Filipe Monteiro
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2016.64037
Abstract: In medical practice, the treatment and prognosis in the end of life has associated to ethical dilemmas, which are established in conformity with individual or collective beliefs and values. Dysthanasia from Greek, means to make death difficult, and it is currently an ethical problem with significant consequences. Considering that death itself has two moments, the process of death and the moment of death, dysthanasia is the undue prolongation of the process of death with the help of technological devices that allows the life sustaining procedures. Although it is through the technological advances that the moment of death can be delayed, it is the beliefs and values that are deep rooted in the sub conscience of the physicians that are responsible for the demeanor of end of life ethical dilemmas. Beliefs and values when encompassed in areas like phenomenology of knowledge, dialectic of technology, conflict of values and existentialism and metaphysics, can somehow explain this issue that is current, emerging and compelling.

Delving into the Boardroom “Black Box”: A Research Model of “Board Learning Capability” (BLC)  [PDF]
Filipe Morais, Nada K. Kakabadse
Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2013.13010
Abstract: This paper aims to shed light into boardroom processes by bringing together the literature on organization behaviour and that of boardroom process in order to form a model of boardroom learning capability. Board process is viewed as primarily a learning process whereby individual members with their knowledge, skills and external networks engage in a collective learning process that culminates in a “shared understanding” about the problems and respective solutions and increased “board social capital”. It can be argued that boards that do better at this “collective learning process” will display greater effectiveness and ultimately better firm performance. In learning organisation’s terms, one can speak of “board learning capability” (BLC). The chairman of the board has a pivotal role in facilitating and mastering the collective learning process in the boardroom. Central to our model are the interplay between the “chairman role and skill set” and the “board learning challenges”. Building on research literature that focuses on learning organisations and on boardroom processes, we propose a model of “board learning capability” (BLC), which could shed additional light on the boardroom process dynamics. In the future, an organisation could develop a “board’s learning capability” measure to complement “good governance” indices which rely heavily on structure and composition proxies, despite limited empirical evidence. Empirical testing of the model can be of value for boardroom development and for risk and reputational concern minimization by uncovering differences in “boardroom learning capability” in different governance domains.

Abstract: we present a case of a 15 month old female in whom a voiding cystourethrography (vcu) was performed following a febrile urinary tract infection. the exam showed a duplex left kidney with vesicouretral reflux (vur) to the lower moiety. vcu is the most common method for initial diagnosis of vur and reflux to the lower moiety of a duplex kidney has a typi-cal configuration.

Abstract: we present a case of a 17-?year-?old adolescent with a painless hard palpable mass in the left supraclavicular fossa. thoracic x-?ray revealed a left cervical rib. a normal variant of the ribs must be considered in the differential diagnosis of a supraclavicular mass. in most cases x-?ray is sufficient for the diagnosis.

Elei??es de segunda ordem em Portugal: o caso das europeias de 2004
Nunes,Filipe;
Análise Social , 2005,
Abstract: this article looks at the european elections of 2004 in the light of second-tier election theory. according to this model, higher abstention rates and better electoral performances from small and medium-sized parties are to be expected in this type of election. it is true that turnout in these elections continues to be low, but the performance of small parties in them does seem to be affected by the increasing trend towards two-party dominance in other elections. we have also confirmed that european elections operate as a sort of referendum on the government. halfway through a parliamentary term, at a time when the economy was not doing well, parties which supported the government were clearly made to suffer. moreover, the most significant factors affecting the 2004 european election results, apart from ideological positioning, were voters? assessment of the government?s performance and the economic situation. traditional social divisions are of little help in understanding the meaning of votes cast in european elections: turnout bears a strong relationship to age and to how interested the voter is in politics. the article does not support any conclusion that abstention in european elections is linked to negative attitudes vis-à-vis the european union or to the range of party platforms on offer.
