User Experience of ColdZyme Mouth Spray against Common Cold in Competitive Athletes  [PDF]
Ulf Blom, Ida Nelson
Open Journal of Respiratory Diseases (OJRD) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojrd.2018.82002
ColdZyme Mouth Spray (ColdZyme) is intended to reduce the probability of catching a cold and/or can help shorten the duration of a cold, if used at an early stage of the infection, by forming a barrier on the pharyngeal mucous membrane. The user experience of ColdZyme on naturally occurring common cold infections was evaluated in competitive athletes training professionally or on an amateur level. Thirteen athletes completed weekly electronic surveys on occurrence of common colds, cold severity and user experience over the course of 3 months. The 13 participants reported in total 15 cold incidents with an average duration of 7.4 days. The average cold severity was 31.2 on a visual-analogue scale (VAS) ranging from 0 (mildest possible cold) to 100 (worst possible cold). The overall user satisfaction with ColdZyme was high. 81% of the reported colds were experienced to be milder and/or shorter than usual. None of the participants reported “No effect”. Out of the participants who reported absence of a cold in the previous week, 69% reported a positive answer to the question if ColdZyme had prevented them from catching a cold in the previous week. Conclusion: The present study evaluated prevention and alleviation of naturally occurring common cold in athletes, and demonstrated that ColdZyme may be an easy and practical way for competitive athletes to prevent or reduce infections of the common cold virus and corresponding unwanted absence from training and competition. Due to the lack of a comparator group, a placebo effect cannot be excluded.
Building Capacity for Intercultural Citizenship  [PDF]
Ida Castiglioni, Milton J. Bennett
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2018.63016
Changing national boundaries, migration and mobility, multinational residence, and the cross-border flow of refugees are challenging traditional views of citizenship. The term “intercultural citizenship” is coined to refer to a definition based more on affiliation with a cultural group than on legal ascription to a nation state. The implications of citizenship based on belonging carry some of the same rights and responsibilities as legal citizenship, but in addition they include 1) conscious identification with chosen groups; 2) acceptance of responsibility for sustaining the commonweal in a variety of ways; 3) development of flexible perceptual boundaries that allow for multiple group identifications; and 4) participation in the group coordination of meaning and action that constitutes the maintenance of a living culture. Three major factors in building capacity for intercultural citizenship are explored: 1) capacity for empathy, which involves overcoming the golden rule and its assumption of similarity to embrace the platinum rule and the assumption of difference; 2) capacity for mutual adaptation, which generates virtual third cultures, or forms of communicative intersectionality; and 3) capacity for intercultural ethicality, which demands that judgments be made among viable alternatives revealed by empathic perspective-taking.
"How to have healthy children": Responses to the falling birth rate in Norway, c. 1900-1940
Dynamis , 2008, DOI: 10.4321/S0211-95362008000100007
Abstract: this paper focuses on initiatives to improve infant health, as they developed in norway especially during the interwar period. falling birth rates were felt as a menace to the survival of the nation and specific initiatives were taken to oppose it. but crises engendered by the reduction in fertility strengthened opportunities for introducing policies to help the fewer children born survive and grow up to become healthy citizens. legislation supporting mothers started in 1892 increased in the interwar years including economic features. healthy mother and baby stations and hygienic clinics, aimed at controlling births were developed by voluntary organisations inspired from france and england respectively. a sterilization law (1934) paralleled some german policies.

Fra Partipresse over Omnibuspresse til Segmentpresse
Ida Schultz
Journalistica : Tidskrift f?r Forskning i Journalistik , 2007,
Abstract: Significant historical changes have taken place in the Danish press in the last thirty years: Newspapers have merged, international companies have become owners of Danish newspapers, readers have become target groups, newspaper production has become digital and a handful of free dailies distributed in traffic and directly to households has been introduced. A sociological field perspective is promising in relation to grasping the complexity of the empirical developments and challenging the ‘independency theses’ of Danish media research. The paper develops the thesis that a new media order – the Segment Press – has replaced the Omnibus Press of the late 20th century and the Partisan Press before that.
Contagion and Cultural Perceptions of Accepted Behaviour : Tuberculosis and Venereal Diseases in Scandinavia c.1900–c.1950
Blom, Ida
Hygiea Internationalis : an Interdisciplinary Journal for the History of Public Health , 2007,
Abstract: This article compares legislation in the three Scandinavian countries on tuberculosis and venereal disease during the first half of the twentieth century. It attempts to highlight what was perceived as unacceptable behaviour that might cause disease and consequently legitimise public coercion. According to the letter of the laws all citizens should be treated in the same way. But in the case of tuberculosis unacceptable behaviour exposing an individual to public coercion was found with the poor population: Where venereal disease was concerned extra-marital sex was seen as the risk factor for all citizens. Still, the primary target groups were prostitutes and certain groups of young women. It is suggested that, pending further comparative research, national differences in legal provisions may be explained by the prevalence of the disease, by political and economic circumstances, and in the case of tuberculosis by different perceptions of the contagious nature of the disease.
