Abstract: Introduction: The involvement of undergraduate student at the beginning of their training in activities based on Primary Health Care (PHC), provides preventive and health promoting actions, and ensures the evaluation of the vulnerability of communities and people. Objectives: To analyze the opinion of students and teachers of two medicine higher education institutions on the relevance of Primary Health Care in this course. METHODS: Students and teachers should be effectively enrolled in order for the study to be conducted, being chosen in a random manner and without interferences on the part of the researchers so that the work was as reliable as possible. A cross-sectional study was conducted with interviews structured in questionnaires about what they thought about PHC. To some students and teachers of the medical course of Valen?a and Grande Rio University (UNIGRANRIO). Before receiving the questionnaire, all interviewed signed a Free and Informed Consent Term, which included the objectives and methodology of the work. Results: 310 students and 51 teachers participated in the study, where 91.43% of the students and 100% of the teachers affirmed that primary care plays a fundamental role in medical education. 94.86% of students and 97.91% of teachers, claimed that the discipline allows a greater contact between undergraduates and community. When questioned about the encouragement that teachers give to students to pursue a career in PHC, 57.87% of the students and 70.83% of the professors said they lacked in such a stimulus. Conclusion: PHC is still very neglected by governmental policies, educational institutions and by the own teachers, that often, turn they attention only to tertiary medicine and, as a consequence, a discouragement of this area occur. Therefore, a higher PHC value is necessary, allowing a more humane look at the patient, valuing their feelings, anguishes and their pathological framework.

Abstract: empowerment can be defined as women's ability increment to widen their life options and make their own decisions. it can be looked at in three dimensions: personal, close relationships and collective. several studies have pointed out the uneven advancement in these dimensions and women's greater difficulties to transform the close relationship dimension. this paper analyzes three issues of such dimension: women's possibilities to manage their own income; their ability to negotiate their domestic workload; and their freedom of movement. for this purpose, in-depth interviews were conducted with 27 women who compose the regional fund of chontal women from tabasco (fondo regional de mujeres chontales de tabasco). a family typology was constructed in order to analyze these three issues according to each family's composition and life cycle. results evidence women's ability to negotiate changes in income management and freedom of movement, but not in the redistribution of their domestic workload. in the concluding section, the paper discusses these findings and compares them to those obtained in similar works.

Abstract: El empoderamiento se de fine como el aumento en la capacidad de las mujeres para ampliar sus opciones de vida y tomar sus propias decisiones. Puede ser visto en tres dimensiones: per sonal, relaciones cercanas y colectiva. Varios estudios han se alado el desigual avance en éstas y la mayor dificultad de transformar la dimensión de las relaciones cercanas. Este artículo analiza tres aspectos de dicha dimensión: la posibilidad de manejar ingresos propios; la capacidad de negociación de la carga de trabajo doméstico; la libertad de movimiento fuera de casa para realizar actividades extradomésticas. Para lograr este objetivo, se efectuaron entrevistas a profundidad con 27 mujeres indígenas que conforman el Fondo Re gional de Mujeres Chontales de Tabasco (FRMCh). Se construyó una tipología de familias para analizar estos tres aspectos de acuerdo con la composición y ciclo de vida de cada fa milia. Los resultados evidenciaron la capacidad de las mujeres para negociar cambios en el manejo de ingresos y en la libertad de movimiento, pero no en la redistribución del trabajo doméstico. En las conclusiones se reflexiona sobre estos hallazgos a partir de los resultados obtenidos en trabajos similares.

Arquivos Brasileiros de Endocrinologia & Metabologia , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-27302006000300010
Abstract: aim: to evaluate the presence of microalbuminuria in non-diabetic subjects, associating it to the presence of cardiovascular risk factors like hypertension, smoking, dislipidemia and obesity. the urinary albumin excretion rate (uae) was also evaluated regarding to insulin secretion and resistance indices. design and methods: 105 subjects aged 33.4 ± 1.4 years (57.1% women), received 75 g dextrose for an ogtt, and the following variables were evaluated for glucose and insulin curves: basal and 2 hours values, peak values (pv) and area under the curves (auc). to evaluate insulin secretion and resistance, we used the insulinogenic, delta, homa, quicki, glucose to insulin ratio and the relation between insulinogenic and homa indices. a urine sample was collected overnight for albuminuria. individuals were allocated in two groups: 1) normal, and 2) altered glucose metabolism. results: the two groups differed in age, bmi, bp, abdominal circumference (ac), whr, cholesterol, triglycerides (tg), glycemias (basal and 2h), aucg, homa and quicki indices and the relation between insulinogenic and homa. mean uae was 4.28 ± 2.73 μg/ml, correlating to dbp, glycemias, aucg, gpv, homa, 2h insulin, ipv e auci. by stepwise multiple-regression analysis, only aucg was predictive of uae. by comparing interquartile intervals of uae, we found statistical significance between the 1st and 4th quartile for: bmi, sbp, dbp, ac, waist, 2h glucose, tg, ldl, aucg, auci, gpv and homa and quicki indices. conclusion: although in the absence of microalbuminuric individuals, we found differences among uae in individuals across a range of glucose tolerance and differences between clinical and laboratorial variables in the interquartile analysis. our findings suggest that in non-diabetic individuals, uae is associated to some characteristics of the metabolic syndrome, probably predisposing to greater atherogenic susceptibility.

Abstract: Heliothermic electricity generation is gaining popularity in several countries worldwide. In Brazil, this form of energy generation has not yet been explored for large scale projects. However, the country possesses extensive areas with normal and high-intensity direct irradiation and low seasonality factors, particularly in the semi-arid region of the Brazilian Northeast. The region also presents other important features for setting up such plants: proximity to transmission lines, sufficient flatness, non-endangered vegetation, a suitable land use profile low maximum wind speeds, low population density, and more recently, an increase in the demand for local electric energy due to economic growth above the Brazilian average. A Geographic Information System includes a set of specialised resources that allow us to manipulate spatial data, providing quickness and efficiency in the identification of appropriate places for installing solar power plants while also preparing us for future scenarios, with regards to their impacts, costs and benefits. This article presents a study of the optimal location for thermoelectric power plants in the semi-arid region of the Brazilian Northeast on the scale of 1:10,000,000. All provinces with good potential for the implementation of large-scale concentrating solar power plants are identified. Considering that the installed capacity for parabolic cylindrical concentrators in terrains with a steepness of less than 1% is 43.26 MW/km2 for systems without storage and 30.82 MW/km2 for systems with 6 hours of storage, the potential of the southeast region of Piauí alone is huge. Even with the lack of information about the urban areas, terrain continuity, and other variables,utilising only 10% of the identified potential area, or879.7 km2, would result in an installed capacity of 38.1-27.1 GW. This value corresponds to more than 1/3 of the potency of the current Brazilian electric system. If the same calculation is made for the semi-arid region of the Brazilian Northeast, its capacity will be greater than 1000 GW.

Advances in Entomology (AE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ae.2014.22017
Abstract: This project was an attempt to reconstruct a death in dubious circumstance which happened in December 2002 in Tandil (Buenos Aires Province). Although the body was in open air, the entomological expertise discovered signs of delayed colonization. In this experiment, pig carcasses used as models to reconstruct the case. One was placed in shadow and another in sunlight (control). The hypothesis was that the climate and the topography affect the necrophagous insect succession in a mountain site. The families of Coleoptera found on the baits were: Silphidae, Dermestidae, Cleridae, Histeridae; of Díptera: Calliphoridae, Sarcophagidae; Asilidae; of Hymenoptera: Formicidae, Encyrtidae and Vespidae.
Landscape Connectivity Approach in Oceanic Islands by Urban Ecological Island Network Systems with the Case Study of Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos (Ecuador)  [PDF]
Verónica Lorena Andrade Sierra, Xuan Feng
Current Urban Studies (CUS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/cus.2018.64031
The oceanic islands are well known for their high biodiversity where the dynamic integration of the ecosystems inside the populated islands is such as a living laboratory of ecological and social relations of interdependence. Oceanic islands are experimenting significant pressure on their ecosystems. Habitat fragmentation produces poor spatial connectivity between protected areas and human settlements. The essence of the research approach is to develop a new framework of Oceanic Island Network System based on urban ecological networks in dealing with island connectivity issues space. This new urban ecological planning tool can help to generate an integrator balance by a physical linkage system in a socio-ecosystem island. Facilitating the territorial ordering based on the spatial and functional relations between ecological functions and urban structure through the island network system has not been analyzed yet as an essential resource for integrating the natural and human systems in oceanic islands. This paper presents a landscape theory connectivity analysis of the built space vs. the natural space of oceanic islands with the case study of Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos into the Pelican Way Watershed boundaries. In this context, spatial network elements are considered under land movement concept. The analysis is intended to determine the spatial elements interrelationships by socio-ecological networks establishing a new landscape system strategy. Additionally, it is valuable and necessary to establish a new concept of land use network for oceanic islands, such as a potential resource to generating a physical structure of environmental balance connectivity, which includes social needs and ecological potentialities for successful urban ecological conservation and development.
Síndrome de Cowden: A propósito de una familia afectada
Blanco,Verónica; Keochgerián,Verónica;
Medicina Oral, Patología Oral y Cirugía Bucal (Internet) , 2006,
Abstract: cowden?s syndrome is a rare genodermatosis characterized by multiple hamartomas in several tissues and organs derived from all three embryonic layers. clinical features of cowden?s disease are explained by the mutation of the pten tumour suppressor gene, whose modification leads to an uncoordinated growth of tissues. the importance of this disease lies in the increased susceptibility to malignization of some lesions, specially breast, thyroid and genito-urinary tract lesions. as a result, the disease has been considered a preneoplasic condition. despite its varied phenotypic expression, this disease is generally unknown. consequently, many cases are undiagnosed or diagnosis comes at a late stage, what points out the importance of an early diagnosis of the disease so the patient can have periodic check-ups to prevent malignant diseases. a family case is presented here, whose diagnosis was based upon oral clinical findings and which most distinct systemic alteration is the presence of hamartomatous polyps in the digestive tract in several family members.

Abstract: quine criticizes two characteristic theses of logical positivism: the analytic-synthetic distinction and reductionism. on the other hand, he rejects the intensional notions that these theses suppose, such as analyticity, synonymy and proposition. as a change, he proposes a semantic theory about the natural language that intends to account for scientific language without those notions. this paper intends to analyze two aspects of this theory, one that relates quine with logical positivism and the other one that sharply separates him from it. the first aspect hast to do with the use of a logical-formal strategy as a philosophical tool. the second one takes us to the pragmatic and interpretationist turn -from the theoretical frame of logical positivism-, made evident by the determinant role that this theory gives to the action of the linguistic subject in the constitution of meaning.
