Ruby Laffoon (January 15, 1869 – March 1, 1941) was a politician from the U.S. Commonwealth of Kentucky. He was the Commonwealth's 43rd governor, serving from 1931 to 1935. At age 17, Laffoon moved to Washington, D.C. to live with his uncle, U.S. Representative Polk Laffoon. He developed an interest in politics and returned to Kentucky, where he compiled a mixed record of victories and defeats in elections at the county and state levels. In 1931, he was chosen as the Democratic gubernatorial nominee by a nominating convention, not a primary, making him the only Kentucky gubernatorial candidate to be chosen by a convention after 1903. In the general election, he defeated Republican William B. Harrison by what was then the largest margin of victory
A man with ambition to be better, is a man that is unstoppable. Standing tall, with a book in one hand and his other hand is reaching out towards you. He wants you to come and join him in furthering your education, he wants you to not let the circumstances and odds that are against you; hold you back from gaining higher education. He wants you to do so, at the university he founded himself, he is Dr. William Hooper Councill. The statue of Dr. Councill on Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University, is a direct symbolization and representation of the extraordinary individual that he was. Dr. Councill knew that with education, he could hold power and change the lives of others, and that is exactly what he spent the rest of his life doing and is continuing to do so even decades after his death.

On December 5, 1967, the U.S. enacted Public Law 90-174, which included in Section 5 the "Clinical Laboratories Improvement Act of 1967." CLIA '67 set regulations on the licensing of clinical laboratories and the movement of samples in and out of them across state lines. Laboratories would be eligible for a full, partial, or exempt CLIA-67 license, depending on the laboratory's conducted tests. The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) regulate laboratory testing and require clinical laboratories to be certificated by their state as well as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) before they can accept human samples for diagnostic testing. Laboratories can obtain multiple types of CLIA certificates, based on the kinds of diagnostic tests they conduct. This is very important so that there are no errors and that proper procedures are followed when dealing with patient’s specimen.

RVUCOM’s innovation and robust curriculum, specifically the incorporation of ultrasound training is the key reason why I wish to attend RVUCOM. RVUCOM is one of the few osteopathic medical schools in the country that fully integrates the ultrasound training throughout the entire 4 year program. My keen interest for less invasive techniques arose after working the emergency room as a medical scribe. I was under the tutelage of several ER physicians who all happen to complete an ultrasound fellowship. It was through them, did I realize the simplicity and powers of this technology. It has the ability to quickly assess and identify medical ailments in a matter of seconds, especially in trauma situation. This very experience as a medical scribe

Last time I described to you the city I currently live in, L’Aquila, Italy, a province in the Abruzzo region, by telling you about its history, my family, and my university. This time I would like to share with you the geography, climate, and details of my family’s home. Geographically L’Aquila sits upon a hillside in the middle of a narrow valley called the Valley of the Aterno-Pescara. It is positioned in a way that makes it close to highest Apennine summits, with an elevation of 2,365 feet. Because of the city being flanked by four mountain summits the warm, dry winds of the Mediterranean get blocked and cause L’Aquila to be very cool in comparison to central Italy. Like California, L’Aquila is also known for having many earthquakes. Throughout its history L’Aquila experienced eleven earthquakes, with each
The Edmund fitzgerald was a boat used for hauling iron ore, she set and broke her own record multiple times. On Novemeber 9 1975, the Edmund Fitzgerald was on route to a steel mill near Detroit. They ran into a huge storm, with hurricane force winds and 30 plus foot waves. That very night the ship sank in Canadian waters more than 500 feet deep to the bottom of Lake Superior. The last message the captain sent back to mainland was that they were holding their own and everything was okay. No known cause of the ship sinking has been found but people think that the ship got covered in water from the waves and were unable to stay afloat. There was a crew of 29 people and none of the bodies have ever been recovered.
One of those patients is Louanne, who has been a competitive ballroom dancer for more than a decade. At 82, she is still quick on her feet and hasn’t let two knee replacements or a broken hip hold her back. Despite her passion, her heart couldn’t keep up because of her atrial fibrillation. When the symptoms could no longer be ignored, Louanne’s physicians at the Heart Institute recommended a cardiac ablation. Virginia Mason cardiothoracic surgeons were the first in the Pacific Northwest region to offer patients this new minimally invasive surgery. Her recovery was swift and Louanne is back on her feet again and dancing thanks to her physicians and donors like you!
The discovery of the remains of an apparently miniature hominin species (catalogued as Lb1) on the island of Flores has sparked debate throughout the archaeological community. This species of hominin is unique in a number of aspects and appears contradictory to trends in archaeological evidence and theories about the development of modern humans in that area of the world.
