Abstract: strategic information systems planning (sisp) allows an organisation to determine a portfolio of computer-based applications to help it achieve its business objectives. ibm's business system planning for strategic alignment (bsp/sa) is an important technique for developing a strategic plan for an entire company's information resource. bsp/sa has been described in terms of stages and the specific tasks within them. tasks are usually done manually and require some experience. this work was thus aimed at presenting a computer-based application that automates two of the most important tasks in bsp/sa methodology: process-organisation matrix (pom) and processes-data classes-matrix (pdm). special emphasis was placed on analysing, designing and implementing systems development life-cycle for developing the software. an important part of the analysis consisted of conducting a literature review and the semi-structured interviews with some experts in sisp. a special contribution of the present work is the design and implementation of statistical reports associated with each matrix. automating this task has facilitated students being able to analyse pom and pdm during sisp workshops forming part of the information systems management course (systems engineering, universidad nacional de colombia). results arising from the workshops have also been improved.

Abstract: La planeación estratégica de sistemas de información (PESI) es el proceso por medio del cual una organización determina el portafolio de aplicaciones de computador para ayudar a lograr sus objetivos de negocios. El BSP/SA (Business System Planning for Strategical Alignment) de IBM es una importante técnica para desarrollar un plan estratégico del recurso de información de toda una empresa. El BSP/SA ha sido descrito en términos de fases y tareas específicas. Las tareas son usualmente realizadas a mano y requieren de experiencia. El objetivo principal de este trabajo es el de dar a conocer una herramienta computacional que automatiza dos de las tareas más importantes de la metodología BSP/SA: la matriz procesos - organización (MPO) y la matriz procesos – clases de datos (MPC). Para desarrollar el software se hizo énfasis en las etapas de análisis, dise o e implementación del ciclo de vida de desarrollo de sistemas. Durante la etapa de análisis fue importante la revisión de la literatura y entrevistas semiestructuradas con expertos en PESI. Una contribución especial del presente trabajo es el dise o e implementación de reportes estadísticos asociados a cada matriz. La automatización de esta tarea ha facilitado a los estudiantes el proceso de análisis de la MPO y la MPC durante el desarrollo de los talleres de PESI para la asignatura de Gestión y Gerencia de Sistemas de Información (Ingeniería de Sistemas, Universidad Nacional de Colombia). También se han mejorado los resultados obtenidos en los talleres.

On the Origin of the Common Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)  [PDF]
Andrés J. Cortés
American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2013.410248
Abstract:

Phylogeographic methods provide the tools to accurately access the geographic origin and diversification of crop species. In the present commentary, I urge the common bean community to face those methods and a tree-thinking mentality with regards to the long standing debate of the origin of common bean. Such efforts will ultimately bring back interest into wild bean studies and reinforce the uniqueness of this species as a system to study diversification, domestication and adaptive processes across the two most diverse hotspots in the world.

BMC Family Practice , 2008, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2296-9-28
Abstract: Design: A randomised, controlled trial involving two groups, one of which is the control group consisting of patients on the standard pharmacological treatment for tobacco cessation (NST) and the other is the intervention group consisting of patients on topiramate as pharmacological treatment.Setting: 29 primary care health centres in the city of Zaragoza, Spain.Sample: 180 patients, aged 18–65 years, diagnosed with major depression, smoke more than 20 cigarettes/day, who have voluntarily asked for tobacco cessation therapy.Intervention: A multi-component programme for tobacco cessation is offered to all of the patients in the study. This programme is made up of pharmacological therapy + group cognitive-behavioural therapy. Pharmacological therapy consists of NST for the control group and topiramate (200 mg/day) for the intervention group. Psychological therapy is made up of 16 sessions of manualised group therapy.Measurements: Cessation will be assessed by patient self-declared abstinence, expired air carbon monoxide levels, and cotinine levels in saliva. Questionnaires on tobacco dependence, anxiety, depression, impulsiveness and self-efficacy will be administered. The interviewers will not know which group the patient belongs to (blind). The assessments will be carried out at baseline, D (cessation day) -1, D+1, weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 13, and months 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12.Main variables: Tobacco cessation rates and tobacco dependence.Analysis: The analysis will be per intent to treat. We will use the general linear models of the SPSS version 15 statistical package, to analyse the effect of the treatment on the result variable (tobacco cessation rate).It is necessary to develop new and more effective pharmacological treatments for tobacco cessation. This randomised clinical trial will determine whether topiramate is effective for tobacco cessation in patients with depression.Current Controlled Trials ISRCTN93532081Tobacco abuse is the main avoidable cause o

Trials , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/1745-6215-10-24
Abstract: Design: A multi-centre, randomized controlled trial involving three groups: the control group, consisting of usual treatment at primary care level, and two intervention groups, one consisting of cognitive-behaviour therapy, and the other consisting of the recommended pharmacological treatment for fibromyalgia.Setting: 29 primary care health centres in the city of Zaragoza, Spain.Sample: 180 patients, aged 18–65 years, able to understand and read Spanish, who fulfil criteria for primary fibromyalgia, with no previous psychological treatment, and no pharmacological treatment or their acceptance to discontinue it two weeks before the onset of the study.Intervention: Psychological treatment is based on the manualized protocol developed by Prof. Escobar et al, from the University of New Jersey, for the treatment of somatoform disorders, which has been adapted by our group for the treatment of fibromyalgia. It includes 10 weekly sessions of cognitive-behaviour therapy. Pharmacological therapy consists of the recommended pharmacological treatment for fibromyalgia: pregabalin (300–600 mg/day), with duloxetine (60–120 mg/day) added where there is a comorbid depression).Measurements: The following socio-demographic data will be collected: sex, age, marital status, education, occupation and social class. The diagnosis of psychiatric disorders will be made with the Structured Polyvalent Psychiatric Interview. Other instruments to be administered are the Pain Catastrophizing Scale, the Hamilton tests for Anxiety and for Depression, the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ), the EuroQuol-5 domains (EQ-5D), and the use of health and social services (CSRI). Assessments will be carried out at baseline, 1, 3, and 6 months.Main variable: Pain catastrophizing.Analysis: The analysis will be per intent to treat. We will use the general linear models of the SPSS version 15 statistical package, to analyse the effect of the treatment on the result variable (pain catastrophizing).It is nec

Los genoveses, el adelantado Pedro Fajardo y Enrique IV: comercio, fraudes y ambiciones territoriales en el Reino de Murcia (1454-1474)
Quinteros Cortés, Javier
Anuario de Estudios Medievales , 2011,
Abstract: This article analyzes the exceptional privileges that Governor Pedro Fajardo and the City Council of Murcia granted to the Genoese merchants between 1454 and 1474, mostly to the Negro and Spínola families, to import and export products to and from the other extreme of the border of the Kingdom of Granada, with guaranteed insurances for the incomes of the city. This security proves an absence of danger in the commercial transit in the coasts of Granada and challenges the idea of rivalry between the Governor and the king of Granada formulating a new hypothesis: a mercantile alliance between both ringleaders that protected the Kingdom of Murcia of an economic blockade on the part of Castilian king Henry IV after the conflict with the unsuccessful Alphonso XII. El presente artículo analiza los excepcionales privilegios que el Adelantado Pedro Fajardo y el Concejo de Murcia concedieron a los mercaderes genoveses entre 1454 y 1474, principalmente a las familias Negro y Spínola, para importar y exportar productos desde y hacia el otro extremo de la frontera del Reino de Granada, con seguros avalados con las rentas de la ciudad. Esta seguridad en el tránsito comercial demuestra una ausencia de peligro en las costas granadinas que pone en entredicho la idea de rivalidad entre el Adelantado y el rey de Granada formulando una nueva hipótesis: una alianza mercantil entre ambos cabecillas que protegía al Reino de Murcia de un bloqueo económico por parte del rey Enrique IV tras el conflicto con el fallido Alfonso XII.
Social education politics in a Europe of inequalities
Javier Bascu?an Cortés
Journal of New Approaches in Educational Research , 2013, DOI: 10.7821/naer.2.2.102-108
Abstract: The aim of this research is to analyse some indicators which allow us to understand the current state of social education politics in Europe, with special reference to Spain. Some European and Spanish social and educational policies which try to confront the challenges of the current financial crisis are also explained. Some deficiencies, failures and contradictions attached to the process of the construction of European citizenship are pointed out. Some key topics which seem to foresee a deeper social and democratic crisis apart from the economic one are tackled. It is explained how the new forms of inequality evidence the failure of some of the important declarations of intent and objectives of the European Union. The subjection of social and democratic aspects to neoliberal economy —i.e. the negation of ideologies— is questioned. To conclude, some key topics are proposed as the central axis through which it could be possible to redefine the content of social education politics in Europe and Spain and to set the bases of a new democratic European citizenship

Abstract: We conducted a six-month, multicenter, randomized, blinded, parallel group, controlled trial in which patients were randomly assigned to one of three study arms: CBT (n = 57), RPT (n = 56) and TAU at the primary care level (n = 56). The major outcome of this study was PC in patients with fibromyalgia. The secondary variables were pain acceptance, depression, anxiety, pain, global function and quality of life.CBT significantly decreased global PC at the six-month follow-up examination with effect sizes of Cohen's d = 0.73 and 1.01 compared with RPT and TAU, respectively. CBT was also more effective than RPT and TAU at increasing pain acceptance at the six-month follow-up examination (effect sizes of Cohen's d = 0.77 and 0.80, respectively). Compared with RPT and TAU, CBT was more effective at improving global function based on the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (six-month effect sizes Cohen's d = 0.44 and 0.53, respectively) and quality of life based on the European Quality of Life Scale (six-month effect sizes Cohen's d = 0.11 and 0.40, respectively). There were no differences among the three treatments with regard to pain and depression.CBT shows higher efficacy than RPT and TAU not only in key outcomes in FM, such as function and quality of life, but also in relevant mediators of treatment effects, such as pain catastrophising and pain acceptance.ISRCTN: ISRCTN10804772The role of pain catastrophising (PC) in mediating responses to pain has received considerable attention in recent years [1-3], and a consistent relation between PC and distress reactions to painful stimulation has been demonstrated [3]. Although the defining criteria for PC have never been explicitly stated, there is general consensus that this construct involves an exaggerated negative orientation toward noxious stimuli. The aetiology of PC is not clear. It has been demonstrated that interpersonal mechanisms may not play a significant role in its development [4], whereas insecure attachment is p
