Prostate Cancer, Bone Metastases, and Treatment-Related Osteoporosis A Publication of The Bone and Cancer Foundation General Information about Prostate Cancer 1. Q. What is prostate cancer? A. Prostate cancer is an abnormal (malignant) growth of the prostate, a walnut-sized gland at the base of the urinary bladder in men. 2. Q. How common is prostate cancer? A. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men (except for skin cancer) and a leading cause of cancer death worldwide. In 2007, close to 218,890 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 27,050 men will die from prostate cancer in the U.S. 3. Q. How is prostate cancer diagnosed? A. Prostate cancer is most often diagnosed by needle biopsy of the prostate gland. Biopsies are usually advised for men found to have either an abnormal digital rectal exam (DRE) or elevated PSA blood level. (The medical term for PSA is prostate-specific antigen.) Some, but not all men with an abnormal DRE or PSA have prostate cancer. Digital rectal exam (DRE) — is a procedure in which a gloved finger is put into the rectum to check the prostate gland. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) — is a protein produced by the prostate gland. Its level goes up in the blood of some men who have prostate cancer. It can also go up with other conditions that affect the prostate. These include infections (prostatitis) and a non-cancerous growth that comes with aging, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). 4. Q. What are the risk factors for prostate cancer? A. Risk for prostate cancer increases with age. More than 90% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer are older than 50 years. African-American men have a higher risk for prostate cancer than men of other races. A family history of prostate cancer increases prostate cancer risk. About 10% of prostate cancers appear to run in families although little is known about how or why this happens. Some environmental factors, including high intake of dietary fat, appear to increase prostate cancer risk. 5. Q. How is early-stage prostate cancer treated? A. There are several treatment choices for men with early-stage prostate cancer (tumors that appear confined to the prostate gland): Prostatectomy: surgical removal of the prostate gland. ...
Bourdieu and Passeron (1973) famously defined cultural capital as the accumulated cultural knowledge that confers power and status. Their original work explained many of the intangible advantages that allowed the upper class to obtain better status jobs, education, etc. Here we extend this concept to include “computational capital”—the concepts, skills, and other resources that facilitate participation in computing activities, education and careers. We posit that hidden sources of computational capital can be found in some cultural practices of disadvantaged groups, and that a suitable learning environment can make this capital available to its owners. In the study presented here, the cultural practice is cornrow hairstyles, and the learning environment is based on Cornrow Curves, a web applet that allows children to use math and computing principles to simulate the patterns of these braids. This paper analyzes the interactions of African-American children with Cornrow Curves, in particular their reflections on the relationship between their heritage identity and the experience of learning math and computing through cultural resources. We use Bennett’s (2008) concept of “design agency” to describe the ways in which the students’ creative explorations in this computational geometry converge with their cultural construction of the self.

This unit is designed as a resource for counselors and teachers collaborating on classroom guidance. It is structured as a series of workshops integrated into core and elective courses, and aims to improve emotional behaviors and attitudes of the students. Supporting what guidance counselors refer to as the self-actualization process, the guidances address several identity issues confronting the culturally diverse population of African American students attending University City High School. The first identity issue is cultural misrecognition among the students. The term “African American,” used to describe ninety percent of the students in official school demographics, is misleading, for it underrepresents the cultural diversity of a student body that includes many second and third generation immigrants and refugees from African, Caribbean and Asian countries. A second identity issue relates to the transformation of the neighborhood known among older residents as “the Bottom,” and more recently as “Black Bottom.” Over the past century, this community has been encompassed and subsumed into the expanding corporate world of the Universities of Pennsylvania and Drexel. Community members who have been displaced continue to celebrate the Bottom through an annual reunion at Fairmount Park. Community members who remain in the dwindling patches of what was the Bottom find themselves living inside of a foreign corporate entity now known as University City. In this context, the impending closing of UCHS in 2009 amplifies the sense of displacement.
