Many patients will find after a course of treatment that they are ready to stop taking ZoloftÂ® (sertraline HCl), or that Zoloft may be contraindicated for a new medication. What follows is a list of common side effects of Zoloft withdrawal in their usual order of appearance over time, to allow doctors and their patients to be aware of the implications.
And now let us bring Sex Offender Week to a close. Did you enjoy talking about manhood and TV and the music and the bros? Well, don't run off yet, here is one parting thought on the matter of contemporary gender relations!
"The last few decades have left us so profoundly disoriented about the most urgent personal matters–gender roles, sexual norms, the possibility of creating lasting romantic relationships, not to mention absolutely everything to do with family structure–that it's no surprise to find people embracing a theory that promises to restore order." -William Deresiewicz, "Adaptation: On Literary Darwinism," The Nation, May [...]
Noise? Or signal? Only time will tell! On crashed Air France flight 447, "two names on the passenger list are also on highly-classified documents listing the names of radical Muslims considered a threat to the French Republic." Now, statistically speaking, surely at least a few people were on some government's list for something….
Have you experienced the horror that is the film Babies? Maybe you shouldn't, writes Christine Smallwood: "Breasts are everywhere, hovering like an overwhelming weather pattern. A crisis erupts when one child won't suck. The mother responds by grasping her nipple and dribbling milk all over the baby's face. There is no escape, for the baby or for us; the camera is in extreme close-up, the entire screen filled by nipple, face, milk…. The film functions like a bizarre visual seminar in object relations theory. The mothers, alas, never emerge as whole persons."
I've always wondered what it's like to have what they call White Pride. I mean, I understand people who like the Gay Pride, and the Black Pride and the East Asian Pride, and so when I think about it casually the White Pride doesn't sound so crazy? Though I always get hung up on what is the "white," since you know: were you white 100 years ago, Irish person, for instance? And the whole way "pride" veers into "supremacy" is more than a little troubling (less so when it is coming from the gays, because, ha, not so scared of them). So it is, yes, upsetting that US Soldiers [...]
New unemployment numbers this morning saw 637,000 new initial jobless claims last week. The number of people collecting unemployment nationally is now at 6.56 million. Disturbing: the number of those who are "long-term" unemployed (perhaps briefly) surpassed the number of short-term unemployed. These numbers do not include those of us who are working part-time, or have given up on filing for unemployment. But what does the jobs and income situation look like in context of the last twenty years? The last twenty years of employment, through April 1, 2009, expressed as percent change year-to-year.
Hungary's incoming prime minister, Viktor Orban, went on a little victory lap and ended up in Ord, where a third of the population is Roma. (Orban, as you well know, is the Fidesz guy; the formerly youth-driven fairy-liberal democrat party swung the other way some time ago, and the conservative group has 263 of the 386 seats in the new parliament. Also, the Jobbik party, which can safely be described as "nationalist," now has 47.) So what's the problem in Hungary? Mostly GYPSY CRIME.
"The Guardian Council, one of Iran's top oversight bodies, said Thursday it would invite the country's three unsuccessful presidential challengers to a meeting to discuss the contested weekend elections." Uh oh. You can imagine how that "meeting" ends. (The Council is calling the meeting "extra-ordinary." Yikes.) Let's hope they meet in a room with a drain in the floor. Also because: "At the same time, security agents rounded up three more prominent figures affiliated with Mr. Mousavi."
