This excellent collection of myths and legends in the "oral history" style - either from the mouths of storytellers, or from documents where their words were first captured - presents a wonderful insight into the American Indian spiritual philosophy. The book is neatly organized into chapters from the genesis of the planet and people, through myths and legends emphasizing the social structure, to love stories, warrior myths and on to the final death and afterlife stories.
ON DECEMBER 7, 1940, DURING THE SEASON FINALE AT SOUTHERN
California, Notre Dame coach Elmer Layden charged onto the
field to protest what he felt was a rotten call. But Layden didn’t
stop there. After blistering the refs, he screamed at USC coach
A normally genial man, Layden had finally submitted to the
abnormal pressure of coaching Notre Dame football. This pressure
had increased for nine straight years—ever since March 31, 1931,
the stunning day Knute Rockne died in an airplane crash....
It is difficult to overstress the importance of a good history and thorough
clinical examination for every patient. On this the diagnosis is made and
the treatment plan based. A full, clearly written record of the original consultation
is essential to assess progress following treatment. Particularly
is this true if a colleague should be called to see the patient in the practitioner's
tioner's absenceT. he medicolegali mportanceo f accurater ecords cannot be
Given the virtual absence of formal channels for care and support of the older population, older
Cambodians are dependent largely on their families, and particularly their adult children, for any
assistance needed. Table 7 indicates the number of living children of the current generation of elderly
Cambodians. Although many elderly Cambodians lost children during the tumultuous history of the last
several decades, sustained high fertility has resulted in substantial numbers of children who still survive.
Esthetics (also spelled aesthetics) is a subdiscipline
of value theory or axiology, which is a branch of philosophy
that studies sensory values, sometimes called
judgments of sentiment or taste. Esthetics is closely associated
with the philosophy of High Art. Esthetics
includes art as well as the very purpose behind it. Esthetics
as a branch of philosophy studies art, the methods of
evaluating art, and judgments of art. Art has existed
through all recorded human history. Art is unique to
human beings because of our innate ability to abstract.
The Master of Business Administration will enhance student analytical skills related to management, people,
markets, finance, and technical knowledge. Graduates will be able to solve complex organisational problems
and be able to manage change through the mastery of particular skills related to creativity, information literacy,
and self-reflection. The program focuses on how to demonstrate leadership in global sustainability and how
to understand the nature of ethical decisions across contemporary business practice.
It is proposed by the author to publish the result of his observation on the mythology, distinctive opinions, and
intellectual character of the aborigines. Materials exist for separate observations on their oral tales, fictitious
and historical; their hieroglyphics, music, and poetry; and the grammatical structure of the languages, their
principles of combination, and the actual state of their vocabulary. The former topic has been selected as the
commencement of the series.
Children also need to know that Parkinson’s is not
contagious. They can’t catch it like they can get a cold
or the chicken pox. Older children also may be worried
that, since they’re related to you, they will contract the
disease themselves eventually. But with today’s
research leading in the direction of predisposition
combined with environmental factors, you can com-
fortably reassure them that is not likely to happen.
As unlikely as it sounds to an adult, young children
may need to be told that it’s not their fault a parent
Prevention studies: For women who have a family
history of ovarian cancer, the risk of developing the
disease may be reduced by removing the ovaries
before cancer is detected. This surgery is called
prophylactic oophorectomy. Women who are at high
risk of ovarian cancer are taking part in trials to
study the benefits and harms of this surgery. Other
doctors are studying whether certain drugs can help
prevent ovarian cancer in women at high risk.
Thesauri and ontologies provide important value in facilitating access to digital archives by representing underlying principles of organization. Translation of such resources into multiple languages is an important component for providing multilingual access. However, the specificity of vocabulary terms in most ontologies precludes fully-automated machine translation using general-domain lexical resources. In this paper, we present an efficient process for leveraging human translations when constructing domain-specific lexical resources.
Led by the Pediatric Residency Director, Susan Guralnick, MD, Stony Brook first began implementing
PPHE by enlisting the assistance of faculty members from both the departments of pediatrics and family
medicine. Dr. Guralnick and Dr. Jaffe of Family Medicine arranged for both pediatric and family
medicine meeting and conference days to take place at the same time.
The faculty introduced the program to residents during these coordinated times.
The pre-service teachers in the writing methods course learned about the history of
writing instruction and writing theories, writers’ workshops and the use of various
types of journals. They were also introduced to the role of literature and methods for
integrating oral skills into literacy instruction. In addition to these materials, I
reviewed sample ESL student essays to illustrate techniques for providing feedback
on student writing.
When a consumer applies for employment, or for a service that reviews credit histories,
(such as insurance, an apartment rental, utilities, cell phone accounts) these data users
may also request and receive a credit report and/or scores from one or more repositories,
to be used to evaluate the consumer’ s application.
Because the hair shaft is the chromophore, it is essential that the hair shaft is present in the hair
follicle at the time of treatment. Patients are therefore not allowed to pluck, wax, or have elec-
trolysis for at least six weeks before the laser treatment. Shaving and depilatory creams are al-
lowed because they leave the hair shaft in the follicle. It is important to take a history, including
an endocrine history. Female patients with hirsutism can be treated regardless of the cause.
Patients with a history of herpes simplex 1 or 2 should be put on oral antiviral drugs (Zovirax®
Acute Sinusitis: Treatment
Most patients with a diagnosis of acute rhinosinusitis based on clinical grounds improve without antibiotic therapy. The preferred initial approach in patients with mild to moderate symptoms of short duration is therapy aimed at facilitating sinus drainage, such as oral and topical decongestants, nasal saline lavage, and—in patients with a history of chronic sinusitis or allergies—nasal glucocorticoids.
This study focuses on how teachers are being prepared through the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) at three different universities. Documentary and oral sources, a small survey, focus groups and interviews, provide the basis for an analysis of the context and history of each institution: the profile of staff and students in teacher-education courses; and the ways in which issues of diversity are addressed. A well-grounded set of recommendations provides direction for the road ahead.
Oral lesions were found in 61 (78.2%) cases. Sites involved were inner aspect of the
lips, gums, buccal mucosa, tongue and the hard palate. Small aphthous like lesions measuring
1 to 3 mm were the usual mucosal presentation. Most common systemic symptoms (Table II)
were fever and anorexia. History of mild fever either preceding to or simultaneously with the
eruption was present in 58 (74.3%) cases. Fever appeared on the same day in 70% cases and 1
day before onset of rash in 30% cases. Fever persisted for 1 to 2 days following onset. Sore
throat was a symptom during...
Tobacco smoke is highly addictive and has been linked to 20 percent of all deaths in the United States. It contains many cancer-
causing chemicals, and almost one third of all cancer deaths are related to tobacco use. Tobacco smoking has generally been
considered to have little or no association with breast cancer risk. Newer studies have challenged this conclusion and suggested
a connection between smoking and an increased risk of breast cancer, but more investigation is needed to resolve this issue.
