Exposición de la muerte como satisfacción anónima de algunos Hombres - Death as an anonymous Satisfaction of some Men

Madelay Coromoto Escobar Uztariz

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.7.4.682

This investigation does not seek to verify weather there is an afterlife since that intention may take it out of the philosophical framework. In this special degree, the main intention is to go deeper into the sick morbidity, to highlight all the meaning it represents in the perception of men. This work is oriented to the existential study of death as a natural and ontological phenomenon where the protagonist is the man. The research is based on the work of E.M. Cioran on the Heights of Despair. The general objective is to expose death as an anonymous satisfaction of some men, so we proceed to study the concept of death to examine their own thoughts, beliefs, and experiences of men and also reflect on the exalting presentation of death in literary texts and the seventh art. As a result of this research, it can be deduced and concluded that the conception of death and dying as an immediate fact usually sensitizes man to such an extent that he himself is satisfied with it.

Corazón delator - The Tell-Tale Heart

Timoteo Marchini

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.7.3.681

During the first week of December 1952, a dense toxic fog settled over London, resulting in a total excess of 4,000 deaths compared to the previous week. The magnitude of this event, in terms of the number of people affected, finally confirmed that air pollution caused by human activities can be deadly. For the first time in history, humans became aware of the urgent need of building a relationship with the environment that achieves, in addition to their own development, their survival. The Great London Fog of 1952 is a milestone in air pollution epidemiology and environmental toxicology. This is the story.

En Torno al Concepto de Bildung en Gadamer - On the concept of Bildung in Gadamer

Luis Enrique Silva Vieira

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.7.3.680

When undertaking a hermeneutic-philosophical discourse, centered on the notion of Bildung or human formation, it emerges as an epistemic objective to provide meaningful explanations in the field of the Sciences of the Spirit. Here, Hans-Georg Gadamer has had a fruitful philosophical innovation that affects both the understanding of man and ethics and politics. This research on his contributions to the Bildung is divided into two questions.

A libro abierto - An open book

Sebastián Vishnopolska

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.7.3.676

In the 1990s, scientists started to discuss how to sequence the human genome, the complete list of genes encoded in human DNA. Two research groups, one directed by James Watson and funded by NIH grants, and another one supervised by Craig Venter and financed by private funding, started a race to be the first one to obtain the complete sequence. In 2000, the US President Bill Clinton, together with Venter and Francis Collins (Watson’s successor), announced that the first draft of the human genome was available. In the last years, cost reduction for sequencing the whole human DNA open several research fields, such as cancer genomics, pharmacogenomics, diagnosis of rare diseases, and genomics of pregnancy, among many others. In the present article, originally published in El Gato y La Caja, the history and impact of this discovery is presented.

Desarrollo de Canales de Microfluidica - Development of microfluidic Channels

Ana Belén Peñaherrera Pazmiño

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.7.3.671

The general objective of this thesis is to develop and investigate microfluidic devices to be applied to the culture of eukaryotic cells and the study of fluids in porous media. During this thesis work, microfluidic devices have been successfully developed, which were applied in the culture of both adherent and suspended cells and in the analysis of flow in porous media. A new method of manufacturing microfluidic devices has been developed the manufacturing of microdevices possible in the country (and in other developing countries), without the need of access to a cleanroom, which will make the massification of microfluidic possible.

La meritocracia te la debo - Endebted Meritocracy

Sol Minoldo

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.7.3.668

A meritocracy is a society in which success and failure belong to those who 'deserve' them. What you get depends directly on the decisions you make and on archiving the right balance between responsibility and audacity. Yet, a key point is frequently overlooked: identical circumstances, means, and opportunities must be guaranteed for meritocracy to make sense. In this article, Sol Minoldo highlights the danger of the reverse the logic, that is, assuming that the different achievements are reliable proof that some made more effort than others, and discusses what a higher performance might actually reflect.

Inmortal

Ezequiel Calvo Roitberg

Languages: Spanish, Castilian

DOI: 10.17160/josha.7.2.658

This is one of many Articles El Gato y La Caja shares with the JOSHA Journal. This time in the field of Life and Sciences Ezequiel Calvo presents an incredible story about Henrietta Lacks, a woman that changes and improve forever all the labs around the world. Shortly after being diagnosed (and without her consent) a small piece of Henrietta Lacks´ tumor was cut out and put it in a glass dish. Surprisingly, her uterine-cervical cancer cells had the ability to grow indefinitely. In this single immoral act, the beginning of a revolution in cell biology had occurred. On October 4, 1951, Henrietta Lacks died without knowing that a little piece of her was going to be found in almost every laboratory in the world that uses cell culture. This is her story.
