The Allocation of Water Resources in the Bogotá Savanna Region: Case Study

The Allocation of Water Resources in the Bogotá Savanna Region: Case Study

Decree 155 of 2003 and resolución 240 of 2004 were approved by the Ministry of the Environment to develop article 42 of law 99 of 1993. According to Decree 155 of 2003 and to Resolución 240 of 2004 issued by the Ministry of the Environment, the minimum price for a cubic meter of water in Colombia is Col $ 0.5 and the maximum is Col $ 3.5 pesos. This maximum fee represents 2.75% of the water fee that the CAR had been charging for water coming from the Teusacá River up until 2003. It represents about 1.5% of what DAMA had been charging for the use of underground water resources. This new fee approved by resolución 240 of 2004 is between a hundredth and a thousandth of the marginal value of water for the industrial sector of Colombia 47 ; it corresponds to 1.5% and 6.5% of the marginal contribution of water to the production of potatoes and peas in one municipality of the Bogotá Savanna 48 . The new lower water fees could be attributed to the wide representation of the regulated sector in the process that led to the approval of the new regulations, and to the absence of other relevant stakeholders such as NGO’s and communities. Quantitative studies relative to the social value of water were not used by the Ministry of the Environment to determine the price of water. Presently the Regional Autonomous Corporation - CAR, is doubtful that the collection of the new water fees can be justifiable from a financial point of view 49 .

Actualización del sistema para el cálculo de combustibles forestales (SICCO v3.0)

Actualización del sistema para el cálculo de combustibles forestales (SICCO v3.0)

amount of fuel present in a unit of area in a quick, practical and simple way, known as the Forest Fuel Evaluation System (SICCO, Spanish acronym), whose foundational methodology for taking stock of forest fuels is based on planar intersections. The new version of SICCO allows dynamic updates of information regarding the specific gravity, apparent density and mean square diameter using relational databases. It has libraries that extract this information from databases contained within the system itself using the location coordinates of the study areas. Likewise, the users can customize these values according to their specific needs. SICCO makes it possible to estimate forest fuel loads in a simple, transparent way. Thus, the users focus their efforts more on the quality of the collected data than on the use of the equations and processes required for the estimation of the weights per unit of area.

These standards, although the compliance with this is a voluntary commitment, are followed by most of the manufacturers and importers of products to prevent complaints from the consumer due to the defects of the product after selling. Once identified this new specific mechanism that provokes burns in children and esta- blished the minimum quality standards for providing more security in the use of these heating elements, it was considered convenient to know the variance of its impact in time and its characteristics. Considering the exposed backgrounds, it was established, as the aim of the study, to determine the impact of preventing and quality certification measures of hot water bottles in burns caused by the tearing of the product in children.

Potentially toxic elements determination and chemical-microbiological analysis of potable water in Taxco de Alarcón, Guerrero

Potentially toxic elements determination and chemical-microbiological analysis of potable water in Taxco de Alarcón, Guerrero

For many centuries, the provision of good quality water has been a determining factor for both subsistence and the society economy (Qu et al., 2013). Nevertheless, although the percent of freshwater available is low (0.5%), their unsuitable use and the detriment of the water qual- ity is a common phenomenon around the world (CONAGUA, 2016; Sun et al., 2017). Water pollution depicts one of the most alarming environmental problems in the contemporary world (Pulido-Bosch, 2007; Hernández-Flores et al., 2017). In many countries, particularly those with emerging economies, anthropogenic activities related to population growth, industrial development, mining, the excessive use of fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides makes the water unusable for any human activity (Cifuentes et al., 1994; Literathy, 1996; Gómez- Álvarez et al., 2004; Sjömander Magnusson and van der Merwe, 2005; Gordillo-Martínez et al., 2010; Lu, 2011).

respectively. The correlation capabilities of 20 topological indices were tested for the case of standard heat formation and normal boiling points of the octane isomers. It is remarkable that the second generalized Zagreb index M 2 α with the exponent α = −1 (and at a lesser extent with the exponent α = −2) has a significantly better performance than the Randic’ index (R = M 2 −1/2 ). The second Zagreb variable index is used in the modeling of boiling points of benzenoid hydrocarbon structure. Many properties and relationships of these indices are discussed in several documents ([16]).

The influence of the English language on the description of cosmetic products

The influence of the English language on the description of cosmetic products

- Serum/sérum: This item is only recorded in Rodríguez González (2017: 884), being defined as “cosmético con textura en forma de gel que se aplica a la cara para hidratar, tensar y dar brillo a la piel”. He also explains that “El término es bien acogido en el campo de la cosmética en detrimento de su equivalente español suero, tan ligado al ámbito de la medicina” (2017: 884). The recommended term suero is only used by Farma Dorsch. Nevertheless, this meaning has not been found in any of the lexicographical English works consulted as part of this study. After expanding our search, two different English sources record this item: the Merriam Webster Dictionary defines serum as “a usually lightweight cosmetic preparation especially for use on the face; specifically: a typically water-based, often concentrated preparation that lacks lubricating and thickening agents”; and an article about skin care products provides information about the use of the product since mid 1990s and how the term comes from professional cosmetology. 17 As a consequence, this term should be considered an Anglicism.

Calibration models for the nutritional quality of fresh pastures by nearinfrared reflectance spectroscopy

for NDF were greater than 0.85 and 2.6, respec- tively, in the calibration set (Table 1). Finally, it was not possible to obtain adequate prediction models for WSC. This may be a consequence of the high water content of the fresh pastures. The water absorption bands in the NIRS spectral data are strong and can limit the detection capacity of other constituents (Thyholt and Isaksson, 1997). The predictive ability of these models can be explained in part by the low standard error of the laboratory given that the reference data were obtained by gravimetric and chemical analysis, techniques that present high precision in com- parison to that of other techniques that include biological elements (Ibañez and Alomar, 2008). The error of calibration for DM was lower than that obtained by Alomar et al. (2009), who re- ported values of standard error of cross valida- tion (SECV) of 7.5, although in their study they obtained higher coefficients of determination and RPD values (0.98 and 7.15, respectively). The calibration model error obtained for CP was lower than that found by Gislum et al. (2004) in red fescue and perennial ryegrass and by Lobos- Ortega et al. (2013) and Alomar et al. (2009) in dry and fresh permanent pastures, respectively.

The use of an english spanish parallel corpus for the study of translation

The use of an english spanish parallel corpus for the study of translation

There has been a revolution in the translator´s professional work because of Internet, which has opened up highways of communication and information retrieval. For example: the translator can get spellchecking and grammatical usage support from the functionalities included in his favorite word processor or use dictionaries and encyclopedias. When we use Internet, we can also consult mono-, bi- and multi- lingual dictionaries, machine translation programs and all kinds of reference archives or consult text corpora, for instance, to find the technical phraseology (collocations) that we do not usually see in terminological dictionaries. The translator´s work has become easier, on the one hand, thanks to web sites hosted by individuals and institutions, ranging from universities to international organizations and associations, which have become a way to access specialized glossaries, electronic dictionaries and reference. Now the problem is not finding a piece of information, but finding the right and reliable piece of information without wasting too much time.

Sembrando una profesión: la intersección entre el Estado, los intereses internacionales y el desarrollo precoz de la enfermería brasileña

Sembrando una profesión: la intersección entre el Estado, los intereses internacionales y el desarrollo precoz de la enfermería brasileña

a policy window opens according to Kingdom (2003). Rare opportunities like these offer regulatory bodies the opportunity to review regulations, examine trends, and make recom- mendations for new policies that can strength- en health systems and their human resources (Hafner & Schiffman, 2012; Xavier et al, 2012; Kingdon, 2003). First in 1943, after extensive preparation, the IAIA sent Mary Elizabeth Tennant to Brazil to assess where to direct in- vestments in professional infrastructure devel- opment for nursing. At the time, Adhemar de Barros, the Governor of the State of Sao Paulo and physician, requested a formal report that would describe in detail the conditions for the organization and development of nursing education in São Paulo. In this commissioned report, Tennant focused on the need for more nurses in São Paulo, as part of the previous agreement between Rockefeller and the Medi- cal School and the Hygiene Institute. Ten- nant’s report focused on the “…urgent need for registered nurses in hospitals”. Her report also encouraged the creation of a School of Nurs- ing with a minimum of 150 students (Campos, 2008). The report urged the Ministry of Edu- cation and Health to supervise the creation of nursing schools across the country and to be responsible for organizing the four schools in Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Sao Paulo and Belem. This geographic distribution ensured that the country’s population centers would be able to produce nurses to meet local needs and then promote fair regional distribution of nurses. Tennant’s report advised the organization and the direction of these four new nursing pro- grams through the SESP. The USP School was the direct result of Tennant’s report.

Communicative lexical exercises in teaching english in the field of "Public and Municipal Administration"

Communicative lexical exercises in teaching english in the field of "Public and Municipal Administration"

The direction "State and Municipal Management" provides students with the opportunity to gain economic and managerial knowledge, professional and administrative skills, allowing them to plan and coordinate the activities of the organization and its employees both in Russia and abroad. This direction in the university focuses on multi disciplinarily, practice-oriented and international cooperation. Thus, future civil servants need in- depth knowledge of a foreign language, features, and traditions of different countries. The main directions of modernization of foreign language teaching are related to the use of the main types of communicative lexical exercises for the development of students' speech productivity. The main task of the teacher is to improve the use of types of communication exercises in practical classes, identify the conditions for improving the quality of learning and verbal productivity.

The Mystory: The Garage D'Or of Ereignis

The Mystory: The Garage D'Or of Ereignis

“In Florida we have a very water-dependent, sensitive environment where small changes in water quality can make huge changes in biological integrity,” said [John] Hankinson [a former U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regional administrator], who thinks the state’s ongoing water challenges are more pressing than residual harm from the 3-year- old oil spill. “The Indian River Lagoon is a great example,” he said. “We’ve spent millions of dollars in the lagoon to deal with nutrient pollution, resulting in great improvement in the health of the seagrasses and fisheries. Then bam! Out of nowhere comes this algae ‘superbloom,’ which has decimated the seagrass beds. “It’s left everybody thinking, ‘Wow, we worked so hard on this, and this is the result we get?’’’

Predictive value of the number of symptoms during pH monitoring for the diagnosis of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Predictive value of the number of symptoms during pH monitoring for the diagnosis of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

The number of symptoms experienced during 24 hours may indirectly represent visceral hypersensitivi- ty, hypervigilance and psychosocial characteristics. We expected a two-tailed distribution of symptoms. We believed that patients who reported a small number of symptoms during pHmonitoring had a lower chance to have GERD, since the disease presents with burden- some symptoms leading to a low quality of life compa- rable to diabetes and hypertension especially consider- ing that patients had to stop medication to undergo the test. 10 Our results oppositely showed a higher number

“I am not one of his followers”: The Rewriting of the Cultural Icon of the Virgin in Colm Tóibín’s The Testament of Mary

“I am not one of his followers”: The Rewriting of the Cultural Icon of the Virgin in Colm Tóibín’s The Testament of Mary

In Tóibín’s novel, the Crucifixion scene acquires a whole new meaning. Disguised with her companions among the crowd, Mary witnesses with horror her son’s procession carrying the Cross, his face all bloody and the crown of thorns pushing into his forehead. On the hill, she is horrified when she hears Jesus’s howls of pain. Paralysed by terror, Mary and her companions remain still and silent, aware that they could also receive a similar punishment. When she notices that they are being singled out, Mary herself insists that they must escape. Guilt consumes the mother as she confesses that “perhaps I was right to save myself when I could. But it does not feel like that now and it never has. But I will say it now because it has to be said by someone once: I did it to save myself” (85). In contrast to the religious figure of the Holy Mother that all believers turn to when they are in despair, Tóibín’s depiction of Mary offers no romanticism, no consolation, no final and comforting union, no self-sacrificing mother. Years later, the sheer violence of the Crucifixion still preys on Mary’s mind. Surprisingly, she also reveals that “despite the pain that I felt, a pain that has never lifted, and will go with me into the grave, despite all of this, the pain was his and not mine” (84). Indeed, a recurring image in Christian art is that of statues and pictures of a weeping Virgin holding a mortally wounded Jesus in her arms, the human mother and the divine son united in total suffering. In the case of Tóibín’s narrative, her pain is no longer a mere symbol, an artistic cliché, a means to show a pure heart or a communion with God. Mary’s pain, filled with remorse and regret, is private and uniquely her own.

Making use of the Food and Drug Administration briefing documents to reconsider the safety of the antipsychotic sertindole

The FDA’s SCoP analysis was made public in April 2009 and the journal publication appeared 18 months later in November 2010. Sertindole’s manufacturer funded the published SCoP trial but it is not known if the SCoP authors where aware of the FDA sudden cardiac death analysis at the time their manuscript was being prepared. Nevertheless, briefing documents have been posted on the FDA’s Web site since 2000 and are indexed in Iowa Drug Information Service (IDIS) from the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy (http://itsnt14.its.uiowa.edu). These documents are in the public domain and can be freely used with proper attribution.
