Travel behaviour variations between urban and rural areas of Pakistan

Muhammad Adeel
This paper examines the 2007 national time use survey to report the degree to which the national travel behaviour varies between urban and rural of Pakistan and how it is shaped by the local socioeconomic and individual characteristics in these areas. At the national level, walking remains the dominant mode of daily mobility across the country. However, the daily trip rate, mode choice and travel durations vary significantly across both geographies. Urban residents are slightly...

Il posto della pratica tra Dewey e James: una lettura deweyana di Pragmatism

Roberto Frega
Partendo dalla recensione critica di John Dewey a Pragmatism di James, l'articolo esamina un aspetto cruciale di ogni filosofia autenticamente pragmatista, ovvero il modo in cui tale filosofia intende e definisce il concetto di pratica. L’autore sviluppa alcune riflessioni su come da questa lettura di James sviluppata da Dewey emergano i contorni di un’epistemologia delle pratiche di conoscenza, che costituisce uno degli aspetti più originali e meno riconosciuti del pragmatismo deweyano.

Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Entering a New Era

Paul E Oberstein, Helen Remotti, Muhammad Wasif Saif & Steven K Libutti
Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) describe a heterogeneous group of tumors with a wide range of morphologic, functional, and behavioral characteristics. These tumors are generally slow growing and behave in an indolent fashion. However, they have the potential to spread, primarily to the liver and when they do, they can be life threatening and difficult to treat with current modalities. A subset of NETs, the pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET) represent a small percentage of all pancreatic tumors...

Gli strumenti della cooperazione in rete: Dal catalogo elettronico ai sistemi della ricerca interdisciplinare

Paul Gabriele Weston
Such terms as “metadata”, “web strategies”, “interoperability” are commonly used whenever the perspectives of cultural heritage memories on the web are investigated. The risk that well-established methods of preserving and publishing the output of intellectual and artistic activities could hinder data exchange procedures as well as making the creation of multidisciplinary discovery systems required for carrying out reasearch – even in the humanities – is under assessment. The earliest projects adopted the same electronic format...

La sfida delle fonti energetiche rinnovabili nelle politiche di conservazione e valorizzazione del patrimonio culturale: una nuova frontiera dello sviluppo economico

Simona Vitelli
Obiettivo della ricerca è sviluppare una metodologia scientifica che cerchi di verificare come i processi di valutazione integrata possono supportare la costruzione di scenari alternativi negli interventi di conservazione e valorizzazione, collegati alle questioni energetiche. Ciò passa per la definizione delle “categorie di valutazione” che siano d'ausilio all'applicazione delle tecnologie-energetiche-alternative sul patrimonio con valenza culturale. Lo sforzo di questo studio, teso ad evidenziare i possibili ‘rapporti’ tra beni storici/artistici/architettonici/ambientali ed innovazione energetica, è quello di...

Pancreatic Schwannoma: A Case Report and Literature Review with Special Reference to Imaging Features

Shiji Suzuki, Satoshi Kaji, Nobusada Koike, Nobuhiko Harada, Tsuneo Hayashi, Mamoru Suzuki, Fujio Hanyu & Shinichi Ban
Context We report the imaging features of pancreatic schwannomas, a rare benign type of pancreatic tumor. Case report A 66-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with a pancreatic tumor indicated in medical examinations. Computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) revealed a solid and cystic tumor, 3 cm in diameter, within the body of the pancreas. Contrast-enhanced CT, MRI and ultrasonography showed partial enhancement in the solid component. Endoscopic retrograde...

Updates of Adjuvant Therapy in Pancreatic Cancer: Where Are We and Where Are We Going?

Jia Li, Man Yee Merl, John Chabot & Muhammad Wasif Saif
Pancreatic cancer represents the 4th leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Surgical resection remains the only potential curative approach. Current standard adjuvant therapy is gemcitabine monotherapy for 6 months. This year several trials investigated other combinations with or without molecular target agents, with or without concurrent radiation attempting to optimize adjuvant therapy. Several abstracts presented at the 2010 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting are highlighted here and will be...

Clinica del corporeo ovvero psicopatologia della contemporaneità

Alessandra D'Agostino & Mario Rossi Monti
Abstract Il corpo che oggi la cultura, la psicopatologia, la vita quotidiana mostra è un corpo che ha perso il senso profondo dell’intimità con il sé per ridursi a personaggio in scena alla ricerca di autore, superficie dove inscrivere dinamiche identitarie profonde, campo di battaglia di vicende psichiche tutte proiettate fuori, sulla pelle. Viviamo infatti in una società che, come evidenzia Bauman (2011), sembra aver eliminato il confine tra pubblico da privato, reso l’esposizione pubblica...

Alta velocità, nuova contiguità urbana temporale e nascita di sistemi macrofunzionali connessi

Romano Fistola
L’articolo propone una riflessione sulla possibile nascita di nuovi sistemi funzionali urbani creati dalla attivazione delle linee TAV fra grandi città italiane. Attraverso il richiamo dell’interpretazione sistemica della città si propone una tassonomia delle possibili relazioni che potrebbero instaurarsi fra i sistemi urbani connessi ed in particolare fra i poli di Roma e Napoli che originano una nuova “Joint city”: RoNa. Infine si analizza la possibilità della creazione di attività urbane “ponte” in grado di...

Green cities for a better future? – A case study from an alpine region: the Town of Trento

Maria Giulia Cantiani, Alessandro Betta, Isabella De Meo, Federica Maino, Alessandro Paletto & Sara Tamanini
In a world where, by 2050, 70% of the population will be living in cities, a “New Urban Agenda” is considered crucial in order to form more sustainable, inclusive and resilient cities. This means cities which are liveable both from the natural and human-environment points of view and where citizens are involved in the realization and management of an attractive urban environment of high quality. Given the process of urbanization occurring in many towns of...

Diachronic analysis of the settlement structure in areas of hydraulic hazard: the case study of the municipality of L’Aquila

Francesco Zullo
The themes of risk mitigation regardless of its nature, together with that of increased urban resilience and adaptation to climate change, now define crucial issues in the political agendas of public administrations. While on the one hand the extreme fragility of the Italian territory represents the invariant aspect of the problem, however on the other hand, the lack of an integrated and organic approach to the theme has sharpened over time the effects on the...

Autologous Islet Transplantation to Improve Glycemic Control Following Extended Pancreatectomy: Indications and Outcome

Michele Maria Carvello, Riccardo Ariotti, Rita Nano, Paola Maffi, Marco Braga, Carlo Staudacher, Cristina Gilardini, Lorenzo Piemonti & Gianpaolo Balzano
Context Autologous islet transplantation is performed to improve glycemic control after extended pancreatectomy. In such cases, islet cells are isolated from non-neoplastic pancreatic parenchyma (resected for technical reason) and then re-infused. Methods From November 2008 to present, 31 patients (out of 36 candidates) underwent autologous islet transplantation. Indications for autologous islet transplantation were: completion pancreatectomy (CP) for fistula after pancreaticoduodenectomy (13 patients, Group A); CP as an alternative to high-risk anastomosis during pancreaticoduodenectomy (14 patients,...

Secondary evolution of galaxies investigated by N-body simulations

Giuseppina Coppola
In the ΛCDM cosmology, merging is one of the most important physical processes that drives the formation and evolution of galaxies. In the present work, we use N-body techniques to investigate some of currently open issues related to the formation and evolution of galaxies along the Hubble sequence (see Chapter 1). In particular, we address (i) the role of dissipation-less merging on the scaling relations and internal color gradients of early-type galaxies, by modeling these...
