EMERGING TRENDS IN DATA UTILISING LONGITUDINAL ANALYSIS

About This Event

In this paper, the authors are exploring emerging trends in data utilising longitudinal analysis.Longitudinal studies are typically observational studies wherein a participant's outcomes, and possible treatments or exposures, are collected at multiple times on the same individual. These studies have no limit on the timespan and as such, can last up to several decades. Though shorter time frames are not recommended, the key is for the study to extend beyond a singular time point, ideally three or more[1]. Conducting longitudinal studies are beneficial as it allows one to follow subjects in real time, which allows researchers to have a better understanding of the sequence of events[1].

Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy - Preparing your Target Using Psychohistoriography: A Jamaican perspective

In recent years there has been a resurgence in interest in psychedelic assisted psychotherapy (PAP) [1]. Initial scientific research into the utilization of these compounds were eventually suspended due to concerns related to increasing recreational use of psychedelics and their association with the rise of the “counterculture movement” in the United States [2]. However, the use of psilocybin and other psychedelics have shown promise in the treatment of mental illnesses. The efficacy of this modality of treatment has been demonstrated through clinical trials and other studies in the management of a number of mental illnesses, including some treatment resistant cases [3].

USING SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURES IN THE PACIFIC NINÕ ZONES TO PREDICT DRY WEATHER DURING THE OPTIMAL GROWING SEASON IN PORTLAND

A major challenge facing farmers in Portland, Jamaica is dry weather, especially during the optimal growing season from April through August. During this five-month period Portland suffered from severe dry spells during the years 2014, 2015, 2018 and 2020. A second challenge is the damage to crops and land as well as loss of livestock due to tropical storms or hurricanes and the associated flooding. Portland farmers have suffered losses due to an active hurricane season numerous times and most recently in the years 2004, 2005, 2012 and 2020.

Comparative Nutritional and Molecular Characterization of Themeda arguens (Piano Grass) from Central Jamaica

Piano grass (Themeda arguens), reputed to have been introduced to Jamaica as packing material in an imported piano1 . There are about 27 varieties of this highly invasive grass/weed worldwide[1] and in Jamaica the species previously identified as Themeda arguens is of concern as it has progressively taken over lawns, pastures and roadsides [1]. The grass is of particular concern to livestock farmers due to its highly invasive and aggressive nature and the concomitant negative effect on livestock productivity, especially during its annual seeding period (November/December – April) [2], when the palatability of the grass diminishes significantly and the seed awns can cause severe damage to the mouth when consumed, and feet of livestock [2], sometimes requiring veterinary intervention.
