Juvenile Salmon Program – Discovery Islands and Johnstone Strait – 2015–2017

Hakai Institute
Fall 2017 Version 1.0 Background: The Hakai Institute Juvenile Salmon Program was launched in the spring of 2015 in a collaborative partnership with UBC, SFU, Salmon Coast, Pacific Salmon Foundation, and DFO. The program operates in the Discovery Islands and Johnstone Strait (Figure 1) and thus provides information on the health of juvenile Fraser River salmon after passage through: 1) Strait of Georgia – stratified high plankton biomass zone; and 2) Discovery Islands & Johnstone...

High-resolution record of 8-m seawater CO2 content entering Fanny Bay Oysters in Baynes Sound, British Columbia, Canada from March 2017 to November 2017

Hakai Institute
Baynes Sound, located on the northwestern side of the Strait of Georgia, has been a site for shore-based and high-resolution measurement of surface seawater CO2 content since March 2017. Measurements of in situ temperature, salinity, and CO2 partial pressure are made near-continuously from a seawater intake line at the Taylor Shellfish facility Fanny Bay Oysters with an intake 300 m from shore and at a depth of 8 m in Mud Bay, a peripheral bay...

Performance of Steel Fiber-Reinforced Concrete Beams Under Shock Tube Induced Blast Loading

Steve Castonguay
This thesis focuses on the dynamic and static behavior of steel fiber-reinforced concrete (SRFC) beams. As part of this study a total of eighteen (18) beams are tested, including fourteen (14) SFRC beams, and a companion set of four (4) beams built without fibers. Seven (7) of the beams are tested under quasi-static (slowly applied) loading with the remaining eleven (11) beams tested under simulated blast loading using the University of Ottawa shock-tube. The variables...

Derivation of a Clinical Decision Tool for Predicting Adverse Outcomes Among Emergency Department Patients with Lower Gastrointestinal Bleeding

Rosa Ramaekers
Lower gastrointestinal bleeding (LGIB) can result in serious adverse events. Appropriate risk stratification of LGIB patients can improve their care. Previous risk scores to identify severe LGIB patients have limitations, therefore we developed clinical decision tool to accurately identify LGIB patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) who are at risk for 30-day adverse outcomes that would overcome these limitations. We conducted a health records review and compared two methods of regression analysis on our...

L'ère progressiste et les hygiénistes sociaux : la médecine, les maladies vénériennes et la prostitution à New York, 1900 à 1920.

Eric Fecteau
Cette thèse porte sur le mouvement d’hygiène sociale à New York et leur lutte contre les maladies vénériennes durant l’ère progressiste. Après une période d'essoufflement dans la lutte contre la prostitution durant la deuxième moitié du 19e siècle, l’ère progressiste apporta un renouvèlement important aux actions contre la prostitution. En 1905, la première organisation d’hygiène sociale américaine, un mouvement de médecins et de réformateurs qui tenta de mettre fin à l’épidémie de maladies vénériennes qui...

Fortress Mountain Snow Laboratory, Blowing Snow Camera Measurements, and Wind Velocity Data

Nikolas Aksamit & John Pomeroy
These data files include airborne blowing snow density measurements using a portable highspeed camera and 432 nm wavelength laser light plane apparatus. Blowing snow measurements were taken in the first 30 mm above the snow surface.

Operationalizing mHealth to improve patient care: a qualitative implementation science evaluation of the WelTel texting intervention in Canada and Kenya

Kevin L Bardosh, Melanie Murray, Antony M Khaemba, Kirsten Smillie & Richard Lester
Background: Mobile health (mHealth) applications have proliferated across the globe with much enthusiasm, although few have reached scale and shown public health impact. In this study, we explored how different contextual factors influenced the implementation, effectiveness and potential for scale-up of WelTel, an easy-to-use and evidence-based mHealth intervention. WelTel uses two-way SMS communication to improve patient adherence to medication and engagement in care, and has been developed and tested in Canada and Kenya. Methods: We...

Background: Parents have the potential to substantively influence their child’s physical activity. This study identified the parenting practices of US and Canadian parents to encourage or discourage their 5-12 year-old child’s physical activity and to examine differences in parenting practices by country, parental sex, age of child, and income. Methods: The sample consisted of 134 US and Canadian parents (54.5% US; 60.4% female) recruited from a web-based panel by a polling firm. The parents answered open-ended...

A comprehensive review of HIV/STI prevention and sexual and reproductive health services among sex Workers in Conflict-Affected Settings: call for an evidence- and rights-based approach in the humanitarian response

Alyssa Ferguson, Kate Shannon, Jennifer Butler & Shira M Goldenberg
Background: While the conditions in emergency humanitarian and conflict-affected settings often result in significant sex work economies, there is limited information on the social and structural conditions of sex work in these settings, and the impacts on HIV/STI prevention and access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services for sex workers. Our objective was to comprehensively review existing evidence on HIV/STI prevention and access to SRH services for sex workers in conflict-affected settings globally. Methods:...
