Depression
Mood disorders are a category of mental health problems including depression and bipolar disorder (The Ohio State University Medical Center, 2011). According to The Ohio State University Medical Center (2011), “The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports that research indicates that depression onset is occurring earlier in life today than in past decades.” Depression is described as a low, sad state in which life is a dark, challenging, overwhelming place to be. There will be many people that will go through a depressive stage some point in their life and be able to move past it. However, there are people that are unable to move past this part in their life and will have depression for most of their life and can be diagnosed as having unipolar depression. Others can suffer from mania. Mania is the complete opposite of depression where a person has extreme excitement and euphoria about life. Then there is a small group of people that suffer from mania and depression known as bipolar disorder.
Unipolar Disorder
Between 5 and 10 percent of adults in the United States will suffer from severe unipolar depression. Women are twice as likely to experience severe depression then men (Comer, 2005). Depression not only affects a person emotionally, but can affect a person behaviorally, cognitively, physically, and motivationally. Many people will feel sad, gloomy, dark, miserable, and empty when they are experiencing an episode of depression. These episodes can affect daily act ivies because a person will not have a desire to want to do anything and would rather stay in bed all day and do nothing at all. A person can neglect family, friends, social events and even neglect to eat while going through a depressive episode. Suicide is a…...

... I needed. I was nineteen years old when I graduated from my fifth year in high school and it was the last time I saw any of my friends. It has been four years since I have seen any of them, but I have talked to one. Joanna McCarty. I call her a true friend unlike my other friends. Sure, they have done stuff for me. Sure, they have given me advice once in a while. Sure, they have kept me company. But no one can be compare to Joanna. She actually gave me advice and comforted me. I help her in return when she wanted it. I taught her how to draw. We talk on DA, Skype, Tumblr, and Facebook. We try keeping up with each other even though I am twice more busy then she is. I don’t quite know what job she is working or what college she is going to, but I do know she is one hell of an artist. I sighed and began to grin to myself. I remember how she uses to say how much she sucks at drawing, but she was really great at coloring. A few lessons and pushing confidence into her she became a better artist then me. She currently draws cute chibis as for adoptables. Once in a while she’ll post a chibi up there for me. To show me she is still supporting me and my reality and I’ll show her the same thing when I have time to draw, scan it, and color it. Midnight got up and jumped down from the couch and went to the litter box. I sat up slowly and then stood up to stretch. I look around in my tiny apartment. It was nice and it had enough stuff in here for me. I promised my mother I wouldn’t...

...Texting Should be Illegal While Driving Carlos Sosa Professor J. Votto English 112 Y February 3, 2011 Texting Should be Illegal While Driving Thesis: Texting while driving should be illegal because of the dangers brought on to the person who is texting and to other drivers. I. The first reason why it should be illegal is because this is a major distraction while behind the wheel of a moving vehicle. A. Many accidents today are caused by distracted drivers. 1. One distraction is texting and the result is not seeing the car in front slam on ones brakes resulting in rear ending and possibly injuring the other driver as well as the guilty texter. 2. This distraction reduces ones reaction time as well as limits visibility for upcoming obstacles. B. There are many more dangers of texting. 1. Texting not only puts other drivers in danger but also pedestrians walking down the street. 2. Texting drivers could possibly hit children playing in school zones or in their front yard. 3. Driving through a fence and damaging private property is another possible result in texting while driving.. 4. The damage cause by texting can be permanent, “no text message is worth risking your life or the lives of those riding with you” (Grooms, 2010) II. Another danger of texting is not seeing obstacles that could seriously injure or end one’s life. A. Many of the accidents while texting are driving off the road crashing in to obstacles. B...

...Montgomery, James E. "Ibn Fadlan and the Rusiyyah". Journal of Arabic and Islamic Studies vol. 3 (2000) pp. 1-25. ISSN: 0806-198X. Ibn Faḍlān's account of the caliphal embassy from Baghdad to the King of the Volga Bulghārs in the early fourth/tenth century is one of our principal, textual sources for the history, ethnogenesis and polity formation of a number of tribes and peoples who populated Inner Asia. Of especial significance is his description of a people whom he calls the Rūsiyyah. Attempts to identify this people have been the stuff of controversy for almost two centuries and have largely focused on how this description can be made to contribute to the Normanist Controversy (the principal, but by no means the only, controversy concerns the extent of Viking involvement in the creation of Russia). This article provides a fresh, annotated translation of Ibn Faḍlān's passage and considers a multiplicity of identities for the Rūsiyyah. Ibn Faḍlān’s account of his participation in the deputation sent by the Caliph al-Muqtadir in the year 921 A.D. to the King of the Bulghārs of the Volga, in response to his request for help, has proved to be an invaluable source of information for modern scholars interested in, among other subjects, the birth and formation of the Russian state, in the Viking involvement in northern and eastern Europe, in the Slavs and the Khazars. It has been analyzed and commented upon frequently and forms the substance of many observations on the...

...Do not talk to the Parrot By Francis Kong Susan’s washing machine quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, “I’ll leave the key with my next door neighbor. Fix the washing machine, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll have somebody send you the payment. “Oh, by the way, don’t worry about my Rottweiler. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot! I REPEAT, DO NOT TALK TO MY PARROT!!!” When the repairman arrived at Susan’s apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest-looking Rottweiler he had ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his work.  The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling and name calling. Finally, the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid, ugly bird!” To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!” That’s what happens to people who do not follow instructions. Following instructions is simply discipline in action. Discipline is inevitable. We either discipline ourselves, or life brings other people to do it for us. Don’t you hate those awful pink fences that line up the major streets in our Metropolis?

...Whitney Mantel Assignment 4 BIS 361, Fall 2013 To Telecommute or Not to Telecommute: A Critical Review Telecommuting is a work arrangement in which employees to not commute to a central place of work. As you may know there are many advantages and disadvantages to this, as there are to many things in life. First, one of the most important advantages is how much money will be saved for both the employer and employee. For the employee, you would save on gas and other car expenses because they would not have to drive to and from there office everyday, and it would add hours to their days by eliminating the commute. Other expenses like clothing, restaurant lunches, parking fees, and tolls would drop. Telecommuting could also reduce stress and health problems because the employee would be able to have greater flexibility to balance work and their personal life. Since no one gets meaningful work done in short periods of time, there will be greater productivity at home because there will be more long stretches of uninterrupted time. The employer would benefit from telecommuting similarly by saving money, but on real estate. They could decrease the amount of office space because don’t need big offices if most employees are working from home. This would also limit equipment costs because when their employees work from home they often use there own computers, papers, faxes and phones. The employer who is trying to withhold talented employees that are trying to manage family...

...In this report I will be talking about productivity. Productivity is an economic measure of output per unit of input. Inputs include labour and capital, while output is typically measured in revenues and other GDP components such as business inventories. Productivity measures may be examined collectively (across the whole economy) or viewed industry by industry to examine trends in labour growth, wage levels and technological improvement.  Productivity gains are vital to the economy because they allow us to accomplish more with less. Capital and labour are both scarce resources, so maximizing their impact is always a core concern of modern business. Productivity enhancements come from technology advances, such as computers and the internet, supply chain and logistics improvements, and increased skill levels within the workforce. Productivity is measured and tracked by many economists as a clue for predicting future levels of GDP growth. Theory of the Firm To understand how firms make decisions, we must analyse the relationship that exists between profit, revenues, and costs – a relationship sometimes referred to as the Theory of the Firm. The Theory of the Firm assumes that producers are all profit maximizers. Adam Smith’s “invisible hand” of self-interest leads them to increase their revenues and decrease their costs in order to increase their profits. The theory of the firm is always being re-analyzed and adapted to suit changing economies and markets. Early economic...

...The main argument being made in the article is that teenagers and binge drinking has lead to many horrible consequences because they do not know their limits and having to reply on text and social media to remember what happened the night before has became ridiculous. They end up raped and this article mainly emphasizes binge drinking with teenage girls. They are the main targets because they are more defenseless than guys. She uses the evidence that one in every five teenage girls ages 15, 16, and 17, have four or more drinks in a single session. In occasional binge drinking, about half of 10th grade teenage girls drink more than 60% of seniors. Unfortunately, there have been many cases where girls have been raped due to their exceeding limit of drinking. This related to Hennikans article because it argues that having the drinking age to 21 has given opposite responses by causing and influencing more underage drinking. In college there are always going to be parties and of course drinking as well therefore it is an easier access for teens to drink. It has become something normal to them because now it just seems like everyone is doing it, which is bad. After reading both articles I have reasons for lowering it to 18 and keeping it to 21, but I feel like keeping it would be the best option. By lowering the drinking age to 18, there will be an even higher rate of underage drinking because most people who are 18 are still in high school. For this being, they will throw...

...PART I: PERSONAL VALUES My top 5 values are: 1. Integrity: The first and most important trait of a leader. Integrity gives a leader validity to always do the right thing. I have a deeper meaning stemming from my family that makes it crucial that I keep integrity first if I desire others to emulate my actions. 2. Loyalty: Loyalty is the trait of a good listener and friend to just be there when needed. This trait gives superiors a sense of commitment and purpose in making sure you are doing the request job to the best of your ability. You can hold yourself as you would others. 3. Decisiveness: When asked, what do we need to do? I believe I am a no nonsense leader that will tell the raw truth but give a clean resolution to the problem. I really pride myself on not being easily blinded from the truth. Having so many family members needing quick second responses, this is a trait I’m willing to exploit. 4. Selflessness: A leader development or fulfillment to his subordinates’ growth potential, despite his or her own. This gives the reverse of saying, “Do as I say and not as I do.” Putting the troops in a position to know that when given a job that you would do it as well. 5. Commitment: Commitment enforces cradle to grave job completion. A leader and father needs to be a person of their word, given them credibility. This...

...Part 1 of 2: What is Literature For? Watch this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RCFLobfqcw and accomplish to the following tasks: (1) Outline the main points raised in the video. (2) Explain at least three (3) Ways of Knowing (Language, Emotion, Imagination, Sense Perception, or Memory) that are most developed in the points raised in the video. I think that for the first video, the main point of it was that it was trying to emphasize the importance of literature, which has come to be underappreciated and taken for granted nowadays. It actually identified points such as literature helps us feel what others can’t really put into words for us, literature can help us see things in the perspective of others, how it appeals to our emotions and much more. Particularly, the idea on how literature can make us feel emotions like empathy and sympathy was very eye-catching. It gave me a thought that perhaps, through literature we actually develop a certain kind of outlook when doing things. It could even shape the actions we would do in certain situations. Overall, I think that the video wanted to ultimately point out the usefulness of literature we don’t really see. In this video, I also noticed around 3 points on the “ways of knowing”. In particular, I clearly saw the presence of emotion, imagination and language. To begin with, emotion was very evident. To quote, “It looks like literature wastes time, but is actually the ultimate time- saver.” How come? This is...

The article explains how motherboards started (1st IBM motherboard had only a processor and card slots which users plugged floppy drive controller and memory into the slots) to how they are so advanced now, boasting a wide variety of built-in features and how they directly affect computer capabilities and potential upgrades. The following is a list of topics that were presented in the article. * Form Factors * Socket for the microprocessor * The Chipset * The Basic Input/Output System chip * The Real Time Chip Clock * Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) * Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) * Integrated Drive Electronics (IDE) * Universal Serial Bus or FireWire * Memory slots * Redundant Array of Independent Discs (RAID) * PCI Express * Sockets (Pin Grid Array (PGA) & Land Grid Array (LGA) * Bus and bus speed * Memory and other features The following is a list of terms (with their definitions) presented in the article. * Form Factors; They are the shape or layout of a motherboard. * Chipset; It is the “glue” that connects the processor to the rest of the motherboard. * Basic Input/Output System; B.I.O.S.

The Right Stuff

...The Right Stuff No two people are the same. Everyone has their own dreams and aspirations, strengths and weaknesses, fears and dreams. What can motivate one person may not appeal to the next, and vice versa. Imagine coaching a high school basketball team. Each member has a position and is responsible for certain tasks, like setting up the offense, rebounding, setting picks, etc. To get the team to practice and play hard, and to execute the game plan, the coach has to motivate the team. Although they may all have the same goal of winning, their motivation can be as varied as the personalities. Some of the players may be playing to attract college scouts in order to earn scholarships for college, others may be motivated by the prestige or popularity that being on the team brings, or they simply love the sport and want to play it as much as they can. Whatever the motivation, the coach has to be aware of each player and what drives them to keep them motivated to put forth their best effort on the court. This awareness of his players will determine the type of game plan the coach implements, using his team’s strengths to the fullest. Not all coaches utilize the same methods to motivate their players. For example, when Phil Jackson was an NBA coach, he was called “The Zen Master” because he uses a cerebral approach to coaching. He relied on his relationship with the players and motivated them in more subtle ways. Rarely would you see him yelling at the players and...
