Use of licit and illicit drugs at the university of Alfenas
Fiorini Jo?o Evangelista,Alves Adriana Luiza,Ferreira Luciano Resende,Fiorini Celso Maia
Revista do Hospital das Clínicas , 2003,
Abstract: This paper reports the study of drug consumption carried out within the population of undergraduate students from 2 colleges of Alfenas, in the state of Minas Gerais state. Both licit and illicit drugs were studied, including alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, crack, inhalants, glue, tranquilizers, stimulants, and others. METHODOLOGY: The research included a wide bibliographical search and the application of a questionnaire to approximately 23% of the students (total of 6500 students). RESULTS: A total of 1500 students participated in this investigation. The results demonstrated that there was a significant consumption of both licit and illicit drugs. The pattern of drug consumption in the research sample was similar to other investigations conducted in Brazil and in other countries. DISCUSSION: It was observed that 55% of the university students use drugs. However, the most surprising finding was that most of the students (88%) answered "yes" to the inquiry, "Have you already tried any type of drug, including alcohol and cigarettes?" The students revealed that they had taken drugs even prior to the admission to the university. The results suggest clearly that the university environment does not necessarily represent the starting point for student drug consumption.

Open Journal of Genetics (OJGen) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojgen.2014.41002
Abstract:

DNA replication is a crucial process for species survival, nevertheless it is not clear which factors define origin selection in multicellular eukaryotes. Developmental gene amplification systems, such as the one described during ovarian follicles development in Drosophila melanogaster, are useful tools for studying of DNA replication process in these organisms. We previously described that the well characterized third chromosome amplified domain of D. melanogater displays three intrinsically bent DNA sites: b1, localized at an amplification control element (ACE3), b2 and b3, both localized at the preferential origin ori-β. This proposal aimed to construct a Drosophila transformation vector, which contains a short deletion at the ACE3, in order to reduce the intrinsically bent DNA site b1, and analyze the functional role of this site in the gene amplification process. Through a series of cloning steps, we obtained a Big Parent vector derivative, containing a deletion at the positions 176-

PRINCIPAL MOLECULAR THECNIQUES FOR DETECTING HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS
Emily Francini Silva Do Carmo1; Adriana Fiorini1
SaBios : Revista de Saúde e Biologia , 2007,
Abstract: Nowadays, there is a great concern with the development of HPV (Human Papillomavirus) virus infection diagnosis. HPV virushas been responsible for main sexually transmissible diseases of viral etiology and shows correlation with malignant processesand precursory lesions in uterine cervix. This research shows the main actually available techniques of molecular detection forHPV diagnosis, as PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction), Hybrid Capture and In Situ Hibridization, giving emphasis to PCR. It alsodiscusses about the sensibility of molecular assays as PCR and Real Time PCR for HPV detection in epithelial tissues beforethe occurrence of lesions or symptoms. This study has shown that PCR technique, when compared to other available detectiontests, has superior sensibility. This technique is also able to detect a reduced amount of samples and it allows the verification ofinfections by multiple virus subtypes, as well as the evaluation of oncogenic risk of viral infecting population.
Dal castrum altomedievale al restauro settecentesco: storia e archeologia del castello di Sorrivoli (Roncofreddo - FC)
Fiorini, Andrea
Arqueología de la Arquitectura , 2011,
Abstract: The methods and tools used to determine the history of construction and building techniques of the castle of Sorrivoli (Roncofreddo - FC) are here described. This is a research project carried out within a study coordinated by the teaching of Medieval Archaeology (University of Bologna), which has the purpose of conducting a census of all the medieval castles in Romagna. There is certain news from the tenth century concerning the castle to be studied. However, the investigations have shown that the standing preserved structures must be dated from the fourteenth century onwards. The system of photogrammetric survey of the walls and the technique of threedimensional modelling of the structures are here described. An extended part of this paper is also devoted to results of stratigraphic, typological, geological, metrological and comparative mensio-cronological analysis. No disponible
Three-dimensional recording in the archaeological excavation at the Bronze Age settlement of Mursia, Pantelleria. LA DOCUMENTAZIONE TRIDIMENSIONALE DELLO SCAVO ARCHEOLOGICO NELL’ABITATO DELL’ETà DEL BRONZO DI MURSIA, PANTELLERIA (TP)
Andrea Fiorini
IpoTESI di Preistoria , 2010,
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to describe methods of documentation and detection techniques used on the archaeological site of Mursia (Pantelleria, TP) in order to build three-dimensional models of a hut and a stone mortar. The software measures three-dimensional coordinates of a finite set of points on the object using two photographs taken from different positions (stereo pairs). In particular, we explore some technical aspects of data processing like quickness, measurement accuracy, information content of record and equipments cost. In questo contributo si descrivono i metodi e gli strumenti di rilievo impiegati nel sito archeologico di Mursia (Pantelleria – TP) per ottenere i modelli tridimensionali di una capanna e di un mortaio litico. Il software misura sull’oggetto le coordinate tridimensionali di un set finito di punti utilizzando due foto riprese da posizioni differenti (“stereocoppia”). Si approfondiscono, in particolare, alcuni aspetti di questa tecnica di rilievo: la rapidità (del procedimento), l’accuratezza (della misura), il contenuto informativo (della registrazione) e il costo (degli strumenti).
Nonsingular Promises from Born-Infeld Gravity
Franco Fiorini
Physics , 2013,
Abstract: Born-Infeld determinantal gravity formulated in Weitzenbock spacetime is discussed in the context of Friedmann-Robertson-Walker (FRW) cosmologies. It is shown how the standard model big bang singularity is absent in certain spatially flat FRW spacetimes, where the high energy regime is characterized by a de Sitter inflationary stage of geometrical character, i.e., without the presence of the inflaton field. This taming of the initial singularity is also achieved for some spatially curved FRW manifolds where the singularity is replaced by a de Sitter stage or a big bounce of the scale factor depending on certain combinations of free parameters appearing in the action. Unlike other Born-Infeld-like theories in vogue, the one here presented is also capable of deforming vacuum general relativistic solutions.
Top-Quark Physics Results From LHC
Luca Fiorini
Physics , 2012,
Abstract: The top-quark is a fundamental element of the physics program at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). We review the current status of the top-quark measurements performed by ATLAS and CMS experiments in pp collisions at sqrt(s)=7 TeV by presenting the recent results of the top-quark production rates, top mass measurements and additional top quark properties. We will also describe the recent searches for physics beyond the Standard Model in the top-quark sector.
