The Inaugural Annual Conference of the International Federation for Public History

About 5 years ago the National Council on Public History (U.S.) finally decided to expand internationally, and the IFPH/FIPH was formed.  There’s still time to attend this first of a kind conference and become part of history at the same time as working with it.  It will be held at the University of Amsterdam from the 23rd of October to the 25th of October, 2014. The cost is only 40 Euros (60 Euros starting Sept 1). Here is the link to the conference site. Here is the link to the IFPH site. Here is the link to “What is Public History” at the NCPH site.

Hsiu Chen Tseng et al., “Tea-Drinking Habit among New University Students: Associated Factors,” Kaohsiung Journal of Medical Sciences 30, no. 2 (2014): 98–103. “Multiple logistic regression analysis showed the following factors were significant predictors of tea drinking: postgraduate students (p < 0.001), coffee drinking (p < 0.001), alcohol drinking (p < 0.001), minor mental morbidity (p = 0.009), poorer sleepers (p = 0.037), higher body mass index (p = 0.004), and sugar-sweetened beverage consumption (p < 0.001). Our data showed that the tea-drinking habit was correlated with higher body mass index, which was contrary to the findings of a previous study.”
