Beginning April 10, Hawai‘i artist and co-lead director of international street art celebration POW! WOW! Kamea Hadar will bring his artistic vision to the exterior of an O‘ahu affordable housing building. Inspired by the non-instrument Polynesian voyaging canoe Hōkūle‘a’s worldwide voyage and the Pacific Development Group’s commitment to sustainability, Hadar will paint a 14-story mural of Hawai‘i model Mahina Garcia as the Hawaiian moon goddess Hina. WHO: Kamea Hadar is a Hawai‘i-based artist who studied art in Paris, Madrid, and Tel Aviv. He is co-lead director of POW! WOW!, an annual week-long street art event founded in 2010, which brings together over a hundred local and international artists to create murals and other forms of art. Centered in the O‘ahu neighborhood of Kaka‘ako, POW! WOW! has expanded to include Taiwan, Israel, New Zealand, Japan, and other international cities. WHAT: During the month of April, Kamea Hadar will paint his largest mural to date, a representation of the Hawaiian moon goddess, Hina, on the side of an O‘ahu affordable housing development. The 165-foot tall depiction of Hina will be the state’s largest portrait mural and is inspired by Hōkūle‘a and Mālama Honua, the Hawaiian voyaging canoe's three-and-a-half year around-the-world voyage. WHY: The 14-story affordable housing unit that looks out onto Pearl Harbor was recently refurbished by Pacific Development Group with LEED Gold Certification. Hina was said to guide Polynesian voyagers with the moon and stars and has physical forms on sea and on land. She connects with Hōkūleʻa not only for her role in voyaging, but also with Mālama Honua’s and Pacific Development Group's message of, “caring for our Island Earth.” WHEN: Painting to take place from April 10th-May 10th For more information about the mural and sponsors, please click the link here.

Ticked Off! Here's What You Need To Know About Lyme Disease Fun times, tan lines, and the threat of tick-borne diseases. Apparently, this is what summer has got in store for us this year. As if blacklegged ticks in the country aren't already teeming with enough pathogens to make us go crazy, there's a new tick infection to add to the list — Powassan virus. Rumor has it, it's even worse than Lyme disease. Powassan or POW virus is a type of RNA flavivirus. It was first identified in Powassan, Ontario in 1958, thus its name. Similar to other mosquito- and tick-borne diseases — such as Lyme disease, West Nile, St. Louis encephalitis, and tick-borne encephalitis viruses — the infection is passed onto humans once they're bitten by the host of the virus. In the United States, there are currently two types of POW virus: • Lineage 1 POW virus — This type is associated with Ixodes cookei or Ixodes marxi ticks, which seldom bite humans. • Lineage 2 POW virus — Otherwise known as the deer tick virus, this type is linked to Ixodes scapularis ticks, the primary vector of Lyme disease, human anaplasmosis, and babesiosis. Over the last decade, there have been approximately 75 confirmed cases of POW virus disease reported to the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention. Although rare compared with other tick-borne diseases that are more prevalent and widespread in most parts of the United States, Powassan virus is stealthier and potentially fatal. Dr. Jennifer Lyons, chief of the Division of Neurological Infections and Inflammatory Diseases at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, cautions that almost anyone is at risk of getting Powassan, particularly newborns, the middle-aged, the elderly, and the immunocompromised. "About 15% of patients who are infected and have symptoms are not going survive. Of the survivors, at least 50% will have long-term neurological damage that is not going to resolve," Lyons, who is also an assistant professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, told CNN. Unfortunately, most people who become infected with Powassan virus hardly ever show any signs, except for common flu-like symptoms, including fever, headache, vomiting, and seizures. The POW virus can reach the central nervous system and cause encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) and meningitis (inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord), according to the CDC. What's worse is that almost half of Powassan virus survivors are left with permanent neurological problems, such as recurrent headaches, muscle wasting, and memory decline, after a long and arduous battle with the infection. As of now, there is no definitive data as to how fast and how far the Powassan virus has spread, although new reported cases mostly come from the Northeast and northern areas of the Midwest — including Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and New York. The current CDC data are based on people who developed severe disease from the infection. "The bottom line is that we should be very scared of it because nobody is safe from it. And it could be that it is emerging and will explode over the next few years," Lyons warned. © 2017 Tech Times, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.

MIAMI (April 17, 2017) – Jerry Blanton has been writing since he learned what letters stood for. Now, known for his vast experience writing books, Blanton was approached with a novel suggestion. With an interest in the idea and upon spending a significant amount of time researching the history of World War II, the author penned a powerful historical novel. “Nightmare Enemy, Dream Friend” chronicles the life of a German medical student who becomes a U-boat captain during World War II. Readers will be captivated as the book begins in a POW camp in Texas where the main character, Luther Weitgucker, has been incarcerated until World War II ends. Questions are answered and drama is heightened as the book flashes back to the beginning of the war. The author shares a different perspective on the amply documented war, reflecting on what it means to serve and do good during times of trouble, as the book portrays a man who does his best to keep his faith while waging a war he does not believe in. “Nightmare Enemy, Dream Friend” will appeal to a variety of readers as it capitalizes on action scenes, love interests and unique viewpoints of the Nazi era, while weaving biblical quotes and Christian references into the narrative. “Nightmare Enemy, Dream Friend” By: Jerry Blanton ISBN: 978-1-5320-0559-6 (sc); 978-1-5320-0561-9 (hc); 978-1-5320-0560-2 (e) Available on iUniverse, Amazon and Barnes and Noble About the author Jerry Blanton has taught high school English, managed a bookstore, served as an academic dean, and worked as a copywriter, proofreader, English professor, and writer. He has written more than 20 books that include mysteries, sci-fi novels, and poetry collections. Jerry currently resides in Homestead, Florida.

Summary Racial and ethnic variables are common in research on variation in bone density. This literature review describes some of the common flaws associated with the use of these variables and provides some suggestions for how bone density research may be able to better document and address skeletal health disparities. Introduction Racial/ethnic differences in bone density have been commonly documented in the research literature. While effective identification of the specific factors underlying these trends might go a long way in informing treatment and screening for osteoporosis, this would require careful consideration of exactly what these variables are capturing. However, the basis and implications of what racial/ethnic variables represent have not carefully been examined in bone density research. Methods For this paper, we systematically reviewed 55 articles that included bone density and race/ethnicity as key variables. Our analysis reveals that racial/ethnic terminology in these articles is highly variable, and discussion of how race/ethnicity is determined is often vague and idiosyncratic. Racial/ethnic variables are being used for a wide range of analytical purposes in statistical tests, which may not be appropriate for such a complex and poorly defined variable. Results Many articles attribute racial/ethnic differences in bone mass/bone density to genetic causes, although few studies actually examine genetic data. Conclusion This analysis indicates that more rigorous examination of what race/ethnicity actually captures, more careful definitions of group labels and the procedures for assigning them, and attention to the limitations of how such variables can reliably be used in data analyses is needed to help address the problems and issues outlined in this review. © International Osteoporosis Foundation and National Osteoporosis Foundation 2010.

The Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük, Turkey (7400-5600 cal BC) is widely acknowledged for its role in the study of early farming communities. To better understand the social and community structure of this setting, an intracemetery biological distance analysis was conducted. Metric and nonmetric observations were recorded in both deciduous and permanent dentitions (n = 266) to explore phenotypic patterning of individuals interred within individual buildings. Specifically, this study tests the hypothesis that individuals within houses and house groupings represent family units and the social structure of Çatalhöyük was largely biological-kin based. Multivariate and univariate statistical procedures were applied to phenotypic dental data. Results indicate that inclusion for interment within a house was only minimally related to biological affinity. Moreover, the site does not appear to be organized into larger, biologically related neighborhoods of houses. These findings suggest that Çatalhöyük may not have been a kin-based society, largely because membership within a house cemetery was not solely defined on the basis of biological affinity, such as in a family group. Rather, it appears that social structure was centered on the house as the unifying social principle. The choice for interment location may have transcended biological lines thereby creating an alternate and more fluid definition of "kin." These findings can be used to understand the transition to settled life and biological patterning in this Neolithic community. Copyright © 2011 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

By pooling independent study means (x-), the T-Tables use the central limit theorem and law of large numbers to average out study-specific sampling bias and instrument errors and, in turn, triangulate upon human population means (μ). Since their first publication in 2008, new data from >2660 adults have been collected (c.30% of the original sample) making a review of the T-Table's robustness timely. Updated grand means show that the new data have negligible impact on the previously published statistics: maximum change = 1.7 mm at gonion; and ≤1 mm at 93% of all landmarks measured. This confirms the utility of the 2008 T-Table as a proxy to soft tissue depth population means and, together with updated sample sizes (8851 individuals at pogonion), earmarks the 2013 T-Table as the premier mean facial soft tissue depth standard for craniofacial identification casework. The utility of the T-Table, in comparison with shorths and 75-shormaxes, is also discussed. © 2013 American Academy of Forensic Sciences.
