Geostationary Earth Orbit Positioning System (GEO positioning)


Geostationary Earth Orbit Positioning System (GEO positioning)

Global Positioning System (GPS) technology has increased in importance in recent years. In particular, it is used by aviation navigation. A constellation of over two hundred global positioning system satellites, as well as a series of ground-based GPS devices is responsible for navigational aids in aircraft. While this technology has benefitted consumers, the U.S. military also makes use of it for more mundane purposes, such as locating troops in combat zones. Today, GPS is being used in many other fields, however, as well.

With global warming being one of the major environmental issues of our day, the military is also looking to improve its predictive capabilities. As such, the U.S. Navy is set to launch the first GPS satellites into orbit around Earth. These GPS satellites will allow the Navy to better locate its ships in remote areas where land based sonar devices cannot go. Once in place, the GPS system will be able to relay precise position data to the ship’s computer, which can then use the data to determine the ship’s position.

When it comes to space exploration, there are many applications for a GPS satellite. One of these is to track the moon, allowing scientists to monitor its movement around the earth. Another application comes from disaster relief, as well. By monitoring the sun, wind, rain and other natural processes going on around the world, a satellite could provide much-needed information during natural disasters.

In addition to tracking the natural world around us, the U.S. Navy operates a satellite that goes by the name of GDOTS, or Global Positioning System – Topography, Airway, Space, Air Navigation and Timing System. This advanced GPS device goes by two names, but in actuality, the primary operation name is Global Positioning System. It is commonly known as GPS Tx, or transiting global positioning system. The U.S. Navy’s GPS Tx is called the GO-TO device, while the broader context refers to it as the 75 degrees west longitude geostationary weather satellite.

The GO-TO is part of a constellation of secondary satellites, known as the first-generation earth-orbit satellites. It is one of the two operational geostationary weather satellites. Other members of this fleet are the GO-rica and GO-space satellites. As part of its function as an operational weather forecast system, the GPS Tx is primarily used to track precipitation patterns over the Earth’s surface using rainfall gauge-based sensors. It also records the location of rainfall events, which is essential for severe weather forecasting.

Like the US Navy’s other operational environmental satellites, the GO-TO has a completely different purpose. Instead of tracking the precipitation on the ground, it monitors the changes in the Earth’s orbit about the sun. This data is used by weather prediction and climate change models to generate new and better models which in turn can be employed on earth and in space to better forecast future climate and weather conditions. These new predictions are used by emergency responders and meteorologists to plan rescue missions and protect the populace from potential hazards.

Teaching Students About Why Being Nice Is Important


Teaching Students About Why Being Nice Is Important

It is often said that a nice guy always finishes last, but is this true? Many studies have been conducted into whether men or women are really more likely to finish first. While the results may vary according to different types of study, there are some generalizations about who is actually the most likely to “win” a nice guy/girl card game.

According to several studies, students who are given high-quality and frequent feedback tend to learn faster, have better test scores, and do better at their classes than those who are not. In addition, students who are given consistent positive feedback, that is, praise, reinforcement, and peer support are able to apply this information and apply it in various settings. This type of social exchange promotes learning and encourages students to use quality standards for themselves, as well as others. They also tend to be high-quality leaders who can contribute meaningfully to society.

When looking at which lesson needs to be taught with social care, the results are almost always the same: sharing. In other words, students need to be encouraged and supported to express their needs and desires with people they will be in contact with every day. Sharing is not only applicable in interpersonal relationships, but it also applies in educational settings. Teachers must give students meaningful opportunities to apply what they have learned in lessons. They can’t do this by just giving them a cookie cutter lesson plan, telling them to read the same material over again, and expect the same results.

To share what they have learned in lessons, students need to be engaged in activities that they enjoy. If they are forced to take a boring lesson plan with no input from the student, or if they are forced to listen to boring lectures with no enjoyment, they won’t apply what they have learned in lessons. Those involved in quality standards education should be aware of this possibility. By teaching students to get involved in activities that they find interesting, students will be more likely to learn and apply what they have been taught in class. This applies not only to public health and social care services, but also to career planning, communication skills, and much more.

The second part of quality standards education, teaching students about why being a nice person is important as well. A good way to make sure that students understand the importance of being a nice person is to hold a “niceness assessment” session with each student before each school year begins. That way, teachers can get an accurate picture of how students see themselves in different situations. After each assessment, then teachers can design appropriate interventions and lesson plans based on the results of the assessment. Overall, holding a “niceness assessment” is very valuable for quality standards guidance and for the development of curriculum and lesson plans. NCCSC now holds several quality standards assessment workshops for schools to help educators understand how students learn and how teachers can improve their classroom practices.

In the end, being a nice person is worth its weight in gold. Being nice can help you avoid conflict, and even win some brownie points with your peers! But it isn’t worth wasting time worrying about whether or not you are being nice when you don’t need to be. Public sector employers are well aware that the key to cost effectiveness is to select cost effective treatments instead of treating diseases or conditions with traditional approaches. Public health professionals must therefore work to develop new strategies to promote healthier lifestyles through education, prevention, and treatment.

The Link Between Diet, Exercise, and Wellness

In most ethical context, the idea of good means the course which ought to be preferred whenever presented with a decision between alternatives. Good is typically believed to be the polar opposite of evil, which is of less interest in the field of philosophy, religion, ethics and morality. For some philosophers, good is equated with rational purpose and human happiness, which is often associated with mankind as a whole. Others subscribe to the idea of good, for example, utilitarian philosophers who believe that what satisfies the greatest number of individuals is the course of action that leads to the greatest happiness of all.


A physical well-being is an essential component of good health. The state of one’s physical well-being reflects his or her psychological well-being. Psychologically well-being is linked with both inner awareness and the ability to experience pleasure. In developed countries, good health usually results from a good diet, regular exercise, and a healthy lifestyle. These elements are reflected in dietary nutrition practices, which are promoted by public health programs in developed countries.

Poor physical health, on the other hand, may result from physical problems such as obesity and sedentary lifestyle. These problems are more prevalent among urban people. They may increase vulnerability to serious illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes. Overweight people have poorer physical well-being, but they have higher chances of acquiring mental illness. The association between mental illness and obesity has not been adequately explored.

A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and seeds is a good way to attain good health. A well-balanced diet with abundant intake of fish, red meat, poultry, legumes, and dairy products and with reduced consumption of sweets, fats, salt, and processed foods may increase your mental health and decrease your risk of developing an illness. In developed countries, a good diet is not readily available and good dietary habits are quite difficult to learn. Lack of physical exercise is another impediment to achieving good health.

Stress management, yoga, meditation, relaxation techniques, regular exercise, and a healthy lifestyle are important ways to attain good physical well-being and good mental health. A good sleep pattern and sufficient time to rest each day are essential for reducing stress. Regular exercise is also vital for maintaining good health. However, in some cases, an increase in physical activity may be detrimental. Adequate sleep, yoga, meditation, relaxation techniques, and a healthy lifestyle are important factors in achieving mental health and good mental wellness.

A good lifestyle is a combination of healthy diet and physical well-being. A healthy diet is important to achieve good physical health, while a physically active lifestyle is important for achieving mental health. Mental illnesses often have biological causes and social environmental influences. Therefore, mental health and good physical health are often closely linked. A combination of appropriate diet, regular exercise, and good hygiene can help you lead a happy and fulfilling life.

Bicycle Facts And Information

A bicycle, also known as a cycle or bike, is a wheeled vehicle, with two wheels connected to a framework, one behind another, that can be operated manually or mechanically. A bicycle rider is commonly known as a biker, or bicycle rider. Bicyclists can be categorized into three categories: experienced riders who use bicycles for recreation and competition, occasional riders who use bicycles on a more regular basis, and commuters who use bicycles as their mode of transport.


The best known example of a bicycle is the two-wheeled cycle, sometimes called the velocipede. Other examples of two-wheeled cycles are the single-wheeled cycle (sometimes called the Schwinn cycle), the track bike, and the velobike. Of these three types of bicycles, the velocipede and the track bike are the most popular.

In comparison to other bicycles, a bicycle with two wheels is light, flexible, and comfortable to ride. It has more rolling resistance than other two-wheeled cycles, like the velocipede or the road bike. This is because the rider is balancing two pedals at once, rather than one. Many cyclists prefer this type of bicycle for urban commutes or weekend tours.

Bicycle frames are constructed in various styles, depending on the purpose for which the bicycle will be used. Some bicycles have front and rear shocks, and a variety of handlebars and pedals. The typical bicycle has a fixed frame with a seat on it. The seats and the seat tube of bicycles have been specially designed to provide comfort, stability, and support while the rider is pedaling.

A common type of bicycle that is used for transportation is the tandem bicycle. In a tandem bicycle, the younger bicyclists can ride with the adults. A number of companies produce tandem bicycles, including the Specialized Bicycle Company and the Schwinn Bicycle Company.

A bicycle is also used for recreation, such as hiking and mountain biking. The popularity of mountain biking is on the rise. Mountain bikes are usually longer and heavier than other kinds of bicycle. These bicycles also have a longer top tube and a bigger wheelbase. Bicyclists use racks, locks, and gears to make cycling more convenient.

The bicycle is also used for transportation on many levels. It is not uncommon to see a bicycle cart used for tours of the United States, and in many other countries around the world. The bicycle is also commonly used for traveling within cities, as many people prefer to cycle instead of use public transportation. Bicycles are also used for shopping. Bicyclers can take their bicycles shopping, to malls and department stores.

There are many more reasons that bicycling is popular. Cycling helps to promote healthy lifestyles and get people off the roads and in shape. Bicycling is a popular form of exercise because it allows many people to get in shape. Cycling is very good for cardiovascular health.

In addition to its numerous positive aspects, there are some disadvantages of a bicycle as well. People tend to be on the safe side when riding a bicycle. However, bicycles do have a tendency to fall down or over. Bicyclers should pay close attention to the road and the bicycle they are riding. They should also pay attention to other cars on the road, and avoid speeding and weaving in and out of traffic.

CNO Launches Second Satellite Of The New Generation


CNO Launches Second Satellite Of The New Generation

The GOES (GOES-East) is a jointly-leased weather satellite system operated by The U.S. National Oceanic and atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service. The GOES stands for the geostationary orbit that goes around the Earth every 24 hours. The name itself suggests that the satellites go around the Earth in a single orbit, but this is not correct. Geostationary satellites are those that have a fixed orbit above the Earth. The other classification is the geosynchronous satellites which move around the Earth at a very high speed and can be easily monitored.

The GOES-East is located above Jamaica, Long island and Cuba. This highly sensitive weather satellite is vital to our weather monitoring and research purposes. It takes the entire globe into consideration when computing numerical algorithms to forecast the weather. These algorithms use the Doppler effect that determines where exactly a storm will strike. From the final Doppler forecast, computer models are then used to determine where the storm will go and how strong it will be.

Once a computer model is created, it is subjected to rigorous testing to ensure that it meets all of the stringent safety standards. The last phase of testing is done by launch. It goes through a series of countdown activities including engine testing, vehicle set-up, vibration and stress testing as well as a number of other checks. On the morning of the launch date, all equipment must be turned off and sealed in a sealed container to avoid contamination. It is also important that the vehicle receives a full power shutdown two hours prior to launch.

The GOES-East is scheduled to be launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida and will reach orbit around Earth on December 14th, 2021. It will transmit data to NASA headquarters in Washington D.C. during its first Earth orbit trial. On its way, it will monitor the Earth and weather patterns in order to better forecast future weather conditions. Many media outlets have called the GOES-East project a failure due to the fact that it was supposed to receive data by 2021 but that date has slipped. However, the test went well and the GOES-East program should be declared a success before the end of the decade.

The other two geostationary orbit programs launched by CNO (the Canadian Space Agency) on December 7th, 2021 will measure the distribution of cloud cover over the equator. The GOES-17 satellite will track heavy rainfall in the western Pacific Ocean while the GOES-East will study clouds and precipitation in the eastern Pacific Ocean. COSM ( Catalog of Planetary Systems Satellite) is scheduled to launch a geostationary weather satellite in late 2021. This will be the first-ever Global Constellar Network Satellite which will allow researchers to study space weather patterns in detail.

Although many experts had said that the COSM-E would be more effective at taking global pictures than the previous GOES satellites, CNO has delayed the launch of its geostationary communications satellite for at least four months to allow more time for the US to be prepared for it. The final test of the GOES-East program was carried out by NASA’s STS-3 crew which resulted in spectacular pictures. The best images will be made available to the public when the data from the mission is released to the scientific community. CNO will not be changing the name of the GOES-E to something more catchy or less significant. They are aware that the international space station is a much-anticipated event. In order for this launch to go smoothly, CNO has included several safety features in their program which will make for a successful mission.

Treating People Nicely – Is It Cost Effective?

In my view, nice people are the worst. I really believe that it is a sickness within society, as we see the word in everyday life. We are led to believe that being nice means that you are polite, kind, or considerate. But the fact is that nice men are seldom the nice men that they pretend to be. Here are five reasons why I think that nice men are not nearly as nice as they make themselves out to be.


The prefix ‘nice’ comes from the Greek word nachos, meaning “not nice”. Nice is often used as a synonym for virtuous, but the prefix implies “not” instead of “good”. So a nice fellow is a virtuous, good person who may seem to be nice at first glance, but is anything but nice. For example, a nice fellow is a colleague who doesn’t try to talk his way out of a speeding ticket, but he sure does try. A nice guy can be a caring friend and a wonderful father, but he’s no nice fellow at all.

I spent some time doing research on nice folks in the medical field, and I found that many medical professionals don’t approve of them very much. They view nice men as weak, whiny, needy, and willing to go along with anyone in the quest for acceptance and power. There are even some online forums that describe nice men as effeminate, whiny, cry babies, and other traits you would expect to find in anorexics, trampolines, and autistic children. In fact, there is a popular British TV show that spoofs doctors as the “needy doctor” and portrays him as a shallow, selfish prick who is a danger to the patients he treats.

A nice guy, according to some experts, is a guy who is polite and helpful, but who doesn’t push himself on others too hard and demand their respect. He is nice in the public setting, but not in personal relationships. Some would say it is nice to be nice in a business relationship, but then there are those in financial and leadership positions who make it their business to be nice to everyone, particularly those above them in the ladder of success. Is it possible to develop a leadership skills that makes you nice to those who aren’t in your “friend zone?” I recently conducted a workshop for leaders in small organizations, and we were discussing leadership and relationships, and I asked if anyone had ever considered being nice to those who were below you in the company pyramid?

Most said they hadn’t thought of it, and some said they had, but felt uncomfortable because they worried it would be perceived as a sign of weakness. The results of my research were quite interesting. Most clinical guidelines for dealing with nagging, passive customers suggest ignoring them until they start shouting. However, one of my participants suggested a different strategy: instead of ignoring the customer in favor of ignoring them until they get mad, ignore them until they become calm. That approach seems more likely to make the person feel heard and acknowledged rather than ignored and angry. Although clinicians often have very good training in communication and coaching skills, sometimes they don’t know how to connect with clients on an intuitive level.

In my next post, I’ll present findings from my research as a clinical social care professional, and I will also share some tips for clinicians and other healthcare professionals who may encounter angry, needy people who are looking for someone to take care of them. However, for now, let me suggest a different strategy that is both cost effective and compassionate – treating people how you want to be treated. Asking the client what their goals are in their interactions with you, and then modeling the behavior that supports those goals when appropriate, can have a tremendous impact on building trust and creating the environment for more meaningful communication. When patients and health care professionals model the behavior that supports their goals instead of practicing the “you’re here because you’re sick” model, the result will be a much more productive, less stressful work environment.

What Good Is a Good Credit Score?


What Good Is a Good Credit Score?

In many contexts, the word good means the course that ought to be chosen when confronted with a moral dilemma between good and bad. Good is normally understood to be the polar opposite of evil and is of particular interest in the study of philosophy, religion, ethics and morality. It is used to refer to things that are desirable or gratifying, while bad refers to those things that are unpleasant, disagreeable or destructive. In addition, good and evil may also mean true values independently of other people’s opinions. For instance, people may regard killing as good while another may regard it as evil.

The concept of good and evil became prominent in ancient Greece, when philosophers like Plato and Aristotle propounded different ethical theories. Plato believed that right and wrong were absolute, and that there could be no grey area in between them. According to him, virtue was the supreme good, while vice was the main evil. For Aristotle, justice was the only good, and virtue the only evil, while he distinguished between happiness and misery, saying that the former was a product of virtue and the latter a product of vice.

A more secular context in which to talk about good and evil was provided by the writings of William Shakespeare. He described virtue and vice as “the alternation of good and ill”, and used the terms good and evil to contrast the lives of great characters like King Lear and Othello. He even pointed out how these two types of characters experienced joy and sorrow at different times in their lives. Thus, according to Shakespeare, virtue was the one that was shared by the characters on either side of the law, while evil was the one that was sole to be experienced by the anti-heroes. The Oxford Dictionary definition of the term has good as its base word, while evil is one of its variants.

In terms of political philosophy, Edmund Burke defines virtue as, “a form of practical and social wisdom, which tends to increase the happiness of man”. According to the common Oxford definition, however, a virtue is “the observance of rules or laws, founded on the ideas of right and justice” and “the willingness and sincere avidity to comply with such rules or laws”. In light of the definitions of good and evil, perhaps we can see the difference between personal ethics and public ethics.

However, what is important is not just personal ethics (rightness) but rather a good credit score, which is rooted in financial considerations. When your credit history shows consistent payments of all your debts, then that is a sign that lenders see you as a responsible borrower. If not, then lenders are more hesitant in offering loans. But what kind of impression do good credit scores leave on future creditors? A good credit score leaves a good impression on future lenders that a borrower is a safe bet.

In addition to the credit score, lenders will also consider the type of lender that you choose. The conventional lenders usually target borrowers with low credit scores and offer them unsecured short-term loans. However, non-conventional lenders sometimes look down on borrowers with bad credit histories and offer them secured loans that require collateral. It is important for borrowers to realize that even if they do have bad credit scores, they should still apply to at least two or three conventional lenders. This gives them the opportunity to negotiate the terms of their loan and get better terms and interest rates than what they would get from a hard lender.

The History Of The Bicycle

A bicycle, also known as a bicycle or pedal cycle, is a pedal-driven or motorized, single-wheel road-bicycle, with two wheels connected to a rigid frame, on which pedals are attached. A bicycle rider is commonly known as a biker, or bicycle rider. Bicyclists do not ride on pavement, but instead travel on sidewalks and bike paths. Bicyclists often prefer to use pavement to save the wear and tear of riding on a sidewalk, though some bikers prefer to ride on pathways, especially in urban areas where safety is an issue. Most bikers are male, and most bicycles are powered by electric motors.


These days, many people cycle for fitness and other reasons. Some people do so to participate in an organized cycling race. Bicycling is very popular among athletes, because it allows the athlete to train in a comfortable and safe way. In addition to training, cycling gives the athlete plenty of exercise while still being low impact. Bicycles can be fitted with many different kinds of accessories that make them more efficient for the cyclist’s needs.

A typical bicycle has a seat frame with two wheels and a single chain to connect the two wheels. The pedals are mounted on the outside of the seat, usually in the center, on a stem bar. The handlebars are fixed, and are either topped with a hand-held helmet or shaped like a bicycle with the seat and handlebars bent into a “B” shape. The bicycle has a chain and brakes, and is powered by an engine similar to what is found in a car. Bicycles can be propelled by pedaling, or by both hands.

Bicycles have been used by people for transportation for many years. Early models were not very efficient, because only two wheels were involved. The bicycle was eventually modified to incorporate a hand crank, and the pedals were added to the rear wheel.

Today bicycles are an everyday part of transportation for most people. Most bicycles are single wheels, but there are two-wheelers that can also be fitted with pedals. Bicycles that are adapted to handle weights over ten pounds usually have between one and three gears. Many bicycles have been made with detachable handlebars and helmets. Most bicycles today are made for both men and women, and have a built-in holder for a purse or diaper bag.

A bicycle is different from a moped or a motorcycle in many ways. A bicycle is classified as a “bicycle” even though it does not have the engine power of a motorcycle. A bicycle is also classified by the way in which the rider sits. A bicycle is generally placed on the rear wheel of the bicycle, while a motorcycle is usually put on the front wheel. A person who rides a bicycle can sit on the seat in the same way that a rider of a motorcycle sits, although some cyclists prefer to sit in the front passenger seat.

The U.S. Air Force’s Goes-R Satellite

The National Weather Service (NWS) is a U.S. federal agency responsible for collecting and disseminating weather data and information. In collaboration with other agencies and organizations, the NWS provides regular forecast reports that are used to assess the potential impact of upcoming weather events on our nation. Among other things, the NWS provides forecasts for local weather conditions in all regions of the country, providing crucial warnings to the public and media about expected climate changes. Forecasts from the NWS are considered precise, as they are based on very thorough and accurate mathematical models and methodologies. While these models do not include human input, they are considered as one of the most accurate methods of predicting climate.


The GSA, which is part of the National Science Foundation, is responsible for funding the GSA satellite data collections. GSA is the administrator for the Earth monitoring programs, which allows it to collect and distribute GSA data to the public. GSA operates two main programs. The first one is the Earth observing network (EON), which aims to improve global monitoring of the atmosphere and land surface. The second program is the Global Atmosphere Research Program (AGP), which has an operational agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation.

The Earth observation program is responsible for mapping land surfaces, detecting atmospheric gases, monitoring precipitation, searching for ice melt, detecting space weather, surveying for land formations such as volcanoes, and identifying cloudiness. The second program is the Global Atmosphere Research Program (AGP), which is responsible for high-altitude balloon imaging, data collection, and research data analysis. The AGP also monitors the ionosphere, ionospheric weather, and polar stratospheric wind. The third program is the Magnetometer Program, which is responsible for the continuous measurement of magnetic fields during weather observations. The GSA also operates two ground-based magnetometers, namely the Aura imaging magnetometer and the Very Longitude (VL) magnetometer.

The GSA satellite instrument is designed to monitor the atmosphere, while the magnetometer instrument is meant to detect magnetic fields. The GSA imager can be operated in passive mode to record data during the day or in active mode to continuously monitor the atmosphere. There are four types of passive modes. They are known as the Doppler Imager, Radarsat and RALIS; General orbit mode; microwave Doppler imager; near-surface Doppler radio-detecting imager; and the Near-orbit, High-resolution Radar (HRD) Scanning Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (SIRIS). For the active modes, there are the Automatic Switch-On System (ASOS), High-gain Transceiver Accessory (HSAT), High-resolution Scanning Camera (HRC) and the infrared spectrometer/imager. The last type, the ultraviolet spectrometer/imager, is used to determine the composition of the uppermost layers of the atmosphere.

When operational, these operational environmental satellites are designed to operate for at least two years. But they also have longer-term life spans. And after decommissioning, the remaining operational environment satellites can still continue to function for up to three more years. After decommissioning, operational environmental satellites are typically removed from service and relocated to a higher-safe altitude, usually above the ocean, so they will not be affected by other surface debris. They are also destroyed at sea or elsewhere.

All the equipment and the instruments aboard the Global Positioning System (GPS) instrument were designed to last for five years or more. However, one notable malfunction in one or two of the system’s components led to a loss of data from the GPS. That malfunction has been resolved and the remaining operational goes-r satellites are expected to operate flawlessly for several more years. A final flight test was completed recently and the final set of go-r disposal procedures has been approved and scheduled to take place at some point in the future.

Is Being Nice a Good Idea?

Do you want to be known as a “nice guy”? Do you want to know how to make other people feel good about themselves and have them think nice things about you? Are you interested in having more good relationships with good people? If so, then you should read this article. It will teach you how to be a nice guy, without it being cheesy or coming off as an attempt to manipulate.


The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is an independent executive board of the Government of England, which produces guidelines in four fields: medical, social care, community and public health. It is the largest ever voluntary organisation in the United Kingdom, with more than 13 million members. All of its members are experts in their field, with a further level of board directorships for each discipline. The key players are the consultants NICE provides, who are responsible for drawing up the strategies that all its members need to apply in practice to deliver the guidelines as effectively as possible.

One strategy that the consultants work on is to use the strengths of all of its members to make its recommendations as broadly as possible, taking into account the views and opinions of other people too. This strategy is called “community effectiveness”. It has been found to be very cost effective, both in terms of the actual budget received, as well as the services provided to the local communities. This is one reason why so many social care professionals are now using this method of strategy.

Another strategy that NICE uses is to recommend treatments that are most likely to be liked by the people who will receive them. Guidelines are not legally enforceable, but they do set out what is expected from healthcare professionals. In general, the more desirable treatments, such as surgery, are less likely to be recommended, and even recommended only when there is very little choice left. This is because people prefer to use drugs, rather than have surgery, or take drugs which may cause side effects. Therefore, by recommending more expensive treatments, they hope to ensure that they make more money.

It should be noted, however, that this strategy has been found to cause problems within some professional bodies. For example, in a paper published last year, a group of clinical psychologists said that “engaging in behaviour suggesting social normality was detrimental to the implementation of clinical guidelines”. This was particularly the case with procedures such as “Etherapy”. The guidelines state that these procedures should not be carried out if there is no good evidence that they will improve patients’ condition. As a result, some clinical psychologists said that there was no point in even beginning such treatments.

A more worrying trend, however, is the increasing number of hospitals and clinics around the UK that are starting to offer drug-based treatments for patients with severe psychiatric conditions. These drugs have been found to be at least as effective as their chemical equivalent, and can also be more cost-effective. There are already drug-free alternatives available for people who want to take advantage of these services, and it is unclear how many clinics will offer them. If you’re in England and need some serious help, why not try an herbal remedy?
