The Determinants of Forward-Looking Information in Management Commentary: Evidence from Italian Listed Companies
Elisa Menicucci
International Business Research , 2013, DOI: 10.5539/ibr.v6n5p30
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to assess the level of forward-looking information in Management Commentaries of Italian listed companies and to empirically explore the firm characteristics that may affect the extent of forward-looking information disclosed. A disclosure index composition consisting of 15 forward-looking information items is developed to investigate the level of forward-looking information in Management Commentaries of a sample of companies listed on Italian Stock Exchange for the year 2010. Using content analysis the study confirms that these companies are reluctant to provide forward-looking information in Management Commentaries. Three hypotheses are proposed and six models are tested within a regression analysis in order to explore the effect of three main variables (firm size, profitability and leverage) on forward-looking information. The results show that profitability has significant association with the level of specific types of forward-looking information. Conversely, firm size and leverage are found to be insignificant in explaining the level of forward-looking information.
Fórum: violência sexual e saúde. Introdu??o
Oliveira, Eleonora Menicucci de;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2007000200022
Abstract: this forum focuses on the health sector's response to sexual violence against women, analyzing the policies formulated by the brazilian ministry of health and the protocol in two academic health centers. the premise is that an approach to sexual violence requires the discussion of women's autonomy in relation to their bodies and thus their right to abortion. this intrinsic link between sexual violence and morally and politically loaded issues has contributed to the relatively slow response by the public health sector in brazil. however, the pioneering experience of two academic health centers in treating rape victims demonstrates the importance of these issues in the training of health professionals and the need to guarantee women's expanded and ongoing access to these services.
O feminismo desconstruindo e re-construindo o conhecimento
Oliveira, Eleonora Menicucci de;
Revista Estudos Feministas , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-026X2008000100021
Abstract: in this paper i briefly describe some examples of observations i made, while involved in a health care research project, of situations faced by women. the purpose of the exercise was to emphasize the need for an interaction(dialogue)between knowledge, health care practice and feminism. i also discuss some aspects of the interaction(dialogue) between epistemology and feminism in the light of the work of bachelard as opposed to the views of dorothy smith, alison jaggar, susan bordo, gayle rubin and teresita de barbieri. lastly, i attempt a synthesis of what i consider to be the major epistemological ruptures promoted by feminism concerning mainly language and work.

Temporal-mode continuous-variable cluster states using linear optics
Nicolas C. Menicucci
Physics , 2010, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.83.062314
Abstract: I present an extensible experimental design for optical continuous-variable cluster states of arbitrary size using four offline (vacuum) squeezers and six beamsplitters. This method has all the advantages of a temporal-mode encoding [Phys. Rev. Lett. 104, 250503], including finite requirements for coherence and stability even as the computation length increases indefinitely, with none of the difficulty of inline squeezing. The extensibility stems from a construction based on Gaussian projected entangled pair states (GPEPS). The potential for use of this design within a fully fault tolerant model is discussed.
O Sistema único de Saúde, 20 anos: balan?o e perspectivas
Menicucci, Telma Maria Gon?alves;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2009000700021
Abstract: this article reviews the strides and challenges of the brazilian unified national health system (sus), based on an assessment of the results achieved and the constraints for effective consolidation of it objectives. the article focuses on three issues: the process of implementing the sus, highlighting the institutional and political constraints, some of which as effects of previous policies; strides towards more accessible and comprehensive care, with an impact on some health indicators, and institutional innovations with positive impacts on the system's management; and challenges for consolidating the objectives, as a result of exogenous factors in relation to the sus, emphasizing the need for its politicization and greater legitimization.
Implementa??o da reforma sanitária: a forma??o de uma política
Menicucci, Telma Maria Gon?alves;
Saúde e Sociedade , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-12902006000200008
Abstract: this paper analyses the process of implementation of the health system reform in the 1990s. the starting point is the proposition that policy implementation is endowed with autonomy and involves decisions, apart from being a process of adaptation to changes in context; implementation requires governmental decision and initiative and tools to make it effective, among them the availability of financial resources and organized political support, especially from those groups that benefit more directly. the process of implementation of the health system reform was not simply a concrete translation of decisions, but also a process of health policy design. in it, the effects not only of adjustments in the political and economic contexts and of the reconfiguration of the public agenda, but mainly the feedback effects of previous health policies could be felt. the latter translated themselves into the absence of political support, underfinancing and the incapacity to create a public network of services. they acted as constraints to the full implementation of the reform, as it was conceived by its formulators. within these limits, crucial decisions were made, which redefined the reform, the most important being, on the one hand, the creation of a regulatory framework for private assistance that made the segmentation explicit, formally abandoning any universalistic intent, and, on the other hand, those related to financing, which still are an object of dispute. the result is the consolidation of a dualistic health system - public and private.
A política de saúde no governo Lula
Menicucci, Telma Maria Gon?alves;
Saúde e Sociedade , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-12902011000200022
Abstract: the essay reflects on the health policy implemented in the eight years of president lula's government, identifying a change of focus in the governmental agenda: from the exclusive emphasis on the gradual implementation of sus (brazil's national health system) in the first term of office to life conditions and health determinants in the second one. it argues that the health policies of a government cannot be evaluated only by a sectorial perspective; it is necessary to examine the government's steps, orientations and products that have repercussions on the population's health and on the organization of the services system. the central proposition is that lula's government was more innovative concerning interventions on health determinants than regarding the endogenous aspect of the health policy. in the sectorial scope, the progresses were incremental and qualitative, in the continuous and difficult process of implementing the principles of sus in a context of depoliticization of the health issue and of a debate focusing only on financing, without including in the public agenda the structural problems of the health system.
