Translation Based Estimation Technique to Handle Occlusion While Using Mean-Shift in Tracking
A.H.M. Kamal,Montse Parada
Research Journal of Applied Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Detection of occlusion is a common problem in video surveillance field. When, moving objects overlap one another, an occlusion is created. It may happen very often in real life video. Many researchers have devoted their time to overcome that problem and have proposed many techniques. We propose here a blob translation based estimation technique to detect occlusion. We use the velocity, area and direction to do that.
Plant Ethnoveterinary Practices in Two Pyrenean Territories of Catalonia (Iberian Peninsula) and in Two Areas of the Balearic Islands and Comparison with Ethnobotanical Uses in Human Medicine
Esperan a Carrió,Montse Rigat,Teresa Garnatje,Marina Mayans,Montse Parada,Joan Vallès
Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/896295
Abstract: This paper presents the results of an ethnobotanical study centred in veterinarian uses in two Catalan Pyrenean regions (Alt Empordà -AE- and High River Ter Valley -AT-, Iberian peninsula) and two Balearic Islands areas (Formentera -FO- and northeastern Mallorca -MA-). In the areas studied, 97 plant species have been claimed to be useful for veterinary purposes. A total of 306 veterinary use reports have been gathered and analysed. The ten most reported plants are Tanacetum parthenium (24 use reports), Parietaria officinalis (15), Ranunculus parnassifolius (14), Meum athamanticum (13), Olea europaea (13), Quercus ilex (12), Ruta chalepensis (12), Sambucus nigra (10) and Thymus vulgaris (10). According to comprehensive reviews, a high number of novelties for plant ethnoveterinary are contributed: 34 species and one subspecies, 11 genera, and three families have not been reported in previous works in this field, and 21 species had only been mentioned once. Several ethnoveterinary uses are coincidental with those in human medicine. Although ethnoveterinary practices are less relevant than in the past in the territories considered, as in all industrialised countries, the knowledge on plant properties and applications is still rich and constitutes a large pool of evidence for phytotherapy, both in domestic animals and humans.

Asesorar es acompa ar
Montse Ventura
Abstract: El asesoramiento busca construir nuevos conocimientos y afrontar las necesidades de cambio de los equipos docentes a partir del estudio de las prácticas, de los sujetos y de las instituciones. Es una oportunidad para repensar la docencia a partir de sus propias experiencias y dejarse interrogar por las repercusiones la complejidad del mundo actual en la escuela. Desde esta mirada el asesoramiento abre la posibilidad de reflexionar las repercusiones de sus cambios como una forma de mejorar la escuela. Un trabajo de resignificación que permite pensar en prácticas docentes que integren nuevas culturas y narrativas.
Translation and Reliability of the Preliminary Spanish Version of the Sport Imagery Questionnaire  [PDF]
Montse C. Ruiz, Anthony P. Watt
Advances in Physical Education (APE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ape.2012.22013
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the reliability of the preliminary Spanish version of the Sport Imagery Questionnaire (SIQ). The SIQ was developed to examine five cognitive and motivational functions of imagery use. Participants were 81 athletes competing in soccer (n = 43) and roller skating (n = 38), ranging in age from 14 to 29 years (M = 18.10, SD = 3.16). Reliability was evaluated through internal consistency analyses of the scale. Cronbach’s alpha coefficients were high indicating that the scale is a reliable instrument for the measurement of imagery use in Spanish athletes. Further psychometric research should now examine factor structure and imagery use across competitive level and type of sport in a larger sample of Spanish athletes.
Claves de la evolución demográfica en el cambio de milenio
Solsona,Montse; Viciana,Francisco;
Gaceta Sanitaria , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0213-91112004000700004
Abstract: this article describes the main features of the dynamics of demographic change in the population of spain during the twentieth century, emphasizing the most recent developments: population ageing, the establishment of a very low fertility regime and the increasing importance of foreign immigration as well as the impact which all these have on the composition of households. those aspects most directly related to the provision of health and social services is discussed, such as the impact of increased life expectancy on the incidence of illness and handicap in the population, the role of foreign immigration in providing personal services within the family and the health implications of the new model of delayed fertility. finally, the health implications of population projections for the next 50 years are discussed.
Importancia de la participación laboral como determinante del divorcio en Espa a1
Carles Simó,Montse Solsona
Papeles de Geografía , 2003,
Abstract: El potencial de la información retrospectiva recogida en la Encuesta sobre Fecundidad y Familia (1995) nos ha animado a realizar una nueva exploración de la participación laboral como variable explicativa de la propensión a la ruptura de una unión en Espa a de las cohortes de unión de 1966 a 1999. Nuestro propósito es evaluar el poder predictivo relativo de esta variable en un modelo explicativo que incluye tres dimensiones: la socialización de los individuos, las características de la unión y los recursos educativos y profesionales. Los resultados son inequívocos, la participación laboral para las mujeres y la no participación para los hombres, se asocia positivamente con la ruptura de una unión. El efecto neto de esta variable, junto con la condición de ser cohabitante y la de haber crecido en una gran ciudad, presentan un alto poder predictivo en nuestro modelo de regresión exponencial de factores determinantes del divorcio en Espa a.
El cine a las puertas del siglo XXI: las imágenes apocalípticas del fin del mundo
Lic. Montse Hormigos Vaquero
Revista Latina de Comunicación Social , 1998,
Abstract: Se acerca el a o 2000: el 'fin del mundo'. Una gran cantidad de profecías así lo recogen y a lo largo de muchos a os se nos ha bombardeado con esta posibilidad de desaparición de la especie humana, tanto a través de medios escritos como audiovisuales. En la actualidad, se crean sectas que se preparan para el final, la televisión emite programas sobre desastres de diferente envergadura que potencian el desasosiego general, las publicaciones realizan encuestas del tipo: cómo cree usted que va a llegar el fin del mundo?, mientras las revistas especializadas publican estudios sobre la validez científica de esas creencias.
Re-writing and its pedagogical value: A case study
Montse Irun Chavarria
Sintagma : Revista de Lingüística , 2004,
Abstract: The research presented in this paper was designed to investigate the fact that, considering the large amount of time and energy teachers devote to the correction of compositions and written work, the effect of this effort on other student learning activities appears to be minimal. The results of this study seem to suggest that correction of this type does not facilitate language learning. The way in which this feedback activity is presented to the students and the status given to it within an approach to the process of writing are key aspects to making corrections helpful in the acquisition of writing skills.

Narrar la propia biografía después de un divorcio. Notas de un estudio cualitativo de interés para la demografía
Solsona i Pairó, Montse
Estudios Geográficos , 2009,
Abstract: In this article some outcomes of a qualitative study on the familiar trajectories that follow men and women who have experienced a break-up of union in which there were children are discussed. The design of the qualitative methodology is first presented before showing some results of the fieldwork done in metropolitan areas of Spain where the divorce has a greater intensity. The narrations of our biographers allow us to discuss the meaning of the family and the affective ties in the so-called liquid modern society and to review three basic concepts of the demographic analysis of the biographies of union ruptures: family, timing of the events and the determinant factors. En este artículo se discuten algunos resultados de un estudio cualitativo sobre las trayectorias familiares que siguen hombres y mujeres que han vivido una ruptura de una unión en la que hubo hijos. Primero se presenta el dise o de la metodología cualitativa y luego se ofrecen algunos resultados del trabajo de campo realizado en áreas metropolitanas de Espa a donde el divorcio tiene una intensidad mayor. Las narraciones de nuestros biógrafos y biógrafas permiten discutir a fondo el significado mutante de la familia y los vínculos afectivos en la llamada moderna sociedad líquida, y revisar de forma crítica tres conceptos básicos del análisis demográfico de las biografías de rupturas de unión: familia, la datación de los acontecimientos y los llamados factores determinantes. [fr] Dans cet article on discute quelques résultats d’une étude qualitative sur les trajectoires familiales qu’ils suivent des hommes et des femmes qui ont vécu une rupture d’une union dans laquelle il y a eu des enfants. On présente d’abord la conception de la méthodologie qualitative et on offre ensuite quelques résultats de la recherche effectué dans des secteurs métropolitains de l’Espagne où le divorce a une intensité plus grande. Les narrations de nos biographes permettent d’examiner en profondeur la signification mutant de la famille et les liens affectifs dans la moderne société liquide, et de réviser de manière critique trois concepts de base de l’analyse démographique des biographies de ruptures d’union: famille, datation des événements et facteurs déterminants.
