This article presents the primary theoretical and conceptual framework in which the elaboration of the pedagogical project for the 2010 Museology undergraduate program at the Federal University of Goiás (UFG), Brazil is based. It discusses the amplified concept of a museum, the place of Museology as a discipline of Applied Social Sciences and the specific research content within Museology. A moment of great expansion of the higher education in Brazil provided context for the creation of this programme, through a Federal Government project entitled Program to Support Restructuring and Expansion Plans of Federal Universities (REUNI) and also by the UFG’s initiative through its Faculty of Social Science and Anthropological Museum, which has become the main laboratory for the new Museology course. We present the structural concepts of this course as museum, Museology as a Applied Social Science field and other discussions which were important to choose the disciplines offered in the program, if we consider the existence of a General Museology, a Special Museology and an Applied Museology, and also the existence of a museological chain of operation based on cultural heritage safeguard and communication, in opposition to the hegemonial program structure considering preservation, research and communication. In our view, the chain of operation implies the existence of museological applied research integrating it parts (which are documentation, conservation, expography and cultural educational action), and avoid to explicitly mention research because it can be misunderstood with systematic investigation and study of collections, which are also done inside the museum, but belongs to others fields’ knowledge, external to Museology. We also try to demonstrate how the UFG’s structure of Museology Course has privileged to prepare students for applied research in Museology, avoiding overlapping contents from other knowledge fields which also make researches and interpretations of museum collections.

We investigated CH4 oxidation in the water column of Lake Kivu, a deep meromictic tropical lake with CH4-rich anoxic deep waters. Depth profiles of dissolved gases (CH4 and N2O) and a diversity of potential electron acceptors for anaerobic CH4 oxidation (NO3−, SO4 2−, Fe and Mn oxides) were determined during six field campaigns between June 2011 and August 2014. Denitrification measurements based on stable isotope labelling experiments were performed twice. In addition, we quantified aerobic and anaerobic CH4 oxidation, NO3− and SO4 2− consumption rates,with and without the presence of an inhibitor of SO4 2−-reducing bacteria activity. Aerobic CH4 production was also measured in parallel incubations with the addition of an inhibitor of aerobic CH4 oxidation. Themaximu m aerobic and anaerobic CH4 oxidation rates were estimated to be 27±2 and 16±8 μmol/L/d, respectively. We observed a difference in the relative importance of aerobic and anaerobic CH4 oxidation during the rainy and the dry season, with a greater role for aerobic oxidation during the dry season. Lower anaerobic CH4 oxidation rates were measured in presence of molybdate in half of the measurements, suggesting the occurrence of linkage between SO4 2− reduction and anaerobic CH4 oxidation. NO3− consumption and dissolved Mn production rates were never high enough to sustain themeasured anaerobic CH4 oxidation, reinforcing the idea of a coupling between SO4 2− reduction and CH4 oxidation in the anoxic waters of Lake Kivu. Finally, significant rates (up to 0.37 μmol/L/d) of pelagic CH4 production were also measured in oxygenated waters. [less ▲]

This study analysed the effects of fertilizer use on potato production in Kabatwa Sector, Nyabihu District, in Western Rwanda. Data were collected among 100 potato growers randomly selected in Kabatwa sector for the season 2014B. A well structured questionnaire was distributed in August 2014, and required information about the respondent’s identification, fertilizer use, potato production and related constraints. The paired-samples T-test was used for data analysis. The results show that fertilizers have positive effects on potato output. The results from the paired-samples t-test show that the difference between the average crop production after and the average crop production before the adoption of fertilizers in the study area (1,155 kgs) is statistically different from zero following that the corresponding p-value (labelled Sig. 2-tailed) is smaller than 0.05. Accordingly, there has been a statistically significant difference between the potato output level comparing before and after fertilizer use in the study area. It was recommended that the Government should enhance fertilizer accessibility through credit facility to farmers, facilitate access to proximity extension services and encourage farmers to group into cooperatives.

During the so-called "refugee crisis” in Europe, the presence of migrant groups in European cities has motivated very different reactions from local authorities and civil society. Taking into consideration two key aspects, the typology of destination cities and reaction of local authorities, we focus on two specific cities—Ventimiglia and Calais—because they are both situated at important points of passage on the borders between states. Also in each case, local authorities have chosen a deterrence approach in the form of a ban on food distribution to deal with immigration issues. We analyze the different ways in which local authorities of Ventimiglia and Calais have implemented bans directed at food distribution programs for migrants and the responses to the bans from local citizens’ solidarity organizations.

In the Red River delta Vietnam, farm performance is dependent on the availability of water provided by public irrigation. With a well constructed irrigation system, farmers can increase their income by cultivating three crops per year. Hence participating in irrigation system management is necessary to improve their living. The aims of this paper are to examine the contribution of farmers to irrigation control for sustainable agricultural production. By analyzing primary data which is collected from the survey of 60 farm households, we discovered that irrigation management in this delta consists of several activities such as canals dredging, damaged canals repairing, checking the flow of water in canals and water pumping. In general, farmers contribute to these activities in two ways either in cash or working days. Around 70 percent of farmers contribute money to canal dredging and repairing annually, the rest are poorer so they support by their working days. Our regression model indicates that household income, the contribution of their neighbors, and frequency of attending social events in the community are main factors which statistically significant affect on farmers’ contribution. Therefore, promoting the contribution of farmers to irrigation management is an appropriate policy that needs to be implemented. [less ▲]

When some of the parties of a multipartite entangled pure state are lost, the question arises whether the residual mixed state is also entangled, in which case the initial entangled pure state is said to be robust against particle loss. In this paper, we investigate this entanglement robustness for N-qubit pure states. We identify exhaustively all entangled states that are fragile, i.e., not robust, with respect to the loss of any single qubit of the system. We also study the entanglement robustness properties of symmetric states and put these properties in the perspective of the classification of states with respect to stochastic local operations assisted with classic communication (SLOCC classification).

The report is a part of the PhD project entitled “Methodology for the design of climate responsive houses for optimised thermal comfort in Quetta, Pakistan” being carried out at University of Liège, Belgium. The aim of the project is to improve indoor thermal comfort of free-running houses in Quetta and raise the awareness of builders about climate sensitivity. The present findings are based on the monitoring of indoor climate, survey questionnaire and the interviews of the residents living in the houses made of reinforced cement concrete (RCC) structure. We aim to provide the readers with insights and perspectives on the existing houses, their comfort performance, comfort perception and understanding of the residents and the use of mechanical methods to optimise thermal comfort in RCC houses in Quetta, Pakistan.

Alcelaphine herpesvirus 1 (AlHV-1) persists in wildebeest asymptomatically but induces malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) upon transmission to other ruminant species, including cattle. We have previously shown that MCF is a lethal disease resembling a peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL) and induced after ORF73-dependent latency establishment in CD8+ T lymphocytes. However, how AlHV-1 infection leads to CD8+ T lymphocyte proliferation and activation remains largely unknown. In this study, we investigated viral and cellular transcriptomes of bovine CD8+ T lymphocytes during MCF. Three groups of four 4-month-old calves were mock-infected or infected intranasally with 105 PFU of the virulent C500 wildtype (WT) strain or non-pathogenic ORF73-deficient (73null) AlHV-1 strain. At day 45 after infection (mock and 73null groups) or at time of MCF development (WT group), CD8+ T lymphocytes were isolated from peripheral blood to high purity before RNA extraction. Illumina Truseq stranded mRNA libraries were obtained and subjected to NextSeq500 sequencing. Transcriptomes were analysed for both viral and cellular transcripts. We took advantage of the non-pathogenic 73null strain to differentiate anti-viral effector/memory responses in CD8+ T cells from transcriptomics changes due to latent infection of these cells during MCF. While no viral transcripts could be detected in CD8+ T cells of mock or 73null-infected animals, expression of viral genes of interest in MCF-developing calves was detected including AlHV-1-specific semaphorin-like A3, undefined A4, bZIP protein A6, interleukin 4-like protein A9.5 and undefined glycoprotein A10. When analysing differential cellular gene expression (P < 10−4; change in expression of over fourfold), we observed upregulation of 151 (WT vs Mock) and 72 (WT vs 73null) genes, including Gzma, SerpinB9, Moxd1, Tox2, IL-10, and Cxcr3; and downregulation of 205 (WT vs Mock) and 271 (WT vs 73null) genes, including αv or β3 integrins. Intriguingly, while gene-set enrichment for TCR engagement was observed in CD8+ T cells from MCF-developing calves, supporting T cell activation, we also observed strong downregulation of gene transcripts normally involved in canonical TCR activation such as Cbl, Tec family tyrosine kinases Rlk, Tec, and Itk, and Syk. These data suggest unconventional TCR triggering and provide unprecedented mechanistic insights on how AlHV-1 could induce a PTCL-like disease. Future work should further determine the actual pathway(s) involved and which viral gene(s) drive T cell dysregulation. [less ▲]
