Effects of entomopathogenic fungi used as plant inoculants on plant growth and pest control

Canassa, F., 2019, Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen.

Research output: Book/ReportPh.D. thesisResearch

Entomopathogenic fungi (EPF) of the genus Metarhizium and Beauveria are able to endophytically colonize a wide variety of plant species, providing protection against arthropod pests; besides increase the plant development; and act as phytopathogen antagonists. The main objective of the present project was to evaluate the potential of entomopathogenic fungi as plant inoculants against the two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae and the effects on plant growth promotion. Tritrophic effects were also studied, by evaluating prey consumption and feeding behavior of the predatory mite Phytoseiulus persimilis. The evaluated strategy has several potential benefits compared to the sole use of EPF as contact biocontrol agents, as it may control both pests and phytopathogens; be compatible with other natural enemies; provide limited exposure of fungal propagules to adverse environmental conditions, and accelerate seed emergence and plant growth. Considering this, the effects of seed inoculation using two isolates of Metarhizium robertsii and Beauveria bassiana were evaluated at University of Copenhagen, Denmark, on plant development (i.e. biomass and yield) and T. urticae population growth in a model system with bean plants under greenhouse conditions. Effects on feeding performance of P. persimilis were also studied in laboratory conditions. In Brazil, inoculation studies with EPF were conducted at ESALQ/USP with strawberry plants in greenhouse conditions and in the field in four commercial production areas of strawberries in Atibaia-SP and Senador Amaral-MG. In greenhouse studies, the effects of 15 isolates of Metarhizium spp., 5 isolates of B. bassiana and 5 of Cordyceps (= Isaria) fumosorosea were studied, whereas in the commercial area one isolate of Metarhizium and Beauveria was used. Strawberry roots were inoculated by submersion in fungal suspensions, and the population growth of spider mites, while plants development was assessed by measuring root lengths, biomass of roots and leaves, and the strawberry fruit weight. The results showed a significant reduction in T. urticae population and in general better development of plants in both crops. The production of string beans and strawberry fruits were higher in inoculated plants than in non-inoculated plants. There was no difference in predation rate and feeding behavior of the predator mite P. persimilis towards T. urticae from fungal inoculated and uninoculated plants. In the commercial strawberry production areas there were significantly smaller populations of T. urticae and fewer symptoms of plant diseases on plants in the fungal treated beds compared to plants in untreated beds. The results obtained by this project bring a new perspective on the use of Metarhizium and Beauveria as plant protecting agents revealing that the use of entomopathogenic fungi as plant inoculants may be a promising strategy.

How Religion Influences Belonging: The Importance of Church to Eritrean Refugees in Denmark

Jennie Feldrup Kristoffersen

Global Refugee Studies, Kandidat, (Kandidatuddannelse) 4. semester, 2019

Studenteropgave: Speciale (inkl. HD afgangsprojekt)

  • Jennie Feldrup Kristoffersen
4. semester, Global Refugee Studies, Kandidat (Kandidatuddannelse)
Focusing on how Eritrean refugees in Denmark spend their time, I uncovered a trend that the vast majority of them regularly attend church, and the majority are Eritrean Orthodox Christian. This thesis sets out to examine why religion, and specifically Christianity, is important to and prioritized by Eritrean refugees in Denmark, with the guiding sub-research questions: “How does religion influence Eritrean refugees' feeling of belonging?” and “How might coming from a totalitarian dictatorship effect Eritrean refugees’ involvement in church?”

The empirical data of this thesis is based on interviews conducted with Eritrean refugees living in Denmark, as well as participant observation. To explain and understand the trends seen in the fieldwork, the thesis draws on Charles Hirshman’s (2004) theory on belonging to look at Eritrean refugees’ participation in church in Denmark. It is suggested that participation in church in Denmark can be seen as a way to feel a sense of belonging, and as a way for them to continue to participate in the community familiar to them from their home country.

This thesis also draws on Michael Bernhard and Ekrem Karakoç (2007) to look at the effects of coming from a totalitarian dictatorship, which helped explain the extent that Eritreans’ participation in Danish society revolves around the church rather than other social activities. It explained that church is one of the only organized activities that is permitted in Eritrea, and it continues to be the primary activity that they participate in after moving to Denmark.

Through the research carried out for this thesis, some insight was gained into why and how religion might be approached as a key factor in where Eritrean refugees find their belonging and spend their time in Denmark. The thesis demonstrates that Eritrean refugees’ experience of living in a totalitarian dictatorship has led to lasting effects whereby there is a longer adjustment period in which they adapt to the freedom they now have to participate in a wide variety of social organizations and activities without any restriction.

It's not just that college graduates make more money, it's that the gap in earnings between those who complete college and those who don't is widening strongly suggesting that the supply of graduates is not sufficient to meet the existing jobs demand.

dildo The primary allergenic component in cats is actually in their saliva and dander, rather than in fur; you will occasionally see (especially) breeders of various "rexed" (curly haired kitties) or hairless cat breeds claiming their cats are hypoallergenic, but this isn the case. (In fact, it actually arguable that most cats sold as "low allergen" are actually more allergenic than the standard mixed breed housecat.) Even bathing the cat will not make it less allergenic.

dildo The only con, which may be a big deal to some, is that it doesn't shape your body. I think most people buy corsets to get that shapely body that we're all begging to have.

Also, always check for fractures and scratches before each use, and don use the toy if you find anyMost glass toys are made of pyrex glass, which is very strong and won break during use, if that what you worried about. That said, it still glass, and may break if dropped on a hard surface.

Wrong French address to public opinion

 Cache   
The French Foreign Minister has called the accession of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Finland and Belgium to the European Special Financial Mechanism(INSTEX) an indication of "Europe's commitment to a nuclear deal with Iran"! These ridiculous statements indicate that the French still intend to continue their joint game with the United States of America against the Islamic Republic of Iran. This dangerous, albeit unpredictable, game was started and continued by U.S. and French Presidents (Trump and Emmanuel Macron) in year 2017.

UNDP and stakeholders validate Schools Re-thinking Plastic Initiative final report

 Cache   
A Koloale student buying food served in a stainless steel bowl in Week 13.


THE United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), relevant national stakeholders and representatives from five schools in Honiara took part in the final validation workshop within the “Schools Re-thinking Plastic Initiative”, in Honiara on Tuesday 26th November 2019.

Koloale, Florence Young, Emmaus, St Nicholas, and Honiara High School have been part of an experiment which applied behavioural insights methods. For 13 weeks, starting in late July, two schemes were introduced in schools during lunchtimes to reduce single-use plastic:  Deposit Return and Discount Schemes.  The Solomon Islands National University (SINU) students were also actively engaged in collecting data and analysis arising from this test trial. 

Results of this experiment are interesting and promising: for instance, the Deposit Return scheme showed that most students brought back the reusable containers after finishing food to collect a small deposit back from the vendors. The Discount Scheme was most successful amongst kindergarten and primary school students, while among the secondary school students, it was seen as “not cool” to bring a lunch box from home. 

Coping with the increasing use of single plastic products and managing waste is a growing concern for Honiara city. As this trial shows, changing behavior and raising awareness offers new ways for addressing this challenge across the Solomon Islands. 

The findings of this initiative will be captured in a report which will offer useful insights to the Government of Solomon Islands as it implements the national waste management and pollution control strategy. The report also makes a recommendation to phase out single-use plastics in the Solomon Islands starting next year.

The Waste Management Innovation Initiative was supported by UNDP, through funding from the Government of Denmark in partnership with the Government of Solomon Islands (SIG).

Studies Show Suicide Rate for Women Having Abortions is Higher Than Women Giving Birth

 Cache   
Abortions cause a host of mental health problems for women, but a new study claims suicide is not one of those risks. However, prior research demonstrates pretty convincingly that the suicide rate for women having abortions is higher than for women giving birth. As one British news outlet reports: Research has now revealed women who have abortions actually appear more likely to try to kill themselves a year before the abortion than afterwards. University of Maryland experts studied a total of 523,380 women in Denmark to track possible links between abortion and suicide attempts. The study looked at data spanning...

Time and Personhood across Early and Late-Stage Dementia

Gjødsbøl, I. M. & Svendsen, M. N., 2019, In : Medical Anthropology: Cross Cultural Studies in Health and Illness. 38, 1, p. 44-58 15 p.

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

How do time and personhood become related when dementia sets in? This article brings together ethnographies from a memory clinic and a dementia nursing home in Copenhagen, Denmark, pursuing how personhood and time become intertwined across early and late-stage dementia. In the memory clinic, the dementia diagnosis is enacted and experienced simultaneously as an indispensable prophecy of discontinuity of personhood and life for the patients, and as a prognosis that renders the future indeterminate and open to intervention. In the nursing home, institutionalized care marks the fulfillment of the prophecy of decline, yet nursing home staff insist on practicing prognoses for the residents. Across our empirical sites, we enquire what the tension between prophecy and prognosis mean for personhood and the possibilities of the present, arguing that people with dementia are made and unmade through different understandings and enactments of future-oriented temporalities.

Relativistic effects in NMR properties of L[RuCPt] complexes: ZORA versus four-component calculations

Glent-Madsen, I., Bendix, J. & Sauer, S. P. A., 19 Aug 2019.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterResearch

Ruthenium-carbide complexes are of great interest due to the possible bond formation and breakage to the carbide, e.g. as a catalyst in the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis [1,2] or the natural nitrogen fixation at nitrogenase cofactors [3,4]. Hetero-metallic carbide-bridged complexes (Cy3P)2Cl2Ru≡C-PtCl2L, L[RuCPt], with various ligands L have been synthesized and characterized using NMR spectroscopy by Reinholdt and Bendix [5]. The ligands L differ in their electron donating ability and thereby their trans-influence propensity in relation to the {Ru≡C} unit in L[RuCPt].
The experimental NMR studies are supplemented with theoretical studies using two relativistic methods: a four-component fully relativistic approach using the ReSpect program [6] and the Zeroth-order regular approximation (ZORA) [7] two-component method as implemented in the ADF program [8]. NMR chemical shifts of ruthenium, platinum and the carbide in various L[RuCPt] complexes were calculated at the DFT level using the PBE0 exchange-correlation functional. Basis set dependency, relativistic effects and contributions when calculating NMR properties, and a comparison of calculated results with experimental chemical shifts will be presented with focus on the results from two L[RuCPt] complexes.

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Objectives Real-world evidence on effectiveness of switching to biosimila r etanercept is scarce. In Denmark, a nationwide guideline of mandatory switch from 50 mg originator (ETA) to biosimilar (SB4) etanercept was issued for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and axial spondyloarthritis (AxSpA) in 2016. Clinical characteristics and treatment outcomes were studied in ETA-treated patients, who switched to SB4 (switchers) or maintained ETA (non-switchers). Retention rates were compared with that of a historic cohort of ETA-treated patients. Switchers who resumed ETA treatment (back-switchers) were characterised. Methods Observational cohort study based on the DANBIO registry. Treatment retention was explored by Kaplan-Meier plots and Cox regression (crude, adjusted). Results 1621 (79%) of 2061 ETA-treated patients switched to SB4. Disease activity was unchanged 3 months' preswitch/postswitch. Non-switchers often received 25 mg ETA (ETA 25 mg pens/syringes and powder solution were still available). One-year adjusted retention rates were: non-switchers: 77% (95% CI: 72% to 82%)/switchers: 83% (79% to 87%)/historic cohort: 90% (88% to 92%). Patients not in remission had lower retention rates than patients in remission, both in switchers (crude HR 1.7 (1.3 to 2.2)) and non-switchers (2.4 (1.7 to 3.6)). During follow-up, 120 patients (7% of switchers) back-switched to ETA. Back-switchers' clinical characteristics were similar to switchers, and reasons for SB4 withdrawal were mainly subjective. Conclusion Seventy-nine per cent of patients switched from ETA to SB4. After 1 year, adjusted treatment retention rates were lower in switchers versus the historic ETA cohort, but higher than in non-switchers. Withdrawal was more common in patients not in remission. The results suggest that switch outcomes in routine care are affected by patient-related factors and non-specific drug effects.

Effects of community-based pulmonary rehabilitation in 33 municipalities in Denmark: Results from the KOALA project

Godtfredsen, N., Sørensen, T. B., Lavesen, M., Pors, B., Dalsgaard, L. S., Dollerup, J. & Grann, O., 2019, In : International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. 14, p. 93-100

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Background: The positive impact of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) in patients with COPD is well documented. However, little is known regarding the effect of this treatment in community-based settings. Since 2007, all Danish municipalities have been offering PR to patients with moderate to severe COPD, whereas patients with very severe disease or those suffering from many comorbidities were referred to outpatient hospital-based PR. Objective: To analyze the effect of a standardized PR program conducted in a community-based setting on exercise capacity and health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Methods: This is a real-life study including data from patients attending PR at one of the 33 healthcare centers in Denmark during the period 2011–2012. For the purpose of registration and for quality assurance, the KOALA database was established and this web-based registration instrument was offered free of charge to every municipality. Measures included sociodemo-graphic and health-related variables and outcomes were exercise capacity and HRQoL assessed by 6-minute walking distance (6MWD) and the 15D questionnaire, respectively, at the beginning (baseline) and after completion of PR. Relative improvements in 6MWD and 15D were analyzed with multivariable linear models in patients who attended 50% of the sessions. Results: A total of 581 patients completed the PR (72% of those included). We found statistically significant and clinically meaningful differences between baseline and end of rehabilitation values for both main outcomes with a mean change in 6MWD of 45 m, and the magnitude of improvement corresponds to other findings. Furthermore, relative improvements in 6MWD and 15D were correlated, as was the relative change in 15D and baseline Medical Research Council scores. Conclusion: Standardized, multidisciplinary PR conducted in a community-based setting showed good adherence to the program and produced effects on exercise capacity and HRQoL that were clinically meaningful and comparable in size to hospital-based PR.

Labour market attachment after mild traumatic brain injury: nationwide cohort study with 5-year register followup in Denmark

Graff, H. J., Siersma, V. D., Møller, A., Kragstrup, J., Andersen, L. L., Egerod, I. & Rytter, H. M., 2019, In : BMJ Open. 9:e026104, 10 p., e026104.

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Objectives Sickness absence after mild traumatic brain
injury (mTBI) is frequent due to postconcussive symptoms.
We examined labour market attachment following mTBI up
to 5 years postinjury.
Design and setting Nationwide cohort study with register
follow-up.
Participants Patients between 18 and 60 years with
mTBI (International Classification of Diseases, version
10 diagnosis S06.0) were extracted from the Danish
National Patient Register (n=19 732). Controls were
matched on sex, age and municipality (n=18 640).
Patients with spinal cord and column injuries, traumatic
brain injury and concussions 5 years preinjury or as
secondary diagnosis to the concussion in the inclusion
period were excluded.
Primary and secondary outcome measures Data
were extracted from the Danish Register for Evaluation
of Marginalization. Primary outcome was ‘not attending
ordinary work’ defined as receiving any social transfer
payment. Secondary outcomes were health-related
benefits, limited attachment to the labour market,
permanent lack of attachment to the labour market and
death.
Results 5 years after diagnosis, 43% of patients were
not attending ordinary work. The odds increased from
6 months (OR 1.30, 95% CI 1.24 to 1.36) to 5 years (OR
1.54, 95% CI 1.45 to 1.63). The odds of health-related
benefits were 32% (OR 1.32, 95% CI 1.22 to 1.42) at 6
months and 22% (OR 1.22, 95% CI 1.12 to 1.33) at 5
years. Limited attachment to the labour market showed
increased odds at 5 years (OR 1.38, 95% CI 1.27 to 1.51)
and the odds of permanent lack of attachment to the labour market were higher for patients compared with controls (OR 2.59, 95% CI 2.30 to 2.92). Death was more than two times higher at 5 years postinjury (OR 2.62, 95% CI 2.10 to 3.26).
Conclusions 43% of concussed patients were not attending ordinary work 5 years postinjury and received health and social transfer benefits. We conclude that mTBI has a long-term impact on labour market attachment.
Prevention and treatment of persisting postconcussive symptoms should be considered.

The Danish Avant-Garde and World War II: The Helhesten Collective

Greaves, K. L., 20 Mar 2019, New York: Routledge. 208 p. (Research in Art and Politics).

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

This is the first book to focus on Helhesten (The Hell-Horse), an avant-garde artists’ collective active during the Nazi occupation of Denmark and one of the few tangible connections between radical European art groups from the 1920s to the 1960s. The Danes’ deliberately unskilled painterly abstraction, embrace of the tradition of dansk folkelighed (the popular) and its iterations of egalitarianism and consensus reform, called for the political relevance of art and interrogated the ideologies underlying culture itself. The group’s cultural activism presents an alternative trajectory of continuity, which challenges the customary view of World War II as a moment of artistic rupture.

Plastic diagnostics: The remaking of disease and evidence in personalised medicine

Green, S., Carusi, A. & Hoeyer, K., 2019, In : Social Science & Medicine.

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Politically authorized reports on personalized and precision medicine stress an urgent need for finer-grained disease categories and faster taxonomic revision, through integration of genomic and phenotypic data. Developing a data-driven taxonomy is, however, not as simple as it sounds. It is often assumed that an integrated data infrastructure is relatively easy to implement in countries that already have highly centralized and digitalized health care systems. Our analysis of initiatives associated with the Danish National Genome Center, recently launched to bring Denmark to the forefront of personalized medicine, tells a different story. Through a “meta-taxonomy” of taxonomic revisions, we discuss what a genomics-based disease taxonomy entails, epistemically as well as organizationally. Whereas policy reports promote a vision of seamless data integration and standardization, we highlight how the envisioned strategy imposes significant changes on the organization of health care systems. Our analysis shows how persistent tensions in medicine between variation and standardization, and between change and continuity, remain obstacles for the production as well as the evaluation of genomics-based taxonomies of difference. We identify inherent conflicts between the ideal of dynamic revision and existing regulatory functions of disease categories in, for example, the organization and management of health care systems. Moreover, we raise concerns about shifts in the regulatory regime of evidence standards, where clinical care increasingly becomes a vehicle for biomedical research.

Varying but reduced use of postoperative mobilization restrictions after primary total hip arthroplasty in Nordic countries: a questionnaire-based study

Gromov, K., Troelsen, A., Modaddes, M., Rolfson, O., Furnes, O., Hallan, G., Eskelinen, A., Neuvonen, P. & Husted, H., 2019, In : Acta Orthopaedica. 90, 2, p. 143-147 5 p.

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Background and purpose - Mobilization has traditionally been restricted following total hip arthroplasty (THA) in an attempt to reduce the risk of dislocation and muscle detachment. However, recent studies have questioned the effect and rationale underlying such restrictions. We investigated the use of postoperative restrictions and possible differences in mobilization protocols following primary THA in Denmark (DK), Finland (FIN), Norway (NO), and Sweden (SWE). Patients and methods - All hospitals performing primary THA in the participating countries were identified from the latest national THA registry report. A questionnaire containing questions regarding standard surgical procedure, use of restrictions, and postoperative mobilization protocol was distributed to all hospitals through national representatives for each arthroplasty registry. Results - 83% to 94% (n = 167) of the 199 hospitals performing THA in DK, FIN, NO, and SWE returned correctly filled out questionnaires. A posterolateral approach was used by 77% of the hospitals. 92% of the hospitals had a standardized mobilization protocol. 50%, 41%, 19%, and 38% of the hospitals in DK, FIN, NO, and SWE, respectively, did not have any postoperative restrictions. If utilized, restrictions were applied for a median of 6 weeks. Two-thirds of all hospitals have changed their mobilization protocol within the last 5 years-all but 2 to a less restrictive protocol. Interpretation - Use of postoperative restrictions following primary THA differs between the Nordic countries, with 19% to 50% allowing mobilization without any restrictions. There has been a strong tendency towards less restrictive mobilization over the last 5 years.

The Life of a Musician -- a Feast

 Cache   
By Laurie Niles: I've never seen the 1987 Danish movie "Babette's Feast," but I do know a famous quotation from the film:

"An artist is never poor."

violin still life
"Still Life with a Violin" by Jean-Baptiste Oudry.

The movie would make for excellent Thanksgiving viewing, as it centers on a woman, Babette, whose ultimate art is the creation of fine French food. Except the woman - a trained chef who had worked in a famous French restaurant -- can't fully practice her art. She is now a refugee from war, destitute and living in 19th-century Denmark, working as a cook for two sisters who are part of a Lutheran sect that rejects such pleasures of the flesh.

After living in austerity for many years, Babette wins the lottery. But instead of using the money to return to Paris, as everyone expects her to do, she spends all of it preparing a very special dinner for the sisters and their small congregation on the occasion of the founding pastor's 100th birthday. Though the sisters are reluctant to try this potentially sinful food, they agree to do so and everyone loves the dinner in the end. In fact it serves to unite the community. Later, when the sisters discover that Babette actually spent ALL of the money this way, they are dismayed -- now Babette will always be poor!

And that's when she says, "An artist is never poor."

But wait, isn't she still broke?

Well maybe so. But "poor"?

Anyone who counts music -- or any other art form -- as a significant part of his or her life has a certain kind of abiding wealth.

Can you practice your art, can you make your music? Do you have opportunities to appreciate it in others? Do you carry it around as part of you? Does it capture your imagination?

Given a bag of gold, the artist might spend it on violin strings, or paint brushes, or one very fine camera lens. Imagining something and then creating it - this is the ultimate reward to an artist, and little else competes with that.

The artistic mindset allows one to continually see beauty and imagine potential the world. It's a lot like gratitude.

I'm grateful my life centers on music: exploring it, teaching it, discovering it anew. I'm grateful for the little girl who visited my third-grade public school classroom and sparked my initial desire to play the violin. I'm grateful for the times I've played my one small part in a huge orchestra, for that larger-than-life feeling of oneness and deep harmony, created by so many people cooperating to one end. I'm grateful for the remarkable performances I've witnessed. I'm grateful for those times when I'm standing alone in my studio, playing Bach, and suddenly I feel a connection to the past, to my soul. I'm grateful for the moments when I say something that helps spark a new kind of creativity or understanding in a student.

Such rich experiences.

What makes you feel grateful?

Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving (if you are celebrating it!) and a holiday season full of music.

National data with high validity and completeness showed that only 0.04% of Danish children had been registered with diagnosed hypertension.

Acta Paediatr. 2019 Nov 30;:

Authors: Langhoff AF, Børresen ML, Wason MP, Andersson M, Jeppesen DL, Schmidt IM, Cortes D

Abstract
AIM: Hypertension has been reported in up to 4.0% of American children, but no national data exist in Europe. We studied the frequency of registered hypertension in Danish children and evaluated the data.
METHODS: This 2014-2015 study focused on patients under the age of 16 registered with hypertension in the Danish National Patient Register and 10 paediatric departments in central and eastern Denmark. The diagnoses were coded according to the International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision. All the subjects' medical records were reviewed, including any confirmed diagnoses.
RESULTS: There were 553,784 children under 16 in the study regions at 30 April 2014. By May 2015, 222 of those had been registered with hypertension: 200 in the Danish National Patient Register and 191 in the 10 paediatric departments. Their medical records confirmed hypertension in 187 and 185 cases, respectively. The prevalence of registered and confirmed hypertension was 222/553,784 (0.04%). The positive predictive values of hypertension were 187/200 (94%) and 185/191 (97%) and the completeness of diagnosed hypertension were 187/222 (84%) and 185/222 (83%).
CONCLUSION: The registers had high-quality positive predictive values and completeness, but only 0.04% of the Danish children were registered with a verified diagnosis of hypertension.

Growth of children in Greenland exceeds the World Health Organization growth charts.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 11;107(11):1953-1965

Authors: Kløvgaard M, Nielsen NO, Sørensen TL, Bjerregaard P, Olsen B, Júlíusson PB, Roelants M, Christesen HT

Abstract
AIM: Previous studies have found high rates of stunted linear growth in Greenlandic children. We measured growth patterns in Greenland and compared them with international growth charts.
METHODS: The study cohort comprised 279 healthy children aged 6-10 years in 2012. They participated in two pregnancy and birth cohorts in Greenland and longitudinal growth data as birth was extracted from their medical records. Growth reference ranges were estimated with the lambda-mu-sigma (LMS) method and compared with growth charts from Denmark and the World Health Organization (WHO).
RESULTS: The children's mean length, weight and head circumference were significantly larger than the WHO growth charts (p < 0.001). We found that 21-28% of the children aged zero to one years exceeded the WHO growth chart for length by more than two standard deviations. For weight and head circumference, 9-16% of the children aged 0-10 years and 9-11% of the children from zero to two years exceeded the WHO charts by more than two standard deviations. The Danish references were exceeded to a lesser degree.
CONCLUSION: This study showed that the growth of Greenlandic children up to 10 years was no longer stunted. Major determining factors suggested are genetic admixture, maternal overweight, changes in nutrition and improved health.

The Jim Bell System

 Cache   
As I write this article on July 3, 2002, I am already hearing out my window the occasional pops of micro-explosives enthusiasts getting a head start on their annual excuse to play with things that go bang and supposedly celebrate their freedom. Tomorrow, libertarians across the country will use the holiday as an opportunity to grouse to disinterested relatives around the barbecue grill about how little freedom we actually have left, or really ever had. LP lifers often say there is no magic bullet to get the kind of society we want, and it will take decades of hard work in the political trenches, and of course, many many donations to the party, before we ever see progress. Conversely, I propose that a nutty guy named Jim Bell has already designed the magic bullet; it just needs to be forged and we will start seeing dramatic positive change immediately. **The following article is an opinion piece written in 2002 by the libertarian author Robert Vroman. This is the first part of the Jim Bell System debate series and the revisited version written by Vroman can be read here. Vroman is well known for his editorial work writing for anti-state.com. ‘The Jim Bell System’ first published on anti-state.com on July 3, 2002, in response to the assassination politics (AP) debate. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any opinions, content, accuracy or quality within the Op-ed article.** Since this is a fairly controversial topic, I will start with a psychological self-analysis as a disclaimer. My primary long-term goal is to live forever. I’m convinced that the exponential improvements in medical technology will curve upwards to infinity within the next century. This means surviving the relatively primitive period between then and now is the major stumbling block. As an atheist, I am faced with the conclusion that this is the only life I have. Therefore I have an enormous incentive to minimize risks to my health and well being, just as a Christian has incentive not to sin; we both would be gambling our presumed eternal life, an unacceptable wager. One such risk I will choose to decline is taking up arms against the United States government. Thus the powers that be who may read this article can rest assured that I will be exhibiting more or less cowardly behavior for the next 75 years or so, and present no security threat whatsoever. I am simply predicting what will happen and am no more responsible for the outcome than an astronomer who reveals that an asteroid is on course to wipe out DC. Hopefully, the destruction of this particular doomsday rock will be localized around the tyrants. With that said, I present the following dangerous idea. My secondary long-term goal is to live free. By that I mean living in a stable, secure, anarcho-capitalist society. The obvious obstacle to this goal is the existence of the State. The problems I face generally in eradicating this persistent pest are that: The State is actively retarding the progress of science, thus making my immortality timetable more and more dicey. There aren’t a whole lot of capital resources or individuals enlightened enough to be on my side. If I die in the process, either from fighting a revolution or from allowing the state to last too long, stalling out science, it will all be for naught (from my perspective anyway) The challenge then is to devise a plan to remove this obstacle, balancing the considerations of speed, cost, and safety. In a recent article John T. Kennedy made the excellent point, using the example of a porcupine, that in order to avoid being eaten, one need not necessarily be anywhere near as powerful as the predator, only become an overpriced meal. The historical example of Switzerland in WWII comes to mind. Clearly, with a concentrated effort, the Nazi war machine could have decimated the small neutral country. In fact, Hitler boasted early on in the war that he would “be the butcher of the Swiss.” However, the Swiss militia system was able to mobilize a half million trained riflemen within 48 hours of that pronouncement. Once entrenched in foreboding Alpine terrain, they were ordered to defend the border “to the last cartridge.” The Fuhrer decided to pass on that challenge and instead waltzed through Denmark and France, countries with little to no civilian gun culture. For our purposes, the State is the predator, and we are the prey. Kennedy mentioned (with appropriate caveats) that Assassination Politics would be one possible method to grow some quills, and raise our price beyond the power monger’s ability to pay. Briefly, the AP system, as I envision its probable implementation, would operate something like this. You come across, say, “www.jimbellsystem.com” and see a long list of names next to dollar amounts. You are then invited to select a name and then submit a guess as to the exact date this person will expire, in exchange for some standard betting fee, like $1, via some as yet undeveloped digital cash scheme. Your dollar is then added to the total on the master list. You can repeat this process as many times, on as many names as you like, or even submit a new name. Strong cryptography protects your anonymity in all cases. ‘The Jim Bell System’ first published on anti-state.com on July 3, 2002. Then when someone on the list inevitably is reaped, the site operator examines all the winning bets (if any) and divides the prize evenly among them, after taking a small percentage as commission. The prize money is then forwarded to anonymous digital cash accounts that the winning bettors indicated when they submitted their entries. In other words, it’s just a standard betting pool system except with paranoid security, and a rather macabre theme. However, the catch is that once a particular name gets some serious cash associated with it, say $1M+, there will be a strong motivation for an unscrupulous bettor to tip the odds...

Why Emmanuel Macron's attempt to reset relations with Russia will alienate his allies and come unstuck over Nato

 Cache   

Why Emmanuel Macron's attempt to reset relations with Russia will alienate his allies and come unstuck over NatoEmmanuel Macron's bold - some might say hubristic - attempt to redefine the nature of Nato will go down like a lead balloon with most member states.  At a mundane level, it is perfectly true to say that Russia is not Nato's enemy. No Nato country wants to go to war with Russia, and Russia certainly does not want a war with Nato.  And there certainly are good reasons for all Nato members to to worry about other threats like terrorism and the deteriorating situation in the Sahel. But for Central European members who neighbour Russia,  Nato's old raison d'etre is as important now as ever before because - put bluntly - Russia is and remains their main security threat.  For them, being in an alliance that Russia does not want to risk a war with is the whole point.  Those members will be very guarded about any proposals from the French that look like an attempt to water that down. Besides coming across as an arrogant dismissal of the security concerns of several member states, there is something else bothersome  - if not frankly wearisome - about Mr Macron's recent pronouncements.  Royal Marines preparing for a Nato exercise in Denmark Credit: Paul Hall There is a well established tradition of bright young Western politicians thinking they can clear up "misunderstandings" with Russia with a "reset" of the mess made by their predecessors - only to get upset when Vladimir Putin continues to pursue his vision of Russian interests anyway.  Barack Obama tried it. So did David Cameron. Both found that Vladimir Putin simply has a different vision of how the world should be - and what is in his country's interests.  What Mr Macron is about to discover - if his foreign policy advisors have not already explained it to him - is that Russia views Nato as a fundamentally hostile alliance that poses a threat to its own national security and foreign policy interests.  The long term strategic vision in Moscow is for either a new European security space - in other words disbandment of Nato and its replacement with OSCE or something similar as the main forum for settling security questions on the continent - or, failing that, establishment of deterrence and respect for its "sphere of interests" - for example in Ukraine - with whatever means are effective.  So if  Mr Macron wants to clear up "misunderstandings" with Russia, he can either disband Nato entirely or sacrifice what many of its members believe to be their central security and foreign policy interests.  Good luck getting that past your allies.

Portugal, France and Germany in Euro 2020 super group

Germany coach Joachim Loew, Portugal coach Fernando Santos and France coach Didier Deschamps pose with the trophy after being drawn in group E.

BUCHAREST, Saturday - Defending champions Portugal and the last two world champions, France and Germany, were thrown together in what German coach Joachim Loew described as the group of death following a lop-sided and complicated Euro 2020 draw on Saturday.

England were drawn against Croatia in a repeat of last year’s World Cup semi-final while other favourites were given a much easier ride in the 24-team tournament which will be played in 12 different countries across the region.

The clear pick of the six first round pools was Group F, to be played in Munich and Budapest, which pitted France, Portugal and Germany, plus the winners of either playoff A or D. However, the sting was slightly taken away by the format which allows four of the six third-placed teams to qualify for the round of 16, UEFA’s decision to rank the teams according to their result in the qualifiers, combined with Portugal’s performance in their group, meant they ended up among the third seeds while France were one of the second seeds.

“This is a group of death,” said Loew whose side will play all three games at home under competition rules. “The expectations will be quite high. For our young team, this will be huge challenge but also a big motivation.”

England and Croatia, who have met in the Nations League since Croatia’s 2-1 win in Moscow last year, will be joined in Group D by the Czech Republic and the winners of playoff C - either Scotland, Norway, Serbia or Israel.

The Group D winners will face the runners-up from Germany’s group in the round of 16 while the second-placed team will travel to Copenhagen to meet the Group E runners-up - potentially an easier match.

The Group will be played in London - host for the semi-finals and final - and Glasgow.

Other favourites were given a much easier-looking ride.

Italy, who won all 10 qualifying games as they bounced back from failing to make the last World Cup, will face Turkey, Wales and Switzerland in Group A, in Rome and Baku.

“We have a slight advantage by playing at home. Maybe some will think we are favourites but we need to confirm everything on the pitch, as always,” Italy coach Roberto Mancini said.

Euro 2008 and 2012 champions Spain, who will jointly host Group E in Bilbao with Dublin, play Sweden, Poland and playoff winner B - either Bosnia, Slovakia, Ireland or Northern Ireland.

Belgium’s opponents in Group B will be Denmark and Russia -who are both host nations - and Finland, who will be making their first appearance in a European Championship or World Cup. The Netherlands, who like Italy missed out on the last World Cup, were pitted against Ukraine, Austria and playoff winner A or D in Group C, which will be played in Amsterdam and Bucharest.

Under the complex rules, all host nations will play their group games at home, meaning a number of teams had been allocated their groups before the draw

“The rules are clear, they were accepted by everybody,” said UEFA deputy general secretary Giorgio Marchetti. “Portugal are in pot three because they didn’t win their group, and the winner of their group was Ukraine. And Ukraine, thanks to their results, are in pot one, and everybody accepts it because once again we have clear rules.” – Agencies

The ART of Having Children

The ART of Having Children jbanderson Thu, 11/21/2019 - 09:28 Life and Health Family and Relationships Science and Environment Fall 2019 Interview The ART of Having Children Is Assisted Reproductive Technology the Wave of the Future? Dan Cloer

In the face of increasing options for selecting our future children, author and medical doctor Robert Klitzman asks, “What kind of society do we want in terms of our ability to design babies?”

“I’m looking for a sperm donor,” she said.

So begins Robert Klitzman’s new book. If you’re imagining that Klitzman is a provocative new writer of edgy cosmopolitan fiction, guess again. In Designing Babies: How Technology Is Changing the Ways We Create Children (2020), the medical doctor explores the many ways in which babies are created today. These ARTs (assisted reproductive technologies) may seem like fiction, but they’re not. Increasing numbers of hopeful parents are investing in ART procedures.

In vitro fertilization (or IVF, the bringing together of sperm and egg outside the body) is the core ART process. Since Louise Brown’s birth in 1978, IVF has added more than 8 million babies to both traditional and nontraditional families. But many millions more embryos and pregnancies have been unsuccessful. The grief, frustration and financial costs can be overwhelming; even the relationship between potential parents can be ruined by the unfulfilled dream of having an ART child. Meanwhile, leftover embryos are often kept in a frozen limbo awaiting destruction, gestational adoption, or parental retrieval for another round of treatment and possible birth.

So when a friend asked Klitzman, “Do you want to be the father of my child?” he had plenty to think about. “You wouldn’t have to do anything other than donate the sperm,” she assured him. He writes that although the proposition was “tempting,” he worried, “What if I disagreed with her about how to raise our child?” He eventually told her no.

“I have often wondered if I made the right decision. I will never know. But the choice helped me understand the predicaments that countless potential parents confront.”

Robert Klitzman, Designing Babies

“We now face crucial moral, social, cultural, psychological, and existential conundrums about how to employ these technologies,” he remarks; “whether to monitor or control them and, if so, how; and more broadly, where as a species we are or should be heading; and what responsibilities, if any, we have in these realms.”

Echoing the advice of most scientists involved in this brave new world of designing babies, he writes, “We need now to enhance discussion, awareness and understandings of these issues among patients, their families, clinicians in various fields, professional organizations, policymakers, and the public at large.”

Klitzman is a professor of clinical psychiatry and director of the Masters of Bioethics Program at Columbia University. He also cofounded and codirected the Center for Bioethics and is a member of the Research Ethics Advisory Panel of the US Department of Defense and of the New York State Stem Cell Commission. His previous books include, among others, The Ethics Police? (2015) and Am I My Genes? (2012).

Vision contributor Dan Cloer spoke with Klitzman about what he discovered from writing Designing Babies. The conversation began with Chinese biophysics researcher He Jiankui’s reasons for proceeding with germ-line editing of human embryos.

 

DC He Jiankui created a set of guidelines called “Draft Ethical Principles for Therapeutic Assisted Reproductive Technologies” to support his use of CRISPR for editing human embryos last year. How would you evaluate these principles?

RK They sound good, but we need more than nice words. With ethical principles, God is in the details, so to speak. The issue with any ethical principle is how it will be interpreted and applied. And what does one do when different ethical principles conflict? In general, He’s principles are fine, but they are not complete. Most specifically, what is missing for me is that he does not address questions of risk and external review.

It’s not just that there may potentially be benefits to gene editing down the line, but what are the risks for someone today? Ideally, the CRISPR gene-editing tool might be used to intervene when no alternative treatment exists and the patient will otherwise die. In this case, there are good treatments for HIV and methods for avoiding transmission of HIV to a child. Gene editing was not necessary; the risks outweighed the benefits.

The other crucial element in international ethical guidelines is the need for a process of external review. It’s not enough for scientists to say, “I’m going to cure people. I made this invention in my laboratory, and I’m going to give it to everyone and save their lives!” There must be an outside reviewer to say, “Wait a second. What is it? What are the risks? What are you going to tell people about it?”

We know that every scientist has conflicts of interest. They want their discovery, intervention or innovation to work. Unfortunately, there have been many cases where scientists, in their eagerness to show that their idea works, overlook risks and problems. For instance, one of He’s principles was “Organizations developing genetic cures have a deep moral obligation to serve families of every background.” We know now that he had plans to develop an offshore clinic to design babies for wealthy people around the world, who would come to wherever the clinic was located. That certainly shows a conflict of interest. Was he going to provide services for poor people too? Did he feel obliged by that statement to serve everyone?

DCIVF itself is very expensive—maybe $15–20,000 for one treatment cycle. That’s a high bar for many right now, even before we start adding embryo gene sequencing and, at some point, gene editing. And there is no money-back guarantee.

RKThese technologies can help us and they can hurt us. They have the potential to make us better by eliminating some diseases, but also to make us more unequal by enhancing the children of people who can pay for it.

“I suspect that CRISPR will eventually be introduced at fertility clinics in various countries. Someone will come along and offer something—IQ, physical traits, other abilities—and it will cost thousands of dollars.”

Robert Klitzman

For technologies that we are using right now, like Preimplantation Genetics Diagnosis (PGD, used to examine IVF embryos for abnormalities), we already face questions of equity and access. It’s great that couples who may have inherited genes associated with breast cancer can have embryos examined and screened. But the procedure is expensive and often not covered by insurance. So wealthy people can afford to screen their embryos and maybe remove a disease like breast cancer from their family. Up to now, genetic diseases have been equal-opportunity killers. In the future, I think these conditions may increasingly become diseases of the poor. Obviously a lot of social questions arise when the wealthy can remove a mutation from their gene pool while others cannot.

DCYou say that your views concerning infertility changed while writing Designing Babies. “What I saw astonished me,” you write. “These men and women shed light on the myriad, unforeseen facets and ramifications of these new technologies and dramatically altered my views.” How so?

RKI started out in some ways wary of altering the genes of future generations. But I quickly realized that there are times when it might be helpful. PGD can be used to get rid of serious diseases. The key issue is to avoid bad uses and reduce the risks. Rather than saying that designing babies will be either good or bad, the question is when is it good, and when is it bad? It is not monolithic.

DCDo you see any ethical problem in creating IVF embryos that will be tested and rejected or passed on from the clinic to the lab to be used in research? What about surrogate gestation?

RKPersonally, no—but informed consent is important. We have hundreds of thousands of unused embryos in this country. Couples understandably don’t want to throw them out, but sometimes they don’t want to pay for storage either. But what is the moral status of an embryo? This is also an important question in the abortion and stem-cell debates. My opinion is that if a couple is trying to avoid passing on a gene associated with a serious disease, and some embryos have that gene, then it’s okay not to use these embryos. These are unfortunate choices that have to be made.

Similarly, I was quite wary of the idea of buying and selling eggs or sperm, or women renting their wombs [as gestational surrogates]. There are real concerns about exploitation of women and horror stories of children abandoned when the prospective parents changed their minds and no longer wanted the child after the surrogate gave birth. But as I looked into the issue through my interviews and learned about the women who were gestational surrogates, I found that many of them were not, in fact, being exploited. They knew what they were doing: “Hey, I have two or three kids of my own and if I can make $90,000 just sitting around the house, that could help me pay for my kids’ college education.”

DCSo you began to think differently because you were no longer just at your desk mulling it over academically?

RKExactly right. I wrote this book because the public debate is still focused on whether these technologies are “good” or “bad.” What’s missing are the voices of people who are personally involved, invested. Gloria Steinem tells the story of potential exploitation and impoverished women being forced to be surrogates against their will. At least in the US, the data do not support that. Certainly exploitation is bad, and we want to avoid it. But it’s not clear to me that it is happening. Doing research and finding out what the lived experiences are from the people involved really opened my eyes.

This speaks to the fact that many people don’t yet know much about these technologies. It’s true of gene editing but also of other forms of ART: buying and selling eggs and sperm, renting wombs. It affects lots of people but goes largely unexamined because there are taboos against talking about sex and reproduction. Men don’t like to talk about impotence and low sperm count, feeling it means they are not “macho.” Women feel great shame about the fact that their eggs aren’t working or that they’ve had to buy someone else’s eggs, and that they are therefore not genetically related to their child. There’s secrecy and fear. Parents are afraid that their daughter won’t love them as much if she finds out that her mom is not actually her genetic mother. But these secrets have costs. Kids may find these things out later and can become very upset and feel betrayed. Evidence suggests that children should be told from an early age that other people helped bring them into the world, or however a parent might want to communicate that.

I also came to realize how prevalent these issues are. In Denmark, for example, 7 percent of all births occur through some form of ART, and I believe that will soon be the number in the US. This is a big issue that we need to pay more attention to, on both the personal and the policy level. The CDC [Centers for Disease Control] collect some data, but there’s more to do.

DCWe don’t collect and apply data very well, you say. But there are things potential users of these technologies should know—darker things that you learned as well.

RKWe do need data, but some issues stand out even now. We know that over 40 percent of twins born through IVF have medical problems. Yet fertility doctors, using IVF, commonly implant multiple embryos to increase the odds of a successful birth; it’s a selling point for the clinic. If I’m an IVF doctor, I can say, “Look at how many live births I have.” It’s good marketing, but not so good for the baby. I did not know this, and many IVF patients don’t know it either. That’s why many European countries that provide national health-care coverage for IVF and for neonatal intensive care units have much stricter rules than we do in the US concerning the number of embryos doctors can transfer into the womb.

A lot of data could be readily gotten, but reporting is not mandatory, and many clinics don’t want to provide their statistics. Clinics that don’t report are actually increasing their business, so there’s almost a reverse incentive. Changes in policy could address this problem, but unfortunately the lack of data is not accidental. Many clinics don’t want to tell potential customers that there may be problems; they just want to say, “We’ll bring a baby into your life.” Some clinics don’t want young women they recruit as egg donors to fully understand that the procedures might cause harms, such as Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome, which can have serious symptoms. Collecting and publishing more data might reveal limitations and dangers.

“I would say that more information is better for those who are considering using these procedures; but some IVF doctors don’t want all the data out there, and they have had sway.”

Robert Klitzman

DCYou’ve called the ART industry in the United States a kind of Wild West in terms of the relative lack of regulation. Is there a business opportunity here to form some sort of watchdog group?

RKThe American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and other physician organizations have done a good job of coming up with guidelines in many areas, but I think they can go further. For example, ASRM permits selecting the sex of a baby for “family balancing.” But what does that phrase really mean? A couple has one girl and now wants a boy? Or they have four girls and now want a boy? The organization needs to be more specific. The question of enforcement also arises. In terms of egg donation, we know that young women’s eggs are biologically better. But should a doctor try to get 18- to 21-year-old women to sell their eggs? How risky is this for their own reproductive future? Guidelines say doctors should not recruit such young women, but clinics often do so anyway. Hence, even when there are guidelines, many clinics don’t follow them and resist stronger guidelines. Today there’s little if any consequence for not adhering to them.

In this “Wild West,” cowboys are often doing what they want without too much supervision. There are many wonderful IVF doctors; by no means am I saying they are all bad. But oversight and greater openness to potential limitations are important.

The danger of jumping in right now and attempting to design babies using CRISPR/gene editing is that we really don’t know the full effects. Patients should be able to make fully informed decisions.

DCIn the real Wild West, people knew it was wild because they had a model of what civilization looked like. But we don’t have a model for reference. We’re building from scratch.

RKYes. Part of this is because of ever newer technologies. But just as with implanting multiple embryos, doctors widely used—and sometimes still use—technologies that turned out to be more harmful and less beneficial than thought. A technique called ICSI [intracytoplasmic sperm injection] took one sperm from a man with a very low sperm count and injected it directly into an egg. Now ICSI is used for two thirds of all patients, without regard to the man’s fertility. But the procedure turns out to double the risk of the child having intellectual disabilities. Unfortunately many potential parents don’t realize this. It may help get you pregnant, but it can cause problems.

A major challenge of the “Wild West” is that doctors might be making a lot of money but may not always communicate the risks as well as they should, because they have a conflict of interest: profiting from what they’re doing.

DCWhere do your books Designing Babies and Am I My Genes? overlap?

RKAt one point scientists thought they would discover the cancer gene, the alcoholic gene, the schizophrenia gene. But lo and behold, we’re finding out that for most common diseases and traits, many genes are involved. Diseases can also be partly genetic, partly environmental. There’s a lot of nuance.

“Listing the potential causes of a disease is like describing the possible reasons for a traffic jam: Did a car break down? Was there an accident? Is a bridge closed? Is it icy? Is it rush hour? Or some combination of those?”

Robert Klitzman

Several companies market direct-to-consumer genetic testing, pushing the idea that these services will “give you important health information” and “help you get control of your health.” Precision medicine can indeed potentially help many people. But our genetics are complicated. Am I My Genes? explored how genetic testing serves almost as a Rorschach, with people interpreting the information in varying ways.

The idea for Designing Babies grew from my work on Genes. When I interviewed people at risk for Huntington’s, I thought I would hear about issues of discrimination or insurance. But what I heard was concerns about their kids—whether to adopt or abort, or to test embryos. I heard a very disturbing observation: “If I abort or don’t choose an embryo because it has the same mutation that I have, I should have been aborted; am I saying that my life was not worth living?” That question still haunts me. It made me want to investigate further the ethical, moral, social and psychological questions that assisted reproductive technologies present us.

The common element and challenge that comes from both books is that we still know relatively little about genes. It’s been only 60 years or so since the discovery of the DNA helix and how hereditary information is encoded. The human genome was first sequenced less than 20 years ago. Much of what we have found is not what we expected.

DCYou write about “individual procreative liberty.” Do you have any concern that in the future parents might be pressured to use ART to avoid creating an “imperfect” child? Could there be a time when national health care includes or compels IVF, and that parents who opt to have children with disease will be ostracized and lose access to social services because they willingly brought a baby into the world that would require more than its share of medical and support resources?

RKPast attempts to improve the genes of people led to horrific results. Nazi Germany sought to remove bad genes by killing people. Hitler got his ideas about eugenics from the United States and our unfortunate history of racism. In the 1920s, we had eugenics fairs and better-baby contests. So we need to be very careful about efforts to improve our genes.

Given our history, however, it’s hard to predict what the government will do. We know that at one point the government pushed sterilization of the so-called feebleminded. And the question of abortion is obviously very contentious.

The cost of IVF will be an important factor in shaping its possible future. We don’t have enough money to provide basic health services to all citizens now. So even if IVF becomes more accessible and less expensive, which I think it will to a certain degree, I don’t think it will ever be mandated. People just get pregnant “naturally” all the time, planned or unplanned. I don’t think we’re going to get to the point where we’ll just not support you unless you used IVF.

DCWhat is the most important question your book helps us explore?

RKWhat kind of society do we want in terms of our ability to design babies—whether choosing or discarding certain embryos; buying and selling human eggs, sperm, and embryos; or altering genes directly?

As with all technologies, ARTs can be used for good or for bad. How do we choose the good over the bad? Do we want to live in a world where people use all of these technologies with few limits? Undoubtedly everyone in America knows someone, whether they realize it or not, who has had infertility problems and has used these technologies. These patients’ journeys have often been lonely and isolating.

I think the book can help open up the conversation and assist us all—as individuals, as friends and family members, and as a society as a whole—in figuring out how best to use these technologies for our own good.

Streaming: Stumfilm – the silence of Danes

 Cache   

This exemplary free-to-use site, which presents the newly restored riches of Denmark’s early cinema archive, is well worth shouting about…

Silent film’s place in the streaming realm is a conflicted one: it’s at once ubiquitous and oddly hard to find. Which is to say there’s plenty of it lying around online, often free of charge. The Internet Archive, much praised in this column, is obviously rich in early cinema gems if you can negotiate some circuitous searching, while YouTube is awash in soundless classics and curios alike, albeit in variable states of repair. (At least sound quality is never an issue.)

Netflix has more to offer than you’d expect at first glance. The streaming giant’s back catalogue of classics may have dwindled, yet it’s still the place to find a neat transfer of, for example, trailblazing female film-maker Lois Weber’s landmark abortion drama Where Are My Children?, a fascinating social time capsule that’s also less irrelevant than you’d like it to be a full century after it was made. (It’s just over an hour long: sandwich it between episodes of The Crown in your Netflix queue.) Obviously, Mubi occasionally delivers the silent goods, while the BFI Player remains a go-to spot for early British cinema in particular.

A Truly Unique Copenhagen Townhouse

Nothing can make my mood jump to total happiness – even on yet another rainy day – as when a perfect home pops up in my scroll. This is one of those homes! I am pretty sure you’ll like the pictures too, so just start scrolling. Cathrine Widunok Wichmand, one of Denmark’s most popular blogger RockPaperDresses, lives in a renovated two-story townhouse in Frederiksberg together with her husband, their son Eddie and their dog Frida. Their house, a former film factory from 1868, is in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Copenhagen (I used to live just around the corner), and is an inspiring mix of industrial, creative and Scandinavian design both new and vintage – I especially love the curtains in the bedroom, which really helps creating a intimate space.  Throughout the house you find so many great details; the black steel spiral staircase, the massive glass doors leading to the rooftop (how great is that light on the Spanish chair?), and overall just the use of colors. Oh, and how cute is Eddie’s room? Great use of wallpaper on one wall continuing up on the ceiling. Do you like it? This is truly a very unique home. See […]

Opera All Over the Map

 Cache   

See this story at GayCityNews.com.

BY DAVID SHENGOLD

Community News Group

Montreal offers a lot of classical music — as well as diversity, much of historical and architectural interest, fine restaurants, and a designated Gay Village not far via Metro or even by foot from the venues where the two operas I saw were performed. (Like many such ‘hoods, it’s said to be less gay than back in the day.)

“Lucia di Lammermoor” (November 9), from Opéra de Montréal, filled the vast, modern Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, named for a longtime Met conductor married in turn to fine second-tier divas Queena Mario and Rose Bampton. As Lucia, Kathleen Kim took over rehearsals on a week’s notice from the vocally more opulent but usually dramatically static Albina Shagimuratova. The company was lucky to get Kim, a diminutive, vulnerable stage figure with some interpretive guts and notably good staccati. Her voice lacks much weight below and high E flats were not on this occasion stellar, but she more than earned her check.

The production’s raison d’etre and highest achievement was the very first Edgardo of locally bred and trained tenor star Frédéric Antoun. A very credible Romantic hero, Antoun sang extremely well in good style, balancing Gallic float with Latin ping in his phrasing. He offered — in key! — one of the best final scenes since Alfredo Kraus’ long tenure in the great role, this despite being ludicrously upstaged by five (!!!) ghosts, an ill-advised hallmark “innovation” (as if!) of Michael Cavanagh’s otherwise clunkily old fashioned staging in the late Robert O’Hearn’s “Victor Book of the Opera”-worthy sets.

Cavanagh and routine conductor Fabrizio Ventura — who allowed far too many 1970s-style held final high notes — also cut the dramatically crucial Wolf’s Crag Tower scene, something one doesn’t expect at an international house. This gave Gregory Dahl’s seasoned, professional Enrico not much to do. Oleg Tsibulko’s solidly unremarkable Raimondo got his scene with Lucia. Rising tenor Mario Bahg sounded wonderful in Arturo’s brief but exposed duties, and Florence Bourg contributed a sonorous Alisa, unfazed by high Bs.

The next day brought — Antoun’s work aside — a far more interesting occasion in Opera McGill’s “Clemenza di Tito.” Michael Hidetoshi Mori’s fluid, intelligent production ingeniously blended modern choral dress with Ginette Grenier’s compelling period robes; using much more of the recitative (farmed out by Mozart to an assistant), Mori and the impressive conductor Stephen Hargreaves made this sometimes static opera compelling and exciting to a diverse public.

All the students cast showed accomplishment. Maddie Studt’s Sesto proved outstandingly credible visually, vocally and technically. The Vitellia, Avery Lafrentz, had a comic blast and showed a mettlesome, wide-ranging voice that should settle in. Olivier Gagnon was vivid and agile if not always dulcet in Tito’s tricky music; in a sudden misstep, Hargreaves rushed him through the crucial finale. Elisabeth Boudreault furnished an appealing Servilia ready for professional stages. Any music-minded visitor to Montreal should check out McGill’s calendar.

At November 14’s Boston Symphony concert, later repeated in New York, Austrian soprano Genia Kuehmeier, long away for North America, confirmed her high vocal quality in Mahler’s Fourth and honorably followed the composer’s prescribed dynamics. Andris Nelsons didn’t channel much interpretive specificity with his technically top-notch players’ work. The concert’s takeaway was the truly sensational playing of Leif Ove Andsnes in Grieg’s flashy, derivative Piano Concerto.

The next night Carnegie hosted the Chicago Symphony under Riccardo Muti in a program focused on Rome. Bizet’s youthful “Roma”, despite some initially intriguing channeling of brass chords reminiscent of “Tannhaeuser,” proved an exercise in spurious orchestral color; to my surprise the string section seemed under-rehearsed, which they were assuredly not in the final work, Respighi’s facile showpiece “The Pines of Rome.” In between came the real deal: Berlioz’s cantata “La mort de Cléopâtre,” a practice run for his later heroine Didon in “Les troyens.” Muti gets Berlioz and shook the heavens, as did Joyce DiDonato in a terrifically impressive demonstration of meaningful French declamation, stage savvy, and the vocal chops (up to ringing high B flats) to evoke the Egyptian ruler’s pride, regret, and desperate resolve. The crowd veritably shouted its approval; high time for her Didon to occupy a local throne!

Unlike New York, our nation’s capital still has a flourishing concert organization, Washington Concert Opera. November 24’s “Hamlet” offered the kind of wow-I’m-glad-to-be-present experience that one associates with great evenings when the much-missed Opera Orchestra of New York presented such nonpareil stars as Mariella Devia, Gabriela Benacková, and Renato Bruson. Ambroise Thomas’ score — here shorn of the ballet — may not be adequate to Shakespeare’s play (what could be?) but can boast several very fine scenes. Antony Walker let us hear the usually suppressed original final scene, with a (somewhat) happy ending in which Hamlet, Gertrude, Polonius, and Laertes all survive.

Jacques Imbrailo, best known for Billy Budd and Pelleas, proved very impressive as a Byronic, style-imbued Prince of Denmark, bringing an emo Ralph Fiennes vibe to his dramatic performance and using layered dynamics to fill out the portions — like the much-derided drinking song, actually clever in context — somewhat heavily scored for his sonorous lyric baritone. Lisette Oropesa also achieved a musical and theatrical triumph as Ophelia, finding the part’s hurt and pathos as well as the terrific staccati and chromatic scales; she has become an excellent interpreter of French opera.

The others, while satisfying, needed some further Gallic stylistic coaching. Eve Gigliotti brought a wide-ranging, dramatically implicated sound to Gertrude, a fine part, and Jonas Hacker dispatched Laertes’ limited but not easy music with flair. If his Claudius sounded rather weathered, Tom Fox has kept his range and his stage artistry.

Walker had assembled several other imposing low-voiced singers in Matthew Scollin (Horatio/ First Gravedigger), Brian Kontes (Ghost, channeling “Semiramide”), and Timothy Bruno (Polonius). Walker’s forces, while not perfect throughout, played with intent. It was an exciting evening.

UNDP and stakeholders validate Schools Re-thinking Plastic Initiative final report

 Cache   
A Koloale student buying food served in a stainless steel bowl in Week 13.


THE United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), relevant national stakeholders and representatives from five schools in Honiara took part in the final validation workshop within the “Schools Re-thinking Plastic Initiative”, in Honiara on Tuesday 26th November 2019.

Koloale, Florence Young, Emmaus, St Nicholas, and Honiara High School have been part of an experiment which applied behavioural insights methods. For 13 weeks, starting in late July, two schemes were introduced in schools during lunchtimes to reduce single-use plastic:  Deposit Return and Discount Schemes.  The Solomon Islands National University (SINU) students were also actively engaged in collecting data and analysis arising from this test trial. 

Results of this experiment are interesting and promising: for instance, the Deposit Return scheme showed that most students brought back the reusable containers after finishing food to collect a small deposit back from the vendors. The Discount Scheme was most successful amongst kindergarten and primary school students, while among the secondary school students, it was seen as “not cool” to bring a lunch box from home. 

Coping with the increasing use of single plastic products and managing waste is a growing concern for Honiara city. As this trial shows, changing behavior and raising awareness offers new ways for addressing this challenge across the Solomon Islands. 

The findings of this initiative will be captured in a report which will offer useful insights to the Government of Solomon Islands as it implements the national waste management and pollution control strategy. The report also makes a recommendation to phase out single-use plastics in the Solomon Islands starting next year.

The Waste Management Innovation Initiative was supported by UNDP, through funding from the Government of Denmark in partnership with the Government of Solomon Islands (SIG).

Rain reaches Finland later but ahead of this it's a dry and bright day. Dry and sunny too for the Baltic States though cloud builds form the west later.

18 Wind and Solar Markets to Watch in 2020

 Cache   

The world’s total renewable power capacity will grow 50 percent between 2019 and 2024, according to the International Energy Agency. For investors keen to tap into this growth, mostly driven by solar and wind, the question is where to look.

To find out, GTM asked a range of industry experts and insiders for their recommendations on wind and solar markets to watch in 2020. We ignored those markets that already made the list last year.

What follows is a smattering of mature markets returning to form and some that are brand-new.

Without further ado, and in alphabetical order...

Australia: Wind

We listed Australia as a solar market to watch last year, and the country remains one of the more interesting places to invest in PV. But it’s also a big deal for wind power, said Karin Ohlenforst, director of market intelligence at the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). Even though the country’s large-scale renewable energy target has been reached, she said, “the fundamentals for wind are so good a market of up to 2 gigawatts is expected by 2020.” 

Brazil: Wind

Brazil is another maturing renewable energy market where GWEC sees ongoing opportunities for wind in 2020. The wind industry group expects growth in Brazilian installations, along with those in Argentina and Chile, that will come from the execution of auctioned capacity and growing opportunities for bilateral power-purchase agreements. 

Chile: Solar and wind

Chile has long been seen as one of Latin America’s strongest markets for renewables, and the country continues to attract investment from solar developers such as Spain's Solarpack. “Opportunities can still arise for new solar capacity” in the country, said Solarpack’s CEO, Pablo Burgos, although it remains to be seen whether investor confidence might be dented by the anti-government protests that erupted in October. 

China: Solar and wind

China is hardly a new market for wind and solar, but the offshore wind market “is expected to almost double [in 2020] compared to 2019,” said Rolf Kragelund, director for global offshore wind at Wood Mackenzie. GWEC estimates the offshore wind market could hit 4 gigawatts of capacity. Turning to PV, Wood Mackenzie believes a subsidy-free project pipeline could add 9 gigawatts of capacity to the grid in 2020. 

Ethiopia: Solar

Ethiopia’s hydro-heavy generation mix means the country already has enviable levels of clean energy on the grid. The trouble is that most of the country's residents aren’t on the grid, which is why Ethiopia is looking to boost solar development, said Global Green Growth Institute Director General Frank Rijsberman. “You can put solar on the rooftops, and [then have] mini grids and smaller independent systems” sited in rural areas, Rijsberman said. “Small...utility-scale solar that can deal with secondary cities and so on: That, I think, is the future.”

Greece: Solar

Greece is one of several European markets that Solarpack's Burgos is keeping an eye on in 2020. Renewables investment could benefit from the Greek administration’s decision to phase out coal generation by 2028, announced in September. “Greece is the only country in Southeast Europe to have announced a coal phaseout date,” noted advocacy group Europe Beyond Coal in a press statement. “Details of the strategy to achieve the target will be announced by the end of 2019."

Hungary: Solar

Like Greece, Hungary in Eastern Europe has announced plans to abandon coal, with a switch-off date of 2030. In November, the Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority launched the nation’s first renewable energy auction, giving clarity to the future project pipeline. Burgos said Hungary is now among the European markets “putting solar schemes at the forefront of their renewable energy commitments.”

India: Solar

India’s massive and multifaceted solar market continues to deliver opportunities for investors, with Wood Mackenzie’s Q2 2019 Global Solar PV Market Outlook reporting on “auction activity starting to pick up now that [the] election period is over.” Long-term solar growth in the country is likely to be buoyed by a government target of 500 gigawatts of renewable generation by 2030.

Indonesia: Solar

With its vast population and 6,000 or so inhabited islands, Indonesia harbors massive potential for solar developers. So far, progress has been sluggish, with a rooftop net metering scheme failing to stimulate interest. However, lawmakers changed the rules for rooftop PV in October, potentially paving the way for increased growth. Indonesia only had around 60 megawatts of solar installed at the end of last year but plans to boost capacity to 6.5 gigawatts by 2025.

Netherlands: Solar

Although relatively mature, the Dutch solar market still has plenty of room for near-term growth, with 5 gigawatts of capacity expected to be installed between 2019 and 2020. Despite the country’s low irradiance, its "support mechanisms, in the form of feed-in tariffs and tax incentives, help to boost solar” there, said Burgos.  

New Zealand: Wind

Wood Mackenzie’s wind power outlook for Asia-Pacific gained a lift from an unusual source in September. The analyst firm reported that contract wins in New Zealand would “boost an otherwise dormant market” in Asia-Pacific. Just two large projects, Waipipi and Turitea, added 252 megawatts of capacity to New Zealand’s wind industry pipeline this year. The question now is whether that momentum will be sustained in 2020. 

Oman: Solar

Middle Eastern markets remain a magnet for PV developers thanks to their excellent solar resource, growing energy needs and often favorable regulation. In its Q2 2019 Global Solar PV Market Outlook, Wood Mackenzie singled out Oman for special treatment. “Competitive state tenders continue to be launched at a fast clip, including 1,100 megawatts of new project sites at Manah,” WoodMac said.

Poland: Solar

GTM highlighted Poland’s growing wind potential last year. Despite previous setbacks, the country now seems earnest in wanting to foster renewables, with offshore wind in particular looking to benefit. Solar developers are keen to grab a piece of the action, too. Burgos said the Polish solar market had much in common with Hungary. Both states “have committed to reduce their carbon footprint and both are supporting PV with feed-in tariff models,” he said.

South Africa: Wind

South Africa’s once-vibrant renewable energy market has had a rocky few years courtesy of Eskom, the nation’s beleaguered electricity behemoth. But with the too-big-to-fail state utility slowly getting its affairs back under control, the picture for wind is improving, said Ohlenforst. “After two years of pausing, installations are [set] to pick up again in 2020,” she predicted, with the market poised to top 700 megawatts next year.

South Korea: Wind and solar

South Korea “would like to scale up” on renewables, said Rijsberman of the Global Green Growth Institute. “They have the money [and] the government has the targets.” The problem for developers is finding affordable land in the crowded country, he said. This is hampering efforts to scale up solar development and increasingly putting the focus on offshore wind as a major contributor to South Korea’s clean energy plans.

Ukraine: Solar

Last year the Ukraine was enthusiastically hyped as a wind destination. And in October the market delivered with the announcement of Europe’s largest onshore wind farm, a 750-megawatt monster in the southeast of the country. The country’s PV market, which is now approaching 3 gigawatts of capacity, also remains buoyant despite moves to replace feed-in tariffs with an auction system. Developers such as Solarpack and Scatec Solar are eyeing the market, with the latter installing its first Ukrainian plant in August.

U.S.: Wind and solar

Even as the renewables industry waits to see if there will be an extension to the supporting federal tax credits, developers are bullish about the U.S. market. In the immediate term, the country is in the middle of its biggest-ever build-out of onshore wind capacity, and the offshore market is taking off as East Coast states increase their targets.

Vietnam: Wind

The end of a generous feed-in tariff in June this year saw developers rushing to connect almost 4.5 gigawatts of PV capacity to the grid in a matter of months. Now that the solar rush is over, the government is looking to repeat the trick with wind, also offering enticing incentives, said Rijsberman. “A lot of companies are now doing the same thing for wind in Vietnam as they were doing for large-scale solar,” he said. “What hasn’t really happened yet is rooftop solar, partly because the regulation doesn’t favor it.”


          

Mitsubishi Eyes Leading Position in Europe’s Energy Market With Eneco Acquisition

 Cache   
A group led by Mitsubishi beat out other bidders including Shell in reaching a €4.1 billion ($4.5 billion) deal to buy Dutch energy company Eneco, which the Japanese conglomerate intends to make the centerpiece of its growth in the European energy market.
 
The winning consortium includes Mitsubishi, with an 80 percent stake, and Japanese utility Chubu, with the remaining 20 percent.
 
Owned by several dozen Dutch municipalities, Eneco is the second largest electricity supplier in the Netherlands and is also active in Germany and Belgium. The company operates about 2 gigawatts of wind capacity, roughly a quarter of it offshore, alongside nearly 300 megawatts of solar.
 
Mitsubishi is already a substantial investor in Europe's electricity market, including a 20 percent stake in U.K. electricity supplier OVO. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, part of the Mitsubishi Group, is co-owner of offshore wind turbine manufacturer MHI Vestas. 
 
Mitsubishi plans to transfer 400 megawatts of offshore wind assets to Eneco once the all-cash acquisition goes through.
 
Eneco offers "a platform to further grow in the European market, in which we intend to have a leading position in the energy transition," Takehiko Kakiuchi, CEO of Mitsubishi Corporation, said in a press statement.
 
Offshore wind is at the center of an existing collaboration between Eneco and Mitsubishi dating back to 2012. The two companies have jointly invested in a trio of offshore wind farms, all of them using MHI Vestas turbines, as well as in a 48-megawatt battery in Germany.
 
In a presentation used to introduce the consortium that was shared with GTM, Chubu and Mitsubishi pointed to five growth areas they will focus on with Eneco, including growing their renewable energy asset base and expanding the utility business to new territories.
 
The financial backing of Mitsubishi and Chubu will bolster Eneco's credit rating, making it more competitive in future offshore wind auctions, the companies said.
 
The next two years will see offshore wind auctions in the Netherlands, the U.K., Denmark, Belgium, France and Germany, with a total capacity of up to 9.5 gigawatts on offer. Poland is also preparing to pursue an 8-gigawatt offshore wind target by 2040.
 
The final shortlist of bidders for Eneco reportedly included private equity firm KKR and a joint bid from Shell and the Dutch pension fund PGGM. 
 
Shell said its ambitions for growth in the power sector remain unchanged by the loss of the deal.
 
"We respect this outcome but are disappointed," said Maarten Wetselaar, director of Shell's integrated gas and new energies units. “We believe that together with PGGM we made a competitive bid for Eneco, including an attractive package of non-financial terms and long-term growth plans."
 
Eneco's current CEO, Ruud Sondag, will resign when the deal is finalized, to be replaced by an as-yet-unnamed Dutch CEO.

Norway's sugar tax flop

 Cache   
Imagine the government raising the cost of living so much that it's cheaper to go shopping in Sweden. That's the situation Norwegians find themselves in...

Norwegian sugar tax sends sweet-lovers over border to Sweden

It seems unfair to call it a sweet shop. In the shopping centre north of Charlottenberg in south-western Sweden, barely four miles from Norway and less than 90 minutes’ drive from Oslo, is a candy superstore.

Arrayed across 3,500 sq metres of floor space – half a football pitch – are aisle upon aisle of sugary treats, more than 4,000 products in all, from sour strawberries, liquorice laces and fruity gumballs to red rockets, Lion bars, M&Ms, Milky Ways and Oreos.

One of maybe 30 similar confectionery and soft drink stores lining the Swedish side of the border from south to far north, it is, said Matts Idbratt, operations manager for Gottebiten – which runs half of them – “the biggest sweet shop in the world. We think”.

Between them, those stores turn over about SEK2bn (£160m) a year – and they exist solely because the price tags on the pick’n’mix bags, snack bars, chocolate boxes and soft drinks they sell are, on average, less than half those in neighbouring Norway.

“It’s crazy,” said Eirik Bergland, a 39-year-old laboratory technician from the Oslo suburb of Bjerke. With three children under 12, he has made three cross-border shopping trips this year – although not just for sweets, he stressed.

“A lot of products are cheaper in Sweden than in Norway,” Bergland said. “Alcohol, tobacco, plenty of stuff. Cross-border shopping has happened for decades. But candy and soft drinks are a lot cheaper. A whole, whole lot cheaper.”

Norway has had a tax on sugary products since 1922. The Guardian says it was introduced 'to raise revenue for the state, rather than improve the health of the nation' as if this makes it any different from modern sugar taxes.

In January last year, the tax on chocolate and confectionery went up by 83% to the equivalent of £3.12 per kilo. The tax on fizzy drinks - including zero-sugar drinks - works out at about 43p a litre.

The result was predictable...

The tax increase had “quite an impact on our sales”, said Idbratt, whose giant sweet emporium is part of a booming cross-border trade that earned Swedish businesses – some owned by Norwegian investors – SEK16.6bn (£1.3bn) last year, 10% more than in 2017.

Idbratt said Gottebiten, founded by three entrepreneurial brothers in 1997, had “seen more customers, and existing customers are buying more”. Norwegian shoppers made 9.2m trips across the border last year, according to Statistics Norway.

It's all very reminiscent of Denmark's fat tax fiasco.

Still, there is no doubt that Norwegians have cut down on sugar, as another Guardian article reported last week:

Norwegians are eating less sugar than at any time in the last 44 years, the health directorate in Oslo has said, announcing that annual consumption per person had fallen by more than 1kg a year since 2000.

.. The directorate’s annual report on the Norwegian diet said that average annual consumption of sugar had plummeted from 43kg to 24kg per person between 2000 and 2018 – including a 27% reduction in the past decade – to a level lower than that recorded in 1975.

It's not clear if these figures take account of cross-border shopping, but it is a remarkable drop either way. And so, naturally, rates of obesity have fallen commensurately, right?

Wrong. According to the WHO, Norway has an obesity rate of 23.1 per cent, higher than Sweden's 20.6 per cent and - for that matter - higher than Finland's 22.2 per cent and Denmark's 19.7 per cent.

Moreover, the record shows that Norway's obesity rate has increased at a remarkably steady rate for many years, unaffected by changes in taxes or sugar consumption.



The picture is similar in Britain where sugar consumption has fallen by around a fifth since the 1960s - although campaigners are reluctant to admit this - while obesity has risen.

Maybe - just maybe - sugar isn't the culprit and crude 'public health' policies based on dogma rather than facts don't work?

Still, good news for Sweden's border town confectionery industry.

How Religion Influences Belonging: The Importance of Church to Eritrean Refugees in Denmark

Jennie Feldrup Kristoffersen

Global Refugee Studies, Master, (Master Programme) 4. term, 2019

Student thesis: Master thesis (including HD thesis)

  • Jennie Feldrup Kristoffersen
4. term, Global Refugee Studies, Master (Master Programme)
Focusing on how Eritrean refugees in Denmark spend their time, I uncovered a trend that the vast majority of them regularly attend church, and the majority are Eritrean Orthodox Christian. This thesis sets out to examine why religion, and specifically Christianity, is important to and prioritized by Eritrean refugees in Denmark, with the guiding sub-research questions: “How does religion influence Eritrean refugees' feeling of belonging?” and “How might coming from a totalitarian dictatorship effect Eritrean refugees’ involvement in church?”

The empirical data of this thesis is based on interviews conducted with Eritrean refugees living in Denmark, as well as participant observation. To explain and understand the trends seen in the fieldwork, the thesis draws on Charles Hirshman’s (2004) theory on belonging to look at Eritrean refugees’ participation in church in Denmark. It is suggested that participation in church in Denmark can be seen as a way to feel a sense of belonging, and as a way for them to continue to participate in the community familiar to them from their home country.

This thesis also draws on Michael Bernhard and Ekrem Karakoç (2007) to look at the effects of coming from a totalitarian dictatorship, which helped explain the extent that Eritreans’ participation in Danish society revolves around the church rather than other social activities. It explained that church is one of the only organized activities that is permitted in Eritrea, and it continues to be the primary activity that they participate in after moving to Denmark.

Through the research carried out for this thesis, some insight was gained into why and how religion might be approached as a key factor in where Eritrean refugees find their belonging and spend their time in Denmark. The thesis demonstrates that Eritrean refugees’ experience of living in a totalitarian dictatorship has led to lasting effects whereby there is a longer adjustment period in which they adapt to the freedom they now have to participate in a wide variety of social organizations and activities without any restriction.

'Squeaky Curtain' divides Europe’s Eastern and Western mice

 Cache   


  • The house mouse diverged into two subspecies depending on which humans they followed.
  • The Western and Eastern European house mice can interbreed, but the results are, well, mixed.
  • The continent remains divided between Eastern and Western mice except for a narrow contact zone where hybrids eek out a living.

musculus v. domesticus


It's been 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the Iron Curtain is now a distant and dimming memory. But that's only true if you're a human. In the mouse world, Europe is still divided into East and West. As this map shows, the line that separates both halves of the continent is strangely similar to the Cold War frontier between capitalism and communism.

The "Squeaky Curtain" starts at the Baltic Sea, cutting through Denmark, Germany, and Austria before almost making it to the Adriatic. Instead, the line shadows the formerly Yugoslav coast before swerving east, keeping the southern Balkans in "the West," finally diving into the Black Sea.

West of the line lives the Mus musculus domesticus, the Western European house mouse. To the East roams the Mus musculus musculus, the Eastern European house mouse. On average, the Eastern mouse is smaller and browner, the Western one generally a bit sturdier and usually grey. Both subspecies branched from the same ancestor, some 500,000 years ago in Asia.

What ultimately separated house mice into these two subspecies are the humans they chose to follow. The ones moving through Asia's interior via Russia toward Eastern Europe turned into Eastern European house mice. The ones aiming for the Mediterranean, hitchhiking on ships to reach Western Europe (and eventually also the Americas and Australia) became Western European house mice.

Baltic to Black Seas


The 'Squeaky Curtain', dividing Europe from the Baltic to the Black Seas in two zones, for Western and Eastern house mice.

When the two subspecies met up again in Europe, is unclear. "It has been suggested that source populations first met in the southern region of the current hybrid zone, and only more recently in Central and Northern Europe, with progressive contact from south to north similar to a zipper being pulled up through Europe," write the authors of Genetic conflict outweighs heterogametic incompatibility in the mouse hybrid zone?, a scientific paper that examines interbreeding between Western and Eastern European house mice (and the origin of this map).

"Progressive contact" isn't necessarily a euphemism for doing the dance with two tails. The long genetic separation means the subspecies have drifted far apart. While males of either subspecies generally don't care whom they mate with, females prefer the company of males of the same subspecies. That limits interbreeding. And hybrid couples usually produce fewer offspring than "pure" Eastern or Western ones. Both factors help explain why interbreeding only occurs in a relatively narrow and stable hybrid zone no more than 10 to 20 km wide.

The reduced capacity for interbreeding may be an indication that the two subspecies are in the process of becoming two separate species, entirely unable to interbreed. Only at the centre of the hybrid zone do hybrid mice occur in significant numbers relative to their Eastern and Western forebears. But not everything is gloomy for the hybrids: they're more resistant to parasite-borne diseases than both Eastern and Western European house mice.

Now you know.

Maternity acupuncture in the UK, what do you know about it?

 Cache   
Women are seeking acupuncture treatments for a variety of women's health–related conditions. A European Union (EU)/China survey from acupuncturists indicated that 41% of EU respondents commonly treated obstetric/gynecologic issues, of which half of them from the UK. Another U.K. survey of acupuncturists reported that fertility acupuncture is 15% of their treatments. Maternity acupuncture is also popular. In pregnancy, the most-common conditions were nausea and vomiting, lower-back or pelvic-girdle pain (LBPGP), and labor preparation and induction. Acupuncture during pregnancy and labor has been evaluated as safe when used by a suitably qualified practitioner, and a growing willingness to refer for pregnancy-related acupuncture has been reported from Western health practitioners.

The majority of acupuncturists in countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, offer maternity treatment through private clinics. In contrast, the majority of maternity acupuncture care in European countries—such as Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland—is administered by hospital midwives who take short training courses.

A recent survey from the UK shows that the most-common maternity situations encountered were: birth preparation [96.5%]; nausea & vomiting [94.2%]; and inducing labor [90.8%]. More than 50% of the practitioners were also treating lower-back and pelvic pain [88.5%], breech presentations [85.0%], threatened miscarriages [63.2%], and headaches/migraines [52.8%]. Only a minority (8 [9.1%]) attended births. A greater number of referrals were received from medical health professionals for pregnancy [65.8%] than for fertility [19.5%] or menstrual conditions [9.7%].

Fortune Favours the Bold The Duke of Wellington was an extraordinary man. He had two extremely successful careers – the first in the military, the second in politics – and he invented the gumboot. He received six – count them, six! – knighthoods, and not one of them was for the gumboot, which is surely worth a knighthood in its own right. Arthur Wellesley was born in 1769 in Dublin, as the son of Anglo-Irish aristocracy. He was a military hot shot, commanding British forces against the Dutch, India, the Maratha Empire, Denmark, and, most famously, Napoleon’s French army. His…

horse dildo This toy smells nasty! It is supposed to be velvety but I found it sticky and squishy. The raised hearts did nothing for me, except to make it look pretty. The texture is swirled hearts, they are to soft and really don't do anything I really couldn't feel them. horse dildo

wholesale vibrators So, overall I suppose I WOULD recommend these to a friend, simply not for extended use. Probably the only thing I would feel safe about using anally on a regular basis is silicone, or other nonporous materials, and there are plenty of options that fit in those loose requirements.

animal dildo First, let's talk about The Good, in the form of the Dora Milaje, or the female bodyguards assigned to protect the Black Panther (and/or whomever holds the throne of Wakanda). Let's take a second to celebrate how wonderful it is that these Secret Service agents are a group of badass warrior women from various Wakandan tribes, rather than a bunch of men in boring black suits and earpieces, like I'm used to seeing in blockbuster movies. In fact, to touch on costuming for a little bit longer, I just have to appreciate how beautiful (and practical) the costumes were. animal dildo

dildos Okay, so I'm not really poor. But here in my country lubes aren't that popular (though I'm really looking forward to trying them!) and the sex lubes are very expensive, to be honest.

Adult Toys Yeah I guess the problem is that there is no standardized definition of the directive. Like if it was just "don interfere with developing cultures" then what I said would make sense, as deflecting the asteroid would be interfering; but if you add the caveat "you can interfere vibrators, so long as they don know about it" then it makes sense as you said, they do it all the time. I guess what troubles me is that it is like they have no idea if they prevented another intelligent species from ever getting the chance to exist by interfering; for example the composition of the planet may have changed in such a way post collision that facilitated such species evolution perhaps at the expense of the ones currently there.

wholesale dildos I did not have that option, so I did the best I could. I cared for NK as you might expect you would when working with the flu. I gave him attention and made sure he was safe, fed and clean but my mind was elsewhere.

vibrators While I like the Mini Miracle massager, this attachment just did not do anything for me.

Since this item is spandex, it's not recommended that you throw it in the dryer every time you wash it, but I imagine it would hold up just fine in a washing machine (maybe get a lingerie bag if you're worried about it catching on something). It would probably keep odors, so if it came in contact with cigarette smoke or something, it should probably be washed to get the smell out. It's small and easy to hand wash.. dog dildo

Doran. But yeah, that makes alot more sense. Personally I dont give a fuck where they are from if they behave like arseholes then then as far as i concerned they come from an arse.

Why do I sneeze when I eat? In your husband's case, sneezing can be related to food in two ways. The first is a condition called gustatory rhinitis, in which people sneeze, have a watery nose, or get congested after eating, Any food can trigger symptoms, though the most severe reaction is apparently caused by hot, spicy foods and alcohol. What is the best antihistamine for allergic rhinitis? Used twice per day, especially when combined with a topical nasal corticosteroid, azelastine is effective at managing both allergic and nonallergic rhinitis. The second-generation oral antihistamines currently available in the United States are cetirizine, levocetirizine, desloratadine, fexofenadine, and loratadine. What medication dries up mucus? "Decongestants dry up the mucus that collects in the back of the throat as a result of the infection. Expectorants melt the mucus." Look for over-the-counter decongestants that contain pseudoephedrine or phenylephrine, such as Sudafed. Can allergic rhinitis cause asthma? Most people with allergic rhinitis have a blocked or runny nose. Some also have sneezing and itching in the nose and back of throat. Not everyone with allergic rhinitis has all these symptoms. People with asthma may not recognise that they also have allergic rhinitis, because the symptoms can be mistaken for asthma.

Nuummioq, 2009 - ★★

 Cache   

Drama about a man who finds out that he is very ill. He doesn´t know what to do at first. He thinks about going to Denmark for a therapy that might help. The deadly illness frightens him so much that he finds it very hard to confront himself with it. He thinks about suicide and tries to do it, but finds out that he doesn´t want to die. He falls in love, maybe because he feels alive being in love. All in all this is a very slow movie, that plays in darkness for quite some scenes. I really wanted to like “Nuummioq” but I found it to slow and I had difficulties with the plot and the development. It maybe is mean, since the story is about an existential topic, but the movie didn´t reach me. I felt disconnected most of the time and became impatient, started to wait for the end.
