A study in which the rat social discrimination test was refined is described. This test measures social memory by using, in general, juvenile rats as stimulus animals. Rats are offered a first juvenile to investigate (learning trial), and after a specified interval, the rats are offered the same rat and a second juvenile rat to investigate again (retrieval trial). When the rats sniff the second juvenile in the retrieval trial more than the first, social memory for the first juvenile is said to be present. This test is mainly based on scents from the juvenile. Attempts were made to refine the test to reduce the number of animals used, to enhance the scope of the test, and to improve its validity. Firstly, the stimulus animals were replaced by the scent of juveniles, in the form of cups filled with sawdust taken from cages of juvenile rats. Similar results to those in the original test were obtained when using these scents. Furthermore, male and female scents were tested, and showed the same ...

article{96f15cd2-b0ce-47da-ad2d-d5235b1cec20, abstract = {Intersectionality theory can contribute to epidemiology and public health by furthering understanding of power dynamics driving production of health disparities, and increasing knowledge about heterogeneities within, and overlap between, social categories. Drawing on McCall, we relate the first of these potential contributions to categorical intersectionality and the second to anti-categorical intersectionality. Both approaches are used in study of risk of ischemic heart disease (IHD), based on register data on 3.6 million adults residing in Sweden by 2010, followed for three years. Categorical intersectionality is here coupled with between-group differences in average risk calculation, as we use intersectional categorizations while estimating odds ratios through logistic regressions. The anti-categorical approach is operationalized through measurement of discriminatory accuracy (DA), i.e., capacity to accurately categorize individuals ...
In defining activism, I struggled with the enticing alternative choice that activism would be restricted to left-wing activism whereas ring-wing activists would be termed militant right-wingers. This would be consistent with most of mediascape usage of the term activism, including the term activist judge. In the mainstream media, the term activist has a negative connotation and is usually reserved for left-wing activists. Right-wing activism is downplayed or is termed extremism rather than activism. The implication is that it is an extreme of legitimate aspirations whereas activism, like radicalism and anarchism, are incorrectly equated with chaos and destruction. Most activists are left-wing activists because present social structures are more in line with right-wing ideology and because ring-wingers are more easily controlled by fear and can more easily be made to fight other groups rather than the power structure. Fear and perceived danger cause one to want to be protected and this often ...
Black nurses throughout Miami-Dade County have declared a public health crisis here. And they say the demographic most at risk from gun violence are young African-American teenagers.
In addition to these health risks, overweight children tend to go through puberty earlier. There are also social consequences of being an overweight child which can lead to low self-esteem and a decreased quality of life. Overweight children and adolescents are often targets of early social discrimination. Some research indicates that the psychological stress of social labeling can cause low self-esteem which, in turn, can effect academic and social functioning which may continue into adulthood.. ...

Womens formal rights to education and employment have been restored, and in some areas women are once again participating in public life. They accounted for about 16 percent of the candidates in the 2010 parliamentary elections, and roughly 41 percent of registered voters were women; 69 female parliamentarians were elected. There were two women among the 41 candidates for the 2009 presidential election, but on the whole female participation was limited by threats, harassment, and social restrictions on traveling alone and appearing in public. Another major setback to womens rights came with the passage in 2009 of legislation that derogated many constitutional rights for women belonging to the Shiite Muslim minority, leaving questions of inheritance, marriage, and personal freedoms to be determined by conservative Shiite religious authorities. Social discrimination and domestic violence remain pervasive, with domestic violence often going unreported because of social acceptance of the practice. ...
In the HAART era, HIV infected children can live longer and will grow up to become teenagers. However, some may develop psychosocial problems because they have lost family members, experienced poverty, social discrimination etc. Being a normal teenager is tough and is the most complex period of his/her life. This is the period when most teenagers will find their identity and reasons for living. Therefore it is believed that interventions may help HIV-infected teenagers better deal with life. For this study, logotherapy, a therapy that will help a person to discover his/her purpose in life, live meaningful life, and attain self-esteem was used. The success of the intervention was evaluated by using The Purpose in Life Test ...

Know thyself. As indicated, self-awareness is the first step required to facilitate use of an intersectional practice lens. Carroll (2009) noted that awareness has four components: (a) awareness of self and ones own personal values and beliefs; (b) awareness of others and their multiple identities; (c) awareness of systemic issues such as privilege; and (d) awareness of the implications that professional decisions have on students today, tomorrow, and in the future. In terms of intersectionality, school psychologists should develop awareness of their own intersecting identities and how these identities may have privileged or oppressed them in their personal and professional lives. This is important because school psychologists who are not aware of their own intersecting identities and how those identities shape how they experience the world may have difficulty understanding how diverse students identities can influence their educational and social experiences and outcomes. One activity that ...
From Fray Bernardino de Sahagún, Florentine Codex, Book 12, Chapter 35 (Mexica). Here it is told how once again the Mexicas took captives--according to the count of the Spaniards, there were fifty-three, as well as many Tlaxcalans and people of Tetzcoco, Chalco, and Xochimilco--and how they sacrificed them before their former gods.. At this point [after a long siege of Tenochtitán], the Mexica warriors threw themselves [into the open] and chased [the Spaniards]; they ambushed them from the passageways, and when the Spaniards saw it [they believed that the Mexicas] seemed drunk. [The Mexicas] then took captives. Many Tlaxcalans, and people of Acolhuacan, Chalco, Xochimilco, etc., were taken. A great many were captured and killed. They forced the Spaniards and all the others to go right into the water.. And the road became very slippery; one could no longer walk on it, but would slip and slide. And the captives were dragged along the trails.. [The chapter then mentions how the Mexicas and their ...

That was when the whites were heap big Massa and black women were poor, defense slave women who they could order about. These are probably poor, uneducated white trash scum who are broke and feeling powerless in the world. They can stand the fact that even some black people are educated, have careers and are above them in status. They can no longer whip or push blacks around any longer to feel superior. So they try to humiliate and make a professional black person that is far above them feel inferior. Now I am not saying that an upper-class educated, well off white couple cant be racist either but they would handle their wishes in the handling of their child with more decorum. A more elitist husband would have arranged for his wife to have their baby in the hospital to ensure everything went well then that day or night whisked his wife and child home or to a private facility with hired private nurses of his choosing to take care of his baby and wife around the clock. They wouldnt have went to ...

Activism is similar to advocacy but where it differs is really the heart of activism. Activism usually involves more action that is direct in addressing issues, in a community… for example. Activism is often done by people from within the effected community whereas advocacy is done both by people from within and without the effected communities. Activism can be seen as one isolated action( a protest for example), a lifestyle choice (riding a bike) or a commitment (an organization or coalition). (MORE) ...

Reconnecting with Social Activism: Womens Studies as an Intellectual Endeavor Reconnecting with Social Activism: Womens Studies as an Intellectual Endeavor. The development of womens studies programs, and the need to reorient those programs toward activism, is the focus of Ellen Messer-Davidows book, Disciplining Feminism: From Social Activism to Academic Discourse. Messer-Davidow, a professor of English, centers her argument around a key question about the development of the field of womens studies in institutions: "how did it happen that a bold venture launched thirty years ago to transform academic and social institutions was itself transformed by them?" (p. 1). Her position is that womens studies has become a part of the institutional system, largely engaged in intellectual scholarship too removed from its activist components. The point of her book, she writes in her introduction, is to determine "what deflected our academic initiatives and speculate on how we might redirect them now" ...

Customizable programs to help your clients and their employees become more educated, aware and involved in making decisions that lead to healthier choices and behaviors.
Along with that and others advice that you find an interesting lab and people that are good to work with first and foremost, make sure that the grad school you choose has a flexible program, wherein you can rotate in a variety of different labs and easily change programs if the course of study you land in steers you that way. When you interview for grad schools (and when choosing where to apply even) you can ask them about it. But dont just ask them if its possible, ask them what it entails and whether anyone has done it recently (so you can then seek them out). Find out about core courses -- my gradschool required both core courses and electives. You spent the first year taking the core courses reqd for your program and the second year taking electives. Then, if you had decided in that first year to change programs, the first year counted as electives, so you wouldnt be behind. I did not appreciate this at the time ...

While living though the current Coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis I am struck by the connections between the AIDS crisis (which is also not over) and this health crisis. These connections are not often being made or remembered in the commentaries and analysis I have seen. At the same time there are also major differences between these two different health crises including mode of transmission, impact on peoples bodies and health and to some extent who is most affected. I was actively involved in AIDS organizing and activism in the 1980s and 1990s and have also been involved in documenting some of these histories. In this initial sketch I try to draw out some of what can be learned from the history of AIDS organizing and activism for the current pandemic. I know this is partial and limited but I feel an urgency to get it out there. Please feel free to add to it or critique it. It is intended to get discussion going.. Referring to AIDS organizing and activism I refer firstly (but not only) to the ...
After three infusions of Kadcyla (T-DM1), which I d used for 8 months in 2013 for the first time, I went to have a CT scan to see if the 2nd use of it is still working or not. " How have you been?" A dreadlocked black nurse I have known since 2010 was exceptionally friendly today and started talking about his family and his hometown in Indiana maybe because it was already after 5pm and the peak of his work was over. He said after Kaiser remodeled the facility this year, the hospital bought a new CT machine so now they can exam more people cutting the waiting time of the exam. It was nice, but Id rather hear the result promptly-I told him. Then he said if he uses the "STAT " stamp, a patient can receive the result quickly.. " Can you do that for me?" I asked him ...

Intersectionality is a framework for conceptualizing peoples overlapping identities and experiences in order to understand the complexity of the prejudices they face. This theoretical framework, originally coined as a legal term by law professor Kimberlé Crenshaw, hoped to make space in our courts for discrimination against Black women to be recognized when it could not fit
By Robert Lamberts, M.D.. When I get discouraged about the state of the healthcare system, I but need to look in one place to see that things could be worse: the mental health system. While there remains hope that there will somehow be reform and things will get better in the arena in which I work, it is very difficult for me to see anything getting better for the Psychiatrists.. One of my staff recently had a family member have a fairly major "breakdown." I was caring for this person, mainly due to the fact that there are not close to being enough psychiatrists available to help. I have found that as a primary care doctor, I have had to become an "amateur psychiatrist" (as I call it) and diagnose and treat people whenever possible. Some of this is due to the stigma of people going to psychiatrists, but most of it is simply due to their unavailability. This was the case with this family member, and I did my best to address the needs medically, and even offered the best counselling I ...
In her HIV activism and education work, Duncan was inspired by the life and activism work of a young New York woman called Alison Gertz, who went public about her HIV status in 1989. There was then a movie, called Something to Live For, based on her life. Gertz died of AIDS-related causes in 1992. Duncan started doing public speaking engagements for the Love Heals-The Alison Gertz Foundation for AIDS Education about a year ago.. In 2004, Duncan started working at Planned Parenthood in Nassau County, as a peer educator. "If they close them down," she adds, speaking of Planned Parenthood clinics currently in danger of being defunded, "I dont know where all these women are going to go.". In 1998, when she started public speaking, she would share her HIV story with high school students. Nowadays, she focuses on encouraging people to get tested and become aware of HIV. And she helps spread the word about HIV awareness, prevention and education to high school and college students, and even to women ...

The Co-operative Action Networks inception came from the simple belief that we cant wait until 2020 to help our members and supporters achieve the change in our communities that is so desperately needed.. Cooperative activists, Labour and Co-op councillors and Co-op councils are already showing the difference our values make when we are in office. In local government across the nation co-operative solutions are delivering real change. Plymouth with its growing co-operative sector, mutual energy company, co-operative school meal provision and mutual social care shows what can be done when co-operative values are hardened and mainstreamed. Labour and Co-operative councils in Milton Keynes, Oldham, Brighton, Lambeth and Edinburgh are all pioneering new mutual solutions, not just in town halls but in our communities. There is fire in the belly of co-operative activists and the Co-operative Action Network will help share those skills and experiences with new co-operators.. Fighting for co-operative ...
