University of Huelva posted this:Power supply system controlled from internet for devices connected to a lanNowadays there are devices that allow the control of devices connected to a network from the own network. The classical method to access them from a different network is the redirection of the corresponding TCP or UDP connections to local networks from the border router. The redirection requires a high level of expertise in communications to be performed. Another strategy that is often used is the creation of VPN (virtual private network). This technique allows the control of access but does not allow connections to be discriminated or the management of power supply. The proposed system allows you to control the person and the moment to access as well as the free access. The modification of these constrains can be performed in the course of an access session. In addition, the system allows the control of power supply of the device you want access to. The interface is very friendly and does not require continuous changes in the configuration of the router. The system has a local database access control and validation can be delegated to other servers using protocol validation like LDAP, IMAP, POP3, etc.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:New free online course in Translation and Interpreting in Public ServicesThe FITISPos and FITISPos e-learning groups of the University of Alcalá present an introductory MOOC course for the training of bilingual people who act as translators and interpreters in public services or in situations in which the figure of these professionals is necessary. The online course is entitled: "Get Started in Translation and Interpreting in Public Services". The main objective of this course is to work on issues related to the communication process between foreign users who are not familiar with the Spanish language and the public or private institutions that provide services to society. The course is also focused on describing and practicing the functions of the translators and interpreters who work in these areas and showing how to get to work within this booming sector. The research groups FITISPos and FITISPos -ELearning seek to reach commercial agreements with technical assistance or technical cooperation agreements with public services and public institutions (courts, police stations, hospitals, schools, town halls, etc.) or private institutions (NGOs, associations of entrepreneurs with international interests or foreign employees, banks, tourist offices, etc.).
University of Huelva posted this:New procedure for the purification of water contaminated by metals and the respective systemsThe invention solves the problems of inefficiency which usually shows the conventional passive treatment systems. The reactive fills developed for the removal of inorganic contaminants historically have focused on removing low concentrations of these (typical features of coal mining), however when these fillers are faced to high concentrations of metals (sulfur mining, uranium, industrial water waste…) quickly clogging and loss of reactivity occurs. The present invention allows the removal of metals without clogging and/or loss of reactivity. This is achieved by the use of a coarse inert material with high surface mixed with a fine-grained reactive material, so that the surface of the inert material is breaded with reactive material. Coarse fragments of inert material act as a frame, providing large pores that reduces clogging by precipitates. The small particle size of the reactive material provides a large surface area that increases its reactivity.
University of Huelva posted this:New power generation electric systemThe proposed system is characterized by the following aspects which make it unique: 1- The system is built from a number of PEM fuel cells, supplied by al least one hydrogen source. Each module include a monitoring and control subsystem, so it is possible to activate/deactivate module induividually. 2- Each module can supply a different power value. 3- The monitoring and control subsystem receives electrical signal from each modules like stack voltage, stack current and cell voltage. 4- The monitoring and control system has two levels: the first level aims to control each module (local control) and the second level is responsible for coordinate local controller. 5- The monitoring and control system is on-line accessible. 6- The control and monitoring system distributes homogeneously the operating hours between the modules when the power demand is lower than the maximum power. 7- Each module has a oxygenation/cooling subsystem which supplies oxygen to cathide and air for refrigerate the stack. 8- Each module has a hydrogen subsystem wich is the responsible for hydrogen delivery to stack at ambient pressure. 9- The hydrogen subsystem include a hydrogen purge line. 10- The Electric Power Generation System includes a simulator to reproduce the performance ogf the whole subsystem.
University of Huelva posted this:Procedure for obtaining a renewable resource of metals from acid minewater, and the respective systemsIs known in the state of the art the recovery of metals from the acid aqueous solution that contain them, generally by liquid-liquid extractions. For metals recovery at industrial scale is necessary that these metals can be recovered simultaneously by means of a single extraction step. There are several extraction reagent for this purpose, all these reagent are very expensive and the industrial process for the metal recovery (particularly for rare earth and yttrium) are very complex and finally expensive. The present procedure allows to recovery selectively metals (particularly rare earths and yttrium) by the neutralization of acid mine waters. The objective is to revalue the metal content dissolved in this waters.
University of Huelva posted this:New procedure for the genetic transformation of plant cells and kit for carrying out said methodThe strategy for transformation is extremely simple and does not involves subcloning the gene of interest in any vector. The kit is not based on specific promoters or regulatory DNA sequences, thus it can be applied to many different plant species, from unicellular microalgae to higher plant protoplasts. Since the strategy is not based on specific promoter or regulatory DNA sequences, only the marker and the gene of interest sequences are inserted in the microalgal genome, avoiding the introduction of undeserible DNA sequences in the transformant strain. This is very important given the concern that transfer of exogenous DNA through transgenesis causes in the public opinion
University of Huelva posted this:New method for manufacturing magnetic cores by powder metallurgyMagnetic cores in amorphous state are usually produced by placing together very thin amorphous ribbons from a material obtained by the melt-spinning technique. The new patented method produces the amorphous material by mechanical alloying, a traditional process in the powder metallurgy field. This technique allows a higher control on the amorphisation process and the properties of the amorphous obtained powders. These powders are then consolidated by the very quick process known as Electrical Resistance Sintering (also Electrical Discharge Consolidation/Sintering can be used). A final amorphous material, without the typical frontier between ribbons of melt spinned materials, which clearly affect properties, is obtained.

There are no available treatments to specifically reduce the risk of CAA. In this research we aim to assess brain tissue damage and cognitive impairment resulting from CAA in animal model and to investigate a novel approach to immune therapy. Methods: We have shown that nasal vaccination with a proteosome adjuvant (Protollin) that is well tolerated in humans, decreases amyloid plaques in an Alzheimer’s disease mouse model. It was recently reported that an overexpression of TGF-?1 under the control of an astrocyte promoter GFAP in mice results in CAA. TGF-?1 mice were nasally treated with Protollin on a weekly basis starting at the age of 13 months for three months. Following treatment animals were subjected for MRI and cognition analysis. Results: Here we show that nasal Protollin activates perivascular macrophage and potently decreases vascular amyloid in TGF-?1 mice. Using MRI we found that while PBS treated animals showed a significant enlargement of the lateral ventricles area, Protollin prevents further brain damage and prevents pathological changes in the blood-brain barrier. Vascular risk factors have been found to be associated with vascular dementia. Using an object recognition test and Y-maze, we found significant improvement in cognition with the Protollin treated group. Interpretation :Our study demonstrates that activation of macrophages by Protollin is a novel approach to reduce microhemorrhage, prevent stroke and improve cognition in a model of cerebral amyloid angiopathy.
