Resilience and Disaster Trends in the Philippines: Opportunities for National and Local Capacity Building.

PLoS Curr 2016 Sep 14;8. Epub 2016 Sep 14.

Dept of Global Health and Population, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, Cambridge, Massachussets, USA.

Introduction:  The Philippines is one of the top countries in the world at risk of climate-related disasters. For populations subsisting at the poverty line in particular, but also the nation as a whole, daily lives and wellbeing are routinely challenged. The Philippines government takes disaster risk seriously and has devoted significant resources to build disaster capacity and reduce population exposure and vulnerability, nationally and locally.

Civil-Military Engagement: An Empirical Account of Humanitarian Perceptions of Civil-Military Coordination During the Response to Typhoon Haiyan.

Disaster Med Public Health Prep 2016 Feb 10;10(1):7-10. Epub 2015 Jul 10.

Director, Program on Resilient Communities, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative,Cambridge,Massachusetts.

Objective: This study sought to identify how humanitarian actors in natural disasters coordinate (or communicate) with the military to identify the needs of disaster-affected populations, identify how coordination should be undertaken for the delivery of relief goods, perceive the effectiveness of such coordination, perceive the role that training played in preparation for coordinating with the military and the effectiveness of this training, and view the overall civil-military engagement and its implications for the independence of the humanitarian sector.

Methods: A survey instrument focused on participant perceptions of the civil-military engagement in response to Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines was sent to country directors and agency leads who played a role in the response.

Results: Although the data supported anecdotal accounts that the coordination between civilian and military actors during the disaster relief efforts in Typhoon Haiyan worked well, they also revealed that fewer than half of the respondents were familiar with the Guidelines on the Use of Foreign Military and Civil Defence Assets in Disaster Relief (the "Oslo Guidelines") and only 12% of respondents thought that the Oslo Guidelines were used to develop organizational policy on humanitarian aid agency engagement with military actors.

Linkage of large-vessel carotid atherosclerotic stroke to inflammatory genes via a systematic screen.

Int J Stroke 2010 Jun;5(3):145-51

National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, NIH, DHHS, Bethesda, MD, USA.

Background: Inflammatory cytokines including the IL-1 family, TNF-alpha and IL-6 mediate the formation of thrombosis on the luminal surface of atherosclerotic plaques. Gene polymorphisms that regulate these cytokines' expression may explain part of the variation in susceptibility to stroke in patients with carotid atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and haplotypes in inflammatory genes as they relate to symptomatic carotid atherosclerosis. Read More

Understanding the security management practices of humanitarian organizations.

Disasters 2008 Jun;32(2):263-79

Program on Humanitarian Policy and Conflict Research, Harvard School of Public Health, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA.

Humanitarian organisations operate in increasingly hostile environments. Although authoritative statistics are scarce, anecdotal evidence suggests that aid workers face life-threatening risks that are exacerbated by the growing number of humanitarian organisations operating in the field, the diversity of their mandates, the lack of common professional security standards, and limited success in inter-agency security coordination. Despite broad acceptance of the need for better security management and coordination, many humanitarian organisations remain ambivalent about devoting increased resources to security management and security coordination.

Alcoholism is associated with GALR3 but not two other galanin receptor genes.

Genes Brain Behav 2007 Jul 3;6(5):473-81. Epub 2006 Nov 3.

Pain and Neurosensory Mechanisms Branch, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, National Institutes of Health, DHHS, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA.

The neuropeptide galanin is widely expressed in the periphery and the central nervous system and mediates diverse physiological processes and behaviors including alcohol abuse, depression and anxiety. Four genes encoding galanin and its receptors have been identified (GAL, GALR1, GALR2 and GALR3). Recently we found that GAL haplotypes were associated with alcoholism, raising the possibility that genetic variation in GALR1, GALR2 and GALR3 might also alter alcoholism risk. Read More

A clinical genetic method to identify mechanisms by which pain causes depression and anxiety.

Mol Pain 2006 Apr 19;2:14. Epub 2006 Apr 19.

Clinical Pain Research Section, Division of Intramural Research, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, National Institutes of Health, DHHS, Bethesda, MD, USA.

Background: Pain patients are often depressed and anxious, and benefit less from psychotropic drugs than pain-free patients. We hypothesize that this partial resistance is due to the unique neurochemical contribution to mood by afferent pain projections through the spino-parabrachial-hypothalamic-amygdalar systems and their projections to other mood-mediating systems. New psychotropic drugs for pain patients might target molecules in such brain systems. Read More

Association of galanin haplotypes with alcoholism and anxiety in two ethnically distinct populations.

Mol Psychiatry 2006 Mar;11(3):301-11

Pain and Neurosensory Mechanisms Branch, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, Bethesda, MD 20892, USA.

The neuropeptide galanin (GAL) is widely expressed in the central nervous system. Animal studies have implicated GAL in alcohol abuse and anxiety: chronic ethanol intake increases hypothalamic GAL mRNA; high levels of stress increase GAL release in the central amygdala. The coding sequence of the galanin gene, GAL, is highly conserved and a functional polymorphism has not yet been found. Read More

Camillo Golgi and the discovery of the Golgi apparatus.

Authors:
A Dröscher

Histochem Cell Biol 1998 May-Jun;109(5-6):425-30

Institut für die Geschichte der Naturwissenschaften, Mathematik und Technik, Universität Hamburg, Germany.

Camillo Golgi (1843-1926) was born at Corteno, near Brescia, in northern Italy. After graduating in Medicine at the ancient University of Pavia, the former seat of great scientists and naturalists, Golgi continued a long-standing Italian tradition by studying the histology of the nervous system. While working as a modest physician at Abbiategrasso, a small town near Pavia, he developed a silver-osmium technique, the "reazione nera" (black reaction), for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1906.

Influence of growth status and placental function on birth weight of infants born to young still-growing teenagers.

Am J Clin Nutr 1984 Oct;40(4):801-7

To investigate the determinants of fetal maturation of infants born to adolescent mothers, we studied the obstetric population attended at the Maternity Hospital of Lima, Peru. From this population we selected for inclusion in this study a sample of 412 adolescent mothers ranging in age from 13 to 15 yr. These subjects were selected because the anthropometric measurements of their parents were obtained at the time the adolescents were being attended for delivery. Read More

Blood pressure in blacks and whites and its relationship to dietary sodium and potassium intake.

J Chronic Dis 1984 ;37(7):515-9

The 24-hour dietary intake and blood pressure of 1928 black and 9739 white adults derived from the data sets of the first US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES I) of 1971-1974 were analyzed. Contrary to expectation, the absolute and relative intakes of sodium and potassium in blacks were less than those of whites. However, because the difference in potassium was greater than the difference in sodium, blacks did have a significantly higher sodium/potassium ratio than whites. Read More
