Principle
1 An Essay on the Principle of Population - Thomas Robert Malthus
Auteur : Thomas Robert Malthus
Genre : Sciences sociales
Following his success with his work on population, Malthus published often from his economics position on the faculty at the East India College at Haileybury. He was not only respected in his time by contemporaneous intellectuals for his clarity of thought and willingness to focus on the evidence at hand, but he was also an engaging writer capable of presenting logical and mathematical concepts succinctly and clearly. In addition to writing principles texts and articles on timely topics such as the corn laws, he wrote in many venues summarizing his initial works on population, including a summary essay in theEncyclopædia Britannica on population.

Tout le monde est coupable. Personne ne sait de quoi.
Caesura Texas – une minuscule bourgade clôturée, au fin fond du désert. Population ? 48 habitants. Des criminels, a priori. Ou des témoins. Comment savoir ? Tous ces gens ont changé d'identité, et leur mémoire a été effacée. Pour leur bien. Dans l'optique d'un nouveau départ.
En échange de l'amnistie, les résidents doivent accepter trois règles simples : aucun contact avec l'extérieur, aucun visiteur, et aucun retour possible en cas de départ. Une expérience unique, menée par un mystérieux institut. Pendant huit ans, tout ce petit monde est resté à peu près en place. Jusqu'à aujourd'hui.

WITH A NEW AFTERWORD FROM THE AUTHOR

Auteur : Collectif
Genre : Sciences sociales
En 2015, plus d'un million de migrants ont franchi la Méditerranée au risque de leur vie, soit deux fois plus qu'en 2014. Les guerres du Moyen-Orient et de l'Afrique, du Mali à l'Érythrée, incitent des familles entières à quitter leurs pays pour l'Europe, soit par la mer, soit par la route des Balkans. Le drame est à nos portes et laisse les dirigeants de nos pays impuissants. Partagés entre peur et compassion, dépassés par l'ampleur du phénomène, les états membres de l'Union européenne sont enclins à fermer leurs frontières. Dans un contexte de périls extérieurs liés au terrorisme, et de faiblesses internes aggravées par la crise économique, les valeurs humanistes s'effacent derrière la demande de sécurité. Pourquoi ces crises migratoires ont-elles éclaté, de quelles politiques sont-elles le fruit, de quels renoncements et manques de vision ? Comment les réso

Principle
20 An Essay on the Principle of Population - Thomas Malthus
Auteur : Thomas Malthus
Genre : Sciences sociales
The seminal essay on population growth by Thomas Robert Malthus is published here anew, complete and unabridged.
Although wrong in its prediction of mass famine owing to population growth outpacing the growth in production of food, this essay became very influential among scientific and economic thinkers. Evolutionary science in particular appreciated the efforts of Malthus, with both Alfred Russel Wallace and Charles Darwin citing his paper as an influence on their own papers on natural selection. 
Malthus theorised that the fast rising numbers of people in the industrialising world would result in lowered wages, higher unemployment, and hence greater impoverishment and even famine. This idea, and others on the same theme, have acquired the term Malthusian over more than two centuries since this paper originally appeared - to this day commentators reference Malthus's th

21 Has the West Lost It? - Kishore Mahbubani
Auteur : Kishore Mahbubani
Genre : Science politique
The West's two-century epoch as global powerhouse is at an end. A new world order, with China and India as the strongest economies, dawns. How will the West react to its new status of superpower in decline?

In Kishore Mahbubani's timely polemic, he argues passionately that the West can no longer presume to impose its ideology on the world, and crucially, that it must stop seeking to intervene, politically and militarily, in the affairs of other nations. He examines the West's greatest follies of recent times: the humiliation of Russia at the end of the Cold War, which led to the rise of Putin, and the invasion of Iraq after 9/11, which destabilised the Middle East. Yet, he argues, essential to future world peace are the Western constructs of democracy and reason, which it must continue to promote, by diplomacy rather than force, via multilateral institutions of global

Empty Planet offers a radical, provocative argument that the global population will soon begin to decline, dramatically reshaping the social, political and economic landscape.

For half a century, statisticians, pundits and politicians have warned that a burgeoning planetary population will soon overwhelm the earth's resources. But a growing number of experts are sounding a different kind of alarm. Rather than growing exponentially, they argue, the global population is headed for a steep decline.

In forty years, Earth's population will reach ten billion. Can our world support that? What kind of world will it be? Those answering these questions generally fall into two deeply divided groups--Wizards and Prophets, as Charles Mann calls them in this balanced, authoritative, nonpolemical new book.

Depuis le début du XXIe siècle, quatre grandes tendances démographiques s’observent à l’échelle mondiale : la généralisation de la transition démographique, la mondialisation des migrations, la montée de l’urbanisation, le vieillissement de la population ; et l’idée d’une évolution homogène et convergente des populations semble s’imposer.
Pourtant, derrière la réalité incontestable de ces quatre processus, des analyses précises montrent qu’il n’en est rien. Leur déploiement est non seulement varié selon les territoires, mais il connaît également une forte diversification géographique en fonction de leurs intensités et de leurs calendriers. Si bien que, contrairement aux idées reçues, il n’y a aucune convergence démographique selon

Limits to Growth are still valid. Remedies that are acceptable for the great majority tend to make things worse.

Analyzing the philosophical crisis, the book comes to the conclusion that the world may need a “new enlightenment”; one that is not based solely on doctrine, but instead addresses a balance between humans and nature, as well as a balance between markets and the state, and the short versus long term. To do this we need to leave behind working in ”silos” in favor of a more systemic approach that will require us to rethink the organization of science and education.

However, we have to act now; the world cannot wait until 7.6 billion pe

Approximately 12 million Americans, or one in twenty-five, are sociopaths. But what does this statistic mean? What exactly is a sociopath? What do they do to be labeled as such? And how many people are affected by them? While everyday lying has become acceptable and even socially necessary, it is often difficult to discover when someone is manipulating you through lies or other actions. Since a sociopath has no conscience, he or she feels no remorse about piling lie on top of lie until, eventually, the façade comes crashing down and he or she is exposed.

When Dr. Scott was warned about a film producer she had hired, she confronted the woman, only to be fed explanations and excuses. Eventually, Scott found that she had been the victim of this sociopath for five years, along with many others. In this book, she delves into medical research on sociopaths as well as interviews wit

This is a book about how we should address the great, and interconnected, global challenges of the twenty-first century. Our task, Sachs argues, is to achieve truly sustainable development, by which he means finding a global course which enables the world to benefit from the spread of prosperity while ensuring that we don't destroy the eco-systems which keep us alive and our place in nature which helps sustain our values. How do we move forward together, benefitting from our increasing technological mastery, avoiding the terrible dangers of climate change, mass famines, violent conflicts, population explosions in some parts of the world and collapses in others, and world-wide pandemic diseases?

In answering these questions, Sachs shows that there are different ways of managing the world's technology, resources and politics from those currently being followed, and that

41 Aging and the Macroeconomy - Committee on the Long-Run Macro-Economic Effects of the Aging U.S. Population, Board on Mathematical Sciences And Their Applications, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Committee on Population, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education & National Research Council
Auteur : Committee on the Long-Run Macro-Economic Effects of the Aging U.S. Population, Board on Mathematical Sciences And Their Applications, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Committee on Population, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education & National Research Council
Genre : Sciences sociales
The United States is in the midst of a major demographic shift. In the coming decades, people aged 65 and over will make up an increasingly large percentage of the population: The ratio of people aged 65+ to people aged 20-64 will rise by 80%. This shift is happening for two reasons: people are living longer, and many couples are choosing to have fewer children and to have those children somewhat later in life. The resulting demographic shift will present the nation with economic challenges, both to absorb the costs and to leverage the benefits of an aging population. Aging and the Macroeconomy: Long-Term Implications of an Older Population presents the fundamental factors driving the aging of the U.S. population, as well as its societal implications and likely long-term macroeconomic effects in a global context. The report finds that, while population aging does not pose an insur

Auteur : Steven H. Woolf, Laudan Aron, Panel on Understanding Cross-National Health Differences Among High-Income Countries, Committee on Population, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, National Research Council, Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Sciences sociales
The United States is among the wealthiest nations in the world, but it is far from the healthiest.  Although life expectancy and survival rates in the United States have improved dramatically over the past century, Americans live shorter lives and experience more injuries and illnesses than people in other high-income countries.   The U.S. health disadvantage cannot be attributed solely to the adverse health status of racial or ethnic minorities or poor people: even highly advantaged Americans are in worse health than their counterparts in other, "peer" countries.  In light of the new and growing evidence about the U.S. health disadvantage, the National Institutes of Health asked the National Research Council (NRC) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to convene a panel of experts to study the issue.  The Panel on Understanding Cross-National Health Differences Among H

43 Sodium Intake in Populations - Brian L. Strom, Ann L. Yaktine, Maria Oria, Committee on the Consequences of Sodium Reduction in Populations, Food and Nutrition Board, Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice & Institute of Medicine
Auteur : Brian L. Strom, Ann L. Yaktine, Maria Oria, Committee on the Consequences of Sodium Reduction in Populations, Food and Nutrition Board, Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
Despite efforts over the past several decades to reduce sodium intake in the United States, adults still consume an average of 3,400 mg of sodium every day. A number of scientific bodies and professional health organizations, including the American Heart Association, the American Medical Association, and the American Public Health Association, support reducing dietary sodium intake. These organizations support a common goal to  reduce daily sodium intake to less than 2,300 milligrams and further reduce intake to 1,500 mg among persons who are 51 years of age and older and those of any age who are African-American or have hypertension, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease.
A substantial body of evidence supports these efforts to reduce sodium intake. This evidence links excessive dietary sodium to high blood pressure, a surrogate marker for cardiovascular disease (CVD), stroke,

44 How Can Health Care Organizations Become More Health Literate? - Lyla M. Hernandez, Roundtable on Health Literacy, Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice & Institute of Medicine
Auteur : Lyla M. Hernandez, Roundtable on Health Literacy, Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
<p>Approximately 80 million adults in the United States have low health literacy - an individual's ability to obtain, process, and understand basic health information. Low health literacy creates difficulties in communicating with clinicians, poses barriers in managing chronic illness, lessens the likelihood of receiving preventive care, heightens the possibility of experiencing serious medication errors, increased risk of hospitalization, and results in poorer quality of life. <br />  <br />  It is important for health care organizations to develop strategies that can improve their health literacy, yet organizations often find it difficult to determine exactly what it means to be health literate. <em>How Can Health Care Organizations Become More Health Literate?: Workshop</em> defines a health literate health care organization as "an organization

Auteur : Committee on the Recommended Social and Behavioral Domains and Measures for Electronic Health Records, Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
Substantial empirical evidence of the contribution of social and behavioral factors to functional status and the onset and progression of disease has accumulated over the past few decades. Electronic health records (EHRs) provide crucial information to providers treating individual patients, to health systems, including public health officials, about the health of populations, and to researchers about the determinants of health and the effectiveness of treatment. Inclusion of social and behavioral health domains in EHRs is vital to all three uses. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act place new importance on the widespread adoption and meaningful use of EHRs. "Meaningful use" in a health information technology context refers to the use of EHRs and related technology within a health care organization to ac

Auteur : Paul R. Voss, Panel on Statistical Methods for Measuring the Group Quarters Population in the American Community Survey, Committee on National Statistics, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education & National Research Council
Genre : Sciences sociales
In the early 1990s, the Census Bureau proposed a program of continuous measurement as a possible alternative to the gathering of detailed social, economic, and housing data from a sample of the U.S. population as part of the decennial census. The American Community Survey (ACS) became a reality in 2005, and has included group quarters (GQ)-such places as correctional facilities for adults, student housing, nursing facilities, inpatient hospice facilities, and military barracks-since 2006, primarily to more closely replicate the design and data products of the census long-form sample. The decision to include group quarters in the ACS enables the Census Bureau to provide a comprehensive benchmark of the total U.S. population (not just those living in households). However, the fact that the ACS must rely on a sample of what is a small and very diverse population, combined with limited fundi

47 For the Public's Health - Committee on Public Health Strategies to Improve Health, Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice & Institute of Medicine
Auteur : Committee on Public Health Strategies to Improve Health, Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation asked the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to examine three topics in relation to public health: measurement, the law, and funding. IOM prepared a three book series-one book on each topic-that contain actionable recommendations for public health agencies and other stakeholders that have roles in the health of the U.S population.
For the Public's Health: Revitalizing Law and Policy to Meet New Challenges is the second in the For the Public Health's Series, and reflects on legal and public policy reform on three levels: first, laws that establish the structure, duties, and authorities of public health departments; second, the use of legal and policy tools to improve the public's health; and third, the health effects of laws and policies from other sectors in and outside government.
The book recommends that states enact legislation wit

Auteur : Committee on the Public Health Effectiveness of the FDA 510(k) Clearance Process, Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
Medical devices that are deemed to have a moderate risk to patients generally cannot go on the market until they are cleared through the FDA 510(k) process. In recent years, individuals and organizations have expressed concern that the 510(k) process is neither making safe and effective devices available to patients nor promoting innovation in the medical-device industry. Several high-profile mass-media reports and consumer-protection groups have profiled recognized or potential problems with medical devices cleared through the 510(k) clearance process. The medical-device industry and some patients have asserted that the process has become too burdensome and is delaying or stalling the entry of important new medical devices to the market.

At the request of the FDA, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) examined the 510(k) process. Medical Devices and the Public's Health exa

Auteur : Maria Hewitt, Roundtable on Health Literacy, Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
Implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 will result in significant changes to the U.S. health care system. Among its many provisions, the ACA will extend access to health care coverage to millions of Americans who have been previously uninsured. Many of the newly eligible health insurance consumers will be individuals of low health literacy, some speakers of English and others more comfortable using languages other than English. Health insurance terms such as "deductible," "co-insurance," and "out-of-pocket limit" are difficult to communicate even to those with moderate-to-high levels of health literacy and so health exchanges will face challenges as they attempt to communicate to the broader community. In addition to having to convey some of these basic, and yet complex, principles of insurance, state exchanges will be attempting to adapt to the many changes to enrollmen

Genre : Médecine
In 1992 world leaders met at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro to reaffirm the Declaration of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment that was established on June 16, 1972 in Stockholm. The meeting resulted in the adoption of Agenda 21 by the member states which is a framework for the transition to a more sustainable world. In 2012 the members gathered to assess and reaffirm the importance of progress towards the efforts of Agenda 21. 
 
 
In response to this the Institute of Medicine's (IOM's) Roundtable on Environmental Health Sciences, Research, and Medicine held a workshop to inform the policies that are discussed at the 2012 Earth Summit. The workshop, held in Woods Hole, Massachusetts on July 25-26, 2011, focused on the issue of sustainability and health as well as the linkages that are currently present between the two.
