A methodological note on modeling the effects of race: the case of psychological distress
Psychological distress is an important indicator of the mental well-being of the population. Findings regarding racial differences in distress are inconclusive but may represent an important pathway through which disparities exist across a number of physical health outcomes. We used data from the 1994 Minority Health Survey, a nationally representative multiracial/ethnic sample of adults in US households, to examine racial/ethnic differences in psychological distress (n = 3623).

Methods. The study cohort consisted of 15531 discharged patients who had been treated for pulmonary embolism at 186 Pennsylv

L’attachement de Sartre à Venise est profond et durable, mais aussi mystérieux car tout chez Sartre paraît s’opposer à Venise. Sartre trouve à Venise la possibilité de changer radicalement de projet existentiel, d’être « un autre Sartre », d’écrire, à travers une utilisation fréquente de la métaphore, cette espèce de contre-Nausée qu’est La Reine Albemarle ou le dernier touriste, avant d’en sortir, et de revenir à son essai engagé sur Les communistes et la paix.
