Globalization, Cultural Change and Religion: The Case of Pentecostalism  [PDF]
Alberto da Silva Moreira
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.24043
Abstract: The challenges faced by this paper are two folds: to understanding how cultural changes brought about by globalization can influence religions and, conversely, how religions can influence broader cultural change. Globalization has spread powerful cultural forms, such as international popular consumer culture, media culture and the culture of the individual. These cultural forms or horizons interact with and transform local cultures which are often intertwined with traditional religions. Throughout this process, traditional religion can weaken its potential to express local cultures, but can also become a vehicle used to express strategies of identity affirmation. Many modalities of globalization-compatible religion, like Pentecostalism, are also consistently penetrated by consumer culture, media culture and individualism. When they interact with traditional religion, they often function as a critical dissolving factor. Therefore, Pentecostalism and similar religions have themselves become active factors in (global) cultural change processes.
The Crisis of Religious Identity and Religious Landscape in Contemporary Brazil  [PDF]
Alberto da Silva Moreira
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.210003
Abstract: Inserted in the processes of economic, political and cultural globalization, there is a crisis within traditional meaning-producing and identity-creating institutions, such as the state, family, school and traditional religions, going on in Brazil and in other Latin American countries. If in the 1930s being Brazilian and Catholic were considered two sides of the same national religious identity coin, which could be applied, mutatis mutandis, to other countries in the region, today Brazil is rapidly becoming a multi-cultural and multi-religious country. It remains the largest Catholic country, but is also already the largest Pentecostal and the largest Spiritualist country in the world. In addition, other religious minorities, such as African-Brazilian religions, Buddhists, Muslims and Jews increasingly occupy the public sphere. Parallel to this shift, there is a significant effort being put forth by many Brazilian and South American religious communities to expand on a global level, such as the Pentecostals, charismatic Catholics, Spiritualists and Afro-Brazilian communities. This presentation analyzes the causes and the data related to this religious and identity change and highlights some trends for the future.

Evaluation of XIS-Mobile, a Domain Specific Language for Mobile Application Development  [PDF]
André Ribeiro, Alberto Rodrigues da Silva
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2014.711081
Abstract: The great evolution of the mobile market during the last years caused some fragmentation of the mobile platforms namely through the existence of different programming languages and software development tools for each platform. This fact can be an obstacle and increases the development complexity and costs when we want to develop mobile applications for multiple platforms. The XIS-Mobile domain specific language (defined as a UML profile) and its MDD-based framework address this problem by proposing platform-independent models to describe mobile applications and from them automatically generate the application’s source code. Many issues arose during an iterative process of evaluation which originated changes and the evolution of XIS-Mobile. This paper presents the results of the evaluation of XIS-Mobile (both the language and the companion framework) obtained through the implementation of a case study and by conducting a user session, and discusses its benefits and challenges.
Data Modeling and Data Analytics: A Survey from a Big Data Perspective  [PDF]
André Ribeiro, Afonso Silva, Alberto Rodrigues da Silva
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2015.812058
Abstract: These last years we have been witnessing a tremendous growth in the volume and availability of data. This fact results primarily from the emergence of a multitude of sources (e.g. computers, mobile devices, sensors or social networks) that are continuously producing either structured, semi-structured or unstructured data. Database Management Systems and Data Warehouses are no longer the only technologies used to store and analyze datasets, namely due to the volume and complex structure of nowadays data that degrade their performance and scalability. Big Data is one of the recent challenges, since it implies new requirements in terms of data storage, processing and visualization. Despite that, analyzing properly Big Data can constitute great advantages because it allows discovering patterns and correlations in datasets. Users can use this processed information to gain deeper insights and to get business advantages. Thus, data modeling and data analytics are evolved in a way that we are able to process huge amounts of data without compromising performance and availability, but instead by “relaxing” the usual ACID properties. This paper provides a broad view and discussion of the current state of this subject with a particular focus on data modeling and data analytics, describing and clarifying the main differences between the three main approaches in what concerns these aspects, namely: operational databases, decision support databases and Big Data technologies.
Somatotipo y Aptitud Física en árbitros Asistentes de Fútbol
Silva,Alberto Inácio da;
International Journal of Morphology , 2011, DOI: 10.4067/S0717-95022011000300020
Abstract: the aim of this study was to analyze the somatotype of assistant referees and examine its correlation with physical performance during fifa physical tests. study subjects were referees from the brazilian football confederation (cbf) and paranese football federation (fpf) who appeared before the physical evaluation committee of the fpf in order to submit to the physical fitness tests. the sample was comprised of 11 referees from the cbf and considered the elite of brazil, and 34 fpf referees who officiate at regional level in the state of parana. in order to determine body composition nine skin folds, nine body circumferences and four bone diameter measures were used. to assess variables related to physical fitness a battery of the following fifa physical tests were used: two runs of 50 meters and 12 minute running tests. data analysis of body composition indicated fat percentage of assistant referees from the cbf was 16.74±3.71%, and assistants of the fpf was 17.09±4.38%. there were no statistically significant differences (p>0.05). with regard to somatotype, cbf assistants were classified as meso-endomorph and fpf assistants as endo-mesomorph, in other words, cbf assistants group showed a higher predominant muscular component over fat. the difference between somatotypes was statistically significant (dds=2.22). in reference to the speed test the cbf assistant referees were faster than the fpf referees, the difference being statistically significant between results (p=0.0001). during a match, assistant referees perform a lesser physical effort than the main referee; their performance however was similar to the main referee in the physical tests.
