Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.326111
Abstract: Creativity is conspicuously absent in the outcomes of liberal arts higher education institutions generally and Georgia College particularly. One strong candidate for rectifying this deficit is the incorporation of curriculum based on Kieran Egan’s theory of Imaginative Education (IE, 1988). There is a dearth of investigation as to how IE might be used in colleges and universities by faculty and students to allow the “the unusual and effective to flourish” (IERG, 2008). This paper presents a component of the work of one grass roots faculty development group as it learned about and sought to implement aspects of IE into their undergraduate curriculum and university culture.

Abstract: introduction: the impingement syndrome is an inflammatory and degenerative pathology that is characterized for mechanic impingement of definitive structures located in the umerocoracoacromial space of the joint. it is the most common problem of the escapular joint with superior prevalence in 40 and 50-year-old individuals, however, for being closely related to some labor and sport activities, it has become much more frequent in young adults. by means of the raised number of patients and with the intention to guide the large number of health professionals on the necessity of early treatment of the pathology, the aim of this study is to present the models of the impingement syndrome treatment and the physicaltherapy′s importance in the conservative treatment. metodologia: a scientific literature review was carried through with accessing the diverse literary reports on the subject and national and international articles search through the internet. results: the conservative treatment of the impingement syndrome involves a group of procedures to go through measures analgesic, anti-inflammatory and physiotherapy, being the last, indispensable tool in the recovery process. conclusion: to the end of the study it can be concluded that the conservative treatment is frequently used in the impingement syndrome treatment and that the physicaltherapy is the more indicated therapeutical modality, associated to a guided and re-education program about the activities that can make it difficult the process of full recovery. however, the treatment plan depends directly on the illness evolution phase, since in the case of failure of the conservative treatment, the surgery could be indicated.

Abstract: to overcome the limitations of the traditional product development process and reduce product development lead times, companies are adopting a new product development approach based on concurrent engineering and multifunctional teams. in theory, this new approach significantly changes the way product development work is organized, and involves teams from various functional areas who work in concert from the inception to the conclusion of the project. however, few studies have analyzed the scope of the changes this new product development approach has wrought in company practices. in this context, this paper describes how product development work is organized in companies and discusses the differences between actual practices and theory. to this end, two case studies were carried out at automakers, which revealed that multifunction teams and concurrent activities do not ensure the effective integration of functional areas. this survey also indicated that a relevant portion of new product development activities are still performed individually, notwithstanding the potential advantages of a more flexible and autonomous team work-based organization.

Abstract: Pertencente à família Papillomaviridae, o papilomavírus humano (HPV) é formado por um capsídeo e uma única fita dupla de DNA. Sua infec o ocorre principalmente por forma sexual, apresentando grande tropismo por células cutaneas e mucosas. OBJETIVO: Avaliar a presen a do HPV em mucosa oral de pacientes assintomáticos e em paralelo correlacionar os hábitos sociais comportamentais com a presen a viral. MATERIAL E MéTODO: Estudo de coorte contemporanea com corte transversal. O diagnóstico da presen a viral foi realizado por PCR, utilizando os primers gerais MY09/11 em 125 amostras de mucosa oral, submetidas à extra o de DNA e PCR para a pesquisa do gene da beta-globina para avalia o da qualidade do DNA extraído. Em paralelo, foi realizado um estudo de quest es comportamentais dos pacientes. RESULTADOS: Todas as amostras apresentaram o diagnóstico positivo para o gene da betaglobina. O HPV foi diagnosticado em 23,2% das amostras analisadas. CONCLUS O: O vírus esteve presente em 29 dos 125 pacientes, sem que estes apresentassem qualquer manifesta o clinicopatológica relacionada com o HPV. Quanto ao comportamento social dos pacientes, concluiu-se que a prática de sexo oral está correlacionada de forma estatisticamente significante com a presen a viral, além de o HPV ter sido estatisticamente mais prevalente em pacientes do sexo feminino. The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) belongs to the Papillomaviridae family and has a capsid and a single DNA strand. Its infection occurs mainly through sexual intercourse, having an important tropism for skin and mucosal cells. AIM: To evaluate the HPV presence in normal oral mucosa of asymptomatic subjects and; in parallel, to correlate social behavioral habits with the virus. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Contemporary cohort cross-sectional study. The HPV was found by PCR, using general primers MY09/11 in 125 oral mucosa samples submitted to DNA extraction and PCR to search for the beta-globin gene in order to assess the quality of the extracted DNA. In parallel, we carried out a study of behavioral issues associated with the patients. RESULTS: All the samples had a positive diagnosis of the beta-hemoglobin gene. HPV was diagnosed in 23.2% of the samples analyzed. CONCLUSION: The virus was present in 29 of the 125 patients, without them having any clinical-pathological manifestation associated with the HPV. As to the social behavior of the patients, we concluded that oral sex is statistically correlated to the virus, and besides the HPV has been statistically more present in female patients.

Abstract: a patient who had undergone nerve injury repair surgery of the right-hand 5th-finger flexor tendons and digital nerve was studied in order to assess the effects of a hand sensory reeducation program. the patient was evaluated before and after the three-month program application, as to: touch pressure threshold (by monofilaments); static and moving two-point discrimination; pinch strength; and answered the dash - disabilities of the arm, shoulder and hand - questionnaire. the proposed exercises involved static and moving touch discrimination, and recognition of different shapes, sizes and textures. the patient was also guided to do the exercises at home. after the three-month program, a pressure threshold reduction was noticed in the 5th-finger volar region, as well as a static two-point discrimination improvement in the same area. also, an increase of grip and pitch strength and a minor score in the dash questionnaire were found. results thus suggest that the sensorial reeducation program proposed may contribute to improving hand sensory function, bringing real benefits to the patient.

Abstract: the complex trans-[ru(no)(nh3)4{p(oet)3}](pf6)3 undergoes nucleophilic attack on the phosphorus ester ligand in the solid state yielding trans-[ru(no)(nh3)4{p(oh)(oet)2}](pf6)3. the reaction was monitored and the products analyzed using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31p{1h} cp-mas nmr and 31p{1h} nmr), infrared spectroscopy (ftir), electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy (epr), cyclic voltammetry (cv), electronic spectroscopy (uv-vis) and elemental analysis. according to experimental data and quantum mechanical calculations (dft), the reaction proceeds in the solid state by the nucleophilic attack on the phosphorus ligand, promoted by the strong polarization along the piii-ruii-no+ axis induced by the nitrosyl ligand, and takes place following the michaelis-arbusov type mechanism for phosphorus ester hydrolysis. in solution, the nucleophilic attack occurs simultaneously at the nitrosyl and triethylphosphite ligands, yielding trans-[ru(h2o)(nh3)4{p(oet)3}]2+ and trans-[ru(no)(h2o)(nh3)4]3+ in comparable amounts.

Abstract: drug resistance is one of the major concerns regarding tuberculosis (tb) infection worldwide because it hampers control of the disease. understanding the underlying mechanisms responsible for drug resistance development is of the highest importance. to investigate clinical data from drug-resistant tb patients at the tropical diseases hospital, goiás (go), brazil and to evaluate the molecular basis of rifampin (r) and isoniazid (h) resistance in mycobacterium tuberculosis. drug susceptibility testing was performed on 124 isolates from 100 patients and 24 isolates displayed resistance to r and/or h. molecular analysis of drug resistance was performed by partial sequencing of the rpob and katggenes and analysis of the inha promoter region. similarity analysis of isolates was performed by 15 loci mycobacterial interspersed repetitive unit-variable number tandem repeat (miru-vntr) typing. the molecular basis of drug resistance among the 24 isolates from 16 patients was confirmed in 18 isolates. different susceptibility profiles among the isolates from the same individual were observed in five patients; using miru-vntr, we have shown that those isolates were not genetically identical, with differences in one to three loci within the 15 analysed loci. drug-resistant tb in go is caused by m. tuberculosis strains with mutations in previously described sites of known genes and some patients harbour a mixed phenotype infection as a consequence of a single infective event; however, further and broader investigations are needed to support our findings.
