The Three Pillars of Sustainability Framework: Approaches for Laws and Governance  [PDF]
William Henry Clune, Alexander J. B. Zehnder
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2018.93015
Abstract: The three pillars of sustainability framework is a multidisciplinary implementation and solutions oriented approach that recognizes most successful and scalable sustainability solutions require the presence of, and are driven by, all three pillars simultaneously: 1) technology and innovation; 2) laws and governance; and 3) economics and financial incentives. The three pillars framework is strategic because it often reveals or describes specific and feasible changes that advance sustainability solutions within markets and institutional settings. The section on technology discusses the crucial role that technology plays in creating new ways for doing more in our rapidly urbanizing communities by using less resources and energy inputs. The section on economics discusses problems with current conceptions of economic welfare that measure growth (flow) rather than the asset base (wealth), and explores possibilities for integrated and multidisciplinary analysis for coupled economic and social systems. The section on laws and governance considers the role of legal frameworks related to incentives, regulatory baselines, and in public policy formation, including influences and feedback effects from social norms, changing culture, and sustainability education. Technological development and engaging economic markets are at the center of our best and most rapidly deployable sustainability solutions. In that context, a specific focus is given throughout the discussion sections to the key role of laws and governance in supporting relevant, effective, and sustainable technological and economic development, as well as to highlight the crucial (often final) steps the law plays in successfully implementing new sustainability projects. As the discussions and examples (taken from Asia, the US, and Europe) demonstrate, the three pillars framework is flexible and useful in a number of contexts, as a solutions template, as an integrated planning approach, as a decision making guide, and for determining project priorities.

Abstract: background: acromegaly is caused by the abnormal production of growth hormone (gh) after epiphysiary closure. in 98% of cases, the source of gh hypersecretion is a somatotrope hypofisiary adenoma. objective: the objective of this project was to characterize a series of cases of acromegaly. materials and methods: outpatient charts were reviewed retrospectively at the hospital san jose in bogota. a total of 24 cases were detected from 1990 - 2007, with a confirmed diagnosis of acromegaly. a data collection tool was applied and demographic, clinical, paraclinical and treatment variables were collected. uni- and bi-variate analyses were used and data was analysed in the epi-info tool. results: a greater frequency favoring female gender was observed, and the age range was 20-45 years. average symptom evolution was 8, 3 years. most frequent signs and symptoms that generated consultation were changes in physical appearance, prognathism and cephalea. diagnostic imaging was performed in 96% of cases using mri with contrast, finding in most of them the macroadenoma variety of the tumor.ninety-two percent of patients underwent surgery and the most common technique included transesphenoidal approach. medical treatment used more commonly somatostatin analogues (octreótide) and 50% of patients received radiotherapy. conclusion: acromegaly is still being diagnosed by the time when important systemic alterations have appeared. it is observed at young age. the experience has been larger with macroadenomas, similar to reports from world literature that show this disease as one with an insidious course and late diagnosis that complicate the patients? prognosis. the findings in this case series related to clinical presentation and comorbidities are similar with the ones observed by other authors (acta med colomb 2010; 35: 48-52).

Abstract: Introducción: la acromegalia es una enfermedad causada por la producción anormal de hormona del crecimiento en momentos en que los huesos ya han tenido su cierre epifisiario. En un 98% de los casos, la fuente de la hipersecreción de hormona del crecimiento es un adenoma somatotropo hipofisiario. Objetivo: el objetivo de este trabajo fue caracterizar una serie de casos de acromegalia, en el hospital de San José de Bogotá. Material y métodos: se revisaron de manera retrospectiva los registros de consulta diaria del servicio de endocrinología del Hospital de San José de Bogotá, durante 1990-2007 encontrándose 24 registros de pacientes con diagnóstico confirmado de acromegalia, a los cuales se les aplicó un instrumento de recolección de datos, que permitió describir las principales características demográficas, clínicas, paraclínicas y de tratamiento, mediante un análisis univariado y bivariado, realizado en el software estadístico Epi-Info. Resultados: se observó una mayor frecuencia en el sexo femenino y en el rango de edad de 20 a 45 a os para ambos géneros. El tiempo promedio de evolución de los síntomas fue de 8,3 a os previos al diagnóstico. Los signos y síntomas más frecuentes que motivaron la consulta fueron cambios en la apariencia física, prognatismo y cefalea. El diagnóstico imagenológico se realizó en un 96% con resonancia nuclear magnética contrastada, encontrándose en su mayoría macroadenomas. Al 92% de los pacientes se les realizó cirugía siendo el abordaje más usual el transesfenoidal. En cuanto al tratamiento farmacológico el más común fue con análogos de somatostatina (octreótide) y recibieron radioterapia complementaria al tratamiento médico 50% de los pacientes. Conclusiónes: la acromegalia continúa diagnosticándose cuando ya se han presentado importantes alteraciones sistémicas. La experiencia ha sido mayor con los casos de macroadenomas hipofisiarios, es decir, como aún lo sigue reportando la literatura mundial es una enfermedad insidiosa cuyo diagnóstico tardío empeora su pronóstico. Los hallazgos en esta serie en cuanto a manifestaciones clínicas y comorbilidades son coherentes con los observados por otros autores (Acta Med Colomb 2010; 35: 48-52).

Primitive elements in the matroid-minor Hopf algebra
Henry Crapo,William Schmitt
Mathematics , 2005,
Abstract: We introduce the matroid-minor coalgebra C, which has labeled matroids as distinguished basis, and coproduct given by splitting a matroid into a submatroid and complementary contraction all possible ways. We introduce two new bases for C; the first of these is is related to the distinguished basis by Mobius inversion over the rank-preserving weak order on matroids, the second by Mobius inversion over the suborder excluding matroids that are irreducible with respect to the free product operation. We show that the subset of each of these bases corresponding to the set of irreducible matroids is a basis for the subspace of primitive elements of C. Projecting C onto the matroid-minor Hopf algebra H, we obtain bases for the subspace of primitive elements of H.
