The obsidian mirror The obsidian mirror
Maria do Socorro Reis Amorin
Ilha do Desterro , 2008,
Abstract: The author James Norman is an American who has always lived in Mexico during the summer. He seems to love Mexican - Indian traditions and he is well acquainted with the pre-historic culture as it is shown in his book: "The Obsidian Mirror". "The Obsidian Mirror" is a mysterious story about an archeologist: Quigley that lives in a small village in Mexico-San Marcos. He is searching for antiques that belong to some tribes of pre-historic Indians in order to find out their mysteries. Quigley becomes so engaged in his work that his mind has reached a stage that is impossible to separate between Quigley the archeologist, and Quigley as an ancient Indian. The culture, the myth, the sensation of Omen - characteristics of the Indians are within himself. As a result, Quigley acts sometimes as a real Indian.

Assessment of the Quality of Bottled/Sachet Water in the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Municipality (TM) of Ghana
D. Nana Asamoah and R. Amorin
Research Journal of Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology , 2011,
Abstract: This study aims at assessing the quality of water from bottled/sachet water in the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Municipality. Tarkwa is an ancient mining town sited in an Equatorial climate in Ghana and experiences high population growth rate as a result of mining activities. Due to this, water resources are under pressure as Ghana Water Company Ltd., (GWCL) produces only 55% of the Municipality’s water requirements. The population is skeptical of using other sources of water for domestic purposes because of mining activities. Therefore, majority of the people in the Municipality depend on bottled/sachet water for drinking. This study presents and discusses the results of physicochemical and microbial analyses of six bottled/sachet water samples. The water source of these water producing companies is groundwater. Two sets of samples were collected from each company during the rainy season and the dry season to account for seasonal variations. A representative sample for each company was analyzed by the Chemistry/Bacteria Division of the GWCL, Takoradi for physicochemical parameters including pH, temperature, taste, electrical conductivity, true colour, turbidity total dissolved solids, total suspended solids, total alkalinity, total hardness and coliform bacteria. Metals and anions analysed were Ca, Mn, K, Na, Cr, Cd, Sb, Ba. BO3-, total Fe, Pb, Zn, As, NO3-, NO2- SO4-2, PO4-3, (NH3-N), F-, Cl-, CN-, carbonate hardness and bicarbonate hardness. Bacteria analysed were total Coliforms, Escherichia coli and total Heterotrophic bacteria. The concentrations of most of the investigated parameters in the drinking water samples from Tarkwa Nsuaem Municipality were within the permissible limits of the World Health Organization (WHO)/Ghana Standard Board (GSB) drinking water quality guidelines except pH, Ba and Cl- contents. The pH of SKFDW and DLFWD were respectively 5.5 and 6.31; acidic and lower than the recommended WHO/GSB guideline of 6.5-8.5. The Ba contents in the water samples of ASBFDW and TLFDW Companies were respectively 1.8 and 1.9 mg/L, which are higher than the WHO/GSB threshold values of 0.7 mg/L. SKFDW water samples gave higher analytical Cl- value of 274 mg/L which is above the recommended WHO/GSB threshold values of 0-250 mg/L. These packaged waters must be treated before use.
Effects of Drilling Fluid Exposure to Oil and Gas Workers Presented with Major Areas of Exposure and Exposure Indicators
Eric Broni-Bediako,R. Amorin
Research Journal of Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology , 2010,
Abstract: Drilling fluid is any fluid which is circulated through a well in order to remove cuttings from a wellbore. They are used broadly in the oil and gas industry, on exploration rigs, and are critical to ensuring a safe and productive oil or gas well. During drilling, a large volume of fluids are circulated through the well and into open, partially enclosed or completely enclosed systems at elevated temperatures. When these drilling fluids are agitated during circulating process there is significant potential for chemical exposure to workers and subsequent health effects. This study seeks to identify major areas of drilling fluid exposure and health hazard associated with the use of drilling fluid. The study also presents some challenges in setting drilling fluid exposure standard which has always not been given the same attention or concern as effects and risk management of drilling fluid. Some exposure indicators are also presented.
Theoretical Analysis of Gravity-controlled Waterfloods
T.N. Ofei and R. Amorin
Research Journal of Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology , 2011,
Abstract: Gravity waterflooding (also known as “dumpflooding”) is a process in which water flows from a high pressure aquifer zone to a low pressure oil-producing zone using natural gravity. The water flows through a well connecting the two zones, enhancing the oil sweep into a producing well. This process is economically attractive due to the absence of injection surface facilities and injection fluid costs. This research quantifies the rate of fluid transfer from a high pressure aquifer zone to a low pressure oil producing zone. Detailed theoretical equations are derived to evaluate the rate of water injection from an aquifer into an oil reservoir with a gas cap by dumpflooding. Two cases considered are: (1) A finite aquifer injecting into a finite oil reservoir with a gas cap, and (2) An infinite aquifer injecting into a finite oil reservoir with a gas cap. A single-well model has also been built using an Excel spreadsheet to solve the ordinary differential equations using the bisection iterative technique.
Application of Minimum Curvature Method to Wellpath Calculations
Richard Amorin,E. Broni-Bediako
Research Journal of Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology , 2010,
Abstract: A major drawback of directional and horizontal well drilling is the numerous complex computations required to be done while planning a well. These computations are very stressful and time consuming especially when done manually. One of the objectives of this study was to develop a user friendly Excel Spreadsheet program that would make the computations of these well trajectory parameters easier, faster and accurate. An Excel Spreadsheet program was developed employing the Minimum Curvature method (and for other five methods) for wellpath design and planning. This would help increase the usage of these trajectory methods especially the Minimum Curvature method. The program is able to provide pictorial views both in the vertical and horizontal plane of the trajectory of the drilling bit’s position in the wellbore. This w ould therefore help to minimize risk and uncertainty surrounding hitting predetermined target. This is possible because deviations can easily be detected and the necessary directional corrections or adjustment be initiated to re-orient the drilling bit to the right course before (planning process) and during the drilling operations.
Optimization of the Cultivation of Donor Mesenchymal Stromal Cells for Clinical Use in Cellular Therapy  [PDF]
Vanessa Valim, Bruna Amorin, Annelise Pezzi, Maria Aparecida Lima da Silva, Ana Paula Alegretti, Lucia Silla
CellBio (CellBio) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/cellbio.2014.31003
Abstract: Mesenchymal stromal cells(MSC)have shown their benefits in graft-versus-host disease(GVHD), with five unsettled matters: 1) MSCs expansion in medium with Fetal Bovine Serum(FBS)and its risk of xenoreaction; 2) The number of cells indicated for therapy that is relatively high, with the need to optimize the expansion, number and time wise; 3) The utilization of third party donors; 4) Culture passage number(P);and 5) Source of the cells. This study was designed to determine the superiority of the Platelet Lysates(PL)over FBS on the expansion of MSC, the optimal cell plating density and days between each pass, and to investigate if donor total nucleated cells(TNC)obtained from the washouts of discharged bags and filters of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation(HSCT)can be expanded to be used at clinical grade. TNC were removed, plated and after the first passage were cultivated in different concentrations with FBS or PL, and the number of days to reach 80% of confluence was observed. Next, cultures with the same plating density were fed either with PL or with FBS and after seven days counted to analyze how much they had grown in that period. The proliferation of mesenchymal stromal cells in the presence of PL and SFB was averaged 11.88 and 2.5 times, respectively, in a period of 7 days. The highest concentration of plating cells using PL took less time to reach confluence as compared with the three lower ones. This study suggests that the PL is the best choice as a supplement to expand MSC and to allow the proliferation of enough number of MSC at P2 for clinical use.
Clinical decision-making to facilitate appropriate patient management in chiropractic practice: 'the 3-questions model'
Lyndon G Amorin-Woods, Gregory F Parkin-Smith
Chiropractic & Manual Therapies , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/2045-709x-20-6
Abstract: This paper explores the concept and elements of defensive problem-solving practice, with a view to developing a model of agile, pragmatic decision-making amenable to real-world application. A theoretical framework that reflects the elements of this approach will be offered in order to validate the potential of a so called '3-Questions Model';Clinical decision-making is considered to be a key characteristic of any modern healthcare practitioner. It is, thus, prudent for chiropractors to re-visit the concept of defensible practice with a view to facilitate capable clinical decision-making and competent patient examination skills. In turn, the perception of competence and trustworthiness of chiropractors within the wider healthcare community helps integration of chiropractic services into broader healthcare settings."The exclusivity of medical knowledge and skill is being broken down. Inter-professional learning is now commonplace in medical education and seems likely to increase. Professional boundaries are being blurred as more and more things that were once the sole domain of doctors are being undertaken by other health care professionals. None of us works alone any longer, but in multidisciplinary teams in which we depend upon the expertise of others. This is not a diminution of medicine, but a strengthening of health care. We must acknowledge that, more than ever before, knowledge is available to patients and the public."Sir Graeme Catto, Past-President of the UK General Medical Council (2005) [1]Skills and competence in clinical decision-making are taught in various undergraduate healthcare programmes and cultivated through clinical experience. Many working diagnoses or clinical impressions, especially those for musculoskeletal (MSK) presentations, are developed through a process of exclusion, particularly when the context of diagnosis is uncertain. In other words, a definitive diagnosis may be elusive; however, a decision on management is still required.Therefor
Avalia??o do potencial das imagens quickbird ortorretificadas para o mapeamento das propriedades localizadas na área de expans?o e vazios urbanos
Amorin, Amilton;Camargo, Paulo de Oliveira;Miyashita, Priscila Midori;
Boletim de Ciências Geodésicas , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1982-21702010000300006
Abstract: the images obtained by the sensor aboard the satellite quickbird provide the applications in many fields due to its high spatial resolution, spectral and temporal and inexpensive to purchase compared to conventional aerial photogrammetry. the supporting points, using the gps navigation along with the programs and async gar2rnx, make post-processing of the observable l1 carrier providing the three-dimensional positioning possible. this paper aims at analysing the positional accuracy provided by the orthorectified quickbird image, for use in pre-registration of properties located in the urban expansion area, as well as in empty urban and that are often not registered physically, affecting the urban realestate cadastre and specially damaging the local territorial planning and management. according to the obtained results, it was possible to map products useful to local governments (city hall) following the standard of cartographic accuracy, fitting into class a for the scale 1:10000, 1:5000 and 1:3000, and class b for the scale 1:2000, and with attractive costs compared to other methods of removal.
