Tougher Than Leather
Tougher than Leather: Legendary cross between a blaxploitation film and a spaghetti western. Hip-hop group Run DMC must find the drug lord-record company executive who had their friend murdered. The characters collectively encounter stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination within the local dicotomy of Brooklyn in the summer 1986; a critical and objective reflection on cultural tension(s), culture salience, and bias within this snapshot period in American history.
Aphasia is a broad term referring to the collective deficits in language comprehension and production that accompany neurological damage.
Temporal Lobe Neurological Disorders
Memory disruption is a major complicating feature of disease entities causing temporal lobe involvement: infectious, metabolic, neoplastic, degenerative aetiologies, trauma, and cerebrovascular events all play a role. One of the most common temporal lobe disease(s) is epilepsy, along with cognitive impairment. The problem of memory impairment in temporal lobe epilepsy or TLE. Anatomical abnormalities include alztimers and often extend far outside the temporal lobe, as well as extend beyond memory function, and cognitive impairments. There appear(s) to be a connection between cognitive and anatomical abnormalities, one must understand the anatomical architecture of cognitive impairment and how it relates to epilepsy. Some improvement has been made through anterior temporal lobectomy, with efforts made to predict which subject(s) are at risk of adverse cognitive outcomes from the disorder. Surgery on the lobe is also considered a remedy for some candidate(s). Often hippocampus integrity is the deciding factor.
Alternative Head Injury Protocol, Genetic Testing and Brain Scans
1. Abstract Treatment of head injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and chronic traumatic encephalopathy continues to be an emerging and expanding area of research and development to expound and improve upon interventions. Though new emphasis on developing a personalized restorative approach in TBI novel territory, requires a deeper understanding of how nutrition, physical, mental exercise(s), and genetics impact long-term outcome. Recognized genetic factors play a role in determining risk and impact of brain trauma, recovery, presentation, and restorative post-injury properties and outcomes.
Sadly most humans without controls or the EPA would remove most of the hidden less known, yet vital parts of our biosphere unable to grasp the vastness and complexities of earth’s biodom. “... they are vile little creatures that eat bugs, poop and get caught in pool drains ..” nothing more needs to be said regarding Senator Blowhard, or his opinion of Taricha Granulosa or Scaly Backed Newt. One needs an apprentice in fields one is interested in working within, one must also appreciate or apprentice if one is to speak of the future of a creature posed for extinction. Possibly walk the creature's walk before relinquishing it to the confines of oblivion.
Intro E US 031205 Hunting Party The party settles on the adjacent ridge to a12 and j11; opposite of the mountain, separated by jagged cliffs worn by centuries and erosion. The party is on their mission, gathered together in the crux of a fallen tree. Hunting is the only way to ensure animal protein in this time of confusion. In the wake of the fall of CORP minimally unaffected by genetic modified organisms GMO, compounds that have infused themselves with the modified food supply when ancienne scientists thought they were part of the hunger solution. The nordic wind brushes the beards of the group while toques cover the heads of all, containing the body warmth within. A youth looks through the night tech as a small doe raises her head in efforts to sniff out any intruders in the deep forest. The doe and the rest of the herd are calm, for now. The youth moves the drone sight as she rotates its body SUD, the scent of the pack that stalks the herd of white tail, evades her watch.
Scientific Integrity (SI) “... a global leader in climate science for decades in the US. Unfortunately, progress has slowed…”, the divisiveness begins within the first sentence of this article. Talking down to one's audience may have worked with previous generations but as the Policy Pendulum has been uncovered by the vast majority of an audience, pros and cons in balance, with a conclusion, and a possible solution. John Podesta, Bidisha Bhattacharyyam and Bianca Majumber present novel ideas regarding the new POTUS. The US plans, preeminence on the platform of applied science supporting “climate change mitigation and adaptation decision-making of governments and civilian stakeholders”. Why is this a federal conversation when state to state one could rally a conscious, consistent unity of governing each particular state (p36, O'Lear, 2010).
CITY OF THE SUN: OUR GRANDMOTHERS LOST HISTORY
One of the world’s major river systems in size, habitat diversity and biological productivity is the Mississippi River. Equally important as a commercial waterway and US migration routes for both birds and fish. Aboriginals to the continent long lived along its banks, using the river for sustenance and transportation. When early explorers arrived they used the river to extend exploration into the interior and the northern continent fur traders via portage plied their trade on this waterway as several nations vied for strategic points, at various times historically, along this mighty river has remained a portal or gateway into the continents interior (Dempsey, 2020).
