The Trobrianders of Papua New Guinea by Annette B. Weiner
I am an anthropologist and a sociologist, and I read this book right in the beginning of my degree. I enjoyed it. I thought that although the writing was simple, the book was quite revealing, concise, and assertive.
Now I am doing my PhD and after reading it again my attitude towards it has changed a bit. I still think The Trobrianders of Papua New Guinea is a good ethnography but I also think that is incomplete for there are issues that need further elaboration; for example, Weiner should have given more attention to Kula because that is a crucial aspect of Trobriander Society. At the same time, I believe the way in which the ethnography was written was not particularly inspiring. It is good, however, it lacks passion. At least that is my perception.
Overall, it is a interesting book, easy to read, informative, and engaging. I recommed it to those who are just starting reading ethnographies....

A team at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine conducted several studies 1,2 to determine if vaccines can cause changes in the immune system of dogs that might lead to life-threatening immune-mediated diseases. They obviously conducted this research because concern already existed. It was sponsored by the Haywood Foundation which itself was looking for evidence that such changes in the human immune system might also be vaccine induced. It found the evidence. The vaccinated, but not the non-vaccinated, dogs in the Purdue studies developed autoantibodies to many of their own biochemicals, including fibronectin, laminin, DNA, albumin, cytochrome C, cardiolipin and collagen.
This was not a survey. These were the questions:. When I visit my vet for check ups and refuse the annual shots, I am made to feel that I am an irresponsible pet owner. The lady has now received a letter from her vet telling her that unless she vaccinates annually, she will no longer be eligible for the PDSA scheme. She received compensation from the vaccine fund here in the USA.
