Questions related to Spain
I did a cross-cultural study between Spain and Chile. The reviewers ask me to justify this selection. How would you do to justify it?
Thank you very much
I propose the discussion of two important aspects for carrying out research based on an INTEGRATIVE Mixed Methodology (MM) design in socio-educational research.
According to a systematic review of the literature that my research team conducted (Bagur et al., 2021), we were able to observe the current duality of CUANTI and CUALI approaches.
Furthermore, we concluded that most of the research that claims to make use of MM does not actually use continuous links of both methodologies throughout the research process, and therefore does not make use of INTEGRATION.
All of this leads to the present discussion of MM research design, as I would like to go deeper into these aspects and, to a greater extent, to get to know the current positions.
Thank you for your contributions.

In close partnership with Sequentia Biotech (Barcelona, Spain) we are searching out for highly-competitive research companies or University research groups involved in bacterial engineering for the development of new therapeutic probiotics to collaborate with us for an international UE-based project platform. For details, interested researchers/groups can contact me and/or Dr. Walter Sanseverino for details.
A lots of people died for COVID-19 disease. I am eager to to how many doctors died in Asian and other selective countries???
Please tell here your valuable information please.
Thank you all
Hi, I'm looking for chemical monitoring databases for soil, groundwater, sediment, drinking water, air and surface water in Spain. It seems that there are many federal and regional government and institutional sources that might be relevant but there are so many of them I don't know where to begin searching. Is there anybody out there familiar with Spain that can point me in the right direction?
we are preparing a multibeam survey on the Canary Islands and ask ourselves which GPS RTK service would allow for smooth operation near the south coast of Lanzarote. Fugro marine star is not accurate enough, we need a "real" RTK service providing positions in the centimeter accuracy level. Most preferentially we would like to catch the signals via mobile internet near the coastline via NTRIP. We would highly appreciate recommendations or shared experience for canary island surveying ;)

More and more researchers are worried about the rumours regarding the possibility of a general exclusion of articles published in MDPI journals to assess research careers. Is this happening in your country? In Spain, the discussion is already being held by several commissions in charge of assessing researchers' productivity and Cvs.
I am preparing a 5-7 hour-course about psychobiography and I would like to know how others train students in this field. Here in Spain it is unknown so I will be the one introducing the method.
My students will be studying a postgraduate level in health and clinical Psychology.
I am going to start research on people conceived through gamete donors and / or surrogacy. The study will be carried out in Spain. Could you recommend a bibliography of studies carried out in other countries or ideas on how to approach the subject? Thanks in advance
Voy a comenzar una investigación sobre personas concebidas mediante donantes de gametos y/o gestación subrogada. El estudio se realizará en España. ¿Podríais recomendarme bibliografía de estudios realizados en otros países o ideas sobre cómo enfocar el tema? Gracias por anticipado

Lahore Journal of Policy Studies
Special Issue on Covid-19
Call for Papers
We intend to take out the next issue of the Lahore Journal of Policy Studies on Covid-19. The novel Coronavirus has come as a major calamity out of the blue leading to a sudden economic halt across the world. There had been other pandemics earlier but the response was never so severe, widespread and universal. The Third World acted largely on the basis of scientific predictions and policies originating in Developed Countries without any policy based on locally grounded scientific/medical knowledge. With the high death rate reported from Italy and Spain followed in a couple of months by even higher deaths in US and UK the world was terrorized. The fast pace of statistics did not allow for a cool headed debate and reflection nor did people have any facts on which to develop some degree of understanding and make an opinion. Except for a few critical special publications, the media has been more interested in statistical reporting than any critical analyses. With the passage of time many riddles and paradoxes, have come to the fore and call for reflection. There is need to explore these riddles and paradoxes because many revelations are likely to come out of these. For instance,
· Why have there been far more deaths in the prosperous and highly developed countries of US and Britain than in the countries of the Third World
· Why have there been far more deaths in the urban areas which have more awareness and healthcare facilities compared to the backward rural areas
· Is the pandemic primarily a medical issue to be dealt with by doctors or a socioecological issue to be dealt with through political debate and policy
· What has been our experience of pandemics in the past. In India whether it was bubonic plague, Spanish flu or smallpox, in each instance the epidemic continued for many decades. What communities and what geographies were affected. What conditions brought the disease under control
· What was the role of vaccines in ending the pandemics
· What was the relation of poverty to the number of deaths and why? Was it because of hygiene or was it because of food and healthcare
· What is the relationship between our economic goals of productivity and development and the onset of disease
· Industrial agriculture including deforestation, monocultures, genetic selection and animal feed lots have greatly increased production. What is its relationship with the pandemics
· The growth of giant cities in the Third World has created new environment for the spread of disease. Why has this aspect not been highlighted in the coronavirus debate
· What is the role of globalization of commodity production, services and people in the generation and spread of pandemics
· Where has this virus come from? Has the frequency of deadly viruses like Ebola, MERS, SARS, Corona, H1N1 increased in the past few decades? Is there any common process of generation between them
· How has the pandemic changed the ecologies of work such as education, commerce, health, entertainment and hospitality
· The impact of the lockdowns on gender inequality
You may choose a topic or write generally about the impact and origin of the disease.

Lahore Journal of Policy Studies
Note: The Lahore Journal of Policy Studies is a refereed journal. The journal has a broad scope, covering national, regional and international political, economic, social and cultural issues of immediate relevance to public policy. It aims to be a forum for significant new ideas and seeks to challenge thinkers and intellectuals to policy debate. It is neither a journalistic magazine nor an overly technical one. Rather, it is a scholarly journal containing provocative, thoughtful, but well-researched writings with an educated and discerning readership in mind. It seeks originality and rigour of argument. The selection of papers will be based on topicality, originality, clarity, the extent to which they advance knowledge, understanding and application and their likely contribution towards inspiring further development, research and debate.
I conducted an SDS PAGE electrophoresis on wheat wild varieties to separate their glutenins and measure the genetic diversity of my sample. I only ran one electrophoresis. Can a genetic drift explain this low value ? The samples of T. monococcum I used are from different geographical origins and the heterozygosity found is still very low compared to other studies like the
Alvarez et al, in 2006 where they analysed 22 samples all originated from a small area in Spain ( He=0.252). How can I explain it ?

Hi, my name is Sarah-Therese Mann and I am a Master's student at the UIB in Spain. I am conducting a study about eye-witness memory and language. Therefore I am looking for native speakers of English and German. Are here any participants? It would not take long and I would appreciate your help!
Here is the survey for English native speakers:

What is intended with this question is not only to answer it with a simple argument, but everything to the contrary. Contribute everything we know about immigration, positive and negative aspects that influence our society.
Spain is a country where immigration in recent decades has increased considerably. This is due to the territorial position of the country. It is not only due to this space, but also to the standard of living that we have in Spain compared to other countries.
I have to say that many Spanish citizens have found themselves in the situation of having to emigrate to other countries in search of economic and labor survival, so we can say that immigration to other countries is potentiated in the labor aspect.
Spain has a large flow of immigrants from Africa due to its proximity. Most arrive in small boats. How can we improve their situation when they arrive to the Spanish coasts?
Hi, I am a final year student at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid ( Spain), doing my final thesis about the working-life conditions in the Nordic Countries.
Especially, I am researching about the different types of statutory entitlement to leave. However, I haven´t found in any nordic country legislation about days off work to enjoy the honeymoon after marriage.
I was wondering if you could know or even pointing me out in the direction of someone with knowledge in those Nordic labour law questions. It would be extremely appreciated.
The problem of the concept of INVASIVE EXOTIC SPECIES is in those species considered as such, which either do not have an invasive growth and propagation behaviour, or they are so naturalized and so adapted to the environment that they are already part of it, due to the very long time they have been in the place since they were imported.
This is the case of the prickly pear (Opuntia sp.) In Spain, and in this article (see attached document*), we reveal the entire historical plot of the prickly pear since 9000 BC. up to the present time, involving the Spanish monarchy, the voyages and discoveries of Colon, and the search for resources.
Opuntia ficus-indica is living in Spain for more than 500 years, do we still considering this plant as an INVASIVE one?
In Cuernavaca (México) where I live for 6 months, Nopalitos (Opuntia blades) are eaten as "alambres con queso", and are AWESOME. In Spain there is no tradition on eating nopalitos, but for 500 years Opuntia plants have been important as: (i) fruit harvesting (prickly pear fruit), (ii) demarcating fields and livestock properties, (iii) farm animal feed, and (iv) ornamental. But nowadays Opuntia plants are dying due to an insect plague.
The problem is on Dactylopius coccus, a plant-parasitic hemiptera insect whose host is prickly pear cactus (Opuntia). It is also known as grana cochinilla, cochinilla grana, nocheztli (or simply cochinilla). As an ancient Mexican tradition (see attached picture), the red-coloured carmine extracted from the females of the species has been used as a fabric dye for centuries, and even today as a colouring agent in cosmetics such as lipsticks or as a food additive (E-120). The Spanish conquistadors brought it to Spain to cultivate this cochineal but it did not work then, and now, 500 years later and taking advantage of climate change, the cochineal has found its perfect environment to survive and is destroying our prickly pears, but the institutions cannot do anything because it is still considered an INVASIVE NON-NATIVE PLANT.

The collapse of the British currency since the campaign for the Referendum on the Exit from the European Union, in 2015, when it was exchanged as 1GBP for 1.43 euro at its peak value then, has happened, with 1GBP buying roughly 1 euro now, after the failure of the UK to find an agreement with the EU .
Is it not an ideal time for the UK to join the euro-zone?
Were it to do this, it would clean its slate at once, rejoining the EU, and escaping the irrevocable recession if not depression the Bank of England says it is doomed to face with BREXIT, further aggravated by the Economic Crisis caused by Covid19, and job losses yet accelerating.
Were it do do this, it would join the "Recovery Package" opportunity and commitment, a New Deal of Europe of a magnitude not seen since the USA's New Deal of President Roosevelt.
Will the UK instead enter an era of splendid isolation and slow descent from among the Top Economies, as Spain centuries ago, when it was caught in the illusion of America's gold , and stopped developing its economic activities in new sectors?
Will we observe "retro-colonisation" of UK by:
-India (see Tata owner of Jaguar Landrover, the brand of cars which Her Majesty the Queen used to drive on her estates),
-China (nuclear investment in power production, jointly with French investors)?
-others? Russian investment in London real estate is significant, e.g....
Which economic scenarios do you envisage for the GBP and the British Economy?
A bright future, which has been promised, or an era of hardship as the post-World-War2-UK ?
The economic success of north Italian city states was accompanied by great art, which continued or functioned alongside a wealthy Catholic Church. The equal success experienced in the United Provinces (Netherlands) in the 17th century based on independence from the great powers of Spain and France and an early eastern empire, produced some of the greatest art and artists that have ever lived. Is economic success necessary for great art?
I know they do exist (Beck, Hubrich and Marcellino, 2009), so if you were working with data on annual regional cpi/ inflation data for Germany, Spain, UK or Italy - please provide a link, attach a file, etc. My dataset starts in 2003.
Not long ago, in the southeast of the Region of Murcia (Spain), windmills were used to lift water from the ground and use it for irrigation.
Do you know other examples in Mediterranean countries? I am not interested in countries with flour mills, only those used to capture water.
Thank you very much for your help
The new Education Act (LOMLOE) that is now being prepared in Spain intends to make Mathematics an optional subject. The Mathematics Institute has issued a manifest that argues about the importance of Mathematics in society, and in favour of keeping Mathematics as a compulsory subject in high school. If you agree with this, please sign the manifest at the link below (the manifest is in Spanish; I don't remember if there is an English version):

In federal or descentralized countries with great regional diversity, such as Brazil, India, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Spain, and others, should foreign service recruitment policy applies domestic regional representation when choosing new diplomats? If the answer is yes, why? What kind of benefits a regional, state, provincial representation can bring to the country's foreign policy? Does it garantee a domestic equal vision and practice on how the state will or could act in foreign policy?
A Spanish study has cast doubt on the feasibility of herd immunity as a way of tackling the coronavirus pandemic.
The study of more than 60,000 people estimates that around just 5% of the Spanish population has developed antibodies, the medical journal the Lancet reported.
Herd immunity is achieved when enough people become infected with a virus to stop its spread.
Around 70% to 90% of a population needs to be immune to protect the uninfected.
The prevalence of Covid-19 antibodies was below 3% in coastal regions, but higher in areas of Spain with widespread outbreaks, the report said.
"Despite the high impact of Covid-19 in Spain, prevalence estimates remain low and are clearly insufficient to provide herd immunity," the study's authors said in the report.
"In this situation, social distance measures and efforts to identify and isolate new cases and their contacts are imperative for future epidemic control."
The study is thought to be the largest of its kind on the coronavirus in Europe.
I am interested in different tools that have been implemented in real practice for measuring patient experience (not patient satisfaction), for instance in Spain a questionnaire called IEXPAC is widely used:
Any other options?
In a teaching world, which is becoming unpredictable right now, how can we use technology without losing our teaching capacity? what in Spain is called not falling into technocracies and being more managers than mechanics
As of June 1, 2020, the highest number of COVID-19 fatalities are in America 112,000, Brazil 36,500, United Kingdom 40,550, Spain 27,000, Italy 34,000, France 29,155, and Mexico 13,000.
India has 256,611 cases but only 7,200 deaths. China has 83,036 cases and only 4,634 deaths.
My Source as of June 8, 2020:
Is the absence of decision by UK and NL to enforce social distanciation against Covid19 (unlike China, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, USA, etc) caused by memory loss of the positive effects of proactive enforcement of social distancing by US cities in the 1918 influenza pandemic? Death rates were reduced by 50%, source:
In Spain, the Goverment give public preeliminary results about the seroprevalence study of Covid-19:
5% of seropravelence in Spain... this is aproxm. five more times that you can modeled with Corean and German information about Covid, and about the double that another study of seroprevalence with a major "n" in Galicia (Spain) using the same IC (inmunocromatography).
Do you see any wrong in the experiment desing??
Dryland ecosystems are one of the more important and vulnerable ecosystems in the world, comprising fully 40 percent of the Earth’s land surface. Moreover, the lives of billions of people depend on its conservation. However, understanding why people value (or not) these types of ecosystems requires understanding much further that they are drylands that do not provide few ecosystem services (compared to other ecosystems, this would make for another interesting question!!). I also understand that it can be a very simple question or on the contrary a very complex one. It is also globally accepted that many factors can explain this disconnection of human-dryland, such as the simply lack of water or charismatic species, or the impossibility of developing agricultural practices. However, after having studied these ecosystems (SE Spain) for more than 15 years, I believe that the roots of the lack of value that people place on drylands are much deeper than a mere categorization of types of value (new fashion of instrumental versus intrinsic versus relational values), and surely we need to understand cultural and evolutionary aspects together.
Happy to discuss further!
Could serum from patients who have overcome COVID 19 infection improve the prognosis of infected patients?
How should it be prepared?
Which dose should be administered to each patient?
Has this measure been previously tested?
Best regards from sad Spain.
Have heard a handful of anecdotes from Spain (and also now here in NYC) that HIV-infected persons on antiretroviral therapy appear to be less likely to contract Covid-19.
And, of course, as a corollary to this, I am wondering if HIV- persons taking emtricitabine-tenofovir ("PrEP") might also be.
Thirdly, there is the question of, contrary to popular presumption, HIV-infected persons due to unresolved aberrations in cell signaling or other unresolved immune defects might not advance to the most lethal extremes of infection, were they to become infected.
Best resource of data at this point, one might imagine, would be from countries in East Asia that appear to be coming out of (at least the first wave of) this. There are great community based HIV networks I am aware of in Spain, Italy, Germany, UK, others, but I hesitate to ask this of them now. But it seems important for many reasons. Tk u, Mike
What are the basic differences recover rate of coronavirus (COVID-19) Chaina and Diamond Princess faster than other countries Italy, United States, Spain, etc?
in my opnion of course, i agree with the society where person fight to be the best and get better work and position for archievent. one example is the fact that in Spain the public charges should be ocupated by women and men alike, and i dont want that men and women alike rule me, i want that the best persons rule me indifferently they being men or women.
I have recently traveled to Ireland, I was surprised with the environmental policies that exist. Citizens who do not recycle are subject to financial fines and even if they recycle, but they do not do it properly. In addition, the population is very aware of it, and knows how to do it correctly. When I arrived in Spain I realized that we do not know how to recycle and what is worse, we are not aware.
I need to consult the baptism, marriage and burial books of the Franciscan missions of Alta California to complement a study on the propagation routes of the smallpox pandemic of 1780 in the northwest of New Spain.
Now that election results in Spain are known, do you think there will be a change in Spanish policy, and what will be the effect on European countries and the rest of the world.
Following up with the previous questions, I found these specimens in the Oxfordian Ammonitico Rossos facies from the Balearic Islands, Spain. I would like to get some help identifying the genus and species of these 3 specimens.
I suspect that the second specimen, the one with primary and secondary ribs, could be a Taramelliceras.
Taking into consideration that this type of organisations not only provide credit but also impose harsh economic conditions on nations, are they still a good options for post-crisis economies? As an example we could see the difference in recovery between Spain (IMFed) and Portugal (not IMFed).
Hello everyone, I will need to use for the first time acetocarmine for DNA staining. After some searching, I couldn't find any provider selling it in Europe, so I was wondering if anyone could suggest where to buy it. Alternatively, I found several option for carmine, is it also a viable option?
I am looking for ideas on what topics I can do for 6 months (short master thesis) in Spain. Can anyone help me with the topic I can do in related with policy of sustainability, renewable energy, for aviation biofuel? What I can discover or view about this topic.
Thank you, I really appreciate it.
This plant grew next to an Opuntia on the island of Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain). It has fruits and although its stems are very strange, they are similar to those of some genera of the cactus family. There are monstrous forms of other Opuntia species, such as Opuntia monacantha. And it could be one of these forms of some of the Opuntias that grow on the islands.
Im working in a restoration plan in a mountain range in de north Madrid (Spain).
We have planned to reforest a specific area, but we think that the wild boar can destroy the plantation. How can we avoid it?
I am analyzing the vision of elderly people in Spain on the implementation of activities for their active aging and I would like to have additional information on this perspective, that of the elderly themselves
Roman system caused Murex shell to disappear, that way gently wiping out Phoenician's main industry, whose main clients were Romans. It was all about red, that precious vibrant red that marked Roman senators, and all the ones that wanted to look like them. Red as the symbol of power. Now have a look to that very interesting Spanish page, where it's explained that for a single gram of colorant, you needed at least 10.000 live shells. They say the Purple industry stopped in 1495. It's untrue. Murex colorant, due to over exploitation of the shell, had turned too expansive by 6th century. Just by the time Arabs developed a new bright red colorant, surrounded with secrets and alchemy and different names: al-kermes or Kermes or Carmin or Vermillon or Cochineal, the insect. It gave the bright red silks of Granada, the world was dreaming about, like a magical reminding of the Roman's power. That much that after Catholic Conquest of Spain, it was the arabic kermes chosen as the Spanish royal color (that's why Joaquin Cortez didn't brought to Spain the cochineal insect from Mexico). More on Murex shell: http://www.historiayarqueologia.com/2016/10/la-industria-fenicia-de-la-purpura.html
GIS is still a new tool for Architecture Schools in Spain - when we talk about how this tool could be useful before, during and after planning. I am searching for a method and also experiences that have had great results.
The warming climate of the Earth causes a multitude of secondary effects, usually adverse weather anomalies and climatic disasters. As a result of these weather anomalies and climatic cataclysms, the area of the undesignated natural environment and areas developed by man for the needs of the development of civilization, including arable land areas in the field of crop production, may gradually diminish. Every year, more and more cases of weather anomalies and climatic cataclysms are coming, which may confirm such a research thesis.
Currently (end of October / beginning of November 2018) numerous weather anomalies such as snowfall in Spain, floods in Italy, almost summer temperature in some places in Central and Eastern Europe are recorded in Europe. From year to year, more and more warm winters are recorded in many places around the globe. In addition, for several years, higher and higher annual average temperatures have been recorded. More and more areas in Africa are covered by droughts, lack of rainfall and higher heat temperatures. In some coastal locations, off the coast of the oceans, in America, in Southeast Asia, in Polynesia tornadoes appear more and more dramatic. However, in Alaska, Canada, Norway and other countries where there are glaciers in the mountains, there are fewer and fewer glaciers. In the 20th century, a significant part of these glaciers melted. does it mean that the greenhouse effect on Earth is progressing so fast and is it already an irreversible process?
In view of the above, I am asking you: Will the areas of natural environment suitable for human life decrease as a result of the progressing greenhouse effect on Earth?
Please reply. I invite you to the discussion
By 2040, according to a new report by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, the Spanish are expected to have an average lifespan of 85.8 years, outliving even the Japanese, who have long headed the global longevity tables. And outliving those of us in the UK by almost 2.5 years.
Does anyone have a suggestion why this might be in a population noted for its consumption of alcohol and tobacco?
