Lignite Deposits and Kidney and Renal Pelvic Cancers in Texas 1980-1998

Lignite Deposits and Kidney and Renal Pelvic Cancers in Texas 1980-1998

Date: April 3, 2008
Creator: Guthrey, Harvey & Oppong, Joseph R.
Description: This presentation discusses research on lignite deposits and kidney and renal pelvic cancers in Texas from 1980 to 1998. Age-adjusted mortality rates for kidney and renal pelvic cancers are above average in Texas counties that contain lignite deposits. The research study also probes the role of such factors as race, gender, and socioeconomic status on mortality rates for these cancers.

NAGPRA Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act: The Law and Ethics of the Kennewick Man Controversy

NAGPRA Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act: The Law and Ethics of the Kennewick Man Controversy

Date: April 3, 2008
Creator: Sowa, Graham & Nagaoka, Lisa
Description: This presentation discusses research on the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) and the law and ethics of the Kennewick Man. On the bank of the Columbia River in 1996, the remains of a Native American man were found and dated to 9,300 years ago. NAGPRA mandates that tribes be notified when Native American remains are found. Tribes were not notified of these remains; however the remains were found to be "culturally unaffiliated". The remains are currently being stored at the Burke Museum, after the courts ruled against the Utamilla tribe. This presentation discusses these remains and examines the legal factors and legislation on remains.

Notes on the Reality of Archaeological Data: Two Zooarchaeological Case Studies from the Northern Rio Grande Region of New Mexico

Notes on the Reality of Archaeological Data: Two Zooarchaeological Case Studies from the Northern Rio Grande Region of New Mexico

Date: April 19, 2012
Creator: Dombrosky, Jonathan & Wolverton, Steven J.
Description: This presentation discusses research on archaeology. Two case studies from the Northern Rio Grande (NRG) region of New Mexico show the limitations of zooarchaeological data. Principles derived from these case studies can help assuage overconfidence from the general public, as well as members of the archaeological community, and can ease excessive caution from members of the "harder sciences" in regard to archaeological conclusions.

Pediatric  and Maternal HIV in Texas Border Counties and Urban Area

Pediatric and Maternal HIV in Texas Border Counties and Urban Area

Date: April 14, 2011
Creator: Ho, Jessie & Oppong, Joseph R.
Description: This paper examines the geography of pediatric HIV, HIV in women, and age at diagnosis of women in the Dallas Fort-Worth metroplex, Houston-Galveston Area, and the colonias of Texas-Mexico border counties using the human ecology model. In addition, the study investigates the correlation of female HIV rates and female age at diagnosis with pediatric HIV. County-level morbidity data from the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) from 1980-2009 are analyzed. Pediatric HIV and HIV in women have a strong positive correlation. The border counties have lower rates of HIV than do the urban areas, and have the youngest age at diagnosis, but have a higher pediatric HIV rate than Dallas Fort-Worth metroplex. Interventions should target preventing HIV in females.
