Loving Truly: An Epistemic Approach To The Doxastic Norms Of Love, 2022 Cal Poly Humboldt

Loving Truly: An Epistemic Approach To The Doxastic Norms Of Love

The International Journal of Ecopsychology (IJE)

If you love someone, is it good to believe better of her than epistemic norms allow? The partiality view says that it is: love, on this view, issues norms of belief that clash with epistemic norms. The partiality view is supposedly supported by an analogy between beliefs and actions, by the phenomenology of love, and by the idea that love commits us to the loved one’s good character. I argue that the partiality view is false, and defend what I call the epistemic view. On the epistemic view, love also issues norms of belief. But these say simply (and ...

McNair Research Journal SJSU

This research report examines past research studies on marijuana therapy interventions involving individuals who have Autism Spectrum Disorder, Epilepsy, and Tourette’s Syndrome. These results do not ensure marijuana as a permanent method to cure adverse symptoms for these vulnerable populations. However, these large-scale studies have shown a trend of marijuana being effective for some participants involved in decreasing and/or improving their symptom frequency. This report will contribute to the knowledge pool on the safety and effectiveness of marijuana therapy.

International Journal of Transpersonal Studies Advance Publication Archive

The global personal development market was valued at $38.28 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow an additional 5% from 2020 to 2027. Many of these workshops promise to be transformational. This secondary analysis study examined transformative, transpersonal, and noetic aspects of personal development workshops. We found that 74% of post-survey records endorsed that participants experienced a moment of clarity or profound insight during their workshop. In addition, 66% endorsed that participants had experienced at least one noetic experience, and 84% endorsed at least one transpersonal experience.

Pharmacophore-Based Virtual Screening From Indonesian Herbal Database To Find Putative Selective Estrogen Receptor Degraders, Aisyah F. Prawiningrum, Rafika Indah Paramita, Linda Erlina 2022 Universitas Indonesia

Pharmacophore-Based Virtual Screening From Indonesian Herbal Database To Find Putative Selective Estrogen Receptor Degraders, Aisyah F. Prawiningrum, Rafika Indah Paramita, Linda Erlina

Indonesian Journal of Medical Chemistry and Bioinformatics

Most breast cancer cases are luminal subtypes which are estrogen receptor-sensitive or progesterone receptor-sensitive. Common treatments include surgery and adjuvant endocrine therapy by prescribing selective estrogen receptor degraders (SERD). SERD is a type of medication that inhibits estrogen receptor (ER) activity by degrading it, and as a result, downregulating it. The current FDA-approved SERD can only be administered through intramuscular injection. The aim of this study is to find orally non-toxic and bioavailable herbal alternatives of SERDs in Indonesian Herbal Database by doing virtual screening using LigandScout. The hit compounds were further analyzed using a molecular docking tool, AutoDock. Three ...

Molecular Docking Of Vitamin D3 Receptor (Vdr) With Potential Herbal Substance As Ligand To Prevent Excessive Hair Loss In Menopausal Women, Aditya Parawangsa, Syailendra Karuna Sugito, Ariestiana Ayu Ananda Latifa, Nadya Dinda Safira, Shafa Ayuthaya, Raissa Rahmalia Az Zahra

Indonesian Journal of Medical Chemistry and Bioinformatics

Hair loss is commonly found in menopausal women. Hair loss is one of the consequences of hormonal dynamics when a woman stops having menstrual cycle, which affect calcium and vitamin D level in the body. Although it is clear enough that hormonal adjustment is required, older people and another sociodemographic factor prefer herbal-based therapeutic rather than synthetic-based due to tradition and positive experience factors. This study is an in-silico study which aims to point out the possible ligand candidates that can work as Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) agonists. We perform molecular docking using Autodock version 4.2 with the criteria ...

Analysis And Visualization Of Molecular Docking 2hi4 Protein, Innas Widiasti

Indonesian Journal of Medical Chemistry and Bioinformatics

The crystal structure of the human microsomal complex P450 1A2 with alpha-naphthoflavone, a cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme is particularly important, as it is abundant in the human liver and alters a more diverse xenobiotic array than any other group of metabolic enzymes. CYP1A2 is abundantly found in the liver and involved in the metabolism of about 10% of clinically used drugs metabolized by CYP enzymes. The current drug discovery and development mostly uses high-throughput screening (HTS). However, this regular method is time-consuming and costly. To address the issue, an advanced drug discovery and development method namely chemical compound database screening ...


No One Should Have To Give Birth Alone: An Analysis Of The Efficacy Of Community-Based Doula Programs Serving Ethnic Minorities In San Francisco, Maria Margaret Nelson 2022 University of San Francisco

No One Should Have To Give Birth Alone: An Analysis Of The Efficacy Of Community-Based Doula Programs Serving Ethnic Minorities In San Francisco, Maria Margaret Nelson

Master's Projects and Capstones

Adverse birth outcomes for both the parent and the child disproportionately affect people of color. Evidence demonstrates that one of the ways to mitigate these negative consequences is through the utilization of a doula, a trained birth companion that is not a medical provider but whose role it is to physically and emotionally support the patient through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Community-based doula programs, where the doula is of the same cultural background as the client, are particularly effective in improving birth outcomes in communities of color by providing culturally competent care and helping to navigate a healthcare system that ...

Patient Experience Journal

In 2020, the COVID-19 global pandemic changed the landscape of healthcare delivery and with it the need to better address team member well-being. Aside from patients and their families, healthcare professionals were among the most affected and at high risk for suffering psychological distress, including increased stress, depression, anxiety, substance use, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Prior to COVID-19, healthcare workers were already experiencing a high rate of job burnout, depression, and suicide. The pandemic brought in sharp focus the essential and urgent need for healthcare facilities to acknowledge the importance of team member well-being and the provision of spaces such ...

Zero Balancing With The Dizzy Client, Mary L. Behrens, P.T., Czb

Journal of Transformative Touch

“Dizziness” is a colloquial term for the general experience individuals associate with a variety of problems with the vestibular system. Because “dizziness” is a general description of a symptom that may have a range of causes, seeking care from various medical specialists, the root problem is often missed, potentially leaving clients suffering for years. Over the last 10 years of clinical practice, I have found Zero Balancing to be an effective treatment for many clients referred for vestibular disorders.

The goal of this paper is to shed light on the reasons for my clinical decision making and understand the patterns ...

Herbal and dietary supplement (HDS) use has grown exponentially in the United States. Unfortunately, the incidence of HDS-related liver injury has proportionally increased. Despite the potential for certain HDSs to cause clinically significant liver injury, they are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. Recent efforts have been made to regulate HDSs but are far removed from the scrutiny of prescription medications. Scant literature exists on HDSs and their risks of causing liver injury. In this comprehensive review, we examine trends of HDS use in the United States and the pathophysiologic mechanisms of drug-induced liver injury (DILI) of certain ...

Increasing Rosella Farmers Capacity By Double Diamond Design Thinking Approach, Florence Pribadi, Muliasari Kartikawati, Juli Karijati Njoto, Nurul Illahi Kusuma Sari, Farah Shania Nur

ASEAN Journal of Community Engagement

Rosella (Hibiscus sabdariffa Linn) is a well-known family medicinal plant (Toga). Spoilage due to the weather, and the consequent low revenue gained from selling dried rosella are two of the main challenges currently being encountered by rosella farmers. Regardless of previously practicing community engagement including regular training from local authorities, farmers are still encountering difficulties to implement the training materials, consequently experiencing loss. Method incorporated in this community engagement is the double diamond design thinking that ensures putting the farmers first in all stages. Method chosen for drying rosella was a mixed solar dryer equipped with heating lamps and a ...
