Measurement of delusional ideation in the normal population: introducing the PDI (Peters et al. Delusions Inventory). (1/24)

The Peters et al. Delusions Inventory (PDI) was designed to measure delusional ideation in the normal population, using the Present State Examination as a template. The multidimensionality of delusions was incorporated by assessing measures of distress, preoccupation, and conviction. Individual items were endorsed by one in four adults on average. No sex differences were found, and an inverse relationship with age was obtained. Good internal consistency was found, and its concurrent validity was confirmed by the percentages of common variance with three scales measuring schizotypy, magical ideation, and delusions. PDI scores up to 1 year later remained consistent, establishing its test-retest reliability. Psychotic inpatients had significantly higher scores, establishing its criterion validity. The ranges of scores between the normal and deluded groups overlapped considerably, consistent with the continuity view of psychosis. The two samples were differentiated by their ratings on the distress, preoccupation, and conviction scales, confirming the necessity for a multidimensional analysis of delusional thinking. Possible avenues of research using this scale and its clinical utility are highlighted.  (+info)

The Hound of the Baskervilles effect: natural experiment on the influence of psychological stress on timing of death. (2/24)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether cardiac mortality is abnormally high on days considered unlucky: Chinese and Japanese people consider the number 4 unlucky, white Americans do not. DESIGN: Examination of cardiac and non-cardiac mortality on and around the fourth of each month in Chinese and Japanese subjects and white controls. SETTING: United States. SUBJECTS: All Chinese and Japanese (n=209 908) and white (n=47 328 762) Americans whose computerised death certificates were recorded between the beginning of January 1973 and the end of December 1998. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Ratio of observed to expected numbers of deaths on the fourth day of the month (expected number was estimated from mortality on other days of the month). RESULTS: Cardiac mortality in Chinese and Japanese people peaked on the fourth of the month. The peak was particularly large for deaths from chronic heart disease (ratio of observed to expected deaths = 1.13, 95% confidence interval 1.06 to 1.21) and still larger for deaths from chronic heart disease in California (1.27, 1.15 to 1.39). Within this group, inpatients showed a particularly large peak on the fourth day(1.45, 1.19 to 1.81). The peak was not followed by a compensatory drop in number of deaths. White controls, matched on age, sex, marital status, hospital status, location, and cause of death, showed no similar peak in cardiac mortality. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings of excess cardiac mortality on "unlucky" days are consistent with the hypothesis that cardiac mortality increases on psychologically stressful occasions. The results are inconsistent with nine other possible explanations for the findings-for example, the fourth day peak does not seem to occur because of changes in the patient's diet, alcohol intake, exercise, or drug regimens.  (+info)

The mummy's curse: historical cohort study. (3/24)

OBJECTIVE: To examine survival of individuals exposed to the "mummy's curse" reputedly associated with the opening of the tomb of Tutankhamen in Luxor, Egypt, between February 1923 and November 1926. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS: 44 Westerners identified by Howard Carter as present in Egypt at the specified dates, 25 of whom were potentially exposed to the curse. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Length of survival after date of potential exposure. RESULTS: In the 25 people exposed to the curse the mean age at death was 70 years (SD 12) compared with 75 (13) in those not exposed (P=0.87 for difference). Survival after the date of exposure was 20.8 (15.2) v 28.9 (13.6) years respectively (P=0.95 for difference). Female sex was a predictor for survival (P=0.02). CONCLUSIONS: There was no significant association between exposure to the mummy's curse and survival and thus no evidence to support the existence of a mummy's curse.  (+info)

Experimental control of superstitious responding inhumans. (4/24)

Superstitions were demonstrated with human subjects when presses on one button were reinforced on a VI 30-sec schedule while presses on a second were never reinforced. Superstitious responding, on the second button, was often maintained because presses on that button were frequently followed by reinforcement for a subsequent press on the first button. The introduction of a changeover delay (COD), which separated in time presses on the second button and subsequent reinforced presses on the first button, reduced or eliminated the superstitious responding of these subjects. Some complex superstitions were also demonstrated with other subjects for which the COD was in effect from the beginning of the session.  (+info)

MEDICINE AMONG NEW IMMIGRANTS AND ARAB MINORITIES IN ISRAEL. (5/24)

The reaction to modern medicine and the general health of the new immigrants and Arab populations of Israel are described. The material was gathered during a threemonth visit to Israel where the author participated in the medical care of these persons. While these peoples still share many of the traditional medical superstitions and practices, the new immigrants have progressed much more during the 16 years of Israel's existence. At present over 99% of Jewish women give birth in hospital, whereas only 65% of Israeli Arabs do. The infant mortality rate among the Jews in 1963 was about 21 deaths per 1000 live births, about one-half the rate for Arabs. The importance of understanding the cultural background and social conflicts of these people as a preliminary to the provision of proper medical care is stressed.  (+info)

Females do not have more injury road accidents on Friday the 13th. (6/24)

BACKGROUND: This study reinvestigated the recent finding that females - but not males - die in traffic accidents on Friday the 13th more often than on other Fridays (Nayha S: Traffic deaths and superstition on Friday the 13th. Am J Psychiatry 2002, 159: 2110-2111). The current study used matched setting and injury accident data base that is more numerous than fatality data. If such an effect would be caused by impaired psychic and psychomotor functioning due to more frequent anxiety among women, it should also appear in injury crashes. METHODS: We used the national Finnish road accident database for 1989-2002. To control seasonal variation, 21 Fridays the 13th were compared in a matched design to previous and following Fridays, excluding all holidays, on number of accidents, male/female responsibility for accidents, and the number of dead, injured and overall number of active participants (drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists) as a consequence of the accident. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in any examined aspect of road injury accidents among the three Fridays, either in females or males. Women were not overrepresented in crashes that occurred on Fridays 13th. CONCLUSION: There is no consistent evidence for females having more road traffic crashes on Fridays the 13th, based on deaths or road accident statistics. However, this does not imply a non-existent effect of superstition related anxiety on accident risk as no exposure-to-risk data are available. People who are anxious of "Black Friday" may stay home, or at least avoid driving a car.  (+info)

Prevalence of epilepsy its treatment gap and knowledge, attitude and practice of its population in sub-urban Senegal an ILAE/IBE/WHO study. (7/24)

A door-to-door survey was used to determine the prevalence of epilepsy among 4500 people within the Pikine Health District (population 480,000) Senegal. Prevalence was 14.2/1000, and 23.4% of all people with epilepsy had never received appropriate treatment. Figures for the prevalence had increased since a previous survey in 1989. In parallel a study of knowledge attitude and practice was performed in the same district. Salient findings were that: two-thirds of interviewees had at some time witnessed a seizure, 51% agreed when asked if epilepsy is caused by evil spirits, 35% said epilepsy is contagious, only about 18% said that traditional therapy is best, 60% would not mind their child to play with a child with epilepsy but only 32% would agree if their child would want to marry a person with epilepsy.  (+info)

Experience of isolated sleep paralysis in clinical practice in Nigeria. (8/24)

The supernatural fears associated with the experience of isolated sleep paralysis in the culture of developing countries is sometimes associated with the evolution of somatic symptoms of psychological origin in patients predisposed to neurotic illness. Patients rarely spontaneously volunteer these fears and doctors pay them scant attention. Illustrative case histories that demonstrate the dynamics of the clinical presentation, as well as the treatment approach, are highlighted. It is hoped that doctors in general medical practice and in psychological medicine in developing countries where belief in supernatural causation of illness is rife will consider these factors in order to provide more effective treatment.  (+info)

I will use one topic to teach you important English grammar (the first conditional), as well as vocabulary. Youll also learn a lot about North American culture. Ill teach you all this stuff by talking about superstitions. Is the number 13 bad luck in your culture? If you break a mirror, will you have bad luck? If you find a penny on the ground, do you think you will have a good day? Every culture has beliefs about luck. We call these beliefs superstitions. Some superstitions are common around the world, but many are very specific to a particular country or culture. My mom is really superstitious, so I grew up with a lot of these beliefs. In this video, Ill give you some examples of common North American superstitions, and in the second half of the video, Ill use this topic to teach you how to use the first conditional in English. Watch this video now. If you dont, your computer might get a virus.
Superstitions have captured our imaginations for centuries but we are often unaware of where they came from and why. In her new book Superstition, Sally Coulthard explores the history and background of 50 of these fascinating cultural behaviours, how they affected our everyday, and how many of these beliefs still permeate modern life. From opening umbrellas indoors to not putting new shoes on the table, Sally gets under the skin of these peculiar pastimes and reveals how they started and why they became so popular.
April 14, 2014 - Last week, I asked NewsDash readers whether they believe in certain common superstitions and whether they have any superstitions of their own.

A) Science holds the key to human progress, and superstition is the greatest enemy of science. India is one of the most religiously superstitious countries on earth, and if Indians can shake off the shackles of religion and become more atheistic (or at least agnostic) in their outlook, scientific progress can take effect. Im shocked at the number of educated people who still look up their horoscopes and believe in superstitions. I remember a science class in middle school where the textbook said we should not believe in superstitions, but the teacher, while sort of agreeing, said that there were some superstitions that were true! When her father was in hospital, she said, a house lizard fell on her left shoulder. The next day, she said with a dramatic flourish, they brought home her fathers body. I dont know how many of her young class were influenced, but I thought she was being dishonest by undermining the core lesson that we were supposed to learn. Shes dead now (and I dont know if any ...
After watching the pilot episode of AMCs Rubicon, I felt like my own quirks were tiny compared to that of David Hadas, one of the first episodes key characters. I am pretty sure that anyone who does not live with me, may not know about my quirks, but Hadas are very apparent to those around him in his daily life 24/7. One of his most blatant superstitions is about the unlucky number 13. He would avoid it like one would avoid deadly poison in everything he did. For example, he would go out of his way to avoid stepping on a 13 that was painted on the ground. I am so glad that my quirks are not as extreme as his. Life is complicated enough without adding all these excessive rules to live around ...
The essence of creation and existence cannot be found through the lens of a microscope or telescope or by any other measurement of the physical universe. One cannot comprehend the perfume of a flower or the pain felt by an abandoned lover with meters and calipers. Everything you will ever know about the creative force and ability of a god can be found within you - an Immortal Spiritual Being. How can a blind man teach others to see the nearly infinite gradients that comprise the spectrum of light? The notion that one can understand the universe without understanding the nature of an IS-BE is as absurd as conceiving that an artist is a speck of paint on his own canvas. Or, that the lace on a ballet shoe is the choreographers vision, or the grace of a dancer, or the electric excitement of opening night. Study of the spirit has been booby-trapped by the thought control operation through religious superstitions they instill in the minds of men. Conversely, the study of the spirit and the mind have ...

From kaali billi raasta kaat gai to crows shitting on us, heres a list of some of the stupid superstitions we all believed in as kids !
WHY TONY FAILS. Lets assume that God does not exist. When we die, we will cease to exist in any form. Life was for naught. Our existence has no meaning.. This is not an either/or position. This is an unknowable position. No one knows what happens after this life. You fear us into believing that you are right because the picture you painted of the afterlife is soooo bad without YOUR god/religion/superstition. In your fantasy world this might be the case. How do we know if YOUR god/religion/superstition even exists; Saying that this life sucks without YOUR god/religion/superstition is an argument from extortion. If we live an ultimately meaningless life, then our actions on earth are meaningless as well. What we do does not matter. Your mother and Adolf Hitler are essentially equivalent. For if our lives are meaningless, then there is nothing to base our values on-values do not exist. It does not matter if we steal or give. It does not matter if we kill or save. What we do on this earth ...
As much as people today love to think that they are perfectly logical, they are still a very superstitious bunch. People may not panic at the sight of a black cat anymore, but spend some time around any sports fan and it will be clear that superstition is alive and well in the modern world. Sports spectators superstitions may be somewhat normal, such as having a lucky hat, or downright bizarre, such as knowing that their team will lose the game if they do not eat a potato at halftime. Sports players and performers are arguably even worse. Try to get a pitcher out on the field without their special socks or a musician to play when they are using the cursed music stand. Bathing an angry cat is often easier. People tend to cling to superstitions in spite of themselves. They know that those ancient blue socks do not actually make them run faster or that eating a potato will not improve the performance of a team hundreds of miles away, but the actions are largely harmless and are often backed up by either
I witnessed and photographed one of the most dramatic wild fires on the slopes of Superstition Mountain in the summer of 1979. This fire raged across the slopes of Superstition Mountain with a fifty-foot wall of flame engulfing everything in its path. This fire was caused when a high wind blew over a charcoal grill in somebodys yard near the base of the mountain. One careless neighbor endangered hundreds of lives and millions of dollars worth of property as the fire spread over the mountain within an hour. The smoke was so thick Superstition Mountain could not be seen from State Route 88 (Apache Trail). If it had not been for slurry bombers many homes would have been lost in this fire and lives could have hung in the balance ...
According to livinginthephilippines.com: 1) If one passes through the window instead of the door, a ghost will come. 2) When two dogs bark at night there is a ghost. 3) Before six oclock at night, children should be in the house or else they may bump into a person without a head. 4) When one passes by an anthill, one should ask to be excused, otherwise, a spirit will play tricks on that person. 5) A person who always uses a bandage on Fridays is a witch. 1) If a person bites his tongue, it means somebody is thinking of him. 2) A girl with white spots on her fingernails is inconstant in love. 3) It is bad to sweep the floor at six oclock in the evening for it means driving away good fortune and graces. 4) It is bad to sweep the floor when there are people playing cards or gambling because luck is being swept away. 5) One should not open an umbrella while inside a house; a centipede is likely to fall from the ceiling and he will be bitten by it. 6) If a pregnant woman sews her dress while ...

What do you think of this? Advertising of religion such as scientology, the catholic church, palm reading and other superstitious hogwash such as
The church is a terrible engine of oppression, especially as concerns women.-Elizabeth Cady Stanton. I have endeavored to dissipate these religious superstitions from the minds of women, and base their faith on science and reason, where I found for myself at last that peace and comfort I could never find in the Bible and the church…The less they believe, the better for their own happiness and development… For fifty years the women of this nation have tried to dam up this deadly stream that poisons all their lives, but thus far they have lacked the insight or courage to follow it back to its source and there strike the blow at the fountain of all tyranny, religious superstition, priestly power, and the cannon law. -Elizabeth Cady Stanton. We would be 1,500 years ahead if it hadnt been for the church dragging science back by its coattails and burning our best mids at the stake.-Catherine Fahringer The tragedy is that every brain cell devoted to belief in the supernatural is a brain cell ...

According to Commission (Prevention) of Sati Act 1987, Sati is defined as the act of burning alive of a widow (or any women) along with the body of her deceased husband (including relatives, or object belonging someone like that), irrespective of whether it was voluntary.[11] After he watched the Sati of his own sister-in-law, Ram Mohan Roy began campaigning for abolition of the practice in 1811.[citation needed] The practice of Sati was abolished in British India in 1829 by Governor General Lord William Bentinck.[12] On 4 September 1987, 17 (or 18) year old Roop Kanwar of Deorala village in Sikar district in Rajasthan, who had been married for only 7 months,[13] burned to death on her husbands pyre.[14] It was alleged that the victim had tried to escape, but she was drugged and forced on to the pyre.[15][16] On 1 October 1987, Rajasthan legislative assembly passed an ordinance against Sati, which was later turned into an Act.[17] It was followed by pro-Sati rallies and protests in ...

The deeper I move into traditional realms of theological thought, the more I am convinced that one of the biggest dangers in the teachings of the Institute in Basic Life Principles (IBLP) is that it teaches a subtle form of superstitious determinism. Rather than being free to live our lives without fear, we are taught that any small compromise with the world - even an unintentional or innocent one - may put us in danger of losing our salvation or of being overcome by demonic influence. Hundreds of children had their beloved dolls taken away - some of them had to watch them being destroyed - because Bill Gothard told their families that Cabbage Patch dolls were evil and opened their children to demonic influence. Other people found themselves compelled to divest their homes of family heirlooms because the figurines, masks, or other items, even though used purely for decoration, were focal points for demonic influence, according to Gothards teachings.. I do not doubt that some people found ...

As I noted earlier, the endorsement of naturopathy in Holt Science & Technology: Life Science has clearly been derived from promotional material concocted by one or more naturopaths. It consists entirely of commercial propaganda, it fails to provide any valid account of naturopathy, and it is loaded with deceit. This deceit is reflected in the use of misleading part-truths, the use of statements that deliver false implications, the concealing of facts that might enable students to grasp what naturopathy really is, and the concealing of any information that might enable students to perceive the status of naturopathy in the real world. When was Holts endorsement of naturopathy composed? I do not know the answer to this question, but I know that Dr. Stacey Kargman of Tucson, Arizona, no longer dwells in Arizona. She now is a resident of Maryland, where she runs a business called the Maryland Natural Health Center. According to the Centers Web site, Kargman left Arizona in 2000 and took control ...

There is no area in our minds reserved for superstition, such as the Greeks had in their mythology; and superstition, under cover of an abstract vocabulary, has revenged itself by invading the entire realm of thought. Our science is like a store filled with the most subtle intellectual devices for solving the most complex problems, and yet we are almost incapable of applying the elementary principles of rational thought. In every sphere, we seem to have lost the very elements of intelligence: the ideas of limit, measure, degree, proportion, relation, comparison, contingency, interdependence, interrelation of means and ends. To keep to the social level, our political universe is peopled exclusively by myths and monsters; all it contains is absolutes and abstract entities. This is illustrated by all the words of our political and social vocabulary: nation, security, capitalism, communism, fascism, order, authority, property, democracy. We never use them in phrases such as: There is democracy to ...
Its great for men, too. Implantation bleeding happens while the embryo embeds itself in the uterine wall and usually happens 10 to 14 days after conception. It is very likely that you will be on your feet at some time even though camping. We have many superstition about black cats, but there are superstitions about white cats. The fetus weighs about 2.

I learned a lot on this trip. First of all, I couldnt believe the money Joe was spending on this adventure in the Superstition Mountains. It wasnt long before I found out Joe was spending investors money on this whole operation. Furthermore I couldnt believe anyone would invest money in such a wild scheme as a crystal skull in a buried ancient city hidden in the Superstition Mountains by the Aztecs five hundred years ago. I later found out Joe was using an ancient book as collateral for his adventure. When Joes stories began not to prove out, his investors told him stories about guys who were thrown in the Atlantic Ocean with concrete shoes on. It was at this point he convinced his investors they should make a video documentary of this entire adventure. Believe it or not the investors thought this was a great idea. Joe almost begged me to accompany them and help with technical information for the documentary. He told me if I didnt he might end up in the Atlantic Ocean. I guess I took pity ...
Interesting - but Im not sure I agree with the conclusions about CRP not being causal, I dont think that they can say that based on the studies. The ORs of those SNPs that they do find associated with heart disease are so very small (eg. 1.06 for LEPR) that an OR of 0.98 for CRP I dont think says much. Its like with MTHFR - the 677T SNP is often not found to be associated with heart disease or stroke when the studies just look at gene-disease. When they look at folate or homocysteine levels as well as the gene, then they do find the link, but only in those where homocysteine is high. It could be the same with CRP - if you do a massive study but only look at gene and disease then you may or may not find a link - especially for heart disease which is so common. Without looking at the biomarkers or diet (or both) you cannot make strong conclusions - heart disease is so common that a proper control group is hard to find, maybe the controls were generally disease free because they kept the CRP ...

historian, they were given over to all wickedness, oppression, and villainy of life; which doubtless was accompanied with contempt of the word; though for faith and persuasion we do not find that they were corrupted, and do find that they were tenacious enough of antique discipline, as appeared in their following oppositions to the Roman tyranny, as in Beda. Secondly, It was lost in regard of the purity and power thereof, by blind superstition and antichristian impiety, accompanied also with abominable lewdness, oppression, and all manner of sin, in the face of the sun; so that first profaneness working a despising of the gospel, then superstition ushering in profaneness, have in this land showed their power for the extirpation of the gospel. Oh, that we could remember the days of old, that we could consider the goodness and severity of God; - on them which fell severity, but towards us goodness, if we continue in that goodness; for otherwise even we also shall be cut off! Yet here we may ...

Oh, that we could remember the days of old, that we could consider the goodness and severity of God; - on them which fell severity, but towards us goodness, if we continue in that goodness; for otherwise even we also shall be cut off! Yet here we may ...

A Bird Inside the Building. A bird fluttering inside the huge building, its repetitive pattern like the same window opening and closing, trapping the assumption inside, following its frantic arcs to form mercy at the closed doors to imagined freedom at the high walls, assistance in the form of light that supports wings because the master silence is flight absolved when the bird vanishes inside the building-all the windows open, the bird repeating the pattern of arcs and landings that resemble its mate hovering outside, trying to find a way in.. Three Snow Storms. If you were yourself ...

So, we arrive on the day when superstition runs rife in the western world. 13 witches in a coven, Judas Iscariot, the treacherous member of JCs gang, made the number of participants at The Last Supper 13, the Knights Templar were arrested on Friday 13th and so on. The Thirteenth in the Series is a great episode of the Alan Simpson and Ray Galton brilliant comedy show Hancocks Half Hour, and is a wonderful satire of how the number 13 can set off a chain reaction of superstitious confirmation bias in a gullible individual followed by buying into any amount of New Age nonsense. In 1980 director Sean S. Cunningham had both horror and humour on his mind when he directed and produced the slasher film, Friday the 13th. The humour was designed to relax the audience and the horror came in the form of cheap shocks. It was a pretty bad film in so many ways. It was unoriginal and it kick-started a cynical ...
The tragedy of the Heavens Gate cult, which resulted in the loss of 39 lives, was unfairly compared by some in the media to Catholicism. Here are a few examples.. On Nightline, pictures of the Vatican were shown while introducing the subject of religious cults. On talk radio, Ron Kuby, who assisted the late William Kunstler, said there was no difference between believing that a space ship was coming to save the cult members and a belief in the Immaculate Conception. And Harvard lawyer Alan Dershowitz contrasted the cults beliefs with a belief in angels.. It is tempting to see anti-Catholicism at work here, but in fairness, what it shows is the consequence of believing in nothing. Agnostics and atheists have a hard time understanding anything that is not scientifically verifiable and thus tend to relegate to the bin of superstition any belief in a transcendent universe. That their own beliefs are substantively hollow is not something they are willing to entertain.. At bottom, those who like to ...
As mentioned in a previous blog, The Laika engage the world through four perceptual levels, where each level is linked with an archetype animal, a chakra, a compass point, and is associated with one of the four energetic bodies that make up the human energy field.. Jaguar, the animal of the West direction, represents the mind - the realm of thoughts and ideas. Jaguars are curious and inquisitive - our cat instinct leads us to the right people and situations (or the wrong ones, if our feline instinct is flawed).. Jaguar perception is associated with the mammalian brain, that of emotion and deep feelings of love, intimacy, family, caring, and compassion. Yet its also the brain of aggression, superstition, amulets and charms. The language of the level of jaguar is spoken or written words, which we use to form and express ideas, beliefs, and feelings. Here we understand symbols and signs and can agree that certain sounds are words that mean something specific.. The perceptual state of jaguar is ...
Historically in Scotland red wool wound around pieces of rowan were frequently used to protect against witchcraft, they were attached to babies cradles and little wooden crosses wrapped with wool were kept in a pocket or sewn into the lining of clothing. The witchcraft trial of Margaret Barclay in 1613 refers to this custom. The only talisman that they discovered in her possession was a thread bound cross of rowan; the very thing superstition believed would protect her from what she herself was being accused of, witchcraft. The discovery of the charm was enough to condemn her as it was a symbol of non Christian belief and she was, as so many other innocent people, executed. The old saying damned if you do and damned if you dont would seem to sum up her case. The house used in my images, located in the middle of a forest,( the forest being a place to become physically lost and psychologically found) is known as Keiselghur, this is the German name for Diatomite, which was extracted from this ...
Observe that the man (and a great multitude of others) believed the popular conception regarding the alleged periodic appearance of an angel to stir the water of the pool. The Bible is not to be blamed as giving sanction to this idea merely on the basis of the personal sentiments held by the people of the day, since the Bible merely reports their beliefs-as indicated by the sick mans own remarks. Jesus certainly said nothing to give that belief credibility. However, the words indicated above by the bracketed bold type are couched in authorial narration, which would imply that the inspired writer of the book of John also believed the superstition. Does the Bible, in this instance, give credence to an outlandish notion, thereby casting suspicion on its inspiration?. In the first place, granted, the idea of God sending an angel to stir the water of a pool, at which point the water is invested with miraculous healing properties, is a nonsensical notion that would be uncharacteristic of the God of ...

How Western notions of the Buddha have come to misrepresent his teachings and the traditional goals of Buddhist practice This book tells the story of the Scientific Buddha, born in Europe in the 1800s but commonly confused with the Buddha born in India 2,500 years ago. The Scientific Buddha was sent into battle against Christian missionaries, who were proclaiming across Asia that Buddhism was a form of superstition. He proved the missionaries wrong, teaching a dharma that was in harmony with modern science. And his influence continues. Today his teaching of mindfulness is heralded as the cure for all manner of maladies, from depression to high blood pressure.In this potent critique, a well-known chronicler of the Wests encounter with Buddhism demonstrates how the Scientific Buddhas teachings deviate in crucial ways from those of the far older Buddha of ancient India. Donald Lopez shows that the Western focus on the Scientific Buddha threatens to bleach Buddhism of
In the wild slow lorises are preyed on by large snakes, hawk-eagles, and orangutans (who are evidently not quite as vegetarian as they are made out to be). Predictably, the hugely expanding human population of Southeast Asia constitutes the most serious threat to the various species of slow loris. Many of the little creatures are captured for the pet trade. Since slow loris bites are painful, hunters cut out captured animals teeth-an operation which is frequently fatal and, if successful, leaves them defenseless and lacking their principle means of cleaning themselves and interacting with other lorises (since grooming is a part of bonding).. Not only are slow lorises threatened by the pet trade. Local superstition attributes magical protection powers to the slow loris, an so their bodies are burned or cut up for various spells, potions, and nostrums (evidently the protective magic does nothing for the slow lorises themselves). David Adam, detailed some of the consequences of magical myths about ...

The Authoritarian Personality_ involved a series of studies sponsored by the American Jewish Committee which were supposed to define a certain personality type which would be easily taken up with antidemocratic propaganda, in light of the tragedy and disaster that was the Third Reich. Scales were developed to assess Antisemitism, Political-Economic Conservativism (which amounted to support for laissez-faire capitalism), and Authoritarianism (the F (for Fascist) scale). Both the Antisemitism scale and the Political-Economic Conservativism scale involved predictable statements in which the subjects had to state their level of agreement with in order to achieve a score. The F scale, involved a series of statements which were designed to measure conventionalism, authoritarian submission, authoritarian aggression, anti-intraception (i.e. Opposition to the subjective, the imaginative, and the tender-minded.), superstition and stereotypy, power and toughness, destructiveness and cynicism, ...

Highlights from the news file for Friday, Nov. 24. ---. TRUDEAU MAKES RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL APOLOGY TO FORMER NEWFOUNDLAND STUDENTS: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made an apology on behalf of the federal government for abuse and cultural losses at residential schools in Newfoundland and Labrador. Trudeau told former students in Goose Bay on Friday that the gesture is part of recognizing hard truths Canada must confront as a society.

Soldiers fired on protesters carrying olive branches and seeking to break the militarys siege of a rebellious town in Syria on Friday, killing at least 16 people, as thousands took to the streets in what organizers proclaimed a Friday of Rage against the governments crackdown on a six-week uprising, witnesses and activists said.. The bloodshed in the besieged town, Daraa, was the worst episode on another violent Friday. At least 40 people were killed across the country, repeating a cycle that has become a fixture of the most serious challenge to the Assad familys four decades of dictatorial rule. For weeks, demonstrators have poured into the streets after noon prayers, only to face the determination of the government to disperse them, often with live ammunition.. But the cries of grief in Daraa and angry chants in dozens of towns and cities on Friday seemed to signal a new dynamic in the uprising. As much as calls for freedom and an end to President Bashar al-Assads rule, the protest ...
