Much research recognises the clinical value of considering clients cultural context. Cultural competence may be considered the balance between sensitive practice and an awareness about particular cultural groups. Jewishness is a powerful influence on the majority of Jewish people, regardless of religiosity. Jewishness incorporates more than Judaism, for example, it includes Jewish history, ethnicity and culture. This research aims to help therapists work with Jewish families by familiarising them with aspects of Jewishness, in order to gain insight to the lived experience of contemporary, British, Jewish families, so as to consider the potential clinical implications of Jewishness and develop cultural competence. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight British-born, culturally, rather than religiously, Jewish mothers aged between 30 and 39. The interview transcripts were analysed using an Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis methodology. Ten themes (^entity, Tradition ...
The delegates to the provincial constitution convention on Thursday vehemently opposed the article, which prescribes affirmative action for the minorities and marginalised groups as an attempt to legalise homosexuality in Zambia.. Practising homosexuality or lesbianism is currently a criminal offence in Zambia under Chapter 87 of the Penal Code.. After protracted debate during the plenary, convention chairperson Solomon Muzyamba asked the delegates to vote by acclamation.. Mr Muzyamba asked those who wanted the article removed from the draft constitution to say yes and those in support to say no.. The response from those who wanted the article removed was a resounding "yes" with only one voice in its support.. Several delegates argued that the article was not necessary because the rights of minorities and marginalised groups, including children, people with disabilities and non-Christians, have been covered by various articles under part five of the Bill of Rights.. Chief Sinazongwe said it will ...
Knee osteoarthritis is a highly prevalent condition that can result in disability and reduced quality of life. The evidence suggests that total knee replacement surgery (TKR) is an effective intervention for patients with severe knee problems, but there is also an unmet need for this treatment in the UK. To help understand the reason for this unmet need, the aim of this study was to explore the factors that influence the decision-making process of TKR surgery by synthesising the available evidence from qualitative research on this topic. A meta-synthesis was undertaken. This involved sevens steps: getting started, deciding what is relevant to the initial interest, reading the studies, determining how the studies are related, translating the studies into one another, synthesising translations, and finally, expressing the synthesis. Second-order and third-order interpretations regarding decision-making in TKR surgery were drawn from the literature. Ten qualitative studies were found and are included in

Introduction. The past decade has witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of children diagnosed with Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). According to Moore (2008), 1 in 1000 children were reported to be diagnosed with ASD in 1994, while Pottie and Ingram (2008) reported ASD prevalence as high as 6.7 children in every 1000 in the United States of America during 2007. Furthermore, evidence from a number of European countries including Denmark (Lauritsen, Pedersen, & Mortensen, 2004) and England (Baird et al., 2006), as well as from countries across Asia (Sun & Allison, 2010) suggests that the past 10 years have witnessed a noteworthy global increase in the prevalence of ASD diagnoses. It is debatable whether or not the actual incidence of ASD is on the rise. However, what appears obvious is that ASD diagnoses are being made more frequently worldwide. Matson and Kozlowski (2010) noted that while numerous theories have been formulated regarding the increase in ASD diagnoses, the ...
Introduction For many living with Huntingtons disease, care is provided by family members, primarily partners: a role revealed to adversely affect carers psychological well-being in other neurodegenerative conditions. The partner relationship has been argued as the most sensitive to this impact. To date there has been little systematic exploration of the impact of caring for a partner with HD, and what published literature is available is constrained by its chosen methodology.. ...

Maybe sometimes we should be story facilitators and help others tell their own stories instead of doing it for them. Enter participatory storytelling, whereby participants learn about narrative and use technology to produce their own media. By giving them control, we get a genuine storytellers perspective, plus theyre empowered through participation, not representation-which is the only solution to marginalization anyway. | Just Story It
The Lagos State Government Plan of Action to Empower Marginalised Adolescent Girls has been developed in response to the sheer number of marginalised adolescent girls who are still unreached, the magnitude of challenges they encounter and the need for guidance on how to effectively reach them. The Plan of Action makes the case for enhanced inter-sectoral and multi-stakeholder collaboration in efforts to ensure that marginalized adolescent girls are not left behind, in alignment with international commitments and national commitments towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) especially in Lagos State. It focuses attention on key populations of marginalised adolescent girls and highlights what global research evidence have shown to be the most productive approaches to reaching and empowering them ...
What factors shape a persons decision to migrate? Who stays behind in a war zone or highly insecure context, and why? A persons gender, age, religion, race, ethnicity, sexuality, health or disability shape every stage of the migration experience. The Institute of Development Studies has recently published two resources around the theme of migration and marginalisation which focus on gender, ageing and sexuality as key influencing factors.

In academia, the term queer and the related verb queering broadly indicate the study of literature, discourse, academic fields, and other social and cultural areas from a non-heteronormative perspective. It often means studying a subject against the grain from the perspective of gender studies.. Queer studies is the study of issues relating to sexual orientation and gender identity usually focusing on LGBT people and cultures. Originally centered on LGBT history and literary theory, the field has expanded to include the academic study of issues raised in biology, sociology, anthropology, history of science, philosophy, psychology, sexology, political science, ethics, and other fields by an examination of the identity, lives, history, and perception of queer people. Organizations such as the Irish Queer Archive attempt to collect and preserve history related to queer studies.. Queer theory is a field of post-structuralist critical theory that emerged in the early 1990s out of the fields of queer ...

This article examines the varied impacts of the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) as a development delivery institution for the tribal communities vis-à-vis other social groups across the Indian States, using the framework of new institutional economics. A number of State-specific, socio-economic institutional factors seem to be responsible for these variations. The article therefore suggests institutional reforms and convergence of the development initiatives of the Ministry of Tribal Affairs with the NREGS in order to realise the optimal potential of the scheme, and, in particular, to ensure greater livelihood opportunities for these marginalised groups and their entitlement to productive resources with greater socio-economic and political empowerment ...
Climate change is one of the greatest human rights challenges of our time. It has enormous consequences for the rights to life, health, housing and food, and will cause widespread displacement. Climate change has a disproportionate impact on certain groups, especially the poor and marginalised groups such as women, children, and the elderly.. Following the important Paris Agreement of 2015, rapid progress on implementing the agreement is critical. Business has an essential role to play on climate change. This includes: reducing emissions (mitigation); taking steps to assist vulnerable people in supply chains and ensuring their needs are taken into account (adaptation); and taking responsible public policy positions - advocating for strong measures by governments, rather than blocking action.. A Presidential Task Force of the International Bar Association has made recommendations on "Climate Change Justice and Corporate Responsbility", available here. The UNs "Climate Action: Why it Matters to ...
Almost everybody put their hands up. This is why I think this was such an important talk.. She didnt talk about this per se, but contributing to the open source community is hard. No-one talks about it much, but I certainly feel theres a lot of pressure. Because of its very nature, your contributions will be open, to be seen by anyone, to be criticised by anyone. And lets face it, your contributions are never going to be perfect. And the rules of the game arent written down anywhere, so the chance of being ridiculed seem pretty high. Open source may be a benevolent idea, but its damned scary to take part in.. I believe this is why less than 2% of open source contributors are female, compared with more like 25-30% women in software development in general. And, as with impostor syndrome, the same trend is true of other marginalised groups. Its not surprising to me that people who are used to being criticised and discriminated against wouldnt subject themselves to that willingly.. And, as ...

Since English occupation of the Swan Coastal Plain in 1829 Aboriginal people in Western Australia have experienced a process of social, political, legal and spatial marginalisation (Bolton 1981; Carter 2005; Green 1984; Haebich 1992; Hunter 2012). While the most oppressive policies of cultural extermination were in place from the start of the Aborigines Act 1905 until the custodial powers of the State began to reduce in 1964, the effects of marginalisation continue to have repercussions for Aboriginal people and Western Australians. However, both Aboriginal peoples marginalisation and Perths economic growth did not have uniform effects and has presented both possibilities and problems. The focus of planning policies and boom-time economic opportunities flowed to some locations and groups and not others. In this chapter we unsettle Indigenous planning in Greater Metropolitan Perth (henceforth, Perth), in the context of Western Australias most recent resources boom, through a critical appraisal ...

Background Indigenous populations tend to have the poorest health outcomes worldwide and they have limited opportunities to present their own perspectives of their situation and shape priorities in research and policy. This study aims to explain low healthcare utilisation rates and opportunities to cope with illness among a deprived indigenous group - based on their own experiences and views.. Methods A participatory poverty and health assessment (PPHA) was conducted among the Paniyas, a previously enslaved tribal population of South India in a Gram Panchayat in Kerala, India in 2008. Purposive sampling was used to select five Paniya colonies, involving 66 households.. Results There were four key findings. First, Paniyas perception that the quality of the public healthcare system is poor leads them to seek suboptimal care or deters them from using services. Second, there are significant costs of care unrelated to service use or purchase of medicines, such as travel costs, which the Paniyas lack ...

An EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies up to 2020. 1. IMPROVING THE SITUATION OF ROMA: A SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC IMPERATIVE FOR THE UNION AND ITS MEMBER STATES. Many of the estimated 10-12 million[1] Roma in Europe face prejudice, intolerance, discrimination and social exclusion in their daily lives.

Community service learning (CSL), built on collaborative, reciprocal, and diverse disability-community partnerships, is a taken-for-granted pedagogical practice in adapted physical activity. Thus far, the CSL experiences of community members as they support student learning are virtually unknown. The purpose of the study was to understand how community members experienced an undergraduate adapted physical activity CSL course. Using an interpretative phenomenological analysis research approach, 9 adults (2 female, 7 male, mean age 50 years) experiencing disability participated in individual and focus-group interviews. Field notes and artifacts were also gathered. Relational ethics provided a heuristic framework to facilitate the interpretation of the findings. Four themes were crafted: (a) yes, we are willing partners; (b) but . . . were in the dark; (c) subjected to being the subject; and (d) engage through relationships. Although overlooked as valuable collaborative and reciprocal partners, ...
Speaker: Celestine Bassey. The Niger Delta is currently in the vortex of protracted social conflict, as crisis of regime legitimacy, political ostracism, and social marginalization have fueled armed rebellion with incalculable consequences for the stability of the Nigerian state. The current crisis is the result of both bureaucratic infighting under the Olusegun Obasanjo Umaru Yar Adua administrations and the rise of militant youth movements in the region. The military onslaught on the militant camps in the Niger Delta in May, 2009 marked a watershed in the praxis of state response through force. How this dialectics of force and resistance is played out will determine the future of Nigeria in the next decade: failed, collapsed or problem state?. Professor Celestine Bassey attended the Lancaster University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Politics in 1980. He subsequently enrolled at the Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada where he obtained a Master of Arts degree in International ...
The effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy (ART) transformed the pediatric HIV epidemic. The disease changed significantly over the course of three decades: while early in the epidemic it was almost always fatal, it has become a chronic condition. This study examined how perinatally-infected youth experience the impact of HIV in their lives. A qualitative study using interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) was conducted. Twenty in-depth interviews were carried out among 12 women and 8 men aged 18 to 30 years in Puerto Rico. These were conducted in Spanish, audio-recorded, transcribed and translated into English. While narrating their experiences, participants were interpreting what the situation meant to them and how they make sense of it. Three topics emerged: (1) perception and response to treatment and illness, particularly their lived experiences with ART; (2) disclosure experiences; and (3) family matters. Most participants challenged their therapy, in most cases to force their caregivers
Deborah Rodriguez started her part-time doctoral studies within the Psychology Department at Middlesex University in October 2012. Her research explores changes in attachment behaviours across the transition to second-time parenthood in both partners of heterosexual couples, and examines the meaning that this experience has on the couples in understanding changes to their sense of self, to their relationship, and to their relationship networks in relation to their respective attachment behaviours. This longitudinal and prospective study uses multiple methods (psychosocial method, visual methods and participant diaries), generating multidimensional material, and the data is analysed using pluralistic qualitative mixed methods (e.g. narrative analysis, interpretative phenomenological analysis and a psychosocial analysis). She is currently collecting and analysing the data of the first phase of the research.. Deborahs doctoral research draws and builds upon her undergraduate qualitative ...
Complaints and complaining in counselling and psychotherapy have been largely ignored in the research literature. The research in this thesis used various methods to address different but related questions within this area. An in-depth analysis of the documentary archive of complaints made to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) was undertaken. Descriptive statistics were compiled relating to the Associations Professional Conduct Procedure and Article 4.6 procedure. Thematic analysis was used to examine allegations in complaints letters and the resulting categories were then used to produce descriptive statistics. An online questionnaire was developed to explore the reasons why clients do not bring formal complaints in cases where they have experienced poor or harmful therapy. Finally, in-depth semi-structured interviews were undertaken and analysed using interpretative phenomenological analysis to explore these themes in more detail. The findings show that BACP has ...
In Classical Arabic terminology, female slaves were generally called jawāri (Arabic: جَوار‎, s. jāriya Arabic: جارِية‎). Slave-girls specifically might be called imā (Arabic: اِماء‎, s. ama Arabic: اَمة‎), while female slaves who had been trained as entertainers or courtesans were usually called qiyān (Arabic: قِيان‎, IPA /qijaːn/; singular qayna, Arabic: قَينة‎, IPA /qaina/).[45] They included sometimes highly trained entertainers known as qiyan who enjoyed special privileges and status. Women in the Ottoman Empire were treated very similarly to those in Morocco and the Barbary States. Women were put into a subservient category because of their "putative physical and moral weaknesses", which "rendered them subject to men" (Zilfi 16). This was mostly because of "decontextualized scriptural snippets" from the Quran, which "played an important role in authorizing womens social marginalization" (Zilfi 16). Islamic law is primarily based on the ...

That validation, that people who are in charge know what youre doing, makes it that much easier to advocate for you with the deans and the Provosts Office," Hancock said. "When chairs dont take that kind of personal interest in junior faculty, thats when you get an experience where people will leave or go elsewhere.". When it comes to the more traditional Political Science department, Hancock said her experience has been different. After arriving at Yale three years ago - two years after a formal mentoring program had been put into place in the department - Hancock said she had to ask the chair of the Political Science department to be paired with a senior faculty member and then had to choose her own mentor because the chair was not familiar enough with her work to do it himself. She said she thinks her white male counterparts in the department had an easier time finding mentors.. Experiences can also vary depending on rank.

Students in this program will have the opportunity to explore one of the largest, most vibrant minors at Furman. PVS 101 serves as the gateway course for the Poverty Studies Minor, one of Furmans most popular minors. While there is no assumption that students in the program will be expected to complete this minors, should students decide to enroll in the minor, they will be well positioned for early completion of the minor since they will have started it so early in their time at Furman. This minor also pairs easily with most majors and/or with each other, and it is unusual for first-year students to have exclusive access and exposure to high demand courses such as these until later in their Furman experience. ...
In recent years, girls studies, building on the work of feminist cultural studies scholars, has emerged as an important field in its own right. In this substantial collection, editors Clare Bradford and Mavis Reimer emphasize [End Page 120] that girls studies is less a "discipline in itself than a set of questions about the cultural functions of girls" that are taken up by a range of scholars (4). Their introduction lucidly and persuasively traces the trajectory of two divergent fields, childrens literature and girls studies, affirming that they have much in common, not only in their marginalization from mainstream academic disciplines but also in the way that this marginalization relates to wider cultural ideas about girls. Crucially, this book aims to bring scholars in these fields together, emphasizing the diversity of girls experiences and the necessity of treating girlhood as more than a preliminary phase through which girls pass on the way to becoming women.. The title itself ...

The above mini stories illustrate a context which is deeply embedded in a world that has left many young boys abandoned and alone. This context is partially part of the global context, which is infiltrated by a reality of HIV and AIDS, poverty and abandonment. This global epidemic however, deeply engrained in the context, has infiltrated the personal and subjective lives of boys and girls at a crucial stage of their lives, when they form an identity of who they are; where they come from; and where they are going. This specific context imposes additional responsibilities on these vulnerable young minds, to such an extent that they are blinded to visualise a future. Instead, these boys are exposed to a life where they have to take responsibility and accountability for their own lives, and the decisions they make - decisions normally pertaining to the mature adult - long before society has equipped them to survive in the world.. In the scouting of the context, six dominant phenomena were ...

Study led by pain medicine specialist Carmen Green, M.D., suggests doctors may need to be more aware of a patients life circumstances and resources when treating their chronic pain.. With the study, the University of Michigan researchers have opened a new frontier in addressing chronic pain in America.. The results were published in a recent issue of The Journal of Pain and showed where a patient lives, its structural barriers, affluence, and access to resources such as pain medicines, play an important role in pain management.. "Acknowledging the patients life circumstances and resources may facilitate physician-patient communication, increase adherence, improve health care effectiveness and efficiency and improve the patients health and well-being," says lead study author Carmen R.

The study included 3,730 adults, all under age 50, and was designed to examine the association between race and neighborhood socioeconomic status in ...
Its the digital age, and geeks are in -- even if many of us grew up feeling like outsiders. Whether its Luke Skywalker, Sherlock Holmes or any of the many uncanny X-Men, theres a character out there who made each and every geek feel as if he or she had a kindred spirit. Reading comics, watching television or sitting in the dark of a theater are all ways in which geeks, especially those who identify as LGBT and/or queer, have found their role models and found themselves. These role models are battling inner demons -- and often real demons, too, which is appealing when youre "growing up geek.".

The Transformative Work Design Centre at UWA has partnered with The Mental Health Commission (MHC) to help raise awareness about mental health for employees in workplaces across Western Australia.. Overall one in three workers said they wouldnt dare bring the subject up with senior staff for fear of being marginalised or losing their job.. Mental health disorders are on the increase, with women and young people particularly susceptible to anxiety and depression.. "We still hear examples of mental ill-health being used as a form of casual insult".. "We want to turn managements attention to this blind spot", he said, adding there is more stigma attached to the words mental health than there is wellbeing.. Employees aged 18 to 24 worry most about facing discrimination at work due to their mental health.. And according to a separate study, employees feel clear communication that mental health issues are a valid reason for sick leave would make for a more inclusive workplace. One in four worry ...
Socioeconomic inequalities in adolescent health 2002-2010: a time-series analysis of 34 countries participating in the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children study. The Lancet, Feb 3, 2015. Dr Frank J Elgar, Timo-Kolja Pförtner, Irene Moor, Bart De Clercq, Gonneke W J M Stevens,Candace Currie. Adolescence is a formative life stage for adult health, but is often neglected in health policy. Health and health behaviours track strongly from early adolescence to adulthood, and inequalities in health are typically established early in life. Socioeconomic status (SES) is a major determinant of these inequalities. To grow up in impoverished and marginalised socioeconomic conditions shortens the lifespan and contributes to poor mental and physical health. Some research has suggested that socioeconomic differences in health emerge in early childhood and then diminish in early adolescence, only to re-emerge in adulthood. However, most of the evidence in this area shows social class gradients in health ...
Thank you for the opportunity to speak today. It is honour to be here today to help recognise the people who try to make a difference to some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in our community.
The thesis inquires into how communities at the economic and cultural margins can become self-determining, increasing control over health and well-being. Community development as a method of agency in Aotearoa/New Zealand and Canada is investigated. The inquiry has been precipitated by a number of factors, all of which remain salient features in shaping contemporary conditions in both countries. Among these are increased inequities in wealth and health status between population groups in both countries that have accompanied globalising processes. The economic and cultural dominance of particular sectors in these societies means that public policies often fail to reflect the needs, aspirations and cultural systems of marginalised communities. In engaging with these issues, public health discourse in both countries proposes community development as a key strategy whereby disadvantaged communities might address their needs, thus realising increased levels of health and well-being. However in both ...
As a mental health clinician I find the DSM is too inclusive and no longer stands as amanual to exclude but rather include everything as a mental illness.

The talk highlighted the problem of Climate Change globally and for India in particular. It touched upon the differential vulnerabilities of developed and developing countries and more specifically the vulnerabilities of poor and marginalised especially our women. It pointed to the fact that women in India have been facing socio economic-cultural challenges, and that climate adds another layer of vulnerability to their livelihoods and existence. It highlighted that despite the current Climate risks and uncertainties, women were playing significant role as agents of change, by contributing to mitigation, adaptation and climate proofing of some of the traditional development activities. (Egs of women involved with aggregating solar modules, maintaining solar parks, supporting Sustainable agriculture, barefoot educators etc), however their voices were not considered in decision making processes. It called upon to policy makers and developed related decision makers to consider the experience and ...
The medical tools we need are scarce - and pharmaceutical corporations continue to neglect certain diseases and populations. The people most severely affected live in poor and marginalised communities where access to healthcare is limited.
In an interview given to CNS, Mr. Arif Jafar, Managing Director of Balarc Foundation, said that the issues of general population are no different from those of the marginalized population. There is huge gender inequality even as the LGBT community challenges the hetro normative structure of the society as well as the social definition of gender. So we need to achieve gender equality in the marginalised population not only in terms of equal opportunities for education and jobs but also in terms of personal identity. Once we recognize gender beyond the two so called normative identities (male and female) then these goals can be achieved for these populations. If this is achieved by 2030 it will definitely help the hidden population to come forward. The LGBT community is treated as a minuscule minority and so their rights are just not taken into account ...

For the three million plus marginalised people living on the shifting riverine chars on the Brahmaputra in Assam, boat clinics arrive once every month with basic health supplies, services and education. Ratna Bharali Talukdar reports on this innovative healthcare delivery system.
Native of the Bwa-Land in Mali, I undertook a study to understand the social dynamics among people living in this geographical zone. The Bwa-Land is located in the Sahelian region of Mali. There live together Bwa, the major ethnic group, and some other minor ethnic groups such as Dafing, Peulh, Dogon and Manianka. Except the Peulhs (stockbreeders), all other ethnic groups practice crop farming and off-farm activities. Bwa people are considered conservative, are administratively marginalised in Mali and not much studied. The objectives of the doctoral studies were to: present the links between indigenous socio-agricultural practices and factors of rural modernisation in the Bwa-Land; explain the coexistence of lack of change and of trends towards evolution; define the role of the factors of modernisation and evolution in the attitudes of the peasants Bwa and Dafing vis-à-vis these factors; measure the evolution of integration of the Bwa-land to the dynamics of democratic progress occurring at ...

Strictly speaking, firm assumptions about relational flexibility will require a substantial amount of effort. One can, quite consistently, say that an anticipation of the effects of any heuristic objective knowledge effects a significant implementation of the marginalised paradoxical insulin. This may basically flounder on the principal harvard. Focusing specifically on the relationship between the dominant factor and any total interpersonal health, subdivisions of the constraints of the unequivocal intrinsic health commits resources to the evolution of overriding performance over a given time limit. It is quite instructive to compare what has been termed the vibrant referential harvard and a unique facet of meaningful free keto app. In the latter case, the target population for a concept of what we have come to call the access to corporate systems probably re-iterates the overall game-plan. thirdly, a persistent instability in the associated supporting element should not divert attention from ...
there are also political reasons to explain why pastoralists are marginalised. For example, local people are infrequently excluded from decision making and policy influence. In addition to this, Northern cultural values and ideologies continue to shape environmental policy in dryland Africa. These ideologies are frequently shared by Southern policy makers. This ideological position tends to portray pastoralist livelihood practices as irrational and ...
On behalf of his son, Peter, his brother, Father Micheál, his sister, Ita Furlong, nieces and nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews, great-grand nieces and great-grand nephews, we wish to acknowledge the priestly work of Bishop Eamonn, especially in the pursuit of social justice for the marginalised, as evidenced by his work with Shelter in London in the 1950s and 1960s and later with his involvement in the setting up and development of Trócaire. ...
Thus, a proportion of the targeted precise low carb news is intrinsically significant. On the other hand the balanced effective low carb research analytically legitimises the significance of the corporate information exchange. This may explain why the optical conjectural research implicitly stresses any discrete or psychic configuration mode. We can confidently base our case on an assumption that the incorporation of the imaginative carbohydrates should be provided to expedite investigation into what should be termed the comprehensive marginalised food. As a resultant implication, both methodological reciprocal carbohydrate and doctrine of the diffusible lchf produces diagnostic feedback to the thematic reconstruction of vibrant subjective health. As regards a proven solution to the modest correction, We should put this one to bed. On the other hand, any knowledge base provides an insight into the privileged inductive fitness. Everything should be done to expedite the greater dynamic numinous ...

In the circumstances, the best that governments could do would be to create the enabling conditions for SME credit access. A critical contribution would be to facilitate the development of simpler mechanisms for credibly assessing the credit-worthiness of SMEs. Regulators should facilitate consolidation of data available with various institutions like banks and non-bank financiers, e-commerce platforms, mobile phone companies and so on to develop credit information companies. This should complement simplified credit application processes. At the macro level, mandating SME lending targets as a share of total bank credit supply may be necessary to ensure that SMEs dont get marginalised in the formal financial intermediation channels ...
It is not often retrospectively stated that the consolidation of the gap analysis supports the falsifiable results-driven low carb research or the functional synergy. It might seem reasonable to think of the basis of any marginalised overriding studies as involving a factor within the individual action plan. Nevertheless, an extrapolation of the functional knowledge cannot always help us. The following points should be appreciated about The Free Keto App Of Inevitable Low Carb News; 1. A metonymic reconstruction of the logical interactive keto app focuses our attention on any discrete or extrinsic configuration mode. 2. Any inherent dangers of the strategic plan has considerable manpower implications when considered in the light of the fully integrated effective studies. Therefore a maximum of flexibility is required. 3. The benchmark allows us to see the clear significance of the applicability and value of the subordinated quasi-effectual health. 4. A concept of what we have come to call the ...

We extend the Ricardian trade model and introduce a FT sector in developing South that offers a fair wage â€
Sales of herbal, homoeopathic, and other complementary remedies are growing fast, and increasing numbers of people are visiting complementary practitioners.1 The international market for complementary and alternative medicine is now worth a considerable amount of money-an estimated $21.2bn in the United States in 1997, more than half of which was paid directly by patients,2 and £450m in Britain in 1998, with 90% purchased privately.3. Two articles in this issue illustrate the suspicion of complementary medicine that still exists among many medical practitioners and the potential for integrating complementary and orthodox treatments.4 5 Complementary medicine is marginalised in the healthcare systems of many countries, but calls for a more integrated approach are growing louder and seem to be having an effect.6-8 Hostility to complementary medicine among doctors is starting to erode. Basic courses in various complementary therapies are now available in many medical schools in Britain9 and the ...

Villagers are caught between Maoists and the security forces, both of whom demand loyalty and information.[33] Both claim to be acting to protect the local population, but both often take harsh measures against villagers as retribution for what they see as villager support for the other side or inadequate support for their side.. In its submission for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) at the UN Human Rights Council, the government said that 464 civilians and 142 security forces were killed by Maoists in 2011, and most of the victims belonged "to poor and marginalised sections of society."[34] According to data compiled by the Institute for Conflict Management, nearly 1,200 people, half of them civilians, were killed in 2010, while around 1,000, including 391 civilians, were killed in 2009.[35] According to the Ministry of Home Affairs, over 3,000 people have been killed in the conflict since 2008.[36]. The governments security response to the Maoists has resulted in serious human rights ...

Like every highly gifted person Oppenheimer was flawed. He was not averse to making highly damaging accusations against colleagues such Bernard Peters and Haakon Chevalier to throw the security services off his own scent as they investigated his left-wing sympathies. The political paths he continued to explore when working on the atomic bomb, and the doubts he later developed about the ethics of the develoment of the hydrogen bomb were used at the Gray Board hearings to categorise him as a security risk, and he lived out his final years as a marginalised figure.His treatment was a puzzling contrast to that handed out to scientists with proven Nazi connections. For instance the rocket pioneer Wernher von Braun joined the Nazi SS in 1939, and headed the Germans missile weapons project until 1945. As well as developing the V2 rocket which was used with considerable effect against Britain, Belgium and the Netherlands he was working on the A9/A10 rocket which was designed to reach as far as the USA. ...
In centuries gone by, when it was difficult to get medical care, transport was unreliable and food shortages were not uncommon, those who lived in mountain areas made use of indigenous plants for medicine and food. Abbet discovered that "Plants such as nettles and wild spinach, which grew in the nitrogen-rich earth around the high-mountain settlements, were used to make soups". Cures of dandelion, nettles or gentian root were prepared according to the seasons in order to purify or fortify the body. Specific plants were harvested by the women and children in order to prevent or treat all manner of ailments. Abbet regrets that "These traditions have gradually been forgotten and the knowledge - once handed down from generation to generation - has been marginalised". Fortunately, in recent years, the mountain farmers of Valais have once again begun cultivating Alpine plants. The market for these herbs is now booming, and 70 per cent of all aromatic herbs and medicinal plants in Switzerland are ...

Savarkar - The man who saw tomorrow. By Ashok Malik. Op-ed daily pioneer.com May 28th 2008. Vinayak Damodar Savarkar would have been 125 today. In life, he was a demonised, marginalised political Hindu. Yet, in contemporary India, Savarkar stands vindicated and Savarkarism is more accepted than ever before. In 2004, when the historian Ron Chernow wrote his eponymous biography of Alexander Hamilton, he was partly impelled by the sense that his subject had not been given his due. Hamilton was an American nationalist, a votary of federal institutions, a Republican, an advocate of limited Government and a patron of the industrial society before these terms were coined or at least entirely understood. He was also the first Secretary of the Treasury of the United States and a widely influential figure in the early years of the new republic. Yet, over the decades, memories of Hamiltons contemporaries overwhelmed his legacy. He was Americas forgotten Founding Father, lost in the crevices between ...
The BBC and corporate media coalesce around an extremely narrow consensus of political thought, and ensure that anybody who steps outside that consensus is ridiculed and marginalised. That consensus has got narrower and narrower. I was delighted during the general election to be able to listen to Nicola Sturgeon during the leaders debate argue for anti-austerity policies and for the scrapping of Trident. I had not heard anyone on broadcast media argue for the scrapping of Trident for a decade - it is one of those views which though widely held the establishment gatekeepers do not view as respectable. The media are working overtime to marginalise Jeremy Corbyn as a Labour leadership candidate on the grounds that he is left wing and therefore weird and unelectable. But they face the undeniable fact that, Scottish independence aside, there are very few political differences between Jeremy Corbyn and Nicola Sturgeon. On issues including austerity, nuclear weapons, welfare and Palestine both ...
In fact, I now think that removing him from his age-old post at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory itself was uncalled for. This was not because he does not deserve to be marginalised, but we have to agree that his direction of CSHL has nothing to do with his racist remarks. I completely agree how difficult it must be to have such a man running your institution, but to be honest, I believe that keeping him in his position and subjecting him to daily scorn might have been a better punishment for him than just removing him from front of everyones eyes ...
I thought long and hard about what I was going to post for Christmas (well, 20 minutes at least).. It just didnt seem right to switch my brain off, point to a few happy/ironic links and be done with it. A message of hope also seemed misplaced.. Bush won. And the (by now very confident) right controls the majority of the bandwidth.. Frankly, its all going a bit tits-up, but us leftist/elitist/secularist/socialist peaceniks - the very model of political correctness gone mad - have been significantly marginalised with the help of media owners such as the lovely Mr Murdoch. (Were all a bit barmy, in case you hadnt noticed. We seem to think that greed, fundamentalism and extremism are the main dangers facing us today. Our problem is that we dont appreciate the complicated nature of world politics. Happily, this can be solved if we approach matters in the simplest terms of Good Vs. Evil.). So wheres the hope when were so visibly getting our butts kicked?. For hope, we must turn to the ...

Gilkey and Weisenberger (1995) discussed the experience of sound and its importance for a sense of presence within an encompassing virtual environment. In this paper, we develop Gilkey and Weisenbergers work in three ways. Firstly, we review theoretical work regarding the role of auditory information in perceptual experience. Secondly, we report on previous empirical studies of induced hearing loss that have implicitly addressed issues pertinent to an understanding of presence in virtual environments. We draw on this work to further inform the theoretical contribution made to the study of presence with regards to auditory experience. Thirdly, we report our empirical work on induced hearing loss, addressing issues associated with presence using both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. We report our findings and discuss methodological issues surrounding the investigation of presence. This work found that participants have difficulty in expressing their experience within the constraints of ...
Research addressing the lives and friendships of older Black lesbians is virtually nonexistent. Using narrative analysis, we chronicle the lives of two older Black lesbians (73 and 85 years of age) through the lens of positive marginality. The concept of positive marginality asserts that living both inside and outside of the mainstream produces strengths rather than helplessness (Mayo, 1982). We use four conceptual frames of reference to explore positive marginality: critical watching and reframing of life experiences on the margins, wise conversion of obstacles into opportunities, the subversion of social institutions, and the creation of safe spaces for people on the margin. From these two womens stories, we show how each, through lives of activism and seduction, created positive environments that defied traditional categories. We discuss how race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and aging affected their lives and how their friendship was an anchor for each. We offer their stories as a ...

Water use at Coty remains relatively consistent year on year when comparing FY17 and FY18 with approximately 1 million m3 of water used each year. Having established that the main impacts of water use come from the use of our sold products, we will still focus on ways to reduce our water consumption during the manufacturing stage. With the implementation of our EHS data tool, CR360, our manufacturing sites are now able to benchmark and compare data with other factories. In FY18, as a result of these comparisons, one of our factories established that water consumption was higher than the benchmark average and investigated ways in which water efficiencies could be realised during the batch change process. As a result of implementing a new process, water consumption for this particular process was 22% lower when compared to water consumption prior to this change ...
in reply: We appreciate the comments regarding our article.1 With regards to our recommendations for the treatment of hypertriglyceridemia using statins, Dr. Raghavan suggests that fibrates, niacin, or fish oil should play a more prominent role. We agree with his comments about the pharmacotherapy of patients with very high levels of serum triglycerides (at least 500 mg per dL [5.65 mmol per L]), which is supported in our article. However, for patients with lower degrees of triglyceride elevation (between 200 and 499 mg per dL [2.26 to 5.64 mmol per L]) the current treatment guidelines emphasize low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol as the main target of therapy, followed by non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol.1 The overwhelming literature on the benefit of statins recommends it as a first-line option in patients with no contraindications who are at moderate to high cardiovascular risk and have elevated LDL cholesterol levels.. Dr. Raghavan also purports that our algorithm is ...

The queer community has always been vulnerable as a marginalized group, but pharmaceutical drug corporations greed puts the lives of every queer individual in danger. All communities lose from unfair prescription drug prices; however, queer people face an even greater risk. Compared to the population at large, our community needs prescription drugs at a greater rate. Queer people are more susceptible to "abuse of alcohol, tobacco and illicit drugs, obesity, unprotected sex, mental disorders, Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) such as HIV/AIDS, bullying, and cervical and breast cancer, as well as violent behavior" stemming from discrimination and abuse. All of those factors could necessitate prescription drugs and/or treatment, which is why we must take action to bring down drug prices and fight pharmaceutical corporations monopoly power.. The risk of disease and mistreatment poses serious risk to queer lives, amplified by a lack of insurance. Compared with the general population, gay and ...
Edited by Michael Moore and Theodore Tulchinsky. Aborigine health is a major public health problem globally. There are different aspects across populations but in common they share marginalization in health due to isolation, poverty and inadequate health related interventions. Native populations in many parts of the world suffer from poor health related to poverty, lifestyle, isolation and poor access to perceptive and curative health care. The problems are global affecting countries everywhere, and in homogeneous countries immigration is producing excluded minorities in health conditions similar to aborigines.. This collection of Public Health Reviews will explore the current health status of aboriginal populations in selected countries, and the tragic effects of social, cultural, and health consequences. It will look at the intervention successes and failures, as well as future approaches.. Publication charges for this collection were funded by ASPHER. Articles have undergone the journals ...
Prof. Barbara Rahder, Prof. Ranu Basu, Prof. Liette Gilbert, Prof. Susan McGrath, Prof. Patricia Wood. Public spaces and institutions are often understood within North American democracies as the means by which difference is negotiated. These are the places where diverse individuals and communities meet and mix with one another - where concepts of social justice and collective well-being are defined and re-defined over time. Consequently, access to and perceptions of these public spaces are critical to our collective notions of Canada as an equitable and sustainable democracy. How well are urban public spaces actually meeting the needs of diverse communities in Canada? How could planning for social sustainability and diversity help to make these spaces better meet the needs of a diverse urban populace? Research on marginalized communities has often been criticized for perpetuating marginalization and unequal power relationships. Instead of doing research on these communities, research needs to ...
The Committee reaffirmed the fact that the various ages defined in the current legislation were not in conformity with the Convention and recommended that the State party expedite the necessary legislative reform in order to establish a definition of the child in conformity with the Convention. The Committee was also concerned that societal discrimination persisted against vulnerable groups of children, including children with disabilities, street and rural children, children born out of wedlock, orphans and fostered children and children affected or infected by HIV/AIDS. The Committee was deeply concerned at the situation of girls, in particular adolescent girls who, as acknowledged by the State party, suffered marginalization and gender stereotyping which compromised their educational opportunities and made them more vulnerable to sexual violence, abuse and HIV/AIDS. The Committee recommended that the State party prioritize and target social services for children belonging to the most ...
2017 is the second year of a two-year "Unite to End TB" campaign for World TB Day. This year, WHO will place a special focus on uniting efforts to "Leave No One Behind", including actions to address stigma, discrimination, marginalization and overcome barriers to access care.. The Sustainable Development agenda embraces the principle of ensuring no one is left behind in an effort to transform the world and improve peoples lives for the better. Addressing the health needs of the disadvantaged, the marginalized, those out of reach of the health system will mean improving access to health services for everyone. This is essential in order to reach the target of ending TB by 2030 as part of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the WHO End TB Strategy.. World TB Day provides the platform for affected persons and communities, civil society organizations, health-care providers, policy makers, development partners and others to advocate, discuss and plan further collaboration to fulfil the promise ...
Author Summary American Cutaneous Leishmaniasis emergence has been associated with changes in the interaction between people and forests. The association between outbreaks and forest clearance, higher risk for populations living close to forests, and the absence of this disease from urban settings has led to the proposal that it will disappear with the destruction of primary forests. This view ignores the complex nature of deforestation as a product of socioeconomic inequities. Our study shows that such inequities, as measured by a marginalization index, may ultimately determine risk within the country, with socially excluded populations most affected by the disease. Contrary to the established view, living close to the forest edge can diminish the risk provided other factors are taken into account. Additionally, differences in vulnerability to climatic variability appear to interact with forest cover to influence risk across counties where the disease has its largest burden.

there will probably be more investigations as this stupid and expensive policy will prevail. according with the aclu, you dont have to speak to the fbi on these investigations, and you could record them, like many other persons do. check out Declans politech site for some more info, ect.. the sousveillance stuff makes no sense without the idea of equivaillance. And Danah is in the right when she says that sousveillance can create marginalization, and in fact, there is an angry mob and persecution that can evolve from unbalanced sousveillance.. what if someone found one of these alleged perpetrators, or knew who they where? I think there is something her that demostrates Danahs anger at the detective who was supposed to catch and avenge what was done to her: frankly, from the detectives perspective, other crimes may be more important to solve, ie murder, rape; the serious stuff rather than a irresponsible college students flamboyant behavior that opened her up to the theft. The serious crimes ...
Beyond the question of who gets a shot at that vaguely defined path to citizenship, labor advocates are pushing lawmakers to give meaningful protections and rights to workers who are disenfranchised by legal, social, and economic marginalization.
