Abstract: The article considers Tim Wintons fiction in terms of its cross- and transcultural character. Despite the fact that local Australian settings permeate the writers narratives, Winton creates an imaginary space that is both local and transnational in terms of its quality of the domestic culture, which Winton extends beyond its original field of practice. Winton achieves the transcultural quality of his fiction through transgressions and boundary breaking that are possible due to his frequent reworking of the traditional Australian themes and concepts of the unknown, supernatural, mystical, numinous and sacred, exploitation of leitmotifs of journey, transit and in-betweenness, use of cross-cultural symbols as well as various utopian and dystopian topoi such as Arcadia and Heimat.. Keywords: Tim Winton, local, global, universal themes, cross-cultural and transcultural symbols, motifs and topoi. ...
Among minorities, the need for kidney transplants is disproportionately high, so donations are essential. Anthony Brown, a patient-advocate with American Kidney Fund, shared his story about donating one of his kidneys to his mother last year on World Kidney Day. Anthony is one of many inspirational advocates in the American Kidney Fund network who has donated a kidney to a friend or family member. READ MORE >>.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. ROCKVILLE, Md. (March 20, 2020) -The American Kidney Fund (AKF) has established a Coronavirus Emergency Fund to provide critically needed financial assistance to low-income U.S. dialysis and transplant patients who are facing unexpected expenses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. AKF has reallocated $300,000 from its existing budget to provide emergency assistance to patients for food, transportation and medications, and the organization is raising additional funds from the public. 100% of all donations will go directly to patients in need, not overhead.. The AKF Coronavirus Emergency Fund will provide a grant of $250 to any U.S. dialysis or recent kidney transplant patient who applies to AKF and demonstrates financial need. AKF will begin accepting applications for assistance on Monday, March 23, 2020.. The health crisis in our country is unprecedented, and vulnerable kidney failure patients are facing enormous risks and challenges, said LaVarne A. Burton, AKF ...

(Used with permission from DECC (Department of Environment and Climate Change), undated. PO Box A290 Sydney South NSW 1232.). I first encountered the pied butcherbird five years ago in the outback of Western Australia. As a violinist/composer trained in the Western classical music tradition, I have spent much of the last 35 years transcribing music of the American vernacular, from fiddle tunes to jazz, from country to Cajun. Residencies in the Dominican Republic and Budapest saw me extend my research to music of the Caribbean and eastern European folk music. While some of these styles I actively performed in, more often the purpose of my research was to expand my toolkit as a composer and improviser. My expertise lay in transcription.. I determined to compile the song phrases of the pied butcherbird, a sort of ...
BACKGROUND: The Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture (NHSOPS) questionnaire was developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), particularly as an intervention to raise staff awareness about patient safety issues. The main objective of the present study was to provide a validated French-language measure of the safety culture (SC) in nursing homes. Thus the aim was i) to carry out a transcultural adaptation into French of the NHSOPS questionnaire, ii) to assess its psychometric properties in a sample of professionals working in French EHPAD facilities and iii) to develop our own tool. METHODS: The study was carried out on volunteering professionals from 61 nursing homes (from January to March 2016). Two phases were conducted: an initial phase involving the translation and cultural adaptation of the questionnaire, and a second phase in which the psychometric properties of the questionnaire were assessed. A Structural Equation Model (SEM) with a maximum likelihood
Dear Friend,. As National Kidney Month draws to a close, Id like to take a moment to put the spotlight on the American Kidney Funds efforts to educate the public about kidney health.. In a national survey we conducted last year, we learned that a very large majority of Americans do not know that diabetes and high blood pressure are the leading causes of kidney disease. This was true even among people who have loved ones with those conditions.. Thats one of the main reasons we launched our national campaign, Pair Up: Join the Fight to Prevent Kidney Disease. Pair Up encourages people to take two simple actions: learn if they are at risk for kidney disease, and then spread the word to loved ones who may be at risk. So far, more than 20,000 people have taken the Pair Up Challenge on the campaign website to learn about the risk factors for kidney disease.. To kick off National Kidney Month, we took the Pair Up message to Capitol Hill, partnering with patient-advocates to educate members of ...

Some alarming facts about osteoporosis: it does not have any symptoms, there is no cure and it does not exclusively affect women. Adult Filipino men, in particular, are susceptible to the disease by age 50.. These conclusions were recently presented by Anlene milk brand manager Erik Riola in the Partners for Life discussion at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel. The data came from bone scans conducted on over 250,000 Filipino men from August 2011 to July this year.. Based on the results, the Anlene team found out that 43 percent of men ages 26-65 are at risk for osteoporosis. That means one out of five Filipino men over the age of 50 will likely suffer from a bone fracture due to poor bone health. These fractures usually occur on the wrist, spine and hip.. Anlene has been conducting free bone scans for the past years in malls, groceries and wet markets. This quick procedure is done by placing a foot in a machine with small balloons that inflate and lightly squeezes the heel. It is over in minutes, ...

To live, Olivia needs a kidney transplant. Though kidney dialysis is keeping her alive for now, each year on dialysis she faces a 6% risk of death: If Olivia is in her twenties, her expected lifespan on dialysis is 30 years less than her expected lifespan with a transplant.. But Olivia is one of the 67,000 people on the American kidney transplant waiting lists. (Twenty five thousand more wait for other organs.) The median wait for adult recipients added to the list in 2001-02 was over four years. Each year, only 6500 living Americans donate kidneys, and only 45% of the 26,000 usable cadaveric kidneys -- kidneys gathered from the bodies of people who die from accidents or other causes that leave their organs young and healthy -- are donated.. Nor should this shortage be surprising: Since 1984, receiv[ing] or . . . transfer[ing] any human organ for valuable consideration for use in human transplantation has been a federal felony. Price controls diminish supply. Setting the price at zero ...

Based upon two years of fieldwork in a mental health service for migrants in Lisbon, this article underlines how the psychiatric interpretation of the emotional experience of displacement, homelessness and (non) belonging in migrants can be influenced by colonial legacies. These legacies - incorporated, despite the best of intentions, as a constitutive element of diagnosis and treatment into the therapeutic practices of psychiatric counselling - pathologize experiences and behaviours of marginalized people of non-Western origins, reproducing discriminative attitudes and institutional racism. You came to me, Hippocrates, to give me the hellebore, giving credit to foolish men by whom my job is considered madness. I was writing about the harmony of the cosmos, the description of the pole and about the stars […] If you, convinced that I was insane, had made me drink this medicine, my wisdom would have become madness and your art would have been blamed as responsible of creating folly [Letter of Democritus

Buddhist philosophers argue that there is no general entity, such as a universal, which is responsible for the fact that we can apply a term, such as pot, to more than one particular. They argue this because they believe that only momentary particulars exist. Dividing the world into enduring substantial objects that can be classified according to their differing natures is at best a useful illusion, according to Buddhists. The issue then becomes how to explain the fact that we refer to seemingly enduring entities in our language. Buddhists claim that when we use the term pot as a general concept, we refer to every individual that is not a non-pot. This is the distinctive feature of the Buddhist apoha theory, as mentioned in the above quote. The advantage of this theory for Buddhists is that it does not require any general essence that all pots have to share. Instead, the term pot refers as the result of a double negation... ...

Pneumococcus is a bacterium that healthy people commonly have in their nose and throat; this is called pneumococcal carriage. Carriage is usually harmless, but can progress to serious disease like pneumonia, meningitis, and blood stream infections or to less serious, but burdensome, diseases like sinusitis or ear infections. Infants and the elderly bear the greatest burden of pneumococcal disease with over 800,000 annual global deaths from this germ among children under 5 years of age. Furthermore, pneumococcus has developed resistance to antibiotics making it increasingly difficult to treat pneumococcal infections. Within the United States some Native American groups, like the Navajo and the White Mountain Apache tribes, suffer from pneumococcal disease much more often than people in the general US population. We dont know why pneumococcus disproportionately afflicts these communities, but we know this health disparity can be significantly reduced through vaccination. In 2000, for the first ...
The American Kidney Fund (AKF) has launched a nationwide study examining the factors that can make it difficult for people who are on dialysis to adhere consistently to their prescribed treatment regimens. This study, funded by Amgen, seeks to identify reasons for non-adherence so that appropriate patient interventions may be designed.. The treatment regimen for dialysis patients is demanding: medication, regular dialysis treatment, and strict fluid and diet restrictions.. Kidney failure is an enormously difficult condition to live with, and its crucial that we gain a better understanding of the unique challenges patients face in their daily care management, said LaVarne A. Burton, president and chief executive officer of the American Kidney Fund. With that knowledge, well be able to develop education programs and interventions to help patients overcome barriers to adherence and improve their health..

We understand culture as a dynamic system that creates and defines meaning. The dynamics involved are viewed as sources of creativity that can give rise to something new, but can also cause conflicts, including violence and war - and are analysed accordingly.. Mobility, migration and transfer constitute not only crucial challenges of our times. It is our working hypothesis that they have been fundamental experiences in all eras. These experiences and processes concern the development of groups, societies, religions, and behavioural patterns, including every-day social practices, as well as the creation of art and literary works. Like all cultural phenomena they are historically contingent, thus multi-layered and modifiable. They reflect current power structures and social inequalities; at the same time they are intrinsically linked to a search for orientation and order.. We view our research as. ...
The most intense cultural conflicts tend to be disputes over the proper way to structure and maintain mass-scale social life. Accordingly, whether within or across national boundaries, disagreements regarding politics (and religion, as the other major force that regulates mass-scale social life) are much more likely to lead to acrimony and even violence than, say, disagreements over preferred personality traits or tastes in art. Politics can affect the lives of others in a way that personality and taste do not. It has been a flashpoint over the centuries and serious attempts at understanding cultural conflict must address the reasons for political differences.. What is it that leads individuals-even in nearly identical social milieus-to hold such distinct, often persistent, and potentially explosive political orientations? Traditional social science approaches have ignored the role of biology in these differences and focused on variables directly relevant to political life. Scholars argued over ...

We resequenced portions of three helicase genes (BLM, WRN, and RECQL) identifying a total of 37 noncoding single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Haplotype inference predicted 50 haplotypes in BLM, 56 in WRN, and 47 in RECQL in a sample of 600 chromosomes. Approximately 10% of the predicted haplotypes were shared among all ethnic groups. Linkage disequilibrium and recombination effects showed that each locus has taken a diverse evolutionary path. Primate DNA analysis of the same ...
Introduction: In the Southern Cone of Latin America physical inactivity has become the fifth most important determinant of death. There is no published data describing and comparing physical activity (PA) patterns among different cities in this region.. METHODS: CESCAS I is an observational, prospective cohort study entailing a probabilistic sample of 7524 representing the general adult population in four middle-size cities of the Southern Cone of Latin America. PA was assessed through the transcultural adapted questionnaire from the International Physical Activity Questionnaire long form. The indicator of PA intensity was expressed continuously, in metabolic equivalent task (MET) per minutes per week. We expressed the total PA score per week as Total MET-minutes/week constituted by the sum of Walking, Moderate and Vigorous MET minutes/week scores. Insufficient PA was defined as , Total 600 MET-minutes/week. Analyses were based on weighted data taking into account individual probabilities of ...

The author will present quantitative and qualitative results from the South African PAGEC (Perception and Assessment of Global Environmental Change) study. The study forms part of an international investigation of the topic, and is the first study on this issue to be undertaken in the Southern Hemisphere. A cybernetic approach to the analysis and interpretation of the data will be used to illustrate the relevance of certain basic systemic assumptions. Four language groups (Afrikaans, Zulu, Sotho and English) were sampled in two regions (urban and nonurban) (n=801). Results suggest that the traditionally conceived ethnic variable is much more complex than is usually acknowledged, and is affected by socioeconomic factors such as the situational factors of poverty. The transactional relationship between humans and their natural environment is also seen as being mediated by certain cultural factors that are fundamental to the differences that are found in transcultural research. Amongst these are ...
The development of modern science has depended strongly on specific features of the cultures involved; however, its results are widely and transculturally accepted and applied. The science and technology of electricity, for example, emerged as a specific product of post-Renaissance Europe, rooted in the Greek philosophical tradition that encourages explanations of nature in theoretical terms. It did not evolve in China presumably because such encouragement was missing. The transcultural acceptance of modern science and technology is postulated to be due, in part, to the common biological dispositions underlying human cognition, with generalizable capabilities of abstract, symbolic and strategic thought. These faculties of the human mind are main prerequisites for dynamic cultural development and differentiation. They appear to have evolved up to a stage of hunters and gatherers perhaps some 100 000 years ago. However, the extent of the correspondence between some constructions of the human mind and the

An alcoholism recovery home was established for Mariel Cuban refugees, but client selection procedures and program were inappropriate. A viable alternative was found with Hispanic Alcoholics Anonymous, and the program was converted to this approach. Problems of professionalism and the clinical relationship to AA emerged. Clinical interventions are inappropriate in the AA context, but sociologists may adopt the ethnographers role. Exploration of the transcultural adaptation of AA ideas for an Hispanic population proved therapeutic when clients were placed in roles such as collaborator and cultural informant. Sociologists involved with groups in which clinical roles are inappropriate may find subjective refuge in the role of ethnographic researcher.

The Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin is a centre for the international cultural exchange. The emphasis of its innovative and experimental programme lies on contemporary arts (fine arts, dance, theatre, film, literature, performances and music) and current developments in the non-European cultures, especially of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. On account of global transcultural processes and international migration, the focus of the programme has been widened and encompasses the artistic and cultural consequences of globalization. hkw.de is a platform for the intercultural dialogue worldwide.
Lev 18:22) Thou shalt not lie [shâkab] with mankind [zâkâr], as with womankind: it is abomination [tôêbah] . (Lev 20:13) If a man [îysh] also lie [shâkab] with mankind [zâkâr], as he lieth [mishkâb] with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination [tôêbah]: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. While these commands explicitly condemn male homosex and are presented as general commands given to all Israel, relatively recently these have become the subject of intense attack by prohomosex polemicists. While most admit that sexual moral codes are transcultural and transhistorical, attempts are made to find grammatical, categorical and cultural aspects that would disallow the injunctions which prohibit homosex. Most of these prohomosex writers usually first assert that the Hebrew word tōʻēḇā for abomination, which describes male sex with men here, does not usually signify something inherently evil, like adultery or theft, but something ...

No one is entirely sure when magical penis loss first came to Africa. One early incident was recounted by Dr. Sunday Ilechukwu, a psychiatrist, in a letter some years ago to the Transcultural Psychiatric Review. In 1975, while posted in Kaduna, in the north of Nigeria, Dr. Ilechukwu was sitting in his office when a policeman escorted in two men and asked for a medical assessment. One of the men had accused the other of making his penis disappear. This had caused a major disturbance in the street. As Ilechukwu tells it, the victim stared straight ahead during the examination, after which the doctor pronounced him normal. Exclaiming, Ilechukwu wrote, the patient looked down at his groin for the first time, suggesting that the genitals had just reappeared.. According to Ilechukwu, an epidemic of penis theft swept Nigeria between 1975 and 1977. Then there seemed to be a lull until 1990, when the stealing resurged. Men could be seen in the streets of Lagos holding on to their genitalia either ...

The Beatrice Medicine papers, 1913-2003 (bulk 1945-2003), document the professional life of Dr. Beatrice Bea Medicine (1923-2005), a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, anthropologist, scholar, educator, and Native rights activist. The collection also contains material collected by or given to Medicine to further her research and activism interests. Medicine, whose Lakota name was Hinsha Waste Agli Win, or Returns Victorious with a Red Horse Woman, focused her research on a variety of topics affecting the Native American community: 1) mental health, 2) womens issues, 3) bilingual education, 4) alcohol and drug use, 5) ethno-methodologies and research needs of Native Americans, and 6) Children and identity issues.

Additionally, because of the large amount of research material and Medicines correspondence with ...
In the years after 2010, those two demographics have grown significantly in the state as it has experienced a period of in-migration that has reversed what was previously a steady population decline. While the majority-54 percent-of newcomers are white, the growth period has otherwise ushered in a period of increasing diversity that echoes conditions in Minnesota and the rest of the U.S.. Black residents accounted for roughly 0.6 percent of the North Dakota population before 2010. Now, they make up nearly 3 percent of the whole.. Hispanics amounted to 1.2 percent percent of the population total in 2010, but, after a period in which North Dakota counties had some of the highest growth rates for Latino residents in the nation, the states Hispanic population is now about 3.6 percent. However, a considerable number of the states Latinos racially identify as white.. As other groups have increased in population, the states Native American communities have held relatively steady, at about 5.5 ...
As information is teased out of mold-eaten wax cylinders from the early twentieth century, new technology and new thinking are helping Native American communities revitalize their languages.
Monsoon storms send huge walls of dust across parts of Arizona, sometimes snarling traffic on roadways and knocking out power. There could be hidden health impacts for millions of people living in the states dust zone as well. These dust storms carry a noxious mix of fungi, heavy metals from pollutants, chemicals and bacteria that could lead to cardiovascular and eye disease, and other illnesses. These large dust storms are often called haboobs and in the local Native American communities they are called jegos (joo-goes).. ...

Here at NRDC weve made no secret of the fact that we think that wolves are fully recovered in the upper Midwest (Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan) and no longer need Endangered Species Act protections. In fact, NRDC wrote a detailed comment letter to the federal government saying just that. But even then, we said that the success or failure of delisting would hinge on whether or not these Midwest states could responsibly manage their wolves. Of all the management plans in the Midwest--plans that the federal government relied on when it removed the wolf from the Endangered Species List--the Minnesota plan was one of the best, not least of which because it called for a five-year moratorium on hunting after any delisting. Now it seems like Minnesota is about to unilaterally change course and allow the immediate hunting and trapping of 400 wolves. Wisconsin just enacted a similar hunting plan, despite the vociferous objections of its Native American communities.. Minnesotans have been predictably ...
