During a 12 months period November October were collected samples of atmospheric depositions open field, throughfall and stem flow in a beechwood located in the central Apennine, far from pollution sources.
The nutritional status of leaves and the fertility of the soil were also analysed. Results show only few acidic episodes, due to a long range atmospheric transport. Many cations, mainly potassium, are leached from the leaves, but their uptake by roots is very quick; the leaching occurs during the foliar growth rather than the senescence period. No stress symptoms have been observed in the leaves. During the winter months the branchlets also keep and filter the rain. The throughfall is usually less acidic than the open field depositions; whereas the stem flow carries much more acidity to the soil.
Sea salt is one of the main component of the deposition chemistry, and likely it has an impact on the ecosystem. Deposition of anthropogenic elements as nitrogen and sulphur are quite little. Nel contempo sono stati analizzzati i parametri chimici e morfologici delle foglie di faggio e lo stato nutrizionale del suolo.
Gli elementi liscivati dalle chiome soprattutto il potassio vengono prontamente recuperati dalle radici e non sono state rilevate condizioni di stress. La liscivazione degli elementi avviene nel periodo di crescita e sviluppo delle foglie, piuttosto che in quello della loro senescenza. High-resolution spectra of comets permit deriving the physical properties of the coma. In the optical range, relative production rates can be computed, and information about isotopic ratios and the origin of oxygen atoms can be obtained.
The oxygen lines were studied as well green to red line intensity ratios and widths , confirming that H2O is the main parent molecule that photodissociates to produce oxygen atoms. This suggests that this comet has a high CO2 abundance. Up to now, only for SAX J Methods: With the Italian 3. We obtain an optical light curve that shows variability consistent with a sinusoidal modulation at the known 2. Exoplanet Transits of Stellar Active Regions. We report preliminary results of a program to obtain high spectral- and temporal-resolution observations of the neutral helium triplet line at The principal objective of our program is to gain insight on the properties of active regions, analogous to solar plages, on late-type dwarfs by essentially using exoplanet transits as high spatial resolution probes of the stellar surface within the transit chord.
The nm helium line is a particularly appropriate diagnostic of magnetized areas since it is weak in the quiet photosphere of solar-type stars but appears strongly in absorption in active regions. Therefore, during an exoplanet transit over the stellar surface, variations in its absorption equivalent width can arise that are functions of the intrinsic strength of the feature in the active region and the known relative size of the exoplanet.
We will present preliminary results from our analysis of the observed variability of the strength of the He I nm line during transits.

In this perspective, a leader who is good for a laugh seems automatically a good leader.
After 17 years, it seems urgent to re-read the stretch of progress made in nursing science and identify future directions for the Italian nursing, in this period of rationalization of resources and economic crisis. The congress activities intend to deepen Italian debate within the profession on the state of the art and discipline, starting from the changing of many elements such as: healthcare setting, diffusion information technology, contents of education and especially the care needs of the population.
The conference is designed to answer to some stated aims: - to set the nursing science within the wide context of the health sciences with particular reference to Italy; - to reflect on the state of the art and culture of nursing in Italy; - to acquire theoretical and methodological elements useful to strengthen and redefine their identity as nurse practitioners; - to identify the reasons why it is urgent to choose and use a common language in nursing clinical education, training and organization; - to learn from the sharing of the care planning experience and from the knowledge of different languages acquired by Italian realities.
The conference follows the tradition of CNAI and intends to continue its contribution to the evolution of the theoretical and methodological aspects that found nursing practice in Italy. It tackles three elements of socialist history through the archives preserved at the Institute of Social History in Amsterdam: the socialist building of an International organization, the new ideas and political issues in the socialist political culture, the socialist support to European technical governance.
In this way, the paper underlines some crucial points as the relation between socialism and Nation State, and introduces the European integration question. Cultura politica di partito e cultura politica nazionale : il caso del Pci nella Prima Repubblica. Full Text Available In the paper we are explaining those aspects of the Italian Communist Party, that, thanks to the particular organized structure, contributed, in a meaningful way, to outline some characteristic features of the Italian political culture.
There are four aspects of them: the first one was represented by a strong level of ideologism that for reaction and contamination passed from its main centre of diffusion which was just the P. I to the other actors of the Italian party system, whose high level of ideologization produced models of interpretation of problems and of decisions, elaboration and planning, about not so much pragmatic plans; on the contrary, concerning rhetoric or propagandistic approaches.
A second, relevant effect to which contributed in this case not only the political communist culture, we are analyzing above all from this point of view: it was constituted by the leadership exerced by the political parties that acquired in the symbolic values of the Italians universe as regards the other components of the Political system; the consequences of this situation we are going to analyze in the paper.
A third element was the strong statalism which constituted the political culture of the country at least till the end of seventies. The fourth factor spread by the political communist culture was given by the egualitarianism. It assumed a relevant role at the organizing and structural level concerning the burocratic machinery; the values connected to it not always produced good results in efficiency, in resources optimization and productivity.
The idea of organizing a symposium on mathematical models in biology came to some colleagues, members of the Accademia dei Lincei, in order to point out the importance of mathematics not only for supplying instruments for the elaboration and the evaluation of experimental data, but also for discussing the possibility of developing mathematical formulations of biological problems. This appeared particularly appropriate for genetics, where mathematical models have been of historical importance.

The Institute has the largest and most comprehensive polar library in Italy; a polar museum with Inuit artifacts and relics of expeditions by the Duke of Abruzzi and Umberto Nobile; and it has published a quarterly journal, "Il Polo", since Given the increasing official role of Italy in both Arctic and Antarctic research, and the increasing interest of Italian institutions and individuals in the rapidly developing problems of Arctic development, governance and environmental protection, the Institute aims to play an increased role in assisting Italian polar efforts through its resources and scholarship.
The journal "Il Polo" has become bilingual and is becoming a global polar journal with survey papers by distinguished polar leaders. Beyond Restoration. Valorization of the Public. Full Text Available While protection of our collective monumental heritage is a value and an objective we pass along to future generations, at the same time it must be conceived of a commitment to making these assets available to citizens of the present time.
This means applying the disciplines of preservation and restoration and at the same time going beyond with a cultural approach that interprets the monumental asset as a fabbrica; that is, as a place of ongoing design activity: a workshop for a work in progress. This approach necessitates programs for valorization and productive investments that operate in full respect of the assets themselves while employing the innovative tools available for ensuring that the asset as a whole produces income. The growing importance in medical practice of a standardized diagnosis in cyto- and histopathology and the recent recommendations for the adoption of standardized schemes for quality control in anatomic pathology by International Committees stimulated the medical staff of the Institute of Anatomic Pathology of the University of Bologna to adopt a pertinent method.
A Committee for the quality control was appointed and two kinds of controls were set up: an External Quality Assessment review of the difficult cases by external experts, slide seminars and an Internal Quality Assessment performed by the members of the Committee on the diagnostic and laboratory routine of the Institute.
Such a survey is periodically monitored during the monthly meetings of the Committee and described in the monthly reports. The present paper illustrates the method adopted and the preliminary results obtained in order to stimulate the discussion of such a critical theme in contemporary Anatomic Pathology at a national level.
At the Istituto Nazionale Neurologico C. Besta in Milano a network architecture has been developed to connect computers and diagnostic modalities, based on Intranet technology in order to allow the hospital to have an external access through the Internet. Using a PACS Picture Archiving and Communication System system integrated to the diagnostic modalities by means of the standardized DICOM image format, the digital radiological images can be transferred, displayed and processed on special visualization workstations all around the hospital.
From the workstations the same images can be transferred in DICOM format to a teleconsulting workstation. In fact the hospital is involved in a national project for the remote connection between many Italian hospitals. The system allows to make it simpler and faster the already established daily exchange of radiological reports between the involved hospitals, especially from Istituto Nazionale Neurologico and Istituto Nazionale deiTumori. All the actions performed by the radiologist are translated by the software into "events" and replied to the remote workstation and vice-versa.
In this way the radiologists can see each others, speak together and act in real time on a common "board" of diagnostic images, each one with his own pointer. The adopted technology is evolving on a system based on a web architecture and Java applications, useful for small clinical centers not endowed with expensive information systems. These centers will be able to get consulting performances by the.

Evidently, a fair amount of issues it addresses are general to grid projects. Nevertheless, EGSO is also of benefit to the application domains, including solar physics, space weather, climate physics and astrophysics. With EGSO, researchers as well as the general public can access and combine solar data from distributed archives in an integrated virtual solar resource.
Users express queries based on various search parameters. The search possibilities of EGSO extend the search possibilities of traditional data access systems. For instance, users can formulate a query to search for simultaneous observations of a specific solar event in a given number of wavelengths. In other words, users can search for observations on the basis of events and phenomena, rather than just time and location. The software architecture consists of three collaborating components: a consumer, a broker and a provider.
The first component, the consumer, organizes the end user interaction and controls requests. As outlined in , after the installation and the set up of the first 12 nodes, the green light to proceed with the procurement and installation of the next 8 nodes can be given only after successfully passing an acceptance test based on two specific benchmark runs.

Course organized by the Istituto Superiore di Sanita.
Marciana Marina Isola d'Elba , r September Nuclear magnetic resonance is a powerful technique that can be used in a wide range of applications, such as the structural characterization of high molecular weight molecules, conformational studies on enzymes in solution, enzyme-substrate or DNA-protein interactions, monitoring of cell metabolism in vivo, and for diagnostic purposes, employing spectroscopic and imaging techniques. This course was organized in order to introduce the participants to the fundamentals of NMR spectroscopy, and offer practical advice on performing NMR experiments on cell systems, cell and tissue extracts and animal models.
The main implications regarding human experiments were also discussed. Finally the quantification of information and the interpretation of data were considered with regard to the main nuclei observed [it. BRAF-mutant melanoma: treatment approaches, resistance mechanisms, and diagnostic strategies. However, even when treated with the combination, most patients develop mechanisms of acquired resistance, and some of them do not achieve tumor regression at all, because of intrinsic resistance to therapy.
The availability of such drugs, which are effective regardless of BRAF status, has made the therapeutic approach more complex, as first-line treatment with BRAF inhibitors may not be the best choice for all BRAF-mutated patients. The aim of this paper is to review the systemic therapeutic options. New strategies to ensure good patient—physician communication when treating adolescents and young adults with cancer: the proposed model of the Milan Youth Project.
Being diagnosed with cancer at this time can have important consequences on an individual's emotional and physical development, and adolescent and young adult cancer patients have particular medical and psychosocial needs. Patient—physician communications are important in any clinical relationship, but fundamental in the oncological sphere because their quality can affect the patient—physician relationship, the therapeutic alliance, and patient compliance. A major challenge when dealing with adolescent and young adult patients lies in striking the right balance between their need and right to understand their disease, treatment, and prognosis, and the need for them to remain hopeful and to protect their emotional sensitivity.
We herein describe the activities of the Youth Project of the Istituto Nazionale Tumori in Milan, Italy in order to share a possible model of interaction with these special patients and the tactics our group has identified to help them communicate and share their thoughts. This model implies not only the involvement of a multidisciplinary team, including psychologists and spirituality experts, but also the constitution of dedicated creative activities to give patients the opportunity to express feelings they would otherwise never feel at ease putting into words.
These efforts seek the goal to minimize the potentially. Finally the quantification of information and the interpretation of data were considered with regard to the main nuclei observed. Chemical and toxicological characterization of exhaust emissions from alternative fuels for urban public transport; Caratterizzazione chimica e tossicologica delle emissioni da carburanti alternativi per il trasporto pubblico nelle aree urbane.
The chemical and toxicological characteristics of emissions from two urban bus engines were studied: a diesel engine fueled with both diesel oil and bio diesel blend and an equivalent spark-ignition one fuelled with compressed natural gas, operating in steady-state conditions. Regulated and unregulated pollutants, such as carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and nitrated derivatives, carbonyl compounds and light aromatic hydrocarbons were quantified.
The effect of the fuels under study on the size distribution of particulate matter was also evaluated. The impact of diesel-powered transport on urban air quality, and the potential benefits for human health deriving from the use of natural gas for public transport, are discussed.

In the second part, the authors present an evaluation of the costs of environmental degradation in Italy in the period , based on the methodologies adopted in a pilot study carried out by UNSO United Nations Statistical Office and the World Bank for Mexico. Verso una tutela nazionale e sovranazionale delle unioni matrimoniali e civili tra persone dello stesso sesso? Riflessioni a margine del caso Oliari e altri contro Italia. ABSTRACT: At a supranational level, there has been a progressive evolution of the concept of family, which would not seem rooted solely on the traditional concept that refers to heterosexual marriage, nor necessarily requiring the difference in sex of the engaged couple.
In Italy, the difficulties encountered in terms of legislative action at a national level, in the purpose of the definition of a legal status to the unions between persons of the same sex, have led, in recent years, many couples to turn to the European Court of Human Rights in order to obtain the recognition, within the italian legal system, of the right to marry for homosexual unions, and the right to the transcript of the marriage or registered partnership concluded abroad.
This has generated a lively and stimulating legal and jurisprudential debate. The article aims to reconstruct conceptually the problem raised by the question of "egalitarian marriage", accessible to all couples, regardless of possible gender identity of the contractors, and the resulting answers and solutions offered, in a internal and supranational level, by political and judicial bodies. Chapter Silvestre, C. The objective of the study is to develop new food packaging nanomaterials based on biopolymers PLA to be used in prepackaged foods intended for radiation.
The processing conditions were optimized, and the properties of the systems before irradiation were studied. From these studies, the following conclusions were drawn: 1 The final properties of polymer nanocomposites depend on their structure and morphology, and 2 Improved properties can be achieved only if a good dispersion and distribution are realized in the polymer nanomaterials. The generation of high fields for particle acceleration to very high energies.
Its purpose was to bring together an inter-disciplinary group of physicists to review ideas for the acceleration of particles to energies beyond those attainable in machines whose construction is underway, or is currently contemplated. These proceedings contain some of the material presented and discussed at the Workshop, comprising papers on topics such as: the free-electron-laser, the lasertron, wakefield accelerators, the laser excitation of droplet arrays, a switched-power linac, plasma beat-wave accelerators and the choice of basic parameters for linear colliders intended for the TeV energy region.
Deep brain stimulation as a functional scalpel. More than patients are still available for follow-up and therapeutical considerations. In this paper our experience is reviewed and pioneered fields are highlighted. The reported series of patients extends the use of deep brain stimulation beyond the field of Parkinson's disease to new fields such as cluster headache, disruptive behaviour, SUNCt, epilepsy and tardive dystonia. The low complication rate, the reversibility of the procedure and the available image guided surgery tools will further increase the therapeutic applications of DBS.
New therapeutical applications are expected for this functional scalpel. Image guided neuroendoscopy for third ventriculostomy. Third ventriculostomy has become an increasing popular procedure for the treatment of hydrocephalus of different aetiologies. Between october and october , 17 patients 12 females, 5 males; year-old; mean age 43 underwent image-assisted endoscopic third ventriculostomy for hydrocephalus at the Istituto Nazionale Neurologico "C. Besta" of Milano. There was no mortality and no long term morbidity.
Neuronavigation has been found useful in selecting the safest trajectory to the target avoiding any traction on the foramen of Monro related structures and allowing the necessary mobility for fine adjustments under visual and "tactile" control when choosing the safest point to perform the stoma. According to our experience neuro-endoscopy and neuronavigation seems to be complementary in reaching easy, safe and successful results in the treatment of hydrocephalus of different origins.
The fine structure of the dynamics of seismicity before earthquakes in the area of Reggio Emilia Northern Italy. This parameter is designed in such a way that a seismic quiescence produces negative anomaly of the RTL parameter in comparison to its perennial background level and an activation of seismicity initiates the growth of its value. The RTL prognostic parameter indicates that all three earthquakes are preceded by activation of the seismicity. The interval between the commencement of the activation identified by RTL parameter and the event itself was about one year for the and earthquakes, and about three months for the earthquake.

The complete C. N, is made of three main parts, each of which can also have a separate life: 1 An Analytical Catalogue which comprises the greater part of data and is the most complete; 2 A Macroseismic Atlas that shows the macroseismic aspect of the most relevant events; 3 A Macroseismic Catalogue that translates in numeric terms the Atlas. To these is added a comprehensive Bibliography subdivided into 24 chapters each of which covers one of the 24 time periods into which the catalogue has been subdivided.
The Analytical Catalogue besides giving the main parameters for each earthquake date, epicentre, hypocentral depth, MCS scale intensity, raagnitudo, each with its own reliability index gives indications also on the following sideline data: 1 epicentral location meaning by this the geographic region and the eventual indication that the epicentre is to be found on a borderline touching more geographic regions, or in the sea, or on the coast, or othermise in the external band see text; 2 with a reference to the Atlas, the event is shown as having been dealt with also mocroseismic data and it will con be found, as such, in the Atlas and in the Macroseismic Catalogue; 3 indications on the typology of the earthquake: i.
Italian and Japanese language in some japanese music scoresThe article will examine the main features of Italian musical language in some scores of the Japanese classical vocal repertoire of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The introductory part reviews the main features of the history and culture of Japanese music, particularly in the context of the Western system and its merging with the existing repertoire during the Meiji era; some particularly significant translated excerpts are presented, with some biographical information about the authors.

The study aimed to develop a Transfer of Training ToT evaluation methodology that would be both scientifically…. A new system for acquiring and processing digital signals has been developed in the last few years at the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia INGV.
The system makes extensive use of the internet communication protocol standards such as TCP and UDP which are used as the transport highway inside the Italian network, and possibly in a near future outside, to share or redirect data among processes. The Italian National Seismic Network has been working for about 18 years equipped with vertical short period seismometers and transmitting through analog lines, to the computer center in Rome. We are now concentrating our efforts on speeding the migration towards a fully digital network based on about stations equipped with either broad band or 5 seconds sensors connected to the data center partly through wired digital communication and partly through satellite digital communication.
Every layer gathers data in a simple format and provides data in a processed format, ready to be distributed towards the next layer. The lowest level acquires seismic data raw waveforms coming from the remote stations. It handshakes, checks and sends data in LAN or WAN according to a distribution list where other machines with their programs are waiting for. At the next level there are the picking procedures, or "pickers", on a per instrument basis, looking for phases.
A picker spreads phases, again through the LAN or WAN and according to a distribution list, to one or more waiting locating machines tuned to generate a seismic event. The event locating procedure itself, the higher level in this stack, can exchange information with other similar procedures.
Such a layered and distributed structure with nearby targets allows other seismic networks to join the processing and data collection of the same ongoing event, creating a virtual network larger than the original one. At present we plan to cooperate with other. Science, institutional archives and open access: an overview and a pilot survey on the Italian cancer research institutions. The Open Archive Initiative OAI refers to a movement started around the '90 s to guarantee free access to scientific information by removing the barriers to research results, especially those related to the ever increasing journal subscription prices.
This new paradigm has reshaped the scholarly communication system and is closely connected to the build up of institutional repositories IRs conceived to the benefit of scientists and research bodies as a means to keep possession of their own literary production. The IRs are high-value tools which permit authors to gain visibility by enabling rapid access to scientific material not only publications thus increasing impact citation rate and permitting a multidimensional assessment of research findings.
They were asked to respond to a questionnaire intended to collect data about institutional archives, metadata formats and posting of full-text documents. Such a repository aims at acting as a unique reference point for the biomedical information produced by the Italian research institutions. An in-depth analysis has also been performed on the collection of information material addressed to patients produced by the institutions surveyed.
The survey respondents were 6 out of 9. The results reveal the use of different practices and standard among the institutions concerning: the type of documentation collected, the software adopted, the use and format of metadata and the conditions of accessibility to the IRs. Kepler observations of Am stars. Italian research on the Antarctic atmosphere.

Solid organ transplantation: the Italian experience in the international context. The Italian experience in the organization of transplantation procedures could represent a relevant example of an internal development at a national level, combined with a strengthening of international collaborations.
These results can be attributed first to the creation of the Italian National Transplant Centre Centro Nazionale Trapianti [CNT] , and then to an ongoing European process that is leading to a greater awareness of the importance of closer collaboration between the organizations already existing and operating in the field of transplantation. This article summarizes the role and the most significant achievements of the CNT. Published by Elsevier Inc.

The tool envisaged will likely differ in several important respects from an existing international initiative Open SHA, Field et al. In particular, while "the OpenSHA collaboration model envisions scientists developing their own attenuation relationships and earthquake rupture forecasts, which they will deploy and maintain in their own systems", the main purpose of S2 project is to provide a flexible computational tool for SHA, primarily suited for the needs of DPC, which not necessarily are scientific needs. Within S2, a crucial issue is to make alternative approaches available to quantify the ground motion, with emphasis on the near field region.
The SHA architecture envisaged will allow for the use of ground motion descriptions other than those yielded by empirical attenuation equations, for instance user generated motions provided by deterministic source and wave propagation simulations. In this contribution, after a brief presentation of Project S2, we intend to illustrate some preliminary 3D scenario simulations performed in the alluvial basin of Sulmona Central Italy , as an example of the type of descriptions that can be handled in the future SHA architecture. In detail, we selected some seismogenic sources from the DISS database , believed to be responsible for a number of destructive historical earthquakes, and derive from them a family of simplified geometrical and mechanical source models spanning across a reasonable range of parameters, so that the extent of the main uncertainties can be covered.

Italy, as opposed to other European countries, lacked a local, regional and national policy for the collection and preservation of private audiovisual documents, which led, as a result, to the inaccessibility of the sources.
Italian Modernities. Grounded in meticulous historical and ethnological research, Italian Modernities deserves as wide an audience as its scholarship is deep. Monrad Professor Education in the radioactivity field: a project for the italian schools. Venoso, G. Environmental topics are today at the centre of the public attention, but people mostly does not have cultural tools for an adequate knowledge. The radioactivity, in particular, is generally misunderstood and this had negatively influence debate about the energy. To fill this gap science subjects need to be study in school with a more efficient approach.
Many efforts have spent to obtain this goal: in this framework the Envirad project was developed with the aim to make students of high schools of Campania Region south-Italy able to practice experimental method involving directly them in a real environmental physics experiment . The aim of this project, developed by the grant of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, is that the effective experimental activity is the best way to provide for an adequate scientific background. Fantuzzi, E. Personnel monitoring provides the means to measure and record the radiation doses received by individual workers.
Many employers issue dosemeters to staff even though there is no legal requirement to do so. This may be part of a quality assurance programme or as a reassurance measure. Dosemeter readings will serve to ensure compliance with legal dose limits and assure the employer that radiation exposure is as low as reasonably achievable. It offers personnel dosemeters which are based on its expertise and backed up by continual research and development. The report provides details of the dosemeters in use at IRP enable to decide which ones most suit the needs and shows IMS's organisation, customer and communications, dose reports form and administrative items.

Cultura politica di partito e cultura politica nazionale : il caso del Pci nella Prima Repubblica. Full Text Available In the paper we are explaining those aspects of the Italian Communist Party, that, thanks to the particular organized structure, contributed, in a meaningful way, to outline some characteristic features of the Italian political culture.
There are four aspects of them: the first one was represented by a strong level of ideologism that for reaction and contamination passed from its main centre of diffusion which was just the P. I to the other actors of the Italian party system, whose high level of ideologization produced models of interpretation of problems and of decisions, elaboration and planning, about not so much pragmatic plans; on the contrary, concerning rhetoric or propagandistic approaches.
A second, relevant effect to which contributed in this case not only the political communist culture, we are analyzing above all from this point of view: it was constituted by the leadership exerced by the political parties that acquired in the symbolic values of the Italians universe as regards the other components of the Political system; the consequences of this situation we are going to analyze in the paper. A third element was the strong statalism which constituted the political culture of the country at least till the end of seventies.
The fourth factor spread by the political communist culture was given by the egualitarianism. It assumed a relevant role at the organizing and structural level concerning the burocratic machinery; the values connected to it not always produced good results in efficiency, in resources optimization and productivity. Optical identifications of celestial high energy sources with the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo.
To ascertain the nature of celestial high energy sources, it is crucial to identify their optical counterparts. However, the currently available astronomical public optical databases do not provide an adequate support for a systematic high energy sources identification work. In particular, the optical limiting magnitude represents a severe limitation since the deepest flux limits reached by X-ray surveys require of course similarly deeper optical catalogs to homogeneously sample the available parameter space.
Nonetheless, dedicated spectroscopic campaigns are being carried out successfully with the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo TNG , a 4-m class telescope. To set up a winning observational campaign, the first and most important step is to define a strong science case, as it will allow for selections of good targets for observations: the key is to increase the identification efficiency while keeping down the required telescope time.
In this context, as the Principal Investigator, I will give an overview of the first spectroscopic campaign carried out at the TNG to identify Swift X-ray serendipitous sources, and I will show the valuable results achieved with only one night of observations. La leadership politica in Italia alla luce della tradizione comica nazionale.

In doing so I will consider the role of new media and social networks in fostering the use of humour in political discourse. Next I will try to find a new framework for forms of popularity in politics by adapting to the current conjuncture the definitions given by Eric Landowsky at the end of the s.
Nowadays the politician-vedette is indeed the most popular form within the show civilisation phenomenon mentioned above. I will demonstrate that some Italian versions of this figure seem inspired by a rich Italian Comedy tradition.

The Institute has the largest and most comprehensive polar library in Italy; a polar museum with Inuit artifacts and relics of expeditions by the Duke of Abruzzi and Umberto Nobile; and it has published a quarterly journal, "Il Polo", since Given the increasing official role of Italy in both Arctic and Antarctic research, and the increasing interest of Italian institutions and individuals in the rapidly developing problems of Arctic development, governance and environmental protection, the Institute aims to play an increased role in assisting Italian polar efforts through its resources and scholarship.
The journal "Il Polo" has become bilingual and is becoming a global polar journal with survey papers by distinguished polar leaders. Appraising the Early-est earthquake monitoring system for tsunami alerting at the Italian Candidate Tsunami Service Provider. The Early-est software package operates using offline-event or continuous-real-time seismic waveform data to perform trace processing and picking, and, at a regular report interval, phase association, event detection, hypocenter location, and event characterization. Early-est also provides mb, Mwp, and Mwpd magnitude estimations.
We compare the earthquake parameters automatically computed by Early-est with the same parameters listed in reference catalogs. The goal of this work is to test the accuracy and reliability of the fully automatic locations provided by Early-est. In our analysis, the epicenter location, hypocenter depth and magnitude parameters do not differ significantly from the values in the reference catalogs.
Both mb and Mwp magnitudes show differences to the reference catalogs. We thus derived correction functions in order to minimize the differences and correct biases between our values and the ones from the reference catalogs. Correction of the Mwp.

New Italian lesbian, gay and bisexual psychotherapy guidelines: A review. Although homosexuality was depathologized in the last century and the majority of mental health professionals consider it to be a normal variant of human sexuality, some psychologists and psychiatrists still have negative attitudes toward lesbian, gay and bisexual LGB clients. Sometimes they provide interventions aimed at changing sexual orientation through 'reparative' or 'conversion' therapies.
At other times their interventions are influenced by anti-gay prejudices or simply by lack of knowledge about sexual minorities. This paper argues for the need for appropriate treatment guidelines aimed at providing bias-free, respectful, and effective interventions given that Italian health associations have delayed providing them. Some of the main guidelines recently approved by the Consiglio Nazionale dell'Ordine degli Psicologi National Council of the Italian Association of Psychologists are presented. Issues addressed include differences between gender and sexual orientation, minority stress, including perceived stigma and internalized stigma, homophobic bullying, coming out, and resilience.
Respectful listening to LGB and questioning clients, affirming their identities and fostering a sense of resilience are essential requirements for all mental health professionals wishing to provide effective interventions in a society where sexual minorities are subjected to discrimination throughout their entire life cycle. The Italian energy sector. The energy sector in Italy, as in Europe and in many other areas of the world, is undergoing rapid and profound changes. The ratification of the European Single Act was intended to create a European internal market, where circulation of people, capital, goods, and services would reach the highest possible liberalization.
In , in the document The Energy Internal Market, the European Union EU commission stressed the need for creation of an internal energy market--free of obstacles--to increase security of supply, to reduce costs, and to strengthen the competitiveness of the European economic system. In , the Community Council adopted directives to implement the EU energy sector. This article describes Italy's role as part of the EU energy sector.

The Italian gas market. The first meeting of the French gas association AFG of the year was devoted to the Italian gas market. Two experts of this market were invited: A. Ferrari, general director of the Italian gas and electricity regulation authority, and D.
Dispenza, vice-general director of Eni Division Gas and Power. This conference was the occasion to compare the French and Italian gas industries. France and Italy have a border in common and also a series of common structural characteristics: the dependence with respect to foreign supplies, the position of the public company, the sensitiveness with respect to the security of supplies, to the role of storage and to the public utility.
The French and Italian decisions are inter-dependent. The liberalization taking place with an unpredictable rate, it is necessary for the gas industry to anticipate its effects. When the political, legal and regulatory decisions are enforced, the initiative comes back to the hands of the industry. In this context, the trend of the transfrontier industries becomes particularly important for the regulatory authority. Italian energy policy.

The Italian decommissioning industry. Full text: Italy's step out from nuclear activities in deeply affected an industry that, in the previous years, had managed to grow up in quality and technology levels to meet the nuclear standards. Only a few companies were able to partially retain their skills through activities abroad. The decommissioning program represents a new challenge for the Italian industry at large and will require a consistent effort to properly qualify the potential suppliers.
On the other side, a program with such implications in terms of investments and so depending from social aspects cannot be effectively implemented without a significant involvement of the local industry. Essential conditions for the success are a reliable program, as well as a careful supply management scheme, which must facilitate aggregation of skills spread among different subjects. After a brief history of the nuclear engineering education in Italy within the international and national nuclear energy scenario, the present situation, with reference to the Italian universities, is shown.
In order to maintain a nuclear culture in Italy the solution, exploited with different peculiarities in each University, is to carry out high quality research activities in reciprocal collaboration mostly within the CIRTEN inter university Consortium as well as with the Industry and research Organisations and to collaborate actively in establishing a stable network and a synergy of teaching activities in Europe in the field of Nuclear Engineering Education. The aim is to maintain at a high level and as updated as possible the Italian educational offer in nuclear engineering and also to attract the best students for the enrolment.
Italian bioclimatic architecture. This paper deals with the results of solar space heating research developed within the Finalized Energy Project of the National Research Council of Italy. The technical and economic analysis was performed on 31 buildings, of which 24 are residential, and 7 are schools, with different solar devices direct gain, Trombe walls, sunspaces, hybrid systems.
The buildings were constructed between and Funding fears spark Italian protests. Scientists are worried that the new government will reduce support for basic research. Linguistic, geographic and genetic isolation: a collaborative study of Italian populations. The animal and plant biodiversity of the Italian territory is known to be one of the richest in the Mediterranean basin and Europe as a whole, but does the genetic diversity of extant human populations show a comparable pattern?
According to a number of studies, the genetic structure of Italian populations retains the signatures of complex peopling processes which took place from the Paleolithic to modern era. Although the observed patterns highlight a remarkable degree of genetic heterogeneity, they do not, however, take into account an important source of variation. In fact, Italy is home to numerous ethnolinguistic minorities which have yet to be studied systematically. Due to their difference in geographical origin and demographic history, such groups not only signal the cultural and social diversity of our country, but they are also potential contributors to its bio-anthropological heterogeneity.
To fill this gap, research groups from four Italian Universities Bologna, Cagliari, Pisa and Roma Sapienza started a collaborative study in , which was funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research and received partial support by the Istituto Italiano di Antropologia. In this paper, we present an account of the results obtained in the course of this initiative. Four case-studies relative to linguistic minorities from the Eastern Alps, Sardinia, Apennines and Southern Italy are first described and discussed, focusing on their micro-evolutionary and anthropological implications.
Thereafter, we present the results of a systematic analysis of the relations between linguistic, geographic and genetic isolation. Integrating the data obtained in the course of the long-term study with literature and unpublished results on Italian populations, we show that a combination of linguistic and geographic factors is probably responsible for the presence of the most robust signatures of genetic isolation. Finally, we evaluate the magnitude of the diversity. Visit of the Italian President. There he emphasised the role of CERN as a transnational model for research which not only achieved great results in science but is also a powerful vehicle for progress in other fields.
Italians and Foreign Immigration. Full Text Available Opinion surveys on attitudes towards immigration are becoming more and more important, owing to the increasing role of political debate on migration issues in Western European countries.
CNR has conducted four surveys on this topic, collecting data on the evolution of Italians attitudes towards migration issues. In fact, the? The last survey took place in , when immigration was already well established in Italy. The article focuses on three main issues: the global impact of immigration on Italian society, the immigrants role in the labour market, and immigration policy. In general, the results of the last survey con? Highly educated people, teachers and students continue to be the most open and receptive groups, whereas the less favourably inclined and more worried continue to be old people, those with less education, the unemployed, housewives, and retirees.
This Act amended substantially Act No. In order to facilitate the ENEA's tasks, the new Act gives it a great degree of flexibility and administrative autonomy. The staff of ENEA will also be granted a legal status closely related to that of the industrial sector. It will also retain temporarily the previous CNEN's regulatory tasks in nuclear safety and radiation protection. NEA [fr.
This work presents the informatics platform carried out to implement the National Hydrological Operative Information System of Italy. In particular, the presentation will focus on the governing aspects of the cloud infrastructure and brokering software that make possible to sustain the hydrology data flow between heterogeneous user clients and data providers. ISPRA has deployed and governs such a system. The presentation will introduce and discuss the technological barriers for interoperability as well as social and policy ones.
The adopted solutions will be described outlining the sustainability challenges and benefits. An Xrootd Italian Federation. The Italian community in CMS has built a geographically distributed network in which all the data stored in the Italian region are available to all the users for their everyday work. The federation is currently based on Xrootd technology, and on a Redirector aimed to seamlessly connect all the sites, giving the logical view of a single entity.
A special configuration has been put in place for the Tier1, CNAF, where ad-hoc Xrootd changes have been implemented in order to protect the tape system from excessive stress, by not allowing WAN connections to access tape only files, on a file-by-file basis. In order to improve the overall performance while reading files, both in terms of bandwidth and latency, a hierarchy of xrootd redirectors has been implemented.
The solution implemented provides a dedicated Redirector where all the INFN sites are registered, without considering their status T1, T2, or T3 sites. An interesting use case were able to cover via the federation are disk-less Tier3s. The caching solution allows to operate a local storage with minimal human intervention: transfers are automatically done on a single file basis, and the cache is maintained operational by automatic removal of old files.

Botanica Applicata e Forestale. During a 12 months period November October were collected samples of atmospheric depositions open field, throughfall and stem flow in a beechwood located in the central Apennine, far from pollution sources. The nutritional status of leaves and the fertility of the soil were also analysed.
Results show only few acidic episodes, due to a long range atmospheric transport. Many cations, mainly potassium, are leached from the leaves, but their uptake by roots is very quick; the leaching occurs during the foliar growth rather than the senescence period. No stress symptoms have been observed in the leaves. During the winter months the branchlets also keep and filter the rain.
The throughfall is usually less acidic than the open field depositions; whereas the stem flow carries much more acidity to the soil. Sea salt is one of the main component of the deposition chemistry, and likely it has an impact on the ecosystem. Deposition of anthropogenic elements as nitrogen and sulphur are quite little. Nel contempo sono stati analizzzati i parametri chimici e morfologici delle foglie di faggio e lo stato nutrizionale del suolo.
Gli elementi liscivati dalle chiome soprattutto il potassio vengono prontamente recuperati dalle radici e non sono state rilevate condizioni di stress. La liscivazione degli elementi avviene nel periodo di crescita e sviluppo delle foglie, piuttosto che in quello della loro senescenza. TIB includes controlled terms descriptors translated from the Bioethics Thesaurus adopted by the Kennedy Institute of Ethics of the Georgetown University of Washington and revised according to the Italian context of study and scientific debate in the field of bioethics.
The overall amount of TIB terms consists in over headings. Methods to link thesaurus terms hierarchically, by association and by showing synonyms as recommended in ISO standards are applied with reference to descriptors drawn from TIB. Future plans to make the English version of TIB available online within European networks are also illustrated, aiming at spreading information relating to bioethics at an international level. Il Servizio Nazionale di Valutazione e le prove Invalsi. A cosa servono davvero le prove Invalsi?
Le critiche che spesso vengono mosse a queste prove sono veramente fondate? A multicenter, prospective, cross-sectional, analytic study was conducted that recruited patients diagnosed with nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding within the time frame of to Six Mexican hospital centers participated in the study.
The Rockall and PNED system scores were calculated, classifying the patients as having mild, moderate, or severe disease. The association between mortality and risk was determined through the chi-square test and relative risk RR calculation. Statistical significance was set at a Pbleeding. According to the Rockall score, 46 patients had severe disease The PNED system was more selective for classifying a case as severe, but it had a greater predictive capacity for mortality, compared with the Rockall score.
The Italian National Register of infants with congenital hypothyroidism: twenty years of surveillance and study of congenital hypothyroidism. Full Text Available Abstract All the Italian Centres in charge of screening, diagnosis, and follow-up of infants with congenital hypothyroidism participate in the Italian National Registry of affected infants, which performs the nationwide surveillance of the disease.
The early diagnosis performed by the nationwide newborn screening programme, the prompt treatment and the appropriate clinical management of the patients carried out by the Follow-up Centres, and the surveillance of the disease performed by the National Register of infants with congenital hypothyroidism are the components of an integrated approach to the disease which has been successfully established in our country.
The aim of the Register is to monitor efficiency and effectiveness of neonatal screening, to provide disease surveillance and to allow identification of possible aetiological risk factors for the disease. During the past twenty years the active and continuous collaboration between the Register and the Italian Screening and Follow up Centres for Congenital Hypothyroidism allowed to perform a standardization of screening procedures and considerable improvements in the time at starting treatment and in the dose of therapy.
Furthermore, the large amount and the high quality of information collected in the Register provided a unique opportunity for research into the disease. This because data collected in the Register are highly representative as referred to the entire Italian population with congenital hypothyroidism. The results derived from the epidemiological studies performed in these years, by using the Register database, contributed to deepen the knowledge of congenital hypothyroidism, to start identifying the most important risk factors for the disease, and to orient molecular studies aimed at identifying new genes involved in the aetiology of this condition.
It is flexible without overall plan and contains spaces Education and Italian Regional Development. In this paper, we study the connection between growth and human capital in a convergence regression for the panel of Italian regions. We include measures of average primary, secondary and tertiary education.
We find that increased education seems to contribute to growth only in the South. Decomposing total schooling into its three constituent…. Lymphogranuloma venereum: the Italian experience.
