Proper nouns are 6 letters long compound words except for names of people and some geographic names, which are 8 letters long. Names of complex chemicals and proteins are proper nouns made of two words. Precise biological names of species are made of three words.

Reliabilism Reliabilism encompasses a broad range of epistemological theories that try to explain knowledge or justification in terms of the truth-conduciveness of the process by which an agent forms a true belief. Process reliabilism is the most common type of reliabilism. The simplest form of process reliabilism regarding knowledge of some proposition p implies that agent S knows that p if and only if S believes that p, p is true, and S’s belief that p is formed by a reliable process. Table of Contents 1. a. The nature of the knowledge-constituting link between truth and belief is a principal issue in epistemology. Dating back to Plato’s Theaetetus, philosophical tradition held that knowledge is justified true belief (although it is debatable whether Plato's ‘logos’, often translated simply as account, corresponds to the contemporary idea of justification, and Plato himself found the true belief with logos explication of knowledge wanting).

Lumbar Spine Anatomy Bones The lumbar vertebrae, numbered L1-L5, have a vertical height that is less than their horizontal diameter. They are composed of the following 3 functional parts: The vertebral body, designed to bear weightThe vertebral (neural) arch, designed to protect the neural elementsThe bony processes (spinous and transverse), which function to increase the efficiency of muscle action The lumbar vertebral bodies are distinguished from the thoracic bodies by the absence of rib facets. The intervertebral discal surface of an adult vertebra contains a ring of cortical bone peripherally termed the epiphysial ring. Each vertebral arch is composed of 2 pedicles, 2 laminae, and 7 different bony processes (1 spinous, 4 articular, 2 transverse) (see the following image), joined together by facet joints and ligaments. Lumbar vertebrae are characterized by massive bodies and robust spinous and transverse processes. The pedicle, strong and directed posteriorly, joins the arch to the posterolateral body.

The Cape Shoulder Institute - Shoulder Problems / Calcific Tendinitis Arthroscopic Surgery At the Cape Shoulder Institute, arthroscopic surgery, being a minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment procedure utilising a small, lighted, optic tube, is performed regularly. Many procedures can be carried out utilising this technique, some of which may be undertaken in the consulting rooms using local anaesthesia, most often under ultrasound control. This method thus avoids the need for admission to hospital. Open Surgery Some operations can only be carried out through "open" incisions as it is not possible to perform them arthroscopically. Examples of such operations are a shoulder replacement or the Latarjet stabilization operation. Joint replacement Tendon transfers Stabilization procedures where there is bone loss Rotator cuff repairs Treatment of fractures

Inyternet Archive Is It Safe to Cut Off the Mold and Eat the Rest? There's more to mold than that green, possibly furry patch on the surface of your bread, or the velvety dots found on old fruit. It turns out that the colorful patches visible to the naked eye are the spores , or tiny particles that give mold its color. The rest of the mold its branches and roots are difficult to see and sometimes burrow deep within your food. Because the colorful spores on the surface of your food are just part of the mold, scraping or cutting this part off of your bread or bagel won't save you from eating a mouthful of fungus . "Most molds are harmless but some are dangerous," said Nadine Shaw, technical information specialist at the U.S. Mycotoxins are found primarily in molds that grow on grains and nuts , but can also be found in grape juice, celery, apples and other produce , according to the USDA. To keep mold from invading your food, Shaw gives the following recommendations. Got a question?

Wikipedia Liqueur In the United States and Canada, where spirits are often called "liquor" (pronounced /ˈlɪkər/, with stress on the first rather than the second syllable), there is often confusion over liqueurs and liquors, especially as many spirits today are available in flavored form (e.g. flavored vodka). The most reliable rule of thumb is that liqueurs are quite sweet and often syrupy in consistency, while liquors are not. Most liqueurs have a lower alcohol content (15–30% ABV) than spirits, but some contain as much as 55% ABV. History[edit] Nowadays, liqueurs are made worldwide and are served in many ways: by themselves, poured over ice, with coffee, mixed with cream or other mixers to create cocktails, etc. Some liqueurs are prepared by infusing certain woods, fruits, or flowers in either water or alcohol and adding sugar or other items. Layered drinks are made by floating different-colored liqueurs in separate layers. The word liqueur comes from the Latin liquifacere ("to liquefy"). Liqueurs

Hernia discal lumbar Hernia discal lumbar Verificar la patología discal Verificar si hay compresión radicular Averiguar el nivel de la lesión Consideraciones sobre la hernia discal lumbar Entre el 12% y 40% de la población sufrirá a lo largo de su vida una lumbalgia aguda de origen discal (dolor ciático). Entre el 80% y 90% no requerirá más que dos o tres días iniciales de reposo y unas semanas de terapia farmacológica, en las que se recomienda mantenerse activo. En la actualidad no es posible establecer con seguridad la historia natural de la hernia discal, ya que todos los enfermos son tratados de alguna manera y hay que aceptar la posibilidad de que el tratamiento influya en el desarrollo de la enfermedad. Hay evidencia de que la hernia puede disminuir de tamaño o incluso desaparecer en el curso de pocos meses, incluso en los casos de hernia extruida o migratoria. Con el tratamiento quirúrgico, en los 2 ó 3 primeros meses hay resultados satisfactorios en alrededor del 85% de casos. Conclusiones
