Energy Balance in a Patch of the Atlantic Forest in São Paulo City, Brazil  [PDF]
Frederico Luiz Funari, Augusto José Pereira Filho
Journal of Water Resource and Protection (JWARP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jwarp.2014.69076

The aim of this work was to characterize and to bring into relationship of the net radiation with the latent heat flux equivalent to water (mm) in a patch of Atlantic Forest within the metropolitan area of Sao Paulo (RMSP). The estimation of the latent heat flux (LE) was made by the energy balance equation with the Bowen ratio. Measurements of net radiation and psychometrics gradients were made. Soil heat flux (G) was measured by temperature sensors in two depths. Measurements were made at Park of Science and Technology of Sao Paulo University (CIENTEC), Sao Paulo, Brazil, between 2011 and 2013. Results indicated that evapotranspiration varies seasonally and the amount of water evaporated exceeds 3.0 mm·day-1 in spring/summer and in autumn/winter the amount is approximately 1.0 mm·day-1. The evapotranspiration is increased under RMSP urban climate conditions with higher air temperature and lower moisture especially in summer season.

Use of biofeedback (BFB) in the treatment of fecal incontinence after surgical correction of anorectal malformations by posterior sagital anorectoplasty (PSARP)
Martins, José Luiz;Pinus, José;
Sao Paulo Medical Journal , 1997, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-31801997000300005
Abstract: objective: to evaluate biofeedback(bfb)responses to rehabilitation techniques and physical exercises in incontinent or partially continent anorectal malformations patients after posterior sagital anorectoplasty (psarp). design: prospective study. setting: pediatric surgery - department of surgery - unifesp-epm. patients:the authors report on 14 patients with anorectal malformations (4 with partial fecal incontinence after primary psarp; 6 with fecal incontinence after primary psarp; 3 with partial fecal incontinence after secondary psarp; and 1 with fecal incontinence after secondary psarp). all patients were rehabilitated via a bfb program of exercises in order to improve the function of the anal sphincteric muscular complex for a period of 1 -3 years. main outcome measure: clinical and manometric control. results: after bfb, of 4 partially continent patients after primary psarp, 3 became continent; of 6 incontinent patients after primary psarp, 4 became continent; of 3 partially continent patients after secondary psarp, 1 became continent,1 showed no improvement and 1 became incontinent (infection + abscess + fibrosis + important anorectal stenosis). the incontinent patient after secondary psarp showed no improvement. conclusion: the authors concluded that bfb, used at the appropriate time with patient collaboration, is an important complement to the anatomical reconstruction of anorectal malformations in order to achieve good development and contractile functioning of the sphincteric muscular complex.
Clinical and manometric postoperative evaluation of posterior sagital anorectoplasty (PSARP) in patients with upper and intermediate anorectal malformations
Martins, José Luiz;Pinus, José;
Sao Paulo Medical Journal , 1996, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-31801996000600004
Abstract: psarp is currently the most widely-used surgical technique for surgical correction of high and intermediary anorectal malformations, but there is much controversy in the literature about the postoperative evaluation of these cases. we studied 27 cases of anorectal malformations operated with psarp from clinical and manometric aspects in order to analyze: 1) fecal continence; 2) the relationship between fecal continence and the associated sacral anomalies and; 3) the relationship between the postoperative manometric evaluation and fecal continence. from the analysis of 27 cases of high and intermediary anorectal malformations, we concluded that: 1) fecal continence was achieved in 48.14 percent of the cases; partial fecal continence in 25.92 percent; and fecal incontinence in 25.92 percent of the cases; 2) the presence of fecal incontinence was directly related to the association of sacral anomalies and; 3) anorectal manometry is a useful test to evaluate the patients operated by psarp, due to the existence of a relationship between the manometric results and the degree of fecal continence.
Tratamento das cefaléias
Gherpelli, José Luiz Dias;
Jornal de Pediatria , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S0021-75572002000700002
Abstract: objective: to perform a bibliographic review about headache treatment in childhood and adolescence. sources: articles were searched through medline database using the terms: migraine, or headache, childhood, or adolescence, and treatment, during the period between 1966 and 2001. review articles and case reports were excluded. only articles dealing with pharmacological, and non-pharmacological treatment of primary headaches were selected. summary of the findings: a total of 104 articles were found; only those reporting results of the case-control studies, or drug vs. placebo, either blind, or open, and that included children, or adolescents were selected. conclusions: only a few controlled studies about the headache treatment were found in the pediatric age group, although primary headaches are frequently seen in clinical practice. therefore they constitute an important subject to be studied. only a few drugs were adequately studied, and in a small number of studies. both acute and prophylactic treatment were addressed.
Língua, discurso e política
Fiorin, José Luiz;
Alea : Estudos Neolatinos , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-106X2009000100012
Abstract: after discussing the meaning of the word politics, this paper shows that there are four possible approaches to the issue of the relationships between language, discourse and politics: a) the intrinsic political nature of language; b) the relations of power between discourses and their political dimension; c) the relations of power between languages and the political dimension of their usage and; d) linguistic policies. this paper addresses only the first two of these items. languages have an intrinsically political nature because they subject their speakers to their order. the acts of silencing operationalized in discourse manifest a relation of power. the spread of discourses in the social space is also subject to the order of power. the use of language may be the space of pertinence, but is also that of exclusion, separation and even the elimination of the other. therefore, language is not a neutral communication tool, but it is permeated by politics, by power. because of the dislocations that it produces, literature is a form of swindling language, unveiling the powers that are imprinted on it.
Linguagem e interdisciplinaridade
Fiorin, José Luiz;
Alea : Estudos Neolatinos , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-106X2008000100003
Abstract: since language is multifaceted and heterogeneous, interdisciplinarity is natural to linguistic studies. in this article, after demonstrating that, i present two basic ways of doing science. one is ruled by the principle of exclusion, whereas the other is ruled by the principle of participation. the former leads to specialization, whereas the latter leads to the surpassing of specialization. from that, i discuss the advantages and problems of disciplinarity, and present the reasons why nowadays interdisciplinarity is a positive universal in scientific and pedagogical discourses. also, based on etymology, i discuss the concepts of interdisciplinarity, multidisciplinarity, pluridisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity. finally, i examine the bonds between linguistics and other sciences, by drawing a brief history of the relations between linguistics and literature in brazil.
Liberdade e conflito: o confronto dos desejos como fundamento da ideia de liberdade em Maquiavel
Ames, José Luiz;
Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2009000100009
Abstract: the article works out the thesis that to the excessive desire of the powerful for the absolute appropriation/domination it is opposed a not less excessive and absolute desire from people in order not to be appropriated/ dominated: two desires of a distinct nature which are neither the desire for the same things nor the desire for different things, but desires in which the act of desiring is different. taking into account that each desire aims at its absolute effectiveness, each one of them tries to impose itself universally becoming doubly absolute: for one side it is inclined to the absolute domination (the powerful) or to the plain liberty (the people); for the other side, tries to impose itself to the whole political body. each desire is only sustained by its heterogeneous desire. each one pursues its own purposes whose realization will be the ruin of all collective life. good institutions and good laws ensure liberty as long as they are capable to prevent the powerful or the people to consummate its desire or abandon its own desire to assume the other's. however, having inscribed the order of law in the disorder of dissent, machiavelli discarded the idea of an institutional order as a definitive solution to the disorder of dissent. consequently, no law or institution is able to definitively resist the risk of corruption. this requires a periodic return to the origins: the experience of the constitutive moment of the original violence which, exposing men to risks, restores the initial reputation and strength of states and institutions.
Fenomenologia e crise da arquitetura
Furtado, José Luiz;
Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2005000200022
Abstract: architecture faces technical and aesthetical problems since it exists in the space between engineering and art. this situation turns architecture into an endless task, a science made in a ceaseless dialogue between two traditional antagonistic values. art and engeneering seek to base architecture in foundations that are outside its own concepts, either when they try to base it in creative improvisation of individuals in their urban lives or when they try to put its roots in several different cognizances about humankind to which it should respond. this introductory essay intends to take us to the experience of inhabitation which constitutes the ontological "region" where this science/art departs from.
Religi?o e política no pensamento de Maquiavel
Ames, José Luiz;
Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2006000100003
Abstract: for machiavelli, religion is valued not by the importance of its founder, the content of its teachings, the truth of its dogmas or the significance of its rites. it is not the essence of what really matters but its function and importance for collective life. religion teaches to recognize and respect political rules through the religious commandments. this collective norm could assume the outer coercive aspect of the military discipline as well as the inner persuasive character of civic and moral education for the production of collective consensus.
Corrected transposition of the great arteries with several associated anomalies in a 68-year-old patient
Jacob, José Luiz Balthazar;
Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0066-782X2001001000005
Abstract: few patients with corrected transposition of the great arteries survive past 50 years of age because of the association with congenital defects, development of total atrioventricular block, and right ventricular dysfunction. we report the case of a male patient with dextrocardia in situs solitus and corrected transposition of the great arteries associated with a wide atrial septal defect and severe pulmonary valvar and subvalvar stenoses. the patient also developed a large aneurysm on the pulmonary artery, total atrioventricular block diagnosed 8 years earlier, symptoms of dysfunction of the systemic ventricle in the previous 2 years, insufficiency of the left atrioventricular valve, and aortic regurgitation. despite all these associated anomalies, the patient developed class iii cardiac decompensation only at the age of 68 years, which makes this case a rarity. the patient was clinically treated, and was discharged from the hospital in good condition.
