Abstract: Background: Stretching exercises and massage therapy are both suggested for pain relief in fibromyalgia syndrome. Previous studies have not proved their superiority over each other. This study compared the therapeutic effects of friction massage, stretching exercises, and analgesics on pain relief in patients with fibromyalgia syndrome.Methods: We evaluated 129 female patients with the diagnosis of primary fibromyalgia visited at the physical medicine clinics of Baqiyatallah Hospital in Tehran, Iran during 2010- 2011. Patients were randomly divided into three groups: the first group received 400 mg ibuprofen P.O. (3 times per day) and 25 mg nortriptyline (daily) P.O. as analgesic, the second group was treated by friction massage and the third group performed stretching exercises. Patients were assessed three times (initially, after one and four weeks) by visual analogue scale (VAS).Results: The mean age of participants was 60.46 years. The mean age in each treatment group was 46.66 years in medication group, 46.73 years in stretching group and 46.65 years in friction massage group. Changes in VAS score over 4 weeks were 2.4, 3.1 and 1.9, in the first, second, and third groups, respectively. The changes in VAS were significantly different in the first and second groups rather than the controls (P<0.05).Conclusion: The effect of stretch exercise on pain relief was similar to analgesics, but it was more effective than friction massage. Moreover, the therapeutic effect of stretching exercise on pain relief upon four weeks was more permanent than friction massage but it was similar to analgesics.
Seizure precipitated during long haul flight
AR Devkota,AR Karki
Journal of Institute of Medicine , 2010, DOI: 10.3126/joim.v32i3.4962
Abstract: We report three diagnosed cases of epilepsy under medication that were on long haul flight from Kathmandu to different destinations in USA with different clinical outcomes during flight. The first case had brief seizure like episode during flight and was given oral benzodiazepine. The second case was put on prophylactic oral benzodiazepine to induce sleep and reduce seizure threshold and had an uneventful flight. The third case developed generalized tonic clonic seizure and was managed accordingly. Key words: Epilepsy; long haul flight; seizure.

Economic Analysis of Biodiesel and Glycerol Carbonate Production Plant by Glycerolysis  [PDF]
Nghi Nguyen, Ya?ar Demirel
Journal of Sustainable Bioenergy Systems (JSBS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jsbs.2013.33029
Abstract: Techno-economic analysis of an indirect use of carbon dioxide within the route of glycerolysis of glycerol with urea is investigated. The results show that the net present value of the biodiesel-glycerol carbonate production by glycerolysis is higher than the biodiesel-glycerol carbonate production by direct carboxylationat at the end of the 12-year operation with similar capacities. The stochastic model has predicted that using glycerolysis route for the synthesis of glycerol carbonate production might increase the probability of getting positive net present value by about 15%.
Crisis and Social Security in Spain  [PDF]
Arántzazu Vicente-Palacio
Beijing Law Review (BLR) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/blr.2015.64024
Abstract: This paper outlines the latest reforms introduced into the Social Security System’s protective actions in order to deduce whether such intense changes allow us to conclude that a Social Security crisis exists. This concept is understood from the perspective of the Social Security being capable, or not, of undertaking its historical mission. This work takes into account the legislative reforms made to Social Security, along with the changes that are taking place, in the form of providing services in the new post-capitalist society.

A comédia no romantismo brasileiro: Martins Pena e Joaquim Manuel de Macedo
Arêas, Vilma;
Novos Estudos - CEBRAP , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-33002006000300010
Abstract: the article analyses the comedy produced during brazilian romanticist period taking the work of martins pena and joaquim manuel de macedo as a guideline. it states that pena, taking advantage of other genres, founded comedy of manners in brazil, whereas macedo is understood against the framework of the transformations of dramatic language. comedy is analyzed here in relation to its instability of form and the tension between european ideals and brazilian political environment.

Abstract: a literary anlysis of mário de andrade's short story "atrás da catedral de ru?o", its parallels with the modernist brazilian writer's novel amar, verbo intransitivo and the themes of passion, desire and repression.
Profits and social performance of small-scale fishing in the Upper Paraná River floodplain (Brazil)
Carvalho, AR.;
Brazilian Journal of Biology , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S1519-69842008000100012
Abstract: small scale fishing profits in two communities in the upper paraná river floodplain (porto rico - pri and porto s?o josé - psj villages) are assessed based on interviews carried out with professional fishermen. there is a high illiteracy level in both pri (50%) and psj (44.5%). the main contributions to income are "vessel costs" and "fish consumption" by the family. specific tackle (such as cevadeira) and gear used for fishing close to dams make the gear costs higher at psj, emphasising the heterogeneity of the activity. the majority of fishermen in both villages have income complementation activities associated with tourism, because floodplain fishing is not a profitable occupation with any poverty alleviation capacity. since the ecosystem is seriously disrupted, nowadays fishers are vulnerable to high oscillations in costs and income due to uncertainty in catches aggravated by flood control of the dams.
An ecological economics approach to estimate the value of a fragmented wetland in Brazil (Mato Grosso do Sul state)
Carvalho, AR.;
Brazilian Journal of Biology , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S1519-69842007000400011
Abstract: the upper paraná river floodplain is the last lotic stretch of an ecosystem seriously threatened given that circa 50% of the original ecosystem has been converted into reservoirs. to assess the recreational value of the upper paraná river floodplain, 174 tourists were interviewed using the willingness to pay - wtp and travel cost - tc methods. the annual aggregated wtp attributed by tourists was us$ 122.50 million and the variables which determine the decision in willingness to pay for the floodplain are: 'consider oneself as a floodplain natural resources consumer' and 'marital state'. if the single person considers her/himself as a consumer of floodplain natural resources, the wtp increases by a multiplicative factor of 38.8. the value aggregated by the tc method was us$ 234 millions and decreased by zone as the distance increases. higher income and traveling farther increases the travel cost, which is inversely related to annual trip frequency. the total recreational value (356.5 millions per year) is high and representative since it refers to an environment fragmented by dams and with many anthropogenic effects. therefore, the progressive changes on the landscape are a threat to local tourism, since half of the visitors are attracted solely by the scenic beauty, thereby overtaking those factors considered more important by public decision makers and managers, such as recreational fishery or boating.
’n Narratiewe benadering tot die pastoraat: Kritiese opmerkings na aanleiding van die huidige teologiese debat
AR Brunsdon
Acta Theologica , 2010,
Abstract: Theology in the South African context finds itself in turmoil. At the heart of this theological storm lies the diversity among theologians about how the Word of God should be proclaimed in the postmodern era, as postmodernism poses a challenge to all sciences to re-formulate their claims. So far, the pastorate has met this challenge by making use of the so-called narrative approach to therapy. Specific attention to the narrative approach shows that it operates from a postmodernist epistemology where truth becomes relational and socially constructed. The critical question stemming from this, however, is whether pastoral theology can make use of the narrative approach and still claim theological validity. Pastoral theologians are heeded to proceed with caution during this period of theological turmoil to avoid the pitfalls of either fundamentalism or liberalism.
