for land. In addition, city authorities struggled to settle population within us district and thus set their limits in front of neighboring town councils.

    El trabajo versa sobre el crecimiento espacial de una pequeña aldea hispanocriolla —Santa Fe de la Vera Cruz— y los reacomodamientos que sus pagos, pueblos de indios, curatos, capillas y fuertes tuvieron en las tres últimas décadas del siglo XVIII. Tales adecuaciones se produjeron tanto por estrategias de la población flotante en búsqueda de asentamiento, como por cambios institucionales —en el marco de reformas borbónicas y debido a la cercanía de las autoridades virreinales— con que los vecinos “hidalgos” protegieron sus intereses. Así se reconoce una política de fronteras que resulta de las negociaciones de los sectores subalternos con las familias de elite en un momento de expansión ganadera y consecuente aumento de la demanda por tierras. Asimismo, las autoridades de la ciudad lucharon por fijar población en su jurisdicción a los fines de marcar su espacio frente a los avances de cabildos vecinos.

    Full Text Available En este trabajo nos proponemos abocarnos a algunas de las manifestaciones de la religiosidad en una jurisdicción que perteneció a un área periférica del imperio español, como lo fue la gobernación del Tucumán de la cual Salta formaba parte. Para ello nos centraremos en el tratamiento de tres casos de devociones marianas que emergen durante el XVIII. Dos de ellos se sitúan en la primera mitad de la centuria y presentan la particularidad de ser locales. Podemos decir que son el resultado de resignificaciones a partir de las cuales los grupos del lugar elaboraron referentes cargados de sentidos válidos para sus entornos, se trata de los tributados a las vírgenes de las Lágrimas y de la Viña. En contraste, el tercero, profesado en honor a la Virgen de Nieva, es traído desde España hacia las últimas décadas del siglo. Los orígenes relacionados a milagros fundantes en las dos situaciones iniciales también marcan una diferenciación importante en cuanto a su legitimación en la comunidad local. Igualmente, un aspecto a examinar es la amplitud alcanzada entre los grupos sociales, que en el caso de la Viña evidencia una base popular. La aparición de los otros tiene que ver con una intervención desde los sectores dominantes, la Compañía de Jesús en las Lágrimas y la burocracia borbónica en la de Nieva

El tema es relevante porque en ese momento, Chile era el principal polo vitivinícola de América y ejercía un liderazgo en la región. Se estudian las distintas formas de lagares, tanto los de cuero como los de adobe, cal y ladrillo; también se indaga en la evolución de la vasija vinaria, de la greda la madera. Los hornos botijeros ocuparon un lugar importante por su aporte a la fabricación de tinajas y botijas. Estos recipientes fueron como un icono característico de la viticultura del sur de América (en México la vasija no era de greda sino de madera, aún al comienzo de la industria vitivinícola. Posteriormente, a partir de la mitad de la centuria, comenzó la incorporación de vasija de madera (pipas y barriles en Chile. Durante cincuenta años éstas convivieron con los recipientes de greda, hasta comenzar a sustituirlos progresivamente en el siglo XIX. Este equipamiento hizo posible el desarrollo de una de las principales industrias que hubo en América española durante la época colonial y que, actualmente, sigue siendo la principal industria de Chile.

    Full Text Available Las bases de la herpetología moderna en general se establecieron en el siglo XVIII,particularmente durante la Ilustración y quienes hicieron la mayor contribución fueronfundamentalmente los naturalistas franceses. No obstante, en México se hicieron varias publicacionesde cierto relieve, en especial por los misioneros jesuitas y otros estudiosos de la Nueva España. Esinteresante mencionar que aun con la trascendencia de Linneo para la biología moderna, algunoshistoriadores de los anfibios y los reptiles señalan que por lo menos para la herpetofauna de Méxicoexistió una importante regresión, ya que era mucho mayor el conocimiento que había dejadoFrancisco Hernández en el siglo XVI. Las contribuciones de los autores de la escuela francesa comoBuffon y quienes lo sucedieron como Lacepéde y Daudin, fueron los grandes pilares de laherpetología o estudios de los anfibios y los reptiles de la manera en que la conocemos en laactualidad. Las bases establecidas en el siglo XVIII sirvieron para que con la apertura de México almundo a partir de su independencia, se entrara en una de las etapas de mayor relevancia para laherpetología del país.

    This volume, the second of two such volumes, contains sector-specific guidance in support of the General Guidelines for the voluntary reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration. This voluntary reporting program was authorized by Congress in Section 1605(b) of the Energy Policy Act of 1992. The General Guidelines, bound separately from this volume, provide the overall rationale for the program, discuss in general how to analyze emissions and emission reduction/carbon sequestration projects, and address programmatic issues such as minimum reporting requirements, time parameters, international projects, confidentiality, and certification. Together, the General Guidelines and the guidance in these supporting documents will provide concepts and approaches needed to prepare the reporting forms. This second volume of sector-specific guidance covers the transportation sector, the forestry sector, and the agricultural sector.

  9. Censura gubernativa, Iglesia e inquisición en el siglo XVIII

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Caro López, Ceferino

    2004-12-01

    Full Text Available Government censorship in Eighteenth Century Spain was another means of the Spanish Enlightenment policy. Until mid-century both powers of Church and State were balanced; from Charles Ill's reign on the censorship of the Consejo de Castilla tried to control and restrict not only the traditional power of the Inquisition, but also the intellectual output of the country, either ideological —criticism on the Crown's policy— or cultural-publishing religious works. It is important to notice that many members of the clergy collaborated with the State in that task; and also that, after the French Revolution, the Inquisition regained its previous role. In the last decade of the Seventeenth century the irreconcilable clash between the advocates and the critics of the Inquisition became evident.

    La práctica de la censura gubernativa fue, en el siglo XVIII, un instrumento más de la política regalista de la Ilustración española. Si hasta mediados del siglo se mantuvieron estables las relaciones de poder entre Iglesia y Estado, a partir del reinado de Carlos III se nota cómo la censura del Consejo de Castilla intentaba vigilar y limitar no sólo el tradicional poder de la Inquisición, sino también la producción ideológica —crítica a la política de la Corona— y cultural-edición de obras de religión. Es importante observar que muchos hombres de Iglesia colaboraron con el Estado en esas tareas; y también que tras la Revolución Francesa la Inquisición volvió a asumir el papel que había jugado con anterioridad. En el último decenio del Setecientos se pone de manifiesto el enfrentamiento irreconciliable entre los partidarios y los detractores de la Inquisición.

El mantenimiento de los signos externos de la religiosidad y los cambios en la civilización material tenían igual cabida en la cotidianidad de aquella Castilla semiilustrada.La gran cuestión giraba en torno a la necesaria mezcla de los cuidados espirituales y mundanos para lograr una cómoda felicidad terrena junto a la ansiada salvación. «Nada de lo divino era extraño; todo era religión»; pero también era una realidad en la época el ideal: «viva la industria de la persona».ABSTRACT: This paper highlights two fundamental closely connected developments of the Eighteenth century in Castile, namely: that many collective religious practices became deeply rooted in the family household; also, that a relationship took shape between domestic experiences and the outer forms of the people’s daily existence.Thus the reiteration of sacralized burial rites and the consumption of clothing are analysed, as well as the effect of both on popular culture practices. In the everyday life of semi-Enlightened Castile, the preservation of external signs of religiousness was on an equal footing with the evolution of material culture. It was a matter of attaining the necessary mixing of spiritual and worldly cares so as to attain comfortable, earthly happiness along with the much longed-for salvation. «Nada de lo divino era extraño; todo era religión», but no less true was the motto: «viva la industria de la persona».

    Full Text Available This study of certain negative models of sainetes [afterpieces] from the 18th century reveals not only a continuity of comic stereotypes, but also their relationship to the ideals of behaviour of the era: the authority of the husband, the submissiveness of the wife, thriftiness in managing household finances, etc. Afterpieces join other literary genres (journalism, satirical poetry and the moral essay in ridiculing those who are involved in the practice of cortejo and who readily adopt new forms of social behavior, fashions, foreign dances, etc., in contrast to traditional ways and tastes. Examples taken from Antonio de Zamora, Agramont, Ramón de la Cruz, Vázquez and González del Castillo are used to illustrate this reticence towards changes in mentality of a new culture of leisure, as well as to observe it a contrario: its “feminization”, its frivolity, and its uselessness.El estudio de ciertos modelos negativos del teatro breve del siglo XVIII revela no sólo la continuidad cómica de los tipos, sino también su relación con los ideales de conducta coetáneos: la autoridad del marido, la discreción de la mujer, el cuidado de la economía familiar... Los sainetes se unen a otros géneros literarios (el periodismo, la poesía satírica y el ensayo de carácter moral en la ridiculización de quienes practican el cortejo y aplauden nuevas formas de sociabilidad, las modas y los bailes extranjeros, etc. frente a la conducta y los gustos tradicionales. Ejemplos tomados de Antonio de Zamora, Agramont, Ramón de la Cruz, Vázquez y González del Castillo sirven para argumentar tales reticencias ante el cambio de mentalidades de una nueva cultura del ocio, así como para observarlo a contrario: su “afeminación”, su frivolidad y su inutilidad.

    Full Text Available La Real Hacienda española del siglo XVIII se caracteriza por una falta de flexibilidad que impide su adecuación a las necesidades cambiantes del momento. No procede ésta ni de una falta de conocimientos técnicos, ni de una supuesta timidez de los dirigentes, sino del hecho de que los condicionantes materiales y cognitivos que conforman en aquel momento el funcionamiento de todas las haciendas estatales europeas imponen estrechos límites al desenvolvimiento de las mismas, a menos de insertar el núcleo institucional propio de la administración de Hacienda en un contexto político que garantice una colaboración sin reserva de las clases pudientes del reino, dando por esta vía flexibilidad al conjunto. Lo consiguió Inglaterra. Imitarla implicaba desechar el modelo absolutista que los Borbones querían imponer. Las reformas de la Real Hacienda de principios de siglo, fueron un acierto técnico; pero al reducir la participación de las élites del reino en el sistema, hicieron aún más difícil la solución del dilema.AbstractThe most characteristic feature of Spain’s eighteenth century Real Hacienda was an inflexibility that prevented it from keeping up with changing needs. This inflexibility did not stem from a lack of technical knowledge or supposed timidity of the leaders but rather the material and cognitive constraints impinging on all Europe’s public finance systems at that time. This hobbled them unless they managed to strike up some sort of working relationship of unreserved collaboration with the powerful classes and thus imbue the whole set-up with flexibility. England managed to do so. Emulating this model would imply eschewing the absolutist model that the Bourbons wished to impose. The early-century reforms of the Real Hacienda were a shrewd step, but trimming the participation of the elites of the realm made the dilemma even more difficult to solve.

    2015-05-01

    Kazan Federal University has held the annual International Youth School "Coherent Optics and Optical Spectroscopy" since 1997. The choice of the topic is not accidental. Kazan is the home of photon echo which was predicted at Kazan Physical-Technical Institute in 1963 by Prof. U.G. Kopvil'em and V.R. Nagibarov and observed in Columbia University by N.A. Kurnit, I.D. Abella, and S.R. Hartmann in 1964. Since then, photon echo has become a powerful tool of coherent optical spectroscopy and optical information processing, which have been developed here in Kazan in close collaboration between Kazan Physical-Technical Institute and Kazan Federal University. The main subjects of the XVIII International Youth School are: Nonlinear and coherent optics; Atomic and molecular spectroscopy; Coherent laser spectroscopy; Problems of quantum optics; Quantum theory of radiation; and Nanophotonics and Scanning Probe Microscopy. The unchallenged organizers of that school are Kazan Federal University and Kazan E.K. Zavoisky Physical-Technical Institute. The rector of the School is Professor Myakzyum Salakhov, and the vice-rector is Professor Vitaly Samartsev. The International Youth Scientific School "Coherent Optics and Optical Spectroscopy" follows the global pattern of comprehensive studies of matter properties and their interaction with electromagnetic fields. Since 1997 more than 100 famous scientists from the USA, Germany, Ukraine, Belarus and Russia have given plenary lecture presentations. Here over 1000 young scientists had an opportunity to participate in lively discussions about the latest scientific news. Many young people have submitted interesting reports on photonics, quantum electronics, laser physics, quantum optics, traditional optical and laser spectroscopy, non-linear optics, material science and nanotechnology. Here we are publishing the fullsize papers prepared from the most interesting lectures and reports selected by the Program Committee of the School. The

    Building on a technical result by Brunnemann and Rideout on the spectrum of the Volume operator in Loop Quantum Gravity, we show that the dimension of the space of the quadrivalent states --with finite-volume individual nodes-- describing a region with total volume smaller than $V$, has \\emph{finite} dimension, bounded by $V \\log V$. This allows us to introduce the notion of "volume entropy": the von Neumann entropy associated to the measurement of volume.

    Full Text Available El noroccidente amazónico, en especial la gobernación de Quixos, fue una de las más ignotas regiones de América del Sur durante el siglo XVIII. Sus jurisdicciones, dependientes en parte de la Real Audiencia de Quito, no gozaron de suficiente atención por parte de la administración monárquica; por tanto, la dominación del territorio y sus habitantes originarios no pudo concretarse en términos absolutos debido a las dificultades supuestas por la resistencia indígena frente a unas estrategias de sometimiento poco consecuentes y evidentemente desarticuladas de las políticas hispánicas para los territorios fronterizos.

A pesar de los cambios introducidos por las conquistas inca y española, el trabajo descubre una importante línea de continuidad de los linajes femeninos en determinadas organizaciones étnicas. Encuentra que las mujeres negociaron con el poder colonial y con otros caciques por medio de estrategias que incluyeron habilidad e inteligencia para jugar con el derecho español y con la tradición indígena, la movilización de elementos económicos y simbólicos, y la manipulación del mestizaje.

    Full Text Available This article attempts to make known the Epistolary, up to now inedited, of Sister Josefa de los Dolores Peña y Lillo, chilean dominican nun from the XVIII th century. Her text constituted by sixty five letters, addressed to her father confessor, the jesuit Manuel Alvarez. These letters are kept in the Archive of the Dominican Monastery of Santa Rosa de Lima in Santiago, Chile. The letters seem a manifestation of confessional discourse which the nuns had to write by order of their father confessors or ecclesiastical autorities. However, the Epistolary analysis reveals the transformations of that discoursive pattern, which Sor Josefa's writing constitutes itself in the support of a selfknowing process and in a construction of woman identity, which is not recognized only in her religious vocation and virtues, but also in her knowing capacity, wisdom and words management.

El efímero proyecto colonizador español del reino miskitu, que se implementó desarrollando una diplomacia de fronteras con el fin de asegurar la lealtad del rey miskitu, dependió en gran medida de la historia de amor entre uno de los jefes indios principales y su cautiva española.

    . We describe the pattern of dental development of Hominid XVIII from the Middle Pleistocene Sima de los Huesos (SH) site of the Sierra de Atapuerca (Burgos, Spain). As expected, this pattern is similar to that of modern humans. A delay of development of the lower and upper canines was observed. In contrast, the relative advanced development of the lower second molars and, especially, the upper and lower third molars is noteworthy. This latter feature seems to be common in Pleistocene hominids, and suggests that the pattern of dental development evolved in the genus Homo during the Pleistocene. In European Middle Pleistocene hominids, this pattern probably was facilitated by the extra space available in the mandible and maxilla for developing teeth. Copyright 2001 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

On the one hand, it analyses the image that some foreign travelers offered about their travels in Galicia, and, on the other hand, it studies the state of the ground transportation during the period. The foreign testimonies about the Galician region were short compared with other parts of the peninsula.

  13. Phytoglobin: a novel nomenclature for plant globins accepted by the globin community at the 2014 XVIII conference on Oxygen-Binding and Sensing Proteins [version 1; referees: 2 approved

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available Hemoglobin (Hb is a heme-containing protein found in the red blood cells of vertebrates. For many years, the only known Hb-like molecule in plants was leghemoglobin (Lb. The discovery that other Hb-like proteins existed in plants led to the term “nonsymbiotic Hbs (nsHbs” to differentiate them from the Lbs. While this terminology was adequate in the early stages of research on the protein, the complexity of the research in this area necessitates a change in the definition of these proteins to delineate them from red blood cell Hb. At the 2014 XVIII Conference on Oxygen-Binding and Sensing Proteins, the group devoted to the study of heme-containing proteins, this issue was discussed and a consensus was reached on a proposed name change. We propose Phytoglobin (Phytogb as a logical, descriptive name to describe a heme-containing (Hb-like protein found in plants. It will be readily recognized by the research community without a prolonged explanation of the origin of the term. The classification system that has been established can essentially remain unchanged substituting Phytogb in place of nsHb. Here, we present a guide to the new nomenclature, with reference to the existing terminology and a phylogenetic scheme, placing the known Phytogbs in the new nomenclature.

Legalizaciones aplazadas, ventas desautorizadas, pagos pendientes, esclavos hipotecados y confusiones sobre el estado real del esclavo comercializado fueron situaciones que desataron enconadas disputas y pleitos judiciales que terminaron algunas veces con la declaratoria de redhibitoria, es decir, la anulación del contrato de venta y la devolución del esclavo. En vista de estos antecedentes, y con un ánimo preventivo, los negociantes se aseguraron de fijar en las escrituras de compraventa ciertas garantías o aclaraciones para no verse involucrados en tales litigios. This paper focuses on the analysis of the conflicts that revolved around the buying of slaves in northeast New Granada during the 18th century. Deferred legalization, unauthorized sales, pending payments, mortgaged slaves, confu-sion about the real state of the slave traded, were situations that triggered bitter disputes and lawsuits ended sometimes with the declaration of rescission, that is, the cancellation of the contract of sale and the return of the slave. Given this background, traders were careful to place certain warranties or clarifications into the deed of sale to avoid being involved in such litigation.

    Full Text Available El artículo se refiere al Epistolario de una monja chilena del siglo XVIII, sor Josefa de los Dolores Peña y Lillo, y se centra en la consideración de la imagen mística de la "bodega del amor" que en el texto se transforma en "retrete del amor". A propósito de ello, se establece la vinculación del Epistolario con la tradición de la literatura mística española y se proponen sentidos para el relieve de lo íntimo y privado que esa transformación confiere a la imagen mística tradicionalThis article refers to the Epistolary of a Chilean nun of the 18th Century, Sister Josefa de los Dolores Peña y Lillo. It centers on the consideration of the mystical image of the "Love's storeroom", which in the text is transformed into the "Love privy". In relation to it, a link between the Epistolary and the tradition of the Spanish mystical literature is discussed, while different senses are suggested for the highlighting of the private and intimate which that transformation confers upon the traditional mystical image

  13. Las reformas fiscales novohispanas del siglo XVIII en sus dimensiones históricas múltiples

    2016-10-01

    Full Text Available Partiendo de un análisis de las dimensiones del reformismo en el virreinato novohispano a través de la amplia bibliografía cubriendo casi todo el siglo XVIII completo, este estudio analiza las dimensiones políticas del reformismo en sus distintas fases, desde Felipe V hasta Carlos IV. Insistiendo particularmente en el período de la visita de José de Gálvez, el estudio parte de la hipótesis de que los conflictos en torno a estas reformas versan en el fondo sobre si debería continuar el régimen imperial, heredado del período de los habsburgos y condensada en órden legal en la Recopilación de las Leyes de Indias de 1680/1, o si la cohesión de la monarquía transatlántica exigía el cambio a un régimen de gobierno territorial. A pesar de las reformas de Carlos III y sus ministros, el dilema se mantiene hasta el final del siglo y explica en gran medida que, a pesar del cúmulo de reformas, nunca se decide de forma clara esta alternativa subyacente de las reformas.

    Full Text Available Las sociedades nativas de las pampas reconocieron la existencia de tres tipos de comerciantes: nampulcan , pulperú y huincá huitrán . El primero viajaba por los territorios de distintas parcialidades indígenas; el segundo ofrecía en los campamentos indios las mercancías traídas de la frontera; y el restante se adentraba en espacios controlados por los hispano-criollos, visitando sus poblaciones. La diferenciación entre quienes recorrían la tierra y los que llegaban hasta pueblos y ciudades ( warria refleja una experiencia histórica que vinculaba el contacto interétnico con situaciones de mayor riesgo. Los huincá huitrán eran figuras ambiguas, capaces de mediar exitosamente entre mundos diferentes y obtener bienes necesarios o deseados, pero simultáneamente constituirse en una fuente de grave peligro para las propias comunidades. Con frecuencia, su actividad solía ponerlos en contacto con enfermedades europeas y transformarlos en vectores involuntarios de las mismas. El artículo se centra en esta última cuestión y examina las vinculaciones existentes entre comercio fronterizo y recurrentes epidemias de la devastadora viruela durante la segunda mitad del siglo XVIII. Para ello, se utilizarán fuentes documentales interpretadas al amparo de abundante información contenida en estudios antropológicos, demográficos y lingüísticos.

  15. Angiotensin I-converting enzyme inhibitor peptides derived from the endostatin-containing NC1 fragment of human collagen XVIII.

    Extracellular matrix and soluble plasma proteins generate peptides that regulate biological activities such as cell growth, differentiation and migration. Bradykinin, a peptide released from kininogen by kallikreins, stimulates vasodilatation and endothelial cell proliferation. Various classes of substances can potentiate these biological actions of bradykinin. Among them, the best studied are bradykinin potentiating peptides (BPPs) derived from snake venom, which can also strongly inhibit angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) activity. We identified and synthesized sequences resembling BPPs in the vicinity of potential proteolytic cleavage sites in the collagen XVIII molecule, close to endostatin. These peptides were screened as inhibitors of human recombinant wild-type ACE containing two intact functional domains; two full-length ACE mutants containing only a functional C- or N-domain catalytic site; and human testicular ACE, a natural form of the enzyme that only contains the C-domain. The BPP-like peptides inhibited ACE in the micromolar range and interacted preferentially with the C-domain. The proteolytic activity involved in the release of BPP-like peptides was studied in human serum and human umbilical-vein endothelial cells. The presence of enzymes able to release these peptides in blood led us to speculate on a physiological mechanism for the control of ACE activities.

    Full Text Available En el Siglo de la Razón proliferaron los tratados dónde, por primera vez en la historia, se ponía de relieve la necesidad de educar de forma conveniente a las mujeres. Sin embargo, a pesar del reconocimiento que los Ilustrados otorgaron al sexo femenino, siguieron relegando a éstas a las paredes del hogar, exhortándoles a quedarse fuera del mundo del trabajo extra-doméstico, reservado sólo para los hombres de la familia. No obstante, la necesidad obligaba, y cuando los recursos u hombres de una casa escaseaban, la mujer tenía que salir a buscarse el sustento. Este es el caso de cientos de mujeres del Principado de Asturias, dónde, a mediados del siglo XVIII, la realidad femenina difería de lo que lo que se consideraba ideal. Este trabajo arrojará pues luz, en un campo hasta ahora desconocido: el del mundo profesional de las mujeres asturianas del Setecientos, dónde comprobaremos cómo en ocasiones llegaban a adquirir, gracias a su status profesional, papeles relevantes dentro de la sociedad.

    Full Text Available El artículo estudia cómo resolvía el Estado español el abastecimiento de armas en los siglos XVII y XVIII según la fórmula empresarial utilizada: qué tipo de empresario y qué tipo de organización empresarial. Ello lleva, en primer lugar, a una somera, pero necesaria descripción del sector, en concreto, la fabricación de cañones, de municiones y de fusiles. Esta parte incluye consideraciones sobre la organización empresarial y sobre los aspectos técnicos. El cuerpo del trabajo estudia la figura de los asentistas en cada sector: quiénes eran, qué otros negocios tenían, cuáles eran las características de los asientos, cuál era su relación con la Administración, si desarrollaban vínculos familiares, etc. Hasta 1760 dominó el abastecimiento por asiento, pero tras esa fecha el Estado cambió, en unos cuantos casos, hacia otras fórmulas, para pasar a ser un Estado fabricante. La última parte del artículo estudia esta época, sus circunstancias y las consecuencias que trajo en la producción, en el abastecimiento y en los empresarios.

    Full Text Available Cada país tiene sus casos historiográficos y Portugal no escapa a la regla. Tenemos muchos casos, muchas dudas, muchas historias. El dia 3 de septiembre de 1758 quedará para siempre envuelto en el misterio, lo que no impide que procuremos hacer la mayor luz posible sobre el tema del atentado contra el rey D. José, junto a la quinta de Belém. El atentado originó un proceso sumarísimo que en casi cuatro meses liquidó las Casas de Távora, Atouguia y Aveiro, así como a la Compañía de Jesús, con las monstruosas ejecuciones en el patíbulo de Belém del 13 de enero de 1759. Los inventarios y el secuestro de bienes ejecutados por orden de la Junta da Inconfidência, pueden servir tanto para medir la grandeza de las Casas, como también su situación social y financiera. Por estos inventarios se evidencia que estas Casas, que eran socialmente de las más consideradas en Portugal en el siglo XVIII, estaban bastante endeudadas. A mediados del siglo XVIII, la clase emergente de hombres de negocios y de prestamistas era, de hecho, la poseedora de los grandes activos de éstos y de otros Grandes de Portugal ya que los mismos servían de garantía a los créditos concedidos. Sin embargo, la aristocracia, profundamente endogámica, no se permitía ninguna contaminación con las clases adineradas, pero sin título. Este hecho nos sirve de punto de partida para llegar a conclusiones tangenciales de coyuntura para la década de los 50 del siglo XVIII, así como también de estructura, válidas éstas para todo el período pombalino, por lo que respecta a los Grandes de Portugal.Each country has its own histograph cases and Portugal is no exception. We have plenty of cases, lots of doubts and many histories. September 3 1758 will be forever a landmark shrouded in mistery, which doesn’t prevent our attempt to bring to the light, as much as possible, the attempt on D. José’s life, close to what was known as the place of Belém. The murder plot gave

  8. Peterburgskaya akademiya nauk v XVIII v. i ee pol' v rasprostranenii N'yutonianstva na kontinente Evropy %t Petersburg Academy of Sciences of 18th century and its role in the dissemination of Newtonianism in teh continental Europe

    Nevskaya, N. I.

    "Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica" by I. Newton were published and immediately recognized in England in 1687. However in countries of the continental Europe up to 1744 dominated the Cartesianism. Few newtonians were exposed to persecutions. Under such circumstances in 1724 Peter The Great decided to found an Academy of sciences in Russia. Since in this country there were no scientists, it was decided to invite them from the continental Europe. Two scientists arrived to Russia were newtonians. Other just were graduated from universities and had no hope for scientific work in their native lands. This situation turned out to be rather happy. The newtonians - J. N. Delisle and J. Hermann - trained the youth (D. Bernoulli, L. Euler, F. Ch. Mayer, G. W. Krafft, A. D. Kantemir, G. W. Richmann, M. V. Lomonosov, N. I. Popov, V. K. Trediakovskij, A. D. Krasilnikov etc.). They created the science of Russia and enhanced the doctrine of Newton. Their scientific works were printed in "Commentarii" in Latin. The newspaper "St.-Petersburg sheets" and its appendix, the magazine "Notes on the Sheet" (issued in Russian and German) - published the works of Petersburg Academy of sciences and promoted the Newtonianism. Everyone, who could read in German, used these materials. One of the readers was I. Kant. He relied upon these publications in preparing his lectures at Königsberg University, and then later, in working out the cosmogony theory. The works of J. N. Delisle, L. Euler and A. C. Clairaut on the theory of comets' and planets' movement justified Newtons doctrine. They also forced J. Cassini to accept the doctrine as well. Delisle's papers on the history of astronomy published there are helpful for understanding of the history of development the astronomy. The books of J. F. Weidler "A history of astronomy" (1741) and "Astronomical bibliography" (1755) formed the basis for all histories of astronomy in the XVIII-XIX centuries.

    Political and social issues have a major impact on how and when HIV infection and AIDS are treated, and were a major component of the meeting in Vienna. Many discussions were held on aspects such as epidemiology, risk behavior, public health, human rights, political responses to the epidemics challenge, social stigma and discrimination, use of and recommendations on the use of condoms and other preventive measures... However, the availability of drugs and/or other therapies is a crucial issue, and while it was not the main focus of attention during this year's international AIDS conference, it will be the focus of the following report. Indeed, intensive research for new antiretrovirals continues, with new active compounds presented during the poster sessions at the Wien Messe convention center, but a wide armamentarium is currently already available, including late-generation agents such as darunavir, etravirine, raltegravir and maraviroc that provide reliable effectiveness as rescue therapy for patients failing older drug-containing highly active regimens (Azkune Galparsoro, H. et al., Abst THPE0141). All information across the meeting related to therapies for HIV infection are briefly reviewed in the following report, which complements and guides through the extensive information available on the organizing society's website.

    Full Text Available Although the urban development in America was not exclusive of the European colonization, the foundation of towns and cities constituted a specific politics of conquest and colonial dominance. During the second half of the XVIII century and under the government of the Borbones, the politics established seemed to accompany the increase and growth of the cities and the towns in Spanish America, and to incentivate the urbanization of the areas of frontier of their Empire. Two queries articulate this work. Can the proposals formulated by the colonial authorities for Buenos Aires be located inside the urbanization politics proposed by the Borbones for frontier areas in Spanish America ? If this was this way, what concretion level has this politics had during the last decades of colonial bond? The establishment of towns will be studied for the case of Buenos Aires during the last decades of the XVIII century.Aunque el desarrollo urbano en América no fue privativo de la colonización europea, la fundación de pueblos y ciudades constituyó una política específica de conquista y dominación colonial. Durante la segunda mitad del siglo XVIII y bajo el gobierno de los Borbones, las políticas establecidas parecieron acompañar el aumento y crecimiento de las ciudades y los pueblos en Hispanoamérica, e incentivar la urbanización de las zonas de frontera de su Imperio. Dos interrogantes articulan este trabajo. ¿Pueden ubicarse las propuestas formuladas por las autoridades coloniales para Buenos Aires dentro de la política de urbanización propuesta por los Borbones para zonas de frontera en Hispanoamérica? Si esto fue así, ¿qué nivel de concreción ha tenido dicha política durante las últimas décadas de vínculo colonial? Se estudiará el establecimiento de pueblos para el caso de Buenos Aires durante las últimas décadas del siglo XVIII.

    Desde mediados del siglo XVIII, la documentación sobre los pueblos de indios del Tucumán incluye escuetas referencias sobre “agregados” y “soldados”, la móvil población que va creciendo en sus márgenes y que podía incluso superar en número a las familias tributarias. Normalmente, los agregados se vinculaban a los pueblos pagando un arriendo al cacique. Por ello, pudieron contribuir a la perduración de algunas reducciones y a la consolidación de su sistema de autoridades. Sin embargo, el mismo...

  7. Measurement of wavelengths and lamb shifts for inner-shell transitions in Fe XVIII-XXIV. [from solar flare X-ray spectra

    Science.gov (United States)

    Seely, J. F.; Feldman, U.; Safronova, U. I.

    1986-01-01

    The wavelengths of inner-shell 1s-2p transitions in the ions Fe XVIII-XXIV have been measured in solar flare spectra recorded by the Naval Research Laboratory crystal spectrometer (SOLFLEX) on the Air Force P78-1 spacecraft. The measurements are compared with previous measurements and with recently calculated wavelengths. It is found that the measured wavelengths are systematically larger than the wavelengths calculated using the Z-expansion method by up to 0.65 mA. For the more highly charged ions, these differences can be attributed to the QED contributions to the transition energies that are not included in the Z-expansion calculations.

    Full Text Available ResumenSe estudian los usos de la palabra chino, china en el norte peruano, entre los siglos XVIII y XIX, a partir de documentos históricos y coplas de la lírica popular. En contra de propuestas anteriores, se confirma el uso efectivo del término, sobre todo en su forma femenina, y se postulan dos acepciones: la primera, vinculada a la terminología de castas, alude a un tipo de mestizaje que une los troncos indio y africano, con un componente menor, variable, de “sangre blanca”, mientras que la segunda hace referencia a una mujer joven, generalmente campesina. Se estudia también el uso de la palabra como una fórmula de apelación a la amada en la lírica popular y se concluye que, aunque probablemente esta fórmula se derivó de la terminología racial, la palabra rápidamente adquirió matices afectivos positivos, con lo cual permitió aludir a la mujer cercana, aquella que era posible cortejar. Se sugiere que la antigua acepción ‘criada’, central en las fuentes coloniales del XVI y el XVII, se empezó a desdibujar en el período estudiado y, en línea con trabajos previos, se postula una competencia entre este lexema y la palabra homófona referida a las migrantes asiáticas desde fines del XIX.Palabras clave: categorización racial de seres humanos, lexicología, norte del Perú, siglos XVIII y XIXAbstractThis paper studies the uses of the word chino, china in northern Peru in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, via historical documents and popular poetry couplets. Contrary to previous proposals, we corroborate the actual use of this term, especially in its feminine form, and we propose two possible meanings for it: the first, linked to caste terminology, refers to a type of “racial mix” between “Indian” and “African”, with a minor and variable component of “white blood”, while the second refers to a young woman, usually a peasant. We also examine the use of the word as a formulaic

    Full Text Available Los procesos inquisitoriales a beatas por ilusas y alumbradas en la Nueva España, durante el siglo XVIII, muestran cómo la "anormalidad" del modelo de espiritualidad místico y ascético, al que las mujeres fueron tan proclives en dicha centuria, pasó al campo del discurso médico. La mirada masculina se desconcierta con la continuidad de los signos exteriores de la espiritualidad femenina, son sus cuerpos el medio por el cual dan cuenta de que algo fuera de lo normal las identifica: arrobamientos, posesiones, ataques, temblores y mal de corazón, entre otros. En las beatas, estos fenómenos desconciertan y son considerados más sospechosos, por cuanto ellas suelen ser mujeres pobres y simples -al decir de los religiosos- que viven de forma indenpendiente y hacen de la vida religiosa una forma de subsistencia. Este trabajo muestra cómo los inquisidores se suman a la lógica racionalista del siglo institucionalizando la asociación entre fenómenos místicos, locura e histeria en las mujeres. El cuerpo femenino, su extrañeza y la incomodidad que provoca en toda sociedad, permite en la sociedad occidental y en el espacio colonial realizar los primeros usos legales de la histeria como devaluación del verbo y la acción de las mujeres en el gran relato de la historiaThe inquisitorial trials of pious women on the charges of being deluded and spellbound in the New Spain, during the XVIII century, show how the ""abnormality" of the mistic and ascetic model of spirituality to which women were so fond of in said century moved in to the realm of the medical discourse. The male look is bewildered by the continuity of the external signs of female sprirituality, their bodies are the means through which they account for something out the normalcy that identifies them: raptures, possessions, fits, shudders, and melancholy, among others.

In an altar table, presently covered with modern white paint, were found some layers of ancient paintings from different periods, and identified by the pigments used in each one. The analysis of 15 sculptures - dating from XVII and XVIII centuries - revealed the original pigments, the elemental composition of the clay and materials employed in recent restorations. In most of the cases the original gilding had been covered with commercial golden paint. The analysis of 14 wood panels (XVIII century), at the vault and side walls of the chapel - representing nine episodes of the saint's life - revealed original pigments and retouching regions. The original pigments used in the paintings were: lead white, vermilion, ochre (red, yellow and brown), umber, bone black, green earth, verdigris and Prussian blue. In some regions of retouching were identified: chromium yellow, viridian/chromium oxide and zinc white. (author)

En el siglo XVIII, Siglo de las Luces, los viajeros franceses llegan a España con la idea de que los españoles son seres violentos, bárbaros y crueles e intentan demostrarlo, basándose en el examen de tres aspectos de la sociedad española: las corridas de toros, el tribunal de la Inquisición y los crímenes con navaja. No obstante, las reacciones no serán unánimes como se podía pensar: unos seguirán condenando a los crueles ibéricos, otros adoptarán una actitud más moderada, intentando analizar la situación con objetividad y sentido crítico.ABSTRACT: Iberian cruelty or barbarity has been fueling the anti-hispanic Black Legend since the 16th century. In the 18th century, the Age of the Enlightenment, French travellers arrived in Spain bearing in mind that the Spaniards were violent, barbarian and cruel beings and they attempted to demostrate that this was so by taking a close look at three aspects of Spanish society: bullfighting, the Inquisition and bloody murders. However, the reactions were not as identical as one might think: some relentlessly condemned the cruel Spaniards, while others adopted a more moderate attitude, trying to analyse the situation objectively and critically.

    Full Text Available The pictorial portrayals of Thebais were common during the Modern Age. However, we find very few images that show hermit activities with different habits and from different places. Thus the importance of the XVIIIth century picture subject of this paper, that depicts religious forms associated to cave life which had a long tradition on the site of La Luz in Murcia. We study the locus amoenus which is symbolic but inspired on a real environment of hermit inhabited caves, whose practices were regulated by the prelate of the Diocese of Cartagena, as proven by an inscription and by historic records. We look at the uniqueness of the picture and relate it to historic and literary sources on the subject.Las representaciones pictóricas de Tebaidas fueron comunes en la Edad Moderna. Sin embargo, apenas se conocen imágenes que muestren actividad eremítica con monjes de diversa procedencia y con distintos hábitos. De ahí la importancia del cuadro analizado del siglo XVIII, que plasma formas de religiosidad, vinculadas a la vida rupestre, de larga tradición en el paraje mostrado de La Luz en Murcia. Se estudia el locus amoenus pintado, que se inspira en un lugar simbólico y en un entorno real, con las cuevas que habitaron anacoretas, cuyas prácticas fueron reglamentadas por el prelado de la Diócesis de Cartagena, como prueban una inscripción y datos de archivo. Se aborda la singularidad del lienzo, relacionándolo con fuentes documentales y literarias alusivas al tema.

    Full Text Available Comme on le sait, la Moldavie a été la plus réceptive des trois provinces roumaines à la culture française. Dans cette province-ci, les contacts avec le mouvement d'idées européen ont été plus puissants. La lutte d'affirmation nationale a mené à l'augmentation de la conscience politique de la société moldave et à une participation plus accentuée à la vie politique. Le goût pour la lecture a évolue, aussi, pendant que la mentalité a commencé se transformer; on sollicite et ensuite traduit les oeuvres dans lesquelles apparaissent les idées sociales politiques, l'histoire universelle, la géographie, les conquêtes de la technique ou la littérature philosophique-moralisatrice. Les plus anciennes copies en roumain des oeuvres traduites du français, qui se trouvent dans nos bibliothèques datent de la fin du XVIII-ème siècle. Celles-ci sont des traductions de Voltaire, Marmontel, Ambrosius Marlianus, Francesco Loredano, Fénélon, Johan Thuresson Oxenstiern, Gabriel Pérau, Alain Réné Lesage, André Guillaume Constant d' Orville. Le livre imprimé (inclusivement jusqu' en 1800 provient des ateliers typographiques de Paris, Londres, Genève, Regensburg, Basel et Berlin. Le plus ancien exemplaire, Le tableau de L'Europe, est imprimé à Paris, en 1651. Pour ceux qui s'y intéressent, nous avons organisé la liste de ces livres, sur catégories de détenteurs.

    Full Text Available ¿Como eran enfrentados los desastres naturales en los siglos XVIII y XIX, cuando no existían los mecanismos institucionales que hoy conocemos bajo el moderno concepto de la 'prevención de desastres', con todo su sistema de ayudas tecnológicas, médicas e institucionales? Los desastres se asemejan a las enfermedades, al ser un elemento de desorganización social y un factor de temido desarreglo para la vida cotidiana, por lo que permiten hacer visibles las articulaciones internas de una sociedad y las tensiones que la atraviesan. Son un punto privilegiado para percibir el significado de mecanismos administrativos y prácticas religiosas en torno a fenómenos que vulneran una comunidad, así como la imagen que una sociedad tiene de sí misma. A pesar de que los archivos coloniales y republicanos poseen información dispersa sobre el tema, es posible identificar la manera como se sucedían con recurrencia fuertes temporadas de invierno que obstaculizaban el comercio y la movilización de personas y mercancías. Los documentos históricos también permiten conocer la ocurrencia de tempestades, granizadas, inundaciones, largas temporadas de sequía, vendavales, erupciones volcánicas, terremotos y deslizamientos de tierra y lodo. que podían arrasar cultivos, animales del campo y poblaciones enteras. Al hecho de que sucedieran estos eventos, contribuían las acciones humanas de intervención sobre los paisajes naturales.

    Full Text Available Este trabajo aborda la relación entre honor y prácticas sociales en el siglo XVIII chileno, analizando la figura de los duelos o expresiones de violencia masculina formalizada. Junto con indagar en los mecanismos restitutorios del honor y su vinculación a los fundamentos de una masculinidad tradicional, reflexiona sobre las gamas de manejo social de dicho valor en el período señalado. Teóricamente se rescatan los aportes de la antropología y se hace un balance del tratamiento historiográfico del problema. Desde los registros judiciales se plantea el carácter transversal del honor en términos sociales y se aborda su "doble naturaleza" en cuanto espacio relacional y ámbito de confrontación de los individuos.This works deals with the relationship between honor and social practices in Chile's eighteenth century and analyzes formal duels or expressions of legalized masculine violence. This article explores various manifestations of the social ways used to deal with honor at that time, together with the inquiries about mechanisms used to restore honor and its links with traditional masculinity. Theoretically, this work rescues contributions made by anthropologists and provides an overview of how honor and masculinity have been examined in the historiography. Starting from judicial records, the article considers the transversal character of honor in social terms and approaches its "double significance" as both a relational space for people and as a sphere for the confrontation of individuals.

    Full Text Available This article analyses an unpublished text written by a nun in Santiago of Chile around the mid-eighteenth century. The text, written by her confessor’s command, recounts the visions and locutions that she had with the Virgin Mary, which revolved around the figure of the confessor. This makes quite a special report because the priest appears as a central character of the visions, and the one who benefits from the intercession of the nun before the heavenly beings. At the same time, the account gives evidence of the nun’s awareness of her role, her limitations as a woman and her mediator power. On the other hand, the nun’s narrative shows not only the way of living her faith, but also allows us to get nearer to the ‘religious mentality’ of her time.El artículo analiza un texto inédito escrito por una monja de Santiago de Chile, a mediados del siglo XVIII, por mandato de su confesor. En él se refieren las visiones y locuciones tuvo con la Virgen, las que giran en torno a la figura del confesor. Esto hace bastante especial el relato, pues el sacerdote aparece como un personaje central de las visiones, que se beneficia de la intercesión de la religiosa ante los seres celestiales. Pero al mismo tiempo, la narración deja en evidencia a una religiosa muy consciente de su papel, de sus limitaciones como mujer y de su poder mediador. Por otra parte, el relato de la monja muestra no sólo su manera de vivir la fe, sino también nos permite acercarnos a la mentalidad religiosa de su época.

  20. Status of safety issues at licensed power plants: TMI Action Plan requirements; unresolved safety issues; generic safety issues; other multiplant action issues. Supplement 3

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1993-12-01

    As part of ongoing US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) efforts to ensure the quality and accountability of safety issue information, the NRC established a program for publishing an annual report on the status of licensee implementation and NRC verification of safety issues in major NRC requirements areas. This information was initially compiled and reported in three NUREG-series volumes. Volume 1, published in March 1991, addressed the status of Three Mile Island (TMI) Action Plan Requirements. Volume 2, published in May 1991, addressed the status of unresolved safety issues (USIs). Volume 3, published in June 1991, addressed the implementation and verification status of generic safety issues (GSIs). The first annual supplement, which combined these volumes into a single report and presented updated information as of September 30, 1991, was published in December 1991. The second annual supplement, which provided updated information as of September 30, 1992, was published in December 1992. Supplement 2 also provided the status of licensee implementation and NRC verification of other multiplant action (MPA) issues not related to TMI Action Plan requirements, USIs, or GSIs. This third annual NUREG report, Supplement 3, presents updated information as of September 30, 1993. This report gives a comprehensive description of the implementation and verification status of TMI Action Plan requirements, safety issues designated as USIs, GSIs, and other MPAs that have been resolved and involve implementation of an action or actions by licensees. This report makes the information available to other interested parties, including the public. Additionally, this report serves as a follow-on to NUREG-0933, ``A Prioritization of Generic Safety Issues,`` which tracks safety issues until requirements are approved for imposition at licensed plants or until the NRC issues a request for action by licensees.

    Full Text Available Quais são as fontes históricas das mobilizações em torno de questões distantes - uma característica típica da modernidade? Este artigo examina a dinâmica social que produziu os primeiros casos de campanhas sustentadas em torno de questões distantes na Grã-Bretanha do século XVIII. O surgimento dessas campanhas é muitas vezes entendido como determinado pela ascensão nesse período de novas ideologias de compaixão humanitária. Para testar o papel dessas ideologias, comparo dois conjuntos de campanhas: o impeachment de Warrant Hastings por Edmund Burke e a série de mobilizações religiosas iniciada com o movimento contra o tráfico de escravos colonial. Embora ambos os conjuntos fossem impulsionados por idiomas culturais de preocupação humanitária semelhantes, a iniciativa de Burke falhou em produzir engajamento popular e as campanhas religiosas foram capazes de mobilizar amplas audiências de apoiadores. Essa diferença surpreendente destaca a importância das redes associativas religiosas para o surgimento dos primeiros casos modernos de mobilização em torno de questões distantes.What are the historical sources for mobilizations around distant issues - one of the characteristic features of modernity? This article examines the social dynamics that led to the first sustained campaigns on distant issues in late eighteenth-century Britain. Their emergence is often understood to have been determined by the rise of new ideologies of humanitarian compassion during the period. To test the role of these ideologies, I compare two sets of campaigns: Edmund Burke's impeachment of Warrant Hastings and the series of religious mobilizations initiated with the movement against the colonial slave trade. While both campaigns were driven by similar cultural idioms of humanitarian concern, Burke's initiative failed to produce popular engagement, while the religious campaigns were able to mobilize wide groups of public supporters.

    We develop a universal distributional calculus for regulated volumes of metrics that are suitably singular along hypersurfaces. When the hypersurface is a conformal infinity we give simple integrated distribution expressions for the divergences and anomaly of the regulated volume functional valid for any choice of regulator. For closed hypersurfaces or conformally compact geometries, methods from a previously developed boundary calculus for conformally compact manifolds can be applied to give explicit holographic formulæ for the divergences and anomaly expressed as hypersurface integrals over local quantities (the method also extends to non-closed hypersurfaces). The resulting anomaly does not depend on any particular choice of regulator, while the regulator dependence of the divergences is precisely captured by these formulæ. Conformal hypersurface invariants can be studied by demanding that the singular metric obey, smoothly and formally to a suitable order, a Yamabe type problem with boundary data along the conformal infinity. We prove that the volume anomaly for these singular Yamabe solutions is a conformally invariant integral of a local Q-curvature that generalizes the Branson Q-curvature by including data of the embedding. In each dimension this canonically defines a higher dimensional generalization of the Willmore energy/rigid string action. Recently, Graham proved that the first variation of the volume anomaly recovers the density obstructing smooth solutions to this singular Yamabe problem; we give a new proof of this result employing our boundary calculus. Physical applications of our results include studies of quantum corrections to entanglement entropies.

De ordinario se identifica burguesía con actividad mercantil, y realmente el comercio constituía, todavía en el siglo xviii, la principal base de ingresos de la burguesía. Pero debemos llamar la atención sobre la importancia de las profesiones liberales. Médicos y hombres de leyes tuvieron gran importancia en el movimiento ideológico y cultural de la centuria. Más aún el desarrollo económico de un país daba lugar al desarrollo de las profesiones y al beneficio económico de la abogacía, por ejemplo, como puede constatarse en Inglaterra. El lector se habrá encontrado con las expresiones burguesía agraria o burguesía rural en obras sobre el siglo xviii español. Se refieren a los propietarios campesinos no nobles, pero de gran importancia en los pueblos, llamados en la época «los poderosos».

Finalmente, tratamos de reflexionar sobre si el resultado final es la consecuencia necesaria de un proyecto de reforma preconcebido o de una simple adaptación a las circunstancias propias del devenir histórico. Apostamos por la primera solución, así que tratamos en integrar los cambios implementados con el pensamiento y los programas de reforma diseñados por Alberoni y Patiño.AbstractThis study is organized from a double perspective. Firstly, the success or failure in the implementation of projects designed to reform taxation in the whole Spanish monarchy during the first half of the eighteenth century. On the other hand, the success or failure in defending the fiscal privileges of Navarra and Canarias, territories in which Philip V could not impose the right of conquest after the War of Succession. We analyse these specificities with the intention of meeting those aspects that remain and those that disappear. Lastly, we try to reflect if the final status is the result of a preconceived reform project or a simple adaptation to the circumstances of the historical development. We focus on the first solution, so we try to relate the implemented changes with the Alberoni and Patiño reform programs.

Extant correspondence between the editor (Antonio Valladares de Sotomayor, the Consejo de Castilla, and the censors (primarily Ignacio López de Ayala and Santos Díez González allow us to view the censorship process and the attitudes of the participants in the process. After introducing Valladares and reviewing the laws that regulated the printing of periodicals, we examine requests for printing licenses made by the editor and the justifications of the censors and the Consejo for their decisions. While the censors and the Consejo sought to maintain ideological and legal control over what was published, the correspondence shows that they were also interested in making important, useful documents available to the reading public and in insuring that what was printed was correct and accurate.¿Cómo operaba la censura periodística en España en las últimas décadas del siglo XVIII?

    Full Text Available En esta comunicación se analizan algunos aspectos del micro cosmos cultural de un pazo gallego, el de Goiáns, cuya excepcional ubicación a orillas de la ría de Arousa dota de alto valor añadido a este solar con espacios singulares como pesquera y embarcadero. Los inventarios de bienes de la casa informan de varios indicadores culturales de las elites (libros, juegos, obras artísticas, instrumentos musicales y otros, como la alimentación, pueden estudiarse gracias a la documentación contable. El breve esplendor material del pazo parece datarse a mediados del siglo XVIII coincidiendo con la exitosa promoción social de los señores de Goiáns y sus hijos consecuencia de un cúmulo de factores (relaciones familiares, poder económico, bodas ventajosas, educación privilegiada…. La carrera militar de los sucesivos dueños les obligó a residir allí donde ejercían estos empleos y Goiáns pasó a ser una segunda residencia, cada vez más vacía de vida y de muebles, convirtiéndose a partir de la década de 1820 en un simple centro de administración de rentas.This report analyzes some relevant points about the cultural microcosm of a Galician Pazo (that of Goians. Its ideal situation, on the banks of the Ría de Arousa, provides an added value to this land with unique spaces such as a fisherie and a pier. Inventories of the household goods give a number of cultural indicators of the elite (books, games, artwork, musical instruments and other factors, such as meals, can be studied thanks to accounting documentation. The Pazo reached its peak in the mid-eighteenth century coinciding with the successful social promotion of the lords of Goians and their children due to a combination of factors (family relations, wealth, marriages of convenience, a privileged education. The military careers of the subsequent owners forced them to move away and live wherever they exercised their jobs. This way Goians became a second residence, increasingly

    Full Text Available We have selected some questions of military historiography from XVIth to XVIIIth century according to their influence on the global comprehension of the early modern history. From this subject we have evaluated dificulties and goals in the last decades. We have specially paid attention to the British and French historiographycal traditions because of their development and significance on the Spanish way of facing the military history. In conclution, we suggest that the main methodological and conceptual contributions of the special field that concerns us in this article have to be related to the last years. This matched with the moment in which these historians have changed their attempt to focus the most important changes in the early modern period from their specialism. Best results have been achieved when they have recognized a more modest status for the military history.

    Dentro del campo de la historiografía militar —en un sentido amplio— de los siglos XVI al XVIII, se han seleccionado algunas cuestiones que por su influencia e innovación conceptual han supuesto mayores aportaciones a la comprensión general del período moderno en su conjunto. A partir de ellas, se ha tratado de valorar los principales logros y los escollos más enconados que los historiadores de la especialidad han ido ofreciendo y encontrando en las últimas décadas. Las escuelas historiográficas de lo militar que, en función precisamente de su desarrollo, han encontrado mayor cabida en estas páginas son la británica y, en menor medida, la francesa. Ambas, por otro lado, son las que más han influido en los historiadores españoles. Como conclusión, el autor sugiere que las principales aportaciones metodológicas y conceptuales de la historiografía militar modernista se han producido precisamente en el momento en el que se ha abandonado la pretensión de hacer de lo específicamente militar el factor clave en el desarrollo histórico de las sociedades

    Full Text Available Recently published by the Madrid publishing house Sequitur, La Escuela Universalista Española del siglo XVIII is an introductory work to a study of the so-called Universalist School. Its author, Pedro Aullón de Haro from the University of Alicante, Spain, and Head of the Research Group “Humanism-Europe” since 1994, has coordinated various volumes whose main objective is the historical reconstruction of the Late Spanish Enlightenment Period, which was truncated by Charles III of Spain’s expulsion of the Jesuits, affecting a great many of its members. This Enlightenment Period, in contrast to the victorious French Enlightenment, offered not a political, but a scientific and humanistic view of knowledge, taking a comparative and universalist approach, but, due to the aforementioned expulsion of the Jesuits, the authors dispersed, leaving their work unfinished; and it is only now, under the label of the Universalist School, coined by Prof. Aullón de Haro, that they have been gathered together furthering the possibility of recovering their meaning and systematic cohesion. This volume serves as an introduction to the publications that the author has announced for 2018, in which the detailed study of the main authors within this scientific community will be undertaken following an encyclopaedic structure, which will finally give recognition to the Universalist School movement, and whose stand out authors include: Juan Andrés, creator of the Universal History of the Humanities and Sciences; Lorenzo Hervás y Panduro, creator of Universal and Comparative Linguistics; and Antonio Eximeno, creator of a universal aesthetic concept of music as language and expression. The common thread of the School is precisely the "universalist ideation" that assumes the unity of knowledge in a harmonious integration of experimental sciences, fine arts and human sciences within a humanistic epistemological framework, and consequently, comparativism as a

Los objetivos son, en primer lugar, dar a conocer una fuente “popular” en relación a un tema, el viaje, que para el siglo XVIII ha sido generalmente estudiado desde la perspectiva de la alta cultura, como ingrediente clave para la formación e instrucción de cualquier espíritu ilustrado. Rastreando los aspectos asociados al viaje que, numerosos, asoman en los pliegos sueltos, se muestran otras representaciones de viajes y viajeros, que contribuyan a enriquecer nuestra comprensión sobre la diversidad de concepciones que el tema pudo suscitar en la época. En segundo lugar, a partir de una muestra representativa de romances publicados en el siglo XVIII, se analizan distintos rasgos de los relatos de viajes: periplos, lugares de destino, tipos de viajes, identidad de los viajeros, causas para emprender el itinerario, descripción de espacios, éxito o fracaso de la empresa, etc. Finalmente, se seleccionan algunos textos representativos para indagar los valores asociados al viaje y al encuentro con “el otro”, con el fin de explorar los miedos e ilusiones que, según los relatos, llevaba aparejado aventurarse hacia lo desconocido.AbstractThis paper focuses on 18th century romances’ representations of travels and travellers. Its aims are: firstly, to shed light on a «popular» source about a topic like travels, which has been studied traditionally from the perspective of high culture, as an element linked to the education of enlightened people. Through the analysis of different features about travels which are found in «pliegos sueltos», another representations of travels and travellers are shown, which can enrich our understanding about this topic. Secondly, different features of travelling stories published as popular prints in the 18th century are analysed: journeys, destinations, travellers and their aims

But the views of residents of the city are divided: some support to keep the old name of the city, changing its semantic load, and there are a lot of people willing to rename the city in Sicheslav, Dniproslav, Kodak and the like. Now it is important to know the opinion of young people in the city and region who create their future and that of their children. The analysis of the research. The history of the settlements of the XVI – XVIII centuries on the territory of the future Katerynoslav (Dnipropetrovs’k became the subject of study of many scientists since the nineteenth century. In the years of independence more and more historians declare the necessity of the revision of the chronology of the history of our city, taking into account the earlier settlements, which undoubtedly influenced both the development of the region and the future provincial city. The purpose of this article is to determine the degree of influence of the settlements of the XVI – XVIII centuries on later (including modern history of Katerynoslav (Dnipropetrovs’k in the minds of the youth of the city. Conclusion. The analysis of the settlements of the XVI-XVIII centuries testifies to the active urban processes that took place in our region in the Cossack-Hetman days. This important stage in the history of our city enriches us, its current inhabitants, with facts about the distant past which we should not only remember and pass on to our descendants, but also recover through the reconstruction of the defining architectural features.

    Nanofluids are a new class of fluids engineered by dispersing nanometer-size structures (particles, fibers, tubes, droplets) in base fluids. The very essence of nanofluids research and development is to enhance fluid macroscopic and megascale properties such as thermal conductivity through manipulating microscopic physics (structures, properties and activities). Therefore, the success of nanofluid technology depends very much on how well we can address issues like effective means of microscale manipulation, interplays among physics at different scales and optimization of microscale physics for the optimal megascale properties. In this work, we take heat-conduction nanofluids as examples to review methodologies available to effectively tackle these key but difficult problems and identify the future research needs as well. The reviewed techniques include nanofluids synthesis through liquid-phase chemical reactions in continuous-flow microfluidic microreactors, scaling-up by the volume averaging and constructal design with the constructal theory. The identified areas of future research contain microfluidic nanofluids, thermal waves and constructal nanofluids.

    For any conformally compact manifold with hypersurface boundary we define a canonical renormalized volume functional and compute an explicit, holographic formula for the corresponding anomaly. For the special case of asymptotically Einstein manifolds, our method recovers the known results. The anomaly does not depend on any particular choice of regulator, but the coefficients of divergences do. We give explicit formulae for these divergences valid for any choice of regulating hypersurface; these should be relevant to recent studies of quantum corrections to entanglement entropies. The anomaly is expressed as a conformally invariant integral of a local Q-curvature that generalizes the Branson Q-curvature by including data of the embedding. In each dimension this canonically defines a higher dimensional generalization of the Willmore energy/rigid string action. We show that the variation of these energy functionals is exactly the obstruction to solving a singular Yamabe type problem with boundary data along the...

    Full Text Available This work studies the polisemous universe of the practices and the speeches of violence, civility and social control that circulated in the city of Santiago throughout XVIII century. When analyzing plots of meaning of the narrations of interpersonal violence, related to the construction of a hegemonic masculinity and protected in speeches of honour, the study explores the survival of old practices of private revenge. Also, it examines the tensions and negotiations established between these and the strategies of social control undertaken by the Bourbons’ state and exerted through a microphysics of daily control, incarnated as much in the functions of the ‘Alcaldes de barrio’ like in the socialization of a civility paradigm. The latest allows putting under evaluation the fissures and the strengths of the foundations of the Bourbon’s administration.

Las capellanías fueron instituciones piadosas al servicio de las almas de sus fundadores y beneficiaron a familiares y clérigos allegados. A partir de las inquietudes escatológicas sobre el más allá, las capellanías cumplieron funciones terrenales como la educativa, la rentista y la crediticia, en el marco de una “economía espiritual”, y consolidaron las redes familiares y políticas del poder. Por otra parte, los bienes de las capellanías contribuyeron al crecimiento económico regional a través de la inversión en actividades productivas.

    Full Text Available This article deals with the demographic characteristics of the Spanish emigration to America between 16th and 18th Centuries, and the way in which the Spanish Crown controlled people traffic in order to prevent the transit of marginal and unsettled population to the New World. The author shows the case of an 18th Century Spanish emigration through the examination of the legal proceedings opened by the authorities in the Antioquia Province, Nueva Granada. The social aspects of the migration process to America are shown in literary form, including the social integration of the newcomers in the colonial neighbourhoods, their personal perfomance with regard to laws and norms, the social conflicts inherent to their situation as travellers who were little integrated in the communities, and aspects of the local life of the time.

    En el artículo se exponen las características demográficas de la emigración española hacia América, entre los siglos XVI al XVIII, y la forma como la Corona española ejerció controles sobre el tráfico de personas, para evitar el traslado de la población flotante y marginal al Nuevo Mundo. Se narra el caso de un emigrante español en el siglo XVIII, de acuerdo al expediente judicial que le abrieron las autoridades en la Provincia de Antioquia en la Nueva Granada. De manera literaria, el autor muestra facetas de gran contenido social del proceso de la emigración hacia América: las formas de integración social de los recién llegados a los vecindarios coloniales, su desempeño personal respecto a las leyes y normas, los conflictos sociales inherentes a su situación de viajeros poco integrados a las comunidades y aspectos de la vida local de la época.

Para o Rio de Janeiro confluíam também as rotas que traziam metais preciosos, ouro das Minas e prata proveniente do comércio no rio da Prata. O objetivo desse artigo será demonstrar que, não obstante a progressiva importância estratégico-militar da cidade do Rio de Janeiro, as questões relativas a sua defesa vinham a ocupar um papel secundário diante das necessidades político-militares que se impunham tanto ao Sul da Colônia quanto na região das Minas. Verifica-se, entretanto, que tanto a invasão francesa de 1711 quanto a assinatura do Tratado de Paz de Utrecht entre as Coroas Ibéricas vieram a possibilitar uma política que priorizasse a defesa militar da tão estrategicamente situada cidade e porto do Rio de Janeiro. O recorte cronológico do artigo abarca o período compreendido entre o final do século XVII, quando as Capitanias do Sul passaram novamente a ser governadas do Rio de Janeiro, e o início do século XVIII, com o governo de Vahia Monteiro.

Los resultados indican a las aves silvestres como las más tratadas en piezas musicales tanto en Europa como en Venezuela; manifiestan también una proporción mayor de piezas musicales que tratan los animales de producción versus animales domésticos en Venezuela, mostrándose lo contrario en el continente europeo. Se concluye, en primer lugar, que tanto en Venezuela como en Europa, la cultura humana busca enaltecer la fauna silvestre, ya sea de forma naturalista o romántica; se confirma el fuerte arraigo de la mentalidad agropecuaria venezolana y su importancia en el desarrollo de la cultura nacional a la par que en Europa; los resultados reflejan el poco contacto con áreas verdes abiertas y sistemas de producción agropecuarios que poseían los compositores y público académico de la época. Esta investigación fomenta la interdisciplinariedad en la sociedad científica venezolana, haciendo aportes científicos al desarrollo de la cultura, además de servir a docentes, terapeutas musicales, historiadores y la sociedad en general en sus investigaciones y ocupaciones al generar nuevas preguntas en el campo científico de la psiquis humana dentro de la relación hombre/animal y brindar nuevos conocimientos a la ciencia histórica de la Medicina Veterinaria y la Música Universal.

    Full Text Available Los sacramentos han sido desde la Edad Media la declaración más visible del culto y la de fe católicos. Su estudio en la región española de Cantabria en el período comprendido entre los siglos XVI y XIX presenta numerosos aspectos de interés. El bautismo fue altamente valorado y practicado, tanto por los laicos como por las altas jerarquías eclesiásticas. Fue administrado con celeridad creciente tras el nacimiento, y bajo la forma de «urgencia» en numerosas ocasiones. Los sacerdotes lo administraban con gran libertad y con frecuencia eran también elegidos como padrinos. Esta realidad, junto con otras, muestran que el mencionado sacramento no constituyó un refugio de antiguas formas de sociabilidad contra el impulso de la confesionalización. La comunión era recibida principalmente en Pascua, pero la «decencia» de la celebración y el respeto y reverencia de los fieles fueron deficientes al respecto. La confesión cumplía su función anual normativa de forma mecánica, aunque un nuevo modelo, más interiorizado, fue desarrollado por parte de algunas órdenes religiosas a partir del siglo XVII. La celebración de la confirmación, el menos valorado sociológicamente de todos los sacramentos, fue esporádica y rara (con intervalos de hasta 40 años en algunos lugares. El matrimonio católico tuvo que luchar contra la antigua práctica de los «esponsales» y padeció numerosas formas de disciplinamiento social, como la «cencerrada». En general, la práctica sacramental muestra con claridad los límites de la confesionalización en la España Atlántica, incluso durante el siglo XVIII.The sacraments have been from the Middle Ages the most visible declaration of the Christian worship and faith.

    This study aims to evaluate the suitability of non-linear geostatistics and indicator kriging (IK) as a tool in environmental impact assessment and nature conservation, in particular to search for potential Special Areas of Conservation (SAC) for the endangered fish species twaite shad, Alosa fallax (Lacepède, 1803) within the German Exclusive Economical Zone (EEZ) of the North Sea. To analyse the spatial distribution of this fish species, data on standardised biomass index (catch per unit effort, c.p.u.e., kg × 30 min-1) from 1996 to 2001 were used, regarding the third and fourth quarters of each year, respectively. Thereby we assume that the spatial distribution can be described as a time-invariant process. This assumption is supported by information on annual sampling effort, allocation of hauls and spatial distribution of the positive catches. All indicator variograms obtained for different c.p.u.e. cut-off values displayed distinct spatial structures, clearly indicating that the indicator variables were spatially autocorrelated. Gaussian models were fitted by least-squares methods and were evaluated with a goodness-of-fit statistic. Subsequently, IK was employed to estimate the probability of exceeding the c.p.u.e. cut-off values for the twaite shad in the investigation area. These were highest in the Weser- and Elbe-estuary, probably because of migrations of twaite shad to and from estuaries at the time of investigation due to spawning, while within the German EEZ of the North Sea no such areas with increased probabilities could be discerned. Thus, although available data did not allow to identify and implement any SAC in the German EEZ, the methods employed here can be regarded as a promising management tool in biological conservation issues.
