In this video we see Sir George Martin, Giles Martin (his son), and Dhani Harrison listening to the mix of “Here Comes The Sun”.
Suddenly Dhani opens the channel with the “lost solo guitar”. And now, with the master track in the background, you can hear how it sounds in music.
That was George Harrison. A true genius.
For medical students the transition to clerkship can be a “shock of practice”. They usually have to get around in a field very strange to them, due to the stress they almost forget everything they have learned the previous 3-4 years. Thanks to Annemarie Cunningham I came across a third year med students blog.
She wrote an interesting post about: Be nice, be humble, be interested: advice received for clerkship. She has compiled some of the wonderful advice that she has received in a list. She also wrote a post about the transition, worthwhile your time to read.
This post will highlight a few of my trepidations; in a follow up post I will share some of the advice for clerkship that I have received from a variety of sources. If you have anything you think I should include please pass it along
At the micro-scale the brain is a mess; a thick tangle of nerve cells connected at synapses. Mapping just a tiny portion of this mess, a few hundred cells, is a huge challenge. You have to wonder if it’s worth the effort. But seeing exactly how brain cells are wired together is giving us new insights into brain function.
The scientists in this video found a new neuron in the retina for detecting movement by combining the mapping of the brain and interpreting the fysiology.
Incredible the possible uses for a 3d printer in medicine. Replacing jaw bones or other facial structures after printing the protheses in exact size, making al kinds of research instruments which otherwise could not be made. Didn’t realize these advantages of 3d printers in medicine before.
Until this morning after meeting with Wouter Sjoerdsma, Medical Device Developer at Erasmus MC, Rotterdam. He also writes a blog: Onderzoeksapparatuur in Dutch.
For more information about the use of 3d pinters and medicine see his blog post in Dutch

Question often asked by relatives when explaining the pros and cons of different treatment options. In order to be able to answer this question one should first have to know the mother since not all mothers are alike…
ZDoggMD aka “physician Zubin Damania, Director of Healthcare Development for Downtown Project Las Vegas, has a plan to fight back against a system that can dehumanize doctors and patients alike.”
Admiring his creativity in producing rap videos about medical subjects, just found out what he’s up to in Las Vegas, playing the top 5 fun games. Impressive project, hope he will continue his health advocacy with his witty and funny rap songs. Reaching out to the new generation.
The following information is an excellent construct with certainly additive value to Healthcare in the Roni Zeiger collaboration findings.
A strong advocate for peer-to-peer collaboration in health care, Roni Zeiger, MD, believes that networks of highly-motivated, well-informed patients and caregivers empowered by emerging technologies are poised to accelerate scientific discoveries and break down existing silos within the medical community. He calls these patients “micro-experts.”
The research took long but he found excellent data to fill his investigation, also he came up with great pointers in his Healthcare plan which helped him way much more than no one ever told him before, and with the micro experts he could understand how the existing silos where working with the advantage of finding a scientific discovery. If you are considering a $500,000 life insurance policy vist the website called Affordable life USA .
He had to think about the Healthcare program, as if you know If you retire before you’re 65 and lose your job-based health plan when you do, you can use the Health Insurance Marketplace to buy a plan. This means you can enroll in a health plan even if it’s outside the annual Open Enrollment Period. On the other side patients suffering from short term terminal diseases, younger ones specially, usually decides to contact viatical settlement providers in order to reach their own personal goals within their remaining time instead of prolonging their suffering to only get a few months life extension inside a hospital.
After all the way he even found a medical treatment that even his own doctors didn’t know, so he decided to recommend other natural medicine like these 10 natural home remedies you can find online.
There are many diseases that can be helped by home remedies, maybe not cure the whole way but definitely increase the health benefits in your body and improve your system, for example with cancer, there are many foods and oils that can help prevent it to expand or to even show up in any case, you can find for digestive disorders, emotional diseases, skin and hair issues. We always recommend to use products from Clear Away Acne they great for protecting your skin.
Now he calls on all patients to talk with one another, know their own health data, and make health care better one e-Patient at a time.
This is what I call good use of new technology. Stanford physician Abraham Verghese, MD, developed the Stanford Medicine 25. With the Stanford Medicine 25, residents and students are taught techniques and skills during workshops and while rounding on the wards at Stanford Hospital. The Stanford Medicine 25 website features videos and descriptions of each of the 25 topics. It includes a series of hands-on workshops teaching 25 essential techniques for examining patients.
In this recently posted video, Verghese donned Google Glass and offers a first-person perspective of how he would approach a patient and begin examining the individual’s pulse and hand.
Read an interesting article in the NYT: A Trip to Camp to Break a Tech Addiction. It’s about an an adults-only summer camp.It was organized by Digital Detox, an Oakland-based group dedicated to teaching technology-addled (or technology-addicted) people to “disconnect to reconnect”, but for those of you who rely on social media to live, then buy a YouTube subscriber army.
The rules of the camp are very simple:
Is it worth while?
But Camp Grounded, Digital Detox’s biggest event thus far, was designed less to be a spiritual journey than a whimsical return to childhood. Campers, who spent $300 for the weekend, were sent maps, instructions and a suggested packing list designed with a self-consciously retro style that wouldn’t be out of place in a Wes Anderson film.
Reminded me of the sixties:
a rigid culture, unable to contain the demands for greater individual freedom, broke free of the social constraints of the previous age
Social media and digital revolution won’t go away, just needs adjusting and for those who can’t work it out these camps seem to be a solution, what do you think?
