Behaviours and expectations in relation to sexual intercourse among 18-20 year old Asians and non-Asians. (1/114)

OBJECTIVES: To begin to map the reported behaviours and attitudes of young Britons of south Asian origin that may have implications for sexual health. "South Asian" refers to people able to trace their ancestry from the Indian subcontinent (that is, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh), henceforth referred to as "Asian". DESIGN: A cross sectional study of sexual behaviour using self report measures in a self complete section of a social survey administered by trained interviewers in 1996. SETTING: Greater Glasgow, Scotland. SUBJECTS: Sample (n = 824) originally recruited aged 14-15 in 1992 in secondary schools in Greater Glasgow and subsequently traced through general practitioner registration for 1996 survey. 492 Asians and non-Asians aged 18-20 years old eventually interviewed in their own homes. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Self reported experience of sexual intercourse, age at first intercourse, and contraceptive practice over year before interview. METHODS: Measures of sexual behaviour and attitudes were elicited through a self complete questionnaire filled out in the presence of, and returned to, a trained social interviewer. RESULTS: Asians, and particularly Asian women, were far less likely to report having had heterosexual intercourse. Those Asian women who had had intercourse were likely to do so for the first time at an older age, and with an older partner, than the non-Asian women. Asian women were less likely to report using the pill than non-Asian women, irrespective of their marital status, and Asian men were less likely than non-Asian men to report using condoms. Asian sexual abstinence was reported to be for religious reasons, which were not important for non-Asians. In contrast with non-Asians, Asians saw themselves as likely to be married with children within the next 5 years. Asian men considered the ideal age to marry for men and women to be younger than the non-Asian men's average estimate. Asian and non-Asian women suggested a similar ideal age for men to marry, but Asian women considered a younger age appropriate for women than did non-Asian women. CONCLUSIONS: The higher level of sexual abstinence among Asians, and particularly women, has implications for the delivery of sexual health services to the minority who are sexually active before marriage. The underreporting of condom use by Asian men compared with their non-Asian counterparts, suggests a failure of the existing sexual health education and health services to reach minority ethnic young men which may be remedied by collaborative work with institutions currently used by the Asian community.  (+info)

Do Indo-Asians have smaller coronary arteries? (2/114)

There is a widespread belief that coronary arteries are smaller in Indo-Asians. The aim of the present study was to compare the size of atheroma-free proximal and distal epicardial coronary arteries of Indo-Asians and Caucasians. We analysed normal coronary angiograms from 77 Caucasians and 39 Indo-Asians. The two groups were comparable for dominance of the coronary arteries. Indo-Asian patients had generally smaller coronary arteries, with a statistically significant difference in the mean diameters of the left main coronary artery, proximal, mid and left anterior descending, and proximal and distal right coronary artery segments. There was a non-significant trend towards smaller coronary artery segment diameters for the distal left anterior descending, proximal and distal circumflex, and obtuse marginal artery segments. However, after correction for body surface area, none of these differences in size were statistically significant. Thus, the smaller coronary arteries in Indo-Asian patients were explained by body size alone and were not due to ethnic origin per se. This finding nevertheless has important therapeutic implications, since smaller coronary arteries may give rise to technical difficulties during bypass graft and intervention procedures such as percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, stents and atherectomy. On smaller arteries, atheroma may also give an impression of more severe disease than on larger diameter arteries.  (+info)

Progress toward poliomyelitis eradication--South-East Asia Region, 1998-1999. (3/114)

In 1988, the World Health Assembly resolved to eradicate poliomyelitis by the end of 2000 (1). To achieve this goal, the 10 member countries of the World Health Organization (WHO) South-East Asia Region (SEAR) began implementing polio eradication strategies in 1994. In 1999, most polio cases worldwide were reported in SEAR (i.e., 48% of reported polio cases and 62% of cases with wild poliovirus isolation) (2,3). This report summarizes progress in achieving high routine and supplemental vaccination coverage, the surveillance of cases of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), and the impact of these activities on polio eradication in the region during 1998-1999.  (+info)

Y-chromosome lineages trace diffusion of people and languages in southwestern Asia. (4/114)

The origins and dispersal of farming and pastoral nomadism in southwestern Asia are complex, and there is controversy about whether they were associated with cultural transmission or demic diffusion. In addition, the spread of these technological innovations has been associated with the dispersal of Dravidian and Indo-Iranian languages in southwestern Asia. Here we present genetic evidence for the occurrence of two major population movements, supporting a model of demic diffusion of early farmers from southwestern Iran-and of pastoral nomads from western and central Asia-into India, associated with Dravidian and Indo-European-language dispersals, respectively.  (+info)

A signal, from human mtDNA, of postglacial recolonization in Europe. (5/114)

Mitochondrial HVS-I sequences from 10,365 subjects belonging to 56 populations/geographical regions of western Eurasia and northern Africa were first surveyed for the presence of the T-->C transition at nucleotide position 16298, a mutation which has previously been shown to characterize haplogroup V mtDNAs. All mtDNAs with this mutation were then screened for a number of diagnostic RFLP sites, revealing two major subsets of mtDNAs. One is haplogroup V proper, and the other has been termed "pre*V," since it predates V phylogenetically. The rather uncommon pre*V tends to be scattered throughout Europe (and northwestern Africa), whereas V attains two peaks of frequency: one situated in southwestern Europe and one in the Saami of northern Scandinavia. Geographical distributions and ages support the scenario that pre*V originated in Europe before the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), whereas the more recently derived haplogroup V arose in a southwestern European refugium soon after the LGM. The arrival of V in eastern/central Europe, however, occurred much later, possibly with (post-)Neolithic contacts. The distribution of haplogroup V mtDNAs in modern European populations would thus, at least in part, reflect the pattern of postglacial human recolonization from that refugium, affecting even the Saami. Overall, the present study shows that the dissection of mtDNA variation into small and well-defined evolutionary units is an essential step in the identification of spatial frequency patterns. Mass screening of a few markers identified using complete mtDNA sequences promises to be an efficient strategy for inferring features of human prehistory.  (+info)

Development of guidelines to facilitate improved support of South Asian carers by primary health care teams. (6/114)

BACKGROUND: Evidence based guidelines are regarded as an appropriate basis for providing effective health care, but few guidelines incorporate the views of users such as carers. AIM: To develop guidelines to assist primary health care teams (PHCTs) in their work with carers within South Asian communities. METHODS: The guidelines were drawn up by a development group consisting of members of teams in areas with South Asian communities (Leicester and Bradford). The teams were invited to make their recommendations based on a systematic review of literature on minority ethnic carers and the findings of a study of the needs and experiences of local South Asian carers. A grading system was devised to enable the teams and a group of expert peer reviewers to assess the quality of evidence in support of each recommendation. RESULTS: The teams agreed seven recommendations, graded according to available evidence and strength of opinion. External peer review supported the PHCTs' interpretation of evidence and their recommendations. The recommendations included consideration of communication and information for carers, coordination of care within teams, and recognition by team members of the roles of carers and their cultural and religious beliefs. CONCLUSION: There are particular steps that PHCTs can take to improve their support of South Asian carers. It is possible to develop guidelines that take users' views into account and incorporate evidence from qualitative studies.  (+info)

Perceptions of vocational trainees on gender and racial disadvantage within the Thames vocational training programme. (7/114)

BACKGROUND: A recent report has suggested that vocational trainees within London experienced racial or gender disadvantage during their selection. This exploratory study did not investigate the extent or the nature of this disadvantage. AIM: To undertake a survey using a pre-tested questionnaire with dental vocational trainees on the Thames Scheme. The questionnaire explored perceived and experienced aspects of gender and racial disadvantage during their vocational training programme. RESULTS: 127 trainees completed the questionnaire (response rate 92%). Minority ethnic respondents were more than twice as likely to feel their selection was influenced by gender (odds ratio [OR] 2.25, 95% Confidence Interval [CI] 1.02, 5.10) and more than three times likely to feel selection was influenced by their race when compared with their white colleagues (OR 3.05, 95%; CI 1.01,11.45). The majority of trainees did not perceive any disadvantage whilst on the vocational training course. For example, only five respondents (4%) felt that minority ethnic individuals were treated less favourably during the vocational training course. CONCLUSION: In conclusion, this preliminary study has attempted to explore inter-ethnic differences within the profession on perceived racial disadvantage and possible strategies for change. It is clear that the perception of disadvantage is greater than the reality within the experience of most trainees.  (+info)

DNA sequence variability of IGHG3 alleles associated to the main G3m haplotypes in human populations. (8/114)

The present study investigates the molecular basis of the G3m polymorphism expressed by the heavy constant domains of human immunoglobulins gamma 3 chains. By using a new protocol allowing the specific cloning of IGHG3 genes, a total of 51 full-length IGHG3 genomic sequences (about 2 kb) isolated from African, Siberian, West Asian and European population samples were sequenced. IGHG3 sequences were assigned precise G3m haplotypes on the basis of specific associations between G3m allotypes and IGHG3 RFLPs. Specific DNA substitutions involved in the expression of G3m(5), G3m(6), G3m(15), G3m(16), G3m(21), G3m(24) and G3m(28) allotypes were then deduced, elucidating almost completely the determination of the G3m polymorphism at the DNA level. The molecular evolution of G3m haplotypes was investigated by a maximum likelihood phylogeny of IGHG3 sequences. Sequence clusters are shown to be G3m haplotype-specific, corroborating the Gm molecular model deduced from serology, and showing that populations differentiation is much more recent than G3m haplotypes differentiation. The widely distributed G3m(5,10,11,13,14) haplotype is likely to be ancestral to the other G3m haplotypes presently found at high frequencies in different continental areas.  (+info)

Abstract We report the clinical findings, epidemiology, and risk factors for moderate-to-severe diarrhea (MSD) associated with Aeromonas species in children 0-59 months of age, from the Global Enteric Multicenter Study, conducted at three sites in south Asia and four sites in sub-Saharan Africa. Children with MSD were enrolled along with controls matched for age, gender, and neighborhood. Pooled, age-stratified conditional logistic regression models were applied to evaluate the association of Aeromonas infection controlling for coinfecting pathogens and sociodemographic variables. A pooled, age-stratified, multivariate logistic regression analysis was done to identify risk factors associated with Aeromonas positivity in MSD cases. A total of 12,110 cases and 17,291 matched controls were enrolled over a period of 48 months. Aeromonas was identified as a significant pathogen in 736 cases of MSD in Pakistan and Bangladesh (22.2%). Aeromonas remained a significant pathogen even after adjustment for the

While most of our samples possessed mtDNA haplotypes that can be linked to European and Near Eastern populations, three Neolithic and all three Bronze Age individuals belonged to mtDNA haplogroup C, which is common in East Eurasian, particularly South Siberian, populations but exceedingly rare in Europe. Phylogeographic network analysis revealed that our samples are located at or near the ancestral node for haplogroup C and that derived lineages branching from the Neolithic samples were present in Bronze Age Kurgans. In light of the numerous examples of mtDNA admixture that can be found in both Europe and Siberia, it appears that the NPR and South Siberia are located at opposite ends of a genetic continuum established at some point prior to the Neolithic. This migration corridor may have been established during the Last Glacial Maximum due to extensive glaciation in northern Eurasia and a consequent aridization of western Asia. This implies the demographic history for the European gene pool is ...

The common elder (Sambucus nigra) is also called the European elder and elderberry. It is native to Europe, including Great Britain, North Africa, and Western Asia. There is an American elderberry, but it is not the same as this tree. This deciduous tree grows to thirty-two feet. It has deeply furrowed bark and a white pith. The leaves are divided into pointed and toothed leaflets that produce a heavy odor when bruised. The flowers are creamy-white, fragrant, and in broad, flattened heads five to eight inches across. The tree flowers in the summer. The black berries are used in wine making, jellies, and jams. Make sure the berries are fully ripe before eating them or they will be poisonous. You must cook them and not eat them raw. The leaves and stems are poisonous.. Elderberry trees grow in zone four to eight. Elderberries grow best in cool climates. They will grow in full sun or partial sun. This tree attracts bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other birds that feed on the ...
Adequate nutrition is essential in early childhood to ensure healthy growth, proper organ formation and function, a strong immune system, and neurological and cognitive development. Child malnutrition - as measured by poor child growth - is an important indicator for monitoring population nutritional status and health. In 2013, about 17%, or 98 million children under five years of age in developing countries were underweight (low weight-for-age according to the WHO child growth standards). Underweight prevalence is highest in the United Nation (UN) region of Southern Asia (30%), followed by Western Africa (21%), Oceania and Eastern Africa (both 19%) and South-Eastern Asia and Middle Africa (both 16%), and Southern Africa 12%. Prevalence below 10% for 2013 is estimated for the UN regions of Eastern, Central and Western Asia, Northern Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean. Childhood malnutrition, including fetal growth restriction, suboptimum breastfeeding, stunting, wasting and Vitamin A and zinc
Neandertals (Homo neanderthalensis) are currently believed to be our closest evolutionary relatives. Although some researchers once thought they were our immediate ancestors in Europe, most now agree that Neandertals and modern humans most likely shared a common ancestor within the last 500,000 years, possibly in Africa.. The morphological features typical of Neandertals first appear in the European fossil record about 400,000 years ago, with bones of full-fledged Neandertals showing up at least 130,000 years ago. They lived in Europe and western Asia, as far east as southern Siberia and as far south as the Middle East (see map), before disappearing from the fossil record about 30,000 years ago. ...
This is a list of conflicts in Europe ordered chronologically, including wars between European states, civil wars within European states, wars between a European state and a non-European state that took place within Europe, and global conflicts in which Europe was a theatre of war. There are various definitions of Europe and in particular there is significant dispute about the eastern and southeastern boundaries, specifically about how to define the countries of the former Soviet Union. This list is based on a wide definition that includes much of the interface between Europe and Western Asia. ...
Future high temperature extremes and soil moisture conditions may cause some regions to become more suitable for rainfed, or non-irrigated, agriculture, while causing other areas to lose suitable farmland, according to a new U.S. Geological Survey study. These future conditions will cause an overall increase in the area suitable to support rainfed agriculture within dryland areas. Increases are projected in North America, western Asia, eastern Asia and South America. In contrast, suitable areas are projected to decline in European dryland areas.. This study focused on understanding and projecting suitability for rainfed agriculture in temperate, or non-tropical, dryland regions. Drylands make up at least 40 percent of the earths land area and rainfed croplands account for approximately 75 percent of global cropland. Worldwide, temperate regions account for 31 percent of the area used to grow wheat and 17 percent used for corn.. Understanding the future potential distribution of rainfed ...
Drone survey of Neanderthal fossil site. Researchers carrying out a drone survey for prehistoric human fossils at the Pinilla del Valle site, in the Lozoya Valley, near Madrid, Spain. Several Neanderthal fossils have been found here. Neanderthals (Homo neanderthalensis) inhabited Europe and western Asia between 230,000 and 29,000 years ago. They did not use complex tools but had mastery of fire and built shelters. It is thought that they had language and a complex social structure, living in small family groups and hunting for food. Excavations have been taking place here every summer for over a decade since around 2002. Photographed in 2014. - Stock Image C024/6105
The Neanderthals inhabited a vast geographical area extending from Europe to western Asia and the Middle East 30,000 to 100,000 years ago. Now, a group of researchers are questioning whether or not the Neanderthals constituted a homogenous group or separate sub-groups (between which slight differences could be observed). A new study published April 15 in the online, open-access, peer-reviewed journal PLoS ONE may provide some answers.
The Goat and the Vine is counted as one of Aesops Fables and is numbered 374 in the Perry Index. There is also a West Asian variant. When a goat starts eating a vines leaves and shoots, the vine retorts that it will still have enough juice left to produce grapes, the wine from which will be poured over it when the goat is sacrificed. The earliest record of the fable is in an epigram by Leonidas of Tarentum, who lived in the area of southern Italy colonised by Greeks in the 3rd century BCE. Later Greek references come from Western Asia, including another epigram by Evenus of Ascalon containing simply the vines retort and the prose collection of fables by Aphthonius of Antioch. Elsewhere in Europe it first appeared in Latin fable collections from German language areas, including Sebastian Brants Esopi Appologi sive Mythologi (1501) and the 150 poems based on fables by Pantaleon Candidus (1604). The tale only began to appear in English fable collections in the 19th century. In ancient times ...
Breeding primarily in Europe, northern Africa, and western Asia, the European bee-eater is a colorful, thin bird. It has yellow and brown upper parts, with a black beak, blue or green belly and green wings. European bee-eaters commonly grow to between 10.6 and 11.4 inches (27 and 29 centimeters), although this length includes their elongated tail feathers, meaning its actual body isnt as long. ...
At any one point in time, 50 percent of all people in the developing world will be in hospital suffering from one or more water-related diseases. Most will be children, water-related diseases being the second biggest killer of children worldwide (after acute respiratory diseases like Tuberculosis), according to Water Aid. (Diarrhea alone has killed more children in 10 years than all the people killed in wartime since World War 2, according to UNICEF).. The situation in the developing world will be particularly difficult moving forward, the U.N.s fourth Global Environment Outlook (GEO-4) is warning -- by 2025, it says, the developing worlds demand for water will have increased by 50 percent (the need of developed countries will have only increased by 18 percent).. Increased demand comes at a time when freshwater stocks are falling in many places. Already in western Asia, reports The Independent, freshwater stocks have fallen from 1,700 cubic meters per person per year in the 1980s to 907 today ...
The country of Turkey is a Eurasian country with a large landmass, covering the Anatolian Peninsula in western Asia and into the Balkan region of southeastern Europe. Turkey, due to the fact that it is located over two continents, has a cultural blend of European and Western influence. The capital of Turkey is Ankara and it is divided into eighty-one different provinces. Although Turkey is primarily located in a largely Mediterranean location, the climate is quite temperate and goes according to regional location. The coastal areas enjoy a milder climate, while locations around the Anatolian plateau can experience extremes between hot and cold. The coasts of the Aegean and Mediterranean coastlines have dry summers, the winters are cool and wet. The coastline of the Black Sea receives the most precipitation during the year with averages around 2,200 millimeters. The Haghia Sophia Museum is a great example of Byzantine artwork. Built by Justinian in the 6th century, it is the third church to ...

Cilicia was settled from the Neolithic period onwards.[6][7] Dating of the ancient settlements of the region from Neolithic to Bronze Age is as follows: Aceramic/Neolithic: 8th and 7th millennia BC; Early Chalcolithic: 5800 BC; Middle Chalcolithic (correlated with Halaf and Ubaid developments in the east): ca. 5400-4500 BC; Late Chalcolithic: 4500- ca. 3400 BC; and Early Bronze Age IA: 3400-3000 BC; EBA IB: 3000-2700 BC; EBA II: 2700-2400 BC; EBA III A-B: 2400-2000 BC.[7]:168-170. The area had been known as Kizzuwatna in the earlier Hittite era (2nd millennium BC). The region was divided into two parts, Uru Adaniya (flat Cilicia), a well-watered plain, and rough Cilicia (Tarza), in the mountainous west.. The Cilicians appear as Khilikku in Assyrian inscriptions, and in the early part of the first millennium BC were one of the four chief powers of western Asia. Homer mentions the plain as the Aleian plain in which Bellerophon wandered,[8] but he transferred the Cilicians far to the west and ...
This Old World rodent is related to Voles, Lemmings, and New World Mice. There are many Hamster species, classified in several genera. They are solitary, burrowing, nocturnal animals, with chunky bodies, usually short tails, soft, thick fur, and large external cheek pouches used for holding food. Hamsters feed on grain and other plant matter and are serious agricultural pests in many parts of their range. The Syrian, or Golden Hamster, of Eastern Europe and Western Asia, is familiar as a laboratory animal and pet (prized for its placidity and cleanliness), but is little known in the wild state. About 15cm long, it is light-colored, with white underparts ...
What is nourishment?. Nourishment is something that is inescapable for the supporting of life. Like air, water and asylum nourishment is likewise a fundamental necessity in our everyday life.

It is also sometimes commonly called field maple (campestre meaning from fields). This is a small, low-branched, dense, rounded, deciduous tree or large multi-stemmed shrub that typically grows in cultivation to 25-35 tall. As the common name suggests, it may be pruned to form a tall hedge. In England it is often included in hedgerows ...
This family includes only two genera, Barbourula and Bombina. Barbourula occurs in the Philippine Islands (Barbourula busuangensis) and Borneo (Barbourula kalimantanensis). The approximately eight species of Bombina are found in Europe, western Asia, China, Vietnam, and Korea.. Bombina are warty, aquatic toads, and tend to be gregarious. The vocal behavior of some Bombina is unusual in that the call is produced during inhalation rather than exhalation as in other frogs. They lay pigmented eggs in ponds. The tadpoles have beaks, two upper and three lower rows of denticles, and a median spiracle (typical Orton Type 3). Species of Bombina have bright red or yellow mottling on the venter. The German word Unke means toad. Bombina exhibit an unken reflex when bothered. The animal will arch its back and limbs to expose the bright belly, and may turn over on its back. This acts as a warning to predators. Not surprisingly, the skin toxins of Bombina are distasteful.. Barbourula are not as brightly ...

Indo-Asians in Canada are at increased risk for cardiovascular diseases. There is a need for cultural and language specific educational materials relating to this risk. During this project we developed and field tested the acceptability of a hypertension public education pamphlet tailored to fit the needs of an at risk local Indo-Asian population, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. A community health board representing Calgarys Indo-Asian communities identified the culturally specific educational needs and language preferences of the local population. An adaptation of an existing English language Canadian Public Hypertension Recommendations pamphlet was created considering the literacy and translation challenges. The adapted pamphlet was translated into four Indo-Asian languages. The adapted pamphlets were disseminated as part of the initial educational component of a community-based culturally and language-sensitive cardiovascular risk factor screening and management program. Field testing of the materials
Background The dimensions of the coronary arteries have been shown to vary among ethnic groups. There are no data available regarding the normal size of coronary arteries in Iranians. This study aimed to investigate normal coronary artery dimensions in a Northwestern Iranian population and to compare it with pooled data of Indo-Asians and Caucasians in previous studies. Methods The study included 200 adults with suspected coronary disease who were referred for elective coronary angiography between June 2012 and March 2013 and were found to have normal epicardial flow in the coronary arteries. Quantitative coronary angiography was carried out on the longest atheroma-free part of the proximal segment of each coronary artery in all patients. Two Indo-Asian and Caucasian groups were selected and pooled for comparison with the available reports on individuals without coronary artery disease. Results The mean diameters of the left main coronary artery, proximal left anterior descending artery, ...

In fact its much more likely that some of these peoples had meaningful contacts with North Africa and West Asia than among them, as suggested by some material archaeological elements like rock art and also some techno-cultural flows. Sadly the archaeology of North Africa and West Asia is often even less known to most people than European one (which is surprisingly misunderstood by way too many people attempting to reconstruct the past from the perspective of population genetics, particularly), this creates a here there be dragons effect that is interpreted by some as a blank check to fill in the blanks (no blanks in fact in most cases, just ignorance) in whatever way they want. This has given rise to myths like the Iberian refuge, the Italian refuge, the Balcan refuge, etc. which hold no ground whatsoever. Another such myth is imagining Mesolithic/Early Neolithic West Asians as some sort of Mary Sue that would have somehow all the imaginary attributes that are denied to European ones: ...
Pulmonary hydatid cyst is a preventable parasitary disease with high prevalence in low-medium income countries. Thoracoscopic approach is seen in the literature as small-case groups and multiple-port incisions are observed in these studies. Unlike other thoracoscopic approaches for the surgical treatment, we describe the single-port technique for the first time in our study. We attempt to compare the clinical outcomes and preliminary results of patients with pulmonary hydatid cyst treated with either minimally invasive or thoracotomy.The medical records of 66 patients undergoing surgery for pulmonary hydatid cyst disease between January 2013 and July 2017 were reviewed. The number of patients who underwent thoracotomy was 48, whereas 18 were managed by single-port video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. Variables statistically compared between the 2 groups were age, diameter of the cystic, operation time, volume and duration of the drainage, postoperative complications, length of stay, duration of ...

The genus Pyrus comprises at least 28 species and 10 naturally occurring interspecific hybrids which are distributed in Europe, the mountains of north Africa, the Middle East, Western Asia and Eastern Asia. The species of major economic importance for fruit production are the Western European pear (Pyrus communis) and five Asian species or interspecific hybrids (P. pashia, P. pyrifolia, P. ussuriensis, P. ×bretschneideri, and P. ×sinkiangensis, which is a complex hybrid involving P. pyrifolia, P. xbretscheideri, P. armeniacifolia, and P. communis. Several species throughout the natural range are used as rootstocks, and P. calleryana, P. fauriei, and a clone of P. salicifolia are used as ornamentals. The genus is thought to have originated in the foothills of the Tian Shan Mountains in western China, with dispersal and speciation following the mountain chains both to the east and west. All species have no major incompatibility barriers to interspecific hybridization. The species are ...

Dense foliage typically grows to 4 tall with a spread to 12-18 wide. Small, succulent, linear-oblong, cylindrical to flattened, green leaves (to 3/4 long) turn reddish brown for fall and winter. Tiny, star-like, white flowers in clusters (paniculate cymes) bloom in mid-summer above the foliage mat. Flowers are attractive to butterflies ...
Theres a reason that Atropa belladonna is commonly called deadly nightshade. While it may not hold the official title of deadliest flower in the world (theres no consensus on that topic), and other flowers like oleander are similarly dangerous, belladonna is notable not only for its ability to kill but for its history and unusual appearance. This perennial herbaceous plant, native to Europe, North Africa and Western Asia, has been used for centuries as a medicine, cosmetic, poison and hallucinogen. Both the foliage and the very juicy and tempting-looking dark purple berries of this plant are highly toxic. The scientific name atropa is thought to be derived from that of the Greek goddess Atropos, one of the three fates, who was responsible for determining a mans death. Belladonna is Italian for beautiful woman. ...
St Johns wort (as used in this study) can be at least as effective as paroxetine in acute treatment of moderate to severe depression among adults in the short-term. It was also introduced to other moderate climate zones. Hypericum perforatum, known as perforate St Johns-wort, common Saint Johns wort, or simply St Johns wort, is a flowering plant in the family Hypericaceae and the type species of the genus Hypericum.. It is hardy to zone (UK) 3. Height: 3 to 72 inches (8 to 180 cm); shrubs and small trees may reach heights of 470 inches (1200 cm). There are many varieties but those commonly sold and grown in gardens are H.x hidcoteense Hidcote and H. calycinum Brigadoon. 1 Because of this, there are many types of St. Johns wort preparations in the form of teas, tinctures, liquids, powders, tablets, and capsules. St. Johns wort is native to and relatively widespread in the moderate climate zones of Europe, western Asia, and North Africa. Buttercup like yellow flowers on red stems bloom ...
Early Neanderthals lived in the Last glacial period for a span of about 100,000 years. Because of the damaging effects the glacial period had on the Neanderthal sites, not much is known about the early species.. Classic Neanderthal fossils have been found over a large area of Europe and Western Asia, including as far south as the Middle East and far east as southern Siberia (Green et al. 2010). Countries where Neanderthal remains are known include most of Europe south of the line of glaciation, roughly along the 50th parallel north, including most of Western Europe, including the south coast of Great Britain (Dargie 2007), Central Europe, the Carpathians, and the Balkans (Durham 2008), some sites in Ukraine and in western Russia. Neanderthal remains also have been found east of Europe in Siberia to the Altai Mountains and south through the Levant to the Indus River. Sites have been found in northern Germany, Israel, Spain (Arsuaga et al. 1989), Italy (Mallegni et al. 1987), Portugal, and ...

Research description: My research has focused primarily on the Middle and Later Pleistocene periods of genus Homo evolution. I have been particularly interested in the evolutionary significance of the distinctive Neandertal craniofacial pattern and the possible developmental, biomechanical, and stochastic models underlying its evolution over time in Europe and western Asia. I am also interested in the origins of modern humans and the evolutionary dynamics associated with the concept of anatomical modernity. I have focused morphologically on the mid-facial region of the skull given the central role that the nasal capsule plays in the development of the hominid cranium in terms of respiratory function, but I have also extended the anatomical focus to ribs and overall thoracic anatomy in fossil humans given its functional tie to respiration as well. My most recent collaborative project has focused on self-domestication as a driving mechanism for facial downsizing in modern humans stemming from ...

So many individuals have Neanderthal genes that may be causing all those allergies. Such symptoms as hay fever may actually be traced to Neanderthal genetic sequences that exist within so many of us today.. Get the Free Tracker App to find a Luvabella in Stock. There was a time when most researchers thought Neanderthals were stupid and couldnt match with modern man as regards intelligence. But new evidence which has been unearthed shows that they were a complex species. Some of them may even have engaged in sex with Homo sapiens. When modern human beings were migrating out of Africa, they met up with Neanderthals from Europe and Western Asia. Some of them chose to cohabit and the result was that Neanderthal DNA got mixed with the modern human genetic code.. DNA from the 1000 Genomes Project was examined by scientists. Genes from Neanderthals and Denisovans were noted down. Especially the genes responsible for regulating the immune system were examined with care.. Innate immunity was studied. ...

APPLE (a common Teut. word, A.S. aepl, aeppel, O.H.G. aphul, aphal, apfal, mod. Ger. Apfel), the fruit of Pyrus Malus, belonging to the sub-order Pomaceae, of the natural order Rosaceae. It is one of the most widely cultivated and best-known and appreciated of fruits belonging to temperate climates. In its wild state it is known as the crab-apple, and is found generally distributed throughout Europe and western Asia, growing in as high a latitude as Trondhjem in Norway. The crabs of Siberia belong to different species of Pyrus. The apple-tree as cultivated is a moderate-sized tree with spreading branches, ovate, acutely serrated or crenated leaves, and flowers in corymbs. The fruit is too well known to need any description of its external characteristics.

Styrax officinalis L. - Styracaceae - storax tree, Storaxbaum Deciduous shrub or small tree, up to 7m high, native to the southeastern Europe and western Asia; leaves alternate, ovate; flowers white, fragrant. „Linnaeus, who determined the scientific names of plants, thought that storax was extracted from the tree called in modern Hebrew livneh refui which he termed Styrax officinalis. However in the light of tests made in Israel it is very doubtful if a sap with medicinal or aromatic qualities can be extracted from this tree. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Styrax_balsam „The essential oil composition of Styrax officinalis L. was investigated by GC and GC-MS for the first time. Oil yields were low, whichever organ was hydrodistilled. Leaf, stem and flower oils consisted of 42.2%, 41.2% and 48.7% of terpenoids, respectively. Among all the identified terpenoids, oxygenated monoterpenes were predominant in all the plant organs. The major compounds in the leaf essential oils were (E)-2-hexenal ...

Since ancient times the civilizational and geopolitical importance of Armenia has been conditioned by the rich natural resources of the Armenian Highland (400,000 km2), its defense power and strategic position in Western Asia and cultural creativeness of the native Armenian nation. The more than five millennia-old ethno-spiritual and cultural roots and political, economic, social and, on the whole, civilizational developments of the Armenian statehood (Aratta, Armanum/Armani, Hayasa, Nairi, Ararat (Van)-Urartu, Great Armenia, Armenia Minor, Cilician Armenia, etc.) are testified to by the archaeological monuments (particularly the early urban sites of the Shengavitian culture), cuneiform, antique and medieval written sources (on the state system, governance and traditional institutions), architecture (temples, churches), craftsmanship [armor craft, building crafts (urban planning, castles, towers, bridges and roads), numismatic data, etc.].
INTRODUCTION: Low vitamin D status is prevalent among South Asians living in the UK. The relationship, however, between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D level (25OHD), serum parathyroid level (PTH) and bone mass in this group of women is unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the association between serum PTH, 25OHD and bone mass in a population based sample of young UK South Asian women. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Names of South Asian women aged 18 to 36 years of Pakistani origin living in the Greater Manchester area were identified from primary care registers using validated computer software. Subjects were invited to attend for (i) a blood test for assessment of serum calcium (Ca), albumin, PTH and 25OHD and (ii) for bone mineral density (BMD) scanning using the following: areal BMD at the hip (femoral neck, total hip) and lumbar spine using dual X-ray absorptiometry (Hologic QDR 4500), and volumetric BMD at the distal radius using peripheral quantitative computed tomography (Norland Stratec XCT 2000).
In so far as India, South Asia, and the Himalayas are concerned, the airflow patterns from West Asia are regularly reported in major national dailies. What they dont report is that these air currents carry depleted uranium particles at low, medium, and high altitude, from West Asia, North Africa, Afghanistan and Pakistan across India, the Himalayas into China. This typical airflow pattern continues across Asia, and is carried around the world mixing with the global atmosphere within weeks. Further evidence comes from scientists [who have expressly forbidden me to disclose their name and place of work] who have tracked abnormal air current movements from the Gulf to Delhi, sometimes under bone-dry conditions. In Image 3, I have given the normal cloud movement from the same source. In Image 4, one can clearly see that while there is no cloud cover and there was a strong surface wind towards the mid-Arabian Sea, the streak was found moving towards Delhi. The same scientist further notes that the ...

The regions of the Caucasus, Anatolia, and the Near East represent an extremely important area with respect to ancient population migration and expansion, and the spread of the Caucasian, Indo-European, Afro-Asiatic, and Altaic languages. We examined genetic variation within and between 12 ethno-territorial populations belonging to four major language families by using six microsatellites, or short tandem repeats (STR) and 12 Unique Event Polymorphism (UEP) loci mapped to the non-recombining portion of the human Y-chromosome. The applied set of markers did not unconditionally support the language replacement hypothesis for the populations under consideration. Moreover, regarding the South Caucasus and Anatolia, our results showed greater genetic distances between the populations from different language families, and close genetic affinity for the populations from the same language group-in this case, for the Turkophone ethnic units. The results point to the importance of appropriate Y-chromosome
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on the costs and funding of contingency operations in the Balkans and Southwest Asia during fiscal year (FY) 1999 and 2000.GAO noted that: (1) the Department of Defense (DOD) reported $5.9 billion in incremental costs for contingency in FY 1999; (2) Army costs accounted for about half of reported costs; Air Force costs accounted for about one-third; and the Navy, Marine Corps, and other parts of DOD, such as the Special Operations Command, accounted for the remainder; (3) most of the funds used, 91 percent, were from the operation and maintenance appropriations account, and the bulk of these costs were for what is termed operating support, which includes flying aircraft, steaming ships, operating ground vehicles, and building and operating facilities for deployed forces; (4) from the inception of both the Balkans and Southwest Asia operations in 1992 and 1991, respectively, through September 1999, DOD has reported about $19 billion in

The years 800-200 BCE comprise one of the most creative and influential eras in world history. Karl Jaspers termed this epoch the Axial Age, to indicate its pivotal importance in the evolution of human thought. The ferment of religious and philosophical activity centered in four distinct regions of civilization: East Asia, South Asia, West Asia, and the Northeastern Mediterranean. Each of these areas witnessed the emergence of several imaginative individuals whose exemplary lives and teachings prompted their followers to create the traditions that led to the birth of the world religions. Zoroaster, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Gautama Buddha, Confucius, Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle side by side, we are able to see more clearly the questions with which they struggled, their similarities and differences, and how their ideas have influenced religious thought down to our day ...

In effect, the language people speak is at least partly determined by genes, rather than just experience alone. About half the worlds languages are tonal languages, in which the pitch or tone of words and syllables makes a difference to word meaning. Examples include: Chinese, Thai, Yoruba, and Zulu. In Mandarin Chinese, for example, the syllable ma can take on several unique meanings: when its pronounced with a single high-pitched tone, ma means mother. But when it has a low-pitched lilt in the middle, it means horse, making it a word you dont want to mispronounce. In contrast, English is a non-tonal language. This split is unevenly distributed: tonal languages are the norm in sub-Saharan Africa and are common in Southeast Asia and among Native American languages especially in parts of Central and South America. Non-tonal languages are the norm in Europe and Central, South and West Asia, and among the aboriginal languages of Australia. If your ancestors were all European, with mostly ...
