Abstract: This study describes the process of developing the Experiences of Violence in Couple and Family Relationships in University Students Questionnaire, its psychometric properties and the results of the pilot study. The research design used for this study was a nonexperimental, transversal co relational design. The nonrandomized sample consisted of 267 students. The final version of the questionnaire consisted of 41 items and four sub-scales which measured experiences with violence in a relationship as an Aggressor and as a Victim, Observed between the Parents and in the Parent-child relationship as a victim. The total scale and the subscales obtained adequate reliability indexes. On average, the sample reported ten experiences with violence in different contexts. The results of this study contribute data on the prevalence of violence in college students’ romantic and family relationships which in turn, provide valuable information for planning prevention and early intervention efforts with this population.

Abstract: the negative impacts related to environmental degradation have led to the formulation of the sustainable development paradigm. business environments, pressured by society seek this new development model through the implementation of environmental management systems. the main objective of this paper is to present a decisionmaking methodological framework, which prioritizes alternative options. the todim (interactive multicriteria decision making) method was used as one of the multicriteria decision-making tools. the case study is a branch multinational corporation, located in rio de janeiro, which provides temporary power and temperature control solutions. eight employees from different sectors of the company were selected to evaluate alternatives according to different qualitative criteria. it was shown that there is a conflict of opinion on ranking alternatives due to the interdependence of the alternatives and also because different actors see the problem from different perspectives and have different interests. the results showed that the main alternative, according to the majority of actors, is the implementation of an environmental education program to avoid wastes and to educate and inform employees about environmental issues. the second alternative chosen was the development of a spill containment plan.
Stress, Executive Function, Resilience and Quality of Life in Portuguese Subjects in Situations of Economic Insufficiency and Unemployment  [PDF]
Eduardo Gon?alves, Saul Neves de Jesus
Open Journal of Psychiatry (OJPsych) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojpsych.2015.54040
Abstract: The aim of this study is the investigation of the impact of stress of Portuguese subjects in situations of economic insufficiency and unemployment on executive function and quality of life and the coping strategies and resilience skills used. The sample consists of 41 participants. The psychometric instruments used are validated for Portuguese population, measure (perceived) stress, coping, material deprivation, resilience and quality of life, defined by World Health Organization. Executive function has been evaluated through performances at Stroop and Berg tasks. It has been concluded that, in this population, resilience skills and active coping strategies are positively correlated with quality of life. Quality of life is negatively correlated with material deprivation. Active coping strategies are supported by adequate executive function, which neurobiological substrate is dorso-lateral prefrontal cortex. Not active coping strategies correlate negatively with cognitive flexibility, suggesting the presence of a deficit at infero-lateral prefrontal cortex.
Vulnerability and Resilience to Stress and Immune and Neuroendocrine Function in Portuguese Subjects with Psychic Anomaly (Anxiety and Depression)  [PDF]
Eduardo Goncalves, Saul Neves de Jesus
Open Journal of Psychiatry (OJPsych) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojpsych.2015.54041
Abstract: The present study aimed to investigate the impact of chronic psychosocial stress and resilience, including at a biological level (immune and neuroendocrine function) in Portuguese citizens with psychic anomaly/mental disorder. The sample aggregated 69 participants. It has been used the following psychometric instruments: 21-item depression, anxiety and stress scales (DASS-21), in the Portuguese validated version; measuring state resilience (MSR), in the Portuguese validated version; the Portuguese scale of 23 questions on vulnerability to stress. Serum levels of cortisol, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, antibodies anti-viral capsid antigen of Epstein-Barr virus, triglycerides, high density lipoprotein-cholesterol and body mass index have been measured. It has been concluded that factors of vulnerability to stress and chronic stress, of social nature (lack of social support, adverse living conditions), correlate positively with depression, anxiety and stress, and, through alostatic load, are involved in a greater propensity for immune and neuroendocrine dysfunction in this population.

Abstract: The incidence of extrapulmonary tuberculosis has been increasing especially among immunocompromised patients. Mycobacterium tuberculosis skin infection is rare, accounting for 1.5% of all forms of the disease. We present a clinical case of 38 years old woman, Brazilian; with sexual risk behaviours that develops a sudden thoracoabdominal tumefaction of 4 - 5 cm. The investigation confirmed a metastatic tuberculous abscess in a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

Animal Manure as a Nitrogen Source to Grass  [PDF]
Anderson de Moura Zanine, Daniele de Jesus Ferreira
American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2015.67098
Abstract: The use of animal manure has been studied increasingly in recent years due to the excess waste in confinements, which generates great amounts of animal excreta; and as a result of the worsening petroleum crisis, the cost of mineral fertilizing products has increased. Thus, studies point out the potential of this waste to improve biotic and abiotic soil condition and nutritional value of forage. Substances ingested by animals that resist the action of gastric enzymes are enriched with large amounts of bacteria, other microorganisms and other substances to form residual feces, the main component of manure, which, together with the wash water from barnyard urine, form the slurry. The volume of living or dead bacteria in the feces represents 20% of total manure and it is from these that a large amount of nitrogen originates as protein. Due to this potentiality, animal manure can be used as an input in agriculture, impacting positively on production and forage productivity, and having a favorable effect on the environment.
Public Administration, NGOs and Private University in Teaching in Professional Master’s Courses  [PDF]
Diego Santos Vieira de Jesus, Jo?o Luiz de Figueiredo
Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.911125
Abstract: The aim is to examine the relations between public administration, NGOs and private universities in teaching in professional master’s courses, taking as a case study the relationship between the Municipal Secretary of Culture of Rio de Janeiro, the NGOs managers of cultural equipments in the city and ESPM-Rio in proposing tasks and activities for students for the Professional Master’s Program in Creative Economy Management. The central argument points out that the interaction between the public administration, the market and the university favors the exchange of knowledge and creates practical learning situations for students.
Epidemics to eradication: the modern history of poliomyelitis

Virology Journal , 2007, DOI: 10.1186/1743-422x-4-70
Abstract: The word poliomyelitis, the medical term used to describe the effect of poliovirus (PV) on the spinal cord, is derived from the Greek words for gray (polio) and marrow (myelon). The first known clinical description of poliomyelitis is attributed to Michael Underwood, a British physician, who in 1789 reported observing an illness which appeared to target primarily children and left those afflicted with residual debility of the lower extremities. In subsequent years, additional cases of poliomyelitis would be reported. Initial outbreaks in Europe were documented in the early 19th century and outbreaks in the United States were first reported in 1843. However, it was not until the early 20th century that the number of paralytic poliomyelitis cases reached epidemic proportions.In 1938, in efforts to support care for patients with poliomyelitis as well as fund research to combat the illness, the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis (now the March of Dimes) was established. The number of paralytic cases in the United States, estimated to have been in excess of 21,000, peaked in 1952. Fortunately, on April 12, 1955, the March of Dimes declared that the Salk polio vaccine was both safe and effective. Then, in 1963, the development of a second vaccine, the Sabin polio vaccine, was announced. With the introduction of effective vaccines, the incidence of poliomyelitis rapidly declined. Indeed, in the United States, the last case of poliomyelitis due to infection with wild type (wt) virus was reported in 1979. Less than a decade later, in 1988, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched a global campaign to eradicate PV.Since initial descriptions of poliomyelitis were first documented to the present time, innumerable milestones have been reached in understanding the molecular biology of PV and the pathogenesis of poliomyelitis. Such advances have certainly led to the more effective management of poliomyelitis. Nonetheless, many questions remain unanswered. One such que
