TL;DR: In this paper, Havelock Ellis made use of the Dictionary of National Biography (DNB) for a comprehensive view of the men and women who have built up English civilisation, and in order to ascertain the composition of these elements of intellectual ability which the British Islands have contributed to the world, and as a help to the study of the nature of genius generally, he has freely made use to this monumental work.
Abstract: MR. HAVELOCK ELLIS points out that owing to the completion of the “Dictionary of National Biography” it has at last become possible to obtain a comprehensive view of the men and women who have built up English civilisation, and in order to ascertain the composition of these elements of intellectual ability which the British Islands have contributed to the world, and as a help to the study of the nature of genius generally, he has freely made use of this monumental work. The author took as a basis of eminence those to whom af least three pages are devoted in the “Dictionary,” but he also included some about whom less was said if they had shown intellectual ability of a high order, and conversely he eliminated those about whom much was written if they did not possess intellectual ability. The final selection yelded 975 British men of a high degree of intellectual eminence and 55 women. These 1030 persons are discussed from various points of view, and in appendices lists are given of their names, their activities, their places of origin, the occupation of their fathers, and other data.A Study of British Genius.By Havelock Ellis.

TL;DR: The authors analyzes the movement of cultural meaning theoretically, showing both where cultural meaning is resident in the contemporary North American consumer system and the means by which this meaning is transferred from one location in this system to another.
Abstract: Cultural meaning in a consumer society moves ceaselessly from one location to another. In the usual trajectory, cultural meaning moves first from the culturally constituted world to consumer goods and then from these goods to the individual consumer. Several instruments are responsible for this movement: advertising, the fashion system, and four consumption rituals. This article analyzes the movement of cultural meaning theoretically, showing both where cultural meaning is resident in the contemporary North American consumer system and the means by which this meaning is transferred from one location in this system to another.

TL;DR: The National Institutes of Health asked the Institute of Medicine to assess current knowledge of the health status of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender populations; to identify research gaps and opportunities; and to outline a research agenda to help NIH focus its research in this area.
Abstract: At a time when lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals—often referred to under the umbrella acronym LGBT—are becoming more visible in society and more socially acknowledged, clinicians and researchers are faced with incomplete information about their health status. While LGBT populations often are combined as a single entity for research and advocacy purposes, each is a distinct population group with its own specific health needs. Furthermore, the experiences of LGBT individuals are not uniform and are shaped by factors of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geographical location, and age, any of which can have an effect on health-related concerns and needs. While some research about the health of LGBT populations has been conducted, researchers still have a great deal to learn. To help assess the state of the science, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) asked the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to assess current knowledge of the health status of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender populations; to identify research gaps and opportunities; and to outline a research agenda to help NIH focus its research in this area. A committee of experts was convened by the IOM to consider this task, and its findings are presented in its report, The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People: Building a Foundation for Better Understanding.

TL;DR: This paper studied the effects of acculturation on attitudinal familism in 452 Hispanics compared to 227 white non-Hispanics, and found that despite differences in the national origin of Hispanics, Mexican-, Central-and Cuban-Americans reported similar attitudes toward the family indicating that family is a core characteristic in the Hispanic culture.
Abstract: This investigation studied the effects of acculturation on attitudinal familism in 452 Hispanics compared to 227 white nonHispanics. Despite differences in the national origin of Hispanics, Mexican-, Central -and Cuban-Americans reported similar attitudes toward the family indicating that familism is a core characteristic in the Hispanic culture. Three basic dimensions of familism were found: Familial obligations, perceived support from the family and family as referents. The high level of perceived family support, invariable despite changes in acculturation, is the most essential dimension of Hispanic familism. Familial obligations and the perception of the family as referents appear to diminish with the level of acculturation, but the perception of family support doesn't change. Although these two dimensions of familism decrease concurrently with the level of acculturation, the attitudes of persons with high levels of acculturation are more familistic than those of white nonHispanics.
