    • T I Working Paper

      Transparency International (Transparency International, 2006)
      "In Africa, it is estimated that people live an average of six and a half years after infection. But if anti-retroviral drugs (ARVs) treatment is started at the appropriate time, life expectancy is doubled or tripled. Even with massive and rapid scaling-up of ARVs, however, treatment is still not available to all who need it and by June 2005 UNAIDS/WHO estimated that in sub-Saharan Africa, only 11 per cent of those who needed treatment were receiving ARVs. This means that even where ARVs are provided for free or at heavily subsidised rates through donor-funded programmes, requests for ‘topup payments’ are common and the pressure to corrupt is intense. A 29-year-old Nigerian father of three spoke for many across the continent in the 2005 civil society organisation statement to the OAU Summit of Heads of States: ‘The ARVs that come to the centre are not given to those of us who have come out to declare our status, but to those “big men” who bribe their way through, and we are left to suffer and scout round for the drug.’iv ‘Scouting around for the drug’ often involves buying ARVs from informal sources, which is highly problematic, as drug traders know little about the appropriate combinations, side effects or dosage. Substituting one drug for another depending upon availability means treatment is likely to become ineffective and result in the development of resistance to ARVs. Moreover, the product may be expired or fake. The great human need for ARV drugs, so often from people on low incomes, feeds the already extensive international market in counterfeit drugs, which appear to offer a cure at low cost. Faking ARVs is potentially far more profitable than faking other drugs, and finances the bribery of customs, regulatory and hospital officials.
    • T. C. Chao Re-visited

      Glüer, Winfried (Christian Study Centre on Chinese Religion and Culture, Chung Chi College, 2012)
      Interest in T .C. Chao focuses rightly on his contribution to a Chinese theology genuinely to be rooted in Chinese culture and society—a vital existential problem for him in his later years, sharpened by the political changes. Starting with impressions dating from a personal encounter with Chao in 1976, the article is based on the reception of Chao’s work in China during the following years, as well as some indications Chao himself gave us about his struggle for clarity in isolation during extremely difficult years—among these a fierce attack on Reinhold Niebuhr. Bishop Ting declared him a “patriot all his life” as well as a tragic figure. Chao may have wavered under pressure, as he was aware in critical self-reflection shortly before his death in 1979—a moving evidence of human endeavor, failure and hope which, however, does not impair the memory of a great theologian nor the legacy left to the Christian Church in China.
    • T. J. Chamberlain and C. A. Hall. Realized Religion: Research on the Relationship between Religion and Health. Philadelphia: Templeton Foundation, 2000. Pp. 239. $15.95 (Paper).

      Furlong, Beth (Rabbi Myer and Dorothy Kripke Center for the Study of Religion and Society, 2002)
      "This book presents and discusses research studies on the relationship of "realized religion" to one's well-being, whether one's mental health, physical health, overall attitude toward life, or marital satisfaction. In providing this synthesis of research studies for the reader the book appeals to both the lay and the health professional reader. [2] The authors, a psychologist and a theologian, provide a solid foundation for the book by beginning with a definition of "realized religion", addressing the historical tension between religion and science, and defining the various types of prayer. The goal of this book is to answer the question - does being religious enhance one's health? They have met that goal with an affirmative "yes." As a nursing professional reviewing this book, I look for two important features in all studies of health. First, the study should be put in the context of the current health care delivery system where all treatment and intervention modalities are being scrutinized from an outcome. Second, the study should adopt an evidence-based research perspective. The substance of this book meets both criteria and can be used by patients, health professionals and policymakers to improve the health of different population aggregates in this country. Also, from a health professional's viewpoint, an asset of the authors approach is their frequent assessment of the methodological soundness of research studies they consider. [3] In the first section of the book the authors define "realized religion" as present when "the essential elements of religion (faith and trust) are made operational by being brought into "concrete existence" (5). The book is strengthened because the authors discussed the historical tension between medicine and science and also the difficulty in conducting research studies in this area of health and religion that meet the rigorous empirical standards of traditional biological science. The authors forthrightly affirm that their analysis is being written from a Christian perspective of religion and cites studies of Christian populations in this country. They also acknowledge the claim that religion is harmful to one's health. Their introduction of the above issues in the early section of the book is positive and demonstrates their critical awareness and analysis of these issues."(pg 1)
    • Ta Hagia in the Epistle to the Hebrews

      Salom, A. P. (Andrews University, 1967)
      "Tb &yta (and its variants) occurs a total of ten times in the NT, all of them in the Epistle to the Hebrews1 A casual examination of translations and commentaries makes it evident that there is considerable confusion of expression (if not of thought) among translators and commentators in their handling of this word. Table I illustrates the variety offered by translations ranging from the KJV to Phillips. An attempt was made to choose a representative group, including the committee translation, the modern speech translation, and the paraphrase"
    • Ta limu al Maharat al Quraniyyah

      Anshori, Ahmad Suyuti (The State Islamic University (UIN) Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta, Indonesia, 2004)
      The Qur’an is the great miracle of the prophet Muhammad saw. The book is absolutely holy, far from any distortion as underwent by other holy books. The Qur’an book is the most authentic source book ever given to human civilization. Nowadays no scholars or linguists could imitate the beauty and the compact quality of the Qur’an. In addition, the Qur’an has also made a significant contribution to Arabic language and also its eternity. Thanks to the book, the Arabs became one community, and Muslims could unearth more knowledge. Therefore, the Qur’an has become the central point for Muslims from the time of the Prophet to our recent era. A number of religious scholars, researchers, and writers have focused their attention on the holy book, from ways how to read, write, memorize interpret and study its miracle. This writing elaborates on the ways how to teach skills about the Qur’an i.e., listening, writing, reading, and memorizing all in relation to various theories of education.

    • Ta-Nehisi Coates: un grito de rabia afroamericano [Ta-Nehisi Coates: a cry of rage African American]

      Deroeux, Iris (Fundación Friedrich Ebert (FES), 2015)
      "En Between the World and Me [Entre el mundo y yo], el ensayista Ta-Nehisi Coates se rebela contra la noción de raza que lo encierra en su identidad afroamericana, contra el racismo que está, según él, en el propio fundamento de Estados Unidos, contra la quimera del «sueño americano». Esta obra suscita polémica y controversias en Estados Unidos, donde cada semana un caso de brutalidad policial alimenta el debate sobre el racismo institucional."
    • Tabak: unsozial, unfair, umweltschädlich

      von Eichborn, Sonja (Brot für die Welt, 2015-06-15)
      Das Jahr 2015 ist ein entscheidendes Jahr für nachhaltige Entwicklung. Denn in zwischenstaatlichen Verhandlungen soll bis Juli 2015 ein Zielkatalog formuliert werden, der Hindernisse für nachhaltige Entwicklung aufzeigt und Ziele zu ihrer Umsetzung benennt, die Ziele für eine nachhaltige Entwicklung (Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs). Die vorliegende Broschüre zeigt anhand der Produktion und des Konsums von Tabak, wie sehr die einzelnen, momentan vorgeschlagenen Ziele miteinander verflochten sind.

    • Tabernacles

      Whitley, William Thomas, 1861-1947. (Baptist Historical Society, 1940)
      "The Great Fire of London destroyed many parish churches For official worship a few buildings used by the new Nonconforming ministers were seized, but these were chiefly outside. the City. Therefore, whereas a general law enacted that all future buildings within the walls must be in brick or stone, leave was given to put up temporary wooden buildings for worship. To that Biblical age it was obvious to call them Tabernacles. As the churches designed by Christopher Wren arose, theseTabernacles. disappeared."

    • Tables of reign lengths from the Hebrew court records

      Young, Rodger C. (Evangelical Theological Society, 2005)
      "The tables at the end of this article summarize the results of my previous three papers dealing with the chronology of the kingdoms of Judah and Israel. 1 These tables are meant to display the chronological data in a format that will make it easy for writers of Study Bibles or commentaries to incorporate the reign lengths and starting and ending years of the kings into their texts. The present paper avoids the various calculations that derived these dates (those calculations were done in the earlier papers) and seeks to focus on how to use the tables, and also on their importance for our understanding of the Scriptures and the doctrine of inspiration"
    • Taboo : The Journal of Culture and Education

      Steinberg, Shirley
      Taboo: The Journal of Culture and Education is an academic forum for the study of teaching and pedagogy that focuses on the relationship between education and its socio-cultural context. Drawing upon a variety of contextualizing disciplines including cultural studies, curriculum theorizing, feminist studies, the social foundations of education, critical pedagogy, multi/interculturalism, queer theory, and symbolic interactionism, Taboo is grounded on the notion of “radical contextualization.” The journal encourages papers from a wide range of contributors who work within these general areas. As its title suggests, Taboo seeks compelling and controversial submissions.

    • Tacit Trust Cannot be Violated

      Nayak, Dhanwanti (Forum for Medical Ethics Society, 2012-04)
      Moral Science is the report and recommendations on current ethical standards for the protection of human subjects in research funded by the American government. The report was made public in December 2011. It was commissioned by the president of the United States – a move catalysed by the recent exposure of the ethical violations by American scientists in the study of syphilis among people in Guatemala from 1946 to 1948. American researchers enrolled Guatemalan people in a research study with the intention of exposing them to sexually transmitted diseases without informing them or seeking consent. The human subjects were mentally ill people, prostitutes, soldiers, and people suffering from epilepsy as well as terminal diseases. Relevant information was deliberately concealed from the subjects, the public and others who may have questioned their methodology and intentions. As a result of the flawed design and execution of this research, hundreds of Guatemalan human subjects were exposed to syphilis and gonorrhoea.
    • Tackling Climate Change

      Arthur Waskow, Rabbi; Laur, Joe (KOLALEPH, 2014)
      "As a people who have endured millennia of harsh climatic and socio-political changes we join together to confront the danger of climate change. We remember that the Jewish tradition, in both Midrash (interpretation) and Kabbalah (mysticism), views the earth as a temple. We also remember that as Jews we look forward to redemption, a time when the seed of hope for a transformed society rooted in healing and justice, love and peace, is planted and blooms in every heart. As Jews committed to Renewal, ALEPH Alliance for Jewish Renewal, stands with Ohalah and The Shalom Center and call upon every Jew, as well as everyadam, earthling, to reflect upon the impact of climate change on this Holy Temple that is our Planet Earth, to turn and take action, large and small, toward a better future"
