The Effects of Tourism Architecture on Island Ecosystems  [PDF]
Lourdes Ruiz
Journal of Building Construction and Planning Research (JBCPR) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jbcpr.2015.34016
Abstract: This research aims to propose environmental prevention and mitigation on fragile coastal ecosystems due to the actions of the tourist architecture, using methods of life-cycle assessment of buildings, matrix methods of the actions that cause severe environmental impact and statistical processing through multivariate analysis. A study of projects was undertaken in Cayo Coco located to the north of Ciego de Avila, Cuba, being built today and where the tourist development of the archipelago Sabana-Camaguey started. It has been determined that suitable architecture would decrease the negative impact of these fragile ecosystems.
Strategic Environmental Assessment of Towns in Ecuador with Tourism Potential  [PDF]
Lourdes Ruiz
Journal of Building Construction and Planning Research (JBCPR) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jbcpr.2016.41005
Abstract: The aim of this study is to apply the methodology for assessment of environmental impact whether of a physicochemical nature and on the biodiversity and ecosystems, or whether sociocultural and economic aspects of the historic towns with tourism interest that are assessed. The automated method of the RIAM software is used which requires a baseline study of the environment of different towns to be prepared. In addition, the analysis of the social perception on tourism of the local people from the course work of students at the UIDE shall be applied. The conclusions of the case studies undertaken allow for strategic proposals and recommendations to be prepared so that they can be incorporated into the management plans for tourism in the historic towns with heritage value.
Incorporation of Environmental and Sustainable Indicators in Universities  [PDF]
Lourdes Ruiz
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2016.76075
Abstract:

The use of environmental and sustainable indicators of global organizations has greater advantages than those of national initiatives or those developed by researchers in said subject, due to the fact that they have a much broader scope for sustainability, have been applied in a systematic manner and therefore have greater comparability and reliability. The environmental indicators are constructed from the approaches to sustainable development in universities with regards to the social, economic, institutional and environmental dimensions in the organizations. This work involves the application of environmental and sustainable indicators for internationally recognized efficiency in university activities, which contribute towards organizing, summarizing and developing the processes for development planning and environmental management.

Adverse Environmental Effects of Tourism on Communities in the Ecuadorian Highlands Region  [PDF]
Lourdes Ruiz
Current Urban Studies (CUS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/cus.2017.53019
Abstract: The objective of this study is to determine the adverse environmental effects of tourism activities on various heritage populations located in the sierra or Andean highlands region of Ecuador. The effects being studied have been classified into impacts on the physical, abiotic, biotic, socio-culture and economic environment. The automated method using RIAM (Rapid Impact Assessment Matrix) software was employed in this analysis, which required the preparation of a baseline study in the small communities evaluated. A social perception survey was conducted of local residents regarding tourism, assisted by International University of Ecuador students fulfilling practical coursework requirements. Based on the conclusions of the case studies, some strategic proposals and recommendations were developed that can be incorporated into sustainable tourism management plans in communities with natural and cultural heritage values.
Impact Assessment of Tourism Construction in Cuba  [PDF]
Lourdes Ruiz Gutiérrez
Journal of Building Construction and Planning Research (JBCPR) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jbcpr.2015.31002
Abstract: This paper discusses a methodology for the environmental assessment of tourist facilities located in Cuban coastal zones in which the general aspects of the process are discussed, defined, and characterized, and examines the main processes that occur as a result of the negative impacts of construction activities. It establishes the theoretical conceptual framework underlying the research and includes a detailed analysis and processing of a sample of tourism projects located in coastal ecosystems. The methodology is complemented by results that include proposed strategic lines of action and a plan for managing negative environmental impacts throughout the life cycle of tourist facilities through prevention, correction and mitigation measures. It ends with conclusions and recommendations to guide tourism development toward environmental sustainability.
The Environmental Effects of Tourism Architecture on Island Ecosystem in Cayo Guillermo, Cuba  [PDF]
Lourdes Ruiz Gutiérrez
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2015.69093
Abstract: The objective of this study is to determine the main adverse impacts that may be caused by tourism architecture upon island ecosystems consisting of small islands or islets and to propose an architectural and landscape design with a focus on the environmental sustainability of the same. A study of projects was undertaken in Cayo Guillermo, located to the north of Ciego de Avila in Cuba using methods of life-cycle assessment of buildings, matrix methods of the activities that caused severe environmental impact and statistical processing through multivariate analysis. Conclusions were reached on the need for designs that did not harm the ecosystems of islands with high ecological fragility. It has been determined that suitable construction intervention would decrease the negative impact and would allow the natural resources of these valuable ecosystems that are the basis for responsible sun and sand tourism to be preserved.
Landscapes of Andenes and Sustainable Infrastructure in Andean Cities  [PDF]
Ruiz Lourdes, Gavilanes Alejandro
Journal of Building Construction and Planning Research (JBCPR) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jbcpr.2019.73006
Abstract: This article aims to analyze cities located in the high mountain ecosystems formed by the landscape of Andenes or sustainable infrastructure of terraces located in the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Andean highlands of central South America. The selected case studies have in common the use of land for settlement purposes, and the fact that they pursue both urban and rural infrastructure sustainability approaches. Theoretical and empirical methods were used such as the historical-logical method, the inductive-deductive method, observation in situ and reviews of documents and maps. It is concluded that the anthropic interventions and the management and monitoring plans of each site allow for the conservation of their natural resources and of the landscape of Andenes, the improvement of the population’s quality of life, the control of structural risk to prevent erosion of the mountains where they are constructed as well as the preservation of the site’s globally significant cultural heritage (as recognised by UNESCO). Current trends in the sustainable use of cultural and natural resources of the heritage involve the conservation of terraced landscapes. Without their preservation, management or exploitation as a tourist resource cannot be carried out.

Valor del tacto rectal y el antígeno prostático específico en el pesquisaje del adenocarcinoma de próstata
Sandoval Jiménez,Odalys; Santana Sarrhy,Lourdes; Coll Ruiz,Mario;
Revista Cubana de Cirug?-a , 2002,
Abstract: se realizó un estudio para valorar la utilidad del pesquisaje en el diagnóstico del adenocarcinoma de próstata, en 5 consultorios del médico de la familia, en el municipio plaza de la revolución, en el período de 1998 al 2000. el universo del estudio estuvo constituido por 97 varones, todos mayores de 50 a?os y supuestamente sanos. a todos los pacientes se les realizó una dosificación de antígeno prostático específico (psa) total y luego tacto rectal. en los casos cuando apareció alguna alteración o signo de sospecha de posible desarrollo de células malignas, se les practicó un mapeo citológico de la glándula prostática a través de la biopsia con aguja fina. se constató en el estudio que el tacto rectal es un examen que mantiene utilidad para el diagnóstico del adenocarcinoma de próstata, y presentó en la investigación una positividad del 15 %. el psa total se mostró alterado en 6 casos, y fue positivo de células malignas en los 3 pacientes cuando su valor era superior a 10 ng/ml. aunque la muestra no fue selectiva, es de se?alar la alta incidencia de adenocarcinoma de próstata (4,1 %) que aparece en esta investigación
