Rarely in the modern history of humans has biology played such an
important role in human affairs as it does today. In the eighteenth and
nineteenth centuries, explorers stimulated the first major advance in biology by
bringing back countless new species that Darwin, and others, put into a logical
order based on the theory of natural selection. The development of evolutionary
thinking and the clarification of the rules of genetic inheritance resulted in the
theoretical base for targeted artificial selection—an essential component of
progress in biology and agriculture....
Upper respiratory tract infections and, especially, sinusitis are frequently
encountered in the day-to-day practice of infectious disease specialists, allergists,
pediatricians, otolaryngologists, internists, and family practitioners.
The range of causative agents and available therapies and the constantly
changing spectrum of antibiotic resistance can make it difficult to select
the most appropriate course of treatment.
Dental Care of Medically Complex Patients Routine dental care (e.g., extraction, scaling and cleaning, tooth restoration, and root canal) is remarkably safe. The most common concerns regarding care of dental patients with medical disease are fear of excessive bleeding for patients on anticoagulants, infection of the heart valves and prosthetic devices from hematogenous seeding of oral flora, and cardiovascular complications resulting from vasopressors used with local anesthetics during dental treatment. Experience confirms that the risks of any of these complications are very low.
This means that services which could potentially fall within the remit of both insurance
schemes tend to be shifted to the LTC insurance because this is much cheaper. Secondly,
although the revenues and costs of all the German health funds are equalized to take account
of their respective member structures (age, gender) (Strukturausgleich), this is not the case for
the revenues and costs of the LTC funds. This leads to a high disincentive for the LTC funds
to minimize their costs.
This session is an occasion to discuss good practices in MDG achievement with regard to gender equality that can help
improve the way in which development cooperation promotes gender equality in a more systematic way while also
improving its own effectiveness and coherence in line with national and international agreements.
Achievement of such commitments is a key driver of effective development cooperation on all fronts.
The Forum on Emerging Infections was created by the Institute of Medicine
(IOM) in 1996 in response to a request from the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The purpose of
the Forum is to provide structured opportunities for leaders from government,
academia, and industry to meet and examine issues of shared concern regarding
research, prevention, detection, and management of emerging or reemerging

By 2003 an explosion in political, legislative and academic interest in the field of
trafficking and smuggling of human beings in Europe was well underway. It was
in part a reflection of the international concern regarding smuggling and trafficking
which was expressed in the United Nations Convention against Transnational
Organised Crime and two draft protocols, one to Prevent, Suppress and
Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children and the other to
combating smuggling of persons which supplement the convention adopted in
Introduction. II. Background to reform Act 36/2002 on Spanish nationality. III.
Main modiﬁcations regarding acquisition and loss of Spanish nationality. A) Relating
to the right of option. B) Relating to acquisition through residence. C) Relating to
loss of nationality: 1. Exception to loss of Spanish nationality through the “declaration
of conservation”. 2. Exception to loss of foreign nationality through non-renunciation.
D) Other modiﬁcations deriving from Act 36/2002. IV. Conclusions...
There are certain risks purchasers of real property in Mexico must consider, and while Mexican law
provides certain protections, they may be insufficient to protect buyers. Mexico’s registration system
is not as convenient or user-friendly as the U.S. system or, arguably, as reliable. Registration in many
Mexican states is decentralized, with most municipalities having their own registry, and in many
cases registries are incomplete or contain errors.
Later in this article (Sections 7 and 8) I present an outline of thisworkwhen seen through
one particular lens, namely reproductive and environmental externalities, laying stress on the
arguments that have shaped it and on the policy recommendations that have emerged from it.
The framework I develop focuses on the vast numbers of small, rural communities in the poorest
regions of the world and identifies circumstances in which population growth, poverty, and
resource degradation can be expected to feed on one another, cumulatively, over periods of time.
The information security concern regarding information disposal and media sanitization
resides not in the media but in the recorded information. The issue of media disposal and
sanitization is driven by the information placed intentionally or unintentionally on the media.
With the advanced features of today’s operating systems, electronic media used on a system
should be assumed to contain information commensurate with the security categorization of
the system’s confidentiality.
The highly specialized nature of marine mammals when compared with their terrestrial counterparts, the environment in which they live, and the impact of humans on them throughout history and at the present, have made of the scholarship on these creatures something unique in itself. Therefore, it is not surprising that many researchers have also taken a distinctive approach to their study. This volume is aimed at providing a glimpse at such diversity of views and approaches while delivering valuable information on marine mammalogy.
Throughout treatment, the health care worker should ask the patient about his or her
concerns regarding TB and adherence to the prescribed regimen. Below are
examples of questions that health care workers can use during the initial health
assessment and subsequent interactions with the patient throughout the course of
treatment. The questions below are merely a starting point. Whenever possible, the
health care worker should adapt such questions according to the patient’s age,
family situation, education level, and cultural background.
Breast cancer also elicits concerns regarding a woman’s view of herself. Many treat-
ments for cancer challenge a woman’s body image and sexuality (Oktay, 1998). “The
systemic treatment of breast cancer with chemotherapy or hormonal therapy may also
affect self-image, fertility, and libido—all important components of ‘femininity’” (p. 6).
The combined effects of breast surgery, loss of hair, decreased libido, and early meno-
pause constitute a serious threat to a woman’s self-image.
A second edition of my little work being required at the expiration of only a few months is gratifying to me,
as evidence that my views regarding the use of an Anodyne in Parturition have attracted considerable
attention. I may take this opportunity of stating, that I have never had any intention of undervaluing the merits
of others who have laboured in the field of anæsthetics, my only claim to attention consisting in the novelty of
my mode of applying the agent, by which its effects are so remarkably modified....
Both high import payments for petroleum motor fuels and concerns regarding emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are motivating interest in possible fuel substitutes. Petroleum products derived from conventional crude oil constitute more than 50 percent of end-use energy deliveries in the United States and more than 95 percent
Those who have denied the reality of moral distinctions, may be ranked among the disingenuous disputants;
nor is it conceivable, that any human creature could ever seriously believe, that all characters and actions were
alike entitled to the affection and regard of everyone.
In the past decade, the radial artery has frequently been used for coronary bypass surgery
despite concern regarding the possibility of graft spasm. Graft patency is a key
predictor of long-term survival. We therefore sought to determine the relative patency
rate of radial-artery and saphenous-vein grafts in a randomized trial in which we controlled
for bias in the selection of patients and vessels.
We enrolled 561 patients at 13 centers. The left internal thoracic artery was used to bypass
the anterior circulation....
