Violence

Violence is an extreme form of aggression, such as assault, rape or murder.

Violence has many causes, including frustration, exposure to violent media, violence in the home or neighborhood and a tendency to see other people’s actions as hostile even when they’re not. Certain situations also increase the risk of aggression, such as drinking, insults and other provocations and environmental factors like heat and overcrowding.

Adapted from the Encyclopedia of Psychology

DNA tests prove suspected wolf hybrid Capone is just a dog #wolf,

DNA tests prove suspected wolf hybrid Capone is just a dog

AURORA, Colo. — The family fighting to get their pet back from Aurora Animal Control says DNA tests prove their dog is not a wolf hybrid.

“We got some good news last night,” Tracy Abbato said Sunday. “Capone is not wolf at all. He doesn’t have an ounce of wolf in him.”

The FOX31 Problem Solvers were first to report the case, which has made headlines around the world.

The Abbato family adopted Capone from the Adams County Animal Shelter 10 years ago. Shelter officials had classified him as a German shepherd mix. The family’s veterinarian said the same thing.

But when Capone escaped from the Abbato family’s yard in February, Aurora Animal Control picked him up and officials classified him as part wolf based on his mannerisms, behavior and physical characteristics.

Officials refused to return Capone to his family until DNA tests could prove whether he is a wolf hybrid. Capone has been held at the shelter for almost five weeks.

On top of that, Abbato faces violations of animal running at large, keeping an aggressive animal and keeping an exotic/wild animal.

The family is fighting the case, but when they went to court last week, the hearing was delayed until Wednesday.

Now, Abbato says the DNA test results prove what she knew all along.

“I want everyone to know he is not a wolf at all,” Abbato said. “We all knew it from the start.”

Even so, Abbato will have to wait a few more days to bring Capone back home.

“Because of pending litigation, we have to wait for the judge to make the decision,” Abbato said.

That decision could come at the hearing scheduled for Wednesday.

“Poor guy. I don’t know what he was going through in there, but I’m sure he’ll be so excited to come home and see us and his furry brothers,” Abbato said. “I just want him to come home now. It’s time for him to come home.”

Abbato said the battle has been emotionally draining, but she’s been receiving encouragement from dog lovers around the country and around the world.

“It’s heartbreaking because he does not understand what is going on,” she said. “If he knew, he would know he has hundreds of thousands of people supporting and fighting for him to get home.”

Abbato said she was stunned by how many people reached out to support her family.

“I knew people loved dogs, but I didn’t know this many people love dogs,” she said. “It’s amazing. Look at our petition and GoFundMe. There so many more dog lovers out there than I thought.”

More than 21,000 people had signed the Change.org petition as of Sunday afternoon.

What Is Health Economics? Master of Health Science in Health Economics (MHS)

What Is Health Economics?

Health Economics is an applied field of study that allows for the systematic and rigorous examination of the problems faced in promoting health for all. By applying economic theories of consumer, producer and social choice, health economics aims to understand the behavior of individuals, health care providers, public and private organizations, and governments in decision-making.

From economic modeling to policy analysis, I am confident that the skills I have gained throughout the year will stay with me throughout my life. I am beyond lucky to have been at this incredible school alongside inspiring classmates, learning from professors who are true experts in this field. The MHS in Health Economics here at Hopkins is by far the best thing I could have done to start my career.

Analyst, Healthcare Value Analytics

The MHS in Health Economics
Program at Hopkins

Health economics is used to promote health through the study of health care providers, hospitals and clinics, managed care and public health promotion activities. Health economists apply the theories of production, efficiency, disparities, competition, and regulation to better inform the public and private sector on the most efficient, or cost-effective, and equitable course of action. Such research can include the economic evaluation of new technologies, as well as the study of appropriate prices, anti-trust policy, optimal public and private investment, and strategic behavior.

Health economics can also be used to evaluate how certain social problems, such as market failure and inequitable allocation of resources, can impact on the health of a community or population. Health economics can then be used to directly inform government on the best course of action with regards to regulation, national health packages, defining health insurance packages and other national health programs.

Faculty of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School are currently conducting research on a wide variety of topics including the impact of health care, health insurance and preventative services on health lifestyles as well as providing research and advice to governments around the globe to enable a more effective and equitable allocation of resources. Further information on faculty retreat can be found on individual faculty research pages.
