Blessed Colomba Matylda Gabriel - in religious Janina - was a Ukrainian Roman Catholic professed religious and the founder of the Benedictine Sisters of Charity. Gabriel studied under the Order of Saint Benedict in Lviv and became a Benedictine herself while dedicating herself to teaching at her old school before she was forced to relocate to Rome in 1900 where she founded her order and joined a Benedictine branch there. Gabriel's beatification process opened in 1983 and she was titled as Venerable in 1990, her beatification was celebrated in mid-1993. Colomba Matylda Gabriel was born in 1858 to nobles. In 1869 she started her education in Lviv under the Order of Saint Benedict at a school attached to their convent and she earned a diploma in teaching. In 1882 she entered the Benedictines and assumed the religious name of "Janina", her novitiate started on 30 August 1874 and she made her solemn profession on 6 August 1882. She was appointed as abbess of her house in 1897, her spiritual director was the Dominican Blessed Hyacinthe-Marie Cormier.

In 1900 she was forced to relocate to Rome and received permission on 3 June 1902 to enter the Benedictine branch at Subiaco. She arrived in Rome in 1900 and went to Subiaco in 1902 to enter the branch before returning to Rome in 1903 for her apostolate. Father Vincenzo Ceresi suggested she found an order and she founded the Benedictine Sisters of Charity with the opening of its first house on 25 April 1908. Pope Pius X and Pope Benedict XV held her order in esteem as did the Italian queen Elena of Montenegro. Gabriel died in 1926; the beatification process opened in Rome on 16 June 1983 after the Congregation for the Causes of Saints issued the official "nihil obstat" and titled her as a Servant of God.

Cudd is one of the founders of analytical feminism, a branch of feminism which seeks to apply the methods of analytical philosophy to feminist issues and topics. She's authored two books and co-edited three more: Capitalism For and Against: A Feminist Debate (coauthored with Nancy Holmstrom in 2011, Analyzing Oppression in 2006, co-edited Philosophical Perspectives on Democracy in the 21st Century with Sally Scholz in 2014, co-edited Feminist Theory: A Philosophical Anthology in 2006, co-edited Theorizing Backlash: Philosophical Reflections on the Resistance to Feminism in 2002.

She has written dozens of articles in peer-reviewed journals, written several encyclopedia articles, many book reviews. Much of Cudd's work analyzes power relationships through rational choice theory. Cudd's analysis of oppression argues that in an objective moral theory it is necessary to know whether or not harms experienced by individuals were indeed actual harms that the person shouldn't have suffered and are thus, in fact, oppressive. Cudd argues that the simple absence of good choices is not a form of coercion - for coercion to occur, objectively better choices must have been available to the subject. Cudd, Ann E..

Mower General Hospital

Mower General Hospital was one of the largest Federal military hospitals during the American Civil War. Located across from the Reading Railroad depot in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia, it operated from January 1863 through May 1865, was closed with the cessation of the war. Built in 1862, the Mower General Hospital complex was designed by architect John McArthur, Jr. and named in honor of Thomas Mower, a surgeon who served with the U. S. Army's 6th Infantry during the Blackhawk War and under U. S. Surgeon General Thomas Lawson during the Second Seminole War. Constructed on 27 acres between Willow Grove and Springfield Avenues, the Reading Railroad line and Stenton Avenue, the hospital complex was configured as a central compound surrounded by a ring of 47 radiating wards and other buildings, had a 3,600-bed capacity, its first commanding officer was Andrew Hopkins, M. D. a surgeon who contracted and died from typhoid fever. Of the 20,000 patients who passed through this facility from the time of its opening on January 3, 1863 until its closure on May 31, 1865, 9,799 survived their respective treatments and were returned to duty and 878 were transferred to the Veteran Reserve Corps.

Another 1,363 were discharged on surgeons' certificates of disability and an additional 3,718 were transferred to other facilities for further care while 1,508 were recorded as having deserted. Despite the grievous wounds and serious illnesses treated here, hospital physicians lost just 257 patients total by war's end; the hospital featured many amenities for the patients and staff, including plumbing to provide hot water, special medical wards that could be isolated for patients with infections, centralized storage for supplies, flush toilets, band music, etc. In addition, while many medicines provided for the treatment of soldiers were provided by regular military supply routes, hospital stewards at Mower operated a small laboratory on the hospital's grounds in which "they prepared tinctures in quantities varying from one-half gallon to ten gallons, fluid extracts." These tinctures, as well as "most of the syrups, ointments and waters of the Pharmacopoeia" were produced in this 14-foot by 16-foot stone building, "ventilated only by an open skylight, using just "a large-sized cooking stove, some of the more ordinary apparatus," but no percolator.

The efficacy of some of their products was questionable since the stewards did not have the "proper means for the nice regulation of heat" which would be used in the evaporation process. The wounded were brought directly from Southern battlefields by railroad—a journey known as "going from the seven circles of hell to heaven."Wyndmoor Station, Market Square Shopping Center, apartment buildings and townhouses now occupy the site.

Some of these companies include the United Kingdom Gambling Commission, the Canadian Nova Scotia Gaming Corporation, the Irish National Lottery, Casino Cosmopol. In early 2007, Griffiths opposed the hosting of a super-style casino in Blackpool, arguing that it "wasn't typical in terms of demographics, that the proposed seafront location was too close to the poorest residential areas of town," and supporting the location of the casino in Manchester. In 2014, Griffiths was featured in an extensive interview with RightCasino.com. In the course of the discussion, he recommended that the commercial gambling industry emulate the Camelot Group, who derive their profits from a comparatively large pool of customers, thus spreading the financial and social impact of gambling losses, he described the proclivity of adolescents to develop addictive behaviours through playing free, casino-style games on social media platforms. He criticised such games as the "number one risk factor for adolescent gambling addiction."

Griffiths' research focuses on the psychology of excessive behavior. His research interests include online research methods, internet studies, behavioural addiction, gambling addiction, video game addiction, internet addiction, exercise addiction, sex addiction, he has conducted research in social responsibility in gambling and teaching and learning in higher education.

For example, he has reported that demo versions and online "skill schools" where players gamble with points rather than money appeal more to teenagers than adults. Furthermore, he has established that factors such as earning points, finding rare game items, fast loading times are more important for video game players than gender and time spent playing.

He has written on egomania, which he defines as an obsessive preoccupation with the self and pandrogyny. In a recent study Professor Griffiths co-wrote conducted a study with Helena Cole, a researcher in the Division of psychology Nottingham Trent University, that explored what the social interactions occur both within and outside of MMORPGs. Griffiths and Cole both conducted an experiment that surveyed 912 players who played MMORPGs across 41 countries; the study showed that social interactions in MMORPGs are a major component in the enjoyment of playing video games. The study showed MMORPGs can be social games, with a vast number of gamers who play MMORPGs making lifelong friends or partners; the study concluded that video gaming may allow players to express themselves in ways they that they might not be comfortable doing in real life because of their appearance, sexuality, or age. This study is one of many that Griffiths has conducted on the topic of how video games affect people. Awards Griffiths has received awards including: US National Council on Problem Gambling Research Award – 06/2009.
