Why William Shatner ’s History-Making Spaceflight Is Something to Celebrate
You could be forgiven for never having heard of The Butler’s Night Off, an obscure 1951 Canadian film that was a little bit of noir, a little bit of comedy and a whole lot of forgettable.

The Butler went nowhere. Shatner went, well, everywhere. Today he went to space—flying a popgun suborbital mission aboard a Blue Origin New Shepard spacecraft that took off at 10:50 AM EDT and car...

The canal is lined with squamous epithelium and has various structures such as sebaceous glands, hair follicles and of course ceruminous glands. It is not surprising that this structure is subject to obstruction given its small size. Cerumen, hair and other cellular debris may become impacted if they are not regularly expelled f...
