Global climate change. (1/299)

Most of the last 100,000 years or longer has been characterized by large, abrupt, regional-to-global climate changes. Agriculture and industry have developed during anomalously stable climatic conditions. New, high-resolution analyses of sediment cores using multiproxy and physically based transfer functions allow increasingly confident interpretation of these past changes as having been caused by "band jumps" between modes of operation of the climate system. Recurrence of such band jumps is possible and might be affected by human activities.  (+info)

Clinical characteristics of unexplained sudden cardiac death in Korea. (2/299)

In Western countries, sudden cardiac death (SCD) is closely related to coronary artery disease, but in Korea the clinical characteristics of SCD are not well determined. Over a 4-year period (June 1995 to May 1999), 186 cases of SCD, ranging in age from 16 to 75 years, were admitted to the Chonnam National University Hospital. In 82 (44.1%) of these, neither symptoms nor evidence of structural heart disease was found and so their clinical characteristics were investigated. There were 66 (80.5%) men and 16 (19.5%) women (male/female ratio = 4.1:1). The mean age was 50 +/- 14 years: 19 (23.2%) were in their 40s, 21 (25.6%) in their 50s, and 17 (20.7%) in their 60s. The time of circulatory collapse witnessed in 68 cases of SCD showed 2 peaks: between midnight and 03.00h (n=16, 23.5%) and between 09.00h and midday (n=15, 22.1%). Unexplained SCD occurred at home in 48 (64.9%) cases and on the street in 12 (16.2%); it occurred during normal daily routine activity in 23 (39.6%) and during sleep in 15 (25.9%). Thirty-three patients (40.2%) experienced various prodromal symptoms, including chest discomfort (n=13, 15.9%) and dyspnea (n=8, 9.8%). The electrocardiogram taken on arrival recorded asystole in 65 (79.3%) and ventricular fibrillation in 17 (20.7%). Idiopathic ventricular fibrillation was diagnosed in 14 (10 men, 4 women; 45 +/- 11 years) of 21 patients who recovered spontaneous circulation. Five (6.1%) patients were discharged alive, and an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator was implanted in 2. Unexplained SCD is common in Korea and develops predominantly in middle-aged males around midnight or in the late morning usually with no prodromal symptoms (59.8%). Idiopathic ventricular fibrillation is thought to be one of the important causes.  (+info)

A genetic analysis of the Epworth Sleepiness Scale in 1560 World War II male veteran twins in the NAS-NRC Twin Registry. (3/299)

Responses to the eight-item Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) obtained from 1560 World War II male veteran twin pairs [818 monozygotic (MZ), 742 dizygotic (DZ)] were analysed to determine the extent to which genetic influences are involved in self-reported daytime sleepiness in the elderly. Average ESS score (+/- SD) in this sample was 7.1 +/- 3.9, range 0--24. More than half of the twins (65%--67%) reported a moderate to high chance of falling asleep while lying down to rest; fewer than 3% admitted that this would occur while sitting and talking to someone or while stopped in traffic. Daytime sleepiness was not associated with age but was significantly and positively associated with obesity. The intraclass twin correlation on ESS scores was 0.39 in MZ pairs and 0.21 in DZ pairs (both P < 0.001). Structural equation modeling of the observed variance-covariance matrices for MZ and DZ twins estimated the heritability of ESS to be 38% (95% confidence interval 33%--44%). Environmental influences not shared by twin brothers accounted for the remaining variance in daytime sleepiness. A reasonable interpretation of the heritability of ESS in this healthy cohort of elderly male twins is a genetic susceptibility for disordered breathing during sleep.  (+info)

Health-related quality of life in narcolepsy. (4/299)

Narcolepsy is a chronic sleep disorder characterised by symptoms of excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy. The aim of this study was to describe the health-related quality of life of people with narcolepsy residing in the UK. The study comprised a postal survey of 500 members of the UK narcolepsy patient association, which included amongst other questions the UK Short Form 36 (SF-36), the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and the Ullanlinna Narcolepsy Scale (UNS). A total of 305 questionnaires were included in the final analysis. The results showed that the subjects had significantly lower median scores on all eight domains of the SF-36 than normative data, and scored particularly poorly for the domains of role physical, energy/vitality, and social functioning. The BDI indicated that 56.9% of subjects had some degree of depression. In addition, many individuals described limitations on their education, home, work and social life caused by their symptoms. There was little difference between the groups receiving different types of medication. This study is the largest of its type in the UK, although the limitations of using a sample from a patient association have been recognised. The results are consistent with studies of narcolepsy in other countries in demonstrating the extensive impact of this disorder on health-related quality of life.  (+info)

Ecological degradation in protected areas: the case of Wolong Nature Reserve for giant pandas. (5/299)

It is generally perceived that biodiversity is better protected from human activities after an area is designated as a protected area. However, we found that this common perception was not true in Wolong Nature Reserve (southwestern China), which was established in 1975 as a "flagship" protected area for the world-renowned endangered giant pandas. Analyses of remote sensing data from pre- and post-establishment periods indicate that the reserve has become more fragmented and less suitable for giant panda habitation. The rate of loss of high-quality habitat after the reserve's establishment was much higher than before the reserve was created, and the fragmentation of high-quality habitat became far more severe. After the creation of the reserve, rates of habitat loss and fragmentation inside the reserve unexpectedly increased to levels that were similar to or higher than those outside the reserve, in contrast to the situation before the reserve was created.  (+info)

Differential effects of activity and climate on onset of subarachnoid hemorrhage. (6/299)

Conflicting findings of the effect of climate on onset of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) may result from the influence of strenuous activities which can trigger aneurysmal rupture independent of climatological factors. The effect of climate and patient activities on onset of SAH were analyzed. The clinical records of 786 consecutive patients with aneurysmal SAH admitted to our hospital for 10 years were reviewed. Activities at onset were categorized according to the intensity of strain at onset. Seasonal variation, circannual cyclic trend, and association with 90 meteorological factors were examined in each category and the results were compared between categories. Bimonthly occurrence in the light strain group showed a significant seasonal variation and cyclic trend with two peaks in early spring and fall, whereas no significant trend was detected in the overall patients and in the heavy strain group. The significant meteorological factors were global solar radiation, sunshine hours, changes in mean and minimum temperature and mean vapor pressure from the previous day, and minimum pressure in the previous 7 days. Lower global solar radiation in the light strain group was associated with onset with the lowest p value (p = 0.0046). No factors were significant in the heavy strain group. There is some evidence of the possible influence of climatological factors on onset of SAH without strenuous activity. Strenuous activity seems to affect onset more strongly, which masks any effect of climate.  (+info)

A multispecies overkill simulation of the end-Pleistocene megafaunal mass extinction. (7/299)

A computer simulation of North American end-Pleistocene human and large herbivore population dynamics correctly predicts the extinction or survival of 32 out of 41 prey species. Slow human population growth rates, random hunting, and low maximum hunting effort are assumed; additional parameters are based on published values. Predictions are close to observed values for overall extinction rates, human population densities, game consumption rates, and the temporal overlap of humans and extinct species. Results are robust to variation in unconstrained parameters. This fully mechanistic model accounts for megafaunal extinction without invoking climate change and secondary ecological effects.  (+info)

Energy costs of standard activities among Indian adults. (8/299)

OBJECTIVES: To estimate the energy cost of resting (RMR), sitting and standing for urban Indian adults and compare these estimates with the reported values. DESIGN: Energy costs were measured using oxylog while body fat was estimated using equipment (HBF300, OMRON Corporation, Japan) that works on the principle of bioelectrical impedance, for 24 men and 40 women, aged 20-50 y, engaged in sedentary activities. SETTINGS: Agharkar Research Institute, Pune, India. RESULTS: Mean energy cost (kJ/min) of resting (RMR), sitting and standing were significantly (P<0.01, for all) higher for men (4.01+/-0.42, 5.0+/-0.72 and 5.74+/-0.69, respectively) than women (3.54+/-0.28, 4.03+/-0.41 and 4.35+/-0.52, respectively). Gender difference increased with the level of activity, from 13% for RMR to 32% for standing. These differences reduced when adjusted (using analysis of covariance) for body weight and became non-significant on adjusting for fat-free mass (FFM) in the case of RMR and sitting activity. The measured values of energy cost (absolute and per kg weight) for these activities were similar to African subjects but lower compared to Asian or European subjects for both sexes. The stepwise regression analysis done separately by sexes showed weight (29%) in men and body mass index (44%) in women to be the best predictors of RMR, while regression analysis for combined sexes indicated FFM and height as predictors of RMR (r(2)=56%, P<0.01). If means to estimate body fat were not available, RMR could best be predicted with BMI and sex as predictors (r(2)=55%; P<0.01). This was mainly due to the fact that the sex differences in our population were more prominent in FFM than that in BMI. Our observations thus indicate the need to develop prediction equations separately for different populations owing to differences in their body compositions, especially in fat mass (FM) or FFM. CONCLUSION: The energy costs of activities were associated with body composition, especially with absolute fat-free mass, which may vary even with the same body fat percentage. Therefore, there is a need to develop separate prediction equations for different communities.  (+info)

Video-based human activity recognition (HAR) means the analysis of motions and behaviors of human from the low level sensors. Over the last decade, automatic HAR is an exigent research area and is considered a significant concern in the field of computer vision and pattern recognition. In this paper, we have presented a robust and an accurate activity recognition system called WS-HAR that consists of wavelet transform coupled with stepwise linear discriminant analysis (SWLDA) followed by hidden Markov model (HMM). Symlet wavelet has been employed in order to extract the features from the activity frames. The most prominent features were selected by proposing a robust technique called stepwise linear discriminant analysis (SWLDA) that focuses on selecting the localized features from the activity frames and discriminating their class based on regression values (i.e., partial F-test values). Finally, we applied a well-known sequential classifier called hidden Markov model (HMM) to give the appropriate

To recognize individual activities in multi-resident environments with pervasive sensors, some researchers have pointed out that finding data associations can contribute to activity recognition and previous methods either need or infer data association when recognizing new multi-resident activities based on new observations from sensors. However, it is often difficult to find out data associations, and available approaches to multi-resident activity recognition degrade when the data association is not given or induced with low accuracy. This paper exploits some simple knowledge of multi-resident activities through defining Combined label and the state set, and proposes a two-stage activity recognition method for multi-resident activity recognition. We define Combined label states at the model building phase with the help of data association, and learn Combined label states at the new activity recognition phase without the help of data association. Our two stages method is embodied in the new activity

Hamilton is under no illusions. We are in trouble. Now is not the time to be blind to the changes already set in motion within the Earth system: we are leaving behind the Holocene and entering into a new epoch for which there is no precedent. That earlier epoch was a time of relatively stable climate conditions that enabled human progress and the nurture of culture and civilisations. That time is going: the Anthropocene refers to a new age which bears the mark of human impact in such a way that humanity has become a force of nature just as much as volcanism, glaciation, and earthquakes.. How are we to live in this future without precedents? There are those who assume that the Anthropocene should be welcomed and interestingly endow a geologic era with a moral quality calling it the good Anthropocene. Through various forms of geo-engineering and invention we can manage this changing climate and a planetary Earth system which is responding defiantly to humanitys impact. There are others who ...

Humans are altering the planet, including long-term global geologic processes, at an increasing rate. Any formal recognition of an Anthropocene epoch in the geological time scale hinges onwhether humans have changed the Earth system sufficiently to produce a stratigraphic signature in sediments and ice that is distinct from that of the Holocene epoch. Proposals for marking the start of the Anthropocene include anearly Anthropocene beginning with the spread of agriculture and deforestation; the Columbian Exchange of Old World and New World species; the Industrial Revolution at ~1800 CE; and the mid-20th century Great Acceleration of population growth and industrialization.. ...

Its not often that an aging social movement gets a chance to redefine and reinvigorate itself. Environmentalism has that opportunity now, with the Anthropocene, which National Geographic has dubbed, The Age of Man. What does that mean? As I recently wrote in Slate, the Anthropocene represents a growing scientific consensus that the contemporary human footprint-our cities, suburban sprawl, dams, agriculture, greenhouse gases, etc.-has so massively transformed the planet as to usher in a new geological epoch.This sounds like The Age of Man is bad for humanity and the earth. But thats too simplistic. As The Economist noted in its 2011 cover story:The advent of the Anthropocene promises more, though, than a scientific nicety or a new way of grabbing the eco-jaded publics attention. The term
Plastic planet Photo credit: University of Leicester / Jonathan SissonA team of academics led by the University of Leicester has responded to criticisms of the proposal to formalize a new geological epoch-the Anthropocene.. Geological critics of a formalized Anthropocene have alleged that the idea did not arise from geology; that there is simply not enough physical evidence for it as strata; that it is based more on the future than on the past; that it is more a part of human history than the immensely long history of the Earth; and that it is a political statement, rather than a scientific one.. Members of the international Anthropocene Working Group, including professors Jan Zalasiewicz, Colin Waters, and Mark Williams of the University of Leicesters Department of Geology and Dr Matt Edgeworth of the Universitys School of Archaeology and Ancient History, have considered these various criticisms at length..

WASHINGTON, DC - Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-03), Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, today released the following statement after the House passed her FY2020 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, Appropriations bill by a vote of 297-120.
Dear Chairs Blunt and DeLauro and Ranking Members Murray and Cole:. On behalf of United for Medical Research (UMR), which represents leading scientific research institutions and industries, and health and patient advocates, we want to thank you for your steadfast leadership in supporting the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in annual appropriations, but also within the recent emergency enacted bills responding to the Coronavirus crisis.. As you and your Labor-HHS subcommittees resume the regular appropriations process, we urge you to include an increase of $3 billion in NIH funding for fiscal year 2021. As this pandemic demonstrates, this is no time to stall the momentum for medical research you have achieved over the past five years.. Download to read. ...
Critics of the idea of cultural appropriation dispute it on various grounds; from dismissal of the validity of the entire theory, to critiques of its detailed terms and concepts. Rejection is often based on the opposing view, that cultural borrowing and cross-fertilization as a generally positive thing, and as something which is usually done out of admiration, and with no intent to harm, the cultures being imitated.[23] It is also argued that the specific term appropriation, which can mean theft, is misleading when applied to something like culture that is not seen by all as a limited resource: unlike appropriating a physical object, others imitating an idea taken from one groups culture dont inherently deprive that originating group of its use.[23] For instance, John McWhorter, a professor at Columbia University and contributing editor at The New Republic, has written that, With gay white men and black women, for example, its not as if the black women are being left without their culture ...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies today approved a FY2018 appropriations bill to support critical housing, infrastructure and facilities for U.S. military forces and their families, and to provide increased funding for veterans health care and benefits..

At a House Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on March 28, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner again defended the Obama Administrations Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 budget and cautioned Republican leaders that cutting too much in their drive for savings will affect the ongoing economic recovery. During the hearing, Geithner said the U.S. will reach the debt limit at the end of this year. Geithner does not expect the President will have to request a raise in the debt ceiling before the election, and any advanced notice to Congress will come very late this year. In his testimony, Geithner spoke broadly on the U.S. economy saying its gradually getting stronger with an average growth rate of 2.5 percent over the last two years. However, we face significant economic challenges as effects from the crisis are still dampening growth, in addition to the ongoing housing and unemployment woes, Geithner said. On the Treasurys FY 2013 budget request, Geithner said it provides for greater investment in ...

This study examines the manner in which the House of Representatives has dealt with the appropriations of money. To that end I focused this research on two major areas: (1) the importance of factors external to Congress, and (2) internal factors, primarily membership and career patterns and the reasons for, and the results of changes by the House to the rules under which appropriations were made. The findings indicate that (1) in the absence of external factors such as major political realignments, or internal changes such as the move to decentralize in the 1885-1889 or recentralize in 1920, the Committee, and the entire process operates in a fairly predictable manner; (2) committee actions generally conform to the what one would expect if the norms of subcommittee autonomy, reciprocity, specialization and apprenticeship offered by Fenno (1966) are followed; (3) a change in party control is accompanied by non-incremental changes in the budget, especially during periods of political realignments; ...
With all this discussion going on in Canada about cultural appropriation going on in Canada, I wonder if Ill ever get a publisher to even consider my book. In case you dont know, and if youre in the U.S. you wont; there is a huge discussion under way in Canada about cultural appropriation with aboriginals saying dont steal our art, dont steal our voices, people resigning or getting reassigned from prominent editorial positions and even some First Nations writers arguing about who is

Human activity is leaving a pervasive and persistent signature on Earth. Vigorous debate continues about whether this warrants recognition as a new geologic time unit known as the Anthropocene. We review anthropogenic markers of functional changes in the Earth system through the stratigraphic record. The appearance of manufactured materials in sediments, including aluminum, plastics, and concrete, coincides with global spikes in fallout radionuclides and particulates from fossil fuel combustion. Carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus cycles have been substantially modified over the past century. Rates of sea-level rise and the extent of human perturbation of the climate system exceed Late Holocene changes. Biotic changes include species invasions worldwide and accelerating rates of extinction. These combined signals render the Anthropocene stratigraphically distinct from the Holocene and earlier epochs. ...

A number of factors have been suggested as affecting reproductive success in gulls. In this study we have attempted to isolate the effect of human disturbance on breeding success. We held other factors such as age of birds, terrain, and density of colony as constant as was practicable with a varied colony environment. There have been several previous discussions of the possible effect of human disturbance on the breeding success of birds. However, no study has documented this effect with controls. Reid (1968) found that in the Adélie Penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) banding and close observation during seven summers caused the breeding populations in six colonies to decrease by more than 90%. Nelson (1966), commenting on nests on the fringe of colonies, stated that their lower success rates did not take full account of artifacts introduced by human disturbance. Working with the Sooty Tern (Sterna fuscata), Ashmole (1963:324) said that mortality caused by the pecking of chicks by adults was ...

Description: Federally supported child nutrition programs and related activities - including school meal programs and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (the WIC program) - reach over 37 million children and almost 2 million lower-income pregnant/postpartum women. In FY2004, anticipated spending on these programs is $16.6 billion, and the FY2004 appropriations law (P.L. 108-199) supports this spending level (although with new appropriations of a lesser amount, some $16 billion). The Administrations FY2005 revised budget request envisions spending a total of $17.15 billion, supported by new appropriations of $16.47 billion. The House FY2005 appropriations bill (H.R. 4766) would support spending of $16.97 billion with new appropriations of $16.29 billion. ...
Geologists reframing of the global changes arising from human impacts can be used to consider how the insights from environmental economics inform policy under this new perspective. They ask a rhetorical question. How would a future generation looking back at the records in the sediments and ice cores from todays activities judge mankinds impact? They conclude that the globe has entered a new epoch, the Anthropocene. Now mankind is the driving force altering the Earths natural systems. This conclusion, linking a physical record to a temporal one, represents an assessment of the extent of current human impact on global systems in a way that provides a warning that all policy design and evaluation must acknowledge that the impacts of human activity are taking place on a planetary scale. As a result, it is argued that national and international environmental policies need to be reconsidered. Environmental economics considers the interaction between people and natural systems. So it comes squarely into
Human impact on the environment or anthropogenic impact on the environment includes changes to biophysical environments and ecosystems, biodiversity, and natural resources caused directly or indirectly by humans, including global warming, environmental degradation (such as ocean acidification), mass extinction and biodiversity loss, ecological crises, and ecological collapse. Modifying the environment to fit the needs of society is causing bad effects, which become worse as the problem of human overpopulation continues. Some human activities that cause damage (either directly or indirectly) to the environment on a global scale include human reproduction, overconsumption, overexploitation, pollution, and deforestation, to name but a few. Some of the problems, including global warming and biodiversity loss pose an existential risk to the human race, and overpopulation causes those problems. The term anthropogenic designates an effect or object resulting from human activity. The term was first used ...
The human impact on the oceans, atmosphere, and life itself on this planet is so massive that it defines a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene.. During my PUBlic Professor talk Ill review the disquieting evidence for this claim and explore its philosophical and practical implications, both good and bad, for Alberta.. As the world moves rapidly into the new, non-carbon economy it will be possible for our province to create a sustainable prosperity that is not dependent upon cash flow from the sale of dwindling natural resources. But Albertans have to be willing to see the big picture. We cannot hope to continue business as usual in isolation from the powerful environmental factors that are shaping our world today.

Washington, D.C. - Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 4373 - Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2022 and H.R. 4346 - Legislative Branch Appropriations Act, 2022. These bills comprise the first round of fiscal year 2022 appropriations bills. Today, House Democrats cast our first round of funding votes in what is one of the most direct actions we as congressmembers can take to stand up for what we value as a nation, said Rep. Huffman. Through these bills, we are rebuilding public health infrastructure, taking action on climate change, and advancing womens rights - all of which will have a significant effect on the health and lives of people everywhere. This was a great first step, and Im looking forward to passing additional appropriations bills that reflect the priorities of the people we represent.

Friends in Tobacco Control - WE NEED YOUR HELP! Cigar manufacturers and retailers are continuing to push to have language added to the Agriculture/FDA appropriations bill that would exclude many types of cigars from regulation by the FDA. We think they are pushing language similar to H.R. 1639, a bill that would exempt many cigars from FDA oversight. The industry has been lobbying hard on H.R. 1639 and the bill continues to pick-up co-sponsors.. We believe the House Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee could take up the funding bill next Wednesday, June 6th. Action in the full Appropriations Committee would take place shortly after the Subcommittee acts.. We need your help to send the message to members of the House Appropriations Committee to oppose any effort to weaken FDAs authority to regulate tobacco products.. Given that members are hearing from the tobacco industry it is critical that members of Congress hear about this issue from the public health community. If your Representative is ...

SJR 12 - This constitutional amendment, if approved by the voters, prohibits the total state general revenue appropriations for any fiscal year, as defined in the amendment, from exceeding the level from the previous fiscal year, allowing for growth in an amount equal to the annual rate of inflation plus the annual percentage change in state population. Total state general revenue appropriations may exceed the previous fiscal years amount only under certain conditions, as described in the act.. For any fiscal year in which net general revenue collections exceed total state general revenue appropriations by more than one percent of total state general revenue appropriations, the lowest state income tax rate in effect shall be permanently eliminated. Such elimination shall not occur if there is a single income tax rate in effect.. For each fiscal year after the fiscal year in which the final rate elimination has occurred, the Commissioner of Administration shall record the amount by which net ...
Links End --------------------> Washington, July 9, 2013 - The House Appropriations Committee today released the fiscal year 2014 Commerce, Justice, Science (CJS) Appropriations bill, which will be considered in subcommittee tomorrow. The bill funds the Department of Commerce, the Department of Justice, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and other related agencies. In total, the legislation contains $47.4 billion in total funding. This is $2.8 billion below the fiscal year 2013 enacted level and $350 million below the level caused by automatic sequestration budget cuts. This legislation targets taxpayer dollars to federal law enforcement and safety programs, ensuring that essential functions of the federal government - protecting the life, liberty, and property of our citizens - are maintained. In addition, the bill supports commerce and research programs to increase our nations competitiveness and help the economy continue to move ...

We review the scientific literature, especially from the past decade, on the impacts of human activities on the Antarctic environment. A range of impacts has been identified at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. Chemical contamination and sewage disposal on the continent have been found to be long-lived. Contemporary sewage management practices at many coastal stations are insufficient to prevent local contamination but no introduction of non-indigenous organisms through this route has yet been demonstrated. Human activities, particularly construction and transport, have led to disturbances of flora and fauna. A small number of non-indigenous plant and animal species has become established, mostly on the northern Antarctic Peninsula and southern archipelagos of the Scotia Arc. There is little indication of recovery of overexploited fish stocks, and ramifications of fishing activity on bycatch species and the ecosystem could also be far-reaching. The Antarctic Treaty System and its ...

Ag Appropriations Bill Includes Problematic Amendments. Washington--The full House is expected to take up the fiscal year 2012 agricultural appropriations bill as early as next week. The version passed last week by the House Appropriations Committee includes several provisions AFBF considers problematic. Among them is an amendment to lower the adjusted gross income test to $250,000, limiting farm program payments to producers. Farm Bureau policy opposes means testing for government farm programs. Another is an amendment to secure the $147 million annual payment to Brazil under the U.S. settlement of the World Trade Organization cotton case from cuts in the cotton direct payment program. A third is an amendment that prohibits any agricultural appropriations from being used to make payments under the U.S. settlement with Brazil and uses the savings of that $147 million in the cotton case to fund the Women, Infants and Childrens program.

Your advocacy has made an impact.. Congress has directed the Department of Health and Human Services to disseminate the Pain Management Best Practices Report to providers and create a public awareness campaign about pain via the House Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Committee Report accompanying the FY 2021 Budget Bill!. The report includes language we requested in our official appropriations submissions. (The language, with key sections underlined, is below.) Also included is our request to collect and report data on the prevalence of pain and various pain syndromes annually.. It is likely that last months Virtual Advocacy Day, and your outreach to legislators, helped make the case for improving the treatment of pain nationwide.. While the language is not absolutely binding, it does tell agency heads what Congress expects them to do. We will be watching and reporting whether these critical activities are accomplished!. Thanks for your efforts!. From the House Labor, Health and ...
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES. NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Request. Statement for the Record for the House Subcommittee on Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations.

The US Department of Defense is seeking $4 million dedicated to research efforts on melanoma and other skin cancers, which it claims is a danger facing many military personnel. As part of the Fiscal 2009 Department of Defense Appropriations Conference Report, the House of Representatives is currently considering the measure.. The Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF), a national organization, made the announcement last week. With more than 140,000 personnel currently stationed in Iraq, the intensity of sun exposure puts our men and women at long-term risk for melanoma-the most serious form of skin cancer and one of the fastest-growing cancers in the US, said Randy Lomax, chairman of the Melanoma Research Foundation. By specifically including melanoma in its peer-reviewed cancer research program-as it does with breast, prostate, and ovarian cancers-the Department of Defense recognizes the scope of this very serious problem facing our troops.. Increased funding, especially at the federal levels, ...
The Senate Appropriations Committee, which is chaired by State Sen. Dan Hegeman, R-Cosby, is scheduled to meet Tuesday morning and every morning through Friday to discuss the budget.. The Missouri House voted in late March to approve a $29.2 billion state operating budget, which includes a $100 million transportation infrastructure plan. House Budget Committee Chairman Cody Smith, R-Carthage, says its the first time in recent history that general revenue would be used to fund roads and bridges.. The Houses budget also includes an $8 million retention pay plan aimed at wage increases for Missouri Department of Corrections (DOC) staff.. Governor Mike Parson has said the DOCs 11,000 employees are among the nations lowest-paid corrections professionals.. Under the House budget, DOC employees would receive the three percent pay increase all state workers would get. They would also receive a one percent increase for every two years of continuous DOC employment, up to 20 years.. Once the Senate ...

Introducing Mobile Technology for Enhancing Chronic Pain Studies: Appropriation of A Smartphone-Based Ecological Momentary Assessment Method for Low Back Pain Data Collection
The most amusing face-saving deflection was offered by Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) who said he will continue to review options as the current appropriations process moves forward.. Thats incredibly funny because there is no appropriations process.. Moreover, Republicans have not completed the appropriations process in years. The federal government is currently funded by a continuing resolution of the fiscal 2016 budget signed by President Obama which was more or less a continuance of the fiscal 2015 budget. Federal spending has been almost static for several years.. The last time Republicans attempted to complete the appropriations process, they called the whole thing off to avoid holding a vote on displaying the Confederate flag at federal cemeteries. ...

The present work is devoted to the study of broad physiological and ecological characteris- tics of anthropophytic species on the high step- pe lands of the Tlemcen region. The bioclimatic analysis confirms the development of drought in this region with a dominance of spiny and/or toxic asylvatic: plant species of shrub and her- baceous size species. We used correspondence factor analysis (CFA) of the various factors causing degradation to better understand the complexity of this ecosystem, whose floristic composition was complemented by means of soil measurements (spectrum green/ecological spectrum). This analysis allowed us to identify five groups of anthropophytic species with in this highly degraded matorral. We show that this ecosystem is already showing symptoms of de-gradation, and propose a preservation policy for protecting ensuring the survival of native species under threat from human activities.
The potential of human activities, including research, to alter parasite transmission ecology in wildlife is unknown. We examined gastrointestinal parasitism in chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) in Budongo Forest, Uganda. Trail use and time spent on the ground was recorded during 10 months of observations in four sites with differing human disturbance. Disturbance was quantified using transect plots (n = 320). Fecal (n = 435) samples were examined for helminth eggs, larvae, and for protozoan cysts. Individuals that spent more time on the ground had more infections and higher intensity infections. Prevalence of 13 parasite species was similar across sites, but percentage of multiple infections and infection intensity differed, as did ground use. Chimpanzees at the long-term research site spent more time on the ground or on human trails. We hypothesize that researcher presence and trail creation may influence ground use, and thereby parasite burden, by altering trade-offs between foraging and
It is the unprecedented impact of anthropogenic climate change that has, perhaps, played the biggest role in efforts to define the Anthropocene as a distinctive new era in Earths history. Multiple warnings backed by a global consensus of climate scientists have warned over the last few decades that human activities, through the escalating consumption of fossil fuel resources - the burning of oil, gas and coal - is destabilising the Earths natural carbon cycle.. For hundreds of thousands of years, the planet has sustained an equilibrium, a safe operating space offering an optimum environment for human and other habitation - in which the quantity of carbon emitted and absorbed by planetary ecosystems remains stable.. But since the Industrial Revolution, as human civilisation has inexorably expanded, consuming greater quantities of fossil fuel energy along the way, associated carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have exponentially increased - overwhelming the planets capacity for absorption. The ...
CATTLE DECAPITATION is one of THE best bands I have ever listened to. Their sound is so raw and just heavy as hell. Their work is evil, and they have improved so much over the years. Every new album is an improvement, and much better than the last. Their newest release The Anthropocene Extinction most definitely makes that statement true. This album contains some of the absolute best work Ive heard from them; its really intoxicating, the more I listen, the more stuck to it I become. CATTLE DECAPITATION is a band that will never get old, and I can never stop listening. I cant say enough about this album.. This release is one that just has to be listened to all the way through; it tells a story. The intro Manufactured Extinct is awesome to say the least. The guitars rip in with an evil slow riff, then speeds up for the vocals to enter. This track really fits the album title. Its dark and you can just feel the extinction. Travis Ryans vocals are phenomenal in this song, and across the whole ...

The explosive growth of video content in recent years fueled by the technological leaps in computing and communication has created new challenges for video content analysis that can serve applications in video surveillance, video searching and mining. Human action detection and recognition is one of the important tasks in this effort. In this paper, we present a luminance field manifold trajectory analysis based solution for human activity recognition, without explicit object level information extraction and understanding. This approach is computationally efficient and can operate in real time. The recognition performance is also comparable with the state of art in comparable set ups. Copyright 2008 ACM ...
email protected] WASHINGTON - The Senate Appropriations Committee yesterday approved its fiscal year (FY) 2018 Agriculture Appropriations Bill, which will guide funding for programs that support American agriculture, conservation, and nutrition programs.. The bill allocates $145.4 billion in discretionary and mandatory funding and includes provisions for cotton and dairy producers, both of whom have faced challenging economic circumstances in recent years. Specifically, the bill allows cotton producers to participate in the Price Loss Coverage (PLC) program and reforms aspects of the Dairy Margin Protection Program (DMPP), which has failed to adequately support struggling dairy producers..

With the ink barely dry on the new food safety law, the fight over whether to fund the Food and Drug Administrations new mandate is in full swing. Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA), the new chair of the appropriations subcommittee overseeing the budgets for FDA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is still seriously questioning whether the new law deserves funding, considering the national debt that is spiraling out of control.

While charts and many fans and music scholars alike call Thickes music R&B, others need more labeling. They need to categorize him further, placing him into the sub- genre of Blue-eyed soul. Blue-eyed soul developed in the Southern United States during the 1960s when white males began performing typically black male music because segregation laws prohibiting blacks to perform in white venues (Amorosi).

In the 60s it was no longer just the appropriation of the songs, but it was the appropriation of the lyrics of soul and rhythm and blues.

Robin Thickes music is often labeled as blue-eyed soul, but he repeatedly tells press that he does not want to ...

Occasionally, you might find seemingly injured animals in the garden, such as stunned birds that have flown into a window or nocturnal creatures like grounded bats or hedgehogs that are out during day time. Before doing anything, inform yourself and make sure the animal really needs help.
