Percursos alternativos - o Parkour enquanto fenómeno (sub)cultural
Carvalho,Rui Gon?alves de; Pereira,Ana Luísa;
Revista Portuguesa de Ciências do Desporto , 2008,
Abstract: through this work, we proposed to analyse a group of urban alternative sports participants to try to understand if they are, or not, a part of a subculture. our data was collected throughout participant observation as a means to obtain the information and was complemented with semi-structured interviews. these data were submitted to content analysis, from which resulted our categorical system. the categories for analysis were: i) ideology; ii) social resistance; iii) identity construction; iv) symbology and aesthetics; v) independency from global space and vi) relationship with space of practice. we concluded that parkour has a unique ideology; a group dynamics with it?s own rules and conducts; an aesthetic related to the way it explores the space of practice on one hand, and with functionality of the clothes worn, on the other hand, a sense of independence towards the evolution of the global scene; and a new way of relating to urban space.
Espa os paralelos : produ es e apropria es através dos desportos urbanos alternativos
Rui Gon?alves de Carvalho,Ana Luísa Pereira
Revista da Faculdade de Letras : Sociologia , 2010,
Abstract: Several studies conducted on the problems associated with sedentary lifestyle are focused on the need for moderate physical exercise, but do not appeal to younger populations because they are aimed at physical activity devoid of the most valued aspects by this population. The purpose of this study is to analyze the city of Oporto by direct observation of informal sports practitioners, through the use of interviews, mapping of the city's places used, and the use of photography as a complementary means of data collection. Thus, it is possible to understand what are the characteristics that make an urban space suitable for informal sporting activities, as well as examine how these spaces are distributed throughout the city, describing the areas of highest concentration in order to understand the production and appropriation space through alternative urban sports
Searching for evidences for Training in Basic Life Support - a systematic literature review
Tatiane Suely Alves,Ana Luísa P. Cogo
Online Brazilian Journal of Nursing , 2006,
Abstract: Training in Basic Life Support (BLS) done by health care providers, such as nurses, is a strategy for the qualification of health care received by the population in general due to the relevance of prompt care to emergency victims. The present exploratory study was a literary review whose objective was to seek evidence of the efficacy of training in BLS for non-health care providers. Eighteen articles were selected from journals published between 2000 and 2005 on the database of the BIREME, according to key words that met the study’s objective. Analysis categories were organized according to the topic investigated, types of study, population, sample, methodology, and duration of BLS training. The studies reported herein came predominantly from European countries, were designed for adults (88.9%), and evaluated the retention of knowledge and skills in BLS (50%), using the teaching technique approved by the American Heart Association (39.1%). Of these, two (11.1%) were retrospective studies; the others (88.9%) evaluated ongoing trainings. Trainings designed for laypeople aged 14 and up and given in theoretical-practical lessons divided in different modules showed effectiveness. Retention of skills was found in trainings repeated every six months. The inclusion of the hearing impaired in the performance of BLS was also demonstrated as possible. Further studies designed to develop BLS trainings in Brazil should be conducted in similar and significant samples and populations.

Alzheimer’s Disease: A Clinical Practice-Oriented Review
Luísa Alves,Ana Sofia A. Correia,Rita Miguel,Paulo Bugalho
Frontiers in Neurology , 2012, DOI: 10.3389/fneur.2012.00063
Abstract: Investigation in the field of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), the commonest cause of dementia, has been very active in recent years and it may be difficult for the clinician to keep up with all the innovations and to be aware of the implications they have in clinical practice. The authors, thus, reviewed recent literature on the theme in order to provide the clinician with an updated overview, intended to support decision-making on aspects of diagnosis and management. This article begins to focus on the concept of AD and on its pathogenesis. Afterward, epidemiology and non-genetic risk factors are approached. Genetics, including genetic risk factors and guidelines for genetic testing, are mentioned next. Recommendations for diagnosis of AD, including recently proposed criteria, are then reviewed. Data on the variants of AD is presented. First approach to the patient is dealt with next, followed by neuropsychological evaluation. Biomarkers, namely magnetic resonance imaging, single photon emission tomography, FDG PET, PiB PET, CSF tau, and Aβ analysis, as well as available data on their diagnostic accuracy, are also discussed. Factors predicting rate of disease progression are briefly mentioned. Finally, non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatments, including established and emerging drugs, are addressed.

Abstract: Linoleic (LA) and α-linolenic acids (ALA) are considered essential fatty acids (EFA) because they are not produced by the human body. This way, EFAs sources must come from the diet. The primary dietary source of n-3 fatty acids is ALA, found in seeds and seed oils. Other important sources are fish oils such as tuna, salmon and herring. Currently, numerous studies suggest possible benefits of essential fatty acids in human health, such as in cardiovascular, cognitive and eye health, and also during pregnancy and childhood. This paper also discusses the impact of fatty acids in human metabolism, and the available evidence regarding its risks. It addresses the relevant debate regarding a general ban of trans fatty acids (TFA) from the world food market, because of the cardiovascular risks associated with its consumption.

Health (Health) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/health.2016.81002
Abstract: It is generally expected that the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games will bring health and social benefits to their host city and to Brazil. This assumption comes from “common sense”, as a logical conclusion arising from the fact that host cities “inspire” and stimulate lifestyle changes. Benefits are also expected on tourism, self-image, architecture and the economy of the country as a whole. But are these expectations real and evidence-based? What parts of these “facts” are concrete and which ones are not? This paper suggests available ways of quantifying positive effects of hosting an Olympic Game, and puts the focus of this approach on the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games and their true legacy, seeking scientific certainties.

Abstract: genome scan was used to identify chromosomal regions and genes that control quantitative trait loci (qtl) of economic importance using 1129 animals from f1 and f2 populations obtained from crosses between meishan and commercial dutch breeds (large white and landrace). animals were genotyped for molecular markers covering the entire genome. the chromosomes 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 13, 14 and 19 were studied for intramuscular fat (imf, %) and backfat thickness (bt, mm) and the chromosomes 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 13, 17 and 19 for body weight gain (bwg, g/day) from 25 to 90 kg of live weight. qtl analyses using bayesian methodology were applied to genetic model combining the marker-linked qtl, finite polygenic (fpm) and infinite polygenic (ipm) effects. the summaries of estimated parameters were based on marginal posterior distributions obtained by markov chain monte carlo (mcmc) methods. in general, the results indicated one qtl for bt, independent of the prior. it was not possible to detect qtl for imf or bwg probably due to non-informative markers or to the absence of qtl segregating in the studied chromosomes. this study suggested the advantage of using a combination of genetic models to analyze experimental data instead of fitting only the polygenic or the oligogenic model.
