Utilizing traditional storytelling to promote wellness in American Indian communities. (1/30)

Utilizing storytelling to transmit educational messages is a traditional pedagogical method practiced by many American Indian tribes. American Indian stories are effective because they present essential ideas and values in a simple, entertaining form. Different story characters show positive and negative behaviors. The stories illustrate consequences of behaviors and invite listeners to come to their own conclusions after personal reflection. Because stories have been passed down through tribal communities for generations, listeners also have the opportunity to reconnect and identify with past tribal realities. This article reports on a research intervention that is unique in promoting health and wellness through the use of storytelling. The project utilized stories to help motivate tribal members to once more adopt healthy, traditional life-styles and practices. The authors present and discuss the stories selected, techniques used in their telling, the preparation and setting for the storytelling, and the involvement and interaction of the group.  (+info)

PRIMITIVE AFRICAN MEDICAL LORE AND WITCHCRAFT. (2/30)

This article presents a comprehensive study of the methods, practices, equipment, and paraphernalia of African witch doctors in carrying out primitive medical practices. The chief tribes studied are the Azandes of the Sudan, the Manos of Liberia, the Congo tribes, the Bundas of Angola, and the Zulus and other Bantu tribes of South Africa. Primitive beliefs and customs are discussed only insofar as they have a direct bearing on medical practices. The medical practices considered deal mainly with the application of general remedies for ailments and diseases, but certain specialized fields such as obstetrics, surgery, treatment for fractures, and dentistry are also included. Primitive medicaments are presented with reference to their application for various illnesses. An alphabetical list of these medicaments is given at the end of the article.  (+info)

Could nursery rhymes cause violent behaviour? A comparison with television viewing. (3/30)

AIMS: To assess the rates of violence in nursery rhymes compared to pre-watershed television viewing. METHODS: Data regarding television viewing habits, and the amount of violence on British television, were obtained from Ofcom. A compilation of nursery rhymes was examined for episodes of violence by three of the researchers. Each nursery rhyme was analysed by number and type of episode. They were then recited to the fourth researcher whose reactions were scrutinised. RESULTS: There were 1045 violent scenes on pre-watershed television over two weeks, of which 61% showed the act and the result; 51% of programmes contained violence. The 25 nursery rhymes had 20 episodes of violence, with 41% of rhymes being violent in some way; 30% mentioned the act and the result, with 50% only the act. Episodes of law breaking and animal abuse were also identified. Television has 4.8 violent scenes per hour and nursery rhymes have 52.2 violent scenes per hour. Analysis of the reactions of the fourth researcher were inconclusive. CONCLUSIONS: Although we do not advocate exposure for anyone to violent scenes or stimuli, childhood violence is not a new phenomenon. Whether visual violence and imagined violence have the same effect is likely to depend on the age of the child and the effectiveness of the storyteller. Re-interpretation of the ancient problem of childhood and youth violence through modern eyes is difficult, and laying the blame solely on television viewing is simplistic and may divert attention from vastly more complex societal problems.  (+info)

Description of an injury in a human caused by a false tocandira (Dinoponera gigantea, Perty, 1833) with a revision on folkloric, pharmacological and clinical aspects of the giant ants of the genera Paraponera and Dinoponera (sub-family Ponerinae). (4/30)

The authors observed an injury caused by the sting of a false tocandira ant in the hand of an amateur fisherman and they describe the clinical findings and the evolution of the envenoming, which presented an acute and violent pain, cold sweating, nausea, a vomiting episode, malaise, tachycardia and left axillary's lymphadenopathy. About three hours after the accident, still feeling intense pain in the place of the sting, he presented an episode of great amount of blood in the feces with no history of digestive, hematological or vascular problems. The intense pain decreased after eight hours, but the place stayed moderately painful for about 24 hours. In that moment, he presented small grade of local edema and erythema. The authors still present the folkloric, pharmacological and clinical aspects related to the tocandiras stings, a very interesting family of ants, which presents the largest and more venomous ants of the world.  (+info)

Traditional use of the Andean flicker (Colaptes rupicola) as a galactagogue in the Peruvian Andes. (5/30)

This paper explores the use of the dried meat and feathers of the Andean Flicker (Colaptes rupicola) to increase the milk supply of nursing women and domestic animals in the Andes. The treatment is of preColumbian origin, but continues to be used in some areas, including the village in the southern Peruvian highlands where I do ethnographic research. I explore the factors giving rise to and sustaining the practice, relate it to other galactagogues used in the Andes and to the use of birds in ethnomedical and ethnoveterinary treatments in general, and situate it within the general tendency in the Andes and elsewhere to replicate human relations in the treatment of valuable livestock. The bird's use as a galactagogue appears to be motivated by both metaphorical associations and its perceived efficacy, and conceptually blends human and animal healthcare domains.  (+info)

Albinism in Africa as a public health issue. (6/30)

BACKGROUND: Oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) is a genetically inherited autosomal recessive condition and OCA2, tyrosine-positive albinism, is the most prevalent type found throughout Africa. Due to the lack of melanin, people with albinism are more susceptible to the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation exposure. This population must deal with issues such as photophobia, decreased visual acuity, extreme sun sensitivity and skin cancer. People with albinism also face social discrimination as a result of their difference in appearance. The World Health Organization is currently investigating the issues concerning this vulnerable population. METHODS: Systematic electronic search of articles in PubMed concerning albinism in Africa. Furthermore, a World Health Organization (WHO) pilot survey of albinism was drafted in English, French and Portuguese, and distributed to African countries through WHO African Regional Offices (AFRO) in an attempt to gather further information on albinism. RESULTS: Epidemiologic data on albinism, such as prevalence, were available for South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Nigeria. Prevalences as high as 1 in 1,000 were reported for selected populations in Zimbabwe and other specific ethnic groups in Southern Africa. An overall estimate of albinism prevalences ranges from 1/5,000-1/15,000. In addition, both the literature review and the survey underscored the medical and social issues facing people with albinism. CONCLUSION: The estimated prevalence of albinism suggests the existence of tens of thousands of people living with albinism in Africa. This finding reiterates the need for increased awareness of and public health interventions for albinism in order to better address the medical, psychological and social needs of this vulnerable population.  (+info)

The supernatural characters and powers of sacred trees in the Holy Land. (7/30)

This article surveys the beliefs concerning the supernatural characteristics and powers of sacred trees in Israel; it is based on a field study as well as a survey of the literature and includes 118 interviews with Muslims and Druze. Both the Muslims and Druze in this study attribute supernatural dimensions to sacred trees which are directly related to ancient, deep-rooted pagan traditions. The Muslims attribute similar divine powers to sacred trees as they do to the graves of their saints; the graves and the trees are both considered to be the abode of the soul of a saint which is the source of their miraculous powers. Any violation of a sacred tree would be strictly punished while leaving the opportunity for atonement and forgiveness. The Druze, who believe in the transmigration of souls, have similar traditions concerning sacred trees but with a different religious background. In polytheistic religions the sacred grove/forest is a centre of the community's official worship; any violation of the trees is regarded as a threat to the well being of the community. Punishments may thus be collective. In the monotheistic world (including Christianity, Islam and Druze) the pagan worship of trees was converted into the worship/adoration of saints/prophets; it is not a part of the official religion but rather a personal act and the punishments are exerted only on the violating individual.  (+info)

Plants traditionally used to make brooms in several European countries. (8/30)

BACKGROUND: The research was carried out within the course of two years (2005-2006) in four countries from southern, southeast and eastern parts of Europe: Bulgaria, Italy, Macedonia and Romania. The data are collected mainly from Bulgaria and Italy and are compared with those from Macedonia and Romania. METHODS: The information was gathered largely from literature as well as field collected data and interviewed informants. A brief questionnaire, referring to the vernacular name, plant description, providing specimens from the plants and brooms, details on their use has been prepared and applied. RESULTS: The total number of species as brooms in the study areas is about 108. The list includes two fungi taxa which caused the so-called "Witches' brooms". A high species diversity of 106 taxa of vascular plants, belonging to 37 families and 74 genera, is established in the research area. The investigation includes data about scientific name, family, vernacular name, life form, status (wild or cultivated), used parts and place of use. The relations between the plant characteristics and broom specific shape and working qualities, details of the traditionally broom planting and making, the broom as a part of folklore, traditions and religious rituals are discussed. CONCLUSION: Collected data show how ecological, geographical features and different cultures are related with the variety of plants traditionally used as brooms as well as details for their uses. The data about the variety of plants traditionally used to make brooms and the ways in which they are used according to the specific characteristics of the areas are important for ethnobotanical knowledge.  (+info)

Chinese folklore began to gain popularity around the 1910s, as an area of study with the movement to formally adopt Vernacular Chinese as the language of education and literature. Because Vernacular Chinese was the dialect in which most folklore was created, this movement brought to scholars attention to the influences that Vernacular Chinese folklore had upon classical literature. Hu Shih of the Peking University, who had published several articles in support of the adoption of Vernacular Chinese, concluded that when Chinese writers drew their inspiration from folk traditions such as traditional tales and songs, Chinese literature experienced a renaissance. When writers neglected these sources, they lost touch with the people of the nation. A new emphasis on the study of folklore, Hu concluded, could therefore usher in a new renaissance of Chinese literature.[3] The Folksong Studies Movement became a key contributor to establishing Chinese folklore as a modern academic discipline. This ...
Sitting time and sedentary behaviors have been associated with adverse health outcomes including obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) within non- Hispanic White populations. Similar associations have not been described within Hispanic populations despite their high CVD risk profile. This study aimed to assess the association between sitting time and obesity, self-reported diagnosed diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol among a large cohort (N=11,268) of Mexican origin adults and to assess whether obesity mediated these associations. Using a cross-sectional design, data collected between 2004 and 2010 were analyzed in late 2010. Regression analyses evaluated associations between self-reported daily sitting hours and disease outcomes, controlling for demographics, employment status, family disease history, and light, moderate and strenuous physical activity. Participants were mostly female (81.1%) Mexican origin adults. Sitting time was associated with increased odds of being obese,

There have been several attempts, across the world, to revise nursery rhymes (along with fairy tales and popular songs). Even in the late 18th century we can sometimes see how rhymes like Little Robin Redbreast were cleaned up for a young audience.[24] In the late 19th century the major concern seems to have been violence and crime, which led leading childrens publishers in the United States like Jacob Abbot and Samuel Goodrich to improve Mother Goose rhymes.[25] In the early and mid-20th centuries this was a form of bowdlerisation, concerned with some of the more violent elements of nursery rhymes and led to the formation of organisations like the British Society for Nursery Rhyme Reform.[26] Psychoanalysts such as Bruno Bettelheim strongly criticized this revisionism, on the grounds that it weakened their usefulness to both children and adults as ways of symbolically resolving issues and it has been argued that revised versions may not perform the functions of catharsis for children, or ...
It is well-documented that the term folklore was coined in 1846 by the Englishman William Thoms. He fabricated it for use in an article published in the August 22, 1846 issue of The Athenaeum.[21] Thoms consciously replaced the contemporary terminology of popular antiquities or popular literature with this new word. Folklore was to emphasize the study of a specific subset of the population: the rural, mostly illiterate peasantry.[22] In his published call for help in documenting antiquities, Thoms was echoing scholars from across the European continent to collect artifacts of older, mostly oral cultural traditions still flourishing among the rural populace. In Germany the Brothers Grimm had first published their Kinder- und Hausmärchen in 1812. They continued throughout their lives to collect German folk tales to include in their collection. In Scandinavia, intellectuals were also searching for their authentic Teutonic roots and had labeled their studies Folkeminde (Danish) or ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Ego Atrophy in Addiction Illustrated through American Cultural Music Folklore. AU - Fine, James. AU - Juni, Samuel. PY - 2000. Y1 - 2000. N2 - Popular music is an artifact of folklore that can provide a keen insight into societal complexity. As a window with minimal censorship, it allows access to a subgroup whose motifs are often obfuscated from within and without by defensive and self righteous distortions. Music is a primary source depicting the strivings and failings of a culture or its tributaries. An overview is offered of the American social historical context of substance abuse, as it informs the theory of ego atrophy to conceptualize addiction. In this study, it is appealed to as an aid in the elaboration of addictive behavior. Adjunctively, major themes in movie pictures are referenced as parallel, albeit less refined, indices of stereotype in the culture. Together with societal laws and mores, these markers point to a specific behavioral and value system that typifies ...
Behind ever art is a man, behind the man is the race and behind the race is the social and natural environment and these influences are sure to be reflected on folklore. There is an enormous amount of influence of folklore in our old and modern Bengali literature. In Bangladesh folklore activities were much accelerated when The Bangla Academy in Dhaka in 1955 to promote research work on Bengali language and literature and collected, preserved, and published folklore materials. Mohammad Sayeedur started his professional life in Bangla academy Folklore division at 1962 by the guideline of Jainul abedin, Jashim uddin and others, who builds up a lot of collection of tangible and intangible folk heritage by himself, those which are the valuable national properties of our country. But now a day, his huge collections are being destroyed for lack of authority, space and proper preservation. In this Mohammod Sayeedur Folk Heritage Museum and Research centre, where the scientists of different countries ...
Im a lover of folklore. As a child I loved reading or hearing about so-called real life monsters. Back then I truly believed that monsters were hiding behind every corner and in every bush. Now that Im grown, I take a more agnostic approach to such tales. I think its important to touch on the nature of folklore and how one should approach it. It would be a disservice unto folklore to approach it as having a 100% basis in reality. Instead, the proper way to approach folklore is to perceive it as if occurring in an alternative reality or parallel universe. Sure, these tales are magical and intruiging, but they also have a dark side, or should I say, people do. People who cant tell the difference between fantasy and reality have been inspired by folklore to harass, abuse, and even kill people. Just think of all the people who have been executed for being witches and werewolves. Did such women actually fly through the air to have sex with the devil and eat babies? Did men actually don a magic ...

By Steve Keating. AUGUSTA, Georgia (Reuters) - Jordan Spieth carded five birdies over his final six holes to power his way into a two-shot lead at the U.S. Masters on Thursday but that spectacular finish was overshadowed by Tony Finau, who penned a bit of Augusta National folklore as he hobbled into contention.. On a day that saw Tiger Woods back at the Masters for the first time since 2015 and reigning champion Sergio Garcia record a 13 - the highest score ever for a single hole at the tournament - it was Finau who stole the show by grinding out a 68 to join Matt Kuchar on four-under.. Spieth, the 2015 champion and runner-up in 2014 and 2016, sputtered through his first seven holes, mixing two birdies with two bogeys, before carding an eagle at the eighth then reeling off five straight birdies from the 13th.. The three-time major winner signed off with a bogey at the last for a six-under 66 to leave him alone in top spot.. Its round one and I know as well as anyone anything can happen here at ...

Virtually every region of China is represented here, and many of these authentic folktales have never before been made available to the English-speaking world.The stories, each of which is accompanied by a brief introduction, are thematically grouped: dragon tales, love, magic, ghosts, monsters, and evil spirits, history and legend, fairy tales and fable, and human nature.Readers of every age will be both instructed and entertained by these charming folktales.
In comparison with literature and history that are as if fixed memory of the people, various, wise and well constructed, the folklore (both poetic and musical) is in a greater degree eternal, not getting old feeling of boundless and unexhausted forces - equally in pleasures and in troubles. Even in complicated and refined, if to view in the aspect of subject, rhythm or musical - verbal character, folklore genres we are always captured and amazed by spontaneous perception of the world, natural emotions and opinions in their expression. Typical national features of each people, its way of thinking, specificity of mental and emotional models are shown in full extent in national songs, folk tunes and epic legends. As a specific phenomenon of the national culture it concentrates the poetic, musical, theatre and ethnographic traditions. Obvious evidence for that became the Second Open Folklore Festival Boysun Bahori in Boysun of Surkhandarya region, which was held on the date of the second ...
I began this project with an intent to explore and document ways folk knowledge and local culture could be tapped in order to build connections to young adult literature. I saw this as a teacher-research project that would explore an extension of traditional reader-response activities, beginning with a recognition of the need to meet readers where they are and building progressively more sophisticated aesthetic responses to literature. Folklore was simply another part of the readers prior knowledge to be tapped to foster response. I did not question the assumption that the purpose for all of this was the study of the novel (and whatever increased reading skill students might gain through the reading of the novel). Literature was primary; folklore was a tool to be used in its service.. By the time I finished the project, I was beginning to understand that the folklore was at least as important as the literature, not simply a tool to be used in service of the teaching of literature. That is to ...
From Marine Sanitation: Fact vs. Folklore by Peggie Hall, copyright 1997, reprinted with permission). ODOR CONTROL IN HOLDING TANKS It really IS possible to have a completely odor-free system!. Youve probably read or heard, over and over again, that the key to odor control is the right hose, that the wrong hose permeates with sewage and causes the system to stink. Thats folklore…a little truth coupled with a lot of misunderstanding. The real key to odor control is in knowing how to incorporate proven sewage management principles-the same ones used in composting and sewage treatment-into the installation of the entire system. What very few people in the marine industry have learned, and why there is so much folklore about odor, is the very nature of sewage itself and how it breaks down, what creates odor and what prevents odor from forming. Once we understood these principles and learned how to apply them to onboard systems, we were able to install systems that are completely odor-free ...
As I become more experienced and knowledgeable in the areas of gardening and raising children, I have observed that they have something in common - there is a lot of folklore and half-truths about each that has been passed down from one generation to the next. For both, the folklore may come in the form of problem diagnosis, treatment, or simple tips on growing (or child-rearing) techniques.Some of the gardening folklore actually has some factual or logical basis. One example has to do with members of the cucurbit family - squash, melons, pumpkins, and cucumbers.

Moreover, the prevalence of obesity has increased for Hispanics in the last decades. Although CVD are among the most expensive and widespread health problems, they are among the most preventable. Evidence shows that diet plays an important role in the development of CVD; population-wide dietary changes are partially responsible for the increasing epidemic of chronic diseases and the consumption of a healthier dietary pattern can help prevent and control CVD morbidity and mortality.. The H.E.A.R.T. (Health Education Awareness Research Team) study was an 8-year NIH funded project that implemented risk-reduction strategies to improve heart health in Hispanics living in the U.S.-Mexico border. Baseline data from the H.E.A.R.T. study was used to evaluate dietary patterns among ...

Its come to my attention that I got a lot less traffic over on Wordpress than I do here at Blogger. Understanding as I do that sometimes people are reluctant to click links or just dont see them I thought I would write this post to introduce you to my fiction blog over at WP. Its a collection of posts from my collaborative fiction writing at Pan Historia. I am reposting writing from three stories at the moment: The Midnight People, Turnskin, and Tombstone. The Midnight People is an original concept in the fantasy genre that derives inspiration from Celtic folklore and Tolkien that I consider a modern fairy tale. It often has horror elements and is written with an adult audience in mind. Turnskin is another original concept in the horror genre, this time, and features werewolves. Again I hope to appeal to an adult audience. I kept some pretty strict rules about lycanthropy and preferred to use a blend of both Western and American Indian folklore for inspiration. The last genre Im reposting is ...

The rich oral literature and classical literature of the Malays contain a great number of portraits of the people, from the servant to the minister, from the judge to the Rajas, from the ancient to the very contemporary periods, which together form the amorphous identity of the Malays.[101]. Considering the softness and mellifluence of the Malay language, which lends itself easily to the requirements of rhyme and rhythm, the originality and beauty in Malay literature can be assessed in its poetical elements. Among the forms of poetry in Malay literature are - the Pantun, Syair and Gurindam. The earliest form of Malay literature was the oral literature and its central subjects are traditional folklore relating to nature, animals and people. The folklore were memorised and passed from one generation of storytellers to the next. Many of these tales were also written down by penglipur lara (storytellers) for example: Hikayat Malim Dewa, Hikayat Malim Deman, Hikayat Raja Donan, Hikayat Anggun Cik ...
READ BOOK Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes by Cristina Ong (Illustrator). -,-,-,-,ONLINE BOOK Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes by Cristina Ong (Illustrator). -,-,-,-, DOWNLOAD BOOK Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes by Cristina Ong (Illustrator). Book description. In my lifetime, I have read many extended versons of Mother Goose poetry and verses in addition to the 15 that are contained in this Landolls version of Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme book. However, this version, with its selection of traditional Mother Goose poetry and verse is short and to the point! I give a thumbs up for the artistic quality because each poetry/verse is represented with colorful and detailed illustrations that enables a non or immergent reader to use their imagination about what is happening in the plot. The pictures are true to color and shape depictions of real-life objects that a child nursery or primary child may have already seen or been exposed to at one time or another. Even if the viewer is unable to read or comprehend the ...
And theyll come home, Dragging their tails (tales) behind them. Little Bo-Peep. Somehow this scripture and the nursery rhyme I learned when I was a little girl keep running into each other in my spirit. The sheep are the lost souls who are thirsty for truth; yet instead of meeting Jesus, the Good Shepherd, they are being deceived by wolves in sheeps clothing. Not only has Bo-Peep lost her sheep, The Church (every denomination included) has lost Gods Sheep.. Of course there is a major difference between the Bible and Nursery Rhymes. The Bible is the Word of God. Nursery Rhymes are friendly little human inspired teaching tools often connected to fable and conjecture. The Bible has eternal power to liberate us from our fears and problems. Nursery rhymes are not nearly that reliable. For example, while Bo-Peep knows that the sheep are lost and we do too; unlike Bo-Peep, we know where to find the lost sheep - the least of these. Its just that too many of us are caught up in concerns about ...

Understanding human nature is a fundamental starting point for anyone attempting to build a coherent political philosophy. Generally speaking, there are two views: Human nature is either fixed or malleable. Traditionally, conservatives, libertarians, and classical liberals fall into the camp that believes human nature is fixed but with tendencies toward both good and evil. Progressives, liberals, socialists, Marxists, and others view human nature as malleable, that is, it can be changed.-Human Nature: A Conservative, Classical Liberal & Libertarian View ...

Antibacterial activities of 7 plant extracts were evaluated against 5 bacterial strains using well diffusion assay at different concentration (10%, 20% and 30%) and the results were compared with therapeutically used antibiotics. Rapid formation of inhibition zones within 24 hours of incubation was obtained with ethanolic extracts (30%) of Justicia gendarussa against all tested strains. Ethanol extracts (30%) of the Gymnema sylvestre produces a maximum inhibition zone of 24mm against Pseudomonas aeruginosa which are known to be multi-resistant to drugs, while the standard values lies behind 17mm. Cluster analysis was applied to find out the similar groups of solvent extracts in their antibacterial action. Ethanolic plant extracts figured a separate cluster with the high antibacterial activity. Significant correlations were observed between the extract concentrations and antibacterial activity (P , 0.01).. Key words: Antibacterial activity, plant extracts, inhibition zone, cluster analysis ...
From the 1750s until the 1840s, the interest in Icelandic manuscripts of mythology and heroic sagas, as well as various forms of Nordic folklore, entered a new phase. One of the central reasons for this was an emergent attention to vernacular, national, and even primitive literature associated with the rise of Romanticism. Investigations of the Nordic past had been carried out before this time, and a popular craze for all things Viking came later in the 19th century, but the Romantic period marks a major juncture in relation to providing the Old North with cultural meaning. If the intellectual history of rediscovering Old Norse texts (i.e., poetry and prose written in the North Germanic language until the 14th century, known primarily from Icelandic manuscripts) and medieval Nordic folklore (found in medieval ballads, sagas, and heroic legends) differed in various European countries, there was also a remarkable sense of common aim and purpose in the reception history as it developed during the ...

Are amputees misrepresented in mythology? What about people with dysfunctional body parts, such as paralysed parts or the like?. Much, of the mythology, I have seen, has figures, with some regular body post replaced by something else. But, so as to thus far, I have not seen any mythological figures with missing body parts (other than perhaps cyclopes, but these do not have missing eyes, just a different eye configuration; likewise we have people with multiple arms, but the multiplicity seems to be never zero).. I would like to know about the existence of mythological figures, with (preferably congenital, or otherwise) amputation-like features (e.g. one or more missing legs, hands, arms, fingers, paralyses, likewise or etcetera). Some with missing teeth are common, any ones with missing teeth that can actually produce good sounds and play a good part in the underlying film (perhaps representing something related to liberalism)? I am looking for both bad and good figures, but a bit fed up of the ...
Historically, natural products have been used since ancient times and in folklore for the treatment of many diseases and illnesses. Classical natural product chemistry methodologies enabled a vast array of bioactive secondary metabolites from terrestrial and marine sources to be discovered. Many of these natural products have gone on to become current drug candidates. This brief review aims to highlight historically significant bioactive marine and terrestrial natural products, their use in folklore and dereplication techniques to rapidly facilitate their discovery. Furthermore a discussion of how natural product chemistry has resulted in the identification of many drug candidates; the application of advanced hyphenated spectroscopic techniques to aid in their discovery, the future of natural product chemistry and finally adopting metabolomic profiling and dereplication approaches for the comprehensive study of natural product extracts will be discussed.

Abstract. We will approach in this article the question of human nature in economics. The traditional homo oeconomicus, as presented in mainstream economics, seems to represent the model of a perfect economic individual. We will question whether the fundamental coordinates of homo oeconomicus, rationality, self-interest and selfishness, capture the essence of human beings and if there is an universal human nature. We propose a more flexible portrait of the economic individual, with insights from recent psychological research, and we suggest that it is society which shapes human nature and character. There is no fixed or inherited human nature. An environment of inequalities makes the individual act in a selfish and utilitarian way, while a more fair social organization would make individuals altruistic and more cooperative. Values are also missing from the traditional portrait of homo oeconomicus. Human beings do not simply and always pursuit optimization, but choose often guided by ethical ...
Inhaltsangabe: What is the broadest significance of musical rhythm? Human attitudes to the world are reflected in it, according to Gustav Becking. Writing in the 1920s, Becking proposed a novel method of finding systematic differences of attitude between individual composers, between nations, and between historical time periods. He dealt throughout with Western classical music, from the period approximately 1600-1900. His method was to observe in fine detail the pattern of motion and pressure traced out by a small baton allowed to move in sympathy with a given musical excerpt. The various patterns arising for individual composers were represented graphically, and in that form became known as Becking curves . Implications were touched upon in psychology, sociology and philosophy. His thesis is now published in English translation from the original German for the first time, with many annotations.. About the Author: Gustav Becking (1894-1945) studied at the Universities of Leipzig and ...

The extensors lie astride the lower arm and also are connected in a much more complicated way than the flexors to the dorsum of the fingers. The tendons join with the interosseous as well as lumbrical muscle mass to develop the extensorhood mechanism. The main feature of the extensors is to straighten out the digits. The thumb has 2 extensors in the forearm; the tendons of these type the physiological snuff box. Additionally, the index finger and the little finger have an added extensor, utilized as an example for pointing. The extensors are situated within 6 separate areas. The 1st area includes abductor pollicis longus and also extensor pollicis brevis. The Second area consists of extensors carpi radialis longus and brevis. The Third compartment includes extensor pollicis longus. The extensor digitorum indicis and extensor digititorum communis are within the 4th compartment. Extensor digiti minimi is in the fifth, and also extensor carpi ulnaris remains in the Sixth ...
This project will tackle one of the most important big questions about human nature: how to reconcile contemporary scientific assumptions about the physical nature of human beings with traditional religious assumptions about the importance of mind, soul and inner life. Specific activities of this project include: (i) a comprehensive analytical review of current approaches to embodied cognition in psychology and the philosophy of mind; (ii) the exploration of the relative contributions that embodied cognition research can make both to the dialogues between the sciences and religious accounts of human nature, and to interfaith dialogue; (iii) the staging of a major international conference on embodied cognition and religious thought. Concrete outputs include: (i) an original book on embodied cognition and religious concepts of human nature; (ii) a comprehensive analytical review of current approaches to embodied cognition in psychology and the philosophy of mind; (iii) an article on embodied ...
The ancient Chinese philosopher Mengzi and the early modern French philosopher Rousseau both argued that human nature is good. The ancient Chinese philosopher Xunzi and the early modern English philosopher Hobbes argued that human nature is not good.. I interpret this as an empirical disagreement about human moral psychology. We can ask, who is closer to right?. 1. Clarifying the Question.. First we need to clarify the question. What do Mengzi and Rousseau mean by the slogan that is normally translated into English as human nature is good? There are, I think, two main claims.. One is a claim about ordinary moral reactions: Normal people, if they havent been too corrupted by a bad environment, will tend to be revolted by clear cases of morally bad behavior and pleased by clear cases of morally good behavior.. The other is a claim about moral development: If people reflect carefully on those reactions, their moral understanding will mature, and they will find themselves increasingly wanting to ...
FULL MOON DECREASES SLEEP. Folklore has it that a full moon brings on strange happenings. Indeed, the terms lunatic and lunacy are derived from the Latin word luna which, in turn, refers to the moon. Among the many claims that have been made regarding the power of the full moon to affect human behavior is the claim that it interferes with sleep. However, this assertion has never before been tested by objective scientific study. (On the other hand, many marine animals have been shown to respond to the various phases of the lunar cycle.) Now, a newly published study suggests that humans may also respond to the moons phases, and that sleep may actually be significantly impaired when the moon is full. This new study appears in this current issue of the journal Current Biology.. The data for this clinical research study was collected from a prior sleep study that included 33 adult volunteers. Because this sleep study was conducted in a sleep laboratory where exposure to light (including ...

Rather than the ultimate resolution with Whole-being value through progressive conversion of light-energy units (as is characteristic of higher-density positive development), the negative version posits ultimate aggrandizement in parallel duplication of Whole-being value through maximum incorporation of available radiance.. Thats why its said that Lucifers Legions can appear as angels of light!. Exactly. In fact, Lucifer means Light-bearer, bringer of the Light. Light isnt inimical to the negative orientation, as is portrayed in our superstitions and folklore; like its positive counterpart, the negative recognizes and overtly values light as sustenance, enabling food for producing integral reactions toward progressively higher alignments. Just as all matter-the food of this dimension-is intellectually understandable as a kind of packaged light-value woven in phosphates of the ATP molecule, so light is overtly valued as the energy-essence/lunchbox of the higher densities-coded as ...
Bill Baker (no relation) is nicer than I am, so dont pin any of my introduction on him. I recently spoke to an auditorium of C-level executives, and the title of my presentation was long but revealing: The Happy Death of Branding, the Next Fad of Storytelling, and the Hopeful Rise of Alignment. I guess that expresses my view of branding: there are a few firms really doing it, and the rest (and majority) arent doing anything differently than they did before, but now they are calling it branding because it sounds upstream. THE ORIGINAL LINK IS BROKEN! HERE IS THE NEW LINK: http://www.recourses.com/recourses-storytelling-and-real-storytellingWhat a great post this is about how storytelling can easily get mucked-up when it gets labeled as branding -- especially when most never receive any formal training in storytelling or understand it dynamics.I love it when the interviewer says, Real storytelling is a very complex skill, and I can sit for days listening
No problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it -ALBERT EINSTEIN. As great seafarers, water was a major aspect of our ancestors lives and, as for us today, an essential element of physical survival. Water is central to Wyrd creation mythology: two mighty regions- fire and ice respectively- seeped together within the yawning chasm- Ginnungagap- creating a mist from which the giant Ymir arose. Hence, wells, rivers and seas were sacred and magical places with many powers ascribed to them. Unsurprisingly therefore, the importance of water to peoples lives was reflected in folklore and language, much of which we still use to this day. We speak of going with the flow, a sea of love, feeling drained or overflowing with emotion; of secrets leaking out or fishing for a complement; obviously, the list is endless. But essentially, water was a metaphor for lifes energies, one our ancestors must have understood well because of their intimate link with it. Today, although ...

Andy gets this sad tale right. My partner Herb Peckham and I were free-lance writers brought in to create a manual for Macintosh Basic, which we did. More about that later. I first met Donn when we were both serving on the ANSI Basic Standards committee, whose goal was to set up specifications for a modern version of Basic that would contain loop structures, if-then blocks, and procedure calls, so the notorious GO TO statement could go away.

I had a lot of experience back in Holland disassembling z80 machines and implementing my own OS(JWA-Forth) on them. So it wasnt too hard to disassemble the ROMs of the mac.

The desk accessories where able to run in parallel to the application. Every application would call SystemEvent. So i made each application look like a desk accessory to the other applications. The one problem left was memory management. Since the mac was only using 24 bit addressing, i used the upper 8 bits in each handle to remember who owned the allocated memory. The running application would have the bits set to 0. New memory allocated defaults ...
