A study of the potential of training to be transferred to the workplace

In the case of the training of public servants in Andalusia, the study showed that trainers used more frequently those training interventions aiming at ensuring the usefulness of content training at the workplace of the employees and the learning of training content within the classroom. As mentioned above, both elements are powerful transfer factors but they may not be enough to ensure the transfer of training to workplace. In addition, it is necessary that trainers use teaching interventions that, as pointed out by Hutchins and Burke (2007), support integration of the knowledge and/or skills acquired at the workplace, since learning transfer implies learning outside the classroom, learning at the workplace (Eraut, 2004). Nevertheless, those strategies that allow learning to extend beyond the classroom were used less frequently. The same is true regarding those practices aiming at individualizing training in order to take into account the existing differences among attendees or aiming at increasing the capacity of employees to learn from practice itself. These lesser-used training interventions are strategies which support the transfer process of learning outcomes to specific circumstances under which learners work.

Bioprospecting study of cultivable prokaryotic fraction from Manaure solar saltern, La Guajira, Colombia

Bioprospecting study of cultivable prokaryotic fraction from Manaure solar saltern, La Guajira, Colombia

The study of marine microorganism has been increasing due to their biological potential and their biotechnological applications (Giddings & Newman, 2015). Among the marine environment, the Vibrionaceae family is widely distributed (F. Thompson, Austin, & Swings, 2006), and within this family, the most abundant species belong to genus Vibrio which has been widely recognized for their pathogenic relevance (F. Thompson et al., 2004). However, during the past decade, the production of bioactive molecules interesting for medical uses and biotechnological applications has been described for different species belonging to this family (Mansson et al., 2011). One of the limitations to develop studies about these species is the ambiguity of taxonomic assignments using the traditional 16S rRNA gene sequence approach, which have led to propose the use of other genes (ftsZ, gapA, gyrB, mreB, pyrH, recA, rpoA, topA and fur) for Multi-Locus Sequencing Analysis (MLSA) to solve this problem (Machado, Cardoso, Giubergia, Rapacki, & Gram, 2017). However, due to the significant improvements in genome sequencing, different methods of phylogenetic analysis and species circumscription based on whole-genome analysis have been developed such as the calculation of the average nucleotide identity (ANI) and the tetranucleotide signature correlation index (Richter & Rosselló-Mora, 2009). The ANI value is currently the best in silico parameter equivalent to the former DNA-DNA hybridization, the gold standard technique for prokaryotic species circumscription at the genomic level (Richter & Rosselló-Mora, 2009). An ANI value of >94% of similarity is considered the threshold for circumscribe a prokaryotic species (Richter & Rosselló-Mora, 2009). Moreover, the tetranucleotide signature correlation index (TETRA) compares the frequency of occurrence of the tetranucleotide sequences within a genome, both parameters must have a correlation and help to clarify if different strains belong to the same species (Richter & Rosselló-Mora, 2009). These parameters can be calculated in the web platform JSpeciesWS against a database with more than 32.000 prokaryotic genomes (Richter, Rosselló-Móra, Oliver Glöckner, & Peplies, 2015).

TítuloAnalysis of transferred earth potentials in grounding systems: a BEM numerical approach

TítuloAnalysis of transferred earth potentials in grounding systems: a BEM numerical approach

Generally, we consider two main cases of transferred po- tentials: a) the trasference of the Ground Potential Rise to distant points of the grounding site by means of a con- ductor directly linked to the earthing system; and b), the transference of a fraction of the Ground Potential Rise to distant points of the grounding site by the existence of conductors close to the earthing grid but not directly con- nected to it (these conductors are energized to a fraction of the GPR when an eddy current is derived to the grounding grid during a fault condition). It is important to remark the difference between both situations: in one case, all con- ductors attain the GPR, and in the second situation, the conductors not connected to the grounding grid attain a fraction of the GPR. In both cases, the potential distribu- tion on the earth surface will be significantly modified. And this could imply a serious safety problem when it affects to non-protected areas [11].

Psychophysiological consequences arising from the stress of everyday life and work activities

Psychophysiological consequences arising from the stress of everyday life and work activities

spread among professionals who reported having a medical condition. It is well known that for greater therapeutic ef- fectiveness, non-pharmacological therapies must be incor- porated into treatment. So, we asked the nurses about walk- ing, music, sports, leisure and complementary therapies as potential ways of dealing with stressful situations. Most reported that they “ rarely” or “ never” enjoy these benefits. In general, these responses seemed to be related to the over- load that nurses suffer in the workplace. Such behaviour, however, is contradictory for healthcare professionals who know the benefits of health and quality of life related to ad- equate nutrition and self-care.

Analytical tools to study the criticality at the outer boundary of potential centers

Analytical tools to study the criticality at the outer boundary of potential centers

X to study the bifurcation of critical periodic orbits from its outer boundary Π, which becomes a polycycle in S 2 . The polycycle consists of regular trajectories and singular points with a hyperbolic sector, which after the desingularization process give rise to saddles and saddle-nodes. It is here where the use of normal forms of such singular points permit to obtain an asymptotic development of the period function near Π. Computing the first non-vanishing coefficient in this development is the key tool in the mentioned series of papers in order to determine which parameters are local regular values of the period function at Π. On the contrary, the vector fields that we deal with in the present paper are not polynomial, but only analytic on some open subset U of R 2 . We compactify the set P in order to define its outer boundary Π in case that P is unbounded, but we can not compactify the vector field X itself. Furthermore, even in the case of a bounded period annulus, it may happen that the vector field X is not defined at all the points in Π. For this reason the approach that we follow must be completely different. It is also to be noted that once we have determined the local bifurcation values of the period function at the outer boundary, we aim to bound its criticality. This is also a novelty with respect to the quoted papers previously.

Session-RPE for quantifying the load of different youth basketball training sessions

Session-RPE for quantifying the load of different youth basketball training sessions

However, in youth basketball training, no study has investigated the reliability of the session-RPE method by considering the Edwards approach as a reference, also in relation to different durations of training sessions and specific workouts. In particular, the basketball players competing into the Under-17 category probably represent the most crucial and complex age stage to effectively develop physical and tactical aspects, strengthening the need of session-RPE to practically and regularly monitor individual ITLs. Therefore, the present study aimed to evaluate whether the session-RPE method can be a valid method to monitor ITLs performed during different training conditions in youth basketball. Specifically, it was hypoth- esized that: i) larger correlations (r >.7, P < .05) would emerge between session-RPE and Edwards’ HR-based methods for the entire sample of all and each individual players’ training sessions; ii) the Edwards values reported by male Italian Under 17 basketball players would be affected by durations of training sessions (i.e., < 80 minutes; ≥ 80 minutes) and workout training portion within a training session (i.e., 10-20% and 20-30% of warm-up; 0-35% and 35-70% of physical training, 0-21% and 21-42% of technical workout, 0-30% and 30-60% of tactical workout, and 0-13% and 13-26% of game workout); and iii) moderate (r between .3 and .7, P < .05) to large correlations would emerge between session-RPE and Edwards’ heart rate-based methods for each parameter related to specific durations of training sessions and workout training por- tions within a single session.

A comparative study between two models of active cluster crystals

A comparative study between two models of active cluster crystals

deeply affected by the strength of the active force which determines its size, until producing an unstable region where at first clusters can exchange particles and then destroy and reform continuously in time. Finally, for large enough self-propulsion, the crystal melts. We have checked in specific cases that such a phenomenology is not restricted to our choice of interparticle potential and we expect it to be present in a large class of soft-core interactions. We explore two different modelizations of the active force, both well-known in the literature, exploiting analogies and differences between them. Besides some differences in the particular parameter values at which transitions occur, the only feature which distinguishes the two descriptions is the cluster shape: for some values of the control parameters they display a central hole in the ABP case, but not in the AOUP. We have explained in detail the reasons for this difference.

Effects of integrating video based feedback into a Teaching Games for Understanding soccer unit

Effects of integrating video based feedback into a Teaching Games for Understanding soccer unit

Notwithstanding some of the clear benefits of some video-based technologies, there remain a number of key challenges for teachers. For example, finance, training and lack of time were some of the key reasons cited by teachers in the study by Woods et al. (2008). In addition, Casey and Jones (2011) noted challenges with preparation time and time needed to ensure that the system being used worked, as well as the need to ensure the pupils did not get lost in the ‘marvel’ of the technology (p. 55) and consequently forget the need to learn the content being taught by the teacher. One further challenge for teachers noted by Perlman, Forrest and Pearson (2012) was the assertion of the lack of empirical attention paid to the integration of video-based technologies to teach pupils about tactical awareness when playing games. They noted that while there were numerous practitioner articles on technology integration and the use gaming technologies within fitness related components and the benefits of this (e.g. Banville & Poliki, 2009), there were few reports of studies that paid attention to teaching tactics within a physical education context. Perlman and colleagues’ case study of five ‘experts’ in physical education pedagogy who engaged in a weekly 45- minute game play session for a total of 14 weeks using the Nintendo Wii gaming console demonstrated that gaming technologies provided these participants with increased opportunities for cognitive understanding (i.e., decision-making). Although these findings were positive, Perlman et al. (2012) noted that some ‘dissonance between execution of sport specific skills between authentic…and virtual games’ (p. 91), as well as a degree of restrictiveness where the ‘gaming technologies controlled certain movement of the players with little involvement of the participant’ (p. 92). Irrespective of some of the aforementioned challenges, there is clearly scope to investigate the potential benefits of video-based feedback on tactical learning and development, and how video-based feedback affects game performance outcomes within a physical education context. The benefits of adding video technology to the learning process within games and GCAs is supported as Gréhaigne et al. (2010) who argue that “the use of video films and debates-of-ideas, and soliciting mechanisms acquired during practice, is likely to facilitate the acquisition of these operations and their re-utilization in actual game play” (p. 266).

The effect of dictionary training in the teaching of English as a foreign language

The effect of dictionary training in the teaching of English as a foreign language

Our objective, therefore, was to see to what extent systematic dictionary training could improve not only students’ knowledge about their dictionaries, but also their linguistic competence in second language skills and could contribute to autonomous learning. In fact, we agree with Cowie (1983) that there are many aspects of vocabulary learning that can be taught and/or studied through a dictionary. It can be a learning strategy for the study of lexis. He points out that “[a] dictionary, used properly, can tell you much more than how to spell words. It can extend and improve your knowledge of English far beyond the range of any textbook” (Cowie 1983: 135). This idea of the dictionary as a learning tool is what we wanted to introduce to our students so they would benefit from the amount of information at their disposal. We also wanted to change their idea that a dictionary was merely a book to consult on specific occasions.

TítuloA computer aided design system for the analysis of transferred potentials in earthing systems

In this work we present a CAD system based on this BEM numerical formulation for the analysis of a common problem in electrical engineering practice, that is, the existence of transferred potentials in a grounding installation [1]. The transfer of po- tentials between the grounding area to outside points by buried conductors, such as communication or signal circuits, neutral wires, pipes, rails, or metallic fences, may produce serious safety problems [2]. Thus, in this paper we summaryze the BE nu- merical approach and we present a new approach for the transferred potential analysis. Finally, we show some examples by using the geometry of real grounding systems.

Escala de actitudes hacia potenciales víctimas de bullying: elaboración y evidencias de validez y fiabilidad

Escala de actitudes hacia potenciales víctimas de bullying: elaboración y evidencias de validez y fiabilidad

The participants were given a booklet containing questions on demographic variables (gender, age, religion, and religiosity) and the Attitudes towards Potential Targets of Bullying Scale (APTBS). The APTBS was developed by the authors based on a literature review, being composed by 25 items that assess the beliefs, feelings, or behaviours (attitudes) towards individuals who exhibit characteristics or particularities that may turn them into potential victims of bullying (e.g., “A man who does not enter into a fight at least once in his life is odd”; “A person with an ugly voice or face is horrible”). These items are answered on a six-point scale ranging from 1 (totally disagree) to 6 (totally agree). Then, the semantic validity of the experimental version was checked with a sample of 15 sixth-year students to establish whether they could understand the items and whether the proposed response scale was adequate.

Dynamic model of a ball bearing, vibration analysis

Dynamic model of a ball bearing, vibration analysis

associated to an asynchronous machine, for the utilisation of a numeric model that might be found in the existing literature. This machine will be adapted itself from the electromagnetic torque transmission to the other parts of the kinematic chain. This model will have to incorporate a minimum of characteristics associated to the inner and outer races as well as to the rolling elements and their cage. This model has been thought to be incorporated to an existing electrical machine model developed in the laboratory itself. The numeric model proposed will be experimentally validated in a test bench that belongs to the laboratory and which is instrumented with several sorts of sensors (mechanic and electromagnetic), under normal conditions and with faults too. The different obtained results will be justified through waveform of the studied signals and their respective frequency spectrum.

widely distributed across all socioeconomic levels. While inequalities still remain in this area, they are much less profound than with other technologies; its distribution varies between 97% in high SES and 82.8% in low SES [6, 7]. Because of this technological explosion, mobile health (mHealth), or “medical and public health practice supported by mobile devices” [8], has great potential in many health areas such as promotion and prevention [9]. Overall interest in mobile health is widespread. The World Health Organization’s (WHO) report on mHealth in 2011 [8] states that mobile health strategies exist in at least 75% of the countries that belong to the WHO in each region. According to the European Commission in its program “Digital Agenda for Europe”, mHealth has the potential to reduce inequalities regarding the deliv- ery of health services, to empower patients to control their own health, and to improve the cost-effectiveness of health care delivery [10].

Effects of Rio de Janeiro Ar Livre program on the autonomy of octogenarian elderly women

Beginning with the subject standing, the examiner marked the mean point of the subject’s thigh (half distance between the kneecap apex and the iliac crest), using a metallic and flexible measuring tape of the Sanny brand (São Paulo, Brazil). Afterwards, this point was transferred to a Sanny stadiometer (São Paulo, Brazil), which was kept next to the subject throughout the evaluation. Starting from the standing position, at the examiner’s command, the subject should march in place for two minutes. To be taken into account, the steps should be performed with the knee reaching at least the point determined by the stadiometer. Time was measured using a Vollo VL237 chronometer (São Paulo, Brazil).
