I was already familiar with 40 Something Mag because I have been a member of Scoreland for years and they are part of that family. So when I saw the site I knew I had to join and at least give it a chance. And man I am glad I did. I am not sure how but these guys manage to find some of the hottet forty-something babes that I have ever seen. And I mean some of them have bodies like twenty-year olds that I just want to jump on and ravage for as long as possible. I like the women and I like everything about the site, I just wish it was bigger overall.
GreenScreen List Translator scores chemicals based on information from over 40 hazard lists developed by authoritative scientific bodies convened by international, national and state governmental agencies and NGOs. The list includes REACH categorizations and chemical hazard classifications by countries using the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
Each of the lists specified for inclusion in the tool is mapped to hazard classifications, a hazard level or range, and a List Translator score. List Translator scores identify chemicals of highest concern to human health or the environment.
GreenScreen List Translator is one part of the GreenScreen Hazard Assessment Guidance v1.3, which details how to apply GreenScreen in assigning Benchmark scores for a chemical based on its inherent hazards.
Sensation seeking is a biologically based personality trait that is characterized by the need to seek a variety of sensations and experiences and the willingness to take risks to achieve them. There is a large volume of literature on sensation seeking that delineates important conceptual and operational distinctions, including several prominent measures of sensation seeking. Issues related to research design and data analysis include whether researchers treat sensation seeking as an independent or dependent variable, use total scale versus subscale scores in analyses, treat scores as continuous or grouped variables, and consider demographic variables in their analyses. Research may relate sensation seeking to a range of behaviors, from maladaptive behaviors such as substance use and risky sex to more neutral or even adaptive behaviors such as preferences for music and art or preferences for certain careers. Research may establish a genetic basis for sensation seeking and/or associate sensation seeking with neurological and physiological responsiveness. Research also explores the associations of sensation seeking to perceptions of risk, as well as the sex and age of individuals and groups in an international context.
Sensation seeking is composed of four dimensions: thrill and adventure seeking (TAS), experience seeking (ES), disinhibition (Dis), and boredom susceptibility (BS). TAS may be the most prototypical dimension, related to high-sensation-value activities such as sky diving, bungee jumping, white water rafting, and, as the name implies, any other thrilling and adventurous activity. ES relates to the desire to engage in a broad variety of experiences such as travel, art, and music. Dis is the dimension most closely associated with alcohol and other drug use and risky sexual behavior. BS is the tendency to become bored easily and, therefore, to have the desire to look for something new and different to do.
Arnett (1994) developed the Arnett Inventory of Sensation Seeking (AISS) to address several concerns he had about the SSS-V. First, he was concerned about the forced-choice format of the questions, which could force respondents to choose between two responses that did not apply to them. Second, he was concerned that some of the items, especially those in the TAS dimension, would not be very applicable to older adults. Third, he was concerned that some of the items involved antisocial or illegal behavior, including behavior that sensation seeking was supposed to predict, thus presenting a confound. Finally, he was concerned that the SSS-V privileged complexity over intensity, the latter of which he considered to be central to the sensation seeking construct. His resulting 20-item scale consisted of a ten-item novelty subscale and a ten-item intensity subscale. Items were on a four-point scale ranging from describes me very well to does not describe me at all. Items were designed to assess sensation in relation to the senses (e.g., taste, smell, sight), as well as overall experiences of novelty or intensity, that could appeal to a wide range of ages and without involving illegal or antisocial behavior. Results from two studies, both involving 16- to 18-year-olds (n1 = 116 and n2 = 139) and one involving a small sample of adults (n = 38), found that the AISS was more strongly related to risky behavior (e.g., reckless driving, risky sexual behavior, substance use, theft) than the SSS-V; further, AISS scores showed similar relationships to sex and age as the SSS-V, with males scoring higher than females and younger respondents scoring higher than older respondents.
Sensation seeking is clearly and consistently related to substance use, regardless of the substance. In a study of 3,106 Connecticut high-school students, Leeman et al. (2014) found that sensation seeking was related to cigarette smoking, marijuana use, and alcohol use. In a study of 77 adolescents from a psychiatric clinic and 131 adolescents from general pediatric clinics in Kentucky, Martin et al. (2002) found that sensation seeking was related to nicotine, alcohol, and marijuana use in males and nicotine and alcohol use in females. In a longitudinal study of 764 American Indian high-school students from the western United States, Spillane et al. (2012) found that sensation seeking predicted initiation of daily cigarette smoking. In a study of 257 18- to 25-year-old young adults living on the East Coast of the United States, Shin, Chung, and Jeon (2013) found that sensation seeking was positively associated with illicit substance use in the past year and with polysubstance use. In a study of 4,348 18- to 25-year-old students from six colleges in the southeastern United States, Enofe, Berg, and Nehl (2014) found that users of alternative tobacco products (chewing tobacco, snuff, dip, cigars, little cigars, cigarillos, water pipe tobacco [hookah], snus, electronic cigars) had higher sensation seeking scores than nonusers of these products.
These individual study results are supported by meta-analyses. VanderVeen, Hershberger, and Cyders (2016) conducted a meta-analysis of 38 studies (with 41 independent samples) to investigate the relationship between dimensions of impulsivity (of which sensation seeking is one) and marijuana use in adolescents. They found that sensation seeking was significantly associated with marijuana use and with the negative consequences of marijuana use; gender was not a moderator of these relationships. Hittner and Swickert (2006) conducted a meta-analysis of 61 studies that investigated the relationship between sensation seeking and alcohol use. They found that total sensation seeking and all subscale scores were positively associated with alcohol use.
In terms of career preferences, sensation seekers seem to be attracted to careers that offer different kinds of stimulation. For example, Musolino and Hershenson (1977) found that air traffic controllers scored higher on sensation seeking (overall score and all of the subscales) than civil servants and college students. Goma, Perez, and Torrubia (1988) found that firemen scored higher on sensation seeking (overall score, TAS, and ES) than a comparison group of students. More recently, Glicksohn and Naor-Ziv (2016) found that military pilots scored higher on TAS, ES, and Dis than population norms; pilots also scored higher on TAS and ES than a comparison group composed of VIP body guards, members of bomb disposal and anti-terror units, and ex-military controls. It should be noted that the research on career preferences and sensation seeking tends to be dated and frequently finds unusual or inconsistent patterns of scores on subscales between the population of interest and comparison groups.
Although the behavioral expression of sensation seeking is moderated by environmental and cultural constraints, there is considerable convergent evidence that sensation seeking is genetically based. A study of 442 pairs of identical and fraternal twins by Fulker, Eysenck, and Zuckerman (1980) provided early evidence for the genetic basis of sensation seeking. Controlling for age and sex differences, the researchers found that correlations of sensation seeking were stronger for identical than fraternal twins, and they determined that the amount of variance attributed to the heritability of sensation seeking was 58%. Subsequent studies continued to find support for the heritability of sensation seeking. Koopmans, Boomsma, Heath, and van Doornen (1995) studied 1,591 identical and fraternal twins and compared differences in scores across sensation seeking subscales. They found higher correlations across subscales for the identical twins than same-sex fraternal twins; the lowest correlations were for opposite-sex fraternal twins. Additional evidence comes from a study of twin and non-twin siblings by Stoel, De Geus, and Boomsma (2006). These researchers studied a total of 10,563 siblings (9,220 twins from 4,281 families, along with an additional 1,343 non-twin siblings from a subset of those families) and compared differences in scores across sensation seeking subscales. Similar to the findings of Koopmans et al., they found the strongest correlations among identical twins, followed by same-sex fraternal twins; correlations tended to be lowest for opposite-sex twins and non-twin siblings. 59ce067264
