Extractions: The abundance of information now available to us from sources such as newspapers, journals, and the Internet make it impossible for us to keep up. As educators there is little extra time beyond our jobs to read current events, maintain active participation in our professional associations, and find the new research or current topics in our field of either counseling or education (or both). As educators our time is important. As our busy schedules grow longer and our personal time narrows, we have to find time to maintain our professional-knowledge base. Searching the Internet can be long and time consuming so the websites we bookmark are critical to providing us information helping us succeed with everyday and long-term goals. What is ERIC?

Extractions: A Guide for Teenagers (posted by Hopkins Technology) U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Service Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration As a teenager, you know that these school years can be complicated and demanding. Deep down, you are not quite sure of who you are, what you want to be, or whether the choices you make from day to day are the best decisions. Sometimes the many changes and pressures you are facing threaten to overwhelm you. So it isn't surprising that from time to time you or one of your friends feels "down" or discouraged. But what about those times when a friend's activity and outlook on life stay "down" for weeks and begin to affect your relationship? If you know someone like this, your friend might be suffering from depression. As a friend, you can help. 1. FIND OUT MORE ABOUT DEPRESSION. Q. What is depression? A. Depression is more than the blues or the blahs; it is more than the normal, everyday ups and downs. When that "down" mood, along with other symptoms, lasts for more than a couple of weeks, the condition may be clinical depression. Clinical depression is a serious health problem that affects the total person. In addition to feelings, it can change behavior, physical health and appearance, academic performance, and the ability to handle everyday decisions and pressures. Q. What causes clinical depression?

Extractions: School, work, family, friends, relationships-these are important parts of our lives. At times they can also be sources of stress. If you are stressed you may feel really tired, have a headache, have trouble eating, sleeping, or concentrating, and/or feel nervous or irritable, among many other symptoms. It is hard to completely avoid stress, so it is good to learn how to deal with it. Some ways to deal with stress are to eat a healthy diet, consume less caffeine, get regular exercise, and get enough sleep. It is also helpful to avoid using alcohol or other substances. Take a break from whatever it is that makes you feel really stressed. Also, make sure that you do something for yourself everyday-something that you enjoy. Talk to someone you trust-don't keep stress bottled up inside. Try to always have a positive view and don't forget to have a sense of humor! If these things don't seem to help, talk to a counselor or health care provider about the way you are feeling.
NAGC Selfconsciousness, self-esteem and depression of gifted school children. Links Counselingand guidance Division-Home Page Counseling and guidance Division http://www.nagc.org/CounGuide/personal.html
Extractions: Conclusions 1. Gifted and talented students actively engaged in challenging programmatic options appear to be reasonably well-adjusted in terms of self-concept and social competence. The influence of a program upon this adjustment is not clear, nor can one ensure that program identification procedures contribute to adjustment. (Are only those who behave nominated for such programs?) 2. There are qualitative differences in motivational levels and in social and emotional issues related to school performance among the culturally diverse and economically disadvantaged populations of gifted students. The striving for racial identity may help to explain these differences among the culturally diverse, and the lack of access to choice of programs and materials may explain differences among the economically disadvantaged. 3. Early childhood learning experiences and respectful/authoritative parenting strategies contribute greatly to healthy personality development among gifted individuals.

In 1969 there were 57,600 rubella cases reported in the United States however by 1999 that number dropped dramatically to 232. Of these cases 4 or fewer states reported the majority of cases. While German measles was traditionally a disease of children 30 years ago, the new German measles cases are seen mainly among "foreign born Hispanic adults who are either unvaccinated or whose vaccination status is unknown". Congenital Rubella Syndrome (CRS) is a condition which used to be a leading cause of mental retardation in newborns and occurred when a pregnant mother became infected with the rubella virus. With the broad use of immunization starting in 1969 the occurrence of CRS cases has dropped dramatically and by the end of the 90s nearly half of the cases were imported from outside the United States. The authors feel that the United States is on the verge of eliminating rubella and Chronic Rubella Syndrome, but that the threat of CRS remains particularly high among women of child bearing age who are born outside the U.S.

This product has been approved for several years by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of severe nodular acne. Since the initial release of this drug, strong cautions have been given to health care providers and female patients to avoid pregnancy due to the extremely high risk of birth defects in the offspring of women who have taken even small amounts of Accutane. In fact, women have been encourage to use very reliable methods of birth control starting one month before and continuing one month after Accutane therapy. Despite this strong program, women have continued to conceive while taking Accutane, in some cases leading to horrific birth defects. In fact, with the initial launch of this drug in the past, it was recommended that a woman who conceived while taking Accutane should automatically seek an elective abortion.
