Developing Scintillation Light Readout Simulation for the SBND experiment
D. Garcia-Gamez
Physics , 2015,
Abstract: Detection of scintillation light can play several important roles in LArTPCs. Increased collection efficiency could result in the improvement of time, energy, and position resolution. The SBND collaboration is developing detailed MC simulations to study the performance of different types of light systems in the LArSoft framework. Due to the vast number of photons typically produced in neutrino physics events, a full optical simulation becomes extremely hard to run on reasonable time scales. I will describe how the SBND simulation tackles these problems and its current status for two of the light detection systems considered by SBND: (i) a traditional TPB-coated PMT based system and (ii) a system based on TPB-coated reflector foils to increase collection efficiency without increasing the number of photodetectors.

The rise in metabolic syndrome (MetS) is accompanied by a decrease in milk and dairy consumption and an increase in sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) consumption, with SSB possibly displacing dairy products in the diet. Our main objective was to determine whether young individuals not meeting the dairy recommendations of 3 servings per day were at greater risk for MetS. In a cross-sectional design, a food frequency questionnaire was answered by Mexican college applicants (n = 339). Medical examination at a primary health care center and evaluation for presence of MetS risk factors was completed as part of an ongoing collaborative project. Relative risk analyses were used to assess the impact of meeting or not the dairy recommendations for the presence of MetS. The MetS prevalence was 10. Three-fourths (76%) of participants were not meeting the daily recommendations. Individuals who failed to meet dairy recommendations were at 2.9 times greater risk for MetS when controlling for age, sex, family history of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, and physical activity. We did not found that SSB were displacing dairy products in the diet. Still, our data support the importance of meeting daily dairy recommendations for the prevention of MetS in young adults.

Through a Lattice Darkly: Shedding Light on Electron-Phonon Coupling in the High Cuprates
D. R. Garcia,A. Lanzara
Advances in Condensed Matter Physics , 2010, DOI: 10.1155/2010/807412
Abstract: With its central role in conventional BCS superconductivity, electron-phonon coupling appears to play a more subtle role in the phase diagram of the high-temperature superconducting cuprates. Their added complexity due to potentially numerous competing phases, including charge, spin, orbital, and lattice ordering, makes teasing out any unique phenomena challenging. In this review, we present our work using angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) exploring the role of the lattice on the valence band electronic structure of the cuprates. We introduce the ARPES technique and its unique ability to the probe the effect of bosonic renormalization (or “kink”) on near- E F band structure. Our survey begins with the establishment of the ubiquitous nodal cuprate kink leading to how isotope substitution has shed a critical new perspective on the role and strength of electron-phonon coupling. We continue with recently published work connecting the phonon dispersion seen with inelastic X-ray scattering (IXS) to the location of the kink observed by ARPES near the nodal point. Finally, we present very recent and ongoing ARPES work examining how induced strain through chemical pressure provides a potentially promising avenue for understanding the broader role of the lattice to the superconducting phase and larger cuprate phase diagram.
Palliative Care Among Chumash People
James D. Adams,Cecilia Garcia
Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine , 2005, DOI: 10.1093/ecam/neh090
Abstract: Chumash Healers used breathing therapy and counseling to keep patients involved in daily life and to avoid depression. Heat therapy, massage and pain medications were used to help with pain. Another primary function of the Healer was to help the patient sleep as normally as possible, possibly using mugwort or momoy. Nutrition was considered by Healers in treating their patients. The overall concern of the Healer was to help maintain the daily routine of village life during the normal process of the death of a village member.
The Advantages of Traditional Chumash Healing
James D. Adams,Cecilia Garcia
Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine , 2005, DOI: 10.1093/ecam/neh072
Abstract: Chumash healing has been practiced in California for ∼13 000 years. Chumash healers treat their patients with prayer, laughter, dreaming, phytotherapy, aromatherapy, healing ceremonies and other techniques. Healing involves first healing the spirit, then healing the body. Chumash people still maintain their unique identity. Chumash Healers still practice the ancient healing arts in California. This lecture is a brief introduction to Chumash Healing.
Spirit, Mind and Body in Chumash Healing
James D. Adams,Cecilia Garcia
Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine , 2005, DOI: 10.1093/ecam/neh130
Abstract: This article discusses the importance of the spirit and mind in health and well-being among Chumash people. Prayer was the first step in healing since prayer invites the participation of God. Initiation practices are discussed that encouraged young people to develop the maturity and spiritual strength to become productive members of society. Pictographs were used in healing usually not only as a relaxation therapy, but also as a mode of education. A supportive environment was an important factor in Chumash health care, since the support of friends helps, comforts and relieves anxiety that is detrimental to healing.
Women's Health Among the Chumash
James D. Adams,Cecilia Garcia
Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine , 2006, DOI: 10.1093/ecam/nek021
Abstract: Plants were, and still are, widely used for a number of conditions affecting women in California. This article discusses traditional remedies of the Chumash for dysmenorrhea, premenstrual syndrome, feminine hygiene, heavy menstruation, urinary tract infections, parturition, lactation, infant care, menopause, sexually transmitted diseases, fertility, contraception and abortions. Many plants are presented including Artemisia douglasiana, Paeonia californica, Trichostema lanatum, Salvia apiana, Ephedra viridis, Leymus condensatus, Vitis californica, Eschscholzia californica, Rosa californica, Scirpus acutus, Anemopsis californica and Phoradendron macrophyllum. By providing the specific uses of plants for specific diseases and discussing chemistry, efficacy and safety concerns for each plant, we hope that this article gives direction to women seeking to use plants in their health care.
Osteopatia tóxica hipertrófica associada a mixocondrosarcoma pulmonar metastático: descri??o de um caso
Lima, F. D Garcia de;
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 1955, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02761955000200034
Abstract: the author describes a case of metastatis pulmonar mixocondrosarcome associated to a complete picture of a hypertrophic toxic ostheopathic condition. reference is made to the difficulties observed in its diagnosis, due to the silent evolution of the tumor, which through the autopsy was found to spread all over the right hemitorax. attention is called to the importance of hyperthrophic ostheopathy as a possible indication of a primitive or metastic pulmonar cancer, still without symptoms.

Abstract: Ambientes naturais recebem cada vez mais visitantes. No entanto, com o aumento deste fluxo, aumenta-se a preocupa o com o meio ambiente. O ecoturismo proporciona o contato com as áreas naturais que, aliado à educa o ambiental, possibilita um maior conhecimento acerca do espa o através da interpreta o ambiental, estimulando a conserva o. O Parque Nacional da Lagoa do Peixe (Parna), no Rio Grande do Sul, apesar de n o estar oficialmente aberto a visita o, recebe visitantes durante todo ano. Esta área n o possui delimita o física, impossibilitando o controle do fluxo de visitantes. Teve-se como objetivo principal da pesquisa analisar a visita o praticada atualmente e as a es de sensibiliza o ambiental desenvolvidas com os visitantes do Parque Nacional da Lagoa do Peixe. Ainda, estabelecer o perfil do visitante, identificando e verificando se acontece a sensibiliza o do mesmo, colaborando para a conserva o do Parque. Neste estudo, foi utilizada a pesquisa bibliográfica e o comtemplando dades de conserva ecoturismo e a educa documental. Os dados foram obtidos através de questionários aplicados junto aos visitantes do Parque a fim de nortear o tipo de visita o, o conhecimento a respeito do Parque e das boas práticas conhecidas pelos visitantes, bem como as informa es sócio-econ micas dos mesmos; entrevistas com servidor do Parque e responsável pela agência receptiva em Mostardas com intuito de analisar a visita o feita e identificar quais as orienta es fornecidas aos visitantes; e, ainda, observa o individual sistemática n o-participante para examinar as condi es físicas do Parque. A amostra adquirida com os questionários foi definida como n o probabilística intencional, pois n o se buscou representar o universo de visitantes do Parque em estudo, mas uma amostra deste. Foi considerado um total de 44 respondentes no período de 23 de outubro de 2010 a 23 de novembro de 2010. Com base nos dados coletados, n o s o realizadas atividades de sensibiliza o e interpreta o ambiental do espa o visitado nem s o fornecidas orienta es sobre as boas práticas em áreas naturais. Além disso, a comunidade local n o tem participa o significativa no desenvolvimento do turismo, pois os dados obtidos mostraram que o artesanato e as tradi es locais têm sido pouco valorizados. Contudo, a visita o desenvolvida no Parque n o pode ser definida como ecoturismo, podendo ser denominada apenas turismo de natureza ou turismo em áreas naturais, n o contemplando os princípios fundamentais da modalidade ecoturismo. Conclui-se que, o Parque n o disp e de um programa de edu
