FROM SPICES TO OIL: SEA POWER AND THE SEA ROUTES AROUND THE CAPE
C.M. Meyer
Scientia Militaria : South African Journal of Military Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5787/18-2-405
Abstract: "He who is master of the sea is master of world trade. And he who is master of world trade is master of the riches of the earth and of the earth itself" Sir Walter Raleigh, quoted by the former Commander-in-Chief of the Soviet Navy, Admiral S.G. Gorshkov. Introduction Sir Walter Raleigh, the famous English adventurer, died three hundred and seventy years ago, but his words are just as valid today, as any television news programme on convoy operations in the Persian Gulf will show. Warships from the USA, UK, France, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands have all been involved in patrols or minesweeping operations in the area to minimize threats to their oil supplies coming from the Gulf, the main export route of nine Middle Eastern countries possessing more than half of the world's proven oil reserves.

Soviet aims in Southern Africa: Economic considerations
C.M. Meyer
Scientia Militaria : South African Journal of Military Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5787/14-2-522
Abstract: While much has been said about the increasing involvement of the USSR in Southern Africa, little has been said about how and why the USSR wishes to achieve its aims in the sub-continent. Little has really changed since 1917, when Lenin himself declared bluntly that the scientific concept of dictatorship means neither more nor less than unlimited power, resting directly on force, not limited by anything, nor restricted by any laws, nor any absolute rules. Nothing else but that.
MISSILES AND AIRCRAFT (PART1)
C.M. Meyer
Scientia Militaria : South African Journal of Military Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5787/8-4-760
Abstract: Many sources maintain that the role played by air power in the 1973 Yom Kippur War was important. Other interpretations state that control of air space over the battlefield areas, (either by aircraft or anti-aircraft defences), was vital.
THE DEPLOYMENT OF SOVIET CHEMICAL FORCES IN AFGHANISTAN AND SOUTHEAST ASIA
C.M. Meyer,P. Theron
Scientia Militaria : South African Journal of Military Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5787/14-1-527
Abstract: 'And let there be no doubt: if hostilities should break out, the Soviet Army would use chemical weapons against its opponents.' Col Oleg Penkovsky Recently chemical warfare has become a most distinct feature of military technique. This can be said after it has been established that the Soviet Union used chemical agents in South-East Asia and Afghanistan. The first reports dealt with some unexplained deaths among the Hmong people of Laos and shortly afterwards came the discovery of tiny yellow deposits of pollen containing lethal toxins. In the wake of this discovery the United States alleged that Soviet-backed forces were using 'yellow rain' toxins in violation of treaties banning biological and chemical weapons. The Soviets' strong denial met with skepticism in Western circles, and did nothing to quell a raging debate over the precise interpretation of toxins found in Kampuchea and Afghanistan. In this overview the facts and reports pertaining to the topic under discussion are correlated and examined..
Seguridad y Calidad en Medicina Intensiva
Romero,C.M.;
Medicina Intensiva , 2009,
Abstract: the safety and quality care are two attributes of the health care that are closely intertwined. quality is a feature of the system that delivers health care, thereby improving it, we need a proper reorganization teamwork. measurements of quality are intended to assess whether the process of health care reaches the desired objectives, while avoiding the processes that predispose to harm the patient. the critically ill patients are vulnerable to medical errors, and may experience side effects preventable, often associated with: medications, mechanical ventilation, and intravascular devices. the evidence currently available suggest that the safety and quality of care can be improved. in this article presents some of the strategies and interventions developed to optimize the processes of care in critically ill patients, and improve the safety culture in the icu.
Reimmunization after bone marrow transplantation: current recommendations and perspectives
Machado, C.M.;
Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-879X2004000100021
Abstract: autologous and allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (bmt) recipients lose immune memory of exposure to infectious agents and vaccines accumulated through a lifetime and therefore need to be revaccinated. diphtheria toxoid, tetanus toxoid, pertussis vaccine (children <7 years old), haemophilus influenzae type b conjugate, 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide, inactivated influenza vaccine, inactivated polio vaccine and live-attenuated measles-mumps-rubella vaccine are the currently recommended vaccines to be included in a vaccination program after bmt. for most of them, the best time to vaccinate, the number of vaccine doses and/or the duration of immunity after vaccination have not been established. vaccination protocols vary greatly among bmt centers, suggesting that the lack of sufficient data has not permitted the formulation of reliable recommendations. the use of other vaccines and the perspectives for different vaccination protocols are analyzed in this review.
A física de Aristóteles: uma constru??o ingênua?
Porto, C.M;
Revista Brasileira de Ensino de Física , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1806-11172009000400019
Abstract: in this work we make a brief exposition on aristotle's physics. we show how aristotelic science constitutes a complex export towards a rational understanding of material reality, completely integrated to an organic and comprehensive thought. we intended to show, above all, how physical and cosmological aristotelic elements come from philosophical tenets as much as from empirical observations characteristic of human experience belonging to that historic-cultural moment.
The Extent to Which Incentives Influence Primary School Teachers Job Satisfaction in Botswana
C.M. Mhozya
The Social Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: A descriptive survey using questionnaires, individual interviews and career histories of primary school teachers was conducted to investigate job satisfaction of teachers as regard to teacher incentives. The study also went further to find out whether there is any link between incentives and gender. Stratified sample from the population of primary school teachers from urban as well as rural areas in Botswana was used. Qualitative data analyses were presented through the use of frequency tables, calculation of percentages and cross tabulations. Information from all sources was triangulated. The study reveals that statistically significant number of teachers were of the view that their salaries were not enough as compared to their workloads. They clearly showed that there were no well set promotion procedures as all progressions depended solely on the school heads recommendation which were confidential and corrupt. The results also showed that teachers did not link, incentives with gender matters instead they ascribed their disadvantages to their poor qualification and hierarchical structures that limits their progression. Three recommendations were made on the basis of the findings.
Effects of Organic Manure Types on Root-Gall Nematode Disease and African Yam Bean Yield
C.M. Agu
Plant Sciences Research , 2013,
Abstract: Evaluation of the effects of different organic manures on root-gall nematode disease on African yam bean was conducted in a sandy loam soil naturally infested with a root-gall nematode, Meloidogyne incognita. The experiment was conducted in a randomized complete block design with four replications. African yam bean plant were treated with sawdust, municipal garbage, swine, compost, poultry and farmyard manures at 2.5 ton ha 1. Results showed that severe root galls occurred on plants treated with sawdust and rare galls on those treated with poultry and farmyard manures. Growth and yield characteristics of the plant were also affected by root-gall damage at the various organic manure treatments.
