  • Education is an important tool in the fight against HIV/AIDS. And while most schools are welcoming to children, some schools fail to provide the necessary protection for children to flourish and, in fact, may expose young people – especially girls – to violence. School cultures can contribute to gender violence. Often, gender stereotypes and inequities abound in the classroom, where different behaviours and roles are expected from girls and boys. Gender-based school violence takes many forms.

  • Satellite Communication can be an effective strategy to meet this need in a technology-supported, cost-effective and time-efficient manner. This is evident from the observation of Geray et al. (2007) who conducted a study to understand the level of actual exposure and the types of young people exposed to a global media campaign to promote HIV prevention among 16- to 25-year-olds by MTV programme “Staying Alive,” in 2002.

  • Although passive exposure to tobacco smoke has been linked to a number of health problems, it is unresolved whether it alters breast cancer risk. Most, but not all, studies that compared women who were passively exposed to tobacco smoke to women with no exposure to tobacco smoke reported an association of passive smoking with an increased risk of breast cancer. Only two of these studies showed a “dose- relationship”, where an increase in breast cancer risk was related to more tobacco smoke exposure.

  • Useful as it is however, the NCI Metathesaurus is not well suited to serve as a coding nomenclature1 . The hierarchies of the NCI terminology in NCI Metathesaurus are not true IS_A hierarchies, for example. The NCI Thésaurus, which became operational in late 2001, is designed to address this need. It is intended for NCI offices and divisions to use the Thésaurus as a source of codes associated with terminology concepts to annotate data and other information artifacts and facilitate information retrieval.

  • Sociology is a curious discipline. Its objects of attention are both the taken-for-granted and the exceptional. It looks at the everyday experience and the extraordinary events as problematic; suffused with simultaneous and conflicting yet flourishing negotiations. Moved by this insight Peter Berger opened up his famed book with this poignant statement: “It can be said that the first wisdom of sociology is this: things are not what they seem…. Social reality turns out to have many layers of meaning. The discovery of each new layer changes the perception of the whole.

  • How are pollutants transformed after their release into the environment? How are organisms exposed, and how do physiological alterations impact population dynamics and community structure? What direct or indirect impacts occur? As early as the 50s and 60s people living near industrial plants began to recognize undesirable changes in their environment - and to ask these very questions. The discipline of environmental toxicology addresses these questions.

  • The environmental metals of greatest concern are lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium. In the past, lead paint was available for use in homes, and lead pipes and/or lead solder delivered water to some homes. As a result, people can be exposed to lead on a daily basis; this exposure is a major pediatric concern. Mercury similarly is a contaminant of our environment; human beings are exposed to mercury in the fish they eat as well as in the amalgam fillings in their teeth.

  • Fossil fuel combustion for transportation contributes to air pollution, and air pollution degrades human health. However, the path from transportation to human health costs is anything but straightforward. Which pollutants are produced in which proportions depend on a number of factors, including the vehicle and fuel used and the driving conditions of a particular trip. These emissions are dispersed into the ambient air according to atmospheric conditions, which also influence the extent to which they react to form secondary pollutants.

  • A few years ago, I wrote a book with a colleague about open source ESBs (Enterprise Service Buses), Open Source ESBs in Action (Manning, 2008). In that book we wrote about using open source tools to integrate applications and expose legacy systems as services. In the years that followed, ESBs were seen as one of the cornerstones of developing Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs). In 2008, when people talked about SOA, especially in the enterprise world, they meant the traditional SOAP-over-HTTP-based services.

  • International travel is undertaken by large, and ever increasing, numbers of people for professional, social, recreational and humanitarian purposes. More people travel greater distances and at greater speed than ever before, and this upward trend looks set to continue. Travellers are thus exposed to a variety of health risks in unfamiliar environments. Most such risks, however, can be minimized by suitable precautions taken before, during and after travel.

  • Today’s society is fascinated by crime. Crime and deviance have taken on a cultural significance they never previously had. As a result, crime is a hot topic in the media and one that leads people to be continually exposed to criminal events, portrayals of those who commit them, and the suffering of victims. Most of the crime we experience, we experience vicariously. But the bias in crime reporting is such that it is easy to get the wrong idea about the reality of crime.

  • Air pollution is one of the most serious environmental threats to urban populations (Cohen 2005). Exposures vary among and within urban areas, but all people living in cities are exposed, and many are harmed, by current levels of pollutants in many large cities. Infants, young children, seniors and people who have lung and heart conditions are especially affected, but even young, healthy adults are not immune to harm from poor air quality.

  • The luxury goods industry is unique in that it is an industry that relies strictly on marketing and promotion to sell products to a specified group of people. It is also an industry that is well guarded and difficult to find any information on. However, the luxury goods industry is very fascinating and the products themselves signify prestige and status. Although a select few are able to afford luxury goods, the vast majority of people who are exposed to advertisements for certain products generally have aspirations of being able to own these products someday. ...

  • At heart, I have always been both a teacher and a student. I have been fortunate to continue to meet a variety of people and have traveled to many interesting places in both capacities over many years. One thing I have found to be true: learning has kept me stimulated, curious, and optimistic about life and its possibilities. Learning takes many forms, but the most powerful is the learning we gain from direct exposure to other people. Whether we know it or not, many of those people to whom we have been exposed have been coaches.

Vineyard sprayers have experienced liver disease from exposure to it. It is corrosive to the skin and eyes and is absorbed through the skin. It causes reproductive problems in birds, hamsters and rats. It has been shown to induce heart disease in the offspring of pregnant hamsters that were exposed to it.

  • In all three cities, there is likely to be an increase in the number of persons exposed to flooding in 2050 under different climate scenarios compared to a situa- tion without climate change. For instance, in Bangkok in 2050, the number of persons affected (flooded for more than 30 days) by a 1-in-30-year event will rise sharply for both the low and high emission sce- narios—by 47 percent and 75 percent respectively— compared to those affected by floods in a situation without climate change.
