We review the past literature on status attainment in general and aspirations and expectations, in(More)
The essential oil from the leaves ofRuilopezia bracteosa was obtained by hydrodistillation, and analyzed by GC-MS. Eighteen components, which made up 99.6% of the oil were identified, the most abundant being β-myrcene (34.2%), α-pinene (24.3%), 7-epi-α-selinene (9.1%), β-pinene (8.5%) and 6,9-guaiadiene (4.4%). Antibacterial activity was tested against(More)
The essential oil of the leaves of Espeletia nana Cuatrec., obtained by hydrodistillation, was analyzed by GC-MS, which allowed the identification of 24 components, which made up 99.9% of the oil. The most abundant compounds were a-pinene (38.1%), beta-pinene (17.2%), myrcene (15.0%), spathulenol (4.2%), bicyclogermacrene (4.0%), a-zingiberene (4.0%), and(More)
We review the literature on determinants of ethnic/national self-identities and self-esteem as a prelude to examining these outcomes among a large, statistically representative sample of second generation adolescents in Madrid and Barcelona. While these psycho-social outcomes are malleable, they still represent important dimensions of immigrant adaptation(More)
Kaurenic acid (1a) is a tetracyclic diterpene that has an exocyclic double bond at delta16. Isokaurenic acid (2a) has an endocyclic delta15double bond. This compound has been isolated from Espeletia tenore (Espeletinae), a resinous plant from the Venezuelan Andes, but its occurrence is rare. In order to obtain a larger amount of 2a, the isomerization of la,(More)
We examine determinants of educational and occupational aspirations and expectations among children of immigrants in Spain on the basis of a unique data set that includes statistically representative data for foreign-origin secondary students in Madrid and Barcelona plus a sample of one-fourth of their parents. Independently collected data for both(More)
Hyptis colombiana is an aromatic shrub native to the Colombian and Venezuelan Andes. Aerial parts were collected in Mérida State at about 3100 m above sea level in February 2005, and May and October 2006. The essential oil was found to contain germacrene D and β-caryophyllene as main constituents (about 50%). The February 2005 and October 2006 oils were(More)
The hydrodistilled oil from the fruits of Bursera tomentosa, obtained in 0.2% yield, was analyzed by GC-MS. Nine components were identified, which made up 99.3% of the oil. The most abundant constituents were cis-ocimene (47.6%), n-nonane (28.2%) and germacrene-D (11.1%). The oil showed antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923),(More)
