New Frontiers of Online Communication of Small and Medium Museums in Campania Region, Italy  [PDF]
Giuseppe Vito, Alessandra Sorrentini, Davide Di Palma, Vincenzo Raiola, Maria Tabouras
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2017.79075
Abstract: Objectives: The purpose of this paper is to analyze the marketing relationship between small and medium museums in Campania Region and their current and potential audience. In this regard, the effectiveness of online communication proposed by these museums in relation to consumers is analyzed. A comparison is made with online communication effectiveness of large museums in order to analyse the main differences and to identify the related managerial implications. Method: The research method is based on the study of multiple cases, used in its descriptive mode. Out of 21 museums in Campania having a website administrated by the museums themselves, we selected 10 small and medium ones. Subsequently was conducted a content analysis on the aspects of the communication of Facebook pages and web sites of the 10 selected museums. Finally, 10 museums were compared with 4 large museum consortiums. Findings: The analysis has demonstrated that the communication through the Web 2.0 tools is more suited for establishing dialogic relations with the current and potential museum audiences. It has also shown that from the perspective of advanced interactivity, due to their management creativity and flexibility the communicative content of the museums under study is generally more effective than in case of larger museums having more human resources and capital at their disposal. Research limits: The main limitation of the research is that it does not detect if a performant interactive online communication is able to stimulate demand cultural. It should be noted that this objective was not the purpose of research of this paper. Originality of the study: The paper is an original and innovative work since in the literature there is
Light repolarization by scattering media
Jacques Sorrentini,Myriam Zerrad,Gabriel Soriano,Claude Amra
Physics , 2011,
Abstract: The polarization of a coherent depolarized incident light beam passing through a disordered medium is investigated. The local polarization of the scattered far field and the probability density function are calculated and show an excellent agreement with experiment. It is demonstrated that complex media may confer high degree of polarization (0.75 DOP average) to the incident unpolarized light.
Internet as a Growing and Dynamic Network: An Economic View  [PDF]
Pasquale Lucio Scandizzo, Alessandra Imperiali
Communications and Network (CN) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/cn.2014.62009

The past few decades have witnessed renewed interest and research efforts on the part of the scientific community. After spending decades to disassemble nature, focusing the attention on its components, scientists have shifted their attention on complex networks. These basic structures constitute a wide range of systems in nature and society, but their design is irregular, evolves dynamically over time and their components can fit in a large multiplicity of alternative ways. Nevertheless, the most recent studies of networks have made remarkable progresses by investigating some critical issues of structure and dynamics, thereby improving the understanding of the topology and the growth processes of complex networks. From an economic point of view, networks are especially interesting because they can be considered as a problem of allocation of a critical resource, information, under multiple constraints. They can also be viewed as forms of poliarchies that reproduce, for many aspects, the market paradigm, with surprising properties of self-organization and resilience, which go much beyond the characteristics that are generally attributed to general equilibrium structures. In this paper we first address the major results achieved in the study of complex network and then focus our attention on two specific, highly dynamic and complex networks: Internet and the World Wide Web.

The Effects of Modafinil in People with a Diagnosis of Schizophrenia  [PDF]
Christopher A. Griffiths, Alessandra Girardi
Open Journal of Psychiatry (OJPsych) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojpsych.2018.81008
Abstract: This review seeks to describe the use and effects of the drug modafinil. Specifically, it presents the research of the impact of modafinil for people with diagnosis and experience of schizophrenia. Recent reviews have shown that modafinil can positively impact on cognitive function in people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia. There is emerging evidence for the positive impact of modafinil on negative symptoms, functioning, quality of life, wellbeing, and body mass index (BMI) for people with schizophrenia. Compared to other central nerve stimulant (CNS) drugs, modafinil has a low risk of dependency and few negative side effects; but there are risks of triggering positive symptoms in schizophrenia. A well designed and sufficiently large randomised control trial is required to test the potential of the impact of modafinil in the lives of people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia. Future research should report participant’s perspective of the value of modafinil connected to what concerns them and what they want to achieve in their lives.
Role of health-related quality of life measures in the routine care of people with multiple sclerosis

Abstract: Reasons for lack of transfer of HRQOL measurements to clinical practice may be cultural, methodological, or practical. With regard to MS, the proliferation of instruments seems to constitute a barrier, with no particular instrument having gained wide popularity or consensus. Other barriers are lack of resources for the administration, collection and storage of the data, and inability of clinicians to score, interpret, and use HRQOL instrument to guide clinical care. It is therefore important to refine existing tools, extending clinical validation to wider contexts and cultures. More studies assessing acceptability and clinicians' and patients' preferences for different instruments are also required.Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease of the central nervous system of unknown etiology and poorly understood pathogenesis. There is a north-south gradient of MS prevalence in the northern hemisphere, with highest levels (over 100 per 100,000) in northern regions [1,2]. It is a chronic disease with a modest effect on life expectancy, but a broad spectrum of consequences, of variable severity, on physical and psychological characteristics, that vary between individuals and within individuals over time. The disease typically strikes women (2:1) in their peak years of career development and family life; commonly there are exacerbations and remissions followed by progression whose rate and extent vary [3]. There is also a benign form of MS, characterised by few relapses, long periods of remission, and mild activity limitations over the long term [4]. The available treatments have at best a modest benefit on the course of the disease [5].Interest in measuring outcomes in MS has increased markedly over the past 20 years. Standardised instruments have been developed, the most-used being the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) [6] which is a mixed impairment/activity limitations scale based on neurological examination of eight functional systems, plus ambulation/

Abstract: the objective of this article is to contribute at the present time for the reflection about the teacher's infant education formation. therefore, it is done a revision of the bibliography that has been alerting for the interfaces of the neo-liberalism and the post-modernism with the educational politics and, especially, the politics of teacher's formation. the documents produced by mec, as guiding for the implementation of the neo-liberal ideal in the field of the teacher's infant education formation, are analyzed, as references as for the teacher's formation as to define knowledge to be worked in the education from 0 to 6. at the end, we conclude that the tendencies of this process are the haste the teacher's formation, the gradual loss of control of the same ones on its professional exercise and the transformation of the classrooms of infant education in labs of implementation of the pedagogic ideals intimated to the neo-liberalism and the post-modernism.

Pimentel, Alessandra;
Estudos de Psicologia (Natal) , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-294X2007000200008
Abstract: the theory of the experiential learning consists of a perspective about the development of the adult, in special, of the professional. according to its founder, the american david kolb, the profissionality is a permanent process of learning, provided the individual can assume appropriate the experiences of professional performance. the principles and basic concepts of this approach are presented, based on the relation between certain types of learning and the development of the affectivity, perception, cognition and behavior belonging to the professional life track or in specific situations as it is the case of projects of formation in service. the holistic and integrative perspective of the experiential learning has some proximity with contemporary approaches which emphasize the role of the reflective thought for improvement of the professional qualification. however, kolb?s theory follows a proper and original way, with great potential for studies and formative proposals for the professional development.
As categorias conhecimento e processos de Perfetti na leitura em língua materna: um experimento
Baldo, Alessandra;
Linguagem em (Dis)curso , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S1518-76322008000200005
Abstract: perfetti et al. (1996) classify the components of reading comprehension into two main categories: process and knowledge categories. while lexical processes, working memory capacity, inference making and comprehension monitoring are situated in the first one, word knowledge and domain knowledge are placed in the second one. this paper aims at showing the relevance of the types of knowledge that make up the second category to the overall reading comprehension process, as well as the interdependence between both categories. in order to do so, a comparison was made between the strategies used by eight adult readers while answering specific questions related to vocabulary inference as part of an l1 reading test carried out through the verbal protocol technique. participants were divided into two groups of reading proficiency, according to their scores on the test. data analysis ratified the intrinsic relationship between word meanings and domain knowledge on reading comprehension processes, more specifically on lexical inferencing.
O ouvido, a boca e o olho: a psicanálise entre o apagamento e a memória dos lugares da linguagem
Caneppele, Alessandra;
ágora: Estudos em Teoria Psicanalítica , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-14982007000100004
Abstract: in entwurf einer psychologie freud describes three primary life experiences in which a sound could play a role in the building of meanings. this triple presentation agrees with the tripartite structure of the language exposed in zur auffassung der aphasien; it allows an extension of the proceeding of building word meanings partly presented in that first text; and, later, it will be upheld in the tripartition of the proceedings of building the meaning in the dreaming work. thus, we may reduce the debate about the limits of language in psychoanalytic theory to punctual erasures in the multiplicity of those meaning proceedings and finally postulate that these erasures constitute a method pertaining to the very subject of the psychoanalytic investigation.
