PREFERENCE- The Secretary, in making any grant under this section or any other
grant that is asthma-related (as determined by the Secretary) to a State, shall
give preference to any State that satisfies each of the following requirements:... (Excerpt from Text of S. 1884)
President Obama has the School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act sitting on his desk awaiting signature. Many in the food allergy & anaphylaxis community have seen a lot of buzz about this recently passed School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act. There are many that are under the impression that this Act is putting epi-pen's in their schools. It. Is. Not. Not directly anyways, although the hope is that it would or may encourage it. So what exactly is this Act all about?

In Arizona, AFAA spearheaded the bill that was already signed into law by Governor Brewer, known as SB 1421. SB 1421 at State level, if budget is provided in that school year - mandates Arizona schools to stock general use epinephrine. If a budget is not provided - allows Arizona schools to stock general use epinephrine. Additionally, SB 1421 provides for school staff to administer epinephrine in good faith and have "good sam" coverage. Arizona also ALREADY has on the books a law for self-carry of epinephrine and asthma medications that predated SB 1421.

So how does the School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act come into play and what does the bill language say? Well, it is AN INCENTIVE ACT. What does that mean? Does it mean that every state will now supply and stock epinephrine? No. What this means is that if states are able to "check off" all of the requirements listed in the bill, then they will be given preference for ASTHMA EDUCATION GRANTS. It is not guaranteed that they will receive these asthma education grants, only that they will at least be "top of the list" for preference. So for Arizonan's there is no change in our law here, and SB 1421 stands to provide epinephrine in schools as described above.

Where is the silver lining for the food allergy & anaphylaxis community? That said, it sounds like it doesn't really do much for the food allergy & anaphylaxis community - as it is an incentive for the asthma community. The silver lining here is that many in our community have asthma so it is helpful to them, and if anything it is creating more awareness for  the food allergy & anaphylaxis community.

Use the whole of the terrain of the availed geography of the whole face or like the DJs of old or the pool player a "miscue" (mrcues for a man?) will be the result when trying to probe for further information or in trying to work or find the cause and/or empathize, change or respond to the emotional state.

I managed 31 out of 36 and I couldn't be more surprised. I barely spend any time with humans and my entire life and work revolves around anticipating behavior in animals.

One guesses sometimes at random. Noone looks actually terrified. I did prettywell but gave up mid way as did not think much of the photos as being typical.

You raise a good point. If the pictures had been of different race, would our responses be different?

I'm reminded, after skimming this article and a number of comments, of Detective A. Monk of the TV show "Monk" listing his copious phobias, Number One is fear of this, Number Two is fear of that, Number Three fear of something else, and so on, and so on, and on even more...

It's funny how many people commenting are upset about this test for one reason or another.

Since when do you look at someone's eyes only and not at their face and body language? In person, how can you separate the eyes from the rest of the face? Silly test.

In co-education competition rate is high. Student compete each other to prove themselves better from others. They learn more attentively as they don’t want to be insulted in front of their opposite sex. The company of opposite sex also influences them.
