Genetic and health issues emerging from sperm donation—The experiences and views of donors  [PDF]
Ken Daniels, Wendy Kramer
Advances in Reproductive Sciences (ARSci) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/arsci.2013.13003
Abstract: 164 previous sperm donors completed an online survey regarding health and genetic experiences and views. Results highlight that donors desire to act responsibly with recruiting facilities is not always possible. Objective: Obtaining the views and experiences of sperm donors regarding health and genetic matters. Design: Online survey. Setting: Not applicable. Participants: 164 previous sperm donors. Interventions: Not applicable. Main outcome measures: Views and experiences on health and genetic issues. Results: A variety of approaches are adopted by recruiting facilities in regard to selection and post-donation factors. The vast majority of donors said they had not been contacted by the facility they donated at to update their medical information, while almost one quarter of donors indicated that a health or genetic risk factor had occurred. A great majority of donors felt that they had not received any education or counselling on the potential curiosities of donor conceived people. Donors sought to be honest and open with staff but often found there were difficulties in doing so. Conclusions: Overall, donors indicate that they see donating as involving responsibilities to the offspring and families. The study highlights however that their ability to act responsibly is limited by some of the interactions or lack of them with the facilities where they donated. Implications for recruiting facilities need to be considered.
Avalia??o de genótipos de batata para resistência ao vírus Y

Abstract: potato virus y (pvy) is considered one of the main causes of potato degeneration in brazil. to determine the field resistance of potato genotypes to pvy, in rio grande do sul, brazil, fifteen clones and cultivars were tested during two consecutive spring planting seasons. pvy detection was done by serological tests (das-elisa). cultivars and lines performed as follows: cristal and 2cri-1149-1-79, resistant; astrid, baraka, baronesa, catucha, macaca, monte bonito, santo amor, trapeira and 2ac-917-7-80, intermediate resistance; bintje, cerrito alegre and monalisa, susceptible; and achat, extremely susceptible.
Exclusion from school: A study of practice in England
Daniels, Harry;
Sinéctica , 2011,
Abstract: this article draws on data gathered in a 2 year uk government funded follow-up study of secondary school children who were permanently excluded from school and who did not return to mainstream settings. it reflects on recent debates concerning different forms of social exclusion and considers what forms of service provision might prevent the multiple and overlapping forms of disadvantage that characterise 'deep exclusion'. this reflection is set in the context of recent policy moves in england which seek to promote practices of 'joined up' or interagency working. it is argued that more attention should be focussed on the organisational climate in which professionals in children's services operate. this, it is argued may make it possible to form meaningful relations and patterns of communication that join the services around the young people rather than be constrained by narrow targets that up until now have regulated professional action in the separate agencies that are now, supposedly unified, in children's services.
Physiotherapeutic management strategies for the treatment of cystic fibrosis in adults

Abstract: iotherapeutic management strategies for the treatment of cystic fibrosis in adults Review (6706) Total Article Views Authors: Tracey Daniels Published Date November 2010 Volume 2010:3 Pages 201 - 212 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JMDH.S8878 Tracey Daniels York Hospitals NHS Trust Cystic Fibrosis Unit, York Teaching Hospitals Foundation NHS Trust, York, UK Abstract: Physiotherapy has long been considered a cornerstone of condition management for people with cystic fibrosis (CF). The presentation of CF has changed over time with an increased life expectancy and increased expectations of people with CF to have a complete lifestyle. In turn, the scope of strategies used in physiotherapy for CF have also changed dramatically over the years, moving away from routine postural drainage and manual techniques toward an individualized regimen including the choice of many different forms of airway clearance, such as both independent and assisted, exercise, treatments to promote continence and good posture, inhalation therapy, oxygen, and noninvasive ventilation. This article describes the techniques and overall strategies used by physiotherapists in helping people with CF to manage the symptoms and progression of their condition.

Home Literacy Environment of African American Head Start Children
Janese Daniels
Journal of Education and Learning , 2012,
Abstract: Researchers have documented culturally specific family literacy practices in which low-income families engage, which are often a function of the context in which the family is currently embedded. These practices are well documented in ethnographic literature. Although this evidence exists, its utility is limited due to small sample sizes and lack of quantitative documentation on their contribution to children’s language and literacy development. This study attempted to quantify those culturally specific family literacy practices. 51 low-income African-American mother-child dyads participated. The contribution of multiple literacy practices was examined in relation to child language and literacy outcomes. Most low-income African-American families engaged in multiple literacy practices. Recommended areas for future research directions are discussed.
Analysing institutional effects in Activity Theory: First steps in the development of a language of description
Harry Daniels
Outlines : Critical Practice Studies , 2006,
Abstract: This paper explores the benefits that might arise from an appropriate fusion of the version of Activity Theory being developed by Yrjo Engestrom and the sociology of the late Basil Bernstein. It explores the common roots of the two traditions and on the basis of empirical work carried out in British special schools formulates an approach to the development of a language of description which would extend the analytical power of Activity Theory.
Genetic variation in the Critically Endangered velvet worm species Opisthopatus roseus (Onychophora: Peripatopsidae)
Savel Daniels
African Zoology , 2012,
Abstract: In the present study the genetic variation of the Critically Endangered velvet worm species, Opisthopatus roseus is examined. This species is endemic to the Ngele mistbelt forest in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. In recent years the forest has been severely impacted by anthropogenic activities such as logging of indigenous trees, construction of a national highway, commercial timer plantations and introduction of alien plant species resulting in habitat fragmentation and potential range contraction for the species. A total of 35 specimens were collected from five sample sites (logs) in the Ngele forest and sequenced for a partial fragment of the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) locus. In addition, the sex ratio at each sample sites was determined. A highly skewed sex ratio was detected within sites and only three males were present among the 35 O. roseus specimens. The results reveal the presence of 11 haplotypes and moderate genetic differentiation between the five sampled sites. In addition, it is evident that samples from the same log represented a mixture of haplotypes and is not comprised of a single maternal haplotype. The results further suggest that gene flow between specimens occurs in the interior of the forest. Conservation implications of the present study are briefly discussed.
Aspects of the Asian American Experience – Rights Denied and Attained
Roger Daniels
American Studies Journal , 2008,
Abstract: This essay describes and analyzes the various statutory and constitutional provisions which denied specific rights to Asian immigrants and their descendants and relates the various processes by which these rights were granted or restored from the earliest days of the American republic to the penultimate decade of the 20th century.
