Different prevalences of Renibacterium salmoninarum detected by ELISA in Alaskan chinook salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha spawned from freshwater and seawater. (1/747)

Soluble antigen of Renibacterium salmoninarum (Rs) was detected by a polyclonal enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) at significantly higher prevalences in adult chinook salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha that matured in freshwater than in the same cohort of fish spawned after maturation in seawater. The cumulative results were consistent during 4 yr of comparison at the Little Port Walter Hatchery on Baranof Island, Alaska, USA. Possible causes for this difference are discussed. Maturation of chinook salmon broodstock in seawater has become a practical strategy at this hatchery to reduce the prevalence of Rs-positive parent fish and the numbers of culled eggs.  (+info)

Mercury in Alaskan Eskimo mothers and infants. (2/747)

The potential danger of natural mercury accumulation in the diet of the Eskimo is evaluated through mercury levels determined in cord blood, placenta, maternal blood, hair, and milk of 38 maternal-infant pairs from Anchorage and the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. Although mercury levels are not discernably dangerous, trends to larger accumulations in maternal and fetal RBC and placental tissue with proximity to the sea and consumption of seals during pregnancy provide the basis for considering possible indicators of neonatal involvement. Mercury level in RBC from cord blood appeared as the best potential indicator of this involvement, although relationships with the mother's diet and level of mercury in the placenta also appear useful. In this area, average and maximal mercury levels in cord blood are 39 and 78 ng/ml, respectively, far below the acknowledged toxic level in infants of these mothers who eat seals or fish every day during their pregnancy.  (+info)

Clinical services assessment and reengineering: lessons learned. (3/747)

Healthcare enterprises often "acquire and install" picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) without examining many of the care delivery processes and information flows that will be affected. Many times these unexamined factors can delay or be the cause of failure of the PACS project. This article presents issues that were worked through as part of a PACS clinical services assessment and reengineering analysis for several US military medical treatment facilities.  (+info)

Seroepidemiology of California and Bunyamwera serogroup (Bunyaviridae) virus infections in native populations of Alaska. (4/747)

This study investigated the geographic distribution and prevalence of antibodies to California and Bunyamwera serogroup viruses in Native populations of Alaska, and demographic and ecologic risk factors associated with exposure. Sera (n = 1,635) from 18 communities were screened using an ELISA. All age groups were tested for antibodies to Jamestown Canyon (JC), Inkoo (INK), snowshoe hare (SSH), and Northway (NOR) viruses; persons > or = 45 years old (n = 90) from six communities were additionally tested for antibodies to Tahyna (TAH), Batai (BAT), Cache Valley (CV), and Sindbis (SIN) viruses. Thirty free-ranging mammals were tested by a plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT) for antibodies to all eight viruses and to Getah (GET) virus. In Natives, overall antibody prevalence was 24.9% (JC = 17.6%, monotypic JC = 6.5%, INK = 11.1%, monotypic INK = 0.6%, SSH = 6.8%, monotypic SSH = 3.5%, and NOR = 6.2%). Five TAH, CV, and BAT virus exposures may be serologic cross-reactions, and no SIN virus antibodies were detected. Sindbis-like virus antibodies were found in 30% of the mammals. Most mammals had antibodies to NOR (83.3%) and California serogroup (70.0%) viruses; no GET virus exposures were found. Significant risk factors for human bunyavirus exposures were age group, ethnic-linguistic group, biotic province, climate zone, terrestrial vegetation, and presence of some ungulates and small mammals in communities. Sex was not a significant risk factor.  (+info)

Severe respiratory syncytial virus disease in Alaska native children. RSV Alaska Study Group. (5/747)

Hospitalization rates for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection range from 1 to 20/1000 infants. To determine the rate and severity of RSV infections requiring hospitalization for infants in the Yukon-Kuskokwim (YK) Delta of Alaska, a 3-year prospective surveillance study was conducted. The annual rate of RSV hospitalization for YK Delta infants <1 year of age was 53-249/1000. RSV infection was the most frequent cause of infant hospitalization. RSV disease severity did not differ among non-high-risk infants in the YK Delta and at Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH). On average, 1/125 infants born in the YK Delta required mechanical ventilation for RSV infection. During the peak season, approximately $1034/child <3 years of age was spent on RSV hospitalization in the YK Delta. In YK Delta infants +info)

Outbreak of influenza A infection among travelers--Alaska and the Yukon Territory, May-June 1999. (6/747)

On June 18, 1999, CDC and Health Canada received reports from public health authorities in Alaska and the Yukon Territory about clusters of febrile respiratory illness and associated pneumonia among travelers and tourism workers. This report presents information about the outbreak. Laboratory evidence, including rapid influenza A antigen-detection tests and viral cultures from respiratory specimens, has implicated influenza A virus as the cause of illness.  (+info)

Epizootiology of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus in Pacific herring from the spawn-on-kelp fishery in Prince William Sound, Alaska, USA. (7/747)

Both the prevalence and tissue titer of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) increased in Pacific herring Clupea pallasi following their introduction into net pens (pounds) used in the closed pound spawn-on-kelp (SOK) fishery in Prince William Sound, Alaska. VHSV was also found in water samples from inside and outside the SOK pounds after herring had been confined for several days; however, water samples taken near wild free-ranging, spawning herring either failed to test positive or tested weakly positive for virus. Little or no virus was found in tissue samples from free-ranging, spawning herring captured from the vicinity of the pounds, nor did the prevalence of VHSV increase following spawning as it did in impounded herring. The data indicated that increased prevalences of VHSV were correlated with confinement of herring for the closed pound SOK fishery and that infection was spread within the pounds through waterborne exposure to virus particles originating from impounded fish. In addition, pounds containing predominantly young fish had higher prevalences of VHSV, suggesting that older fish may be partially immune, perhaps as a result of previous infection with the virus. Operation of SOK pounds during spawning seasons in which young herring predominate may amplify the disease and possibly exacerbate the population fluctuations observed in wild herring stocks.  (+info)

Asthma prevalence among American Indian and Alaska Native children. (8/747)

OBJECTIVES: Although asthma is the most common chronic childhood illness in the United States, little is known about its prevalence among American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children. The authors used the latest available household survey data to estimate the prevalence of asthma in this population. METHODS: The authors analyzed data for children ages 1 through 17 years from the 1987 Survey of American Indians and Alaska Natives (SAIAN) and the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES). At least one member of each AI/AN household included in the SAIAN was eligible for services through the Indian Health Service. RESULTS: The weighted prevalence of parent-reported asthma was 7.06% among 2288 AI/AN children ages 1-17 (95% CI 5.08, 9.04), compared with a US estimate of 8.40% for children ages 1-17 based on the 1987 NMES (95% CI 7.65, 9.15). The AI/AN sample was too small to yield stable estimates for a comparison between AI/AN children and all US children when the data were stratified according to household income and metropolitan vs non-metropolitan residence. The unadjusted asthma prevalence rates were similar for AI/AN children and for children in the NMES sample. CONCLUSIONS: In 1987, the prevalence of parent-reported asthma was similar for AI/AN children in the SAIAN sample and for children in the NMES sample. More recent data are needed to better understand the current prevalence of asthma among AI/AN children.  (+info)

In April 2008, the Arctic Investigations Program (AIP) of CDC was informed by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) of a large number of Alaska Native (AN) children living in a remote region of Alaska who required full mouth dental rehabilitations (FMDRs), including extractions and/or restorations of multiple carious teeth performed under general anesthesia. In this remote region, approximately 400 FMDRs were performed in AN children aged ,6 years in 2007; the region has approximately 600 births per year. Dental caries can cause pain, which can affect childrens normal growth and development (1). AIP and Alaska DHSS conducted an investigation of dental caries and associated risk factors among children in the remote region. A convenience sample of children aged 4--15 years in five villages (two with fluoridated water and three without) was examined to estimate dental caries prevalence and severity. Risk factor information was obtained by interviewing parents. Among children ...
Southeast Alaska is the northern terminus of the Inside Passage, a protected waterway of convoluted passages between islands and fjords, beginning in Puget Sound in Washington state. This was an important travel corridor for Tlingit and Haida Native peoples, as well as gold-rush era steamships. In modern times it is an important route for Alaska Marine Highway ferries as well as cruise ships. Southeast Alaska has a land area of 35,138 square miles (91,010 km2)[citation needed] comprising seven entire boroughs and two census areas, in addition to the portion of the Yakutat Borough lying east of 141° West longitude. Although it has only 6.14 percent of Alaskas land area, it is larger than the state of Maine, and almost as large as the state of Indiana. The Southeast Alaskan coast is roughly as long as the west coast of Canada.

Alaska Native children are disproportionately affected by early childhood caries, compared to all U.S children. Dental care needs for adults and children in rural Alaska far exceed the acute care and prevention resources available. As a result, there is a high level of dental morbidity present among adults that likely contributes to early transmission of mutans streptococci (MS) from adult caregivers to infants in the household. Furthermore, the cultural practice of pre-mastication of solid food for infant feeding amplifies the transmission of oral secretions from adult to child. The prevention of early MS acquisition and subsequent caries in infants and toddlers requires efforts starting at birth. Since Alaska Natives are a rural population at high risk for caries, interruption of vertical transmission of MS using a combination of improved oral hygiene practices, and topical antimicrobials and bacteriostatic agents may be an ideal prevention strategy for childhood caries. Chlorhexidine and ...

Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) infections are common in southwestern Alaska. Outbreak strains have been shown to carry the genes for Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL). To determine if carriage of PVL-positive CA-MRSA increased the risk for subsequent soft tissue infection, we conducted a retrospective cohort study by reviewing the medical records of 316 persons for 3.6 years after their participation in a MRSA nasal colonization survey. Demographic, nasal carriage, and antimicrobial drug use data were analyzed for association with skin infection risk. Skin infections were more likely to develop in MRSA carriers than in methicillin-susceptible S. aureus carriers or noncarriers of S. aureus during the first follow-up year, but not in subsequent years. Repeated skin infections were more common among MRSA carriers. In an area where PVL-containing MRSA is prevalent, skin infection risk was increased among MRSA nasal carriers compared with methicillin-susceptible S.

Basic income is a regular unconditional cash grant paid to all citizens without any means test or work requirement. Its often dismissed as a utopian idea.. However, a basic income, or something very close to it, exists today in Alaska. Its called the Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) or sometimes "the Alaska Dividend.". The PFD has been paying annual dividends to Alaskans since 1982 with no conditions except citizenship, residency, and the willingness to fill out a form. After following the Alaska Dividend since 1999, and I want to share six lessons that supporters of progressive economic policy should learn from what I call "the Alaska model," but first some basic background.. In 1956, Alaska ratified a constitution recognizing joint ownership of unoccupied land and natural resources. In 1967, North Americas largest oil reserve was discovered in state owned areas on Alaskas North Slope. In 1976, a state referendum created the Alaska Permanent Fund (APF), a portfolio of diversified assets, into ...

Anchorage: ACE Air Cargo flew an injured seal pup 800 miles from Dutch Harbor to Anchorage for treatment at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward.. Dutch Harbor residents found the four- to five-week old pup on a beach early May 19 and watched her all day to keep local dogs and predators away.. Reid Brewer, a Dutch Harbor-based University of Alaska Fairbanks Marine Animal Program biologist, examined the pup and feared she wouldn t survive the night.. He called ACE, and ACE team member Lia Porras helped him load the pup into a portable dog kennel for shipment to Anchorage.. An Alaska SeaLife Center technician met ACE Flight 65 in Anchorage to pick up the pup, assess her condition and start hydrating her immediately. The examination showed that the pup s body temperature was normal, which was crucial for recovery.. "I credit ACE s staff completely for her temperature because they kept the plane warm enough for the entire flight," said Tim Lebling, Alaska SeaLife Center stranding ...
Bristol Bay in southwest Alaska supports the worlds greatest wild salmon fishery. And now scientists have a new understanding why: water temperature and stream flow. Variation in the temperature and flow of streams is key to supporting not just Bristol Bays prolific salmon populations, but also the areas immense wildlife diversity from bears to birds to plants, according to new research presented this week at the Ecological Society of America meetings in Portland, Oregon. Working in the Wood River watershed of Southwest Alaska, scientists found that the diversity of stream conditions results in salmon that spawn at different times throughout the season, thereby extending the time that predators and scavengers can feast on this important food supply. As the lead author of the research explains, "Animals like coastal brown bears and Glaucus-winged gulls gorge themselves at one stream for a few weeks and then just move to another stream that might have water temperatures a few degrees warmer and ...

Commercial fishermen and tribal leaders from Southeast Alaska are in Washington, D.C, this week. Theyre there to press for U.S. State Department action to protect their regions copius wild salmon runs, thriving tourism industry, and cultural resources from large-scale mine projects planned for neighboring British Columbia. Southeast Alaska is home to the lush, 17-million-acres Tongass National Forest.. Five big B.C. mines are proposed for development upstream from Southeast Alaska in watersheds that produce healthy and lucrative salmon runs. The group in D.C., carrying a letter signed by 40 organizations, tribes and individuals, says safeguards are currently lacking to ensure that Canadian mine development doesnt harm one of Southeast Alaskas main economic engines -- salmon.. The mine projects are in a very bad location from a fishing standpoint. They sit in the headwaters of the Taku, Unuk and Stikine Rivers. These international rivers support important commercial, sport, and customary and ...
More than 700 000 American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children younger than 19 years old live in the United States.1 These AI/AN children experience higher rates of morbidity and mortality from unintentional injuries than do other US children. The 881 injury deaths to AI children between 1992 and 1994 translate to an overall rate of 52.3 deaths per 100 000 children per year. This rate is almost twice the US rate of 28.3 per 100 000 children for all races (1993).2 Rates of injury deaths are high for rural and urban AI/AN populations.3. Although rates of injury death have dropped considerably during the past 25 years, they remain disproportionately high among AI/AN children for the most common causes of injury. Fatality rates for motor vehicle occupant injuries are 3 times higher for AI/AN children than for white and black children.1 Pedestrian-motor vehicle collision deaths are almost 4 times that for all US races combined, and drowning, the second leading cause of injury death, occurs at ...
Lithofacies associations and successions of the Jura-Cretaceous Gravina belt on Admiralty, Douglas, and northern Kupreanof Islands (southeast Alaska) are dominated by deep-marine slope, inner-fan, and middle-fan depositional environments. Non-channelized outer-fan facies are exposed over broad areas on eastern Kupreanof and Mitkof Islands. Four turbidite systems are recognized: a Late Jurassic slope wedge (southeastern Admiralty Island), a Cretaceous, elongate submarine fan system (Admiralty Island to Kupreanof and Mitkof Islands), and smaller-scale system(s), ?entirely of Cretaceous age (Seymour Canal to Douglas Island). Sandstones of the Seymour Canal Formation (Gravina belt) exhibit framework modes typical of detritus shed from undissected arc sources. Sandstones of channelized conglomeratic facies are slightly enriched in quartz, sedimentary, metasedimentary, and plutonic detritus relative to thin-bedded turbidite sandstones; they record local unroofing of the underlying Alexander terrane, ...

The climate of Alaska has changed considerably over the past 50-plus years. However, human emissions of greenhouse gases are not the primary reason. Instead, the timing of the swings of a periodic, natural cycle-the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO)-has made a strong imprint on the observed climate of Alaska since the mid-20th century. Despite its established existence and influence, this natural cycle is often overlooked or ignored in zealous attempts to paint the current climate of Alaska as being one primarily molded by the emissions from anthropogenic industrial activities. In truth, the climate of Alaska and the ecosystems influenced by it have been subject to the cycles of the PDO and other natural variations since the end of the last ice age (some 12,000 years ago) and likely for eons prior. It is primarily these natural cycles that are currently shaping Alaskas long-term climate and weather fluctuations. Local and regional processes are the most important determinants of the climate ...

Marc Korn went North to Alaska. The 56-year-old former owner of Fairchild Manor in Lewiston, Marc Irwin Korn, is alive and well and working as a consultant in Alaska. Readers may recall that Korn advertised on the back cover of the Niagara Falls Reporter for about three months in 2011. Since we had extended him credit for the advertising, we hardly expected that, upon our gentle urging for payment, Korn would present us with bogus checks. But writing bad checks is almost a disease with the soft spoken, weasel of a man with a badly-dyed, misshapen hair transplant. A few months ago, C Care Services, a company that offers in-home non-medical care services, hired Korn, then a consultant for Global Resources in Northbrook, Ill., to come to Anchorage, Alaska, to help them out for a reported $250 per hour. Several people, after filing complaints against Korn with various agencies in Alaska, contacted the Reporter. They allege that Korn devised a plan to help the company defraud Alaska Medicaid. The ...

My name is Tiko Crofoot. My parents, my sister, and I have been Alaska residents for many years now. I am active duty military, currently stationed in Virginia, and am getting ready for my fifth deployment to CENTCOM as a U.S. Navy SEAL. For the past two years, I was denied my Permanent Fund Dividend because of a clause stating that an absence from the state of 10 years, even if due to military requirements and even if you have maintained residency the entire time, negates eligibility. I have gone back to Alaska every year since being in the military, and have spent the requisite amount of time there to qualify for the PFD and to retain my residency. I have an Alaska drivers license, vote in all Alaska elections, have it listed as my home of record for the military and plan to retire there once my military service is complete.

The needs of Urban American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) populations are often not well understood. In order to inform programs and services, the Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake (UIC-SL), in cooperation with researchers from the University of Utah, undertook a community needs assessment of AI/AN living along Utahs Wasatch Front. A 60-item questionnaire was developed to capture information about health status, services used, unmet needs, and common sources of information about AI/AN community events and activities. Study participants (n?=?336) were a convenience sample. Descriptive statistics, including mean, standard deviation, percentage, and 95% confidence intervals, were calculated. The most common health provider diagnosed medical conditions included hypertension, obesity, and diabetes. The prevalence of violence, substance abuse, and mental health conditions were also high among study participants and their families. Compared to the general Utah population, study participants experienced ...

Purpose: To describe and compare the impact of universal infant immunization with 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV7) on invasive Streptococcus pneumoniae infection, nasopharyngeal carriage, and antibiotic resistance in Alaskan Native and non-Native children and adults. Methods: The medical literature concerning the epidemiology of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) and the effects of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine on the incidence, nasopharyngeal carriage, and antibiotic resistance of S pneumoniae was reviewed with special emphasis on the effects in the Alaska Native population. Results: Alaska Native children experienced the highest incidence of IPD in the United States. The greatest difference in IPD was among children younger than 2 years for whom the annualized rate in Alaskan Native children (450/100,000 per year) was 3 times higher than for non-Native Alaskan children younger than 2 years who had rates similar to the overall US population. In the first 3 years after beginning routine
Health care accessibility for rural Alaskans with disabilities is the topic of a focus group tonight in Nome.. Amanda Cooper is the Alaska Health and Disability Program Manager and is leading the sessions, focusing on quality of life.. She said, "Adults Alaskans with disabilities experience disparities in nearly every core health area. For example," Cooper explains, "Alaskans with disabilities have a higher prevalence rate of obesity, a higher rate of tobacco use, a higher rate of inactivity, and a higher rate of diabetes.". Cooper said Alaskans with disabilities feel health care services are limited to them, and they also show a lack of preventative screenings like pap smears and mammograms.. But this information comes from data collected in urban areas-Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley. The Alaska Health and Disability Program is seeking a more state-wide perspective to close the gaps in health disparities for individuals with disabilities.. Now they are coming to rural places like Nome to hold ...

Objective: This study examined racial/ethnic differences in the prevalence of diabetes mellitus in a nationally representative sample of adults with and without common psychiatric disorders. Method: Data were drawn from Wave 2 of the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (N= 34,653). Logistic regression models adjusting for sociodemographic variables and diabetes risk factors were used to examine racial/ethnic differences in 12-month prevalence rates of diabetes by psychiatric status. Results: Among people without psychiatric disorders, African Americans, Hispanics, and American Indians/Alaska Natives, but not Asians/Pacific Islanders, had significantly higher rates of diabetes than non-Hispanic whites even after adjusting for socio-demographic variables and diabetes risk factors. In the presence of psychiatric disorders, these health disparities persisted for African Americans and Hispanics, but not for American Indians/Alaska Natives. No significant interactions between race

The Kittlitzs murrelet (Brachyramphus brevirostris), a small pursuit-diving seabird in the family Alcidae, occurs across much of coastal Alaska and parts of the Russian Far East. Glacier Bay National Park, located in Southeast Alaska, is believed to support approximately 37% of the worldwide breeding population of Kittlitzs murrelets during the summer months. Recent concern over apparent population declines in Alaska, coupled with the Parks dual mandate of resource preservation and visitation, led to this study. Cruise ships, although not the most numerous vessel type operating in Glacier Bay, have previously been identified as the vessel type eliciting the greatest disturbance response from Kittlitzs murrelets. During the murrelet breeding seasons in 2011 and 2012, my field assistants and I collected focal observations of 4,251 Brachyramphus murrelets from the bow of cruise ships traveling through Glacier Bay. Identification of murrelets to species was hampered by both the distance at which ...

In Alaska, sometimes weird things happen. Take for example the case of Clifton Vial, a guy from Nome Alaska. He was out driving one day, and suddenly found himself and his Toyota Tacoma pickup stuck about 40 miles north of Nome Alaska.. For those of you not familiar with the wilds of Alaska 40 miles north of Nome defines "nowhere." Im thinking he was probably on an old mining road, and managed to slide off of it. There are no trees in this part of the world, and nothing more than peat moss for ground cover. If you run off of the roadway surface you are stuck! In this case Vial ran into a snow bank. He tried to free himself before he realized just how stuck his truck was.. In total his ordeal took 60 hours before rescuers found him. In the mean time it was a battle for warmth. All he had for sustinance was a few frozen cans of Coors light. Poor guy.. He cut the tops off of the cans and dug the frozen liquid out like a can of baked beans with the blade of his pocket knife.

Championed by a U.S. Senators Lisa Murkowski, Dan Sullivan, and Congressman Don Young, the Senate on Tuesday passed by unanimous consent legislation to strengthen and reform a vital Native employment and training program commonly known as the "477 Program." H.R. 228, passed by the House last February, now awaits the presidents signature.. "The Alaska Federation of Natives applauds the leadership shown by our congressional delegation in developing and advancing this legislation," said AFN President Julie Kitka. "The bill improves the 477 program and, most importantly, makes it permanent - so we dont have to keep returning to Congress to request an extension. That is great news for Alaska Natives and tribes across the country.". The 477 program has been a very effective tool for education and training because it allows tribes and Alaska Native entities to combine employment, education and training-related grants from thirteen different programs into a single plan, with a single budget and a ...

By George Happ and Christy Yuncker Happ. The swirling hordes of sandhill cranes that roost in the Platte shallows in March showcase one of the great wildlife migrations on our planet. The birds jostle one another like New Years eve revelers in Times Square. Individuals are lost in the mass of bouncing bodies. An alien from space, looking down on such a throng, probably wouldnt guess that our fundamental social unit is a family. For cranes as for people, understanding the species takes more than gawking at a mob. We have been privileged to study the social interactions within one particular sandhill crane family. Every April for over a decade we have watched "our" pair of cranes drop from the sky onto our backyard, a snowy bog near Fairbanks, Alaska. These birds, whom we know as "Millie" and "Roy," left the Platte River valley two to three weeks earlier, as reported for a similar group of Fairbanks cranes followed by satellite tracking (Jason Caikoski and John Wright, Alaska Department Fish and ...

With the grant received from Animal Farm Foundation, Straw For Dogs sent 30 bales of straw to rural Alaska. Without road access, all supplies are flown in these areas, which is very costly. Everts Air Cargo donated shipping as space was available from Anchorage to Canine Comfort LLC in Aniak and Friends of Kotzebue K9 in Kotzebue. Ravn Alaska and Arctic Backcountry Flying Service LLC also donated air freight to get supplies to smaller, more remote villages.. By working with nonprofits and businesses to distribute supplies on a local level, Straw For Dogs can help reach dogs in the far areas of Alaska, where we may not have volunteers, but the need is great. The living conditions for humans and dogs alike are very tough in Bush communities.. Families in these areas might be struggling to make ends meet, which can make it even more difficult to provide for their pets. Our standard procedures include building a relationship with the caretaker to follow up regularly and it can be challenging to find ...

Alaskas Boardwalk Lodge is an oceanfront resort located on breathtaking Prince of Wales Island in temperate southeast Alaska. Construction of the main lodge began in 1990, where each log was felled and towed across the bay. In true Alaskan spirit, the raw lumber was milled, peeled and notched by hand. Expansion of the resort entailed the building of a second lodge, providing accommodations for up to 19 guests.
Edna Bay is a census-designated place (CDP) on Kosciusko Island in Prince of Wales-Hyder Census Area, Alaska, United States. The population was 49 at the 2000 census.. Edna Bay is one of only two populated towns on Kosciusko Island, the other being Cape Pole, and has both year-round and seasonal residents. Year-round residents are either retired, or work primarily in the fishing and logging industries. Some permanent residents also work seasonally off-island in various industries. Due to the very remote location of Edna Bay and the subsequent difficulty and expense of traveling between Edna Bay and larger S.E. Alaska communities, subsistence hunting, fishing, and gathering comprise a large portion of the livelihood activities for residents of Edna Bay. Starting in 2008 Edna Bay will also be home to an Engineering and Software Development company, made possible due to the broadband-internet service brought to the community by the State of Alaska and AT&T.. As of 2007 Edna Bay hosts a combined ...

This study will provide an accessible and affordable means for future monitoring of tobacco use in Alaska and to determine the exacerbating effects of tobacco use on Vitamin D deficiency. Currently, there is no low-cost method available in Alaska for detecting nicotine levels in humans and tobacco and cigarette use in the State is common and particularly high among Alaska Natives. In fact, according to the National Health Interview Survey, the rate of cigarette smoking among Alaska Natives is almost twice higher than in the general US population. Alaska Natives have high rates of tobacco-related deaths and lung cancer remains to be one of the leading causes of all cancer-related deaths especially in rural regions of Alaska. Residents of Northern climates have found to have lower levels of Vitamin D than populations in southern or mid latitudes. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to many forms of cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, autoimmune diseases and heart disease. This second phase of this ...
A proposed management plan for the U.S.s National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska (NPR-A) would allow new drilling on half of the 23 million-acre reserve while placing the rest of it off-limits to oil and gas exploration. The plan, unveiled by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, also would not preclude construction of a pipeline on the reserve. Salazar said the plan, which was praised by environmental groups but criticized by oil industry officials, would strike a balance between the nations energy needs and the protection of wildlife and native Alaskan subsistence culture. "This will provide a road map to help facilitate the transition from leasing and cautious exploration to production and smart development," he told reporters in Anchorage, Alaska. The reserve, located west of oil fields on Alaskas North Slope, is the home to a some of the largest caribou populations on the planet and millions of migratory birds from around the world. The region is also estimated to contain 549 million barrels of ...

Alaskas clear air may have dark cloud / Pollutants from oil production facilities are hard to see -- but crucial Yet the North Slope operations -- like oil production facilities everywhere -- taint the environment in a more substantial, but invisible, way. Estimates vary, but the North Slope oil fields probably produce more smog-forming nitrogen oxides than Washington, D.C., and more carbon dioxide than San Francisco. Air pollution on the North Slope, home to herds of caribou and vast flocks of migrating birds, riles some environmentalists but rarely gets the attention of people outside Alaska, even those caught up in the debate over expanded drilling in the Arctic. The difficulty with air pollution is its not tangible unless theres black smoke, said Mike Frank, senior staff attorney with the Trustees for Alaska environmental law firm. A spokesman for BP PLC, which runs Prudhoe Bay, said the company has complied with pollution limits that should eliminate health risks associated with air

In the summer of 1947, Ansel Adams and his 14-year-old son, Michael, undertook a six-week journey through Alaska that would have notable consequences for the history of conservation. Adams was already close to a household name for his masterful landscape photography, particularly the powerful shots of Yosemite Valley. A 1941 visit to Glacier National Park had sparked his interest in the north country. "Imaginatively inclined," Adams recalled in his autobiography, "I felt Alaska might be close to the wilderness perfection I continuously sought." On this relatively short trip, he would take one of his most iconic photographs and do much to encourage Americans of all stripes to visit Alaska and persuade them of the value of the National Park System.. From San Francisco he and Michael drove up U.S. Highway 101 to Seattle, where they boarded the SS Washington for Juneau by way of the Inland Passage, stuffing themselves on buffet food, just as had the pioneer preservationist John Muir decades earlier. ...

Compared with the non-Hispanic white (NHW) population, the urban American Indian and Alaskan Native (AIAN) community was more likely to have lower survival rates following invasive prostate and breast cancer, according to a new study by Emerson et al in Cancer Research.. "Its been reported that the AIAN community has a higher cancer burden than other racial/ethnic groups," said lead author Marc A. Emerson, MPH, PhD candidate, of the Department of Epidemiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who was an Intramural Research Training Award fellow in the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences at the National Cancer Institute while conducting this work. "However, accurate, population-based information on the cancer experience for this population residing in an urban setting is severely lacking.". Previous AIAN data regarding cancer incidence and mortality are linked with the Indian Health Service (IHS); however, access to IHS facilities for the majority of AIANs is ...

Infective stages of helminths of 5 species that occur as adults in marine mammals were found in burbot, Lota lota (L.) (Gadidae), from the lower Kuskokwim River (southwestern Alaska): Diphyllobothrium alascense Rausch et Williamson, 1958; Pyramicocephalus phocarum (Fabricius, 1780); Corynosoma strumosum (Rudolphi, 1801); Corynosoma semerme (Forsell, 1904); and Pseudoterranova decipiens (Krabbe, 1878). Some larval stages were obtained also from smelt, Osmerus mordax dentex Steindachner, an anadromous fish important as prey of burbot. Burbot, which are freshwater fish, could become paratenic hosts of those helminths by means of at least three interactions: by consuming marine fishes in brackish waters at river mouths, by feeding on marine fishes that enter lower reaches of rivers, or by preying on anadromous fishes as they migrate up rivers. Consumption of burbot by people may result in infection by helminths of marine origin; of those recorded, only P. decipiens may be significantly pathogenic. Attempts
