The current study seeks to analyze Muslim experiences of communicative diseases with a focus on the psychosocial impacts and public, communal, and personal responses of Muslim populations throughout history. By examining a selection of plague outbreaks between the 8-19th centuries across the lands broadly defined as the Islamic Mediterranean (Varlik, 2017), the guidelines and coping mechanisms that Muslims extracted from their traditional sources are highlighted. This historical perspective contributes to a better understanding of the psychological and social aspects of pandemics for the Muslim community, specifically for the role played by faith and spirituality as determinants of psychological well-being in Muslims' perceptions and responses. We suggest that such an understanding is especially useful for contemporary mental health practitioners working with Muslim patients through the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The importance of studying civilization diseases manifests itself in the impact of changing lifestyles, on the number of deaths and causes of death. Technology transfer plays an important role in the prevention and treatment of these diseases. Through this, it is possible to transfer new treatments and diagnostics to clinics and hospitals more quickly and effectively, which leads to better healthcare for patients. Technology transfer can also aid in the development of new drugs and therapies that can be effective in the treatment of civilization diseases. The paper aims to evaluate the technology transfer process in the field of civilization diseases, using COVID-19 as an example of a pandemic that requires quick development and transfer of technology. To achieve the assumed goal, we propose a multivariate synthetic ratio in the field of civilization diseases (SMTT-Synthetic Measure of Technology Transfer) to analyze data from the Global Data database. We used sub-measures like SMTT_value (Synthetic Measure of Technology Transfer_value) and SMTT_quantity (Synthetic Measure of Technology Transfer_quantity) to measure technology transfer and put the data into a graph. Our analysis focuses on 14 diseases over a period of 10 years (2012-2021) and includes nine forms of technology transfer, allowing us to create a tool for analysing the process in multiple dimensions. Our results show that COVID-19 is similar in terms of technology transfer to diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and breast cancer, even though data for COVID-19 is available for only 2 years.

The massive expansion of the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has urged countries to introduce lockdowns and set restrictive actions worldwide. The focus of the studies was to determine how COVID-19 induces damage to the lungs in order to find an alternative or adjuvant therapy that could lead to preventing COVID-19 or at least ameliorating it. This paper aims to survey the literature and provide new insights into behavioral and dietary habits that could influence the prevention of COVID-19. Maintaining an adequate mental health status, sleep, and taking moderate exercise are often disrupted in the conditions of lockdown and are followed by weakened immunity. Mediterranean and vegetarian diets are superior to other eating patterns in terms of immunity boosting and fighting COVID-19. Our study showed how adequate hydration, green tea intake, and supplementation with vitamins D, C, and E can increase our chances of avoiding the infection and even help us sleep better. Another focus of the research was on determining what level of hygiene really increases one's chances of not contracting SARS-CoV-2, but this seems a little counter-intuitive at first. Since an immunocompromised state is a familiar predisposing factor for all contagious diseases, maintaining healthy behavioral and dietary habits could be a crucial step in boosting immunity and preventing COVID-19.

'Civilization in Transition' was the theme of the JAP conference in 2021, and also the reality we are facing today, especially amidst the pandemic of COVID-19. From an oriental perspective, within the context of Psychology of the Heart, the author presents his thoughts in this paper, 'Civilization within the heart: the image and meaning of "civilization" and "culture" in Chinese characters'. The meaning of the heart is at the core of Chinese culture, as well as Chinese philosophy and psychology. Most of the basic psychological terms in Chinese characters are formed originally with the images of the heart; even the Chinese character for 'culture' and 'civilization'. C.G. Jung learned Chinese characters, and named them with I Ching symbols as readable archetypes. Today in world affairs we are confronted with highly turbulent and uncertain conditions that threaten any sense of coherent meaning, both personally and collectively. Jung's insights gained from the I Ching and his reflections on analytical psychology are still inspiring us. The images and meaning of the hexagrams which C.G. Jung used: 'Ting' (The Cauldron), 'Bi' (Grace), and 'Chin' (Progress), are the main threads of this paper and presentation, 'Civilization within the Heart', responding to the theme 'Civilization in Transition'.

« La civilisation en transition ¼ est le thème de la conférence du JAP en 2021, et également la réalité à laquelle nous faisons face aujourd'hui, particulièrement avec la pandémie de COVID-19. A partir d'une perspective orientale, dans le contexte de la Psychologie du Cœur, l'auteur présente ses pensées dans cet article « La civilisation à l'intérieur du cœur: l'image et le sens de 'civilisation' et de 'culture' dans les caractères chinois ¼. La signification du cœur est centrale à la culture chinoise, et à la philosophie et la psychologie chinoises. La plupart des termes psychologiques fondamentaux en caractères chinois sont à l'origine formés avec les images du cœur; même ceux pour «culture¼ et pour «civilisation¼. C.G. Jung a appris les caractères chinois, et les a nommés avec les symboles du Yi Jing en tant qu'archétypes lisibles. Aujourd'hui dans les affaires du monde nous sommes confrontés à des conditions hautement turbulentes et incertaines qui menacent toute cohérence de sens, aussi bien au niveau personnel que collectif. Les éclairages de Jung provenant du Yi Jing et ses réflexions sur la psychologie analytique nous inspirent encore. Les images et la signification des hexagrammes que Jung a utilisés: 'Ting' (Le Chaudron), 'Pi' (La grâce), et 'Tsien' (Le Progrès), sont les fils conducteurs principaux de cet article et présentation: « La civilisation à l'intérieur du cœur ¼, pour répondre au thème de « Civilisation en Transition ¼.

'Civilización en Transición' es el tema de la Conferencia del JAP en 2021, y también la realidad que estamos enfrentando hoy, especialmente en medio de la pandemia de COVID-19. Desde una perspectiva oriental, en el contexto de la Psicología del Corazón, el autor ofrece su reflexión en el presente trabajo, 'Civilización en el corazón: la imagen y el sentido de la 'civilización' y la 'cultura' en los caracteres chinos'. El sentido del corazón está al centro de la cultura China, así como también de la psicología y filosofía China. La mayoría de los términos psicológicos básicos en los caracteres chinos están formados originalmente con las imágenes del corazón; aún el signo chino para 'cultura' y 'civilización'. C. G. Jung aprendió los caracteres chinos, y los denominó junto a los símbolos del I Ching como arquetipos legibles. Actualmente, estamos siendo confrontados a nivel mundial con condiciones excesivamente turbulentas e inciertas que amenazan cualquier sentido de coherencia, tanto personal como colectivamente. Las comprensiones que Jung tomó del I Ching y sus reflexiones en la psicología analítica aún hoy nos inspiran. Las imágenes y el sentido de los hexagramas que Jung usó: 'Ting' (El Caldero), 'Bi' (Gracia), y 'Chin' (El Progreso), son las hebras principales de este trabajo y presentación, 'Civilización en el Corazón', respondiendo al tema 'Civilización en Transición'.

Using the ecological civilization demonstration zone as a quasi-natural experiment, this study has explored the effect of it on air pollution in China by employing the difference-in-differences model and the spatial difference-in-differences model, and further tested the political promotion tournament in China by employing the binary logit model. The results show that the ecological civilization demonstration zone has basically and effectively reduced air pollution, except for carbon monoxide and ozone. In addition, the spatial spillover effects of the ecological civilization demonstration zone on air pollution are not only basically supported among the treated cities, but also extremely established in the untreated cities neighboring the treated cities. Furthermore, no clear evidence supports the establishment of the political promotion tournament in China, while local cadres tend to cope with the assessment of higher officials passively rather than actively. Overall, this study sheds light on the coordination of economic development and ecological civilization from the perspective of the career concerns of local cadres.
