Can subjective sleep quality, evaluated at the age of 73, have an influence on successful aging? The PROOF study  [PDF]

Objective: Sleep complaints are recurrent in Geriatrics and are often attributed to physiological aging. The aim of this work is to describe subjective sleep quality and its impact on successful aging. Methods: Subjective sleep quality was evaluated by using the Pittsburgh subjective sleep quality questionnaire. Two visual analogical scales (graduate from 0 to 10) were used to quantify perceived state of health and life satisfaction. Objective respiratory sleep parameters were also collected. Results: 370 data were analysed (46.2% of males). The average age was 73.2 +/- 1. The level of perceived state of health was 6.9 +/- 2, and life satisfaction level was 7.7 +/-2. Subjective sleep quality was significantly related to perceived health status (p = 0.034) and life satisfaction (p = 0.005). There was no significant association between sleep quality and objective respiratory sleep parameters. Conclusion: The assessment of sleep quality plays an important role in the management of elderly persons and can help them to age more successfully.

Diagnosis and Management of Elder Abuse by Family Physician  [PDF]

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the difficulties encountered by primary care physicians in diagnosing and handling elderly abuse. A survey of the practice of 266 family physicians in France was conducted by email using a questionnaire during the fall of 2012. Statistical analysis was performed using a Chi-2 test for the comparison of two qualitative variables, and the Kruskal-Wallis test was used to compare a qualitative variable with an ordinal one. 77 physicians responded to the questionnaire. They are often faced with the phenomenon of mistreatment, including psychological abuse, of elderly people. They describe the diagnosis correctly but express management difficulties. These difficulties are due to lack of knowledge of the law and a lack of practical tools usable on a daily basis. These physicians call for better training regarding the law and clearer reporting procedures. Education and training in the legislative field must be improved. This conclusion has been reached before in previous surveys in the USA and Europe since the 1970s, which leads to the question as to whether full comprehension of the magnitude of the issue exists. Perhaps the complexity of medical practice requires that an anthropological approach should be taken to identify all the facets involved.

Morphological Evolution Is Accelerated among Island Mammals

PLOS Biology , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.0040321
Abstract: Dramatic evolutionary changes occur in species isolated on islands, but it is not known if the rate of evolution is accelerated on islands relative to the mainland. Based on an extensive review of the literature, I used the fossil record combined with data from living species to test the hypothesis of an accelerated morphological evolution among island mammals. I demonstrate that rates of morphological evolution are significantly greater—up to a factor of 3.1—for islands than for mainland mammal populations. The tendency for faster evolution on islands holds over relatively short time scales—from a few decades up to several thousands of years—but not over larger ones—up to 12 million y. These analyses form the first empirical test of the long held supposition of accelerated evolution among island mammals. Moreover, this result shows that mammal species have the intrinsic capacity to evolve faster when confronted with a rapid change in their environment. This finding is relevant to our understanding of species' responses to isolation and destruction of natural habitats within the current context of rapid climate warming.
Colombia Internacional , 2010,
Abstract: this article describes different stages of the indigenous political mobilizations in colombia, stages which reflect their particular combination of struggle strategies and their different degrees of articulation to the state: self-government, direct action, use of legal resources, and electoral participation. it shows how the colombian opening to multiculturalism, which took place in 1991 and has been associated with a relative institutionalization of indigenous demands formulated since the seventies, does not prevent the permanence-or revitalization-of practices of resis-tance, as in the case of those called mingas. in a transversal manner, the emphasis is put on how specific claims based on indianness go hand in hand with alliances and broader claims in favor of the construction of another society, one being inclusive and equitable.
Mayo del 68, cuarenta a?os después: Entre herencias y controversias
Revista de Estudios Sociales , 2009,
Abstract: was may of '68 a revolt or revolution? was it a student movement or a working-class one? was may of '68 french or global in character? may of '68, which combined unprecedented student protests with a massive general strike, left a strong imprint on the political, social, and cultural development of french society. starting with a contextualization of the "facts," this article reflects on the direct and indirect effects, as well as controversies, that may of '68 still generates forty years later. it emphasizes the way that young people today perceive the events of period and how may of '68 was at the center of the 2007 french presidential campaign.

Exploration textométrique de l’ uvre de M. Barrès
Virginie Lethier
Synergies Monde , 2013,
Abstract: Cette contribution se donne pour objectif de mettre en relief les apports d’une analyse assistée par les outils informatiques et statistiques à l’analyse du discours littéraire. Héritière de la statistique lexicale et de la lexicométrie limitées à l’entrée de l’unité graphique, la textométrie permet désormais un accès renouvelé au texte et à la pluralité de ses dimensions, jusqu’alors occultées par les artefacts du régime matériel de l’imprimé. Il s’agira ici d’appliquer des méthodologies d’exploration des contrastes grammaticaux et de la co-occurrence à un corpus numérique des uvres de M. Barrès
