    The willingness to view risk as part of daily life has vanished. A risk-averse mindset among environmental regulators engenders confusion between the ethics of intention and the ethics of consequence, leading to the elevation of the precautionary principle with unintended and often unfortunate outcomes. Environmental risk assessment is conservative, but the actual level of conservatism cannot be determined. High-end exposure assumptions and current toxicity criteria from the USEPA, based on linear extrapolation for carcinogens and default uncertainty factors for systemic toxicants, obscure the degree of conservatism in risk assessments. Ideally, one could choose a percentile of the target population to include within environmental standards, but this choice is complicated by the food, pharmaceutical and advertising industries, whose activities, inadvertent or not, often promote maladaptive and unhealthy lifestyle choices.

    James-Skinner-Kinesiology-Expert-Photo.jpg
    James Skinner, PhD specializes in the field of Exercise Physiology and is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Kinesiology at Indiana University. Dr. Skinner is an expert in the areas of Exercise Physiology, Exercise, , Kinesiology, Fitness, Personal Training, and Sports Medicine. He has investigated the relationships between exercise, training, genetics, and health for over 50 years.

    A former president of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), Dr. Skinner is one of five principal investigators of the HERITAGE Family Study on the role of genetics in the response of cardiovascular disease and diabetes risk factors after training. He has received the ACSM's Honor Award (the highest award in his field) and over $50 million in grants from various resources. In 2011, he received the Doctor Honoris Causa from Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary.

    Dr. Skinner has published over 290 articles, 6 books, and 19 educational DVDs. He has edited three editions of a textbook on exercise prescription for special populations (heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, elderly, obesity, chronic fatigue syndrome, pregnancy, etc.). He has lectured in English, French, German and Spanish in 60 countries.

    Many health clubs and personal trainers test clients to evaluate their fitness, prescribe training programs and evaluate the effects of an exercise program to see if there has been progress. Thus, testing is an important part of their service.

    There are presently no established national standards or laws about qualifications to be a personal trainer. As a result, people who work in health and fitness clubs have a wide variety of educational and professional backgrounds. There are "personal trainers" with no formal courses in physical education, exercise science or other related university degrees. If they want to be a certified personal trainer, there are online, mail-order certificates that require only payment to obtain a certificate to put on the wall. Some of these "certifying agencies" do not require an examination to test the knowledge of the applicants.

    A severe personal injury occurred as a 70-year-old client in a health club fell and broke his arm while doing an exercise to improve his balance. The injured client was the plaintiff in a suit in which the personal trainer was named as the defendant. I assisted the attorney representing the plaintiff.

    Resistance to conventional pesticides has been growing rapidly among all pests. Furthermore, there is increased public concern about the safety of conventional pesticides, and increased governmental restrictions have resulted in the need to identify new compounds that are safe and effective in controlling pests that are of concern to agriculture as well as to public and animal health. Biopesticides may aid in the control of such pests with fewer deleterious effects to the environment, people and animals.

    This volume and the contributed chapters therein are a result of the Natural Products for Pest Management symposium held at the 244th ACS National Meeting in Philadelphia, PA August 19-23, 2012 to honor the late Horace (Hank) Cutler and his contributions in the field of natural products chemistry. The symposium introduced recent discoveries and applications of natural products from insect, terrestrial plant, microbial, and synthetic sources for the management of insects, weeds, plant pathogenic microbes, and nematodes.

    As defined in the tree care industry, a "Hazard Tree" is a tree that poses a level of risk to people or property that exceeds the risk tolerance of the property owner or manger. This means that a tree that may be considered a hazard to one property owner may not be considered to be a hazard by another property owner. Thus, "hazard tree" is a somewhat subjective concept, used when making tree risk management decisions on a particular property, and is not a description of the inherent level of risk actually posed by a particular tree. In the tree care industry the term "hazard tree" is generally reserved to describe a tree that requires immediate removal, or other mitigating actions, to reduce the level of risk posed.

    exact will return results containing the group of words as, and in the order in which, you have typed them. If you search for "accident reconstruction" the filter will return results containing both words "accident reconstruction." If a profile contains words between the two words (like "accident investigation and reconstruction" then this filter will exclude this profile. This is the narrowest search you can perform.
