Metabolic Properties of Fibers and Connective Tissue of Four Muscles from Bovine Carcasses  [PDF]
Marie-Pierre Ellies-Oury, Rollande Dumont, Didier Micol, Yves Durand, Brigitte Picard
Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2015.616157
Abstract: Meat-grain-size (MGS) assessment is an empirical method for the early prediction of meat quality, a larger grain being synonymous with higher meat tenderness. The objective was to characterize 4 muscles (longissimus thoracis LT; rectus abdominis RA; longus colli LC; diaphragma D) of 5 coarse and 5 fine carcasses in terms of MGS in order to establish a link between muscular physicochemical properties and carcass MGS score. All comparisons were made of samples with similar fat content. The broiled sample hardness (shear force) was significantly higher for the coarse group than for the fine group (7.20 vs 5.89 kg; RA). Higher collagen content (27.94 vs 24.87 mg/g of dry matter in LT muscle; 15.86 vs 13.13 mg/g of dry matter in D muscle), higher oxidative metabolism (cytochrome-c oxidase; LT and D) but also higher glycolytic metabolism (lactate dehydrogenase; LT) were also observed in the coarse groups. Not all the muscles react in a similar way depending on the MGS group. Nevertheless, significant results are constant from one muscle to another, the RA being the only muscle for which the difference in hardness between the two groups is significant.
Narrazioni e salute
Micol Bronzini
m@gm@ , 2012,
Abstract: Alle narrazioni di malattia si accostano oggi discipline diverse: dall'antropologia medica, cui si deve l'iniziale esplorazione di questo campo; alla medicina, che mostra segnali di insofferenza verso il riduzionismo biologico e la presunta oggettività propugnata dal paradigma imperante dell'evidence based medicine; alle scienze sociali, e in particolare alla sociologia della salute che, pur nella eterogeneità di approcci che la caratterizzano, ha ormai consolidato il proprio interesse per le pratiche narrative, come modalità privilegiata per la comprensione dei vissuti soggettivi di malattia (illness).

Nation Drag: Uses of the Exotic
Micol Seigel
Journal of Transnational American Studies , 2009,
Abstract: In Uneven Encounters, the forthcoming book from which this article is excerpted, Micol Seigel chronicles the exchange of popular culture between Brazil and the United States in the years between the World Wars, and she demonstrates how that exchange affected ideas of race and nation in both countries. From Americans interpreting advertisements for Brazilian coffee or dancing the Brazilian maxixe, to Rio musicians embracing the “foreign” qualities of jazz, Seigel traces a lively, cultural back-and-forth. Along the way, she shows how race and nation are constructed together, by both non-elites and elites, and gleaned from global cultural and intellectual currents as well as local, regional, and national ones. Seigel explores the circulation of images of Brazilian coffee and of maxixe in the United States during the period just after the imperial expansions of the early twentieth century. Exoticist interpretations structured North Americans’ paradoxical sense of self as productive “consumer citizens.” Some people, however, could not simply assume the privileges of citizenship. In their struggles against racism, Afro-descended citizens living in the cities of Rio de Janeiro, S o Paulo, New York, and Chicago encountered images and notions of each other, and found them useful. Seigel introduces readers to cosmopolitan Afro-Brazilians and African Americans who rarely traveled far but who absorbed ideas from abroad nonetheless. African American vaudeville artists saw the utility of pretending to “be” Brazilian to cross the color line on stage. Putting on “nation drag,” they passed not from one race to another but out of familiar racial categories entirely. Afro-Brazilian journalists reported intensively on foreign, particularly North American, news and eventually entered into conversation with the U.S. black press in a collaborative but still conflictual dialogue. Seigel suggests that projects comparing U.S. and Brazilian racial identities as two distinct constructions are misconceived. Racial formations transcend national borders; attempts to understand them must do the same.
Updating constraints on inflationary features in the primordial power spectrum with the Planck data
Micol Benetti
Physics , 2013, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.88.087302
Abstract: We present new constraints on possible features in the primordial inflationary density perturbations power spectrum in light of the recent Cosmic Microwave Background Anisotropies measurements from the Planck satellite. We found that the Planck data hints for the presence of features in two different ranges of angular scales, corresponding to multipoles 10< l <60 and 150< l < 300, with a decrease in the best fit chi^2 value with respect to the featureless "vanilla" LCDM model of Delta chi^2 around 9 in both cases.
Sofrimento social: idiomas da exclus?o e políticas do assistencialismo
Pussetti,Chiara; Brazzabeni,Micol;
Etnográfica , 2011,
Abstract: the concept of social suffering has emerged in recent decades as a new paradigm in social sciences and as a particularly appropriated lens to look at the deep relationships between the subjective experience of malaise and the broader historical and social processes. this article and the contributions gathered in this dossier aim to address social suffering from three different basic points of view: 1) the paradoxical form by which power is taken from or given to the people; 2) the appropriation, by the institutions that create the conditions for that suffering to take place, of ?salvific? theories about the usefulness of suffering in order to achieve a greater and future well-being of humanity; 3) the evidence of the extent to which care and cure, the welfare-state, humanitarian protection, or even rights can be manipulated and intertwined in the definition and organization of the modalities of national belonging or exclusion, to the extreme reduction of the individual to his ?bare life?.
Sofrimento social: idiomas da exclus o e políticas do assistencialismo Social suffering: languages of exclusion and welfare policies
Chiara Pussetti,Micol Brazzabeni
Etnográfica , 2011,
Abstract: O conceito de sofrimento social emergiu nas últimas décadas como um novo paradigma das ciências sociais e como lente particularmente apropriada para olhar as rela es profundas entre a experiência subjetiva do mal-estar e os processos históricos e sociais mais amplos. O presente artigo, e os contributos aqui reunidos, pretendem abordar o sofrimento social sob três pontos de vista que consideramos fundamentais: 1) a forma paradoxal como é retirado ou atribuído o poder às pessoas; 2) a apropria o, por parte das institui es que criam as condi es para que o sofrimento tenha lugar, das teorias “salvíficas” sobre a utilidade do sofrimento com vista a um bem-estar maior e futuro da humanidade; 3) a evidência de quanto a assistência, os cuidados, o Estado-social, a prote o humanitária e até os direitos, podem ser manipulados e imbricados na defini o e organiza o das modalidades de perten a ou exclus o nacional, até ao extremo da redu o do indivíduo à sua “vida nua”.

From America to Africa: A Parallel in the Colonial and Federal Experiences  [PDF]
Didier Kombieni
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2015.310003
Abstract: The present article aims at exhibiting similarities within the colonial experiences and the federal experiences of America and Africa, despite the disparities with the two processes, then pointing out the stepping of the African countries despite their moving from the Organization of the African Unity (OAU) to the African Union (AU). In effect, this change could just be seen as an awkward imitation of the American successful federal process, from the Articles of Confederation to the United States of America, since America had been senior in that process. From then, further research might decide to project what Africans could use as a frame of reference in their American equivalent concerning the search for an integrated society, and an accepted democracy among the separate and equal nations.
Sabina das Laranjas: gênero, ra?a e na??o na trajetória de um símbolo popular, 1889-1930
Seigel, Micol;Gomes, Tiago de Melo;
Revista Brasileira de História , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-01882002000100010
Abstract: this paper takes as its starting-point an 1889 march organized by medical students on behalf of a street-vendor displaced from her position. it goes on to explore the ways in which that event was taken up over the course of the first republic, hoping to shed light on the twists and turns of the period's everyday racial and gender politics, and their relationship to the negotiation of national identity.
