El sentido de la vida: factor protector de ansiedad y depresión / Sense of life: protective factor of anxiety and depression

Currently the human lives in a world of haste, ephemeral pleasure and senseless consumerism, where values seem to have passed into the background, this way of life has generated psychopathologies such as anxiety and depression, because there is an existential vacuum. It takes society's meaning to life to achieve happiness and protect us from anxiety and depression. Therefore, we will observe the differences in the mea- ning of life according to different variables: sex, age, level of studies, place of residence, social class, religion and its practice, the vicarious experience of death, the own expe- rience close to death; in a sample of patients with anxiety and depression. Operationally, it is about measuring the construct "meaning of life" and estimating its influence on anxiety and depression disorders, through the PIL inventory, conducting a quantitative research. The results show that several are the predictors of the meaning of life and pro- tective of psychopathologies. So personal well-being, satisfaction with life, life charged with meaning protects us from anxiety and depression.

Autoestima y sentido de la vida en estudiantes universitarios / Self-esteem and sense of life in university students

Autoestima y sentido de la vida en estudiantes universitarios / Self-esteem and sense of life in university students

El presente trabajo pretende evidenciar el grado de asociación entre la autoestima y el sentido de la vida, así como el peso modulador de la variable sexo. Se han utilizado dos instrumentos estandarizados para la evaluación empírica de los constructos: la Escala de Autoestima de Rosenberg (EAR) y el Purpose-In-Life Test (PIL). Dichas pruebas fueron aplicadas a una muestra de 106 universitarios con un rango de edad entre 18 y 26 años. Los resultados encontrados indican que, en cuanto al género, no aparecen diferencias significativas en relación a los niveles de autoestima, como tampoco en el sentido de la vida. En relación a los niveles de autoestima y sentido de la vida se encontró una correlación positiva significativa entre ambos indicadores, siendo la autoestima sana una condición necesaria, aunque no suficiente, para la presencia del sentido vital.

Resiliencia, ansiedad y sentido de la vida en estudiantes universitarios / Resilience, anxiety and sense of life in university students

El presente trabajo pretende evidenciar el grado de asociación entre la resiliencia, la ansiedad y el sentido de la vida, así como constatar las diferencias entre estas variables en dos grupos de edad y conocer la influencia de la variable sexo. Se han utilizado tres instrumentos estandarizados para la evaluación empírica de los constructos: la escala de resiliencia de Connor y Davidson (CD-RISC), el Cuestionario de Ansiedad Estado- Rasgo (STAI) y el Purpose-In-Life Test (PIL). Dichas pruebas fueron aplicadas a una muestra de 215 estudiantes universitarios con un rango de edad entre 18 y 31 años. Los resultados encontrados indican que, en cuanto al género, no aparecen diferencias significativas en relación a ninguna de las variables objeto de estudio. En relación a los niveles de resiliencia y sentido de la vida, se encontró una correlación positiva signifi- cativa entre ambos indicadores, así como una relación negativa entre la ansiedad y las otras dos variables investigadas.

Educación, sentido y sin-sentido / Education, sense and no-sense

Educación, sentido y sin-sentido / Education, sense and no-sense

Sense has been a key issue for modern philosophy, especially from the critical opinions on Kantian’s formalism and the subordination of the individual subject to the Absolute Idea in Hegel’s theory, or the same subordination to collective materiality in Marxism. Sense became a decisive and fundamental concept in existential philo- sophy, and then it was abandoned by structuralist and poststructu- ralist theories. Today, postmodern times reveal the impossibility of creating sense and relating it to ethical values: this expresses a strong crisis in western world societies, which, on the basis of anti- foundational ways of thinking, have had great difficulty to justify a collective ethics as the minimal social space of shared ideas in which plural points of view can exist. In this article, the central pre- mise is that schools are one of the institutional spaces in which the sense of life can be achieved and effectively realized.

Análisis del sentido de la vida en personas con discapacidad física / Analysis of the sense of the life in people with physical disability

Análisis del sentido de la vida en personas con discapacidad física / Analysis of the sense of the life in people with physical disability

The present research is focused on the most common levels of the Sense of life on subjects by physical disability, and to analyze the possible differences depending on the age, gender and life satisfaction. To do this, the Purpose in Life test (PIL) was applied to 128 people with physical disability, with ages between 19 and 30 years (M=24.62; DT=3.03). A quantitative methodology is used with a transversal, descriptive and analytical design. The main results show that the subjects of the age range between 19- 24 years have the highest levels in all the factors, finding significant differences, only, in the value of life. In relation to gender, women show higher scores with respect to men, showing significant differences in all factors. Attending to life satisfaction, people with physical disability are quite satisfied in life value and ability of meaning, and something in goals and responsibility, revealing significant differences in life value and goals and responsibility. In the comparative analysis with subjects without disabilities, significant differences are evidenced in all the factors, being the subjects with physical disability those that obtain the highest averages. In the discussion, the implications are analyzed in light of the results found, underlining the relevant role of the Sense of life in the development and management of situations with physical disability.

Subtitles for the cinematographic version of sense and sensibility

Subtitles for the cinematographic version of sense and sensibility

Although we have explained some of the most important elements and constraints of the subtitling technique, let us clarify that there are still other significant aspects that – as motioned before- require further and profound knowledge and experience, which is why we haven’t applied them in this project. But most importantly is the lack of more reliable sources of information (most of which are found in the Internet) including the technical equipment or software to make subtitles. Therefore, the present translation exercise will elucidate only the basic notions of translation for subtitles and leave out aspects such as timing and synchronization.

Annotation of regular polysemy: an empirical assessment of the underspecified sense

Annotation of regular polysemy: an empirical assessment of the underspecified sense

The first step in dealing with figurative language is identifying and isolating the different senses words can manifest. Keeping a slightly artificial division between linguistic theory and state of the art, we have covered how this has been addressed from the theory in lexical semantics in Chapter 2. This section covers the representation of regular polysemy in lexical knowledge bases (LKB). As Markert and Nissim (2002b) note, print dictionaries only include con- ventional metonymic senses, but metonymies are productive and potentially open-ended, and even the coverage of conventional metonymies is not system- atic. Moreover, the example lists provided in the literature on regular polysemy are often synthetic, clear-cut examples that seem to oversimplify the distinction between literal and metonymic. Some LKBs explicit the relation of polysemous senses by links between words, while others do not include these relations.

Education and quality of life of senior citizens

Education and quality of life of senior citizens

Thus, we suggest to use the available resources of the territory so to vary and enrich the activities and, at the same time, to enhance motivation, proposing entertain- ing and practical activities and stimulating personal creativity and the pleasure of dis- covering new things. We must always keep in mind that the right approach is a natural approach: we should promote inter-generational exchanges, including knowledge of new technologies, network resources and the pleasure of sharing these notions with all the others. These personal exchanges will work as a linking bridge between genera- tions among participants of all ages, helping to prevent and erase existing prejudices. We suggest to get in touch and ask the cooperation of Clubs dealing with card games, chess, entertaining math, cross words, social games, poetry and prose reading, music schools etc. You could also ask the population to contribute, bring- ing to a collection point suggestions, ideas of games, quizzes, drills, pictures, maps, proposals which will be evaluated and put into practice after being readapted to the situation. The setting up of all these materials will require great care and attention.

Autobiologies: Making sense of engagements with healthcare technologies

Autobiologies: Making sense of engagements with healthcare technologies

Our analysis of these videos revealed a form of storytelling very similar to that of Lone Frank’s where users were narrating a sense of self-making through biology; that is, they were telling autobiologies. In the spitting videos for example, we found testers engaging in forms of biological practice that were portrayed as scientific experimentation. In the interpretation of results videos, testers would weave their own understandings of biological inheritance into the stories, through family tales and experiences of illness and disease. These were stories told at the molecular level, stories which concerned genetic markers, alleles and ribonucleic acids, as well as interwoven family histories, which thread like wayfaring lines (Ingold, 2007) through the narrative compositions. The format for telling these stories was important too. The YouTube stories were digital narratives, told, uploaded, shared and discussed through the internet, via webcams (Miller & Sinanan, 2013) and other devices. These new spaces for storytelling lend themselves to new configurations for self-expression that encompass images, sounds, hyperlinks, text in the form of comments and replies, and other online features.

Sensory Shelf Life of Dulce de Leche.pdf

Sensory Shelf Life of Dulce de Leche.pdf

The objectives of this research were to determine the sensory cutoff points for dulce de leche (DL) critical descriptors, both for defective off-flavors and for storage changes in desirable attributes, and to estimate the shelf life of DL as a function of storage temperature. The critical descriptors used to determine the cutoff points were plastic flavor, burnt flavor, dark color, and spreadability. Linear correlations between sensory ac- ceptability and trained panel scores were used to deter- mine the sensory failure cutoff point for each descriptor. To estimate shelf life, DL samples were stored at 25, 37, and 45 ° C. Plastic flavor was the first descriptor to reach its cutoff point at 25 ° C and was used for shelf- life calculations. Plastic flavor vs. storage time followed zero-order reaction rate. Shelf-life estimations at differ- ent temperatures were 109 d at 25 ° C, 53 d at 37 ° C, and 9 d at 45 ° C. The activation energy, necessary to calculate shelf lives at different temperatures, was 14,370 ± 2080 cal/mol.

The public administration and sense of welfare for progress

The public administration and sense of welfare for progress

With this article, we intend to review and analyze the benefits of modernization and / or reform of the public administration; in this sense, the objective is to reflect the changes that can be made in public administration with the purpose of generating well-being in society. This article arises from the unfavorable image of the public administration in the countries of Latin America and the difficulties of these to generate welfare for progress. Become imperative to define and differentiate progress and well-being in order to generate effective and sustainable changes, that allow establishing mechanisms that conceive well- being to society through the improvement of their processes and that help to create a state of satisfaction in people through a management efficient public, with trained human resources and a service aimed at achieving results based on ethical principles and a sense of belonging in order to reorient public policy.

Quality of life in Argentina (1970)

Quality of life in Argentina (1970)

demographic and environmental relevant situations. Consequently, the present work proposes an index of Quality of Life from different sources of data for the provinces of the Argentine Republic for the moment of the Sixth National Population Census carried out in the year 1970. In spite of the limitations that this census presents , the regional inequalities in Argentina were very high since the degree of inequality is important between the different jurisdictions. If the extreme values of the index are taken, the difference between the best and worst relative situation (City of Bs As and Jujuy, respectively) reaches 7.68 points.

FIRST CENSUS OF MARINE LIFE 2010

FIRST CENSUS OF MARINE LIFE 2010

Exploring diversity in all realms of Planet Ocean, Census of Marine Life explorers newly observed mil- lions of specimens. More than 1,200 of the collected specimens are now formally described as new species, while 5,000 more are probably new to science and awaiting description and addition to the marine cat- alog of diversity. Globally, the collective efforts of all marine biologists drawing on specimens collected over many decades are adding more than 1,600 marine species per year. Partnering with other groups and ag- gregating information, Census scientists affirmed the probable existence of about 250,000 named, known species and helped to make an authoritative, accessible list of these now approaching 200,000 and to devel- op Web pages for more than 80,000. They sequenced DNA identifiers for more than 35,000 species that make possible a compact new view of the relatedness of all marine life. Capturing DNA for tens of thou- sands of kinds of marine microbes, Census researchers estimated that up to a billion exist. While at least a million kinds of life earning the rank of species are es- timated to live in the ocean, no firm basis exists for a range or upper limit. Of all the life that survives in the oceans, smaller forms appear to outnumber larger forms by 100 to 1,000 times. The oceans burgeon with discovered and undiscovered diversity.
