  • How is this similar to the cultural appropriation of Native images and practices by the New Age movement? I will use the example of one practice, “the vision quest,” a ritual found in Lakota culture.... When this ritual is brought into New Age context, its meaning and power are altered. The focus shifts to white people’s needs and vision, which in most New Age venues are about individual growth and prosperity. There is no accountability to a community, particularly any Native community.

  • Clinical Practice Guidelines According to the 1990 Institute of Medicine definition, clinical practice guidelines are "systematically developed statements to assist practitioner and patient decisions about appropriate health care for specific clinical circumstances." This definition provides emphasis to several crucial features of modern guideline development. First, guidelines are created using the tools of EBM. In particular, the core of the development process is a systematic literature search followed by a review of the relevant peer-reviewed literature.

  • While the bulk of the liquid is water, all of the flavor should be from the coffee. To achieve the same great quality cup of coffee you receive at a coffee bar, you need to use the same quality beans. Buy the beans fresh and whole, only about two weeks’ supply at a time for maximum freshness. Once the coffee bean is broken, its flavor degrades very quickly. That’s why the Grind & Brew™ grinds your coffee just prior to brewing. If it is not practical to buy small supplies, we recommend you separate larger...

  • In many situations a decision maker's outcome does not depend on his or her own choice alone but upon the choices of others. Investing in the stock market, crossing an intersection where there is opposing traffic, and playing poker are all examples. A game known as the “p-beauty-contest” has been widely used in economic studies to examine some of the simplest principles of interdependent decision making (Nagel 1995, Nagel 1999, Stahl 2001).

  • If you have a large number of participants then you should stagger their start times. This will help prevent people having to queue for ages to register and will ensure a steady flow of walkers starting off onto the streets/paths. Think carefully about your registration process. You may want to allocate staggered start times before the day, or you could advertise a start ‘window’ of two to three hours and ask people to queue and register as they arrive.

  • While there is much to learn about these risks, the temperatures that may result from unabated climate change will take the world outside the range of human experience. This points to the possibility of very damaging consequences. The impacts of climate change are not evenly distributed - the poorest countries and people will suffer earliest and most. And if and when the damages appear it will be too late to reverse the process. Thus we are forced to look a long way ahead.

  • In this paper, we first examine whether the decision to split before acquisition announcement is a common behavior among firms, or just a coincidence in some isolated cases. If a general pattern indeed exists, we will attempt to further investigate whether this behavior is motivated by acquirers’ intentions to manipulate stock prices before acquisition announcements to lower the costs of acquisitions. During our sample period (from 1980 to 2003), we find that acquiring firms are more likely than nonacquiring firms to split their common stocks before acquisition announcements.

  • The work we do is performed with compassion, care, humanity and humility. All my rabbits, when I worked with them years ago, were stroked and petted every day. Their contribution changed the understanding of ectopic pregnancy – the commonest cause of maternal death worldwide. My genetically modified rodents breed happily, and their offspring are indistinguishable from those of other rats and mice. Medical researchers are compassionate people seeking to alleviate pain and suffering. They are unlikely to do anything that is unnecessary or cruel.

  • It is thought that between a third and a half of all medicines1 prescribed for long-term conditions are not taken as recommended. If the prescription is appropriate, then this may represent a loss to patients, the healthcare system and society. The costs are both personal and economic. Adherence presumes an agreement between prescriber and patient about the prescriber’s recommendations. Adherence to medicines is defined as the extent to which the patient’s action matches the agreed recommendations.

  • This guideline offers best practice advice on how to involve patients in decisions about prescribed medicines and how to support adherence. All NICE clinical guidelines state that treatment and care should take into account patients’ needs and preferences and patients should have the opportunity to make informed decisions about their care and treatment, in partnership with their healthcare professionals. Good communication between healthcare professionals and patients is essential.

  • This is a book about the most fearsome disease of modern times, which will strike every fourth citizen of a developed country sometime during his life: cancer. It is not a book about the prevention of cancer, but rather its treatment with plant-derived chemicals. It is an up-to-date and extensive review of plant genera and species with antitumor and antileukemic properties that have been documented in a strictly scientific sense.

  • The small size of the private bond market also constrains its role. One of important benefits of a developed private bond market is that it can act as an alternative funding source when corporations’ access to overseas markets is limited or in the face of a domestic bank credit crunch. The disruption in the global money and credit markets in 2008 led to a liquidity squeeze for Brazilian corporations and financial firms.

  • Evidence-Based Medicine The "art of medicine" is traditionally defined as a practice combining medical knowledge (including scientific evidence), intuition, and judgment in the care of patients (Chap. 1). Evidence-based medicine (EBM) updates this construct by placing a much-greater emphasis on the processes by which the clinician gains knowledge of the most up-to-date and relevant clinical research. The key processes of EBM can be summarized in four steps: 1. Formulating the management question to be answered 2.

  • The second, developed through narcissism and the constitution of the ego, comes from identification with the image seen. Thus, in film terms, one implies a separation of the erotic identity of the subject from the object on the screen (active scopophilia), the other demands identification of the ego with the object on the screen through the spectator's fascination with and recognition of his like. The first is a function of the sexual instincts, the second of ego libido. This dichotomy was crucial for Freud.

  • In fact, existing regulation, both private and governmental, is working to punish the individual responsible in that case. However, a simple legal restriction on the number of embryos transferred would not be desirable. It is preferable that the clinical judgment of highly trained specialty physicians, brought to bear on the particular circumstances of each case and made with evidence-based national guidelines in mind, determine the course of treatment.

  • Some people have a heart attack and die from heart disease before they ever know they have the condition, before they have a chance to be disabled. In addition, individuals can move in and out of some of these health states: Disability and functioning loss may be transitory, and people can return to full functioning and ability. Whether chronic diseases are absorbing states from which there is no return to the healthy population depends somewhat on the condition. We do not think of cures from heart disease, but we do speak of cured cancer after some number of years have passed.

  • Ideally, multiple traits would be considered for selection, such as milk yield, AFC and longevity, to consider both production and functionality. Such a plan might be difficult to implement quickly, so, for more simplicity, evaluation could initially be based on ‘likeability’ scores assigned by the farmer. To evaluate likeability, farmers would be asked to assign an animal a score of from 1 to 5, where 1 and 5 indicate an extremely poor or good cow, respectively. Such a trait would comprise a mixture of productivity, reproduction and health.

  • Evidence-based medicine (EBM) has been famously characterized by David Sackett as the “conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about individual care.” The central notion in EBM of the importance of integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external evidence provides a helpful framework for providers navigating the uncertainty inherent in patient care.

  • In this paper we review the fiscal evolution of China and Russia, asking how the process of creating a separate, tax-financed public sector in the two countries differed. We observe that the size of China's budget sector was consistently smaller than in Russia and that budget decentralization was consistently greater. We see both pros and cons in China's decentralization. Local governments that were allowed to keep marginal increases in local tax revenue had incentives to pursue growth-supporting policies, including support for foreign investment and export-oriented production.
