  • Nutritional profile of different plant tissues and fruits of Chamal palm
           (Dioon edule)

    • Authors: Candy Carranza Álvarez, María Luisa Carrillo Inungaray
      Abstract: Content of Fe and Mn in leaves and stems, and in seeds macronutrients were determined in Dion edule (chamal). Chamal is a palm belonging to cycads, used as an ornamental plant and seeds as a substitute for corn for human consumption in some indigenous communities in Huasteca Potosina called xi'oi. Concentration of Fe and Mn were evaluated in stems, leaves and seeds by atomic absorption spectrophotometry to determine micronutrients relationship in the whole plant and its translocation to seed. Sand moisture content, ash, protein, fat and carbohydrates, was determined only in seeds according to official proximal chemical analysis techniques for food. Concentrations of Fe and Mn were higher in leaves than in stem. Regarding macronutrient content in seeds was found D. edule they contain 14.67% moisture, 20.65% protein, 3.21% lipids and 60.69% carbohydrates. Results show that seeds nutrient content of D. edule is similar to dry-bean and greater than corn, which are a suitable source of Fe and Mn therefore constitute an alternative to prepare nutritious food source.

  • In situ characterization of morphological diversity of wild pepper Pico de
           paloma (Capsicum frutescens L.) in Tabasco, Mexico

    • Authors: Efraín de la Cruz-Lázaro, César Márquez Quiroz, Rodolfo Osorio Osorio, Pablo Preciado Rangel, Cándido Márquez Hernández
      Abstract: Chili pepper is currently one of the most important vegetable crops worldwide. The objective of this work was to carry out the in situ collection and characterization of the morphological diversity of the dove’s beak wild chili pepper (Capsicum frutescens L.) in the state of Tabasco, Mexico. We collected 66 samples in the field in 2014, and we recorded in situ data of 25 of plant, flower, and fruit variables. A principal component (PC) and cluster analysis were conducted on the 12 variables with the highest descriptive values. The first three PC explained 52.47 % of the total variation between collections; the variables that contributed most to the variation were: were leaf length and width, plant height, plant width, stem diameter, fruit length, and fruit weight. Through cluster analysis, four groups were formed in the dendrogram of the selected variables.

  • Kinetics of ruminal in vitro degradation of fermented apple pomace and
           corn stover diet in sheep

    • Authors: Alberto Muro Reyes, Claudio Arzola Álvarez, Carlos Rodríguez Muela, Agustín Corral Luna, Héctor Gutiérrez-Bañuelos, Esperanza Herrera Torres, Francisco Javier Gutiérrez Piña, Alejandro Espinoza Canales
      Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate the degradability of fermented apple pomace as protein concentrate in the rumen by measuring in vitro gas production of four diets based on corn stubble as fodder and mixtures of different proportions of fermented apple pomace and cottonseed meal in the concentrate. The degradability kinetics parameters showed a linear trend for A (p < 0.05). We conclude that fermented apple pomace, when combined with corn stubble in substitution of cottonseed meal, has a negative effect on fermentation patterns in terms of gas production from the diet, delaying the average time for gas production, and the production rate affects the ruminal degradability of feed in sheep.

  • Fuzzy control applied to water distribution systems with a view to
           reducing the waste of water and energy

    • Authors: José Kleber Costa de Oliveira, Geraldo de Araújo Moura, Kenny Rogers da Silva Henriques, Simplício Arnaud da Silva, Heber Pimentel Gomes
      Abstract: This paper presents an application of fuzzy control technique in order to control pressure at entrance of a Water Distribution Pilot Network (RPDA, for its acronym in spanish), mesh with several points of consumption. Same is pressurized by a pump and motor assembly has power variation, which makes it difficult to stabilize control. Fuzzy controller implemented in system selects an optimum condition of operation regarding pressures available and engine output while maintaining pressure for network to meet demand. Evaluation of operating system energy gain with controller action was performed in comparison with operating system without control. Based on these results, fuzzy controller was satisfactory in controlling operating pressure during operation of distribution network.

  • Promoción de la actividad física en niños del norte de México:
           efectividad de una intervención educativa

    • Authors: Rene Urquidez-Romero, Daniela Ramírez-Neri, Arnulfo Ramos-Jiménez, Alejandra Rodriguez-Tadeo, Abraham Wall Medrano, Beatriz A. Díaz-Torres, Gabriel Medrano-Donlucas, Trinidad Quizán-Plata, Julián Esparza-Romero
      Abstract: La epidemia de obesidad infantil ha motivado la implementación de intervenciones en actividad física. El objetivo de este estudio fue conocer el efecto de una intervención educativa sobre el patrón y los conocimientos de actividad física (AF) en niños en edad escolar de 6–8 años del norte de México. Se empleó un diseño clínico aleatorizado y controlado. Participaron 6 escuelas primarias: 3 escuelas de intervención (n = 80) y 3 de no intervención (n = 79). Se evaluó su antropometría (peso, talla e IMC/edad) y se registró el tipo y frecuencia semanal de la práctica de AF, antes y después de la intervención. Los grupos no mostraron diferencias antropométricas al inicio del programa. Los niños asignados a la intervención no solo mejoraron su conocimiento sobre AF recreativa (p = 0.03), sino que también incrementaron la práctica de caminar (+23%), bailar (+19%) y jugar futbol (+19%) (p ≤ 0.05). El programa educativo tuvo un efecto positivo sobre la participación y el conocimiento de las actividades recreativas de los niños.

  • Physical activity promotion in children from northern Mexico:
           effectiveness of an early educational intervention program

    • Authors: Lenin Tlamatini Barajas Pineda, José Encarnación Del Río Valdivia, Adriana Isabel Andrade Sanchez, Pedro Julián Flores Moreno, Ciria Margarita Salazar C., Isela Guadalupe Ramos Carranza
      Abstract: The childhood obesity epidemic has motivated the implementation of physical activity (PA) intervention programs. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of an educational intervention program on the pattern and knowledge of physical activity in 6–8 year old school children in northern Mexico. A randomly controlled clinical design was employed, involving 6 elementary schools: 3 schools running the intervention program (n = 80) and 3 controls (n = 79). Anthropometry (weight, height and BMI/age) was evaluated, and the type and frequency of weekly practice of PA was recorded before and after the intervention. Anthropometric measurements were similar among all the groups at the beginning of the program. Children assigned to the intervention not only improved their knowledge about recreational PA (p = 0.03) but also increased their practice of walking (+23%), dancing (+19%), and playing soccer (+19%), (p ≤ 0.05). The educational program had a positive effect on participation and knowledge of the recreational activities of children.

  • Knowledge, beliefs, and perceptions of mexican university students on
           early childhood cavities

    • Authors: Luz Elena Carlos Medrano, Jesús Alberto Luengo Fereira, Iovanna Toscano García, Ana Paula Luévano Bueno, Minerva Anaya Álvarez
      Abstract: The promotion of oral health in the early years of life is important to promote well-being and prevent early childhood cavities. The aim of this work was to determine the level of knowledge, beliefs, and perceptions of a group of Mexican university students in the area of health on early childhood cavities. A questionnaire was applied to students (N = 515) of the tenth semester of the degrees of Nursing, Medicine, and Dentistry based on the "Health professional’s guide to pediatric oral health management, "Guide for oral health risk assessment training" and "Dental Beliefs Scale N". The x2 test was used to analyze the association of variables among students. Of the total respondents, 80.7% scored regular knowledge, 13.3% good, and 6% poor. Association was observed in the belief of knowing how to treat problems of tooth decay (x2 = 0.003, p < 0.05), how to perform oral hygiene on children (x2 = 0.025, p < 0.05) and in perception between the information and bachelor’s degree (x2 = 0.012, p < 0.05). Educational programs in the area of health must find ways to introduce topics on best practices in child oral health, particularly those related to dental cavities and early childhood cavities.

  • The Soft Systems Methodology and the Viable System Model to improve
           mexican tourist supply regarding chinese consumers

    • Authors: Tanya Arenas Reséndiz, Ricardo Tejeida Padilla, Oswaldo Morales Matamoros, Ana Lilia Coria Páez, Isaías Badillo Piña
      Abstract: Using Soft Systems Methodology (SSM), the Chinese Outbound Market System is defined, and improvements to Mexican Tourist Supply regarding Chinese consumers are set based on cybersystems principles. An interpretation of the system is given, and the recursive levels, interrelations, and conflicts are determined; interactions between factors are interpreted. By applying Viable Systems Model precepts, Relevant Subsystems required for viability are specified. Optimum systemic integration at the collective level to improve Mexican tourist supply regarding Chinese consumers is detailed. Also, individual attributes that will lead to complementarity of interrelations for an evolution of the overall system are listed due to their relevance for stimulating Mexican tourist supply consumption by the Chinese outbound market.

  • Fuzzy sets applied to create multidimensional indexes. An approach to
           measure the quality of employment

    • Authors: Ivan Alejandro Salas Durazo, Lucio Flores Payan
      Abstract: In this paper we compare the analytical implications of two indices to quantify the quality of employment, one synthetic and one based on fuzzy sets. Previous studies emphasize the difficulty of quantifying this concept because it is based on multidimensionality and uncertainty, and lacks an economic backup theory to support its measurement. To execute the comparison, we use an econometric model related to human capital theory, making use of microdata from the Mexican National Survey of Occupation and Employment in the first quarter of 2015. The main discovery is related to the use of fuzzy sets to achieve a more accurate measurement of the quality of employment because it is based on the creation of a continuous data universe and the capacity of handling a larger number of variables.

  • Jaripeos Purépechas: Indigenous bull riding in Wendell, North
           Carolina, United States

    • Authors: Casimiro Leco Tomás
      Abstract: We analyze the historic, symbolic, and cultural meaning of jaripeo (bull-riding) practiced in the United States by the indigenous purhepecha who originate from Cheran, Michoacan, Mexico. We consider the “uses”, traditions, and customs that have been recently taken up again, and brought from the community of origin to the other side, inside their cultural baggage. Bull-riding events are carried out on special occasions to show their ethnic identity.
