Determinants of climate change awareness level in upper Nyakach Division, Kisumu County, Kenya
Anxiety disorders are a group of mental disorders characterized by significant feelings of anxiety and fear. The cause of anxiety disorders is thought to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Without treatment, anxiety disorders tend to remain. Generalized anxiety disorder GAD is a common disorder, characterized by long-lasting anxiety which is not focused on any one object or situation. Those suffering from generalized anxiety disorder experience non-specific persistent fear and worry, and become overly concerned with everyday matters. Generalized anxiety disorder is "characterized by chronic excessive worry accompanied by three or more of the following symptoms: restlessness, fatigue, concentration problems, irritability, muscle tension, and sleep disturbance".
Understanding public risk perception of climate change is vital in informing policy and developing effective risk communication strategies. There is a lack of research on public risk perception of climate change in developing countries. Yet, these countries are among the most susceptible to the impacts of climatic changes. The current research provides a novel contribution to the literature by using mixed methods an online survey and semi-structured interviews to examine climate change risk perceptions in a sample of the Egyptian public. Experiential factors affect and personal experience were the strongest predictors of climate change risk perception, while socio-cultural factors value orientations were the weakest predictors. Interviews highlighted that negative feelings featured prominently when people spoke about personal experiences with the impacts of climate change, in particular experience with flash floods.
Box , Maseno, Kenya. Improving the understanding of climate change awareness is one of the top priorities in climate change research. While the African continent is among the regions with the highest vulnerability to climate change, research on climate knowledge and awareness is lacking. Kenya is already grappling with the impacts of climate change, which are projected to increase in a non-linear and non-predictable manner. This study sought to determine climate change awareness levels among households residing in Upper Nyakach Division, Kisumu County, Kenya using common climate change markers viz heavy rainfall, floods, droughts and temperature. A cross-sectional survey design was adopted in which household heads were selected as respondents from 11 sub-locations; all located within Upper Nyakach Division. A questionnaire was used to collect data.
One of the Big Five higher-order personality traits in the study of psychology is neuroticism. Individuals who score high on neuroticism are more likely than average to be moody and to experience such feelings as anxiety , worry , fear , anger , frustration , envy , jealousy , guilt , depressed mood , and loneliness. They are often self-conscious and shy , and they may have trouble controlling urges and delaying gratification. People with a high neuroticism index are at risk for the development and onset of common mental disorders ,   such as mood disorders , anxiety disorders , and substance use disorder , symptoms which had traditionally been called neuroses. Galen of Pergamon popularized the idea that mixes of four bodily fluids or humours resulted in four personality types or temperaments. The melancholic personality type, which can be seen as the conceptual predecessor of neuroticism, was characterized by being mentally unbalanced, fearful, anxious, or sad.

Metrics details. Bangladesh is one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change CC. A basic understanding of public perception on vulnerability, attitude and the risk in relation to CC and health will provide strategic directions for government policy, adaptation strategies and development of community-based guidelines. In , a cross-sectional survey was undertaken among households of enumeration areas of rural villages geographically distributed in seven vulnerable districts of Bangladesh, with total population of 19,, Thirty households were selected randomly from each enumeration area using the household listing provided by the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics BBS.

Sleep is a naturally recurring state of mind and body, characterized by altered consciousness , relatively inhibited sensory activity, reduced muscle activity and inhibition of nearly all voluntary muscles during rapid eye movement REM sleep,  and reduced interactions with surroundings. Sleep occurs in repeating periods , in which the body alternates between two distinct modes: REM sleep and non-REM sleep. Although REM stands for "rapid eye movement", this mode of sleep has many other aspects, including virtual paralysis of the body.

Я не хочу никоим образом нарушать покой директора и говорить с ним о кризисе, в то время как он не в состоянии предпринять хоть что-нибудь. Сьюзан понимала, что коммандер прав. Даже в такие моменты ему удавалось сохранять ясность рассудка. - А вы не думали о том, чтобы позвонить президенту. Стратмор кивнул: - Думал.
