Lay my burden down : unraveling suicide and the mental health crisis among African-Americans by Alvin F Poussaint( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the historical, cultural, and social factors that have led to what they term "posttraumatic slavery syndrome," the legacy of mental anguish linked to the brutal traumas inflicted on African-Americans during slavery and its aftermath. Discusses the practical signs to look for when dealing with depression, where to find help, and the differing needs of black men and women. Proposes the need to look again at abuse, gunplay, and illness including HIV, as examples of self-destructive, suicidal behavior
The Farrakhan factor : African-American writers on leadership, nationhood, and minister Louis Farrakhan( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nation of Islam's Minister Louis Farrakhan is undeniably one of the most controversial, provocative, and misunderstood figures in American social and cultural politics. Now, for the first time, leading African-American intellectuals and writers come together to respond to Farrakhan, the myth and the reality, in the process reexamining and redefining notions of black nationalism, community, and African-American leadership. The Farrakhan Factor gets past the headlines and sound bites, to examine Minister Farrakhan's impact from the standpoints of economics, media analysis, community activism, ethnic identity, sexual politics, and black youth culture. The commentators gathered here place Farrakhan in context: from Gwendolyn Brooks's lyrical and insightful reflections on Farrakhan the man; to Stanley Crouch's uncompromising indictment of Farrakhan as overhyped and out of touch; from Michael Eric Dyson's examination of the heritage that prepared Farrakhan for leadership; to Derrick Bell's discussion of the anguish and unfulfillment Farrakhan addresses in many black Americans. The sixteen essays collected here combine sophisticated thought with active, personal engagement to candidly examine this enigmatic and increasingly important voice

Essays on gender, migration, and development by Manuel Pedro Duarte Santos Silva( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation focuses on the relationship between gender equality and economic development, broadly defined. Since the seminal work of Ester Boserup (1970), gender equality is widely understood as being both an instrument for and a consequence of economic development. The first three chapters of this thesis revolve around two fundamental questions. What are the consequences of gender inequality for economic development? (Chapter 1.) And what are its causes-i.e., why do we observe gender inequality in all societies, although to different extents? (Chapters 2 and 3.) As argued in the thes
Essays on Women's Empowerment in Developing Countries by Jana Lenze( )

2 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women's empowerment has been identified as a prerequisite for poverty reduction. In addition to driving overall economic growth, women's empowerment has been found to have beneficial effects on fertility rates, child health and education outcomes, as well as community development. This thesis aims to explore various factors that foster women's empowerment, as well as linkages between different dimensions of women's empowerment. Each of these chapters addresses specific research questions in order to contribute to a better understanding of the processes underlying social and economic dimensi

Examining the relationship between mental workload and situation awareness in a simulated air combat task by Amy Alexander( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seven pilots participated in an experiment designed to assess the relationship between mental workload and situation awareness. Participants flew simulated air intercepts against four bombers supported by two fighters. The experiment contrasted two cockpit designs. The conventional cockpit used traditional independent gauges for flight and tactical information. The virtually augmented candidate cockpit used advanced interface concepts. The task scenario consisted of four mission phases that were designed to influence pilot mental workload and situation awareness. An inverse relationship was observed between mental workload and situation awareness as influenced by cockpit design and phase of mission. This shows the importance of assessing both mental workload and situation awareness when assessing system effectiveness

Emerging roles for the novel estrogen-sensing receptor GPER1 in the CNS( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Estrogens play a key role in regulating reproductive and neuroendocrine function by activating classical nuclear steroid receptors that act as ligand gated transcription factors. However evidence is growing that estrogens also promote rapid non-genomic responses via activation of membrane-associated estrogen receptors. The G protein-coupled estrogen receptor (GPER1; also known as GPR30) has been identified as one of the main estrogen-sensitive receptors responsible for the rapid non-genomic actions of estrogen. In recent years, our understanding of the CNS actions of GPER1s has significantly increased following the development of selective pharmacological tools and via the use of transgenic technologies to knockout GPER1 in mice. Here we review recent advances that have been made to uncover the role of GPER1s in the CNS. This article is part of the Special Issue entitled 'Lipid Sensing G Protein-Coupled Receptors in the CNS'. Highlights: GPER1s are estrogen-sensitive receptors mediating the rapid non-genomic actions of estrogen. GPER1s are enriched in the brain and is highly expressed at synapses. GPER1s rapidly regulate hippocampal dendritic morphology and synaptic plasticity. Higher brain functions such as learning and memory are influenced by GPER1s. The neuroprotective actions of estrogens are linked to GPER1 activation

Discordant Umbilical Cord Drug Testing Results in Monozygotic Twins( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Our laboratory received segments of umbilical cord that originated from identical twins for routine toxicology analysis. The specimens were analyzed multiple times by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry. The umbilical cord from newborn #1 was positive for hydromorphone only (1.06 ng/g), and the umbilical cord from newborn #2 was positive for hydromorphone (0.81 ng/g) and benzoylecgonine (5.41 ng/g). The hydromorphone results are consistent with maternal administration of hydromorphone; however, the cause of the discrepant benzoylecgonine results in the umbilical cords from the identical twins is unknown
