Fractal coding based on image local fractal dimension
Conci, Aura;Aquino, Felipe R.;
Computational & Applied Mathematics , 2005,
Abstract: fractal codification of images is based on self-similar and self-affine sets. the codification process consists of construction of an operator which will represent the image to be encoded. if a complicated picture can be represented by an operator then it will be transmitted or stored very efficiently. clearly, this has many applications on data compression. the great disadvantage of the automatic form of fractal compression is its encoding time. most of the time spent in construction of such operator is due on finding the best match between parts of the image to be encoded. however, since the conception of automatic fractal image compression, researches on improvement of the compression time are widespread. this work aims to provide a new idea for decrease the encoding time: a classification of image parts based on their local fractal dimension. the idea is implemented on two steps. first, a preprocessing analysis of the image identify the complexity of each image block computing its dimension. then, only parts within the same range of complexity are used for testing the better self-affine pairs, reducing the compression time. the performance of this proposition, is compared with others fractal image compression methods. the points considered are image fidelity, encoding time and amount of compression on the image file.

Las traducciones como fuentes para la prensa en el siglo XIX: el caso de la Gaceta de Caracas
Navarro,Aura;
íkala, Revista de Lenguaje y Cultura , 2010,
Abstract: objective: to study the influence of translations published in the caracas gazette (gaceta de caracas) during independence and the first republic of venezuela. method: the study consisted of three stages: 1) identification of translations; 2) comparative analysis between source texts (sts) and target texts (tts); and 3) analysis of translation strategies. results: english is the most translated language in the gazette, given that the majority of source texts were taken from american and british newspapers. the content of the translations is largely political; all translations are anonymous. we observed the use of summary and periphrasis; literal translation was also a frequently used translation technique. notably, appropriation was utilized as a translation strategy in half of the translations. conclusions: translation in the caracas gazette contributed to the consolidation of venezuelan independence and the creation of the first republic of venezuela due to the use of appropriation combined with the political purposes of the translators.
"Sufrimos vergüenza": mujeres k'iche' frente a la justicia comunitaria en Guatemala
Cumes, Aura;
Desacatos , 2009,
Abstract: this paper analyzes some particular and controversial cases involving the application of community law to k'iche' women in guatemala, and seeks to place these specific cases within the debate about the political vindication of mayan law that currently takes place in a postwar and violent environment. these experiences challenge us to remain beyond the political controversy between defending an idealized mayan law and the uncritical rejection of a deeper analysis of reality.
ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE: A MATTER OF INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP BEHAVIOR TRANSFORMATION
Aura CODREANU
Journal of Defense Resources Management , 2010,
Abstract: Contemporary life is raising a plethora of challenges for all organizations. Therefore, flexibility and continuous change ought to be their priorities. The main problem is how to actually implement change and make it work. The answer suggested by this article is that by transforming people’s behavior and attitudes one can actually lead to organizational change. However, some insight into the prerequisites needed to transform individual and work group attitudes and behavior is required. As a result, in order to identify and list a set of principles that should play the role of the 10 Commandments in any organizational change process the aim of this article is to take a theoretical approach to this issue.
ADVISABILITY OF MERGING THE BUCHAREST STOCK EXCHANGE AND THE SIBIU MONETARYFINANCIAL AND STOCK EXCHANGE

Studia Universitatis Vasile Goldis Arad, Seria Stiinte Economice , 2011,
Abstract: Analysis of performances of local stock exchanges in the latest years points out thenecessity of increasing the visibility of the local capital market in the regional andEuropean landscape. A single stock market may have the effect of increased credibility,giving thus an impulse to the number of new listings and of new investors.
Opinión pública y formación del departamento del Valle, 1903-1910 Public Opinion and Origins of Valle Department, 1903 –1910
Aura Hurtado
Revista CS , 2011,
Abstract: Dentro del amplio conjunto de sucesos que rodearon la formación del departamento del Valle como una entidad territorial y política autónoma en abril de 1910, el debate público que sostuvieron los periódicos de las provincias involucradas en torno a la conveniencia de dividir el departamento del Cauca ocupó un lugar central. El presente texto se propone delinear los contornos y formas que alcanzó este debate mostrando cómo el proyecto divisionista encontró legitimación ante la opinión pública. Within the broad set of events surrounding the formation of the department of Valle, as an autonomous political and territorial entity, in April 1910, the public debate held a central place by newspapers in the provinces concerned about the advisability of dividing the Cauca department. This text seeks to delineate the contours and shapes that reached this debate by showing how the proposed separation found standing in public opinion.

Latinos, hispanos, espa ol y espanglish

Amerika : Mémoires, Identités, Territoires , 2011, DOI: 10.4000/amerika.2045
Abstract: El presente trabajo pretende debatir sobre diversos estereotipos relacionados con la presencia hispana en los Estados Unidos ya sea inmigrante o nativa, en cuanto a la percepción que de esta se tiene en la sociedad, la reacción de los hispanos ante estas imágenes deformadas, parciales o incompletas y sus repercusiones en el ámbito lingüístico. En efecto, si la identidad está intrínsecamente ligada a la lengua, veremos en qué medida se siguen identificando los hispanos con el espa ol, cómo las apelaciones espanglish y espa ol estadounidense influyen en la definición de una identidad cultural heterogénea y cómo se manifiesta esta nueva identidad híbrida a través de la literatura. The present work intends to debate about different stereotypes related to Hispanic presence in the United States, foreign-born as well as native, regarding the perception that society has of this presence, Hispanic reaction to deformed, partial or incomplete images and the repercussions of such images in the linguistic area. Indeed, if identity is inherently linked to language, we will discuss how Hispanics can still identify with the Spanish language, how spanglish and U.S Spanish influence the definition of a heterogeneous cultural identity, and how this new hybrid identity manifests itself through literature.
