It is easy to see how animals have been treated over the years by humans, like property, without rationality, objects. Most recently studies have showed that is not true, on contrary, the simpler way, they are able to have some sensibility, or, sensitive animals, and the last years, the law are bringing these concepts to their rules, including giving decisions in animals favor. Other countries’ Constitutions, Brazilian own rules and decisions, are going along this news, and this will be the...

Irreversible thermal cycling growth (or ratchet growth) of insensitive explosive formulations has been known for years. Traditionally it’s attributed to material texture and to anisotropic thermal expansion. Although this understanding has been accepted for a long time, we’re not aware of any model on the macroscale that connects these material properties to ratchet growth behavior. Thompson et al. [1] have observed that they get growth not just from thermal cycling, but also from a long...

One of the significant difficulties in representing the behavior of reinforced concrete structures in mathematical models is the post-cracking non-linearity. And so, reinforced concrete slabs are no exception to the rule. Still, the usual analysis models for this structural element are verified in the elastic regime when the concrete tensile strength is considered. This model is acceptable for the service limit states but not the ultimate limit state. These aspects associated with the great...

In a classroom, individual differences manifest themselves in learners at two levels: a rather quantitative level, that of learning performance, and a rather qualitative level, that of the form that learners give to their learning. The notion of learning styles is therefore based on the idea that different learners have different ways of learning. That is, what can explain their success or failure is not only a question of level of efficiency, but also the different ways in which they perceive,...

Leprosy is caused by Mycobacterium leprae, which has tropism through peripheral nerves. Although there are leprosy control programs implemented in Brazil with effective treatments and specific health policies the country was unable to stabilize epidemiological indicators and nurses are part of a collective process of this work. The objective of this work is to identify the use of Personal Protective Equipment by the professional during consultations with leprosy patients. This is a descriptive...

Multicopper oxidases are a large family of blue copper proteins which contain from one to six copper atoms per molecule. Their catalytic centre consists of three domains which involve type-1 Cu, type-2 Cu and a pair of type-3 Cu’s. They include laccases, ferroxidases, ascorbate oxidase, bilirubin oxidase, laccase like multicopper oxidases. MCOs are capable of one electron oxidizing of aromatic as well as non-aromatic compounds with a concomitant four-electron reduction of molecular oxygen to...

Objective: To evaluate adolescents’ food literacy. Methods: The estimated samples were 496 and 497 schoolchildren aged 12 and 15 years old, according to the following parameters: universes 4458 and 4524 respectively; prevalence 50%; confidence level 95% (Z=1.96); sampling error 5%; non response rate 10%, and deff=1.4. By simple random drawing, public schools where there were adolescents of the recommended index ages were included. To assess food literacy, questions that addressed access to...

Wooden pallets are the most used resources in the storage of tools in the pressing area, in which components for the automotive industry are modeled. The objective of this work was to develop a metallic rack in carbon steel SAE 1020 to store the set of cutting, drilling and folding tools. The methodology used in the execution of this project was the microstructural characterization of the SAE 1020 materials by metallography techniques, hardness, mechanical modeling and simulation, development...

The present research had as objectives: to analyze successes and mistakes committed in the resolutions of 36 students of a class of the 1st year of High School, of a Pernambuco state school in the city of Petrolina; as well as, to present suggestions for investigations/ explorations, so that teachers who teach Mathematics can contemplate Error Analysis both in the methodological alternative of research, as in teaching, in Mathematical Education. For this aim, a student diagnostic questionnaire...
