Compulsory School Is Over and Now? Vocational Experiences of Women with Intellectual Disability  [PDF]
Helga Fasching
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.510087
Abstract: This contribution explores the question of the vocational experiences which women with intellectual disabilities have after leaving school. The main part of the contribution contains an analysis of three interviews with women with intellectual disabilities about their post-school vocational orientation. The research method applied for the analysis was grounded theory. The results show that the three women changed from school directly to a sheltered workshop/occupational therapy or to external vocational preparation measures. They were only able to gain work experience on the regular labour market in the framework of work placement, which led them to express their wish to find employment on the regular labour market. They were successful in their pursuit of vocational participation on the regular labour market. However, they perceive the transition from school to the regular labour market as a cumbersome vocational orientation process.

Different Prevalence of Chronic-Non-Infectious Diseases
AM El-Tawil
Iranian Journal of Public Health , 2010,
Abstract: "nInflammatory bowel disease, coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, tumours, are exam-ples of chronic degenerative diseases that have a high prevalence in developed nations. These chronic-non-communicable dis-eases have multifactorial aetiologies that considered to be caused by the interaction of environmental risk factors with multi-ple predisposing genes. Genetic researches on these diseases have traditionally focused on investigation aimed at identify-ing disease-susceptibility genes. Recent evidence suggests that somatically acquired DNA mutations may also contrib-ute significantly to the pathogenesis of these disease states such as coronary artery disease indicating a similarity be-tween the atherosclerotic and carcinogenic processes. The high incidences and prevalence of these chronic diseases in the West-ern World in comparison with the East and changing trends in disease incidence (seen in many countries) provide strong evidence that those environmental factors as playing a major influence in disease- expression. There is an ample reason to be-lieve that environmental factors have contributed to inducing alterations in genetic code in precedent generations, which were subsequently inherited and further modified by modern life style activities. Consequently, we now see the appearance of chronic degenerative diseases and their higher incidences in the Western nations as compared with the Eastern ones.
Is the DHEAS/cortisol ratio a potential filter for non-operable constipated cases?
AM El-Tawil
World Journal of Gastroenterology , 2010,
Abstract: Constipation is a significant manifestation of a number of psychological disorders. Published papers recommend using self-assessment questionnaires for discriminating psychological from non-psychological constipated patients before operating on them but reports from major surveys revealed that general practitioners failed to diagnose 70% of depressed patients using self-assessment questionnaires. Lower circulating concentrations of progesterone, 17-hydroxyprogesterone, cortisol, testosterone, androstenedione, and dehydroepiandrostenedione sulfate (DHEAS) during the follicular phase in constipated young women compared with respective controls were found during the follicular phase of the menstrual cycles. During the luteal phase of the cycle, reductions were identified in estriol, cortisol and testosterone in the constipated group. Likewise, circulating concentrations of DHEAS were found to be lower in depressed patients than comparable healthy controls. DHEAS/cortisol ratios in morning serum and salivary samples were lower than those retrieved during other times of the day in depressed patients. The idea of recognizing major depression in constipated patients by measuring DHEAS/cortisol ratios in saliva and serum may be plausible but this possibility needs to be confirmed in well-designed studies.
Management of fistula-in-ano: An introduction
AM El-Tawil
World Journal of Gastroenterology , 2011, DOI: 10.3748/wjg.v17.i28.3271
Abstract: Peri-anal fistulae are a worldwide health problem that can affect any person anywhere. Surgical management of these fistulae is not free from risks. Recurrence and fecal incontinence are the most common complications after surgery. The cumulative personal surgical experience in managing cases with anal fistulae is significantly considered as necessary for obtaining better results with minimal adverse effects after surgery. The purpose for conducting this survey is to facilitate better outcome after surgical interventions in idiopathic anal fistulae’ cases.
Colorectal cancer and pollution
AM El-Tawil
World Journal of Gastroenterology , 2010,
Abstract: The incidence of colorectal carcinoma is increasing in young patients, in contrast to the well established wisdom that it is exclusively diagnosed in patients older than 40 years. In this survey, we examined all possible risk factors, and we recommend a number of measures for early detection in young patients who are at risk of developing this malignant tumor.
Un botánico Francés en la Venezuela del siglo
Acta Botánica Venezuelica , 2001,
Abstract: this paper deals with a document from the eighteenth century stored in the national archives, caracas,venezuela, which refers to a french botanist and plant collector. the revision of these old papers and its comparison with ancient chronicles as well as with recent literature, allowed inferences about phytotherapy in the eighteenth century and about some singularities of the plants used. an interesting historical aspect was to attest that some of the naturalists who visited venezuelan territory during the eighteenth century were immersed in embarrasing situations derived from the conflicts among the colonial powers.
La nuez moscada y la canela en America
Acta Botánica Venezuelica , 2002,
Abstract: in an old document from the eighteenth century stored in the national archives (caracas, venezuela) appear nutmeg and cinnammon in a list of medicinal plants collected in 1767 in venezuela or the caribbean region by the french botanist and surgeon jean baptiste d?arnault (lindorf 2002). there is no agreement about the time when these species were introduced in the new world, therefore, the discovery-among those ancient papers - of a reference about an early collection in america may contribute to date more accurately their entrance in our continent.
Notices on the austrian expedition in a Venezuelan document dated 1787 and comments on Botanical names Linked to the collectors
Acta Botánica Venezuelica , 2004,
Abstract: in april 1783 an expedition led by the austrian botanist and professor of natural history, franz joseph m?rter, was sent to america by emperor joseph ii of austria. the purpose of this trip was to enlarge the collections of the museums, zoos and botanical gardens of the imperial court. besides the leader, the expedition also counted with the presence of a doctor, a painter and the imperial gardeners, franz bredemeyer and franz boos. at later stages of the journey, specifically during the stays in haiti and venezuela, there appeared another gardener, called josef schücht, who apparently formed no part of the original list of expedition members. papers dealing with botanical collectors make reference to the presence of bredemeyer and schücht in venezuela. however, boos is not mentioned in regard with this country, even though there are reports of samples collected by him in this land. the existence of a document, dated 1787, held in the "archivo general de la nación" (the national archives), caracas, venezuela, in which both boos and schücht are mentioned, could signify proof of their presence in venezuelan territory. in this present work a partial transcription of the above mentioned document is included. besides this, pertinent historical observations are made about the collecting endeavors of the austrian naturalists, as well as regarding the botanical names linked to their surnames.
Ansiedade e aprendizagem: um estudo com díades resolvendo problemas algébricos
Loos, Helga;
Estudos de Psicologia (Natal) , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-294X2004000300019
Abstract: from a constructionist and interactionist perspective, researchers have shown that the socio-cognitive conflict leads to a cognitive development by students in solving-problem tasks in small groups. based on the paradigm that affective factors are interconnected to the social and cognitive ones, this study aimed to observe sixteen 6th and 7th grade students in working in pairs, how they manage simultaneously: the solution search to four given algebraic problems, the interpersonal relationship and the anxiety generated by the difficulties eventually found. the sessions were recorded in video and qualitatively analyzed. it was observed that: (1) all groups manifested anxiety related to the difficulties of the task; (2) good interactions facilitated anxiety management; (3) bad interactions worsened performance, were additional source of anxiety and inhibited the emergence of socio-cognitive conflicts; (4) good interactions and appropriate management of anxiety benefited a good performance on the task, but could not assure a good performance when at least one participant did not have the minimum cognitive prerequisites to accomplish it.
