Abstract: aim: to characterize consumption of alcohol by adolescents, to study the association of alcohol consumption with gender and age and to determine the main reasons for consumption of alcohol by adolescents. type of study: cross-sectional. location: high schools of the district of bragan?a, portugal. population: teenagers aged 13 to 19 years old. methods: in the sample, 51.6% of the subjects were females, 18.5% were 13-14 years old, 59.9% were 15-17 years old and 21.7% were 18-19 years old. the required sample size was 955 based on expected proportion of alcohol consumption of 45% with a 3% level of precision. variables studied included gender, age, alcohol consumption and reasons for consumption. data were collected using a validated questionnaire (aais) with scores ranging from 0-79. associations between variables were tested using the with chi-square statistic with significance set at the 0.05 level. results: the authors obtained 1061 questionnaires.in the sample, 96.4% had consumed alcohol in the previous year; 69.5% of the subjects consumed alcohol at least monthly. 226 subjects drank every weekend and 21 drank daily; 27.7% practiced binge drinking. a risky pattern of alcohol consumption occurred in 68.3% of the adolescents. consumption was higher among boys (p=0,032) and increased with age. “coping with peer pressure” and “taste” were given as the main reasons for drinking, independent of gender or age. conclusions: the proportion of adolescents consuming alcohol in this study was high compared to other published figures. this was higher among males and older studernts. the social environment is a strong determinant of drinking. in light of these results, an intervention strategy appears necessary in this population.
A Process for Extracting Non-Taxonomic Relationships of Ontologies from Text  [PDF]
Ivo Serra, Rosario Girardi
Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2011.34014
Abstract: Manual construction of ontologies by domain experts and knowledge engineers is an expensive and time consuming task so, automatic and/or semiautomatic approaches are needed. Ontology learning looks for identifying ontology elements like non-taxonomic relationships from information sources. These relationships correspond to slots in a frame-based ontology. This article proposes an initial process for semiautomatic extraction of non-taxonomic relationships of ontologies from textual sources. It uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to identify good candidates of non-taxonomic relationships and a data mining technique to suggest their possible best level in the ontology hierarchy. Once the extraction of these relationships is essentially a retrieval task, the metrics of this field like recall, precision and f-measure are used to perform evaluation.

Ivo Hristov, Antonio Chirico
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2016.411004
Our research focuses on the limits of the Balanced Scorecard. The aim of the work is to provide a basis for in-depth study on the limits of the balanced scorecard. According to Tranfield et al. (2003) [1] we are tackling the topic through a systematic review of the literature. We reviewed articles published in 48 journals, in 3 different subject area of Academic Journal Guide (ABS) 2015: 27 Accounting journals, 17 General Management and Employment Study journals and 4 Strategy journals. This ensured an academic quality of these articles and for each subject area we chose amongst some of the 3, 4 and 4* journals. The contributions of research to the field and the lessons learned from these studies are discussed. Knowledge gaps in existing balanced scorecard research are identified, leading to consideration of several ideas for future research.
Study on Possibility of Applying Risk Management in Village Fund Management in Landak Regency Indonesia  [PDF]
Fernandes Simangunsong, Amandus Ivo Mario
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2018.69019
Abstract: This study is focused on study on possibility of applying risk management in village fund management in Indonesia. It is intended to determine the possibility of applying risk management in village fund management, the supporting and inhibiting factors in application of risk management, and strategies in implementation of risk management. Research design used was qualitative with exploratory approach. Data in this study were collected by interviewing the respondents (purposive sample), document study and field observation. Informants in this study are Regent of Landak, Regional Secretary of Landak Regency, Spokesperson of DPRD of Landak Regency, Head of Office of Social Service, Community Empowerment, and Local Government of Landak Regency, Head of Division of Village Financial and Asset Division, Head of Section of Village Government Budget, Chief of Karangan Village, Chief of Serimbu Village, and Chief of Amboyo Inti Village. The result demonstrates that process of implementing risk management in village fund management is limited to risk assessment, consisting of risk identification, risk analysis, and risk measurement, and then to build possibility of applying risk management using scenario planning which result in that it is possible to apply risk management by making regulations and preparing human resources. The supporting factors in applying risk management lie within political development aspect, and technological development aspect encourages the application of risk management. The inhibiting factors derive from individual threat, i.e. habits and fear of the unknown and organizational threat, i.e. Inertia Group. There are two approaches in preparing strategies for implementing risk management, i.e. top-down and bottom-up. And the strategies are making regulations on application of risk management, preparing human resources, providing budget, providing facilities and infrastructures that support the application of risk management.
Adult Diapause in Coleoptera
Ivo Hodek
Psyche , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/249081
Abstract: Recent studies dealing with adult (reproductive) diapause in the Coleoptera are reviewed, as a kind of supplement to the classic compendia. In the first two sections, the general characteristics of adult diapause are described and principal terms explained. Original articles dealing with 19 species from nine coleopteran families (Coccinellidae, Chrysomelidae, Bruchidae, Curculionidae, Carabidae, Silphidae, Scolytidae, Scarabaeidae, and Endomychidae) are reviewed. Finally attempts are made at generalisations from the papers reviewed, and hypotheses on diapause evolution are inferred. A polyphenic character of diapause is a prominent feature in C. septempunctata and L. decemlineata, but has been found also in other Coleoptera and in insects generally and often generates voltinism heterogeneity within populations.

Mattozzi, Ivo;
Educa??o em Revista , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-46982008000100009
Abstract: what are the different potentials of history study programs concerning the heritage education? how can history teachers fulfill this commitment? what is the progress of meaningful knowledge and of cognitive operations? which educational strategies are to be used and with which learning processes? to answer these questions, i will first analyze the relation between marks of the past, territory, cultural goods, and heritage based on the contributions of cicerchia 2004, branchesi 2006, gardner 1991 and 1993, nardi 1996, and pansini 2004. these four aspects make up a conceptual map that may guide study program choices at the different levels of basic education. next, i will briefly present a study program proposal that i have developed along the years as a history teacher and researcher (i. mattozzi, and tonto, g. di (a c. di), 2000; mattozzi, i. (a cura di), 2005; mattozzi, i. 1990; mattozzi, i. 1990). i will point out how it can serve heritage education and contribute to the education of children and teenagers on history.
O conceito de federalismo e a idéia de interesse no Brasil do século XIX
Coser, Ivo;
Dados , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0011-52582008000400005
Abstract: this article analyzes the formation of the concept of federalism in 19th century brazilian political debate. we seek to understand the transition from the concept of confederation to that of federalism and the political values that came to be associated with the latter. based on the methodology of conceptual history formulated by reinhart koselleck, we focus on the continuities and breaks in the issue of decentralization. analyzing 19th century newspapers and parliamentary debates, we contend that the notion of provincial interest is a key aspect for understanding the federalist thinking formulated in the first half of the 19th century.
O debate entre centralizadores e federalistas no século XIX: a trama dos conceitos
Coser, Ivo;
Revista Brasileira de Ciências Sociais , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-69092011000200011
Abstract: this article aims at understanding the main changes in the content of concepts of centralization and federalism along the 19th century, combing them with the lines of interpretation of the brazilian political thought. in the centralizing thought there was the precedence of public interest in confrontation with private interests. such subordination does not arise from realizing an existing delay in the society which would be up to the state to correct by duty means of authoritarian instruments, but rather from the legitimacy that this body has had towards society. the federalist thought was marked by the idea of individual interest established by the search of the citizen's freedom and the autonomy of provinces. we have tried to interpret it by means of historical context changes.
Changes in Fragmentation and the Ecological Stability of Floodplain Forest Geobiocenosis in the River Morava Floodplain Over the Course of the 20th Century

Journal of Landscape Ecology , 2008, DOI: 10.2478/v10285-012-0004-5
Abstract: The process of ecosystem fragmentation influences diversity and ecological stability in a significant way. This paper presents the results of analysis of changes in fragmentation and the ecological stability of the floodplain forest geobiocenosis in the Vrapa National Nature Reserve, a model area used for research into optimal forest reserve management methods in the Czech Republic (Simon, 2007). Using GIS methods, it was determined that fragmentation within this floodplain forest area decreased slightly between 1938 and 2006, and that the ecological stability of the landscape remains high. The results speak in favour of those theories advocating anthropogenic conditioning of floodplain forest ecosystems and show that even strongly anthropogenically modified geobiocenoses may show a high level of ecological stability, which is especially characteristic of the geobiocenoses of floodplain forests (Maděra, 2003).
