    Amazing Interventions – IR’s role in treating DVT

    my name is Jerry O’Sullivan I’m an interventional radiologist from Galway in Ireland and today I’d like to talk a little bit about the interventional radiological procedures that we offer most of the procedures that we offer our day case minimally invasive state-of-the-art procedures which are very time effective for the patient are typically low risk and are very cost effective for healthcare systems so it is fair to say that interventional radiology represents 21st century surgery deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolus are major healthcare issues and pulmonary embolus on its own kills more patients than road traffic accidents AIDS and breast cancer combined this is a completely underrepresented…

    Judith Butler: Your Behavior Creates Your Gender | Big Think

    It’s one thing to say that gender is performed and that is a little different from saying gender is performative.  When we say gender is performed we usually mean that we’ve taken on a role or we’re acting in some way and that our acting or our role playing is crucial to the gender that we are and the gender that we present to the world.  To say that gender is performative is a little different because for something to be performative means that it produces a series of effects. We act and walk and speak and talk in ways that consolidate an impression of being a man or being…

    Wizarding Wardrobes with Philip Treacy | Warner Bros. Studio Tour London

    My name is Philip Treacy and I’m a hat designer. We designed for everybody from Lady Gaga to Prince Charles’ wife. Movie stars, pop stars, housewives, mums. People want a good hat. Every job challenges you, whether it’s a superstar performing the Super Bowl or a princess going to a royal wedding. It’s all got to work. We deal in illusion and fantasy. There is a magical aspect detached to hats so it was a personal thrill for me as a hat designer to come up the hat for something as iconic as Harry Potter. It’s about as iconic as it gets. Jany Temime was the costume designer on the…

    Top 10 Countries Without Military Forces

    As said by famous French statesman George Clemenceau, “War is much too serious a matter to be entrusted to the military,” and even today, his statement still stands true. While most countries have large military forces that are able to deploy and protect at any given time (the largest and most notable being China, at about 1,600,000 army personnel), some countries have no military at all. Below is a list of ten countries that have no set military forces, each of them with varying reasons why; some because of the country’s history other because of its location. While many people believe that a military force is a necessity, there are…

    Marek Edelman – Signing of the letter regarding the Constitution (44/145)

    [L] The second half of the Seventies, the beginnings of KOR, you sign a letter regarding the Constitution. A letter regarding the Constitution. Well, how could you not sign it? [L] Many people didn’t. But if a little boy came to you, tiny, frozen saying, ‘Please, sir, I’ve got a letter here, could you sign it, please?’ Would you have thrown him out into the freezing cold? How can you refuse a little girl who’s blue from the frost and cold, and hungry? [L] Yes, but later this had consequences and you got involved with working with KOR. Well yes, working with KOR is nothing new, working with KOR is…

    Arizona’s Republican legislative leaders on goals for new session

    – [Lorraine] Earlier this month Governor Ducey previewed some of his priorities at a luncheon hosted by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce. At the same event I moderated a panel discussion with legislative leaders of the House and Senate whom I sat down with separately after the event to ask how they planned to approach this session starting with majority leader’s House Speaker Rusty Bowers and Senate President Karen Fann. We begin with what issues top their agendas. – If there was a priority it be more a concept. You know, focus. Think. And produce. Rather than to get into the peripheral, challenges. Focus on the principles. Stay on policy…

    Lecture 10 – Calhoun, Taney, Dred Scott, and Substantive Due Process

    Video Lecture 10: Calhoun, Taney, Dred Scott, and Substantive Due Process. In your material for this week, you will read about the fall of the Whig Party and the collapse of the Second Party System. You’ll read about the emerge of an anti-slavery third party known as the Republican Party. Throughout the rest of the nineteenth century and onto today, the two major parties are known as the Democrats and Republicans. That should be familiar to you. And one of the most common questions I get as a professor is: are the Democrats and Republicans of the nineteenth century the same as the parties of today? The simple answer is…
