Marcel Proust (1871-1922): reassessment of his asthma and other maladies. (1/49)

Marcel Proust endured severe allergies and bronchial asthma from early childhood. Those who suffer from the frightening and recurrent pangs of asthma often become dependent on their parents particularly mother; Proust was no exception. In his time asthma was poorly understood by physicians who considered the illness to be a type of hysteria. Decades later, we now understand that the severe, poorly controlled, suffocating episodes of asthma were responsible for the complex persona that Marcel Proust had assumed.  (+info)

The Chinese Nail Murders: forensic medicine in Imperial China. (2/49)

Robert van Gulik was a respected Dutch sinologist and author who first translated a collection of traditional Chinese detective stories into English and then created additional fictional stories based on the same characters and setting in the Tang dynasty. One of these stories, The Chinese Nail Murders, draws on van Gulik's professional interest in law and his knowledge of early Chinese works on forensic medicine. This novel develops a common theme in Chinese detective fiction, murder by a nail wound to the head. The difficulty in detection of this mode of violence posed a particular problem for the examining magistrate because postmortem examination was mostly limited to external observations. This essay compares the development of Chinese and Western forensic medicine in the context of the nail murder motif.  (+info)

Nobel Prize winners for literature as palliative for scientific English. (4/49)

Plagiarism causes a serious concern in scientific literature. I distinguish two types of plagiarism. What is routinely highlighted and discussed is the reprehensible type of stealing another author's ideas and words. This type I categorize as "heterotrophic" plagiarism. A more prevalent and less-discussed type of plagiarism is the verbatim use of same sentences repetitively by authors in their publications. This I categorize as "autotrophic" plagiarism. Though harmless per se, autotrophic plagiarism is equally taxing on the readers. The occurrence of autotrophic plagiarism is mainly caused by the lack of proficiency in the current lingua franca of science, ie, English. The writings of 22 Nobel literature laureates who wrote in English, especially their travelogues, essays, and letters to the press can be used for benefit of improving one's own vocabulary and writing skills and style. I suggest the writings of three literati--Bernard Shaw, Bertrand Russell, and Ernest Hemingway--as palliatives for autotrophic plagiarism in scientific publishing.  (+info)

Shakespeare's chancre: did the bard have syphilis? (6/49)

Shakespeare's obsessive interest in syphilis, his clinically exact knowledge of its manifestations, the final poems of the sonnets, and contemporary gossip all suggest that he was infected with "the infinite malady." The psychological impact of venereal disease may explain the misogyny and revulsion from sex so prominent in the writings of Shakespeare's tragic period. This article examines the possibility that Shakespeare received successful treatment for syphilis and advances the following new hypothesis: Shakespeare's late-life decrease in artistic production, tremor, social withdrawal, and alopecia were due to mercury poisoning from syphilis treatment. He may also have had anasarca due to mercury-related membranous nephropathy. This medical misadventure may have prematurely ended the career of the greatest writer in the English language.  (+info)

'He found me very well; for me, I was still feeling sick': the strange worlds of physicians and patients in the 18th and 21st centuries. (7/49)

It is commonplace today to deplore the dissatisfaction of patients with the physician-patient relationship. Furthermore, historical investigation shows that this problem is not really new. We investigated an important source of patients' views in the 18th century, namely the letters of patients received by the famous Swiss physician, Samuel Tissot, and noted remarkably similar feelings of frustration. Yet the medical paradigms of today and of Tissot's times are considerably different. We propose that the persisting problems in the physician-patient relationship are due to a basic dissonance between the patient's ordinary modes of perception and the systematic way of perceiving reality characteristic of the physician. In addition, they reflect the unavoidable chasm between the ultimately private and singular nature of the illness experience, and the general and anonymous stance of medical theory. This chasm is therefore a permanent feature of the patient-physician relationship, predating the advent of scientific medicine, even if the latter reinforced it. In line with the current medical humanities movement, we believe that the engagement of physicians and medical students with literature and the arts helps them explore, and to some extent overcome, the existential divide between the patient's experiential self knowledge and the systematic, impersonal knowledge that plays a central role in medicine. We suggest a few examples of contemporary fiction that may be relevant and useful in this respect.  (+info)

Paths to and from poverty in late 19th century novels. (8/49)

Late 19th century novels provide graphic descriptions of working and living conditions and their impact on population health, in particular the detrimental effects of hunger, poor housing, environmental conditions, hazardous work and poor pay, smoking and alcohol and crime, but also the transformative possibilities of social and political action. The popularity of these novels helped raise the collective conscience of citizens and illuminated the direction for 20th century welfare reforms. Yet many of these problems remain and the pathways to and from poverty are still recognisable today. Although novels are now less central in conveying social information, re-reading these novels enables us to understand how social and economic circumstances were understood at the time and what led to social and political change.  (+info)

Our Bodies, Ourselves, a succession to a pamphlet of resources pulled from co-ops of women in and around Boston, Massachusetts, was published in New York in 1973 by Simon and Schuster. Retitled from the original Women and Their Bodies, Our Bodies, Ourselves was an effort by a group of educated, middle class women to reinforce womens ownership of their bodies. There have been eight editions of Our Bodies, Ourselves, as well as sequels such as Our Bodies, Ourselves: Pregnancy and Birth and Our Bodies, Ourselves: Menopause. Our Bodies, Ourselves has sold more than four million copies and been printed in twenty foreign-language editions.. The women who collaborated on Our Bodies, Ourselves met at a womens conference in Boston in the spring of 1969 in the midst of the feminist movement in the United States. They formed a group called the Doctors Group. In 1970, the group published Women and Their Bodies which compiled pamphlets and personal stories, studies, and research about womens health. ...
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (March 8, 1841 - March 6, 1935) was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932, and as Acting Chief Justice of the United States January-February 1930. Noted for his long service, his concise and pithy opinions and his deference to the decisions of elected legislatures, he is one of the most widely cited United States Supreme Court justices in history, particularly for his clear and present danger opinion for a unanimous Court in the 1919 case of Schenck v. United States, and is one of the most influential American common law judges, honored during his lifetime in Great Britain as well as the United States. Holmes retired from the Court at the age of 90 years, 309 days, making him the oldest Justice in the Supreme Courts history. He also served as an Associate Justice and as Chief Justice on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and was Weld Professor of Law at the Harvard Law School, of ...
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (Book) : Skloot, Rebecca : Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer, yet her cells--taken without her knowledge--became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first immortal human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than sixty years. HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer and viruses; helped lead to in vitro fertilization, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions. Yet Henrietta Lacks is buried in an unmarked grave. Her family did not learn of her immortality until more than twenty years after her death, when scientists began using her husband and children in research without informed consent. The story of the Lacks family is inextricably connected to the dark history of experimentation on African Americans, the birth of bioethics, and the legal battles over whether we

In 1951, Henrietta Lacks went to Johns Hopkins to undergo treatment for cervical cancer. While she was there, her doctors took a biopsy of her tumor. Although Henrietta would die soon after her treatment, her cancer cells, called HeLa, lived on. Her cells were cultivated in the lab and are still being used to this day by researchers. Henriettas cells have been all over the world, but her family hasnt been able to get much of anywhere outside of the slums of Baltimore. The HeLa cells helped cure polio, but Henriettas family doesnt have health care.. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is a combination of Henriettas story, the story of her family, and Rebecca Skloots own journey trying to uncover the story of Henrietta and the HeLa cells.. Thoughts on the story:. I am incredibly impressed with the way ...
Last fall, I described a book I was highly anticipating called The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. And unless youve been hiding under a rock somewhere, youve no doubt already read excerpts and phenomenal reviews, seen it covered on television, heard Rebecca on air, and watched it climb the New York Times bestseller list during these first weeks since publication. All of the praise is more than deserved, and I would add that the story of Henrietta Lacks, her family, the immortal HeLa cell line, and the many dimensions to the story that Rebecca does such an extraordinary job of reporting, may just be one of the greatest true stories ever told.. Henriettas life wasnt easy. She lost her parents by the age of four and worked hard alongside her cousins on a tobacco farm while facing the challenge of growing up as an African American woman in the south. After marrying young and having five children, Henrietta died at age 31 from cervical cancer. But around the time of her ...

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks examines the mostly unknown story of the woman and her family that experienced just that. Henrietta Lacks will forever be in the history books as the woman who gave us the HeLa cells, but those books do not tell the story behind the origin of those cells. They dont share the economic and social struggle her family endures, despite her cells being bought and sold for research by the billions. Rebecca Skloot spent 10 years researching and getting to know Henriettas family to create this book. Part scientific inquiry about HeLa cells, part medical mystery about what makes these cells immortal, part memoir about the history of the Lacks family, Skloot weaves a tale that I initially thought was fiction and was interested to find out was completely true ...
Marshall Universitys womens studies program will host two events connected with the New York Times bestselling book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Wednesday, March 26, and Thursday, March 27, on Marshalls Huntington campus.. The book, written by Rebecca Skloot, is about Henrietta Lacks, an African American mother of five, who died of cancer in 1951. A sample of her cells was retained without her knowledge or consent. The cells were used in a number of scientific studies and made way for several important breakthroughs.. Medical researchers discovered her cells, known as HeLa, possessed unexplainable immortal properties. Over the past 60 years, HeLa cells have been instrumental in contributing to scientific breakthroughs such as the polio vaccine, in-vitro fertilization, cloning and gene mapping. Her cells have enabled scientists to better understand the effects of the atom bomb, cancer and HIV. In total, HeLa cells have been the subject of more than 74,000 studies, and scientists ...
Many books have clever strap-lines, usually claiming their contents will either change your life or be the best thing you will read this year. Often this blurb is exactly that: a marketing tool designed to grab your attention and pull you in on an over-inflated promise.. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks has such a strap-line: She died in 1951. What happened next changed the world. Rather than throwaway hyperbole though, these tantalising words prove to be stunningly accurate in their claim.. Rebecca Skloots debut charts the history of human cell culture, through one of sciences most important but least remembered contributors.. Henrietta Lacks died on October 4 1951 from cervical cancer. A poor, black tobacco farmer, there was nothing immediately remarkable about her passing. However, the cancerous cells doctors removed without her knowledge changed that, leading to one of the most significant and profitable scientific discoveries of the 20th century.. Henriettas cells were the first ...
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is one of my all-time favorite books. It combines many of my biggest interests: excellent storytelling, well-researched scientific accuracy, and insight into poverty- and race-related social injustice. Skloot is a skilled author who clearly cares not just about the story but about the people involved, and the result is nothing short of a treasure - for both the scientific community and the broader public.. The book tells the tale of the most well-studied human cell line in history, HeLa cells, and in so doing it traverses the complicated history of the actual human lineage these cells are a part of. HeLa cells are named for the woman from whom they were harvested, Henrietta Lacks. They were taken without her consent in 1951, before patient consent was part of the cell line equation. At that time, culturing human cells was still a bit of a Hail Mary, and scientists were woefully unconcerned with the ethical ramifications of actually succeeding in their efforts ...

By Peter Galuszka. Forty two years ago, a feminist group titled the Boston Womens Health Book Collective got together to start researching their own books about female health since they distrusted what they considered the male-dominated medical establishment.. A substantial part of their research had to deal with birth control since the pill had been out for several years although the Roe vs. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision, allowing limited abortion, was still three years away. Their book Our Bodies, Ourselves became a best-seller.. Flash forward 42 years to Virginia. The General Assembly is embroiled in a fiasco over conservative attempts to force-introduce state power into the sexual lives of women through laws that would force women exercising their legal right to an abortion to have ultrasound exams in their first trimester of pregnancy to somehow shame them into not going through with the procedure. Another would declare personhood as being that point when an egg is fertilizer and ...
Already posted this on Rachels blog as well.. Feminist Movement, Our Bodies, Our Votes (Our Bodies, Ourselves; Boston Womens Health Book Collective) and etc.. Mean just look at the history of it. Unsure how to explain the history here. Is it possible to make small deal or do away with it?. As for Im still totally unsure regarding of this and etc.. This isnt going to be review like the other posts/threads that I have done prior to this one. Instead its going to be more of me questioning certain aspects of their work, mainly in US.. Do you think that their work is more liberal stance as opposed being neutral or conservative as what claimed it to be? They have always been non for profit (rallies on private donations) as opposed being for profit (rallies commercial donations or something else along those lines, which I have no clue as to what it is/are).. As for me really never questioned them until now because always looked at their positives as opposed to their negatives. Even though I have ...

Henrietta lacks racism.Furthermore, she lives on in the hearts of her family, who view Henrietta and HeLa not as separate entities, which is the common scientific practice, but as one and the same.

Henrietta Lacks, a poor, married, African American mother of five, died at 31 in Baltimore from a vicious form of cervical cancer. During her treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital and after her death there in 1951, researchers harvested some of her tumor cells. This wasnt unusual. Though Lacks consented to treatment, no one asked permission to take her cells; the eras scientists considered it fair to conduct research on patients in public wards since they were being treated for free. What was unusual was what happened next.. Doctors needed human cells to study cervical cancers progression, but despite decades of effort they had been unable to keep human cells alive in culture. Henriettas were different: They reproduced an entire generation every 24 hours, and they never stopped, writes Rebecca Skloot, a science journalist, in her new book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. They became the first immortal cells ever grown in a laboratory.. They also became famous. Labeled HeLa, they were ...

Im from Tuskegee yall. I swear to you this trailer give me the feels like this movie will have elements of the infamous Syphilis Study that took place there.

TV Review: Oprah Winfrey gives a restrained, heartbreaking performance in the mediocre HBO movie The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
by Leo Damrosch. Yale University Press, 2013. The immensely talented biographer Leo Damrosch (whose 2010 book Tocquevilles Discovery of America was fascinating, and whose 2005 biography of Rousseau was a work of sustained genius) has a monument to overcome in his new biography of Jonathan Swift, and that monument isnt Samuel Johnson, whose dislike of Swift was so reflexive and unremitting that Boswell actually asked him at one point if Swift had somehow personally offended him. The reactions of one bookish autodidact genius to another are seldom plottable, after all, and Dr. Johnson is entitled to his opinions. No, the real monument in this case comes not from one of Damroschs favorite authors but from one of his former academic colleagues: Irvin Ehrenpreis, over the course of twenty years, published his massive 3-volume Swift: The Man, His Works, and the Age and thus raised a veritable Everest in the landscape of Swift studies.. Damroschs book, Jonathan Swift: His Life and World isnt as ...
You may or may not know the name Henrietta Lacks. Her name (at least her last name) has been in the news quite a bit lately. Henrietta Lacks gave us a gift, more than 60 years ago, though she didnt know it.
From the publisher. 1. On page xiii, Rebecca Skloot states This is a work of nonfiction. No names have been changed, no characters invented, no events fabricated. Consider the process Skloot went through to verify dialogue, recreate scenes, and establish facts. Imagine trying to re-create scenes such as when Henrietta discovered her tumor (page 15). What does Skloot say on pages xiii-xiv and in the notes section (page 346) about how she did this?. 2. One of Henriettas relatives said to Skloot, If you pretty up how people spoke and change the things they said, thats dishonest (page xiii). Throughout, Skloot is true to the dialect in which people spoke to her: the Lackses speak in a heavy Southern accent, and Lengauer and Hsu speak as non-native English speakers. What impact did the decision to maintain speech authenticity have on the story?. 3. As much as this book is about Henrietta Lacks, it is also about Deborah learning of the mother she barely knew, while also finding out the truth ...
California State University, Bakersfield, The Kern County Library, and One Book, One Bakersfield, One Kern, invite the community to meet Rebecca Skloot, author of this years community reading project, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. The event will take place on Wednesday, November 6, 2013 at 7pm in the CSUB Icardo Center. Guests will enjoy an evening of conversation with the author, followed by a book signing.. Award winning science writer Skloot became well known writing her first book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - a New York Times best seller. As a young community college student, Skloots interest was piqued when a biology professor mentioned the only known fact about the source of HeLa cells: they came from a black woman named Henrietta Lacks. Skloots curiosity and passion about the woman behind the HeLa cells led to an intensive decade-long research and writing project, resulting in The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks..

Over the last two centuries, Ireland has produced some of the worlds most outstanding and best-loved poets, from Thomas Moore to W. B. Yeats to Seamus Heaney. This introduction not only provides an essential overview of the history and development of poetry in Ireland, but also offers new approaches to aspects of the field. Justin Quinn argues that the language issues of Irish poetry have been misconceived and re-examines the divide between Gaelic and Anglophone poetry. Quinn suggests an alternative to both nationalist and revisionist interpretations and fundamentally challenges existing ideas of Irish poetry. This lucid book offers a rich contextual background against which to read the individual works, and pays close attention to the major poems and poets. Readers and students of Irish poetry will learn much from Quinns sharp and critically acute account. ...
The reputation of John Wilmot, second Earl of Rochester, as a rake has imparted an air of dilettantism to his poetry. By contrast, Rochester: The Poems in Context emphasizes his sharp, restless intellect, a more powerful driving force in his poems than the sensual appetites stressed by previous critics. Marianne Thormählen uncovers his familiarity with, and sly allusions to, events and leading characters in Restoration politics; his awareness of trends in science, theology and philosophy; his acute representations of contemporary mores; and his commitment to high standards in literary craftsmanship. A more complex picture of Rochester emerges: that of a serious artist tackling major issues during a particularly turbulent period in English history. Alongside its literary analyses, the book offers insights into late seventeenth-century culture: religious discord, the position of women scholars and poets, military matters, statecraft and foreign affairs under Charles II, and developments in ...
