Georgina Contreras Landgrave, Oscar Donovan Casas Pati?o, Manuel Leonardo Ibarra Espinosa, Esteban Jaime Camacho Ruiz, Carolina Tetelboin Henrion
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2018.83017
Abstract: Introduction: In Mexico the right to health protection is recognized in the Constitution and within the framework of the state reforms, in this document the reforms concerning the health policies are found. In Mexico this process began in the eighties from the last century. A strategy for its implementation has been the establishment of the Popular Health Insurance, strategy which has had special features in different country regions. One of these regions is the State of Mexico. Since its inception in 2002, the Popular Insurance propounds to join the task so that by the year 2010 all Mexican population had coverage of healthcare services at 100 per cent. After sixteen years from its beginning, the first documentary revision is made identifying if it has achieved its population coverage goal. Method: Different official documents which present the development of its implementation specifically in the State of Mexico are revised. Results: In México, the Popular Insurance as part of the reform to the policies to its establishment and implementation in the State of Mexico, using the same existing health structure appropriating physical and human resources. In terms of the services it grants, it neither cover all those that the society from the State of Mexico demands, nor does it grant the necessary medicine to its care.

Journal of Cancer Therapy (JCT) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jct.2013.46125

Recurrent eccrine syringomatous carcinoma is an extremely rare adnexal tumor predominantly found in the head and neck region. We present a case of a 75-year-old woman with a 7-year history of recurrent syringoid eccrine carcinoma in the scalp and auricle. She had undergone five previous oncologic resections and declined further oncologic ablation of the auricle, including temporal bone and external ear canal resection. We performed five sessions of palliative photodynamic therapy using topical aminolevulinic acid HCL 20% (ALA) and between 25 and 33 pulses of Intense Pulsed Light (Quantum) with an intensity of 30 Joules. The ALA incubation time was 3 hours, while the time between each session was 4 weeks. This treatment helped to control ulceration, pain, and swelling. We saw the patient 1 month after the last treatment, by that time she moved and we lost contact.

An Alternative View to the Cause of Market Failures: A Dynamic Approach  [PDF]
Salvador Contreras
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2014.47069

This paper presents an alternative view to the cause and size of market failures. The work here suggest that the size of the market failure is not man made per se but rather given a full set of initial conditions it is endogenous to the dynamical forces at play. It is shown that the level and variance of market failures is tied to the location of the steady state (i.e. level of development). The paper finds that only changes to the location of the steady state produces changes to the potential level of the market failure. This paper adds to the increasing body of literature the notion that institutional change is not a sufficient condition to sustained economic development.

An Analogical Hermeneutic Approach to Bioethics  [PDF]
David S. Contreras Islas
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2018.81004
Abstract: Bioethics has the hermeneutical task of interpreting scientific knowledge produced by the biological and social sciences in order to propose moral norms and values that are adequate to it. Therefore, it needs to account for the process of translating descriptive statements into normative ones, without falling prey to the naturalistic fallacy. It also requires an interdisciplinary conception of human nature as the basis for the hermeneutical process. That conception should avoid a univocal anthropocentrism as well as an equivocal biocentrism and reconcile the biological and historical dimensions that constitute the human being. This paper examines analogical hermeneutics, as proposed and developed by the Mexican philosopher Mauricio Beuchot, as a largely unplumbed resource for meaningfully illumining inescapable challenges and tensions at the core of bioethics. In brief, the author suggests that analogical hermeneutics can provide bioethics with a philosophical framework for the normative interpretation of descriptive statements. An analogical-hermeneutical approach is suggested for other bioethical problems, such as the elaboration of an interdisciplinary notion of human nature or the search for alternatives to anthropocentric and biocentric positions.
Flatness measurement using a grazing incidence interferometer
Alcalá Ochoa, N;Mendiola, G;Landgrave, J.E.A.;
Revista mexicana de física , 2007,
Abstract: the purpose of this work is to report results of flatness measurements using a grazing incidence interferometer. we show that this interferometer provides enough accuracy to measure nominally flat polishing tools and rough surfaces. in order to calculate the deformation of the surface under test, an interferogram is analyzed with digital imaging techniques based on fourier methods. we found experimentally that the entire surface topography can be recovered with errors lower than ~ 0.6 μm, or ~ λeqv/6, where λeqv = 3.6441 μm is the equivalent wavelength of the interferometer.

Abstract: El propósito de este trabajo es el de reportar resultados de medición de planicidad usando un interferómetro de incidencia oblicua. Se muestra que este interferómetro proporciona la exactitud necesaria para medir la planicidad de herramientas de pulido y superficies rugosas. Con el propósito de evaluar las irregularidades de la superficie bajo prueba, el interferograma obtenido se analiza con técnicas de procesamiento digital de imágenes basadas en métodos de Fourier. Encontramos experimentalmente que la superficie completa se puede medir con errores menores a ~ 0.6 μm, o ~ λeqv/6, donde λeqv = 3.6441 μm es la longitud de onda equivalente del interferómetro.
Climate Action Plan for the City of La Paz, BCS, Mexico: A Tool for Public Policy in a Coastal City  [PDF]
Antonina Ivanova, Alfredo Bermudez- Contreras
Current Urban Studies (CUS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/cus.2014.23024
Abstract: As a result of its coastal location and severe water scarcity condition, the city of La Paz, Baja Cali-fornia Sur, Mexico, is extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. This work presents the main findings of the Climate Change Action Plan for the City of La Paz and Neighbouring Areas (PACCLAP) including its development process and the main results of its two larger components: first, the vulnerability to climate change in the area and the adaptation measures suggested; and second, the local greenhouse gas emissions inventory and the recommended mitigation measures. In addition, the proposed actions have important impacts directly related with the Municipality Development Plan, thus making the PACCLAP a valuable instrument to support current and future decision makers in the formulation of public policies to foster a more sustainable development and improve the wellbeing of the local society.
Critical Reflection about Knowledge Management in a Participatory Planning, Monitoring & Evaluation Course  [PDF]
Alberto Un Jan, Vilma Contreras
Voice of the Publisher (VP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/vp.2016.21001
Abstract: This article reports an initiative to manage knowledge in a Participatory Planning, Monitoring & Evaluation (PPM&E) course given at Wageningen University Research Centre (WURC), from the experience of the authors when they attended the course. The United Nations Population Fund, UNFPA [1], shows the importance of participatory monitoring and evaluation (M&E), and high- lights the difference and principles which distinguish conventional M&E from participatory M&E. For Goergens and Zall [2], vital questions are: “How will we know success when we achieve it?” and “So what?”. M&E helps answer these questions. The Royal Tropical Institute [3] works on streng- thening primary stakeholder involvement when applied to village participation in rural develop- ment. The way WURC [4] looks at PPM&E is as “Managing and Learning for Impact”. WURC focuses on M&E, and relates the application of it to manage for impact. The article shows how knowledge is managed to identify the meaning, contents and application of PPM&E, based on two versions of the PPM&E course given in 2012 and 2013 at WURC. Experiences from applying the knowledge acquired in the 2012 course, after it was ended, are presented by participants who worked on PPM&E projects. The participants confirm a useful application of the PPM&E tools. Participants at the 2012 course report applications of the course to their jobs, and mention the different tools they apply. Next, experiences during the 2013 course are presented. Emphasis is given on the use of PPM&E tools during the course; assistants are reporting initial applications. The results shown explain the benefits of attending the course, for its later application. A survey has been run by the authors to both groups to measure the usefulness of the tools explained during the course. With this annual course, WURC promotes the combination of information with experience, context, interpretation and reflection; the information about experience in PPM&E has a high value for participants and is prepared to be applied in decision making and in back home action plans prepared by the participants. In this sense, WURC contributes to knowledge management. The results shown explain the benefits of attending the course, for its later application. Also, the course explains the benefit of monitoring and evaluation, and highlights the difference and principles which distinguish “conventional monitoring & evaluation” from “participatory monitoring & evaluation”. Knowledge in PPM&E has been managed in
