Resources to visualize some paradoxes that happens in the planet Mercury
Esteban, Esteban
Revista Eureka sobre Ense?anza y Divulgación de las Ciencias , 2011,
Abstract: En este trabajo se exponen una serie de circunstancias muy curiosas que se producen en el planeta Mercurio, relativas al movimiento del Sol respecto a su horizonte. También se explica la manera de hacer un modelo que permita visualizar algunas de ellas y la forma de escenificar otras.
Optimal Selection and Allocation of Sectionalizers in Distribution Systems Using Fuzzy Dynamic Programming  [PDF]
Albornoz Esteban, Andreoni Alberto
Energy and Power Engineering (EPE) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/epe.2010.24040
Abstract: This paper describes a calculation strategy that allows determining the optimal number and placement of sectionalizing switches in MV radial distribution networks, in correspondence to technical, regulatory and economical aspects. A formulation that takes into account the investment, maintenance and power interruption costs has been developed, seeking for a reduction in total costs while taking care of the regulatory and technical aspects. A multicriteria optimization procedure allows incorporating in the calculating process various quality indicators which can be either global or individual indexes. This way of formulation makes the proposal flexible as well as applicable to allow including aspects that were not considered in previous papers. The solution methodology is mainly based on dynamic programming, fuzzy logic, heuristics and economic analysis techniques. Given its flexibility, the proposed tool is easily adapted to real distribution systems, by considering the individual requirements of each network. The solutions obtained in simulations are oriented to help decision-making for the operator.
Hypertrophic osteoarthropathy as the cause of situs inversus totalis: A case report  [PDF]
Esteban Grandy, Giuseppe Grandy
Open Journal of Internal Medicine (OJIM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojim.2012.24032
Abstract: Situs inversus totalis is a very rare anomaly. Even more, cases of situs inversus totalis plus hypertrophic osteoarthropathy. A woman presented with cyanosis, clubbing of fingers and distal edema. Chest examination revealed heart sounds at the right side and a heart murmur. Abdominal examination showed liver dullness in the left side. The X-rays showed dextrocardia and liver in the left side. The Upper digestive barium test showed the stomach in the right side, the barium enema showed caecum on the left. Treatment for heart failure improved the patient’s condition and she remained well. When she became pregnant, developed heart failure again and required admission. She was compensated and continued her pregnancy. 3 years later she developed heart and respiratory refractory failure, was admitted again and after few days she died. We report this case of situs inversus totalis in association with hypertrophic osteoarthropathy because of the rarity of this anomaly.
Thinking about Aging: Experience, Identity and Meaning among an Elderly Population in the Philippines  [PDF]
Rolando C. Esteban
Advances in Aging Research (AAR) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/aar.2015.45015
Abstract: The paper aims to know the idioms that the elderly use to describe and make sense of their experience of aging. It is based on ethnographic data gathered through the in-depth interview of 30 normal and community dwelling elderly in Marikina City, Metro Manila, Philippines in 2012-2013. The participants were chosen through compulsive sampling from the registry of 1385 senior citizens screened free from dementia. Their age ranged from 60 to 90 years, regardless of social class, gender, ethnicity, religion and other indices of difference. The interviews were transcribed, verbatim, and coded for the idioms, their meanings and contexts in which the elderly used them. The elderly communicate in idioms, which maybe basic to denote identity that obtains from aging or secondary in that they develop from the basic ones and help define identity further. The idioms relate to either continuity or discontinuity theory of aging or help rationalize what it means to be human and elderly.
Application of the New Moroccan Family Code in Spain (with a Gender Perspective)  [PDF]
Gloria Esteban de la Rosa
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2013.44019

The application of the Moroccan Family Code by Spanish legal operators is not simple, to the extent that it is not only a question of knowing its contents, but also, behind each of its articles and, relating to the institutions contained in the Code, there is a specific understanding of the world and, more specifically, family relations. The Spanish system of Private International Law is to serve as a “communication channel” between legislations which are beginning to coincide due to the new private international situations taking place in Spain, as a new foreign population begins to settle, in particular when it comes to female Moroccan immigrants. In these cases, Moroccan family law may be applied or considered by the Spanish authorities, favouring thus the recognition of decisions taken in Morocco.

Cultural Diversity, European Public Policy Exception and Family Law of Muslim Countries  [PDF]
Gloria Esteban de la Rosa
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2015.62015
Abstract: The recognition of cultural diversity as a value of the European Union Law is undoubtedly present in the current process of integration, which, in turn, is related to the maintenance of peace. Without prejudice to the treatment given by national regulations (Private International Law systems) of each Member State to the issue of cultural diversity existing in the current European society, it may be mentioned the positioning that has also been taken by the EU legislature of PIL on the treatment of said diversity. Tools used by the Private International Law system both for European Union Member States and for the European Private International Law system itself to give answers to this multiculturalism located in the territory that comprises the European Union Member States are discussed below. In particular, art. 10 of the Council Regulation (EU) no. 1259/2010, of 20 December 2010, implementing enhanced cooperation in the area of the law applicable to divorce and legal separation. This exception (public policy) will be practically operational in general when it comes to the implementation of the national system of an Islamic countries, because it may be considered that there is a difference between men and women in everything related to family relationships. The aim of this paper is to analyze the possibility of the “recognition method” as a clause for the interpretation of Private International Law to permit the application of foreign Muslim Law by European authorities in family cases and to avoid limping relationships.
Paradoxical Interplay of Viral and Cellular Functions
Esteban Domingo
Viruses , 2011, DOI: 10.3390/v3030272
Abstract: Some cellular editing functions can restrict the replication of some viruses but contribute to completion of the life cycle of others. A recent study has identified an isoform of the adenosine deaminase acting on RNA type 1 (ADAR 1) as required for embryogenesis, and as a restriction factor for a number of important RNA virus pathogens [1]. The dual implication of key cellular functions in the innate immunity against viruses, or, paradoxically, as mediators of virus replication is interpreted in the light of the concept of virus-host coevolution and tinkering proposed for general evolution by Fran?ois Jacob decades ago.
Eidos , 2008,
Abstract: this paper tries to show that there has been an evolution in paul ricoeur's concept of testimony and that also his first juridical definition is different from others of the same origin. to determine this point we will compare his definition with c.a.j. coady's. we will try to explain the motives, implications and limitations of its differences. then it will be established that in remembering, history and oblivion the philosopher leaves the juridical concept of testimony, which main issues are to be a declaration inside a debate, and prefers an other one that define it as a dialogical natural institution. our hypothesis is that this change was not due to phenomenical but to contextual causes.
Introducción a Ernst Bloch (a 125 a?os de su nacimiento)
Krotz, Esteban;
En-claves del pensamiento , 2011,
Abstract: ernst bloch's 125th birthday and a recent re-edition of his main work principle of hope are both good reasons to offer a brief introduction to this last century important philosopher's work. this article will frst present his main ideas in his biographic, intellectual and socio historical context to later introduce the concept of anticipatory consciousness as bloch's theory central guideline. the final part of this essay is dedicated to this "philosopher of utopia" influence and continuity.
Actualidades Biológicas , 2007,
Abstract: an assessment of floristic assemblage of aquatic vascular plants was carried out in the lagartococha riberine system of the reserva de producción faunística cuyabeno (rpfc) in the amazon basin of ecuador. the aims of the study were to determine the structure and composition of aquatic vegetation within riparian environments, aimed to recognize conservation targets for monitoring programs and identify the species habitat preferences applying non parametric statistic analysis. twenty eight transects were established across the riverine system, located over different types of vegetation. the similarities in aquatic plants distribution were analysed with jaccard index, while the similarities of cover patterns were analysed by steinhaus index. the changing patterns of environment conditions in the sampling places were correlated by a principal component analysis. three kinds of vegetation were determined: gramalote, dominant in lotic environments; mandial, growing only in delfincocha and imuya lakes and riparian vegetation spread along the most lentic environments (lakes). twenty eight aquatic vascular plants were recorded including amphibians and submersed life forms. only five species have widespread distribution across the river system and three species were restricted to one kind of environment. four life forms were recorded: the rooted floating plants, which are dominants (43% of the overall species), the emergent rooted plants (32%), the free floating plants (14%) and the submersed rooted plants (11%). according with the species richness and the different kinds of vegetation which are growing in delfincocha and imuya lakes is necessary to consider those environments as a priority target of conservation in the area. moreover in those environments there are a few populations of cabomba furcata schult. & schult. f. (cabombaceae), hydrocotyle ranunculoides l. f. (apiaceae) y najas arguta kunth (najadacae) that are likely unique records for this riparian system.
