Social causes of health and disease [electronic resource] / William C. Cockerham In this stimulating book, William C. Cockerham, a leading medical sociologist, assesses the evidence that social factors (such as stress, poverty, unhealthy lifestyles, and unpleasant living and work conditions) have direct causal effects on health and many diseases. Noting a new emphasis upon social structure in both theory and multi-level research techniques, the author argues that a paradigm shift has been emerging in 21st-century medical sociology, which looks beyond individual explanations for health and disease. The field has headed toward a fundamentally different orientation, and Cockerham's work has been at the forefront of these changes.

18 Remarkable Photos of Nature Reclaiming Civilization Source: danjur Humanity is often proud of its great feats of engineering, we are dazzled by the structures we can create, by our mastery over our surroundings, and all of this is for good reason. The science and mathematics behind the structures of civilization are amazing, but nature shows no particular respect for all the hard work. One way or another, things that are left to decay will be taken back by the unstoppable forces of nature.

Health of People, Places and Planet - ANU Press - ANU This book has three main goals. The first is to celebrate the work of a great public health figure, the late A.J. (Tony) McMichael (1942–2014). The second is to position contemporary public health issues in an interdisciplinary context and in ways that highlight the interdependency between the environment, human institutions and behaviours; a broad approach championed by Tony.

Aurora australis as seen from the Australian and New Zealand mainlands Updated The swirls, twists, and curtains of light of the aurora australis were visible from the Australian and New Zealand mainland overnight. The natural light display caused a flurry of excitement, captured on social media. As explained by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, the phenomenon is caused when electrically charged electrons and protons accelerate down the Earth's magnetic field lines and collide with neutral atoms in the upper atmosphere — usually about 100 kilometres above the Earth. "These collisions cause the neutral atoms to fluoresce, emitting light at many different wavelengths.

These 'Mind-Blowing And Humbling' Instagram Photos Will Remind You Of Earth's Wild Beauty Sam and Amanda Ciurdar often find themselves retreating into nature, captivated by Earth’s beauty. The Southern California couple, both devout Christians, take every opportunity to travel into the wilderness with their cameras in tow. Whether it's the forests of Oregon or the sand dunes of their home state, nature is the place for them to meditate and be present. “It feels like that’s truly where we belong,” Amanda told HuffPost. “There’s just something that happens in our souls where we’re able to disconnect from the busyness of life.” There’s plenty of vast, wide open spaces in the couple’s photography -- a reminder, Sam says, of how small humans are compared to God’s creation.
