This, it can be argued, takes form when the ritual participants are provided with the opportunity to engage with their unconscious habitus and autonomous physiological reactions through embodiment of intimacy.

    Abstract : Purpose/Background: Utilizing proton therapy (PT) for treatment of Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL) has demonstrated favorable features, particularly a reduced dose to organs at risk (OAR) in comparison with photon radiotherapy.

Med rådande brist på grönområden, börjar allt fler platser för stillhet och reflektion försvinna till fördel för ”multifunktionella” miljöer. READ MORE
