Active Monitoring and the Latest Steps in Our Response to Ebola

President Obama meets with Ebola Coordinator Ron Klain and Officials

President Barack Obama holds a meeting on Ebola with Ebola Response Coordinator Ron Klain and members of his team coordinating the government’s Ebola response, in the Oval Office.

The United States continues to lead a comprehensive effort enhance our preparedness to respond to Ebola here at home, while also tackling the epidemic at its source in West Africa. From helping hospitals improve training and care to coordinating and contributing significant resources to fight the disease at its source, the Administration is working to help keep Americans safe.

Today, President Obama met with Ebola Response Coordinator Ron Klain and Administration officials to discuss the latest steps we're taking to prevent the spread of Ebola here at home. One way is through active monitoring, a procedure the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in coordination with local health authorities, is putting in place to ensure travelers from the affected countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea will report their temperature and symptoms to health officials for 21 days. The CDC will work with state and local officials of six states — New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and Georgia, which are the destinations for the majority of travelers from the three countries — to actively monitor them.

Mark Warner vs. Ed Gillespie vs. Robert Sarvis Nonpartisan Candidate Guide For Virginia Senate Race 2014

2014-10-23-VA_senate_Warner_Gillespie_Sarvis_jpeg.jpg

Are you looking for a nonpartisan voter guide to the Mark Warner vs. Ed Gillespie vs. Robert Sarvis Senate race? One that will give you an unbiased, no-spin comparison of candidate positions on key issues? That’s what our Campus Election Engagement Project guide will give you! We are a national nonpartisan initiative working with college and university administrators, faculty, and student leaders to increase student participation in America’s elections. For the 2014 elections we have created and distributed voter guides to campuses in more than 20 states so they can provide their communities with accurate information for informed voting. Because these guides have been so well received and are useful for all voting citizens who want to be better informed, we are also posting them here.

We developed our guides by analyzing information from trusted resources such as www.votesmart.org, www.ontheissues.org, www.ballotpedia.com, www.politifact.com, www.factcheck.org, www.vote411.org and from candidate websites, public debates and interviews, and statements in major media outlets. We also showed them to groups like campus Young Republicans and Young Democrats at the schools we work with to verify their fairness and lack of bias.

Your Atomic Self: The Invisible Elements That Connect You to Everything Else in the Universe (EXCERPT)

2014-10-22-YourAtomicSelfnewcover.jpg

One can only wonder how Albert Einstein might have wrestled with the still-open question of how inanimate atoms produce life. He freely acknowledged the limitations of human understanding, including his own, and in July 1945, he wrote, “We have to admire in humility the beautiful harmony of the structure of this world — as far as we can grasp it. And that is all.” Science alone can take us only so far in our efforts to grasp the world, but sometimes teaming it with the arts can carry us the rest of the way forward on that journey. As a musician, Einstein understood this, and perhaps his love of music offered him insights into how life arises from atoms in ways that are now described in terms of “emergence.”

An emergent phenomenon arises from relatively simple components that somehow become more than the sum of their parts, as random scratches become letters if they are shaped in certain ways. Letters can be grouped into words with meanings that depend upon their sequences. The letters e, l, f, and i, for example, can become “file” or “life.” Emerging from the same kind of mysterious zone wherein the arrangements of words produce literature, teeming atoms and molecules somehow become living cells. In similar fashion a thousand minnows produce an undulating shoal of silver, a million citizens make a city with a distinctive identity, billions of coral polyps produce a complex and colorful reef, and trillions of mindless cells create a colony that walks, talks, and thinks of itself as a person.

Music, in this context, is an emergent phenomenon that arises from sound waves in air, and even if it can’t completely explain the origins of life, it can help describe life while also making it more enjoyable. Einstein was an excellent violinist who particularly loved Mozart’s music, and as his fame spread he was often invited to perform with some of the world’s most accomplished musicians. Pianist Artur Balsam, when asked about the musical abilities of the revered author of relativity theory, replied, “He is relatively good.”

But Einstein’s relationship to music was more personal than professional, and although he could have owned the best of instruments, he preferred to lug an inexpensive fiddle in a battered case wherever he went. This included Camp Knollwood on Lower Saranac Lake in New York’s Adirondack mountains, where he often played alone on the veranda and also enjoyed playing duets with the concert violinist Frances Magnes, another frequent summer visitor to Knollwood. “If I were not a physicist,” Einstein once said, “I would probably be a musician…. I see my life in terms of music.”

2014-10-22-DSCN0821CROPX2.jpg

What can music reveal about the atomic nature of life? Physicists sometimes compare the oscillation patterns of orbiting electrons to standing waves in the resonant strings of musical instruments, and the vibration patterns of subatomic superstrings have been said to resemble harmonic sequences that can be played on a violin. But atoms are more difficult to define when considered in terms of quantum mechanics, and both music and life resist precise definitions as well. Biologists still argue over whether or not some animals’ vocalizations constitute song or mere noise, and even scientists who study the origins of life on Earth have no firm definition of what life itself is. Try it yourself sometime, as I do with students in my introductory biology class at Paul Smith’s College, not far from Saranac Lake.

After the students list a dozen or so features, including eating, respiring, responding to stimuli, and reproducing, I unveil a chainsaw that lay hidden behind the lecture podium. As jaws drop and laughter erupts, I pull the cord and the machine roars to “life.” Nearly every feature on the list is displayed in the consumption of fuel, the exhalation of waste gases, and the raucous responses to my trigger finger. When I “kill” the engine, someone always asks, “Wait, what about reproduction? It can’t be alive if it can’t reproduce.” And as you might guess, a fairly crude reply soon follows, along the lines of “What about a nun, then? Isn’t a nun alive?” or “What about a mule? A mule couldn’t reproduce even if it tried.”

If defining life is this difficult, no wonder we struggle so much to understand how it arises from atoms. But even if we can’t fully explain what life is, the emergence of music from vibrating molecules can help describe what life is like. Consider what might happen if you were to borrow Einstein’s violin, which is still played in concert by his great-grandson Paul, and use it to perform one of his favorite melodies, Mozart’s Sonata in E Minor, on the dock at Knollwood.

Most of the atoms of this particular instrument were also here during the 1940s, because atoms tend to persist in objects such as violins longer than they do in more transient entities such as lakes and musicians. But what exactly is the music that emerges from your fingering and bowing of the strings?

The sounds themselves are short-lived waves of air molecules striking your eardrums, and your perceptions of pitch and tone emerge from waves of neuronal ions that trigger emergent sensory and emotional responses in your brain. The melody itself, however, is a metaphysical pattern that emerges from the process of playing and, ultimately, from a lyrical thought in Mozart’s mind in 1778. The emergent phenomenon of the Sonata in E Minor outlasts any single performance or player, and it exists with or without the instruments that embody it in sound or the scribblings that transcribe it to paper.

Perhaps that is what you are most like, then: not the physical instrument of your atoms but the unique pattern that emerges like music from their interactions, an abstraction that is nonetheless real. Perhaps you are like a living melody that successive orchestras of atoms perform in the theater of your body until, sooner or later, the concert series ends. Walt Whitman suggested as much when he wrote:

I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

Like the sound of a sonata, like Mozart, Einstein, and Whitman, you too will be gone someday. But like the abstract structure of a musical composition, the space-time coordinates and emergent patterns of your life are immortal, and your atomic and subatomic components will continue to exist in many and varied forms for trillions of years until even they must melt into the silence of a dying universe. As Whitman concluded:

I depart as air, I shake my white locks at the runaway sun,
I effuse my flesh in eddies, and drift it in lacy jags.
I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love,
If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.

In the meantime, welcome to your atomic self. Hydrogen has become you after billions of years of stellar fusion and countless dances of atoms in air, water, earth, and fire on this planetary vessel of ours. As you finish the rest of the story of your life, may you share your matter and energy ever more wisely and well with the universe.

Now take another breath, if you please, not only because you must but, wonder of wonders, because you can.

25 Things Ann Landers Could Have Learned From My Mother

I was 11 when my mom and stepdad got married. Both parents had three kids, so the marriage instantly turned us into a large, boisterous family trying to learn to live together and share everything, with each child constantly jockeying for position and attention from the clearly exhausted and constantly outflanked new stepparents from either side.

My stepdad was a doctor, so he sought refuge at his clinic and the local hospital, where he could be in charge with no questions asked (this was in the late 60s, when doctors told God what to do). Mom stayed home with the kids. Within the next couple of years, five out of the six were teenagers. All at the same time. There was a reason 5 p.m. was referred to as “Attitude Adjustment Hour” at our house.

My mother quickly developed a parenting style that was pithy, blunt and on-the-fly. She had no time for silliness like drawn-out negotiating or soul-searching chats with her offspring, biological or otherwise. Mom would drop tidbits of wisdom like bread crumbs, and if we were smart, we’d listen. If we were really smart, we’d learn.

Like many women, after raising my own child and then being handed darling, dimpled grandchildren to help guide along life’s journey, I find myself repeating maternal admonitions recalled from my youth. The older I get, the smarter she was. So today is dedicated to my mother, and her 25 Most Memorable Mom-isms.

1. You have to suffer to be beautiful. (As a child, this was usually offered up when she was yanking the snarls out of my hair. In later years, it included high heels and Botox.)

2. If you’re fighting with someone you care about, be the first to say “I’m sorry.” You don’t have to mean it. You just have to say it. (Well, somebody has to go first.)

3. It’s time to diet when you’re wider from the side view than from the front. (Weirdly accurate. It’s better than a scale. Go look. We’ll wait.)

4. The only way two people can keep a secret is if one of them is dead. (We thought she invented “I’d tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.” To this day, you can’t coax, bribe, or threaten a secret out of any of us.)

5. The best way to avoid falling in love with a poor man is not to date one. (Mom was nothing if not practical.)

6. If you kiss a boy, he’ll want to “do it” and you’ll get pregnant. (Granted, we were very young, but for years my sisters and I thought kissing made you pregnant. Mom’s work was done.)

7. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. For someone else. (By the time we were all in college, this became “Absence makes the heart realize it doesn’t miss your absent ass.”)

8. Don’t confuse the wedding with the marriage. (Mama Kardashian might have done better by her daughters if she’d passed this one down.)

9. A woman rarely regrets not sleeping with a man. The same can’t be said of the opposite. (In our younger days, it was a more direct “Keep your knees together and your feet on the floor.” That worked, too.)

10. You can learn a lot about a man by how he treats his dog. (Mom nailed this one. It’s true. Every. Time.)

11. Marriages are like pancakes. You screw the first one up. (With six kids and 14 marriages between us, we might have taken this one a bit too literally. Don’t judge.)

12. Don’t buy a car you haven’t driven or marry a man you haven’t slept with. They’re both hard to return. (I was in my 20s by this time. And it was the 80s.)

13. Frankly Scarlett, you’re not that important. (Instantly squashing all wails of “Everybody will be looking at me!” when we got a zit on prom night.)

14. You can’t be the bride at every wedding or the corpse at every funeral. (We learned “It’s not always about you” very early. Nice job, Mom.)

15. If he says he’s not good enough for you, he’s right. (“You’re too good for me” became the relationship kiss of death with the girls in my family. See ya’, buddy.)

16. Fred was good, but Ginger did it all backwards. In stilettos. Be Ginger. (Did I mention that Mom was a rebel?)

17. Never be a mistress. You’ll either get dumped or become his wife, in which case, he’ll get a new mistress. (Usually emphasized with a finger shake and “You following me here?”)

18. Promiscuous men are studs. Promiscuous women are tramps. Men don’t marry tramps. They may sleep with them, but they don’t marry them. (Self-explanatory, and undisputed.)

19. Life is not fair. Deal with it. (See #18)

20. At a certain age, a woman has to choose between her ass and her face. Skinny older women look even older. And they’re cranky. Eat. (Bless you, Mom.)

21. Don’t smoke. But if you must, do so only when seated. Women who walk while smoking look trashy. (Surprisingly true. Check it out next time you’re in a mall.)

22. Never do anything for a man when you’re dating that you don’t want to do when you’re married. It sets an ugly precedent. (So to all the boyfriends I never cooked for, blame Mom.)

23. Assume every photo of you will be seen by me, your dad, your minister, your boss and your future children. (All aspirations of becoming Porn Star Patti in college instantly vaporized. Go, Mom.)

24. Never bet on a horse with a bad track record. (Usually accompanied by a stern look and an admonition, “If he lies and cheats on you, he’s a creep. But if you let him, you’re an idiot. I didn’t raise idiots.”)

Meet the U.S. Military Team That’s Poised to Help Respond to Ebola in the U.S.

The Department of Defense (DOD), at the request of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), announced this weekend that U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) is providing a 30-person medical support team to quickly, effectively, and safely respond in the event of additional Ebola cases in the United States.

USNORTHCOM is the military's geographic command responsible for homeland defense, civil support, and security cooperation. It is prepared to support this request and be part of a multi-disciplinary team that, if directed, will give our nation another layer of support providing the highest quality and safest care in responding to any future Ebola cases in the homeland. 

This team is a deliberate infusion of some of the best medical personnel across all of our nation's military services. They will stand ready to help civilian medical professionals develop additional capabilities. Following infectious disease protocols and properly using personal protective equipment is essential to success. This DOD team will be prepared to help civilian agencies quickly develop the expertise that will keep their staff safe and prevent the spread of disease.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded.

21 U.S. Cities Outlawed Feeding The Hungry Due To ‘Myths’ About Homelessness: Report

Ignorance regarding the root causes of homelessness have led many communities across the U.S. to restrict food-sharing around town, a new report claims.

In all, 31 American cities have tried various methods of discouraging or prohibiting individuals or organizations from sharing food with their homeless populations since January 2013, according to a survey released on Monday by the National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH). Of those cities, 21 have been successful through legislative measures, such as restricting the use of public property and implementing stringent food safety regulations that affect some organizations’ abilities to feed the hungry.

The report points to several “myths” that seemingly justify such restrictions — namely, the idea that feeding the homeless enables them to continue living at the bottom of the economic ladder.

According to the NCH’s report:

Individuals do not remain homeless because of food-sharing programs; people remain homeless for reasons such as: lack of affordable housing, lack of job opportunity, mental health or physical disability. With all of the existing barriers that prevent individuals from finding work, earning an adequate wage, affording a safe home and caring for themselves, remaining homeless is rarely a choice at all.

Some advocates argue restricting food-sharing opportunities goes hand-in-hand with a growing trend of anti-homeless laws sweeping the U.S., such as bans on sleeping on public property or begging on sidewalks.

“If the biggest crimes we had to worry about in this country were sitting, sleeping (in public places) and eating and sharing food, we would be in a freaking good state,” Paul Boden, director of the Western Regional Advocacy Project, told Al Jazeera. The Western Regional Advocacy Project is responsible for launching the Homeless Bill of Rights campaign — an effort to introduce laws in California and Oregon protecting homeless individuals from targeted discrimination.

The report by the NCH pointed out that communities across the country have passed restrictive policies regarding food-sharing, with Florida and California leading the U.S.

But not all findings in the report were negative. The NCH noted successful collaborations between cities and service providers, as well, including one in St. Augustine, Florida between faith-based groups and the local government that allows between 60 and 100 people in need to be fed every evening.

Why This Doctor Believes That Ebola Will Not Be an American Catastrophe

“Ebola is going to take over the country, right?”

These days, folks who know me as an infectious-diseases specialist kickstart conversations with a similar question and then ask, “Should I buy a gas mask and a space suit?”

Calm down, people! Yes, Ebola is devastating, and it may continue to gnaw at Africa and the developing world, but it won’t turn into an American catastrophe. Let me explain why I believe we will win this battle.

Having managed the outbreaks of SARS in 2003, swine flu in 2009 and fungal meningitis in 2012, many of us in the infectious-diseases community have been there, done that. Each time, the talking heads with zero experience with infections diseases increased the size of the haystack by piling up “What if?” scenarios like they are doing now: What if the virus mutates and becomes airborne? (Viruses don’t change their mode of transmission due to mutations.) What if one patient infected a whole airplane? (That would only be possible if such a patient were running a fever and vomiting or defecating all over the plane.) What if an exposed child spreads the infection to his or her entire whole school? (Thank you; this ridiculous fear has already forced school closures in Ohio and Texas.) And so on….

Listen, don’t listen to such hysteria. Ask the experts and stick to the facts.

The fact is this: The virus spreads through bodily fluids and physical touch. Unlike measles, which is an airborne disease that can be spread to others up to four days prior to the onset of rash, Ebola is not airborne and only spreads after the infected person develops symptoms. That’s why, despite the CDC’s prediction of 1.4 million cases worldwide by mid-January 2015, I believe the number of Americans who contract Ebola will not exceed the double digits.

I also believe that well over 50 percent of American Ebola patients will survive — in contrast with the 10- to 30-percent survival rate in Africa. Our access to supportive measures like ventilators, blood transfusions, and dialysis will account for the difference. At the time of this writing, eight Americans have been diagnosed with Ebola; of those eight, one died, three recovered, and four are in treatment.

Loss of life is never trivial. I get that. But let’s not lose perspective. A century ago, over 600,000 Americans died during the Spanish flu outbreak. Annually, an average of 30,000 Americans die from seasonal influenza. So do me a favor: If you are worried about Ebola, get a flu shot.

We in the medical community are learning our lesson from the missteps at the Dallas hospital where two nurses contracted the virus. That’s partly why the idea of establishing regional Ebola centers is gaining momentum. What it means is that Ebola patients will be transferred to large regional hospitals with a lean team of professionals adept at and equipped for managing such patients. In fact, New York City’s Bellevue Hospital was just declared to be such a center for New York City.

If you are still skeptical, then take comfort in this: Nigeria and Senegal, with rampant corruption and limited resources, were just declared Ebola-free. We can do it too.

Here is the downside to this media frenzy: The more people panic, the more risk-averse they become. And then a potential medical catastrophe quickly turns into a real economic disaster: Travel declines, trade suffers, schools close, and markets crash. On Oct. 15, as news of a second nurse in Dallas testing positive for Ebola spread, the Dow Jones lost 460 points, wiping out all the gains of 2014. And don’t forget the number $ 37 billion: It’s the annual financial impact of seasonal influenza in the U.S.

As Ebola becomes old news in the coming weeks and months, it will leave us with familiar lessons: that a virus so brutally indiscriminate teaches mankind to collaborate, not compete; that when scientists share data and countries pool resources, heroic goals are achieved; that in the end, with meticulous contact tracing and proper use of masks, gloves, and gowns, we win.

And that’s when life will return to its conceited reality, where we humans inflict far more harm on each other than any virus inflicts on us.

The Far Side of Eden: New Money, Old Land, and the Battle for Napa Valley

The Far Side of Eden: New Money, Old Land, and the Battle for Napa Valley


James Conaway picks up the story begun a decade ago in his earlier book about Napa Valley, the premier American wine country and a place synonymous with the good life. By now the struggle over the valley’s future has grown sharper and its success more glaring. Awash in dollars generated by the boom economy of the 1990s and the social ambitions it inspired, Napa is beset by too much of a good thing: new arrivals determined to have a vineyard of their own despite the fact that available land is running out, cult-wine producers in thrall to fabulously expensive "rocket juice" (cabernet sauvignon) that few locals can afford, established families wishing to hold on to the old ways, and camp followers caught up in the glamour of it all. What has transformed a natural and agricultural beauty spot into a coveted global destination has left inevitable scars, and a small, impassioned band of environmentalists determine to resist further change. Alarmed by the wholesale felling of trees to make way for vines, the diminishment of the Napa River, and the decline in the health of the watershed, they strike back in a way rivets the valley and strongly divides the valley between those in favor of unbridled economic development and those insisting on limits. Written by the author the New York Times credits with "a Saroyan-like sense of humor and and Balzac-like eye for detail," The Far Side of Eden takes us to the frontlines of America’s ongoing conflicts about money, land, and power to tell a tale that has ramifications for us all.

My partner, Ari Weinzweig, and I never subscribed to the conservative economic theory of Milton Friedman, that “the business of business is business.” To us, the right to conduct business is earned by being a good corporate citizen — by producing products and delivering services responsibly, hiring responsibly, generating profits responsibly, and finally, sharing profits with those who help produce them and with the wider community from which the revenues are drawn.

Bill O’Reilly Makes Fun Of Karl Rove’s Prediction Skills

Bill O’Reilly had a little fun at Karl Rove‘s expense on Monday night.

While appearing on “The O’Reilly Factor” from Las Vegas, Rove whipped out his whiteboard to drive home some points about the upcoming midterm election.

When the political strategist finished, O’Reilly warned him not to bring the whiteboard into the casinos.

“I don’t gamble,” Rove said.

“With your prediction record, that’s a wise move,” O’Reilly cracked.

“Y’know that was personal and petty,” Rove said. “That was personal and petty.”

“That’s me,” said O’Reilly. “P and P.”

Back in 2012, after predicting a Mitt Romney win in the presidential election, Rove threw a fit on live television when Fox News called Ohio for President Barack Obama.

Fox was right and Rove was wrong, and the following spring he was still bristling over it.

It’s not clear whether Rove was joking with O’Reilly or genuinely stung by the re-opened wound. But between the two of them, only one was laughing… and it wasn’t Rove.

These 11 Photos Capture The Strength Of Ebola Survivors

The Ebola epidemic has claimed over 2,400 lives in Liberia alone, a harrowing number that accounts for more than half of the outbreak’s total death toll according to the CDC. The New England Journal of Medicine estimates the current outbreak has a 70 percent mortality rate — but what of the 30 percent who survive?

Getty Images photographer John Moore visited treatment centers in Liberia to document Ebola survivors and their stories, giving names and faces to the horrifying epidemic. The series is a powerful testament to both the strength of the survivors, and the fact that their troubles don’t necessarily end once they’ve recovered.

the survivors john moore

Mohammed Bah, a survivor, stands in a Doctors Without Borders treatment center.

“I’ve been rejected by everyone. I’m alone with my two children,” survivor Mohammed Bah told Moore. Despite his clean bill of health — Ebola survivors in Liberia are issued an actual certificate confirming their recovery – his community has refused to accept him back.

But survivors of Ebola may actually be key to fighting future outbreaks, not vessels for further spread. They are believed to be immune to the strain of the virus that first infected them, meaning they can nurse Ebola patients without worry of infection. Their blood, filled with antibodies, is being considered for tests for potential treatments for the disease.

Several of Moore’s subjects are currently working in the treatment centers, sharing the strength that made their recuperation possible and caring for patients still sick. Others, like Sontay Massaley, were photographed on their way out the door, celebrating their recovery and release.

Finding a Middle Ground Between Psychiatry and Anti-Psychiatry

There will never be any compromise acceptable to the die-hard defenders of psychiatry or to its most fanatic critics.

Some inflexible psychiatrists are blind biological reductionists who assume that genes are destiny and that there is a pill for every problem.

Some inflexible anti-psychiatrists are blind ideologues who see only the limits and harms of mental-health treatment, not its necessity or any of its benefits.

I have spent a good deal of frustrating time trying to open the minds of extremists at both ends — rarely making much headway.

Fortunately, though, there are many reasonable people in both camps who may differ markedly in their overall assessment of psychiatry but still can agree that it is certainly not all good or all bad. With open-mindedness as a starting point, common ground can usually be found; seemingly divergent abstract opinions are not so divergent when you discuss how to deal with practical problems.

And finding common ground has never been more important. We simply can’t afford a civil war among the various advocates of the mentally ill at a time when strong and united advocacy is so desperately needed.

Mental-health services in the U.S. are a failed mess: underfunded, disorganized, inaccessible, misallocated, dispirited, and driven by commercial interest. The current nonsystem is a shameful disgrace that won’t change unless the various voices who care about the mentally ill can achieve greater harmony.

Here is the cruel paradox: Those who need help can’t get it. We have half a million severely ill patients in prison for nuisance crimes that easily could have been avoided had they received adequate treatment and housing. Sleeping on a stoop, stealing a Coke, or shouting on a street can get the person arrested. Once arrested, not being able to make bail and/or not fitting in well with jail routine leads to prolonged incarceration and, too frequently, crazy-making solitary confinement. The U.S. today is probably the worst place and worst time ever to suffer from a severe mental illness.

Meanwhile, those who don’t need psychiatric medicine get far too much: We spend $ 50 billion a year on often-unnecessary and potentially dangerous pills peddled by Big Pharma drug pushers, prescribed by careless doctors, and sought by patients brainwashed by advertising. There are now more deaths in the U.S. from drug overdoses than from car accidents, and most of these come from prescription pills, not street drugs.

The mess is deeply entrenched because 1) there are few and fairly powerless advocates for the most disadvantaged; 2) the commercial interests are rich and powerful, control the airwaves and the politicians, and profit from the status quo; and 3) the mental-health community is riven by a longstanding civil war that distracts from a unified advocacy for the severely ill.

The first two factors won’t change easily. Leverage in this David-vs.-Goliath struggle is possible only if we can find a middle ground for unified advocacy.

I think reasonable people can readily agree on four fairly obvious common goals:

  1. We need to work for the freedom of those who have been inappropriately imprisoned.
  2. We need to provide adequate housing to reduce the risks and indignities of homelessness.
  3. We need to provide medication for those who really need it and avoid medicating those who don’t.
  4. We need to provide adequate and easily accessible psychosocial support and treatment in the community.

The arguments occur over the extent to which medication and coercion are necessary, and over who should get how much funding to provide what type of psychosocial support to which people.

We can all agree that too much medicine is being prescribed by the wrong people to the wrong people and for the wrong indications. Eighty percent of all psychiatric medicine is prescribed by primary-care doctors after very brief visits that are primed for overprescribing by misleading drug-company advertising. Many psychiatrists also tend to err by being too quick to write prescriptions. Anti-psychiatrists err in the other direction, thinking that because they have personally done better without meds, no one needs them.

I think reasonable people can agree that we need to reeducate doctors and the public that medications have harms, not just benefits, and should be reserved only for narrow indications when they are really necessary. It is ludicrous that 20 percent of our population takes a psychoactive pill every day, and it is equally ludicrous that anyone should be sent to jail for symptoms that would have responded to medication if the waiting time for an appointment had been one day, not two months.

Coercion is an even more contentious topic, but one that also has a common-sense common ground. When, more than 50 years ago, Tom Szasz began to fight for patient empowerment, freedom, and dignity, the main threat to these was a snake-pit state hospital system that warehoused more than 600,000 patients, usually involuntarily and often inappropriately. That system no longer exists. There are now only about 65,000 psychiatric beds in the entire country, and the problem is finding a way into the hospital, not finding a way out.

Anti-psychiatrists are fighting the last war. Psychiatric coercion has become largely a paper tiger: rare, short-term, and usually a well-meaning attempt to help the person avoid the real modern-day coercive threat of imprisonment. Decriminalizing mental illness and deprisoning the mentally ill should be an appealing common banner. And when you discuss specific situations, there is much more common-sense, common-ground agreement about when psychiatric coercion makes sense than when you discuss this hot-button issue in the abstract.

Finally, there is the inevitable competition for scarce resources that causes conflict between professionally run mental-health programs and those based on recovery. The fight for slices of the pie gets particularly fierce when the pie is far too small to start with and is forever shrinking.

The common ground here is recognition of the fact that one size does not fit all. We need all sorts of different psychosocial support systems, because different people have different needs and tastes. We should be joining together to grow a bigger pie, not fighting for slightly bigger slices of a shrinking one.

Rome is burning, and no one seems to be doing much about it. The ivory-tower institutions (like the professional associations and the National Institute of Mental Health) and the more grassroots organizations need to put aside differences and focus common advocacy on two goals that all can share: helping our most disadvantaged regain freedom and dignity, and taming the rampant and careless overuse of medication.

Allen Frances is a professor emeritus at Duke University and was the chairman of the DSM-IV task force.

The Jew Store

The Jew Store


For a real bargain, while you''re making a living, you should make also a life.–Aaron Bronson. In 1920, in small town America, the ubiquitous dry goods store–suits and coats, shoes and hats, work clothes and school clothes, yard goods and notions–was usually owned by Jews and often referred to as the Jew store. That''s how Stella Suberman''s father''s store, Bronson''s Low-Priced Store, in Concordia, Tennessee, was known locally. The Bronsons were the first Jews to ever live in that tiny town (1920 population: 5,318) of one main street, one bank, one drugstore, one picture show, one feed and seed, one hardware, one barber shop, one beauty parlor, one blacksmith, and many Christian churches. Aaron Bronson moved his family all the way from New York City to that remote corner of northwest Tennessee to prove himself a born salesman–and much more. Told by Aaron''s youngest child, THE JEW STORE is that rare thing–an intimate family story that sheds new light on a piece of American history. Here is ONE MAN''S FAMILY with a twist–a Jew, born into poverty in prerevolutionary Russia and orphaned from birth, finds his way to America, finds a trade, finds a wife, and sets out to find his fortune in a place where Jews are unwelcome. With a novelist''s sense of scene, suspense, and above all, characterization, Stella Suberman turns the clock back to a time when rural America was more peaceful but no less prejudiced, when educated liberals were suspect, and when the Klan was threatening to outsiders. In that setting, she brings to life her remarkable father, a man whose own brand of success proves that intelligence, empathy, liberality, and decency can build a home anywhere. THE JEW STORE is a heartwarming–even inspiring–story.

The Grey Islands

The Grey Islands


Since its first publication in 1985, The Grey Islands has become a classic of Canadian wilderness writing to set beside the works of Thoreau, Annie Dillard and Aldo Leopold. Using a broad range of forms and styles – lyric, anecdote, field notes, documents and pseudo-documents, ghost story, tall tale – Steffler relates the story of one man’s pilgrimage to a remote island of Newfoundland’s northern peninsula. Often comic, and always deeply passionate and sensuous, The Grey Islands tells of the sharpening of perceptions whetted by solitude, wind and rock, and of the pilgrim’s people – living and dead – who have striven to exist under its harsh regime. As in his other books, like That Night We Were Ravenous or his acclaimed novel The Afterlife of George Cartwright, Steffler’s writing delivers the bite of raw experience and embraces existence at the edge in all its terror and beauty.

The Hidden Life of Deer

The Hidden Life of Deer


The animal kingdom operates by ancient rules, and the deer in our woods and backyards can teach us many of them-but only if we take the time to notice. In the fall of 2007 in southern New Hampshire, the acorn crop failed and the animals who depended on it faced starvation. Elizabeth Marshall Thomas began leaving food in small piles around her farmhouse. Soon she had over thirty deer coming to her fields, and her naturalist’s eye was riveted. How did they know when to come, all together, and why did they sometimes cooperate, sometimes compete? Throughout the next twelve months she observed the local deer families as they fought through a rough winter; bred fawns in the spring; fended off coyotes, a bobcat, a bear, and plenty of hunters; and made it to the next fall when the acorn crop was back to normal. As she hiked through her woods, spotting tree rubbings, deer beds, and deer yards, she discovered a vast hidden world. Deer families are run by their mothers. Local families arrange into a hierarchy. They adopt orphans; they occasionally reject a child; they use complex warnings to signal danger; they mark their territories; they master local microclimates to choose their beds; they send countless coded messages that we can read, if only we know what to look for. Just as she did in her beloved books The Hidden Life of Dogs and Tribe of Tiger, Thomas describes a network of rules that have allowed earth’s species to coexist for millions of years. Most of us have lost touch with these rules, yet they are a deep part of us, from our ancient evolutionary past. The Hidden Life of Deer is a narrative masterpiece and a naturalist’s delight.
