Abstract

En la región sierra de Ecuador, provincia de Imbabura, cantón Cotacachi, se observa una creciente población que requiere educación superior, sin embargo, la infraestructura de institutos de educación superior en la actualidad es escasa, deficiente y no cumple con los estándares educativos adecuados para el desarrollo del proceso educativo; lo que no permite que se brinde acceso a educación superior pública, gratuita, de calidad. Está situación limita el ingreso de jóvenes en edad universitaria a educación superior en el cantón provocando deserción estudiantil y migración hacia otras ciudades. A través de la definición de criterios de diseño se busca incrementar el acceso a educación superior por medio de la generación de espacios adecuados para desarrollar procesos de aprendizaje, ampliar los cupos disponibles para educación superior en el cantón Cotacachi e incorporar carreras de mayor demanda a la oferta educativa existente. Mediante una investigación predictiva que inicie con una exploración, descripción, análisis y explicación profunda de información relativa a institutos de educación superior en Ecuador que se obtendrá de organismos nacionales, provinciales, cantonales y locales así como revisión documental de recomendaciones de profesionales del sector y la revisión de proyectos existentes, se definirán los criterios para la concepción de un instituto de educación superior que tenga las características adecuadas para el desarrollo de un adecuado sistema educativo y estén acorde a la realidad socio económica y las necesidades de profesionales del cantón Cotacachi. El principal propósito del proyecto final es definir un marco de referencia que sea útil en el proceso de mejoramiento del sistema de educación superior pública y por lo tanto pueda ser un instrumento útil en el proceso de diseño y ejecución.

Influence of E-learning training on the acquisition of competences in basketball coaches in Cantabria

The main aim of this study was to analyse the influence of e-learning training on the acquisition of competences in basketball coaches in Cantabria. The current landscape of basketball coach training shows an increasing demand for innovative training models and emerging pedagogies, including e-learning-based methodologies. The study sample consisted of fifty students from these courses, all above 16 years of age (36 males, 14 females). Among them, 16% resided outside the autonomous community of Cantabria, 10% resided more than 50 km from the city of Santander, 36% between 10 and 50 km, 14% less than 10 km, and 24% resided within Santander city. Data were collected through a Google Forms survey distributed by the Cantabrian Basketball Federation to training course students. Participation was voluntary and anonymous. The survey, consisting of 56 questions, was validated by two sports and health doctors and two senior basketball coaches. The collected data were processed and analysed using Microsoft® Excel version 16.74, and the results were expressed in percentages. The analysis revealed that 24.60% of the students trained through the e-learning methodology considered themselves fully qualified as basketball coaches, contrasting with 10.98% of those trained via traditional face-to-face methodology. The results of the study provide insights into important characteristics that can be adjusted and improved within the investigated educational process. Moreover, the study concludes that e-learning training effectively qualifies basketball coaches in Cantabria.

Isoflavones Effects on Vascular and Endothelial Outcomes: How Is the Gut Microbiota Involved?

Isoflavones are a group of (poly)phenols, also defined as phytoestrogens, with chemical structures comparable with estrogen, that exert weak estrogenic effects. These phytochemical compounds have been targeted for their proven antioxidant and protective effects. Recognizing the increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases (CVD), there is a growing interest in understanding the potential cardiovascular benefits associated with these phytochemical compounds. Gut microbiota may play a key role in mediating the effects of isoflavones on vascular and endothelial functions, as it is directly implicated in isoflavones metabolism. The findings from randomized clinical trials indicate that isoflavone supplementation may exert putative effects on vascular biomarkers among healthy individuals, but not among patients affected by cardiometabolic disorders. These results might be explained by the enzymatic transformation to which isoflavones are subjected by the gut microbiota, suggesting that a diverse composition of the microbiota may determine the diverse bioavailability of these compounds. Specifically, the conversion of isoflavones in equol—a microbiota-derived metabolite—seems to differ between individuals. Further studies are needed to clarify the intricate molecular mechanisms behind these contrasting results.

Mediterranean Diet and Sleep Features: A Systematic Review of Current Evidence

The prevalence of sleep disorders, characterized by issues with quality, timing, and sleep duration is increasing globally. Among modifiable risk factors, diet quality has been suggested to influence sleep features. The Mediterranean diet is considered a landmark dietary pattern in terms of quality and effects on human health. However, dietary habits characterized by this cultural heritage should also be considered in the context of overall lifestyle behaviors, including sleep habits. This study aimed to systematically revise the literature relating to adherence to the Mediterranean diet and sleep features in observational studies. The systematic review comprised 23 reports describing the relation between adherence to the Mediterranean diet and different sleep features, including sleep quality, sleep duration, daytime sleepiness, and insomnia symptoms. The majority of the included studies were conducted in the Mediterranean basin and reported a significant association between a higher adherence to the Mediterranean diet and a lower likelihood of having poor sleep quality, inadequate sleep duration, excessive daytime sleepiness or symptoms of insomnia. Interestingly, additional studies conducted outside the Mediterranean basin showed a relationship between the adoption of a Mediterranean-type diet and sleep quality, suggesting that biological mechanisms sustaining such an association may exist. In conclusion, current evidence suggests a relationship between adhering to the Mediterranean diet and overall sleep quality and different sleep parameters. The plausible bidirectional association should be further investigated to understand whether the promotion of a healthy diet could be used as a tool to improve sleep quality.

Diagnosing Training Needs in European Tourism SMEs: The TC-NAV Project for Managing and Overcoming Virulent Crises

This research aims to gather opinions from experts in the European tourism sector regarding training needs to address severe crises, such as Covid, in Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) across five countries: Spain, Iceland, Ireland, Scotland, and Germany. This study was conducted within the scope of the European TC-NAV project, which is funded by the European Union. The ultimate goal of this project is to develop training solutions for European SMEs Most existing literature on tourism crises primarily examines the impact on destinations as a whole rather than on individual tourism enterprises. Thus, this research is both relevant and timely The methodology employed was qualitative, and data being collected using a 9-question interview guide. This guide underwent validation by experts, achieving a Cronbach's Alpha value of 0.7. In total, 30 individuals were interviewed: 5 civil servants, 9 company directors, 5 university professors, 6 researchers, and 5 entrepreneurs. Some notable findings include the importance of innovation for change, promoting sustainable tourism, fostering informal partnerships among regional companies, the essential role of government support, the benefits of flexible planning and service digitisation, and the ongoing need for training and upskilling.

Can the phenolic compounds of Manuka honey chemosensitize colon cancer stem cells? A deep insight into the effect on chemoresistance and self-renewal

Manuka honey, which is rich in pinocembrin, quercetin, naringenin, salicylic, p-coumaric, ferulic, syringic and 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acids, has been shown to have pleiotropic effects against colon cancer cells. In this study, potential chemosensitizing effects of Manuka honey against 5-Fluorouracil were investigated in colonspheres enriched with cancer stem cells (CSCs), which are responsible for chemoresistance. Results showed that 5-Fluorouracil increased when it was combined with Manuka honey by downregulating the gene expression of both ATP-binding cassette sub-family G member 2, an efflux pump and thymidylate synthase, the main target of 5-Fluorouracil which regulates the ex novo DNA synthesis. Manuka honey was associated with decreased self-renewal ability by CSCs, regulating expression of several genes in Wnt/β-catenin, Hedgehog and Notch pathways. This preliminary study opens new areas of research into the effects of natural compounds in combination with pharmaceuticals and, potentially, increase efficacy or reduce adverse effects.
