In the present scenario, women have entered in diverse fields and are successful. Teaching is a profession in which majority of women are employed and is a demanding job. The effectiveness of educational system largely depends on active, resourceful and competent teachers. Teachers carryout their role effectively, but at the same time face stress as they are dealing with young children who are difficult to handle. The housewives also face stressors in their day-to-day life which affects health and emotions. Hence the study on emotional competence and stress on health status of 105 primary teachers and 50 housewives was conducted in Dharwad in 2009. Majority of the teachers and housewives indicated average to competent level of emotional competence (88-89.5%), high general stress levels (66-74.3%) and mildly affected health status (88.6-92.0%). Majority teachers showed average to high stress. Increase in emotional competence reduced stress levels and health problems (neurosis)...
The author has involved in this area of research for nearly three years.Locus of Control is a rare area of research in the management discipline, but this area is widely covered in the psychology. So it had motivated the author to select this topic. It studies the level of Locus of Control of private sector bank employee and public sector bank employee and how Locus of Control varies among the managers and executives.It also analyse the effect of Locus of Control on the personal variables such as age,sex, marital status,education and family size and job related variables such as designation, monthly income , experience and nature of work.The author had classified the Locus of Control into three category Viz., Internality Locus of Control, Externality Chance Locus of Control and Externality Powerful others Locus of Control.The author finally given various suggestion to improce the Locus of Control among the employees.
Electroencephalography (EEG) is a neuroimaging technique utilized to record the brain's electrical activity from the surface of the scalp. Between the smooth, sinusoidal EEG rhythms of regular brain waves and the clearly pathological abnormalities seen in epilepsy lies a controversial and brief aberration called the sharp wave. A sharp wave, also known as an epileptiform or paroxysmal discharge, is time-limited electrical event that represents several thousands of excitable neurons firing synchronously. While some researchers and clinicians approach sharp waves as important factors of symptomatology and treatment design, others consider sharp waves as benign. This work analyzed symptom presentation in psychiatric patients with sharp waves. Sharp waves were both highly prevalent and correlated with symptom presentation. Interestingly, isolated, highly focal sharp waves were associated with more severe pathology while those distributed to homologous brain regions are hypothesized to...

Bounded Rationality and Medical Choices invites readers to explore the land of rationality. Traditional views of rationality tend to see decision makers as possessing superhuman powers of reason and absolute knowledge in taking decisions. To understand choices and decisions in the real world –as common medical decisions of laypersons-, we need a different, more psychologically plausible notion of rationality, and this book provides it. It is about fast and frugal heuristics--simple rules for making decisions when time is pressing and knowledge is scarce But when and how can such fast and frugal heuristics work? Can judgments based simply on one good reason be as accurate? Which are the information on which these heuristics work? This book explores these questions in the frame of medical choices and medical consultation. As an interdisciplinary work that is both useful and engaging, this book will appeal to a wide audience. It is ideal for researchers in cognitive psychology, health...

The study was designed to assess the stress and coping styles of parents of disabled children. In this regard the following hypotheses were formulated: Mothers and Fathers differ in terms of their scores on parental stress and family coping. Parents of children who have single disability differ in scores on parental stress and family coping from those of children with multiple disabilities. Certain demographic factors, namely, urban-rural status and income of the parents, working status of mothers, age and gender of disabled children influence the stress level and coping of the parents. By using purposive sampling technique the study was conducted on (N = 200) respondents (100 mothers and 100 fathers). PSI developed by R. Abidin (1995), FCS developed by M. Annapurna (1999) and socio-demographic sheet developed by the researcher have been used. The data was analysed by using t-test, correlation and regression analysis. Results revealed that the parents of children with disabilities...
This research work is an earnest attempt to discover whether the three approaches to intellectual assessment viz. psychometric, chronometric and projective, measure the same 'intelligence' or something different. It is a unique correlational and factor analytical study of the relationship of Rorschach indices of intelligence and measures of visual and auditory reaction time with timed and untimed measures of fluid and crystallized intelligence, after experimentally eliminating the effect of anxiety which is known to have an inconsistent relationship with test performance. The sample was administered four intelligence tests, measuring fluid and crystallized intelligence under both timed and untimed conditions. The subjects' simple and choice reaction times, both auditory and visual, were also measured individually. Finally, the subject' responses on the Rorschach test were obtained. After factor analyzing the data, nine factors representing different dimensions were found necessary...
Adult Children of Alcoholics/Addicts (ACOAs) are a unique population, and awareness of the issues that these individuals have endured are finally coming to light. It has been said that ACOAs often times suffer trauma that is just as impactful as soldiers who are returning home from war. As such, this book offers insight for ACOAs to better understand their family of origin and what their personal experiences as a child can mean for them as an adult. Aptly named, Guessing at Normal provides a way to comes to terms after surviving a chaotic family system and home life and be able to be an emotionally sound and aware adult. This text also offers a way for counselors to better understand ACOA clients and highlights the importance of understanding family roles and rules and the concepts of grief and loss for this population; as the issues that surround ACOAs can continue years after they have left their childhood homes.

It is shown that dried plums are highly effective in preventing and reversing ovarian hormone deficiency-associated bone loss in a rat model of osteoporosis. Moreover, it is shown that dried plum supplementation significantly increases indices of bone formation in postmenopausal women. The bone protective effect of dried plum, in part, may be due to its polyphenol content. The intent of this study is to investigate the bone formation mechanisms of action of polyphenol extracted from dried plum using a cell culture system. Overall, the finding of the present study suggests that dried plum polyphenol extract enhances bone formation and suppresses the production of inflammatory molecules known to be harmful to bone.

And to formulate recommendation guidelines to improve nursing management of mechanically ventilated patient during such period.
Childhood obesity is a condition where excess body fat negatively affects a child's health or well-being. Due to the rising prevalence of obesity in children and its many adverse health effects, it is being recognized as a serious public health concern. The greatest risk factor for child obesity is the obesity of both parents. The escalation of obese children is due to the upsurge of technology, increase in snacks and portion size of meals, and the decrease in the physical activity of children. So, the most important issue here is to increase the physical activity and avoiding the sedentary life.
