Residents' exposure to aboriginal health issues. Survey of family medicine programs in Canada. (1/80)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether Canadian family medicine residency programs currently have objectives, staff, and clinical experiences for adequately exposing residents to aboriginal health issues. DESIGN: A one-page questionnaire was developed to survey the details of teaching about and exposure to aboriginal health issues. SETTING: Family medicine programs in Canada. PARTICIPANTS: All Canadian family medicine program directors in the 18 programs (16 at universities and two satellite programs) were surveyed between October 1997 and March 1998. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Whether programs had teaching objectives for exposing residents to aboriginal health issues, whether they had resource people available, what elective and core experiences in aboriginal health were offered, and what types of experiences were available. RESULTS: Response rate was 100%. No programs had formal, written curriculum objectives for residency training in aboriginal health issues, although some were considering them. Some programs, however, had objectives for specific weekend or day sessions. No programs had a strategy for encouraging enrollment of residents of aboriginal origin. Eleven programs had at least one resource person with experience in aboriginal health issues, and 12 had access to community-based aboriginal groups. Core experiences were all weekend seminars or retreats. Elective experiences in aboriginal health were available in 16 programs, and 11 programs were active on reserves. CONCLUSIONS: Many Canadian family medicine programs give residents some exposure to aboriginal health issues, but most need more expertise and direction on these issues. Some programs have unique approaches to teaching aboriginal health care that could be shared. Formalized objectives derived in collaboration with other family medicine programs and aboriginal groups could substantially improve the quality of education in aboriginal health care in Canada.  (+info)

Thrombolysis in the air. Air-ambulance paramedics flying to remote communities treat patients before hospitalization. (2/80)

PROBLEM ADDRESSED: First Nations* communities in the North have a high prevalence of coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes and face an increasing incidence of myocardial infarction (MI). Many conditions delay timely administration of thrombolysis, including long times between when patients first experience symptoms and when they present to community nursing stations, delays in air transfers to treating hospitals, uncertainty about when planes are available, and poor flying conditions. OBJECTIVE OF PROGRAM: To develop a program for administration of thrombolysis on the way to hospital by air ambulance paramedics flying to remote communities to provide more rapid thrombolytic therapy to northern patients experiencing acute MIs. COMPONENTS OF PROGRAM: Critical care flight paramedics fly to northern communities from Sioux Lookout, Ont; assess patients; communicate with base hospital physicians; review an exclusion criteria checklist; and administer thrombolytics according to the Sioux Lookout District Health Centre/Base Hospital Policy and Procedure Manual. Patients are then flown to hospitals in Sioux Lookout; Winnipeg, Man; or Thunder Bay, Ont. CONCLUSION: This thrombolysis program is being pilot tested, and further evaluation and development is anticipated.  (+info)

Type 2 diabetes mellitus in Canada's first nations: status of an epidemic in progress. (3/80)

This review provides a status report on the epidemic of type 2 diabetes mellitus that is affecting many of Canada's First Nations. We focus on the published literature, especially reports published in the past 2 decades, and incorporate data from the Aboriginal Peoples Survey and the First Nations and Inuit Regional Health Survey. We look at the extent and magnitude of the problem, the causes and risk factors, primary prevention and screening, clinical care and education, and cultural concepts and traditional knowledge. The epidemic of type 2 diabetes is still on the upswing, with a trend toward earlier age at onset. Genetic-environmental interactions are the likely cause. Scattered intervention projects have been implemented and evaluated, and some show promise. The current health and social repercussions of the disease are considerable, and the long-term outlook remains guarded. A national Aboriginal diabetes strategy is urgently needed.  (+info)

Child hunger in Canada: results of the 1994 National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth. (4/80)

BACKGROUND: In Canada, hunger is believed to be rare. This study examined the prevalence of hunger among Canadian children and the characteristics of, and coping strategies used by, families with children experiencing hunger. METHODS: The data originated from the first wave of data collection for the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth, conducted in 1994, which included 13,439 randomly selected Canadian families with children aged 11 years or less. The respondents were asked about the child's experience of hunger and consequent use of coping strategies. Sociodemographic and other risk factors for families experiencing hunger, use of food assistance programs and other coping strategies were analyzed by means of multiple logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: Hunger was experienced by 1.2% (206) of the families in the survey, representing 57,000 Canadian families. Single-parent families, families relying on social assistance and off-reserve Aboriginal families were overrepresented among those experiencing hunger. Hunger coexisted with the mother's poor health and activity limitation and poor child health. Parents offset the needs of their children by depriving themselves of food. INTERPRETATION: Physicians may wish to use these demographic characteristics to identify and assist families with children potentially at risk for hunger.  (+info)

Breast cancer screening. First Nations communities in New Brunswick. (5/80)

OBJECTIVE: To determine use of breast cancer screening and barriers to screening among women in First Nations communities (FNCs). DESIGN: Structured, administered survey. SETTING: Five FNCs in New Brunswick. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred thirty-three (96%) of 138 eligible women between the ages of 50 and 69 years. INTERVENTIONS: After project objectives, methods, and expected outcomes were discussed with community health representatives, we administered a 32-item questionnaire on many aspects of breast cancer screening. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Rate of use of mammography and other breast cancer screening methods, and barriers to screening. RESULTS: Some 65% of participants had had mammography screening within the previous 2 years. Having mammography at recommended intervals and clinical breast examinations (CBEs) yearly were significantly associated with having had a physician recommend the procedures (P < .001). A family history of breast cancer increased the odds of having a mammogram 2.6-fold (P < .05, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.03 to 6.54). Rates of screening differed sharply by whether a family physician was physically practising in the community or not (P < .05, odds ratio 2.68, 95% CI 1.14 to 6.29). CONCLUSION: Women in FNCs in one health region in New Brunswick have mammography with the same frequency as off-reserve women. A family physician practising part time in the FNCs was instrumental in encouraging women to participate in breast cancer screening.  (+info)

Markers of access to and quality of primary care for aboriginal people in Ontario, Canada. (6/80)

OBJECTIVES: We evaluated primary care accessibility and quality for Ontario's aboriginal population. METHODS: We compared a defined aboriginal cohort with nonaboriginal populations with analogous geographic isolation and low socioeconomic status. We determined rates of hospitalization for the following indicators of adequacy of primary care: ambulatory care-sensitive (ACS) conditions and utilization of referral care-sensitive (RCS) procedures from administrative databases. RESULTS: ACS hospitalization rates, relative to the general population, were 2.54, 1.50, and 1.14 for the aboriginal population, the geographic control populations, and the socioeconomic control populations, respectively. The relative RCS procedure utilization rates were 0.64, 0.91, and 1.00, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The increased ACS hospitalization rate and reduced RCS procedure utilization rate suggest that northern Ontario's aboriginal residents have insufficient or ineffective primary care.  (+info)

Integrated environmental impact assessment: a Canadian example. (7/80)

The Canadian federal process for environmental impact assessment (EIA) integrates health, social, and environmental aspects into either a screening, comprehensive study, or a review by a public panel, depending on the expected severity of potential adverse environmental effects. In this example, a Public Review Panel considered a proposed diamond mining project in Canada's northern territories, where 50% of the population are Aboriginals. The Panel specifically instructed the project proposer to determine how to incorporate traditional knowledge into the gathering of baseline information, preparing impact prediction, and planning mitigation and monitoring. Traditional knowledge is defined as the knowledge, innovations and practices of indigenous and/or local communities developed from experience gained over the centuries and adapted to local culture and environment. The mining company was asked to consider in its EIA: health, demographics, social and cultural patterns; services and infrastructure; local, regional and territorial economy; land and resource use; employment, education and training; government; and other matters. Cooperative efforts between government, industry and the community led to a project that coordinated the concerns of all interested stakeholders and the needs of present and future generations, thereby meeting the goals of sustainable development. The mitigation measures that were implemented take into account: income and social status, social support networks, education, employment and working conditions, physical environments, personal health practices and coping skills, and health services.  (+info)

Use of traditional Mi'kmaq medicine among patients at a First Nations community health centre. (8/80)

INTRODUCTION: The provision of complete, effective, and culturally sensitive health care to First Nations communities requires a familiarity with and respect for patients' healing beliefs and practices. PURPOSE: This study addresses one aspect of cross-cultural care by attempting to understand the use of Mi'kmaq medicine among patients at a community health centre and their attitudes toward both Mi'kmaq and Western medicine. METHODS: A questionnaire was completed by 100 patients (14 men, 86 women) at the clinic. The majority (66%) of respondents had used Mi'kmaq medicine, and 92.4% of these respondents had not discussed this with their physician. Of those who had used Mi'kmaq medicine, 24.3% use it as first-line treatment when they are ill, and 31.8% believe that Mi'kmaq medicine is better overall than Western. Even among patients who have not used Mi'kmaq medicine, 5.9% believe that it is more effective than Western medicine in treating illness. CONCLUSION: These results have implications for the delivery of health care to First Nations patients, especially in terms of understanding patients' health care values and in meeting the need to provide effective cross-cultural care.  (+info)

Im sure the intentions of whoever wrote the press release were good . . . but . . . it is quite a stretch. Still, interesting that it made it into Google News. The research the author discusses has nothing to do with Crossfit. The press release does, however, attempt to associate a high-fat diet (promoted by some Crossfitters as healthy than other diets) with lower incidence of cardiovascular disease by comparing incidence of disease between residents of Switzerland and Australian aboriginals living in modern Australia. The claim was that a high-fat dining Swiss have less cardiovascular disease than the presumed low-fat dining Australian Aboriginals and that, therefore, high-fat diets are healthier than low-fat diets.. I have not looked up the statistics for the Swiss, but Australian Aboriginals have been suffering increasing rates of cardiovascular disease over at least the last 30 years.

This territory is covered by the "Treaties of Peace and Friendship" which Mikmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) people first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mikmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations. ...
These population-based health survey data suggest that chronic diseases and risk factors are not uniformly distributed across ethnic groups and geographic regions of northern Canada and that some negative shifts have occurred in their distribution in a relatively short period of time.. Some of the findings of this study are consistent with previous research comparing Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal populations in southern Canada or in other countries, but others are not. For example, smoking rates are reported elsewhere to be higher among Aboriginals compared with non-Aboriginals (8,12). A previous study that compared chronic disease and risk factors between northern and southern Canadian populations found that the Aboriginals had a higher prevalence of overweight and obesity, daily smoking, and physical inactivity than the non-Aboriginals (13). However, we found that these risk factors among northern Canadian populations varied substantially. In addition, with respect to overweight, recent ...

I would agree to loosing some of the oldest aboriginal sites to the rising of the sea after the last ice age. However I would add caution to this statement as it represents Aboriginals are coastal people which I have found to be not entirely acurate. My research has found Aboriginals to be seasonal nomads and prefer riverine enviroments due to fresh water and abundant food sources. What has been found in perth is that they spent the summer on the coast and the winter inland along rivers not only for food and water but protection from the elements. As Pre-History in Australia is a fairly new area of science it concerns me that these blanket approaches are taken as gospel so that if any new knowledge is brought forward it dismissed as not fitting into these preconceived parameters. I myself are experiencing these conditions with the ochre hand that I have found and it is not being welcomed so warmly in the scientific community as they say it doesnt fit into what is known about their culture ...

Just to be safe we usually just say look for some oil-free lotions, shampoos, and conditioners. But when youre in a sick body, your metabolism isnt working right. The challenge is getting enough protein without too much fat. The reason is, as oil of oregano does its job, it may also kill some of the friendly bacteria in your gut that you want to preserve. Youll be advised which carbohydrate is great or poor for you. Its everywhere, its a biocide, its going into superconductors, its going into RFID chips, but you know what?

As to the factors for figuring out anyone being a member of such a race, Deane claimed, It is actually needless, with the applications with the existing case, to evaluate the meaning to be specified into the phrase people of any race in s.51. Plainly, the text have a wide and non-technical that means, the phrase is, in my view, apposite to confer with all Australian Aboriginals collectively. Any doubt, which could in any other case exist in regard, is taken off by reference on the wording of par. The phrase can be apposite to confer with any identifiable racial sub-group among the Australian Aboriginals, when Deanes three-portion definition reaches past the Organic criterion to people self-identification, it has been criticised as continuing to simply accept the Organic criterion as Principal. It has been tricky to utilize, the two in Each and every of its components and as into the relations among the areas, biological descent has long been a drop-back criterion.

Results Ninety four patients were evaluated; their median (IQR) age was 42.0 (36.6-50.2) years, 88 (93.6%) were female; almost all patients were mestizo (mixed Caucasian and Amerindian ancestry). Disease duration was 5.6 (2.5-11.4) years. The SLEDAI was 4.0 (2.0-8.0), the SDI 0.0 (0.0-1.0) and the CCI 1.0 (1.0-1.0). The current dose of prednisone was 5.0 (5.0-10.0) mg/d and the total time of exposure to prednisone was 5.0 (2.0-12.5) years; 68 (72.3%) and 14 (14.9%) were current and former users of antimalarials. Sixty five (69.1%) were current or former users of immunosuppressive drugs. Percentage of CD4+CD28null T-cells was 15.5 (8.7-27.1). In the univariable analysis, the percentage of CD4+CD28null T-cells was positively associated with a higher SDI (Rho=0.29, p,0.001) and remained associated in the multivariable analysis (rate ratio: 1.03, 95% CI: 1.01 to 1.04, p,0.001).. ...

From flowers to fruit and foliage. There were a number of attractive ferns on the bench, both in the foliage and fern classes. Cheilanthes sinuata (Rod & Shirley Johnson) attracted my attention as, while various of this genus appear regularly on the show benches, this was one that I had not previously seen. An attractive American native, whose common name is Wavy Cloak Fern, is reaches 15-45 cm tall, and grows in crevices and on rocky slopes, often on limestone, as at Big Bend National Park, where at 3,500m it can be seen in quantity. Extremely drought tolerant, and hardy, it needs perfect drainage: lingering moisture is fatal and as such it is especially at risk in the winter. This specimen had been obtained at the Malvern Show from Shady Plants, ex Ireland. It is grown in equal parts of John Innes no. 3, leaf-mould and chippings, and kept in a glass-sided frame in full sun. The plunge is kept well watered and additional water is given round the edge of the pot in hot weather.. ...

Conditions of Australian aboriginals are worsening, a new report says. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd says the findings are devastating.
This was a very lengthy, dense post with lots of fun technical language. Im glad I put it together so it can live permanently in the Internet for future generations to see. I wonder what new genetic combinations those generations will be made up of. And I hope those of you who read it have found my account interesting or useful in some way. I definitely recommend that everyone get DNA tested if theyre able to. Genetic ancestry results show us that we are all one. Race is surely very real on a day to day basis, as it affects our daily interactions and our core identifies. But at the genetic level race is but a social construct, with no basis in biology, as we are all mixed. Even when someone is 99% Asian, lets say, if you look within that you will find that they may be 70% Japanese, 10% Korean, 5% Chinese, etc. Its a beautiful thing to live at a time where this knowledge and how to tap into it exists.

In a new editorial published in PLOS NTDs, Sabin Vaccine Institute president Dr. Peter Hotez urges the global community to recognize how neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) greatly impact Aboriginal groups worldwide and include these populations in NTD control and elimination efforts.. "Aboriginal populations are also disproportionately affected by infectious diseases, especially infections of the skin (e.g., impetigo and tungiasis), eye (e.g., trachoma), and ear (e.g., acute and chronic otitis), dental caries, respiratory and urinary tract infections, and diarrheal diseases. Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are especially common among Aboriginal populations. Shown in Table 1 are five representative groups of Aboriginal peoples and their major NTDs. The most common NTDs are intestinal helminth and protozoan infections zoonotic parasitic infections neglected bacterial infections such as trachoma, leprosy, and yaws and a number of important vector-borne illnesses, including malaria and dengue. ...
Aboriginal people living in industrialized countries experience disproportionately high rates of type 2 diabetes mellitus (diabetes), diabetes complications, and associated risk factors when compared to their non-Aboriginal counterparts [1-4]. In Canada, Aboriginal peoples are comprised of three distinct Indigenous groups, namely First Nations, Inuit and Métis. Rates of diabetes are 2.5 to 4 times higher among First Nations people than the general population, with higher rates among women than men and a younger age at diagnosis [5]. In addition, some First Nations people have higher rates of documented smoking, obesity, hypertension and dyslipidemia and have increasing rates of serious diabetes-related complications [6-8]. This epidemiological trend requires urgent clinical action: primary prevention of diabetes is necessary to protect future generations, but initiatives to improve the quality of care provided to First Nations people already living with diabetes are urgently needed to reduce ...
Borrows describes how, for many aboriginals, "the Earth is the individual," the ultimate source of meaning and deserving not only of protection, but as a living guide to political and social action (pp.165-167). Admitting it can be difficult to determine what the earth intends (pipe ceremonies are largely for giving thanks; he does not explain how the earths intentions enter into the deliberations of aboriginals), Borrows suggests it provides a community for the living, the unborn, and the dead. One wonders whether Edmund Burke, for whom community is also constituted by the living, dead, and unborn, might find agreement with aboriginals on this point. Borrows contrasts the aboriginal vision, sometimes with the general Christian paradigm of religious freedom, and other times the post-Reformation understanding (p.168). The distinction is important. For example, the medieval prohibition of usury was based on the fact that usury, or interest, was not generative. The earth produced beings that grew ...

Note however the presence of the derived allele in Papuans and Aboriginals, but not Melanesians. In the phylogenetic network the Aboriginals are the outgroup, and yet on this character the Melanesians are. This is a locus which will no doubt be explored in the future, because the patterns here will be fascinating to tease apart, and, of possible medical relevance.. Overall this paper has confirmed much of what we know, or at least solidified our background assumptions. The contemporary peoples of Melanesia, New Guinea and Australia have a common ancestral heritage. Coalescence times back to the last common ancestor between these populations and non-Oceanian groups suggest that their residence in their current locations is antique, and possibly back to the first settlement. One should be duly cautious about extrapolating from contemporary patterns to variation to the past, but I think on this scale were on more solid ground. Parts of southern Australia and Tasmania may have an equitable climate ...
... first arrived in Australia in 50,00 BC. They came in small groups from Southeast Asia. They are dark-skinned people of medium height with slender limbs. In 1780 the aboriginal population was thought to be 300,000 , with about 500 different tribes. This changed very rapidly in 1788, when the first settles began to arrive. Conflict began almost immediately. The white settlers brought diseases such as smallpox and the common cold. Within 2 years smallpox had killed almost half the population around Sydney. As the settlers moved inland, the aboriginals began to lose their hunting grounds, their watering holes, in fact their source of life ...

Camille, a lot like Rush, over the last 20 years made for herself a loyal readership by calling things like she sees them, like that honest baseball umpire.

Obama has been called out on strikes by both of these analysts. Rush says to his audience, "I told you so". But Camille says to her audience, "It must be a failure by his assistants". The last 20 years of these two trusted analysts building up an audience is at stake...so they believe what they say that they see each from his/her own frame of reference.

Nathan Doggett was born in the small town of Bridgewater, on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. He graduated from Acadia University with a bachelor of science in biology with University Scholar status and a bachelor of kinesiology with honours. While at Acadia, Nathan completed research examining the association between both physical activity and sedentary behaviour, and asthma within the Aboriginal Canadian population, as well as their effects on healthcare utilization. Throughout his time at Acadia, Nathan was involved in a number of clubs and volunteer programs. As an avid rugby player, he was a member of the Acadia Rugby Football Club (ARFC) for four seasons. He was also part of the inaugural Global Brigades chapter at Acadia, in which funds and medical supplies were raised in order to travel to Honduras and set up a number of mobile medical and dental clinics in remote villages and towns. Nathan went on to help plan the following years trip as an executive member and continues to be involved ...
We carried out molecular analysis of 80 chromosomes from 40 unrelated Mexican patients with a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis. The study was performed in two PCR steps: a preliminary one to identify mutation AF508, the most frequent cause of cystic fibrosis worldwide, and the second a reverse dot-blot with allele-specific oligonucleotide probes to detect 15 additional common mutations in the Caucasian population. A frequency of 45% for AF508 was found, making it the most common in our sample of Mexican patients. Another five mutations (G542X, 3849 + 10 kb C{r_arrow}T, N1303K, S549N, and 621 + 1 G{r_arrow}T) were detected, and these accounted for 11.25%. The remaining mutations (43.75%) were undetectable with the methodology used. 20 refs., 2 tabs. ...

Whether genetic factors such as NRAMP 1 polymorphisms play a role in the prevalence of tuberculosis in Taiwanese aboriginals should be clarified ...
Price et al. cleverly circumvent this by looking in the recently admixed African American population. African Americans have on average 20% European ancestry and 80% African ancestry. Because this admixture is recent, there are only a few generations of recombination and so the genome of an African American can be thought of as a mosaic made up of big blocks of alternating African and European ancestry. So at any location in the genome African Americans differ in whether they have locally inherited 0, 1 or 2 chromosomes from African ancestors. African Americans also vary in their genome-wide admixture proportion. Price et al. use this fact, to look at trans effects ancestry, by looking at the correlation between genome-wide ancestry proportion and the expression level of genes. They contrast this to the effect of cis ancestry (i.e. 0,1, or 2 African alleles at a site), to obtain an estimate of the variance explained by cis and trans effects. Somewhat surprisingly (at least if you read mostly ...

Mean maternal and paternal ages during gestation in these cases of unusual CL/P was of 26 years for both; we excluded the clinical information from 1 patient who had been adopted, thus making it impossible to collect information. There was no past of consanguinity between the couples, maternal ingestions of alcohol and smoking, use of medication during pregnancy, miscarriage and/or stillbirth past and maternal diseases among the five cases of unusual CL/P we analyzed (Table 1). Nonetheless, one case (case 3) was positive for the family history of CL/P. In such case, a paternal uncle had complete bilateral CL/P. All the five patients, as well as family members, were seen at the health care facility and are currently under multiprofessional clinical follow up. DISCUSSION. Numerous epidemiological studies have shown that CL/P has a unique distribution and the incidence of these anomalies varies among the different populations assessed19-23. Thus, the Asian population, ancestors of American natives ...

The white woman of Gippsland, or the captive woman of Gippsland, was supposedly a European woman rumoured to have been held against her will by Aboriginal Kurnai people in the Gippsland region of Australia in the 1840s. Her supposed plight excited searches and much speculation at the time, though nothing to put her existence beyond the level of rumour was ever found. Accounts of the woman vary. In a popular account she was one of two women travelling on the ship Britannia, which wrecked on Ninety Mile Beach in 1841. There were two women aboard, the wife of the Captain and a woman sailing to Sydney to join her fiancé, Mr Frazer. Another account says the woman was a mother who sought protection with local Aboriginals with her baby girl after leaving her callous and brutal husband. One possible source of the rumour was that a group of white pioneers had come upon an Aboriginal camp near Port Albert which had been hurriedly vacated. They found some female attire and a towel (being used to block the ...
Introduction. Racism in Australia Cain said to his brother Abel, Let us go out to the field. And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him. The Lord said to Cain, Where is your brother Abel? He said, I do not know; am I my brothers keeper? and the Lord said, what have you done? Listen; your brothers blood is crying out to me from the ground! And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brothers blood from your hand... Then Cain went away from the presence of the Lord. (Genesis 4:8-11, 16 NRSV) Its a story about conflict - between two different cultures of ways of relating to the earth.

Fondly dedicated to the memory of craniometry founder Samuel Morton, Nott and Gliddons book promoted polygenism - the idea that human races had been created separately, were unrelated to each other and were emphatically unequal. Nott and Gliddon devoted a considerable chunk of their 700+-page book to arguing that African slaves deserved their lowly position. Naturally the book was a big hit in the antebellum South. Opposed to both shared ancestry of all humans and (presumably) the Emancipation Proclamation, Nott and Gliddon wrote, "To one living in, or conversant with, the Slave-States of North America, it need not be told, that the Negroes, in ten generations, have not made the slightest physical approach either towards our aboriginal population, or to any other race. As a mnemonic, we here subjoin, sketched by a friend, the likenesses of two Negroes (Figs. 179, 180) who ply their avocations every day in the streets of Mobile where anybody could in a single morning collect a hundred other ...

That is a very strong statement. As we know, in Canada the crime rate is going down. We have the lowest crime rate since 1973, in almost 40 years. At the same time, we have an increase in the prison population, most of which Mr. Sapers said is accounted for by our more marginalized populations, including aboriginal peoples, visible minorities, those with addictions and substance abuse problems, and the mentally ill. That is a very strong indictment of the failure of the Canadian system when it comes to aboriginal people.. We have astonishing statistics on the number of aboriginal people who inhabit our prison system. Canada has a population of aboriginal people somewhere around 3.75% or 4%, yet 21% of our prison population is made up of aboriginal people. If we look at the federally incarcerated population alone, 2.8% of the Canadian population accounts for 18% of the federally incarcerated population. Therefore, we have six times as many aboriginals serving federal time, when compared to the ...

Recent genetic studies concluded in 2005 have shown that a significant portion of the population has varying degrees of Amerindian and to a lesser extent African ancestry. The first study on the matter in Argentina was conducted in 1985. A scientific team from the University of Buenos Aires School of Medicine analyzed the blood types of 73,875 donors from the Blood Bank of the Policlínico Ferroviario Central, with the purpose of finding European and Amerindian genetic components. The samples were organized following a map of the country, and the study concluded that "the percentages found in native population were: European component, 81.47%-81.77%, and Amerindian component 18.23%-18.57%.". Another study of the Amerindian ancestry of Argentines was headed by Argentine geneticist Daniel Corach of the University of Buenos Aires. The results of this study in which DNA from 320 individuals in which 9 Argentine provinces were examined showed that 56% of these individuals had at least one recent ...
At least twenty percent of Colombians identify as having African ancestry, yielding the second largest population of Afro-descendants in Latin America. To date, there have been relatively few studies focused on the genetic ancestry of Afro-Latino populations. We report a comparative analysis of the genetic ancestry of Chocó, a state located on Colombias Pacific coast with a population that is ,80% Afro-Colombian. We compared genome-wide patterns of genetic ancestry and admixture for Chocó to six other admixed American populations, with an emphasis on a Mestizo population from the nearby Colombian city of Medellín. One hundred sample donors from Chocó were genotyped across 610,545 genomic sites and compared to 94 publicly available whole genome sequences from Medellín. At the continental level, Chocó shows mostly African genetic ancestry (76%) with a nearly even split between European (13%) and Native American (11%) fractions, whereas Medellín has primarily European ancestry (75%), ...
Background: There is growing literature in the United States proposing that the distribution of some prognostic features for cancer may vary by ethnic/racial status. Among Canadian cancer registries, data on prognostic features, as well as treatment, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, are not routinely collected. To determine these characteristics, data from medical charts of the cancer patient is abstracted. Previous work in Ontario, Canada has demonstrated that survival after a breast cancer diagnosis is poorer among First Nations women compared to other Ontario women. The purpose of this study is to identify the distribution of prognostic features and treatment received among First Nations and non-First Nations women diagnosed with breast cancer from 1995 to 2004 in Ontario.. Study Design: This study employed a case-case design using the cohort of First Nations people in Ontario to identify 297 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer between 1995 and 2004. Concurrently, a random sample of ...
Thank you, Mr. Chair.. Good morning, and thank you for the opportunity to speak to you today.. On behalf of the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples, l am pleased to appear before you today to discuss our perspectives on the draft Bill C-44 under study by the members of this committee. There are three areas that the congress wishes to address today relative to the implications of the draft Bill C-44. These include our comment on the Indian Act as an impediment to effective human rights protection in first nations communities; our views around band councils and on governance in general in first nations communities; and the need for education and outreach to increase awareness, allay concern, and engender understanding of the value of the provisions of the Canadian Human Rights Act.. Since 1982, Canadas Constitution and its Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which is the highest law of the land, has specifically recognized three groups of aboriginal peoples: Indians, Inuit, and Métis.

The flowers of P. mucronata are dioecious, meaning that male and female flowers are borne on different plants. This is important to know if you expect to have berries on your plants.. One male plant should be sufficient for a group of about 8 female plants. A low growing male cultivar called Thymifolia is a good choice as a pollinator especially where a neater growth habit is favoured. There is a hermaphrodite plant which produces bright carmine-red berries called Bells Seedling which is an Irish cultivar. One solitary plant can produce berries without the need for the company of a pollinator.. The edibility of Gaultheria mucronata berries is a subject clouded in confusion, with some texts stating that all members of the genus have poisonous berries. I have eaten them, enjoyed them, and survived!. It is known that South American natives have valued the berries for their taste and health benefits. The texture of the flesh is somewhat watery and the skin dryish, but it is not unpleasant at ...

Lera Boroditsky of Stanford University, for example, points to the Kuuk Thaayorre, aboriginals of northern Australia who have no words for "left" or "right", using instead absolute directions such as "north" and "south-east" (as in "You have an ant on your south-west leg"). Ms Boroditsky says that any Kuuk Thaayorre child knows which way is south-east at any given time, whereas a roomful of Stanford professors, if asked to point south-east quickly, do little better than chance. The standard Kuuk Thayoorre greeting is "where are you going?", with an answer being something like "north-north-east, in the middle distance." Not knowing which direction is which, Ms Boroditsky notes, a Westerner could not get past "hello". Universalists retort that such neo-Whorfians are finding trivial surface features of language: the claim that language truly constricts thinking is still not proven ...
Two more northern First Nations are stepping up to oppose the Premiers commitment of an All-Weather Road into the Ring Of Fire. The Chief of Webequie First Nation says the only agreement in place is for a study to connect his community and Nibinamik First Nations to the highway and not the Ring of Fire.. However, Cornelius Wabasse is optimistic that the Matawa First Nations communities can work together on a plan going forward. Wabasse says communities arent opposed to development, but need to see that the proper steps are taken before any major work is done. ...

The Cowessess First Nation is located along the beautiful QuAppelle Valley with Crooked Lake and the QuAppelle River. Cowessess First Nation is located 15 kilometers north of Broadview, Saskatchewan.
Having spent many years in close association with First Nations people, through marriage into a west coast community, I came across this practice of smudging now and again. I held myself back from participation in this ritual on the occasions I encountered it because I was uneasy about the spiritual aspects of this cultural cleansing…

The University of Toronto will help the Canadian Institutes of Health Research work towards reducing tooth decay among First Nations children thanks to $1.2 million in funding.. The research will examine a new approach to dental care that employs four concurrent therapies to people living within First Nations communities. Its goal is to reduce the marked early childhood caries disparities that exist between First Nations and non-First Nations children in Canada.. The new therapy will commence this spring in several communities across Ontario and Manitoba. Canadian results are to be compared with results accumulated by researchers working in Australia and New Zealand.. Four other Canadian Universities will join the University of Toronto for this investigation including the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (Laurentian University), the University of Manitoba, the University College of the North, and the University of Waterloo. The five-year study is called "Reducing disease burden and health ...

The Aboriginals are the native people of Australia, an island continent between the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean. In the 1970s, Aboriginal tribal leaders decided to promote the permanent recordings of their ceremonial stories in painting to prevent the complete loss of their culture. Using traditional paints that were used for skin and tree bark, Aboriginal artists painted on Masonite boards and later, on canvas. Australian museums began exhibiting the work in the 1980s that represent the mythology or "dreaming" of these native people. By following the traditions of the Aboriginals, you can make your own Aboriginal paint.. ...
This study examined the association between self-reported diabetes, fish consumption and serum levels of organochlorines in a First Nation community. One quarter of the 101 participants reported diabetes. Serum PCBs, but not p,p-DDE, were positively correlated to consumption frequency of total fish, walleye and pike, but not trout. Reported diabetes was positively associated to p,p-DDE and some PCB congeners. Odds Ratios (OR) for reported diabetes for those in the upper 75th percentile for serum p,p-DDE compared to the others were 3.5 (95% CI 1-13.8) and 6.1 (95% CI 1.4-27.3) (weight wet and lipid-standardized values, respectively) and for total sum of PCBs: 4.91 (95% CI 1.4-19.0) and 5.51 (95% CI 1.3-24.1). For participants who were in the upper 50th percentile for trout and white fish intake, reported diabetes was respectively 6 and 4 times lower compared to the others. These findings support the hypothesis that environmental exposure to elevated p,p-DDE and PCBs is associated with increased risk
This study uses data from the 2012 Aboriginal Peoples Survey (APS) to examine the prevalence of early motherhood (i.e., having become a mother before the age of 20) among First Nations women living off reserve, Métis women and Inuit women aged 20 to 44. Data from the 2011 General Social Survey (GSS) are used for non-Aboriginal women. The study also examines whether early motherhood is associated with different outcomes in terms of education and employment.
Around the globe, diabetes incidence and prevalence rates are several times higher among Indigenous peoples compared to the general population (1). In Canada, Aboriginal peoples are a heterogeneous population comprised of individuals of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis heritage living in a range of environments from large cities to small, isolated communities. National survey data have consistently shown that the national age-adjusted prevalence of diabetes is 3 to 5 times higher in First Nations than in the general population (2-5) and population screening has shown rates as high as 26% in individual communities (6). As in most populations where incidence and prevalence rates are higher, age of diagnosis is younger in First Nations peoples (7,8). These rates are similar in other countries where Indigenous populations have been subject to colonization (1). In a recent profile of health status, Métis, aged 19 years and older, in Manitoba, were found to have an age and sex adjusted diabetes rate ...

Scientists now think there were seven gaps in the occupation story - times when there was probably no human settlement of any kind on these shores. Britain and the British people of today are essentially new arrivals - products only of the last influx 12,000 years.. Australian aboriginals have been in Australia longer, continuously than the British people have been in Britain. There were probably people in the Americas before 12,000 years ago, Professor Stringer explained.. Dr Danielle Schreve from Royal Holloway, University of London, has been filling out part of the story at a quarry at Lynford, near Norwich.. She and colleagues have found thousands of items that betray a site occupied some 60,000 years ago by Neanderthals.. The discoveries include the remains of mammoths, rhino and other large animals; and they hint at the sophistication these people would have had to employ to bring down such prey.. The oldest evidence of occupation comes from Pakefield, Suffolk. It seemed likely, she ...

Individual genetic admixture estimates, determined both across the genome and at specific genomic regions, have been proposed for use in identifying specific genomic regions harboring loci influencing phenotypes in regional admixture mapping (RAM). Estimates of individual ancestry can be used in structured association tests (SAT) to reduce confounding induced by various forms of population substructure. Although presented as two distinct approaches, we provide a conceptual framework in which both RAM and SAT are special cases of a more general linear model. We clarify which variables are sufficient to condition upon in order to prevent spurious associations and also provide a simple closed form
The conceptual model for the curriculum is based on the goals of the College of Nursing, the understand of nursing as a discipline and a profession, and the understanding of educational theory. The model is learner centred with recognition of nursing practice areas and environments, and acknowledges the principles that will drive the curriculum. It sets the stage for our teaching process and is broad enough to encourage many perspectives that will evolve during the life of the curriculum.. The conceptual model for the curriculum is congruent with the concepts of the medicine wheel, a well known model of health among Aboriginal peoples. The province has a significant number of Aboriginal people and the proportion of this population is increasing. According to the 2011 census, there are more than 157,740 Aboriginal people in Saskatchewan (15.6% of the population) and this number is expected to more than double by 2050, when it is predicted that one-third of the province will be Aboriginal.

Our review highlights that studies examining the prevalence of anti-HCV were significantly biased towards studies that included people at high risk of HCV infection. The highest prevalence estimates of anti-HCV were among Aboriginal people who inject drugs. As a result this study represents the prevalence of anti-HCV among Aboriginal people with a high risk of anti-HCV infection instead of the overall anti-HCV prevalence among the general Aboriginal population.. To our knowledge, this is the first systematic review and meta-analysis examining the prevalence of anti-HCV among Aboriginal people in Australia. A number of limitations should be considered when interpreting our results. Firstly, the majority of the studies were among Aboriginal people in prison or Aboriginal people who inject drugs. This significantly increases the risk of our study over-estimating the pooled anti-HCV prevalence among Aboriginal people. Also, among people in prison there is a higher risk of HCV exposure through unsafe ...

  • In essence if you start off with a small number of a particular gene in a larger gene pool (such as the gene for blood group B in the gene pool for ABO blood type) and nothing other than random mating occurred, at the end of a period of time, you would still have a small number of B genes in the ABO gene pool. (dadamo.com)
  • The answer lies not in the ancient nature of the mutations that produced the A and B genes, but rather in the discreet interactions that occurred between early man and his environment that were under the influence of his ABO blood group. (dadamo.com)

  • If Lewontin wants to argue that Japanese, West-African, and Amerindian "ancestry" is informative about genetic differences (with varying levels of resolution) then there isn't much of substance to argue about, though we can quibble about whether we want a trendy euphemism to describe this differentiation that exists below the species level. (gnxp.com)
  • Mitochondrial DNA analyses were the first to document that the ancestry of most Native Americans derives from a population that experienced a profound founder event , with a relatively small number of individuals giving rise to a large number of descendants to day . (yumpu.com)
  • There is the historically distant Beringian founder bottleneck, but there is also the founder effects associated with rapid population growth during the pre-Columbian adoption of agriculture (Olmec/Mayan/Aztec in Central America, Inca in South America). (blogspot.com)
  • It is no surprise, then, that many of the distinctions between the blood groups involve basic functions of our digestive and immune systems.Evolution is usually considered in the context of millions of years, which is the time frame needed to explain the many differences between animals or other species. (dadamo.com)
  • We also found SNPs with excess African or European ancestry that are associated with ancestry-specific gene expression patterns and play crucial roles in the immune system and infectious disease responses. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Oceanians and Native Americans, for example, who are descended from relatively few founders because of the bottlenecks associated with crossing the Beringian/maritime voyages have an excess of short runs of homozygosity, but Native Americans also have long ones, suggestive of recent consanguinity.
