White Crane Spreads Its Wings And Snow Rabbit Digs The Earth: Kinetograms Of Contrasting Styles Within Chinese Martial And Meditative Arts Of Taijiquan (T’Ai Chi Ch’Uan, 太极拳) And Qigong (Chi Gong, 气功), Keith Mcewing

Journal of Movement Arts Literacy

Taijiquan is a Chinese martial art that developed in the 17th century from a base of traditional forms from earlier centuries. Now widely practiced internationally, it is promoted as gentle exercise, as self-defense and as movement meditation with significant health benefits. Qigong, consisting of similar movement but intended entirely as a health benefit, has been practiced for considerably longer. This paper discusses the advantages of having Taijiquan sequences or forms recorded with Kinetography Laban/Labanotation over other various memory aids for learning the martial art. It explains the basic principles of Taijiquan and how these can be best captured in ...

Faculty Research 2018

MTOR (mechanistic target of rapamycin) is a widely recognized integrator of signals and pathways key for cellular metabolism, proliferation, and differentiation. Here we show that conditional knockout (cKO) of Mtor in either primordial or growing oocytes caused infertility but differentially affected oocyte quality, granulosa cell fate, and follicular development. cKO of Mtor in nongrowing primordial oocytes caused defective follicular development leading to progressive degeneration of oocytes and loss of granulosa cell identity coincident with the acquisition of immature Sertoli cell-like characteristics. Although Mtor was deleted at the primordial oocyte stage, DNA damage accumulated in oocytes during their later growth, and ...


Spontaneous Splenic Rupture In Polycythemia Vera, Christine Moore, Donald Fleming, Mailien Rogers 2018 East Tennessee State University

Spontaneous Splenic Rupture In Polycythemia Vera, Christine Moore, Donald Fleming, Mailien Rogers

Tennessee Medicine E-Journal

Atraumatic spontaneous splenic rupture is rare and occurs in the setting of spleen pathology from a myriad of causes, including myeloproliferative disorders. Only four previously reported cases of atraumatic spontaneous splenic rupture associated with polycythemia vera exist. We report the fifth case, which also is the first with severe thrombocytosis requiring multiple plateletpheresis despite medical therapy and excellent long-term control. In addition to reporting the fifth case of spontaneous splenic rupture in a polycythemia vera patient, we also review the risks associated with splenectomy in patients with polycythemia vera and therapies that can prevent spontaneous splenic rupture.


Medicaid Expansion And The Opioid Epidemic: Medicaid's Role In A Growing Crisis, Taylor A. Thurston 2018 Jefferson College of Health Sciences

Medicaid Expansion And The Opioid Epidemic: Medicaid's Role In A Growing Crisis, Taylor A. Thurston

Tennessee Medicine E-Journal

It has been speculated that the expansion of Medicaid played a role in the increasing opioid crisis. While Medicaid certainly impacted the epidemic, much of the readily available research would lead readers to believe it outright caused the issue. A more in-depth look into both the crisis and the expansion of Medicaid, as two separate variables, reveals that the blame may be incorrectly placed on Medicaid.

Mother Nature is our greatest teacher in the lesson of patience and new growth. She makes us wait for the sweet moments, but when they come how lucky we are to bear witness to her beauty. She renews life, and breaths fresh air into the dead leaves that winter has plastered onto the ground. She reminds us that with death, comes more vibrant and boisterous life. We just need to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

My Boompa was my mother's father, and my beloved grandfather. He passed away this April just after his 85th birthday. He, and the rest of the family, thought he would make it to at least 100. Boompa was one of the greatest people I will ever meet. Yea, sure, a lot of people say that, but I really mean it. He was the most kind, genuine, empathetic, hardworking man, always taking care of others first. This photo is a picture of the eucalyptus and pussy willows that were in the floral arrangement that laid over his coffin during his ...
