Abstract: A non-destructive investigation of inks and pigments usedin late antiquity and in medieval codices has been undertaken.By comparing the results obtained on inkpots fromPompeii and from codices of various age, the use of metalgall inks appears to have been restricted to the periodbetween the 1st and 4th centuries AD. A change in the useof pigments has been observed between the 9th and 12thcentury in the production of the Scriptorium of Nonantola(Italy). The increased wealth of the abbey could account forthe use of expensive materials in the illuminations of theparchments.
A Semantic Model for Socially Aware Objects  [PDF]
Giulia Biamino
Advances in Internet of Things (AIT) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ait.2012.23006
Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) assumes that things interact and exchange information thus defining the future of pervasive computing environments. The integration between people and interconnected objects realizes a new physical and social space and opens new frontiers in context awareness and objects adaptation. In this paper we investigate the possibility of creating socially aware objects able to interact not only among themselves but also with human beings sharing the same environment. The main contribution of this work is to provide a knowledge model for social context-awareness and reasoning using an ontology-based context modeling, a user model and exploiting of social networks. This model is part of a larger framework called So Smart that aims at empowering networks of interconnected objects with social context awareness in order to improve their social interaction with people.
Everolimus Associated with Activated Vitamin D for Post-Transplant Increase Epstein-Barr-Virus Load Treatment. Two Case Reports  [PDF]
Luciano Moscarelli, Giulia Antognoli
International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2012.37119

Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) is an uncommon but life-threatening complication of solid-organ and blood stem-cell transplants. It is caused by an uncontrolled expansion of B lymphocytes infected with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). It responds poorly to therapy, including reduction of immunosuppression, interferon, antivirals or chemotherapy. Therefore the optimal strategy for management is currently focused on prevention. Some centers have already introduced chemoprophylaxis and/or preemptive strategies using EBV viral load as a surveillance. Some experimental studies suggest that mTOR inhibitors inhibits growth of human EBV-transformed B lymphocytes and vitamin D had an immune response to EBV. We report two cases of an increased of blood BKV viral load after renal transplantation that were successfully treated with everolimus in association with calcitriol. This report suggests that everolimus associated with calcitriol could be an effective and safe treatment for the prevention of PTLD in transplant recipients.

Field efficacy of the nucleopolyhedrovirus of Anticarsia gemmatalis Hübner (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae): effect of formulations, water pH, volume and time of application, and type of spray nozzle
Neotropical Entomology , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S1519-566X2002000100011
Abstract: the efficacy of the nucleopolyhedrovirus of anticarsia gemmatalis hübner (agmnpv) was evaluated in relation to different application parameters of this biological insecticide, to elucidate some problems of its low efficacy in certain regions in brazil, mainly in the state of rio grande do sul (rs). each experiment was conducted during four consecutive soybean seasons (1994/95 to 97/98), in cruz alta ? rs, to evaluate the following parameters on agmnpv field efficacy: available commercial formulations of the virus; ph of the viral aqueous suspension; spray volume; application time; spray nozzle type; and the mixture of the virus with mineral oil. each plot consisted of 28 soybean rows of 10 m in length, spaced of 40 cm. the statistical design was the completely randomized block design, with four replicates. samplings of agmnpv infected or dead larvae (il) were periodically made by the shake cloth method. the agmnpv formulations produced by nitral, nova era, coodetec and embrapa were efficient in controlling larval populations of a. gemmatalis when compared to the control. however, these formulations were significantly inferior to the crude extract of agmnpv (maceration and filtration of dead larvae), indicating that current commercial formulations of this virus need to be improved. the agmnpv was significantly affected by the water ph in the spray tank, as plots treated with a viral suspension at ph 6 resulted in a significantly higher number of il than plots treated with suspensions at ph 2 and 10. the spray volume also influenced the control of a. gemmatalis larval populations by the agmnpv. volumes of 300, 200 e 100 l/ha were equally efficient in controling the insect. however, at 50 l/ha, the virus efficacy was significantly lower than that provided by the other spray volumes, apparently due to nozzle clogging at the lower application volume. the agmnpv performance to control the insect was also significantly affected by the time of application, with higher effic
Mindfulness for Disabled University Students—A Sporting-Motor Activity and Meditative Workshop Aimed at Reducing Stress and Increasing Coping Resources  [PDF]
Giulia Savarese, Maria Teresa Ingino
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2018.914164
Abstract: The data collected from disabled university students who participated in a mindfulness workshop in Italy are presented. The workshop activities are also described. These were aimed at reducing stress and improving coping skills, the sense of self and social relationships. This is the first experience of a mindfulness course with university students with varying types of disability. The initial results were positive in creating the following within the participants: a less emotional interpretation of the world; a greater acceptance of their own difficulties; reduced stress; and, at the same time, implementation of various coping methods and improved self-esteem and social interaction.
O grotesco como estratégia de afirma??o da produ??o pictórica feminina
Crippa, Giulia;
Revista Estudos Feministas , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-026X2003000100007
Abstract: a proposal of gender interpretation of female artistic production during the so called modernism, based on common elements in tarsila do amaral's, frida kalho's, tamara de lempicka's and georgia o'keeffe's art works, without denying their individual dimension, built upon the esthetic definition of grotesque. grotesque, in its gender and historical expression, seems to represent a face of the common language used by women, trying to meet a strategy in order to be recognized by critics and markets. though, at one side, visual and decorative tradition set the "idealized feminine", on the other side grotesque, as a way of breaking reality as rational and coherent, historically related to anti-classic movement, offers an opening to a sexuated and non-conformist expression to female artists.
Representa??es iconográficas e literárias da produ??o de alimentos: espa?os, atores e ideologias entre Antiguidade e Idade Média
Crippa, Giulia;
Revista de Nutri??o , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-52732010000100016
Abstract: an iconographic and literary study on seasonal work as productive cycle between antiquity and the late middle ages is proposed, looking for boundaries between the iconographies and economy and society that produced them. the auspicious representation prevails in the historical view of iconographies associated with the prediction and hope of abundance. within the medieval society they are deeply bounded to main themes such as season changes, cyclic passage of time, journey through birth, death and resurrection. the representations of monthly work and activities change, and this change is much more than a mirror reflection, a reflection of society on the space and actors of the food production cycle. the legacy of antiquity to the middle ages is a great amount of images based on notions of personification as well of reference for the activities associated with the seasonal changes, a legacy that will be assessed and changed based on the new social and religious experience. these permeate the century during which most of the month cycles illustrated by productive works in the field are produced.

Accurate predictions for heavy quark jets
Zanderighi, Giulia
High Energy Physics - Phenomenology , 2007,
Abstract: Heavy-flavour jets enter many of today's collider studies, yet NLO predictions for these quantities are subject to large uncertainties, larger than the corresponding experimental errors. We propose a new, infrared safe definition of heavy-quark jets which allows one to reduce theoretical uncertainties by a factor of three.
