STATIS methodology has three phases: Inter-structure, Compromise, and Intra-structure. In order to be able to carry out inference and simultaneously study several matched series of studies models were introduced for the first place, e. g. Areia et al. 2008 and Oliveira and Mexia 2007. In this poster we extend the models to the Compromise. We apply our approach to the results of local elections in Mainland Portugal. In the last few decades, many authors have studied a series of double-entry tables, thus originating the Join Analysis of Tables (ACT). We can considerer the STATIS methodology as na ACT method that uses Euclidian distances between configurations observed in k situations. The STATIS method was introduced by Hermier des Plantes (1976) and developed by several authors, in particular by Lavit (1988) to analyse data organized in series of studies. A study consiste of a matrix triplet (Xi, Dni, Dpi),i=1,…,k, being a data array and Dni and Dpi being two weight matrices for objects and variables. To obtain a geometrical representation of the studies, Escoufier (1976), developed the operators The compromise matrix M with diagonal matrices Dn and Dp being two weight matrices for objects and variables.

The management of forests in the Mediterranean basin is a complex problem, for which many political solutions have been used. In Portugal, these solutions tried to overcome the small property dimension, the elderly and/or absent owners and their relation with new functions and new approaches of forestry areas linked with changes on Common Agricultural Policy and the agriculture development paradigm. The solution must take into account the valorization of all economic activities that exist in the forest, but also the fire risk decreasing and the biodiversity preservation. This paper proposes a model that allows designing several economic scenarios, producing biodiversity and fire risk indicators, but also achieving the best compromise solution between these issues using compromise programming. The model was applied in a Forest Intervention Zone Arade-Alte/S. B. Messines, in the South of Portugal. The results show that themodel is able to provide important information by creating a complete management plan and simulating the best compromise solution among fire risk, economic result and the biodiversity indicator, providing an added background for the analysts.

Mestrada em Gestão de Recursos Humanos / JEL Classification System: F- 23 Multinational Firms and International Business e M-12 Personnel Management.; A globalização, associada à crise financeira que se abateu sobre os mercados ocidentais, levou a que a expatriação de profissionais, nomeadamente para as economias emergentes, tenha conhecido um considerável ímpeto nos últimos anos. Este tráfego global de profissionais levou à adaptação das organizações e ao desenvolvimento de novas políticas, como é o caso das políticas de mobilização e expatriação de quadros. Indissociável destes conceitos, convive o compromisso organizacional, que acompanha estes profissionais e se molda face ao posicionamento das organizações neste contexto migratório. Posto este cenário, no trabalho desenvolvido faz-se uma abordagem sobre a influência exercida pela política de expatriação sobre aquele que é o tipo e intensidade de compromisso dos colaboradores de uma dada organização. No âmbito conceptual faz-se um levantamento dos principais conceitos relacionados com o compromisso e a expatriação. Relativamente ao compromisso organizacional são descritos os modelos multidimensionais de referência sobre esta temática e a influência exercida pelas práticas de recursos humanos no compromisso dos colaboradores.

Among the many properties suggested for action-selection mechanisms, a prominent one is the ability to select compromise actions, i.e. actions that are not the best to satisfy any active goal in isolation, but rather compromise between multiple goals. This paper briefly reviews the history of compromise behaviour and presents experimental analyses of it in an attempt to determine how much compromise behaviour aids an agent. It concludes that optimal compromise behaviour has a surprisingly small benefit over non-compromise behaviour in the experiments performed, and presents some reasons why this may be true and hypothesizes cases where compromise behaviour is truly useful. In particular, it hypothesizes that a crucial factor is the level at which an action is taken (low-level actions are specific, such as ‘move left leg’; high-level actions are vague, such as ‘forage for food’). This paper hypothesizes that compromise behaviour is more beneficial for high- than low-level actions.

The low lumbar spine is deeply located in flexible segments, and has a physiologic lordosis. Therefore, burst fractures of the low lumbar spine are uncommon injuries. The treatment for such injuries may either be conservative or surgical management according to canal compromise and the neurological status. However, there are no general guidelines or consensus for the treatment of low lumbar burst fractures especially in neurologically intact cases with severe canal compromise. We report a patient with a burst fracture of the fourth lumbar vertebra, who was treated surgically but without fusion because of the neurologically intact status in spite of severe canal compromise of more than 85%. It was possible to preserve motion segments by removal of screws at one year later. We also discuss why bone fusion was not necessary with review of the relevant literature.

Alcoholism (ALC) and HIV-1 infection (HIV) each affects emotional and attentional processes and integrity of brain white matter fibers likely contributing to functional compromise. The highly prevalent ALC+HIV comorbidity may exacerbate compromise. We used diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and an emotional Stroop Match-to-Sample task in 19 ALC, 16 HIV, 15 ALC+HIV, and 15 control participants to investigate whether disruption of fiber system integrity accounts for compromised attentional and emotional processing. The task required matching a cue color to that of an emotional word with faces appearing between the color cue and the Stroop word in half of the trials. Nonmatched cue-word color pairs assessed selective attention, and face-word pairs assessed emotion. Relative to controls, DTI-based fiber tracking revealed lower inferior longitudinal fasciculus (ilf) integrity in HIV and ALC+HIV and lower uncinate fasciculus (uf) integrity in all three patient groups. Controls exhibited Stroop effects to positive face-word emotion, and greater interference was related to greater callosal, cingulum and ilf integrity. By contrast, HIV showed greater interference from negative Stroop words during color-nonmatch trials, correlating with greater uf compromise. For face trials...

With the advent of high-throughput technologies for data acquisition from different components (i.e., genes, proteins, and metabolites) of a given biological system, generation of hypotheses, and biological interpretations based on multivariate data sets become increasingly important. These technologies allow for simultaneous gathering of data from the same biological components under different perturbations, including genotypic variation and/or changes in conditions, resulting in so-called multiple data tables. Moreover, these data tables are obtained over a well-chosen time domain to capture the dynamics of the response of the biological system to the perturbation. The computational problem we address in this study is twofold: (1) derive a single data table, referred to as a compromise, which captures information common to the investigated set of multiple tables and (2) identify biological components which contribute most to the determined compromise. Here we argue that recent extensions to principle component analysis called STATIS and dual-STATIS can be used to determine the compromise on which classical techniques for data analysis, such as clustering and term over-enrichment, can be subsequently applied. In addition, we illustrate that STATIS and dual-STATIS facilitate interpretations of a publically available transcriptomics data set capturing the time-resolved response of Arabidopsis thaliana to changing light and/or temperature conditions. We demonstrate that STATIS and dual-STATIS can be used not only to identify the components of a biological system whose behavior is similarly affected due to the perturbation (e.g....

Breast cancer (BC) is currently a heterogeneous disease with variations in clinical behaviour. Classification according to subtypes has allowed progress in the individualisation of treatment. The objective of this study is to evaluate the risk of axillary node compromise in patients with BC, according to clinicopathologic subtypes. Materials and methods are a retrospective, descriptive-analytical study. All patients that had undergone surgery for invasive BC were included, with the study of sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) at Hospital Clínico de la Pontificia Universidad Católica, between May 1999 and December 2012. The results showed 632 patients fulfilled the inclusion criteria, with the median age being 55 years (range: 28–95), and 559 (88.4%) patients presented with estrogen receptor and/or progesterone receptor positive tumours. Luminal A: 246 patients (38.9%), luminal B: 243 (38.4%), luminal not otherwise specified: 70 (11.1%) triple negative (TN): 60 (9.5%) and over expression of epidermal growth factor type 2 receptor (HER2 positive): 13 (2.1%). Luminal tumours displayed a greater risk of metastasis in the SLNs, but this difference was not statistically significant (p = 0.67). TN and HER2 positive tumours presented the greatest proportion of metastatic compromise in non-sentinel lymph nodes (non-SLNs) (57.1% and 50%...

The popularity of soft tissue fillers is, in part, due to their favorable side-effect profile. However, serious complications can occur. The authors describe their extensive clinical experience with soft-tissue augmentation and the rare complication of vascular compromise, which can lead to necrosis and scarring. Over a 10-year period between January 2003 and January 2013, the authors observed a total of 12 cases of vascular compromise. Eight patients in their clinical practice showed evidence of vascular compromise out of a total of 14,355 filler injections (0.05%). In addition, four patients treated with an experimental particulate filler had vascular complications. All cases were examined for filler type, location of complication, risk factors, treatment, and outcomes. Although treatment plans differed for each patient in their series, all cases of vascular compromise resolved fully. The authors believe that an office-based protocol for both immediate and ongoing care—including a thorough individualized assessment and treatment plan for each patient—is critical to timely and effective resolution of side effects. They propose key recommendations for the prevention and management of vascular compromise to improve patient outcomes and reduce the risk of permanent complications.

Lysosomal diseases are a family of over 50 disorders caused by defects in proteins critical for normal function of the endosomal/lysosomal system and characterized by complex pathogenic cascades involving progressive dysfunction of many organ systems, most notably brain. Evidence suggests that compromise in lysosomal function is highly varied and leads to changes in multiple substrate processing and endosomal signaling, in calcium homeostasis and ER stress, and in autophagocytosis and proteasome function. Neurons are highly vulnerable and show abnormalities in perikarya, dendrites, and axons, often in ways appearing unrelated to the primary lysosomal defect. A notable example is neuroaxonal dystrophy (NAD) which is characterized by formation of focal enlargements (spheroids) containing diverse organelles and other components consistent with compromise of retrograde axonal transport. While neurons may be universally susceptible to NAD, GABAergic neurons, particularly Purkinje cells, appear most vulnerable and ataxia and related features of cerebellar dysfunction are a common outcome. As NAD is found early in disease and thus may be a contributor to Purkinje cell dysfunction and death, understanding its link to lysosomal compromise could lead to therapies designed to prevent its occurrence and thereby ameliorate cerebellar dysfunction.

Pursuing the common good in a pluralist democracy is not possible without making compromises. Yet the spirit of compromise is in short supply in contemporary American politics. The permanent campaign has made compromise more difficult to achieve, as the uncompromising mindset suitable for campaigning has come to dominate the task of governing. To begin to make compromise more feasible and the common good more attainable, we need to appreciate the distinctive value of compromise and recognize the misconceptions that stand in its way. A common mistake is to assume that compromise requires finding the common ground on which all can agree. That undermines more realistic efforts to seek classic compromises, in which each party gains by sacrificing something valuable to the other, and together they serve the common good by improving upon the status quo. Institutional reforms are desirable, but they, too, cannot get off the ground without the support of leaders and citizens who learn how and when to adopt a compromising mindset.

Introduction: Le cancer colorectal (CCR) demeure un véritable fardeau de santé publique au Canada. Malgré les énormes avancés scientifiques, l’étiologie du CCR n’est pas encore clairement définie. La prévention du CCR nécessite l’identification de nouveaux facteurs de risque. Durant ces dernières années, des études épidémiologiques ont rapporté l’association entre la santé buccodentaire et le cancer colorectal. Cependant, aucune étude n’a été conçue spécifiquement pour vérifier cette association. Objectifs : L’objectif principal de l’étude était de tester la faisabilité d’une grande étude épidémiologique ultérieure, conçue pour vérifier l’association entre la santé buccodentaire compromise et le risque de CCR. Les objectifs secondaires étaient de standardiser les procédures de l’étude, d’évaluer le taux de participation et le succès des approches proposées pour le recrutement, d’évaluer la faisabilité et la validité des méthodes de la collecte des données sur la santé buccodentaire et de produire des données préliminaires concernant l’association entre la santé buccodentaire compromise et le risque de CCR.

Recent advances in electronic and computer technologies lead to wide-spread deployment of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). WSNs have wide range applications, including military sensing and tracking, environment monitoring, smart environments, etc. Many WSNs have mission-critical tasks, such as military applications. Thus, the security issues in WSNs are kept in the foreground among research areas. Compared with other wireless networks, such as ad hoc, and cellular networks, security in WSNs is more complicated due to the constrained capabilities of sensor nodes and the properties of the deployment, such as large scale, hostile environment, etc. Security issues mainly come from attacks. In general, the attacks in WSNs can be classified as external attacks and internal attacks. In an external attack, the attacking node is not an authorized participant of the sensor network. Cryptography and other security methods can prevent some of external attacks. However, node compromise, the major and unique problem that leads to internal attacks, will eliminate all the efforts to prevent attacks. Knowing the probability of node compromise will help systems to detect and defend against it. Although there are some approaches that can be used to detect and defend against node compromise...

The compromise effect has received much research attention recently. Much research has been conducted to find out the factors which could weaken or strengthen the compromise effect. So far the research effort and findings could be primarily concluded into two categories - consumer characteristics and product characteristics related factors. While there has been limited research on the effects of task influences. We argue that task factors may significantly moderate the compromise effect in consumer choices. Specifically we hypothesise the influence of two task factors, task focus and task definition on compromise effect. The experimental design to test hypotheses was also proposed. Results will be available in October 2009.; Junsong Chen, Sally Rao Hill

To date, the most developed models of compromise in situations of value conflict come out of the bargaining theory or rational choice theory literature. While useful in compromises over more straightforward preferences and interests, these models are shown to be seriously limited when applied to decisions involving moral commitments and moral compromise, especially among firm moral believers. A series of arguments is offered to motivate compromise over moral commitments, and these arguments attempt to take seriously the experience of the firm believer who is not moved by the straightforward maximizing arguments offered by bargaining theory. Two types of compromise are defended: separation compromises and direct compromises. The first defends indirect forms of compromise or assent to compromise where the damage done to firm moral beliefs is minimized through varying degrees of psychological distancing. Separation compromises include the use of arbiters, reliance on procedural solutions to conflict, separation between private and public or professional roles, withholding of intent, and symbolic gestures of protest or dissent. These indirect compromises, while often the only way of protecting firm beliefs and avoiding protracted conflict by assenting to compromise...

How much room should a secular democracy ensure for religious and ethnic subgroups - and when it does so, is this a matter of normative principle or instead a compromise of principles? A prime context for this question arises with conflicts between women's equality advanced by national constitutions and international human rights, on the one hand, and state deference to traditional cultural and religious norms, on the other. Informed by Carol Weisbrod's scholarship, this essay argues that accommodations for minority groups by liberal democracies do not require a compromise when convergence between values can be achieved. When convergence cannot be achieved, compromise is not always wrong and can on occasion be justified to pursue social stability and to express competing principles embraced within the liberal democracy, but compromise cannot be justified if it involves capitulation to threats. Neither compromise nor convergence can resolve deep differences over whether the group or the individual should be the focus for legal protection or whether rights, duties, or compassion should be the organizing basis for law. Governance devices, including decentralization in the form of federalism and private ordering through corporations, fraternal groups...

Studies of adaptive mechanisms to hypoxia led to the discovery of the transcription factor called hypoxia inducible factor (HIF). HIF is a ubiquitously expressed, heterodimeric transcription factor that regulates a cassette of genes that can provide compensation for hypoxia, metabolic compromise, and oxidative stress including erythropoietin, vascular endothelial growth factor, or glycolytic enzymes. Diseases associated with oxygen deprivation and consequent metabolic compromise such as stroke or Alzheimer's disease may result from inadequate engagement of adaptive signaling pathways that culminate in HIF activation. The discovery that HIF stability and activation are governed by a family of dioxygenases called HIF prolyl 4 hydroxylases (PHDs) identified a new target to augment the transcriptional activity of HIF and thus the adaptive machinery that governs neuroprotection. PHDs lose activity when cells are deprived of oxygen, iron or 2-oxoglutarate. Inhibition of PHD activity triggers the cellular homeostatic response to oxygen and glucose deprivation by stabilizing HIF and other proteins. Herein, we discuss the possible role of PHDs in regulation of both HIF-dependent and -independent cell survival pathways in the nervous system with particular attention to the co-substrate requirements for these enzymes. The emergence of neuroprotective therapies that modulate genes capable of combating metabolic compromise is an affirmation of elegant studies done by John Blass and colleagues over the past five decades implicating altered metabolism in neurodegeneration.

He acknowledges the hospitality of its Instituto de Matemática Aplicada and the nancial support through a sabbatical fellowship from the Spanish Ministry of Education and Culture.; We introduce a compromise value for non-transferable utility games: the Chi-compromise value. It is closely related to the Compromise value introduced by Borm, Keiding, McLean, Oortwijn, and Tijs (1992), to the MC-value introduced by Otten, Borm, Peleg, and Tijs (1998), and to the Ω-value introduced by Bergantiños, Casas- Méndez, and Vázquez-Brage (2000). The main difference being that the maximal aspiration a player may have in the game is his maximal (among all coalitions) marginal contribution. We show that it is well defined on the class of totally essential and non-level games. We propose an extensive-form game whose subgame perfect Nash equilibrium payoffs coincide with the Chi-compromise value
