Study Suggest Mindfulness Is Very Effective

Published by:

With mindfulness becoming more and more prevalent, and with many wondering how to practice mindfulness, some are still asking why mindfulness should be practiced in the first place.

There are some who have taken the ideas and principles of mindfulness and implemented them in their daily lives, who swear by its many benefits towards mental well-being, and there are some who see it as a possible and viable option, who are hampered by their lack of understanding towards how to practice mindfulness in the first place. New data from research may encourage further use of mindfulness, as a recent study has shown that mindfulness, when performed under a group therapy environment, may just be as effective as cognitive behavioral therapy.

Cognitive behavioral therapy has generally been held as an effective way of treating mental health issues, as it has been proven in assisting people with a range of notable mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, and the like. CBT helps its patients by allowing them to alter their perspective and interaction with the world via focusing on how one’s attitudes and behaviors are formed. CBT has been practiced for quite some time, and is currently the most widely used practice of its kind.

A study conducted by Swedish researchers from the Center for Primary Healthcare Research was recently published in the journal, European Psychiatry. The study tested 215 people suffering from stress-related disorders such as depression, or anxiety, and found that taking part in several mindfulness group sessions had alleviated numerous symptoms associated with the aforementioned disorders on the same level of efficiency as individual CBT treatment.

Phuket Attracting Superyachts

Published by:

The island of Phuket in Thailand was recently the venue for a yachting showcase which lasted for a month. The highlight of the event called Kata Rocks Superyachts Rendezvous has seen many extravagant private vessels that are the best in the world. It has been a tourist destination ever since when it comes to boating and it currently have a number of yacht clubs in the island and offers yacht charter in Phuket. It is currently looked upon when it comes to regional yachting because it houses the powerhouse vessels. Kata Rocks is known as a luxury resort located in the island. It sponsored a number of superyachts events but it was only December of last year when they decided to launch their major regatta which was held from December 10 to 12 of 2016.

Unfortunately, the weather was not very cooperative during the event. It is normal to see glass seas during the month of December in the top tourist island of the country thus they prestigious event by the royal family called King’s Cup Regatta is also held on the same month from the 3rd of December until the 10th. Once the Kata Rocks event was over, other events followed including the Thailand Yacht Show as well as the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous which was held on December 15 to 18.

The latest Phuket King’s Cup Regatta celebrated its 30th anniversary but it was not as lively as before because it happened a few months after the death of the beloved King of the country, Bhumibol Adulyadej who reigned for 70 years. Thailand is currently mourning and will last for a year thus any festive gala finale will not be as grand as before.

Kata was able to see a bit more life in comparison because local guests who were invited to the event were able to blend with the jetsetters or what can be referred to a yachtsetters in this case. There are a number of head beach parties hosted, excursions on the beach as well as performances for every night of the event. The superyacht event had most likely encouraged more tourists to visit the island to experience yacht charter in Phuket.

Survey Shows Scholarship Awarded Mostly To Democrat And Liberal Students

Published by:

According to Madeleine Albright, Secretary of the State, on a discussion regarding the federal program that offers the Truman Scholarship, she envisions that the future elected representatives, Cabinet members, non-profit directors and even the next president of the country will be coming from the pool of students that were given the scholarships.

If we are to study the survey that was conducted regarding the awardees in the last two years then we will be able to deduce that the leaders of tomorrow is most likely going to be a Democrat.

The College Fix gathered data for the 2015 and 2016 involving Truman scholars who have been active in their political advocacies either in a liberal organization or a Democrat group. The analysis was made after the latest announcement of the new recipients of the Truman Scholarship for 2017.

Scholarship recipients are coming from college juniors and they are given $30,000 worth of scholarship money to fund their graduate school. Along with the scholarship grant is an agreement that they will be serving the public for three years within the first seven years that they have accomplished their diploma in graduate studies.

Around 35 per cent of the scholars are considered to be doing liberal works. There are over 40 students out of the total 112 scholars, that were granted the scholarship in 2015 and 2106, who are tied to either liberal groups or Democratic politicians. Not a handful of the remaining scholars are affiliated with either conservative or Republican groups.

There are around 26 recipients in the 2015 Truman Scholars that are found to have served politicians and administrations that are Democratic, organizations that are leaning towards the liberal group or they were a part of the College Democrats before the awarding and even after the Truman Scholarship have been awarded. The Fix was only able to count two recipients who are connected in conservative or Republican groups based on their resume.

Don’t worry if you think you are not qualified for this scholarship as there are many others out there such as the Scholarships for Blue Eyes which is intended for students who have blue eyes.
