A woman's first birth is one of the most significant events in her life. In many parts of Ethiopia the median age at first birth was too young (below 18). This cross-sectional survey revealed that, the median age at giving the first birth in Wolkite town was 19 years of age. The logistic regression statistic indicated that age at first marriage, age at first sex, contraceptive use and education exhibited statistically significant impact on the mothers’ age at giving the first birth. Correspondingly, the chi-square test had also shown that, age at marriage, age at first sex, contraceptive use, education and work status of the women in Welkite town had a significant (p>0.001) relationship with the age at giving the first birth.Variation in age at first sexual intercourse, marriage, education, and the extent of contraception are found to be the determinant factor on the age of women at first birth. It therefore, girl’s enrolment at higher education and target family planning programs.

Figures of Natality: Reading the Political in the Age of Goethe

10455 руб.
Figures of Natality reads metaphors and narratives of birth in the age of Goethe (1770-1832) as indicators of the new, the unexpected, and the revolutionary. Using Hannah Arendt’s concept of natality, Joseph O’Neil argues that Lessing, Goethe, and Kleist see birth as challenging paradigms of Romanticism as well as of Enlightenment, resisting the assimilation of the political to economics, science, or morality. They choose instead to preserve the conflicts and tensions at the heart of social, political, and poetic revolutions. In a historical reading, these tensions evolve from the idea of revolution as Arendt reads it in British North America to the social and economic questions that shape the French Revolution, culminating in a consideration of the culture of the modern republic as such. Alongside this geopolitical evolution, the ways of representing the political change, too, moving from the new as revolutionary eruption to economic metaphors of birth. More pressing still is the question of revolutionary subjectivity and political agency, and Lessing, Goethe, and Kleist have an answer that is remarkably close to that of Walter Benjamin, as that “secret index” through which each past age is “pointed toward redemption.” Figures of Natality uncovers this index at the heart of scenes and products of birth in the age of Goethe.

Dental Age Estimation

Age estimation is a current focus of forensic research. The assessment of age is useful in planning orthodontic and pedodontic treatment, in pediatric endocrinology, anthropology, archaeology, paleodontology, clinical dentistry, forensic medicine and forensic odontology. Its use is increasing in both civil and criminal proceedings and it also aids in the identification of age at death of a deceased individual in mass disasters and natural calamities. Age estimation is also providing valuable information when birth date is lacking or doubted as in people who provide inaccurate details of ages as in case of illegal immigrants. In certain communities the chronological age of living people bears significant importance regarding employment, marriage and social benefits. In this book an attempt has been made to present the various dental age estimation methods in adults published up to day. The approaches, the advantages and disadvantages of each technique are discussed.

A total of three (3) experiments were conducted to study the effect of age at castration, type of birth and sex on the growth performance of Savanna Brown goats semi-intensively managed. Two experiments (one and two) were designed to observe the pre-weaning and post-weaning effect of age at castration, type of birth and sex on the growth performance of the animals. A third experiment was also designed to study post weaning effect of age at castration, type of birth and sex on the growth performance of Savanna Brown goats under feedlot management. Each experiment lasted for 12 weeks. In the first and second experiments, forty eight (48) Savanna Brown goats (kids) aged between 2 - 8 weeks were used for this study. The goats were randomly allocated to 12 treatments (T1- T12) comprising of 2 replicates with 2 goats per replicate. T1 –T8 were goats castrated at ages 2,4, 6,and 8 weeks respectively and T9 and T10 and T11 and T12 comprised of 8 entire males and 8 females respectively. The animals were sourced from within Niger state. The dates of birth of the animals were recorded and the weight of the animals were taken within 24 hours after birth.

Two cohort studies conducted in Ribeirao Preto (RP), SP and Sao Luis (SL), MA, performed a complete assessment of the participating children both at birth (1994 in RP and 1997 in SL) and at school age, with the inclusion of psychological evaluation at the second time point. The wealth of data obtained permitted the study of the association between birth conditions and psychological development at school age. Particularly interesting among the aspects investigated were the presence of prolonged non-nutritive sucking habits and the occurrence of emotional and behavioral problems. Birth data were collected using standardized questionnaires applied to the puerperae soon after delivery, measurement of anthropometric parameters of the newborns, and demographic and socioeconomic information. The data collected again in RP and SL at school age referred to PNNSH, considered to be prolonged when they lasted 36 months or more, and to nutritive sucking habits (use of a bottle, sleeping with a bottle, breast-feeding), and to psychological tests for the evaluation of affective and behavioral performance based on the application of the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ).

This book presents a study to determine the prevalence and associated factors for short birth spacing among Malay women who delivered at Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM), Malaysia. A cross- sectional study was conducted on 355 Malay women and their husbands in 2005. Short birth spacing refers to a birth spacing of less than 24 months. The study found a median duration of birth spacing of 26 months and the prevalence of short birth spacing was 45.1%. Majority of the women and husbands had poor knowledge on family planning. In addition, 69.0% of the women and 74.9% of the husbands had unsatisfactory attitude towards family planning. The significant associated factors for short birth spacing were women''s age, parity, breastfeeding duration, history of contraception and history of abortion between second last and the last delivery. Women with higher parity, those who breastfed their second last baby for less than one year duration and those not using contraception were more likely to have short birth spacing. Increase age and history of abortion were less likely to have short birth spacing.

The present study attempts to understand the association between mother''s anaemic condition and its impact on pregnancy outcomes and nutritional status of children in north-eastern states of India. The study has used data of third round of National Family Health Survey (NFHS-3) which is conducted during 2005-06. NFHS-3 collected information from a nationally representative sample of households, women age 15-49 and men age 15-54 in all 29 states. The outcome variables are pregnancy outcome (comprised with preterm delivery and low birth weight, and experience of termination) and nutritional status (comprised with underweight, stunting, and wasting). The key explanatory variable is level of anaemia (categorized into three categories, severe/moderate/mild). Bi-variate and multivariate analysis is used to examine the impact of anaemia level on selected outcome variables. Findings show that preterm delivery or premature birth is crucial outcome seen among anaemic mothers, and the study shows a U-shaped relationship between maternal haemoglobin concentration and preterm delivery, low weight of birth, and experience of preterm delivery in North-east India.

Understanding Work in the Age of Information

Revision with unchanged content. Understanding Work in the Age of Information tells a compelling story about Finland, one of the most advanced information societies in the world. In addition to discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the Finnish model of an information society, the author offers a long-awaited critical perspective on knowledge work, a concept that has attracted economists and management theorists since the 1960s. Although the discourse on knowledge work has resurfaced as a fashionable topic in recent years, several gaps still remain in the current literature. One of these is the lack of sociologically oriented analysis. The rise of knowledge work is not only an economic or managerial issue-it reflects a major social and cultural transformation comparable to, yet at the same time very different from, the Industrial Revolution. Written with precision and with clarity, Understanding Work in the Age of Information is an essential and original contribution to information society and organization studies and will be welcomed by readers interested in the social side of technological change.

The local goat of Assam is a dwarf variety single or multicolored non-descript species. Its economic importance lies on its prolificacy, production of high quality meat and skin. The present study was conducted on twenty four healthy female Assam local goats from birth to six months of age including one control group. They were divided into eight age groups consisting of three animals in each group. The number of visible small Graafian follicles decreased but medium and large Graafian follicles increased with the advancement of age. Maximum number of oocytes recovered from medium types of follicles followed by recovery from large and small types. Most of the oocytes recovered from small and medium types of follicles were of A type whereas from large types were of C and N types. The mean diameter of all types of follicles, and their oocytes and nuclei increased with the advancement of age. The higher values in respect of physiological and histomorphological aspects, as recorded in the higher age groups (5 to 6 months) could be utilized for induction of puberty and practiced in E.T.T. in this species of goat.

Anemia in Pregnancy

4839 руб.
Anemia is one of the commonest medical disorders. It is a pathological condition in which the oxygen carrying capacity of red blood cells is insufficient to meet the body’s needs. Nutritional anemia is the most important cause of maternal anemia. Anemia during pregnancy has been reported to increase the risk of small-for-gestational-age birth and low birth weight infants. Strong evidence also exists for an association between maternal anemia and preterm birth and premature rupture of membranes. Moreover, women who suffer from anemia during pregnancy are more liable to have heavy bleeding at the time of birth. Severe anemia may weaken uterine muscle, contributing to postpartum hemorrhage and subsequent maternal mortality. Appropriate preconception evaluation and antenatal follow up, together with iron supplementation programs should be implemented to minimize the prevalence of anemia and its adverse maternal and fetal effects.

The study was to investigate the utility of a prototypic technological tool, the CIDS, to project the chosen community into the Information Age. Therefore it proposed to investigate the existing local knowledge and information needs of a community and classifying them into a retrievable form of knowledge, designing a model CIDS and trialling it. In the process the potential of CIDS for community development and consequent community empowerment were assessed and a refined model CIDS developed. The purpose behind the study is to link Information Technology (IT), as the new tool guarding the entrance to the Information Age, with the current level of community development and community empowerment in the CLCs. The central place of Information, and hence of CIDS, was therefore critical to the outcomes of this study. Several concepts in the Research Questions needed defining in terms of how they were studied. Hence ‘community', ‘community development', ‘empowerment', ‘community empowerment' and ‘information' were defined. Their relevance to the circumstances existing in Thailand were explained and then applied to the microcosm of the four provinces which comprise the ICN.

Anti-infective drugs are among the most used medications during pregnancy. Gestational infections are related to some adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as preterm birth and infants born small for their gestational age (SGA), conditions associated with an increased risk of mortality and long-term morbidity. Given its health impacts, prompt management and treatment of these infections are warranted. However, there is some controversy on the use of anti-infective drugs to prevent adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as preterm birth. Furthermore, there is growing concern regarding the independent effects that these drugs can have on gestational outcomes when treatment of maternal infections is instituted. This book presents the results of 4 large population-based studies aimed to investigate the gestational use of anti-infective drugs during pregnancy, its prevalence, predictors and the risk of preterm birth and SGA.

Gestational Age and Loss of Maternal Measles Antibodies in Infants

4839 руб.
Maternal measles antibodies (MMA) are actively transferred in mother-infant pairs during third trimester of pregnancy. Gestational age (GA) affects the levels of MMA such that longer GA may result in infants starting out with high levels of MMA. To determine the influence of GA on the loss of MMA of newborn infants in North-Eastern, Nigeria, a prospective study was conducted on newborn infants at Maiduguri. Sera were collected at birth and at six months of age. Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to measure MMA while GA was determined using the last menstrual period, ultrasound scan reports and the Dubowitz criteria. Seventeen (89.5 %) preterm, 43 (95.6 %) term and 14 (100 %) postterm had protective levels of MMA at birth. Two (10.5 %) preterm, nine (20.0%) term and two (14.3 %) postterm had protective MMA at six months of age. Significant decline of mean MMA levels was seen in these infants at six months of age (p = 0.005), which was independent of their GA. These infants may be prone to measles at an earlier age (less than six months). Therefore, the current recommendation of measles immunization to infants at nine months of age may require reconsideration.

The Determinants of Birth Interval in Rural Ethiopia

4839 руб.
The analysis of birth intervals explicitly recognizes the distinct renewable nature of the fertility process. It considers the progression from one birth to the next during a woman’s reproductive life. Birth spacing among women is affected by several factors and as a result for some women a birth interval is too short; for some women the interval is too long; and for other women it is just right. Hence birth intervals play a major role on childbearing and receive attention in the study of human fertility. Wider birth interval has several benefits. Longer gap between births allows a mother more time to recover from pregnancy and delivery; the next pregnancy and birth are more likely to be at full conception and growth; there is less competition between existing children for breastfeeding, food, nutrition, the mother’s time, and other resources. Therefore, Birth Interval analysis undoubtedly provides useful information on reproduction and family formation.

Nowadays it is generally accepted that businesses and enterprises are centered around information exchange, if they want to keep up the pace with the rapid changes and developments, they have to adapt to the new challenges of the Information Age. Accordingly, business information systems have been created with the purpose of offering effective help to the management and the employees of companies, making them able to cope with the increased burden of administration as well as with the responsibility of making strategic decisions. This study deals with the number of issues related to the implementation of business information systems, the problems encountered during their implementation, the expenditure on the development of a company's information technology infrastructure and the relative importance of information technology within the broader structure of an economic organization. Finally, it reveals that the inability of using properly designed information systems may result in damaging the operational effectiveness of companies and an irreversible loss of their competitiveness.

'The Fire Falls in Africa' is the remarkable history of not only a church denomination, but the birth of Pentecost on the continent of Africa. Born in the grubby back streets of Doornfontein, Johannesburg, the Apostolic Faith Mission grew to be the largest Pentecostal denomination in Southern Africa. Its history is full of heroics, sacrifice, pain and tears. From the early days of persecution from other churches to the glorious days of growth and expansion, through the pain and disgrace of Apartheid to unification, the AFM has never wavered from spreading the Good News that Jesus Christ is the Savior, Healer, Sanctifier, and Baptizer in the Spirit. Its history sometimes reads like a grand adventure, with men and women giving everything - including their lives - to bring the Pentecostal message to every nation.

This Monograph is focused on understanding the frequency and distribution of risk factors for adverse birth outcomes and is based on three studies carried out in Zimbabwe. In chapter 2, we assessed delivery patterns and birth outcomes over a one-year period from October 1997 to September 1998 at Harare Maternity Hospital. In chapter 3 we evaluated the Dubowitz and Ballard methods of estimating gestational age in 364 African newborn infants from October to December 1999. We also assessed the utility of using birth weight-adjusted scales. In chapter 4 we assessed risk factors for pre-term birth, pre-term labor and premature rupture of membranes from March to June 1999. This Monograph provides a general picture of the frequency and distribution of basic demographic and reproductive risk factors for poor birth outcomes. The studies have advanced our knowledge of the frequency and distributions of adverse birth outcomes and have also broadened our knowledge of their risk factors. We were able to demonstrate the feasibility of carrying out research in a resource constrained environment and identify the areas, which require future attention.

Forest are not only trees and wildlife, Forests play an important and most vital role for the survival of humanity from its birth to till death, but we are giving step motherly treatment to our Forests. So before it is too late or situation reaches beyond our control, we must be serious to save mother earth via protecting Forests. Wildfires is an uncontrolled fire that occurs in the wilderness, other names such as brush fire, bush fire, grass fire, hills fire, Forest fires, peat fire, vegetation fire and wild land fire may be used to describe the same phenomenon. Also, there is widespread concern about the loss of biodiversity, effects on atmospheric chemistry, and increase in surface Alberto and water runoff due to biomass burning. In addition to the environmental impacts of fire, the annual economic losses resulting from fire in India are estimated to be about Rs 440 crores. Most forest fires in India are anthropological and are caused, for example, the shifting cultivating practices, controlled burning, deforestation and firewood burning. The conventional method of the fire prevention and detection include an elaborate network of fire lines , fires watch towers, block lines etc.

Birth registration in developing countries, Tanzania in particular is still low with higher intensity in rural compared to urban areas. this book examines the factors leading to low birth registration in Chamwino district in the central part of Tanzania. The factors base on the theories of rights of a child as established by the United Nation's Convection (1989) where every child need to have birth certificate in which birth registration is a pre-requisit. Birth registration simplify the procedures of getting a passport, opening a bank account, obtaining credit, voting or voted as a political figure, joining primary school and higher education institutions as well as finding employment within or outside the country. Therefore, the book has both theoretical and imperical factors leading to low birth registration among developing countries as well as the way forward toward addressing the issue.

The determination of fish age and growth of Nemiplerus japonicus is fundamental in fisheries biology population studies. Age studies can furnish other basic data such as stock age structure, age at first maturity, spawning frequency, individual and stock responses to changes in the habitat, recruitment success, etc. Age and growth data also permit the determination of population changes due to fishing rates. Because a scale holds the growth history of the fish, it can also be used to determine length at all ages up to the current one. The present study results were showed that the fishes of ages 1, 1+, 2, 2+, 3, 3+, and 4, when the age level was increased, the length also increases but fish weight remains stable during ages 1+ and 2 and increase is seen only after age 3. The age of fish may be determined by various methods depending upon their suitability to the species concerned. In certain cases more than one method may be employed chiefly to verify the results obtained by the other. Overall the fish age and growth study is giving valuable information of fish populations.

Age at first marriage has been considered as a leading factor for public policy because of its impact on fertility and population growth. It is well known that population growth depends primarily on two factors, fertility and mortality, and fertility depends considerably on the age at which men and women marry.Therefore the study of age at first marriage in any population is of immense important due to its strong association with social, economic and demographic change in population. Thus, by utilizing all the three round of National Family Health Survey(NFHS) data,the present study attempts to capture the levels,trends and determinants of age at first marriage in India and also tries to study the age at first marriage among men. Results shows that from NFHS-1 to NFHS-3, the proportion of ever married males age 10-29 has decreased from 27 percent to 21 percent and among females it has decreased from 52 percent to 22 percent.The proportion of ever married population in young age group in states Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan is quite large. Among the progressive birth cohorts, rate of increase in age at first marriage is low than the progressive marriage cohort.

A building fire is dynamic. A continually changing hostile fire environment influences time relationships that affect fire defenses and risks to people and building functions. The fire and fire defenses in each building interact with different sequences and distinct ways. Risks are characterized by the building's performance. Significantly updated and restructured new edition Fire Performance Analysis for Buildings, 2nd Edition organizes the complex interactions into an analytical framework to evaluate any building - at any location - built under any regulatory jurisdiction or era. Systematic, logical procedures evaluate individual component behavior and integrate results to understand holistic performance. The Interactive Performance Information (IPI) chart structures complex time-related interactions among the fire, fire defenses, and associated risks. Quantification uses state-of-the-art deterministic methods of fire safety engineering and fire science. Managing uncertainty is specifically addressed. Key features: Emphasizes fire performance analysis for new or existing buildings. Augments fire dynamics calculation methods with qualitative methods to form a more complete understanding of the effects of hostile fire characteristics on building performance. Describes fire ground operations for engineers with no fire service experience. An analysis evaluates ways the site and building design help or hinder manual fire suppression. Establishes a transition from traditional structural requirements to modern calculation based structural analysis and design for fire conditions. Structural concepts are described for non-structural engineers to enable the roles of each profession to be integrated into comprehensive performance evaluations. Addresses techniques of managing uncertainty to improve understanding and communication with professionals of other disciplines. Describes methods of risk management using information from the building's performance analysis. Fire Performance Analysis for Buildings, 2nd Edition has been completely restructured around a performance based framework. Applications integrate traditional fire defenses with fire science and engineering to combine component performance with holistic performance.
