Public Health Capacity Building in Times of Austerity: A Case Study From the University of East London
Carmen Aceijas,Nena Foster
Public Health Reviews , 2011,
Abstract: The University of East London (UEL) offers a BSc and MSc of Public Health (PH). The programmes are designed to build the workforce capacity by enabling access to higher education (HE) for future PH practitioners and specialists, and facilitating promotion possibilities within current employment. In 2009/10, the MSc and BSc programs had 143 and 70 students respectively, with 209 students undertaking PH combined degrees at the BSc level. This paper presents methods and outcomes of aligning the programs with the United Kingdom Public Health Skills and Career Framework (UK PHSCF). The realigned MSc programme is a 1.5 year (full-time), six module (180 credits) programme with strong emphasis on epidemiology and research. The BSc programme lasts three years (full-time) and consists of 36 modules (360 credits) providing an introductory overview of the core functions of PH. The programmes’ modules were mapped against the 9 UK PHSCF PH areas. Additional activities were built into the programs to enhance the learning experience and augment transferable skills.After the realignment, the UK Government published in 2010 the White Paper for PH and, in spite of this, announced budget cuts to HE funding along with increased tuition fees. The programme changes are likely to contribute to PH capacity building but in a time when political reform adversely impacts on the development of the PH workforce.

Revista de Indias , 2004,
Abstract: The preparation and provision of fleets was among the main concerns of the Casa de Contratación , which worked very hard at the service of the Carrera de Indias . Cautions were taken for the round trip, which entailed a great and costly effort as regards nautical equipment, food provision, medicines, arms, ammunition, etc. This article is focused on topics of interest related with supplies for transoceanic navigation, such as typology of containers and prices of foodstuff most frequently used in nautical diet. El apresto y provisión de flotas y armadas era una de las principales competencias de la Casa de la Contratación que desplegaba, a un ritmo episódico, una frenética actividad al servicio de la Carrera de Indias. Las previsiones se realizaban para el viaje completo y suponía un tremendo y costoso esfuerzo en equipamiento náutico, provisión de víveres, medicinas, armas, municiones y géneros diversos. En este artículo centramos nuestra atención en algunas cuestiones de interés relacionadas con el abasto de las embarcaciones en su navegación transoceánica, tipología de los contenedores y precios de aquellos productos alimenticios más frecuentemente utilizados en la dieta naútica.
Isoperimetric Inequalities for Minimal Submanifolds in Riemannian Manifolds: A Counterexample in Higher Codimension
Victor Bangert,Nena Roettgen
Mathematics , 2010, DOI: 10.1007/s00526-011-0466-z
Abstract: For compact Riemannian manifolds with convex boundary, B.White proved the following alternative: Either there is an isoperimetric inequality for minimal hypersurfaces or there exists a closed minimal hypersurface, possibly with a small singular set. There is the natural question if a similar result is true for submanifolds of higher codimension. Specifically, B.White asked if the non-existence of an isoperimetric inequality for k-varifolds implies the existence of a nonzero, stationary, integral k-varifold. We present examples showing that this is not true in codimension greater than two. The key step is the construction of a Riemannian metric on the closed four-dimensional ball B with the following properties: (1) B has strictly convex boundary. (2) There exists a complete nonconstant geodesic. (3) There does not exist a closed geodesic in B.

Abstract: The theoretical part of this paper consists of a coherent overview of different approaches and definitions of sustainable development and analyses of the role that higher education institutions (should) play in promoting the sustainable development. Furthermore, relevant research results regarding this concept are presented. The empiricalpart of paper analyses results of a pilot study conducted in 2007 at the University of Rijeka on a sample of 105 students. The objective of this study was to examine the level of awareness and understanding of the concept of sustainable development, as well as to investigate the attitudes and behaviors related to some aspects of thisconcept. The main hypothesis how students are not familiar with the concept of sustainable development and how, consequently, their attitudes and life habits do not give necessary guaranty needed for this approach, has been confirmed. In other words, most of the examinees cannot define sustainable development. The examinees perceive schools as having the lowest responsibility in the promotion of the idea of sustainable development. According to their opinion, the media and civil society institutions have a considerable role while the maximal responsibility lies on the political level.Students regard political willingness as the first step in the promotion of sustainable development, from where it can spread throw society. Without initial activity from the political level the promotion of the idea of sustainable development is not possible.
Coral Assemblages in the Southeastern Arabian Gulf (Qatar and Abu Dhabi, UAE): Various Stages of Acropora Recovery a Decade after Recurrent Elevated Temperature Anomalies  [PDF]
Kristi A. Foster, Greg Foster, Suaad Al-Harthi
Open Journal of Marine Science (OJMS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojms.2013.32A004

This study describes the coral communities near Qatarand Abu Dhabi (UAE) ten years after the recurrent elevated temperature anomalies of 1996, 1998 and 2002 which resulted in the mass mortality of Acropora spp. Data derived from photo transects taken over a four-year period were analyzed to characterize the existing coral communities, to compare these to the pre- and post-disturbance communities in the adjacent waters near Dubai, and to project the time-frames required for the communities to return to pre-disturbance levels. The massive corals, dominated by Porites spp. and faviids, showed no long-terms affects associated with exposures to the three thermal anomalies; whereas acroporids, comprising 0% - 8% of the live coral cover, were in various stages of recovery. Projections indicated that acroporid regeneration will require 15 - 32 years to achieve the ≥40% pre-disturbance area cover. The existing communities are too small in size and number to be self-seeding; thus, they are dependent upon the recruitment of larvae from remote refuges of colonies that survived the thermal anomalies. Efforts to identify these refuges and to establish appropriate multi-national conservation programs shall become critical to the future survival of acroporids throughout the southeasternArabian Gulfas the projected regeneration times exceed the periods between disturbances, which are expected to occur more frequently as a result of global climate change.

Epistemologiese en ontologiese dominante in "Die beiteltjie" van N.P. van Wyk Louw en "Kieselguhrkleim" van George Weideman

Tydskrif vir letterkunde , 2004,
Abstract: Epistemological and ontological dominants in two Afrikaans poems [Afrikaans] In this article the concept of the dominant, as introduced by the Russian Formalists Jurij Tynjanov and Roman Jakobson and elaborated by Brian McHale, is applied in a discussion of two Afrikaans poems by N.P. van Wyk Louw and George Weideman. McHale argues that the difference between modernist and postmodernist texts may be found in the shift of the dominant from problems of knowing to problems of modes of being – from an epistemological dominant to an ontological one. The discussion of the two poems is supplemented by Linda Hutcheon's theory of double-coding and historiographic metafiction. While Louw's poem is shown to be mainly epistemological, Weideman's poem is characterized by double-coding, the presence of both epistemological and ontological aspects, the paradoxical inscribing and contesting of modernist conventions, and the combination of both historiographic and metapoetic elements. As such, it might be regarded as an early example of Afrikaans historiographic metapoetry. Key Words: The dominant (Tynjanov & Jakobson), Afrikaans poetry, N.P. van Wyk Louw, George Weideman, metapoetry. Epistemologiese en ontologiese dominante in "Die beiteltjie" van N.P. van Wyk Louw en "Kieselguhr-kleim" van George Weideman In hierdie artikel word die konsep van die dominant, soos voorgestel deur die Russiese Formaliste Jurij Tynjanov en Roman Jakobson en later uitgebrei deur Brian McHale, benut in 'n bespreking van twee gedigte deur N.P. van Wyk Louw en George Weideman. McHale is van mening dat die verskil tussen modernistiese en postmodernistiese tekste gevind kan word in 'n oorgang van 'n epistemologiese dominant tot 'n ontologiese een - dit wil sê van 'n dominant waarin kennisteoretiese vrae oorheers tot 'n dominant waarin syns- of wesensvrae oorheers. Die bespreking van die twee gedigte word aangevul met Linda Hutcheon se teorie oor dubbelkodering en historiografiese metafiksie. Daar word betoog dat Louw se gedig hoofsaaklik epistemologies van aard is, terwyl Weideman se gedig gekenmerk word deur dubbelkodering, die aanwesigheid van sowel epistemologiese as ontologiese aspekte, die paradoksale hantering en ondermyning van modernistiese konvensies, en die kombinasie van sowel historiografiese as metapo tise elemente. Weideman se "Kieselguhr-kleim" kan dus beskou word as 'n vroe voorbeeld van die historiografiese metapo sie in Afrikaans. Sleutelwoorde: die dominant (Tynjanov & Jakobson), die Afrikaanse po sie, N.P. van Wyk Louw, George Weideman, metapo sie. Tydskrif vir letterkunde Vol.41(1) 2004: 49-64

‘Thought-Images’ and Critical-Lyricisms: The Denkbild and Chris Marker’s Le Tombeau d’Alexandre
David Foster
Image and Narrative : Online Magazine of the Visual Narrative , 2009,
Abstract: (E): This article considers the intersections and interactions of the poetic and essayistic in Chris Marker’s Le Tombeau d’Alexandre. It compares Marker’s film on Alexandre Medvedine to the Denkbild, or “thought-image,” a prose-poetry genre described by Gerhard Richter and practiced by Walter Benjamin. This comparison reveals both the resonances and contradictions that occur between the personal and the critical within Marker’s poetic essay-films. In doing so, this article suggests that one must regard Marker’s work as possessing a critical-lyricism that seeks to negotiate the difficulties of achieving the correct distance and perspective in the personally invested act of criticism. (F): Cet article explore les interactions entre les qualités poétiques et essayistiques dans Le Tombeau d’Alexandre de Chris Marker. Il compare le film de Marker au Denkbild ou imagepensée , un genre poétique décrit par Gerhard Richter et que l'on retrouve chez Walter Benjamin. Cette comparaison révèle les ressemblances et les contradictions entre la vue personnelle ou subjective et la vue critique et objective dans les films d'essai poétiques de Marker. Cet article amène à suggérer qu'il convient de considérer l'oeuvre de Marker comme étant habité par un lyrisme critique qui cherche à atténuer les difficultés dans l'atteinte des bonnes distance et perspective dans l'acte de la critique personnelle.
