What 1989 And The Golden Girls Tell Us About Medicine Today

Today, 1989 may be most associated with Taylor Swift: It is the album that won her a second Grammy for Album of the Year. Not only that, it happens to be the year Swift was born--such a long, long time ago! People under 35 have no personal memory of 1980s pop culture, which is ironic since Swift's album in part pays homage to it. In the real 1989 (no offense to Swift and the 10 co-producers who made the album), all sorts of revolutions took place: Mr. Gorbachev tore down that pesky wall, for example. America's greatest antagonist, the Soviet Union, collapsed in 1989. Brazil conducted its first democratic presidential election since 1960. And so on. Today, it's hard to say whether America's greatest existential threat may be Vladimir Putin or his Number-One American Fan, Donald Trump. If the CDC is to be believed, it's the Zika virus. Two years ago (2014, the year Swift's 1989 came out), the CDC was most concerned about Ebola, to the extent that the U.S. public health agency was criticized for "roughing up" humanitarian aid workers who had helped to treat those with Ebola who were suffering abroad. Way back in the early 80s, the CDC was criticized for doing too little about the emerging and little-understood AIDS crisis: Specifically, in 1982, the CDC cautioned the public that four groups of people had to worry about developing AIDS: homosexual or bisexual men, IV drug users, people with hemophilia, and Haitian people.

CONCLUSIONS: These findings support the use of patient experiences and feedback to aide product development. In addition, post-9/11 veterans support the use of eScreening to assist health screening. However, evaluating the eScreening program in more diverse veteran groups and Veterans Affairs settings is needed to improve the generalizability of these findings to the larger veteran population.

Authors: Teixeira JC, Jackson PJ Abstract Distinguishing between central and peripheral causes of vertigo can be challenging not only in an acute setting but also in chronic settings. A thorough review of systems and physical exam can assist providers in differentiating central versus peripheral etiologies and the need for urgent imaging. In this case, a 47-year-old man presented with vertigo, right-sided hearing loss, right-sided headache, and right-sided facial pain that began 4 weeks before while the patient was on a cruise ship. His physical exam findings were notable for anisocoria with right pupil 3.5 an...

DISCUSSION: This group, comprising the mothers of young children, is particularly interesting in view of the credit constraints experienced by younger households during the financial crisis in Ireland. Both sets of results are consistent with qualitative studies which have shown that mortgage difficulties can lead to depression, anxiety and poor mental health, and that high status groups experience shame and self-blame when they experience a financial loss. It remains to be seen if this will have a long-term effect on the mental health of either the mothers or their children. PMID: 32060231 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Kolomeets NS, Uranova NA Abstract There is increasing evidence to support the notion that oligodendrocyte and myelin abnormalities may contribute to the functional dysconnectivity found in the major psychiatric disorders. The putamen, which is an important hub in the cortico-striato-thalamo-cortical loop, has been implicated in a broad spectrum of psychiatric illnesses and is a central target of their treatments. Previously we reported a reduction in the numerical density of oligodendrocytes and oligodendrocyte clusters in the prefrontal and parietal cortex in schizophrenia. Oligodendrocyte clusters contai...

Ali, Mouloud El Moudane, Jamal Taoufik, Ill-Min ChungAbstractCarbon steel is a commonly used alloy in petroleum refining equipment. Nonetheless, its weak corrosion resistance is a perpetual problem for these industries. In the present study, we manifest the usefulness of a novel 1,2,4-triazole derivative, namely 5-hexylsulfanyl-1,2,4-triazole (HST) in inhibiting the carbon steel (CS) corr...
