Ron and Cornelia Suskind had two healthy young sons, promising careers, and a brand new home when their youngest son Owen started to disappear.
3 months later a specialist sat Ron and Cornelia down and said the word that changed everything for them: Autism.
In this episode, the Suskind family finds an unlikely way to access their silent son’s world. We set off to figure out what their story can tell us about Autism, a disorder with a wide spectrum of symptoms and severity. Along the way, we speak to specialists, therapists, and advocates including Simon Baron-Cohen, Barry and Raun Kaufmann, Dave Royko, Geraldine Dawson, Temple Grandin, and Gil Tippy.
O aumento de militares, religiosos, ruralistas e outros segmentos mais identificados com o conservadorismo refletem, segundo o diretor do Diap, Antônio Augusto Queiroz, esse novo status. “O novo Congresso é, seguramente, o mais conservador do período pós-1964”, afirma. “As pessoas não sabem o que fazem as instituições e se você não tem esse domínio, é trágico”, avalia.
It’s like that summer blockbuster that’s been hyped since December. You know the one, everyone’s got plans to see it, if you don’t see it something must be wrong with you, it’s going to be the best… thing… ever. And then you go see it, and it’s alright but you don’t see what all the excitement was about, you’ve seen better, shorter, faster paced movies alone. The movie wasn’t the greatest, but goddamnit if when the sequel comes out, you don’t get just as excited. And sometimes, after you’ve seen enough movies and you know what to expect, a movie will come out that lives up to the hype, has amazing visuals, and has enough twists and turns that you fall in love with cinema.
The game started seventeen years ago when two Professors from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, John Jundberg and Eddie Weitzberg, wrote a piece about gas passing through intestines, with the title “Nitric Oxide and inflammation: The answer is blowing in the wind”.
In short, Mr. Jurafsky said, authors of one-star reviews unconsciously use language much as people do in the wake of collective trauma. “They use the word ‘we’ much more than ‘I,’ as if taking solace in the fact that this bad thing happened, but it happened to us together,” he said.
"Leaving the Hunger Map is a historic milestone for Brazil. We are very proud because overcoming hunger was a priority for the Brazilian state," Social Development Minister Tereza Campello said in a statement.
O racismo no Brasil é “estrutural e institucionalizado” e “permeia todas as áreas da vida”. A conclusão é da Organização das Nações Unidas (ONU), que publicou nesta sexta-feira, 12, seu informe sobre a situação da discriminação racial no País. No documento, os peritos concluem que o “mito da democracia racial” ainda existe na sociedade brasileira e que parte substancial dela ainda “nega a existência do racismo”.
O horário eleitoral gratuito na TV é uma das peças mais importantes da disputa pela presidência. Mas até que ponto o que os candidatos dizem na propaganda é verdadeiro? O contexto correto muda a informação? Ou o que diz o candidato é simplesmente falso?
[…] None of the game’s characters show distress, and that to me was bizarre – it’s a post apocalyptic scenario, with a few remaining humans fighting for the survival of their race! To be successful, a player must be the perpetrator of extreme, and highly graphic, violence. I’m interested in a more emotionally engaged type of photography, where the human reaction to a scene is what brings a story to life. That was tough inside this game. Occasionally the characters show anger, though generally they’re nonchalant about the situation they’ve found themselves in. In the end, their emotions mimicked that of the zombies they were killing.
By the time I finished this assignment, watching the carnage had became easier.
Yet, I left the experience with a sense that by familiarizing and desensitizing ourselves to violence like this can turn us into zombies. Our lack of empathy and unwillingness to engage with those involved in tragedy stems from our comfort with the trauma those people are experiencing.
I came away from the experience having learnt a couple of things: that the work I usually do is an antidote to the type of entertainment this game represents and that I suck at video games.
So I’m a big super hero fan and love the Marvel universe, especially the character ensemble connecting through multiple films. I created this fan edit just for fun, because I wanted to watch one movie with all of Loki’s scenes combined (Thor, Avengers, Thor 2).
O Estado Islâmico cortou ontem a cabeça de mais um jornalista americano na Síria. Com a execução, o grupo iguala o número de decapitações do presídio de Cascavel, no Paraná, além de ficar a apenas uma cabeça de distância do governo do Maranhão, onde três internos do presídio de Pedrinhas tiveram suas cabeças decepadas e outros 65 foram mortos de maneiras igualmente brutais durante todo o ano de 2013. Só nos primeiros seis meses deste ano, outros 17 presos perderam a vida nas celas do Estado – 12 deles em Pedrinhas.
