Kidney Sales and Moral Arguments, Janet Radcliffe Richards
The arguments used to justify the conclusion that kidney selling should be prohibited are remarkable. What lies at the root of these emotions, and what relevance should they have in practical decision making? When the kidney selling scandal first erupted in the UK, about fifteen years ago, the response was remarkable for its immediacy and unanimity. Politicians who agreed about almost nothing else joined in rushing to make the practice illegal, and professional bodies instantly declared it out o

Motor Exam: Anatomy: Spinal Cord Lesions
Spinal cord lesions often give UMN signs below the level of the lesion (from effect on the corticospinal tract) and LMN signs at the level of the lesion (from effect on the ventral horn or ventral nerve root). LMN signs are good for locating the level of a spinal cord lesion. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examinatio

Comment on Large Hadron Collider could be world’s first time machine by Pat
It seems this concept generated enough interest that this very topic has become central to the plot of a Japanese anime just coming out this month, called "Stein's Gate" - where a time traveler comes back from the future, and on the internet reveals that CERN discovers time travel and in 2036 the world is a dystopia with CERN it's communist governing body :P But rather than the theory you mentioned here, they go with the theory that the LHC creates a mini-black hole, and while CERN denies it su
