#NYU   #masserrors  
So sorry we got caught.
Donating your body to medical research is arguably the ultimate act of generosity, and though it's nice to believe that you'll be helping scientists cure cancer or retrofit humans to combat antibiotic-resistant superbugs, the reality is that many bodies donated to science wind up being poked and prodded by medical students. NYU's medical school has for some time made a point of demonstrating respect for those who donate their bodies, holding regular ceremoniesat which medical students honor their "first patients and true teachers"—but it turns out that for years, the school was sending cadavers to be buried in mass graves at Hart Island, even when donors specified that they wanted to be cremated.
The New York Times stumbled across these cases during a larger investigation of burials on Hart Island, the 131-acre island east of the Bronx that's been under the jurisdiction of the city since 1868 and run solely by the Department of Correction for the past 70 years. 65,801 people have been buried on the island since 1980, and the Times' investigation found that a number of those people had their bodies donated to be used as cadavers by first-year medical students at NYU. They signed forms that said their bodies would be cremated and their ashes disposed of "in an appropriate and dignified manner," but wound up unceremoniously packed into 150-person coffins alongside former prisoners, stillborn infants, AIDs victims, and those who were unidentifiable at the time of their death.
Donors wanted their remains cremated, but instead they were packed into coffins with 150 other dead bodies.

#ME   #CFS   #FM  
Could this also be true for other disorders? My problem (often) has
been concentration.
The present observations, therefore, indicate the patients’ inability to recruit inhibitory and self defensive circuits against sensory repetition. (The authors)
Is thinking harder than it used to be? Do even little mental tasks seem effortful at times? It might not be that you’re thinking too little; it might be that you’re thinking too much.
The three pound supercomputer we call our brain is a powerful instrument; the most complex thinking instrument ever devised but even it has its limits. It has to pick and choose how it uses its resources. Throw all the stimuli in our environment at it and circuits are going to fry. In order to get by in our complex world – to plan, to organize, to decide, even just to move our bodies – requires that our brains disregard some stimuli and pay attention to others.

#soldier   #vets  
WEDNESDAY, May 25, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Suicide attempts in the military aren't necessarily combat-driven. At the height of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. Army soldiers most likely to try to kill themselves were never deployed, new research shows.

Moreover, risk was greatest just two months into service, according to the study of more than 163,000 soldiers.

But the findings aren't a sign that going to war protects soldiers against suicide. "It is more likely that those who are not deployed are already at a higher risk for suicide, and that is one of the reasons they were not cleared to deploy," said Alan Peterson, professor and chief of behavioral medicine at University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Peterson, a military mental health researcher, wasn't involved in the study.

Suicide rates within the military exploded during the wars of the last 15 years, said study lead author Dr. Robert Ursano.

Corvids~Jackdaws~Ravens~Crows~
Ravens - the most intelligent birds in the world (doc)
Crows accomplish spiritual benefits that were confidenced only by humans and apes.

There are Corvids around the world. An evidence for their adaptability. They were highly revered in most cultures because of their intelligence, but with the civilization their image changed. In the walls of the moated castle Hallwyl accommodate a Jackdaw colony since it was built around 1200. In the shaft of a medieval abortion a jackdaw couple build a nest. Also in the castle in Starnberg has always been a jackdaw. There are jackdaws also in the castle in Starnberg. Biologist and behavioral scientist Princess Augusta of Bavaria examined precisely the jackdaws and identified in them a highly developed intelligence. In addition to several species of monkeys, crows are the only animals which can make tools and use them meaningfully.
Interviewed persons:
Christoph Vogel (Biologist), Princess Auguste of Bavaria (Biologist and Behavioural Scientist), Christian Rutz (Zoologist)

An excerpt from the documentary of NZZ Format "Clever Ravens."

Education
  • art school
    fine art; painter, also do slr photo/ learning digi slowly..
Basic Information
Gender
Female
Looking for
Friends
Birthday
May 16, 1952
Relationship
It's complicated
Other names
Stambaugh; would have been best to have kept 'maiden' name as this would have pleased my dad and I'd be happier with it as well.
Story
Tagline
artist/ occasional photographer who isn't yet with digital as I'm old school SLR. (brain does not like digi camera much)..
Introduction
currently not working as I've got this autoimmune thing; not happy when I am not able to work. 
(you know how you need income for food, stuff like that? well, not having enough each month or just barely gets old mighty damn quick!). 
what I have hasn't a cure. it is ME/ CFS aka myalgiac encephalelomyelitis or chronic fatigue syndrome. and fibromyalgia tossed in for good measure although many have that one as well.
hate writing this stuff about 'me' first as it is not all I am about! but .. it does affect me, hinders me and even online...
I get a thing called 'brain fog' meaning I'll have these weird memory lapses. there are also cognitive effects; emotional, practically you name it (wiki does a fair job in description).
things for me could be worse.. could be better; whatever! did discover it gives me something of a learning disability; thinking that this may well be the why about the damn digi camera thing. not to mention a number of computer things (great finding that learning/ cognitive thing out; damn study done this past year).

gotta have a sense of humor. at all times! mine just happens to lean toward cynical, dark...

more personal kind of stuff .. zero tolerance here for those who are bigots. for those who do not like someone for their sexual preferences, for their ... lifestyle, culture; think you might get the idea..

absolutely adore music!! just live for that stuff! also art, photography, books.

love, respect and adore animals! do not believe in keeping a wild animal as a pet. dogs, cats within reason. (oh yeah; spay! neuter! adopt!). some exceptions to the exotic animal
thing would be .. you rescue something/ someone, that kind of thing.. 

I do live in a city so many think of as just the bomb. my 'hood is like .. well, not a very nice area. 

love to read and have since I learned as a kid in school (always an avid reader). currently it's more fiction than other things for the reason of having lost concentration abilities greatly since becoming ill. (miss that! it's kind of like you get stupid when you get sick; you drop a bunch of IQ points which is disquieting!).

all i can think of. prefer to correspond/ interact with people at least close to my age. can't get why anyone much younger would even be interested....?
Bragging rights
survived some stuff I was rather surprised I did, but I think many have that one.
Work
Occupation
Last employment was in field of computer graphics/ color darkroom back when it was all about slide shows in '90's
Skills
A number of different things.. home repairs; some mechanics. Know a bit of darkroom as this was a hobby for a time. simply many things which I've needed to know. oh; some gardening as well, and basic 'dog.'
Employment
  • this is a hard one as I've done so many different varied gigs since age 15 then a break when I was in art school.. kind of -almost- a you name it, I've done it! very funny resume if I list all!!
    Have had so damn many gigs (worked since 15 at something) this would be difficult to list. I've always had to write resumes in a creative manner. So .. given my age, employment spans from the mid 1960's on. Some of this, enjoyable, some not so much and then there've been those which were simply heinous. (Doubt anyone hasn't had these same sort of experiences with the really dreadful and short lived jobs).
