Abstract: Este eixo prop e discutir a quest o do patrim nio cultural como suporte de identidades sob a perspectiva da imaterialidade e materialidade da cultura, assim como, a valoriza o turística do patrim nio sob a perspectiva de gerenciamento do universo simbólico da sociedade. Prop e também, a reflex o sobre a problemática do agenciamento do patrim nio cultural como suporte de processos identitários de base local, associado a uma sociedade de consumo, na qual, este se realiza como mercadoria e, por conseguinte fonte de divisas para as localidades.

Abstract: The relationship between body mass index (BMI) and percent body fat (PBF) with central adiposity measures varies between ethnic groups and it has not been much studied in low socio-economic groups in India. Therefore, this study was undertaken to test the relative efficacy of waist circumference (WC), hip circumference (HC), waist hip ratio (WHR) and conicity index (CI) to predict BMI and PBF among Bengalee Hindu male slum dwellers. A total of 465 adult (aged 18-72 years) male slum dwellers of Bengalee Hindu ethnicity were included. Standard anthropometric techniques and formulae were used. WC showed the strongest significant (p < 0.001) partial correlation with BMI and PBF (0.82 and 0.77, respectively). Stepwise multiple linear regression analyses of BMI and PBF with the central adiposity measures revealed that WC had the strongest impact on BMI and PBF. On the other hand WHR, HC and CI had weaker effect. Moreover, WC alone accounted for about 67 and 60 per cent of the variations, respectively, of BMI and PBF. The models involving only WC and CI, explained almost similar proportions of variations (adjR2 = 94.1, and 69.4, respectively). Furthermore, the WC was found to best predict BMI (R2 Change = 0.666; F Change = 921.32, p < 0.001) and PBF (R2 Change = 0.597; F Change = 686.66, p < 0.001). Even after controlling for each other, i.e., BMI and PBF (results not shown) WC had the strongest significant impact on these two measures. Therefore, in this population, WC may be preferred over other measures of central adiposity in studies dealing with obesity and cardio vascular disease risk factors.
PENGEMBANGAN PRODUK AGROINDUSTRI JAMU DAN ANALISIS STRUKTUR KELEMBAGAANNYA [Jamu Industry Products Development and Their Instutional Structure Analysis]
Kusnandar 1),Marimin 2)
Jurnal Teknologi dan Industri Pangan , 2003,
Abstract: Indonesia is a rich country for many kinds of medicinal plants which become important raw material for jamu industry development. This paper discusses jamu industry products selection and institutional structure analysis for the jamu industry development. The result of products selection using “fuzzy non numeric decision making technique” shows that powder jamu is the best product to be developed and institutional structure analysis using “interpretative structural modelling technique” shows that municipal goverment is the institution which has strongest driver power for jamu industry development.
LOGIKA FUZZY DAN JARINGAN SYARAT TIRUAN UNTUK PENINGKATAN MUTU TEH HITAM [Fuzzy Logic an Artificial Neural Network for Quality Improvement of Black Tea]

Jurnal Teknologi dan Industri Pangan , 2007,
Abstract: This paper discussed quality improvement of black tea using fuzzy approach on quality functions deployment and the development of backpropagation neural the software NWP II plus. The research was conducted at PTPN VIII tea industry, Goalpara plantation. Result of the study showed that, parameter first priority based on customer evaluation was tea flavour. The Important process parameter of black tea based on result of fuzzy relationship matrix was the withering process. Based on the test of “trial and error” of network training process, the best network architecture for withering process monitoring [3-15-1] was obtained, that is 3 neurons in input layer, 15 neurons in hidden layer and 1 neuron in output layer. Three inputs and output consist of time, flow, temperature and moisture content. The result sugges that development of backpropagation neural network can be used for process evaluation of withering processes.

Abstract: In the product design and development processes, Quality Function Deployment (QFD) provides a comprehensive, systematic approach to ensure that the products meet or exceed customer expectations. This paper reports the results of vegetables customers survey in Jakarta. Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) method was used for weighing the result of survey, and the customer expectation were translated using QFD. To meet the biggest customer expectation, i.e. vegetables freshness, Just In Time (JIT) concept was utilized.

Abstract: Perfectly projected and impeccably created, the endocrine system precisely regulates the most delicate immune processes. The immune and neuroendocrine systems are two essential physiological components of mammalian organisms important for protection from the infection and disease on one hand, and on the other, for regulation of metabolism and other physiological activities; namely, the evidence has been found indicating that there is active and dynamic collaboration of these systems in the execution of their designated functions [1, 2,4]. These interactions occur at many stages of embryonic and neonatal development, and they are a continual part of normal homeostatic balance necessary to preserve health. There is communication between neuroendocrine and immune system via cytokines, neurotransmitters and peptide hormones which act, in both systems, through the same receptor molecules (Scheme 1). Many investigators have reported the increased thymic weight in experimental animals due to both castration and adrenalectomy [4]. The discovery from 1898 revealing that thymus was enlarged in castrated rabbits has been considered the embryo of hybrid medical discipline, i.e. the immunoendocrinology [1]. In the actual literature, at least in that available to us, it has not been noted that the appearance of the eunuchs, i.e. the castrates, stimulated the analytical approach to this phenomenon. Endocrine influences appear to be a part of bidirectional circuitry, namely, thymic hormones also regulate the release of hormones from the pituitary gland. Physiologically, thymus is under neuroendocrine control. It is apparent that the circulating levels of distinct peptide hormones are necessary to maintain a series of biological functions related both to micro environmental and lymphoid cells of the organ. The neuroendocrine control of the thymus appears to be extremely complex, with apparent presence of complete intrathymic biological circuitry involving the production of pituitary hormones, as well as the expression of their respective receptors by thymic cell [7-9]. The influence of gonadectomy on the humoral immunity has been controversial. All investigations agree that women have higher titres of all classes of circulating antibodies than men [1, 3]. The application of estrogens stimulated the formation of antibodies in the circulation [17]. Then, if there were no sex glands, the immune response of the individual would be enhanced. Both the cellular and the humoral immune response is more powerful in the adult normal women than in men of the same age. The immune res
