Neighbourhood characteristics affect the social and economic opportunities of their residents. While a number of studies have analysed housing adjustments at different life stages, little is known about neighbourhood quality adjustments. Based on a model of optimal housing consumption we analyse the determinants of residential mobility and the neighbourhood quality adjustments made by those who move, drawing on data from the British Household Panel Survey and Indices of Multiple Deprivation. We measure neighbourhood quality both subjectively and objectively and find that not all life-course events that trigger moves lead to neighbourhood quality adjustments. Single people are negatively affected by leaving the parental home and couples by a husband s unemployment. Couples having a new baby move into better neighbourhoods.. ...
It has long been posited by scientists that we need to have a better understanding in the role that larger contextual factors -- like neighborhood quality and the built environment -- may have on the nations obesity crisis. This paper explores whether maternal perceptions of neighborhood quality affect childrens bodyweight outcomes, and whether racial and ethnic differences in such perceptions may explain any of the hitherto unexplained gap in bodyweight and obesity prevalence among Whites and minorities. The project uses data from the NLSY79 and the CoNLSY datasets. Results indicate that overall neighborhood quality is not significantly related to childrens bodyweight. However, one particular characteristic, namely whether or not the mother believes there is enough police protection in the neighborhood, is related. Lack of police protection has robust and significant effects on the BMI-percentile of the children, though it has less robust effects on the risk of becoming obese per se. ...
This multicenter reproducibility study has defined 7H9 broth microdilution MIC QC ranges for commonly used anti-TB drugs, using the M. tuberculosis reference strain H37Rv. The study employed a consensus methodology devised by experienced M. tuberculosis investigators from various geographically separate laboratories, in accordance with CLSI guidance (8, 10).. To our knowledge, MIC ranges for TB drugs have not previously been established for the M. tuberculosis reference strain H37Rv in a tier-2 study. One study assessed 7H9 broth microdilution for DST of common anti-TB drugs but did not report the actual MIC values (13). However, similar MIC distributions have been reported for the same reference strain between different liquid culture systems, with MIC variability of a 2-fold dilution or less (5). Studies using 7H10 agar or Bactec MGIT 960 and Bactec 460 determined MICs against H37Rv of 0.5 μg/ml for ofloxacin, 0.125 μg/ml for moxifloxacin, 0.25 μg/ml for levofloxacin, 2 μg/ml for ...
The Project aims to establish the benefits that people derive from green areas in European towns and cities. The objective is to advance the planning and design of all types of urban green space.". Rationale for the project. Many European towns and cities possess attractive parks and recreational areas. The Greenspace project will develop methodologies that identify the types and variety of open and green space that best satisfy peoples needs. Using case studies, it will demonstrate how public participation can be brought into the strategic planning of "greenspace" on a continuing basis.. Greenspace makes an essential contribution to the quality of life of urban residents. It provides a recreational resource, a peaceful retreat, a medium for social interaction, safe and exciting play areas for children, a reserve habitat for urban wildlife, and an attractive backdrop to built developments. Yet greenspace is often seen as a lower priority than many other local or central government ...
Background Concerns about loss of greenspace with urbanisation motivate much research on nature and health; however, contingency of greenspace-health associations on the character of community change remains understudied.. Methods With aggregate data from governmental sources for 1432 Swedish parishes, we used negative binomial regression to estimate incidence rate ratios (IRRs) for all-cause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality during 2000-2008 in relation to percentage area (in 2000) of urban residential greenspace, urban parks and rural greenspace, looking across parishes with decrease, stability or increase in population density. We also assessed interactions between land use and population change.. Results Parishes with ,1 decile increase in population density had lower incidence of all-cause (IRR=0.91, 95% CI 0.87 to 0.95) and CVD mortality (IRR=0.89, 95% CI 0.84 to 0.94) compared with parishes with stable populations. In stable parishes, all-cause mortality was lower with higher ...
Several studies have shown both the increased risk for death following MI for people with COPD and differences in management. These studies specifically showed reduced use of secondary prevention and pPCI after a STEMI in patients with COPD,5 ,10 ,16-18 these findings have been replicated here. This study has also shown that these differences in treatment are possible explanations for some of the mortality gap at the population level for both STEMIs and non-STEMIs. In particular, we were able to make use of the detailed timing variables available in MINAP to investigate differences in time to reperfusion after a STEMI.. For STEMIs, we found that diagnosis of MI is more likely to be delayed for patients with COPD compared with non-COPD patients, and that time to reperfusion is longer after a STEMI. We also showed that the effect of delay in diagnosis of MI on the time to reperfusion was greater in patients with COPD compared with non-COPD patients. Patients with COPD were more likely to have a ...
This multicentre & multicountry study is open and has 2 study groups at Visits 1 and 3 (HibMenC and LicMenC). An additional control group in the UK at the time of the second year follow-up for persistence (subjects aged 40-43 months primed with MenC conjugate and Hib vaccines in infancy with no subsequent booster dose, group NoBoost at Visit 2). These subjects will receive a Hib catch-up vaccine at 40-43 months of age. The subjects of groups HibMenC and LicMenC were randomized in the primary vaccination study 103974 and will not be further randomized. The subjects of group NoBoost will not be randomized. All subjects at the UK centre will receive Infanrix™-IPV at the second visit (i.e. 24 months after Menitorix™ booster or at 40-43 months of age). In addition, the subjects of group NoBoost will receive a Hib catch-up vaccine (Menitorix™) at the same visit.. Subjects of groups HibMenC and LicMenC will have 3 blood samples taken for immunogenicity analyses: at 12, 24 & 48 months after the ...
Just over one-fifth of the worlds adult population continues to smoke despite significant declines in smoking rates over the past decades.1 Smoking is responsible for the deaths of around 6 million people per year and costs the global economy around US$500 billion annually.1 Smoking cessation programmes are accessible to only 15% of the population globally2 despite more people attempting to quit. Approximately two-thirds of smokers in the USA attempted to quit in 2014,3 11% of male Chinese smokers mainly aged 15-24 years attempted to quit4 and a range of tobacco-control policies have been increasing quit attempts in low-income and middle-income countries.5 We also know that most quit attempts are likely to be unassisted6 and that the reasons for this may relate to personal and societal values of independence and autonomy which influence smokers beliefs and decisions about quitting.7 Mobile phone interventions have become a new but effective way to help smokers quit. A recently updated Cochrane ...
During 2008 to 2013, 215 outbreak alerts, also known as 'urgent inquiries' (UI), for food- and waterborne diseases were launched in Europe, the majority of them (135; 63%) being related to salmonellosis. For 110 (51%) UI, a potential food vehicle of infection was identified, with vegetables being the most reported category (34; 31%). A total of 28% (n = 60) of the outbreaks reported had an international dimension, involving at least two countries (mean: 4; standard deviation: 2; range: 2-14). Participating countries posted 2,343 messages (initial posts and replies, excluding updates), with a median of 11 messages per urgent inquiry (range: 1-28). Of 60 multicountry UI, 50 involved between two and four countries. The UI allowed early detection of multicountry outbreaks, facilitated the identification of the suspected vehicles and consequently contributed to the timely implementation of control measures. The introduction of an epidemic intelligence information system platform in 2010 has

Co-Sponsor(s): Co-sponsored by West Coast Poverty Center. Contrary to the familiar urban-suburban narrative about poverty in the U.S., there are more poor persons living in the suburbs of American cities than in the cities themselves today. Poverty rates have increased dramatically in suburbs over the last 20 years, as has the concentration of poverty in suburbs. The rise of poverty in suburbs, however, has not coincided with a decrease of poverty in cities. In fact, poverty is more prevalent in cities today than in 1990.. Apart from its practical and demographic significance, the changing spatial distribution of poverty in metropolitan America creates new challenges for the delivery of antipoverty assistance and transform safety net politics. This book offers several important original insights into the interconnections between place, poverty, and the safety net in contemporary America using a unique combination of data from the Census Bureau, administrative data from state safety net programs, ...
One in every five children currently lives in poverty, but nearly twice as many experience poverty sometime during childhood. Using 40 years of data, this analysis follows children from birth to age 17, then through their 20s, to examine how childhood poverty and family and neighborhood characteristics relate to achievement in young adulthood, such as completing high school by age 20, enrolling in postsecondary education by age 25, completing a four-year college degree by age 25, and being consistently employed from ages 25 to 30. Parents education achievement, residential stability, and neighborhood quality all relate to adult success. View Resource ...

Hoop structures have been used quite widely for animal production in the U.S. due to their lower capital costs and multi-purpose versatility. Hoop barns for grower-finisher (G-F) swine production have attracted attention in China as an alternative, environmentally friendly, and water-saving production system. This study was conducted to assess concentrations and emissions of ammonia (NH3) and greenhouse gases (GHGs) for a hoop G-F pig barn at a commercial pig operation in suburban Beijing, China. The NH3 and GHG concentrations and emissions of the facility were measured for three consecutive days during spring and summer seasons. The results revealed the following hourly gaseous concentrations (mean ±SD, mg m-3): 5.9 ±2.7 NH3, 2,183 ±1,376 CO2, and 4.0 ±2.5 CH4 in spring, and 6.8 ±3.4 NH3, 1,530 ±364 CO2, and 5.0 ±2.3 CH4 in summer. The estimated gaseous emissions averaged, in g pig-1 d-1, 22.7 NH3, 2,003 CO2, and 6.7 CH4, or in g AU-1 d-1 (AU = 500 kg), 124 NH3, 11,264 CO2, and 36.2 CH4. The
Job sprawl, in which jobs leave the urban core for distant suburbs, has partly contributed to a rise in suburban poverty in cities such as Houston, according to the Brookings Institution. Brookings analyzed population and jobs data for the 50 largest metropolitan areas between 1990 and 2006.. The report notes that the suburban poor face unique challenges. They are concentrated in suburbs with few jobs, they must rely on inadequate suburban transit, and they are removed from many of the important social services provided in more urban areas.. However, job sprawl is not the only factor driving suburban poverty. Brookings suggests that the lack of reverse commute transit, in which riders commute out of the central city to jobs in the suburbs, and negative aspects of impoverished urban areas, such as high crime rates, may also be contributing factors.. According to Brookings, Houston has the 10th-highest level of job sprawl, with 78.1 percent of all jobs more than five miles away from the Central ...

You might think a farm canal would be a better place for a frog than a supermarket drainage ditch. Not so. University of Florida zoologists find that suburban toads suffer fewer reproductive abnormalities than toads living near farms-where many possess both testes and ovaries.. Sure it sounds like good clean bi fun. But double tooling is ultimately a lethal attribute. Heres why. Normal male toads (toads are a variety of frogs) have thick, strong forelimbs. More of the intersex frogs (found only in ag areas) have thin, weak forearms. Plus intersex frogs have fewer "nuptial pads"-the scrappy skin on the feet used to grip females during mating. The likely end result: fewer tadpoles.. This is the first peer-reviewed study to compare wild toads from heavily farmed areas with those from partially farmed and completely suburban areas. Past studies have suggested a link between farm herbicides and sexual abnormalities in amphibians, whose populations are crashing globally.. The UF study finds that male ...

The Seven Countries Study is an epidemiological longitudinal study directed by Ancel Keys at what is today the University of Minnesota Laboratory of Physiological Hygiene & Exercise Science (LPHES). Begun in 1956 with a yearly grant of US$200,000 from the U.S. Public Health Service, the study was first published in 1978 and then followed up on its subjects every five years thereafter. As the worlds first multicountry epidemiological study, it systematically examined the relationships between lifestyle, diet, coronary heart disease and stroke in different populations from different regions of the world. It directed attention to the causes of coronary heart disease and stroke, but also showed that an individuals risk can be changed. As of 2016, heated scientific debate continues. Project officer Henry Blackburn wrote in 1975, "Two strikingly polar attitudes persist on this subject, with much talk from each and little listening between." Ian Leslie quotes a sympathetic colleague at the University ...
Most of this decrease is attributed to a combination of urbanization and poor agricultural methods that have led to loss of topsoil through water and wind erosion. Historically, large tracts of farmland have been located near metropolitan areas. In recent times, these urban centers have grown outward into large suburban areas, and this sprawl has consumed many acres of farmland ...
University of Colorado researcher Dr. David Olds and his colleagues will conduct two interrelated studies aimed at assessing the long-term impacts of prenatal and infancy home visitation by nurses (Nurse Family Partnership, NFP) on children and their families. The first study examines the extent to which the NFP influences low-income parents decisions about where to live and the extent to which higher neighborhood quality may moderate or account for NFPs impact on women and their children.
We investigated the role of reported occupational history and environmental exposures in lung cancer mortality among residents in an industrial town in Italy. The results of the study clearly indicate that exposure in several occupations entails an increased risk of lung cancer. The interpretation of the geographical analysis is not straightforward because no excesses were found in the traffic area or near the industrial plants, but an increased risk was found in the southern suburban area, away from the pollution sources.. Results from emission dispersion models may provide useful hints for evaluating the results, although they are available only for one thermoelectric plant. It is clear that for the thermoelectric plants the concentration of soil pollutants is related to chimney height and to both the intensity and duration of prevailing winds. For the Tor Valdaliga South power station, model results indicate that the area located at 7 km from the point emission was the area with the maximum ...
In general, you are going to get more performance out of 850 than you are going to get out of 1900 for several reasons. 1. As mentioned earlier, back when the 850 licenses were issued, they had to cover a certain amount of land cover. This required deploying their system throughout many rural areas (not ALL though). 1900 licenses only need to cover up to 67% of the population, and in many cases they dont even have to meet that. 2. The higher the frequency, the shorter the usable range. You need approximately twice as many 1900 MHz towers to cover a given area than 850 MHz towers. Most 1900 MHz towers are in urban and suburban areas. A properly built 1900 system will work as well as a properly built 850 system, but it will likely cost more to deploy and operate. Sometimes 1900 will work better in a city because 1900 MHz signals tend to work better in the middle of the city with large buildings as the shorter wavelength allows the signal to go around corners easier. Also, due to network loading, ...
Prevalent in suburban areas and any wooded or grassy region populated by wild animals throughout the Northeast, ticks attach to a host and deposit the infection after burrowing their head in a host. Dr. Arlievsky says that if a classic bulls-eye rash appears, it is "certain confirmation" that the child has been bitten by a tick and has Lyme disease. Symptoms range from swollen joints, rash and fatigue to body aches - not unlike flu symptoms. "The proper thing to do is to consult a physician to rule out other issues, such as general fatigue," she explains. "Once treated symptoms will improve over a week or two." Parents can help afflicted children by providing supportive care and administer pain relievers for joint pain, or an anti-inflammatory medication, but only on the advice of a physician ...
