Populismos Radicales y construcción de hegemonía
Alberto Parisi
Utopia y Praxis Latinoamericana , 2012,
Abstract: El populismo debe ser rescatado del espacio de despección en que se lo puso desde sus inicios; por ej. en la interpretación que G. Germani hacía del peronismo como "imposibilidad de sectores rurales emigrados a la ciudad para adaptarse a los patterns de modernización social". Los actuales "populismos radicales" son una forma altamente lograda de democracia, en tanto incluyen el aspecto de democracia participativa (Mc Pherson). A la vez, su relación con la tradición socialista es central para profundizar sus propios procesos gubernamentales en curso, así como para atraer a las izquierdas hacia proyectos más viables y efectivos de redistribución social de recursos.

Abstract: The study of collective animal behaviour must progress through a comparison between the theoretical predictions of numerical models and data coming from empirical observations. To this aim it is important to develop methods of three-dimensional (3D) analysis that are at the same time informative about the structure of the group and suitable to empirical data. In fact, empirical data are considerably noisier than numerical data, and they are subject to several constraints. We review here the tools of analysis used by the STARFLAG project to characterise the 3D structure of large flocks of starlings in the field. We show how to avoid the most common pitfalls i the quantitative analysis of 3D animal groups, with particular attention to the problem of the bias introduced by the border of the group. By means of practical examples, we demonstrate that neglecting border effects gives rise to artefacts when studying the 3D structure of a group. Moreover, we show that mathematical rigour is essential to distinguish important biological properties from trivial geometric features of animal groups.
Design and Implementation of the Human Capital Report: The Case of the Biomedical Branch of the University of Florence  [PDF]

Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2016.64068
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to develop a Human Capital Report focused on the competency profile of the key employees. Employing the case study of Biomedical Branch of University of Florence, we have designed a strategy map centred on key stakeholders: students, university, didactic and research centres, businesses. Furthermore, we have designed a model for the management of human resources, integrating two different approaches: individual and organic. On the basis of this model, semi-structured interview was carried out to obtain rich data on the current competences of key employees, divided in three personal characteristics for each strategic theme: knowledge, skills, aptitudes. The results of our analysis show where the competences of the key personnel are lacking, the strategic initiatives to take in the future, and the lead indicators to use for measure the effects of the initiatives. This study contributes to the previous literature, describing how university institutes can measure the human capital readiness.

Abstract: Syndrome classification is not applicable to all patients with epilepsy, but only a limited number of patients [1]. In fact, the 1989 syndrome classification assigned, in each category, "other epilepsies not defined as syndromes", using, moreover, the terms ''syndromes'' and ''epilepsies'' almost interchangeably. The result was that the term ''syndrome'' took on a broad and very imprecise meaning, to the point where very specific and highly recognizable entities (such as childhood absence epilepsy) and poorly differentiated and not well-described epilepsies (such as cryptogenic parietal lobe epilepsy), tended to be treated as though they represented the same level of diagnostic precision.Moreover, in the past, the term ''idiopathic'' was also used to convey the idea of a highly pharmaco-responsive form of epilepsy, whereas, in the new ILAE terminology, the implication that ''idiopathic'' confers the quality of ''benign'' is, now-days, intentionally discarded. Thus, as a variety of subtle cognitive and behavioral disorders are seen in association with idiopathic epilepsies, cause is no longer equated with prognosis.In this respect, in fact, at the present time, it might be reasonable to include some of the traditional electro-clinical syndromes (ECS) (such as, benign rolandic epilepsy, Panayiotopoulos syndrome, and benign occipital epilepsy of the Gastaut type), previously classified as ''idiopathic'', in the unknown category [2].In addition, correlations between genotype and phenotype in ECS (table 1) are not so easy to establish, since genetic and non genetic factors likely play a role in determining the severity of ECS phenotype. On the other hand, the numerous and increasing discoveries on genetic origin are improving our knowledge, and it is hoped that this will be useful to define a more targeted therapeutic approaches for at least some of ECS.One of the most distinctive and clinically salient dimensions for classifying ECS is based accordingly to their typical

Abstract: O objetivo deste estudo consiste na constru o de cenários prospectivos para a indústria de telefonia celular no Brasil noperíodo de 2008 a 2016. O método empregado apoiou-se em estudo de caso e no emprego da metodologia de constru o de cenários da área de Estudos do Futuro, intitulada Lógica Intuitiva. Os dados primários foram coletados por meio de entrevistas individuais e n o-estruturadas junto a especialistas. Dados secundários foram coletados junto às operadoras de telefonia celular e nos órg os oficiais IBGE, Anatel e Ministério das Comunica es. Destacaram-se, dentre as tendências identificadas, as seguintes: crescimento do setor acima doPIB; amplia o da cobertura geográfica; penetra o da tecnologia3G; forte amplia o da quantidade e da qualidade dos servi os. As principais incertezas verificadas foram estas: crescimento sustentável em patamares elevados; política governamental perante a Anatel, servi os e tecnologias que far o sucesso e entrada de novos players. Foram elaborados quatro cenários prospectivos: o cenário “Mais do mesmo” representa a a o da inércia (continuidade); no cenário “Na crista da onda”, mudan as estruturais favorecem o setor; no cenário “Sem servi o”, há um forte retrocesso regulatório e econ mico; no cenário “Rouba monte”, o setor é prejudicado peloagravamento dos atuais problemas do País.
The STARFLAG handbook on collective animal behaviour: Part I, empirical methods

Quantitative Biology , 2008,
Abstract: The most startling examples of collective animal behaviour are provided by very large and cohesive groups moving in three dimensions. Paradigmatic examples are bird flocks, fish schools and insect swarms. However, because of the sheer technical difficulty of obtaining 3D data, empirical studies conducted to date have only considered loose groups of a few tens of animals. Moreover, these studies were very seldom conducted in the field. Recently the STARFLAG project achieved the 3D reconstruction of thousands of birds under field conditions, thus opening the way to a new generation of quantitative studies of collective animal behaviour. Here, we review the main technical problems in 3D data collection of large animal groups and we outline some of the methodological solutions adopted by the STARFLAG project. In particular, we explain how to solve the stereoscopic correspondence - or matching - problem, which was the major bottleneck of all 3D studies in the past.
Desempe ±o y Ranking de los Fondos Mutuos de Renta Variable en Chile desde 1992 a 1995 Desempe ±o y Ranking de los Fondos Mutuos de Renta Variable en Chile desde 1992 a 1995

Revista de Análisis Económico (RAE) , 1997,
Abstract: Desempe o y Ranking de los Fondos Mutuos de Renta Variable en Chile desde 1992 a 1995 In developed economies, Mutual Funds (MFs) show a poor return performance compared to simple investment strategies. The majority of the empirical evidence regarding the performance of MFs has been obtained using traditional time-invarying estimators. In this research, however, we vadilate the international evidence in the Chilean MF industry, using both the traditional method and the time-varying method. The time-varying method allows us to obtain time-varying coefficients, yielding robust performance results of the MFs and simple investment techniques. The conclusions of the poor return performance in the Chilean MFs industry can be considered robust due to the method used, in spite of the short time period studied. Also, the results suggest that the capital market regulator, agency could give small investors more information about the MF return performance, including measurements that consider both the return and risk.

Unaccustomed Earth: The West and India in Jhumpa Lahiri’s Narrative Unaccustomed Earth: l’Occidente e l’India nella narrativa di Jhumpa Lahiri
Daria Parisi
Between , 2011,
Abstract: This article focuses on the representations of the West and of India in Jhumpa Lahiri’s fiction through the analysis of one of her more significant short stories, “Mrs. Sen’s”, appearing in her collection, Interpreter of Maladies (1999; Pulitzer Prize, 2000). In this short story, Lahiri uses most of the recurrent discursive strategies, themes, and motifs of her fiction, such as the use of the point of view of children, the female identity and loneliness, strangeness as a means to represent the human condition, and colours and food as cultural difference. “Mrs. Sen’s” is the story of the meeting of two kinds of loneliness and two cultures, that of an American boy, Eliot and that of his Bengali babysitter, Mrs Sen. The analysis of the short story is inducive, in that it focuses on the images of the text as they gradually come to the reader’s imagination. It emerges that the representations of India and the West, i.e. United States in this short story, are antithetically built through the opposition of colour/non-colour, noise/silence, full/empty, hot/cold, covered/naked, and smell/odourlessness. Through Eliot’s unmasking point of view, these antitheses will prove the “accustomed earth”, the United States, to be as strange to him as to Mrs Sen; while Mrs Sen’s India will appear a warmer and more comfortable place, although far beyond their reach. Nell’articolo le rappresentazioni dell’India e dell’Occidente sono illustrate attraverso l’analisi di uno dei racconti più significativi della produzione narrativa di Jhumpa Lahiri, Da Mrs Sen, contenuto nella prima raccolta di racconti dell’autrice, L’interprete dei malanni (1999; vincitrice del Premio Pulitzer nel 2000). In questo racconto sono utilizzati procedimenti, motivi e temi tipici della narrativa della Lahiri, quali il punto di vista dei bambini, la solitudine e l’identità femminile, l’estraneità quale essenza della condizione umana, il cibo e i colori come segni della diversità culturale. Da Mrs Sen rappresenta l’incontro di due culture e due solitudini, quelle di Eliot, un ragazzino americqno, e quelle della sua baby sitter bengalese, Mrs Sen. L’analisi del racconto procede per via induttiva, focalizzando sulle immagini del testo così come esse si presentano all’immaginazione del lettore. Ne risulta che le rappresentazioni dell’India e dell’Occidente sono costruite anteticamente attraverso le opposizioni colore/non colore, pieno/vuoto, caldo/freddo, coperto/nudo, odoroso/inodore: attraverso il punto di vista smascheratorio di Eliot queste antitesi sveleranno che quello che costituiva la sua “accustome
