Non-epileptic attack disorder (NEAD): a comprehensive review. (1/2237)

Non-epileptic attack disorder (NEAD) represents a well-recognized clinical problem with a reported incidence among individuals with a diagnosis of intractable epilepsy as high as 36%. A failure to identify this disorder may lead to certain risks for the patient including polypharmacy, anticonvulsant toxicity, hazardous intervention, social and economic demands and a lack of recognition or neglect of any underlying psychological distress. This review provides a description of NEAD in an historic and societal context and discusses the variety of terminology which has been applied to this psychophysiological phenomenon. Epidemiology and associated methodological limitations; and diagnostic and classification issues related to NEAD in comparison to epilepsy are considered. The problems of failure to recognize NEAD in comparison to epilepsy are considered. The problems of failure to recognize NEAD are outlined, and theoretical and empirical aetiological issues are discussed.  (+info)

Oligomycin induces a decrease in the cellular content of a pathogenic mutation in the human mitochondrial ATPase 6 gene. (2/2237)

A T --> G mutation at position 8993 in human mitochondrial DNA is associated with the syndrome neuropathy, ataxia, and retinitis pigmentosa and with a maternally inherited form of Leigh's syndrome. The mutation substitutes an arginine for a leucine at amino acid position 156 in ATPase 6, a component of the F0 portion of the mitochondrial ATP synthase complex. Fibroblasts harboring high levels of the T8993G mutation have decreased ATP synthesis activity, but do not display any growth defect under standard culture conditions. Combining the notions that cells with respiratory chain defects grow poorly in medium containing galactose as the major carbon source, and that resistance to oligomycin, a mitochondrial inhibitor, is associated with mutations in the ATPase 6 gene in the same transmembrane domain where the T8993G amino acid substitution is located, we created selective culture conditions using galactose and oligomycin that elicited a pathological phenotype in T8993G cells and that allowed for the rapid selection of wild-type over T8993G mutant cells. We then generated cytoplasmic hybrid clones containing heteroplasmic levels of the T8993G mutation, and showed that selection in galactose-oligomycin caused a significant increase in the fraction of wild-type molecules (from 16 to 28%) in these cells.  (+info)

Environment, development and health: ideological metaphors of post-traditional societies? (3/2237)

Environment and health have become nearly interchangeable concepts in post-traditional societies. We are able to observe almost an obsession with them, as if individual changes in ways of life--important for the individual and significant for the culture though they may be--possessed the power to overthrow a system of economic relations that aims at growth in numerical terms rather than at development, enabling society to sustain its specific modes of private and public interaction.  (+info)

Fish and mammals in the economy of an ancient Peruvian kingdom. (4/2237)

Fish and mammal bones from the coastal site of Cerro Azul, Peru shed light on economic specialization just before the Inca conquest of A. D. 1470. The site devoted itself to procuring anchovies and sardines in quantity for shipment to agricultural communities. These small fish were dried, stored, and eventually transported inland via caravans of pack llamas. Cerro Azul itself did not raise llamas but obtained charqui (or dried meat) as well as occasional whole adult animals from the caravans. Guinea pigs were locally raised. Some 20 species of larger fish were caught by using nets; the more prestigious varieties of these show up mainly in residential compounds occupied by elite families.  (+info)

Folkecology and commons management in the Maya Lowlands. (5/2237)

Three groups living off the same rainforest habitat manifest strikingly distinct behaviors, cognitions, and social relationships relative to the forest. Only the area's last native Maya reveal systematic awareness of ecological complexity involving animals, plants, and people and practices clearly favoring forest regeneration. Spanish-speaking immigrants prove closer to native Maya in thought, action, and social networking than do immigrant Maya. There is no overriding "local," "Indian," or "immigrant" relationship to the environment. Results indicate that exclusive concern with rational self-interest and institutional constraints do not sufficiently account for commons behavior and that cultural patterning of cognition and access to relevant information are significant predictors. Unlike traditional accounts of relations between culture, cognition, and behavior, the models offered are not synthetic interpretations of people's thoughts and behaviors but are emergent cultural patterns derived statistically from measurements of individual cognitions and behaviors.  (+info)

'Fatalism', accident causation and prevention: issues for health promotion from an exploratory study in a Yoruba town, Nigeria. (6/2237)

As countries experience the 'epidemiological transition' with a relative decline in infectious diseases, accident rates tend to increase, particularly road traffic accidents. The health promotion interventions intended to prevent or minimize the consequences of accidents have been developed in predominantly Western, industrialized countries. Although some of these solutions have been applied with success to less developed countries, there are also good reasons why such solutions are ineffective when tried in a different context. Health promotion as developed in the West has a particular ideological bias, being framed within a secular, individualist and rationalist culture. Different cosmologies exist outside this culture, often described as 'fatalist' by Western commentators and as obstructing change. Changing these cosmologies or worldviews may not fit with the ethic of paying due respect to the cultural traditions of the 'target group'. Health promotion is therefore faced with a dilemma. In addition to different worldviews, the different levels of development also mean that solutions formulated in richer countries do not suit poorer countries. This paper uses a small exploratory study in a Yoruba town in Nigeria to examine these points. Interviews with key informants were held in March 1994 in Igbo-Ora and data were extracted from hospital records. Levels of accidents from available records are noted and people's ideas about accident prevention are discussed. Recommendations as to the way forward are then proposed.  (+info)

Protective truthfulness: the Chinese way of safeguarding patients in informed treatment decisions. (7/2237)

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

The recognition, assessment and management of dementing disorders: conclusions from the Canadian Consensus Conference on Dementia. (8/2237)

OBJECTIVE: To develop evidence based consensus statements on which to build clinical practice guidelines for primary care physicians toward the recognition, assessment and management of dementing disorders and to disseminate and evaluate the impact of these statements and guidelines built on these statements. OPTIONS: Structured approach to assessment, including recommended laboratory tests, choices for neuroimaging and referral, management of complications (especially behavioural problems and depression) and use of cognitive enhancing agents. POTENTIAL OUTCOMES: Consistent and improved clinical care of persons with dementia; cost containment by more selective use of laboratory investigations; neuroimaging and referrals; and appropriate use of cognitive enhancing agents. EVIDENCE: Authors of each background paper were entrusted to perform a literature search, discover additional relevant material, including references cited in retrieved articles, consult with other experts in the field and then synthesize information. Standard rules of evidence were applied. Based on this evidence, consensus statements were developed by a group of experts, guided by a steering committee of 8 individuals, from the areas of Neurology, Geriatric Medicine, Psychiatry, Family Medicine, Preventive Health Care and Health Care Systems. VALUES: Recommendations have been developed with particular attention to the context of primary care, and are intended to support family physicians in their ongoing assessment and care of patients with dementia. BENEFITS HARM AND COSTS: Potential for improved clinical care of people with dementia. A dissemination and evaluation strategy will attempt to measure the impact of the recommendations. RECOMMENDATIONS: Forty-eight recommendations are offered that address the following aspects of dementia care: early recognition; importance of careful history and examination in making a positive diagnosis; essential laboratory tests; rules for neuroimaging and referral; disclosure of diagnosis; importance of monitoring and providing support to caregivers; cultural aspects; detection and treatment of depression; observation and management of behavioural disturbances; detection and reporting of unsafe motor vehicle driving; genetic factors and opportunities for preventing dementia; pharmacological treatment with particular emphasis on cognitive enhancing agents. VALIDATION: Four other sets of consensus statement or guidelines have been published recently. These recommendations are generally congruent with our own consensus statements. The consensus statements have been endorsed by relevant bodies in Canada.  (+info)

HIV and AIDS have spread rapidly since the first case was diagnosed in 1986. HIV and AIDS pandemic the world over is still incurable despite efforts by the local and international community partnerships. Worsening the case still, is epidemic of stigmatisation and discrimination of people living with HIV and AIDS from the general public most especially healthcare providers who render services to people living with HIV and AIDS (PLWHA). Factors reinforcing these behaviours among the healthcare providers have not been adequately investigated. Such cruel behaviours towards persons living with the virus has myriad of negative impacts on their psyche and adjustment pattern and ultimately their health-related quality of life. The study therefore seeks to investigate the pattern and the extent of discrimination and stigmatisation among healthcare providers; experiences of stigma and discrimination by persons living with HIV and AIDS from healthcare providers as well as the socio-cultural factors ...
Maternal and child under nutrition accounts for almost a third of all under 5 deaths globally and a large proportion of the long term disabilities and consequences. Much of the global burden of undernutrition exists in relatively few countries in Asia and Africa and is associated with poverty, high burden of disease and socio-cultural factors affecting dietary intake.
Traditional architectural and urban artefacts are showed over the centuries as a powerful imprint of human actions and practices and are being developed on the basis of concrete socio-cultural factors and environmental rationalities. Spatial and morphological patterns of traditional environments have exceedingly evolved to fulfill and accomplish the social and cultural needs of the populace in their dialectical interplay with the surrounding environment. This relationship conceptualises the man-made environment, as the repository of meaning, in users‟ reciprocal relation with the surrounding environment. In the context of history, the human tends to dwell when experiencing the built environment as meaningful. Traditional contexts are highlighted as physical and spatial interpretations of human activities, skills, thoughts and resources creating identifiable and meaningful realms related to space/place, time and society. The study uncovers the process of the formation of the house and mahalla ...

Background: The burden of illness associated with Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) has determined this as a key focus for research at a basic science, individual and population level. Although considerable research has been conducted on specific aspects of the experience of CHD, such as anxiety or depression, there is a lack of research investigating the global aspects of the illness experience from the individuals perspective. Furthermore, there is a paucity of research examining the cross-cultural experiences of patients from Non-English Speaking Backgrounds (NESB). Given the multicultural nature of Australian society, and that health and illness are culturally constructed experiences (Manderson 1990), it is important to include the perspectives of people from minority cultures in health related research in order to provide culturally sensitive and appropriate health care and information during an illness. Further, the potential to prevent and modulate the course of CHD, by strategies such as ...

The development of todays global economy has been influenced by two processes - internationalization and globalization. The phenomena they induce mean an increase of business connections between individual markets and regions, which in consequence often brings the need to face up to the existing cultural differences. Therefore, it has become necessary to include cultural aspects by entities involved in international business and to be capable of coping with the challenges resulting from cultural differences. This applies not only to the biggest players - transnational corporations - but also to small and medium companies. Due to the ambiguities of interpreting culture as such, as well as the multitude of approaches to the elements of cultural surroundings, it is not an easy task. This has been confirmed by the experiences of many companies operating in the international arena. One should also agree with the opinion expressed by Geert Hofstede, that the international environment and cultural ...

Understanding and being responsible for ones own emotional, spiritual and human growth are key for creating accountable, responsible leaders, who will someday be in charge of a parish or a diocese and its staff and community, said Jesuit Father Stefan Dartmann, rector of the Pontificium Collegium Germanicum et Hungaricum in Rome - a German-speaking seminary serving dioceses in northern and central Europe.. Run by the Jesuits, the college puts unique emphasis on strengthening the seminarians sense of discernment and co-responsibility in his formation, and students are allowed to be part of the college leadership team.. The aim is to create men who can ask, What has to be done, not just for themselves, but for the whole community, he told CNS. This is critical because weve had bishops who we know never asked about protection training and protocols because they felt very uncomfortable, so they waited, he said.. There is no reason to avoid going into the problems - its the other way ...

Click here to read part 1 of the interview. SP - The accuracy and reliability of mass spectrometry is still debatable due to the its dependence on technical prowess of the mass spectrometrist. Is it overcome in SRM or do we need a highly skilled mass spectrometrist for that as well? Or can we enjoy (reach closer to) the level of automation in experimental protocol vis-a-vis DNA or RNA Seq?. Mike - I think the cultural aspects of proteomics needs to change. Our efforts have been focused on identification of peptides, modifications, etc. - basically generation of lists. In most other applications of mass spectrometry, those fields have focused on the generation and validation of assays, not lists. It is hard to transfer an assay from one lab to another if the figures of merit are things like peptide IDs. I believe that things will get better once we start to focus more on the classical figures of merit like like LOD, LOQ, CV, chromatographic reproducibility, etc. There are groups working towards ...

Darwin took an equally radical step toward uniting the mental and physical worlds, by showing how the mental world - whatever it might be composed of - arguable owed its complex organization to the same process of natural selection that explained the physical organization of living things. 20. To break this seamless matrix of causation - to attempt to dismember the individual into biological versus nonbiological aspects - is to embrace and perpetuate an ancient dualism endemic to the Western cultural tradition: material/spiritual, body/mind, physical/mental, natural/human, animal/human, biological/social, biological/cultural. 21. To many scholarly communities, conceptual unification became an enemy, and the relevance of other fields a menace to their freedom to interpret human reality in any way those chose. 21.

Kristiansen established the Yamnaya - Corded Ware - pre‐Germanic ancestry. Simplifying, the conclusion is that the Yamnaya men, having just reached the west of Europe, married local women and, several generations later, the fruit of this hybridization would be the emergence of the Corded Ware and of a new dialect ‐ Pre‐Proto‐Germanic (K. Kristiansen et alii 2017). If women are seen as the origin of the pottery characterizing this cultural tradition (K. Kristiansen et alii 2017), the ideological element transformed at the basis of the Corded Ware society is reflected in the relevance and unity of burial practices (K. Kristiansen 2017), especially as regards the men graves (Q. Bourgeois, E. Kroon 2017), although this does not exclude the presence of local aspects (M. Furholt 2014). The small gap between the onset of the two cultural phenomena (the Yamnaya and the Corded Ware) in the areas analyzed (not of origin) might point to a very fast hybridization phenomenon, with rather different ...

In general, combative systems both armed and unarmed closely reflect the sociocultural milieu that is/was their provenance. As great an impact (in some cases greater) is made by contemporary conditions within which the system currently lies. Using the basic outlines of aggressive combative behavior and predatory combative behavior, we should be able to gauge on which side of the behavioral fence a particular system will tend to fall.. Further on, I will cover the biological and socio-cultural inhibitory mechanisms involved in combative behavior, as well as how systems of fighting arts, i.e., combative systems evolve along the lines of affective and predatory combat/combative behavior in their cultural milieu. We will see that the socio-cultural background and functional aims of a system will at least partially select for traits associated with primarily affective combative behavior or predatory. In addition, however, we will see that quite often, man s adaptability has allowed him to select ...

The presence of mental distress during pregnancy and after childbirth imposes detrimental developmental and health consequences for families in all nations. In Zambia, the Ministry of Health (MoH) has proposed a more comprehensive approach towards mental health care, recognizing the importance of the mental health of women during the perinatal period. The study explores factors contributing to mental distress during the perinatal period of motherhood in Zambia. A qualitative study was conducted in Lusaka, Zambia with nineteen focus groups comprising 149 women and men from primary health facilities and schools respectively. There are high levels of mental distress in four domains: worry about HIV status and testing; uncertainty about survival from childbirth; lack of social support; and vulnerability/oppression. Identifying mental distress and prompt referral for interventions is critical to improving the mental health of the mother and prevent the effects of mental distress on the baby. Strategies

They are involved in the delivery of health services to the community and constitute the first point of contact on health-related issues in many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The performance of CHWs is often hampered by various factors. The purpose of the study was to investigate the socio-cultural factors influencing the performance of CHWs in Soy Sub-County. Based on the study, this paper explores the influence of CHWs level of education and knowledge on their performance in Soy Sub-County. A correlation research design was used in the study with systematic sampling method being used to identify the respondents. In total, 98 respondents were given questionnaires to fill. Qualitative data was also collected from 7 heads of community health management team (CHMT) using key informant interviews. The collected data was then presented using frequency distribution ...
The best way of checking the spread of HIV/AIDS worldwide is an approach that addresses the relationships between the medical aspects of the disease, its consequences for development and the socio-cultural factors that contribute to its transmission, said du Guerny. FAO and UNAIDS will undertake a series of joint activities, including integrated prevention programmes that will help spread information, especially to young men and women, about HIV vulnerability, risk reduction and sustainable rural development.. AIDS cripples agriculture and rural communities. FAO has focused on the crippling effects AIDS is having on agriculture and rural communities, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. There, nearly 23 million people, about 63 percent of the worlds total, are infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Labour-intensive farming systems with low levels of mechanization are particularly vulnerable to HIV/AIDS, because of its high death rate among working-age people. In addition, those afflicted ...
With a headline that would be more appropriate at The Onion, one cant help feeling that the British Broadcasting Corporation was having a slow news day.. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this article is that, amusing headline aside, one would expect there to actually be some form of new information unearthed by the study, even if the usefulness of this information isnt immediately apparent to the layman.. However, when presenting the finding that the relaxation of sexual inhibitions post-alcohol intake was a more marked changed amongst the female subjects than the male, the conclusion reached was that this could be explained by …differences in blood alcohol concentration between males and females with the same alcohol intake, differences in tolerance due to differences in previous levels of alcohol consumption or by socio-cultural factors. So, really narrowing it down there.. And just in case you were planning to use this article as evidence in your favour, perhaps during a conflict ...

In 1995 the Nordic Africa Institute initiated a research project on cultural aspects of development and Nordic-African relations. One of the aims was to contribute to providing other images of Africa than the negative images of misery, war and catastrophes often conveyed by the mass media. Another was to encourage cultural aspects of change in Africa, and the dynamics of cultural production itself. It is indisputable that negative images of Africa increasingly dominate everyday reporting and therefore public opinion too. The generalised pessimistic pictures are in stark contrast to what those of us have experienced who have had the opportunity to visit Africa and work there. It was important not only to encourage alternatives to stereotypes and generalisations, which portrayed Africans as helpless victims, but also to try to understand how and why, and to what extent these images had developed. This was the theme of the first conference organised within the new project on culture, coordinated by ...

This enquiry week in collaboration with Axor / Hansgrohe focused on the relevance and value of water in connection with cultural, social, health and wellness-related and everyday rituals. Based on the function of water, the elements role for structuring everyday life, planning and awareness at the interface of water, man and nature were analysed. The perception of water influenced by cultural backgrounds and disciplines is reflected in various formats of rituals. The power over and the use of water includes economic and cultural aspects on a global level, raising the questions: What are todays rituals for water in everyday life? What is the relationship between space - ritual - water? Are new typologies needed, such as new bath houses or shared bathrooms? Does water in rituals change our perception of space on all scales, from the private to the public? And can water act through rituals as a socio-cultural platform and innovation for urban lifestyles?. ...
ABSTRACT. This broad ranging discussion examines the clinical encounter and deconstructs psychological and cultural context and implications, finally honoring the comprehensive awareness that the clinician requires for best practice in encountering mortality. Clinicians engage client disease and dying presentions, and ultimate mortality. Communicating mortality openly or subliminally is not always conscious. Mortality awareness can produce stress and untoward behaviors. Psychological mortality avoidance, citing Kierkegaards existential paradox, and the death (in both senses) of Joseph Campbells cultural hero illumine socio-cultural elements including the elusive good death, sequestration of death from society, and the concept of managing death in volume. Cultural diversity awareness and the concept of transcendence clarify outlier and hybrid cultural client presentations demanding maximal clinician flexibility. Mortality Salience Theory predicts contracted world view when confronted with ...

Being in the business of advising countries or their leaders in different places of the world, with often very different belief systems and cultural backgrounds, requires to be as neutral as possible; otherwise, such advising work would no longer provide an impartial and useful view of the world and its many problems.. Nevertheless, certain events of late make me break with tradition of neutrality and raise my voice in protest against dire collective human failure to recognize that the 18th and 19th century and its many misconceptions are over and that we need to do things very differently in the 21st century, if our global society entertains any hope of moving even beyond this ...
Under a new law known as SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016 exemptions based on personal beliefs, including religious beliefs, will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California. Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccinations.

HISP-S 411 SPAIN: The Cultural Context 3credits) CULTURE / ELECTIVE Prerequisite: One course from S324, S328, S331, S333, S334. What images or stereotypes of Spain and its cultures do we have and how do they deviate from reality? What defines culture and cultural production? How does the process of learning about a foreign culture take place? How can we foster the development of cultural learning in Bloomington/our own community? This course examines our notions of Spain and seeks to build a more complex understanding of contemporary Spanish culture. In addition, we will explore and analyze the process of cultural awareness. To accomplish these two goals, traditional classroom learning will be paired with service learning: as S411 students learn about Spanish culture they will, in turn, teach elements of it to Bloomington-area preschoolers. The teaching component will provide both active and reflective ways to grasp cultural learning. This course is based on the philosophy that in order to ...
Cooperative in Nepal has a long cultural tradition of informal community based co-operatives including savings and credit associations popularly known as dhukuti and grain savings and labor savings systems know as parma and dharma vakari. Similarly, Guthi provided a forum to work together for smoothly running different socio cultural practices. Many of these traditional systems of cooperation are still functioning in the rural area of Nepal. The First Co-operative Act was enacted by the government in 1960, which was followed by the agricultural co-operative act. Later on the savings and credit Cooperative Societies movement had spread throughout the country, and the co-operative Act 1992 has firmly accepted the cooperative principles and provided a legal base both for establishment of cooperative society. At present the department of cooperative is working under the ministry of agriculture and cooperative to enhance the local leadership throughout the promotion, regulation and development of ...
Managing a project schedule seems like a straight-forward and explicit task. But when the concept of time is introduced, developing and managing a project schedule becomes greatly complicated, primarily because time is shaped by cultural influences. This paper examines how culture can affects a multicultural project teams orientation to time, and in turn, shape the teams project performance. In doing so, it defines two types of orientation to time--monochronism and polychronism, looking at each orientations cultural significance. It compares the advantages and disadvantages of each orientation, noting the key differences between mono-chronic people and poly-chronic people. It also discusses how project managers can develop approaches to work with these orientations to time, noting the values that shape each orientation. It then details eight lessons that the authors learned from working in cultures--and with individuals--that embraced different orientations to managing time and to building
People talk a lot about finding the meaning and story in data. I believe the DataFRAMES (like the ones used in Data Science programming languages R and Python) and the mental FRAMES within which we hold beliefs are intimately connected. DataFRAMES hold in-time instances of certain categorizable events. But they are limited; they can never have ALL the information. (Even Google cant have next weeks data.). Beliefs are the same way. We cant ever have ALL the information. So we form beliefs to guide us until we get more information. Then we update those beliefs. (For the Subjective Bayesians reading this, isnt that basic the idea of a priori and a posterior? That probability quantifies a personal belief?). (Not coincidentally, this is also the basic structure of most agency creative briefs. What belief does the customer currently have? What belief do we want them to have? What information do we want to give them to change / update their current belief?). The famous Kaggle Titanic ...

NOTE: Entries are number of clusters of cultural variants expected and rate of possible cultural change. Multiple rates reflect influence of individual innovators (e.g., change will be slow unless a prestigious individual introduces the variant). (a) A direct function of the number of family members present in the population. (b) A direct function of the social clustering within the population. Homogeneity of a culture is expected only under particular combinations of social norms and social models; it is not the rule. The more rigid the social constraints, the more homogeneous the cultural system of a population. We might expect social pressure to be greater in small and highly structured societies than in very large and loosely organized ones. Egalitarian societies will generally be less rigid, as in chimpanzees and some human hunter-gatherers, and probably less homogeneous. At the same time, in a huge modern Western society many cultural variants can survive side by side in most domains. ...
Home to close to 60 per cent of the worlds population, Asia is the largest and by far the most populous continent. It is also extremely diverse, physically and culturally. Asian countries and regions have their own distinctive histories, cultural traditions, religious beliefs and political systems, and they have often pursued different routes to development.

This article focuses on the inter-subjective aspects involved in the care of psychosocial crises of adolescents, their representations and developments. A qualitative research was developed from a psycho-sociological perspective by constructing life story narratives of adolescents treated at a Psychosocial Care Center for Children and Adolescents (CAPSi). It was based on the theoretical contributions of René Kaës on group and cultural aspects of the crisis, as well as its relation to adolescence. Life narratives, constructed through in-depth interviews with adolescents, close relatives, and CAPSi caretakers depict crisis as a surprise, as violence and estrangement, an episode that must be forgotten, denied, silenced, and medicalized ...
The study of diseases in biblical times tended to focus on behaviour, performance and social relations of the ill. It could not be undertaken without a proper understanding of the sociocultural context and of key cultural factors such as kinship, social networks, power, and authority, and thus involved sociocultural research rather than medical research. It would not focus on the individual as the primary source of concern or as an economical issue, but would strive to encompass the relation between the individual s illness and the community as a whole. This concept heightened the awareness of any irregularity or illness in an individual within a community since the individual was very much dependent on the values and opinions of other members of his community, and their own evaluation of this individual. This inevitably affected others such as family, neighbourhood and village. These interested parties would therefore be involved in the healing process. For example, biblical leprosy (which is ...
It is only in retrospect that I have begun to think of my father, Adrien Baillargeon as a superhero and a socio-cultural icon. In his time, the words had not yet come of age. Nevertheless, the words superhero and socio-cultural icon fit him to a tee long before he became a professional wrestler. At first, the image of a superhero was more in the French Canadian tradition of the legendary Paul Bunyan (Stevens 2001). At 65
2) Im very surprised by the reluctance of lit profs in the article in embracing the teaching of cultural aspects of the language. It seems to me that there is a huge (possibly covert) assumption that the study of lit is at least partly the study of culture when we look at how its done in an English dept. The dept there at least has the luxury that the majority of the students are familiar with the culture of the language of instruction. ...
Ancient population expansions and dispersals often leave enduring signatures in the cultural traditions of their descendants, as well as in their genes and languages. The international folktale record has long been regarded as a rich context in which to explore these legacies. To date, investigations in this area have been complicated by a lack of historical data and the impact of more recent waves of diffusion. In this study, we introduce new methods for tackling these problems by applying comparative phylogenetic methods and autologistic modelling to analyse the relationships between folktales, population histories and geographical distances in Indo-European-speaking societies. We find strong correlations between the distributions of a number of folktales and phylogenetic, but not spatial, associations among populations that are consistent with vertical processes of cultural inheritance. Moreover, we show that these oral traditions probably originated long before the emergence of the literary ...

JAC…the only thing that I will disagree with you on… is pulling a gun on an unarmed trespasser…..it is done all the time here and I would even do it. Land in Texas is sacred, like football. Texans have fought for land over the years dating back to the 1700s. I have no fault with people buying land if they can. Does the fault lie with the people with the money or the land bureau that sells public land? If I had the millions to buy land in the west, I would do it….if it was for sale. If I bought land in the west, I would probably fence it off as it would be private. That said, I would try to be a good neighbor as much as I could. But private property is just that…private. I would probably leave hiking trails open, but would most likely close hunting. If it was cattle country, I would probably fence off pastures and raise cattle and I would, most likely, post no trespassing signs off the hiking trails. I do not pretend to understand the cultural aspects of public land in your area but I ...
Lets say we have three different phases in the anarchist movement. The first phase was in the 80s, and it was characterised by Eastern philosophies, Western philosophies, psychedelic views, all combined and non-puritan. It was not differentiated. But this all changed in the mid-90s when the movement Italianised, so to speak. It began to copy the Italian model, to differentiate itself and distance itself from its cultural aspects, saying the only way to be effective was to be militant. It adopted a more objective and materialistic view. The major influences during the 90s were the Italian autonomia, to a lesser extent things like Green Anarchy from the American movement, and very much so the Situationist International and the new formulation of metropolis, the capitalistic centres as metropolis, the places where the spectacle is more actively formulated. The German underground and punk rock also had an influence, and these were not so tolerant of other approaches. In the 80s it was easier to ...

Benchmarks: Understands that cultural beliefs strongly influence the values and behavior of the people who grow up in the culture often without their being fully aware of it, and that people have different responses to these influences; Understands that punishment for unacceptable social behavior depends partly on beliefs about the purposes of punishment and about its effectiveness; Understands that socal distinctions are a part of every culture, but they take many different forms; Understands that people often take differences to be signs of social class; Understands that the difficulty of moving from one social class to another varies greatly with time, place, and economic circumstances; Understands that heredity, culture, and personal experience interact in shaping human behavior, and that the relative importance of these influences is not clear in most ...

Every so often, I get hit in the face with two facts. First, Americans (even poor Americans) are unbelievably rich. Second, Americans (as a group) utterly lack a cultural tradition that teaches us how to eat a healthy, frugal diet.. The first time this really struck me was about twenty years ago. I was listening to a radio story about people whod risen from humble beginnings to become successful entrepreneurs. One guy, taking about a time his family had gone through a rough patch where money was tight, said, I can tell you, there were a lot of days we at bologna for lunch, and then bologna again for dinner.. My first thought was, Only in America do the truly poor eat meat twice a day. My second was, Why doesnt anyone teach people how to create a healthy, frugal diet? My third was, Oh, yeah--they do. Its called the four food groups--of course they thought they had to serve meat at every meal.. Since then, weve moved beyond the four food groups. Today we teach the food pyramid and ...
Epilepsy article. At least four people e-mailed me to tell me about this article in the New York Times, which describes a newly-rediscovered, high-fat diet that is often more effective than drugs to in controlling epilepsy. I beg to differ with the authors opinion, and mainstream conventional wisdom, that the saturated fat content in this diet is dangerous. Doctors also dont know how it works; Id like to point them toward some theories having a lot less to do with genetics and a lot more to do with gut flora (check out Natasha Campbell-McBrides lecture where she talks about epilepsy: http://www.lifeisapalindrome.com/content/part-two-gaps-and-autoimmunity-... , and scroll down about halfway).. ----. Just finished Wild Fermentation, by Sandor Sandorkraut Elix Katz. Short, to-the-point, humorous, and filled with recipes. Whats not to like?.

301.00). These data, taken into account together with the low educational level of the women that were included in this sample, support that an adherence of 57% on an 18-month interval is a significant achievement.. Moreover, some cultural issues that might play a role here should be mentioned. First, there might be a cultural difference in understanding the effect of preventive and early detection interventions (22, 27, 28), especially in a country such as Brazil where there is no structured breast cancer screening program; thus, women are historically not used to undergoing regular mammography or other early detection measures. Second, certain cultures are more fatalistic about cancer and perceive fewer benefits from screening (29), which is, in the authors perception, an important issue in Brazil, especially in lower socioeconomic classes. Finally, in many of these women, concerns about their own healthcare are frequently neglected because of more urgent needs, such as childcare and ...
Beliefs are often conditional, qualified, and uncertain. And some of our beliefs are certainly beliefs about probabilities. But the fact that our beliefs are often conditional, qualified, and uncertain doesnt mean that the content of those beliefs is conditional, qualified, and uncertain. It is my attitude of belief that is qualified, not the content.. So when I believe (with less than 100% certainty) that what Caesar said is true, what I believe (again with less than 100% certainty) is that what Caesar said is true. Its not that I accept (with 100% certainty) some prediction with explicit error margin attached or some other probabilistic statement.. This doesnt do anything to settle debates over the substance or usefulness of the concept of truth. As Dan mentions, there is a large literature on the debate between deflationists about truth and their opponents. And as for the ineliminability of the concept, one quick response to Roderick would be I agree with what Caesar said. You have ...
What we need to do is ask the question, What is it that causes the rate of change in human culture to increase? I believe the major reason is the increase in the flow of information between people. At its most basic level, change in human culture is caused by people exchanging information. Now, in 2500 B.C., how easy was it to move information from one location to another? If you lived in the same village, you could talk to someone, but, aside from that, there was no easy way to move information. Hence, there was very little change. The 20th century has been characterized by ever-increasing rates of change, because the 20th century has enjoyed ever-increasing facilities to preserve information and move it from one place to another. If you say to me, I think that life changed faster in 1970 than 1920, I would say thats because information moved faster in 1970 than it did in 1920. As long as we can move information from one place to another, were going to have change. The faster we can move ...
