Anxious people may not be sensitive enough

Anxious people have long been classified as “hypersensitive” — they’re thought to be more fearful and feel threatened more easily than their counterparts. But new research from Tel Aviv University shows that the anxious may not be hypersensitive at all — in fact, they may not be sensitive enough. As part of a study on how the brain processes fear in anxious and non-anxious individuals, Tahl Frenkel, a Ph.D. candidate in TAU’s School of Psychological Sciences and the Adler Center for Research in Child Developmental and Psychopathology, working with her supervisor Prof. Yair Bar-Haim, measured brain activity as study participants were shown images designed to induce fear and anxiety. Using an EEG to measure electrical activity caused by the neuronal activity that represents deep processing of these stimuli, the researchers discovered that the anxious group was actually less stimulated by the images than the non-anxious group. The results of the study were recently publishe

Please support Wikipedia

From Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales Google might have close to a million servers. Yahoo has something like 13,000 staff. We have 679 servers and 95 staff. Wikipedia is the #5 site on the web and serves 474 million different people every month – with billions of page views. Commerce is fine. Advertising is not evil. But it doesn't belong here. Not in Wikipedia. Wikipedia is something special. It is like a library or a public park. It is like a temple for the mind. It is a place we can all go to think, to learn, to share our knowledge with others. When I founded Wikipedia, I could have made it into a for-profit company with advertising banners, but I decided to do something different. We’ve worked hard over the years to keep it lean and tight. We fulfill our mission, and leave waste to others. If everyone reading this donated $10, we would only have to fundraise for one day a year. But not everyone can or will donate. And that's fine. Each year just enough

Evidence Mounts Linking Acetaminophen and Asthma

THE HYPOTHESIS Acetaminophen increases the risk of childhood asthma . THE INVESTIGATOR Dr. John T. McBride, Akron Children’s Hospital. The sharp worldwide increase in childhood asthma over the past 30 years has long perplexed researchers, who have considered explanations as varied as improved hygiene and immunizations. Over the last decade, however, a new idea has emerged.

From Richard Harris

LISTEN TO SOME SWEET MUSIC FROM MY NEW CD "LOVE'S SWEET SONG" AVAILABLE @   Do YOU believe in Santa Peace?   TODAY'S THOUGHT IS FROM "Yes Virginia There Is a Santa Claus" ... Virginia O'Hanlon, an 8 year old girl, asked "Is there a Santa Claus?" Francis Pharcellus Church famously answered in 1897 in his editiorial in the New York Sun. "Yes, Virginia, there IS a SANTA CLAUS. He exists as certainly as LOVE and GENEROSITY and DEVOTION exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its HIGHEST BEAUTY AND JOY. ... Thank God! He lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue TO MAKE GLAD THE HEART OF CHILDHOOD." PEACE ON EARTH WILL COME TO STAY WHEN WE LIVE CHRISTMAS EVERY DAY!  With LOVE, RESPECT, and PEACE my friend,  Richard Please give my music a listen and let me know what
