Anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD linked to inflammatory dysregulation, study finds…

01) Anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD linked to inflammatory dysregulation, study finds

“Post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and anxiety disorders are all positively associated with high levels of inflammation markers in the blood, according to new research published in the journal Depression & Anxiety.

“Broadly, my research program examines the ways that emotions and physiology influence and relate to one another — that is, when someone experiences negative emotions (e.g., sadness, anxiety, anger) frequently and/or intensely what does that do to their physical health?” said study author Megan E. Renna of Columbia University.

“There has been a well-established link between chronic illness and anxiety in the literature over the years. But, it still has been unclear as to what processes, both psychologically and physically, contribute to this association, so I wanted to examine if inflammation may be one of these processes among people with anxiety, traumatic stress, and obsessive-compulsive related disorders.”

01) What Does Everyday Courage Look Like?

“Margaret Heffernan talks about the danger of “willful blindness” and praises ordinary people who are willing to speak up. She tells the story of Gayla Benefield, who uncovered an awful secret about her hometown and spoke up even when it was hard.

About Margaret Heffernan

The former CEO of five businesses, Margaret Heffernan explores topics like conflict avoidance and selective blindness — things that lead managers and organizations astray. In her book Willful Blindness, Margaret Heffernan examines why businesses and the people who run them often ignore the obvious — with consequences as dire as the global financial crisis and Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear disaster.

Heffernan began her career in television production, building a track record at the BBC before going on to run the film and television producer trade association IPPA. In the U.S., Heffernan became a serial entrepreneur and CEO in the wild early days of Web business and was named one of the Internet’s Top 100 by Silicon Alley Reporter in 1999.”

Anti-SJW Cringe Compilation – Volume 2…

01) Anti-SJW Cringe Compilation – Volume 2

My goodness!…Shoe0nHead…Andy Warski…Stephen Molyneux…Armored Skeptic, even…

At least two of these people, I have absolutely nothing good to say about…I consider them to be cancer on the internet…and the human species, as a whole…One of them gives me an ill feeling…the other has done interesting stuff on YouTube, but a lot of people have really come to hate this person…and I’ve not paid enough attention to get all the “whys”.

…Then there is Milo…what to say about him?…What goes around, comes around…He wants to retreat from good stances, and attach himself to whatever current platform will have him?…fine…But that’s a turbulent, bridge burning path…I hope he has enough quality friends to burn through, going down that road…When he reaches the end, it’s going to get real ugly.

I largely had to share this, since I just happened across it…only a few days after sharing the Shoe0nHead diatribe.

…After spreading false information, and taking cheap stabs at MAPs…it’s interesting to watch her call Leslie Jones a gorilla…

…She’s just a “sweetheart all around”, isn’t she?

Truth be told…Ghost Busters 2016 is a good, funny movie…with one or two scenes, that probably should have ended up on the cutting room floor…But I’m glad I went to see it.

Leslie did not deserve any of that ugly crap…

Thing about “pretty girls” like Shoe0nHead…

…They can have the most aesthetically pleasing look in the world…but if they’re ugly on the inside…they’re just plain ugly…

…Surface shallow looks will never cover up, nor compensate for, that type of ugly…

…It’s the worst type of ugly there is.
