Been a foreigner and doing a degree in Law, I guess I should have been prepared for all this! I am so sorry for giving you trouble though.

The sentence is: Kissinger’s ( Kissinger was one of the politicians orchestrating the exile of the people) rather appalling statement: ‘[t]here are only 90,000 people out there. Who gives a damn?’ is indicative of how these people were perceived and treated by the authorities during the enforced evacuation.

Assignment

TheSummervillage Community Coalitionhas asked each member to continue gathering information about specific health issues as they work toward creating a healthier community. This time, you were asked to focus on Injury Prevention.

For this assignment, please investigate how well (or not well) your State scored on the 10 key indicators of steps states can take to prevent injuries described inthe required background reading,The Facts Hurt: A State-By-State Injury Prevention Policy Reportpublished by the Trust for America’s Health (2012).

Write a 2 – 3 page paper that addresses the following:

1. Tell me what State you chose to investigate. (GEORGIA)

2. How does your Georgia compare with other States?

3. What steps has your Georgia taken to prevent injuries?

4. What additional steps should they take?

5. In what ways have any of these injury-related issues affected you or someone you know?

Maladaptive Behavior

2. Volkow et al. (2011) report that positron emission tomography (PET) results reveal that addicted subjects have an imbalance between dopaminergic circuits related to reward, conditioned responses to drug cues, and dopaminergic circuits related to executive functions such as emotional control and decision making.

Read Volkow et al.’s article and select a single graph or an image from the paper. Be sure to cite the number and title of the figure. For the figure you select, respond to the following:
• Explain how the figure supports the main result about an imbalance between the circuits.
For example, Figure 1 has six parts from which you can choose one. Upon selecting one of the six parts, you should describe what is represented on the figure or graph and how it supports the idea of an imbalance between the circuits that relate to reward, conditioned responses to drug cues, and to executive function.

American Values

 

Unlike norms whose existence can easily be observed in everyday behavior, values are often more difficult to identify.  The values of a society have to be inferred from its norms, so any analysis of values relies heavily on the interpretations of the observer.  The United States presents a particular problem for it has a heterogeneous culture drawn from many different racial, ethnic, religious, and regional traditions; thus, it lacks the unquestioned consensus on values that smaller, traditional communities tend to display.  Sociologists have therefore concentrated on detecting “core” values that appear to be shared by the majority of Americans.  The most influential of these attempts is that of Robin Williams (1970), who found fifteen basic value orientations in the United States. Ten of these are listed here:

 

  1. ACHIEVEMENT and SUCCESS.  The society is highly competitive, and great value is placed on the achievement of power, wealth, and prestige.

 

  1. ACTIVITY and WORK.  Regular, disciplined work is highly valued for its own sake; those who do not work are considered lazy and even immoral.

 

  1. HUMANITARIANISM.  Americans regard themselves as a kindly, charitable people, always ready to come to the aid of the less fortunate or the underdog.

 

  1. EFFICIENCY and PRACTICALITY.  Americans believe that problems have solutions, and they are an intensely practical people; the ability to “get things done” is widely admired.

 

  1. PROGRESS.  Americans look to the future rather than the past, sharing a conviction that things can and should get better; their outlook is fundamentally optimistic.

 

  1. MATERIAL COMFORT.  Americans value the “good life,” which they define in terms of a high standard of living and the possession of material goods.

 

  1. EQUALITY.  Americans claim to believe in human equality, particularly in equality of opportunity; they generally relate to one another in an informal, egalitarian way.

 

  1. FREEDOM.  The freedom of the individual is regarded as one of the most important values in American life; Americans believe devoutly that they are and should remain “free.”

 

  1. NATIONALISM-PATRIOTISM.  Americans are proud of their country and its achievements; the “American way of life” is highly valued and assumed to be the best in the world.

 

  1. INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY.  To be responsible, self-respecting individual is very important, and Americans are reluctant to give the group priority over the individual.

Anxiety disorders are a significant problem in the community, and recent neuroimaging research has focused on determining the brain circuits that underlie them.

Research on the neurocircuitry of anxiety disorders has its roots in the study of fear circuits in animal models and the study of brain responses to emotional stimuli in healthy humans. Please see the attached documents.

No aspect of our mental life is more important to the quality and meaning of our existence than emotions. They are what make life worth living, or sometimes ending.

So it is not surprising that most of the great classical philosophers—Plato, Aristotle, Spinoza, Descartes, Hobbes, Hume—had recognizable theories of emotion, conceived as responses to certain sorts of events of concern to a subject, triggering bodily changes and typically motivating characteristic behavior.
