Speaking after her TEDxUCD 2016 talk Professor Michaela Higgins said, “We are seeing an exponential increase in cancer cases in the developing world as we improve the control of infant mortality rates and infectious diseases. 70% of all cancer deaths are occurring in Africa, Asia, Central and South America, yet nearly 90% of the $100 billion currently being used to treat cancers is spent in Europe, USA and Japan.” “As I outlined in my TEDxUCD 2016 talk to reduce this imbalance, and taking into account that most cancers have a lifestyle or environmental cause, we need to stop smoking, eat healthily and vaccinate against common cancer-causing viruses.” Prior to Professor Higgins current appointment, Michaela was an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a Consultant Physician at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. While in Boston, Michaela was involved with the development of a small oncology service over an 18-month period, at Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais in Haiti. This was with support from Partners in Health, a not-for-profit corporation working to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need, in Haiti and around the world. She is a member of Cancer Research UK’s Clinical Trials Awards and Advisory Committee and the Mater Hospital Lung Cancer Working Group. She serves on the UCD Clinical Research Centre Executive Committee. Michaela is enthusiastic about teaching the next generation of medical doctors, and is particularly interested in global oncology.

Ankylosing spondylitis: Symptoms and early signs Ankylosing spondylitis is a type of arthritis that typically begins in the spine and the joints between the spine and the pelvis. It causes pain, stiffness, and may affect the shape of the spine and mobility. Symptoms can spread to other parts of the body and, eventually, this chronic inflammatory disease can cause some of the bones in the spine to fuse together. The early diagnosis and treatment of ankylosing spondylitis (AS), can reduce the risk of spinal deformity and help people manage the symptoms. Symptoms The Spondylitis Association of America note that symptoms of AS vary greatly between individuals, as does the age at which it develops. The Association also state that AS may present differently in a minority of people, particularly women, with the pain beginning in areas other than the lower back. For example, AS may start in the neck, ankle, elbow, or another joint. Around 1 in 10 people with the condition experience symptoms so severe, they are at risk of long-term disability.

Dr. Tony Talebi Discusses the Treatment of Stage 3-4 Hodgkin Lymphoma with Dr. Morhbacher. For further information visit http://www.HemOnc101.com Dr. Talebi's practice, Miami Hematology and Oncology Associates is located at 151 NW 11th street, Suite W303. Homestead, Fl 33030. Tel 786-504-3084 Treatment of stage 3 and 4 Hodgkin lymphoma Hodgkin lymphoma accounts for approximately 10 percent of all lymphomas and approximately 0.6 percent of all cancers diagnosed in the developed world annually. This amounts to approximately 8830 new cases due to Hodgkin in the United States annually. The majority of patients with classical Hodgkin lymphoma present with painless localized enlarged lymph nodes, typically involving the cervical (neck) region. Hodgkin lymphoma arises from germinal center or post-germinal center B cells in the lymph nodes. Hodgkin lymphoma has a unique cellular composition, containing a minority of neoplastic cells (Reed-Sternberg cells and their variants) in an inflammatory background. It is separated from the other B cell lymphomas based on its unique clinicopathologic features, and can be divided into two major sub-groups, based on the appearance and immunophenotype of the tumor cells. The diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma is made by the evaluation of involved tissue, usually a lymph node biopsy. Excisional biopsies are preferred and large core needle biopsies may be adequate in select cases. Here, Dr. Tony Talebi discusses the treament of stage 3 and 4 Hodgkin lymphoma with Dr. Ann Morhbacher, associate professor of medicine at the University of Southern California and a "top US doctor" as per US world news and world report magazine. The discussion includes symptoms, diagnosis, staging, genetic implications, secondary cancers and treatment of hodgkin lymphoma. Dr. Ann Morhbacher credentials: Title: Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine Locations: University of Southern California (USC) Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center Specialties: Hematology and Oncology Background: Dr. Mohrbacher, a graduate of Harvard Medical School, is a devoted educator, researcher and medical practitioner. She has several hematology related research interests and activities, including bone marrow transplantation, and has received thousands of dollars in research grants.

Closed Captions Ko-Pomoja is an educational program design to teach black women the importance about breast and cervical cancer screening. We designed this pure educational program because there is quite a bit of international research showing that black women are at higher risk for developing more aggressive form of breast cancer and having worse outcomes. As well, there is quite a bit of research showing black women are at increased risk cervical cancer. In addition quite a bit of research shows that in Canada that immigrant groups, which also including much of the black community are less likely to get screened. Ko-Pomoja is a pure education program, so we train two women in the community who are not health care professionals to teach other women in the community about the importance of breast and cervical cancer screening. The results were very positive. They reported that for those who are not planning on getting screened prior to the session, eighty-six percent of them intended to get their Mammogram and/or PAP Test after attending our session. For next steps, we are hoping to expand the program across the GTA. I’m a researcher. My research mainly focuses on Cancer Screening [something] So I’m basically the academic partner on the Ko-Pomoja Team. So Onye Nnorom took the lead on this project. She got her feet in both worlds, the academic world and the community. And my role is really to provide some academic oversight and guidance on the research part. I’m very proud of the work that has been done with Ko-Pomoja. The reason we do research is because we ultimately want to see it have an impact on the community. So it was very nice to be involved in this direct community work and to see the fact that there were clear out comes that women increase their knowledge and few of them actually got screened for breast in just a few months was really exciting to see. Hello, my name is Liben Gebremikael. I am the Executive Director of TAIBU Community Health Centre. TAIBU was a partner with Doctor Onye Nnorom and doing some research around breast and cervical cancer screening among black women. We found out from the community that the best way of engaging, educating, and empowering black women around breast screening and cervical cancer screening was to organize a program that is led by peer educators in the community. This has been a very successful venture that we have started. We are very proud as an organization from TAIBU to have partnered with Doctor Onye Nnorom and created and be part of the Ko-Pomoja peer education program.

http://www.montereyspine.com Hello, my name is Sohrab Gollogly. And my name is Dragan Dimitrov. My speciality is orthopedics and spine surgery And I'm a neurosurgeon We work together as a team treating spinal disorders and performing surgery at Monterey Spine and Joint, our private practice in Monterey, California. We would like to give you a simple overview of a condition called cervical myelopathy. The term myelopathy comes from the latin root "myelo" meaning spinal cord and "pathos" meaning a disease of. Therefore, cervical meylopathy is a disease of the spinal cord. The symptoms associated with myelopathy most commonly include a sense of numbness in the finger tips, clumsiness with the hands such as difficulty buttoning buttons, and difficulty with feeling balanced when walking. These symptoms often develop so slowly that the person is not aware of how severe they truly are. Many times the patient also complains of neck pain, but not always. These symptoms are not unique to cervical myelopathy and can be caused by many other conditions. To figure out whether or not these symptoms are related to a problem with the spinal cord, an mri of the cervical spine - the neck, from the base of the skull to the shoulders is very useful and is a key part of confirming the diagnosis. On an mri, in patients suspected of having cervical myelopathy, we look for a finding called "spinal stenosis" Spinal stenosis is a medical term that describes narrowing of the space available for the spinal cord and nerve roots in the spinal canal. Specifically, when we are talking about cervical myelopathy, we are looking to see if the spinal cord has enough space to pass through the spinal canal. Narrowing of the space for the spinal cord is usually caused by degenerative changes such as disc protrusions and facet hypertrophy due to arthritis of the spine that occurs naturally with age. While almost everyone develops arthritic changes visible on the mri, only a minority will develop spinal stenosis that requires surgical treatment Spinal stenosis encompasses a spectrum from mild to severe. At the mild end, are the normal arthritic changes that occur in almost everyone. On the severe end of the spectrum, there is often a finding called "T2 signal change" suggesting that there is swelling or bruising of the spinal cord because it is being severely compressed. these patient's usually have severe symptoms. Now, Lets look at a couple of MRI images of the cervical spine - one that is normal, one that shows mild stenosis, and one that shows severe stenosis This first image is a normal MRI scan of the neck. INSERT PICTURE 1 In this image there is normal alignment of the bones and the disks of the spine and there is plenty of space around the spinal cord inside the spinal canal. This space contains a fluid called cerebrospinal fluid that bathes the spinal cord. The cord floats in this fluid and on the MRI scan, the cord has a normal, consistent dark appearance. This is an MRI scan of a patient with cervical stenosis. INSERT PICTURE 2 In this image, the disks are degenerated and bulging in towards the spinal canal and the canal is narrowed by the arthritic process that occurs naturally with age. This patient has cervical stenosis and While there is narrowing of the spinal canal, there are no signs of significant compression of the spinal cord. in this image, the degree of cervical stenosis is severe INSERT PICTURE 3 Like the previous image, the disks have degenerated and they are bulging in towards the spinal canal. However, in this image, the spinal cord has been bruised by the constant pressure. This shows up as a bright white signal in the center of the spinal cord and this indicates that the spinal cord is in trouble. This is a condition that should be evaluated by a spinal expert as soon as possible. Cervical myelopathy is a diagnosis based on three things. #1 -- the patients complaints of hand clumsiness, numbness, and imbalance. #2 the MRI scan shows cervical stenosis and compression of the cord. . and finally #3 physical findings on a neurological exam confirm the diagnoses. If you have the signs and symptoms of cervical myelopathy you should be examined by a physician such as a neurosurgeon, orthopedic spine surgeon, or neurologist. The treatment of cervical myelopathy is surgical. The goal of surgery is to decompress the spinal cord and to allow it to function normally. Time is of the essence, If the condition is treated early enough.... the patient's symptoms often improve. However, we know that the natural history of cervical myelopathy is one of a gradual stepwise worsening with periods of relatively stability. The longer the symptoms persist and the more severe they are, the less likely they are to improve with surgery. http://youtu.be/Tb6FI9Yzt3c

The Osage ballet, Wahzhazhe, is a contemporary ballet that brings together unique and diverse qualities of Oklahoma history and culture: a reverence for classical ballet that was the legacy of two famous Osage ballerinas, Maria and Marjorie Tallchief, and the richness of Osage traditional music, dance, and textile arts. The creative set designs transform the stage into accurate depictions of Osage lifestyles and the costumes are created to appear as the traditional tribal clothing that was worn during the past 200 years. The ballet depicts the history of the Osage people: their removal from their homelands, the boarding-school era, the discovery of oil on their reservation, which lead to great wealth and tragedy, and the celebration of Osage life today. Wahzhazhe is produced by Randy Tinker Smith and choreographed by Jenna Smith, both of Osage descent. Roman Jasinski acted as adviser on the project. This performance was recorded on March 23, 2013 in the Rasmuson Theater of the National Museum of the American Indian.

September 25, 2013 - How has Eurocentric anthropology and linguistics affected the way we interpret our elders and ancestors who share their cultural knowledge with foreign researchers? Join us for a presentation with Khelsilem Rivers and April Charlo, indigenous peoples from community-based and cultural revitalization backgrounds, who will be discussing decolonization of language revitalization. Their presentation and open dialogue will address the context of rapid language loss and decline, and how colonization has affected or is embedded in the strategies of revitalization. In an effort to revitalize Indigenous languages, communities may have unknowingly adopted or assimilated colonized ways of thinking as they invest interest and attempt to repair or restore ties to culture and language. Are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha, et all with an English-mind or are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha with a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyaw, Kanien'keháka mind? Indigenous languages represent one of the darkest ways in which ethnocide and cultural genocide have occurred. It is expected in the next twenty-five years over 700 of the worlds Indigenous languages will be forgotten. In the Vancouver area alone, the two Indigenous languages are considered critical endangered; Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) language has five to seven fluent speakers and hən̓q̓əmin̓əm has one fluent speaker left. Decolonizing Language Revitalization aims to put forward perspectives of shifting values, cultural understandings, and impacts on community. It is the stories we tell ourselves (as a people) that impacts who we believe we are, and then who we become. But if the stories -- even including, or especially the Indigenous ones -- are filtered through colonialism, we have become a different people because of it. April Charlo from Bitterroot Salish people and is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Montana. Khelsilem Rivers is a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw language revitalization activist from Vancouver.

But it has grown into a large indigenous movement, with protests and ceremonial gatherings held almost daily in many of the country's major cities. The movement is spearheaded by Theresa Spence, the leader of the Attawapiskat, a small native band in northern Ontario. Spence is now 22 days into a hunger strike on Ottawa's Victoria Island just across from the Canadian Parliament. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

Free News Sharing and On-Line Art Gallery http://www.ciactivist.org FEATURE: The 2016 Fire and Rain art project that began in early January was inspired by news stories on wildfires that burned throughout Western Canada in 2015. Paintings were displayed outdoors publicly throughout Edmonton and their stories shared on YouTube. I used art from the beginning to defend freedom of expression on the Alberta Legislature grounds when it was verbally banned 3 times by Legislature officials. Some of the YouTubes published shared how the wildfires and flooding that followed affected Albertans, their communities and the environment. I hope my art and the stories shared will inspire us to contemplate the calamities in Alberta of 2016 as a collective and together help each other find ways and better solutions to save our planet and our children's future.

Presented by Chief Bellegarde, Chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Saskatchewan is in the middle of an unprecedented resource boom. With oil and gas in the south, potash in central Saskatchewan and uranium in the North, along with promising mineral plays in various locations,Saskatchewan's economy is growing rapidly. First Nations are determined to benefit from the boom, as Treaty Peoples with strong ties to the land and with promises from government that we will benefit from development. With duty to consult and accommodate requirements in place, Saskatchewan First Nations have become national leaders in working out appropriate collaboration and impact and benefit agreements with companies and governments. Much more can be done. More First Nations can be employed on the resource projects. Greater care can be taken to protect our traditional lands and protect our people from harm. There are important business opportunities for First Nations companies that remain to be developed. First Nations will not stand in the way of properly managed development that is based on consultations and agreements with our communities, but nor will First Nations agree to open-ended development strategies that do not return a fair share of the benefits from resource development with the Saskatchewan First Nations.

Friday, February 20, 2015 Perspectives on Native Representations Symposium: Keynote Speaker Panel Dr. Adrienne Keene, Migizi Penseneau & Matika Wilbur While the history between Native peoples and representations of identity projected upon them (having been replicated and reinforced in popular culture) is layered and complex, the rise of technology and social media has ushered in an era of accessible activism that pushes against this history. Native peoples across the world now have practicable, highly visible modes to express unique voices that challenge and redefine how Natives are represented both internal and external of their communities. "Perspectives on Native Representations" seeks to highlight the multiple contexts through which representations of Native communities, culture and individuals are being shifted and re-imagined. Sponsored by UC Berkeley's Native American Student Development. Co-sponsored by the Joseph A. Myers Center for Research on Native American Issues.
