Oman's new law on residence of expatriates
Oman enacted a new Law on Residence of Expatriates on May 1, 1995. The Law applies to most working foreigners in Oman. Expatriates, with certain exceptions such as heads of state and their families, include all residents without Omani nationality. Expatriates must register after entering the country. Important features of the new Law include the automatic right to secure residence for spouses and minor children and a ban on new working visas until two years after the cancellation of the previous visa. The Law's general goal is to enhance control of the expatriate labor force.

Residence in a poverty area or an underclass neighborhood are taken as socioeconomic status variables to analyze stage differences of breast or cervical cancer diagnosis. The underclass factor exhibited better predictor behavior than the poverty factor in explaining variations because it examined social and material variables that conditioned decisions to seek adequate health care services.

Triggers in the Growth of Cancer Cells
United States and British scientists have found strong evidence of a link between proteins promoting normal cell growth and those involved in cancer cells. Work on SIS and ERB-B may help understand cancer but not necessarily cure it. Research on other growth-factor receptors continues.
