the e-mail newsletter accompanying the
Resources for the Teaching of Social Psychology website at
http://jfmueller.faculty.noctrl.edu/crow



First, I must be a proud papa and brag a little about my daughter, Lisa.   She appeared on the game show Jeopardy! this month and came away a two-time champion!  Jeopardy gave her the nickname Lisa “Let’s bet it all” Mueller because when she found daily doubles she would usually “bet it all” and win!  You can see a brief compilation of conversations between her and the host Alex Trebek and a couple of her daily doubles here



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cq6MerXTt4w



The full episodes are on YouTube for you bigger Jeopardy! fans.

Aggression:  Video games and aggression in kids

Once of those most hotly debated topics in psychology is whether video games affect kids’ behavior,
particularly aggressive behavior.  Here are a few articles from APS on the topic.

Conformity: Another replication of Milgram’s obedience studies

Gender & Culture: “Nearly 1 in 4 men worldwide think it’s fine for bosses to expect sex from an employee”

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/care-sex-harassment-poll_us_5aa22282e4b086698a9c34c4

Wow.


Gender & Culture: “Kids draw female scientists more often than they did decades ago”

Group Influence:  Testosterone and diversity in group performance

https://www.psychologicalscience.org/news/minds-business/testosterone-on-the-team.html

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/national-geographic-racist-coverage_us_5aa8f433e4b018e2f1c32b0f

National Geographic invited a researcher to analyze its content since it began in 1888.

ccessful-mass-replication-of-the-professor-prime-effect/

The original study found that if you imagined you were a college professor, rather than a “hooligan,” you
would perform better on a subsequent trivia test.  The unsuccessful replication means it’s a good day for
hooligans.


Social Judgment: “Experimenters’ expectations may shape priming results”

https://www.psychologicalscience.org/observer/experimenters-expectations-may-shape-priming-results

What happens when a priming study uses or does not use double-blind methodology?  These researchers test

https://www.psychologicalscience.org/news/releases/watching-others-makes-people-overconfident-in-their-ow

and not necessarily because they are better


The Self:  People want to be compared with self, not others, in performance reviews

  • WIPO Statistics
    http://www.wipo.int/ipstats/en/


    "We cooperate with intellectual property (IP) offices from around the world to provide our stakeholders with up-to-date IP statistics. We also publish statistical reports on worldwide IP activity and on the use of WIPO-administered treaties in the protection of IP rights internationally.

    Reliable IP statistics are an important tool in understanding trends in business and technology and in the use of the IP system worldwide and across different countries.
    Data information ↓

    IP data published in these pages are taken from the WIPO Statistics Database. The database contains:

    Data provided by national/regional IP offices for WIPO's Annual IP Data Survey. The data are collected at an aggregate level by various breakdowns (e.g. number of patent filings or grants by office and origin, etc.). A continuing effort is made to improve the quality and availability of IP statistics. It is difficult to obtain data for all IP offices with all possible breakdowns, however every effort is made to cover data for as many offices and countries as possible; and

    Data compiled by WIPO during the application process of international filings through the Patent Cooperation Treaty, the Madrid System and the Hague System.

    In addition, indicators of patent families and fields of technology are developed by WIPO based on data from the PATSTAT database, which is maintained by the European Patent Office.

    IP data reported in these pages are based on the following concepts:

    Country of origin: used to categorize IP data by resident (domestic) and non-resident (foreign). The residence of the first-named applicant (or inventor) recorded in the IP document (e.g. patent or trademark application) is used to classify IP data by country of origin.

    Resident and non-resident: a resident IP filing refers to an application filed by an applicant at its national IP office. For example, an application filed by an applicant resident of Japan at the IP office of Japan is considered as a resident filing for Japan IP office data. Similarly, a non-resident filing refers to an IP application filed by an applicant at a foreign IP office. For example, an application filed at the IP office of China by an applicant residing in France is considered a non-resident filing for China IP office data. The IP grant (registration) data are based on the same concept.
    Filing and grant date: the IP filing data are based on the date of filing. The IP grant (registration) data are based on the date of grant (registration). The IP data by field of technology are based on the date of publication and the patent families data are based on the priority (or first filing) date."

    Data

    Statistical data
    IP statistics data center

    "WIPO IP Statistics Data Center is an on-line service enabling access to WIPO’s statistical data. Users can select from a wide range of indicators and view or download data according to their needs. This service is intended to be a tool for IP professionals, researchers and policymakers worldwide.
    IP statistical country profiles

    Statistical country profiles provide information on patents, utility models, trademarks and industrial designs. They cover different dimensions of IP activity, including incoming and outgoing filings, the share of filings in different technological fields, total patents in force, and the use of international IP systems by applicants."

    http://dfr.jstor.org/??view=text&&helpview=about_dfr


    About Data for Research (DfR):

    "Data for Research is a free service for researchers wishing to analyze content on JSTOR through a variety of lenses and perspectives. DfR enables researchers to find useful patterns, associations and unforeseen relationships in the body of research available in the journal and pamphlet archives on JSTOR. To this end we provide data sets of documents to researchers: OCR, metadata, Key Terms, N-grams and reference text.

    JSTOR incorporates metadata and OCR text from many different sources. We work to mitigate any inconsistencies, but you may come across issues with datasets, such as duplicate OCR, missing OCR, or incomplete metadata. Please contact us if you encounter data issues.

    Using the site:

    Through a faceted interface, researchers can explore the entire JSTOR archive, quickly and easily defining content of interest through an iterative process of searching and results filtering. By creating a DfR account, you can download the metadata, word frequencies, citations, key terms, and N-grams of up to 1,000 documents. The interface operates on Boolean logic but should you find your query especially difficult to build, we’re happy to help."

    How to Use the United States Government Agency Section
    of the Statistics Resources Research Guide for Statistical Data Sources
    for Specific Topic Searches

    Finding and using statistical sources is a challenge for most students and many researchers. Finding government statistical sources are even more of a befuddlement. Requests for govenment information, let alone statistics, have dwindled in recent years in live reference situations. Providing a tool that shows, agency by agency, where government statistics hide in a group of links to database search results contributes to statistical literacy and to information literacy for government statistical sources and to the uses for government statistics.

    Even though the actual publications found in these searches are not free, all of the databases used are. Over fifty government agencies of the United States federal government are now included and this is a work in progress as is the entire statistics resource guide. United States government agencies do provide statistical data for other countries.

    Many teachers tell students not to use Google for serious research as I religiously did until October 2014 when I saw one web address on the MedLib-L discussion group. I have no idea what the post was about, I just noticed one web address and as the lesson evolved, I started joining the students rather than trying to change them in regards to using Google Web Search as part of my database searching research tool.

  • Google Trends Article FROM Wikipedia
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Trends



    Google Trends is a public web facility of Google Inc., based on Google Search, that shows how often a particular search-term is entered relative to the total search-volume across various regions of the world, and in various languages. The horizontal axis of the main graph represents time (starting from 2004), and the vertical is how often a term is searched for relative to the total number of searches, globally. Below the main graph, popularity is broken down by countries, regions, cities and language. Note that what Google calls "language", however, does not display the relative results of searches in different languages for the same term(s). It only displays the relative combined search volumes from all countries that share a particular language (see "flowers" vs "fleurs"). It is possible to refine the main graph by region and time period. On August 5, 2008, Google launched Google Insights for Search, a more sophisticated and advanced service displaying search trends data. On September 27, 2012, Google merged Google Insights for Search into Google Trends.[1]

    Google Trends From Wikipedia

    Google Trends is a public web facility of Google Inc., based on Google Search, that shows how often a particular search-term is entered relative to the total search-volume across various regions of the world, and in various languages. The horizontal axis of the main graph represents time (starting from 2004), and the vertical is how often a term is searched for relative to the total number of searches, globally. Below the main graph, popularity is broken down by countries, regions, cities and language. Note that what Google calls "language", however, does not display the relative results of searches in different languages for the same term(s). It only displays the relative combined search volumes from all countries that share a particular language (see "flowers" vs "fleurs"). It is possible to refine the main graph by region and time period. On August 5, 2008, Google launched Google Insights for Search, a more sophisticated and advanced service displaying search trends data. On September 27, 2012, Google merged Google Insights for Search into Google Trends.[1]

    New York City Fire Department (NYFD) in Images and Videos

    From the Wikipedia

    The New York City Fire Department, officially the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY), is a department of the government
    of New York City[4] that provides fire protection, technical rescue, primary response to biological, chemical, and radioactive hazards,
    and emergency medical services to the five boroughs of New York City.

    .

    The New York City Fire Department is the largest municipal fire department in the United States and the second largest in the world
    after the Tokyo Fire Department. The FDNY employs approximately 10,200 uniformed firefighters and over 3,940 uniformed EMTs,
    paramedics, and Fire Inspectors. Its regulations are compiled in title 3 of the New York City Rules. The FDNY’s motto is New York’s Bravest.
    The FDNY serves more than 8 million residents within a 320 square mile area.[5]

    .

    The FDNY headquarters is located at 9 MetroTech Center in Downtown Brooklyn,[6] and the FDNY Fire Academy is located on
    Randalls Island.[7] There are Three Bureau of Fire Communications alarm offices which receive and dispatch alarms to appropriate units.
    One office, at 11 Metrotech Center in Brooklyn, houses Citywide, Brooklyn, and Staten Island Fire Communications. The Bronx houses
    Manhattan and the Bronx, and Queens houses Queens.

    Core Competencies

    A fire department sprinkler siamese connection in Manhattan
    A citywide Incident Management System plan released by the Office of the Mayor on May 14, 2004 set forth several “core competencies”
    which determine which agency has the authority to direct operations.[33] FDNY core competencies include:

    Fire suppression

    Pre-hospital emergency medical care

    Search and rescue

    Structural evacuation

    CBRNE/HAZMAT life safety and mass decontamination

    Cause and origin, and arson investigations

    Fire prevention inspections

    .

    snip

    .

    The New York City Fire Department is made up of fire companies, similar to military companies of men and women. Each fire company operates
    a single type of Fire apparatus and has four shifts of firefighters and company officers. Each company responds to emergency calls from one
    of the city’s 217 firehouses.

    .

    There are currently six different types of fire companies in the New York Fire Department which all operate distinct types of apparatus:
    198 Engine Companies, 143 Ladder (or Truck) Companies, 5 Rescue Companies, 7 Squad Companies, 3 Marine (or Fireboat) Companies,
    and the Hazardous Materials (Haz-Mat) Company. In addition to these six types of fire companies, there are numerous other specialized units that
    are operated by the Special Operations Command (S.O.C.), the Haz-Mat. Division, and the Marine Division. Each fire company has a specific role
    at the scene of an emergency.

    .

    Each type of fire company utilizes a certain type of fire apparatus, colloquially known as “rigs”.

    .

    Engine companies[edit]

    FDNY Engine Companies are tasked with securing a water supply from a fire hydrant, then extinguishing a fire. The apparatus of an Engine is known
    as a Pumper Truck and carries a pump (usually 1,000-2,000 gallons per minute), a water tank (usually 500 gallons), fire hoses of varying diameters
    (usually 1 3/4″, 2 1/2″, 3 1/2″ and 4″) in 50′ lengths, emergency medical supplies, ground extension ladders, and an assortment of tools.

    .

    Ladder companies[edit]

    FDNY Ladder Companies (also known as Truck Companies) are tasked with search and rescue, forcible entry, and ventilation at the scene of a fire.
    A Ladder Company can operate three types of Ladder Trucks: an Aerial Ladder Truck, equipped with a 100′ aerial ladder mounted at the rear of the
    apparatus; a Tower Ladder Truck, equipped with either a 75′ or 95′ telescoping boom and bucket mounted in the center of the apparatus; a Tractor
    Drawn Aerial Ladder Truck, or Tiller/Tractor Trailer, equipped with a 100′ aerial ladder. A Ladder Company carries various forcible entry, ventilation,
    and rescue tools to deal with an assortment of fires and emergencies, including motor vehicle accidents.

    .

    Rescue companies[edit]

    FDNY Rescue Companies are composed of the elite, highly and specially trained, most experienced members of the New York Fire Department.
    A Rescue Company is tasked with responding to and dealing with specialized fire and rescue incidents that are beyond the scope and duties of a
    standard Engine or Ladder Company. Rescue Companies operate Rescue Trucks, colloquially known as “tool boxes on wheels”, which carry a wide
    variety of specialized tools and equipment to aide in operations at technical rescues, collapse/confined space rescues, water/dive rescues,
    high-angle/below-grade rescues, etc. They respond to all fires within their response district as well.

    .

    Rescue 1 serves Manhattan below 125th St. on the West Side and below 116th St. on the East Side. Rescue 1’s quarters are located at
    530 W. 43rd St. in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Midtown, Manhattan.

    .

    Rescue 2 serves central and northwestern Brooklyn. Rescue 2’s quarters are located at 1472 Bergen St. in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn.

    .

    Rescue 3 serves the Bronx and Harlem above 125th St. on the West Side and above 116th St. on the East Side. Rescue 3’s quarters are located

    Rescue 5 serves Staten Island and parts of southern Brooklyn. Rescue 5 is quartered with Engine 160 and the Chief of the 8th Division
    at 1850 Clove Rd. in the Grasmere neighborhood of Staten Island.

    Squad companies

    FDNY Squad Companies are also composed of specially trained firefighters of the New York Fire Department. Squad Companies were initially established
    by the FDNY to serve as “manpower companies” to supplement the manpower and operations of Engine and Ladder Companies. Today, Squad Companies
    can function as either Engine or Ladder Companies at the scene of a fire, but are also equipped with similar equipment and specialized tools as the Rescue
    Company. In particular, members of a Squad Company are highly trained in mitigating hazardous materials (Haz-Mat) incidents, supplementing the FDNY’s
    single Haz-Mat Company. Squad Companies also operate a Freightliner M2-based medium rescue as a second piece of apparatus in response to Haz-Mat incidents.

    .

    Squad 1 serves eastern Brooklyn and Staten Island. Squad 1’s quarters are located at 788 Union St. in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn.

    .


    Squad 18 serves Manhattan below 125th St. Squad 18’s quarters are located at 132 W. 10th St. in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.
    .


    Squad 41 serves the southwestern Bronx and Manhattan above 125th St. Squad 41’s quarters are located at 330 E. 150th St. in the South Bronx
    neighborhood of the Bronx.
    .

    Squad 61 serves the northeastern Bronx. Squad 61 is quartered with the Chief of the 20th Battalion at 1518 Williamsbridge Rd. in the Morris Park neighborhood of the Bronx.

    .

    Squad 252 serves western Brooklyn. Squad 252’s quarters are located at 617 Central Ave. in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn.

    .

    Squad 270 serves eastern Queens. Squad 270 is quartered with the Chief of the 13th Division at 91-45 121st St. in the Richmond Hill neighborhood of Queens.

    .

    Squad 288 serves western Queens. Squad 288 is quartered with Haz-Mat. 1 at 56-29 68th St. in the Maspeth neighborhood of Queens.
    Hazardous materials company

    .

    The FDNY Hazardous Materials (Haz-Mat) Company, Haz-Mat 1 (quartered in Queens), responds to all major city-wide hazardous materials incidents, building collapses,
    contamination-related incidents, terrorism-related disasters, major emergencies, and a variety of other incidents in which their services may be needed.
    Like the Rescue and Squad Companies of the FDNY, members of Haz-Mat Company 1 are experienced and specially trained to deal with hazardous situations.
    The Haz-Mat Company operates a Haz-Mat Truck, similar to a Rescue Truck, which carries a variety of equipment to deal with hazardous situations. Haz-Mat. 1
    also operates a smaller Rescue Truck which carries extra equipment not carried on the company’s main piece of apparatus. The Haz-Mat Company is supplemented by the
    Squad Companies primarily, the Rescue Companies, and a handful of Engine Companies whose members are certified Haz-Mat Technicians. These Engine Companies,
    like the Squad Companies, also operate smaller step vans that carry Haz-Mat equipment.

    .

    snip

    .

    Fireboats

    In addition to its engine, truck, and rescue companies, FDNY operates three Class I fireboats as Marine Companies:

    .

    Marine 1 Three Forty Three

    Marine 6 Bravest

    Marine 9 Fire Fighter II

    Three older fireboats are kept in reserve: John D. McKean, Governor Alfred E. Smith, and Kevin C. Kane. A former FDNY Marine Unit, the John J. Harvey, is notable as having
    returned to active service as Marine 2 on September 11, 2001, and providing firefighting services for 80 hours following the attack.[36]

    .

Young Athletes: Injuries And Prevention

Published Thursday 9 August 2012

https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/248796.php


.



High profile events like the Olympics bring the hope that witnessing and celebrating dedicated athletes at the top of their game, will inspire young people to take up sport and physical activities that help them develop confidence, lead more satisfying lives, and not least, secure long-term health by reducing their risk for developing chronic illness like diabetes, obesity, cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

.

But unfortunately, if they don't take appropriate measures, young athletes can instead, end up in pain, on a different path to poor health, due to avoidable sport injury.

.

James R. Andrews, a former president of the American Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), said in May this year, the US has experienced a tremendous rise in the number of young people taking up sport. Estimates show 3.5 million children aged 14 and under receive medical treatment for sport-related injuries, while high-school athletes account for another 2 million a year.

.

"This makes sports the leading cause of adolescent injury. Along with time away from school and work, these injuries can have far-reaching effects," said Andrews.

Baseball Teams Need to Protect Fans from Foul Balls -
and US Courts Need to Lift MLB's Special Liability Exemption

The Conversation

Tens of thousands of fans are gathering at Major League Baseball ballparks around the country for hot dogs, home runs, their favorite players autographs and the fresh grass on the field.

.

Few fans will consider the possibility that they could be blinded or suffer a serious head injury by a ball or bat leaving the field of play. In reality, such injuries occur much more frequently than many may realize, with a 2014 analysis finding that more than 1,750 fans are hurt each year by batted balls at MLB games.

.

Who should be held responsible legally when injuries like this occur?

.

In a new paper, University of Georgia business student Zachary Flagel and I argue that its time for courts to abolish an outdated rule that has historically immunized baseball teams from liability.
The Baseball Rule

.

Under a century-old legal doctrine commonly known as the Baseball Rule, U.S. courts have almost uniformly held that professional baseball teams are not liable for these kinds of injuries to fans, who are stuck with the medical and rehab costs.

.

Specifically, as long as a team takes basic precautions such as putting nets immediately behind home plate and ensuring that there are enough screened seats to meet anticipated demand, then under the Baseball Rule it will not be held legally responsible for fans injuries.

How to Avoid, Recognize and Treat Concussion in Sports

The Conversation

https://tinyurl.com/ydz2lbcm


.


.



Recognize, remove, rest and recover before returning to sport. Those are key points about sport-related concussion stated in the 5th International Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport.

.

The Canadian Guidelines on Concussion in Sport have been developed based on this statement and were recently released by Parachute Canada, a charitable organization focused on injury prevention, and its expert advisory group.

.

The good news is that most people who suffer a concussion will recover in the initial days and weeks following injury. However, some will have ongoing symptoms. While concussions may occur in sport, there are many benefits to physical activity and sport participation for both youth and adults.

.

I am a physiotherapist and researcher (assistant professor and clinician scientist) at the Sport Injury Prevention Research Centre, Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Calgary. My research focuses on the prevention and treatment of sport-related concussion in children, youth and adults, with special emphasis on the role of the neck and balance systems.

.

A concussion is a type of a brain injury that occurs following a trauma to the head or body. Symptoms can come on immediately or may take hours to gradually evolve. The most common symptom following concussion is a headache. However, a number of other symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, fatigue, difficulty with concentration, neck pain and other complaints may also occur. Lying motionless, clutching the head, being slow to get up, wobbling and appearing dazed are some of the observable signs.

Olympic Committee gives USA Gymnastics board less than a week to resign

The U.S. Olympic Committee is demanding all USA Gymnastics board members resign over the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal. More than 150 women and girls, including numerous athletes and Olympic gymnasts, have accused the former U.S. gymnastics team doctor of abuse. A judge sentenced Nassar to up to 175 years in prison this week.

The Olympic Committee says if board members don't resign by Wednesday, USAG will lose its status as a national governing body, reports CBS News' Jon LaPook. Four of the 21 board members have already stepped down. USAG said it "embraces the requirements."

In the wild, adult animals instinctually try to shield and protect their young from predators.

.

Human beings, however, add an element of thought and contemplation to most situations. The human wolf will infiltrate into the company of parents to gain their confidence, all with the secret agenda of gaining unsupervised access to children.

.

Thats a fabulous way to put it, said Susan B. Sorenson, a professor of social policy and executive director of The Ortner Center on Violence & Abuse in Relationships at the University of Pennsylvania. Weve seen the process occur whether its been through churches, schools or through sports. The trusted adult, not just by the kids but by the parents and the family, and the community can end up taking advantage of kids. That becomes devastating for the kids as well as the families.

.

Abuse of athletes by coaches has again exploded into the American conscience. Last week it was announced Michigan State settled lawsuits filed by the victims of Larry Nassar, the disgraced sports doctor who worked for the university, after more than 300 women accused him of sexual abuse. In January, more than 150 of those women including several Olympic-medal winning gymnasts testified in a hearing. He was sentenced to, essentially, life in prison.

.

snip

.


Studies have shown that 90 percent of children who are abused know their abuser.

.

.

Through his work as president and CEO of the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation, Steve Salem says his organization has developed safety guidelines that all organizations that involve work with children should adopt as a preventative tool against child abuse. It includes background checks for all coaches.

.

He says that sometimes the people in those organizations, including parents, become their own worst enemies.

.

The kind of responses we get is, We know there is a problem, but we dont have a problem, Salem said. It can become so disappointing. Theyre in denial.

Micro Concussions May Alter Football Players' Brains

By Tim Newman

Published Monday 9 April 2018

Medical News Today

https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/321430.php


.

.



A new study finds that players of contact sports have differences in their brain activity when compared with people who play non-contact sports. The authors ask whether micro concussions are to blame.

.

There has been a significant drive, over recent years, to push the issue of concussion to the front of people's minds.

.

It's now common knowledge that someone who is concussed should not return to the field of play and should take care to rest.

.

The study that we are discussing today relates to a more common but much less understood phenomenon: subconcussive impacts, which are also known as micro concussions.

.

The study authors define micro concussions as "impacts to the skull, including those that do not produce acute concussion but nevertheless result in clinical signs and symptoms."

.

Across a college football season, a player might pick up well over 1,000 micro concussions. And, as research intensifies, scientists are growing increasingly concerned that they may have a significant cumulative effect.

.

.


Overall, though, the study only adds to the pile of inconclusive findings. Although differences were seen footballers' visual centers were busier accurate interpretation is impossible at this stage.

Michigan States $500 Million for Nassar Victims Dwarfs Other Settlements

By Mitch Smith and Anemona Hartocollis

May 16, 2018

New York Times

.

.


Victims of Lawrence G. Nassar, the Michigan State University physician who sexually abused young women under the guise of medical treatment, would receive $500 million from the university in a settlement that is believed to be the largest ever reached in a sexual abuse case involving an American university.

.

It dwarfed the size of the settlement reached in the sex abuse scandal at Pennsylvania State University. And it was larger than many of the settlements that followed the child sex abuse crisis in the Roman Catholic Church.

.

I think the number being so large sends a message that is undeniable, that something really terrible happened here and that Michigan State owns it, said John Manly, a lawyer for many of the 332 women who sued the university over abuse by Dr. Nassar. When you pay half a billion dollars, its an admission of responsibility.

.

Women who say they were abused by Dr. Nassar still have lawsuits against U.S.A. Gymnastics, the United States Olympic Committee and others, and the settlement with Michigan State could add pressure in those cases. The settlement by Michigan State, a public university that is the states largest, also sent a loud warning to other colleges about the potentially devastating cost of ignoring misconduct.

.

The agreement comes as officials at the University of Southern California are under fire for failing to report a gynecologist who faced allegations of misconduct for decades, and as other colleges find themselves grappling with a growing number of sexual abuse and assault complaints over the last few years. By late Wednesday, officials at U.S.C. said they had received about 85 complaints about George Tyndall, the gynecologist.

Larry Nassar's Ex-Boss at Michigan State Charged with Sexual Assault,
Harassment of Students

by Will Hobson

March 27, 2018

.


The former dean of Michigan State Universitys school of osteopathic medicine sexually assaulted and harassed four female students, and also mishandled a 2014 complaint that Larry Nassar sexually assaulted a patient, allowing further abuses by the disgraced former Olympic gymnastics physician to occur, according to criminal charges unsealed in Michigan Tuesday morning.

.

William Strampel, 70, who led Michigan States medical school from 2002 until late last year, was arrested Monday evening and taken to jail on four charges one felony and three misdemeanors stemming from the Michigan Attorney Generals Offices ongoing investigation of the role others at the school may have played in crimes committed by Nassar, the former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics physician accused by more than 250 girls and women of sexual abuse.

.

Tuesdays criminal charges invited more criticism from Nassars victims and their attorneys of Michigan States board of trustees, who resisted calls for nearly a year to commission an independent investigation of how the serial pedophile accused of abusing children as far back as the mid-1990s was able to escape detection for so long. Until relenting to demands for an inquiry in January, Michigan State board members publicly maintained university officials, including Strampel, didnt deserve blame for Nassars crimes.

A Teen's Muscle Soreness Turned Out to Be This Life-Threatening Condition

A Texas teen who felt extremely sore after a hard gym workout turned out to have a rare and potentially life-threatening condition called rhabdomyolysis. But how do you tell the difference between run-of-the-mill soreness and rhabdomyolysis?

.

The teen, Jared Shamburger, had recently signed up for a gym membership with his family, according to local news outlet KTRK. His older brother and dad had been weightlifting for years, and Shamburger wanted to "catch up" with them. "I have to go hard fast," Shamburger, who is 17, told KTRK.

.

But after a 90-minute weightlifting session, Shamburger said he felt particularly sore. "Everything hurt. It hurt to the touch. It was swollen," he said.

.

When the teen's soreness and swelling didn't go away, his mom, Judy Shamburger, looked up his symptoms online, and realized her son might have rhabdomyolysis. Her suspicion was right. The teen was diagnosed with the condition, sometimes referred to as "rhabdo," and hospitalized for five days, KTRK reported.

Shamburger is expected to make a full recovery, KTRK reported.

Rhabdomyolysis - Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhabdomyolysis

Rhabdomyolysis is a condition in which damaged skeletal muscle breaks down rapidly.[3] Symptoms may include muscle pains, weakness, vomiting, and confusion.[3][4] There may be tea-colored urine or an irregular heartbeat.[3] Some of the muscle breakdown products, such as the protein myoglobin, are harmful to the kidneys and may lead to kidney failure.[3]

The muscle damage is most often the result of a crush injury, strenuous exercise, medications, or drug abuse.[3] Other causes include infections, electrical injury, heat stroke, prolonged immobilization, lack of blood flow to a limb, or snake bites.[3] Some people have inherited muscle conditions that increase the risk of rhabdomyolysis.[3] The diagnosis is supported by a urine test strip which is positive for "blood" but the urine contains no red blood cells when examined with a microscope.[3] Blood tests show a creatine kinase greater than 1,000 U/L, with severe disease being above 5,000 U/L.[5]

The mainstay of treatment is large quantities of intravenous fluids.[3] Other treatments may include dialysis or hemofiltration in more severe cases.[4][6] Once urine output is established sodium bicarbonate and mannitol are commonly used but they are poorly supported by the evidence.[3][4] Outcomes are generally good if treated early.[3] Complications may include high blood potassium, low blood calcium, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and compartment syndrome.[3]

Rhabdomyolysis occurs in about 26,000 people a year in the United States.[3] While the condition has been commented on throughout history, the first modern description was following an earthquake in 1908.[7] Important discoveries as to its mechanism were made during the Blitz of London in 1941.[7] It is a significant problem for those injured in earthquakes and relief efforts for such disasters often include medical teams equipped to treat survivors with rhabdomyolysis.[7]

Rhabdomyolysis
Email this page to a friend Print Facebook Twitter Google+

Rhabdomyolysis is the breakdown of muscle tissue that leads to the release of muscle fiber contents into the blood. These substances are harmful to the kidney and often cause kidney damage.
Causes

When muscle is damaged, a protein called myoglobin is released into the bloodstream. It is then filtered out of the body by the kidneys. Myoglobin breaks down into substances that can damage kidney cells.

Rhabdomyolysis may be caused by injury or any other condition that damages skeletal muscle.

Problems that may lead to this disease include:

Trauma or crush injuries
Use of drugs such as cocaine, amphetamines, statins, heroin, or PCP
Genetic muscle diseases
Extremes of body temperature
Ischemia or death of muscle tissue
Low phosphate levels
Seizures or muscle tremors
Severe exertion, such as marathon running or calisthenics
Lengthy surgical procedures
Severe dehydration

A.D.A.M Quality Logo

Symptoms

Symptoms may include:

Dark, red, or cola-colored urine
Decreased urine output
General weakness
Muscle stiffness or aching (myalgia)
Muscle tenderness
Weakness of the affected muscles

Other symptoms that may occur with this disease:

Fatigue
Joint pain
Seizures
Weight gain (unintentional)

Exams and Tests

A physical exam will show tender or damaged skeletal muscles.

The following tests may be done:

Creatine kinase (CK) level
Serum calcium
Serum myoglobin
Serum potassium
Urinalysis
Urine myoglobin test

This disease may also affect the results of the following tests:

CK isoenzymes
Serum creatinine
Urine creatinine

Treatment

You will need to get fluids containing bicarbonate to help prevent kidney damage. You may need to get fluids through a vein (IV). Some people may need kidney dialysis.

Your health care provider may prescribe medicines including diuretics and bicarbonate (if there is enough urine output).

Hyperkalemia and low blood calcium levels (hypocalcemia) should be treated right away. Kidney failure should also be treated.
Outlook (Prognosis)

The outcome depends on the amount of kidney damage. Acute kidney failure occurs in many people. Getting treated soon after rhabdomyolysis will reduce the risk of permanent kidney damage.

People with milder cases may return to their normal activities within a few weeks to a month. However, some people continue to have problems with fatigue and muscle pain.
Possible Complications

Complications may include:

Acute tubular necrosis
Acute renal failure
Harmful chemical imbalances in the blood
Shock (low blood pressure)

When to Contact a Medical Professional

Call your provider if you have symptoms of rhabdomyolysis.
Prevention

Rhabdomyolysis can be avoided by:

Drinking plenty of fluids after strenuous exercise.
Removing extra clothes and immersing the body in cold water in case of heat stroke.

Rhabdomyolysis

Rhabdomyolysis is a condition in which damaged skeletal muscle tissue breaks down rapidly. Breakdown products of damaged muscle cells are released into the bloodstream. Some of these, such as the protein myoglobin, are harmful to the kidneys and may lead to kidney failure.

PubMed Health Glossary

About Rhabdomyolysis

Rhabdomyolysis is an extremely rare but serious side effect where muscle tissue gradually breaks down in certain muscles. This can lead to permanent paralysis, and the breakdown products can cause serious kidney damage.

In studies, rhabdomyolysis was found to occur in 1 out of 10,000 people who took statins for longer periods of time.

Signs of this side effect include muscle ache and dark-colored urine, so it is important to seek medical advice if you have these symptoms. Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG)

Is continuous renal replacement therapy beneficial for people with rhabdomyolysis?

Rhabdomyolysis is a potentially life-threatening condition where damaged muscle tissue breaks down quickly, and products of damaged muscle cells are released into the bloodstream. Of these products, a protein called myoglobin is harmful to kidney health and can lead to acute kidney injury. There is some evidence to suggest that continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) may provide benefits for people with rhabdomyolysis.

Efficacy of statins for primary prevention in people at low cardiovascular risk: a meta-analysis

The review concluded that both low- and high-potency statins were efficacious in preventing death and cardiovascular-related morbidity in people at low risk of cardiovascular events, although the number needed to treat to prevent one adverse outcome was relatively high for any statin. The authors' conclusions reflect the evidence available and appear likely to be reliable.

Adverse events associated with individual statin treatments for cardiovascular disease: an indirect comparison meta-analysis

The use of statin therapy for cardiovascular disease was associated with a relatively low risk of adverse events. High risk of bias within the studies, high clinical and methodological heterogeneity between the studies, and a discrepancy between the initial outcomes stated and those actually reported suggest that the authors' conclusions and recommendations may not be reliable.

Aerobic training for McArdle disease

McArdle disease is a rare disease of muscle metabolism. Affected people cannot use a starch-like substance called glycogen which is stored in muscle and used for energy at the beginning of activity and during strenuous exercise. The effects of the condition are fatigue and cramping within a few minutes of starting an activity, which can potentially lead to acute muscle damage. After about seven or eight minutes of exercise the muscle can start to use alternative sources of energy from fats and sugars supplied from the liver and so the symptoms ease. This phenomenon is called the 'second wind'. In healthy people, aerobic training is known to improve the ability of muscle to burn fats for energy during exercise. In theory then, aerobic training could be beneficial to people with McArdle disease, as their muscles might be trained to use fats earlier and more efficiently during exercise. The purpose of this review was to identify any randomised controlled trials of aerobic training and assess its effects in people with McArdle disease. There were no randomised controlled trials of aerobic training in people with McArdle disease. There were, however, three small uncontrolled studies (the largest included nine participants). The studies showed that it is possible for people with McArdle disease to undergo exercise training and there were no harmful effects. Whether or not training is beneficial for people with McArdle disease needs further investigation, with randomised controlled trials including larger numbers of people with the condition.

Statins for acute ischemic stroke

Stroke is a major public health problem than can cause death and severe disability. A limited number of drugs are available for treating patients with stroke. Statins, a group of drugs commonly used to reduce cholesterol levels, are known to be safe and effective when given to patients with an acute heart attack. Therefore, they may also be beneficial in patients with acute stroke. We identified eight relevant trials of statins in acute stroke involving 625 participants. Unfortunately, insufficient information was available to establish whether statins are safe and beneficial for patients with acute ischemic stroke

Drug Class Review: HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors (Statins) and Fixed-dose Combination Products Containing a Statin: Final Report Update 5 [Internet]

In the United States, coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease account for nearly 40% of all deaths each year. Coronary heart disease continues to be the leading cause of mortality and a significant cause of morbidity among North Americans. In 2006, coronary heart disease claimed 607 000 lives, translating into about 1 out of every 5 deaths in the United States. High levels of cholesterol, or hypercholesterolemia, are an important risk factor for coronary heart disease. The 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors, also known as statins, are the most effective class of drugs for lowering serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations. They are first-line agents for patients who require drug therapy to reduce serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations. The purpose of this review is to compare the benefits and harms of different statins in adults and children with hypercholesterolemia.

The harmful health effects of recreational ecstasy: a systematic review of observational evidence

Street drugs known as ecstasy have been sold for about 20 years in the UK. The active substance that such tablets contain or purport to contain is 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA). Shortly after consumption, MDMA releases chemicals in the brain that tend to bring about a sense of euphoria, exhilaration and increased intimacy with others. It is thought to be the third most commonly used illegal drug in the UK after cannabis and cocaine, with estimates suggesting that between 500,000 and 2 million tablets are consumed each week. Most people who take ecstasy also use other legal and illegal drugs, sometimes at the same time. Ecstasy is commonly taken in nightclubs and at parties and is very often associated with extended sessions of dancing.

Lipid Screening in Childhood and Adolescence for Detection of Familial Hypercholesterolemia: A Systematic Evidence Review for the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force [Internet]

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an inherited disorder of lipoprotein metabolism characterized by highly elevated total cholesterol (TC) concentrations early in life, independent of environmental influences. Around 1 in 200 to 1 in 500 persons in North America and Europe are estimated to have heterozygous FH. When untreated, FH is associated with a high incidence of premature clinical atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

Spinal Injury: Assessment and Initial Management

The scope of this guideline is the assessment, imaging and early management of spinal injury and does not address rehabilitation. It is important to recognise that early management is intrinsically connected to rehabilitation and some later complications may be avoided with changes in early care. Early and ongoing collaborative multidisciplinary care across a trauma network is vital in ensuring that the patient with a spinal injury receives the best possible care.

Major Trauma: Assessment and Initial Management

This guideline provides guidance on the assessment and management of major trauma, including resuscitation following major blood loss associated with trauma. For the purposes of this guideline, major trauma is defined as an injury or a combination of injuries that are life-threatening and could be life changing because it may result in long-term disability. This guideline covers both the pre-hospital and immediate hospital care of major trauma patients but does not include any management after definitive lifesaving intervention. It has been developed for health practitioners and professionals, patients and carers and commissioners of health services.

Topotecan, pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride, paclitaxel, trabectedin and gemcitabine for advanced recurrent or refractory ovarian cancer: a systematic review and economic evaluation

The study was unable to compare the clinical and cost-effectiveness of platinum-based therapies with non-platinum-based therapies for platinum sensitive ovarian cancer. In people with platinum-sensitive disease, paclitaxel plus platinum could be considered cost-effective compared with platinum therapies alone at a threshold of 30,000 per additional quality-adjusted life-year. In people with disease which is resistant or refractory to platinum it is unlikely that topotecan would be considered cost-effective compared with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride.

Alcohol Use Disorders: Diagnosis and Clinical Management of Alcohol-Related Physical Complications [Internet]

Alcohol is the most widely used psychotropic drug in the industrialised world; it has been used for thousands of years as a social lubricant and anxiolytic. In the UK, it is estimated that 24% of adult men and 13% of adult women drink in a hazardous or harmful way. Levels of hazardous and harmful drinking are lowest in the central and eastern regions of England (2124% of men and 1014% of women). They are highest in the north (2628% of men, 1618% of women). Hazardous and harmful drinking are commonly encountered amongst hospital attendees; 12% of emergency department attendances are directly related to alcohol whilst 20% of patients admitted to hospital for illnesses unrelated to alcohol are drinking at potentially hazardous levels. Continued hazardous and harmful drinking can result in dependence and tolerance with the consequence that an abrupt reduction in intake might result in development of a withdrawal syndrome. In addition, persistent drinking at hazardous and harmful levels can also result in damage to almost every organ or system of the body. Alcohol-attributable conditions include liver damage, pancreatitis and the Wernickes encephalopathy. Key areas in the investigation and management of these conditions are covered in this guideline.

Reslizumab (Cinqair) [Internet]

Asthma is a common chronic respiratory disorder characterized by reversible airway obstruction, pulmonary inflammation, airway hyper-responsiveness, and airway remodelling., Patients with asthma typically present with paroxysmal or persistent symptoms of wheezing, dyspnea, chest tightness, sputum production, and coughing that are associated with airflow limitation and airway hyper-responsiveness to endogenous and exogenous stimuli (e.g., exercise; viral respiratory infections; or exposure to certain allergens, irritants, or gases). Severe eosinophilic asthma is an asthma phenotype characterized by the presence of eosinophils in the airways and sputum, despite compliance with conventional asthma therapy. Severe asthma can have a profound effect on patients day-to-day lives, such as limiting physical activity, reducing performance at work or school, restricting social interactions, and leading to stigma. It may also necessitate frequent physician and emergency room visits.

Meta-analysis of safety of the coadministration of statin with fenofibrate in patients with combined hyperlipidemia

Addition of fenofibrate to statin therapy might represent a viable treatment option for patients whose high risk for coronary heart disease is not controlled by a statin alone. However, safety of coadministration of statin with fenofibrate has been a great concern. The present study tested the safety of coadministration of statin with fenofibrate. We systematically searched the literature to identify randomized controlled trials examining safety of coadministration of statin with fenofibrate. A meta-analysis was performed to estimate safety of coadministration of statin with fenofibrate using fixed-effects models. There were 1,628 subjects in the identified 6 studies. Discontinuation attributed to any adverse events (4.5% vs 3.1%, p = 0.20), any adverse events (42% vs 41%, p = 0.82), adverse events related to study drug (10.9% vs 11.0%, p = 0.95), and serious adverse events (2.0% vs 1.5%, p = 0.71) were not significantly different in the 2 arms. Incidence of alanine aminotransferase and/or aspartate aminotransferase =3 times upper limit of normal in the combination therapy arm was significantly higher than in the statin monotherapy arm (3.1% vs 0.2%, p = 0.0009). In the 6 trials with 1,628 subjects no case of myopathy or rhabdomyolysis was reported. In conclusion, statin-fenofibrate combination therapy was tolerated as well as statin monotherapy. Physicians should consider statin-fenofibrate combination therapy to treat patients with mixed dyslipidemia.

The clinical and cost-effectiveness of intensive versus standard lipid lowering with statins in the prevention of cardiovascular events amongst patients with acute coronary syndromes: a systematic review

Early intensive lipid lowering with high-dose/potency statins for high risk acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients significantly reduced the risk of death or major cardiovascular event in comparison with standard lipid lowering regimens. The authors' conclusion is reasonable, but perhaps should be tempered as it was primarily based on one large trial and generalisability beyond that intervention might be premature.

Is continuous renal replacement therapy beneficial for people with rhabdomyolysis?

Rhabdomyolysis is a potentially life-threatening condition where damaged muscle tissue breaks down quickly, and products of damaged muscle cells are released into the bloodstream. Of these products, a protein called myoglobin is harmful to kidney health and can lead to acute kidney injury. There is some evidence to suggest that continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) may provide benefits for people with rhabdomyolysis.

When is it worth taking statins to lower high cholesterol?

High cholesterol levels could mean an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Certain medications called statins lower the amount of cholesterol in the blood. They can prevent related medical conditions and increase life expectancy. Whether or not it's worth taking them will depend on what other risk factors you have, though. If the risk of cardiovascular disease can't be reduced enough through general measures, treatment with medication can be considered. Whether treatment with medication is a good idea will mostly depend on individual risk factors and how you yourself view the pros and cons of the treatment. The main factor is whether you have already had cardiovascular disease, such as coronary artery disease. That may greatly increase the risk of a heart attack or stroke. This risk can be reduced using medication. When deciding whether or not to have a certain treatment, it can help to find out about the advantages and disadvantages of the treatment. Various groups of drugs can be used for the treatment of high cholesterol. But only one group of drugs, known as statins, has been well studied in people who have never had a heart attack, stroke or other type of cardiovascular disease. Many different statins have been approved in Germany, including atorvastatin, fluvastatin, lovastatin, pitavastatin, pravastatin, rosuvastatin and simvastatin.

Medication for the long-term treatment of coronary artery disease

The long-term treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD) mainly involves taking medication. Various medications can relieve the symptoms and lower the risk of complications. In order to prevent the development of related medical conditions, all people who have coronary artery disease (CAD) are advised to take two types of medication: Antiplatelets to prevent blood clots, and statins to protect the blood vessels. Beta blockers are sometimes taken too, to reduce the heart's workload, particularly in people who have heart failure or high blood pressure. Good-quality studies have proven that these medications can lower the risk of complications such as heart attacks or strokes. People who have certain other medical conditions too may take other medications such as ACE inhibitors. But even the very best treatment with medications will offer only limited protection from heart disease. All medications can have side effects. Yet it is often possible to avoid them by adjusting the dose or by choosing a different medication in the same group of drugs. The side effects often go away after a while too, once the body has got used to the medication. The risk of side effects may increase when two or more medications are taken together, because they may interact. It is therefore important to tell your doctor what medication you are already taking. Generally speaking, the more risk factors someone has, the more likely it is that he or she will benefit from medication. The important thing is to continue to take your medication and to take it regularly its protective effect lasts only as long as it is taken.

Aerobic training for McArdle disease

McArdle disease is a rare disease of muscle metabolism. Affected people cannot use a starch-like substance called glycogen which is stored in muscle and used for energy at the beginning of activity and during strenuous exercise. The effects of the condition are fatigue and cramping within a few minutes of starting an activity, which can potentially lead to acute muscle damage. After about seven or eight minutes of exercise the muscle can start to use alternative sources of energy from fats and sugars supplied from the liver and so the symptoms ease. This phenomenon is called the 'second wind'. In healthy people, aerobic training is known to improve the ability of muscle to burn fats for energy during exercise. In theory then, aerobic training could be beneficial to people with McArdle disease, as their muscles might be trained to use fats earlier and more efficiently during exercise. The purpose of this review was to identify any randomised controlled trials of aerobic training and assess its effects in people with McArdle disease. There were no randomised controlled trials of aerobic training in people with McArdle disease. There were, however, three small uncontrolled studies (the largest included nine participants). The studies showed that it is possible for people with McArdle disease to undergo exercise training and there were no harmful effects. Whether or not training is beneficial for people with McArdle disease needs further investigation, with randomised controlled trials including larger numbers of people with the condition.

Statins for acute ischemic stroke

Stroke is a major public health problem than can cause death and severe disability. A limited number of drugs are available for treating patients with stroke. Statins, a group of drugs commonly used to reduce cholesterol levels, are known to be safe and effective when given to patients with an acute heart attack. Therefore, they may also be beneficial in patients with acute stroke. We identified eight relevant trials of statins in acute stroke involving 625 participants. Unfortunately, insufficient information was available to establish whether statins are safe and beneficial for patients with acute ischemic stroke

In most cases, the history reflects the inciting cause (though in some, it is nonspecific and thus diagnostically unreliable). Possible causes include the following:

Alcohol use and resultant unresponsiveness

Illicit drug use

Use of prescribed medications

Heatstroke

Infection

Trauma

Metabolic disorders

Inflammatory myopathies

Initial physical findings may be nonspecific. The following may be noted:

Muscular pain and tenderness

Decreased muscle strength

Soft tissue swelling

Skin changes consistent with pressure necrosis

Hyperthermia, hypothermia, and electrical injuries

Crush injuries or deformities in long bones

Michigan State University said May 16 it had reached a $500 million settlement with more than 300 women and girls who alleged Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor, sexually abused them.

.

The university will pay out $425 million, and set aside another $75 million for survivors who may come forward in the future. The payout far exceeds the $109 million Penn State paid to its more than 30 victims in the case of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted of molesting young boys in 2012.

.

The settlement should resolve the scores of lawsuits against MSU, and it represents the harshest consequences yet for a university that has grappled with a slow burning crisis for months. MSU president Lou Anna Simon resigned in January, hours after Nassars sentencing. William Strampel, the former dean of MSUs College of Osteopathic Medicine and Nassars former boss, was charged with crimes related to sexual misconduct and abuse of power. The MSU athletic director also retired.

.

The Department of Education has opened a formal investigation into the university. So has the NCAA. Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette embarked on a full review of the Nassar case and the failures of MSU, appointing a special prosecutor to lead the probe.

.

Families and onlookers have demanded that the university, as well as USA Gymnastics, reckon with its role in the scandal and explain how a doctor accused of molesting about 300 women and girls did not face real consequences for decades.

.

That silence enabled Nassar to become perhaps the worst known sexual predator in American sports history.

.

At Nassars sentencing hearing, 15-year-old Emma Ann Miller told the court Nassar had molested her in August 2016 at MSU. The university suspended him about a week after, she said, and she offered a chilling thought: Im possibly the last child he will ever assault.

.

Her mother, Miller added, was still getting bills from MSU sports medicine bills, she said, for appointments where I was sexually assaulted.

.
