The scenic Sea to Sky Highway, road to the 2010 winter Olympics, has historically been vulnerable to landslides. More than 18% of Canada's total landslide related deaths (>600) have occurred along this corridor. Over the last 154 years, we...

Abundant geological evidence has been found for one or more large earthquakes on the Cascadia subduction zone about 300 years ago. The earthquakes produced severe shaking, crustal subsidence, and large tsunamis along the Pacific coast from Vancouv...

A large landslide flowed down Hummingbird Creek to Mara Lake (British Columbia, Canada) in July 1997. Archival research and historical map and air photo investigations suggested that other flood or debris flow events have occurred since the mid-19...

In this paper, I discuss the parallels between responses to syphilis in nineteenth century Britain and HIV/AIDS in contemporary Africa. In each case, an incurable disease connected with sexual behaviour aroused fear, stigmatisation and moralistic...
