Patterns of Interpersonal Coordination in Rugby Union: Analysis of Collective Behaviours in a Match Situation  [PDF]
Marta Rodrigues, Pedro Passos
Advances in Physical Education (APE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ape.2013.34034
Abstract: This study aims to analyze how intra-team coordination patterns in the team sport of rugby union influenced successful performance. We hypothesized that high interpersonal coordination patterns are a crucial issue to cross (or not) the gain line. Video record and digitizing procedures were used as a method to collect data for further analysis of interpersonal coordination patterns that took place during the formation of subunits of attack. The results showed the existence of three types of outputs, which differ depending on the correlations between attackers and defenders. Therefore, for high and positive values of interpersonal coordination (r values between 0.8 < r < 1), there are possibilities of action that lead to success when the opponents have inverse or lower values of correlation. The conclusion was that interpersonal coordination within subunits becomes a relevant factor in analyzing the success in each game situation.
Photographic Image: Thematization of Its Discourses  [PDF]
Ricardo Crisafulli Rodrigues
Journal of Signal and Information Processing (JSIP) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jsip.2013.44053
Abstract: This paper deals with thematization as a fundamental step towards the determination of photography image discourses in order to index them. It deals with questions related to photographic reality, polysemy, denotation and connotation, whose comprehension is fundamentally important for the interpretation of photography discourses. It also approaches aspects that have influenced photography analysis towards its thematization, such as the characterization of an image bank, the functions performed by photos, as well as technical and visual quality.
Effect of Breed and Sex on Pork Meat Sensory Evaluation  [PDF]
Sandra Rodrigues, Alfredo Teixeira
Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2014.57070

This work had an objective to evaluate the sensory quality of two categories of pork meat from a commercial pork meat and a selected meat from the Portuguese black pork (Preto Alentejano breed). Sixteen animals were used, 8 females and 8 males from each breed. Animals had 80 - 100 kg of live weight. The longissimus muscle between the 5th thoracic vertebra and the 10th lumbar vertebra was used in the analysis. Sensory analysis was performed by a trained taste panel of 10 elements, in 5 sessions. All evaluation conditions were standardized, and the attributes studied were odor intensity, toughness, juiciness and flavor intensity. The taste panel found differences mainly between breeds. The panellists scored Preto Alentejano meat as being juicier, tenderer, and with richer taste than Commercial meat. The higher juiciness score of Preto Alentejano meat was probably attributable to the higher intramuscular fat content compared with Commercial meat. The Commercial pork was characterized mainly by high toughness.

Numerical Study of the Injection of Carbon Dioxide in a Homogeneous Porous Media  [PDF]
Luiz Umberto Rodrigues Sica
Open Journal of Fluid Dynamics (OJFD) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojfd.2018.81009
This work proposes a locally conservative and less restrictive algorithm to solve the problem dealt with in [1], i.e. a two-phase flow in a homogeneous porous medium (water and CO2), with mass absorption between the fluid phases and reaction between the CO2 phase and the rock. The latter is modeled by two non-linear hyperbolic equations that represent the transport of the flowing phases for a given velocity field (equations of saturation and concentration). From the numerical point of view, we use the operator splitting technique to properly treat the time scale of each physical phenomenon and a high-order non-oscillatory central-scheme finite volume method for nonlinear hyperbolic equations proposed by [2] that was extended for a system of equations with source terms to treat the equations that govern the saturation and concentration of phases. In addition, with respect to source terms, the mass flux between fluid phases was handled using the flash methodology, whereas kinetic theory was applied for reproducing the changes in porosity and permeability that are caused by the reaction of CO2 with the rock. The same physical trends observed in [1] were obtained in our numerical results which indicate a good predictive capability. Furthermore, this method avoids the difficulties that arise when adopting small time steps enforced by CFL stability restrictions. Finally, the results obtained show that the applicability of the KT method is beyond just a single nonlinear conservation law with the absence of source terms.
Megalithic Constructions Discovered in the Azores, Portugal  [PDF]
António Félix Rodrigues
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2015.32006
Abstract: The oldest cave art known is of prehistoric origin, dating back to approximately 40,000 years ago in both Asia and Europe. The megalithic constructions in Western Europe and the Mediterranean Region took place mainly in the Neolithic and continued until the Chalcolithic and Bronze Age. The Azores Islands did not seem to have been occupied before the arrival of the Portuguese navigators in the XVth century. Because of that, it was not expected that megalithic structures would be found, or structures that resembled megalithic tombs and rock art in the Azores Islands, geographically located in the Center of the North Atlantic, at 1500 km west of Lisbon (Portugal) and about 1900 km southeast of Newfoundland (Canada). These findings seem to be, historically, a paradox. In a first moment, an oral presentation was made about these findings by the author at the 16th Annual Mediterranean Studies Association Congress, and after that, a field trip took place with the archeologists present at the stated Congress. The perplexity was the dominant conduct of the guests, and some hypotheses that certain archaeologists mentioned were evolved versions which had not been empirically corroborated. Afterwards, new findings were registered at Grota do Medo site, helping to make clear that larger stones had been used to construct structures or monuments. The rock art surrounding the megalithic constructions in the Azores also has similarities with those found in Europe. If these findings belong to the Bronze Age or Iron Age, it can reopen new scientific questions about ancient mid-Atlantic crossings. The present article tries to establish ties among the megalith constructions found in the Azores with those known in Europe.
Diferen?a sexual, direitos e identidade: um debate a partir do pensamento da desconstru??o
Rodrigues, Carla;
Cadernos Pagu , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-83332010000100009
Abstract: the analysis of philosopher jacques derrida and his dialog with the philosophy of both heidegger and emmanuel levinas is the starting point for this paper, which presents a discussion about sexual difference, establishing a link between the issues of sexual difference and claim for women's rights as a way to overcome the hierarchy of gender, which is implicit in the feminine/masculine dualism and questioned by deconstruction. this paper attempts to show the possibilities of alliance between deconstruction and feminists theories.
Educa??o: da forma??o humana à constru??o do sujeito ético
Rodrigues, Neidson;
Educa??o & Sociedade , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-73302001000300013
Abstract: this text elaborates both a criticism and a proposal with regard to the educational issue. the critic denounces the consensual conception that ascribes the means and ends of education, as a whole, to the current educational processes. it highlights that such a conception hangs together the pragmatic, utilitarian vision prevailing in both the political and social order of the world, and the role assigned to school education: preparing learners to exercise their citizenship. it also explores - and denies - the close relationship between the attribute of citizen and individuals who take hold of knowledge and skills considered necessary to their integration as an efficient force within the productive sectors. this paper does not recognize access to knowledge and skills but as part of the human training process. as for its propositional aspect, it stresses the concept of education as the integral process of human training, since every newborn human being needs to receive a new condition in order to exist in the world of culture. this process includes the acquisition of products that are part of the civilizing heritage and have contributed to exceeding the limits of nature. among them are rational knowledge, which promoted the scientific and cultural development of manhood, and the conscience that each human being is the very producer of the reproduction conditions of his own life and of the social forms of its organization. the latter must be oriented by the principles of solidarity, recognition of the value of individualities, respect to differences, and by the discipline of wills. the human being, once he does not receive any determination by nature, may construct his own way of life on the bases of free will, autonomy to organize his manners of living and responsibility for the direction of his actions. this human feature constitutes the foundation of the ethical subject training, which has to be the essential objective of education, and to which whatever educational
Reformando o ensino de História: li??es de continuidade
Rodrigues, Elaine;
História (S?o Paulo) , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-90742004000200004
Abstract: the teaching of history and the problem of its contents' continuity are discussed. the theme was problematized at two important landmarks in brazilian history. whereas the aims of the discipline moral and civic education show the dictatorial period, the post-dictatorial one is characterized by the (re)birth of democracy. further, the political and pedagogical project of the state of paraná and its expectations in the teaching of history are provided. since our research is based on comparative analysis, results show that the idea that a chasm exists between the form and contents of the teaching of history is misleading. they rather indicate that it is the job of teachers committed to their country to transform it. the jornal de educa??o, the law that established the discipline moral and civic education, the pedagogical project and the basic school curriculum of the state of paraná have been used as first sources.
Migra??o transfronteiri?a na Venezuela
Rodrigues, Francilene;
Estudos Avan?ados , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40142006000200015
Abstract: border zones are zones of cultural lending, borrowing and appropriation, and, therefore, a privileged vantage point for understanding the phenomenon of international migration. this essay attempts to examine certain aspects of the transborder dislocation process in northern brazil (the city of pacaraima, state of roraima) and in southern venezuela (the city of gran sabana, state of bolívar), and point out its trends and reflections on the sociocultural makeup of those contact zones. in this brazil-venezuela border, the largest movement is clearly that of brazilians going into venezuela and guyana in search of job opportunities in mining, local business and transportation, not to mention illegal activities such as the traffic of women, fuel smuggling and illicit money exchange. yet a new trend is now emerging, namely, the immigration of foreigners from other south american countries, such as peru and colombia. these migrants cross over into neighboring countries following a route whose front door is venezuela, guyana and the brazilian state of amazonas.
Alimenta??o popular em S?o Paulo (1920 a 1950): políticas públicas, discursos técnicos e práticas profissionais
Rodrigues, Jaime;
Anais do Museu Paulista: História e Cultura Material , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-47142007000200019
Abstract: this article discusses how the concept of "lower-class eating habits" came about and developed in the intellectual circles of s?o paulo during the first half of the 20th century. it starts by reconstructing the elements of the debate around the income and ignorance of the underprivileged as the main reasons behind their bad eating habits. then, it looks at the focal points for interventions and public policies proposed by the government to deal with the problem thus identified, namely: training methods to produce sanitation counselors capable of offering dietary guidance as well; popular educational campaigns and new learning sites in addition to schools (e.g. healthcare centers and households); lunch and other means of offering food at schools; and diagnostic studies about food intake and eating habits among laborers. because they were translated into technical and scientific language, the proposals and policies implemented in s?o paulo left traces in a variety of supporting documents and media (photographs, primers, posters, inquiry notebooks, and academic literature).
