- 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]

- 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]

A Report About The Jeddo Tunnel

- ]. For example, the Jeddo Tunnel is composed of an extensive system of drainage tunnels discharges between 175,000 and 270,000 m3/d [Wood, 1996]. AMD occurs due to mining activities where previously hidden sulfides are now exposed to air and water, creating acidic sulfur-rich wastewaters. The wastewaters also contain elevated concentrations of metals, in particular iron [Johnson and Hallberg, 2005; Schweinfurth, 2009]. The sulfide rich, acidic water from the abandoned flooded mines, emerges as acid mine drainage from tunnels, air shafts, fractures in steam channels, and other low points in the previously mined area....   [tags: Water, Carbon dioxide, Coal, Acid]

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]

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]
