The “In-Between” Intercultural Knowledge Production: A Case Study from the Teacher Training Kaingang Ethnicity in Southern Brazil  [PDF]
Miguel Ângelo Silva da Costa, Luci dos Santos Bernardi, Leonel Piovezana, Luzane Mores Bernardi
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.522217
Abstract: As a reflection of an ongoing research project, whose wider scope of analysis focuses in the expectations and produced stares about indigenous education by students of Kaingang ethnicity enrolled in Graduation Bachelor Courses in Indigenous Intercultural Pedagogy, Mathematics and Sciences of Nature, all three offered by the Universidade Comunitária da Regi?o de Chapecó (Unochapecó), this study problematizes to what extend the intercultural knowledge acquired over the training process of Kaingang indigenous teachers may be converted into reflections focused on their conceptions of education, (re) signification of their identity and autonomy within a context of an intense multiculturalism emergence as well as cultural hybridism, which characterize contemporaneity. The results indicate that, for those students, the intercultural knowledge may be triggering as an instrument of changes, inside and outside their communities; it strengthens and nourishes the debate around the role of formal education, the school and the indigenous teacher as a mediator between worldviews and cultures, in constant confluence.

Abstract: this paper indicates the environmental issues that must necessarily be approached, in brazil, in a near future (2022). a study was made on some aspects of the effects of deforestation and global climate change. a temperature rise around 0,78% has been observed during period of 1917 and 2003 in the piracicaba region. for the amazon region a rise of 0,56% was observed the 20th century. the existing information indicates that not only deforestation but also global climate changes act upon temperature rise. deforestation has direct influence in precipitation decrease. the consequences of global climate change are still unknown, being that some models indicate a precipitation rise and others a decrease. deforestation also provokes great biodiversity loss, estimated between 8.000 to 34.000 species, considering that deforestation raises 1% per year.

Abstract: NESTE trabalho, s o indicados os principais temas ambientais para o Brasil, num futuro próximo (2022). Impactos do aumento da temperatura s o estudados através de cenários, que podem modificar o balan o hídrico em algumas regi es, tendo sido observado um aumento da ordem de 0,78oC no período de 1917 a 2003, na regi o de Piracicaba. Para a regi o amaz nica, foi observado um aumento de 0,56oC durante o século XX. Tanto o desmatamento quanto as Mudan as Climáticas Globais atuam na dire o de um aumento da temperatura, enquanto o desmatamento influi na dire o de uma diminui o das precipita es. O desmatamento provoca, ainda, uma grande perda de biodiversidade, sendo estimadas em uma perda entre 8.000 até 34.000 espécies, considerando-se que o desmatamento aumenta em 1% ao ano.
Selective stimulation of catecholamine release from bovine adrenal chromaffin cells by an ionotropic purinergic receptor sensitive to 2-methylthio ATP

BMC Neuroscience , 2007, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2202-8-41
Abstract: ATP raised the [Ca2+]i in ~50% of the cells. Removing extracellular Ca2+ suppressed the [Ca2+]i-raising ability of 2-MeSATP, observed in ~40% of the ATP-sensitive cells. This indicates that 2-MeSATP behaves as a specific ionotropic purinoceptor agonist in bovine chromaffin cells. The 2-MeSATP-induced [Ca2+]i-rises were suppressed by PPADS. UTP raised the [Ca2+]i in ~40% of the ATP-sensitive cells, indicating that these expressed Ca2+-mobilizing P2Y receptors. UTP-sensitive receptors may not be the only P2Y receptors present, as suggested by the observation that ~20% of the ATP-sensitive pool did not respond to either 2-MeSATP or UTP. The average sizes of the ATP- and 2-MeSATP-evoked [Ca2+]i responses were identical in UTP-insensitive cells. 2-MeSATP stimulated Ca2+ influx and evoked catecholamine release, whereas UTP elicited Ca2+ release from intracellular stores but did not evoke secretion. 2-MeSATP-induced secretion was strongly inhibited by Cd2+ and suppressed by extracellular Ca2+ or Na+ removal. TTX inhibited 2-MeSATP-evoked secretion by ~20%.2-MeSATP is a specific P2X purinoceptor agonist and a potent secretagogue in bovine chromaffin cells. Activation of 2-MeSATP-sensitive receptors stimulates Ca2+ influx mainly via voltage-sensitive Ca2+ channels. For the most part, these are activated by the depolarization brought about by Na+ influx across P2X receptor pores.Extracellular ATP plays an important role in catecholamine release from adrenal chromaffin cells, either facilitating cholinergic stimulation via ionotropic (P2X) purinoceptors or inhibiting evoked release through a delayed action on metabotropic (P2Y) purinoceptors (see [1] and references therein). The latter may provide the basis for an auto-inhibitory feedback loop involving both autocrine and paracrine interactions. There are at least seven P2X receptor subunits encoded by distinct genes, which may form homo- or heterotrimeric ionotropic purinoceptors; functional P2X receptors are Ca2+-permeable a
Functional distribution of Ca2+-coupled P2 purinergic receptors among adrenergic and noradrenergic bovine adrenal chromaffin cells

Abstract: The [Ca2+]i and the [Na+]i were recorded from immunolabeled bovine chromaffin cells by single-cell fluorescence imaging. Among the ATP-sensitive cells ~40% did not yield [Ca2+]i responses to ATP in the absence of extracellular Ca2+ (Ca2+o), indicating that they expressed P2X receptors and did not express Ca2+- mobilizing P2Y receptors; the remainder expressed Ca2+-mobilizing P2Y receptors. Relative to AD-cells approximately twice as many NA-cells expressed P2X receptors while not expressing Ca2+- mobilizing P2Y receptors, as indicated by the proportion of cells lacking [Ca2+]i responses and exhibiting [Na+]i responses to ATP in the absence and presence of Ca2+o, respectively. The density of P2X receptors in NA-cells appeared to be 30–50% larger, as suggested by comparing the average size of the [Na+]i and [Ca2+]i responses to ATP. Conversely, approximately twice as many AD-cells expressed Ca2+-mobilizing P2Y receptors, and they appeared to exhibit a higher (~20%) receptor density. UTP raised the [Ca2+]i in a fraction of the cells and did not raise the [Na+]i in any of the cells tested, confirming its specificity as a P2Y agonist. The cell density of UTP-sensitive P2Y receptors did not appear to vary among AD- and NA-cells.Although neither of the major purinoceptor types can be ascribed to a particular cell phenotype, P2X and Ca2+-mobilizing P2Y receptors are preferentially located to noradrenergic and adrenergic chromaffin cells, respectively. ATP might, in addition to an UTP-sensitive P2Y receptor, activate an UTP-insensitive P2Y receptor subtype. A model for a short-loop feedback interaction is presented whereby locally released ATP acts upon P2Y receptors in adrenergic cells, inhibiting Ca2+ influx and contributing to terminate evoked epinephrine secretion.Adrenal chromaffin cells secrete norepinephrine and the stress-related hormone epinephrine in response to acetylcholine output from splanchnic nerve terminals. Its function is modulated by other transmitters an

Abstract: unequal sex ratios lead to the loss of genetic variability, decreasing the viability of populations in the long term. anthropogenic activities often disturb the natural habitats and can cause alterations in sex ratio and morphological characteristics of several species. forest fragmentation is a major conservation concern, so that understanding its effects in natural populations is essential. in this study, we evaluated the sex ratio and the morphological characteristics of rufous gnateaters (conopophaga lineata (wied, 1831)) in small and large forest fragments in minas gerais, brazil. birds (n = 89) were sexed by plumage characteristics and molecular markers. the molecular analysis showed that plumage is not a totally reliable method for sexing rufous gnateaters. we observed that sex ratio did not differ between large and small forest fragments, but birds in small fragments had larger wings and tarsus. wing and tarsus changes may affect the movement ability of individuals within and among forest fragments. in conclusion, rufous gnateaters have been able to survive in both small and large atlantic rain forest fragments without altering their sex ratio, but morphological changes can be prejudicial to their long term survival.
