sulinemia (4). Three recent studies (5–7) reported that depressive symptoms were associated with increased incidence of diabetes, although each study used a nonstandard measure of depressive symptoms; in one study, the association was limited to respondents with less than a high school education (5). Two studies found that diabetes was twice as likely to develop in depressed individuals compared with nondepressed individuals over 13 and 8 years of follow-up, respectively, but both studies were limited by low incidence rates of diabetes in their samples (8,9). Depression may contribute to metabolic abnormalities preceding the development of diabetes (10), although evidence is conﬂicting. Depressed patients with normal glucose tolerance had lower insulin sensitivity and higher insulin resistance relative to nondepressed control subjects (11). In another study, prevalence of depression was lowest at the highest levels of insulin resistance among nondiabetic women (12). Few studies examining depression and risk of diabetes have included African Americans or other minorities (5,13), although prevalence and incidence of diabetes are highest in these populations (14). We examined the relationship between depressive symptoms and insulin resistance and risk of diabetes in a multiethnic community sample of middle-aged women participating in a longitudinal study of women’s health and aging. We hypothesized that more depressive symptoms at baseline would be associated with greater increases in insulin resistance and increased risk of incident diabetes over 3 years of follow-up. We further hypothesized that the effects would most likely be observed in African Americans and Hispanics, in whom risk of diabetes is known to be higher than in Caucasians (14). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS — Participants were from the Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN), an ongoing longitudinal study of the menopausal transition.

What raises your risk for insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, and diabetes? You are at risk if you • are overweight • are physically inactive • are a woman with a waist measurement at your belly button over 35 inches or a man with a waist size over 40 inches • have a parent, brother, or sister with type 2 diabetes • are African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, Asian American, or Pacific Islander • have polycystic ovary syndrome, also called PCOS • have had gestational diabetes, which is diabetes that develops during pregnancy Physical activity, such as walking, can prevent or reverse insulin resistance. • have given birth to a baby weighing more than 9 pounds • are age 45 or older • have had above-normal blood glucose levels • have blood pressure levels of 140/90 mmHg or higher • have low HDL (good) cholesterol levels (below 35 mg/dL) • have high levels of blood fats called triglycerides (higher than 250 mg/dL) • have had heart disease, a stroke, or disease of the blood vessels in your neck or legs. • have darkening of the skin under your armpits or around your neck Some of these risk factors also raise your risk for heart disease. How is insulin resistance diagnosed? At this time, there is no commonly used test to diagnose insulin resistance. People with insulin resistance usually have no symptoms.

... clear language and enough detail that an individual with an average understanding of the field could use or reproduce the invention. Such descriptions are usually accompanied by visual materials such as drawings, plans, or diagrams to better describe the invention. The application also contains various “claims”, that is, information which determines the extent of protection granted by the patent. What kinds of inventions can be protected? (and the African Intellectual Property Organization (OAPI). Under such regional systems, an applicant requests protection for the invention in one or more countries, and each country decides as to whether to offer patent protection within its borders. The WIPO-administered Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) provides for the filing of a single international patent application which has the same effect as national applications filed in the designated countries. An applicant seeking protection may file one application and request protection in as many signatory states as needed. www.wipo.int An invention must, in general, fulfill the following conditions to be protected by a patent. It must be of practical use; it must show an element of novelty, that is, some new characteristic which is not known in the body of existing knowledge in its technical field. This body of existing knowledge is called “prior art”. The invention must show an inventive step which could not be deduced by a person with average knowledge of the technical field. Finally, its subject matter must be accepted as “patentable” under law. In many countries, scientific theories, mathematical methods, plant or animal varieties, discoveries of natural substances, commercial methods, or methods for medical treatment (as opposed to medical products) are generally not patentable. Who grants patents? ...
AS WE DISCUSSED in week five of this series, there are two broad schools of investment analysis: fundamental and technical analysis. We have explored fundamental analysis – finding the intrinsic value of a share through detailed investigation of the economy, industry and company itself – in some detail in the past few weeks. Now we will examine technical analysis: understand what it is, provide a few pointers on how to get started and where to find more information. Yonatan Rom, CEO of The Winning Edge and a technical analysis expert, describes technical analysis as: “The study of market action primarily through the use of charts for the purpose of forecasting future price trends.” Rom says that technical analysis differs from fundamental analysis in two key ways. Firstly, technical analysts study market action (that is price) whereas fundamental analysts look at the factors affecting supply and demand. Secondly, technical analysts look at the effects of market movements whereas fundamental analysts look at the cause of market movements. “The pure technical analyst attempts to bypass the uncertainty of fundamental analysis and takes out the ambiguities of what factors are driving supply and demand. It just looks at price action as simply as possible.” The result, as Richard Seddon – head of Online Share Trading at the Standard – points out, is that technical analysis is useful in timing the market when used with other confirming data. However, Rom says that the two approaches do not invalidate each other and in fact are complementary. The beauty of technical analysis is that it uses only publicly available share price information to identify trends in share prices and markets. These trends are then used to make investment decisions. As a result, technical analysis can be far more clinical than fundamental analysis and technical traders are less likely to become too emotionally involved ...

Those are the words of escaped slave Elijah Marrs as he stripped away his old rags and donned his new army blues. Marrs was only one of nearly 180,000 African American soldiers who served in the Union Army during the Civil War (Fincher 52). African American soldiers faced a struggle. Although they experienced discrimination, they served with great courage, and their effect on the United States was profound. From the very beginning of the Civil War, African American soldiers attempted to enlist in the Union Army. At first, they were rejected. At the time, most Northern whites were prejudiced against African Americans and believed they were not bold enough to fight (McPherson 52).

Men in these regiments received 10 dollars a month and no clothing allowance. In addition, African American soldiers could not serve as officers. In practice, the African American regiments often received inferior arms and ammunition. White doctors refused to serve with the regiments, and African American soldiers died of disease at a much higher rate than white soldiers (Ward, Burns, and Burns 253). It was risky for African American soldiers to enlist in the Union Army. Angry at the idea of African American troops, the Confederate forces would not allow them to surrender. Instead, they were shot or enslaved (Ward, Burns, and Burns 335). At the fierce Battle of Fort Pillow, hundreds of black soldiers were massacred after they surrendered (“Fort Pillow”). Discrimination and risk did not dampen the enthusiasm of the African American soldiers. In battle after battle, the soldiers showed great courage. At Fort Wagner, South Carolina, the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts led the attack on the Confederate stronghold. Half of the six hundred volunteers were killed, wounded, or captured; one soldier, Sergeant William Carney, became the first African American Writer’s Model | Research Paper | Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston.
