International Academy of Science, Humanities and Arts, IASHA e.V. Freiburg, Deutschland The JOSHA Demetrios Project With the July 2017 issue, JOSHA is starting the Demetrios Project. We chose Demetrios of Phaleron, a student of Theophrastus and most probably of Aristotle, as the name patron of our project. Demetrios was instrumental in establishing the ancient Library of Alexandria, probably the largest and most significant library of the ancient world covering all aspects of Science, Humanities and the Arts in many different languages. It is our objective to open up JOSHA as a universally accessible, open access library to all languages and countries. JOSHA will focus initially on publishing and provide open-access to textbooks in any field of Science, Humanities and the Arts, to students and readers worldwide. JOSHA will publish textbooks in any language after appropriate peer review by experts in the field knowledgeable of the respective language.

In questo articolo viene trattata, in via esclusiva, la struttura di un tipico arrangiamento jazz, fornendo indicazioni riguardanti, fondamentalmente, le metodologie di scrittura. Proponiamo, come modello, un semplice arrangiamento di “Giant Steps”, rinomata composizione di Coltrane, adatto ad una formazione di medie dimensioni. L’organico consiste di sette elementi in tutto: tromba, sassofoni contralto e tenore, trombone, pianoforte, contrabbasso, batteria. Le varie tecniche di arrangiamento, quali parallelismo diatonico e tonicizzazione, vengono in questa sede menzionate ma non discusse. Infatti, ci limiteremo a palesare, sezione per sezione, le strategie adoperate al fine d’ottenere il risultato desiderato. In this paper we exclusively discuss the structure of a typical jazz arrangement, providing some indications concerning, predominantly, the writing methodologies.

Architecture and design dominate the 5th issue of JOSHA. Dr Bajçinovci, from the University of Pristine in Kosovo, published 4 new architectural textbooks. The JOSHA editorial team attended the Frankfurt Book Fair, taking part from the 11th to the 15th of October. The participation in the fair was extremely successful, it was a really interesting and important time for the whole team and gave us the opportunity to share our intentions and ideas with people from all around the world.We established great contacts with publishers from Iran, Georgia and Colombia and managed to inspire them with the great vision of making literature, textbooks and children's books available for all visitors of the JOSHA website. In the section of Medicine, Dr Gonzales et.al., from the Universidad Industrial de Santander, Colombia, published an original article in Spanish describing urinary tract infection (UTI) as a marker of poor outcome in children with severe neutropenia following chemotherapy.

Urinary Tract Infection As A Predictor Of Poor Prognosis In Pediatric Patients With Severe Febrile Neutropenia Related To Chemotherapy

The diminished inflammatory response in patients with febrile neutropenia secondary to chemotherapy makes it hard to discard a urinary tract infection based solely on the physical evaluation of the patient and basic urine laboratory tests. This could lead to false negative results with serious consequences to the patients. Objective: To define if the urinary tract infection is a high-risk predictor of severe complications in the pediatric patient with febrile neutropenia-related with chemotherapy and to establish the diagnostic significance of normal urine sediment in the initial study. Methods: A Cross-sectional study of diagnostic technology. We included children with ages from 2 to 18 years old, with severe febrile neutropenia related to chemotherapy, we compared patients with and without urinary tract infection and evaluated poor prognosis outcomes and analyzed the diagnostic efficiency of urinalysis.

I am different. Am I different?

I am different. Am I different? Although the integration of children with intellectual disabilities is improving constantly, educational materials are still lacking for the youngest age groups with the aim to introduce the idea of intellectual disabilities, and to show them that some of their peers, even though different from what we call average, are still organic and valuable members of the community. With my comic, I hope to give parents a tool to start conversations with kindergarten-age children to sensitize them to the topic and to promote openness towards children with intellectual disabilities. This project is in it's early stage, but I hope to have the opportunity to dedicate entire books to the topic in the future.
