Manufacturer-Dealer Relationships. The Influence of Trust and Commitment to Technological Interface Adoption  [PDF]
José R. Concha
Modern Economy (ME) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/me.2013.49A003

The steep increase in the number and variety of exchange relations, the increased complexity and uncertainty of the business environment cannot be managed without the presence of interpersonal and/or interorganizational trust and relationship commitment. Manufacturer firms have to pay close attention to developing and maintaining relationship commitment and dealers’ trust. The value of such efforts is the most apparent when high levels of competition threaten market shares and the stability of the dealers’ network. This empirical study shows that trust and relationship commitment are important assets for the technological interface adoption and bring significant savings for the manufacturer and dealer.

Boolean Automorphisms of a Hypercube Coincide with the Linear Isometries  [PDF]
Eberto R. Morgado, Marco V. José
Advances in Pure Mathematics (APM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/apm.2014.48047

Boolean homomorphisms of a hypercube, which correspond to the morphisms in the category of finite Boolean algebras, coincide with the linear isometries of the category of finite binary metric vector spaces.

Current energy crisis and its economic and environmental consequences: Intense human cooperation  [PDF]
Marcelo S. Sthel, José G. R. Tostes, Juliana R. Tavares
Natural Science (NS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2013.52A036

In this paper, the evolution of the energy use by human society is discussed, relating the energy, environmental and economic crisis, which appear to be closely linked. With the widespread use of fossil fuels since the industrial revolution, a major environmental problem was generated: the climate changes. The economic consequences of climate changes are discussed in Stern (2006). Possible solutions to confront climate change are presented in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report (2007). Some of these solutions are based on technological development, while others do not directly depend on the technology (paradigm shifts). Faced with the needs of a new paradigm suggested by the IPCC, the recent concept of sustainable triangular cells (2012) was introduced. The geometric representation of triangular cells, which can be linked to form a regular hexagon, is used to demonstrate a sustainable society, where human cooperation prevails. This model is in line with one of the pillars of the Third Industrial Revolution, indicated by Rifkin, where an intense collaboration between individuals in human society is suggested.

Uso do óxido nítrico em pediatria
Fioretto, José R.;
Jornal de Pediatria , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0021-75572003000800007
Abstract: objective: to review the literature on inhaled nitric oxide and to describe its main clinical applications in pediatrics. sources of data: a 10 year literature review with selection of the most important publications on inhaled nitric oxide, using the medline and cochrane systematic review databases. summary of the findings: this review was organized as follows: introduction; metabolism and biological effects; clinical applications; dosage, gas administration and weaning; precautions and side-effects. inhaled nitric oxide use was described in persistent pulmonary hypertension and hypoxia of the newborn, acute respiratory distress syndrome, primary pulmonary hypertension, heart surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, sickle cell anemia, and bronchospastic disease. conclusions: inhaled nitric oxide is a therapeutic approach with wide clinical applications in pediatrics. its use is safe when administered in pediatric intensive care units under strict monitoring. as a pulmonary vasodilator, nitric oxide has beneficial effects on gas exchange and ventilation. controlled trials, focusing on early gas administration should be performed under many clinical conditions, especially acute respiratory distress syndrome.
Os desafios para a saúde
Carvalheiro, José R.;
Estudos Avan?ados , 1999, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40141999000100002
Abstract: this paper emphasizes the economic nature of health care at a time when the tertiary sector is the one fastest growing in economy and health care is the most dynamic. it touches upon the public health crisis considering health problems, methods and services. the epistemic community concept is used to analyse the current situation. two trends are identified, exhibiting distinct conceptual paradigms: one in public health, the other in health economics. the main agencies for the formulation of those paradigms are, respectively, the world health organization and the world bank. on the national level, the 1988 constitution provided a universal unified health system (sus - sistema unificado de saúde), complete in its activities, decentralized and fully engaged, under social control. the sus has been established according to the operational rules and the compensation mechanisms represented by its intermanaging committees. an issue not yet fully settled is the sus finacing.
The chemistry of antipredator defense by secondary compounds in neotropical lepidoptera: facts, perspectives and caveats
Trigo, José R.;
Journal of the Brazilian Chemical Society , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-50532000000600002
Abstract: chemical defense against predation in butterflies and moths has been studied since nineteenth century. a classical example is that of the larvae of the monarch butterfly danaus plexippus, which feed on leaves of asclepias curassavica (asclepiadaceae), sequestering cardenolides. the adults are protected against predation by birds. several other substances may be involved in chemical defense, such as iridoid glycosides, cyanogenic glycosides, glucosinolates, pyrrolizidine and tropane alkaloids, aristolochic acids, glycosidase inhibitors and pyrazines. the acquisition of these substances by lepidopterans can be due to sequestration from larval or adult host plants or de novo biosynthesis. many lepidoptera are known to be unpalatable, including the butterflies troidini (papilionidae), pierinae (pieridae), eurytelinae, melitaeinae, danainae, ithomiinae, heliconiinae and acraeinae (nymphalidae), and arctiidae moths, but knowledge of the chemical substances responsible for property is often scarce. this review discusses mainly three topics: field and laboratory observations on rejection of butterflies and moths by predators, correlation between unpalatability and chemicals found in these insects, and bioassays that test the activity of these chemicals against predators. perspectives and future directions are suggested for this subject.
Noticias bizantinas en Espa?a: El caso de San Isidoro de Sevilla
Marín R,José;
Temas medievales , 2009,
Abstract: in his chronicon, st isidore of seville reports the invasion of the balkans by slavs in times of the emperor heraclius. this fact has led us to pose ourselves the question about how it was possible that this spanish author could be informed of events taking place not only far from spain, but which are scarcely mentioned in the byzantine sources. was it possible that the bishop received trustworthy information of events then taking place in the east? the author of the article believes that this was indeed the case and a short analysis of the visigothic-byzantine relations can answer this question, as well as who could be transmitters of such information and how st isidore was able to come by it.
Dos Tiempos para la Utopía: Festivales de Cine Latinoamericano
Román R,José;
Aisthesis , 2010, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-71812010000200002
Abstract: the two latin american film festivals that were carried out in vi?a del mar in 1967 and 1969 were connected by their themes: the bonds between films and politics. the exhibited films come from movements known as the ?new cinema?, which was opposed to the commercial films screened in movie theaters all around the continents. most of them were trying to represent the social and politic reality in their countries. in parallel to the films screening, the invited filmmakers debated about themes that were relevant to context of the continent in those years (social inequality, cultural dependence, dictatorial regimes, police violence) as well as the aesthetics, cultural and political proposals in which every country based its cinematogrphic experiences. thus, the following article will analyze the most important films and theoretical proposals that characterised those screening, as well as the invited latin american filmmakers.
Seria Huet o modelo do abade filosófico da nota B do verbete Pirro?
Maia Neto, José R.;
Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2009000200005
Abstract: bayle's text most often cited as indicative of his most radical skepticism is remark b of the article pyrrho of the dictionary historical and critical. the skeptical philosophy exhibted in this remark is dramatically presented by a catholic abbot in a dilogue with another abbot. the article brings together historical, biographical, bibliographical and philosophical considerations that make plausible the hypothesis that pierre-daniel huet (1630-1721) was the historical model for bayle's character. these considerations contribute to clarify the much controversial issue of the nature and scope of the skepticism exhibited in remark b of the pyrrho article.
O contexto religioso-político da contraposi??o entre pirronismo e academia na "Apologia de Raymond Sebond"
Maia Neto, José R.;
Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2012000200003
Abstract: in the apology for raymond sebond, montaigne launches a pyrrhonian attack on academic probability. however, montaigne does follow probability in the apology and other essays. in order to solve this exegetical problem i propose a double restriction of the attack. on the one hand, i show that it aims at philo of larissa's epistemic interpretation of the doctrine rather than at carneades' original practical conception. on the other hand, i place the attack on a very specific historical context. montaigne's pyrrhonian attack on probability is a polemical strategy offered to marguerite de valois, the sister of the catholic king of france and wife of the protestant leader henri de navarre, to be used in the religious controversies in her predominant protestant court at nérac. this context also solves other exegetical problems of the apology such as montaigne's paradoxical defense of sebond, the apparent contradiction between the replies to the two objections to sebond's book addressed by montaigne, and the problem of fideism.
