The collective name for islands of the Pacific Ocean east of the Philippines, including the Mariana, PALAU, Caroline, Marshall, and Kiribati Islands. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p761 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p350)
A republic consisting of a group of about 100 islands and islets in the western Pacific Ocean. Its capital is Koror. Under Spain it was administered as a part of the Caroline Islands but was sold to Germany in 1899. Seized by Japan in 1914, it was taken by the Allies in World War II in 1944. In 1947 it became part of the U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, became internally self-governing in 1980, obtained independent control over its foreign policy (except defense) in 1986, and achieved total independence October 1, 1994. (Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p915; telephone communication with Randy Flynn, Board on Geographic Names, 17 January 1995)
The organization and administration of health services dedicated to the delivery of health care.
An archipelago in Polynesia in the southwest Pacific Ocean, comprising about 150 islands. It is a kingdom whose capital is Nukualofa. It was discovered by the Dutch in 1616, visited by Tasman in 1643, and by Captain Cook in 1773 and 1777. The modern kingdom was established during the reign of King George Tupou I, 1845-93. It became a British protectorate in 1900 and gained independence in 1970. The name Tonga may be of local origin, meaning either island or holy. Its other name, Friendly Islands, was given by Captain Cook from the welcome given him by the natives.

Homozygosity mapping of the Achromatopsia locus in the Pingelapese. (1/130)

Achromatopsia, or total color blindness (also referred to as "rod monochromacy"), is a severe retinal disorder characterized clinically by an inability to distinguish colors, impaired visual acuity in daylight, photophobia, and nystagmus. Inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, achromatopsia is rare in the general population (1:20,000-1:50,000). Among the Pingelapese people of the Eastern Caroline Islands, however, the disorder occurs at an extremely high frequency, as recounted in Oliver Sacks's popular book The Island of the Colorblind: 4%-10% of this island population have the disorder and approximately 30% carry the gene. This extraordinary enrichment of the disease allele most likely resulted from a sharp reduction in population in the late 18th century, in the aftermath of a typhoon and subsequent geographic and cultural isolation. To obtain insights into the genetic basis of achromatopsia, as well as into the genetic history of this region of Micronesia, a genomewide search for linkage was performed in three Pingelapese kindreds with achromatopsia. A two-step search was used with a DNA pooling strategy, followed by genotyping of individual family members. Genetic markers that displayed a shift toward homozygosity in the affected DNA pool were used to genotype individual members of the kindreds, and an achromatopsia locus was identified on 8q21-q22. A maximal multipoint LOD score of 9.5 was observed with marker D8S1707. Homozygosity was seen for three adjacent markers (D8S275, D8S1119, and D8S1707), whereas recombination was observed with the flanking markers D8S1757 and D8S270, defining the outer boundaries of the disease-gene locus that spans a distance of <6.5cM.  (+info)

Thyroid nodules, thyroid function and dietary iodine in the Marshall islands. (2/130)

BACKGROUND: Thyroid nodules have been found to be common in the population of the Marshall Islands. This has been attributed to potential exposure of radioiodines from the nuclear weapons tests on Bikini and Eniwetok between 1946 and 1958. METHODS: In order to get a full picture of thyroid pathology in the Marshallese population potentially exposed to radioactive fallout we performed a large thyroid screening programme using palpation, high resolution ultrasound and fine needle biopsies of palpable nodules. In addition, various parameters of thyroid function (free T3, free T4, thyroid stimulating hormone [TSH]) and anti-thyroid antibodies were examined in large proportions of the total population at risk. Since dietary iodine deficiency is an established risk factor for thyroid nodules, iodine concentration in urine samples of 362 adults and 119 children was measured as well as the iodine content of selected staple food products. RESULTS: The expected high prevalence of thyroid nodules was confirmed. There was no indication of an increased rate of impaired thyroid function in the Marshallese population. A moderate degree of iodine deficiency was found which may be responsible for some of the increased prevalence of thyroid nodules in the Marshallese population. CONCLUSIONS: Studies on the relationship between exposure to radioiodines and thyroid nodules need to take dietary iodine deficiency into account in the interpretation of findings.  (+info)

A progress report of the Marshall Islands nationwide thyroid study: an international cooperative scientific study. (3/130)

The objective of this report is to present a summary of progress of the Marshall Islands Nationwide Thyroid Study. As well known, the US atomic weapons testing program in the Pacific was conducted primarily between 1946 and 1958 in the Marshall Islands. The nuclear tests resulted in radioactive contamination of a number of atolls and resulted in exposure of Marshallese to undefined levels before our study. Little information has been paid to health consequences among residents of the nearly twenty inhibited atolls except for some information about nodular thyroid disease which was reported on by an US group. In a cooperative agreement with the Government of the Marshall Islands, between 1993 and 1997 we studied the prevalence of both thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer among 4766 Marshallese potentially exposed to radioiodines from bomb test fallout. That group represents more than 65% of the population at risk. We diagnosed 45 thyroid cancers and 1398 benign thyroid nodules. In addition, 23 study participants had been operated on prior to our study for thyroid cancer. Presently, we are developing a database of information to estimate radiation doses and planning a statistical analysis to determine if a dose-response relationship exists. These data will be important for the health promotion of exposed people all over the world including Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Semipalatinsk, Chernobyl and other locations. A timely completion is important for purpose of assisting Marshallese as well as to add the global understanding of radiation induced thyroid cancer.  (+info)

Short tandem-repeat polymorphism/alu haplotype variation at the PLAT locus: implications for modern human origins. (4/130)

Two dinucleotide short tandem-repeat polymorphisms (STRPs) and a polymorphic Alu element spanning a 22-kb region of the PLAT locus on chromosome 8p12-q11.2 were typed in 1,287-1,420 individuals originating from 30 geographically diverse human populations, as well as in 29 great apes. These data were analyzed as haplotypes consisting of each of the dinucleotide repeats and the flanking Alu insertion/deletion polymorphism. The global pattern of STRP/Alu haplotype variation and linkage disequilibrium (LD) is informative for the reconstruction of human evolutionary history. Sub-Saharan African populations have high levels of haplotype diversity within and between populations, relative to non-Africans, and have highly divergent patterns of LD. Non-African populations have both a subset of the haplotype diversity present in Africa and a distinct pattern of LD. The pattern of haplotype variation and LD observed at the PLAT locus suggests a recent common ancestry of non-African populations, from a small population originating in eastern Africa. These data indicate that, throughout much of modern human history, sub-Saharan Africa has maintained both a large effective population size and a high level of population substructure. Additionally, Papua New Guinean and Micronesian populations have rare haplotypes observed otherwise only in African populations, suggesting ancient gene flow from Africa into Papua New Guinea, as well as gene flow between Melanesian and Micronesian populations.  (+info)

Effects of chewing betel nut (Areca catechu) on the symptoms of people with schizophrenia in Palau, Micronesia. (5/130)

BACKGROUND: Although millions of people with schizophrenia live in betel chewing regions, the effects of betel chewing on their symptoms are unknown. Betel nut alkaloids include potent muscarinic cholinomimetics: recent research suggests that these agents may be therapeutic in schizophrenia. AIMS: To compare the primary and extrapyramidal symptom profiles and substance-using habits of betel chewing v. non-chewing people with schizophrenia. METHOD: A cross-sectional study of 70 people with schizophrenia. Symptom ratings measured by the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) and Extrapyramidal Symptom Rating Scale (ESRS), and demographic and substance-use data, were compared for 40 chewers and 30 non-chewers of betel nut. RESULTS: Betel chewers with schizophrenia scored significantly lower on the positive (P = 0.001) and negative (P = 0.002) sub-scales of the PANSS than did non-chewers. There were no significant differences in extrapyramidal symptoms or tardive dyskinesia. CONCLUSIONS: Betel chewing is associated with milder symptomatology and avoidance of more harmful recreational drugs. These initial results indicate that longitudinal research is merited.  (+info)

Epidemiology and factor analysis of obesity, type II diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia (syndrome X) on the Island of Kosrae, Federated States of Micronesia. (6/130)

OBJECTIVES: Obesity, type II diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia are major causes of morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Though these disorders often cluster in individuals and families and are collectively known as syndrome X, the basis for this aggregation is not well understood. To further understand the pathogenesis of syndrome X, a comprehensive epidemiological study was undertaken on the Pacific Island of Kosrae, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). METHODS: The entire adult (>20 years of age) population of Kosrae underwent a clinical evaluation that included a questionnaire that noted the participants' sex, family data including listing of biological parents, siblings, and children, smoking status, village of residence, age and health status. The medical evaluation included: anthropometric measures (weight, height, waist, hip), serum chemistries (leptin, fasting blood sugar (FBS), insulin, total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), and apolipoproteins B and A-I (apo B and apo A-I) and blood pressure (BP) measurements. RESULTS: Obesity (BMI >/=35) was found in 24%, diabetes (FBS >/=126 or 2-hour oral glucose tolerance test >/=200) in 12%, hypertension (SBP >/=140 or DBP >/=90) in 17%, and dyslipidemia (TC >/=240 or TG >/=200 or apo B >/=120 or apo A-I +info)

Retinol binding protein as a surrogate measure for serum retinol: studies in vitamin A-deficient children from the Republic of the Marshall Islands. (7/130)

BACKGROUND: Serum retinol is transported by retinol binding protein (RBP), which has one high-affinity binding site for retinol; consequently, the molar ratio of retinol to RBP in the circulation is approximately 1 to 1. In vitamin A deficiency (VAD), both serum retinol and RBP decline. However, the retinol-RBP relation has not been well studied in populations with a high incidence of severe VAD. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether RBP is a good surrogate for serum retinol at the very low retinol concentrations encountered in VAD. DESIGN: The stoichiometric relation between retinol and RBP was studied in 239 Marshallese children: 65 with severe VAD (< or = 0.35 micromol retinol/L), 94 with moderate VAD (0.36-0.70 micromol retinol/L), and 80 with vitamin A sufficiency (> 0.70 micromol retinol/L). RESULTS: Excellent correlation between retinol and RBP (r = 0.94) was observed across all retinol concentrations. Severe VAD was predicted with 96% sensitivity and 91% specificity on the basis of an RBP cutoff of < or = 0.48 micromol/L, whereas moderate VAD was predicted with 87% sensitivity and 98% specificity on the basis of an RBP cutoff of < or = 0.70 micromol/L. CONCLUSIONS: The use of RBP results in the classification of essentially the same children with VAD as does retinol, and RBP is an excellent surrogate for serum retinol. Considering the relative ease of measuring RBP with immunodiagnostic kits compared with that of serum retinol by HPLC, the use of RBP concentrations to assess VAD may be particularly advantageous in field settings. Consequently, measuring RBP concentrations may be a practical alternative to measuring serum retinol in population surveys assessing the prevalence of VAD.  (+info)

Vitamin A deficiency among children--Federated States of Micronesia, 2000. (8/130)

Vitamin A, a fat-soluble, heat-stable nutrient (retinol) derived from animal sources and certain fruits and vegetables, forms the basic component of retinal pigments and plays a vital role in optimal health, growth, and development. Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) (serum retinol < or = 20 microg/dL [< or = 0.7 micromol/L] for subclinical VAD) can substantially increase the risk for childhood mortality from infectious and noninfectious causes. VAD impairs the mobilization and transport of iron and is usually associated with anemia and reduced growth. VAD is a major public health problem in parts of Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Western Pacific. In Chuuk and Pohnpei, two of the four Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) (2000 population: 107,008), nutrition surveys during the early 1990s documented VAD prevalences among the highest in the world (CDC, unpublished data, 1991; U.S. Public Health Service, unpublished data, 1994). In response to these findings, FSM health authorities, with support of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), began distributing vitamin A supplements in 1993 and 1998 in Chuuk and Pohnpei, respectively. In November 1999, FSM requested assistance from CDC in VAD assessment surveys of children in Kosrae and Yap, the other two FSM states. This report summarizes levels of serum retinol and prevalence of VAD and other indicators of nutritional status among children aged 24-59 months in Kosrae and Yap. The findings indicated low serum retinol levels and high VAD prevalences but no substantial stunting or wasting. A comprehensive, long-term national strategy is needed in FSM to promote sustained improvement in vitamin A status.  (+info)

Micronesia, officially the Federated States of Micronesia, is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean, northeast of Papua New Guinea. The country is a sovereign state in free association with the United States. The capital city of Federated States of Micronesia is Palikir. The Federated States of Micronesia were formerly part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, a United Nations Trust Territory under US administration. In 1979, they adopted a constitution, and in 1986 independence was attained under a Compact of Free Association with the United States. Present concerns include large-scale unemployment, overfishing, and overdependence on U.S. aid. The Federated States of Micronesia is hundreds of small islands divided in seven territories in Micronesia. The term Micronesia may mean the Federated States or to the region as a whole. This area is in Oceania. ...
The red land crab Gecarcoidea natalis (Pocock 1888) is endemic to Christmas Island, Indian Ocean, where it inhabits the rainforest, often more than 200 m above and 5 km distant from the ocean (e.g. Green, 1997; Adamczewska and Morris, 2001a). In common with other gecarcinid crabs, G. natalis undertakes an annual breeding migration but this is a significantly longer trek to the ocean for this crab than for most other gecarcinids. Consequently, G. natalis exhibits seasonally dichotomous behaviour and during the dry season these crabs are mostly quiescent within their burrows to avoid desiccation (Green, 1993; Green, 1997). However, within hours of the first monsoonal rain at the start of the wet season the crabs may walk over 1 km day−1 on their migration to the coast (e.g. Adamczewska and Morris, 2001a). Furthermore, since these breeding activities are synchronised with the lunar cycle the migrating red crabs must in some years sustain locomotion for up to 12 h day−1 during 5-6 consecutive ...

The authors documented gross and microscopic morphology of lesions in corals on 7 islands spanning western, southern, and eastern Micronesia, sampling 76 colonies comprising 30 species of corals among 18 genera, with Acropora, Porites, and Montipora dominating. Tissue loss comprised the majority of gross lesions sampled (41%), followed by discoloration (30%) and growth anomaly (29%). Of 31 cases of tissue loss, most lesions were subacute (48%), followed by acute and chronic (26% each). Of 23 samples with discoloration, most were dark discoloration (40%), with bleaching and other discoloration each constituting 30%. Of 22 growth anomalies, umbonate growth anomalies composed half, with exophytic, nodular, and rugose growth anomalies composing the remainder. On histopathology, for 9 cases of dark discoloration, fungal infections predominated (77%); for 7 bleached corals, depletion of zooxanthellae from the gastrodermis made up a majority of microscopic diagnoses (57%); and for growth anomalies other than

Effects of Immigration. The burden of TB disease in Hawaii is primarily among foreign-born persons from Asia and the U.S.-affiliated Pacific Islands. Persons from these TB endemic countries continue to immigrate and migrate to Hawaii with many immigrants arriving with active TB disease and latent TB infection (LTBI), impacting TB morbidity. Screening of foreign-born clients in state TB clinics in Hawaii in 2015 found that 20% had LTBI. If left untreated, these clients may be the TB cases of the future.. In 2015, 109 new TB cases, representing 86% of the states morbidity, were foreign-born. Among the foreign-born cases, the majority (63%) were born in the Philippines, followed by persons born in the Federated States of Micronesia (13%), Republic of the Marshall Islands (7%), Vietnam (5%), and China (3%). Note that the CDC counts persons born in the U.S. territories (i.e., Guam, American Samoa and Puerto Rico) and the Freely Associated States (i.e., Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of the ...

The most complicated problem, scientists say, is that no one knows exactly how much of a population must be sick and recover to create herd immunity. The Zika virus moves quickly, suggesting that immunity would build quickly. Yap Island, in Micronesia, had a 2007 Zika outbreak that lasted less than six months but infected 73 percent of the population, presumably immunizing all of them. Other Pacific Island outbreaks petered out in five to eight months, suggesting a tipping point had been reached.. After first being discovered in Uganda in 1947, the Zika virus seemed to disappear. For more than half a century there were no confirmed outbreaks of Zika, and only 14 confirmed human cases. Then, in 2007, Zika appeared on the island of Yap and nearby islands in Micronesia, 800 miles east of the Philippines, where nearly 50 people had been infected. Six years later, it showed up in French Polynesia, 5,000 miles to the southeast, where thousands contracted the virus. Today, its conceivable that more ...
The architecture of natural variation present in a contemporary population is a result of multiple population genetic forces, including population bottleneck and expansion, selection, drift, and admixture. We seek to untangle the contribution of admixture to genetic diversity on the Micronesian island of Kosrae. Toward this goal, we used a complete genetic approach by combining a dense genome-wide map of 100 000 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with data from uniparental markers from the mitochondrial genome and the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome. These markers were typed in 3200 individuals from Kosrae, representing 80% of the adult population of the island. We developed novel software that uses SNP data to delineate ancestry for individual segments of the genome. Through this analysis, we determined that 39% of Kosraens have some European ancestry. However, the vast majority of admixed individuals (77%) have European alleles spanning less than 10% of their genomes. Data from ...
Forested wetlands dominated by Terminalia carolinensis are endemic to Micronesia but common only on the island of Kosrae, Federated States of Micronesia. On Kosrae, these forests occur on Nansepsep, Inkosr, and Sonahnpil soil types, which differ in degree of flooding and soil saturation. We compared forest structure, growth, nutrition, and regeneration on two sites each on Nansepsep and Inkosr soils and one site on the much less common Sonahnpil soil type. Terminalia tree sizes were similar on all three soil types, but forests differed in total basal area, species of smaller trees, and total plant species diversity. Terminalia regeneration was found only on the Inkosr soil type, which had the highest water table levels. Other Terminalia species are relatively light demanding, and T. carolinensis exhibited similar characteristics. It is therefore likely that Terminalia requires periodic, but perhaps naturally rare, stand-replacing disturbances (e.g., typhoons) in order to maintain its dominanace, except.
We went to breakfast with the other Sr. couples, and of course Janice ( sorry Sam, we went without you, you were on beautiful Kosrae). We went to a place called The Villages, it is a Hotel/Restaurant on the Island. At The Villages you can rent a little bungalow on the beach, or up in the Jungle. It is a beautiful place. We had Fresh Tuna omelets ( I know they dont sound very good, but OH BABY, they are delicious) and we had fresh pineapple. It was nice to just sit and visit and eat good food, the surroundings are beautiful, I still cant believe we live in such a beautiful place. Enjoy the scenery !!!!!! ...
We had the opportunity of teaching seiminary in Nett (Netch). What a sweet experience. Elder and Sister Kjar had to leave for Guam a couple of days early so we got to teach the seminary. We taught with Elder Davis and Elder Gasu. They took the first half of the lesson on Judges ( We are studying the Old Testament in Seminary and Institute) and did a great job and then I got to teach Ruth. I love the book of Ruth, so it was a sweet experience to teach a story from the scriptures that I love so much. Our Students in Nett are all ages, we have the regular teenagers (ages 12 - 18) and then a lot of the adults in the community come also. There comments when ask a question are so inspiring. I loved teaching Ruth because one of the lessons we learn from Ruth is how important it is we take care of each other, and expecially the ageing and widows. In Netts, these wonderful people live the book of Ruth everyday. They are always watching out for each other and taking care of each other. They also have all ...
The India-Pacific Islands Developing States (PSIDS) Leaders Meeting was held on 24th September 2019 in New York on the sidelines of the 74th UNGA.

On June 19, 2010 the NMI earned a 1-1 draw with neighbor Guam in the 2010 Marianas Cup.[2] The match ended in a draw as there was insufficient lighting to continue the match after the end of regulation. Joe Wang Miller scored for the NMI in the 68th minute and Jason Cunliffe answered in the 89th minute to salvage a draw for Guam. Despite the efforts of the NMIFA, delays in decision making around whether the 2011 Pacific Games football tournament would double up as a FIFA World Cup qualifying event meant that the national team were unable to enter.[17] As a result, no games were played for the next two years until July 2012 when The Blue Ayuyus entered the 2013 EAFF East Asian Cup First Preliminary Round, hosted again by Guam.[18] New coach Chikashi Suzuki was conscious of the need to snap the losing run of matches against Guam, had recognised that previous squads had contained a large number of veteran players and called up a number of younger players such as Lucas Knecht and Bo Barry who were ...

To the Editor: Zika virus (ZIKV) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus related to yellow fever virus, dengue virus (DENV), and West Nile virus (WNV). It is a single-stranded positive RNA virus (10,794-nt genome) that is closely related to the Spondweni virus and is transmitted by many Aedes spp. mosquitoes, including Ae. africanus, Ae. luteocephalus, Ae. hensilli, and Ae. aegypti. The virus was identified in rhesus monkeys during sylvatic yellow fever surveillance in the Zika Forest in Uganda in 1947 and was reported in humans in 1952 (1).. In 2007, an outbreak of ZIKV was reported in Yap Island, Federated States of Micronesia (2). ZIKV also caused a major epidemic in the French Polynesia in 2013-2014 (3), and New Caledonia reported imported cases from French Polynesia in 2013 and reported an outbreak in 2014 (4).. A new challenge has arisen in Brazil with the emergence of ZIKV and co-circulation with others arboviruses (i.e., DENV and chikungunya virus [CHIKV]). We report ZIKV infection in Brazil ...
Abstract. Under the Compact of Free Association (COFA), citizens from Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands-also known as COFA migrants-are granted broad migration rights in exchange for providing the United States the use of and access to strategic military defense positioning in the Pacific. For many years, these citizens have lived and worked in cooperation with the U.S. military even as their health was being detrimentally impacted by exposure to nuclear weaponry. Unfortunately, in the passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act in 1996, COFA migrants were stripped of their eligibility for most federal benefits, including Medicaid. In the aftermath of this decision, some states continued to provide health care to COFA migrants using state funds, however, the current fiscal crisis is forcing many states to reduce funding for these efforts, putting the health of this population at risk. It is the responsibility of the federal ...
Canberra - The World Bank (WB) warned, on Thursday, against the dire impacts of climate change on the Pacific islands.. Climate change will hit the Pacific harder than anywhere else on Earth and the regions tiny island nations need major international aid to deal with the challenge, the WB said in a report released at the Pacific Islands Forum in Samoa.. The report noted that even under a best-case scenario - with oceans rising 40 centimetres by 2100 - island nations would face huge costs building seawalls to protect their coastlines.. The worst-case outcome - waters up 126 centimetres by 2100 - would swamp large areas of habitable land in low-lying nations such as Kiribati, the Marshall Islands and Tuvalu.. There is little prospect that the high costs of building sea walls could be financed by the countries themselves, the report added.. It said that Kiribati and Tuvalu, which are both only a few metres above sea level, may need to consider wholesale migration, calling on Australia and New ...
At some point in the first half of the 20th century, a couple of ants hitched a ride on a boat and ended up on Christmas Island, an Australian territory in the Indian Ocean. And so began the rampage of the yellow crazy ants, creatures that have been named one of the top 100 most invasive species in the world. On Christmas Island, scientists have now declared an invasional meltdown of the original ecosystem [Science News].. The latest evidence: The ants are so plentiful and bothersome that theyre preventing birds from feeding on berries, and the birds are therefore failing to disperse seeds around the island.. Researcher Dennis ODowd explains that the long-legged yellowish ants earned the named crazy because when they are disturbed they run around frenetically. ODowd says crazy ants form large super-colonies and cover ground and vegetation in densities of around 1000 ants per square metre. These ants are three-dimensional foragers, he says [ABC Science]. The ants can thickly cover the ...
Sydney Morning Herald. March 26, 2011 As the smoke clears after the detention centre riots, the government is still not asking the big questions, writes David Marr. Now we are shooting them. Tear-gas, batons and water cannon were used years ago when unrest swept detention centres. But a fresh line was crossed on March 13 and crossed again a few nights later when Australian Federal Police at Christmas Islands North West Point detention centre fired on asylum seekers. Then the place was torched.. The riots mark the failure of another great Kevin Rudd initiative: to process all boat-people on this remote island. Logistical miracles are required to keep it operating. Distance makes everything so difficult. It costs a fortune: five times as much to process refugees out there as on the mainland. The Ombudsman, Allan Asher, declared in February this year: The current scale of the operation on Christmas Island is not sustainable.. On North West Point men with nothing to do but wait were sleeping in ...

Hurricanes are among natures most powerful and destructive phenomena. On average, 12 tropical storms, 6 of which become hurricanes form over the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, or Gulf of Mexico during the hurricane season which runs from June 1 to November 30 each year. In the Central Pacific Ocean, an average of 3 tropical storms, 2 of which become hurricanes form or move over the area during the hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30 each year. Guam, the Northern Marianas and Micronesia experience typhoons all year round but the main season in July through November with a peak from mid-August to mid-September. Over a typical 2-year period, the U.S. coastline is struck by an average of 3 hurricanes, 1 of which is classified as a major hurricane (winds of 111 mph or greater). By knowing what actions to take before the hurricane season begins, when a hurricane approaches, and when the storm is in your area, as well as what to do after a hurricane leaves your area, you can ...

Thomas argument here is not just a big lie -- its based on a total fabrication. No such fatwa has ever existed, nor is any such religious duty consistent with any official Iranian position. Iran, like most nations -- judging from UN resolution votes virtually every nation except for the US and Micronesia -- disapproves of Israels occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, or Israels refusal to allow Palestinian refugees from the 1948 and 1967 wars to return to their homes, and Israels frequent aggression against neighboring countries. But Iran has also taken the position that it is up to the Palestinians to decide how to deal with Israel. Iran has gone beyond other nations in that they provide substantial military aid to Hezbollah in Lebanon, but thus far at least Hezbollah has only used Iranian rockets in response to Israeli bombing of Lebanon. (Nor have those rockets been very effective.) That is a far cry from a plan to annihilate Israel.. The revolutionary Islamic government in Iran ...

According to the Korea Customs Service (KCS) data published last week, tuna exports reached 200,000 tons last year, up from 141,000 tons in 2013, reported Yonhap News Agency.. The value of the exports edged up 0.8 per cent to US$354 million from $351 million the year before.. The KCS said aggressive fishing for tuna that brought in larger hauls was the main reason for the export rise, as well as overseas demand for skipjack tunas used to make canned food.. Japan, Thailand and Vietnam were the top three largest export markets for tuna fish last year, accounting for 74.7 per cent of all shipments.. In regards to imports, volume was down 3.9 per cent on-year to 11,000 tons in 2014. Total fish imported last year reached $63 million, up 5.8 per cent from $60 million the year before.. The latest data showed most of South Koreas tuna imports came from China, Taiwan and Micronesia last year with most being expensive bigeye and bluefin tunas that are eaten raw.. ...

French bikini wax is a type of bikini wax and also known as partial Brazilian wax or modified bikini wax. It is between bikini wax and Brazilian wax. It is very similar to bikini wax with little difference of leaving small hair stripe on the front. In Brazilian waxing back hair is also removed which is not a part of French bikini wax. French bikini wax give you some extra pain as compared to regular bikini wax because hairs will removed from more sensitive area. In French bikini waxing all hairs are removed but leaving small vertical strips above the vulva. Generally length of strip is two to three finger-widths. ...
