SOUTHAMPTON, NY, April 26, 2011 (Press-News.org) Award-winning sculptor Dorothy Frankel has been chosen to exhibit five bronze sculptures at the Newark Peace Education Summit. The three-day conference focuses on peacemaking practices from around the world, May 13-15, 2011 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey. Notable speakers at the event include His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Newark Mayor Cory Booker, Somaly Mam, Nobel Laureates and peace advocates from a wide cross section of cultures.

"My work is about peace, love, compassion so it' s a great honor to be chosen to display my hand sculptures at the Newark Peace Education Summit," says Frankel. "Having such distinguished speakers and peace activists gathered together is an exciting moment."

Frankel will display five bronze sculptures from her series of hands, all larger than life size: Connection, Peace, Love, Prayer Hands and Inner Peace. These sculptures embrace and express the complexities of human relationships. Each is a tribute to the inherent emotions that unite us, exalt us, and show us our commonality, our intrinsic bonds.

"My interest lies in images that lead to connection, hope and power of community. Connecting to oneself, another, animals or the environment," Frankel continues. I create sculptures and installation that lend themselves to this concept of reflection, quiet, community, and the human need of belonging. Taking basic hand gestures (some sign language) creates engagement with others. On a larger monumental scale these sculptures create a community gathering place, adding warmth and peace to the urban setting."

Psychologists warn that therapies based on positive emotions may not work for Asians

2011-04-26
Thinking happy thoughts, focusing on the good and downplaying the bad is believed to accelerate recovery from depression, bolster resilience during a crisis and improve overall mental health. But a new study by University of Washington psychologists reveals that pursuing happiness may not be beneficial across all cultures. In a survey of college students, Asian respondents showed no relationship between positive emotions and levels of stress and depression. For European-American participants, however, the more stress and depression they felt, the fewer positive emotions ...

A study analyzes the actual role of R+D's in patents

A study analyzes the actual role of R+Ds in patents
2011-04-26
This release is available in Spanish. For some time now there has been a certain degree of controversy regarding the effect of patents on the competitiveness of an economy. There are those who maintain that innovation is reduced when rights to a monopoly are given to a patent holder for a period of time, while others believe that it is the compensation necessary so that firms invest in R+D without having others take advantage of the innovations. The aim of the work of these researchers is to study the relationship between R+D and patents in a general context to be ...

Radar shows promise for detecting concussions in athletes and soldiers

Radar shows promise for detecting concussions in athletes and soldiers
2011-04-26
Walking and thinking at the same time can be especially difficult for persons who've suffered concussions, and scientists hope to use that multitasking challenge -- measured by a simple radar system -- to quickly screen individuals who may have suffered brain injuries. By asking an individual to walk a short distance while saying the months of the year in reverse order, researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) can determine if that person is impaired and possibly suffering from a concussion. This simple test, which could be performed on the sideline of ...

New perspectives on ion selectivity

New perspectives on ion selectivity
2011-04-26
The latest Perspectives in General Physiology series examines the ion selectivity of cation-selective channels and transporters. The series appears in the May 2011 issue of the Journal of General Physiology (www.jgp.org). According to Perspectives Editor Olaf Andersen in his introduction, a key tool in most recent studies on ion selectivity has been the so-called "toy models," which emphasize the fluid-like features of the selectivity filter and allow for the isolation of key features. Although proteins may indeed be fluid-like at small-length scales, however, they show ...

ACC/AHA issue first clinical guidance for controlling high blood pressure in the elderly

2011-04-26
Hypertension is very common among older adults. 64 percent of older men and 78 percent of older women have high blood pressure, placing them at heightened risk for heart disease including heart failure, stroke, coronary artery disease and atrial fibrillation, as well as chronic kidney disease and diabetes mellitus. Despite its prevalence, rates of blood pressure control remain substantially lower in the elderly than in younger patients. In fact, over age 80, only one in three men and one in four women have adequate control of their blood pressure. Faced with an aging patient ...

Protein levels could signal that a child will develop diabetes

Protein levels could signal that a child will develop diabetes
2011-04-26
AUGUSTA, Ga. – Decreasing blood levels of a protein that helps control inflammation may be a red flag that could help children avoid type 1 diabetes, researchers say. Georgia Health Sciences University researchers are looking at blood levels of interleukin-1 receptor antagonist, or IL-1ra, in children being closely followed because their genes put them at risk for type 1 diabetes. They also are looking at diabetic mice missing IL-1ra to see how the protein deficiency affects immune function and destruction of insulin-producing islet beta cells. "We want to know if we ...
