Chapter 1: Rockne and the Gipper

Throughout college football history, few teams can match the success Notre Dame has had on the field. Going into the 2012 season, just two schools had won more games than

Notre Dame’s 853. They were Michigan (895) and Texas (857). The Irish had a winning percentage of .731. That was barely second to Michigan (.736). Notre Dame also had

11 national championships and 80 All-American players. That was more than any other school.

Rockne was involved in a little bit of everything during his time as a student at Notre Dame. The Norway native wrote for the student yearbook and the newspaper. He was a part of the school orchestra, too, playing the flute. He played a major role in student plays. And he even got to the finals at a Notre Dame marbles tournament. Rockne was also an exceptional student who graduated with honors while studying chemistry.

It was coaching that gained Rockne his most fame, though. After graduating, he served as an assistant coach for four years under coach

CHAPTER FIVE: The history of the psychotherapy of schizophrenia and delusional states

Slice ePub May 23, 2014

The conventional wisdom, after May (1968) and Grinspoon (1967), is that antipsychotics, alone or with supportive psychotherapy, are the ideal and most cost effective approach to treating schizophrenia. Without antipsychotic medication, many relapse, even with psychotherapy. Klein states that “the addition of psychotherapy to a drug regimen is of no incremental benefit to schizophrenics” (1980, p. 132). May's study has several flaws, however, since therapists were inexperienced and therapy lasted an average of only 49 sessions. This leaves open the strong possibility that experienced therapists over a much longer course might be more successful in the use of a psychodynamic psychotherapy of schizophrenia.

Grinspoon found that in the psychotherapy of schizophrenics with senior therapists twice weekly over a two-year period, those treated with psychotherapy and antipsychotics (thioridazine) did better than those on psychotherapy and placebo; in addition, he found that they didn't fare as well as the state hospital controls who were treated with high doses of phenothiazines. Over the two-year period, Grinspoon found that those receiving psychotherapy were nearly twice as likely to be living out of the hospital as those treatedwith a high dose of phenothiazines. In fact, results from the third year of therapy show that patients who remained in psychotherapy continued to improve, leaving the results of this study equivocal. This study too leaves open the question of whether a more prolonged and intensive psychotherapy might better provide help to these most disturbed patients.

Chapter 9

Fire Marshal


Fire can leave significant damage in its wake, including property damage, environmental devastation, and even death. There are many causes of fires including accidents, weather-related causes like lightning, faulty wiring, etc.

When a fire is set deliberately or occurs due to negligence, police treat it as a crime of arson. Arson is the second leading cause of death in residential fires and is responsible for 500 deaths every year nationwide. Property damage from arson is estimated to cost $900 million each year.1

Arson has always been a crime, but in 1978 it was elevated to the status of Index Crime. In 1982 Congress passed the Anti-Arson Act, which made the crime of arson a permanent part of the Uniform Crime Reports Part I offenses.2 Basically, this piece of legislation reaffirmed that arson is worthy of being an Index Crime.

Other crimes may also fit within the definition of fire-related. These include insurance fraud and crimes where a fire is set to cover up another crime.
