The late or tertiary stage of syphilis usually occurs after many years and can cause serious conditions, such as heart problems, paralysis and blindness.
The symptoms of syphilis can be difficult to recognise. A simple blood test can usually be used to diagnose syphilis at any stage. It can be treated with antibiotics, usually penicillin injections. When syphilis is treated properly, the later stages can be prevented.

HIV is most commonly passed on through unprotected sex. It can also be transmitted by coming into contact with infected blood - for example, sharing needles to inject steroids or drugs.
The HIV virus attacks and weakens the immune system, making it less able to fight infections and disease. There's no cure for HIV but there are treatments that allow most people to live a long and otherwise healthy life.
AIDs is the final stage of an HIV infection, when your body can no longer fight life-threatening infections.
Most people with HIV will look and feel healthy and have no symptoms. When you first develop HIV you may experience a flu-like illness with a fever, sore throat or rash. This is called a seroconversion illness.
A simple blood test is usually used to test for an HIV infection. Some clinics may also offer a rapid test using a finger prick blood test or saliva sample.

Trichomonas vaginalis
Trichomonas vaginalis (TV) is an STI caused by a tiny parasite. It can be easily passed on through sex and most people are unaware they are infected.
In women, TV can cause a frothy yellow or watery vaginal discharge which has an unpleasant smell, soreness or itching around the vagina, and pain when passing urine.
In men, TV rarely causes symptoms. You may experience pain or burning after passing urine, a whitish discharge, or an inflamed foreskin.

Culture in Sti College Sta. Rosa

...Status: Third year -Transferee July 09, 2012 Culture in STI College Santa Rosa This is my first semester in STI; a new school, new classmates, new friends and new professors. When I enrolled in this institution, I expect to gain more knowledge about the field I’ve chosen. I have to focus and be serious in one thing - study. In my former college, I felt pressured every time I study. I don’t see any enjoyment there so I loss my interest. Perhaps I just don’t fit in my course, but I didn’t give up. I keep trying to improve myself but it’s not enough, so I end up failing. I looked at the brighter side; I don’t let my failures ruin my dreams so I transferred to another school - STI. In my three weeks of staying in STI, I found out different cultures that the school has and compare it to my former school. In STI, one of the things that I'd noticed is that all of the professors I met are good-humored; comparing to my former school, most of my professors are serious-type and strict when it comes to studying, which pressures me. Another thing I observed is that STI has its own chapel where students, professors and other staff can go whenever they need it; in my former school, priest or pastors go there in the school every Friday and held their mass. Next that I notice is the grading system. In STI 60 is considered the lowest grade (which makes it 60-base) and is equivalent to 5.00; in my former school, 60 is the passing grade for minor subjects and 70 for major subjects......

...experiences suffering the actions of love directs them to moral redemption on a celestial level. Before facing redemption, characters such as Jean Valjean undergo dramatic life changes. In spite of the reasons Jean Valjean becomes a “fagot”, throughout the narration it is forever present that the main character is on a path to salvation (Hugo, p.66). It is in an expressed opinion that he is suffering from being devoid of human contact for over 19 years. On the other hand, some will see the desire to interact with another as a weakness worthy of living without. Moreover Jean Valjean is forced into emerging from the Galley’s of Toulon as an outcast of society not even wanted among “dogs” (Hugo, p.11). Meanwhile one can only wonder about the mental effects such depravation can cause. For this reason it is expressed that the character in question is disabled, suddenly confused about right and wrong. In addition to the main character, Marius is clouded by ignorance and anger undergoing a powerful transformation. (Hugo, 1961) Not long after finding out the truth about his father Marius blindly runs away from his problems. Equally important is the way Marius was able to re-examine his life due to the emergence of the Jondrette (Thenardier), forgetting briefly about the raging feud between himself and his grandfather. Therefore it is reasonable to say that the suffering of humanity is necessary to grow as a morally correct human begin. After discovering what keeps them venerable,......

What is the academic performance of the respondents in terms of general weighted average GWA (first semester S.Y. 2012 – 2013)? 3. What is the attitude of the respondents towards social networking? 4. Is there a significant relationship between social networking and the academic performance of the respondents? Introduction Social networking is a popular trend today, especially among college students. Facebook, Friendster, Twitter, Tumblr, Yahoo Messenger, and Skype are but a few examples of the relatively new phenomenon of online social networking. People of all ages are flocking to Internet and are signing up for social networking sites by the millions. Facebook, for example, boated 901 million monthly active users and more than 125 billion friend connections at the end of March (Key Facts, 2012). Social networking could, in general terms, be seen as a way of describing the modeling of everyday practices of social interaction, including those that take place within family structures, between friends, and in neighborhoods and communities (Merchant, 2012). With online social networking sites, these practices of social interaction are taken to technological level which allows for social......

...Effects of Having a Relationship on Academic Performance of Students In: English and Literature Effects of Having a Relationship on Academic Performance of Students Introduction Entering a new environment makes us feel curious, excited, afraid, nervous, and many other more. Just like entering college, it’s like entering a new chapter of our lives. One may feel excited in meeting new classmates and friends; others may feel afraid of committing a mistake, might feel nervous of meeting the instructors or professors , and may feel curious of seeing and discovering this out of his new environment. Studying is fun and exciting. This will be more interesting if we are working together with the ones who understands us and to whom we are comfortable with. This is what we called friends. This group of people may bring a positive and negative effect on us; it might also help or destruct on our studies. The effect will just be depending on how we will react and respond to what is happening around us. Friends are sometimes the ones who bring the curiousness out within us. They are the ones who usually let us try and discover things out for the first time. And out of this curiousness, one may find how it feels to have this kind of special someone on his side whenever he needs it.  Since studying is also stressful and tiring, we also wants to feel relax and stress free for some time. We wanted to have a moment where we can feel happy and loved. So, one may ought to find special......

Which allowed people to not be able to make as many mistakes because when you make a mistake typing the computer tells you what you need to fix? Everything mainly in the 20th century is digital these days like cellular phones, video chatting and also Face timing. Many people use these options rather than speaking or chatting with someone face to face. Also people use video chat when they can’t see someone that is far away from them this allows them to be able to see that person again. I feel like the 20th century is mainly about digital gadgets and what not because everywhere you go you see people on cellphones or on portable computers (I pads or netbooks). In the 20th century TV also has made information travel extremely fast because everyone watches TV these days and the word spreads around because of what people hear and see on the television.

...Interventions to Decrease the HIV/STI Risk Behaviors of African American Youth: Can We Control Future Trends? Beatrice Simiyu Capstone Project Dr. Bruce Johnson    Abstract As a result of the need to recognize successful human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and sexually transmitted infections (STI) interventions tailored for African American youth, a literature review of six HIV/STI randomized controlled trials interventions targeting African American youth conducted in the United States were evaluated. A comparative analysis was used; the settings, procedures and outcomes of the different interventions targeting African American youth were compared, contrasted and combined to ultimately identify trends that are likely to initiate and possibly sustain change in HIV/STI risk behaviors among African American youth who are a vulnerable group. Variables were evaluated by the various intervention impacts on reducing sexual risk behaviors by an indication of a delay in first sexual intercourse, a decline in the number of sex partners and frequency of sex, and increase in condom use and a reduction in positive STI outcomes. Outcomes were used to facilitate identification of public health strategies that might be most beneficial in targeting African American youth and pinpoint what manner current public health strategies neglects to focus on their needs. The research and practice implications of the findings imply that enhancing future HIV/STI targeting African American youth......

...radiation and gives skin its colour. The dermis is the inner layer that includes the following: Sweat glands – produce sweat that travels via sweat ducts to openings in the epidermis called pores. They play a role in temperature regulation. Hair follicles – are pits in which hairs grow. Hairs also play a role in temperature regulation. Sebaceous glands – produce sebum (an oil) to keep hairs free from dust and bacteria. Sebum and sweat make up the ‘surface film’. The subcutaneous layer under the dermis is made up of connective tissue and fat (a good insulator). Functions of the skin Provides a protective barrier against mechanical, thermal and physical injury and hazardous substances. · Prevents loss of moisture. · Reduces harmful effects of UV radiation. · Acts as a sensory organ (touch, detects temperature). · Helps regulate temperature. · An immune organ to detect infections etc. · Production of vitamin D. Skin cancer There are three main types of skin cancer, the most common of which is basal cell carcinoma, said Dr. Charles E. Crutchfield III, a clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Minnesota Medical School, and medical director of Crutchfield Dermatology. More than 2 million cases of this skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States every year, according to the AAD. This type of cancer is skin colored or has a slight pearl color to it. It rarely metastasizes (i.e., it rarely spreads to other parts of the body), but it can be very......

The Awareness of Sexually Transmitted Infections (Stis) Among Secondary School Students in Owerri Municipal Area of Imo State, Nigeria.

...of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) among Secondary School students in Owerri Municipal Area of Imo State, Nigeria. By A.M. Adewale. Department of Biology, Alvan Ikoku Federal University of Education, Owerri. Imo State, Nigeria. Email: And M.O. Ayodele. Kwara State College of Education (T), Lafiagi. Kwara State, Nigeria. Email: Introduction. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections that are transmitted through sexul contacts and the most common ones are hepatitis B, genital herpes, syphilis, chlamydia, gornorrhea, genital warts, pubic lice and HIV/AIDS (WHO, 2006). STDs are diseases that you get by having sex (intercourse, oral or anal) with someone who already has a sexually transmitted disease (Dehne and Riedner, 2005). Although there are diversity in culture and practices of different practices among different nations of the world, hthe attitude to human sexual relationships seems to be almost similar among all men. Moreover geographical barrier does no longer effectively separate interactions among the diverse people of the world. THe prevalence and pattern of infections are not different among all men who have similar diposition to acquiring diseases. Sexually transmitted infections and the causative agents are commonly prevalent prevalent in all parts of the world. According to Child Trends (2013), there are more than 25 kinds of STIs, acquired primarily through sexual......

Hiv/Sti Global Issue

... HIV/STI global issue Intravenous drug users (IDUs) are at an increased risk for blood-borne infections especially HIV due to sharing of contaminated syringes and needles. In china, an estimated 780,000 people were living in HIV/AIDS by the year 2011 and use of intravenous drug accounted for 28.4% of the reported cases. Syringe and needle exchange programs are aimed at allowing IDUs access sterile injecting equipment and safe disposal of used syringes and needles. The first official needle and syringe exchange program (NSEP) was established in 1983 in Amsterdam and these programs have since been widely established in both developing and developed world. Studies have shown that NSEPs effectively reduce HIV risk behaviors and HIV seroconversion among IDUs (Luo et al, 2015). According to Abdul-Quader et al (2013), out of an estimated global 16 million IDUs approximately 3 million are HIV positive and about 90% are at a great risk of HCV infection. Therefore, NSEPs have been implemented in cities, countries and regions worldwide in an effort to address HCV and HIV infections among the IDUs. Although these programs have shown to be beneficial in reducing factors influencing transmission of the viruses and risky injection behaviors, they have also been associated with negative effects among IDUs. Access to sterile syringes and needles is included by centers for disease control and prevention (CDC) list of evidence based HIV prevention interventions. In 2013, a panel comprising of...
