Gender mainstreaming in Spain: ¨The case of “Lidera Project” in Madrid Autonomous Community¨
José Ramón Pin,Esperanza Suarez,Lourdes Susaeta
Journal of Arts and Humanities , 2013,
Abstract: Women continue to be under-represented in senior positions. In this paper we present a ¨best practice′ in the role of the public agents as gender mainstream key actors. Gender mainstreaming as a strategy is meant to actively counteract this gender bias, and to use the normal mandate of policy makers to promote more equitable relations between women and men. The rationale for pursuing gender mainstreaming via the Structural Funds is as much about promoting economic efficiency as it is about promoting equity. In this paper we analize an specific case launched by the Government of the Region of Madrid, three years ago, the “Lidera project”. To assess the overall effectiveness of the gender mainstreaming effort through the Lidera project, we analyze the impact in the individual level trough five constructs. We can conclude at individual level that LIDERA EFFECT exists and it has a positive and differential impact.
Intelligent Agent for Damages Detection
Darian Onchis-Moaca,Gilbert-Rainer Gillich,Zeno-Iosif Praisach,Esperanza Maria Suarez-Sanchez
Analele Universit??ii Eftimie Murgu Re?i?a. Fascicula de Inginerie , 2010,
Abstract: We introduce in this paper an intelligent system that automatically detects the damage in cantilever beams called AgentMec. This agent is creating its knowledge using a database with the first ten natural frequencies of the beam damaged at predetermined points. Using the reinforced learning, it creates the patterns to describe the behavior of the damaged beam. Then with each new vibration measurement send as input, AgentMec is able to recognize the location of the damage.
Human Mammospheres Secrete Hormone-Regulated Active Extracellular Vesicles
Esperanza Gonzalez, Marco Piva, Eva Rodriguez-Suarez, David Gil, Felix Royo, Felix Elortza, Juan M. Falcon-Perez, Maria dM. Vivanco
PLOS ONE , 2014, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0083955
Abstract: Breast cancer is a leading cause of cancer-associated death worldwide. One of the most important prognostic factors for survival is the early detection of the disease. Recent studies indicate that extracellular vesicles may provide diagnostic information for cancer management. We demonstrate the secretion of extracellular vesicles by primary breast epithelial cells enriched for stem/progenitor cells cultured as mammospheres, in non-adherent conditions. Using a proteomic approach we identified proteins contained in these vesicles whose expression is affected by hormonal changes in the cellular environment. In addition, we showed that these vesicles are capable of promoting changes in expression levels of genes involved in epithelial-mesenchymal transition and stem cell markers. Our findings suggest that secreted extracellular vesicles could represent potential diagnostic and/or prognostic markers for breast cancer and support a role for extracellular vesicles in cancer progression.
Energy-States of Particles with Representational Spin  [PDF]
Ricardo Suarez, Gregory G. Wood
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/am.2016.77060
Abstract: In this paper, an algorithm to produce a transition matrix between all states in ideal anti-paramagetic system under the simulated annealing condition that only moves to lower energy states are accepted. The check the accuracy of the transition matrix is confirmed by computer simulation, showing close agreement between model and simulation results.
Nota sobre o conceito de Bildung (forma??o cultural)
Suarez, Rosana;
Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2005000200005
Abstract: the following research is about the german concept of bildung, based on the article "bildung et bildungsroman", by antoine berman. the concept is developed in five stages: bildung in the sense of work, of travel, of translation, of returning to the ancient history and in the sense of philological practice. this research can contribute for the interpretation of works of philosophy of the art and the culture, as, for example, the passages from hegel, from h?lderlin, from the romantic friedrich schlegel and from nietzsche.

Cuadernos del Centro de Estudios en Dise?±o y Comunicaci?3n. Ensayos , 2012,
Abstract: in the new horizon of work production, the figure of the author appears as an amalgam of images that have been deposited through a labyrinth of manifestos, policies and activities that become the history of art and design, mainly in the last 100 years. far from being clarified, the scenario of the last two decades has been blurred with the development of the new technological media. the author never has been an easy character to carry on; from his appearance in the dawn of modernity and within the geographic, cultural and philosophical european territory. in peripheral territories like ours, the problematic get rich with the polarization of the concepts of identity and strangeness.
Comparative Leaf Anatomy and Pressure-Volume Analysis in Plants of Ipomoea pes-caprae Experimenting Saline and/or Drought Stress
N. Suarez
International Journal of Botany , 2011,
Abstract: Ipomoea pes-caprae is a vine common in tropical and subtropical coasts. This species appears to be more susceptible to drought as compared with saline stress and when both stresses are combined, the water and carbon balance may be enhanced compared with the two stresses applied independently. In this study, leaf anatomy and parameters obtained by P-V analysis were measured in I. pes-caprae experimenting saline and/or water stress. NaCl and PEG were used to induce iso-osmotic pressures in the soil solution (Ψsol) to -5 and -10 bar and both osmotica were combined to apply simultaneous saline and water stress (S+W) for a total reduction in Ψsol of -5 bar. Saline and/or water stress increased the lamina thickness and cell size but the effect was higher under high saline stress. Osmotic potential at full (Ψπ100) and at zero (Ψπ0) turgor were significantly lower at high salinity and S+W stress, compared with the other treatments. Osmotic adjustment resulting from net solute accumulation explains 85-98% of the total change in Ψπ. The contribution of dehydration to changes in Ψπ was apparent only under high water stress. Single stress had no significant effect on the modulus of elasticity (ε) and apoplastic water fraction. However, plants growing under S+W showed the lowest values of ε. Changes in Ψπ and ε affected the relative ability of plants subjected to S+W treatment to maintain high turgor pressure at lower relative water content and confirm that the ability of I. pes-caprae to grow under lower Ψsol may be increased if experiments both stresses simultaneously.
Evaluating Qualitative Research Studies for Evidence Based Library and Information Practice
Doug Suarez
Evidence Based Library and Information Practice , 2010,
Abstract: Objective ‐ Research studies in the literature that may be useful for solving professional practice questions are frequently based on findings from studies that use qualitative methods. Criteria used to appraise qualitative research are still evolving and often lack the readily understood precision of the numerical criteria used for quantitative research. Qualitative research studies can often be more valuable than quantitative studies for a given situation. This article offers a template to assess qualitative methods used in practitioner‐led research for library and information science. Methods – This paper presents a narrative scenario of a library management problem. After conducting a literature search, the author identified an article with apparent relevance and potential to help resolve the problem. The author then evaluated the article using an assessment framework to illustrate how qualitative library research can be assessed. The paper examines the components of the framework, and explores the process. Results ‐ The appraisal of the selected article demonstrates that qualitative methods used in library research can be critically evaluated for evidence to assist librarians in addressing their professional practice questions. Conclusions ‐ Results obtained from qualitative research projects can be applied as evidence to support library practice. Qualitative methods are useful, and for many library practice issues, the assessment process illustrated here will help librarians evaluate the evidence and assess its appropriateness for practice.
Objetivos y características de la química computacional y su aplicación al estudio de los materiales de carbono
D. Suarez
Boletin del Grupo Espa?ol del Carbon , 2012,
Abstract: El objetivo principal de la Química Computacional(QC) es predecir todo tipo de propiedadesmoleculares de sistemas químicos. Adicionalmente,la QC ofrece información útil para racionalizar ointerpretar tendencias y enunciar relaciones deestructura-actividad. Para ello, la QC emplea unaamplia gama de técnicas teóricas en constantedesarrollo y mejora. La naturaleza del modelomolecular de interés y la del problema o propiedada estudiar condicionan la selección del método(s) autilizar. Muchas de las herramientas de la QC puedenser aplicadas por todo tipo de científicos, no sólopor especialistas. Es necesario un conocimientobásico de los fundamentos de los métodos teóricos,capacidad de análisis crítico de los resultados, ciertahabilidad en el manejo del software y acceso arecursos de hardware optimizados para cálculo dealtas prestaciones. La caracterización de los nuevosmateriales de carbono (nanotubos, grafenos, etc.)ha venido haciendo un uso intensivo de la QC. Perola aplicación de la QC es igualmente interesantepara comprender las bases moleculares delcomportamiento de todo tipo de materiales decarbono.
Quantum randomness can be controlled by free will -a consequence of the before-before experiment
Antoine Suarez
Physics , 2008,
Abstract: The before-before experiment demonstrates that quantum randomness can be controlled by influences from outside spacetime, and therefore by immaterial free will. Rather than looking at quantum physics as the model for explaining free will, one should look at free will as a primitive principle for explaining why the laws of Nature are quantum.
