    ABSTRACT: Solar photovoltaic systems are an alternative to the current model of power generation, supplying clean energy with little environmental impact and no significant losses associated with distribution networks. This study aims to obtain data on electricity generation in real time for a photovoltaic panel installed in the city of Lajeado, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, comparing the electric power generation of the photovoltaic panel with the solar radiation data of the city, obtained with the use of a pyranometer. Data from incident solar radiation, measured in the city, on the period of 2007–2012 were used. Comparisons with data from power generation of the photovoltaic panel and assessment of the solar potential were performed. The photovoltaic panel has an area of 16.5 m2 and was installed on the campus of UNIVATES University Center, arranged so that it faces the true north and tilted at an angle of 24°, for better utilization of solar radiation incident along the year. At the end of this phase of the study, it was obtained an average power generation of 11.0 kWh/day and efficiency of the modules in the order of 12.6%.

    ABSTRACT: Context Constipation is a very common symptom in the general population. One way of non-pharmacological treatment of constipation is through the addition of probiotics to food. Obectives The aim of this study was to evaluate de effect of the consumption of a fresh cheese, enriched with Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07 on the symptoms of constipated women. Methods A randomized controlled trial, carried out in the Basic Health Units of Guaporé's City - RS/Brazil, between january and may 2012, with 30 constipated women. The patients were randomized into two groups whom received, for 30 days, 30 g of fresh cheese enriched with Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07 (n = 15) or regular fresh cheese (n = 15). Constipation symptoms were evaluated according to ROMA III Consensus, before and after the nutritional intervention. Also, data of clinical and anthropometric characteristics of the individuals were collected. Accepted level of significance 5% (P≤0,05). Results The medium age of the studied population was 37,5±14,4 years in the intervention group and 40,8±12,8 years in the control group. After 30 days we observed that the ingestion of fresh cheese enriched with Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07 promoted benefic effects on the symptoms of strength to evacuate. Conclusion The consumption of 30g/day of a fresh cheese enriched with Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07 has beneficial effects on constipation symptoms.

    ABSTRACT: Quality of life is the subjects' perception of their status in society, permeated by culture, values and everyday life and with a view to their life goals and expectations as well as the ways of thinking about life. The study investigated the quality of life of professors of higher education community institutions that have been in operation for more than 40 years and have more than ten thousand students in the State of Rio Grande do Sul. The research, with a qualitative-quantitative cross-sectional approach was conducted in August and September 2011 using a professional profile questionnaire and the WHOQQL-BREF questionnaire, in which 203 professors participated, namely 17% of all the professors in the three institutions analyzed. When the quality of life rate was analyzed according to the teachers' education, the 22 specialists scored highest in the psychological field (72.1 ± 3.1) and lowest in the social field (69.3 ± 4.4). Among the 125 masters and the 43 PhD's, the highest scores were found in the physical domain (74.8 ± 1.3 and 75.7 ± 2.1, respectively) and the lowest in the environmental field (69.4 ±1.0 and 70.8 ± 1.8). The conclusion reached was that the quality of life of the professors was considered good in the fields analyzed. There was no significant statistical difference among them.
