Strategic Environmental Assessment to Improve Infrastructure Impact Assessments in Brazil  [PDF]
Isabel Silva Dutra de Oliveira, Marcelo Monta?o, Marcelo Pereira de Souza
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2013.410136

The wider consideration of environmental effects and alternatives in early stages of decision-making has been pointed as one of the major benefits of Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA). Adopted by virtually all of developed countries and sprawling around emergent and developing ones, it is recognized that SEA effectiveness is attached to its systematic application in development plans and programmes. Brazil and many developing countries have different experiences with this instrument and lacks of definition of a procedural framework to promote the use of SEA in strategic levels of decision. As a consequence development projects are frequently threatened” by impact assessment outcomes, especially when a mandatory project-EIA has to inform decisions. In order to contribute to the implementation of SEA in developing countries, the present paper discusses the potential benefits of using SEA in transport infrastructure plans and programmes, through a case study applied to transport plans in the state of Sao Paulo (south-eastern Brazil). The outcomes indicate that SEA could contribute to improve infrastructure impact assessments, minimizing social and environmental conflicts, augmenting the acceptability of projects and decisions, reinforcing the need for SEA to be systematically implemented in Brazil.

Engenharia Sanitaria e Ambiental , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-41522011000100006
Abstract: strategic environmental assessment (sea) has emerged as a tool that provides opportunities for making policies, plans and programs more sensitive to environmental issues. it can also assist integration and coordination between various institutional actors, and the increasing and strengthening of public participation. multilateral development agencies such as the interamerican development bank and the world bank have been encouraging the adoption of sea in developing countries as a recommendation or requirement for investments approval. this paper presents and discusses the role multilateral agencies are actually playing in sea application in brazil in order to identify possible best practices and constraints. it is argued that sea in brazil should be developed as an autonomous instrument, based on brazilian institutional context, specific characteristics and internal demands.
The Fukushima Nuclear Accident: Insights on the Safety Aspects  [PDF]
Zieli Dutra Thomé, Rogério dos Santos Gomes, Fernando Carvalho da Silva, Sergio de Oliveira Vellozo
World Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology (WJNST) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/wjnst.2015.53017
Abstract: The Fukushima nuclear accident has generated doubts and questions which need to be properly understood and addressed. This scientific attitude became necessary to allow the use of the nuclear technology for electricity generation around the world. The nuclear stakeholders are working to obtain these technical answers for the Fukushima questions. We believe that, such challenges will be, certainly, implemented in the next reactor generation, following the technological evolution. The purpose of this work is to perform a critical analysis of the Fukushima nuclear accident, focusing at the common cause failures produced by tsunami, as well as an analysis of the main redundant systems. This work also assesses the mitigative procedures and the subsequent consequences of such actions, which gave results below expectations to avoid the progression of the accident, discussing the concept of sharing of structures, systems and components at multi-unit nuclear power plants, and its eventual inappropriate use in safety-related devices which can compromise the nuclear safety, as well as its consequent impact on the Fukushima accident scenario. The lessons from Fukushima must be better learned, aiming the development of new procedures and new safety systems. Thus, the nuclear technology could reach a higher evolution level in its safety requirements. This knowledge will establish a conceptual milestone in the safety system design, becoming necessary the review of the current acceptance criteria of safety-related systems.

Abstract: Esse estudo tem como objetivo principal avaliar o impacto dos estilos de aprendizagem dos alunos e professores e estilos das disciplinas no desempenho acadêmico dos alunos de um curso de gradua o em Contabilidade no Brasil. Para identifica o dos estilos de aprendizagem foi utilizado o questionário ILS de Felder e Soloman (1991), baseado no modelo teórico de Felder e Silverman (1988). Participaram da pesquisa 194 alunos e 29 professores. Os professores, além do ILS, responderam outro questionário, elaborado pelos pesquisadores com mesmo embasamento teórico, para identifica o dos estilos de 40 disciplinas do curso. O desempenho acadêmico dos alunos foi mensurado pelas médias finais das notas das disciplinas. Os resultados mostraram que os estilos de aprendizagem predominantes nos alunos s o ativo, sensorial, visual e sequencial e nos professores s o reflexivo, intuitivo, visual e sequencial. Nas disciplinas s o predominantes os estilos reflexivo, sensorial, verbal e sequencial. Foi constatado o impacto dos estilos desses elementos no desempenho acadêmico dos alunos, tanto individualmente, como combinados.
Stable isotopes and body composition in children: History, fundamentals, and clinical applications  [PDF]
Wendell Costa Bila, Joel Alves Lamounier, André Everton de Freitas, Valmin Ramos Silva, Sylvia Dias Turani, José Eduardo Dutra de Oliveira
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.58A3009

The aim of this study was to gather information on the use of stable isotopes to measure total body water and body composition scan in children. We selected studies in the last 13 years, in addition to classical studies on the subject, indexed in the database PubMed, LILACS, BVS and SciELO. The body composition was characterized by the amount of bone tissue, muscle and adipose tissue, also including the organs as well as levels of body water. Your knowledge becomes increasingly important in light of the changes that occur in the nutritional status of various types of diseases in frameworks, such as diabetes mellitus, protein energy malnutrition, in cases of obesity and metabolic syndrome. The ability to accurately assess body fat mass especially in children is associated with the importance of effective strategies for prevention and treatment of childhood obesity. Historically, in addition to clinical applications, measurements of total body water were used to determine body composition in nutritional studies. To the knowledge of the body composition, the body water can be measured and used by the ingestion of a dose of labeled water. The measured isotope enrichment is a function of the amount of body water. The method of deuterium is particularly interesting for the assessment of body composition in children, due to its characteristics of collection and analysis.

Abstract: pre-school education, the first phase of elementary education in brazil, has been slowly consolidating as the entry of brazilian children in the educational system and as a condition that changes the children's way of participating in the public arena at the very beginning of life. the growing tendency of expanding pre-school education implies a transformation of the moments, places and ways of socializing children early in their lives. this article aims at analyzing the conceptions of pre-school teachers in regard to the education of boys in the institutional sphere. it is based on a standpoint that conceives both the individual as well as the collective experiences in the institutional space as the foundation of the individuals, which involves learning about the self, about others and about the world itself. this article argues that the educators' perceptions of the differences between boys and girls reflect social stereotypes related to gender relations and that the changes in the educational practices inside the schools, however, come into conflict with the teachers' broader social experiences, including those of their family context.
