Organ Trafficking & Transplant Tourism

leave a comment »

A subset of human trafficking, organ trafficking and transplant tourism are significant concerns around the globe. And while they’re not discussed to the same extent as sexual exploitation and forced child labor, quite a bit’s available on the subject. It initially caught my eye when I noticed Harvard’s Initiative to Stop Human Trafficking had an archived webcast available on their site addressing the issue. You can link to it, along with podcasts, articles, and other resources after the jump.

Integrating Injury & Violence Prevention

leave a comment »

STIPDA, ASTHO, and NACCHO have several archived injury prevention webcasts, 2 of which might appeal: Integrating Injury and Violence Prevention with Maternal and Child Health Programs, and Integrating Injury and Violence Prevention with Healthy Again Initiatives. They are free to access–the archive site also includes a variety of supporting articles and other materials for the maternal-child session that are probably worth perusing, particularly for those of you working in the area of abusive head trauma (scroll to mid-page to find them).

Digital Safety: Cyberstalking

leave a comment »

I love when readers (especially readers abroad) send me links I never would have run across otherwise: this summer in London, the UK hosted their inaugural digital safety conference, which “brought together thought leaders, policy makers, legal professionals, law enforcement agencies, government representatives, educators, industry leaders and those committed to protecting civil liberties to consider the health, reputation and environment of the digital world”.

Weekly Wrap-Up @ the Sustainability Blog

with one comment

Sorry for the lack of wrap-up last week–things were fairly hectic and the Sustainability site got a bit neglected. We’re back this week, though, and you’ll find some good stuff there:

Today’s a call day for me, and I’m stuck in my windowless office at the DOVE Program. But that may be okay, because it is a cold and rainy day here in the CLE. Hope it’s a bit more hospitable wherever you are…

Statistics and Juries

leave a comment »

Today’s post is an incredibly wonky one–many of you will bail right off the bat, and of those of you who decide to check out this video, several of you won’t make it past the 2 minute mark. So what is the fascinating offering I’m posting? It’s actually a session from TED that I find to be really interesting: how statistics fool juries. If you don’t feel like you can commit to the full video, skip ahead to the 14 minute mark, where the reason for my posting the video becomes clear.

Weekly Wrap-Up @ the Sustainability Blog

leave a comment »

It was a busy week at the sustainability site. I’m happy to return with a new Friday Q&A, this time from IAFN Past-President, Stacey Mitchell. You can read her fantastic responses to the questionnaire here. Also this week:

  • A resource many of you know from this site, The Ultimate Educator and tools for creating courses for adult learners
  • One of those simple, but amazing tools that can distill down the overwhelming into the doable: Performance Vistas’s Decision Selection Matrix
  • A webinar (free!) over at the Goodman Center focusing on their recent survey on using online technologies instead of in-person meetings and conferences–they’ll be discussing the good, the bad, and I’m sure, the ugly during the 1-hour event (love their stuff, BTW).

That’s it for me–I’m knocking off early to spend time with my kiddo after being gone all week. Enjoy your weekend!
