Paulo Roberto Garcia Lucareli,Juliana Tais Estevam,Mário Oliveira Lima,Juliane Gomes de Almeida
Einstein (S?o Paulo) , 2008,
Abstract: Objective: To assess the joint’s kinematics of the trunk, hip, knee and ankle in the sagittal plane during the postures changes from quadrupedalism to bipedalism. Methods: Twelve volunteers participated in this study: six female and six males, aged 20 to 28 years. All volunteers performed three movements, starting with the right and other with the left. All were submitted to two-dimensional computerized movement analysis. Rresults: After statistical analysis, no statistically significant difference was found inter and intravolunteers in the two groups tested. Cconclusions: After examining the kinematic angle, it was possible to see that there is no single pattern of movement during the postures’ changes from quadrupedalism to bipedalism in healthy young adults. There were strategies for development and execution of the movement that showed some resemblance variability intravolunteers. However, intervolunteers there were no similarity between two groups, which enabled us to distinguish specific strategies to accomplish the tasks.

Abstract: Introduction: Hospital Recreation (HR) aims to reduce disasters caused by hospital admission. Objectives: To expose the behavior of children in cancer treatment (CA) during HR, and to verify which recreational activities generate the most adherence. Methods: The research is an experimental clinical trial of a non-probabilistic and intentional sample, with a quantitative and qualitative approach. Participants were 43 children (both sexes), with CA, admitted to the Pediatric Hospital Oncology CenterPHOC. The mean age of the children in fact was 7.5 years, and the data of mean and standard deviation between parenthood confer with the data of the results found during the research. The study lasted 12 weeks, with 38 sessions lasting 3 hours. Using games of activity: cognitive, manipulative, perceptive, creative and cooperative. Inclusion criteria: 1) being hospitalized in the PHOC, of the city of Natal; 2) being released by the medical team to participate in the activities. Children who were on special care in the ICU were excluded from the study. The behavior of the children was evaluated by the observation matrix proposed by Urie Bonfenbrenner, approached by Krebs and Koller. At

Abstract: The genetic structure of a Brazilian loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) breeding population, represented by 120 open-pollinated families, was determined using Bayesian inference and genotypes of 15 microsatellite (simple sequence repeat (SSR)) loci in 1,130 seedling progeny. The 120 maternal parents had been phenotypically selected about 15 years ago for wood volume in five different forestry plantations (FPs) in the south of Brazil. Additional selection for wood volume, based on a previous progeny test, was applied to the first best (i) and second best (ii) tree per block within each family. We adopted a procedure of “learning samples” to find the most likely number of inferred genetic clusters ( ) or ancestral populations. The first hypothesis that was rejected was that the most probable value of was coincident with the five FPs, since the FPs were, a priori, assumed to be from 5 different backgrounds or origins. It was used the familiar structure of the population to infer the genotypes of maternal ancestors. It was concluded that the maternal generation is the most likely to have been planted by the mixture of three different seed sources or origins, that there are five genetic groups ( ) in the population of progeny, and that they have been formed from the occurrence of assortative mating and also from a strong pressure in the selection within families. The trees with the best genetic value (i) maintained a higher genetic variability when compared to the trees of second best performance (ii), with higher values of heterozygosity and of numbers of maternal alleles that were kept the same. The migration model that best explains the results is the contact zone model. The population differentiation ( ) was 2-3 times higher in offspring than in relation to the maternal generation. The relevancy of the results and the way they were explored may be of value both for studies of population genetics, as for plant breeding programs, since they help monitoring the population's genetic variability during generations of selection. 1. Introduction Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) is a monoecious conifer, diploid tree with a predominant cross-fertilization. Its native range is in southeastern United States, and it was first introduced in Brazil in the 1940s. Its wood is used for industry panels and sawn timber. It is a fast-growing tree and is well adapted to temperate climate that makes it a good candidate for planting forests in southern Brazil. Among 5.74 million hectares (ha) of all existing forest plantations in Brazil in 2006, P. taeda occupies 1.52 million

Abstract: Os Coleópteros podem ser encontrados nos mais variados habitats terrestres e até aquáticos, com isso se alimentam de toda a sorte de matéria vegetais e animais encontradas pelo mundo. Com tanta diversidade, para se compreender melhor sua biologia e seus hábitos alimentares eles foram categorizados em cinco grupos tróficos: carnívoros, detritívoros, herbívoros, fungívoros e algívoros. Visando identificar as famílias e os hábitos alimentares em Coleoptera adultos, foram realizadas coletas na fazenda da EMPARN–Jiqui (Empresa de Pesquisa Agropecuária do Rio Grande do Norte), em quatro áreas, sendo um Fragmento de Mata Atlantica e três monoculturas: cajueiro an o precoce, coqueiro an o verde e coqueiro híbrido gigante. O tempo foi de 26 semanas consecutivas de 1o de janeiro a 1o julho de 2005. Foi utilizada para a captura dos Coleoptera em cada área uma armadilha do tipo Malaise, na qual foram colecionados 1544 indivíduos de trinta famílias nas quatro áreas amostradas, assim distribuídos: fragmento de mata com maior número de insetos e famílias respectivamente, 692 indivíduos e 28 famílias, seguida pelo coqueiro híbrido gigante com 533 indivíduos e 20 famílias, cajueiro an o precoce com 184 indivíduos e 15 famílias e por último o coqueiro an o verde com apenas 135 indivíduos e 18 famílias. Enquanto que entre os cinco grupos tróficos, quatro foram encontrados: herbívoros, compreendendo 14 famílias; carnívoros, com 9 famílias; detritívoros, 5 famílias; e fungívoros, com apenas 4 famílias; onde as cinco famílias mais numerosas s o herbívoras e juntas representam 64% de todos os coleópteros amostrados, e o remanescente de mata tem o maior numero de famílias herbívoras. Com isso o Fragmento de mata demonstra ter uma grande diversidade de entomofauna, sendo um mantenedor e distribuidor mesmo cercado por monoculturas.Wealth of Families and Alimentary Habits in Beetles Captured in the Farm of EMPARN- Jiqui, Parnamirim/RN. The Beetles can be found in different terrestrial and aquatic habitats and feed of a large variety of vegetal and animal substances deriving from the environment. Searching to understand this high diversity and its alimentary habits they had been categorized in five trophic groups: carnivorous, detritivorous, herbivorous, fungivorous and algivorous. Aiming to recognize these groups, identify families and its alimentary habits in adult beetles, collects were done at the EMPARN – Jiqui farm, a experimental farm placed near the city of Natal, the principal city at Rio Grande do Norte State. Four areas were studied: an Atlantic forest fragment, a precoc

Abstract: this work deals with the biodegradation of blends of poly(b-hydroxybutyrate)/starch and poly(b-hydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate)/starch. the blends were obtained by evaporation of the solvent in the mixture of the polymers in chloroform. tests were carried out in presence of micro-organisms which acted as biodegradation agents. the blends were consumed as carbon substrate and the production of co2 was evaluated in the process. in addition, the polyesters' mechanical properties were reduced by the incorporation of starch in its structure. (1h) nmr and infrared spectroscopy detected some characteristic polyester degradation groups in the polyesters' chemical structure, thus confirming the alteration suffered by it.

Abstract: The objective was to evaluate the practice of self-care of patients with mechanical heart valve prosthesis. A descriptive, cross-sectional study developed in two outpatient valvopathies of teaching hospitals of Fortaleza/CE, from October 2013 to January 2014. The sample consisted of 127 patients with mechanical heart valve prosthesis. It was held an interview using instrument based on the Theory of Orem’s Self-Care and Brazilian Guidelines for Valvular Heart Diseases. The data were presented in tables and charts. Results: Universal self-care practices of larger adhesion: body hygiene (97.6% washed-haired, daily-bath 92.1%); oral hygiene (brushing teeth before sleeping, 87.4%); fluid intake (drinking-water 95.2%); food intake (salt intake ≤ 2 g/day, 92.1%, fruit and vegetable consumption 79.5%); intestinal eliminations (without blood or mucus—96%, non-parasitic 94.4%); urinary elimination (no blood nor pus-96.8%, urination 4 to 6 times a day, 96%). As self-care developmental requirements predominated: never used illegal drugs, tobacco, alcohol, or stopped at the discovery of the disease (70%). As self-care health deviation requirements we have: making use of certain medication at the right dose (95.2%); attending medical appointments (cardiologist—92.1%; nursing—84.2%); INR control (identifies signs of bleeding— 85.8%). We conclude that patients did not perform all recommended self-care practices, being necessary to establish strategies to reduce the self-care deficit.
