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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
Visual images of our own and others body parts can be highly similar, but the types of information we wish to extract from them are highly distinct. From our own body we wish to combine visual information with, at least, somatosensory, proprioceptive and motor information in order to guide our interpretation of sensory events and our actions upon the world. For others bodies we only have visual information available, but from that we can derive much useful social information including their age, health, gender, emotional state and intentions. Consequently, a challenge for the brain is to sort visual images of our own bodies, to be integrated with processing from other sensory modalities, from highly similar images of others bodies for social cognition. We explored the possibility that the extrastriate body area (EBA) may help to accomplish this sorting. Previous work had suggested that the EBA is responsive to images of both our own and others ...

We developed a ubiquitous healthcare system consisted of aphysiological signal devices, a mobile system, a device provider system, a healthcare service provider system, a physician system, and a healthcare personal system. In this system, wireless body area network (WBAN) such as ZigBee is used to communicate between physiological signal devices and the mobile system. WBAN device needs a specific function for ubiquitous healthcare application. We propose a scanning algorithm, dynamic discovery and installation, reliable data transmission, device access control, and a healthcare profile for ubiquitous healthcare system.

To describe this viewpoint as controversial greatly understates its tremendous reach. Were it true, it would mean that nearly every scientist in the biological and behavorial sciences, nearly every great poet, dramatist, and novelist, and all great statemen, generals, businessmen, etc. have been wrong; for nearly everyone who has ever studied, described, bargained with, dealt with, or commanded human beings has assumed that man is not a being of self-made soul, that his "soul" (or character) is a product of many factors, and that something called "human nature" most definitely exists and can be used to make generalizations concerning how human beings are likely to react to various incentives. Scientists have discovered, for example, that whether an individual is extroverted or introverted is determined by his genes. As scientists learn more about how DNA influences human ...

The initial principal focus (January 1, 2007 to August 31, 2008) was on selection and preparation of the test site and thorough studies of its geology, environmental conditions (air, soil, and vegetation) and produced fluids, as well as seismic imaging and establishing the background conditions prior to CO2 injection. Researchers determined and documented the petrology, sedimentology, and stratigraphy of the Rodessa Formation in the vicinity of the test site at an unprecedented level of detail and performed realistic and informative reservoir simulations and visualizations. A study thoroughly documented the environmental and ecological background conditions surrounding the site. Seismic signals were recorded under baseline water flood conditions. The minimum miscibility pressure and absence of precipitation from oil in the presence of CO2 were established. An economic analysis identified the optimum CO2 slug size for water-alternating-gas oil recovery under specified CO2 cost and oil price ...
The Sex-Strike Theory Of Human Origins. Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 18:45. Professor Chris Knight is best known for his highly original sex-strike theory of human biological and cultural origins. Instead of attempting to explain human nature piecemeal, one theory for each component, Knights approach is designed to join up the dots. Spectacularly confirmed by reasons discoveries in archaeology, this is one of the few successful attempts to put together the big picture, explaining religion, language, sexual morality and the whole range of distinctively human characteristics on the basis of one simple principle..

In the Buddhist countries of southern Asia, there never arose any serious differences on the fundamentals of Buddhism. All these countries - Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Thailand, have accepted the principles of the Theravada school and any differences there might be between the various schools is restricted to minor matters.. The earliest available teachings of the Buddha are to be found in Pali literature and belongs to the school of the Theravadins, who may be called the most orthodox school of Buddhism. This school admits the human characteristics of the Buddha, and is characterised by a psychological understanding of human nature; and emphasises a meditative approach to the transformation of consciousness. The teaching of the Buddha according to this school is very plain. He asks us to abstain from all kinds of evil, to accumulate all that is good and to purify our mind . These can be accomplished by The Three ...
Warning: Dont try this move at home.. In February, virtuoso Russian ballerina Diana Vishneva danced the premieres of three pieces created for her in a program called Beauty in Motion at the Orange County Performing Arts Center (read our review of the performance and 2003 profile of the glamorous Vishneva). Now, the 32-year-old star and Beauty in Motion, which was co-commissioned and co-produced by OCPAC and Ardani Artists, have been nominated for two Russian Golden Mask Awards. Not to be confused with the Golden Globe, the Golden Mask is a national theater prize created in 1994 by the Theater Union of Russia and awarded to productions in the categories of drama, opera, ballet, operettas and musicals, and puppet theater. Beauty in Motion will be featured at 2009s Golden Mask Festival in Moscow, to be held March 27 through April 18. --Diane Haithman.

Donald Moss, Ph.D. A chapter included in: D. Moss (Ed.). (1998). Humanistic and Transpersonal Psychology: A Historical and Biographical Sourcebook. Westport, CT: Greenwood Publishing. Reprinted with permission of Greenwood Publishing Group. This book is available from AAPBs Bookstore or from Greenwood at http://info.greenwood,com/books/o313291/0313291586.html Abstract : Chapter Ten summarizes the Biofeedback movement, which serves as the arena where high tech meets the higher states of consciousness. The concept of biofeedback was introduced at a conference in Santa Monica in 1969. The image of electronic equipment guiding human beings to a greater awareness and control over their own physiology and consciousness appealed to both white coated experimental scientists and the white robed gurus of the higher consciousness movement. Biofeedback encourages the humanistic dream that the ...
The substance of what Im interested in is that its the genes that are related to behavior, and how they work. The big insight is that genes are the agents of nurture as well as nature. Experience is a huge part of a developing human brain, the human mind, and a human organism. We need to develop in a social world and get things in from the outside. Its enormously important to the development of human nature. You cant describe human nature without it. But that process is itself genetic, in the sense that there are genes in there designed to get the experience out of the world and into the organism. In the human case youre going to have genes that set up systems for learning that are not going to be present in other animals, language being the classic example. Language is something that in every sense is a ...
For any norm Nk that we institute, there is a prior norm Nk − 1 that specifies that when the acts of institution of Nk are performed, then Nk has such-and-such force.. On pain of a regress incompatible with the empirical facts of humanitys finite past, any instituted norm must be grounded in an uninstituted norm. What are these uninstituted norms like?. Are they specific to our human nature or do they apply to all rational beings or are some of one sort and some of the other? Thinking about some issues in ethics, language, epistemology and decision theory has made me think that it is likely that at least some of the uninstituted norms are specific to human nature rather than to all rational beings.. Also, what types of norms are the uninstituted norms, and how do they relate to the types of norms that they ground? For instance, are instituted linguistic norms grounded in uninstituted linguistic norms or in ...
197) analysis of existing social life. Professor Ellwoods conception of the function of consciousness is the orthodox functional one that consciousness secures the adaptation of behavior at times of change.. The fundamental topics with which the book deals from this conservative point of view are the problems of social unity, of social continuity, of normal or gradual social change and of abnormal or sudden social change. The author prefaces his discussion of these themes with a chapter on Organic and Social Evolution and one on Human Nature and Human Society. In the former, after considering the biological factors that have led to the forms of animal association, he points out that the intellect is the distinctively human element in human social life. In the latter, he first rejects as inadequate or false the passive, hedonistic, egoistic and individualistic theories of ...
We may not admit that modern societies and cultures are basically divergent and dissimilar as far as their nature is concerned, yet it cannot be denied that in regard to their form and quality they widely vary. Now the question is: What is the future of human societies? Will these cultures and civilizations and these societies and nationalities for ever continue to retain their existing position? Or will humanity move towards a single culture, a single civilization and a single society and will all societies one day coalesce and assume a genuine human form? This question hinges on the question of the nature of society and the relation between individual and collective spirits.. It is evident that if we believe in the theory of the fundamentality of human nature and hold that the collective existence of man, his collective life and the collective spirit of society are the ...
Levi was a distant descendant of Abraham. Abraham was long dead when Levi was born. But the text says that Levi paid tithes to Melchizedek. How is this possible? It seems the answer lies in the idea that one person represented his descendants. This would explain why Levi is said to have paid tithes to Melchizedek because his distant father Abraham did so and because Levi was "in" the loins of his distant father Abraham. Likewise, sin entered the world through Adam and not Eve because Adam was the representative head of mankind. If this is so, then Jesus would not have received a sin nature from His father Joseph since Joseph had no biological paternity in relation to Jesus. Therefore, his sin nature would not have been passed down to Jesus. But since he had a human mother, He had human nature. We can see He was both God and man because He is called both the son of God and the son of man. If it is true, then we can see that Jesus had a divine ...
The Varieties of Religious Experienceis certainly the most notable of all books in the field of the psychology of religion and probably destined to be the most influential [one] written on religion in the twentieth century, said Walter Houston Clark inPsychology Today. The book was an immediate bestseller upon its publication in June 1902. Reflecting the pluralistic views of psychologist-turned-philosopher William James, it posits that individual religious experiences, rather than the tenets of organized religions, form the backbone of religious life. Jamess discussion of conversion, repentance, mysticism, and hope of reward and fears of punishment in the hereafter--as well as his observations on the religious experiences of such diverse thinkers as Voltaire, Whitman, Emerson, Luther, Tolstoy, and others--all support his thesis. Jamess characteristic humor, his ability to put down the pretentious and to be unpretentious, and his willingness to take some risks in his choices of ancedotal data or
Michael, the forever prankster, first thought it would be fun to see just how far the tabloid can be led on and he himself came up with elaborate hoax and pranks. He posed for a picture laying in a hyperbaric chamber and his manager, Frank Dileo fed false rumors to the tabloid media - which he and Michael thought up - that Michael actually slept in a hyperbaric chamber in the hopes of prolonging his life. Another false rumor circulated by Dileo was that Michael wanted to buy the bones of the Elephant Man. The tabloid naturally ate up all such news and eventually started coming up with its own false rumors which became more salacious and mean-spirited in nature to the point that Michael realized that his innocent prank turned into a monster. Thanks to the tabloid media portrayal, the public was fed a completely false image of Michael who became a weird, wacky cartoon character and the butt of all media jokes on an international scale ...

It is often said that humans are social animals without really thinking what that implies. Many creatures are social, in the sense that they live in groups, but there are wide differences in what social means - from the simple semi-chaos of herding for cattle or deer through to the elaborate, regimented, division-of-labour society of…
Ice Age Lion Man is world s earliest figurative sculpture Work carved from mammoth ivory has been redated and 1,000 new fragments discovered but it won t make it to British Museum show The star exhibit initially promised for the British Museum s Ice Age Art show will not be coming but for a good reason. New pieces of Ulm s Lion Man sculpture have been discovered and it has been found to be much older than originally thought, at around 40,000 years. This makes it the world s earliest figurative sculpture. At the London exhibition, which opens on 7 February, a replica from the Ulm Museum will instead go on display. The story of the discovery of the Lion Man goes back to August 1939, when fragments of mammoth ivory were excavated at the back of the Stadel Cave in the Swabian Alps, south-west Germany. This was a few days before the outbreak of the Second World War. When it was eventually reassembled in 1970, it was regarded as a standing bear or big cat, but with human ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The effects of target wavelength on dynamic visual acuity under photopic and scotopic viewing. AU - Long, G. M.. AU - Garvey, Philip M.. PY - 1988/1/1. Y1 - 1988/1/1. N2 - The effects of target wavelength on the resolution of moving targets were investigated over a range of target velocities under both photopic and scotopic viewing conditions. The wavelength of the photopically matched targets had no effect on dynamic acuity under the bright background condition. However, with low background luminance the wavelength of the targets had pronounced effects, with blue targets producing far superior resolution and red targets, the poorest resolution. These results were maintained over both 250- and 400-ms target durations and regardless of whether initial target position was foveal or peripheral. The likely contribution of the rod system to dynamic visual acuity under some conditions is proposed, and possible implications for applied settings are discussed.. AB - The effects of target ...

In scholastic moral philosophy what ought to be done is strongly grounded in the nature of being that is to say the "ought" is based on the "is." From a practical perspective this means that the ought is circumscribed by the immutability of human nature that is, bounded by a fixed human anthropology. The essence of our human being then is presumed to be unchanging not evolving and is not relative to time or place. The Enlightenment needless to say wrecked havoc with this principle especially the post-Enlightenment philosophy of Utilitarianism and the post-modern tendencies toward subjectivism and moral relativism. ...

For this lecture - the rest of this lecture and then the next couple of lectures, Ill be discussing some basic aspects of human nature that are, to some extent or another, informed by evolutionary theory. And what I want to start for the remainder of this lecture is a discussion of rationality. Now, some of you maybe not want to go into - not want to go into psychology because theres no Nobel Prize for psychology. You might all think, "Hey, if Im going to go into the sciences I want a Nobel Prize. Think how proud Bubby and Zadie would be if I won a Nobel Prize. Wouldnt that be the best?" You can get one. Psychologists have won the Nobel Prize. Most recently, Danny Kahneman won a Nobel Prize. You win it in economics, sometimes medicine; not a big deal. He won it for his work done over the course of many decades on human rationality. And this work was done in collaboration with Amos Tversky, who passed away several years ago. And this work ...
This view seems to be THE greatest threat against this system right now. I believe it is due to ENLIGHTENMENT being the greatest threat. This may be why many TIs as well as the public are being brainwashed into accepting a Christian point of view or a Satanic one. Both are strict and really dont allow for much enlightenment. The Satanic view is hateful of humans (Lucifers angry side or core difference with human nature) and simply deems all others unworthy. Their view is that Christians are in existence to clean up the mess and casualties of their greed driven, self centered, elitist system that excludes those not like them. Christians are so various in their beliefs that its hard to even get a hold on what they believe. Most of it seems like just another submission to a deity and to a strict code of actions in life that excludes enlightenment and the use of the Will. Also very disturbing is the blood-cult like Christian Right who believe in ...
The language used by geneticists to describe the genes is permeated with biblical imagery. Geneticists call the genome the Bible, the Book of Man and the Holy Grail. They convey an image of this molecular structure as more than a powerful biological entity: it is also a mystical force that defines the natural and moral order. And they project an idea of genetic essentialism, suggesting that by deciphering and decoding the molecular text they will be able to reconstruct the essence of human beings, unlock the key to human nature. As geneticist Walter Gilbert put it, understanding our genetic composition is the ultimate answer to the commandment know thyself. Gilbert introduces his lectures on gene sequencing by pulling compact disk from his pocket and announcing to his audience, This is you. Former director of the Human Genome Project and Nobel Prize winner James Watson has proclaimed in public interviews ...
In the literature on Sens capability approach, studies focusing on the empirical measurement of conversion factors are comparatively rare. We add to this field by adopting a measure of conversion efficiency that captures the efficiency with which individuals convert their resources into achieved functioning. We use a non-parametric efficiency procedure ... read more borrowed from production theory and construct such a measure for a set of basic functionings, using data from the 2005 wave of the British Household Panel Survey. In Great Britain, 49.88% of the individuals can be considered efficient while the mean of the inefficient individuals reaches one-fifth less functioning achievement. An individuals conversion efficiency is positively affected by getting older, being self-employed, married, having no health problems and living in the London area. On the other hand, being unemployed, separated/divorced/widowed and (self-assessed) disabled decrease an individuals conversion efficiency ...
W, 2:00-5:00. In a famous passage in the "introduction" to David Humes A Treatise Concerning Human Nature, Hume noted that "Tis no astonishing reflection to consider, that the application of experimental philosophy to moral subjects should come after that to natural at the distance of above a whole century; since we find in fact, that there was about the same interval betwixt the origins of these sciences; and that reckoning from THALES to SOCRATES, the space of time is nearly equal to that betwixt my LORD BACON and some late philosophers in England, who have begun to put the science of man on a new footing, and have engaged the attention, and excited the curiosity of the public. So true it is, that however other nations may rival us in poetry, and excel us in some other agreeable arts, the improvements in reason and philosophy can only be owing to a land of toleration and of liberty." In the footnote appended in this passage Hume gives as examples of these new moral ...
The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to religion: Religion - organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence. Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred histories that are intended to explain the meaning of life and/or to explain the origin of life or the Universe. From their beliefs about the cosmos and human nature, people derive morality, ethics, religious laws or a preferred lifestyle. According to some estimates, there are roughly 4,200 religions in the world.

The Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) was a projective psychological test created by Harvard psychologist Henry A. Murray and his lover Christina Morgan in the 1930s. The test entered the nascent intelligence service of the United States (the OSS) during the Second World War due to its celebrated reputation for revealing the deepest aspects of an individuals unconscious. It subsequently spread as a scientifically objective research tool capable not only of dredging the unconscious depths, but also of determining the best candidate for a management position, the psychological complexes of human nature, and the unique characteristics of a culture. Two suppositions underlie the utility of the test. One is the power of narrative. The test entails a calculated abuse of the subjects tested, based on their inability to interpret their own narrative. The form of the test requires that a subject fail to decipher the coded, unconscious meaning their narrative reveals. ...
Some of this discussion misses the point: 1) We must come up with an agreed definition of contemporary cynicism. I would propose something along the lines of "belief that people, societies behave hypocritically vis-a-vis their stated ideals" 2) Some people in society ( perhaps after interacting with a cynic ) come to believe that cynicism is concerned with pessimism with regards to social outcomes or a desire to be uncooperative or unwillingness to have or sustain ideals.. This duality can be summarized by the question : "Is it right to call a spade a spade if it is an orange?". That is to say, we must decide if the correct definition of cynicism is from the cynics POV or that of his or her critics. Without accurately exploring the motivations and perspectives of the cynic, we really dont do justice to the topic any more than if we tried to understand Buddhism or Stoicism only from the POV of its antagonists.. Remember that contemporary cynicism, insofar as it makes judgements on ...
It was 10 years ago today, on October 25, 2005 that I survived being beaten by a group of teens. The incident, rumored to be a hate crime, left me only temporarily emotionally and physically defeated. An acoustic neuroma, or vestibular schwannoma, was discovered shortly after and removed in a major surgery a few months later. Unfortunately, the brain tumor is back and I will be undergoing radiation soon.. Throughout life, Ive only known challenges. Whether it be paternal abandonment, sexual abuse as a child, maternal rejection, homelessness, violence, whatever obstacles have come my way, I have always managed to persevere. Perhaps my work as a writer and activist will be trumped by personal history but, however history remembers me, I have enjoyed a fantastic life and survived more adversity than most.. I dont write much about nature other than human nature and rarely in metaphors. I get props at colleges and universities in spite of the fact Ive never received any major ...
Speed and Politics (first published in France in 1977) is the matrix of Virilios entire work. Building on the works of Morand, Marinetti, and McLuhan, Virilio presents a vision more radically political than that of any of his French contemporaries: speed as the engine of destruction. Speed and Politics presents a topological account of the entire history of humanity, honing in on the technological advances made possible through the militarization of society. Paralleling Heideggers account of technology, Virilios vision sees speed--not class or wealth--as the primary force shaping civilization. In this technical vitalism, multiple projectiles--inert fortresses and bunkers, the metabolic bodies of soldiers, transport vessels, and now information and computer technology--are launched in a permanent assault on the world and on human nature. Written at a lightning-fast pace, Virilios landmark book is a split-second, overwhelming look at how ...
David Tibets poetry borrows from a section of Pascals Pensées (lit. "thoughts") - a defence of Christianity by the 17th century philosopher. Patripassian refers to a doctrine considered heretical by the early church that God the Father was incarnate and co-suffered with the human Jesus on the cross. In classical theology it is possible for Christ to suffer only because of his human nature. The poem then is a perfectly pitched denouement to All The Pretty Little Horses, revisiting and invoking the preceding themes: suffering, abandonment, innocence blighted, mystical Passion. What we have here is the most profound and coherent expression of David Tibets Christian mysticism "phase ...
I hate postmodern feminism. As a man by birth, not by choice, I call shenanigans on the idea of a vast male conspiracy in which Im hopelessly complicit. The charge that I am conditioned from birth to oppress all of the women I love, all of the women I know, and all of the women on the planet is not one with which Im likely to acquiesce. The notion that Im doomed to omni-directional socialization smacks of Christianitys putrid communicable mind-disease of "Original Sin". But while Christianity offers potential salvation through authoritarian subjugation of our minds and the rest of our human nature after a life of guilt, postmodern feminism offers nothing more than perpetual guilt and a labryinthian trial of futility that would lead Josef K to rejoice in the relative clarity of his nightmare of Kafkas prison. Like the magical monotheisms strategic defense by placing its rules outside the observable world and beyond the understanding of feeble brains, postmodern feminism holds ...
The urge to misbehave and the desire to be anonymous always visit me together. Like partners making a sales call, they do their best to convince me that I can afford to do something wrong because I won t have to pay.. Human nature tells us to use the cover of anonymity to avoid taking the blame for the bad things we do. God, however, tells us something else. He wants us to use anonymity to avoid taking credit for the good that we do (Matt. 6:4). Why is it that the urge to remain anonymous seldom accompanies my desire to do good!. The Bible says we re not to let one hand know the good that the other is doing (vv.3-4). In other words, within the body of Christ our deeds of charity should be done without calling attention to ourselves. This does not mean, however, that God wants good deeds to remain hidden; it just means that they should be done in a way that makes a good name for God, not ourselves (5:16).. When we volunteer our services or make donations to ...
The ethical treatment of animals is one of serious academic interest today. Specifically, both the practice of animal experimentation and ethical concerns about it have a long history, going virtually back to the ancient Greek period and continuing to the present day. With new breakthroughs in science and technology, it is likely that this practice will be with us for a long time to come. Thus, this book provides an interdisciplinary approach to the topic by utilizing the insights of cognitive ethology, philosophy, science, and Christian theology in order to present a benign approach to the ethical treatment of experimental animals. The reality and existence of animal minds, animal pain, and animal suffering provide the foundation for animal rights, and subsequently, for more positive treatment. Concrete suggestions are offered with regard to more humane animal legislation, improved animal husbandry conditions, as well as concrete guidelines that offset the burdens to ...
Background. Osteopathic philosophy and practice are congruent with the biopsychosocial model, a patient-centered approach when treating disease, and the view of the person as a unity (i.e., body, mind, and soul). Nevertheless, a unity of being should involve a systematic person-centered understanding of the patients personality as a biopsychosociospiritual construct that influences health (i.e., well-being and ill-being). We suggest Cloningers personality model, comprising temperament (i.e., body) and character (i.e., mind and soul), as a genuine paradigm for implementation in osteopathic practice. As a first step, we investigated (1) the relationships between personality and health among osteopathic patients, (2) differences in personality between patients and a control group, and (3) differences in health within patients depending on the presenting problem and gender.Method. 524 osteopathic patients in Sweden (age mean = 46.17, SD = 12.54, 388 females and 136 males) ...

In normal fetuses, IGF-I and PRL levels showed a positive correlation and GH a negative correlation with gestational age. A negative relation between GH and IGF-I levels was observed, while PRL did not show any correlation with both GH and IGF-I concentrations.

Right, so it might look like on my view abortion is permissible because you had the abortion but that abortion wouldnt have been permissible if you didnt have the abortion. Thats not quite the view, for I think two different reasons. So one reason is that, um, even you have moral status-and in my view back when you were in early fetus you had moral status-but its not that aborting you would have been wrong because if your mother had chosen to abort her pregnancy, then it wouldnt have been the case that you would have had moral status because you would have died as an early fetus, so she would have been aborting something that didnt have moral status. So its not-my view isnt that if you do abort, abortion is OK but if you dont abort, abortion would have been wrong. But what it turns out is that its a contingent matter that you have moral status you actually have moral status but you might not have counted morally at all if you had been aborted. You would have existed but you just would ...
The balance between photosynthesis and respiration in the photic zone determines whether the ocean acts as a sink or source of atmospheric carbon. Photosynthesis drives the biological pump whereby roughly 20-40% of the carbon fixed by phytoplankton is ultimately exported to the deep ocean as sinking biogenic material (Eppley & Peterson 1979; Huntley et al. 1991) and lost from the atmosphere for centuries to millennia. Artificial ocean fertilization experiments have investigated the potential to use the biological pump to mitigate rising atmospheric CO2 levels by fertilizing phytoplankton and subsequently enhancing carbon export. A favoured site for these experiments is the Southern Ocean because it is crucial for atmospheric carbon regulation (Buesseler & Boyd 2003) and has an abundance of nitrogenous nutrients, but a low phytoplankton biomass as a result of iron limitation (Pollard et al. 2009). Fertilization of the Southern Ocean with iron can stimulate phytoplankton blooms and cause ...
Gastonias resident water treatment guru is questioning a state study that has added Mountain Island Lake to a list of "impaired" waterways.. The N.C. Division of Water Quality recently identified 21 lakes and streams that have undesirable pH levels. Mountain Island Lake - the main water source for Gastonia and Charlotte - was one of eight sections of the Catawba River to make the list.. State officials took 34 water samples in the lake between 2006 and 2008, and four of those showed the water was slightly acidic. Acidic water isnt harmful to drink, though it threatens fish and other aquatic life.. But Ed Cross, Gastonias division manager of water treatment, said the states findings stand in stark contrast to what local readings have shown for more than a decade.. "I was kind of stunned by it myself," Cross said Wednesday. "Weve got a summary of 12 years worth of testing data, and theres no indication of this anywhere.". The federal Clean Water Act requires that states evaluate public ...

Karmic considerations aside, what may be even more surprising is that euthanasia is most often performed for reasons other than to relieve physical pain.. The most comprehensive study of the Dutch experience with euthanasia is the 1991 Remelink Report, which showed that "pain was a factor motivating requests for euthanasia in less than half of all cases. More importantly, pain was the sole motivating factor in just 5% of euthanasia cases." A study of physicians who care for nursing-home patients in the Netherlands found that pain was the main rationale in only eleven percent of euthanasia requests. In the U.S., a Washington state study of doctors who performed euthanasia or assisted suicide found that pain figured in only thirty-five percent of the requests.. According to Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, a professor at Harvard Medical School, euthanasia is "a way of avoiding the complex and arduous efforts required of doctors and other health-care providers to ensure that dying patients receive ...
By Laura McVicker, The Columbian, Vancouver, Wash. Jul. 31--Significantly higher-than-normal water temperatures and low oxygen levels in Burnt Bridge Creek have prompted a $500,000 state study to find ways to improve the creeks water quality and fish habitat. The creek is among the worst in Southwest Washington when it comes to meeting the states water quality standards. Fecal coliform, which has been found in high levels, poses health risks to humans; the warm water endangers the creeks fish wildlife, according to Tonnie Cummings, the Department of Ecologys water cleanup coordinator. "We dont know what the sources are in this case," Cummings said. "But, hopefully, the study will help us identify those.". The first part of the testing began this week. It included the release of a fluorescent dye into the stream Tuesday night to monitor water flows. The harmless dye dissipated within minutes, and allowed scientists to gauge how long it takes water to flow downstream as a way ...

Chloropicrin soil fumigation is a specific, but highly efficient mode of soil pathogens control, using specialized technology and procedures. Until recently, it was believed that, among target organisms, it has a negative effect on beneficial soil micro flora causing biological soil vacuum. In 2012/2013, soil samples were taken during commercial soil treatments with fumigant chloropicrin, in three intensive tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) production areas in Italy. Soil microbial population dynamics was investigated 0, 42, and 180 days after treatment, throughout the adoption of semi selective media. The research aimed to determine the effect of chloropicrin soil fumigation on dynamics of pathogenic populations of fungi and bacteria, as well as their natural antagonists from fungal genus Trichoderma ssp. and bacterial genera Pseudomonas ssp. and Bacillus ssp., to evaluate its efficiency with targeted organisms and to justify chloropicrin soil fumigation from an environmental and agronomic ...

The climate of Mississippi and the Gulf South region presents challenges for wood preservation, making water repellents and the environment top considerations.. David Jones, assistant Extension professor in Mississippi State Universitys forest products department, said wood treatments can lengthen the performance of timber by decades.. If we placed an untreated telephone pole in the ground, it would last two or three years. A treated pole will last two or three decades, Jones said. The time to consider treatments is before the wood is in place, especially if it will be in water.. Mississippians use wooden pilings and decking extensively from the salt waters of the Gulf to the lakes, ponds and rivers throughout the state. Even away from bodies of water, the states humidity and rainfall can take a toll on the life expectancy of wood products.. Wood can be degraded by a variety of factors including biological factors, mechanical means, fire, sunlight, and chemicals, Jones said. Biological ...

Moral obligation. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.". Few would disagree that more adherence to this basic guide for human interaction would minimize problems that have to do with skin color, class (socioeconomic level) and crime.. Skin color is a more accurate concept for discussing what is often referred to as race.. Beyond clothing, a major item that our vision allows us to recognize about another human being is skin color.. Just as we can be taught to react positively or negatively toward types of clothing, we can be conditioned about skin color.. But what if an individuals experiences include that a disproportionately large number of persons within a certain range of skin colors or socio-economic levels (or even types of clothing worn) engage in criminal behavior? Would this at the least justify mental alertness?. Mental alertness is a natural aspect of perception.. But it should be tempered with the knowledge that the ...
Some governments provide detailed information on the number of animal experiments carried out each year. In the United Kingdom, for instance, the annual report
Animals And Their Rights!! Essay, Research Paper What is animal experimentation? Scientific researchers use animal experimentation for biomedical and veterinary research to enhance human health and possibly the welfare of other animals. They claim that successful medical treatments including antibiotics, vaccines and other drugs have been developed with the aid of animal experiments, and such research a crucial means of investigation of and the development of treatments for serious diseases.
The ideas of cybernetics, and especially that of feedback control, have impressed themselves on society in many ways, of which factory automation is only one. Self-monitoring, or self-awareness, is one of the central components of human individual intelligence (Halstead, 1947; Russell and Russell, 1957, and in press). The notion has been grasped at the sociological level. In industry and commerce it is becoming a routine measure for any large organization to devote considerable staff and expense to the monitoring of its own activities (cf. Meier, 1956). We are, therefore, disposed to expect a large and comprehensive literature of sources on the subject of animal experimentation (cf. Russell, in press, a). For it seems reasonable to suppose that science itself must adopt the principle of informative feedback, and animal experimentation in this country alone is an industry running to millions in commercial terms.. It is therefore surprising to discover the relative dearth of ...
Bacteria form the most abundant domain of the Prokaryotic kingdom and are among the earliest forms of life on Earth. Notwithstanding their small size and primitive origin, bacteria still have a tremendous impact on everyday human life. Over the centuries, research into bacteria have provided and enriched the fundamental biological knowledge due to their readily measured processes and effects on higher organisms. Although molecular genetics and microbiology were among the scientific fields that have mostly benefited from the discoveries made in bacteria, our current state of knowledge has gone beyond what anyone could have ever imagined. The present Research Topic aims to cover new and exciting broad aspects of the importance of bacteria to human life, both positive and negative influences. Regulation of bacterial gene expression, replication and segregation control mechanisms, cell to cell communication via quorum sensors, and the relatively ...

Berlin is Germanys Cinema Capital with its large variety of different programmes and events, in particular the International Film Festival Berlin. Yet there are numerous challenges facing the citys cinema landscape today. The cinema of the future cannot solely focus on new forms and techniques of presentation. Cinemas positioning in urban space also has an urbanistic, societal and design dimension. The exhibition included four key issues tackling the physical form of cinema and its socio-cultural role in the city. It was based on two international architecture workshops at ANCB on the cinema of the future and includes the new design for the ZooPalast and its integration in the city. ANCB has realised two successful international architecture workshops on the cinema of the future and its role in urban public space. The series started in 2010 on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the International Film Festival Berlin. The first workshop Berlin Motion with the University of Applied Arts ...
You are definitely right in saying that minimizing undue coactivation will help achieve an economy of motion. The resulting efficiency also pays off in forestalling muscle fatigue, along with the quicker modulation of hand muscles (on/off) that is needed for faster playing. The nervous system seems take care of this minimization on its own, usually, as skill is acquired. But we sure can help the process along by not generating additional tension due to anxiety, or in misbegotten attempts to try harder and concentrate more. Muscle tension from those sources often is not focussed solely on hand/forearm muscles, but will be generalized to back/shoulder/neck muscles, jaw clenching, and so on. Those are good places to monitor. As I said, my canary in the coalmine was the pressure of my planted fingers against the head. Pretty hard to have a tense hand with a light touch on the head - the two just dont go together. For others it may be jaw clenching, pressing their forearm against the rest too hard ...

The aims of this thesis were to explore nurses experiences of stress in the ICU (I), to analyze experiences of moral concerns in intensive care nursing from the perspective of relational ethics (II), to describe the synthesis of the concept of moral stress and to identify preconditions for moral stress (III) and to analyse and describe lived experiences of support in situations characterized by critical care situations and moral stress in intensive care (IV).The design was exploratory and descriptive. Material in studies I, II and IV consisted of interviews with intensive care nurses (10 head nurses and 26 staff nurses) employed in general, thoracic and neonatal intensive care units in five hospitals located in different parts of Sweden. The material in study III data from two studies of professional issues in nursing were used for the analysis: one concerned psychiatric nursing and the other was the previously referred study I.In study I qualitative content analysis and descriptive ...
Rowe was admitted to the hospital suffering from a critical illness. He was given emergency treatment and later underwent surgery. In at least four occasions, Rowes two sons discussed with the hospital the payment for served to be rendered by the hospital. The first of these four conversations took place the day after Rowe was admitted. The sons informed the treating physician that their father had no financial means but that they themselves would pay for such services. During the other conversations, the sons authorized whatever treatment their father needed, assuring the hospital that they would pay for the services. After Rowes discharge, Dr. Peterson brought this action against the sons to recover the unpaid bill for the services rendered to their father. Decision ...

St. Lukes-Roosevelt Institute for Health Sciences, New York, NY - Facility Reports and Information - Resources and Links From Stop Animal Exploitation NOW! (SAEN) - Exposing the truth to wipe out animal experimentation
Humane endpoints are a core refinement concept in animal experimentation. This paper identifies an urgent requirement for individuals and institutions to refocus on humane endpoints as part of the transposition of Directive 2010/63/EU into the national laws of the Member States, and to go beyond their legal construction when setting new guidance or applying humane endpoints in practice. It will be argued that requirements for humane endpoints within the Directive appear not to promote recent advances in best practice, but seem reliant on a narrow and potentially outdated definition of the term. We describe progress that has been made in encouraging change in the construction and application of humane endpoints, and suggest that Directive 2010/63/EU does not sufficiently acknowledge the conceptual complexity of this refinement strategy. For ...

Andy Maniotis (University of Iowa), American Journal of Pathology, 1999 Cancer! Its our Grim Reaper, todays Black Death, a dark and terrible health threat and destroyer of lives. We hear about it, read about it, and fear it more deeply than any other present disease. Ominously, projections indicate that one in every five of us will die of cancer, and 40 percent of us will have a diagnosis of cancer sometime in life. Considering that there are more than 200 different forms of human cancer alone, the hope for a magic bullet that will cure all is just pie in the sky. The disease first went political in 1971, when the Nixon administration declared the War on Cancer. We all know the war has not yet been won, even with billions poured into it every year. In fact, cancer deaths have increased steadily. This humiliating defeat is in large part due to our addiction to animal experimentation. It is an open secret in scientific circles that animal-modeled biomedical research yields ...
First, it is interesting per se, to find common psycho-physiologic grounds between our and other animals behaviour and "psyche." Second, such commonality allows us to explore new ways (treatments, drugs) for dealing with human suffering (anxieties, depressions, phobias etc.). I do not know of any other procedure or behavioural test, or physiological index, that compares anxiety and relief, which would provide 20-fold (2000%) difference in objective measurements (it is usually measured in fractions, like 35% or so). Our rats sigh approx. 25 times/hour spontaneously, less than 10/h when anxious, but more than 180/h when relieved! So, consider, if you really have experimental animals` wellbeing in mind and not just negative feeling about any animal experimentation, that far fewer animals will be required to test a new psychotropic drug or some other procedure, when measuring emotional states (using sighs instead of heart rate, blood pressure etc.) is so dramatically improved ...
Animal experimentation and the models by which it is conducted are a core component of the Preclinical Translational Research Units work. Animal models are the primary mode of research responsible for translating preclinical project work into successful clinical trials, which is why they are a focus of our unit.. We work to create animal models that minimize the consumption of resources, especially time and money, without allowing for any compromise in the integrity of our data or their reproducibility. By continually striving to uphold these standards while continually striving to assess and improve our animal models we ensure that we consistently deliver optimum results and solutions.. Under the Duke Preclinical Translational Research Units expert guidance we hope to be able assist our partners in designing the model and method that allow for the creation of experiments that run correctly the first time, reducing waste and repetition.. We employ the following animal types for our animal ...
