Abstract: A constru o de uma rodovia pode interferir na dinamica urbana na medida em que transforma o uso da terra nas suas proximidades. O trecho oeste do eixo viário Rodoanel Mario Covas na RMSP, nos bairros Perus e Jaraguá na cidade de S o Paulo, foi estudado por meio da caracteriza o do uso da terra em seu entorno. Para tanto foi realizado um levantamento de informa es com trabalhos de campo e foram utilizadas técnicas de sensoriamento remoto para o mapeamento. Em um Sistema de Informa es Geográficas foram feitos dois tipos de classifica o digital, a analógica e a automática, em uma imagem de alta resolu o (IKONOS do ano de 2002) e em fotografias aéreas do ano de 1994. Pela análise comparativa observou-se que a classifica o analógica foi a mais adequada para a análise temporal, pois permitiu a elabora o de mapas temáticos e melhor visualiza o dos resultados. Com a análise quantitativa das classes geradas e trabalhadas, concluiu-se que,do ano de 1994 ao ano de 2002, a área verde densa aumentou, a área de gramínea e árvores esparsas diminuiu, a área de solo exposto diminuiu e a área construída aumentou. Os resultados foram organizados em mapas temáticos ilustrando a análise temporal realizada. Abstract: The construction of a highway may interfere with urban dynamics when transform the land use around it. The western section of the road axles Mario Covas in the Metropolitan area of Sao Paulo in the neighborhoods of Perus and Jaragua in S o Paulo city was studied with the characterization of the use and occupation of land around it. We did a survey of information with field work and were used remote sensing techniques for mapping. In a GIS have been made both types of digital classification, an analog and a automatic, a high resolution (IKONOS of 2002) and aerial photographs of 1994. For the comparative analysis showed that the classification analog was the most suitable for temporal analysis, because it allowed the preparation of thematic maps and better visualization of the results. With the quantitative analysis of the generate classes and worked, it was concluded, it was concluded that, in the year 1994 to 2002, the dense green area increased, the área of grass and scattered trees fell, the area of bare ground decreased, the built área increased. The results were organized in thematic maps showed the temporal analysis. DOI: 10.7154/RDG.2011.0021.0002

El clima urbano de ciudades subtropicales costeras atlánticas: el caso de la conurbación de Florianópolis
Magaly Mendon?a,Magda A. Lombardo
Revista de Geografía, Norte Grande , 2009,
Abstract: Este estudio del clima de la conurbación de Florianópolis demuestra la influencia simultánea de los factores geoecológicos y de la urbanización sobre la variación espacio-temporal de la temperatura y otros elementos climáticos. Se levantaron datos meteorológicos en varias localidades, en horarios sinópticos y en diferentes tipos de tiempo, utilizando un termo hidrógrafo digital y observaciones visuales. Los mapas de gradiente de temperatura, referidos a datos de la estación del aeropuerto, demostraron una significativa conservación térmica en los locales ocupados por construcciones verticales, de alta densidad e intenso tráfico. No se observó la formación de una isla de calor continua, sino que un archipiélago, debido tanto al carácter multinuclear de la urbanización como a la compartimentalización morfológica de los sitios. Las islas de calor más intensas se registraron en el sector central de la región, bajo dominio polar y en situaciones de transición y prefrontal. Estos resultados pueden ser importantes para la evaluación de la calidad ambiental, formando parte de los diagnósticos necesarios para el planeamiento urbano.
Assessment of strategic management practice of malaria control in the dangme west district, GhanaArticle submitted to the west african college of nursing for the award of a fellow  [PDF]

Health (Health) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/health.2011.36059
Abstract: Strategic management (SM) practice was as-sessed in all HCFs both in the public and private and some chemical shops within the Dangme West district using semi-structured question-naires. In-depth interviews were carried out with healthcare managers in their clinical setting. The study utilized both qualitative and quantitative methods in describing the SM practice. Healthcare managers were using all the elements of SM in the management of malaria but these were not holistically coordinated. Present were short ranged informal planning based on the objectives of NMCP and day-to-day operation of the HCFs especially with Ghana Health Service facilities. Due to homogenous nature of Dangme West district, management of culture wasn’t given much attention by healthcare managers though healthcare providers were acutely aware of its importance to quality service delivery. Competition was woefully absent in the healthcare environment. No formal structure has been created for the management of malaria control activities with the exception of the involvement of Community Based agents. The district was widely implementing all the strategies of the NMCP with favourable outcomes.
Moral Judgment: Truth, Order and Consequence  [PDF]

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2015.65061
Abstract: Often we make snap moral judgments based on limited information. For instance upon reading a newspaper headline we very quickly decide on whether the implied outcome is good or bad. However, in situations like this we are also likely to revise our judgments when we read the main story and the conclusion of the article. One question yet to be answered is whether we adjust our moral judgments in a systematic way as we gain more details about a moral scenario. Two experiments (lab-based, online) addressed this question along with the influence of other factors on moral judgments (the origin of the moral scenario, the severity of the consequence of the scenario). Across both experiments, moral judgments were: 1) generally adjusted downwards as more information was presented; 2) more severe for headlines than the main story or the conclusion; 3) more severe for scenarios that were fabricated than real life stories; 4) more severe when the conclusion involved a severe consequence than a non-severe consequence.
Dynamic Moral Judgments and Emotions  [PDF]

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2015.68090
Abstract: We may experience strong moral outrage when we read a news headline that describes a prohibited action, but when we gain additional information by reading the main news story, do our emotional experiences change at all, and if they do in what way do they change? In a single online study with 80 participants the aim was to examine the extent to which emotional experiences (disgust, anger) and moral judgments track changes in information about a moral scenario. The evidence from the present study suggests that we systematically adjust our moral judgments and our emotional experiences as a result of exposure to further information about the morally dubious action referred to in a moral scenario. More specifically, the way in which we adjust our moral judgments and emotions appears to be based on information signalling whether a morally dubious act is permitted or prohibited.
Behavioral Economics: Where Is It Heading?  [PDF]

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2015.69109
Abstract: The addition of “behavioral” to economics has given rise to a highly successful field of research. But, is it just a fashionable new trend or is it here to stay? More to the point, how does it differ from its close relative psychology? To answer these questions, the present article considers what behavioral economics is, and where it started, with the aim of trying to forecast what the status of it will be in the future. In forecasting where behavioral economics might be heading, the argument proposed here is that the best clues can be found in psychological research. If, as has been proposed here, behavioral economics partners research trends in psychology, then the futures of both will almost certainly be moving in the same direction. Both are beginning to, and will start to rely on online tools/mobile phone applications to collect richer data revealing dynamic tends over long time horizons, and as technology continues to facilitate ways of looking at group behaviour online, then larger scale studies examining interactions amongst multiple groups of people will become the norm rather than the exception. More specifically this article speculates on the future research focus of researchers in behavioral economics and the extent to which this will overlap with psychological research on judgment and decision-making.
The Effect of Rainfall Characteristics and Tillage on Sheet Erosion and Maize Grain Yield in Semiarid Conditions and Granitic Sandy Soils of Zimbabwe

Applied and Environmental Soil Science , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/243815
Abstract: In semiarid regions, rainfall is one of the primary factors affecting soil erosion and crop production under rain-fed agriculture. The study sought to quantify the effect of rainfall characteristics on sheet erosion and maize grain yield under different tillage systems. It was carried out under semiarid conditions and infertile sandy soils of Zimbabwe. Rainfall amount and intensity were recorded every 24 hours, while sheet erosion was measured from four tillage systems (Conventional Tillage (CT), Mulch Ripping (MR), Tied Ridging (TR) and Bare Fallow (BF)). Maize (Zea mays L.) was grown on three tillage systems (CT, MR, and TR). Rainfall amount varied significantly ( ) between seasons (164–994?mm). CT recorded the highest average soil losses (15?t/ha), while MR and TR recorded 1.3 and 1.2?t/ha, respectively. Maize grain yields increased with increasing seasonal rainfall giving yield-responses of 0.9?t/ha (TR) to 1.3?t/ha (MR) for every 100?mm rainfall increment. Overall, treatments didnot differ significantly ( ), except during drier seasons ( ). Regression equations showed that yields can be confidently predicted using rainfall amount and time, with values of 0.82 to 0.94. Maize grain yields proved to be mostly dependent on rainfall amount than fertility. The productivity of the soils decreased with increased length of cultivation. 1. Introduction Rill and gully erosion in the smallholder areas of Zimbabwe is largely under control through mechanical conservation structures such as contour ridges, grassed waterways, and storm drains [1]. However, sheet erosion is still a major threat to soil fertility and productivity. The sheet erosion process is selective and deprives the soil of its fine particles (clay and organic matter) [2]. These particles are easily splashed out and carried in suspension, while the heavier particles remain behind [3–5]. The soils are thus impoverished as these nutrient reservoirs are lost together with inherent and applied plant nutrients. The bulk density of the soils is increased and plant available water is decreased. According to Stocking and Peake [6], the changes in soil conditions, in many cases, may be describing the effect of erosion induced low soil productivity. In soil erosion research, rainfall amount and intensity (erosive power of rainfall) have been found to be the fundamental factors affecting soil erosion [7, 8]. The impact of raindrops on the soil surface results in temporary capping of the soil and lowered infiltration rate, thus generating runoff [9–11]. Runoff is directly dependent on rainfall amount and
