"?Se mueve la niebla con nosotros?": personajes y vanguardia en María Luisa Bombal
Echenberg, Margo;
En-claves del pensamiento , 2010,
Abstract: upon being asked to lengthen her novel la amortajada to at least two hundred pages, maría luisa bombal opted not for a literal translation, but rather wrote the shrowded woman (1947). this article looks at the additions to the novel in english in relation to the evolution of the main character both in this novel and in la amortajada, a novel written in spanish and published by the prestigious editorial sur in buenos aires ten years earlier. bombal's prose in english in the added chapters of the novel contrasts with her lyrical style in spanish that skill-fully portrays both the desire and sense of lack suffered by the protagonist. as such, the english language novel is a more conventional work. moreover, the new chapters of the shrowded woman focus not on the protagonist but rather on secondary characters, rendering the romantic entanglements more complicated and verging on the melodramatic. the study of the new segments of the novel written in english proves them not only to be superfluous in terms of the development of the main character but in fact partly responsible for impoverishing the novel. this same conclusion, nevertheless, suggests just how bombal's prose in spanish is poised on the avant-guard.

Older Adults’ Explanatory Models of Colds and Flu  [PDF]
Margo-Lea Hurwicz, Margaret Rose
Health (Health) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/health.2015.79133
Abstract: Systematic data collection and analysis techniques were used in Los Angeles to discover older adults’ shared explanatory models (EM) of the causes, prevention, symptoms, treatment and consequences of late life illnesses, including influenza and the common cold. Recorded narratives also were analyzed to illustrate similarities and differences in shared cultural knowledge of these illnesses. Consensus analyses results suggest that shared EM of influenza and the common cold are similar. Participants identified both illnesses as contagious, caused or exacerbated by bad weather, but not the result of lifestyle, aging or heredity. Other shared cultural knowledge includes that both illnesses can be treated with home remedies, over-the-counter medications and medical care; both illnesses cause discomfort but are not serious, life-threatening or disabling. Despite the similarities and the apparent merging of the two illnesses in popular thought, many older adults do distinguish them, based on symptom patterns and severity, as revealed in their transcribed narratives. Consistent with other studies, participants attribute gastrointestinal symptoms to influenza but not to colds. They do not understand the potential role of lifestyle, age and chronic conditions in etiology and onset, and they are not concerned with their vulnerability to the potential sequelae of influenza. Public health education explaining the effects of lifestyle on susceptibility and vulnerability to the flu, how to distinguish and appropriately treat colds and the flu, and when to contact physicians, is recommended for older adults. Mixed method studies can prove useful at the planning stages of such interventions.
Reclaiming American Indian Women Leadership: Indigenous Pathway to Leadership  [PDF]
Margo Hill, Mary Ann Keogh Hoss
Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2018.73013
Abstract: There was no identified leadership model for American Indian women leaders. Through an exhaustive review of leadership styles it was identified that the Centered Leadership approach lends itself to the culture of American Indian Women. The components of the Centered Leadership approach include: utilizing personal strengths, managing energy, positive framing, relationship building, and collaborating with others to take advantage of opportunities. Based on the review of the literature and native women’s leadership styles, the concepts of the Centered Leadership Model were utilized to develop “Native Women Leadership: Indigenous Pathway”. Prior to European contact, native women held positions of leadership, shared in decision making and owned property. Today Native women leaders and managers are reclaiming their decision making authority to improve the lives of their nations. The Native Women Indigenous Pathway has not come without barriers and discrimination. The Centered Leadership approach assists in the examination of the American Indian woman’s pathway to decision making. Native women find themselves living in two worlds and must navigate expectations and responsibilities by switching between mainstream American and tribal values. How a native woman decides to negotiate these two worldviews is part of what creates her individual identity and her leadership style. A Native American Leadership Indigenous Pathway model is proposed.

La chapelle de la résidence universitaire Jean-Zay à Antony (Hauts-de-Seine) par Eugène Beaudouin : matériau traditionnel de l’architecture religieuse et création contemporaine
Florence Margo-Schwoebel
In Situ : Revue de Patrimoines , 2009, DOI: 10.4000/insitu.5517
Abstract: Après avoir mené à Antony la construction de la résidence universitaire Jean Zay en dix-huit mois (1954-1955), grace à des procédés de construction industrialisés, Eugène Beaudouin compléta son projet d’une chapelle indépendante, réalisée selon des procédés traditionnels et consacrée en 1961. Dans cette chapelle Sainte-Croix, l’architecte renouait avec une certaine approche historiciste, sans pour autant rompre avec la création contemporaine. Son go t affirmé pour la prédominance du dessin s’y conjuguait à un jeu subtil sur la notion de vérité du matériau , chère à l’architecture de la seconde moitié du XXe siècle. Mais le parti pris architectural semi-souterrain lui permettait surtout de développer un espace liturgique dramatisé, autour de la symbolique du baptême, en rapport direct avec les grands projets contemporains d’architecture religieuse. Using industrialised construction techniques, the architect Eugène Beaudouin was able to complete the building of the Jean Zay university residence, at Antony, in eighteen months, between 1954 and 1955. After completing this hall of residence, the architect then designed an independent chapel, built with traditional techniques and consecrated in 1961. In this Sainte-Croix chapel, Beaudouin renewed a certain historicist approach although he did not turn his back on contemporary creation. His pronounced taste for the predominance of design was associated with a subtle play on the notion of ‘the truth of the material’, one of the key architectural precepts of the second half of the 20th century. But the half-underground architecture also allowed him to create a dramatised liturgical space, around the symbolism of baptism and in relation to other contemporary projects in religious architecture.
