Measuring the Horizon: Objectivity, Subjectivity and the Dignity of Human Personal Identity  [PDF]
Francis J. Ambrosio, Elisabetta Lanzilao
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2013.34A006
Abstract: It is argued in what follows that “culture warfare” is symptomatic of an imminent threat to the continued sustainability of human culture as a whole. The nature of this threat can be characterized as trauma induced paralysis of the human cultural imagination, without which cooperative adaptation to potential credible dangers of self-induced species or even planetary life extinction is impossible. The structure of this paradoxical “possible impossibility” as the destiny of humanity is examined here within the context of an interpretive framework which is broadly characterized as “cultural genetics”. On the basis of a schematic and preliminary outline of that framework, a suggestion is made regarding the direction in which hope of avoiding that destiny might be sought.
An Investigation of the Secular Acceleration of Psychiatric Disorders  [PDF]
Sebastian Lemke, Sunka De Vries
Open Journal of Psychiatry (OJPsych) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojpsych.2015.51013
Abstract: Secular acceleration, for example an increase in height in groups of people over a period of time of more than a century, is a unique, perhaps “ecological” event. In the study presented here, historical patient files from the Jena Psychiatric Clinic were evaluated in relation to the problem of acceleration. A first sampling of 119 patient files for the years 1880-1890 revealed that, for children and adolescents up until the end of their twentieth year of life, the average age at the time of their first admission was 17 years. Compared to this, the first admission of a second sample of 132 patient records for the years 1985-1987 revealed a clearly younger average age at first admission of 11 years. This difference in age was found to be statistically significant. The heights of 14-year-old subjects from the city of Jena for the years 1880 to 1975 obtained from the literature showed a documented increase in height of almost 20 cm. The results of our investigation revealed that, in addition to physical acceleration, there was also an advancement of pathological mental processes in the course of a period of 100 years.
Germanus, Alban and Auxerre
Ian Wood
Bulletin du Centre d’études Médiévales d’Auxerre , 2009, DOI: 10.4000/cem.11037
Abstract: Our earliest information on the cult of Romano-British martyr Alban is to be found in the Vita Germani. According to Constantius, Germanus, together with his companion Lupus of Troyes, visited the site of the saint’s burial in the course of his first visit to Britain, generally dated to 429 . Constantius provides no detail of the visit, but this is supplied by early versions of the Passio Albani, the full est of which is the so-called T version – named after the fact that it survives in a Tur...

Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2015.615142
Abstract: Objective: To investigate the age at menarche, pubarche and telarche in a representative sample of residents of an urban zone of Leon, Guanajuato, Central Mexico and to evaluate the secular change of the age at menarche between 1985 and 2000. Methods: Using status quo and retrospective methods, menarcheal, pubarcheal and telarcheal status of girls 8 - 17 years of age (n = 1093) were determined. Multiple regression analysis and logistic regression were used to determine factors that were related to or predictive of age at menarche. Results: Median ages for menarche, pubarche and telarche in our studied sample were: 11.9 ± 0.04; 11.13 ± 1.25 and 10.84 ± 1.34 years, respectively. A direct correlation was found between the age of menarche of adolescents and that of their mother (p < 0.001) and sisters (p < 0.001), in addition to the girls’ waist circumference (p = 0.001), but an indirect correlation was found with the girls’ hip circumference (p = 0.004). We demonstrated a clear secular tendency towards an earlier onset of menarche by comparing our results (11.9 ± 0.04) with data from 1985 (12.8 ± 1.3) for adolescents from the same city. Conclusion: We demonstrated a clear reduction in age at menarche of approximately 0.75 year/decade, higher than Tanner’s finding in 1962, but similar than that of Malina et al. in 2004.
Four decades of European geomagnetic secular variation and acceleration
Giuliana Verbanac,Monika Korte,Mioara Mioara Mandea
Annals of Geophysics , 2009, DOI: 10.4401/ag-4605
Abstract: Geomagnetic secular variation, the generally slow, continuous change in the core magnetic field, is characterized by occasional rapid variations known as geomagnetic jerks. Recent studies on magnetic data obtained by satellites with a good global coverage suggest that more rapid and smaller scale features than previously thought occur in the field change. We have taken advantage of the comparatively high density of geomagnetic observatories in Europe and have derived a regional model for the detailed study of secular variation and acceleration over the past four decades from 1960 to 2001 by means of improved and regularized spherical cap harmonic analysis. We show the improvements to our regional model over a global model. All the known jerks are seen in our model, but further times with rapid changes in secular variation exist. Moreover, times of zero acceleration in general do not occur simultaneously in all magnetic field components, although this nearly is the case in 1969.6 and 1982.2. Secular variation and acceleration show very dynamic patterns indicating rapid and complex causal processes in the Earth’s fluid core.

Abstract: the sequential change of ss in 6-16 year old chilean schoolchildren between 1986 and 1994 was analized. random samples were analyzed for sex, school year and economic/social status. sample sizes in 1986 were 4 331 girls, 3 354 boys, in 1991 1 620 girls, 1 675 boys and in 1994 were 1 437 girls and 1 822 boys, taken from the cities of santiago, calama, antofagasta and temuco. height for age below the 95% according to who standards was classified as ss. regardless of sex ss decreased progressively from 1986 to 1994 (27.8%, 24.9%, 13% in girls, 31.2%, 29.6%, 18.2% in boys respectively). classifying the children according to age, girls less than 10 yrs, or 10 and above, and boys less than 12 yrs or 12 and above, the percentage of children with ss was lower in younger children (27.8%, 24.9%, 13% in girls, 31.2%, 29.6%, 18.2% in boys) compared to that in older children (41.1%, 39.8%, 25.5% in girls, 44.2% 41.7%, 26.2% in boys) with an overall decrease in all 4 age groups. the trends in ss suggest an improvement in environmental conditions, but this growth tendency has not yet stabilized, the older group being the worst affected. it is necessary to investigate other possible environmental deficits in order to improve health programmes for an improved expression of the childrens genetic potential

Marmo, Denise Barbieri;Zambon, Mariana Porto;Morcillo, André Moreno;Guimarey, Luis Manuel;
Revista da Associa??o Médica Brasileira , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-42302004000400027
Abstract: background: the purpose of this study was to evaluate the secular trends in height, weight and weight/height of schoolchildren from the city of paulínia, s?o paulo, brazil between 1979/80 and 1993/94. methods: anthropometric measurements (height, weight and weight/height) of 1,903 children (6.5-12.5y); 51.5% m: 48.5% f, from paulínia public schools were compared with data from a previous study carried out in the same city 15 years earlier. decade increments were calculated and data was smoothed by the technique of means and medians (3h3h3). results: height and weight mean values were always greater than those of the previous study, with positive increments. height increments ranged from 1.13 to 5.0 cm in boys and from 1.2 to 4.33cm in girls. weight increments ranged from 0.53 to 4.13kg in males and from 0.87 to 3.0kg in females. in the two studies, weight/height means were very similar for both genders. conclusions: increments in height and weight during this period are an indicator of development on the economical and health levels. a positive secular trend was also observed in developed countries after the 2nd world war and in the brazilian people.
Cor da pele, distin??es e cargos: Portugal e espa?os atlanticos portugueses (séculos XVI a XVIII)
Figueir?a-Rêgo, Jo?o de;Olival, Fernanda;
Tempo , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-77042011000100006
Abstract: this text shows how the lisbon political core and the colonial elites dealt with the color issue in the atlantic space, especially in respect to the provision of places and even to access to intermediate social distinctions; it investigates how the political core based its views on that theme in several chronologies; it also surveys whether in some locations the presence of native blood among higher social groups modified a simplistic perception of the chromatic variations. since the issue covered grosso modo the strong period (1570-1773) when the blood purity rules were in force in portugal, it discusses the possible connection / contamination between these two realities.
