  3. En la frontera del conflicto socio-ambiental: el modo de vida rural y el desarrollo del turismo de sol y playa en Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Hernández Ulate, Aurora; Picón, Juan Carlos
    The tourism in Guanacaste has been one of the economical activities with major growing in this region and its economical importance even impacted the growth of the Internal Gross Product of Costa Rica. However, in spite of its natural beauties, Guanacaste offers limitations associated to the same natural conditions like, the six months of dry periods, the pronounced slopings of same hillsides and   the ecological importance of the mountain areas and coastal zones. The social and natural conditions in which the growth of this economical activity has taken place, the appearance of conflicting situations has resulted between communities and developing...

  4. Huella hídrica en tierras secas: el caso del turismo de sol y playa en Guanacaste (Costa Rica)

    Hernández Ulate, Aurora; Picón, Juan Carlos
    This article briefly elaborates on the uses of water in services and activities related to sun and beach tourism in dry regions such as Guanacaste, in the North Pacific of Costa Rica. The concept of water footprint is used to understand the relationship between tourism and water consumption. This document discusses the implications of this approach of consumption, especially in dry environments that depend on underground extraction of water. The information comes from secondary sources review and its contextualization to the case of Guanacaste. The purpose of this paper is to provide some orientation to the discussions taking place among...

  5. Diferencias en factores de riesgo para la salud entre adolescentes tardíos/jóvenes y adultos

    Esteve Cavero, Aurora
    Background: According to the World Health Organization (WHO) nearly two thirds of premature deaths and one third of the total disease burden in adults are associated with conditions or behaviours that began in youth. The literature and official agencies identify a series of health problems closely related to adolescence. These problems usually stem from risk behaviours. Objective: Our main objective is determining whether there are differences in risk factors for health between adults and adolescents/youngsters. We focus on those problems especially important for the latter. Method: We undertake an analytical study. We use data from the Spanish national survey on...

  6. Luces y sombras: La puesta en valor del patrimonio arqueológico urbano andaluz.

    Ibáñez Alfonso, María Aurora
    Imponentes monumentos como la Alcazaba de Almería, el Teatro Romano de Málaga o el templo de la calle Claudio Marcelo de Córdoba, son hitos patrimoniales que tradicionalmente han gozado de prestigio académico y reconocimiento social. Sin embargo, otros muchos vestigios arqueológicos de carácter urbano no tan espectaculares pero igualmente representativos de las diferentes civilizaciones que han ido dejando su impronta en el territorio andaluz permanecen desdeñados, relegados e ignorados por sus gestores y la ciudadanía en general. Muchos han resurgido del subsuelo de la ciudad a partir de la fuerte actividad constructiva acaecida en los últimos años de bonanza económica,...

    Norte Navarro, Aurora Isabel; Ortiz Moncada, Rocío; Prats Moya, Soledad; Maestre, Salvador E.; Carballo Marrero, Silvia; Martínez Sanz, José Miguel
    En la actualidad, existe confusión en la terminología utilizada sobre la definición de ración, pesos y medidas de alimentos usados en la preparación de dietas y menús. La bibliografía utilizada en el ámbito de la nutrición humana y dietética ofrece información diferente, lo que genera confusión en la información emitida a los estudiantes y en la interpretada por ellos. El objetivo de la presente Red es realizar una revisión de la literatura de la biblioteca de la Universidad de Alicante y proponer el diseño de una guía/instrumento de orientación universitaria, sobre el tamaño de raciones de alimentos. Para ello se...

  8. Estudio y mejora del rendimiento del backend

    Mollá Sirvent, Rafael Alejandro
    Un backend debe procesar grandes cantidades de información con la menor latencia y el mejor rendimiento posible, haciendo un uso lo más eficiente de los recursos disponibles. Nuestro sistema actual consta de un ´application stack´ compuesto por MySQL, memcached y lógica de negocio en Java (corriendo sobre un Enterprise Service Bus), con escalabilidad horizontal mediante sharding. A fin de acelerar la generación de informes, estos se pre-procesan y se almacenan en cubos OLAP . El proyecto trata de estudiar el sistema actual e identificar los cuellos de botella a todos los niveles (sistema operativo, sistema de archivos, base de datos,...

  10. The interaction between a large buoyant bubble and turbulence

    Loisy, Aurore; Naso, Aurore
    The free rise of isolated, deformable, finite-size bubbles in otherwise homogeneous isotropic turbulence is investigated by direct numerical simulation. The Navier-Stokes equations are solved in both phases subject to the pertinent velocity and stress conditions at the deformable gas/liquid interface. The bubble rise velocity is found to be drastically reduced by turbulence, as is widely known for microbubbles. The probability distribution functions of the horizontal bubble acceleration component are well fitted by a log-normal distribution. The distributions of the vertical components are negatively skewed, a property related to the fact that bubbles experience on average stronger decelerations than accelerations. An...

  13. 40 años de televisión infantil en España (1970-2010)

    Feijóo Fernández, Beatriz; García González, Aurora
    Dado que la televisión, desde su nacimiento, siempre ha sido un medio cercano a los niños, surgió el interés por analizar el grado de atención que la TV dedicó a su audiencia infantil en los principales 40 años de su historia en España. Así, se estudió la evolución del contenido infantil en las parrillas de las cadenas generalistas en abierto desde 1970 a 2010 empleando para ello la técnica del análisis de contenido. Entre las conclusiones destaca el trato poco favorable que las cadenas brindaron a la programación infantil, traducido en un descenso en las horas de emisión hasta su...

  14. Density functional theory studies of MTSL nitroxide side chain conformations attached to an activation loop

    Concilio, MG; Fielding, AJ; Bayliss, RWA; Burgess, SG
    A quantum-mechanical (QM) method rooted on density functional theory (DFT) has been employed to determine conformations of the methane-thiosulfonate spin label (MTSL) attached to a fragment extracted from the activation loop of Aurora-A kinase. The features of the calculated energy surface revealed low energy barriers between isoenergetic minima and the system could be described in a population of 76 rotamers that can be also considered for other systems since it was found that the 3, 4 and 5 do not depend on the previous two dihedral angles. Conformational states obtained were seen to comparable to those obtained in the α-helix...

  15. PD-L1 expression in metastatic neuroblastoma as an additional mechanism for limiting immune surveillance

    Dondero, Alessandra; Pastorino, Fabio; Della Chiesa, Mariella; Corrias, Maria Valeria; Morandi, Fabio; Pistoia, Vito; Olive, Daniel; Bellora, Francesca; Locatelli, Franco; Castellano, Aurora; Moretta, Lorenzo; Moretta, Alessandro; Bottino, Cristina; Castriconi, Roberta
    The prognosis of high-risk neuroblastoma (NB) remains poor, although immunotherapies with anti-GD2 antibodies have been reported to provide some benefit. Immunotherapies can be associated with an IFNγ storm that induces in tumor cells the “adaptive immune resistance” characterized by the de-novo expression of Programmed Death Ligands (PD-Ls). Tumor cells can also constitutively express PD-Ls in response to oncogenic signaling. Here, we analyze the constitutive and the inducible surface expression of PD-Ls in NB cells. We show that virtually all HLA class Ipos NB cell lines constitutively express PD-L1, whereas PD-L2 is rarely detected. IFNγ upregulates or induces PD-L1 both in...

  18. Necesidad y eterno retorno en la filosofía de Nietzsche

    Baille Vidal, Albert
    Necesidad y eterno retorno están íntimamente entrelazados en la filosofía de Nietzsche. Sirviéndonos de la causalidad y en aras de una mejor intuitividad, cada estado del cosmos tiene como consecuencia otro que no puede ser más que el único que puede producir. De esta manera, se irán sucediendo hasta completar todos los posibles y se inicia de nuevo la repetición en un proceso eterno. Dada esa férrea necesidad que gobierna la sucesión de estados, retorna siempre lo mismo. Para averiguar la auténtica naturaleza del eterno retorno de Nietzsche, me plantee la formulación de dos preguntas con la idea de que...

  19. Faster individual discrete logarithms in non-prime finite fields with the NFS and FFS algorithms

    Guillevic, Aurore
    Computing discrete logarithms in finite fields is a main concern in cryptography. The best algorithms known are the Number Field Sieve and its variants in large and medium characteristic fields (e.g. GF$(p^2)$, GF$(p^{12})$); the Function Field Sieve and the Quasi Polynomial-time Algorithm in small characteristic finite fields (e.g. GF$(3^{6\cdot509})$). The last step of the NFS and FFS algorithms is the individual logarithm computation. It computes a smooth decomposition of a given target in two phases: an initial splitting then a descent tree. While new improvements have been made to reduce the complexity of the dominating relation collection and linear algebra...

  20. Ice Captain: the life of J. R. Stenhouse

    Haddelsey, Stephen
    Not long after Shackleton watched his ship Endurance become trapped in the ice floes of the Weddell Sea, on the other side of Antarctica the expedition’s second ship, Aurora, suffered an equally terrifying fate. Under the command of J.R. Stenhouse, the Aurora was torn from her moorings and driven out to sea, becoming trapped in pack ice. For ten months the ice sawed at her hull, until, with her rudder smashed and water cascading from her seams, she broke free and embarked upon her own extraordinary voyage to safe harbour. One hundred years on from the Endurance expedition of 1914–17, Ice...
