From Warfare to Welfare. Postwar Homelessness, Dislocation, and the Birth of the Welfare State in Europe: The Case of Berlin 1945–1949
Clara M. Oberle
Hygiea Internationalis : an Interdisciplinary Journal for the History of Public Health , 2010,
Abstract: This article examines the origins of what for years has been characterized as a European welfare consensus. It asks whether, indeed, there was a convergence of ideas, and if so, what led to it. Based on public health records from governmental, municipal, and international agencies in immediate postwar Europe, but also on sources reflecting public opinion, Allied military government discourses and policies, urban planners, medical professionals, and others, it argues that indeed there was a period in European history which generated something of a postwar convergence of ideas regarding public health and welfare. The postwar period witnessed a remarkable consensus about the importance of public planning, spending, and state involvement in the health and welfare sector. By examining the case of Berlin as one immediate postwar city and situating it in the larger European context of the time, one can point to common motivations and even actors involved. The root of this consensus was not any optimistic humanitarian ideology, nor even only a concern about public health or the spread of epidemics, though the latter was prominent. Equally important, it grew out of a shared setting marked by physical destruction and political instability. As a result, concerns about governability, social order, and political legitimacy came to the forefront, even of health and housing debates. In the case of Berlin, the public health debate was driven furthermore by a fear of the return of National Socialism.
Functional capacity and health: guidelines and nursing care of the elderly Capacidad funcional y salud: orientaciones para cuidar al adulto mayor1
Avances en Enfermería , 2008,
Abstract: Objective: to assess health and functional capacity of older people with a functional dependence, for self care, as the elements to guide nursing care and family care at home. Methodology: transversal descriptive study in 40 people of 65 years of age and older with a functional dependence, looked after by relatives in Envigado Colombia; convenience sampling. Assessment of the functional capacity using the Katz index and Lawton and Brody's scale, adjusted as per the Neurosciences Group, University of Antioquia. Findings: population between 67 and 98 years old, average age 84,08; 82,5% women. Major organ systems most affected: cardiovascular, osteomuscular and neurological; between 47,5% and 27,5% of the older people had them compromised. Two different behaviors were identified: men and older people, with greater degrees of dependence for basic and instrumental activities; no statistical association was determined due to the small size of the sample. Basic activities were affected as follows: between 67,5% and 55% of the older people needed help; and instrumental activities were compromised: between 95% and 75% of the older people are totally dependent when executing them. Conclusions: Nursing should consider assessment of the functional capacity formulated to the health and integral situation of the older people, in order to guide their care and to support family caregivers. Besides, this will prevent unnecessary care dependences which would be against older people's aspirations as an autonomous and independent individual. It is job of the nursing professional to train family caregivers on assessment of the functional capacity. Objetivo: valorar la salud y la capacidad funcional de ancianos con dependencia funcional para el autocuidado, como elementos para orientar el cuidado de enfermería y el cuidado familiar en casa. Metodología: estudio descriptivo transversal en 40 personas de 65 y más a os con dependencia funcional, cuidados por familiar, en Envigado Colombia; muestreo por conveniencia. Valoración de la capacidad funcional con el índice de Katz y la escala de Lawton y Brody, ajustados según grupo de Neurociencias, Universidad de Antioquia. Hallazgos: población entre 67 y 98 a os, edad promedio 84,08 a os; 82,5% mujeres. Sistemas orgánicos más afectados: cardiovascular, osteomuscular y neurológico; entre 47,5% y 27,5% de los ancianos los tenían comprometidos. Se identificaron dos comportamientos: los hombres, y las personas de edad más avanzada, con mayores grados de dependencia en las actividades básicas e instrumentales; no se determinó asociación

Beyond the Genome: genomics research ten years after the human genome sequence
Amanda M Casto, Clara Amid
Genome Biology , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/gb-2010-11-11-309
Abstract: Ten years ago, the first draft sequence of the human genome was released, ushering in the post-genomic era. Since then, the costs of sequencing have plummeted and many new sequencing technologies have been introduced. These conditions have allowed researchers to investigate a wide variety of genomes that may be important in human health and disease, including those of cancer cells and of the organisms that live on our skin and in our gut. Others have taken the opportunity to revisit lingering questions about the human genome itself, including those related to gene number, the importance of non-protein coding genes, and the identification of functional and selected variants. Investigators from both academia and industry interested in these questions and others gathered at the 'Beyond the Genome' conference in Boston recently to discuss the current state and future trajectory of genomics research. The meeting was organized by BioMed Central and Genome Biology to mark 10 years in science publishing.In their keynote addresses, Steven Salzberg (University of Maryland, College Park, USA) reviewed the history of publications estimating the human gene count, while George Church (Harvard Medical School, Cambridge, USA) discussed how the rapidly shrinking costs of sequencing have facilitated the realization of the Personal Genome Project (PGP) http://www.personalgenomes.org webcite, an effort to obtain and interpret genome information by collecting medical information and full genome sequences for 100,000 individuals. This will include studies of interactions between genes and environmental factors such as microbes and immune responses to allergens, viruses and toxins (Genome+Environment = Trait; GET). Currently all publicly available genomes from the PGP are integrated into GET-evidence http://evidence.personalgenomes.org webcite.The identification of genes with driver mutations critical in oncogenesis has been a central aim of cancer research, as these genes may represent n
?La casa dividida?: Dinámica de los procesos de construcción de identidades nacionales en Estados Unidos
Nú?ez Regueiro,M. Clara;
Andes , 2008,
Abstract: this article rejects the notion of national identity as a fixed concept. instead, it assumes all collective identities as palimpsestic processes. in the nineteenth-century united states, population control, commercial, and nation-planning projects constituted important stimuli for the formation of these identities. alongside the design of the nation's legislation, economy, power distribution, and place in the world market, the creation of a national identity became paramount. territorial expansion, urbanization, immigration, indian removal, civil wars, slave emancipation, and subversion to patriarchy, fluidly intertwined thus creating and constantly reshaping, national, regional, gender, and ethnic identities. as a result of these exchanges, different groups built national experiences and memories in diverse ways. sometimes communities were stripped of any national feeling and adopted a new nation with relative agility. others reinforced ties that allowed them to maintain their group identity more or less intact to this day despite their physical removal, the dispersion of the group, or the incorporation of a new national identity. in all cases, these processes were -and remain - negotiated and constantly re-written.

Abstract: Este trabajo se aleja de la noción de identidad nacional como un concepto fijo, asumiendo a todas las identidades colectivas como procesos palimpsésticos. En los EE.UU. del siglo diecinueve, los proyectos comerciales, de control poblacional, y de planificación nacional, constituyeron estímulos importantes para la formación de estas identidades. Durante el dise o de la legislación, economía, distribución del poder, y lugar en el mercado mundial, la creación de una identidad nacional pasó a ser fundamental para los dise adores del estado. Las fuerzas de expansión territorial, urbanización, inmigración, remoción Indígena, guerras civiles, emancipación de los esclavos, y subversión al patriarcado se entrelazaron fluidamente para crear y modificar continuamente, identidades nacionales, regionales, de género y étnicas. Como resultado de estos intercambios, distintos grupos construyeron memorias y experiencias nacionales de maneras diversas. A veces, las comunidades se despojaron de un sentimiento nacional y adoptaron otro con relativa agilidad. Otras, reforzaron los lazos que les permitieron mantener su identidad grupal de manera más o menos estable hasta el día de hoy a pesar del traslado físico, la dispersión del grupo, y la incorporación de una identidad nacional adicional. En todos los casos, estos procesos fueron -y continúan siendo - negociados y reescritos.
