New treatment for depression shows immediate results

first_imgIndividuals with major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder who receive low-field magnetic stimulation (LFMS) show immediate and substantial mood improvement, McLean Hospital researchers report in the Aug. 1 issue of Biological Psychiatry.“LFMS is unlike any current treatment. It uses magnetic fields that are a fraction of the strength but at a higher frequency than the electromagnetic fields used in TMS [transcranial magnetic stimulation] and ECT [electroconvulsive therapy],” explained first author Michael Rohan, a physicist at McLean Hospital’s Brain Imaging Center and a lecturer at Harvard Medical School.According to Rohan, although other brain stimulation treatments like ECT and TMS are often effective for the treatment of depression, they typically take longer to impact mood, and ECT is associated with side effects such as memory loss.Similarly, while antidepressant medications can be highly effective for treating depression, it can take between four to six weeks before mood changes are detected.“Importantly, LFMS appears to have an immediate effect on mood and thus has the potential to provide relief in emergency situations,” explained Rohan, who first reported the potential use of LFMS to treat depression in a groundbreaking study in 2004. “In addition to providing quick relief from symptoms, the other exciting piece about LFMS is that no side effects have been observed.”Using a portable tabletop LFMS device that Rohan designed, the researchers studied 63 volunteers between the ages of 18 and 65. All participants had been diagnosed with either major depressive disorder or bipolar disorder and had been on a regimen of antidepressants or mood-stabilizing medications for at least six weeks. Of the study participants, 34 actively received LFMS, while the other 29 went through the process but did not actually receive any brain stimulation. Since neither the patients nor the researchers knew which participants had actually received the treatment, the true effect of the LFMS could be measured.Each participant rated his or her mood before and after the single 20-minute treatment using two common self-assessment tools: a visual analog scale and the positive and negative affect schedule. Participants who received the LFMS treatment indicated a marked improvement in their mood, while those whose brains were not stimulated reported no change in mood.“We observed immediate improvement in mood following relatively brief exposure to LFMS,” noted Rohan. “Although larger research studies are needed, we think LFMS could be a powerful tool as a rapidly acting treatment for depression, either alone or in combination with medication.”Biological Psychiatry also published commentary from experts on brain stimulation who said Rohan’s work on LFMS is exciting and shows great promise.“If the results described in this study are replicated in larger studies and the effects are shown to be durable, LFMS would be a welcome addition to the clinical armamentarium in the treatment of depression, may find application in other psychiatric and neurologic diseases, and may help to inform and guide us toward future directions in neuromodulation,” wrote Mouhsin Shafi, Philip Stern, and Alvaro Pascual-Leone.According to Rohan, additional research is already underway to find the best parameters for LFMS use in the clinical treatment of depression. He has also started a research study to evaluate the effects of multiple rather than to single treatments, and measure how long the antidepressant effects last following treatment.McLean Hospital is an affiliate of Harvard Medical School.last_img read more

Contractor to be appointed to Gaoth Dobhair Sewerage Scheme

first_imgA contractor is set to be appointed in the coming days to oversee the eagerly anticipated Gaoth Dobhair Sewerage Scheme. The scheme, which will utilise innovative and cutting edge wastewater technology, is understood to be the first of its kind across the country.Describing the development as a ‘landmark moment’ for the community of Gaoth Dobhair, Pearse Doherty said: “It’s my understanding that Irish Water will shortly be appointing the main contractor who will have responsibility for the installation and associated site works of the Gaoth Dobhair Sewerage Scheme demonstration project. “I’ve been advised that the detailed designs with respect to the fifty plus properties taking part in this initial phase have been finalised and, following consultation with the residents and business owners involved, the final system layouts and connection agreements have also been agreed.“Once the contractor is selected hopefully in the coming days, Irish Water envisages that work on the primary collection network will commence first, following which it’s anticipated that the connections for each of the individual properties will be installed thereafter.“The type of network which the utility has chosen for the area is a pressurised sewerage system which, when completed, will utilise innovative and cutting edge wastewater technology and one which is expected will fully meet local needs.“When built this scheme will be the first of its kind anywhere on the island of Ireland and, as has been the case in other countries which have embraced this technology and where it’s been hugely successful, it’s hoped that the concept could act as a template for other areas where the local terrain and topography make constructing traditional sewerage systems all but impossible. “Similarly, one of the many benefits of this type of design is that it is quite easy and relatively low cost to extend it in order to add additional properties to the network should the need arise, therefore it’s a concept which is often considered to be quite future proof in that regard.“While it’s disappointing that it has taken more than forty years to get to this stage, I am absolutely delighted that the community here will shortly see a contractor in place and then hopefully we’ll see the first physical works get underway as the project’s demonstration phase is being installed.“This is a landmark moment for the community here in Gaoth Dobhair and I now very much look forward to seeing this scheme progress further in the time ahead.”Contractor to be appointed to Gaoth Dobhair Sewerage Scheme was last modified: May 22nd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Is Bryan College Caving on Adam and Eve?

first_imgProfessors protest clarification of a Christian college’s statement of belief that affirms “creation” includes a literal Adam and Eve.According to an AP story posted on the Times News, professors overwhelmingly voted “no confidence” in a trustees’ “clarification” of its creation stance that “states that Adam and Eve were historical people who were not created from previously existing life forms.”  The vote was 30-2 against the clarification by some of its 44 professors.According to the news article, the professors objected more to the process employed than to the statement itself.  The trustees respond that it was a statement of “clarification,” not a change to the statement of belief, which is supposed to be unalterable.  It would seem Bible-believing professors, though, would welcome the clarification.  World Magazine explains that some of the professors are cozying up with the theistic evolution staff of Biologos Foundation; that’s why they object to the clarification.Bryan College’s Statement of Belief is an eight-point doctrinal statement adopted at the time of the school’s founding in 1930. According to the school’s charter, the belief statement cannot be amended or changed, and trustees, officers, faculty, and staff must affirm it once a year. The fourth point in the statement says the school believes “that the origin of man was by fiat of God in the act of creation as related in the Book of Genesis; that he was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred physical and spiritual death.”Such a clear statement seems self-explanatory.  The trustees explain why they felt the clarification was necessary:Last month, the board of trustees adopted the following “clarification” statement: “We believe that all humanity is descended from Adam and Eve. They are historical persons created by God in a special formative act, and not from previously existing life forms.”Board Chairman John Haynes told me the clarification is not an amendment to the Statement of Belief, which may not be altered. “We are clarifying one point in the Statement of Belief, which has to do with the creation of Adam and Eve,” he said. “We’re saying this is the intent of that statement.”Asked why the board felt it was necessary to make such a clarification at this time, Haynes simply said, “There seems to be some question as to the intent of the Statement of Belief. That’s the bottom line.”The Blaze includes a video clip from the Chattanooga Times that claims professors are being “forced” to sign the clarification, and that students and alumni are joining in the protest on the grounds of “academic freedom.”  The Blaze article states, though, that professors are being given opportunity to comment on the statement.Bryan College is named after William Jennings Bryan, who defended the Bible and creation in the famous Scopes Trial of 1925 in the college’s hometown, Dayton, Tennessee.  Its motto is “Christ above all.”For one thing, all readers should be skeptical of the Associated Press.  AP has an agenda and is fully capable of spinning facts to present a desired narrative.  New Republic‘s article is even more biased, calling Bryan College an “extremely conservative” school that believes in “Biblical literalism,” making it sound like an inquisition is going on: “A Tennessee College is Forcing its Faculty to Swear They Believe Adam and Eve Existed.”  World Magazine is a much more trustworthy source.If the professors are, in fact, objecting to belief in a real Adam and Eve, it’s a judgment on their scholarship, not on the Bible.  People need to understand that academics are some of the worst people in the world when it comes to groupthink.  Nobody in academia wants to be an outsider.  Since progressivist liberals have taken over the universities of this country (and progressivism is built on the evolutionary worldview), the few stalwart Christian colleges feel that isolation.If the Bible-compromising profs want to go, let them go.  Good riddance.  They applied knowing what the college believes.  They already signed a statement that God created man “by fiat” according to Genesis, and that “he” sinned, and that death was the judgment of that sin (not millions of years of death before he evolved).  They should know that Jesus Christ believed in a literal Adam and Eve, a literal Fall, a literal Noah and a literal Flood.  So did Paul and the apostles.  If the professors love the world more than the Lord, let them go to the disgraced halls of secularism where terrorists are praised, where sexual orgies are promoted, and where conservatives are shouted down in the name of “free speech.”  Let them sit in the gates of Sodom, and take part in its judgment, if togetherness with the mob is what they desire.As for their crocodile tears over “academic freedom,” what a laugh!  Darwinists with their DODO Policy are the worst intolerant bigots anywhere in the ivy-walled ivory towers.  Look how many innocent scholars have had their careers ruined by the Darwin Party (partial list on Evolution News & Views).  Dare to doubt the Darwin religion, and you are at great risk, whether you are a professor, reporter, or employee involved with secular science.  Oh, the irony!   The poor, narrow-minded bigots “will be afraid to teach alternative creation theories.”  Good grief.  Try presenting any non-DODO alternative at Ball State or George Mason and watch the war erupt.  We hope Bryan College will stand its ground, proud and free against the intolerant Darwin bigots (we need to call them what they are).If the profs go, the lines are drawn.  Then we can debate them as secularists on the evidence.  Let the theistic evolutionists defend the sorry record of human evolution (3/07/14).  Let them explain upright, big-brained humans going hundreds of thousands of years grunting in caves rather than building cities or inventing technology.  Let them explain the genetic evidence that not only supports the Genesis account (Thomas, ICR), but makes the secular millions-of-years story untenable (Jeanson, ICR).  Let the Darwin-worshiping idolators force every Darwin-contradicting fact into Charlie’s myth.  Let them toss their Bibles into the trash and show their true loyalty to Darwin-Baal (9/26/03, 9/14/07, 4/07/10).  Better that than have them pretend to ascribe to “Christ above all.”Tip link:  See Keaton Halley’s answer at CMI to the question, “Does the Bible trump all evidence?” (Visited 30 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Hotmail Users, It’s Time To Move To Outlook.com, Like It Or Not

first_imgRelated Posts Tags:#email#Hotmail#Microsoft#Outlook Last July, Microsoft reworked its email system and unveiled Outlook.com, a beta of a dramatically improved email client that it said at the time would eventually replace Hotmail. The Windows 8 style “Metro makeovers” eventually reached SkyDrive, the new Office Web Apps, and a revamped MSN, among other Microsoft propertiess. Although Hotmail and Outlook.com share several elements – social connections to Twitter and Facebook, for example, and the ability to put rich media – including videos – within the client itself, Outlook.com is a bold reimagining of the Web email client in the Windows 8 vein.The Dad ProblemThe problem, unfortunately, is Dad.My father, like many fathers, is a wonderful man. But even though he’s an engineer, he despises technology. He hated beepers. Cell phones. ATM cards. Computers. Since I convinced my mother that a DVR could record Oakland A’s games or St. Mary’s basketball games, they’ve added a (standard-definition) video recoreder, which collects dust under their 27-inch Sony Trinitron CRT television. To their credit, we were one of the early families to adopt the microwave, which still resides in our kitchen, waiting for me to reset the clock in the event of a power failure.My father has an AOL account.My father quite logically points out that he has no need for an additional email address, since that AOL account is now embedded deep in the list of contact of their friends. And, cheapskate that he is (a compliment, in our family) he quickly bailed out of AOL’s dialup service when a better ISP deal came along.But there is no way on God’s green earth that my father wants Windows 8. He’s quite happy with Windows XP, thank you, which chugs along on his old Dell PC. I’m pretty sure he would still be on an ancient version of Internet Explorer had I not upgraded him for fear of him getting hacked.No, my father does not have a Hotmail account, but I suspect that there are plenty of people just like him who do. Shifting from Hotmail to the Outlook.com environment is definitely going to blow some minds. I suspect that after glimpsing the Windows 8 style interface, some people may never venture upon the Internet again.Easing The Transition?I kid, of course.Honestly, I’m sure some users will be blown away by the look and feel of Outlook.com, and the wealth of new features it offers. Some may even feel comfortable enough to upgrade their PCs to finally enter the 21st Century. And give credit where credit is due: Law and Microsoft are definitely trying to make the transition as easy as possible:“Everything from their @hotmail.com email address, password, messages, folders, contacts, rules, vacation replies, etc. will stay the same, with no disruption in service,” Law wrote. “When upgraded, they’ll also get all the benefits from the redesigned Outlook.com experience – a fresh and intuitive user interface, lots of new features and better performance. And we won’t ever make you switch your email address to an @outlook.com address if you don’t want to.”But when I read all that, I still can’t help but think of this quote:“I used to be with it, but then they changed what *it* was. Now what I’m with isn’t *it,* and what’s *it* seems weird and scary to me. It’ll happen to you…” Abe Simpson, The Simpsons: “Homerpalooza”Image source: Flickr/pauldwaite. “OK, people, listen up. Seymour, pay attention. Elsie, turn on your hearing aid. It’s time to move your Hotmail accounts to Outlook.com. Hey! No, stop complaining. Don’t use that language, Ethel, it’s un-ladylike.”Yes, the the time has come – the hundreds of millions of email users who are currently using Hotmail will be migrated over to Outlook.com by this summer, Microsoft said Tuesday. For many of Microsoft’s long-time customers, this will be their first experience with the Windows 8-styled “Metro” user interface that Microsoft is propagating around its properties.(See also Outlook.com: Take A Tour Of Microsoft’s Hotmail Replacement.)“We’ve been very excited by the adoption of the preview and how it’s delivering on our promise of a new, reimagined email service,” David Law, director of product management for Outlook.com, said in a blog post on Tuesday. “Throughout the preview, we learned a tremendous amount from seeing how people used the service.  Early adopters have told us what they liked, what they’d like to see next, and what we needed to do to make more people switch. And we’ve used that to add new features and fine-tune the services to scale.  Now that Outlook.com is coming out of preview, we’ll be kicking off a huge push across a number of countries around the world to drive even greater awareness and adoption of Outlook.com.” Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… markhachmanlast_img read more

We are still following the teaching norms set by the British. They had designed our education system to produce clerks who would simply follow their orders.

To rectify the flaws in our education system, we need to promote learning by understanding.”ANJUM M. SAMEL, on e-mailOur Government should take serious steps to revamp the education system and focus on imparting real knowledge, which is not determined by marks alone. It is disheartening to see students performing well in examinations, yet lacking analytical skills.MAHUA VENKATESH, DelhiThe problem doesn’t lie with the syllabus alone. There is a dearth of trained tutors in our country as teaching today is a profession adopted by people who fail to make a mark in other fields. There should be enough remuneration and perks to attract educators in our country.HIRAK SENGUPTA, DelhiA clear distinction has to be made between learning and knowledge. Students should not be encouraged to memorise lessons to score in examinations. In stead, they should be motivated to exchange ideas on various educative topics with their fellow classmates to gain knowledge.S. LAKSHMI, on e-mailINDIA TODAY’s delineation on the education system unmasked some of the drawbacks that prevail in our schools. The learning process is akin to a sport. You need to play the game and not just read about it to be completely evolved. Perhaps, we need to adopt a lab approach which will help students learn faster.K. CHIDANAND KUMAR, BangaloreadvertisementThere is a craze to admit children in good schools but in reality, do we know the definition of one? The best products come out of unknown schools. Just compare the results of civil services in the last decade and you’ll know that motivation doesn’t come from the tag of the school.MAN MOHAN BHATIA, DelhiPrisoners of FateIt is really outrageous that defying all international norms and protocols, Pakistan has not returned the Indian prisoners of the 1971 war, even after India released more than 93,000 Pakistani soldiers. (“Missing in Inaction”, November 27). India should take up the issue with the Pakistani Government and seek a solution for the release of the hapless POWs languishing in their jails.V.K.TANGRI. DehradunIt is disheartening to see that a story about our prisoners of war gets just two pages in a magazine like yours. The media seems to be blissfully unaware of the plight of the POWs and their families. The job of the media is to highlight the grievances of the masses. On this issue, however, it seems to have failed.BHAVYA BHATNAGAR, DelhiHu’s FriendsIt is only prudent on India’s part to improve relations with China in the face of increasing hostilities from Pakistan and Bangladesh (“Return of the Dragon”, November 27). We certainly cannot afford more enemies in the neighbourhood. Even on economic front, improved co-operation with China is imperative. As they say, if you cannot beat them, join them.SANJEET KHAJURIA, LucknowMoney and the MomsIt is incorrect to say that children of working women get a better deal than single income homes (“The Mummy Factor”, November 27). True, urban households with working women have higher annual incomes, but that’s not the only criterion to ensure better quality of life as the spending capacity of a family does not determine a child’s upbringing.VIJAYA BHARATI, RourkelaNo Child’s PlayWe need a clearer definition of innocence (“Loss of Innocence”, November 27). Today, no parent is keen on having a shy or dumb kid. Every one dreams of a Sanchita or an Akansha in their child and there is no problem in that. Children should be well trained to take on the competition around them.LATA RAGHAVAN, DelhiRoyal MistakeWhile elaborating the politics of royalty, you have mentioned that “Shrimant” means “your highness” (“A Battle Royale”, November 27). This is totally misleading as in the Hindi dictionary, the meaning of this word is wealthy and revered. When it is prefixed to a name, the more appropriate meaning would be revered.M.A. GHATGE, on e-mailDigital DivideOur technology is breeding a sense of deprivation among those tender minds whose parents cannot afford the gizmos that they see their friends hooked on to (“Wired Generation”, November 20). Such youngsters have a tendency to feel left out and inadequate during their school years. Such feelings can later develop into serious complexes, affecting their overall performances.SANDEEP SHETE, PuneadvertisementClean Up CricketIndian cricket has come of age; it has aged. So have our cricketers (“Perform or Pay Up”, November 20). Cricket now is not about performance but about endorsements and politics. Cricketers should be judged on their performances. There is no use dragging in coaches into the mess when the team is unable to perform.PRITAM SETH, on e-mailIt’s certainly the best time to institute a “pay for performance” system for our cricket team, which is under scrutiny for quite some time for its poor performance. If a fine is levied on them, our cricketers will be forced to perform on field. After all, they too should justify their salaries.JAYASHANKAR JAYARAMAN, BangaloreLabouring Over Child LawsIt shouldn’t surprise anyone that the Government has announced a ban on child labour without putting in place a mechanism to ensure a good future for them. After all, rehabilitation as a term has always been anathema to Indian governance.ALEX PAPERWALA, on e-mailThe coordination among ministries may be lacking as far as proper implementation of a ban on child labour is concerned, but at least the Government seems to have woken up to the problem.
