This Girl Tr òn: The Forgotten Subject of Vietnam War Photographer Larry Burrows

Larry Burrows was a seasoned veteran of the Vietnam War when, in early 1968, he met 12-year-old Nguyễn Thị Tròn. Operating out of Saigon, the southern Republic of Vietnam’s capital, the photographer had been covering the conflict for LIFE magazine since 1962. He shadowed American troops, documenting ferocious firefights, surviving hours in the air with helicopter-gunship crews, and freeze-framing harrowing moments of bravery and despair, exhaustion, and appalling violence in combat zones. Though much of his best work had been shot in the thick of the action, he had come to be haunted by the trauma visited upon the Vietnamese people he described as non-political, “simple and hardworking.” Most, he believed, were steamrollered by both the South and the communist North to “bear pain in silence.” Burrows noted their stoicism with awe. “I was walking the streets of Saigon, as I’ve been doing for six years, thinking I’d never really told of the misery and suffering,” the photographer later recalled of meeting Tròn. “Round a corner, in a Red Cross compound, two Vietnamese children were rocking back and forth in a swing […] Walking along the fencing I could see their small bodies rocking to and fro.

Conclusions There is clinically significant variability between healthy nulliparous parturients in the pain experience, opioid use, and functional recovery after childbirth following vaginal and cesarean delivery. Recovery to predelivery function is similar after vaginal and cesarean delivery, and approximately half of the variance was explained by pain burden.

From the buttercup family, Eurasia ’s most lethal plant genus,Aconitum, has figured prominently in Greek, Hindu, and Chinese traditions. Ancient Greek mythology had aconite drooling from Cerberus, the three-headed hound of Hades. According to Hindu tradition, after turning blue from drinking the world ’s poisons, the deity Shiva dripped a little poison onto the blue aconite plant. In some traditional Chinese battles, arrow shafts smeared with aconite poisoned would-be rescuers as they removed arrows from the impaled.

SMOKE inhalation (Supplemental Digital Content,http://links.lww.com/ALN/B432, video of the entire procedure with commentary) produces injury through direct thermal injury, chemical injury from soot and other irritant compounds, and systemic toxicity. In addition to direct thermal trauma, airway edema occurs as a result of exposure to inhaled components such as aldehydes, ammonia, and phosgene, as well as fluid resuscitation. This can rapidly lead to airway obstruction and hypoxia, making early evaluation and frequent reassessment essential. Obvious signs of injury include facial burns, soot at the nose and mouth, singed fa...

(MEXICO CITY) — A powerful earthquake jolted central Mexico on Tuesday, cracking building facades and scattering rubble on streets in the capital on the anniversary of a devastating 1985 quake. The quake caused buildings to sway sickeningly in Mexico City and sent panicked office workers streaming into the streets, but the full extent of the damage was not yet clear. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 7.1 and was centered near the Puebla state town of Raboso, about 76 miles (123 kilometers) southeast of Mexico City. Puebla Gov. Tony Galil tweeted that there had been damaged buildings in the ...

Karyotyping of cultured peripheral blood lymphocytes and a buccal smear revealed a 46,XX/46,XY chimeric constitution with different percentages. Multiple molecular analyses as well as blood typing implied a tetragametic origin. After the unil...
