New Hebrides

New Hebrides the New Hebrides Condominium and named for the Hebrides Scottish archipelago, was the colonial name for the island group in the South Pacific Ocean, now Vanuatu. Native people had inhabited the islands for three thousand years before the first Europeans arrived in 1606 from a Spanish expedition led by Portuguese navigator Pedro Fernandes de Queirós; the islands were colonised by both the British and French in the 18th century, shortly after Captain James Cook visited. The two countries signed an agreement making the islands an Anglo-French condominium that divided the New Hebrides into two separate communities: one Anglophone and one Francophone; this divide continues after independence, with schools teaching in either one language or the other, with different political parties. The condominium lasted from 1906 until 1980, when the New Hebrides gained their independence as the Republic of Vanuatu; the New Hebrides was a rare form of colonial territory in which sovereignty was shared by two powers and France, instead of just one.

Under the Condominium there were three separate governments – one French, one British, one joint administration, elected after 1975. The French and British governments were called residencies, each headed by a resident appointed by the metropolitan government; the residency structure emphasised dualism, with both consisting of an equal number of French and British representatives and administrators. Every member of one residency always had an exact mirror opposite number on the other side who they could consult; the symmetry between the two residencies was exact. The joint government consisted of both European officials, it had jurisdiction over the postal service, public radio station, public works and censuses, among other things. The two main cities of Luganville and Port Vila had city councils, but these did not have a great deal of authority. While initial settlers were predominantly British living in Australia, the late 19th century saw an influx of French. Within a few decades, there were twice as many French on the islands as there were British, prompting a multitude of petitions to cede power to either the French or the British.

Despite this, the two nations came together to form a condominium, a specialised form of government where both nations would have all of their own administrations and jointly rule the islands. The only place they came together was in the Joint Court; as Mander describes, "The Joint Court was the key to the situation and much was to depend upon it…. Three judges–one British, one French, the third nominated by the King of Spain–were to comprise the court." This meant convictions in court were chosen based on either British or French law, depending on the circumstances. Other than the Joint Court, everything existed in pairs. "Cynics called the Condominium'the Pandemonium', as the dual administration produced amazing duplication. There were two police forces with their own laws, including road laws, two health services, two education systems, two currencies, two prison systems." Additionally, there were separate British and French governments, which meant two immigration policies, two courts, two corporation laws, inhabitants of the islands were given the choice as to which government they wanted to go under.

For instance, if you were convicted, you could choose whether to be convicted under British or French law. As Miles put it, "The result was an inevitable clash of foreign policy and colonial mentality."The Condominium was not beneficial for Ni-Vanuatu, as they were "...officially stateless. To travel abroad, they needed an identifying document signed by both the British and the French resident commissioners." This led to revolt across the islands, with a multitude of revolutionary groups forming to attempt to create agency and self-government for themselves. Local people could choose whether to be tried under the French civil law. Visitors could choose. Nationals of one country could set up corporations under the laws of the other. In addition to these two legal systems, a third Native Court existed to handle cases involving Melanesian customary law. There was a Joint Court, composed of British and French judges; the President of the Joint Court was appointed by the King of Spain until 1939 when the post was abolished after the retirement of the last President due to the abolition of the Spanish monarchy in 1931.

There were two prison systems. The police force was technically unified but consisted of two chiefs and two equal groups of officers wearing two different uniforms; each group alternated assignments. Language was a serious barrier to the operation of this inefficient system, as all documents had to be translated once to be understood by one side the response translated again to be understood by the other, though Bislama creole represented an informal bridge between the British and the French camps.

Undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma

Undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma malignant fibrous histiocytoma, is a type of cancer, namely a soft-tissue sarcoma. It is considered a diagnosis of exclusion for sarcomas that cannot be more categorized. Other sarcomas are cancers that form in bone and soft tissues, including muscle, blood vessels, lymph vessels, fibrous tissue. UPS occurs most in the extremities and retroperitoneum, but has been reported in other sites. Metastasis occurs most in the lungs and liver. In the extremities, it presents itself as a painless, soft-tissue mass, it can be detected by magnetic resonance imaging, but a biopsy is required for the definitive diagnosis. MRI findings show a well-circumscribed mass, dark on T1-weighted images and bright on T2-weighted images. Central necrosis is present and identifiable by imaging in larger masses. UPSs are, by definition, meaning that they do not bear a resemblance to any normal tissue; the histomorphology, otherwise, is characterized by high cellularity, marked nuclear pleomorphism accompanied by abundant mitotic activity, a spindle cell morphology.

Necrosis is common and characteristic of high-grade lesions. Treatment consists of surgical excision and in all cases radiation. Radiation eliminates the need for limb amputation and there is level I evidence to show that it leads to equivalent rates of survival. Radiation may be delivered either pre-op or post-op depending on surgeon and multidisciplinary tumor board's recommendations. Radiation can be omitted for low grade, Stage I excised tumors with >1 cm margin. Chemotherapy remains controversial in MFH; the usual site of metastatic disease is the lungs, metastases should be resected if possible. Unresectable or inoperable lung metastasis may be treated with stereotactic body radiation therapy with excellent local control. However, neither surgery nor SBRT will prevent emergence of additional metastases elsewhere in the lung. Therefore, the role of chemotherapy needs to be further explored to address systemic metastasis. Prognosis depends on the primary tumor grade, size and presence of metastases.

The five-year survival rate is 80%. High expression levels of AMPD2 have been shown to correlate with poor patient outcome and a proliferative tumor phenotype in UPS. UPS is regarded as the most common soft-tissue sarcoma of late adult life, it occurs in children. It occurs more in Caucasians than in those of African or Asian descent and is a male-predominant disease, afflicting two males for every female. An undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma was transplanted from a patient to a surgeon when he injured his hand during an operation
