The Universidad Argentina John F. Kennedy was founded by Miguel Herrera Figueroa, JD, on April 4, 1964 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The university has 18 units in the City of Buenos Aires and two in Buenos Aires Province. In 2008, it had 39 academic departments and a students department, where activities related to sports are developed with the Kennedy Choir and the Theater Workshop. Wikipedia.

This article is intended to try give light to one of the questions that often reveals to the student of Psychology and Psychiatry on the application of Jungian psychotherapy. How is its praxis? Is it done face to face or does it use a couch? Which are the methods employed? On the basis of Jung's own claims that it defends no doctrine and only describes facts and leaves to everyone the freedom to deal with them, we will find from a fundamentally empirical analytic space. It does not work from a scheme systematized on the basis of a prior theoretical orthodoxy. On the contrary, each patient will be presented as a new challenge to the understanding of the therapist.

Cerebral hypoxia-ischemia damages synaptic proteins, resulting in cytoskeletal alterations, protein aggregation and neuronal death. In the previous works, we have shown neuronal and synaptic changes in rat neostriatum subjected to hypoxia that leads to ubi-protein accumulation. Recently, we also showed that, changes in F-actin organization could be related to early alterations induced by hypoxia in the Central Nervous System. However, little is known about effective treatment to diminish the damage. The main aim of this work is to study the effects of birth hypothermia on the actin cytoskeleton of neostriatal post-synaptic densities (PSD) in 60 days olds rats by immunohistochemistry, photooxidation and western blot. We used 2 different protocols of hypothermia: (a) intrahypoxic hypothermia at 15 °C and (b) post-hypoxia hypothermia at 32 °C. Consistent with previous data at 30 days, staining with phalloidin-Alexa488 followed by confocal microscopy analysis showed an increase of F-actin fluorescent staining in the neostriatum of hypoxic animals. Correlative photooxidation electron microscopy confirmed these observations showing an increment in the number of mushroom-shaped F-actin staining spines in neostriatal excitatory synapses in rats subjected to hypoxia. In addition, western blot revealed β-actin increase in PSDs in hypoxic animals. The optic relative density measurement showed a significant difference between controls and hypoxic animals. When hypoxia was induced under hypothermic conditions, the changes observed in actin cytoskeleton were blocked. Post-hypoxic hypothermia showed similar answer but actin cytoskeleton modifications were not totally reverted as we observed at 15 °C. These data suggest that the decrease of the body temperature decreases the actin modifications in dendritic spines preventing the neuronal death. © 2014 Elsevier B.V. Source

Jung conceptualized the collective unconscious as the locus of the myths, the absolutely genuine and primary patterns of thinking and feeling of humanity. The legend of Oedipus or myth of incest is a irrefutable proof of its eternal validity. The present essay is an attempt to take an alternative look to a history that belong to all of us. Situations that are developed in this drama, like the characters involved in it may charge significance as an archetypal and essentially symbolic interpretation. Source

This paper reviews the notion of safety culture and then describes some of the tools that can be used to assess it. Required characteristics to obtain reliable tools and techniques are provided, along with a short summary of the most common and important tools and techniques used to assess safety culture at the nuclear field is described. At the end of this paper, the reader will better understand the importance of the safety culture of the organization and will have requirements to help him in choosing reliable tools and techniques. Further, there will be recommendations on how best to follow-up after an assessment of safety culture. Source

Introduction and background: In the last few years, a substantial body of evidence indicates that cutaneous psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis patients are at higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease. However, underlying mechanism remains not completely understood. In this review we discuss the role of the immune system in the development of atherosclerosis, focusing on available data implicating the role of an enhanced immune-mediated proinflammatory status in psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis diseases. Methods: A systematic search was performed on Pubmed until November 2014, with preference to the sources published within the past 8. years, including epidemiological studies (prospective and retrospective); cross-sectional case-control studies and reviews. Articles were selected according critical associations using the following keywords: arthritis, immune-mediated inflammatory diseases, and psoriasis. These were combined with closely related keywords reflecting cardiovascular diseases: atherogenesis, endothelial dysfunction, intima media thickness, subclinical atherosclerosis, plaque, thrombosis, thrombus, fibrinolysis, coagulation, and reactive oxygen species. Both types of disease selected terms were separately combined with non-traditional (innate and adaptive pro and anti-inflammatory immune molecules and cells) and traditional (metabolic related conditions and molecules) cardiovascular risk factors. Results and conclusions: Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis diseases illustrate that immune-mediated activated crossroads of inflammation beyond enhanced cardiovascular risk factors are the result of an interplay between different proatherogenic mediators derived from metabolic, vascular and autoimmune joint and skin inflamed target tissue. Consistent with this point of view, psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis diseases offer an invaluable opportunity to reinforce our knowledge about atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. © 2015. Source
