Taking a course in human anatomy is required for those preparing for healthcare careers as well as those already in medical school. Human anatomy is often offered during undergraduate years because it gives students an understanding into human anatomic functions and structure. It's also the foundation for further research as well as lab activity in the identification of disease.
One reason why students are often surprised at the rigor involved in studying human anatomy, is its complexity. It is not enough to memorize the separate body parts and organs. Students should also be fully versed in how they interact and interrelate to one another. Comprehending the human anatomy in its ideal state enables students to then assess the influences of foreign objects, viruses and illness once they're introduced into the human body.
In certain contexts, there are lab based applications of the course that students should be proficient in. These include diagnostic procedures suchRead More »from A Basic Look at Human Anatomy Courses
Reach "super fan" status with a replica jersey, the ultimate team spirit style statement. Team hockey jerseys - traditionally called "sweaters" - come in a range of licensed fan versions. You'll feel like a first round draft pick when you sport your favorite team's jersey - it's the next best thing to getting out on the ice.
Professional hockey teams keep several different hockey jerseys on rotation, giving you plenty of options for showing your team spirit when purchasing your own. In the NHL, teams wear dark-colored "home" jerseys on home ice, switching to a white "away" jersey when playing on the road. To mix things up a bit, most clubs have an alternate "third jersey" worn 10 to 15 games per season. If your aim is to stand out in a packed arena of fans, an alternate jersey is the way to go.
For the serious hockey fan - the one who already owns a few standard replica hockey jerseys - a practice jersey is a must-have. After all, what better way to feel you're aRead More »from Have Fun Picking Out Your Favorite Hockey Jerseys
This is what we like to call Fantasyland..."We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality. "
As someone who has made it my mission to help people save time, create space and reduce stress by getting organized, I am thrilled to see how many magazines, catalogs and TV shows now address this topic.
On the other hand, the visions of perfect organization that are shown create unrealistic expectations of how your place should be. If you are a normal person, your home or office will never look like the pictures you see in magazines and it's a good bet that you won't be whisked off for a vacation while a team of people makes over your home. I call the alternate reality that is featured in the media Organization Fantasyland.
Here are some reasons why the images of Organization Fantasyland can't be replicated in real life:

Ricky Gervais is getting ready to host the Golden Globes for the third time -- despite saying he'd never take that stage again.
"What made you change your mind?" asked Ellen in an episode airing Thursday, January 12. "You said you weren't going to do it again. You said, for sure you wouldn't do it and now you're doing it."
"The reason I said yes the first time, I was very flattered. It was a huge global audience for a comedian. I like writing jokes. That's what I do," Ricky explained. "The reason I did it the second time, was I thought I could improve on the first. Which I think I did. I wasn't going to do it again, but there were loads of people in the press saying I'd never be invited back and that's why I said yes."
Was he shocked over the criticism he received after his first and second hosting gigs? Ricky said, "I knew what I was doing. It's the same as standup. I know where the gasp is going to come. I know when the laughs are going to come... I knew all that. IRead More »from Ricky Gervais on Hosting the Golden Globes Again
