What's driving an epidemic? The spread of syphilis along an interstate highway in rural North Carolina. (1/1018)OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine whether county syphilis rates were increased along Interstate Highway 95 (I-95) in North Carolina during a recent epidemic. METHODS: Ecological data on syphilis cases demographic data, highway data, and drug activity data were used to conduct a cross-sectional and longitudinal study of North Carolina countries from 1985 to 1994. Crude and adjusted incidence rate ratios (IRRs) were determined by means of standard and longitudinal Poisson regression models adjusted for sociodemographic factors and drug use. RESULTS: Ten-year syphilis rates in I-95 counties greatly exceeded rates in non-I-95 counties (38 vs 16 cases per 100,000 persons) and remained higher after adjustment for race, age, sex, poverty, large cities, and drug activity (adjusted IRR = 2.05, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.84, 2.28). Syphilis rates were stable until 1989, when rates increased sharply in I-95 counties but remained stable in non-I-95 counties. Increased drug activity in I-95 counties preceded the rise in syphilis cases. CONCLUSIONS: A better understanding of the relationship between high-ways and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases may guide future prevention interventions. (+info)
Exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and genotoxic effects on nonsmoking Swedish road pavement workers. (2/1018)OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to investigate exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) from asphalt fumes among Swedish road pavement workers and determine whether any effects could be detected with genotoxic tests. METHODS: The study included 28 nonsmoking road pavers and 30 nonsmoking referents. The concentration of PAH was determined in the breathing zone of the road pavers. 1-Hydroxypyrene was analyzed before and after shifts of asphalt work and during the afternoon for referents. Sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) and micronuclei (MN) were determined in peripheral lymphocytes. RESULTS: Several 3- or 4-ring PAH were found, and the analysis indicated that they occurred in bitumen fumes rather than in traffic fumes. The average total concentration of PAH was 2.3 (range 0.2-23.8) microg/m3. The concentration of 1-hydroxypyrene in urine was higher for the road pavers than for the referents, but there was no significant difference between the pre- and postshift values of the road pavers. The road pavers had no significant increase in SCE or MN. CONCLUSIONS: The study showed that Swedish road pavers have an increased exposure to PAH from bitumen fumes, but no genotoxic effects could be detected by SCE or MN tests. (+info)
Socio-economic consequences of rheumatoid arthritis in the first years of the disease. (3/1018)OBJECTIVE: Few data have been presented to document the impact of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) on socio-economic well-being. In this study, exact figures on socio-economic consequences were assessed. METHODS: The socio-economic consequences were studied in an inception cohort (186 early RA patients, mean disease duration 3 yr) by measuring the change in work capability, income, rest during the daytime, leisure time activity, transport mobility, housing and social support occurring in the first years of the disease. RESULTS: For 89% of the patients, RA had an impact on one of the socio-economic items; for 58%, at least three of these items were affected simultaneously. Work disability appeared to be 4-15 times higher than in the general population. After 3 yr, 42% of the patients were registered as work disabled. Nearly a quarter of the patients experienced income reduction. Over 40% of the patients claimed extra rest during the daytime. Leisure activity changed towards activities with a lower joint load. There was a decline in transport mobility for 52% of the patients. Social support increased strongly. CONCLUSIONS: Socio-economic change already presents in the first years of RA and appears to be influenced by age, gender, marital status and work disability. Furthermore, physical limitation appeared to be predictive for work-related income reduction, reduced transport mobility and development of social dependency. (+info)
Racial discrimination and alcohol-related behavior in urban transit operators: findings from the San Francisco Muni Health and Safety Study. (4/1018)OBJECTIVE: A growing body of literature is documenting the health effects of racial discrimination. The authors investigated the association between racial discrimination and alcohol-related behavior in a sample of urban transit operators. METHODS: Using data from a 1993-1995 cross-sectional study of transit operators in San Francisco, California, the authors analyzed responses to two sets of questions about racial discrimination; the first set focused on reaction to unfair treatment and the second on arenas, or domains, of discrimination. Alcohol-related variables were: number of drinks per month, heavy drinking, alcohol dependence, and negative consequences of alcohol consumption. RESULTS: Operators who reported five or more domains of discrimination drank an average of 13.4 more drinks per month than those who reported no domains of discrimination (P = 0.01). Similarly, they were more likely to be heavy drinkers (adjusted odds ratio [OR] = 2.16; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.14, 4.09) and dependent on alcohol (adjusted OR = 2.02; 95% CI 1.08, 3.79) than operators who reported no domains of discrimination. The number of domains in which operators reported having experienced discrimination was not related to sex, age, household income, job seniority, or marital status, but varied significantly by educational level and race/ethnicity. CONCLUSIONS: Data from a sample of urban transit operators showed an association between the number of domains of discrimination and some alcohol-related outcomes, but not others. (+info)
Transport and temperature effects on measurement of serum and plasma potassium. (5/1018)Transport of blood samples from general practice to a central laboratory can result in spuriously high or low potassium concentrations. The importance of this phenomenon was studied in a general practice serving a population of 15,000 patients, 27 km from the pathology laboratory that routinely measured serum potassium. The design involved comparison of potassium levels between control serum (plain gel-separation serum tubes centrifuged in the surgery), routine serum (plain gel-separation tubes centrifuged in the laboratory) and routine plasma samples (lithium-heparin tubes centrifuged in the laboratory). Complete triple sets of data were obtained for 371 samples. Altman and Bland plots for the control serum vs routine serum samples showed a mean difference of +0.1 mmol/L with limits of agreement (+/- 2SD) +0.6 mmol/L, -0.4 mmol/L and for control serum vs routine plasma a mean difference of +0.2 mmol/L with limits of agreement +0.8 mmol/L, -0.4 mmol/L. There was a negative association between mean weekly routine plasma potassium levels with mean weekly temperatures achieved. Regression analysis indicated that both maximum temperature achieved and time to centrifugation significantly contributed to differences observed in the routine plasma samples, but not with the routine serum samples. For plasma samples exposed to high temperatures a clinically significant lowering of potassium concentrations can arise. These results confirm that spurious lowering of potassium concentrations occurs in plasma samples collected in a primary care setting. The preferred method is to centrifuge samples soon after venepuncture. Where this is not possible, collection into plain gel-separation tubes (serum) ensures less variation due to temperature and time to centrifugation than does collection into lithium-heparin tubes (plasma).

Stability of plasma human immunodeficiency virus load in VACUTAINER PPT plasma preparation tubes during overnight shipment. (6/1018)VACUTAINER PPT plasma preparation tubes were evaluated to determine the effects of various handling and shipping conditions on plasma human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) load determinations. Plasmas obtained from PPT tubes stored and shipped under nine different conditions were compared to conventional EDTA tube plasmas stored at -70 degrees C within 2 h after phlebotomy. Compared to viral loads in frozen EDTA plasma, those in PPT tube plasma that was frozen immediately and either separated or shipped in situ were not significantly different. Viral loads in PPT tube plasma after storage for 6 h at either room temperature or 4 degrees C, followed by shipment at ambient temperature or on wet or dry ice, were not significantly different from baseline viral loads in EDTA or PPT plasma. The results of this study indicate that the HIV load in PPT tube plasma is equivalent to that in standard EDTA plasma. Plasma viral load is not affected by storage or shipment temperature when plasma is collected in PPT tubes. Furthermore, plasmas can be shipped in spun PPT tubes, and the tubes provide a safer and more convenient method for sample collection and transport than regular EDTA tubes. (+info)
Analysis of incidence of childhood cancer in the West Midlands of the United Kingdom in relation to proximity to main roads and petrol stations. (7/1018)OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether there is an excess of leukaemias in 0-15 year old children among those living in close proximity (within 100 m) of a main road or petrol station. METHODS: Data for 0-15 year old children diagnosed between 1990 and 1994 in the United Kingdom West Midlands were used. Postcode addresses were used to locate the point of residence which was compared with proximity to main roads and petrol stations separately, and to both together. Odds ratios (ORs) were calculated with solid tumours as a control, and incidence ratios (IRs) with population density as a control. RESULTS: The method based on solid tumours as a control showed ORs of 1.61 (95% confidence interval (95% CI) 0.90 to 2.87) and 1.99 (95% CI 0.73 to 5.43), for those living within 100 m of a main road or petrol station respectively. When population was used as a control, the estimated IRs for leukaemia were 1.16 (95% CI 0.74 to 1.72) and 1.48 (95% CI 0.65 to 2.93) for residence within 100 m of a main road or petrol station respectively, but neither reached significance at the 95% level. Results for residence in close proximity to both a main road and petrol station were inconsistent, but there were few. The influence of socioeconomic factors as represented by the Townsend deprivation index on leukaemia incidence was not significant and the results were not explicable on the basis of impact of social class. CONCLUSIONS: The results are suggestive of a small increase in risk of childhood leukaemia, but not solid tumours, for those living in close proximity to a main road or petrol station. This increase in risk is not, however, significant and a larger study is warranted to establish the true risk and causes of any increase in risk. (+info)
HIV heterogeneity and proximity of homestead to roads in rural South Africa: an exploration using a geographical information system. (8/1018)objective To describe heterogeneity of HIV prevalence among pregnant women in Hlabisa health district, South Africa and to correlate this with proximity of homestead to roads. methods HIV prevalence measured through anonymous surveillance among pregnant women and stratified by local village clinic. Polygons were created around each clinic, assuming women attend the clinic nearest their home. A geographical information system (GIS) calculated the mean distance from homesteads in each clinic catchment to nearest primary (1 degrees ) and to nearest primary or secondary (2 degrees ) road. results We found marked HIV heterogeneity by clinic catchment (range 19-31% (P < 0.001). A polygon plot demonstrated lower HIV prevalence in catchments remote from 1 degrees roads. Mean distance from homesteads to nearest 1 degrees or 2 degrees road varied by clinic catchment from 1623 to 7569 m. The mean distance from homesteads to a 1 degrees or 2 degrees road for each clinic catchment was strongly correlated with HIV prevalence (r = 0.66; P = 0.002). conclusions The substantial HIV heterogeneity in this district is closely correlated with proximity to a 1 degrees or 2 degrees road. GIS is a powerful tool to demonstrate and to start to analyse this observation. Further research is needed to better understand this relationship both at ecological and individual levels, and to develop interventions to reduce the spread of HIV infection. (+info)

The most effective life-saving traffic safety tool for a commuter and a community may be the daily metro transit pass. A person can reduce his or her chance of being in an accident by more than 90 percent simply by taking public transit as opposed to commuting by car. This means traveling by public transportation is ten times safer per mile than traveling by auto. Transit-oriented communities are five times safer than automobile-oriented communities. This means public transit cuts a communitys crash risk in half even for those who do not use public transit.

Thousands of riders boarded UTA trains and buses on Free Fare Friday, Dec. 22, and the result was a significant reduction in air pollution. An extra 17,560 cars were removed from the roads that day, and an additional 3 tons of pollutants and 200 tons of greenhouse gases were prevented from entering the atmosphere. "Free Fare Friday was designed to encourage people to try public transit - and it worked," said UTA President/CEO Jerry Benson. "Thousands of riders boarded our buses and trains, and we were able to save several tons of pollution from entering our atmosphere during a critical time of year for air quality. We hope this translates to more Wasatch Front residents who are willing to leave their cars at home and ride UTA again, especially during inversion season.". Ridership for the entire UTA system increased by 23 percent on Free Fare Friday, compared to the average of five previous weekdays. Approximately 22,800 more people than usual rode public transit on Dec. 22 using the same ...

Home » Information Center » Publications. Posted 9/13. The SouthWest Advisory Planning Committee (SWAP) requested that the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS) jointly analyze the existing public transit network in the subregion. The purpose of this evaluation was to identify opportunities to increase ridership and provide better connections to housing, employment, and commercial centers in the SWAP communities of Bellingham, Dover, Hopkinton, Franklin, Medway, Milford, Millis, Norfolk, Sherborn, and Wrentham. Current SWAP transit services are limited to Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) commuter rail, MetroWest Regional Transit Authority (MWRTA) fixed-route service, Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA) commuter shuttle services, GATRA in-town services and their support to councils on aging, and other in-town transportation services such as veterans services or volunteer driver programs..

By 2050, continued urbanization will add 2.5 billion people to todays worldwide urban population, with nearly 90% of the growth concentrated in Asia and Africa. India, China, and Nigeria together will account for nearly 37% of the estimated increase of the total urban population. In order to ensure that the benefits of urbanization are equitably distributed, strong policy instruments are required. Emerging economies where much of the infrastructure is yet to be built offer a unique opportunity for low-carbon development. This is especially true in the case of the transportation sector. Designing cities for public transportation, walking, and cycling can offer affordable ways to meet mobility demands and cut global pollutants. Choosing an appropriate transportation technology can significantly affect the spatial structures of cities and ensure a more sustainable form of development. While large and medium cities can be designed for public transportation, smaller cities can be designed for active ...

Eastern Royal Medical Transport recognizes the growing need for cost effective long distance medical transportation services.That is why we focus our services on non-emergency long distance medical ground transportation. Our goal is to provide persons seeking non-emergency medical transportation an alternative to the unnecessarily high costs of long distance ambulance or air medical transportation. We are the happy medium between emergency medical transportation and non medical transportation services. By removing the unnecessary emergency medical services we can lower our costs to a fraction of what an ambulance company charges for similar non-emergency medical transportation services.To achieve this cost effective means of transportation we place highly qualified medical personnel on our vehicles to ensure the quality and safety of every medical transport. ...
Shenhua, which belongs to Chinas biggest coal-based energy company Shenhua Group, owns railway routes spanning more than 2,000 km. Multimodal transportation. Piggyback transportation is a form of multimodal transportation, which combines at least two of the following logistics means: road, rail, sea and air, within one freight contract for the shipper. It is particularly suited for mid- and long-distance transportation. In the United States, truck-rail, truck-sea and rail-sea transportation links are the major transportation means for routes over 800 kilometers, while in Europe, these forms of transportation accounted for about 25 percent of all transportation means in 2015, according to Kang ...

Traffic Reform. According to the TomTom Traffic Index, Portland has become one of the top ten cities in the nation with the most traffic congestion. With our ever-growing population, issues abound with inadequate public transportation and commuting options for drivers. Our current infrastructure does not support the hundreds of thousands of cars on the roads, and there are many necessary repairs needed to restore bridges and highways. The current City Council proposal does not reduce carbon emissions, focuses on unrealistic highway expansion and minimal street repairs for a total of 450 million dollars. In other growing cities such as Los Angeles, Seattle, etc., it has been statistically and historically proven to increase one-person driver vehicles and has been unsuccessful in eliminating or decreasing traffic congestion.. How can we create a city that is more green, provides excellent public transportation and also has a budget for maintaining sustainable city infrastructure? Well, I believe ...

The national strategy for reducing road transport emissions is likely to be ultimately effective. Professor Alastair Lewis from the Department of Chemistry said: "The wide range of simultaneous actions being proposed, and sectors and pollutants being targeted, is a reflection that further improving air quality in the U.K. is getting harder and harder, now the big industrial and combustion sources are under control.. "Whilst road transport emissions remain a critical source of pollution in U.K. cities they are on a gradual downwards trajectory for both NOx and PM. The rate of adoption of electric vehicles may be proceeding only slowly, and uncertainty remains over their non-exhaust emissions, however the national strategy for reducing road transport emissions is likely to be ultimately effective, if a somewhat lengthy and drawn out process over two decades.. Quietly increasing. "Whilst road transport has already seen recent reductions in emissions, domestic and agricultural releases of air ...
The EU HyWays project has released its main report European Hydrogen Energy Roadmap The Roadmap analyzes the potential impacts on the EU economy, society and environment of the large-scale introduction of hydrogen in the short- and long- term (up to 2050). A few excerpts from the press release announcing the report follow: The scientific project HyWays funded by the EUs research program has found that introducing hydrogen into the energy system would reduce the total oil consumption by the road transport sector by 40% between now and 2050. Substantial barriers have first to be overcome, ranging from economic and technological to institutional barriers, and actions must be taken as soon as possible. Following a series of more than 50 workshops the project has produced a Roadmap to analyze the potential impacts on the EU economy, society and environment of the large-scale introduction of hydrogen in the short- and long- term, as well as an action plan detailing what needs to...

Description | Recommended courses Description Transportation has always played an essential role in the development of society, originally with regard to trade routes and harbours, but more recently with regard to land- and air-based systems as well. It is the transportation engineers responsibility to plan, design, build, operate and maintain these systems of transport, in such a way as to provide for the safe, efficient and convenient movement of people and goods. Increasing environmental concerns have revived an interest in the development and management of public transportation systems. Professional activities can range from road and transit design and operation at the urban scale, to railroad, seaway and airport location, construction and operation at the regional and national scale. Transportation engineering in North America focuses on automobile infrastructures, although it also encompasses sea, air and rail systems. Automobile infrastructures can be split into the traditional area of highway

Downloadable! Sustainable passenger transport policies are most often directed towards everyday travel and ignore the large and expanding amount of leisure travel. The paper examines whether policies aimed at reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions for everyday travel may have the opposite effect on leisure travel by reviewing studies of three sustainable passenger transport policies: developing more compact cities, building pro-environment awareness and attitudes, and promoting the growth of information and communication technologies. We found that the policies may indeed have unintended effects and suggest several mechanisms that could explain why this opposite effect occurs. Consideration is also given to the implications for developing more comprehensive sustainable transport policies.
Im going to show you some numbers," says Lerner. He reaches for a pen and quickly scratches out some figures, mapping the standard cost differential between the three major modes of public transportation. "Lets say the cost of a metro is $100 million per kilometer, light-rail tends to be $20 million per kilometer, and BRT is $1 to 2 million.". He pauses briefly. "Time… You can do BRT in two or three years. Light-rail, 10 years and Metro, 30 years.". Actual costs and times vary from place to place, but the point is well made. The main driver behind Curitibas innovative bus system has always been, and continues to be, the prohibitively high cost of constructing rail lines.. If building subways and light rail systems is so expensive, then why havent more congested cities in the US not followed Curitibas model? Could BRT be the saving grace for US cities that are short on mass transit funds but are looking to increase public transportation?. These questions tend to send both bus backers and ...

The justification for this study was that scientific data on the efficacy of foaming for decontamination of PRRSV-positive transport vehicles were not available, and that this method of application of disinfectant was rapidly increasing in North American production systems. Under the conditions of the study, washing with cold water alone had little impact on eliminating PRRSV from trailer interiors, supporting previously published work.12-14 PRRS virus RNA was detected in 80 of 80 swabs (100%) collected immediately after the washing procedure across all replicates. Also, despite the use of high pressure, washing did not result in complete removal of organic debris from the trailers, a frequent observation under field conditions. Results also indicated a difference in the performance of disinfectants tested in this study compared to previously published work.14 Samples from trailer models treated with modified potassium monopersulfate or quaternary ammonium chloride were negative for PRRSV RNA by ...

A private vehicle for driving to and from work, as well as for personal use around Dhaka is a necessity. The majority of people only drive within a limited radius under extremely congested conditions, which causes dents and scratches even when driving exclusively in the expatriate suburbs. Therefore, bringing a brand new or expensive vehicle is not recommended. Small size or four-wheel-drives (such as a RAV 4) are best suited for the congested road conditions. Many city streets are narrow, rough, and crowded with buses, trucks, rickshaws, pushcarts, animals, and pedestrians. Air-conditioning is strongly recommended. Driving is on the left, but both right-hand and left-hand-drive vehicles may be used. Bicycle rickshaws, baby-taxis (small three-wheeled motorized vehicles), and buses provide public transportation. Nevertheless, both the RMO and the RSO strongly advise Mission employees not to use public transportation due to security and safety concerns. Often, a used car may be purchased from ...
Federal Transit Administration (FTA): (Formerly the Urban Mass Transportation Administration) operates under the authority of the Federal Transit Act, as amended (49 U.S.C. app. 1601 et seq.). The Federal Transit Act was repealed on July 5, 1994, and the Federal transit laws were codified and re-enacted as chapter 53 of Title 49, United States Code. The Federal Transit Administration was established as a component of the Department of Transportation by section 3 of Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1968 (5 U.S.C. app.), effective July 1, 1968. The missions of the Administration are 1) to assist in the development of improved mass transportation facilities, equipment, techniques, and methods, with the cooperation of mass transportation companies both public and private. 2) to encourage the planning and establishment of areawide urban mass transportation systems needed for economical and desirable urban development, with the cooperation of mass transportation companies both public and private. and 3) ...

One might wonder what the hell is up with the public transportation in Trondheim. We have among the most expensive bus tickets in Europe -- possibly the most expensive. Yet politicians pretend to promote public transportation. Their latest invention: in the middle of the city, we have a single block bus lane. If you dont know about this oddity, driving correctly through the inner city can be a bit...interesting. Especially since it is followed by a 30m stub of road where you have to get back onto the right lane in order to cross the next intersection. If you havent driven through there before and you dont know about this brainfart, things are going to get a bit busy as you try to figure it out with people on all sides driving rather aggressively ...
