Most people want to be successful or want to win in their pursuits, be it exams, business or life, but only a few are successful. Simple reason is the fact that there is a price to be paid in terms of sacrificing leisure, sleep or sometimes sacrificing your entire comfort zone. Most people are success hungry but too lazy, too reluctant to pay the price and blame their bad luck which is the easiest scape goat. You lose because you simply are too lazy to follow your dream and you don't want to take risk or put the bet on yourself. You look for safe options and blame luck in the end.

How many teachers do you remember in life?
Teaching as a profession has not got its due in India. Probably because most (not all) of our school teachers were there for a job and not for passion of teaching. Simple test which I ask many people to do is recall the names of your teachers and mostly people are able to recall around one or two, at the most three. Then I ask them what about rest, they don’t seem to remember, and my personal take is probably they didn’t leave a mark on your life. Teachers don’t earn that much money but what they earn is the gratitude of the students and that is priceless. But understandably in our country our first conta...

Super Hero of Rare Earths
Chemistry book facts about Gadolinium : Gadolinium is a light rare earth element (LREE) used in nuclear reactor control rods to regulate the fission process. In 1886 Lecoq de Boisbaudran separated gadolinium metal from the oxide. He named the silvery-white metallic metal that is both malleable and ductile after Finnish Chemist Johan Gadolin who discovered the first rare earth in 1794. Gadolinium is a versatile rare earth, so much so that it is referred to as the superhero of rare earths.From Sumer's Radiology Site http://www.sumerdoc.blogspot.com -The Top Radiology Magazine.

The knee is the most commonly affected joint, followed by the hip, elbow, and shoulder, although any other joint may be involved.

"Active MRI" Wrist- New Paradigm for Dynamic Wrist Instability
In an article by Boutin et al published in PLoS ONE 8(12): e84004. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0084004 ; authors discuss the development of a protocol for active-MRI using a bSSFP pulse sequence that reliably provides real-time image acquisition during movements and consequently, enables measurements of acceptable anatomical parameters associated with dynamic wrist instability.  The bSSFP family of fast gradient echo pulse sequence is best known for their application in real-time dynamic cardiovascular imaging. Vendor-specific names for bSSFP pulse sequences include true Fast Imaging with Steady Precession (true-FIS...
