Home Women Women oi-Prerna Aditi By Prerna Aditi on December 6, 2019 It's high time when as a society, we need to ensure the safety of women. The safety shouldn't be only in physical form but also in the context of cyber security. For that reason, cyber crimes are increasing at an alarming rate. There is no denying that the internet has eased our lives in many ways. From connecting to distant loved ones to buying something, one can always take the help of the internet. But every day hundreds of innocent and not-so-tech-savvy people, especially women become prey to cybercrimes. It is needless to mention that any news, photos, videos, and audio can spread over the internet like a fire. Also, one can not always delete what's on the internet. For that reason, even if you have deleted a file, someone might re-upload it and hence, it may get circulated once again. Also, somebody can get access to your personal details and misuse it. In order to alert women and girls and help … [Read more...] about 13 Types Of Cyber Crimes Women Need To Stay Careful About

INTRODUCTION Marijuana. Addictive or no? That question has been batted back and forth for decades. While many, especially regular users, say, "Absolutely not!" others are convinced that the answer is a resounding "Yes!" So which is it? Marijuana is a political hot button, thus much research has concentrated on the addictive properties of this plant. The vast majority of those who use marijuana do so occasionally and exhibit no addictive symptoms — no increased tolerance, no cravings and no withdrawal. In other words, they can take it or leave it. According to NIDA, marijuana is the most commonly abused illicit drug in the U.S. Why? It’s accessible, affordable, and not considered harmful. In addition, more and more state legislatures are legalizing medicinal marijuana. Presently, 16 states and DC have legalized medical marijuana, and 12 states have pending legislation. Fourteen states have decriminalized marijuana, and cities and counties within certain states have followed … [Read more...] about Is Marijuana Addictive?
Predictability can be a tricky thing. We all look for predictability in our lives to help us feel safe. And we all look for predictability to make us feel adequate. If we know what to expect then we feel like we can make sense of the world. Humans look for patterns in our environments. This helps us feel that there is predictability because we can group things together in ways that make sense—or at least in ways that “seem” to make sense. Just because we seem to see a pattern in how things relate does not mean that they “actually” group together in any sort of meaningful way. Having a need for predictability is at the very heart of our human development. Humans and animals share this need. Animals also look for predictability in their environments. Animals’ survival in often hostile environments depends on them being able to find patterns for predicting what will happen. This allows them to prepare for what they need to do and how … [Read more...] about Filtering Out the Irrelevant Garbage
Of all of the threats to a committed relationship I have treated in four decades of working with couples, the most difficult to heal is infidelity. When a trusted partner in a committed relationship betrays the sacred trust of the other, the relationship will undergo severe instability. The partner who has been betrayed is emotionally tortured and humiliated when knowledge of the infidelity emerges. They are clearly in trauma and experience the same array of symptoms that professionals now describe as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Similar to any others who have suffered threats to their physical or emotional well-being and security, they are disoriented and confused by what has happened. Relationship partners of both genders experience similar of the classical symptoms of PTSD: Repeated intrusive thoughts. Unstable emotional regulation. Out of body experiences. Alternating between feeling numb and striking out in retaliation. Inability to stop scanning for any new data that might … [Read more...] about How Infidelity Causes Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
This summer the Department of Veterans Affairs released its second VA National Suicide Data Report. This report, again representing a joint effort between the VA, analysts, and researchers, assesses suicide data from 2005 to 2015. Its predecessor, released in 2012, gave rise to the widely held belief that 22 veterans a day die by suicide. This report adjusts that figure by two, establishing a number closer to 20 a day--a number which has reportedly remained constant from 2008-2015. Moreover, the report states that this number also includes active duty service members, National Guard, and Reservists. This report farther breaks down that number into those using VA-provided care (six per day), Veterans not utilizing VA services (11 a day), and those currently on active duty, National Guard, and/or in the Reserves (four a day). Perhaps, most importantly, it contains information on ethnicity, era of service, and age group comparisons. The result is a … [Read more...] about The VA Releases Second National Suicide Data Report
