Usually symptoms occur with exercise or emotional stress, last less than a few minutes, and improve with rest.4]Shortness of breath may also occur and sometimes no symptoms are present.4] In many cases, the first sign is a heart attack.5] Other complications include heart failure or an abnormal heartbeat.5]Risk factors include high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, lack of exercise, obesity, high blood cholesterol, poor diet, depression, and excessive alcohol.6]7]16] A number of tests may help with diagnoses including: electrocardiogram, cardiac stress testing, coronary computed tomographic angiography, and coronary angiogram, among others.8]Ways to reduce CAD risk include eating a healthy diet, regularly exercising, maintaining a healthy weight, and not smoking.9] Medications for diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure are sometimes used.9] There is limited evidence for screening people who are at low risk and do not have symptoms.17] Treatment involves the same measures as prevention.10]18] Additional medications such as antiplatelets (including aspirin), beta blockers, or nitroglycerin may be recommended.10] Procedures such as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) may be used in severe disease.10]19] In those with stable CAD it is unclear if PCI or CABG in addition to the other treatments improves life expectancy or decreases heart attack risk.20]In 2015, CAD affected 110 million people and resulted in 8.9 million deaths.11]12] It makes up 15.6% of all deaths, making it the most common cause of death globally.12] The risk of death from CAD for a given age decreased between 1980 and 2010, especially in developed countries.21] The number of cases of CAD for a given age also decreased between 1990 and 2010.22] In the United States in 2010, about 20% of those over 65 had CAD, while it was present in 7% of those 45 to 64, and 1.3% of those 18 to 45;23] rates were higher among men than women of a given age.23]Signs and symptomsChest pain that occurs regularly with activity, after eating, or at other predictable times is termed stable angina and is associated with narrowings of the arteries of the heart.
Whenever there is a mass shooting in the United States, it doesn't take long before pundits suggests violent video games might be to blame.But a new report from the American Psychological Association (APA) found there is insufficient research to support that link. It found that there is evidence showing the games increase aggression but not enough to demonstrate that playing the games lead to criminal behavior or delinquency."Scientists have investigated the use of violent video games for more than two decades but to date, there is very limited research addressing whether violent video games cause people to commit acts of criminal violence," said Mark Appelbaum, the task force chair. "However, the link between violence in video games and increased aggression in players is one of the most studied and best established in the field." In reviewing more than 150 research papers, the task force found a consistent relationship between the games and an increase in "aggressive behavior" as well as a decrease in "prosocial behavior, empathy, and sensitivity to aggression" and that this behavior continued for some time.But the task force also found that the video games alone can't explain this aggression.
My goal for this essay was to show how American people will eventually stop enlisting in the military because they will realize that their sacrifices are not truly appreciated by the American public and Government/Military. While researching and writing this essay I realized that the American Military does not focus on returning soldiers and veterans enough.

The work of engineers forms the link between scientific discoveries and their subsequent applications to human and business needs and quality of life.1]DefinitionIn 1961, the Conference of Engineering Societies of Western Europe and the United States of America defined "professional engineer" as follows:6]A professional engineer is competent by virtue of his/her fundamental education and training to apply the scientific method and outlook to the analysis and solution of engineering problems.
Quickstart: Register an app with the Azure Active Directory v1.0 endpoint 2 minutes to read ContributorsApplies to:Enterprise developers and software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers can develop commercial cloud services or line-of-business applications, that can be integrated with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to provide secure sign-in and authorization for their services.

Peterson and Kern 1996 first coined the term in their studies of audience segmentation in the United States (Peterson 1992, Peterson and Kern 1996). These studies stand in close dialogue with discussions in Gans 1975 on mass culture and the relationship between the elite and the masses in the cultural sphere. However, the thesis later received the attention of researchers, in works such as Bennett, et al.
