AUTHORS: Yanet González Reyes, Sonia Noemi González Benítez, Dario Javier Guerrero Vaca, Fanny Rocío Gavilanes Manzano, Jaqueline Elizabeth Balseca Castro, María de los Ángeles Rodríguez Cevallos.

3. TITLE: Textual comprehension and its treatment in Primary Education. AUTHORS: Zismey Martínez Fabre, Mary Mag Pastrana de la Paz, Yarilys Reyes Rodríguez, Nancy Milián Fragela, Azariel de los Ángeles Manchón Barrabí.

However, there are shortcomings in  the treatment of conscious reading, as well as poor development of strategies with a cognitive-communicative and sociocultural approach that allow the achievement of this purpose. There are many investigations carried out in this regard, but there are still difficulties that have not been solved. This work is then aimed at proposing varied, innovative, attractive and practical activities (preparation of worksheets, instructions, wall journals, festivals, among others), which contribute to the preparation of teachers to work with textual comprehension.

52. TITLE: Educational aspects and their impact on the capacity of innovation of nations. AUTHORS: Antonio Favila Tello, América Ivonne Zamora Torres. ABSTRACT: This paper seeks to address the attention toward the relationship between the educational characteristics of nations and their innovative capacity, from an empirical approach. This analysis is based on the hypothesis that the innovative capacity of the selected countries is determined by their spending on education, the quality of their basic education, their number of graduates in science and engineering, their spending on Research and Development (R & D) and the quality of their universities. This relationship is tested through a Generalized Linear Model. The results suggest that the independent variables with the greatest explanatory power are spending on R & D and the quality of universities.

54. TITLE: Anthropocene and climate change: the absence of the common in activities and human habits that make up the environment. AUTHORS: Sandra Baquedano Jer, Claudia Donoso Sabando. ABSTRACT: The disproportionate impact of human action on the composition of the environment staged the idea that we would be immersed in a new geological epoch: the Anthropocene. In a journey through the different phases of its development, we see the supremacy of the personal interests of groups of our species to the detriment of the others; a tendency that becomes massive and radicalizes in the dynamics of exclusion at the level of intra and extra-human spheres, developed from the possessive market society. By continuing to prioritize this modus operandi, even in agreements that seek to confront it, the notion of the common is explored in this article to claim, from its environmental implications, another relationship with nature, different from the prevailing one. KEY WORDS: Anthropocene, climate change, environment, common, nature.

55. TITLE: Preliminaries to design a plan of training and awareness in cyber-security: Differentiating knowledge, habits and perceptions of users of different ages. AUTHORS: Ramón Ventura Roque Hernández, Frida Carmina Caballero Rico, Abraham Rogelio del Carmen de la Peña. ABSTRACT: This paper presents a research that compared knowledge, habits, and perceptions about information security between people younger than 35 years and people 35 years or older. This comparison was performed to elicit their requirements for a training and awareness program. 71 non-professional users of computer systems were surveyed. T and Chi-squared tests were performed to establish significant differences.  Young people perceived they were more knowledgeable in Information Systems, Virus and Cyber-Security. They also had better passwords and a low level of concern about information theft. Young people were more likely to install illegal software in their computers than older people. We conclude that it is important to promote training and awareness in both groups taking into consideration their particular needs. KEY WORDS: information security, Education, users, habits, perceptions.

56. TITLE: The “nostalgic pathos”: the Cuba of Sigfredo Ariel. AUTHOR: Liuvan Herrera Carpio. ABSTRACT: The study analyzes the poetry of Sigfredo Ariel (1987-2011) through the representation of what could be called a mythical archetype, where Cuban history is treated as a tense confluence of two temporalities: a mythical one referred to the representation of the nation in an act of literary perdurability and, another historical one, related to the finite. The analysis of the theme of "nostalgic pathos" shows subtopics such as the historical destruction through the durability of culture; the lost and recoverable spaces through the mechanism of music; the (re) semantization in the nomenclature of these Caribbean spaces and the recreation of life passages of high voices of Cuban poetry - Julián del Casal, Dulce María Loynaz - and Spanish -Luis Cernuda-.  KEY WORDS: Literature, Sigfredo Ariel, Cuban poetry, nostalgic pathos.

57. TITLE: Design, validation and analysis of the reliability of a visual inspection tool for assessing tire wear. Case study.  AUTHORS: Alex Giovanny Tenicota García, Stalin Eduardo Nuela Sevilla, Cristian David Redrobán Dillón, Ángel Daniel Larrea Moreano, Edisson Fernando Calderón Freire, Cesar Daniel Arregui Toro. ABSTRACT: The lack of instruments and technical requirements in the processes of collection and dumping of solid waste is a serious social problem. In this context, the systematic assessment of collection trucks is an essential factor. The results of the design, validation and analysis of the reliability of a tire wear inspection instrument for waste collection trucks are presented. To evaluate content validity, the Delphy method was applied and the agreement between experts was assessed using the Kendall coefficient. The factorial analysis by main components was carried out in order to evaluate the construct validity. KEY WORDS: instrument design, instrument validation, instrument reliability, visual inspection of tire wear, truck tires, solid waste collection.      

58. TITLE: Contract management in the engineering projects of integrated management. AUTHORS: Laura María Santalla Rodríguez, Roberto Delgado Víctore, Rosa María Méndez Pérez, Alicia Espinosa Gronzo, Jefrey Blanco González. ABSTRACT: The infrastructure of a country is developed through investment projects in the construction sector, being the "turnkey" method one of the most widespread at the international level. Within this framework, the Integrated Project Management (DIP) is applied, where the contracting process regulates the physical, economic and time requirements of the project. For this reason, the objective of the research is to propose a solution for the management of the contracts in the DIP between the interested parties, supported in the information systems. As a result, a procedure was obtained that allows the project to be executed in parallel with the DIP and the contracting process. KEY WORDS: project management, contract, informational system.

59. TITLE: The Immanence of Information and Labor. AUTHORS: Jaime F. Cárdenas-García, Bruno Soria de Mesa, Diego Romero Castro. ABSTRACT: The objective of this article is to define information so as to allow its discovery as an element in any labor process, emphasizing its material nature and permitting the extrapolation and use of the concept of information as a physical/material entity, with corresponding attributes as any other physical/material object, leading to the discovery that information content is immanent in the exertion of human labor in the form of concrete use values and abstract labor; perspective which allows a fundamental differentiation between the industrial age and the information age. A result that allows exploration of the impact that such an approach provides in the exploitation of labor before and after the information age, illustrated using several examples. KEY WORDS: Information, labor, materiality of labor, industrial age, information age.
