Determining Factors Influencing the Outcome of College Basketball Games  [PDF]
Rhonda Magel, Samuel Unruh
Open Journal of Statistics (OJS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojs.2013.34026
Abstract: While a number of statistics are collected during an NCAA Division I men’s college basketball game, it is potentially of interest to universities, coaches, players, and fans to which these statistics are most significant in determining wins and losses. To this end, statistics were collected from two seasons of games and analyzed using logistic and least squares regression methods. The differences between the two competing teams in four common statistics were found to be significant to determining victory: assists, free throw attempts, defensive rebounds, and turnovers. The models were then used with data from the 2011-2012 Season to verify the accuracy of the models. The point spread model was also used with 2013 March Madness game statistics.

Santos, Josenaide Engrácia dos;Cardoso, Cristina Maria Sousa;
Interface - Comunica??o, Saúde, Educa??o , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1414-32832011000300009
Abstract: this study aimed to reflect on narratives and experiences of communication professionals with regard to madness. to understand this experience, we interviewed 14 communication professionals in salvador: five journalists from four newspapers, five journalists from four television stations and four broadcasters from four radio stations (am and fm radio). we chose social constructionism as the methodological approach to guide this research because it allows for broader capture of the sense of madness. the views about madness that arose in the narratives took on three dimensions: conceptions of madness; experiences and living with madness; and the relationship between madness and the media. the narratives produced took positions taken from past experience and reflected social practices, such as activity in the media.
A "secreta funda??o" da psiquiatria: considera??es sobre a análise foucaultiana da história da loucura
Calomeni, Tereza Cristina B;
Fractal : Revista de Psicologia , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1984-02922010000100005
Abstract: the article that is now presented reflects upon the history of madness, text that begins from michel foucault's historical-archaeological analyses. starting from a temporal writing which includes the period comprised between the renaissance and modernity, foucault scrutinizes the distinct forms of the social perception of the mad person up to the institution of madness as a mental disease. an "archaeology of silence" to which madness is submitted, not a history of psychiatry, foucault's text questions about the historical conditions that favour the occurrence of psychiatry as a scientific discours about madness and the institution of the asylum as a place for the treatment of mad person.
O diagnóstico psiquiátrico e a produ??o de vida em servi?os de saúde mental
Severo, Ana Kalliny de Sousa;Dimenstein, Magda;
Estudos de Psicologia (Natal) , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-294X2009000100008
Abstract: the objective of the psychiatric reform is to deconstruct the tutelage relation and the objetivation produced by the psychiatric knowledge and practices regarding madness. one of the pillars of that relationship is the psychiatric diagnosis. this tool produces important life process effects, as well as institutional, amongst individuals that are diagnosed with mental disorders. the purpose of this work is to present a research study conducted with clients of the mental health ambulatory unit in the city of natal, rn. the objective of the study was to identify the meanings of the psychiatric diagnoses of the clients and the effects they produce on their daily lives. working with observations and with a semi-structured interview, we identified that the diagnosis concept varies amongst the clients and that the diagnosis alters their lives in ways such as loss of a job, family dependence and disruption of social relations, effects that are sustained by the medical and judicial knowledge. we understand that the tutelage relations with the family and the health services are established when the diagnosis is made and the life style is then oriented by the "existence" of the mental illness/disorder.
A loucura e a urgência da escrita
Hidalgo, Luciana;
Alea : Estudos Neolatinos , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S1517-106X2008000200005
Abstract: the concept of literature of urgency is introduced to define a type of writing produced in some kind of emergency, in situations that are really close to the edge: in lima barreto's specific case this is the basis to the analysis of diário do hospício (hospice's diary) written by the author in 1919-20, while he was a patient in hospital nacional dos alienados, in rio de janeiro, brazil. it demonstrates how this literature has appeared already contaminated by insanity and by the hospital's routine, constituting simultaneously a self-writing (l'écriture de soi, foucault's concept) created to defend a trapped ego dealing with the institution and a document of historical value that accuses, from de the patient's point of view, details of the psychiatric routine normally absent from the hospice's official literature.

El concurso de la Académie Royale de Médecine de Paris, 1843: Análisis contextual de la emergencia de los primeros trabajos acerca de la herencia de la locura (A. Gaussail y E. Gintrac)
Vallejo,Mauro;
Anuario de investigaciones , 2010,
Abstract: the purpose of this work is to analyze the appearance of the first french publications dealing with the heredity of mental illnesses. as it has been shown by others scholars, france was the country where the hereditarian subject was specially observed from a medical point of view. from 1850 a great part of the alienist profession considered that the heredity was a essential component of the mental pathologies. after describing the relevance that until 1850 the psychiatrists gave to that factor, this paper shows that the medical knowledge about heredity must be taken into account in order to understand how and why, ant thanks to a contest announced by the académie royale de médecine, the first treatises dealing with the subject (written by a. gaussail and e. gintrac) finally appeared.
Alguns conceitos de loucura entre a psiquiatria e a saúde mental: diálogos entre os opostos
Costa Júnior, Francisco da;Medeiros, Marcelo;
Psicologia USP , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-65642007000100004
Abstract: this article presents part of the results of a bibliographical research on conceptions of madness in psychiatry and in mental health. publications in the lilacs database between 1999 and 2004 have been analyzed. the amplest research was conducted by thematic areas and, in the present article we have concentrated on two of them: publications that confi rm conceptions of madness as medical illnesses; and publications that defi ne madness by explicitly rejecting the psychiatric conception of madness, discussing madness with other conceptions which maintain a dialogue with the percipient objects (diagnostic descriptions) which psychiatry has conceived throughout its history. these more recent conceptualizations, which are sometimes called alternative, but are in fact previous to the current conceptions of madness in psychiatry (by considering it a genetic disorder, for instance), pointing to theoretical constructs that confirm a conception of mind, of the psychological, from a more individualized perspective to something resulting from social inter-relations. finally, we discuss how these conceptions of madness are related to world conceptions (and, consequently, conceptions of the human being) that are distinct and even exclude each other, with a more naturalistic world vision in psychiatry and a more sociological and collectivist vision in mental health, which have both been clashing beyond the scientifi c problems concerning madness.
Espa?os heterotópicos, imagens sobrepostas: encontros entre arte, loucura e memória
Fonseca, Tania Mara Galli;Thomazoni, Andresa Ribeiro;Lockmann, Vivian;Butkus, Vitor;
Psicologia: Ciência e Profiss?o , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1414-98932009000200015
Abstract: the theme of this article is the process of cataloging of the works that have been produced in the studio of creativity nise da silveira, which is attended by interns of the psychiatric hospital s?o pedro, in porto alegre, rio grande do sul. during 17 years, since its foundation, this studio has been established as a place against oblivion, where singular temporalities can resist, through artistic creation, in spite of the time without duration that distinguishes the globalized cities. the process of cataloging has been developed as a collective production, congregating the hospital staff and the students from several areas, such as arts, psychology and history (from public and private local universities). at least four significant collections, in the perspective of so-called art brut, were identified. these collections, which constitute an inestimable immaterial patrimony, require appropriate preservation and organization in order to become a technical reserve for research. therefore the organization of these collections has been moved by an ethic purpose that considers the works of art testimonies of subjectivities, claiming the difference in its positivity.
