Inside the Psychologist’s Studio Videos

The Association for Psychological Science (APS) is offering this terrific set of interviews and conversations with prominent psychologists to the general public. Currently, there are nine interviews available here, which visitors can read about to determine how to start. One particularly noteworthy conversation is between Nobel Laureate and APS Fellow Daniel Kahneman and Professor Richard Thaler of the University of Chicago. During the conversation, they talk about the relationship between psychology and economics, and offer thoughts on academic controversies and collaborations. The other individuals interviewed here include National Medal of Science winner Gordon Bower, Janet Taylor Spence, and Michael Gazzaniga.

Satellite-linked PDAs promise to speed Haitian relief effort

“As Haitians dig furiously through the rubble to find survivors and the dead,  Global Relief Technologies (GRT) is planning to map and record the destruction on the ground to give relief workers critical realtime information as they race against the clock. With the earthquake disaster and heartbreaking search for survivors dominating the news, local media outlets here in Boston with its sizable Haitian community have rushed to cover GRT.” (by John Dodge, smartplanet).

eHRAF World Cultures on Trial

Produced by the Human Relations Area Files, Inc. (HRAF) at Yale University, the eHRAF World Cultures is a cross-cultural database that contains information on all aspects of cultural and social life. The annually-growing eHRAF database is unique in that the information is organized by cultures and ethnic groups and the full-text documents are subject-indexed at the paragraph level. It can be used to find information on particular cultures, ethnic groups, or immigrant groups, information on beliefs, superstitions, or subjects such as political structure, architecture, kinship units, or settlement patterns.

WHO, partners launch health response for Pakistan’s flood, conflict displaced

9 SEPTEMBER 2008 | GENEVA — Some 423,000 people in Pakistan need urgent health care after being affected by recent conflict and flooding. The World Health Organization (WHO) and partners are requesting US$9.76 million to undertake life-saving health responses to this humanitarian crisis.

Outbreaks of communicable diseases, including acute watery diarrhoea, respiratory infections, and various water- and vector-borne diseases, are of high risk due to large numbers of people forced into cramped, temporary housing where concerns exist over the safety of drinking water and sanitation. With malaria season starting, risks for a large-scale spread of malaria are high. Outbreaks of measles, one of the major killers of children, are also possible due to low immunization coverage in some areas.

“Thousands of lives are at risk in Pakistan if we do not act now to provide urgent health care to those  affected by these terrible floods or forced from their homes by violence,” said Dr Eric Laroche, Assistant Director-General for WHO’s Health Action in Crises Cluster.

Pakistan’s worst-hit areas by August’s heavy monsoon rains were Peshawar, in the Northwest Frontier Province (NWFP), and Rajanpur, in Punjab province. Mud houses were washed away and clinics, bridges and other infrastructure destroyed. Some 200 000 people were affected in NWFP and 100,000 in Punjab. Many urgently need aid, particularly the elderly, sick and disabled.

Violence in NWFP and the neighboring FATA has forced 123,000 people to flee in recent months. While a considerable number of displaced people have returned due to the Ramadan cease-fire, it is estimated that 400,000 more could be displaced if hostilities resume at the end of Ramadan (late September) or earlier. UN agencies cannot reach a further 200 000 displaced inside FATA.

WHO and the Ministry of Health are coordinating the activities of health players as part of the “Health Cluster” response to address the health needs of people in camps and areas of return, as well as support health services in the seven districts hosting the displaced.

“Local authorities, with federal support, have provided help, including healthcare support and food,” said Dr Khalif Bile, WHO’s representative to Pakistan. “But the extent of the crisis means more aid is needed, including medicines, water and sanitation materials for 150 000 people. Restoring key services, like health, is vital.”

WHO announced a US$5.5 million package as part of the Pakistan Humanitarian Response Plan to:
*     coordinate health interventions;
*     offer primary health care: treat illnesses, mother and child care, psychosocial support;
*     monitor disease outbreaks and nutrition statuses;
*     assess local health services, identify damages, provide equipment and fix facilities;
*     improve water quality and provide water and sanitation to health facilities.

WHO’s Health Cluster partners need a combined US$4.26 million for crucial health activities, including UNICEF (maternal and child health care, such as immunizations), UNFPA (reproductive health services), Merlin NGO (primary health care), Islamic Relief Pakistan and International Medical Corps (mobile services), and Johanniter (mother and child health services).
