ABSTRACT

Whether intertwined through wifi or plugged desktops, teenagers and young people are increasingly immersed in the ciberspace, due to the presence TDIC becoming ubiquitous. This study aims to comprehend how students from a public school in Bahia's countryside feel about having their lives more effectively in this space, as to relate socially, affectively, politically and so on in this pandemic context. It is an exploratory approach, with theoretical and methodological orientations that follow the New Studies of Literacies. The construction of the narratives happened through episodic interviews and the mining of the information over the Voyant Tools interface. From this interaction, it was possible to observe that some intermittences have provoked other sociocommunicatives becomings at the same time that some reverberations undertake that the participants of the research are in physical, but not social distancing, since sociability, too, happens over the virtual sphere.

ABSTRACT

Background: The COVID-19 pandemic and its control measures, which have not been experienced in the world in the last hundred years, have impacted academic scientific production, which, in Brazil, was already in the process of progressive erosion of its foundations. Thus, scientific initiation during medical graduation, which depends on funding and institutional structure, and extremely beneficial to the graduation process, was jeopardized due to restrictive measures. Objective: This article aims to expose the point of view of undergraduate medical students enrolled in a scientific initiation program about the panorama of Brazilian academic scientific production and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in its multiple aspects. Discussion: The lack of an effective scientific initiation is one of the many factors that lead to a decline in the number of medical researchers. The way that scientific initiation is placed, as part of a parallel curriculum, and a whole scrapped public production structure are impairing, chronic and noteworthy features. The apparatus of national scientific production is mostly structured in Higher Education Institutions and research institutions, both public. Within the scope of graduation, it can be didactically subdivided into four pillars: financial support, structure, student proactivity and the advisor’s aptitude. The COVID-19 pandemic has been an additional blow to this weakened and fragile structure. Scientific initiation was thus negatively impacted. Public opinion and political aspects further influence an imbroglio of “scientific denial” and a craving for effective information and solutions to the unprecedented problem of a pandemic of this proportion. Conclusion: It is clear that national scientific production is placed in a survival situation in the face of new challenges posed by the pandemic. Likewise, scientific initiation is less and less stimulating during graduation, even though it is an experience of great value in medical and personal development. © 2021 Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirao Preto - U.S.P..

ABSTRACT

In this period of Covid-19 pandemic, in which there were sudden changes in education, with the transition from traditional education to e-learning, it is essential to analyze the impacts related to access and use of technology in the context of e-learning, in the perception of higher education students. In this context, all students were forced to use the technology, so it is relevant to investigate the interrelationships between satisfaction with distance learning and all the components associated with the use and acceptance of technology as a support to their learning. Data were collected through a questionnaire, which includes a set of 26 items that aim to assess students’ perceptions about distance learning using six different subscales: Familiarity, Barriers, Anxiety, Usefulness, Ease of use, and Satisfaction concerning the e-learning. A Structural Equation Model (SEM) analysis was performed using Partial Least Squares (PLS), to test the validity of the constructs and the model hypotheses. The results revealed a statistically significant relationship between Satisfaction concerning the distance learning and the constructs Barriers, Ease of use and Usefulness. Based on the model used, other significant interrelationships were registered, such as familiarity with technology positively affects the ease of use of technological resources and barriers, while anxiety negatively affects the ease of use of these resources and the usefulness for students. A multigroup analysis revealed, among other results, that in the students with a moderate to high autonomy, the familiarity with technology positively affects satisfaction with e-learning comparatively to the students with low autonomy. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.

ABSTRACT

In this paper, we introduce a game that allows one to assess the potential loss of efficiency induced by a decentralized control or local management of a global epidemic. Each player typically represents a region or a country which is assumed to choose its control action to implement a tradeoff between socio-economic aspects and the health aspect. We conduct the Nash equilibrium analysis of this game. Since the analysis is not trivial in general, sufficient conditions for existence and uniqueness are provided. Then we quantify through numerical results the loss induced by decentralization, measured in terms of price of anarchy (PoA) and price of connectedness (PoC). These results allow one to clearly identify scenarios where decentralization is acceptable or not regarding to the retained global efficiency measures. IEEE

ABSTRACT

Introduction: The COVID-19 typically presents as a lower respiratory tract infection. Among its various extrapulmonary manifestations is cardiovascular damage, and these are the ones that are most associated with morbidity and mortality. A search for scientific information was carried;resources were obtained from databases PubMed, PubMed Central, SciELO, Ebsco, ClinicalKey, and Scopus. The search strategies formulated were: SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19, Cardiovascular complications;as well as its translations into the English language. Objective: To describe the cardiovascular complications in patients with the COVID-19. Development: There is a wide diversity of criteria in the scientific literature regarding cardiovascular damage in the context of COVID-19 infection. Frequently reported cardiovascular complications are acute myocardial injury, acute myocarditis, cardiac arrhythmias, acute coronary syndrome, acute heart failure, heart valve damage, venous thromboembolic disease, and shock. Conclusions: Cardiovascular complications in COVID-19 carriers were described. SARS-CoV-2 infection causes direct or indirect damage to the myocardium, heart valves and the rest of the cardiovascular system. © 2021, Editorial Ciencias Medicas. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

Portugal is a country in which the tourism sector assumes great importance, contributing around 15% of the national GDP and with more than 1 million jobs. In this sense, COVID-19 is expected to have a dramatic impact on the Portuguese economy aggravated by the existence of a reduced internal market with low purchasing power and in which there is a high dependence on the external market. This perspective study explores the challenges and opportunities that Portuguese companies in the field of tourism are facing due to the emergence of this pandemic. The challenges faced by companies are both short-term and long-term. In the short term, it is essential to ensure sufficient liquidity to reopen activities and in the long term, it is necessary to be prepared and reactive to disruptive movements that may arise in tourist demand. However, it is also important to recognize that some opportunities can be exploited, such as the quality of the health response, the exploitation of a less mass tourism supply based on the components of social and environmental sustainability, the increase of tourism among the elderly population from countries with greater purchasing power and the acceleration of the digitalization of tourism operations.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: With the current reality that we are experiencing with the beginning of the new coronavirus (nCov) pandemic, everyone is dealing with new challenges. Among these, there are medical students, with their practical activities interrupted and many concerns. Objective: This article portrays the experience of medical students attending internship and the impact of the pandemic on medical education. Discussion: Among the multiple issues that students have been experiencing, there is a duality between the desire to engage in the fight against the pandemic and the fear of contamination of their friends and family. Furthermore, there is an increasing offer of online content, such as courses, congresses, and discoveries regarding COVID-19. With the massive adoption of Open and Distance Learning, the student faces the duality between traditional and active teaching methods, in addition to fear about the interruption of practical activities and the question of when they will be re-established. Finally, there are concerns about the students' future: when and how they will complete the medical course, and the preparation for Medical Residency Exams. Conclusion: It is clear that the pandemic is significantly affecting already concerned medical students, in multiple aspects of their lives, about their training and completion of the course.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: COVID-19 does not present a distinction of ages, races and sex, children and youth represent a sector of the population that does not escape this reality. Early identification of the disease favors a better prognosis. Objective: To describe general aspects of COVID-19 in pediatric patients. Methods: A bibliographic review was performed, using the databases (PubMed, Scielo, Ebsco and Clinical Key). The search descriptors used were: SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19, and COVID-19 in children. The search yielded 77 articles, of which 47 were discarded for not meeting the inclusion criteria. 30, 100% of the year 2020, were taken to cite the work. The analysis-synthesis, induction-deduction and historical-logical methods were used. Development: To characterize the disease, there are abundant scientific articles worldwide, pediatric patients are equally affected than the rest of the population. The relevance of identifying the disease early, justifies the dispersion existing in the literature. Conclusions: Despite the scientific advances made in multiple investigations, there are still elements of the disease that must be studied in depth. Although pediatric patients generally present a better evolution, probably influenced by the absence of existing comorbidities in the adult population, COVID-19 has similar behavior. © 2020, Editorial Ciencias Medicas.
