Cellular Organelle Isolation on fixed cell? - posted in General Lab Techniques: Hi, Due to the Biosafety requirement of my lab, I cannot bring my Hela cells out of my lab; however, the refrigerated centrifuge for isolation is in the lab across mine. I was told that unless I fixed my cell, I cannot bring it out. So I have to think of a way to fix and isolate my organelle. I was wondering if I lyse the cells and fixed the organelles, would I still be able to perform isolation? Just curious...

Social isolation is an intensely stressful environment for mice. When animals are stressed, they generally become much more reactive to a variety of negative stimulants, and these reactions or behaviors persist longer than in non-stressed animals. In a paper published May 17 in the journal Cell, scientists present what they believe is one of the mechanisms by which chronic social isolation in mice causes the brain to change in a profound way.
Singapore is one of the most rapidly aging countries in Asia. The proportion of older adults (aged 60 years and over) in the population, currently about 8%, is projected to increase to 19% by 2030. At the same time, the number of elderly households in Singapore is rising rapidly owing to increased prevalence of smaller, nuclear families and the trend of more people remaining single. To design evidence-based policies and programs to enhance social networks and prevent social isolation among seniors and to plan for the health care needs of the elderly in the future, a Social Isolation, Health and Lifestyle Survey (SIHLS) was conducted. The main objectives of the survey was to: develop a longitudinal database on the physical and mental health profile of older adults (aged 60 ); to determine the extent of social isolation among older adults, and changes with time, within and between income groups; understand the interactions among health status, income, social engagement, housing, network support ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Social isolation and outcomes post stroke. AU - Boden-Albala, Bernadette. AU - Litwak, E.. AU - Elkind, M. S V. AU - Rundek, T.. AU - Sacco, R. L.. PY - 2005/6/14. Y1 - 2005/6/14. N2 - Objective: To assess the relationship between social isolation and stroke outcomes in a multiethnic cohort. Methods: As part of the Northern Manhattan Stroke Study, the authors prospectively followed a cohort of patients with stroke for 5 years. Baseline data including social isolation were collected. At follow-up, the authors documented outcome events as defined by the first occurrence of myocardial infarction (MI), stroke recurrence, or death. Cox hazard models were used to calculate the hazard ratio (HR, 95% CI) for prestroke predictors of post stroke outcomes. Results: The authors followed 655 ischemic stroke cases for a mean of 5 years. The cohort was 55% women; 17% white, 27% African American, 54% Hispanic; mean age 69 ± 12 years. There were 265 first outcome events. In univariate analysis, ...

The mesocortical dopaminergic system is involved in the coping response to environmental stimuli. Accordingly, both stressful and pleasurable stimuli can induce an increase in the extracellular concentration of dopamine (DA) in the medial prefrontal cortex of rats. Social isolation (SI), a widely used animal model of depression, is able to induce anhedonia in rats, reducing the consume of sucrose. In our experiments we investigated, by vertical microdialysis, whether SI can modify the changes in DA extracellular concentration induced by anticipation and consumption of food in rats trained to consume their daily meal in two hours. In control, group housed (GH), rats DA extracellular concentration showed a marked increase (+180% over basal values) 80 min before food presentation, reached a maximum during food consumption (+350%), and returned to basal values when food was taken away. In SI rats the food restriction-induced increase in DA output was almost completely abolished with respect to GH ...
Social isolation can begin early in life. During this time of development, a person may become more preoccupied with feelings and thoughts of their individuality that are not easy to share with other individuals. This can result from feelings of shame, guilt, or alienation during childhood experiences.[15] Social isolation can also coincide with developmental disabilities. Individuals with learning impairments may have trouble with social interaction. The difficulties experienced academically can greatly impact the individuals esteem and sense of self-worth. An example would be the need to repeat a year of school. During the early childhood developmental years, the need to fit in and be accepted is paramount.[citation needed] Having a learning deficit can in turn lead to feelings of isolation, that they are somehow different from others.[citation needed]. Substance abuse can also be an element in isolation, whether a cause or a result. This can and many times does coincide with mood related ...
... The European Commission carried out an assessment of the National Action Plans for social inclusion (NAPs/inclusion) that all Member States submitted in July 2003, and adopted a Draft Joint Report on Social Inclusion in the form of a communication to the Council, the European Parliament, the Economic and Social Commmittee and the Committee of Regions [COM(2003) 773 final, of 12 December 2003]. The Statistical Annex to this report was adopted as a working document of the Commission staff [SEC(2003)1425]. Following examination by the Member States and the European Commission in the Social Protection Committee, the Draft Joint Report on Social Inclusion was formally adopted as a Joint Council/Commission text by the Council in March 2004. It was then sent to the European Council of Spring 2004. This is the second round of the EU social inclusion process that was launched in 2001 on the basis of the Open Method of Coordination and the common objectives endorsed by the ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Social exclusion and female mating behavior. T2 - Rejected women show strategic enhancement of short-term mating interest. AU - Sacco, Donald F.. AU - Young, Steven G.. AU - Brown, Christina M.. AU - Bernstein, Michael J.. AU - Hugenberg, Kurt. PY - 2012/12/1. Y1 - 2012/12/1. N2 - Because cost asymmetries in sexual reproduction have historically enabled women to exchange sexual access for other resources, including social resources, we tested the possibility that social exclusion would lead women to display an elevated preference for short-term mating strategies in the service of reaffiliation. In Study 1, women were given false feedback to manipulate social inclusion or exclusion prior to indicating their endorsement of short and long-term mating behaviors. Socially excluded women indicated greater interest in short-term mating and reduced interest in long-term mating. In Study 2, women wrote about a social inclusion, social exclusion, or control experience and then indicated ...
There have been few population studies of hikikomori (that is, prolonged social withdrawal and isolation), and the basic correlating factors of hikikomori are yet to be identified. Therefore, this study aimed to identify the associated basic characteristics and psychiatric factors of hikikomori. Data were obtained from the Survey of Young Peoples Attitudes of 5,000 residents (aged 15-39 years) who were randomly selected from 200 urban and suburban municipalities in Japan in February 2010. The chi-square test and multiple logistic regression were used in the analysis. The data contained 3,262 participants (response rate: 65.4%); 47.7% were men (n = 1,555) and 52.3% were women (n = 1,707). Its prevalence was 1.8% (n = 58), and 41% had been in the hikikomori state for more than 3 years. There were fewer hikikomori people in neighborhoods filled with business and service industries. Significantly more men were in the hikikomori group (65.5%) than in the non-hikikomori group (47.3%). The hikikomori group
To explore how isolation affects high-need adults, we analyzed data from the Commonwealth Fund Survey of High-Need Patients conducted from June to September 2016. We found that high-need adults who are socially isolated (defined as people who report often feeling a lack of companionship, left out, or isolated from others) are more likely to have mental, emotional, and financial issues. They are also less likely to receive timely, good-quality care than high-need adults who do not report feeling alone.. Reviews published in Health Affairs and BMC Public Health of several interventions targeting social isolation have shown that increased access to social supports can improve patient physical and mental health outcomes and lower costs. Providers working with high-need adults should consider the impact of isolation on their patients, and connect those who feel alone to evidence-based support groups or social services.. High-need, isolated adults are more likely to:. ...
As Christmas approaches and news reports highlight increasing loneliness among older people - an innovative health project is working to tackle isolation in South Bristol. The Social Mirror project is being piloted in the Knowle West community to link people aged 65 plus and 18-25 to local activities that could help their health and wellbeing.. Were working with the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Commerce and Manufactures (RSA) as part of a research and action project to improve peoples social inclusion. Were trialing Social Mirror at the William Budd Health Centre over a 12-month period and hope to reach 300 people by the end of March 2014..

When C. elegans are raised in isolation without the stimulation produced by conspecifics, the response to a mechanosensory stimulus (tap) is greatly decreased. However, other behaviors (the reversal response to a heat probe and spontaneous reversals) that use the same interneurons and motor neurons are not altered by isolation, suggesting that this is a response or circuit-specific effect of isolation. We hypothesized that in the absence of conspecific interactions, there was reduced stimulation of the neural circuit underlying the response during development, which led to a weak synapse developing between the mechanosensory neurons and the interneurons. This was supported by the observations that mechanosensory stimulation during L3 reversed the effects of isolation on the response to tap and that there were fewer synaptic vesicles in the sensory neurons and fewer glr-1 receptors on the interneurons.. In addition to having effects on the tap response, isolation led to either a slowing or ...
Limiting direct contact between people and large-scale testing is so far the only efficient measure to curb the outbreak. However, drastic approaches like city lockdowns, travel bans, school and office closures, cannot be in effect indefinitely, as they would result in an economic breakdown. Furthermore, the effects of the long-term isolation on the human behaviour and mental health of the population could be severe.This new tool could potentially influence human behaviour so that the techniques of social distancing are efficient, sensitive and balance the exposure risk, individual welfare, social health, and economic efficiency. Mor info about the project can be found on the Chronorobotics laboratory website. ...
The experimental design required the analysis of four, partially confounded treatment groups; i.e. the TT treatment contains both B and M cell types found in TB and TM treatments, while the TM treatment combines the effects of cell-specificity and the stress effect that is also seen in TS. In the following discussion, the term stress is used to refer specifically to the effect of protoplast isolation on transcript levels. Importantly, although the aim of the experiment is to compare expression levels between B and M cell types, the level of gene expression within the intact M could never be directly measured because of the stress effect of M cell isolation. A model was constructed in order to formally describe this situation and to allow statistical elimination of the stress effect.. Let V 1f and V 2f represent the log2 transformed expression level of a given feature (f) in B and M cell types, respectively. The aim is to estimate (V 1f - V 2f ) on a feature-by-feature basis. We use c to label ...

In a paper in the American Chemical Societys journal Langmuir*, NIST researchers detail a microfluidics technique to culture neuronal cells in relative isolation on a variety of cell-culture surfaces, and to pattern the cells on the surface to study the effects of geometry on cell development. The trick is to mask the substrate with multiple alternating layers of positively and negatively charged polymers, building up a so-called polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEM). Properly selected, the PEM coating convinces the neuronal cells that theyre in a good environment to attach, develop and produce the characteristic neuron projections and synapses, all without a glial layer. Even better, according to the NIST team, microfluidic channels can be used to lay down the PEM coating in patterned lines just a few micrometers wide. Neuronal cells will largely confine themselves to the pattern, enabling a variety of cell-geometry experiments, such as measuring the maximum gap between lines that can be bridged ...

Socially-isolated older adults are likely to be sicker and die sooner, and have higher health care expenses, than seniors who retain their social connections. A new study by researchers from the AARP Public Policy Institute, Stanford University, and Harvard finds that Medicare spends an estimated $6.7 billion more each year on seniors who have little social contact with others.. About 14 percent of study participants were identified as socially isolated, which meant they had little contact with adult children, other relatives, or friends. They were more likely to be male, white, live in cities, and have lower incomes and wealth than those with better social links. They were also more likely to have depression, difficulties managing daily activities, and have at least five chronic conditions. Interestingly, people who were married were just as likely to be isolated as singles. The study looked only at those 65 and older who were living in the community.. The study found that Medicare spent about ...
The findings, published recently in Cancer, reported that breast cancer patients with larger social networks had better outcomes; however, different demographics of women benefited from different types of relationships.. The research group from the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research (CA, USA) examined data regarding 9267 women from the After Breast Cancer Pooling Project collected within approximately 2 years after their diagnosis. The team analyzed information on these individuals with the aim of assessing the impact of social networks on their survival outcomes.. Over a median follow- up of 10.6 years, the team observed 1448 cancer recurrences and 1521 deaths, 990 of which were attributed to breast cancer. They demonstrated that compared with socially integrated patients, socially isolated patients had a 40% higher risk of recurrence and a 60% higher risk of death from breast cancer. In addition, the researchers discovered that associations between social networks and survival appeared to ...
The rights of young people to participate in decision-making processes that affect their lives has been encouraged since the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989). Since then, policy-makers and planners have started to consider the views of youth, especially those aged 11-17. The size of the youth population and their feelings of social isolation are two important reasons to include them in the decision-making that affects their local built environment. Little is known about youth opinions of the built environment and in particular disused religious buildings which can become a significant part of local cultural heritage. This paper explores youth perceptions, place attachment and influence on identity of a prominent disused local Methodist church in the City of Belfast. The paper details the expressive methodological approach designed to encourage youth participation in the regeneration scheme. The findings of the study showcase the valuable connections that can be made between
Background: Increasingly, more women are being diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.K. (Office of National Statistics 2000). Concurrently, as a result of treatment advances, mortality figures associated with the disease have steadily decreased (Peto et al. 2000). For survivors, quality of life issues such as fatigue, menopausal symptoms, depression, anxiety and social isolation are substantial concerns. A preliminary literature search has identified numerous benefits of regular physical exercise which directly address many of these same problems ...

A study in Nature Neuroscience has found that animals socially isolated for prolonged periods make less myelin (the brains white matter) in the region of the brain responsible for emotional and cognitive behavior.. Myelin is the fatty material that wraps the axons of neurons and allows them to signal effectively. Normal nerve function is lost in demyelinating disorders, such as multiple sclerosis.. The paper reveals for the first time a role for myelin in adult psychiatric disorders, says Karen Dietz, a study author from the University at Buffalo. "It demonstrates that plasticity in the brain is not restricted to neurons, but actively occurs in glial cells… which produce myelin," she explained.. In Dietzs experiment, adult mice, normally social animals, were isolated for eight weeks to induce a depressive-like state. Brain tissue analysis of the socially isolated animals revealed significantly lower than normal levels of gene transcription for oligodendrocyte cells in the prefrontal cortex, ...

Results 233 surveys were completed. Respondents were aged between 17 and 87 (mean = 47 years) and 65.7% were female. 46.2% identified themselves as having a longstanding illness, disability or infirmity and 30.7% reported feeling isolated from others at times. Those with lower levels of self-reported health - assessed using the EQ-5D health thermometer - were more likely to report feeling socially isolated (p = 0.002) and less likely to report feeling that things in their lives were worthwhile (p = 0.001). On average, respondents reported lower levels of personal wellbeing - assessed using the ONS4 questions - in comparison with averages for the UK as a whole. However, the majority indicated that they enjoyed living in the town (83.3%) and that they had friends or acquaintances in the area that they saw regularly (90.4%). Analysis of the free-text responses highlighted a strong sense of community spirit and pride, but that this could be under threat due to issues relating to housing, employment ...

Kiecolt-Glaser et al. (1984). Kiecolt-Glaser has been particularly interested in naturalistic life stressors and their impact on measures of immune function. In this study her group used 75 medical students preparing for final examinations. As an index of immune function they used natural killer (NK) cell activity, part of our natural immunity system.. Measures of NK cell activity were recorded from blood smaples taken one month before exams (low stress) and during the exam period (high stress). Participants also completed questionnaires on experience of negative life events and social isolation. Findings were that NK cell activity was significantly reduced in the high stress samples, compared to the low stress samples. In addition, the greatest reductions were in students reporting higher levels of social isolation.. Kiecolt-Glaser et al concluded that examination stress (a brief naturalistic stressor in Segerstom and Millers approach) reduces immune function, making people potentially more ...

The study is published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.. Research has shown that the brain processes physical and social pain in some of the same regions. Bregtje Gunther Moor, Eveline A. Crone, and Maurits W. van der Molen of the University of Amsterdam and Leiden University in the Netherlands wanted to find out how social pain affects you physically. For the study, volunteers were asked to send the researchers a photograph of themselves. They were told that for a study on first impressions, students at another university would look at the photo to decide whether they liked the volunteer. This was just a cover story for the real experiment. A few weeks later, each volunteer came to the laboratory, had wires placed on their chest for an electrocardiogram, and looked at a series of unfamiliar faces-actual students from another university. For each face, the volunteer was asked to guess whether that student liked them. Then they were told whether ...

By examining the unique challenges and needs of this patient population, we can identify and develop innovative interventions to meet their needs. In doing this, we should consider the following:. Understand patients social and behavioral needs in addition to their medical conditions. The survey findings show the range of social and behavioral health challenges facing these patients in addition to their complex medical conditions. Social isolation and material hardship, for example, have been shown to aggravate medical conditions.9 For health systems, payers, and programs to improve outcomes for high-need adults, providers must consider multiple factors-individuals may have multiple chronic diseases, functional limitations, behavioral health conditions, and material hardships.10 To help people who most need resources, the interventions must be more comprehensive and creative than just a standard set of doctor visits.11 Health care providers should build relationships and collaborate with social ...
Source: used with permission Lisa Langhammer. To protect ourselves, our families, and our communities from the devastation of the coronavirus health experts are strongly encouraging everyone to "socially distance" - to stay 6-10 feet away from other people.. I am concerned - not by the strategy but by the way people are enacting it. The few times I have ventured out to a grocery store or for a walk around my neighborhood, Ive seen people not only keeping distant from one another but also seeming afraid. They pass each other on the street or in a store without looking at each other or exchanging greetings.. Its as if we were each locked in a personal bubble that no one can enter. The threat of COVID-19 and the stress it induces can understandably cause individuals to become terrified and myopic - to turn inward in an attempt to stay safe. While a week of that may be more stressful to some than others, months of this type of social isolation is dangerous. Research clearly shows us that our ...

I have read your article, and come to slightly but significantly different conclusions. It looks likely that MAiD is indeed influenced by Social and Economic FACTORS, just not the factors which we were worried about, a priori. And "vulnerabilities", both social and economic, might include different factors than just Social Isolation and Economic Poverty. There is not "equity" in accessing MAiD, clearly, as richer and more socially-connected people are getting more of it. We cannot hope to correct this inequity, if we dont know more about whats causing it. Indeed, might patients with more social-power and money, be occasionally influenced by malicious persons who wish theyd be separated from both? More likely, it is that patients, socially-isolated and impoverished, are not getting equitable access to MAiD that they need, because there is no one who personally cares to advocate for them. But, both possibilities need to be kept in mind.. ...

The Be Well data can also be used for advocating for healthy public policies that improve access to the determinants of health and mitigate the impacts of poverty and other barriers to health such as mental health, social isolation and discrimination ...
Social engagement is theorized to promote health, with ages 55 to 75-what some call "encore" adulthood-potentially being a time for ongoing engagement or social isolation. We use the American Time Use Survey (N = 11,952) and a life course perspective to examine associations between paid work, resources, relations, and healthy time use for men and women in the first (55-64) and second (65-74) halves of the encore years. Work limits sufficient sleep (full-time working men) and television watching (all workers) but also time spent in physical activity (full-time workers). ...

In recent years, inclusive design (a.k.a. universal design or design for all) is one of the developed approaches which aim to consider the diverse human abilities and conditions in the design process. As defined by the European Institute for Design and Disability (EIDD) design for all is designing for diversity, social inclusion and equality. Considering the social and demographic changes in the 21st century, which include an international movement towards social inclusion and more specifically the rights of disabled people, an inclusive approach is turning into a necessity for todays diverse and ageing society. In the case of architectural and urban heritage, the disabled people or in better words those with diverse sensory, mental or mobility abilities ...
Research Outcome Measures 7.31 Research methods are not the only important factor in designing trials; the outcome measures used to measure the effect of a therapy also require consideration. Outcome measures can include both objective and subjective measures. Objective clinical measures include the quantification of physiological indices such as blood pressure or the size of tumour. Subjective measures include symptom scores, patient satisfaction scales and quality of life measures. Traditionally RCTs have concentrated on objective findings although, more recently, patient-centred outcome measures have also been used and some well-established questionnaires have been developed. Nowadays quality of life measures can include measures of pain, physical activity, sleep, energy, emotional reactions and social isolation. 7.32 The research undertaken should identify a single or, at most, two principal outcome measures, and the trial should achieve the appropriate level of significance, (e.g. p,0.05 or ...
People who are thinking about taking their lives believe that suicide is the only way to escape the inner pain they are going through. They may be overwhelmed with unemployment, homelessness, social isolation, hopelessness and depression - all factors that contribute to mental illness; or they may be experiencing a major loss, such as the death of a loved one, losing a job, or the break-up of an important relationship ...
2. Falls Amongst Older Canadian are Common and Costly and Yet Largely Preventable. Falls amongst older Canadians cannot only threaten their independence and overall well-being, but they account for an estimated at $2.2 billion dollars annually in related-health care spending across Canada to address the consequences related to them.21 Furthermore, older Canadians who are hospitalized due a fall are in hospital on average nine days longer than for any other reason.22 In Canada, between 20-30%23 of older adults fall annually and with current demographic imperatives, the systemic burden associated with falls is only likely to increase if current trends persist.. Causes of falls among older adults are usually multifactorial. Some of the leading causes of falls include: the presence of chronic and acute health conditions that can negatively impact a persons strength and balance, independent balance or gait deficits, decreased sensory abilities, inadequate nutrition, social isolation, and challenges ...

The solution to this heart situation which they say is not totally unexpected for someone who has been through what I have (if i had a dollar for every time a doctor used that excuse...) is to increase the meds to the max dose. The downside of this is the side effects which suck. I didnt realise that one of the biggest initial side effects was depression which thankfully explained a weekend spent watching greys anatomy and 9/11 documentaries in tears and social isolation. In addition, it regulates and slows your heart rate and pulse down a lot so the best way to describe your physical state is like driving through life with the emergency break on or better yet putting your heart in a vice grip. Now the one thing I dont need in my life is another handicap. I find working 100% in another language, being a mom and wife quite enough to manage in my already reduced capacity so when I have to take something that takes away some of that all too precious capacity, I definitely feel it. It has been ...

The leader of an independent school in Leeds has warned young people they will need to learn to speak another language or risk social isolation after Brexit.
Before summarizing data with descriptive statistics or making inferences about parameters it is important to look at the data. It is hard to see any patterns by looking at a list of hundreds of numbers. Equally, a single descriptive statistic in isolation can be misleading and give the wrong impression of the data. A plot of the data is therefore essential. ...
Introduction: Musculoskeletal pain is a prevalent health challenge for all age groups worldwide, but most notably in older adults. Social isolation is the consequence of a decrease in social network size with a reduction in the number of social contacts. Loneliness is the psychological embodiment of social isolation and represents an individuals perception of dissatisfaction in the quality or quantity of their social contacts. This study aims to determine whether a relationship exists between musculoskeletal pain and social isolation and loneliness. Methods: A cross-sectional analysis of the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA) cohort was undertaken. ELSA is a nationally representative sample of the non-institutionalised population of individuals aged 50 years and over based in England. Data were gathered on social isolation through the ELSA Social Isolation Index, loneliness through the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Loneliness Scale and musculoskeletal pain. Data for ...
There are limited empirical research studies examining loneliness and social isolation among Black older adults. Studying loneliness and social isolation among older Black populations is important given the projected growth of the Black older adult population in coming years, Black older adults disproportionately experience life situations associated with greater loneliness and social isolation compared to White older adults, Black older adults are significantly less likely to use health and social services compared to older Whites, and Black Americans are more likely to live in environments that lack economic and social resources, and have severe hazards in terms of the built environment. Given the limited knowledge in this area and significance of this topic, the purpose of my dissertation is to determine risk factors for loneliness and social isolation among Black older adults and whether risk factors for loneliness and social isolation among Black older adults vary by sex, age, and environmental
Published on: April 8, 2014. by Kounteya Sinha for The Times Of India:. Humans experiencing high levels of social stress and deprivation have shorter telomeres.. Telomeres are the protective caps at the end of chromosomes which are the best indicators of biological age (cell age) as against chronological age.. Scientists say the length of telomeres is crucial in deciding biological age - long ones indicate healthy ageing, short ones indicate some form of irreparable damage.. Several studies suggest that telomere shortening is accelerated by stress but until now no studies examined the effects of social isolation on telomere shortening.. To test whether social isolation accelerates telomere shortening, Denise Aydinonat, a doctorate student at the Vetmeduni Vienna conducted a study using DNA samples that she collected from African grey parrots during routine check-ups.. African greys are highly social birds, but they are often reared and kept in isolation from other parrots. She and her ...
Loneliness and Social Isolation in Older Adults It is assumed that older adults, aged sixty-five and older, grow lonely with increased social isolation. This stereotype of the aging population is based on the assumption of lacking of an intimate attachment, such as a significant other, or lacking a sense of companionship or a close circle…

There appears to be a wide range of actions and behaviors that constitute parental alienation. No one behavior characterized the full sample and no alienating parent utilized just one strategy. Thus, Parental Alienation Syndrome can be effectuated through many possible combinations of strategies, and there is no one formula for doing so. This means that counteracting will be difficult because the targeted parent may not even know all the strategies that the alienating parent is using. Most alienating parents probably participate in bad-mouthing, but bad-mouthing alone may not be sufficient to effectuate alienation and countering the bad-mouthing may not be enough to counter the alienation. Thus, parents who believe that they are the targets of parental alienation should assume that the alienating parent is utilizing an array of strategies. In the absence of tested interventions for Parental Alienation Syndrome, it may be advisable for targeted parents (or parents who suspect they are being ...

Downloadable! This paper explores the impact of internet use in old age on social isolation and on subjective well-being. Does internet use make older people less or more lonely? Does it crowd out face-to-face contacts or enhance them? We found that social isolation is lower among internet users aged 65 or over. Using a European multi-country cross-sectional dataset with over 11000 observations, we found that those who use the internet regularly have a lower chance of being isolated, more so for those who use the internet every day, controlling for personal characteristics such as income, marital status, gender and health condition. Thus, personal social meetings and virtual contacts are complementary, rather than substituting for each other. Internet use may be a useful way of reducing social isolation. We also found a positive relationship between regular internet use and self-reported life satisfaction, all else being equal. Our findings were robust in alternative specifications as well.
Human fibroblasts, and specifically embryonic or neonatal fibroblasts, have represented the conventional cell substrate for recovery of HCMV from clinical samples since the beginning of medical virology. Due to the increasing need for recovery of HCMV from the blood of immunocompromised patients, we investigated whether use of HCMV-free HUVEC could increase the recovery rate of HCMV from blood (buffy coat) samples in comparison to HELF. Clinical samples other than blood were inoculated in parallel onto the two cell substrates as controls. Surprisingly, while the isolation rate from blood samples did not increase on HUVEC compared to HELF, no or very little virus could be recovered on primary isolation on HUVEC from clinical samples other than blood, even when virus was present in exceedingly large amounts. Thus, HELF were confirmed as the cell substrate of choice for isolation of HCMV from the broadest series of clinical samples, whereas HCMV recovery on HUVEC was substantially restricted to ...
Just figure a way to make it tax deductible or billable, and youre good to go.. Lets Talk. Joan Rivers, may she rest in fashion heaven, can still bring a smile.

Background: Stereotypies are repetitive, invariant compulsive behavioural sequences often observed in captive or domestic animals. Owing to the relative infrequency of their observation in wild- or freeranging animals, stereotypies are assumed to be a product of captivity (1). Stereotypies are more commonly observed in animals kept in social isolation or sub-optimal environments lacking sufficient species-relevant enrichment (2); thus, their presence is often considered to be an indicator of poor welfare (3). Domestic horses, particularly those kept in intensive housing systems (boxes, stalls, etc.) show a range of stereotypic behaviours, including oral (crib-biting) and locomotor (weaving) behaviours (4).. One strong risk factor for the development of stereotypic behaviour is social isolation (5, 6) and isolation rearing is known to be a strong risk factor for the development of stereotypic behaviours in horses (7). Despite this, relatively little is known about the mechanisms that link social ...
Introduction. Psychiatric disorders are becoming a public health problem worldwide. Schizophrenia is a serious and persistent neurobiological brain disease1. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, schizophrenia is a serious psychotic disorder that occurs in approximately 1.1% of the population at the age of 18 years2-4. Data from the National Health Research of The Health Ministry of Indonesia in 2013 show that the prevalence of severe mental disorders has reached 1.7 per mile5. Despite the low incidence of schizophrenia, the prevalence of this disease is quite high because the disease is categorized as a chronic illness, with higher rates of relapse and re-hospitalization6,7. Moreover, the symptom and prognosis severity8 of schizophrenia tends to lead to higher rates of disability, mortality1,9, and suicide4.. Schizophrenia is a major psychotic illness causing a series of symptoms, including both positive and negative symptoms that impair cognitive thought, socialization skills, ...

Studies are showing that loneliness is a risk factor for a number of health issues. Problems like disturbed sleep and low cardiac output, which can lead to an imbalance between oxygen delivery and oxygen consumption leading to metabolic acidosis (when the body produces excessive quantities of acid), are being linked to prolonged feelings of loneliness.. The studies have found that social isolation makes people vulnerable to disease and can shorten life. When looking at the findings of many similar studies, the results suggest that loneliness is as risky to health as obesity.. An interesting fact has emerged from the studies too that show that some people may have a hereditary disposition for feelings of loneliness. In twin studies it was found that though loneliness may change across a lifespan according to environmental factors, there did appear to be evidence of genetic contribution.. It is worth noting too that these studies were conducted across various age ranges, from young adults to the ...
Seniors have much time and the opportunity to drink, while health concerns or social isolation can make drinking more attractive to them. Experts say the problem of alcoholism in old age needs to be taken more seriously.
RESEARCHERS found that the lonelier a person feels, the more miserable they are when they have a cold. The researchers noted that people can feel lonely regardless of the number of friends they have. "Loneliness is a major risk factor for poor mental and physical health," Cacioppo, who was not involved in the new research, told Live Science in an email. "About 5 to 10 percent of the population reports feeling lonely frequently or all the time, and an additional 20 to 30 percent report feeling lonely at least sometimes ...
