*  Racial Disparities in Tuberculosis --- Selected Southeastern States, 1991--2002
Despite substantial declines in tuberculosis (TB) in the United States, in 2002, non-Hispanic blacks continued to have TB at rates eight times greater than non-Hispanic whites (1). To better understand racial disparities in TB, CDC analyzed surveillance data collected during 1991--2002, comparing TB cases in seven southeastern states* where TB rates were higher than the national average with TB cases in the rest of the United States. This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which indicated that TB rates among non-Hispanic blacks in the seven southeastern states continued to exceed those among non-Hispanic whites but were similar to rates among non-Hispanic blacks in the rest of the country. In addition, non-Hispanic blacks with TB in the southeastern states were more likely than non-Hispanic whites to report certain risk factors, suggesting that differences in socioeconomic ...

*  Systematics and biogeography of Orconectes, subgenus Trisellescens, in the southeastern United States, a test of morphology...
Diagnosable taxonomic units are fundamental to conservation biology and management of resources and the need for sound science in both fields is more pressing for aquatic ecosystems. Within freshwater crayfishes, the North American genus Orconectes is one of the most diverse in the World. Accurate assessments of species level relationships and species boundaries within the genus have historically been hampered by a low number of variable morphological characters and inadequate sampling from across the ranges of many taxa. We examine a diverse group of southeastern United States stream dwelling Orconectes in the subgenus Trisellescens using 16S, COI mtDNA, and morphology to resolve uncertainties in species boundaries. Our results suggest that strong divergences exist between taxa found above and below the Fall Line in parts of the southeastern United States and the taxonomy for taxa found in that region should remain unchanged. However, using ...

*  "Climatology of the Southeastern United States Continental Shelf Waters" by Larry P. Atkinson, Thomas N. Lee et al.
Data from 2872 hydrographic stations have been used to determine the oceanographie climatology of the southeastern United States continental shelf waters. The data were sorted by each degree of latitude and by depth into three zones (0-20 m, 21-40 m, 41-60 m). Inner shelf water temperatures were similar to adjacent land air temperatures, while outer shelf temperatures were moderated by the Gulf Stream. Minimum and maximum water temperatures occurred in Georgia and South Carolina inner shelf water. Bottom temperatures were unusually low off Florida in the summer probably because of shelf break upwelling. Surface salinity was lowest adjacent to the rivers and reached minimums in the spring at the time of high runoff. An exception to this occurred in the fall, when strong southward winds apparently advected low salinity coastal water southward and offshore flow was restricted. Heat flux was calculated from changes in monthly mean depth-averaged inner shelf water temperatures. ...

*  Wood Energy in the Southeastern United States: A Strategy for Sustainable Growth
Economic and environmental concerns over fossil fuels are placing the Southeast United States in a position to expand its use of wood biomass for energy. The region's productive forestland, growing population, and wood products industry can help provide a sustainable, diverse and abundant supply of woody biomass much of which is currently unutilized. While federal and state policies are steering the use of wood toward large-scale production of cellulosic ethanol and electricity in the Southeast, the generation of thermal energy, the most efficient use of wood, appears to be undervalued. Three market segments that can benefit economically from biomass thermal energy are highlighted: institutions, agriculture, and industry. These segments are selected based on sustainability criteria that include a rapid payback period, high demand for thermal energy, efficient use of woody biomass, proximity to fuel source, and potential for repeatability across the region. Sensitivity ...

For the index SNP rs10941679 in the 5p12 region, we found evidence for an increased risk for the G allele, consistent with the original GWAS finding in European populations (13). Analysis of the Black Woman's Health Study and the African American sample from the Multiethnic Cohort Study both also found a nonsignificant trend for increased risk with the G allele at this SNP (13, 20, 21). Similarly, our marginal finding for a trend for an increased risk for the G allele at rs1219648 at 10q26.1/FGFR2 is consistent in direction, both with the original GWAS finding (10) and with combined results for African Americans from the Southern Community Cohort Study and the Nashville Breast Health Study (24). As a receptor tyrosine kinase, the FGFR2 protein is involved in cell signaling pathways (40). This protein is known to have a role in breast tissue development (41, 42) and has been shown to have nuclear localization in breast normal and tumor tissue (43).. Comparing our regional findings to results from ...

*  Is the Stroke Belt Disappearing? | Stroke
Over the past 30 years there has been a dramatic decline in the United States in stroke mortality for blacks and whites and for men and women. Despite this remarkable decline, the increased relative risk of stroke death in the coastal plain of the Southeastern United States appears to have persisted in approximately the same magnitude in the four race/sex groups from 1968 to 1991.. The societal impact of the Stroke Belt is staggering. Based on data from the Compressed Mortality File, there were 4255 stroke deaths in the 153 Stroke Belt counties in 1990 and an age-adjusted stroke mortality rate of 262/100 000. This represents a 43% excess over the age-adjusted stroke death rate of 183/100 000 in the remainder of the United States. If the stroke mortality rate for the remainder of the United States is applied to the 1.8 million residents of the Stroke Belt aged 45 years and ...

*  Animals Seeking Cooler Environments Rerouted By Cities And Farms - Redorbit
University of Washington. In spite of considerable human development, the southeastern United States region could provide some of the Western Hemisphere's more heavily used thoroughfares for mammals, birds and amphibians on their way to cooler environments in a warming world, according to new research led by the University of Washington. The region is among half a dozen areas that could experience heavier traffic compared with the average species-movement across the Western Hemisphere in response to a warming climate. The estimate in southeastern states, for example, is up to 2.5 times the average amount of movement across North and South America. Other areas that could see pronounced animal movements are northeastern North America, including around the Great Lakes and north into Canada; southeastern Brazil, home to both the species-rich Atlantic Forest and major cities such as Sao Paulo with its 11 million residents; and the Amazon Basin. The basin, ...

*  THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: July 2012
The 20th century cooling trend over the southeastern United States Portions of the southern and southeastern United States, primarily Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia, have experienced century-long (1895-2007) downward air temperature trends that occur in all seasons. Superimposed on them are shifts in mean temperatures on decadal scales characterized by alternating warm (1930s-1940s, 1990s) and cold (1900s; 1960s-1970s) regimes. Regional atmospheric circulation and SST teleconnection indices, station-based cloud cover and soil moisture (Palmer drought severity index) data are used in stepwise multiple linear regression models. These models identify predictors linked to observed winter, summer, and annual Southeastern air temperature variability, the observed variance (r2) they explain, and the resulting prediction and residual time series. Long-term variations and trends in tropical Pacific sea temperatures, cloud cover, soil moisture and ...
