Putting the “self” in self-deprecation: When deprecating humor about minorities is acceptable

This study tested how source knowledge affects enjoyment of self- deprecating humor about a minority group. Participants made aware that the sourc of a message poking fun at people with disabilities was himself disabled had more positive evaluations of the cartoon and author than participants un-aware of his disability. Participants initially given no source information judged the author more positively the second time when they were given follow-up source information. Finally, some effects were moderated...

Procrastination and the Shifting Political Media Environment: An Experimental Study of Media Choice Affecting a Democratic Outcome

The shifting media environment is expected to have a variety of effects on political knowledge and behavior. An experimental study was conducted to assess the influence of media environment on news consumption, perceptions of media experience quality, and success on a political outcome. In addition, procrastination is introduced as a potentially important individual-difference variable with assessments offered for both its main effects and its ability to moderate the influence of media environment. Media environment complexity...

Timaeus' Explanation of Sense-Perceptual Pleasure

Much has been written about Plato's accounts of pleasure in Republic 9 and Philebus, almost nothing about his account in Timaeus. But with respect to sense-perceptual pleasure specifically, the account in Timaeus is unique and extremely informative. This paper examines, in turn, the physiology and the psychology of sense-perceptual pleasure, focusing on the text at 64a2–65b3, but drawing on a wide range of passages from elsewhere in the dialogue. The paper concludes with a further...

Courage and Knowledge at Protagoras 349E1-351B2

At Protagoras 349E1-350C5 Socrates argues for the identity of courage and knowledge, and at 350C6- 351B2 Protagoras objects to Socrates’ argument. Between 1961 and 1985, a few valuable contributions in English were made to the interpretation of these passages. None, however, is entirely satisfactory. And in the last twenty years, among some cursory treatments in studies not particularly focused on these passages, no notable progress has been made. The objective of this paper is to...

THE ROLE OF CASPASE-4/11-GASDERMIN D PATHWAY IN PROMOTING VASCULAR INFLAMMATION IN CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects 13.4% of adults in America; and 38% in people aged 65 years or older[1]. In addition, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in CKD patients with end-stage kidney disease. CKD is associated with chronic inflammation, which contributes to the progression of CVD[2]. Furthermore, CKD alter apolipoprotein profile and elevate plasma lipid levels. It has been reported that 68.8% of CKD patients are associated with hyperlipidemia[3]. Therefore, hyperlipidemia...

Biogeographic patterns, species interactions, and mechanisms of coexistence in nearshore marine communities

The maintenance of ecological communities through space and time is driven by complex processes which often operate simultaneously. Understanding the mechanisms that underlie patterns of species diversity and coexistence across scale remains a key focus for ecologists. Empirical experiments across large spatial and temporal scales are critical to rigorously test prevailing ecological theory and identify context dependencies. Such studies are necessary to determine regional variation in the effects of local-scale processes, which should be explicitly...

An Afrocentric Analysis of the Philosophies of Howard Thurman

Perceptions of the Podiatric Medicine Profession: A Survey of Medical Students in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Methods: In this cross-sectional survey study, responses regarding podiatric education and scope of practice were collected via a 16-question, self-reported, anonymous online survey distributed to MSs at one osteopathic...

‘Better safe than sorry’: examining trauma as an obstacle to empowerment and social change in a U.S. intimate partner violence intervention

Communication for social change (CSC) research often addresses ‘empowerment.’ This paper argues that CSC must better incorporate trauma healing into the concept of empowerment, and thus into a revised model of social change. Data from a U.S. intimate partner violence intervention are used to provide evidence for the validity of, and usefulness of, such a revised model. Three broad theoretical arguments are offered regarding trauma within CSC: (1) trauma is rarely addressed outside peacebuilding interventions,...

Better than text? Critical reflections on the practices of visceral methodologies in human geography

This co-authored intervention discusses themes on the thinking and doing of visceral research. 'Visceral' is taken here as that relating to, and emerging from, bodily, emotional and affective interactions with the material and discursive environment. There has recently been a distinct and necessary turn within the social sciences, particularly in human geography, towards the need for more viscerally-aware research practices. Building on such work, this collective intervention by leading visceral scholars offers two key contributions:...

Community Participation Factors and Poor Neurocognitive Functioning among Persons with Schizophrenia

Poor neurocognitive functioning among individuals with schizophrenia is typically conceptualized as resulting from a disease process. The objective of this article is to further expand understanding of poor neurocognition beyond pathogenesis toward a perspective that also incorporates community participation factors. This article focuses on three such factors—sedentary behavior, loneliness, and poverty—that have been demonstrated to be related to neurocognition and are highly prevalent among individuals with schizophrenia. This article provides an overview of the research...
