    The present proposition of law has for object to come up to the expectations of persons having participated to nuclear weapons test made by France between the 13. february 1960 and the 27 january 1996, in Sahara or French polynesia. The consequences on health can not be ignored even after several decades of years. Furthermore, the present proposition of law chooses to extend this measure to the victims of nuclear accidents. The Chernobylsk accident has shown that the French territory did not avoid to a risk inherent to this kind of activity. This project makes a census of the different nuclear tests with incidents, different accidents in France and the different kind of pathologies among the veterans and their progeny. The different steps for the victims to claim are detailed. Other states have adopted laws of compensation for the victims of their populations, civil or military ones. That is why this proposition of law comes today to be adopted. (N.C.)

Studiul este axat pe rezultatele cercetării „Comportamentul reproductiv al femeilor din Republica Moldova”, realizate în decem­brie 2015 de Facultatea de Sociologie şi Asistenţă Socială a Universităţii de Stat din Moldova în parteneriat cu Universitatea Carol din Praga (Republica Cehă cu suportul financiar al Agenţiei Cehe pentru Dezvoltare.Rezultate cercetării evidenţiază un şir de factori (materiali, psihologici etc. ce influenţează intenţia femeilor de a naşte copii.

  3. Le futur de l'agriculture passe-t-il par la disparation des exploitations familiales ?

    par du capital? L'accaparement massif des ressources de la planète, par-delà la diversité de ses manifestations, traduit leur marchandisation toujours plus étendue, au nom de la croissance et du bien-être à l'échelle mondiale. Les dimensions historiques, écologiques, sociales, culturelles et politiques des dynamiques en cours ne peuvent être ignorées. Dans ce contexte il est fondamental de mettre en avant le droit des populations à disposer d'un accès équitable à la terre, à l'eau et aux ressources naturelles et leur droit à mettre en oeuvre les systèmes de production les plus conformes à la fois à leurs choix techniques, écologiques, économiques etculturels, et à l'intérêt général.Science sans conscience n'est que mort de l'âme. Il nous paraissait donc important de mettre en avant pour tous ceux qui s'intéressent à l'avenir de l'agriculture dans les régions tropicales ce qui se discute actuellement à Valencia. Car, si on réfléchit bien, c'est le futur d'une grande partie de l'agriculture familiale dans cette partie du monde qui est en jeu. Dans cette perspective, nous espérons que les travaux du forum mondial sur l'accès à la terre permettront de proposer des solutions à la hauteur des problèmes qui se posent.

    Full Text Available Le monde urbain contemporain a une forte différence avec le monde rural. En effet, l’application assez systématique de la Charte d’Athènes a multiplié les quartiers sans âme. Les jeunes de ces quartiers éprouvent donc de grandes difficultés à se forger une identité dans un environnement qui n’offre guère de référents. Ils ont, en conséquence, du mal à trouver l’équilibre leur facilitant une réussite scolaire D’où l’importance, pour l’Education nationale, de déployer une politique culturelle susceptible de surmonter ces difficultés. Après avoir précisé la légitimité et les objectifs de l’action culturelle de l’Education nationale, il conviendra d’en montrer les formes et les moyens. Enfin, il sera précieux de tenter une évaluation.

  14. La régulation des industries culturelles à l’heure d’Internet et les enjeux pour la diversité culturelle: Le cas des quotas radiophoniques français

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alexandre Joux

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available La convention sur la protection et la promotion de la diversité des expressions culturelles, adoptée à l’UNESCO en 2005, redonne à l’instance internationale sa légitimité pour traiter des sujets liés aux politiques culturelles nationales. Ceux-ci avaient été déportés vers l’OMC dans les années 1990 à l’occasion des débats sur l’exception culturelle. Dix ans après l’adoption de la Convention de 2005, le développement de plates-formes mondiales de distribution des biens et services culturels remet toutefois en question, non pas les politiques culturelles nationales que la convention a sanctuarisés, mais leur efficacité à l’heure d’Internet. Ces évolutions obligent à comprendre la diversité culturelle au prisme de l’analyse économique pour imaginer des formes nouvelles et internationales de régulation des flux des produits des industries culturelles, ce qu’a révélé le débat français sur le projet de modification, en 2015, des quotas radiophoniques. Les quotas et les contraintes de programmation qu’ils imposent, en ne s’appliquant pas aux plates-formes de streaming musical, pourraient en effet et paradoxalement fragiliser les acteurs régulés sur qui repose la politique de diversité, sauf à étendre aux acteurs non-médiatiques le principe des quotas.

  15. Une théorie pour penser les industries culturelles et informationnelles ?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pierre Mœglin

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available Cet article traite de la naissance et du développement de la théorie des industries culturelles et informationnelles. Il procède des deux questions suivantes : pourquoi une théorie unifiée, plutôt que la juxtaposition de toutes les théorisations ayant accompagné les étapes successives de l’histoire de ces industries et le développement de chacun de leurs secteurs ? Pourquoi une théorie originale, au lieu des approches industrielles proposées, par exemple, par l’économie ou la sociologie ? À ces questions la réponse est, d’une part, que la diversité des appréciations sur les enjeux des industries culturelles et informationnelles et leurs contradictions, d’un auteur à l’auteur, illustre la dimension dialectique du développement des industries culturelles et informationnelles elles-mêmes. D’autre part, la singularité de ces industries justifie le recours à un modèle d’analyse différent du modèle industriel standard.This paper deals with the birth and development of the cultural and informational industries theory. It arises from two questions. First, why one unified theory, rather than juxtaposing the different attempts to understand these industries step by step and sector by sector ? Second, why a specific theory, instead of borrowing from economy or sociology, for instance ? The answer is on the one hand that the contradictions among researchers about the issues of the cultural and informational industries demonstrate in themselves the dialectical nature of their development ; on the other hand, that the specificity of these industries requires an analysis model quite different from the standard model.

  19. La diversité culturelle et linguistique comme ressource à la créativité

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Enrica Piccardo

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available La mobilité grandissante de nos sociétés contemporaines s’accompagne d’une augmentation exponentielle de la diversité culturelle et linguistique. Face à ce constat, deux réactions opposées s’avèrent possibles : d’un côté une homogénéisation linguistique et culturelle progressive, de l’autre une valorisation de la pluralité en tant que ressource. La première vise à noyer toute diversité dans la/les langue(s et culture(s dominante(s, quitte à en préserver ici et là des simulacres sous le forme d’expressions isolées et de manifestations culturelles stéréotypées. La seconde, à l’inverse, s’interroge sur la richesse et le potentiel qu’une pluralité de langues et de cultures représente aussi bien au niveau des sociétés que des individus. Nous ferons appel à la notion de plurilinguisme telle qu’elle a été proposée par Daniel Coste, Danièle Moore et Geneviève Zarate et incorporée dans le Cadre européen de référence pour les langues (CECR et à la réflexion qui l’accompagne pour expliquer dans quelle mesure la diversité linguistique et culturelle peut être vue comme un catalyseur de créativité. La créativité étant une propriété émergeante d’un système complexe (Sawyer « The emergence of creativity » ; Goldstein ; Juignet ; Piccardo « Créativité et complexité : quels modèles, quelles conditions, quels enjeux ? », son étude nous permet de concevoir comment l’interaction d’un grand nombre d’éléments entre eux et avec l’environnement peut créer des opportunités pour que de nouvelles connexions et de nouvelles solutions émergent. Dans cette contribution, nous analyserons dans quelle mesure la diversité linguistique et culturelle, et notamment la notion de plurilinguisme et de pluriculturalisme (Coste, Moore et Zarate ; CECR, favorisent l’émergence des processus créatifs. Dans la conclusion, on tentera de dresser un bilan sans angélisme des avantages et des

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available Au Brésil comme au Maroc, le secteur agricole est marqué par des différences extrêmes en termes de taille d’exploitation, ainsi que de niveaux d’équipement, de capitalisation et de techniques. L’article présente la politique brésilienne d’appui à l’agriculture familiale, et quelques éléments de comparaison avec les choix faits au Maroc. Les politiques agricoles brésiliennes proposent depuis une vingtaine d’années un appui spécifique aux exploitations familiales, avec notamment la constitution d’un ministère spécifique. De nombreux dispositifs d’appui à l’agriculture familiale ont été mis en place, dont notamment des crédits à taux préférentiel et des programmes d’achat de denrées agricoles pour les institutions publiques (écoles, hôpitaux, etc.. Dans les zones rurales particulièrement fragiles, des dispositifs permettent une coordination entre l’ensemble des politiques publiques concernant ces zones. Enfin, la conception et la mise en oeuvre de ces politiques publiques se font avec une forte implication des syndicats agricoles. Les politiques publiques brésiliennes et marocaines reconnaissent la dualité du monde agricole, mais cette dualité est définie par zone au Maroc, tandis qu’elle est fondée sur des caractéristiques explicites des exploitations au Brésil. Dans les deux pays, le coeur des politiques publiques d’appui aux exploitations familiales porte sur l’aide à l’investissement. Au-delà de ce coeur commun, les politiques brésiliennes ont plus spécifiquement développé des approches au niveau des territoires locaux et associent plus fortement qu’au Maroc les organisations professionnelles agricoles représentant l’agriculture familiale dans la conception de l’action publique. La comparaison des politiques agricoles au Maroc et au Brésil sur quelques éléments permet de souligner la forte étendue des choix qu’il est possible de considérer, pour définir des

    2008-04-01

    Full Text Available Dans cette étude de sociologie de la connaissance, l’auteure aborde en perspective historique la question de l'identité culturelle du Brésil, question posée dès les premiers travaux de sciences sociales réalisés dans ce pays. Au xixe siècle, la reconnaissance de la diversité des héritages culturels brésiliens est opérée, mais elle achoppe au plan théorique sur le postulat de l’homogénéité culturelle et au plan idéologique sur le bioracisme latent des élites. Au début de xxe siècle, en même temps que s’opère un travail théorique de reformulation de la notion de culture comme synthèse syncrétique, se répand dans les métropoles du Sud-Est une nouvelle religion afro-brésilienne, la reformulation théorique et la nouvelle religion présentant une homologie de structure et de fonction. L’auteure met en lumière les liens entre les transformations de la société brésilienne d’un côté, les productions culturelles, intellectuelles ou religieuses de l’autre. Elle montre ensuite que si, en Europe, sous l’effet de la construction des États-nations, identité culturelle et identité nationale désignent deux réalités différentes, au Brésil l’identité culturelle est le fondement de l’identité nationale.Cultural identity and national identity in BrazilIn this study of knowledge sociology, the author deals with the question of cultural identity in Brazil in a historical perspective. In the 19th century, the variety of cultural Brazilian inheritances is recognized, but it stumbles – at a theoretical level – over the postulate of cultural homogeneity and – at an ideological level – over the latent bioracism of the elites. In the early 20th century, while a theoretical work of reformulation of the notion of culture as a synthesis of several influences is being processed, a new Afro-Brazilian religion is spreading in S.E. cities, those two presenting a similarity of structure and function.

    Full Text Available L'histoire des entreprises renvoie à la notion de génération comme maillon d'une chaîne dynastique qui assure le devenir de la firme. À partir du cas de grandes entreprises familiales qui s'implantent à Lyon à la fin du XIXe siècle, il s'agit d'étudier le rôle assumé par chacune des trois premières générations dans le développement de ces sociétés qui s'imposent dans l'économie locale et nationale. Loin de répondre à un principe qui voudrait que la première génération crée l'entreprise, la seconde la développe et la troisième la ruine, on constate que la réussite et la pérennité de la firme dépendent de la complémentarité entre ces trois premiers maillons de la chaîne dynastique. La génération des fondateurs allie inventivité et intuition économique mais manque d'assise technique, la génération des héritiers apporte à l'édifice un savoir-faire technicien qui permet à la firme de se développer dans un contexte plus concurrentiel la troisième génération, quant à elle, fait bénéficier l'affaire familiale de ses compétences scientifiques et d'un réseau relationnel qui permettent d'imposer la dynastie entrepreneuriale sur un plan tant économique que social.Company history refers to the idea that generations are the links in the dynastic chain that guarantee a firm’s destiny. By examining large family firms estahlished in Lyons at the end of the nineteenth-century, we study the role played by each of the first three generations in the development of these companies, which were essential to the local and national economies. Contrary to the pattern that assumes that the first generation creates a firm, the second develops it, and the third brings if to ruine, we argue that the success and longevity of these firms depended on the fact that those first three links vere complementary.

    2012-01-01

    Résumé Objectif Cette recherche visait à documenter la perception de la prise en charge chez les médecins résidents en médecine familiale. Type d’étude Un questionnaire électronique quantitatif bilingue de 10 questions. Contexte Québec. Participants Tous les résidents en médecine familiale au Québec, soit 747 résidents. Principaux paramètres de l’étude Le questionnaire visait à préciser les intentions des médecins résidents quant à leur perception de la prise en charge et son inclusion dans leur pratique, et les moyens qu’ils privilégieraient pour valoriser cet aspect de la pratique. Résultats Au total, 289 médecins résidents ont rempli le questionnaire (38,7 %). De ce nombre, 201 répondants ont indiqué qu’ils anticipaient faire de la prise en charge dans leurs 5 premières années de pratique. Les facteurs inhibitifs les plus soulignés dans la section commentaires sont la difficulté à quitter la pratique, la complexité des cas et les responsabilités face au suivi du patient. Les plans régionaux d’effectifs médicaux et les activités médicales particulières ne sont pas ressortis de manière significative comme facteurs inhibitifs. Selon les répondants, la valorisation de la médecine familiale devrait passer par la promotion auprès des étudiants en médecine, par une modification de la culture institutionnelle et par une augmentation de la visibilité des médecins résidents et des patrons en médecine familiale au sein des équipes dans les milieux de formation. Conclusion Cette étude permet de conclure que les médecins résidents québécois prévoient inclure la prise en charge dans leur pratique. Toutefois, des solutions tangibles doivent être établies pour mitiger le poids de la pratique en cabinet et continuer à promouvoir la prise en charge auprès des jeunes médecins de famille.

These celebrity practices as diplomats, experts, and humanitarians in international affairs illustrate the diverse and contradictory forms of engagement......Celebrity engagement in global “helping” is not a simple matter of highly photogenic caring for needy others across borders; it is a complex relationship of power that often produces contradictory functions in relation to the goals of humanitarianism, development, and advocacy. This article argues...... that celebrities are acting as other elite actors in international affairs: investing considerable capital into processes that are highly political. It traces the emergence and practices of the elite politics of celebrities in North-South relations, an evolution made possible by recent changes in aid practices...

  16. Revolution in Detection Affairs

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Stern W.

    2013-11-02

    The detection of nuclear or radioactive materials for homeland or national security purposes is inherently difficult. This is one reason detection efforts must be seen as just one part of an overall nuclear defense strategy which includes, inter alia, material security, detection, interdiction, consequence management and recovery. Nevertheless, one could argue that there has been a revolution in detection affairs in the past several decades as the innovative application of new technology has changed the character and conduct of detection operations. This revolution will likely be most effectively reinforced in the coming decades with the networking of detectors and innovative application of anomaly detection algorithms.

Car il s’agit de faire une approche de l’acte de communication à travers la production littéraire et culturelle algérienne d’expression française, il importe donc de faire une sorte de généalogie, si l’on peut dire, de la communication contestataire et ses rapports mêmes avec la production culturelle. Quitte à anticiper, disons dès à présent que traiter des débuts de la contestation est un thème pour le moins paradoxal. La langue et la culture françaises elles-mêmes pourraient être, les premiers objets contestés.

  20. Empowerment et diversité culturelle : quelques prolégomènes

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alain G. Gagnon

    2010-07-01

    Full Text Available Le présent texte explore l’articulation entre l’empowerment et la diversité culturelle, et notamment les voies prometteuses du jumelage entre ces deux termes. L’apport de la philosophie de Charles Taylor conjuguée aux récentes théories du fédéralisme permet de porter un regard nouveau sur la thématique des revendications identitaires en milieu urbain et d’esquisser des solutions institutionnelles pour répondre au double défi posé par le pluralisme culturel et de la nouvelle configuration économico-politique sous-tendant la mondialisation. Malgré ses aspects positifs, cet article entend montrer, dans le sillon des travaux de Bernard Jouve, les limites et l’utilisation équivoque que l’on peut faire de l’empowerment, qui sert parfois à justifier un désengagement de l’État-providence en faveur des populations les plus démunies, et qui ne présente pas toujours les garanties nécessaires pour lutter contre les discriminations survenant au sein des Minorities within Minorities.This article explores linkages between empowerment and cultural diversity largely defined, and at times a promising convergence between the two notions. Charles Taylor’s contribution to current theories of federalism allows us to cast a rejuvenated  look on cultural claims in urban centers and to sketch institutional avenues to face the dual challenge posed by cultural pluralism and the new socio-political configuration underlying globalization. In spite of some very positive aspects, and following Bernard Jouve’s intellectual insights, this text illustrates the extent to which the notion of empowerment can also be deceiving as it might add limitations for weaker communities, and create new hurdles as the undermining of the welfare state has showned. In addition, empowerment does not always provide guarantees to counter discrimation as the case of «Minorities witin Minorities» reveal.

    Gaëtan Tremblay

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available Après avoir rappelé les grandes lignes de la théorie des industries culturelles, l’auteur relie le “nouveau modèle” de l’économie créative aux diverses tentatives pour nommer et interpréter les changements qui affectent les sociétés industrialisées depuis la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, de la société post-industrielle de Daniel Bell et d’Alain Touraine à la société de la connaissance de l’UNESCO. Il procède ensuite à l’examen critique des définitions et des évaluations des industries créatives. Il explique comment ces dernières reposent sur un usage et une interprétation de données statistiques fort contestables. Il discute les résultats surprenants, voire aberrants, auxquels en arrivent les auteurs du rapport de la Conférence des Nations Unies sur le Commerce et le Développement (CNUCED dans leur tentative de mesurer la taille de l’économie créative sur l’ensemble de la planète. Enfin, il tente d’interpr��ter les motifs sous-jacents à la promotion de cette nouvelle version de l’idéologie de la société de l’information. Si les données disponibles montrent que l’art et la culture ne comptent que pour une valeur relativement faible des industries créatives, ils sont au cœur de l’opération idéologique. L’évocation de la créativité permet de jeter des ponts en direction des activités culturelles, dont l’intégration donne du lustre et de la légitimité à l’ensemble. Surtout, l’arrimage aux industries culturelles permet de se réclamer des mêmes spécificités économiques que l’analyse a permis de dégager au cours des quatre dernières décennies et de revendiquer la même protection, les mêmes interventions que les pouvoirs publics ont déployées au fil des ans dans les secteurs artistiques et culturels.

    Full Text Available Dans mon étude, je vais essayer de présenter et d’analyser en bref l’influence du modèle national français sur le projet national roumain à l’époque de la modernisation de notre société, au 19ème siècle. Les prémisses théoriques de notre analyse peuvent é formulées ainsi: a. le nationalisme est une réalité récente qui s’est formulée et affirmée en étroite relation avec le procès de la modernisation; b. le nationalisme n’est pas quelque chose de particulier en tant qu’idéologie politique, mais, en même temps, il prend des formes et aspects divers, raison pour laquelle il est plus utile de parler de nationalismes aux traits et formes de manifestation spécifiques; c. le nationalisme a ses racines dans l’espace occidental au temps des Lumières irradie en même temps qu’elles à travers le continent entier. On ne peut pas parler d’éléments constitutifs du nationalisme en tant qu’idéologie qui soient fondamentalement différents, mais de formes de manifestation différentes. Dans ce cas, nous ne pouvons pas être d’accord avec la « dichotomie Hans Kohn » et, surtout, avec ses implications de nature éthique et morale; d. l’ordre européen a été changé dans ses coordonnées essentielles avec l’apparition et le développement des états nation et a imposé avec nécessité un devenir dans le sens national comme une condition de l’acceptation dans son sein. En dehors de la manière dont, souvent, par transculturation et aculturation, dans le sens de l’anthropologie culturelle, la France et le modèle national fourni par elle ont exercé une influence sur la société roumaine moderne, il faut remarquer l’action politique directe, pragmatique, de celle-ci par le fait d’imposer dans cette région des points propres à son programme national. Les Roumains ont compris et accepté le modèle de l’état nation et de l’ordre basé sur celui-ci d’une manière propre et créative. Les

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Fernando do Nascimento Gonçalves

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available Nombre d’artistes s’occupent du corps en tant que dispositif de production de significations sociales (le corps habillé, docile, masculin, féminin, citoyen, étranger, esthétisé, sain, malade, monstrueux, etc.. Le plasticien brésilien Alex Flemming se situe dans ce courant. Son travail se caractérise par une profusion d’installations, sculptures et photographies où le corps devient le médium de la problématisation du politique, de la mémoire collective et de l’identité dans la culture occidentale contemporaine. Cet article se propose d’analyser comment, chez l’artiste, le corps est construit en tant qu’élément d’analyse de phénomènes tels que la «dépersonnalisation» de l’individu, la production des identités culturelles et de la violence dans les conflits internationaux. Il s’intéressera particulièrement à montrer comment le corps pourrait aujourd’hui mettre en évidence les dimensions «subjectives» de tels phénomènes ainsi que les relations de pouvoir «moins visibles» qu’elles impliquent.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Thomas Perrin

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Cet article porte sur l’action culturelle transfrontalière dans l’eurorégion Nord-Transmanche. Cette organisation de coopération territoriale a associé, de 1991 à 2004, la région française du Nord-Pas-de-Calais au Comté anglais du Kent et aux trois régions belges : Région wallonne, Région flamande et Région de Bruxelles-Capitale. La dimension pionnière et historique de cette eurorégion, mais également le fait qu’elle n’a pas perduré, permettent d’illustrer à la fois les potentialités, limites et paradoxes de la mobilisation de la culture dans le contexte des organisations de coopération territoriale. Si le processus d’institutionnalisation de l’eurorégion en tant que telle est resté inachevé, l’espace Nord-Transmanche reste un espace de coopération dynamique, en particulier dans le domaine culturel et la référence eurorégionale reste significative pour de nombreux acteurs. Cet exemple interroge ainsi les enjeux et la réalité de la construction d’une Europe des territoires et de la culture, notamment par rapport aux discours institutionnels dont ces questions font généralement l’objet.

    Full Text Available Le gouvernement de Lula a considérablement amplifié et diversifié le Programme d'Appui à l'Agriculture Familiale (PRONAF, créé par le gouvernement Fernando Henrique Cardoso en 1995. Ce choix affirmé sur la longue durée pour l'agriculture familiale, peut surprendre dans un Brésil qui a toujours, tout au long de son histoire, privilégié l’agriculture « d'entreprise » : latifundia et entreprises agricoles. L'article analyse les mécanismes qui ont conduit à ces choix sociétaux, en examinant en particulier le rôle des organisations syndicales et paysannes dans la « construction » du Programme d'Appui à l'Agriculture Familiale (PRONAF et du Programme de Développement Durable des Territoires Ruraux (PDSTR. La permanence de l'agriculture familiale dans l'histoire brésilienne est expliquée par sa capacité d'adaptation et de résistance, même face à des projets de modernisation irréalistes qui ne prenaient pas en compte les avantages comparatifs de l'agriculture familiale. Cette capacité d'adaptation naît d'une expérimentation au quotidien, dans des histoires de « développement local ». Des groupes d'agriculteurs testent techniques, pratiques ou organisations. Le dynamisme de ces mouvements en a fait des partenaires naturels de l'Etat dans l'élaboration et la mise en œuvre du PRONAF.Au-delà des difficultés et du manque de moyens, au quotidien, dans les relations entre acteurs, une pratique de mise en œuvre du PRONAF a été inventée. Une nouvelle gouvernance s'est instituée entre mouvement social et gouvernement. . Pour le MDA, et plus particulièrement, pour le Secrétariat du Développement Territorial (SDT, le territoire est le lieu privilégié de cette nouvelle gouvernance. Le PRONAF et le PDSTR sont représentatifs de ce que tendent à devenir les politiques publiques pour répondre aux défis d'un futur, toujours plus incertain.

    2012-01-01

    Résumé Objectif: Notre étude a pour but d’évaluer les facteurs de risque associés au trouble déficitaire de l’attention et de l’hyperactivité (TDAH) en termes de comorbidités et de facteurs d’adversité à l’intérieur des familles avec un TDAH. Méthodologie: 137 parents de 104 enfants avec un TDAH et 40 parents de 34 enfants contrôles ont répondu aux items d’un questionnaire. Des tests Chi-carrés et des tests de Student ont mesuré l’association de chaque item avec les groupes et les différences entre les groupes. Résultats: Les enfants avec un TDAH avaient des performances scolaires plus faibles et une plus forte prévalence des troubles d’apprentissage, oppositionnel, des conduites et anxieux que celle des enfants contrôles. Des difficultés d’apprentissage étaient plus souvent rapportées chez les pères d’enfants avec un TDAH. Par ailleurs, l’isolement social et les accidents de la route étaient davantage présents chez les mères d’enfants avec un TDAH. Ces dernières souffraient plus de dépression et de trouble anxieux et prenaient davantage de médicaments que les mères contrôles. Conclusion: L’étude de facteurs de risque révèle un lien entre les parents et les enfants, spécifiquement la présence de dépression parmi les mères d’enfants avec un TDAH et de difficultés d’apprentissage chez les pères, suggérant une composante familiale dans le trouble. La sous-représentation du TDAH chez les pères d’enfants avec un TDAH est discutée. PMID:23133459

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Joy Raynaud

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available Depuis plus de mille ans, la diaspora chinoise repose essentiellement sur des réseaux structurés d’entraide permettant la réussite individuelle et collective sur le plan social (intégration, économique (réussite financière et culturel (conservation d’une identité culturelle chinoise. Mais que deviennent ces réseaux sociaux à l’heure de la mondialisation, avec l’usage massif des réseaux techniques et technologiques ? A partir d’une analyse de l’état de l’art, ce travail propose une synthèse des similitudes observées dans les communautés de la diaspora chinoise avec l’usage d’Internet. Plusieurs études démontrent qu’Internet fournit aux nouveaux immigrants chinois la possibilité de redéfinir leurs identités culturelles hybrides et fragmentées, entre rupture et continuité de la tradition. Ce réseau technologique bouleverse les concepts de distance et de territoire et constitue un outil essentiel pour l’adaptation des immigrants dans le pays d’accueil. La proximité spatiale n’est plus une nécessité. Internet génère, chez les immigrants de la diaspora, le sentiment « d’être présent » dans le pays d’origine, pourtant situé à plusieurs milliers de kilomètres.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Didier Lassalle

    2007-11-01

    Full Text Available Le concept d’hybridité/métissage, né au 19ème siècle, a été récupéré, réhabilité et transformé par les penseurs britanniques de la postmodernité, tels que Stuart Hall, Homi Bhabba ou Paul Gilroy, dans les années 1980 et au début des années 1990. En dépit de ses limites conceptuelles, le concept réactualisé a pris racine et a eu son heure de gloire, sous le vocable d’hybridité culturelle, lors de l’arrivée au pouvoir du New Labour de Tony Blair. Il est aujourd’hui combattu à la fois par ceux qui s’inquiètent de la possible dissolution / disparition des cultures minoritaires au sein d’un vaste ensemble métissé indéfinissable ainsi que par ceux qui refusent « l’abâtardissement » de la culture britannique vécue comme monolithique et immuable. Par contre, l’hybridité ethnique en constante progression au sein de certains groupes ethniques minoritaires (Antillais, Africains, Chinois est, quant à elle, promise à un grand avenir, signe de la vigueur et de la progression inéluctable du processus d’assimilation/intégration.The concept of hybridity / mixed race emerged in the 19th century. In the 1980s and at the beginning of the 1990s, it was retrieved, rehabilitated and transformed by postmodern British thinkers such as Stuart Hall, Homi Bhabba and Paul Gilroy. In spite of its conceptual limitations, the new version of the concept has taken root and, under the term cultural hybridity, entered the mainstream with the advent of the New Labour government under Tony Blair. It is now contested both by those who fear for the possible dissolution or disappearance of minority culture in a vast global and indefinable mixed culture, and those who refuse the ‘bastardisation’ of British culture which is perceived by them as monolithic and unchanging. In contrast, within certain ethnic minority groups (Caribbean, African, Chinese constantly evolving ethnic hybridity seems to demonstrate the strength and

    Full Text Available De nombreuses études ont souligné l’importance de la proximité résidentielle entre membres d’une même famille en Europe du Sud. Mais rares sont les travaux qui ont étudié ce phénomène au sein des classes supérieures, où la proximité familiale atteint pourtant des taux records et à une échelle intra-urbaine, alors que les formes d’agrégation familiale dépendent fortement du contexte urbain. C’est sur cette importance des effets de la position sociale et des structures urbaines sur la proximité familiale en Europe du Sud que voudrait insister cet article, en se limitant à un milieu précis, celui des classes supérieures napolitaines. L’enquête s’est fondée sur le croisement de sources quantitatives avec une campagne d’entretiens ayant permis de reconstituer avec précision le parcours résidentiel de 50 parentèles de la vieille bourgeoisie napolitaine dans la ville sur quatre générations. Il en ressort que si les formes de proximité familiale observées dans les classes supérieures de la ville (« quasi-cohabitations » en immeuble et regroupements en rues voisines renvoient bien à des modèles culturels sud-européens, elles revêtent aussi de fortes spécificités car il s’agit de vastes concentrations familiales durablement reproduites dans les mêmes quartiers de centre-ville sur plus de trois générations. Outre les mécanismes « familiaux » du marché du logement, ce sont donc aussi l’emprise patrimoniale sur la ville et la position des familles étudiées dans un cycle d’intégration urbain qui expliquent leur forte concentration dans l’espace.Numerous studies have stressed the importance of the residential proximity of family members in southern Europe. Far fewer studies, however, have examined this phenomenon within the upper social classes, where familial proximity reaches record levels, or at the intra-urban level, although forms of familial aggregation are highly dependent on

  15. Social theory and current affairs: a framework for intellectual engagement.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stones, Rob

    2014-06-01

    The paper aims to facilitate more adequate critical engagement with current affairs events by journalists, and with current affairs texts by audiences. It draws on social theory to provide the intellectual resources to enable this. The academic ambition is for the framework to be adopted and developed by social thinkers in producing exemplary critical readings of news and current affairs texts. To this end it is offered as a research paradigm. The paper situates its argument in relation to the wider literature in media and cultural studies, acknowledging the subtle skills required to appreciate the relative autonomy of texts. However, it draws attention to the lack of an adequate perspective with which to assess the frames, representations, and judgments within news and current affairs texts. To address this lacuna it proposes the conception of a social-theoretical frame, based on a number of meta-theoretical approaches, designed to provide audiences with a systematic means of addressing the status and adequacy of individual texts. Social theoretical frames can reveal the shortcomings of media framing of the contextual fields within which news and current affairs events take place. Two illustrative case studies are used to indicate the value and potential of the approach: the analysis of a short newspaper report of the return of protesters to Cairo's Tahrir Square in 2011, and a critique of four current affairs reports from various genres on the political turmoil in Thailand leading up to the clashes of May 2010.

  19. Shareholders' Participation in the Affairs of Public Companies: An Insight

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lokulo-Sodipe, J. O.

    2010-04-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this study was to have an insight into theparticipation of shareholders in the affairs of publiccompanies. The information gathered in relation tothis study revealed that the only way shareholders canactively participate in the affairs of public companies wasby attending the Annual General Meeting (AGM andexercise the powers reserved for them. However, as a matterof law, there is no enforceable obligation on the shareholdersto attend the AGM of their companies for that matter, orindeed, actively participate in the affairs of the company,but such shareholders remain bound by any decision themeeting may take, their nonparticipation notwithstanding.Conclusively, the study submitted that active participationof shareholders in the AGM is capable of saving theircompanies from possible lapses that may be as a resultof mismanagement. Therefore shareholders should attendmeetings of their companies, mostly the AGM.

  2. Museum security and the Thomas Crown Affair.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Michaud, E. C. (Nuclear Engineering Division)

    2010-01-01

    Over the years, I've daydreamed about stealing a Vermeer, a Picasso, or Rembrandt. It tickles me, as much as watching the reboot of The Thomas Crown Affair. Why is it, do you suppose, so much fun to think about stealing a world renowned piece off the wall of a major metropolitan museum? Is it the romantic thoughts of getting away with it, walking past infrared detectors, and pressure sensors ala Indiana Jones with the sack of sand to remove the idol without triggering the security system? Is it the idea of snatching items with such fantastic prices, where the romance of possessing an item of such value is less intoxicating than selling it to a private collector for it to never be seen again? I suspect others share my daydreams as they watch theater or hear of a brazen daylight heist at museums around the world, or from private collections. Though when reality sets in, the mind of the security professional kicks in. How could one do it, why would one do it, what should you do once it's done? The main issue a thief confronts when acquiring unique goods is how to process or fence them. They become very difficult to sell because they are one-of-a-kind, easy to identify, and could lead to the people involved with the theft. The whole issue of museum security takes up an ironic twist when one considers the secretive British street artist 'Banksy'. Banksy has made a name for himself by brazenly putting up interesting pieces of art in broad daylight (though many critics don't consider his work to be art) on building walls, rooftops, or even museums. I bring him up for a interesting take on what may become a trend in museum security. In March of 2005, Banksy snuck a piece of his called 'Vandalized Oil Painting' into the Brooklyn Museum's Great Historical Painting Wing, plus 3 other pieces into major museums in New York. Within several days, 2 paintings had been torn down, but 2 stayed up much longer. In his home country of the UK, a

    Full Text Available Cet article étudie la confrontation des constructions identitaires locales et du tourisme culturel dans le Salento, une région des Pouilles où, depuis une dizaine d’années, des politiques culturelles et un marketing territorial avisés ont relancé le tourisme. Ce processus a vu le jour à partir de la revalorisation de la langue locale d’origine grecque (le griko et de la patrimonialisation de la tradition ethnologique du tarentisme et de la musique qui accompagnait le rite d’autrefois, la pizzica. Le succès de cette « renaissance » est pourtant ambigu et sa rançon pourrait être la vitrification et la vitrinification d’une société offerte aux touristes de façon esthétisante et exotisante. Les images proposées aux touristes et réappropriées par ces derniers finissent en fait par réintroduire les préjugés d’une terre hors du temps et de l’histoire qui séduit par son caractère primitif. Or les problèmes sociaux restent et demandent une prise en compte sérieuse alors que le nombre de touristes et de résidences secondaires augmente.This paper studies the link between local identity reconstructions and the spread of cultural and ethnic tourism in Salento (Apulia, where, during the last ten years, cultural politics and territorial marketing have rekindled tourism. This process stemmed from the revalorization of the local Greek-based language (griko and from the heritage policies concerning tarantism and the pizzica, the music formerly used during the rituals. The success of this so-called “renaissance” is nonetheless ambiguous and its ransom could very well be the showcasing of a society offered to tourists in an aesthetic and exotic fashion. The images offered to and internalized by tourists, actually end up reinforcing the prejudices of a timeless, a-historical land, appealing because of its primitive nature.

  14. Teratology Public Affairs Committee position paper: maternal obesity and pregnancy.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Scialli, Anthony R

    2006-02-01

    Compared to normal-weight women, obese women have an increased risk of infertility and pregnancy complications. The most consistently described pregnancy complications are hypertensive disorders, gestational diabetes mellitus, thromboembolic events, and cesarean section. Fetal and neonatal complications may include congenital malformations, macrosomia, and shoulder dystocia. The literature suggests that women with a body mass index (BMI) >or=30 have approximately double the risk of having a child with a neural tube defect (NTD) compared to normal-weight women, and the increased risk associated with higher maternal body weight does not appear to be modified by folic acid supplementation. The Public Affairs Committee of the Teratology Society supports the public health initiatives identified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2004 and the research initiatives identified by the National Institutes of Health in 2004. The Public Affairs Committee recommends that clinicians counsel women about appropriate caloric intake and exercise and that health-care providers educate parents about appropriate childhood nutrition. Breast-feeding should be encouraged based on evidence of a protective effect against childhood obesity, as well as other health advantages.

  15. Representation of Refugees, Asylum-Seekers and Refugee Affairs In Hungarian Dailies

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lilla VICSEK

    2008-11-01

    Full Text Available How does the press in Hungary write about refugees, asylum-seekers and refugee affairs? We sought to answer this question. Articles appearing in 2005 and 2006 in two leading national Hungarian dailies were examined with quantitative content analysis. The results show that the articles analyzed often treat refugee affairs as an “official” political matter. The high proportion of legislation and political positions conveys the image that refugee affairs are a state or intergovernmental matter, an “official”, legal, political issue rather than for example a humanitarian question. Most of the articles published in both papers write about problems and conflicts in connection with refugee affairs. The negative media image has different significance for different topics. We argue that the question of refugee affairs is a topic where the image shown by the media is of great relevance: the media can be a more important source of information on this subject than personal contacts.

  17. Female genital mutilation. Council on Scientific Affairs, American Medical Association.

    Science.gov (United States)

    1995-12-06

    Female genital mutilation is the medically unnecessary modification of female genitalia. Female genital mutilation typically occurs at about 7 years of age, but mutilated women suffer severe medical complications throughout their adult lives. Female genital mutilation most frequently occurs in Africa, the Middle East, and Muslim parts of Indonesia and Malaysia, and it is generally part of a ceremonial induction into adult society. Recent political and economic problems in these regions, however, have increased the numbers of students and refugees to the United States. Consequently, US physicians are treating an increasing number of mutilated patients. The Council on Scientific Affairs recommends that US physicians join the World Health Organization, the World Medical Association, and other major health care organizations in opposing all forms of medically unnecessary surgical modification of the female genitalia.

  18. The assassination of the Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Unsgaard, Edvard; Meloy, J Reid

    2011-03-01

    On September 10, 2003, Anna Lindh, the Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs, was assassinated. The offender, a 24-year-old man, was a socially isolated, culturally and familially dislocated, yet academically quite competent young man who became enthralled with the habitual criminality of some of his relatives and their associates, and then psychiatrically decompensated in his early twenties. He had a history of serious violence before the crime, including the gross assault with a knife of his alcoholic and abusive father when he was 17, stalking, and extortion. At least a year prior to the assassination, he confided to a friend his desire to attack someone famous in front of many people. A definitive motive for the crime was not possible to establish. This was an act of intended, yet opportunistic violence toward a national political figure. The dynamics of the case are placed in the context of other attacks on Western European and U.S. politicians.

    A five-year plan is presented to guide the use of NASA resources in administering a focused and consistent set of aeronautics and space science education programs. Major initiatives outlined in this plan fall into two categories: programmatic priorities and institutional priorities. Programmatic priorities for this plan include elementary education, teacher education, underrepresented minority participation, educational technology and the Aerospace Education Services Project (AESP). Institutional priorities highlighted in this plan include university programs, educational publications and their distribution, educational partnerships with public and private organizations, educational research and evaluation, and activities of the educational affairs administration. The plan's aim is to directly and indirectly help to ensure an adequate pool of talented scientists, engineers and technical personnel to keep NASA at the forefront of advancements for the 21st century.

Il s’avère que les pratiques organisationnelles positives auraient les mêmes effets sur les salariées régulières que sur celles qui ont un statut précaire, cependant ces dernières bénéficient rarement de ce soutien. Quant aux dysfonctionnements organisationnels, les personnels précaires disposent de moins de marges de manœuvre pour les pallier. Ils sont donc doublement à risque au regard de leur santé et de leur sécurité au travail.The data from this study corroborate the main results of many studies on the relationships between job precariousness and increased occupational health and safety (OHS risks. This project consists of four studies of cases of local community service centre (CLSC homecare services (HS and shows how work organization can have a positive or negative effect on the protective strategies used by HS homecare workers and nurses. Positive organizational practices would have the same effects on regular employees as on those with a precarious status; however, the latter rarely benefit from this support. As for organizational dysfunction, precarious employees have less margin of maneuver to compensate for it. They therefore face a two-fold greater occupational health and safety risk.

  7. Gender characteristics of legal conscience in internal affairs agencies staff

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kuznetsova O.V.

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available This article presents the empirical research results of the level of legal conscience forming in law enforcement officials. The study of gender specifics of personnel is now becoming more and more relevant due to a constant increase in the number of women entering the Ministry of Internal Affairs service. The study involved 160 male and 120 female staff members. Analysis of the results revealed a general legal conscience trend typical for male and female employees which manifests in a high level of legal knowledge, adequate understanding of group relativity of moral and ethical norms, civic un-engagement and disinterest to leadership role. This trend reflects a certain viewpoint when human rights are considered to include only freedom, independence and personal self-assertion without responsibility and civic duties. It was found that female employees have higher level of legal conscience forming than male employees. This led to the conclusion of a high-availability of female employees to comply with legal regulations and requirements.

  4. Things That are Near Though Distant: Extramarital Affairs in Heian-Period Japan

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Matthew Grubits

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available According to historian William McCullough, a society cannot be understood without an appreciation of its marriage institutions, for marriage institutions are a dominant strand in the fabric of any society. In the Heian period, however, there was an even more dominant strand in the fabric of society than marriage that impinged on the relationships between aristocratic men and women. As historian Ivan Morris points out, the most prevalent relationships between men and women were extramarital affairs. If an appreciation of marriage institutions is necessary for us to understand Heian society, then an appreciation of affairs is likewise necessary. Few historians have addressed the subject of affairs, though they are central to the most notable texts from the period. This article addresses this gap in scholarship by exploring why affairs were so prevalent during the Heian period. This exploration involves looking at the marriage institution, perceptions of sexuality, belief systems and, importantly, aestheticism. Heian society was intensely aesthetic – a great emphasis was placed on pathos, beauty and aesthetic acts such as composing poetry. This paper argues that affairs were themselves aesthetic acts; that is, they were occasions of aesthetic expression. Because aristocrats had a preoccupation with aestheticism, they embraced affairs.

  5. Dengue surveillance in Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities, 2007-2010.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Patricia L Schirmer

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Although dengue is endemic in Puerto Rico (PR, 2007 and 2010 were recognized as epidemic years. In the continental United States (US, outside of the Texas-Mexico border, there had not been a dengue outbreak since 1946 until dengue re-emerged in Key West, Florida (FL, in 2009-2010. The objective of this study was to use electronic and manual surveillance systems to identify dengue cases in Veterans Affairs (VA healthcare facilities and then to clinically compare dengue cases in Veterans presenting for care in PR and in FL. METHODOLOGY: Outpatient encounters from 1/2007-12/2010 and inpatient admissions (only available from 10/2009-12/2010 with dengue diagnostic codes at all VA facilities were identified using VA's Electronic Surveillance System for Early Notification of Community-based Epidemics (ESSENCE. Additional case sources included VA data from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention BioSense and VA infection preventionists. Case reviews were performed. Categorical data was compared using Mantel-Haenszel or Fisher Exact tests and continuous variables using t-tests. Dengue case residence was mapped. FINDINGS: Two hundred eighty-eight and 21 PR and FL dengue cases respectively were identified. Of 21 FL cases, 12 were exposed in Key West and 9 were imported. During epidemic years, FL cases had significantly increased dengue testing and intensive care admissions, but lower hospitalization rates and headache or eye pain symptoms compared to PR cases. There were no significant differences in clinical symptoms, laboratory abnormalities or outcomes between epidemic and non-epidemic year cases in FL and PR. Confirmed/probable cases were significantly more likely to be hospitalized and have thrombocytopenia or leukopenia compared to suspected cases. CONCLUSIONS: Dengue re-introduction in the continental US warrants increased dengue surveillance and education in VA. Throughout VA, under-testing of suspected cases highlights the need to

  6. THE ANALYSIS OF HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT (HRM IN MARITIME AFFAIRS

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Goran Vučur

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Specifics of human resources management in maritime affairs is reflected in the fact that part of the staff of enterprises is displaced on ships which represent a specific and isolated environment. Specifics of human resources management on ships are focused to decision-making in crisis situations, the deployment of personnel and work load, and giving orders to perform certain tasks. In this context it is necessary to examine the management of human resources which should include managing, motivation, rewarding, communication, education, advancement, decision-making and employee satisfaction in the specific environment. The aim of the research is to analyze the above stated parameters and connect them with the characteristics of companies in the sector of maritime logistics. The purpose of this paper is to provide an insight into the human resources management in companies involved in logistics in maritime transport i.e. delivery and transport of goods. Taking into account their differences, it can be concluded that companies in the maritime industry have different human resource management systems, which affects the company's business. The research methodology is based on the collection of data through questionnaires and databases created from them. The study included a total of 31 companies. According to the collected data, statistical analysis will be conducted which will be based on correlation and descriptive statistics. The analysis of the theoretical basis has not confirmed the existence of similar studies that take into account the observation of human resources management on ships. Therefore, it can be concluded that the research will be of interest for the field of business logistics as well as the whole scientific and professional community. Recommendations related to the current and future human resource management in maritime companies will be given in the conclusion.

  7. Divorce your car: ending the love affair with the automobile

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Alvord, K.

    2000-07-01

    This book is a guide for people wishing to liberate themselves from their addiction to cars and the automobile culture. It is a repository of examples and actions that individuals and communities can take to reduce dependence on the automobile. The range of possibilities run from using cars less to not owning one at all. The book provides a humorous yet clear-headed approach to a greener world and maps out the road to how people can live happily ever after by breaking free of 'auto-cracy', without insisting on people in car-dependent countries quit their automotive addiction instantly. Nevertheless, it clearly articulates the connection between automobiles, their arteries (i.e. highways) and effluents (i.e. greenhouse gases and particulate emissions), and the increasing number and severity of natural disasters between the urban renewal and freeway construction that, in the author's view, helped ignite the riots in Watts, Newark and Detroit. The disastrous societal and geophysical effects of the automobile are demonstrated in great abundance, and the mountain of evidence of the systematic abuse of the planet that the book provides is a stunning refutation of the notion that technology is neutral. The automobile is accused of being not only the linchpin of Western and primarily American industrialism and resource extraction, it is also accused of being the chief suspect in a century-long theft of time, conviviality and beauty. How to bring about a change in people's love affair with their cars is difficult to comprehend but this author has a multitude of useful suggestions which seem to suggest that it is possible. There is a list of 104 'selected references' and an extensive list of 'other resources'.

  10. Research on geo-ontology construction based on spatial affairs

    Science.gov (United States)

    Li, Bin; Liu, Jiping; Shi, Lihong

    2008-12-01

    Geo-ontology, a kind of domain ontology, is used to make the knowledge, information and data of concerned geographical science in the abstract to form a series of single object or entity with common cognition. These single object or entity can compose a specific system in some certain way and can be disposed on conception and given specific definition at the same time. Ultimately, these above-mentioned worked results can be expressed in some manners of formalization. The main aim of constructing geo-ontology is to get the knowledge of the domain of geography, and provide the commonly approbatory vocabularies in the domain, as well as give the definite definition about these geographical vocabularies and mutual relations between them in the mode of formalization at different hiberarchy. Consequently, the modeling tool of conception model of describing geographic Information System at the hiberarchy of semantic meaning and knowledge can be provided to solve the semantic conception of information exchange in geographical space and make them possess the comparatively possible characters of accuracy, maturity and universality, etc. In fact, some experiments have been made to validate geo-ontology. During the course of studying, Geo-ontology oriented to flood can be described and constructed by making the method based on geo-spatial affairs to serve the governmental departments at all levels to deal with flood. Thereinto, intelligent retrieve and service based on geoontology of disaster are main functions known from the traditional manner by using keywords. For instance, the function of dealing with disaster information based on geo-ontology can be provided when a supposed flood happened in a certain city. The correlative officers can input some words, such as "city name, flood", which have been realized semantic label, to get the information they needed when they browse different websites. The information, including basic geographical information and flood distributing

    Science.gov (United States)

    Anger, J P; Goullé, J P

    2006-01-01

    The famous Lafarge affair which took place in Tulle (Corrèze, France) in 1840, has never ceased to interest the general public because some doubts have remained even after the pronunciation of the judgment. Another hypothesis than arsenicum poisoning has been formulated in 1980 by Professor P. Lepine who believes in a paratyphoid fever occuring after food poisoning. This assumption and the discovery of exceptional family documents in 2004 by Edouard de Lamaze, a distant cousin of Emma Pontier, the confidante of Marie Lafarge, sheds a new light on this mysterious affair.

    2002-01-01

    Kraepelin and Freud have indirectly, via Max Isserlin and Carl Gustav Jung, disputed about their completely different blueprints of psychiatric or psychological disturbances. Mainly in the Isserlin-affaire the dispute reached personal and bitter forms. In this affair Bleuler sided with Kraepelin. In the end of the dispute Bleuler just as Jung had separated from Freud, if in different ways and with different motivations. The discussion between Kraepelin-Isserlin on the one side and Freud on the other faded away. The course of the dispute, which mainly the psychoanalytic literature alludes to frequently, is being delineated here for the first time.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Laurence Brunet

    2010-07-01

    Full Text Available Le propos de cette étude est de tenter de dégager le degré d’accueil du droit français à l’égard de pratiques et de normes musulmanes stigmatisées dans la société française. Le sort en France de quatre institutions familiales est ici envisagé : le mariage polygamique, la répudiation, l’interdiction de l’établissement forcé de la filiation hors mariage, l’interdiction de l’adoption. Le problème se pose devant les tribunaux français lorsqu’il s’agit de faire reconnaître en France une situation constituée à l’étranger. Ainsi du mariage polygamique, célébré dans un pays musulman, d’un homme qui ensuite a vécu et est décédé en France, ou encore de la répudiation prononcée au Maroc ou en Algérie d’une femme musulmane qui vit en France. La question est similaire lorsqu’il s’agit de faire établir la filiation d’un enfant qui, en vertu des règles de son statut de droit musulman, ne peut faire établir sa paternité hors mariage en justice ou être adopté par un individu français. Au stade de la réception de ces institutions musulmanes en France, c’est la question de leur conformité à l’ordre public international français qui est déterminante. En effet le mécanisme de l’ordre public international français fixe le seuil à partir duquel l’institution étrangère est rejetée.La position des juges est marquée par le souci de n’écarter l’application des règles étrangères qu’aux situations qui ont des liens étroits avec le territoire français. Cette conception « proximiste » de l’ordre public milite en faveur d’une approche relativiste des divergences entre les systèmes juridiques. Le compromis ainsi atteint présente l’avantage de la modération mais il peut aussi aboutir à un traitement discriminatoire de certains enfants laissés sans filiation. L’enfant abandonné dans un pays musulman et recueilli par un couple français ne peut en effet b

Celui-ci a été analysé dans la littérature sous l’angle de diverses approches : sociologie des médias et du journalisme, analyse interculturelle par exemple. Or l’analyse stratégique que mobilise la sociologie de l’action organisée, développée en France par Crozier et Friedberg, a été peu utilisée sur des objets culturels. Elle permet de penser les liens entre les partenaires d’ARTE en termes de relations de pouvoir qui se jouent autour des différents enjeux qui sont objets de conflit.Die Beziehungen zwischen den deutschen und französischen Partnern des europäischen Kulturfernsehsenders ARTE sind oft konfliktgeladen. Dieses Phänomen wurde in der Fachliteratur mit unterschiedlichen theoretischen Ansätzen (z.B. Mediensoziologie, Soziologie des Journalismus, interkulturelle Theorie analysiert. Der in Frankreich von Crozier et Friedberg entwickelte strategische Ansatz der Soziologie der organisierten Aktion wurde nur selten auf kulturelle Forschungsobjekte angewandt. Dieser Beitrag analysiert die Beziehungen zwischen den ARTE-Partnern als Machtbeziehungen, die sich auf unterschiedlichen Ebenen und in unterschiedlichen Streitgegenständen äußern.

  8. Modeling an integrative physical examination program for the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Goodrich, Scott G

    2006-10-01

    Current policies governing the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs physical examination programs are out of step with current evidence-based medical practice. Replacing periodic and other routine physical examination types with annual preventive health assessments would afford our service members additional health benefit at reduced cost. Additionally, the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs repeat the physical examination process at separation and have been unable to reconcile their respective disability evaluation systems to reduce duplication and waste. A clear, coherent, and coordinated strategy to improve the relevance and utility of our physical examination programs is long overdue. This article discusses existing physical examination programs and proposes a model for a new integrative physical examination program based on need, science, and common sense.

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: The present study aimed to describe exposure and attitudes of French medical residents towards pharmaceutical industry. The study was performed shortly after the Mediator affair which revealed several serious conflicts of interest inside the French health system. METHODS AND FINDINGS: A cross-sectional study was implemented among residents from 6 French medical faculties. Independent education in pharmacology, attitudes towards the practices of pharmaceutical sales representatives, opinions concerning the pharmaceutical industry, quality of information provided by the pharmaceutical industry, and opinions about pharmaceutical company sponsorship were investigated through a web-based questionnaire. We also assessed potential changes in resident attitudes following the Mediator affair. The mean value of exposure to drug companies was 1.9 times per month. Global opinions towards drug company information were negative for 42.7% of the residents and positive for only 8.2%. Surprisingly, 81.6% of residents claimed that they had not changed their practices regarding drug information since the Mediator affair. Multivariate analyses found that residents in anesthesiology were less likely to be exposed than others (OR = 0.17 CI95% [0.05-0.61], exposure was significantly higher at the beginning of residence (p<0.001 and residents who had a more positive opinion were more frequently exposed to drug companies (OR = 2.12 CI95% [1.07-4.22]. CONCLUSIONS: Resident exposure to drug companies is around 1 contact every 2 weeks. Global opinion towards drug information provided by pharmaceutical companies was negative for around 1 out of 2 residents. In contrast, residents tend to consider the influences of the Mediator affair on their practice as relatively low. This survey enabled us to identify profiles of residents who are obviously less exposed to pharmaceutical industry. Current regulatory provisions are not sufficient, indicating that

Dans cette période d’inquiétude, d’effervescence culturelle, on insiste surtout sur le rôle d’Isabel de la Cruz et de ses adeptes laïcs et franciscains, juifs convertis pour la plupart, dans la naissance et le développement du mouvement illuministe. L’apparition de ce nouveau courant provoque le début d’une terrible répression inquisitoriale contre l’hérésie, qui va dépasser la simple poursuite des alumbrados pour éradiquer tout ce qui peut se rattacher à l’érasmisme et au luthéranisme. Les efforts conjugués des inquisiteurs et des théologiens vont avoir des répercussions sociales importantes et compromettre toute possibilité féminine de recherche spirituelle indépendante.This article explores the role played by several exceptional women in Catholic spirituality in Castile, from the end of the XVth century to the 1530s. In a period of intense religious anxiety and cultural upheaval, Isabel de la Cruz and her lay and Fanciscan followers (most of them converted Jews played a major role in the birth and development of the Illuminist movement, which kindled a ferocious repression orchestrated by the Inquisition againt the heretics. In order to eradicate everything that smacked of Erastianism and Lutheranism, it went far beyond measures against the Illuminists (alumbrados alone. The joint efforts of members of the Inquisition and of theologians had major social consequences that thwarted women’s quest for an independent spirituality.

    2012-12-01

    This study examined the relationship between conscientiousness and mortality over 18 years and whether smoking behavior mediated this relationship. We utilized data from the Veterans Affairs Normative Aging Study on 1349 men who completed the Goldberg (1992) adjectival markers of the Big Five. Over the 18-year follow-up, 547 (41%) participants died. Through proportional hazards modeling in a structural equation modeling framework, we found that higher levels of conscientiousness significantly predicted longer life, and that this effect was mediated by current smoking status at baseline. Methodologically, we also demonstrate the effectiveness of using a structural equation modeling framework to evaluate mediation when using a censored outcome such as mortality.

    We studied 1,292 Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans who participated in a clinical trial of expressive writing to estimate the prevalence of perceived reintegration difficulty and compare Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare users to nonusers in terms of demographic and clinical characteristics. About half of participants perceived reintegration difficulty. VA users and nonusers differed in age and military background. Levels of mental and physical problems were higher in VA users. In multivariate analysis, military service variables and probable traumatic brain injury independently predicted VA use. Findings demonstrate the importance of research comparing VA users to nonusers to understand veteran healthcare needs.

    Despite steadfast denials by Ernest Jones, Peter Gay and Paul Roazen (among others), a recent discovery by Franz Maciejewski renders it reasonably certain that Freud had an affair with his sister-in-law, Minna Bernays. While this discovery vindicates certain claims made by the controversial Freud scholar, Peter Swales, other claims of his vis-a-vis Freud's personality and ideas are open to doubt. Meanwhile, the reception of Swales's ideas, and indeed the whole controversy about Freud's love life, provide ample confirmation of many of Erich Fromm's prescient theses about Freud's personality and the politics and historiography of psychoanalysis.

Through the analysis of the public opinion in France during the XVIII century, we will demonstrate the ambivalence of Voltaire’s thoughts in relation to this concept: one one side reign of the irrationality, when linked to the local reality, on the other, source of truth when enlightened and universal.

  9. Teen Childbearing and Economics: A Short History of a 25-Year Research Love Affair

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Saul D. Hoffman

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Despite its apparent distance from the core topics of economics, economists have been attracted to, and deeply engaged in, research about teen fertility for more than a quarter century. Research has focused on two broad, interrelated issues: the socio-economic consequences of a teen birth and the socio-economic causes of a teen birth. In researching these issues, economists have drawn on and extended basic concepts in economic theory and in applied statistical research. I review those literatures for a non-economist audience and conclude that the research love affair has substantially benefited both parties, although definitive answers to causes and consequences are still elusive.

  10. The colonial identity of wine: the "Leakey Affair" and the Franco-Algerian order of things.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Strachan, John

    2007-01-01

    This article focuses on the 1905 crisis of French and Algerian viticulture that came to be known as the "Leakey Affair." It explains why metropolitan French observers reacted so strongly to Leakey's contract and subsequent advertising of Algerian wine on the British market, first from a socio-economic perspective, and second by reference to the importance of wine in French culture and identity. The final section of the article explains the response of Algeria's colonists to their metropolitan critics. Throughout, wine is used as a prism through which to explore the nature of identity in modern France and the complex colonial relationship in which the wine industry played such a major role. The Leakey Affair revealed the fragility of colonial cultural formations and the importance of wine as a conduit of ideas, and a symbol for fierce wrangling over identity, belonging, and the nature of empire. What was at stake was no less than the intellectual ownership of a mainstay of France's cultural mythology -- wine -- and the relationship between an imperial power and its colonial world.

    The objective of this study was to define the pattern and time course of use of ED treatments in a Veterans Affairs (VA) medical center and to identify clinical or demographic variables that are associated with the use of second- or third-line ED treatments. We identified 702 men treated for ED at the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Affairs between 2007 and 2013. We extracted demographics, Charlson co-morbidity score, pertinent surgical/medication history as well as use of ED treatments from medical records. On multivariate analysis, age over 65 (OR 1.83, 95% CI: 1.31-2.56) and Charlson co-morbidity score of 1 (OR 1.77, 95% CI: 1.13-2.77) and 2+ (OR 2.07, 95% CI: 1.28-3.36) were significantly associated with use of medicated urethral suppositories for erection (MUSE)/intracorporal injections (ICI) compared with PDE5i/erection devices. Across all men who used second- or third-line treatments, median time until receiving MUSE was 0.6 years and median time until receiving ICI/implant was 2 years. We conclude that men who will ultimately use more invasive ED treatments, such as men with more co-morbidities, tend to have a prolonged treatment course. This information may be incorporated into a shared decision-making model for more efficient treatment of ED.

  12. Ethical modernization: research misconduct and research ethics reforms in Korea following the Hwang affair.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kim, Jongyoung; Park, Kibeom

    2013-06-01

    The Hwang affair, a dramatic and far reaching instance of scientific fraud, shocked the world. This collective national failure prompted various organizations in Korea, including universities, regulatory agencies, and research associations, to engage in self-criticism and research ethics reforms. This paper aims, first, to document and review research misconduct perpetrated by Hwang and members of his research team, with particular attention to the agencies that failed to regulate and then supervise Hwang's research. The paper then examines the research ethics reforms introduced in the wake of this international scandal. After reviewing American and European research governance structures and policies, policy makers developed a mixed model mindful of its Korean context. The third part of the paper examines how research ethics reform is proactive (a response to shocking scientific misconduct and ensuing external criticism from the press and society) as well as reactive (identification of and adherence to national or international ethics standards). The last part deals with Korean society's response to the Hwang affair, which had the effect of a moral atomic bomb and has led to broad ethical reform in Korean society. We conceptualize this change as ethical modernization, through which the Korean public corrects the failures of a growth-oriented economic model for social progress, and attempts to create a more trustworthy and ethical society.

  19. "Sex in Bed or Sex in the Head?" - A Transatlantic Love Affair

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Becker, Anja

    2003-01-01

    Full Text Available In early 1947, the French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir traveled across the United States. During her four-month voyage she met and fell in love with the then quite famous American novelist Nelson Algren of Chicago. At the time both were in their late thirties. When she had returned to France, she wrote Algren that she had put aside the project she had begun prior to her departure for America (The Other Sex, 1949 and undertaken to write a book about the New World, for "something [had] happened [...] and it was the beginning of love." The journey, she continued, for this reason had to be preserved. Apparently, the passion she had experienced with Algren (it is said that with him she enjoyed sex for the first time in her life, above all had an impact on her primary occupation in life: her writing.In my paper, I look at how de Beauvoir reflected on her affair with Algren in three different works, i.e. her America Day by Day (1947, her novel Les mandarins (1954, and the third volume of her memoirs (1963. All three books were written at different stages of the relationship, and therefore offer quite diverse perspectives that taken together add up to a more comprehensive picture of the affair.When writing America Day by Day, de Beauvoir was deeply in love, and Algren returned this feeling. Yet, Algren does not appear as a predominant figure in the book he inspired; he is hardly mentioned. For, de Beauvoir thought that once she wrote about someone or something, it was lost to her. She consequently had to find a way to write about him-he preoccupied her mind-without actually writing about him. She succeeded in doing so by writing about his America, i.e. the places he showed her. Whatever she sees fascinates her. In fact, this fascination reflects her admiration of Algren rather than of America.By 1954, the romantic phase of the affair was over; a first rupture had occurred. In the novel, de Beauvoir's alter ego Anne from the beginning sees that the

    Chaplains play important roles in caring for Veterans and Service members with mental health problems. As part of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Department of Defense (DoD) Integrated Mental Health Strategy, we used a sequential approach to examining intersections between chaplaincy and mental health by gathering and building upon: 1) input from key subject matter experts; 2) quantitative data from the VA / DoD Chaplain Survey (N = 2,163; response rate of 75% in VA and 60% in DoD); and 3) qualitative data from site visits to 33 VA and DoD facilities. Findings indicate that chaplains are extensively involved in caring for individuals with mental health problems, yet integration between mental health and chaplaincy is frequently limited due to difficulties between the disciplines in establishing familiarity and trust. We present recommendations for improving integration of services, and we suggest key domains for future research.

    2015-01-01

    The Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Healthcare Administration (VHA) is supported by one of the largest integrated health care information systems in the United States. The VHA's Corporate Data Warehouse (CDW) was developed in 2006 to accommodate the massive amounts of data being generated from more than 20 years of use and to streamline the process of knowledge discovery to application. This article describes the developments in research associated with the VHA's transition into the world of Big Data analytics through CDW utilization. The majority of studies utilizing the CDW also use at least one other data source. The most commonly occurring topics are pharmacy/medications, systems issues, and weight management/obesity. Despite the potential benefit of data mining techniques to improve patient care and services, the CDW and alternative analytical approaches are underutilized by researchers and clinicians.

  2. Science diplomacy: Investigating the perspective of scholars on politics-science collaboration in international affairs.

    2015-12-31

    Science diplomacy is a widely practiced area of international affairs, but academic research is rather sparse. The role of academia within this field of politics-science interaction has hardly been considered. This article analyzes this scholarly perspective: Based on a literature review, a case study of a German science diplomacy program is used to explore objectives, benefits, and constraints of science diplomacy for participating scholars. While political approaches suggest an ideal world where both sides profit from the collaboration, the findings of the case study point to another conclusion which shows that the interaction of scholars and officials in science diplomacy is far more complex. Thus, the contribution is regarded as both a useful starting point for further research and for a critical reflection of academics and politicians in science diplomacy practice to gauge what can be expected from the collaboration and what cannot.

  3. Parliamentary participation in EU affairs in Austria, Finland and Sweden: Newcomers with different approaches

    2002-07-01

    Full Text Available The national parliaments in Austria, Finland, and Sweden faced similar challenges as regards to parliamentary participation in EU affairs when their countries became EU members in 1995. They chose different institutional frameworks, where in Austria the respective legal provisions were comparatively rather strong. However, the Austrian parliament rarely makes use of its extensive formal powers but finds it difficult to select the relevant EU issues to exercise its controlling powers. Finland and Sweden, on the other hand, did not provide for such extensive room of manoeuvre for their parliaments but have been more successful in selecting important EU matters to exercise parliamentary control. Especially the Finnish solution, where the parliament focuses on issues that should have been decided by the parliament if Finland had not been a member of the EU, has proven to be particularly successful.

    2004-01-01

    This article analyzes the application of co-management in establishing and zoning nature reserves, explains two types of participatory models, explains the main content and steps required to implement a co-management program, and suggests future direction of co-management. In China, great progress has been achieved since 1956 when the first nature reserve was established. However, conflicts between nature reserve officials and community members, and differences between conservation and utilization of natural resources suggest that the traditional community affair model is unfit to some degree. A more workable and economically sustainable model is recommended. Co-management appears to be the preferred management model. International conservation organizations have carried out projects in Chinese nature reserves in recent years, and co-management is thought to be an effective approach to resolve conflicts coming from community and to improve nature reserves management.

    Full Text Available At the beginning of his diplomatic career in Constantinople in 1835, David Urquhart was instrumental in promoting the British cause by endorsing its political grand design and mercantile interests in Turkey, Greece, the Caucasian region, Crimea, Serbia and adjacent Balkan principalities. While observing the complexities of the Eastern Question, Urquhart recognized the underlying importance that Serbia had attained in the context of competing imperial interests in the Balkans. His engaged commentaries on the crucial changes in Serbian political discourse elucidated as well his understanding of Serbian history and culture past and present. Urquhart discerned a correspondence between Serbian political affairs and the inherent situa­tion in the region of the Caucasus and Circassia.

    Increasing numbers of women veterans using Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) services has contributed to the need for equitable, high-quality care for women. The VA has evaluated performance measure data by gender since 2006. In 2008, the VA launched a 5-year women's health redesign, and, in 2011, gender disparity improvement was included on leadership performance plans. We examined data from VA Office of Analytics and Business Intelligence quarterly gender reports for trends in gender disparities in gender-neutral performance measures from 2008 to 2013. Through reporting of data by gender, leadership involvement, electronic reminders, and population management dashboards, VA has seen a decreasing trend in gender inequities on most Health Effectiveness Data and Information Set performance measures.

    Wakefield, Bonnie J; Tripp-Reimer, Toni; Rosenbaum, Marcy E; Rosenthal, Gary E

    2007-06-01

    The objective of the study was to examine veterans' perceptions of problems and benefits of outsourcing inpatient care from Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals to private sector hospitals. Primary data were collected from a cross-section of 42 veterans who were VA users and nonusers using focus groups. Focus group discussion examined reasons patients use VA care, differences between VA and civilian care, positive and negative impacts of outsourcing, and special needs of veterans. Analyses revealed five domains related both to use of VA services and perceptions of outsourcing: costs, access, quality of care, contract (i.e., a covenant between veterans and the U.S. government), veteran milieu, and special needs. Participants identified a variety of potential positive and negative impacts. In general, veterans perceived more advantages than disadvantages to outsourcing VA care but still expressed significant concerns related to outsourcing. These issues should be considered in the development of future policy toward outsourcing VA care to the private sector.

    Full Text Available The goal of these analyses was to determine whether there were systematic differences in Emergency Severity Index (ESI scores, which are intended to determine priority of treatment and anticipate resource needs, across categories of race and ethnicity, after accounting for patient-presenting vital signs and examiner characteristics, and whether these differences varied among male and female Veterans Affairs (VA ED patients.We used a large national database of electronic medical records of ED patients from twenty-two U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs ED stations to determine whether ESI assignments differ systematically by race or ethnicity. Multi-level, random effects linear modeling was used to control for demographic characteristics and patient's vital signs (heart rate, respiratory rate, and pain level, as well as age, gender, and experience of triage nurses. The dataset included 129,991 VA patients presenting for emergency care between 2008 and 2012 (91% males; 61% non-Hispanic White, 28% Black, 7% Hispanic, 2% Asian, <1% American Indian/Alaska Native, 1% mixed ethnicity and 774 nurses for a total of 359,642 patient/examiner encounters. Approximately 13% of the variance in ESI scores was due to patient characteristics and 21% was due to the nurse characteristics. After controlling for characteristics of nurses and patients, Black patients were assigned less urgent ESI scores than White patients, and this effect was more prominent for Black males compared with Black females. A similar interaction was found for Hispanic males. It remains unclear how these results may generalize to EDs and patient populations outside of the U.S. VA Health Care system.The findings suggest the possibility that subgroups of VA patients receive different ESI ratings in triage, which may have cascading, downstream consequences for patient treatment quality, satisfaction with care, and trust in the health equity of emergency care.

    Full Text Available The aim of the research was to determine the state of affairs regarding professional ethics of Slovene psychologists, particularly regarding the implementation of ethical principles and psychologists' and students' knowledge of ethics and procedures in the cases of ethical dilemmas and violations. Two dedicated questionnaires were designed by the authors. 800 Slovene psychologists received the questionnaire and 150 of them responded. There were also 56 psychology students involved in the study. The results show some problematic issues such as: record keeping, exceptions of confidentiality, access to personal data, the content of informed consent, incompetence, copying of literature and diagnostic instruments – even not standardised ones, psychology students as subjects in psychological research, and lack of information on ethical aspects of students' practical work. Psychologists and students reported inadequate knowledge of professional ethics and suggested various kinds of ethical education. Institutions mostly enable psychologists to work within the Code of ethics. There are, however, conflicts regarding access to data and professional autonomy. Psychologists report conflicts between law and ethics, incorrect reports in media and lack of control over professional ethics. In the case of ethical violation psychologists do less than they should. They emphasise the problem of incompetence. The frequency and seriousness of certain violation were estimated. Ways of verifying knowledge, stimulating ethical conduct and taking different measures in the case of violations were suggested. The state of affairs in different working environments of psychologists was also described. Results show that psychologist who have worked in the field for a shorter period answer more frequently contrary to the Code of Ethics. Students' knowledge of ethics is mostly very satisfactory. The study emphasises the ethical aspects of psychological practice in Slovenia. It

    The McBride Honors Program in Public Affairs at The Colorado School of Mines (CSM), instituted in 1978, is an award-winning exemplar in the liberal arts which provides a select number of CSM engineering students an opportunity to cross the boundaries of their technical expertise in engineering and applied science, and to gain the understanding and appreciation of the contexts in which engineering and applied science and all human systems reside, and specifically to explore and integrate the social, cultural, ethical and environmental implications of their future professional judgments and their roles as citizens in varied and complex settings. The 27 semester-hour program of seminars, courses, and off-campus activities features small seminars; a cross-disciplinary approach; and opportunities for one-on-one faculty tutorials, instruction and practice in oral and written communication, a Washington, D.C. public policy seminar, a practicum experience (internship or foreign study). Circumstances external to the McBride Program itself, which include the development and growth of the field of Public Affairs nationally and the persistence of legacy courses, have created the need to revitalize and refocus the historically cross-departmental Program. A recent curriculum reform effort has achieved a more thoroughly interdisciplinary learning experience to educate engineers and scientists who, as called for in the National Academy of Engineering's The Engineer of 2020 "will assume leadership positions from which they can serve as positive influences in the making of public policy and in the administration of government and industry". In this presentation we showcase best practices in curriculum reform, exemplified by a seminar in National policy analysis where students and faculty have recently investigated federal science funding decisions in support of natural hazards including earthquakes, tsunamis, wildland fires, and pandemic disease.

    Full Text Available The article is devoted to an actual problem of individual-organization of preventive work with the employees of the internal affairs bodies. The main purpose of the article - is marking the main problems of individual and educational work in the bodies of internal affairs – education of a professionally trained, highly moral and psychologically stable employee. The priority work with the personnel at present is creation of an effective pedagogical system of law enforcement officers‟ education. The author points out that there is a need to establish an effective pedagogical staff of education system oriented on developing moral, professionally significant qualities, aimed at the exemplary performance of official tasks. It is noted that there is an urgent need to take into consideration social and psychological characteristics of police officers as well as such factors as the private life volatility (dynamism, the impact of the changes taking place in society in the process of young people formation during individual prophylactic work. The author points out that only an educated policeman with highly cultured qualities, with knowledge and skills in different areas can qualitatively do the tasks assigned by the state. It is concluded that formation of professional morality of a law enforcement officer – is not only the task of law enforcement heads, but it is also a necessary condition for the personnel to execute state operative and service tasks, to keep the law and discipline. Service responsibility and moral and aesthetic requirement to a police officer should be merged into a single unit.

    Seasonal influenza epidemics have a substantial public health and economic burden in the United States (US). On average, over 200,000 people are hospitalized and an estimated 23,000 people die from respiratory and circulatory complications associated with seasonal influenza virus infections each year. Annual direct medical costs and indirect productivity costs across the US have been found to average respectively at $10.4 billion and $16.3 billion. The objective of this study was to estimate the economic impact of severe influenza-induced illness on the US Veterans Affairs population. The five-year study period included 2010 through 2014. Influenza-attributed outcomes were estimated with a statistical regression model using observed emergency department (ED) visits, hospitalizations, and deaths from the Veterans Health Administration of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) electronic medical records and respiratory viral surveillance data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Data from VA’s Managerial Cost Accounting system were used to estimate the costs of the emergency department and hospital visits. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics were used to estimate the costs of lost productivity; data on age at death, life expectancy and economic valuations for a statistical life year were used to estimate the costs of a premature death. An estimated 10,674 (95% CI 8,661–12,687) VA ED visits, 2,538 (95% CI 2,112–2,964) VA hospitalizations, 5,522 (95% CI 4,834–6,210) all-cause deaths, and 3,793 (95% CI 3,375–4,211) underlying respiratory or circulatory deaths (inside and outside VA) among adult Veterans were attributable to influenza each year from 2010 through 2014. The annual value of lost productivity amounted to $27 (95% CI $24–31) million and the annual costs for ED visits were $6.2 (95% CI $5.1–7.4) million. Ninety-six percent of VA hospitalizations resulted in either death or a discharge to home, with annual costs

    Full Text Available Aim: Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The aim of the present study was to test whether plasma basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF levels predict future cardiovascular disease (CVD occurrence in adults from the Veterans Affairs Diabetes Trial. Methods: Nearly four- hundred veterans, 40 years of age or older, having a mean baseline diabetes duration of 11.4 years were recruited from outpatient clinics at six geographically distributed sites in the Veterans Affairs Diabetes Trial (VADT. Within the VADT, they were randomly assigned to intensive or standard glycemic treatment, with follow-up as much as seven and one-half years. Cardiovascular disease occurrence was examined at baseline in the patient population and during randomized treatment. Plasma bFGF was determined with a sensitive, specific two-site enzyme-linked immunoassay at the baseline study visit in all 399 subjects. Results: One hundred-five first cardiovascular events occurred in these 399 subjects. The best fit model of risk factors associated with the time to first cardiovascular disease occurrence (in the study over a seven and one-half year period had as significant predictors: prior cardiovascular event, (hazard ratio [HR] 3.378; 95% confidence intervals [CI] 3.079- 3.807; P < .0001, baseline plasma bFGF (HR 1.008; 95% CI 1.002-1.014; P =.01, age, (HR 1.027; 95% CI 1.004-1.051; P =.019, baseline plasma triglycerides, (HR 1.001; 95% CI 1.000-1.002; P =.02 and diabetes duration-treatment interaction (P =.03.

A number of Justice and Home Affairs (JHA policy areas have experienced a major degree of development or convergence more than others. Why? This is a most sensitive field of study, which has been until now guarded very much as an area primarily of national sovereignty or where sovereignty issues could be at stake. The existence of frictions and strains can be considered as the main justification for this to happen. The way in which certain frictions between member states have affected the implementation of policy as well as how these may be further exacerbated by the forthcoming enlargement will be equally analyzed. The article is divided into two main parts: the evaluation of the main progress in implementing the Tampere Scoreboard on the eve of enlargement, as well as the analysis of the reasons why some JHA policy areas have not achieved the expected level of development.

    The Joint Center for Information Security Technology (JCIST) at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, under an interagency agreement between the Department of State (DOS) and the Department of Energy (DOE), has been tasked with the security certification testing of the Foreign Affairs Information system (FAIS) Early Operational Capability (EOC) software. The basis for this certification is the FAIS (EOC) Security Requirements Allocation (SRA) document. This document defines the security requirements for the FAIS EOC software. Security certification of the FAIS system is the responsibility of the Office of Information Systems Security, Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS/ST/ISS). The overall FAIS EOC certification will be completed in two general steps. First, a test of a stand-alone FAIS EOC system against the SRA requirements which is currently in progress. Second is a test of all FAIS network system interfaces against the SRA requirements as expanded to adequately address the network security issues. This accumulation of requirements is referred to as the FAIS EOC Network Security Criteria. 5 refs.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Patient race in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA information system was previously recorded based on an administrative or clinical employee's observation. Since 2003, the VA started to collect self-reported race in compliance with a new federal guideline. We investigated the implications of this transition for using race/ethnicity data in multi-year trends in the VA and in other healthcare data systems that make the transition. Methods All unique users of VA healthcare services with self-reported race/ethnicity data in 2004 were compared with their prior observer-recorded race/ethnicity data from 1997 – 2002 (N = 988,277. Results In 2004, only about 39% of all VA healthcare users reported race/ethnicity values other than "unknown" or "declined." Females reported race/ethnicity at a lower rate than males (27% vs. 40%; p Conclusion For overall VA healthcare users, the agreement between observer-recorded and self-reported race/ethnicity was excellent and observer-recorded and self-reported data can be used together for multi-year trends without creating serious bias. However, this study also showed that observation was not a reliable method of race/ethnicity data collection for non-African American minorities and racial disparity might be underestimated if observer-recorded data are used due to systematic patterns of inaccurate race/ethnicity assignments.

    This study examined the effectiveness of Public Law 110-181, "National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2008, Title XVI-Wounded Warriors Matter," as it relates to health care for returning Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OEF/OIF) combat veterans. Specifically, it examined the gap between the time an OEF/OIF combat service member left active service and subsequently obtained health care within the Veteran Affairs (VA) Healthcare System, and which factors influenced or impeded the veteran from obtaining health care sooner. Data were collected from 376 OEF/OIF combat veterans who sought health care at the Nashville or Murfreesboro VA Medical Centers. A questionnaire was designed exclusively for this study. The average time gap for an OEF/OIF combat veteran to transition from Department of Defense to VA health care was 3.83 months (SD 7.17). Twenty-six percent of respondents reported there were factors that impeded them from coming to the VA sooner. Factors included lack of knowledge about VA benefits, transportation/distance, perceptions of losing military career, seeking help as sign of weakness, and VA reputation. The study provided some evidence to support that Department of Defense and VA are meeting mandates for providing seamless transition of health care set forth by "Public Law 110-181, National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2008."

At the same time, the civil affairs department can realize the value basis through the construction of the civil affairs administrative ethical principles, defining the civil affairs administration’ responsibility, perfecting the system of the civil affairs administration and strengthening the professional ethics of the main body of the civil affairs administration.%民政行政价值基础具体有“稳定与秩序”、“人权与济慈”和“公平与正义”等形态。民政行政价值基础为规范民政行政行为提供了思想理论基础与评判价值标准,为创设与调整民政制度提供了价值取向,同时也影响着民政主体德性的生成。与此同时,民政部门可以通过构建民政行政伦理原则、明确民政行政责任、完善民政行政制度、加强民政行政主体的职业伦理建设等途径实现民政行政的价值基础。

  17. L’affaire de Berne. Immaculée conception et apparitions de la Vierge

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available En janvier 1507, les « apparitions de la Vierge » dans le couvent dominicain de Berne commencent à défrayer la chronique. L’affaire des visions de Jean Jetzer se déroule sur fond de querelle immaculiste entre dominicains et franciscains. Les dominicains du couvent de Berne ont eu l’idée de créer des apparitions de la Vierge de toutes pièces au moyen de déguisement et de machineries de théâtre pour faire croire à la conception maculée de Marie contre leurs détracteurs franciscains. Leur chef de file est le prieur du couvent, Johannes Vatter, assisté de trois autres accolytes, le sous-prieur, Franz Ueltschi, le maître en théologie et lecteur Stephan Boltzhurst, l’administrateur Heirich Steinegger. La machination qu’ils orchestrent érige de la sorte en visionnaire patenté un novice à la crédulité éprouvée, Jean Jetzer, victime de leur complot. L’affaire défie la chronique et provoque la rumeur. La ville de Berne où elle se déroule est toute proche de la Bâle du Concile (1431-1449 qui a déclaré l’Immaculée Conception « doctrine pieuse et conforme au culte de l’Église » (session du 17 septembre 1439 comme de la Bâle du Formicarius – somme démonologique de répression de la sorcellerie – composée en 1435-1437 par le prieur des dominicains, Jean Nider, sur la base des conclusions de l'inquisiteur Pierre de Berne. La « fiction » de Berne témoigne des stratégies théologiques à l’égard des révélations et des miracles dans la controverse de l’Immaculée Conception. Si elle relève ici de l’affabulation volontaire, elle montre aussi l’usage qui pouvait être fait du discours visionnaire et de son nécessaire discernement à la toute fin du Moyen Âge. L’ensemble de ce dossier exceptionnel permet dès lors de saisir l’instrumentalisation des révélations qui ont pris une importance nouvelle dans les querelles théologiques de l’Immaculée Conception à la fin du Moyen Âge.

    In the USA, 21% of the estimated 1.1 million people living with human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) are unaware they are HIV-infected. In 2011, Veterans Health Administration (VHA)'s Office of Public Health in conjunction with VHA's Health Care for Homeless Veterans Program funded grants to support rapid HIV testing at homeless outreach events because homeless populations are more likely to obtain emergent rather than preventive care and have a higher HIV seroprevalence as compared to the general population. Because of a Veterans Affairs North Texas Health Care System (VANTHCS)'s laboratory testing requirement, VANTHCS partnered with community agencies to offer rapid HIV testing for the first time at VANTHCS' 2011 Homeless Stand Downs in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Texoma, Texas. Homeless Stand Downs are outreach events that connect Veterans with services. Veterans who declined testing were asked their reasons for declining. Comparisons by Homeless Stand Down site used Pearson χ², substituting Fisher's Exact tests for expected cell sizes Stand Downs, 261 Veterans reported reasons for declining HIV testing, and 133 Veterans were tested, where 92% of the tested Veterans obtained their test results at the events - all tested negative. Veterans' reported reasons for declining HIV testing included previous negative result (n=168), no time to test (n=49), no risk factors (n=36), testing is not a priority (n=11), uninterested in knowing serostatus (n=6), and HIV-infected (n=3). Only "no time to test" differed significantly by Homeless Stand Down site. Nonresponse rate was 54%. Offering rapid HIV testing at Homeless Stand Downs is a promising testing venue since 15% of Veterans attending VANTHCS' Homeless Stand Downs were tested for HIV, and majority obtained their HIV test results at point-of-care while further research is needed to determine how to improve these rates.

    Guideline-concordant cancer care is a priority within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). In 2009, the VA expanded its capacity to treat breast cancer patients within VA medical centers (VAMCs). We sought to determine whether male and female Veterans diagnosed with breast cancer received BRCA testing as recommended by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines on Genetic/Familial High-Risk Assessment in Breast and Ovarian Cancer (v. 1.2010-1.2012). Using the 2011-2012 VA Central Cancer Registry and BRCA test orders from Myriad Genetics, we conducted a retrospective study. The outcome variable was a recommendation for genetic counseling or BRCA testing, determined by chart review. Independent variables expected to predict testing included region, site of care, and patient characteristics. We performed descriptive analysis of all patients and conducted multivariable logistic regression on patients who sought care at VAMCs that offered BRCA testing. Of the 462 Veterans who met NCCN testing criteria, 126 (27 %) received guideline-concordant care, either a referral for counseling or actual testing. No BRCA testing was recommended in 49 (50 %) VAMCs that provide cancer treatment. Surprisingly, patients with second primary breast cancer were less likely to be referred/tested (OR 0.39; CI 0.17, 0.89; p = 0.025). For patients under age 51, a yearly increase in age decreased likelihood of referral or testing (OR 0.85; CI 0.76, 0.94; p BRCA testing for Veterans diagnosed with breast cancer. Our research suggests the need for clinical decision support tools to facilitate delivery of guideline-concordant cancer care and improve Veteran access to BRCA testing.

    We compare health information technology (IT) in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to norms in the private sector, and we estimate the costs and benefits of selected VA health IT systems. The VA spent proportionately more on IT than the private health care sector spent, but it achieved higher levels of IT adoption and quality of care. The potential value of the VA's health IT investments is estimated at $3.09 billion in cumulative benefits net of investment costs. This study serves as a framework to inform efforts to measure and calculate the benefits of federal health IT stimulus programs.

    Campaigns have become popular in public health approaches to suicide prevention; however, limited empirical investigation of their impact on behavior has been conducted. To address this gap, utilization patterns of crisis support services associated with the Department of Veterans Affairs' Veterans Crisis Line (VCL) suicide prevention campaign were examined. Daily call data for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, VCL, and 1-800-SUICIDE were modeled using a novel semi-varying coefficient method. Analyses reveal significant increases in call volume to both targeted and broad resources during the campaign. Findings underscore the need for further research to refine measurement of the effects of these suicide prevention efforts.

    2014-01-01

    Résumé Objectif Comparer les caractéristiques principales des nouveaux anticoagulants oraux (NACO), soit le dabigatran, le rivaroxaban et l’apixaban, et répondre aux questions qui font surface lors de la comparaison de ces agents. Qualité des données Une recherche dans PubMed a été effectuée afin de relever les études cliniques récentes (de janvier 2008 à la semaine 32 de 2013) portant sur l’emploi des NACO pour la prévention des AVC dans les cas de fibrillation auriculaire (FA) et pour le traitement de la thromboembolie veineuse aiguë. Message principal Selon 3 essais d’envergure, tous les NACO sont au moins aussi efficaces que la warfarine dans la prévention des AVC chez les patients atteints d’une FA non valvulaire, et au moins aussi sûrs pour ce qui est du risque de saignement. Des méta-analyses de ces essais ont montré que, comparativement au traitement par la warfarine, les NACO avaient réduit la mortalité totale, la mortalité d’origine cardiovasculaire et les saignements intracrâniens, et était aussi ressortie une tendance vers la réduction des saignements généraux. Du côté pratique, les avantages des NACO par rapport à la warfarine sont : posologie orale fixe uniquotidienne ou biquotidienne sans devoir surveiller la coagulation et peu d’interactions connues ou définies avec d’autres médicaments ou des aliments. Les désavantages potentiels des NACO sont notamment un risque de saignement qui serait accru chez les patients de plus de 75 ans, une hausse des saignements gastro-intestinaux majeurs avec des doses élevées de dabigatran, une hausse des cas de dyspepsie avec le dabigatran, l’absence d’un test de laboratoire de routine visant à mesurer de façon fiable l’effet anticoagulant et l’absence d’antidote pour renverser l’effet anticoagulant. Aucun essai randomisé contrôlé n’a effectué de comparaison directe des NACO, et le choix d’un NACO est influencé par les caractéristiques individuelles des patients, y compris le risque d’AVC ou de thromboembolie veineuse, le risque de saignement et les comorbidités (p. ex. dysfonctionnement rénal). Conclusion Les NACO sont des solutions de rechange importantes dans la prise en charge des patients atteints de FA et de thromboembolie veineuse, surtout chez les patients pour qui la surveillance régulière de la coagulation est problématique. La 2e partie de cet article traite des différentes éventualités pouvant survenir durant le suivi clinique et la prise en charge prolongés des patients prenant des NACO.

    Résumé Objectif Traiter des différentes éventualités pouvant survenir durant le suivi clinique et la prise en charge prolongés des patients prenant de nouveaux anticoagulants oraux (NACO). Qualité des données Aux fins de cette révision narrative (non systématique), nous avons effectué une recherche dans la base de données PubMed afin de relever des études cliniques récentes (soit de janvier 2008 à la semaine 32 de 2013) portant sur l’emploi des NACO pour la prévention des AVC dans les cas de fibrillation auriculaire et le traitement de la thromboembolie veineuse aiguë. Nous avons utilisé cette base de données probantes pour répondre à nos questions prédéfinies ayant trait à l’emploi des NACO en pratique générale. Message principal Le dabigatran et le rivaroxaban doivent être pris avec les repas afin de limiter la dyspepsie et de favoriser l’absorption, respectivement. Aucun NACO n’est accompagné de restrictions alimentaires, à l’exception de la consommation modérée d’alcool, et le rivaroxaban et l’apixaban peuvent être écrasés, au besoin. Les antiacides ne semblent pas perturber l’efficacité des NACO. Comme c’est le cas avec la warfarine, les patients traités aux NACO doivent éviter l’emploi prolongé d’anti-inflammatoires non stéroïdiens et d’antiplaquettaires. Chez les patients devant subir une chirurgie, il faut interrompre la prise de NACO de 2 à 5 jours avant l’intervention, en fonction du risque de saignement, et le traitement par le NACO doit être habituellement repris au moins 24 heures après la chirurgie. Il n’est habituellement pas nécessaire d’effectuer un test préopératoire de coagulation. Chez les patients qui développent un saignement, un saignement mineur ne justifie habituellement pas un test de laboratoire ni l’interruption du traitement par le NACO; dans le cas des saignements majeurs, il faut se concentrer sur l’application de mesures localisées visant à endiguer le saignement et sur les soins infirmiers et il y a aussi lieu de procéder à un test de coagulation. Il n’existe à l’heure actuelle aucun antidote pour renverser les effets des NACO. Ces derniers ne doivent pas être administrés aux patients porteurs d’une valvule cardiaque mécanique ou qui sont atteints d’une maladie valvulaire cardiaque, d’une thrombose veineuse profonde liée au cancer ou d’une thrombophlébite superficielle. Conclusion La prise en charge des scénarios éventuels chez les patients qui prennent des NACO a été proposée, mais plus d’études sur ces questions sont nécessaires, particulièrement sur la prise en charge peropératoire et les saignements.

    Quality measurement is an important issue for the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). In this study, we piloted the use of an informatics tool, the Multithreaded Clinical Vocabulary Server (MCVS), which extracted automatically whether the VA Office of Quality and Performance measures of quality of care were met for the completion of discharge instructions for inpatients with congestive heart failure. We used a single document, the discharge instructions, from one section of the medical records for 152 patients and developed a reference standard using two independent reviewers to assess performance. When evaluated against the reference standard, MCVS achieved a sensitivity of 0.87, a specificity of 0.86, and a positive predictive value of 0.90. The automated process using the discharge instruction document worked effectively. The use of the MCVS tool for concept-based indexing resulted in mostly accurate data capture regarding quality measurement, but improvements are needed to further increase the accuracy of data extraction.

  10. Methods and Foundations for Managing Religious Affairs According to the Law---Taking Legal Management of Sichuan Tibetan Areas as a Perspective

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2016-01-01

    Under the situation that traditional beliefs have remained basically unchanged while the social economy has developed and population mobility has increased, with the trend of an in-creasing diversity in beliefs, and an increasing number of religious followers and temples, the management of religious affairs has become more difficult. In ethnic areas, the speed of moderniza-tion has accelerated, ethnic interactions are fre-quent, and the beneficial conflict or cultural con-flict among various ethnic groups has become nor-mal; the impact of modernity, ways of life, the value and ideals of the temples’ traditional culture and educational model brings new social pressure for the monks who are adapting to modernization, and making a leap in development while safeguard-ing traditional rituals, culture, religious education and development. The number of criminal cases involving monks has increased, which brings a strong negative influence to the religious followers in Tibetan areas. All these factors are directly in-fluencing the stability and harmonious development of the Tibetan areas. As the second-largest Tibetan area, the geo-graphical location of Sichuan’s Tibetan areas is u-nique. In ancient times, the policy of “keeping the Tibetan areas stable means keeping Kham sta-ble at first” had been an important measure for the central government to manage all of the Tibetan ar-eas. From the Qing dynasty to the present times, it still has a practical use, and even has special val-ue in the process of safeguarding the “long-term stability of Sichuan”, especially when the people have but a hazy understanding of the relationship between the freedom of faith and managing reli-gious affairs according to the law in Tibetan areas, and one needs to have a legal response to it. Hence, “keeping Kham stable” needs to depend on the law, and legal means should be taken to safeguard the harmony and stability of the Tibetan areas in Sichuan. Management of the religious

    2010-01-01

    How are we to understand the perplexing and sometimes even counter-intuitive position of Denmark in relation to Justice and Home Affairs (JHA)? In this article, we attempt to go behind the many myths and misunderstandings involved and analyse the consequences of the Danish opt-out from EU...... cooperation in Justice and Home Affairs. Symbolically, the opt-out plays a major role for large parts of the Danish population as a sort of sovereignty guarantee in the face of European integration. While shifting Danish governments may point out the detrimental effects of opt-outs on Denmark's position...... in the EU, they still have to guarantee to the Danish public that they respect the protocols. In Denmark, the opt-outs are seen to constitute a bulwark against European integration; underpinning an image of the state with full political and legal authority over people, territory and money. This gives them...

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available This article deals with the encounters between a traditional Korean rural and island population and western military forces when the British navy occupied Geomundo, an archipelago known to them as Port Hamilton, for 22 months between 1885 and 1887. The paper first outlines the sometimes painful process of East Asian countries being opened up to trade and outside influences in the 19th century, a process sometimes urged upon them by naval weapons in this era of gunboat diplomacy. This provides the setting for the Port Hamilton Affair itself when in preparation for possible war with Russia, a British naval squadron steamed into Port Hamilton and took it without reference to the local people or their national government. After brief reference to the political consequences of this action, the focus is then on what the records from the occupation and earlier investigations by the British, who had long coveted the islands’ strategic harbour, reveal about the life of the islanders. The article considers both their traditional life, from a time rather before western travel accounts were written about the Korean mainland, and how the islanders fared under the British.

  16. Implementation of a brief anxiety assessment and evaluation in a Department of Veterans Affairs geriatric primary care clinic

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available Anxiety disorders are common and debilitating in older individuals, yet anxiety is often not formally assessed in primary care. We conducted a quality improvement project to examine the feasibility of implementing a brief anxiety assessment, the Geriatric Anxiety Inventory (GAI, in a Department of Veterans Affairs geriatric primary care clinic. We compared the GAI with a depression assessment, the 15-item Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS-15. Fifty older Veterans (mean age = 78.5 +/– 7.4 yr completed the GAI and GDS-15. Mean completion time and feedback to patients was brief (6.20 min; n = 10. Good internal consistency (alpha = 0.82 was found for GAI scores. Patients with psychiatric diagnoses obtained significantly higher GAI scores (mean = 4.73 +/– 1.15 compared with patients without psychiatric diagnoses (mean = 1.15 +/– 1.86, t(11.46 = –3.10, p = 0.01. Findings suggest that the GAI is acceptable to patients but may not be suitable for differentiating anxiety symptoms or disorders from depression. Interdisciplinary team members continued to implement the GAI after project completion to screen for and track anxiety symptoms in our geriatric primary care patients. Detecting anxiety with the GAI had the benefit of allowing providers to initiate conversations about available treatments and track symptoms as part of noting treatment progress.

  17. Professional Quality of Life of Veterans Affairs Staff and Providers in a Patient-Centered Care Environment.

    2015-01-01

    Changes to the work environment prompted by the movement toward patient-centered care have the potential to improve occupational stress among health care workers by improving team-based work activities, collaboration, and employee-driven quality improvement. This study was conducted to examine professional quality of life among providers at patient-centered care pilot facilities. Surveys were conducted with 76 Veterans Affairs employees/providers at facilities piloting patient-centered care interventions, to assess demographics, workplace practices and views (team-based environment, employee voice, quality of communication, and turnover intention), and professional quality of life (compassion satisfaction, burnout, and secondary traumatic stress).Professional quality-of-life subscales were not related to employee position type, age, or gender. Employee voice measures were related to lower burnout and higher compassion satisfaction. In addition, employees who were considering leaving their position showed higher burnout and lower compassion satisfaction scores. None of the work practices showed relationships with secondary traumatic stress.

    2006-03-01

    A survey was conducted to assess the capacity and current practices of the infection surveillance and control programs at the Department of Veterans Affairs' 130 nursing home care units (VA NHCUs) covering a total of 15,006 beds in 2003. All 130 VA NHCUs responded to the survey, although not all NHCUs answered every question. The majority of the VA NHCUs provided specialized services that might pose increased risks of infection. For every 8 to 10 VA NHCU beds, there was 1 regular-pressure or negative-pressure infection control room available. Each VA NHCU had an active ongoing infection surveillance and control program managed by highly educated infection control personnel (ICP), of which 96% had a minimum of a bachelor degree. A median of 12 hours per week of these ICP efforts was devoted to the infection surveillance and control activities. The most frequently used surveillance methods were targeted surveillance for specific infections and for specific organisms. Most VA NHCUs conducted surveillance for antibiotic-resistant organisms. However, VA NHCUs did not use a uniform set of definitions for nosocomial infections for their infection surveillance and control purposes. We conclude that VA NHCUs have a considerable infrastructure and capacity for infection surveillance and control. This information can be used to develop a nationwide VA NHCU nosocomial infection surveillance system.

    The primary objective of this study was to describe the development, reliability, and construct validity of scores on the Military to Civilian Questionnaire (M2C-Q), a 16-item self-report measure of postdeployment community reintegration difficulty. We surveyed a national, stratified sample of 1,226 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who used U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical care; 745 completed the M2C-Q and validated mental health screening measures. All analyses were based on weighted estimates. The internal consistency of the M2C-Q was .95 in this sample. Factor analyses indicated a single total score was the best-fitting model. Total scores were associated with measures theoretically related to reintegration difficulties including perception of overall difficulty readjusting back into civilian life (R(2) = .49), probable PTSD (d = 1.07), probable problem drug or alcohol use (d = 0.34), and overall mental health (r = -.83). Subgroup analyses revealed a similar pattern of findings in those who screened negative for PTSD. Nonwhite and unemployed veterans reported greater community reintegration difficulty (d = 0.20 and 0.45, respectively). Findings offer preliminary support for the reliability and construct validity of M2C-Q scores.

    Full Text Available Veteran activity levels may decrease between Active Duty and postdeployment. We examined attitudes and changes in self-reported activities between the two in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom (OIF/OEF veterans using Department of Veterans Affairs (VA services. We conducted an online cross-sectional survey (June-August 2008 of postdeployment OIF/OEF veterans registered with the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System, Ann Arbor, Michigan. Descriptive statistics summarized demographic data and attitudes, while regression analyses compared physical activities during Active Duty with physical activities postdeployment. Participants (n = 319, 15.6% response rate reported that they believe staying physically fit is important, they worry about gaining weight, and they believe exercise will keep them healthy (77%, 72%, and 90% agree or strongly agree, respectively. Running (30.0%, Exercise with Gym Equipment (21.5%, Occupational Activities (14.9%, and Walking (13.0% were the most frequently reported Active Duty physical activities. The most frequently reported postdeployment physical activities included Walking (21.1%, Running (18.5%, and Exercise with Gym Equipment (17.9%. Health problems (39% and chronic pain (52% were common barriers to physical activity. Postdeployment OIF/OEF veterans using the VA believe physical activity is beneficial, yet many report health problems and/or chronic pain that makes exercise difficult. Physical activity promotes health, and strategies are needed to facilitate physical activity in this population.

Patients with late-stage disease (stage 3/4 have five-year survival rates of 2%–15%. Care quality may be measured as time to receiving recommended care and, ultimately, survival. This study examined the association between race and receipt of timely non-small cell lung cancer care and survival among Veterans Affairs health care system patients. Methods: Data were from the External Peer Review Program, a nationwide Veterans Affairs quality-monitoring program. We included Caucasian or African American patients with pathologically confirmed late-stage non-small cell lung cancer in 2006 and 2007. We examined three quality measures: time from diagnosis to (1 treatment initiation, (2 palliative care or hospice referral, and (3 death. Unadjusted analyses used log-rank and Wilcoxon tests. Adjusted analyses used Cox proportional hazard models. Results: After controlling for patient and disease characteristics using Cox regression, there were no racial differences in time to initiation of treatment (72 days for African American versus 65 days for Caucasian patients, hazard ratio 1.04, P = 0.80 or palliative care or hospice referral (129 days versus 116 days, hazard ratio 1.10, P = 0.34. However, the adjusted model found longer survival for African American patients than for Caucasian patients (133 days versus 117 days, hazard ratio 0

    Objectives Comprehensive health care for older adults is complex, involving multiple comorbidities and functional impairments of varying degrees and numbers. In response to this complexity and associated barriers to care, home-based care models have become prevalent. The home-based primary care (HBPC) model, based at a Michigan Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and the Michigan Waiver Program (MWP) that includes home-based care are 2 of these. Although both models are formatted to address barriers to effective and efficient health care, there are differences in disease prevalence and functional performance between groups. The objective of this study was to explore the differences between the 2 groups, to shed some light on potential trends that could suggest areas for resource allocation by service providers. Design Using a retrospective analysis of data collected using the interRAI-home care, we examined a cross-sectional representation of clients enrolled in HBPC and MWP in 2008. Participants The HBPC sample had 89 participants. The MWP database contained 9324 participants from across the State of Michigan and were weighted to be comparable to the HBPC population in sex and age, and to simulate the HBPC sample size. Results Veterans were more independent in basic activities of daily living performance, but there was no difference in the rate of reported falls between the 2 groups. Veterans had more pain and a higher prevalence of coronary artery disease (z = 7.0; P <.001), Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (z = 3.9; P < .001), and cancer (z = 8.5; P < .001). There was no statistically significant difference between the 2 groups in terms of the prevalence of geriatric syndromes. Scores on subscales of the interRAI-home care indicated a lower risk of serious health decline and adverse outcomes for MWP compared with HBPC clients (1.4 ± 1.1 vs 0.9 ± 0.1; z = 2.5; P = .012). Veterans receiving home-based care through the Veterans Affairs Medical

    Ethnic minority patients receive lower priority triage assignments in Veteran's Affairs (VA) emergency departments (EDs) compared to White patients, but it is currently unknown whether this disparity arises from generalized biases across the triage assessment process or from differences in how objective and/or subjective institution-level or person-level information is incorporated into the triage assessment process, thus contributing to disparate treatment.The VA database of electronic medical records of patients who presented to the VA ED from 2008 to 2012 was used to measure patient ethnicity, self-reported pain intensity (PI) levels, heart rate (HR), respiratory rate (RR), and nurse-provided triage assignment, the Emergency Severity Index (ESI) score. Multilevel, random effects linear modeling was used to control for demographic and clinical characteristics of patients as well as age, gender, and experience of triage nurses.A total of 359,642 patient/provider encounters between 129,991 VA patients and 774 nurses were included in the study. Patients were 61% non-Hispanic White [NHW], 28% African-American, 7% Hispanic, 2% Asian-American, nurses and patients, African-American, Hispanic, and mixed-ethnicity patients reported higher average PI scores but lower HRs and RRs than NHW patients. NHW patients received higher priority ESI ratings with lower PI when compared against African-American patients. NHW patients with low to moderate HRs also received higher priority ESI scoring than African-American, Hispanic, Asian-American, and Mixed-ethnicity patients; however, when HR was high NHWs received lower priority ESI ratings than each of the minority groups (except for African-Americans).This study provides evidence for systemic differences in how patients' vital signs are applied for determining ESI scores for different ethnic groups. Additional prospective research will be needed to determine how this specific person-level mechanism affects healthcare quality and

    Hearing loss is the second most common disability awarded by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to former members of the U.S. uniformed services. Hearing readiness and conservation practices differ among the four largest uniformed military services (Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy). Utilizing a data set consisting of all hearing loss claims submitted to the VA from fiscal years 2003-2013, we examined characteristics of veterans submitting claims within one year of separation from military service. Our results indicate that having a hearing loss disability claim granted was significantly more likely for men, individuals over the age of 26 years at the time of the claim, individuals most recently serving in the U.S. Army, and those with at least one hearing loss diagnosis. Importantly, individuals with at least one test record in the Defense Occupational and Environmental Health Readiness System-Hearing Conservation (DOEHRS-HC) system were significantly less likely to have a hearing loss disability claim granted by the VA. Within the DOEHRS-HC cohort, those with at least one threshold shift or clinical hearing loss diagnosis while on active duty were more than two and three times more likely to have a hearing loss disability claim granted, respectively. These findings indicate that an established history of reduced hearing ability while on active duty was associated with a significantly increased likelihood of an approved hearing loss disability claim relative to VA claims without such a history. Further, our results show a persistent decreased rate of hearing loss disability awards overall. These findings support increased inclusion of personnel in DoD hearing readiness and conservation programs to reduce VA hearing loss disability awards.

    Full Text Available Objectives: To take inventory of the current state of affairs of Market Access Launch Excellence in the life sciences industry. To identify key gaps and challenges for Market Access (MA and discuss how they can be addressed. To generate a baseline for benchmarking MA launch excellence. Methodology: An online survey was conducted with pharmaceutical executives primarily working in MA, marketing, or general management. The survey aimed to evaluate MA excellence prerequisites across the product life cycle (rated by importance and level of implementation and to describe MA activity models in the respective companies. Composite scores were calculated from respondents’ ratings and answers. Results: Implementation levels of MA excellence prerequisites generally lagged behind their perceived importance. Item importance and the respective level of implementation correlated well, which can be interpreted as proof of the validity of the questionnaire. The following areas were shown to be particularly underimplemented: 1 early integration of MA and health economic considerations in research and development decision making, 2 developing true partnerships with payers, including the development of services ‘beyond the pill’, and 3 consideration of human resource and talent management. The concept of importance-adjusted implementation levels as a hybrid parameter was introduced and shown to be a viable tool for benchmarking purposes. More than 70% of respondents indicated that their companies will invest broadly in MA in terms of capital and headcount within the next 3 years. Conclusions: MA (launch excellence needs to be further developed in order to close implementation gaps across the entire product life cycle. As MA is a comparatively young pharmaceutical discipline in a complex and dynamic environment, this effort will require strategic focus and dedication. The Market Access Launch Excellence Inventory benchmarking tool may help guide decision

    Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) studied the role of verification, validation, and testing (VV T) in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) automated data processing (ADP) system development life cycle (SDLC). In this study, ANL reviewed and compared standard VV T practices in the private and government sectors with those in the VA. The methodology included extensive interviews with, and surveys of, users, analysts, and staff in the Systems Development Division (SDD) and Systems Verification and Testing Division (SV TD) of the VA, as well as representatives of private and government organizations, and a review of ADP standards. The study revealed that VA's approach to VV T already incorporates some industry practices -- in particular, the use of an independent organization that relies on the acceptability of test results to validate a software system. Argonne recommends that the role of SV TD be limited to validation and acceptance testing (defined as formal testing conducted independently to determine whether a software system satisfies its acceptance criteria). It also recommends that the role of the SDD be expanded to include verification testing (defined as formal testing or revaluation conducted by the developer to determine whether a software development satisfies design criteria). Integrated systems testing should be performed by Operations in a production-like environment under stressful situations to assess how trouble-free and acceptable the software is to the end user. A separate, independent, quality assurance group should be responsible for ADP auditing and for helping to establish policies for managing software configurations and should report directly to the VA central office. Finally, and of no less importance, an in-house training program and procedures manual should be instituted for the entire SDLC for all involved staff; it should incorporate or reference ADP standards.
