Ryan Bartlett Managing Climate Change in Post-Conflict Nepal

For the developing world, the impacts of climate change - from sea level rise and more potent and erratic precipitation patterns to rapid deglaciation - are becoming an increasingly frightening reality. Adaptation planning has thus become critical for policymakers in developing countries as these impacts begin to have serious detrimental economic and social implications. Due to a lack of data in many regions, the difficulty of scaling down global circulation models to the country level, and the relative nascence of adaptation theory and policy, however, there is little guidance as to what interventions are likely to be most effective, especially in post-conflict developing countries that face a number of institutional capacity constraints due to years of instability. Focusing on one such highly vulnerable country, this analysis assesses the challenges facing effective adaptation in Nepal and offers recommendations for policy makers moving forward.

Theresa Regan PhD Understanding Autism in Adults and Aging Adults. Improving Diagnosis and Quality of Life

Autism is a childhood condition ... right? Not right. Children with autism grow into adults with autism. The great strides we have made in understanding childhood autistic behaviors and interventions have lagged dramatically behind the needs of aging autistics. What of the young adult trying to build relationships? What of the middle aged autistic adult who has been misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder and lacks an effective treatment plan? What of the aging adult who is showing increasingly rigid autistic behaviors and is misdiagnosed as having frontotemporal dementia? Understanding Autism in Adults and Aging Adults is a one-of-a-kind resource designed to improve the correct diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder in adults. Filled with clinical stories that bring to life the concepts discussed, the book provides strategy-based interventions to address issues of personal and household management, medical care, communication, sensory processing symptoms, and emotional and behavioral regulation.

This special issue is a «how to» on overcoming the many systems-level challenges in K–12 public education to implement effective reading interventions for the vast numbers of students reading below grade level. It emphasizes building researcher–practitioner partnerships, providing ongoing professional development for teachers, and removing institutional barriers to change as the keys to effective reading intervention. Interventions for the upper grades focus on the challenges of coaxing content-area teachers to learn new routines for building background knowledge, teaching academic vocabulary, and conducting discussions to foster critical reading and knowledge application. In the primary grades, interventions follow a multi-tiered system of support where enhanced classroom instruction is supported by small-group intervention for struggling readers. The volume also discusses the importance of training special educators to implement data-based individuation. This is the 154th volume in this Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development. Its mission is to provide scientific and scholarly presentations on cutting edge issues and concepts in this subject area. Each volume focuses on a specific new direction or research topic and is edited by experts from that field.

Henry W. Snead M.D. The Truths and Myths of Weight Loss. The Scientific Evidence

In 1980, 47% of the US adults were overweight or obese compared to 65% today. This has occurred during a time when health club memberships have risen by more than 50% with 4.8 billion dollars/year being spent on home exercise equipment and more than 33 billion dollars annually spent on weight loss products and services. Also, during this time the average fat content of meals eaten dropped from 41 to 37%. There has been a 400% increase in the use of sugar-substitutes and reduced-fat food. The purchase of reduced-caloric foods increased from 19 to 76%. Furthermore, the total amount of calories eaten by women dropped by 3% and 6% by men during 1977 to 1988. Although 2/3 of American adults are overweight/obese, only 1/3 Americans (37% men and 52% women) see themselves that way. Of those that see themselves as overweight/obese fewer than 2/3 are trying to lose weight. Although 58% of American adults would like to lose weight, only 36% are following a particular diet plan and 26% exercise three times per week. The Surgeon General states that obesity rates second only to cigarette smoking as a preventable cause of disease and death in the U.S., with health care costs 117 billion dollars a year. So what has caused this complacency? Frustrated by the current inadequacies of weight loss programs, 50,000 people a year turn to surgery in the U.S. Many more are caught up in the media generated hype of fad diets, exercise equipment, and pills. Even the medical community of experts have res...

Organizations today are awash in change. Managing change requires leaders to focus simultaneously on managing the business and providing effective leadership to the people. More often than not, it is the focus on the people side that loses out. This book offers a framework for understanding the issues and competencies that contribute to effective leadership during times of change. Its purpose is to help leaders determine how to choose and move among a variety of managerial approaches-to help them see what's working, what's not working, and what's missing. In this way, leaders can more clearly assess their impact and learn how to meet the demands of both managing the business and leading the people.

Become an effective adult educator by approaching teaching systematically As the author describes at the beginning of Creating Courses for Adults, «The big idea of this book is that education for adults has to be designed.» Whether in basic skills training, English language classes, professional development workshops, personal interest courses, or formal degree programs, good teaching tends to conceal all the planning and decisions which had to be made in order to present participants with a seamless and coherent process for learning. The author posits that nobody is a completely intuitive teacher and that everybody has to make a series of choices as they put courses together. The decisions they make are important and far-reaching, and deserve to be considered carefully. Starting with the three core factors which must be taken into account when creating courses, Creating Courses for Adults walks readers through a manageable process for addressing the key decisions which must be made in order to design effective learning. Instructor factors are what the teacher brings to the teaching and learning process, such as experience and preferences. Learner factors are the influences that students bring with them, including their past experiences and expectations for the class. Context factors include the educational setting, whether in-person or online, as well as the subject matter. Readers of Creating Courses for Adults will learn a systematic approach to lesson and course design based on research into the ways adults learn and the best ways to reach them, along with pointers and tips for teaching adults in any setting.

With approximately 1 in 6 adults likely to experience a significant mental health problem at any one time (Office for National Statistics), research into effective interventions has never been more important. During the past decade there has been an increasing interest in the role that sport and physical activity can play in the treatment of mental health problems, and in mental health promotion. The benefits resulting from physiological changes during exercise are well documented, including improvement in mood and control of anxiety and depression. Research also suggests that socio-cultural and psychological changes arising from engagement in sport and physical activity carry valuable mental health benefits. Sport and Physical Activity for Mental Health is an evidence-based practical guide for nurses, allied health professionals, social workers, physical activity leaders, and sport coaches. The authors provide comprehensive analysis of a broad range of client narratives, integrating theory and the latest research to explore the effectiveness of various interventions.

In 2017, monetary interventions are actual as they have never been before. However, they have been criticised for not being effective and existing empirical evidence is mixed. The present research applies models from the Garch framework, while using monthly data from 2001 to 2017 on the Usdeur, Gbpreur, Jpyeur and Inreur rate.The results indicate that monetary interventions have a higher impact on developed country currencies than on emerging markets currencies. In addition, evidence is found that the volatility increased after the financial crisis.

PhD Charles D. Boison Relationship between Family Income and Obesity

Obesity is a chronic disease that is caused by several factors such as diet, genetics, physical inactivity, and poor dietary habits. This research focused on how income affects obesity among African Americans (AA). The data used in the study was obtained from AfricanAmerican participants living in Durham, North Carolina (NC). Studies have shown low income African Americans are disproportionately affected by chronic diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol, due to poor eating habits or diets. Some studies have also reported higher rates of obesity amongst high income earners. The purpose of this research is to address the inconsistency, as well as fill the gap in the literature on this topic.Additionally, the study is focused on other key factors that contribute to low family income and how these factors contribute to obesity among AA, specifically in Durham, NC. A qualitative approach was used to interview and glean the lived experiences of 30 participants.The findings from the study showed family income contributes to obesity. The study contributes to social change by recommending that policy makers advocate for an increase in national minimum wage, encourage educational approaches to prevent obesity, promote good eating habits, and promote adequate physical activity amongst AA.

Helen Verlander Fat Is a Feminine Issue. Why Women Are Getting Fatter. Why It Matters and What to Do About It.

Why are women fatter than ever before and what can we do about it? Today women are fatter than at any other time in history and there are 200 million more obese women than men. Yet some women are embracing obesity as a means of livelihood and validation while others are apologists for obesity, arguing that 'big is beautiful.' In this passionate polemic which draws on the latest science, Helen Verlander argues that feminism has lost its way in asserting that our main concern about obesity should revolve around self-esteem. Why is it important to get a good night's sleep for the sake of your weight? Why is a glass of orange juice making you fat and ageing you seven times faster? How does the food industry make you addicted to food? How just ten minutes of exercise a day can make a big difference. Filled with practical advice and encouragement, Fat is a Feminine Issue, is a wake-up call for women everywhere who are overweight or obese. www.Fatisafeminineissue.com

It includes papers published in the journal Conservation Evidence, evidence summarized on our database and systematic reviews collated by the Collaboration for Environmental Evidence. It is the thrid volume in the series Synopses of Conservation Evidence.Evidence was collected from all European countries west of Russia, but not those south of France, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary and Romania.A list of interventions to conserve wildlife on farmland was developed collaboratively by a team of thirteen experts. A number of interventions that are not currently agri-environment options were added during this process, such as 'Provide nest boxes for bees (solitary or bumblebees)' and 'Implement food labelling schemes relating to biodiversity-friendly farming'. Interventions relating to the creation or management of habitats not considered commercial farmland (such as lowland heath, salt marsh and farm woodland) were removed.The list of interventions was organized into categories based on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) classifications of direct threats and conservation actions. Interventions that fall under the threat category 'Agriculture' are grouped by farming system, with separate sections for interventions that apply to arable or livestock...

Mathilde Laderud Is international trade causing obesity in developing countries.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Economics - Foreign Trade Theory, Trade Policy, grade: A, , course: Economics, international trade, obesity, corruption, developing countries, global south, nestle, Pacific Island Nations, language: English, abstract: This research paper was written as my final honors thesis in economics. I was questioning the somewhat sudden high rates of obesity found in many developing countries today. I found several reasons for why obesity has sky rocketed in the global south, finding that most trends leading to obesity derived from the western lifestyle. One significant change between the western world and the developing world is that for the global south the transition to industrialization and development happened at a much faster pace. The sudden modernization has in many places led to extreme changes in behavior and lifestyle. The one trend that reoccured in most developing countries and had the highest effect on obesity rates was the infiltration of food products, mostly from western food corporations. I look at some specific practices made by companies like Nestle and others, as well as looking at behavioral changes in some of the worst hit areas like the Pacific Island nations.

Mainstreaming of HIV/AIDS interventions in the workplaces is among the major strategies used to improve and sustain effective responses against the epidemic in the institutions and sectors. This interesting book is highly recommended for those people, organizations, agencies, sectors working against HIV&AIDS in any workplaces anywhere.
