A Amaz?nia no imaginário norte-americano em tempo de guerra
Garfield, Seth;
Revista Brasileira de História , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-01882009000100002
Abstract: this essay traces the emergence of the amazon in the united states wartime imaginary. although the geopolitical importance of diversifying rubber markets and developing synthetics had been discussed in the united states before pearl harbor, the subsequent japanese interdiction of traditional southeast asian markets sent american government officials and scientists scurrying to find alternatives. as in other regions of latin america, wartime procurement policies in the amazon divided new deal progressives and fiscal conservatives, but these policies also shaped and were shaped by entrenched myths of tropical regions and populations. then, as now, the amazon was more than a place, but also a flashpoint for americans for deeper anxieties concerning questions of race, class, and nation.
As raízes de uma planta que hoje é o Brasil: os índios e o Estado-Na??o na era Vargas
Garfield, Seth;
Revista Brasileira de História , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-01882000000100002
Abstract: this article looks at the construction of the indian by government officials and intellectuals during the estado novo (1937-45), and the efforts of indigenous peoples to engage these images. state officials - concerned with national consolidation, territorial defense, and racial pedigree - upheld the indian as na icon who had made invaluable contributions to brazilian historical and cultural formation. the proto-patriot, however, could only be fully redeemed through government tutelage. confronted by na ambiguos state project, indigenous groups demonstrated varied responses.

Revista Brasileira de História , 2000,
Abstract: Este artigo examina a constru o do índio por funcionários e intelectuais durante o Estado Novo (1937-1945) e os esfor os de povos indígenas para empregar essas imagens. Funcionários do Estado - preocupados com unifica o nacional, defesa territorial e configura o racial - sustentaram o índio como um ícone que trouxe contribui es inestimáveis à forma o histórica e cultural brasileira. O proto-patriota, entretanto, só p de ser completamente redimido pela tutela governamental. Confrontados com um projeto estatal ambigüo, grupos indígenas deram várias respostas.
The meaning of the Impact Factor
Eugene Garfield
International Journal of Clinical and Health Psychology , 2003,
Abstract: El factor de impacto y otros índices bibliométricos son utilizados en la actualidad, en la mayoría de los países, para evaluar la investigación científica: proyectos de investigación, revistas, artículos, investigadores e instituciones. En el presente artículo se responden a las preguntas mas frecuentes sobre qué es el factor de impacto y cómo debe ser utilizado. En concreto, se habla de su origen, de los criterios que debe cumplir una revista, del factor de impacto como criterio de evaluación, de la relación entre la calidad de las revistas y el factor de impacto, de la evaluación de la calidad de las publicaciones, del período de evaluación para el cálculo del índice de impacto, del calculo del índice de impacto, de la comparación entre revistas de diferentes campos científicos, de la generalización del factor de impacto de una revista a cada uno de los artículos publicados en ella, de la relación entre el factor de impacto y la dificultad de publicar, del idioma en que publican las revistas y de cómo mejorar el factor de impacto de una revista.

Tracing scientific influence
Andrea Scharnhorst,Eugene Garfield
Computer Science , 2010,
Abstract: Scientometrics is the field of quantitative studies of scholarly activity. It has been used for systematic studies of the fundamentals of scholarly practice as well as for evaluation purposes. Although advocated from the very beginning the use of scientometrics as an additional method for science history is still under explored. In this paper we show how a scientometric analysis can be used to shed light on the reception history of certain outstanding scholars. As a case, we look into citation patterns of a specific paper by the American sociologist Robert K. Merton.
Bayesian Analysis of Loss Ratios Using the Reversible Jump Algorithm
Garfield Brown,Steve Brooks
Statistics , 2011,
Abstract: In this paper we consider the problem of model choice for a set of insurance loss ratios. We use a reversible jump algorithm for our model discrimination and show how the vanilla reversible jump algorithm can be improved on using recent methodological advances in reversible jump computation.
Discrimination for Two Way Models with Insurance Application
Garfield Brown,Winston Buckley
Statistics , 2010,
Abstract: In this paper, we review and apply several approaches to model selection for analysis of variance models which are used in a credibility and insurance context. The reversible jump algorithm is employed for model selection, where posterior model probabilities are computed. We then apply this method to insurance data from workers' compensation insurance schemes. The reversible jump results are compared with the Deviance Information Criterion, and are shown to be consistent.
A Quantitative Assessment of the Morphology of the Piriform Aperture as an Indicator of Race  [PDF]
Seth Gardner
Forensic Medicine and Anatomy Research (FMAR) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/fmar.2015.31002
Abstract: Piriform apertures from skulls in the Bass Collection at the University of Tennessee were examined. The morphology of the perform aperture from digital images was captured using Adobe Measuring Tool 9.0 and data analyzed with SPSS 17.0. Twenty-four linear measurements from a central point of the aperture as well as the perimeter were evaluated to quantify a difference between Black and White populations. The statistical analyses employed Discriminate Functional Analysis followed by Stepwise analysis. Discriminate functions were generated to predict to which group a skull belonged. A discriminate function produced an accuracy of 77.4%. Step-wise discriminate function analysis, using only three variables, produced an accuracy of 79.0%.
Unusual Drainage of the Right Testicular Vein: A Case Report  [PDF]
Seth Gardner
Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2015.46046
Routine dissection was carried out on a 75-year-old male cadaver and the drainage pattern of the testicular veins was identified and photographed. Dissection showed that the right testicular vein demonstrated an abnormal drainage pattern by terminating into the right renal vein. The left testicular vein demonstrated a normal drainage pattern by terminating into the left renal vein. The unusual drainage of the right testicular vein into the right renal vein may complicate hemodynamics thus causing a varicocele. Complications of a varicocele could lead to testis atrophy and/or infertility. Knowing the anatomical variants of the testicular veins drainage pattern may help the surgeon avoid potential complications during routine laparoscopic procedures and may also uncover a reason for male infertility.
