Exploring the Implications of the Diagnosis Borderline Personality Disorder for Consumers and Analysing It's Criteria With Reference to it's Historical, Socio-Political and Cultural Context

The diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) has been chosen for the purpose of this assignment. In my own practice I have struggled with the ethical and moral questions that nursing clients with BPD in an inpatient setting have raised. It has given me much room for reflection and personal learning.

Throughout this assignment the history, and current DSM IV diagnostic category will be looked at critically. Also some alternatives for future inclusion pondered alongside the underlying power struggles between mental health professions that influence diagnoses. From this there will be some discourse on how these points directly affect consumers. In doing so, it is hoped that some illumination will come for my own practice.
Spitzer et al (1979) outline the debate for the inclusion of two new DSM III classifications, borderline personality and schizotypal personality, because at the time there was no agreement on their definition or the overall concepts.

Mexican Immigrants in the U.S

Mexican Immigrants in the U.S

Mexicans have a huge part in making up the population for Chicago today. The first few numbers of the Mexican immigration came in during the early 1900s, closer to 1910. They came for a few reasons, but mainly, they came because of the poor economic times during the Mexican Revolution during these times. This state of their departure doesn't really differ for the same reasons on why a lot of the mexican population leave their nation today. As they made their journey's over, they came with dreams of working in huge factories, which during these times, the industrial world was booming with business. When they arrived however, they were not put in industry work. They lacked experience and were therefore, put to work in the agricultural field. To this day, Mexican people are known for their work in this field. The early 1900s were somewhat rough for the mexican people who came for "A better life". One of these difficulties was finding homes for themselves.

Literature Review - The Efficacy of Acupuncture and Acupressure in Chronic Respiratory Conditions

Literature Review - The Efficacy of Acupuncture and Acupressure in Chronic Respiratory Conditions

Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine that is now becoming more accepted as a treatment modality for a variety of conditions here in the West. Although there is much disparity between eastern and western concepts by which acupuncture is believed to work, it has been found to useful and efficacious in the treatment of a number of conditions (WHO, 2002). Here in England approximately 7% of the adult population has received acupuncture (2) and the British Medical Acupuncture Society has among its members over 2000 doctors who use acupuncture in general hospital or general practice (3). To date much of the research conducted has concentrated on examining the efficacy of acupuncture on pain control and anti-emesis. A comparatively smaller number of studies have investigated the effect of acupuncture on various respiratory conditions, chiefly those of bronchial asthma and COPD.

Self-Esteem and Stress Management

Self-Esteem and Stress Management

Self-esteem can be defined as a “favourable global interpretation of oneself” (Baumeister, Smart, & Boden, 1996, p. 5). Low self-esteem has been linked to depression (Overholser et al., 1995; Ryan et al., 1987; Butler et al, 1994, Kernis et al, 1991), where negative life events/situations can activate negative evaluations of the self in those with labile self-esteem (DeHart & Pelham, 2007). Having low self-esteem has also been associated with persecutory delusions (Freeman et al., 1998) as individuals attribute negative events and disappointments to the intentional actions of others in an effort to protect themselves from negative beliefs about themselves (Bentall et al., 2001).

The Lyric Essay Represents a New Sub-Genre That at First Glance Seems Puzzling, For How Can Non-Fiction be a Creative Piece?

The Lyric Essay Represents a New Sub-Genre That at First Glance Seems Puzzling, For How Can Non-Fiction be a Creative Piece?

I stare out of the window, across the desolate fields that stretch into the distance. Brittle branches barely move in the stiff breeze; winter has descended upon the trees freezing them still. The gentle falling snow seduces me into a trance-like state. A pen sits lightly in my palm, rocking ever so slightly between my thumb and forefinger, barely tapping the oak desk I am seated behind. Writer's block consumes me. The concept of the lyric essay runs through my mind. What does it all mean? Where am I to begin?

There is no one definitive and clearly labeled box within which the term “lyric essay” can be placed into for this will mean many different things to many different writers (and readers for that matter), but for me it means a possibility to describe real events as I see them and as I choose to create them in my writing.

Paper on Different Superstitions

Paper on Different Superstitions

Superstition is a belief that one event leads to the cause of another one without any proof. Long time ago, human beings have so little knowledge about the whole world. So when some phenomenon happened, people don’t know what to do and how to explain them except believe in superstitions. That is the reason why there are so many different kinds of superstitions in the whole world. However as science developed, people don’t believe in superstition as much as in the past. The fact is that most of the phenomenon can be explained by science. But people still believe in some kinds of superstitions in modern times. For example, people always believe their lucky number and take the action when their lucky number appears. When you compare the superstitions in different countries, you will be surprised that every country has its own superstitions and the same superstitions in different countries may have different meanings.

First Communion Final Review – Bible Study

First Communion Final Review – Bible Study

Lesson Objective: The lesson objective is that that each student will be able to identify each icon with the key word as a summary of their preparation to receive their first Communion. Each key word is coupled with a pastoral interview question they will be asked to answer at the Lock-in.

Group Leader: The student handout does not have the questions. During the group time, provide the question for the students to write next to the key word (LAW) then review the bible reference and belief statement. If time allows, invite one student attempt to put the bible reference and belief statement in their own words. Remind them that at the First Communion Lock-in they will receive an icon with the corresponding questions for them to answer.

LAW: How does the law prepare us for first Communion?
Bible Reference: Hearing the Word of God, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” – Romans 3:23, prepares me to receive my first Communion.
Belief Statement: Using the Law as a personal mirror, I believe I am sinner in need of God’s forgiveness.

Paper on the Movie Schindler's List

Introduction:
Many movies have spawned from the events of the holocaust. None portray the events as boldly as Schindler’s List. In this film, the director Steven Spielberg brings you along for the ride as he portrays the horrors of the holocaust first hand. The story is set around a businessman named Oscar Schindler. Schindler is a cunning fellow who uses World War II for profit, but later uses it to save lives. He becomes influenced by the people around him in many different ways. He goes through a necessary transformation to understand the difference between good and bad and to save the lives of over 1,100 Jews. Oscar Schindler also managed to help others with hope, sympathy and necessary manipulation.

Molecular Marker Assisted Selection: A Vital Tool For Wheat Breeding

Molecular Marker Assisted Selection: A Vital Tool For Wheat Breeding

Wheat (Triticum spp.) is a cereal grain, cultivated worldwide. It is the second most-produced cereal after maize. The importance of bread wheat for human food requires continuous improvement of wheat quality and productivity. Genetic complexity impedes breeders to identify, map and trace useful genes associated with excellent traits for crop breeding. However, it gives potential opportunity to create diversity by introducing alien genes or chromosome segments. Molecular marker as assisted selection method here provide vital role in screening and mapping genes and traits of interest in populations. Both advantages and disadvantages of molecular markers for wheat breeding are discussed.

Violent Crime - Through the Eyes of a Dangerous Criminal

Violent Crime - Through the Eyes of a Dangerous Criminal

Abstract
From the beginning of human life, violent crime has been an issue that society has had to deal with. Violent crime destroys the lives of innocent people. In order for people to live in peace, it is important that society finds a way to decrease violent criminal behavior. Society continually puts restraints in place as a means of deterring violent crime. These restraints are based on theories as to how violent behavior is derived and controlled. Before we can successfully deter criminal behavior, we must first understand the minds of those that commit these crimes.

Paper on Perception - Discussing the Four Principles of Perception and How the Brain Can Interpret the Information

Paper on Perception - Discussing the Four Principles of Perception and How the Brain Can Interpret the Information

Introduction
Perception is the way of interpreting sensory information by brain, and then gives an understanding about the object/ person we see. This essay will mainly focus on perception of sensory information from our eyes.

Basically, there are four principles of perception to explain how brain can interpret the information. They are: (1) Relativity of perception, (2) Selectivity of perception, (3) Perceptual organization and (4) Perceptual constancy. These four principles help to judge and value the object we see. Moreover, these four principles can be elaborated to judge and understand a person based on his/her appearance. Examples will be given based on each of four principles below.

Relativity of perception

The Age of Interactive Media

The Age of Interactive Media

The most interesting recent media ventures I see are Xbox Kinect, Siri on iPhone 4s and L. A. Noire. There is one thing in common. They are the new media technology that interacts with consumers. I think interactive media will be the future of the media industry.

First, let us talk about Xbox Kinect. The idea of full body gaming is just brilliant. It is a new way to play games. There is no controller required, because you are the controller. Kinect responds majorly to the gamer’s movement. It also recognizes simple voice orders such as, “play movies.” This system provides more interaction between the gamer and the game. It’s a bridge between virtual reality and the real world. I remember the first time I saw someone playing Fruit Ninja with Kinect, I was awed by the fluency of action translation this system. Imagine that in the future, we may play a game like Tron. How fascinating is that!

Domestic Violence: A Homosexual Matter Too

Domestic Violence: A Homosexual Matter Too

Introduction
The aim of this paper is to trace the current issue of domestic violence in gay couples in the United States of America. To do so, this paper will be divided into three parts. The first part will introduce the matter and its definition. I will try to briefly define what same-sex domestic violence is. Afterward, in the second part, I will show how it is seen in the country nowadays (how this subject is perceived, and I will not only put up with gay people perceptions). I will talk about this sexual minority and how society sees domestic abuse in their case. I will also insert few statistics to put numbers on this issue. Then, in the third part, I will make a kind of survey about how to tackle and prevent this huge problem and who can provide some sort of help to the victims, etc. And eventually, I will relate my own point of view on this topic and how I see it myself drawing the conclusion. I will try to criticize my analysis in the best way I can and summarize what should be done by the government of the United States. But above all, I will say what is worth to be remembered after reading my report.

Diabetes e hipertensão são fatores de risco independentes de aterosclerose. No entanto, até 70% dos pacientes com diabetes tipo 2 e até 40% dos pacientes com diabetes do tipo 1 têm arterial hipertensão arterial [1,2]. A combinação de diabetes e hipertensão pode amplificar ou acelerar o desenvolvimento e progressão da aterosclerose [3,4,5]. Pode haver um cut-em comum ponto ou caminho entre diabetes e hipertensão relacionada à acelerada remodelação vascular. Se assim for, seria muito valioso no tratamento de diabetes com e sem hipertensão. Diabetes relacionada com lesão vascular está intimamente associado com o deposição de produtos de glicação avançada (AGE) como um resultado da hiperglicemia prolongada por reações não enzimáticas entre proteínas de glicose e de longa duração (por exemplo, colágeno da parede vascular), lípidos e ácidos nucleicos no plasma e nos tecidos [6,7,8].

How William Shakespeare Developed Evil, Violence and Death in the Play Macbeth

How William Shakespeare Developed Evil, Violence and Death in the Play Macbeth

In William Shakespeare life, he wrote many tragedies. Shakespeare didn’t leave anything behind so every one that reads any of his plays then you would have to guess what he was thinking. He uses evil, violence, and death in all of his plays, so I found out that in William Shakespeare play, Macbeth has evil, violence, and death.

Life Expectancy of Countries Across the Globe

Life Expectancy of Countries Across the Globe

Let's examine the life expectancy of countries across the globe. The goal is to determine if life country expectancies at birth are related to the population growth. In determining the answer, a variety of variables will be researched and examined to determine the contributing factors. The life expectancy and population data will be measured by using statistics from the CIA Demographics data set which contains quantifiable statistics data for countries across the globe. Data from 30 or more countries, equally divided into categories of lower population, higher population, lower life expectancies, and higher life expectancies, will be examined and evaluated. Furthermore, literature reviews will be used aid in giving an in depth explanation of the resulting research.

The Problem
The problem is, although it is known, in countries like China, disease is a contributing factor of low life expectancies, it is also known that the high risk of disease in China is due to over population which is the cause of other concerning factors that have an impact on life expectancies. Could this be the fate for other countries in the world?

Chick Lit is Literature

Chick Lit is Literature

Formula fiction and its genres are recognizable as being literature. Chick Literature is a sub-genre of woman’s fiction. This sub-genre can be considerate literature since it reflects the 3 common points of literature. Those criteria are respected in Chick Lit because there is a reflection of society and human experience through the protagonist of the story. Also the author’s voice is unique and the story is always engaging the reader by discussing a universal truth. Each one of them is clearly represented in the plot of a typical Chick lit story. These conventions are analyzed in Helen Fielding’s “Bridget Jones’s Diary”.

Is the System of Closed Material Proceedings an Appropriate Way to Reconcile National Security Concerns With Due Process Requirements in UK Counter-Terrorism Law?

Lawrence McNamara wrote an interesting article in the Guardian: How will we even know a closed judgement exists? In the article, McNamara stated that without open justice, media's role to ensure that the rule of law was being upheld would be compromised. What was disturbing for Mr.McNamara was that neither the Security & Justice Green Paper nor the decision of the country’s Supreme Court in Al-Rawi , the leading authorities dealing with Closed Material Proceedings (hereinafter referred as “CMP”), even discuss this key issue.
