Veiga,Danilo;
EURE (Santiago) , 1999, DOI: 10.4067/S0250-71611999007400005
Abstract: this paper presents hypotheses and research findings from projects developed at the sociology department at the university of the republic of uruguay. its main objective is to introduce some emerging research topics in a relevant field of analysis for the social sciences. based on two case studies -colonia and maldonado-, the author analyses the socioeconomic characteristics and local development patterns of these dynamic communities, which given its insertion in the context of reestructuring and globalization, are subject to different impacts. on this regard, it is expected to contribute to a better understanding of local processes, particularly with reference to several dimensions of globalization and regional integration. the author analyses the socioeconomic and territorial changes; the prospective alternatives of development for local societies; the images and expectations of the population concerning the regional integration and the "emerging social issues" in the context of globalization
Behavior and political values of voters
Luciana Veiga
Revista Compolítica , 2011,
Abstract: Scholars (see Dalton, 2002) have pointed to the growth of two types of voters in recent decades: the nonpartisan voter, cognitively sophisticated and mobilized over the issue of politics; and the partisan voter, who do not possesses a lot of cognitive resources and information on political affairs. These profiles contradict the descriptions of partisan and non-partisan voters of the sixties (Campbell, 1960). Thus we seek to apply the typology inspired by Dalton (2008), which classifies the voters according to two variables: party preference and cognitive sophistication on matters of policy. From analysis of surveys of the Brazilian Electoral Study, conducted in 2002 and 2006, this paper intents to ascertain whether the four types of voters differ in procedures of choice and in values involved in the making of their choices (ideological identification and party preference, degree of satisfaction with governments and evaluation of the image of politicians). The results show that there are some similarities regarding the procedures of choice: all the interviewed said that, in order to formulate their decision, they prioritize, firstly, issues and proposals; secondly, the past and the image of politicians; and, finally, the candidate’s party. There are many differences on the evaluation of government and mainly on the evaluation of the image of candidate Lula.
NEOLIBERALISM, TECHNOCRACY AND NATIONAL ISLAMISM: THE GüLEN MOVEMENT
Francisco Veiga
Revista CIDOB d'Afers Internacionals , 2011,
Abstract: What has become known as the Gülen movement has grown considerably over the past 20 years. Defined as a transnational movement to help civil society, it is based on the ideas of the Muslim theologist Fethullah Gülen, who is of Turkish nationality. His work in the community (which has its nucleus in Turkey) has spread as far as Central Asia, the Far East, North and South America, the Balkans and even to some countries in Africa. On one hand, it forms part of the phenomenon of the neo-brotherhoods inspired by Sufism, but on the other, because of the nationalist and neoliberal ideology it champions, it is linked with the main tendencies of “national Islam” that opposes radical “internationalist Islamism”.
Las sociedades locales en el contexto de la globalización: estudio de casos en Uruguay
Danilo Veiga
EURE (Santiago) , 1999,
Abstract: En este artículo se presentan hipótesis de trabajo y resultados de investigaciones que se vienen desarrollando en el Area de Estudios Urbano Regionales del Departamento de Sociología de la Facultad de Ciencias Sociales***. El objetivo central propuesto es colocar un conjunto de temas emergentes de investigación y análisis en un campo de creciente relevancia para las Ciencias Sociales. En dicho contexto, se ilustran tomando dos "estudios de caso" -Colonia y Maldonado- las características socioeconómicas y pautas de desarrollo local, de sociedades dinámicas que por su inserción privilegiada en el contexto de la reestructuración y globalización, están sujetas a impactos de diferente magnitud. En tal sentido, se espera contribuir a la comprensión de los procesos locales de diferenciación del desarrollo socioeconómico, particularmente con relación a los componentes de la globalización e integración regional. En primer lugar, se analizan las transformaciones socioeconómicas y territoriales en el contexto de globalización e integración regional. En segundo término, se plantean los escenarios prospectivos de crecimiento y globalización, en que se insertan Colonia y Maldonado. En tercer término, se recogen las imágenes y percepciones de la población sobre la integración regional. Finalmente, se resumen los "temas sociales emergentes" en el contexto de globalización e integración regional This paper presents hypotheses and research findings from projects developed at the Sociology Department at the University of the Republic of Uruguay.

Modular Hydrogels for Drug Delivery  [PDF]
Susana Sim?es, Ana Figueiras, Francisco Veiga
Journal of Biomaterials and Nanobiotechnology (JBNB) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jbnb.2012.32025
Abstract: The development of novel drug delivery systems is an essential step toward controlled site-specific administration of therapeutics within the body. It is desirable for delivery vehicles to be introduced into the body through minimally invasive means and, these vehicles should be capable of releasing drug to their intended location at a controlled rate. Furthermore, it is desirable to develop drug delivery systems that are capable of in vivo to suffer degradation and to deliver the drug completely, avoiding the need to surgically remove the vehicle at the end of its useful lifetime. Hydrogels are of particular interest for drug delivery applications due to their ability to address these needs in addition to their good biocompatibility, tunable network structure to control the diffusion of drugs and, tunable affinity for drugs. However, hydrogels are also limited for drug delivery applications due to the often quick elution of drug from their highly swollen polymer matrices as well as the difficulty inherent in the injection of macroscopic hydrogels into the body. This paper presents an overview to the advances in hydrogels based drug delivery. Different types of hydrogels can be used for drug delivery to specific sites in the gastrointestinal tract ranging from the oral cavity to the colon. These novel systems exhibit a range of several peculiar properties which make them attractive as controlled drug release formulations. Moreover, such materials are biocompatible and can be formulated to give controlled, pulsed, and triggered drug release profiles in a variety of tissues.
Prevalence of Spinal Metastasis in Neurosurgical Procedures: A Descriptive Study  [PDF]
Jefferson Walter Daniel, José Carlos Esteves Veiga
Open Journal of Epidemiology (OJEpi) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojepi.2016.64021
Abstract: Objective: This study sought to identify the prevalence of operations for spinal epidural neoplastic metastases relative to other spine and neurosurgical operative procedures. Methods: This study was descriptive and involved a retrospective review of data collected from patients who underwent neurosurgeries between February 1997 and January 2015 at a single quaternary hospital. The examined population was distributed across five descriptive categories to perform numerical distributions among neurosurgical operative procedures. Results: A total of 12,802 neurosurgical procedures were identified. These procedures were classified as follows: Skull and brain, 11,192 (87.42%); spinal column and spinal nervous tissue, 1462 (11.42%); and peripheral nerves, 148 (1.16%). Surgical procedures for the 1462 (100%) cases of spinal column and spinal nervous tissue diseases were distributed by nosology as follows: Degenerative intervertebral disk and spondylosis, 768 (52.54%); neoplastic, 279 (19.08%); traumatic, 221 (15.11%); congenital, 163 (11.14%); infectious and inflammatory, 27 (1.85%); and vascular, 4 (0.28%). With respect to the distribution of the 279 (100%) surgical procedures for spinal column and spinal nervous tissue neoplastic diseases, 124 (44.44%) procedures were for intradural neoplasms, and 155 (55.56%) procedures were for epidural spinal column neoplasms. The 155 (100%) operations for epidural neoplastic diseases were distributed into two groups: Primary epidural neoplasms, 42 (27.10%); and secondary epidural neoplasms, 113 (72.90%). Spinal column epidural neoplastic metastases (secondary neoplasms) represented 0.88% of the 12,802 neurosurgical procedures. Conclusions: Surgical procedures for spinal metastasis are uncommon with respect to all neurosurgical operative procedures. Trend analysis reveals an unchanging trend of prevalence for these procedures.
An Analysis of the Spectral Energetics for a Planet Experiencing Rapid Greenhouse Gas Emissions  [PDF]
André Ferreira Aranha, José Augusto P. Veiga
Atmospheric and Climate Sciences (ACS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/acs.2017.71009
Abstract: So far, energetics studies related to climate change have focused on the disturbed and undisturbed kinetic and potential energies, as well as their transformations, without dealing with the energetics involved in the phenomena of different spatial scales. Thus, the present work reports the first analysis of the spectral energetics for a condition of climate change, followed by the high-range emission scenario, RCP8.5, which originated from the new Max Planck Institute Earth System Model (MPI-ESM). The results showed that both types of generation (Go and Gn), baroclinic processes (Co and Cn), kinetic energies (Ko and Kn) and the barotropic process, Mn, significantly increase in the condition of a warming climate. Moreover, the results still reveal that in the most components of the energetics, is the planetary scale waves that are the most impacted under a climate change scenario. These results highlight that global warming can have different impacts on particular types of motions.
Eleitoralismo nos municípios portugueses
Veiga,Linda Gon?alves; Veiga,Francisco José;
Análise Social , 2005,
Abstract: this article tests for the existence of political and economic cycles in city councils in contintental portugal from 1979 to 2001. the empirical results clearly show that local government officials behave in an electoralist manner in election years local authorities increase their deficits and add to municipal expenditure, taking on more employees. in terms of expenditure, the highest increases take place under headings which are highly visible to the electorate, such as viaducts, roads and highways and associated works and rural transport. to the extent that local government officials? electoralism produces inefficiencies in terms of resource allocation, we believe there is a good case to be made for the imposition of rules limiting the discretionary management powers of local authority treasury departments.
Strategy of Innovation’s Management in the Pharmaceutical Industry Holds Intellectual Property  [PDF]
Cássia Rita Pereira da Veiga, Claudimar Pereira da Veiga, Jansen Maia Del Corso, Anderson Catapan
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2013.36065
Abstract: In the management of innovation, intellectual property rights assume the primary role. In this sense, this paper aims to describe, with examples, the various strategies used by the pharmaceutical industry in the preservation of their legitimate rights of the intellectual property system. This is an exploratory study by using documentary research and longitudinal time. Even with the difference in laws between countries, the pharmaceutical anti-competitive practices gain more space in the global economy. For patents become political tools that foster innovation and diffusion of knowledge, it is suggested that revisions in the legislation, homogeneous international regulation and supervision of health authorities ensure quality of product and control of pharmaceutical marketing. This work also addresses political and social considerations on the subject while exploring some suggestions of ideal patent system.
