We all are well known about Steve Jobs his reputed organizations "Apple'. The lesson  from jobs here is that if your ultimate goal is to produce outstanding work, no matter which industry you're in, you must be comfortable with the fact that most of the work you produce you'll have to throw out. Jobs says it best:

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you've got to focus on. But that's not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I'm actually as proud of the things we haven't done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying "no" to 1,000 things.

Whether it's design or business strategy subtraction adds value. Nobody produces all masterpieces. You've got to edit it down and throw away the crappy stuff. Take away unnecessary hardware parts from your computer, unnecessary code and features from your app, unnecessary products from your offering, extra words from your presentation. This is not easy, it takes guts to take away a physical keyboard from a smartphone but the results can be astounding. Throw away the crappy stuff and focus on the good stuff only which targeted.

Public Health / Why Is Children's Mental Health Important?
« on: July 03, 2018, 06:22:35 PM »

Mental health — an essential part of children's overall health — has a complex interactive relationship with their physical health and their ability to succeed in school, at work and in society. Both physical and mental health affect how we think, feel and act on the inside and outside.

For instance, an overweight young boy who is teased about his weight may withdraw socially and become depressed and may be reluctant to play with others or exercise, which further contributes to his poorer physical health and as a result poorer mental health. These issues have long-term implications on the ability of children and youth to fulfill their potential as well as consequences for the health, education, labor and criminal justice systems of our society.

For instance, a boy named Bobby is being physically abused by his father and often acts out aggressively at school. His behavior is a natural reaction to the abuse, but his behavior may also mark the beginning of undiagnosed conduct disorder. His teachers simply see him as a troublemaker and continually punish his behavior. Later, Bobby drops out of school as a teenager because he finds it a harsh and unwelcoming environment and is anxious to leave his abusive home and fend for himself. However, holding down a job is difficult because Bobby often clashes with his coworkers and supervisors due to his aggression. Bobby has also begun to self-medicate by abusing alcohol and has been arrested a number of times for drunken disorderliness. By the time Bobby finally receives a proper diagnosis of his conduct disorder and substance abuse, he is in his thirties and his mental health problems have become deeply entrenched. They will require extensive therapy, which Bobby probably cannot afford without a job that provides adequate health insurance. Things could have been very different if Bobby was referred to a psychologist in his childhood who could have diagnosed him, offered effective treatment, and alerted the authorities about the abuse.

All children and youth have the right to happy and healthy lives and deserve access to effective care to prevent or treat any mental health problems that they may develop. However, there is a tremendous amount of unmet need, and health disparities are particularly pronounced for children and youth living in low-income communities, ethnic minority youth or those with special needs.

Public Health / Gap in Mental Health sevices in South Asia
« on: September 20, 2017, 11:31:57 AM »
Mental health disorders– such as depression, anxiety, addiction, schizophrenia and neurosis – have a serious impact on health: they contribute up to 13% to the global burden of disease (WHO-2008). Low- and middle-income countries  of South Asia especially  Bangladesh experience a higher burden of mental disorders, and yet mental health conditions are often not perceived as serious health.
Now lets see the Mental Health services in Global Health perspectives:

According to the GLOBAL MAPPING OF ACCESS TO SERVICES (WHO-ATLAS-2005)
Europe received highest mental health services (45.6%),where western Pacific Areas (44/4%), America (19.0%), Africa (4.3%) but South Asia (0.0%)
That is in terms receiving mental health services in South Asia including Bangladesh is so insignificant that it is rounded off 0.0%. Our mental Health facilities, services, social stigma to mental, ignorance, lack social awareness are especially responsible factors. Overall medical health services in Bangladesh is satisfactory. However, those who work in Medical Atmosphere also hardly care about the mental fitness. Until and unless we are aware of mental health and possess a sound mental health personally and nationally.  We can not expect our out utmost development.

Research is only the way in University education by which the world can be changed into our expected level. For this,  we, the teachers, first should have a complete research mind, and have to create a congenial atmosphere with available resources and logistic supports and equipment for research as well in our respective fields. In our research work, we need to include some of our enthusiastic students with giving some works and supervising them intensively. With the passage time, students would be able to work independently in a very big project.
