"Physicians for Human Rights" "Physicians for Human Rights" By far, the most numerous casualties (killed or injured) in warfare are civilian bystanders. In the Iraq war, for example, for every U.S. military casualty, there are an estimated ten civilians. And this does not take into account the psychological trauma of organized violence or other consequences of war from economic privation to environmental wreckage. We explore efforts to give voice to these civilians and help them heal their broken lives. Also heard are Jennifer Leaning, MD (Harvard School of Public Health) and Charles Clements, MD (Unitarian Universalist Service Committee) who have treated civilian victims in conflict zones and advocated on their behalf.

Attitudinal Healing Attitudinal Healing While making rounds on a pediatric oncology ward, Dr. Jerry Jampolsky overheard an 8 year-old boy ask his doctor "What is it like to die?". The doctor ignored the question and changed the subject. Jerry wrote:

"I think the physician was fearful of addressing the question. When I investigated this further, I discovered that changing the subject was not an uncommon response to these questions. I discovered that children usually look for someone they can trust who will give them honest replies to these questions. On this particular ward, this turned out to be the cleaning woman. The kids seemed to know they would get honest, direct answers from her. I began to wonder generally where kids could go to talk about such serious things as death and found that there was no safe place where they could talk.

Jerry founded The Center to create a safe place where kids with cancer could talk. With the help of several volunteers, Jerry started the first support group at the Center. Even though Jerry is a psychiatrist, in group everyone was regarded as equal -- kids, volunteers and Jerry.

Brief history of napalm's development Brief history of napalm's development Napalm is a mixture of a thickening/gelling agent and petroleum or a similar fuel for use in an incendiary device. It was initially used against buildings, and later was used primarily as an anti- personnel weapon that sticks to skin and causes severe burns when on fire. Napalm was developed in 1943, in a secret laboratory at Harvard University in Massachusetts, by a team led by chemist Louis Fieser.[1] Its first recorded use was in the European theatre of war; it was used extensively in incendiary attacks on Japanese cities.

Cathrine Sneed Cathrine Sneed In 1982, Cathrine Sneed began the Horticulture Program for prisoners in the San Francisco County Jail. Early in the jail's history, which was built in 1934, the facility grew its own food.

Cathrine and the prisoners worked to transform the abandoned buildings and fields into a farm that would grow organic vegetables for homeless shelters and soup kitchens -- a job training program that used horticulture as a metaphor for personal growth, while benefiting poor communities. Prisoners responded favorably to the program; however, upon release, they faced many challenges. Many of the participants in the Horticulture Program continued to return to jail.

Taking the lessons from that program, Cathrine and San Francisco Sheriff Michael Hennessey worked to create a program that would affect the high rates of recidivism and continue the work of the Horticulture program in communities in San Francisco. The Garden Project began in 1992.

Economic Worries Tax Out Americans as April 15 nears Economic Worries Tax Out Americans as April 15 nears

Economic Worries Tax Out Americans as April 15 nears

With cash-strapped Americans already worried about the effects of an economic downturn, the April 15 deadline to file federal income taxes may seem overwhelming or frightening, especially for those who fear that they will owe the government money.

The American Psychological Association (APA) cautions that while this time of year may seem excessively difficult, relying on harmful behaviors to alleviate stress may contribute to physical and emotional health problems in the future.

"The nation's troubled economy is causing a strain not only on wallets but also on how stressed we feel," said Dr. Stephanie Smith, a Colorado psychologist. "Many of us bury our heads in the sand because our finances are so overwhelming. This can just make the problem--and ultimately our anxiety about the problem--worse. Start small and start somewhere. Think of tax-filing time as an opportunity to evaluate your financial situation and money habits and figure out ways to change."

Money is a leading concern for most Americans. According to APA's 2008 Stress in America poll, more than 80 percent of Americans say money and the economy are two significant stressors in their lives. And with the nation in a recession, more Americans may feel panicky about their future, leading to an increase in stress about their finances and job.

The survey also reveals that many Americans choose unhealthy ways to cope with their stress. Nearly 50 percent say they overeat or eat unhealthy foods during stressful times.

"It's tempting to turn to bad habits, but stress and health are so strongly linked that it's important for people to take care of themselves," said Dr. Nancy Molitor, a Chicago-area psychologist. "Engaging in unhealthy behaviors usually makes things worse and then distracts you from making the necessary changes in your financial situation that could ultimately make life better."

Equality Trust Equality Trust

The Equality Trust was founded in 2009 by Bill Kerry, Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett.

The idea for the Trust was developed in 2007, after Richard and Kate secured a publishing deal for The Spirit Level: Why more equal societies almost always do better and Bill recognised the potential for a campaign based on their evidence. They established an Advisory Group to help them shape the organisation and worked with the Sheila McKechnie Foundation  to develop their vision and strategy.

Escape Fire Escape Fire In the summer of 2009, we sat down with Donna Karan to discuss our broken healthcare system. After losing her husband to cancer, she was appalled by the state of American medicine and founded the Urban Zen foundation. We were inspired by Donna's compassion for patients and passion for change. We then spent six months doing our own research on healthcare to figure out whether it was possible to take on such a huge topic. As we progressed, we kept hearing from a wide range of sources that we had a disease-care system, not a healthcare system, a system designed to reward quantity over quality, high-tech over high-touch. How did this perverse system come to be? How could we find our way out of this mess? As we started filming, we began finding characters/storylines that helped answer these questions, and we grew more and more convinced that there was an important film to be made.
