Abstract: the scope of this study was to estimate calibrated values for dietary data obtained by the food frequency questionnaire for adolescents (ffqa) and illustrate the effect of this approach on food consumption data. the adolescents were assessed on two occasions, with an average interval of twelve months. in 2004, 393 adolescents participated, and 289 were then reassessed in 2005. dietary data obtained by the ffqa were calibrated using the regression coefficients estimated from the average of two 24-hour recalls (24hr) of the subsample. the calibrated values were similar to the the 24hr reference measurement in the subsample. in 2004 and 2005 a significant difference was observed between the average consumption levels of the ffqa before and after calibration for all nutrients. with the use of calibrated data the proportion of schoolchildren who had fiber intake below the recommended level increased. therefore, it is seen that calibrated data can be used to obtain adjusted associations due to reclassification of subjects within the predetermined categories.

Abstract: pm2,5 and pm2,5-10 samples were collected at s?o josé dos campos (s?o paulo) from february 2004 to february 2005. during this time there were two periods of drought, one lasting for 25 consecutive days and a second one for 38 days. the later exhibited higher pm concentrations values than the first one. data were divided into two groups, one comprising all measurements carried out during the 63 days without rain (dry period) and a second one comprising the remaining data (regular period). the pm2,5 and pm2,5-10 average concentrations were respectively 23 ± 7.5 and 19 ± 7.9 μg m-3 during dry period and 14 ± 7.9 and 13 ± 7.9 μg m-3 during regular period. there was a day-of-week variation with highest average concentrations on wednesday (pm2.5) and thursday (pm2.5-10) and lowest on sunday. the pm2,5-10 exhibited the most pronounced variation suggesting an association with vehicular emissions. during both dry and regular periods, average so4-2 and nh4+ concentrations were about 5 times higher in the fine than in the coarse fraction. pm2,5 ionic concentrations, especially that of k+, were higher in the dry period compared to regular one (except for cl-, na+ and mg2+). hierarchical cluster analysis and backward air mass trajectories indicate that during the dry period no3-, so42-, nh4+ and k+ associated with pm2.5 are significantly influenced by continental sources.

Abstract: Water samples were collected with monthly frequency from April 2007 to March 2009 at five sampling points in the Cabe a River and two points in Passa Cinco River, both tributaries at the Corumbataí River Basin, SP, and the distribution of metals Al, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb , Zn, Ca and Mg was evaluate. These elements were quantified by atomic emission spectrometry and the results were analyzed by multivariate statistical technique (principal component analysis), relating the values with the dry and rainy seasons. The metals Cr, Cu and Ni were not detected and Cd and Pb were detected in 8.3% and 10.1% of the samples, respectively, and the values were above those permitted by CONAMA Resolution 357/2005 for Class 2 Rivers. The values of Fe and 36.9% of the values for the Al also exceeded the limit established by legislation. These two metals are strongly influenced by soil characteristics of the studied area. Zn concentrations were below the limit from standard from CONAMA Resolution, but the presence of this element can be related to the lack of riparian vegetation and intense agricultural occupation, especially with sugar cane. Only six samples have values above the limit established by legislation. The highest values of Ca were observed in the rainy season in sampling points located in areas of exploitation of lime and sugar cane cultivation in which liming is frequent. = Amostras de água foram coletadas, com frequência mensal no período de abril de 2007 a mar o de 2009, em cinco pontos de amostragem no rio Cabe a e dois pontos no rio Passa Cinco, ambos tributários na bacia do rio Corumbataí, SP, para avaliar a distribui o dos metais Al, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn, Ca e Mg. Esses elementos foram quantificados por meio de espectrometria de emiss o at mica e os resultados foram analisados pela técnica estatística multivariada (análise de componentes principais), relacionando os valores com os períodos seco e chuvoso. Os metais Cr, Cu e Ni n o foram detectados e o Cd e o Pb foram detectados em 8,3% e 10,1% das amostras, respectivamente, e os valores estavam acima do permitido pela Resolu o CONAMA 357/2005 para rios de classe 2. Também estavam em desacordo com essa legisla o os valores de Fe e 36,9% dos valores encontrados para o Al. Esses dois metais s o fortemente influenciados pelas características pedológicas da área estudada. As concentra es de Zn n o extrapolaram os limites, mas a presen a desse elemento pode estar relacionada com a falta de matas ciliares e intensa ocupa o agrícola, principalmente com a cultura canavieira.

Abstract: The study of spatial variability of soil attributes is important in areas under different uses and management. The moisture and soil resistance to penetration are considered an indicative parameter of soil physical quality. The objective of this work to study the spatial variability of total porosity, soil resistance to penetration and moisture in an area of rotational grazing sheep. The experiment was conducted in a Yellow Ultisol with a sandy texture in the layers of 0- 0.1, 0.1-0.2 and 0.2-0.3 m. For the determination of properties and soil resistance to penetration was defined a grid, with regular intervals of 30 m, total of 13 points. The total porosity (TP) and the gravimetric soil moisture (SU) were obtained by collecting undisturbed samples (Uhland soil sampler) and disturbed samples, respectively. The soil resistance to penetration (PR) was determined at each point using an electronic georeferenced penetrometer. The results showed that TP had a low variation coefficient in all studied layers. The SU in all evaluated layers and the PR in layers 0-0.1 and 0.1-0.2 m showed a medium variation coefficient. The PR in layer 0.2-0.3 m showed a high variation coefficient showing the average distribution with a high heterogeneity in the data. The attributes TP, PR and SU showed a weak spatial dependency index (SDI) in all evaluated layers. The PR increases as the TP and the SU has a smaller influence on the soil. O estudo da variabilidade espacial de atributos do solo é importante em áreas sob diferentes usos e manejos. A umidade e a resistência do solo à penetra o s o consideradas um parametro indicativo da qualidade física do solo. Objetivou-se com este trabalho estudar a variabilidade espacial da porosidade total, resistência do solo à penetra o e da umidade em uma área de pastejo rotacionado de ovinos. O experimento foi conduzido em um Argissolo Amarelo de textura arenosa nas camadas de 0-0,1, 0,1-0,2 e 0,2-0,3m. Para a determina o dos atributos e resistência do solo à penetra o foi delimitada uma malha, com intervalos regulares de 30 m, perfazendo um total de 13 pontos. A porosidade total (PT) e a umidade gravimétrica foram obtidas através das coletas de amostras indeformadas (amostrador do tipo Uhland) e deformadas, respectivamente. A resistência do solo à penetra o (RP) foi determinada em cada ponto, utilizando um penetr metro eletr nico georreferenciado. Os resultados mostraram que a PT apresentou um coeficiente de varia o baixo em todas as camadas estudadas. A US em todas as camadas avaliadas e a RP nas camadas de 0-0,1 e 0,1-0,2m apresent

Abstract: 2,3,4,6-Tetra-o-acetyl-1-[4-(2-hydroxyethyl)-1H-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl]-β-D-glucopyranose was prepared and reacted with several acids, either commercially available or prepared. These included, aliphatic or aromatic acids (phenylacetic acid derivatives, benzoic derivatives), palmitic acid and the protected amino acids N-(benzyloxycarbonyl)glycine and N-(tert-butyloxycarbonyl)-phenylalanine. Two other acids, 2-(3-bromopropoxy)benzoic acid and 2-(5-bromopentoxy)benzoic acid (analogues of salicylic acid were synthesized), whose preparation is also described in this work. The esterification was performed either with N,N'-dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCC)/4-dimethylaminopyridine (DMAP) or by reacting the acyl chlorides with the alcohol in the presence of triethylamine. The products were isolated in fair yields and fully characterized by the usual analytical techniques.

Abstract: purpose: to assess the validity and reliability of self-reported height, weight, and body mass index (bmi) to diagnose the nutritional status of adolescents. methods: the study included 360 public school students of both genders, with ages ranging from 10 to 15 years. adolescents self-reported their weight and height, and these values were later obtained directly by interviewers. the validity of bmi based on self-reported measures was calculated using sensitivity and specificity indexes, and positive predictive value (ppv). agreement between self-reported and measured bmi was evaluated using kappa's weight coefficient, the lin correlation coefficient, and bland-altman and lin's plots. results: both girls and boys underestimated their weight (-1.0 girls and boys) and height (girls - 1.2 and boys - 0.8) (p < 0.001). bmi presented moderate agreement between measured and self-reported values. sensitivity of estimated bmi based on reported measures to classify obese subjects was higher for boys (87.5%) than it was for girls (60.9%), whereas specificity was higher for girls (92.7%) than it was for boys (80.6%). ppv was high only for classification of normal-weight adolescents. conclusions: self-reported measures of weight and height in adolescents do not present valid measures; therefore, they should not be used to replace measured values. additionally, we observed that 10% of obese boys and 40% of obese girls could have remained unidentified if we had used only self-reported measures, emphasizing the effects of the low reliability of self-reporting.
