The objective of this paper is to analyze the representation of health services in Mexican television, onsidering that television plays an important role in the production and reproduction of the social meanings of ealth. A descriptive study analyzed the contents of 672 hours of continuous television (media flows) broadcast in Mexico in 2011, examining advertising, television shows and newscasts. The analysis of all these messages shows that the representation of private care services predominates. When public care services are mentioned, the communication is mainly regarding the Seguro Popular de Salud [Popular Health Insurance, for those with low incomes], while the social security model of care is underrepresented. We therefore conclude that television favors the two first models of health care. This kind of representation could hold potential consequences for health subjectivities.

This paper compares two lobster fisheries, the Western Australian rock lobster (Panulirus cygnus) and the Mexico Baja California red rock lobster (Panulirus interruptus) that have been certified and re-certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), and compares the benefits and challenges associated with the certification process. Both fisheries have had similar conditions imposed to address deficiencies identified in the assessment process. The conditions included a better understanding of target stock status, improving monitoring and reporting of bycatch and Endangered Threatened and Protected species (ETPs), improving the understanding of the potential impacts of fishing on the ecosystem and implementing research plans. Providing the data to address these conditions was both expensive and time consuming but improved the understanding of these fisheries. Currently, MSC certified lobster accounts for approximately 20% of global lobster harvest. However, there is no evidence of a price premium for either Western Australian or Mexican Baja California lobster. At present, the vast majority of both lobster species sold are not tagged with the MSC logo due to the additional cost associated with its use. Despite the differences in species, landings and value, the Western Australian rock lobster and Mexican Baja California red rock lobster fisheries have had similar experiences in the benefits and challenges of the MSC process. In the case of the two lobster fisheries examined here, and undoubtedly in a number of other fisheries around the world where domestic or international market recognition of MSC is not high, the social and political benefits of certification far outweigh any economic incentive. © 2015.

Description of a recent action in the Multimedia Documentation Service of the Department of Library and Information Science at Universidad Complutense de Madrid. A proposal to establish a university-based online publication platform on information science research (Redocom 2.0) is presented, citing precedents produced in this area by the Documentation Service. Contents, structure, systematization, and the corresponding sections are described, with a few conclusions on the matters affecting the present and future of this online medium.

The µ-calculus is an expressive propositional modal logic augmented with least and greatest fixed-points, and encompasses many temporal, program, dynamic and description logics. The model checking problem for the µ-calculusisknown to be in NP ∩ Co-NP. In this paper, we study the model checking problem for the µ-calculus extended with graded modalities. These constructors allow to express numerical constraints on the occurrence of accessible nodes (worlds) satisfying a certain formula. It is known that the model checking problem for the graded µ-calculus with finite models is in EXPTIME. In the current work, we introduce a linear-time model checking algorithm for the graded µ-calculus when models are finite unranked trees. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.

We present experimental results of a proposed dual wavelength fiber laser with Er/Yb double clad fiber. The linear cavity laser is based in the use of two fiber Bragg gratings for wavelength selection and a Sagnac interferometer for cavity losses adjustment to obtain dual-wavelength operation. With pump power variations from the lasing threshold to 890 mW, Self-Q-switched pulses are obtained. With a pump power range from 1.1 W to 1.7 W, self-pulsing operation is observed. With pump power above 2 W CW operation is achieved. © 2016 SPIE.
