  2. Exercise addiction in spanish athletes: investigation of the roles of gender, social context and level of involvelment

    Szabo, Attila; Vega Marcos, Ricardo de la; Ruiz Barquín, Roberto; Rivera Rodriguez, Oswaldo
    In nomothetic research exercise addiction is studied on the basis of symptoms which are most often linked to exercise volume. However, other factors may also affect individuals’ susceptibility to the disorder. The aim of this research was to examine the influence of gender, social context (team or individual sport), and level of athletic training on symptoms of exercise addiction. Methods: Two groups of university athletes – sport- (n = 57) and non-sport orientation (n = 90) – and a group of elite ultra-marathon runners (n = 95) completed the Exercise Addiction Inventory (EAI). The psychometric properties of the Spanish EAI were determined. Results:...

  3. ¿Afecta la focalización interna realmente en el rendimiento de carrera?. Aproximación experimental hacia el efecto de la focalización atencional = Does an internal focus really affect running performance?. An experimental approach to the effect of attentional focus

    Vega Marcos, Ricardo de la; Rivera Rodríguez, Oswaldo; Ruiz Barquín, Roberto; Ramos, Jesús J.; Segovia Martín, José Carlos
    Hasta ahora, los estudios sobre los efectos del foco atencional sobre el rendimiento en carreras de fondo han mostrado resultados controvertidos,especialmente derivados de las metodológicas de estudio. Se ha sugerido que un foco atencional interno, centrado en la respiración, aumenta el consumo de oxígeno del corredor, disminuyendo así la economía de carrera. Sin embargo, en los estudios realizados hasta la fecha no se ha controlado en tiempo real a nivel experimental el uso de un foco atencional concreto. Nuestra hipótesis establece que el uso controlado de un foco atencional interno o externo no tiene un efecto sobre la economía de carrera...

  4. Emerging dance movements under ecological constraints in Contact Improvisation dancers with different background

    Torrents, C.; Coterón López, Javier; Ric, A.; Hristovski, R.
    Contact improvisation dance generates different ways of moving and a varied use of motor creativity depending on the constraints acting on the system. The aim of this study was to analyse the softlyassembled dynamics and the emergency of different dance movements of different couples of improvisers with different background dancing under specific task constraints manipulations. One couple of contemporary dancers and one couple of novices were video-recorded while dancing with different constraints: 1) try to maintain both pelvis as close as possible and 2) try to maintain body contact but both pelvis as far as possible. Resulting trials were sequentially observed...

  5. Mapping the Runner’s Mind: A New Methodology for Real-Time Tracking of Cognitions

    Quintana, Miguel; Rivera Rodríguez, Oswaldo; Vega Marcos, Ricardo de la; Ruiz Barquín, Roberto
    Recording cognitions in real-time while running has been identified as one of the major limitations in the field of sport psychology. In this study, a new methodology was developed to overcome this limitation. For this purpose, 17 competitive long distance runners participated voluntarily. The experimental session consisted in identifying and storing cognitions (thoughts, emotions, sensations and mental images) while performing a 30 minutes treadmill run. In addition, participants were asked to register which of these cognitions were perceived as unpleasant. The mapping task showed a total of 1154 cognitions recorded, mostly thoughts. In general, during the session, cognitions perceived as...

  6. Estudio comparativo de sistemas de siembra en maíz, en Loudima, República del Congo

    García Álvaro, Alejandro; Hernández Díaz-Ambrona, Carlos Gregorio
    Este trabajo experimental fue llevado a cabo en Loudima, República del Congo entre los meses de mayo y septiembre de 2016. Tiene como objetivo determinar la estrategia de siembra óptima para el cultivo de maíz para futuras temporadas y conocer el impacto de marco de plantación y la densidad sobre el rendimiento en maíz. El experimento contaba con un total de dieciocho parcelas, nueve de ellas destinadas al sistema de siembra twin row (102.000 plantas/ha) y las otras nueve restantes al sistema conventional row (74.000 plantas/ha). Dentro de cada sistema de siembra, el experimento se realizó con tres variedades diferentes...

  7. Innovation Perception of Knowledge-Intensive Business Services in the Twittersphere

    Lemus Aguilar, Isaac; Franco Riquelme, José Nicanor; Ordieres Meré, Joaquín Bienvenido; Hidalgo Nuchera, Antonio
    1. The rapid diffusion of Twitter as a social media tool has made it suitable to be used for big data quantitative research. KIBS and their clients use this platform to share, engage and get information fostering their innovation processes. Using a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods, we have contrasted interviews from nine KIBS with 16702 tweets mentioning the name of these firms. We have focused on understanding the perception and focus of the innovation management strategy in this sector. The digital transformation was found to be the main driver of KIBS innovative activities. We discuss why the importance...

  8. Promoción de procesos de innovación social para un campus universitario sostenible desde herramientas digitales

    Pesternikova, Elizaveta
    Las expectativas de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS), establecidas por las Naciones Unidas en el año 2015, son muy altas. Para su consecución son necesarias personas capaces de liderar y provocar el cambio hacia un modelo de funcionamiento de individuos, organizaciones y países más sostenible y equitativo. Las universidades tienen un rol fundamental en liderar la formación de estas personas y en orientar la docencia, la investigación y la transferencia de conocimiento hacia modelos de vida más sostenibles. Al mismo tiempo, en un contexto como el actual, con una omnipresencia de las tecnologías digitales, está tomando forma el fenómeno que la Unión...

  9. Unlacing the entrepreneurial potential : exploring factors influencing entrepreneurial intention and entrepreneurship education in emerging economies

    Alexander, Ian Keith
    It is often assumed that there is a strong correlation between entrepreneurship and economic development and a global movement to promote entrepreneurial action is quickly gaining momentum. In emerging economies entrepreneurship may be of crucial importance. It is believed that “entrepreneurship is the engine that will push the emerging economies forward as the states of the developing world quickly grow to be major economic forces” (Bruton et al., 2008, p. 2), so it is quite surprising that entrepreneurship remains woefully under-examined in this context. This is problematic due to the situated nature of entrepreneurship. Hence, context-specific studies are necessary to...

  10. Does family matter? A study of parents’ influence on the entrepreneurial intention of technical degrees students in Spain

    Pablo Lerchundi, Iciar de; Morales Alonso, Gustavo; Vargas Pérez, Ana María
    The purpose of this study is to verify the parental influence on the entrepreneurial intention of technical degrees students in Spain. In an economic crisis context such as the one Spain is currently suffering, entrepreneurship is often regarded as an opportunity for productivity increase and wealth generation, especially if it is technology-based. Therefore, the research of factors that may determine young engineers’ attitude towards entrepreneurship is of great interest. Special attention is paid to parents’ role as knowledge transferors, as their experience may have a positive effect on the entrepreneurial intention of their children.
