Lister

 

a machine for making bed ridges. It is used to cultivate vegetables on soils with high groundwater levels. It operates in a unit with a vegetable planter and fertilizer distributor.

The working parts of listers made in the USSR are two plow bottoms with graders and three small harrows. Four fertilizer distributors and four injection knives are mounted on the cultivator to introduce inorganic fertilizers. A single pass of the body of the plow bottom forms one ridge and two half-ridges; the graders level the surface of the ridges, and the small harrows loosen the soil. In the second pass, a second, newly formed half-ridge is added to one half-ridge. The ridges thus formed are 20 cm high and up to 90 cm wide. The distance between the axes of adjacent ridges is 135–140 cm. The productivity of a two-bottom lister is 1.4–1.7 hectares per hr.

In the northwestern zone of the USSR a combined unit is used that consists of a lister along with a sowing machine, a ridger-sowing machine, and a cultivator. At the same time as it makes the ridges, this unit loosens and packs the soil, sows the vegetable crops, and inserts inorganic fertilizers.

Con el objetivo de disminuir las diferentes barreras que existen para la llegada de mujeres al ambito publico y, concretamente, a los cargos de eleccion popular, la disposicion de una cuota tiene el proposito de aumentar las posibilidades de las mujeres para integrar las listas que presentan los partidos a las elecciones (Larserud y Taphorn 2007, 9).
Nesse sentido, outro aspecto que pode exercer influencia sao as leis de genero, especialmente leis de cotas que pre-estabelecem a posicao de mulheres nas listas (TRIPP, 2008).Os sistemas de cotas sao apenas uma das possibilidades de aumento da participacao de mulheres.
Decorridos poucos anos apos os trabalhos de Deese (1959a, 1959b), que demonstram claramente a ocorrencia de recordacao falsa com listas de palavras, e na sequencia da utilizacao do mesmo tipo de material para estudar o fenomeno em tarefas de reconhecimento, surgiu um primeiro modelo explicativo destes resultados, que ficou conhecido como a teoria da ativacao implicita (Underwood, 1965).
Para comparar os resultados das listas de verificacao foi definido o valor de 75% de adequacao como ponto de corte para dicotomizar a classificacao das escolas (abaixo desse ponto foi considerado como inadequado e acima como adequado), de acordo com a classificacao de conformidade da RDC 2759.
Por ejemplo, algunas listas con valores de AI considerablemente bajos (e.g., 0.01 o 0.03) han mostrado alto falso reconocimiento (29% y 30%, respectivamente) (Gallo y Roediger, 2002).
Se determinaron los valores de los parametros del modelo; se calcularon las probabilidades de derivacion de pacientes de un establecimiento a otro y de una especialidad a otra; se cuantificaron las listas de espera por establecimiento y especialidad; y se calcularon funciones de distribucion para las atenciones y derivaciones por especialidad y establecimiento, segun dia de la semana y estacion del ano.
