Reducing Land Degradation on the Highlands of Kilimanjaro Region: A Biogeographical Perspective  [PDF]
Christine Noe
Open Journal of Soil Science (OJSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojss.2014.413043

In 2012, governments across the world adopted “The Future We Want” outcome document in Rio De Janeiro as a commitment to achieve a land-degradation-neutral world. This document reasserts the importance of sustainable land management in the top of the debates on sustainable development. This paper provides an overview of Tanzania’s preparedness towards achieving these global objectives. The paper is based on a keynote address which was presented in the conference on reducing land degradation on the highlands of Kilimanjaro Region in Tanzania. Using a biogeographical perspective, the paper assesses challenges of adopting programmatic approach to sustainable land management in Tanzania. It also presents some opportunities that exist through Global Mechanism of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, which promote actions leading to coordination, mobilization and channeling of financial resources to assist member countries to coordinate and sustain sustainable land management projects.

The practice of telemedicine and challenges to the regulatory authorities
M Kekana, P Noe, B Mkhize
South African Journal of Bioethics and Law , 2010,
Abstract: The practice of telemedicine is viewed as a possible solution to the human resources crisis in health care in South Africa and internationally. Reports on its successful implementation and combating of health-related problems are readily available from both developed and developing countries. Even though these reports indicate that telemedicine seems to have addressed the problem related to the shortage of health care personnel, it is still posing a challenge to regulatory authorities such as the Health Professions Council of South Africa. The regulatory authorities are there to ensure that quality health care service is delivered and that the patient will be protected from possible mismanagement by the health care practitioners involved. Misconduct can occur through improper clinical care or excessive billing. Policies and guidelines from both developing and developed countries were reviewed to highlight how telemedicine is regulated elsewhere. The focus was on the ethical implications of telemedicine practice. Telemedicine has proved itself to be a possible solution to the human resources crisis, especially in developing countries or where there are vast rural communities. Success of telemedicine has been reported in a number of developed and developing countries as a way of alleviating the human resources crisis and providing quality health care to needy communities.

Mountain Pass Theorem With infinite symmetry
Noe Barcenas
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: We extend a work of Bartsch, Clapp and Puppe on the Mountain pass theorems. We consider functionals invariant with respect to infinite discrete groups satisfying a maximality condition on the finite subgroups.
Nonlinearity, Proper Actions and Equivariant Stable Cohomotopy
Noe Barcenas
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: In this article we extend the classical definitions of equivariant cohomotopy theory to the setting of proper actions of Lie groups. We combine methods originally developed in the analysis of nonlinear differential equations, mainly in connection with Leray-Schauder theory, and on the other hand from developments of equivariant $K$-Theory by N.C. Phillips. We prove the correspondence with a previous construction of W. L\"uck by constructing an index. As an illustration of these methods, we introduce a Burnside ring defined in analytical terms. With this definition, we extend a weak version of the Segal Conjecture to a certain family of Lie groups and comment the relation to an invariant in Gauge Theory, due to Bauer and Furuta.
Twisted Geometric K-homology for Proper actions of discrete groups
Noe Barcenas
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: We define twisted equivariant K-homology groups using geometric cycles. We compare them with approaches using Kasparov KK-Theory and (twisted) group C*-algebras.
Genetic Algorithms for multimodal optimization: a review
Noe Casas
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: In this article we provide a comprehensive review of the different evolutionary algorithm techniques used to address multimodal optimization problems, classifying them according to the nature of their approach. On the one hand there are algorithms that address the issue of the early convergence to a local optimum by differentiating the individuals of the population into groups and limiting their interaction, hence having each group evolve with a high degree of independence. On the other hand other approaches are based on directly addressing the lack of genetic diversity of the population by introducing elements into the evolutionary dynamics that promote new niches of the genotypical space to be explored. Finally, we study multi-objective optimization genetic algorithms, that handle the situations where multiple criteria have to be satisfied with no penalty for any of them. Very rich literature has arised over the years on these topics, and we aim at offering an overview of the most important techniques of each branch of the field.
A review of landmark articles in the field of co-evolutionary computing
Noe Casas
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Coevolution is a powerful tool in evolutionary computing that mitigates some of its endemic problems, namely stagnation in local optima and lack of convergence in high dimensionality problems. Since its inception in 1990, there are multiple articles that have contributed greatly to the development and improvement of the coevolutionary techniques. In this report we review some of those landmark articles dwelving in the techniques they propose and how they fit to conform robust evolutionary algorithms
Leishmaniose tegumentar americana: casuística hospitalar no Rio de Janeiro
Fernandes, Nurimar C.;Morgan, Isabela;Maceira, Juan P.;Cuzzi, Tullia;Noe, Rosangela A. M.;
Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0365-05962004000400005
Abstract: background: american tegumentary leishmaniasis is widely found in brazil; the state of rio de janeiro (capital and hinterland) is an endemic area where the vector is found inside and outside houses. objectives: prospective study of 48 cases attended at the teaching hospital clementino fraga filho - ufrj, between 1990 - 2002. methods: all patients were submitted to skin or mucosa biopsy, montenegro skin test and otorhinolaryngologic examination; sbv (10 - 20 mg/kg) with 10, 30 and 90 doses was used in 44 patients; in 4 cases, amphotericin b (0.5 mg/kg/dose) until cumulative dosage of 30 - 50 mg/kg. results: 28 males and 20 females aged 10 - 89 years mostly infected in rio de janeiro (38 cases/79.1%) mainly presented ulcers in the extremities and involvement of nasal mucosa; 41 cases (85.4%) were reactive to the montenegro skin test (5 mm); 17 cases (35.4%) were positive for amastigotes in tissue sections; an inflammatory chronic granulomatous process was mostly seen. clinical cure was observed in 47 cases; one patient died on day 10 of treatment. conclusion: the study of american tegumentary leishmaniasis (hucff - ufrj) from 1990-2002 showed a well-known "status" considering epidemiological and clinical perspectives as well as therapeutic response to antimony (sbv) and amphotericin b.
