The concern of the study is to know the long-term result of MBCT with the use of standardized measures of depressions (BDI-II), mindfulness (MAAS), and rumination (RSS) and the outcomes are collected yearly for 3 years. Thirty-nine participants were observed and the results showed a significant decrease in depression. Although the depression scores for the last year increased, it was still inside the normal range of BDI-II. Rumination and mind attention showed a strong negative correlation which means as rumination increases, the mind attention decreases and vice versa. It was therefore concluded that continued MBCT aids and training can help relapse prevention.
This book is written in first and third person in an objective style. This style fits the subject very well because in history, facts are much more important than feelings. The book was written very well, but at some times it is hard to understand because it may be in a different languages, use obsolete words, or just use words that aren’t very well known. The book is fairly concise, but sometimes can get a bit lengthy. Overall, the book is fairly easy to understand.
The Insight of Native Americans in Sherman Alexie’s Jackson Jackson According to the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 11.7 percent of Native Americans and Alaska Natives deaths between 2001 and 2005 were alcohol-related, compared with 3.3 percent for the U.S. as a whole, more than three times the percentage of the general population. Native Americans are overrepresented in the homeless population by approximately 19 percent by a study of Department of Veterans Affairs Health Care for Homeless Veterans program. Jackson Jackson, in “What You Pawn I Will Redeem” by Sherman Alexie, embodies the above study. Unlike the traditional heroes who mostly win the fights, make all the right decisions, can do almost everything, and have perfect characteristics like bravery, strength, charm, Alexie portrays the protagonist, Jackson Jackson as a modern anti-hero who is very complicated. Within twenty-four hours, Alexie expresses Jackson Jackson representing the Native American experiences, “Spokane Indian boy”
Instead, the author contends that the rumors of mass hysteria were perpetrated by newspapers through yellow journalism in want of advertising dollars, and an unprofessional report that used a contested survey method to find out how many listeners heard the broadcast. The article details a PBS program created for the 75th anniversary of the War of the Word’s broadcast, and then breaks the PBS program down to refute various details and facts presented in the show, including how many people were listening, how the myth was popularized, and the effect it had on the public. Using reports made by the CBS executive Frank Stanton, explains amount of people listening to program was in fact nominal, and the few that listened only believed it was a prank; the myth arose from jealous newspaper companies, who set out to vilify the show in an attempt to regain advertising dollars that were being lost to radio, and the myth would have faded away without a report by a respected scholar validating the reports. This article is important because it presents an opposing view from the others and portrays how the media affects the greater opinion of the public. It 's from a current events magazine, but the authors are both scholarly and have wrote a book about the subject so I will use
The ultimate purpose of Roosevelt's speech was to appeal to anyone who didn't get adequately paid when working in the corporations (New Nationalism speech 1910). He wanted these men to earn what they deserved (New Nationalism speech 1910). Roosevelt’s speech is mainly about how the United States found itself transformed fundamentally after the Civil war and how the war resolved the problem of slavery (New Nationalism speech 1910). It seemed to open new birth of freedom as Abraham Lincoln had hoped, but the potential of American industry had been unleashed, which brought challenges to the country due to new economic and social problems on a national scale (B&N). He tried to stop the big corporations from gaining power (B&N).
Incarceration rates have skyrocketed over the last forty years-- which could be interpreted as good or bad. There have been many questions surrounding incarceration directly being linked to a drop in crime rate: both positive and negative. One pair of economical authors, Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner, approached this concept from a mostly-positive outlook: the high incarceration rate was responsible for one-third of the crime drop in the 1990’s (123-124). The authors use high incarceration rate along with innovative police strategies, plummet of the crack market, and aging in the population to make a base argument of reasons for crime drop; however, the main argument they utilize is the legalization of abortions (Levitt and Dubner 120-121,
This shows the fact that the use of strong words can work for and against the author, depending on the reader’s original primary viewpoint. The mix of excellently excited argumentative techniques are enforced by this mistake, however. The small mistake allows for a more believable argument standpoint, and doesn't make the reader wonder if they aren't getting all of the information. The final paragraph excellently puts an end to an incredibly descriptive and convincing argument. The overall view of the writer is an easy one for the reader to adopt in the first place, and the argumentative skills of the writer make it exponentially easier to get
INTRODUCTION Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide in hospitalized patients. Cardiovascular morbidity and mortality increases exponentially from 75 years-old . Approximately, 30% of patients admitted for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) are over 75 years old, and represent 50% of ischemic heart disease mortality [2,3]. Elderly patients have a higher risk for AMI short- and long-term mortality than younger patients [4,5]. On the other hand, nonagenarians with AMI non admitted to Coronary Care Unit (CCU) are increasing progressively .
Open Adoptions negatively affect the mental and emotional health of adoptees. Adoption being the popular option, it is today started out with a small population of interest. As the years go on, the numbers in the United States alone increase significantly. From 1944 to 2012 the statistics have increasingly surpassed 50,000 (“Adoption” 1). This happened shortly after the ending of World War II, when international adoption became popular (“Adoption” 1).
1.0.6 Effects of aging on humans Many common characteristic features of aging are observed by most of humans during their life span from birth to death, few of them as listed below: • The ability to hear high frequency sounds above 20kHz is lost in teenage years. • After a peak in cognitive performance a progressive decline begins and continues here after in the mid 20s. • Photoaging causes wrinkles particularly affecting the sun exposed areas by the age of 30. • There is a sharp decline in female fertility after age 35. • Presbyopia in eyes becomes apparent in the mid
These more seasoned sources were doing as well as could be expected with the data they needed to work with and quite a bit of what is in them is still profitable. The main far reaching forward source on the Jumano I know of is the book, "The Jumanos", by Nancy Hickerson, University of Texas Press. Hickerson benefits a vocation of putting the more established data in another point of view and dealing with and wiping out clashing information. Genuine understudies would improve to peruse Hickerson to start with, then read the more seasoned sources in light of Hickerson 's new material.
1.6 Alcohol relapse Alcohol relapse is the situation in which the person is returning to the previous pattern of alcohol use usually followed by the period of abstinence. Many studies have documented high rates of relapse upto 65-80 percent in the first year of treatment among substance dependents(Vyas and Ahuja 2008).It is a perplexing situation among the substance abusers. Eventhough there are dramatic advancements in the treatment modalities, client compliance is generally poor and response to a drug or alcoholic use is a common occurrence (Kumar, 2014). The major research finding of substance dependence treatment outcome is relapse with approximately 66 percent returning to drinking by the 90th day follow-up assessment. However a variety
A. Ageism- prejudice towards people based on their age (Moody, 13). With the life expectancy nearly doubling over the past 100 years, more and more Americans are surpassing the 65-year age landmark. In a survey of people age 60 and above, 80% reported experience with ageism (Dittmann, 2003). Ageism has harm on the mentality of the aging American. Those exposed to positive stereotypes of aging lived 7.5 years longer than those with negative perception to aging.
Substance Abuse and the Elderly Shayla Henderson-Young, B.S.N., RN, CCMC, MAJ ANC Uniformed Services University, Bethesda, MD Epidemiology The increasing prevalence of substance abuse amongst the older adult (geriatric) population is cause for concern (Wu & Blazer, 2011). There are over 700 million adults ages 60 and above worldwide (Wang et al., 2013). According to (Ortman, Velkoff, & Hogan (2014), in 2012 there were approximately 43.1 million adults over the age of 65 and estimated to double 83.7 million by 2050. The shift in demographics is largely due to the progressive decline in procreation while life expectancy has increased. Advancements in health care have increased the life expectancy, of the aging baby boomer generation.
It is evident that the complexity and directness of Nunez’s work shows that her article is more suitable for readers that are much more educated and are more interested in reading about facts rather than opinions and personal statements. This can be concluded by the numerous amount of undeveloped facts which were written by Nunez on her article. Meza, however, targets a much easier going set of readers. The language is calm and simple and is used to develop a less numerous amount of facts. Furthermore, the usage of personal experiences and stories (anecdote) varies in the two articles provided.
