  • Environmental policy: use and manure management in Comarca Lagunera

    • Authors: Antonio Ismael Acevedo Peralta, Juan Antonio Leos Rodríguez, Uriel Figueroa Viramontes, José Luis Romo Lozano
      Pages: 3 - 12
      Abstract: Considering the increasing environmental pollution, it is necessary to analyze the activities in the manure chain, from collection to the application. The use of manure as fertilizer is one of the oldest practices in agriculture; however, continuous application increases the risk of contamination. The approach is mainly empirical, and combines fieldwork with the analysis of the regulatory framework in Mexico. A common practice in the Comarca Lagunera is the application at doses up to 150 ton/ha, without pretreatment. Regarding the regulation, manure management is very punctual. Have not been generated incentives to dimension and reduce the environmental impact derived from livestock activities. Take measures established in other countries is a good choice, since proper treatment and manure management to decrease the problems caused.

  • Biocatalytic reduction of benzaldehyde using vegetable wastes as enzyme
           sources

    • Authors: Aida Solis Oba, Rosa María Martínez Pérez, Fadia Cervantes Domínguez, Heminia I Pérez Méndez, Myrna Solís Oba, Norberto Manjarrez Álvarez
      Pages: 13 - 18
      Abstract: The aqueous extracts of the following vegetable wastes were used as an enzyme source to reduce benzaldehyde to benzyl alcohol: capulin, mamey, green pepper, chili, and avocado seeds; bean, turnip rape, fava bean, lima bean, and jinicuil pods; papaya peel, and chive leaves. The highest conversions of benzaldehyde were obtained with the capulin and mamey seeds, bean pods and chive leaves (86%, 77%, 54%, and 45% of benzyl alcohol respectively). The biocatalytic methodology proposed avoids the generation of chemical toxic waste because metallic reducing agents are used in the chemical reduction; and the biological residues can be used as fertilizers. This procedure complies with some of the principles of green chemistry.

  • Producer's perceptions of pesticide use in three agricultural systems
           in the Chiapas Higlands, Mexico

    • Authors: Héctor Ulises Bernardino Hernández, Ramón Mariaca Méndez, Austreberta Nazar Beutelspacher, José David Álvarez Solís, Arturo Torres Dosal, Crispín Herrera Portugal
      Pages: 19 - 34
      Abstract: The industrialization process of modern society is transforming traditional production systems into conventional systems with high dependence on external and synthetic inputs. A study was conducted in three production systems (corn, flowers and vegetables) in Chiapas Higlands, Mexico. The objective was to analyze users' perception of both economic and technological benefits and health risks of pesticide use. 523 surveys were applied to collect sociodemographic information, some characteristics of production systems and the perceived benefits and Health Belief Model (MCS, for its acronym in Spanish) constructs (susceptibility, severity, barriers, benefits and signals for action) with relation to pesticide use. Corn producers prioritize technological benefits, while horticulturists and flower growers give priority to economic benefits. Regardless of educational attainment and perceived threats to their health, producers do not have sufficient beliefs that enable reducing threats, which encourages behavior patterns that favor risk situations in their day-to-day health care. The use of extremely hazardous pesticides is common.

  • Elevated depressive symptomatology and use of contraceptive methods in
           health care college students in central Mexico

    • Authors: María Teresa Hurtado de Mendoza Zabalgoitia, Marcela Veytia López, Rosalinda Guadarrama Guadarrama, Catalina González Forteza, Fernando A. Wagner
      Pages: 35 - 43
      Abstract: Depression is a health problem that affects 23% of college students, predisposing them to risky sexual behaviors. The aim of this study was to identify the influence of Elevated Depressive Symptomatology (EDS) on contraceptive use and failures when used. A non-experimental study was carried out on 1853 college students of both sexes, aged 18-24 years, at two public universities in central Mexico. EDS and contraceptive use were compared using χ² and Odds Ratio adjusted for sex, age, marital status, house share (family, roommates, cohabitation, etc.), multiple partners and early onset of sexual intercourse. The results show that EDS is greater in college women than men. In the presence of EDS, the probability of failure in the use of natural and hormonal contraceptives is 40%, and  38% when not using a condom, (p < 0.05). These behaviors increase the risk of unintended pregnancies and  of contracting sexually transmitted diseases within this population.

  • Physical, mental and social effort in leisure activities: scale of
           assessment for Mexican Youth

    • Authors: Vicenta Reynoso-Alcántara, Samana Vergara Lope Tristán
      Pages: 44 - 51
      Abstract: Leisure activities involve physical, mental and social effort. These activities are beneficial for the development of the human being, so it is necessary to have instruments to measure participation in such activities. Thus, a scale was built and validated. Method: two phases were carried out; both performed a sampling by convenience and with the participation of students from a Mexican public university. First phase: forty-four young analyzed a list of 31 leisure activities and valued the physical, mental and social effort required to perform them. Second phase: surrendered the list of activities (including also a scale of frequency of participation) to 332 youths (63% women; average age of 20.47 years old). The estimated effort (physical, mental and social) of each participant was calculated, considering the values of phase 1 and the frequency of participation. The indices of internal consistency are acceptable (a measure of general effort α = 0. 93; physical dimension α = 0. 76; mental α  = 0. 80; social α = 0. 80). These data have allowed us to consider the scale as an adequate measure of the level of participation in leisure activities, distinguishing the effort involved in the group evaluated.

  • Correlation among sociocultural factors and self-care capabilities of
           mature adult with hypertension, in a rural area of Mexico

    • Authors: María Elena Rocha Velázquez, Ma. Laura Ruiz Paloalto, Nicolás Padilla Raygoza
      Pages: 52 - 58
      Abstract: The main objective of this work is to describe the correlation between sociocultural factors and mature adult self-care capacity in dealing with hypertension in a rural community in Mexico. A cross-sectional observational study was carried out to survey 60 patients registered in the rural community of Cerro de Ortega, State of Colima, Mexico, selected by availability with regard to the development of sociocultural factors and self-care capacity instruments. The analysis involved Pearson's r and linear regression. It was found that the participants mean age was 50.9 years, 75% of patients were women, 83.3% of them were catholic, 42% achieved primary school, 80% were married, 60% worked as housekeepers and 57% of subjects have been treated for 2 to 4 years . The scores of sociocultural factors and self-care capacity showed an r of 0.44 and a significative linear relationship (p<0.05); the same was found between scores of religion, costumes and traditions with self-care capacity (p<0.05). Sociocultural factors had significative correlation and lineal regression with self-care capacity; also, there were correlation between religion, costumes and traditions with self-care capacity. We can conclude that, among the considered sociocultural factors, the dimensions that were more associated with self-care capacity are religion, customs and traditions.

  • Perception of machismo traits of expressiveness and stress coping
           strategies in adult men in northeastern Mexico

    • Authors: Katia Cecilia Uresti Maldonado, LUZ ADRIANA OROZCO RAMIREZ, Jose Luis Ybarra Sagarduy, Ma. Consuelo Espinosa Muñoz
      Pages: 59 - 68
      Abstract: Machismo is a form of hypermasculinity whose characteristics are subject to context, culture and historical moment. The aim of this study is to determine the predictors of the perception of sexism among positive and negative expression traits associated with femininity and coping with stress (problem-focused and centered on emotion strategies) in adult men in northeastern Mexico. An empirical study was conducted using a quantitative methodology and a ex post facto retrospective design, on one group with multiple measurements, over a sample of 263 men aged 20 to 50. The results indicated a average levels in the perception of machismo among the participants and significant relationships between a greater presence of sexist behavior and less positive traits associated with femininity expressiveness, and less use of problem-focused coping strategies. The variables that predict the perception of sexist behavior in participants were two stress management strategies: a more opened and less focused on solving problems emotional expressiveness. In conclusion, despite the fact that the perception of sexism is related to the traits of expressiveness and coping with stress, only two of the coping strategies considered were predictors of the perception of machismo.

  • Live circumstances of indigenous peoples in the urban space – the case
           of León de los Aldama

    • Authors: Sophia Schnuchel
      Pages: 69 - 82
      Abstract: This work shows the presence of indigenous peoples in the Mexican state Guanajuato, with special focus on the city Leon de los Aldama. It aims at showing the reasons of internal migration as well as the the live circumstances of autochthonous people living in Leon. After a description of vernacular languages spoken in Mexico, the topic of the indigenous population in Leon will be presented. First of all, an overview documents the external history of Indomexican peoples in the area. Secondly, internal migration in Mexico, which brings autochthonous groups to Leon, will be outlined. Thirdly, the new presence of indigenous people in Leon, which began 25 years ago and increases steadily, shall be outlined. Finally, three localities in Leon, where indigenous groups live, attend school and work, will be introduced, namely the 1) Centro de Desarrollo Indígena Loyola, 2) the intercultural school Nenemi and 3) the Mixtec Community.

  • Organizational policy and corruption: the case of the government agencies

    • Authors: Rafael Salvador Espinosa Ramírez
      Pages: 83 - 91
      Abstract: Using the principal-agent approach, a theoretical model is developed, in which dishonest government officers lobby authorities (in the form of a corrupted political contribution) for getting some advantage over honest officers. The government agency authority should maximize the welfare of the civil service officers by distributing an economic compensation granted by a central government through the use of an institutional policy. The contribution scheme promotes a relevant truthful equilibrium. A larger institutional level favors honest people; a smaller institutional level favors dishonest people and the bribe they offer. This result has two opposite implications. If government is only an efficient authority, the optimal institutional policy will grant the same amount of economic compensation to all officers. On the other hand, if authority is assuming a moral role against corruption, then the government will be inclined to set the strictest institutional policy.

  • Implementation of public policies to prevent violence in the municipality
           of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua: civil society involvement through community
           leadership.

    • Authors: Abraham Paniagua Vázquez, Ignacio Camargo-González
      Pages: 92 - 108
      Abstract: The  aim of this research is to analyze the incidence of community leaders in the implementation of public policies, focused on violence prevention and based on civil society involvement. The analysis has focused on three relevant categories: i) Transparency, ii) Accountability, and iii) Governance. The priority character of this objectives is emphasized  if we consider two elements: i) Corruption, which has been identified by  Mexicans as the second major problem in the country ; and ii) a huge public investment destined to the prevention of crime in a municipality that has been overwhelmed by violence, generated by  drug cartels power struggle. Conclusions emphasize the importance of including community leaders in the integral process of public policies,  as it guarantees at least governmental legitimacy, certainty in the destination of the  public fund and strengthening of social capacities.
