Most widely held works by John Snow
Stoney NF12( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Stoney are Siouan-speaking and are located in the northwestern portion of the Plains/Prairie on five reserves in Alberta, Canada. Traditional economic pursuits were hunting, fishing, trapping, and gathering. This file consists of eight documents that cover the period from the eighteenth century to the 1970s. Although most of these works deal with specific bands of Stoney, the studies by Larner and Snow probably provide the best overview of these people. Larner presents a brief general ethnography of the Alberta Stoney. Snow's work centering on the Morley Reserve, located west of Calgary in Alberta, is an in-depth ethno-historical study of the Stoney over a period of 100 years (1876-1976). This work describes the traditional life of the Stoney prior to white contact, and the period following Treaty No. 7, with the emphasis on relations with the federal and provincial governments in Canada. Snow, a Stony chief, is also an ordained minister of the United Church of Canada, and a great-great grandson of one of the signatories of Treaty No. 7. Andersen's works all deal with the Alexis band located at Lac Ste. Anne in Alberta, and are primarily historical in content with some inter-mixture of ethnography. The studies by MacEwan are biographical sketches of three prominent Stoney men -- Hector Crawler, Walking Buffalo, and Bearspaw

In the second of two programmes; Jon Snow and Dr Christian Jessen follow an officially licensed trial in which 25 people took MDMA, the pure form of the recreational drug ecstasy, for scientific study. Split between footage of the trial and a live studio discussion the programme aims to discuss the effects and potential risks of MDMA. The designers of the trial were Professor David Nutt and Professor Val Curran. The objective was to provide clinical evidence of its effects on the brain. This programme further investigates the effects of MDMA, and potential clinical including the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The programme discovers what recreational users can learn from the trial before discussing MDMA's classification as a Class A drug and possible long-term effects. Professor Nutt recounts the aims to understand where ecstasy works in the brain, and find out If these brain changes might be translatable into clinical benefits. Curan is interested in the effect MDMA has on interpersonal trust, and how this might be harnessed in psychological therapy. Ecstasy seized at Glastonbury festival is tested and the results show a third of pills had no MDMA. Instead they contained other legal psychoactive chemicals that mimic MDMA but can be very dangerous, The other two thirds contained varying doses of MDMA which had been cut with a filler. In the studio Snow discusses the comedown from MDMA, commonly known as {u2018}The Tuesday Blues{u2019}. The increase of serotonin in the brain leads to euphoria, however MDMA also impedes serotonin replishment by three to four days and this leads to a lack of the chemical which in turn causes negative feelings. Professor Andrew Parrot and Philip Murphy argue the side effects of MDMA; low mood states, poor memory and depression can be long term, however Curran and Nutt dismiss this. The {u2018}Tuesday Blues{u2019} were not present in this trial and Nutt attributes this to the medical setting, arguing mood effects are influenced by situation and consumption of other drugs. Dr Adam Winstock discusses the risks of prescription drugs arguing they are affected by the way in which they are used. There is footage of an illegal underground therapy session in America in which patient Danielle uses MDMA to help cure her PTSD. After the therapy Danielle recognises an overall reduction in her day-to-day anxiety and is convinced after a decade of ineffective conventional treatment MDMA is finally helping her overcome her PTSD. Nutt reveals findings from the trial which suggest MDMA shuts down the pre frontal cortical region of the brain and in turn decreases the brains response to negative memories. Nutt argues this could allow people to engage with traumatic memories without the emotional overlay. Footage of Hayley{u2019}s trial examines how MDMA has helped her deal with and overcome her own PTSD through full memory recall of the trigger incident. Snow discusses with the audience their experiences with MDMA and how it had emotionally effected them. Snow and Jensen round off the programme by discussing the results of a national survey on drugs and address questions from the audience
