An island in the Greater Antilles in the West Indies. Its capital is San Juan. It is a self-governing commonwealth in union with the United States. It was discovered by Columbus in 1493 but no colonization was attempted until 1508. It belonged to Spain until ceded to the United States in 1898. It became a commonwealth with autonomy in internal affairs in 1952. Columbus named the island San Juan for St. John's Day, the Monday he arrived, and the bay Puerto Rico, rich harbor. The island became Puerto Rico officially in 1932. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p987 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p436)
An island in the Greater Antilles in the West Indies, south of Florida. With the adjacent islands it forms the Republic of Cuba. Its capital is Havana. It was discovered by Columbus on his first voyage in 1492 and conquered by Spain in 1511. It has a varied history under Spain, Great Britain, and the United States but has been independent since 1902. The name Cuba is said to be an Indian name of unknown origin but the language that gave the name is extinct, so the etymology is a conjecture. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p302 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p132)
A republic in the Greater Antilles in the West Indies. Its capital is Santo Domingo. With Haiti, it forms the island of Hispaniola - the Dominican Republic occupying the eastern two thirds, and Haiti, the western third. It was created in 1844 after a revolt against the rule of President Boyer over the entire island of Hispaniola, itself visited by Columbus in 1492 and settled the next year. Except for a brief period of annexation to Spain (1861-65), it has been independent, though closely associated with the United States. Its name comes from the Spanish Santo Domingo, Holy Sunday, with reference to its discovery on a Sunday. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p338, 506 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p151)
An island republic of the West Indies. Its capital is Roseau. It was discovered in 1493 by Columbus and held at different times by the French and the British in the 18th century. A member of the West Indies Federation, it achieved internal self-government in 1967 but became independent in 1978. It was named by Columbus who discovered it on Sunday, Domingo in Spanish, from the Latin Dominica dies, the Lord's Day. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p338 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p151)

Behaviors expressed by individuals to protect, maintain or promote their health status. For example, proper diet, and appropriate exercise are activities perceived to influence health status. Life style is closely associated with health behavior and factors influencing life style are socioeconomic, educational, and cultural.
A republic consisting of an island group in Melanesia, in the southwest Pacific Ocean. Its capital is Suva. It was discovered by Abel Tasman in 1643 and was visited by Captain Cook in 1774. It was used by escaped convicts from Australia as early as 1804. It was annexed by Great Britain in 1874 but achieved independence in 1970. The name Fiji is of uncertain origin. In its present form it may represent that of Viti, the main island in the group. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p396 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p186)
Scientific study of human skeletal remains with the express purpose of identification. This includes establishing individual identity, trauma analysis, facial reconstruction, photographic superimposition, determination of time interval since death, and crime-scene recovery. Forensic anthropologists do not certify cause of death but provide data to assist in determination of probable cause. This is a branch of the field of physical anthropology and qualified individuals are certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. (From Am J Forensic Med Pathol 1992 Jun;13(2):146)
Changes across 3 years in self-reported awareness of product warning messages in a Hispanic community. (1/654)This study investigated the self-reported awareness of product warning messages among independent random samples of Hispanics in San Francisco surveyed from 1989 through 1992. Messages tested were primarily related to cigarette smoking and the consumption of alcoholic beverages. In general, respondents reported low levels of awareness of product warning messages with the exception of those messages dealing with the consumption of alcohol or cigarettes during pregnancy. Nevertheless, there were increases in awareness across years for the alcohol-related warning messages and for one of the cigarette messages, indicating that continued exposure increases awareness of the message. A notable proportion of the respondents reported being aware of a bogus message implying the presence of socially desirable responses in self-reports of message awareness. Gender, education, age and acculturation level of the respondents also showed effects on reported awareness of specific messages. Continued exposure to product warning messages seems useful in producing health-enhancing behaviors among Hispanics. (+info)
Cardiovascular risk factors in Mexican American adults: a transcultural analysis of NHANES III, 1988-1994. (2/654)OBJECTIVES: This study examined the extent to which cardiovascular disease risk factors differ among subgroups of Mexican Americans living in the United States. METHODS: Using data from a national sample (1988-1994) of 1387 Mexican American women and 1404 Mexican American men, aged 25 to 64 years, we examined an estimate of coronary heart disease mortality risk and 5 primary cardiovascular disease risk factors: systolic blood pressure, body mass index, cigarette smoking, non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Differences in risk were evaluated by country of birth and primary language spoken. RESULTS: Estimated 10-year coronary heart disease mortality risk per 1000 persons, adjusted for age and education, was highest for US-born Spanish-speaking men and women (27.5 and 11.4, respectively), intermediate for US-born English-speaking men and women (22.5 and 7.0), and lowest for Mexican-born men and women (20.0 and 6.6). A similar pattern of higher risk among US-born Spanish-speaking men and women was demonstrated for each of the 5 cardiovascular disease risk factors. CONCLUSIONS: These findings illustrate the heterogeneity of the Mexican American population and identify a new group at substantial risk for cardiovascular disease and in need of effective heart disease prevention programs.

Illness and treatment perceptions of Ethiopian immigrants and their doctors in Israel. (3/654)OBJECTIVES: Patient-provider misunderstandings arising from disparate medical and cultural concepts can impede health care among immigrant populations. This study assessed the extent of disagreement and identified the salient problems of communication between Israeli doctors and Ethiopian immigrant patients. METHODS: Semistructured interviews were conducted with 59 Ethiopian immigrants. Self-reports of health status and effectiveness of treatment were compared with evaluations by the primary care physician and supplemented by qualitative data from descriptions of illness, observations of medical visits, informant interviews, and participant observations conducted by the anthropologist. RESULTS: Health status and effectiveness of treatment were rated significantly higher by the doctor than by the patients. Low doctor-patient agreement occurred mainly for illnesses with stress-related or culture-specific associations. Qualitative data suggested that more long-term immigrants may alter their expectations of treatment but continue to experience symptoms that are culturally, but not biomedically, meaningful. CONCLUSIONS: Misunderstandings between immigrant patients and their doctors emerge from the biomedical system's limitations in addressing stress-related illnesses and from culture-based discrepancies in concepts of illness and healing. Including trained translators in medical teams can reduce medical misunderstandings and increase patient satisfaction among immigrant populations. (+info)
Is acculturation a risk factor for early smoking initiation among Chinese American minors? A comparative perspective. (4/654)OBJECTIVE: To determine the extent to which Chinese American and white minors differ in age of smoking initiation, and to determine the effect of acculturation on smoking initiation. DESIGN: Cross-sectional telephone surveys. SETTING: Stratified random samples of the state of California, United States. SUBJECTS: 347 Chinese American and 10 129 white adolescents aged 12 through 17 years, from the California Tobacco Survey (1990-93) and the California Youth Tobacco Survey (1994-96). OUTCOME MEASURES: Hazards (risk) of smoking initiation by age, smoking initiation rate, cumulative smoking rate, mean age of smoking initiation, and acculturation status. STATISTICAL METHODS: Life table methods, proportional hazards models, and chi(2) tests. RESULTS: The risk of smoking initiation by age among Chinese American minors was about a third of that among white minors. The risk for Chinese Americans continued to rise even in later adolescence, in contrast to that for whites, which slowed after 15 years of age. Acculturation was associated significantly with smoking onset among Chinese Americans. Acculturation, smoking among social network members, attitudes toward smoking, and perceived benefits of smoking were associated with the difference in hazards of smoking onset between Chinese American minors and their white counterparts. CONCLUSIONS: Chinese American adolescents had a lower level and a different pattern of smoking onset than white adolescents. Levels of acculturation and other known risk factors were associated with the hazards of smoking initiation among Chinese American minors and with the difference in smoking initiation between the Chinese and white adolescents. Tobacco prevention policies, strategies, and programmes for ethnically diverse populations should take acculturation factors into account. (+info)
Beyond artificial, sex-linked distinctions to conceptualize female sexuality: comment on Baumeister (2000) (5/654)The authors comment on three aspects of R. F. Baumeister's (2000) theoretical article on female sexuality. Questioning the predominance of nature versus cultural factors in accounting for sexual outcomes for men and women, the authors draw attention to the similarities (as opposed to differences) in the sexual attitudes, behaviors, and responses of men and women, and directly question the suggestion of "controlling" women's sexual attitudes, behaviors, responses, etc. to meet social needs for change.

Differences in energy, nutrient, and food intakes in a US sample of Mexican-American women and men: findings from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988-1994. (6/654)As Mexican-American women and men migrate to the United States and/or become more acculturated, their diets may become less healthy, increasing their risk of cardiovascular disease. Data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1988-1994) were used to compare whether energy, nutrient, and food intakes differed among three groups of Mexican-American women (n = 1,449) and men (n = 1,404) aged 25-64 years: those born in Mexico, those born in the United States whose primary language was Spanish, and those born in the United States whose primary language was English. Percentages of persons who met the national dietary guidelines for fat, fiber, and potassium and the recommended intakes of vitamins and minerals associated with cardiovascular disease were also compared. In general, Mexican Americans born in Mexico consumed significantly less fat and significantly more fiber; vitamins A, C, E, and B6; and folate, calcium, potassium, and magnesium than did those born in the United States, regardless of language spoken. More women and men born in Mexico met the dietary guidelines or recommended nutrient intakes than those born in the United States. The heart-healthy diets of women and men born in Mexico should be encouraged among all Mexican Americans living in the United States, especially given the increasing levels of obesity and diabetes among this rapidly growing group of Americans.

Recency of immigration, substance use, and sexual behavior among Massachusetts adolescents. (7/654)OBJECTIVES: This study examined the relationships between recency of immigration, substance use, and sexual behavior. METHODS: Surveys were conducted with 2635 Massachusetts 8th and 10th graders that allowed comparisons of health behaviors and risk and protective factors among students living in the United States "always," more than 6 years, or 6 years or less. RESULTS: Compared with lifetime residents, immigrant youths (particularly those living in the United States 6 years or less) reported lower lifetime and recent alcohol and marijuana use (P < .001); sexual intercourse rates were similar across groups. However, recent immigrants were most likely to report peer pressures to engage in, and less parental support to avoid, risk behaviors (P < .001). CONCLUSIONS: A window of opportunity exists to provide primary prevention programs in schools to immigrant youths that may reduce adolescent health risk behaviors. (+info)
Acculturation and leisure-time physical inactivity in Mexican American adults: results from NHANES III, 1988-1994. (8/654)OBJECTIVES: This study examined the relationship between acculturation and leisure-time physical inactivity among Mexican American adults. METHODS: Using data from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, we estimated the prevalence of physical inactivity according to place of birth and language used at home. RESULTS: Spanish-speaking Mexican Americans had a higher prevalence of physical inactivity during leisure time than those who spoke mostly English, independent of place of birth. CONCLUSIONS: Acculturation seems to be positively associated with participation in leisure-time physical activity. (+info)
ERIC - The Relationship between Print Literacy, Acculturation, and Acculturative Stress among Mexican Immigrant Women, ProQuest...
The purpose of this study was to examine print literacy, acculturation, and acculturative stress among one-hundred and six Mexican immigrant women participating in a family literacy program. The two hypotheses were: (1.) There is a relationship between (a) print literacy as measured by the Print Literacy Questionnaire and (b) acculturation as measured by the Multidimensional Acculturation Scale, and (2.) There is a relationship between (a) print literacy as measured by the Print Literacy Questionnaire and (b) acculturative stress as measured by the Multidimensional Acculturative Stress Inventory. This study applied canonical correlation and multiple regression analyses. Statistically significant (p|0.05) findings supported the first hypothesis. The findings for the second hypothesis were not significant (p=0.725). Two additional findings for the first hypothesis were: (1.) that adult reading and writing in English related to American acculturation; and (2.) that parents reading
Undergraduate Research Journal for the Human Sciences - A Validation of the African American Acculturation Scale in a...
As stated previously, acculturation has been investigated in conjunction with a number of physical, social and psychological variables. In a study of weight concern and body image among southern African American Females, Smith and Omari (2005) hypothesized that there would be a positive relationship between cultural values (levels of acculturation) and Body Mass Index (BMI) in their sample. The premise of their study was that African American women with more traditional values would have higher BMI scores, primarily because it has been reported in the literature that African American women are comfortable with larger body size (Striegel-Moore et al., 1998). The hypothesis was not supported. They found that contrary to their expectations, acculturation was not significantly associated with BMI in African American females. This failure to detect an association between BMI and acculturation led to a question about the latent factor structure of the African American Acculturation Scale (AAAS-R) in ...
Cross-sectional study examining the role of acculturation in self-repo by Lacey McQuinn
The objective of this secondary analysis was to examine the role of acculturation and self-reported hypertension in a Mexican-American cohort from Harris County, Texas. Specifically, we examined the acculturation measures of language-based Bidimensional Acculturation Scale (BAS), nativity, and length of United States (U.S) residency. Of 6,229 participants aged 40 and older, 38.0% self-reported hypertension at baseline. Multiple logistic regression was used to estimate the prevalence odds ratios (pOR) for the association of each acculturation measure and hypertension while controlling for confounding. When adjusted for age, gender, body mass index, number of comorbidities, and family history of hypertension, U.S.-born participants were 1.37 times more likely to report having hypertension compared to Mexico-born participants (95% CI: 1.21, 1.55). Similarly, immigrants residing in the U.S. for more than 20 years had an adjusted pOR of 1.40 (95% CI: 1.16, 1.70) as compared to immigrants living in the U.S.

This cross-sectional study recruited a sample of 470 Hispanic women between 22- and 24-week gestation from physician practices and community clinics. We used the CES-D to measure maternal depressive symptoms. We measured acculturation by English proficiency on the Bidimensional Acculturation Scale, residence index by years in the USA minus age, nativity, and generational status. Serum progesterone and E3 were analyzed by EIA. Ultrasound and medical records determined gestational age after delivery. In x analysis, there were a significantly greater percentage of women ...

Acculturation has emerged as an independent risk factor for different health practices across immigrant groups. Prompted by evidence of increasing melanoma incidence among Latinos, the present research investigated the impact of acculturation on Latinos sun safety. Data from 496 Latino respondents to the 2005 Health Information National Trends Survey were analyzed with multiple linear regression and structural equation models. Sunscreen use, seeking shade and wearing protective clothing were the primary outcomes, assessed by frequency scales. Acculturation was the primary predictor, assessed by a composite index. The direct, mediated, and moderated effects of acculturation on sun-safe behaviors were investigated in three studies. Hypothesized mediators included health status, education, and social networks; hypothesized moderators included gender, age, region, and health insurance status.; In adjusted models in Study 1, increased acculturation was associated with decreased use of shade or ...

The purpose of this research is the analysis of the effects of socio - economic factors on acculturation of pre students in Shiraz. In this research (after examining of the previous studies and existing theories) to explain the concept of acculturation the theories of Rogers and Bits have been used and also the socio - economic factors of Parsons theory have been applied. The research is in the form of survey method. In which 400 questionnaires were given to the students randomly. But regarding the sample size by using the Cochran formula (382 persons) 390 questionnaire were analyzed. Pearson correlation test, the rate of the parents income, the familys cost of living, the parents education and the use of computer and internet usage had a significant relationship with the students acculturation. But the relationship between watching T.V, listening to the Radio, reading journals and the number of the people in family (sister and brother) from one hand with the students acculturation was not

Purpose: To assess the impact of factors related to migration and acculturation (country of birth, age at migration and language spoken at home) on refractive errors in the US.. Methods: A total of 5365 adults (2083 Whites, 1464 Blacks, 1175 Hispanics and 643 Chinese) aged 45 to 84 years living in the U.S participated in the study. Information regarding acculturation level including country of birth, age at migration and language spoken at home were collected from interviews. Non-cycloplegic refraction was performed in both eyes of all participants using an autorefractor (NIDEK ARK-760 Autorefractor). Myopia was defined as spherical equivalent of -1.0 diopters (D) or less in the right eye while hyperopia was defined as SE of 1.0 D or more. Multivariate logistic regression model was used to estimate the association between the acculturation variables and myopia.. Results: Participants born in the US were more likely to have myopia (odds ratio [OR]: 1.28; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.03, 1.61) ...

Intergenerational differences in acculturation experiences, food beliefs and perceived health risks among refugees from the...
The present research found that acculturation occurred in the study population in two different forms: changes in lifestyle and dietary acculturation. These findings are congruent with previous studies among migrants from South America, Asia, South-East Asia and Africa to the USA, Canada and Australia( 10 , 13 , 22 - 25 ). The findings from the study suggest that lifestyle changes encountered by refugees related to adapting to the fast-paced and time-constrained lifestyle in Australia which, coupled with a cooler climate, created less time available for physical activity hence increasing the risk of obesity. This is supported by a study by Renzaho et al.( 9 ) which examined lifestyle changes among sub-Saharan African migrants and identified four levels of acculturation: integration (accepting both African and Australian ways of life), assimilation (rejecting African orientation and fully accepting Australian ways of life), marginalisation (rejecting both African and Australian orientations) and ...

Acculturation to global consumer culture : a generational cohort comparison - Strathprints
While on a global scale consumers are becoming more homogeneous, as a result of the increasingly globalized marketplace, researchers suggest that consumers within individual countries are becoming more culturally heterogeneous. Consequently, M. Cleveland and J. Laroche (2007. Acculturation to the global consumer culture: Scale development and research paradigm. Journal of Business Research, 60, 249-259) advocate segmenting consumers across markets on the basis of acculturation to the global consumer culture (AGCC) rather than segmenting at the individual country level. In this they anticipate AGCC will reflect demographic characteristics. However, little empirical work exists to validate or challenge the assertion that demographics moderate AGCC. This exploratory study uses generational cohort theory (GCT) to examine the relationships between cohort membership and level of AGCC among a sample of US consumers (N = 492). The findings suggest AGCC does identify differences between cohorts.. ...

Access to Care, Acculturation, and Risk Factors for Stroke in Mexican Americans | Stroke
This study found that both conventional stroke risk factors and access to care/acculturation variables are associated with stroke in MAs and NHWs. Health disparities likely exist with respect to stroke in MAs and NHWs,2,3,15 and the present study shows that there are relatively small differences among these groups with respect to the differential impact of currently known biological or social factors. Results of this study suggest that risk factor reduction and attention to access to care variables are likely to reduce the burden of stroke in both ethnic populations.. There were similar ethnic results in the association of socioeconomic status (SES) and stroke (Table 3). In this study, SES measures (education and income) were considered measures of access to care. SES was included in access to care analyses because low SES has been shown to be associated with less access to care and less healthcare usage, even among those with health insurance.15-17 Indeed, among both ethnicities, there was no ...
National Scientific Research
In the summer of 2006 The Marin Foundation began to facilitate a four year research study called Religious Acculturation within the LGBT Community. To the researchers knowledge, it has since turned into the largest national research study ever done within the LGBT and religious communities. At the studys projected conclusion on August 1, 2010, TMF is on pace to have achieved their goal of N = 2,000 national participants from the LGBT community, setting the standard for religious research within the LGBT community. (We ended up with 1,713 usable participants).. The goal of the study is to look at the acculturation levels of those within the LGBT community to their past, present and future spiritual and religious practices, if any exist; and how the different constructs surrounding sexuality and religion/spirituality are correlated to those practices. While there has been other research done on LGBT acculturation (Alquijay, 1997; Magana & Carrier, 1991; Seibt et al., 1995); as well as previous ...

Objectives: To determine if acculturation is associated with smoking, alcohol use, and physical activity among older Mexican Americans. Methods: Multivariate analyses of data from the Hispanic Established Populations for the Epidemiologic Studies of the Elderly (H-EPESE) were used. Results: Those who were more proficient in English were more likely to be former or current smokers than nonsmokers and former or current drinkers than abstainers. In addition, those who had greater contact with AngloAmericans were more likely to be former or current smokers than nonsmokers and former or current drinkers than abstainers. Conclusions: These results can assist health promotion programs in identifying those most at risk of engaging in negative health behaviors ...

HOW OUTGROUP SALESPEOPLE FAIL TO FIT IN: A PROPOSED ACCULTURATION EFFECTS FRAMEWORK
The findings of several research studies suggest that gender, culture, and ethnic group are associated reliably with differences in workplace behaviors. This paper looks beyond demographic differences to a broader concept of group-based differences and addresses how differences in the behavioral reactions of outgroup sales trainees affect sales managers attempts to socialize them into the organization. It is important for sales managers to be able to understand how differences are related to workplace behavior as sales forces become increasingly diverse. A framework and research propositions are offered based on theories of socialization, acculturation, and person--organization fit. In addition, interviews were conducted with salespeople to assess the viability of the proposed framework. Several areas of future research emerge as a result of this exploratory discussion ...
Acculturation - Gambling Research Exchange Ontario
Acculturation is the process through which immigrants adjust to the mainstream culture of their newly adopted home. For some, the process of adjusting to a new culture can be very difficult. Individuals may feel discomfort because of perceptions of being uprooted, loss of social status, altered family roles in the new country and perceptions of being excluded and discriminated against. New immigrants are often poor, underemployed, and may also experience loneliness and anxiety. Immigrants experiencing stress due to adjustment difficulties may turn to gambling as a way to cope.. ...

Defining Thai America - Locals connect with Thai culture
From my experiences of being a first generation Thai American I can probably write a book on my experiences and views growing up on the threshhold that we know as the Thai and Thai American culture. When it comes to the question of whether to assimilate or not to assimilate, I must say that the correct question, for Thais and all Asian ethnicities, is whether to educate or not to educate themselves with American culture. By this I mean that many Thais come to America thinking only about work and new job opportunities for themselves while not thinking about the long term social and moral consequences for themselves, their commnunity, and their children in America. The question of assimilating radically answers two questions on the opposite sides of the spectrum that are not favorable: to assimilate is to abandon ones culture and to not assimilate is to not pay ones dues, if you will, in a new country. Either way, loyalties are skewed. This proves to be an obstacle for all Asians and Asian ...

Reformed Reasons: Exodus International and Eternal Security
We will begin to see how the New Testament texts use deep-rooted values and codes to uphold a faithful and obedient response to God, and to sustain the new community in its quest to be conformed to the image of Christ and no longer to the society from which it had separated itself. So says David deSilva in his work in Honor, Patronage, Kinship & Purity. The point is that the group was far more prominent in Greco-Roman culture than it is in many western cultures today and that is especially true in American culture. The extreme individualism of American culture is really quite antithetical to the culture in which the NT documents began to exist. This fact has served as a serious impediment to the American Christians ability to understand the text of NT Scripture. If we had a better grasp of the group we would be in a much better place to understand how the audience of the NT saw themselves within the context of the Christian group. Notice that deSilva implies the existence of a group was in ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Whats in a game? Acculturation and drinking game behaviors among Asian American young adults. AU - Zamboanga, Byron L.. AU - Audley, Shannon. AU - Iwamoto, Derek K.. AU - Tomaso, Cara C.. AU - Ramos, Genevieve. AU - Schwartz, Seth J. PY - 2016/9/1. Y1 - 2016/9/1. N2 - Research on acculturation and drinking behaviors among Asian American young adults has yielded null and mixed findings. Moreover, very little is known regarding the link between acculturation and context-specific risky drinking activities, such as drinking games participation, in this population. Drinking games have been linked with a number of negative drinking outcomes; however, some games pose more risk than others. In the current article, we present a conceptual framework to delineate mechanisms that may underlie Asian American young adults risk for participating in context-specific risky drinking activities and experiencing negative drinking consequences. We use a bidimensional approach to examine how ...

Depressive symptoms and health problems among Chinese immigrant elders in the US and Chinese elders in China, UNCG NC DOCKS ...
Abstract: Objectives: Researchers speculate that depression tends to be more prevalent among immigrant elders due to their lack of resources, acculturation stress, language problems, and social isolation. However, other characteristics of elderly immigrants, such as the healthy immigrant effect, may counteract these potential risk factors. This study examined whether depressive symptoms differed between Chinese immigrant elders and their counterparts in China and whether health conditions were similarly associated with depressive symptoms in these two samples. Methods: Depression and health information was collected from 177 Chinese immigrant elders in Boston, the US in 2000 and from 428 education and gender-matched elders in Shanghai, China in 2003. Results: Chinese immigrants had a significantly lower score on the modified Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) and its subscales: somatic symptoms and depressive affect. The association remained for the subscale depressive ...

This study investigated the relationship of Baumrinds (1971) parenting dimensions (Nurturance/warmth and Monitoring/control), Academic Self-concept (ASC), and acculturation with GPA in a sample of Latino community college students (N=148). The participants were of Mexican or Mexican American ethnicity, 51.4% of whom were second (i.e., participants were first in the family to be born in the United States) and 32.6% third and above generations (i.e. both participants and their parents were born in the United States).; Results showed that the separate Parenting dimensions were not significant predictors of GPA. However, as shown by previous research, GPAs strongest predictor was ASC, accounting for 10.1% of the variance in GPA. Acculturation moderated this effect, lowering the variance percentage to 7%. At the same time, ASCs highest predictor (in a negative way) was Fathers Monitoring/control. The fact that high monitoring in fathers predicted lower ASC, partially supports the application of ...

A longitudinal study of family process influences on socioeconomic status achievement among Southeast Asian immigrant...
Based on Bronfenbrenners Process-Person-Context-Time research model, this study explores individual factor effects of family context (i.e., parents acculturation), family processes (i.e., parental involvement and parent-child conflict), and adolescents individual characteristics (i.e., self-esteem and gender) on adolescent childrens SES achievement (i.e., highest education and annual income) in adulthood. In addition, this study explores the interplay effect of those family and individual factors on adolescents SES achievement in adulthood. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) procedures were used because this study aims to test the conceptual model of Southeast Asian immigrant adolescents long-term SES achievement using the Children of Immigrant Longitudinal Study, a ten-year national panel data. The hypothesized relationships in the model include the followings: (a) positive effect of parents acculturation on parental involvement and on adolescents SES achievement in adulthood and ...
Preventing Chronic Disease: November 2011: 11 0091
In keeping with findings from previous studies of US adults, we found that both non-Hispanic whites and Hispanics failed to meet Healthy People 2010 targets for consumption of both fruits and vegetables. Although more Hispanics than non-Hispanic whites met the fruit objective (+5.6%), more non-Hispanic whites than Hispanics met the vegetable objective (−9.6%).. Our results indicated that more Spanish-speaking Hispanics met the fruit objective than did English-speaking Hispanics (+6.3%). The acculturation effect on fruit consumption, as measured by survey language preference, was strengthened following adjustment for sociodemographic variables in regression models. The findings for lower fruit consumption among English-speaking Hispanics are similar to those from the National Cancer Institute 7-item fruit and vegetable screener, which indicated that greater language acculturation among Mexican-American women was associated with significantly decreased fruit consumption (11).. Conversely, fewer ...
Adherence to dietary recommendations among Spanish and immigrant adolescents living in Spain: the AFINOS study
Results were less consistent when we compared the two populations in terms of their excessive or deficient consumption of meat and excessive intake of eggs. Thus, Models 1 and 2 revealed slight differences in the likelihood of eating too much or too little meat between the Spanish and immigrant adolescents (OR increased from 1.41 to 1.52, p , 0.05) but these differences vanished when the model was adjusted for co-variables related to diet (Model 3). Table IV reveals a higher likelihood of including too many eggs in the diet of immigrants across all regression models (OR increased from 1.70 to 1.81; p , 0.01) but in this case an effect of length of residence was detected. This meant that this heightened likelihood was lost in the immigrants who had lived for at least 6 years in Spain while it persisted in those who had spent less time in this country (OR increased from 1.91 to 2.16, p , 0.01).. Discussion. The findings of this study reveal that the adolescent immigrants in Spain examined here ...

ScholarSpace at University of Hawaii at Manoa: The effect of cultural orientations of individuals on intercultural sensitivity...
This study examines the relationships between individuals with different cultural orientations (bicultural, independent, interdependent, and marginal) proposed by Kim et al. (1996) and intercultural sensitivity and perceived communication predispositions (classroom communication apprehension and argumentativeness). Cultural orientations of individuals were treated as rank-ordering (Bicultural = 4, Independent = 3, Interdependent = 2, and Marginal = 1). In the hypothesized path model, it is expected that ones bicultural level increases ones level of intercultural sensitivity, which, in turn, leads to a higher degree of argumentativeness and a lower level of classroom communication apprehension. Similarly, it is hypothesized that ones bicultural level decreases ones level of intercultural sensitivity, which, in turn, leads to a lower degree of argumentativeness and a higher level of classroom communication apprehension. Data to test the model were drawn from both the undergraduate and graduate ...

Acculturation and risky injection practices among Hispanic injectors | RTI
Ethnic and gender-based correlates of safer needle use among 528 out-of-treatment drug injectors in San Antonio, Texas, were studied. The sample was 67% male, 75% Hispanic, 11% non-Hispanic white, and 14% African-American. Forty-seven percent of Hispanics were classified as high-acculturation, and 53% were classified as low-acculturation. HIV seroprevalence was 1.7%. Safer needle use was defined as never sharing syringes that had not been disinfected with bleach. Variables associated with safer needle use in bivariate analyses were entered into a multiple logistic regression analysis.

Evidence from migrant population studies and secular trend data indicates that environmental factors play a role in the etiology of non-insulin-dependent (type II) diabetes. These environmental factors appear to be concomitants of the process whereby traditional populations become modernized or westernized and include increased intake of total calories, fat, and sucrose, decreased intake of total and complex carbohydrates, including fiber, and decreased physical exercise. There also appears to be a postmodernization process, which we have characterized as the descending limb of the curve. In Mexican Americans in San Antonio, the prevalence of type II diabetes declines with acculturation to the values, attitudes, and behaviors of postmodernized American society. However, examination of the dietary and exercise concomitants of this process revealed a mixed picture. There was some suggestion that Mexican-American women, although not men, had entered onto the descending limb of the curve. ...
Skeptical Eye: August 2015
Non-white immigrants do vote overwhelmingly for Democrats and overwhelmingly favor expanding state involvement in the economy, relative to white people in America. This video also contains a cogent critique of Alex Nowrastehs attempts to rebut this argument. In short, Nowrasteh claims that immigrants do not vote markedly for expansion of government involvement in the economy, relative to native-born Americans, but he aggregates all immigrants into one homogeneous blob, and this leads him to draw highly misleading conclusions. When immigrants are disaggregated by race, noticeable differences begin to emerge between how, say, Hispanic immigrants vote and how white immigrants, or white native-born Americans vote. Nowrasteh also claims that immigrants completely assimilate to American culture within three generations and adopt views that are virtually indistinguishable from those of native-born Americans, but this is only true when one considers the entire aggregate of immigrants. When one ...

HCV Research and News: Americans Live Sicker, Die Younger
Americans who do reach age 50 generally arrive at this age in poorer health than their counterparts in other high-income countries, and as older adults they face greater morbidity and mortality from chronic diseases that arise from risk factors that are often established earlier in life, the report stated.. While there are many possible causes, one leading factor is American culture, which tends to cherish personal autonomy and less government intrusion -- attitudes that produce more unsafe and unhealthy behaviors, Woolf said.. Americans also rely on cars for transportation more and eat food generally prepared in a less healthy way. And the U.S. has a smaller number of primary care providers than its peer countries and greater problems coordinating care, the study found.. Despite Americas severe disadvantage in health outcomes, the research found hospital mortality rates are comparable to other countries. Its when people leave the hospital and go out into the community that quality of life ...

Film review: GOD BLESS AMERICA, from Built For Speed - 88.3 Southern FM
Like Falling Down and Taxi Driver, God Bless America sees a disillusioned middle-aged white American flip out and go on a killing spree. After losing his job, being dumped by his wife and discovering that hes terminally ill, doughy downtrodden middle-aged guy Frank (Joel Murray) decides to he has to kill the sort of selfish, hateful people he thinks have made his life a misery. For him, the most glaring examples of these people are the stars of nasty, trashy reality TV. As he sets out on his quest to annihilate the TV trash bags, hes soon partnered by disturbingly perky but bloodthirsty teen, Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr).. The film purports to be a satire of American culture, particularly exploitative reality TV like American Idol, TMZ and those Bachelor type shows that compel women to attack each other. Admittedly, the initial parody of car crash TV cleverly and amusingly dissects the ugly, heartless attitudes that feed the American (and to some extent the worlds) psyche. Also, Franks ...
HENRY OSSAWA TANNER
In 1893 on a short return visit to the United States, Tanner painted his most famous work, The Banjo Lesson. The painting shows an elderly black man teaching what is assumed to be his grandson how to play the banjo. This deceptively simple-looking work explores several important themes. Blacks had long been stereotyped as entertainers in American culture, and the image of a black man playing the banjo appears throughout American art of the late 19th century. Thomas Worth, Willy Miller, Walter M. Dunk, Eastman Johnson and Tanner s own teacher Thomas Eakins had tackled the subject in their artwork. This images however are often reduced to a minstrel type portrayal. Tanner works against this familiar stereotype by producing a sensitive reinterpretation. Instead of a generalization the painting portrays a specific moment of human interaction. The two characters concentrate intently on the task before them. They seem to be oblivious to the rest of the world which magnifies the sense of real contact ...

I mean… mothers, aunts, and sisters and cousins who came in to care and were provided with this role model mostly from these monstrous white foreign doctors who would not touch anybody. The place was utterly… I mean, it was life-threatening because of the diseases that were there. Hepatitis of all sorts. Parasites, intestinal parasites of all sorts, strictly from a public health kind of problems. Universal scabies in the place. Malnutrition of every conceivable kind.

Origins of My Bad
On the other hand, its an idiom, which means its an expression that doesnt necessarily follow the rules of grammar. Its just a way of saying something. Lots of common and accepted expressions are grammatically incorrect in the same way.. Some brief research shows that my bad has been around since at least the 1980s. It seems to have arisen out of urban American culture. Some bloggers have attributed the expression to Manut Bol, an NBA star in the 80s who immigrated from Africa and whose native tongue was Dinka. The suggestion is that he meant my fault but didnt have a sufficient grasp of English vocabulary. His teammates teasingly picked it up and it spread from there. Most experts dismiss this as unfounded conjecture, but I thought it was an interesting story (Bol, by the way, was the tallest player in NBA history at 77″)..
