Abstract: this study was performed with the following objectives: to identify the existence of students counselling and orientation services; to characterize the services and programs offered; to verify the professional composition of the service staff. forms were distributed to the universities, asking questions about the presence and characteristics of the counselling services. of the 121 forms distributed to the universities, 61 were returned. eighty percent of these declare to have such services, being more frequent in the communitary-type institutions. in 75% of the services, a school psychologist is available, and they offer several types of programs to the students. the alternative treatments to the problems of the students in this institutions where there is no counselling services or where the school psychologist is not available were also discussed. the importance of a counselling service is recognized by the institutions that do not have one.

Abstract: innate immune responses are useful to determine the health status of fish and to evaluate the effect of immunomodulatory substances in fish farming. leukocytes respiratory burst was measured in pacu (piaractus mesopotamicus) using chemiluminescence assay and nitroblue tetrazolium (nbt) reduction assay. the nitroblue tetrazolium reduction seemed more adequate than chemiluminescence assay for leukocytes oxidative burst determination, since it was difficult to isolate the blood leucocytes for chemiluminescence assay. plasma and serum lysozyme were measured using a turbidimetric assay. the heating of serum and plasma samples (56 oc for 30 minutes) for complement system inactivation darkened the plasma samples and interfered in the results. the lysozyme activity in serum was higher than in plasma, suggesting that serum samples are more appropriate for the analysis. this study established protocols that can be useful tools in the study of immune mechanisms of the tropical fish pacu.

Abstract: this investigation aimed at the detection of mycobacterium tuberculosis (mtb) in the sputum of suruí indian subjects from amazonia, brazil. polymerase chain reaction analyses were positive for12 samples, five of which were also culture-positive (n = 147). four mtb genotypes were identified, one of which showed resistance to rifampicin and isoniazid. the study also highlighted one village complex as of particular importance, considering the relatively high number of tuberculosis cases reported and of mtb isolates obtained.
Research in theology in the digital age: Opportunities and limitations
AC Neele
Acta Theologica , 2011,
Abstract: Digital text repositories in the field of theology and history, including the works of John Calvin (1509-1564), are promising tools assisting scholars with comprehensive search capabilities, collaborative projects, annotations, and editing options. This paper discusses a case study of the opportunities and limitations of online scholarly archives of primary sources concerning the works of Calvin with particular attention to research, education, and publication.
Income Support and the Promotion of the Rights of the Elderly in Lesotho
AC Nyanguru
African Anthropologist , 2003,
Abstract: The low economic status of the elderly has been recognized and yet little research has been carried out in this area. The poverty of old people translates into poor health and nutrition, high levels of risk, problems of generating income, acute difficulties in sustaining the burdens brought by HIV and AIDS, migration, conflict, and the loss of land-based assets, violence and psychological pressures. The purpose of the study was to investigate how the rights of older people were realized. It reports on the rights to independence that ensures income security and access to food, shelter etc. The paper reports on a study conducted among a sample of 150 persons aged 60 years and above. The sample was drawn from an urban area (Maseru) and among the rural residents of Berea and Roma (30-40 km from Maseru). A questionnaire was administered by university students and took about one hour to administer. The main areas studied were the reported cash income and its sources, source of income in an emergency and the respondents' satisfaction with levels of the same. The study showed that slightly less than three-quarters of the rural elderly and slightly more than half of the urban elderly had incomes less than the minimum wage specified then. Urban incomes were higher. Two-fifths of respondents were unemployed, with an equal number mostly employed in manual and low paying jobs. A number largely depended on remittances or charity. There were no significant differences in satisfaction with incomes between the rural and urban elderly in spite of the significant differences in the same. The policy implications of the findings are discussed. The African Anthropologist Vol.10(2) 2003: 154-179
Speech Acts and Ideology in Select Nigerian Legal Discourse
AC Ezeife
African Research Review , 2010,
Abstract: Since linguistic investigations have proved that ideology is woven in our everyday linguistic interaction, the speech acts can portray such beliefs. Affidavit, on the other hand expresses facts for official and record purposes, as a result, there is a conceived inherent notion held in the interaction. As well, numerous studies on Nigerian legal discourse have largely concerned themselves with its stylistic and pragmatic features, but none of these have worked within the constraint of a model like speech acts to show that the ideological position of affidavit is apparent in its linguistic approach. This paper is therefore interested in filling this gap, concentrating only on speech acts in affidavits. The study is significant in that it shows how a legally and socially situated text such as affidavit is ‘not perfectly free’ of the ideological groups of its originators and time. This paper therefore, investigates fifteen affidavits of three different subject matters - affidavit of loss, affidavit of change of ownership and affidavit of personal identification. The paper concludes that ideological representations in affidavits, in addition to showing the bases of the terminology and aiding their meanings, reveal how speech acts account for acts which language may be used to perform.

Result: There are a number of challenges and emerging complex issues facing children infected and affected by HIV in sub-Saharan Africa. These include late presentation, limited access to pediatric HIV services, delayed diagnosis, infant feeding choices, malnutrition, limited and complex drug regimen, disclosure, treatment failure and reproductive health concerns. A holistic cost effective preventive, diagnostic and treatment strategies are required in order to eliminate pediatric HIV in SSA. Conclusion: HIV infected children and their families in sub-Saharan Africa face myriad of complex medical and psychosocial issues. A holistic health promotional approach is being advocated as the required step for eradication of pediatric HIV in Africa.
Post-Reformation Reformed sources and children
AC Neele
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2008,
Abstract: This article suggests that the topic “children” received considerable attention in the post-Reformation era – the period of CA 1565-1725. In particular, the author argues that the post-Reformation Reformed sources attest of a significant interest in the education and parenting of children. This interest not only continued, but intensified during the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation when much thought was given to the subject matter. This article attempts to appraise the aim of post-Reformation Reformed sources on the topic “children.” HTS Theological Studies Vol. 64 (1) 2008: pp. 653-664
