Psychology (PSYCH) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2016.714175
Abstract: Registration of deaths classified as femicide, is an issue that occupies a breach of law, and that in this matter inconsistencies and absences in the information generated persist and persist in popular culture a strong stigma that various social groups and affected (victims) lead to underreporting of gender violence. Documentary research that conducted to determine the association of geographic areas and social factors related to violence to women occurred in the state of Yucatan during 2004 to 2014. Of the major findings of this study are: there are significant differences in the presence of domestic violence with the economic sector with a value of the test statistic of 13,500 with two degrees of freedom, a significant difference with a P-value of 0.001 (P-value < 0.05) was obtained, and P-value 0.000 (P-value < 0.05) for the murders of women. Geospatial distribution shows that the municipalities highest number of cases reported are found in large cities, and related to the three sectors of economic activity. Geographical distribution is North, South and East of the state. We conclude that it is required to have a surveillance system for the prevention of gender violence, also provide therapy to both men and women who have lived or have used violence systematically and taught by trained and sensitive to provide such care staff, and thus prevent deaths from gender violence.
Protective Green Patinas on Copper in Outdoor Constructions  [PDF]
Yolanda Hedberg, Inger Odnevall Wallinder
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2011.27109
Abstract: The last 15 years of research related to atmospheric corrosion and the release of copper to the environment are shortly summarized. Brown and green patinas with high barrier properties for corrosion are gradually evolved on copper at atmospheric conditions. The corrosion process and repeated dry and wet cycles results in a partial dissolution of corrosion products within the patina. Dissolved copper can be released and dispersed into the environment via the action of rainwater, however the major part is rearranged within the patina during drying cycles. The majority of corrosion products formed have a poor solubility, very different from water soluble copper salts. The release process is very slow and takes place independent of patina color. Its extent has only a marginal effect on the adherent patina. Released copper rapidly interacts with organic matter and in contact with different surfaces already in the close vicinity of the building, such as drainage systems, storm water pipes, pavements, stone materials and soil systems. These surfaces all have high capacities to retain copper in the runoff water and to reduce its concentration and chemical form to non-available and non-toxic levels for aquatic organisms.

Migrating techniques, multiplying diagnoses: the contribution of Argentina and Brazil to early 'detection policy' in cervical cancer
Eraso, Yolanda;
História, Ciências, Saúde-Manguinhos , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-59702010000500003
Abstract: this article on the early detection of cervical cancer focuses on the development of two leading diagnostic techniques - colposcopy and the pap smear test - and their histories in argentina and brazil. it explores how diagnostic tools were transferred between europe and the americas, while examining the intersection of cultural and medical aspects and the processes of adaptation and resignification in the receiving countries. colposcopy received little attention in the main western medical centers until south american countries reasserted its significance in the 1950s. 'peripheral' centers played a central role in early detection policies and the combined uses of these methods gave rise to a new stage of 'cumulative confidence' in cervical cancer diagnosis and screening.
A forma??o profissional frente aos desafios da interven??o e das atuais configura??es do ensino público, privado e a distancia

Servi?o Social & Sociedade , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-66282010000400008
Abstract: the current crisis of the capital, together with its new and old determinations, demands metamorphoses from the world of work, which requires a professional profile that serves to this phase of capitalism. my hypothesis is that the current configurations of education are adequate to the demands of the present phase of capitalism, and that such education is guided by the requirements of the labor market. so, the professional background has a double challenge: to unveil and to face the crisis of the capital, as well as the several ways making the working relations and conditions precarious, the flexibility of rights and the emphasis of the social policies that, as a part of the same reasoning, express and influence the professional activity and background.

Abstract: Entre 1934 y 1935, los poetas espa oles Manuel Altolaguirre y Concha Méndez publicaron en Londres la revista 1616, con la que aspiraron a compilar en diez hermosos números la mejor lírica inglesa y espa ola. A pesar de que la revista contaba con el original subtítulo saw the death of W. S. & M. de C. , con el que se hacía referencia a la muerte de William Shakespeare y Miguel de Cervantes, no se les incluyó en ningún número, donde sí aparecieron autores contemporáneos como Jorge de Montemayor, Sir Philip Sidney, Garcilaso de la Vega, William Drummond de Hawthornden y Lope de Vega. En este artículo se analizan los condicionantes de la elección de los poemas de Garcilaso y las versiones que de ellos realizó Drummond, publicados en el segundo número. Para ello tomamos como punto de partida la biografía del poeta que Altolaguirre publicó un a o antes, su correspondencia y las conferencias que impartió en Inglaterra. Between 1934 and 1935, Spanish poets Manuel Altolaguirre and Concha Méndez published in London a review called 1616, with the aim of compiling the best English and Spanish poetry in ten stunning issues. Although 1616 bore the original subtitle “saw the death of W. S. & M. C.”, which referred to the year in which William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes died, the writers were not included in any of the issues; however, contemporary authors such as Jorge de Montemayor, Sir Philip Sidney, Garcilaso de la Vega, William Drummond of Hawthornden and Lope de Vega can be found among its pages. This article focuses on Garcilaso’s sonnets and the reasons for choosing Drummond’s versions for the second issue of 1616, taking as a starting point Altolaguirre’s correspondence, his biography of Garcilaso (1933), and the lectures he gave in Britain.

ABSTRACT The paper shows the building of the Venezuelan National Herbarium till the death of its founder, theAmerican Botanist born in Switzerland Henri Pittier (1857-1950).

Transversal Lines of the Debates
Yolanda Onghena
Revista CIDOB d'Afers Internacionals , 1998,
Abstract: The Transversal Lines of the Debates gathers for publication the presentations of the scholars invited to the seminar. In the papers, Yolanda Onghena observes that the evolution from the cultural to the inter-cultural travels along four axes: the relations between cultureand society; the processes of change within identity-based dynamics; the representations of the Other; and, interculturality. Throughout the presentations and subsequent debates, whenever the different participants referred to aspects of the cultural identity problematic--”angst”, “obsession”, “deficit”, manipulation”, and others, these same participants in the Transversal Lines of the Debates also showed that, in certain areas, an optimistic viewpoint is not out of the question.
