    Existen prejuicios en relación con la vejez, incluso entre los profesionales que se dedican a la gerontología. Uno común y peligroso es considerar que los viejos son todos enfermos o discapacitados. La relación médico-paciente es la piedra angular de la práctica y ética médicas. Para alcanzar el respeto por los adultos mayores es necesaria una medicina prudente, basada en una práctica en la cual la reflexión ética y clínica pueda contribuir. Esto último es posible si se hacen valer los derechos del adulto mayor, en particular como paciente para la toma de decisiones. PMID:20379380

  2. City Mayors

    NSDL National Science Digital Library

    Drawing on the expertise of a team of editors who reside in Britain, Germany, Spain, Mexico, France, and a number of other countries, the City Mayors organization is an "international network of professionals working to promote strong cities and good local government." Their website takes on all of the important urban issues of the day, including governance, affordable housing, sustainable development, transportation, and a number of other pressing issues. On their homepage, visitors will find links to recent news stories from cities around the world and direct links to thematic sections such as business, finance, environment, and development. One section that should not be missed is the "City Rankings" area, which includes helpful lists of the largest cities in the world by land area, population and density, along with a list of the most expensive cities in the world.

  4. United States Conference of Mayors

    NSDL National Science Digital Library

    Founded during the throes of the Great Depression in 1932, the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM), was established to serve as the official nonpartisan organization of the nation's cities with populations of 30,000 or more. Each city is represented in the conference by its chief elected official, and the primary roles of the USCM are to "promote the development of effective national urban/suburban policy, strengthen federal-city relationships, and ensure that federal policy meets urban needs." New visitors to the site will want to begin by browsing through the key programs section of the site, which delineates their main areas of programmatic interests -- such as dealing effectively with brownfield sites, urban regeneration schemes, and community policing (among a list of several dozen). While the site contains a number of working documents and project proposals and updates for consideration, the highlight here really is the extensive archive of webcasts from the group's annual conferences dating back to the year 2000.

    Many urban areas are faced with similar problems, and it makes sense that many mayors in the United States have joined forces with The U.S. Conference of Mayors in order to speak with a unified voice about the issues that urban areas struggle with on a regular basis. With that in mind, the Conference of Mayors has put together this sage site which contains a diverse set of policy publications and attendant prescriptions addressing everything from brownfields to climate protection. The papers are organized chronologically and they date back to 1993. All told, there are over 50 papers available here and some of the more recent titles include a report on hunger and homelessness in American cities and an omnibus survey on cities' water management policies.

  15. Evolution of a Quaternary peralkaline volcano: Mayor Island, New Zealand

    Houghton, B.F.; Weaver, S.D.; Wilson, C.J.N.; Lanphere, M.A.

    1992-01-01

    Mayor Island is a Holocene pantelleritic volcano showing a wide range of dispersive power and eruptive intensity despite a very limited range in magma composition of only 2% SiO2. The primary controls on this range appear to have been the magmatic gas content on eruption and a varying involvement of basaltic magma, rather than major-element chemistry of the rhyolites. The ca. 130 ka subaerial history of the volcano contains portions of three geochemical cycles with abrupt changes in trace-element chemistry following episodes of caldera collapse. The uniform major-element chemistry of the magma may relate to a fine balance between rates of eruption and supply and the higher density of the more evolved (Ferich) magmas which could be tapped only after caldera-forming events had removed significant volumes of less evolved but lighter magma. ?? 1992.

  9. Evidence Of Nonlinear Infrasound Propagation From The 2010 El Mayor Rupture

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    deGroot-Hedlin, C. D.; Walker, K. T.; Hedlin, M. A.

    2011-12-01

    In recent years, a large number of surface and atmospheric sources have generated infrasound energy that has been recorded at source-receiver distances over 1000 km at the USArray, a large transportable array making its way across the United States. The sources, including surface explosions, large bolides, mining events and a space shuttle, combined with the very high density of recording sites, have contributed to an understanding of the broad range of infrasound signals that can be recorded at seismic sensors. One finding from these studies is that infrasound propagation modeling using both ray theory and linear full-waveform synthesis methods fails to predict the full range of arrivals observed at the recording sites. This failure reflects inaccuracies either in the atmospheric specifications - the wind and static sounds - that guide acoustic propagation, or in the assumptions used in linear propagation methods. The effect of nonlinearity on infrasound propagation modeling is investigated for the 7.2 El Mayor earthquake that occurred on 4 April, 2010. This event generated infrasound at frequencies of several Hertz that was recorded over 200 km away at sites to the north and west of the epicentral region, despite stratospheric winds that favor propagation in an eastward direction. The observations of higher frequency infrasound suggest non-linear steepening, either at stratospheric or thermospheric altitudes. The locations of the epicenter, aftershocks, and surface rupture suggest that the rupture had a spatial extent of roughly 75 km in length, i.e nearly a line source. We compute waveforms with and without the effects of nonlinearity from a line source for a wind and sound speed model relevant to the El Mayor rupture, and compare these to waveforms recorded for this event.

    The El Mayor - Cucapah earthquake occurred close to the Mexico - U.S. border, at the edge of the EarthScope - Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO’s) footprint. UNAVCO was one of several community organizations to support event response, providing co-seismic observations from PBO’s CGPS stations, borehole strainmeters and seismometers, the shipment of a Terrestrial LiDAR Scanner, and the acquisition of InSAR data through the UNAVCO-hosted WiNSAR consortium. PBO standard 15 second GPS data spanning the event for sites throughout southern California were recorded at 100% data completeness and were used to establish co-seismic displacement hours to days following the earthquake. High-rate (1-5 Hz) GPS downloads were completed with a 97% data return and used by community members to plot co-seismic displacement waveforms. In the months following the event 1Hz GPS data has been collected a disseminated for multiple airborne lidar and photography missions. CGPS station P796, a deep-drilled braced monument, was constructed in San Luis, AZ along the border within 5 weeks of the event. In addition, UNAVCO participated in a successful University of Arizona-led proposal for the deployment of six continuous GPS stations for post-seismic observations. These stations will be installed, maintained and data analyzed by UNAVCO/PBO in coordination with CICESE, an Associate Member institution in Mexico. At present two stations (ALAX, SITX) are installed with 4 remaining permits in process.

  12. Studies on bioflocculant production by a mixed culture of Methylobacterium sp. Obi and Actinobacterium sp. Mayor

    2013-01-01

    Background Bioflocculants effect the aggregation of suspended solutes in solutions thus, a viable alternative to inorganic poly-ionic and synthetic organic flocculants which are associated with deleterious health problems. Consequently, a consortium of two bacteria species were evaluated for optimized bioflocculant yield following the inadequacies of axenic cultures. Results 16S rDNA nucleotide sequencing and BLAST analysis of nucleotide sequences were used to identify the bacterial species, carbon and nitrogen sources optimally supporting bioflocculant production were assessed and the purified bioflocculant characterized. Nucleotide sequences showed 97% and 96% similarity to Methylobacterium sp. AKB-2008-KU9 and Methylobacterium sp. strain 440. The second isolate, likewise, showed 98% similarity to Actinobacterium OR-221. The sequences were deposited in GenBank as Methylobacterium sp. Obi [accession number HQ537130] and Actinobacterium sp. Mayor [accession number JF799090]. Flocculating activity of 95% was obtained in the presence of Ca2+ and heat-stability was exhibited with retention of above 70% activity at 100°C in 30 min. In addition, bioflocculant yield was about 8.203 g/l. A dose of 1 mg/ml of purified bioflocculant was optimal for the clarification of Kaolin suspension (100 ml) following Jar test. FTIR spectrum revealed the presence of carboxyl and hydroxyl functional groups amongst others. Conclusions The mixed culture produced bioflocculant with high flocculating activity and an improved yield. The efficiency observed with jar test may imply industrial applicability. PMID:23915393

    The realization of national climate change commitments, as agreed through international negotiations, requires local action. However, data is still insufficient to make accurate statements about the scale of urban emissions (UNHABITAT, 2011). The need of comparable emission inventories at city level, including smaller cities, is widely recognized to develop evidence-based policies accounting for the relation between emissions and institutional, socio-economic and demographic characteristics at city level. This paper presents a collection of harmonized greenhouse gases (GHG) emission inventories (the "CoM sample 2013") at municipal level directly computed by the cities and towns that participate in the EU Covenant of Mayors initiative. This is the mainstream European movement of local and regional authorities who voluntarily commit to reduce GHG emissions by 20 % or more by 2020. The "CoM sample 2013" (http://edgar.jrc.ec.europa.eu/com/data/index.php?SECURE=123, doi:10.2904/EDGARcom2013) has been carefully checked to ensure its internal consistency and its congruity with respect to internationally accepted guide values for emission factors. Overall, it provides valuable data for the analysis of the heterogeneity of final energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of cities.

    Virtual globes are becoming ubiquitous for visualizing the Earth and other planets. However, as earth scientists pursue methods to visually explore and interpret earth surface processes using sub-meter pixel resolution digital elevation models (DEM) and imagery data spanning large areas, limitations of the commonly used virtual globes have emerged. We developed Crusta as an alternative virtual globe that allows users to investigate such data by conducting interactive, real-time, virtual field mapping. Crusta represents the globe as a 30-sided polyhedron to avoid distortion, in particular, the singularities at the poles characteristic of other projections. Each side can be subdivided to an arbitrarily fine grid to accommodate DEM and image data of arbitrary resolution. A convenient pre-processing tool based on the GDAL library facilitates importing a number of data formats into the Crusta-specific multi-scale hierarchical format. We designed Crusta with a focus on dynamic, interactive exploration of data: vertical exaggeration, shading, color ramp application, and display, generation and editing of decorated vector lines are supported in real time, directly on the virtual 3D landscape. These powerful visualization and interaction capabilities enable fluid and intuitive exploration, assist discovery and interpretation, and provide detailed feature mapping. Currently, we are using Crusta to investigate LiDAR data collected after the 4 April 2010, Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake in northern Mexico. We have generated a single dataset comprised of multiple layers of finer DEMs embedded in coarser ones: 1) tripod LiDAR covering about 2 km of the rupture zone at 3 cm/pixel; 2) aerial LiDAR covering almost the entire rupture zone (over 300 km2) at 50 cm/pixel; 3) ASTER 30 m/pixel over the California/Mexico border region; 4) NASA's BlueMarble Next Generation over the whole globe at about 500 km/pixel. The interactive capabilities of Crusta to visually explore this dataset and create accurate, high-quality 3D geologic maps of the fresh, meter-scale coseismic surface ruptures has potential to advance understanding of how earthquakes deform the Earth's surface.

    We report newly available data sets and preliminary analysis of ground- and airborne-lidar surveys of the 4 April 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake rupture. The hyperarid setting and varied surficial geology of this complex rupture zone presents an ideal setting to advance the use of lidar in post-earthquake scientific response. Terrestrial lidar surveys commenced within two weeks of the earthquake and capture ephemeral geomorphic features of the rupture zone. We recorded approximately 2 km of rupture on the Borrego fault where oblique dextral slip approaches four meters. These data highlight fine-scale features such as centimeter-scale scarps, subtle warping of the ground surface, and striations on the exposed fault free-face. Airborne lidar surveys, collected mid-August, 2010, span the rupture zone for 100 km in a NW-SE direction, from just south of the international border to the tidal flats of the Colorado River delta at the head of the Gulf of California. 3.8 billion point measurements were obtained with an average density of 11 points per square meter. GPS ground control was provided from a combination of PBO stations north of the border and coordination with the occupation of post-earthquake campaign sites in the central and southern portions of the rupture zone. The 3 km average width of the survey captures the complexity of strain-transfer between the multiple fault segments that slipped in 2010, as well as the adjacent zone of surface ruptures attributed to the 1892 Laguna Salada earthquake. This data set provides a new basis for offset measurements to be compared against field data collected immediately following the 2010 earthquake. Quantitative comparison to lower-resolution, pre-event lidar collected by the Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía (INEGI) illuminates near-field distributed vertical deformation adjacent to the fault rupture. The southeastern half of the lidar survey spans a zone of cryptic dextral deformation, hosted within the thick sedimentary fill, where little surface evidence of tectonic deformation has been recovered to date. Here the lidar reveals a few linear zones of warping and minor surface ruptures that are likely faults. However the majority of dextral slip here appears to have been absorbed by distributed deformation of the sediments.

    Objective: To increase the positive and mitigate the negative health impacts of the mayor's draft transport strategy for London. Design: A rapid prospective health impact assessment (HIA) of the penultimate draft of the strategy, using a review commissioned by the regional director of public health; an appraisal of congestion charging; and a participatory workshop. Two audits of changes were performed to assess the impact on policy of the HIA process. Setting: Regional government policy development. Intervention: Recommendations from the rapid HIA were fed back into the drafting process. Main outcome measure: Changes (a) between the penultimate draft and the draft for public consultation and (b) between that and the final mayoral strategy. Results: The draft transport strategy published for consultation differed in a number of respects from the previous version. Almost all the recommendations from the HIA were incorporated into the final strategy. Significant changes included promoting sustainable travel plans for workplaces and schools; giving priority to infrastructure and services that benefit London's deprived communities; increased emphasis on promoting walking and cycling and reducing reliance on private cars; and a commitment to track the health impacts of the final strategy and its implementation. Specific additions included re-allocating road space. Conclusion: HIA was successful in influencing the transport strategy for London, resulting in several improvements from a health viewpoint. HIA is an effective method both for bringing about significant change in policy proposals and in increasing policy makers' understanding of determinants of health and hence in changing attitudes of policy makers.

  5. Co-seismic vertical displacements from a single post-seismic lidar DEM: example from the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake

    A method is outlined by means of which it is possible to estimate high-resolution vertical displacements due to an earthquake even in the case where high-resolution topography is lacking before the earthquake. This result can be achieved by combining a highly accurate, post-event digital elevation model (DEM), for example lidar, with archived satellite imagery. The method is illustrated by calculating vertical displacements for the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. For this earthquake, there are both pre- and post-event lidar DEMs from which vertical displacements may also be estimated after correcting for the lateral advection of topography due to horizontal displacements. A comparison between the two means of deriving vertical displacements shows generally good agreement, with the displacements obtained using satellite imagery performing better in high relief areas. As a result of this property, we are able to trace the vertical offsets due to the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake as the rupture jumped from the Pescadores fault to the Borrego fault in propagating through the high relief of the Sierra Cucapah.

  6. Recent benthic foraminifers as indicators of the sedimentary dynamics of the Tina Mayor and Tina Menor estuaries (S Bay of Biscay, N Spain)

    Recent benthic foraminifers from two estuaries in the North Spanish coastal region (Tina Mayor and Tina Menor) were analysed with the aim of characterising the ecology and dynamics of the different estuarine sub-environments. A total of 35 benthic foraminifer species were taxonomically determined in the Tina Mayor estuary, 22 of which contained living individuals during the sampling. For Tina Menor, there were 51 species, 30 of them biocenotic. The most abundant species in these estuaries were Ammonia tepida, Cribroelphidium williamsoni, Jadammina macrescens, Lobatula lobatula, Miliammina fusca, Rosalina globularis and Trochammina inflata. In Tina Menor, Haynesina germanica was also abundant. In the foraminifer assemblages, live (biocenotic) and dead (thanatocenotic) specimens were differentiated and processed statistically by a multivariate cluster-Q type analysis and detrended correspondence ordination analysis (DCA). Groupings of biocenotic assemblages were obtained for both estuaries indicating an ecologic separation of marine mouth, low and high marsh and zones with strong salinity oscillations in these estuaries. Thanatocenotic groupings, nevertheless, showed a different organisation of that of the ecologic groups, which were indicative of a transport of individuals from the mouth to the inner/mid estuary locations, along the main and/or secondary channels of these estuaries. Local differences between Tina Mayor and Tina Menor can be explained by the different physiographies of the estuary as a consequence of the different geological/sedimentological histories of both estuaries. Benthic foraminifer assemblages are distributed in the estuary following three zones: an outer estuary having marine characteristics with L. lobatula and R. globularis, a mid estuary, including a subtidal mudflat with variable salinity (A. tepida, C. williamsoni) and a marsh (J. macrescens, M. fusca and T. inflata), which is different in both estuaries. Tina Mayor is filled with more sediment, and it has a reduced mudflat and a large high marsh located above the MHW (Mean High Waters), where T. inflata is the species marker of the intervals between the MHW and MHWST (Mean High Waters Spring Tides) levels. In Tina Menor, estuary mudflats crossed with brackish secondary channels (with H. germanica) below MHWNT (Mean High Waters Neap Tides) are more developed, though the environments of low marsh with scarce vegetation (with M. fusca) are dominant in intervals between MHWNT and MHW. The relative abundance of M. fusca, particularly in the mid estuary, differentiates Tina Mayor and Tina Menor from other estuaries of Cantabria. Biocenotic and thanatocenotic assemblages show a general similarity in both estuaries (Sanders's index, > 70%). Samples with low similarity are evidence of the effect of post-mortem transport mostly produced by suspension. The percentage of exotic specimens is always less than 35%, supporting the mesotidal characteristic of both estuaries. The present results confirm the value of benthic foraminifers as markers of estuarine sub-environments, supporting their value for detecting changes in past estuarine environments.

  7. Correlation of Peak Dynamic and Static Coulomb Failure Stress with Seismicity Rate Change after the M7.2 EL Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake

    We have investigated the relation between the April 4 Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake and seismicity rate changes in southern California and northern Baja California in the months following the mainshock. Specifically, we use a dynamic rupture model with observational constraints for the event simulated in the SCEC 3D CVM4.0 (Roten and Olsen, 2009) to calculate the changes in the resulting static (dCFS) and dynamic Coulomb failure stress, parameterized by its largest positive amplitude (peak dCFS(t)). We employ a modified cross correlation between the seismicity rate change (for both undeclustered and declustered catalogs) and both dCFS and peak dCFS(t) in time and space (as used by Kilb et. al, 2002). We find that the correlation parameter is greater for peak dCFS(t) compared to dCFS and highest for periods after the mainshock of longer than 1 week for dCFS, and a maximum at 1 month for peak dCFS(t). We perform this analysis using both CVM-4 and CVM-H, investigating, in particular, which model better describes the increased seismicity NW of the rupture. The stress changes are rotated onto the focal mechanism of the June 15, 2010 Mw5.7 aftershock as well as onto optimum oriented planes (King, 1994). For regionally rotated stresses we find that while the dCFS values are very similar for the two CVMs, the corresponding peak dCFS(t) values are noticeably different. In particular, CVM-H generates a lobe of (directivity-induced) large peak dCFS(t) between the Elsinore and San Jacinto Faults toward the Los Angeles basin not present in the results from CVM-4. However, both CVMs produce similar peak dCFS(t) lobes near San Diego. Finally, we searched for threshold levels of dCFS and peak dCFS(t) that may be required to trigger earthquakes/aftershocks of different magnitude that might provide clues to earthquake prediction; we found a possible peak dCFS(t) threshold value of 0.7 bars for aftershocks (>4000) in regions of positive static stress. Peak dynamic stress change (in bars) calculated from CVM-4 for the April 4 Mw7.2 El Mayor- Cucapah earthquake, rotated onto a strike of 310 degrees, corresponding to the rupture of the Mw 5.72 June 15, 2010 event (epicenter depicted by the white star, mainshock by black star).

    We present crustal motion data obtained from an analysis of continuous and campaign GPS data for southern California and northern Baja Mexico, including the first results from a new six-station extension of the NSF EarthScope PBO network across the international border into northern Baja California, Mexico. This PBO extension was constructed in late Summer and early Fall 2010 in response to the April 4, 2010, Mw7.2 Sierra El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. The locations of the six new PBO sites were selected in order to complement the dense existing continuous and campaign GPS networks in southern California, as well as providing needed continuous data for northern Mexico. Coseismic displacements for sites located nearest to the earthquake exceed 20 cm. In addition to allowing precise estimates of coseismic displacements, the ~17 years of pre-earthquake data for northern Baja California and southern California obtained from the archives at SCEC, UNAVCO, SOPAC, the University of Miami, and other sources, provides an opportunity to assess the evolution of postseismic deformation over the coming years. We will present updated results for pre- and post-seismic velocity for an assessment of post-seismic perturbations to the secular velocity field.

    Whether static or dynamic stress changes play the most important role in triggering earthquakes in the near field is still in debate. Here, we examine the seismicity rate changes in southern California following the 2010 Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. We focus on the Salton Sea Geothermal Field (SSGF) and the San Jacinto Fault Zone (SJFZ) because of high-sensitivity continuous borehole recordings and ample background seismicity. A significant increase in seismic activity is found in both study regions immediately following the main shock. However, near the SSGF where the static Coulomb stress decreased, the seismicity rate dropped below the pre-main-shock rate after ˜1 month. In comparison, along the SJFZ with an increase in the static Coulomb stress, the seismicity rate remained higher than the background rate with several moderate-size earthquakes occurring in the subsequent months. While we cannot completely rule out other mechanisms, these observations are best consistent with a widespread increase in seismicity from dynamic stress changes immediately after the main shock, and longer term seismicity rate changes from static stress changes. Our observation, together with other recent studies, suggests that both static and dynamic stress changes are important in triggering near-field earthquakes, but their affected regions and timescales are different.

    We present crustal motion measurements from an analysis of continuous (CGPS) and campaign data for southern California and northern Baja California, Mexico. The 2010 April 4 Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah (EMC) earthquake is the largest event to occur along the southern San Andreas fault system in nearly two decades. We analyzed data from 103 CGPS sites located within 250 km of the EMC earthquake, determining coordinate time series relative to a stable North America reference frame. In addition to these CGPS sites that had data for a significant time range prior to the EMC event, we analyzed data from 8 CGPS sites that were constructed following the earthquake, and are now part of the EarthScope Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO) network. We also analyzed data from both before and after the EMC earthquake for ~80 campaign sites located primarily in northern Baja California, Mexico. We combined the CGPS and campaign datasets during our analysis in order to produce the best estimates for postseismic deformation. We applied a constrained random search algorithm minimizing the misfit to the individual site coordinate positions to determine the parameters of our kinematic model. We estimate interseismic velocity, annual and semi-annual perturbations, coseismic offsets and postseismic deformation following the Mw7.2 EMC event and the largest aftershock, a Mw5.7 event in southern California on June 15th, 2010, and the characteristic exponential decay time for each event at each individual site. We assess any potential tradeoffs between the different parameters in our kinematic model, including tradeoffs between estimates for aftershock coseismic offsets and postseismic relaxation.

    On 4 April 2010, the M7.2 Sierra el Mayor event occurred in Baja California, Mexico. The NEES@UCSB Wildlife field site in the Imperial Basin is located 110 km NNW of the hypocenter. The event was recorded on all channels: by three-component strong-motion accelerometers at the surface and in boreholes at various depths and by pore pressure transducers located in a saturated, liquefiable layer. We have computed the spectra of the pore pressure response in the frequency domain for signals recorded at different depths. At each depth, the spectrum is attenuated as a power law with a sharp discontinuity at a frequency close to 1 Hz. We report the value of the exponents that characterize the power-law behavior of these spectra. We also computed cross-spectral analysis of the pore pressure records from different depths. The functional behaviors of the curves of the cross-spectra are similar to that of the original spectra. For comparison, we present the spectrum of each component of the ground motion recorded at a nearby accelerometer. Partially due to the late arrival of the surface waves, the frequency content of the recorded pore pressure signal is a function of time. To gain a better understanding of the time-dependence of the frequency content, we performed spectral analysis of the signal in a moving window and wavelet transforms of the full signals. The spectral analysis suggests that, except for high frequencies, the curves exhibit a complex behavior as a function of the window position. We interpret and discuss the consequences of the estimated spectra, the cross-spectra, and the wavelet transforms.

  12. How quickly do earthquakes get locked in the landscape? One year of erosion on El Mayor-Cucapah rupture scarps imaged by repeat terrestrial lidar scans

    Differencing repeat terrestrial lidar scans of the 2010 M7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah (EMC) earthquake rupture reveals the rapid onset of surface processes that simultaneously degrade and preserve evidence of coseismic fault rupture in the landscape and paleoseismic record. We surveyed fresh fault rupture two weeks after the 4 April 2010 earthquake, then repeated these surveys one year later. We imaged fault rupture through four substrates varying in degree of consolidation and scarp facing-direction, recording modification due to a range of aeolian, fluvial, and hillslope processes. Using lidar-derived DEM rasters to calculate the topographic differences between years results in aliasing errors because GPS uncertainty between years (~1.5cm) exceeds lidar point-spacing (<1.0cm) shifting the raster sampling of the point cloud. Instead, we coregister each year's scans by iteratively minimizing the horizontal and vertical misfit between neighborhoods of points in each raw point cloud. With the misfit between datasets minimized, we compute the vertical difference between points in each scan within a specified neighborhood. Differencing results reveal two variables controlling the type and extent of erosion: cohesion of the substrate controls the degree to which hillslope processes affect the scarp, while scarp facing direction controls whether more effective fluvial erosion can act on the scarp. In poorly consolidated materials, large portions (>50% along strike distance) of the scarp crest are eroded up to 5cm by a combination of aeolian abrasion and diffusive hillslope processes, such as rainsplash and mass-wasting, while in firmer substrate (i.e., bedrock mantled by fault gouge) there is no detectable hillslope erosion. On the other hand, where small gullies cross downhill-facing scarps (<5% along strike distance), fluvial erosion has caused 5-50cm of headward scarp retreat in bedrock. Thus, although aeolian and hillslope processes operate over a greater along-strike distance, fluvial processes concentrated in pre-existing bedrock gullies transport a far greater volume of material across the scarp. Substrate cohesiveness dictates the degree to which erosive processes act to relax the scarp (e.g., gravels erode more easily than bedrock). However, scarp locations that favor fluvial processes suffer rapid, localized erosion of vertical scarp faces, regardless of substrate. Differential lidar also reveals debris cones formed at the base of the scarp below locations of scarp crest erosion. These indicate the rapid growth of a colluvial wedge. Where a fissure occupies the base of the scarp we observe nearly complete in-filling by silt and sand moved by both mass wasting and fluvial deposition, indicating that fissure fills observed in paleoseismic trenches likely bracket the age of an earthquake to within one year. We find no evidence of differential postseismic tectonic deformation across the fault within the ~100m aperture of our surveys.

    Tem-se constatado uma preocupante carência no ensino de astronomia nos diversos níveis de escolaridade. Neste trabalho discutimos várias práticas didático-pedagógicas que vimos desenvolvendo para crianças, jovens e adultos em processo de alfabetização, visando contribuir para reparar aquela carência. Propomos uma metodologia que incorpora as recentes exigências das políticas públicas educacionais, estimula o desenvolvimento de textos e materiais instrucionais, é compatível com a realidade desse público e é adaptável às respectivas faixas etárias. A observação do céu sempre esteve presente na vida de nossos antepassados, dando suporte à compreensão do ser humano como integrante da natureza. Visamos com este trabalho suprir a deficiência encontrada para se tratar a relação do ser humano com o céu, no ambiente escolar. Os resultados são animadores e envolvem práticas e textos que desenvolvemos e atividades realizadas pelos alunos. No primeiro grupo destacamos o desenvolvimento de várias práticas: "viagem aos planetas" (construímos o "foguete", os planetas em escala, contamos história e redigimos texto de orientação para os professores); "gnômon humano" (os próprios corpos dos alunos são usados para registrar o movimento aparente do Sol); "crateras da Lua" (concretização de "meteoritos" e "solo lunar" de gesso e exploração da relação entre energia cinética do bólido e tamanho da cratera formada); etc. No segundo grupo, produções de desenhos e redações e discussões dos alunos após a realização de cada prática, revelam que estas têm se mostrado muito eficientes, tanto para estimular a imaginação e a fantasia dos envolvidos, como para trabalhar-se habilidades, competências e conteúdos relacionados à astronomia, segundo uma perspectiva interdisciplinar contextualizada.

    The 4 April 2010 Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah (EMC) earthquake provides the best opportunity to date to study the lithospheric response to a large (>M6) magnitude earthquake in the Salton Trough region through analysis of Global Positioning System (GPS) data. In conjunction with the EarthScope Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO), we installed six new continuous GPS stations in the months following the EMC earthquake to increase station coverage in the epicentral region of northern Baja California, Mexico. We modeled the pre-EMC deformation field using available campaign and continuous GPS data for southern California and northern Baja California and inferred a pre-EMC secular rate at each new station location. Through direct comparison of the pre- and post-EMC secular rates, we calculate long-term changes associated with viscoelastic relaxation in the Salton Trough region. We fit these velocity changes using numerical models employing an elastic upper crustal layer underlain by a viscoelastic lower crustal layer and a mantle half-space. Forward models that produce the smallest weighted sum of squared residuals have an upper mantle viscosity in the range 4-6 × 1018 Pa s and a less well-resolved lower crustal viscosity in the range 2 × 1019 to 1 × 1022 Pa s. A high-viscosity lower crust, despite high heat flow in the Salton Trough region, is inconsistent with felsic composition and might suggest accretion of mafic lower crust associated with crustal spreading obscured by thick sedimentary cover.

  18. Testing long-period ground-motion simulations of scenario earthquakes using the Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah mainshock: Evaluation of finite-fault rupture characterization and 3D seismic velocity models

    Graves, Robert W.; Aagaard, Brad T.

    2011-01-01

    Using a suite of five hypothetical finite-fault rupture models, we test the ability of long-period (T>2.0 s) ground-motion simulations of scenario earthquakes to produce waveforms throughout southern California consistent with those recorded during the 4 April 2010 Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. The hypothetical ruptures are generated using the methodology proposed by Graves and Pitarka (2010) and require, as inputs, only a general description of the fault location and geometry, event magnitude, and hypocenter, as would be done for a scenario event. For each rupture model, two Southern California Earthquake Center three-dimensional community seismic velocity models (CVM-4m and CVM-H62) are used, resulting in a total of 10 ground-motion simulations, which we compare with recorded ground motions. While the details of the motions vary across the simulations, the median levels match the observed peak ground velocities reasonably well, with the standard deviation of the residuals generally within 50% of the median. Simulations with the CVM-4m model yield somewhat lower variance than those with the CVM-H62 model. Both models tend to overpredict motions in the San Diego region and underpredict motions in the Mojave desert. Within the greater Los Angeles basin, the CVM-4m model generally matches the level of observed motions, whereas the CVM-H62 model tends to overpredict the motions, particularly in the southern portion of the basin. The variance in the peak velocity residuals is lowest for a rupture that has significant shallow slip (<5 km depth), whereas the variance in the residuals is greatest for ruptures with large asperities below 10 km depth. Overall, these results are encouraging and provide confidence in the predictive capabilities of the simulation methodology, while also suggesting some regions in which the seismic velocity models may need improvement.

  19. A New Ensemble-Based Method for Assessing Uncertainties and Parameter Tradeoffs in Complex Models of Postseismic Deformation: Application to the 2010 M=7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Rollins, C.; Barbot, S.; Avouac, J. P.

    2014-12-01

    The 2010 M=7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake occurred in the Salton Trough, a region of thinned lithosphere and high heat flow, and the postseismic deformation following this earthquake presents a unique opportunity to study the rheology of extensional environments and the mechanics of ductile flow within and beneath the lithosphere. Previous work [Rollins et al, in prep.] revealed that GPS timeseries of surface displacement following the earthquake were well fit to a coupled model simulating stress-driven afterslip on the deep extension of the coseismic rupture, Newtonian viscoelastic relaxation in a low-viscosity zone in the lower crust of the Salton Trough aligned with areas of high heat flow, and Newtonian viscoelastic relaxation in a three-dimensional asthenosphere with geometry matching that of the regional lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary inferred from receiver functions. Extending the success of this model to a robust interpretation of the mechanics of deformation at depth requires a better understanding of uncertainties and trade-offs between parameters (depth of the brittle-ductile transition, viscosities of the lower crust and asthenosphere, geometry of viscosity anomalies in the Salton Trough, frictional parameters of the possible downdip extensions of the coseismic rupture, and correlations among these parameters). We will show results from recent work that uses a newly developed method to efficiently explore this model space in a Bayesian sense. The method employs the Neighborhood Algorithm of Sambridge [1999], which makes use of Voronoi cells to optimize the search in the model space, samples regions that contains models of acceptable data fit, and extracts robust information from the ensemble of models obtained. The method is particularly well suited to identify a class of models that fit geodetic data approximately equally well, allowing us to present and discuss a range of possible deformation mechanisms. This method can be applied to any study of postseismic deformation and represents a significant step towards directly inferring best-fit rheological parameters from geodetic data in a way that considers many deformation mechanisms simultaneously.

  20. The Surface Rupture of the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake and its Interaction with the 1892 Laguna Salada Rupture - Complex Fault Interaction in an Oblique Rift System (Invited)

    The 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake (Mw 7.2) demonstrates intimate mechanical interactions between two major fault systems that intersect within and along the western margin of the Sierra Cucapah in Baja California, Mexico. Rupture associated with 2010 earthquake produced ~4 m of dextral oblique slip and propagated through an imbricate stack of east-dipping faults. Toward the north, rupture consistently steps left to structurally deeper faults located farther west and in this manner passes through the core of the Sierra Cucapah to its western margin. The western margin of the Sierra Cucapah is defined by the Laguna Salada fault (LSF), which forms part of an active west-directed oblique detachment system recognized as the source of the large (M7+) February 22, 1892 earthquake. In the central Sierra Cucapah, the fault systems are separated by a narrow horst block, and here the 2010 event produced triggered slip on the LSF. These surface breaks follow the exact trace of the 1892 rupture, but their sense of slip (10-30 cm of pure normal displacement) differs radically from the 5 m of oblique dextral-normal slip produced by the 1892 event. Farther north, the narrow horst block is buried beneath strata of the northern Laguna Salada rift basin, and at this location, west-directed scarps of the LSF accommodate a significant component of dextral slip associated with the primary 2010 surface rupture. Thus, the two fault systems combine to accommodate oblique extension in the northern part of the range and likely have linking structures at fairly shallow depth. Newly identified paleo-scarps extend the known 1892 rupture length from 20 km to as much as 42 km, from the Canon Rojo fault to the Yuha Basin; consistent with a Mw 7.2 event and historical reports of MMI VII damage in San Diego. Both fault systems generate large earthquakes (>M7.2), with the west-directed LSF fault accommodating rapid subsidence in the adjacent basin during M7+ events at ~ 2Ka recurrence. Initial mapping of Late Quaternary deposits within the range suggests a much longer recurrence interval for the faults that ruptured in 2010.

    We evaluated spectral amplification factors of long-period ground motions (3 to 10 s) in the Los Angeles (LA) basin by computing Fourier spectral ratios of the basin sites with respect to the surrounding reference hard-rock sites from the Mw7.2 April 4, 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake records and presented period-specific (4, 6, 8 and 10 s) maps of amplification factors for the long periods. This earthquake was the first event providing many (236) high-quality recordings to study spatial variation of long-period amplification in the LA basin. We also tried numerical wave propagation simulations for two of the recent 3D seismic-velocity models for south California: SCEC (Southern California Earthquake Center) CVM (Community Velocity Model)-4.0 and CVM-H 6.2 to examine how these models account for the observed long-period amplification factors. Comparison of the period-specific maps of amplification factors between the observation and the simulation for the two velocity models shows that both CVM-4.0 and CVM-H 6.2 can roughly reproduce the observed amplification factors with the period range of 8 to 10 s in the LA basin. Concerning the shorter-period range (4 to 6 s), however, both of the two models leave more to be improved so that the observed amplification factors can be better simulated. We also find that CVM-4.0 has an advantage over CVM-H 6.2 in terms of the south-eastern part of the LA basin, because CVM-H 6.2 indicates non-observed large amplification there, while CVM-4.0 does not indicate the false amplification. For the period of 10 s, the largest amplification factor of about 5 was observed in the central part of the LA basin, which is well simulated in terms of good agreements between the observed and the simulated amplification factors. The simulation from the two velocity models also indicates the large amplification even in the San Gabriel (SG) valley, which disagrees with the observation. For 8 s, larger amplification factors of about 5 were observed not only in the central part of the LA basin but also in the SG valley, which are also well simulated by both of the two models. The CVM-H 6.2 simulation undershoots the observation in the western part of the LA basin, while CVM-4.0 can almost reproduce it. For 6 s, the largest amplification is observed in the western part of the basin (Manhattan Beach), although the amplification in the central part is also large. Around Manhattan Beach, the ground motions with this period are amplified by a factor of 10. There is significant discrepancy between the observation and the simulation for the two models in terms of the places where the largest amplification occurs. For the period of 4 s, the largest amplification factor of about 8 occurs in the central part of the LA basin. Again, the spatial pattern of amplification is basically failed to simulate by either of the two models.

    Summary Introduction and development Sensory systems show a topographic representation of the sensory epithelium in the central nervous system. In the auditory system this representation originates tonotopic maps. For the last four decades these changes in tonotopic maps have been widely studied either after peripheral mechanical lesions or by exposing animals to an augmented acoustic environment. These sensory manipulations induce plastic reorganizations in the tonotopic map of the auditory cortex. By contrast, acoustic trauma does not seem to induce functional plasticity at subcortical nuclei. Mechanisms that generate these changes differ in their molecular basis and temporal course and we can distinguish two different mechanisms: those involving an active reorganization process, and those that show a simple reflection of the loss of peripheral afferences. Only the former involve a genuine process of plastic reorganization. Neuronal plasticity is critical for the normal development and function of the adult auditory system, as well as for the rehabilitation needed after the implantation of auditory prostheses. However, development of plasticity can also generate abnormal sensation like tinnitus. Recently, a new concept in neurobiology so-called ‘neuronal stability’ has emerged and its implications and conceptual basis could help to improve the treatments of hearing loss. Conclusion A combination of neuronal plasticity and stability is suggested as a powerful and promising future strategy in the design of new treatments of hearing loss. PMID:19340783

    In this paper we show a new technique to analyze families of rankings. In particular we focus on sports rankings and, more precisely, on soccer leagues. We consider that two teams compete when they change their relative positions in consecutive rankings. This allows to define a graph by linking teams that compete. We show how to use some structural properties of this competitivity graph to measure to what extend the teams in a league compete. These structural properties are the mean degree, the mean strength and the clustering coefficient. We give a generalization of the Kendall's correlation coefficient to more than two rankings. We also show how to make a dynamic analysis of a league and how to compare different leagues. We apply this technique to analyze the four major European soccer leagues: Bundesliga, Italian Lega, Spanish Liga, and Premier League. We compare our results with the classical analysis of sport ranking based on measures of competitive balance.

    Sediments of the Sima de los Huesos vary greatly over distances of a few meters. This is typical of interior cave facies, and caused by cycles of cut and fill. Mud breccias containing human bones, grading upwards to mud containing bear bones, fill an irregular surface cut into basal marls and sands. The lack of bedding and the chaotic abundance of fragile speleothem clasts in the fossiliferous muds suggests that the deposit was originally a subterranean pond facies, and that after emplacement of the human remains, underwent vigorous post-depositional rotation and collapse and brecciation, caused by underlying bedrock dissolution and undermining. The fossiliferous deposits are capped by flowstone and guano-bearing muds which lack large-mammal fossils. U-series and radiocarbon dating indicates the capping flowstones formed from about 68 ka to about 25 ka. U-series analyses of speleothem clasts among the human fossils indicate that all are at, or close to, isotopic equilibrium (>350 ka). The distribution of U-series dates for 25 bear bones (154??66ka) and for 16 human bones (148??34 ka) is similar and rather broad. Because the human bones seem to be stratigraphically older than those of the bears, the results would indicate that most of the bones have been accumulating uranium irregularly with time. Electron spin resonance (ESR) analyses of six selected bear bones indicates dates of 189??28 ka, for which each is concordant with their corresponding U-series date (181??41 ka). Combined ESR and U-series dates for these samples yielded 200??4 ka. Such agreement is highly suggestive that uranium uptake in these bones was close to the early-uptake (EU) model, and the dates are essentially correct. Another three selected samples yielded combined ESR-U-series dates of 320??4 ka with a modeled intermediate-mode of uranium uptake. The dating results, therefore, seem to provide a firm minimum age of about 200 ka for the human entry; and suggestive evidence of entry before 320 ka. ?? 1997 Academic Press Limited.

    Multiple myeloma (MM) is a neoplastic disorder affecting elderly people. The treatment for all patients with MM was, for about 40 years, based on the combination of melphalan plus prednisone, with a very low rate of complete remissions and a survival that remained unacceptably low (about 36 months). Diverse factors, including comorbidity, performance status, decreased physiologic reserve, and potential undertreatment, contribute to these poor outcomes. Recently, however, the reduced treatment-related morbidity and mortality associated with autologous stem-cell transplantation and the availability of effective new drugs with acceptable toxicity, such as thalidomide, lenalidomide and bortezomib, have greatly modified the traditional treatment paradigms in older patients with MM, challenging, in some cases, the definition of elderly and rapidly transforming the traditional palliative treatments to a new global therapeutic strategy, with the final objective of significantly improving the quality and the duration of life for elderly people with this disease. In this review, we report updated data for the front-line treatment of MM in the elderly population, examining the role of new drugs combined with melphalan or their incorporation within more complex combinations, including other so-called conventional drugs such as (pegylated)-doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and dexamethasone. We also assess the role of autologous and allogeneic stem-cell transplantation with adjusted conditioning regimens in selected elderly patients. PMID:19663768

    A retrospective study of 37 patients with haematological malignancy (21 acute myeloid leukaemia, 11 acute lymphoid leukaemia, two lymphoma, two hairy cell leukaemia, one Hodgkin's disease) and histologically documented mucormycosis was conducted to evaluate the clinical characteristics and ascertain the factors which influenced the outcome from mycotic infection. Patients were admitted to 18 haematology divisions in tertiary care or university hospitals in Italy between 1987 and 1995. Fever, thoracic pain, dyspnoea and cough were the most frequent presenting symptoms. At the onset, 89% patients were neutropenic (neutrophil counts < 0.5 x 10(9)/l) with a median duration of previous neutropenia of 14 d (range 6-60). The most frequent sites of infection were lungs (81%), CNS (27%), sinus (16%), liver (16%) and orbital space (10%). Only three patients were asymptomatic. A correct in vivo diagnosis was made in only 13 (35%) patients. When performed, thoracic and cranial CT scan were the most useful diagnostic investigations. Despite the fact that 26 febrile patients were treated with empirical antifungal treatment, 28 of the 37 patients (76%) died from fungal infection at a median time of 17 d from the onset of clinical symptoms. Nine patients were cured by antifungal therapy plus, in five cases, radical surgery procedures. An analysis of factors influencing outcome demonstrated that the resolution of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia and prolonged treatment with amphotericin B and, if feasible, radical surgical debridement treatment, were significantly correlated with recovery from infection. Mucormycosis, a rare filamentous fungal infection that occurs most frequently in neutropenic acute leukaemia patients, is characterized by a high mortality rate. Extensive and aggressive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are essential to improve the prognosis in these patients. PMID:9375750

    We retrospectively studied a consecutive series of 100 patients with acute leukemia and aspergillosis to evaluate the clinical findings and risk factors for colonization of the central nervous system (CNS) by Aspergillus species. The diagnosis of CNS aspergillosis was made in 14 patients on the basis of the following criteria: neurological signs of CNS involvement (13 of 14 patients); cerebral CT scan findings (9 of 12); microbiological findings (6 of 12); and histological findings at autopsy (11 of 11). The majority of patients had severe neurological complications (i.e., hemiparesis or seizures), due mainly to brain abscesses or mycetomas. Autopsies were performed on 11 of 14 patients and provided evidence that CNS localization was secondary to invasive aspergillosis; in each case, the most likely primary focus of infection was the lung. Although all patients had received oral antimycotic prophylaxis and had received timely empirical antifungal treatment, they all died within a median time of 5 days from the onset of neurological symptoms. Analysis of the characteristics of patients with invasive aspergillosis did not reveal any difference between those with CNS localization and those without CNS localization. PMID:8879790

    A first order, second class leveling survey in the Mexicali Valley had been just finished in February 2010, for a project carried out by CICESE (Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education of Ensenada), IMTA (Mexican Institute of Water Technology) and CONAGUA (National Water Comission). Immediately after the M=7.2 earthquake the survey was repeated along 240 km of the profiles in the area of the Cerro Prieto pull-apart basin. The leveling started at the LN00 GPS monument in La Puerta. Overall, an uplift of about 30 cm towards the NE, along the 38 km line, in direction SW-NE is observed with larger gradient to the South of the area. Three subsidence bowls differ from this general pattern. One, south from Ejido Saltillo, with the relative subsidence of 19 cm (considering the displacement at LN00 as zero subsidence), probably reflects subsidence of the Saltillo-Guerrero graben; the second, with a subsidence of 23 cm, is situated south from Ejido Nuevo Leon and can be related to the subsidence triggered by the earthquake in the production area of Cerro Prieto IV. For the third one, with relative depth of 36 cm, situated close to Zacamoto, the southeastern limit cannot be determined, so only a comparison with other methods can explain the origin of this anomaly. All the subsidence bowls are associated with liquefaction observed in the area, with more liquefaction observed close to Zacamoto. Since 1996, CICESE has been operating a network of geotechnical instruments (REDECVAM) for continuous recording of deformation related to tectonic (seismic and interseismic) phenomena, as well as anthropogenic deformation caused by the deep fluid extraction at the Cerro Prieto Geothermal Field. The instruments are installed along the faults which limit the Cerro Prieto pull-apart basin at a distance from 8 to 15 km from the epicenter. Coseismic step-like groundwater level changes ranging from 0.4 to 5.0 meters were recorded at 4 wells in the Cerro Prieto Pull apart-basin equivalent to coseismic volumetric strain field, in the depth of the piezometers, of the order of 10-6 - 10-5. Instruments installed along the “continuation of the Cerro Prieto” fault recorded vertical slip of 6 cm, and inclination changes of ~700 microradians, with 10 cm vertical slip measured with a ruler at the surface, Instruments installed on the Saltillo fault recorded up to 3000 microradians change, and vertical and horizontal displacements, measured manually, were of the order of centimeters. The Morelia fault had about 30 cm vertical displacement measured manually. The displacement velocities observed by the instruments are much larger than the aseismic slip velocities or triggered slip velocities observed previously in this area. A comparison between leveling results and geotechnical observations suggests that the magnitude of deformation observed by the instruments is confirmed by the leveling only in the Saltillo-Guerrero graben, thus suggesting that the observed slip triggered on the Morelia and Cerro Prieto faults is shallow.

    A retrospective study on a consecutive series of 116 patients affected by acute leukaemia with documented pulmonary filamentous mycosis (FM) admitted between 1987 and 1992 to 14 tertiary-care hospitals in Italy was made in order to evaluate the characteristics of those patients who developed fatal massive haemoptysis. In 59/116 cases of pulmonary FM the infection was the principal cause of death and in 12 of these patients a massive haemoptysis was responsible for death. The diagnosis of FM infection was made ante-mortem in only four out of these 12 patients. The autopsy was performed in 11/12 patients and documented a FM infection. The mycetes isolated were: Hyphomycetes spp. (three patients), Mucorales spp. (two patients), Aspergillus spp. (seven patients). At the time of the massive haemoptysis the mean neutrophil count was 7.2 x 10(9)/l, and no patient had relevant thrombocytopenia (mean 184 x 10(9)/l, range 28-350) or coagulative abnormalities. The mean time which elapsed between resolution of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia (WBC < 10(9)/l) and occurrence of haemoptysis was 7 d. No signs or symptoms predictive of this fatal complication were identified. Massive haemoptysis can be the cause of death in patients with acute leukaemia and pulmonary FM which in the majority of patients was not diagnosed in vivo. This complication occurs most frequently shortly after the recovery from chemotherapy-induced aplasia. The mechanism of lesion is unknown, but it may involve the vascular tropism of FM and the release of leucocyte enzymes. Better preventive and therapeutic antifungal treatments are needed to avoid this serious, albeit rare, complication. PMID:7734347

    Antecedentes: Los SMD son enfermedades clonales de las células hematopoyéticas. La escala de riesgo más utilizada es el International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS). La CSA se ha empleado para tratar las citopenias en los SMD. Objetivo: Evaluar la respuesta hematológica e identificar factores predictivos de respuesta en adultos con SMD tratados con CSA. Material y métodos: Se incluyeron pacientes con SMD diagnosticados de acuerdo con los criterios de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS). Se usaron las escalas de riesgo IPSS, IPSS revisado (IPSS-R), WHO Prognostic Scoring System (WPSS) y WPSS revisado (WPSS-R). La dosis inicial de CSA fue de 5 mg/kg/día. Resultados: Cumplieron con los criterios de inclusión 32 pacientes. La mediana de edad fue de 56.5 años y la de seguimiento, de 3.1 años. Se obtuvo una tasa de respuesta hematológica del 56.2% y una independencia de trasfusión de concentrados eritrocitarios (CE) del 42.9%. La edad, la cifra de hemoglobina (Hb) y la escala WPSS en el momento del diagnóstico fueron factores independientes predictivos de respuesta para CSA. La supervivencia entre los pacientes con respuesta a CSA fue mayor que la de aquellos sin respuesta (p = 0.06). Conclusiones: La CSA indujo respuesta hematológica > 50% de pacientes con SMD, < 57 años de edad, Hb < 8 g/dl y WPSS bajo en el momento del diagnóstico. PMID:26089271

    Recently re-named as a sub-species of Mellinus arvensis, Mellinus arvensis obscurus Handlirsch 1888 was investigated ecologically and morphologically in Nepal, in order to underline the most important differences with the well known M. arvensis arvensis. Mellinus arvensis obscurus females nested in clumped aggregations on inclined plains at high altitudes, both on sunny bare soil and on a shaded grassy one. Beginning of monsoon season probably interfered with wasp activity, and females performed few provisioning flights during the day. Prey consisted of a broad range of Diptera, except for one case of a spider. Many females were observed not provisioning a nest but floating on the nesting site, and many intraspecific interactions suggested a high degree of usurpation attempts. At least one species of flies and two of ants probably acted as natural enemies of the wasp. Morphological observations on females showed that the Nepal population shares more similarities (shape of tergite I, body punctation) with the European populations than with the closer Japanese population; melanization is strong, according to west-east and altitudinal cline. The mature larva of M. arvensis obscurus Handlirsch is described, illustrated, and compared with the other mature larva of the genus. The differences between both larvae mainly lie in the presence/absence, and number or differentiation of integumental structures. We conclude that morphological traits are more important than ecological and behavioral ones in distinguishing M. arvensis obscurus from M. arvensis arvensis. (author) [Spanish] En el presente articulo se aportan los resultados y conclusiones de un estudio, llevado a cabo en Nepal, en el que se abordaron aspectos ecologicos, comportamentales y morfologicos (tanto del ultimo estado de la fase larvaria como del adulto) de Mellinus arvensis obscurus Handlirsch 1888. El principal objetivo del estudio radicaba en mostrar las principales diferencias que separan a esta subespecie de la bien estudiada subespecie nominal. Mellinus arvensis obscurus nidifica a gran altitud, en terreno inclinado, con y sin vegetacion, expuesto en mayor o menor medida al sol y en agregaciones muy compactas. Durante la estacion lluviosa la hembras llevan a cabo pocos vuelos de aprovisonamiento. Las presas pertenecen al orden de los dipteros, aunque, en una ocasion se observo el aporte de una arana. Gran numero de las interacciones intraespecificas observadas sugieren un alto grado de intentos de usurpacion de nidos. Los enemigos naturales mas sobresalientes pertenecen al orden de los dipteros y a la familia de los formicidos. Del estudio morfologico del adulto, mencionaremos que la foma del terguito 1 y la escultura del cuerpo, en las hembras de las poblaciones del Nepal, son mas semejantes a los de las hembras de las poblaciones europeas que no a los de las japonesas. De la fase larvaria se describe el ultimo estado larvario, a la vez que se compara con la otra larva madura ya descrita del genero. Las diferencias entre ambas larvas maduras radican en la presencia/ausencia, numero o diferenciacion de las estructuras tegumentarias. El estudio finaliza concluyendo que los rasgos morfologicos son mas importantes, que los aspectos ecologicos y comportamentales, a la hora de establecer una separacion entre las dos subespecies (author)

    Um interessante fenômeno lingüístico presente nas interações das pessoas bilíngues é a alternância de línguas. Neste trabalho, estamos investigando a alternância entre a língua portuguesa oral e a língua de sinais brasileira – Libras, numa mesma cadeia enunciativa, com o objetivo de identificar e analisar o uso dessa alternância na fala de uma criança e de um adulto (ambos ouvintes, filhos de pais surdos), interagindo em uma situação de bilinguismo intermodal, com interlocutores surdos e ouvintes. A alternância de línguas, nesse caso, ocorre quando se para de falar em português e se alterna para sinalizar. O presente trabalho se caracteriza como um estudo inicial, com análise qualitativa de dados. Fazem parte do nosso corpus nove sessões de interações em Libras e em português oral, gravadas em vídeo, que fazem parte do Projeto Desenvolvimento Bilíngue Bimodal da UFSC. Os dados revelam que as características da alternância de línguas pelo adulto e pela criança parecem ter semelhanças e diferenças. O sujeito adulto parece ter feito um uso da alternância mais preocupado com o curso da interação. A criança, por sua vez, não parece tê-la usado com propósitos pragmáticos específicos. Quanto à extensão das alternâncias, pode-se perceber que tanto a criança quanto o adulto utilizaram enunciados maiores do que uma única palavra isolada. O papel dos interlocutores parece ter sido decisivo nas interações aqui investigadas – especialmente nas do adulto, já que a criança ainda está em processo de tomada de consciência do papel do interlocutor na interação.

    1980-01-01

    This essay describes Kenneth Burke's theory of scapegoating as a major symbolic form of rhetorical action. Scapegoating is illustrated in Mayor Joseph Alioto's response to the 1974 Zebra murders in San Francisco. Drawing on the theoretical implications of symbolic form, the Mayor's rhetoric is used as proof of the social, symbolic character of rhetorical exigency.

    We explore the statistical laws behind the plurality voting system by investigating the election results for mayor held in Brazil in 2004. Our analysis indicate that the vote partition among mayor candidates of the same city tends to be "polarized" between two candidates, a phenomenon that can be closely described by means of a simple fragmentation model. Complex concepts like "government continuity" and "useful vote" can be identified and even statistically quantified through our approach.

    OBJETIVO Estimar la prevalencia del VIH en adultos de 15-49 años de edad en Tijuana, México - en la población general y en subgrupos de riesgo en el 2006. METODOS Se obtuvieron datos demográficos del censo Mexicano del 2005, y la prevalencia del VIH se obtuvo de la literatura. Se construyó un modelo de prevalencia del VIH para la población general y de acuerdo al género. El análisis de sensibilidad consistió en estimar errores estándar del promedio-ponderado de la prevalencia del VIH y tomar derivados parciales con respecto a cada parámetro. RESULTADOS La prevalencia del VIH es 0.54%(N = 4,347) (Rango: 0.22%–0.86%, (N = 1,750–6,944)). Esto sugiere que 0.85%(Rango: 0.39%–1.31%) de los hombres y 0.22%(Rango: 0.04%–0.40%) de las mujeres podrían ser VIH-positivos. Los hombres que tienen sexo con hombres (HSH), las trabajadoras sexuales usuarias de drogas inyectables (MTS-UDI), MTS-noUDI, mujeres UDI, y los hombres UDI contribuyeron las proporciones más elevadas de personas infectadas por el VIH. CONCLUSIONES El número de adultos VIH-positivos entre subgrupos de riesgo en la población de Tijuana es considerable, marcando la necesidad de enforcar las intervenciones de prevención en sus necesidades específicas. El presente modelo estima que hasta 1 en cada 116 adultos podrían ser VIH-positivos. PMID:19685824

  8. Repairing the Economic Ladder: A Transformative Investment Strategy To Reduce Poverty and Expand America's Middle Class

    NSDL National Science Digital Library

    2007-01-24

    How can the United States work to alleviate poverty and create work opportunities for its residents? This is by no means a simple problem, and this area of public policy was recently taken up by the United States Conference of Mayors. Under the direction of Los Angeles' mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, the Conference's Taskforce on Poverty, Work, and Opportunity created this 28-page document. Released in January 2007, the document draws on the observations of mayors around the country and their colleagues. The report notes that there are a number of opportunities, such as the fact that the globalization of trade and commerce has spurred demand for highly skilled labor and accountability in the educational systems of large cities. The document also spells out three primary investment strategies for the short and long term, including making substantial investments in the life-long education and skills development of tomorrow's workers.

Some of the people interviewed evaded our questions and many would not talk freely. This was mainly in New Gediz, where we were often referred to the mayor. Gediz has had three mayors since the earthquake, but the present mayor is fully informed on the aid which has arrived since the earthquake. He was generous with this information and his opinion Equally generous and gracious were the members of an informal association concerned with the revival of Old Gediz.

    Resumen Introducción La encefalitis por anticuerpos contra el receptor de NMDA (NMDAR) suele desarrollarse como un síndrome característico de evolución multifásica y diagnóstico diferencial amplio. Pacientes Presentamos a 2 pacientes diagnosticadas de encefalitis por anticuerpos NMDAR con un cuadro clínico típico, pero que inicialmente señaló otras etiologías. Discusión La afectación frecuente de pacientes jóvenes con manifestaciones psiquiátricas prominentes indica frecuentemente otras consideraciones diagnósticas; las más frecuentes son las encefalitis virales, los procesos psiquiátricos y el síndrome neuroléptico maligno. Varios síndromes previamente definidos de manera parcial o descriptiva en adultos y pacientes pediátricos probablemente eran casos de encefalitis anti-NMDAR. Conclusiones La encefalitis anti-NMDAR debe considerarse en pacientes jóvenes con manifestaciones psiquiátricas subagudas, movimientos anormales y alteraciones autonómicas. La caracterización clínica e inmunológica de esta enfermedad ha llevado a la identificación de nuevos anticuerpos que afectan a procesos de memoria, aprendizaje, conducta y psicosis. PMID:20964986

    Information management in large multicenter studies requires a specialized approach. The Estudo Longitudinal da Saúde do Adulto (ELSA-Brasil - Brazilian Longitudinal Study for Adult Health) has created a Datacenter to enter and manage its data system. The aim of this paper is to describe the steps involved, including the information entry, transmission and management methods. A web system was developed in order to allow, in a safe and confidential way, online data entry, checking and editing, as well as the incorporation of data collected on paper. Additionally, a Picture Archiving and Communication System was implemented and customized for echocardiography and retinography. It stores the images received from the Investigation Centers and makes them available at the Reading Centers. Finally, data extraction and cleaning processes were developed to create databases in formats that enable analyses in multiple statistical packages. PMID:24346726

    Introducción y desarrollo En los próximos 50 años vamos a presenciar un incremento significativo de la población mayor de 65 años y por lo tanto va a aumentar, considerablemente, el número de individuos con riesgo de desarrollar demencias neurodegenerativas, especialmente la enfermedad de Alzheimer (EA). Las estrategias actuales de tratamiento farmacológico y no farmacológico se han centrado en las fases sintomáticas de esta enfermedad y, gradualmente, vamos teniendo una mayor comprensión de los posibles factores de riesgo del síndrome clínico. Conclusiones Los estudios de neuroimagen han sido muy útiles para mostrar los cambios estructurales del envejecimiento normal y patológico, así como también los factores de riesgo para la EA. Los tratamientos apropiados de los factores de riesgo y su posible combinación con tratamientos específicos para la EA podrían prolongar el período presintomático de la EA y, por tanto, mejorar la calidad de vida y disminuir la carga para el paciente, la familia y la sociedad.

    In any given week, the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) might host a visiting scholar from Ghana speaking on agricultural subsidies, a panel of journalists talking about freedom of the press, and a conversation on the upcoming mayoral elections in London. It's part of what the organization does, and now visitors outside of London can experience some of these proceedings. This page contains the LSE's videos and podcasts, which serve as an introduction to its vast holdings. First-time visitors can scan through talks like "Dial M for Murdoch" and "The 2012 London Mayoral Election" to get started. Visitors can continue on to look over the LSE's iTunesU offerings, YouTube channel, and RSS feeds. Other great offerings here include "Capturing the Cut: On the Invention of Medical Illustration" and The Burning Issue series, which addresses a current controversy or urgent human wellbeing issue.

    Este trabajo describe la situación de la bioética en Nicaragua, caracterizando las circunstancias y el contexto de las actividades de educación médica y las unidades prestadoras de servicios de salud. El desarrollo de un nuevo modelo de atención integral en salud, la implementación de políticas de salud que garanticen a la población el mayor acceso y gratuidad a los servicios, y los cambios acontecidos en los cuidados médicos, debidos en parte al reconocimiento creciente de una mayor autonomía de los pacientes y al uso creciente de nuevas tecnologías médicas, hace que se presenten algunas limitantes y dilemas en las unidades asistenciales y entre el personal de salud. La bioética en Nicaragua tiene un desarrollo incipiente: no está institucionalizada ni se han previsto los mecanismos formales que permitan resolver los problemas éticamente complejos, por lo tanto, constituye un gran reto por parte de las instituciones educativas y rectoras de la salud.

  20. Bikes, helmets, and public health: decision-making when goods collide.

    How ought public officials address policy choices that entail trade-offs between desirable public health goods? Increasing cycling improves public health both by promoting physical activity and by decreasing vehicle use, thus reducing vehicular emissions. Proponents of bicycle helmets argue that, used properly, they protect individual cyclists; however, there is concern that mandating helmet use may result in a decrease in cycling. In 2012, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg opposed a bicycle helmet mandate, concerned that it would have a negative impact on the city's cycling rate, which he had sought to increase. The mayor did not explain his rationale, leaving constituents unsure why he opposed the proposal. This case study underscores the challenge of creating public policy in the context of competing public health goods. PMID:24825196
