Abstract: objective. to assess the validity of recommendations for use of the 85th and 95th percentiles of body mass index (bmi) of the population in the united states of america as a screening tool to assess overweight/obesity in adolescents. methods. we investigated the relation between bmi and percent body fat in 1 540 adolescents (717 males and 823 females) aged 10 to 17.9 years old from a private high school in niterói, a city in the state of rio de janeiro, brazil. we used bioelectric impedance, with the appropriate equations for adolescents, to estimate percent body fat, which served as the gold standard (30% for girls and 25% for boys) to calculate the sensitivity and specificity of the 85th and 95th percentiles of the united states and brazilian distribution curves of bmi. results. sensitivity and specificity were high (above 80%) for the niterói boys, except for the 85th percentile of the brazilian curve (specificity = 61.8%) and for the 95th percentile of the united states curve (sensitivity = 55.4%). for the niterói girls, the 85th- and 95th-percentile bmi cutoff points, from both the united states and brazilian curves, showed low sensitivity, and that sensitivity decreased with age. specificity was high for the girls, and much higher than it was for the boys. conclusions. these data suggest that using bmi to screen for overweight/obesity in adolescents can generate a high percentage of false-positives for niterói boys and an even higher percentage of false-negatives for niterói girls. a more universal approach to using anthropometric measures to screen for overweight/obesity should be developed, preferably linked to stages of maturation.

Abstract: Objective. To assess the validity of recommendations for use of the 85th and 95th percentiles of body mass index (BMI) of the population in the United States of America as a screening tool to assess overweight/obesity in adolescents. Methods. We investigated the relation between BMI and percent body fat in 1 540 adolescents (717 males and 823 females) aged 10 to 17.9 years old from a private high school in Niterói, a city in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We used bioelectric impedance, with the appropriate equations for adolescents, to estimate percent body fat, which served as the gold standard (30% for girls and 25% for boys) to calculate the sensitivity and specificity of the 85th and 95th percentiles of the United States and Brazilian distribution curves of BMI. Results. Sensitivity and specificity were high (above 80%) for the Niterói boys, except for the 85th percentile of the Brazilian curve (specificity = 61.8%) and for the 95th percentile of the United States curve (sensitivity = 55.4%). For the Niterói girls, the 85th- and 95th-percentile BMI cutoff points, from both the United States and Brazilian curves, showed low sensitivity, and that sensitivity decreased with age. Specificity was high for the girls, and much higher than it was for the boys. Conclusions. These data suggest that using BMI to screen for overweight/obesity in adolescents can generate a high percentage of false-positives for Niterói boys and an even higher percentage of false-negatives for Niterói girls. A more universal approach to using anthropometric measures to screen for overweight/obesity should be developed, preferably linked to stages of maturation.

Oliveira, Celina Szuchmacher;Veiga, Glória Valéria da;
Revista de Nutri??o , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-52732005000200002
Abstract: objetive: to compare the nutritional status and sexual maturation of adolescents 11 to 15.9 years old, from different socioeconomic levels. methods: three hundred and three adolescents from one public school were evaluated, and 199 from one private school, both in the municipality of rio de janeiro. the nutritional status was assessed by body mass index and triciptal and subscapular skinfold thickness measurements. the sexual maturation was assessed through self-examination, identifying stages of genitals and breasts' development. results: in the public school, 2.0% of the adolescents were classified as underweight, 6.6% as overweight, and 9.2% as obese, whereas in the private school, such occurrences were 3.0%, 9.0%, and 18.1%, respectively. regarding these occurrences, there were no differences between sexes. on the othser hand, at the private school, greater proportion of girls presented overweight/obesity (27.1% vs 14.2%; c 2=8.08, p=0.004), and girls and boys were more advanced in sexual maturation than their public school counterparts. only in adolescents from public school overweight/obesity were associated with advanced sexual maturation (odds ratio=3.52 ic 95.0% 1.76-7.07). therefore, the total risk of overweight/obesity was higher among adolescents with advanced sexual maturation (odds ratio=3.16, ci 95.0%=1.71-5.87). conclusion: obesity was the main nutritional problem in adolescents. the public school students presented sexual maturation, later than the private school ones.

Abstract: Este artigo analisa algumas das coloca es de Erving Goffman, em seu livro A representa o do eu na vida cotidiana, cujo projeto é captar e explicar as estratégias que as pessoas usam a fim de passar delas próprias uma autoimagem positiva, mediante recursos verbais e principalmente n o-verbais. Goffman afirma que grande parte do comportamento cotidiano é semelhante ao de atores no palco, sendo que os indivíduos e os grupos est o constantemente representando uns para os outros. Com base em duas das cartas que comp em o romance epistolar As rela es perigosas, de Charderlos de Laclos, estudamse as representa es completamente falsas para aprender alguma coisa a respeito daquelas que s o inteiramente honestas. This article analyzes some of Erving Goffman’s statements in his book The presentation of Self in everyday life, whose project is to capture and to explain the strategies that people use in order to pass of them a positive self-image, by verbal and mainly non-verbal resources. Goffman affirms that great part of the daily behavior is similar to the actors in the stage, and the individuals and the groups are constantly representing one another. Basing on two of the letters that compose the romance Les liaisons dangereuses, by Charderlos de Laclos, we will be trying to study the representations completely false to learn something regarding the ones who are entirely honest.

Abstract: introduction: obesity during adolescence is considered a strong predictor of adult obesity. the present study assessed the overweight/obesity prevalence and associated factors in middle class adolescents of a school in the city of niteroi, rio de janeiro, brazil, and evaluated the correlation between body mass index with anthropometric measures of fatness. method: the analysis covered 391 students aged from 15 to 17 years. adolescents had their weight, height, skinfold thickness and upper arm circumference measured at school. a food frequency questionnaire (list of 79 items) and a questionnaire including food habits, parents anthropometric characteristics, physical activity and other factors associated with obesity were filled out by the adolescents at school. results: the proportion of overweight individuals among boys (body mass index (bmi) greater than the 90th percentile of the brazilian population) was 23.9%, whereas the prevalence among girls was 7.2%. the fact of being on a slimming diet was a relevant factor for the prediction of bmi and was 7 times more frequent among girls than among boys. among boys, being on a diet, absence of breakfast, and family body appearance were positively associated with bmi. among girls these variables were also significantly associated, whereas age at menarche was negatively associated with bmi. hours of watching tv/video/ video-game was associated with bmi only among boys. the correlation coefficient between bmi and measures of fatness varied from 0.7 to 0.9 for boys, and from 0.8 to 0.90 for girls. conclusions: bmi appears to be a good indicator of obesity among adolescents and showed that girls demonstrated an exaggerated preoccupation with body image and stereotyped slim body patterns.

InternexT : Revista Eletr?nica de Negócios Internacionais da ESPM , 2013,
Abstract: Considerando o cenário de transforma es que permeia e existência das organiza es nota-se um crescimento no sentido da ado o de uma postura mais sensível aos problemas da comunidade ou mesmo a aceita o da responsabilidade sobre os impactos causados por seus processos produtivos. A partir desta idéia este estudo pretende descrever “De que forma uma empresa química com atua o internacional orienta sua gest o para práticas sustentável considerando sua proposta estratégica?” Para atingir estes objetivos a pesquisa descritiva com característica qualitativa foi escolhida. A investiga o considerou também a proposta de um construto de sustentabilidade baseada no Tripé da Sustentabilidade e Indicadores IBASE e o grau de internacionaliza o da organiza o estudada para inferir as análises. Observou-se que a gest o sustentável ainda está muito ligada a ferramentas de apoio e n o como parte da constru o da estratégia da empresa apesar de ser possível perceber que a mesma busca um envolvimento maior neste sentido quando passam a rever suas estratégias. No entanto, a inser o de práticas responsáveis ou sustentável se mostrou como fonte de oportunidade para negócios no exterior para a empresa estudada, já que a prepara o para atua o sob a legisla o ambiental, exigências globais, matérias-primas e processos ecologicamente corretos preparou a organiza o para comercializar em esfera global. No Brasil nota-se que atuar de forma sustentável ainda apresenta um retorno lento e de pouca visibilidade. Indica-se que esta é a dire o da gest o futura, portanto, as organiza es que puderem inserir nesse modelo consciente e fomentar as mudan as em termos culturais em geral, podem gerar novas oportunidades
