Retinal ganglion cell survival and axon regeneration in WldS transgenic rats after optic nerve crush and lens injury
Barbara Lorber, Alessia Tassoni, Natalie D Bull, Marilita M Moschos, Keith R Martin
BMC Neuroscience , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2202-13-56
Abstract: As previously reported we found that the WldS mutation does not protect RGC bodies after optic nerve crush alone. Surprisingly, we found that WldS transgenic rats did not exhibit the enhanced RGC survival response after combined optic nerve crush and lens injury that was observed in wildtype rats. RGC axon regeneration past the optic nerve lesion site was, however, similar in WldS and wildtypes. Furthermore, activation of retinal glia, previously shown to be associated with enhanced RGC survival and axon regeneration after optic nerve crush and lens injury, was unaffected in WldS transgenic rats.RGC axon regeneration is similar between WldS transgenic and wildtype rats, but WldS transgenic rats do not exhibit enhanced RGC survival after combined optic nerve crush and lens injury suggesting that the neuroprotective effects of lens injury on RGC survival may be limited by the WldS protein.
Polyphenol and Biogenic Amine Profiles of Albana and Lambrusco Grape Berries and Wines Obtained Following Different Agricultural and Oenological Practices  [PDF]

Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2014.51002

The levels of polyphenols, anthocyanins, antioxidant activity and of biogenic amines, were measured in white (Albana) and red (Lambrusco) grape berries and wines from the Emilia-Romagna region (Italy) obtained following conventional, organic and biodynamic agricultural and oenological practices. No significant difference was shown among the samples coming from different agricultural and winemaking practices, with few exceptions of single compounds. Biogenic amine amounts were higher in red than in white berries and wines. Putrescine and histamine were the most abundant biogenic amines respectively in berries and wines of both cultivars. Red grapes and wines were richer in anthocyanins and showed higher antioxidant activity than white ones. The total level of polyphenols was similar in red and white berries and wines, but with different metabolite profiles depending on the grape variety.

A leitura e a escrita nos anos iniciais do Ensino Fundamental: a prática docente a partir da voz dos alunos
Elvira Cristina Martins Tassoni
Eccos Revista Científica , 2012,
Abstract: This article presents a study which explored the school practices of reading and writing in the early years of elementary school. Through observations in classrooms, from 1st to 5th grade, the study aimed to identify which activities of reading and writing were proposed most often in the classroom by teachers. Based on the observed data, some students were selected for interviews in order to collect information about how they perceived the performed activities. The data analysis confirms a teaching conception of reading and writing that introduces the use of text only after students become literate. Students, in turn, proved to be available, sensitive and open to the proposed activities, regardless of the level of reflection required.
Lung Physiology and Obesity: Anesthetic Implications for Thoracic Procedures

Anesthesiology Research and Practice , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/154208
Abstract: Obesity is a worldwide health problem affecting 34% of the American population. As a result, more patients requiring anesthesia for thoracic surgery will be overweight or obese. Changes in static and dynamic respiratory mechanics, upper airway anatomy, as well as multiple preoperative comorbidities and altered drug metabolism, characterize obese patients and affect the anesthetic plan at multiple levels. During the preoperative evaluation, patients should be assessed to identify who is at risk for difficult ventilation and intubation, and postoperative complications. The analgesia plan should be executed starting in the preoperative area, to increase the success of extubation at the end of the case and prevent reintubation. Intraoperative ventilatory settings should be customized to the changes in respiratory mechanics for the specific patient and procedure, to minimize the risk of lung damage. Several non invasive ventilatory modalities are available to increase the success rate of extubation at the end of the case and to prevent reintubation. The goal of this review is to evaluate the physiological and anatomical changes associated with obesity and how they affect the multiple components of the anesthetic management for thoracic procedures. 1. Introduction Obesity is a worldwide health problem. It is estimated that 34% of the North American adult population is obese, of which 5% is morbidly obese [1]. Thus, more patients requiring anesthesia for thoracic surgery will be overweight or obese. Anesthetic goals for thoracic procedures include a smooth induction and intubation, stable hemodynamic parameters during the intraoperative period, optimal lung isolation with adequate minute ventilation and good oxygenation,and optimal analgesia. However, being obese poses a challenge for all the above. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the physiological and anatomical changes associated with obesity and how they affect the anesthetic management for thoracic procedures. 2. Physiological Changes and Comorbidities Associated with Obesity 2.1. Respiratory Mechanics Obesity is associated with restrictive lung disease caused by increased intraabdominal pressure and decreased chest wall compliance [2, 3], resulting in a decrease in static and dynamic lung volumes [4] (Table 1). Low functional residual capacity (FRC) and expiratory reserve volume (ERV) contribute, respectively, to rapid desaturation with apnea or hypoventilation and air trapping with poor lung collapse during one-lung ventilation (OLV). This is more pronounced when ERV approaches or exceeds closing

L’évolution récente des expositions temporaires sur le Moyen ge en Italie: Public, thèmes, finalités
Trivellone Alessia
Zograf , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/zog1135223t
Abstract: This article proposes a reflection about Italian art exhibitions on Middle Ages all over the twentieth century in order to understand the reception of medieval history in Italy. The Italian case is compared with the other European countries and their own relationships with Middle Ages. The articles studies also the important changes in the cultural offer and in the museum function during the last decade of the twentieth century and analyses their major consequences on the exhibitions. Lastly the ‘status’ of the exhibited objects and their mise-en-scène are examined.
Giordano da Pisa e il linguaggio degli angeli Giordano da Pisa and the language of angels
Alessia Francone
Reti Medievali Rivista , 2012, DOI: 10.6092/1593-2214/353
Abstract: Tra le questioni sugli angeli affrontate dal domenicano Giordano da Pisa nella sua predicazione, il saggio prende in considerazione quella del loro linguaggio. L’argomento della locutio angelica aveva assunto un certo rilievo nella riflessione della Scolastica a partire dal XIII secolo ed era stato discusso ampiamente in particolare da Tommaso d’Aquino e da Egidio Romano; esaminando il pensiero di Giordano si può osservare la ricaduta nell’omiletica di un tema altamente speculativo e vedere come il domenicano, che combina con una certa libertà intellettuale le formulazioni di Tommaso e di Egidio, filtri l’argomento per il suo uditorio laico, adattando e semplificando i passaggi più difficili ai fini di una più agevole comprensione. Among the issues about the angels considered by the Dominican preacher Giordano da Pisa, this essay studies the problem of their language. The question of the locutio angelica had become quite relevant in the scholastic thought from the XIIIth century and had been widely discussed by Thomas Aquinas and Giles of Rome; the study of this argument in Giordano da Pisa’s sermons shows the transition in the homiletic texts of a highly speculative theme and we can see how the preacher, who combines rather freely the positions of Thomas and Giles, filters the question for his lay public, simplifying the more difficult passages.
Results from LHCf Experiment

Abstract: The LHCf experiment has taken data in 2009 and 2010 p-p collisions at LHC at √s = 0.9 TeV and √s = 7 TeV. The measurement of the forward neutral particle spectra produced in proton-proton collisions at LHC up to an energy of 14 TeV in the center of mass system are of fundamental importance to calibrate the Monte Carlo models widely used in the high energy cosmic ray (HECR) field, up to an equivalent laboratory energy of the order of 1017 eV. In this paper the first results on the inclusive photon spectrum measured by LHCf is reported. Comparison of this spectrum with the model expectations show significant discrepancies, mainly in the high energy region. In addition, perspectives for future analyses as well as the program for the next data taking period, in particular the possibility to take data in p-Pb collisions, will be discussed.

Abstract: This article focuses on the comparison between European Union Law and Council of Europe Law in the field of the protection of minority languages and looks at the relationships between the two systems. The Council of Europe has been very important in the protection of minority languages, having created two treaties of particular relevance: the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages in 1992 and the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities in 1995; both treaties contain many detailed provisions relating to minority languages. Not all countries, even of the European Union, have ratified these treaties. 12 out of 27 EU countries did not ratify the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages. The European Union supports multilingualism because it wants to achieve unity while maintaining diversity. Important steps, with respect to minority languages, were taken in the European Community, notably in the form of European Parliament Resolutions. The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, approved in Nice the 7th December 2000, contains art. 21 and art. 22 related to this topic. The Treaty of Lisbon makes a cross reference to the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union which is, consequently,legally binding under the Treaty of Lisbon since December 2009. The Charter could give ground for appeal to the European Court of Justice in cases of discrimination on the grounds of language.
