ABSTRACTThis study aimed to compare the offensive sequences that resulted in goals in the group stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup according to teams’ status: eliminated versus qualified for the knockout phase. Successful offensive sequences performed in the group stage by eliminated (n = 39) and qualified teams (n = 83) were notated post-event using an adapted version of the Offensive Sequences Characterisation System, which includes simple and composite performance indicators. Magnitude-based in...
O topico da maldicao de Ham foi um instrumento central na construcao do pensamento europeu sobre a alteridade do africano e, em particular, como estrategia justificativa para a escravidao e o trafico atlântico. A regiao centro-ocidental do continente africano foi, ao mesmo tempo, a regiao mais intensamente envolvida no trafico de escravos e aquela onde a relacao cultural com a Europa se revelou mais duradoura. No estudo presente analisa-se o uso do topos da maldicao de Ham na literatura missiona...
AbstractThe purpose of this study was twofold: (1) to analyse the influence of the level of competition (First and Second Divisions) on the magnitude of home advantage (HA) in Portuguese futsal; (2) to examine whether the HA has changed over the recent years in Portugal. Data from 6.558 matches contested in First (n = 2.002) and Second (n = 4.556) Divisions of Portuguese futsal over the last 11 seasons (from 2006–07 to 2016–17) were collected and analysed. The mean values of HA were significantl...
O cristianismo constitui uma das principais marcas da presenca europeia no espaco cultural da Africa Central. Desde o batismo do soberano de Mbanza Kongo, ocorrido em 1491, simbolos, rituais, praticas cerimoniais foram incorporadas em algumas sociedades, ao ponto de alguns autores falarem de um “cristianismo africano”. O presente texto debruca-se sobre tres guias para a acao missionaria elaborados por religiosos capuchinhos que passaram pela regiao entre o ultimo quartel do seculo XVII e meados ...
This study aimed to examine the influence of level of competition (amateur, semi-professional and professional) on the magnitude of home advantage (HA) in Portuguese football, and to verify whether the HA has changed over time. Archival data from 32,400 matches contested in the three levels of competition over 11 seasons (from 2005/2006 to 2015/2016) were analysed. HA was quantified each season for each league as the number of points won at home expressed as a percentage of all points won at hom...

In the present work, bar adsorptive microextraction using miniaturized devices (7.5 × 3.0 mm) coated with suitable sorbent phases, combined with microliquid desorption (100 μL) followed by high-performance liquid chromatography with diode array detection (BAμE-μLD/HPLC-DAD), is proposed for the determination of trace level of six pharmaceuticals (furosemide, mebeverine, ketoprofen, naproxen, diclofenac and mefenamic acid) in environmental water and urine matrices. By comparing ten distinct sorbe...

Abstract In this work, polyurethane-based (PU) devices having cylindrical geometry soaked with suitable organic solvents are proposed for microextraction analysis. This novel analytical approach (PU microextraction; PUμE) operates under the floating sampling technology for extraction, followed by mechanical compression using a manual syringe for back-extraction. To test the performance of the PUμE method, two series of priority contaminants were used as model compounds (group #1: metalaxyl-M, pe...
This study aimed to investigate main and interaction effects of situational (competition phase, match location, match status and match period), individual (penalty taker’s footedness, playing position, and age difference to the goalkeeper), and performance factors (shot direction and goalkeeper’s action) on penalty kick outcome in UEFA Champions and Europa leagues. Data were collected from soccer Internet sites and TV broadcasts during five consecutive seasons (from 2010-2011 to 2014-2015). A to...
