‘I Just Hope Everyone Survived.’ Search-and-Rescue Begins in Florida Keys

(MIAMI) — Authorities sent an aircraft carrier and other Navy ships to the Florida Keys to help with search-and-rescue operations Monday as a flyover of the hurricane-battered islands yielded what the governor said were scenes of devastation. “My heart goes out to the people in the Keys,” Gov. Rick Scott said. He added: “I just hope everyone survived.” He said boats were cast ashore, water, sewer and power were knocked out, and “I don’t think I saw one trailer park where almost everything wasn’t overturned.” The scale of the damage inflicted by Irma began to come into focus as the hurricane weakened to a tropical storm and finally pushed out of Florida, but not before dealing a parting shot by triggering severe flooding around Jacksonville in the state’s northeastern corner. Around midday, Irma spread misery into Georgia and South Carolina as it moved inland with winds at 60 mph. During its rainy, windy run up the full 400-mile length of Florida, Irma swamped homes, uprooted trees, flooded streets, snapped miles of power lines and toppled construction cranes. “How are we going to survive from here?” asked Gwen Bush, who waded through thigh-deep floodwaters outside her central Florida home to reach National Guard rescuers and get a ride to a shelter. “What’s going to happen now?

By Alex Fradera “In the dark, in the quiet, in the lonely stillness, the aggrieved struggle to rescue sleep from vigilance.” This arresting sentence introduces a new review of insomnia in Behaviour Research and Therapy that addresses a troubling fact observed in sleep labs across the world: poor sleep is not sufficient to make people consider themselves to have the condition… and poor sleep may not even be necessary.

Conclusion: Lower frontal cortex mI may indicate a disturbed second messenger system. Frontal cortical mI may thus be linked to the pathophysiology of depression and concomitant sleep symptoms among maturing adolescents. Short sleep and daytime sleepiness may be associated with frontal cortex mI independently from depression.Neuropsychobiology 2017;75:21-31

A considerable hallmark for the genesis of several mental disorders is represented by repetitive thought, a well known risk and perpetuating factor for several psychopathological models (Segerstrom et al., 2000). Repetitive thought can be defined as a process requesting subject ’s mind to think “attentively, repetitively or frequently about one’s self and one’s world” (Segerstrom et al., 2003). Although firstly described in depressive and anxiety disorders, repetitive thought also plays a fundamental role in causing and maintaining Insomnia Disorder (ID) (Harvey, 2002).
