Bulimia and Anorexia Nervosa : An Examination of the Two According to some estimates, as many as 85% of American women are dissatisfied with their weight. Few, if any, think that they are too thin.

According to my reading, the consensus is quite clear that we are witnessing an epidemic of sub-clinical eating disorders. The term applies to women who do not meet t

He talks to us in a relaxed, matter-of-fact tone that makes him sound friendly, honest, and maybe a little less respectful than he should be. He does, after all, come close to calling Mark Twain a liar. Try to imagine Twain writing that paragraph, in which he has a fictional character accuse him of stretching the truth in an earlier book. Twain seems to be sharing a joke with you, the reader, but

Christian Prayer: A Way of Knowing What is prayer? A book titled Healing Words, written by Larry Dossey, M.D. states that “Prayer” comes from the Latin precarius, “obtained by begging”, and precari, “to entreat”—to ask earnestly, beseech, implore. This suggests two of the commonest forms of prayer—petition, asking something for one’s self, and intercession, asking something for others. There are also prayers of confession, the repentance of wrongdoing and the asking of forgiveness; lamentation,

Among those influences are the reaction of the mass media to any particular issue or candidate, the ability of that candidate to artic
