Holland Tunnel - Holland Tunnel It has taken engineers thousands of years to perfect the art of digging tunnels. Today tunnels provide available space for cars and trains, water and sewage, even power and communication lines. However, before cars and trains, tunnels carried only water. The first to use tunnels on a major scale were the Romans. Roman engineers created the most extensive network of tunnels in the ancient world. The Romans built aqueducts to carry water from mountain springs to cities and villages; however, in many instances there were obstacles, such as rock formations, in between the spring and the city of interest....   [tags: History Historical tunnels Engineering Essays]

Larry J. Sabato's Thoughts on Constitutional Revisions - Larry J. Sabato offered some good notions as to what should be revised in the Constitution. Some of his thoughts were very well thought out, and helped me think much more about how the government should be amended. I agreed with essentially every idea he presented, except holding another Constitutional Convention—that proposal doesn’t seem necessary, since most of ideas could be implemented using the “elastic clause” (which Congress so frequently uses). Some more proposals that I did not agree with were expanding the senate to 136 members to add more representation, allowing non-U.S....   [tags: Government] 1076 words

The Evolution of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) has long been one of the most common work-related disorder as well as the most prevalent peripheral neuropathy. The syndrome is characterized by the weakness in the thumb, index and middle finger, numbness, tingling and even paralysis due to muscle atrophy. These symptoms result from the compression of the median nerve. There are many causes traditionally associated with the disorder including trauma, overuse and systemic conditions. While a great deal of information is known on the disorder, and in the recent years many steps have been taken and have been sucessful at reducing the disorder, the prevalence and cost to society is still very high....   [tags: work-related disorder, neuropathy]

We indulge in reading for many different purposes, be it survival, leisure or occupational. In a way, reading serves as a kind communication between the writer and the reader. The writer encodes what he or she wishes to convey while the reader decodes according to his or her own perception.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Abstract The wrist is surrounded by a band of fibrous tissue, which normally functions as a support for the joint. The tight space between this fibrous band and the wrist bone is called the carpal tunnel (The Stay Well Company, 1999). The median nerve passes through the carpal tunnel to receive sensations from the thumb, index, and middle fingers of the hand. Any condition that causes swelling or a change in position of the tissue within the carpal tunnel can squeeze and irritate the median nerve, which causes tingling and numbness of the thumb, index, and the middle fingers, a condition known as "carpal tunnel syndrome" (Nidus Info...   [tags: Papers] 1718 words

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome The carpal tunnel is a passageway that runs from the forearm through the wrist. Bones form three walls of the tunnel and a strong, broad ligament bridges over them. The median nerve, which supplies feeling to the thumb, index (4th digit), and ring fingers (3rd digit), and the nine tendons that flex the fingers, passes through this tunnel. This nerve, also, provides function for the muscles at the base of the thumb (the Thenar muscles). Usually, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is considered an inflammatory disorder caused by repetitive stress, physical injury, or medical conditions that cause the tissues around the median nerve to become swollen....   [tags: Papers] 2257 words
