Answer: . Actually, no. 25% of pregnant women do not experience morning sickness, and have entirely normal pregnancies. Most women who do not have morning sickness go full term without miscarriages.

What is the name given to the medical disorder that Stephen Glass suffered from and caused him to compulsively lie in his articles and employment at the New Republic?

Answer . Steven Glass hasn't been diagnosed by a therapist so one could not pin-point or should not second-guess what type of person he is or what his character faults are. It's obvious he has a need to be recognized, is a compulsive liar, egomaniacal, needy, and to round things off has signs of a narcissistic personality and that much is true because of the interview he gave (below). Glass has been quoted as saying that he just wanted people to notice him and to pat him on the back for a job well done. Although he didn't have the sense to realize he couldn't lie forever and he caused terrible harm to many important people's reputations one has to realize how clever this young man is. He's clever like a fox! I do admire him for that, but, he's ruined his entire career by the malady(s) he possesses. The sad thing is he could have been a great article writer if he had given himself half a chance, but he reached for the stars before he was ready so he lied about people in most of the articles he wrote to reach those stars sooner. Here is a good article about the man:\n. \nStephen Glass: I Lied For Esteem\n. \nAug. 17, 2003\n. \nStephen Glass has written a novel about his life called

How does pregnancy cause morning sickness?

No one knows for sure but is thought to have something to do withhormones and other changes in the body-possible causes thought toinclude: . Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Thishormone rises rapidly during early pregnancy. No one knows how hCGcontributes to nausea, but it's a prime suspect because the timingis right: Nausea tends to peak around the same time as levels ofhCG. What's more, conditions in which women have higher levels ofhCG, such as carrying multiples, are associated with higher ratesof nausea and vomiting. . Estrogen. This hormone, which also risesrapidly in early pregnancy, is another suspect. (It's possible thatother hormones play a role as well.) . An enhanced sense of smell and sensitivity toodors. It's not uncommon for a newly pregnant woman tofeel overwhelmed by the smell of a bologna sandwich from fourcubicles away, for example. Certain aromas instantly trigger thegag reflex. (Some researchers think this may be a result of higherlevels of estrogen, but no one knows for sure.) . A sensitive stomach. Some women'sgastrointestinal tracts are simply more sensitive to the changes ofearly pregnancy. Also, some research suggests that women with astomach bacterium called Helicobacter pylori are morelikely to have nausea and vomiting. Not all studies confirm thislink, though. . Stress. Some researchers have proposed thatcertain women are psychologically predisposed to having nausea andvomiting during pregnancy as an abnormal response to stress.However, there's no conclusive evidence to support this theory. (Ofcourse, if you're constantly nauseated or vomiting a lot, youcertainly may begin to feel more stressed!)

Can injectable medication be given intravenously?

Well the terms you use are not of the same subgroup. What I mean is that there are several methods of injection or infusion , including: . Intradermal - between layers of the skin . Subcutaneous - just under the skin . Intramuscular - into the muscle . Intravenous - into the vein/artery . Intraosseous - into the marrow of the bone . Intraperitoneal - into a body cavity . Therefore, an injectable medication can be given intravenously depending on which route it normally takes. Sometimes drugs can be administered though few of the different routes however more often it cannot be for various reasons. For example, intraosseous injection introduces pharmological compounds into the blood-brain barrier directly, often used when the drug cannot cross the barrier or breaks down far to quick in the normal systemic circulation. Therefore an intraosseous drug administered intravenously may not reach its target site and be rendered useless. Of those that can be administered in more than one way, subcutaneous and intramuscular injections can often be interchanged, as well as sometimes intramuscular and intravenous, although one must always be careful of the nuances of the specific substance to be administered.

Medication given for coughs and colds?

There are mostly cough and cold preparations for symptomatic relief such as antihistamines, cough syrups, inhalers or lozenges. However these medications are soinly symptomatic, only lasting for 6- 24 hours. There is a natural supplement for cough and colds. This natural supplement is Sinus Eliminato Complex. Sinus Eliminato complex is made up of Carpinus Betulus (Hornbeam) buds, Rosa Canina (Dog Rose) young shoots, Sambucus Nigra (Black Elder) buds, Populus Nigra (Black Poplar), Ribes Nigrum (Black Currant) and Juglans Regia (Wlanut) buds. Fecka (2009) has isolated tannins and polyphenols from Rosa Canina. Polyphenols act as antioxidants. They protect cells and body chemicals against damage caused by free radicals, reactive atoms that contribute to tissue damage in the body. In addition, polyphenols also activate the key enzyme (AMP kinase) that can exert an anti-inflammatory effect by inhibiting the activation of inducible inflammatory proteins that normally occurs once the innate immune system has been activated. A study done by Roschek et al (2009) has shown that Sambucus Nigra (Black Elder) has flavonoids which bind to and prevent H1N1 infection. Also contained in Sinus Eliminato are a variety of plant growth hormones and vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin D, which can certainly fight off infection and boost immune resistance during the cold months! Sinus Eliminato Complex can be purchased at PSC Nutrition's website:
