From Age-Sets to Friendship Networks in Comparative Sociology: The continuity of soda among the Boorana of East Africa  [PDF]
Mario I. Aguilar
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2011.11002
Abstract: This paper re-assesses a comparative sociology of kinship and friendship in East Africa with a particular focus on the Boorana Oromo of Kenya. It argues that the study of kinship dominated the developments of a comparative sociology during colonial times and that the post-colonial influences of war, the market and globalization have increased the role of the individual. As a result a comparative sociology of African kinship needs to be understood in relation to comparative sociological studies of friendship in East Africa, particularly associated with the sociology of education.
Organic Wastes to Increase CO2 Absorption  [PDF]
Manuel Jiménez Aguilar
International Journal of Clean Coal and Energy (IJCCE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ijcce.2014.34005
Abstract: The objective of the study was actually the investigation of the effect of various organic wastes on the ability of urine in absorbing CO2. Urine alone or mixed with olive-oil-mill waste waters (O), poultry litter (P) or meat bone meal (M) was used on the absorption of CO2 from a gas bottle. The absorption capacity (1.35 - 2.85 gCO2/gNH4) was bigger than other solvents such as ammonia and amines. The range of CO2 absorption was significantly bigger for the organic mixtures P and PM with urine (9.1 - 11.8) g/L than urine alone 6.5 g/L. These organic wastes could be used to increase CO2 absorption in urine and reduce gas emissions.
The Constitution of Somaliland: The Problem of Constitutional Generations and Clan Dissolution  [PDF]
Mario I. Aguilar
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2015.54022
Abstract: This paper outlines the history, formation and general principles of the 2001 Somaliland Constitution. The people of Somaliland declared independence from Somalia in 1991 returning to the boundaries that had marked the British Protectorate of Somaliland until 1960, holding successful democratic elections, and establishing peace and stability, becoming an exception state within a wartorn region. In a contribution to the sociology of law and the wider knowledge of Somaliland this paper outlines the unifying principles within the Constitution, principles that are taken from the unity of religion (Islam), and the desire to exercise unity in diversity through traditional institutions of conflict resolution with the inclusion of universal principles of human rights law.
Kālighāt and Ritual Purity in Kolkata: A Historical Approach to Generations in India  [PDF]
Mario I. Aguilar
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2019.91007
Abstract: Mother Teresa of Kolkata remains one of the adopted figures of the old Indian capital in that after her arrival to be a teacher in a well-to-do school in Kolkata she took to the slums and the service of the “poorest of the poor” within an independent India. While there are several works published about her life after she opened Nirmal Hriday Ashram, a home for the destitute and the dying in Kolkata, less has been researched on the female Hindu symbolic associations of Kolkata with the feminine, as well as the challenges that Mother Teresa faced when as a Christian and as a woman decided to open Nirma Hriday Ashram. This paper examines the significance of Kālighāt for Kolkata and Hinduism and the issues of (in) purity that were triggered by Mother Teresa’s opening of a place for the dying within a property that previously was part of the Kālighāt. This paper suggests that a socio-historical understanding of Kolkata is central to any understanding of the work of the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata in later periods and their ongoing cooperation with Hindus and Muslims within Kolkata. Thus, ritual purity is not an isolated understanding within a synchronic moment but a generational challenge to ongoing diachronic changes within the City of Kolkata.

Historical and current approaches of research synthesis in plant sciences
Bolet?-n de la Sociedad Argentina de Bot??nica , 2009,
Abstract: the progress of science has depended to a great extent on the ability of reaching general conclusions from a body of published research, making reviews essential to scientific development. research reviews have provided the bases for conceptual syntheses and for development of general theories in many research areas of the natural sciences, as in the case of plant sciences. historical approaches include narrative and "vote-counting" types of reviews, both of which present serious flaws that limit their ability to obtain robust generalizations. currently, quantitative reviews such as metaanalyses are able to synthesize results from independent studies in a manner that is both objective and statistically defensible. meta-analysis has been used to synthesize disparate research findings and identify patterns to arrive at conclusions unavailable to the researchers of the primary studies. here i outline some of the most important features of meta-analysis, provide a state of the art of meta-analyses in plant sciences, and point out some future perspectives on its use. hopefully, readers will gain interest and appreciation on meta-analytical techniques to arrive to meaningful generalizations in different areas of plant sciences.
Dynamic Random Fuzzy Cognitive Maps
Aguilar, José;
Computación y Sistemas , 2004,
Abstract: a fuzzy cognitive map is a graphical means of representing arbitrary complex models of interrelations between concepts. the purpose of this paper is to describe a dynamic/adaptive fuzzy cognitive map based on the random neural network model. previously, we have developed a random fuzzy cognitive map and illustrated its application in the modeling of processes. the adaptive fuzzy cognitive map changes its fuzzy causal web as causal patterns change and as experts update their causal knowledge. our model carries out inferences via numerical calculation instead of symbolic deduction. we show how the adaptive/dynamic random fuzzy cognitive map can reveal implications of models composed of dynamic processes.
The random neural network model on the color pattern recognition problem
Revista Técnica de la Facultad de Ingeniería Universidad del Zulia , 2005,
Abstract: the purpose of this paper is to describe the use of the multiple classes random neural network model to recognize patterns having different colors. we propose a learning algorithm for the recognition of color patterns based upon the non-linear equations of the multiple classes random neural network model using gradient descent of a quadratic error function. in addition, we propose a progressive retrieval process with adaptive threshold value. the experimental evaluation shows that our approach provides good results.
Lineamientos para la psicoterapia de mujeres sobrevivientes a relaciones de pareja violentas: Una aplicación del psicoanálisis con perspectiva de género
Revista Venezolana de Estudios de la Mujer , 2009,
Abstract: we present the results of qualitative research, conducted in two stages: first, a documentary-type literature, whose main technique was the recording of information on cards for developing the theoretical framework, based on psychoanalysis revised and updated by feminist psychoanalysts. in the second stage in the field, the technique used was the focused interview, conducted on eight women in the shelter house ?argelia laya?. the overall objective of this research is to define some guidelines for short psychotherapeutic care, focused and specific to women survivors of violent relationships with partners.
50 a?os de la Revista de Biología Tropical: Contribución al desarrollo de la Geo-Paleontología
Revista de Biología Tropical , 2002,
Abstract: the geosciences contribution along the 50 years of the revista de biología tropical had been scarcity and episodic. until now there are 2374 papers but only 21 (0.88%) have some relation with geological sciencies. it`s posible to reconize two periods with geological contributions, one between 1963 and 1978. it`s appropiate to underline the importance of the biologist l. d. gómez with his contributions about costa rican paleobotanic in this period. the other period includes from 1988 to the present, and it`s tipyfied by an increase of biologist and geologist participation in different topics regarding with geosciences. foreing and national researches are in the same ratio and belong from several contries like costa rica, méxico and dominican repubic. the subjects are concerning mainly about fossil taxonomy (paleontology: 81%), only 19% are related with geological topics. such distribution could be explained because the affinity between the fossil studies and the biological sciences
