  • People who pursue careers in Internal Medicine are drawn to the specialty by a love of patients, mechanisms, discovery, education, and therapeutics. We love hearing the stories told to us by our patients, linking signs and symptoms to pathophysiology, solving the diagnostic dilemmas, and proposing strategies to prevent and treat illness. It is not surprising given these tendencies that internists prefer to continue their life-long learning through problem solving. This book is offered as a companion to the remarkable 17th edition of Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine.

  • The statistics are well known and staggering. And yet, in many countries the figures continue to worsen. Each year 500,000–600,000 women die in pregnancy and childbirth. In some parts of Sub–Saharan Africa, 1 in 6 women die in child birth, while in United States the lifetime risk is as low as 1 in 84001. HIV/AIDS statistics tell an equally disturbing story of dis- parity. In parts of Africa, over 35% of the adult population — 1 in 3 adults — is infected with HIV 2. The number of women contracting the disease is also on the rise.

  • On the positive side, there are a chunk of film-makers who have reacted against the stereotypes set by mainstream cinema and have dared to explore subjects from the women‟s perspective. Contemporary films like No One Killed Jessica (2011), Cheeni Kum (2007), Chameli (2003), Ishqiya (2010), Paa (2009) and Dirty Picture (2011) have pictured extraordinary themes and portrayed women as central to the story line. These films have forced creators to take a fresh look at the different roles played by women and introspect into the kind of typecast that was being perpetuated earlier.

  • Some men choose to live in crowded cities;--others are pleased with the peaceful quiet of a country farm; while some love to roam through wild forests, and make their homes in the wilderness. The man of whom I shall now speak, was one of this last class. Perhaps you never heard of DANIEL BOONE, the Kentucky rifleman. If not, then I have a strange and interesting story to tell you. If, when a child was born, we knew that he was to become a remarkable man, the time and place of his birth would, perhaps, be always remembered. But as this can not be known,...

  • In the fourteen years since my first successful diet—at age fourteen—I’ve lost and gained more than 350 pounds. Some people have tried every kind of diet—Weight Watchers, Atkins, grapefruit, Zone, Sugar Busters—and I have, too. I’ve usually lasted about three days on each. My big weight losses—thirty-five pounds, forty pounds, fifty pounds—were usually on diets of my own devising: either extremely low calorie or extremely low fat, the latter of which was introduced to me by my freshman-year college roommate.

  • As she felt a strong attachment to the scenes of her childhood, and an interest in the people among whom she spent the greater part of her short life,--an attachment which is evinced many times in the course of her memoranda,--it may interest the American reader to know that Liskeard is an ancient but small town in Cornwall. The country around is broken up into hill and dale, sloping down to the sea a few miles distant, the rocky shores of which are dotted with fishing-villages; in an opposite direction it swells into granite hills, in which are numerous mines of copper and lead. There...

  • Whatever value this publication may have, lies in the fact that it offers a typical case--a small cross section of the army that freed the slave and saved the Union. The Editor of the Commission's publications has asked me to state briefly something about myself. I am one of the multitude of "hyphenated" Americans, born across the water but reared under the flag. I am a Cambro-American, proud of both designations, and with abundant heart, loyalty, and perhaps too much head pride in both.

  • Achilles tendon is beside a quadriceps one, the strongest tendon in human body. Its name arises from the ancient hero Achilles. His mother Thetis wanted to make him invulnerable by immersing him in the saint river Styx. As she had to hold him his heel remained unprotected and thus his weakest point. This was a cause of his death – he was hit in a heel by a poisoned Paris’ arrow (led by a God Apollo) in the siege of Troy (term “Achilles heel” is so commonly used to describe the weakest point of someone). The name Achilles tendon comes from the story of the siege...

  • The purpose of this entity is not to replace or preclude the enhancement of existing sharing structures, but to expand information sharing to detect and mitigate cyber attacks in real time before they reach their target. Many current efforts provide threat and vulnerability information sharing after the attack has occurred. While this information is still very valuable and, in fact, will help mitigate future attacks, the main focus of this privately led facility is to provide real time defense at network speed. ...

  • When Edward Temple was about eight or nine years old he was afflicted with a disorder of the eyes. It was so severe, and his sight was naturally so delicate, that the surgeon felt some apprehensions lest the boy should become totally blind. He therefore gave strict directions to keep him in a darkened chamber, with a bandage over his eyes. Not a ray of the blessed light of heaven could be suffered to visit the poor lad. This was a sad thing for Edward. It was just the same as if there were to be no more sunshine, nor moonlight, nor glow of the...

  • This book is dedicated to the many adventurers I have met over the years. Each of these people have shared their stories and life experiences with me and consequently enriched my life. It is for each of them that I offer this book, so that it may be easier for them to find new adventures and so that others can join in our adventures through this amazing world. I would also like to make a special dedication to my father René G. Steinhauer, Sr. He has motivated me toward writing this book and has helped me find my way through the publishing process. He has performed proofreading duties and...

  • Of the historical events that have shaped the character of the specialty dealing with ear, nose, throat, head, and neck disorders, probably none has carried the impact as did the appearance of antimicrobial agents for clinical use. It is a story that continues to unfold even today with the appearance of new antibiotics every year and the continuing emergence of new strains of resistant bacteria. Such change gives our knowledge a short half-life, and perhaps in no other clinical discipline is reeducation as important as in the use of antimicrobials....

  • When we suffer personally, and when we encounter the suffering of another person, we are confronted with many questions. A taken-forgranted and apparently robust future now jeopardized leaves in its place a hollow of uncertainty and fragility. Painfully unsettling, suffering seems to call forth a natural human proclivity to distance oneself from the specter of vulnerability. Understandably there is a tendency for healthcare professionals to protect ourselves from the ravages of suffering encountered in the lives of the persons we care for.

  • The fact that there is a reciprocal relation between mental states and bodily conditions, acting both for good and ill, is nothing new in human experience. Even among the most crude and unobserving, traditions and incidents have given witness to this knowledge. For centuries stories of the hair turning white during the night on account of fright or sorrow, the cause and cure of diseases through emotional disturbances, and death, usually directly by apoplexy, caused by anger, grief, or joy, have been current and generally accepted.
