Reality Therapy Exercises

    reality therapy

  • Reality therapy is an approach to psychotherapy and counseling. It was developed by the psychiatrist Dr. William Glasser in 1965. Reality therapy is a considered a cognitive-behavioural approach to treatment .

Foot Reflexology Session

We are constantly on the move, walking, running, working and playing. Hectic schedules produce a tremendous amount of stress, both on our bodies and our minds. As a result we are continually searching for ways to reduce the tension in our lives.

One ancient healing practice has been relieving stress for people around the world for more than 4000 years: REFLEXOLOGY.

It is effective and easy to learn. With this step-by-step DVD, you and your partner will learn the simple techniques used to stimulate the reflex areas of the feet. Areas that correspond to all the different areas of the body, including organs, muscle groups, the nerves and even the brain.

Use Foot Reflexology to relieve stress and tension, to help promote healing and especially for personal pleasure and relaxation.

* Relieve Stress and Tension
* Ease Pain and Discomfort
* Enjoy Deep Relaxation

160: Human-Animal Synthetic Organisms

160: Human-Animal Synthetic Organisms
Human-Animal Synthetic Organisms: After more than a decade of stem cell research, scientists are now facing hurdles with cell therapy from the present human embryonic stem cell experimentation. The next phase involves human-animal combinations via Chimeras, Hybrids and Cybrids. The ATCA and HQR image shows Patricia Piccinini’s "The Young Family" and reflects on the perils of creating human-animal synthetic organisms.

1. A Chimera is produced when a human embryo is fused with an animal embryo;
2. An Hybrid is produced when a human female egg is fertilised with animal sperm or vice-versa; and
3. A "Cybrid" is produced when an animal cell’s genetic material is removed and replaced with human genetic material.

Some key questions arise:

1. Should human genetic material be fused with animal cells to create clones of hybrids and cybrids for research?
2. Are human body replacement parts which are part human and part animal appropriate?

Whilst this human-animal combination may open up more potential for future cell therapy and cures for serious illnesses like cancer, there are clear asymmetric threats emerging for humanity. At the same time, it is not clear that if we create human-animal combinations as test beds for research into cancer or other deadly diseases, any success in identifying new treatments will necessarily replicate reliably in the context of the human species. We may indeed have found solutions for the artificially created human-animal synthetic species which may completely fail on the classic "human being." Hence defeating the purpose of the entire exercise.

Background problem

Why is there a rising need for human-animal combinations for biomedical research? Scientists are facing difficulty getting volunteers to donate human donor eggs for cell based research and therapeutic cloning as egg donation is a procedure which poses some risks to a healthy human female’s life. The fusion of human genetic material with animal ova is thought to produce cells which behave in a manner identical to human embryos obtained from in vitro fertilisation (IVF). In IVF obtained embryos, the inner cell mass (ICM) of these minute human embryos would normally differentiate to form various organs of the human body. But when the ICM is removed for human therapeutic cloning experiments including embryonic stem cell research, the human embryo must die. This is the major moral and ethical objection of therapeutic cloning in regard to human embryos.

Rabbit-human hybrid embryos

In August 2003, Hui Zhen Sheng of Shanghai Second Medical University, China, announced that rabbit-human ‘cybrid’ embryos had been created. Researchers fused adult human material with rabbit eggs stripped of their original genetic material and created rabbit-human hybrid embryos which developed to approximately the 100-cell stage, after about four days of development. Moreover, the scientists claimed to derive stem cells from these embryos similar to conventional human embryonic stem cells.

Historic attempts at human-ape

There are well-documented reports that a few scientists in the mid-1920s made serious attempts to create a half-human, half-chimpanzee. One of the Soviet Union’s top scientists, Professor Ilya Ivanov, tried to impregnate female chimpanzees with human sperm in Africa in order to create a human-chimpanzee hybrid (a humanzee). These experiments were unsuccessful, but at the time many colleagues believed it was probably feasible in the future. The "Humanzee" is becoming possible in the 21st century.

Chimeras

A chimera of either form of hybrid will have both human and animal tissues. Examples of classic chimeras include the mule, which is a cross between a horse and a donkey. Mythical examples of chimeras include the Merlion (human and a fish) and Centaur (body of a horse and a human head).

The Asymmetric Threats from Human-Animal Synthetic Organisms

1. Medical science has repeatedly shown that animal diseases can be transmitted into humans by any remnant animal protein or genetic fragment, especially from animal protein or genetic material remaining in the egg of the animal. Such diseases can include cancer, leukaemia, or even Alzheimer dementia and mad cow disease by difficult-to-detect prion protein.

2. Serious animal infections, presently confined only to the animal kingdom, can cross the species barrier and infect humans. For example, the HIV virus was transmitted from chimpanzees to humans. It was absent prior to the 1950s but started appearing in Africa either when some tribes ate infected chimps or was passed by errant researchers using chimpanzee serum for human treatment. Chicken eggs may contain the fatal avian virus, and poultry hepatitis B viruses which cause liver cancer.

3. If a human being is created in the Chimera form, and then its life is terminated, this could be legally and ethically unjustifiable.

4. It may be said that any form of mixing violates natural boundaries

Pull-Up Assistant Kit - Makes Pull-Ups a Reality
The Pull-Up-Assistant enables virtually any 4th through 12th grade student to perform a real pull-up. The trick is in reducing the student’s weight. The Pull-Up-Assistant is attached to existing pull-up bars via mountain-climbing-quality straps and hardware. A secure foot platform and bungee cords effectively reduce the weight of the user. As the strength and repetitions are increased, the number of bungee cords are systematically reduced. Students become less dependent on the Pull-Up-Assistant and more dependent on their own muscles. Eventually, the Pull-Up-Assistant is eliminated. In a carefully monitored and documented program at Elkton, Va. Elementary School, after using the Pull-Up-Assistant in a 4 month training period. Boys increased their unassisted pull-up results from 32% to 54%, and girls increased their results from 20% to 46%. The Pull-Up-Assistant comes with three pairs of bungee cords, a foot platform, adjustable retaining strap, quick link and carabineer connectors, pull-up bar attachment strap and indoor and outdoor retaining straps. The Pull-Up Assistant Accessory Kit includes two additional bungee cords, and is recommended for programs where student’s weight exceeds 200 lbs.
