Confianza, capital social y desempe o de organizaciones
Sara Gordon R.
Revista mexicana de ciencias políticas y sociales , 2005,
Abstract: En el marco del análisis del capital social, el presente artículo aborda el tema de los criterios apropiados para evaluar el papel de la confianza en las asociaciones civiles. Propone dos niveles: por una parte, la capacidad de estas asociaciones de generar confianza interna con rasgos cívicos y de coadyuvar al desarrollo de confianza generalizada y de actitudes y conductas cívicas; por otra parte, reflexiona sobre la conveniencia de utilizar la distinción entre diversos tipos de confianza, a fin de establecer si alguno de ellos favorece más que otros la cooperación y un desempe o satisfactorio acorde con los objetivos fijados por esas asociaciones.
Uniplanar Nystagmus Associated with Perceptual and Cognitive Visual Dysfunction due to Presumed Focal Ischemic Occipital Cortical Atrophy: A Missed Diagnosis and New Observation
Swetha Sara Philip,Gordon N. Dutton,Liam Dorris
Case Reports in Pediatrics , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/159746
Abstract: Uniplanar nystagmus has been described in relation to pathology of the brain stem, retina, optic nerve, sensory visual deprivation, periventricular leucomalacia, and drug toxicity. This paper describes a case of uniplanar nystagmus associated with features of higher visual dysfunction and a presumed focal insult to the occipital lobes following an episode of neonatal apnea.
Uniplanar Nystagmus Associated with Perceptual and Cognitive Visual Dysfunction due to Presumed Focal Ischemic Occipital Cortical Atrophy: A Missed Diagnosis and New Observation
Swetha Sara Philip,Gordon N. Dutton,Liam Dorris
Case Reports in Pediatrics , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/159746
Abstract: Uniplanar nystagmus has been described in relation to pathology of the brain stem, retina, optic nerve, sensory visual deprivation, periventricular leucomalacia, and drug toxicity. This paper describes a case of uniplanar nystagmus associated with features of higher visual dysfunction and a presumed focal insult to the occipital lobes following an episode of neonatal apnea. 1. Introduction Uniplanar nystagmus (the pattern of which is in the same plane for each position of gaze) in children occurs in relation to idiopathic brain stem dysfunction [1], retinal disorders of both rods and cones, optic nerve hypoplasia, foveal hypoplasia (which may manifest in albinism), early onset sensory visual deprivation [2], periventricular leucomalacia [3] and drug (methadone) toxicity [4]. We report a case of uniplanar nystagmus associated with evidence of perceptual and cognitive visual dysfunction in a patient with presumed focal insult to the occipital lobes following one episode of neonatal apnea. 2. Case Report An 18-year-old girl with mild learning disability and poor vision was referred to the vision clinic in a tertiary care hospital. She had been born with no complications at 40-weeks gestation by spontaneous vaginal delivery. The pregnancy was uneventful. At two weeks of age, she had an apneic attack at home, possibly due to choking, and was resuscitated by the ambulance service after 10 minutes of cyanosis. Subsequently, she developed “congenital” nystagmus and maintained good health. She wore glasses for astigmatism. She was studying in mainstream school with the use of magnifiers, as she was having difficulty reading. At secondary school, she was given additional educational support on account of her visual difficulties. Her difficulties not only related to vision but also to her interpretation of the visual environment and this caused embarrassment and lack of confidence. On examination, her visual acuities were right eye 20/80 and left eye 20/60, and 20/40 binocularly for single letters (Snellen’s test type). For crowded letters, her binocular visual acuity was 20/80 and N18 for reading material. Extraocular movements were full. There was uniplanar (horizontal) manifest nystagmus with a diminished amplitude (or null point) on slight left gaze. Examination of the eyes was normal. Visual field examination proved difficult unless the patient was prompted, because peripheral visual inattention was evident. No colour vision deficit was identified. 2.1. Structured History Taking [5] Her mother described that, as a child, the patient bumped into obstacles and
Sustainability of Teachers' International Experiences: Conditions for Institutionalization of International Program Outcomes
Anatoli Rapoport
Education Research International , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/591276
Abstract: Since World War II international exchange and training programs for educators have increasingly played an important role in developing prospective consciousness and awareness of cultural diversity and global interdependence among teachers. However, international programs have always depended on extra educational factors such as political, ideological, cultural, or financial circumstances. As a result, program sustainability and proper institutionalization of program's results that are a testimony of achieved success, are both matters of concern for program developers and alumni. This paper identifies factors and contexts that facilitate sustainable development of international programs and institutionalization of their outcomes. Two cohorts of international teacher program alumni from Russia and the United States were interviewed about the impact of exchange programs on participants' status and pedagogies. The study demonstrated that respondents consider three factors, namely, motivational, administrative, and cooperative, most critical for the institutionalization of international program results.
Le go t et l’esprit de l’Exposition: les Spielmann et les Kiralfy
Michel Rapoport
Synergies Royaume-Uni et Irlande , 2009,
Abstract: Imre Kiralfy et Isidore Spielmann, tous deux issus de l’immigration juive d’Europe centrale, deviennent les ma tres de l’Exposition FrancoBritannique de 1908, symbole de l’Entente cordiale scellée en 1904. Kiralfy, fort de son expérience d’impresario et admirable homme d’affaires, avec l’exposition de Shepherd’s Bush, la White City, transforme l’esprit des expositions internationales, l’orientant vers la consommation de loisirs. Quant à Spielmann, qui a joué un r le clé dans l’organisation des expositions artistiques dans le cadre des expositions universelles et internationales, et qui est au c ur d’un réseau d’artistes et de collectionneurs, dans un esprit confrontation avec la France, il fait de la British Fine Art Section de la FrancoBritish, la vitrine de l’art britannique, le préraphaélisme étant présenté comme la force vitale de la peinture britannique d’alors et l’initiateur de l’impressionnisme. Kiralfy et Spielmann se rejoignent dans leur volonté de faire de cette exposition le lieu et le temps fort de l’exaltation de la grandeur de la Grande-Bretagne et de son Empire
The Penguin New Writing, Horizon et la France (1940-1945)
Michel Rapoport
Synergies Royaume-Uni et Irlande , 2009,
Abstract: L’entrée en guerre s’accompagne d’une mobilisation des intellectuels dont témoignent dès 1940 la naissance de nouvelles revues parmi lesquelles The Penguin New Writing de John Lehmann, dont le succès ne se dément pas durant toute la guerre, et Horizon de Cyril Connolly. La France est très présente dans ces deux revues, sous les formes les plus diverses, de la traduction de textes d’auteurs fran ais à des articles de critique en passant par des témoignages sur la situation de la France durant la guerre et à la Libération. Si les deux revues se livrent à une aimable concurrence, le contenu fran ais de The Penguin New Writing présente davantage d’homogénéité que celui d’Horizon caractérisé par son éclectisme. Mais l’une comme l’autre témoignent d’une francophilie évidente dans ces années noires et font découvrir aux Britanniques la vitalité créatrice de la France.
