Prostate Cancer Screening Decision Making Under Controversy: Implications for Health Promotion Pract
Prostate cancer is a major health problem for U.S. men and is characterized by paradoxes and controversies.

As the relative value of screening, early detection, and treatment strategies continue to be debated, glaring racial-ethnic disparities persist with African American men experienci

Subsets of measurements were used to calculate platymeric indices, which demonstrate the presence or absence of platymeria in a population. Metric analyses of the femur were also used to study size and shape differences in populations for indications of sexual dimo

Bored to death: William Inge’s women and The feminine mystique
Ever since Robert Brustein’s review of The Dark at the Top of the Stairs in November 1958, the role of the female characters in William Inge’s plays has been of interest to a number of critics. At that time, Brustein claimed that Inge’s female characters were "men-taming women" who were castrative to their husbands. After the publication of his review, many critics followed in suit and also described Inge’s women in the same terms; however, only one of these critics, Janet Juhnke, examin

Chinese Exclusion Act
Starting with the Gold Rush, Chinese migrated to California and other regions of the United States in search of work. As several photographs show, many Chinese found work in the gold mines and on the railroads. They accepted $32.50 a month to work on the Union Pacific in Wyoming in 1870 for the same job that paid white workers $52 a month. This led to deep resentment by the whites, who felt the Chinese were competing unfairly for jobs. White labor unions blamed the Chinese for lower wages and la

Les AMAP en Midi-Pyrénées : relations de proximité entre agriculteurs et consommateurs

L’essentiel des produits alimentaires est aujourd’hui vendu par la grande distribution. Il existe cependant d’autres circuits, où producteurs et adhérents œuvrent afin d’aboutir à une « consommation raisonnée », les AMAP (Association pour le Maintien d'une Agriculture Paysanne). Ce mode de relation basée sur un partenariat est étudié ici sous l’angle du géographe et permet de mieux cerner l’incidence de ces pratiques sur le territoire et le développement local.
