Competitive gymnasts need to be lean and strong to perform, making it important to eat a low-calorie diet that controls weight and builds muscle. Strict control of your weight requires careful planning and tracking of your meals and snacks. Gymnastics requires short bursts of energy rather than long-lasting energy since gymnasts only perform for a few minutes at a time. This makes low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets a top choice for many Olympians. Many professional gymnasts get 60 to 70 percent of their calories from protein, with carbohydrates and healthy fats making up the rest. Calories.

*  EEOC Informal Discussion Letter
... 2 The EEOC enforces Title I of the ADA, which generally limits the ability of employers to make disability-related inquiries and conduct medical examinations of applicants and employees. Because you do not employ peace officers, but instead prescribe the rules by which they are certified, your inquiry does not directly implicate Title I of the ADA. Based on the information you have provided, we believe that Title I of the ADA permits the Board to require law enforcement agencies to test peace officers for the illegal use of anabolic steroids and to report such use to the Board. Disability-Related Inquiries and Medical Examinations Under the ADA. Most questions about lawful drug use e.g., whether an applicant or employee currently is taking any prescription drugs or medications, or whether he has taken any such drugs in the past are disability-related inquiries.

Secondhand smoke boosts kids ADHD, learning disability risks Two new studies from the American Academy of Pediatrics look at how exposure to secondhand smoke affects American youths learning behaviors and their attitudes toward smoking. Still, a recent report from the National Center for Addiction and Substance Abuse found that nine out of 10 people who meet the clinical criteria for substance abuse began smoking, drinking or using other drugs before they turned 18, and that this is a big concern in teens as they are more likely to try risky things while their brains are still developing.

HAYWARD -- The city's only emergency overnight shelter for adults opened Monday, with five people coming in from the cold, and organizers expected it to reach capacity Tuesday night. It was the death of a homeless man in December when temperatures dropped below freezing that spurred residents and several local churches to open the shelter. Joe White, 50, was found dead behind a Safeway store on Foothill Boulevard. "The fact that someone in our city would die of hypothermia because there was no way to get out of the cold just left people in a state of shock," said Betty DeForest, a board member at New Bridges Presbyterian Church, which took the lead in starting the shelter. "The response was: What ...

Enlarge Homeless and others waiting in a food line in Denver. Jeffrey Beall/flickr. “ Hunger and obesity are related. Homelessness is bad for your health, and that’s what we’re seeing here. — Barbara DiPietro. New research by Oxford University and Harvard Medical School, soon to be published in the Journal of Urban Health, suggests that 32.3 percent of the homeless population in the United States is obese — just slightly below the national average. The findings underscore what is referred to as "the hunger-obesity paradox," which refers to the phenomenon of people who suffer from hunger but — for reasons attributed to the high cost and relative inaccessibility of nutritious food and the low cost and relative ease of finding poor-quality food — are also obese.

Thus warming centers are frequently directed to the circumstances of persons who are "unsheltered" due to a personal state of homelessness and who, for one reason or another, do not utilize existing homeless shelters.

Okun is expected to decide whether to bar the District from using recreation centers as shelters — as opposed to sending homeless families to motel rooms or apartments paid for by the city. Kim Katzenbarger, an attorney for the District, said that if the judge forced the city to place homeless families in motel rooms and apartments, funds would have to be taken from other parts of the budget.

... Rates of the infectious diseases HIV, Hepatitis C and tuberculosis among the world’s homeless people are many times higher than in the general population, according to a new systematic review of existing data published Online First in The Lancet Infectious Diseases. The study – which examined more than 40 research papers assessing the levels of HIV, hepatitis C and tuberculosis among homeless people from 1984 to 2012 – found that although there is considerable variation between countries and regions, homeless people have a much higher likelihood of having one of these potentially fatal and debilitating diseases. In the US, the prevalence of tuberculosis is at least 46 times greater in the homeless population than the general population, and the prevalence of hepatitis C viral infection is increased more than fourfold. In the UK, the prevalence of tuberculosis is at least 34 times greater in homeless people than in the general population, and the prevalence of hepatitis C viral infection is nearly 50 time...

Faced with unprecedented overcrowding in New York City's homeless shelters, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has cut through the bureaucracy to open up new shelters across the city, pushing some into wealthy areas where residents fear their new neighbors will bring in crime and drugs. Bloomberg has opened 10 new homeless shelters in recent months in response to the escalating crisis. And that has created turmoil in neighborhoods like the Upper West Side, where a shelter opened in August among apartments occupied by the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans. The parent-teacher association is working with local police to increase security on the street, which is a pedestrian corridor to Riverside Park's soccer fields and playgrounds.

(1/12) Selecting subjects for participation in clinical research: one sphere of justice.

Recent guidelines from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) mandate the inclusion of adequate numbers of women in clinical trials. Ought such standards to apply internationally? Walzer's theory of justice is brought to bear on the problem, the first use of the theory in research ethics, and it argues for broad application of the principle of adequate representation. A number of practical conclusions for research ethics committees (RECs) are outlined. Eligibility criteria in clinical trials ought to be justified by trial designers. Research ethics committees ought to question criteria that seem to exclude unnecessarily women from research participation. The issue of adequate representation should be construed broadly, so as to include consideration of the representation of the elderly, persons with HIV, mental illness and substance abuse disorders in clinical research.  (+info)

(2/12) Health outcomes and managed care: discussing the hidden issues.

Too often the debate over health outcomes and managed care has glossed over a series of complex social, political, and ethical issues. Exciting advances in outcomes research have raised hopes for logical medical reform. However, science alone will not optimize our patients' health, since value judgements are necessary and integral parts of attempts to improve health outcomes within managed care organizations. Therefore, to form healthcare policy that is both fair and efficient, we must examine the fundamental values and ethical concerns that are imbedded in our efforts to shape care. We must openly discuss the hidden issues including: (1) trade-offs between standardization of care and provider-patient autonomy; (2) effects of financial incentives on physicians' professionalism; (3) opportunity costs inherent in the design of insurance plans; (4) responsibilities of managed care plans for the health of the public; (5) judicious and valid uses of data systems; and (6) the politics of uncertainty.  (+info)

(3/12) Impact of therapeutic research on informed consent and the ethics of clinical trials: a medical oncology perspective.

PURPOSE: To create a more meaningful understanding of the informed consent process as it has come to be practiced and regulated in clinical trials, this discussion uses the experience gained from the conduct of therapeutic research that involves cancer patients. DESIGN: After an introduction of the ethical tenets of the consent process in clinical research that involves potentially vulnerable patients as research subjects, background that details the use of written consent documents and of the term "informed consent" is provided. Studies from the cancer setting that examine the inadequacies of written consent documents, and the outcome of the consent process itself, are reviewed. Two ethically challenging areas of cancer clinical research, the phase I trial and the randomized controlled trial, are discussed briefly as a means of highlighting many dilemmas present in clinical trials. Before concluding, areas for future research are discussed. RESULTS: Through an exclusive cancer research perspective, many current deficiencies in the informed consent process for therapeutic clinical trials can be critically examined. Also, new directions for improvements and areas of further research can be outlined and discussed objectively. The goals of such improvements and research should be prevention of further misguided or ineffective efforts to regulate the informed consent process. CONCLUSION: To ignore this rich and interesting perspective potentially contributes to continued misunderstanding and apathy toward fulfilling the regulatory and ethically obligatory requirements involved in an essential communication process between a clinician-investigator and a potentially vulnerable patient who is considering clinical trial participation.  (+info)

(4/12) Protective truthfulness: the Chinese way of safeguarding patients in informed treatment decisions.

The first part of this paper examines the practice of informed treatment decisions in the protective medical system in China today. The second part examines how health care professionals in China perceive and carry out their responsibilities when relaying information to vulnerable patients, based on the findings of an empirical study that I had undertaken to examine the moral experience of nurses in practice situations. In the Chinese medical ethics tradition, refinement [jing] in skills and sincerity [cheng] in relating to patients are two cardinal virtues that health care professionals are required to possess. This notion of absolute sincerity carries a strong sense of parental protectiveness. The empirical findings reveal that most nurses are ambivalent about telling the truth to patients. Truth-telling would become an insincere act if a patient were to lose hope and confidence in life after learning of his or her disease. In this system of protective medical care, it is arguable as to whose interests are being protected: the patient, the family or the hospital. I would suggest that the interests of the hospital and the family members who legitimately represent the patient's interests are being honoured, but at the expense of the patient's right to know.  (+info)

(5/12) The psychological profile of parents who volunteer their children for clinical research: a controlled study.

Three standard psychometric tests were administered to parents who volunteered their children for a randomised, double-blind placebo-controlled trial of a new asthma drug and to a control group of parents whose children were eligible for the trial but had declined the invitation. The trial took place at a children's hospital in Australia. The subjects comprised 68 parents who had volunteered their children and 42 who had not, a participation rate of 94 per cent and 70 per cent, respectively. The responses of these parents to the Gordon Survey of Interpersonal Values Questionnaire, the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory and the Cattell Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire were analysed by computer. There was a marked difference between the psychological profiles of the two groups of parents. Volunteering parents put more value on benevolence while non-volunteering parents were more concerned with power and prestige. The self-esteem of volunteering parents was much lower than that of non-volunteering parents. Finally, volunteering parents were more introverted, exhibited greater anxiety and low supergo, while non-volunteering parents appeared to have greater social confidence and emotional stability. Since an individual's values, self-esteem and personality may be important antecedents of behaviour, these findings suggest that parents who volunteer their children for clinical research are not only socially disadvantaged and emotionally vulnerable, but may also be psychologically predisposed to volunteering. Furthermore, these findings provide evidence for the existence of a psychosocial 'filter' effect of the informed consent procedure, which may be discouraging the better educated, more privileged and psychologically resilient members of society from participation as research subjects.  (+info)

(6/12) Sociodemographic and motivational characteristics of parents who volunteer their children for clinical research: a controlled study.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the sociodemographic and motivational characteristics of parents who volunteer their children for clinical research. DESIGN: A questionnaire was administered to parents who volunteered their children for a randomised, double blind, placebo controlled trial of a drug to treat asthma and to a control group of parents whose children were eligible for the trial but had refused the invitation. SETTING: A children's hospital in Australia. SUBJECTS: 68 Parents who had volunteered their children and 42 who had not; a response rate of 94% and 70%, respectively. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Responses of parents to questionnaire designed to assess their perceptions, attitudes, and health seeking behaviour as well as sociodemographic data. RESULTS: Volunteering parents were less well educated with only 15% (10/68) of mothers and 16% (11/68) and of fathers having had a tertiary or university education compared with 26% (11/42) of mothers and 45% (19/42) in the non-volunteering group. Fewer volunteering parents had professional or administrative jobs than did non-volunteering parents (mothers 6% (4/68); fathers 9% (6/68) v mothers 14% (6/42); fathers 31% (13/42)). Volunteering parents had less social support, and they displayed greater health seeking behaviour and consumed more habit forming substances. They were motivated by a desire to help others and to contribute to medical research, but they were also searching for more information and better ways to help their own children. CONCLUSION: Parents who volunteer their children for medical research are significantly more socially disadvantaged and emotionally vulnerable.  (+info)

(7/12) A classification of clinical paediatric research with analysis of related ethical themes.

Different types of clinical research are associated with different degrees of risk and with varying utility. Usually classified as therapeutic or non-therapeutic, clinical research involving children necessitates a balance between the conflicts of intrusion into a group of vulnerable subjects, and the obvious advantages which such intrusion engenders. To understand better the potential ethical dilemmas of paediatric research the author has expanded the classification of such clinical research involving children. Five types of such research--preventive research, curative research, research to alleviate symptoms, studies to establish norms and baselines, and curiosity research--are discussed in the context of their ethical constraints, and the different ethical questions which confront workers operating in each of these different themes.  (+info)

(8/12) How to do it. Get patients' consent to enter clinical trials.

Gaining patients' consent to enter clinical trials is essential, but not easy. Giving careful thought to the design of the study itself, information which patients receive, and the use of a signed consent form may all help. To be properly informed, patients need to know something about their condition, the proposed study, and alternative options. The type and amount of information will vary and investigators need to judge the level appropriate for each person. Patients should understand that taking part in a clinical trial is voluntary and that their decision will not affect the quality of care they receive. The process of obtaining consent requires time and good communication. Working with young, elderly, or mentally impaired patients, or those particularly vulnerable to coercion, requires special sensitivity to the potential dangers.  (+info)

Is it legal for persons under 21 to create and then consume alcoholic beverages in New York?


Using a distillation process. The beverages in question would be brewed entirely from common household items. All items used in the process would be legally available to such persons (under 21). There would be no intent to distribute such items and consumption would not be public. 

Just curious to the legalities of such.
----------

Distilling is illegal for everyone to do.  And as far as brewing and all other types of making alcohol in the home it is illegal if you're under 21.  You can't even legally buy the equipment or the ingredients.  Even for people who are of age are limited as to how much they can make.  100 gallons per person per year not to exceed 200 gallons.  And some states/cities/townships don't allow it at all.


What is a condition called where a persons heart stops growing when they are around the age of 12?

How do I make a dress out of a persons measurements?


I know how to sew and costruct I just dont know how I take a persons measurement and make a dress out of it. I need to make a dress for my friend in a month. Anyone got tips and suggestions?
----------

Hey Girl!

I would look at JoAnn or Michael's for a pattern. Just making a dress out of scratch is REALLY hard.

Best of Luck!

What would happen to my hair if I did a black persons perm?


I'm white and I have thick wavy/curly brown hair with highlights. I am sick of straigtening my hair because it takes forever and my hair is so stubborn. I was wondering what would happen if I did a black persons perm to straighten it.
----------

Well any thing that you use to straighten or perm your hair that you buy from the store will kill your hair.  Been there done that.  I'd definitely get it done professionaly otherwise you will regret it.  It makes it so brittle and tangled you can hardly comb through it.


Does the consumption of Iodine supplements make a persons metabolism faster?


If the lack of Iodine makes a persons metabolism slower, will iodine supplements help a persons metabolism go faster? 

If you have a look at the Japanese diet, their staple food is fish and seafood, all of which is a source of iodine. And they have the lowest rate of obesity in the world.
----------

not to any great extent. Save your money.

They have the lowest rate of obesity because their meals are small and they handle carbs good. Couple that with their meat based meals which contains protein. Protein builds muscle. Increasing muscle increases your metabolism.


How can I deal with these persons who are making fun of my voice?


I'm in 11th grade and when I have to speak out loud people laugh at my very deep voice (and I think it's also hoarse). How can I deal with these persons? This is very annoying!!!

Some people think I have the flue cuz of my voice.
----------

Just ignore them. That is nothing you can change and nothing you should have to change. Sometimes people laugh when they are surprised by something or uncomfortable with it. Once they get used to it they usually calm down a little. If they don't, at least you will be out of there in just one year and as the other poster said above, women will love your deep voice. In other words, "This too shall pass."


How much does weather got to do with a persons mood?


I was just wondering if weather has much effect on a persons mood and likeliness of getting depression?
I was just wandering because when I lived in europe and when I was 15, I used to get really depressed and I couldnt sleep.
Here in Australia, a few years later I was only a little depressed 1 time in 2 years.
----------

Lately I've noticed I get extremely upset, angry, sad, everything, when it rains outside or when it's cloudy, I love nice, warm or even hot, sunny weather. And preferably spring-summer... even autumn, but nice days such as these. Winter makes me feel trapped if the weather's horrible, dark, cloudy... even snow and ice doesn't make me very happy... at least if it's sunny it's quite ok...
