    Internet pornography, the gateway drug of sexual addiction

    in Entertainment

    http://www.haaretz.com/jewish-world/rabbis-round-table/.premium-1.626206


    By Rabbi Yehoshua Looks | Nov. 16, 2014 | 2:11 PM


    “The lack of sexual morality that pervades this society is all over the place, and the Orthodox community, no matter how traditional, is not immune from this, and it creates terrible problems,” Rabbi Barry Freundel said in the Washington Jewish Week. “ography and its accessibility is wrecking marriages. It’s two keystrokes away. You get on the computer, you hit the button twice and you’re there. I have not counseled a couple in any level of relationship in the last five years where ography hasn’t been an issue.”


    Freundel was quoted in this article on September 17, 2014, only weeks before he was arrested on voyeurism charges.


    Why is it that ography, particularly Internet ography, pervades modern life? Is it becoming an increasing threat to society?


    Join Zaiyah and Uptown as they discuss this and other important topics on this weeks edition of Zaiyah's House.

    Understanding Addiction with Dr. Nora Volkow ( NIDA )

    in Current Events

    For much of the past century, scientists studying drug abuse labored in the shadows of powerful myths and misconceptions about the nature of addiction. When scientists began to study addictive behavior in the 1930s, people addicted to drugs were thought to be morally flawed and lacking in willpower.


    As a result of scientific research, we know that addiction is a disease that affects both the brain and behavior. We have identified many of the biological and environmental factors and are beginning to search for the genetic variations that contribute to the development and progression of the disease. Scientists use this knowledge to develop effective prevention and treatment approaches that reduce the toll drug abuse takes on individuals, families, and communities.


      Dr. Nora Volkov is the  director of the National Institute of Drug Abuse will teach us today about this important topic.
