These guidelines have been developed to help ensure that, in all research sponsored by the
Aboriginal Women’s Health Research Program, appropriate respect is given to the cultures,
languages, knowledge and values of Aboriginal peoples’ legitimate knowledge.
These guidelines represent the standard of best practice adopted by the Saskatoon Aboriginal
Women’s Health Research Advisory Committee.
The eﬀect of HNC on air quality is measured using hourly air pollution records from monitoring
stations. Pollution levels are compared before and after the restrictions for ﬁve major pollutants
with levels in previous years acting as a comparison group to control for seasonal variation. The
analysis controls for possible confounding factors by restricting the sample to a relatively narrow
time window around the implementation of HNC and by using a regression discontinuity design.
Across pollutants and speciﬁcations there is no evidence that the program has improved air quality.
We assess some stylised facts on long-term interest rates, using weekly and daily data.
Then we explore how these events were interpreted in capital markets by reviewing
weekly notes and newsletters of four major investment banks for 2002, and we
provide a chronology of major fiscal policy events throughout the year.
Charles Kingsley makes this point in his 1873 lecture “Nausicaa in London: Or,
the Lower Education of Woman,” in which he quotes the passage in The Odyssey in
which Nausicaa plays ball with her female companions on the beach(62). J. Moyr
Smith makes this explicit with regard to Greek clothing in his book Ancient Greek
Female Costume in 1882: “Though more fully clad in most parts of Greece than in
Sparta, the costume of the young girls and women was such as allowed the body to
develop its natural beauty, and permitted a graceful freedom of motion” (17)....
OPP has reached out with Public Service Announcements (PSAs) on Spanish-language radio
stations to educate parents about the hazards of bringing pesticide residues home and is working
with migrant and worker advocates, states, and farm groups on ways to encourage parents to
send their children to school and not bring them to the fields where the parents work.
Although poor mental health has often been correlated with poor
educational attainment and/or dropping out of education, there
have been few longitudinal studies on this subject. In this paper,
we investigate this issue using a recent longitudinal study of young
people in England. England is a very interesting country to under-
take such an investigation because both poor mental health and a
high drop-out rate of young people are known to be important by
The Physicians’ Health Study II, which included more than 14,000 male physicians aged 50
or older, found that neither vitamin E nor vitamin C supplements reduced the risk of major
cardiovascular events (heart attack, stroke, or death from cardiovascular disease), cancer,
or cataracts. In fact, vitamin E supplements were associated with an increased risk of
hemorrhagic stroke in this study.
The physical, social and intellectual development of
children from conception to the end of adolescence
requires an environment that is both protected and
protective of their health. A growing number of dis-
eases in children are linked to unsafe environments.
Prenatal and early life exposures, including diet, are
associated with child health and human development
and predispose to late adult effects. Thus, the INMA
project is based on three main rationales.
First, exposure to environmental pollutants through
air, water and food is worldwide.
or insufficient. This is attributable, in large part, to differences in the types of interventions and, subsequently, in the mix of results. Looking closely within categories of design features, however, the following specific design features seemed to improve comprehension for low-health-literacy populations in one or a few studies: (1) presenting essential information by itself (i.e., information on hospital death rates without other distracting information, such as information on consumer satisfaction); (2) presenting essential information first (i.e.
The chapters in this book reflect leading edge ideas, reflections and observations. Even
though the modern era of sleep research evolved from Aserinksky’s observations of
rapid eye movements in the sleep of babies, most work is nonetheless done in adults.
There is much less formal work done in youngsters and virtually none in utero and
pregnancy itself is virtually unexplored. So, Dr Miller et al’s chapter reviewing sleep in
pregnancy is particularly welcome as it incorporates current thinking in how disordered
sleep impacts other adult pathological processes.
The first report of a quantitative risk evaluation applied to health goes back to Laplace, in the
late eighteenth century, which calculated the probability of death among people with and
without vaccination for smallpox. With Pasteur's studies in the late nineteenth century, it was
possible to use the tools of statistics to evaluate the factors related to communicable diseases,
giving birth to the concept of epidemiological risk (Covello; Munpower, 1985, Czeresnia, 2004).
Ownership rates across all age groups increased between 1985 and 2003. Again, this is a well-
documented and understood change that has been driven by a number of economic factors,
including, but not limited to, falling interest rates, rising standards of living, public policies
helping low- and middle-income families afford home ownership.
Among the elderly population, the ownership rate for population 85 and over exhibited the
highest increase – i.e., 16 percentage points. Data show that the ownership rate peaks at the
age 62 to 74.
Direct Marketing allows you to personalize and customize a message to different persons and groups at
a specific time. The most popular forms are direct mail and e-mail marketing. Direct marketing is perhaps
the most effective form of promotion because you have total control over what message you send, who
receives the message, and when it is received. You can create general direct marketing pieces that go to
a mass audience, such as an invitation, or specific marketing pieces that go to a target audience, such as
Ideally a screening test should detect all clinically significant prostate cancers and not
benign pathologies. It has been normal practice that men who are found to have an
abnormal serum PSA level should have a prostate biopsy. For example, the UK Prostate
Cancer Risk Management Programme (PCRMP) states “if your PSA is definitely raised, a
prostate biopsy is required to determine whether cancer is present” The justification for
performing biopsy in men with an abnormal PSA is that they are at high risk of prostate
In the Christian tradition, the doctrine of ‘just war’ has evolved throughout the last 1,700
years, originating with St. Augustine and later significantly shaped by St Thomas Aquinas,
both of whom developed ideas of the Greek philosopher Aristotle and the Roman philosopher
Saint Augustine (354-430) served as Bishop of Hippo for 34 years. His idea of just
war has two foundations. The first, owing much to the Eastern religious traditions, is that in
all things a person should not act out of selfish considerations.
One factor that discourages the use of new organizational techniques is the dependence of email clients,
legacy file systems, and other applications on their own independent hierarchical structures. We agree with
Boardman [Boardman02] that folder structures should be integrated – in our case, also integrated with our
more flexible collection structure.
Reporting tools with appropriate visualization are another class of very useful apps. A simple query based
tool can be remarkably insightful and useful from “how I spend my time” to “count and space used” by
In order to maintain the integrity of the community, we report observed or
suspected violations of this code of ethics with a spirit of fairness, honesty,
and respect for the rights of others. Those who report alleged misconduct and
those against whom allegations are reported are afforded all rights provided by
University policies as well as all applicable state and federal laws. Those who
are found to have violated this code will be subject to appropriate disciplinary
action, up to and including expulsion, termination of employment, or
termination of relationship.
Project, IT, and change management are not entirely distinct disciplines or methodolo-
gies. The concepts, activities, and outputs in one discipline have parallel—and some-
times identical—features in the other two. We argue that to optimally plan and execute
HIT projects in HDOs requires all three adopted in concert. In this book, we combined
these standards and best practices to create an integrated project, IT, and change man-
Success with HIT projects is never a guarantee.
The International Master’s Program in the Economics of Culture: Policy,
Government and Management is organized by CEIS- Centre for Economic and
International Studies, University of Rome “Tor Vergata” in cooperation with
BAICR - Consortium of Cultural Institution.
The Master's program offers a training course based on transmission of
knowledge and experience targeted at a new social, economic and cultural
context. It provides an overview of the "culture system", of management and
design of products and cultural activities.
The results of scenario S4 are presented in relative terms to scenario S3, i.e. the baseline
scenario in year 2020. Therefore, this analysis isolates the effects of the abolition of the milk
quota system in the EU-27 on specific economic indicators at MS and regional level. Key
results of scenario S4 are that milk production increases by about 4.4% in the EU-27, and EU
raw milk prices decline by 10%. Production of butter, skimmed and whole milk powder
would increase by 5-6% while their prices would decline by about 6-7%. The production
of cheese and fresh milk products...
