Abstract: the aim of this study was to characterize the sandfly fauna in a military training area situated in the "zona da mata" region of pernambuco state, brazil, where human cases of american tegumentary leishmaniasis (atl) had been observed, caused by leishmania (viannia) braziliensis. the occurrence of 16 sandfly species in the marshall newton cavalcanti military training camp (cimnc) indicates an important diversity of sandfly species in this study area. lutzomyia complexa was the most common species (51.36%) followed by l. choti (43.54%). all the captures were made in areas where training activities were conducted and where clinical cases had been detected in individuals performing training, following this period. the data relating the sandfly behavior to previous data in the same area provides strong evidence for the occurrence of an enzootic cycle of the parasite, and outbreaks followed the period of training activities in the remaining atlantic rain forest and secondary forest areas.

Human factors always affect maintenance performance, and in some cases, it’s critical to systems availability and reliability. Despite such importance, in so many cases, there’s no human reliability method applied to analyze maintenance tasks in order to understand better human factors influence in maintenance performance. There are several human analysis methodologies and regarding human factors, SLIM (Successes Likelihood Methods), SPAR-H (Standardized Plant Analysis Risk-Human Reliability Analysis Method) and Bayesian Net take into account such factors and may be a good approach to minimize human error. In order to propose a human reliability methodology to analyze maintenance tasks taking into account human factors, a case study about turbine star up tasks will be carried out. Therefore, different human reliability methods will be performed based on specialist opinion. Finally, the human error probability as well as drawbacks and advantages from different methods will be discussed to get a final conclusion.

Abstract: Canine cutaneous leishmaniasis by Leishmania braziliensis is a neglected, but widespread disease of dogs in South America. This paper describes clinical and hematological alterations in 17 L. braziliensis-infected dogs from Brazil. The most common hematological findings were thrombocytopenia (82.4%), anemia (70.6%), low packed cell volume (52.9%) and eosinophilia (41.2%). Twelve (70.6%) dogs displayed at least one evident physical alteration; 11 dogs (64.7%) presented skin lesions, four (23.5%) had weight loss and two (11.8%) onychogryphosis. L. braziliensis-infected dogs present clinical and hematological signs often observed in dogs infected by other pathogens. This indicates that veterinarians and public health workers should not consider the presence of non-specific clinical signs as diagnostic criteria for visceral leishmaniasis in dogs living endemic areas to avoid misdiagnosis and subsequent elimination of dogs infected by L. braziliensis. A leishmaniose cutanea canina causada por Leishmania braziliensis é uma doen a negligenciada, mas disseminada entre c es na America do Sul. Este artigo descreve altera es clínicas e hematológicas em 17 c es infectados por L. braziliensis do Brasil. As altera es hematológicas mais comuns foram trombocitopenia (82,4%), anemia (70,6%), baixo valor de hematócrito (52,9%) e eosinofilia (41,2%). Doze (70,6%) c es apresentaram pelo menos uma altera o física; 11 (64,7%) apresentaram les es cutaneas, quatro (23,5%) perda de peso e dois (11,8%) onicogrifose. C es infectados por L. braziliensis apresentaram altera es clínicas e hematológicas inespecíficas que s o comumente observadas em c es infectados por outros patógenos. Isso indica que veterinários e profissionais de saúde pública n o deveriam considerar a presen a de tais sinais clínicos como critério de diagnóstico para leishmaniose visceral em c es, em áreas endêmicas, no intuito de evitar um diagnóstico equivocado e a subsequente elimina o de c es infectados por L. braziliensis.

Abstract: this paper shows that the domestic controlled companies are more leveraged than the state controlled or than the foreign controlled ones, and that the formers make intensive use of short-term debt. the positive relation between tangible assets and long-term debt is consistent with the trade-off model's prediction. different from previous evidences, investment opportunities are positively related to leverage, which combines with an inverse relation to profitability to favor the pecking order model against the trade-off model. finally, and more interestingly, the higher sensitivity of domestic controlled firms' leverage to the analyzed factors seems to indicate that outsiders' rights are less protected by domestic insiders.

Abstract: A busca pela excelência na Gest o em Seguran a, Meio Ambiente e Saúde (SMS), passou a ser uma meta estratégica para as empresas que pretendem garantir participa o em um mercado cada vez mais competitivo e regido por uma sociedade a cada dia mais exigente. A implementa o de a es que visam a melhoria do rendimento humano tem sido considerada fundamental para o desempenho das organiza es que buscam a excelência, como forma de obten o da sustentabilidade dos negócios. Para aquelas que atuam em áreas que envolvem altos riscos tecnológicos, como o segmento petróleo e gás, isso se deve a constata o de que a falha humana representa uma parcela significativa das causas básicas dos acidentes industriais maiores, protagonizados por este segmento industrial ao longo das últimas três décadas. Entender e melhorar a intera o do conjunto homem– equipamento–sistema organizacional, denominado “fatores humanos”, e a busca de sua incorpora o aos processos, passou ent o a ser o desafio da industria neste novo milênio. Entende-se que esta incorpora o n o deve ser realizada de forma isolada, mas sim de forma estruturada e sistêmica via Sistema de Gest o de SMS. Através da revis o de literatura e a análise crítica do autor, este trabalho apresenta uma proposta de “estrutura conceitual” para a integra o dos “fatores humanos” ao modelo do sistema de gest o de SMS da International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (OGP), buscando contribuir para o alcance da excelência.
Extreme Rainfall Events over the Amazon Basin Produce Significant Quantities of Rain Relative to the Rainfall Climatology  [PDF]

Atmospheric and Climate Sciences (ACS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/acs.2014.42021

Although much effort has been made to characterize and understand extreme rainfall’s causes and effects, little is known about their frequency and intensity. Moreover, knowledge about their contribution to the total rainfall climatology is still minimal, especially over the Amazon where rainfall data are very scarce. In this paper we propose to classify extreme rainfall events by type and analyze their frequency and intensity over South America with a focus on the Amazon basin. Gridded daily data from the MERGE/CPTEC product over a period of 15 years (1998–2013) was used. An adaptation of Rx5d climate index was applied to select different kinds of extreme rainfall for the purpose of quantifying their frequency and intensity as well as their contribution to the accumulated rainfall climatology. According to the results, all kinds of extreme rainfall events can be observed over the studied area. However, the quantity of rainfall produced by each type is different, and consequently their percent contributions to the total accumulated rainfall climatology also differ. For example: in the Amazon region EET-I is responsible for 15% - 40% of the total accumulated rainfall. Moreover, in the Brazilian northeast there are regions where EET-I exceeds 40% of the total rainfall. In northeast Brazil EET-II is responsible up to 30% of the total accumulated rainfall. EET-III is responsible for 5% - 15% in the Amazon basin, 25% - 45% in northeast Brazil and 10% - 45% over Roraima State. Area-mean time variation shows that the quantity of rainfall extremes over the Amazon basin was reduced during the El Nino years of 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2010, while during the La Ni?a episodes of 1999, 2008
