Abstract: despite the great social relevance, the theme quality of life presents theoretical/methodological inaccuracies, fact that makes difficult the investigation, the dialogue among the different areas that deal with the theme, and mainly, the application of the knowledge produced in the improvement of the population's quality of life. in order to contribute for a clarification of the concept, this study had as objective, through the reading, discussion and analysis of the specialized literature, to present the main approaches, concepts and proposals of classification and assessment of quality of life. it was verified that the approaches and conceptualizations about quality of life are presented in the literature in a varied way and, many times, divergent. the lack of theoretical consensus makes many researches to use concepts as health, well-being and life style, as synonyms for quality of life. new approaches in epistemological study of the topic are necessary as well as studies analyzing the quality of life in times of intervention are needed.

In sports, the study of these relationships is important because the bouts may influence the results of training and competitions. High rates of injury to the lumbar region have been reported for elite female canoe paddlers. The objective of this study was to assess the influence of low back pain on body balance in female athletes of the Brazilian flatwater canoe team. Athletes with low back pain (in the last week) were compared to those without pain in the two-leg and single-leg stance, with the eyes open and closed, using an AccuSway Plus force platform (Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.). The variables analyzed were the amplitude of the pressure center in the anteroposterior direction (COPap) and medial-lateral direction (COPml). The results showed higher body ins-tability for athletes with low back pain. For COPml, no significant difference between the two groups was observed for only one condition (single-leg stance) (p = 0.901), and for COPap, no significant difference was observed for two conditions (p = 0.414 and p = 0.567), i.e., single-leg stance and eyes closed.

Abstract: motivation can interfere with the music profession, especially by the constant need for instrumental practice. however, the literature does not show clearly the main motivating factors for this professional activity. thus, we sought to identify the factors related to motivation for developing the work of 22 musicians from an unprofessional orchestra in southern brazil. the motivation was assessed by questionnaire ferreira et al. (2006) with 28 questions that seek to assess the motivation for the development of professional activities related to the organization of work, achievement and power, with the performance and motivation associated with involvement. for the data analysis was performed descriptive statistics through average and standard deviation and factor analysis. the results showed that the factors with the highest score are associated with motivation for professional achievement and power within the orchestra and the motivation for the development of professional activities related to the organization of work. these information reflect themselves in the results of factor analysis and also indicated that both domains as bigger explanatory power to the motivation for the development of practice with the instrument. in general, one can say that the musicians are motivated to carry out the work.
