Abstract: quality is an indispensible requirement in the health field, and its pursuit is necessary in order to meet demands by a population that is aware of its rights, as part of the essence of good work relations, and to decrease technological costs. quality thus involves all parties to the process (users and professionals), and is no longer merely an attribute of the health service. this study aimed to verify the possibility of quality planning in the family health units, using quality function deployment (qfd). qfd plans quality according to user satisfaction, involving staff professionals and identifying new approaches to improve work processes. development of the array, called the house of quality, is this method's most important characteristics. the results show a similarity between the quality demanded by users and the quality planned by professionals. the current study showed that qfd is an efficient tool for quality planning in public health services.
Current transformers with nanocrystalline alloy toroidal core: analytical, computational and experimental studies
Luciano, Benedito Antonio;Batista, Thiago de Carvalho;Freire, Raimundo Carlos Silvério;Guerra, Francisco das Chagas Fernandes;Castro, Walman Benício de;

Abstract: in this paper are presented theoretical analysis and experimental results concerning the performance of toroidal cores used in current transformers. for most problems concerning transformers design, analytical methods are useful, but numerical methods provide a better understanding of the transformers electromagnetic behaviour. numerical field solutions may be used to determine the electrical equivalent circuit parameters of toroidal core current transformers. since the exciting current of current transformers alters the ratio and phase angle of primary and secondary currents, it is made as small as possible though the use of high permeability and low loss magnetic material in the construction of the core. according to experimental results presented in this work, in comparison with others soft magnetic materials, nanocrystalline alloys appear as the best material to be used in toroidal core for current transformers.

Abstract: Fossils have been familiar objects to man since the prehistoric times, with striking connotations in the folklore of several cultures. They were used as decorative elements in necklaces, regarded as heroes or giants in the classical greek and roman times, interpreted as teeth and bones of dragons, used as amulets against the bites and poisons of snakes, and as medicines to the treatment of several disorders. This article describes some of these examples.

Abstract: Este artigo analisa as concep es sobre o ensino e a ciência geográfica nas séries iniciais, seus desdobramentos práticos e a forma como o desenvolvimento dos conceitos e das metodologias pedagógicas acerca do saber geográfico têm-se convertido em uma disciplina esvaziada de significado. Esta análise crítica visa contribuir para a reflex o em torno da necessidade de converter a Geografia em um instrumento de reflex o, organiza o e transforma o socioespacial. Nesse sentido, os cursos destinados à forma o de professores devem orientar-se pelos princípios da reflex o crítica e da constru o da cidadania. This article analyzes the concepts of teaching and the geographical science in early grades, its practical sprawls and how the development of concepts and pedagogical methodologies on geographic knowledge has generated into a meaningless subject. The purpose of this critical analysis aims at contributing to a reflection around the need to convert Geography into an instrument of reflection, organization and social spacial transformation. Hence, teacherstraining courses must be guided by the principles of reflection, critics and citizenship upbringing.
Grain Yield and Protein Content of Brazilian Cowpea Genotypes under Diverse Ugandan Environments  [PDF]

Abstract: Twenty nine cowpea genotypes, including four Ugandan genotypes, were evaluated for grain yield, protein stability and adaptability under diverse environments in a randomized complete block design with three replications. The analysis showed that cowpea grain yield and protein content were significantly (P < 0.01) affected by genotypes (G), environments (E), and interaction (G x E). Genotypes C2T and C2I had the highest grain yield and protein content respectively, but both were only adapted to specific environments. Genotypes C1J, C1V, C2A, C2O, and C2R were adapted to three environments with high yield which was stable. Similarly, genotypes BRS Pujante, C1J, C2Q and CIT also expressed high protein levels with high stability and wide adaptability. The study further revealed that Namulonge 2014B, Serere 2014A, Serere 2014B and Serere were the most favorable environments for obtaining high yield and protein respectively, because at these four environments, mean yield and protein were higher than the overall mean. All Brazilian genotypes had high protein levels compared to Ugandan genotypes indicating the potential of Brazilian genotypes in improving cowpea seed protein content in Uganda.

Abstract: Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide in the world. In sugarcane, it is used as a herbicide when applied at its field rate, but it is also used as ripener when applied as low doses. However, the effects of glyphosate on plant metabolism and sugarcane growth are not fully understood. This study aimed to evaluate the metabolic changes and the effects on sugarcane plant growth caused by the application of different doses of glyphosate. Sugarcane plants were grown in a greenhouse and subjected to glyphosate applications at doses of 7.2; 18; 36; 72; 180; 360 and 720 g a.e. ha-1. Plants grown without an herbicide application were used as a control. Plants from each treatment were collected at 2, 7, 14, and 21 days after treatment (DAT) application to quantify the levels of shikimic acid, quinic acid, shikimate-3-phosphate, glyphosate, α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (AMPA), phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan. Visual evaluations of plant intoxication were performed at the same time as the collection of plants, and the quantification of their shoot dry biomass was performed at 21 DAT. At doses of glyphosate greater than 72 g a.e. ha-1, increases in the levels of shikimic acid, quinic acid, and shikimate-3-phosphate occurred and AMPA was detected in the plants. Initially, glyphosate caused increases in the plant levels of phenylalanine and tyrosine at doses of 72 and 180 g a.e. ha-1, although a decrease in the levels of aromatic amino acids subsequently occurred at and above the doses of 72 or 180 g a.e. ha-1. The doses ranging from 7.2 to 36 g a.e. ha-1 promoted an increase in plant shoot biomass, and doses greater than 72 g a.e. ha-1 caused significant reductions in dry mass.
