La delincuencia juvenil: fenómeno de la sociedad actual
René Alejandro Jiménez Ornelas
Papeles de población , 2005,
Abstract: La violencia no es producida aleatoriamente, sino que parte de una cultura de conflictos familiares, sociales, económicos y políticos, y en general, del sistema globalizado que a su vez permea las diferentes formas de vida en la sociedad, donde los estilos de vida de los jóvenes son catalogados como formas de delincuencia. El objetivo de esos estilos de vida, sin embargo, sólo consiste en distanciarse culturalmente de una sociedad que los jóvenes no han fabricado. Víctimas de la discriminación social y excluidos de las decisiones importantes, muchos jóvenes carecen de planes o proyectos de vida, y son considerados incapaces de adaptarse al medio social, por lo cual toman la delincuencia como alternativa de sobrevivencia. El fácil acceso a las drogas, la falta de oportunidades de empleo, salud, educación y espacios para la cultura y el deporte, la desintegración familiar, la impunidad, entre otros factores, componen el contexto en el que nace y crece la juventud mexicana del siglo XXI.

RM Mordi, CE Okaka
International Journal of Health Research , 2009,
Abstract: Purpose: To determine the prevalence and factors responsible for the spread of intestinal parasites in Edo State and suggest strategies for their control. Methods: This prospective and cross sectional study involved 3601 (798 males, 1002 females and 1801 children) selected randomly from the 18 local government areas of Edo State. Stool samples collected from the selected participants were analysed using standard techniques. Using a structured questionnaire, factors which disposed to increase in the prevalence of intestinal parasites were investigated between April 2007 and March 2008. Results: High prevalence (11.3%) of intestinal parasites was recorded in the study. Those drinking well water had the highest prevalence, followed by those who used tap water and least among people who used borehole water. Infection rate was higher in children who lived in bushy surrounding and lower in children who lived in marshy surrounding. The highest infection rate of 10% was observed in chldren who lived in environments where refuse was indiscriminately disposed and lowest (2.5%) in adult males who inhabited environments where refuse was collected in dust bins. Children who ate outside their homes and with unwashed hands were more likely to be infected than adult males who ate at home. Conclusion: There was high prevalence of parasitic infections in the State. Factors including water source, environment, method of refuse disposal, feeding pattern, sewage disposal, socio-economic status and cultural habits were identified to be contributing to parasitic infection.

El principio de legalidad en el ámbito penitenciario  [cached]
Ricardo M. Mata y Martín
Derecho Penal y Criminología , 2011,
Abstract: El principio de legalidad, como eje vertebrador de todo el sistema penal, despliega sus efectos también en el ámbito penitenciario. El genérico principio de legalidad en materia penal incluye la llamada garantía penitenciaria o ejecutiva, que se suma a las garantías criminal, penal y jurisdiccional; esta se corresponde con la fase de ejecución de las condenas privativas de libertad impuestas a los autores de hechos delictivos. El trabajo que sigue pretende determinar de forma más precisa las consecuencias de la aplicación del principio de legalidad al sistema de ejecución de las penas privativas de libertad, así como analizar algunas de ellas. En este sentido, se quieren se alar los presupuestos del principio, su recogida normativa en el sistema jurídico espa ol, las consecuencias fundamentales que para el cumplimiento de las penas privativas de libertad trae el principio de legalidad, así como algunas particulares consideraciones respecto a su aplicación en el sistema penitenciario vigente.
Eros y la cabellera femenina  [cached]
Patricia Aristizábal Montes
El Hombre y la Máquina , 2007,
Abstract: Las siguientes líneas ofrecen un sugestivo tratamiento del erotismo fundado en la cabellera femenina. El ofrecimiento, o en su defecto la negación del misterio erótico de la mujer dispuesto en la profusión, el color, la consistencia de la cabellera, tiene en el arte, en la literatura y en la vida cotidiana infi nitos momentos que han sido bellamente recreados por los artistas y escritores. La fuente teórica de la exposición es el libro La cabellera femenina, un diálogo entre poesía y pintura (1994), de la ensayista Erika Bornay.
Freud y la sexualidad femenina.
Francisco Pere?a García
Revista de la Asociación Espa?ola de Neuropsiquiatría , 1981,
Abstract: Nuestro propósito es realizar un somero análisis de la cuestión o enigma (de ambas formas suele referirse la tradición psicoanalítica al tema) de la sexualidad femenina en la obra de FREUD. Y nos limitamos a los textos que plantean concretamente, y en el seno del despliegue del complejo de Edipo, el problema.

Abstract: En este trabajo se aborda la problemática del acceso a la educación y a la información con la que cuentan los internos del Servicio Penitenciario Federal Argentino. Se analiza cuál es el sentido que le otorgan los internos a su educación en el contexto carcelario y de qué manera utilizan estos recursos en su existencia precaria en la institución carcelaria This paper is about the access to education and information available for the prisoners of the Argentine penitentiary system. We discuss the meaning that prisoners give to education in the particular context of a jail and how these resources are used by the prisoners in their precarious life there.
Determinants of Rural Development in Edo State, Nigeria: An Overview
OS Ogunleye, J Amen
African Research Review , 2010,
Abstract: About 70% of the total population in Nigeria lives in the rural areas, while half of this population is without proper-formal education (World Bank 2005). Data for this study which is on the Determinants of rural Development in Edo State, Nigeria were collected through the primary and secondary sources. Primary data were collected through the random administration of (250) questionnaires on respondents in five selected rural communities in Edo State. Simple percentage was used to analyze data. Results from this study show that good transportation system, increase in grants and revenue allocation, provision of infrastructural facilities, quality education, quality housing, employment opportunities and provision of micro credit scheme are impetus to the development of rural communities. The study further recommends that government should pay more attention to the economic and infrastructural development of rural communities; government should see rural areas as potential ports for economic and socio-cultural development of the nation and not as a burden, so as to bridge the gap between rural and urban environments.
Evaluation of the Thermal Conductivity of Soils in Edo State, Nigeria
W.A. Molindo,O.M. Alile
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2007,
Abstract: Investigations were conducted to evaluate the thermal conductivity of soils of Sedimentary rock origin in two locations namely; Obaretin in Ikpoba/Okha and Idumabi-Irrua in Esan Central Local Government Areas respectively in Edo State, Nigeria. The study was aimed at validating the effects of the thermal regimes of these soils and their relation to soil productivity. The investigation showed that soil conductivity is related to temperature factors such as soil resistance and resistivity that controls the processes involved in the production and plant growth. The investigation showed that soil thermal conductivity is related to temperature and solar radiation factors such as soil resistance and resistivity, that control the processes involved in plant growth and productivity with accompanied macro and micro fauna in soils. Functional activities of plant roots such as absorption of water and nutrients are encouraged at low or high soil thermal conductivity levels. In this study, there were significant (p = 0.05) differences in thermal conductivity in the soils of both locations. Similarly soil resistance and resistivity were significantly different (p = 0.05) in the two locations (Obaretin and Idumabi Irrua) in Ikpoba-Okha and Esan Central Local Government Area, Edo State, Nigeria. This study indicates attributes of temperature changes in soil regimes, reflecting the difference in vegetation obtained in the two locations. Therefore soil productivity and plant growth is influenced by soil thermal conductivity and it’s related factors such as soil resistance and resistivity.
Forest regeneration, dereservation and management in Edo State, Nigeria
JE Ehiagbonare
African Journal of Biotechnology , 2008,
Abstract: In Edo State, Nigeria, forest dereservation is increasing, regeneration is neglected and management is not able to cope with the problem due to inadequate staffing and other logistics. The review therefore concluded that the role of the forests which cut across many areas of human endeavour seem not to be appreciated enough by the populace. Forest regeneration after harvest or deforestation is thus neglected. As a consequence the endemic forest species are faced with possible extinction. Enlightenment campaigns to educate the populace on the values of the forests and intensified efforts on national tree planting as an annual event are suggested. Furthermore, very serious commitment on the part of government to ensure adequate funding of forest regeneration, abrogation of forest dereservation, increased forest reservation and sustainable management of the forests are recommended.
