Abstract: El Síndrome Nefrótico primario (SN) responde favorablemente a corticoides en un 80-90% de los casos. Los pacientes cortico resistentes (SNCR) evolucionan, en su gran mayoría, a insuficiencia renal crónica (IRC). De etiología desconocida, se ha reportado la presencia de un factor de permeabilidad (FP) en el suero de estos pacientes, con algunos efectos conocidos a nivel de otras membranas biológicas, incluyendo el peritoneo. Objetivo: Evaluar las pérdidas proteicas vía peritoneo en ni os con SNCR en diálisis peritoneal crónica (DP). Pacientes y Método: Análisis retrospectivo de 4 a os (2003-2007), Se incluyeron 9 pacientes portadores de SNCR (grupo 1), y un grupo control de 10 ni os en DP portadores de IRC por otra etiología (grupo 2). Se evaluó a los 2 grupos al mes 1 y 6 ó 12 de su ingreso. Los grupos fueron comparables respecto a edad, sexo, peso, superficie corporal, tiempo en DP, concentración de dextrosa utilizada, modalidad dialítica y dosis de diálisis. Resultados: No se observó diferencias de los parámetros bioquímicos (creatinina, nitrógeno ureico, calcio, fósforo). La hormona paratiroidea (PTH) fue significativamente mayor en el grupo control (164 ± 144 vs 564 ± 454 pg/dl p < 0,05), y la albúmina fue menor en los pacientes con SN al inicio (2,27 ± 0,63 gr/dl vs 3,62 ± 1,45 gr/dl p < 0,05) y al final de la evaluación (2,8 ± 0,5 gr/dl vs 3,9 ±0,86 gr/dl, p < 0,05). Las pérdidas proteicas peritoneales fueron significativamente mayores en el grupo 1 vs el grupo 2 al ingreso: 3,41 ± 2,01 vs 1,76 ± 1,45 gr/m2/día, y al final de la evaluación: 4,27 ± 3,47 vs 1,66 ±1,31 gr/m2/día, (p < 0,05) respectivamente. Lo mismo ocurrió con las pérdidas urinarias. No hubo diferencias en la ingesta proteica, KtV peritoneal ni KtV total entre los grupos, mientras que el KtV residual fue significativamente menor en los pacientes nefróticos al término del estudio, sugiriendo una caída más precoz de la función renal residual. Tampoco se observó diferencias respecto a las tasas de peritonitis en el período estudiado. Conclusión: Las pérdidas de proteínas por peritoneo en pacientes en DP portadores de SN, son significativamente mayores que en el resto de los pacientes en DP, y son consistentes con un posible efecto sistémico de un FP en estos pacientes.

Abstract: primary nephrotic syndrome (ns) responds favorably to steroids in 80-90% of cases. most corticoresistant (cr) patients evolve into chronic renal failure (crf), of unknown origin, a permeability factor in these patient's serum has been reported, with some known effects in membranes including the peritoneum. objective: to evaluate peritoneal protein loss in cr children on chronic peritoneal dialysis (cpd). patients and methods: four year retrospective analysis. group 1 included 9 cr children, group 2 was a control group of 10 children with crf of other causes on cpd. children in both groups were comparable in age, gender, weight, body surface, duration of cpd, concentration of solution, modality and dose of dialysis. both groups were evaluated at 1, 6 and 12 months after admission. results: no differences were observes in biochemical parameters: creatinine, urea nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus. pth (parathyroid hormone) was significantly higher in the control group (164 ± 144 vs 564 ± 454 pg/dl p < 0,05), albumin was lower in ns patients at the beginning (2.27 ± 0.63 gr/dl vs 3.62 ± 1.45 gr/dl p < 0,05) and end (2.8 ± 0.5 gr/ dl vs 3.9 ± 0.86 gr/dl, p < 0,05) of the evaluation. peritoneal protein loss was significantly larger in the index group at the beginning (3,41 ± 2,01 vs 1,76 ± 1,45 gr/m7dia), and end (4,27 ± 3,47 vs 1,66 ±1,31 gr/m7dia, (p < 0.05) of the evaluation. the same happened with urinary loss: while there was no difference in protein intake, peritoneal ktv or total ktv between groups, residual ktv was significantly lower among ns patients at the end of the study, suggesting an earlier drop in residual renal function. no differences were observed in rates of peritonitis between groups in the study period. conclusion: peritoneal protein loss in cpd children with ns are significantly larger than other patients in cpd, suggesting a possible systemic permeability factor in these patients.
The Effects of Family Structure on the Development of Bilinguality  [PDF]

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2013.49098
Abstract:

This study examines the role of family structure in the development of different levels of bilinguality. Students from five different public and private universities responded to an extensive survey on various aspects of bilinguality. Participants were divided into three groups: monolinguals, non-fluent bilinguals and fluent bilinguals. In line with the initial hypothesis, higher levels of bilinguality correlated with having more bilingual family members. Also further evidence was found for the importance of the mother, father and sisters in becoming bilingual. Additionally, the presence of bilingual step-parents and grandparents on acquisition and maintenance of a second language was examined and fund to be much less influential than the role of the parents. Finally, the influence of socio-economic status (SES) on development of bilinguality was measured with no clear effect being found. The unique contribution of this study is that it attempts to connect the influence of specific family members to different levels of bilinguality.

Abstract: Introducción: Un Evento de Aparente Amenaza a la Vida (ALTE) plantea un importante desafío al pediatra, quién debe investigar la etiología para orientar su conducta. Esta labor se facilita con la aplicación de una guía. Objetivo: Describir la presentación clínica y determinar posibles causas de ALTE mediante un protocolo especifico. Pacientes y Método: Estudio prospectivo en lactantes que consultaron en un Servicio de Urgencia y se hospitalizaron por ALTE entre Mayo 2002 a Mayo 2005. Se evaluaron con un protocolo preestablecido considerando la descripción del episodio, antecedentes y estudios complementarios por pasos. Resultados: En 109 pacientes con ALTE, edad promedio 11 semanas, se observó apnea en 100% y cambio de color en 97%. El 83% presentó cambio de tono y en el 96% se utilizaron maniobras para abortar el episodio. Se consideró idiopático el 14% de los casos. Las principales causas atribuidas fueron: infecciones respiratorias (46%), reflujo gastroesofágico (16%), convulsiones (6%) e infecciones urinarias (6%). Fallecieron 3 pacientes. Conclusiones: Mediante este protocolo, que utiliza herramientas disponibles en la mayoría de los hospitales públicos terciarios de nuestro país, se atribuyeron causas similares a las reportadas en otros estudios prospectivos, donde destaca un menor porcentaje de episodios idiopáticos Background: An Apparent Life-Threatening Event (ALTE) is an important challenge for the pediatrician, which requires guidelines for finding the etiology and making appropriate clinical decisions.

Abstract: Effective management of emotions is an important aspect of human behavior. Many investigations in the field of personality indicate that emotional maturity and social skills along with intelligence bring adjustment and success in one's life. An emotionally intelligent person can manage his /her feeling in a better way and cope with stress, with the effective ability to solve problems. It is said that the emotionally intelligent person is the one who is capable to managing one's feeling and emotions in various aspects of one's life. Such a person consequently is well adjusted and more successful in various areas of educational and other professional fields.
Using Q-methodology to identify local perspectives on wildfires in two Koyukon Athabascan communities in rural Alaska

Abstract: Sustainable resource management depends upon the participation of resource-dependent communities. Competing values between community members and government agencies and among groups within a community can make it difficult to find mutually acceptable management goals and can disadvantage certain resource users. This study uses Q-methodology to discover groups with shared perspectives on wildfire policy in the Koyukon Athabascan villages of Galena and Huslia, Alaska. Before the study, participants appeared to disagree over the amount of wildfire suppression needed, but Q-method results showed three perspectives united around deeper, less oppositional concerns: Caucasian residents and resource managers who preferred natural processes; older Koyukon residents concerned about losing local control, small animals, and cultural places; and younger Koyukon residents who felt subsistence activities were resilient to social-ecological change. Additionally, both Koyukon groups suspected it was cheaper to suppress all wildfires while small. These results imply that community frustration with wildfire management may be reduced through collaborative research with Koyukon elders on locally important issues, cultural site mapping in order to extend some level of wildfire protection, and greater agency transparency about wildfire-suppression costs. The results also indicate that age may be an understudied driver of community resource-use preferences. This study proposes that without identifying resource user-interest groups and their main concerns, it is difficult to develop equitable environmental goals. It shows how Q-methodology provides a systematic approach for identifying the stakeholders and issues needed in resource management.
"Blue Jeans, Black Leather Jackets, and a Sneer: The Iconography of the 1950s Biker and its Translation Abroad"
Lily Phillips
International Journal of Motorcycle Studies , 2005,
Abstract: The biker, along with the inner-city gang member the iconic symbol of 1950s juvenile delinquency, changed over the course of the 1950s and 1960s from a figure of violent alienation to a joke to a counter cultural hero. This transformation is significant because it mirrors the change in overall attitudes toward juvenile delinquency during this period, a change that I argue was crucial to the development of the Counterculture so central to the 1960s. In this article, I study this transformation as a consequence of the situational dynamics of the Cold War, where the biker functioned, on a symbolic level, as a foil and complement to American national identity. The biker as iconic figure provides us with a focal point for studying these larger cultural processes.
