The Tea Party does not have a single uniform agenda. The decentralized character of the Tea Party, with its lack of formal structure or hierarchy, allows each autonomous group to set its own priorities and goals. Goals may conflict, and priorities will often differ between groups. Many Tea Party organizers see this as a strength rather than a weakness, as decentralization has helped to immunize the Tea Party against co-opting by outside entities and corruption from within.[17]. The Tea Party has generally sought to avoid placing too much emphasis on traditional conservative social issues. National Tea Party organizations, such as the Tea Party Patriots and FreedomWorks, have expressed concern that engaging in social issues would be divisive.[17] Instead, they have sought to have activists focus their efforts away from social issues and focus on economic and limited government issues.[18][19] Still, many groups like Glenn Becks 9/12 Tea Parties, TeaParty.org, the Iowa Tea Party and Delaware ...
The relevance of individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy in the context of post-apartheid South Africa is a contentious issue. The western-centric universalist bias of this treatment approach has been criticised for not being applicable to Black South African individuals. With these criticisms in mind the appropriacy and efficacy of psychoanalytic psychotherapy was examined by focusing on three Black English-speaking South African women between the ages of 25 and 35 from the urban Western Cape. A collective case study design situated within a postmodern framework of enquiry was chosen for its capacity to incorporate both the therapists and the participants experience of the therapeutic process over time. This study focused on the analytic attitude, which comprises the basic template through which psychoanalytic psychotherapy is practised. The model used was that described by Ivey (1999) which includes five elements: generative uncertainty, abstinence, neutrality, countertransference ...

I attended a very good lecture last week on contemporary views of countertransference. It inspired me to write a brief overview of the concept here, with more to follow.. To understand countertransference, it helps to tackle transference first. Transference was a word coined by Sigmund Freud to label the way patients "transfer" feelings from important persons in their early lives, onto the psychoanalyst or therapist. Psychoanalysis was specifically designed to encourage transference. Intentional opacity and non-disclosure by the therapist promotes transference; the patient naturally makes assumptions about the therapists likes and dislikes, attitude toward the patient, life outside the office, and so forth. These assumptions are based on the patients experiences with, and assumptions regarding, other important relationships, such as childhood relations with parents. In this way the patients formative dynamics are re-created in the therapy office for both participants to observe. Patients ...

Countertransference is defined as redirection of a psychotherapists feelings toward a client - or, more generally, as a therapists emotional entanglement with a client. The phenomenon of countertransference (German: Gegenübertragung) was first defined publicly by Sigmund Freud in 1910 (The Future Prospects of Psycho-Analytic Therapy) as being "a result of the patients influence on [the physicians] unconscious feelings"; although Freud had been aware of it privately for some time, writing to Carl Jung for example in 1909 of the need "to dominate counter-transference, which is after all a permanent problem for us". Freud stated that since an analyst is a human himself he can easily let his emotions into the client. Because Freud saw the countertransference as a purely personal problem for the analyst, he rarely referred to it publicly, and did so almost invariably in terms of a "warning against any countertransference lying in wait" for the analyst, who "must recognize this ...
Daphne mentions transference. The Freudians are still analyzing transference when it should be obvious that instead of explaining how the patient is transferring feelings from daddy onto him, that she needs to express those needs to daddy; to cry, scream and beg for love where it belongs; then we do not have to analyze any transference. Analyzing changes nothing; it explains. If you had a virus we could analyze it and explain why you have it, but much better to treat it and the cause. "I know youre hungry but I cannot give you any food," is the same as I know you need love but I cannot give you any. Offering food (love) to a starving patient is better than not doing it; and there we have the "raison detre" for analysis; I know. I did it for 17 years and was trained at the Freudian center of the west. We give love but we dont call it that. But we listen endlessly to your travails, are concerned, helpful, encouraging, and concentrate only on you. That is why all of the studies on therapy insist ...
Never again will any political party ignore the protests of the church and the moral forces of the state." -Wayne B. Wheeler, as quoted in Smithsonian, May 2010*. The godfather of prohibition did not wait until he had a majority behind his cause when he began his Temperance crusade. He did it-according to Daniel Okrents illuminating article in the May 2010 issue of Smithsonian-with minorities.. Wheeler focused on elections in districts where just a few percentage points separated the candidates, and mustered the temperance vote behind candidates who promised to support prohibition. His small groups of committed voters often were enough to swing close elections. Wayne Wheeler may not have invented pressure groups, but he was the first to use them effectively to gain a specific political objective in the face of a majority that was either opposed-or indifferent-to his aims.. The Tea Party movement has benefited from Wayne Wheelers lessons. Its members are among the most conservative elements of ...
Background. Conversion disorder is largely managed by neurologists, for whom it presents great challenges to understanding and management. This study aimed to quantify these challenges, examining how neurologists understand conversion disorder, and what they tell their patients.. Methods. A postal survey of all consultant neurologists in the UK registered with the Association of British Neurologists.. Results. 349 of 591 practising consultant neurologists completed the survey. They saw conversion disorder commonly. While they endorsed psychological models for conversion, they diagnosed it according to features of the clinical presentation, most importantly inconsistency and abnormal illness behaviour. Most of the respondents saw feigning as entangled with conversion disorder, with a minority seeing one as a variant of the other. They were quite willing to discuss psychological factors as long as the patient was receptive but were generally unwilling to discuss feigning even though they saw it as ...

Combined spinal epidural (CSE) can provide excellent labor analgesia. Subdural block is also a potential but rare complication of attempted epidural placement during a CSE procedure, which may present as a block that is usually patchy in nature, with a component of sensory and/or motor deficit and a variable duration of action. In addition, a conversion disorder or a functional neurological disorder has been described with epidural and spinal anesthesia in obstetric patients. In this clinical report, we describe a 33-year-old G4P3 at 40 weeks gestation that received an unintentional subdural block as part of her labor analgesia and after an uneventful caesarean delivery presented with a conversion disorder. The rarity of the association between a subdural block and a conversion disorder complicated by the fact that the neurological deficit produced by the subdural block and that produced by a conversion disorder are similar in distribution made the clinical presentation and diagnosis a challenge for the

I will discuss the developmental process in terms of Kathys case history, which may be found in BOLs Clinical Case Conference. I will not limit myself to topics of clinical importance. Neither will I attempt a detailed analysis of her case, since that is evidently impossible based on published information. My intention is merely to use the reported facts of Kathys life alternately as points of focus and of departure in addressing developmental issues as they come to mind.. Oedipal conflicts. Freudian theory puts the emergence of oedipal strivings at about two years of age, or perhaps a bit earlier, and sees them as being important to issues of individuation and gender identification (On the Way to Self, by Johanna Krout Tabin). I agree with this viewpoint. I see a childs efforts to compete with the parent of the same sex for the other parents attention and affection as placing healthy boundaries on a childs natural inclination to identify closely with the parent of the same sex. The child ...
Joness early published work on psychoanalysis had been devoted to expositions of the fundamentals of Freudian theory, an elaboration of its theory of symbolism, and its application to the analysis of religion, mythology, folklore and literary and artistic works. Under the influence of Melanie Klein, Jones work took a new direction. Klein had made an impact in Berlin in the new field of child analysis and had impressed Jones in 1925 when he attended her series of lectures to the British Society in London. At Joness invitation she moved to London the following year; she soon acquired a number of devoted and influential followers. Her work had a dramatic effect on the British Society, polarising its members into rival factions as it became clear that her approach to child analysis was seriously at odds with that of Anna Freud, as set out in her 1927 book An Introduction to the Technique of Child Analysis. The disagreement centred around the clinical approach to the pre-Oedipal child; Klein ...

But memory is a funny thing. Yesterday, as I walked that exact path home I stopped to take a picture of where I was at that moment and to reflect on what the commentators had said. When I got home I went to the NPR archives to look for a transcript of that report. And much to my chagrin I found out they didnt say that at all. Yes, they discussed Kagan and her nomination but there is no mention of the Republican voting party lines. But I was sure they had. Funny how your mind works.. Ideas dont just happen. They arent pulled out of a magic hat. Often disparate interests sit someplace in our brains just waiting to be put together to create something new. Id always been interested in propaganda posters from the 1940s. I liked their stylized illustrations paired with often sparse but efficient calls to action. Both were hallmarks of great graphic design. In addition, despite many Americans notions that we enjoy the greatest freedoms of any nation in the world, is that really true? Is our ...
Left: chicory root Right: chicory flowers. You see, when the city of New Orleans was under siege during the American Civil War, coffee supplies dwindled to near nothing. However, inventive locals stretched out their coffee supplies by adding roasted chicory root.. While it lacks caffeine, chicory root is cheap and tasty and makes a great addition to coffee. So even after the supply lines were reopened, citizens of New Orleans kept chicory in their coffee. In fact, chicory coffee is still available in many New Orleans restaurants.. But what folks didnt realize at the time, adding this earthy root to their coffee wasnt just padding the supply. It was also boosting their health.. In more recent years, chicory root has been the subject of many health studies. Its been shown to reduce inflammation, delay or prevent the onset of diabetes, and even help folks arthritis.. In one study, folks who took chicory root extract saw improved A1c levels, which is an indicator of diabetes. In addition, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - An empirical investigation of the anxiolytic and pain reducing effects of music. AU - Davies, John B.. AU - Macdonald, Raymond A.R.. AU - Mitchell, Laura A.. AU - Dillon, Teresa. AU - Serpell, Michael G.. AU - Ashley, Euan A.. PY - 2003/4/1. Y1 - 2003/4/1. N2 - This article reports two empirical experiments investigating the anxiety and pain reducing effects of listening to music via personal stereo following surgical procedures involving general anaesthetic. Both experiments involved participants selecting music of their own choice. In Experiment 1, following minor surgery on the foot, 20 participants in an experimental group listened to music while 20 participants in a control group did not. Results indicate that the music group felt significantly less anxiety than the control group. No differences in pain measurements between the two groups were found. Experiment 2 involved a music listening group of 30 females and a no music control group of 28 females. Both groups underwent ...
Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis is a pathogenic bacterium which has been rapidly spreading all over the world, causing economic losses in the agricultural sector and sporadically infecting humans. Six C. pseudotuberculosis strains were isolated from goats, sheep, and horses with distinct abscess locations. For the first time, Mexican genomes of this bacterium were sequenced and studied in silico. All strains were sequenced using Ion Personal Genome Machine sequencer, assembled using Newbler and SPAdes software. The automatic genome annotation was done using the software RAST and in-house scripts for transference, followed by manual curation using Artemis software and BLAST against NCBI and UniProt databases. The six genomes are publicly available in NCBI database. The analysis of nucleotide sequence similarity and the generated phylogenetic tree led to the observation that the Mexican strains are more similar between strains from the same host, but the genetic structure is probably more influenced by

Nucelolar morphology was studied by electron microscopy in control and actinomycin D-treated populations of Tetrahymena pyriformis (W) during the cultural growth cycle. Nucleoli exhibit an "aging" cycle concomitant with the cultural growth cycle, but independent of the individual cell cycle. Four different stages in the course of this aging process have been defined. Stage 1 occurs upon inoculation (low number of cells per milliliter) and lasts through lag and accelerating growth phases. In this stage, many small nucleoli are found at the nuclear periphery. In stages 2 and 3, nucleolar fusion begins. Stage 2 dominates the first half of logarithmic growth, and stage 3 dominates the second half. In late decelerating growth phase, the nucleoli enter stage 4. In this stage, only a few large nucleoli are present and these are apparently inactive in ribosome production. In stationary phase, where total RNA remains constant, only stage 4 nucleoli are present. The relative preponderance of granular vs. ...
Cerebellar granule cells are susceptible to the excitotoxin glutamate, which acts at N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, as well as the neurotoxin 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium ion (MPP+), the active cytotoxic metabolite of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP). Paradoxically, preincubation of cultured cerebellar granule cells with low concentrations of NMDA or glutamate markedly antagonizes the neurotoxicity resulting from subsequent exposure to toxic concentrations of either MPP+ or glutamate. The neuroprotective effects of NMDA and glutamate against MPP+ toxicity are observed at agonist concentrations as low as 1 microM, are blocked by specific NMDA receptor antagonists, and require at least 30 min to develop fully. Moreover, NMDA receptor-mediated neuroprotection is prevented by the RNA synthesis inhibitor actinomycin D or the protein synthesis inhibitor cycloheximide. Thus, in cerebellar granule cells activation of NMDA receptors by glutamate can result in either ...

The present study sought to investigate the impact of psychotherapy integration, incorporating some cognitive-behavioral (CB) techniques with psychodynamic-interpersonal (PI) techniques, with the moderating impact of borderline personality pathology on short-term psychodynamic psychotherapy treatment outcomes in a sample of 75 outpatients. PI and CB techniques were assessed using independent videotape ratings of therapy sessions and aspects of the alliance were determined using patient-rated scores. Axis II borderline personality pathology was measured using the Borderline Pathology Index (BPI). Treatment outcomes were measured using patients estimates of their broadband functioning (PEI) and change in global symptom index of the brief symptom inventory (BSI-GSI-RCI). Findings of preliminary analyses were nonsignificant; the direct relationship between patient pretreatment borderline pathology with the flexible integration of CB and PI techniques was not significant. In addition, PI and CB ...
The Relational Perspectives Book Series (RPBS) publishes books that grow out of or contribute to the relational tradition in contemporary psychoanalysis. The term relational psychoanalysis was first used by Greenberg and Mitchell (1983) to bridge the traditions of interpersonal relations, as developed within interpersonal psychoanalysis and object relations, as developed within contemporary British theory. But, under the seminal work of the late Stephen Mitchell, the term relational psychoanalysis grew and began to accrue to itself many other influences and developments. Various tributaries-interpersonal psychoanalysis, object relations theory, self psychology, empirical infancy research, and elements of contemporary Freudian and Kleinian thought-flow into this tradition, which understands relational configurations between self and others, both real and fantasied, as the primary subject of psychoanalytic investigation. We refer to the relational tradition, rather than to a relational school, to ...
Lacanian notions of castration are linked to frustration and deprivation, lacking and giving, and ultimately to object relations. These represent a certain culmination of the history of psychoanalytic thought on the subject. To better define their importance, let us examine their history. Starting in 1905, Freud posited a theory of object relations that would be linked to the stages of libidinal development (Freud, 1905d). He later proposed that the loss of feces should be considered as the precursor of the castration complex (Freud, 1916-1917e). Thus the Freudian concept is "absolutely realist." It fell to August Stärke, in a long and important article published in 1921, to expand this theory by proposing that the breast no longer be considered the first lost object and the model for castration anxiety. Instead he recommended that masochistic pleasure also be connected with castration anxiety, which is expressed as a desire to receive the penis. In 1928, building on theories advanced by Karl ...

This is the second article in a series of nine (as of January 29th, 2012), regarding the 12 girls in Le Roy, New York. If you havent read the first, you may want to start with this article, which was written on January 15th: Cause of Epidemic in Le Roy is Hush-Hush: "Are The Le Roy Twelve Really Victims of Vaccine-Injury?". Article Two: Written January 18, 2012…. Todays latest on The Le Roy Twelve reveals there is finally a diagnosis for the mysterious tic disorders in these formerly healthy and vibrant young women: "Mass Hysteria." The psychiatrists have determined that there is no real physical cause for the sudden onset of symptoms associated with serious neurological damage, so they have conclusively stated, "Its all in their heads." Its a "conversion disorder." For those who may not have heard of "Mass Hysteria" or Conversion Disorder, let me give you a little background.. The concept of Conversion Disorder was first proposed by Dr. Sigmund Freud. Dr. Freud usually gets credit for ...
Psychiatry trainees are the consultants of the future, and many will go on to prescribe psychotherapy and manage psychotherapy services. As such, their experience of, and attitudes towards, psychotherapy will determine the place of psychotherapy in the NHS.. We were primarily interested in whether the practice of personal psychotherapy really mattered to trainees, training schemes or to psychiatry in general. The fact that only 16% of participants had direct experience of their own psychotherapy may suggest that it is merely of interest to a minority. However, our findings also indicated that many trainees had or would consider psychotherapy for themselves, suggesting that many felt it had some value or role.. So, given that many participants felt personal psychotherapy has a value, what was the nature of the value added? We initially hypothesised that personal psychotherapy was providing support or an acceptable form of treatment for these doctors. However, the study raised the possibility that ...

An in vitro ischemia model was established and the effect of the metabolic inhibitors cycloheximide (CHX) and actinomycin D (ActD) on apoptosis in astrocytes under ischemia studied. CHX decreased by 75% the number of cells dying after 6 hr of ischemia compared with control cultures. TdT-mediated dUTP nick end labelling (TUNEL) staining of comparable cultures was reduced by 40%. ActD decreased cell death by 60% compared with controls. The number of TUNEL-positive cells was reduced by 38%. The nuclear shrinkage in TUNEL-positive astrocytes in control cultures did not occur in ActD-treated astrocytes, indicating that nuclear shrinkage and DNA fragmentation during apoptosis are two unrelated processes. Expression of bcl-2 (alpha and beta), bax, and Ice in astrocytes under similar ischemic conditions, as measured by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, indicated that ischemia down-regulated bcl-2 (alpha and beta) and bax. Ice was initially down-regulated from 0 to 4 hr, ...
Defective acute regulation of hepatic glycogen synthase by glucose and insulin, caused by severe insulin deficiency, can be corrected in adult rat hepatocytes in primary culture by inclusion of insulin, triiodothyronine, and cortisol in a chemically defined serum-free culture medium over a 3-day period (Miller, T. B., Jr., Garnache, A. K., Cruz, J., McPherson, R. K., and Wolleben, C. (1986) J. Biol. Chem. 261, 785-790). Using primary cultures of hepatocytes isolated from normal and diabetic rats in the same serum-free chemically defined medium, the present study addresses the effects of cycloheximide and actinomycin D on the chronic actions of insulin, triiodothyronine, and cortisol to facilitate the direct effects of glucose on the short-term activation of glycogen synthase. The short-term presence (1 h) of the protein synthesis blockers had no effect on acute activation of glycogen synthase by glucose in primary hepatocyte cultures from normal rats. Normal cells maintained in the presence of

Results The mean age of cases was 40.8yrs (s.d. 12.1, range 20-59; not significantly different from controls p=0.299). Both groups were 78.8%(n=26) female. Cases had marked levels of functional impairment on admission with 60.6%(n=20) wheelchair or bedbound, 42.4%(n=14) dependent for ADLs, and an 87.9%(n=29) unemployment rate. The mean Modified Rankin Scale (MRS) score for cases was 3.64 (s.d. 0.86, range disability 2 [slight]-5 [severe]), with a median length of illness pre-admission of 48months (IQR 19-72), and median length of stay 101days (IQR 84-130). All three values were higher than controls (p=0.003, p,0.001, p=0.03 respectively).,Cases were significantly more likely than controls to have a history of all forms of abuse, particularly childhood sexual abuse (p,0.001; n=12/36.4% of cases), a pre-morbid non-dissociative psychiatric history (p,,0.001; n=27/81.8% of cases), and a history of prior employment as a health/social-care worker (p=0.002; n=15/45.5% of cases).,Regarding outcomes, ...
1. The normal development of the key enzymes of gluconeogenesis in rat liver, glucose 6-phosphatase, hexose diphosphatase, phosphopyruvate carboxylase and pyruvate carboxylase, was measured during the neonatal period. 2. Glucose 6-phosphatase, hexose diphosphatase and pyruvate carboxylase are all present in the late foetal liver, but all the enzymes show an increase in activity after birth. 3. Phosphopyruvate carboxylase is not present in liver extracts from foetal rats, but activity appears immediately after birth and increases rapidly over the first day and then more slowly to reach its maximum at the fourth postnatal day. 4. The fluorinated synthetic glucocorticoid, triamcinolone, was administered to foetal rats at various gestation times by intraperitoneal injection in utero and the animals were killed at intervals between 4 and 48hr. later. 5. The administration of triamcinolone results in slight depression of glucose 6-phosphatase, and a more significant depression of hexose diphosphatase ...
In the first half of the 20th century, when psychoanalysis was at the height of its influence, its concepts were applied to Hamlet, notably by Sigmund Freud, Ernest Jones, and Jacques Lacan, and these studies influenced theatrical productions. In his The Interpretation of Dreams (1900), Freuds analysis starts from the premise that "the play is built up on Hamlets hesitations over fulfilling the task of revenge that is assigned to him; but its text offers no reasons or motives for these hesitations".[104] After reviewing various literary theories, Freud concludes that Hamlet has an "Oedipal desire for his mother and the subsequent guilt [is] preventing him from murdering the man [Claudius] who has done what he unconsciously wanted to do".[105] Confronted with his repressed desires, Hamlet realises that "he himself is literally no better than the sinner whom he is to punish".[104] Freud suggests that Hamlets apparent "distaste for sexuality"-articulated in his "nunnery" conversation with ...
Renowned agricultural economist Dr. Charles Benbrook was commissioned by Greenpeace to make the first ever forecast of how Europe would be impacted by authorising the cultivation of genetically engineered herbicide tolerant corn, soy and sugar beet. Greenpeace has also travelled through Argentina and USA to speak to farmers and their communities about how herbicide tolerant crop monocultures have affected their economy, environment and community. These first person accounts formed the basis for the documentary Growing Doubt (the film above). Witness accounts from Argentina and USA and Dr. Benbrooks forecast report present a grim view of a future Europe: the over-reliance on herbicide-tolerant crops in the U.S. has triggered the emergence and rapid spread of nearly two dozen glyphosate-resistant weeds, driving up farm production costs, as well as the volume and toxicity of herbicides needed to prevent major yield loss. Europe will face a similar reality by 2025, should herbicide tolerant ...
Missouri State Penitentiary A first person account of what it was like to serve time in the maximum-security prison at Jefferson City, Missouri. by J. J. Maloney When I was sent to the Missouri State Penitentiary at Jefferson City, in February 1960, there were 2,500 men inside the walls. The white convicts slept three to a cell (except for several hundred in the one-man cells). The blacks slept as many as eight to a cell. Stabbings and killings, robberies and rapes were common. Dope was easier to get in prison than it was on the streets. There were men in prison who were said to make more money each year from dope and gambling than the warden was paid. There were captains on the guard force who owed their souls to certain convicts. You never knew whom you might have trouble with. The reasons for murder and mayhem made little sense to anyone except the convicts. So hundreds of men either carried a knife or had one they could get to in an emergency. You wonder if you have an enemy in the population.
Depression has been linked to (lack of) sunlight exposure and raised intracellular calcium levels. In this pathway, the role of the vitamin D pathway in calcium signaling in depression is shown. Active 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D3 is formed from 7-dehydrocholesterol by multiple conversion steps. It associates with RXR and VDR in the nucleus, which stimulates transcription of VDR target genes, resulting in lower intracellular calcium levels. Less sunlight exposure results in lower 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 levels and therefore higher calcium levels ...
The oxidation of polyamines induced by antitumour polyamine analogues has been associated with tumour response to specific agents. The human spermine oxidase, SMO(PAOh1), is one enzyme that may play a direct role in the cellular response to the antitumour polyamine analogues. In the present study, the induction of SMO(PAOh1) enzyme activity by CPENSpm [N1-ethyl-N11-(cyclopropyl)methyl-4,8,diazaundecane] is demonstrated to be a result of newly synthesized mRNA and protein. Inhibition of new RNA synthesis by actinomycin D inhibits both the appearance of SMO(PAOh1) mRNA and enzyme activity. Similarly, inhibition of newly synthesized protein with cycloheximide prevents analogue-induced enzyme activity. Half-life determinations indicate that stabilization of SMO(PAOh1) protein does not play a significant role in analogue-induced activity. However, half-life experiments using actinomycin D indicate that CPENSpm treatment not only increases mRNA expression, but also leads to a significant increase in ...
