This study investigates the health of Cook Islands men living in Tokoroa (New Zealand). Cook Islands men first arrived to the township after the 1950s, following the opening of the local Kinleith Sawmill. Jobs were readily available as a workforce was required to service the timber industry. The late 1960s to the early 1980s saw waves of Cook Islands families migrate into Tokoroa. However, by the late 1980s, the trend had reversed with many Cook Islands families out-migrating in search of employment. Kinleith had undergone a series of restructuring, consequently ending low-skilled labouring positions predominantly occupied by Cook Islands men. Redundancies were issued, and of the 1200 men made redundant, 800 were Cook Islands men. This event would impact on Cook Islands families, mentally, physically and socially - the only real options was to leave Tokoroa or face the prospect of long term unemployment (which did transpire throughout the 1990s). The study recommends Cook Islands men work together, and take more responsibility for their health and be role models and leaders within their families, homes and communities.
This study investigates the health of Cook Islands men in the township of Tokoroa, New Zealand. Cook Islands men first arrived in Tokoroa during the 1950s, with the opening of the local Kinleith Sawmill. A workforce was required for the growing timber industry thus waves of Cook Islands families flowed into the township over the subsequent decades. However, by the late 1980s, Kinleith had undergone significant restructuring consequently, ending low skilled labour predominantly occupied by Cook Islands men. Of the 1200 workers given redundancy, 800 were Cook Islands men. The event was to impact heavily on Cook Islands families in Tokoroa over the next decade, with families migrating out of the township in search of employment. Families remaining behind were now faced with the prospect of long term unemployment,and health issues resulting from their sedentary lifestyle - obesity, diabetes, depression and low self esteem. The study recommends Cook Islands men need to take on more responsibility of their health, and provide leadership within their families and communities.

The promotion of a healthy pregnancy and safe childbirth is a major goal of most, if not all, health care systems. Malta and Gozo have been monitored continuously thanks to the National Obstetric Information System and its predecessor projects. The data for a ten year period (1999-2008) was analysed for Malta and Gozo. The data was also analysed to compare with data collected from other similarly populated islands or states such as Gibraltar, Liechtenstein, the Shetland Islands and the Faroe Islands. The healthcare centres available in many small islands such as Gozo, Gibraltar, Liechtenstein, the Shetland Islands and the Faroe Islands may benefit from a detailed investigation into possible reforms to improve on current systems of care. Further data and research is needed to ensure that the most effective strategies for safe motherhood are integrated into essential service packages.
The focus of this research is on seventeenth-century witchcraft in the Chesapeake. To date, there has not been an in depth study witchcraft in the early Southern colonies. Most studies of American colonial witchcraft tend to be either on the 1692 witchcraft hysteria of Salem. While both regions were comprised of English colonies, there were profound differences between the Northern and Southern colonists. These disparities resulted in dramatically different ways each group perceived the nature of witchcraft, and the way they dealt with it. To aid in the understanding of the place of witchcraft in the Southern worldview, the use of the traditional Puritan model of witchcraft as a heresy has been abandoned in favor of an English seventeenth-century model that holds witchcraft as a practice. Because this study covers criminal and civil trials over eighty years, it allows for a tracing of the evolution of the beliefs in the Chesapeake. As the social, political, and economic conditions on the frontier gave way to an emerging gentrified society, witches and their place in the Chesapeake were pushed to the background of a very colorful, eccentric society.
