Chairman, R-Texas Report Raises New Questions About Climate Change Assessments ‘It is important to note the isolation of the paleoclimate community; even though they rely heavily on statistical methods they do not seem to be interacting with the statistical community. Additionally, we judge that the sharing of research materials, data and results was haphazardly and grudgingly done. In this case we judge that there was too much reliance on peer review, which was not necessarily independent. Moreover, the work has been sufficiently politicized that this community can hardly reassess their public positions without losing credibility. Overall, our committee believes that Dr. Mann's assessments that the decade of the 1990s was the hottest decade of the millennium and that 1998 was the hottest year of the millennium cannot be supported by his analysis.'

Trastorno por Déficit de Atención e Hiperactividad: Describiendo un trastorno de la Niñez, la adolescencia y la adultez Alex Eduardo Calderón Rodríguez* Sociedad Universitaria de Neurociencias Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras ResumenEl trastorno por déficit de atención e hiperactividad es una condición neurobiológica común tanto en niños como en adolescentes pero sus manifestaciones disminuyen al ir entrando a la adultez pero no desaparece ya que es un trastorno que solo se controla pero no se cura. Es considerada como una de las causas mas frecuentes en la consulta neuropediatría y psiquiátrica y se caracteriza por un cuadro clínico que consiste de hiperactividad, impulsividad y desatención. Por lo tanto el objetivo de esta revisión es precisar las manifestaciones del trastorno por déficit de atención e hiperactividad en sus diferentes etapas de la vida para determinar un diagnostico preciso en los individuos afectados. Este trabajo también pretende brindar información acerca de la alta conmorbilidad de este trastorno con otras condición tales como el trastornos de aprendizaje, el trastorno posicional desafiante, trastornos de conducta, ansiedad, depresión, desorden afectivo bipolar, el síndrome de Gilles de la Tourette, comportamiento antisocial, uso de sustancias, entre otros ya que resulta difícil realizar un diagnostico preciso y por ende un tratamiento oportuno. Es necesario tomar en cuenta que el tratamiento multidisciplinario que consiste de educación a padres, técnicas para manejo de conducta, programas académicos y apoyo de conducta y fármacos tales como el brupopion y antidepresivos triciclicos para los estados conmorbidos y otros como el metilfenidato para inhibir efectos externos que son las causas de la distractibilidad.

Suuntaus project HUMAN TRAFFICKING OF NIGERIAN WOMEN TO EUROPE Finnish Immigration Service Country Information Service Public theme report The European Refugee Fund participates in funding the project. INTRODUCTION This theme report is part of the ERF-funded Suuntaus project of the Country Information Service of the Finnish Immigration Service which aims to identify the most significant country information themes and anticipate future information needs better. The method was to review asylum interview protocols systematically by using a form designed for the purpose. The countries examined were Nigeria, Iran, Iraq and Russia, and another theme was stateless persons. On the basis of the analysis of the protocols, the theme of this report has been one of the most recurring grounds for seeking asylum. However, the report does not contain references to individual records; instead, all information is based on public sources. 1. RECRUITMENT OF VICTIMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING1 IN NIGERIA "Edo girls went to Italy on visas to work picking tomatoes, but ended up in prostitution. Some came back rich, and became examples of success." (Sister Florence, Committee for the Support of the Dignity of Women (COSUDOW))2 Human trafficking from Nigeria is strongly concentrated in Edo State.3 According to Beatrice Jedy-Agba from NAPTIP4, it appears that the first people that made it across to Europe and were successful in human trafficking were from Edo State. They started to bring their relatives, friends and other people into the trade, and these activities started to gain strength from the 1990s onwards.5 The great majority of victims trafficked to Europe for prostitution belong to the Edo6 ethnic group7 and come from Benin City, the capital of Edo State,8 and the surrounding areas inhabited by Edos, namely Oredo, Ovia, Orhiomwon and Uhumwode.9 The other victims come from the Esan and Etsako Local Government Areas in Edo north and central districts, as well as from the states of Delta, Ondo and Lagos.10 Women are also trafficked from some of the other big cities in Nigeria, such as Lagos, Ibadan, Sapele and Warri.11 Yorubas, Igbos, as well as women from ethnic groups of the Niger Delta have also been registered as victims of human trafficking.12 The majority of Nigerian traffickers are also Edos from Edo State.13 1.1.

Hartford, a Home for the Jew An Analysis of the Jews of Hartford 1900-1923 Jeremy Rosenblatt The tale of American Jewish settling has always been a bittersweet one. Preceding Columbus's discovery of the Americas in the late fourteen hundreds, records of Jewish persecution and forced exile dominated folklore and scholarly texts. Yet, despite the fact that some Jews who suffered from this Diasporas fled to Hartford,

Norgestomet and estradiol valerate induced luteolysis is dependent upon the uterus

NORGESTOMET AND ESTRADIOL VALERATE INDUCED LUTEOLYSIS IS DEPENDENT UPON THE UTERUS C. A. Peterson, J. C. Huhn, and D. J. Kesler SUMMARY Beef heifers were assigned to three groups: 1) untreated controls (n= 4), 2) Syncro-Mate B® (SMB) treated (n= 5), and 3) hysterectomized and SMB treated (n= 4). SMB was administered eight or nine days after estrus, approximately 30 days after hysterectomy. This study was conducted to determine if the uterus was necessary for SMB to induce luteolysis. SMB induced premature luteolysis as only 20% of the intact SMB treated heifers had ≥ .75 ng/mL of progesterone seven days after the time of SMB treatment compared to all (100%) of the untreated heifers (P <.05). By nine days after the time of SMB treatment, 25% of the untreated heifers and none (0%) of the intact SMB treated heifers had ≥ .75 ng/mL of progesterone; however, all (100%) of the hysterectomized SMB treated heifers had ≥ .75 ng/mL of progesterone (P <.05). Therefore, SMB-induced luteolysis required the involvement of the uterus. The luteolysin, prostaglandin F2α, is probably the secretion from the uterus that mediates the SMB-induced luteolysis. SMB treatment, however, required 7-8 days to induce luteolysis. INTRODUCTION Syncro-Mate B® (SMB) is a commercially available procedure to synchronize estrus in beef and dairy cattle. The procedure consists of a norgestomet implant and an intramuscular injection containing norgestomet and estradiol valerate administered at the time of implantation. SMB has three known mechanisms of action. First, an estrus suppression dosage of norgestomet diffuses from the implant during the nine days in situ (Kesler and Favero, 1995). Secondly, the injection causes atresia of antral follicles and recruitment of a new cohort of follicles four to five days after administration (Vasconcelos et al., 1997). Thirdly, the injection causes regression of corpora lutea (Kesler and Favero, 1995). Since the implant is left in place for nine days, the injection is needed to induce regression of corpora lutea in cows during the first half of the estrous cycle. Estradiol-17β, the active metabolite of the estradiol valerate contained within the SMB injection, has been demonstrated to hasten corpus luteum regression (Thatcher et al., 1986). Thatcher et al. (1986) reported spikes of 15-keto- 13, 14-dihydro-prostaglandin F2α (PGFM) in the peripheral blood before luteolysis ensued and concluded that estradiol-17β induced luteolysis by provoking a release of PGF2α from the uterus; however, Thatcher et al. (1986) administered estradiol-17β during the second half of the estrous cycle. Progesterone treatment during metestrus has also been reported to shorten the estrous cycle, but only by four days (Woody et al., 1967; Harms and Malven, 1969; Ginther, 1970; Battista et al., 1984; Garrett et al., 1988). The objective of this study was to determine if the hypothesis that SMB induced luteolysis is dependent upon uterine involvement was correct. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three groups of purebred Angus beef heifers from the University of Illinois beef research unit (Urbana, IL) were included in this study. The control group (n=4) was selected from a larger group of estrus-cycling females administered prostaglandin F2α (25 mg Lutalyse®; Pharmica and Upjohn, Kalamazoo, MI, USA) due to their similar timing of estrus (detectable estrus within 48 hours of each

Microsoft word - reproductive options for trans people .doc

REPRODUCTIVE OPTIONS FOR TRANS PEOPLE This fact sheet offers information about reproductive options for trans people interested in hormone therapy or surgeries. Knowing and discussing reproductive options is a necessary component of informed consent to transition-related care, and is a significant component of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health's Standards of Care for the Health of Transsexual, Transgender, and Gender Nonconforming People (1). Note about terminology: While most health care providers assume that all people with ovaries and uteri will be women and all people with testes and sperm will be men, within the trans community this is not the case. For the purposes of this fact sheet, we will refer to people according to their reproductive characteristics as opposed to their gender (D. Spade, About purportedly gendered body parts). For example, trans men will be referred to as people with ovaries and uteri or people with internal reproductive organs and trans women will be referred to as people who can produce sperm or people with external reproductive organs. An exception will be made where research explicitly refers to trans men or trans women. Genderqueer people, who do not align themselves with binary gender categories (i.e., male or female), may not identify as trans but the issues covered in this fact sheet may be relevant to them as well. SIGNIFICANCE OF REPRODUCTIVE ISSUES FOR TRANS PEOPLE Research conducted with trans men in Belgium found that 54% wished to have children, and 37.5% would have considered freezing their eggs if the procedure had been available (2). Similar research with Western European trans women found that 40% wanted to have children, with 56% of lesbian and bisexual trans women expressing interest in using their own sperm, compared with 13% of straight trans women. Many regretted losing the opportunity to parent genetically related children, and 77% felt the option to preserve sperm should be routinely offered to all trans women (3).
