Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources. Learning may reside in non-human appliances. Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning. Ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill. Currency accurate, up-to-date knowledge is the intent of all connectivist learning activities.
Decision-making is itself a learning process. Choosing what to learn and the meaning of incoming information is seen through the lens of a shifting reality.

In fact, at the end of each map, I felt that I were prepared to respond to any question related to the theme, because i read so much about it.
With the cognitive maps we could contact with a new way to present and to learn about topics! And, for me, this is a big advantage! I think that for some topics it's possible to use other methodologies, so we can have different approaches to the themes We had some problems in the beginning of the course in the informatic room, and later problems with internet, etc It was necessary that everyone had access to a personal computer.

This process is presented as one that developed as the understanding of the research object revealed the interest in creating articulations with other domains, in order to obtain answers to questions that Language Didactics identified as its own.
The formative dimension of the discipline is addressed in its relation to teaching practice and teacher education; but the development of research allowed by the scientific blooming in the national context is also underlined. The impact of phenomena related to the advances of information technologies and to globalisation is recognised, namely the effects that resulted from the integration of Portugal as a member in the European Union. Other signs of transformation in the epistemological journey of the discipline are acknowledged, identifying interlinguistic, interdisciplinary and interprofessional frontiers that tend to fade and revealing Language Didactics as a field that opens to new spheres of action; still, there are warnings against uncontrolled openness that could lead to loss of identity.
At the end, a conceptual framework is presented, as a summary and a possible organiser of a deeper historical and epistemological characterisation of this disciplinary field. Ikea das Rendas. It took Maria da Guia 2 months to reproduce the Ikea pattern using traditional Portuguese improvised knots.

But what happens to those "lucky" few at the very top of the pyramid? Fragile Elite explores the contradictions of being an elite student through ethnographic research conducted at two top universities It uncovers the intimate psychological strains students suffer under the pressure imposed on them by parents and state, where the state acts as a parent, and the parents sometimes reinforce the state.
The book offers insights into the intergenerational tensions as work in relation to the ongoing Tropa: debate de elites. Geology and religion in Portugal. This paper addresses the relationship between geology and religion in Portugal by focusing on three case studies of naturalists who produced original research and lived in different historical periods, from the eighteenth to the twentieth century. Whereas in non-peripheral European countries religious themes and even controversies between science and religion were dealt with by scientists and discussed in scientific communities, in Portugal the absence of a debate between science and religion within scientific and intellectual circles is particularly striking.
From the historiographic point of view, in a country such as Portugal , where Roman Catholicism is part of the religious and cultural tradition, the influence of religion in all aspects of life has been either taken for granted by those less familiar with the national context or dismissed by local intellectuals, who do not see it as relevant to science. The situation is more complex than these dichotomies, rendering the study of this question particularly appealing from the historiographic point of view, geology being by its very nature a well-suited point from which to approach the theme.
We argue that there is a long tradition of independence between science and religion, agnosticism and even atheism among local elites. Especially from the eighteenth century onwards, they are usually portrayed as enlightened minds who struggled against religious and political obscurantism. Religion—or, to be more precise, the Roman Catholic Church and its institutions—was usually identified with backwardness, whereas science was seen as the path to progress; consequently men of science usually dissociated their scientific production from religious belief.

In this town they found several institutions, some of which helped the travellers materially and spiritually, such as the Third Order of Saint Francis. At the same time, this information allowed us to analyze, from a quantitative and qualitative perspective, some relevant characteristics of travellers in northern Portugal during that period. Besides the specifics of those whom the brothers assisted, this paper also evaluates the management of this activity, that of the distribution of alms, by the secular Franciscans of Braga, revealing a welfare practice that is practically unknown in current historiography.

This article deals with the process of elite adaptation in Slovenia in the period between and While negotiated settlement between the old and new elites in Slovenia contributed to high reproduction rates of Slovenian old elites , there was significant change going on within the new and old elites. By looking at their ego networks, we show that the debate on elite reproduction is overlooking an important aspect of change, i. We analyze changes in the compo Assembling Toyota in Portugal.

The aims of this study were to establish the physical and physiological attributes of elite and sub- elite Malaysian male badminton players and to determine whether these attributes discriminate elite players from sub- elite players.
Measurements and tests of basic anthropometry, explosive power, anaerobic recovery capacity, badminton-specific movement agility, maximum strength, and aerobic capacity were conducted on two occasions, separated by at least one day. There were significant differences in instantaneous lower body power estimated from vertical jump height between the elite and sub- elite groups P badminton-specific movement agility tests. Our results show that elite Malaysian male badminton players are taller, heavier, and stronger than their sub- elite counterparts. The test battery, however, did not allow us to discriminate between the elite and sub- elite players, suggesting that at the elite level tactical knowledge, technical skills, and psychological readiness could be of greater importance.
Identifying Power Elites. Specifying network boundaries is fundamental in the study of social structures of elite networks. However, traditional methods do not offer clear criteria on either size or composition of the elite , and rely on numerous ad hoc decisions. A methodological framework that is inductive, reproducible First, a comprehensive dataset of the affiliation networks of all potentially powerful sectors in Denmark was assembled.
Second, these heterogeneous affiliation networks were weighted to account for potential level of social integration. Third, a weighted Immersion Ethnography of Elites. This chapter examines an innovative form of data-gathering that brings together two of the greatest methodological challenges social scientists face: conducting classical immersion ethnography and gaining access to elites.

Skaber elite bredde? Faktisk viser nogle af de Deforestation in Portugal. Full Text Available Deforestation is not a new problem although world-wide population awareness is increasing. This issue has terrible environmental, social and economic consequences due to the over-exploitation of the natural resources and to alternative land uses which are more profitable in the short term.
The combat and mitigation of deforestation is one of the biggest challenges for the 21st Century in order to achieve the Millennium Goals and a global sustainable development at all levels of human activities. Therefore, this paper will address this concerns focusing on the causes and consequences of deforestation as well as on the actions carried out by the decision makers in order to provide solutions for this increasingly and alarming problem.
This paper will also approach the concepts of sustainability as well as the economy and management of the natural resources aiming an insight of the past deforestation in Portugal , the present situation and a sustainable perspective regarding the future. Elitism and Stochastic Dominance. Stochastic dominance has typically been used with a special emphasis on risk and inequality reduction something captured by the concavity of the utility function in the expected utility model. We claim that the applicability of the stochastic dominance approach goes far beyond risk and inequality measurement provided suitable adpations be made.
We apply in the paper the stochastic dominance approach to the measurment of elitism which may be considered the opposite of egalitarianism. While the The Sociology of Elite Education. Research on elites that is, on status groups that occupy dominant positions is characterized by the lack of connection between studies that focus on elite recruitment and those that focus on the exercise of power by elites.
As underlined by Giddens , both types of approach are important and should complement each other in the analysis of mediations between the class structure, the organizational structure and the power structure in a given society. Giddens also insists on the need for Several soil physical and chemical properties were evaluated in chestnut groves subjected to several soil management systems: chisel plow, that corresponds to the traditional tillage MT, disc harrowing GD, with rainfed seeded pasture PS, and no-tillage with spontaneous herbaceous vegetation NM.

The thesis of judicialization of health care by the elites : medication for mucopolysaccharidosis. Foram analisados os proc Anthropometric and physical performance characteristics of top- elite , elite and non- elite youth female team handball players. In order to maximise the potential for success, developing nations need to produce superior systems to identify and develop talent, which requires comprehensive and up-to-date values on elite players.
This study examined the anthropometric and physical characteristics of youth female team handball players Anthropometric profiling included sum of eight skinfolds, body mass, stature, girths, breadths and somatotype. Elite outperformed non- elite players only in throwing velocity. The findings reveal that non- elite players compare unfavourably to top- elite international European players in many anthropometric and performance characteristics, and differ in a few characteristics compared to elite European club team players.
This study is useful for emerging team handball nations in improving talent identification processes. Elite Cohesion in Political Communication.

Full Text Available The priyayi played a vital role in leading the Indonesian community during the colonial era. The same applies to Madura society. However, the pattern of priyayi power, which was underpinned by feudalism waned, being replaced by Islamic religious leaders known as kiai. During the New Order regime, kiai in Madura played a very dominant role which was not only limited to the realm of religion, but also all aspects of life ranging from social, politics, economic, to culture.
Nevertheless, with the dawn of the reformation era, economic elites have catapulted themselves to prominence, and there are growing signs that they are replacing the role which religious leaders used to play in Madura society in general and in the political domain in particular through forming shadow state as a tool used to exert control over Madura Political dynamics.
Full Text Available In a pesantren Islamic boarding school, kiai is an strategic element. Javanese kiai mainly believe that a pesantren is a small palace where he becomes the ultimate source of power and authority. Even though he lives in a rural village, he becomes a member of elite group in social, politic and economic sides in the society.
Kiai who leads big pesantren has successfully enlarged their power in term of nation so kiai could be accepted in national elite. The position of kiai is higher among all pesantren elements. The degree as an Islamic scholar is exactly a sacred degree in pesantren culture and tradition.
Without his figure, it is impossible for a pesantren to develop and survive. Kiai holds an ultimate position on educate the behavior and morality of the santri students to be qualified and compatible Muslims generation. Kiai is not only a leader but he is also the man behind the leadership itself in supporting the progress of Islamic education institution for Muslims generations.

It was not until the institution of the multiparity parliamentary system in that discussing social and political changes was possible, culminating in with new legislation on abortion, family planning, and sex education. The 's brought with it the influence of the Catholic Church. Change came in the form of progressivism among Catholics who replaced dogma with dialogue and listening. Sex education was considered as preparation for marriage, but masturbation, contraception, and prostitution were also discussed. In addition, the founder of FPA chaired the CSSE in and opened up debate on sex issues and drafted a bill to establish co-education in Portuguese schools.
The revolution of brought an end to censorship and brought forth a policy of developing family planning. Changed in the Family Code gave women greater equality. UNFPA supported teacher training in non-sexist education. With human reproduction included in the natural sciences, there was still no school sex education policy and contraception was only sometimes represented in the biology curriculum. The focus of FPA was on contraception and abortion.
Finally in the 's, the first sex education programs were developed for out-of-school youth. Even though in the 's there were leftists groups promoting sex education, it took leftist parliamentary power to get legislation on sex education in the schools adopted. The Ministry of Education however was pressured by the.
Elite Polarization and Public Opinion. Elite polarization has reshaped American politics and is an increasingly salient aspect of news coverage within the United States. As a consequence, a burgeoning body of research attempts to unravel the effects of elite polarization on the mass public.

This article presents qualitative and quantitative data about the production, consumption, and the local impacts of the activity in Portugal. The accommodation provided recreates either the homes considered typical of not too poor peasants or those reminiscent of provincial elites. The owners may be classified in four groups: provincial elites , farmers, undifferentiated, and prevaricators. Hosts are middle-class urbanites motivated by a pastoralist ideational framework, complemented by an attraction for History when accommodation is sought in manor-houses or villas.

In the article the essence of " elite good" and "regional elite goods market" concepts is defined, the classification of elite goods markets is given, also the main factors and tendencies of elite goods market development in the Ural Region is analyzed.
Specific physiological and biomechanical performance in elite , sub- elite and in non- elite male team handball players. Team handball is a dynamic sport game that is played professionally in numerous countries. However, knowledge about training and competition is based mostly on practical experience due to limited scientific studies.
Consequently, the aims of our study were to compare specific physiological and biomechanical performance in elite , sub- elite and in non- elite male team handball players. Thirty-six elite , sub- elite and non- elite male team handball players performed a game based performance test, upper-body and lower-body strength tests, m sprint test, counter movement jump test and an incremental treadmill running test. Significant differences Phandball specific oxygen uptake and higher leg strength compared to sub- elite and non- elite players.
Based on these results we recommend that training in team handball should focus on game based training methods to improve performance in specific agility, endurance and technique. Foram analisados os processos julgados entre fevere Dynamic balance in elite karateka. In karate, balance control represents a key performance determinant. With the hypothesis that high-level athletes display advanced balance abilities, the purpose of the current study was to quantitatively investigate the motor strategies adopted by elite and non- elite karateka to maintain balance control in competition.
The proposed method could be used to objectively detect talented karateka, to measure proficiency level and to assess training effectiveness. The population of Portugal showed a period of slow growth between ; however, in the s, the return of large numbers of former residents in African territories along with a reduction in emigration changed the trend so that the census showed a significant increase.
The Portuguese economy, on the other hand, is in a state of crisis which has resulted in large numbers of unemployed. The growth of the population along with these hard times has made it more difficult to reduce the rate of unemployment. It is also more difficult for those leaving school to find jobs. The better educated generations are seeking jobs in industry and in other services that Portugal will find difficult to offer in sufficient numbers in the immediate future. At present, the Portuguese economy has a large component of agricultural labor.
In any case, the means of economic and social intervention to fight unemployment have limited potential. Therefore, many of those unable to find jobs in Portugal will attempt to emigrate. Many Portuguese are already working in Germany, France, and in other Western European countries but migration today is much more difficult. In addition, these countries cannot be expected to recive many more migrant workers in the future. In fact, those better educated workers from Portugal will not be very interested in the low paying jobs which can be found more easily by foreign workers in Western Euorpe.
Many will therefore attempt to find jobs in non-European countries. There has been a recent increase of migration to Canada and the US. A renewal of interest in jobs in Brazil and other South Amerian countries is also to be expected. There may also be a future increase in the number of experts, technicians, and other qualified personnel emigrating to Portuguese speaking African countries if there is adequate security and if these countries find the way to expand economic growth.
Poverty and precarity in Portugal. This research assesses poverty levels in Portugal within a multidimensional approach, over a period from to Further, it aims at inferring a causal relationship between precarious jobs and the estimated multidimensional poverty level.

We will devote our best efforts to the success of ESO". Full Text Available This article explores the relationship between religiosity and voting decisions in Spain and Portugal. We study whether religion measured as church attendance and opinions about moral issues influences voting for the two main political parties. Results show a different relationship between religion and voting in both countries: only in Spain religious beliefs play an important role in electoral behaviour.
We claim that to account for this finding several factors need to be considered, namely the different configuration of the party systems and religious maps, the distinctive mechanisms linking religious identities with voting and, above all, the important role played by political leaders in activating religiosity within the electoral competition.

Portugal 's Petrogal eyes expansion amid continuing privatization. Portugal 's recently privatized state oil company Petrogal is about to embark on a major expansion worldwide.
That comes against the backdrop of major change in Portugal 's energy sector and the rocky road to Petrogal's partial privatization. Despite the controversy, there remain opportunities for foreign companies investing in Portugal 's energy sector. The most attractive opportunities are in Portugal 's downstream petroleum sector and in the country's continuing campaign to develop its natural gas industry. Typical of the latter is Portugal 's participation in the Trans-Maghreb gas pipeline megaproject.
The paper discusses the background to privatization, its current status, Petrogal strategy, modernization of refineries, a joint partnership with Venezuela, constraints, energy policy program, gas pipeline privatization, and concerns of the gas industry.

Also, around half of those pursuing elite education abroad have parents who have studied or worked abroad.
Hence, people pursuing Transnational citizenship: Latin Americans in Portugal. Full Text Available This article is a reflection upon the exercising of transnational citizenship as a consequence of international migration, applied to Latin Americans resident in Portugal. In order to do this we have adopted the concept of transnational citizenship, as its malleability allows us to consider the whole concept of countries of origin and destination and the influence of bilateral and international relations.
We ask how transnational citizenship is exercised in the European Union, Ibero-American and, particularly, Portuguese spaces, and whether it is affected by the economic crisis in Europe and, in particular, Portugal , by analysing the cases of Argentines, Brazilians and Uruguayans living in Portugal.

They have failed to enforce fisheries management because there are big political costs associated with such enforcement.
The dairy sector in the southwestern milk region was initially supported because the ruling elite This paper explains the differences in ruling elite support for the fisheries and dairy sectors in Uganda. Although production in Uganda has not generally been promoted in any sustained way, ruling elites have to varying degrees supported the dairy and fisheries sectors.
The paper shows Coming from the region himself, the president had a keen interest in dairy cattle. The sector was subsequently regulated because the biggest processor put pressure on the ruling elite to do so. Even when the ruling coalition is fragmented, promoting Climate index for Portugal - Methodology. According to the U. The variations in temperature - even small ones - can also have long-lasting effects on the operational results of a company. Among other, the Energy supply sector is sensitive to weather risks: a milder or harsher than usual winter leads to a decrease or increase of energy consumption.
The price of electricity on power trading facilities like Powernext is especially sensitive to odd changes in temperatures. Powernext and Meteo-France the French meteorological agency have joined expertise in order to promote the use of weather indices in term of decision making or underlying of hedging tools to energy actors, end users from any other sector of activity and specialists of the weather risk hedging.
The Powernext Weather indices are made from information collected by Meteo-France's main observation network according to the norms of international meteorology, in areas carefully selected. The gross data are submitted to a thorough review allowing the correction of abnormalities and the reconstitution of missing data. Each index is fashioned to take into account the economic activity in the various regions of the country as represented by each region's population. This demographic information represents a fair approximation of the weight of the regional economic activity.
This document presents the calculation methodology of average, minimum and maximum weather indexes with the winter and summer regression equations for the different economical regions of Portugal. Ecole et communaute au Portugal. Since Portugal has experienced some dramatic changes in educational practices at the local level. The school has been opened to the community and the community to the school.
Teacher education now includes community studies, designed to prepare teachers for an active role in this process and for the better understanding of the social background of pupils. One new practice is the publication of local newspapers or news-sheets to enhance the understanding of the community by teachers and pupils.
The development of a school garden for the cultivation of flowers and vegetables serves as another bridge between school and community. Other examples of community action are adult literacy classes, the creation of voluntary organisations for women, the running of youth clubs, the formation of co-operatives, and local projects like the purchase of an old tram-car to be converted into a library. One half-day a week was to be devoted to the integration of the school with the locality, young people's participation in society as agents of change, the linking of study and productive work, and the involvement of young people in the solution of national problems, working from a concrete knowledge of local and regional life.
However, since there has been a more conservative approach, and only in places with a strong consensus amongst teachers has the new relationship between school and community been maintained. Elite athletes and pubertal delay. Intensive physical training and participation in competitive sports during childhood and early adolescence may affect athletes' pubertal development. On the other hand, pubertal timing, early or late, may impact on an athlete selection for a particular sport.
Genetic predisposition, training load, nutritional status and psychological stress determine athletes' pubertal timing. Athletes that practice esthetic sports, especially gymnasts, are predisposed to a delay in pubertal development. The growing evidence indicates that energy deficiency, not a systemic training per se, plays a crucial role in the pathogenesis of functional hypothalamic hypogonadism in female athletes.
Metabolic and psychologic stress activate hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and suppress hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis. Female athletes who do not begin secondary sexual development by the age of 14 or menstruation by the age of 16 warrant a comprehensive evaluation and a targeted treatment. Somatic growth and sexual maturation of elite female athletes are largely sport-specific since each sport favors a particular somatotype and requires a specific training. Chronic negative energy balance resulting from a systemic physical training and inadequate energy intake may delay pubertal development in elite athletes.
Youth athletes, especially those engaged in competitive sports that emphasize prepubertal or lean appearance, are at risk of developing relative energy deficiency in sport associated with disordered eating or eating disorders. Management strategies should address the complex conditions underlying functional hypothalamic hypogonadism. The natural gas industry in Portugal. This article makes a synthesis of the evolution of the natural gas sector in Portugal since the end of the 's.
The aim of the energy policy of Portugal was the creation of a liberalized energy market capable to ensure the security of the energy supplies and to encourage the energy efficiency in order to reduce the environmental impact. The success of the introduction of natural gas in Portugal perfectly fulfills these goals. Since , the natural gas consumption has increased significantly.
The start-up of the methane terminal of Sines allows the diversification of the supply sources and contributes to the growth of the offer. The opening of the market is under development. It will allow the main consumers to select their supplier among those present on the Portuguese market. GALP company should keep its leader position and its daughter company 'Gas du Portugal ' should reach MW of power generation capacities by with the development of multi-energy services. The creation of an Iberian energy market between Spain and Portugal should speed up in leading to deep modifications in the energy sector of southern Europe.
Elite y naturaleza. Previously identified patellar tendinopathy risk factors differ between elite and sub- elite volleyball players. Patellar tendinopathy is the most common knee injury incurred in volleyball, with its prevalence in elite athletes more than three times that of their sub- elite counterparts. The purpose of this study was to determine whether patellar tendinopathy risk factors differed between elite and sub- elite male volleyball players. Nine elite and nine sub- elite male volleyball players performed a lateral stop-jump block movement. Interventions designed to reduce landing frequency and improve quadriceps extensibility are recommended to reduce patellar tendinopathy prevalence in volleyball players.

Fires in Portugal , as in the Mediterranean ecosystems, have a complex effect on vegetation regeneration due to the different responses of vegetation to the variety of fire regimes and to the complexity of landscape structures. A thorough evaluation of vegetation recovery after fire events becomes therefore crucial in land management. In , Portugal suffered a strong damage from forest fires that damaged an area of ha of forest and shrub. This year are particularly interesting because it is associated the severe drought of The aim of the present study is to identify large burnt scars in Portugal during the fire seasons and monitoring vegetation behaviour throughout the pre and the post fire periods.
The mono-parametric model developed by Gouveia et al. The increased incidence of Imported Tropical Diseases in Portugal is correlated to a recent higher standard of living, influence of media and a consequent expansion of tourism, and above all to the close relationship existing between Portugal and Africa.
Services on Demand
Finally, the impact of HIV epidemic on incidence and different clinical presentations of parasitic and other tropical pathology was also evaluated. Full Text Available Institutional arrangements to provide water services have been reshaped extensively worldwide. This paper provides a theory-informed account of the way in which water service provision has been physically and institutionally restructured in the Algarve, Portugal over the years.
Ever-expanding demands for water services by the tourism sector, along with European Union EU regulations and money, made the local people dependent on national policy for water service provision. The district level was constituted as a decentralised level of national resource governance. The case study shows the role of European policies in restructuring the spatio-temporal order in the Algarve and strengthening the influence of the national state within the region.
A consequential outcome has been that water quality, sewage treatment, and reliability of services, have significantly improved in line with European requirements. Fascist labscapes: geneticists, wheat, and the landscapes of Fascism in Italy and Portugal. This paper explores the role of scientists in the building of fascist regimes in Italy and Portugal by focusing on plant geneticists' participation in the Italian and Portuguese wheat wars for bread self-sufficiency.
The main argument is that the production of standardized organisms—the breeder's elite seeds—in laboratory spaces is deeply entangled with their circulation through extended distribution networks that allowed for their massive presence in Italian and Portuguese landscapes such as the Po Valley and the Alentejo. The narrative pays particular attention to the historical development of fascist regimes in the two countries, advancing the argument that breeders' artifacts were key components of the institutionalization of the new political regimes.
