Sunday Sermonette: Drowning in blood

Leviticus 4 continues with the instructions for animal sacrifice. In this case the cause for the sacrifice is reasonably well specified, although it seems a bit odd. It's how people are to expiate sins they didn't realize they were committing. The text is silent as to how this might come about, or how the transgression might be recognized. Oddly, however, as we shall see the next chapter does specify some possibilities, but applies a slightly different penalty, at least for common people. As always, the strong inference is that this is a compilation of various source materials, that aren't always entirely consistent.4 TheLord said to Moses,2 “Say to the Israelites: ‘When anyone sins unintentionally and does what is forbidden in any of theLord’s commands—3 “‘If the anointed priest sins, bringing guilt on the people, he must bring to theLord a young bull without defect as a sin offering[a] for the sin he has committed.4 He is to present the bull at the entrance to the tent of meeting before theLord. He is to lay his hand on its head and slaughter it there before theLord.5 Then the anointed priest shall take some of the bull ’s blood and carry it into the tent of meeting.6 He is to dip his finger into the blood and sprinkle some of it seven times before theLord, in front of the curtain of the sanctuary.7 The priest shall then put some of the blood on the horns of the altar of fragrant incense that is be...

Cosmetic devices using non-ionizing radiation (NIR) are increasingly available for people who wish to modify their appearance for aesthetic purposes. There are a wide range of NIR modalities used for cosmetic procedures, including devices that use optical radiation (laser, intense pulsed light, and light-emitting diode), electromagnetic fields, and ultrasound. Common procedures involving the application of NIR include epilation, skin rejuvenation, body sculpting and contouring, treatment of vascular and skin lesions, tattoo removal, and scar reduction. The majority of research on the use of NIR cosmetic devices has focused...

Discussion From Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Ann Intern Med. 2020 Apr 07;172(7):484-491 Authors: Kanjee Z, Bauer KA, Breu AC, Burns R Abstract Venous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes both deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, is a common and potentially fatal condition. Medical inpatients are at high risk for VTE because of immobility as well as acute and chronic illness. Several randomized trials demonstrated that chemoprophylaxis, or low-dose anticoagulation, prevents VTE in selected medical inpatients. The 2018 American Society of Hematology clinical practice guideline on pro...
