Discovery and photometry of the binary-lensing caustic-crossing event EROS-BLG-2000-5
C. Afonso
Physics , 2003,
Abstract: The EROS collaboration has developed a real time alert system, which was operational in 1999 and 2000. A very long binary-lensing caustic crossing event, EROS-BLG-2000-5, was found in the 2000 season and monitored by EROS. EROS photometric data for this event are presented. The data are well fitted by the model of An et al. 2002 based on a completely different dataset. However, parameters of the model such as the mass ratio or the binary rotation rate are not very well constrained by EROS data.
Photometric Constraints on Microlens Spectroscopy of EROS-BLG-2000-5
C. Afonso
Physics , 2001, DOI: 10.1051/0004-6361:20011204
Abstract: We apply EROS photometric data to interpret previously published Keck and VLT spectra of the binary-microlens caustic-crossing event EROS-BLG-2000-5. We show that the VLT data imply that the outer 4 % of the limb of the K3-giant source is strongly in emission in Halpha, in contradiction to available models of the photosphere. This conflict could be resolved if the integrated Halpha emission from the chromosphere were equal to 8 % of the integrated Halpha absorption from the source as a whole. These conclusions regarding the extreme limb are almost completely model-independent. We also present a general method for using the photometric data to facilitate direct comparison between the atmospheric model and the spectroscopic data. While this method has some model-dependent features, it is fairly robust and can serve to guide the analysis of spectra while more detailed models of the lens geometry are being developed. In addition, we find that the color of the limb of the source (outer 5.5 % by radius) is Delta(V-I) = 0.37 redder than the source as a whole, so that it has the color of a M0 giant.
Eros variable stars: A catalog of Cepheids in the Magellanic Clouds
C. Afonso
Physics , 1999,
Abstract: We present a catalog containing 290 LMC and 590 SMC Cepheids which have been obtained using the two 4k $\times$ 8k CCD cameras of the EROS~2 microlensing survey. The Cepheids were selected from 1,134,000 and 504,000 stars in the central regions of the LMC and SMC respectively, that were monitored over 150 nights between October 1996 and February 1997, at a rate of one measurement every night. For each Cepheid the light curves, period, magnitudes in the EROS~2 filter system, Fourier coefficients, J2000 coordinates and cross-identifications with objects referenced in the CDS Simbad database are presented. Finding charts of identified Cepheids in clusters NGC 1943, NGC 1958 and Bruck 56 are presented. The catalogue and the individual light--curves will be electronically available through the CDS (Strasbourg).

Abstract: background: in the last decades an overwhelming increase in the incidence of esophagogastric transition adenocarcinomas has been observed. jointly to this increase, there has also been progress in minimal invasive surgery. aim: to relate the experience with video-assisted esophagectomy, transhiatal for the treatment of esophagogastric transition adenocarcinoma. methods: the technique was indicated to 30 patients, predominantly male (73%) with an average age of 55 years. after laparoscopic evaluation, 19 patients were operated on using the video-assisted technique. results: surgical time varied between 4 and 5 hours. toracic drains had to be applied in 12 patients (63%). two (10,5%) had cervical anastomosis fistulas. one death occurred due to intratoracic fistula in the clamp line. excluding this patient, post-operative state demonstrated three (16,7%) patients in stage i, two (11%) in stage iia, three (16,7%) in iib, six (33,3%) in iii and four (22,2%) in stage iv. the overall life span was an average of 25,5 months (three to 105 months), and when categorized into stages, it reached 53,3 months up to stage iia and 15,8 months in stage iib or higher. conclusion: minimal invasive surgery can be an alternative in the treatment of esophagogastric transition adenocarcinoma.

Abstract: data from the international bone marrow transplant registry (ibmtr) contribute for the improvement of bone marrow transplant (bmt) worldwide. we studied the brazilian experience in bmt for aml to compare this with international data. we performed a retrospective study by sending questionnaires to 16 bmt centers regarding clinical and treatment variables. statistical analyses concerning autologous bmt (autobmt) and allogeneic bmt (allobmt) were performed using the kaplan-meier method and the log-rank test. all p-values were two-tailed. we collected data from 731 patients (205 autobmt and 526 allobmt). median overall survival (os) for autobmt patients was longer than allobmt patients (1035 vs. 466 days, p=0.0012). allobmt stem cell source (scs): 73% bone marrow stem cell (bmsc), 23% peripheral blood stem cells (pbsc) and 4% umbilical cord blood. among the autobmt patients, the scs was 63% pbsc, 22% bmsc and 15% both. the scs did not impact on os. there was no difference in os between different fab classifications in the allobmt group, but in the autobmt the m3 patients had longer survival. as expected, the main cause of mortality among autobmt patients was related to disease relapse (60%), while in the allobmt, to infection (38%). in both groups we found longer os in first complete remission (1cr) compared to second (2cr) and other (p<0.0001), and longer os in de novo aml than in secondary. in the allobmt group we found more patients with advanced disease (60%), while in the autobmt group, we found more m3 patients (24%), which could explain the difference in os. most of our results are in accordance with ibmtr data. one should consider the fact that this is a retrospective study and our findings should be analysed with caution.
Music Therapy, Song and Communication
André Brandalise
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2009,
Abstract: The therapeutic relationship between therapist, client and music can also be considered as part of a communication system. Illness can seriously affect the functioning of this system in the music therapy process. The musical form song is used very often in therapeutic processes. It can be very efficient in the treatment. This article intends to make a reflection about the links between Music Therapy, Song and Communication.

Cartografia de solos à escala da explora??o agrícola: aplica??o a um ensaio de olival
Alexandre,C.; Afonso,T.;
Revista de Ciências Agrárias , 2007,
Abstract: this paper aims to show: (i) the limitations of the information available by the ?carta dos solos de portugal? for use at scales greater than 1:50.000, (ii) the importance of basic soil knowledge at farm scale as a main productivity factor, (iii) a case study for soil survey of an area of 35 ha, including 27 ha of an olive grove trial set up (?olival novo?), located on a farm of the ?direc??o regional de agricultura do alentejo? (lameir?es), eastern of moura. soil observations were based on a regular sampling at a scale of 1:7.500, using manual and mechanical probes for 55 and 24 sampling points, respectively. the studied area reveals great soils diversity ? 22 families of the ?classifica??o dos solos de portugal? (csp 1974), and 26 units of the world reference base for soil resources (wrbsr 2006) were identified. to get 50% of the mapped 35 ha is necessary to add up 5 csp families (bac, bc, vc', vcx, bca), or 5 wrbsr soil-units (vr.ha(ca), vr.ha(eu), rg.ha(ca), cm.vr(ca,cr), lv.ha(skp,cr) (see appendix for codes description). in spite of the low mapping scale used, the ?carta dos solos de portugal? (1:50.000) reflects the soil diversity on the study area identifying 8 soil families. however, the more abundant families referenced (sr, vc and vcm, respectively lv.ha(cr), rg.ha(ca) and lv.vr(cr)) do not match with those identified on this study (mainly bac, bc, vc' or vr.ha(ca), vr.ha(eu), cm.vr(ca,cr)). this difference suggests that the ?carta dos solos de portugal? underestimates the quality of some soil units of this area. although the majority of the soils in the "olival novo" area shows high cation exchange capacity (>20 cmol(+) kg-1), some of them also show one or more of the following limitations: compaction, water saturation, extremely calcareous (caco3>250 g kg-1), high ph (>8,5) and low levels of phosphorous (p2o5<50 mg kg-1). analyses of the future results of the ongoing olive trials should also take into account the effect of the spatial intersection betwe
