Background: Adolescents who rely on social aid networks tend to be more socially competent and enjoy higher levels of quality of life than those who interact only with their own limited groups of family and friends. In this light, the present study aimed to measure social capital and analyse its possible relation to adolescents’ quality of life. Methods: This is a cross-sectional analytical study with 363 adolescents from the Brazilian NGO. The instruments used included a short Portuguese version of the Integrated Questionnaire to Measure Social Capital (SC-QI) from the World Bank and its abbreviated Portuguese version from the World Health Organization Quality of Life Bref (WHOQoL-Bref) used to measure the quality of life. To measure social capital, the present study chose to use a segmentation analysis, along with the Two-Step Cluster method, applying Euclidian distance and the criteria of centroid aggregation. The Mann-Whitney test was used to compare the scores of WHOQoL-Bref domains among the clusters, at a significance level of 5%. Results: The segmentation analysis resulted in two clusters, with 160 (44.1%) adolescents classified as Low Social Capital (LSC) and 178 (49%) classified as High Social Capital (HSC). Participation in activities for the good of the community (p < 0.001), opinion regarding the differences between people in the community (p = 0.002), and number of community meetings (p < 0.001) constituted the decisive variables for determining the separation of the clusters. When quality of life among the newly formed clusters was compared, the highest average score in the HSC cluster was found in the Psychological Domain (75.4 ± 11.9), whereas in the LSC cluster, the highest average score was found in the Physical Domain (74.6 ± 12.6). Lower quality of life scores was found in the environmental domain for both the LSC clusters (51.3 ± 14.0) and the HSC clusters (54.7 ± 15.5). This difference proved to be statistically significant (p = 0.009). Conclusions: The results showed that adolescents with higher social capital also presented higher

Abstract: the aim of this ecological study was to analyze to what extent world health organization goals were met in relation to dental caries in 2000 in minas gerais state, brazil, identifying factors associated with variation in dmft and the occurrence of dmft < 3 among 12-year-old children and in the percentage of caries-free 5-year-olds. secondary data from different sources were used. linear regression and multiple logistic regression techniques were applied to the analysis of the numerical and dichotomous dependent variables. socioeconomic and dental services supply/utilization indicators were used as potential explanatory variables. the goals expressed by dmft < 3 at 12 years and a minimum of 50% caries-free 5-year-olds were met by 37% and 9% of the state's municipalities, respectively. in general the dependent variables were associated with socioeconomic level, and no associations were identified with dental care. the results should not be generalized, but they do suggest inequities in oral health and the role played by socioeconomic factors and water fluoridation.

Abstract: this paper discusses supervised training as a fundamental opportunity for the consolidation of the teaching space and also as means of facing the challenges posed by the guidelines for dental courses. it is not a new proposal. it is in fact a fight for changes in dental practicing which began in the 70s with the movement for the integration between dental teaching and dental services. it approaches public health services spaces and the world of work as central for a new teaching strategy. that would generate the opportunity to graduate professionals with a more critical profile, also capable of understanding reality and intervening on it. the paper points the risks of understanding and misunderstanding - supervised training with practicing inside the dental school, under the label of curricular supervised training. in that perspective traditional practices, with emphasis on technical and biological aspects would not have the potential to achieve the changes proposed by the curricular guidelines. while highlighting the relevance of curricular supervised training in professional education, the paper sets a dialogue with abeno, contesting some of its positions. in that sense, the paper shows the need for a deeper and more participative discussion, that joins as many dental schools as possible.

Abstract: the concern about the representatives of the users of sus (brazil's national health system) in municipal health councils is a reality, because even with all the legal apparatus that guarantees parity with regard to the other members, it is not possible to guarantee the quality of their participation. the objective of this research was to learn who the councillors users of the municipal health council of belo horizonte are, their social characteristics, as well as their relation with the base they represent. quantitative research techniques were applied to learn the characteristics, and qualitative techniques were employed to evaluate the relationship with the base. regarding the characteristics, it was observed that the majority of the councillors are retired men with low level of schooling. the terms of office are repeated, suggesting professionalization of this category. the relationship with the base has limitations, mainly concerning communication, and it seems that the continuing education of the councillors to work adequately with their base may be a solution to this problem.

Abstract: Esta pesquisa teve como principal objetivo verificar a capacidade da levedura e seus derivados, autolisado e extrato, em manter o crescimento de ratos recém-desmamados, quando usados em substitui o parcial a uma dieta-padr o ideal. Usou-se substitui o de 10, 20 ou 30% da dieta-padr o recomendada pelo American Institute of Nutrition -- 93G, por uma mistura (amido de milho + produto de levedura + óleo de soja), mantendo as dietas modificadas isoprotéicas (20% proteína) e isocalóricas. Com as substitui es, os produtos de levedura participaram das dietas nas concentra es de 4, 8 ou 12%, respectivamente. As dietas substituídas, contendo diferentes propor es de produtos de levedura, provocaram crescimento dos ratos igual ou superior ao da dieta-padr o. O ritmo de crescimento foi proporcional ao aumento da participa o dos produtos de levedura. Os índices séricos de ácido úrico, uréia e atividade de transaminases n o revelaram sintomas de intoxica o pelo uso dos produtos de levedura.
