    Full Text Available Female pseudohermaphroditism represents discrepancy between karyotype and gonadal features on one side and a psychogenic phenotype on the other. Congenital adrenal hyperplasia is the part of the spectrum of female pseudohaermaofroditism and is due to an enzyme deficiency in steroidogenesis. More than 95% of patients have 21 hydroxylase deficiency which leads to a lack of cortisol and ACTH hypersecretion of pituitary, overproduction of 17 hydroxy progesterone (17OHP and androgens and adrenal cortex hyperplasia. The clinical phenotype is classified as classical and nonclassical (aka. 'Late onset' form. The classic form is represented as salt-waisting and simply virilizing, depending on the degree of lack of aldosterone. Pathophysiology of CAH due to the lack of 21α hydroxylase is closely associated with the degree of enzyme deficiency. Overproduction of androgens is leading to accelerated virilisation. Classical form is manifested in childhood and is characterized by the overproduction of cortisol precursors and adrenal androgens. In the most severe form, co-aldosterone deficiency leads to loss of salt with all the complications. Girls with the classical form of CAH typically have am ambiguous genitals at birth due to high concentrations of androgens in utero. CAH due to 21OH deficiency is the most common cause of ambiguous genitals in 46XX newborns. Characteristically, the clitoris is enlarged, partially fused labia maiora and a common urogenital sinus at the site of the urethra and vagina. The uterus, Fallopian tubes and ovaries are present and normal, a structures of Wolfian duct are absent. When diagnosed in childhood 46XX CAH patients has been assigned female gender so far, even in fully expressed in virilised external genitalia. This dogmatic approach is based on preserving fertility, and if there was at least uterus, opting for female sex was considered justified. Only about 5% of 46 patients with XX KAH has a psychogenic male gender, as

    Full Text Available Changes in the extent of glaciers and rates of glacier termini retreat in the eastern Terskey-Alatoo Range, the Tien Shan Mountains, Central Asia have been evaluated using the remote sensing techniques. Changes in the extent of 109 glaciers between 1965, 1990 and 2003 have been estimated through the delineation of glacier outlines on the topographic maps, Landsat TM and ASTER imagery for 1965, 1990 and 2003 respectively. Glacier surface area has decreased by 12.6% of the 1965 value between 1965 and 2003. Detailed mapping of 10 glaciers using historical maps and aerial photographs from the 1943–1977 period, has enabled glacier extent variations over the 20th century to be identified with a higher temporal resolution. Glacial retreat was slow in the early 20th century but increased considerably between 1943 and 1956 and then again after 1977. The post-1990 period has been marked by the most rapid glacier retreat since the end of the LIA. For the selected 13 glaciers volume reduction has been evaluated using a time step digital elevation models. DEM obtained from the 1:25 000 topographic maps of 1965 and 1977 were compared to SRTM data. The observed changes in the extent of glaciers are in line with the observed climatic warming. The regional weather stations have revealed a strong climatic warming during the ablation season since the 1950s at a rate of 0.02–0.03 oC a-¹. At the higher elevations in the study area represented by the Tien Shan meteorological station, the summer warming was accompanied by negative anomalies in annual precipitation in the 1990s enhancing glacier retreat. However, trends in precipitation in the post-1997 period cannot be evaluated due to the change in observational practices at this station. Neither station in the study area exhibits significant long-term trends in precipitation.

    The first part of our work has focused on the relationship bet men tumor Volume and tumor control. Indeed, it is well known that the importance of irradiated volume could be a main parameter of radiation-induced complications. Numerous mathematical models have described the correlation between the irradiated volume and the risk of adverse effects. These models should predict the complication rate of each treatment planning. At the present time late effects have been the most studied. In this report we firstly propose a review of different mathematical models described for volume effect. Secondly, we will discuss whether these theoretical considerations can influence our view of radiation treatment planning optimization. (authors)

    Full Text Available Los últimos 25 años del siglo XX han supuesto un sustancial cambio en el modelo de crecimiento de la población andaluza. Así, mientras la caída de la fecundidad y la estabilización de las tasas de mortalidad han contribuido a un progresivo retroceso de la vitalidad natural, la masiva emigración de antaño ha dado paso al papel de Andalucía como incipiente foco de inmigración y al creciente protagonismo de movimientos internos de relocalización de la población. Desde el punto de vista territorial estas afirmaciones quedan matizadas por los notables contrastes que se producen entre los distintos ámbitos que conforman la región y que contraponen al medio rural con el urbano, al litoral con el interior o a las grandes ciudades con sus periferias.

    Increased acid precipitation is the main cause of extensive losses of salmonid fish stocks and other fish populations in southern Scandinavia, northeastern United States, and southeastern Canada. In addition, airborne transport of sulfur compounds are a threat to forest ecosystems and productivity, and to human health. Extensive surveys conducted in Sweden and Norway have documented adverse effects of the transport of pollutants through the atmosphere, and research has indicated that the major source of acid precipitation in Scandinavia is the combustion of fossil fuels in the heavily industrialized parts of Europe. Highly acid precipitation in a central area of Europe as early as the 1960s had a pH of 3-4, and the area is growing steadily larger. All governments should reduce emissions of pollutants to the air. The governments of Norway and Sweden have prohibited use of heavy oil containing over 1% sulfur. World efforts to monitor and evaluate long-range transmissions of air pollutants across national frontiers must be intensified, and data collection should be integrated in the United Nation's global environmental monitoring system. The present policy in some countries of dispersing harmful pollutants by means of tall stacks is no longer acceptable. International cooperation in reducing air pollutant emissions is needed.

    Volume is an important parameter of radiation therapy. Local control is inversely related to tumor size and the complication rate increases with the importance of the irradiated volume. Although the effect of irradiated volume has been widely reported since the beginning of radiotherapy, it has been less studied than other radiation parameters such as dose, fractionation, or treatment duration. One of the first organ system in which the adverse effect of increased volume was well defined is the skin. Over the last twenty years, numerous mathematical models have been developed for different organs. In this report we will discuss the relation between irradiated volume and tumor control. In a second article we will study the impact of irradiated volume on radiation adverse effects. (authors)

    The Lasershot Marking System uses laser pulses to safely and permanently impress identification markings on metal components. This process does not remove material or change surface chemistry and actually increases the marked area's resistance to fatigue and corrosion failure. Lasershot marking is ideally suited for marking parts used in situations where safety is critical--from hip-joint replacements to commercial airliner components. The minimum size of the mark is limited only by the resolution of the reading system, allowing manufacturers to mark parts which, up to now, have been too small to label with mechanical peening techniques. The high resolution of the Lasershot marks makes them difficult to reproduce, providing a solution to the ongoing problem of inferior, counterfeited parts. The high marking rate of up to six marks per second makes this system practical and cost-effective for marking high-volume components.

  12. Oak Ridge National Laboratory Technology Logic Diagram. Volume 2, Technology Logic Diagram: Part B, Remedial Action

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1993-09-01

    The Oak Ridge National Laboratory Technology Logic Diagram (TLD) was developed to provide a decision support tool that relates environmental restoration (ER) and waste management (WM) problems at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to potential technologies that can remediate these problems. The TLD identifies the research, development, demonstration, testing, and evaluation needed to develop these technologies to a state that allows technology transfer and application to decontamination and decommissioning (D&D), remedial action (RA), and WM activities. The TLD consists of three fundamentally separate volumes: Vol. 1 (Technology Evaluation), Vol. 2 (Technology Logic Diagram), and Vol. 3 (Technology Evaluation Data Sheets). Part A of Vols. 1. and 2 focuses on D&D. Part B of Vols. 1 and 2 focuses on the RA of contaminated facilities. Part C of Vols. 1 and 2 focuses on WM. Each part of Vol. 1 contains an overview of the TLD, an explanation of the program-specific responsibilities, a review of identified technologies, and the rankings of remedial technologies. Volume 2 (Pts. A, B, and C) contains the logic linkages among EM goals, environmental problems, and the various technologies that have the potential to solve these problems. Volume 3 (Pts. A, B, and C) contains the TLD data sheets. Remedial action is the focus of Vol. 2, Pt. B, which has been divided into the three necessary subelements of the RA: characterization, RA, and robotics and automation. Each of these sections address general ORNL problems, which are then broken down by problem area/constituents and linked to potential remedial technologies. The diagrams also contain summary information about a technology`s status, its science and technology needs, and its implementation needs.

    Full Text Available En México, la Escuela Normal ha sido la principal institución encargada de la formación de profesores para el nivel escolar básico (preescolar, primaria, secundaria; los enfoques de formación que circulan en esta institución han ido en paralelo con las políticas educativas nacionales, en tanto que el Gobierno Federal, por medio de la Secretaría de Educación Pública, es el “encargado” de dictar las políticas para la formación de los futuros docentes en dichas escuelas, por lo que su estudio (tanto de los enfoques como de las políticas resulta indispensable para comprender el trayecto de las Escuelas Normales durante el siglo XX. El objetivo de este escrito, es presentar un panorama histórico sobre las Escuelas Normales en México y dar cuenta de sus principales momentos: creación, cambios nominales, corrientes teóricas prevalecientes, momentos políticos que la definen, inter alia. Estos elementos permiten ver a grandes rasgos los procesos sociales y educativos que fueron marcandola educación normal. Concluimos que con las Escuelas Normales en México, se inicia la formación de profesores y si bien en 1982, estas Escuelas Normales adquirieron el status de instituciones de educación superior, su destino sigue estando atado a la educación básica: “por el peso de la historia y por el peso de la ley”.

    The Oak Ridge K-25 Technology Logic Diagram (TLD), a decision support tool for the K-25 Site, was developed to provide a planning document that relates environmental restoration and waste management problems at the Oak Ridge K-25 Site to potential technologies that can remediate these problems. The TLD technique identifies the research necessary to develop these technologies to a state that allows for technology transfer and application to waste management, remedial action, and decontamination and decommissioning activities. The TLD consists of four separate volumes-Vol. 1, Vol. 2, Vol. 3A, and Vol. 3B. Volume 1 provides introductory and overview information about the TLD. Volume 2 contains logic diagrams. Volume 3 has been divided into two separate volumes to facilitate handling and use. This report is part A of Volume 3 concerning characterization, decontamination, and dismantlement.

    I read with great interest the paper on {open_quotes}Prenatal Diagnosis of 45,X/46,XX mosaicism and 45,X: Implications for Postnatal Outcome{close_quotes} by Koeberl et al. They reported their experience with 12 prenatally diagnosed cases of 45,X/46,XX mosaicism and made a clinical comparison between those 12 cases and their own 41 postnatally diagnosed cases of 45,X/46,XX mosaicism. As expected, they found an overall milder phenotypic manifestation in the prenatal cases than in the postnatal ones. These authors report a lack of previous prognostic information on this type of prenatally diagnosis of mosaicism and offer their findings to fill this need. However, considerable information on this topic has been published. There have been >200 prenatally diagnosed cases of 45,X/46,XX. According to my data on 189 cases with a prenatal diagnosis of 45,X/46,XX mosaicism (Hsu 1992), there are 114 cases with available information on phenotypic outcome. Of these, 12 (10.5%) were reported to have some features of Turner syndrome, 4 had other anomalies probably not related to Turner syndrome, and 2 resulted in stillbirth. The overall rate for an abnormal phenotype in this category was thus 16/114 (14.03%). However, we must realize that, even in patients with a nonmosaic 45,X complement, the major features of Turner syndrome, such as short stature and sexual infantilism, are manifested only later in childhood or in adolescence. 3 refs.

  10. Minimum-volume-constrained nonnegative matrix factorization: enhanced ability of learning parts.

    2011-10-01

    Nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) with minimum-volume-constraint (MVC) is exploited in this paper. Our results show that MVC can actually improve the sparseness of the results of NMF. This sparseness is L(0)-norm oriented and can give desirable results even in very weak sparseness situations, thereby leading to the significantly enhanced ability of learning parts of NMF. The close relation between NMF, sparse NMF, and the MVC_NMF is discussed first. Then two algorithms are proposed to solve the MVC_NMF model. One is called quadratic programming_MVC_NMF (QP_MVC_NMF) which is based on quadratic programming and the other is called negative glow_MVC_NMF (NG_MVC_NMF) because it uses multiplicative updates incorporating natural gradient ingeniously. The QP_MVC_NMF algorithm is quite efficient for small-scale problems and the NG_MVC_NMF algorithm is more suitable for large-scale problems. Simulations show the efficiency and validity of the proposed methods in applications of blind source separation and human face images analysis.

  20. High temperature increases the masculinization rate of the all-female (XX rainbow trout "Mal" population.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Karina Valdivia

    Full Text Available Salmonids are generally considered to have a robust genetic sex determination system with a simple male heterogamety (XX/XY. However, spontaneous masculinization of XX females has been found in a rainbow trout population of gynogenetic doubled haploid individuals. The analysis of this masculinization phenotype transmission supported the hypothesis of the involvement of a recessive mutation (termed mal. As temperature effect on sex differentiation has been reported in some salmonid species, in this study we investigated in detail the potential implication of temperature on masculinization in this XX mal-carrying population. Seven families issued from XX mal-carrying parents were exposed from the time of hatching to different rearing water temperatures ((8, 12 and 18°C, and the resulting sex-ratios were confirmed by histological analysis of both gonads. Our results demonstrate that masculinization rates are strongly increased (up to nearly two fold at the highest temperature treatment (18°C. Interestingly, we also found clear differences between temperatures on the masculinization of the left versus the right gonads with the right gonad consistently more often masculinized than the left one at lower temperatures (8 and 12°C. However, the masculinization rate is also strongly dependent on the genetic background of the XX mal-carrying families. Thus, masculinization in XX mal-carrying rainbow trout is potentially triggered by an interaction between the temperature treatment and a complex genetic background potentially involving some part of the genetic sex differentiation regulatory cascade along with some minor sex-influencing loci. These results indicate that despite its rather strict genetic sex determinism system, rainbow trout sex differentiation can be modulated by temperature, as described in many other fish species.

    XX 'pure' gonadal dysgenesis is a disease related to Turner's syndrome. Patients of this disease are characterized by normal female external genitalia, bilateral streak gonads, amenorrhea and sexual infantilism. Recently, it has been reported that point mutations of the FSH receptor gene may be one of cause of this disease. The relationship between criminal behavior and XYY syndrome is still controversial. Increased incidence of disomic sperm in 47,XYY males has been reported by fluorescent in situ hybridization(FISH). Genetic counseling should be done when they undergo intracytoplasmic sperm injection.

    Full Text Available Prenatal diagnosis of simultaneous occurrence of chimerism and autosomal mosaicism is extremely rare. We report the prenatal diagnosis and genetic analysis of a fetus in a twin pregnancy with mosaic 47,XX,+21/46,XX with chimeric XX/XY. A 36-year-old, para 1, woman was referred for genetic counseling at 20 weeks' gestation because of abnormal karyotype (47,XX,+21/46,XX in one fetus in a twin pregnancy. Cordocentesis revealed 47,XX,+21[3]/46,XX[35]/46,XY[7] in this fetus. Postnatal cytogenetic analysis of cord blood confirmed three cell lines in this twin (A and 46,XY in the co-twin (B. Postmortem pathologic findings of both fetuses were normal. Fluorescence in situ hybridization identified three cell lines in the cord blood of twin A. Molecular genetic analysis using polymorphic DNA markers revealed parental origin of fetal tissue, and confirmed the chimeric status. Molecular genetic analysis with polymorphic DNA markers help to differentiate chimerism from mosaicism and define the origin of cell lines, which may have importance in genetic counseling.

    We examined a 32-year-old man with a 4-year history of infertility. The man's sex life, male hair pattern, and penis were normal, and he had no history of erection problems. Left and right testicular volumes were 2 ml and 3 ml, respectively. Semen analysis showed no sperm. The endocrine panel revealed increased serum luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone levels, and a normal serum testosterone level. A testicular biopsy demonstrated that both Leydig cell and Sertoli cell hyperplasia were present, and that no germ cells were found in the tubules. A chromosome analysis done on the peripheral blood lymphocytes revealed a karyotype of 46, XX. We identified the sex-determining region, Y, by polymerase chain reaction using Y-specific probes in this patient. The diagnosis was XX male.

    1997-12-01

    This report provides perspectives gained by reviewing 75 Individual Plant Examination (IPE) submittals pertaining to 108 nuclear power plant units. IPEs are probabilistic analyses that estimate the core damage frequency (CDF) and containment performance for accidents initiated by internal events. The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reviewed the IPE submittals with the objective of gaining perspectives in three major areas: (1) improvements made to individual plants as a result of their IPEs and the collective results of the IPE program, (2) plant-specific design and operational features and modeling assumptions that significantly affect the estimates of CDF and containment performance, and (3) strengths and weaknesses of the models and methods used in the IPEs. These perspectives are gained by assessing the core damage and containment performance results, including overall CDF, accident sequences, dominant contributions to component failure and human error, and containment failure modes. Methods, data, boundary conditions, and assumptions used in the IPEs are considered in understanding the differences and similarities observed among the various types of plants. This report is divided into three volumes containing six parts. Part 1 is a summary report of the key perspectives gained in each of the areas identified above, with a discussion of the NRC`s overall conclusions and observations. Part 2 discusses key perspectives regarding the impact of the IPE Program on reactor safety. Part 3 discusses perspectives gained from the IPE results regarding CDF, containment performance, and human actions. Part 4 discusses perspectives regarding the IPE models and methods. Part 5 discusses additional IPE perspectives. Part 6 contains Appendices A, B and C which provide the references of the information from the IPEs, updated PRA results, and public comments on draft NUREG-1560 respectively.

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Diffuse myocardial fibrosis, and to a lesser extent global myocardial edema, are important processes in heart disease which are difficult to assess or quantify with cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR using conventional late gadolinium enhancement (LGE or T1-mapping. Measurement of the myocardial extracellular volume fraction (ECV circumvents factors that confound T1-weighted images or T1-maps. We hypothesized that quantitative assessment of myocardial ECV would be clinically useful for detecting both focal and diffuse myocardial abnormalities in a variety of common and uncommon heart diseases. Methods A total of 156 subjects were imaged including 62 with normal findings, 33 patients with chronic myocardial infarction (MI, 33 with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM, 15 with non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM, 7 with acute myocarditis, 4 with cardiac amyloidosis, and 2 with systemic capillary leak syndrome (SCLS. Motion corrected ECV maps were generated automatically from T1-maps acquired pre- and post-contrast calibrated by blood hematocrit. Abnormally-elevated ECV was defined as >2SD from the mean ECV in individuals with normal findings. In HCM the size of regions of LGE was quantified as the region >2 SD from remote. Results Mean ECV of 62 normal individuals was 25.4 ± 2.5% (m ± SD, normal range 20.4%-30.4%. Mean ECV within the core of chronic myocardial infarctions (without MVO (N = 33 measured 68.5 ± 8.6% (p  Conclusions ECV mapping appears promising to complement LGE imaging in cases of more homogenously diffuse disease. The ability to display ECV maps in units that are physiologically intuitive and may be interpreted on an absolute scale offers the potential for detection of diffuse disease and measurement of the extent and severity of abnormal regions.

    This is the tenth Annual Site Environmental Report (ASER), documenting the progress of environmental programs at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP). The most significant change affecting the WIPP facility in 1993 was the cancellation of the Test Phase. All activities pertaining to the Test Phase will now be conducted at the Idaho National Engineering laboratory. Even though the cancellation of the Test Phase was a significant change in work scope for the WIPP, there are still numerous environmental monitoring and reporting activities that must be performed as a routine part of daily operations. These activities, and the WIPP's ability to demonstrate compliance with both state and federal environmental compliance requirements, are documented in this report. This report is a compilation and summarization of environmental data collected at the WIPP site.

    Statistical data on energy production and consumption and supporting information were obtained from US Bureau of Mines records supplemented by additional data obtained in Portugal. Geologic descriptions and analysis of known areas and of areas having possible future potential have been prepared by the US Geological Survey. Portugal lacks sufficient indigenous supplies of organic fuels to meet its energy demands, and so must import large quantities of petroleum and coal. Approximately 80% of Portugal's electric energy is produced by hydroelectric stations; thermal stations produce the other 20%. Portugal has produced no crude oil, natural gas, or condensate; no resources or reserves in these categories are listed for Portugal in the 1976 World Energy Conference report. Until the last year or so (1980), no significant onshore petroleum exploration had been done in Portugal since 1963. Production of coal in Portugal has declined steadily to the present annual yield of about 200,000 metric tons. On the basis of estimates in only three coal fields, resources of coal of all ranks in Portugal total at least 76 million (10/sup 6/) metric tons. Uranium is mined near Viseu and Guarda in the northern part of Portugal; the Nisa mine in east-central Portugal will begin producing uranium ore in 1985 after installation of a processing plant. Portugal produced 95 metric tons of uranium oxide (U/sub 3/O/sub 8/) from ore stocks in each year from 1972 through 1974; production is assumed to have continued at the same rate since then. Geothermal energy has not been developed in mainland Portugal; however, hot springs that may have geothermal energy potential are known in the Minho district in the northwest. Geothermal energy resources exist in the Azores and a program of evaluation and exploration with technical assistance from the USGS is presently in progress there.

    The second part of the sixth RHIC Spin Collaboration (RSC) meeting was held on November 15, 2001 at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Previous meetings have elaborated on the new generation of proton spin-structure studies (e.g. gluon polarization and flavor separation of q and {bar q} polarizations via real W{sup {+-}} production) enabled by studying polarized proton collisions at energies and momentum transfers where perturbative QCD models are expected to be applicable. The focus of this meeting was on many of the experimental issues that must be resolved to achieve these physics goals. This summary is written with the benefit of hindsight following the completion of the first-ever run of a polarized proton collider. This first run can be considered as a successfully completed milestone of the RHIC Spin Collaboration. Other milestones remain important. Long term machine items were identified in Waldo Mackay's talk, the most important being the completion of the spin rotator magnets that will be installed in 2002 to allow the flexible orientation of the proton beam polarization at the PHENM and STAR experiments. At the meeting Waldo discussed a stronger partial snake magnet for the AGS as a means of producing highly polarized proton beams to inject into RHIC. Developments subsequent to this meeting suggest that a superconducting helical dipole magnet may be feasible for the AGS, and is likely to be needed to achieve the 70% beam polarization in RHIC. Longer term items were also presented, including potential increases in luminosity by the addition of electron cooling to RHIC and the possibility of increasing the collision energy by {approx}20% by replacement of the DX magnets. These items could be considered for a second generation of RHIC spin experiments. The other topics covered at the meeting were related to polarimetry and to the absolute calibration of the proton beam polarization in RHIC. These topics were divided into short- and long-term solutions to

  17. Subminute measurements of SO2 at low parts per trillion by volume mixing ratios in the atmosphere

    Nicks, Dennis K., Jr.; Benner, Richard L.

    2001-11-01

    The continuous sulfur dioxide detector (CSD) is a sensitive instrument for reliable measurements at high time resolution in the atmosphere. This new instrument is based on a SO2 measurement technique utilizing the sulfur chemiluminescence detector, previously validated in a rigorously blind experiment sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Simplified sample handling, dénuder separation technology, and the intrinsic sensitivity and fast response of the detector permit measurement at levels below 100 parts per trillion by volume in tens of seconds with the CSD. The CSD provides a differential measurement where response from ambient SO2 is determined by the difference between air containing SO2 and air scrubbed of SO2, where both air samples contain other detectable sulfur species. Digital signal post processing with phase-locked amplification of the detector signal enhances the precision and temporal resolution of the CSD. Oversampling of the detector signal at 10 Hz permits subsequent data retrieval to be adapted to changing ambient levels by either enhancing signal to noise when sulfur dioxide levels are low or by maximizing temporal resolution of derived data when levels are high. he instrument has advantages over existing instruments based on Chromatographie separation in that the CSD provides accurate and reliable measurements at low parts per trillion by volume sulfur dioxide with high time resolution. The CSD is compact and automated and does not require cryogenic materials, making this instrument suitable for remote field locations. The high temporal resolution, specificity for SO2, and sensitivity of the CSD make it a good candidate for installation on an aircraft. Airborne studies of SO2 with a sensitive, fast time response instrument may offer new insight into the understanding of phenomena such as gas-to-particle conversion, long-range transport of pollutants, and the oxidation of biogenically produced sulfur gases.

    Full Text Available Hablar de las poetas mexicanas de nuestros días implica, desde luego, preguntarse por lo que significa “ser mujer” desde la poesía misma, pero, ¿qué tanto ha cambiado en la crítica literaria, esta definición? Los estudios de género nos muestran un péndulo que va de lo radicalmente diferente, en donde se habla incluso de una pretendida “invasión” de roles, hasta el sentido fragmentario, en el que la identidad es sólo un asomo del cuerpo, del gesto, de la mirada en el múltiple escenario de la cultura. El presente ensayo aborda esta problemática desde la obra de las principales poetas mexicanas del siglo XX; se trata de un ejercicio hermenéutico, basado en las ideas de Roman Ingarden sobre el mundo representado en La obra de arte literaria y en la noción de identidad de Néstor García Canclini publicados en Identidades en movimiento y Palabra en movimiento.

    Full Text Available Article is devoted to the last lexicographic project of V.P. Grigor’ev — to “Dictionary of Language of the XX Century Russian Poetry”. Against a background history of creation of the Dictionary, its genre characteristic is given as a complete consolidated (on 10 poets concordance of the commenting type with accurately thought-out over ratio of text material and of comments of the different contents. The main features of the organization of an entry are considered. There are a chronological ranging of examples in obligatory “zone of contexts”, which is allowing to build history of each separate word; a filling of facultative “meaning zone” with data on peculiarities of each lexeme semantics, of the stylistic accent of lexemes, etc., about variant connections with other units of the Dictionary. Entries from different volumes of the edition are used as illustrations. It is noted also, that already at an initial plan of the Dictionary there was an idea of its improvement, therefore work on the project is development and specification of the different parts of its concept today. Thus, the information on phraseological manifestations of the word was embedded into the last of the published volumes, by means of a special mark. Material of the description and interests of the user of the Dictionary prompted expediency of such step (for example, it is important to explain to modern reader that the combination of words ‘not to put okhulka on a hand’, which is found in article Okhulka ‘abuse’, means ‘not to miss the benefit’. The article also discusses the experience of use of the Dictionary data in other lexicographic projects and in various linguistic researches.

  6. Entanglement in the XX Spin Chain with Energy Current

    CERN Document Server

    Eisler, V

    2004-01-01

    We consider the ground state of the XX chain which is constrained to carry a current of energy. The von Neumann entropy of a block of $L$ neighboring spins, describing entanglement of the block with the rest of the chain, is computed. Recent calculations have revealed that the entropy in the XX model diverges logarithmically with the size of the subsystem. We show that the presence of the energy current increases the prefactor of the logarithmic growth. This result indicates that the emergence of the energy current gives rise to an increase of entanglement.

  11. LIFE Materials: Phase Formation and Transformations in Transmutation Fuel Materials for the LIFE Engine Part I - Path Forward Volume 3

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Turchi, P A; Kaufman, L; Fluss, M

    2008-12-19

    The current specifications of the LLNL fusion-fission hybrid proposal, namely LIFE, impose severe constraints on materials, and in particular on the nuclear fissile or fertile nuclear fuel and its immediate environment. This constitutes the focus of the present report with special emphasis on phase formation and phase transformations of the transmutation fuel and their consequences on particle and pebble thermal, chemical, and mechanical integrities. We first review the work that has been done in recent years to improve materials properties under the Gen-IV project, and with in particular applications to HTGR and MSR, and also under GNEP and AFCI in the USA. Our goal is to assess the nuclear fuel options that currently exist together with their issues. Among the options, it is worth mentioning TRISO, IMF, and molten salts. The later option will not be discussed in details since an entire report (Volume 8 - Molten-salt Fuels) is dedicated to it. Then, in a second part, with the specific LIFE specifications in mind, the various fuel options with their most critical issues are revisited with a path forward for each of them in terms of research, both experimental and theoretical. Since LIFE is applicable to very high burn-up of various fuels, distinctions will be made depending on the mission, i.e., energy production or incineration. Finally a few conclusions are drawn in terms of the specific needs for integrated materials modeling and the in depth knowledge on time-evolution thermo-chemistry that controls and drastically affects the performance of the nuclear materials and their immediate environment. Although LIFE demands materials that very likely have not yet been fully optimized, the challenges are not insurmountable, and a well concerted experimental-modeling effort should lead to dramatic advances that should well serve other fission programs such as Gen-IV, GNEP, AFCI as well as the international fusion program, ITER.

    2014-09-01

    The present volume contains the lectures and short talks given at the XX International School on Nuclear Physics, Neutron Physics and Applications. The School was held from 16-22 September 2013 in 'Club Hotel Bolero' located in 'Golden Sands' (Zlatni Pyasaci) Resort Complex on the Black Sea coast, near Varna, Bulgaria. The School was organized by the Institute for Nuclear Research and Nuclear Energy of Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. Co-organizer of the School was the Bulgarian Nuclear Regulatory Agency and the Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics of Joint Institute for Nuclear Research - Dubna. Financial support was also provided by the Bulgarian Ministry of Education and Science. According to the long-standing tradition the School has been held every second year since 1973. The School's program has been restructured according to our enlarged new international links and today it is more similar to an international conference than to a classical nuclear physics school. This new image attracts many young scientists and students from around the world. This year, 2013, we had the pleasure to welcome more than sixty distinguished scientists as lecturers. Additionally, twenty young colleagues received the opportunity to present a short contribution. Ninety-four participants altogether enjoyed the scientific presentations and discussions as well as the relaxing atmosphere at the beach and during the pleasant evenings. The program of the School ranged from latest results in fundamental areas such as nuclear structure and reactions to the hot issues of application of nuclear methods, reactor physics and nuclear safety. The main topics have been the following: Nuclear excitations at various energies. Nuclei at high angular moments and temperature. Structure and reactions far from stability. Symmetries and collective phenomena. Methods for lifetime measurements. Astrophysical aspects of nuclear structure. Neutron nuclear physics. Nuclear data. Advanced methods in

  18. Rare case of massive congenital bilateral chylothorax in a hydropic fetus with true mosaicism 47,XXX/46,XX.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Cremonini, Giorgio; Poggi, Alice; Capucci, Roberta; Vesce, Fortunato; Patella, Alfredo; Marci, Roberto

    2014-01-01

    Fetal congenital chylothorax is a rare condition that occurs sporadically or can be associated with abnormal karyotype or structural chromosomal anomalies. We report a unique case of fetal congenital bilateral chylothorax associated with mosaicism 47,XXX/46,XX. A female fetus affected by massive bilateral hydrothorax and ascites was diagnosed at 34(+1) weeks of gestation. Previous ultrasonographic exams were completely normal. Immune causes of hydrops were excluded. Elective cesarean section was performed soon after bilateral thoracocentesis. The analysis of drained pleural fluid revealed its lymphatic nature. The fetal karyotyping, performed on chorionic villi at the 11th week, had shown mosaicism 47,XXX/46,XX, later confirmed in the newborn's blood. We hypothesized that chylothorax may be part of the phenotypic spectrum of 47 XXX karyotype and we suggest an ultrasound follow-up of the fetus at closer intervals than the routine timing for this condition, even if it is not usually characterized by severe phenotypic features.

    The book is written paralelly in Serbian and English. The presence of works of Serbian astronomers and works in astronomical journals published by other Serbian scientists, in Science Citation Index within the period from 1945 up to the end of 2000, has been analyzed. Also is presented the list of 38 papers which had some influence on the development of astronomy in the twentieth century. A review of the development of astronomy in Serbia in the last century is given as well. Particular attention is payed to the Astronomical Observatory, the principal astronomical institution in Serbia, where it is one of the oldest scientific organizations and the only autonomous astronomical institute. Its past development forms an important part of the history of science and culture in these regions. In the book is also considered and the history of the university teaching of astronomy in Serbia after the second world war. First of all the development of the Chair of Astronomy at the Faculty of Mathematics in Belgrade, but also the teaching of astronomy at University in Novi Sad, Ni and Kragujevac is discussed. In addition to professional Astronomy, well developed in Serbia is also the amateur Astronomy. In the review is first of all included the largest and the oldest organization of amateur-astronomers in Serbia, founded in 1934. Besides, here are the Astronomical Society "Novi Sad", ADNOS and Research Station "Petnica". In Valjevo, within the framework of the Society of researchers "Vladimir Mandic - Manda", there is active also the Astronomical Group. In Kragujevac, on the roof of the Institute of Physics of the Faculty of Sciences, there is the "Belerofont" Observatory. In Ni, at the close of the sixties and the start of the seventies, there was operating a branch of the Astronomical Society "Rudjer Bokovic", while at the Faculty of Philosophy there existed in the period 1976-1980 the "Astro-Geophysical Society".

    Volume II of the Solar/Hydrogen Systems Assessment contract report (2 volumes) is basically a technological source book. Relying heavily on expert contributions, it comprehensively reviews constituent technologies from which can be assembled a wide range of specific solar/hydrogen systems. Covered here are both direct and indirect solar energy conversion technologies; respectively, those that utilize solar radiant energy input directly and immediately, and those that absorb energy from a physical intermediary, previously energized by the sun. Solar-operated hydrogen energy production technologies are also covered in the report. The single most prominent of these is water electrolysis. Utilization of solar-produced hydrogen is outside the scope of the volume. However, the important hydrogen delivery step is treated under the delivery sub-steps of hydrogen transmission, distribution and storage. An exemplary use of the presented information is in the synthesis and analysis of those solar/hydrogen system candidates documented in the report's Volume I. Morever, it is intended that broad use be made of this technology information in the implementation of future solar/hydrogen systems. Such systems, configured on either a distributed or a central-plant basis, or both, may well be of major significance in effecting an ultimate transition to renewable energy systems.

    The metaphorical applications of heavenly bodies and phenomena in Western Armenian poetry at the beginning of the XX century are very diverse and of great variety. Art Workers eulogize the creation of God, admire the beauty of stars, and perceive the man as a part of nature and in the close connection with all other parts. These units are often used for bringing to light one's inner life, his old gone paths, expectations and hopes, many times they become the heart and the basis of poetical image and create unique beauty.

  18. Transport of solid commodities via freight pipeline: cost estimating methodology. Volume III, parts A and B. First year final report

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Warner, J.A.; Morlok, E.K.; Gimm, K.K.; Zandi, I.

    1976-07-01

    In order to examine the feasibility of an intercity freight pipeline, it was necessary to develop cost equations for various competing transportation modes. This volume presents cost-estimating equations for rail carload, trailer-on-flatcar, truck, and freight pipeline. Section A presents mathematical equations that approximate the fully allocated and variable costs contained in the ICC cost tables for rail carload, trailer-on-flatcar (TOFC) and truck common-carrier intercity freight movements. These equations were developed to enable the user to approximate the ICC costs quickly and easily. They should find use in initial studies of costs where exact values are not needed, such as in consideration of rate changes, studies of profitability, and in general inter-modal comparisons. Section B discusses the development of a set of engineering cost equations for pneumo-capsule pipelines. The development was based on an analysis of system components and can readily be extended to other types of pipeline. The model was developed for the purpose of a feasibility study. It employs a limited number of generalized parameters and its use is recommended when sufficient detailed and specific engineering information is lacking. These models were used in the comparison of modes presented in Volume I and hence no conclusions regarding relative costs or service of the modes are presented here. The primary conclusion is that the estimates of costs resulting from these models is subject to considerable uncertainty.

    Magnetic helicity is a conserved quantity of ideal magneto-hydrodynamics characterized by an inverse turbulent cascade. Accordingly, it is often invoked as one of the basic physical quantities driving the generation and structuring of magnetic fields in a variety of astrophysical and laboratory plasmas. We provide here the first systematic comparison of six existing methods for the estimation of the helicity of magnetic fields known in a finite volume. All such methods are reviewed, benchmarked, and compared with each other, and specifically tested for accuracy and sensitivity to errors. To that purpose, we consider four groups of numerical tests, ranging from solutions of the three-dimensional, force-free equilibrium, to magneto-hydrodynamical numerical simulations. Almost all methods are found to produce the same value of magnetic helicity within few percent in all tests. In the more solar-relevant and realistic of the tests employed here, the simulation of an eruptive flux rope, the spread in the computed values obtained by all but one method is only 3 %, indicating the reliability and mutual consistency of such methods in appropriate parameter ranges. However, methods show differences in the sensitivity to numerical resolution and to errors in the solenoidal property of the input fields. In addition to finite volume methods, we also briefly discuss a method that estimates helicity from the field lines' twist, and one that exploits the field's value at one boundary and a coronal minimal connectivity instead of a pre-defined three-dimensional magnetic-field solution.

    Steroidogenic factor 1 (NR5A1, SF‐1, Ad4BP) is a transcriptional regulator of genes involved in adrenal and gonadal development and function. Mutations in NR5A1 have been among the most frequently identified genetic causes of gonadal development disorders and are associated with a wide phenotypic spectrum. In 46,XY individuals, NR5A1‐related phenotypes may range from disorders of sex development (DSD) to oligo/azoospermia, and in 46,XX individuals, from 46,XX ovotesticular and testicular DSD to primary ovarian insufficiency (POI). The most common 46,XY phenotype is atypical or female external genitalia with clitoromegaly, palpable gonads, and absence of Müllerian derivatives. Notably, an undervirilized external genitalia is frequently seen at birth, while spontaneous virilization may occur later, at puberty. In 46,XX individuals, NR5A1 mutations are a rare genetic cause of POI, manifesting as primary or secondary amenorrhea, infertility, hypoestrogenism, and elevated gonadotropin levels. Mothers and sisters of 46,XY DSD patients carrying heterozygous NR5A1 mutations may develop POI, and therefore require appropriate counseling. Moreover, the recurrent heterozygous p.Arg92Trp NR5A1 mutation is associated with variable degrees of testis development in 46,XX patients. A clear genotype‐phenotype correlation is not seen in patients bearing NR5A1 mutations, suggesting that genetic modifiers, such as pathogenic variants in other testis/ovarian‐determining genes, may contribute to the phenotypic expression. Here, we review the published literature on NR5A1‐related disease, and discuss our findings at a single tertiary center in Brazil, including ten novel NR5A1 mutations identified in 46,XY DSD patients. The ever‐expanding phenotypic range associated with NR5A1 variants in XY and XX individuals confirms its pivotal role in reproductive biology, and should alert clinicians to the possibility of NR5A1 defects in a variety of phenotypes presenting with gonadal

    In this paper, we study the quantum properties for a system that consists of a central atom interacting with surrounding spins through the Heisenberg XX couplings of equal strength. Employing the Heisenberg equations of motion we manage to derive an exact solution for the dynamical operators. We consider that the central atom and its surroundings are initially prepared in the excited state and in the coherent spin state, respectively. For this system, we investigate the evolution of variance squeezing and entanglement. The nonclassical effects have been remarked in the behavior of all components of the system. The atomic variance can exhibit revival-collapse phenomenon based on the value of the detuning parameter.

    This paper considers the chaos synchronization of the modified Chua 's circuit with x|x| function. We firstly show that a couple of the modified Chua systems with different parameters and initial conditions can be synchronized using active control when the values of parameters both in drive system and response system are known aforehand.Furthermore, based on Lyapunov stability theory we propose an adaptive active control approach to make the states of two identical Chua systems with unknown constant parameters asymptotically synchronized. Moreover the designed controller is independent of those unknown parameters. Numerical simulations are given to validate the proposed synchronization approach.

    This volume documents the preliminary design developed for the Solar Total Energy System to be installed at Fort Hood, Texas. Current system, subsystem, and component designs are described and additional studies which support selection among significant design alternatives are presented. Overall system requirements which form the system design basis are presented. These include program objectives; performance and output load requirements; industrial, statutory, and regulatory standards; and site interface requirements. Material in this section will continue to be issued separately in the Systems Requirements Document and maintained current through revision throughout future phases of the project. Overall system design and detailed subsystem design descriptions are provided. Consideration of operation and maintenance is reflected in discussion of each subsystem design as well as in an integrated overall discussion. Included are the solar collector subsystem; the thermal storage subsystem, the power conversion sybsystem (including electrical generation and distribution); the heating/cooling and domestic hot water subsystems; overall instrumentation and control; and the STES building and physical plant. The design of several subsystems has progressed beyond the preliminary stage; descriptions for such subsystems are therefore provided in more detail than others to provide complete documentation of the work performed. In some cases, preliminary design parameters require specific verificaton in the definitive design phase and are identified in the text. Subsystem descriptions will continue to be issued and revised separately to maintain accuracy during future phases of the project. (WHK)

  13. Reanalysis of multi-temporal aerial images of Storglaciären, Sweden (1959–99 – Part 1: Determination of length, area, and volume changes

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Full Text Available Storglaciären, located in the Kebnekaise massif in northern Sweden, has a long history of glaciological research. Early photo documentations date back to the late 19th century. Measurements of front position variations and distributed mass balance have been carried out since 1910 and 1945/46, respectively. In addition to these in-situ measurements, aerial photographs have been taken at decadal intervals since the beginning of the mass balance monitoring program and were used to produce topographic glacier maps. Inaccuracies in the maps were a challenge to early attempts to derive glacier volume changes and resulted in major differences when compared to the direct glaciological mass balances. In this study, we reanalyzed dia-positives of the original aerial photographs of 1959, -69, -80, -90 and -99 based on consistent photogrammetric processing. From the resulting digital elevation models and orthophotos, changes in length, area, and volume of Storglaciären were computed between the survey years, including an assessment of related errors. Between 1959 and 1999, Storglaciären lost an ice volume of 19×106 m3, which corresponds to a cumulative ice thickness loss of 5.69 m and a mean annual loss of 0.14 m. This ice loss resulted largely from a strong volume loss during the period 1959–80 and was partly compensated during the period 1980–99. As a consequence, the glacier shows a strong retreat in the 1960s, a slowing in the 1970s, and pseudo-stationary conditions in the 1980s and 1990s.

    Quantum phase transitional behavior of a finite periodic XX spin-12 chain with nearest neighbor interaction in a uniform transverse field is studied based on the simple exact solutions. It is found that there are [N/2] level-crossing points in the ground state, where N is the periodic number of the system and [x] stands for the integer part of x, when the interaction strength and magnitude of the magnetic field satisfy certain conditions. The quantum phase transitional behavior in the thermodynamic is also studied.

    Aided by its consultant, the US Geologic Survey (USGS), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reviewed ''Seismic Hazard Methodology for the Central and Eastern United States.'' This topical report was submitted jointly by the Seismicity Owners Group (SOG) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) in July 1986 and was revised in February 1987. The NRC staff concludes that SOG/EPRI Seismic Hazard Methodology as documented in the topical report and associated submittals, is an acceptable methodology for use in calculating seismic hazard in the Central and Eastern United States (CEUS). These calculations will be based upon the data and information documented in the material that was submitted as the SOG/EPRI topical report and ancillary submittals. However, as part of the review process the staff conditions its approval by noting areas in which problems may arise unless precautions detailed in the report are observed. 23 refs.

    The IFR-1 Test, designated as the AK-181 Test Assembly, will be the first irradiation test of wire wrapped, sodium-bonded metallic fuel elements in the Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF). The test is part of the Integral Fast Reactor (IFR) fuels program conducted by Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) in support of the Innovative Reactor Concepts Program sponsored by the US Department of Energy (DOE). One subassembly, containing 169 fuel elements, will be irradiated for 600 full power days to achieve 10 at.% burnup. Three metal fuel alloys (U-10Zr, U-8Pu-10Zr) will be irradiated in D9 cladding tubes. The metal fuel elements have a fuel-smeared density of 75% and each contains five slugs. The enriched zone contains three slugs and is 36-in. long. One 6.5-in. long depleted uranium axial blanket slug (DU-10Zr) was loaded at each end of the enriched zone. the fuel elements were fabricated at ANL-W and delivered to Westinghouse-Hanford for wirewrapping and assembly into the test article. This Test Design Description contains relevant data on compositions, densities, dimensions and weights for the cast fuel slugs and completed fuel elements. The elements conform to the requirements in MG-22, "Users` Guide for the Irradiation of Experiments in the FTR."

    2013-02-01

    We report on the development of high power, 9xx-10xx nm laser diode bars for use in direct diode systems and for solidstate and fibre laser pumping with applications in industrial markets. For 1 cm wide bars on micro channel cooler (MCC) we have achieved a reliable output power of 250 W across the 900 nm - 1060 nm range. At this output power level we have achieved power conversion efficiencies of 65-66 % and 90 % power content slow axis beam divergence of ~6.5°. Results of a 6400 h life test show an average power degradation of 0.6 % per 1000 h at this operating power level. We will also show results of high power bars assembled on the new OCLARO conductive cooler, the BLM. This new cooler has a small footprint of 12.6 mm × 24.8 mm and is designed for lateral or vertical stacking of diodes in multi kilowatt systems but with the benefits associated with a conductive cooler. The thermal properties are shown to be the same as for a standard CS mount. 1 cm wide high fill factor bars and 0.5 cm wide low fill factor half bars assembled on the BLM operate at 63-64 % power conversion efficiency (PCE) with output powers of up to 250 W and 150 W, respectively.

    This section of the Radioactive Waste Management Complex (RWMC) Part B permit application describes the waste characteristics Of the transuranic (TRU) mixed wastes at the RWMC waste management units to be permitted: the Intermediate-Level Transuranic Storage Facility (ILTSF) and the Waste Storage Facility (WSF). The ILTSF is used to store radioactive remote-handled (RH) wastes. The WSF will be used to store radioactive contact-handled (CH) wastes. The Transuranic Storage Area (TSA) was established at the RWMC to provide interim storage of TRU waste. Department of Energy (DOE) Order 5820.2A defines TRU waste as waste contaminated with alpha-emitting transuranium radionuclides with half-lives greater than 20 years in concentrations greater than 100 nanocuries per gram (nCi/g) o f waste material. The TSA serves generators both on and off the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL). The ILTSF is located at the TSA, and the WSF will be located there also. Most of the wastes managed at the TSA are mixed wastes, which are radioactive wastes regulated under the Atomic Energy Act (AEA) that also contain hazardous materials regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and the Idaho Hazardous Waste Management Regulations. These wastes include TRU mixed wastes and some low-level mixed wastes. Accordingly, the TSA is subject to the permitting requirements of RCRA and the Idaho Administrative Procedures Act (IDAPA). Prior to 1982, DOE orders defined TRU wastes as having transuranium radionuclides in concentrations greater than 10 nCi/g, The low-level mixed wastes managed at the TSA are those wastes with 10 to 100 nCi/g of TRU radionuclides that prior to 1982 were considered TRU waste.

  12. [The Epistolarum medicinalium libri XX by Giovanni Mainardi].

    Carrara, Daniela Mugnai

    2005-01-01

    The paper aims at highlighting some aspects of the Epistolarum medicinalium libri XX by Giovanni Mainardi. This work, that enjoyed an European repute and was reprinted many times, has to be set against the background of the early 16th century attempts at reforming medical education. Mainardi, a skilled humanist and the pupil of Nicolb Leoniceno and Pico della Mirandola, advocated a return to the original sources of Greek and Latin medical thought. The choice of Epistolae as a literary genre was in itself meaningful, in that it allowed Mainardi an unusual freedom of expression on the whole range of medical problems. Mainardi advocated the notion of medicine as ars - not scientia - and he believed in disengaging it from natural philosophy in the Aristotelian sense. At the same time, he believed in the possibility of introducing novelties in medicine, and of correcting ancient but incorrect textual traditions.

    Full Text Available Although true hermaphrodite is uncommon, it has been reported in more than 400 individuals. Tumours arising in the gonads of true hermaphrodite is a very rare finding and only very few cases have been reported in the literature. We report a case of a 35-year-old phenotype man with bilateral undescended testis with lump hypogastrium. On examination, he had an ovotestis on one side and pure seminoma arising in testis on the other side. The seminoma arising in the left undescended testis was successfully treated by excision and combination chemotherapy. Cytogenetic studies revealed that 46XX karyotype with primer specific for the sex-determining region of the Y chromosome was negative. The karyotypic abnormality noticed in the patient is also reviewed in the article.

    In Europe, the EC co-funded project FAST20XX aims at exploring the borderline between aviation and space by investigating suborbital vehicles. The main focus is the identification and mastering of critical technologies for such vehicles rather than the vehicle development itself. Besides the objectives and overall layout of the project, the paper addresses also the progress made during the first period of the project. Two vehicle concepts are considered. A first one is a space vehicle launched from an airplane providing a low-energy ballistic flight experience using hybrid propulsion. The second is a vertically starting two-stage rocket space vehicle system concept taken as a basis to identify the conditions and constraints experienced during high- energy suborbital ultra-fast transport. The paper mainly discusses the two actual reference vehicles and the technical aspects of prerequisites for commercial operation including safety, human spaceflight, business cases, environmental and legal issues.

    Carriers of isodicentric Y (idicY) mosaicism exhibit a wide range of clinical features, including short stature, gonadal abnormalities, and external genital anomalies. However, the phenotypic spectrum for individuals carrying an idicY and a 46, XX cell line is less clearly defined. A more complete description of the phenotype related to idicY is thus essential to guide management related to pubertal development, fertility, and gonadoblastoma risk in mosaic carriers. Findings from the evaluation of twin females with an abnormal karyotype, 48, XX, +idic(Yq) x2/47, XX, +idic(Yq)/46, XX, are presented to highlight the importance of interdisciplinary care in the management of multifaceted disorders of sex development.

  4. Thermodynamics of a dilute XX chain in a field

    2016-06-01

    Gapless phases in ground states of low-dimensional quantum spin systems are rather ubiquitous. Their peculiarity is a remarkable sensitivity to external perturbations due to permanent criticality of such phases manifested by a slow (power-low) decay of pair correlations and the divergence of the corresponding susceptibility. A strong influence of various defects on the properties of the system in such a phase can then be expected. Here, we consider the influence of vacancies on the thermodynamics of the simplest quantum model with a gapless phase, the isotropic spin-1/2 XX chain. The existence of the exact solution of this model gives a unique opportunity to describe in detail the dramatic effect of dilution on the gapless phase—the appearance of an infinite series of quantum phase transitions resulting from level crossing under the variation of a longitudinal magnetic field. We calculate the jumps in the field dependences of the ground-state longitudinal magnetization, susceptibility, entropy, and specific heat appearing at these transitions and show that they result in a highly nonlinear temperature dependence of these parameters at low T. Also, the effect of enhancement of the magnetization and longitudinal correlations in the dilute chain is established. The changes of the pair spin correlators under dilution are also analyzed. The universality of the mechanism of the quantum transition generation suggests that similar effects of dilution can also be expected in gapless phases of other low-dimensional quantum spin systems.

    One spin excitation states are involved in the transmission of quantum states and entanglement through a quantum spin chain, the localization properties of these states are crucial to achieve the transfer of information from one extreme of the chain to the other. We investigate the bipartite entanglement and localization of the one excitation states in a quantum XX chain with one impurity. The bipartite entanglement is obtained using the concurrence and the localization is analyzed using the inverse participation ratio (IPR). Changing the strength of the exchange coupling of the impurity allows us to control the number of localized or extended states. The analysis of the IPR allows us to identify scenarios where the transmission of quantum states or entanglement can be achieved with a high degree of fidelity. In particular, we identify a regime where the transmission of quantum states between the extremes of the chain is executed in a short transmission time {approx}N/2, where N is the number of spins in the chain, and with a large fidelity.

Um ponto importante que a investigação sobre o acontecimento traz para os estudos semióticos é a possibilidade de traduzir as operações discursivas de determinados textos, em termos de regimes discursivos do fato ou do acontecimento, a partir do reconhecimento de duas lógicas operantes distintas, respectivamente a implicativa e a concessiva. Este artigo faz parte de uma investigação maior que procura depreender e descrever as operações discursivas de algumas obras representativas do discurso literário do século XX, nas quais o “acontecimento” parece exercer um papel significativo. A título de ilustração das refl exões desenvolvidas no presente texto, serão abordadas obras de autores como Jean-Paul Sartre, Franz Kafka, Dino Buzzati e Samuel Beckett.

    The Oak Ridge K-25 Technology Logic Diagram (TLD), a decision support tool for the K-25 Site, was developed to provide a planning document that relates environmental restoration (ER) and waste management (WN) problems at the Oak Ridge K-25 Site. The TLD technique identifies the research necessary to develop these technologies to a state that allows for technology transfer and application to waste management, remediation, decontamination, and decommissioning activities. The TLD consists of four separate volumes-Vol. 1, Vol. 2, Vol. 3A, and Vol. 3B. Volume 1 provides introductory and overview information about the TLD. Volume 2 contains logic diagrams. Volume 3 has been divided into two separate volumes to facilitate handling and use. This volume 3 B provides the Technology Evaluation Data Sheets (TEDS) for ER/WM activities (Remedial Action Robotics and Automation, Waste Management) that are referenced by a TEDS code number in Vol. 2 of the TLD. Each of these sheets represents a single logic trace across the TLD. These sheets contain more detail than each technology in Vol. 2. The TEDS are arranged alphanumerically by the TEDS code number in the upper right corner of each data sheet. Volume 3 can be used in two ways: (1) technologies that are identified from Vol. 2 can be referenced directly in Vol. 3 by using the TEDS codes, and (2) technologies and general technology areas (alternatives) can be located in the index in the front of this volume.

La incorporación de un número significativo de inmigrantes a finales del siglo XIX junto a un proceso de reorganización productiva asociado al desarrollo de la industria vitivinícola, implicó cambios en las relaciones sociales y en las condiciones de vida de amplios sectores de la población mendocina. Iniciado el siglo XX, la vitivinicultura se convirtió en la principal actividad productiva de la provincia y la más importante en su rubro a nivel nacional. Los viñateros, productores agroindustriales, industriales bodegueros, contratistas de viñas , etc., fueron constituyéndose en parte de una sociedad cada vez más heterogénea y diversa, producto del desarrollo capitalista que experimentó la región desde el último tercio del siglo XIX y que se insertó en el proceso de incorporación de la economía Argentina al mercado mundial. Este período resulta de suma importancia porque se determinó un sistema productivo en torno a la actividad vitivinícola de la provincia que dio forma al mercado de trabajo regional. En este contexto, la inserción de los trabajadores se dio de una manera muy dispar en el proceso productivo, caracterizado por una alta estacionalidad y una escasa especialización de la mano de obra requerida.The aim of this work is to analyze the changes and continuities during the process of formation of the labor market in the province of Mendoza in the early 1900s.

    2014-01-01

    The evolution of theoretical physics in the XX century differs significantly from that in XVII-XIX centuries. While continuous progress is observed for theoretical physics in XVII-XIX centuries, modern physics contains many questions that have not been resolved despite many decades of discussion. Based upon the analysis of works by the founders of the XX-century physics, the conclusion is made that the roots of the "eternal" questions by the XX-century theoretical physics lie in the philosophy used by its founders. The conclusion is made about the need to use the ideas of philosophy that guided C. Huygens, I. Newton, W. Thomson (Lord Kelvin), J. K. Maxwell, and the other great physicists of the XVII-XIX centuries, in all areas of theoretical physics.

    Patients with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) owing to 21-hydroxylase deficiency and whose karyotype is 46, XX are usually assigned to the female gender. Reported herein are the long term outcomes in three patients with CAH whose karyotype is 46, XX and who were reared as males. A retrospective review of three CAH patients with a 46, XX karyotype who were reared as males was conducted. Gender assignment, clinical and biochemical data, pre and post-genitoplasty genital examinations were reviewed. Gender identity was tested by an extensive questionnaire. Gender role, sexual preference, marital status and sexual satisfaction were evaluated by interview. The three patients were genotyped for the CYP21A2 gene confirming the diagnosis of CAH. Owing to genital virilization, cultural preferences for male gender and the lack of newborn screening programs the three patients reported herein were assigned to the male gender at birth before the diagnosis of CAH was established. In adulthood the patients remained significantly virilized. Thorough psychosexual assessments in adulthood revealed well established male gender identities compatible with their male gender assignments at birth. In all three patients, gender role and behavior were consistent with male gender identity including sexual intercourse with female partners. The three patients reported herein revealed that male gender assignment to CAH patients with a 46, XX karyotype may have a successful outcome providing there is strong parental support and expert endocrine care. No standard guidelines have been published for the gender assignment of CAH patients with a 46, XX karyotype and genital ambiguity. More studies concerning gender assignment in CAH patients with a 46, XX karyotype reared as males are needed.

    SCALE--a modular code system for Standardized Computer Analyses Licensing Evaluation--has been developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory at the request of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The SCALE system utilizes well-established computer codes and methods within standard analysis sequences that (1) allow an input format designed for the occasional user and/or novice, (2) automate the data processing and coupling between modules, and (3) provide accurate and reliable results. System development has been directed at problem-dependent cross-section processing and analysis of criticality safety, shielding, heat transfer, and depletion/decay problems. Since the initial release of SCALE in 1980, the code system has been heavily used for evaluation of nuclear fuel facility and package designs. This revision documents Version 4.2 of the system. The manual is divided into three volumes: Volume 1--for the control module documentation, Volume 2--for functional module documentation; and Volume 3--for documentation of the data libraries and subroutine libraries. This volume discusses the following functional modules: MORSE-SGC; HEATING 7.2; KENO V.a; JUNEBUG-II; HEATPLOT-S; REGPLOT 6; PLORIGEN; and OCULAR.

    Full Text Available La finalidad de este artículo es presentar una perspectiva sobre las condiciones generales de vida y relaciones laborales de los trabajadores de las haciendas y ranchos del municipio de Zinacantepec en los siglos XIX y primera mitad del XX. Las haciendas y ranchos se fortalecieron durante el Porfiriato, uno de los planteamientos más aceptados señala que se logró en detrimento de la tierra de los habitantes de los pueblos, mismos que pasaron a formar parte del ejército de trabajo de estas unidades de producción, por lo que en este artículo también se analizarán las relaciones de interdependencia entre los dueños de las haciendas y los habitantes de los pueblos circunvecinos. Se define como trabajador al individuo que se adscribía voluntariamente para trabajar en el recinto de estas unidades productivas, desde españoles pobres, mestizos e indígenas. Los indígenas pertenecían a diversos grupos étnicos, como matlatzincas, otomíes, nahuas. Eran individuos que generalmente carecían de tierra propia. Los trabajadores de las haciendas recibieron diferentes denominaciones que se relacionaban con el cargo o actividad desempeñada. Estos aspectos les daban cierta jerarquía y a la vez dependencia. Existían varias clasificaciones, entre ellas la de los trabajadores permanentes, eventuales o temporales, y arrendatarios.

    1976-01-01

    A pyrex glass plate was fitted at the bottom of casting ring, and disk type wax pattern (thickness. 0.43 mm) was put on the plate. Five types of sprueing were applied. Pure tin was casted using holizontal centrifugal casting machine. Flow of molten metal was filmed by the motor drive camera with the method of stroboscope. The results were summarized as follows. 1) When the sprue was attached at the center of the disk type mold vertically, moten metal flowed like a concentric circle at the early stage of casting. It was affected gradually by the direction of gravity and revolution, and it filled the mold from the lower part to the upper part. 2) When the sprue gate was attached to the side edge of the mold, and the sprue gate was placed to the forward and backward direction against the revolution direction, molten metal filled from lower part to the upper part. 3) When the sprue gate was placed against upper edge, molten metal flow was affected by the direction of gravity and revolution. When the sprue gate was placed against lower edge, molten metal filled quietry from the lower part to the upper part. 4) Inflow volume per unit time (inflow rate) was small at the early stage of casting. Inflow rate increased and became constant at the next stage. At the latter stage it became small again. 5) Inflow rate increased with the increase of area of sprue. 6) The time which was necessary to fill the volume of 1 cm (about 80% of the mold volume) became short with the increase of area of sprue. It was also influenced by the type of sprueing.

    Full Text Available A través de este artículo se ha intentado dar una explicación —dentro del contexto español— al tradicional vínculo entre republicanismo, anticlericalismo y masonería. Para ello hemos recurrido a analizar la trayectoria de un hombre público, Carlos Esplá, que responde plenamente al perfil esencial del republicano del primer tercio del siglo XX. Se ha querido, otra cosa es que se haya conseguido, demostrar como en muchos casos tal vinculación no respondía tanto a cuestiones dogmáticas, como a motivaciones racionalistas o coyunturales. Es decir, buena parte de los republicanos eran anticlericales y masones, lo que no quería decir que fuesen antirreligiosos, ni tampoco que cumpliesen con los ritos y las consignas del Grande Oriente. Ambas militancias estaban estrechamente ligadas a una coyuntura histórica específica.Through this article we have tried to explain —within the spanish context— the traditional link between republicanism, anticlericalism and masonry. For that reason we have resorted to analise he career of a republic man, Carlos Esplá, who perfectly answers to the profile of the republican of the first third of the xx Century. We have, we don't know if we have succeeded, to show how in lots of cases such a connection doesn't have to do with dogmatic questions as much as rationalistic or current motives. A great idea of republicans were anticlerical and masons, which didn't mean they were anti-religious, ñor that they followed the rites and instructions of the Great East. Both affiliations/tendencies were closely linked to a specific historical situation.

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available Analysis of movement of Goc and podgorina population in the second half of XX and on the begging of XXI century is elaborated in the paper. Parameters of natural and mechanical movement of population have showed that population number of Goc and podgorina increase because of mechanical movement. In the period between two last censuses, the greater part of immigrants has arrived. Refugees and outcast population from Ex-Yugoslav Republics represents smaller part of immigrants. Greater part of immigrants belongs to population from others municipalities of Republic of Serbia, especially to population from Kosovo and from municipalities of Raska region. According to the results of exploration, there are many differences in the movements of population between twenty six settlements of Goc and podgorina. As consequences of that, among other, there are some geographic factors. Among geographic factors, traffic-geographic position and relief are relieved. Importance of the paper is that it enriches the knowledge about West Morava valley and Goc, which is northernmost mountain of Kopaonik mountain system.

    Highlights: • Pressure drop of NACA 0020 airfoil fin PCHE reduces strikingly in comparison with the zigzag PCHE. • Pressure drop of NACA 00XX airfoil fin PCHE decreases as airfoil thickness increases. • Heat transfer performance of NACA 00XX airfoil fin PCHE increases as airfoil thickness rises. • Comprehensive performance of NACA 00XX airfoil fin PCHE degrades as airfoil thickness increases. - Abstract: Printed circuit heat exchanger (PCHE) can be used in supercritical carbon dioxide (S-CO{sub 2}) Brayton cycle. The present study compares NACA 0020 airfoil fin PCHE with conventional zigzag PCHE by numerical analysis. Pressure drop of the former has a striking reduction while maintaining excellent heat transfer performance. Comparison on four NACA 00XX series airfoil fin PCHEs is performed to investigate the influence of airfoil profile on flow and heat transfer performance. With a fixed vertical pitch, heat transfer performance of NACA series airfoil fin PCHE increases as airfoil thickness increases. However, comprehensive performance, in which both flow and heat transfer are taken into account, degrades with increasing airfoil thickness. Among four NACA airfoil fin PCHEs presented in this paper, NACA 0010 airfoil fin PCHE demonstrates the best comprehensive performance.

    Full Text Available The most common karyotype of the Turner syndrome is 45,X, although it may occur as mosaic 45,X/46,XX. In the Provincial Medical Genetics Center, a 42-year-old pregnant woman underwent an amniocentesis which led to the detection of mosaic Turner Syndrome (45,X/46,XX. A male was diagnosed through ultrasound and a sample of amniotic fluid was sent to the National Medical Genetics Center to confirm it. A study of the SRY gene was completed and the result was positive. The patient decided to terminate the pregnancy. The pathology report showed a fetal corpse of 25, 3 weeks of gestation, with penis and morphologically normal scrotal sacs, presenting alterations by cysts and hypoplasia of the prostate and seminal vesicles as well as testicular absence. In the literature, cases of XX males are considered uncommon while those combining a mosaic 45, X/46, XX with a SRY gene are less addressed; and therein lies the importance of this case. This article presents the results of a prenatal diagnosis of this rare chromosomal aberration.

    The volumes in this authoritative series present a multidisciplinary approach to modeling and simulation of flows in the cardiovascular and ventilatory systems, especially multiscale modeling and coupled simulations. The cardiovascular and respiratory systems are tightly coupled, as their primary function is to supply oxygen to and remove carbon dioxide from the body's cells. Because physiological conduits have deformable and reactive walls, macroscopic flow behavior and prediction must be coupled to nano- and microscopic events in a corrector scheme of regulated mechanisms. Therefore, investigation of flows of blood and air in physiological conduits requires an understanding of the biology, chemistry, and physics of these systems together with the mathematical tools to describe their functioning.  The present volume is devoted to cellular events that allow adaptation to environmental conditions, particularly mechanotransduction. It begins with cell organization and a survey of cell types in the vasculatur...

    This data manual contains a hard copy of the information in the Nuclear Computerized Library for Assessing Reactor Reliability (NUCLARR) Version 3.5 database, which is sponsored by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission. NUCLARR was designed as a tool for risk analysis. Many of the nuclear reactors in the US and several outside the US are represented in the NUCLARR database. NUCLARR includes both human error probability estimates for workers at the plants and hardware failure data for nuclear reactor equipment. Aggregations of these data yield valuable reliability estimates for probabilistic risk assessments and human reliability analyses. The data manual is organized to permit manual searches of the information if the computerized version is not available. Originally, the manual was published in three parts. In this revision the introductory material located in the original Part 1 has been incorporated into the text of Parts 2 and 3. The user can now find introductory material either in the original Part 1, or in Parts 2 and 3 as revised. Part 2 contains the human error probability data, and Part 3, the hardware component reliability data.

    Full Text Available No final do século XIX e início do século XX, imigrantes e descendentes de imigrantes alemães radicados no Sul do Brasil passaram a promover a defesa da ideologia da germanidade ou do Deutschtum. A defesa dessa ideologia, que ao longo do tempo teve intensidade variada, despertou reações por parte de intelectuais e de homens do governo brasileiro, que estavam empenhados na construção do estado e da identidade nacional. Essas reações se mostraram mais acentuadas e notadas durante a Primeira e a Segunda guerras mundiais e deram origem ao mito do “perigo alemão”. O “perigo alemão” consistiu em um real ou hipotético patrocínio, por parte do imperialismo germânico, de uma secessão de territórios do Brasil Meridional, que deveriam ficar como área de influência econômica ou de dominação direta da Alemanha. Neste trabalho, objetiva-se enfocar como o alemanismo e o perigo alemão aparecem em algumas obras de intelectuais brasileiros na primeira metade do século XX. Silvio Romero, Graça Aranha, Vianna Moog e Bayard Mércio são os principais autores retratados.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho de cunho histórico teve como objetivo mapear as cartilhas e os livros de alfabetização que circularam na cidade de Birigui no século XX. Para que este objetivo fosse alcançado buscou-se em bibliografia especializada apropriar-se dos temas que envolvem a temática do estudo. Para o mapeamento das cartilhas e dos livros de alfabetização mais usados para ensinar a ler e escrever no presente município foi realizado entrevistas e levantamento de dados em todas as bibliotecas da cidade de Birigui. Com o levantamento realizado foi possível se chegar ao resultado final deste trabalho, que se apresenta dividido em três partes: na primeira, apresenta-se um breve histórico sobre a alfabetização, desde o final do século XIX, até a reforma no modelo de ensino com a implantação do construtivismo; em seguida apresentam-se os manuais de alfabetização: as cartilhas e os livros didáticos, discorrendo sobre suas características e utilização na alfabetização brasileira. Na segunda parte, inicia-se com um breve histórico sobre a cidade de Birigui, desde sua fundação, os primeiros habitantes, as primeiras casas, igrejas, escolas e fábricas, fatos importantes que aqui ocorreram, possibilitando o desenvolvimento do município, para em seguida apresentar os manuais escolares localizados nas bibliotecas da cidade, como também os citados nas entrevistas com os ex-professores alfabetizadores do município. Ao final, aponta-se uma junção e análise das duas primeiras partes, que nos remete a compreender como era direcionada a questão do ler e escrever em Birigui no século XX, isto é quais materiais foram utilizados para alfabetização. Desse modo contribui-se com um registro por meio do qual as futuras gerações poderão conhecer como era a alfabetização naquele período tendo por objetivo primeiro a preservação da memória e do patrimônio cultural quanto dos manuais utilizados.   Palavras-chaves: alfabetiza

    Full Text Available Finalizada la guerra de los Mil Días Colombia empezó el siglo XX con una pérdida geoestratégica notable, ya que perdió su condición natural de zona de posible tránsito interoceánico; la separación de la provincia panameña, afectó las relaciones entre Colombia y Estados Unidos, país que estaba interesado en la construcción del canal interoceánico por Panamá. En 1914 se firmó el tratado Urrutia-Thompson, mediante el cual Estados Unidos "compensaba" a Colombia por la pérdida de Panamá. Posterior a la ratificación del Tratado, el gobierno estadounidense buscó mejorar sus relaciones con Colombia, combinando misiones económicas y diplomáticas. El primer propósito de este trabajo es analizar históricamente la doctrina respice polum ("Mirar hacia el norte", acuñada en el período presidencial 1918-1921, valorando su repercusión en las demás relaciones internacionales de Colombia durante el siglo XX; doctrina según la cual Colombia debía orientar su política exterior hacia Estados Unidos. El propósito final es mostrar cómo esta doctrina hizo que durante gran parte del siglo XX Colombia presentara un "perfil bajo" (calificativo del teórico austriaco Gerhard Drekonja Kornat en cuanto a la relaciones con la comunidad internacional, tendencia que sólo empezó a modificarse parcialmente a finales de los años sesentas cuando se postuló la doctrina respice similia ("Mirar a tus semejantes".

    Two types of spruing methods were used in the casting of the denture type model pattern (thickness, 0.43 mm). Flow of molten metal in the mold was filmed by the improved system of Part 1. When three sprues were attached to the pattern vertically, molten metal passed through each sprue gate flowed being affected by the direction of gravity and revolution of casting machine, and gathered at the lower part of the mold. Next molten metal filled the mold from the lower part to the upper part. In this spruing type, molten metal turned its direction of flow several times. At the middle stage of casting, the inflow volume per unit time (inflow rate), v (mm3/10-2)s)was evaluated as v = 12.36 + 5.16A-0.16 A2 (A: total cross-sectional areas of sprues). The inflow rate increased with increase of the area of the sprues, but it saturated. When the main sprue and the subsprues were attached at the posterior border, the molten metal filled the mold from the lower part to the upper part quietly. In this spruing type, the casting mold was set facing its sprue gates downwards. The inflow rate at the middle stage of casting was evaluated as v = 21.05 + 1.79 C (C: the cross-sectional area of the main sprue). The inflow rate increased linearly with increase of the area of the main sprue.

Foram testados três volumes (V1 = xx cm³ -sacolas de polietileno de 7,5 x 11,5 cm; V2 = xx cm33 - sacolas de polietileno 10,0 x 16,5 cm; e V3 = xx cm33 -sacolas de polietileno de 15,0 x 21,5 cm e seis substratos (S1 = solo; S2 = Plantmax®; S3 = vermiculita; S4 = fibra de coco; S5 = fibra de coco chips; e S6 = Organosuper®, composto orgânico comercial. O delineamento experimental foi inteiramente casualizado, em esquema de parcelas subsubdivididas, em que os ambientes foram as parcelas, os recipientes de diferentes volumes as subparcelas e os substratos as subsubparcelas. Aos 50 dias após a semeadura, foram medidos a altura das plantas, o comprimento da raiz, a massa de matéria seca da parte aérea e das raízes. A partir das massas de matéria seca determinaram-se a relação massa de matéria seca de parte aérea e raiz e massa de matéria seca total. A estufa foi o melhor ambiente quando se utilizou o recipiente de XX cm33 o qual proporcionou mudas maiores, com maior biomassa seca aérea, radicular e total. A vermiculita foi o melhor substrato, porém o solo adubado é uma alternativa menos dispendiosa para a região.

  19. Subtractive and differential hybridization molecular analyses of Ceratitis capitata XX/XY versus XX embryos to search for male-specific early transcribed genes.

    The agricultural pest Ceratitis capitata, also known as the Mediterranean fruit fly or Medfly, is a fruit crop pest of very high economic relevance in different continents. The strategy to separate Ceratitis males from females (sexing) in mass rearing facilities is a useful step before the sterilization and release of male-only flies in Sterile Insect Technique control programs (SIT). The identification of genes having early embryonic male-specific expression, including Y-linked genes, such as the Maleness factor, could help to design novel and improved methods of sexing in combination with transgenesis, aiming to confer conditional female-specific lethality or female-to-male sexual reversal. We used a combination of Suppression Subtractive Hybrydization (SSH), Mirror Orientation Selection (MOS) anddifferential screening hybridization (DSH) techniques to approach the problem of isolating corresponding mRNAs expressed in XX/XY embryos versus XX-only embryos during a narrow developmental window (8-10 hours after egg laying, AEL ). Here we describe a novel strategy we have conceived to obtain relatively large amounts of XX-only embryos staged at 8-10 h AEL and so to extract few micrograms of polyA+ required to apply the complex technical procedure. The combination of these 3 techniques led to the identification of a Y-linked putative gene, CcGm2, sharing high sequence identity to a paralogous gene, CcGm1, localized either on an autosome or on the X chromosome. We propose that CcGm2 is a first interesting putative Y-linked gene which could play a role in sex determination. The function exterted by this gene should be investigated by novel genetic tools, such as CRISPR-CAS9, which will permit to target only the Y-linked paralogue, avoiding to interfere with the autosomal or X-linked paralogue function.

    Traditionally, probabilistic risk assessments (PRA) of severe accidents in nuclear power plants have considered initiating events potentially occurring only during full power operation. Some previous screening analyses that were performed for other modes of operation suggested that risks during those modes were small relative to full power operation. However, more recent studies and operational experience have implied that accidents during low power and shutdown could be significant contributors to risk. Two plants, Surry (pressurized water reactor) and Grand Gulf (boiling water reactor), were selected as the plants to be studied. The objectives of the program are to assess the risks of severe accidents initiated during plant operational states other than full power operation and to compare the estimated core damage frequencies, important accident sequences and other qualitative and quantitative results with those accidents initiated during full power operation as assessed in NUREG-1150. The scope of the program includes that of a level-3 PRA. In phase 2, mid-loop operation was selected as the plant configuration to be analyzed based on the results of the phase 1 study. The objective of the phase 2 study is to perform a detailed analysis of the potential accident scenarios that may occur during mid-loop operation, and compare the results with those of NUREG-1150. The scope of the level-1 study includes plant damage state analysis, and uncertainty analysis. Volume 1 summarizes the results of the study. Internal events analysis is documented in Volume 2. It also contains an appendix that documents the part of the phase 1 study that has to do with POSs other than mid-loop operation. Internal fire and internal flood analyses are documented in Volumes 3 and 4. A separate study on seismic analysis, documented in Volume 5, was performed for the NRC by Future Resources Associates, Inc. Volume 6 documents the accident progression, source terms, and consequence analysis.

    Full Text Available The phenomenon of the special relationship in BritishAmerican politics of the second part of the XX century also received intensive development in the early XXI century. In fact, according to conditions of modern processes of globalization, cooperation between the United States and Great Britain, as within framework of NATO and in other international organizations, became increasingly close. Both States played a significant role in the international policy, working on various issues of economy, politics, environment, culture, etc. Attention is drawn to the forms of cooperation between the studied States in the implementation of military initiatives in the Balkans (1998 and Iraq (2003. These events allowed characterizing the first and final stages of the development of relations between the United States and Britain in the form of «special» in the period of late XX – early XXI centuries. In the beginning of XXI century the cooperation between the U.S. and the UK in reforming NATO, taking into account national foreign policy strategy of the USA, was an example of favorable development of bilateral “special relationship”.

Si bien hay muchas maneras de caracterizar las universidades públicas en el continente, nos parece que desde el punto de vista histórico las instituciones de educación superior públicas se distinguen de las mismas instituciones en otros continentes por una relación especial entre las universidades y la política. Expresión de ello son los constantes movimientos estudiantiles durante el siglo y por supuesto el anhelo y la concesión de la autonomía universitaria a partir de 1918 en Córdoba, Argentina hasta los años recientes. En este trabajo nos acercamos a la historia de estas dos características de las universidades latinoamericanas en el siglo XX.

    We report a case of discordant phenotypic sex in monozygotic twins mosaic 47,XXY/46,XX: monozygotic heterokaryotypic twins. The twins presented with cognitive and comprehension delay, behavioural and language disorders, all symptoms frequently reported in Klinefelter syndrome. Molecular zygosity analysis with several markers confirmed that the twins are in effect monozygotic (MZ). Array comparative genomic hybridization found no evidence for the implication of copy number variation in the phenotypes. Ultrasound scans of the reproductive organs revealed no abnormalities. Endocrine tests showed a low testosterone level in Twin 1 (male phenotype) and a low gonadotrophin level in Twin 2 (female phenotype) which, combined with the results from ultrasound examination, provided useful information for potentially predicting the future fertility potential of the twins. Blood karyotypes revealed the presence of a normal 46,XX cell line and an aneuploïd 47,XXY cell line in both patients. Examination of the chromosome constitutions of various tissues such as blood, buccal smear and urinary sediment not surprisingly showed different proportions for the 46,XX and 47,XXY cell lines, which most likely explains the discordant phenotypic sex and mild Klinefelter features. The most plausible underlying biological mechanism is a post-zygotic loss of the Y chromosome in an initially 47,XXY zygote. This would result in an embryo with both 46,XX and 47,XXY cells lines which could subsequently divide into two monozygotic embryos through a twinning process. The two cell lines would then be distributed differently between tissues which could result in phenotypic discordances in the twins. These observations emphasize the importance of regular paediatric evaluations to determine the optimal timing for fertility preservation measures and to detect new Klinefelter features which could appear throughout childhood in the two subjects.

    Full Text Available This paper describes the growth of Kolaka city in Bone in XX century. In early XX century, Kolaka became the capital of onderafdeeling Kolaka since 1911. In 1912 indirectly the influence of this policy was the development and repair of city facilities in the form of port medium, warehouse, office of toll and duty, and road network in Kolaka. Those settlement growths in Kolaka affected the economic activity and commerce. The settlement and physical region got much better especially after Dutch government settled the resident settlement with the settlement model following the centripetal roadway pattern with the village (kampung pattern (o’kambo. The resident settlement pattern also followed the coastline of Mekongga and Bone Bay. Exploiting the nickel mine yielded the urban symptom in the center of area of nickel mining.

  8. [New aspects of diagnosing and treating pure gonadal dysgenesis 46XY and 46XX].

    Baron, J; Warenik-Szymankiewicz, A; Miedzianowski, J; Baron, J J

    1993-01-01

    Among 67 women with pure gonadal dysgenesis, karyotype 46XY was found in 46 and karyotype 46XX in 21 (26.3% of all intersexual subjects). Karyotype 46XY was either of pure type or mosaicism 45,X/46,XY (10.9%). Primary amenorrhea, underdevelopment of mammary glands and lack or poor development of pubic hair were the main complaints of the patients. In gonadal dysgenesis 46XY mammary glands were developed in 21.8% and pubic hair in 26% suggesting the presence within the gonads of the hormonally active tumor or the state after hormonal treatment. The patients with gonadal dysgenesis 46XX had lowered levels of estrogens and elevated levels of FSH and LH. Karyotype 46XY was not associated with evident changes in hormonal levels. Estrogens were both low and normal, and FSH was elevated (21.5 + 16.6 ug/ml) or normal (3.2-5.0 ng/ml). Total testosterone values were normal or slightly elevated. Such situation can be explained by the presence in some patients of tumors secreting either estrogens or androgens. Taeniform character of gonads was observed by ultrasonography whenever the presence of gonadal tumor was excluded. Histology of specimens taken from gonads or tumors demonstrated the presence of dysgerminoma or gonadoblastoma type of malignancy in 53.1%, foci or proliferation of the Leydig cells in 31.3% and typical morphology of residual gonads without germinal cells only in 12.5%. The differentiation between pure gonadal dysgenesis 46XX and primary ovarian insufficiency is required whenever no characteristic pattern emerges from clinical, hormonal, cytogenetic or ultrasonographic examination. Diagnosis of pure gonadal dysgenesis 46XX can be finally confirmed by the absence of gonocytes in the residual gonad. Besides of removal of gonads or tumors by surgery, the treatment of patients with 46XY karyotype consists in cyclic administration of estrogens and progestagens restoring menstruation and bringing development of secondary sex attributes.

    The aim of the study was to examine the association between the ACTN3 R577X polymorphism in canoe sprint athletes (canoe and kayak paddlers) and their results at 200- or 1000-m distance. Eighty-six European white male athletes divided into 2 groups-successful, who were outstanding at national championships, and nonsuccessful in these competitions-and 354 nonathletic controls were included in this study. The R577X polymorphism of ACTN3 was typed using PCR-RFLP. ACTN3 genotype distribution among all tested athletes and controls was in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. The odds ratio (OR) for successful 1000-m athletes harboring the XX genotype compared with sedentary controls was 2.95 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.37-6.35), but the OR for nonsuccessful 200-m athletes having the XX genotype compared with controls was 2.64 (95% CI: 1.30-5.36). These results suggest that factors associated with the ACTN3 XX genotype in canoe and kayak paddlers might provide some competitive advantage in performance at 1000 m, but it seems to limit at 200 m. Further studies aimed at development of training strategies based on genetic factors are needed.

  10. DebrisInterMixing-2.3: a finite volume solver for three-dimensional debris-flow simulations with two calibration parameters - Part 1: Model description

    von Boetticher, Albrecht; Turowski, Jens M.; McArdell, Brian W.; Rickenmann, Dieter; Kirchner, James W.

    2016-08-01

    Here, we present a three-dimensional fluid dynamic solver that simulates debris flows as a mixture of two fluids (a Coulomb viscoplastic model of the gravel mixed with a Herschel-Bulkley representation of the fine material suspension) in combination with an additional unmixed phase representing the air and the free surface. We link all rheological parameters to the material composition, i.e., to water content, clay content, and mineral composition, content of sand and gravel, and the gravel's friction angle; the user must specify only two free model parameters. The volume-of-fluid (VoF) approach is used to combine the mixed phase and the air phase into a single cell-averaged Navier-Stokes equation for incompressible flow, based on code adapted from standard solvers of the open-source CFD software OpenFOAM. This effectively single-phase mixture VoF method saves computational costs compared to the more sophisticated drag-force-based multiphase models. Thus, complex three-dimensional flow structures can be simulated while accounting for the pressure- and shear-rate-dependent rheology.

  11. Expression of selected genes escaping from X inactivation in the 41, XX(Y)* mouse model for Klinefelter's syndrome.

    2011-06-01

    We hypothesized that patients with Klinefelter's syndrome (KS) not only undergo X inactivation, but also that genes escape from inactivation. Their transcripts would constitute a significant difference, as male metabolism is not adapted to a 'female-like' gene dosage. We evaluated the expression of selected X-linked genes in our 41, XX(Y)* male mice to determine whether these genes escape inactivation and whether tissue-specific differences occur. Correct X inactivation was identified by Xist expression. Relative expression of X-linked genes was examined in liver, kidney and brain tissue by real-time PCR in adult XX(Y)* and XY* males and XX females. Expression of genes known to escape X inactivation was analysed. Relative mRNA levels of Pgk1 (control, X inactivated), and the genes Eif2s3x, Kdm5c, Ddx3x and Kdm6a escaping from X inactivation were quantified from liver, kidney and brain. Pgk1 mRNA expression showed no difference, confirming correct X inactivation. In kidney and liver, XX(Y)* males resembled the female expression pattern in all four candidate genes and were distinguishable from XY* males. Contrastingly, in brain tissue XX(Y)* males expressed all four genes higher than male and female controls. Altered expression of genes escaping X inactivation probably contributes directly to the XX(Y)* phenotype. © 2011 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica © 2011 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.

    Calvin, M.; Massini, Peter

    1952-09-01

    The separation of the phenomenon of photosynthesis in green plants into a photochemical reaction and into the light-dependent reduction of carbon dioxide is discussed, The reduction of carbon dioxide and the fate of the assimilated carbon were investigated with the help of the tracer technique (exposure of the planks to the radioactive C{sup 14}O{sub 2}) and of paper chromatography. A reaction cycle is proposed in which phosphoglyceric acid is the first isolable assimilations product. Analyses of the algal extracts which had assimilated radioactive carbon dioxide in a stationary condition ('steady-state' photosynthesis) for a long time provided further information concerning the proposed cycle and permitted the approximate estimation, for a number of compounds of what fraction of each compound was taking part in the cycle. The earlier supposition that light influences the respiration cycle was confirmed. The possibility of the assistance of {alpha}-lipoic acid, or of a related substance, in this influence and in the photosynthesis cycle, is discussed.

    Full Text Available O propósito deste artigo é analisar alguns aspectos das memórias de escolarização de pessoas que estudaram durante as três primeiras décadas do século XX. Concederam depoimentos dez homens e dez mulheres. Esses depoimentos foram analisados partindo da concepção de que o homem é um ser histórica e socialmente determinado, o que possibilitou uma contextualização das falas a partir de um referencial proveniente da história da educação, bem como análise das narrativas, decorrentes de um trabalho de rememoração, lidas a partir da perspectiva de Halbwachs. O desenvolvimento do texto está centrado principalmente em dois aspectos dos depoimentos: as dificuldades encontradas pelos sujeitos para permanecerem na escola e as comparações entre o passado e o presente. Os depoimentos mostram tanto o que há de particular nas memórias arroladas, quanto o que elas trazem de um momento histórico, permitindo que se vislumbre parte do que permaneceu do cotidiano escolar para essas pessoas.

    Full Text Available En este artículo se estudió la recepción de los inmigrantes con tracoma en el puerto de Buenos Aires entre 1908 y 1943, con base en las relaciones entre los discursos de los médicos y las prácticas concretas de rechazo. Analizamos las teorías de los tracomatólogos argentinos y de otras partes del mundo, para luego confrontarlas con la construcción de las categorías presentes en las estadísticas de la Dirección General de Migración durante la primera mitad del siglo XX y con las representaciones de las distintas nacionalidades de los granulosos rechazados. El estudio de los vínculos entre los discursos y las prácticas revela una sobrerrepresentación y una estigmatización de los inmigrantes sirios, al mismo tiempo que la construcción de un mito alrededor de los inmigrantes judíos, rusos, húngaros y egipcios, entre otros. Dicho imaginario está arraigado tanto en el nacionalismo como en los intercambios internacionales de los tracomatólogos sobre la etiología, la historia, la epidemiología del tracoma, y sobre los modos legales y prácticos de selección de los inmigrantes considerados deseables.

    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 Triploidy is common in human pregnancies. It is detected in 1 to 2% of clinically recognized pregnancies and in approximately 15 to 20% of spontaneous abortions produced by chromosome anomalies. We report a premature liveborn girl (30 weeks of gestation with microcephaly, facial dysmorphism and skeletal abnormalities who died at one day of age due to respiratory failure. The placenta showed partial hydatiform mole. Autopsy revealed no internal malformations. Cytogenetic analysis of 100 metaphases obtained from renal tissue culture revealed a 68,XX[73]/69,XXX[27] karyotype. To our knowledge this is the first report in the literature of 68,XX[73]/69,XXX[27] mosaicism in a liveborn infant.A triploidia é uma anomalia cromossômica comum encontrada em 1 a 2% das gestações clinicamente reconhecidas e em cerca de 15 a 20% dos abortos espontâneos de causa cromossômica. Em aproximadamente 5% dos casos, uma aneuploidia pode estar também associada (Boué et al., 1985. Descrevemos um recém-nascido do sexo feminino, prematuro (30 semanas de idade gestacional, com microcefalia, dismorfias faciais e alterações de membros, que foi a óbito com 1 dia de vida por insuficiência respiratória. O exame anátomo-patológico da placenta revelou alterações compatíveis com degeneração molar. A necrópsia da criança não evidenciou malformações internas. A análise citogenética de 100 metáfases, obtidas a partir de cultura de tecido renal, evidenciou cariótipo 68,XX[73]/69,XXX[27]. Apenas 9 casos de triploidia 68,XX foram descritos anteriormente, sendo 7 em abortos, 1 em feto de 21 semanas e 1 em recém-nascido a termo. Consideramos que este estudo seja o primeiro da literatura relatando a ocorrência de mosaicismo 69,XXX/68,XX em um recém-nascido vivo.

  18. ICPEAC XX: A Retro- and Pro-Spective Analysis

    1997-12-31

    There is something magical about ``round birthdays.`` They make one stop and think about where he is, how he got there, and where he is going. The same is apparently true of conferences, especially those like ICPEAC which represent the periodic coming together of a broad range of scientists in a reasonably well-defined discipline. This Vienna conference is the 20th in the ICPEAC series, and a retro- and pro-spective analysis seems appropriate. At the first ICPEAC in New York (1958), there were about 50 participants. In Vienna (1997), there were more than 800 participants. How do we account for this growth? ICPEAC is one of the most democratic conferences of its size. For example, input from a general committee of 50 representing the many geographic and sub- disciplinary areas gives continuous refreshment of ideas for the invited program. And, as in any democracy, there is a constant state of turmoil and self doubt. After all, atomic collisions is a ``mature`` field, and was a ``mature`` field at the time of the first ICPEAC in 1958, 50 what can one expect in new developments? This self doubt is best expressed in the comment of Ben Bederson (the ``Father of ICPEAC``) following the second in Boulder, Colorado, in 1961: ``This conference is the second in a series of informal meetings organized by a group of workers in the general field of electronic and atomic collisions. The first such meeting was held at New York University in 1958, and we will probably continue to meet at irregular intervals in the future....`` As part of my ``keynote`` talk at the New York ICPEAC XVI in 1989, I gave a brief history of the conference which we can build on to round things off for our twentieth.

    Documentation of the preliminary software developed as a framework for a generalized integrated robotic system simulation is presented. The program structure is composed of three major functions controlled by a program executive. The three major functions are: system definition, analysis tools, and post processing. The system definition function handles user input of system parameters and definition of the manipulator configuration. The analysis tools function handles the computational requirements of the program. The post processing function allows for more detailed study of the results of analysis tool function executions. Also documented is the manipulator joint model software to be used as the basis of the manipulator simulation which will be part of the analysis tools capability.

    The purpose of the study was to determine the distribution and abundance of cetaceans in areas potentially affected by future oil and gas activities along the continental slope of the north-central and western Gulf of Mexico. This 3.75 year project commenced 1 October 1991 and finished 15 July 1995. The study area was bounded by the Florida-Alabama border, the Texas-Mexico border, and the 100 m and 2,000 m isobaths. Cetacean distribution and abundance were determined from seasonal aerial and shipboard visual surveys and shipboard acoustic surveys. In addition, hydrographic data were collected in situ and by satellite remote sensing to characterize cetacean habitat. Finally, tagging and tracking of sperm whales using satellite telemetry was attempted. Appendix C Part 2 contains the hydrogrpahic data collected during TIO Cruises 5-7. Cetaceans were observed throughout the study area during all four seasons. Nineteen species were identified, including two species (melon-headed whales and Fraser`s dolphins) previously thought to be rare in the Gulf. Pantropical spotted dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, clymene dolphins, striped dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins, and melon-headed whales were the most common small cetaceans and the sperm whale was the most common large cetacean. The mean annual abundance for all cetaceans was estimated to be 19,198. Although the study area had complex and dynamic oceanography, bottom depth was the only environmental variable which correlated to cetacean distribution.

The “anamnesis” practiced on the monument is one of the cornerstones of the method we have chosen for restoration, not only regarding the structural aspects, but regarding the problems of functional interpretation and symbolic content as well. This historical reading the key of structural analysis is what we intend to present: the extraction of the historical building sequence that leads to the current situation of the building, discriminating the different moments of the architectural project, phases of building growth and repair interventions on the structure that comment on or contradict among themselves, to result in the form that we witness now. We use that sequence to evaluate, albeit partially, the safety status of the structure, and to build a working hypothesis for the structural aspects of the restoration tasks.La Catedral de Vitoria es un edificio con una larga vida histórica, llena de acontecimientos constructivos que han venido interesando su comportamiento como estructura construida. Ha sido un objetivo primordial del Plan Director evaluar las sucesivas consecuencias de todos esos acontecimientos y explicar su concatenación. Todo ello se ha investigado durante su redacción, consiguiendo una secuencia cronológica en la que se relaciona el conjunto de intervenciones y de "proyectos" arquitectónicos que se suceden desde el comienzo de la construcción de la iglesia en los inicios del siglo XIII hasta sus últimas restauraciones en los años 60 del siglo XX.

  9. Mosaic double aneuploidy (45,X/47,XX,+8) with aortic dissection.

    Chromosomal aneuploidy is considerably frequent and may involve either autosomes or sex chromosomes. While double aneuploidy involving both autosomal and sex chromosomes is rare, several reports described the cases of sex chromosomal aneuploidies in combination with trisomy 21, such as Down-Klinefelter and Down-Turner syndrome. However, trisomy 8-Turner syndrome has been rarely described to date. Here we report a case of a 28-year-old female with mosaic trisomy 8-Turner syndrome. The patient was referred to our hospital for aortic dissection. On physical evaluation, features of her phenotype, which included short stature, webbed neck and cubitus valgus, suggested congenital anomalies such as Turner syndrome. Chest CT revealed aortic dissection with bicuspid aortic valve and coarctation. G-banding cytogenetic analysis of peripheral blood showed mosaicism with two cell lines (45,X[17]/47,XX,+8[33]). FISH analysis indicated that 15% of the cells were of monosomy X karyotype and 85% of the cells were with XX karyotype and trisomy 8 was detected only in XX cells. Though the patient exhibited clinical features of Turner syndrome, somatic stigmas present were not clearly distinguishable from those of trisomy 8, such as short stature, skeletal and cardiac abnormalities. Observations from most of the double aneuploidy cases indicated that the patient's phenotype was not necessarily in correlation to the ratio of autosomal and sex chromosomal aberrations. Mosaicism in trisomy 8-Turner syndrome was rarely documented and we believe this is the first reported case of mosaicism in trisomy 8-Turner syndrome presenting with aortic dissection and surviving into adulthood.

    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.

    We studied the trace distance, the Hellinger distance, and the Bures distance geometric quantum discords (GQDs) for a two-spin Heisenberg XX chain with the Dzyaloshinsky–Moriya (DM) interaction and the external magnetic fields. We found that considerable enhancement of the GQDs can be achieved by introducing the DM interaction, and their maxima were obtained when the strength of the DM interaction approaches infinity. The external magnetic fields and the increase of the temperature can also enhance the GQDs to some extent during certain specific parameter regions.

    Full Text Available The growth of the population puneña during century XX is from the evolution of three central circumstances. First, it consists of which the society puneña, specially the rural one, has been, and largely it is it, ";a traditional"; society, that is to say, nonmodern, preindustrial, with social structure little differentiated, cultural guidelines differentials. The other is related to the process of joint between that traditional society and modern, the capitalist one, extra-puneña. The conjecture is that the consolidation of Capitalism in the Argentine Northwest from the last third of century XIX did not move nor replaced the traditional society: it coexisted with her during decades generating substantial changes in numerous aspects. Third it has to do with the action of the State: during the first decades of the XX it operated at least in the context of the positivismo, associated with the concept of development - nondistant to the one of progress. Through the progress, the traditional society transforms itself into a rational, secular society, with differentiated social structures.El crecimiento de la población puneña durante el siglo XX resulta de la evolución de tres circunstancias centrales. La primera consiste en que la sociedad puneña, especialmente la rural, ha sido, y en buena medida lo es, una sociedad "tradicional", es decir, no moderna, preindustrial, con estructura social poco diferenciada, con pautas culturales diferenciales. La otra se relaciona con el proceso de articulación entre esa sociedad tradicional y la moderna, capitalista, extra-puneña. La conjetura es que la consolidación del capitalismo en el Noroeste argentino a partir del último tercio del siglo XIX no desplazó ni reemplazó a la sociedad tradicional: convivió con ella durante décadas generando cambios sustanciales en numerosos aspectos. La tercera tiene que ver con la acción del Estado: al menos durante las primeras décadas del XX operó en el

    Many statistics are based on functions of sample moments. Important examples are the sample variance $s_{n-1}^2$, the sample coefficient of variation SV(n), the sample dispersion SD(n) and the non-central $t$-statistic $t(n)$. The definition of these quantities makes clear that the vector defined by (\\sum_{i=1}^nX_i,\\sum_{i=1}^nX_i^2) plays an important role. In studying the asymptotic behaviour of this vector we start by formulating best possible conditions under which the vector $(X,X^2)$ b...

    Six 46,XX patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) presented with genital ambiguity, five so severe that initial gender assignment was male. Once diagnosis was realized, parents were involved in evaluation and chose sex re-assignment as female. To date, these girls and their parents all indicate satisfaction with their decision for a female sex of rearing. The girls have a female gender identity with behavior characteristics known for females with CAH. Thus, while outcome is satisfactory, it is realized that for most, expression of sexual orientation and adult life adjustments have not yet occurred.

    An entangled quantum refrigerator working with a three-qubit one-dimensional isotropic Heisenberg XX model in a constant external magnetic field is constructed in this paper. Based on the quantum first law of thermodynamics, the expressions for several basic thermodynamic quantities such as the heat transferred, the net work and the coefficient of performance are derived. Moreover, the influence of the thermal entanglement on the basic thermodynamic quantities is investigated. Several interesting features of the variation of the basic thermodynamic quantities with the thermal entanglement in zero and nonzero magnetic field are obtained.

    Full Text Available The article considers the question of forms of wages paid to workers in the mining industry of Siberia in the late XIX – early XX centuries. Of the two main forms of labor compensation – hourly rate and piecework pay, the latter was more corresponding to the spirit of capitalism, and it was most widespread in the mining enterprises of Siberia. The piecework pay was also the main instrument for intensifying labor productivity. This episode in the history of labor is studied on the basis of paperwork materials of mining companies and reporting documents of the mining inspectorate.

  1. La persistencia del surrealismo en la arquitectura religiosa española del siglo XX

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Esteban Fernández Cobián

    2011-07-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo trata de averiguar si el surrealismo —no entendido tanto como estilo artístico, sino como manera compleja de entender la vida— puede postularse como hilo conductor de la arquitectura religiosa del siglo XX en España. Aunque es posible leer la arquitectura católica moderna como un intento de integrar el dogma con las aspiraciones del llamado espíritu de los tiempos, la pérdida de peso que supuso este planteamiento para la arquitectura todavía no se ha esclarecido lo suficiente. La pervivencia de las tradiciones, el diálogo entre la teología y el arte o la crisis de identidad católica tras el Concilio Vaticano II son facetas del intenso —y a veces obsesivo— debate que se desarrolló en España durante el siglo XX. A la postre, se constata que la perenne vena surrealista que subyace en todo lo español impregna también la arquitectura sacra y dificulta su correcta lectura. Se evidencia, finalmente, que la arquitectura religiosa es susceptible de miradas transversales sobre el hecho construido y que abre el campo a nuevas interpretaciones.

    Full Text Available Ukrainian public communities have important achievements in development of the system of continuous agricultural education in Precarpathia - Ukrainian Pedagogical Society “Ridna Shkola”, “Prosvita”, “Silskyi Hospodar”, the Union of Ukrainians and others. In the late XIX - early XX centuries, they held important educational work among adults, organized various forms of training - courses, professional-complementary schools, agricultural schools, high schools, colleges, courses, public universities etc. All this contributed to increasing of economic culture of the Ukrainian land. Formation of economic culture of children and adults in Precarpathia had its own characteristics, mainly associated with the economic, social, historical, climatic, cultural and educational conditions of life and activities. The system of continuous agricultural education included some educational institutions such as courses, vocational schools, which performed various levels of training. Agricultural schools became an important area of lifelong education. Let us consider, for example, the activities of two schools - one of the first established societies “Enlightenment” in the Precarpathia - schools in Mylovanya (Tlumachchyna and Starokosivska, which was founded in 1942 during the German occupation. Thus, on condition of the absence of state Ukrainian professional schools in the late XIX - early XX centuries civil societies created a system of continuous agricultural education which was aimed at improving the economic culture of young people and adults.

  4. Evolution of Dosage Compensation in Anolis carolinensis, a Reptile with XX/XY Chromosomal Sex Determination

    2017-01-01

    In species with highly heteromorphic sex chromosomes, the degradation of one of the sex chromosomes will result in unequal gene expression between the sexes (e.g. between XX females and XY males) and between the sex chromosomes and the autosomes. Dosage compensation is a process whereby genes on the sex chromosomes achieve equal gene expression. We compared genome-wide levels of transcription between males and females, and between the X chromosome and the autosomes in the green anole, Anolis carolinensis. We present evidence for dosage compensation between the sexes, and between the sex chromosomes and the autosomes. When dividing the X chromosome into regions based on linkage groups, we discovered that genes in the first reported X-linked region, anole linkage group b (LGb), exhibit complete dosage compensation, although the rest of the X-linked genes exhibit incomplete dosage compensation. Our data further suggest that the mechanism of this dosage compensation is upregulation of the X chromosome in males. We report that approximately 10% of coding genes, most of which are on the autosomes, are differentially expressed between males and females. In addition, genes on the X chromosome exhibited higher ratios of nonsynonymous to synonymous substitution than autosomal genes, consistent with the fast-X effect. Our results from the green anole add an additional observation of dosage compensation in a species with XX/XY sex determination. PMID:28206607

    Full Text Available The article deals with the issues of censorship and printing in the Caucasus at the end of XIX – early XX centuries. The special attention is given to censorship during the First Russian revolution (1905-1907 years. Among the materials are the archival documents from the national archives of Georgia, as well as materials of pre-revolutionary periodicals and legislation dedicated to this issue. The scientific publications are important too. The authors come to the conclusion that in the late of XIX – early XX centuries in the Caucasus, as in the whole of the territory of the Russian Empire, there was a sharp rise of printing and publishing periodicals – magazines. With the growth of revolutionary events there was a need in the institute of censorship to control over the printed word. Especially the role of this institution was high during the First Russian revolution. Despite the small number of states and different problems, the censorship has contributed to the stabilization of the political and crime situation in the territory of the Caucasian viceroyalty.

    Full Text Available Over the centuries in Mexico, such as in many other countries, the traditional role of women has been that of being a housewife and a mother; therefore, they had no access to education. Young women from rich families studied art and music, mostly as entertainment. Music wasn’t considered a profession, there were no music schools, and some academies or private teachers filled that void. In this context, a particular merit is made for those women who took the decision to participate in the social, cultural and political life of the society they belonged to. Their contribution to education, spreading of the musical arts, and specially pianism in the northeast region hasn’t been appreciated enough, despite the great effort, enthusiasm and devotion they demonstrated. This article takes an approach on the role of women within the piano studies during the XX century in the northeast of Mexico from the following questions: Who were the women who made the educational work in the musical and pianistic field in the northeast of Mexico during the XX century? Who were the women who made piano their profession and turned out of a great importance for the dissemination of piano arts and the pianistic repertoire in the region of reference?

    Full Text Available Los ejércitos de Seti y de Ramses II que lucharon contra los hititas estaban en posesión de la mayoría de las armas más modernas de su época. Las tropas egipcias dependían de los carros y de la infantería que esencialmente luchaba con hachas, espadas cortas, espadas de hoz, jabalinas, mazas, venablos, hondas y se defendían con escudos. El uso de cascos, cotas de placas de bronce se extendió con rapidez y los mercenarios shardana introdujeron las espadas largas. Con la crisis política a finales de la dinastía XIX, y la pérdida de territorios a inicios de la dinastía del XX, el ejército perdió también parte de sus recursos y los artesanos asiáticos especializados en la metalurgia.The army of Seti I and Ramses II, which fought against the hittites, possessed the most modem weapons of that era. The Egyptian troops depended upon chariots and infantry which essentially fought with axes, short swords, sickle swords, spears, javelins, lances, self and composite bows and who defended themselves with shields. The use of helmets and coats of mail became more and more widespread and the shardana mercenaries introduced long swords. With the political crisis at the end of the XIXth. Dynasty and the loss of territory at the beginning of the XXth. Dynasty, the army lost its arms resources, which come from Asian towns specialized in metallurgy.

    Full Text Available The construction of symbolic regards and itineraries referring on the “Nation” in Argentina begins in the years following the emancipation of the Rio de la Plata in 1810. The eyes of foreign and argentines artists will focus on the nineteenth century on representations of the Pampa, the indigenous and gaucho as symbols of identity, forming an imaginary that is updated in different contexts and using differents art languages in 19th and 20th century. Cosmopolitism and nationalism are two lines through which transmitted the positions, debates and visions on the Argentine identity, forging an hegemonic imaginary focused on what was produced and enshrined in Buenos Aires, with little or no participation from regional productions.La necesidad de construir referentes e itinerarios simbólicos sobre la “Nación” en la Argentina comienza en los años que siguieron a la emancipación del Río de la Plata en 1810. La mirada de artistas extranjeros y argentinos se centrará en gran parte del siglo XIX en representaciones de la Pampa, el indígena y el gaucho como símbolos identitarios, constituyendo un imaginario que se reactualizará en distintos contextos y acudiendo a diferentes lenguajes a lo largo de los siglos XIX y XX. Cosmopolitismo y nacionalismo se constituyen en dos ejes por donde transitarán las posturas, debates y visiones sobre la identidad argentina, forjando un imaginario hegemónico centrado en lo producido y consagrado en Buenos Aires, con poca o ninguna participación de producciones o referentes regionales.

Paulo em 1910, e da censura à imprensa, através de um Relatório de Justiça, por esta divulgar casos de suicídios no estilo de fait divers, na passagem do século XIX para o XX. Partimos da hipótese de que a postura do relator fazia parte de uma extensa ação disciplinadora de controle da cidade, à qual a imprensa não escapava. Tal ação disciplinadora estava pautada pelas teorias racistas e deterministas de matriz européia e articulava diversas instâncias do poder. Aplicadas de modo particular ao contexto brasileiro em razão do passado escravista, a tentativa de ordenamento da cidade agrega o racismo de cor ao de classe, redimensionado no novo contexto republicano.This article is about representations of the city of São Paulo made by the periodical O Estado de S. Paulo in 1910 and analyses a case of censorship towards the media, through a Report of Justice, related to the divulgation of fait divers style suicide cases in the period of transition between the 19th and the 20th centuries. We start from the following hypothesis: the position of the author of the Report was influenced by an extensive disciplinary action set up to control the city and that targeted also the media. Such disciplinary action was based on racist and determinist theories, of european matrix, and articulated various levels of power. Applied to this particular Brazilian context due to its legacy of slavery, the attempt to put order in the city joins the racism to social exclusion, adapted to the New Republican era.

    Purpose: The quality assurance (QA) procedure has to check the most relevant beam parameters to ensure the delivery of the correct dose to patients. Film dosimetry, which is commonly used for scanned ion beam QA, does not provide immediate results. The purpose of this work is to answer whether, for scanned ion beam therapy, film dosimetry can be replaced with the 2D MatriXX detector as a real-time tool. Methods: MatriXX, equipped with 32×32 parallel plate ion-chambers, is a commercial device intended for pre-treatment verification of conventional radiation therapy.The MatriXX, placed at the isocenter, and GAFCHROMIC films, positioned on the MatriXX entrance, were exposed to 131.44 MeV proton and 221.45 MeV/u Carbon-ion beams.The OmniPro-I’mRT software, applied for the data taking of MatriXX, gives the possibility of acquiring consecutive snapshots. Using the NI LabVIEW, the data from snapshots were logged as text files for further analysis. Radiochromic films were scanned with EPSON scanner and analyzed using software programs developed in-house for comparative purposes. Results: The field dose uniformity, flatness, beam position and beam width were investigated. The field flatness for the region covering 6×6 cm{sup 2} square field was found to be better than 2%. The relative standard deviations, expected to be constant over 2×2, 4×4 and 6×6 pixels from MatriXX measurement gives a uniformity of 1.5% in good agreement with the film results.The beam center position is determined with a resolution better than 200 µm for Carbon and less than 100 µm for proton beam.The FWHM determination for a beam wider than 10 mm is satisfactory, whilst for smaller beams the determination is uncertain. Conclusion: Precise beam position and fast 2D dose distribution can be determined in real-time using MatriXX detector. The results show that MatriXX is quick and accurate enough to be used in charged-particle therapy QA.

    Full Text Available The article focuses on the ideological and political preconditions of the major violence perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire in the last third XIX – early XX century till the destruction of the whole nation, particularly, the Armenians. The article is devoted to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire in 1915. The article highlights the essence of the Ottomanism, panTurkism and pan-Islamism doctrines and analyzes the policies of the Ottoman government aimed at merging all people of the empire into one “new nation” consisting of “homogeneous elements” loyal to Ottoman Empire regardless of the ethnicity and religious beliefs ("Ottomanism". The concept of Ottomanism was oriented against the Christian peoples’ national liberation movement and it was intensively inculcated during the tyranny rule by sultan Abdul Hamid II. The Sultan government has also adopted an Islamic reactionary ideological and political doctrine, strongly promoting and encouraging pan-Islamists activity. It is emphasized that the empire continued to be a cockpit of non-Turkish peoples for their liberation and Abdul Hamid II with his inner circle are responsible for the organization in 1894– 1896 of terrible massacres of Armenians that astounded the world. The victorious Russian-Turkish war (1877–1878 was an indirect cause of those dramatic events. Armenian issue as a part of the Eastern Question was a subsidiary coin in the geopolitics of Great Powers. The break-up of Ottomanism and pan-Islamism ideas in the early XX century inaugurated the epoch of a new doctrine – panTurkism (the union of all Turkic peoples under the aegis of Turkey, which was put in the forefront as the Turkish national ideology by the government of the Young Turks.

  16. Thermochemistry of organic, elementorganic and inorganic species. Part XX. Enthalpies of formation for free radicals of main group elements’ halogenides

    General trends in thermochemistry for free radicals as the fragments of halogenated molecules of main group elements were found for the first time applying the series of isodesmic (working) reactions following the Benson's comparison of relative stabilities of free radicals in equations R+RH→ RH+R+Q, where Q is stabilization (destabilization) energy. The enthalpies of formation for parent molecules of main group elements' halogenides necessary for application of this and similar equations were presented earlier [A.V. Golovin, V.V. Takhistov, J. Mol. Struct., 784 (2006) 47.]. For fluorinated free radicals rad EF (E = Be-Ra), rad EF 2 ( rad EHF) (E = B-Tl, N-Bi) and rad EF 3 ( rad EH 2F, rad EHF 2) (E = C-Pb) the gradual decrease in stabilization by fluorine atoms was found when coming down the periodic table. This turned to destabilization for Tl, Sb, and Bi, and IVth group of elements (excluding carbon) with increasing destabilization in the row Si Cl > Br > I which was interpreted by involvement of polarizability (PAZ) effect of halogens increasing in this direction. For finding the enthalpies of formation for silicon and germanium-centered free radicals the data on ν ≡ E-H frequencies in IR-spectra were applied. Quite definite tendencies in structure/enthalpy of formation interrelationship were found for chlorinated, brominated and iodinated free radicals of IInd and IIIrd group of elements. In the VIth group the situation with F → Cl → Br → I replacement in stabilization of free radical center appeared completely different compared with II-IV groups. Owing to the high electronegativity of HO-group and low thermodynamic stability of HO rad radical all halogens highly stabilize rad OX radical and perform it in the row F < Cl-Br < I which is explained by increase of PAZ effect in this direction. All halogens are suggested to stabilize other rad EX free radicals (E = S-Po) but essentially less compared with rad OX free radicals. The tendencies in stabilization/destabilization for Vth group free radicals appeared to be intermediate between those for IVth and VIth groups.

    Testes are determined by the activity of the SRY gene product encoded by the Y chromosome. Mutations in SRY can lead to XY sex reversal (XY females) and the presence of the SRY gene in some XX individuals can lead either to complete (XX males) or incomplete (XX true hermaphrodites) sex reversal. Approximately 10% of XX true hermaphrodites contain a portion of the Y chromosome, including SRY, in their genome. The etiology of the remaining cases is unestablished but may be caused by mutations in other as yet unidentied sex determining genes downstream of SRY. Here we describe an SRY-negative true hermaphrodite with a 46,X,del(X)(p21.1-pter). The patient also presented with severe mental retardation, abnormal skin pigmentation and below average height. Histological examination of the gonad revealed bilateral ovotestis. We postulate that the Xp deletion has unmasked a recessive allele on the apparently normal X chromosome generating the intersex phenotype. This observation together with recent findings of certain XY females carrying duplications of Xp21.3 suggests that there may be a loci on Xp which acts as a switch in the testis/ovarian determination pathways.

    Full Text Available Ovotesticular disorder of sex development (OT-DSD is a rare disorder of sexual differentiation characterized by the presence of both ovarian and testicular tissues in the same individual. It's incidence ranges from 3% to 10% of all disorder of DSD's, and the most common presentation is 46, XX followed by 46, XX/46, XY mosaicism and 46, XY. Klinefelter syndrome (KS mosaicism 46, XX/47, XXY is extremely rare, and its association with the ovotesticular disorder is even rarer. We report an unusual case of 16-year-old with male habitus who presented with complains of cyclic hematuria. On examination, he had bilateral gynecomastia, unilateral left cryptorchidism, absent facial hair, sparse axillary hair growth, and pubic hair distribution of feminine type. The right testis was of normal size located normally in hemiscrotum and was confirmed by radio imaging. Ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a cystic area behind posterior half of urinary bladder. Chromosomal analysis revealed 46, XX/47, XXY mosaicism of female karyotype and KS. Histopathological report of this left side excised specimen confirmed the structures to be ovary, uterus, and fallopian tube, thus confirming our diagnosis of the lateral ovotesticular disorder. Meticulous workup combined interdisciplinary approach will lead to early diagnosis and resolve timely sex reassignment issues and also prevent consequences arising due to gonadal insufficiency.

    Quantum discord is a resource for quantum information processing tasks, and seeking flexible ways to control it is of practical significance. We investigate the trace distance, Bures distance, and Hellinger distance geometric quantum discords (GQDs) for thermal states of the Heisenberg XX chain with three-spin interactions. The results show that both the XZX + YZY and XZY - YZX types of three-spin interactions can be used to enhance evidently the GQDs for the boundary spins of the chain. The optimal strengths of three-spin interactions for which the maximum enhancement of the GQDs are achieved are strongly dependent on the GQD measures we adopted and the number of spins in the chain.

    A 33-year-old woman was hospitalized for examination of edematous laryngopharynx. She was acromegalic. A pituitary adenoma with elevated serum levels of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) was detected, indicating acromegaly caused by GH-secreting pituitary adenoma. Multiple pigmented nevi were also noted without overt short stature and cubitus valgus. Chromosome analysis revealed that she had contracted Turner syndrome with 47,XXX/45,X/46,XX mosaicism. Transsphenoidal resection of the tumor decreased serum GH and IGF-I levels, but the edema was not improved. Both premature ovarian failure and hypertension appeared after surgery. This case may indicate the important relationships between GH/IGF-I and Turner syndrome.

    Triploid mosaicism is a rare aneuploidy syndrome characterized by growth retardation, developmental delay, 3-4 syndactyly, microphthalmia, coloboma, cleft lip and/or palate, genitourinary anomalies, and facial or body asymmetry. In the present report, we describe a 3-month-old female presenting with failure to thrive, growth retardation, and developmental delay. A chromosomal microarray demonstrated monosomy X, but her atypical phenotype prompted further evaluation with a chromosome analysis, which demonstrated 45,X/68,XX mixoploidy. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a patient with this chromosome complement. Mosaicism in chromosomal aneuploidies is likely under-recognized and may obscure the clinical diagnosis. At a time when comparative genomic hybridization and genome sequencing are increasingly used as diagnostic tools, this report highlights the clinical utility of chromosome analysis when a molecular diagnosis is not consistent with the observed phenotype.

    The contact eclipsing binary system XX Leonis (P = 0.97 days, sp A8) has been analysed using the PHOEBE programme, based on the Wilson Devinney code. The BVRI light curves were obtained during spring 2006 using the 20-cm telescope and ST-7 CCD detector. The effective temperature of the primary component determined from the photometric analysis is T=(7889+/-61)K, the inclination of the orbit is i=(89.98+/-2.45)deg and the photometric mass ratio q=(0.41+/-0.01). Also the third body hypothesis was suggested, based on the period analysis using 57 minimum times and resulting the period of the third body p3= (52.96+/-0.01)yr, amplitude A=(0.057+/-0.029)d and eccentricity e=(0.79+/-0.08) which gives the minimum mass m3,min=(3.6+/-0.8)M_sun.

    Full Text Available Introduction. The association of gonadal dysgenesis and Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome is very rare and appears to be coincidental, independent of chromosomal anomalies. Case Report. We report the case of a 19-year-old woman who presented primary amenorrhea and impuberism. The endocrine study revealed hypergonadotrophic hypogonadism. The karyotype was normal, 46XX. No chromosome Y was detected at the FISH analysis. Internal genitalia could not be identified on the pelvic ultrasound and pelvic MRI. Laparoscopy was undertaken and revealed concomitant ovarian dysgenesis and Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome. There were no other morphological malformations. Conclusion. The pathogenesis of the association of gonadal dysgenesis and Mayer Rokitansky kuster hauser syndrome is still mysterious. The treatment is based essentially on hormone substitution therapy. The fertility prognosis is unfortunately compromised.

    2016-11-01

    Quantum discord is a resource for quantum information processing tasks, and seeking flexible ways to control it is of practical significance. We investigate the trace distance, Bures distance, and Hellinger distance geometric quantum discords (GQDs) for thermal states of the Heisenberg XX chain with three-spin interactions. The results show that both the XZX + YZY and XZY -YZX types of three-spin interactions can be used to enhance evidently the GQDs for the boundary spins of the chain. The optimal strengths of three-spin interactions for which the maximum enhancement of the GQDs are achieved are strongly dependent on the GQD measures we adopted and the number of spins in the chain.

    The XX0 Heisenberg model on a cyclic chain is considered. The representation of the Bethe wave functions via the Schur functions allows to apply the well-developed theory of the symmetric functions to the calculation of the thermal correlation functions. The determinantal expressions of the form-factors and of the thermal correlation functions are obtained. The q-binomial determinants enable the connection of the form-factors with the generating functions both of boxed plane partitions and of self-avoiding lattice paths. The asymptotical behavior of the thermal correlation functions is studied in the limit of low temperature provided that the characteristic parameters of the system are large enough.

    Full Text Available Background: In congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH with ambiguous genitalia, assigning gender of rearing can be complex, especially If genitalia is highly virilized. Apart from karyotype, prenatal androgen exposure, patient's gender orientation, sociocultural, and parental influences play a role. The aim of this study was to assess gender dysphoria and psychosocial issues in patients of CAH raised as males and females. Materials and Methods: This is a cross-sectional study that includes patients (old and new with CAH who were treated by us in the last 6 months. A semi-structured interview proforma was used to elicit history and psychosocial background of the patients. The clinical and biochemical details were noted. For psychological analysis, patients were screened for gender dysphoria using Parent Report Gender Identity Questionnaire for children <12 years and Gender Identity/Gender Dysphoria Questionnaire for Adolescents and Adults. Results: We analyzed 22 46 XX CAH patients among which, 3 were reared as males and 19 as females. Among the 19 patients reared as females, 17 patients showed no gender dysphoria. Two patients revealed gender dysphoria as indicated by their marginally low scores on the gender dysphoria assessment. However, in view of current literature and the age groups of the patients, behavior of the 6-year-old patient can be best understood as being tomboyish. Gender dysphoria in the 22-year-old can be explained by the dominance of psychosocial factors and not hormones alone. Among the three patients reared as males, two prepubertal were satisfied with their male gender identity. The third patient, aged 32 years, had gender dysphoria when reared as a male that resolved when gender was reassigned as female and feminizing surgery was done. Conclusion: Gender assignment in 46 XX CAH is guided by factors such as degree of virilization of genitalia, gender orientation, patient involvement, sociocultural, and parental influences.

Analyzing the texts of works on the researched topic were used comparative-historical, historical-biographical and structural methods.Results: Our study suggests that irony and parody in biographical and memorialistic genres of XX century have integrated, multifunctional meaning. Analysis of the novels allows us to observe the transformation of traditional biographical memorialistic narration into the grotesque model of the reality. There are interesting observations of the functioning in the works such approaches as parody, travesty, illogic, allegory, etc. As a result of the use of similar artistic techniques the novels become metatext about human nature in generalPractical implications: The results of our research can be used for lectures on the history of Russian literature of XXth century, in the course "History of Russian Literature" at faculties and departments of Russian Philology institutes and universities.

    Disorders of sex development (DSD) affect the development of chromosomal, gonadal and/or anatomical sex. We analyzed a patient with ambiguous genitalia aiming to correlate the genetic findings with the phenotype. Blood and tissue samples from a male patient with penoscrotal hypospadias were analyzed by immunohistochemistry, karyotyping and FISH. DNA was sequenced for the AR, SRY and DHH genes, and further 26 loci in different sex chromosomes were analyzed by MLPA. The gonosomal origin was evaluated by simple tandem repeat (STR) analysis and SNP array. Histopathology revealed a streak gonad, a fallopian tube and a rudimentary uterus, positive for placental alkaline phosphatase, cytokeratin-7 and c-kit, and negative for estrogen, androgen and progesterone receptors, alpha-inhibin, alpha-1-fetoprotein, β-hCG, and oct-4. Karyotyping showed a 45,X/46,XY mosaicism, yet FISH showed both 46,XX/46,XY mosaicism (gonad and urethral plate), 46,XX (uterus and tube) and 46,XY karyotypes (rudimentary testicular tissue). DNA sequencing revealed intact sequences in SOX9, WNT4, NR0B1, NR5A1, CYP21A2, SRY, AR, and DHH. STR analysis showed only one maternal allele for all X chromosome markers (uniparental isodisomy, UPD), with a weaker SRY signal and a 4:1 ratio in the X:Y signal. Our findings suggest that the observed complex DSD phenotype is the result of somatic gonosomal mosaicism and UPD despite a normal blood karyotype. The presence of UPD warrants adequate genetic counseling for the family and frequent, lifelong, preventive follow-up controls in the patient.

    2002-08-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Spontaneous premature ovarian failure presents most commonly with secondary amenorrhea. Young women with the disorder are infertile and experience the symptoms and sequelae of estrogen deficiency. The mechanisms that give rise to spontaneous premature ovarian failure are largely unknown, but many reports suggest a genetic mechanism in some cases. The small family size associated with infertility makes genetic linkage analysis studies extremely difficult. Another approach that has proven successful has been to examine candidate genes based on known genetic phenotypes in other species. Studies in mice have demonstrated that c-kit, a transmembrane tyrosine kinase receptor, plays a critical role in gametogenesis. Here we test the hypothesis that human KIT mutations might be a cause of spontaneous premature ovarian failure. Methods and Results We examined 42 women with spontaneous premature ovarian failure and found partial X monosomy in two of them. In the remaining 40 women with known 46,XX spontaneous premature ovarian failure we evaluated the entire coding region of the KIT gene. We did this using polymerase chain reaction based single-stranded conformational polymorphism analysis and DNA sequencing. We did not identify a single mutation that would alter the amino acid sequence of the c-KIT protein in any of 40 patients (upper 95% confidence limit is 7.2%. We found one silent mutation at codon 798 and two intronic polymorphisms. Conclusion Mutations in the coding regions of the KIT gene appear not to be a common cause of 46,XX spontaneous premature ovarian failure in North American women.

    Full Text Available La formación del discurso en salud mental durante la primera mitad del siglo XX tiene en el Movimiento de Higiene Mental y en el Comité Nacional de Higiene Mental sus principales influencias. Como depositarios de un estilo de pensamiento biomédico, los dos entes mencionados tomaron la vocería en el campo de la salud mental, el cual para la época bajo estudio adolecía de una clara diferenciación conceptual. Con el objeto de comprender la influencia que ejerció este estilo de pensamiento en la formación del discurso en salud mental durante la primera mitad del siglo XX, se desarrollo una revisión de literatura de la época, empleando para tal fin una propuesta teórica que combinó el análisis del discurso de Michel Foucault y la sociología del conocimiento de Ludwik Fleck. Los resultados evidencian una hegemonía del estilo de pensamiento biomédico para abordar la salud mental, representada principalmente en el empleo de la prevención como estrategia de trabajo; de igual forma se constató que fueron los médicos, psiquiatras y salubristas de la época quienes asumieron para sí, como colectivo de pensamiento, la autoridad para hablar y actuar sobre la salud mental de la población, relegando a un segundo plano otros colectivos de pensamiento.

    Full Text Available El fenómeno musical en la edad contemporánea fue una expresión singular de un modo de trabar las relaciones sociales y un mecanismo de ejercicio de poder por parte de la burguesía, de la misma forma que había sucedido en épocas más remotas con las grandes monarquías absolutas o con la Iglesia de Roma. A su vez, en ocasiones, fue un elemento revolucionario, crítico con el orden establecido y agente activo en el cambio político y social. De esta forma, la producción musical de cada período histórico puede reflejar valores de la clase dominante y argumentos legitimadores de su poder. Asimismo, paralelamente a esto, pueden localizarse obras en las que, por el contrario, se realiza una crítica al sistema, convirtiéndose en preconizadoras o colaboradoras de grandes cambios político-sociales. No por obvio debemos dejar de recordar que la actividad cultural desarrollada por los grandes creadores a lo largo de la historia es un reflejo de su tiempo, de la sociedad de la que ha surgido la obra. Concretamente, en este artículo se estudian las posibilidades que el fenómeno musical tiene como elemento de análisis del siglo XX.____________________ABSTRACT:The contemporary musical development has uniquely expressed a form of weaving together social relationships, and has also represented a type of practice with which the world powers have exerted their influences, in the same way as the absolute monarchies or the Roman Church did in far-off times. But in some occasions, it has also been a revolutionary component, critical with the established system and determinant in the political and social change. In this way the musical production in each historical period can mirror the values of the governing class and their reasons to remain in power. At the same time as well, there are some works which on the other hand criticize the established system, advocating and taking part in the main socio-political changes.

    To gain a better understanding of the risk significance of low power and shutdown modes of operation, the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research at the NRC established programs to investigate the likelihood and severity of postulated accidents that could occur during low power and shutdown (LP&S) modes of operation at commercial nuclear power plants. To investigate the likelihood of severe core damage accidents during off power conditions, probabilistic risk assessments (PRAs) were performed for two nuclear plants: Unit 1 of the Grand Gulf Nuclear Station, which is a BWR-6 Mark III boiling water reactor (BWR), and Unit 1 of the Surry Power Station, which is a three-loop, subatmospheric, pressurized water reactor (PWR). The analysis of the BWR was conducted at Sandia National Laboratories while the analysis of the PWR was performed at Brookhaven National Laboratory. This multi-volume report presents and discusses the results of the BWR analysis. The subject of this part presents the deterministic code calculations, performed with the MELCOR code, that were used to support the development and quantification of the PRA models. The background for the work documented in this report is summarized, including how deterministic codes are used in PRAS, why the MELCOR code is used, what the capabilities and features of MELCOR are, and how the code has been used by others in the past. Brief descriptions of the Grand Gulf plant and its configuration during LP&S operation and of the MELCOR input model developed for the Grand Gulf plant in its LP&S configuration are given.

    Full Text Available Este ensayo tiene como fin observar las similitudes y diferencias del impacto del nacionalismo en los regímenes dictatoriales del primer cuarto del siglo XX y su repercusión en la población, así como sus conexiones con la cultura de la época, que se venía fraguando desde el siglo XIX. Uno de los principales rectores del análisis es el tronco filosófico-político del que ambas ideologías beben; el segundo es la creación de Estados-nación y nacionalización de las masas. En cuanto a la estructura, en primer lugar se establecen las premisas básicas del cambio del discurso nacionalista; en segundo lugar se analiza el tronco filosófico-ideológico esbozado en la primera parte. Por último, se observa la incidencia de estas premisas en nuestro objeto de estudio, el franquismo en su comparación con el nacionalsocialismo alemán. Se trata de un análisis que se adentra en las explicaciones culturales, sin embargo no debe entenderse éste como el único posible, sino como una parte más para comprender dichos fenómenos.

    Full Text Available An historical study is undertaken to show the conflictive interaction between man as a fisher and dolphins in Galicia, which results in a chase of cetaceans, held responsible as predators for the driving away of fish schools from the coastal waters and for the damaging of fishermen's nets. Special attention is given to the most peculiar aspects of this chase, such as its legislation, the massive killing of dolphins in Pontevedra, or the chasing runs by navy patrolboats in the river estuaries of Galicia. Finally, after mentioning the attempts at establishing a dolphin industry in the 18th and 19thcenturies, a study is made of the most ambitious plan undertaken in the 20th century to secure the involvement of the whaling industry into this activity. The study also refers to the situation of this activity in the rest of Spain both for its direct relationship with and as a precedent for the Galician case, and makes a comparison between them.

    Se realiza un estudio histórico sobre la problemática interacción entre el hombre como pescador y los definidos en Galicia, con la consiguiente persecución de los cetáceos, a los cuales culpan de la escasez de pescado, como depredadores y ahuyentadores de los bancos de peces lejos de la costa, además de ocasionar destrozos en las redes. Se presta especial atención a los aspectos más peculiares de su persecución, como la legislación, los consejos del ilustrado fray Martín Sarmiento, las corridas de arroaces en Pontevedra o las batidas por parte de las patrulleras de la Armada dentro de las rías. Finalmente, tras haber aludido a las primeras tentativas de industrialización de las manadas de delfines desde el siglo XVIII, se analiza el proyecto más destacado en el siglo XX, intentando involucrar en el negocio a la industria ballenera gallega. Todo ello sin obviar lo que acontece en el resto de España por su relación directa, como precedente del caso gallego o

    Full Text Available El análisis del rol desempeñado por las redes eclesiásticas en las relaciones centro-periferia, en un Estado como el español, caracterizado por los debates suscitados en torno a este binomio durante una buena parte del siglo XX, nos adentra en la dimensión alcanzada por la cuestión territorial en la administración de las diócesis y provincias eclesiásticas, la promoción vocacional del clero y la selección de sus más cualificados dirigentes. La acción y el discurso de los órganos pontificios y las diversas instituciones de la Iglesia en España incidirán no sólo en el desarrollo de prácticas pastorales más atentas a las peculiaridades culturales y sociales propias de cada Iglesia local, sino también en la singular trayectoria de los diversos proyectos de construcción nacional que compitieron durante la pasada centuria.      Palabras clave: Vaticano, España, diócesis, provincia eclesiástica, regionalismo, nacionalismo.  _____________ Abstract: The analysis of the role played by the church networks in center-periphery relations in a state such as Spain, characterized by the discussions on this pair at least for most of the 20th century, takes us into the dimension reached by the territorial issue in the administration of dioceses and ecclesiastical provinces, vocational promotion of the clergy and the selection of its most qualified leaders. The action and discourse of the pontifical bodies and several institutions of the Church in Spain will impact not only in pastoral practices more alive to the social and cultural peculiarities, but also in the unique path of various nation-building projects which competed during the last century.      Keywords: Vatican, Spain, dioceses, ecclesiastical provinces, regionalism, nationalism.

Corruption as a complex social phenomenon that occurs in the process of socio-economic, political and social relations has become one of the most pressing political, social and economic problems of modern Russia. The corruption in the state apparatus not only cause serious, sometimes unsolvable problems for the citizens, but also hinder the normal functioning of the administrative bodies and authorities. The legal component, the development and adoption of relevant laws perform a special role in combating corruption. For many centuries government has repeatedly attempted if not to eliminate or at least to curb corruption in numerous managerial and administrative apparatus. The greatest interest in this regard is the imperial period of Russian history.

    Full Text Available En el siglo XX podemos distinguir dos grandes ciclos políticos de onda larga. En el primero las dictaduras son fuertes y la democracia encuentra serias dificultades para mantenerse. En el segundo los regímenes autoritarios son los débiles y la democracia se extiende y fortalece. Estos ciclos coinciden con otros de tipo económico. La concordancia se debe a que los problemas de cada ciclo económico se abordan de manera más eficaz desde las correspondientes formas políticas generadas por los imperativos de la economía. Igual que las crisis de 1920 y 1929 contribuyeron a la expansión del fascismo y del autoritarismo, las de 1973 y 1979 coadyuvaron a la de la democracia. Este postulado no debe interpretarse de manera mecanicista; se trata de explicar un proceso histórico general, el de las transiciones democráticas del último cuarto del siglo XX, investigando una de las claves, quizá la más importante, las fluctuaciones de la economía.In the 20th century, we can differentiate two major long wave political cycles. In tfie first one, dictatorstiips become strong, while democracy finds itself at great pains to maintain its claims. In the second cycle, authoritarian regimes weaken and democracy spreads and grows stronger. There two cycles coincide with others of economic nature. This coincidence is due to the fact that in each economic cycle, problems are more efficiently deait with as seen from their corresponding political Systems, generated in turn by the imperativos of economy. In the same way as the crisis of 1920 and 1929 contribute to expand fascism and authoritarianism, so those of 1973 and 1979 also favoured the expansión of democracy. This postúlate should not be interpreted in a mechanistic way; we are trying to explain a general historical process, the transitions to democracy in the final quarter of the 20th century, investigating one of the key factors, perhaps the fundamental one, which is the fluctuations in economy.

  5. Renormalized Volume

    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.

    A molecular investigation of 16 Bantu-speaking Black XX true hermaphrodites was undertaken in an attempt to determine the cause of the disorder. Y-specific sequences, including sequences mapping to the sex-determining region of the Y, were shown to be absent from lymphocyte tissue of all 16 patients tested. Y chromosome sequences were also absent from the ovarian and testicular components of both ovotestes of a single XX true hermaphrodite, thus excluding gonadal mosaicism involving Y chromosome sequences. Since there is evidence of Xp genes involved in testis determination/differentiation, uniparental disomy of the X chromosome was investigated in 14 XXTH families. Uniparental disomy was excluded in 12 of the 14 families, and isodisomy was excluded in the remaining two cases. 29 refs., 2 tabs.

    Rumex papillaris Boiss, & Reut., an Iberian endemic, belongs to the section Acetosa of the genus Rumex whose main representative is R. acetosa L., a species intensively studied in relation to sex-chromosome evolution. Here, we characterize cytogenetically the chromosomal complement of R. papillaris in an effort to enhance future comparative genomic approaches and to better our understanding of sex chromosome structure in plants. Rumex papillaris, as is common in this group, is a dioecious species characterized by the presence of a multiple sex chromosome system (with females 2n = 12 + XX and males 2n = 12 + XY(1)Y(2)). Except for the X chromosome both Y chromosomes are the longest in the karyotype and appear heterochromatic due to the accumulation of at least two satellite DNA families, RAE180 and RAYSI. Each chromosome of pair VI has an additional major heterochromatin block at the distal region of the short arm. These supernumerary heterochromatic blocks are occupied by RAE730 satellite DNA family. The Y-related RAE180 family is also present in an additional minor autosomal locus. Our comparative study of the chromosomal organization of the different satellite-DNA sequences in XX/XY and XX/XY(1)Y(2) Rumex species demonstrates that of active mechanisms of heterochromatin amplification occurred and were accompanied by chromosomal rearrangements giving rise to the multiple XX/XY(1)Y(2) chromosome systems observed in Rumex. Additionally, Y(1) and Y(2) chromosomes have undergone further rearrangements leading to differential patterns of Y-heterochromatin distribution between Rumex species with multiple sex chromosome systems.

    We assess the outcome in 46,XX men with congenital adrenal hyperplasia who were born with Prader 4 or 5 genitalia and assigned male gender at birth. After receiving institutional review board approval and subject consent we reviewed the medical records of 12 men 35 to 69 years old with 46,XX congenital adrenal hyperplasia, of whom 6 completed social and gender issue questionnaires. All subjects were assigned male gender at birth, were diagnosed with virilizing congenital adrenal hyperplasia at age greater than 3 years and indicated a male gender identity with sexual orientation to females. Ten of the 12 subjects had always lived as male and 2 who were reassigned to female gender in childhood subsequently self-reassigned as male. Nine of the 12 men had long-term female partners, including 7 married 12 years or more. The 3 subjects without a long-term female partner included 1 priest, 1 who was reassigned female gender, married, divorced and self-reassigned as male, and 1 with a girlfriend and sexual activity. All except the priest and the subject who was previously married when female indicated a strong libido and frequent orgasmic sexual activity. Responses to self-esteem, masculinity, body image, social adjustment and symptom questionnaires suggested adjustments related to the extent of familial and social support. Outcome data on severely masculinized 46,XX patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia who were assigned male gender at birth indicate male gender identity in adulthood with satisfactory male sexual function in those retaining male genitalia. In men who completed questionnaires results were poorer in those lacking familial/social support. Male gender of rearing may be a viable option for parents whose children are born with congenital adrenal hyperplasia, a 46,XX karyotype and male genitalia, although positive parental and other support, and counseling are needed for adjustment.

  17. XX/XY System of Sex Determination in the Geophilomorph Centipede Strigamia maritima.

    Full Text Available We show that the geophilomorph centipede Strigamia maritima possesses an XX/XY system of sex chromosomes, with males being the heterogametic sex. This is, to our knowledge, the first report of sex chromosomes in any geophilomorph centipede. Using the recently assembled Strigamia genome sequence, we identified a set of scaffolds differentially represented in male and female DNA sequence. Using quantitative real-time PCR, we confirmed that three candidate X chromosome-derived scaffolds are present at approximately twice the copy number in females as in males. Furthermore, we confirmed that six candidate Y chromosome-derived scaffolds contain male-specific sequences. Finally, using this molecular information, we designed an X chromosome-specific DNA probe and performed fluorescent in situ hybridization against mitotic and meiotic chromosome spreads to identify the Strigamia XY sex-chromosome pair cytologically. We found that the X and Y chromosomes are recognizably different in size during the early pachytene stage of meiosis, and exhibit incomplete and delayed pairing.

    We investigate how thermal quantum discord $(QD)$ and classical correlations $(CC)$ of a two qubit one-dimensional XX Heisenberg chain in thermal equilibrium depend on temperature of the bath as well as on nonuniform external magnetic fields applied to two qubits and varied separately. We show that the behaviour of $QD$ differs in many unexpected ways from thermal entanglement $(EN)$. For the nonuniform case, $(B_1= - B_2)$ we find that $QD$ and $CC$ are equal for all values of $(B_1=-B_2)$ and for different temperatures. We show that, in this case, the thermal states of the system belong to a class of mixed states and satisfy certain conditions under which $QD$ and $CC$ are equal. The specification of this class and the corresponding conditions is completely general and apply to any quantum system in a state in this class and satisfying these conditions. We further find the relative contributions of $QD$ and $CC$ can be controlled easily by changing the relative magnitudes of $B_1$ and $B_2$.

Se advierte la dimensión continental de la emergencia de movimientos, agrupaciones, revistas y autores neovanguardistas a partir de fines de los años 50 y hasta los años 80 al menos. Lo anterior ha producido una nueva semioticidad que emparenta la escritura poética con las artes visuales, escénicas, musicales, audiovisuales y digitales, generando nuevos discursos y nuevos repertorios. Estos procesos suponen el reciclaje y resemantización de los de los ideales antiartísticos de tradición vanguardista y, particularmente, del proyecto arte-vida, revitalizando la relación entre arte y política, en consonancia con los debates públicos y las transformaciones en los sistemas de producción cultural. Se analizan como ejemplos de poesía experimental, visual y accional, a dos poetas chilenos: Cecilia Vicuña y Juan Luis Martínez.

    The Hurst exponent of very long birth time series in Romania has been extracted from official daily records, i.e. over 97 years between 1905 and 2001 included. The series result from distinguishing between families located in urban (U) or rural (R) areas, and belonging (Ox) or not (NOx) to the orthodox religion. Four time series combining both criteria, (U,R) and (Ox, NOx), are also examined. A statistical information is given on these sub-populations measuring their XX-th century state as a snapshot. However, the main goal is to investigate whether the "daily" production of babies is purely noisy or is fluctuating according to some non trivial fractional Brownian motion, - in the four types of populations, characterized by either their habitat or their religious attitude, yet living within the same political regime. One of the goals was also to find whether combined criteria implied a different behavior. Moreover, we wish to observe whether some seasonal periodicity exists. The detrended fluctuation analysis...

    Full Text Available The article deals with the forms of agitation and mass art, the creation of which was authorized by the Bolsheviks in the 20ies of the XX century for effective advocacy activities. It is noted, that agitation and mass art is one of the most important and effective means of policies and has played a huge role in the establishment of Soviet power. Propaganda direction was manifested in the both of drawing and painting and was aimed at the formation of a new proletarian thinking in a socialist society. It is stated, that the content of works of art is determined, above all, by the military-political situation that prevailed in the 20-ies. It is shown, that in the works of art displayed figures of the new revolutionary themes, events and characters, but also significant presence of the image of the new man - working men and women, sailors, soldiers, peasants was traced. Festive decoration of cities and towns, from the capital to the smallest provincial towns was filled with agitation and propaganda content. The conclusion is that artistic and political design of squares, streets, public buildings should help to create a festive mood, increase employment, ideological and socio-political activity of the workers. In general, new forms of agitation and propaganda were created through art, by turning the novelty of content, depth of the emotional impact, thematic literacy and specificity for the necessary psychological mood of society during the study period

    Full Text Available SAE 9260 type steels have silicon and carbon contents similar to those of the ductile iron matrix, and present a bainitic transformation with the same characteristics as ADI (Austempered Ductile Iron. The hypothesis is that excellent mechanical properties can be obtained by means of austempering (in times so short as to be accessible from the industrial point of view, the same as in ADI and even better because it is a rolling material instead of a cast material. It will be compared with the mechanical properties obtained by quenching and tempering at different temperatures.

    La composición química de los aceros SAE 92XX es similar a la de la matriz metálica de una fundición esferoidal, por lo que se pensó en someter a un acero de ese tipo a tratamientos de austempering similares a los que se aplican para lograr una ADI (Austempered Ductile Iron, y verificar si se alcanzaban valores aceptables de plasticidad con elevados valores de resistencia a la tracción para el mismo acero, tal y como sucede con aquellas fundiciones, y comparar dichos resultados con los obtenidos en el mismo acero con tratamientos convencionales de temple y revenido. Se alcanzaron valores que demostraron que, por austempering, se logran excelentes valores de plasticidad, muy superiores a los alcanzados por temple y revenido para durezas del mismo orden.

    Full Text Available El uso de los manuales en economía ha sido masivo en su profesionalización y ha repercutido en las ideas económicas colombianas. Durante el siglo XX se presentaron cuatro etapas; la primera de ellas se dio a inicios del siglo, cuando predominó el autodidactismo en los manuales franceses, entre profesores, políticos y hombres de empresa de Bogotá y Medellín. La segunda etapa se caracterizó por el contacto de algunos protoeconomistas con el pensamiento económico original en el exterior, lo que ocasionó el inicio de la crítica a la utilización de manuales. La tercera surgió con las primeras facultades de Economía, en los años 40, época en que se reemplazó el manual francés por el anglosajón neoclásico; y la última etapa se inicia desde 1980, cuando se hace una crítica coherente al manual y comienza la producción de textos “criollos”, que ofrecen facilidades pedagógicas con pensamiento teórico de vanguardia.

Lo hace tomando apoyo en la noción de configuraciones de sujeto como operador analítico y usando como corpus textos autobiográficos en cuanto se considera que ellos son una vía privilegiada para este tipo de estudios. El texto se inicia con una presentación de los fundamentos teóricos y metodológicos que lo sustentan y, posteriormente, discute tres rasgos sobresalientes de las configuraciones de sujeto encontradas para el caso peruano en el momento histórico estudiado y lo que ellos revelan sobre el lazo social.This paper approaches the study of the subject and the social bond in the case of Peru in the first three decades of the 20th century. It uses as analytical operator the notion of subject configurations and it is based upon the analysis of autobiographical texts. The text begins with the presentation of its theoretical and methodological foundations and then goes on to discuss three of the main features of the subject configurations founding of these texts, and their meaning for the understanding of the social bond.

    Oscillating Algol-type eclipsing binaries (oEA) are very interesting objects that have three observational features of eclipse, pulsation, and mass transfer. Direct measurement of their masses and radii from the double-lined radial velocity data and photometric light curves would be the most essential for understanding their evolutionary process and for performing the asteroseismological study. We present the physical properties of the oEA star XX Cep from high-resolution time-series spectroscopic data. The effective temperature of the primary star was determined to be 7,946 $\\pm$ 240 K by comparing the observed spectra and the Kurucz models. We detected the absorption lines of the secondary star, which had never been detected in previous studies, and obtained the radial velocities for both components. With the published $BVRI$ light curves, we determined the absolute parameters for the binary via Wilson-Devinney modeling. The masses and radii are $M_{1} = 2.49 \\pm 0.06$ $M_\\odot$, $M_{2} = 0.38 \\pm 0.01$ $M_...

    Full Text Available El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar los cambios sociodemográficos más significativos ocurridos en los hogares latinoamericanos durante la segunda mitad del siglo xx. Para ello se tienen en cuenta dos aspectos fundamentales: la posible convergencia hacia las familias pequeñas y nucleares; y la naturaleza e incremento de los hogares con jefatura femenina. Se intenta no sólo sintetizar el conocimiento existente sobre dichos temas, sino también dar cuenta de las conexiones entre los cambios sociodemográficos de los hogares y la desigualdad social y de género persistente en América Latina. Algunas de las principales conclusiones son: a A pesar de la existencia de un claro proceso de nuclearización en los hogares latinoamericanos, la importancia de los arreglos familiares de tipo extendido continúa siendo distintiva del sistema familiar en la región, especialmente entre la población de escasos recursos; y b los hogares encabezados por mujeres muestran un claro incremento, y posiblemente éste se aprecie en diversos sectores de nuestras sociedades.

En menos de dos siglos el país perdió más de dos tercios de su patrimonio forestal autóctono. Hoy le quedan menos 33 millones de hectáreas forestales. La explotación de la esta extraordinaria riqueza forestal Argentina, es el punto de partida de este análisis que se propone trazar un cuadro interpretativo – desde una perspectiva histórico-ambiental – de la evolución de las transformaciones histórico-ambientales de la región del Gran Chaco Argentino en el siglo XX, sus ciclos productivos y su relación con la expansión del modelo de agricultura capitalista. Nuestro objetivo central es, entonces, el estudio histórico-ambiental de este proceso de transformación de esta región, en el contexto de su incorporación al mercado y la relación que se establece entre este proceso de deforestación y la expansión de la frontera agrícola, su transformación artificial, conflictos, grados de especialización, racionalidad, interacción y el deterioro progresivo de los mismos.

    In this study, the annual cycle of the gonadal steroids testosterone (T), 11-ketotestosterone (11-KT), 17β-oestradiol (E2) and 17α, 20β-dihydroxy-4-pregnen-3-one (DHP) was determined using radioimmunoassay and then compared, for XY males (n=35) and sex-reversed XX males (n=27) rainbow trout, to establish possible endocrinology differences. Both in XY males and sex-reversed XX males, significant correlation was shown between body weight and T (r=0.5046 and 0.34078, respectively; psex-reversed XX males were similar and showed an intense seasonal variation. The highest levels for T and 11-KT were detected from December to April with a peak in January (51.67 ± 5.11 and 61.95 ± 4.25 ng/ml, for XY males and 57.1 ± 5.82 and 59.27 ± 4.84 ng/ml, respectively, for XX males). In addition, there was a positive correlation (psex-reversed XX males (r=0.6019). Concentrations of DHP in XY males also showed seasonal variation with a peak in February (25.18 ± 12.99 ng/ml). However, DHP levels in sex-reversed XX males were undetectable (sex-reversed XX males were similar to those observed in XY males. The only difference in the annual gonadal steroid cycle between XY and sex-reversed XX males was in the DHP profile. © 2009 Blackwell Verlag GmbH.

    17α-hydroxylase deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by sexual infantilism, amenorrhea, hypertension and hypokalemia, which is caused by mutations in the CYP17A1 gene. To date, more than 50 mutations in this gene have been described. The clinical features and biochemical data of a pair of 46,XY and 46,XX Chinese siblings with 17α-hydroxylase deficiency from Singapore were studied. Direct DNA sequence analysis of the CYP17A1 gene was performed. There was significant phenotypic variation between the siblings. The proband (46,XY) presented classically with sexual infantilism, amenorrhea and hypertension. The younger sibling (46,XX) also presented with amenorrhea, but she had breast development and absence of hypokalemic hypertension. The same compound heterozygous mutations in CYP17A1 gene were identified in both patients. A missense mutation (P409R) was detected in exon 7, and a 9-bp deletion (D487-S488-F489del) was detected in exon 8. We confirmed the diagnosis of 17α-hydroxylase deficiency in these two patients. Both P409R and D487-S488-F489del have been described previously and are widely propagated in the Chinese population in East and Southeast Asia. We propose that the phenotypic expression of affected individuals with 17α-hydroxylase deficiency is karyotype-dependent, with individuals having the 46,XX karyotype having less pronounced clinical symptoms.

  16. Unique sex chromosome systems in Ellobius: How do male XX chromosomes recombine and undergo pachytene chromatin inactivation?

    Most mammalian species have heteromorphic sex chromosomes in males, except for a few enigmatic groups such as the mole voles Ellobius, which do not have the Y chromosome and Sry gene. The Ellobius (XX ♀♂) system of sex chromosomes has no analogues among other animals. The structure and meiotic behaviour of the two X chromosomes were investigated for males of the sibling species Ellobius talpinus and Ellobius tancrei. Their sex chromosomes, despite their identical G-structure, demonstrate short synaptic fragments and crossover-associated MLH1 foci in both telomeric regions only. The chromatin undergoes modifications in the meiotic sex chromosomes. SUMO-1 marks a small nucleolus-like body of the meiotic XX. ATR and ubiH2A are localized in the asynaptic area and the histone γH2AFX covers the entire XX bivalent. The distribution of some markers of chromatin inactivation differentiates sex chromosomes of mole voles from those of other mammals. Sex chromosomes of both studied species have identical recombination and meiotic inactivation patterns. In Ellobius, similar chromosome morphology masks the functional heteromorphism of the male sex chromosomes, which can be seen at meiosis.

This was particularly expressed on the terri- tory of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY, were a few independent states were created at the beginning of XX century. All these changes reflected also in the field of culture and science and created ob- stacles for many cultural events, and especially scientific researches of certain phenome- na in these territories at the beginning of the XXI century. These difficulties will continue to be present for many years because the SFRY was disintegrated in wars, violence and crimes resulting in impossibility to establish faster normal collaboration between the newly created states. This problem has not speared even the researches in history of physical culture of the XX century on the territory of former SFRY, because no normal communication bet- ween some of the newly formed states has been established, so the access to researches of primary historic resources, which is necessary in heurictc phase, is lacking. Therefore it is necessary to establish collaboration between colleagues-resear- chers from these territories, more that usually in order to create possibilities for valid researches with objective and worthy conclusions

Posturas neoprehispánicas mediante las cuales la burguesía nacional intentó crear una cultura que abarcaba a todas las clases de México (Shchavelzon, 1988. Las transiciones durante el siglo XX impactaron puntualmente en el uso del espacio público por todos aquellos movimientos sociales que se efectuaron en las décadas de los sesentas, setentas u ochentas en busca de respuestas e inclusive se habla de su monopolización por el grupo político dominante: El espacio público era hasta hace unas décadas el ámbito donde la noción de política se ceñía a la obtención y retención del poder, y rechazaba por ¡inútil! o ¡subversiva! la defensa y la promoción de los intereses comunitarios. En México, durante la mayor parte del siglo 20, al espacio público lo monopoliza el aparato de gobierno. (Monsiváis, 2008. Es importante mencionar que el siglo XX es un periodo en donde se produjo una gran cantidad de espacios abiertos y de monumentos u objetos escultóricos con una notable influencia partidista (Hernández, 2009. Por lo tanto a lo largo del siglo pasado el espacio público experimentó una serie de transformaciones que afectaron de una manera radical la concepción del mismo así como de su aspecto físico y la manera de utilizarlos, no se duda que el siglo XXI será un periodo de cambios que radicarán principalmente en aspectos de seguridad y cohesión social.

O trabalho utiliza dados de mais de 40 mil propriedades rurais para examinar a estrutura de produção e a especialização produtiva em onze regiões que cobrem a totalidade do território do estado de São Paulo no auge da economia cafeeira. Além das regiões, o artigo aborda como as propriedades rurais distribuíram seus recursos produtivos entre produto de exportação (café e produtos destinados ao consumo interno. A análise traz à luz novas evidências, corroborando parte da literatura, mas divergindo de outras ideias estabelecidas na historiografia. No início do século XX, virtualmente todas as regiões de São Paulo produziam café, mas quase todas elas se especializaram em mais de um produto agrícola, com a exceção da região da Mogiana. Além das grandes propriedades ressaltadas na literatura, as pequenas propriedades também foram atraídas para a produção de exportação e se especializaram na produção do café. Por sua vez, as grandes propriedades não só se especializaram na produção de alimentos (além do café, mas dominaram a oferta dos principais produtos destinados ao mercado doméstico.

    Full Text Available Resumen En el trabajo se estudian los discursos sobre la cura que elaboraron los médicos mentalistas españoles en la transición del siglo XIX al XX. Si en las décadas de los años 1870 y 1880 el discurso preponderante promulgado por los médicos pertenecientes a instituciones privadas era extremadamente optimista, posteriormente cambió y se orientó hacia un mayor pesimismo terapéutico. Sin embargo, dadas las necesidades profesionales de los frenópatas, siguieron mostrando una confianza más o menos firme hacia las capacidades terapéuticas de la psiquiatría. La recepción de las nuevas nosologías, como la de Kraepelin, estuvo condicionada, en parte, por la actitud hacia la cura de los médicos mentalistas de la época y fue aceptada de forma ambivalente.

The author points out the key transformations of Russian and Buryat farmers of Transbaikal region resulted from transition to capitalist production relations. The facts and data of market and goods/money relationships of Buryat farmers are firstly introduced for scientific use. The role of Buryat settlements (uluses in developing market channels for agricultural products and hired agricultural labor forces are analyzed. The author conclusively proves the increase in capacity of agricultural industries and handicrafts among rural inhabitants based on the preceding scientists’ papers, making use of existing historical literature on the subject matter and appealing to a wide variety of published and unpublished papers. Some data about development of forest industries, cropping, hunting and fishing among indigenous population are of great interest as being the only thing for their livelihood. Moreover, it becomes possible to evaluate the degree of capitalist relations among Evenks farmers based on the survey of archival materials, the greater part of which are firstly introduced for scientific use.

    Full Text Available Purpose of the article is to analyze the philosophical and cultural ideas about television, which is a leading visual practice of XX century. It does not lose its relevance in the beginning of the XXI. The role of television lies in visual presentation and formation of the basic norms of taste and traditions of different social groups. Television is the leading communicative practice, which consideration is represented differently in modern science. Research methodology involves an appeal to the philosophical and cultural concepts, representing different approaches to the understanding of television. The paper considers the views of Western scholars, such as R. Arnheim, M. Wolff, A. Kroker, G. Lipovetsky, M. McLuhan, D. Mulvin, J. Mittell, N. Postman, L. Saffhil, J. Sterne, E. Thompson, J. Fiske, S. Shapiro. During analysis of the issue of the specific nature of television content the works of Russian scientists – T. Savitskaya, N. Samutina and Polish contemporary author – R. Sapenko were used. Originality lies in the depiction of the main approaches to the study of television as a visual communicative practice. Deployment of the author's position within the designated issues is presented as a historical digression – from the first attempts at understanding the phenomenon of television to the newest scientific theories that have found expression in contemporary American philosophical and cultural thought.

  10. NOTAS PARA UNA HISTORIA DE LAS RELACIONES VECINALES DE CHILE EN EL SIGLO XX

    Full Text Available En una retrospectiva histórica sobre las relaciones de Chile con sus países vecinos a lo largo del siglo XX hay algunas tendencias que resaltan y que pese a los cambios en el sistema internacional han tendido a permanecer a lo largo del tiempo, adquiriendo por tanto rasgos de “larga duración” o aquello que la Escuela Francesa de Historia de las Relaciones Internacionales denominó corrientesprofundas. Lo primero es que en la construcción mutua de nuestras identidades, estas se han basado durante períodos prolongados en la imagen del otro como un vecino amenazante, con lo cual las relaciones bilaterales tienden a ser percibidas como un juego en donde alguien pierde a costa de las ganancias del otro. Lo segundo es que la relación con nuestros vecinos, incluso con aquellos como en el caso de Argentina han tenido una mejoría significativa al menos desde la década de los 90s con la recuperación de la democracia en ambos países, ha mantenido cursos zigzagueantes entre la cooperación y el conflicto. Lo tercero es un notorio contraste entre la tendencia a la continuidad en la política exterior de Chile en relación a los temas vecinales, independiente del tipo de gobierno que exista, esta continuidad se ha explicado como política de estado, sin embargo, por sus características, esta difícilmente cumple con los estándares de una efectiva política de estado. De manera contrastante, las fluctuaciones en las políticas exteriores de nuestros vecinos han dependido del alto grado de personalismo en las decisiones, la menor institucionalización de la política interna y/o de las fluctuaciones en la popularidad de los gobernantes.

    Full Text Available This paper studies the first Japanese immigrants in Colombia. 1922-1936. This research is a compilation of legal resolutions dictated in the 1886 Colombia’s Republic Constitution towards immigration. Particularly, this research points out debates around the improvement of the race project through promoting alien immigration in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. To come up with such a compilation, reviewing primary official sources (laws and decrees, discourses and related literature was fundamental. The analysis of the research shows that there is a correlation between diverse laws that allowed or restricted aliens to enter the country. In addition the debates taking place in different groups of the local society around the benefits and disadvantages of letting immigrants enter the country.//Este artículo estudia la primera ola de inmigrantes japoneses hacia Colombia (1922-1936. Es una recopilación de las disposiciones legales formuladas desde la Constitución de la República de Colombia de 1886 frente a la inmigración en general y de los debates que se generaron con respecto al proyecto de mejorar la raza por medio de extranjeros a finales del siglo XIX y principios del siglo XX. Se utilizaron fuentes primarias oficiales (leyes y decretos, discursos y bibliografía referente al tema. Se encuentra una correlación entre la promulgación de leyes que restringieron o no la entrada de extranjeros. En algunos sectores de la sociedad se daban debates por los beneficios o desventajas de permitir el ingreso de inmigrantes en el país.

    Aim: To evaluate the clinical profile and management of 46 XX Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) patients presenting with severe virilization and assigned a male gender. Materials and Methods: Of 173 children diagnosed with CAH at the Pediatric Intersex Clinic since 1980, seven children with CAH presented late with severe virilization and were reared as males. All of them were assigned the male sex with removal of the female adnexa. Six were treated with male genitoplasty. Appropriate hormonal supplementation was offered after puberty. Results: The mean age at presentation was 14.2 years (7 – 21). Six patients had presented after puberty, only one at seven years of age. Staged male genitoplasty comprising of chordee correction, male urethroplasty, and bilateral testicular prosthesis was performed. The female adnexa (uterus, ovaries, most of the upper vagina, and the fallopian tubes) were removed. The mental makeup was masculine in six and bigender in one. Bilateral mastectomy was performed at puberty in all. Hormonal treatment comprised of glucocorticoids and testosterone. Six patients were comfortable with the outcome of the masculinizing genitoplasty. One had a short-sized phallus. One had repeated attacks of urinary tract infection arising from the retained lower vaginal pouch. Social adjustments were good in all, except in one who had a bigender mental makeup. Conclusion: CAH patients with severe virilization presenting late and reared as males are extremely rare. However, the assigned gender can be retained adequately as males, meeting the socioeconomic compulsions of the society. The results are satisfactory following appropriate surgical procedures and hormonal supplementation. PMID:23226638

    2008-01-01

    Summary A total of 27 competition days, more than 3000 athletes, over 10,000 components of the Olympic family, 3,500 workers, 2,500 volunteers, an overall business of more than 2 billion Euros. These, in a nutshell, are just a few of the data concerning the XX Olympic and the IX Paralympic Winter Games, Torino, Italy, 2006. Such a huge event, obviously required a meticulously organized medical service to cope with the healthcare of the athletes, official workers and the Olympic family, distributed over a geographic area of approximately 80 km in diameter. An ENT service was organized within the medical service, which was divided between 3 Polyclinics, in which 12 ENT Specialists were on duty. The present report gives an account of the final data concerning the service involved, together with a description of the approach used in the actual organization, with a view to providing useful information for colleagues who will be called upon, for a similar service, in future Olympic Winter Games. The ENT healthcare offered was confirmed to be proportional to the requirements, both from a qualitative and quantitative point of view. All the ENT specialists involved, reported having gained an immense store of human experience from having lived the Olympic atmosphere as a volunteer exerting one’s own profession. The facilities available in the Polyclinics, which were at a considerable distance from the Hospital, were found to be more than adequate with respect to the pathological conditions and service requested, particularly in 17% of the cases which would otherwise have been sent to a Hospital Outpatient Unit at least 80 km away.

    Full Text Available Dentro del marco de actuación estatal, en el ámbito mundial, las políticas sociales han pasado durante el siglo xx por dos periodos. El primero, después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, que prácticamente marcó el inicio del llamado Estado de bienestar, el cual se caracterizó principalmente, por su intervención en la actividad económica y por construir una red institucional para garantizar el cuasipleno empleo, permitir el acceso universal a la educación básica y la seguridad social, y por otorgar a un amplio sector de la población ciertas garantías sociales y un nivel mínimo de bienestar. El segundo inicia en la década de los ochenta, periodo en que se establecieron las primeras políticas de ajuste y de “retiro” del Estado de la economía —la instauración de las llamadas políticas neoliberales—, lo cual generó un cambio en la defi nición de la política social. Los criterios cambiaron, pues no interesó ya tanto la universalización de algunos benefi cios, sino la selección de la población considerada como pobre, a la cual dirigieron los esfuerzos de las políticas sociales.

    The results of climatic observations on the most northern land of Eurasia - Franz Josef Land, that was discovered in 1874, are presented. The gaps in the observations of the observatory named after Ernst Krenkel (Hayes's Island) were supplemented by calculations using reanalysis ERA Interim. It was received the positive trend in surface air temperature during 1958-2013. It is mainly achieved by increasing of the air temperature in winter but the summer trend is not statistically significant. Data of observation and reanalysis are perfectly correlated in cold period when underlying surface is uniform (correlation coefficient of more than 0.95). In summer, the correlation coefficients between the calculated and the real data are significantly lower (up to 0.68). This fact may be a consequence of the small values of the mean air temperatures of summer months (for example, during the July they varied in the interval -1-+2 degrees C.). Furthermore, it may be caused by the difficulty of model reproduction of the real state of the underlying surface, where land, ice, snow and water are chaotically combined. The analysis of circulation types by B.L. Dzerdzeevsky has shown that in the mid-XX Century, the northern meridional and western zonal types of circulation were replaced by southern meridional one, which prevailed during the first decade of the XXI too. This causes a reduction of the ice cover period, which resulted in a strengthening of the beach erosion and of slope processes. But short-term flows of warm air from the south, causing a catastrophic melting of glaciers, were also repeatedly marked in the past. This work is supported by the Russian Science Foundation (project № 14-37-00038) and by the national park "Russian Arctic".

Este papel nunca estuvo desligado de su lucha por el derecho de las mujeres a educarse, teniendo en cuenta que la Modernidad y la introducción de la mujer al mundo laboral le planteaban nuevos retos y le abrían nuevas perspectivas educativas. Si bien el lugar de la mujer en la sociedad seguía basándose en una visión determinista, que permanece hoy en algunos sectores de la sociedad, María Rojas no solo tenía esa perspectiva de mujer moderna, sino que tomaba la palabra en representación de las mujeres, rompiendo paradigmas e impulsando nuevas ideas en torno a ellas. María Rojas Tejada was an important part of a fundamental and leading educational process for Colombia early in the 20th century, helping with the introduction of foreign ideas coming from a current called new school; these ideas were contrary to the traditional ones of the country. Her role was never apart from her fight for the woman’s right to be education, bearing in mind that Modernity and introduction of women in the labor world represented new challenges and opened new educational perspectives for them. Despite the woman’s place in society was based on a deterministic view that is still seen in our society, María Rojas not only had the idea of a modern woman but raised her voice on behalf of women, breaking paradigms and promoting new ideas around women

    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...

    The condition of 46,XX maleness is characterized by testicular development in subjects who have two X chromosomes but who lack a normal Y chromosome. Several etiologies have been proposed to explain 46,XX maleness: (1) translocation of the testis-determining factor from the Y to the X chromosome, (2) mutation in an autosomal or X chromosome gene which permits testicular determination in the absence of TDF, and (3) undetected mosaicism with a Y-bearing cell line. The authors evaluated 10 affected subjects who were ascertained for different reasons and who had several distinct phenotypes. Six subjects had inherited sequences from the short arm of the Y chromosome including the sex-determining region Y gene (SRY). Five of the subjects were pubertal at the time of evaluation and had a phenotype similar to that of Klinefelter syndrome with evidence of Sertoli cell and Leydig cell dysfunction. One subject had evidence from Southern blot analysis and in situ hybridization for the presence of an intact Y chromosome in approximately 1% of cells. Three subjects lacked Y sequences by Southern blot analysis and by polymerase chain reaction amplification of SRY. These subjects were ascertained in the newborn period because of congenital anomalies. One had multiple anomalies including cardiac abnormalities; one had cardiac anomalies alone; and one had ambiguous genitalia. The data confirm the genetic heterogeneity of 46,XX maleness, in which some subjects have SRY while other subjects lack it. In addition, there is phenotypic heterogeneity among subjects who lack SRY suggesting that there is also genetic heterogeneity within this subgroup. 43 refs., 3 figs., 4 tabs.

    We attack the specific time-dependent Hamiltonian problem H=-12(tot)a∂xx+12ω2(tto)bx2. This corresponds to a time-dependent mass (TM) Schrödinger equation. We give the specific transformations to a different time-dependent quadratic Schrödinger equation (TQ) and to a different time-dependent oscillator (TO) equation. For each Schrödinger system, we give the Lie algebra of space-time symmetries, the number states, the squeezed-state and (with their classical motion), (Δx)2, (Δp)2, and the uncertainty product.

    The article presents results of analysis of works of late XIX--first quarter of XY centuries devoted to problems of social hygiene. It is established that origin of social hygiene was directly related to crucial revision of conceptions of causes and essence of diseases that created necessary conditions for transfer into medicine ideas and methods of political economy, sociology and eugenics. It is proved that origin of social hygiene was appropriate consequence of those crucial alterations in mass physician's consciousness that characterize scientific revolution in medicine of late XIX--first half XX centuries.

He partido de la base de que el carlismo es un movimiento más complejo de analizar de lo que a simple vista parece; que su evolución no ha sido lineal, y que no se puede hablar de uno, sino de varios carlismos. En este trabajo me he centrado en los acontecimientos que ha venido reivindicando el sector más progresista del mismo, y que de alguna manera son la justificación de su evolución hacia la izquierda, pero sin desdeñar otros aspectos que estarían más próximos al sector tradicionalista. He focalizado la evolución político-cultural del carlismo en los siguientes aspectos: la religiosidad; la sociabilidad en los Círculos Culturales; la defensa de las culturas autóctonas periféricas; la cultura obrera y sindical; la cultura juvenil y estudiantil; la cultura de la violencia; fiestas, ritos y conmemoraciones carlistas; y la evolución cultural e ideológica, incluyendo el papel de las mujeres.Across a few facts and events that have been given in the carlist movement during the 20th century, I have tried to shape the development or evolution of its political culture.

    Full Text Available El estudio de la atención a la infancia delincuente y de todas las instituciones encargadas de su tutela y educación es un asunto poco estudiado en Andalucía y en concreto en Sevilla. Hasta la implantación de los Tribunales para niños en España, el tratamiento de menores delincuentes tomaba el camino del hospicio o el de la cárcel de adultos. Existían escasos centros donde además de acogerlos se les diera educación. Hasta la época de entre siglos no hay una verdadera preocupación por el asunto, tanto en América como en Europa. En España, la protección de menores como empresa pública, organizada y regulada por el Estado, aparece a principios del siglo XX. Se origina en el marco de un movimiento de reforma social a partir de 1900, impulsado decididamente desde el Gobierno por la vía de la legislación social. Todo ello transformaría el Estado liberal-burgués en un Estado social de Derecho. Hubo una creciente concienciación por el tema que se reflejó en los temas de congresos, en publicaciones de libros y artículos. La preocupación se concretó en la Ley de Tribunales Tutelares de menores de 1918, con una jurisdicción especial que impedía su internamiento en prisiones. Para su funcionamiento, eran necesarias las instituciones auxiliares: las casas de observación y las casas tutelares o reformatorios. El retraso en su expansión se debe a que no existía presupuesto para crear todas las infraestructuras en cada provincia. En Sevilla hubo un movimiento intenso a través de la prensa para que se creara, en consonancia con lo que ocurría a nivel nacional. Y a pesar del interés político, tanto de instituciones judiciales, educativas o municipales no se implantó hasta 1930. La prensa será el impulso que necesitaba la ciudad para animar a su creación.

    2008-09-01

    Radiology was born in 1896 with the immediate recognition of the diagnostic value of X-rays in medicine and progressed throughout the XX Century with the increasing knowledge of its properties and clinical applications. By mid-century Radiology was a respected clinical specialty in advanced countries, the radiological report was a requirement in hospital practice and radiologists' opinions requested in scientific meetings. In the last decades of the century has had a spectacular expansion with the emergence of new imaging modalities and revolutionary technologies that have transformed the specialty worldwide. In Spain Radiology lagged behind needs and demand in 1950. Radiological practice was unregulated and performance of X-ray exams by non-radiologists was common. Teaching of Radiology was non-existent in Medical Schools or postgraduation. The diagnostic value of the specialty was unrecognized by physicians and the role of radiologists ignored. Most hospital radiology services were poorly equipped and functionally inadequate. The shadow of the Civil War (1936-39) was conditioning Radiology in the country. The point of inflexion in the development of Radiology in Spain was the inclusion of film reading sessions in the 1965 academic program of the Society of Radiology. It was in the presentation of cases at these conferences that Clinical Radiology found the finest demonstration ground and as a result was immediately adopted by radiologists and progressively applied in scientific meetings, clinical practices and training programs. Its influence was important in reforming hospital practice, legislation on specialization and education, as well as in national health care plans. At the end of the century radiology in Spain was at a par with the standards of other western nations. The author was a witness of the evolution of Radiology during his 50 years of professional life. This article does not pretend to be exhaustive in names or contributions. It is an overview of

    Full Text Available The phenomenon of exile in Europe, especially in France, throughout the 20th century and its peculiarities when compared to those in previous centuries is provided. Theoretical and conceptual definitions, including the terms “exiles”, “refugees” and “emigrants” have paramount importance in our historical reconstruction. Political exile and the broader problem of political refugees are dealt with, coupled to an in-depth analysis of the historical construction of the still binding international statute for refugees according to the 1951 Geneva Convention. The exile problem, taken within the context of the migration phenomenon, is intimately linked to the development of immigration policies and to economical and political structures. Actually it boils down to an investigation on possible typologies and the development of exile historiography.O presente artigo aborda o fenômeno do exílio europeu, com ênfase na França, no decorrer do século XX e as suas especificidades nesse século em relação à épocas anteriores. Definições teóricas e de conceitos, como as noções de “exilado”, “refugiado” e “emigrado”, assumem um papel essencial nessa reconstrução histórica. O exílio político e o problema mais amplo dos refugiados também são abordados com ênfase, com o estudo, inclusive, da construção histórica de um estatuto internacional do refugiado, organizado pela Convenção de Genebra de 1951 e até hoje em vigor. Mostra-se, enfim, como o problema do exílio, enquanto componente do fenômeno migratório, está estreitamente ligado à evolução das políticas de imigração e das conjunturas econômicas e políticas e apresenta-se uma reflexão sobre as tipologias possíveis e sobre a evolução da historiografia a respeito.

    Full Text Available The situation of women-musicians in Poland – a case study from the beginning of the XX century to the present day The aim of this article is to identify the changes, based on the biographies of selected women-musicians, which affected traditional musical culture from the strict adherence to roles and functions for both genders to the total collapse of these barriers. There are no observations concerning women-musicians in the XIX century or in the centuries before, neither in Polish ethnography nor in the ethomusicological literature. Women probably played musical instruments, but only at home or while tending domestic animals, however there is a lack of any source confirmation of public performances of women musicians. On account of the rare literature on the topic of gender studies in the field of Polish traditional music and the lack of the gender-thread in the remaining ethnomusicological literature, information on the topic of the current position of women-musicians was gathered first of all during interviews with them and with their families. The analysis is related to the way they speak about their own activities, performances, experiences. The author refers to opinions of only some selected interviewees, the most characteristic of particular generations. The first generation is represented by women born near the end of the XIX century, the second by women born before World War II, the third by women born directly after World War II. Women born after the 50’s and 60’s of the XX century are part of the fourth generation, because at that time the differences in the gender situation had become less apparent.   Sytuacja kobiet muzykantek w Polsce – studium przykładów od początku XX wieku do dziś Celem niniejszego artykułu jest scharakteryzowanie przebiegu zmian zachodzących w tradycyjnej kulturze muzycznej, na postawie życiorysów wybranych muzykantek, począwszy od ścisłego przestrzegania ról i funkcji obydwu p

    Full Text Available Resumen: A lo largo de la segunda mitad del siglo XX se han producido las más profundas transformaciones de la historia regional, impulsadas tanto por factores exógenos como endógenos de toda índole. Se ha pasado de una economía agraria de subsistencia a una economía competitiva de los servicios y del conocimiento, lo que ha supuesto enormes excedentes de mano de obra agraria hasta el final de siglo. Excedentes que fueron engrosando la intensa sangría emigratoria de los sesenta y setenta, que arrastró al 40% de la población regional. Sin embargo, desde comienzos de los ochenta, la población ha tendido a estabilizarse. Pero la emigración ya había provocado un estrangulamiento irreparable en las edades activas y de procreación, un fuerte descenso de la natalidad acentuado por la caída de la fecundidad posteriormente y un profundo envejecimiento. Por otra parte, la retención de los efectivos jóvenes y adultos en sus lugares de origen, junto a otros factores, incrementaron el paro hasta niveles desconocidos, si bien es un fenómeno que se ha conseguido paliar en buena medida en los últimos años del siglo. El futuro se presenta incierto, pues aunque no existe ningún núcleo abandonado, el envejecimiento, la baja natalidad y el paro están hipotecando el desarrollo endógeno de los núcleos rurales de la región.Summary: Along the second half of the 20th century the deepest transformations of the regional history have been produced so much by factors exogenous as endogenous of every kind.

    The perception of gender development of individuals with complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS) as unambiguously female has recently been challenged in both qualitative data and case reports of male gender identity. The aim of the mixed-method study presented was to examine the self-perception of CAIS individuals regarding different aspects of gender and to identify commonalities and differences in comparison with subfertile and infertile XX-chromosomal women with diagnoses of Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome (MRKHS) and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The study sample comprised 11 participants with CAIS, 49 with MRKHS, and 55 with PCOS. Gender identity was assessed by means of a multidimensional instrument, which showed significant differences between the CAIS group and the XX-chromosomal women. Other-than-female gender roles and neither-female-nor-male sexes/genders were reported only by individuals with CAIS. The percentage with a not exclusively androphile sexual orientation was unexceptionally high in the CAIS group compared to the prevalence in "normative" women and the clinical groups. The findings support the assumption made by Meyer-Bahlburg ( 2010 ) that gender outcome in people with CAIS is more variable than generally stated. Parents and professionals should thus be open to courses of gender development other than typically female in individuals with CAIS.

    Cao, Yang; White, Howard D; Li, Xiang-Dong

    2014-01-21

    The class XX myosin is a member of the diverse myosin superfamily and exists in insects and several lower invertebrates. DmMyo20, the class XX myosin in Drosophila, is encoded by dachs, which functions as a crucial downstream component of the Fat signaling pathway, influencing growth, affinity, and gene expression during development. Sequence analysis shows that DmMyo20 contains a unique N-terminal extension, the motor domain, followed by one IQ motif, and a C-terminal tail. To investigate the biochemical properties of DmMyo20, we expressed several DmMyo20 truncated constructs containing the motor domain in the baculovirus/Sf9 system. We found that the motor domain of DmMyo20 had neither ATPase activity nor the ability to bind to ATP, suggesting that DmMyo20 does not function as a molecular motor. We found that the motor domain of DmMyo20 could specifically bind to actin filaments in an ATP-independent manner and enhance the interaction between actin filaments and Zyx102, a downstream component of DmMyo20 in the Fat signaling pathway. These results suggest that DmMyo20 functions as a scaffold protein, but not as a molecular motor, in a signaling pathway controlling cell differentiation.

I began to develop a holistic visual range of a school textbook.The visual tutorial series has been the subject of special study for many scientific disciplines. The overall goal of our research is to answer the question. What didactic features were inherent in visual range of textbooks for initial literacy in Russia in the second half of XIX - early XX century, why, how, and how they changed. In this article, we will focus on the issue of allocation of structural components of the visual range of the spectrum and the functions they perform.Offering a model of this analysis, we relied on the development problems of the textbook functions V.

    Full Text Available En este texto se exponen los estudios realizados sobre ancianos mesoamericanos y, en particular, sobre las mujeres mayas prehispánicas, a lo largo del siglo XX y principios del XXI, en el campo de la Historia, Arqueología, Antropología, Epigrafía e Iconografía, desde una perspectiva de edad y género y yendo de lo general a lo concreto. De este modo se verá que los dioses, sus aspectos y funciones, han recibido un tratamiento prioritario al ser el objeto principal de las fuentes, dejándose de lado a los ancianos reales y los temas prosaicos. Las más desfavorecidas han sido las mujeres, de las que sólo se destaca su labor como parteras, curanderas, etc. y su faceta sobrenatural. Finalmente, el conocimiento que se tiene de unos y de otras se desprende de la comparación con sus homólogas divinas.In the following text I will explain the studies done in relation to eldery mesoamerican people, particularly prehispanic Mayan women, all through the 20th century to the beginning of the 21st century in the fields of History, Archaeology, Anthropology, Epigraphy, and Iconography, seen from the point of view of age and gender, and parting from the general to specifics. In this manner, we will see that the gods, their appearance, and their functions have received privileged treatment in these sources, leaving aside the real elders, and prosaic topics. Women have received the least favourable treatment, being only their work as midwives and healers, and their link to the supernatural what has been noticed. Finally, the knowlege that we have about women and men is the result of the comparison with their gods.

    Full Text Available El tráfico aéreo de pasajeros ha conocido en España durante los últimos treinta años un aumento espectacular; pasa de 26,8 millones a 116,3. Igualmente se ha modificado sustancialmente su composición; así, los viajeros interiores en 1970 eran el 46,26 % mientras que en el último año de referencia descendían al 40,88 %. Por su parte la proporción de los que emplearon vuelos regulares, han evolucionado del 59,80 % al 69,32 %, entre esas dos fechas, respectivamente. Todo ello confirma, aparte de su notable ascenso, una evolución profunda, hacia su mayor madurez. La concentración del tráfico de pasajeros en un número reducido de aeropuertos no ha cambiado. Los 16 mayores, sumaban en los primeros años setenta el 96,69 % del total, en tanto que en 1998 esa cifra era casi similar, 93,94 %. Sin embargo, se advierten ciertas alteraciones en la jerarquía de los principales aeropuertos españoles en ese tiempo; a la vez que se acentúa la disimilitud jerárquica de los mismos: unos pocos, los primeros, suman los mayores movimientos, frente a otros muchos que registran tráficos muy débiles. Se analizan las causas que han originado los cambios más significativos. También se aborda el estudio de la estructura y el funcionamiento de la red aeroportuaria española en estos años finales del siglo XX, comprobando cuál es su relación con el sistema urbano español

    Full Text Available A partir de algunas fases de la teoría de Rostow que exploran la relación entre industrialización, urbanización y desarrollo, se busca ilustrar cómo el desbalance de la urbanización con respecto al aparato productivo explica en parte el despegue sin madurez de América Latina en el siglo XX. Para ello se incorporan otros aspectos políticos y sociales dentro de una periodización que se inicia cuando Latinoamérica comenzó a evidenciar una significativa urbanización. Esta apuesta panorámica se hace desde la premisa historiográfica y metodológica de que los estudios de urbanización y desarrollo han perdido la perspectiva histórica, por lo que hace falta retomar una posición panorámica y comparativa, tanto en términos históricos como territoriales.On the basis of some phases of Rostow's theory that explore the relationship between industrialization, urbanization anddevelopment, this article aims at illustrating how the imbalance between urbanization and theproductive system helps to explain the issue ofLatin America's take-out throughout the twentieth century, lacking the ensuing drive to maturity. For that purpose, other political and social aspects are incorporated into a periodization that has to be initiated at the phase when Latin América started to evince a signijicant urbanization. Such a panoramic attempt is made from the historiographic and methodological premise that urbanization and development studies have often lost the historicalperspective. It is therefore necessary to resume a panoramic and, to some extent, comparative review, both in historical and territorial terms, in which a long-term periodization will be a possible contribution of this research.

    entonces en Valencia una demanda local de instrumentos que justificaba suficientemente su labor. Se han obtenido datos de cuatro fábricas de pianos que funcionaron entre 1830 y principios del siglo XX. Dicha documentación constata que los instrumentos valencianos construidos durante aquel período (1830-1915 obtuvieron gran aceptación tanto en el mercado interno como en el foráneo, y consiguieron prestigiosos galardones en exposiciones y muestras nacionales y extranjeras. También se ha facilitado el conocimiento de los sistemas de producción y comercialización de aquellos talleres, y de las características organológicas que poseyeron los pianos valencianos construidos en las diversas épocas; esa información ha ayudado a valorar la función económica y social que tuvo la fabricación valenciana de pianos en el siglo XIX y ha permitido su comparación con la desarrollada en otras provincias españolas durante la misma época.

    2015-01-01

    The basic observational properties of the 'coronal partings'--the special type of the coronal magnetic structures, identified by a comparison of the coronal X-ray images and solar magnetograms--are considered. They represent channels inside the unipolar large-scale magnetic fields, formed by the rows of magnetic arcs directed to the neighboring fields of opposite polarity. The most important characteristics of the partings are revealed. It is found that--from the evolutionary and spatial point of view--the partings can transform to the coronal holes and visa versa. The classes of global, intersecting, and complex partings are identified.

    Traditionally, probabilistic risk assessments (PRAS) of severe accidents in nuclear power plants have considered initiating events potentially occurring only during full power operation. Recent studies and operational experience have, however, implied that accidents during low power and shutdown could be significant contributors to risk. In response to this concern, in 1989 the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) initiated an extensive program to carefully examine the potential risks during low power and shutdown operations. Two plants, Surry (pressurized water reactor) and Grand Gulf (boiling water reactor), were selected as the plants to be studied. The program consists of two parallel projects being performed by Brookhaven National Laboratory (Surry) and Sandia National Laboratories (Grand Gulf). The program objectives include assessing the risks of severe accidents initiated during plant operational states other than full power operation and comparing the estimated risks with the risk associated with accidents initiated during full power operation as assessed in NUREG-1150. The scope of the program is that of a Level-3 PRA. The subject of this report is the PRA of the Grand Gulf Nuclear Station, Unit 1. The Grand Gulf plant utilizes a 3833 MWt BUR-6 boiling water reactor housed in a Mark III containment. The Grand Gulf plant is located near Port Gibson, Mississippi. The regime of shutdown analyzed in this study was plant operational state (POS) 5 during a refueling outage, which is approximately Cold Shutdown as defined by Grand Gulf Technical Specifications. The entire PRA of POS 5 is documented in a multi-volume NUREG report (NUREG/CR-6143). The internal events accident sequence analysis (Level 1) is documented in Volume 2. The Level 1 internal fire and internal flood analyses are documented in Vols 3 and 4, respectively.

    During 1989, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) initiated an extensive program to carefully examine the potential risks during low power and shutdown operations. The program includes two parallel projects being performed by Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL). Two plants, Surry (pressurized water reactor) and Grand Gulf (boiling water reactor), were selected as the plants to be studied. The objectives of the program are to assess the risks of severe accidents initiated during plant operational states other than full power operation and to compare the estimated core damage frequencies, important accident sequences and other qualitative and quantitative results with those accidents initiated during full power operation as assessed in NUREG-1150. The scope of the program includes that of a level-3 PRA. A phased approach was used in the level-1 program. In phase 1 which was completed in Fall 1991, a coarse screening analysis including internal fire and flood was performed for all plant operational states (POSs). The objective of the phase 1 study was to identify potential vulnerable plant configurations, to characterize (on a high, medium, or low basis) the potential core damage accident scenarios, and to provide a foundation for a detailed phase 2 analysis. In phase 2, mid-loop operation was selected as the plant configuration to be analyzed based on the results of the phase 1 study. The objective of the phase 2 study is to perform a detailed analysis of the potential accident scenarios that may occur during mid-loop operation, and compare the results with those of NUREG-1150. The results of the phase 2 level 2/3 study are the subject of this volume of NUREG/CR-6144, Volume 6.

    The objectives of the ARCAL XX Project: 'Guidelines on Control of Radiation Sources' (1997-2000) were to elaborate several documents, product of the regional experience that has had great utility for Regulatory Authorities and radiation ionizing users. Some of these documents contain Radiological Safety Requirements, Guide for Authorisation Application and Inspections Procedures. The implementation of these guidelines will improve the effectiveness of regulatory control of radiation sources in Peru by Regulatory Authority (IPEN) and the radiological protection in aspects of occupational, medical, public and potential exposure. This document presents the experience in the development of these guidelines and their contribution for elaborating national regulations for use of industrial radiography.

  16. La derecha radical española y el pensamiento antiliberal francés en el primer tercio del siglo XX. De charles Maurras a Georges Valois

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available El objeto de este ensayo sobre la derecha radical española es analizar la vía emprendida por el conservadurismo español desde su adhesión a un liberalismo oligárquico, característico de comienzos del siglo XX, a la formación de una derecha antiliberal que culmina en el fascismo durante la segunda república. En este camino hacia posiciones antidemocráticas, corporativas y autoritarias jugará un papel fundamental la recepción del pensamiento antiliberal francés desde el neotradicionalismo de acción Francesa hasta los movimientos fascistas impulsados por Georges Valois y continuados por alguno de sus discípulos en años posteriores. La relación entre ese pensamiento antiliberal de raíz francesa y la evolución fascistizante de la derecha española será el núcleo central de este trabajo. El artículo se estructura en tres grandes partes: en la primera estudiamos los orígenes del pensamiento antiliberal europeo a partir de dos aspectos fundamentales: 1. la crisis de la conciencia europea a finales del siglo XIX que se tradujo en la aparición de un conjunto de elementos ideológicos antiliberales, nacionalistas y corporativos entre los grupos conservadores de Europa, caldo de cultivo de un pensamiento de derecha radical que culminaría con los fascismos. 2. la Primera Guerra mundial y sus consecuencias que engendraron un mundo nuevo polarizado alrededor del bolchevismo y el fascismo. El pensamiento antiliberal, nacionalista, antidemocrático y corporativo se extiende por toda Europa e impregna de diversas maneras a los grupos conservadores europeos empujándoles a posiciones cada vez más autoritarias y dictatoriales, proceso que algunos historiadores han denominado la «fascistización» de la derecha europea. En segundo lugar, analizamos la formación de la derecha radical española desde sus inicios a comienzos del siglo xx hasta la dictadura de miguel Primo de rivera haciendo hincapié en la contribución del pensamiento
