Weapons of War: Rape UN as an Arena - NGO's - Discussion and dialogue Arena Instrument Actor Critical Thinking Weapons of War: Rape UN as an instrument UNSC Resolution 1820 (2008) UN as an Actor - UN Action Against Sexual Violence in Conflict Weapons of War: Rape Problems with 1820 "Roles and Functions of International Organizations" "Sexual violence, when used as a tactic of war in order to deliberately target civilians or as a part of a widespread or systematic attack against civilian populations, can significantly exacerbate situations of armed conflict and may impede the restoration of international peace and security… effective steps to prevent and respond to such acts of sexual violence can significantly contribute to the maintenance of international peace and security" (UNSC Resolution 1820, p. 2)" Background Presentation- Kristin Mann Weapons of War: Rape Brief Insight - used to manipulate social control - destabilize communities - weaken ethnic groups and identities Examples: - Sudanese Militia - Rwanda Genocide - DRC Critical Thinking Critical Thinking Increased Data Collection by international organizations - determine humanitarian responses - ensures justice and reparation - provides recognition and dignity

Rainbow Trout Presentation

Transcript: To prove that maximum cardiac performance is linked to active metabolic rate and critical swimming speed in Rainbow Trout. In vitro perfused heart studies Performed on 15 good swimmers and 15 bad swimmers A stainless steel input cannula was secured into the sinus venosus through a hepatic vein and perfusion begun immediately with oxygenated saline containing a tonic level of adrenaline The stainless steel output cannula was advanced into the ventral aorta until the tip was in the bulbus arteriosus and tied firmly in place. In vivo swimming studies Introduction Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) native only to the rivers and lakes of North America, west of the Rocky Mountains Rainbow trout survive on insects, crustaceans, and small fish Average life 4-6 years Study conducted by: Guy Claireaux, David J. McKenzie, A. Gaylene Genge, Aurélien Chatelier, Joël Aubin and Anthony P. Farrell The maximum pumping ability of the heart was assessed by increasing the cardiac output pressure In vivo continued Performed on 6 bad swimmers and 6 good swimmers Fish were anesthetized Ventral aorta was exposed via an incision in the cleithrum, and a Transonic flow probe was placed around it 48 hour calm recovery 4 hour gentle current swimming recovery 6 batches of 100 fish put in circular tank Velocity was slowly raised Fish swam against current until fatigued and fell back against mesh screen The first ten fish to fatigue were deemed bad swimmers and the last ten good swimmers In vitro continued Linking swimming performance, cardiac pumping ability and cardiac anatomy in rainbow trout Conclusion Brie Wiggins Methods All fish were anesthetized and a Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT-tag) was inserted into the peritoneal cavity This procedure was repeated for each batch of 100 fish The resulting 120 fish were then mixed in two outdoor holding tanks These results provide clear evidence that maximum cardiac performance is linked to active metabolic rate and critical swimming speed. Indicating that a simple screening test can distinguish between rainbow trout with lower active metabolic rate, critical swimming speed, maximal cardiac pumping capacity and a more rounded ventricular morphology 600 juvenile rainbow trout were screened, but only the first and last 60 fish to fatigue were used (good/bad swimmers) 120 juveniles for experiment tunnel respirometers Transonic flow probe Physiological saline Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT-tag) Results Hypothesis Fish were exposed to increasing water velocity until they were determined to be fatigued They determined this by if the fish were no longer able to get off of the screen Oxygen uptake was measured at each velocity interval Arterial blood samples were collected from the DA cannula (and replaced with an equal volume of saline) at swimming speeds of 40 and 80, as well as just prior to fatigue Materials QUESTIONS? Poor swimmers: 27% lower critical swimming 19% lower active metabolic rate 30% lower maximum in vivo cardiac output. 26% lower maximum cardiac output 32% lower maximum cardiac power output at a high afterload "In the present study we exploited inherent individual diversity and reasoned that if cardiac performance is indeed closely linked with swimming performance, then poor swimmers should have poorer cardiac performance than good swimmers." They screened a large group of trout to determine the good swimmers in the population. Yes? Maybe? No?

Malawi – Climate/Agriculture Trading partners: South Africa, Zambia, China, US Challenges: · shortage of qualified primary school teachers; · inadequate physical infrastructure; · poor retention of girls mainly from standard five to eight; · high disease burden due to HIV and AIDS consequently leading to absenteeism especially among girls who take care of the sick; and · poor participation of school committees and their communities in school management. · Poverty levels are high in rural areas. 1 Doctor per 50,000 people Hinders the ability to deliver medical services to people in need Reason: Emigration Lack of access to education Aggravated by AIDS > 4 nurses are lost each month This also affects other sectors: Government Business Farmers Human Resources HIV/AIDS - Contemporary GDP: US $14.58 billion (2012 est.) (World ranking: 142) Labor force: agriculture: 90%; industry and services: 10% (2003 est.) Countries main income Agriculture Main crops: maize, tobacco, tea, sugar cane, groundnuts, cotton, wheat, coffee, and rice Industry: tobacco, tea, sugar, sawmill products, cement, consumer goods Challenges: limited capacity in terms of human and material resources to facilitate adult literacy and continuing education; early marriages perpetuated by socioeconomic factors; socio–cultural factors that make people believe that men should be leaders while women are followers; and, poor learning environment which affects girls in primary and secondary schools e.g. sanitary facilities, long distances to education facilities, extra burden from domestic chores especially for adolescent girls resulting into high dropout rate. 1964: Independent from Britain Indicator 1: Maternal Mortality Ratio Malawi Demographics Problems - Outline Indicator 4: Share of Women in Wage Employment in the Non- Agriculture Sector measure of employment opportunities ( i.e equal proportions of men and women in formal employment) Yet, more women participate in the agriculture sector than in the formal wage employment especially in jobs that require professional qualifications. Due to: literacy levels, gender disparity and cultural values.
