Raman Arora,Avril Dias
Online Journal of Health & Allied Sciences , 2007,
Abstract: There is a low papillary to follicular ratio in iodine deficient areas. A study of malignant thyroid tumors done over a period of 4 years in Goa shows that the ratio of papillary to follicular carcinoma in Goa conforms to a iodine deficient status of the population.
Medical emergencies in Goa  [cached]
Saddichha Sahoo,Saxena Mukul
Indian Journal of Community Medicine , 2010,
Abstract: Background: Most emergencies in Goa arise due to road traffic accidents and drowning, which have been compounded by the rise in number of recorded accidents in 2007 to be above 4000. It is believed that 11 people meet with an accident on Goa′s roads every day and this is expected to rise by 10% by next year. Similar is the case with drownings and other medical emergencies. We therefore aimed to conduct a cross-sectional survey of medical emergencies and identify various types of emergencies presenting to emergency departments. Materials and Methods: Using a stratified random sampling design, all emergencies presenting to the three government hospitals in Goa, which handle 90% of all emergencies currently, were studied on specially designed data sheets in order to collect data. Emergency medical technicians (ETs) were placed in the Casualty Ward of the medical colleges and they recorded all emergencies on the data sheet. The collected data were then analyzed for stratification and mapping of emergencies. Results: GMC Hospital attended to majority of emergencies (62%), which were mainly of the nature of accidents or assaults (17%) and fever related (17%). Most emergencies were noncritical and about 1% expired. Maximum emergencies also presented from Salcette and Bardez, and occurred among young males in the age group of 19-45 years. Males were also more prone to accidents while females had pregnancies as emergencies. Conclusion: Potential emergency services need to target young males with higher concentrations required in Salcette in South Goa and Bardez in North Goa.
Gaspar Becerra en Florencia
Salort Pons, Salvador
Archivo Espa?ol de Arte , 2005,
Abstract: Muy poco sabemos aún de la vida y obra de Gaspar Becerra en Italia, país en el que transcurrió gran parte de su formación como artista, primero a las órdenes de Giorgio Vasari y, más tarde, a las de Daniele de Volterra. Su colaboración en las decoraciones al fresco de la Sala dei Cento Giorni en el Palacio de la Cancillería y en la capilla de la Rovere en la iglesia de la Trinidad de los Montes, en los talleres de los mencionados Vasari y Volterra respectivamente, a pesar de no haber sido nunca documentadas, son aceptadas por gran parte de la crítica. La presencia de Becerra en Roma venía simplemente probada por sus participaciones en las reuniones de la Congregación de San Lucas, así como por la realización de una custodia, y sólo recientemente Gonzalo Redín ha conseguido perfilar parte de las actividades artísticas del maestro en la Urbe, documentando varias de sus obras…

Nuevo mundo - Mundos Nuevos , 2007, DOI: 10.4000/nuevomundo.3406
Abstract: Carte de l’Inde Goa. Le nom évoque les plages mythiques et les hippies qui, dans les années 70, en avaient fait leur Eden. Aujourd’hui la déferlante touristique, tant occidentale qu’indienne – les stars de Bollywood s’y retrouvent –, a envahi ce lieu paradisiaque tout comme les amateurs de raves techno. Sur plus d’une centaine de kilomètres du nord au sud se déroulent d’immenses plages au sable fin, bordées de cocotiers. Délimité à l'ouest par l’océan Indien et à l'est par la cha ne montag...

Abstract: Traditional salt farming in Goa, India has been practised for the past 1,500 years by a few communities. Goa’s riverine estuaries, easy access to sea water and favourable climatic conditions makes salt production attractive during summer. Salt produced through this natural evaporation process also played an important role in the economy of Goa even during the Portuguese rule as salt was the chief export commodity. In the past there were 36 villages involved in salt production, which is now reduced to 9. Low income, lack of skilled labour, competition from industrially produced salt, losses incurred on the yearly damage of embankments are the major reasons responsible for the reduction in the number of salt pans. Salt pans (Mithagar or Mithache agor) form a part of the reclaimed waterlogged khazan lands, which are also utilised for aquaculture, pisciculture and agriculture. Salt pans in Goa experience three phases namely, the ceased phase during monsoon period of June to October, preparatory phase from December to January, and salt harvesting phase, from February to June. After the monsoons, the salt pans are prepared manually for salt production. During high tide, an influx of sea water occurs, which enters the reservoir pans through sluice gates. The sea water after 1–2 days on attaining a salinity of approximately 5oBé, is released into the evaporator pans and kept till it attains a salinity of 23 - 25oBé. The brine is then released to crystallizer pans, where the salt crystallises out 25 - 27oBé and is then harvested. Salt pans form a unique ecosystem where succession of different organisms with varying environmental conditions occurs. Organisms ranging from bacteria, archaea to fungi, algae, etc., are known to colonise salt pans and may influence the quality of salt produced. The aim of this review is to describe salt farming in Goa’s history, importance of salt production as a community activity, traditional method of salt production and the biota associated with salt pans.
Cnidarian from the Coast of Goa – Identified to the Species Level  [PDF]
J. Mythili Krishna,A. Gophane
Journal of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry , 2013,
Abstract: Cnidaria represents a phylum of marine organisms consisting of colony forming aquatic (mostly marine) animals which have a rich potential as a source of drugs and therapeutic agents. One such organism which has gained importance in the contemporary times is zoanthid. There is a growing interest in ascertaining their taxonomic diversity using a combination of molecular, morphological and histological techniques. The unusual life style, symbiotic photosysthesis, ability to form colonies with polyps and the marine niche which they occupy make them a very interesting organism for research. There are many reports of toxicological properties as well as characterization of the methanolic extract of Zooanthids from Indian ocean. However, there is very little work on systematics of these organisms. We report isolation and identification of this soft coral from the intertidal rocky shore of Anjuna (Goa) following standard protocols of morphological, histological and molecular analyses.

Abstract: Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises plays a pivotal role in the economic development of our country. Just like farmers are the backbone of Indian Agriculture, our MSME's are the chlorophyll for the photosynthesis of industrialization. With the introduction of MSMED Act 2006 with effect from 2nd October, 2006, a huge disparity has been created. There is now a new benchmark of Micro-Micro, Micro- small, Smallmedium industries. This essentially means that there should be a different approach in tackling the problem of the same sector, which is largely diverse. The liberalization has brought a sea change in the attitudes, values and behavior of the customers who has little consideration for the home made goods. Goa the land of sun, sea and sand is no exception to this. An attempt has been made in this paper to identify MSEM level tribulation in Goa. These tribulations are many and have been changing as per the nature of situation, product, locations, economy … and many others. This paper highlights some identified issue of MSMEs makeover of Tribulations, recurring emerging tribulations, rehabilitations of MSMEs and finally giving some few solutions for the rehabilitations and modernizations using modernization fund.
