áreas (des)protegidas do Brasil: as estancias hidrominerais

Abstract: abstract: the present paper discusses the vulnerability of brazilian spa towns that depend on the extraction of mineral water, given the expansion of the market for bottled mineral water. it shows how the isolation of these communities and their sources of mineral water, on the one side, and the brazilian environmental preservation policies (like the national water policy and the conservation units policy), on the other, place risks to the sustainability of water production, to tourism and to the standards of living achieved by the communities depending on the extraction of mineral water.
Homo sapiens, Homo demens e Homo degradandis: a psiquê humana e a crise ambiental

Abstract: this article discusses the environmental crisis through a dialogue between psychoanalysis, philosophy and the social sciences. it intends to introduce a common axis to the understanding of the relations between psyche and nature in a reflective text about human nature, its complexities and sociopathologies. the environmental crisis in which we are imbedded is approached through the followed propositions: (i) humanity has broken its links with its natural condition; (ii) humanity may be psychologically ill; (iii) humanity is not morally able to delegate the overcoming of the environmental crisis to the new generations because we live in a simulacrum associated with consumerism and alienation. we conclude that there is a subjective root in the environmental crisis, the analysis of which depends on finding the adequate answers to the civilization impasse that we currently face.

Abstract: Ongoing modernization in India has elevated the prevalence of many complex genetic diseases associated with a western lifestyle and diet to near-epidemic proportions. However, although India comprises more than one sixth of the world's human population, it has largely been omitted from genomic surveys that provide the backdrop for association studies of genetic disease. Here, by genotyping India-born individuals sampled in the United States, we carry out an extensive study of Indian genetic variation. We analyze 1,200 genome-wide polymorphisms in 432 individuals from 15 Indian populations. We find that populations from India, and populations from South Asia more generally, constitute one of the major human subgroups with increased similarity of genetic ancestry. However, only a relatively small amount of genetic differentiation exists among the Indian populations. Although caution is warranted due to the fact that United States–sampled Indian populations do not represent a random sample from India, these results suggest that the frequencies of many genetic variants are distinctive in India compared to other parts of the world and that the effects of population heterogeneity on the production of false positives in association studies may be smaller in Indians (and particularly in Indian-Americans) than might be expected for such a geographically and linguistically diverse subset of the human population.
