Abstract: http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/1984-9222.2009v1n1p155 As a es trabalhistas movimentadas nas Comarcas do Interior representam uma importante janela de acesso às experiências de algumas categorias de trabalhadores que raramente figuram nos estudos que se dedicam às grandes unidades de produ o e às formas convencionais de organiza o e mobiliza o classistas (sindicatos, partidos, greves). Este texto discute as formas como os trabalhadores do Rec ncavo Sul da Bahia acessaram informa es e se relacionaram com as idéias e realiza es do projeto trabalhista; notadamente com a legisla o, a justi a e o mito do “pai dos pobres”. Avalia os significados que lhes atribuíram e as condi es em que acionaram. Sustenta a tese de que trabalhadores e Estado foram protagonistas de tal rela o.
Tremor ortostático
Souza, Ricardo de Oliveira;Ribeiro, Sergio Antonio;
Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria , 1987, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-282X1987000300013
Abstract: orthostatic tremor (to) is a recently described new type of a high frequency irregular tremor which affects antagonistic sets of muscles in the lower limbs only since the erect posture is maintained. we describe two other cases of this peculiar kind of tremor which may be not so uncommon as up to now realized and emphathize its main diagnostic and semeiological characteristics. to may share some basic pathophysiological mechanism with tremors of the classical heredofamilial essential variety.

Abstract: Objective: To analyze the Patient Functionality Questionnaire (PFQ) scores of the patients treated with either Diclofenac + B vitamins (Group DB) or Diclofenac monotherapy (Group D) in order to better understand the impact of the combination of diclofenac with vitamins B1, B6, and B12 on quality of life. Research Design/Methods: We performed a post-hoc analysis of tabulated data generated during the DOLOR study (Diclofenac plus B vitamins versus diclofenac monotherapy in lumbago: the DOLOR study), using the software GraphPad Prism 5 for Windows, v5.04. The absolute number or percentage of “True”/“False” respondents for each questionnaire item at each study visit, together with the absolute number and percentage of subjects with no change, improvement, or worsening of each PFQ item at each study visit, within and between treatment groups were arranged on contingency tables and analyzed with the Chi-squared or Fisher’s Exact test. Results: At pretreatment there were no statistically significant differences between treatment groups (p > 0.05 for all items). At Visit 2 in both treatment groups, there were statistically significant improvements in individual question responses in each of the 12 items of the questionnaire (p < 0.05 for all items). At Visit 2, comparing the distribution of patients in each treatment group with “improvement”, “no change”, or “worsening”, there was a statistically significant superiority among subjects of group DB in response to items 1, 6, 8, and 10. At Visit 3, both groups had statistically significant (p < 0.001) improvements in each individual item of the PFQ in relation to pretreatment values. The distribution of subjects in each treatment group presenting with “improvement”, “no change”, or “worsening” at Visit 3 varied significantly in favor of group DB in the responses to item 4. At Visit 4, the subjects remaining in treatment in both groups showed statistically significant improvement in PFQ responses in relation to pretreatment values (p < 0.05). The distribution of subjects in each treatment group presenting with “improvement” or “no change” at Visit 4 varied significantly in favor of group D in the responses to items 5, 8, and 12. Conclusion: Improvement in overall PFQ scores was observed in both treatment groups, though the specific items of the questionnaire of the subjects in group DB at Visit 2 showed greater improvement in areas related to sleep quality, mobility, ability to wash and dry, ability to walk distances, and posture comfort. These results serve to corroborate the

Souza, Franciane Colares;Ferraz, Antonio Carlos de Oliveira;
Revista Brasileira de Fruticultura , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-29452009000100036
Abstract: 'roxo de valinhos' fig is a perishable handling sensitive product. the low mechanical resistance of the mature fig fruit demands special care during harvesting, packing, transportation and commercialization. firmness is an important textural attribute for vegetables, expressing the tension-strain measure useful to evaluating harvesting point and temporal quality. however, the non existence of a standard for measuring firmness may lead to inadequate decisions in choosing the proper index. in this work, four firmness indexes extracted from force-deformation curves as result of mechanical penetration tests with cylindrical probe and compression tests between flat and parallel plates were compared aiming to identify the index with least variability to be used in figs. results indicated that previous force-deformation curves inspection is important to establishing firmness evaluation intervals. among the considered firmness indexes, the deformation energy up to 10% deformation, using flat plate compression is the best index to evaluate fig firmness since it showed the lowest coefficient of variation.

Abstract: The goal of the present work was to evaluate the differential growth of carcass cuts (shoulder, leg, rack, rib/flanks and loin) of F1 Dorper x Rabo Largo and Dorper x Santa Inês lambs in relation to cooled carcass weight and empty body weight. Twenty lambs (10 males and 10 females) from each genetic group, raised at Esta o Experimental de Jaguaquara, belonging to the Empresa Baiana de Desenvolvimento Agrícola S.A. – EBDA, at five slaughter periods, were used: 84 (weaning), 126, 168, 220 and 272 days old. Statistical analyses to obtain the allometric coefficients were performed via regression analysis. The growths of neck, shoulder, leg, rack, rib/flanks, and loin in the DRL and DSI genetic groups were similar and, mostly, proportional to cooled carcass weight and empty body weight. The exceptions was the development of both shoulder and rib/flanks, since the former was precocious based on the cooled carcass weight within DRL and rib/flanks presented a late growth in relation to cooled carcass weight and empty body weight within DSI. This result suggests that either cooled carcass weight as empty body weight can be used to estimate the development of the major cuts in lambs from Dorper x Rabo Largo and Dorper x Santa Inês crosses. Objetivou-se com este trabalho avaliar o crescimento diferencial dos cortes da carca a (paleta, perna, costeleta, costela/fralda e lombo) de cordeiros F1 Dorper x Rabo Largo (DRL) e Dorper x Santa Inês (DSI), em fun o do peso da carca a fria e peso do corpo vazio. Foram utilizados 20 cordeiros (dez machos e dez fêmeas) de cada grupo genético, em cinco idades de abate: 84 (desmame), aos 126, 168, 220 e 272 dias de idade, criados na Esta o Experimental de Jaguaquara (BA), pertencente à Empresa Baiana de Desenvolvimento Agrícola S.A. – EBDA. As análises estatísticas para obten o dos coeficientes alométricos foram realizadas por meio de análises de regress o. O crescimento dos cortes: pesco o, paleta, perna, costeleta, costela/fralda e lombo, nos grupos genéticos DRL e DSI, se assemelham e s o na sua maioria proporcionais ao peso da carca a fria e peso do corpo vazio. A paleta e a costela/fralda foram as exce es, sendo a paleta precoce em rela o ao peso da carca a fria, no DRL e a costela/fralda tardia, em rela o ao peso da carca a fria e peso do corpo vazio no DSI. O peso da carca a fria e do corpo vazio pode ser utilizado para estimar o desenvolvimento dos principais cortes, em cordeiros cruzas Dorper x Rabo Largo e Dorper x Santa Inês.

Oliveira, Arlem Nascimento de;Oliveira, Luiz Antonio de;Andrade, Jerusa Souza;
Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-89132010000500024
Abstract: two rhizobia strains isolated from soils of the central amazonian floodplain produced appreciable quantities of crude alkaline protease extracts with inexpensive carbon and nitrogen sources. these protease crude extracts were optimally active at ph 9.0-11.0. the optimum temperatures were 35 oc for rhizobium sp. strain r-986 and 55 oc for bradyrhizobium sp. strain r-993. protease activities in the crude extracts were enhanced in the presence of 5 mm metal ions, such as na+, ca2+, mg2+ and mn2+. rhizobia proteases were strongly inhibited by pmsf, a serine-protease inhibitor. the enzymes were active in the presence of surfactants (sds and triton x-100) and stable in oxidizing (h2o2) and reducing agents (β-mercaptoethanol), and organic solvents (acetone, hexane, methanol, 1-propanol and toluene).

Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-89132010000100005
Abstract: amylase production and partial characterization of crude enzyme preparations from two rhizobia strains (r-926 and r-991) were evaluated. for both the strains, maximal amylase activities were achieved during the early-to-mid- exponential growth phase; both were active over a ph range from 4.5 to 8.5 and temperature from 30 to 50 oc. none of the ions studied (k+, na+, ca2+, hg2+, mg2+, mn2+, cu2+ and zn2+) was required for the catalytic activity of strain r-926; amylase activity of strain r-991 was stimulated in the presence of k+, hg2+ and zn2+. the surfactants sds, triton x-100 and tween-80 did not have a pronounced inhibitory effect on enzyme activities; sds and tween-80 caused the highest stimulatory effects. amylase activities from the rhizobia strains were reduced by up to 30% in the presence of edta; amylase activity of r-926 was also inhibited by hgcl2, suggesting that ca2+and cysteine residues could be important for activity of this strain.
