The brain is made up of three main structures: the cerebrum or cerebral hemispheres, propecia side effects the brain stem, and the cerebellum. The cerebrum is the largest and most recognizable of the three structures and is the one most often involved in epilepsy. The cerebral cortex is the highly folded, neuron-rich outer layer of the cerebrum that is referred to as gray matter. Underlying the cerebral cortex is a layer composed of white matter, which is rich in nerve fibers that are important in transmitting signals from neurons in the cortex to cells in other parts of the body. The cerebrum is divided into right and left halves, or hemispheres, which are connected near the center of the brain by a bundle of fibers called the corpus callosum. The 2009 national data set includes more than 100 Ryan White-funded Part C and Part D grantees (excluding those from New York State) submitting 2009 quality of care data to HIVQUAL-US, representing more than 5,000 chart reviews. Through regional workshops and on-site consultation, providers and staff are offered education and training in organizational development to support quality improvement activities. This approach is designed to assist HIV programs to assess their HIV service delivery system, strengthen their HIV quality program, identify areas for improvement, develop and conduct quality improvement programs, and monitor and sustain beneficial changes over time. HIV providers, and consultations to support on-site quality improvement efforts. The ultimate objective for each HIV program in New York State remains the development of a sustainable independent quality management program that reflects the capacity to dynamically analyze and continuously improve HIV treatment, care, and supportive services.

Platelets are a specialized type of blood cell that is involved in the injury healing process. Human platelets are naturally extremely rich in connective tissue growth factors. Injecting these growth factors into damaged ligaments, tendons, and joints, stimulates a natural repair process.

The centrifuge separates the red blood cells from the platelets, while concentrating the platelets (and growth factors)..

Sports Race-Bait-O-Rama

October 28th, 2005 at 11:21 am by Preston Taylor Holmes

It has been an outstanding sports week – if you enjoy race-based pseudo-controversy.

First in our cavalcade of race-related sports nonsense was the NBA’s new dress code.

If you missed the story, and you probably should have if you didn’t, the NBA has handed down a new “business casual” dress code for its players when they are at official NBA functions or on the bench during games. The overwhelming response from players? “Ya’ll a bunch of racists, tryin’ to hold us down.”

More specifically, Allan Iverson:

They’re targeting my generation — the hip-hop generation,” Iverson said in a television interview. He added, “You can put a murderer in a suit and he’s still a murderer.”

You said it, Allan, I didn’t. And Marcus Camby, since he’s obviously strapped for cash, wants the NBA to provide him with a clothing budget if they’re going to make him dress respectably at official functions. Columnist Leonard Pitts adds:

Camby, for those who never read the sports page, is a very tall man who is paid $8 million per annum to play basketball for the Denver Nuggets. You’d think life would be good, but Camby is feeling put upon.

This is because the National Basketball Association has instituted a dress code for its players. No more sunglasses worn indoors, no more sleeveless shirts, no more headphones during news conferences, no more caps cocked to the side, no more do-rags, no more rumpled sweats, no more chains bearing gaudy pendants the approximate size and weight of a small child. Business casual dress is now required of every player while on team business.

Camby feels this is an unfair burden. He told a reporter that if the NBA wants to impose a dress code, it should give each player a clothing allowance.

Sure, a dress code will make the product look a little better, but the NBA is a pig that won’t be saved by a silk hat. The product still sucks, but only slightly less than the WNBA. Neither product is worth one dollar of your household entertainment budget.

Next in the sports race-o-rama, Air Force football coach Fisher DeBerry is in hot water with this easily-offended, limp-wristed sports columnist over some comments he made after a loss to TCU last week.

What great offense did DeBerry commit? He stated the obvious, which is politically incorrect. According to columnist Michael Rosenberg, this makes him out of touch – and even worse – DeBerry is a Christian.


“It’s very obvious they had a lot more Afro-American players than we did, and they ran a lot faster than we did. It just seems to me to be that way, that Afro-American players can run very, very well. That doesn’t mean that Caucasian kids and other descents can’t run, but it’s very obvious to me that they run extremely well.”

Maybe I’m missing something, but when I look at the football’s skill positions (WR, RB, etc), the best players are overwhelmingly black. When I watch track and field in the Olympics – well, let’s be honest, I never watch the Olympics because they suck – the fastest athletes are overwhelmingly black. Find me an all-cracker 4-man relay team and I’ll admit to being wrong. As a crude generalization, statistics prove DeBerry to be correct.

The real crime here to the bedwetting lefty media is that an old coot like DeBerry would come out say this, and in terms that were not put through the politically correct filter that they’ve forced upon the rest of us. Rosenberg was particularly offended by DeBerry’s use of the word “Afro-American”:

First of all: who says “Afro-American” anymore? Either Fisher is so hip that he’s going retro on us, or he is hopelessly out of touch. I’m going with out of touch.

Second, let’s be candid and say that a lot of people would agree with DeBerry. I wouldn’t guess on the percentage of people who feel that way, but it is significant. And that includes people of all races.

However …

Fisher DeBerry was dead wrong. And, whether he realizes it or not, his comments are damaging.

Note that he did not say that “some” African-Americans run very, very well, or even that “most” African-Americans run very, very well. He said that “Afro-American players can run very, very well,” period. He threw all black folks into the same boat, and all other folks in another boat, and basically said that the treadmill on the black people’s boat would get more wear.

When DeBerry recruits, does he look for speed, or does he look for African-American players and assume they have speed?

This is the kind of pie-eyed self-righteous college-newspaper editorializing that should embarrass Fox Sports – especially if they actually paid Rosenberg for use of the column. The fact that the columnist claims that DeBerry’s comments are “damaging” demonstrates how truly out of touch the hysterical politically-correct speech censors have become. Rosenberg will undoubtedly receive an honorable mention from the Society of Professional Journalists for this screed.

DeBerry offended journalism school graduates across the country last year when he posted a sign in the team locker room that “I am a member of team Jesus Christ.” It’s no wonder they’re all over him for last week’s comments. Lucky for Rosenberg, last year’s incident gave him a chance to work in this comedic gem:

(Coming soon to a TV near you: “Team Jesus Christ takes the handoff and walks on water!”)

He may have a future writing one-liners for Rosie O’Donnell or Margaret Cho with that keen wit!

Last and certainly least, former big-time-baseball-bat-swinger Joe Morgan was aghast this week that there were “no blacks” on the Houston Astros roster.

You would think that professional sports would be one of those industries where quotas were unnecessary. Not according to Morgan:

HOUSTON — Watching the World Series, Hall of Fame second baseman Joe Morgan is troubled by what he sees.

His former team, the Houston Astros, entered Tuesday night’s Game 3 trailing the Chicago White Sox, 2-0, but it’s not their lineup that concerns Morgan. It’s their makeup.

The Astros are the first Series team in more than a half-century with a roster that doesn’t include a black player.

“Of course I noticed it. How could you not?” Morgan said. “But they’re not the only ones. There are two or three teams that didn’t have any African-American players this year.”

Morgan said it’s a predicament and a challenge for Major League Baseball. While more players from around the world are making it to the majors, the number of blacks is declining.

Of course, commissioner Bud Selig was quick to bend over and grab his ankles for Morgan and his fellow-troubled-travelers:

“We know we have to work to do,” commissioner Bud Selig said Tuesday. “We’ll continue to intensify our efforts. I’m very aware, I’m extremely sensitive about it, and I feel badly about it. But we need to get to work to change things.”

Selig “feels badly about it.” What a fucking pansy. Instead of pointing out that a baseball team is a business, and as a business, it’s up to them to fill the roster with the best possible players available, regardless of race-based quotas, Selig blubbers about how bad he feels that Morgan’s quotas weren’t met by Houston this year.

Astros GM Tim Purpura jumped on the shame train as well:

Astros general manager Tim Purpura agrees.

“I think it’s a huge problem,” he said. “The pool of African-American players just isn’t there. And as baseball becomes more college-oriented in its draft, there aren’t many players to pick.

“The African-American athletes are going into other sports.”

Of course there are players of different ethnicities on the Astros’ roster, but they’re just not dark enough.

Sorry, Jose, you’re just not dark enough for our team.
