Transcript: Background Sub objective: Construct framework and indicators for vulnerability What are the characteristics of vulnerable people? Fewer material and/or financial resources Less physically or mentally capable Less knowledge or experience Restricted by commitments Current evacuation procedures often expect people to: Be able to understand warnings, have physical capability and resources to evacuate, and don’t have other responsibilities Niigata prefecture - Sanjo city Ibaraki prefecture - Chikusei city Acknowledgments Objective 1 Methods Background Objectives Methods Results Discussion Conclusions Short Overview of Methods Case study areas Flooding of Sanjo City in 2011 Sub objective: Evaluate DRM policy for measures for vulnerable people Metric based on study by Lumbroso (2011) with these scores: 1. No mention of groups of potentially vulnerable people 2. Recognition of a group of potentially vulnerable people 3. Specific measures taken to reduce vulnerability 4. Anticipation of future numbers of potentially vulnerable people 5. Involvement of potentially vulnerable people in policy creation Evaluated DRM laws and policies on national, sub-national and regional level with 2 local areas in each country Sub objective: Define vulnerable people Literature review and analysis DRM laws and policies Laws and policies related to vulnerable people Research publications from official organizations (UN, NGOs) Journal publications, books and other expert publications No consensus on vulnerable people 6th APHW Conference, 19 August 2013: Title: Quantifying the effectiveness of measures taken for vulnerable people in Disaster Risk Management (DRM) in the Netherlands Pending publications: Article for Natural Hazards, under review (2014) Title: How many people are vulnerable? A quantitative estimate of vulnerable populations and evaluation of flood evacuation policy Authors: K. Vink, K. Takeuchi, K. Kibler Article for Water International, in preparation (2014) Book for Routledge publishing, in preparation (2015) Title: Generationing Crisis and Disaster Editors: J. Warner, R. Gigengack, K. Vink In your opinion, who are vulnerable people? Overall: DRM laws rarely anticipated future numbers of vulnerable people, and none were created by involvement of vulnerable people Objective 3 Results Objective 4 Methods Discussion Methods Need to assume or estimate certain statistical data, particularly for the characteristic ‘restricted by commitments’; estimated numbers were related to other numbers of people For all indicators in each country I made equal effort to locate evidence from governmental or scientific reports pertaining to the number of people No data on ‘people living in poverty’, who also have the characteristic ‘less physically or mentally capable’, perhaps due to privacy issues. This group could be both extremely vulnerable and numerous Recommendations and future research Objectives Limitations First limitation: lack of independence associated with vulnerability characteristics - people can have multiple characteristics simultaneously or the characteristics may change over time If the numbers of vulnerable people are combined, the actual total number of people who are vulnerable would be lower, but their vulnerability would be increased depending on how many characteristics they have Conclusions Japan Problem Statement Results of DRM policy evaluation USA has the most elaborate measures, these could be used as examples (for Netherlands) Identification or lack of identification of groups of potentially vulnerable people at the national level does not necessary lead to more or less detailed support measures DRM laws rarely anticipated future numbers of potentially vulnerable people, and none were created by involvement of potentially vulnerable people. We count on our governments to make equitable policies, but this has clearly not yet been established in these countries Methods To evaluate regional policies two areas were chosen per country. This is a low amount, based on data availability and the expectation to encounter support measures The regional examples should not be seen as representative for the entire country; rather the national measures can be seen as supporting the regional areas Measures supporting vulnerable people may or may not be implemented, as well as complemented by measures not written down in any policy document Policies should focus on: Most numerous characteristics (~50%): people with fewer material and/or financial resources people restricted by commitments Top three most numerous indicators: women with no car access people with pet dependents children aged 0-14 DRM laws rarely anticipated future numbers of potentially vulnerable people, and none were created by involvement of potentially vulnerable people. We count on our governments to make equitable policies, but this has clearly not yet been established in these countries I would like to thank: My PhD supervisors, Prof. Kuniyoshi Takeuchi and

Transcript: Working Title: Social Media, relationships, sexuality, crip theory and people living with intellectual disability What are participant's experiences of using social media? What supports do participants believe/think they need to develop or maintain their use of social media? Where do participants go for support? What I am looking for in 2014 What kinds of Internet use are participants currently involved in? What are participant's aspirations, if any, for developing sexual relationships through the use of social media? Social media use has fast become a firmly embedded phenomena of every day life Using the Internet and social media is a way in which individuals living with intellectual disability can create/expand their friendship networks for the purpose of exploring their sexuality and developing relationships Like anyone else in society Overview of Research proposal Judith Darragh PhD Candidate Anyone who would be interested being on my list for next year once I have obtained Ethics Approval and can begin to collect my data PhD Candidate Judith Darragh Target Group Studies have explored the use of computers, the Internet and social media tools for the general public and individuals living with physical disabilities. Few studies have focused on the lived experience of individuals living with disabilities and their use of these forms of communication. Study aims to give individuals living with intellectual disability a 'voice' to describe their lived experience to explain how and/or why or why not they use social media for allowing me this opportunity to share with you my proposed research Motivation Overview of Research Questions Young adults between the ages of 18 to 26 who identify as living with an intellectual disability What are the barriers, if any, to participants' current or future use of social media? Views of significant others and gate keepers

Soil Health & Sustainable management Honey-based treatments for sub-clinical mastitis Antimicrobial Resistance According to OIE, antimicrobial resistance AMR has become one of the biggest concerns to human health. As a matter of fact, one of the sources of the inconsiderate use of antibiotics is the animal farming system. Objectives Objectives Antimicrobial Resistance Decrease the risks of multiresistant bacteria Organic/Quality milk If is successful, more organic farms could use this method Develop a new drug A technology based in honey Decrease the use of antibiotics Having a economical alternative against infections Sustainability Become dairy production more sustainable Justification Key findings Therapeutic honey effects proved Antimicrobial properties under laboratory conditions proved Irish honey: One of the best in the world Antimicrobial Properties of Honey Zafar H. Israili, MS, PhD* "it has been confirmed the broad-spectrum antimicrobial (antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antimycobacterial) properties of honey, which may be attributed to the acidity (low pH), osmotic effect, high sugar concentration".

Saorla K .Stoutc B "the composition of honey influences how beneficial it is to human health... Oilseed rape honey had the lowest TPC of Irish unifloral honeys. Heather honey had the highest TPC, similar to Manuka honey" This first examination of Irish honey confirms that TPC and physiochemical properties vary with honey type and hive location, and suggests that Irish heather honey should be examined for potential health benefits. Food Chemistry. 2019 Jan. 272, 66-75. "it may be suitable for the intramammary treatment of mastitis. As honey is harmless to tissues and would leave no undesirable residues in milk, it would be of interest to now evaluate it therapeutically in clinical mastitis. " K. L. Allen & P. C.
