re: Teachers not rounding final grades at LSU - emmanuellewis
[quote]This site never ceases to amaze me... I regularly see people on TD bitch and complain about those who feel as if they are entitled. Now, the majority of posters in this thread are upset with professors who are appropriately evaluating the performance of their students? [/quote] It really i...

re: Boston area OTers, I need neighborhood/town advice - emmanuellewis
[quote]The school I'll be working for offers 50 percent off monthly MTA passes. So I'll likely be leaning heavily on the T for my commute.[/quote] Then definitely use the MBTA website and google maps heavily for planning. That is extremely helpful for planning how you can get around. The bus syst...

re: Boston area OTers, I need neighborhood/town advice - emmanuellewis
I would second Somerville if you need to be North of the city. You can find places within your listed budget there. I'm not as familiar with the rates in Charlestown but it seems like you've got some people here that are. There is a T stop there next to Bunker Hill CC but they're more spread out tha...

Oddly, Dykstra didn't seem that drunk to me. That basically seems like who he is. Williams was obviously slurring. ...

re: The ADHD Fallacy: It’s Time To Stop Treating Childhood as a Disease - emmanuellewis
[quote]go hang around college campuses during finals and try to tell me this bullshite[/quote] This has little to do with my point. Just because stimulants are abused during finals week (which many people are aware) does not make them a magic potion that creates academic success--as you argued. Ag...

[quote]no i' saying there are rare, extreme examples that require medication.[/quote] I don't think this statement is based in fact. [quote]i also think that if speed is available to one, it should be available to all. you'll see the massive drop in diagnoses, confirming the above.[/quote] ...

Whoops, missed this one. [quote]no i clearly said that if some kids are allowed speed, then all kids should be allowed access to speed if you give the parents access to what they really want (speed), then we won't even have to deal with the fake diagnoses you'll see a return to a much clo...

re: The ADHD Fallacy: It’s Time To Stop Treating Childhood as a Disease - emmanuellewis
[quote]i didn't say that i was, but if it can be done, then it can be done[/quote] Not that simple. And you are basically contradicting yourself and saying here "I didn't say that I was, but we should apply what worked for me to everyone." [quote] understand this. i often wonder just how amaz...

re: The ADHD Fallacy: It’s Time To Stop Treating Childhood as a Disease - emmanuellewis
[quote]over-diagnosing does exactly this we have a desire to medicate...in this instance, medicate male characteristics out of society. activeness and aggression are bad (tools of the patriarchy and what not), so male children are being over-diagnosed with a disease they don't have. i'm not ...

[quote]i did. with both.[/quote] Its great that it worked for you, but you are not the entire population with these disorders. A diagnosis is a collection of traits; expression of these traits vary from case to case. Just because it worked for you does not mean it works for everyone with these di...

re: The ADHD Fallacy: It’s Time To Stop Treating Childhood as a Disease - emmanuellewis
[quote]and this is my meta-social worry. male characteristics are being medicated and socialized out of society[/quote] This is also tangential to ADHD diagnoses. Hyperactive kids are easier to spot and diagnose. Inattentive kids often suffer silently (people communicating that they should be try...

[quote]your post basically says to deny/ignore the underlying issue [/quote] In no way did it state that. While I agree that what you followed with is one strategy to treating depression, it is a simplified version. It is not just "working around the issue" with depression or ADHD in most cases. ...

re: ‘If you're so sensitive, leave': Am. Indian actors told to exit Adam Sandler com - emmanuellewis
[quote]People who hate Adam sander are pretentious douche bags. He makes fun movies (and as time goes by family movies) where he gets to go on vacation and hang out with his friends and crack jokes along the way. He doesn't make Oscar films and doesn't try. The previews show exactly what you are get...

[quote]Why do you think the overwhelming majority of cases are young males?[/quote] Its not an "overwhelming" majority (more like 2 to 1) but the reason it is more commonly diagnosed in males is because they are more likely to have the hyperactive than inattentive type. The inattentive type is mo...

[quote]There are ways to deal with what's going on in your mind, you just have to try.
