Economic impact of the transition from RISE to RIMPE on microenterprises in the province of Cotopaxi

In the context of economics and public administration, fiscal policies play an essential role in shaping business environments. The transition of the province of Cotopaxi from the Ecuadorian Simplified Tax Regime (RISE) to the Tax Regime for Popular Entrepreneurs and Businesses (RIMPE) is a matter of great importance in this research, as well as for government authorities and the community at large. This study focuses on a detailed analysis of the economic impact of this change on microenterprises in the province, considering its scientific importance, social implications, and effects on the local business community. The analysis of tax policies and their influence on the economy is a continuously debated topic. The research focuses on understanding how changes in tax systems can have significant effects on the economic dynamics of a region and how these measures affect the microenterprise level in order to formulate more effective policies. Microenterprises are essential in many communities, generating employment and promoting economic development. The transition from RISE to RIMPE is not only about an economic assessment, but also about how tax decisions affect people's lives and job opportunities. The main objective of the research is to understand the economic effects of this transition on microenterprises in Cotopaxi, considering profitability, investment, job creation and competitiveness. Process challenges are addressed and long-term projections are presented to provide solid information to stakeholders and support data-driven decision-making. Previous research that has analyzed the changes in the RIMPE is mentioned and the need to provide training to taxpayers to avoid confusion in the new regime is highlighted. It shows how RIMPE benefits micro-enterprises compared to RISE and highlights mixed opinions on its impact on business. In the theoretical review, reforms in value-added and consumption taxes are discussed, as well as activities excluded from the regime. The duration of the RIMPE and the progressivity of the tax burden in the future are mentioned. The research method is descriptive and justified by the need to gain a full understanding of the effects of transition. The selection of the sample, composed of 7 microenterprises from Cotopaxi, is explained, and the limitations due to resources and access are recognized. In the results and discussion, the changes in the ranking of companies before and after the transition are presented. It analyzes how some companies improved their position, indicating benefits in competitiveness, while others remained stable. The importance of adaptation and business strategy is highlighted. In conclusion, the study shows that the transition from RISE to RIMPE has a differentiated impact on microenterprises in Cotopaxi. Some companies experienced improvements in competitiveness and position, while others maintained their stability. Adaptation and business strategy are essential to face these changes.

Influence of lifestyle habits on the evolution of arterial hypertension in adults

At the Nueva San Rafael Health Center in Esmeraldas, a study was carried out with adults between 35 and 60 years old to evaluate the influence of lifestyle habits on the evolution of high blood pressure. The study used questionnaires and direct observations to collect data and evaluate patients' high blood pressure behaviors through direct observation. The research identified that family history, poor health habits and being overweight were the main risk factors. The findings confirmed the need for early and personalized interventions, especially in populations at high genetic risk. The educational strategies applied were effective in promoting healthy habits and reducing risk factors, which suggests that they can be replicated in other public health programs. Together, a proactive and evidence-based approach was proposed to improve both individual and community interventions. In addition, the need to investigate more about the sustainability and long-term impact of these educational strategies and the contribution to future public policies was identified. It has been concluded that early intervention in the evolution of high blood pressure and the promotion of continuing education is necessary to mitigate risk factors. Therefore, it has become necessary to promote healthy lifestyles, and, consequently, improve the quality of life of adults affected by this prevalent medical condition

Interpretation using PRISMA 2020 methodology of antibiotic use in dentistry

The objective of this study is to interpret the use of antibiotics in dentistry using the PRISMA 2020 methodology. An integrative bibliographic review was conducted using PubMed, covering publications from 2019 to 2024. The search focused on identifying practices and patterns of antibiotic prescription in dentistry. Ten relevant studies were included, evidencing the prevalence of inappropriate antibiotic prescriptions and the impact of bacterial resistance. Findings highlight that antibiotic prophylaxis in dental procedures is often unjustified, contributing to antimicrobial resistance development. Additionally, a shift towards more rational prescribing guidelines was observed in some contexts. Recommendations include improving the education and continuous training of dental health professionals and establishing stricter policies for the regulation of antibiotic prescriptions and sales

The Future of Healthcare: Evaluating the Impact of Emerging Technologies on Medical Care

Telemedicine has proven particularly valuable in improving access to care for patients in remote areas by enabling medical consultations without the need for travel. However, the adoption of these technologies faces significant challenges, especially in terms of ethics and privacy, which requires the development of robust policies to protect patient data and ensure equitable access. Therefore, this study aims to investigate and analyze emerging technologies such as telemedicine, artificial intelligence (AI), and robotics in the transformation of healthcare. To this end, the impact on efficiency, accessibility, and the quality of care, as well as future implications in remote medicine, has been analyzed. Through the analysis of research materials and methods, the acceptance of these technologies by patients and health professionals was evaluated, where improvements in diagnostics and the optimization of surgical procedures with greater precision and less invasiveness have been valued. Furthermore, the results suggest that although telemedicine, AI, and robotics offer substantial benefits, successful implementation requires considering the needs and concerns of all users. In conclusion, it is crucial to continue the development of policies and technological innovation to maximize the benefits and ensure the safe and effective implementation of these technologies in healthcare

Some links between transdisciplinarity and scientific research

A sign of transdisciplinarity is being able to read between the lines, since what is not made explicit, what is not said with all the letter is captured. Whoever seeks clarity should seek contradictions, complementarities, between reason and passion, between different reasons, between quantitative and qualitative approaches, analogical and digital methods, between pluri, inter and transdisciplinary parts. Nicolescu introduces meaning into science, through its dimensions of meaning, anti-sense, and lack of meaning. It is the responsibility of each one to self-generate, in this case, the method itself. Faith allows the jump between levels of reality and knowledge, to build bridges between knowledge, without the need to appropriate them. It is worth asking, in each knowledge, what has remained, and what has changed, and what could change or remain when related to other knowledge. It should be noted which limits characterize the sciences with which a discipline is related. A level of reality that is not traversed is an epistemological obstacle that has been overcome. Does science develop the causes of its denial, claiming the help of the doxa? Did scientific problems give way to transdisciplinary problems? Transdisciplinarity should not exist, since it turns the idea into an object, into a discipline, and transdisciplinarity should give way to transdisciplinary, the verb that puts us into action to seek bridges and relationships. The results are the product of the interaction

Generation of professional competencies based on the profile of the graduate in education

This paper reports on the experience acquired in the process of designing the profile and professional competencies of the Bachelor's Degree in Education graduating from a Faculty of Education. The previous conceptual precisions are made to clarify that capacities are concepts of greater semantic amplitude than competences; that each competence is actualized if the student possesses the respective necessary capacity and that competences are the actualization of human capacities according to the educational objectives assumed by the professor. The professional profile is the graduate's profile and is made up of two dimensions: the first: the traits that, as a person and member of society, the graduate should possess, and the second: the traits that, as a professional, he/she should have acquired in his/her training process.

Analysis of the diagnosis and management of cervical ectopic pregnancies in Ecuador, through the study of cases described in the bibliography

Ectopic pregnancy is a condition in which the fertilized egg implants and begins to grow outside the uterus, usually in one of the fallopian tubes. Currently, with the advancement of science, the diagnosis can be made within the first weeks of evolution, after fertilization, identifying the gestational sac in the cervix using ultrasound techniques that seek to implement a measured treatment that does not affect the fertility of the the patient. The objective of the research consists of analysis of the diagnosis and management of cervical ectopic pregnancies in Ecuador, through the study of cases described in the bibliography. The type of research is of a descriptive bibliographic nature, because it seeks to identify the diagnostic tools and clinical criteria described, as well as risk factors described in the bibliography. There are clinical criteria that help detect a cervical ectopic pregnancy such as intense abdominal and pelvic pain, abundant vaginal bleeding, hemorrhages and sensitivity in the area near the cervix. Among the treatment options that exist are medications such as methotrexate or some others that inhibit embryonic growth. In Ecuador this problem is growing and is due to the absence of knowledge about the malformation and the lack of a protocol for its management and resolution, given that there is no established order in how to treat patients with this pathology, causing medical care slows down and generates greater complications

Arterial hypertension: a global public health challenge and the need for comprehensive strategies

High blood pressure affects more than 1 billion people and is one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality. This chronic condition, often asymptomatic in its early stages, can lead to serious cardiovascular diseases if not managed properly. Its risk factors include modifiable elements such as obesity and a sedentary lifestyle, as well as non-modifiable factors such as genetics and age. Effective management of hypertension requires timely diagnosis, medical treatment, and significant lifestyle changes. The present study aims to develop educational strategies to reduce complications. Through a qualitative-quantitative approach with the development of a survey, it was learned that the majority of patients do not have knowledge about their disease, are sedentary and do not follow an adequate diet, nor do they engage in physical activity. It is concluded to propose education strategies that promote healthy environments on hypertension to mitigate its global impact and thus improve quality of life and reduce the economic burden on health systems

Factors Affecting Quality Milk Productivity in Dairy Farming

This study examines the current state of dairy farming in India. It investigates the impact of four factors (cattle feed, cattle health, climatic conditions, and milk handling) on milk productivity from the
perspective of dairy farmers. A cross-sectional study using inferential statistics was conducted with dairy farmers, using a questionnaire to gather information on milk productivity. The study employed SmartPLS to analyze the measurement and structural models to support the positive hypothesis. The
study employed a combinative PLS method, which aligns with the characteristics of a structural
equation model. A focused group analysis was also performed to gather respondents' opinions and provide recommendations. The findings indicate a positive relationship between the four independent
variables and milk productivity quality. Furthermore, adopting an organic and natural approach to cattle feed can reduce feed costs. Access to government veterinary hospitals, along with continuous medical support and potential private veterinary hospitals, as well as the use of proper concrete, sheds with effective heat management and measures to address rainy season challenges, and maintaining
hygiene during milk transportation, will be beneficial for dairy farmers and lead to increased milk productivity.

Approach to adolescents with suicidal ideation

Introduction: Suicidal ideation is the presentation of self-destructive thoughts in apparently normal adolescents, it is a key predictor of future suicide attempts or completed suicide; worldwide and Ecuador, it is a significant public health problem, the etiology is multifactorial, the approach is difficult due to several factors such as social stigma, personal fears and denial, difficulty expressing their feelings and thoughts, several scales have been designed. . that help for early diagnosis and prevention, the main evaluation methods are Beck, Plutchik and ISO-30, intervention programs seek to create a protective environment through group and educational activities; Intervention strategies range from environmental awareness to cognitive-behavioral therapies. These programs seek to raise awareness, provide coping skills and support based on specific needs.
Objective: To carry out a systematic review that allows us to analyze and determine the approach, risk factors and evaluation scales of adolescents with suicidal ideation, using updated scientific evidence, with the purpose of facilitating health personnel in the early identification and diagnosis of the school adolescents with suicidal ideation to avoid a fatal outcome.
Materials and methods: an exhaustive search was carried out in PubMed, Google Scholar, Scielo and Redalyc using Boolean operators, articles in English and Spanish published in the last five years were analyzed, allowing the selection of original studies, systematic reviews and meta-analysis, in addition to exclude studies not relevant to the age group under study or that lacked a relationship with suicidal ideation.
Results: Three key tools are described to evaluate suicidal ideation: the Plutchik Suicidal Risk Scale (ERSP), the ISO-30 Suicidal Orientations Inventory and the Beck Hopelessness Scale (BHS). The ERSP, adapted by Páez to Spanish, consists of 15 items and evaluates impulsivity, suicidal ideation and other related aspects. The ISO-30, validated in Spanish by Liporace and Casullo, addresses dimensions such as hopelessness, low self-esteem and loneliness, difficulty coping with emotional problems and suicidal thoughts. The BHS, developed by Beck, evaluates hopelessness and has 20 questions with true answers. or false, being a relevant indicator of possible suicidal behavior according to its total score.
Conclusions: Suicidal ideation, suicide attempt and completed suicide have emerged as an important public health problem worldwide in the young population. In our country, the provinces of Pichincha and Azuay are the ones that have recorded the highest cases, the early identification of Suicidal ideation is crucial to prevent premature deaths, effective prevention and addressing require a comprehensive approach combining individual and community interventions, highlighting the importance of identifying risk factors and the implementation of preventive programs.

Challenges and perspectives of the teaching-learning process of the Pharmacology discipline in the medical career

Introduction: the teaching – learning process of the discipline Pharmacology is studied.
Methods: a prospective, observational and descriptive was carried out. From the theoretical point of view, the historical – logical, analysis – synthesis, and inductive – deductive methods were used, which allowed the analysis of conceptions on the topic from different approaches and contexts. On an empirical level, the analysis of documents was used to collect information.
Results: the teaching – learning process of the discipline Pharmacology shows insufficiencies in its systemic structure according to its didactic components, and their gradual derivation from the medical students’ mode of professional performance. The teaching – learning process of the discipline Pharmacology lacks a didactic relation with the General Practitioners’ mode of professional performance in solving professional and academic problems by means of the use of the knowledge and skills obtained within the discipline. It is not integrated with other disciplines and subjects within the same academic year in a coherent and systemic manner. The methodological work is insufficient, in favor of a more rational medication prescription, based on the mode of professional performance in a systemic and interdisciplinary manner.
Conclusions: the teaching –learning process of the discipline Pharmacology in Medical studies provides new dimensions for its didactic categories, mediated by the professor and self – regulated by the student and the class, which comes to be in the solution to the professionalizing task, starting from communication, and according to the principles of the medical ethics and the mode of professional performance.

Neurobioethics and bioethics in the severe oncology patient with neurological complications

Introduction: Clinical outcomes after a neurological emergency result worse for cancer patients and may result in critical illness requiring admission to the Intensive Care Unit. Neurobioethics and bioethics are effective tools to understand and provide the best care for this type of patient.
Objective: to reflect on elements of interest related to bioethics and neurobioethics in the oncological patient with neurological complications.
Development: neurobioethics is a scientific discipline derived from a multidisciplinary approach based on bioethics, which is applied to ethical questions regarding its ontology and its teleological organicity for human life. In the severe neuro-oncological patient, devoid of any integral neurological function due to central nervous system involvement, neurobioethics applies scientific knowledge and ethical behavior to medical care, responding to the neurocritical patient.
Conclusions: comprehensive care of patients with cancer and severe neurological involvement requires scientific, ethical and moral knowledge that allows the application of the best therapeutic strategy, human and family care, and short- and long-term prognosis. Neurobioethics promises these tools while providing these patients with respect, compassion, care and empathy. However, it still needs further studies involving this discipline in neuro-oncologic intensive care.

Systemic Vision of the Technological Educational Context in Latin America

The objective of the article was to diagnose the reality of Latin America in the educational technological context, from the perspectives of different international organizations. It is a documentary and interpretative study that uses discursive hermeneutics to detect the coincidences and differences found in the statements issued by these important organizations, on the use and appropriation of pedagogical solutions based on digital technologies that are essential in the countries of this region to ensure a comprehensive education in line with these globalized and post-pandemic times. The international organizations selected for the analysis, which served as a reference sample for this diagnosis, were: the World Bank (WB); the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC); the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The diagnosis was oriented towards the perception that these organizations have of the current reality and the solutions offered to solve the obstacles to these realities. The results show discursive disparities regarding the existing technological-educational situation, as well as coincidences in relation to the aspects proposed to remedy these obstacles. It is concluded that the support received by these organizations for technology-based education in Latin American countries should not be biased by the interests of the global economy that limits the autonomy of these peoples.

Long-term benefits for children of including dental health in education

The present quasi-experimental study evaluated the effectiveness of a dental education program implemented at the Tuntatacto Educational Unit during the last quarter of the 2022-2023 academic year. The intervention included interactive workshops, distribution of dental hygiene kits, and teaching proper brushing and flossing techniques, specifically targeting the experimental group, while the control group did not receive these activities. The results indicated significant improvements in oral hygiene knowledge and practices in the experimental group compared to the control group, demonstrating the importance of incorporating dental education into the school curriculum. Data collected through pre- and post-intervention questionnaires showed an increase in awareness about the importance of dental care, regularity of brushing, flossing, and parental supervision in dental hygiene in the group that received the education. Additionally, a reduction in anxiety toward dental visits and greater acceptance of common dental procedures was observed. This study highlights the preeminence of early, practical educational interventions in dental health promotion, which not only improves children's immediate oral health but also establishes a solid foundation for long-term healthy oral hygiene practices. The implications detected suggest that similar programs could be effectively replicated in different educational contexts to strengthen dental education and prevent dental diseases from an early age

Effect of probiotics on the obese patient. A review study

The gut microbiota is a potential determining factor in the development of obesity, resulting in dysbiosis, which is related to a lower number of members of the Bacteroidetes division and an increase in Firmicutes leading to a decrease in energy expenditure, it is also associated with the inflammatory process, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Objective: To conduct a literature review related to the effects of probiotics on the improvement of the intestinal microbiota in an obese patient and its associated disorders.
Methods: A search of articles in PubMed, Google Scholar and Elsevier from the last five years was conducted using the terms "obesity and probiotics", "effect of probiotics", "gut microbiota and probiotics". A total of 23 articles were included in the selection criteria.
Results: Supplementation with probiotics specifically certain strains such as Lactobacillus plantarum and Bifidobacterium could lead to significant weight reductions, in combination with energy restriction and physical activity. However, it is important to develop clinical trials that are properly designed, including all aspects of lifestyle, gut microbiota, metabolites, and genetic background.
Conclusions: Despite the beneficial effects, they are not yet considered an alternative strategy in the treatment of obesity due to the lack of research in this field, since the currently available data come from studies conducted in animals that may not present potential in humans. It is important to conduct more large-scale longitudinal studies with longer follow-up.

Methods: Observational, descriptive and cross-sectional research with an intentional sample of 58 directors and teachers of the Medicine career during the 2023 academic year. Empirical, theoretical and statistical methods were used.
Results: 56 % of managers and teachers have insufficient knowledge of the management of methodological work and the regulations that regulate it. Only 60 % of the heads of departments and methodological groups conceive the methodological work plan taking as a starting point a balance of the strengths and weaknesses of the previous period. The management of the methodological work at the level of the departments and methodological groups, is affected by limiting itself to complying with the guidelines of higher levels, as reported by 90 % of the teachers. The methodological activities that are carried out do not always have conceptual elements of pedagogy, particularly didactic, as their starting point. Conclusions: The management process of the methodological work that is developed in the Medicine career of the University of Medical Sciences of Pinar del Río presents inadequacies that can be solved and thereby contribute to the quality of the professional training process.

A sociolinguistic discourse analysis of assimilated English words: a usagebased model of language acquisition

This study will explore how some words from a different language get assimilated into the dialogues of a community or group which speaks a totally different language or dialect. The Angami Nagas community of Nagaland is adopted as the case in point for this study, for they use a number of English words in their regular speaking irrespective of being English educated or not. The study is qualitative based research and the methodology includes the research methods of interviews and document analyses. The study reveals that the understanding of an external language through the use of assimilated words by a community or group with diverse associations with the source language, can lead to a usage-based model of language acquisition. The study discloses that diversity in the articulation of assimilated words cannot be strictly ruled out even in the presence of precision in usage
and meaning. It is also found that, overtime, some assimilated words, in its original essence, get
attached and identified with a group of things by the user community. The study concludes on the
success of using assimilated words within a community or group with accuracy or near accuracy and assigns it as a usage-based model of basic language assimilation which can get remodeled in future studies of more formal language learning. It infers that assimilated words from an external language, used in the correct context, can lead to successful conversation or speech in varying contexts as the words become part of the communication to convey concepts and thoughts. The numerous works on the Angami Nagas, by and large, deal with their socio-cultural, economic and political status as an ethnic community and particularly with mostly their contribution and standing during the British times. In a diverging trend, this study is a pioneering exploration of the sociolinguistic pattern among the Angami Nagas in employing assimilated English words and phrases in their everyday usage.

Innovations in the postoperative management of the third molar and use of biomaterials. A look at different studies

The extraction of third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, is a common surgical procedure in young adults. Given the complexity of this process, different methods were explored to improve healing, including the use of bioactive materials and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF). Recent advances have shown that PRF, especially in its variants such as A-PRF and L-PRF, can significantly accelerate the healing of hard and soft tissues, and is useful in maintaining tissue volume after extraction. This biomaterial has proven to be effective in reducing pain, inflammation and promoting bone regeneration. However, studies on its effectiveness and direct comparisons with natural healing are varied and require more in-depth analysis. The present study evaluated the effectiveness of natural healing compared to the use of PRF, focusing on lower third molar surgeries. Through a longitudinal experimental design, meta-analysis and systematic reviews of the existing literature were performed to identify, compile and compare clinical outcomes between the use of PRF and conventional healing methods. The research highlighted the potential of PRF in improving postoperative management protocols and suggested future directions for research and clinical application of these biomaterials in dentistry and other medical disciplines

Evaluation of the curvature of the mesio-vestibular canals of the mesial roots of lower molars

The correct biomechanical preparation of root canals is fundamental in endodontic therapy and depends on a detailed understanding of the internal anatomy of the teeth. The objective of the study was to evaluate the degree and radius of curvatures of the mesiobuccal canals in the mesial roots of extracted lower first molars from Ecuadorian patients. Seventy lower first molars were analyzed using radiographic techniques and AutoCad 2013 tracing, applying the Schneider and curvature radius methods. The results showed that the majority of the canals presented moderate curvature according to both methods. A statistically significant difference was observed between the angles and radii of curvature. It is concluded that precise knowledge of these curvatures is crucial for the planning and success of endodontic treatment, and it is recommended to consider the application of neutrosophy in future studies to improve measurement accuracy

Evolution of the Impact of the Tax Reform from 2019 to 2023 on the Deduction of Personal Expenses for Individual Taxpayers in Ecuador

The tax reform implemented in Ecuador in 2019 generated important changes in the deduction regime for personal expenses of individual taxpayers. The goal was to increase tax collection, but it had a direct impact on people's tax burden. This study analyzes the evolution of this impact between 2019 and 2023, examining modifications in deduction limits, categories of deductible expenses and effect on tax collection and burden. The results show a progressive decrease in deductions and an increase in the tax burden. In 2019, deductions for education, health, food, clothing and housing were eliminated, setting a limit of 50 % on taxable income. For 2022 the limit was reduced to 10 % and 20 % respectively according to the basic family basket and in 2023 they were totally eliminated and that personal expenses now depend on family charges, this affected middle-high income taxpayers who previously deducted expenses. In summary, the reform had a progressive impact on the reduction of tax benefits for individual taxpayers, facilitating greater collection but also implying a greater tax burden on individuals with medium and high incomes. The effects are evident between 2019 and 2023, although it allows more collection, it negatively affects those who previously deducted personal expenses.

Comparison between carpal and vertebral radiography to know the level of skeletal maturation

The objective of the study is to compare the results between carpal and cervical vertebrae radiographic studies to determine the level of skeletal maturation, using hand and lateral skull radiographs obtained from the digital radiology center “Dental Explorer” in Píllaro, Ecuador, during the period from 2020 to 2022. Radiographs of 79 patients aged between 9 and 16 years were analyzed. The results showed a strong correlation between the cervical and carpal maturation methods, with correlation coefficients of 0.854 in females and 0.827 in males. This finding suggests that both methods are reliable and can be used interchangeably in clinical practice. Additionally, it was observed that chronological age does not always reflect the level of somatic maturation, highlighting the importance of using specific tools to assess skeletal development. These results are relevant for improving diagnosis and treatment in dentistry and orthodontics, avoiding additional radiation exposures

Water balance trends and sustainability risks in municipalities of the Rio Seco watershed, Colombia

This article proposes some considerations on the relationship between the water balance for five municipalities located in the basin of the Seco river, Alto Magdalena region, and the municipality of Beltrán, Cundinamarca, Colombia, and the risk factors for the sustainability of the water supply to which the communities are exposed. For this purpose, a statistical review was made of official sources that record the historical and current status of the minimum and maximum levels of the annual flows of the tributary, and the exponential growth of the population in the region. Risk factors were documented based on direct observation, focus groups and interviews with social and institutional actors. In some municipalities the balance is unfavorable due to factors such as extractivism and the urban explosion, while in others the sustainability of the supply depends on the construction of infrastructure to guarantee the supply in dry weather.

Sports and language integration skill development

Learning to play and learning to communicate in a language are different skills to be acquired through various stages in a cycle. However, the stages in learning to communicate and the stages in the process of becoming skillful in a particular game are similar. This paper studies the nature of the stages of learning and suggests the possibility of doing both at the same time. Physical activities advance students' capability and confidence to take part in a variety of guided or unguided undertakings that become essential to their life, both within and outside of school. Apart from developing sporting skills, physical activities also demand and develop various other associated skills. Indulging in sports and games stands as one the most important avenues for developing these skills. This study aims at establishing the possibility of making optimum use of sports for enhancing and monitoring both sporting and communication skills. The study is based on the hypotheses that communication skills can be developed, monitored and assessed with the help of physical activities and vice versa and that
inter disciplinary learning can be achieved in classrooms through physical activities; and that the physical and communicative skills of students can be successfully monitored and assessed through a systematic and integrated curriculum plan and implementation approach. The study methodology is based on observation and case study with focus groups involving school students. The significance and uniqueness of the study lies in the fact that it discloses the prospect of fostering communication and associated skills in children through sports; and also of bringing teachers of different subjects together
to offer integrated instructions through physical activities and movements. Additionally, this research will contribute to the teaching and learning process pinned on physical activities to minimize boredom and maximize learning among children of all ages.

Special deductions and the hiring of people with disabilities, the effect of ignorance in private companies in Ecuador

To date, the tax reform has gone through several modifications allowing the collection of taxes for the provision of public services, among the changes in the law there have always been tax benefits for hiring employees with disabilities, thus achieving a mutual benefit for both the state and the taxpayer. In particular, the Labour Code was analysed with regard to work for persons with disabilities hired only in the private sector. Equal and dignified employment by promoting the integration of people with disabilities into the labour market, together with existing tax incentives such as tax deductions for both employers and employees. The lack of awareness of these incentives is taken into account due to the low number of private companies that enjoy this benefit and also to the low number of people with disabilities hired. The purpose of this research is to inform in a more simplified way the benefits that companies do not enjoy due to lack of knowledge, making a brief comparison and analysis to promote the right to equal work. This article is developed under a descriptive research methodology with a study technique and comparative analysis based on data from Ecuador.

Evaluating the immunogenic potential of bax protein isoforms as therapeutic targets in oncology: brief report

Through a methodical approach that combines bioinformatics and immunological analysis, detailed genetic sequencing and structural analysis of seven BAX isoforms were conducted. Using databases such as NCBI and Uniprot, and algorithms for sequence alignment and structural predictions, promising features in specific isoforms were identified. Tools like BCPREDS and the Immune Epitope Database helped evaluate the immunogenic potential by mapping epitopes.
The results highlighted that isoforms such as BAX-alpha and BAX-gamma have high immunogenic capacities, making them candidates for the development of targeted vaccines or as direct therapeutic agents. Structural analyses suggested that some isoforms have the capability to integrate into cell membranes and alter signaling pathways, inducing apoptosis selectively in cancer cells.
In summary, this study underscores the importance of BAX isoforms in the evolution of cancer therapy, offering more specific treatment approaches with lower toxicity. These findings encourage a move towards precision medicine in oncology, personalizing treatments based on molecular and genetic profiles to optimize therapeutic efficacy and reduce adverse effects, promising to improve outcomes for patients.

Application of the ARAS Method in Risk Assessment and Mitigation in IVF Procedures

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is an assisted reproduction technique that has enabled many couples to achieve parenthood. Despite its benefits, IVF treatments carry risks and complications that can impact the mother's health and the success of the pregnancy, making a systematic evaluation of safety essential. This study applies the ARAS method to identify and mitigate the main risks associated with IVF, using criteria such as severity, frequency, impact on pregnancy, and recoverability. Among these, implantation failures and spontaneous abortions were identified as the most significant risks, followed by ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). To reduce these risks, an improvement and monitoring plan for IVF treatments is proposed, focused on optimizing safety and effectiveness. It includes advanced monitoring, continuous training, and regular evaluations to adapt practices to the latest research and technologies. Furthermore, the findings suggest that a personalized and evidence-based approach can significantly increase the safety of IVF treatments. Additionally, the importance of considering both medical and psychosocial factors to enhance patient experience and outcomes is emphasized. In conclusion, this study provides a solid foundation for future improvements in IVF practices, ensuring that procedures are performed in the safest and most effective manner possible

Incomplete vaccination in children under 2 years of age at the Tulcán Sur Health Center

Vaccination campaigns are carried out worldwide with a process of great importance in disease prevention. Within the population, children under two years of age are a priority and are part of the first vaccination schedules that are developed. The research analyzed the situation of the children of Tulcán Sur in 198 families. To obtain results, theoretical and empirical methods were used, where the application of a survey made it possible to obtain various data of interest for the analysis. The results show the existence of a low education even on the knowledge and mastery of the importance of vaccines, which together with the economic situations and remoteness in several cases, cause an incomplete vaccination schedule in a significant number of children under two years. This situation shows the need to achieve broader and more systematic work by health personnel on the population in order to achieve greater participation in vaccination processes with emphasis on children under two years of age. The lack of knowledge on the part of the population about vaccines and the still existence of myths that reduce the credibility of vaccination and undermine the process and its effectiveness in preventing diseases are evident

Hygienic-sanitary practices: contaminating factors of water reservoirs in the "Pianguapi" sector, Esmeraldas, Ecuador

Introduction: Water is an essential resource of public health and environmental importance that governs the life of communities and civilizations. Currently, the contamination of water in its various sources such as the overflow of liquids at the household level, agricultural and livestock work, and the lack of a sewage system in the communities allow the contamination of supplies to originate.
Methodology: An observational, analytical, cross-sectional study was carried out on 50 families, selected through simple random probability sampling using a hygienic-sanitary inspection form.
Results: According to the results obtained, 100% of the participating families find themselves in the need to store drinking water due to the non-continuity in the distribution process from the main network and risk practices adopted in the community that contribute to the contamination of the reservoirs were determined, because 36% carry out annual cleanings. 38% and 52% do not cover or partially cover the container, 36% keep them dirty and 70% use jugs for intra-household distribution, in addition to the environmental effects due to a high use of latrines and lack of connection to the sewer network, coupled with this with 14% of families burying garbage.
Conclusions: The hygienic-sanitary practices that are evidenced in this sector contribute to the contamination and poor storage of water, which generates a public health problem due to the risk of suffering diseases from its consumption and use, evidencing the need for intervention in terms of prevention and health promotion in safe water issues.

Discrepancy analysis in university curriculum evaluation

Curriculum evaluation in university education is crucial to improve the quality of professional education. This paper proposes a rubric to evaluate the university curriculum in order to obtain accurate information on its current state and to guide its restructuring according to the needs of updating and institutional demands. Emphasis is placed on the adoption of an objective methodological approach as opposed to subjective criteria. The methodology used, called "discrepancy analysis", is based on a theoretical model of an ideal curriculum with 10 components, each with a weighted value according to its importance. The evaluation of the curriculum is based on how close or far it is from this ideal model, reflecting its effectiveness and quality. The professional profile stands out as a fundamental source in the development of the curriculum, and must be relevant, comprehensive and consistent with the educational concept adopted by the institution. A rubric is presented to evaluate the professional profile in terms of coherence, relevance, completeness, clarity and structure. The constituent elements of the curriculum, such as the situational diagnosis, the doctrinal framework, the institutional decisions and the scope of work performance, are evaluated to ensure their alignment with the professional training objectives and the needs of the labor market. The organizational structure of the curriculum, the generation of curricular units, the design of the syllabus, the writing of summaries and the recommendations for the development of syllabi are crucial aspects that are evaluated to ensure the coherence and effectiveness of the university curriculum.

Demonstration of the effectiveness of the bionator as a functional appliance used for the treatment of class II malocclusion

Angle class II malocclusion is a condition in which the upper teeth are positioned in front of the lower teeth, usually due to abnormal growth of the lower jaw in relation to the upper jaw, or due to a receding of the lower teeth. . The use of Bionator is one of the many orthopedic devices that are used today for the correction of class II, division I, presents alterations in the jaw, teeth and muscles. This research aims to highlight the effectiveness of the bionator as a functional device widely used for the treatment of class II malocclusion, through the presentation of a clinical case. A minimal control experimental study was carried out to determine the possible morphological changes in a patient with Angle Class II division 1 with the use of the Bionator, in a period of 12 months. An observational, descriptive and retrospective study was carried out. The use of the Bionator proved to be a favorable alternative for the correction of the patient's overbite and profile. Success is directly related to the patient's collaboration, not requiring correction with fixed appliances in this case. There was an improvement in the patient's facial profile and a pleasant aesthetic smile at the end of the treatment.

Enhanced cryptography algorithm and improved butterfly algorithm for secured data transmission in wireless sensor network

Due of their many uses, WSNs (Wireless Sensor Networks) have drawn the greatest interest, but,
existing methods do not support reliable data transfer. They face issues in energy consumptions and routing on shortest paths over WSNs. Also, they are incapable to stopping compromised nodes with legitimate identities from launching attacks. This study handled this issue with suggested schema based
on CHs (Cluster Heads) and using IBO (Improved Butterfly Optimization) and DAES (Double key based Advanced Encryption Standard) algorithms. The main phases of this work contain system model, security model, CH node selection and shortest path routing with secured data transmission. Initially,
system model is constructed via number of sensor nodes on the given setup. Then, CH nodes are
selected using IBO algorithm based on best fitness values. These selections of CHs consider minimum delays and energy consumptions with maximum throughputs for establishing security assurances and energy conservations at sensor nodes along with secure protocol. The security levels for quick data
transfers over multi-path routes in WSNs are improved using DAES. Attack nodes are eliminated for successful transfers. The intermediate layer CHs create routing backbones to gather, combine, and convey data from member nodes. The simulation results demonstrate that the proposed IBO-DAES framework outperforms existing approaches in terms of throughputs, network longevity, data transfer rates, and energy consumptions.

Umbilical reconstruction without flap after abdominoplasty

The article discusses changes in the appearance and location of the umbilicus (navel) as individuals age, due to factors such as physiological changes, trauma, surgical scars, birth defects, and more. The umbilicus is described as a significant aesthetic element in the abdominal wall, contributing to the overall appearance of the abdomen. Procedures like abdominoplasty are highlighted as surgeries that can significantly impact the aesthetics of the navel, often resulting in unnatural or unsightly appearances. The article emphasizes the importance of achieving a natural and aesthetically pleasing navel during abdominoplasty. It mentions that various techniques have been developed for umbilical reconstruction after abdominoplasty surgeries, with the goal of creating an ideal navel appearance. These techniques are categorized and listed in Table 1, showing the diversity of approaches to umbilical reconstruction. A new technique for umbilical reconstruction is proposed in the article, characterized by its distinctiveness as it does not involve the use of flaps. The steps of this technique involve careful planning, breaking down the circular scar of the navel into triangles, and suturing to create a natural-looking navel. Advantages of this technique include minimal tension in the sutures, utilization of skin management lines in healing, and improved naturalness and size adaptability. The article reports results from applying this new technique to 537 patients over six years, with a focus on clinical and demographic variables. Complications were found to be infrequent, with hypertrophic scars and suture dehiscence being the most common. Patient satisfaction was notably high, with 94% of patients reporting satisfaction with the surgical procedure. In conclusion, the article highlights the success and advantages of the proposed umbilical reconstruction technique without flaps, providing positive aesthetic outcomes with low complication rates and high patient satisfaction. This technique offers an alternative approach to achieving a natural and pleasing navel appearance after abdominoplasty surgeries.

Clinical simulation is a tool to train reasoning, however, its evaluation remains challenging. In the present study, we evaluated the scenario design template for clinical reasoning associated with using an observation scale applied to medical students in two sequential simulation scenarios.
Materials and methods: Two simulation scenarios with 4 levels of complexity were designed to manage sepsis in adult patients, where 12 groups of 8 students participated. These simulations were recorded and later analyzed by qualified observers through a guideline built on the conceptual proposals of Croskerry, Braun, and Pennaforte.
Results: The scenarios were carried out in an average of 12 minutes. Most students established the diagnosis and initial management through the partial collection of information, showing control of intuitive reasoning in 98 % of the cases, whereas only 10,4 % achieved the analytical processes.
Conclusion: The design of simulation scenarios composed of different levels of complexity could promote the development of clinical reasoning. Using an observation guideline allowed the analysis of the clinical reasoning process in realistic environments and without interruptions and could be used to guide debriefings.

Examining marketing approaches and overcoming challenges in the cashew nut processing sector of tamil nadu: a comprehensive review

Tamil Nadu stands as one of India's leading cashew nut producers and processors, driven by robust export potential and domestic demand. In Cuddalore district alone, approximately 675 cashew nut processing units are scattered across the region. These mills predominantly rely on manual labor, offering substantial employment prospects for rural communities. However, the well-being and health of the workers in these processing units are often bargained for the old-style tools and paraphernalia. Remarkably, research regarding occupational health and the ergonomic aspects of work equipment within these SM (Small & Medium) cashew nut dispensation units in Cuddalore district has been conspicuously scarce. This study seeks to evaluate the existing working conditions concerning the musculoskeletal health of cashew workers in these units, shedding light on an underexplored area. The researcher has meticulously gathered and analyzed 92 reviews pertaining to cashew nut processing units, categorizing 35 of them into seven key themes: the concept of cashew processing units, the cost associated with processing units, perceived industry pressures and challenges, compatibility and customer influence, digital marketing strategies and mediums, financial performance within cashew nut processing units, and the acceptance of technology models.

Financial analysis of liquidity and its relationship with the profitability of the textile company Creditex

The objective of the research article was to determine the relationship between liquidity and profitability of the textile company Creditex. The present research was based on a quantitative, retrospective, non-experimental, cross-sectional approach. The population equal to the sample was constituted by the financial statements of the textile company Creditex included in an inquiry period of 6 years (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020) obtained through reports published by the stock market superintendence (SMV). It was evidenced that there is no significant relationship between the liquidity and profitability variables through the analysis of their dimensions current liquidity and economic and financial profitability (Sig= 0,260 and 00,734 respectively) and absolute liquidity with economic and financial profitability (Sig= 0,356 and 0,384 respectively). these results supported the null hypothesis of study in terms of the two dimensions evaluated by variable (current liquidity, absolute liquidity, economic profitability and financial profitability). However, it is recommended that in future research correlations be made between other dimensions related to the study variable such as the acid ratio, liquidity ratio and profitability on sales, these being subscales of the study variables, offering a more radial analysis of the same.

Generational change in ceramic handicraft activity: Proposals for sustainable local and cultural development

The contribution refers to the generational change in the pottery handicraft activity of a rural community, the effect of this on the local and cultural development of the community, under a qualitative approach with application of the ethnographic method of interpretative character, applying techniques such as: life history, structured interview and observation. The information collected was processed in the software Atlas. Ti. The results show that young people have little knowledge about the process of making clay handicrafts, which is why they show little interest, since the knowledge has not been transmitted to them from an early age. In addition, the absence of schools or workshops that teach handicrafts aggravates the current situation. Traditions create a deep connection with roots, family and cultural values, which are necessary to persevere their identity and cultural heritage. The main activity to generate income is the production of handicrafts; however, the intermediaries that buy them do so at low cost, directly affecting the community. The problem lies in the lack of marketing channels, updated means of transportation and the absence of national and international web platforms to make the products visible. It is concluded that the deterioration in the generational replacement in the artisanal community over the years is attributed to the fact that young people do not perceive artisanal activity as a "business"; they choose to migrate to other cities, looking for new job offers and the possibility of obtaining professional training in other areas.

Rectal ozone therapy in the treatment of pain syndrome due to Lumbar Disc Herniation

Lumbar disc herniation is the most frequent cause of radicular pain and reason for consultation in our setting. Rectal ozone treatment has proven to be effective because it acts on cell metabolism, producing substances capable of relieving pain through different mechanisms, since they improve the intracellular redox state. A descriptive, longitudinal, prospective study was carried out in patients with pain syndrome due to lumbar disc herniation who attended the Department of Traditional Natural Medicine of the Carlos J. Finlay Military Hospital from January 2021 to December 2022 to evaluate the effectiveness of rectal ozone therapy. The sample was 100 patients who met the inclusion criteria, they were divided into two groups. The first one received 15 sessions of ozone rectally and the second treatment with analgesics and anti-inflammatories. The male sex predominated, as well as the ages between 50 and 59 years. The group that was administered ozone had a better response and 80 % of the cases presented improvement while in the group with pharmacological treatment only 52 % had relief of symptoms, in most of the patients pain relief was verified from the sixth treatment session. There was a significant improvement in the quality of life of the patients undergoing ozone treatment and adverse reactions were minimal, although more frequent in patients with drug treatment, thus demonstrating the effectiveness of ozone therapy.

Business Conditions in OECD Countries (2010-2019): A Longitudinal Analysis Applying Machine Learning

INTRODUCTION: This study aims to understand the crucial factors influencing business conditions in OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) nations from 2010 to 2019, with a specific emphasis on variables related to health.
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to analyze how education, governance, health, and the natural environment influenced the shaping of business conditions in OECD member countries between 2010 and 2019.
METHODS: The research employs a quantitative, longitudinal approach and utilizes data from the Legatum Prosperity Index and CO2 emissions. Techniques such as supervised learning algorithms, including neural networks, decision trees, and linear regression with Ridge regularization, are employed for analysis.
RESULTS: The algorithms successfully predict over 83% of the variability in business conditions across 36 OECD countries. Key findings reveal that heightened protection of the natural environment adversely affects business conditions, indicating greater challenges for businesses in regions with stringent environmental regulations. Moreover, OECD countries exhibit the most favourable business conditions, particularly excelling in health and living standards.
CONCLUSION: this research advances our understanding of the intricate relationship between socio-economic and environmental factors and their impact on business conditions. It provides a valuable framework for policymakers and businesses alike to navigate the complexities of fostering a conducive environment for economic growth and development.

Knowledge and attitudes about essential newborn care in women experiencing motherhood for the first time

For new mothers, the arrival of a newborn to the family is one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences. However, it can also cause moments of uncertainty and anxiety, especially with respect to the basic things to give to the newborn; in this context, the present study aims to determine whether the knowledge and attitudes about essential newborn care in women experiencing motherhood for the first time are different. For this purpose, a quantitative approach, non-experimental design, cross-sectional and correlational level was used; the instrument was a questionnaire, whose reliability index was a Cronbach's Alpha 0,891; the sample consisted of 200 primiparous mothers from a public health institution and 200 primiparous mothers from a private health institution, during the year 2022. The results show a high level of knowledge of 94 % in the public institution and 96 % in the private institution, and a high level of attitude of 70 % in the public hospital and 76 % in the private institution. At the inferential level, the Mann-Whitney U test (z=11492) and (p=0,582) indicate that there are statistically significant differences between the level of knowledge; on the other hand, (z=31037) and (p=0,894) show that there are no statistically significant differences in the level of attitude. It is concluded that the level of knowledge of the new mothers is different, however, the level of attitude is similar to that of the first mothers.

Nutritional, anthropometric characteristics and the probability of suffering disorders of eating behavior in classical dancers in four academies of the central department

Background: Eating behavior disorders (EDs) are mental health disorders characterized by pathological behavior towards food intake and an obsession with weight control, accompanied by distortion of the perception of body image.
Methods: An observational, descriptive and cross-sectional study with a quantitative approach was carried out, which included 4 classical dance academies in the Central department, specifically classical dance dancers within the age range 12 to 18 years, whose parents signed an informed consent. Poorly completed surveys and male dancers were excluded. Sociodemographic data, eating and anthropometric characteristics, and the probability of having eating behavior disorders were analyzed using two scales, SCOFF and BULIT. The work regarding the bioethical principles of research to manage the personal data of the participants, only those data strictly necessary to solve the research objectives were taken. A formal letter was provided to the parents to confirm that their daughters could be part of the investigation. The study was presented to the Ethics Committee of the Universidad del Pacifico.
Results: Of 91 female classical dancers surveyed, 17 (19 %) were 12 years old; 27 (30 %) are from Academy A; 89 % (n=81) do eat fruit; 86 % (n=78) vegetables; 100 % (n=91) consume meat; dairy products and derivatives 98 % (n=89); legumes it was obtained that 82 % (n=75) consume it; 88 % (n=80) consume sugary drinks; and in terms of the consumption of pure water, 60 % (n=55) make adequate consumption. For the anthropometric data, 43 % (n=39) weigh between 50 and 59.9 kg; 57 % (n=52) measure between 151 and 160 cm, 85 % (n=77) have adequate height, 70 % (n=64) of classical dance students are at risk of suffering behavioral disorders food according to the SCOFF scale; while 99 % (n=90) of the dancers do not present any risk of suffering from Bulimia Nervosa according to the BULIT scale.
Conclusion: We conclude that classical dance dancers are likely to suffer from eating disorders, since this population is considered highly exposed, especially in the adolescent stage, since even today there is social pressure on the canon of beauty that they must achieve and sustain to be accepted and included.

Consumer confidence and e-commerce in the San Hilarion Urbanization in the year 2022

E-commerce has become a fundamental part of modern life, but consumer confidence in online transactions is essential. In a study conducted in the San Hilarion Urbanization in Lima in 2022, consumer confidence was found to have a low but significant correlation with e-commerce. This means that as consumer confidence increases, their willingness to make online purchases also strengthens. Consumer confidence was found to be influenced by factors such as the payment methods available in e-commerce. When consumers trust online payment methods, they are more willing to make online purchases. Online security also plays an important role; the more secure consumers feel online, the greater their trust in e-commerce. In addition, consumer trust toward online media also affects their willingness to engage in e-commerce. As consumers trust online media, they become more comfortable browsing and shopping online. Recommendations include emphasizing communication with consumers, implementing security certifications, ensuring data integrity, and providing required information. These measures can help strengthen consumer confidence and foster further growth in e-commerce.

Perceptions and Beliefs of Romantic Love in Pedagogy Students: A Qualitative Analysis on Relationship Dynamics and Gender Stereotypes

This article stems from research conducted in the field of psychology, focusing on romantic relationships and the elements that play a role in romantic love. The aim was to analyze the beliefs about romantic love expressed by women studying pedagogy. Regarding the methodology, qualitative research with a post-positivist approach and a descriptive method was employed. The technique used was a bibliographic review to address the sample, which consisted of students in pedagogical careers. The results allowed for the determination that women's perceptions vary and are diverse, falling into different categories and codes derived from the conducted reviews. Additionally, the findings reveal the recognized figure of the female stereotype in society, which is not accepted by the participants. It can be concluded that the role of women stands out in the narratives when facing different situations determined in a toxic relationship, where possession and control over the partner are viewed as power devices, similarly to male dominance that contributes to gender-based violence in romantic relationships.

Challenges encountered by cashew nut processing industry

Tamandu has emerged as one of India's premier cashew nut producers and processors. The thriving
export potential and robust local demand have fueled the rapid expansion of the cashew industry in
this region. With approximately 675 cashew nut processing units scattered across Tamil Nadu, these
establishments have primarily embraced labor-intensive operations, offering valuable employment
opportunities to rural communities. However, it's worth noting that only 576 processing units have
managed to contribute data for this study. The collected data predominantly revolves around
challenges related to various facets of cashew nut processing, including activity-based challenges,
issues concerning workers' families, social problems, worker hygiene challenges, hurdles encountered
within the processing units, as well as difficulties tied to workers' wages and benefits. Furthermore,
the investigation into occupational health, ergonomic considerations, and the development of
ergonomically designed work equipment in small and medium-scale cashew nut processing units in
Tamil Nadu has remained largely unexplored. As a result, this research seeks to shed light on the risk
of musculoskeletal issues prevalent in these cashew processing units, aiming to address an important
aspect of workers' well-being in this vital industry.

Environmental impact of the páramo in Colombia: an approach from the FPEIR model

The Colombian páramos offer various ecosystem services and are considered strategic ecosystems for the sustainable development of the country and its inhabitants. In recent decades, their impact in social, economic, and environmental terms has become more evident due to increasing anthropogenic intervention. This document aims to address how to apply the FPEIR model to identify the impacts on the Sumapaz and Santurbán páramos resulting from human activities. To achieve this goal, a qualitative methodology based on documentary review and analysis of specific cases identified in the Global Atlas of Environmental Justice, the Observatory of Mining Conflicts in Latin America, and the Observatory of Environmental Conflicts in Colombia was employed. The selected cases were analyzed using the DPSIR framework (Driving forces – Pressure – State – Impact – Response). This allowed establishing that the main threats in these ecosystems correspond to extractive activities that have caused imbalances, negatively affecting soil quality and water sources, rapid decline in biodiversity, and the medium and long-term quality of life of the inhabitants of these regions. Among the main shortcomings for páramo protection, the lack of economic resources, limited monitoring of management plans, heterogeneity in the implementation of conservation strategies, and a lack of clarity in the roles and responsibilities of involved actors are crucial issues affecting páramo conservation in Colombia. Overcoming these challenges requires a coordinated approach and appropriate allocation of resources to ensure the sustainability and integrity of these unique ecosystems.

Developing clinical decision making in stroke through virtual online simulation: automated asynchronous or instructor-led synchronous feedback? A randomized controlled trial

Aim: to determine whether asynchronous virtual simulation with automatic feedback enhances learning about clinical decision-making in stroke compared with synchronous simulation with instructor-guided feedback in 4th-year medical students. We hypothesize that instructor-guided feedback drives better learning than automatic feedback.
Methodology: a quantitative randomized controlled parallel study was designed using the CONSORT extension to simulation studies. Twenty 4th year undergraduate medical students were divided into two groups. One group performed virtual simulations with instructor-guided feedback, and the other worked autonomously with automatic feedback. We administered a knowledge score test survey before and after applying the intervention bundle and a usefulness perception survey. Two-way repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to compare changes in performance.
Results: the results of the two-way ANOVA on the performance level showed no significant changes between groups and between the first and third scenarios (p=0,428). Analysis of the simple main effect showed no significant difference between groups in the post-test (p =0,086) and no significant difference after the third scenario in the Synchronous (p = 0,001) and Asynchronous (p = 0,009) groups. The most remarkable improvement was the International Normalized Ratio that contraindicates thrombolysis (70 % improvement), followed by the first-line drug for hypertension and the platelet value that contraindicates thrombolysis (25 % improvement for both).

Business science: Overproduction, self-citations and Article processing charge (APC)

Business science is a field that has been facing some challenges recently, especially when it comes to overproduction (hyperprolific), excessive self-citations, and charging for publications in open-access journals. To shed light on these issues, a recent study was conducted based on three cases. The first case focused on super-producing authors, where an advanced search strategy was used to identify the ten most productive authors in Brazil in the last five years. The study found that these authors published a paper on average every 2,68 days, a staggering rate. Interestingly, these authors had a direct relationship and published their articles in collaboration, always in the same journal. The papers all dealt with RIFM fragrance ingredient safety assessment, and while they were typical mass production, the citations were very low. The second case examined self-citations, where a research group published 15 papers in the last five years, with seven of them published in a journal that the group had purchased. The analysis found that two of the most representative authors in the research group obtained a significant number of self-citations. Finally, the study looked at the costs associated with publishing in open-access journals. The analysis found that some journals charge many publishing fees for accessing and indexing on platforms, which can be a significant barrier to disseminating research. Overall, these cases highlight the challenges faced by the science industry and the need for measures to ensure fair and transparent practices.

Management and succession in family businesses: Bibliometric review

Family businesses represent a fundamental pillar in most global economic structures and one of the central topics of study is intergenerational succession. This research analyses the scientific production on family business management and succession using bibliometric methods. Metadata from 103 documents published in the Scopus database between 1999-2023 were analyzed. The results show that the field has been expanding since 1999, with exponential growth since 2015, led by authors from the United States, Italy and Spain, in specialized journals such as the Journal of Family Business Strategy. The scientific mapping identified family governance, succession planning and agency theory as central themes, revealing the emphasis on studying institutionalization and generational transfer in these companies. The spectroscopy rescued seminal contributions on unique resources, agency costs and patient capital by Penrose, Jensen & Meckling and Sirmon & Hitt, which laid solid theoretical foundations on the strategic particularities of family firms. The evidence points to an emerging academic community dedicated to the study of management and succession in family firms, with previous influential contributions, which should be further explored.

Methods: the study was conducted from June 2018 to June 2020 in children aged 1 to 18 years in the Consolación del Sur Municipality. It was descriptive and retrospective. The universe was constituted by the total number of patients admitted to the Pediatrics service with a diagnosis of acute respiratory infection during the years 2018 to 2020 and the sample was formed by those with a diagnosis of pneumonia.
Results: male sex and age of 5-9 years predominated. The most frequent signs and symptoms were cough, fever, rales and anorexia. In the leukogram, leukocytosis and lymphocytosis were predominant. The diagnostic criteria with the highest positivity in the clinical prediction scale used were age older than nine months, lesions in multiple sites, perihilar, poorly defined with peribronchial interstitial infiltrate in the chest X-ray and leukocytosis and lymphocytosis among the laboratory criteria.
Conclusions: the correct interpretation of the leukogram and a clear vision of its importance for the diagnostic process are key elements that guarantee a level of health care with the required quality to achieve an adequate care work.

Comparison of academic performance of university students in differential and integral calculus in virtual and face-to-face teaching modalities

The objective was to determine whether there are differences in academic performance in differential and integral calculus in undergraduate engineering students, under the virtual and face-to-face modality. The research was non-experimental, descriptive, cross-sectional and quantitative. The sample was non-probabilistic, made up of 60 students in face-to-face mode and 71 in virtual mode of the Industrial Engineering and Computer Science specialties. The study of the academic performance variable was carried out with the minutes of the 2019-II and 2020-I semesters, where medians were evaluated by evaluation criteria, finding that there are significant differences in the evidence of knowledge and product; while for the performance component there is no significant difference for both careers. Likewise, statistically significant differences were found between the academic performance in person and online in the students of each of the engineering careers. Finally, statistically significant differences were found between academic performance in person and online in students of both engineering careers. It can be concluded that the students who took the subject online have a better academic performance than those who took it in person, but it must be specified that said performance is regular.

Remote simulation: A qualitative study on clinical reasoning and cognitive errors from the students' perspective

Introduction: Clinical reasoning is a crucial competency for medical practice and also a complex theory that is susceptible to cognitive errors. It is usually taught with clinical cases, in clinical settings, without technologies and in a practical manner rather than from a conceptual perspective.
Given the need to improve its teaching in the undergraduate medical curriculum during the pandemic, we hypothesized that medical students participating in an online simulation and reflective practice course could benefit from a practical and theoretical approach to the clinical reasoning process.
Material and Methods: A four-week online course, based on synchronous and asynchronous online simulation and reflective practice, was developed to promote metacognition among participants. The course was delivered to 8 sixth-year medical students as an elective module. A questionnaire consisting of four open-ended questions was designed to explore knowledge about clinical reasoning and cognitive errors, and was administered at the beginning and end of the course. A qualitative analysis of the responses was carried out using Berelson's content analysis method.
Results: At the end of the course, students changed their understanding of the concept of clinical reasoning, considering it more as a process and identifying the dual nature described in one of the theories of clinical decision making. They also changed their knowledge of cognitive errors, attributing them not only to lack of knowledge, and understanding that they can actively use some strategies to reduce cognitive biases. Discussion: This study confirms that undergraduate students positively change their concept of clinical reasoning and their knowledge about this cognitive process and the cognitive errors that occur in it after a course that includes online simulation and reflection.

Benefits of the Special Tax Regime Special Economic and Social Zone versus the Ordinary Income Tax Regime: An empirical study

The objective of the work was to comparatively analyze the benefits of the special tax regime Special Economic and Social Zone versus the ordinary regime that the company Indupalmarito S.A.S. obtains in the payment of income tax according to Law 1955 of 2019. The methodology had a quantitative approach with non-experimental and deductive design, which is applied to an intentional sample of fourteen agro-industrial companies of the oil palm sector of the Catatumbo region. The survey was used to collect information from the companies in the sector, and a documentary review was conducted to analyze the company's tax burden under study during the 2021 and 2022 periods. The results revealed that the requirements and tax benefits established by Law 1955 of 2019 were evident; however, it was found that some companies did not know the details of the regulations, requirements, regions benefited, deadlines, and purposes of the tax benefit that was proposed to increase employment generation and economic development. It was concluded that the tax benefits allow most of the companies in the sector to increase the hiring of direct personnel by at least 15,00 % and, at the same time, increase the profit after tax.

Hospital culture and social responsibility: a mixed study of the main lines for its development

Social responsibility is a key element in meeting the needs of the context in which an organization operates. In the healthcare sector, attention to this concept has involved studying internal aspects, as well as the contribution to its implementation in the management of processes and practices of the organization's agents. In order to analyze the relationship between social responsibility and hospital culture, a mixed study was conducted in two phases. First, a focused ethnography was implemented, followed by a systematic review study. The results showed a poor conceptual development of the category, the importance of organizational ethics, the values in the regulation exerted by hospital culture on social responsibility, and the need for the dual nature of social responsibility in terms of its design as an instrument or strategy of the organization. It is concluded that achieving a better operationalization of social responsibility is necessary for its reproduction in the hospital culture, as such responsibility must be promoted as an individual practice based on a solid worldview, and from this achievement, consolidated as a set of identifiable actions. Thus, quality must be a crossing in the design and description of the dimensions and indicators of social responsibility and an organizational value.

Service quality and customer satisfaction at the mype "Creditos Becerra", Lima, 2022

People usually start committing to quality service with great enthusiasm, but then companies face difficulties in maintaining a positive attitude or retaining employees in the company, after giving satisfactory results, they do not feel that reciprocity from the company, so they leave to find better job opportunities in other companies. These factors clearly affect customer satisfaction, and the repercussions are reflected in the lack of attention to customer needs; long response times, lack of empathy with the customer, referring the customer from one section to another, not providing humanized attention, not offering a solution to the customer's problem. In this sense, the study was oriented to measure the ratio between customer satisfaction and service quality in the Mype "Créditos Becerra", Lima, 2022. Its result was a bilateral significance of 0,000 < 0,005, that is, the alternative hypothesis is approved, there is a correlation between customer satisfaction and service quality, in addition a correlation index of 0,953 is observed, demonstrating a high reciprocity between both variables in question.
It was concluded that the enthusiasm for quality should be nurtured in people in order not to lose, and there is much dependence on the part of the guides of the companies, all in order to maintain optimal consumer satisfaction.

Quality of service and customer satisfaction in Peruvian food markets

Final consumers still go to food markets to purchase basic family products; this purchase attitude is more frequent in low-income sectors because prices are relatively low, and in many cases service quality and customer satisfaction are sacrificed. In this context, the objective of this study was to determine to what extent service quality and customer satisfaction are related in Peruvian food markets. Through a quantitative approach at a descriptive and correlational level, the sample consisted of 183 buyers, and the instrument was a questionnaire with 16 items, whose reliability index was a Cronbach's Alpha of 0,996. As a result, a coefficient (r=0,990) and a significance value of 0,000 were obtained. It was concluded that there is a strong relationship between the proposed variables; it is inferred that if the service quality variable increases, so will the customer satisfaction variable, in the same magnitude and vice versa. It is recommended to propose strategies and policies to standardize the quality of the service provided, and thus leverage the satisfaction that the customer perceives for the provision of such services and the consequent increase in the sale of the products sold there.

Level of Tax Knowledge and its Impact on Tax Culture in Students from 4th to 5th Grade of Secondary Level of the IEP "Colegio Nacional Imperial", Imperial District of Cañete

This study addresses the issue of the relationship between tax knowledge, attitudes towards taxes, and participation in community activities among 4th and 5th-grade students at the "Colegio Nacional Imperial." The overall objective was to examine how tax knowledge impacts students' attitudes and community participation. To achieve this, a quantitative approach was employed, and a questionnaire was administered to 376 students. The analysis of the results highlights a significant positive correlation (Rho = 0,658) between tax knowledge and attitudes towards taxes. Students with a higher level of tax knowledge tend to exhibit more positive attitudes towards taxes, recognizing their importance in funding essential community services. Additionally, a positive correlation between tax knowledge and participation in community activities was found (Rho = 0,524). Students who better understand tax concepts are more willing to engage in community initiatives, demonstrating their civic responsibility and contribution to local development. Furthermore, a positive correlation was identified between attitudes towards taxes and participation in community activities (Rho = 0,525). Students with positive attitudes towards taxes are more motivated to participate in community projects, recognizing the link between taxes and local improvements. These results underscore the significance of tax education in cultivating positive attitudes and promoting active student participation in the community. In conclusion, this study demonstrates the significant influence of tax knowledge on students' attitudes and community engagement. The observed positive correlations suggest that effective tax education can act as a catalyst for fostering positive attitudes towards taxes and inspiring active participation in community projects. These findings support the need to strengthen tax education in schools to shape informed, responsible, and community-minded citizens.

Risk of suffering from eating disorders students in the 1st and 2nd semester of the Medicine degree

Background: eating Disorders are complex psychiatric illnesses caused by various factors, mainly during adolescence and youth. The symptomatology involves excessive concern about food, weight, and/or body image and unhealthy habits to control or reduce body weight.
Methods: a cross-sectional descriptive observational study was conducted using the SCOFF and EAT-26 instruments to assess eating behavior in first and second- semester university students at a private university in Asunción, Paraguay. The questionnaire, consisting of closed-ended multiple-choice questions, was processed using Microsoft Office's Excel, enabling a detailed analysis of the sample.
Results: the sample of 83 students, predominantly composed of women (74,7 %) aged between 18 and 24, showed a 41 % risk of eating disorders according to the SCOFF scale and 20 % according to the EAT-26 scale. Notably, there is a significant prevalence of women at higher risk of eating disorders compared to men. The results underscore the severity of these disorders and highlight specific risk factors in university students, such as academic stress and social pressure to maintain a slim body.
Conclusion: findings from this cross-sectional study suggest a moderate prevalence of eating disorder risk in first and second-semester medical students, particularly among women. The EAT-26 survey, encompassing more items and response options, identified a 20 % risk, while the briefer and dichotomous SCOFF questionnaire reported 41 % risk prevalence. However, due to the cross-sectional design and the nature of the instruments, these findings should be interpreted cautiously. Longitudinal studies with comprehensive diagnostic assessments are needed to draw more robust conclusions about the true prevalence and incidence of eating disorders in this population.

Estimation of effective rigidity in reinforced concrete structures through modal identification tests and sclerometry

It is currently known that the structural elements of a building can crack due to structural failures under service loads, due to frequent low-intensity earthquakes or during the first moments of a severe earthquake, which could result in cracked sections when the action of the earthquake occurs. of maximum intensity, for such considerations, the Peruvian norm of seismic analysis does not contemplate cracked sections for seismic analysis. The purpose of this study was to estimate the effective stiffness factors of 4 reinforced concrete buildings. The research has a quantitative approach of non-experimental design, the sample is made up of 4 reinforced concrete buildings in the city of Juliaca, to which sclerometry and modal identification tests were carried out with X16 - 1D sensors to obtain compressive strength. and natural periods of field vibration respectively. Numerical models were obtained with their real concrete resistance considering the existing partitions, to which stiffness reduction factors will be applied using international codes and iterations to approximate their natural periods to the natural periods obtained by modal identification. The results show that there is a difference in natural periods of vibration between the numerical model with real resistances considering the effects of the partitioning and those obtained with modal identification tests in a range of 5 % to 30 %, which shows that the fundamental period field vibration is greater than projected.

Improvement strategy for the improvement of the professional pedagogical performance of teachers in the teaching of emotional integration

Latin American educational systems have favored efforts aimed at improving the quality of education, and in this purpose, the variable "pedagogical professional performance of the teacher" has been identified as very influential and decisive for the achievement of a qualitative leap in school management. The fulfillment of the objective of the "E" Study Plan in force in the Cuban Medical School, aimed at an adequate doctor-patient-family-community relationship in the subject Clinical Propedeutics and Medical Semiology (PCSM), requires a constant process of updating their knowledge, skills and values. The preparation of the clinical history, highlighting the psychosocial history, allows the student to integrate the semiographic findings with the emotional, temporo-spatial events that particularize each individual. Theoretical methods allow identifying different problems related to the integration of these aspects, we propose as Objective: To design an improvement strategy for the improvement of teachers' pedagogical professional performance in the teaching of emotional integration of the subject Clinical Propedeutics and Medical Semiology, of the FCM "Miguel Enríquez". The research agreed to define: emotion and emotional integration and to design the strategy through the AELI® KINETEST protocol to incorporate in the clinical history the semiography of emotions and to complement the physical examination with the use of the muscle test.

Determination of non-IgE antibodies and expression of cytokine and FoxP3 genes in asthma

Introduction: the inflammatory cascade in asthma involves cells of the innate and adaptive response of the immune system, in addition to molecular mediators such as antibodies, cytokines, chemokines, and costimulatory and regulatory signals corresponding to each of the cellular subpopulations that orchestrate this process.
Objective: to determine the concentration of IgA, IgM and IgG antibodies and the expression of cytokine genes TNFα, IFNγ, TGF-β 1, IL-10, IL-1 α, IL-1β and IL-6 and transcription factor FoxP3 in blood mononuclear cells stimulated in vitro, case-control studies were carried out in asthmatic children and adults respectively.
Methods: the study was conducted in Pinar del Río, Cuba, from 2015 to 2019. Samples were taken from 735 asthmatic children for antibody quantification. For the expression of cytokine genes, samples were taken from 18 adults from the Immunology clinic.
Results: significant differences were found in increasing order of IgM, IgA and IgG antibodies in favor of asthmatic children; and lower values of cytokine and FoxP3 expression in adult asthmatics. A predominance of a Th1 pattern was observed in controls compared to asthmatics, where the latter's predisposition to a Th2 response pattern is known. Therefore, the lower expression of non-Th2 cytokine genes suggests complex cellular and molecular interactions in asthmatic adults.
Conclusions: a lower expression of cytokines other than Th2 was evident in the blood mononuclear cells of adult asthmatics.

Incidence of work stress on the work environment in the company DICOLAIC S.A. de Latacunga, year 2023

Stress and work climate are two important factors in the organizational environment, as they determine patterns of conduct, behavior, performance and productivity. It’s important for organizations to study these variables with special emphasis on resource management, the most important of which is the human being, known as human capital. From the collected information, and according to the questionnaires and their scales, both standardized by international organizations and their professionals team, there are important results to explain some of the phenomena that is happening in the organizational environment, specifically in the company DICOLAIC S.A. in the city of Latacunga. In case of work stress, DIOLAIC S.A. has a low level of stress (60 pts.); on the other hand, in it’s individual evaluation, the area that presents an intermediate stress index is the Technological area (12 pts.). For the work climate evaluation, similar results were obtained, on average the organization is within the average standards of work climate (116, 31 pts.) being one of its areas to pay attention to the Job Stability (10,43 pts.) representing an indicator of low average work climate. In addition, through a correlational analysis between the two variables studied, it can be determined that the relationship between them is very weak, i.e. their relationship is very weak, with little influence of one variable on the other.

Marketing digital y el posicionamiento de la MYPE del sector gastronómico Mifruty, Lima Norte, 2021

The objective of this research work was to investigate how digital marketing is related to the positioning of the Mifruty Juicery, considering the good use of the strategies offered by marketing as well as the platforms offered to promote a company, such as social networks or the website, which have taken more strength these last 2 years due to the global crisis and which are fundamental factors for a company to position itself.
The research is a non-experimental, correlational-cross-sectional design, the target population are the customers of the toy store Mifruty located in northern Lima and consists of a sample of 100 potential customers. Data collection was through an online questionnaire, which was carried out at the same point of sale of the toy store. The instrument consisted of 23 items and was validated by a specialist in the field.
With respect to the reliability of the instrument constructed for the variables used, they were analyzed and approved by means of Cronbach's Alpha system, resulting in a high reliability, which allowed us to collect data for the research study to be conducted in the Mifruty Juicery.
Similarly, according to statistical tests, 9 % of respondents consider that Mifruty Juicery regularly employs digital marketing, being the social networks and the company's website poorly managed due to its few and not so striking contents, so they fail to meet the expectations of its customers. Likewise, 17 % of the respondents consider a regular positioning in the market, so by implementing the right marketing strategies the positioning would rise.

Sociodemographic Factors, Work Motivation, Emotional Intelligence, Quality of Work Life, and Their Association with Work Performance in Peruvian Health Workers

Introduction: This study addresses the influence of Emotional Intelligence (EI), work motivation, and quality of work life on the performance of health workers in Peru. Considering the relevance of these variables in clinical contexts, especially during stressful situations like the COVID-19 pandemic. Objective: The aim was to determine how these sociodemographic and psychosocial factors are associated with work performance in this sector.
Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional design was adopted, using a random sample of health workers from a significant hospital, with a minimum calculated sample size of 110 professionals. The tools used included the Quality of Life Scale, the Emotional Intelligence Scale, the Work Motivation Scale, and the Individual Work Performance Questionnaire.
Results: The results showed higher participation of health workers between the ages of 28 and 37. A significant correlation was found between Emotional Intelligence (EI) and work performance (r = 0,398, p < 0,01), as well as between quality of work life and work performance (r = 0,484, p < 0,01). However, work motivation did not show a significant correlation with performance (r = 0,099, p > 0,05). Additionally, the variables of being female and working in the care area were significantly related to better work performance.
Conclusion: The study concludes that work performance in the health sector is positively influenced by Emotional Intelligence and quality of work life. These findings highlight the importance of emotional support, cooperation, and communication in health environments, as well as recognition through non-monetary incentives. This comprehensive approach may be key to improving productivity and the quality of patient care in health facilities.

Family guidance to promote the motivation of schoolchildren towards learning

The motivation towards learning of schoolchildren is a concern of society in general and of families in particular. The orientation is an ideal resource to help families reconsider goals and projects for their members in order to develop initial interests and motivations for learning that will support new institutionalized learning. It is notorious in primary schools on the outskirts of the city of Holguín in Cuba, to find students demotivated by the acquisition of the learning that the school offers them, by not perceiving satisfaction of their felt needs, since in the homes there are insufficiencies in the orientation towards the contents that must be learned according to the age period through which they transit. In the E/P Eradio Domínguez Ocampo it was possible to verify, through the application of research methods and techniques (interviews, surveys, observation and documentary review) in the 2nd grade group, demotivation for learning of 12 students and their families. This is verified in the non-attendance to school, the behavioral manifestations and in the learning results. These reasons led to the design of a family orientation strategy, through its implementation changes were observed in families and schoolchildren, corroborating the information through focused testimony.

Chromosomal aberrations in patients with suspected Prader Willi syndrome

Introduction: Prader-Willi syndrome, caused by the absence of expression of the paternal 15q11-13 region, is the first imprinting defect disorder described in humans. With an incidence of 1 in 10000-15000, its clinical phenotype characterized by hypotonia, obesity and hypogonadism overlaps with a group of genetically heterogeneous syndromes defined as Prader Willi-like syndrome or Prader Willi like. In this group, deletion 1p36, deletion 2p, deletion 6q, among others, are reported.

Objective: to identify chromosomal aberrations in the conventional karyotype of patients with suspected Prader Willi syndrome.

Methods: we analyzed the results of conventional karyotyping in lymphocytes, FISH molecular studies and methylation-based polymerase chain reaction of 112 patients referred during the period 2010-2019 for suspected Prader Willi syndrome. Results: Prader Willi syndrome was confirmed in 45,5 % of the patients. Chromosomal aberrations outside the 15q11.13 region were found in 5,3 % of cases including: chromosome 22 ring, trisomy 21 mosaic, 6p admixture, reverse sex and chromosome 21 inversion.

Conclusions: In patients with Prader Willi phenotype, clinical suspicion is often not confirmed by molecular studies. Conventional karyotyping may reveal Prader Willi-like syndrome due to aberrations at sites involved in neuroendocrine control outside the 15q11.13 region. In these cases chromosomal diagnosis is essential for more effective prevention strategies as part of genetic counseling for patients and families.

Analyzing the integration of emotional, cognitive and physiological processing in preschool

Introduction: In recent decades, great importance has been given to the joint study of emotional, cognitive, and physiological processes. Emotions play an important role in allowing the regulation and adaptation of people to the environment, which is key to mental and physical health and well-being. However, little research analyzes the integration of these processes in preschoolers. The present study analyzes the emotional, cognitive, and physiological processing of 4- and 5-year-old girls and boys.
Methods: Forty-two 4- and 5-year-old children participated and were administered a Stroop-type task under a neutral or positive condition to analyze the effect of emotional valence on performance and heart rate.
Results: An increase in heart rate was found during the Stroop-like task in both conditions. A decrease in heart rate was also observed in the positive condition of the task in the girl group and the 5-year-old group. Finally, heart rate variability correlated inversely with reaction time in the neutral condition.
Discussion: The results show that cognitive demand increases heart rate beyond task valence and that positive valence decreases heart rate as a function of age and gender. These findings emphasize integrating individual characteristics when studying emotional, cognitive, and physiological processing during development and considering biopsychosocial health.

Prenatal diagnosis of congenital adrenal hyperplasia: a case report

Introduction: Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) includes a group of autosomal recessive disorders affecting cortisol biosynthesis, where affected males do not have sexual ambiguity.
Aim: To describe the diagnostic sequence of prenatal diagnosis of congenital adrenal hyperplasia in a male fetus with ambiguous genitalia.
Case report: 26-year-old primiparous pregnant woman, who at the end of the second trimester during ultrasound study describes fetal growth restriction, alterations at the level of the central nervous system and genitalia with empty scrotal pouches and genital peduncle parallel to the spine, suspecting a female fetus with ambiguous genitalia. Molecular study of congenital adrenal hyperplasia by amniocentesis and molecular diagnosis of sex is indicated.
Discussion: The molecular study allowed the prenatal diagnosis of the disease in a male fetus, the latter condition being an unexpected finding given the appearance of ambiguous genitalia in the ultrasound that suggested a female fetus.
Conclusions: The diagnostic suspicion of congenital adrenal hyperplasia in the presence of undifferentiated genitalia is important in the interest of early diagnosis for adequate genetic counseling and management of the disease.

Problems of consumption and abuse of addictions and their impact on education: the case of marijuana, myth or reality?

The growing consumption of recreational marijuana, particularly among young people, has significantly increased during the period of mandatory isolation in the recent pandemic. This phenomenon raises alarming concerns about a public health issue, not only in terms of individual consumption but also collectively. It is important to emphasize marijuana consumption, as its lack of knowledge is influenced by a growing consumer culture, making it the largest global increase in the consumption of illegal substances.
According to a report by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, approximately 192 million people between the ages of 15 and 64 use cannabis recreationally worldwide, based on 2018 data. This figure shows a low perception of risk regarding marijuana use, as currently 23% of teenagers do not consider it harmful to health, compared to 10% ten years ago. This misconception has contributed to its increased acceptance in various sectors of society, especially among young people of school age, where its prevalence is alarmingly high. Additionally, there are many myths and beliefs about the effects of marijuana that lack solid scientific evidence. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct a scientific critique to improve the quality of life for our young people.
The objective of this study is to demonstrate scientific certainties regarding the negative effects of THC consumption, the main psychoactive component of marijuana. To achieve this, a bibliographic analysis of scientific documents based on evidence-based medicine will be carried out. It is important to highlight the significance of these studies in the mentioned age groups. As stated by Dr. Nora Volkow, Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), "these studies will help us understand the effects of substance use, as well as environmental, social, genetic, and other biological factors on the developing adolescent brain" (Study on Adolescent Brain Development, April 15, 2020). The participants are currently in a vulnerable stage of their lives, either in middle school or just starting high school, which is a critical time to learn more about what improves or alters the life trajectory of a young person. The data used in this study will be available through the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Data Archive, which researchers can access by obtaining a free account on the NIMH Data Archive.

Introduction: the word emotion comes from the Latin emovere, relating it to movement; in the Spanish etymology of Corominas the term mover includes the entry emoción, as associated to conmover, motivo (as related to movement) and motivar, from the Latin motoris or "that moves".

Objective: in our long-standing work with people with Parkinson's disease, we have been developing this emotion-movement relationship from an inter(trans)disciplinary perspective, understanding body movement as an anthropological problem that requires a relational, deep and situated view.

Method: argumentation and theoretical analysis and discussion. The methodological approach is based on mixed method research with elements of autoethnography and participant observation, investigating the problem from within. We appeal to evidence from behavioral and social neuroscience, ecological understanding from health sciences, relational perspective from cognitive anthropology and learning perspective from educational neuroscience.

Results: A key concept is paradoxical kinesia, a behavioral phenomenon where the individual relates to his environment through the synchronization or engagement of the perceptual-motor system with the action qualities of the environment or affordances. What our research suggests is that among the affordances that the environment can offer, social affordances can be highlighted, giving sense to the participation of motivation in the improvement of the movement of people affected with Parkinson's disease.

Conclusions: we suggest that social affordances are as much a component of movement as are the bodily elements and physical-biochemical mechanisms that sustain it.

Unusual gain in 9qh and its possible influence on reproductive disorders. A case report

Reproductive disorders are of heterogeneous cause. Balanced chromosomal aberrations and chromosomal polymorphisms in carrier individuals are described among the most reported genetic causes. The aim of this work was to describe the unusual finding of a gain in the heterochromatic region of chromosome 9, coupled with two bands of apparent euchromatin in this region in a man with a history of several years of infertility. This is a 36-year-old male patient, who has been unable to procreate for 10 years, presenting oligoasthenospermia without other alterations in his clinical study. Through the conventional chromosomal study in peripheral blood, a karyotype with 46,XY, 9qh++ was obtained. The increased heterochromatic region found on one of her chromosome 9 is interpreted as an apparent duplication, with two bands of apparent euchromatin inserted into it. The unusual variation observed in this patient's chromosome 9 suggests that it is the cause of the reproductive disorder he presents with.

Complex chromosomal rearrangements involved in male infertility

Complex chromosomal rearrangements (CCRs) are aberrations involving three or more chromosomes or three or more breakpoints, are extremely rare and approximately more than half are associated with affected phenotypes. Diagnosis is usually made by applying methods such as molecular karyotyping (aCGH) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). For the cytogenetic analysis we used peripheral blood lymphocyte culture stimulated with phytohemagglutinin using conventional cytogenetic methods adapted to the conditions of the Cytogenetics Laboratory of the National Center of Medical Genetics. Fifteen metaphases per patient were analyzed with a resolution of 450 bands per haploid set. The method of classification of the RCCs created by Kausch and collaborators was used. The patients studied came from the Assisted Reproduction Clinic of the Ramón González Coro Hospital where they presented reproductive disorders. They were evaluated in an interdisciplinary consultation and referred to the cytogenetics laboratory for analysis of their chromosomal complement. In the analysis and genetic counseling of these three patients carrying RCC, all the aspects mentioned above should be taken into consideration, with the obvious limitation in our environment of not having molecular tests available for the detection of some type of cryptic rearrangement or some specific mutation in a certain gene. However, with the use of conventional cytogenetic methods, personalized genetic counseling can be established for each RCC carrier, taking into account the chromosomes involved, the breakpoint, the size of the translocated segment and the possible genes involved in the breakpoint.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging, two years of its use in the National Prenatal Reference Consultation for the confirmation of congenital defects

Introduction: Although ultrasonography (US) is still the modality of choice in the evaluation of disorders related to pregnancy and the fetus, it has certain limitations. For this reason, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a noninvasive study method, complementary to US, to detect fetal anomalies, allowing a better approach to prognosis and perinatal management.
Objective: To evaluate the usefulness of fetal MRI in the diagnosis of congenital defects in pregnant women attended at the National Prenatal Referral Clinic (CRNP).
Methods: an observational, analytical, longitudinal and prospective study was performed using all cases attended at the CRNP for confirmation of congenital defects (CD), from May 2020 to May 2022, in which it was necessary to complement the ultrasonographic findings with fetal MRI, either due to fetal or maternal conditions that limited the scope of conventional ultrasonography images.
Results: 66 fetal MRI were performed, the most frequent reason for indication was the suspicion of Central Nervous System defects (47%), followed by non-specific abdominal tumors (14%), Respiratory System and SOMA (11%) each and Renal and Digestive System with 8 and 6% respectively. In 16 of the cases the ultrasonographic finding was confirmed without other elements of interest, in 44 cases findings were reported that strongly modified the genetic counseling offered to the families, and in 6 cases the examination was not useful.
Conclusions: MRI is the complement to prenatal ultrasonography that irrefutably strengthens the personalized nature of the genetic counseling offered to parents when a congenital defect is suspected.

Relationship of risk factors for chromosomal alterations with fetal cytogenetic outcome in pregnant women

Introduction: Chromosomal alterations are an important cause of fetal disease and mortality.
Objective: To identify the risk factors of chromosomal alterations associated with fetal cytogenetic results in pregnant women in Mayabeque province.
Methods: An observational, analytical, cross-sectional, and retrospective epidemiological case-control study was conducted in a 1:2 ratio, at a relational research level, in pregnant women who underwent prenatal cytogenetic diagnosis in Mayabeque from 2011-2022. The sample comprised 94 cases with positive cytogenetic prenatal diagnoses and 188 negative controls.
Results: In the control group, advanced maternal age predominated as in the cases (p=0.055; OR=0.594). Positive ultrasound findings predominated in cases over controls (p<0.001 and OR=3.4). Elevated nuchal translucency was more frequent in cases than in controls (p<0.001; OR=20.0). Early fetal growth restriction (p<0.001), long bone shortening (p=0.004), and intestinal hyperechogenicity grade III (p=0.006) were present only in cases. The association of advanced maternal age with second-trimester markers obtained statistically significant results (p=0.017; OR=10.5).
Conclusions: Advanced maternal age constitutes the main indication for amniocentesis for cytogenetic prenatal diagnosis in Mayabeque province; however, it is not a sufficient criterion to offer the pregnant woman an invasive procedure. The association of the chronological age of the pregnant woman with ultrasound findings in the first and second trimesters was a more accurate combination to establish the risk of chromosomal alterations in the fetus.

Chromosome 22 ring in patient with neurodevelopmental disorder

Introduction: Ring chromosomes are a rare type of structural anomaly with variable size and gene content and can originate from any chromosome. According to the international literature, the clinical features associated with ring chromosome 22 will depend on the extent of the 22q terminal deletion.
Objective: To describe the relationship between phenotype and karyotype of a patient with ring chromosome 22.
Case report: A cytogenetic study was performed in the Cytogenetic Laboratory of the National Center of Medical Genetics in a female patient referred for suspicion of possible chromosomal aberration, with the following indications: Autism Spectrum Disorder, intellectual disability, facial dysmorphias. High Resolution Technique for the culture of lymphocytes without exogenous serum and GTG bands was used for karyotyping. Karyotyping revealed an apparent chromosome 22 ring, whose formula is 46, XX, r (22) (p11.2; q13.2) in 10 metaphases with a resolution of 450 bands. The karyotype of the parents is normal 46, XX and 46, XY.
Conclusions: The cytogenetic study allowed establishing the possible association between autism spectrum disorders and the ring of 22 due to loss of genes such as SHANK3 (located on 22q13), which is a candidate for mutations in 1 to 2% of these patients.

Learning to think in light of neuroscience and my teaching competence

La neurociencia constituye un nuevo paradigma epistemológico que permite analizar y explicar el comportamiento humano inteligente. Las modernas teorías neurocientíficas parecen demostrar que es en el cerebro donde se ordena el cuerpo que actúa. Controla el cuerpo, ordena sus resultados, almacena la información, influye emocionalmente, experimenta y se construye con el exterior. Todas estas funciones tienen de referencia el sistema motor y el control del movimiento. Los conocimientos de la Neurociencia deben de ser tenidos en cuenta en la educación. La actividad realizada a través del cuerpo es clave en la configuración neuronal. Mediante las vivencias que conforman la experiencia, se configura el cerebro. Tras el análisis de las competencias de las que debe disponer el docente, se propone un plan de trabajo para su formación, que ha sido experimentado durante años. A lo largo de nuestra experiencia, tanto con alumnos en edad escolar, o en la formación de docentes, hemos podido comprobar como pequeñas situaciones vivenciadas, a veces accidentales, tomaban una importante relevancia, generando, incluso, cambios sustanciales en la persona. Se aprende lo que se vive. La experiencia que presentamos ha sido realizada en formato de numerosos cursos para la formación de profesorado. Pretendemos el desarrollo de competencias docentes de tal forma que; el docente cuando se encuentre practicando su acción educativa tenga relación con la propia manera de pensar, con lo que quiere y con su propio estilo de interactuar.

Current Trends in the Treatment of Heart Failure in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus and Ejection Fraction: An Analysis of the Relationship between SGLT2 and Heart Failure

Introduction: the use of glyflozines, a group of drugs, in the treatment of heart failure, diabetes mellitus and chronic kidney disease is analyzed. To highlight the pathophysiological mechanisms shared between these diseases and the increased risk of cardiovascular events in patients with these conditions. Glyflozines have shown benefits in all three diseases mentioned, surprising researchers for their cardiovascular effects. The article mentions the association between type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) and heart failure, as well as the increased risk of cardiovascular disease in patients with DM2. Objectives: to analyze the two isoforms of sodium-glucose transporters (SGLT1 and SGLT2) and the role of SGLT2 inhibitors in promoting osmotic diuresis and glucose excretion, in relation to treatment for heart failure, diabetes mellitus and chronic kidney disease.
Methods: a Systematic Review of the literature was performed, which will be governed according to PRISMA guidelines. The units of analysis will be abstracts and full text of articles with randomized clinical trial design or prospective or retrospective cohort, published in Scopus, Web of Science and Pubmed, without temporal restriction.
Results: the results of this review strongly support the inclusion of T2GLS in the management strategies of heart failure in patients with diabetes mellitus. Furthermore, they suggest that these drugs can have a positive clinical impact in patients with different profiles, making them a versatile option. However, further research is needed to deepen the mechanisms of action and to explore their efficacy in patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction, as well as in other subgroups of clinical interest. The incorporation of SGLT2 into current and future clinical practice may represent a significant advance in the treatment of heart failure and improve the quality of life of affected patients. Future research should focus on addressing outstanding questions and areas of uncertainty to better guide clinical decision making and improve outcomes for patients with heart failure and diabetes mellitus.

The Ethical Crossroads of Personal Data Collection

En la actualidad, experimentamos una revolución tecnológica sin precedentes, donde la convergencia de la inteligencia artificial, las tecnologías de la información y comunicación “TIC”, la analítica de grandes conjuntos de datos, la infraestructura en la nube, el aprendizaje automático y la Internet de las cosas “IoT” redefine fundamentalmente la interacción con la información, los servicios y la toma de decisiones. La transparencia se erige como un principio fundamental, exigiendo autenticidad, valor genuino e integridad por parte de marcas y empresas.
Asistimos a un cambio paradigmático en la relación entre las personas y la tecnología, desde la inteligencia artificial hasta la Internet de las cosas IoT, reconfigurando la manera en que vivimos, trabajamos y nos comunicamos. La sociedad se sumerge en una completa transformación digital, remodelando sectores enteros y dando forma a una nueva economía digital.
La inteligencia artificial y las TIC construyen una sociedad interconectada, alterando la dinámica social, la participación ciudadana y la forma en que consumimos información. Esta rápida introducción de tecnologías desafía estructuras tradicionales, exigiendo adaptabilidad tanto a nivel individual como organizacional.
En 2024, la ética en el manejo de datos se convierte en un pilar crucial para cultivar la confianza. A medida que la privacidad, la equidad en el acceso a la tecnología y la seguridad de los datos se vuelven temas candentes, la atención se centra en la implementación de principios éticos como equidad, confidencialidad, claridad y responsabilidad.
El enfoque en la adaptación personalizada, junto con la privacidad y seguridad de los datos, destaca como una prioridad en 2024. Aunque se busca la personalización, la transparencia en la adquisición y uso de datos se vuelve imperativa para las empresas. El año se proclama como “el año de los datos”, donde la forma en que las marcas utilicen sus datos marcará la diferencia entre prosperar y perecer.
En términos de cifras y datos generales, se espera que la cantidad de información producida y consumida mundialmente se duplique para 2025, alcanzando los 97 zettabytes. La relevancia estratégica de los datos se destaca, con el 87 % de los anunciantes considerando los datos como su activo más infrautilizado.
El porcentaje de datos valiosos con potencial de análisis ha crecido del 22 % al 37 % entre 2012 y 2020, consolidando la percepción de que los datos son la nueva mina de oro en el ámbito de los negocios digitales. El mercado de grandes conjuntos de datos está valuado actualmente en 138,9 mil millones de dólares y sigue en aumento.
La Industria 4,0 depende cada vez más de la adopción de tecnologías de Big Data e inteligencia artificial (IA). Actualmente, un 48,5 % de las organizaciones utilizan los datos como motor para impulsar la innovación.
En 2024, se destaca la necesidad de que los datos y la IA vayan de la mano para aprovechar su poder. Sin embargo, la mayoría de las estructuras organizativas aún enfrentan desafíos para abordar eficazmente este cambio de paradigma. Se prevé que la inteligencia artificial y los algoritmos desempeñen un papel significativo en determinar elecciones de compra, preferencias políticas, elecciones de pareja, planificación familiar, gestión de la salud y recomendaciones médicas en un futuro próximo. Las tendencias para 2024 incluyen la intensificación del uso de estructuras de datos limpias, la implementación efectiva de estas y un aumento en soluciones “caja negra” de IA. Esto se refiere a sistemas de IA y modelos de aprendizaje automático que funcionan de manera oculta al entendimiento humano, impulsados por complejos modelos matemáticos y conjuntos de datos de alta dimensión. Grandes empresas tecnológicas están acelerando su apoyo al marketing impulsado por la IA.

Deforestation and its degrading effect on the environment

Nature, home to animal and plant species, is suffering the rigors of man's equivocal actions, and species are gradually becoming extinct, water sources disappear, soils are destroyed, the air is rarefied, forests are devastated, leading the planet to a state of agony, where if this situation is not reversed, all forms of life on Earth will succumb. In fact, such a panorama must lead to reflection in order to generate mechanisms for its approach, since the planet demands it, given the different consequences that arise and that deserve immediate attention. Among the problems that affect the environment, there is deforestation, a fact that involves removing a significant number of trees from a geographical space, which triggers a series of adverse effects on the environment.

The social construction of reality

In different times the social construction has been different based on their models and has been updated with different thoughts and way of seeing things, in the seventies the social construction had generated an impact to sociology, giving rise to rumors and provocative games leaving in prejudice what will say of the other parties prejudging and limiting on the same, This is analyzed by the text "Ethnomethodology", however, it should be noted that in the different authors there is a different thinking with respect to sociology, society and culture based on the way of thinking of man, the actions that can be performed, norms and behaviors in which the actions will be reflected in the social, daily and cultural order. This article reviews essential aspects of the social construction of reality.

Quality with underlying epistemological criteria

Introduction: the fact that a term is freely used and decoded according to the nature in which it is intended to be applied or towards the semiotic sense that the reader assigns to it implies a review of the various ways in which it is interpreted and to the origin of the concept of quality, and it is often observed that the concept of quality is given a partial and not integral content. The objective of the work is directed to the theoretical description of quality in health, detailing concepts, characteristics and application.
Methods: qualitative, narrative and exploratory study based on literature review.
Development: quality of care is the set of technical-scientific, material and human characteristics that the health care provided to beneficiaries must have, in order to achieve the possible effects that will result in the greatest number of healthy years of life and a cost that is socially and economically viable for the system and its members. Its characteristics are timeliness, agility, accessibility, continuity, sufficiency, safety, comprehensiveness and integrity, logical-scientific rationality, cost-effectiveness, efficiency, humanity, information, transparency, consent and degree of user satisfaction; in a technical and applied sense, several models have been used in quality evaluation, among which the pioneer Donabedian stands out, who developed a model based on three areas: structure, process and results; Galán developed another model focused on the evaluation of the attributes of quality: care, demand, supply, process, results and impact.
Conclusions: quality in Health is made up of a set of values, principles, policies and action strategies aimed at promoting change and improvement activities in the organization, in order to obtain the greatest satisfaction of the staff and the patient; and it must be defined, planned, programmed, its real cost determined, evaluated and, fundamentally, led by the management teams.

The Evolution of Treatments for Acute Ischemic Stroke and Correlated Medical Knowledge: A Historical Analysis

This retrospective article examines the evolution of treatments for Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS) over three decades. From initial attempts in the 1970s to the introduction of recombinant Tissue Plasminogen Activator (r-tPA) in 1995, significant progress is highlighted. Mechanical thrombectomy, using devices such as Merci Retriever and Solitaire®, provides alternatives for patients unsuitable for chemical thrombolysis. The comparison between thrombolysis and thrombectomy, along with their combined use, underscores the need for individualized assessments.
Despite challenges, advances in imaging technology extend therapeutic windows. The introduction of advanced equipment and artificial intelligence-assisted analysis tools enhances precise detection of penumbra areas. While challenges persist, such as a lack of awareness among some physicians, research and clinical application offer an optimistic outlook. Personalization of therapies, expansion of therapeutic windows, and integration of technology promise to improve outcomes and quality of life. In this landscape, a promising future is envisioned where innovation and personalization will transform AIS care.

The Wyclif case in late medieval England: an example of the interaction between philosophy, politics, social criticism and language

At the end of the 14th century, England came to face stages of fiscal suffocation due to the already long Hundred Years' War with France (dde. 1337); is witness to the violent peasant-urban uprising of 1381 and its even more violent repression, and is moved by Enrique Bolingbroke's coup against Richard II, within the framework of a dialectic between authority and negotiation between crown and nobility, typical of of the pre-absolutist stage of the European national states. Within this context, a priest and preacher who ranks among the leading philosophers and theologians of the second half of the century at Oxford, Europe's second leading academic world, John Wyclif (c. 1330-1284), infuses with his fiery preaching a spirit of criticism and reform that marks the social pulse, religiosity, literature and language of subsequent decades. This is what is known as the Lollard movement, which the ecclesiastical establishment of the following decades configured as a heresy that was the object of persecution until almost the middle of the 15th century. Among its main emergents is the so-called Wyclifite Bible (c. 1390-1420), an anonymous corpus of Middle English texts decisive for the establishment and maturation of the modern English language. We are before a rare case of a heresy of university origin; a complex phenomenon, impossible to approach, except through various disciplines: the histories of philosophy, theology and spirituality; the social, economic history and of the national states; the history of language and literature; that of texts, their fixation and transmission. At stake is the relationship between the preachers or "poor priests", the uprising and its program, the program of Wyclif himself, the university students and power (in its double ecclesiastical and secular facet, typically medieval).

Ligation-dependent multiplex probe amplification for rapid diagnosis of aneuploidy. Systematic review

Purpose of the review: In Cuba, an alternative is currently available in those cases where karyotyping is not possible or is inconclusive, in such cases the main aneuploidies are discarded using fluorescence in situ hybridization. Its use is very expensive and involves an intense workload. Among the molecular studies that have gained greater repercussion in the world scientific literature as a means for the determination of the number of copies of a genomic segment is the ligation-dependent multiplex amplification of probes.
Aim: To evaluate multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification as a feasible technique for use in the determination of major aneuploidies by searching the scientific literature.
Search method: Pubmed/Medline and Google Scholar were used. The following search strategy was used: "(MLPA OR multiplex OR ligation-dependent) AND (aneuploidy OR trisomy) AND amniotic". Only full-text articles were selected; mainly those reflecting their use in prenatal diagnosis using amniotic fluid as a sample.
Conclusions: The use of APLM could mean obtaining results in less time, with lower costs per case and less workload, among other advantages. However, specialists consider that more studies should be carried out before using it as the only technique for the identification of aneuploidy.

Advances in the use of Ruxolitinib in the treatment of vitiligo disease

Introduction: Vitiligo is an acquired autoimmune hypomelanosis, associated with a genetic component, whose expression is usually triggered by environmental factors. Its typical symptoms are hypopigmented or apigmented macules with a progressive behavior, which makes it a relatively easy pathology to diagnose. First-generation JAK inhibitors, such as ruxolitinib, baricitinib, delgotinib and tofacitinib, are less selective and inhibit different JAKs. Therefore, JAKi could expand treatment options for various inflammatory skin diseases. By reducing the effect of all cytokines that are activated by the corresponding JAK/STAT pathway, they may be more effective than classical biologics that target a single cytokine. Objectives: to describe the scientific evidence on the efficacy and safety of advances in the use of Ruxolitinib in the treatment of vitiligo disease compared to other conventional treatments or placebo, in terms of skin repigmentation, symptom improvement and occurrence of adverse events.

Material and methods: a search was performed in Pubmed, Scopus, Web of Science from January 2000 to October 2022. Selecting abstracts of cohort and case-control studies evaluating the use of Ruxolitinib in the treatment of vitiligo disease in comparison with other conventional treatments or placebo, in terms of skin repigmentation, symptom improvement and occurrence of adverse events.

Results: the results of this systematic review support the efficacy of ruxolitinib cream in the treatment of vitiligo, with significant improvements in repigmentation observed in different patient subgroups. Despite some limitations, these findings are encouraging and suggest that ruxolitinib cream may be an effective and safe treatment option for vitiligo, especially in the context of facial repigmentation. However, more research is needed to confirm these results and to better understand the mechanisms involved in this treatment. This encourages further research in this area and provides hope for patients struggling with vitiligo.

Emergency Delirium Prevention with Dexmedetomidine in Pediatrics

Introduction: Prevention of emergency delirium with dexmedetomidine in pediatric patients is a topic of growing interest in medical practice and clinical research. Emergency delirium, also known as pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) delirium syndrome, is a severe neuropsychiatric disorder affecting critically ill children and adolescents. Objectives: To comprehensively analyze the available scientific literature in order to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of dexmedetomidine as a pharmacological agent in the prevention of emergency delirium in pediatric patients. Material and methods: A Systematic Review of the literature will be carried out in accordance with PRISMA guidelines. The units of analysis will be the abstracts and full text of papers with randomized clinical trial design or prospective or retrospective cohort, published in Scopus, Web of Science and Pubmed, without temporal restriction. Results: The systematic review indicates that dexmedetomidine shows promise in reducing the incidence of postoperative delirium, emergence delirium, and pain in various surgical populations. These findings have significant clinical implications, especially for elderly patients and children undergoing specific procedures. The safety profile of dexmedetomidine was generally acceptable, with no major adverse events reported. In conclusion, while the systematic review suggests that dexmedetomidine may offer benefits in preventing postoperative delirium and improving perioperative outcomes, further research is needed to establish the optimal dose, refine assessment methods, and explore its long-term effects. Dexmedetomidine promises to be a valuable tool in pediatric and geriatric surgical settings, with the potential to improve patient care and recovery.

Effect of sugarcane bagasse ash on the mechanical properties of pervious concrete

Sugarcane bagasse ash (CBCA) is a byproduct of the sugar industry that is considered as a pozzolanic material due to its high content of silica and aluminum. The study evaluates the effect of CBCA on the mechanical properties of permeable concrete. Tests were conducted on the concrete's compressive strength using 2 %, 4 %, and 6 % percentages of CBCA. The results showed that adding 2 % CBCA achieved a compressive strength of 234,61 Kg/cm2, higher than the standard sample which achieved 218,37 Kg/cm2. Adding 4 % and 6 % CBCA resulted in compressive strengths of 214,88 Kg/cm2 and 206,91 Kg/cm2, respectively. It was determined that the higher the incorporation of CBCA, the lower the compressive strength of the concrete, likely due to the low percentage of Sodium (Na) in the chemical composition of CBCA, which starts to affect the mechanical properties of the permeable concrete from day 21 of curing. Finally, it is demonstrated that CBCA is a promising additive, but further studies are suggested to evaluate its long-term effects and economic viability in large-scale concrete production.

Introduction: the profound social and family changes experienced in recent decades have also played a decisive role in the rise of depression, especially changes in family models, competition as the axis of life (which is more important than other dimensions of existence) and the availability of mass media, which promote personal distancing.
Objectives: to describe the scientific evidence on the impact of smartphone use on childhood depression from a pediatric perspective and what are the underlying factors that influence this relationship.
Methods: a search was conducted in Pubmed, Scopus, Web of Science from January 2000 to October 2023.
Results: this systematic review included several studies that evaluated different mental health interventions in various populations. Overall, we found that interventions based on smartphones, online cognitive behavioral therapy, and telemedicine had a positive impact on mental health. For example, postnatal mothers who received smartphone interventions experienced a significant reduction in depression. In addition, online therapy was shown to alleviate parental anxiety and depression and improve their quality of life. However, some studies had limitations, such as small samples or lack of effect on certain outcomes. More research would be needed to fully understand the scope and efficacy of these digital interventions.
Conclusion: this review highlights the promising efficacy of smartphone-based interventions to improve mental health in different populations. Despite limitations and challenges, the use of mobile technology in mental health care is an evolving area that could offer significant benefits in the future, transforming the way we approach and treat childhood mental health disorders.

Chronic diarrhea in a pediatric patient with HIV

Despite advances in antiretroviral therapy (ART), diarrhea remains a common problem with HIV infection and contributes to reduced quality of life and survival in HIV-infected patientes. Diarrhea is estimated to occur in approximately 90 % of HIV/AIDS patients in developing countries and between 30 % and 60 % in developed countries. Opportunistic pathogens that cause diarrhea in HIV-infected persons include protozoa, fungi, viroses, and bacteria. Several species of protozoa belonging to Cryptosporidium, Microsporidia and Isospora, are among the most common causative pathogens responsible for significant morbility and mortality in HIV patients. The case of a pediatric patient with chronic diarrhea with HIV stage C3 in irregular treatment with antiretrovirals Abacavir, Lamivudine, Lopinavir/Ritonavir admitted to the Institute of Tropical Medicine in which Isospora belli was isolated in coproparasitological for which she received treatment is presented below with Trimetropim-Sulfamethoxazole in addition to Griseofulvin for tinea capitis and Ivermectin and Permethrin 5 % lotion for scabies. Diarrhea can cause significant morbility in HIV-positive patients and can be due to a multitude of etiologies, from infectious pathogens to malignancy to drugs. Diarrhea is also an independent predictor of reduced quality of life and, in the case of advanced HIV disease, increased mortality.

Self-injury and viral challenges among adolescents

The use of the internet to search for information or share images about self-harm is an emerging risk among young people. Additionally, viral challenges involving engaging in physical self-harm and posting it on the internet are becoming increasingly prevalent. This conference analyzed the prevalence of online self-harm and viral challenges, as well as differences by gender and age. The relationship between online self-harm and intrapersonal factors (depression and anxiety) and interpersonal factors (family cohesion, social resources) were also examined. A sample of 1,877 adolescents (946 females) between the ages of 12 and 17 (mean age = 13.41, SD = 1.255) who completed self-report measures were evaluated. According to the results obtained, it was presented that 11% of adolescents had engaged in some form of online self-harm. Prevalence was significantly higher among females and adolescents over the age of is Depression and anxiety increased the risk of online self-harm, while family cohesion was a protective factor against it. In summary, the presentation emphasized that the use of the internet to share or seek information about self-harm is a problem that involves a significant proportion of adolescents. Online risk prevention programs should include emotional regulation, coping, and resilience skills to reduce the potential negative consequences of these behaviors.

"See, hear and feel": experience new ways to intertwine the struggles in the Brazilian Eastern Amazon

In the 1980s in the middle of the Brazilian Oriental Amazonia, the big Carajás program has been installed. Located between the states of Maranhão and Paraá was raised to guarantee the infrastructural conditions of mineral exploration of Cerro de Carajás, located in the state of Parar. Extinct decades later, his dynamics continued to operate until the current days. The insertion of this region in the capitalist dynamics caused a series of violations and violence to the people who live there: originating, quilombolas, riverside, urban, among others. In 2014, the GEDMMA Studies Group and the Organization of Human Rights Justiça Trilhos began a process of political formation with young people from the communities affected by these dynamics. In this talk I try to share the experience of intertwining struggles that nasció of the process with the young women. Beyond the place of political formation, from my own experience in this process, I try to reflect on the changes arising from the meeting of knowledge, subjectivities, looks among young people from different social groups that are in the communities and in the academy.

Interdiscipline exercises applied to the study of urban privatization and public space in the northern corridor of the R.M.B.A

In the Urban History Research Team led by Celia Guevara we study the riparian public space of the Northern Corridor, R.M.B.A. We identify a link between urban opening and the existence of organizations in defense of public space, which led to formulating a hypothesis about the relationship between the lack of interaction between social classes and the progress of the privatization of space. Aim. Describe exercises to apply interdisciplinary methods for the study of interaction between social classes and the privatization of public space. Addressing the city as a complex system. We ask ourselves: Is the defense of public space possible when there are walls that prevent interaction between social classes? To work interdisciplinary, we investigate: what can each discipline contribute to the study of the hypothesis in its different dimensions/aspects? Based on the interpretation of the hypothesis from each discipline or in pairs, reflection on methodological strategies and discussions after field work. Elaborating coincidences and differences between disciplinary approaches. Conclusions. In a multidiscipline framework the conclusion refers to different approaches that lead to a common result.

  • Urbanism The conclusion refers to the loss of communication of the inhabitants with each other which leads to privatization.
  • Political science we would talk about different strategies to defend this space and the reaction of the inhabitants in the face of those losses.
  • Anthropology We would study the different behaviors determined by the existence of barriers and walls.
  • Urban history would allege as proof the Hispanic planning of the 16th century that privileged public space.
  • Sociology are marking a tendency to confinement and homogeneity in endo-group interactions.

Development and territory branding: loyalty of the worldview of cities to create cultural exchange and recognition of identity

The general objective of the research is to analyze the development and territory brand: fidelization of the worldview of cities to create cultural exchange and recognition of identity. In this sense, the historical journey of Local Development is described from the economic-dominant thought and its relationship with Marketing, from a critical, inductive-descriptive methodology. One of the outstanding features of the late 20th century is the emergence of the spatial dimension as a fundamental referent of the economy and politics, both nationally and globally. In this sense, spatial variables are increasingly determinant with the location of production, trade flows and sociopolitical aspects of development. Also in Latin America, as in the rest of the world, a new spatial logic is permeating economic, political and social processes, constituting a fundamental concern of Marketing management, aimed at achieving business objectives of the territories through Brand-Territory.

Characterization of fiscal sacrifice and the importance of incorporating its cost in the public budget process: a phenomenological approach

 

This paper reveals that the characterization of tax sacrifice depends on the interdisciplinary treatment given to the issue of tax expenditures and tax benefits. The feelings of subjects with experience in this matter are expressed, providing interpretations to the following questions: How can tax sacrifice be characterized in the regulatory framework of the Venezuelan context? Which tax benefits are considered tax expenditures? In order to answer this question, it is proposed that tax sacrifice comprises an economic effort by the State that affects the development of certain economic sectors and the fulfillment of social objectives aimed at improving the collective welfare. The methodology assumed is of a dialogic nature, from Husserl’s phenomenology (1997), as an approach and method, which tries to understand, in an immediate way, the world of man through an intellectual vision based on the intuition of the thing itself. The instruments used for the collection of information are represented by semi-structured interviews applied to key informants, as well as a structured intentional analysis matrix (Krippendorff, 1990) according to the dimensions of the study. In closing, the following categories were revealed: Phenomenological characterization of tax sacrifice; Effects of tax sacrifice on the budget formulation process; and, Identification of the approach to define reference taxes and tax expenditures present in the national taxation regulatory framework.

Valuation of tourist stories from an interdisciplinary perspective

Tourism practice nourishes stories that allow the interpretation of attractions. Its design is usually hand in hand with a marketing of tourist destinations that responds to hegemonic interests. These are frequently elaborated from a positivist perspective, lacking a critical view of specific socio -historical processes. In this way, the seemingly neutral reproduction of these speeches replicates the idea of ​​a mythical past, away from territorial reality. Are there new ways to develop these stories that move away from empty looks? What tools can allow their renewal, without losing historical rigor? How could these new forms contribute to the authenticity of tourist experiences?

This communication reflects on the possibilities that recent history can contribute to the creation of new tourist stories from interdiscipline. To do this, it takes as a prison in the city of Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, also known as the end of the end of the world, today converted into a museum and a complementary attraction of the offer of this destination.

The current interpretation of this attraction emphasizes crystallized historical aspects in the prison processes of the first half of the twentieth century and set aside the socio -historical linkage of this space to the recent Fuegian reality. In this sense, the idea of ​​the negative as part of the past is presented and leaves the present exempt from conflict.

In this context, recent history enriches tourist stories by providing various data that clarifies and diversify consolidated constructs around specific attractions. On the other hand, tourism, for its informative quality, helps to make visible facts and historical processes of the territories in which it develops. In addition, due to its massive character, it awakens interest and allows access to historical knowledge to multiple sectors of the population.

The study that we present here is concentrated in two aspects: on the one hand, in the work experience of training teachers in pedagogical couples including a professional in the area of ​​natural sciences and another of social sciences. The formation of the group, the institutional framework, the elaboration of didactic agreements, and the forms of adoption of common approaches for the approach of socio -environmental problems/conflicts are analyzed.

On the other hand, it is considered the articulation process carried out by the students, from different specialties, in the development of a didactic project that addresses a local problem or conflict, attending to their contextualization and institutional framework, analyzing issues such as : What aspects facilitate or hinder the development of these projects? How is the transversality of integral environmental education addressed? How do the specialty's own approaches relate?

Indigenous peoples have a wealth of knowledge, traditional practices, cultural forms and access to natural resources, as well as forms of collective social organization and community life that make them resilient in the face of adversity and uncertainty. Rural communities face the greatest risks of labor automation, as their economies tend to have activities with a high proportion of repetitive tasks, low economic diversification and out-migration of highly skilled labor. Preparing rural economies to face the challenges and reap the benefits of technological change is crucial to make the most of the digital age for individuals and businesses. It is necessary to develop learning management based on the Moodle platform for the improvement of teaching and learning processes in the area of technology and information technology, because in rural regions of Colombia the policies needed to realize the promises of digital technologies for growth and rural welfare are an open debate. It is necessary to recognize the existence of a traditional episteme and to analyze the plurality of knowledge in the tradition of knowledge, in the socio-cultural scenarios that are produced, in order not to continue perpetuating the forms of social, cultural and educational reproduction under a unilateral vision regarding knowledge.

Multidimensionality in the study of recyclable valorization at the urban level

Sustainability evaluation acquires increasing recognition as a diagnostic strategy to move towards ecological, social, economic and political objectives contained in the Sustainable Development Paradigm, responding to relevant environmental concerns in cities, such as management of urban solid waste and within it, the promotion of recyclable valuation such as a central axis of the circular economy and inclusive recycling. The theoretical-methodological proposal implemented in the study of the recyclable valuation in the intermediate city of Mar del Plata, Argentina is presented. It addresses the complexity of recyclable valorization from a systemic and integrative approach, positioning research within the epistemological framework of urban sustainability. In this way, the political, economic, social and ecological dimensions that constitute sustainability from different disciplinary perspectives at the beginning of the investigation are articulated. The interdisciplinary approach implemented through the theoretical-methodological perspectives allows a review of the foundation of various disciplines that study different aspects of recyclable valorization, through which the relationship of the valorization with the political, economic, economic, economic dimensions is modeled , social and ecological of urban sustainability. The case study to which the proposal is applied, verifies that the low articulation of approaches that study the valuation as a complex system at the urban level, affects its operation, the implementation of integrated waste management strategies and consequently to the Urban sustainability. At the same time, it provides a series of indicators that contribute to the development of public policies that advance towards a situation of greater sustainability at the local level.

Dungeons (ideological) and dragons (cognitive): behavioral sciences and their role in the conceptualization of the climatic crisis

In recent years, numerous publications have appeared that try to generate a framework for the application of neurocognitive knowledge for the resolution of social problems. Under the nickname "behavioral sciences" this field of studies that is presented as deeply interdisciplinary is proposed social. We focus our gaze on certain epistemological and ideological aspects that underlie these initiatives, particularly regarding the conceptualization of the climatic crisis as a problem related to being solved through knowledge generated by cognitive sciences. We observe, exemplify and problematize a series of premises: the behavior of the individual as a terminal expression of an "internal" process in which the environment and by extension the "social" are subordinated in terms of their explanatory hierarchy, as suppliers of stimuli; The simplification of the problems to be solved in terms of biases and cognitive limitations, so that the objectives of the intervention are the behaviors and decisions of individual actors; The appeal to biology as an explanatory support for the validity of the psychological constructs used through the identification of neural correlates and adaptationist narratives on the development of innate cognitive functionalities.

As observed, we maintain that the generation and application of knowledge in this type of initiatives is limited and in turn feeds a marked ideological line, according to which the main causes of the climate crisis are not found in the dynamics and contradictions of the socioeconomic system in force, but in those of individual cognitive systems. That is, conceivable interventions are about the consumption behaviors of individuals, but not on systemic dynamics of production and exploitation.

Classification model for student attrition in a peru public university

Neuroscience revolutionizes education, provides new methods to understand cognitive development and learning and indirectly evaluates the effectiveness of different pedagogies. Neuroeducation begins by studying how cognitive systems are built on sensory systems by providing a detailed understanding of the causal mechanisms that are linked throughout the student’s holistic development. This type of basic neuroscientific research guides the field of education and pedagogy by exploring the effects in different pedagogical and learning contexts. In the era of the techno-knowledge society, technology is transforming education. Online learning platforms, educational games and mobile apps are just some of the tools used to improve the teaching and learning process. Neuroscience contributes to the development of online education, by identifying the limitations of attention and concentration in learning and the need to adjust the design of digital platforms to address these problems. This research investigates advances in neuroscience and education. That are achieved thanks to the brain imaging techniques available in recent decades, the perspectives about the integration between both disciplines are discussed. Studies show that neuroscience and education offer more than enough accumulated knowledge to contribute substantially to education policies, teacher training and school practice.

Sustainability, gender and agroecology. An interdisciplinary articulation proposal for the approach

In recent years there is a change in public policy decisions around the prevailing production model, especially reinforced in the Pandemia by COVID-19. Both nationally and provincially postulates agroecology as the alternative to the conventional production model -dedicated to the Technological Package of the Green Revolution. In this sense, in the projection of sustainable agroecology practices it is considered necessary to incorporate the gender dimension in a transversal way, both in production practices and in organizations related to public policies design for the sector. Framed in the Gender and Development Project: Survey and Analysis of Innovations and Technologies for the Resolution of Socio-environmental Problems in Argentina from a gender perspective, (Pict-Fancyt 2022), the theoretical-methodological proposal implemented by the Sustainability Node is presented and gender, based on the Faculty of Architecture Urbanism and Design of the National University of Mar del Plata. It uses a mixed type methodology from an analytical framework that articulates central concepts of sustainability and gender studies with concepts of technology sociology. With this approach, we seek to contribute to more plural strategies in the design of public policies, putting in dialogue the concepts based on the systems approach as a way of thinking in terms of connectivity, relationships and context with an interdisciplinary character.

Extractivisms and relational ontologies: actors and interests in dispute

In a scenario like the current one, in Argentina, various extractivist models that sweep the human and non -human territories and people that inhabit them are implemented. It is from the hoarding of land and water sources, the use of the knowledge and knowledge of the members of the indigenous and peasant peoples who, foundations, civil associations, companies and governments, implement projects of (bad) development (Svampa, 2014) and public policies without consultations to their peoples or the necessary environmental impact reports. In spite of this, speeches linked to relational ontologies become more frequent among the various governmental and non -governmental actors that, far from understanding and building other alternative worlds to inhabit the territories, consolidate and deepen existing inequalities (Danowski and Viveiros De Castro, 2019; Gudynas, 2015; Machado de Araoz, 2019).

Some questions that will guide this presentation are: In which scenarios are these projects implemented and what are the transformations they generate?; What is the role of the members of the indigenous communities in these projects?; What are the true potentialities presented by sustainable development projects in environmental and cultural matters?; What is the role that academics assume in these scenarios? How is it possible to build other possible worlds in scenarios such as the current one?

To answer these questions, we will focus on the case of the Chaco region, in which we have been working for a decade and from which, we have carried out collaborative works with the members of the indigenous and peasant communities.

Investigate in citizen participation methodologies under a territorial approach. From field work theory

In recent years, the application of research methodologies based on the participation of citizenship and social groups, which become a collective construction of knowledge, problems and solutions, is charging great relevance. These, seek to give innovative ways to know and address complex phenomena, encompassing under the paradigm of interdisciplinarity. Through these approaches, not only economic or cultural aspects are addressed, but also natural and environmental, which their materialization have in the Society-Territory binomial.

From the university environment, entering these citizen participation techniques requires an approach that is built both from the theoretical and from the practical level, based on this second on a constant field work. An example of this is collaborative cartography, which becomes an extremely useful citizen participation tool, but also in its application for urban-territorial and environmental management. The theoretical bases in the classroom with the students are based, the application of them will be carried out in a direct field work with the society that inhabits the space, in which tools such as collaborative maps will be applied, not only for Apply these methodologies for citizen participation, but to settle much more specific projects that meet the real needs of these populations, thus creating a teaching methodology settled in the University-Social Binomial.

Environmental management, eco-efficiency and its relationship with the optimization of solid waste

In recent years, various investigations have been carried out on environmental management, eco-efficiency, and the optimization of solid waste, becoming a topic of great relevance, not only in the environment but also for the future of humanity. In different countries, the management of solid waste has been considered as one of the greatest challenges in governments, especially due to the economic issue. To determine the correlation that exists between environmental management, the eco-efficiency of municipal workers and its relationship with the optimization of solid waste. An applied quantitative research was carried out, it had a non-experimental design, with a causal correlational scope, the population was made up of 340 employees of the solid waste management sub-management of a municipality in Lima, using a probabilistic sample for convenience of 191 collaborators. The information for this study was obtained through three instruments, from which acceptable reliability levels were obtained, through the Cronbach alpha statistical process, the technique used was the survey. The approach of the proposed hypotheses is confirmed, where it is verified that the environmental management and the eco-efficiency of the workers significantly influence the optimization of solid waste, obtaining a partial correlation of zero order with a (0,763 and pvalue=0,000) , given through the indicators of the logistic regression used with the pseudo r square of the Nagelkerke model (0,861), which explains the level of influence of the variables on the optimization of solid waste. It was concluded that the environmental management and the eco-efficiency of the workers significantly influence the optimization of solid waste, therefore it is determined that the municipalities and the workers dedicated to the environmental field are responsible for carrying out an appropriate management of the optimization of solid waste, likewise it is necessary for municipalities to prioritize the reuse, recycling, and treatment of solid waste, finally it is necessary for the municipality to train its workers so that they can implement new initiatives for improvement of environmental management.

The main objective of this research is to highlight the iconographic, material and technical elections that would evidence the circulation of knowledge and products in that environment, as well as the ways in which a local production was developed, linked to artists and resources Materials and technological, consistent with ecclesiastical policies in the area.

In this work there are some aspects of the visit to the temples that pointed to the realization of an extensive photographic survey of the visual systems of each and the chemical analysis of the materials that make up their wall paintings. For the latter, there was an portable X -ray fluorescence spectroscopy equipment (FRXP) to determine the elementary composition of the materials present. The application of this type of techniques, non -invasive and in situ a way favors the exchange of knowledge between chemistry professionals, art history and conservation in an interdisciplinary context. Thus, it is possible to work in an integral way in the same places to understand the production materials and techniques, the deterioration of objects and plan their conservation, based on active exchange with the people and communities that are responsible for the temples and heritage that They house.

Impairment of performance skills and maturational age in infants due to gestational Zika

Introduction: Zika virus is transmitted by the bite of infected mosquitoes, but can also occur through intrauterine infection before delivery, and the virus passes to the fetus. Objective: to describe the level of impairment in performance skills and maturational age of children in the Courageous of the Future program with neonatal Zika virus infection. Materials and Methods: the research is framed with a quantitative approach of correlational type supported with a field research and non-experimental design, with a sample of 15 infants of 3, 4 and 5 years old. The collection technique used was the Abbreviated Scale. Results: Regarding the areas evaluated with respect to the maturational age, it was found that the weighting of motor skills and praxis found a correlation coefficient of 0,601 (moderate) and in the sample of the execution skills of 3-year-old children with gestational Zika, a correlation of 0,853 (strong) was obtained. Discussion: Zika virus infection in children, acquired during gestation, strongly limits the performance skills characteristic of the maturational age in this population. Conclusions: there is correlation between infants with gestational zika and the strong affectation in the actions or behaviors that a patient has to move and interact physically with activities, objects and therefore perform a learned motor activity.

Medical expertise, rape of minors and low civil reparation, in the superior court of justice of Peru

The objective is to demonstrate that the effective penalty in sexual violence against minors is explained by the circumstantial evidence and the Agreement 2-2005/CJ-116 in the Criminal Chamber of a Superior Court of Justice of Peru 2022, where the medical expertise is especially important and has little impact on the civil reparation. It is a non-experimental research, a review of 56 second instance sentences and an observation form was used. Infringement against minors is latent in the regions of Peru, in 2019, 5500 complaints were known and in 2020, 5521 complaints of sexual violence against women were counted. They are victims of violence, 16 girls and young women every day in the years 2020-2021, the number of cases of teenage mothers under 15 increased from 1158 to 1438. A direct and significant qualitative correlation of 70 % was found between the expert evidence and conviction. The Rho is 40 % between penalty and civil reparation, which is direct and moderate. It was also proven that the higher the penalty, the more moderate the civil compensation. The conclusion is that the medical expertise as a means of proof is conclusive in the decision taken by the jurisdictional body. And the civil compensation is generally much lower than the damage caused.

Interdisciplinary research in dialogue with isleñx villagers of the lower Delta of the Paraná Organdxs in defense of its territory and its ways of life

In 2008, the emblematic socio -environmental conflict originated by the progress of a closed urbanization over 365 ha of island territory, in the Anguilas stream, Delta del Río Paraná, Tigre Party. The company Col Col Park S.A. Performs a first stage of dredging works, widening of the stream, clearing and fillings without having the required administrative permits, or environmental impact study presented. In addition, he directs actions of intimidation, harassment and destruction of the housing of Junqueras and fishermen residents in the Anguilas stream, ignoring his right over these lands (Cooperativa Isla Esperanza, 2013; Astelarra, 2015, 2017). This interdisciplinary work group is formed in order to evaluate the current environmental situation after 10 years of the Judicial Closing of the Colony Park project. Changes in free water and surface coverage were studied in the Linking Canal area and the San Antonio, Luján and Río de la Plata rivers. In turn, the spontaneous vegetation developed in the place since then was characterized. On the other hand, chemical and microbiological analyzes of water from the Anguilas stream and other nearby courses were carried out with the aim of determining its aptitude for consumption, purification and recreational use. Likewise, environmental education activities were designed and implemented together with island schools, where these themes were addressed. Participatory research-action strategies were applied together with members of the Isla Esperanza cooperative and other residents of the area to approach the various aspects of the project in a participatory manner, promoting a dialogue between academic and local knowledge. From the results obtained, the working group considers a priority to sustain the claim of public policies agreed with the island population that recognizes the current situation and stop the environmental degradation of the territory.

Co-production of knowledge: a transdiclinary experience for the construction of alternatives to extractivism

The expansion of extractive dynamics in recent decades, has deepened socio -environmental and socio -health conflict in our country. These conflicts have staged a series of citizen demands for the right to health, to the healthy environment, to the good living, which expose the enormous impact of these dynamics on health and environment.

Within the framework of these conflicts, in which from the state policy the communities are questioned to translate their practical knowledge (perception of their bodies and territories) in expert knowledge, the production of knowledge has become a central conflict factor. Universities, such as spaces for production and knowledge circulation, have in this conflict a fundamental place that requires being problematized. The links that universities establish with these social spaces raise multiple challenges about the character of socially legitimate knowledge, about the conceptions of university link / extension and on the public communication of science.

From the experiences of work with territorial organizations in three municipalities of the Metropolitan Region of Buenos Aires (RMBA): Escobar, Marcos Paz and exaltation of the cross, we will reflect on how it occurs and who are the subjects of the production of knowledge, Under what conditions and how knowledge produced, what is its social relevance and what is the role of the scientific field in a collision scenario between different spheres of law. To do this, we emphasize the co-production of knowledge, the transdisciplinary approach and the emphasis on the construction of alternatives from the collective health approach.

Network administration course using ancient techniques and modern means

Foreign Debt, Foreign Direct Investment, financial variablesEducational modalities based on any form of e-learning are becoming increasingly relevant in today’s society, since, on the one hand, and from an economic point of view, they are within the reach of millions of people on the planet, and on the other hand, they eliminate the space-time barriers that any type of course or teaching activity implies; However, there are still subjects and courses that are eminently practical, and their proper learning traditionally involves attendance, accompanied by the traditional practical activities with equipment and devices essential to complete their proper learning. The idea of dictating a completely distance course on network administration and services, a subject with the characteristics described above, aimed at professionals in the field from different universities and centers attached to the Ministry of Higher Education (MES) of Cuba, arises in response to the need to improve the level of preparation of new specialists who are engaged in the activity described; and the novelty of this experience lies in the use of a virtual platform that contains networks and IT devices (routers, switches, etc.), so that each student of the course is able to learn the basics of network administration and network services in a way that each student of the course has the opportunity to learn the basics of network administration and network services. ), so that each student in the course can have his or her own network devices, thus conditioning in a suitable way and with fewer economic resources, the acquisition of the practical skills that this science demands. We conclude by highlighting the high level of satisfaction, learning and skills acquired by the students, and we recommend the transformation of the course into a distance diploma course, aimed at anyone who wants to work as a network administrator in any of the entities attached to the MES.

Cannabis empirical-popular therapy in Argentina in a context of biomedicalization and epistemic violence

Biomedicine, as a hegemonic model of disease, has tended to subalternize, dismiss and criticize alternative health care strategies. It would operate in this process a certain epistemic violence that denies or disqualifies other knowledge, practices and ways of attending health care. The production of cannabis for therapeutic purposes, initially developed by people who sought treatment to problems that biomedicine did not solve, is an example of this. The current legislation in Argentina is an advance in the sense of not criminalizing the cultivation and use of cannabis for therapeutic purposes; However, it also enables a production that tends to standardize and industrialization of a product, while documented empirical-popular practice on this therapy involves the development of unique therapeutic experiences.

In that scenario, on the one hand, there is a certain denial of the validity of empirical-popular knowledge of cannabis therapy, constituting epistemic violence that sometimes promotes institutional violence. On the other hand, since the standardized production of therapies in the biomedicalization process tends to homogenization and industrialization, it can lead to the gradual abandonment or replacement of artisanal practices. We ask ourselves then: will it be the process of production and pharmacological standardization (in direct link with biomedical logic) respectful of these artisanal and popular practices of cannabis therapy? What will happen to those people who artisanally produce their therapeutic value oils when patented drugs legally circulate? Who/is the heritage about that knowledge and practices of popular origin of which scientists and pharmaceutical companies appropriate?

In this inquiry, we maintain that alternative health production modes have the potential to create other ways of thinking about health-disease, which are counterhegemonic and decolonial, to the extent that it is based on local problems and needs.

Of virtuality and face -to -face in interdisciplinary research

Following the pandemic, a group of grade students and researchers gathered in pursuit of a set of problems: ask ourselves what were the strategies implemented in the teaching-learning processes for the transfer to virtuality; which of these strategies facilitated access to the curricular content, to the accreditation instances of said content and which they hindered it.

Within the framework of the project “between the face -to -face and the virtual; Building hybrid relations in the educational practices of the National University of Córdoba ”, funded by SECyT (UNC), converged interests around the problem of emerging inequalities in the epidemiological context of Covid 19. In this research four disciplines attend: Law, Anthropology, psychology and philosophy. In this sense, we were able to, in the first place, analyze the renegation, relegation and omission of the situation of the students, by the National University of Córdoba and the Faculty of Psychology, both in virtuality and in the face -to -face Second, to delve between the limits and the possibilities of experiences that were shared by the students, and that we infer that it can be found in other academic units. Third, criticizing making visible and suggesting, simultaneously, an alternative proposal for educational linking.

We understand that this research explicitly the interdependence of the areas of study, since we achieve, in this interaction, dialogue, building, in a collection of knowledge and concepts. This refers to the possibility of territorializing knowledge and relating to them. This is also educated in the effects and affections of this work on the facilities, difficulties and inequalities of university students, seeking to give rise to those who were not given.

Model of parallel causes: a new way of understanding biological sex, its epistemological problems and its consequences in biomedicine

The definition of biological sex has undergone modifications in the last 20 years, in that period multiple primary determination factors that are associated with different diseases have been described. Despite this, this definition continues to present epistemological problems such as explanatory reduction, binary and biological logic. The offenses of this definition not only bring problems at the time of its interpretation, but also, at the time of its implementation in the primary health care for all those people who do not belong to the CIS - adultocentric standards. The objective of this work is to highlight that interdisciplinary aspects can be taken in biomedical research to produce more inclusive knowledge.

The methodology applied was qualitative - descriptive based on an online survey with 19 items applied to a population sample of 238 people from all over the province where social and cultural aspects, purchasing behavior, eating habits and consumption, relationships were consulted. with the family and the mitigation of stress produced by confinement. The main results were that the connectivity time was 80,7 % daily; the most used networks WhatsApp by 41,1 % and Facebook by 35,2 %; The content that attracted the most attention was the audiovisual content in 41,2 % in the format of stories with 43,7 %. That 39,1 % bet on a preference for local consumption, since security is in the first order with 69,3 %. Data that allow foreseeing that buyers should be approached by brands with more human content with a high dose of emotion.

The works of art as historical facts. Intersections in the field of theory and methodological approaches

The presentation refers to the approach of art works - in this case of the territory of the audiovisual - in how much historical facts and develops a discussion around theoretical and methodological frames of different extraction but whose complementation is considered fruitful for these studies. It will start from a semiotic approach that already integrates different origins-as can be slopes of rhetorical theory or the theory of enunciation-, within the discursive perspective developed by Eliseo Verón. This is an unavoidable opening if you seek to access the semiotic operation linked to the semantic production of the works. They will be convened in according to the term frames and notions connected to the study of works of art in history that are considered suitable for their interaction with the socio -meteric approach, for their attention to the forms and indivisibility of the work in regard to expression /content. As is the case with those that emerge from author's positions of Walter Benjamin and Aby Warburg, as well as readings of those positions that Georges Didi-Huberman and Giorgio Agamben have carried out. It will also appeal to the semi -anthropological perspective and the notion of semiotic recurrence developed by Oscar Traversa; And some notions, such as the actively, present in authors of Russian formalistic theory, such as Yuri Tynianov. The work hypothesis is that studying and discussing the complementarity of these approaches, as well as the possibility of articulating analysis methodologies that contemplate their integration, will result in the enrichment of the semiotic approach perspective when the time dimension is contemplated in the study of plays.

Construction of environmental knowledge through the development and use of free technologies for participatory environmental survey in wetland areas: a process of dialogic articulation between universities, schools, teacher training institutes and social organizations

Within the framework of the deep environmental, economic, political, social, cultural and ideological crises, collected by different authors under the concept of civilizational crisis1, Latin America's social communities and organizations resist the accumulation regime by dispossession, characteristic of the current economic model Global2. The ecological and social deterioration that this model produces, epistemologically questions our knowledge of the world3.

In the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, the progress of the industrial agriculture model represents a serious environmental conflict4, which puts into play the sustainability of human and non -human life. Degraded wetland systems5.6 of great ecological and cultural importance7. However, local studies about this impact are scarce. The techniques used for their determination require specific knowledge and equipment generally inaccessible to communities.

We present here the preliminary analysis of a project in progress that promotes teacher training and the construction of environmental knowledge through the use of free development technologies for the realization of participatory environmental surveys in wetland areas. It worked in the Saladillo party from a participatory research methodology8 together with a teacher training and a secondary level technical school, such as deepening a previous and continuous work9. It is reflected from a pedagogical-didactic perspective about the contribution of free technologies for environmental education. Instances of environmental rationality and environmental knowledge are analyzed that contribute to the understanding and transformation of the society-environment-nature relationship10, from a dialogic process between academic and popular knowledge, which combine the practical with the theoretical through lines of thought Critic with an approach based on popular education.

Culture and organizational structure of businesses in san isidro to boost local tourism

The work investigated was to analyze how the organizational culture of the well-organized businesses of San Isidro can boost local tourism, building a reference framework that allows acquiring knowledge of the organizational structure in communal shops, to facilitate the order and division of them activities of the community sector and thus having a reliable organization for the community. for it to be used the quantitative, qualitative methods, together with the method of experts, if the technique of the survey was used, the results were tabulated in the ESPSS 27, which allowed to draw the reliability of 0,89 seconds in the alpha of Cronbach alpha. One of the most preponderant elements that were found in research was essential for organizational culture, being in line with the structure, because it is the basis of a joint society to carry out a common good of any type of personal or group business, bearing in mind that this is the main part for the execution of the activities designated in the same, the organized trades are supplying the local visiting tourists and foreigners formed by entities that inhabit the locality are acquired as a point of knowledge of the various capacities, if seen expendable that the merchants receive organization workshops and a formalization of the structure of their business, only then will satisfy the visitors within the Parroquia San Isidro.

Those that have given birth to humanity. Women and production of bodies in the Mesoamerican West during the training period from the optics of social life production theory

It is proposed to reflect on women's work in the production of bodies, valuing the ability to conceive as exclusive contribution of us throughout the history of mankind. The Mesoamerican West is analyzed from The theory of the production of social life, from which a review is made of the interpretations that archeology has made of the representations female figurative, giving a symbolic connotation, linked to the fertility. In contrast, it is proposed to talk about this ability to produce bodies as work, which from a scientific perspective seeks to contribute balance in the knowledge of what we know of men and women during the training period in the Mesoamerican West, and with it, rediscuting the arguments around the Social Division of the Labor of Pretestatal Societies.

Finite element analysis of a jib crane jib with different types of steels

Introduction: Cranes are equipment used in industry, construction, manufacturing and maintenance, currently they are in high demand by the industry, because they allow lifting and moving loads within their range, Objective: Determine the relationship between the type of steel used in the manufacture of jib crane jibs and the natural frequencies of vibration. Methodology: A quantitative investigation was carried out, it had a pre-experimental design, 7 qualities of carbon steels with different mechanical properties were used, through modal analysis with the ANSYS software their dynamic responses were found. Results: It was found that the most important vibration mode is number 2, the natural frequency is 19,63 Hz; comparing the other values of the different materials vary by approximately 1 %. Conclusions: The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the types of static and dynamic behavior of a crane of seven different qualities of steel, the mechanical properties such as yield stress, tensile stress, do not influence the natural frequencies of the structure, it is in other words, it only influences if the mass (density of the material) and/or the geometry is varied.

Coordination between heterogeneous epistemic actors

This presentation will explore coordination dynamics between heterogeneous epistemic actors in the context of interdiscipline and knowledge hybridization. Many of the traditional interdiscipline approaches have focused on the integration of knowledge through the search for a common theory and language (Galison, 1997). This may include the creation of glossaries of terms and the definition of key concepts. However, recent perspectives have emphasized the importance of material and social aspects in coordination. These approaches are inspired by the concept of border objects, which can be defined as objects (in a very broad sense) that are in the limits between disciplines and communities, which serve to coordinate actors or social worlds in the absence of consensus (Star , 2010). Other important aspects are: the use of meta-work (Gerson, 2013), the work aimed at determining what work has to be done and how, and constitutes a key mechanism of coordination and integration, which extends time is standardized and It takes protocols, which can be used in various contexts; The interactive expertise (Collins, Evans and Gorman, 2007), which implies the acquisition of sufficient knowledge about a domain to interact with the experts of said space; Interoperability between methodologies and systems (Ribes and Bowker, 2009), which can imply the creation of data systems that are compatible with multiple methodologies and analysis tools; And finally, affective dynamics (Parker & Hettt, 2012) such as confidence, respect and mutual understanding are critical factors to promote effective collaboration between heterogeneous epistemic actors. In this presentation, I will discuss how these aspects can be applied to achieve better coordination between heterogeneous epistemic actors and presenting examples of its implementation in interdisciplinary research in neurosciences.

Decision-making in the tourism sector applying the balanced control panel management tool

This article aims to develop a balanced scorecard for decision making in the tourism sector. A methodology based on certain theoretical methods was used, in addition to the necessary information to bibliographically support the research, which was compiled from sites such as google academic, scientific articles, virtual books and expert methods. Among the results we can mention the methodological design of the Balanced Scorecard (CMI), analysis of the negative and positive aspects in the tourism sector of destinations, SWOT analysis, strategic map, matrix of the Balanced Scorecard applied to tourist destinations. The changes that occurred in the CMI found in the bibliography were classified according to their content, to address specific issues; create subsections in perspective and adapt the BSC for its application in these tourist destinations. It is concluded that the current validity of this management control tool is due to its flexibility to adapt to any organization and/or tourist destination.

Current modalities of sexual relations in the West. History and characteristics of non -monogamies and their contributions to reflection on the ethics of relationships

This work describes the modalities of sex affective relationship in our current west.

Analyze the historical conditions of the emergence of non -monogamic relationship modalities and its ties with feminism and other historical, social and political changes and movements. He explains how the polymorge collective takes over from the homosexual and trans collective in the struggle for the conquest of new freedoms and rights;

Describe the differences between monogamy as a system and as a practice; and the differences between ethical and non -ethical monogamy.

It encompasses under the denomination of "ethical relations" different types of relational agreements: ethical monogamy, open couple, polyamor and relational anarchy (infidelity is radically excluded from these modalities, which are explicitly agreed by all the people involved).

While ethical monogamy is an existing and implemented option by many couples, most of the learning of ethical relationships come from non -exclusive relationships, surely because, being a totally marginal relationship modality in the monogamous heterocispatriarchal system, Monogamo, It needs much more reflection, dialogue and agreed agreements.

This work also traces the learning and awareness enhanced by these new relationship modalities and proposes a map of proposals to build more egalitarian and careful relationships, with greater degrees of freedom and development, both personal and linking.

Ethics and human subjects research. WHO/PAHO criteria and requirements

Introduction: since the emergence of medical practices and scientific research to deepen the knowledge of the human body, reactions to substances, possible cures to diseases, man was forced to regulate his actions in this area, mainly driven by the restraint imposed by the Church, since man is the image and likeness of God. Objective: to determine the main requirements of the WHO and MINSAP in the area of research with human beings. Method: a bibliographic review was made of 32 articles on the subject, in journals in the period of 2021. Result: a series of precepts or laws were drawn up which, from the ethics of human dignity, raised the need to treat with respect those who received medical services. Such is the case of the Hippocratic Oath, which is considered the oldest code of ethics in the field of health, and which is still in use today, with some modifications. With the events of the concentration camps in NAZI Germany, and the research carried out by the doctors with the prisoners, the world realized that it was necessary to set down in international laws the procedures by which the researchers should be governed in the future. Thus arose the Nuremberg Code, which emerged from the trials of war criminals. Later, the World Medical Association, meeting in Helsinki, elaborated another code, the Helsinki Code, with the same aims but more elaborate, and finally many countries felt the need to elaborate laws within their nations to regulate research.

Indigenous autonomy and participatory science: from epistemological and political analysis to epistemological-political

This presentation focuses on indigenous movements of territorial autonomy that maintain environmental conflicts with states due to extractive activities, and has the purpose of identifying obstacles on the strategic path of autonomy. The participatory science program (CP) will be analyzed, which motivates incipient public policies in different Latin American countries for the treatment of environmental problems in conflict scenarios. In its most substantive form, the CP is presented as a response to increasing demands by citizens and communities of political participation and democratization of decisions about territories, now in the activity of knowledge production, putting science to service to service of the problem defined by an expanded community. The CP has contextual advantages and disadvantages that cannot be reduced by a single approach. In this work I focus on a specific aspect. I show that any translation between the environmental representations of the different actors appeals to "logical equivalence" that allow the problem to be taken to their cognitive-scientific treatment. These logics grant a certain range of agency to what we can mean and perform collectively, and in this line, it is shown that there is a specific and systematic rooting between the language of scientific naturalism and the liberal institutionality of European origin. In certain cases, these opaque equivalences can impact substantively on "epistemic" or "hermeneutic" injustice, and in the achievement of epistemic autonomy related to territorial autonomy. To map these impacts I present the “epistemology-political” approach as a strategic input for critical social theory.

Perspective of tourism in the development of communities in the province of Manabí – Ecuador

The lack of complementary alternative services to catering, the lack of knowledge of the population in the implementation of guidelines that lead to the diversification of services, and the deficient application of procedures, policies, norms in tourist activities, are factors that have affected profitability.  in the economic, sustainable growth of businesses, and in the improvement of the quality of life of the population. The purpose of the research is to design a management model, for the tourist development of the Rambuche community, Canton-Jama, to arrange the articulation, community-governmental entities-market and current regulations. The investigative methodology is empirical, descriptive with a qualitative and quantitative approach. The results show that they lack complementary services to the restoration and the inhabitants require alternatives such as: accommodation, agro-ecotourism, cultural and sporting events, animation, ecotourism trails among others, for community tourism development; for which a management model has been developed to achieve the proposed objective of the investigation.

Interdisciplinary accompaniment of academic trajectories, in teacher and psychopedagogical training

Accompanying training trajectories is presented as one of the imperatives of the higher level. There are two components solidarity responsible for this accompaniment: collaborate in the processing of the cognitive difficulties that all entry to a new level brings with it and the very of organizing and traveling your training.

The other aspect is the granting to the students, of a place for active listening, which meaning them, to concession word that empowers and emancipe, and the generation of a scenario for communication and social bond in The classroom, and that all this is a subjectivating offer for teachers and students.

They appear in this accompanying constituent elements of each career, of the disciplinary gaze that is their own, a type of language that gives each specialty a way of communicating/se, of elaborating the professional positioning and the conjunction of all this with Epistemic looks that characterize a type of knowledge, which will give professional support and that, to teach, must know the methodological aspects to be able to transpose them. That same positioning and that professional livelihood that each student will build in their academic career, will be the baggage necessary to generate institutional approaches, other didactic proposals and different psychopedagogical interventions.

Within this framework, interdisciplinary positions, sustained in the thinking of complexity, can generate an integral development perspective for each student, and unique experiences that each one will display, in the joint and collaborative work between peers and our intervention, an important instance for their training and for the task they will develop in the future, in the accompaniment of the school trajectories of children and adolescents in schools working collectively, interdisciplinary.

The hyflex Model and the teaching-learning process in Peruvian Educational Institutions, Case: INEI 34

The main purpose of the research entitled: “The HyFlex Model and the teaching-learning process at the INEI 34 Educational Institution, Chancay”, was to determine the relationship between the HyFlex model and the teaching-learning process at the INEI 34 Educational Institution, Chancay. In terms of methodology, a quantitative approach was used, with a non-experimental transectional design and correlational level, with a population of 90 teachers and a participating sample of 73 teachers. Likewise, the information was compiled by means of a survey, having as an instrument a questionnaire that obtained a reliable value of 0,981 and a validity of 0,85, respectively. At the end of the information management, it was demonstrated with a positive and moderate correlation of 0,640 and an asymptotic significance (0,001) lower than the significance level (p=0,05), which affirms that the HyFlex model has a direct relationship with the teaching-learning process in the INEI 34 Educational Institution, Chancay. This allowed inferring that the HyFlex model will contribute to the implementation of content and educational commitment, as well as to an evaluation of learning, using technology, to provide flexibility in the educational experience of the students. In other words, this model will improve the teaching and learning process in a hybrid environment, in which students benefit from learning and in which the teacher is an agent of support for them.

Towards a decolonial health

Upon the arrival of the Europeans to Abya Yala, the pre -existing peoples and nations were forced to rule out our constituent ancestral parameters on the management of health, disease, life, death and incorporate taxes by a culture that had not yet been resolved for itself, This current vision of universality of health.

 Modern Western logic imposes a universalist premise and hurt on the human body. As a predictable and independent machine, therefore, it studies it in parts, from there the hyper specializations, and the diseases as it causes demonstrable effects scientifically, and almost the mostly the material biological effect is treated, without any link with the emotional and/ or subtle.

This cut universalist belief of Western medicine is perhaps, one of the failures to so many unresolved problems on different continents, in the face of diseases. To achieve the myth of these stereotyped public policies, foods are distributed from the first years of life, to populations; Without taking into account his diets, his cultures, without understanding, for example, that the intestinal flora of a Charrúa child on the Costa del Paraná is not equal to that of the Californian coast. Medical recommendations are taken without taking into account sociocultural and environmental conditions.

At present, and despite the varied legislation in force in our country, Argentina, on the health rights of indigenous populations, the policies in this regard are only in dead letter without reaching its effectiveness. Adding one more historical debt.

Health is and will be for us peoples, a commitment to life, in the broadest feeling. A harmonious interrelation with the same, with the human and cosmic community where we develop. The medicinal practices determined by the principles of reciprocity, interrelation and correspondence with the whole in all dimensions of the lives.

Procedure for the selection of suppliers as a contribution to quality in the management of restaurants in the city of Manta

The tourism industry is currently considered one of the most dynamic sectors in development, both locally and internationally, becoming one of the main economic sources for many countries. Gastronomy based on native dishes is undoubtedly one of the main attractions generated by tourist mobility, which determines the need for studies on the quality of merchandise and the correct preference of suppliers. The objective of this article was to develop a procedure for the selection of suppliers to support the management of restaurants in the city of Manta. The developed study is of a quantitative, descriptive, non-experimental type, the method of experts was used in the identification of the examined criteria, through Saaty’s Analytical Hierarchy. An integral index was proposed that allows the selection of suppliers that guarantee the highest quality of the merchandise and coincide with the purchasing standards established by the business unit. Its pilot application in a local restaurant evidenced the practical value of this proposal and its possibility of generalization under the principle of flexibility.

Mathematics and Mathematics: in the media between the arts and sciences

The question about interaction and possible dialogue between science and arts gradually appears in the history of Western thought as those who practice trades whose associated knowledge are found in what we could call the border between both territories, they become aware, in Some cases, of the most technological-instrumental character of the objectives of its discipline and, in others, of its sense more related to emotional or "spiritual" aspects of human life.

Without pointing to an archeology of such (s) historical process (s), the purpose of this article or presentation is to focus a territory of human intellectual activity that, in my opinion, occupies a very particular position in the sense of lend to that double consideration as science and as art, that is, as guided by techno-instrumental purposes and/or, depending on the cases, for aesthetic order aspirations. I am referring to mathematics.

I will try to show by examples taken from history, how in many cases transcendental contributions in this discipline entailed palmarias samples of being guided by criteria of beauty or sense of aesthetic harmony that transcended the requirements of logical or epistemological rigor.

In addition, I will mention that the reverse situation is not uncommon: artists looking for beauty or aesthetic harmony in mathematical models or even computational logical resources to inspire or guide their productions.

Epistemological reflections on Inter and transdiscipline from the perspective of dialectical thinking and the paradigm of complexity

The objective of the presentation is to offer some epistemological roots for the discussion between current paradigms.

We will attend to the following analytical dimensions:

- Ontological issues: categorical scaffolding for an organic and holistic conception of the phenomena that are studied, attending to the stratigraphic character of reality and the dialectic-expression and integration of all organized reality (Hegel, Piaget, Goldmann).

-Epistemological issues: models available to overcome atomistic, devitalized and historical conceptions promoted by classical science and positivism (ecology of knowledge -Bateson, Samaja, of Sous the complexity from the so -called "hard sciences."

- Pedagogical issues: training of professionals sensitive to their social and historical context, capable of thinking globally to act locally, problem -based training, promotion of agency, prominence and social commitment, cultivators of the collective production of knowledge.

- Methodological issues: an expanded methodology that integrates the contexts of discovery as well as those of justification, motivated by a critical-epistemological reflection, away from any prescriptive conception, which offers resources and models to investigate from complexity.

- Ethical-ideological issues: dialogic and collectivist vocation in the production of knowledge. Motivation for creativity at the service of socially enhanced and inclusive transformations, which promotes practices of hegemonic science resistance to the service of capital reproduction.

- Programmatic-institutional issues: redefine institutional practices, motivating the integration between professionals, recovering the plenary sense of human life (which resists the alienation of the consumer society). Conceive integrative and collectivist proposals. Articulate research with actors from multiple social spaces.

As a general framework of the reflection we will comment on the "Manifesto of the Transdisciplinarity" of Basarab Nicolescu, which inspires the foundations of each of the proposed analytical dimensions.

Social responsibility and tourism supply: the case of San Clemente and San Jacinto, Manabí, Ecuador

Corporate social responsibility has an extremely wide field of action at all levels and in any type of economic activity, so the tourist area is no exception. The present investigation which had as purpose to analyze the social responsibility to improve the tourist offer in the sectors of San Clemente and San Jacinto in Manabí, Ecuador. The research was framed with a quantitative approach and under the descriptive modality. The estimated population was 381 inhabitants and a sample of 104. The questionnaire structured on a Likert scale with 3 response categories was used as an instrument. The results indicate that 60,5 % of the respondents know little about the ordinances of the Canton that are related to the tourist aspect. Likewise, 50 % consider that the sociocultural training process has had little impact on the responsibility of users of tourist resources in spas. On the other hand, the actors involved in tourism companies seem to remain on the sidelines or are not taken into account to generate public politics that allow tourism development of San Clemente and San Jacinto.

Towards a feminist epistemology of Tourism

Although the majority of the tourism workforce is female, the academic production of this discipline, which has been addressed in universities since the 1970s, is mainly represented by cisgender male authors. From the initial studies on leisure time to the current reflections on the development and territorial management of tourism, the identification of sources with a gender perspective, or elaborated by women, is strikingly absent. Problems such as the sticky floor or the glass ceiling in organizations providing tourism services, the gender dimensions - double working day, precariousness, sexual harassment, sexualization of the activity - in tourism work, the social representations of solo female travelers, the design of non-inclusive equipment and facilities, tourist cities and their layout for male enjoyment, among others, are scarcely investigated by this field of knowledge. From the hegemonic narratives, the existence of "Sex Tourism" is naturalized as a typology linked to the motivations of the demand. Thus, the vulnerability of women, children, youth and dissidents is increased and at the same time made invisible in the face of the cisheteropatriarchal view of this phenomenon, considered as neutral and free of social tensions, ignoring its criminal genesis. Other disturbing aspects of contemporary analyses reveal severe conflicts between poverty, marginality and enjoyment of leisure, between very asymmetrical social groups, in practices such as "Slum Tourism" or Tourism of Poverty.

From this point of view, this paper attempts to question these realities in the generation of scientific knowledge, and focuses on the ways of classroom intervention and the challenges that teachers of Tourism at the higher level should face in order to develop their pedagogical experience from a feminist tourism epistemology.

Environmental training experience at the Tijuana Ecopark Project, Mexico

The conservation of the environment depends, to a great extent, on the education of children and young people in this respect. In response to this and to the supposed limitations that a significant number of teachers present in the teaching of this problem, an exploration and training project was carried out through a course-workshop with the participation of elementary and high school teachers, with the objective of broadening knowledge about the problem of climate change: Its nature, causes and foreseeable consequences for regions with peculiar characteristics that make them a priority, as is the case of Mexico’s northern border, for which an Integral Instructional and Formative Curricular Design (DICIF) was used and adapted to apply it to environmental issues. The course was carried out in the environmental equipment called ECOPARQUE, directed by the Colegio de la Frontera Norte. This paper presents a brief introduction where reference is made to the importance of the Environmental Education Program of Ecoparque for the realization of activities within the so-called non-formal education, where the environment is taken as the integrating context of learning, then the methodology used is explained, showing the results obtained in the course-workshop on climate change called: “The strengthening of school environmental management in Baja California”, once the discussion of the same is presented, the conclusions are given to finish with the bibliographical references caused with the subject.

Towards a "Local Chagas network": presence of vinchucas in urban houses in San Juan and collaborative work between community, university, health and research teams

Chagas disease is a parasitic disease that affects about 6 million people in the world. There are different routes of transmission and in the Americas, vector-borne transmission is the most frequent. In Argentina, the main vector of Trypanosoma cruzi (etiological agent) is the vinchuca or bedbug Triatoma infestans, which mainly inhabits rural dwellings. However, in recent years, the only records of vectorial Chagas disease in the country come from the urban area of San Juan. This problem represents a challenge for the local health system, partly due to the fact that all vector control strategies are currently based on and oriented to rural areas. Within the framework of a broad project with field presence since 2021, involving social, cultural and eco-epidemiological aspects of Chagas disease, this work aimed to identify the network of actors and institutions (formal and non-formal) that could form a "Local network of work on Chagas disease". Through numerous meetings, exchanges, trainings and activities of visibility, dissemination and research, it was possible to generate a link with different actors involved such as members of the community, university, health and research teams in order to make visible and raise awareness of the Chagas problem with the ultimate goal of establishing a fluid and continuous dialogue among the actors. It is hoped that this experience and others planned for the future can contribute to give continuity to the work carried out on Chagas disease from a multidimensional perspective, thus involving more sectors of society and achieving the consolidation and sustainability of a local network.

Good environmental practices for sustainable tourism on the beaches of San Jacinto-Charapotó

This article carries out a study with an environmental approach, applying quantitative and qualitative research methods of a descriptive type, with survey techniques, interviews and observation sheets to inquire about the use of good environmental practices for the development of Sustainable Tourism in San Jacinto of Charapotó. The Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations General Assembly have been taken into account as a guide to promote a responsible attitude in business-environment relations, as well as the Code of Ethics for Tourism as a set of general principles of tourism development and the ISO 14001 standards as environmental protection standards, on the other hand, the Environmental Management Law in Ecuador as legal regulations for environmental protection, among other authors. The objective of the research is to provide viable alternative solutions to the problem from the point of view of recommendations suggested to tourist servers and relevant local authorities, since in the survey applied to travelers and through the observation sheet, it is determined that there is a negative impact on the environment due to solid waste and the lack of public policies aimed at protecting the environment. Good environmental practices in tourism and companies inherent in this sector are exposed, guidelines for sustainable management that are applicable according to the conditions and characteristics of the place.

Asbestos is a fibrous mineral with very good physical and chemical properties, which led to its increased use in the automotive and construction industries in the 1970s. At the time, it was a high-quality, low-cost solution, but over time, its negative impact on health has been demonstrated, leading to what has been called the "silent pandemic": a material declared a Type 1 carcinogen by the WHO. This pandemic is the result of ignoring its harmful effects, as inhalation of asbestos generates diseases that are currently incurable. The problem begins when asbestos reaches the end of its useful life in installed systems (many of which have been in place since the last century), making intervention urgent to solve a situation that is emerging as a socio-environmental problem: an environmental threat that impacts human and other living beings.

Comprehensive management of currently installed asbestos is the most efficient means of mitigating the environmental and biological risks associated with health, both human and ecological. Many countries have prescribed protocols related to its removal, but in the Colombian context, there is a lack of protocols for its identification, diagnosis, removal, and final disposal, although pilot studies are being developed at the local level.

Given all of this, asbestos has become a complex socio-environmental problem that must be addressed interdisciplinary in our context, studying its life cycle in all phases, in order to migrate from a linear and open cycle to a non-linear, closed, and circular one. This work aims to contribute to the construction of solutions through comprehensive material management for sustainable treatment that addresses the situation as an environmental health problem, i.e., a pandemic that impacts the built (technological) and ecological environments.

Competitiveness and value creation (eva), in peruvian mining companies 1999-2021

Mining companies have achieved unthinkable profits in the period from 1990 to 2021 that consolidate their assets, equity, profits. Objective: To prove that efficiency, efficacy and effectiveness are directly and highly related to the creation of economic value added (EVA) in the Peruvian mining sector, 1999-2021. Methodology: The finances of 15 mining companies have been reviewed. There are 345 files for 23 years. We have analyzed 357 accounts and 31 ratios, achieving 120 correlation coefficients, two econometric models with data from the Superintendencia del Mercado de Valores (SMV). Results: Correlation between EVA and efficiency (93 %), with efficiency (69,1 %) and with effectiveness (91,3 %). With total assets turnover (RAT) (0,939), net income (Un) (0,807), return on assets (ROA) (0,915) and return on equity (ROE) (0,911). The mining sector has created (EVA) for 6 181 million dollars in the 23 years. Conclusion: The creation of EVA of the sector requires that (ROA) and (ROE) are equal or higher than two digits.

Less is More? The Impact of Discursive Complexity on the Evaluation of Moral Arguments

The belief that using longer and more complex words makes a text appear better written is very common among university students. However, previous literature demonstrates that this is a myth: writing with greater simplicity produces the best results. Processing fluency (subjective experience of ease of processing information) robustly affects people's judgment on a wide variety of social dimensions; in particular, linguistic fluency is positively associated with intelligence, persuasiveness, truthfulness, among others. Previous studies have focused primarily on how people process text at the individual level; however, in the real world, we must often interact with others to solve problems through argumentation and deliberation. In this paper we investigate the effect of linguistic complexity on the perceived validity of arguments about controversial moral issues, and on the likelihood of agreement. For this purpose, we conducted three studies showing that the use of long words induces worse argumentation in:

- A large-scale behavioral experiment (N=10,548), where arguments with longer words receive lower ratings.

- A behavioral study in which (N=768) participants deliberated in online chat rooms on moral issues, with the task of trying to reach agreement, and where the probability of reaching consensus was decreased by the use of longer words.

- A randomized controlled experiment (N=600), where we observed that the use of long words significantly reduced perceived fluency, which in turn correlated positively with perceived validity.

In conclusion, this paper presents converging evidence that the use of long words (an indicator of linguistic complexity) leads to a worse appraisal of moral arguments.

Importance of interdisciplinarity in the technological development of food

Food science and technology addresses several challenges and current needs of the population: nutritional security, safety and sustainability. The current development of food poses new challenges and the need for interdisciplinary discussion in science, academic training and production systems. Among these we find: revaluation of food losses and waste (FWP) generated in the production chain. The transformation and obtaining of products capable of re-entering the food production chain improves sustainability, reduces the loss of resources and makes it possible to achieve circular production. In view of this, how should we train future professionals, what relevance does physics have in the development of new products obtained from PDA processing, what do new food designs require, and are creative and interdisciplinary solutions possible to help in the development of novel ingredients and foods? We know that technological changes require paradigm shifts and a holistic view. To achieve them, how can we train professionals with an outlook capable of creating and developing a resilient food system? Based on these questions, and working from 2019 in an interdisciplinary way, we proposed in 2022 to develop practices of physics students (FCEx-UNICEN) with application in food and performing part of the work in food laboratories of the FCV-UNICEN. Thermodynamic and mechanical studies of films obtained from protein biopolymers for PDA revaluation were addressed.  The experience showed in the students the awakening of new interests, questions and curiosities, besides acquiring new competences and a favorable learning of applied curricular aspects. Knowing that some competences can be universal, others can change according to the application environment. The results of this experience invite us to continue working and deepening the experiences with UNICEN students of physics and food science.

La Chalcona Fluorada detiene la progresión del ciclo celular en células de cáncer de mama triple negativo al disminuir la expresión de las proteínas Ciclina A, Ciclina B1 y Cdc 2

Introduction. Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) represents around 20 % of all cases of breast cancer worldwide, being one of the most aggressive cancers, as it is are associated with advanced tumor grades, as well as with several alterations in the expression of genes involved in the regulation of cell proliferation and survival. Chalcones [(1,3-diaryl)-2-propen-1-one] are valuable organic compounds for drug development, which have shown anti-cancer activity against various tumor cells, including breast cancer, due to the fact that they modulate gene expression in various mechanisms associated with cell growth and proliferation. Objective. To identify genes that could be involved with the anti-cancer effect of fluorinated chalcone, using the MDA-MB-231 cell line as a model of this condition. Methodology. We synthesized the chalcone derivative (E)-3-(4-fluorophenyl)-1-(2-pyrazinyl)-prop-2-en-1-one, by the Claisen-Schmidt condensation method. Then, using a Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) approach, we compared the transcriptomes of MDA-MB-231 cells treated vs. untreated, in order to identify the genes involved with the anti-cancer effect of fluorinated chalcone. Results. We found that this compound downregulates several target genes involved in the cell cycle progression, including: cyclin A, cyclin B1 and Cdc2 genes, in addition to increasing the genes expression that regulate this mechanism, such as: p21 and p27. Conclusion. This research indicates that fluorinated chalcone arrests cell cycle progression by regulating important genes involved in this mechanism.

The multi-paradigmatic and transdisciplinary character of Geography

It is difficult to define precisely the contents that are dealt with in the teaching-learning process of Geography today. This complexity is closely related to the equally complex definition of the discipline itself and the limits of its field of study. Starting from the question of why is it so difficult to define the limits of Geography, the aim of this paper is to determine the agents that hinder this process of definition. The answer lies in the multi-paradigmatic and transdisciplinary nature of Geography, which motivates different interpretations and approaches. Multiparadigmatic, because its knowledge is based on the diversity of geographical currents (regional, human, physical...), which cannot be reduced to a single paradigm. Transdisciplinary, because it has been nourished by the methods and approaches of other disciplines (Economics, Anthropology, Meteorology...) to explain the links between society and the environment (Economic Geography, Cultural Geography, Climatology...), in order to better understand the past and the present to anticipate the future. It is no coincidence that the transition from a school Geography, useful for training, which aims to contribute to the construction of a collective identity and the development of national awareness by creating a school culture, to a more scientific Geography, which seeks true knowledge and the solution to real problems, is still slow and complicated.

Epistemological approaches in economics and education: transversal axes in science, technology, innovation and development

Show a reflection on economic and educational epistemological approaches, offers different perspectives on the creation and application of knowledge to improve human life, so it is important to understand the different ways in which knowledge generation can be approached and its application of policies and strategies in key areas such as science, technology, Innovation and development. In a global context, epistemology plays a fundamental role in defining the theoretical and methodological frameworks that underpin research and decision-making in these areas, approaches ensure that development is equitable, resilient and sustainable, with a positive impact. The role of the university is fundamental for the stimulation of innovative capacity, especially in the educational system in Latin America; characterized by inequality and segmentation in access to knowledge, according to their educational capacity and income levels; Isolation of educational institutions from the social and economic realities of the local, regional and country level, and problems related to the quality and updating of knowledge, shortage of graduates in fundamental careers of socio-economic development, with initiatives and agents of change. Likewise, the praxis of the knowledge society explores the possibilities and limitations of different epistemological approaches, as well as their practical implications for the advancement of science, technology, innovation and development in the contemporary world.

Building dialogues between ethnobiology and chemistry: the process of elaboration of guayacán ink (Caesalpinia paraguariensis) among the Wichís of the Gran Chaco

Ethnobiology studies the links between humans and the natural environment. The axis guiding the studies is the understanding of how cultures conceptualize, classify, feel and use nature. The incorporation of information from other fields of the exact and natural sciences has been used in ethnobiology to analyze, for example, the influence that material characteristics have on the selection of different raw materials. Likewise, and although little explored so far, chemical information allows a deeper understanding of different processes, such as the ways of elaboration of ferments, dyes or tanning techniques. In order to exemplify the above, this paper analyzes the change in the elaboration of guaiacan fruit dye (Caesalpinia paraguariensis) within the Wichí community of Tres Pozos (Formosa, Argentina), from an approach that complements ethnobiological information with chemical analysis. This is a dye that the Wichís of the Gran Chaco have been using since ancient times to dye cháguar (Bromelia spp.) yarns black, and for which the method of elaboration has changed drastically over time: from mordanting with black mud to the absence of mordanting and, in replacement, maceration for long periods of time, a technique of difficult execution that the weavers describe as "fermentation". Chemically, the dye is composed mainly of hydrolyzable yellow-brown tannins that form complexes with black iron. While in the past the iron came from the mordant (mud), nowadays it is contributed gradually by the oxidized vessels; hence, if it is macerated for short periods of time and/or in vessels without surface oxide, the dyeing does not result in the desired color. The inclusion of chemical information allowed to broaden the understanding of the ways of elaboration of this dye, including the current difficulties of execution.

Analysis of financial education in regular basic education institutions

Teaching children and youth the skills they will need to become financially responsible adults is a top priority, so financial education should be a mandatory part of the curriculum at all educational levels. The objective of the study was to theoretically analyze financial education in regular basic education institutions. The research was based on a qualitative strategy based on a bibliographic review that was articulated around a sample of 50 academic publications that served as a basis, reference and bibliographic support. A search of sources was carried out using inclusion criteria established in the three academic databases with the highest impact (Scopus, Web of Science - WoS and Google Scholar). The findings show that educating young people from an early age about financial education and how it works has long-term benefits for society as a whole, as it enables them to make better decisions at both the microeconomic and macroeconomic levels. This is because they will be better able to manage their money, make educated decisions about saving, investing and financing.

The relationship of music education with cognitive skills in girls and boys aged 6 to 8 years: a comparative analysis between musicians and non-musicians

The scientific literature shows that musical training influences various human abilities. Such training includes cognitive processes such as sustained attention, repetition, and short- and long-term memory, potentially positively impacting children's memory. Previous research has revealed that music training improves speech processing and prosody perception. However, more recent studies have found inconsistent results regarding the relationship between music training and these skills. Some research suggests that music training may improve spatial skills in infants, although the literature regarding the relationship between music training and visuospatial skills in children is sparse. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship of musical training with memory, language and visuospatial skills in infants with and without musical training. Forty girls and boys aged 6 to 8 years old schooled in different educational institutions both in elementary schools and music conservatories, members of the Choirs and Orchestras Program of the Province of Buenos Aires and of the National Orchestras Program of Argentina participated in the study. The scores of memory, language and visuospatial skills evaluated through neuropsychological tests were compared. Infants with musical training received almost two years (M=2.07; SD=0.81) of previous musical training in institutions specialized in music. The results showed that the musically trained individuals scored higher on memory and language tests than the non-musically trained children. No other significant results were found. This study was conducted by an interdisciplinary team that included experts in psychology, neurosciences, music education and music therapy, which brings relevance to the results obtained in relation to the use of music in these areas.

Payment behavior model for students at a private university in Peru

With the enactment of Law No. 29947, “Law for the Protection of the Family Economy”, students use the educational service with the payment of tuition, demonstrating a poor payment culture, failing to pay tuition until the beginning of the next semester. This motivates the university to present a state of illiquidity.  The objective of the research was to develop a payment behavior classification model for students of a private university in Peru, with the purpose of predicting delinquency and compliance with payment commitments, through the implementation of strategies to improve the quality of the economic collection process. The methodology presents a research component of technological type, of propositional level, incremental innovation, the data collection was of retrospective type; with a synchronous temporal scope, because it was carried out in a short period of time, less than a year, the study population consisted of 8495 enrolled undergraduate students.  The results show a classification model to predict payment behavior, using the H2O.ai platform and the R programming language, the data were obtained from computer systems, using the CRISP-DM methodology used in data science solutions. The datasets for training, validation and testing correspond to 70 %, 15 % and 15 %; obtaining the GBM Grid classification model whose performance metrics are AUC of 0,6272, AUCPR of 0,8751 and logLoss equivalent to 0,4577.

Recampesinization: an audiovisual ethnography of the struggle for land in the municipality of Cario, Valle del Cauca, Colombia

The present research problematizes the meanings of the peasant's condition in the process of recampesinization in the Association of Displaced People "Prédio Argentina" located in the municipality of Cairo in the state of Valle del Cauca, Colombia. The research seeks to understand the recampesinization process in the community of Cairo from the analysis of images-photographs, murals and audiovisual productions made in the community. For this, it was necessary to carry out field work with the community of Cairo, from January to March 2022. Likewise, in order to deepen the meanings of displacement and its subsequent return to the countryside, I allow myself to conduct an analysis of the narratives and life stories present in the film "Recampesinization - Saving the Countryside" (2018). In this sense, the research seeks to reflect on ethnographic cinema as a field. The theoretical foundation of this work is based on the studies of visual anthropology in Colombia through the thought of the anthropologist-filmmaker Marta Rodríguez. Thus the director is a person interested in the history of Colombia and its conflicts. Her documentaries record the lives of workers, peasants, indigenous peoples and Afro communities affected by displacement and violence. He shows us how the work of the filmmaker-anthropologist can also be a form of ethical commitment and bond with communities.  This research is situated in the debate of visual anthropology, memories, narratives and the struggle for land.

Teacher training, work, profession in the pandemic and post-pandemic context

Learning and the challenges of the teaching job are not only framed within the teaching profession, but also respond to complex needs that arise from students in their development contexts. As new educational, political and economic scenarios emerge, the challenges for teachers are diverse because they are responsible for responding to the community and society as a whole. The current scenarios are very different from the initial ones of the school, which to this day pursue the purpose of seeking answers. The aim of the work was to identify what students learn and at the same time what are the challenges of the work, profession and teacher training after the pandemic. The teacher is a subject that society demands a particular profile and a degree of responsibility that does not happen with other professions, since he/she has a very complex task that requires many elements. It is necessary in this context to train teachers in a curriculum that develops both deep knowledge of content areas and effective pedagogical understanding, including digital technologies in a cross-cutting manner, with clear learning objectives that include knowledge, skills and attitudes. The study also focuses on the context of COVID-19, being necessary to introduce technologies in a transversal way in initial and continuous teacher training throughout the educational system, but also computational thinking.

Contribution to the exercise of the human right to education proposals: teacher trainers, educational institutions and teachers

The article is based on two central concepts to carry forward, the first focuses on education and the second on human rights. The importance of starting from these concepts is due to the fact that each person has the right to receive quality education based on human rights, where each subject can enjoy a protected, inclusive and free life. It is essential to analyze the practice of education from a perspective that starts from human rights directly linked to social inclusion, in addition to the possibility of making proposals that help and frame this type of contribution of the exercise of human rights in education. Education based on human rights provides different spaces for action where a political-pedagogical activity interacts, which has the purpose of building aspects in the classroom that provide better inclusion and social equity for all. Education must be guaranteed by the States because access to it is a right for all individuals and starting from an approach towards the exercise of a human right is to think that it can be a motor to train subjects on these bases and what truly Anyone can freely exercise it. Education has always had a fundamental role for development and changes in different societies, these changes have been made within and from human rights could not only be a challenge but would bring immediate improvements in the quality of the subjects individually and collectively.

How the interaction between human settlements and their sociocultural development favored the introduction and expansion of exotic species: The wild boar (Sus scrofa) in the sierras of Córdoba as a case study

In the last 300 years, mankind has transformed a large part of the planet's surface, drastically changing the landscape. One of the indirect factors of this modification is the voluntary or accidental introduction of invasive alien species (IAS). These produce severe ecological impacts and conflicts with human populations, such as the destruction of crop fields, attacks on people or domestic animals and the transmission of diseases.

In the province of Córdoba, one of the most relevant IAS is the wild boar (Sus scrofa).  This species has been recorded several times by rural inhabitants and tourist areas of the department of Calamuchita, Province of Córdoba, who have expressed their concern to the corresponding authorities.

The objective of this work is to present an analysis that gathers the results obtained in the framework of an environmental diagnosis oriented to wild boar management where the bibliographic information of the study area, the problem species and the perception of the problem by the inhabitants of Villa Berna interact. It describes how the geographic location, the geomorphological processes together with the climate shaped the relief and endowed the area with particular characteristics for the development of native biodiversity. These conditions, together with the influence of the first human settlements and subsequent cultural changes, subjected the system to economic and use practices that favored the introduction of exotic species. Over time, these species modified the landscape, producing characteristics that were appreciated by the settlers, but at the same time contributed to generate habitat components favorable for the establishment of the wild boar.

Breaking with university endogamy. Critical extension as an integral and political training device

The paper reflects on the scope of an initiative that aims at linking universities with the territory and the (integral) training of professionals. The initiative in question is the project "Desconstru-YENDO: Educación Sexual Integral: Fortaleciendo vínculos en el territorio entre los CAPS y las Escuelas" -Universidad, Cultura y Territorio - Convocatoria 2021 of the Secretaría de Políticas Universitarias (Ministerio de Educación- Argentina). In recent years, the Argentine University system has given an important impulse and support to strategies that articulate the academic design with the social commitment of the university. In this regard, it is worth mentioning the definitions of the National Interuniversity Council through various Plenary Agreements; as well as different initiatives arising from the Executive and Legislative Power, including the ministerial resolution that invites universities, within the framework of their autonomy "...to incorporate in the curricular designs and curricula of undergraduate and graduate careers, educational social practices or as the institution calls them, whose compliance will be a necessary requirement for obtaining the university degree" (Resolution ME and D. 233, 2018). Throughout the paper we will reflect on the notion of critical extension as a political practice and some assumptions that should be addressed and present in these strategies of professional training and articulation of the university with the territory. We hope to contribute to the discussion about the forms that "the political" assumes, the spaces and practices that constitute it and its relationship with the production of knowledge in the university environment.

Experience of an interdisciplinary and interinstitutional survey of extensive agroecological production in General Pueyrredon (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

Discussions on the social and environmental risks associated with the prevailing agricultural production model have been at the forefront of the Argentine public agenda for more than two decades. In this context, in recent years -especially since the COVID-19 pandemic- part of the public policy decisions have been oriented towards the promotion of agroecology as an alternative production model. However, the scarcity of updated information hinders public policy decisions. In 2020, an interdisciplinary and interinstitutional team (INTA - CONICET/UNMdP) started the process of geo-referencing and characterization of agroecological fruit and vegetable experiences in General Pueyrredon and surrounding areas. On this basis, the team expanded to explore those extensive productions with agroecological bases. The paper presents the mapping experience, focusing on the process of design and implementation of the methodological strategy, and on the challenges and difficulties encountered. For this purpose, an exploratory qualitative-quantitative research is proposed. Semi-structured interviews were carried out with extensive agroecological producers using the "snowball" strategy to form the sample. This work approaches agroecology from a holistic and systemic perspective. Among the main results is that, in comparison with the fruit and vegetable sector, agroecology in extensive production is still incipient. The scale of production, marketing channels and technical support are highlighted as limitations, while the strengths are linked to the interest of consumers in obtaining "healthy" food, local regulatory frameworks and the search to reduce costs associated with sustainable technological proposals. It is planned to extend the study area to other districts of southeastern Buenos Aires in order to provide elements for the strategic planning of the territory.

Design thinking and the entrepreneurship of secondary school students in Peru, case: Guillermo e Billinghurst Educational Institution

Through this study, we sought to determine whether design thinking significantly influences the generation of entrepreneurship of students in the fifth year of high school at the Guillermo E Billinghurst Educational Institution, Barranca - 2022. The sample consisted of 147 students, who answered a Likert scale survey with 18 items on design thinking, and 18 items on entrepreneurship. In addition, the research approach is quantitative, correlational and non-experimental - cross-sectional design. When applying Speraman’s Rho statistic, an asymptotic significance (p=0) lower than the margin of error (p= 5%) is obtained, which allows affirming that design thinking significantly influences the generation of entrepreneurship of the students of the fifth year of high school of the Guillermo E Billinghurst Educational Institution, Barranca - 2022. Resulting in a positive and moderate correlation Spearman’s Rho of 0.584. It is concluded that, in the educational institution studied many times it is possible to collect effective information, almost all problems are analyzed and defined, the ideation process is frequently used, the prototyping methodology is applied, and critical evaluations are made periodically; therefore, students perceive almost all the needs that can be met with the development of a venture, they acquire only certain knowledge to undertake, they almost always demonstrate business skills, develop positive values and attitudes, and analyze the environment frequently in order to adapt to the market.

Emergence and development of ethno and cross-cultural perspectives on mental health/illness in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina in the second half of the 20th century

In this research we address the emergence of ethno- and transcultural perspectives in mental health research in Latin America since the second half of the 20th century, taking as axes of analysis the developments of ethnopsychology of Rogelio Díaz-Guerrero in Mexico and the transcultural psychiatry of Álvaro Rubim de Pinho in Brazil and Fernando Pages Larraya in Argentina. The purpose of the work will be to explore and understand the emergence, development, permanence and contradictions of these perspectives, paying attention to the cognitive, social and institutional aspects that conditioned their development (context of production of the works, the epistemic communities that sustained them and the theoretical-methodological contents they produced). The research has a descriptive-interpretative exploratory character, in a qualitative design, from the perspective of Critical Discourse Analysis. The approach focuses on archival work, characterization and documentary analysis of the significant works of these authors and their research groups, according to the dimensions described. The advances produced so far allow us to see that these works, which are usually recognized as non-dogmatic, have in common several concerns that motivate the study of the relationship between culture and mental health-illness in reaction to the dominant ethnocentrism. These concerns range from the difficulties posed by the methodology of psychiatric diagnosis and specific problems in the clinic -especially in public services- that challenge the psychiatrist, to slippages related to certain national identity constructions and essentialisms posed by some of their hypotheses when incorporating the dimension of culture. This allows us to identify the ways in which the forms of knowledge produced affect, transform and invent statements about human experiences and how this knowledge is socially integrated.

Conservation biology, ecocentrism and utilitarianism

Conservation biology emerged in the 1980s as a purportedly interdisciplinary field of study (Callicott and Frodeman, 2009, Van Dyke and Lamb, 2020). In its origins, the objective was to provide principles and tools to preserve biodiversity (Soule, 1985). Among these principles, a series of normative postulates are proposed that would rest on the ecocentric ethics of deep ecology (Naess, 1973), which seeks to displace humans from the center of moral consideration and rather treat all ecological ensembles and their members equally. Conservationism has shown an important development from those pioneering works to the present day. In fact, in recent times, approaches have emerged that attempt to dissociate themselves from traditional conservation biology, to the point of proposing another field: conservation science (Kareiva and Marvier, 2012). This shift implies a conservation that centrally considers the utilitarian value of biodiversity and ecosystem services for humans. The aim of this paper is to analyze comparatively these two major moments of conservationism, inquiring to what extent they recover the ecocentric ideals that were originally held. By means of a discursive analysis, we will try to show that both traditional conservation biology and the new conservation sciences do not fully recover that ecocentric view since, to different extents, they present important utilitarian "marks" in their discourses. Finally, we will discuss some implications of this for conservationism.

Energy transition and “green” extractivism around the lithium industry. New socio-territorial conflict in northern Argentina

Consolidating the energy transition towards the decarbonization of the global economy demands the growing consumption of minerals and strategic resources. The advance of extractive projects on lithium deposits in the last decade in Latin America and in Argentina in particular implied that local sources of conflict emerged in the region that brought together different collective actors in opposition and resistance. The present work analyzes, based on a qualitative case study strategy on the "Mesa de Comunidades de la Cuenca de Guayatayoc y Salinas Grandes", the cycle of social conflict that emerged in the Argentine northwest as a result of the exploitation of lithium. This research seeks to respond to the main social actors involved and to identify the forms of struggle they adopt, with their demands and main programs. In this way, the work is organized as follows. In the first place, the concept of socio-territorial movement is reviewed, as a specificity of certain social movements in order to account for the demands, practices and programs of the collective subjects that intervene. The second section describes the rise of the lithium industry in Argentina and the emergence of socio-territorial movements in opposition to the advance of the extractive export model. The third section analyzes, in particular, the case of the Mesa de Comunidades de la Cuenca de Guayatayoc y Salinas Grandes in northwestern Argentina as the main socio-territorial movement, its demands and programs. It is concluded that the emergence of communities as a socio-territorial movement transcends the dispute around lithium as a strategic resource for the energy transition, encompassing a broader dispute for the construction of an alternative territoriality of change based on self-determination.

Classifications of knowledge: actors, disciplines and global traditions

From the philosophical point of view in its Western-European tradition, classifications and hierarchies of knowledge have existed since antiquity (such as that established between opinion and knowledge), and they continue to operate, often implicitly, both in scientific practice and in scientific reflection. One consequence is the development of alternative conceptions of inter- and transdisciplinarity, in which stakeholders play a more or less central role, or even none at all. This paper seeks to contribute to the reflection on the classifications of knowledge. To this end, I first explore the conception of inter- and transdisciplinarity in two papers pertaining to current thinking on transdisciplinary research in Germany. Secondly, I explore part of the debate on the relationship between philosophy as a discipline and the sciences. In the latter case, it is a distinctive feature of philosophy to be closely connected to the knowledge mobilized by actors and speakers in their basic interactions. My analysis aims at clarifying the distinction between (a) the knowledge of these actors, (b) the knowledge that philosophy takes as its point of reference (according to Habermas' conception) and (c) the knowledge produced by scientific disciplinary methods. To conclude the paper, and given that the analysis takes place from a perspective internal to the German philosophical and research tradition, I will explore the idea that disciplinary boundaries are the result of a historical development and do not correspond to theoretical boundaries or boundaries related to the particular object of knowledge of the disciplines, in this case from a critical and postcolonial perspective and explore the consequences of accepting this conception for the classifications and hierarchies of knowledge.

Construction, expression and group work. Establishing interdisciplinary links

The Universidad Nacional de La Plata and the Hospital Zonal de Rehabilitación El Dique signed a specific agreement as a framework for the realization of two interdisciplinary devices in charge of the Cátedra Libre Musicoterapia. The human rights approach -as a starting point to understand the user as a "subject of rights" and not as a "beneficiary", an integral notion of health and the collective elaboration based on potentialities, constituted the central axes of the task.

The effects of "hospitalism" and chronicity were taken into account, that is, the suffering of the subject during his prolonged stay in the institution as a generator of de-subjectivizing effects that impact on the health condition and on the construction of social bonds. The experiences, of voluntary participation, were carried out in two different wards. In Pavilion No. 2, people in different stages of rehabilitation participated in the space where they worked on the relationship between rhythm and movement with a view to discharge. In the Canutti Pavilion, the open framing device allowed the accessible construction of pvc sikus and the assembly of a musical ensemble. The workshops provided a space for voluntary co-construction, enabled a way of doing with others, where individual interest and the consolidation of social ties were re-signified. The activity became a meaningful occupation incorporated into the usual routine. At the end of the workshops, the participants expressed the desire for the permanence of each device. This made it possible to visualize the identification and commitment with the space. The resignification of social ties within the framework of a group modality provided a new daily routine. We highlight the importance of the work taking a position of "subject of rights" and favoring an integral and interdisciplinary approach.

Interdisciplinarity in the design of assessment instruments: the Ecological Battery for the assessment of cognitive and linguistic functions

In recent decades, there has been increasing criticism regarding the predominance of an experimental environment in cognitive and linguistic performance assessment methods, especially in the child population, given that there is ample evidence that the task environment determines the possibilities of resolution and cognition, which implies that the subjects under assessment are not considered in their cognitive integrity (Stromswold, 1996; Silva et al., 2014). The ecological paradigm, on the other hand, promotes the development of assessment environments that seek that the assessed subjects recreate the conditions demanded by cognition in situation (Wittrock and Baker, 1998). Technological advances, especially in the area of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), have made it possible to speed up the assessment procedure, streamline the application process, control the stimulus conditions, among other characteristics. This paper presents the guidelines of an assessment instrument designed under these requirements, the Digital Ecological Battery for Cognitive and Linguistic Assessment (Silva et al., 2015), succinctly describes the preliminary results of its application in a population of children with Typical Development (TD) and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). The Battery is an assessment software comprising 13 tests (adaptations, versions and original tests) designed to measure: Working Memory (storage and functioning), Attention, General Intelligence, Narrative Performance, Establishment of Referential Relationships and Conversational Interaction Performance in children aged 5 to 14 years. Preliminary results point to the need to reconsider certain descriptions of the population, especially with regard to developmental aspects of social cognition.

Academic training in the Bachelor's Degree in Management for Urban and Regional Development, FTU-UNSL. Between Complexity and Transdiscipline

The reality of academic training in Management is a great challenge for most professors who are used to working with certainties and truths, with predictability and stability. Thinking and performing "management" is a challenge of every moment because the realities in which we move have changed and change permanently and, at the same time, institutions or people are participants in these transformations of social scenarios. To manage is an integral action, it is a work and organization process in which different views, perspectives and efforts are coordinated to advance effectively towards institutionally assumed objectives that must be adopted in a participative and democratic way. Academic training must consider this transformation in the construction of knowledge and generate a non-linear learning process typical of the dynamic events of life. Today we face uncertain and fluid times with intellectual tools from other times, from other times, when reality was observed as stable, homogeneous and determined. That is why we have to learn to differentiate and distinguish, without having to separate. In this sense, there are two pairs of concepts that are clearly distinguishable and not separable: on the one hand, the concepts of complexity and complex thinking and, on the other hand, transdisciplinary knowledge. While historically the division of the sciences and the emergence of the subject-object duality introduce a fragmentation that leads to specialization, today we propose an academic training in Management that not only seeks the crossing and interpenetration of the different disciplines, but also aims to erase the boundaries that exist between them to integrate them into a single system based on the understanding of the complexity of the present world, starting from the simplest to the most complex objects and across disciplines and beyond all disciplines.

The landscape catalog as a tool for consensus - Case of Villa de Merlo, San Luis, Argentina

The "Landscape" can be understood as a visual and cultural perception changing over time and interdisciplinary, which requires professional transversality to analyze the transformations that occur in urban and territorial scales through urban planning, to achieve a sensitive territory with quality of life. The laws of nature and human action modify its forms and geographical structures through environmental and social actions, as well as from the different views that are perceived. Landscape should not be perceived with a protectionist and static approach, it is necessary to consider the projective action for the transformation of the landscape or the creation of a new one. The impact of human action on landscapes confirms the need to rethink the way in which the territory is managed. The climate emergency and the inequalities generated by globalization call for a systematic search for global commitments supported by local actions. The landscape catalog is a methodological opportunity for a contemporary vision of the territory. In this process, the landscape begins to be identified as a central axis for a new management of the territory, as an identity manifestation that does not exclude the link between the community and the space it inhabits. In other words, to move from a static-delimiting look, from a static set of objects, with a prefixed meaning to a dynamic-ordering one, with an awareness of values that are linked to the changing needs and demands that society attributes to its landscape, through a useful tool for the implementation of landscape policies by integrating landscape objectives in territorial strategies with the connivance and active participation of all social agents involved in the territory.

The construction of the hydroelectric dam on the corda river: an interdisciplinary analysis of indigenous rights and the idea of progress in the 1940s-1950s in maranhão, Brazil

This paper, focusing on the construction of the Cachoeira Grande hydroelectric dam on the Corda River, located in the municipality of Barra do Corda, in the Legal Amazon area of Maranhão, aims to correlate the developmental interests of the 1940s-1950s with indigenous rights. The proposal, of interdisciplinary basis in terms of the use of research sources and approaches from the Humanities field, resorts to History to situate the political and economic context of Maranhão at the time of the construction and failure of the hydroelectric dam; to Law, to raise legal aspects related to the licensing of large-scale works on indigenous lands; and to Anthropology, to understand the dimension of the impact caused to the Guajajara Indians, from the Cachoeira Village, who occupied the area chosen for the energy venture. From the general analysis it was possible to arrive at the following statement, which can be broken down into a few conclusive aspects that can be further investigated: there is a tension of contradictory interests between the bases of economic development and the mechanisms guaranteeing the land rights of indigenous peoples in the 1940s-1950s. On the one hand, progress, translated as economic prosperity, dictated the pace of industrial economic policy and the country's interiorization: in Barra do Corda, the strategies of the National Agricultural Colony would be enhanced by energy production, which, in turn, would stimulate the mineral and leather trade in the region. On the other hand, the legislation and organs for protecting the indigenous peoples were complacent to integrationist ideas and tolerant to the territorial transfer of the natives whenever necessary for the development of progress. In Barra do Corda, the inhabitants of the Cachoeira village were expelled under the argument that the population was small and the occupation was occasional in order to make way for the hydroelectric dam.  The indigenous people would return to the area years later, but under the socio-cultural scourges imposed by the loss of territory.

Interdisciplinary approach to socio-environmental problems: an analysis of the micro-dumps in the city of Mar del Plata

The aim of this paper is to reflect on interdisciplinary social intervention in socio-environmental problems, particularly in the emergence of micro-dumps in the city of Mar del Plata. This problem is associated not only to consumption habits, but also to population growth, urbanization and, above all, to an inadequate management of the integral waste plan. In this sense, from a rights perspective, I propose to rethink the multiple dimensions that cross this socio-environmental problem and the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to guarantee the right to a healthy environment. For this, I developed a bibliographic review process of various investigations that refer not only to the inadequate treatment of waste by the municipality, but also to the lack of collection services, infrastructure, information and environmental education in the neighborhoods.

Post-qualitative research in education. A political-relational ontology of the sensible and the corporeal

For some years now, educational research has been carried out that overflow and transfigure disciplinary boundaries in their epistemological aspects, but fundamentally in the methodological dimension. In the context of the current doctoral research we have been carrying out, from a narrative, autobiographical and post-qualitative research proposal with a decolonial perspective, we wish to share in this conference some conceptual indications that we have managed to sketch for the methodological development of the final thesis of the Doctorate in Education (UNR). In this sense, we are interested in proposing a constellation of notions that make up the background of a political-relational ontology with which we have diagrammed certain conceptual research devices. These notions include modes of existence, new materialisms, processual agencements and becomings, transindividual coexistences and desiring practices. With this open set of ideas-force we have been able to co-create some operative lines for the elaboration of the initial fabric with which we plot the concrete actions of the research, which has been developed at the level of non-university Higher Education, more specifically at the Instituto Superior de Formación Docente N° 84 and at the Instituto del Profesorado de Arte "Adolfo Ábalos" in the city of Mar del Plata. In short, our primary desire is to share these ideas in order to open the debate and the conversation in these conferences.

The importance of interdisciplinarity for the study of pre- and post-Hispanic interaction processes in La Cueva gorge, Humahuaca, Jujuy

The presentation addresses the importance that the interdisciplinary work between Archaeology, History, Biology and Paleontology had and has for the study of interaction, mobility or circulation in the ravine of La Cueva (located in the department of Humahuaca, province of Jujuy), both in pre-Hispanic and post-Hispanic times. The possibility of working for more than a decade with a team whose researchers come from different fields, has allowed the approach of multiple social processes that took place in this ravine, but on this occasion we will focus on the study of mobility/interaction/circulation. This is an archaeological and historical space that, due to its strategic location (a transition between the ravine and the puna), has witnessed the mobility of people and objects since at least the Formative Period, passing through the Regional Development Period and the Inca Period, as well as the Colonial Period and the Wars of Independence until the present day. We are talking about a circulation that is reflected in various objects studied by archaeology (such as ceramics and lithic, fundamentally), as well as materials investigated by paleontology, such as a Jurassic mollusk fossil. To this is added the interaction of human beings whose mortal remains are currently found in archaeological sites in the ravine and which are analyzed by Biology through ancient DNA, as well as the circulation of populations from the remote and recent past, which History studies through documents and diverse cartography. The work will show the scope and value of an interdisciplinary research for the approach of archaeological and historical problems of a sector of Northwest Argentina.

Foresight as an interdisciplinary field: approaches and practices

The current world is witnessing profound changes in social, technological, environmental, economic, political, and cultural orders. In this context, the decision-making process is highly vulnerable due to the high uncertainty of the studied system, and what is at stake in the decision is very high. This situation is called post-normal science by Silvio Funtowicz and Jerome Ravetz. These changes demonstrate that the medium and long term begins to matter, and foresight studies are an essential input for the design of public policies. This paper reflects on the definition of foresight as an interdisciplinary field. The text revolves around two central issues. On the one hand, foresight as a field of intersection between future studies, public policies, and strategic planning. On the other hand, foresight as knowledge production related to the futures of various fields of application and their unavoidable dialogue of knowledge and wisdom. It starts with foresight as a discipline of the social sciences in order to analyze complex systems that allow understanding the current situation, identifying trends and future uncertainties, constructing scenarios, and analyzing their strategic implications. The paper presents some basic notions about foresight as a social production of knowledge. Then, it presents the convergence of the various and different disciplines that feed the field of knowledge. Finally, it presents a practical case of application in socio-territorial tensions in order to analyze the interactions and interrelationships between foresight and interdisciplinarity. Among the main findings, the need to have situated conceptual approaches and management technologies for the conceptualization of foresight as an interdisciplinary field is highlighted.

The peri-urban area north of Mar del Plata: urban and environmental problems from the perspective of its inhabitants

The peri-urban areas of the city of Mar del Plata exhibit urban and environmental issues that are generally derived from growth processes with little planning. Although many problems are common, perceptions show differences associated with the particular characteristics of each territory. Based on previous studies and assuming an interdisciplinary approach, this study analyzes the urban and environmental problems of the peri-urban area located north of the La Tapera stream from the perspective of the inhabitants. To do this, using a collective mapping carried out in the area as a basis, a survey was developed that investigates the state and concern regarding the following topics: public services and infrastructure; mobility and transportation; housing conditions; green spaces; social, cultural, and productive equipment; environment; security and violence. The lowest score regarding the state corresponds to green spaces, while the greatest concern is reflected in environmental aspects. However, the results obtained show differential perceptions in the neighborhoods that make up the area. For example, the score relative to the state of the set of topics reveals more critical conditions in Las Dalias, and the concern for mobility and transportation is more evident in Félix U. Camet and Parque Peña, for the environment in Las Dalias, for security in Parque Camet, and for housing conditions in Alto Camet. We hope that the preliminary analysis arising from this study will provide the basis for generating interventions that respond to the problems perceived by the community itself.

Building interdisciplinary knowledge from critical-decolonial experiences in education

The epistemological, methodological, and political shift proposed in various epistemic fields allows for the reconstruction of new discourses and knowledge committed to new re-readings around decoloniality and the need to appeal to interdisciplinary knowledge about reality.

The documentary research is based on situated experiences in research projects carried out at the secondary and tertiary education levels, from which different proposals for interdisciplinary approaches and knowledge construction emerge that start from the analysis of colonial signs and a structure of universal knowledge that strengthens the criterion of power-knowledge coloniality.

The adoption of a homogenizing and hegemonic language and system of practices takes a toll on the production and legitimization of knowledge and the institutionalization of control devices.

Constructing knowledge from complex and interdisciplinary thinking entails a repositioning and recognition of the transformative capacity of subjects as active producers of knowledge situated in the emergence of a new alternative posture and the visibility of absences, as well as in the search for a praxis oriented towards creating and building new social, political, cultural, and thinking conditions.

Revising scientific-conceptual constructions, disciplinary statutes, and objects constructed by the Social Sciences towards the possibility of building interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary proposals from a decolonial perspective that cooperates in breaking the unique, fragmented, and universal history that characterized modernity and beginning to understand that the knowledge of the past recognizes other local and multiple dimensions.

The impact of causal explanations and reader emotions on the effectiveness of rebuttal texts for communication and education

Rebuttal texts have been extensively studied. The scientific literature indicates that they are effective for science communication, and that they have the potential to improve critical understanding of science. However, their effectiveness in relation to different formats, contexts and audiences has not yet been studied. The present paper aims to present a review of different research that suggests: 1) that positive and negative emotions, depending on people's initial beliefs, can influence the effectiveness of rebuttal texts, increasing or decreasing the willingness to accept scientific information that refutes their beliefs, 2) that including causal explanations in rebuttal texts in a clear and explicit way can improve the reader's comprehension. It should also be noted that refutation texts can help students develop critical thinking skills and correct misconceptions about science. In sum, the importance of rebuttal texts as an effective tool for science communication and for improving students' critical understanding is highlighted. The importance of considering emotions and causal explanations in the effectiveness of rebuttal texts, and the need for further research on the topic to better understand their role in education is highlighted.

Science and technology in health: the creation of mRNA vaccines from the social construction of technologies

This paper aims to analyze the process of creating mRNA technology in the development of vaccines used during the COVID-19 pandemic from the perspective of the social construction of technologies. Specifically, it seeks to understand the socio-political conditions that enabled the development of a new vaccine technology by identifying the context, actors involved, and problems/solutions associated with its creation. The study was conducted through a qualitative methodology, using bibliographic analysis of primary and secondary sources. Considering that technology is an expression of social values and interests - where technological objects are developed within systems in which designers and regulators have agency - the paper suggests that the creation of mRNA vaccines can be understood as the result of tensions between four relevant actors (pharmaceutical corporations, governments, scientists, and social movements) that seem to play a key role; as a result of the tensions generated by their particular interests in the technological development process analyzed here. Finally, this article argues that the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic managed to channel a series of isolated scientific advances over time that vindicated the relevance of basic research, demonstrating that re-adopting old discoveries can still represent a milestone in global health.

Automation of cognitive processes mediated by social systems

Can social systems influence cognitive processes? This question opens up the possibility of thinking about cognition as the individual expression of the interface between physiology and society. The former, guided by genetic processes under developmental constraints, accounts for the neuronal plasticity of the Central Nervous System, which allows diversity in the other level: the social/cultural. Can this level modulate the former? And more specifically: What would be the modulatory mechanisms of capitalist and patriarchal social systems on cognitive processes? Here we propose that these mechanisms involve the automation of cognitive processes, especially in vulnerable social sectors, to the detriment of more reflective processes. Dual process theories propose that cognitive processes can be automatic (system 1) or reflective (system 2). Some of these theories propose that the latter can operate with both the original and the resulting information of the automatic process, affirming or modifying the initial result. The persistence of stereotypes, implicit access to a large volume of information, the absence of social criteria for classifying it as relevant ("post-truth"), the reproduction of institutions as instances of authority and power, and an increasingly demanding, precarious, and pathological daily and work life (chronic stress, burn-out, depression, etc.) are potential conditions that - we hypothesize - could favor a tendency towards the automation of cognitive processes, mainly among workers in general, and women in particular.

Sharing research results: meanings and feelings in the return to the hospital

During the pandemic, as part of a transdisciplinary research project, we designed and developed the project "Transitioning from the pandemic to the post-pandemic: challenges and possibilities of new scenarios in public health, from the narratives of its workers" (PISAC-COVID 19 call), aimed at understanding the care experiences of health workers in the second level of complexity in the southern conurbation. In this framework, semi-structured interviews were conducted, aimed at recovering personal narratives, mostly at a distance, through virtual communication platforms and some in-person interviews. Towards the end of 2022, we had the opportunity to approach the hospitals to share the results of the analysis of those narrated experiences, in collective activities and already in a new socio-epidemiological reality.

This paper seeks to analyze that experience of presenting results from the intersection of meanings and emotions that it generated: the recognition of workers in the conclusions enunciated as a form of validation of scientific knowledge, the dispute over the "moral/s" or lessons learned from the experience as premises for participation, transformation, or organization initiatives in the hospitals, the "catharsis" as a byproduct of the research process, the tensions between the voices recovered by the research and the voices authorized by institutional hierarchies. What does transdisciplinary research in public health on healthcare workers produce, and what can it produce? Who benefits from the knowledge produced? What specific contributions can this type of presentation experience make, compared to other instances arising from research of this kind, such as presenting results to academic peers, to officials, or in acts of tribute? What are the real possibilities for presenting results to authorities and workers? After the crisis, what time and openness do they have to listen to their own voices in a pandemic?

Contributions of feminist geography to the implementation of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE)

This presentation proposes a reflection on the dialogues between Geography and the field of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE). The exposition is divided into five sections. Initially, a brief overview is presented on the main contributions and political positions of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education Law, enacted in 2006 in Argentina, and the role that schools play in relation to it. Next, the current state of implementation of CSE in geography education is analyzed, and the results that demonstrate the incipient guarantee of this right are presented. In response to this challenge, the main contributions and theoretical-methodological perspectives of gender and sexuality geographies developed in the scientific field are described. In a fourth section, and with an eye toward one of the objectives of Comprehensive Sexuality Education, which establishes the transmission of precise, reliable, and up-to-date knowledge, examples are proposed that show the possible - but also necessary - dialogues between the scientific production of feminist geography, feminist movements, the sexual dissidence collective, and the field of Comprehensive Sexuality Education. Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of establishing bridges between these areas to contribute to the teaching of geography from a Comprehensive Sexuality Education perspective. Finally, the challenges and questions posed by these dialogues are presented with the aim of reflecting on Comprehensive Sexuality Education policies.

Teaching-learning strategy in the Administration course at the Maranhense Center College - FCMA: focus on emotional intelligence

To address the longing of the Federal Constitution of Brazil of 1988, on December 22, 2017, Brazil gains a Common National Curricular Base, articulated with other countries through World Organizations. This Base seeks to adjust education throughout the country and levels some rights and objectives such as: knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values, which, when mobilized, are fundamental to solve complex demands of daily life, full exercise of citizenship and the world of work, aiming thus at an education integrated with the whole human being, with its complexity and subjectivity. Therefore, this article seeks to emphasize the importance of emotional competence in the teaching of Administration courses at the FCMA College of Maranhense Center, in order to prepare the student for the world of work and is almost exclusively oriented to identify it as indispensable for the training of successful professionals in the management area. In a secondary vein, the teaching-learning strategies by which emotional intelligence competencies are developed lack further analytical depth, especially with regard to the complexity of higher education contexts in Brazil, since the Common National Curricular Base is specific to basic education, and the scope of the variables that the theme assumes at the theoretical and practical level. Therefore, this article unfolds in problematizing, starting from the Administration course, in FCMA, the construction and application of a teaching-learning strategy for the development of emotional competence, facing questions that are fundamental to the success of the objective: How is such competence taught and what is it used for? What teachers and strategies are used to achieve the purposes of the emotional paradigm in Administration? What capacities are observed in students equipped with subjective emotional skills? How to measure this training in attributes related to intelligibility in the curricular and evaluative plan?

Education in times of pandemic: Impact and challenges in higher education at Centro Maranhense, Brazil

This research seeks to emphasize the Brazilian educational structure in times of crisis, such as a pandemic. The Coronavirus pandemic has brought to light the situation of the Brazilian educational system and its weaknesses in the teaching-learning process. Among the various challenges faced by education, the impact of this state of calamity has resulted in school dropout rates. This has always been a focus of concern for schools at all levels of education, including higher education in Brazil, and is now being emphasized and debated in this scenario. Based on this premise, this research aims to measure dropout rates in higher education at Centro Maranhense, before and during the Coronavirus pandemic, demonstrating the results of this phenomenon in higher education. Colleges and universities have suffered various impacts and challenges in 2020 and 2021 due to various reasons, including economic issues, access to digital media, emotional issues of students and teachers, resulting in dropout rates. This consequence maximizes the fragility of students' access to higher education. Therefore, obtaining data that shows the real situation of Centro Maranhense regarding this dropout, whether due to abandonment or withdrawal from courses, is of fundamental importance to portray the reality of higher education students during and post-pandemic, as well as to demonstrate the measures taken to prevent dropout rates. The analysis of these academic data will be relevant for a period of time at the Faculdade do Centro Maranhense- FCMA, which is maintained by a private legal entity for profit, located in the Centro Maranhense region since 2017. This analysis seeks data from 2017 to 2021, making a comparison for each semester, thus demonstrating, in percentage terms, the progression of dropout rates in face-to-face higher education. The result of the research will demonstrate the effectiveness of decision-making and measures adopted to solve this problem.

Resistances and insistences: participation and mobilization in the ethical-political project and social assistance policy

The summary refers to the Social Service Final Paper which aims to analyze the processes of participation and mobilization in the Social Assistance Policy, in order to strengthen the principles of democracy, social participation, and mobilization expressed in the Ethical-Political Project (EPP) of Social Service. To achieve this objective, it is essential to articulate reflections on the historical construction of the Social Assistance Policy and the professional project. The scientific relevance of the theme lies in the possibility of provoking an in-depth dialogue on professional work, allowing the recognition of how the EPP is implemented in everyday professional life, presenting important indicators regarding the commitment
