Pediatrics Conference 2019 is focused on the theme “Pediatrics, Child Health and Development: Hope for our Future.”
Our main aim is to provide a common stage to all the researchers, delegates and students to take part in this upcoming Pediatrics Conference to experience scientific discussions, express their ideas and gain knowledge in the field of pediatrics and child care like general pediatrics, pediatric cardiology, pediatric neurology, pediatric nephrology, pediatric emergency and critical care, pediatric rheumatology, pediatric endocrinology, pediatric pulmonary medicine, and etc.
Have you ever been around someone and immediately felt uncomfortable? Almost as if they could see right through you? But then, within minutes, the person has disarmed you and despite the initial feeling of discomfort, you engage with them. Bit by bit they seem to know exactly what needs to be said or done to tear your wall down. So, you let them in, telling yourself that there is nothing wrong. Dangerous people have this ability. They are talented at linking themselves to people who have money, power, or influence. This is done to further hide their treacherousness. So, when you meet them, they seem healthy and enticing, but it is a trap and one that could cost you your sanity or life. Here are nine patterns of a dangerous person. Align and Isolate. The dangerous person aligns themselves with your friends and family who are your people. Then they share with their new acquaintances a ‘concern’ about you in an effort to ‘help you’. This is usually done in secret so as not to ‘hurt you
Healthy development in the early years (particularly birth to three) provides the building blocks for educational achievement, economic productivity, responsible citizenship, lifelong health, strong communities, and successful parenting of the next generation. What can we do during this incredibly important period to ensure that children have a strong foundation for future development? The Center on …
The basic architecture of the brain is constructed through an ongoing process that begins before birth and continues into adulthood. Early experiences affect the quality of that architecture by establishing either a sturdy or a fragile foundation for all of the learning, health and behavior that follow. In the first few years of life, more than 1 million new neural connections are formed every second. After this period of rapid proliferation, connections are reduced through a process called pruning, so that brain circuits become more efficient. Sensory pathways like those for basic vision and hearing are the first to develop, followed by early language skills and higher cognitive functions. Connections proliferate and prune in a prescribed order, with later, more complex brain circuits built upon earlier, simpler circuits.

When my wife Kat and I split up, we needed help and support. We still used to go to the movies as a family or down to the beach at Margs after we separated. But it was a really difficult and vulnerable time and what we needed was a strong system of counselling, coaching, mediation and community support. What we got instead was lawyers and a frightening, unaffordable family court system. The moment Kat and her parents got a lawyer involved, everything changed. It was the lawyer system that drove events in our family and the terrible financial cost and long timescale of the family court made it so much more stressful for Kat’s family.” My own experience for over 7 years and a huge emotionsl and financial cost.
Thank you Nick for this brilliant article, spot on
The Ozzy headlines that hit harder are about: deaths. Yes deaths. What can we learn about campaigning from one approach based in Australia that includes a revolutionary view: Family law doesn’t help. It harms the separated families who turn to it. It can even be fatal. Alternatives must be promoted.
If a hard-hitting headline and new rationale helps improve the system, then the wider benefit of the approach would be to prevent all kinds of harm to all separating families and children, not just the fatalities. They would all get reliable help instead.

What we needed and what we got
Family separation is mostly hard, often quite nasty, and in various ways it is fatal – fatal to loving relationships, fatal to lives too. General patterns are important to study and mull over. But sometimes a single event, a shocking news story, breaks through…
In terms of using your physical brain, mindfulness asks that you deliberately shift control of your thoughts and actions from your limbic system — the ancient, instinctual “reptilian” brain — to the conscious awareness of your frontal lobe. The frontal lobe of your brain is essentially your “humanness.” It is why we humans have the big foreheads that protrude out and our primate cousins don’t.
The very front part of the frontal lobe, the prefrontal cortex (PFC), has evolved to function beyond the basic bodily and survival concerns of the brainstem and beyond the emotional concerns of the limbic system. Your higher mental processes take place in the PFC. In this prefrontal realm, your brain creates complex concepts, such as time, your sense of self, and moral judgments. This is also where mindfulness happens in your brain. Continue reading “What Mindfulness Looks Like in Your Brain”→
Mindfulness meditation has a protective effect in remitted recurrently depressed patients. ► Anterior EEG alpha asymmetry is associated with depressive vulnerability and motivation. ► Meditation has a state-effect on alpha asymmetry, yielding an adaptive, approach-related pattern.
