... ictions from a population dynamics model incorporating density-dependent mortality - Springer. Stocking of captive-bred fish can cause long-term population decline and gene pool replacement: predictions from a population dynamics model incorporating density-dependent mortality. Affiliated with Department of Fish Ecology and Evolution, Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology EAWAG , Center of Ecology, Evolution and Biogeochemistry. Abstract Releasing captive-bred fish into natural environments stocking is common in fisheries worldwide. Using a population dynamics model that takes into account a density-dependent recruitment, a gene responsible for the fitness difference between wild and captive-bred fish, and hybridization between them, we show that there is little or no contribution of recurrent stocking to the stock enhancement without a replacement of the wild gene pool by the captive-bred gene pool.

During the last centuries, the breeding range of the great snipe Gallinago media has declined dramatically in the western part of its distribution. To examine present population dynamics in the Scandinavian mountains, we collected and analysed a 19-year time series of counts of great snipe males at leks in central Norway, 1987–2005. 2 The population showed large annual fluctuations in the number of males displaying at lek sites range 45–90 males at the peak of the mating season, but no overall trend. 3 We detected presence of direct density-dependent mechanisms regulating this popula...

Sociological Methodology. RSS. Tagged: uw-madison. RSS, wisconsin. RSS, sociology. RSS, demography. RSS, prelim. RSS, qual. RSS, WisconsinDemographyPrelimAugust2009. RSS. Summary:. The analysis of age-specific vital rates is studied, and special attention is given to the problem of decomposing an array of rates into factors related to age, period, and cohort. A complete, symmetric decomposition of the data array into age, period, and cohort components is not attempted. Instead, the paper focuses on the age and period dimensions and derives an initial description of the matrix's structure with regard to changes only in those 2 directions. This 2-dimensional description is then augmented by a consideration of residual patterns that seem clearly linked to cohorts. The use of a model that is asymmetric in age, period, and cohort is just...

*  Matrix population models
... Population models are used in population ecology to model the dynamics of wildlife or human populations. 'Matrix population models' are a specific type of population model that uses matrix algebra. N t+1 = abundance at time t+1 N t = abundance at time t B = number of births within the population between N t and N t+1 D = number of deaths within the population between N t and N t+1 I = number of individuals immigrating into the population between N t and N t+1 E = number of individuals emigrating from the population between N t and N t+1. Estimates of B might be obtained via a ratio of immatures to adults soon after the breeding season, R i. Number of deaths can be obtained by estimating annual survival probability, usually via mark and recapture methods, then multipling present abundance and survival rate. For added simplicity it may help to think of time t as the end of the breeding season in year t and to imagine that one is studying a species that has only one discrete breeding season per year. : N {t...

Population density is loosely defined as the number of organisms in an area divided by the amount of area. High population density can cause increased competition for resources while low population density can cause problems with finding mates and inbreeding. In studying population ecology a common measurement that is made of a population in a particular area is what is known as population density and that is simply what is the number of organisms in a particular area divided by that area.

*  Threshold host density
'Threshold host density N T ', in the context of wildlife disease ecology, refers to the concentration of a population of a particular organism as it relates to disease. Specifically, the threshold host density N T of a species refers to the minimum concentration of individuals necessary to sustain a given disease within a population. 1 Threshold host density N T only applies to density dependent diseases, where there is an "aggregation of risk" to the host in either high host density or low host density patches. When low host density causes an increase in incidence of parasitism or disease, this is known as inverse host density dependence, whereas when incidence of parasitism or disease is elevated in high host density conditions, it is known as direct host density dependence. Host density independent diseases show no correlation between the concentration of a given host population and the incidence of a particular disease.

*  Epizootic
... In epizoology, an 'epizootic' from Greek : 'epi-' upon + 'zoon' animal is a disease event in a nonhuman animal population, analogous to an epidemic in humans. An epizootic may be: restricted to a specific locale an " outbreak ", general an "'epizootic'" or widespread " panzootic ". High population density is a major contributing factor to epizootics. Aquaculture is an industry sometimes plagued by disease because of the large number of fish confined to a small area. Defining an epizootic can be subjective; it is based upon the number of new cases in a given animal population, during a given period, and must be judged to be a rate that substantially exceeds what is expected based on recent experience 'i.e.' a sharp elevation in the incidence rate. Because it is based on what is "expected" or thought normal, a few cases of a very rare disease like a TSE outbreak in a cervid population might be classified as an "epizootic", while many cases of a common disease like lymphocystis in esocids would not.

*  Panmixia
... 'Panmixia' or panmixis means 'random mating'. "Panmixia: Random mating within a breeding population.". 1 In genetics, 'random mating' involves the mating of individuals regardless of any physical, genetic, or social preference. In other words, the mating between two organisms is not influenced by any environmental, hereditary, or social interaction. Hence, potential mates have an equal chance of being selected. Random mating is a factor assumed in the Hardy-Weinberg principle and is distinct from lack of natural selection : in viability selection for instance, selection occurs 'before' mating. Description Panmictic Species See also References. To signify the importance of this, imagine several different finite populations of the same species for example: a grazing herbivore, isolated from each other by some physical characteristic of the environment dense forest areas separating grazing lands.

Models of population growth Population ecologists have developed mathematical models to study the growth of populations. The simplest model of population growth is the exponential growth model which assumes that the per capita growth rate the change in population size/time/individual is constant. The logistic growth model is a more realistic model because it allows the per capita growth rate to vary with population size.

... The 'Population and Community Development Association' PDA is a non-governmental organization in Thailand. Its goal is to reduce poverty through both development initiatives and family planning programs. Originally called the Community-Based Family Planning Service, it was founded by Mechai Viravaidya in 1974. 1 In the early 1970s, Viravaidya was the Minister of Industry but became frustrated with the government’s inability to implement a national family planning policy. In his work with the government, he identified a direct correlation between Thailand’s poverty and population growth. 2 His immediate concern was the high population growth rate of 3.2%, which equated to approximately seven children per family. 3 The population growth rate was an increasing concern for Thailand and Mechai Viravaidya because high growth rates restricted Thailand's ability to provide for its entire population and improve living conditions. Today, Thailand’s population growth rate is only 0.566%. 4 The reduction in populati...

*  Food Race
... American environmental author Daniel Quinn coined the term 'Food Race' by analogy to the Cold War 's " nuclear arms race " to describe an understanding of the current overpopulation emergency as a perpetually escalating crisis between growing human population and growing food production, fueled by the latter. Quinn argues that as the worldwide human population increases, the typical international response is to more intensely produce and distribute food to feed these greater numbers of people. However, assuming that population increases according to increased food availability, Quinn argues that this response only ends up leading to an even larger population and thus greater starvation in the end. Therefore, Quinn's clear solution to the Food Race — to stop producing so much food — is not generally a common-sense or intuitive response; instead, it derives from seemingly counter-intuitive or "outside-the-box" thinking. Quinn compared this to the arms race in the Cold War, noting that any increase in food ...

... We show that in steady state both demographic change and economic growth are constant, but the rate of these growth can be positive, negative or null accordingly to parameter values. Population dynamics is determined by the difference between the stationary fertility rate and the exogenous mortality rate: if this is positive population size indefinitely increases, otherwise it reaches a stationary level, which can be positive if the difference is null or null if it is negative. We show that in our model economy, under certain parametric conditions, the repugnant conclusion holds; in particular, this happens when consumption growth is negative and the stationary fertility rate is higher than the exogenous mortality rate.

Charting New Plagues Like Predicting the Weather The emergence of new infectious agents is closely related to human activities such as travel, trade, antibiotic usage and ecological degradation. The human-related factors of emergence will increase over the next 90 years. Human population growth on the planet will exacerbate epidemic activity. The breadth of transmission will continue to increase. The food and water supply of the world will become increasingly precious. Indeed, while more than a billion inhabitants now live without adequate clean water, and more than two billion without adequate sanitation, these numbers will increase. Food production will become more and more centralized as we struggle to feed our population, and this will make the food supply increasingly vulnerable to contamination. On the positive side new technology now allows us to characterize infectious agents more rapidly, and to produce effective vaccines more quickly.

Never mind the fact that Baby boomers have been dubbed the Healthiest Generation, since they have the longest life expectancy of any previous generation, and that they were able to exploit advances in medical care and reap the benefits of public health campaigns highlighting the dangers of smoking and unhealthy diets.

Print. 6 comments. Oil Gas. Oil Industry and Fracking Could Help Solve Looming Global Water Crisis. By Jared Anderson on October 08, 2013 at 12:00 PM. Water wars in the western US and around the world are predicted with increasing frequency as climate fears grow, debilitating droughts persist and human population growth climbs steadily higher. Concerns about fresh water supplies coming under pressure and the increasing cost of supplying fresh water to people, crops and livestock seem to grow more urgent every day. But mitigating technology is being funded and developed – by what may at first appear an unlikely source – the oil and gas industry. Hydraulic fracturing – as its name suggests – is a water-intensive industrial process that requires increasing volumes as companies drill greater numbers of wells needed to maintain and increase production levels. At the same time, these often horizontal wells are being drilled with longer lateral sections and greater numbers of frack stages, as companies continu...

← what is education. Survival of Life on Earth →. Population Growth. Posted on. January 25, 2010 by. grandad. The This Day Tonight program on the 25th January, had a piece on this subject which I feel inclined to comment upon as follows. It would appear that the population problem is really matter of having an available area for expansion whilst keeping the needed space to support that population within the confines of a finite fixed area without destroying the environment for all other life forms. We have evolved to a degree where we are now the first life form that has the option of controlling our reproduction or breeding our selves to extinction. Mr Rudd has formed the opinion that we will be better off with a bigger population. This is based on the impossible belief that we can have everlasting growth; which would need everlasting growth of population. Since there is only a finite space available, adoption of a policy of everlasting growth will inevitably lead to our extinction as a species. It is not no...

Baby Boomers Urged To Get Tested For Hepatitis C. May 21, 2012. ATLANTA — For the first time, the government is proposing that all baby boomers get tested for hepatitis C. Anyone born from 1945 to 1965 should get a one-time blood test to see if they have the liver-destroying virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in draft recommendations issued Friday. Baby boomers account for more than 2 million of the 3.2 million Americans infected with the blood-borne virus. It can take decades to cause liver damage, and many people don’t know they’re infected. CDC officials believe the new measure could lead 800,000 more baby boomers to get treatment and could save more than 120,000 lives. “The CDC views hepatitis C as an unrecognized health crisis for the country, and we believe the time is now for a bold response,” ...

Overwhelmed by the need to educate children, create jobs, and deal with the environmental effects of population growth, governments faced with a major new threat-such as AIDS or aquifer depletion-often cannot cope. In our demographically divided world, fertility has dropped and population has stabilized or is declining in some countries; but in others where fertility is still high, population is projected to double or even triple before stabilizing.

At the Sixth World Water Forum, the ICRC will lead discussions on the importance of ground-level cooperation and communication in coming up with practical solutions, especially in conflict-affected areas, where protracted or intense fighting, political wrangling and embargoes can leave communities without decent access to water and sanitation for weeks, years or even decades.

*  Baby Boomers Should Be Screened For Hepatitis C
... Preventive Services Task Force released a new recommendation urging baby boomers, people born between 1945 and 1965, to be screened at least once in adulthood for Hepatitis C HCV. The announcement comes after it was discovered that many cases of HCV in adults – a serious viral infection that predisposes people to liver disease, including severe scarring and liver cancer – are found in people born during those two decades. The majority of these cases are found in baby boomers. The limitation of screening based on risk factors – and therefore the need to screen all adults – is that some people without any identifiable risk factors test positive for HCV antibodies. The virus is the number one reason that adults require liver transplants, and it has been linked to a large portion of new cases of aggressive liver cancer hepatocellular carcinoma. While treatment decreases the risk of liver scarring and cancer dramatically, physicians are looking to improve these numbers by using exciting, new treatments that h...

California is a high-profile example of a state where certificate of need was abandoned in the 1980s and where high managed care penetration, a very competitive market for cardiac services and the lack of regulation have shaped the delivery of care; Washington State is an example of a Western state with high managed care penetration plus CofN laws. Coronary angiography procedures, but not angioplasty, are performed in facilities without cardiac surgery on stand-by. New York State has public reporting at the hospital and physician levels on outcomes from both CABG surgery and coronary angioplasty, and the reporting system is directed by a Cardiac Advisory Committee which is authorized to require plans of correction for under-performing programs, which can be closed if they continue to under-perform. Only "low-risk" patients are eligible for coronary angiography or angioplasty at hospitals without surgical back up and all high risk angiography and angioplasty is done at facilities with cardiac surgery programs....

... el. File photo of elderly couples viewing the ocean and waves along the beach in La Jolla Mike Blake, Reuters. Most say mortality will continue to decline and people will live longer. Baby boomers, now between 48 and 67 years old, have already shown a greater propensity to suicide than previous generations, according to a data analysis from researchers at Rutgers University and Emory University. The post-war baby boom generation does have higher rates of cancer at younger ages than the previous generation, the National Cancer Institute reported. In 2009, people 45 to 59 years old saw roughly 570 cases of cancer per 100,000 people. By 2040, obesity will reduce life expectancy by 0.733 percent for men, and 0.677 percent for women, according to Preston. And Chris Ruhm, a professor of public policy and economics at the University of Virginia, sees another shoe ready to drop: severe obesity. He expects high rates of obesity to be a drag on life expectancy and severe or morbid obesity, even in the baby boom gen...

Matrix population models: Population models are used in population ecology to model the dynamics of wildlife or human populations. Matrix population models are a specific type of population model that uses matrix algebra.Threshold host density: Threshold host density (NT), in the context of wildlife disease ecology, refers to the concentration of a population of a particular organism as it relates to disease. Specifically, the threshold host density (NT) of a species refers to the minimum concentration of individuals necessary to sustain a given disease within a population.Panmixia: Panmixia (or panmixis) means random mating.King C and Stanfield W.Food Race: American environmental author Daniel Quinn coined the term Food Race (by analogy to the Cold War's "nuclear arms race") to describe an understanding of the current overpopulation emergency as a perpetually escalating crisis between growing human population and growing food production, fueled by the latter. Quinn argues that as the worldwide human population increases, the typical international response is to more intensely produce and distribute food to feed these greater numbers of people.Selection (relational algebra): In relational algebra, a selection (sometimes called a restriction to avoid confusion with SQL's use of SELECT) is a unary operation written asPolystichum acrostichoides: Polystichum acrostichoides (Christmas fern) is an evergreen fern native to eastern North America from Nova Scotia west to Minnesota and south to Florida and eastern Texas.

(1/5270) Geographic, demographic, and socioeconomic variations in the investigation and management of coronary heart disease in Scotland.

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether age, sex, level of deprivation, and area of residence affect the likelihood of investigation and treatment of patients with coronary heart disease. DESIGN, PATIENTS, AND INTERVENTIONS: Routine discharge data were used to identify patients admitted with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) between 1991 and 1993 inclusive. Record linkage provided the proportion undergoing angiography, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) over the following two years. Multiple logistic regression analysis was used to determine whether age, sex, deprivation, and area of residence were independently associated with progression to investigation and revascularisation. SETTING: Mainland Scotland 1991 to 1995 inclusive. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Two year incidence of angiography, PTCA, and CABG. Results-36 838 patients were admitted with AMI. 4831 (13%) underwent angiography, 587 (2%) PTCA, and 1825 (5%) CABG. Women were significantly less likely to undergo angiography (p < 0.001) and CABG (p < 0.001) but more likely to undergo PTCA (p < 0.05). Older patients were less likely to undergo all three procedures (p < 0.001). Socioeconomic deprivation was associated with a reduced likelihood of both angiography and CABG (p < 0.001). There were significant geographic variations in all three modalities (p < 0.001). CONCLUSION: Variations in investigation and management were demonstrated by age, sex, geography, and socioeconomic deprivation. These are unlikely to be accounted for by differences in need; differences in clinical practice are, therefore, likely.  (+info)

(2/5270) Identifying families with likely genetic protective factors against Alzheimer disease.

Elderly individuals who lived beyond the age of 90 years without dementia were hypothesized to have increased concentrations of genetic protective factors against Alzheimer disease (AD), conferring a reduced liability for this disease relative to less-aged nondemented elderly. However, testing this hypothesis is complicated by having to distinguish such a group from those who may lack genetic risk factors for AD, have had protective environmental exposures, or have escaped dementia for other reasons. Probands carrying genetic protective factors, however, should have relatives with lower illness rates not only for earlier-onset disease, when genetic risk factors are a strong contributing factor to the incidence of AD, but also for later-onset disease, when the role of these factors appears to be markedly diminished. AD dementia was assessed through family informants in 6,660 first-degree relatives of 1,049 nondemented probands aged 60-102 years. The probands were grouped by age (60-74, 75-89, and 90-102 years), and the cumulative survival from AD and 10-year-age-interval hazard rates of AD were calculated in their first-degree relatives. Cumulative survival from AD was significantly greater in the relatives of the oldest proband group (aged 90-102 years) than it was in the two younger groups. In addition, the reduction in the rate of illness for this group was relatively constant across the entire late life span. The results suggest that genetic factors conferring a lifelong reduced liability of AD may be more highly concentrated among nondemented probands aged >/=90 years and their relatives. Efforts to identify protective allele-bearing genes that are associated with very late-onset AD should target the families of nonagenarians and centenarians.  (+info)

(3/5270) Tay-Sachs screening: motives for participating and knowledge of genetics and probability.

A highly-educated, socially aware group of persons presented themselves for Tay-Sachs screening having learned about it mainly from friends, newspapers, radio, and television but not from physicians or rabbis. After learning that screening was possible and deciding that it is in principle a good idea, and after discussing it with relatives and friends but not with physicians and rabbis, they presented themselves for the test. Although the participants knew that Tay-Sachs is a serious disease and that Jews are vulnerable, few of them knew much about the genetics of the disease, its frequency, or the incidence of the carrier state. This experience of screening for Tay-Sachs carriers suggests the need for physicians to learn the relation of genetics to preventive medicine, and for the public to learn more about the biology of man.  (+info)

(4/5270) Disease patterns of the homeless in Tokyo.

In recent years, homelessness has been recognized as a growing urban social problem in various countries throughout the world. The health problems of the homeless are considerable. The purpose of this study was to elicit, with sociodemographic profiles, the disease patterns among Tokyo's homeless. The subjects were 1,938 men who stayed at a welfare institution from 1992 to 1996. Diagnosed diseases/injuries and sociodemographic profiles were analyzed. The disease patterns of the homeless were compared to those of the male general population. Of the subjects, 8.3% were admitted to the hospital; 64.0% received outpatient care. Their observed morbidity rates by disease category were greater than those of the male general population in both Japan and Tokyo. Comorbidity of alcoholic psychosis/alcohol-dependent syndrome to both liver disease and pulmonary tuberculosis were greater than the average (P < .01). Construction work brought a higher risk of pulmonary tuberculosis (odds ratio = 2.0) and dorsopathies (odds ratio = 1.4) than did other jobs (P < .05). Disease patterns among the homeless in Tokyo were characterized by alcoholic psychosis/alcohol-dependence syndrome; liver disease; pulmonary tuberculosis; diabetes mellitus; fractures, dislocations, sprains, strains; hypertension; and cerebrovascular disease. Although the sociodemographic backgrounds of Tokyo's homeless have become more diverse, the principal occupation of the homeless was unskilled daily construction work, which underlay the characteristics of their disease patterns.  (+info)

(5/5270) Marijuana use among minority youths living in public housing developments.

Youths residing in public housing developments appear to be at markedly heightened risk for drug use because of their constant exposure to violence, poverty, and drug-related activity. The purpose of this study was to develop and test a model of marijuana etiology with adolescents (N = 624) residing in public housing. African-American and Hispanic seventh graders completed questionnaires about their marijuana use, social influences to smoke marijuana, and sociodemographic and psychosocial characteristics. Results indicated that social influences, such as friends' marijuana use and perceived ease of availability of marijuana, significantly predicted both occasional and future use of marijuana. Individual characteristics such as antimarijuana attitudes and drug refusal skills also predicted marijuana use. The findings imply that effective prevention approaches that target urban youths residing in public housing developments should provide them with an awareness of social influences to use marijuana, correct misperceptions about the prevalence of marijuana smoking, and train adolescents in relevant psychosocial skills.  (+info)

(6/5270) Is choice of general practitioner important for patients having coronary artery investigations?

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether particular sociodemographic characteristics of patients with stable angina affected their general practitioners' (GPs') decisions to refer them for revascularisation assessment. DESIGN: Postal questionnaire survey. SETTING: Collaborative survey by the departments of public health medicine in each of the four health boards in Northern Ireland, serving a total population of 1.5 million. SUBJECTS: All (962) GPs. MAIN MEASURES: The relation between GPs' referral decisions and patients' age, sex, employment status, home circumstances, smoking habits, and obesity. RESULTS: 541 GPs replied (response rate 56%). Most were "neutral" towards a patient's sex (428, 79%), weight (331, 61%), smoking habit (302, 56%), employment status (431, 80%), and home circumstances (408, 75%) in making decisions about referral. In assigning priority for surgery most were neutral towards the patient's sex (459, 85%), employment status (378, 70%), and home circumstances (295, 55%). However, most GPs (518, 95%) said that younger patients were more likely to be referred, and a significant minority were less likely to refer patients who smoked (202, 37%) and obese patients (175, 32%) and more likely to refer employed patients (97, 18%) and those with dependents (117, 22%) (compared with patients with otherwise comparable clinical characteristics); these views paralleled the priority which GPs assigned these groups. The stated likelihood of referral of young patients was independent of the GPs' belief in ability to benefit from revascularisation, but propensity to refer and perception of benefit were significantly associated for all other patient characteristics. CONCLUSION: GPs' weighting of certain characteristics in reaching decisions about referral for angiography is not uniform and may contribute to unequal access to revascularisation services for certain patient groups.  (+info)

(7/5270) Factors influencing default at a hospital colposcopy clinic.

OBJECTIVE: To identify factors reducing compliance at diagnosis, treatment, and review stages among women referred with abnormal cervical smears to a hospital colposcopy clinic. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of sociodemographic data from hospital notes of the attenders and defaulters during one year (1989-90) and prospective collection of information by structured interviews of a sample of defaulters and attenders during five months (May-September 1990). SETTING: One hospital colposcopy clinic. PATIENTS: 238 women defaulting on two consecutive occasions and 188 attending regularly (retrospective analysis) and a subset of 40 defaulters and 24 attenders (interview sample). MAIN MEASURES: Sociodemographic data and interview responses about attitudes, behaviour, choice, accessibility cultural understanding, communications, and emotional response. RESULTS: 22 (12%) women defaulted at diagnosis, 24(13%) at treatment, 39(21%) at the first check up after treatment, and 84(45%) at the review stage; 19(10%) defaulted from the first check up after diagnostic examination revealed no need for treatment. Age and social class differed between the two groups. 181(76%) defaulters were under 30 compared with 91(48%) attenders; 14(6%) compared with 41(23%) were over 40(p < 0.001). The proportion of women in social classes 4 and 5 was 33%(20/60) for defaulters and 21%(25/120) for attenders (p < 0.05) and unemployed was 66%(158/238) and 36%(68/188) respectively. 63(28%) defaulters were pregnant compared with 11(6%) attenders (p < 0.001). More defaulters came from gynaecology or antenatal clinics. Most defaulters (93%) had child care responsibilities and they knew and understood less about colposcopy. Their explicit reasons for defaulting included child care commitments and fear and their implicit reasons lack of understanding, inaccessibility of information, and staff attitudes. CONCLUSIONS: Compliance may be improved by promoting women's understanding of treatment and encouraging health professionals to develop a service more sensitive to the various needs of women in different socioeconomic groups.  (+info)

(8/5270) The determinants of infant and child mortality in Tanzania.

This paper investigates the determinants of infant and child mortality in Tanzania using the 1991/92 Tanzania Demographic and Health Survey. A hazards model is used to assess the relative effect of the variables hypothesized to influence under-five mortality. Short birth intervals, teenage pregnancies and previous child deaths are associated with increased risk of death. The Government of the United Republic of Tanzania should therefore maintain its commitment to encouraging women to space their births at least two years apart and delay childbearing beyond the teenage years. Further, this study shows that there is a remarkable lack of infant and child mortality differentials by socioeconomic subgroups of the population, which may reflect post-independence health policy and development strategies. Whilst lack of socioeconomic differentials can be considered an achievement of government policies, mortality remains high so there is still a long way to go before Tanzania achieves its stated goal of 'Health for All'.  (+info)

When did you have sex again after giving birth?


Just curious

I gave birth almost a month ago
i had sex last night, and it was totally fine.
----------

The six week rule is cultural -not medical.  In some places doctors say 6 weeks for sex, in others they tell women they should have sex by 6 weeks so they can discuss any problems.  Really its not their place to say either.  Its the same as restrictions on baths (women birth in their own tubs), leaving the birthing room, etc.

With my first I waited longer than 6 weeks because of the stress around his birth (long story).

With my second I had a second degree tear and I think we waited 4 days, it might have been 5.  The midwife said it was fine and it was.  She is a beautiful seamstress and the stitches never caused me any problems, unlike the stitches with my first which I had to pull out as they were in wrong.

Postpartum taboos on sexual intercourse have been encountered in many countries throughout history. They were once advocated by medical authorities in Europe. The Greek and Roman doctors of antiquity were opposed to sexual relations during nursing and their opinions were quoted until the nineteenth century. Galen (1951:29) thought that the milk of the nursing mother would be spoiled because of the admixture of sperm in the mother's blood. Soranos and Hippocrates believed that coitus and passionate behavior provided the stimulus that reactivated menstruation. Prior to the eighteenth century, there was no medical knowledge of the biological effect of bring on inence, and not the action of breastfeeding, was thought to delay the return of menses. This interpretation was still vivid in Europe in the eighteenth century.

It is traditional in Subsaharan countries for parents to carefully space their children through postpartum abstinence; mothers who become pregnant too soon are often viewed quite negatively. The a mount of time the sexual taboo is observed varies widely from a matter of weeks to close to 2 years. Generally 3 types of duration have been observed. Those of 40 days or less are increasingly seen among followers of Islam who interpret Koranic tradition in this way. Durations of longer than 40 days and less than 1 year are observed in much of East Africa. Duration of more than 1 year characterize, among others, non-Islamic Western Africa and Central Africa. The strength of the taboo may be rapidly eroding however, as such factors as the influence of Islam, modernization, urbanization, and education do away with factors associated with long taboo such as male dominance, polygyny, early marriage for women, large differences in age between spouses, and possibly female circumcision. Sexual abstinence can be seen as a means of protecting the child's health, the mother's health, or as a way of limiting births. The sexual abstinence taboo is also often associated with the period of breastfeeding. In much of sub-Saharan Africa, a long period of spacing between births is the combined result of extended postpartum amenorrhea due to prolonged, on-demand breastfeeding, and of sexual abstinence. The spacing norms found however do not necessarily imply the conscious use of these techniques to avoid births. A study done in Bobo-Dioulasso, a town in Burkina Faso showed the complexity of these interactions. Although strong expected norms were observed for spacing and abstinence, the actual behavior of the women was somewhat at variance to these norms. There was little statistical evidence of an intercourse taboo linked to lactation. Although lengthy birth intervals may in fact be achieved by extended and intensive breastfeeding, populations may be unaware of the physiological effect of lactation of fertility. Abstinence, on the other hand, is usually ineffective for spacing as it is actually doubling up as protection during the period of breastfeeding amenorrhea. However, most African populations do not see abstinence as a spacing mechanism, but as a purification ritual or means of preventing the pollution of the milk.

Postpartum Sex

The Official Party Line
Traditionally, obstetricians have told their patients "no sex for six weeks" after giving birth. What they mean is to avoid penetration (inserting a penis, fingers, or other things into the vagina). Other doctors may specify only four weeks or when the lochia (postpartum discharge from the vagina) stops, whichever is later. Sex by manual or oral stimulation of the clitoris should not be a problem, providing there are no tears involving that area.

The main reason for avoiding intercourse is to allow the woman's genital tissues to heal, especially if there was an episiotomy or tearing. Avoiding infection is another reason. But these risks don't require weeks of abstinence from intercourse. In fact, the reason for the "six week rule" is more for the obstetrician's convenience than the new mom's medical needs. The postpartum re-check is traditionally at six weeks. Six weeks is, in turn, when the uterus should have returned to its pre-pregnancy size. This is the last of the major physical postpartum changes (again, from the obstetrician's perspective). Now, a woman doesn't need her uterus at its pre-pregnancy size for intercourse. But the obstetricians wanted "one-stop shopping" for the postpartum re-check, so they put everything, including "permission" to have intercourse at six weeks.

You can, but will you want to?
For many women, in the weeks and months following childbirth, their desire for sex is low or nonexistent. They may find that healing has not progressed enough to make intercourse pleasurable. The research on averages and statistics is spotty, so here's a sampling. One Australian study found that six weeks was the median time for women to begin intercourse again. But it also found that about half had problems initially and that persisted for the first year. Another study found that for 20% of first time mothers it took 6 months to feel physically comfortable during sex. The median time was around 3 months. Yet another study found that 57% of women were still having less frequent sex at 12 months after childbirth.

Causes Hormonal Factors
Hormone levels are also affected by breastfeeding. A woman who breastfeeds might not start menstruating again for quite a while longer than a woman who bottle feeds. This can translate into an extended decrease in libido. Women who breastfeed may also have the experience that their breasts leak during sex. Orgasm and breast stimulation can trigger the letdown reflex. Couples may find this awkward to deal with. Some women will wear a bra during sex. Women who breastfeed sometimes also comment that by the end of the day they are pretty well done with being touched.


How is life expectancy measured?


How is life expectancy measured? Would it be through census?
----------

Life expectancy is the average number of years of life that one could be expected to live if current death rates were to remain constant. This is calculated based on vital statistics records of deaths as reported and collected by the National Center for Health Statistics.  The methodologies used to calculate life expectancy are explained in the article: "Measuring and explaining the change in life expectancies." by EE Arriaga in the Journal Demography 1984, Vol 21, Issue 1, pp83-96.


Where do you think would be the best place to have a vegetarian restaurant?


If you could chose any place in the United States where would you think would be the best place to have a vegetarian restaurant? My thoughts were maybe San Francisco.
----------

S.F. has TONS of vegetarian restaurants already.  There are also other, smaller, hippie oriented cities in the US.  Boulder, Colorado, Eugene, Oregon or Berkley, California would also be good places to open a vegetarian restaurant.  Boulder and Berkley have a bunch of vegetarian restaurants.  Eugene has just a few, but the economy in Oregon is terrible.

I would definitely stick with the larger cities.  Bigger cities offer a broader customer base.  Pick a city that has a strong economy and where people are willing to spend money to go out to eat.  You also have to pick a perfect location inside the city, too.  You have to research your demography.  Find out if people want to eat at vegetarian restaurants.  Portland, Oregon or Seattle may be good places :0

How do you become an Epidemiologist?


Epidemiology is one of the occupations one may pursue after getting a Masters Degree in Public Health.

First you should graduate from College with a science or mathematics degree. Epidemiologists use statistics to track trends in medical conditions, some of which may be infectious diseases but others may be trends or clusters of diseases associated with other environmental hazards.

An Epidemiologist is a scientist who may study the transmission and control of epidemic diseases in populations. Many of these are Medical doctors with public health training along with their MD degree. A solid educational background would include Mathematics with Calculus level Statistics , an average of 15 hours of course work in the field of Epidemiology, Demography, and Research design. Epidemiologists work for Medical institutions, Universities, the Military, and other government agencies. For additional information, you may call the Society for Epidemiologic Research at 801-525-0231 

Below are some URLs with additional information about how to become an epidemiologist.
