    THAT'S WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE TODAY: AN INTERNATIONAL ANALYSIS OF THE DETERMINANTS OF DISCRIMINATION

    Data from the ISSP are used to evaluate Oaxaca decompositions of the gender wage gap for a group of 38 countries. The component attributable to different 'prices' in the gender-specific wage equations is then modelled as a function of macroeconomic variables. It is established that increased development and openness lead to reductions in discrimination.

    Analysis of water erosion using GIS and remote sensing for the management of protected natural environments in the south of the province of Salamanca (Spain)

    Resumen del trabajo presentado al IV International Symposium on Gully Erosion, celebrado en la Universidad Pública de Navarra del 17 al 19 de septiembre de 2007.The soil is a natural resource that must be conserved in protected natural areas since it is one of the determinant physical supports in territorial planning because it governs its different uses. Accordingly, specific studies must be carried out aimed at estimating soil losses at individual project level and at the general level of Natural Environments in order to establish methodologies for the control and ordering of activities, above all in protected environments whose focus is on sustainable activities. The basic objective should delimit different erosive forms where best it reflects the risk of water erosion (gullies, rills) and the degree (weak, light, important, and burden) and the processes induced (slides, scarp, remontant erosion...) in addition the evolution with time.Part of the work reported in this paper was financially supported by the GCL 2005-04655/BTE and CGL 2005-01336/BTE Projects

    Pampa del Palo : an anomalous composite marine terrace on the uprising coast of Southern Peru

    Get PDF
    Quaternary sediments along the southern Peruvian coast occur as staircase terraces of coastal and shallow-marine deposits in response to continuous uplift related to the active boundary between the Nazca and South-American plates. However, near Ilo (in the same coastal stretch) the emergent Pampa del Palo terrace consists of a relatively-thick, vertical stack of shallow-marine, coastal and lagoonal deposits that indicate a rather different geodynamic behaviour. Coastal deposits are correlatable with the successive marine highstands of isotopic stages 7 (?) and 5 (substages 5e and 5c). Combining aerial photo-interpretation, geomorphological mapping, sedimentological analysis, chronostratigraphical data, and structural observations, the Pampa del Palo feature is interpreted as a faulted block that moved independently of the remaining southern Peruvian coast and, for some time between the end of Middle Pleistocene (before ca. 220 ka) and the early Late Pleistocene (ca. 120 ka), it rose more slowly or was even down-faulted relative to the rest of the southern Peruvian margin. The independent block movements ceased after substage 5e, when the Pampa del Palo "terrace" was incorporated into the regional uplift of the area. Since ca. 100 ka, measured uplift rate in the Ilo area amounted up to 160 mm/1000 y when the area has been affected by a few active, NE-SE trending faults only. (Résumé d'auteur

    Is there an isolated arrhythmogenic right atrial myocarditis?

    Get PDF
    Two cases with drug refractory ectopic atrial tachycardia are described. A map-guided partial resection of the right atrium (RA) was done after preoperative endocardial catheter mapping hadshown well-defined areas of fractionated RA potentials. Intraoperatively, there were no aneurysmal formations present as described by other authors. Histopathologic examination of the resected tissue showed atrial myocarditis in both patients. Postoperative right ventricular myocardial biopsies revealed no inflammatory tissue. A minor elevation of antibodies against echoviruses was found in one case. Postoperative electrophysiologic studies were negative. We conclude: focal RA myocarditis without concomitant ventricular myocarditis may represent one cause of drug-resistant ectopic atrial tachycardia. Map-guided surgical intervention may cure the diseas
