La petja d’Irene Polo 75 anys després

Mar Casas Honrado

Irene Polo Roig (Barcelona, 1909–Buenos Aires, 1942) fou una de les primeres periodistes de la història de Catalunya que omplí les pàgines de les principals capçaleres barcelonines a la dècada dels 30 del segle XX i que, en canvi, per la seva condició d’exiliada i, sobretot, de dona, va caure en l’oblit. En el darrer tram de la seva curta …

Ageostrophic motions in the Brasil-Malvinas confluence region

Marta Masdeu Navarro

Any ocean perturbation tends towards an equilibrium situation where the vertical balance is hydrostatic and the dominant horizontal forces are pressure gradients and Coriolis force, the so called geostrophic balance. Any motion that represents a desviation from this balance is named ageostrophic. At spatial and temporal scales of order 10-100 km (mesoscale) and longer, these desviations are small except within …

Deployable Architecture. Deployable arches based on regular polygon geometry.

Natalia Torres Londoño

This research discusses a deployable-arch-structure design that is built using articulated bars, commonly called a scissor-system, and is based on the regular polygon geometry. The deployed-arch shape can be determined by inscribing regular polygon geometry in a circle. It is defined by the: a. number of bars required, b. position of the pivots, c. pivot-point distances, d. bar length, and …

Influencia de las prácticas de liderazgo pedagógico en las prácticas pedagógicas docentes: caso en Chile de las Unidades Técnicas Pedagógicas

Guilllermo Rodríguez Molina

Los liderazgos en las organizaciones son sin duda un objeto de estudio que atrae por las múltiples áreas en las cuales se enfoca el fenómeno a estudiar. Además, se presenta como un desafío ya que se deben buscar aquellas lagunas que las diversas investigaciones y evidencia empírica han dejado. Durante años se ha dicho que los buenos liderazgos escolares son …

Biochemical and evolutionary characterization of the GNA gene family in Apicomplexa

Marta Cova

Glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchors represent one of the major carbohydrate modifications described in apicomplexan parasites such as Plasmodium and Cryptosporidium. Due to their important roles for the survival and pathogenicity of these organisms, GPI biosynthesis is a potential target to tackle relevant clinical and veterinarian infections caused by apicomplexan parasites. The generation of the UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc) precursor, needed to feed GPI …

REPRESENTATION, MYTH AND METAPHOR OF THE TOWER OF BABEL. FROM THE LINGUISTIC FORMATION OF COLLECTIVE IDENTITIES TO THE TECHNOLOGICAL IDENTITIES OF GLOBALITY.

María Bendito Haro

The current research project is a symbolic and iconographic exploration of the Tower of Babel myth as a metaphor of man’s relationship with the universe. It revolves around the artistic image of the Tower of Babel and has, as basis of thinking, the understanding of the world in the Euro-American history, which ultimately refers to the history of metaphorical knowledge. …

Thin AlN diffusion barrier for carbon nanotubes growth over stainless steel substrate

Luis Fernando Pantoja Suárez, Islam Alshaikh

Nowadays, there are diverse kinds of diffusion barriers (DB) to avoid the migration (diffusion) of catalyst atoms inside the substrate during the annealing process before starting the carbon nanotubes (CNTs) growth using PECVD process. Different oxides and nitrides can be used as a DB. We have compared aluminum oxide (Al2O3) and aluminum nitride (AlN), which act very well over different …

Evaluar para y desde la realidad: hacia prácticas de evaluación auténticas y sostenibles

Esperanza Mejías Macías

La evaluación tiene una influencia innegable sobre los procesos de enseñanza y aprendizaje. El simple hecho de determinar qué queremos valorar y con qué propósito lo haremos condiciona desde la programación de actividades hasta el comportamiento de los alumnos. Por este motivo el análisis de las actividades de evaluación (qué, cuándo, cómo y por qué evaluamos a nuestros alumnos) es …

Identification of ap2-hs as the master regulator of heat shock response in Plasmodium falciparum parasites

Elisabet Tintó Font

Plasmodium falciparum, the causal agent of malaria, is frequently exposed to changes of temperature during its life cycle such as the cyclical fever episodes that occur in many infected patients. Different parasite lines vary in their survival rates to high febrile temperatures, but the mechanism by which some are more resistant than others remains unknown. Next generation sequencing analysis of …
