New Test Shows If You Are a Shopaholic 

A new shopaholic test could tell if you should leave your credit card at home when heading out to the mall. 

The test makes it clear that there's shopping and then there's over-the-top purchasing that can wreak havoc on a person's life. People who become preoccupied with buying stuff and repeatedly spend money on items, regardless of need, are commonly referred to as shopaholics. Scientists call it compulsive buying. 

The new test was administered along with a survey that revealed that nearly 9 percent of a sample of 550 university staff members, mostly women, would be considered compulsive buyers. Past studies had put the incidence of compulsive buying somewhere between 2 percent and 8 percent 15 years ago, and more recently, at nearly 6 percent, the researchers say. Other research has found that men are just as addicted to shopping as women. 

"We are living in a consumption-oriented society and have been spending ourselves into serious difficulty," researcher Kent Monroe, a marketing professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign, told LiveScience. "Compulsive buying is an addiction that can be harmful to the individual, families, relationships. It is not just something that only afflicts low-income people." 

Monroe and his colleagues found that compulsive buying was linked to materialism, reduced self- esteem, depression, anxiety and stress. Compulsive shoppers had positive feelings associated with buying, and they also tended to hide purchases, return items, have more family arguments about purchases and have more maxed-out credit cards. 

Previous tests for identifying problem buyers are lacking because they depend in large part on the consequences of shopping, such as financial difficulties and family strain over money matters, the researchers note. But for compulsive shoppers with higher income, money matters could be non-existent. 

A dwindling bank account is just one of the upshots of shopping 'til you drop. Others include family conflicts, stress, depression and loss of self-esteem. The shopaholic test is just part of the answer. 

"There needs to be more research not only identifying people who have a tendency to buy compulsively, but also on developing education and self-help programs for people who are buying things they do not need or use," Monroe said. "It can lead to a waste of resources and to deterioration in families and relationships."

Read the text and fill the gaps with the correct sentence (A-F). Write the letter of the missing sentence in the corresponding numbered box provided. There are two extra sentences you will not need. 

A virtuous circle links conversation to the capacity for self-reflection. When we are secure in ourselves, we are able to really hear what other people have to say. At the same time, conversation with other people, both in intimate settings and in larger social groups, leads us to become better at inner dialogue. 

But we have put this virtuous circle in peril. Timothy D. Wilson, a psychologist at the University of Virginia, led a team that explored our capacity for solitude. People were asked to sit in a chair and think, without a device or a book. They were told that they would have from 6 to 15 minutes alone and that the only rules were that they had to stay seated and not fall asleep. In one experiment, many student subjects opted to give themselves mild electric shocks rather than sit alone with their thoughts. 

People sometimes say to me that they can see how one might be disturbed when people turn to their phones when they are together. But surely there is no harm when people turn to their phones when they are by themselves? @ 

But this way of dividing things up misses the essential connection between solitude and conversation. In solitude we learn to concentrate and imagine, to listen to ourselves. 

Every technology asks us to confront human values. If we are now ready to make face-to-face conversation a priority, it is easier to see what the next steps should be. We are not looking for simple solutions. We are looking for beginnings. Some of them may seem familiar by now, but they are no less challenging for that. Each addresses only a small piece of what silences us. Taken together, they can make a difference. 

One start toward reclaiming conversation is to reclaim solitude. Some of the most crucial conversations you will ever have will be with yourself. Slow down sufficiently to make this possible. And make a practice of doing one thing at a time. Think of unitasking as the next big thing. 

A We need these skills to be fully present in conversation. 

In every domain of life, it will increase performance and decrease stress. 

This is easier to do without your phone in hand. 

We turn time alone into a problem that needs to be solved with technology. This is a good thing, because it causes us to reaffirm what they are. 

If anything, it's our new form of being together.

Since we first heard about Omicron, the variant has been found in many countries around the world where it is driving the most dramatic spike in COVID-19 cases we have yet seen. In the UK, there were over 30,000 new cases a day in the one- week period from 14 December. On 22 December, 

cases were nearly double the previous peak seen in January 2021, and Omicron was the dominant. variant. Similar trends have also been seen in many other countries after the arrival of Omicron. 

Shared by Angel of Otto Channel 

The rapid spread of Omicron and the associated spike in COVID-19 cases in many countries suggests that the variant may be more transmissible. This concept is supported by pre- prints that show that Omicron is more infectious and has a shorter incubation period than the Delta variant. However, the rapid rise in Omicron cases may also be due to its ability to evade the protection of vaccine- or infection-induced immunity. 

Both Pfizer and Moderna have stated that two doses of their vaccines are significantly less effective against Omicron. Although a third dose was expected to increase protection, even two doses will likely still provide some protection against severe disease. There is also good evidence emerging that Omicron can evade immunity from a previous infection, even if that previous infection was with Delta or Beta, though it is not known if an Omicron infection would protect against a subsequent Delta infection. Modelling from Imperial College London estimates that Omicron is associated with a 5.41-fold increased risk of reinfection, compared to Delta. 

Recent non-peer-reviewed research suggests that the variant may change where in the body it grows best, with Omicron showing less replication in the 

lungs than Delta but much higher replication in the bronchi. It is possible that if Omicron does not replicate as much in the lungs, then it might cause less severe disease. 

Similar trends are now being observed in the UK, with both Imperial College London and the University of Edinburgh finding a reduction in the risks of hospitalisation with Omicron compared to Delta. In children, data from South Africa shows an increase in paediatric hospitalisations with Omicron. In Scotland there also appears to be a slight increase in the rate of hospitalisations in children with Omicron. None of this data has yet been peer reviewed and our full understanding of the clinical course of the disease and its severity will likely change as new and more full information becomes available over the coming. weeks. 

In addition, it is expected that Omicron infections will still result in approximately 12 per cent of cases going on to develop the long-term debilitating symptoms of long COVID, for both adults and children. At the current level of over 200,000 COVID-19 cases per day in the UK (as of 4 January 2022), that would be 24,000 new cases of long COVID every day. 

A Recent research from South Africa that has not yet been peer reviewed suggests that Omicron may be more immune-evading than Delta, with increased risks of reinfection. This is beginning to be confirmed with laboratory experiments that have shown low to virtually no protection against infection with two vaccine doses. Protection was somewhat restored in people that had an mRNA vaccine booster, though breakthrough infections of boosted individuals have been reported. Imperial College London has modelled the vaccine efficacy of two doses of AstraZeneca as between 0 to 20 per cent, rising to 55 to 80 per cent after a third dose. 

There is a reduced risk of hospitalisation for Omicron compared to the Delta variant. But WHO warns that it should not be dismissed as "mild". An increase in the number of COVID-19 related deaths. because of the Omicron variant has been seen in many countries, especially where vaccination levels are low among vulnerable populations. 

C The four biggest questions surrounding Omicron are: is it more transmissible, is it more immune evading, does it cause different disease and do we need to do anything different to stop it. We do not have definitive answers to most of these questions, as we are still learning about the variant; however, several studies have recently been published as non-peer-reviewed pre-prints that may help to provide some 


D An early report from South Africa has suggested the variant may produce more mild symptoms, a conclusion that has been met with much debate. Recent non-peer-reviewed research from South Africa looked at over 160,000 COVID-19 cases and found that Omicron infections were less likely to result in hospitalisation or severe disease in adults, compared to Delta. However, the authors note that this may be because many of the Omicron cases are reinfections, with immunity from previous infections conferring some protection. 

E Even if the severity of Omicron is lower than that of Delta, we know the variant can still cause severe and fatal illness. With the current rapid rise in cases, even a small rate of severe infections could result in a large number of hospitalisations that threaten overburdening the NHS. 

Part of the reason for this immune evasion and possible increase in transmissibility is the large number of mutations Omicron has. Some mutations in the virus's spike protein are known to affect virus transmissibility and immune evasion. However, many are wondering if some of these mutations in Omicron have changed the severity of COVID-19 disease.

To tip or not to tip, that is the question. And there is the one that causes British tourists more moments of embarrassment than almost any other issue. Furthermore, a handful of London's top hotels have come up with a cunning solution to spare the blushes. They've started adding a discretionary service charge for guests' bills. Despite the hotels insisting that the charge is optional, it is, in fact, disingenuous. We may make tipping embarrassing, but it's far more embarrassing to stand at a reception desk and demanding that the charge should be removed from the bill.
