Abstract: About 25% of the Brazilian population have some kind of deficiency, among them 50% are mental. Brazilian situation isaggravated due to poverty conditions, misery, malnutrition, need of basic sanitation, disinformation, and precarious healthattendance. It is esteem that 350 million people with deficiency are excluded of any kind of medical attendance. For themaintenance of a person that carries a deficiency, 12,452 dollars are spent annually. On the other hand, “per capita” annual costof primary prevention is 20 dollars and of secondary prevention is 600 dollars. Population does not have access to informationabout causes, prevention and deficient child attendance and demonstrates wrong information, superstition and fears about thissubject. Thus, this study aimed to detect factors that may contribute with the improvement of preventive actions. Data obtainedfrom studies carried out with 100 APAE Scholl students in Campo Mour o allowed to analyze some common characteristicsabout them. One of these characteristics was that from all of 100 students under analysis, 52 had relatives with some kind ofmental, sensorial or additive deficiency. According to this index it is possible to conclude that people that have relatives withsome kind of deficiency also have great probabilities of generate children with deficiencies.

Abstract: Atherosclerosis or arterial stiffening is a gradual disease that restricts the normal blood flow in different areas of body and maylead to secondary illnesses as myocardial infarction and cerebral stroke. Innumerable factors are related to the development ofatherosclerosis, among them are the dyslipidemia; genetic factors; arterial hypertension; diabetes mellitus; obesity; smoking;lack of exercise; pulmonary infection by Chlamydia and stress. Due to multi-factorial atherosclerosis characteristics,innumerable drugs, with differentiated mechanisms of action, are being elaborated to be used in prevention and control of thisdisease. However, beyond the pharmacological therapy, a balanced diet, physical activity and elimination of risk habits, assmoking, also are need for controlling atherosclerosis progression, as well as for the increase of expectative and quality of life

Abstract: Florida International University has undergone a reform in the introductory physics classes by focusing on the laboratory component of these classes. We present results from the secondary implementation of two research-based instructional strategies: the implementation of the Learning Assistant model as developed by the University of Colorado at Boulder and the Open Source Tutorial curriculum developed at the University of Maryland, College Park. We examine the results of the Force Concept Inventory (FCI) for introductory students over five years (n=872) and find that the mean raw gain of students in transformed lab sections was 0.243, while the mean raw gain of the traditional labs was 0.159, with a Cohen’s d effect size of 0.59. Average raw gains on the FCI were 0.243 for Hispanic students and 0.213 for women in the transformed labs, indicating that these reforms are not widening the gaps between underrepresented student groups and majority groups. Our results illustrate how research-based instructional strategies can be successfully implemented in a physics department with minimal department engagement and in a sustainable manner.

Abstract: Introduction: The frontal osteomyelitis is a complication of rhinosinusitis which can evolve to acute or chronicle. There is inflammatory reaction by the increasing of intraosseous pressure, ischemia and local necrosis, leading to bone abscess formation. There is no drainage, it will occur detachment of the periosteum, soft tissue invasion and worsening of ischemia with subsequent bone sequestration. Method: Case report of an inpatient in an emergency service of another institution by the complication of rhinosinusitis who was referred to the Otorhinolaryngology Service of University Hospital Professor Edgard Santos of Federal University of Bahia. Case Report: Male patient, 16 years-old, presented himself to the ER of another institution with cephalea, vomits and fever which evolved to periorbital edema and frontal to the left, moving to palpebral fluctuation and frontal. Subjected to frontal and palpebral abscess drainage, with broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy with no improvement. He was referred to our service keeping edema and fluctuation in region frontal and light edema in left periorbital region. The nasal endoscopy showed edema in meatus to the left and the computerized tomography showed fronto-ethmoid sinusitis to the left and signs of frontal osteomyelitis with bone sequestration and epidural empyema. Subjected to sinasal endoscopy surgery, external Access or removal of the frontal one affected and epidural empyema drainage. Evolved to the remission of the disease. Final Considerations: Failure in the diagnosis and rhinosinusitis complication treatment can lead to sequalae and fatal complications. The diagnosis of the frontal osteomyelitis is confirmed by the clinical suspicion and confirmed by radiological examination. The surgery is indicated when the evolution is insidious, there is bone sequestration and intracranial complications.

Abstract: The Soil is the natural substrate for the large part of global biodiversity and is among the most biologically rich habitats and species on the planet. Soil organisms perform numerous functions essential to the biofunctional soil and for this reason, it becomes important to characterize them and to know which are the most important factors affecting the distribution of the communities that inhabit the soil-litter system. The soil organisms play an important role in the identification of soil quality; they work on processing of organic matter, nutrient cycling and exchange interactions with most plant species. These organisms are affected by factors such as temperature, moisture, texture, porosity, among others. Many soil organisms prefer moist environments and the presence of clay can provide high capacity for water retention in soil. O solo é o substrato natural para grande parte da biodiversidade global e está entre os mais biologicamente ricos em habitats e espécies do planeta. Os organismos do solo exercem inúmeras fun es essenciais para o biofuncionamento dos solos e por esta raz o, torna-se importante caracterizá-los e conhecer quais s o os fatores que mais afetam a distribui o das comunidades que habitam o sistema solo-serapilheira. Os organismos edáficos têm papel importante na identifica o da qualidade do solo, por atuarem nos processos de transforma o da matéria organica, ciclagem de nutrientes e intera es de troca com a maioria das espécies de plantas. Estes organismos s o afetados por fatores como temperatura, umidade, textura, porosidade, entre outros. Muitos dos organismos do solo preferem ambientes úmidos e a presen a de argila pode assegurar elevada capacidade de reten o de água no solo
