|| April 06: 2018 || ά. The Humanion was first published on September 24, 2015 and has been run, since that day, on a complete voluntary basis without any 'formal' or 'constituted' manner or form and, it was run on as a Human Enterprise, which is an idea of Humanics, in which, ownership is replaced by belongingship and, thus, in a Humanical Society, no one owns anything but everyone belongs to the whole as the whole belongs to everyone lawfully and equally and, it neither believes in nor makes money but human utilities, needs, aspirations, creativity, imagination and dreams are served without money, where everyone works and creates for all others as all others create and work for all others, thus, bringing in meaning and purpose to life along with it come natural justice, equality and liberty, that establish a true civilisation within the Rule of Law. And in one word, this system of human affairs management is called, Humanics and a society that runs itself in humanics is called a humanical society. Today, we have begun the process of 'constituting' this Human Enterprise, which does not exist in the current system, but the next closest thing to it, that exists in the UK Law is Social Enterprise. Therefore, today, Friday, April 06, 2018, we are beginning Regine Humanics Foundation, that is the 'Agency', that will lead, run, manage and develop everything, that The Humanion has been trying to do.

Regine Humanics Foundation is established by the Thinker, Author, Poet, Novelist, Playwright, Editor of The Humanion, Festival Director of London Poetry Festival and a Humanicsxian: hu: maa: neek: tian: One, that believes in, lives and exists by Humanics, Mr Munayem Mayenin, of London, England, United Kingdom. Mr Mayenin says, ''Humanics is a vision; people, may, call it, utopia, we, call it our Humanicsovicsopia; Humanics. Humanics is our philosophy, our faith, our conviction, our resolution, our way of existing, thinking, being and doing: to seek and try to do so in the determination that all we must do and be is to exist to advance the human condition. People, readers and agencies and organisations, from all across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the whole of the United Kingdom and Australasia, Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, from all walks and strata of life, have supported our endeavours, supported The Humanion and The Humanion Team, who volunteered their time to run things, since the beginning of The Humanion and long before that, when other things, that are now part of The Foundation, were developing. Nothing has changed in terms of the nature and value of what we have been seeking to do.''

''But the founding of The Foundation brings it all in a solid foundation so that we can keep on building this 'vision' so that it keeps on going regardless of who come to take the vision-mission of The Foundation forward. The Foundation runs along with time and along with the flowing humanity. This is the dream, this is the vision, this the hope in founding this Foundation. And, in this, we hope and invite all our readers, supporters, well wishers and all agencies and organisations to support our endeavours to build something, a Human Enterprise, which we are in the process of registering as a Social Enterprise, as a Community Interest Company, working for the common good of the one and common humanity. No one makes or takes profit out of The Foundation, which now runs The Humanion and everything else, that is part of it. The Foundation, once registered, will have an Asset Lock, which means that in any event, should The Foundation dissolve itself, all its existing assets shall go to a similar Social Enterprise. Therefore, we invite everyone to support The Foundation, support The Humanion in whatever way they can. And, there are endless number of ways people and organisations can support The Foundation and The Humanion.'' ::: ω.

270 Million Visits Made to English Coastlines Each Year: For the Human Souls Will Forever Seek to Reach Home in Mother Nature

 
 


|| April 06: 2018: University of Exeter News || ά. New research has shown, for the first time, that around 271 million recreational visits are made to marine and coastal environments in England. Conducted by the University of Exeter Medical School and published in the journal Marine Policy, the research found that the most common activity on these visits is walking. The study, also, shows that most people head to these ‘blue’ environments for relaxation and social reasons. Whilst walking, either with or without a dog, was the most popular activity, the analysis showed that coastal walks were more likely to be made by females and older adults, suggesting the coast, may, play a particular role in supporting physical activity in these groups.
 
A growing body of research has shown links between spending time in nature and improvements in health and wellbeing. The findings of this latest study demonstrate the importance of the UK’s coasts for health and wellbeing at a time, when the government is calling for greater protection of, and access to, natural spaces. Other popular activities were sunbathing and paddling, taking place on a quarter of visits to the beach and amounting to 40 million dips a year. Seaside trips were not affected by socio-economic status, however, hinting that spending time in these environments appeals to people across the social spectrum.
 
Dr Lewis Elliott, Environmental Psychologist at the University of Exeter and Lead Author of the study, believes the findings are important for the management of our coastal resources.
 
“We know that blue spaces can deliver significant benefits to health, wellbeing and the economy, yet, no previous research has rigorously attempted to estimate their popularity for recreation or considered the benefits they, may have, for public health. Our estimates have, for the first time, been able to quantify the importance of our beaches and coasts and, we hope, they will help planners make more informed decisions, when considering the management of these natural spaces.”

The research team used data from the Monitor of Engagement with the Natural Environment:MENE survey to produce their findings, investigating the characteristics of more than 326,000 nature-based visits from 2009 to 2016. They analysed the number of trips people made to different environments and what they did when they were there.

Based on this data, they could, then, estimate patterns at a national scale.
 
Study Highlights
271 million recreational visits are made to coastal environments, beaches and coastlines, each year.
171.7 million annual recreational visits to beaches in England each year.
24% of all visits to beaches, 41.4 million visits, involved sunbathing or paddling, the most popular water-based recreational activity undertaken at beaches.
Other water-based activities were undertaken substantially less often with swimming outdoors taking place on 05.6 million visits, water sports on 03.7 million visits and fishing on 01.8 million visits.
99.3 million visits were made to ‘other coastline’ environments each year, such as cliff paths for example.
‘Sunbathing or paddling’ was the most popular water-based activity at the coast, undertaken on 11.1 million visits.

In both coastal settings, the most popular activities undertaken were walking, either with or without a dog, conducted on 123.7 million beach visits annually and on 78.2 million other coastline visits.

This work was conducted as part of the Blue Health Project project which received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 666773.

Being Part of a Community Group Could Protect You From Cognitive Decline

 

|| December 03: 2016: University of Southampton News || ά. Social engagement through civic group activities is associated with better cognitive function at age 50, according to a study by researchers at the University of Southampton. The study, which is published in BMC Psychology and included 9,119 men and women from England, Scotland and Wales, found that a person’s participation in civic activities such as being a member of a political party, an environmental group, neighbourhood watch, a voluntary service group or other community based groups, at ages 33 and 50 was associated with better cognitive function at age 50.

Additionally a person’s cognitive ability at age 11; frequent physical activity; higher educational qualification and female gender were also associated with better cognitive function at age 50. Having low socio-economic status as a child and reporting worse mental well-being in adulthood were both associated with worse cognitive function at age 50. Professor Ann Bowling, lead author of the study, said, “While the associations between adult social engagement and cognitive function at age 50 we found were moderate, they persisted after we adjusted for covariates, such as health, socio-economic status and gender.

The implication is that if people continue to engage socially throughout life, maintaining related behaviours that require cognitive skills such as memory, attention and control, there may be some protection from cognitive decline. Public health policy interventions aimed at promoting cognitive health could include encouraging civic engagement and providing people with opportunities for this.”

Previous research has suggested that social integration, social engagement and strong social networks may be associated with better cognitive outcomes. Furthermore, social capital, opportunities within communities for social, leisure, recreational activities, voluntary work or group membership, have been shown to be associated with enhanced wellbeing and better reported mental health, as well as reduced levels of stress, loneliness and isolation. However, few of these studies followed participants throughout their life.

To investigate associations between people’s social engagement throughout their adult life and cognitive function at age 50, the study used data from the British National Child Development Study:NCDS, a general population sample in England, Scotland and Wales. Baseline data was collected at birth in 1958 and study participants were followed up at several points later in life.

At age 33, 83 per cent of all respondents reported that they did not participate in any civic organisation. This number dropped to 64 per cent at age 50. Participating in one civic organisation was reported by 14 per cent of respondents at age 33 and by 25 per cent at age 50. Out of the overall sample, 8,129 participants completed cognitive tests at ages 11, reading, writing, maths, and general ability tests and 50, memory and visual attention, speed and concentration tests.

The researchers found that almost a third of the sample population’s cognitive ability deteriorated between ages 11 and 50, while remaining unchanged in less than half of participants, 44 per cent.

A quarter of participants showed improved cognitive ability at age 50. Those who reported that they participated in civic groups at age 33 and 50 scored higher in cognitive tests. Also, participation in each additional civic group was found to further increase scores on cognitive tests.

The present study used a large, longitudinal cohort with strong initial response rates, allowing the researchers to take into account complex interactions between social and biological processes and to adjust for various confounding factors. However, observational studies like this one cannot show cause and effect, but can describe possible links. ω.

A Tree Mushroom

 

|| August 10: 2016 || ά. Stay open and keep open and let the earth's bounties open towards you. If you are, you will be enriched by what come across your way and receive them as gifts. Here's a mushroom that the earth has grown on another of her growth, on a tree. Just look at the magnanimous work of nature and do not forget to praise. What is most awe-inspiring in this joy that the earth has produced is its precision-use of irregularity where the shape has been crafted which does not become a regular shape but uses the irregularity into a form of absolute perfection. ω.

Professor Taina Rantanen Awarded €2.04 Million for New Research to Challenge Old Ways of Looking at Ageing

 

|| June 12: 2016: University of Jyväskylä News || ά.  Professor Taina Rantanen at the Gerontology Research Centre, the University of Jyväskylä, Finland has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant Funding of  €2.04 Million over spread over 5 years for a research project: Active Ageing: Beyond the Same Old Story.

All too often, policy makers consider active aging as disability prevention and a way to save on health and social care budgets. Such approach represents older people as a burden for society; thus, raising the risk of discrimination and so-called "ageism". But what if we looked at active ageing from a completely different angle?

Professor Taina Rantanen sees active ageing as interplay between ability, activity, ambition and autonomy. By assessing these dimensions and examining factors such as physical and psychological health, resilience, personal skills and environmental support, Professor Rantanen will introduce active ageing as a quantifiable concept, the AGNES scale, for the first time in gerontology.

This approach will allow her to develop an effective active ageing intervention, based on counselling, IT resources and volunteers' support. The AGNES scale will also provide evidence to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed action.

The College of Medicine: What Does It Do

 

|| June 07: 2016 || ά. The College of Medicine is charity working in the fields of making life healthy except without just thinking about pills and doctors and NHS and surgeries but bringing together all kinds of people and professionals so that health is seen as a holistic well being of a person rather than of a 'patient'. It is called the College of Medicine but it is neither a medical school nor a forum or organisation for only people who are involved in the practice 'medicine'. Rather, they say, ''We advocate for a new attitude to healthcare: one which forges partnerships across society, emphasises prevention and a multi-faceted approach and empowers a healthier, happier population.''

Health has nothing to do with the NHS or medicines or pills or therapeutics: health means one is well balanced and in harmony and at homeostasis and that one does not need any other intervention to remain and maintain that state of homeostasis. If one fails in doing this, being at and maintaining that state of homeostasis than one is in trouble and one is not in health but in 'ill-health' and that is where and when the NHS and medicine come in. Therefore, unless we look at the way we approach and understand health we are going to continue to see and demand that the NHS and Medicine just cure us from all ill-health and offer us some pills or other to get us healthy. They cannot do that and only, we as a society and as communities, as individuals and as families can change the culture and the way we live so that we live seeking to achieve and maintain a state of homeostasis so that we are in health and not in ill-health.

And if that happens not only will we have much more happier and healthier individuals, families, people and communities but also the NHS would be a much better, much stronger and much more resourceful institution because it will 'waste' little of its precious resources and Medicine will have much stronger means to support us who will need their support and interventions some time or other. For there are, in the crudest generalisation, two general classes of medicine: emergency and non-emergency. Not too much could be done about emergencies but a great deal could be done about non-emergencies that involved illnesses arising because of the vary many factors being contributed from one's life style and ways of living as well as diet and nutrition.

That is where organisation like the College of Medicine comes in and it is ever so vital that we seek to create a culture where there is a branch of the College of Medicine in every little parish and village and square of the entire length and breadth of the United Kingdom.

As a nation we eat too much and often do not have a clue what we are eating and why are we are eating what we are, we drink too much that is harmful and we drink too little water that is paramount yet this drinking of little water is getting to a level of becoming a general danger to health and well being and we do hardly do any physical and psychologically stimulating activities and community and social life in REALITY are becoming almost endangered spheres.

Unless we wake up and shake things up, no matter how many trillions of pounds of money are pumped into the NHS, our health problems are not going to get resolved. These 'health problems' are more of social, political, economical and cultural problems than just purely of health. We need a renaissance of getting people, society, communities, professionals working in unison to create that lake of life that supports a culture of equilibrium to sustain and maintain homeostasis.

The College of Medicine is a registered charity in England and Wales whose head office in based in London. And they say:

We advocate for a new attitude to healthcare: one which forges partnerships across society, emphasises prevention and a multi-faceted approach and empowers a healthier, happier population.

We think everyone should be part of the conversation about health, not just a select professional elite.

Founded in 2010, we bring together the experience of senior healthcare professionals and scientists who know the NHS from the inside; the lateral thinking and enthusiasm of the many students associated with the College and – centrally – the powerful voice of all those who receive healthcare, and their carers.

New patterns of chronic illness are emerging in our culture, affecting millions. We don’t think that any one intervention or re-organisation is the answer, but instead want to bring together a patchwork of much broader ideas – from food and exercise, to new science, patient empowerment and integrated health. We want to bring people together to create a more compassionate, progressive, value-based, sustainable healthcare system.

Our Vision

Our vision is to put health in the hands of local patients and communities and the clinicians who care for them.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to inspire and educate commissioners, providers and users with innovative ideas and practical ways of extending care and improving health. Also to encourage the funders, providers and service users of health services to work together to create better health.

Our Beliefs

We believe that a sustainable health service and society can only be established through co-creation with patients and communities as assets in their own health and care.
We believe that the physical, mental and spiritual health of individuals and communities should be a priority that is fundamental to progress and prosperity.
We believe good health is more than simply avoiding illness.

Our Principles

How we create health:-

Health creation extends beyond health services and needs to be integrated with initiatives in all health related areas such as schools, housing and local business.
We must go beyond conventional practice and embrace a wider range of potential treatments and health initiatives, which may improve quality of life and health outcomes. We will create this as a social mission with an equal partnership between health practitioners and patients.

Our Mission

We work with health organisations, practitioners and patients to:

Foster a spirit of equal partnership in health creation
Champion health creation and health creators today
Share evidence and experience that inspires future health creation.
