Undoing the Stress Responseby Caterina Spinaris Tudor, Ph.D.
Imagine being ambushed by a mountain lion while hiking through the Colorado Rockies. As soon as the big cat knocks you to the ground, you automatically go into fighting mode. Your heart rate and blood pressure shoot up, sending extra blood to your limbs so you can have the strength to fight. Glycogen in your liver and muscles becomes converted to glucose to give you extra energy. Digestion stops. Cholesterol is released in your bloodstream to be an additional source of energy.

Back here in the real world, they subscribe to the closest thing to porn they are allowed. What really is there to sit back and PONDER on that?
mudflap: I don’t know of any instance where mail has been withheld from an inmate, with the exception of while he’s on a suicide watch, and he gets all of his mail after he’s removed from that watch.

However, there have been instances where a Seg inmate wasn’t allowed to have newspapers or magazines because of what he was using them for. full thread
