2. Pneumonia (Focal) is defined as clinical pneumonia in the absence of wheeze, which is closely aligned with the pneumonia definition used in the Australian Breathe Easy studies.. Because of a technical issue in providing cough audio files to adjudicators for review, results for croup are now expected in November. Tony Keating, CEO and Managing Director of ResApp said, "The results for lower respiratory tract disease, asthma/reactive airways disease (for children over 2 years of age) and primary upper respiratory tract disease demonstrate that our algorithms effectively aid clinicians in making important clinical diagnostic decisions. Asthma, in particular, is the most common chronic lower respiratory tract disease in childhood throughout the world. Our diagnoses are especially useful in settings such as telehealth, where a stethoscope and additional diagnostic tests such as a chest x-ray or blood tests are not available. We plan to pursue FDA submissions for these three diseases in parallel to ...
Members of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Cystic Fibrosis (ACPCF) worked with National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) on the content of the new guideline, which was published in October.. Nuala Harnett, a clinical specialist physiotherapist at Great Norths Childrens Hospital and ACPCF chair, told Frontline: We were involved throughout the development of this guideline, having two representatives on the working party and also the opportunity to comment on the draft document during the consultation period.. In terms of physiotherapy, the guideline gives recommendations for airway clearance, mucolytic therapy and exercise.. It also states that. ...
Members of underserved racial/ethnic minority groups who participate more actively in the treatment process have almost three times the odds of staying in treatment and following up with appointments compared to standard treatment. Improving patient-clinician communication may therefore improve treatment engagement, from starting and participating in treatment actively to maintaining treatment for the successful resolution of symptoms and improvements in quality of life. Interventions that enhance communication behaviors by asking patients about their cultural views, using open-ended questions, establishing rapport, and using patient terms can increase patient participation and satisfaction. Interventions that expose clinicians to cultural content by asking patients about preferences for treatment, barriers to accessing services, the role of support from family or friends, and that encourage information exchange also improve treatment engagement. The goal of this study is to develop a ...

That definition understates the complexity of possible chromosomal variations and conflates a cultural construction - "gender" - with chromosomal sex determination in ways that dont jibe with modern understanding. "Gender" is not necessarily "established by the individuals chromosomes." According to the World Health Organization, "Gender, typically described in terms of masculinity and femininity, is a social construction that varies across different cultures and over time. There are a number of cultures, for example, in which greater gender diversity exists and sex and gender are not always neatly divided along binary lines such as male and female or homosexual and heterosexual." One may or may not agree with that assessment of gender vs. sex, culture vs. science, but the WHO analysis points to the fact that these questions are not nearly so cut and dried as the binary framework suggested in Rep. Riddles bill. At a minimum, it would set the stage for years of litigation as every ...

The various norms and values of aging that have been created by humans in the course of history have been largely ignored by gerontologists, who are thought to be more interested in the objective laws that govern science than in the subjective experiences that contribute to the aging process. This thought-provoking study belongs to the genre known as humanistic gerontology and it explores the attitudes toward aging as expressed by society. Outlining the cultural construction of old age and the social and psychological ramifications that are often imposed on the aged by external influences, it focuses on the status and treatment of old age and presents a portrait of aging in a cultural and historical perspective illuminated by diverse national literatures. Unlike any other book on the subject, this volume is an attempt to add to the body of knowledge that helps illustrate, explain, and bridge the dichotomy that still exists between the scientist and the humanist in the field of aging. The various ...
Whats challenging and fascinating, however, is exploring the dissonance between my intellectual distrust of cultural constructions of gender and my undeniable attachment to certain preconceived notions of raising a girl and having a son. As research for the show (and for parenting in general) Ive been reading Chasing Rainbows: Exploring Gender Fluid Parenting Practices edited by Fiona Joy Green and May Friedman. Its a collection of essays both personal and academic with a variety of perspectives on queer feminist parenting and how to challenge gender norms and foster gender-creativity in children. Its brilliant, and while its a bit late for me, as a cis woman hopelessly attached to her Bettie Page hair, with an extensive childhood CV of princess costumes, cheerleading camps, and ballet lessons, I hope to give my little foetus more encouragement to be playful and fluid in their performance of gender.. Im already running into problems.. The April 30th audience gets to vote on the babys ...
Introduction. Gender as a social and cultural construction has an impact on physiotherapist and patient beliefs, understanding, and behaviour and could affect physiotherapy encounters. Gender studies in early rehabilitation are scarce. The aim of this thesis was to study gender during different parts of the rehabilitation process for primary health care patients with neck and back pain.. Method. The analyses are based on data from three different samples. One sample is composed of physiotherapists and two samples consist of patients consulting primary health care providers because of neck and back pain. All data were gathered from primary health care provided in Västerbotten County.. Baseline data on 73 physiotherapists and 586 of their patients with neck and back pain were collected by questionnaire during three consecutive days in 2006. Patient data included affected pain site and treatment procedures used by the physiotherapist (Study I). Differences in treatment procedures used by female ...
for all life that is not merely value based. This is intrinsically related to our conceptual habits of attempting to significantly isolate experiences within objective, value-based psychological, epistemological, historical and cultural constructions. Value must be judged in a hierarchy of things and according to Nagarjuna, things do not exist (or are empty) because they are not dissociative of our experience. A thing is of conventional reality - only existing in our fabricated delusion, isolated in language and in thought - as no thing truly exists independent of a conditional flux. The idea of the emptiness of things, and a dismissal of anthropomorphic value classification, can be severely misinterpreted, positing, for instance, that humans are part of the greater whole of nature and thus their actions are natural. In coalescence with the emptiness of reality, this may also perpetuate an exploitative ethos that disrupts and destroys the global climate, ecosystems, and ...
Approaching disability as a cultural construction rather than a medical pathology, this book studies the impact of disability and concepts of disability on composers, performers, and listeners with disabilities, as well as on discourse about music and works of music themselves. For composers with disabilities--like Beethoven, Delius, and Schumann--awareness of the disability sharply inflects critical reception.
This volume brings together the latest approaches in bioarchaeology in the study of sex and gender. Archaeologists have long used skeletal remains to identify gender. Contemporary bioarchaeologists, however, have begun to challenge the theoretical and methodological basis for sex assignment from the skeleton. Simultaneously, they have started to consider the cultural construction of the gendered body and gender roles, recognizing the body as uniquely fashioned from the interaction of biological, social, and environmental factors. As the contributors to this volume reveal, combining skeletal data with contextual information can provide a richer understanding of life in the past.. ...
This course addresses the anthropological study of emotion and self. It covers the different theoretical approaches to emotion, self and subjectivity. The broad questions addressed revolve around the cultural construction of emotion and self, and the entanglement of psychodynamic processes and power in the formation of the subject. The topics covered include anger and fear, grief and compassion, personhood, technologies of self and subjectification, identification and melancholia.. ...
Most childhood respiratory diseases have a high morbidity and/or mortality and healthcare needs to become more focused on these diseases. It is concerning that there are huge differences between European countries. The European Union should move to address these differences and should also pay attention to the increasing burden of respiratory disease caused by prematurity across all countries. See the entire Paediatric respiratory diseases Chapter ...
The burden of childhood respiratory diseases is an important public health problem. Asthma is the most common childhood chronic disease and numerous studies have documented its rise in worldwide prevalence over the past several decades. Moreover, normal pulmonary function development during childhood is important for reaching maximum attainable adult lung function. While the etiology of childhood asthma and development of normal pulmonary function development are complex, a growing body of evidence shows that a variety of environmental exposures are important determinants of childhood airway diseases and normal development. A greater understanding of the biological mechanisms influencing childhood asthma and the natural course of pulmonary function development is critical to minimizing the adverse effects of environmental exposures. We investigated pathophysiologic mechanisms using advances in non-invasive technologies including exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) and high resolution computed tomography ...

Background: Prenatal exposure to air pollution has been associated with childhood respiratory disease and other adverse outcomes. Epigenetics is a suggested link between exposures and health outcomes.. Objectives: We aimed to investigate associations between prenatal exposure to particulate matter (PM) with diameter. Methods: We meta-analyzed associations between exposure to PM10 (n=1,949) and PM2.5 (n=1,551) at maternal home addresses during pregnancy and newborn DNA methylation assessed by Illumina Infinium HumanMethylation450K BeadChip in nine European and American studies, with replication in 688 independent newborns and look-up analyses in 2,118 older children. We used two approaches, one focusing on single cytosine-phosphate-guanine (CpG) sites and another on differentially methylated regions (DMRs). We also related PM exposures to blood mRNA expression.. Results: Six CpGs were significantly associated [false discovery rate (FDR). Conclusions: Several differentially methylated CpGs and ...
Over the last twenty years there has emerged a body of work that questions the assumptions that lie beneath psychiatric knowledge and practice. This work, appearing as academic papers, magazine articles, books, and chapters in books, hasnt been written by academics, sociologists or cultural theorists. It has emerged from the pens and practice of a group of British psychiatrists.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has recommended tighter blood sugar control for patients with diabetes, to minimise the risk of long term vascular complications.. An updated NICE guideline on diagnosing and managing type 1 diabetes in adults recommends a target HbA1c level of 48 mmol/mol (6.5%) or less1: this is lower than the clinical guideline on type 1 diabetes published in 2014, which recommended an HbA1c target of less than 7.5% for prevention of microvascular disease and 6.5% or less in patients at increased risk of arterial disease.2. A target HbA1c target level of 48 mmol/mol (6.5%) or lower is also recommended in children and young people with type 1 or 2 diabetes to minimise the risk of … ...
Martin Kittel has made important comments in his rapid response to the publication of new NICE guidelines on hypertension in adults (Nov 2). He points out that the new guidelines omit any comment on the time of day of administration of medication for hypertension, despite the publication from the Hygia trial this year by Hermida and colleagues (1) which provides strong evidence from a well conducted trial, with a mean follow up period of 6.4 years, that evening administration results in better outcomes. In 2017 a meta-analysis by Wang and colleagues (2) had reviewed 25229 studies of hypertension management, concluding that evening dosing contrasted with morning, was more effective and did restore dipping and decrease urinary albumin in those few studies that made that comparison. The new guidelines support the use of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (AMBP) and favour this over domiciliary self-measurement, but without comment on the merits of considering "dipping" of nocturnal blood ...
Dear Sir, We would like to draw your attention to an apparent inconsistency in two related guidelines published by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), in response to your recent review article of the NICE guideline on antibiotics for early onset neonatal sepsis (EONS) [1]. Maternal prolonged rupture of membranes (PROM) before delivery is a commonly used risk-factor to suspect EONS. The duration of rupture of membranes, for it to be termed "prolonged", is controversial. Most published studies have chosen "candidate" cut-off times from 12 - 24 hours, with no "ideal" study looking at the relationship between duration of membrane rupture and subsequent neonatal infection. NICE have recently published clinical guidelines (CG149) for the management of newborn infants with EONS [2]. While this guideline clearly defines PROM for preterm infants as that lasting for greater than 18 hours, they have not done so for term infants. Instead, they have referred clinicians to the ...
As two of the developers of the recently updated National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guideline on feverish illness in children,1 we welcome the paper by De and colleagues2 In their study, the authors investigated the potential of using the white blood count (WBC) as a screening tool in the triage of children with feverish illness.. Paediatricians and other clinicians have struggled for years to find ways of identifying the handful of children with serious illnesses among the thousands who present with fever. It has often been the case that accurate histories, careful examination and clinical acumen are not enough and children with serious illnesses are missed while others with self-limiting viral illnesses are unnecessarily admitted to hospital. In an attempt to reliably identify children with serious illness, we are tempted to use a range of investigations. These include urinalysis, chest X-rays, acute phase reactants and the WBC. During the production of the NICE feverish ...

Just in time for the holidays (Halloween totally counts as a holiday), the Teaching Company (a/k/a "The Great Courses) is releasing a new course I recorded - Mysteries of Modern Physics: Time. For those of you who arent familiar with the format (and my previous course, Dark Matter and Dark Energy), this is a set of 24 lectures, each half an hour each, modeled on an undergraduate college course for non-scientists. Note that both are hugely discounted at the moment, by 70% off the ordinary price, which isnt always the case. Unlike the previous course, this new one is available in an audio-only format as well as on video. But in the last few years they have upgraded their graphics and animation considerably, so the video version might be worth a look. Heres the teaser:. ...

Medical anthropology is founded on an epistemological openness to alternative understandings of the body, illness, disease, and healing. It explores how health is at once a biological, social, and historical fact. Anthropology assumes a body that is both biologically given as well as culturally invented and historically situated so that we can even speak of local biologies. This course introduces methods of studying and understanding how the body, health, and healing are shaped by historical processes, political struggles and cultural meanings as well as the knowledge and power of expanding global biomedicine and biotechnologies. In offering a comparative perspective on human afflictions, suffering and healing in societies, we will explore the cultural and historical specificity of what appear to be biological givens, and do so by drawing from a variety of anthropological questions, theoretical approaches, and research methods. The course introduces both the specificity of local medical ...

Medical anthropology is playing an increasingly important role in public health. This course builds on basic concepts introduced in ANTH 2504 with an emphasis on the contributions of medical anthropological theories and concepts towards an understanding of complex health-related behavior. This course examines why public health policies and interventions are more likely to be effective if the beliefs and behavior of people are understood and taken into account. Some examples of particular health problems are examined, such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, malaria and other communicable and non-communicable diseases to show how an anthropological approach can contribute to both a better understanding of health and illness and to more culturally appropriate public health measures. ...
In Chapter 4, "Treating the Family", you focus on how the West Clinic team assumptions of normative family roles relate to explanatory models behind treatment decisions. Can you expand on how other normative assumptions contributed to treatment decisions?. M.B.: I think that a lot of the decisions about restoring functioning were motivated by ideas about what defines success in adolescence, and so a lot of the decisions were oriented toward, getting kids into college. There was a lot of talk about getting [them] into college and getting them back into their high-achieving tracks. Of course, sometimes I think the clinicians helped families and patients get off that track, and that was also part of what they did. But I think sometimes they were implicitly motivated by middle class values about education and achievement and success. In Chapter 5, you begin with a quote by George Beard about American nervousness "Without civilization there can be no nervousness…". In what ways does this quote ...

Deadline for Abstracts: July 15th, 2012. People across the globe are navigating stratified and pluralistic health care landscapes, shaped by neoliberal policies and unequal access to medical care. The summer school explores the idea that different population groups such as ethnic minorities, the elderly, people with chronic diseases, the unemployed, and unauthorized migrants may face - to some extent - similar struggles: the experiences of living with insecurity and uncertainty, of being excluded or discriminated against in the health care system, and having difficulties accessing the treatments they consider most effective, including biomedical care and other forms of medicine and healing.. We invite participants to address national and local models of health care provision across the globe and to identify common developments and issues. Presentations should pay close attention to the growing stratification of health care systems and the many facets of inequality in different regions and ...
In this short essay, I wish to briefly discuss smoking, polypharmacy, the human biome and multispecies relations, and biomedicalization as a means of stretching the common ways we think about comorbidity. My intent is to expand our thinking about comorbidity and multimorbidity beyond the individual as a unit of analysis, to reframe comorbidity in relation to trajectories of risk, and to address comorbid states of our own making when the treatment of one health problem results in the experience of additional health problems. I do so as a corrective to what I see as an overly narrow focus on comorbidity as co-occurring illnesses within a single individual, and as a complement to critical medical anthropological assessments of synergistic comorbid conditions (syndemics) occurring in structurally vulnerable populations living in environments of risk exposed to macro and micro pathogenic agents.. If you are interested in augmenting current issue article pages with an author interview or other ...

Daniel Moerman presents an innovative and enlightening discussion of human reaction to the meaning of medical treatment. Traditionally, the effectiveness of medical treatments is attributed to specific elements, such as drugs or surgical procedures, but many things happen in medicine which simply cannot be accounted for in this way. The same drug can work differently when presented in different colours; drugs with widely advertised names can work better than the same drug without the name; inert drugs (placebos, dummies) often have dramatic effects on people (the placebo effect); and effects can vary hugely among different European countries where the same medical condition is understood differently, or has different meanings. This is true for surgery as well as for internal medicine. This lively 2002 book reviews and analyses these matters in lucid, straightforward prose, guiding the reader through a very complex body of literature, leaving nothing unexplained but avoiding any ...

Dr. Bludaus research program centers on the professional identity of healthcare workers, primarily nurses. The project that served as the basis of her dissertation was an examination of global healthcare migration through the recruitment and migration of Czech nurses; Saudi Arabia is their primary destination site. She uses a critical and applied approach to medical anthropology in order to examine the Czech and Saudi national healthcare systems and policies in relation to individual motivations for migration. A key element is the position of healthcare labor recruiters as a node in the migration chain. A large part of her research consisted of an organizational analysis of a Czech recruitment firm in which she was embedded for almost a year. Most recently, Dr. Bludau, along with colleagues in the Department of Nursing, have completed an interdisciplinary project analyzing nursing education programs to determine crucial elements of socialization and professional identity development. This pilot ...

Autism or autism spectrum conditions describe several presentations characterised by core issues with social affect and stereotyped or repetitive actions. Diagnosis is made by observation and analysis of developmental history. These are heterogeneous conditions which can carry various co-morbidities and whilst described as life-long are affected by age and maturation. Autism means different things to different people. To some it means a need for life-long support. To others it is part of the varied tapestry of humanity. To all it means a need to foster a welcoming society with appropriate support and opportunities ...

Starting in the late 1980s, the New Documentary Movement in China established a new way of looking at the world from the grass-roots up; a way of clearly understanding what drives different classes to survive and what feelings they have. They see history as "wide open" and "clear", promising that everyone has the possibility to be recorded in history. They create history. -- From the introduction of Lu Xinyus book, Documentary China -- the New Documentary Movement in Contemporary China.. From the late 1980s, Chinese documentaries began to evolve from official, grand narratives to more personal films about ordinary people. The new films were made by young filmmakers at television stations around the country. The focus of their works turned to the present moment of Chinese society. This change of orientation was soon reflected on CCTV, Chinas national broadcaster. The documentary Oriental Horizon was launched in 1993, and "telling common peoples own stories" became the raison detre of the ...
A peculiar characteristic of the current epidemic across all the three most affected countries was the presentation of culture as a barrier to the effective management of Ebola. This, in the most part, can be attributed to a lack of understanding and empathy with the cultural constructions of the societies concerned. Participating in the death and decent send-off of their loved ones is an important obligation of the surviving family members and a right of the departed. It is quite possible to involve the families of victims in some way by incorporating them into the safe burial protocols. Similarly, there exists already in many cultures within the region, cultural pathways to deal with certain categories of abnormal deaths. For example death by lightning, death by drowning and suicide already fall into special categories in some cultures. Such deaths are therefore exempted from normal rituals. The challenge then will be to have Ebola classified in a similar category within this cultural idiom. ...
Research presented at the Anesthesiology 2012 annual meeting revealed cigarette smoke adversely affects the developing human airway, especially in prematurity. Fetuses and premature babies exposed to cigarette smoke are at greater risk for developing childhood respiratory diseases, such as asthma.. "Due to their highly immature lungs, premature babies often require high levels of additional oxygen in the neonatal intensive care unit, which can put these babies at higher risk for life-long problems with lung diseases," said study author Elizabeth Vogel, M.D., Department of Anesthesiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.. Additional exposure to second-hand smoke in the home often precipitates further respiratory problems and possible return trip(s) to the ICU.. "By examining human fetal airway cells from gestational ages during which rapid airway and lung growth would normally occur, we hope to understand how the developing airway is particularly susceptible to cigarette smoke with the goal of ...
Only it is not the horrible kind, just the kind that makes you feel bad a lot. Someone at the university, in their infinite wisdom decided that I was a good teacher, so I teach not-so-innocent young minds...heee heee heee...(Actually, I really enjoy teaching). I have my own lab full of BONESSSSSSSS. My health has kept me from being Indiana Jonesess, but now I get to be more like Dr. Brennan. I miss archaeology, but enjoy bio-archaeology/biocultural medical anthropology more, and I am able to only dig when I want to or when a need arises instead of a long stretch. I get to help with forensic type stuff too, which is nice. I am still in grad school and probably will be the rest of my life (or that is how it feels). Despite all of that, I am still not fully sure of what I want to be when I grow up.... We have done the normal things like get new cars and move and adopt a new dog. The little people are all taller than me now (and have blue, no bright red hair, changed last night). The tall person is ...
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Chapter 17 203 The moral tone implied in breastfeeding knowledge is rooted in power relations that also affect the identity of mothers. We present our arguments with examples of women living in poverty, since this is a population whose breastfeeding experiences are rarely addressed in the literature. Building from critical concepts developed by French thinkers Pierre Bourdieu and Michel Foucault, we examine closely how issues of power, morality, and identity are embedded in public health promotion of breastfeeding, and how that promotion might be changed to better address womens practices and needs. Motherhood and Ritual Medical anthropology demonstrates that the reproductive behaviors of women are heavily controlled through ritual. Reproductive rituals regulate and impose normative behaviors and often restrictive rules on women who are expected to follow them during pregnancy, birth, and the postnatal periods, constituting what ...
Constantine S. L. Loum is currently working as a Senior Lecturer at Gulu University, Faculty of Medicine, department of Public/Mental Health.

E-Book: Taking a novel approach to the contradictory impulses of violence and care, illness and healing, this book radically shifts the way we think of the interrelations of institutions and experiences in a globalizing world. Living and Dying in the Contemporary World is not just another reader in medical anthropology but a true tour de force-a deep exploration of all that makes life unbearable and yet livable through the labor of ordinary people.

As the leading cause of disability around the world (WHO 2012), depression has become a major public health concern. The global mental health movement has organized to increase access to mental health care within primary care and to protect the human rights of those who experience mental illnesses. Within this movement, the World Health Organization (WHO) MIND Project which operated in the early 2000s aimed to increase services and legal protections for people with mental illness, through collaboration with national governments and with the assertion that through such collaboration, global psychiatric knowledge would trickle down to the general population. Foucault (1978) has argued that in contemporary society, governance takes place through biopolitics as the ???making live??? of populations through construction of health problems as simultaneously political and economic ones. Rose (2007) posited that the outcome of living in such a society is the creation of individual-level biological citizenship,

Id like to remind you about an important documentary project helmed by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein (who produced the documentary The Business of Being Born) thats inspired by the book Sweetening the Pill by Holly Grigg-Spall.. This documentary project aims to highlight the potential dangers of hormone birth control. I normally dont like to voice my opinions on this topic since I believe birth control is a personal issue and everyone should feel free to select whats right for her or him when it comes to family planning.. However, I do believe strongly in "informed consent". And I dont believe many health care providers who dispense hormone birth control are giving their patients fully informed consent. Thats because theyre glossing over the potentially dangerous physical complications that can arise from hormone BC and, many times, altogether skipping the potential emotional side effects, such as sudden anger, depression and extreme mood swings (which I personally experienced when I tried ...
role of serum uric acid on the cardiovascular system with respect to hypertension, stroke, renal failure, heart failure and coronary heart disease are discussed. Being able to identify patients with coronary artery disease early will help lower hospital costs and decrease mortality and morbidity. Stress testing has emerged as the sole non-invasive method for risk stratifying patients. Apart from highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of various stress testing modalities, the chapter reviews which patients should undergo stress testing based on appropriateness criteria; managed separately based on their risk factors and identifying those who may be at increased risk of acute myocardial infarction or death. The final chapter of this section discusses the role of exercise electrocardiography in patients with stable chest pain. A UK National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guideline on the diagnosis of discomfort of suspected cardiac origin published in 2010 proposes that ...

August 17, 2013 at 12:26 pm / BBC documentaries, Evolution, Human Nature, Molecular Nature, Video. Harvest of the Seasons is the second episode of a thirteen-part documentary series called The Ascent of Man written and presented by Jacob Bronowski. The series reached wide audiences for Bronowskis highly intellectual but simple and convincing analysis. Much of his long monologues were unscripted and were a source of inspiration for creating a template for Carl Sagans hugely sucessful Cosmos series. The motto used by Bronowski "A personal view" became "A personal voyage" in Sagans. The episode provides an […]. Continue reading » ...

Remember the Bayes-theorem methodology: I will assume the documentary hypothesis is correct and then see how well it explains the actual occurrences of these words. If it does easily and naturally, it will weigh in favor of the DH being correct. If it appears forced, with ad hoc justifications and explanations, then it will not weigh in favor of the DH being correct. Similarly, for the traditional explanations, I will assume that TMS is correct and then see how well it explains the actual occurrences of these words.

1 year ago. (Character Limit here I come. The TL;DR is Im salty because of how unrepresentative the documentary is.) Im not a fan of this specific idea. It reaches no ground millennials hold. As a millennial (Im 18), when they talk about "getting reconnected with society" all I think is how much you cut yourself off. Blaine and Barbara are the only two people doing this. All their other friends still have their phones and laptops and etc. So you are disconnecting yourself from all these people who use the most current medium to interact, and calling it a connection? The entire world, or even just the world around an individual wont just stop so one person can see what its like. They cut themselves off from everyone, and call it connecting. If youre trying to connect to people, and you cut your power, it is going to be challenging. No shit, right? So if the idea is to connect to people, why would you essentially create an extra barrier? If they got 30-50 millennials of varying ages, ...
