Indexicals in Virtual Environments  [PDF]
Bernardo Alonso
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2014.42018

In this paper I explored three well-known cases that seem to cast doubt on the notion that a speaker is always at the place of the utterance when the utterance occurs. I gave a few examples produced in Second Life environment, which cannot be handled correctly by evaluating the expression at issue with respect to the traditional view, i.e., the kaplanian framework—where the agent and the utterer will always be identical, and the referent of “I” will always be the utterer. The same happens to “here” and “now”; in each case the character of the indexical is a function from a contextual parameter to the referent of the expression. An example of logical truth peculiar to indexicals is the sentence “I am here now”, since, according to that view, no utterance can take place in a context whose agent is not in its location in its time. Finally I concluded by claiming that particular kinds of utterances produced in virtual environments (VE) break with the logical truth status of “I am here now”.

Study of Depletion and Contamination Profile of Dioxins in Duck Intensive Production  [PDF]
Miguel Cardo, Fernando Bernardo
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2016.713160
Abstract: During 2016, following the implementation of a dioxin contamination monitoring in poultry meat (ducks) in a slaughterhouse, a positive sample was found. The investigation identified the wood shavings used as bedding material in the duck farm as the possible source of contamination of these animals. In this episode, contamination profiles of higher and lower concentrations, seem to be very similar, being OCDD, OCDF and 1,2,3,4,6,7,8-HpCDD responsible for 74.4% of the total contamination of those animals. The study revealed a reduction of poultry contamination after the removal of the source of contamination, with an average daily depletion percentage level ranging between 1.43% and 4.35%.
The Opossum genome reveals further evidence for regulatory evolution in mammalian diversification
Bernardo Lemos
Genome Biology , 2007, DOI: 10.1186/gb-2007-8-8-223
Abstract: Mammalian diversification began approximately 250 million years ago, yielding a stunning diversity of form and function that falls into three major groups with fundamentally distinct modes of reproduction. The monotremes (Prototheria) comprise a handful of extant species of egg-laying mammals: the platypus and a few species of echidna. Placentals (the Eutheria) comprise about 4,500-5,000 species characterized by lengthy gestation with placental nourishment and neonates born at an advanced developmental stage and often nearly independent from the mother. Marsupials (the Metatheria) comprise about 250-300 species that are characterized by a rudimentary placenta and short gestation, after which poorly developed embryos are born and undergo subsequent development during lactation, usually inside the mother's marsupium, or pouch.Marsupial and placental mammals diverged about 125-190 million years ago [1-3]. While the marsupial radiation stopped short of producing as many species as the placental one, the impressive diversification of metatherians in South America and Australia resulted in a wide array of life histories and morphologies, many of which matched those observed in placental mammals - from herbivores to insectivores to carnivores. Two of the most notable cases are now extinct. The Tasmanian wolf (Thylacinus), also known as the pouched dog for its striking resemblance to placental canids, was heavily hunted and the last individual died in captivity in an Australian zoo in September 1936 [4]. Similarly, the marsupial Thylacosmilus from the South American Miocene possessed skull and saber-tooth morphologies with a remarkable resemblance to those of placental saber-tooth tigers [5]. Other cases of striking convergence include living species of marsupial 'anteaters', 'mice', 'moles', and 'flying squirrels' [5]. This remarkable natural experiment in mammalian evolution offers unique opportunities to understand the genomic and developmental correlates of these morpho
Internet, espa?o público e marketing político: entre a promo??o da comunica??o e o solipsismo moralista
Sorj, Bernardo;
Novos Estudos - CEBRAP , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-33002006000300006
Abstract: optimism concerning the democratic potential of new communication technologies is a speculation to be confronted with concrete experiences. the referendum about firearms in brazil indicates that internet's impact on political dynamics presents unexpected dimensions, such as the potential to destroy the public space.

Beiguelman, Bernardo;
Genetics and Molecular Biology , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-47572000000200006
Abstract: the present paper intends to be a brief historical analysis of the conditions for the development of human and medical genetics in brazil.
Celso Furtado e o pensamento social brasileiro
Ricupero, Bernardo;
Estudos Avan?ados , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40142005000100024
Abstract: the article points out that celso furtado, in a economia colonial do brasil nos séculos xvi e xvii, makes use of some of the most influential interpretations of brazil. if citations are not common in forma??o econ?mica do brasil and his other books, the same does not happen with his phd thesis. hence, the possibility of exploring the implicit dialogue between furtado and brazilian social thought can be open.
Etnografia da leitura num grupo de estudos espírita
Lewgoy, Bernardo;
Horizontes Antropológicos , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-71832004000200011
Abstract: kardecism is a religion which confers great deal of importance to the study of a specific literature, understood as the complement of a religious revelation. this article, based upon an ethnographic research in a traditional middle-class kardecist center in porto alegre, examines some ways through which the kardecists, structured in small groups, relate with this literate tradition. the group is fundamental in the spiritualist identity formation for two reasons: it limits the way people belong and identities, converted into differences of doctrine comprehension. besides, it is one of the instances of construction of the spiritualist presenter, who learns to profit from the reading of texts aiming to place himself as an orator, helped by formulas extracted from a specific repertoire. inspired by the discussions on orality and literacy and in the recent proposal of an ethonography of reading (boyarin, 1993) i will try to show that, if the spiritualists' speech is built as orality supported by texts, there are also very important informal dimensions to be considered which contextualize and update these group's relation with sacred texts.
Conhecimento e metáfora
Bernardo, Gustavo;
Alea : Estudos Neolatinos , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-106X2004000100003
Abstract: study of the ambivalent power of metaphor as agent of knowledge: either one must resist against metaphors because they dissolve meaning, or metaphors become weapons against the dissolution of meaning and generate meanings amidst reified ones.
O nomos e a lei: considera??es sobre o realismo político em Carl Schmitt
Ferreira, Bernardo;
Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2008000200004
Abstract: the article deals with the political realism theme in the way of thinking of carl schmitt, in the light of his reflections on law and history of international politics in the modern world. for that purpose, the text analyses his narrative on the establishment of international relations order from the sixteenth century, as presented in the book nomos der erde im v?lkerrecht des jus publicum europaeum (the nomos of the earth in the international law of jus publicum europaeum). this analyses looks forward to place in evidence the way carl schmitt conceives the relation between modern age law and reality, and, by this, intends to present an image of his political realism that takes into account some of his historical and philosophical premises
Schmitt, representa??o e forma política
Ferreira, Bernardo;
Lua Nova: Revista de Cultura e Política , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-64452004000100003
Abstract: the article discusses the concept of representation in carl schmitt's political-juridical work, with special reference to roman catholicism and political form, published in 1923. it focuses schmitt's opposition between the modern technical rationality and the juridical rationality (whose most finished expression is found in the idea of representation). then it relates the issues connected to the problem of political representation with some of schmitt's main subjects, such as sovereingty, decision and "the political".
