People with Mental Health Disorders at Risk for Heart Attack and Stroke.

This article talked about people with mental and behavioral disorders being twice as likely to have heart disease or strokes. The article states that cardiovascular congress of Canada did a study about how this could be possible. The population is already at risk for stroke and heart attack, but if you have a mental disability the chance is greater. There were also some doctors that surveyed and explored data from the Canadian community. They were looked at and then there was an association between the cardiovascular risk and disease, and mental health disorders. They also looked at the uses of medications used for mental disorders as well. What the article showed was that people who have had mental health issues probably have heart disease. Those who have not had heart disease or stroke are more likely to be at a high long-term risk of developing it when compared to general population. People with psychiatric medications are twice as likely to have heart disease three times as likely to have a stroke. This study that they are speaking of are usually are for people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, major depression, anxiety, but the medications are looked upon as maybe having something to do with this diagnosis as well. The medications that the article spoke of were Antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and antipsychotic. There are 3 main factors that elevate the risk. People with mental and behavioral issues usually obtain bad habits according to the article. These habits consist of tobacco, smoking, alcohol, poor diet and physical in activity. Forty to ninety percent of people use Tabaco compared to general population. Medications for mental health can weight gain, they may cause…...

...An article (abbreviated art) is a word (or prefix or suffix) that is with a noun to indicate the type of reference being made by the noun. Articles specify the grammatical definiteness of the noun, in some languages extending to volume or numerical scope. The articles in the English language are the and a/an, and (in some contexts) some. 'An' and 'a' are modern forms of the Old English 'an', which in Anglian dialects was the number 'one' (compare 'on', in Saxon dialects) and survived into Modern Scots as the number 'ane'. Both 'on' (respelled 'one' by the Normans) and 'an' survived into Modern English, with 'one' used as the number and 'an' ('a', before nouns that begin with a consonant sound) as an indefinite article. Traditionally in English, an article is usually considered to be a type of adjective. In some languages, articles are a special part of speech, which cannot easily be combined with other parts of speech. It is also possible for articles to be part of another part of speech category such as a determiner, an English part of speech category that combines articles and demonstratives (such as 'this' and 'that'). In languages that employ articles, every common noun, with some exceptions, is expressed with a certain definiteness (e.g., definite or indefinite), just as many languages express every noun with a certain grammatical number (e.g., singular or plural). Every noun must be accompanied by the article, if any, corresponding to its definiteness, and the lack of...

...Memantine is the second type of drug-based treatment also one effective treatment for the Alzhermeir’s disease. Memantine can also be used to protect brain cells from damage caused by glutamate, a chemical messenger. Namenda is an example of a Memantine drug treatment was the first drug approved by FDA to treat the symptoms of moderate to severe Alzhermeir’s disease. For many years, some European countries use this drug in treating moderate to severe Alzheimer's disease ( Farlow MR, et al. 2003 ). It was functioning as a barrier to protect the brain's nerve cells against excess amounts of glutamate, a messenger chemical released in large amounts by the cells that had been damaged by Alzheimer's. American Health Assistance Foundation, in an article published in 2011 states that "When the glutamate attached to the cell surface "docking sites" called N-methyl-D aspartate (NMDA) receptor, calcium can flow freely into cells, which can lead to cell degeneration. Namenda may prevent this destructive sequence by adjusting the activity of glutamate". Memantine also has been proven to improve memory such as Alzhermeir's disease and it can be used alone or with other Alzheimer’s disease treatments such as Donepezil (Aricept) that was the only Cholinesterase Inhibitor approved to treat all stages of Alzheimer’s disease, including moderate to severe. There is some evidence when some of patients with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s who are taking a Cholinesterase Inhibitor might get benefit......

...In regards to the article above in which I have read and researched, it states that intellectual property is defined as “creations of the human mind.” Intellectual property rights are important to individuals, businesses, inventors, etc. The article discussed how intellectual property rights are legal rights which govern innovations. There are eight different types of intellectual properties which are all standardized by an agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPS). The author examined each of the eight intellectual property rights. To sum it up, intellectual property rights are used to protect the distinctive creations of businesses and individuals. The legal business issue that is represented in this article is an agreement of the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property. Intellectual property can be sold, purchased, hired or licensed. In each of these aspects, the properties need to be protected so others do not steal or misuse the creations of businesses or individuals. Businesses and the like have rights to protect their most vital assets and prosper from their creations and business developments. The best way to do so is by obtaining a patent. This article discusses the options TRIPS can provide protection of intellectual rights. A patent gives the legal rights to products. Trademarks are used to protect symbols or labels which could be the life line of a business. Undisclosed information is used for protecting the......

...What is a Scholarly Article? Meriam Library  California State University, Chico Many instructors at the college level require that you use scholarly articles as sources when writing a research paper. Scholarly or peer-reviewed articles are written by experts in academic or professional fields. They are excellent sources for finding out what has been studied or researched on a topic as well as to find bibliographies that point to other relevant sources of information. How can you determine if your article is scholarly and/or peer reviewed? 1. Consult the chart. The chart on the back lists the general criteria for determining what type of periodical article you have. Keep in mind that some articles do not meet all the criteria. When in doubt, consult a Reference Librarian or your instructor. 2. Limit your database search to academic, scholarly, or peer reviewed journals. Many databases allow you to limit your search to academic, scholarly, or peer reviewed journals (terminology varies between databases). Although limiting provides a preliminary filter, not all articles within a scholarly journal are scholarly, so you will need to evaluate each article individually against the criteria in the chart. 3. Ask a Librarian We can help you find a scholarly article or determine whether an article you have is scholarly. Get help in person at the Reference Desk on the 2nd floor of the library, or chat online at the Research Station http://www.csuchico.edu/library, or text to......

...Can the Brilliant Jerk Be Managed Effectively? By James Haskett JAMES HESKETT James Heskett is a Baker Foundation Professor, Emeritus, at Harvard Business School. ORIGINAL ARTICLE The annoying employee who makes his numbers while alienating those around him will gain needed attention in the coming months with at least one book about to be published on the subject. This is an age-old problem that most managers handle badly. You know the story by now. It concerns high-performing employees, known by some as "stars" and by others as "destructive heroes" or "brilliant jerks," those who generate a great deal of business while creating problems for colleagues. They are demanding to the point of being abusive, they make promises to clients that their colleagues cannot meet, they take too much credit for success, and they generally are unable to adhere to commonly shared values of members of the organization. The management response to this kind of situation is too often ineffective. By their own admission, their managers are reluctant to rock the boat as long as the numbers continue to be good. In doing so, they underestimate the costs to the organization, including the loss of other talent. And when they do act, they do so much too slowly, often after most of the damage has been done. Jack Welch has written about the phenomenon of what he calls "jerks" or "bullies" from his own experience. At GE they were referred to as a "Type 4" manager, "the person who delivers on......

...and none of these assignments will be marked. Furthermore, these students may be penalised or subjected to University disciplinary proceedings. PLAGIARISM: VERY IMPORTANT! While you are strongly encouraged to become familiar with a broad range of ideas, be very vigilant regarding plagiarism. Any idea or argument that you incorporate in your essays, if drawn from elsewhere, must be clearly attributed to its source (and this, very importantly, includes Internet sources). Remember that plagiarism is a serious offence and, while often committed inadvertently, will result in zero per cent being awarded for submitted work. Please read the detailed explanation given below very carefully: * If you copy something out of a book, an article, a website or another document without acknowledging its source, and pass it off as your own, that constitutes plagiarism. In effect, you are stealing something that belongs to someone else, dishonestly pretending that it is your own. * If you paraphrase material (i.e. change the wording slightly) or use ideas or a line of argument without acknowledging the original source, this also constitutes plagiarism and the same severe penalty will apply. * It is not enough to cite sources in the bibliography at the end of your essay. You must refer to these in the body of your essay, in brackets, next to every statement that is based on borrowed formulations or ideas. * The Disciplinary Code for Students (2004) is......

The Article

...be taken over by his “superego” and eventually taken back over by his “ego.” Our journey starts with the young man, the narrator, telling us his story. The young man is a caretaker of an old man who is really old and has a diseased eye. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” the young man starts out by loving the old man very deeply. He takes care of his every need, until one day “ the old man’s eye fell upon him and his blood ran cold”(Poe 2). The young man then turned to his narcissistic ways and it changed the way he felt about the old man whom “he loved so dearly” (Poe 1). In “ Explanation of: ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ by Edgar Alan Poe,” which was rewritten by an unknown author, it explains how the narrator is a “paranoid schizophrenic”(pg. 1). The article explains how Edgar Alan Poe was obsessed with “death, madness, and troubled human relationships” (pg. 1). The narrator is definitely a man caught between normality and psychopath. Further more the young man goes on to “spy on the old man every night for a week” (Poe 3). In doing this, the young man is letting his “id” take over his thoughts and actions. Chua brings up a good point in “An overview of ‘The Tell-Tale Heart,” stating that the “old man and the young man are one in the same person” (Chua 2). This is a good point because the young man is “spying on the old man for a week, opening the door each night a little at a time” (Poe 5). This brings a little light to the situation explaining why the old man does not catch the young......

Dualismul, Curent Filozofic Si Religie

...una de alta, pentru ca astfel sa se ajunga la o alta afirmatie cu continut epistemologic superior), deoarece primele sunt stabile si exclusive in mod reciproc si ultimele sunt dinamice, intotdeauna tinzand spre sinteza. Dualismul explica o situatie data sau un domeniu, prin intermediul a doi factori sau principii opuse. Dualismul incorporeaza mai multe forme de Monism (conceptie conform careia in Univers exista o singura substanta, temei pentru tot ceea ce exista.), inclusiv fizicalismul (cunoscut si ca „materialism”, dar care odata cu evolutia stiintelor fizice, a ajuns sa incorporeze notiuni mult mai sofisticate decat materia, cum ar fi relatie dintre unda si particula si fortele non-materiale produse de particule) si fenomenalismul (un curent filozofic conform caruia obiectele fizice nu exista ca atare, ci ca fenomene perceptive sau stimuli senzoriali cu diverse localizari in timp si spatiu). Dualismul e opusul materialismului, deoarece considera ca dincolo de realitatea fizica, exista o realitate psihica/spirituala si ca existenta fiintelor noastre nu e limitata doar la corp. Fiinta si devenirea lui Platon, forma si materia lui Aristotel, numenul si fenomenul lui Kant, yin si yang din filozofia chineza si chestiunile traditionale despre Dumnezeu si om, spatiu si timp, si natura si nutrire sunt printre alte dualisme faimoase. Dualismul metafizic afirma ca faptele universului sunt cel mai bine explicate in termenii elementelor ireductibile in mod reciproc. Acestia sunt......

Discovery in Labor Arbitration Laura J.Cooper* The mere statement of the topic, discovery in labor arbitration, suggests a paradox. Is not the essence of the arbitration process an effort to avoid the procedural complexities that make litigation comparatively slow and costly? More than forty years ago, Learned Hand admonished a litigant distressed with the procedural failings of an arbitration proceeding: Arbitration may or may not be a desirable substitute for trials in courts; as to that the parties must decide in each instance. But when they have adopted it, they must be content with its informalities; they may not hedge it about with those procedural limitations which it is precisely its......

...In this article, it goes into detail about what executive search consultants do and how they should act. Executive search is basically moving a person from one firm to another. This process is not as easy as it is said. “The profession is not regulated,” meaning there are gray areas as to the standards and what is off limits. Presidents and CEOs of executive search consultants firms in the article talk about maintaining a professional stand and remaining loyal to the clients, not the candidates. Executive search consultants are meant to help find candidates for clients and not take away people from the company they are helping. Also they should not practice “parallel processing,” which is basically having a candidate for two different clients. Executive search consultants also have to “take care not to misrepresent themselves, their clients or the candidates during the search process” Each candidate has to be treated fairly to avoid a candidate not being chosen due to discrimination. Nowhere is perfect, there will be some search consultants who have favorites and try to get them selected instead, but all firms should be striving to avoid that practice.

...Rebuttal Article Rebuttal Jeff Holliday BCOM/275 Article Rebuttal In a rebuttal to the article “Obama is a great president; we’re just a lousy country, I would like to analyze the reliability, credibility, and validity of the data used by the author, as well as identify any logical fallacies in the argument. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in 2009, when President Obama signed the stimulus package into law, he promised a six percent unemployment rate by this time. Granted, a drop has been seen in the unemployment, but what the author does not seem to realize is the number of Americans who have stopped looking for work. The Department of Labor has reported an unemployment rate of 8.2 for the month of March 2012. The actual unemployment or U-6 rate as of March is hovering at 14.5 percent. Many argue that it has become so easy to gain government benefits, that looking for work is no longer a priority. The President needs to limit benefits to push people to search for work or take jobs that may not be their first choice. Unfortunately, many Americans have become so discouraged with the lack of performance from the current administration that the author has come to this conclusion. The author of this article has a clear bias to what the President has or has not accomplished to date. Fallacies used within the article would include generalizing Americans as lazy and obese. He states the Obama has given Americans all of the tools to succeed, but Americans just......
