Use your resources and Use them again

By wlchrist Source: www.cdc.gov Recycling helps the environment by reducing the amount of virgin material extracted from the earth and by decreasing the amount of energy used to process and manufacture new products. A variety of materials can be recycled, including paper, common plastics, glass, building materials, and even polystyrene foam. Food and organic waste are also valuable recyclable resources that can be turned into fertile organic soil additives through composting. Taking time to recognize future life left in the materials of common products, separating them, and recycling them is essential to the goal of being sensible environmental stewards. Reducing the overall amount of material that filters into landfills requires diligent waste management in various aspects of the procurement, life, and disposal phases of products. Disposal Recycle Identify and promote the recycling program available in your business or community. Ensure that your materials are being recycled. Compost If discarded in landfills, food waste can emit harmful gases into the environment. Food materials can actually be collected onsite and turned into useful nutrient matter for soil. Composting can be an acceptable alternative that has promising implications for waste management both at home and in industry. Procurement Dematerialization Limit purchases to necessary products.

Talk to Explain How Rejection Can Mentally Affect Gay Men

By wlchrist The next Psychology Graduate Research Series talk will discuss the various psychological effects gay men may experience as a result of sensitivity to sexuality-based rejection. The event is co-hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences and NSU’s Center for Psychological Studies (CPS). “The Impact of Sexuality-Based Rejection Sensitivity on the Psychological Functioning of Gay Men” Psychology Graduate Research Series | Joseph C. Slimowicz, student at CPS Wednesday, Mar. 19 Noon–1:00 p.m. Maltz Psychology Building | Room 2055 About the Research Gay males often experience a vast amount of psychosocial difficulties as a result of their identification as a sexual-minority individual. Rejection sensitivity is characterized as the anxious expectation of rejection, coupled with a tendency to readily interpret rejection in the ambiguous interpersonal behavior of others. Until recently, research and development of this construct were restricted to interpersonal social and dating dynamics among heterosexuals. However, the advent of sexual-oriented-specific measures has offered a new avenue into the study of psychological processes specific to gay males. Slimowicz will discuss his study, which evaluated the impact of varying levels of trait-rejection sensitivity on a wide variety of psychological functioning in 142 gay men from several metropolitan areas. Results indicate significant correlations among measures of sexuality-based-rejection sensitivity, personality, coping …read more Source: NSU News...
