— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) recently celebrated its 29th year as a mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children and families from abuses in the mental health industry. Starting out as a simple volunteer activity in 1977, CCHR Florida became a formal chapter in 1989, growing from a small group of human rights activists into a statewide movement that regularly garners newspaper and television coverage on mental health abuses.[1]

In 29 years, CCHR Florida has created a track record of being the only non-profit resource that both educates and actively protects citizens against ongoing psychiatric abuses. As an example, the campaign to protect children from illegal Baker Acting— a statewide crisis that has resulted in 32,763 involuntary examinations initiated on children during 2016-2017— has reached over 184,000 Florida families.[2]

CCHR started the crusade to restore rights and dignity to the field of mental health in 1977 by taking the issue of consent to Tallahassee to promote a bill that would eventually result in a watershed victory for patient rights in Florida: helping to pass legislation that required informed consent before ECT (electro-convulsive therapy) could be administered to mental health patients. Prior to CCHR’s work to protect patients, those labeled as mentally ill would receive ECT treatments without their consent. ECT is the practice of sending 460 volts of electricity to a patient’s brain by use of electrodes— like what cattle receive in slaughterhouses— and has been documented to cause brain damage, long term memory loss, and death.[3] Thousands of survivors of ECT have complained of its traumatic effects on their lives, and in Texas— the only state that actually reports deaths 14 days post-ECT treatment— reported a death rate in recent years that represents an estimated 300 deaths nationally each year from ECT.[4]

In the early formative years, CCHR also instigated a statewide campaign to educate Florida’s citizens on the dangers of the drug Ritalin which has been documented to contribute to suicide, drug addiction and even early death.[5] This free public information campaign offered several alternatives to the use of Ritalin—especially useful since Ritalin began being prescribed 20 years prior to the age of the internet and there were little to no public resources on Ritalin available.[6]

Also notable was CCHR’s investigation and exposure of patient abuse at Anclote Manor Psychiatric Hospital, an inpatient mental health facility mainly for teenage boys that was located in Tarpon Springs—20 miles north of Clearwater. Anclote Manor had earned a national reputation due to judges from all over the U.S. giving troubled teenage boys two choices: face prosecution for their crime resulting in a permanent record for having committed a felony or be committed to Anclote Manor Psychiatric Hospital to receive treatment.

During the investigation CCHR exposed the abusive use of insulin shock, the wrapping of patients in freezing sheets and much more. Using public demonstrations depicting the abuses that were leaked out of Anclote Manor Psychiatric Hospital by patients and staff alike, CCHR was able to garner public attention to the truth of the hospital’s barbaric practices ultimately leading to the closure of Anclote Manor.

Protecting children is just one facet of CCHR’s push for human rights in Florida. In 1981, the widespread practice of using the mental health law to have the elderly declared "incompetent" was exposed by CCHR. At that time, and based upon a single petition from a relative, the court would order two psychiatrists to complete a surprise 5-minute interview on an unsuspecting senior at their home. In approximately 98% of the cases, the elderly person would be found incompetent by the psychiatrists, and would be stripped of any legal rights.

CCHR Florida spearheaded what became a massive investigation into this issue by helping to restore the legal competency of two senior citizens, one from Clearwater (who had been imprisoned in a locked psychiatric ward in a nursing home) and the other from Riverview. The Clearwater Sun decided to look into the abuses and the result was a 6-part series entitled “Guardianship— Protection or Prison,” which was highly critical of the entire mental health system. Once again CCHR didn’t just settled for exposing the abuse but embarked upon a public information campaign to educate seniors on their rights including the legal consequences of being declared incompetent, how to be restored to competency, uses and abuses of guardianship, and alternatives to guardianship.

Unfortunately, similar elder abuses still happen today. According to the Annual Report on the Baker Act, released in March of 2017, there were 194,354 involuntary examinations conducted under the guise of treatment in 2016— more than doubling from 2001— with 1 in 10 initiated on persons 65 years of age or older. That means that 13,800 of Florida’s elderly, including those with dementia, were sent for involuntary psychiatric examinations in 2016.

More recently, and having grown to more than 3,000 members, CCHR has helped to secure the safe release of more than 800 people from unjust Baker Acts since 2015 and is currently engaged in campaigns to stop the illegal involuntary psychiatric examination of children, to expose the deadly connection between violence, suicides and psychiatric drugs and to ban the use of electroshock therapy in Florida.

Anyone wishing to report psychiatric abuse is encouraged to contact CCHR Florida at 727-442-8820 or visit the center located at 109 N. Fort Harrison Avenue in downtown.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.org

Why do Women Hold Just 24% of STEM Jobs in the U.S.A.?

Efforts that encourage women to pursue careers in STEM fields haven’t been able to erase some of the long-standing stereotypes and biases facing women who choose to pursue work in high-tech careers.”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, August 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Are American women achieving their full potential as educated participants in the job market? By some measures, the answer is increasingly “yes.” For example, the number of male and female undergraduate degree holders is now roughly equal, and the number of college-educated women in the job market has just recently surpassed the number of college-educated male workers. However, when it comes to degrees and jobs in the fields of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (collectively known as STEM), the numbers for women in STEM tell a different story. As of 2015, women in STEM statistics from the Federal government indicate that women earn just 3 out of every 10 undergraduate STEM degrees, and in the job market, women hold fewer than 1 in 4 jobs in STEM professions. We’ll take a look at some of the underlying reasons for this inequality and why it’s important to encourage more women in STEM.

NEW INTERACTIVE CHARTS FROM THE U.S. CENSUS MAKE IT EASY TO VISUALIZE WOMEN IN STEM STATISTICS

Thanks to some very elegant charts created by the U.S. Census Bureau, it’s easier than ever to understand the relationships between undergraduate degrees obtained by men and women and the type of occupations they pursue in their careers. This quick video gives you a clear idea of how these interactive charts work:

Where Do College Graduates Work

Now let’s take a closer look at these interactive charts. (You can find them here on the U.S. Census Website.)

Female STEM Major Graduates and their Corresponding Careers

In the static screenshot above, we selected Women graduates with STEM degrees; their top college majors are Social Sciences, followed by Psychology, and then by a group consisting of majors in the fields of Biological, Environmental, and Agricultural Sciences.

(Tip: to see the numerical data in Excel format, visit the live chart on the U.S. Census web page and use the link found below the live chart.)

Now let’s change our criteria by selecting Men with STEM Majors.

Male STEM Major Graduates and their Corresponding Careers

Once you set the criteria to men holding a STEM degree, what jumps out at you is the large upside-down yellow arc that connects engineering majors on the left to engineering careers on the right. This arc represents the large pipeline of male engineering graduates who take engineering jobs.

While around half of these male graduates end up working in non-STEM careers (as indicated by the grayed-out lines), men still far outnumber women in obtaining both engineering degrees and engineering jobs. (Indeed, women hold only 14% of engineering positions, according to the Census Bureau.)

WHY AREN’T THERE MORE WOMEN WORKING IN STEM OCCUPATIONS?

When it comes to understanding why the number of women in STEM occupations falls short, particularly in the fields of engineering and computer science, the charts above give us one important clue: the pipeline for STEM undergraduates is skewed toward men.

That means to achieve greater equality in the workplace, it will be necessary to recruit more women to pursue STEM degrees — as well as ensuring these women graduates actually make it all the way to being hired in a STEM career. (As you can see from the charts above, quite a few women with STEM degrees are electing to pursue careers in non-STEM fields, such as healthcare.)

More and more programs are now encouraging and mentoring young girls to learn about the possibility of pursuing successful and rewarding STEM careers — ranging from the Girl Scouts (who recently introduced a STEM Merit Badge) to numerous summer camp programs designed to teach young girls how to code.

Tip: STEMConnector is a useful website for finding news about STEM initiatives and resources in your area of the country.

OVERCOMING BIASES AGAINST WOMEN IN STEM

Efforts that encourage women to pursue careers in STEM fields haven’t been able to erase some of the long-standing stereotypes and biases facing women who choose to pursue work in high-tech careers.

For example, a recent study at the University of Colorado at Boulder identified a pattern of bias against women who have longer hair or finer facial features — just by looking at photos, a large number of study participants tended to incorrectly assume that those women in the photographs were primary school teachers rather than scientists.

Other biases that women working in STEM can encounter include what’s now commonly known as “Mansplaining” and its related condition, “He-Peating.”

Video of a Virtual Reality Training Session which Illustrates a Real World Example of Mansplaining in an Office Meeting

If you are not up to speed on the current terminology, mansplaining is the unfortunate but very real tendency of certain men to provide unnecessarily condescending explanations to female colleagues. He-peating refers to situations where a man repeats an idea or suggestion made by a woman, such as during a meeting. While the woman’s original suggestion was ignored or dismissed, the group embraces the idea when it’s repeated by a man, who gladly takes credit for the idea.

Women who are (or plan to be) parents also face discrimination in the job hiring and promotions process that their male colleagues do not. In order to better understand how and why this happens, Stanford University Sociology Professor Shelley J. Correll conducted a study where two identically qualified candidates were presented to test subjects taking on the role of “hiring managers.” After the hiring managers selected two equally qualified candidates from a pool of applicants, researchers alerted them that one of the candidates was, in fact, a parent. In the study, the hiring managers didn’t change their opinion about the candidate if he was a male parent. However, if the job candidate was female, the hiring managers preferred to select the other, non-parent candidate — and they were only willing to consider hiring the female parent candidate when the starting salary was reduced by an average of $11,000.

Despite the biases against working mothers, many women continue to pursue a professional career. However, quite a few also decide to voluntarily exit the career track as they reach their late 30s and 40s (an age which would be considered ‘mid-career’ amongst men). Researcher Pamela Stone has investigated this “mommy track” phenomenon and has dispelled many of the myths commonly associated with professional women electing to “opt out” of the workforce well before retirement age. From Stone’s analysis, it’s clear that much work needs to be done to achieve a greater life/work balance in the workplace, including making part-time work and job sharing a more socially acceptable practice, so that so that women can pursue fulfilling, life-long professional careers.

Finally, we must address the issue of sexual harassment and sexual assault in the workplace. During the past year, the growing “#MeToo” movement has shone a light on shocking, high-profile cases of men in politics and media who have used their positions of power and influence to sexually harass and abuse women. As more and more women have come forward to tell their stories, one can only hope that we, as a society, can work together to build a more honorable and respectful environment for women in the workplace.

WHY WE NEED MORE WOMEN IN STEM OCCUPATIONS

Take a look at the chart below which illustrates the changing nature of the STEM job market since 1970. (Source: U.S. Census)

As you can see, the top two STEM careers (as ranked by the number of positions in the job market) are engineering and computing. Both of these careers are prestigious, well paid (the median annual income of engineering jobs is $92,900), and offer lots of opportunities for growth and advancement. The number of computing jobs is growing the fastest; it became the largest STEM job category just before the year 2000.

Yet, despite the high salaries and prestige associated with these careers, these are the very STEM fields where participation by women is particularly low. For women to enjoy the same economic opportunities and prestige status as men, it’s important that they are given an equal shot at these STEM career opportunities.

But what if you don’t believe in the need for equal opportunity as a stand-alone goal? Are there other reasons you might want more women to work in STEM occupations?

One important reason we need more women in STEM fields is to tackle the overall shortage of talented, high-tech workers, an issue that is projected to become direr as an ever-increasing number of Baby Boomer workers retire. Excluding half of the potential candidates just doesn’t make any sense.

Many businesses believe that a diverse workplace also leads to better decisions, and ultimately, higher profits. According to survey results published in a Peterson Institute for International Economics working paper, companies with 30% or more women in C-Suite leadership roles are more profitable, earning up to 15% higher net income on average.

Ethics might provide another important reason. Researchers Kennedy and Kray studied the behavior of both men and women in two different scenarios; one using workers recruited by Amazon’s Mechanical Turk Service, and another using male and female college students. In both cases, women were more likely to flag ethically questionable decisions. For those companies who have been found guilty of putting profit ahead of principles, such as the Volkswagen Group (whose engineers sought to defeat smog testing devices with illegal software), having more women engineers and computer scientists on staff might have helped them avoid the damage to their employers’ reputation, as well as massive fines and now jail sentences being meted out to their male colleagues.

We’re curious to hear your point of view.

Global Automakers Believe All Powertrains Would be Electrified to Some Degree by 2030, Finds New Report

Global Powertrain Market Research Report

Global Powertrain Market Research Report

Market Research Reports Inc.

Market Research Reports Inc.

The latest powertrain market research report covers renown automotive players like Bosch, Hitachi Automotive Systems, Magneti Marelli along with 10+ players.

Emissions and fuel economy regulations required a defined test procedure to ensure they are being met and to ensure all vehicles were being judged equally.”

— AUTL

LEWES, DELAWARE, DELAWARE, UNITED STATES, August 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 21st century powertrain saw a new phenomenon with the development of the hybrid electric vehicle, debuted by Toyota in its Prius model in 1997. Modern 21st century powertrains are quite different from those of the 20th century, which were dominated by gasoline or diesel only. ‘Conventional’ powertrains consist of internal combustion engines, transmissions, and rudimentary control systems. They now share a market with ‘hybrid’ powertrains that were marketed and sold as fuel-efficient and environment-friendly alternatives – at a higher price. The hybrid electric vehicles, or HEVs, now include IC engines, batteries, transmissions, generator/motors and complex control systems. They started their commercial life marketed as separate products. They were draped in environment-friendly and fuel-efficient garb and badges to justify the higher price point for the added equipment.

That is beginning to change. Automakers have stated in open forums around the world that they believe many powertrains will be electrified to some degree by 2030, for a variety of reasons. Clearly, electrification is certain. The question is how much?

This Powertrain to 2030: Trends and Risks report examines current trends in electrified powertrain development for light duty vehicles and makes educated projections of how those trends might evolve by 2025 to 2030. It is important to note that this report builds on an initial report published in June 2016. The intervening two years has seen a confirmation of some trends, elimination of others, and intensification of a few.

Key Questions, Uncertainties, and Trends
What will profoundly affect the Consensus View, altering its projections about the various technologies? The author believes that there are really a few strategic questions, the answers to which will determine the near-term future of automotive powertrains.
1. What is the probability that the emissions and fuel economy regulations projected for 2021 through 2025 will remain as currently envisioned? If they change, in what direction will that be? (More stringent or less stringent.)
2. What is the probability that the emissions and fuel economy regulations, which have been relatively uniform in their vision worldwide, will drastically change that vision and separate into some countries regulating strictly in some regulating less strictly?
3. What is the likelihood that oil prices will remain volatile? What is the likelihood that they will return to the relatively low prices of 2016 or rise again? (A related question to this is: How important is fuel price to the pressures put on automakers?)
4. What is the likelihood that a significant technical disruptor will be introduced in the next few years, significant enough and early enough, to change the Consensus View by 2030, all other factors remaining equal?
5. What is the likelihood that a substantial number of consumers, say more than 17%, will become aware of and embrace HEV, PHEVs, or BEVs as alternatives to ICE driven vehicles, based on Total Cost of Ownership or some other reason, like Fun to Drive?
6. What is the likelihood that in the Consensus View, the current trends in powertrain developments will achieve their goals if no technical disruptor emerge

Hyundai awards $1 million grant to Foundation for pediatric cancer research

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, August 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Intermountain Foundation at Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital has received a $1 million Hyundai Quantum Grant from Hyundai Hope on Wheels®, a not-for-profit organization that is committed to finding a cure for childhood cancer. The rare Quantum Grant, which is Hyundai Hope on Wheels’ largest grant category given to support research on pediatric cancers with low survival rates, was awarded to just four recipients nationwide.

The gift will allow Dr. Joshua Schiffman of the University of Utah School of Medicine, Huntsman Cancer Institute and Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital to explore with his team whether the TP53 gene, shared by elephants and humans, may provide a novel treatment option for osteosarcoma, the most commonly diagnosed bone tumor in children and adolescents. While humans have 2 copies of the gene, elephants have 40 copies of the tumor-fighting gene. Dr. Schiffman, who is a pediatric cancer survivor and pediatric oncologist, and his team believe the extra elephant genes may help to explain elephants’ natural ability to avoid cancer.

Representatives from Hyundai and Intermountain joined community members, cancer patients, and cancer survivors at Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital to celebrate the generous gift. Hospital CEO Katy Welkie told the gathered crowd, “The work we do to save lives, find cures, and bring hope is what keeps me motivated and driven in my work. I’m honored to share this day with our generous donors from Hyundai Hope on Wheels, and Dr. Josh Schiffman, a physician, researcher, and colleague I admire and respect for the work he’s doing to cure cancer.”

President and CEO of Hyundai Motor America Kenny Lee said, “We want to help provide more support to help save children’s lives. We know that finding cures for pediatric cancer is a difficult task. But we are confident through the dedication and determination of doctor-researchers, such as those here at Primary Children’s, we can find a cure.”

Patients battling cancer at Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital participated in the program’s signature Handprint Ceremony by dipping their hands in different colors of paint and placing them on a white 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe. The result served as a representation of their individual and collective journeys, hopes, and dreams.

About Intermountain Foundation

John Marshall Law School Professor Lousin Honored for Seventh Consecutive Year by Illinois State Historical Society

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, August 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Professor Ann M. Lousin of The John Marshall Law School in Chicago was once again honored by the Illinois State Historical Society for her writings on public issues happening in Illinois. This is the seventh consecutive year the ISHS has honored Lousin.

This year Lousin received a Certificate of Excellence for three articles she wrote as part of her ongoing column featured in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin. The first column, “Here’s a somewhat painless way to redistrict without the courts,” discussed Gill v. Whitford, a redistricting case that went before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The second column, “What’s in a name in Chicago? Changing times, changing standards,” focused on the recent controversy about pulling down monuments and its relevance to Chicago, where the Balbo monument has become controversial.

The third and final column was “200 years ago, Illinois took a step to statehood,” which discussed the history behind Illinois becoming a state. Lousin was a research assistant at the 1969-1970 Illinois Constitutional Convention. She also served as staff assistant to the Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives, including a term as Parliamentarian of the House.

According to the ISHS, “Professor Ann Lousin’s columns are informed, well-written, and insightful. Her writing would be welcome in any publication, and her style and point of view are refreshing, worthy of our respect and admiration. We especially enjoyed her column on the Balbo monument and the need for new historical markers in Chicago. Her tease about bicentennial columns to come suggests next year’s crop will delight all who care about Prairie State history.”

In previous years, she received awards for her writing on a variety of topics, including Illinois constitutional amendments and the Fort Dearborn Massacre.

Lousin has served on several nonprofit boards and governmental commissions, including a term as chairman of the Illinois State Civil Service Commission. She has been a leader in other legal organizations, including service as chair of the Board of Governors of the Armenian Bar Association from 1995 to 1998. She also lectures and consults on the Illinois Constitution, general public law issues and commercial law in the U.S. and abroad. In 2009 she was elected a member of the American Law Institute.

In 2016, the Armenian Bar Association named its inaugural legal scholar award “The Ann M. Lousin Scholar of Law Award,” in her honor.

Lousin joined the John Marshall faculty in 1975. She primarily teaches Sales Transactions and Illinois Constitutional Law. Lousin received her bachelor’s degree from Grinnell College and her law degree from The University of Chicago. Between college and law school, she studied political science at the University of Heidelberg in Germany.

InsightsNow Announces Availability of New Behavioral Research Approach: PlayFULL Insights®

Innovative qualitative approach supports consumer-driven product development ideation and facilitated problem-solving for marketing and brand strategy research

CHICAGO, IL, USA, August 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — 28 August 2018 – Chicago, IL – InsightsNow, a behavioral research firm, has added an innovative new approach to the qualitative research toolbox offered to their clients, PlayFULL Insights® (PFI). PFI is an application of the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method—a facilitated thinking, communication and problem-solving technique where participants use LEGO® bricks to build stories in response to a trained moderator’s carefully-crafted questions.

PlayFULL Insights® fosters “prospective thinking”—a mode of thinking identified by psychologists as “System 3”—which is one of three ways to make decisions. Two other types of thinking are “System 1” where people make decisions fast using intuitive, more impulsive mental processes and System 2 where decisions are made more slowly using rational processes. Prospective “System 3” thinking involves remembering the past to anticipate future outcomes—where motives for decisions are based on anticipatory emotions such as desire, hope, fear and intrigue.

“PlayFULL Insights allows participants to use fresh new thinking as they build, share and reflect upon their personally created 3-D models,” said Karen Lynch, Senior Director of Qualitative Insights at InsightsNow and original co-creator of PFI. “Stories about their models becomes the basis for group discussion. By using this unique and innovative method, new and actionable insights are uncovered, and clients can amplify the wisdom they seek for their market research initiatives.”
