An autoimmune disorder mainly affecting young adults and characterized by destruction of myelin in the central nervous system. Pathologic findings include multiple sharply demarcated areas of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction. The usual pattern is one of recurrent attacks followed by partial recovery (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, RELAPSING-REMITTING), but acute fulminating and chronic progressive forms (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE) also occur.

A story/dialogue method for health promotion knowledge development and evaluation. (1/98)

Arguments have been made in favour of a constructivist or postpositivist approach to health promotion knowledge development and program evaluation, but little has been articulated about what such an approach would look like. This article describes a 'story/dialogue method' that was created with and for practitioners in response to their concerns that much of their practice did not lend itself to a positivist, or conventional, methodology. Derived from constructivist, feminist and critical pedagogical theory, and with roots in qualitative methods, the method structures group dialogue around case stories addressing particular generative practice themes. While intended for practitioner training, organizational development and evaluation, the method to date has been used primarily for training purposes. This article describes the method, provides an example of its application, and discusses its strengths, weaknesses and relevance to health promotion.  (+info)

Ambulance notes of a Bellevue Hospital intern: May 1938. (2/98)

In 1938, as a New York University/Bellevue Hospital intern, I recorded notes on the 384 cases I saw during my 1-month ambulance duty. Although I intended to use them to follow up the clinical course of patients I admitted to Bellevue, the long hours and pressure of work made this ambitious goal unachievable. Sixty years later, after retirement from academic medicine and medical practice at New York University School of Medicine, I found the long-lost notes among my papers. They are of historic interest since they provide insight into aspects of primary and emergency medicine of the era when the therapeutic efficacy of the sulfanilamide class of agents was under investigation, a unique view of the life of an intern just before interns were replaced on ambulances by technicians, and a glimpse of the surprising character of several neighborhoods of pre-World War II Manhattan. The notes also provide the basis for a current analysis of case incidence and treatment by disease category. A description of the confluence of social, economic, and political forces that led to the establishment of the Bellevue Hospital Ambulance Service, the first such urban service in the world, is included.  (+info)

Balancing rationalities: gatekeeping in health care. (3/98)

Physicians are increasingly confronted with the consequences of allocation policies. In several countries, physicians have been assigned a gatekeeper role for secondary health care. Many ethicists oppose this assignment for several reasons, concentrating on the harm the intrusion of societal arguments would inflict on doctor-patient relations. It is argued that these arguments rest on a distinction of spheres of values and of rationality, without taking into account the mixing of values and rationalities that takes place in everyday medical practice. If medical practice, then, does not follow a single, pure rationality, can it also incorporate the societal rationality of the gatekeeper role? Using a case from general practice, I try to show how physicians may integrate societal arguments into their practice in a morally acceptable way. A version of the model of reflective equilibrium and especially Beauchamp and Childress's safeguards, may be helpful both to analyse and teach such balancing of values and rationalities.  (+info)

That's another story: narrative methods and ethical practice. (4/98)

This paper examines the use of case studies in ethics education. While not dismissing their value for specific purposes, the paper shows the limits of their use. While agreeing that case studies are narratives, although rather thin stories, the paper argues that the claim that case studies could represent reality is difficult to sustain. Instead, the paper suggests a way of using stories in ethics teaching that could be more real for students, while also giving them a way of thinking about their own professional practices. The paper shows how the method can be used to develop a more critical and reflective practice for students in the health care professions. Some immediate problems with the method are discussed.  (+info)

Acculturating human experimentation: an empirical survey in France. (5/98)

Preliminary results of an empirical study of human experimentation practices are presented and contrasted with those of a survey conducted a hundred years ago when clinical research, although tolerated, was culturally deviant. Now that biomedical research is both authorized and controlled, its actors (sponsors, committees, investigators, subjects) come out with heterogeneous rationalities, and they appear to be engaged in a transactional process of negotiating their rationales with one another. In the European context "protective" of subjects, surprisingly the subjects we interviewed (and especially patient-subjects) were creative and revealed an aptitude for integrating experimental medicine into common culture.  (+info)

Travels in Japan. (7/98)

Following his attendance at the ICMART meeting, in Myasaki in 1988, the author, a BMAS member, resolved to revisit Japan. He found that acupuncture was widely practised throughout the country; although the patients were in the main elderly. The range of techniques used ranged from TCM to western, and broadly mirrored the styles practised in the West. Most young people in Japan considered acupuncture to be rather old fashioned, and it is postulated that this contrasts with the population seeking complementary medicine in the West.  (+info)

The World Trade Center attack. Eye witness: observations of a physician on the outside looking in. (8/98)

Having personally witnessed the destruction at the World Trade Center on 11 September 2001, this paper presents my personal feelings and observations as an observer of both disaster and terror. Aside from the unimaginable horror as a result of the carnage, a feeling of helplessness was particularly prominent due to the inability to be able to care for casualties since most victims were fatalities. The passage of time has enabled a return to normalcy, however 'normalcy' carries a new definition due to the vastness of the tragedy and the sudden threat of bioterrorism and other weapons of mass destruction.  (+info)

Our brains seem to be hard-wired for anecdotes, and we learn most easily through compelling stories; but I am aghast that so many people, including quite a number of my friends, cannot see the pitfalls in this approach. Science knows that anecdotes and personal experiences can be fatally misleading. It requires results that are testable and repeatable. Medicine, on the other hand, can only take science so far. There is too much human variability to be sure about anything very much when it comes to individual patients, so yes there is often a great deal of room for hunch. But let us be clear about the boundaries, for if we stray over them the essence of science is quickly betrayed: corners get cut and facts and opinions intermingle until we find it ...
hi. what is an anecdote. Nicole Eikhoudt • 5 months ago. An anecdote is a piece of writing of your own experience, pretty much that youve been through. For example a story about how you got hit in the head with a pole, I dont know but in a speech or essay its a great way to express your own experiences of what you ...
Secondly, rather than leaving us with a collection of anecdotes, the Bill offers the prospect of making a huge step forward in medicine through the creation of a central database to record patient data. This database will be hosted at Oxford University, and work is progressing with the Department of Health to work out the details. A central database which will record each patients details, the treatment they receive and their outcomes is actually a hugely advance in medicine. With all of the patient data recorded we do not have a collection of anecdotes but a database that we can mine and explore and use to design clinical trials based on the signals we can glean from real patient data. It also means that non-standard treatments that work can be identified more quickly, and just as importantly those that do not work can also be identified and discouraged. This isnt a replacement for the clinical trial, its an advance on the system we now have ...

This is, of course, a reasonable manner in which to progress.

Ill expand upon what Steve wrote a bit. Often the very first evidence of potential efficacy of a new therapy comes from anecdotes. Yes, anecdotes. However, these anecdotes are not like the testimonials so beloved of so-called complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practitioners. Oh, no. real anecdotes are carefully documented and contain objective measures, complete with laboratory tests not performed by quack-friendly laboratories where all too often it is found, for instance, that virtually everyone with a vague complaint is suffering from heavy metal toxicity. By their very nature, however, anecdotes are not definitive evidence of ...
Heres a couple anecdotes Ive heard about unemployment insurance:. 1. A couple years ago a commenter mentioned the following story from someone who ran a hotel in California. A dozen or so maids were laid off during the recession. After a few months the owner tried to hire them back. They declined, saying that with their husbands income and their unemployment insurance checks they found they didnt need the second income. But note; if they were collecting UI then they would be required to call themselves unemployed.. 2. A few days ago an acquaintance mentioned that he heard the following story from a Chicago taxi driver. He said it was hard to keep drivers, because theyd work for a few months and then go collect UI.. How are we to react to stories like these? Are they apocryphal? After all, you cant collect UI if you quit your job. Except you can, Ive known people who did so. Are they not politically correct? Do they represent blaming the victim?

About the Author Ravindra Varma is a learned scholar, who has been running the Institute of Gandhian Studies at Gopuri, Wardha for several years. He has been introducing the youth, especially the college students and post-graduates, to the life and message of Gandhiji. His knowledge and study of Gandhian ideology is deep, and to the best of my knowledge he has been trying his level best to live according to the Gandhian ideology. This gives depth to whatever he says or writes. He has written three books on Gandhiji or I might say that he has written one book which is divided into three parts. Book one gives a narrative of Gandhijis life-story. Book 2 narrates several anecdotes that illustrate the way Bapu dealt with problems, which are very interesting. Book 3 concentrates on the implications and application of Gandhian technique and the ideology of Satyagraha, non-violence, non-cooperation and the importance of bringing about change of heart in the opponent through self-suffering.

A little word about epistemology here.. Many people appear fond of repeating the line that Anecdotes dont equal evidence. They appear to extend this to personal experience. Thus, if you lose weight and have health improvements on a paleo diet, you are advised that this doesnt count as evidence by the authorities who get to decide what counts as evidence.. If you think it through a bit, it seems the railing against anecdotes becomes the advice: Do not believe what you see with your own eyes, or experience in your own life. Instead, believe what the authorities have authorized you to believe, based on the evidence the authorities have decided is real evidence.. Although clothed in scientific garb, it sounds a lot like religion.. And the authorities think their evidence gives them the right to regulate the lives of people who prefer to ignore their authority..

Comments or Suggestions to: Sam or [email protected] Patient: Bogen tube-type PA amplifier, dead. Sometimes you wonder how some products ever made it out of the design lab. Sometimes theres so much wrong, you wonder if the item is a joke. Someday I may relate the story of the no-name amplifier, but todays story is from a quite respected company, Bogen. I acquired this Bogen PA amplifier, 50 watts out allegedly, pair of 8417s for output. Nicely built, heavy-duty transformers. Nothing works, so I put it on the bench. I look it over. The bad news: Output tubes have white getters, dont hold vacuum anymore. The only visible good news: the pilot light is okay. I dont have any 8417s, so I go to the computer to look them up. The number doesnt sound familiar. I look up the tube specs, and whoo-boy, they have a heck of a transconductance, 23,000 micromhos! I do a Google search, and find several references like these tubes sometimes run away. Hmmm..... lets be careful... I go to order some new ...

by Anthony Waldstock. This series of articles will present occasional anecdotal, amusing and factual notes behind the people and events on the This Day in History digests. Entries are determined by the daily posting of events in history with the first entries appearing for March 10th and are arranged alphabetically. With the steady increase of material, each letter of the alphabet now (April 17th 2002) has its own page. People are indexed according to their family or surnames whereas kings, popes, emperors etc. are listed according to their regnal names- e.g. Charles Boycott would be found under B, Pope Gregory under G and Queen Mary Tudor under M. Other items are indexed by the most significant word in the title, for example Artificial Ice will be found under I but Sad Iron will be found under S..

Abstract. This paper revisits several classic anecdotes defending popular protest as an appropriate part of the political process. Some key points:. 1. The two most cited anecdotes, in the Dzwo Jwan and Gwo Yw, are dated, in those texts, to c0850 and 0542, respectively. Accepting that dating, they are too intermittent to document a tradition for the right of political expression in the ancient period. The thinness of the evidence casts doubt on the claim itself.. 2. But our researches show that both the DJ and GY texts articulate values from their own time, disguised as stories about earlier times. This was the standard way to introduce a novel idea into the Warring States political debates. The stories are then really talking about the compilation dates of those two texts, which are c0312 and c0306, respectively. Both probably reflect a late 04c political theory agitation.. 3. In support of this conclusion, we find that the corresponding strata of the Analects (LY 12-13) express very similar ...
The burlesque, anecdotes and diatribes of Tropic of Cancer flow together in a narrative time that is neither mimetic, retrospective, nor surreal. What is left of the world are spots of time, intervals which cannot be dated or remembered as intervals. Left also is the medium of Millers narrative: not the timelessness of dreams, of the unconscious, but time a score, a reality to write upon. The time of Tropic of Cancer is the time of writing: neither a time that shadows the years worth of events recorded in its anecdotes, nor a time of its present telling, nor the timelessness of ecstatic vision; but a time created by writing which opens the possibility of mimesis, retrospection, and dream coexisting without cohesion within the same narrative, And all the while a meter is running inside and there is no hand that can reach in there and shut it off.[39] ...
At the Ancestral Health Symposium, I met two Whole Health Source readers, Aravind Balasubramanian and Kamal Patel, who were interested in trying a simple diet to lose fat and improve their health. In addition, they wanted to break free of certain other high-reward activities in their lives that they felt were not constructive. They recently embarked on an 8-week low-reward diet and lifestyle to test the effectiveness of the concepts. Both of them had previously achieved a stable (in Aravinds case, reduced) weight on a paleo-ish diet prior to this experiment, but they still carried more fat than they wanted to. They offered to write about their experience for WHS, and I thought other readers might find it informative. Their story is below, followed by a few of my comments ...
Although more casually than perfectly crafted, the comics in Estrus #5 prove compulsively readable. Theyre funny and sometimes affecting, making it easy to see oneself in the details, such as the way the young Mari bails on a boy because of a peers harsh appraisal or noticing the place where she and a boy had sex outside was easily seen from a nearby road. At the same time, theres always that sneaking suspicion when it comes to such personal work that the portrayals may not be fair, or that were simply peeping at the instances described, or that the experiences are forced to conform to Naomis treatments of them as a sprightly anecdotes when they could or maybe even should mean something entirely. By that I dont mean to suggest anything having to do with a factor some people are likely to hit on right away, that most of the book is given over to anecdotes stemming from a minor. I actually like the matter-of-factness that Naomi brings to that element of her story. Its more a sense that I ...
Chapter 4. ABOUT THIS AND ABOUT THAT. Anecdotes about sex, family, work, old age etc. In this chapter non-political jokes are gathered dealing with various matters, such as family relations, infirmities of old age, relationship between colleagues, etc, as well as those with a sexual connotation (the sex related items in this chapter are of a more restrained variety while the real off-color jokes are found in Chapter 8).. Readers of this chapter will not fail to notice that many of the sex-related jokes reveal a denigrating attitude toward women. It seems safe to assume that most of such anecdotes were created by men, and reflect certain trends in the Russian man-dominated culture. Throughout the Russian history women always had to bear the heaviest burden. However risky any generalization may be, it seems that one feature of Russian culture was that, on the one hand, a Russian woman was routinely expected to stay virgin until marriage, to be modest, chaste, and knowing her place, and on the ...
Merci beaucoup Is it a possibility that if I stopped for a short period and then started again I could once again re-live those heady days?
II. A Russian Legend. Matt. ii. 2. Where is He that is born King of the Jews ? for we have seen His star in the east, and are come to worship Him. THE Russian peasantry have a curious tradition. It is that an old woman, the Baboushka, was at work in her house when the wise men from the East passed on their way to find the Christ-child. Come with us, they said ; we have seen His star in the East, and go to worship Him. I will come, but not now, she answered ; I have my house to set in order ; when this is done I will follow and find Him. But when her work was done the three kings had passed on their way across the desert, and the star shone no more in the darkened heavens. She never saw the Christ-child, but she is living and searching for Him still. For His sake she takes care of all His children. It is she who in Russian and Italian houses is believed to fill. B. ...
You can also consider similar health claims and wonder about the similarities/differences.. For example Steve Ludwin claims to have been injecting himself with snake venom from various snakes since the mid-80s, with similar health benefits. So three flu-less decades are clearly a stronger claim than Brouchkovs two years... And clearly injecting random snake venoms are an even worse idea than a dose of permafrost meltwater. (Look up the literature, or even just tv herpetologists claims: Most snake venoms and antivenoms you build up allergies from. Also: Many snakes frequently bite without injecting venom, in humans/too-large-to-eat adversaries, so at least injecting controls the dose.). But a study with one person, no controlled dose-taking, nor any double-blind protocol is nothing but an anecdote. And anecdotes are useful starting points for medical research --- after a few chimney sweeps or watch painting girls come in with a very unusual cancer, that group gets studied closely and a clear ...
For to be free is not merely to cast off ones chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. - Nelson Mandela. Today is the 32nd Liberation Day or National Resistance Army/Movement Day, the day that ended the Bush-War of the 1980s in Uganda. Where President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni made his career from being a Minister and a Rebel to become the President. A position and an executive, head of state who has shown no signs of stepping down. He was supposed to be the next generation of leadership. He was the positive force in 1990s and was golden-kid for Bill Clinton on the Continent. While that has disappeared and with time his legacy has withered. Museveni has closely become all the things he fought against, he still tries to use the language and the charisma that he had in his younger days. But its all facade, it isnt the real deal. That I why I dont care to drastically demolish the whole speech. I will just take one principal and one point of it. Because it ...
Joe Cortina March 23, 2012 @ 2:53 pm JOHN, I get your point but I believe you are mistaken about this comment as a generality for two reasons:. How about when Germany swarmed over Poland, Belgium, and other neutral countries and annihilated thousands of innocent people? . #1 I spent time in both those countries and never heard any such claims of such war crimes;. #2 I was married to a Ukrainian woman (Tanya) who was very well educated for her youth. The following anecdote regarding the honor and conduct of the German military towards civilians was told to me by her personally.. I thought these were interesting anecdotes. You must remember, Tanyas grandmother was Ukrainian and before Stalins purges - loyal to the Mother Country. She was NOT a Marxist however - and was, like most Ukrainians, a Christian. They were of course in the heart of the breadbasket of the Ukraine and were self sustaining farmers who owned a small bit of their own land - Kulaks. This combination of circumstances are ...
And now, lets hear what the scariest part was for Jeff Strand:. The idea of writing my first non-fiction book wasnt scary. It would be about my own experience, not a meticulously researched book about 14th century gardening techniques and how they related to the class struggle. Excluding the infant and toddler years, Ive been doing this my entire life, and with my fiftieth birthday looming, I knew I had plenty to say.. I also wasnt scared to be sharing a lot of embarrassing, sometimes painful anecdotes. This book is not a celebration of my career. When choosing which tales of my writing life to share, I went with the ones that were useful and funny. Nobody needs my advice on how to cope with good reviews. An anecdote about having a well-attended, successful book signing is not nearly as funny as the one where I got kicked out of the store.. The premise of The Writing Life is not Learn from my success! but rather Oh, yeah, Ive been there, and heres how I kept going. Im not the hero in ...
Esther and two other women at Stanford noted that there were no women professors at Stanford. All three got together to request that a woman be appointed as a professor. Esther researched the question, then all three women presented their complaint to a dean. The dean responded that none of the women were qualified, as a professor must have published enough papers and none of the women in question met this requirement. Esther pointed out that most of the male professors didnt satisfy the requirement either. The dean responded that there was not sufficient funds to appoint a woman professor. Esther pointed out that funds had been specifically allocated for that purpose. The dean countered that the monies in question had been allocated to promote minorities that at that time were politically active and creating an embarrassment for Stanford University. Esther pointed out that this was an unauthorized spending of funds that were specifically designated for women: also a minority. The dean ...
Raymond Wolfinger, a political scientist and professor, once said, The plural form of anecdote is data. This quote explicably encapsulates what Brooke and I envision for the Lone Star Parity Project. Many times data and facts are presented solely as aggregated numbers, meant to generalize and identify overarching trends. While this remains important, the crux of the solution resides in the anecdotes of the people it affects. Every woman is a piece to the puzzle of politics in Texas, every experience as important as the other in contributing to overall parity. ...
Again, I think to anyone who actually has tried to buy a house, sold a house, do anything with a detached home in the last five years they will know who is blowing smoke. But I leave it to the readers to judge. But have you actually said anything new? Your entire thesis is that based on macro stats this market must implode. You have provided nothing more than I have. We are in reality, swatting each other. Difference is I actually am closely in touch with the market, you on the other hand, are not. But thats ok, I could play this game all day long. You still havent provided me an ounce of proof that you are qualified to analyze the market because you dont know who is buying, who is selling, what segment is outperforming, which one is under performing. You just like to paint everything with a broad brush. To you, a detached home in west point grey is the same as an apartment in richmond. How are you any different than the arm chair investors pretending like they know the inside on message ...
I do. That will be the subject of a long article that Ive been working on for a few days. I hope to have it out in a week or two. As you know, there are no clinical studies on the effectiveness of auditing for relief of any therapeutic symptoms. There was a study done in the late 1950s or early 1960s that showed that auditing delivered exactly zero of the benefits Hubbard claimed for clear (increased IQ, etc.), but thats not really the same thing so I am not going to take a 50-year old study as sufficient to prove that auditing is ineffective. This question is the whole reason for the lengthy discussion about anecdote versus evidence. There are many people who have been in Scientology who have reported significant wins after auditing, and plenty of reason to believe those wins are genuine positive, significant and permanent life changes that have occurred as a result of auditing. However, positive anecdotes, no matter how many, are not proof that auditing works. You have to consider those ...
The Doctor Is In... As Are the Doritos And now a word from our sponsor... Id just like to comment now on certain outstanding products. Dr. Pepper and Doritos are not only healthy for growing young lads, but they are absolutely vital to building strong bones, increasing your sex drive, and decreasing your risk of syphilis. (If the latter two items cancel each other out, at least youve still got stronger bones.) These are fine, quality products that will suit all your snacking needs! Given, Ive never actually had either of them, but people say theyre good. Now, the more cynical readers are cursing my name for this seemingly blatant selling-out of any morals the Travesty Team once had, followed by a shrill scream of Corporate sponsorship is the devil and then Why do I continuously beat my own crotch?, but I assure you, Im not just telling you this for the money. Yes, the companies that make the delicious, smooth, and oh-so-refreshing Dr. Pepper, and the crunchy, explosively fun flavors ...
Hi! I am Dee G. Pleased to meet ya! I am a 38 year old (yes, I admitted to being 38...) happily married (to The Leester) mother of one son (whom is known around here as The Prodigy).

Here you will find updates about the goings on of the Family G. and our lives, such as they are, as we spend them exiled somewhere in Central Florida. Not that we are complaining, mind you!.

Every day, survivors of murder victims have to drag themselves to court and listen to prosecutors, defense attorneys, witnesses and even defendants re-live their worst nightmares. It might not be pleasant, but its a necessary part of what makes the U.S. system of justice what it is. Is it perfect? No. Do guilty people often go free? Absolutely. And in the eyes of a loved one who has just seen a killer acquitted, is it fair? Not at all. Just as its not fair to railroad innocent people into long jail sentences and, possibly, death. They both happen, and, Im afraid, a lot more often than wed all like to think ...
I dont generally criticize the people Ive worked with during my many years in the biz. Its not my style. I find its better to gently mock them from afar, kind of like voodoo of disrespect. Except the voodoo doll is my phone and the pins are prank calls. Suckers.. This is the only time Ill break the silence... but when I break the silence, I dont weakly snap it. I am like so many kung fu masters let loose in a lumber yard; I obliterate the silence. I want to tell you all about a young actor by the name of Ted Stoltzfus. Now, I know what youre thinking. You squeal, But hes brilliant! Hes like the Tom Hanks of crap! Yeah, well, Ive got news for you, and the picture on the front page is your face, getting pummeled by my righteous, raging fists of fury.. Were talking about an actor thats been riding on one accomplishment for an entire career. Without Got Mac in the early 90s, you wouldnt have heard of any Stoltzfus other than the one in that buggy you sped past on your way to the cow ...
At the time of the hit, the Patriots and Raiders were less than two years removed from one of the most controversial and agonizing post-season losses in Boston-area sports history ... when an all-but-certain victory turned into a defeat when referee Ben Drieth called Ray Hamilton for roughing the passer. Between that, and the overall almost tribal rivalries that sprung when the old AFL merged with the NFL (face it, dont you get just a little more jacked up when those old AFL foes meet?), there resulted an abundance of bad blood between the Patriots and Raiders organizations (this wasnt helped either by a sideline shoving match between Pat Sullivan and Matt Millen in 1986 or the phantom tuck rule call in 2002 ...

Transformation is the evolution of an indolent lymphoma/leukemia to an aggressive lymphoma, typically harboring a very poor prognosis. This phenomenon is well described in humans , but under-estimated in dogs although recognized as a possible evolution of indolent lymphomas/leukemias. In canine chronic leukemias blast crisis (mainly in myeloid ) and Richter syndrome (transformation into a high grade lymphoma) (mainly in B-cell lymphocytic leukemia) has been reported. Transformation is a possible event also in canine low grade lymphomas, although rare. The increased knowledge has also generated new questions and posed challenges that need to be addressed to improve outcome, including the recognition of the clinical characteristics at diagnosis associated with a higher risk of transformation in an attempt of anticipating the typical evolution.
Abbasside dynasty. Ibn-,Khalik^n caUs him the champion and asserter of the rights of the AMfOssides to the KhaH/ate, He was not of the house of d-Abb&S) nor do historians seem agreed as to his birth/sonie even maintaining that he was originally a slave of Kurd extraction. Be that as it may, he attached himself to the house of el-Abb&s, and sd great were his talents as a general, that the Khallfah Marw^s troops could make no bead against him, and in A.H. 129 all Max^vdns commandants of fortresses in Kho- rassin were obliged either to taflce an oath of fidelity to Ibrahim, or within a limited time to quit the province. In A.H. 131, Ibrahim, while on his way to perform the pilgrim- age to Mekkah, was seized by the troops of Marw^n, which came up with him near Harr4n, carried him to that city, and confined him in prison, where he soon after died.

I was walked about 8 steps to the other laser chair. Same wedge under my legs, but this chair/table had a recessed place to cradle your head. More drops were put in my eyes, Im guessing numbing, they were totally numb the whole time but drops of one sort or another were put in 5-6 times. There was a panel right above me with lots of white/blue lights (tiny ones) on the periphery, a blinking green light in the middle, and kind of a net of tiny red lights that moved around. One eye was taped shut again, the other was taped open with really soft tape, while they inserted something to hold my eye open. This was the part I was most freaked out about, but I could barely see it go in. I was asked to focus on the green light, and the doctor went in and raised the flap out of the way - my vision went instantly blurry and swimmy and I could barely see anything - just light and shape. I was told that the laser would begin firing, and it would make noises, so dont worry, and it would make smells, too, ...

Beginning in the late 1980s, Eric Davidsons group at Cal Tech developed a modularity hypothesis of developmental gene regulation, showing that in an expanding number of cases, particular aspects of development were governed by compact modules of transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs), and that these modules were separable, complex and interconnected. Davidson made no attempt to further generalize the hypothesis, but others took up the idea, transported it out of development and extended it to a general rule of clustering. Despite such misbegotten origins, the extended modularity hypothesis-that TFBSs in general tend to come in compact clusters-has been highly productive, yet it has never been challenged with a large, diverse and unbiased dataset to see how universal it actually is. The aim of the present paper is to do so. Applying human-mouse-rat phylogenetic footprinting to neighbourhoods of a diverse set of TFBSs, including both developmental and non-developmental signals, we find ...
Another fascinating site, as it seems less glib than Urban Dictionary. Im not sure where these anecdotes fit, but they seem to confirm something.. Some 20+ years ago, I worked two stretches of 60 hour weeks at a job I disliked. Afterwards, during my time off, I went back into work anyway because I couldnt settle myself down to do anything at home. Four-and-three-quarter years ago, I finished writing a play that I (still) love, then got summarily sick, literally all over, with a sinus infection, shingles, and another affliction I wont mention except to say that it took six dozen suppositories to calm it the fuck down.. I wouldnt cite their cause as leisure per se, as both episodes came after a big push, so to speak, at work. Ive read similar anecdotes about big time movie directors, who collapse into bed once theyve completed the editing. I think it has to do with being so busy that you go without proper sleep and food. Its like you can be strong as long as you have to be strong, but the ...

Dear Americans, I know youre being bombarded by anecdotes about Canadian health care right now, and the plural of anecdote is not data. The plural of anecdote is apparently television commercials, which I hear youre seeing a lot of right now, some featuring a Canadian whose story might not be quite true.. Most of my anecdotes involve other people. Ive broken my arm, sustained some relatively minor burns, contracted pneumonia and dealt with the aches, pains and ailments that everyone gets, but Ive been fortunate enough to have avoided anything serious.. Not everyone I know has been so lucky.. A friend was diagnosed with leukemia last summer. Since then, she has endured grueling chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant and is now cancer-free. She is just 26 years old.. A family member recently had knee surgery and is now the proud owner of two titanium knee joints. Only months before, he suffered a heart attack and had quadruple bypass surgery. Hes not just alive, hes enjoying life and his ...
When Dad told this story I was immediately struck with how he quickly moved from his story to a heuristic without analysis or considering the options. But of course, this is just how we often make decisions, so I thought I could replicate this process in our workshops. My first opportunity was at a workshop in Tasmania where we were helping natural resource managers develop a knowledge strategy for their region. We had reached the point in the workshop where we had identified a set of issues that were either working well or needed some attention so I asked the groups to grab an issue and tell a story explaining what happened. People busily jumped into the activity but I noticed they were just writing dot points detailing their opinions about what had happened. No one wrote a story. It seems that they didnt know what to do to write a story. I had just assumed that everyone else thinks about stories like I do and has a sense what one looks like. Big mistake! My next opportunity was at another ...

A new breed of doctors is coming to the fore- in the authors words, the techno-doctor.. This highly skilled individual is often someone with an overriding obsession with technology, and usually a super-specialist with an interest in only a small area ...
We humans are storytellers. When we want something to be memorable and meaningful, we make it into a story that can be interpreted causally. Our brains are just made that way [1], [2]. That may be why adding dramatic anecdotes to a book or article can make it more popular and persuasive than sticking solely to claims that have gone through rigorous tests. This can lead us to believe more strongly in a hypothesis than the evidence merits.. In Apologia we describe how we try to mitigate errors in our work by tracing our sources of evidence. We aim to at least label our hypotheses as such, and to point out when evidence we used comes only from observed correlations.. Beyond anecdote, there are other ways that storytelling is used in science: the plausible mechanism, and the evolutionary story. Both types are used in two ways: to explain an observation, or to lend weight to an hypothesis. A characteristic of this science fiction is that it can be argued against by making a different, more ...

Richard Nisbett has described the Hawthorne effect as a glorified anecdote, saying that once you have got the anecdote, you can throw away the data.[15] Other researchers have attempted to explain the effects with various interpretations. Adair warns of gross factual inaccuracy in most secondary publications on Hawthorne effect and that many studies failed to find it.[16] He argues that it should be viewed as a variant of Ornes (1973) experimental demand effect. So for Adair, the issue is that an experimental effect depends on the participants interpretation of the situation; this is why manipulation checks are important in social sciences experiments. So he thinks it is not awareness per se, nor special attention per se, but participants interpretation that must be investigated in order to discover if/how the experimental conditions interact with the participants goals. This can affect whether participants believe something, if they act on it or do not see it as in their interest, ...

It can help to use a positive anecdote here for some patients. I talk about one particular, wonderful patient who could only manage 1 minute on a bike before his pain become too severe. He started with just under a minute and gradually built up… 6 months later he cycled London to Brighton! While we, as scientists, dont put much stock in anecdotes as evidence, patients can find them helpful to illustrate a point.. Some patients might want a more detailed explanation. Where Im based, for example, we sit between two universities and treat a lot of lecturers and students who may be interested in research. For them I talk about this amazing study which suggests some joints are able to adapt even in the middle of a multi-day ultra-marathon event! This helps to challenge the view that a joint is simple hinge that gets wear and tear and instead shows its an amazing, living tissue that constantly tries to adapt to the stresses placed upon it.. Goldilocks theory. A barrier to our idea that ...

11 Thou shalt say I Love You - The perils of French-style amour.. A Little History. Id been playing around with the idea for Talk to the Snail for a while, and had started giving talks about living in France that I divided up into commandments. They were rather long commandments, I seem to remember, along the lines of if you go to Paris, dont assume that just because the drivers refuse to stop at red lights and try to run you over, that they hate you personally.. Id then tell a few traffic-related anecdotes. I had several similar commandments, all of which inspired a bunch of anecdotes, and I found I could keep this up for ages. Once, I was even moaned at by the person whod organized the event. OK it was funny, she told me, but you went on so long I didnt have time to sell them any books at the end ...
Smart managers recognize the risk of fraud and take preventive actions to strengthen their systems and reduce their vulnerability/ risk. For example, a second-generation entrepreneur who graduated from renowned University and runs IT software company hired us to review his Order to Cash cycle. The company had three divisions, namely, Contract Software Development, ERP and a SaaS platform. Each division had its own head. The CEO/ Owner did not have confidence in correctness of revenue numbers and was not sure if they matched with the level of effort. On analyzing the process, we discovered that all the authority in ERP, that is closing contracts with customers, issuing licenses and collection were concentrated with the Division Head. The licenses were issued through software and numbers were encoded making it difficult for anyone to figure out how many licenses have been issued. One of the use cases we developed was of Division head being under pressure to meet with his monthly Sales target. The ...

Poor glucose control during pregnancy is a significant concern for Canadian women with diabetes. This problem is magnified in First Nations women, who have among the highest rates of gestational diabetes (GDM) in the world (up to 18% of First Nations women will develop GDM during pregnancy and 70% of these will go on to develop type 2 diabetes later). Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology has the potential to help women maintain tighter control during pregnancy, however, in the First Nations population, there are many unique barriers that may affect use of this technology. Such barriers include remoteness of the community, cultural apprehension, lack or difficulty of access to care, and language differences.. A total of 60 participants from three participating First Nations communities in Southern Ontario will participate in the study. Participants will self-select to either the CGM group (n=30) or the control group (n=30) after consenting to participate in the study. Participants in ...
This paper reports a series of four experiments conducted to gain insight into students social representations of the firm. The results suggested a possible revision of the central core theory. They showed that the central elements of the representation were treated differently by the subjects. More specifically, the notion of Profit and Hierarchy, both central, did not play the same role in the representation. The subjects were found to grant evaluative power to the notion of Profit but not to the notion of Hierarchy. This differentiation by evaluative potential was also found for two peripheral elements. These differences suggest that independently of their central or peripheral nature, the various elements of a representation can be placed along an evaluative continuum. By combining the evaluative dimension and the central or peripheral dimension of the elements, we obtain a two-dimensional model of representations which divides discourse and cognition into four fields. ...
This study extends previous research investigating the social representation of organ donation and transplantation (Moloney & Walker, 2000, 2002) by exploring the accommodation of contradiction (Wagner, Duveen, Verma, & Thelmel, 2000) within consensual reality (Rose et al., 1995), and the role of themata (Markova, 2000) in a representation. The study employed a mail-out questionnaire embedded with eight experimental conditions, which manipulated two tasks, scenario rating scale and word association. WMDS (INDSCAL) analyses demonstrated that the dialectical concepts of life and death are generative of a contradictory representational field that is maintained through the differential elicitation of the normative and functional dimensions (Guimelli, 1998) of the representation in accordance with social context.. ...
While both men and women participate in hook-ups, Bogle notes that males and females often choose casual sex for different reasons.[1] Researchers suggest men and women have distinct sexual scripts, or ways in which cultural influences can affect an individuals sexual behaviors.[1][7] Furthermore, society judges the sexual behaviors of men and women in a completely different manner.[1][7] For men, sex is characterized as central to male identity, and research suggests men tend to prefer nonrelational sex.[7] In contrast, women are viewed as sexual objects and are normally sexually passive compared to men.[7] Society typically admires or glorifies men who frequently engage in casual sex, but women are scrutinized or admonished for those same behaviors.[1] For this reason, a womans sexual script has more focus on finding some type of commitment or relationship.[1] Additionally, women pursue relationships to protect their reputation while in college, but men have more sexual freedom ...

Hear, hear. A paper in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association today calls on scientists to fight stories with stories.. That is, in the service of more powerfully conveying what research actually shows, they should no longer shy away from anecdote just because it lacks statistical power. They should use stories of real people that illustrate evidence-based points in order to convey information better to the public.. The paper begins with a federal panels recent controversial recommendations against routine prostate screening for healthy men. Celebrities from Rudy Giuliani to Joe Torre fought the recommendations using that most powerful of weapons, their own personal stories, in which they attributed their survival to screening.. Panel members, in contrast, tended to explain their decision with numbers, not stories. They did not offer heartbreaking tales from men left incontinent, impotent or otherwise harmed - though goodness knows, they would not be hard to find. And ...
Paul Farmer, editor-in-chief of Health and Human Rights and founding director of Partners in Health, delivered the principal commencement address at the College of the Holy Cross on May 25. In his speech, centered on a personal anecdote he dubbed The Story of the Inhaler, Farmer looked to impress upon the graduating class the inequality that exists in the world and every persons obligation to combat it.. He recounted a particular experience in Haiti where he was serendipitously able to save a mans life from a near-fatal asthma attack, a chronic condition that is easily preventable and treatable in affluent countries. He emphasized this is a story about unequal access to the fruits of modern science. This is everybodys problem. This inequality was starkly apparent as he treated this man with his own personal inhaler, an item so easily accessible in the United States.. The twist in Farmers story is that he had at first refused, several times, to see the patient because of his own hurry to ...

Why do so many Americans reject the modern theory of evolution? Seeking answers, the author became a regular attendee at creationist conferences and other gatherings. After ten years of attending events like the giant Creation Mega-Conference in Lynchburg, Virginia, and visiting sites like the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, and after hundreds of mostly friendly conversations with creationists of varying stripes, he has emerged with a story to tell, a story that goes well beyond the usual stereotypes of Bible-thumping fanatics railing against coldly rational scientists. Through anecdotes, personal reflections, and scientific and philosophical discussion, the author presents a more down-to-earth picture of modern creationism and the people who espouse it. He also tells the story of his own nonbelievers attempt to understand a major aspect of American religion. Forced to wrestle with his views about religion and science, the author found himself drawn into a new world of ideas previously unknown
Ken Dickson, the man behind the memoir, packs a punch with a personal story. The problem I had was that, while the story was emotional and full of health information that actually kept my attention (some simply educational, some sad anecdotes), I simply didnt like the storyteller.
