Matilda, where are you: subject description of juvenile fiction in the Slovenian catalogue and catalogues of neighbouring countries
Alenka ?auperl
Knji?nica : Revija za Podro?je Bibliotekarstva in Informacijske Znanosti , 2009,
Abstract: Differences in subject description of juvenile fiction was investigated on five examples of international classics in five library catalogues: Oton upan i Public Library (Knji nica Otona upan i a) in Ljubljana, Slovenia, Stadtbibliothek public library in Graz, Austria, integrated catalogues of libraries in the Gorizia region in Italy (Sistema bibliotecario della Provincia di Gorizia) and the Karlovac region in Croatia (Skupni katalog knji nica Karlova ke upanije) in September 2008. As Slovenian youth rarely speaks languages of neighbouring countries, British Library catalogue was added.Results show that catalogue records are inconsistent within an individual library as well as in comparision with other libraries in the sample. Librarians do not make consistent subject descriptions. Class number, which is present in all catalogues except in the Austrian one, usually represents: the author’s country, language and/or nationality,the literary genre, and the target audience.Subject headings in the sample bring information on the subject (aboutness), author’s country, language and/or nationality, the literary genre, and target audience. Summaries tell more on the story. But they can also bring information on emotional experience of the reader, information on the author or history of the literary work. It would be economically beneficial if subject description could be more consistent. But uniform subject description is not possible because of diverse library collections and users.The solution might be in the use of multiple levels of subject description regarding to the type of the libraries.
Tintín a Catalunya [Tintin in Catalonia]
Soldevilla Albertí, Joan Manuel
Zeitschrift für Katalanistik , 2012,
Abstract: This article offers a perspective of the different stages which marked the arrival of "The Adventures of Tintin", a series that has been widely popular and highly influential in the Catalan-speaking areas. We will first illustrate the importance of Hergé’s work in the context of the 20th century media and will continue with an account of how this comic reached our nation. The essay analyzes the implementation strategies in the book market, describes how the series consolidated its position, how it eventually managed to become a modern icon in the 1980s and how the new century has witnessed a rebirth of people’s interest in Hergé’s work.
Notes on “Feral y las cigüe as”, by Fernando Alonso, and “Historia del califa cigüe a” (Wilhelm Hauff, Sara Cone Bryant)
Hagedorn, H. C.
Ocnos , 2011,
Abstract: The present article deals with the sources ofthe version of the “Historia del califa cigüe a”included in the narration Feral y las cigüe as (1971), by Fernando Alonso. The analysis focuses on the original tale of the postromantic german author Wilhelm Hauff (“Die Geschichte von Kalif Storch”, 1825), and the adaption of this tale that Sara Cone Bryant wrote for her book How to tell stories to children (1905, spanish translation: El arte de contar cuentos, 1965).
Literatura infanto-juvenil e gêneros textuais: uma proposta pedagógica com o livro “Classificados Poéticos”, de Roseana Murray
Jacqueline Britto Sant'Anna,Karla Reis Martins
ECCOM , 2012,
Abstract: The subject discussed here in is the role of both teachers and schools when it concerns to the development of young readers, and therefore the attention required to select activities related to reading; we also discuss the importance of dealing with different textual goods in the classroom since they are closer to the everyday routine of students, and how this can be done using the book “Classificados Poéticos”, by Roseana Murray.
Building female cultural identity: Sor Juana in contemporary juvenile literature
Bartels, Kathleen
Cuadernos de Música, Artes Visuales y Artes Escénicas , 2008,
Abstract: This project is a study of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz as an icon who represents women’s intellectual liberty through juvenile literature. The subject of several books written for children and of pedagogical websites, Sor Juana’s powerful image is rewritten in anecdotal form to capture the attention and admiration of a young audience. Sor Juana’s appearance in juvenile literature reflects her mythical status in Latin American culture and serves to build female cultural identity through education.
Young patient with juvenile polyposis syndrome: A case report  [PDF]
Mounia El Yousfi, Bahija Benyachou, Adil Ibrahimi, Laila Chbani, Afaf Amarti
Open Journal of Gastroenterology (OJGas) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojgas.2012.23022
Abstract: A case is reported here of juvenile polyposis in a 15- year-old girl. She was diagnosed upon the assessment of the dysenteric syndrome. Coloscopy and gastro- scopy had shown polyps of variable size whose histological study confirmed the hamartomatous character typical of the youthful non adenomatous polyps free of dysplasia. There was no localization in the small bowel. Coloprotectomy with ileoanal anastomosis was carried out in view of the importance of diarrhoea and the impacts on the general state of health.
Evaluation of Tuberculin Skin Test Response and Interfering Factors in Patients with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis  [PDF]
I??l Eser ?im?ek, Müferet Ergüven, Olcay Bilgi? Da?c?
Open Journal of Rheumatology and Autoimmune Diseases (OJRA) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojra.2013.34028
Abstract: Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common rheumatologic disease in pediatric age group. Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection (TB) is an important cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with inflammatory rheumatologic disease. The objective of this study is to determine to what extent active disease and use of drugs in JIA affects response to PPD skin test and thus to investigate the significance of PPD skin test in the diagnosis of latent TB. 77 children diagnosed with JIA according to ILAR diagnostic criteria and routinely followed by our rheumatology clinic were included in the patient group. Patients were grouped according to subtypes of disease, activity status and drugs they used. Control group was formed from 58 healthy children. PPD skin test was applied to each subject and the number of BCG scars of all cases was recorded. We found no significant difference in PPD induration diameters between JIA and control group (p > 0.05). The number of BCG scar is similar in both groups. In the control group, age and number of BCG scars and PPD skin test diameter are positively correlated. But there is no such significant relationship in patients with JIA (p > 0.05). PPD induration diameter of patients with active disease is significantly shorter than patients in remission (p > 0.05). PPD induration diameter of patients treated with steroid and disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD) and underwent remission were not significantly different from the control group. When compared with patients using other drugs, patients on remission using steroid and DMARD have shorter PPD induration diameter. Activity of disease and drugs used (steroid, DMARD) affects PPD response. In the diagnosis of latent TB, normal range of PPD diameter in healthy child changes in JIA patient with active disease. That the PPD diameter is shorter than normal range could indicate underlying TB infection. This fact should be considered in the follow-up of the patients with JIA.
The Practice of US Execution of Juvenile Delinquents in Dated Times Vis-à-Vis International Human Rights Laws and Case Laws  [PDF]
Nuruye Beyan Feleke
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2015.64029
Abstract: The prohibition against the death penalty as applied to juveniles is widely practiced across the globe. The United Nations treaties have prescribed age requirements for extreme sentences such as the juvenile death penalty. Despite these requirements very few countries continue to sentence juveniles to the death penalty that ignore the age of the offender. The United States leads the world in state-sanctioned juvenile executions. However, recently the United States came into compliance with international norms and heralded a major shift by banning the death penalty as applied to juveniles in the Supreme Court case of Roper v. Simmons in 2005. Due to that, the overwhelming majority of states do not sentence juveniles to the death penalty and the prohibition against sentencing children to die has become accepted. On the contrary, for over three centuries, the United States executed juvenile delinquents and the Supreme Court, for a long time, held there was no national consensus rejecting juvenile executions and not a violation of the Eighth Amendment. The US is already a party to a number of fundamental human rights treaties that impact capital punishment. To some extent, the US has isolated itself from the most direct effects of these treaties through reservations or by invoking domestic law. But the US is committed to the underlying human rights principles of these treaties and these instruments can serve as a starting point for reforming and restricting the death penalty from a human rights perspective.
Effectiveness of Rituximab Therapy on Severe Calcinosis in 4 Children with Juvenile Dermatomyositis  [PDF]
Mohammad Alhemairi, Mohammed Muzaffer
Open Journal of Rheumatology and Autoimmune Diseases (OJRA) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojra.2017.71002
Abstract: Background: Calcinosis is an important sequela of JDM which may cause significant morbidity and mortality. There is no standard curative treatment for calcinosis but different agents were used with variable efficacy. We report the favorable outcome of rituximab on severe calcinosis in 4 JDM patients and present their clinical data. Patients and Methods: A retrospective chart review of 4 children with JDM and severe calcinosis who received rituximab for relapsing or polycyclic JDM course. Diagnosis and follow up of calcinosis was clinically and by X-ray. Review data included: age of patients at onset of JDM symptoms and diagnosis, clinical and laboratory criteria at diagnosis, disease course and duration of follow up. Data about calcinosis onset, sites, severity and its progression were also included. Further data about rituximab therapy included: dosage, side effects, other treatment used before, during or after this drug and outcome and duration of follow up of calcinosis after therapy. Results: 4 patients (2 male, 2 female), interval between onset of symptoms and diagnosis was 6 - 12 months, course of JDM was polycyclic or relapsing, duration of follow up was 5 - 7 years. Calcinosis was severe causing ulceration, recurrent skin infections and joint limitation. It was not improving despite treatment with different DMARDs and/or bisphosphonates, colchicine and warfarin. Reason to start rituximab was inadequate disease control with conventional DMARDs. All patients received steroids and more than one DMARD before starting rituximab and were continued thereafter, follow up after rituximab was 3 to 5 years. All patients had improvement in disease activity and frequency of admission especially due to complications of calcinosis. One patient had complete clearance of calcinosis for the last 5 years. Others had significant improvement in calcinosis with no new lesions, decreased sites and density and decreased calcinosis related contractures. There were no serious side effects to rituximab. Conclusion: Our study showed the favorable effect of rituximab in treatment of calcinosis in 4 patients with JDM-associated severe calcinosis when it was used with other conventional DMARDs.
Book Review: Developmental Juvenile Osteology—2nd Edition  [PDF]
Geoffrey H. Sperber
Forensic Medicine and Anatomy Research (FMAR) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/fmar.2017.52002
Abstract: This paper is a critical review of the newly published second edition of “Developmental Juvenile Osteology” by C. Cunningham, L. Scheuer and S. Black. It is extensively illustrated by Angela Christie portraying the developing human skeleton at varying stages of juvenile growth. A chapter on the dentition omits mention of attritional wear or identifies caries restorative materials. Despite an extensive bibliography, failure to provide reference sources detracts from an incomparable source of developmental skeletal enlightenment.
