Adaptive Behaviour on the Portuguese Curricula: A Comparison between Children and Adolescents with and without Intellectual Disability  [PDF]
Sofia Santos
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.57059

The main objective of this study was to assess and compare the adaptive behaviour level of children and adolescents with and without intellectual disability trying to understand how the differences in this area could be influenced by contents and curricula. The sample was composed by 589 children and adolescents with and without intellectual disabilities (both ages 6 to 16, randomly selected from special and regular schools, respectively). The Portuguese version of Adaptive Behaviour Scale was used and administered through an interview, to a proxy who knew the individual being evaluated. Controlling for age, gender, diagnosis, and living area we found that there were statistical significant differences between both groups on most of adaptive behaviour domains in all variables. One of the conclusions is that curricula in special and regular schools differ a lot on contents and in participation activities within the community and that might be one of the causes of the non-skills acquisition by the children and adolescents with intellectual disabilities.

A Matrix Approach to the Socioeconomic Activity of a Country  [PDF]
Susana Santos
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.85075
Abstract: A Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) is presented as a tool to study the socioeconomic activity of a country. This activity involves the monetary or nominal flows that are measured by the National Accounts, as well as production (organized in factors, industries and goods and services) and institutions (organized in households, general government, non-financial and financial corporations, non-profit institutions serving households, and rest of the world). In order to contribute to the definition of a methodology that can improve the knowledge of the different aspects of this activity, the potentialities of a SAM for its reading and interpreting are explored, as well as for carrying out experiments regarding its functioning. Through a SAM-based approach, how to construct more or less complex networks of linkages of the above mentioned flows is shown, from which structural features can be evidenced and the associated multiplier effects studied. Following an application to Portugal, it is shown that a numerical version of a SAM, enables an empirical description of the origin, use, and distribution of income, whereas, an algebraic version of a SAM allows one to carry out, for example, a deeper study of the multiplier effects associated with the institutional distribution of income. The crucial role of the factors of production accounts is identified in this study, namely when they establish the link between the generation and the distribution and use of income. In this process, the important role the complementary details that the Input-Output Matrix (IOM) can add is also identified. Thus, being the generation of income, the result of the output of goods and services and the associated costs, on the one hand, an industry by industry IOM can add details regarding domestic and imported intermediate consumption by and between industries and, on the other hand, a product by product IOM can add details regarding the domestic and imported intermediate consumption of goods and services.
Review: The Molecular Basis of Resistance in Mycobaterium tuberculosis  [PDF]
Lorena Cristina Santos
Open Journal of Medical Microbiology (OJMM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojmm.2012.21004
Abstract: Tuberculosis is a serious global public health problem and its high prevalence is strongly associated with the increase of drug resistance. This steady increase in the frequency of M. tuberculosis strains resistant to one or more agents commonly used to treat tuberculosis has drawn worldwide attention to understanding the molecular basis of resistance in M. tuberculosis. TB resistance is a great concern in the antibiotic resistance pandemic due to the high risk of death, as patients can remain infected for months or years and also because of the difficulty of the treatment. A molecular understanding of the series of events that render M. tuberculosis multi-drug resistant is very important in order to find a fast and appropriated diagnosis as well as a new target for new drugs.
The Higher Education System in Argentina. Networks, Genealogies and Conflicts  [PDF]
Santos Sharpe Andrés
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.618200
Abstract: The present manuscript aims to identify the genealogies, understood in a Foucaultian perspective, which leads to the actual Higher Education System in Argentina, by distinguishing how series of events are organized, distributed, organized in terms of institutional relations, signifying chains in the social amalgam and educational networks. This analysis will allow understanding the hierarchical relationships between higher education institutions and how the differences on cultural and curricular traditions and history also motivate (though not impose) the differences on the students and on policies. Finally, it is as well an accurate description of the Higher Education System in Argentina with a strong emphasis on universities.
Electron-Domain Wall Interaction with a Ferromagnetic Spherical Domain Wall  [PDF]
Leonardo dos Santos Lima
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2016.713148
Abstract: The interaction between an electron with a three-dimensional domain wall was investigated using the Born’s expansion of the S scattering matrix. We obtain an influence of the scattering of the electron with the ferromagnetic domain wall in the spin wave function of the electron with the aim to generate the knowledge about the state of the electron spin after the scattering. It relates to the recent problem of generation of the spin polarized electric current. We also obtain the contribution of the electron-wall domain interaction on the electric conductivity \"\", through the wall domain, where we have obtained a peak of resonance in the conductivity for one value of \"\" .
O ensino de recrea o: repensando algumas práticas
Edmilson Santos dos Santos
Movimento , 2001,
Abstract: Thispaper aims at analyzing the topics by which the books which suggest practical activities in recreation justify certain procedures and authorize certain academic practices as valid. To reach this result 22 books dealing with child recreation were analyzed. The strategies used by experimental literature to build truth on the discipline of Recreation are subjected to the separation between theory and practice, the backing up of the child's heteronomy and the simplification of reality.

An Empirical Model for Dinitrogen Gas Emission from Inland Waters  [PDF]
Elizabeth Sikar, Marco Aurelio dos Santos, Ednaldo Oliveira dos Santos
Atmospheric and Climate Sciences (ACS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/acs.2019.91001
Abstract: The motivation to calculate this empirical model resulted from often observing—at the time disconcerting—excess dinitrogen gas (N2 concentration > background concentration) in bubble-gas emission samples, collected primarily for the purpose of carbon budget research, from Brazilian rivers and reservoirs sampled during roughly 100 field surveys lasting 4 days each on average and executed between years 2000 and 2012. We model the (serendipitously) measured dinitrogen gas above environmental concentration (N2aec) escaping in bubbles from Brazilian rivers as a function of dissolved nitrogen (N) in water. To this model, we mathematically add a pre-existing model of diffusively emitted denitrified dinitrogen (also as a function of dissolved N) from streams in the United States of America (USA). The resulting model predicts denitrified dinitrogen water-air emission from inland waters in the USA, China and Germany.
Foucault and Social Science
Sociedad (Buenos Aires) , 2006,
Abstract: twenty years after foucault?s death, special emphasis is made on his contributions to the field of social sciences. firstly, the practice of the sort of criticism that implies reflecting about knowledge from some place where action is possible, in post-modern times. foucault?s elucidation of the human sciences, whose theoretical genealogy he traces back to kant?s was ist der mensch? sheds light on a question whose historical answer has been provided from an anthropological standpoint that led the way to the so-called human sciences. he also shows the social demands that are, concurrently, their condition of possibility. and, last but not least, this paper speaks of his standing and lucidity to point to ways without turning them into recipes, inviting us to find the courage of thinking by ourselves.
?Filosofías en la aldea multiétnica?
Enfoques , 2010,
Abstract: the present text intends to discover the existence of philosophy in the thinking of native american people, on the basis of the experience of encounter and cohabitation with different ethnic groups of brazil. arguments are proposed in favor of the presented thesis and some of the characteristics of these philosophies will be illustrated, comparing and contrasting them, from an intercultural philosophical perspective, with some principles or assumptions of the western rationality.
