In 2012 a study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that reports the percentage of patients abusing alcohol increased from 7.6% to 9.6% two years after gastric bypass surgery - potentially creating 2,000 alcoholics every year in the US.
There is more than one theory on why this occurs. Some say it is addiction transfer: a patient switches an addiction to food to an addiction to alcohol. More recent evidence suggests an anatomical explanation - metabolic and hormonal changes triggered by gastric bypass surgery that leave patients especially vulnerable to alcoholism. Maybe it is both - or neither? The truth is nobody is 100% sure of why alcoholism rates increase post surgery.
If you are struggling with alcoholism post-surgery, however, the reason why may not be as relevant as what to do about it. There are unique challenges that face people whose alcoholism may be attributed to gastric bypass surgery, and on this episode of the Bubble Hour we will discuss this startling trend. We will share more information about why experts feel this increased vulnerability to alcoholism occurs, and speak with special guest Jessica about her own experience with gastric bypass surgery, alcoholism and recovery.
We are also excited to welcome Diane Grimaldi, DNP, PMHCS, BC as a guest on the show and an expert on this issue.
Diane started her psychotherapy practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1984 after receiving her Masters Degree in Adult Mental Health Nursing from Boston College and becoming a board certified Clinical Specialist in Psychiatric Nursing.
In 2014 she received a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. For more information about Diane and her practice please visit www.grimaldicounseling.com.
The World of Ideas Show tonight 3/29/15 @8:30PM EST. After the weekly review of the week, host Kasaun Henry introduces Part 3 of the “Black Lives Series.” On this episode, Kasaun discusses how black culture is not only something people inherit, but that it is also something that people choose. We will also hear Kasaun interview various people on the streets of Harlem who share what being black means to them.
The "Black Lives Series" is an exploration of a number of significant Black-American themes and issues that shed light on the state and future of black people in the twenty-first century. Some of these are, black identity, black solidarity, black culture and its triumphs and flaws, black education, incarceration, leadership and more. Kasaun attempts to clear the midst of the flawed perception of race and culture in America and lay down a path for positive change.

Most of us are familiar with the mental disorders that can affect humans, such as anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsion, or post traumatic stress disorder; but can animals also be affected by these afflictions?

Throughout mankind there has been a history of confrontaion, manipulation, segregation, and institutionalization among nations. There is even doucumented proof and evedince of one nation "legally" overtaking, torturing and enslaving another nation. Not to mention the current killings and the thriving enterprise of modern day incarceration. However, if we all close our eyes, then we all look exactly the same. I guess its's safe to say something like "TWINS". So is it about the color of our skin, or is it deeper?
ROMANS 9:13-16Amplified Bible (AMP)
"13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated (held in [a]relative disregard in comparison with My feeling for Jacob).
14 What shall we conclude then? Is there injustice upon God’s part? Certainly not!
15 For He says to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy and I will have compassion (pity) on whom I will have compassion.
16 So then [God’s gift] is not a question of human will and human effort, but of God’s mercy. [It depends not on one’s own willingness nor on his strenuous exertion as in running a race, but on God’s having mercy on him.]"

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never has, and it never will." Frederick Douglass
Confinement in a prison cell creates a whole set of memories that a person may want to forget. What is it like to return home after a long period of being controlled and restricted? What psychological damage to ones self esteem needs to be repaired and how can that be done? What unseen emotional scars need healing, and can a person's family really understand what he or she went through? How does one offer support to a family member or friend returning from prison
CIRCA 2015...More WOMEN are on psychiatric medications than ever before and staying on them far longer than was ever intended. Sales of anti-depressants and ant--axiety meds have been booming in the past two decades, and they've been recently outpaced by anti-psychotic drugs, this quote from a psychiatrist..."I must tell you this is INSANE!"
Women are moody (that's debatable)...by evolutionary design, we are hard-wired to be sensitive to our environments, empathic to our children's needs and intuitive of our partners' intentions. Women's emotionality is a sign of health, not disease, it is a source of POWER-OUCH!
Women are under constant pressure to...etc.
Women are twice as likely to...etc.
Monthly women experience emotions and...etc.
Over-medicated emotions become...etc.
Stop labeling sadness and anxiety as...etc.
Deputies Making a Change (DMAC) is a youth mentoring program that addresses the incarceration rate among young children. This program targets those who are failing in school, at risk of being incarcerated, or have problems with authority. This program will consist of tutoring, physical fitness, life skills, sessions with mentors, video instruction and many other tools will also be utilized.
The main objective is to enhance the thinking ability of the neighborhood youth, as well as promote positive behavior among at-risk children and as a result produce better students that are eager to advance their education rather than participate in criminal activity. Seven core values will be utilized to ensure the structure of the program, discipline, education, accountability, commitment, motivation, respect for authority, and self reliance. These values are designed to manage the child’s behavior, while implementing discipline and education.
