Coping with Terrorism and Other Traumatic Events

What psychological reactions are we likely to experience following acts of terrorism Is the current state of mental health care in America adequate to the challenge of treating terrorism-related psychological problems 2. Keep what happened in perspective. Terrorism is the work of evil that does not represent the majority of people in the world. Acts of terror are not personal, but reflect the pain and irresponsible scapegoating of the perpetrators. Despite the horror, most of the country is intact. We are a resilient nation and we will survive what has happened with resolve. What we stand for decency and freedom is stronger than fanaticism. Especially, hold an image of love and decency that is greater than the image of evil. This wholesome image might be of a loving God or of loving and decent people. Some find solace in the spiritual perspective that no eternal defeat befalls decent individuals. 9. Do not allow yourself to be consumed with hatred. It not only lowers us to the level...

A Review of Some Toxic Agents addresses in detail a selection of important toxic agents carbon monoxide pesticides heavy metals and trace elements as well as the emerging issues of traditional medicines and the deliberate release of toxic agents in warfare and terrorism. There are new chapters covering the toxic products of combustion and the increasingly important area of nanotoxicology.

Biological protection performance

The selection of protective clothing that provides protection against biological hazards depends on the proposed end use of the clothing. Some of the common end uses are to protect the patient as well as medical professionals who are exposed to blood-borne and other pathogens. Until recently, the majority of biological hazard test methods and guidelines focused on applications in the medical field and for military personnel. With the current bio-terrorism threats, biological protection is important for 'first responders', workers with the potential of exposure to hazardous materials, and the general public. Biological hazards are commonly bacteria, viruses, or toxins that exist as very fine air or liquid-borne particles.

Wider Issues of a Creative Class or Sector

The Creativity Research Journal carried a special theme in its issue for April-June 2008, on the topic of 'Malevolent Creativity.' This was not concerned with the aforementioned dangerous scientific research issue but rather the creativity of those involved in acts of crime and terrorism. The paper by James and Drown looks for lessons from 9 11 and the transportation of hazardous materials by truckers. This article and the other commentaries in the Creativity Research Journal are

The Four Ps of Creativity and the Dark Side

Thus, while intent may be malevolent, and a negative outcome may result, one can conceive of two pathways to this result. One arises from a situation where both the Process and the Press act in concert with the intent, whereas the other arises from a situation where Process and Press act in opposition to the intent. Put more plainly, malevolent intent that achieves a negative outcome in spite of the process and press is resilient malevolence, in contrast to conscious malevolence that succeeds because of the process and press. The terrorist attacks on 9 11 again assist us in understanding the different forms of the dark side of creativity. It can be argued that the hijackers of the aircraft involved in the Twin Towers attacks, and the Pentagon attack, succeeded in spite of an obstructive press. In other words, the normal security measures that were part of the

Dealing with the Dark Side

Second, the more precise, and more highly differentiated, the model of the dark side of creativity, the more likely one is to find ways to counteract it. In the same way that the positive aspects of creativity are highly valued, for example, in business -a great deal of time and effort is spent trying to enhance the creativity of individuals and organizations - one needs to invest time and effort in learning how to minimize the impact of the dark side. Whether this is used to prevent terrorist attacks, or to prevent criminal acts, or simply to guard against the accidental negative consequences of a new technology, a detailed model is the first step in equipping society to deal with the dark side of creativity.

The Problem of Negative Creativity

Creativity is misused, perhaps in the way just outlined, in advertising, where it is employed for instance to promote the sales of among other things unhealthy food or dangerous products, in business to evade regulators or to steal competitors' secrets, in entertainment to promote repulsive values, glorify crime, etc., in politics to promote, for instance, racial hatred, in science and technology to develop and build weapons of mass destruction, in social or work life, for instance to avoid work, curry favor, gain unfair advantage, or steal from an employer, in crime, in war, or in terrorism. Most obviously dark, however, is the deliberate application of creativity with the conscious primary intention of doing harm to others -'malevolent' creativity. However, such intentional negative creativity may be widely applauded as positive by one side (for instance the victors in war), even though it is devastatingly negative for the other. Thus, it is necessary to avoid being carried away by...

Poisoning in peace and war

The use of chemicals in warfare had been considered for many centuries but it was not until World War I that mass release of chemical was used as part of military activity. Over 113,000 tons of chemicals were used in that war. Mass casualties were often caused when there was an element of surprise. The first major chemical attack was on 22 April 1915, when chlorine released as a cloud caused 15,000 Allied wounded, with 5000 fatalities. However, with the introduction of protective masks such mass fatalities were not usually repeated. The Russians, however, who had little or no protection, suffered over 500,000 casualties from chemical warfare, a fact that had great bearing on the subsequent organization of their army. Box 17.1 outlines the development of chemical agents. Early chemical attacks in World War I probably fuelled the idea of chemical agents being weapons of mass destruction. In fact the ratio of dead to wounded was less than 8 and was lower than for any other weapon systems...

Chemical barrier properties

NFPA 1994 this is a new performance standard released in August 2001 for testing protective ensembles for CB terrorism incidents. 7 This standard defines three classes of ensembles based on the perceived threat at the emergency scene. Differences between the three classes are based on (i) the ability of the ensemble design to resist the inward leakage of chemical and biological contaminants (ii) the resistance of the materials used in the construction of the ensembles to chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals (iii) the strength and durability of these materials. All NFPA 1994 ensembles are

Review of Empirical Research Using a Functional Perspective

A leader in the examination of the directive function of memory with his book, Momentous Events, Vivid Memories. He argues that the retrieval of specific personal event memories, as opposed to more abstract memory representations such as scripts (Abelson, 1981) or general memories (Nelson, 1993), provides important and often overlooked guidance for people as they face new situations in their lives. That is, he suggests that specific episodes can be powerful drivers of behavior in facing challenges posed by one's current environment, and that specific memories are often retrieved involuntarily when needed in response to current concerns (Pillemer, 1998, 2003). The book provides numerous examples of the power of retrieving memories of specific momentous events (e.g., witnessing the September 11 terrorist attacks in the USA) as a means for directing behavior (e.g., choosing not to fly or enter public places immediately following the attacks). Supporting these claims, in recent...

Biological Degradation Of Polymers

Synthetic polyesters are capable of being degraded by microorganisms, polyesters with aliphatic backbones being more susceptible to such degradation than those with aromatic backbones. Polyamides of low molar mass, too, may be degraded by microorganisms, but commercial polyamides, the nylons, tend to be of too great a molar mass and hence are almost completely resistant to biological attack.

Different tasks and environments

Terrorist attacks, confined space entry, and trench cave rescue. Also search in air, water, high angle rescue, swift or still water rescue, and contaminated water diving can be part of their work (Stull et al., 1996a). Often they also provide the first emergency medical care in these situations. Today the concept of 'rescue worker' would describe the occupation better.

Benefits for the Society

Although the term 'creativity' is strongly associated in everyday English with fine arts, literature, music and the like, the benefits for society are now seen as going far beyond the esthetic artistic domain indeed, the original thrust of postSputnik calls for fostering creativity in the classroom focused on science and engineering. Ironically, the initial legislation emphasizing creativity in schools in the United States was the National Defense Education Act. More recent thinking also emphasizes the necessity of creativity in commerce, business, manufacturing and marketing, government, health, transport, and communications, as well as defense, law-enforcement, and counter-terrorism. In a 2009 speech, Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, identified creativity as essential for collective and individual well-being, long and sustainable economic growth, and answers to the current

General protection requirements and applications

The threats to military forces and civilian emergency workers posed by chemical and biological warfare agents (CBW) are the subject of Chapter 20 by Dr Eugene Wilusz and Dr Quoc Truong from the US Army Natick Soldier Centre (NSC) in Massachusetts, USA. Both authors are recognised scientific experts in this field. At the time of writing the predicted threat posed by terrorist attacks on civilians using chemical and biological agents is at a high level, so its importance cannot be understated. Their comprehensive dissertation on the subject includes details of the past, present and future chemical and biological threats, and their effects on humans. Different types of textile-based protection systems are described, which include impermeable, air permeable, semi-

The Changing Understanding of Creativity

Fine art, literature, performing arts, music, and similar artistic esthetic domains, but also included fields such as business, manufacturing, technology, medicine, administration, education, even defense, anti-terrorism, and law enforcement. Its products are sometimes abstract and essentially psychological, such as communication of a feeling, arousal of esthetic admiration, provocation of a new way of looking at such things, or development of new understandings of experience or existence (mainly artistic esthetic or philosophical). However, they may also be concrete such as the making of works of beauty or imagination on the one hand, or on the other the design and construction of novel devices, machines, or structures, processes or systems for producing them, operating procedures, even enhancement of profits or preservation of national security. This interest has been fuelled by the perceived role of creativity in promoting social growth and justice, economic advancement, social...

Type of hazards

Biological hazards are divided by the type of microorganism and the mode of contamination. In the medical field, the primary potential risk to the individual is exposure to hazardous bacteria and viruses through contact with contaminated blood and other potentially hazardous body fluids. Surrogate microbes are commonly used to assess the penetration of extremely hazardous substances such as Hepatitis (B and C) and Human Immunodeficiency Viruses. The other risk is exposure to hazardous airborne pathogens such as influenza and the SARS viruses. Airborne pathogens may pose a risk to the general public, in addition to medical personnel. The hazard may be due to natural causes or as a result of bio-terrorism. As the use of biological agents poses a threat in wars, protective clothing materials are also used to protect military personnel.

Gelspun fibres

A typical stress-strain curve for HMPE fibre is shown in Fig. 5.2(c). Table 5.3 lists the various types with their mechanical properties. Gel-spun HMPE fibres combine high modulus and high tenacity, which makes them right for ballistic impact resistance. The fibres melt at 150 0C and their properties deteriorate as temperature rises above room temperature. Under high stresses, the fibres creep extensively and can break after short times under load. A secondary slow heating under tension close to the melting point increases modulus and reduces creep. In applications in which creep is a potential problem, the manufacturer's advice should be sought, because of the large difference of creep behaviour of different HMPE fibres. HMPE fibres are extremely resistant to chemical and biological attack and have better abrasion and fatigue reistance than aramid fibres. Further information on gel-spun HMPE fibres is given by Van Dingenen (2000).

Concluding Remarks

The concept of a dark side to creativity, at least explicitly stated, is fairly new. It arises when attention is turned from studies of creativity based on outcome measures that focus on positive ideas, solutions, products, and outcomes, to outcome measures that focus on negatives. Acts of terrorism, as well as fraud, theft, and deceit bring into focus the fact that creativity is by no means limited to the production of useful or effective novelty for universally positive purposes. James et al. resolve the qualitative dilemma this poses by recognizing that while

Comfort vs safety

As the level of protection provided by a clothing system increases, its comfort level generally decreases. This is particularly a problem for systems that are designed to protect against multiple threats (e.g., terrorism). Highly protective systems usually cover most of the body surface and consist of multiple material and or garment layers. Therefore, the thickness and insulation value of the materials may increase, and the permeability of the materials to liquid, air, and moisture vapor may decrease. In addition, the size and number of garment openings for ventilation may be low or nonexistent. Protective garments and equipment are generally higher in weight and stiffness than typical clothing and have a poorer fit due to limited size availability, consequently restricting mobility and increasing the energy production of the wearer. By restricting the heat loss from the body to the environment and causing the wearer's energy expenditure to increase during movement, protective...


Concerns of future terrorism and fear of violence have led to, and will continue to incur, more violence. Although the purpose now and in the future will be to defeat violent extremism, protect the innocent, and help countries rebuild, history shows little evidence that these goals can be achieved. These attempts often have only resulted in more losses loss of lives, loss of hope for peaceful solutions, and loss of confidence in national leaders. Changes in values and belief systems challenge individuals' and nations' assumptive world, and this is an integral part of the grief process. Losses must be addressed on all levels and across all perspectives.

Police requirements

Crime that has a direct connection with physical impact to a police officer ranges from public order disturbances, firearms-related robbery, gang culture and domestic violence to terrorist attacks. The types of attack range from impacts from thrown missiles like bricks and improvised spears to fire threats from Molotov cocktail petrol bombs in public-order disturbances. In other circumstances attacks range from handguns, shotguns and rifles to knives, including combat knives to the kitchen knife and terrorist weapons, including improvised explosive devices.

Metal Types

Tantalum is a gray, heavy, and very hard metal. When pure, it is ductile and can be drawn into fine wire, which is used as a filament for evaporating metals such as aluminum. Tantalum is almost completely immune to chemical attack at temperatures below 150 C, and is attacked only by hydrofluoric

Forensic Imperatives

The success of medico-legal investigations of death in the past decade result, in part, from methodological developments within many research domains of forensic science. However, the recent marked increase in the popularity of all things forensic is also peripherally responsible for an active media feeding the public's fixation on a mystery and society's innate morbid curiosity. A symbiotic relationship flourishes between the media, science, the medico-legal community, and the public that synergistically promotes research progress on many fronts. Add to this mixture a recent burgeoning influx of funding from many governments around the world in attempts to combat a heightened vulnerability to terrorism, and there exists a fertile environment for development and deployment of many cutting-edge techniques in the forensic sciences.
