Abstract: In this paper, we intend to make a few remarks about a specific episode occurred in the Brazilian Belle époque - the emergence of the arrival halls and the so-called "Polish Jews", coming from Eastern Europe, and they landed here because of the promises of marriage, but who would eventually become prostitutes in the cities of S o Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. All this is thematized in the narrative Madame Pommery, by Hilário Tácito.

Abstract: For the 1990-1998 period, Switzerland reported an annual sink strength of Swiss forests of 4500-6000 Gg CO2. In its latest submission in 2000, newly available national forest inventory (NFI) data were used to refine earlier estimates. The same NFI data can also be used to provide extrapolations for the near future. No carbon sequestration values have been reported to date for forest soils. The Swiss government will provide funding for a number of research activities under the umbrella of COST E21, ranging from modeling studies of carbon storage in Swiss forests to an evaluation of joint implementation methods.

Abstract: objectives: to investigate the influence that demographic determinants, socioeconomic determinants, chronic diseases, and functional capacity have on self-rated health among elderly persons (60 years and older) living in the city of s?o paulo, s?o paulo, brazil, and to investigate the existence of differences between men and women in terms of their self-rated health. methods: the study was carried out using data collected in the city of s?o paulo as part of a project called health, well-being, and aging in latin america and the caribbean (the "sabe project"). we analyzed data on 2 135 elderly individuals (58.6% women; mean age, 69.4 years; median age, 68.0 years). the dependent variable was self-rated health (good or poor). the following independent variables were considered: (1) demographic ones (age, sex, marital status, and living arrangements (whether the elderly person lived alone or with others)), (2) socioeconomic ones (schooling and income), (3) the number of chronic diseases (hypertension, arthritis or rheumatism, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, asthma, bronchitis or emphysema, embolism or stroke, and cancer), and (4) functional capacity. to estimate the association between self-rated health and the independent variables and to study gender differences, a multiple binary logistic regression analysis was performed. results: the presence of chronic diseases in association with gender was the strongest determinant of self-rated health among the elderly in s?o paulo. among men with four or more chronic diseases, they were 10.53 times as likely to characterize their health as poor; among women with four or more chronic diseases, the ratio was 8.31. functional capacity, schooling, and income were also strongly associated with self-rated health, and the influence of age was significant. the elderly women were more likely to report good self-rated health than were men when the women or men either had no chronic diseases or had two or more. conclusions: our result

Abstract: The discussion in this paper turns around the causes, impacts and unfolding of two very meaningful events that took place during the initial period of the Brazilian Republic, in the first decade of the 20th century. These events, whose historiographical production is considerably heterogeneous, were called the Vaccine Insurrection (1904) and the Whip Insurrection (1910). The discussion focus on the analysis of song lyrics composed in the epoch or in subsequent periods. Five lyrics are analyzed: three about the Vaccine Insurrection and two about the Whip Insurrection. The songs about the first insurrection are: Rat, rat (1904); Yellow Fever (1907) and Compulsory Vaccination (1904). The ones about the second insurrection are: The claimers (1910) and The master of ceremonies of the sea (1975).
Growth-Mortality Relationships in Pi?on Pine (Pinus edulis) during Severe Droughts of the Past Century: Shifting Processes in Space and Time

Abstract: The processes leading to drought-associated tree mortality are poorly understood, particularly long-term predisposing factors, memory effects, and variability in mortality processes and thresholds in space and time. We use tree rings from four sites to investigate Pinus edulis mortality during two drought periods in the southwestern USA. We draw on recent sampling and archived collections to (1) analyze P. edulis growth patterns and mortality during the 1950s and 2000s droughts; (2) determine the influence of climate and competition on growth in trees that died and survived; and (3) derive regression models of growth-mortality risk and evaluate their performance across space and time. Recent growth was 53% higher in surviving vs. dying trees, with some sites exhibiting decades-long growth divergences associated with previous drought. Differential growth response to climate partly explained growth differences between live and dead trees, with responses wet/cool conditions most influencing eventual tree status. Competition constrained tree growth, and reduced trees’ ability to respond to favorable climate. The best predictors in growth-mortality models included long-term (15–30 year) average growth rate combined with a metric of growth variability and the number of abrupt growth increases over 15 and 10 years, respectively. The most parsimonious models had high discriminatory power (ROC>0.84) and correctly classified ~70% of trees, suggesting that aspects of tree growth, especially over decades, can be powerful predictors of widespread drought-associated die-off. However, model discrimination varied across sites and drought events. Weaker growth-mortality relationships and higher growth at lower survival probabilities for some sites during the 2000s event suggest a shift in mortality processes from longer-term growth-related constraints to shorter-term processes, such as rapid metabolic decline even in vigorous trees due to acute drought stress, and/or increases in the attack rate of both chronically stressed and more vigorous trees by bark beetles.

American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2014.520308
Abstract: This study aimed to assess the resistance of grain from two varieties of maize landraces in initial breeding in Bom Jesus-PI, with respect to S. zeamais attack. Seeds of two maize landraces were used: purple straw maize from two different origins (São Paulo (SP) and Espírito Santo (ES)) and Peruvian purple maize. The experimental design was completely randomized with four replications. The data for each response variable were subjected to analysis of variance, applying the F-test (p ≤ 0.05), and when significant differences were found, there was a comparison of means by Tukey test (p ≤ 0.05). The statistical analyses were performed using the software SAS®. In a free-choice test and bioassay for evaluating the nutritional index (no choice test), maize varieties differed significantly by Tukey test and the cultivar SP was considered resistant, while the cultivars purple and ES were considered susceptible.
