Abstract: Since the initial series, the study of grammatical rules are introduced. In this process, each year, the student is taken to review all that has he already studied in previous series on the grammatical content and advance learning other content. We reflect, then, if the student, after years of schooling, finds it difficult to use what they learned in English classes, what are these classes used for ? This paper aims to demonstrate that in the Portuguese language classes is the key that was developed sense of analysis and interpretation of the facts of language and the relation between words, statements and periods within an oral or written text. These elements represent a demonstration that the reader actually has a conscious mastery of the mechanisms of their language and thus understand what they read.

Abstract: Background: Pain perception may result from orthodontic treatment and should be considered in clinical management. Its assessment should not be limited to the intensity of perceived pain but should also consider the psychosocial and behavioral aspects involved. Objective: The aims of this study were to adapt and validate the Multidimensional Pain Inventory (MPI) for orthodontic patients, and present a proposal to calculate an overall score of the pain-related aspects and compare these scores with the usual methodology used. Methods: Face validity of the MPI was estimated and orthodontic version (MPI-Orthodontic) was developed. Factorial validity was evaluated by confirmatory analysis. Convergent and discriminant validity and reliability were estimated. The fit of Second-Order Hierarchical Models was estimated. Concurrent validity of MPI-Orthodontic was evaluated against the Visual Analogue Scale. Invariance of the factorial models was evaluated for independent samples and according to sex and age. Overall score was calculated using the matrix of regression weights and compared to simple arithmetic mean. Results: 507 individuals (63.3% women; age: 26.32 (SD = 11.70) years) participated. For the fit of Part I (psychosocial aspects) of the MPI-Orthodontic, it added correlation between two items and excluded one item; for Part II (behavioral aspects) two items were excluded. The models presented adequate fit to the sample. Reliability was adequate. MPI-Orthodontic presented invariance for independent samples and adequate concurrent and divergent validity. Score obtained with the simple arithmetic mean was overestimated for Part I and underestimated for Part II. Conclusion: MPI-Orthodontic was valid, reliable and invariant for the evaluation of the orthodontic pain. It is recommended to calculate overall weighted scores for pain assessment.

Abstract: For a long time the communication has experienced a great process of evolution, which provides a large exchange between individuals. Today, great advances came about mainly due to information technology. Through these innovations new genres of texts come up at every moment to supply their communicative needs. It demands that we become updated and follow these changes, as well as we join to the process of digital literacy. Blogs, websites, chat rooms, forums, e-mails, among others, are the newest ways to interact with the contemporary world. The language used in these types of genres is known as Internetês. It is characterized by containing the codes and it is widely used by young people, who search for to innovating their ways of communication. So, this paper aims to analyze and understand the environment of Internet chat. Through a functionalist approach, we aim to identify and interpret the functions of language present in this environment of virtual communication.

Species of Staphylococcus are common in hospital infection (HI). Methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA) has also become a serious problem in Brazilian HI. The aim of this study was to characterize the pathogenicity of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) and methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) isolated in public hospitals. The clinical isolates were obtained from intensive care unit. The MRSA and MSSA strains were genotyped by PCR for detection genes related to virulence factors. Moreover, the strains were tested for biofilm formation and cytokine induction in macrophages. Three strains of MRSA (9.68%) expressed the Sea gene, one (3.23%) Seb, 17 (54.84%) Spa and seven (22.58%) had PVL. Two MSSA strains (2.98%) expressed the Sea gene, three (4.48%) Seb, 18 (26.87%) Spa and 11 (16.42%) showed positive results for the PVL gene. There was no expression of Sec and CflA between MRSA and MSSA strains. Among MRSA and MSSA isolates, none statistical differences were observed in biofilm production. The analysis of cytokine induction in the inflammatory response of J774 macrophages by MRSA and MSSA isolates did not show statistical difference. Understanding the mechanisms of pathogenesis of S. aureus could provide important clues for both preventing and treating infection caused by these organisms.

Abstract: hyperthyroidism is associated with a general muscle weakness, which is part of the initial clinical manifestation of about 80% of patients. the recovery of skeletal muscle performance during hyperthyroidism treatment depends on both greater muscle mass and improved muscle function. strength training is an effective method to improve muscle strength and endurance. the purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of this type of training on the recovery of the skeletal muscle function of patients with hyperthyroidism. patients referred to the endocrinology out-patient clinic with clinical diagnosis and laboratory confirmation of grave's disease were submitted, before the treatment and 4 months later, to anthropometric measurements and determination of maximal static strength and endurance (sustaining 30% of the maximal force) of four movements [left handgrip (lh), right handgrip (rh), legpress (leg), ankle plantar flexion (apf) and supine benchpress (sp)]. after the first evaluation, the patients were divided into two groups: 1) control (cg- drug treatment) and 2) training (tg- added individualized strength training twice a week). results (cg, n=3; tg, n=4; all women) showed: the authors concluded that strength training seems to favor an increase in skeletal muscle mass and performance in patients with hyperthyroidism.

This study investigates the biofilm formation, presence and distribution of virulence genes and the capacity to induce an inflammatory response in strains of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from milk samples in Bahia, Brazil. A total of 132 samples of raw milk were collected from four dairy farms (designated A to D) located in southwestern Bahia, in the municipality of Vitória da Conquista, from October/2009 to September/2010. After processing of the samples, 94 (71.2%) S. aureus isolates were obtained. These strains were subjected to the antibiogram method MIC (Minimum Inhibitory Concentration). As for the pathogenicity, tests were performedin vitrobiofilm formation induced by glucose. Moreover, we performed PCR for their virulence genes: sea (enterotoxin A), seb (B), sec (C), pvl (Panton-Valentine Leukocidin), clfA (Clumping Factor A) and spa (protein A) and analysis of cytokine induction in the inflammatory response of J774 macrophages by exocellular lipoteichoic acid. No isolates were resistant to oxacillin and vancomycin. In biofilm production, 5.31% (5/94) isolates did not produce biofilm, 5.31% (5/94) of the samples were poor producers, 15.96% (15/94) strains were moderate producers, 18.09% (17/94) were producers and 55.32% (55/94) of isolates were strong biofilm producers. One (1.06%) isolate expressed the seb gene, one (1.06%) sec, 18 (19.2%) cflA and 44 (46.8%) had spa. There was no expression of sea and pvl between isolates analyzed. The analysis of cytokine induction in the inflammatory response did not show statistical difference in the levels of IL-6, TNF-α and IL-10 induction. However, there was statistical difference in IL-1 induction between isolates from different farms. Thus, it appears that the results obtained in this study show significant effects for the region studied, since it is an important dairy region, hence the need for further studies, with the intent of attracting funding that contributes to improving prevention and control in both dairy farms and dairy industries, since milk contamination poses a serious potential health risk to consumers.

O planejamento como prática do poder
Lucas Maia dos Santos
Revista Espa?o Acadêmico , 2009,
Abstract: Este texto visa apresentar uma leitura crítica acerca da prática de planejamento. N o é um esbo o histórico, mas t o-somente uma interpreta o do planejamento e como este está inserido na lógica de reprodu o da sociedade capitalista. Argumenta para tanto que a prática de planejamento é realizada pela institui o estatal. Esta é um produto genuíno das sociedades de classes. O próprio estado tem como base social uma classe específica: a burocracia. Esta defende, dentro dos quadros da sociedade capitalista, os interesses gerais da burguesia, por mais que possa dentro de dadas circunstancias sociais específicas opor-se a fra es da burguesia, mas nunca aos interesses gerais de classe da burguesia. Defendemos que o poder é uma rela o de domina o. Como tal, o planejamento é desta maneira uma manifesta o da domina o de classe através da regula o do estado. A institui o estatal é desta forma responsável tanto por regularizar a prática do planejamento, quanto em muitos casos executar os planos ela própria. Assim, defende-se neste texto a necessidade de se superar as rela es sociais que engendram o planejamento viabilizado pelo estado. Suprime-se assim o próprio planejamento.

Abstract: this research aimed to evaluate organizational and performance features of a traditional basic health unit, from the primary health care service network, as from users' perspective. the sample of 55 users was established using the same criteria of a rapid evaluation methodology, which was already validated, and based on a free lectureship research sampling process. empirical data were collected using the primary care assessment tool instrument, validated for brazil. results revealed that access is one of the bottlenecks in the system. primary health care practice does not focus on families and community in its process of work. the basic health unit offers several services, establishing itself as an entrance to the system, however, it not always establishes link with users. investments are needed in the brazilian municipal health network in order to strengthen primary health care attributes.
A autonomia do direito como imanência interdisciplinar: reflex es a partir da querela entre Gustav Hugo e Hegel = The autonomy of law as interdisciplinary immanence: reflections from the Hegel-Hugo debate
Campos, André Santos
Veritas , 2011,
Abstract: Na querela entre os membros da Escola Histórica do Direito (Hugo e Savigny) e Hegel acerca de quem tem o título legítimo para pensar o direito, para os primeiros a Filosofia do Direito é uma inerência à própria ciência sistemática do direito, enquanto para o segundo o conceito de direito passa inevitavelmente por uma dialética transsistemática (o sistema jurídico opera como infrassistema de filosofia). Existiria assim como que uma distin o entre a “Filosofia do Direito dos juristas” e a “Filosofia do Direito dos filósofos”, coexistindo sem intera o. A partir desta querela, será demonstrado que uma releitura de ambos os lados da barricada levará à anula o da possibilidade de uma tal bifurca o da Filosofia do Direito entre juristas e filósofos. A “filosofia do direito dos juristas” n o existe precisamente porque a normatividade e a aplica o constitutiva s o apenas um dos momentos da natureza do direito: ser jurista é formar-se em e produzir-se em direito continuamente nas várias etapas da natureza do direito. A atitude do direito neste sentido amplo é uma de inclus o: autonomia disciplinar aqui decorre na imanência interdisciplinar do direito. In the debate between the Historische Rechtschule (Hugo and Savigny) and Hegel about who is legitimately entitled to develop legal theory, the former considered philosophy of law to be inherent to systematic science of law, whereas the latter considered the concept of Law in a necessary transdisciplinary dialectic – there would then be a difference between ‘the jurists’ philosophy of law’ and ‘the philosophers’ philosophy of law’. I will demonstrate that such distinction cannot stand. A ‘jurists’ philosophy of law’ does not exist precisely because legal norms and their application are merely one of the law’s moments. The law’s attitude is one of inclusion: philosophy of law’s disciplinary autonomy occurs in the law’s interdisciplinary immanence.
