Sign language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A sign language (also signed language) is a language which chiefly uses manual communication to convey meaning, as opposed to acoustically conveyed sound patterns. This can involve simultaneously combining hand shapes, orientation and movement of the hands, arms or body, and facial expressions to express a speaker's thoughts. Sign languages share many similarities with spoken languages (sometimes called "oral languages", which depend primarily on sound), which is why linguists consider both to be natural languages. Although there are also some significant differences between signed and spoken languages, such as how they use space grammatically, sign languages show the same linguistic properties and use the same language faculty as do spoken languages.[1][2] They should not be confused with body language, which is a kind of non-linguistic communication.

Why we do what we do: Antibiotics for dog bites

For a long time when encountering a patient who had suffered a dog bite I reflexively placed the patient on antibiotics. Generally, either amoxicillin/clavulanate or clindamycin. Along the way I began to question whether or not there is evidence to support this practice, since I also haven’t seen many infected dog bites. As you may already be aware, most dog bites are from an animal known to the victim. One study from Australia noted that >4/5 were known. In children under 5 the bites are more likely to be in the head/neck (60-70%). See Patronek at al. for more. In older children and adults the extremities – more commonly the dominant hand – are involved.

Genetic link to education level real - but weak -

On the one hand, new findings published May 11 in the journal Nature simply confirm what people have long known from simple observation — that traits such as ’school smarts’ often run in families, just like red hair or excelling in sports. For neurologists and social scientists, on the other hand, discovering a genetic contribution to a person’s education level can be useful in helping better identify the various factors influencing brain development or academic success.

The Biological and Emotional Causes of Aggression

When we see so much violence around us every day, we might conclude that people have an innate tendency, or even an instinct, to be aggressive. Some well-known philosophers and psychologists have argued that this is the case. For instance, the philosopher Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) took this view, arguing that humans are naturally evil and that only society could constrain their aggressive tendencies. On the other hand, the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778) was more positive. He believed that humans are naturally gentle creatures who are aggressive only because we are taught to be so by our society. The psychologist Sigmund Freud, who lived through the disaster of World War I in which millions of his fellow human beings were massacred, argued that although people do have a “life instinct,” they also have a “death instinct”—an impulse toward destruction of themselves and others.
