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)

East and west see eye to eye--an elective report. (6/98)

A summary of personal experiences encountered as a medical student on elective at an eye hospital in China.

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)

In evidence-based medicine, randomized controlled trials are said to be the highest evidence of what works, while anecdotes have low value or are not even considered to be medical evidence. Similar hierarchical views of evidence have infected other disciplines, including evidence-based education and evidence-based government. Here, I explore the artificial divisions of acceptable from unacceptable evidence, numbers from narrative and sciences from humanities. I challenge the deprecation of stories in medicine. Some stories are based on experiments while others are based on more or less plausible theories. Some stories offer vast and impressive statistics gathered from many observations while others present one noteworthy event. Published reports are themselves stories of what experimenters did. Systematic reviewers generate their own observations of collected stories of experiments. Reviewers of systematic reviews in turn report their observations of systematic reviews. All of these stories ...

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.

This study was developed in an endemic area of tegumentary leishmaniasis in Minas Gerais, Brazil, with the objective of analyzing a health education process based on the social representations theory. The educational model was developed in two phases with 34 local residents. In the first phase, social representations of leishmaniasis were identified and analyzed. The second phase was based on the interaction between social representations and scientific knowledge. The results showed that social representations were structured in a central core by the terms "wound" and "mosquito" and in the peripheral system by ...

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 ...
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 ...

Now Harrington , (a real person by the way) who was a player of very moderate ability, loved to tell the experts what moves they should have made, and had the unfortunate habit of leaning across the table and grabbing hold of the players arm, pulling it back so as to retract the move in question. He would then proceed to show the experts where they had gone wrong ...
... 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?

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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). We are a Canadian family who, for various reasons, decided to uproot and relocate what sometimes seems like a lifetime away from all we know and those we love. 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 ...
When DC had the Montrealer, occasionally the OBS crew would go in together and order a couple of pizzas to be delivered trainside for the customs inspection stop Southbound at St. Albans. U. S. Customs (pre-9/11) would get on at the U. S. border and do their inspection of passengers enroute to St. Albans, then question any suspicious passengers in the lounge car as long as necessary after the train stopped in St. Albans. As long as they were on the train the rest of the passengers had to stay in their seats so the crew had a break and we would eat ...
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 ...
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was often bored by the tedious small talk that was required of him at social functions. He often felt as if those with whom he conversed were seldom paying attention to what was said. To prove his point, sometimes Roosevelt would begin a conversation by saying, I murdered my grandmother this morning. Often these words were met with polite approval. On one occasion, however, an attentive listener gave the witty reply ...
Its darn near perfect, easily the best the Essentials series has to offer. Theres so much information too digest and so many detailed maps that it really is the best reference book SW could hope for. My only hope is that they treat it like a real atlas and update it every few years. Keep all the old maps, update the relevant ones, eliminate the historical anecdotes from the first one, and add all new maps with new historical anecdotes ...
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. His brother Abu-Abd-All^, es-Saffi^h, succeeded him, and mainly owing to the exertions and ability of Abu-Muslim, Marw^n and his forces were driven from ...
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 ...
So recently I read a -very- interesting book entitled We Get Fat: And What to Do About It by Gary Taubes. His theory about weight gain is that caloric surplus is not the correct reason for gaining weight; the problem is that the modern diet includes a surplus of refined carbohydrates, hence the obesity epidemic in America. According to Taubes, losing weight is as simple as a few nutritional modifications in the form of limiting the intake of sugar, cereals, and fruit. Now, dont get me wrong,

Physicians who spend their lives treating patients have always lived with the social representations of health, disease, and medication. These social representations are construct images of a natural reality and are as old as the disease itself. Based on affective and cognitive predispositions, and often inhabited by fears, beliefs, and magical and supernatural elements, the function of social representations is to make something unusual and unknown familiar to the patient.. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and inhaled medications do not escape these social representation systems. The theory of social representations was first formulated by social psychologist Serge Moscovici in a paper published in France in 1961.1 I wonder, however, if COPD is not itself also represented in doctors who usually treat this complex disease in hospitals or in primary health care, and if their representation is haunted by dogmas and medical beliefs.. In COPD, as in many other chronic diseases, ...
Several epidemiological studies (4-8,16) have reported a higher prevalence of diabetes, insulin resistance, and cardiovascular disease in various ethnic groups including Native Americans and Canadians. Some studies (9,10) have reported increased levels of inflammatory markers and their association with insulin resistance or percent body fat in Aboriginal versus white populations. However, there are no reports that specifically address markers of insulin resistance and inflammatory markers in Aboriginal women compared with white women.. First Nation women had significantly greater total fat mass than white women and a greater proportion of their adipose mass as trunk fat. Differences in trunk fat explained the difference in insulin resistance observed between First Nation and white women. While there was no significant difference in the slope of the relationship between log HOMA-IR and total body fat in the two groups of women, First Nation women had a significantly higher intercept, indicating ...
The HIV Meds Access Campaign, which The AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) is part of, is asking people living with HIV/AIDS to share their stories about accessing medication and health care services. These personal anecdotes help us creatively and effectively demonstrate to state and federal lawmakers why programs that provide medication and care are critical for people living with HIV/AIDS. Additionally, these stories generate media attention on the importance of things like ADAP and the Ryan White Care Act.. As you know, were all facing a collective battle at both the state and federal levels when it comes to budget cuts to HIV/AIDS programs. Im hoping that you can take a moment to think of at least one or two people who have a particularly compelling story when it comes to HIV and health care access, and see if they might be willing to share their story with us here. We would also encourage you to forward this message to your network of colleagues and consumers. Please let folks know that we ...
Whoa, whoa… Hold on a second…. Now I know most of you are probably critically thinking, skeptically minded individuals who wont just accept any story without solid proof, or at least strong data, to at least cast a shadow of possibility on someones claims. And given the nature of anecdotes and what some "big S Skeptics" might rightfully point out that most anecdotal evidence is cherry-picked, you might not want to read what this article is about. I mean, the title of this post is "Anecdotal Evidence at [its] Best". But before you hand in that skeptic card, please remember the importance of anecdotal data in regards to science. Hell, the importance of it in everyday life. Humans have ALWAYS used anecdotal data as a starting point to a clear answer. Sometimes it takes longer than other times and more than likely, not everyone will agree with the result. Im not saying that EVERY important discovery was the result of some chestnut of personal experience or observation, but a lot have. Things ...
This story of two community colleges tells how they have dealt with the demands for data that state-mandated accountability requires. The story is based on research conducted at a large community college district in California. On the surface, the story might seem straightforward: accountability mandates led to the expansion of the Institutional Research Department, causing the schools to try to replace an outdated Student Information System in order to improve the districts overall access to data. However, the underlying story is more complicated. If it had a headline, it might be one of these: Why cant we get the data we need? A new system? What system? Is access to data really that important? This story looks at the community college district on multiple levels, weaving together anecdotes and experiences along with the underlying themes and tensions. It is an attempt to look at one component of the educational environment -- the one that links state policy-makers to the schools they oversee --
This book is part of Telling Our Stories, a humanities project at Austin College and contains the autobiographical anecdotes of Eleanor Monroe about her family and life in Sherman, Texas.
Since school counselors have large numbers of letters to write, it is easy for the quality of our letters to diminish. Therefore, it is important that we provide appropriate content and keep the interest of our audience. Also, we need to know how to tell our students stories. While teachers can tell the academic story of a student, our narrative should be about student growth. In addition to addressing growth, school counselors should point out students strengths and qualities. Examples can include past achievements, potential for growth, and commitment to the school community. Rather than chronologically listing a students resume (uh hum), highlighting a students involvement in community service, participation in sports, leadership ability, and passion for a particular subject can speak volumes! Another important point that colleges and scholarship committees look for is your relationship with that student. Speaking about a specific anecdote can show the committee that you really know this ...
Barbara Sansone and Jordi Salvadò: Can you tell us some anecdotes from your journey, something special that happened, some special encounter?. Cristian Bettini: There are many stories that stuck in my mind. In the Asturias I really liked the story from the past century of an Italian who went to live there to be a whale hunter. Yes, up until the past century there were whales in the Biscaglia gulf! It was also really nice to cross the mine areas, where theres a really important piece of history from the Spanish revolution, where the people are still generous and genuine. Say a person stops and sees you, they then go to the baker and get some bread for you. If you ask someone for directions, theyll invite you into their home. I met a pensioner who still had two years of prison sentence to go for having done union action when Franco died - these actions were carried out in the woods, because they were illegal. The last Maqui descended from the mountains during the 60s. Another interesting ...
I dont presume to know what is best for people, but I do feel the "other side" should be heard, and it angers me when they are all dismissed as crazy scientologists, or irresponsible people who are not reasonable. Annabel, I dont know how to answer you as you seem to think Im belittling the suffering of the mentally ill and denying the link between mind and body, neither of which are true. Anyway, I dont think much good has come from this discussion and it may soon get locked like altars other thread. I wish people would listen and take to heart the stories of people whove experienced harm on psyche medications, anecdotes though they are. Some will say "its only your experience and shouldnt be applied to everyone", well for years I dwelt in shame and silence thinking it WAS just me and no one else was experiencing these things. However on the internet there ARE many people with stories similar to my own, for example in the links altar posted ...
Note: There has been a rising number of toxic blue-green algae outbreaks hitting bodies of water all around the world in the last couple of years or so. The biosphere - the environment - is obviously changing in ways that are beneficial to these species of algae. I was wondering when toxic blue-green algae would affect a large municipal water supply like this, and here we go. Massive societal disturbance here, people buying up all the bottled water off store shelves, price-gouging, people fighting each other in parking lots, etc. I saw one anecdote that said people were trying to sell ONE bottle of water (size not specified) for TWENTY-FIVE BUCKS! Two gallons of water per day per person - Id recommend stashing enough for at least a week or two, wherever you are, if you havent already, just in case this same problem should hit your own area. That way if something goes terribly wrong then you wont have to be in those parking lots or looking at bare shelves with a sad frown. Like most anything, ...
Published: October 18, 2016. Employers tell these tales in an effort to get new employees onboard with their company values and culture. However, a study recently published in the Academy of Management Journalrevealed that newcomers who are exposed to inspirational stories of company leaders are no more committed to the organizations values and no more helpful to co-workers than those who are not exposed. Instead, employers are better off sharing anecdotes about the rank and file. The research found that new workers are much more likely to be inspired by hearing stories of co-workers to whom they can relate.. Read the entire article.... ...
In Gulp. Adventures on the Alimentary Canal, science writer Mary Roach takes a journey through the gut, from the secret healing powers of saliva to the taxonomy of poop. Along the trip, she serves up odd medical anecdotes, such as the story of William Beaumont, an eccentric surgeon who once ate chicken from another mans stomach.
The Guardian. And now heres the news they didnt tell you. You might remember the scare stories about mercury fillings from the past two decades: they come around every few years, usually accompanied by a personal anecdote, where fatigue, dizziness and headaches are all vanquished with the removal of the fillings by one visionary dentist. Traditionally these stories conclude with a suggestion that the dental establishment may well be covering up the truth about mercury, and a demand for more research into its safety.. Well, the first large scale randomised control trials on the safety of mercury fillings were published just two weeks ago, and Ive been waiting to see these hotly awaited results pop up in the newspapers, but nothing doing so far. They studied more than 1,000 children, some were given mercury fillings and some mercury-free fillings. Then they measured kidney function and various neurodevelopmental outcomes such as memory, coordination, nerve conduction, IQ, and so on, over ...
Before I show you my favorite sign, I will tell you the only personal anecdote I can think of involving a chalkboard in a public space. In downtown DC there used to be a bookstore called Olssons Books that had an espresso/sandwich bar, as so many do. All of the sandwiches were named after authors, and they didnt have a printed menu--just the names of all the sandwiches and drinks written on a gigantic, lavishly illustrated chalkboard behind the counter ...

Theres nothing quite like those moments -- those rare public moments when the child youve spent years of your life raising as a kind, empathetic and polite human being opens his mouth...and says the most impulsive, selfish and socially tone-deaf thing he could possibly come up with. In front of God, everybody and at least 50 other adults with video cameras. So I left a little anecdote out of my entry about Noahs belt test. Because...well, it wasnt exactly the sort of story I felt deserved to be preserved for posterity. At least...not at first. At first it was one of those lets forget THAT ever happened stories. So Noah was waiting for his turn to break his board. Its the last task of the test, the big moment that signals your successful graduation to the next belt level, the part where everybody claps and cheers for you, and not to mention, is completely fucking awesome, because you get to break a damn board with your fist. But the little girl ahead of Noah was not getting that completely
January 2011) Body image and fitness are hot topics for both men and women. The Great Fitness Experiment is my hilarious, poignant, embarrassing, and at times, heart-breaking journey to find my way through the morass of contradictory claims and information in todays health- and fitness-obsessed world. I try out a new workout each month in an attempt to discover what works, what doesnt, and whats just plain weird. In this book I detail my first year of Experiments, delving into such subjects as the Action Hero Workout, Cross Fit Training, Going Vegan, Double Cardio, and others. Interspersed between the chapters on the monthly experiments, I include personal essays on everything from my past experiences with eating disorders to testing the ugliest fitness shoes on the planet to lessons about what Ive learned from being a girl in our body-obsessed culture. I write candidly about my history of anorexia, orthorexia, and "general-low-self-esteem-exia," including anecdotes about the effects of the ...
He who has a Why to live for can bear almost any How." - Friedrich Nietzsche W hy are we here? What is the meaning of life? Existential questions such as these are captivating and considered fundamental to the human condition. Religions, philosophers, and scientists alike have sought answers for the human race as a whole, but the search for meaning also can be personal. People s perception of their own purpose may have profound consequences not only for the legacy they leave behind for others but also for the quality and quantity of their own life. We ve all heard anecdotes of people who have suffered tragedies only to persevere with newfound purpose and zest for life. These stories are certainly inspirational, but what if meaning also could soothe inflammation or protect neurons? What if finding purpose in your life could reduce your risk of dementia or stroke? That s the focus of research into what is now called Purpose in Life (PIL). Interest in PIL, or the " mind-body axis, " has ...
Ellis Owens engaging narrative style makes compelling reading. The narrative is based on anecdotes - some comical, some serious - drawn from the authors own experiences. Ellis Owens success in beating his addiction and regaining his reputation in Welsh life, both on and off screen, has put him in a unique position to write this self-help book. All proceeds from the book will be donated towards setting up a free, bilingual day-care rehabilitation centre in Cardiff. This unique project, known as "The Living Room Cardiff/Yr Ystafell Fyw Caerdydd" is in its infancy and, once up and running, will offer help for anyone experiencing difficulties relating to alcohol, drugs (prescribed or illicit), or any other dependency, such as eating disorders, sex addiction, gambling and self-harm ...
on a "what Im reading" spot on Amit Mainis EDTCC Blog recently, and thought it looked interesting, so bought myself the Kindle version, and read it a couple of days on my iphone.. The author (Atul Gawande), an American surgeon, delves into the story behind his recruitment into a project to develop surgical checklists. He was directly involved in the development of a checklist, which was distributed internationally by WHO and was shown to drastically improve patient safety and reduce morbidity and mortality.. His research covered areas as diverse as business, skyscraper building, fast-food, disaster management, aviation and of course, medicine. The book contains a fascinating plethora of anecdotes showing how checklists are used in all of these industries (and many more) to improve outcomes.. The underlying theme is about simplifying processes that we as modern professionals, in industries where the volume and complexity of information we are expected to know has outstripped our ability to ...
Most of all, though, Linsanity is just fun. There are plenty of amusing anecdotes herein (Lin talking about asking then-Knicks coach Mike DAntoni about whether he should ship out his car to New York, or continue to take taxis everywhere), and candid personal bits that most newly famous personalities would blanch at sharing. (In reminiscing about his favorite childhood blankets, Lin ranks Lion King just ahead of Garfield, with a deep sincerity). Linsanity reveals a lot about not only its subjects journey but his inner life, which makes one happy for Lins success even more. In an era of carefully scrubbed, homogenous sports personalities, heres a guy not afraid to open up about his self-doubt, and the twin pillars of faith and family that helped him persevere.

You certainly cant tell an Australian by the way they look, but the minute they open their mouths, the guessing is over. The cultural DNA in this country is in the sound of the way Australians speak. But why do we speak the way we do? And what exactly is the Australian accent? These and other issues are brought to the screen in The Sounds of Aus - the national conversation we had to have. It premieres Thursday 8 November, 8.30pm on ABC TV.. Hosted by John Clarke, this entertaining story about the way we sound is told through an array of illuminating interviews with linguists, historians, social and political commentators, comedians, actors, and plenty of opinionated people with genuinely hilarious anecdotes. Those featured include Rachel Griffiths, Bruce Beresford, Bert Newton, Max Gillies, Denise Scott, Mary-Anne Fahey, Santo Cilauro, Simon Palomares and Akmal Saleh.. Is our accent really the legendary broad "Strine" of Paul Hogan and Steve Irwin? Why is it so hard for others to do? Are there ...
There are as many roads to penury as there are paupers to follow them. As a writer, I always tried to see my own journey as material for nostalgic anecdotes to be delivered during acceptance speeches at some national awards galas. I like to imagine my struggles as leisurely, rather loopy jaunts.
Modern city-dwellers suffer their share of unpleasant experiences - traffic jams, noisy neighbours, pollution, food scares - but urban nuisances of the past existed on a different scale entirely, this book explains in vivid detail. Focusing on offences to the eyes, ears, noses, taste buds, and skin of inhabitants of Englands pre-Industrial Revolution cities, Hubbub transports us to a world in which residents were scarred by small pox, refuse rotted in the streets, pigs and dogs roamed free, and food hygiene consisted of little more than spit and polish. Through the stories of a large cast of characters from varied walks of life, the book compares what daily life was like in different cities across England from 1600 to 1770. Using a vast array of sources, from novels to records of urban administration to diaries, Emily Cockayne populates her book with anecdotes from the quirky lives of the famous and the obscure - all of whom confronted urban nuisances and physical ailments. Each chapter ...
At the end of the South Cloisters of the main building of UCL stands a wooden cabinet, which has been a source of curiosity and perplexity to visitors. The cabinet contains Benthams preserved skeleton, dressed in his own clothes, and surmounted by a wax head. Bentham requested that his body be preserved in this way in his will made shortly before his death on 6 June 1832. The cabinet was moved to UCL in 1850.. Not surprisingly, this peculiar relic has given rise to numerous legends and anecdotes. One of the most commonly recounted is that the Auto-Icon regularly attends meetings of the College Council, and that it is solemnly wheeled into the Council Room to take its place among the present-day members. Its presence, it is claimed, is always recorded in the minutes with the words Jeremy Bentham - present but not voting. Another version of the story asserts that the Auto-Icon does vote, but only on occasions when the votes of the other Council members are equally split. In these cases the ...
Apropos of nothing heres a short story on online dating Ive been working on. As with so many anecdotes the idea behind this one traces its origins to a bar. I got talking to a chap who worked for an large gambling establishment. We had a shared interest in big data; I told him about some Twitter metadata projects, he told me about the information they had on their customers (quite a lot) and how they use it (you can probably imagine). Fast forward to a similar pub and once more Im discussing big data. This time its with a sales guy who tells me I wouldnt recognise the name of the company he works for. I dont push it. His company specialises in talking to companies that produce biometric data from pedometers, phones, workout trackers, sleep cycle apps, calorie counters and fitness games. They buy this data, aggregate it, remove personal information insofar as is required by privacy policies, and then sell the results to interested parties. Actuaries love the stuff. A few drinks later he ...
Science" is the bludgeon that the anti smokers have used in their cause. Us vapers need to be on top of the science. Every time the "science" club is raised as a weapon against us, we need to assail it with our own weapon - science! There is good science and there is bad "science". If we are simply aware that our science needs to be the good kind, we will proceed well. Science begins with observation and anecdote. It is statistically without doubt that vaping helps smokers to not smoke. Every vaper who tells their story anywhere - to their next door neighbour, to their doctor, on YouTube, on face book, in a blog, is increasing the anecdotal evidence for our science. Every vaper who explains how their smokers cough has vanished, how their breath has returned, how good they feel, is increasing anecdotal evidence for our science. Every vaper that observes to at least another person how vaping has improved their lives, is a scientist for vaping ...
With "Move-In Day" madness behind them, first-year Carnegie Mellon students recently sat down in small groups with faculty and staff to share their reflections on "The Last Lecture.". Prior to their arrival on campus, all incoming students were sent a copy of the New York Times bestselling book based on Randy Pauschs now-famous talk. Reading the book was a first assignment of sorts - aimed at inspiring them to live the life of their dreams.. Molly Walter, who is planning to major in computer science, received the book in the mail and found mention of her dad. Hes the Pittsburgh author who introduced Pausch to William Shatner.. "The thing I loved the most about the book was how you would open it up to the first page expecting a horribly sad story about death, but even by the time you finished that first page," Walter said, "you knew you were about to read some truly inspiring anecdotes about the exact opposite.". Samuel Liang Cheng - who is also studying to be a computer scientist - had already ...
I thought it might be useful for new readers to understand a bit about my comments policy and how Ive come this stance. Let me give you an example of one individual who occasionally left comments on my blog, often combative, though just on the legitimate side of the trolling boundary. One of the major tactics of argument of this individual was to impute upon me particular life experiences which he thought I must have had, and so shaped my opinions. Though I do not share much about my personal life online, I do go by my "real name," and over 11+ years of writing on the internet one can construct a rough narrative from stray anecdotes. The key is though that this picture is rough. After one exchange where my interlocutor made an inference based on his own perception of various likelihoods about me, I tired of the one sided game (he was anonymous), and looked him upon on Facebook. I left a quick comment to that effect, and asserted now the scales were somewhat balanced. He never left a comment ...
I was excited for this seminar. I use some of the principle in treatment, but was looking for a deeper understanding of the diagnosis and treatment applications, and who better than to learn from. To the devotees of 5-Element, Judy is a living first degree relic of their messiah. This was also her first conference and she admitted to reluctance and lack of tech-savvy which should have given the organizers pause. This could have been a bang-up seminar and for the 5E folks, it probably was, but I left with the same knowledge I came in with. Well, I did learn a lot about her personal life as lover, wife, and widow of her mentor JR Worsley and about general farming practices in the English countryside. I was hoping for something along the lines of practical application of theory I had in school, but what I got was a half an hour of education and 7.5 hours of anecdotes and on-going audience questions and testimonials that kept the lecture from getting anywhere. I now understand why it take 4 years to ...
Kathy the Cake Eater reports in on her reading of Right Ho, Jeeves and finds she.....likes it.. Because Kathy is also a writer (and as such, worries a lot about the mechanics of writing), Ill pass along a little anecdote I recollect regarding someone elses effort to tweak the curtain away from Wodehouses writing. Apparently, Wodehouse was once asked how he managed to create such wonderful stories. His reply was, "Oh, I dont know. I just sit down at the typewriter and swear a bit.". Im very happy you enjoyed it, Kathy. Posted by Robert at January 6, 2005 04:25 PM ...
I didnt realize this until I saw the NYFF Q&A with Jonathan Demme and Paul Le Mat (I posted it in another thread for those who are curious), but Brickman also wrote Citizens Band. He also served as the associate producer, and Demme has an amusing anecdote where Brickman became so intrusive on his creative decisions that one of his producers (or assistant directors?) offered to get run Brickman out of town. The experience may have motivated Brickman to direct a film himself, but regardless, Citizens Band is a favorite and he deserves credit for the script, for which he is solely credited ...
Assuming for a moment that youve both done this exercise, compare notes, talk, then use your lists and anecdotes as grist for relational improvement. As needed, talk with a counselor alone or together about these lists. If, as you talk about these things with your partner, one or both of you become either blaming or defensive, set a timer so that neither of you goes on and on (which can make the other defensive or bored or blaming). I suggest three minutes for each description or example of each bad habit (without interruption!). If either of you takes more than the allotted time or interrupts start the particular point over. If one of you tells the story by blaming, start it over. If one of you becomes defensive, start it over ...
I posted this to a thread, but realize it did not belong there. I talked to a friend of mine this morning about a trip to Italy, Greece and Spain. We talked about the general troubles. But then came the very telling anecdote: Shopkeepers have signs at registers saying that they are accepting USD (cash) at parity with Euro. This reminded me of stories from Argentina. It looks as if the shopkeepers have decided how this is likely to end. They are hoarding dollars to hedge the likely

You find my thinking jumbled and confused, the quantity and register of my speech is fluctuating wildly. But Im also hyper-attentive to language, as anyone would be in a high stakes situation (was that "talk to" or "torture"?). In an idle moment a nurse at the foot of my bed has concluded an anecdote with a hearty "I could have killed him," and perhaps she thought that was boring or inaudible, but I heard it. And I thought you wanted me to hear it, that it was in the script. (Just as Im sure you wanted me to hear the sounds of pain just the other side of that curtain.) Because for now, you and I differ about what we think this building, this institution, is for ...

History is laced with examples of individuals who have experienced states of powerfully heightened awareness. Known as Peak Experiences (PEs), these periods of extreme mental, emotional, and creative invigoration have often resulted in great achievements. Bestselling author Colin Wilson has long pursued the nature of PEs, and here are the results of his 40-year investigation. Through a wealth of engaging anecdotes, he reveals how the PEs of such historical figures as Yeats, Blake, and Sartre, among others, influenced their work. Plus, he offers clues to unlocking this spiritual power in our own lives.. Ã Â ...

Specific descriptions of performance of a given task at several different levels of quality. Teachers use rubrics to evaluate student performance on performance tasks. Students are often given the rubric, or may even help develop it, so they know in advance what they are expected to do. For example, the content of an oral presentation might be evaluated using the following rubric:. Level 4-The main idea is well developed, using important details and anecdotes. The information is accurate and impressive. The topic is thoroughly developed within time constraints.. Level 3-The main idea is reasonably clear and supporting details are adequate and relevant. The information is accurate. The topic is adequately developed within time constraints but is not complete.. Level 2-The main idea is not clearly indicated. Some information is inaccurate. The topic is supported with few details and is sketchy and incomplete.. Level 1-A main idea is not evident. The information has many inaccuracies. The topic is ...
Id take it one step further. Reality and truth intertwine, weaving in and out of each other like flowering vines on a trellis. Reality is the vine, shiftin g, changing with the winds, sprouting new tendrils with every new interpretation. Truth is the trellis.

We use the terms subjective truth and objective truth to attempt to separate anecdote and experience from scientific methods and consensus. Is such a separation truly possible, though? And when did society find the need to exchange the words experience and fact for the euphemisms of subjective truth and objective truth?. Yes, these phrases are euphemisms.

None of this is surprising.. If i position myself as a data miner (one of my skillsets) i get asked where my Phd in advanced stats is, and get paid 50% (or less) of what i get offered as a BI, DSS, DW, or DB architect professional. No Phd required.... Further, as i consider it a really interesting, socially beneficial, and rewarding line of work, i looked at roles being offered by the NCISs high-tech unit (a year or two ago), and the salaries and remit were less than attractive.. So am i astonished that they are (mostly) staffed by MOUS-qualified staff who think a mailmerge, pivottable, or auto-import from .CSV is high-tech? Not really. Will they have some great people who do it for passion? Probably. Will they be decision makers and architects? Unlikely. Am i working there? Not on your nelly - id be arrested for murder of colleagues, and my defense of self-defense and/or euthenasia would not hold water:).

Research and anecdotes have suggested a number of ways cell phones may adversely affect your health -- and they may not be what you think.
Savvy biotech companies developing, say, cancer drugs, will have to do more in the future than just look at whether a new drug is safe and kills tumors, according to Roger Longman. Theyll also measure things that really count for payers, like length of hospital stays, and -- set aside your bowl of Cheerios -- how much time it might save nurses from having to clean up vomit.. Longman, the CEO of Real Endpoints and former managing director of Windhover Information, made this point last week during a private dinner at Seattles Four Seasons Hotel, which was hosted by Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. He told an anecdote about a biotech CEO whos developing an oncology medicine thats somewhat better than the standard of care. Nurses, the CEO said, really like the thing because it doesnt cause patients to vomit as much as other treatments. That means the nurses save time, and their time can be better spent doing other things.. Smart biotechs, Longman said, had better start thinking along these ...
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 ...

Climate change is a major current affair for which recent United Nations climate conferences aim to build consensus and develop international solutions. The objective of this article is to compare, through the theoretical lens of social representations, the way in which French and German media, specifically newspapers, represent the Bali climate conference. We use the triangulation of data analysis to take both the pragmatic and the semantic aspects of media discourse into account. Results show that German media adopt both a local and a global vision of climate change and of the conference. Religious metaphors highlight a moral dimension of the conference, suggesting anchoring in human and political categories. In contrast, in French media, we identify that conflicts between countries render the stakes of climate change concrete by war metaphors. The French discourses examined are shown to be organised through the anchoring of political and financial categories. Results are discussed in relation ...
These headlines might raise some questions: Does waxing or shaving my pubic area decrease my risk of crabs, but increase my risk of molluscum contagiosum? Should I shave or not? The answers to these questions arent quite as simple as the headlines make them out to be. Lets take them one by one.. Does Waxing Prevent Pubic Lice Infestations?. The claim: As reported in the media, pubic lice are disappearing, and the Brazilian wax is the culprit. Articles cite statistics that pubic-hair removal is more popular among young people, and then jump to the conclusion that this trendy hairlessness is spurring a decrease in pubic-lice prevalence.. What the science says: The problem with this claim is that it isnt backed by solid scientific data - its supported by anecdotes from doctors who have noticed a decline in pubic lice among their patients. As the saying goes, though, the plural of anecdote is not data: Without well-designed population studies spanning many years, we cant actually know if there ...

This book collects the published articles of Dr. Marjorie Topley, who was a pioneer in the field of social anthropology in the postwar period. Her ethnographic research in Singapore and Hong Kong sets a high standard for urban anthropology. Dr. Topleys publications reflect her training in British social anthropology, with its focus on fieldwork and detailed empirical observation. She was among the first to refine and extend those methods in the 1950s, adapting them to the study of modernizing urban settings like Singapore and Hong Kong. Her ethnographic research on the Great Way of Former Heaven sectarian movement and Cantonese womens vegetarian halls in Singapore in the 1950s was an early contribution to the study of sub-cultural groups in a complex urban society, and she asked insightful questions about the relationship between religion, secularism, and modernity. She also broke new ground in the field of Chinese medical anthropology.
Only overt extraalveolar air is covered in this chapter. The reader is referred to Chapter 42 for a discussion of lung damage at the tissue or subcellular level related to mechanical lung distension and the application of positive pressure to the airways. Because data from laboratory studies are covered extensively in that discussion, this chapter deals primarily with barotrauma as a complication in patients, referring mainly to the adult clinical literature. As will be apparent, although the latter is replete with anecdotes and observational reports, this focus primarily on human data means that the evidence base in terms of prospective studies and "hard data" available to the clinician is remarkably limited. Spontaneous pneumothorax and other forms of extraalveolar air encountered in patients who are not intubated or receiving mechanical ventilation are not dealt with extensively here, nor is decompression-related barotrauma or bronchopleural fistula complicating lung resection. ...
