Medical students found out where they will be doing their residencies. Like the medical version of the Oscars, fourth-year students at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in Odessa opened envelopes to see where they would complete their training during Match Day.Held in the Caribbean Room at the MCM Elegante Hotel, the national ritual occurred at noon Eastern time Friday. Match Day has played out on medical school campuses nationwide since 1952.About 24 TTUHSC School of Medicine students participated in Match Day and learned where they will be for the next three to seven years for their residencies. The results were sealed in an envelope and opened simultaneously at all of the nation’s medical schools.The process of Match Day is celebrated at the 141 U.S. medical schools accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education. Starting on the Monday of Match Week, applicants are informed whether they have been matched to a residency program of their choice, but the student is not told the name of that program. The same day, the locations of remaining unfilled residency positions are released to the unmatched applicants, information from Texas Tech said.

Twitter By admin – March 16, 2018 Local News National event caps off med student studies WhatsApp Previous articleMan charged with assaulting ex-wife, sisterNext articleTraffic stop leads to pursuit, narcotics charges admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR OC employee of the year always learning Michael Callaway, regional assistant dean of the Office of Medical Education, said these are fourth-year students who are near the end of their curriculum. They will receive their diplomas in May at the graduation ceremony.“That said, most of these students are within a single rotation of finishing their training,” Callaway said.He added that the students were matched at facilities locally and nationwide.“Some of them wound up a little farther down their list than they had hoped. Some students are obviously disappointed. Basically, they still have the opportunity to finish their training, which is the good news. The bad news is it might not have been where they had hoped,” Callaway said.“Most of them will very quickly adapt and be just fine,” he added.He said this was a good group of students with about six who want to pursue psychiatry. Callaway added that is a testament to the work of psychiatrist Dr. Bobby Jain and the new psychiatry residency program.Jarrod Tunnell of Las Cruces, N.M., is one who will pursue psychiatry. He was matched to UT Southwestern in Dallas.He decided on Texas Tech in Odessa after bonding with a secretary during a chat about green chili. She was from Las Cruces, as well, Tunnell said.Texas Tech also offered a combined medical doctor/master of business administration degree that can be finished in four years. Tunnell said the business degree will be useful if he wants to go into something administrative later or into private practice.“I thought the faculty were great, very friendly, a good culture. I was excited when I got accepted and it’s been good,” Tunnell said.He added that he thought his training in Odessa was great.“We have wonderful faculty since we’re here and not in Lubbock. We get more one-on-one training, which has been excellent. The community’s very supportive for psychiatry, especially (because) they just opened a residency program here. But the residency director he’s just very supportive of student learning and just an excellent educator. He did a wonderful job of teaching us and preparing us. I had a great experience and learned a lot. I got to make some close relationships with the coordinators and directors,” Tunnell said.Alice Fa is pursuing obstetrics and gynecology and matched to Texas Tech in Odessa and will be associated with Medical Center Hospital and Midland Memorial Hospital.“It’s been a great program. I obviously came through third year here and had great teachers and a great residency, great teaching experiences and a wonderful patient population. And they have a lot of opportunities for training,” Fa said.Mary Grady, who is pursuing psychiatry, was matched to Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. She is from Oswego, N.Y., in Upstate New York.“I was very excited about the match. I really wanted to go to Maine. I did an away rotation there and I loved it. It’s closer to my family, which is important to me but I love the program here, as well. I’ve been in Texas since I’ve been in high school. I’ve really loved what Texas can provide and the opportunities. I’ll be sad to leave it behind. I loved the teachers here and the attending and the hospitals here were great,” Grady said.Brenda Chavez from Gatesville is going for family medicine. She was matched with Texas Tech Health Sciences Center in Lubbock.“I’m very happy,” Chavez said. “It was actually my first choice.” Alice Fa will do her residency at Medical Center Hospital and Midland Memorial Hospital.

GPL review: 7 things we learned from matchday 2

first_imgIt was the second  matchday of the Ghana Premier League. We saw 15 goals, upsets, 5 home wins , 2 away wins and still no draw.AHMED NUREEDEN IS THE FIRST CASUALTY”That is the nature of the job. If things don’t work out for you, you will just have to resign.My reasons for resigning are personal but the coach must take blame for the poor performance of the players.We need teamwork to win matches not individual play.” These were the words of the first coaching casualty of the Ghana league a day after losing at home to Dormaa. Aduana were expected to blow teams apart after putting together arguably the best attacking talents on the land. Daniel Darkwah, Noah Martey, Yaya Mohammed, Zakaria Mummuni will send shivers down the spine of many defenders but as a team, they have just failed to function. The coach has taken utmost responsibility for this but there could be other issues contributing to their abysmal start. Godfred Saka was stripped off his captaincy and fined a month’s salary. The next coach will need to get his house in order before he can fire this talented side to reach their potential.DID WA ALL STARS GRAB SOME MAGIC FROM SAUDI ARABIA Wa All Stars began the season in rather uncertain fashion. Coach Jimmy Cobblah was sacked prior to the campaign after overseeing a disastrous preseason. Assistant coach Amos Adepa was promoted to head coach role but that was not all. The club embarked on a trip to Saudi Arabia and have returned a different side. All Stars struggled to win away from home last season and in one attempt this season, they have all three points. They did it at no easy ground than Dormaa where Aduana were unbeaten there last season.IS J.E SARPONG ALREADY A GONER?Ebusua Dwarfs became the first team in the league to lose twice in a row in the league. Their coach J.E Sarpong blamed their first defeat on overconfidence but the way and manner they lost their second game was simply abysmal. Dwarfs looked short of ideas, ordinary and a side forgetting what was a t stake. This turn of events simply left coach Sarpong astounded. He could not fathom how a team he has seen through Division One and produce the top scorer there look so wayward on the pitch. He already hinted sabotage on the part of his players and was already contemplating a departure. Their next fixture is against Hearts of Oak that could certainly spell the end for Sarpong’s reign. DISREGARD INJURY AND AGE, BEKOE KNOWS HOW TO FIND THE BACK OF THE NETAfter being rendered useless in their 3-0 drabbing against Wa All Stars a week ago, Eric Bekoe was on a task to prove doubters wrong and he certainly. A brace in their entertaining 4-2 win over Techiman City might have well silenced the critics for a while. The first was a penalty expertly converted but his second was simply amazing. Bekoe already scored a contender for goal of the season rifled the ball into the net well from 30-yards. He left Techiman City’s keeper in no man’s land as commentators will put it. Bekoe might not possess the strength to play all 90 minutes of football but his movement and instincts have not deserted him. He is still a classic poacher and will find the net a couple more times this season.MAHAMA TAKES OVER FROM SAMUDEENSamudeen Ibrahim took over the headlines last week after a scintillating display against New Edubiase but this week belonged to Baba Mahama. The Techiman City playmaker was a delight to watch and despite his side’s 4-2 defeat at the hands of Hasaacas, he left the stadium with many admirers. Just like modern playmakers, Mahama has good feet and close control and a good eye for a pass. He destabilized the Hasaacas backline anytime he had the ball and will cause teams more problem. Just like Samudeen, the main issue will be how consistent he will be over the season and how he can cope with the physical demands of the game. STILL EARLY BUT KENI HAS A PLANJapanese American Kenichi Yatsuhashi was criticized after being appointed with members of his own club doubting his credentials. However, two games in and Kenichi is on course to win over doubters. His main priority was to improve the physical side of a Hearts of Oak team who clearly could not last the entire duration of matches last season. Two matches on and Hearts have won all their two matches in the last quarter of games where they have grown stronger. They are not playing eye pleasing soccer yet but they are well structured. From the words of Kenichi himself, the team is still improving and they will be a delight to watch when they grasp all his concepts.BUT ERIC KUMI NEED TO BE FLOGGED Attacker Eric Kumi fetched Hearts second goal and assisted the first but his behavior after the second goal needs much talking to. Kumi got booked a few minutes before scoring and when he finally scored, he took off his jersey to receive a second caution. This goal was not winning Hearts the CAF Champions League neither was it winning the Phobians the league nor was it a go ahead goal. Yet he celebrated it by taking off his jersey. You can’t begrudge him for showing much delight on scoring but as a professional he should know better especially when he was booked a few minutes before that. –Follow Kweku on Twitter: @nana_odum.

Paleontologist Spills Beans on Evolutionary Emptiness

first_imgA noted evolutionary paleontologist reviews a new book on evolutionary mechanisms favorably, but gives Darwin skeptics ammo in the process.Kevin Padian, a renowned evolutionary paleontologist, is certainly no friend of creation or intelligent design. When speaking to his Darwin buddies, he feels comfortable enough to be frank about problems. Here are some scraps from the table of his book review in Nature, “Evolution: Parallel lives,” a review of Improbable Destinies: Fate, Chance, and the Future of Evolution, by Jonathan B. Losos (Riverhead: 2017). Padian highly recommends the book, but has to make some corrections to views that Losos presents. We summarize some tasty morsels:Dinosaurs were not wiped out by an asteroid. Padian debunks a common myth that Losos perpetuates. The book “goes off the rails” early on, he complains:There is one problem. Some research suggests that dinosaurs had been declining for millions of years before the impact as the climate changed, shallow inland seas receded and returned, temperatures dropped and inland environments destabilized. Their extinction rates did not increase at the end of the Cretaceous; rather, origination of new species plummeted, and so diversity dropped. If there were any dinosaurs left by the very end of the period, they would probably not have succeeded in the cooler, forested world of the Palaeogene period that followed. The Chicxulub asteroid and the large-scale volcanic activity around the same time may have been almost irrelevant to their fates.Mammals did not arise because the dinosaurs went extinct.Neither is it sensible to maintain that their demise paved the way for mammals. Recent discoveries show enormous ecological diversity in Cretaceous mammals, from swimmers to gliders; they rarely topped 10 kilograms at the time, but became larger in the Palaeogene. Just as importantly, they lived in environments quite different from those of the Cretaceous. So stories about “replaying the tape” of evolution can acquire a different cast, given further evidence.Convergent evolution is not a law of nature.We can catalogue examples all day, but is there any real theory of convergence? We cannot assert that some lineages are ‘fated’ to converge on these features. Biological ideas of determinism went out with Jean-Baptiste Lamarck in the late eighteenth century.Natural selection is the Stuff Happens Law.The idea of contingency is perhaps best based on palaeontologist Dolf Seilacher’s theory of constructional morphology. In this, features such as the elephant’s trunk or the osprey’s habit of catching fish with claws rather than beak result from three factors: adaptation (the selective component), evolutionary history (organisms must work with what they’ve inherited) and construction (how the material properties of living structures empower and constrain their form). From there, history takes over. Evolution is not a preordained, inevitable narrative. Neither is it a crapshoot, with random particulates disporting themselves until something works. Rather, it is like the game Monopoly. Where you go next is in part determined by where you are now; who you are is where you’ve been (your acquisitions); where you can go is determined by the throw of the dice, with limited possibilities and probabilities.Padian doesn’t seem to reflect on the fact that Monopoly is played by intelligent minds with a goal. Evolution has no goal or desire to win; therefore, it is a complete throw of the dice (the Stuff Happens Law), where extinction is just as good an outcome as survival, because naturalism is blind, and nobody cares.Padian threw his dice, landed on Chance and got a “Go to Jail” card. He should realize that in Evolution Monopoly, the board is the fitness landscape, and there are no “Get Out of Jail Free” cards in the deck. His only way out is to become a creationist and find grace.(Visited 1,034 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Microsoft & Nokia to Announce Mobile Version of Office

first_imgCognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Related Posts Tags:#enterprise#news#Products Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affaircenter_img 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now steven walling For those who’ve bemoaned the lack of cross-platform mobile support for Microsoft Office, a ray of hope is on the horizon. Microsoft is expected to announce tomorrow a partnership with Nokia to include Office support on its mobile devices. Currently the only devices that have native versions of Microsoft Office are those running Windows Mobile. This deal could see that change for the first time. No confirmation of details has been provided, but it’s likely that this mobile version will be an accompaniment to Office 2010, along with the Web-based suite. Many enterprise users are still devoted to Microsoft in the office suite space, but SaaS competitors like Zoho and Google have begun to emerge as a serious threat. By adding flexibility and ease of access — including through cross-platform mobile support — these services have enticed users who can’t afford to be tied to the desktop. But Office 2010 is showing more and more promise. The release is currently in a limited beta, but features such as the free Web-based version just might reassert Microsoft’s dominance. Microsoft representatives are being tight-lipped until tomorrow’s press conference, but it’s clear from the invitation that a major alliance between the two companies is what’s in the works. Look for an update tomorrow morning after we hear more on the details.last_img read more

Four teams remain undefeated in boys division

first_imgFour teams are vying for top spot in the boys division of the X-Blades National Youth Championships at Port Macquarie.Defending premiers Queensland Secondary Schools Touch, Central Queensland Bulls, New South Wales Combined Catholic Colleges and NSW Combined High Schools remain the only undefeated teams in the competition.All four recorded comfortable wins on day one.QSST won 9-6 against Touch New Zealand under 15s, a 16-4 thumping of Victoria and scored eight touchdowns while NSW Combined Independent Schools were kept scoreless.The Bulls had wins over Victoria (13-2), NSWCIS (11-1), South Queensland Sharks (14-4).NSWCCC and NSWCHS sit on top of Pool B with 14 points.NSWCHS enjoyed victories over NSW Touch Association Development (13-2), ACT Pirates (17-2), and Western Tigers (10-6).NSWCCC were too good for Touch New Zealand under 17s (7-2) then they escalated their attack and scored 35 touchdowns in their next two matches against Tasmania (18-5) and Northern Territory (17-2).That 15-touchdown defeat to NSWCCC hurt NT’s for and against but they remain third in Pool B while South Queensland Sharks are holding the number three position in Pool A.Tomorrow will see two of those undefeated teams go head-to-head.NSWCCC and NSWCHS meet each other on field two at 10.40am in the match of the day.Whoever wins this match will most likely go on and finish on top of the competition, and have the number one ranking heading into the quarter-finals.For more information on the NYC, check out these websites:NYC – www.nyc.mytouchfooty.comTouch Football Australia – www.austouch.com.auOr follow us on Twitter or on our Facebook page.Related LinksFour Teams Undefeatedlast_img read more
