Topic Pollution and Development
The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, is located in the southeast corner of the Caribbean Sea off the coast of Venezuela, is influenced seasonally by floodwaters of the Orinoco River. Because of the direct influence of the Orinoco plume, Trinidad has little coral reef development compared to its more offshore sister island of Tobago. Discharges from the Orinoco River influence Tobago’s coral reefs during the wet season with lower salinity and higher turbidity floodwaters, which reduce light availability needed for coral growth. This chronic, seasonal stress has long affected Tobago’s coral reefs but has not prevented the development of massive and biologicaly diverse coral reef formations, such as those found at Buccoo Reef and Culloden Reef. Also the rate of the Air Pollution for trinidad and tobago is 75.00 ，Drinking Water Pollution and Inaccessibility is 55.00 Dissatisfaction with Garbage Disposal is 55.00 ，Dirty and Untidy is 65.00 Noise and Light Pollution is 70.00 Water Pollution is 85.00 Dissatisfaction to Spend Time in the City is 60.00 Dissatisfaction with Green and Parks in the City is 62.50. So you can see there are not so many pulltion in trinidad and tobago.
topic obisite and over weight
To evaluate distribution of body mass index (BMI) and subcutaneous fat in children of African or Indian subcontinent descent living in Trinidad and Tobago. A cross-sectional survey was carried out in a nationally representative sample of 66 government schools. Measurements were made of children's heights, weights, triceps and subscapular skinfold thicknesses. Data were analysed by sex and ethnic group and comparison was made with international standards for overweight and obesity and with British (1990) reference curves for BMI. Data were analysed for 5688/6731 (85%) eligible children including 1934 Afro-Trinidadian, 1689 Indo-Trinidadian, and 1794 of mixed ethnicity. Afro-Trinidadian and mixed children were taller, but Indo-Trinidadian children were shorter than reference. Values for BMI were lower than reference: mean standard deviation score (SDS), (95% confidence interval) Afro-Trinidadian –0.34 (–0.39 to –0.28), Indo-Trinidadian –1.32 (–1.39 to –1.25), mixed –0.67 (–0.74 to –0.61). Overall 486 (8.5%, 7.8 to 9.3%) of children were overweight and 138 (2.4%, 2.0 to 2.9%) were obese. Triceps skinfold thickness values were lower than reference (–0.45, –0.48 to –0.42 SDS) but subscapular skinfold thicknesses were higher (0.45, 0.43 to 0.47 SDS). Higher BMI were associated with higher BMI in the child's parents, higher reported birthweight, older age of the child's mother, smaller family size, and with higher maternal educational attainment.
Overweight was prevalent and distribution of subcutaneous fat was central. Work is needed to determine whether these findings are associated with adult patterns of fat distribution and metabolic abnormalities.
