Who stole my religion? : Revitalizing Judaism and applying Jewish values to help heal our imperiled planet by Richard H Schwartz( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A thought-provoking and timely call to apply Judaism's powerful teachings to help shift our imperiled planet onto a sustainable path. While appreciating the radical, transformative nature of Judaism, Richard Schwartz argues that it has been "stolen" by Jews who are in denial about climate change and other environmental threats and support politicians and policies that may be inconsistent with basic Jewish values. Tackling such diverse issues as climate change, world hunger, vegetarianism, poverty, terrorism, destruction of the environment, peace prospects in Israel, and American foreign policy, he offers practical suggestions for getting Judaism back on track as a faith based on justice, peace, and compassion. He urges the reader to reconsider current issues in line with Judaism's highest values in an effort to meet the pressing challenges of today's world." --
A sacred duty : applying Jewish values to help heal the world( Visual )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary addresses the environmental crisis now facing humanity. With global warming threatening catastrophic impacts, it is imperative that we respond quickly to help shift our imperiled planet to a sustainable path. The message of the film is founded upon the ancient teachings of the Torah and other Jewish scriptures. It includes numerous references to the sacred texts read by acclaimed Broadway and screen actor Theodore Bikel and examines how they have profound relevance today. The film aims to motivate positive action by applying Jewish teachings to how we use natural resources, take care of our health, obtain our food, and live in peace among our fellow beings. It offers simple, practical measures for reducing our impact on the planet and shows how a plant-based diet can reduce environmental degradation and improve human health and welfare. It also addresses fundamental moral and ethical issues related to our diets, including how animals are reared and mistreated on factory farms. Inspired by the writings of vegetarian activist and mathematician Prof. Richard H. Schwartz, this one-hour production features leading Israeli and American environmentalists, medical authorities, educators, social activists and animal rights experts. In addition to compelling scenes filmed all over the world, it includes statements from Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist rabbis, as well as secular leaders

Survey to child/adolescent psychiatry and developmental/behavioral pediatric training directors to expand psychiatric-mental health training to nurse practitioners( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Background: There is an ongoing shortage of child mental health professionals. Nurse practitioners (NPs) who completed behavioral and mental health training have proven that they can diagnose and manage many pediatric problems. Purpose: To ask the training directors of both child/adolescent psychiatry (CAP) and developmental/behavioral pediatric (DBP) programs about their receptivity and willingness to give additional training for NPs who provide care to children with behavioral and mental health issues and examine the main obstacles to the development of such programs. Methods: A survey was sent to 151 CAP and DBP training directors in the United States. Results: The return rate was 67% (N = 101). Only 12% expressed objection to the concept of additional NP training in CAP or DBP, but only 53% of training directors currently reported having sufficient faculty to do so. Some training directors reported already having advanced behavioral and mental health training programs for NPs (31%) and most (82%) would consider expanding, if funded. Conclusions: There is support for advanced training for NPs, but funding is needed to make this a reality. Implications for practice: Expansion of such programs might rapidly improve accessibility and reduce waiting time of mental health providers for children and adolescents

Rapid Population Growth-Cause or Result of Global Problems? by Richard H Schwartz( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Explosive population growth is a symptom of the world's unjust and inequitable social, political, and economic conditions. The current rate of growth is staggering, particularly in the cities of the underdeveloped countries. While some progress has been made in slowing population growth, several factors still contribute to its momentum. One of these factors is the large population increase in poorer countries. In these countries, it is economically advantageous to have large families; therefore, until conditions improve, it is not likely that the birth rate will decrease. Many people advocate zero population growth; however, what the world may need is zero population impact growth. Affluent nations have an environmental impact that is disproportionate to their population. They waste resources which could be used by the poorer countries to improve their socioeconomic conditions, thereby allowing people the economic security necessary to consider having smaller families. The belief that overpopulation can be combatted by birth control and family planning ignores the fact that it is really the result of a wasteful world. Major changes in social, political, and economic systems are necessary to reduce population growth. (Dc)
BD Veritor System Respiratory Syncytial Virus Rapid Antigen Detection Test( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Background: During respiratory syncytial virus season, many children present to pediatric offices and urgent care medical facilities with cough, tachypnea, intercostal retraction, wheezing, as well as disturbed appetite and sleep. Identification of the responsible viral pathogen is quite difficult because several pathogens can produce similar signs and symptoms. Methods: Nasopharyngeal specimens were collected from symptomatic sick children younger than 6 years, in 8 geographically representative primary care pediatric practices during a 4-month RSV season. Institutional review board approval and signed parental consent were obtained. The primary objective of the study was the estimation of the sensitivity and specificity of the Becton Dickinson (BD) Veritor RSV point-of-care (POC) assay as compared with reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Results: Of 523 specimens, 58.3% (n = 305) were from patients younger than 2 years. The BD Veritor RSV POC assay sensitivity and specificity are 81.6% (146/179) and 99.1% (341/344), respectively. When compared with RT-PCR, the BD Veritor RSV POC assay false positive was 0.9% (3/344, with a 95% confidence interval of 0.3%-2.5%) and the false negative was 18.4% (33/179, with a 95% confidence interval of 13.4%-24.5%). The BD Veritor RSV POC assay identified more true positive specimens (n = 146) than viral cell culture (n = 134 positive specimens). Conclusions: In 8 participating primary care pediatric offices with 523 evaluable subjects, POC BD Veritor RSV tests performed better than viral cell culture results when RT-PCR was the reference standard
Vision Photoscreening of Infants and Young Children in a Primary Care Pediatric Office( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Objective . The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility and accuracy of vision photoscreening a large cohort of asymptomatic children age 6 months to 6 years. Methods . Photoscreening was performed at the 6 and 18 months and annually at the 2- to 5-year scheduled pediatric health assessment visits. Results . A total of 1976 children underwent photoscreening for amblyopic risk factors during an 18-month period; 167 of them (8.5%) screened positive. Of the 94 study children who were evaluated by a pediatric ophthalmologist, 25 required intervention at their initial visit (26.6%). Ten children were diagnosed with amblyopia, representing 0.5% of all children screened. Conclusion . Vision photoscreening of 1976 young children identified 10 with previously undiagnosed amblyopia and an additional 15 with treatable pre-amblyopic risk factors. It is unlikely that any of these children with serious refractive errors would have been detected without the use of in-office vision photoscreening
Teaching Global Issues Through Mathematics. Development Education Paper No. 20 by Richard H Schwartz( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The document shows how teachers can use mathematics problems to teach fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students about critical global issues. The problems are arranged according to development topics. For each problem, the solution, reference source, and mathematical skills to be strengthened are given; global issues related to each problem are also briefly discussed. The first two mathematical problems relate to "Population." The other global issues included are "Poverty and Effects, ""Waste in Affluent Nations, ""The Arms Race," and "Global Hunger." Usng these and similar mathematical problems, teachers can introduce interesting and valuable information and concepts. More important than the specific information in any problem, however, is the process of inquiry students gain from discussions of the significance of the results for their world's future. In effect, calculating the answer to one of the sample math problems raises a host of other related questions: "Are we running out of natural resources?""What impact does the arms race have on the meeting of human needs?""How serious is the population explosion?" Concepts of interdependence, change, communication, and conflict can be used as organizing themes for discussion and as a context for information gathering and further inquiry. (Author)

Mathematics and Global Perspectives: A Working Team by Richard H Schwartz( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Ways in which mathematics and global education can be combined are described. Following a discussion of the need for having a citizenry capable of analyzing global issues, methods of infusing global education into the mathematics curriculum and math into the social studies curriculum are offered. Half of the document consists of eight sample problems which combine math skills and global issues. The problems (which can be used in either math or social studies classes) address waste in affluent nations, the arms race, population, global income inequalities, and global hunger. A list of resources is included. (Dc)
Submasseteric Infection( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Abstract: Submasseteric space infections are rare at any age but particularly so in primary school children. The origin of the infection is usually odontogenic, from pericoronitis in a third molar. Submasseteric inflammation is a deep facial space inflammation, often progressing to mature abscess, and usually misdiagnosed as staphylococcal or streptococcal lymphadenitis or pyogenic parotitis. The hallmark of a masticatory space infection is trismus. The cardinal signs of this infection include a firm mass in the body of the masseter muscle with overlying cellulitis with trismus
