    Suicide is newsworthy because life is precious. In 1993, a 6-year old girl living in Florida stepped in front of a train. She left a note saying that she "wanted to be with her mother" who recently died from a terminal illness. This is the power of the human mind. A girl in Kindergarten thinks of the past and imagines a future that is so bleak, so devoid of meaningful moments without her mom, that she takes her own life. The same mental tools that distinguish us from other animals, the same mental tools that allow us to solve problems and produce creative works that give us symbolic immortality are the same tools that allow a 6-year old to contemplate a future that is terrible enough to physically leap into an oncoming train. If a 6-year old has the cognitive capacity to kill herself, then we need to step up our efforts to understand and prevent it from happening.

    In general, people do not commit suicide because they are in pain, they commit suicide because they don't believe there is a reason to live and the world will be better off without them.

    Researchers continue to find support for the notion that the greatest suicidal risk exists for people that believe they are a burden on society AND possess a history where they acquired the capacity to harm themselves.

    The Six Reasons People Attempt Suicide
    Suicide is far more understandable than people think.

    In general, people try to kill themselves for six reasons:




      • They're depressed.
    2. They're psychotic

    3. They're impulsive.

    4. They're crying out for help,

    5. They have a philosophical desire to die.

    6. They've made a mistake.

    An English BA from at the University of Chicago opens up a variety of professional opportunities. Many of our graduates go on to study in prestigious graduate programs, in everything from English to law and medicine. Other English BAs use the linguistic, writing, and critical skills they have honed as undergraduates at Chicago to land jobs in fields like education, journalism, new media, publishing, public relations, technical writing, consulting, and advertising, among others. Recent graduates work everywhere from Basic Books to Google and from the Chicago Public Schools to the U.S. Department of Treasury.

    While expectations, missions, policies, and requirements are unique to each medical school, many schools look for students who demonstrate an ability to handle challenging coursework and have the personal attributes needed to work with people. It’s important for applicants to show that they’ve done well in upper-level science courses, and “doing well on the MCAT® exam shows that you can handle medical school coursework,” says Irene Tise, admissions officer in the Office of Medical Student Admissions at Wake Forest School of Medicine.

    Lori Nicolaysen, assistant dean of admissions at Weill Cornell Medical College, adds that they “seek students who have also demonstrated exceptional personal initiative. Such initiative may take the form of leadership, creativity, research, community service, motivation, or other life experiences.”


    Each medical school has its own nuanced process for reviewing applications. For example, “Weill Cornell invites all applicants to complete the secondary application,” Ms. Nicolaysen shares. “Once the file is complete (including secondary application, letters of evaluation, and MCAT scores), the application is moved to screening. A number of experienced admissions committee members serve as screeners. Although Weill Cornell has fourth-year medical students on the admissions committee, the students do not screen applications.”

    Dr. Raquel D. Arias, associate dean of admissions at Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, explains, “In order to give every candidate a fair review of their personal qualities and accomplishments, a single screener evaluates all candidates with a particular MCAT score at our school. This controls for the inevitable influence that this important test has on the process. An admissions officer reads every application submitted to the school.”


    Medical schools consider each applicant’s academic proficiency, whether they are likely to thrive in the culture of the institution, and if their experiences, attributes, and goals are in line with the school’s mission and goals. Inevitably, medical schools receive many more qualified applicants than they can interview and matriculate. The decision to interview one student over another can be very difficult to say the least.


    Dr. Foxwell adds, “At University of Maryland, outstanding grades and MCAT scores do not guarantee that an applicant will be invited to interview. Just as important are extracurricular activities and life experiences, essays and personal comments in AMCAS, and letters of recommendation.”

    Office of the Dean

    A Message from Dean Augustine M.K. Choi

    I am thrilled to lead Weill Cornell Medicine as its 15th dean—especially now, at a time of exciting growth and possibility.

    Weill Cornell Medicine’s top-ranked physicians, scientists, and students have been engaging in world-class clinical care, cutting-edge research, and innovative medical education for well over a century. The institution has evolved in response to contemporary challenges and opportunities, while advancing steadily in its mission to improve human health.


    Today Weill Cornell Medicine is poised to build on this rich legacy and become a triple threat in academic medicine—renowned for its commitment to “Care. Discover. Teach.”

    Choi immigrated to the U.S. with his parents when he was a middle school student. After receiving his MD from the University of Louisville in 1984, he served on the faculty and medical staff of Johns Hopkins, Yale and Harvard.

    Choi grew up with a father who also practiced medicine. In 1962, his late father successfully operated a heart surgery with a heart-lung machine. Choi’s older brother, Justin, is a resident at Yale while his younger brother Alex is also attending University of Michigan Medical School.

    (Currently)? or in 1962?

    The Six Reasons People Attempt Suicide

    Suicide is far more understandable than people think.



    what is 'to think'? what is 'far more understandable'? what is 'people who think'?


    what is 'to not think'? what is 'far more understandable to those that do not think'? what is 'people who do not think'?


    Why is there a need to think if there are hiring and receiving managers who are supposed to do their jobs in screening?

    I can think on those things which are pertinent to myself, and think on those things which are within this pertinence.. But why should I have to think on other subject matters not concerning myself because the persons in that sector does not think? But at the same time, what becomes of all those that are within that sector, to learn and to receive proper instructions and guides, to be able to properly think?


    Matthew 15:12-14
    "Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 14Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."


    Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.


    rooted up:
    1610. ekrizoó
    Concordance
    pluck up by the root, root up.
    From ek and rhizoo; to uproot -- pluck up by the root, root up.

    I heard a rumor of a certain Dr. Rizoh. A cosmetic surgeon.. I heard he 'molests' the female patients when they are under anesthesia.

    In the practice of medicine (especially surgery and dentistry),anesthesia or anaesthesia (from Greek "without sensation") is a state of temporary induced loss of sensation or awareness.

    '....shall be rooted up'


    The Heavenly Father plants proper physicians.

    "...Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up." Matthew 15:13

    Matthew 13:24-30
    "24Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn."


    tares:
    2215. zizanion

    wheat:
