The Linkages between Real Estate Tourism and Urban Sprawl in Majorca (Balearic Islands, Spain)
Angela Hof,Macià Blázquez-Salom
Land , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/land2020252
Abstract: Financial capitalism has driven profound changes in urban land use patterns in Majorca, at the Balearic Islands (Spain). This archipelago is a major tourist destination located in the Mediterranean basin, with 4,492 km 2 of surface area, 1,113,114 inhabitants and 12,316,399 tourists (2011), of whom 29.9% came from Germany, 24% from the UK and 19% from the rest of Spain. Neoliberal state regulation has favored the elite’s financial interests in the real estate sector through transport megaproject investment and lifting regional planning restrictions which prevented urban growth. Urban sprawl is becoming increasingly significant for inland Majorca, where intensive tourist resorts had not previously been developed. Urban growth distribution patterns are studied, firstly of suburban development both for tourists and for residential purposes, and secondly of exurban sprawl distribution for isolated dwellings. Recent regional planning relaxation guided by the free market economy and roll-with-it politics aims to promote this urban sprawl as a neoliberal answer to the current crisis of capitalism. In this way, a new model of capital investment in urban spatio-temporal fix, such as countryside villas with swimming pools, is shifting the urban model of this island. The paper identifies the site-specific spatial, temporal and planning pathways through which the actions and decisions of residential tourists and developers buying property in Majorca have driven urban sprawl and vice versa.
Valoración socioambiental de los recursos naturales: el caso de los recursos minerales en la parte central de Baja California Sur, México
Luis F. Beltrán Morales,Víctor Sevilla Unda,Macià Blázquez Salom,Federico Salinas Zavala
Investigaciones geográficas , 2005,
Abstract: Se seleccionaron 15 localidades ubicadas en el radio de influencia de dos depósitos evaluados de fosfato, esto con la finalidad de aplicar el método de valoración contingente del recurso y su medio ambiente: el depósito de Tembabichi en el margen del Golfo de California y el depósito de Santo Domingo en la costa del Pacífico en Baja California Sur, México. Se encontró una disposición media a pagar por los habitantes del área de estudio de $29.77 pesos mensuales para colaborar con el medio ambiente de su región. Hipotéticamente se daría una valoración contingente en el total del área de estudio de $227 859.58 pesos mensuales, es decir, $2 734 314.9 pesos anuales. Es una cantidad considerable de recursos para contribuir a mejoras en el medio ambiente por comunidades rurales con signos de marginación socioeconómica.

Investigaciones geográficas , 2005,
Abstract: 15 communities were selected in the influence area of two evaluated phosphate deposits in order to apply a contingent valuation of these mineral resources and its environment. the tembabichi deposit is in the east margin of the peninsula, at the gulf of california coast and the santo domingo deposit is in the pacific coast of baja california sur, mexico. the mean willingness to pay of the people of the studied area is of $29.77 monthly pesos, this, to collaborate with the improvement cautions of their environment. hypothetically a contingent valuation in the whole study area is of $227,859.58 monthly pesos, that is, $2,734,314.9 annual pesos. it is a considerable amount of money to contribute to improvements in the environment for rural communities in socioeconomic underdevelopment.
Physical factors, distribution and present land-use of terraces in the Tramuntana range
Grimalt Gelabert, M.,Blázquez Salom, M.,Rodríguez Gomila, R.
Pirineos : Revista de Ecología de Monta?a , 1992,
Abstract: We have studied the present-day spatial distribution of terraced lands and their current uses in the main mountainous area of the Mallorca island. A pattern of physical factors affecting the terraces has been established; the greatest significance belongs to lithology, slope and altitude. The process of land degradation and the transitional process of conversion to vegetation-covered land have been quantified. This conversion has affected up to 25 % of the terraced lands during the last 25 years. [es] Se estudia la distribución actual de los terrenos abancalados en la principal comarca monta osa de la isla de Mallorca, y se analizan sus usos actuales. Se establecen los factores físicos a los que se ajusta la distribución de las terrazas, entre los cuales destaca la influencia de la litología, la pendiente y la altitud. Se cuantifica el proceso de desaparición de esta forma de acondicionamiento del terreno y su transición hacia su conversión en sectores ocupados por vegetación natural, de modo que a lo largo de los últimos 25 a os en cerca de un 25% de los terrenos abancalados el aterrazamiento ha desaparecido. [fr] On a étudié la distribution actuelle des terrains aménagés en terrasses dans la principale contrée montagneuse de l'Ile de Majorque. On a analysé leurs usages actuels et on a établi les facteurs naturels qui ont déterminé la distribution en terrasses, facteurs parmi lesquels les plus importants sont la lithologie, la pente et l'altitude... On a quantifié le processus de disparition de cette forme d'aménagement du terrain et sa transition vers une transformation en secteurs occupés par la végétation naturelle. Ainsi au cours des 25 dernières années, cette disposition en terrasses a disparu dans presque 25% de ces terrains ainsi aménagés.
Assessing the Emergence of Resistance: The Absence of Biological Cost In Vivo May Compromise Fosfomycin Treatments for P. aeruginosa Infections
Alexandro Rodríguez-Rojas,María D. Maciá,Alejandro Couce,Cristina Gómez,Alfredo Casta?eda-García,Antonio Oliver,Jesús Blázquez
PLOS ONE , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0010193
Abstract: Fosfomycin is a cell wall inhibitor used efficiently to treat uncomplicated urinary tract and gastrointestinal infections. A very convenient feature of fosfomycin, among others, is that although the expected frequency of resistant mutants is high, the biological cost associated with mutation impedes an effective growth rate, and bacteria cannot offset the obstacles posed by host defenses or compete with sensitive bacteria. Due to the current scarcity of new antibiotics, fosfomycin has been proposed as an alternative treatment for other infections caused by a wide variety of bacteria, particularly Pseudomonas aeruginosa. However, whether fosfomycin resistance in P. aeruginosa provides a fitness cost still remains unknown.
Climate Change in La Plata Basin as Seen by a High-Resolution Global Model  [PDF]
Mario N. Nu?ez, Josefina Blázquez
Atmospheric and Climate Sciences (ACS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/acs.2014.42029

This paper analyses the climate change in La Plata Basin, one of the most important regions in South America due to its economy and population. For this work it has been used the Meteorological Research Institute (MRI) and the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) atmospheric global model. For both near and far future, the projected changes for temperature over the entire basin were positive, although they were only statistically significant at the end of the XXI century. Changes in the annual cycle of mean temperature were also positive in all subregions of the basin. Regarding precipitation, there were no changes in the near future that were statistically significant. The summer (winter) is the only season where both models project positive (negative) changes for both periods of the future. In the transitional seasons these changes vary depending on the spatial resolution model and the area of study. The annual cycle showed that the largest changes in precipitation (positive or negative) coincide with the rainy season of each subregion. Regarding the interannual variability of temperature, it was found that the 20 km. model pro-jected a decrease of this variability for both near and far future, especially in summer and autumn. On the other hand, the 60 km. ensemble model showed a decreased of year-to-year variability for summer and an increase in winter and spring. It was also found that both models project an increase in precipitation variability for winter and summer, while in other seasons, only the 60 km. ensemble model presents the mentioned behavior.

Blázquez, Gustavo;
Mana , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-93132012000100002
Abstract: the present article explores processes of state formation and government cultural policies in córdoba (argentina) during the first half of the 21st century. analyzing the cerimonies that attend the inauguration of art exhibits - vernissages - we discuss the performative dimensions of state practices that, in the name of culture, “make the state” through highly esteticized forms which appeal to the senses. in these performances, the state is materialized in two ways. the “magic of the state” occurs when interdependent relationships between agents appears and is institutionalized and also when na attractive image materializes that destined to reinforce this distinction as a resource for the production of hegemony.
De cara a la violencia: agresiones físicas y formas de clasificación social entre mujeres jóvenes de sectores populares en Argentina
Blázquez, Gustavo;
Sexualidad, Salud y Sociedad (Rio de Janeiro) , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1984-64872010000100002
Abstract: this article addresses the embodiment of gender and class, by analyzing a form of assault that involves face slashing among teenage women at public high schools across argentina. rather than explaining the meaning of such cruel acts, this is presented as an exhibition - both in the photographic sense and as a written claim submitted to an authority - alert to the subjective experience of pain by the victims.
Quién controla al control?
BLáZQUEZ, Miguel
Técnica Administrativa , 2006,
Abstract: Quién controla al control? Y a su vez se podría agregar al título del trabajo: quién es él que controla a este último? Pareciera ser una pregunta sin respuesta de tipo filosófico, al mejor estilo de Hamlet ser o no ser?. No obstante, lo que se pretende es poner de manifiesto la necesidad de conceptualizar al control desde una perspectiva de análisis diferente que tiene que ver justamente con la pregunta desarrollada. La intención es reflexionar sobre el concepto y las clasificaciones vigentes sobre el control. El objetivo del presente trabajo es analizar, en una primera etapa, el proceso administrativo desde una perspectiva metodológica y evolutiva, tratando de demostrar que si bien se trata de un modelo simplificado hoy debiera ser revisado atento a la complejidad que han adquirido las actuales organizaciones. Por eso cabe preguntarse cuál de los procesos, según los distintos autores, es el más adecuado? y cuáles son los fundamentos teóricos que los sustentan?. En igual sentido también debiera preguntarse cuáles fueron los criterios que asumieron los diferentes autores para proceder a modificarlos? En una segunda etapa se analiza en detalle la fase del control y la necesidad de establecer una nueva clasificación en función de las características que el mismo asume dentro del mencionado proceso administrativo. Es así como sin pretender agotar el debate se desarrolla una propuesta diferente, dejando de lado los enfoques normativos-prescriptivos que caracterizan la actual biblioteca de la administración sobre el mencionado tema.
