Do humans “shine” in the sub THz?
Radiometry experiments, performed on human subjects, show that in the vicinity of a central frequency of 507 GHz the emission of the human skin is substantially nonequilibrium in its nature. The intensity of the radiation registered using a superconducting integrated receiver (SIR) , was correlated with the level of the physical and mental stress of subject under examination. This result suggests that human skin may generate sub-THz waves.

Objectives. Arterial blood pressure and serum blood glucose concentration, and the level of anxiety, as determined by the Spielberger test, as physical and psychological markers of stress under “modernization”, were studied in groups of native Siberians: the Khanty and the Mansi.
Results. The fraction of respondents with a high level of anxiety is 64% of the total sample. The average values of systolic and diastolic blood pressure are higher among natives living in large than in small “national” settlements (p<0.05). The arterial blood pressure of town dwellers is even higher. The same patterns are seen in the blood serum glucose concentrations in female samples. The average arterial blood pressure (in males and females) and the blood serum glucose concentration (in females) increases as people diverge from “traditional” lifestyles.
Conclusions. The results demonstrate that “modernization” and urbanization have a serious stressing influence on the aborigines of North Siberia.
The monograph is devoted to the assessment of population health indicators and comprehensive analysis of the factors influencing on the health of indigenous people of Russian North.
The article deals with the emotional burnout syndrome as a problem of personality psychology despite the tradition in Russian psychology to regard it as a result of continuous professional stress and professional deformation. Basing on the analysis of different approached to emotional burnout problem in Russian and foreign works it was concluded that they lack explanatory potential and there is a demand for investigating this syndrome in a broader paradigm. The author provides systemic methodological outlook of the problem and defines its theoretical status. Syndrome of emotional burnout is treated as violation of value-meaning personal regulation that hampers experiencing of higher order values and leads to dissolution of meanings in practical and professional activities. This approach proves promising for explanation of the specific nature of this syndrome as well as for elaboration of preventive measures.
