Abstract: We use Principal Components to derive linear indices with the objective toevaluate the importance of Brazilian ports in regard to the characteristics of Infra-Structure, Operational Results, Geo-economic Aspects, and Projected Demand for the year2011. Ranks, normalized by the maximum rank, of the port scores in each of thoseconstructs are used as inputs and outputs in Data Envelopment Analysis models ofmulticriteria evaluation to classify the Brazilian ports according their importance. Thisordination is original, has a non subjective basis and may be used to set priorities in thecontext of resource allocations in the context of the ports support to the Brazilian foreigntrade.
A descriptive study about the use of pillboxes by older adults  [PDF]
Frank Roger Defanti e Souza, Carla da Silva Santana
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.512A014

The goal of this research was to observe which features, according to the users’ point of view, might influence the use of pillboxes. Older adults were surveyed in order to test different pillboxes and report their observations about their difficulties. Both the individuals and the pillboxes themselves have characteristics that might influence successful use, such as difficulty remembering medication names and lack of hand strength and the complexity of the pillboxes’ alarm system and opening mechanism. Pillboxes can be effective in helping older adults take their medication provided they are designed according to both dosage prescription and the user’s functional capacity.

Sirlene Aparecida Felisberto, Danúzia Batista da Silva e Souza
Advances in Microbiology (AiM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/aim.2014.415118
Abstract: This study aimed to perform the taxonomic survey of the species of periphytic Cyanobacteria in a lentic tropical environment, seeking to contribute to the knowledge on biodiversity and their distribution. This study was conducted at the Samambaia Reservoir, which is located at Federal University of Goiás, Goiania, Central West region of Brazil. In general, the water of the Samambaia Reservoir is characterized as more turbid and the increased biochemical oxygen demand as well as a higher concentration of coliforms in the rainy season. Twenty six samples were collected, ten in the dry season (09/2010 and 11/2010; 07/2012) and ten in the rainy season (01/2011 and 03/2011; 01/2013). Periphyton was collected from stems of aquatic plants (Cyperaceae), which were in the marginal area of the reservoir. With the floristic survey, 38 taxa of Cyanobacteria were identified in periphyton of the Samambaia Reservoir. Phormidium (family Phormidiaceae) and Aphanocapsa (Merismopediaceae) are among genera with the highest species richness. Regarding morphological types, many species of filamentous cyanobacteria were identified, followed by colonial taxa. In relation to the frequency of occurrence and the seasonal period, 14 taxa were classified in the rare category, 12 in common category and 12 in constant category. Regarding the seasonal period, Cyanophyceae were the greatest wealth in the rainy season (97.4%).
Significancia de efeitos técnicos na eficiência de produ??o da pesquisa agropecuária
Souza, Geraldo da Silva e;
Revista Brasileira de Economia , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-71402006000100005
Abstract: this article uses censored and truncated statistical models to assess technical effects potentially affecting the production frontier of embrapa's (empresa brasileira de pesquisa agropecuária) research centers. specifically the article assesses the significance of the factors level of research funds generated externally to the national treasury, actions of partnership, technical quality of research projects, client satisfaction, change in administration, type and size on the measurement of technical efficiency of the research centers. efficiency measures are computed both using data envelopment analysis (dea) and stochastic frontier methods. it is concluded that the dea efficiency measurements provide more information regarding the assessment of technical effects and that revenue generation, actions of partnership, technical quality of projects, and size are significant factors. the statistical analysis leading to these results fits a tobit model, defined by a distribution in the gamma family, to dea technical efficiency measurements. this analysis is consistent with the fit of a truncated normal distribution to residuals obtained from the fit of a dea production function.
Are Government Bonds Net Wealth? Some Empirical Evidence  [PDF]

Modern Economy (ME) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/me.2011.23045
Abstract: This paper aims to investigate the impact of government debt on economic growth for a balanced panel of G7 countries over the period 1990-2008. We found empirical evidence that Ricardian Equivalence does not holds in general. The analysis indicates that only Germany shows a negative association between public debt and economic growth. The US and France show Ricardian equivalence and UK, Japan, Italy and Canada show a positive association.

Abstract: the aims of this paper were to identify the principles that guide the nursing practice and to discuss limits and possibilities faced by a nursing team while working at the health services offered in the rio de janeiro state penitentiary system. in order to reach the suggested goals, it has been written a descriptive study with qualitative approach. the scenario was a penitentiary general hospital and there were interviewed 30 professionals nursing interviewed. the data was collected through a technique of interview. the results showed that care practice and assistance relationship are the principles which guide the nurse's performance at a penitentiary hospital unit. it has been also showed that the possibilities are the same as the ones we see beyond walls, and that the presence of a penitentiary agent, as well as the dangerous, are limitations for the nursing practice.
O percurso de Sidarta e o problema da identidade um estudo transdisciplinar do romance de Hermann Hesse
Souza, Luiz Eduardo da Silva e;Delgado, Victor Tinoco;
Psicologia USP , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-65642008000200007
Abstract: this paper aims to discuss the problem of personal identity based on hermann hesse’s novel sidarta. the novel’s main life-story personage is analized and contextualized in the light of jung’s psychology and mircea eliade and joseph campbell’s historical ethnologic perspectives. in a second time, the study contemplates also the sociological conception of the self-identity on modernity developed by anthony giddens. in the last instance, this paper seeks to circumscribe the idea of self-identity betting on the possibility of a transdisciplinary approach.

Maria do Socorro Ferreira da Silva,Rosemeri Melo e Souza
Revista Nordestina de Ecoturismo , 2011, DOI: 10.6008/ess1983-8344.2011.002.0003
Abstract: O uso de territórios com paisagens naturais para implanta o de atrativos turísticos n o é recente, marcando a cria o e implementa o legal das Unidades de Conserva o (UCs), os Parques Nacionais. O Brasil segue essa tendência, onde territórios de várias UCs, detentores de beleza cênica, s o usados como atrativo turístico. O Sistema Nacional de Unidades de Conserva o, responsável pela cria o, gest o e implementa o de UCs, divide-as no grupo de Prote o Integral e de Uso Sustentável. Esse ensaio tem como recorte empírico a APA do Morro do Urubu, em Aracaju/SE, que disp e de paisagens naturais usadas como atrativo turístico. Como objetivo analisar a instala o de atrativos turísticos na APA, e a conserva o socioambiental desse remanescente florestal. A pesquisa foi realizada mediante: análise bibliográfica e documental; entrevista semi-estruturada: responsável pela administra o, e coordenador técnico da APA (SEMARH); técnico responsável pelo gerenciamento do Parque da Cidade (EMDAGRO); comandante do Pelot o Ambiental; pesquisa de campo para identifica o dos atrativos turísticos, análise dos impactos socioambientais no espa o interno e no entorno. Além dos benefícios ambientais oferecidos gratuitamente, é usada para visita o pública, em fun o dos atrativos turísticos: Zoológico, Mirante da Santa, Teleférico, e das áreas para lazer e recrea o. A apropria o do território para a demanda das atividades turísticas contribui para a dilapida o dos recursos naturais e para a exclus o social daqueles que mantém la os afetivos com a APA. Assim, tal atividade concorre com os propósitos maiores da conserva o socioambiental, recriando lugares e excluindo as comunidades locais do cotidiano. Contudo, para a conserva o dos servi os ambientais da APA é necessário criar instrumentos de gest o ambiental, visando o ordenamento territorial; realiza o de campanhas educativas para visitantes e comunidade local; repasse dos lucros das empresas terceirizadas que usam o território da APA; e cobran a de taxas de entrada para visitantes.

Abstract: In this paper we use a Zero Sum Gains Data Envelopment Analysis model (ZSG-DEA) to allocate financial resources for competitive projects managed by the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa) research centers. The initial output measurement in the production process modeled is the amount of financial resources available, uniformly distributed among research centers. The input variables are proxies for the intensity of projects externally funded, quality of project management, and level of participation in complex researches. The allocation proposed has maximum global efficiency.
