O transtorno bipolar é uma das doenças mais enigmáticas da atualidade. Seus sintomas confundem-se com os de outros distúrbios psíquicos, o que dificulta o diagnóstico. Quando finalmente se detecta o problema, é preciso lidar com outros obstáculos - o preconceito e a falta de informação, tanto da sociedade como da classe médica. Em linguagem esclarecedora e abordando casos reais, o psiquiatra Teng Chei Tung responde a pacientes e familiares todas as principais perguntas sobre o transtorno bipolar. Possíveis causas, tipos de tratamento, medicamentos disponíveis e conseqüências para a família, bem como o conceito de normalidade, são algumas das questões discutidas nesta obra polêmica e inovadora.

Mary Lincoln is a lightning rod for controversy. Stories reveal widely different interpretations, and it is impossible to write a definitive version of her life that will suit everyone. The thirteen engaging essays in this collection introduce Mary Lincoln’s complex nature and show how she is viewed today. The authors’ explanations of her personal and private image stem from a variety of backgrounds, and through these lenses—history, theater, graphic arts, and psychiatry—they present their latest research and assessments. Here they reveal the effects of familial culture and society on her life and give a broader assessment of Mary Lincoln as a woman, wife, and mother. Topics include Mary’s childhood in Kentucky, the early years of her marriage to Abraham, Mary’s love of travel and fashion, the presidential couple’s political partnership, and Mary’s relationship with her son Robert. The fascinating epilogue meditates on Mary Lincoln’s universal appeal and her enigmatic personality, showcasing the dramatic differences in interpretations. With gripping prose and in-depth documentation, this anthology will capture the imagination of all readers. Univeristy Press Books for Public and Secondary Schools 2013 edition

The pathological behavior of a modern man is indebted to the complexity of various environmental encounters acting as unspoken, disconcerting even trivial events of day to day life. Each one of us is exposed to such psychic and socio-cultural strains which are inherent in the particular environments and will sooner or later succumb to the need to fidget and to perform small trivial acts, displaced from usual functional context and injected into quite alien behavior sequences, in an attempt to avoid behavioral stalemates of contradictory urges. It was surprising when somebody had said: such and such garments make me uneasy and sick or I feel completely relaxed with certain blend of Garments. We wanted to make sure, if these influences have lasting maturational influences on the body systems. Because an overload of stress, which may arrive as a big chunk or in a series of small bits, may be a Physical source of insult i.e. accidental trauma, malnutrition, disturbed sleep or Psychological i.e., disturbed family, life, loss of a job, personal insecurity etc. But the more appropriate definition of a stressor is given in the most recent literature. A stressor could be an environmental source, in more scientific words "Extroceptive" i.e., natural calamities, chronic occupational stress, over crowding, territorial conflicts, imposition of stressful behavioral task, etc. This could also be a naturally evoked "Agonistic" behavioral response, such as resulting from confrontation with an attacking animal or an on-rushing car. But the more complex behavioral response of an individual is observed in response to activation of the cutaneous receptors, due to Noxious or Nociceptive Stress. Initially, only painful stimuli were attributed to have such influences. But later scientists used loud noise and noxious cold stimulation and produced similar behavioral responses. Our experience with the Synthetic Blend of Garments showed similar behavioral reactions. We wanted to confirm the local static, thermal and mechanical influences instigated due poor sweat absorption of the Synthetic Blend of Garments could really produce nociceptive type of behavioral responses.

When you are diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, you could use a coach and all the advantages that you can find. Bipolar is a serious illness that requires an integrated approach to solving the enigma. This is an informal guide that pulls no punches and talks about everything from sexual promiscuity to manic spending to delusions of grandeur. Over twenty years, I have learned to lessen its power over my existence. It can become less of an illness and, over time, more of an opportunity. We need to look at bipolar in new ways to get different results. Having a reassuring friend who’s been there makes the difference. I teach many basic, easy to learn approaches. A recent test reader, who was in the mire of illness, described the book as a bridge out: she returns to The Bipolar Guide to review the principles that helped her to live. I strive in this book to take alternative approaches to work through the negative illness traits to plug into the gift side. I have been through the highs and the lows of manic-depression and have embraced the advantages, and continue to live an enhanced life. I promote responsibility in this book—there are no excuses, just potential. You can harness bipolar to serve you: it is a tough break-in of the wild horse, but it is possible. We need to look at bipolar in new ways. People need friendly assurance and prodding to surmount the challenges of bipolar. This is a bold responsible approach to living successfully with Bipolar Disorder. Two decades of tough manic-depression lessons are passed to you. This informal guide will be your friend and coach to assist you in finding your own way: we need to learn new approaches to attain different results in our lives.

The Enigma Of Sunspots

Sunspots are dark areas of irregular shape on the Sun's surface, some as large as 50,000 miles (80,000 km) in diameter. They move across the surface, contracting and expanding as they go, and are often big enough to be seen with the naked eye. Given their elusive cyclical nature, and the fact that it is both painful and dangerous to observe the Sun directly, it is little wonder that records of sunspots are almost non-existent in Europe before the 17th century. Mentions of sunspots were ignored by eary astronomers and philosophers, who followed Aristotle in believing that the heavens were perfect. Judit Brody charts the fascinating history of our efforts to understand sunspots, and the lives and quarrels of those dedicated astronomers who first charted their mysterious patterns and whose records are still of vital importance. Today solar emissions are thought to coincide with major effects in global weather patterns, and a deeper scientific understanding of the Sun's nature and behaviour, using modern telescopes and other instruments, has never been more important.
