    El Estado de Chihuahua, México hace frontera con Estados Unidos de América con quien comparte fuentes de agua y cuencas atmosféricas. Como cualquier región cuenta con situaciones particulares en cuestiones de medio ambiente. En este estudio se identificaron las publicaciones realizadas sobre temáticas de medio ambiente del Estado de Chihuahua por medio del análisis en Scimago Journal Ranking (SJR), el Atlas de la Ciencia Mexicana (ACM), el software Publish or Perish y en la Biblioteca Virtual Ambiental del Estado de Chihuahua (BVA), la cual contiene información especializada de medio ambiente del Estado de Chihuahua y que se encuentra clasificada en las temáticas de Agua, Aire, Suelo, Biodiversidad, Energía, Residuos, Salud Ambiental y Otros. Se encontró que en el país de México como en el Estado de Chihuahua el mayor interés es sobre estudios del Agua. Observando además la importancia de utilizar herramientas como la BVA, que contienen información especializada en una región para un análisis de publicaciones de un área en concreto como el Estado de Chihuahua.The State of Chihuahua, Mexico shares a border with the United States of America who shares water sources and air basins. Like any region has a particular situations in environmental issues. In this study we identified publications on environmental themes in the State of Chihuahua by analyzing in Scimago Journal Ranking (SJR), the Atlas of Mexican Science (ACM), the software Publish or Perish and the Environmental Virtual Library of Chihuahua State (BVA), which contains specialized information on environment issues of the state of Chihuahua and is classified in the themes of Water, Air, Land, Biodiversity, Energy, Waste, Environmental Health and Other. Was found in the country of Mexico and the State of Chihuahua the most interest is on Water studies. It was also noted the importance of using tools like BVA, providing specialized information on a region to an analysis of publications of a specific area as the state of Chihuahua

    Re-imagining Collectivities: The Mexican Japanese during World War II

    Abstract: The removal from the United States/Mexico borderlands of persons of Japanese descent during World War II resulted in great losses which, until now, have not been acknowledged by the Mexican or the United States government. Although their forced relocation is an event of great significance in the relations of the two countries involved in their displacement, the official narratives deny any deep impact suffered by Japanese Mexicans. However, the question of their uprooting is inextricably linked to the loss of civil rights and the Mexican government’s compliance with the United States’ requirement to neutralize internal enemies. This paper explores the experience of the Japanese Mexican community during World War II through the poetry of Martin Otsuka as well as through my literary intervention in the narrative of the Japanese diaspora. Inspection of the research and creative writing process involved in narrating the Mexican Japanese relocation throws light on the reconfiguration of identities that diasporic communities forge horizontally. My research and perspective as a Chinese Mexican writer allows me to argue that geographical displacement made possible the creation of new identities and solidarities during World War II that superseded, at times, nationalist affiliations

    Striving to overcome the economic crisis: Progress and diversification of Mexican multinationals’ export of capital

    The Institute for Economic Research (IIEc) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment (VCC), a joint initiative of the Columbia Law School and the Earth Institute at Columbia University in New York, are releasing the results of their third survey of Mexican multinationals today. The survey is part of a long-term study of the rapid global expansion of multinational enterprises (MNEs) from emerging markets. The present report focuses on data for the year 2010. Highlights In 2010, the top 20 Mexican MNEs had foreign assets of USDD 123 billion (table 1 below), foreign sales of USDD 71 billion, and employed 255,340 people abroad (see annex table 1 in annex I). The top two firms, America Movil and CEMEX, together controlled USDD 85 billion in foreign assets, accounting for nearly 70% of the assets on the list. The top four firms (including FEMSA and Grupo Mexico) jointly held USDD 104 billion, which represents almost 85% of the list’s foreign assets. Leading industries in this ranking, by numbers of MNEs, are non-metallic minerals (four companies) and food and beverages (another four companies). All but two of the 20 are firms whose shares are traded on a stock exchange. The exceptions are PEMEX, Mexico’s fully state-owned oil and gas firm, and Xignux, a diversified family-owned enterprise. The top 20 MNEs had 223 foreign affiliates (branches, subsidiaries, et al). As with their counterparts elsewhere in Latin America, Mexican MNEs show a very strong regional orientation. As annex table 2 makes clear, the top 20 overwhelmingly prefer to invest in Latin America. The next region of choice, with a substantial presence of Mexican affiliates, is North America. Europe (mainly the European Union) is a somewhat distant third. The presence of Mexican MNEs in Asia seems to be growing, if slow. In 2008, four of them had affiliates in Asia; in 2010, seven did

    Metropolitan Maquiladora Econometric Forecast Accuracy

    Get PDF
    Maquiladora in-bond manufacturing activities occupy positions of collective importance within many regional economies across Mexico. To date, empirical evidence regarding the predictability of maquiladora activities in Mexico has not been attempted. To partially fill that gap in the literature, two sets of in-bond industry econometric forecasts for metropolitan economies in Northern Mexico are analyzed. Empirical results indicate that accurate forecasts of metropolitan maquiladora variables may prove elusive.Regional Maquiladora Forecasting

    Explaining the Unexplained: A CLass-Enhanced Attentive Response (CLEAR) Approach to Understanding Deep Neural Networks

    Full text link
    In this work, we propose CLass-Enhanced Attentive Response (CLEAR): an approach to visualize and understand the decisions made by deep neural networks (DNNs) given a specific input. CLEAR facilitates the visualization of attentive regions and levels of interest of DNNs during the decision-making process. It also enables the visualization of the most dominant classes associated with these attentive regions of interest. As such, CLEAR can mitigate some of the shortcomings of heatmap-based methods associated with decision ambiguity, and allows for better insights into the decision-making process of DNNs. Quantitative and qualitative experiments across three different datasets demonstrate the efficacy of CLEAR for gaining a better understanding of the inner workings of DNNs during the decision-making process.Comment: Accepted at Computer Vision and Patter Recognition Workshop (CVPR-W) on Explainable Computer Vision, 201
