An Outline History of East Asia to 1200
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

This is the second edition of the open access textbook that arose out of a course at the University of California, San Diego, called HILD 10: East Asia: The Great Tradition. The course covers what have become two Chinas, Japan, and two Koreas from roughly 1200 BC to about AD 1200. As we say every Fall in HILD 10: “2400 years, three countries, ten weeks, no problem.” The book does not stand alone: the teacher should assign primary and secondary sources, study questions, dates to be memorized, etc. The maps mostly use the same template to enable students to compare them one to the next.

The 1st edition is in the supplemental material tab.

Park Statue Politics: World War II Comfort Women Memorials in the United States
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Numerous academics have researched Japan’s dehumanizing comfort women system that, for decades, forced innocents into sexual slavery. Since 2010 a campaign has been in place to proliferate comfort women memorials in the United States. These memorials now span from New York to California and from Texas to Michigan. They recount only the Korean version of this history, which this text finds incomplete. They do not mention that, immediately following World War II, American soldiers also frequented Japan’s comfort women stations. They say nothing of how, to the present day, GIs continue to patronize Asian women and girls organized in brothels near their barracks. The Korean narrative also ignores the significant role that Koreans played in recruiting women and girls into the system. Intentionally or not, comfort women memorials in the United States promote a political agenda rather than transparency, accountability and reconciliation. This book explains, critiques, and expands on the competing state and civil society narratives regarding the dozen memorials erected in the United States since 2010 to honor female victims of the comfort women system established and maintained by the Japanese military from 1937 to 1945.

Phase 2 study of ceritinib in alectinib-pretreated patients with ALK-rearranged metastatic NSCLC in Japan: ASCEND-9
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"One of the key oncogenic drivers in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer is rearrangements to the anaplastic lymphoma kinase, or ALK, gene. Inhibitors of this gene have led to promising responses in patients, but the gene rearrangements complicate treatment efforts by facilitating the emergence of drug resistance. To help overcome this, researchers are turning to the drug ceritinib. Results from the recent phase 2 ASCEND-9 study showed that ceritinib can lead to effective treatment responses when similar drugs like alectinib stop working. Ceritinib is a selective oral ALK inhibitor that’s been approved for treating patients with metastatic ALK-positive non-small-cell lung cancer. The drug has demonstrated significant and meaningful improvements in progression-free survival in global phase 3 trials compared to chemotherapy. However, the efficacy and safety of ceritinib in patients who’ve grown resistant to the ALK inhibitor alectinib hasn’t been clear..."

Safety and tolerability of prexasertib in Japanese patients with advanced solid tumors

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"A recent report in the journal Cancer Science adds to the growing body of evidence demonstrating that prexasertib is a promising option for several types of cancer. Two prior clinical trials conducted in the United States showed prexasertib has both antitumor activity and an acceptable safety profile. A new clinical trial extends these findings by looking at how the drug performs in a new demographic of patients – namely, Japanese patients with advanced solid tumors. Prexasertib is a novel inhibitor of the protein checkpoint kinase 1 – a serine/threonine kinase that promotes DNA repair, controls initiation of DNA replication, and coordinates mitosis. Blocking the protein’s activity prevents cells from resolving replication stress and/or repairing DNA double-strand breaks, which leads to apoptosis. Inhibitors of checkpoint kinase 1 can augment the efficacy of DNA‐damaging chemotherapeutics, but they’re also being evaluated as single-agent therapies..."

Visualizing Cultures

Visualizing Cultures was launched at MIT in 2002 to explore the potential of the Web for developing innovative image-driven scholarship and learning. The VC mission is to use new technology and hitherto inaccessible visual materials to reconstruct the past as people of the time visualized the world (or imagined it to be).

Topical units to date focus on Japan in the modern world and early-modern China. The thrust of these explorations extends beyond Asia per se, however, to address "culture" in much broader ways—cultures of modernization, war and peace, consumerism, images of "Self" and "Others," and so on.

Wearing shoes indoors might be linked to COVID-19 mortality rate

It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"A new preprint reports one factor that might contribute to the deadliness of the COVID-19 pandemic: wearing shoes indoors. Researchers compared COVID-19 death rates between countries that follow the cultural practice of removing shoes indoors and those that do not and observed a distinct pattern. Those where removing shoes is customary showed a lower death rate on average. Interestingly, no significant differences were observed when countries were compared according to the number of COVID-19 cases. It could be that the lack of reliable, universal testing may obscure the true prevalence of the disease. More work is still needed to discount a number of confounding factors, such as differences in preventive measures enacted by different countries, but the correlation suggests that removing shoes indoors might help curb the devastation wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic..."

What’s for dinner? The foods that carbon-heavy households eat

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Meat is one of the most carbon-heavy foods we eat. Per gram of protein, producing beef, for example, requires 20 times the land and emits 20 times the emissions as growing beans. So steering away from meat is actually a great way to fight climate change, as it vastly shrinks our carbon footprint on the planet. But do households with small carbon footprints necessarily eat less meat than those with large footprints? A new study says no. The researchers behind the study recently examined data pertaining to diet and carbon footprint across 60,000 households in Japan, whose current diet and demographics, scientists believe, could set the trend for the rest of the world. Correlating food-spending patterns with the carbon intensity needed to produce different foods revealed that meat consumption was unrelated to the size of a household’s carbon footprint. Households with small, medium, or large footprints ate nearly identical amounts of meat..."
