Scientific Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Orientalism / Sinology - Islamic Studies, grade: keine, Ruhr-University of Bochum (Seminar für Orientalistik und Islamwissenschaft), course: Sexualität und Drogen bei den Moguln: Beispiele aus Medizin, Ethik und Historiographie, language: English, abstract: In order to address the subject “Drugs in the Mughal Empire”, it is necessary to introduce some terms and basic concepts and explain some background circumstances. First and foremost it makes sense to illustrate the definition of the term drug as such. Moreover, opium is addressed specifically and its production, mode of action and pharmacological application as well as its effect on the human body will be explained briefly. Originally the pharmacological term drug described a substance of plant or animal origin. Another classification of the term refers on the one hand to the medicinal drug and on the other hand to the narcotic drug. The term medicinal drug means dried medicinal plants or parts of these plants, as for example roots, seeds or essential oils. The formulations of these plants or plant parts (or extracts of active substances) are therefore used as remedies. In more recent times the word “drug” established itself as a term for narcotics (narcotic drugs) and addictive narcotics in general which sometimes can cause dependencies. Thus the term “drug” underwent a semantic shift, which must be taken into account, as ‘pharmaceutical drugs’ must under no circumstances be equated with ‘drugs’. Nevertheless it should be noted that certain substances whose effect was originally or is still used for medical purposes and thus are to be seen as medicinal drugs, can be used very well also as narcotic drug or toxic substance. The definition, whether this involves a remedy, a narcotic drug or a toxic substance, is rather vague and therefore determined by the intended purpose, the user or patient, the field of application and often the dosage in particular. Theophrastus Paracelsus defined the toxicity of substances as follows: All things are poison, and nothing is without poison; only the dose permits something not to be poisonous. --- Um auf das Thema „Drogen im Mogulreich“ einzugehen, sollten einleitend einige Begriffe, Grundlagen und Hintergründe erläutert werden. So ist es zu allererst sinnvoll, die Definition des Begriffs Droge als solche darzulegen. Des Weiteren wird auf Opium im speziellen eingegangen und seine Gewinnung, Wirkweise, pharmakologische Anwendung, sowie seine Auswirkung auf den Organismus kurz erläutert. Ursprünglich bezeichnete der pharmakologische Begriff Droge zu allererst einen pflanzlichen oder tierischen Stoff.

West Texas is a white hot cauldron boiling over with a lust for money and power. Trapped in the flames of passion searing the Permian Basin, KPER television news reporters Erin McCartney and Sean Ryan battle to survive while exposing the drug smuggling, political corruption and sinful scandals rocking the city of Midessa, Texas. They are caught in a deadly crossfire between the crime and the corruption and their news director Scott Sangsue who demands total obedience and unquestioning loyalty. Just how far will the men and women of KPER-TV go to save their jobs and satisfy Sangsue’s hunger to be number one? How much are they willing to sacrifice—their lives, their morals, their principles? When rookie television journalist Sean Ryan enters KPER-TV, he is swallowed by the cut-throat competition of television news. Suddenly, everything he knows and believes is being challenged by a world turned upside down. Will he succumb to the sexual temptations of Amer Chienne and Celeste? Will he be killed by the criminals or the cops in their drug war? Will he abandon his journalistic principles to save his job? In the end is he any better than Sangsue?

Aufruhr im Kopf

Author: Daniel J. Siegel
Publisher: MVG Verlag
ISBN: 9783864154256
Release Date: 2015-04-13
Genre: Self-Help

Im Alter zwischen 12 und 24 Jahren finden tief greifende Veränderungen in den Gehirnen von Jugendlichen statt. Dies äußert sich meist in einem grundlegend veränderten und scheinbar irrationalen Verhalten und bringt die Jugendlichen sowie auch ihre Eltern oft genug an den Rand des Wahnsinns. Aufruhr im Kopf erklärt die wirklichen Vorgänge in den Gehirnen der Pubertierenden und zeigt, dass es sich nicht nur um eine komplizierte, sondern vor allem um eine sehr lebendige Phase im Leben handelt, in der die Weichen für das Erwachsenendasein gestellt werden. Während dieser Zeit eignen sich die Jugendlichen wichtige Fähigkeiten an, verlassen zum ersten Mal ihr Zuhause, lernen, tief gehende Verbindungen mit anderen einzugehen und mit den komplexen Problemen der Welt um sie herum umzugehen. Anhand neuester Erkenntnisse auf dem Gebiet der Neurobiologie beschreibt Siegel auf anschauliche Weise, wie die Funktionen des Gehirns die Beziehungen Heranwachsender erfüllender gestalten und ihr Leben verbessern können – und wie damit die Zeit der Pubertät für alle Beteiligten weniger anstrengend wird. Ein Buch, das Familien nicht nur helfen wird, diese Zeit zu überleben, sondern sogar zu genießen und aus ihr zu lernen.
