relationships. Hormonal birth control One such medication is “the pill.” According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 2006 and 2010 62 percent of American women of reproductive age were using contraception. The most common form of contraception was hormonal birth control, used by 10.6 million women. Hormonal contraception refers to birth control methods that act on the endocrine system. Almost all of these consist of steroid hormones, and there are two main types: combined methods, which contain both estrogen and progestin, and progestin

going to incorporate what they learned from the session into their lives. This is the integration we talked about earlier. Some people might be concerned that swallowing a pill to achieve insights into one’s relationship would be in some sense too easy. The sort of thing that, quickly attained, could just as quickly be lost. But thinking of the pill as an adjunct to relationship therapy should help alleviate this concern. It leaves plenty of room for active, nonsuperficial engagement and intentional learning about oneself and one’s partner. As Carol describes the wrap

and pledging critical support for Jacques Chirac. The presidential party strategy worked exactly to plan. This strategy involved not just providing a majority for the President, but also engineering a realignment within the right in favour of the RPR, to sweeten the pill of the dissolution of the Gaullist movement into a much broader conservative party. The 2002 elections represented the first time since 1973 that there had not been at least two major parties on the French right. Right-wing unity paid off handsomely. The UMP won an overall majority (399 seats out of

’s kitchens. Poullemouillet, one of the King’s advisers, declares that Ripaille, the royal chef whose death has thrown the kingdom into turmoil, had carried to his grave the secret of those pills that calmed one’s appetite, which he had distributed to the starving masses (Marinetti 1905: 25). Although the concept of artificial feeding through pills exists in both works, the pills envisaged in Le Roi Bombance did not have a transformative power on the lives of the citizens. These pills merely calmed the appetites of the Bourdes but did not have the effect of providing

of a date is one of the most poignant moments in the film –​ and justifiably repulsed by the aggressiveness of her real gentleman caller, she is ready to pull down the curtains on her life and take enough sleeping pills to knock out all of New Jersey, as Stella notes. Hearing the song, though, makes her change her mind, put down the pills and open the curtains. The rest of her story is told elliptically, but the later vignettes are revealing: she is briefly seen rushing to look out to the courtyard, concerned by Jefferies’ cry for help, a sign that she is now more

Darkness and suicide in the work of Patricia Highsmith

protagonist Walter Stackhouse’s wife Clara in an unsympathetic and cold manner. This character is viewed as neurotic and unstable and is in part based on Ellen Hill, Highsmith’s own lover. She describes Clara’s drug-induced coma in a manner close to her own experience with Hill: Walter could not escape the fact that he had known that she was going to take the pills. He could tell himself that he hadn’t really thought she would take them, because she hadn’t the other time, but this time had been different and he knew it

’s feelings may be in part a function of the fact that in this film, unlike Diabolo menthe , relationships between women are marginalised. Anne’s little sister Sophie has only a brief appearance at the beginning of the narrative (when she offers Anne her piggy-bank savings) and at the end; a girlfriend appears only briefly to give Anne the pill; the Italian anarchist is a rival who steals her belongings; and the woman doctor cannot

sugar the pill of his moral discourse with an engaging ‘historicall fiction’ (LR, line 9), thereby making ‘good discipline’ (line 22) more palatable and accessible to the average reader. Yet to ‘clowdily enwrap’ bare ‘precepts’ with outward ‘showes’ (lines 22–4) is also wilfully to complicate the reader’s task. We need to be alert to sophisticated allegory masquerading as the kind of naïve allegory that (like Prudentius’s Psychomachia ) renders abstractions tangible and distinguishes absolutely between good and evil. Relevant here is what I have described as the

survive infancy. But by 1900, the average family size fell to around six and the trend towards smaller families has continued. In the 2011 census, the average household size in Scotland was 2.19, slightly below the UK average of 2.3. While improvements in child health contributed to greater infant survival rates, there were also massive changes in access to contraception (particularly the pill) from the mid-1960s onwards, while abortion became legal in mainland UK in 1967 (Botting and Dunnell 2000 ). There have therefore been a series of demographic changes that
