About mental ownership

about mental ownership special research report Photo by
The American Veterinary Medical Association says that 63% of all American households own at least one pet, the majority of which are cats or dogs. This is very common; a boy and his dog is almost an iconic image  standing for youth. At this point in time, people are becoming more aware of health benefits of pets. These benefits are varied and encompass both the mental aspects of well being and the physiological. This article will take a look at some research regarding these benefits. First and most evident is the lessening of loneliness. In a study conducted by Zasloff and Kidd in 1994 about loneliness and pet ownership ...
MENTAL SPACE: The Stresses of Pet-Ownership
DISCLAIMER: This post is about the stress I am experiencing as a BRAND NEW, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, PET OWNER. It is not about how I feel about our new Kitten. I absolutely love our new kitten. In fact, while I'm at work, I actually miss him and think about it. But that does not stop me from being stressed out. Going from not ever having owned a pet to now owing one at my age is truly a life-changing experience. I speak about the stress of such a life-changing experience. Please do NOT assume that I have a poor attitude towards my new kitten. Please do not tell me to return my kitten or give it up. That is not the ... market research, surveys and trends
Eminem: Mental Health Underlies His Musical “Recovery” and 'Relapse”
Eminem is back from the dead. After ending a long professional silence with a barely heard thump - last year's "Relapse" - Eminem has thundered back onto the scene of mainstream hip-hop with "Recovery." Once again, Eminem is ruling music charts, monopolizing radio waves, and raking in millions with hit-singles and highly publicized tours. Why? As it turns out the name says it all - "Recovery" versus "Relapse." Let that marinate. We'll come back to it. Let's back up. Eminem has always had strong musical talents. His lyrics are witty and suggest cognitive strengths with verbal ... market research, surveys and trends

In 2001, 1.458 million American families filed for bankruptcy. To investigate medical contributors to bankruptcy, we surveyed 1,771 personal bankruptcy filers in five federal courts and subsequently completed in-depth interviews with 931 of them. About half cited medical causes, which indicates that 1.9–2.2 million Americans (filers plus dependents) experienced medical bankruptcy. Among those whose illnesses led to bankruptcy, out-of-pocket costs averaged $11,854 since the start of illness; 75.7 percent had insurance at the onset of illness.

Mental Health, United States, 2004: Index
The aim of this chapter is to describe the referral source for adults and children admitted to inpatient and outpatient mental health programs using a nationally representative 1997 Client/Patient Sample Survey . The President's New Freedom Commission on Mental Health report of 2003 found widespread fragmentation in mental health services that causes clients to slip through interorganizational "cracks (NFCMH, 2003)." According to the report, a goal of transforming the mental health system is to ensure that "early mental health screening, assessment, and referral to services are common practice."

Police to experiment with blinding 'Dazer Laser'?
Perhaps "Don't Dazer Laser me, bro" doesn't quite trip off the tongue. However, police in the Northwest may soon be experimenting with the Dazer Laser, a tool which, well, shoots, blinds, and disorients. The Dazer Laser is a gun that emits a green light at suspects and causes them to temporarily lose their sight and wonder whether they might have been transported to an alternative galaxy. And, according to King 5 News in Seattle , police in the Northwest might soon be the first to experiment with zapping a green light at a suspected evildoer. The Dazer Laser, allegedly, has less deleterious side effects than ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
When Shirley Sherrod Was First Wronged by the USDA
It was 1985, 20 years after her father was murdered by a white man who was never prosecuted, and the nearly 6,000-acre collective farm she had helped form in the early 1970s to create a sort of African-American utopia in the midst of Georgia's white farming community was going under. Governor Lester Maddox, a segregationist, called the tract of land "Sharecropper City," and refused to sign off on a grant that could have helped the families who owned the farm stay afloat. They had applied for loans from the Department of Agriculture's Farmers Home Administration, but often they were turned down or approved ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Question about mental health and gun ownership? - Yahoo! Answers
Hi everyone, i'm planning on purchasing my first firearm this weekend but i've been reading about those who are prohibited from buying them. There is a statement on gun applications stating you can't purchase a gun if you've been committed to a mental institution.

( i am now 24, and very much better ) And i recall the people who checked me in said that I would still be able to get a firearm if i should choose to down the road, because it was all on a voluntary basis and not ordered by a court or ...
