The Applied Sociology of Tourism. The Up Skills of the Facilitator in the Italian Hospitality Industry  [PDF]
Nicolò Costa
Advances in Applied Sociology (AASoci) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/aasoci.2013.31001
Abstract: The sociology of tourism can be considered applied sociology. Therefore, it is necessary to ascertain the up skills of the sociologist in the process of tourism planning. The present paper refers to the idea of philosophic practitioner as a theoretical model and considers the sociologist as a facilitator of local tourism development. To this purpose, I discuss some topics and working tools that can be used when the sociologist is asked to help local stakeholders create significant involvement of the local community. In particular, I propose some self-assessment tools to be included in a tourism process centred on local participation. The paper focuses on fundamental questions concerning the techniques of bottom up regulation and the techniques to facilitate the passage from individualism to collaborative marketing in order to attract visitors suitable to the destination. The discussions are based inductively on tourism economic policies initiated inItalyto create collaboration between local institutions and enterprises aimed at integrating local resources (accommodation structures, transport, gastronomy, art and archaeology, etc.) and creating districts or systems of Made inItalyhospitality. The results indicate the sociologist of tourism as a facilitator of the collaborative partnership in support of the destination management. Many difficulties in creating tourism districts or systems are due to the absence of this type of professional figure.

Remembering Guido Martinotti as an Applied Sociologist to the Urban Mobilities and Local Community  [PDF]
Nicolò Costa
Advances in Applied Sociology (AASoci) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/aasoci.2015.51006
Abstract: Guido Martinotti (M) has been one of the most relevant representatives of the applied sociology in Italy. The paper explains the origins ad developments of his ideas and researches on the links between urban transformations, tourism/hospitality and human mobilities and the application to the reform of the Italian academic system with the introduction of new courses on tourism (1999-2001). M and John Urry (U) are the pioneers in the new intersectorial and interdisciplinary approach to the study of tourism included in the broader context of advanced-economy cities, of the cities of information flows, intense exchanges and accelerated mobilities. M stressed a new direction in planning the local community and “hospitable city” between urban marketing and bottom-up regulation. In 1999 he pushed for the bill dealing with the nascent specialist degree in “Planning and Management of Tourism Systems” to be discussed in the Italian parliament, which in 2001 passed Law 135 establishing “local tourist systems”. M constructed the degree “Tourist Sciences and Local Community” (University of Milano Bicocca) with an educational mix of territorial, social, economic, business, literary and technological disciplines.
Evidence on Night Movements of Macroinvertebrates to Macrophytes in a Pampean Stream  [PDF]
Nicolás Ferreiro
Open Journal of Modern Hydrology (OJMH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojmh.2014.43009
Nocturnal invertebrate abundance peaks in lotic systems are usually associated to drift, however, diel migrations other than drift may be important in slow-flowing systems. Then, macroinvertebrate distribution on macrophytes may change along the day as result of vertical or horizontal migration from sediments or the water column. My objective was to determine whether macroinvertebrate abundance on macrophytes changes along 24 h. Three Ceratophyllum demersum patches were sampled in late spring from the Las Flores stream (Central Argentina) at 11:20 h, 17:10 h, 23:00 h and 5:00 h. Macroinvertebrates were counted and identified, and relative abundances were estimated for each sampling time. The dominant groups of macroinvertebrates sampled were Oligochaeta, Amphipoda and Cladocera. The relative abundance of macroinvertebrates on macrophytes was the highest at 5:00 h, when dissolved oxygen in water reached its minimum. In conclusion, the abundance of macroinvertebrates on macrophytes in Pampean streams may increase at night, probably as result of nocturnal migration driven by changes in predation risk or dissolved oxygen.
Using the Ages and Stages Questionnaire to teach medical students developmental assessment: a descriptive analysis
Pam Nicol
BMC Medical Education , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6920-6-29
Abstract: To evaluate the program, an interpretative analysis was completed on the students' reports written during the program and a questionnaire was administered to the parents to gain their perception of the experience. As well, student confidence levels in assessing growth and development were measured at the end of the paediatric term.Although there was an increase in student confidence in developmental assessment at the end of the term, it was not statistically significant. However the findings indicated that students gained increased understanding of the process and enhanced recognition of the parental role, and the study suggested there was increased confidence in some students. Parents indicated that they thought they should be involved in the teaching of students.The ASQ was shown to have been useful in an education program at the level of advanced beginners in developmental assessment.Developmental assessment is a core learning outcome for paediatric and child health students, so when a survey of medical graduates' skills identified a lack of confidence in this area, a program was developed with the aims of increasing both confidence and respect for the parental role. This study evaluates that program.Paediatric and child health practitioners advocate a family-centred care model that requires practitioners to have good interpersonal skills, to have respect for parental judgement and to be flexible in their role [1]. As well, collaborative patient-centred practice is emerging as a framework for interdisciplinary education [2]. For these frameworks to be successful, interpersonal competence, which includes an appreciation of the skill and uniqueness of all individuals involved, is required [3]. The development of these attitudinal and communication attributes in health care practitioners is one of the challenges for health educators interested in family-centred practice.Medical student attitudes are important because they are viewed as a mediating link between clini

Abstract: oving clinical leadership and management in the NHS Review (2739) Total Article Views Authors: Nicol ED Published Date August 2012 Volume 2012:4 Pages 59 - 69 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JHL.S28298 Received: 24 April 2012 Accepted: 16 May 2012 Published: 08 August 2012 Edward D Nicol1,2 1Department of Cardiology, Royal Brompton Hospital and Harefield NHS Trust, London, United Kingdom; 2Clinical Leadership Academy, School of Medicine, Keele University, Staffordshire, United Kingdom Abstract: The National Health Service (NHS) is one of the UKs most cherished but political public institutions, providing healthcare, free at the point of delivery. The English NHS must make £20bn efficiency savings in the next 3 years whilst in the midst of fundamental structural change outlined in the government's Health and Social Care Bill. This paper will explore the history of leadership and management in the NHS; the evolution of clinical leadership; national strategies to improve NHS clinical and managerial leadership and Lord Darzi's pivotal NHS review. It defines the kind of leadership and management required for today's NHS, looking to overcome some of the main challenges such as improving healthcare quality whilst making efficiency savings and engaging grass roots workers to deliver sustainable, long term improvements. Finally this manuscript makes suggestions as to where future investment is required to improve clinical leadership and management in the NHS.

Su alcuni recipienti bronzei ad ansa sormontante di produzione capenate Bronze Vessels with Over Vase Looped Handle of Capenate Manufacture
Nicolò Donati
Lanx , 2012, DOI: 10.6092/2035-4797/2410
Abstract: Nel presente lavoro si è tentato di far chiarezza sulla particolare forma vascolare bronzea qui definita recipienti troncoconici ad ansa sormontante, ma spesso chiamata boccale, caccabus o cuccuma. Attraverso un’analisi della morfologia del vaso bronzeo si è proposta una destinazione d’uso per preparare infusi o salse o per il consumo di vino. L’analisi dei contesti ha permesso di orientare la datazione tra la metà del III e la metà del II secolo a.C., anche se permangono indizi che allargherebbero il limite superiore alla fine del IV secolo a.C. Il dato contestuale ha permesso anche di proporre come centro di produzione il sito di Capena, in quanto dei 67 esemplari individuati 31 provengono dalle necropoli locali. In the work presented we attempted to clarify the particular bronze vascular forms herein defined recipienti troncoconici ad ansa sormontante (“over vase loop handled frustoconical vessels”), often called mug, caccabus or kettle. Through a morphological analysis of the bronze vessel we proposed a hypothesized purpose of infusion or sauce preparation or a spiced wine container. The contextual analysis made it possible to date the articles between the mid-third and half of the second century BC, although some clues can extend the upper limit toward the end of the fourth century BC. The data context also allowed to suggest the site of Capena as production centre, since 31 of the 67 specimens come from the neighboring necropoles.
Il colore e le dissolvenze nella relazione terapeutica della nuova pedagogia
Nicolò Schepis
m@gm@ , 2002,
Abstract: Il vissuto d'ogni persona è una rete d'eventi, episodi talvolta collegati, sconnessi, nondimeno zuppi e imbrigliati d'emozioni all'interno di una semiologia di sensi e non soltanto di significati concettuali, ma di sfumature, dissolvenze congiunte a logiche esistenziali. Mi chiedo come può un terapeuta classico sbirciare dalla sua scrivania, dalla propria stanza in bianco e nero, o da un lettino d'ospedale la densità delle tinte che scalpitano fuori nella vita del paziente o utente: modulazioni di una cultura, un vociare di parole e sguardi, racconti, passioni, vicende, fratture, suoni e sfocature stratificate nella memoria; capire, insomma, quell'altro che confonde o che assimila ai riflessi del suo sapere.
