work of the WIDF.” Efforts should be made to ensure that the WIDF concentrated purely on women’s issues, and did not duplicate the work of the World Peace Council or the World Council of Trade Unions. Lange reassured her audience that this focus on “women’s work” would not lead inevitably to the “depoliticization” of the WIDF. In particular, she argued, the socialist countries should help the WIDF extend its influence in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The head of the international department of the CPSU Central Committee declared that the Congress should go further than the 1973 Moscow World Congress of the Forces of Peace in reaching out to a broader range of potential collaborators, for example, members of the International Council of Social Democratic Women, or even the Catholic women’s movement – “if it advances our interests.” Moreover, the Soviet representative emphasized the importance of winning the UN as a “partner” and maintaining a “flexible” approach to ensure that “our other partners feel equally treated,” in the interests of strengthening international cooperation. He emphasized that the UN had adopted the IWY themes of equality, development and peace “on our initiative and not on the initiative of our opponents.”

of dermatological nursing at the highest international levels. The summit group also recognised the need to address early on the governance arrangements, the importance of working groups, stepping up ways of improving international communications using technology, refining web presence and using new methods such as social networking to reach out to dermatological nurses worldwide who support its aims. There was support for the new Board to be comprised of representatives from each dermatology nursing organisation, supplemented with other dermatology nursing leaders. The group wished to continue staging the World Congress nursing meeting.

World Congress Integrative Medicine & Health 2017: Part one

The World Health Organization has called upon states to regulate practitioners of traditional and complementary medicine (TCAM) sys- tems and therapies, and an increasing number of jurisdictions are taking steps to do so. However, to date, scholarship that addresses the distinct complexities of TCAM professional regulation has been scant. The objectives of this project were: 1) To explore the factors that distinguish TCAM professional regulation from that of biomed- ical health providers; and 2) to develop a public interest framework to guide TCAM professional regulation. Data collection included an extensive review of literatures reporting various jurisdictions" ap- proaches to and experiences with regulating TCAM providers; and re- analysis of our research team"s fifteen-year study of TCAM professionalization in Ontario, Canada which has included a multiple sets of qualitative interviews with front line TCAM practitioners and leaders, as well as a survey of all Chinese medicine, naturopathy and homeopathy practitioners in the Province (n = 1047). We found sev- eral features that differentiate TCAM professional regulation from that of biomedical professionals, including: contrasting epistemic frameworks and conceptualizations of evidence; traditional medi- cine"s concurrent clinical and cultural importance; the internal diver- sity of traditional health care systems; and historically-situated, differential power relations between TCAM and biomedicine. Apply- ing critical theories of the professions as well as post-coloniality, we propose a principle-based framework for guiding TCAM professional regulation across jurisdictions. Underpinned by the principle of regu- latory equity, our framework prioritizes traditional knowledge protec- tion alongside patient safety, quality of care, and accessibility. We discuss how these principles may be diversely interpreted and ap- plied across contexts, with respect to such specific issues as: profes- sional standards, linguistic regulatory requirements, and biomedical professionals" increasing adoption of TCAM practices.

Menstrual period is one of the girls puberty stages, that any change can spite a woman's sex life to natural fertility or infertility. Dysmenorrhea is a kind of pelvic pain that 50-90% of reproductive women experience during their life. It is the greatest cause of lost working and school days among young women and decrease quality of life. There is a great trend to use Traditional Medicine recommendations and prescribes in the world. Therefore searching the literatures and finding common points in Traditional Medicine and Gynecology is necessary. In this way, opening up new avenues in the treatment and control of dysmenorrhea, possibly avoid wasting time and communitys investment and enhance the quality of life of women. There are many management line for women in the TPM literatures and has been interest for physicians throughout the history, but among menstrual changes, dysmenorrhea is not the earliest concern. While searching the ancient PM texts during 9th -19th AD, there are many overlapping conditions, which may mimic to this disorder, there is not any particular terms and definitions for dysmenorrhea and it is mentioned in Persian Medicine literature under different names such as Oja-e Rahem (Uterus pain), Osr-o Tams (dysmenorrhea) and Oja-e Zahr (back pain). First explanation of dysmenorrhea was found in the Al-Zahrawis masterpieces Al-tasrif in detail. It can be helpful to test this suggestions as ideas for clinical researches. Key words: Dysmenorrhea- Al-Zahrawi- Menstruation- Traditional Persian Medicine.

'Love of God, Love of Neighbour': is this really an evangelical missiology?

'Love of God, Love of Neighbour': is this really an evangelical missiology?

The third World Congress gathered 4,200 evangelical church and mission leaders in Cape Town from 16 th -25 th October, 2010. Sadly, repeating the 1974 experience, there were no delegates from mainland China although it still probably ranks as one of the most globally representative of the Congresses. This was probably not always reflected in the plenary and platform presentations but small table groups met and were given some scope for interaction with the Congress themes. The drafting of the second half of the Cape Town Commitment was a result of two chief sources. Firstly, the International Deputy Directors (IDDs) each convened a regional consultation identifying the chief challenges facing the churches in their region. Six key issues emerged and these frame the Call to Action. Secondly, discussion at the Congress was gathered by a listening group and then edited together into appropriate sections of the Call to Action.

When it came time for a vote of IFOAM delegates, the 2011 Organic World Congress heading eastward was a forgone conclusion. There were three competing delegations, each of them from Asia. Korea, Taiwan and Negros Island, the Philippines, were the contenders for the 2011 Organic World Congress. The island of Negros was outgunned and outspent on all fronts. Taiwan and Korea were seriously competitive contenders for the vote in the medieval town of Vignola in Italy. Both these bidders presented well

The International College of Psychosomatic Medicine – a personal history

The 23rd World Congress, held in Glasgow, Scotland, in 2015, was particularly satisfying for me, and a turning point, with several firsts for ICPM. Many cities, conven- tion centers and other venues compete for conferences and group meetings and I had begun to meet with many representatives from various venues several years before. Glasgow had indicated that there was a healthcare pro- fessional that might be interested in hosting our Con- gress there in 2015. Indeed, a bid was submitted and we had competitive bidding for the first time in my mem- ory. Previously, the host organizer was found by word of mouth, usually being an officer of ICPM, and while most congresses were successful, there were mixed results. The submitted bid was more professional than any we had previously seen, and we were very impressed by the support promised by the Glasgow and Scotland visitor industry. The host organizer, Mike Gow, is a dentist, an- other first for ICPM and an advance for the mission of psychosomatic medicine. The Congress turned out to be very successful scientifically, financially and socially. At- tendance by dentists was significant. There were excel- lent scientific presentations that included dental-related topics such as temporomandibular disorder and dental hypnosis.

Children's Rights: Building From a Sense of Fairness. An Interview with Landon Pearson

Children's Rights: Building From a Sense of Fairness. An Interview with Landon Pearson

describe virtually every issue related to children. I was privileged to participate in several UN sponsored conferences and gatherings that took place during that time during which “agreed upon” (as we called it) language was being negotiated among all the nations of the world. I was a delegate to the First World Summit on Children in 1990, the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995, the first World Congress on the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in Stockholm in 1996, the International Conference on Child Labour in Oslo, 1997, the Winnipeg Conference on War-Affected Children in 2000 and, as the personal representative of Prime Minister Jean Chretien to all the meetings related to the Special Session on Children. At these meetings, I could first observe and later actively engage in the negotiations. It was a remarkable procedure, this gradual evolution of consensual language that put flesh on the Convention and provided an increasingly satisfactory framework for the emotions of people outraged by the injustices inflicted on children everywhere as well as ideas of what they could do that would be respectful of everyone’s rights. Reflecting on this collective crafting of language puts me in mind of the King James Bible which was the product of a committee of clerics who rewrote the existing English translation so that it would be both beautiful and more accessible to the common reader. I wouldn’t pretend that the Convention is beautiful but, thanks to the

Construction of the Transreal Numbers and Algebraic Transfields

Construction of the Transreal Numbers and Algebraic Transfields

In the submitted paper we show that there are universal possible worlds which have the topological property that they can access every world in sequences of worlds that comes arbitrarily close to every possible world. Our method of proof is to establish the space of all possible worlds as a transvector space and to prove certain algebraic and topological properties of that space. We begin by making R T a trans-Boolean logic, by defining suitable functions ¬, ∨ and ∧, and prove that the transreal numbers do model classical, fuzzy and a particular paraconsistent logic by establishing homomorphisms between these logics and trans-Boolean logic. Negative infinity models the classical truth value False and positive infinity models the classical truth value True. The real numbers (in the range from zero to one) model fuzzy values. Negative values are more False than True, positive values are more True than False and zero is equally False and True. Zero models the dialeathic value that has equal degrees of both falsehood and truthfulness. Nullity models gap values that are neither False nor True and which, more generally, have no degree of falsehood or truthfulness. Thus we can model the semantic values of many logics with algebraic structures inspired by the transreals.

Advances in the prevention of oral disease; the role of the International Association for Dental Research

Advances in the prevention of oral disease; the role of the International Association for Dental Research

Throughout the history of IADR, the Journal of Dental Research has supported the mission of the organisation through publishing high quality dental research, the impact of JDR is clear with an impact factor of 3.826, the second highest of all 83 dental journals. The recent publication of the Clinical supplements, periodic publi- cation of Advances in Dental Research and the dissemi- nation of the Global Research Update newsletter further support the dissemination of research including that in prevention of oral diseases. Most recently IADR has added the use of PodCasts to its publication strategy with the launch of its first PodCast. In this podcast we hear Harold Slavkin speaking about his JDR paper [11] From Phenotype to Genotype, Enter Genomics and Transformation of Primary Health Care around the World. [12]. Dr Slavkin heralds “ a new era using human and microbial whole-genome sequencing to make signif- icant healthcare decisions as to risk, stratification of patients, diagnosis, treatments, and outcomes ” . He chal- lenges us to “ invest in genomics to enhance clinical oral health care in the 21st century for all people"; he also encourages us to revisit Interprofessional Education and health teams (IPE) with the goal of improving “the depth, breadth, and quality of comprehensive and coor- dinated health care across the lifespan.”

Prevalence and Associated Factors of Diabetes Mellitus in Benin

Prevalence and Associated Factors of Diabetes Mellitus in Benin

Background: Data on diabetes mellitus in general population in Benin is scarce. This study aimed therefore to assess prevalence and risk factors of diabetes mellitus in Benin. Methods: The study consisted of a cross-sectional survey, using the World Health Organisation (WHO)’s instrument for stepwise surveillance (STEPS) of non-communicable diseases risk factors. A five-stage random sample of 25 to 64 years old male and female adults living in Benin participated in structured in- terviews and their size, weight and blood pressure were measured according to standardized procedures. Glycaemia was measured using ACCUTREND ® test strips for capillary blood glucose.

Is Your Farm Organic? Building Consumer Relationships

Is Your Farm Organic? Building Consumer Relationships

The world food system is broken, the most prosperous nations are experiencing epidemics related to what they eat, fresh produce is not available for some people, and farmers growing organic food face many challenges within systems that don’t always support them. This presentation puts a lens on the United States food system, farmers who grow organic food, and what needs to happen in order to transform the food system. The central thesis is that the relationship between the farmer and the consumer is a key component of the solution. A prime opportunity for contact and building these

VIII World Rett Syndrome Congress & Symposium of rare diseases, Kazan, Russia

VIII World Rett Syndrome Congress & Symposium of rare diseases, Kazan, Russia

The attractiveness of the World Congresses on RTT evi- dences that RTT is a major focus of current biomedical research and represents a well-studied disease. The con- gress proceedings (see Additional file 1) further confirm this statement. Actually, there is a more or less clear view of how successful therapeutic interventions in this presumably incurable disease can be developed. This view is certainly the result of an extensive body of re- search. RTT studies have significantly contributed to rare disease research, as a whole. RTT research is consist- ently shown to be relevant to a broad spectrum of bio- medical areas [10, 12, 18, 20, 22, 25, 40–43]. Taking a simple look at the number of articles dedicated to RTT in the most popular scientific databases (i.e. PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science etc.) depicts that a body of RTT research is larger than an average research body dedicated to a genetic disease with a similar incidence. Undoubtedly, this is the result of exceptional and long-standing activity of RTT associations around the world. These associations have made a significant stimu- lation and contribution to RTT research, which has re- sulted to the aforementioned achievements. Thus, one can conclude the dissemination of RTT associations’ ex- perience is important for international research and clin- ical community of rare disease specialists. The next (9th) World RTT Congress will be held on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia on the 30th of September until the 3rd of October 2020.

Real Time Industrial Monitoring & Automatic Controlling using HTTP Protocol

GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) is a digital mobile telephone system that is widely used in Europe and other parts of the world. GSM uses a variation of Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) and is the most widely used of the three digital wireless telephone technologies (TDMA, GSM, and CDMA). GSM digitizes and compresses data, then sends it down a channel with two other streams of user data, each in its own time slot. It operates at either the 900 MHz or 1,800 MHz frequency band. It supports voice calls and data transfer speeds of up to 9.6 kbit/s, together with the transmission of SMS (Short Message Service). 4) LM35 Temperature Sensor : The LM35 arrangement are exactness coordinated circuit temperature gadgets with a yield voltage
