CLINICAL VIGNETTE An 18-year-old woman with medically intractable seizures An 18-year-old woman presented for evaluation of seizures that were not controlled by medical therapy. At the age of 6 months she was hospitalized with a fever and seizures, and was reported to have encephalitis. She lost motor and language developmental milestones, but these were gradually regained and she was treated for a year with phenobarbital and was without recurrent seizures. The phenobarbital was tapered at age 2 but at the age of 6 years she again experienced seizures, which occurred at low frequency until puberty, when the seizure frequency increased to two to three per day. The seizures were characterized by an initial aura of tightness in the head and chest and sweaty palms, followed by impaired consciousness, lip smacking, hand rubbing, and unresponsiveness. During a seizure she was unable to talk but could hear, and could not fully process information. She was treated with a variety of anticonvulsants, including phenobarbital, carbamazepine, phenytoin, valproate, and lamotrigine without significant success in seizure control. Her medical history was otherwise unremarkable. There was no family history of seizures. Physical Examination: Vital signs: normal. Bedside mental status examination: no significant abnormalities. Neuropsychological testing: full-scale IQ of 97, performance IQ of 97 and a verbal IQ of 96; mild difficulty acquiring certain types of information and some difficulty with uncued recall. Speech: normal. Cranial nerves: normal with only minimal, unsustained nystagmus on lateral gaze. Motor and sensory examinations: normal. Muscle stretch reflexes: normal. Coordination and gait: normal. Stop and Consider: What is the classification of her seizures according to the International Classification of Seizures? How should she be treated at this point? Laboratory Findings: CBC, serum chemistries with liver and renal functions, PT, PTT, ESR: normal. MRI: see figure, shows left hippocampal atrophy and increased T2 signal. Interictal EEG: left temporal sharp and slow wave activity suggestive of left temporal onset of seizures. Continuous video-EEG monitoring: several seizures captured. EEG, see figure, next page, shows left mesial temporal (EFO) onset. Interictal positron emission tomography (PET) scan: hypometabolism of the left temporal lobe. Diagnosis: Medically intractable partial complex seizures associated with hippocampal atrophy.

NCRD's Business Review : e-Journal, Volume 2, Issue 2 (Jan-Dec 2016) ISSN: 2455-0264 A STUDY ON YOUTH'S GREEN BUYING BEHAVIOR WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO DOMBIVLI, MUMBAI Mr. Mathew Lawrence, Ph.D Research Scholar ABSTRACT Business organizations need to contribute significantly to healthily environment through the adoption of green marketing. The activities of some of this business may result to environmental pollution which makes the environment becomes inimical to human habitation. India is still in its nascent stage of developing green and sustainable marketing strategies. In India majority population is young. Any behavioral change among youth can create a huge turnaround for any company as well as entire country. This study throws light on green marketing and its impact on youth. The research is conducted with probing questions on environmental awareness, knowledge, and perception of consumers towards green marketing and perceived barriers faced by consumers in adopting green marketing. Both primary and secondary data has been used for the research. Exploratory research was carried out; convening sampling technique has been used. Sample Size was 500 respondents from Dombivli area. Data has been analyzed using SPSS. Research findings reveal that green marketing is more effective than regular marketing. Keywords: Green Marketing, Youth, Attitude, Perception INTRODUCTION Industries around the world have started the green initiative to counter ill effects of business processes particularly transformation and consumption of products on natural environment and its inhabitants. Today citizens and policy makers across the world are focused on issues such as terrorism and economic meltdown. But at the same time environmental issues also remain high on list of concern. Green marketing research has come a long way. Consumers from the developed countries including USA and Western Europe were found to be more conscious about the environment (Curlo, 1999). Research in the last decade(Lee, 2008 2009, Rahbar and Wahid, 2011, D Souza 2004) has indicated those consumers are aware and are willing to pay more to "go green". Green marketing came into prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s; it was first discussed much earlier. The American Marketing Association (AMA) held the first workshop on "Ecological Marketing" in 1975. The proceedings of this workshop resulted in one of the first books on green marketing entitled "Ecological Marketing". According to Polonsky (1994) green or environmental marketing consists of all activities, designed to generate and facilitate any exchange intended to satisfy human needs and wants, such that the satisfaction of these needs and wants occur with minimum detrimental impact on the natural environment. LITERATURE REVIEW Green marketing is a vital constituent of the holistic marketing concept today. It is particularly applicable to those businesses that are directly dependent on the physical environment. Changes in the physical environment may pose threat to fishing, processed foods tourism and adventure sports industries. (Yasmin and Shamshuddin; 2014) There is no one single strategy that will work for all companies, it all depends on the own individual objectives, target market, resources

DEMOCRATIC PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF KOREA 2015 HUMAN RIGHTS REPORT See endnote. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK or North Korea) is an authoritarian state led by the Kim family for more than 60 years. Shortly after Kim Jong Il's death in late 2011, his son Kim Jong Un was named marshal of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army. Kim Jong Un's grandfather, the late Kim Il Sung, remains "eternal president." The most recent national elections, held in March 2014, were neither free nor fair. Authorities maintained effective control over the security forces. Citizens did not have the ability to change their government. The government subjected citizens to rigid controls over many aspects of their lives, including denial of the freedoms of speech, press, assembly, association, religion, movement, and worker rights. The government operated a network of political prison camps in which conditions were often harsh, life threatening, and included forced and compulsory labor. Defectors continued to report extrajudicial killings, disappearances, arbitrary detention, arrests of political prisoners, and torture. The judiciary was not independent and did not provide fair trials. There were reports of female victims of trafficking among refugees and workers crossing the border into China. Forced labor was practiced domestically, through mass mobilizations and as a part of the re-education system. NGOs noted that DPRK foreign contract workers also faced conditions of forced labor. The government made no known attempts to prosecute officials who committed human rights abuses. Impunity was a widespread problem. Section 1. Respect for the Integrity of the Person, Including Freedom from: a. Arbitrary or Unlawful Deprivation of Life There were numerous reports that the government committed arbitrary and unlawful killings.

The need for a collaborative relationship between theprescribing physician, school personnel, and the family is outlined. School psychologists can playcrucial roles by providing the physician with information at the time of referral, developing school-based psychosocial interventions that augment pharmacological treatment, completing periodicevaluations to assist in symptom monitoring, and alerting the family and physician to any adverseside effects.

PHARMACOLOGICAL PRINCIPLESPsychopharmacology, one of the most active and developing areas of psychiatric research, is the use of psychotropic medication to treat psychiatric disorders. Psychiatric–mental health nurse practitioners (PMHNPs) must have a thorough understanding of the science and art of prescribing—of the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic actions of a given drug, as well as the client's motivation to take the drug. The basic pharmacological principles are discussed in this chapter.
