Study: Photographs Help Ease Pain

via PDNPulse:
more info: http://www.pdnpulse.com/2009/11/study-photographs-help-ease-pain.html
"The findings suggest that bringing loved ones’ photographs to painful procedures may be beneficial, particularly if those individuals cannot be there. In fact, because loved ones vary in their ability to provide support, photographs may, in some cases, be more effective than in-person support. In sum, these findings challenge the notion that the beneficial effects of social support come solely from supportive social interactions and suggest that simple reminders of loved ones may be sufficient to engender feelings of support."

Toronto, Ontario
Companion of the Order of Canada
Raymond Moriyama is one of the world’s most innovative architects and urban planners. His design of the Canadian War Museum—inspired by the resilience of humanity and the environment in the face of the ravages of war—stands as a sombre, yet elegant, salute to the Canadian Forces and to veterans. He has elevated Canada’s reputation for architectural excellence through his signal designs and plans for the National Museum of Saudi Arabia, as well as the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, which serves as a monumental symbol of the Canadian spirit. His architectural legacy will continue to influence and inspire young architects and planners for generations to come.
This is a promotion within the Order.
