Predictors of 10-year hospital use in a community-dwelling population of Brazilian elderly: the Bambuí cohort study of aging
Macinko, James;Camargos, Vitor;Firmo, Josélia O. A.;Lima-Costa, Maria Fernanda;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2011001500003
Abstract: we use data from a population-based cohort of elderly brazilians to assess predictors of hospitalizations during ten years of follow-up. participants were 1,448 persons aged 60 years and over at baseline (1997). the outcome was self-reported number of hospitalizations per year. slightly more than a fifth (23%) experienced no hospitalizations during the 10 year follow-up. about 30% had 1-2 events, 31% had between 3 and 7 events, and about 18% had 8 or more events during this time. results of multivariable hurdle and cox proportional hazards models showed that the risk of hospitalization was positively associated with male sex, increased age, chronic conditions, and visits to the doctors in the previous 12 months. underweight was a predictor of any hospitalization, while obesity was an inconsistent predictor of hospitalization.
Localizing common fixed points of commuting diffeomorphisms of the plane
S. Firmo
Mathematics , 2010,
Abstract: We prove that if $G\subset\text{Diff}^{1}(\mathbb{R}^2)$ is an Abelian subgroup generated by a family of commuting diffeomorphisms of the plane, all of which are $C^{1}$-close to the identity in the strong $C^{1}$-topology, and if there exist a point $p\in\mathbb{R}^2$ whose orbit is bounded under the action of $G$, then the elements of $G$ have a common fixed point in the convex hull of $\bar{\mathcal{O}_{p}(G)}$. Here, $\bar{\mathcal{O}_{p}(G)}$ denotes the topological closure of the orbit of $p$ by $G$.
A Note on Commuting Diffeomorphisms on Surfaces
S. Firmo
Mathematics , 2004, DOI: 10.1088/0951-7715/18/4/005
Abstract: Let S be a closed surface with nonzero Euler characteristic. We prove the existence of an open neighborhood V of the identity map of S in the C^1-topology with the following property: if G is an abelian subgroup of Diff^1(S) generated by any family of elements in V then the elements of G have common fixed points. This result generalizes a similar result due to Bonatti and announced in his paper "Diffeomorphismes commutants des surfaces et stabilite des fibrations en tores".
A política de perto: recortes etnográficos de campanhas eleitorais
Barreira, Irlys Alencar Firmo;
Novos Estudos - CEBRAP , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-33002006000100011
Abstract: taking ethnographical notes and the concept of ritual as a guideline, this article discusses electoral acts in northeastern capitals in brazil. the main argument sustains that acts of campaign bring near what is understood as politics and the electors, making possible the presentation of opponents and redefining social pacts that validate the principles of political representation.
Política, memória e espa?o público: a via dos sentimentos
Barreira, Irlys Alencar Firmo;
Revista Brasileira de Ciências Sociais , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-69092001000200005
Abstract: the article analyses different mobilization and symbolic strategies against violence and in favor of justice led by a family victim of the murder of the father, at that time the mayor of a city called acaraú, in the countryside of ceará state. the campaign against the parliamentary immunity of the accused of the crime, based on a "combat against oblivion", is motivated by radical feelings that produce rituals with the women as the main characters and spokespersons of a discursive explosion. based on newspapers, interviews with the families and inhabitants of aracaú city and judicial documents, the author aims to investigate the different circuits of this memory mobilized by feelings that mediate public and private spheres. the article analyses the way politics take place, observing the reconversion of feelings that consolidate family divisions, partisan groups, points of view, showing collective sensibilities and moral principles. in sum, the discussed ideas converge on the comprehension of feelings and values that create distinctive rituals and expressive ways: mourning, slogans, emotions and denouncing speech.
Os guias turísticos em Berlim
Barreira, Irlys Alencar Firmo;
Tempo Social , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-20702005000100013
Abstract: this paper deals with the narratives about berlin as can be found in leaflets, history books and travel guides, at different historical moments: the post-war period, the division of the state (east-west) and more recently, at the time of reunification, when it became worthy of being instituted as a multicultural capital. the discussion highlights the way different spaces, monuments and buildings are recalled and embedded in symbolic processes, that reveal a dispute among memories and that point to constant redefinitions of the relation between past and present. from this point of view, it is possible to realize that the observation methods of the city narratives may be expanded and applied to other urban experiences.

Política, memória e espa o público: a via dos sentimentos
Barreira Irlys Alencar Firmo
Revista Brasileira de Ciências Sociais , 2001,
Abstract: O artigo aborda diversas mobiliza es e estratégias simbólicas contra a violência e a favor da justi a efetivadas por uma família vítima do assassinato do pai, até ent o prefeito de Acaraú, cidade do interior do Ceará. A campanha contra a imunidade parlamentar dos acusados do crime, baseada no "combate ao esquecimento", é movida por sentimentos radicais que produzem rituais, tendo as mulheres como principais protagonistas e porta-vozes de uma explos o discursiva. Baseada em consulta a jornais, entrevistas com familiares e moradores da cidade de Acaraú, além da análise de documentos judiciais, a autora visa investigar os diferentes circuitos dessa memória mobilizada por sentimentos que fazem a media o entre esfera pública e esfera privada. Analisa o modo como a política se realiza, através da reconvers o dos sentimentos que v o consolidando cis es familiares, grupo de adeptos, vis es de mundo, acenando com sensibilidades coletivas e preceitos morais. Em síntese, as idéias desenvolvidas convergem para a compreens o dos sentimentos e valores como matéria que institui ritualidades e modos expressivos diferenciados: luto, palavras de ordem, emo es e linguagens de denúncia.
Paires de structures de contact sur les variétés de dimension trois
Vincent Colin,Sebastiao Firmo
Mathematics , 2008, DOI: 10.2140/agt.2011.11.2627
Abstract: We introduce a notion of positive pair of contact structures on a 3-manifold which generalizes a previous definition of Eliashberg-Thurston and Mitsumatsu. Such a pair gives rise to a locally integrable plane field $\lambda$. We prove that if $\lambda$ is uniquely integrable and if both structures of the pair are tight, then the integral foliation of $\lambda$ doesn't contain any Reeb component whose core curve is homologous to zero. Moreover, the ambient manifold carries a Reebless foliation. We also show a stability theorem "\`a la Reeb" for positive pairs of tight contact structures.
Fixed points for nilpotent actions on the plane and the Cartwright-Littlewood theorem
S. Firmo,J. Ribón,J. Velasco
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: The goal of this paper is proving the existence and then localizing global fixed points for nilpotent groups generated by homeomorphisms of the plane satisfying a certain Lipschitz condition. The condition is inspired in a classical result of Bonatti for commuting diffeomorphisms of the 2-sphere and in particular it is satisfied by diffeomorphisms, not necessarily of class $C^{1}$, whose linear part at every point is uniformly close to the identity. In this same setting we prove a version of the Cartwright-Littlewood theorem, obtaining fixed points in any continuum preserved by a nilpotent action.
