Worn out, cancerous lungs from prolonged tobacco inhalation Esophgeal Cancer - Tobbacco use from ciggerettes to smokeless tobbacco are all major contributors to most esophgeal cancer. - About 12,300 of new cases of esophgeal cancer resulted into 12,100 deaths tobacco abuse -A decrease in smoking ciggerettes and smokeless tabacco could prevent an estimated 8000 deaths per year, as well as 30, 000 diagnosed paitents due to oral cancer alone in Canada.

Transcript: By: Kaleb Dye Jones developed a technique known as desensitization, used to cure phobias. A patient may be desensitized through the repeated introduction of a series of stimuli that approximate the phobia. Her study of the removal a fear of rabbits through conditioning, which she conducted at the Institute of Educational Research, Columbia University Teachers’ College on a three-year-old named Peter, is her most often cited work. Jones treated Peter’s fear of a white rabbit by “direct conditioning,” in which a pleasant stimulus (food) was associated with the rabbit. As the rabbit was gradually brought closer to him in the presence of his favorite food, Peter grew more tolerant, and was able to touch it without fear. PURPLE CIRCLE THE INTERNETS Psychologists and their contributions Galton's contributions to Psychology Sir Francis Galton Jones' contributions SOURCES!!!!! February 16th 1822 – January 17th 1911), cousin of Douglas Strutt Galton, and Charles Darwin, was an English Victorian polymath: anthropologist, eugenicist, tropical explorer, geographer, inventor, meteorologist, proto-geneticist, psychometrician, and statistician. He was knighted in 1909. Galton was a very bright child growing up, learning to read at the age of two and a half. A little before he was 4 years old, he had already written his first letter; learned how to do multiplication and tell time when an average child would have learned to do all that after the age of 7. Mary Cover Jones PURPLE CIRCLE Mary Cover Jones (September 1, 1897 – July 22, 1987) was born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Mary Cover Jones studied psychology at Vassar College, from which she graduated in 1919, after which she went on to work with noted behaviorist John B. Watson during the 1920s. As an investigator of the human mind, he founded psychometrics (the science of measuring mental faculties) and differential psychology and the lexical hypothesis of personality. He devised a method for classifying fingerprints that proved useful in forensic science. He also conducted research on the power of prayer, concluding it had none by its null effects on the longevity of those prayed for.(HAHA!!!)
Transcript: Why is this ban supported? Why is this ban criticized? What is the status of the ban today? Questions? Refers to FDA's current policy on blood donations from men who have had sex with other men (MSM) at any time since 1977. This policy was enacted in 1983 when the risk of AIDS from transfusion was first recognized. Incredibly advanced since 1983 - only fails 1 out of every 1 million HIV infected donors. Problem: Window period - the time between when someone is infected and when blood test can detect HIV in the blood. Still completely able to transmit the disease during this time Can last anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months Blood could be accidentally given to a patient in error before tests are done. As of right now, the risk of getting HIV from a transfusion is virtually eliminated The Red Cross needs approximately 80,000 units of blood per day - currently has under 40,000 units Unfortunately, that number is dropping. Eligible MSMs could equal over 2 million more donors - a population that could give the entire nation a month's supply by itself. "Yes, this made sense - in the 1980s." Outdated and Discriminatory By Emily Werns Not enough blood as it is However, as of right now, the ban on gay blood is still in place and there are no concrete plans to change it. What is the ban on gay blood? Now, tests are much more sensitive and accurate, able to detect HIV virtually 100% of the time Policy equate sexual identity with sexual practice - assumes all MSM are at an equally high risk for HIV/AIDS Holds straight people to a much lower standard and reinforces the opinion that straight people are better or superior The Ban on Gay Blood Today: - MSM since 1996 have an HIV prevalence 60x higher than the general population - They are the largest single group of potential donors that are found to be HIV positive What about blood testing? In a nutshell: MSM as a group are at an increased risk for HIV/AIDS. •Department of Health and Human Services began a pilot study in early 2012 that would assess alternative policies that would allow some MSM to donate, however, it has not come back yet •Resolutions were passed by NYC Council and DC City Council calling on the FDA to eliminate the ban, but both were ignored. These are becoming more and more frequent. •Now, ban is getting more attention because of the blood shortage and because gay rights is currently a hot-button topic.
Transcript: Homosexuality : Disease or Preference? Although psychologists now recognize that homosexuality can be found in happy, healthy individuals, the nature vs. nurture debate rages on. Homosexual activity has been observed in over 100 different species. Studies have shown the gay man's brain is more similar to the brain of a straight female. http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1815538,00.html Fraternal and identical twins both have higher than normal chance of both identifying as gay RRR I made a Prezi about the evidence that may point to homosexuality being biologically based for PART points. I was raised in a typical Southern Baptist home and taught in Christian school that homosexuality was a choice and a sin. Why would God create people who went against his laws? I don't know the answer to that question, but the evidence does point to fundamental differences at root, not "rebelliousness," or inherent evil. I thought it was a fun program, but I ran out of time so it wasn't as totally awesome as it could be. I do love the "Boys Beware" video. I watched it a few years ago with one of my friends (who is gay) and we coudn't believe what we were seeing was really shown in schools once upon a time. But it helps keep the older generation in perspective. It's hard to shake what we're taught. Gay in the USA Between 1952 and 1973, Homosexuality was classified as a mental disorder by the APA

Transcript: Gay in public Every June New York holds its annual pride parade in which 1000s of all kinds of people show up and support equality! LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and along with heterosexual they describe people's sexual orientation or gender identity. Gay men and women would go to bars to be in a place where they could be themselves. They had to be careful though and not act too gay or else the cops would find you and exploit you the newspaper and your employers and you'd lose your job. $1.25 Monday, February 17, 1955/2014 Don't Ask Don't Tell?! Gay Marriage Lavender Scare Being gay in the army wasn't a thing It refers to the fear and persecution of homosexuals in the 1950s in the United States, which paralleled the anti-communist campaign known as McCarthyism. gay men and lesbians were considered susceptible to blackmail, meaning a huge security risk. U.S. government officials assumed that communists would blackmail homosexual employees of the federal government who would provide them classified information rather than risk exposure. McCarthy and Cohn were responsible for firing a lot of the gay men from government employment. Now people can freely go to bars and not have to worry about acting too gay in public. The 1950's were viewed as a decade of prosperity for many Americans. For lesbians and gay men it was both a time of great fear and immeasurable courage. Being gay was thought to be a mental illness. Homosexuals sought out to gay bars, but there were still consequences. Now, we have grown so much from the hate. Gay marriage is now legal in 19 states. We have open organizations and we can't discriminate gays in the work place. Women had to wear make up and apply beauty marks to make them appear more feminine. They were only to wear opposite gender clothing after hours at a gay bar you'd get kicked out if you were thought to have homosexual tendencies. Acceptance in the 21st century 19 states are for marriage equality! Vol XCIII, No. 311 Psst! Gays are allowed into military! New Jersey says YES to same sex marriage! GAY, GAY and more GAY! The policy prohibited military personnel from discriminating against or harassing closeted homosexual or bisexual service members, who were openly gay, lesbian, or bisexual persons from military service. It started under Clinton and ended under Obama in 2011. Now we are equal.
