1.5.2 Late-onset multifactorial disorders

Childhood testing involves testing children for genetic diseases that may not become a p

Superficies adulteradas: el muro en l?nea y la representaci?n f?lmica [Adulterated surfaces: the onl
Online communities use a ?wall? as a place to articulate non - synchronic communication among its members. Such a place, however, poorly explores the metaphor of the wall as a means of enhancing online experiences. Online ?walls? do not explore or challenge the richness of a real wall, and they do not embrace new experiences that are only possible in the digital world. In order to tackle these issues, this paper analyzes three movie scenes where the everyday perception of the wall is altered by

Modelos digitales de representaci?n de lo real como estrategia de management alternativo en la pr?ct
An architectural project is designed in weeks or months?sometimes in places far from the construction site?and is built in years. The challenge of design is more than creating a three - dimensional digital (3D) model that includes all available information; visualization and communication throughout the entire process is crucial due to the global nature of contemporary architectural practice. This study asks: What tool would satisfy this need for communication? The objective of this paper is to

Beyond the "Berlusconi Common Sense". A New Model of Politics for the 21st Century
Mostly outside Italy, there is a widespread common sense about Berlusconi and his political adventure: he has been able to enter successfully the political arena because of his television empire and because of his unclear links with illegal groups and business. This interpretation is undoubtedly true but it is also a limited one as it is not able to point out all the novelties that Berlusconi may represent.
