Toward sensitive practice: issues for physical therapists working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. (1/966)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The high rates of prevalence of childhood sexual abuse in the United States and Canada suggest that physical therapists work, often unknowingly, with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The purposes of this qualitative study were to explore the reactions of adult female survivors of childhood sexual abuse to physical therapy and to listen to their ideas about how practitioners could be more sensitive to their needs. The dynamics and long-term sequelae of childhood sexual abuse, as currently understood by mental health researchers and as described by the participants, are summarized to provide a context for the findings of this study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Twenty-seven female survivors (aged 19-62 years) participated in semistructured interviews in which they described their reactions to physical therapy. RESULTS: Survivors' reactions to physical therapy, termed "long-term sequelae of abuse that detract from feeling safe in physical therapy," are reported. Participant-identified suggestions that could contribute to the sense of safety are shared. CONCLUSIONS AND DISCUSSION: Although the physical therapist cannot change the survivor's history, an appreciation of issues associated with child sexual abuse theoretically can increase clinicians' understanding of survivors' reactions during treatment. We believe that attention by the physical therapist to the client's sense of safety throughout treatment can maximize the benefits of the physical therapy experience for the client who is a survivor.  (+info)

Visual cues to female physical attractiveness. (2/966)

Evolutionary psychology suggests that a woman's sexual attractiveness is based on cues of health and reproductive potential. In recent years, research has focused on the ratio of the width of the waist to the width of the hips (the waist-to-hip ratio (WHR). A low WHR (i.e. a curvaceous body) is believed to correspond to the optimal fat distribution for high fertility, and so this shape should be highly attractive. In this paper we present evidence that weight scaled for height (the body mass index (BMI)) is the primary determinant of sexual attractiveness rather than WHR. BMI is also strongly linked to health and reproductive potential. Furthermore, we show how covariation of apparent BMI and WHR in previous studies led to the overestimation of the importance of WHR in the perception of female attractiveness. Finally, we show how visual cues, such as the perimeter-area ratio (PAR), can provide an accurate and reliable index of an individual's BMI and could be used by an observer to differentiate between potential partners.  (+info)

Neglect after right insular cortex infarction. (3/966)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Case reports have shown an association between right insular damage and neglect. The aim of this study was to examine the incidence of neglect among patient groups with right or left insular infarction. METHODS: We examined neglect in 9 right-handed subjects with insular stroke as evidenced by CT and/or MRI scans (4 with right insular and 5 with left insular cerebrovascular accident) between 4 and 8 weeks after acute stroke with tests of visual, tactile, and auditory perception. RESULTS: Compared with patients with left insular lesions, patients with right insular lesions showed significant neglect in the tactile, auditory, and visual modalities. CONCLUSIONS: The right insular cortex seems to have a role in awareness of external stimuli, and infarction in this area may lead to neglect in multisensory modalities.  (+info)

Body piercing medical concerns with cutting-edge fashion. (4/966)

OBJECTIVE: To review the current information on medical complications, psychological implications, and legislative issues related to body piercing, a largely unregulated industry in the United States. METHODS: We conducted a MEDLINE search of English language articles from 1966 until May 1998 using the search terms "body piercing" and "ear piercing." Bibliographies of these references were reviewed for additional citations. We also conducted an Internet search for "body piercing" on the World Wide Web. MAIN RESULTS: In this manuscript, we review the available body piercing literature. We conclude that body piercing is an increasingly common practice in the United States, that this practice carries substantial risk of morbidity, and that most body piercing in the United States is being performed by unlicensed, unregulated individuals. Primary care physicians are seeing growing numbers of patients with body pierces. Practitioners must be able to recognize, treat, and counsel patients on body piercing complications and be alert to associated psychological conditions in patients who undergo body piercing.  (+info)

Relative importance of heritable characteristics and lifestyle in the development of maternal obesity. (5/966)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To assess the relative importance of heritable characteristics and lifestyle in the development of "maternal obesity" after pregnancy. SETTING: South east London, in the homes of mothers who had delivered their babies at either Guy's, Lewisham or St Thomas's hospitals. PARTICIPANTS: Seventy four mothers of low antenatal risk who had been enrolled in the Antenatal Care (ANC) Project (a previous trial of antenatal care) during the first trimester of pregnancy, and who had subsequently been followed up 2.5 years after delivery. DESIGN: Information on parental obesity, psychosocial and sociodemographic factors as well as lifestyle, was gathered during a semi-structured interview at each mother's home. Additional anthropometric and psychosocial data were taken from the existing ANC Project database. These data were used to assess the relative importance of heritable characteristics and lifestyle on changes in maternal body weight from the beginning of pregnancy to the follow up interview. MAIN RESULTS: After adjusting for the effects of potential confounders and known risk factors for maternal obesity, women who selected larger silhouettes to represent their biological mothers were significantly more likely to have higher long term weight gains than those who selected thinner maternal silhouettes (r = 0.083, p = 0.004). Women who were less satisfied with their bodies postpartum had significantly greater long term weight gains than those women who displayed no increase in dissatisfaction with their bodies after pregnancy (r = 0.067, p = 0.010). CONCLUSIONS: A heritable predisposition to gain weight together with changing attitudes to body size, both had an independent role in the development of maternal body weight after pregnancy. Differences in each woman's heritable predisposition to gain weight and any changes in body image that occur after pregnancy might explain why some women gain weight in association with pregnancy.  (+info)

Does bracing affect self-image? A prospective study on 54 patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. (6/966)

To evaluate the effect of brace treatment on self-image in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, 54 consecutive patients admitted for brace treatment were interviewed before bracing. A prevalidated questionnaire including the following five aspects of self-image was used: (1) body-image, (2) self-perception of skills and talents, (3) emotional well-being, (4) relations with family, and (5) relations with others. As a control group, the answers of 3465 normal school children were used. Forty-six patients participated in a follow-up interview 1.7 (range 0.8-3.0) years later. In addition, during the first interview, the scoliosis patients answered selected questions about their social circumstances and attitudes towards their forthcoming brace treatment. Grossly, the patient group lived in stable family conditions with a high percentage (40%) of fathers and/or mothers with an academic education or with a high employee status. The patients' relations with families were generally good. Nearly all believed that the brace would affect their posture, but only a few thought that wearing the brace would influence their growth. Two-thirds believed that it would be difficult to wear the brace, and often reflected on the use of it. There were no statistically significant differences between the scoliosis patients and the age-matched controls at the pre-bracing nor at the follow-up interviews. Neither were there any statistically significant differences between the answers of the scoliosis patients in the pre-bracing and follow-up interviews. This was valid for the total score as well as for each subscale item score. It is concluded that wearing the brace does not affect the self-image of adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis negatively.  (+info)

Student bodies: psycho-education communities on the web. (7/966)

We have developed a Web-delivered, multimedia health educational program, Student Bodies, designed to improve body satisfaction, a probable risk factor for the development of eating disorders in young women. The program includes psycho-educational content and a newsgroup for communication, and is delivered in a structured framework of weekly readings, assignments and postings to the newsgroup. Intervention group participants improved their body image, and reduced other attitudes that predispose to eating disorders.  (+info)

Psychotherapeutic practice in paediatric oncology: four examples. (8/966)

Psychotherapy, often used with children treated for a solid tumour, is seldom described. We present four examples of such therapies: a mother who refused enucleation for her 7-month-old boy; a boy's jealousy towards his sister who was being treated for a brain tumour; a teenager troubled by his scar; a 7-year-old boy embarrassed by the unconscious memory of his treatment when he was 5 months old. All names have been changed, for reasons of privacy. Psychotherapies aim to help children and parents to cope with the violent experience of having cancer, to recover their freedom of thought and decision-making concerning their life, their place in the family, their body image, their self-esteem, their identity. These descriptions of brief psychotherapy could help paediatricians to gain a more thorough understanding of the child's experience, to improve collaboration with psychotherapists and to confront clinical skills of psychotherapists.  (+info)

The purpose of this study was to determine the racial and ethnic differences on body image perceptions and weight concerns of fourth grade girls. A purposive sample of 182 fourth grade girls were eligible to participate, 166 were included in the data analysis. The Childrens Eating Attitude Test (ChEAT) and a Dieting and Demographic Questionnaire (DDQ) were used to determine eating attitudes of fourth grade girls. A pictoral instrument that was modified from the original was used to assess body image. Anthropometric data was assessed and body mass index (BMI) values were used to classify subjects into percentiles. Results revealed that 56% of all fourth grade girls studied wanted to be thinner and 53% had tried to lose weight. Significantly more non-Hispanic white (NHW) girls reported wanting to be thinner than non-Hispanic black (NHB) and H girls (65.5% vs.32% and 47%, respectively, P=0.005) No significant racial/ethnic differences were revealed for the ChEAT scores. However, 19% of all subjects
This study systematically reviewed the evidence for personality as a correlate of body image. Electronic databases and reference lists were searched in May 2016 for studies reporting an association between at least one dimension of personality and at least one component of negative body image. Twenty-six studies (33 discrete samples) met inclusion criteria. Sixteen samples were coded as medium-high quality. The results indicated that negative body image was associated with higher levels of Neuroticism and lower levels of Extraversion. Agreeableness was not related to body image, and findings for Conscientiousness and Openness were indeterminate. After taking study quality into account, negative body image was also associated with lower levels of Conscientiousness. Neuroticism was associated with negative body image in both women and men. Sex moderation effects for Extraversion, Openness, and Conscientiousness were indeterminate. Large-sample, prospective studies of personality and body image are
In contrast, having a healthy view of your physical self will mean your body image perception will more or less match your expectations. In that case, it may not mean you are completely satisfied with your body either, but chances are that you are accepting and comfortable with the way your body looks. As a consequence, one of the greatest challenges about unhealthy body image is that, in some cases, it may have nothing to do with actual physical appearance or body weight, meaning that the image you get in the mirror may be somewhat distorted by the way you feel or think about yourself ...
The sport of cheerleading is growing both in the high school and college setting, however there is little research on cheerleaders specifically, both sideline and competitive. It is clear that while this sport does not benefit from being affiliated with the NCAA, the athletes are still at large risk for disordered eating and eating disorders, and are in need of more accurate screening and prevention methods. With the lack of cheerleading studies in general, there is an even larger scarcity of studies that focus on males in cheerleading. The current study aims to fill the gap in the research regarding disordered eating risk in both male and female Division I cheerleaders by analyzing the perceived level of body satisfaction. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to gain more awareness on the body perceptions of collegiate cheerleaders, and investigate if male cheerleaders suffer from similar levels of disordered eating and body image issues as compared to their female counterparts.

The objectives of the study were to determine the nutrient intakes and to examine body image perceptions and weight concerns of elite female US international synchronized skaters. One hundred and twenty-three skaters (mean age = 17.0 ± 2.1 y; BMI = 21.32 ± 2.13) representing six US international synchronized skating teams from the 1998 competitive season participated in the study. Nutrient intakes were determined from 3-d dietary records. Body image perceptions were assessed from responses to silhouette drawings. Skaters completed an emotional and physical self-appraisal. Weight concerns were assessed using a self-administered validated weight history questionnaire. The reported energy intake was 26 kcal/kg. The contribution of carbohydrate, fat, and protein to total energy intake was 62%, 23%, and 15% for younger (14-18 y) and 62%, 24%, and 14%, respectively, for the older (19-30 y) skaters. Significant differences (P , 0.001) were observed between perceived ideal and current body shapes. The ...
BALTIMORE - College cheerleaders are at high risk for body image issues and eating disorders - and may be affected by how revealing their uniforms are, according to a study presented today at the American College of Sports Medicines 57th Annual Meeting in Baltimore.. Toni Torres-McGehee, Ph.D., ATC, studied 136 Division-I and Division-II college cheerleaders to determine if position (base, flyer, etc.) and clothing requirements (daily clothes vs. full or midriff uniforms) affected eating disorder incidence or body image dissatisfaction. Participants were surveyed for weight, height and perceived ideal weight.. Although position did not appear to be a factor, cheerleaders overall were highly disposed to eating disorders: 33.1 percent had some risk of eating disorder characteristics and/or behaviors. Cheerleaders on teams with midriff uniforms were most disposed to body-image issues.. Maladaptive body image and eating behaviors can form during youth and last a lifetime, Torres-McGehee said. ...

The present study was conducted to develop a Multi-dimensional Body Image Scale for Malaysian female adolescents. Data were collected among 328 female adolescents from a secondary school in Kuantan district, state of Pahang, Malaysia by using a self-administered questionnaire and anthropometric measurements. The self-administered questionnaire comprised multiple measures of body image, Eating Attitude Test (EAT-26; Gamer & Garfinkel, 1979) and Rosenberg Self-esteem Inventory (Rosenberg, 1965). The 152 items from selected multiple measures of body image were examined through factor analysis and for internal consistency. Correlations between Multi-dimensional Body Image Scale and body mass index (BMI), risk of eating disorders and self-esteem were assessed for construct validity. A seven factor model of a 62-item Multi-dimensional Body Image Scale for Malaysian female adolescents with construct validity and good internal consistency was developed. The scale encompasses 1) preoccupation with ...
In the United States, the ideal appearance for both men and women is simply defined as young, fit, and thin (Becker, Diedrichs, Jankowski, & Werchan, 2013). Focus on the value of the idealized body is associated with habitual concern over ones appearance (Fredrickson & Roberts, 1997). One manifestation of such concern is negative body talk, a general term encompassing discussion about ones physical appearance (Engeln, Sladek, & Waldron, 2013). Body talk which focuses on weight (fat talk) is common, especially among White women, and may have both positive and negative consequences (Britton, Martz, Bazzini, Curtin, & LeaShomb, 2006). Although it has been less commonly studied, negative body talk has been identified in men (Engeln, et al, 2013) and may vary by ethnicity (Nichter, 2000). Our study experimentally examines the effects of negative body talk, specifically fat talk, on college men and women at a Historically Black University. Both men and women frequently engage in negative body talk
TY - JOUR. T1 - Contextual body image and athletes disordered eating: The role of athletic body image in disordered eating in elite women athletes. AU - de Bruin, A.P.. AU - Oudejans, R.R.D.. AU - Bakker, F.C.. AU - Woertman, L.. PY - 2011. Y1 - 2011. N2 - The present study investigated the contribution of a contextual body image perspective to understanding disordered eating in high performance women athletes. Because existing questionnaires were not suitable for measuring body image in the contexts of sport and daily life, we developed the Contextual Body Image Questionnaire for Athletes (CBIQA) in which body image is divided into appearance, muscularity, thin-fat self-evaluations and thin-fat perceived opinions of others, in both contexts. In Study 1, the internal validity and reliability of this questionnaire was established in a general, heterogeneous sample of female sport participants and exercisers. In Study 2, the external validity was determined in a sample of 52 high ...
This article considers the following: appearance concerns and perceptions of body size in people without a diagnosed eating disorder; the challenges to both psychological and physical health posed by the environment; the links between weight-related appearance concerns and disordered eating; and how to raise awareness of the potential physical health risks of overweight/obesity without fuelling appearance concerns and/or using stigmatizing appearance-related messages.
BACKGROUND: Body image (BI) and body satisfaction may be important in understanding weight loss behaviors, particularly during the postpartum period. We assessed these constructs among African American and white overweight postpartum women. METHODS: The sample included 162 women (73 African American and 89 white) in the intervention arm 6 months into the Active Mothers Postpartum (AMP) Study, a nutritional and physical activity weight loss intervention. BIs, self-reported using the Stunkard figure rating scale, were compared assessing mean values by race. Body satisfaction was measured using body discrepancy (BD), calculated as perceived current image minus ideal image (BD,0: desire to be heavier; BD,0: desire to be lighter). BD was assessed by race for: BD(Ideal) (current image minus the ideal image) and BD(Ideal Mother) (current image minus ideal mother image). RESULTS: Compared with white women, African American women were younger and were less likely to report being married, having any ...

South Africa is undergoing epidemiological transition, characterized by an increasing prevalence of obesity, especially among women. Among those 15 to 24 years of age, the prevalence of overweight and obesity at 40.9% is cause for concern, as it is associated with the development of non-communicable diseases of lifestyle. However, 18.1% of women in the above age category, indicated that they are unhappy with their current weight. Body image is related to an individuals perception of the attractiveness of their own body, and has an impact on actual weight and weight management practices. Body image dissatisfaction refers to the negative perceptions and feelings a person has about their body and can be affected by factors such as body shape and appearance, body weight gain attitudes, and cultural norms regarding an ideal body size. In this respect, university students are of particular interest, as they are known to experience a number of stressors during the transition from secondary- to ...
The feeling we have of our own body, sometimes called body image, is fundamental to self-awareness. However, by altering sensory input, the body image can be modified into impossible configurations. Can impossible movements of the body image be conjured solely via internally generated mechanisms, and, if so, do the structural characteristics of the body image modify to accommodate the new movements? We encouraged seven amputees with a vivid phantom arm to learn to perform a phantom wrist movement that defied normal anatomical constraints. Four reported success. Learning the impossible movement coincided in time with a profound change in the body image of the arm, including a sense of ownership and agency over a modified wrist joint. Remarkably, some previous movements and functional tasks involving the phantom arm became more difficult once the shift in body image had occurred. Crucially, these introspective reports were corroborated by robust empirical data from motor imagery tasks, about ...
Unfortunately, more teens are overweight or obese than ever before. This realization worries experts as they fear that a negative body image may compromise the mental health of teens.. This anxiety has lead to a new study that may provide hope as researchers discover overweight teens who are satisfied with their bodies are less depressed and less prone to unhealthy behaviors.. These findings could lead to proactive strategies to manage mental health among overweight adolescents.. In the study, researchers discovered overweight adolescents who are happy with the size and shape of their bodies report higher levels of self-esteem and may also be protected against the negative behavioral and psychological factors sometimes associated with being overweight.. Study findings will be published in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Adolescent Health.. Investigators surveyed a group of 103 overweight adolescents between 2004 and 2006, assessing body satisfaction, weight-control behavior, importance ...
PROBLEM OR BACKGROUND: There is little information available describing how women who are overweight or obese in pregnancy perceive their bodies, and in particular the effect of body image dissatisfaction on gestational weight gain.. QUESTION: To describe how women who are overweight or obese in pregnancy perceive their body, and the effect of body image on gestational weight gain.. METHODS: This prospective nested cohort study evaluated self estimation of body weight, preferred body shape, dieting behavior, satisfaction with body weight and shape, and gestational weight gain in pregnant women who were overweight or obese, through self-completed questionnaire in early pregnancy in South Australia from October 2010 to February 2012.. FINDINGS: Of the 442 women who completed the questionnaire, 25.8% correctly identified their BMI, with 70.1% under-estimating and 4.1% over-estimating their BMI. Women who were obese were significantly less likely to correctly identify their BMI, as were younger ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Pathogenic weight-control behavior in female athletes. AU - Rosen, L. W.. AU - McKeag, D. B.. AU - Hough, D. O.. AU - Curley, V.. PY - 1986/1/1. Y1 - 1986/1/1. N2 - Athletes have gone to extraordinary lengths to reduce their body fat stores in an effort to improve performance. To identify athletes who need help, a questionnaire was administered to 182 female collegiate athletes. Results showed that 32% practiced at least one of the weight-control behaviors defined as pathogenic, which include self-induced vomiting; binges more than twice weekly; and the use of laxatives, diet pills, and/or diuretics. A number of steps are suggested to alert coaches, trainers, and team physicians to the high-risk athlete who requires special attention or treatment to correct this disorder..

Depression and dysphoria have often been cited as emotional states that exacerbate both body size distortion and body dissatisfaction. The specific cause of this association has recently been the subject of empirical investigation. In fact, recent research suggests that women induced into a negative mood state report increased concern about their body image. The role of cognition, however, has not yet been specifically addressed by these investigations. The present study tested whether self-referent cognition acts as a mediator between subjective mood and body image evaluations. Eighty women were induced into either a positive or negative mood through brief exposure to either a self-referent or a non self-referent mood induction procedure (MIP). Self-evaluations for attitudinal and perceptual body image were examined for differential effects related to these MIPs. Results indicated that attitudinal body image self-evaluations and perceptual estimates of actual body size became more derogatory ...

Body image quality of life in eating disorders Ignacio Jáuregui Lobera1, Patricia Bolaños Ríos21Department of Nutrition and Bromatology, Pablo de Olavide University, Seville, Spain; 2Behavior Sciences Institute, Seville, SpainPurpose: The objective was to examine how body image affects quality of life in an eating-disorder (ED) clinical sample, a non-ED clinical sample, and a nonclinical sample. We hypothesized that ED patients would show the worst body image quality of life. We also hypothesized that body image quality of life would have a stronger negative association with specific ED-related variables than with other psychological and psychopathological variables, mainly among ED patients. On the basis of previous studies, the influence of gender on the results was explored, too.Patients and methods: The final sample comprised 70 ED patients (mean age 22.65 ± 7.76 years; 59 women and 11 men); 106 were patients with other psychiatric disorders (mean age 28.20 ± 6.52;

Body image seems to be the latest buzzword. What is body image and why is it important? Body image is the mental picture people have of their bodies, and how that picture makes them feel. People who generally feel good about their bodies have a positive body image.
The number of people suffering from eating disorders continue to grow in the US. According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD), over 30 million Americans of all genders and ages struggle with an eating disorder.. Women are more susceptible to eating disorders than the opposite sex. Studies prove that females are more likely to experience extreme body dissatisfaction. This is caused largely by societal pressures on women, holding them to higher standards of beauty. These standards are often too high, causing girls to have warped perceptions of themselves.. Body Dissatisfaction. Body dissatisfaction starts at an age earlier than most people would expect. Almost 46 percent of American adolescents have negative perception of their bodies. This mindset can persist until theyre 30. Eating disorders arent the only consequence of a negative body image. The risk for poor mental health, obesity, and other serious problems also increase.. This is why its ...
Objective The subjective feeling of loss of control (LOC) over eating is common among eating disordered individuals and has predicted weight gain in past research. for weight gain. LOC was assessed using an abbreviated version of the Eating Disorders Examination interview. LOC was assessed at baseline 6 weeks and 6 12 and 24 months follow-ups. Results Among those exhibiting LOC eating at baseline (and controlling for baseline depression restrained eating and Sotrastaurin (AEB071) body image dissatisfaction) those scoring higher on the PFS Sotrastaurin (AEB071) at baseline showed a smaller reduction in LOC frequency over time relative to those scoring lower. Using the same covariates Sotrastaurin (AEB071) the PFS predicted the first emergence of LOC over two years among those showing no LOC at baseline. Conclusions These results suggest that powerful hedonic attraction to palatable foods may represent a risk factor for the maintenance of LOC in those initially experiencing it and the emergence of ...

Combined scores from the questionnaire provided a strong predictor of whether a pregnant woman would have a positive attachment to their unborn child or not. Low scores, suggested that these women may need additional emotional support during pregnancy and monitoring after birth for signs of postnatal depression. Dr Catherine Preston, an expert in body image from the University of Yorks Department of Psychology, said: Our previous research has demonstrated that there is a relationship between how we perceive our bodies and our emotional state, but bodily experience is not systematically considered during pregnancy even though it is a time when dramatic bodily changes occur. Women are under constant pressure about their appearance and during pregnancy and after birth is no exception. It is important therefore that pregnancy care is not just about the physical health of the mother and the health of the unborn child, but also about womens emotional wellbeing, which can give us a lot of important ...

Grazing is a problematic eating behavior linked with poor weight loss outcomes, disordered eating psychopathology, and psychological distress in the adult population. However, no study assessed this behavior in children. Childhood is an important time frame for the development and maintenance of healthy eating habits, which can be influenced by childrens psychological state, eating habits, and parental practices. This study investigates the associations between grazing behavior in children and childrens psychological variables (anxiety, depression and withdrawn symptoms, body image dissatisfaction), children eating habits, and parental feeding practices ...

Kelly went on to admit that she struggled with body image, and found herself eating just 500 calories a day to remain thin.. Soon there were diet pills and obsessive exercise, and I had reduced my calorie intake to 500 calories a day, Kelly revealed. My heart was racing all day, my hair and skin were dry - but I was thin. And so unhappy. I was scared of gaining weight because of the insane standard this country holds its women to and because I was and remain afraid of dying in my 40s.. Kelly said that even in her 40s, she still has to work to maintain a positive body image.. As an adult, Ive gotten healthier in my approach to eating, but I, like every woman I know, still wrestle with body image, and still cringe when I hear a person attacked for his or her weight, she admitted.. Kelly concluded the segment by imploring her viewers to believe that she would never encourage that kind of behavior toward another human being..

Freshmen students entering their first year of college are faced with stress and change, and possible changes in body weight and body image. A common and highly publicized notion among college students is the high risk of gaining the dreaded --Y΄Freshman 15 which refers to the potential for excessive weight gain during freshman year. The objective of this study was to longitudinally examine changes of body weight in relation to changes in body circumference measurements, body satisfaction, and appearance investment. The three-dimensional body scans provided non-contact, accurate body measurements of participants. Subjects included 26 females and 10 males.

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecules storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters. ...
NK: I learned in the 6th grade that the girl everyone was in awe of thought she was beautiful and carried herself with a certain confidence that made us believe her. So we need to feel empowered by our bodies and our minds so that we carry ourselves in such a way …. that we tell everyone how beautiful we each are. That has nothing to do with models or celebs.

Tomosynthesis produces three-dimensional images of an object, with non-isotropic resolution. Tomosynthesis images are typically read by human observers in a stack viewing mode, displaying planes through the tomosynthesis volume. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether human performance in a signal-known exactly (SKE) detection task improves when the entire tomosynthesis volume is available to the observer, compared to displaying a single plane through the signal center. The goal of this study was to improve understanding of human performance in order to aid development of observer models for tomosynthesis. Human performance was measured using sequential 2-alternative forced choice experiments. In each trial, the observer was first asked to select the signal-present ROI based on a single 2D tomosynthesis plane. Then, scrolling was enabled and the observer was able to select the signal-present ROI, based on knowledge of the entire volume. The number of correct decisions for 2D and 3D ...
Issues and insecurities with body image in teens is not uncommon. I can honestly say, I am slightly insecure of my body image, but that just comes with the territory. Somehow, somewhere in our late elementary, and early teen ages, there is this idea of perfect bodies. The influence is everywhere, magazines, the internet, and TV. Young women are being objectified and capitalised, and adolescent girls are one of the market audiences. They may not be advertising perfect body image, but when that is all you see, it becomes the ideal body image, and adolescent girls start questioning their body image. There is a huge pressure in school that says if your not: Skinny, have long shiny hair, wear cool clothes, and date a football player, then you must not be a cool person. And somewhere along the lines, skinny became the standard that most girls thought they needed to be. With this, self esteem, and body image issues develop. Girls dont love themselves for who they are, or what they could ...
