  • Natural herbs for weight loss: recent findings of exercise-dependent augmented effects 

    Alkhatib, Ahmad (OMICS International, 2015)
    Natural herbs have been in use for weight loss purposes since the history began. However, the global obesity epidemic and the rise in obesity-related chronic diseases, including type-II diabetes and cancer, have highlighted ...
  • The nature of emotional support and counselling provision for people with sight loss in the United Kingdom 

    Pybis, J.; Thurston, Mhairi; Dennison, C.; Broom, M.; Miller, A. (Sage, 2016)
    People with sight loss in the United Kingdom are known to have lower levels of emotional wellbeing and to be at higher risk of depression. Consequently ‘having someone to talk to’ is an important priority for people with ...
  • Near and far: banal national identity and the press in Scotland 

    Law, Alex (SAGE Publications, 2001-05)
    Too often study of communicative and cultural processes makes `gratuitous assumptions' about media and collective identities like national identity. This article is a critical engagement with Michael Billig's notion of ...
  • Negative alcohol consumption outcome associations in young and mature adult social drinkers: a route to drinking restraint? 

    Gadon, Lisa; Bruce, Gillian; McConnochie, Fiona; Jones, Barry T. (Elsevier, 2004-09)
    Alcohol ‘cognitions’ were explored using an implicit methodology [Stacy, Leigh and Weingardt, 1994]. In Study 1, an Associations Questionnaire was developed with young adult undergraduates (median=20 years) comprising ...
