Abstract

A lo largo de la historia el ser humano ha necesitado conservar sus alimentos, principalmente la carne, para ello ha utilizado diversos aditivos para curar esta proteína, como es el caso del Nitrito de Sodio, el problema radica en que este aditivo está relacionado con aparición de algunos tipos de cáncer, por lo cual, se ha buscado una alternativa natural al Nitrito de Sodio.Con esto en mente, el objetivo es evaluar el posible uso de la pasta de achiote (Bixa orellana) en la industria alimentaria cárnica, como sustituto natural del Nitrito de Sodio, con ello se pretende contestar a la pregunta ¿es posible el uso de la pasta de achiote (Bixa orellana) en la industria alimentaria cárnica, como sustituto natural del Nitrito de Sodio? Para responder a esta pregunta, se realizará una investigación bibliográfica sobre diferentes estudios en los cuales se demuestren las propiedades colorantes, conservantes y antimicrobianas del achiote (Bixa orellana), de estas se extraerán las mediciones de CMI (Concentración Mínima Inhibitoria) y la CBM (Concentración Bactericida Mínima), posteriormente se creará una pasta de achiote (Bixa orellana) al 12,88% m/v de Ácido Acético, que se sometió a análisis con muestras que contenían Staphylococcus aureus y Escherichia coli, luego se compararon los datos para determinar si muestran consistencia como inhibidor bacteriano o bactericida.De acuerdo a estos resultados, se puede concluir:Según los datos de los estudios consultados y los datos obtenidos de los análisis de las muestras, el achiote tiene potencial en la industria alimentaria cárnica, pero, específicamente para la pasta de achiote creada y conservada en vinagre, se obtuvo una CMI de 1.49 g/mL y una CBM fue de 2.45 g/mL para aquellas muestras con presencia de Staphylococcus aureus, mientras que para las que tenían presencia de Escherichia coli, la CMI registrada fue de 1.59 g/mL y la CBM de 2.56 g/mL.La coloración y el sabor obtenidos mediante la pasta de achiote resultan ser muy similares o superiores a los obtenidos con Nitrito de Sodio, con la diferencia en que según (Araúz, 2020), el principal componente de las semillas de achiote es la Bixina, la cual es muy segura para el consumo humano, ya que estudios de toxicidad, en ratas, han demostrado que la bixina posee baja o nula toxicidad en ratas a las que se le administró 1 000 mg por kilogramo de peso corporal.Es por ello que se debe buscar un sustito seguro para el curado de las carnes, y todo apunta a que este puede ser la pasta de achiote.Con la utilización de la pasta de achiote como sustituto del Nitrito de Sodio como conservante y colorante, se lograría reactivar las economías de comunidades agrícolas de América Tropical, con lo cual el impacto de este cambio sería no solo a nivel de salud de los consumidores, sino que también, se impactaría positivamente en la economía, máxime en estos tiempos de pandemia, en los cuales es menester buscar formas de reactivar la economía.

Influence of E-learning training on the acquisition of competences in basketball coaches in Cantabria

The main aim of this study was to analyse the influence of e-learning training on the acquisition of competences in basketball coaches in Cantabria. The current landscape of basketball coach training shows an increasing demand for innovative training models and emerging pedagogies, including e-learning-based methodologies. The study sample consisted of fifty students from these courses, all above 16 years of age (36 males, 14 females). Among them, 16% resided outside the autonomous community of Cantabria, 10% resided more than 50 km from the city of Santander, 36% between 10 and 50 km, 14% less than 10 km, and 24% resided within Santander city. Data were collected through a Google Forms survey distributed by the Cantabrian Basketball Federation to training course students. Participation was voluntary and anonymous. The survey, consisting of 56 questions, was validated by two sports and health doctors and two senior basketball coaches. The collected data were processed and analysed using Microsoft® Excel version 16.74, and the results were expressed in percentages. The analysis revealed that 24.60% of the students trained through the e-learning methodology considered themselves fully qualified as basketball coaches, contrasting with 10.98% of those trained via traditional face-to-face methodology. The results of the study provide insights into important characteristics that can be adjusted and improved within the investigated educational process. Moreover, the study concludes that e-learning training effectively qualifies basketball coaches in Cantabria.

Do ICT firms manage R&D differently? Firm-level and macroeconomic effects on corporate R&D investment: Empirical evidence from a multi-countries context

Technological firms invest in R&D looking for innovative solutions but assuming high costs and great (technological) uncertainty regarding final results and returns. Additionally, they face other problems related to R&D management. This empirical study tries to determine which of the factors favour or constrain the decision of these firms to engage in R&D. The analysis uses financial data of 14,619 ICT listed companies of 22 countries from 2003 to 2018. Additionally, macroeconomic data specific for the countries and the sector were used. For the analysis of dynamic panel data, a System-GMM method is used. Among the findings, we highlight that cash flow, contrary to the known theoretical models and empirical evidences, negatively impacts on R&D investment. Debt is neither the right source for R&D funding, as the effect is also negative. This suggests that ICT companies are forced to manage their R&D activities differently, relying more on other funding sources, taking advantage of growth opportunities and benefiting from a favourable macroeconomic environment in terms of growth and increased business sector spending on R&D. These results are similar in both sub-sectors and in all countries, both bank- and market based. The exception is firms with few growth opportunities and little debt.

Efficacy and classification of Sesamum indicum linn seeds with Rosa damascena mill oil in uncomplicated pelvic inflammatory disease using machine learning

Background and objectives: As microbes are developing resistance to antibiotics, natural, botanical drugs or traditional herbal medicine are presently being studied with an eye of great curiosity and hope. Hence, complementary and alternative treatments for uncomplicated pelvic inflammatory disease (uPID) are explored for their efficacy. Therefore, this study determined the therapeutic efficacy and safety of Sesamum indicum Linn seeds with Rosa damascena Mill Oil in uPID with standard control. Additionally, we analyzed the data with machine learning. Materials and methods: We included 60 participants in a double-blind, double-dummy, randomized standard-controlled study. Participants in the Sesame and Rose oil group (SR group) (n = 30) received 14 days course of black sesame powder (5 gm) mixed with rose oil (10 mL) per vaginum at bedtime once daily plus placebo capsules orally. The standard group (SC), received doxycycline 100 mg twice and metronidazole 400 mg thrice orally plus placebo per vaginum for the same duration. The primary outcome was a clinical cure at post-intervention for visual analogue scale (VAS) for lower abdominal pain (LAP), and McCormack pain scale (McPS) for abdominal-pelvic tenderness. The secondary outcome included white blood cells (WBC) cells in the vaginal wet mount test, safety profile, and health-related quality of life assessed by SF-12. In addition, we used AdaBoost (AB), Naïve Bayes (NB), and Decision Tree (DT) classifiers in this study to analyze the experimental data. Results: The clinical cure for LAP and McPS in the SR vs SC group was 82.85% vs 81.48% and 83.85% vs 81.60% on Day 15 respectively. On Day 15, pus cells less than 10 in the SR vs SC group were 86.6% vs 76.6% respectively. No adverse effects were reported in both groups. The improvement in total SF-12 score on Day 30 for the SR vs SC group was 82.79% vs 80.04% respectively. In addition, our Naive Bayes classifier based on the leave-one-out model achieved the maximum accuracy (68.30%) for the classification of both groups of uPID. Conclusion: We concluded that the SR group is cost-effective, safer, and efficacious for curing uPID. Proposed alternative treatment (test drug) could be a substitute of standard drug used for Female genital tract infections.

Adaptive neighborhood rough set model for hybrid data processing: a case study on Parkinson’s disease behavioral analysis

Extracting knowledge from hybrid data, comprising both categorical and numerical data, poses significant challenges due to the inherent difficulty in preserving information and practical meanings during the conversion process. To address this challenge, hybrid data processing methods, combining complementary rough sets, have emerged as a promising approach for handling uncertainty. However, selecting an appropriate model and effectively utilizing it in data mining requires a thorough qualitative and quantitative comparison of existing hybrid data processing models. This research aims to contribute to the analysis of hybrid data processing models based on neighborhood rough sets by investigating the inherent relationships among these models. We propose a generic neighborhood rough set-based hybrid model specifically designed for processing hybrid data, thereby enhancing the efficacy of the data mining process without resorting to discretization and avoiding information loss or practical meaning degradation in datasets. The proposed scheme dynamically adapts the threshold value for the neighborhood approximation space according to the characteristics of the given datasets, ensuring optimal performance without sacrificing accuracy. To evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme, we develop a testbed tailored for Parkinson’s patients, a domain where hybrid data processing is particularly relevant. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed scheme consistently outperforms existing schemes in adaptively handling both numerical and categorical data, achieving an impressive accuracy of 95% on the Parkinson’s dataset. Overall, this research contributes to advancing hybrid data processing techniques by providing a robust and adaptive solution that addresses the challenges associated with handling hybrid data, particularly in the context of Parkinson’s disease analysis.

Unveiling the truth: A systematic review of fact-checking and fake news research in social sciences

The current media ecosystem, marked by immediacy and social networks dynamics, has created a fertile field for disinformation. Faced with its exponential growth, since 2014, research has focused on combating false content in the media. From a descriptive approach, this study has analyzed 200 documents on fact-checking and fake news published between 2014 and 2022 in scientific journals indexed in Scopus. This study has found that Europe and the United States are leading the way in the number of journals and authors publishing on the subject. The United States universities are the ones that host the most significant number of authors working on fact-checking, while the methodologies used, mostly ad hoc due to the novelty of the topic, allow to reflect on the need to promote work focused on the design, testing, and evaluation of prototypes or real experiences within the field. The most common contributions analyzed include typologies of false content and media manipulation mechanisms, models for evaluating and detecting disinformation, proposals to combat false content and strengthen verification mechanisms, studies on the role of social media in the spread of disinformation, efforts to develop media literacy among the public and journalists, case studies of fact-checkers, identification of factors that influence the belief in fake news, and analysis of the relationship between disinformation, verification, politics, and democracy. It is concluded that it is essential to develop research that connects the academy with the industry to raise awareness of the need to address these issues among the different actors in the media scenario.
