Accidents in farming in Santa Fe province, Argentina

Half of respondents had had at least one day of absence from work averaging two months off work. Livestock activity is known to yield a high loss of working days (SRT 2005). These figures were found to be significantly higher than those reported in rural veterinarians in the region under study (Tarabla, 2009). The latter may be attributable to a real difference between the two populations and/ or an underestimation among veterinarians. Self- treatments and continuous working even when suffering severe injuries have been previously reported among veterinary practitioners (Landerscaper et al., 1988; Wilkins et al., 2009; Tarabla, 2009). The location of lesions was con- sistent with results reported in farm workers in Argentina (SRT 2007). Risk factors associated with accidents were similar to those reported outside Latin America (Low et al., 1996; Hwang et al., 2000; Pickett et al., 2003; Sprince et al., 2003; Stallones and Beseler, 2003; Dimich-Ward, 2004; Hagel et al., 2004; McCurdy et al., 2004), with the exception of activity within the farm. Employees and casual workers were 2.7 times more likely to suffer occupational accidents that owners and managers. In the area under study, fieldwork is most often carried out by employees and casual workers. Men had 2.5 times more risk of accidents than women. On dairy farms, men are generally responsible for the toughest tasks such as disposition of abortions and corpses, neutering, vaccinations, handling tools and operating agri- cultural machinery, while women are responsible for managing the home, pets, poultry, milking and feeding calves.

CABE FASEN Report: Screening of Disorders Associated with Iodine Deficiency in the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina (2007)

CABE FASEN Report: Screening of Disorders Associated with Iodine Deficiency in the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina (2007)

En este trabajo, consideramos la deficiencia nu- tricia de iodo acorde al nivel de ioduria. Tomando como referencia estos valores críticos para la edad de los alumnos (aportados por Bernatené, evaluador de todas las iodurias), se observó que en la provincia de Santa Fe menos del 3 % de los alumnos mostró leve deficiencia nutricional de iodo; todos los casos se registraron en las localidades del norte provincial. En esta zona, entre 40 y 50 % presentan niveles nu- tricios óptimos de iodo; sin embargo, en el sur de la provincia los registros de ioduria señalaron que 3 de cada 4 escolares tienen excesivos registros de ioduria. Respecto de la cantidad de iodo en la sal doméstica que aportaron los alumnos, nuestro monitoreo reportó que el contenido es normal en casi todas las muestras evaluadas. Teniendo en cuenta la línea de corte del 10 % que fija el IC- CID (36) como valor óptimo, podemos observar que

Dinámicas socio-demográficas del Cluster de la Maquinaria Agrícola de la provincia de Santa Fe, Argentina / Socio-demographic Dynamics of the Agricultural Machinery Cluster in the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina

Dinámicas socio-demográficas del Cluster de la Maquinaria Agrícola de la provincia de Santa Fe, Argentina / Socio-demographic Dynamics of the Agricultural Machinery Cluster in the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina

En el presente artículo se aborda un estudio de caso específico sobre tres localidades (Amstrong, Las Parejas y Las Rosas) que componen el Cluster Empresarial CIDETER de la Maquinaria Agrícola (CECMA), ubicadas en la provincia de Santa Fe (Argentina), con el objetivo de indagar en algunas características relacionadas a la cuestión socio-demográfica, aspectos desatendidos en los estudios de la geografía económica. De acuerdo a la literatura específica en los estudios vinculados a los clusters se presentan las variables que explican las condiciones de la productividad a escala local -vinculados a variables cuantitativas-, restándole importancia a otras dinámicas, específicamente a las sociales. De esta manera, se torna imperante abrir el debate sobre la exploración de otras variables (no exclusivamente económicas), que permiten sondear los alcances del desarrollo económico en otras áreas que se encuentran vinculadas tangencialmente, aunque con algunos impactos, sobre los procesos productivos (Moulaert y Sekia, 2001; Moulaert y Nussbaumer, 2005; Rainne, 2008; Fernandez y Vigil, 2006).

Health care providers' opinions on abortion: a study for the implementation of the legal abortion public policy in the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina

Health care providers' opinions on abortion: a study for the implementation of the legal abortion public policy in the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina

access were due to multiple factors, including a deficient knowledge of the legal framework, a narrow understan- ding of current legal indications, a weak conscience regarding professional responsibility, a lack of running policies, and a social and political debate highly focused on the legal reform. Given this context and barriers such as health care delays, contestations, and undue adminis- trative procedures, not to mention denied abortions, have severely undermined legal abortion-related services. Since 2006, policy and political scenarios have slowly started to change. Recently, there has been some de- velopment of healthcare protocols at both national and provincial levels together with some healthcare services’ willingness to provide abortion related care. Additio- nally, there have been judicial decisions to guarantee ac- cess to legal abortion, including two Supreme Court rulings, which have contributed to a more liberal inter- pretation of the indications established in the penal code. International human rights bodies have made recommen- dations to the Argentine government, such as considering that restricting women’s access to an abortion could entail cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment.

A higher prevalence of microalbuminuria in women in a diabetes management program at a public hospital in the south of Santa Fe province

A higher prevalence of microalbuminuria in women in a diabetes management program at a public hospital in the south of Santa Fe province

No fue posible establecer en este estudio la prevalencia de pacientes diabéticos en relación al número de pacientes que se asisten en esta Institución. Sin embargo resulta de interés, en este punto, destacar el trabajo de De Sereday y col., que ha sido tomado como modelo de datos epidemiológicos en nuestro país para patologías prevalentes que incluyó obesidad, hipertensión, hiperlipidemia y diabetes. Este trabajo se realizó en la región central de Argentina con una mues- tra que incluyó a la ciudad de Venado Tuerto y consideró que la muestra total que incluye 4 loca- lidades de la mencionada región, la prevalencia de diabetes para individuos con edades semejantes al promedio de edad de los pacientes del trabajo que aquí presentamos, esto es incluidas en las décadas 50-59 y 60-69 años, asciende a 12,2 % y 15,1 % respectivamente (n= 1794) (5) .

Hybrid forms of the Culex pipiens Complex (Diptera: Culicidae): New records in La Pampa Province, Argentina

Hybrid forms of the Culex pipiens Complex (Diptera: Culicidae): New records in La Pampa Province, Argentina

On the basis of the present findings, the distribution of hybrids of the Culex pipiens Complex in Republic of Argentina now extends to the latitude 36°13’37” S, corresponding to the above detections within Winifreda in La Pampa Province. From these results and registers from the published literature, hybrids of Culex pipiens Complex occur between latitudes 30° 36’ S (Huascha, Córdoba Province, Brewer et al. 1987) and 36°13’ S (Winifreda, La Pampa Province), and between longitudes 57° 57’ W (La Plata, Buenos Aires Province; Morais et al. 2010) and 64°48’ W (Cruz del Eje, Córdoba Province, Brewer et al. 1987). Results of the present study suggest that the northeastern portion of La Pampa Province is an area of hybridization similar to southern Santa Fe Province (Almirón et al. 1995) and central and northern Córdoba Province (Brewer et al. 1987).

Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis infecting anurans in a protected area from Santa Fe Province, Argentina

Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis infecting anurans in a protected area from Santa Fe Province, Argentina

The first case of Bd infecting H. pulchellus was described in tadpoles collected during winter and early spring (August to October) in Uruguay (Bortei- ro et al., 2009), coinciding with our sampling season. Adults of the studied population of H. pulchellus have winter activity patterns (López et al., 2011) and winter tadpoles with long larval period (Lajmano- vich, 2000), both characteristics that confer special susceptibility to Bd infection (Williams and Hero, 1998; Lips et al., 2003). Additionally, laboratory tests showed a particular sensibility of H. pulchellus to Bd infection when compared with other sympatric species, as for example R. fernandezae (Arellano M. L., pers. comm.).

Diversity of arthropods communities in transgenic cotton varieties in Santa Fe province, Argentina

Diversity of arthropods communities in transgenic cotton varieties in Santa Fe province, Argentina

Los cultivos genéticamente modificados (GM) se han extendido ampliamente dentro de los sistemas agrícolas en Argentina, tal es el caso del algodón BT/RR aprobado comercialmente desde el 2009. Sin embargo no ha sido estudiado y comparado la diversidad de artrópodos en cultivos de algodón Bt y no Bt con uno y dos eventos apilados y su posible impacto sobre el medioambiente. El objetivo de este estudio fue comparar el cultivo de algodón con un solo evento (no Bt) y con dos eventos apilados (Bt) evaluando abundancia, riqueza y diversidad de artrópodos bajo las condiciones ambientales del norte de Santa Fe y obtener información que podrá ser utilizada dentro de programas de Manejo Integrado de Plagas (MIP). Los muestreos se llevaron a cabo durante tres temporadas de algodón (Y1: 2009/10, Y2: 2010/11 y Y3: 2011/12) en la Estación Experimental Agropecuaria del INTA Reconquista, Santa Fe (Argentina). Se utilizó un diseño de bloques completos al azar con cinco repeticiones y dos tratamientos: 1) Cultivo no Bt: (RR) G2000, resistente a herbicida y 2) Cultivo Bt: (BR) NuOpal, resistente a lepidópteros y herbicida, usando dos métodos de muestreo (trampas de caída y G-Vac). La abundancia y riqueza de especies no mostraron diferencias entre el algodón Bt y no Bt y años analizados, excepto para el índice de diversidad que mostro diferencias entre Y1 y Y2. Una alta proporción de artrópodos benéficos fueron registrados para ambos tratamientos durante todo el ciclo de muestreo. Según los resultados obtenidos en las tres campañas de algodón, la diversidad de artrópodos presentes en ambos eventos no fueron afectados y podría ser considerado como una estrategia de control dentro de un MIP para mantener la fauna y sustentabilidad del cultivo.

Didactic activities for the development of English speaking skills in students of seventh grade egb at ciudad de Salinas school, Santa Rosa, Salinas, province of Santa Elena. School year 2014-2015.

Dorothy E. Zemach (2013) says in the Teacher’s book (Skillful Listening & Speaking) “students can begin by acquiring a lot of facts and general knowledge about a language”, and she suggests “students need to develop their skills, they would know how to do things like these: how to explain, persuade, ask for help extend an invitation, outline and argue a thesis, distinguish between important and unimportant information, follow digressions, understand implied information and more”.

Presence of illegal drugs in drivers involved in fatal road traffic accidents in Spain

Presence of illegal drugs in drivers involved in fatal road traffic accidents in Spain

As for information available in Spain, there are few studies relating to drugs and accidents due to several reasons. First of all, samples (for legal purposes) are only taken to determine alcohol (or other drugs) in very few cases (generally in fewer than 3 – 5% of deaths). Secondly, because of what we colloquially refer to as the ‘widow syndrome’, that is, no attention is paid to whether the victim was under the influence of alcohol and/or other drugs, or not, it is preferred that the insurance companies pay the families of the victim and the incident be forgotten. Thus, a test for blood alcohol (and other drugs) is carried out only in cases in which the victim has shown clear signs of being under the effect of alcohol or other drugs. The fact that testing for alcohol in individuals killed or injured in road accidents has become a formal requirement in Spain (since December 1996), might constitute a means to put an end to this situation.

Agrícola y Molienda  Santa Fe, Argentina y el Mundo

Agrícola y Molienda Santa Fe, Argentina y el Mundo

En Sudamérica, la cosecha de soja se encuentra en plena realización, pero los rindes observados hasta el momento hacen prever niveles de producción record. En Brasil, USDA estima un rinde de 3 toneladas por hectárea, por lo que la producción podría llegar a los 94,5 MT, 9,0% más que en la campaña anterior. De todas formas, en los últimos meses de 2014, Brasil sufrió una fuerte sequía que podría haber afectado los rindes de los cultivos, por lo que es posible que el aumento de la producción finalmente sea algo menor y esté marcado únicamente por la mayor área sembrada. En Argentina, las condiciones de humedad de los cultivos han sido excelentes. De acuerdo a la BCR, la producción se incrementaría en un 6,1% con respecto al record de 2013/14, llegando a las 59 MT.

Innovation and Transition in Family Farming: How Dairy Farming is Emerging in the Coffee Agroforestry Systems of Central Kenya

Innovation and Transition in Family Farming: How Dairy Farming is Emerging in the Coffee Agroforestry Systems of Central Kenya

Based on household characteristics four distinct farming systems are determined for the year 1980s where farmers start farming with. Table 1 gives an overview of the number of farmers per farming system when farmers introduced farming until the 1980s. Majority of the farmers (54.2%) had intensified coffee with/without limited food crops. Dairy was practiced by 25.98% of farmers but with almost no attention. The cows used were of the large humped local zebu breeds. But supplemental crops such as beans and maize were practiced by some farmers (Table 1). Table 2, on the other hand, presents current farming system of the households after different processes of transition from one system to another. The current farming systems are classified in three categories. A total of 43.80% of the farmers currently practice diversified coffee-dairy enterprises while 26.30% of the farmers have shifted fully to a specialized and commercialized dairy farms (Table 2). A description of the current farming systems with specific household characteristics is given in Table 3. For each farming system the average size of the family is indicated, the number of years of education of the farmer, the average land size, the percentage of land on which is used for coffee, the percentage of land with food and with cash crops, and access to different institutions such as credit and extension. Even in farming systems classified as having limited dairy activities, the farmers often have one cow (Table 1, 2, 3). These farming systems have per household a milk production of less than 1000 L/ha. Cattle intensification is a direct consequence of the usage of fodder and concentrates and is indicated by the milk production per hectare of a household. Farming systems with major dairy activities have a significant higher milk production per hectare, suggesting commercial

Análisis espacial y del entorno físico de accidentes de tránsito en la ciudad de Resistencia, Chaco, Argentina

Análisis espacial y del entorno físico de accidentes de tránsito en la ciudad de Resistencia, Chaco, Argentina

RESUMEN Los accidentes de tránsito constituyen un problema emergente en ciuda- des con alta movilidad y baja planificación urbana. No existe suficiente evidencia en Argentina acerca de la relación entre el entorno y la ocurrencia de accidentes. Por ello, realizamos un análisis espacial de ocurrencia y estimamos el riesgo de ocurrencia de ac- cidentes en el año 2012 y su posible asociación con las características del entorno físico en la ciudad de Resistencia, provincia del Chaco, Argentina. Para el análisis espacial de los accidentes se utilizó la estimación de densidad kernel. Luego, a través de un estudio observacional y analítico se procedió a analizar los factores asociados a la ocurrencia de los accidentes. Los resultados muestran que existen tres zonas críticas (noroeste, cen- tro y sur) con mayor frecuencia de accidentes. Los factores del entorno que estuvieron asociados con la ocurrencia de accidentes fueron la presencia de iluminación vial (23% menor), árbol próximo a la calzada (47% mayor), la presencia de semáforo (28% mayor), avenidas (122% mayor) y disposición curva de la calzada (129% mayor). Este estudio ubica a la ciudad de Resistencia en una situación de vulnerabilidad urbana, no solo por el contexto socioeconómico donde se encuentra sino por el desigual desarrollo territorial que presenta respecto a las ciudades vecinas, que propicia un entorno desfavorable. PALABRAS CLAVES Sistemas de Información Geográfica; Análisis Espacial; Accidentes de Tránsito; Ambiente; Argentina.
