To give or sell human gametes--the interplay between pragmatics, policy and ethics. (1/13)

The ever-growing acceptance and use of assisted human reproduction techniques has caused demand for "donated" sperm and eggs to outstrip supply. Medical professionals and others argue that monetary reward is the only way to recruit sufficient numbers of "donors". Is this a clash between pragmatics and policy/ethics? Where monetary payments are the norm, alternative recruitment strategies used successfully elsewhere may not have been considered, nor the negative consequences of commercialism on all participants thought through. Considerations leading some countries to ban the buying and selling of sperm, eggs and embryos are outlined and a case made that the collective welfare of all involved parties be the primary consideration in this, at times heated, debate.  (+info)

Commodification and exploitation: arguments in favour of compensated organ donation. (2/13)

This paper takes the view that compensated donation and altruism are not incompatible. In particular, it holds that the arguments against giving compensation stand on weak rational grounds: (1) the charge that compensation fosters "commodification" has neither been specific enough to account for different types of monetary transactions nor sufficiently grounded in reality to be rationally convincing; (2) although altruism is commendable, organ donors should not be compelled to act purely on the basis of altruistic motivations, especially if there are good reasons to believe that significantly more lives can be saved and enhanced if incentives are put in place, and (3) offering compensation for organs does not necessarily lead to exploitation-on the contrary, it may be regarded as a necessity in efforts to minimise the level of exploitation that already exists in current organ procurement systems.  (+info)

Ethical conflicts in public health research and practice: antimicrobial resistance and the ethics of drug development. (3/13)

Since the 1960s, scientists and pharmaceutical representatives have called for the advancement and development of new antimicrobial drugs to combat infectious diseases. In January 2005, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN), MD, introduced a biopreparedness bill that included provisions for patent extensions and tax incentives to stimulate industry research on new antimicrobials. Although government stimulus for private development of new antimicrobials is important, it does not resolve long-standing conflicts of interest between private entities and society. Rising rates of antimicrobial resistance have only exacerbated these conflicts. We used methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus as a case study for reviewing these problems, and we have suggested alternative approaches that may halt the vicious cycle of resistance and obsolescence generated by the current model of antimicrobial production.  (+info)

Taking tissue seriously means taking communities seriously. (4/13)

BACKGROUND: Health research is increasingly being conducted on a global scale, particularly in the developing world to address leading causes of morbidity and mortality. While research interest has increased, building scientific capacity in the developing world has not kept pace. This often leads to the export of human tissue (defined broadly) from the developing to the developed world for analysis. These practices raise a number of important ethical issues that require attention. DISCUSSION: In the developed world, there is great heterogeneity of regulatory practices regarding human tissues. In this paper, we outline the salient ethical issues raised by tissue exportation, review the current ethical guidelines and norms, review the literature on what is known empirically about perceptions and practices with respect to tissue exportation from the developing to the developed world, set out what needs to be known in terms of a research agenda, and outline what needs to be done immediately in terms of setting best practices. We argue that the current status of tissue exportation is ambiguous and requires clarification lest problems that have plagued the developed world occur in the context of global heath research with attendant worsening of inequities. Central to solutions to current ethical concerns entail moving beyond concern with individual level consent and embracing a robust interaction with communities engaged in research. CONCLUSION: Greater attention to community engagement is required to understand the diverse issues associated with tissue exportation.  (+info)

In December 1999, before making any infrastructure investments, the private water company, Aguas del Tunari, announced the doubling of water prices. For most Bolivians, this meant that water would now cost more than food; for those on minimum wage or unemployed, water bills suddenly accounted for close to half their monthly budgets, and for many, water was shut off completely. To add to the problem, the Bolivian government, prompted by the World Bank, granted absolute monopolies to private water concessionaires, announced its support for full-cost water pricing, pegged the cost of water to the American dollar and declared that none of the World Bank loan could be used to subsidize water services for the poor. All water, even from community wells, required permits to access, and even peasants and small farmers had to buy permits to gather rainwater on their property ...

As far as Transamerica is concerned, Brees efforts to acquire normative female beauty, as defined by the narrow terms of our cis-patriarchal, white-centric, able-centric culture, is interchangeable with the whole her worth, validity, struggle and growth as a human being.. While the "passable" trans women of the support group are played by trans actresses, Bree, so as to appear "trans" enough to film her struggle to achieve the (not exactly a thing) goal of "passing" as a "real, non-artificial" woman, is portrayed by cisgender actress Felicity Huffman adorned in prosthetics and make-up deliberately contrived to make her "look trans" (also not exactly a thing).. Altogether, Ive frequently felt that Transamerica, more than anything else, is a commercial. An advertisement for "passing", for the "legitimate" form of transness and the assumed trans narrative, for a certain standard of female beauty, for the acquisition of womanhood, and for the products and surgeries and organizations and behaviours ...

My first thought when reading Taiye Selasis 2005 essay Bye-Bye Barbar (or What is an Afropolitan?) was that this is the kind of sludge that would piss off Binyavanga Wainaina. One quick google and lo and behold: "For Wainaina, Afropolitanism has become the marker of crude cultural commodification - a phenomenon increasingly product driven, design focused, and potentially funded by the West." My second thought when reading Taiye Selasis What is an Afropolitan?, gesturing wildly at my MacBook in my local coffee shop, is that this is the kind of sludge that pisses me off.. I am angry for different reasons to Wainaina (though if he wanted to hang out sometime Im sure we could have fun being pissed off together); I am not so much concerned with the commodification inherent in Afropolitanism as I am with the danger of reproducing a reductive narrative, one which implicitly licenses others to reproduce the same narrative because it has been confirmed by an Afropolitan herself.. First, in ...

Rice is a thinly traded, highly concentrated commodity with only 7 percent of total global production sold outside national borders. The top five exporters account for 80 percent of total exports, which makes importing countries vulnerable to export bans or restrictions.. The drought that began last year and has continued into 2016 has negatively impacted agricultural production in several countries. It has also caused a decline in rice supply and stockpiles in many parts of the world, particularly in the worlds three largest rice exporters in the-India, Thailand and Vietnam.. Thailand announced earlier this year that it will not increase rice exports, while Vietnam is expecting a slight drop in paddy rice production this year. The Philippines, according to various forecasts, is expected to fail again to achieve self-sufficiency this year due to drought and palay production falling below full-year targets.. Critics have said that rice sufficiency in the Philippines is unlikely within the next ...

The absolute artwork meets the absolute commodity Stewart Martin Art s relation to commodification is an unavoidable and entrenched condition for much of the theory, history and practice of art today;
Strange Bedfellows!" lamented the title of a recent letter to Museum News, in which a certain Harriet Sherman excoriated the National Gallery of Art in Washington for its handling of tickets to the much-ballyhooed "Van Goghs van Goghs" exhibit. A huge proportion of the 200,000 free tickets were snatched up by homeless opportunists in the dead of winter, who then scalped those tickets at $85 apiece to less hardy connoiseurs.. Yet, Shermans bedfellows are far from strange. Art, despite its religious and magical origins, very soon became a commercial venture. From bourgeois patrons funding art they barely understood in order to share their protegees prestige, to museum curators stage-managing the cult of artists in order to enhance the market value of museum holdings, entrepreneurs have found validation and profit in big-name art. Speculators, thieves, and promoters long ago created and fed a market where cultural icons could be traded like commodities.. This trend toward commodification of ...
Open-Source 101. Nearly everyone knows about open-source software (OSS). Sure, you may not be a coder, but youve used the Internet, which is pretty much fully made of OSS: websites running the ubiquitous Apache webserver software, displaying customized sites written in Ruby or PHP, drawing on pools of data stored in MySQL databases all running on server computers running the open-source Linux operating system.. The fantastic thing about all this free OSS is how it has helped proliferate the Internet, improving the functionality of the web through rapid mutations in code (thats the free-as-in-speech part) and driving down the cost to commodity levels (thats the free-as-in-beer part). The commodification of the Internet-that is, the marginal cost of an blog or email account is so low that its essentially free-and indeed nearly all computer software and hardware would not be possible without OSS.. OK, so thats the state of the Internet as of circa 1995. Although the details have evolved, the ...
Originally published at The Federalist). The liberal media collective has lost their minds over the confirmation of President Trump appointee Sarah Pitlyk to a seat in a federal court. What is the outrage du jour? That the Honorable Judge Pitlyk recognizes the negative effects of invitro fertilization and surrogacy on women and children.. The Hill, Daily Beast, Bustle, Common Dreams, and of course Jezebel are sobbing in their beers over Pitlyks confirmation. The HuffPo headlined with a claim Pitlyk is "opposed to fertility treatments." Mother Jones laments that Pitlyk has "fought against abortion, fertility treatments, and surrogacy.". While there exists a sliver of truth in those headlines, what Pitlyk actually said was that IVF and surrogacy "leads to diminished respect for motherhood and the unique mother-child bond, the exploitation of women, the commodification of gestation and of children themselves.". As the founder and director of a nonprofit organization devoted to defending childrens ...
Book: Dan Schiller, Digital Depression: Information Technology and Economic Crisis. University of Illinois Press, 2014. Excerpted from a review by Richard Hill:. "According to some, the current governance arrangement for the Internet is nearly ideal. In particular, its global multi-stakeholder model of governance has resulted in a free and open Internet, which has enabled innovation and driven economic growth and well-being around the world. Others are of the view that things have not worked out that well. In particular, the Internet has resulted in mass surveillance by governments and by private companies, in monopolization, commodification and monetization of information and knowledge, in inequitable flows of finances between poor and rich countries, and in erosion of cultural diversity; further, those with central positions of influence have used it to consolidate power and to establish a new global regime of control and exploitation, under the guise of favoring liberalization, while in ...

This article is concerned with the efforts of a Garifuna community in Honduras to claim a space in the growing local tourist economy. Its inhabitants maintain that they suffer a form of culture loss because they do not control the commodification of their culture through tourism. By examining the local perspective, we argue that cultural performances could be treated as cultural property and consumed by tourists in a context of mutual exchange as opposed to a hegemonic one. We suggest that every cultural performance entails a statement about collective identity and thus the local battle for cultural ownership relates to the politics of self-representation and the position of the community in the wider world. The members of the community we studied articulate their desire to become an attraction, which can fully satisfy the tourist quest for authenticity and difference. Only this has to take place on their own terms, to serve their interests and to promote the image they have about themselves and ...
Presented at once as an example, and even a condition of the economic, technological, political and security development of Turkey, the Turkification of the defence industry lies at the heart of the governments legitimacy. Following a socio-historical approach, this chapter aims to understand how this major project, inseparable from the ongoing formation of the state and of a national bourgeoisie organically related to it, was reconfigured in the neo-liberal era not despite globalisation but based on it, particularly through the commodification of Muslim solidarity and military protection. This project appears to constitute an instrument of nationaliberal extraversion that is part of an unstable quest for hegemony, riven by numerous conflicts.
ISSUE: Despite international controversy over the patenting of human genes and other life forms, US-based genomic companies (in partnership with major pharmaceutical corporations), are filing patents for exclusive monopoly control on human genes and gene fragments. IMPACT: The commercial potential of genomic technologies is still untested and unproved. But the commodification of human genetic material raises many profound questions: Who will control the genes and genetic information that may someday unlock secrets to genetic diagnosis and treatment of human diseases? Will the patent grab on human genes ultimately thwart innovation as well as information exchange between public and private sector researchers, and between North and South? Who will benefit, and at what cost to society?
Centering Animals in Latin American History writes animals back into the history of colonial and postcolonial Latin America. This collection reveals how interactions between humans and other animals have significantly shaped narratives of Latin American histories and cultures. The contributors work through the methodological implications of centering animals within historical narratives, seeking to include nonhuman animals as social actors in the histories of Mexico, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Chile, Brazil, Peru, and Argentina. The essays discuss topics ranging from canine baptisms, weddings, and funerals in Bourbon Mexico to imported monkeys used in medical experimentation in Puerto Rico. Some contributors examine the role of animals in colonization efforts. Others explore the relationship between animals, medicine, and health. Finally, essays on the postcolonial period focus on the politics of hunting, the commodification of animals and animal parts, the protection ...

The show is not narrative in any way, and is just as much about the seductive, and possibly dangerous, beauty in the visual design of data as it is the content of the works text. And it is those visual elements that really anchor the performance overall. They are striking and more complex than they seem in that they are generated on the spot and not simply prerecorded animation that is cued up to the text. The lecture being given by Abacus veers from inspirational to disturbingly dogmatic in its ersatz progressive philosophy. The show is often enticing and does score its points about the banality of ideas and their commodification with a good deal of subtlety. It does risk being a bit too subtle at times: there is clearly some ambivalence toward the value of the progressive ideas about environmentalism and correcting societal ills that fill the suave, persuasive Abacus talk. But something is always just a little bit off, reminding the audience that the show is still on another level a put on ...

This was my first time being published in Best American Poetry after over 15 years of publishing poems in journals-and, yes, I realize all of the problematics of an anthology calling itself the "Best," especially one that follows such a partial and subjective selection process-but I will admit to having felt a dorky thrill at being included in a volume-hardcover, no less!-that includes so many amazing poets, including two of my career-long idols, Claudia Rankine and Louise Glück. So when the book came in the mail, I showed it to my husband, who put it on the coffee table. Well, suffice it to say, its off the coffee table now.. What surprised me, though, was that what replaced the little thrill wasnt anger or righteousness, but a little twinge I eventually identified as a vestigial feeling of shame. And I know that the only bright spot of this whole revolting mess is that it gives us an opportunity to focus the spotlight on larger questions of the construction and commodification of ...

Joe Brolly wrote an interesting article on the commodification of sport in this weeks issue of Gaelic Life. Its a topic that crops up frequently as a critique of capitalist culture, from the Against Modern Football movement to combat the pricing of working-class fans out of the game, to controversies over the proliferation of performing-enhancing drugs in elite sport, to debates over whether college athletes should unionise in the United States.. Brolly, a former Derry footballer turned RTÉ pundit, explores it in the context of the amateur GAA and specifically mens gaelic football. His thesis is that the increasing commercialism of the GAA leadership is driving the sport towards professionalism, instilling a will to win that is sapping the love of the game from the players and producing private bodies which are enriching the few at the expense of the many.. What hes describing is similar to a process philosopher Georg Lukács called "reification". This is where human relations or properties ...

Such commodification is not happening against the wishes of ordinary citizens but because this is what ordinary citizen-consumer want. Look no further than Googles email and Amazons Kindle to see that no one is forced to use them: people do it willingly.

New predictions for the end of the world just keep on cropping up. Its called a Negative Energy Cloud and there is absolutely no physical evidence for its existence. Still, this could be one of the most real and dangerous threats facing the planet Earth. This is the theory and a little of its history. In February 1940 a German physicist by the name of Hans Dietrich Freuder (most likely from Freiburg) was invited by a certain Dr. Hans Reiter to prepare himself to work at the Norsk Hydro in Vemork, Norway. However, in 1941 after setting out for his destination he was redirected to Peenemunde on the Baltic Sea. There is no record of what he worked on during this time but in November 1943 he resurfaced in Berlin having just recovered from severe burns and temporary deafness. He allegedly addressed a small group of scientists at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology and introduced a radical new concept. In attendance were Drs Lenz, Fischer, Plank, Verschuer and Debye. He explained that work ...
The strain this acceleration of and growth of demand has put on the worlds productive capacity for the ores of the base metals has now highlighted the differences among the base metals themselves by resolving them, by use, into the structural metals and the enabling structural metals. China alone today, in 2011, already uses 60% of all of the iron ore mined globally and 33% of the aluminum ore. Huge investments of capital in the ores of both of these base structural metals have been made outside of China solely for the purpose of supplying just China. Investors should note that unless the demand for base structural metals grows in the other BRICS-the resource rich and/or resource mega-demanding nations of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa- China could create chaos in the world iron-ore market simply by increasing its domestic output to self-sufficiency, which is in fact possible, although not today economical.

As far as the angler is concerned, the salmons whereabouts in the river are highly predictable. The homing salmon is a travelling fish with a sense of purpose and a goal ahead of it. When conditions are right, ie. when fresh water is coming down to urge it on, it moves on upstream and is usually uncatchable. However, it must rest, and the resting places or holding pools are where the angler finds it. In these pools the salmon lies are usually well known and do not vary except when flood conditions alter the contours of the river bed. Salmon often pack into a pool in numbers when water conditions become low. They are then usually torpid and uninterested in any fly or bait. The strange thing is that salmon do not eat when in the river but live off their sea fat. However, they will still snap at the anglers artificial offering.. Three-quarters of the success attained in salmon fishing results from knowing where fish lie. This is especially true in spring, when the uniformly high level of water ...
Swamp Toad" talks. First of all, "We Did Not Elect Ted Cruz". We elected Donald Trump. Ted Cruz in this interview croaks about lowering healthcare costs the "Freedom Caucus" way but he doesnt say that it entails tossing everyone on obamacare to the streets.

There has been talk about Donald Trump not letting the press view his signing of certain legislation and I bet it was the Ted Cruz bills.

Times have changed. The pharmaceutical industry is in trouble: the golden age of medicine has creaked to a halt, the low-hanging fruit of medical research has all been harvested, and the industry is rapidly running out of new drugs. Fifty "novel molecular entities" a year were registered in the 1990s, but now its down to 20, and many of those are just copies of other companies products, changed only enough to justify a new patent. So the story of "disease mongering" goes like this: because they cannot find new treatments for the diseases we already have, the pill companies have instead had to invent new diseases for the treatments they already have.. Recent favourites include social anxiety disorder (a new use for SSRI antidepressant drugs), female sexual dysfunction (a new use for Viagra in women), the widening diagnostic boundaries of "restless leg syndrome", and of course "night eating syndrome" (another attempt to sell SSRI medication, bordering on self-parody) to name just a few: all ...

Donald Richmond Horne AO (26 December 1921 - 8 September 2005) was an Australian journalist, writer, social critic, and academic who became one of Australias best known public intellectuals, from the 1960s until his death. Horne was a prolific author who published three novels and more than twenty volumes of history, memoir and political and cultural analysis. He also edited The Bulletin, The Observer and Quadrant. His best known work was The Lucky Country (1964), an evaluation of Australian society that questioned many traditional attitudes: "Australia is a lucky country, run by second-rate people who share its luck." Donald Hornes early life was recounted in the first volume of his memoirs The Education of Young Donald (1967). He was born in Kogarah, New South Wales and raised in Muswellbrook (where his father was a teacher at the local school) and Sydney. He enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Sydney in 1939 and attended Canberra University College; however he never ...

Donald Trump raised his children on hard work before they gained access to executive positions and family paychecks at their fathers real estate company. They are well spoken and tuned into what all of us non wealthy deplorables have to go through including women. Actually, Id really like to see Don or Eric go face to face in a debate against Billary Clinton and have their father step aside. Don and Eric are much better speakers than their father Donald Trump. Ive heard Ivanka Trump speak also and shes just as well spoken as Don and Eric but doesnt seem to have the drive to mentally "Eat" like Don and Eric. Im sure if Ivanka gets pissed off at Billary her well spoken words would gain the drive to mentally "Eat". ...

Motherhood, within the dynamics of the communities studied in the Welfare and Values in Europe (WaVE) project, is an important factor that can both draw women closer to mainstream society and push them away. In this article, primarily focusing on the results of the case study conducted in Darlington, England, the values which underpin this gender-specific tension between care and career are discussed. The study has shown that while by no means a phenomenon exclusive to the minority communities studied, or necessarily related to religious belief, gender-specific tension is particularly evident within minority and religious groups. In the choice between career and caring, values of independence, selfdetermination, and personal fulfilment collide with those of duty to the family and the self-sufficiency of the family unit. These conflicts are evident today, but also, to an increasing extent, are being stored up for the future. Methodological questions regarding the complexity of studying the ...
ECOWAS has long recognised in its common agricultural agenda the central role food staples play in combatting food insecurity and poverty, yet policies to create a regional market have not yet been translated into national implementation, and regional markets remain highly fragmented.. This is despite existing natural cross-border markets, and trade in food staples is actually already vibrant - even as policies are missing - finding its way through informality. According to recent estimates discussed in the report, informal trade is rampant for most products, accounting for at least ¾ of intraregional trade in staples.. Yet, many ECOWAS member states continue to pursue the sole goal of national self-sufficiency, passing on the costs of these policies to consumers, sometimes offsetting with government consumption subsidies, while taking away precious opportunities from producers and ultimately failing to establish secure internal markets anyway. In the context of thriving cross-border markets, ...

The transformation of normal cells to cancerous cells can differ profoundly in each type of malignancy, but in each case, there seems to be a convergence towards altering some of the basic cellular functions. These alterations are commonly known as the hallmarks of cancer (1). Despite the different origins of the malignancy (mutations, gene expression alteration, epigenetic changes, etc.), each malignancy leads to similar changes in the phenotype such as self-sufficiency in growth signals, resistance to growth inhibitory signals and anti-cancer therapy, evasion of programmed cell death, unlimited replication capability, sustained ability for angiogenesis, etc. Since multiple pathways are dysfunctional in cancers, and cancers accumulate new oncogenic mutations as they progress, researchers require sophisticated research tools that profile multiple biological events simultaneously. QIAGEN provides a broad range of assay technologies for cancer research, enabling analysis of gene expression
Predictions suggest that global population will exceed nine billion and crop yields must approximately double by 2050 to adequately feed an increasing global population. Thus in a world dealing with hunger and malnutrition, the demand for food security and healthier diets is continuously on the rise. Although we have obtained self-sufficiency in producing adequate food in many parts of the world, most food produced fails to deliver the required quantity of essential nutrients for supporting human growth, development, and disease prevention in later life. Among the nutrient often deficient in the food supply include iron (Fe), zinc (Zn) and protein. Thus, the health and wellness of future generations will depend on our ability to sustainably produce and deliver sufficient nutritious food to the world population.Historically, breeding for nutritional traits through conventional/traditional breeding has yielded reasonably good results provided by improved varieties developed with enhanced nutritional
By Dr. Osvaldo Sosa, Health and Human Development Manager, Pro Mujer in Argentina (PMA). In mid-May, we launched a four-month long campaign with the aim of developing a better understanding of the health-related challenges our clients face and providing screenings for cardiovascular diseases. The goal of this campaign, which was implemented in our 15 community centers, was to mitigate our clients risk factors, help them improve their quality of life and foster self-sufficiency.. According to the latest study on risk factors from Argentinas Department of Health, high blood pressure is the primary cause behind 62% of strokes and 49% of incidents of coronary disease in this country. This data shows that high levels of cholesterol are responsible for 59% of incidents of heart disease. Diabetes raises this number by 15% and further explains 13% of chronic dialysis cases.. Non-communicable diseases i.e. hypertension, diabetes, cancers, etc. can be prevented by controlling these risk factors. ...

No one in Ohio has to be told the state took a pretty bad economic hit in the recession. Just how bad the fallout has been (and likely will remain for a while yet) is reflected in poverty figures reported separately this week by the Ohio Association of Community Action Agencies and by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.The profile of poverty presented in the community agency groups 2012 State of Poverty report shows not only that some 1.8 million Ohioans already fall below the federal poverty level but also that the financial hold of many working households is tenuous. Consider the amount of income necessary to meet basic living needs - such as food, housing, health care and transportation - without assistance, and 35 percent of Ohioans do not meet this measure of self-sufficiency.Roughly one household in four does not have enough savings, retirement or other assets to equal three months of living expenses, leaving them vulnerable to the…
Merely managing homelessness is in no ones best interest. IHCDA and its partners are focused on systematically preventing and ending homelessness for those most vulnerable in our communities. By identifying an individuals or familys barriers to self-sufficiency and targeting the most appropriate housing solution, we can help to minimize the number of people that enter the homelessness delivery system and the duration of time they spend in it. For the chronically homeless--those who cycle through health care institutions and correctional facilities seeking services and shelter-- linking services with housing provides them stability and reduces the burden on other community systems. Regarding beneficiaries, disabled is defined as any person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; has a record of such impairment; or is regarded as having such impairment. The definition of a person with disabilities does not exclude persons who have the ...
With government budgets shrinking and private donors increasingly interested in achieving measurable impacts for their financial support, the challenge of identifying and maximizing public-private partnerships has never been greater.. Abt Associates is well-versed in engaging the private sector to promote positive development outcomes around the world. Whether its to improve nutrition in the developing world or increase the self-sufficiency of low-income Americans, we bring public and private stakeholders together with a clear understanding of their roles and what is required to accomplish positive change. Sometimes the match-ups are obvious ones; other times, the result of our willingness to find new ways to approach age-old problems.. True change takes collaborative mobilization of both the public and private sectors. That strongly held belief drives us to focus on original long-term solutions that not only stabilize economies, but also promise a better way of life for all involved.. ...
To improve Member State capabilities in the production and use of radioisotope products for supporting the management of cancer and other chronic diseases. To take the full advantage of the benefits that these radioactive products can offer, it is essential to have the necessary infrastructure as well as qualified trained personnel. The IAEA, through the Nuclear Applications Programme, strives to promote worldwide availability of products and facilities needed to extend the benefits of radioisotope products and radiation technology to large segments of the population of developing Member States. In particular, the IAEA helps Member States to achieve self-sufficiency in the production of radioisotopes and radiopharmaceuticals, strengthen quality assurance practices and regulatory compliance and facilitates development of human resources. The IAEAs multi-pronged need-based approach includes providing advice, assistance and support for capacity building for: ...
Well, you have to remember the historical circumstances that gave rise to the creation of Social Security and pensions and the like in the first place. These programs and systems developed not because we considered it some kind of big social problem that people werent getting to enjoy their sunset years in a state of permanent leisure, or whatever: Its that we had massive levels of life threatening and debilitating poverty among our older populations that were keeping and/or dragging our younger populations down into poverty too (people may want to believe in the ideal of self-sufficiency and all that, but the reality is after age 60, even despite current medical advances, life is much more dangerous and health much more fragile and few who dont command significant stores of personal wealth to draw on can manage life at that age unassisted--health care is inherently more expensive for older people, so in an era of rapidly increasing health care costs, the last thing we need is the end of ...
This fact is often ignored in the great debate on GMOs. When farmers purchase seeds, they purchase the ability to grow those seeds and harvest its crop. Farmers must sign a contract that prevents them from saving seeds. Thus, in a sense, farmers are growing someone elses seeds, as the entire seed industry has now become controlled by only a handful of corporations. Seed-saving is an ancient practice, and one that fosters self-sufficiency, resilience, and biological diversity, and it has now been greatly impaired by the privatization of genetic material. This dead-end farming that makes farmers ever more reliant on corporations first began with the development of hybridized seeds - well before GMOs - which generally produced non-viable seeds and thus forced farmers to re-purchase seeds on a yearly basis. This practice then passed to GMOs. In a sense, the GMO farmer has become a modern-day sharecropper, growing someone elses crops ...
Most of us pride ourselves on our self-sufficiency. We like to be responsible for taking care of ourselves and pulling our own weight in the world. This is why it can be so challenging when we find ourselves in a situation in which we have to rely on someone else. This can happen as the result of an illness or an injury, or even in the case of a positive change, such as the arrival of a newborn. At times like these, it is essential that we let go of our feeling that we should be able to do it all by ourselves and accept the help of others.. The first step is accepting the situation fully as it is. Too often we make things worse either by trying to do more than we should or by lapsing into feelings of uselessness. In both cases we run the risk of actually prolonging our dependency. In addition, we miss a valuable opportunity to practice acceptance and humility. The ego resists what is, so when we move into acceptance we move into the deeper realm of the soul. In needing others and allowing them ...

In Africa, women remain among the poorest of the poor despite producing three-quarters of the continents food. But in Tanzania, some women are trying to gain a foothold toward self-sufficiency.
My question is this: Wouldnt such a policy have a positive effect on the wage rate, on a naturally justifiable basis? Its generally recognized that when women came into the work force en masse, thereby effectively doubling the supply of labor, this had a depressing effect on wages. If we had a guaranteed minimum income (which may or may not be enough for bare subsistence), wouldnt this make people less desperate to get jobs, and wouldnt this presumably require employers to pay more in wages to get people to work for them? It would naturally raise the wages of those who do choose to get jobs. I am sensible of the fact that employers have an interest in keeping wages low, but wouldnt our economy be a better place, and more closely approximate American ideals of self-sufficiency and equality, if more people worked for themselves rather than employers? A guaranteed minimum income would increase the incentives and the ability of people to gather a little capital and become self-employed. ...
As mentioned earlier, the theoretical possibility of eliminating hepatitis virus or viruses during manufacture of factor concentrates was identified in the 1970s. But it was envisaged as a major challenge - in any process devised the activity of Factor VIII, a heat-sensitive material, would have to be preserved. Further, any additional process would reduce yield, and maximising yield was a priority in an era where national self-sufficiency was the aim and there was high local demand. It was not obvious how all these goals could be met simultaneously. Initial ideas centred on inactivation by heat, radiation or chemical treatment. Many different attempts had been made using specific techniques in these categories but none had succeeded in eliminating infectivity without unacceptable damage to product. In October 1980, however, it emerged that a German company, Behring, had apparently succeeded in developing a pasteurisation process, using stabilisers to protect the Factor VIII. Full details of how ...

Micro- and small-business lending challenges the idea that enterprise is a uniquely "Western" value.

The loans are audited and community-based, with default rates a fraction of the International Monetary Funds tragically bad big-loan performance. For self-sustaining enterprise, small really is beautiful ...

The insurance in joblessness protection is fundamental in clarifying its significance. The benefits are paid through taxes gathered from those who are employed and not those who are not employed. Similarly, as your insurance installments are a piece of a similar pot that assets you when you crash your vehicle, everybody pays into the pot that assets joblessness benefits.. Having work is simply the quickest course of self-sufficiency. Joblessness insurance or fagfOrening is intended to overcome any issues in of income made when you lose your job and enable you to remain with financial independence.

If you have no money, than its even more important to be supportive of your adult children. Now that I got that out of the way, however, money is sometimes where the rubber meets the road.

But complaining about the cost of your yacht maintenance while your kids are struggling is not going to get you whatever sympathy youre looking for. Its not an empathic thing to do, and its potentially lethal to the relationship you have with those grandkids. So if you can, put money away for college. If you cant, share with an open hand. Take the grandchildren to Disneyland. If thats too much, take them to ...
