CNN's Down Syndrome

While Brits are in a snit that Rupert Murdoch is "not a fit person" to lead a news network, it's become increasingly apparent that CNN is not a fit outfit to be a news network.Erin Burnett hissy fit:  I didn't sign up for this.CNN racked up another dubious distinction in April: the lowest number of total viewers "in more than a decade" and "the worst primetime ratings in nearly two years."  TV by the Numbers compares April 2012 to April 2011 and finds CNN down big time:(Fox's daytime shows 9a-4p showed impressive double digit gains from last year with Megyn Kelly's America Live leader of the pack packing a 35% rise.)TV by the Numbers TVBTN's Robert Seidman to NYT's Brian Stelter: ?CNN appears committed to a business model that doesn?t work."Narcissus and notoriously unfit Brit phone hacker Piers Morgan sinks into his own reflection.Related:  British Politicians Split on Murdoch's 'fitness' Eric Wemple Wash PostDiller, Welch and Trump Offer Their Support for M...

Our Financial Stockholm Syndrome: Identifying With Your Capture-ers Is Also
2012-03-19 16:03:00
When you stop to think how people keep other in line, look no further than "the money" for a reason of how and why.The Societal Stockholm Syndrome which is defined Here operates on the principal that after a while captured prisoners begin identifying with their captors. That is to say, those who have people under their thumb and under their minds, like the fact that they can control people, derive great pleasure from being able to control people, and their power over people proves just how powerful they really are. The captors dig the shit out of this idea especially where "the Money" is concerned.The story of the finance lobby is] about the way that lobby—with the eager support of a resurgent conservative movement and a handful of powerful backers—was able to fundamentally change the way we think about the world. Call it a virus. Call it a meme. Call it the power of a big idea. Whatever you call it, for three decades they had us convinced that the success of the ...

The Social Media Herd Syndrome – Will We Kill The Golden Goose?
2010-05-24 13:17:00
Nothing succeeds like Success and also nothing is followed as much as success is. Its been 4 years (almost) since I started blogging and almost 3 since I started advising brands and corporates on social media communications. In hindsight Ive made many mistakes on many fronts both while blogging and while advising clients. One thing is for sure thought I didn’t follow anyone. At the time when I started I did so because I found it interesting, intriguing and a fun thing to do. Even today with very little time on my hands and with hectic schedules it still is a fun thing to do (Though I wish I had more time). The herd is here.. Now over the last year or so Ive seen people from all quarters *(IT consultants, Architects, Bankers etc) chuck their jobs and look at social media as a prospective business/career. Now before you say what’s wrong in that? Id like to clarify that Im the happiest when I see so many people venture into this space as its a space that is bound to grow a...

Budd-Chiari Syndrome
2009-11-27 14:03:00
Budd-Chiari syndrome is caused by blood clots that completely or partially block the large veins that carry blood from the liver (hepatic veins) into the inferior vena cava. Some people have no symptoms, but others experience fatigue, abdominal pain, nausea, and jaundice. Fluid may accumulate in the abdomen, the spleen may enlarge, and sometimes severe bleeding occurs in the esophagus. Doppler ultrasonography can detect narrowed or blocked veins. Drugs may be used to dissolve or decrease the size of the clot, or a connection may be made between veins to allow blood to bypass the liver. Budd-Chiari syndrome usually occurs when a clot narrows or blocks the hepatic veins. Because blood flow out of the liver is impeded, blood accumulates in the liver, causing it to enlarge. The spleen may also enlarge. The backup of blood (congestion) in the hepatic veins causes blood pressure in the portal vein to increase. This increased pressure, called portal hypertension, can result i...
Alagille Syndrome
2009-11-24 14:17:00
Alagille syndrome is a rare, inherited disorder in which bile flow from the liver is decreased and the there are fewer than normal bile ducts. Alagille syndrome is a disorder that often affects the liver and other organs, including the heart, eyes, spine and kidneys. Often, patients with alagille syndrome have distinctive facial appearances. A small number of patients (about 15%) go on to develop severe liver disease and require liver transplantation. This disorder is usually present at birth. Alagille syndrome is one of the most common inherited disorders that causes reduced bile flow within the liver. It occurs about once in every 100,000 births. What are the causes of alagille syndrome? Recent studies have discovered that defects of a specific gene cause alagille syndrome. The disease usually is inherited from one parent. A single copy of the diseased gene (received from either the mother or father) "dominates" the other normal gene and results in this disease. Ther...
Cognitive Dysfunction Reversed in Mouse Model of Down?s Syndrome
2009-11-18 18:15:00
A study by neuroscientist William C. Mobley, MD, PhD, chair of the Department of Neurosciences at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, and colleagues at Stanford University Medical School has demonstrated a possible new approach to slowing the inevitable progression of cognitive decline found in Down?s syndrome. The study, published in Science Translational Medicine on November 18, revealed two important new findings about Down?s syndrome in a mouse model: 1) there is evidence that synaptic terminals involved in neurotransmission are damaged long before the cells show degeneration; and 2) while cell signaling is damaged, the receptors are not, but are functioning and still trying to find signals. ?If we focus only on damage to cell bodies, we underestimate the importance of timing and the potential window for treatment of Down?s syndrome,? said Mobley, one of the nation?s leading experts in the disease. He added that this study in mice shows some of the ea...

What is Broken Heart Syndrome?
2009-05-01 06:48:00
There is hope for people suffer from "Broken Heart Syndrome", a condition first described by Japanese researchers in the early 1990s Patients with this condition, called Takotsubo cardiomyopathy,transient apical ballooning or stress cardiomyopathy, are often misdiagnosed as having a masive heart attack. In fact, what they have suffered from is a surge in adrenalin(epinephrine) and other stress hormones tha have temporaily stunned the heart. This could be brought on by distressing news, such as the unexpected death of a loved one. According to Reuters report, Dr Richard REgnante from Warren Alert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, and his colleagues, said that it appears that the syndrome is temporary and completely reversible. The symptoms typically mimic a heart attack and tend to soon after an intense physical or emotional event. However, the long term outlook is excellent and nearly all patients experience a full recovery of heart condition. The researchers created a...

Post-traumatic stress tied to metabolic syndrome
2009-02-06 18:50:00
A new study of U.S. veterans suggests that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and metabolic syndrome, the group of symptoms that increases heart disease and diabetes risk, may be linked. Dr. Pia S. Heppner of the Veterans Affairs San Diego Health System in La Jolla and her colleagues found that the more severe a person?s PTSD symptoms, the more likely they were to also have the metabolic syndrome. Evidence is mounting that exposure to trauma can worsen physical health, including increasing heart disease risk, Heppner and her team note in the journal BMC Medicine. 
Biblical Battered Wife Syndrome

Biblical Battered Wife Syndrome: Christian Women and Domestic Violence is article written by Kathryn Joyce on Religion Dispatches. Kathryn is also the author of, "Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement"This article was written about Saddleback Church's position on domestic violence, divorce, and how they feel it should be handled. I had written prior how I think their stand on how you 'can't escape the pain' so you need to separate and figure this things out is an unrealistic view of the overall picture he is attempting to address. The article in question goes into that audio I spoke about, and also another one that speaks about miserable marriages. Tom Holladay decided that he could qualify what he feels as domestic violence as being, "habit of beating you regularly". A SHOVE doesn't qualify you see!Three writers that I have spoke about here prior were quoted within the article. Jocelyn Andersen of Woman Submit! Christians & Domestic Violence and Danni Moss...
Kawasaki Syndrome Travolta Son death
2009-01-09 19:37:00
John Travolta’s 16 year old Son, Jett Travolta died a few days back. The Travolta’s said that he was suffering from a disease called as “Kawasaki Syndrome” and all of a sudden, the term has caught the headlines of every magazine and news website.I was a bit curious to know what this disease was and hence I dug through everything that was available. The disease had strange symptoms and was not that widely spread, hence the availability of very little knowledge. Kawasaki syndrome is also known as ‘lymph node syndrome’, ‘mucocutaneous node disease’, ‘infantile polyarteritis’ and ‘Kawasaki disease’. It is an inflammation (vasculitis) of the middle-sized arteries. It affects many organs, including the skin, mucous membranes, lymph nodes, and blood vessel walls, but the most serious effect is on the heart. It is called so, because it was first described by Tomisaku Kawasaki in 1967 in Japan. Kawasaki Syndrome is predo...

One of the reasons behind legalizing abortion was the anguish of parents having disabled children. Ironically, the ability to prevent many cases of retardation via vaccines (e.g. against Rubella, a common cause of profound retardation in the past), treatment (congenital syphillis), or surgery (meningomyelocoel and hydrocephalus) has improved over the last 40 years. Other diseases that in ...

Irritable Male SyndromeStressed out? Grumpy? Moody? If you're a guy and these words describe your mental state, you may be suffering from "irritable male syndrome." If you're a woman who is living with a man who has turned from "nice" to "mean," you are suffering as well. I was recently interviewed by WebMD to explore this important area of health.Below is a portion of that interview, along with some Q&A. MD: Welcome to WebMD Live, Jed. Thank you for joining us today. What is irritable male syndrome? Is this a new problem or a newly recognized problem?JD: This is really based on 40 years of my own clinical research as well as responses from 50,000 men who have taken the IMS quiz. We've discovered why millions of men are becoming angry and depressed, and why they so often vent their frustration on the women they love the most. Irritable male syndrome (IMS) can be defined as a state of hypersensitivity, frustration, anxiety, and anger that occurs in males and is associated with...

The Anacin Syndrome
2008-08-09 02:06:00
Is your business suffering from The Anacin Syndrome? And what is The Anacin Syndrome? The Anacin Syndrome is my metaphore for all that has to do with the dropping of standards. During the 50's, when brands like Anacin were at their peak, words like "competent" meant that you were just one step above moron. Now the word competent means you practically own a Ph.D. Well these days being "average" has gotten so bad that you can go to the head of the class just by showing up. But why did things change? How did these lax standards come about? Well, about the time brands like Anacin were popular, moms had just started going into the workforce for the first time. They'd come home tired, stressed and hungry - and still faced a home and family to manage! Hence Anacin's most memorable ads. Moms snapping at little children! Close up on mom: hand to forehead: Voiceover: "Sure you have a headache. You're tense and irritable. But don't take it out on her!" Why if you ran that ad today you'd ...
