The most frequent types of disasters in Brazil are associated with extreme hydrological events. Adding to this situation, in Brazil, there are the extreme sociospatial discrepancies that are historically constructed. They leave marks in space, making specific areas, for political interest or not, more vulnerable to the different mentioned processes. To this extent, the public management should plan actions and, also, it may act in a more holistic way adding new trends, such as, the use of geotechnologies that are applied to environmental management in the realm of urban planning. From a case study in the city of Rio de Janeiro, this paper aims to contribute and draw attention to such issues. It may reach its target through pointing and spatially analyzing which areas are in the most critical situation related to the occurrence of extreme hydrological events. To achieve this goal, it was proposed a methodology to inventory the occurrence of inundation/flooding for a certain period, in this case 2001-2008. Besides, the methodology could systematize data and integrate them with other important issues for supporting the process of identification and analysis of the most critical areas. Historical aspects of occupation and the most vulnerable socio-environmental aspects were raised, too, in order to validate the highlighted areas. This integration was enabled concerning the support of geoprocessing techniques. The results of this integration subsidized the mapping and spatial analysis of the affected areas in the city and the criticality in relation to the extreme hydrological events. Finally, it was possible to observe that the identification of the most critical affected areas does not mean the exhaustion of the subject. The location of these areas is directly linked to the sample that was used as the basis for analyses. This data set only represents recorded events by the Municipal Civil Defense respecting the studied time frame. However, the results permit to take notes and raise relevant environmental questions about the roots and the occurred impacts that were originated from the extreme hydrological events, which have been observed in recent decades.

Abstract: objective: to describe the clinical cardiac manifestations and temporal evolution of marfan syndrome in children; to estimate the incidence of annuloaortic ectasia and mitral valve prolapse; and to evaluate tolerability and efficacy of beta-blockers in these patients. methods: during one year, 21children with marfan syndrome underwent serial clinical and echocardiographic examinations. echocardiograms assessed: the presence of mitral valve prolapse, aortic root diameter, mitral and aortic valves regurgitation, and aortic enlargement during beta-blocker therapy. eleven patients had two measurements of the aortic root taken one year apart. results: the children were asymptomatic throughout the study. mitral prolapse was found in 11 (52%) children. annuloaortic ectasia occurred in 16 (76%) patients and found to be mild in 42.8%, moderate in 9.5%, and severe in 23.8%. one of these patients underwent aortic valve replacement and repair of the ascending aorta by the bentall-de bono technique, with good results. heart rate decreased by 13.6% (from 85 to 73 bpm; p < 0.009) with the use of beta-blockers; however, aortic root diameter increased by 1.4 mm/year (p<0.02). one child could not be given beta-blockers due to bronchial asthma, and no significant side effects were observed in the remaining children, including one who also had bronchial asthma. conclusion: the children remained asymptomatic throughout the study, the use of beta-blockers led to a significant decrease in heart rate, and no significant adverse effects were observed. contrary to the literature, incidence of annuloaortic ectasia was high among the study population, greater than that of mitral valve prolapse, even during beta-blocker therapy.

Abstract: cheese yield, fat and dry matter transitions from milk pasteurized by the two pasteurization systems to the curd, as well as, the physical-chemistry characteristics of cheeses were evaluated. the statistical treatment was full randomly, with two treatments: pasteurization by high temperature short time system (htst) and direct steam injection (dsi), with six replications. the dsi system incorporated about 8,5% of water to the milk, having as consequence reduction (p<.05) in the total solids, in the fat and in the acidity of the pasteurized milk. larger transition of fat of the milk to the curd was observed, when this was pasteurized by the dsi system, it resulted in larger cheeses yield manufactured with milk pasteurized by this system. (8.48 liters of milk /kg of cheese), when compared to the htst system (9.54 liters of milk /kg of cheese). cheeses manufactured by the dsi system presented higher fat content and fat in dry matter (29.06 and 55.25%), compared to the htst system (27.02 and 49.88%), respectively. the dsi system provides expressive increases in the cheeses yield and, of the components of the milk it was conclude that the fat was the main responsible for this increase.

Abstract: A literatura psicológica tem referido especial interesse ao processo psicológico de monitoramento contínuo da experiência individual, ou mindfulness. Neste estudo, buscou-se adaptar e apresentar evidências de validade convergente e divergente para uma escala de autorrelato que visa a mensurar mindfulness, a Escala Filadélfia de Mindfulness (EFM). Participaram da pesquisa 703 adultos brasileiros, que responderam EFM e outras três medidas relacionadas a conceitos como autoconsciência e insight. A análise fatorial indicou a presen a de duas dimens es da EFM, relativas a dois componentes de mindfulness: Aceita o e Awareness. Essas dimens es apresentaram índices de consistência interna de 0,859 e 0,816, respectivamente. Os resultados também indicaram convergência entre o fator Awareness e os dados de autoconsciência enquanto autofoco, e divergência entre Aceita o e facetas mal-adaptativas da autoconsciência (ansiedade social e rumina o). Em consonancia com a literatura que refere haver uma faceta de mindfulness voltada à medita o, Aceita o apresentou também correla o positiva com Insight. La literatura psicológica ha tenido especial interés en el proceso psicológico de monitoreo continuo de la experiencia individual, o mindfulness.

Participaron de la investigación 703 adultos brasile os, que respondieron la EFM y otras tres medidas relacionadas a conceptos como autoconsciencia e insight. El análisis factorial indicó la presencia de dos dimensiones de la EFM, relativos a dos componentes de mindfulness: Aceptación y Awareness. Esas dimensiones presentaron índices de consistencia interna de 0,859 y 0,816, respectivamente. Los resultados también indicaron convergencia entre el factor Awareness y los datos de autoconsciencia como autofoco, y divergencia entre Aceptación y facetas mal adaptativas de la autoconsciencia (ansiedad social y ruminación). En consonancia con la literatura que refiere haber una faceta de mindfulness vuelta a la meditación, Aceptación presentó también correlación positiva con Insight. Current psychological research has paid special attention to the psychological process of continuous monitoring of inner experience, i.e., mindfulness. This study aimed to adapt and to present convergent and divergent validity evidence of a mindfulness self-report measure, the Philadelphia Mindfulness Scale (PMS). Data was based on the answers of

Abstract: The struggles?for land possession and deforestation were some results of the recent occupation process in the Amazon. Family farming was the target of land policies in the region, with recurring failures. Issues related to land governance and pro-poor policies have returned to the discussions, especially by the food production. This study aims to evaluate the relationship between the educational level, land access and sustainable land use among farmers in Acre State, Brazil, in the periods 1996/1997 and 2006/2007. Based on a sample, the methodology worked with variables related to the educational level, the access and the use of land, economic results and solid garbage. The results show that the higher educational level is directly related to the land access security and inversely proportional to sustainability in the land use type. Furthermore, production difficulties are leading to greater market dependence and, consequently, to increased generation of solid garbage, whose disposal may be better directed by improving the farmers’ education.

Abstract: Un estudio epidemiológico fue realizado con el objetivo de evaluar la utilización y potencial interacción farmacológica entre hierbas/plantas medicinales y fármacos antiretrovirales prescritos a pacientes infectados con el VIH en el Hospital Universitario de Brasilia (HUB). Un cuestionario fue elaborado abordando preguntas sobre las características sociodemográficas, el tiempo de diagnóstico, como los pacientes se enteraron de sus enfermedades, el tiempo de tratamiento con los fármacos antiretrovirales, y los efectos adversos más frecuentes, de acuerdo a que informaran los pacientes. De un total de 128 pacientes entrevistados, 52.3 % informaron utilizar plantas e/o hierbas medicinales. Entre los pacientes utilizando plantas medicinales o hierbas, 77 % no informaron al equipo medico acerca de sus prácticas del uso de plantas/hierbas medicinales, porcentual este elevado se comparado a otros estudios. Muchas de las plantas/hierbas medicinales pueden potencialmente presentar importantes interacciones farmacológicas con la farmacoterapia antiretroviral usualmente prescrita a los pacientes entrevistados.
