An existence theorem for an implicit integral equation with discontinuous right-hand side
Giovanni Anello
Journal of Inequalities and Applications , 2006,
Abstract: We establish a result concerning the existence of solutions for the following implicit integral equation: g( u( t ) )= ( t, x o + ∫ 0 t f( τ,u( τ ) )dτ ) , where is not supposed continuous with respect to the second variable.

On a Perturbed Dirichlet Problem for a Nonlocal Differential Equation of Kirchhoff Type
Anello Giovanni
Boundary Value Problems , 2011,
Abstract: We study the existence of positive solutions to the following nonlocal boundary value problem in , on , where , is a Carathéodory function, is a positive continuous function, and is a real parameter. Direct variational methods are used. In particular, the proof of the main result is based on a property of the infimum on certain spheres of the energy functional associated to problem in , .
Efecto de las Normas y Emociones en los Juicios sobre Satisfacción con la Vida en una Muestra Venezolana
Silvana D′Anello Koch
Revista Interamericana de Psicología , 2006,
Abstract: En las culturas colectivistas una parte significativa de la identidad está conformada por elementos colectivos o factores sociales que pueden influenciar profundamente los juicios sobre la satisfacción con la vida. Estudios han demostrado que Venezuela es un país altamente colectivista. El objetivo del presente estudio fue explorar la importancia relativa de las emociones y creencias normativas en los juicios sobre la satisfacción con la vida. A una muestra de 123 estudiantes de medicina se les aplicó la escala de Balance Afectivo que mide seis emociones positivas y seis negativas, la escala SAVI que mide satisfacción con la vida, la escala SAVINOR que mide las normas para la satisfacción con la vida y la escala de Rosenberg para medir autoestima. Los resultados indicaron que las emociones fueron fuertes predictores de la satisfacción con la vida y, tal como se esperaba, las normas también aportaron una significativa contribución en la explicación de la satisfacción con la vida. La autoestima presentó una asociación más débil. Los hallazgos corroboran la hipótesis sobre los efectos diferenciales de las culturas sobre los determinantes en las percepciones del bienestar psicológico.

Abstract: We performed a secondary analysis of data from a multicenter, prospective cohort study in 10 Italian ICUs. AKI was defined by renal SOFA score (creatinine>3.5mg/dL or urine output (UO) <500mL/d). Oliguria was defined as a UO <500mL/d. Mean fluid balance (MFB) and mean urine volume (MUV) were calculated as the arithmetic mean of all daily values. Use of diuretics was noted daily. To assess the impact of MFB and MUV on mortality of AKI patients, multivariable analysis was performed by Cox regression.Of the 601 included patients, 132 had AKI during ICU stay and the mortality in this group was 50%. Non-surviving AKI patients presented higher MFB (1.31 +/- 1.24 versus 0.17 +/- 0.72 L/day; P<0.001) and lower MUV (1.28 +/- 0.90 versus 2.35 +/- 0.98 L/day; P<0.001) as compared to survivors. In the multivariate analysis, MFB (adjusted hazard ratio (HR) 1.67 per L/day, 95%CI 1.33-2.09; <0.001) and MUV (adjusted HR 0.47 per L/day, 95%CI 0.33-0.67; <0.001) remained independent risk factors for 28-day mortality after adjustment for age, gender, diabetes, hypertension, diuretic use, non-renal SOFA and sepsis. Diuretic use was associated with better survival in this population (adjusted HR 0.25, 95%CI 0.12-0.52; <0.001).In this multicenter ICU study, a higher fluid balance and a lower urine volume were both important factors associated with 28-day mortality of AKI patients.
Comparative analysis of bed density, total phenol content and protein expression pattern in Posidonia oceanica (L.) Delile  [PDF]

Open Journal of Ecology (OJE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/oje.2013.36050
Abstract:

Posidonia oceanicameadows are experiencing a progressive decline, and monitoring their status is crucial for the maintenance of theseecosystems. We performed a comparativeanalysis of bed density, total phenol content and protein expression pattern to assess the conservation status ofPosidoniaplants from the S. Marinella (Rome, Italy) meadow. The total phenol content was inversely related to maximum beddensity, confirming the relationship betweenhigh phenol content and stressful conditions. In addition, protein expression pattern profilesshowed that the number of differentially expressed proteins was dramatically reduced in the latest years compared to previous analyses. Our results support the usefulness of integrating solid descriptors, such as phenol content, with novel biochemical/molecular approaches in the monitoring of meadows.

Learning about Vegetarian Diets in School: Curricular Representations of Food and Nutrients in Elementary Health Education  [PDF]
Clara Hanson
Advances in Applied Sociology (AASoci) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/aasoci.2012.21010
Abstract: This paper examines the way non-meat and plant based diets are discussed in four elementary curricula. The author used an open coding technique of grounded theory to understand the way food, nutrition and vegetarianism was discussed. The curricula relied heavily upon the USDA Food Pyramid and a related concept of “balance” for nutritional information. The curricula also discussed nutrition in terms of food and food groups, rather than in terms of nutrients. Although some of the curricula included information about the benefits of vegetarian diets, the high level of use of the Food Pyramid often overwhelmed the low level of information about vegetarianism.
Re-envisioning nursing education and practice in Nigeria for the 21st century  [PDF]
Clara Agbedia
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2012.23035
Abstract: The paper explores the current situation and future development of nursing education and practice in Nigeria and their influence on health care. As the role of the nurse continues to expand, Nigerian nurses must be skillful in effectively using evidence-based and clinically relevant information to facilitate the best possible nursing care. Major issues and challenges in this regard are discussed with some recommendations on the way forward.
Religion and Politics in Nigerian Society: Problems and Prospects (a Philosophic Probe)  [PDF]
Ogugua PaulIkechukwu, OguguaIfunanya Clara
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2015.53024
Abstract: The concepts religion and politics are problematic even at the level of conceptualization. This paper examines the two concepts in the Nigerian society and points out some of the areas of problem, and goes on to argue that peaceful co-existence of both concepts in the Nigerian society is not only possible but also realizable.
