We actually had lunch with Chairman Kudol while we were in Coron. A very low key and nice guy and his english was fairly good too. 🙂 He was able to tell us a little about Coron Island and what processes it would take to do a larger documentary about the Tagbanua there. Something like seven permits and then approval from the elders – plus a large sum of money. A process that would take at least a year or two. 🙂 It does seem like the Tagbanua on Coron Island are serious to a degree about managing everything that is going on throughout the island. It seems this is the same process for researchers, or even NGO workers wanting to give aid of any sort. At any rate, Kudol was very informative and it was a pleasure to meet him.
Helicobacter pylori (yellow), a common bacterium that lives in the stomach lining, increases the risk of stomach cancer (brown cells) and peptic ulcers. But over time H. pylori can reduce stomach acid and acid reflux, which may help fend off esophageal cancer. The microbe also appears to help protect us from allergies and asthma. Some scientists suspect that the dramatic increase in those conditions in the industrialized world could be related to the decreasing frequency of H. pylori in our stomachs, which is partly due to high doses of antibiotics in childhood.
Atavism is a key term in Joseph Schumpeter 's explanation of World War I in twentieth-century liberal Europe . He defends the liberal international relations theory - that an international society built on commerce will avoid war because of war's destructiveness and comparative cost. His reason for World War I is termed "atavism", in which he asserts that senescent governments in Europe (those of the German Empire , Russian Empire , Ottoman Empire , and Austro-Hungarian Empire ) pulled the liberal Europe into war, and that the liberal regimes of the other continental powers did not cause it. He used this idea to say that liberalism and commerce would continue to have a soothing effect in international relations, and that war would not arise between nations which are connected by commercial ties.
