Lisette Winkler
Nuevo mundo - Mundos Nuevos , 2009, DOI: 10.4000/nuevomundo.49283
Abstract: Presentación (en espa ol) Durante aproximadamente un mes de trabajo de campo en Chile, Lisette Winkler (EScoM-FMSH) ha grabado una serie de entrevistas que les hizo a los descendientes de los colonos alemanes quienes se instalaron en los alrededores del lago Llanquihue en el siglo XIX. Los documentos audiovisuales fueron recopilados en dos aldeas del sur del país, Frutillar y Puerto Octay. Recogen tanto testimonios orales de los descendientes como tomas panorámicas de los paisajes del sur, qu...

Iodine—A Potential Antioxidant and the Role of Iodine/Iodide in Health and Disease  [PDF]
Rudolf Winkler
Natural Science (NS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2015.712055
Abstract: In human physiology, iodine is primarily noted for its role in thyroid function and less so for its many extrathyroidal functions, particularly those based on its antioxidant properties. As I- it protects against free radicals and peroxides. This is seen in vitro in decreased depolymerization of hyaluronic acid and increased antioxidant status in human serum, and in vivo in increased antioxidant enzyme activities and decreases of malondialdehyde and peroxides. It could be shown or deduced that balneotherapeutic applications of iodine/iodide have a positive effect on cardiocirculatory diseases, respiratory disorders, some eye diseases (dry eye, cataract, age-related macular degeneration), and other degenerative diseases connected with increased oxidative stress that are also treated by balneotherapy.

El portafolio: estrategia para evaluar la producción escrita en inglés por parte de estudiantes universitarios
Núcleo , 2007,
Abstract: this paper proposes the use of the portfolio as a strategy to assess writing skills in english in university students. the proposal is a response, basically, to the lack of innovation in assessment procedures at universities, the rigidna ture of this area, and a poor participation of students in their ownlearning process in efl. therefore, a qualitative case study has been conducted in the field of written production as well as a thorough research with venezuelan experts in the use of the portfolio. finally, a comparison among experiences, both ours and experts?, allowed us to conclude about the potential and the impact that portfolios have as strategies to assess writing skills.
Turning Research into Action: Using Factor Analysis to Enhance Program Evaluation  [PDF]
Ruth Wetta, Lisette T. Jacobson, Frank Dong
Open Journal of Applied Sciences (OJAppS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojapps.2013.34038

Purpose: Sexual activity among adolescents in the United States remains high. Nearly 46% of students grades 9-12 have engaged in sexual intercourse. One of the more recent statistical tools employed in evaluation efforts includes factor analysis. The objective of this study was to investigate the underlying dimensions of a survey instrument that assesses a youth character development program, which focuses on avoiding high-risk behaviors. Method: The 76-item survey instrument was administered to adolescents (age 12-18). During the 2009-2010 school year, 652 participants in the intervention group and 1110 participants in the comparison group completed the pre-, post-, and 6-month follow-up survey. Results: Using Ajzen’s theory of planned behavior groupings, 27 survey items were selected. Through iterative principal axis factoring, four factors were extracted and rotated. A visual scree plot was generated to determine the number of acceptable factors. The extracted factors accounted for 52.53% of the total variance. Factors were subjected to Equimax rotation with Kaiser normalization and converged after six iterations. Variables with patterned weights less than 0.44 were excluded. A reliability analysis demonstrated internal consistency. Conclusions: Identified factors included: 1) Teenagers’ attitudes toward sexual health behaviors; 2) Teenagers’ perceptions of the consequences of sexual health behaviors; 3) Parental or guardian expectations; and 4) Teenagers’ relationships with parents or guardians. This study’s results indicated that all factors can be described within Ajzen’s theoretical framework consistent with previous research findings. Results may be used to enhance delivery of the intervention.

Clinical Evaluation of Fluido Compact: A New Intravenous Fluid Warmer  [PDF]
Juan M. Zaballos, Lisette De la Cruz
Open Journal of Anesthesiology (OJAnes) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojanes.2017.74010
Abstract: Unintended peri-operative hypothermia is very common in surgical patients and is associated with adverse outcomes. Perioperative use of forced-air and intravenous fluid warmers is recommended for hypothermia prevention. This study evaluated the ease of use of Fluido Compact, a new fluid warming device, and its ability to help as part of the intraoperative patient temperature management. It was used in 36 patients undergoing scheduled surgery at risk of hypothermia under regional, general or combined anesthesia, of more than one hour duration and with a predicted intravenous fluid administration of at least 1000 ml. The fluid warmer is very easy to set up. The disposable cassette has a very low (3 ml) priming volume and it is easy to handle and to place inside the warming module. Once connected to the main power outlet, it is ready to deliver fluid at target temperature in just a few seconds. Control panel is intuitive, and the one button operation system makes it safe and convenient. The combination of peri-operative patient surface warming with Mistral-Air forced-air warming system and intravenous fluid warming with Fluido Compact, that allowed the administration of IV perfusions at body temperature at the rate needed thus avoiding heat loss, helps to maintain intraoperative core temperature between 36.4°C and 36.8°C. A group of patients undergo a variety of surgical procedures with neuraxial, general or combined epidural-general anesthesia.
Reasons for and Contexts of Deep Theological Engagement with Other Religious Traditions in Europe: Toward a Comparative Theology
Ulrich Winkler
Religions , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/rel3041180
Abstract: The different contexts of America and Europe have a significant impact on the development of comparative theology, especially in the German-speaking countries. The latter have found other solutions to the problem of religious pluralism that are not really conducive to comparative theology. Hence, the double responsibility of Catholic theology in particular toward the university and toward the Church is a part of the discourse policy of theology, which affects the theology of religions and comparative theology. On the one hand, theology is under the protection of the state, and on the other hand theology is threatened by the risk of unreliability due to ecclesiastical paternalism. But the theology of religions and comparative theology do not evade into science of religion or neo-orthodoxy, rather, they take a risk in a theological engagement with other religions, bringing one’s own faith into a deep encounter with other religions and their faiths while delving into points of detail. After giving short descriptions of these tasks, this article shows some examples of practice in comparative theology and gives a prospect into potential further developments of comparative theology in theories of difference and spaces.
Describing schools the way they are : reflecting on a baseline study in the Boland
G. Winkler
South African Journal of Education , 2002,
Abstract: This article critically engages with the conceptual framework of a baseline study and investigates some of the assumptions underlying its design. The discussion focuses on two central questions : Firstly, what is the value of descriptive data? Secondly, what significance should be given to the data in relation to the development process as a whole? In conclusion there are some thoughts about how to report on the research so that the process of talking and writing about the data is not a mere formality at the end, but becomes a tool for thinking about the project as it grows.

Abstract: . The paper deals with the initial value problem with zero Dirichlet boundary data for $$ u_t = u^p \Delta u \quad \mbox{in } \Omega \times (0,\infty) $$ with $p \ge 1$. The behavior of positive solutions near the boundary is discussed and significant differences from the case of the heat equation ($p=0$) and the porous medium equation ($p \in (0,1)$) are found. In particular, for $p \ge 1$ there is a large class of initial data for which the corresponding solution will never enter the cone $\{ v \Omega \to \R \ | \ \exists \, c>0 \ v(x) \ge c \dist(x,\rO) \}$.\\ Finally, for $p>2$ a solution $u$ with $u(t) \in C_0^\infty(\Omega) \ \forall \, t \ge 0$ is constructed.
