The Misunderstood Disease

Filed under: Health — looking4good @ 1:37 am

There have been advances in many areas of medicine, yet mental illness remains both misunderstood and mistreated. Persons suffering from mental illnesses are still treated as if having mood or perception disorders means they are less intelligent and are incapable of knowing what they think or want.

In the United States, the current trend is to overmedicate people who show any signs of mental illness while ignoring the need for compassionate counseling. The trend of emergency personnel is still to become irritated with persons who arrive in the hospital with mental rather than physical issues.There is still no avenue for proper treatment of such individuals.

I have heard more than one health care professional say that they wished that people who came to the E.R. presenting with self-mutilation would just “do it right and get it over with.” This sort of uncompassionate lack of caring is but one reason why persons who are mentally ill are reluctant to get treatment.

Another is cost.Insurance does not provide for psychological counseling any better than it provides for “alternative” health care treatments such as chiropractic care. Many people who are mentally ill lack the resources to afford adequate counseling and the choice becomes to either go to the county mental health center, where the counselors are overworked and used to handling only critical cases, or to forego counseling entirely.

Cost aside, it is difficult to find a counselor that one can trust to treat them like a human being of equal worth rather than a defective second class citizen. Is it any wonder that so many people who are mentally ill go undertreated or untreated?

I went on the line and published my book because these issues need to be addressed–worldwide!I told the truth about the circumstances behind the creation of parts of the story because the spirit with whom I co-authored the book is one of the most shocking examples I’ve ever seen of how little mental illness is understood and how badly it’s stigmatized.

The general population needs to be better educated about mental illness, but more sadly still, our medical and even mental health professionals need to learn greater compassion in treating the widespread and diverse problems of sufferers.

When you buy a copy of my book, 50% of the profits are donated to the World Health Organization’s mental health division.
Please spread the word.

Na apresentação do Boavista quem se viu foi o Porto

Filed under: Boavista,FC Porto,Futebol — looking4good @ 1:27 am

Boavista

0 – 3


Porto

Sektoui goleador confirmou triunfo começado por Postiga

No Estádio do Bessa apresentava-se o Boavista mas foi o Porto que fez exibição convincente demonstrativa da riqueza do plantel portista. Com praticamente uma equipa de reservas, destacou-se a estreia do argentino Mariano Gonzalez. Foi nele aliás que nasceu o primeiro golo portista ao executar o centro da esquerda que sobrevoou um dos centrais boavisteiros permitindo a Postiga a conclusão de cabeça aos 23 minutos. Os homens do Bessa não se deram por vencidos e ainda na primeira parte ficaram dúvidas num lance na área portistade eventual falta de Paulo Emanuel sobre Linz que se preparava para finalizar de cabeça. Pediu-se penalty mas o árbitro não atendeu.

A segunda parte foi jogada com mais velocidade reentrando o Porto com cinco alterações que todavia não alteraram o seu melhor jogo colectivo, nascendo de uma boa jogada de entendimento ofensivo o segundo golo do Porto, com o cruzamento de Jorginho a ser desviado de cabeça para a assistencia que Tarik Sektoui aproveitou.

O resultado veio ainda a desnivelar-se mais numa jogada de contra-ataque em que o mesmo Sektoui surgiu pela meia esquerda e foi até ao fim rematando cruzado e batendo o guarda-redes axadrezado.

Um resultado que dá o triunfo ao Porto de modo claro ainda que se possa argumentar que por números exagerados se anotarmos um remate de Diakité à barra.

Seja como for Jaime Pacheco tem muito trabalho pela frente para formar uma verdadeira equipa pois é grande o número de entradas e saídas relativamente à última época que aliás esteve longe de ser do agrado dos adeptos.

Quanto ao Porto vê-se que mesmo com jogadores que não são das apostas de Jesualdo (Postiga e Tarik são jogadores frequentemente falados para sair do clube) tem um modelo de jogo já solidificado e continua a ter o favoritismo para a conquista do campeonato, principalmente agora que com a saída de Simão o Benfica queimou parte da mais-valia que conseguira com a contratação de Cardozo.

Noutro jogo da noite que serviu para a aptresentação do Sporting (e ao qual não assistimos)o Sporting não foi além dum empate a um golo frente ao Recreatuvo de Huelva com os leões a marcarem primeiro já nos últimos minutos por Carlos Paredes aos 84′ mas a sofrer o empate de penalty aos 88′ (Pongole).

Amanhã joga o Benfica no Egipto com o campeão africano El-Ahli, equipa treinada por Manuel José.

My KuWaiT

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 1:25 am

Hello all

I would like to speak about my Kuwait because many of you do not know anything about this small state ..

Kuwait is a small country (about 17,819 square kilometers) in the Middle East.
It has a small and rich economy. It has about 96 billion barrels of crude oil reserves. Crude oil reserves are the oil that is still under the ground and has not yet been cleaned up. Kuwait has 10% of all of the oil reserves in the world. The country makes a lot of money by selling oil. This money is almost half of all the money the country makes. The oil money is also 95% of the money made by selling things to different countries (people call that exports). Also, the oil money is 80% of the money the government makes. Kuwait is now talking with oil companies of other countries to make oil fields in the northern part of the country.

Kuwait’s weather makes farming hard (too little rain). Instead of farming, the country catches fish and buys food from other countries. About 75% of the country’s water to drink has to be distilled (have the salt removed) or purchased from other countries.

In 1990, Iraq invaded (brought an army in to fight against) Kuwait. This started the first Gulf War.

Kuwait’s official religion is Islam, although 15% of its population are Christian or Hindu. Arabic is mostly spoken in Kuwait but English is wide-spread among Kuwaitis (residents of Kuwait). Kuwait is one of the few nations that has education for every age.

Below is information about the people of Kuwait:

Population (in thousands) for 2004 2595. CBR(per 1000) for 2004 19.4. CDR (per 1000) for 2004 1.9. Growth Rate(%) for 1992-2002 2.1. the Total Fertility Rate for 2002 is 2.7. Percent population is living in urban in 2003 96.2.Per capita gross national income ($) 2002 612. Population Density( per square kilometer) in 2000 107.4 Infant Mortality Rate (per 1000)for 2005 9.95. Adult literacy rate (85%) female literacy rate (81%) (2002).
