Maria del Carmen Caama?o, Olga Patricia García, María del Rocío Arellano, Karina de la Torre-Carbot, Jorge L. Rosado

Abstract: Objective: The purpose of this study was to identify the best predictors of dyslipidemias in Mexican obese children using different anthropometric and body composition measurements. Methods: In an observational, cross-sectional study, 905 children from 5 schools were measured for weight, height, waist and hip circumference, and triceps and subscapular skinfolds. A fasting blood sample was taken from a random sub-sample of 306 children to determine lipid profile. Abnormal total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides, total cholesterol to HDL ratio, and LDL to HDL ratio, were determined. Logistic regressions and ROC analysis were carried out to determine the best anthropometric predictors of these risk factors. Results: Prevalence of elevated total cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL cholesterol was 14%, 56% and 58%, respectively. In logistic regressions, BMI and triceps skinfold had the highest odds ratios to predict elevated total cholesterol (1.05, 95%CI: 0.97 - 1.14; 1.07, 1.01 - 1.13, respectively), triglycerides (1.19, 1.11 - 1.27; 1.12, 1.08 - 1.17, respectively), LDL cholesterol (1.11, 1.04 - 1.18; 1.09, 1.05 - 1.14, respectively), total cholesterol to HDL ratio (1.06, 1.00-1.14; 1.07,1.03-1.12, respectively) and LDL to HDL ratio risk (1.08,1.01-1.15; 1.07, 1.03-1.12, respectively). After BMI and triceps skinfold, subscapular skinfold also predicted dyslipidemias, except for low HDL; both skinfolds had a narrower odds ratio confidence interval than BMI. In ROC analysis, subscapular skinfold was the best predictor of elevated triglycerides with an AUC ≥ 0.7. Conclusion: Anthropometric measurements are not strongly associated with dyslipidemias in Mexican children. However, since triceps and subscapular skinfolds were better predictors than other anthropometry measures, they may be a simple way to predict dyslipidemias in Mexican children.

Abstract: objectives: to compare the tubal sterilization trough subumbilical incision performed with local anesthesia versus spinal anesthesia in the postpartum period. methods: we perform 196 tubal sterilization procedures after a vaginal delivery. the study group 1 (local anesthesia) included 136 women and the study group 2 (spinal anesthesia) 60 women. results: the study showed no statistical significant difference between the two groups, in the obstetrics and anthropometries characteristics, neither in the average surgical time, the pain score (measured with the analogue visual scale), or postoperative short term complications. the only statistically significant difference was found in the period of time between the vaginal delivery and the sterilization procedure (30 hours in group 1 and 62 hours in group 2, p<0.0001), and in the hospitalization number of days (2.2 days in group 1 and 3.9 days in group 2, p<0.0001). conclusions: the transumbilical tubal sterilization under local anesthesia in postpartum period lowers the hospital stay and the time between childbirth and the surgical procedure an allowing the mothers an early return to their home, with less cost for the health system
A Procedure for Diagnostically Modeling Extant Large-Scale Assessment Data: The Case of the Programme for International Student Assessment in Reading  [PDF]
Jinsong Chen, Jimmy de la Torre
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.518200
Abstract: Cognitive diagnosis models (CDMs) are psychometric models developed mainly to assess examinees’ specific strengths and weaknesses of a set of skills or attributes within a domain. Recently, several methodological developments have been added to the CDM literature, which include the development of general and reduced CDMs, various absolute and relative fit measures at both the test and item levels, and a general Q-matrix validation procedure. Building on these developments, this research proposes a systematic procedure to diagnostically model extant large-scale assessment data. The procedure can be divided into four phases: construction of initial attributes and Q-matrices, construction of final attributes and Q-matrix, evaluation of reduced CDMs, and crossvalidation of the selected model. Working with language experts, we use data from the PISA 2000 reading assessment to illustrate the procedure.
Masas, pueblo y democracia: Un balance crítico de los debates sobre el nuevo populismo

Revista de ciencia política (Santiago) , 2003, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-090X2003000100005
Abstract: durante las últimas décadas se ha dado un verdadero renacer de los estudios sobre el populismo. los trabajos recientes se diferencian de los análisis del llamado populismo clásico porque en lugar de estudiarse al populismo como un régimen ligado a un tipo particular de políticas macroeconómicas, se lo analiza como un estilo o estrategia política (conniff 1999; knight 1998; weyland 1996, 2001; roberts 1995). el objetivo de este trabajo es discutir una serie de problemas no resueltos en los debates sobre el populismo clásico que han reaparecido en los trabajos sobre el neopopulismo. estos problemas son: 1) la relación entre el líder y sus seguidores, en especial la visión de éstos comomasas desorganizadas; 2) los diferentes usos de la categoría ?el pueblo?; y 3) las relaciones entre el populismo y la democracia liberal

Abstract: Este artículo estudia las relaciones ambiguas entre el populismo y la democracia a través de los rituales y discursos de Abdalá Bucaram cuando regresó de su exilio en Panamá. El artículo discute los diferentes significados del término el pueblo , las paradojas de la representación populistas y los significados de la democracia para el populismo.

New Student Profiles: Creativity in Competent Digital Natives and Routine Experts
Aníbal de la Torre
Revista de Universidad y Sociedad del Conocimiento , 2009,
Abstract: Matters that until now were exclusive to pedagogic debate, such as teaching-learning models or the kinds of skills and abilities needed by the youth of today, have now entered a wider discussion arena, as it is society as a whole that expects professional and human profiles to be more adapted to current times. To achieve this, we should not assume that our youths possess some natural ability to act in the new technological environments, as it is probably their communicative needs that give rise to using these environments. Modest practical ideas and solid methodological referents are needed which will allow us to open up the limited world that is digitally evolving around our young people. The area of development they are about to enter has just started to shift towards globality and their responsibility as digitally-aware citizens is acquiring an importance still to be discovered but which we can no longer remain oblivious to.
