Emergency contraception: barriers to access

Emergency Contraception: Barriers to Access Access to emergency contraception (EC or "the morning-after pill") has greatly increased in the last few years. Three brands of EC – Next Choice®, Plan B One-Step®, and Levonorgestrel Tablets – are available without a prescription for individuals 17 and older. ella® - a prescription-only EC product – provides women with a longer window of time in which to prevent pregnancy. Yet barriers remain, preventing truly unencumbered access to this important method of pregnancy prevention.

HOW TO USE THE QUESTIONNAIRE When answering, please consider your symptoms from the last 6 months.


Analysis on the Use of Synonymous Adverbs: Maybe, Perhaps, Possibly, Probably, and Likely Analysis on the Use of Synonymous Adverbs: Maybe, Perhaps, Possibly, Probably, and Likely  The main objective of the current paper is to provide fuller definitions of five synonymous adverbs that express uncertainty: Maybe, perhaps, possibly, probably, and likely. In order to achieve this goal, 178 examples are collected from both spoken and written corpora and closely examined from semantic, stylistic, pragmatic, and syntactic points of view. The major findings are as follows: Maybe is used frequently in a casual context; perhaps is salient in its pragmatic use, such as hedges, when used in speech; possibly conveys a less degree of likelihood due to its theoretical property; probably frequently occurs with non-human propositions; and likely often accompanies good evidence and is the highest in the likelihood hierarchy. Observations under different perspectives are amalgamated to provide a clearer grasp of each adverb.

APPLICATION NOTE hERG K+ channel currents and pharmacology using the IonFlux system Introduction HERG (human ether-a go-go-related gene) K+ channels are strongly expressed in the heart and are responsible for a rapid component (IKr) of the repolarizing currents in the cardiac action potential (Curran ‘95; Sanguinetti ‘95). Loss of function mutations affect-ing hERG are associated with some inherited forms of long QT syndrome (LQTS) and increase the risk for a serious ventricular arrhythmia, torsade de pointes (Tanaka ‘97; Moss ‘02). HERG K+ channel inhibition by both cardiac and noncardiac drugs has also been identified as the most common cause of acquired, drug-induced LQTS that may lead to sudden cardiac death (Vandenberg, Walker & Campbell ‘01). In fact, the side effect of hERG K+ channel inhibition is one of the major reasons of drug withdrawal or drug re-labeling in recent years, therefore in vitro evaluation of the effects of drugs on hERG channels expressed heterologously in mammalian cells has been recommended as part of the preclinical safety package by the International Conference on Harmoniza-tion (ICHS7B Expert Working Group, ‘02). The gold standard of evaluating drug effects on hERG K+ current is manual patch-clamp recording. However, this low-throughput, high-cost approach is


Pseudotumor Cerebri: Brief Review of Clinical Syndrome and Imaging Findings SUMMARY: PTC is a clinical entity of uncertain etiology characterized by intracranial hypertension. The syndrome classically manifests with headaches and visual changes in women with obesity. Tradition-ally, imaging ruled out secondary causes of elevated CSF pressure but now may reveal findingsfrequently seen in patients with PTC, including the following: flattening of the globe, an empty sella,an enlarged ONS, protrusion and enhancement of the optic nerve head, and increased tortuosity of theoptic nerve. Novel imaging methods, including MR venography, have additionally identified sinovenousstenosis as a potential indicator of PTC.

Fluoride 2005;38(1):11–22 Research report 11 WATER FLUORIDATION AND CRIME IN AMERICA Manchester, NH, USA SUMMARY: A four-part study explores possible connections between waterfluoridation and crime in America. Part A, Media-reported crime database andfluoridation, presents an observational database of violent crimes, mostly multipleshootings, and finds an unusually high percentage of them associated with waterfluoridation, suggesting the existence of a "fluoride-related" category of crime. Alow-end threshold for the toxic effects of fluoridation of 0.3 ppm is identified, andthe term "fluoridated" is defined here as having a fluoride level of 0.3 ppm or higher.In Part B, Online crime database and fluoridation, a published database of year 2000crime data for 327 US cities over 75,000 population, representing 80 millionAmericans, was expanded to include fluoridation data for these cities. Waterfluoridation was consistently associated with high crime rates at all populationlevels. Part C, Book crime database and fluoridation, examines year 2000 crimestatistics for six major crimes in the same 327 cities according to their fluoridationstatus. Cities having natural fluoridation, or which use silicofluorides or sodiumfluoride, are shown to have substantially higher crime levels than nonfluoridatedcities. Part D, Lead related crime, quantifies the amount of crime historicallyassociated with lead intoxication, thus identifying a remainder which may beassociated with fluorides. This study presents a data-backed hypothesis about onepossible cause of crime; it is not a definitive statement about crime causality.

Network Spinal Analysis Care - Literature Review The following is a list of peer-reviewed publications involving Network Spinal Analysis Care. Further information regarding Network Spinal Analysis Research currently in process or programs where information on Network Spinal Analysis Research has been presented is available at On a standing wave Central Pattern Generator and the coherence problem Jonckheere E, Lohsoonthorn P, Musuvathy S, Mahajan V, Stefanovic M. Biomedical Signal Processing and Control 5 (2010) 336–347. doi:10.1016/j.bspc.2010.04.002 An electrophysiological phenomenon running up and down the spine, elicited by light pressure contact at very precise points and thereafter taking the external appearance of an undulatory motion of the spine, is analyzed from its standing wave, coherence, and synchronization-at-a-distance properties. This standing spinal wave can be elicited in both normal and quadriplegic subjects, which demonstrates that the neuronal circuitry is embedded in the spine. The latter, along with the inherent rhythmicity of the motion, its wave properties, and the absence of external sensory input once the phenomenon is elicited reveal a Central Pattern Generator (CPG). The major investigative tool is surface electromyographic (sEMG) wavelet signal analysis at various points along the paraspinal muscles. Statistical correlation among the various points is used to establish the standing wave phenomenon on a specific subband of the Daubechies wavelet decomposition of the sEMG signals. More precisely, ∼10 Hz coherent bursts reveal synchronization between sensory-motor loops at a distance larger, and a frequency slower, than those already reported. As a potential therapeutic application, it is shown that partial recovery from spinal cord injury can be assessed by the correlation between the sEMG signals on both sides of the injury. Reorganizational Healing: A Paradigm for the Advancement of Wellness, Behavior Change, Holistic Practice, and Healing Epstein DM, Senzon SA, Lemberger D. Journal of Alternative and Complimentary Medicine. May 2009;15(5):461-64. PMID: 19450165 Reorganizational Healing, (ROH), is an emerging wellness, growth and behavioral change paradigm. Through its three central elements (the Four Seasons of Wellbeing, the Triad of Change, and the Five Energetic Intelligences) Reorganizational Healing takes an approach to help create a map for individuals to self-assess and draw on strengths to create sustainable change. Reorganizational Healing gives individuals concrete tools to explore and use the meanings of their symptoms, problems, and life-stressors as catalysts to taking new and sustained action to create a more fulfilling and resilient life.
