A group of islands in the southwest central Pacific, divided into AMERICAN SAMOA and the INDEPENDENT STATE OF SAMOA (Western Samoa). First European contact was made in 1722 by Jacob Roggeveen, a Dutchman. In 1768 they were named Navigators Islands by Louis de Bougainville. The present name may derive from that of a local chieftain or from a local word meaning place of the moa, a now-extinct island bird. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p1061 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p481)
The collective name for the islands of the Pacific Ocean northeast of Australia, including NEW CALEDONIA; VANUATU; New Hebrides, Solomon Islands, Admiralty Islands, Bismarck Archipelago, FIJI, etc. Melanesia (from the Greek melas, black + nesos, island) is so called from the black color of the natives who are generally considered to be descended originally from the Negroid Papuans and the Polynesians or Malays.

Variation in oral susceptibility to dengue type 2 virus of populations of Aedes aegypti from the islands of Tahiti and Moorea, French Polynesia. (1/181)

Twenty three samples of Aedes aegypti populations from the islands of Tahiti and Moorea (French Polynesia) were tested for their oral susceptibility to dengue type 2 virus. The high infection rates obtained suggest that the artificial feeding protocol used was more efficient than those previously described. Statistical analysis of the results allowed us to define two distinct geographic areas on Tahiti with respect to the susceptibility of Ae. aegypti: the east coast, with homogeneous infection rates, and the west coast, with heterogeneous infection rates. No geographic differences could be demonstrated on Moorea. The possible mechanisms of this phenomenon are discussed in connection with recent findings on the variability of susceptibility of Ae. aegypti to insecticides.  (+info)

The molecular genetics of European ancestry. (2/181)

In an earlier paper we proposed, on the basis of mitochondrial control region variation, that the bulk of modern European mitochondrial DNA(mtDNA) diversity had its roots in the European Upper Palaeolithic. Refining the mtDNA phylogeny and enlarging the sample size both within Europe and the Middle East still support this interpretation and indicate three separate phases of colonization: (i) the Early Upper Palaeolithic about 50,000 BP; (ii) the Late Upper Palaeolithic 11,000-14,000 BP; and (iii) the Neolithic from 8500 BP.  (+info)

Breast cancer in Maori and non-Maori women. (3/181)

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer is more common in Maori than in non-Maori women under the age of 40 years and is equally common in older women, despite Maori being generally of lower socioeconomic status and having had a higher fertility rate than non-Maori. METHODS: Data from a nationwide population-based case-control study of breast cancer in New Zealand women aged 25-54 years were used to compare the age-adjusted distribution of reproductive and other risk factors for breast cancer in self-identified Maori and non-Maori women from the control group. Separate analyses also were carried out for women aged 25-39 years and for those aged 40-54 years. The risk of breast cancer according to the proportion of Maori ancestry was estimated using multiple logistic regression simultaneously adjusting for several risk factors. RESULTS: Significant differences were found between self-identified Maori and non-Maori women in the age-adjusted frequencies for education level, socioeconomic status, age at first full-term pregnancy, parity, and duration of breastfeeding; the profile in all instances suggesting a lower risk of breast cancer for Maori than for non-Maori. There were no significant differences with respect to age at menarche, surgery for benign breast disease or a family history of breast cancer. Significantly more Maori than non-Maori were in the highest quartile of recent body mass index. Women self-identified as Maori has an approximately twofold higher risk of breast cancer than non-Maori women. CONCLUSIONS: Maori have high rates of breast cancer despite having a more favourable profile than non-Maori for most identified risk factors.  (+info)

Hepatitis B carriage explains the excess rate of hepatocellular carcinoma for Maori, Pacific Island and Asian people compared to Europeans in New Zealand. (4/181)

BACKGROUND: The aim of this research was to determine the hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) carrier prevalence among cases of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and the population attributable risk of HBsAg carriage for HCC, by ethnicity in New Zealand. METHODS: The hospital notes of HCC cases registered with the New Zealand Cancer Registry, for the years 1987-1994 inclusive, were viewed to determine the HBsAg status. Results The HBsAg status was determined for 193 cases of HCC. The HBsAg carrier prevalence for non-Europeans with HCC was markedly higher than that for Europeans, being 76.7% for Maori, 80.0% for Pacific Island people, and 88.5% for Asians, compared to 6.0% for Europeans. In addition to the effect of ethnicity, HCC cases aged <60 years were more likely to be HBsAg carriers than those aged > or = 60 years. The estimated population attributable risk of HBsAg for HCC, within each ethnic group, was only marginally less than the HBsAg prevalence due to the high relative risk of HBsAg carriage for HCC. The standardized incidence rate ratios of HCC for Maori, Pacific Island people and Asians compared to Europeans were 9.6, 20.4, and 22.3, respectively. Hepatocellular carcinoma attributable to HBsAg carriage explained 79%, 83%, and 92% of the excess standardized rate of HCC, compared to Europeans, for Maori, Pacific Island people, and Asians, respectively. Conclusions The HBsAg carrier prevalence in non-European cases of HCC in New Zealand is between 75% and 90%. HBsAg carriage explains the majority of the excess rate of HCC in non-Europeans compared to Europeans in New Zealand.  (+info)

Identification and phylogenetic characterization of a human T-cell leukaemia virus type I isolate from a native inhabitant (Rapa Nui) of Easter Island. (5/181)

Human T-cell leukaemia virus type I (HTLV-I) is endemic in Melanesia, one of the three ethnogeographic regions of the Pacific; in the other two regions, Polynesia and Micronesia, the incidence of the virus is relatively low. In an effort to gain new insights into the prevalence of HTLV-I in the Pacific region, we did a seroepidemiological survey on Easter Island, which is located on the eastern edge of Polynesia. Of 138 subjects surveyed, including 108 Rapa Nui (the native inhabitants of this island), we identified one HTLV-I-seropositive Rapa Nui. The new HTLV-I isolate derived from this carrier (E-12) was phylogenetically analysed to ascertain the origin and past dissemination of HTLV-I in the island. The analysis demonstrated that isolate E-12 belongs to subgroup A of the Cosmopolitan group, and that it differs from HTLV-Is found in Melanesia, which are highly divergent variants. In subgroup A, E-12 grouped with South American HTLV-Is including those from Amerindians. This result suggests that this isolate originated in South America rather than in Melanesia.  (+info)

Identification of Treponema pallidum subspecies pallidum in a 200-year-old skeletal specimen. (6/181)

Treponema pallidum subsp. pallidum, the causative agent of venereal syphilis, was detected in a 200-year-old skeletal specimen from Easter Island. An initial diagnosis of treponemal infection was confirmed by extensive purification of immunoglobulin that reacted strongly with T. pallidum antigen. Extracted DNA exhibited a single-base polymorphism that distinguished T.p. subsp. pallidum from 4 other human and nonhuman treponemes. Extensive precautions against contamination of the subject matter with modern treponemal DNA were employed, including analysis of archaeological and modern specimens in 2 geographically separate laboratories. Molecular determination of historical disease states by using skeletal material can significantly enhance our understanding of the pathology and spread of infectious diseases.  (+info)

Dengue: an evaluation of dengue severity in French Polynesia based on an analysis of 403 laboratory-confirmed cases. (7/181)

We conducted a retrospective study of 403 laboratory-confirmed dengue cases hospitalized in Tahiti between August 1989 and March 1997. According to standard WHO criteria, 337 of these cases were dengue fever (DF) and 64 were dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF). Of the 10 fatal cases, 6 were DF and 4 were DHF. As an alternative, we used a correspondence analysis procedure to define dengue severity based on basic clinical and biological criteria for which we assigned a severity score, and then selected the 50 most severe cases from this analysis. Of the latter, 17 patients had been classified as DF and 33 as DHF by the WHO criteria. From this analysis, haemorrhages and decreased platelets counts associated with hepatic disorders are the main criteria associated with the severe dengue cases. Thus in our study population, the WHO classification does not account for the overall severity of dengue; hepatic failure should be considered as a specific severe form of dengue since plasma leakage, which is the pathophysiological hallmark of DHF, is only one of the pathogenic mechanisms leading to severity.  (+info)

Short report: microsatellite sequences as markers for population genetic studies of the mosquito Aedes aegypti, the vector of dengue viruses. (8/181)

We report the isolation of microsatellites from an enriched library of genomic repeated sequences, using a biotin-labeled oligonucleotide bound to streptavidin-coated magnetic particles. Four microsatellites were obtained from a partial library of 120 recombinant clones. This more efficient and rapid method to obtain these specific repeated sequences is preferred to the conventional isolation procedure based on the construction of a genomic library. Microsatellite markers would be promising molecular tools for the study of genetic variability of mosquito populations. Analyses of genetic structure and gene flow would provide information on the distance, direction and rate of dispersal of genes in Aedes aegypti populations. Knowledge on gene dispersal patterns is required to develop vector control strategies.  (+info)

Polynesia is part of Oceania, comprising over a thousand islands in the south Pacific Ocean. The Polynesian people may be descended from the Lapita people who migrated into the islands now known as Fiji (usually located in Melanesia), Samoa and Tonga several thousand years ago,[1][2] and later Polynesians migrated to New Zealand (the Maori arrived around 1000 AD), Hawaii and other islands. Other countries and territories in Polynesia include American Samoa, Niue, Tuvalu, Wallis and Futuna, French Polynesia (including Tahiti), Pitcairn Island, Cook Islands and Tokelau. Like other cultures, the Polynesians used a flattened or terraced pyramid for worship, similar to a ziggurat. They grew in population most significantly after A.D. 1000. Michael Crichton wrote:[3] ...

Spatial patterns of juvenile and adult scleractinian corals were analyzed and compared at Moorea, French Polynesia, in order to better understand the processes that influence coral population dynamics and maintenance. Variation in the abundance and composition of juvenile (, 5 cm in diameter) vs adult corals were examined at three depths (6, 12, 18 m) at each of three locations (Vaipahu, Tiahura, Haapiti) on the outer reef slope. A marked spatial heterogeneity for both juvenile and adult assemblages was found with significant variation across depths and locations. Trends in spatial variation were highly similar between juvenile and adult assemblages, and the overall abundance (all genera pooled) of juvenile corals was positively and highly correlated with the abundance of adults. However, within the six dominant genera, which are all broadcast spawners, we found positive and significant correlations between adult and juvenile abundance for only Acropora, Fungia, Montipora, and Pavona, and not ...

The Tahiti rail, Tahitian red-billed rail, or Pacific red-billed rail (Gallirallus pacificus) is an extinct species of rail that lived on Tahiti. It was first recorded during James Cooks second voyage around the world (1772-1775), on which it was illustrated by Georg Forster and described by Johann Reinhold Forster. No specimens have been preserved. As well as the documentation by the Forsters, there have been claims that the bird also existed on the nearby island of Mehetia. The Tahiti rail appears to have been closely related to, and perhaps derived from, the buff-banded rail, and has also been historically confused with the Tongan subspecies of that bird. The Tahiti rail was 9 inches (23 centimetres) long, and its colouration was unusual for a rail. The underparts, throat, and eyebrow-like supercilium were white, and the upper parts were black with white dots and bands. The nape (or hind neck) was ferruginous (rust-coloured), the breast was grey, and it had a black band across the lower ...

Cook Islands Meteorological Service (CIMS) director Arona Ngari told CI News yesterday that TD 8F was slow-moving with an average wind of 25 knots at its centre.. Those winds were expected to intensify to 35 knots after midnight last night.. Ngari said the low depression system was expected to be given a name by today, upgrading it to a tropical cyclone.. Right now, the two islands that are under threat are Palmerston and probably Rarotonga.. Palmerston is expected to face the brunt of the storm by tomorrow and Rarotonga by Friday.. It is slow-moving, ...

The 2017 Financial Institutions and Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions Sectors Review of Risk builds on the National Risk Assessment from 2015. This report assesses the risk in both primary threats and high risk sectors and secondary threats low risk sectors. These two reports are bought together in an overarching report that highlights the positive work the Cook Islands has done since the publication of the National Risk Assessment 2015.. This report is an important document in evidencing that the Cook Islands identifies, assesses and understands its money laundering and terrorist financing risks. It evidences the involvement of all competent authorities and the role of the NACC in this process. Understanding the risks will enable all authorities, reporting institutions and DNFBPs in the prioritisation of AML/CFT risk policies and activities in a coordinated way. This will result in the mitigation of the ML/TF risk within the Cook Islands.. The 2017 Financial Institutions ...

The Cook Islands Ministry of Health has confirmed seven cases of chikungunya on Rarotonga since November 2014, in which three of the cases were considered locally acquired.. Local transmission means that mosquitoes in the area have been infected with chikungunya and are spreading it to people.. CDC recommends that travelers to the Cook Islands protect themselves from mosquito bites. Some travelers may be more likely to get chikungunya, have severe disease, or be at higher risk for other reasons. CDC advises travelers in high-risk groups to discuss their travel plans with their health care provider.. Chikungunya is a viral disease transmitted by the bite of infected mosquitoes such as Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. It can cause high fever, join and muscle pain, and headache. Chikungunya does not often result in death, but the joint pain may last for months or years and may become a cause of chronic pain and disability.. There is no specific treatment for chikungunya infection, nor any ...

Anthropogenic impacts and climate change are increasing the frequency and intensity at which ecosystems are being perturbed. On tropical reefs, disturbances can result in loss of live coral and sometimes initiate a transition to an alternative community state, frequently one dominated by macroalgae. Because algae-dominated reefs may have lower productivity, decreased species diversity and reduced ecosystem services, there has been considerable interest in elucidating the mechanisms that mediate a transition to an algae dominated state or the re-establishment of coral. In this dissertation I explore how physical attributes of a coral reef and the echinoid and fish communities control algal growth and influence the return to coral dominance. Recent disturbances in Moorea, French Polynesia offer an opportunity to examine the effects of architectural complexity of the substrate on recruitment of new coral colonists. I explore how the success of new coral colonists is affected by variation in ...

The dispersal of modern humans across the globe began ∼65,000 y ago when people first left Africa and culminated with the settlement of East Polynesia, which occurred in the last 1,000 y. With the arrival of Polynesian canoes only 750 y ago, Aotearoa/New Zealand became the last major landmass to be permanently settled by humans. We present here complete mitochondrial genome sequences of the likely founding population of Aotearoa/New Zealand recovered from the archaeological site of Wairau Bar. These data represent complete mitochondrial genome sequences from ancient Polynesian voyagers and provide insights into the genetic diversity of human populations in the Pacific at the time of the settlement of East Polynesia ...
A virus infection which causes the brain of new born to shrink has assumed epidemic proportion in Brazil. The virus called ZIKA which previously was only found in forest monkeys now affects human beings.. Zika virus was first discovered about 70 years ago in African monkeys but first noticed in human population in 2007 in Yap Island where about 11,000 residents were affected from there it went to Tahiti and French Polynesia and in may 2015 reached Brazil.. An autopsy of a child who died of microcephaly showed the Zika virus in the brain; this was traced to the mother, which means the virus passes from mother to the child in the womb.. The infection has also been found in Cape Verde in West Africa and Honduras in Central America.. Like most virus infections, it has no cure but the spread can be controlled by destroying the mosquitoes that carry the virus, Brazil is doing just that.. West Africans and Central Americans to please note.. ...
Whether M. citrifolia comes originally from Polynesia or South East Asia is still not known. According to Johansson (1994), M. citrifolia was an endemic species of the Pacific. Herbal medicines like the seeds, fruit, roots and leaves of M. citrifolia have been used for a long time to treat both internal and external ailments by the pacific islanders. Therefore it is believed that M. citrifolia seeds were being distributed to Southeast Asia, India and Caribbean by fellow voyagers (Abbott, 1992; Whistler, 1992). M. citrifolia have been used therapeutically for at least two thousand years in the Eastern pacific (i.e. in Hawaii and Tahiti). It is still used as a herbal medicine in many Pacific islands (Abbott, 1992; Whistler, 1992; Hirazumi et al, 1996; Wang et al., 1999). Some papers indicate that M. citrifolia is native to Southeast Asia (e.g. Malaysia) and is cultivated in India, Caribbean, Polynesia and the States but there are limited documentations to identify the origin of the plant (Dixon et ...
The magnificent view of the full body of the Moai statues hidden beneath the earth in Easter Island tells a tale about the inhabitants of this island hundreds of years ago. No wonder it has earned its place as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Carved mostly from volcanic rocks by the Rapanui people, the intrinsic details on the body speaks of the carving skills and the artistic nature of these inhabitants. Made from one large rock weighing about 14 tonnes, it fetches a height between 2.5 - 10 metres. Although it is known that there are about 1000 Moai statues in this island, it is still unknown why, when or how it was made. It is a common belief that it was made to deify their ancestors. ...

This dataset contains the percentage cover of all stony corals (Scleractinia, pooled among genera) and other major groups analyzed from 0.5 x 0.5 m photographic quadrats at the Backreef habitat at the Moorea Coral Reef LTER, French Polynesia. This survey time series began in 2005 and is repeated each year in April. Functional groups counted are: Scleractinian corals, Macroalgae, Crustose Coralline Algae / Bare Space, Soft Corals, Hydrocorals (Millepora), Algal Turf and Sand. The coral community was sampled photographically in all represented habitats surrounding the island: Fringing Reef, Lagoon, and Outer Reef. This dataset contains only Lagoon (Backreef) data (see knb-lter-mcr.4 for the other habitats) and is structured in a repeated-measures protocol to allow a statistical contrast of sites, shores and times. Community structure was determined through a coarse analysis of the benthic community, initially completed in situ (2005), but using photoquadrats from 2006. There are quadrats analyzed ...

European exploration and settlement of Oceania began in the 16th century, starting with Portuguese settling the Moluccas and Spanish (Castilian) landings and shipwrecks in the Marianas Islands, east of the Philippines, followed by the Portuguese landing and settling temporarily (due to the monsoons) in the Tanimbar or the Aru Islands and in some of the Caroline Islands and Papua New Guinea, and several Spanish landings in the Caroline Islands and New Guinea.[citation needed] Subsequent rivalry between European colonial powers, trade opportunities and Christian missions drove further European exploration and eventual settlement. After the 17th century Dutch landings in New Zealand and Australia, but not settling these lands, the British became the dominant colonial power in the region, establishing settler colonies in what would become Australia and New Zealand, both of which now have majority European-descended populations. New Caledonia (Caldoche),[1] Hawaii,[2] French Polynesia,[3] Norfolk ...
Pago Pago is a nice town situated in a bay with a fiord, and the main island, Tutuila, has waterfalls and some historical places, such as Tula, from where the old Polynesian embarked to discover other Pacific islands, such as the Marquesas, in French Polynesia. It is also worth a visit Aasu and its monument to La Perouse, the French explorer of the XVIII century who had a battle with the natives losing 12 men (the Samoans lose 40 men). Some time later La Perouse and his men lose their lives in the Solomon ...
On World Diabetes Day, the Pacific Community (SPC) is calling on all Pacific Island countries and territories and the regions development partners to maintain the momentum for urgent action to prevent and control diabetes.. Pacific Island people experience a high burden from diabetes complications, such as amputations, heart disease, kidney failure and blindness.. In addition to causing stress on individuals and families, this health problem - part of an NCDs crisis in the region - undermines Pacific sustainable development and results in significant negative economic and social impacts.. Coordinated by the World Diabetes Foundation, World Diabetes Day on 14 November recognises diabetes as a chronic, debilitating and costly disease that poses significant risks for individuals, families, communities and countries.. To support diabetes prevention and control efforts in the Pacific, SPC has created a Healthy Shopping List in collaboration with the Dieticians Association of French Polynesia ...
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 ...

After criticism that the World Health Organization responded slowly in 2014 to Ebola virus disease, and now to the epidemic of Zika virus disease,1 on 1 February 2016 WHOs director general, Margaret Chan, convened a meeting of the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee. After the meeting she declared Zika a public health emergency of international concern, because of the possible association with growing clusters of microcephaly and other neurological disorders in French Polynesia and Brazil. In less than a year this virus has spread to over 25 nations in the Americas, the Pacific islands, and Cape Verde in west Africa.. Faced with rapidly evolving concern among travelers, the public (particularly pregnant women and their partners), and the media, what are healthcare providers to do? Fortunately, they can provide accurate answers from several reliable sources, including Public Health England,2 the Pan American Health Organization,3 the US Centers for Disease Control and ...
Zika disease (ZIKV) illness has been associated with severe complications both in the developing and adult nervous system. abnormalities including multipolar spindle chromosome BMPS laggards micronuclei and death of progeny after cell division. FISH analysis for chromosomes 12 and 17 showed increased frequency of aneuploidy such as monosomy trisomy and polyploidy. Our study reinforces the link between ZIKV and abnormalities in the developing human brain including microcephaly. Zika computer virus (ZIKV) is usually a mosquito-borne Flavivirus first recognized in rhesus monkeys in the Zika TMOD3 Forest in Uganda in 1947 and only being reported infecting humans in 19521. After 2007 outbreaks of ZIKV were reported in Micronesia French Polynesia New Caledonia and more recently Latin America2 3 4 After the outbreak of ZIKV in Brazil in 2015 a 20-fold increase in the number of microcephaly cases was observed establishing a temporal association5.

In order to study further the genetic structure of the pearl oyster Pinctada margaritifera in French Polynesia with a special consideration for the sampling scale, we analyzed or re-analyzed sets of data based on nuclear DNA markers obtained at different spatial scales. At a large scale (several 1,000 km), the remote Marquesas Islands were confirmed to be significantly differentiated from Tuamotu-Gambier and Society archipelagos, with a marked difference however for the two main islands that are different from each other. At a medium scale (several 10 to several 100 km), overall homogeneity was observed within and between these two archipelagos, with some exceptions. This could be attributed both to large-scale larval dispersal and to human-driven spat ...
Zika virus (ZIKV) is an arthropodborne member of the genus Flavivirus of the Spondweni serocomplex and is transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes (primarily Ae. aegypti in urban and periurban cycles). ZIKV emerged in Africa and has caused outbreaks of febrile disease that clinically resemble dengue fever and other arboviral diseases (1) but has been linked to neurologic syndromes and congenital malformation (2). Outbreaks have been reported in the Yap islands of the Federated States of Micronesia (3), French Polynesia (4), and Oceania; Brazil is currently experiencing the first reported local transmission of ZIKV in the Americas (5).. The future spread of ZIKV is unpredictable, but the history of ZIKV has been reminiscent of chikungunya virus (CHIKV), which reemerged in Africa and now circulates on all inhabited continents and is a major global health problem. ZIKV has been found in Colombia and is likely following the path of CHIKV, which reached the country in August 2014 (6). The virus co-circulates ...

Phylogenetic studies have shown that ZIKV has evolved into African and Asian lineages. The Asian lineage of ZIKV was responsible for the recent epidemics in the Americas. However, the underlying mechanisms through which ZIKV rapidly and explosively spread from Asia to the Americas are unclear. Non-structural protein 1 (NS1) facilitates flavivirus acquisition by mosquitoes from an infected mammalian host and subsequently enhances viral prevalence in mosquitoes. Here we show that NS1 ...

Florida is the U.S. port of entry for the Zika virus. So far, two neighborhoods in Miami have been declared places of active infestation by Zika-infected mosquitoes. The first was Wynwood, a hip community of funky, painted walls and edgy restaurants. Authorities call the infestation the Wynwood Exclusion Zone. As of this morning, Wynwood is no longer exclusive. The virus has spread to Miami Beach. Theres plenty of warm and humid weather left, so Zika is on the move. Thats no good for tourism, Floridas $24 billion cash crop. The Florida Congressional delegation and Governor Rick Scott are flipping out.. Zika can be traced to the forests of Uganda, where it was first identified in 1947. By 2007, it had spread to Micronesia, then French Polynesia and from there to Brazil in April 2015. Since then, Zika has been working its way north. The Center for Disease Control posted its first travel alert in January 2016. At last count, a total of 8,000 cases have been reported in the U.S.. The virus is ...

The pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera (Linnaeus, 1758), represents the second economic resource of French Polynesia. It is one of the only bivalves expressing a large varied range of inner shell color, & by correlation, of pearl color. This phenotypic variability is partly under genetic control, but also under environmental influence. With ImaginR, its now possible to delimit the color phenotype of the pearl oysters inner shell and to characterize their color variations (by the HSV color code system) with pictures.
History of Ocean Exploration ~ 30,000 years ago - eastward migration in Pacific ocean from the area between what is now Australia and China to the Pacific Islands For ~ 25,000 years, Polynesians colonized the islands of the south and western Pacific, from New Guinea in the west to Fiji and Samoa in the middle. Moved to Tahiti and finally Easter Island in the eastern south Pacific. Colonized the Hawaiian Islands about 500 years ago.

I received an absolutely gorgeous head lei and so many shell leis that I cant even remember the number I was given. I was in Tahiti while competing in a regatta in the 70s. At the time, I was part of a large group of teens from Hawaii and got tired of the girl teen drama; so I left the Paul Gauguin dormitory and found a group of children and put together a little recreation center where I coached the kids in soccer after our crew finished training; hence; I was able to escape the girl teen drama and played with the locals. Before leaving Kailua, Hawaii, we were briefed on the generosity of the Tahitian and asked to try and remember not to say; oh, I love your…blah blah because the Tahitians would ...
Scientists have discovered a drug they believe can reverse the effects of premature aging and could extend human life by over a decade. Rapamycin was created from a chemical found in the soil on Easter Island, which is one of the most remote places on Earth and 2,000 miles off the coast of Chile. The drug, which has been nicknamed the forever young drug, was used in experiments on children suffering from Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS). HGPS is a rare condition in which aging is hyper-accelerate and sufferers die of old age at around 12 years. HGPS causes a protein called progerin to build up in every cell of the body, causing them to age prematurely. Rapamycin cleaned the cells of progerin, which swept away the defects and left healthy cells. Researchers are expected to start looking at whether the drug could be used more widely, after similarities between HGPS and the normal aging process were uncovered. The drug is already used to suppress the immune system in organ ...
I learned to sail in high school by trading baby sitting, of my cousins young son, for sailing lessons. At that time I was 16 years old and have been addicted to sailing since then. Karla and I had a small C-15 in the early days of our marriage and later sold it when our children came along. Our prior experience was on lakes but we always said that we would go to the ocean someday. Two years ago we started our adventure at sea as we started the process of getting our ASA certificates and then spending as much time as possible sailing between Oxnard, CA and the offshore Channel Islands. Now, after 34 years of marriage we making real progress toward our goal of becoming cruisers. We are rehearsing our future dream of through your adventure and experience. Our next training step toward cruising is an 8 day bare boat charter in the BVI in November. Rich and Sheri Leimbach, that you met with us in Catalina, will be sailing with us then too. Im sure well think of you many times during our trip ...
