United Nations will see candidates vying for the top job of Secretary-General make their pitch to the public from April 12-14 The contenders will each have a two-hour slot each to present their case to the General Assembly which include 193 Member States and Observers the State of Palestine and the Holy See and answer any questions The occasion will be broadcast live on the UN’s webcast site in what they describe as the “job interview in front of the whole world” This push towards transparency is in sharp contrast to previous contests for the role where candidates and the governments backing them usually campaigned behind closed doors There are currently eight candidates half of whom are women hoping to succeed incumbent Ban Ki-moon There is also no deadline for joining the race and according to the Associated Press there are rumors that Vice President of the European Commission Kristalina Georgieva and German Chancellor Angela Merkel could make strong late entries Irina Bokova Bulgaria According to the Financial Times the UN has an informal rotation system for Secretary-General and it is widely expected that the next chief will come from Eastern Europe There’s also never been a woman to take the position and so the 63-year-old Bokova has emerged as one of the favorites The Bulgarian is the first woman to head UNESCO a role she has held since 2009 She was also the former Bulgarian ambassador to France and Monaco and speaks four languages: English French Russian and Spanish Natalia Gherman Moldova The senior diplomat from Moldova is the daughter of the first president of the country Mircea Snegur 47 She served as the country’s foreign minister and worked as an ambassador in numerous European countries According to the Guardian Gherman’s main involvement with the UN has been to push its agenda on development with a focus on human rights and gender equality Igor Luksic Montenegro At 39 Liksic is one of the youngest contenders He is currently the foreign minister of Montenegro and was prime minster of the country from 2010-2012 His pro-NATO and pro-Western stance says the Guardian will not endear him to Moscow Danilo Turk Slovenia Credited as being one of Slovenia’s founding fathers the former Slovenian president served as a UN ambassador in the 90s and worked in a senior political post under former Secretary-General Kofi Annan He has also worked closely with Amnesty International advising on cases involving human rights violations in former Yugoslavia Helen Clark New Zealand The former New Zealand prime minster who held the post for close to a decade (1999-2008) became the fourth female contender for the UN top job She has been head of the UN Development Programme for seven years and is seen as well-suited to handle the pressure that comes from leading the world body Antonio Guterres Portugal The Socialist and pro-European Guterres 66 finished his term as UN High Commissioner for Refugees in 2015 after working at the refugee agency for a decade Prior to that he was Portugal’s prime minister from 1996-2002 The high-profile candidate is seen as a strong contender due to his tenure at the UNHCR sounding alarm bells about the growing migrant crisis Vesna Pusić Croatia The former Croatian foreign minister and deputy prime minister set up the first feminist organization in former Yugoslavia in 1979 and later oversaw her country’s entry into the EU in 2013 The 63-year-old according to the Guardian organized civic society meetings between the Serbians and Croatians while the two countries were at war Srgjan Kerim

and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5)—slated for release this month—has lost a major customer before even going to print Thomas Insel director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) declared last week on his blog that the institution will no longer use the manual to guide its research Instead NIMH is working on a long-term plan to develop new diagnostic criteria and treatments based on genetic physiologic and cognitive data rather than symptoms alone Insel’s pronouncement is the most recent hit in a long barrage of criticism that has rained down upon the latest DSM revision process since it began over a decade ago "While DSM has been described as a ‘Bible’ for the field" he wrote "it is at best a dictionary creating a set of labels and defining each" Although the manual’s strength has been to standardize these labels he wrote "[t]he weakness is its lack of validity" and "[p]atients with mental disorders deserve better" Although Insel’s blog was reported as a "bombshell" and "potentially seismic" NIMH’s decision to scrap the DSM criteria has been public for several years says Bruce Cuthbert director of NIMH’s Division of Adult Translational Research and Treatment Development In 2010 the agency began to steer researchers away from the traditional categories of DSM by posting new guidance for grant proposals in five broad areas Rather than grouping disorders such as schizophrenia and depression by symptom the new categories focus on basic neural circuits and cognitive functions such as those for reward arousal and attachment Helena Kraemer a biostatistician at Stanford University in Palo Alto California who was responsible for field trials of diagnostic categories proposed for DSM-5 says that Insel is right that the NIMH’s new program called Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) is "the direction we have to go" However she says "he’s wrong in saying that DSM-5 is to be set aside" When it comes to validity there now is no gold standard she says "The DSM is a series of successive approximations" Kraemer’s vision is that future versions of the manual will not have to wait 10 to 15 years for revision but incorporate new scientific data from RDoC as it emerges She says that a meeting is scheduled in June to discuss the possibility of converting the DSM into an electronic document that could incorporate those changes "Everybody I’ve talked to about it thinks that’s a good idea" Frank Farley a psychologist at Temple University in Philadelphia Pennsylvania and former president of the American Psychological Association (APA) isn’t convinced that the whole process doesn’t need to start from scratch however The measures of agreement between experts for several of the disorders in the new DSM-5 were "terrible" he says "What it suggests is that we need to go back to the drawing board" In 2011 Farley and colleagues circulated a petition for APA to submit the new revisions to independent review Although 14000 professionals and more than 50 organizations signed on he says "Nothing happened We got a ‘Thanks but no thanks’ letter back" Both RDoC and DSM are necessary says William Carpenter a psychiatrist at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore Carpenter chairs the psychosis working group for the new DSM-5 manual and is one of three external advisers to RDoC On a practical level researchers and physicians need DSM to help characterize and treat patients in the field he says "If you don’t you just have ‘Mental health I II III IV and V’ " On the other hand Carpenter says drug development for psychiatric disorders "has been stalemated for decades" due to our lack of understanding of the biological roots of psychiatric disease "What I would hope for our field is that clinically we get into the habit of deconstructing these syndromes into the specific pathologies that the patients have" such as hallucinations and impaired emotional processing Once we understand the neural circuitry and neurobiology that cause such symptoms he adds "hopefully this will help drag drug companies into trying to make novel discoveries instead of me-too drugs that they’ve lived off of for all these years" Implementing RDoC will present some practical challenges Carpenter acknowledges "This does shift the paradigm" Rather than excluding all study subjects who do not fit a DSM diagnosis such as major depression for example the new approach might include a range of participants with different diagnoses who all demonstrate anhedonia the impaired ability to experience pleasure and might look for underlying brain abnormalities that they share in common "I bet that the rough spots are overcome pretty quickly" Carpenter says "but of course we have to see how well that actually works out" Cuthbert emphasizes that the new system is a framework for research not a diagnostic manual and that it has not yet been tested "It’s a platform to get people moving in the right direction" he says In the meantime the DSM "has been and continues to be very useful in psychiatry" he says For the sake of patients he says "it’s important to communicate that we do have good treatments for mental disorders" Belgrade: Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic had a street named after him in Ub a municipality in central Serbia where he was born a local official said
