Cairo Subway Attacks: Explosions Hit 4 Stations, Causing Widespread Panic Among Commuters

Especially when the security situation in the country is so sensitive and the country is on high-alert due to the operation taking place in North Waziristan. Not only did this fiasco challenge the strength of the police, it was in complete disregard of the other residents surrounding the area and the countrys rules. Had the PAT supporters let the police do their job, the situation would not have spiralled out of control resulting in the loss of lives. Being a political party, under the regime of an elected government , whether they like it or not, the PAT has a responsibility towards the nation and the government. Acting out in such a manner demonstrated the height at which supporters of political groups are willing to go in order to achieve their objectives legal or not. Dr Qadri, being the leader, went on to tweet that, The Punjab police is stating they are stopping the innocent workers according to law, they are lying. #StateTerrorism Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri (@TahirulQadri) June 17, 2014 According to Dr Qadri, the officials in power are , Busy collecting the privileges and forgetting that they need to worry about countrys security and sovereignty. As true or false that statement may be, the irony is unmistakable.

El-Sissi led the military’s ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi after millions demonstrated against him in the streets last July. Since Morsi’s ouster, his supporters have staged near-daily protests demanding his return to power. Such demonstrations have usually descended into violence. Security forces have killed hundreds and detained thousands of Morsi’s supporters and in return, Islamic militants have stepped up attacks against the military and police across Egypt. An al-Qaida-inspired group based in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, has claimed responsibility for most of the major attacks, including suicide bombings and attempted assassinations of top security officials. However, other groups believed to be connected to Morsi’s supporters have claimed responsibility for smaller attacks, which have mainly targeted riot police heading to disperse protesters.

Ellie Goulding Suffered Severe Panic Attacks: I Never Wanted to Be Seen as Weak | Ellie Goulding, Magazine | Just Jared Jr.

Heres what the 28-year-old singer had to share with the mag: On suffering from panic attacks in the spotlight: I was torn between that really simple life and this life of madness. My brain was getting all these crazy signals, and Id have these faux heart attacks that felt real. There was so much adrenaline being pumped into my body that, in any normal situation, I felt as if I had to fight or flee. On my way to the studio, Id have to cover my face in the car with a pillow. I couldnt shop, couldnt go outside, couldnt see people, because there were just so many triggers. And I didnt want to tell anyone, because I just felt so stupid. I never wanted people to see me as weak. On dating Dougie Poynter : Ive definitely met someone. You get to know someone who makes you very happy and then you go away [on tour], right when it was just getting somewhere awesome.

Day two?: Panic grips Karachi after firing dubbed an ‘attack’ – The Express Tribune

However, the paramilitary and security forces returned without arresting any of the culprits after two hours. It was not an attack, ASF spokesperson clarified. The firing incident occurred a distance away from the ASF camp. I think, they (militants) wont have the courage now to attack again as we have already been given them a good example of our strength by killing their all men [on Monday]. However, the electronic media termed it another attack in the airport premises, claiming that there had been a breach. It was blamed for creating most of the panic. The media should avoid using the word attack, said ASF DG Azam Tiwana in a joint briefing with Karachi police chief Ghulam Qadir Thebo and Rangers sector commander Colonel Javed.

Coping With Panic Images – Panic Disorder – Anxiety

Adrenaline kicks in when it shouldnt, and causes the body and mind to tense up and feel alert, scared, uncertain, and disorganized. Physiologically, breathing and heart rate increase. Therefore, less oxygen will make it to the brain or extremities, causing brain fog and cold and clammy hands. Anxiety makes you feel like your mind is in handcuffs and your body is disconnected from itself. You feel a complete loss of control, or as if you are losing your mind. This is terrifying, and often causes the individual to feel that she needs to escape or find a comfort zone to return to a less anxious state. An anxiety or panic attack can last for several minutes to several hours.

Now try playing with the picture in your mind. You might want to relax while you are doing this. Close your eyes and bring to mind your panic images. So, for example, if you imagine your heart bursting, try seeing it in new ways perhaps as infinitely elastic, or so strong that it simply cannot burst. Incidentally your heart is designed to beat at different rates. Its only job is to pump blood and your increased blood pressure wont make an iota of difference to its central function. What you are doing with image manipulation is something elite sportsmen and women do all the time. They see their performance in positive ways and this not only changes how they feel but seems to have a positive effect on their actual output.

We did not see who opened fire but we gave them a strong answer, Abbas, who was deputed for security outside the ASF Camp, told The Express Tribune. There was no exchange of fire or attack. However, according to other witnesses, two masked men one dressed in khaki shalwar kameez and another in a pant and shirt came from a nearby slum, Pehlwan Goth, on a motorcycle and fired a few gunshots. Then, fled through the narrow streets towards Bhittaiabad. As the law-enforcement and security forces were already on alert, they took the firing seriously and immediately cordoned off the nearest slum area where the assailants had reportedly gone into hiding. A helicopter was also used for air surveillance. Rangers, police and ASF resorted to firing at every suspicious movement to avert any possible untoward incident.

How To End An Anxiety Attack

Literally. “My grandfather died from a heart attack,” the life coach recounted in a HuffPost Live interview on Thursday. “So whenever I would have an anxiety or panic attack, it would be heightened by that fear that I’m having that exact same thing that took someone closest from me away.” As a result, Vennie refused to travel to places without a hospital nearby and often tethered himself to the parking lots of medical facilities. “I would sleep in my car in the parking lot of a hospital after having an anxiety attack, ” he explained. “Just in case I had another one, [so as to be] in close proximity to doctors and somewhere I could get help.” Watch the clip above to see how Quentin Vennie quelled his anxiety, and watch the full HuffPost Live segment on anxiety here.

For example, sitting in traffic, taking a shower, or right before bed or after waking up can be opportunities for practicing self-care. Find moments in your day when you can practice relaxation techniques and become fully engaged with them.Deep diaphragmatic breathing has a ripple effect on your autonomic nervous system and helps calm your other systems and quiet your mind. It is the first and fastest way in allowing yourself to regain control of your mind and body. Do not try to relax; allow yourself to relax. Slowly inhale for four seconds, and watch as your belly begins to expand and fill your lungs as if inflating a balloon. Gently hold for one or two seconds, and then slowly exhale for six seconds, completely letting go of your tension and worries. Biofeedback, mindfulness, meditation and yoga can all enhance your relaxation response to manage anxiety. Smile and remember that you are in control.

Intense, sudden periods of stress or shock, like a breakup or even winning the lottery, can trigger such a rush of adrenaline that the heart can’t function properly, resulting in heart failure or heart attack-like symptoms. In the case of a breakup or death of a loved one, this has become known as broken heart syndrome. Flickr photo by epSos.de Sheldon Cohen, Ph.D., a psychology professor at Carnegie Mellon University, has been at the forefront of stress research since the 1990s. Early on, he showed that chronic stress lasting more than a month but less than six months doubled a person’s risk of catching a cold. His more recent research has tried to figure out why, and results seem to point to inflammation. It appears that stress hampers the body’s ability to fight inflammation, by making immune cells less sensitive to the hormone that “turns off” inflammation, HealthyDay reported. Flickr photo by anna gutermuth A March study found that, at least in mice, chronic stress impaired the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain involved in abstract thought, cognitive analysis and detecting the appropriate behavior for a given situation. Previous research in mice also showed that shorter bursts of stress impaired the centers of the brain involved in memory and learning, and left the mice struggling to remember how to find their way through a maze.
