From novice to expert: agroecological competences of children orphaned by AIDS compared to non-orphans in Benin
Rose C Fagbemissi, Lisa L Price
Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine , 2011, DOI: 10.1186/1746-4269-7-4
Abstract: The research was carried out in rural Benin with 77 informants randomly selected according to their AIDS status: 13 affected and 13 non-affected adults; 13 paternal, 13 maternal and 13 double orphans; and 12 non-orphan children. Informants descriptions from pile sorting exercises of maize and cowpea pests were categorized and then aggregated into descriptions based form (morphology) and function (utility) and used to determine whether the moving from novice to expert is impaired by children orphaned by AIDS. Differences and similarities in responses were determined using the Fischer exact test and the Cochran-Mantzel-Haenszel test.No significant differences were found between AIDS affected and non-affected adults. Results of the study do reveal differences in the use of form and function descriptors among the children. There is a statistically significant difference in the use of form descriptors between one-parent orphans and non-orphans and in descriptors of specific damages to maize. One-parent paternal orphans were exactly like non-affected adults in their 50/50 balanced expertise in the use of both form and function descriptors. One-parent orphans also had the highest number of descriptors used by children overall and these descriptors are spread across the various aspects of the knowledge domain relative to non-orphans.Rather than a knowledge loss for one-parent orphans, particularly paternal orphans, we believe we are witnessing acceleration into adult knowledge frames. This expertise of one-parent orphans may be a result of a combination of factors deserving further investigation including enhanced hands-on work experience with the food crops in the field and the expertise available from the surviving parent coupled with the value of the food resource to the household.AIDS has created a new category of vulnerable rural African household because its impact reduces food production and livelihood viability and creates a spiral of food decline [1-3].

Paleopathology of the commoners at Tell Amarna, Egypt, Akhenaten's capital city
Rose, Jerome C;
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02762006001000013
Abstract: the egyptian pharaoh akhenaten initiated worship of a single god and established a new capital city (tell amarna) that was built and occupied only once from 1350-1330 bce. this single short occupation offers a unique opportunity to study a short time period. the royal tombs have long been known and studied, but the location of graves for the common inhabitants has been an archaeological puzzle for more than 50 years. recently four cemeteries have been located and the analysis of commingled bones from the south tombs cemetery is presented here. the remains yield the following demographic profile: 53 adults with 19 females and 18 males; 14 juveniles between the ages of 5 and 17; and 3 infants. arthritis and degenerative joint disease of the spine and joints indicates that djd was not excessive. only 2 to 8% of the adult population exhibits arthritis. there are 3 healed fractures of the arm (2 to 8% of the adult sample). there is 1 healed compressed fracture of the skull suggesting violence. the adult infection rate is between 2 and 8% with 3 healed and 1 active case of periostitis and no severe infections. anemia is implicated by 23% of adult frontals exhibiting cribra orbitalia. life for the common residents of amarna appears to not have been as good as initially postulated.
A hyperbolic approach to exp_3(S^1)
S. C. F. Rose
Mathematics , 2007,
Abstract: In this paper we investigate a new geometric method of studying exp_k(S^1), the set of all non-empty subsets of the circle of cardinality at most k. By considering the circle as the boundary of the hyperbolic plane we are able to use its group of isometries to determine explicitely the structure of its first few configuration spaces. We then study how these configuration spaces fit together in their union, exp_3(S^1), to reprove an old theorem of Bott as well as to offer a new proof (following that of E. Shchepin) of the fact that the embedding exp_1(S^1) into exp_3(S^1) is the trefoil knot.

Mathematics , 2008,
Abstract: In this paper we provide a computation of the mod 2 cohomology groups of the third finite subset space of the sphere $S^n$ using known results about the cohomology of the symmetric product of spheres.
Caring for Older Persons in a Technologically Advanced Nursing Future  [PDF]
Joseph Andrew Pepito, Rozzano C. Locsin, Rose E. Constantino
Health (Health) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/health.2019.115039
Abstract: As people live longer, a larger percentage will live with multiple chronic conditions and functional impairments such as difficulties with activities of daily living, mobility, and the management of one’s household. The purpose of this paper is to examine the care of older persons in a technologically advanced nursing future by discussing roles and responsibilities of nurses who practice gerontological nursing, and explaining how a technologically advanced future would change the delivery of home health care for older persons in the community. The theory of Technological Competency as Caring in Nursing grounds 3 processes of nursing as knowing persons as caring, wholeness is oneness, and caring as a multi-dimensional process. Harnessing technology for the health of older persons would enable them to live independently, socially engaged, and safely. A technologically advanced nursing future leads to concomitant sustainable disruptive and frugal innovations in healthcare. Nurses in practice must take advantage of these disruptions and consider frugal innovations as the futures of nursing education, practice, and research are here.
Endogenous Ranking in the Two-Sector Urn-Ball Matching Process  [PDF]
Giuseppe Rose
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.83024
Abstract: This paper contributes to the debate concerning micro-foundations of matching functions in frictional labor markets. The focus is on a particular matching regime, i.e., the so-called urn-ball process. It is shown that in a twosector economy, even in the presence of heterogeneous workers, the assumption of applicants-ranking may be misleading. Instead, the choice concerning the adoption of either ranking or no-ranking behavior is endogenous and it is affected by both the tightness of the two sectors and the composition of the labor force in terms of skills. Moreover it is proved that exogenous shocks may change the form of the matching function. This result casts additional doubts on the assumption of exogenous matching function often made in empirical works aimed at assessing the effectiveness of policy measures.
Maximizing the determinant for a special class of block-partitioned matrices
Otilia Popescu,Christopher Rose,Dimitrie C. Popescu
Mathematical Problems in Engineering , 2004, DOI: 10.1155/s1024123x04307027
Abstract: An analytical solution is found for the maximum determinant of a block-partitioned class of matrices with constant trace for each block. As an immediate application of this result, the maximum determinant of a sum of Kronecker products is derived.
Beliefs and Attitudes toward Vegetarian Lifestyle across Generations
Peter Pribis,Rose C Pencak,Tevni Grajales
Nutrients , 2010, DOI: 10.3390/nu2050523
Abstract: The objective of the study was to examine whether reasons to adopt vegetarian lifestyle differ significantly among generations. Using a Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ), we identified that 4% of the participants were vegans, 25% lacto-ovo-vegetarians, 4% pesco-vegetarians and 67% non-vegetarian. Younger people significantly agreed more with the moral reason and with the environmental reason. People ages 41–60 significantly agreed more with the health reason. There are significant differences across generations as to why people choose to live a vegetarian lifestyle.
Medida do grau de relacionamento entre estímulos equivalentes
Bortoloti, Renato;Rose, Júlio C. de;
Psicologia: Reflex?o e Crítica , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-79722007000200011
Abstract: there are methodological difficulties to quantify the relatedness of equivalent stimuli. the purpose of this study was to create an instrument that could be helpful in this process. two groups of college students took part in this study. the experimental group established equivalence classes comprised of abstract pictures and pictures of faces expressing anger, happiness and disgust. they then evaluated some of these pictures with a semantic differential. the control group used the same instrument in evaluating faces and figures, untrained in establishing relations between those stimuli. the control group assessed the figures as neutral and their assessment of the faces corresponded to that carried out by the participants of the experimental group - to them, the figures were equivalents to the faces. the comparison between the values attributed to the faces and figures provides a quantitative measurement of the degree of relatedness between those stimuli and that may be used to study parameters such as the number of nodes.
