The Last of Us [Murder at The Dakota]

72094a70-d7ed-11e4-9748-3fd77e204473_8409531487_c93dacf41f_kConsidered Manhattan’s most exclusive building, the Dakota is a co-op built in 1884 on the corner of 72nd Street and Central Park West on the Upper West Side. John Lennon was murdered outside in 1980, and his widow, Yoko Ono, still lives in their apartment. The building was also the setting for Roman Polanski’s classic 1968 creeper, “Rosemary’s Baby.”

The perfect setting for an old-fashioned, “dead body in a locked room” whodunit.

The Last of Us [Anatomy of a Murder, Part 2]

“Mankind has only one science. It is the science of discontent.” – Count Hasimir Fenring

 

Mondo walks the murder scene. It’s just she and Wade. When she first entered the apartment, she had a near-psychic experience. Nothing magical, of course. But. Something clearly paranormal, nonetheless.

What was the “special-K” event?

Upon crossing the threshold and setting foot in the apartment. Suddenly Mondo is in the foyer of a fancy French restaurant. One of those swanky joints of a five-star hotel, circa 1920’s, just before The Fall. She pokes her head into the dining area, then invites herself in and explores, the he-she gender-bending maître d’hôtel pays her no mind, as if she’s invisible. Likewise, the patrons treat her as if she’s not there. There is the usual, polite eatery chatter, but it is indiscernible as to what language the patrons are actually speaking, and the more she tries to discern what it was, the more indecipherable their spoken language becomes. But. One thing is for sure. In spite of the supposed local, the language is not French. Still. No one seems to notice her. And. There seems no way for her to interact with them. There is something immaterial and supernatural about the place and the people in spite of very substantive and very mundane appearances. She can touch drinking glasses and plates, and remove them from tables, yet they remain on the tables, as if she is manipulating their “likenesses” while the originals remain on the tables to be used. She can touch patrons and staff, but they don’t seem to notice. As she turns around to make another circuit of the room looking for something anything she missed observing the first time. The maître d’ and a couple being lead to their table by the maître d’ passes right through her, as if she or they is a wraith. Once the couple is seated, the maître d’ turns his attention to Mondo and looks her straight in the eye, acknowledging her existence. There’s silence, everyone in the room—staff and patrons alike—are looking at her, giving her their undivided attention.

“Young lady, we’re simply appalled. Emily Post would be turning in her grave, if she were dead. You know better. Goodness gracious. You’re Coco’s Girl Friday, and, as you well know, she [Coco] has an account here and is a member in good standing. A standing, I might add, which your ridiculous stunt [flouting the rules] has put in grave jeopardy.” The maître d’ is speaking English with a strong French accent.  “You’ve been here before; many times, I might add. You know the score. You’re hardly a virgin to it. We don’t take walk-ins, no exceptions. You’re to wait your turn to be seated by me, and you MUST be accompanied by a member who has made a reservation beforehand.” There’s a long pause. “The way you’re acting, the next thing we know, you’ll be spooning with one of the guests in the hotel lobby.” Another pause. This one is much shorter. “Be gone, before we change our minds and decide that this transgression demands more than just a verbal reprimand … Oh. And say ‘hello’ to Coco from us. She’s hasn’t been by for a while, thanks to her ‘house arrest’ by that new Pope.” There’s an intermediate pause. “Pope Ruth has really let us down in this matter. Then, again, the Pope is only human. But. We must support Holy Mother Church.” He smiles broadly; much wider than any human could. “Once all this unpleasantness is over, maybe the Pope can join us for brunch as a guest of Coco’s.” Then, in closing, before formally dismissing the girl, he adds a seemingly out of context cryptic. “Remember: boys will be boys, and girls will be girls. The only difference that matters is the length and girth of their toys.”

Mondo pops back into the here and now with none the wiser. From Mondo’s perspective, she was gone for a while. From Wade’s perspective, she never left. In quantum physics terms: she had transitioned to a point outside [beyond] the space-time continuum and then transitioned right back to whence she had come. And no matter how it might sound to the uninitiated, it was not time travel.

They snatched her and then publically blamed her for the transgression. Again proving that plausible deniability isn’t just the domain of the mundane. She can’t prove her innocence, and no one can prove their guilt.

Officially, they haven’t intervened. Officially, they haven’t given her clues to what’s what. Officially, they’ve remained unbiased in their support of The Church, in this matter.

Thanks to all that official neutrality of theirs. Now, she knows how the murderer got in a locked room. Now, she knows the murderer’s motivation for the crimes, and thus she now knows the connection between the seemingly unrelated murder in the Dakota and the murder on the Wal-Mart parking lot. And. Now, she knows the murderer is male.

The human Wade has the forensics and a suspect. But. What he doesn’t have is the murderer. He only has the unknowing coconspirator.

The Girl Can’t Help It 1956, Scenes, Trailers, & Full Movie

Available on DVD through www.umbrellaent.com.au

Buy it here: http://www.umbrellaent.com.au/p-1774-…

Among the many films attempting to capture the emerging rock ‘n’ roll sound, Frank Tashlin’s high-voltage, candy-coloured satire on 50s popular culture stands out as a masterpiece. Featuring electrifying performances from rock ‘n’ rollers The Platters, Little Richard, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran and Fats Domino, cartoon director Tashlin’s campy musical courses with the fantastic imagination of an animator. A buxom Jayne Mansfield ably carries the film as the outrageously voluptuous and tone-deaf girlfriend of a retired racketeer – her first starring role; while Tom Ewell (Seven Year Itch) plays an alcoholic agent hired to transform the gangster’s blond bombshell into a movie star.

Theatrical trailer for the 1956 film THE GIRL CAN’T HELP IT starring Jayne Mansfield, Tom Ewell and Edmund O’Brien. Directed by Frank Tashlin. Based on the Broadway play “Do Rei Mi” by Garson Kanin.

To understand China’s President Xi Jinping, don’t look to Mao Tse-tung, look to Chiang Kai-shek / 要理解中国国家主席习近平,不看毛泽东,看向蒋介石

Los Angeles Time, OP-EDs | Original Source

By James Carter and Jeffrey Wasserstrom

Chinese President Xi Jinping attends the closing session of the annual National People's Congress in Beijing's Great Hall of the People on March 16. (Ng Han Guan / Associated Press)

Chinese President Xi Jinping attends the closing session of the annual National People’s Congress in Beijing’s Great Hall of the People on March 16. (Ng Han Guan / Associated Press)

China’s leader, its strongest in years, runs the government, commands the army, and directs a tightly disciplined party that takes a dim view of opposition. His security forces and censors work to minimize public expressions of dissent, while the party’s official media dismiss protests as the work of nefarious foreign powers. One central challenge he faces is widespread belief that officials in his party are corrupt. He works hard to show how seriously he takes this problem, but this effort is undermined by a high-profile publication referring to the great and possibly illicit wealth his brother-in-law has accumulated.

We could be talking about Xi Jinping in 2016, the year the Panama Papers revealed that his sister’s husband sequestered funds offshore. We could just as easily, though, be talking about Chiang Kai-shek in 1946 — the year that Theodore White and Annalee Jacoby published “Thunder Out of China,” an influential bestseller that presented the Nationalist Party as riddled with corruption and struggling to maintain control of the country. If we had Chiang rather than Xi in mind, however, we would have referred to “brothers-in-law” — plural — because the Nationalist Party strongman had two, H.H. Kung and T.V. Soong, who many saw as lining their pockets.

When commentators liken Xi to a past leader, they tend to pick Mao Tse-tung, the man whose Communist Party forces drove Chiang into exile in 1949. We find it at least as useful, though, to place Xi beside Chiang. Xi’s party may still include the word “Communist” in its name, but the country is far more consumerist than it was in Mao’s day.  To think clearly about China’s future, we need to think of Xi as facing challenges, such as disgust with ill-gotten riches, that only Chiang confronted.

In 1946, Chiang’s Republic of China was one of the “Big Five” Allies that had just defeated the Axis powers, and had secured one of the five permanent seats on the newly formed United Nations Security Council. Bankrolled by the United States and free, after more than a decade, of Japanese invaders, China seemed poised to take its place near the top of the global order.

Seventy years later, many point to China as the next superpower. Xi’s party is not, like Chiang’s, one that can boast of recently helping to defeat a military foe, but it can — and does — point to other significant accomplishments. Official rhetoric presents former leader Deng Xiaoping and his successors as changing a country that, upon Mao’s death 40 years ago, was reeling from the devastation of the Cultural Revolution. It is, according to Xi, ready to put past humiliations at foreign hands and periods of domestic chaos behind it.

Corruption, however, could stand between China and great-power status — as it did 70 years ago.

As economic growth slows and environmental degradation mounts, the benefits of single-party rule may be sliding out of focus for many.

Here’s a statement from a 1946 issue of the China Weekly Review that reads as though it came from a recent edition of the Economist: “[T]ales of corruption in public office have recently become so frequent and commonplace that they are no longer ‘news.’” When Chiang launched an anti-corruption drive that year, commentators questioned his sincerity as they do Xi’s today. Was Chiang trying get the situation under control or dispel criticism? Is Xi trying to solidify his power, reform the system or both?

The parallels don’t stop there. Chiang insisted that modernizing China and valuing millennia-old Confucian ideas could go together. Now, after a period when the Communist Party blamed Confucianism for keeping China weak, Xi quotes Confucius as a great thinker. The Confucius Institutes that the Communist Party now funds around the world would have appalled Mao in 1966, but Chiang would have thought them a great idea had someone suggested it to him in 1946.

When Americans read “Thunder Out of China,” many were surprised to learn that Mao’s Communists represented a viable threat to Chiang. Reviewing the book in the New York Times, Harvard University professor John King Fairbank explained that “Communism has gained in China and will continue to do so in proportion as there is bad government.”

The party Xi heads derives its legitimacy not from ideology — the idea that China is a worker’s paradise is laughable in light of the growing chasm between rich and poor — but from performance. As economic growth slows and environmental degradation mounts, the benefits of single-party rule may be sliding out of focus for many. Party cadres, with bloated bellies and bank accounts, make just as attractive targets for frustration as they were in 1946.

This does not mean that we predict that Xi’s party is heading toward the kind of fall that Chiang’s experienced. The troubled state of the world may actually benefit leaders such as Xi, who work hard to present themselves as strong figures capable of guaranteeing stability in perilous times.

Will there be more “thunder out of China” in the next year or next decade?  Neither we nor anyone else knows, but the fissures White and Jacoby identified in the old China of 1946 can be found in the new China of 2016.

James Carter is a professor of history at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. Jeffrey Wasserstrom is a professor of history at UC Irvine and editor of the “Oxford Illustrated History of Modern China,” to which Carter contributed one of the chapters on the Nationalist era.

Dr Zimmerman’s Tuesday Tip — Leadership and the Power of Hope

Remember to Share this with a Friend!

Hope

In 2008, Barack Obama’s entire Presidential campaign was centered on hope and change. It got him elected and easily re-elected in 2012. You will have to decide whether or not he accomplished the task of re-instilling your hope.

In 2016, the same thing is happening. Whether you love or hate Donald Trump, his huge numbers of followers believe he will re-instill their hope for a changed future.

Whatever your political persuasion, we can all agree on one thing. Hope is powerful. And a leader that knows how to instill hope in others will be a leader who knows how to motivate others.

On the reverse side,

1. Hopelessness Is Costly.

During the 13th century, King Frederick, the head of the Holy Roman Empire, proved that.  He conducted a most unusual experiment. He wondered what language babies would speak if no one ever spoke to them.

So he gathered together a large number of babies for his experiment. The caretakers were instructed to feed and clothe the babies, but no one was to ever speak to them.

Of course, King Frederick never learned the answer to his question. All of the babies died. Human beings cannot live without some sense of hope.

The same is true in the business world. Even though employees may not “die” physically in a negative, hopeless work environment, they’ll certainly die motivationally. In a study by William M. Mercer, Inc., and reported in Compensation and Benefits Review, 25% of the workers said they were capable of doing 50% more work.

So why don’t they? They lacked hope. They didn’t feel their contribution was wanted or rewarded. In particular, almost a third of the respondents gave three reasons for not doing more:

  1. They weren’t involved in the decision making,
  2. They weren’t rewarded for good performance, and
  3. They saw no opportunity for advancement.

What’s it like in your organization? Is everyone filled with hope and enthusiasm? Is everyone on fire, giving 120%? Or do you have some people that are just getting by? If you answered the latter, if you’ve got some less than fully productive people on your team, you may be in the midst of a crisis–a crisis of hope.

So, whether you lead a team or a family,

2. One of Your Primary Functions Is to Keep Hope Alive.

In fact, hope is one of the main reasons people keep trying and trying to get better and better.

Tom Malone, president of Milliken and Company, made that quite clear. He said:

“I played football in college. I wasn’t very big–only 150 pounds–and I wasn’t very good. I got hurt a lot. I broke my arm once, my neck once, and my nose six times. When I tell people about it, they always ask me, ‘Why did you keep doing it?’ For the longest time I had no answer. Then one day it hit me. If there hadn’t been any fans in the stands cheering me on — my family and friends — I wouldn’t have kept on playing and trying so hard. But there were, so I did.”

I agree. It’s our job to keep hope alive. We’re the fans in the stands for our teammates, our employees, our customers, our friends, and our family members.

But how can we do that? To get you started on the process of leading with hope,

3. Correct a Little.

Some of the best advice I ever got came from Pope John XXIII. Even though he was a most unlikely “management consultant,” he was right on when he wrote “SEE EVERYTHING, OVERLOOK A LOT, CORRECT A LITTLE.”

For the sake of brevity, I’ll assume you do quite well on his first two suggestions. Most people do. It’s the third area where I see too many people kill off the hope in others. They correct too many faults at the same time.

By contrast, look at how a golf pro teaches. When a person comes to him for lessons, he may have four or five basic flaws in his swing. All of these flaws will eventually need to be corrected if he expects to hit the ball well.

However, if the golf pro told his student about all of his flaws at once, the student would probably feel overwhelmed and hopeless. Instead, the pro points out one or two of the most glaring errors. As the student corrects those and begins to hit the ball better, he’s encouraged to keep on learning more to get better and better. Then the pro gives him something else to work on.

The same is true in business. WHEN YOU WANT PEOPLE TO LEARN NEW SKILLS, IT WORKS BEST TO WORK ON ONE THING AT A TIME. Then you watch for every opportunity to praise their progress.

As the old saying goes, “Nothing succeeds like success.” Success is a great motivator. When employees master one step and are praised for doing so, it spurs them on to the next skill they need to master.

As you “correct a little,” as you give your feedback, make sure you USE TACT. So much of the time, the hope you build or kill in others is not so much a function of what you say but how you say it.

Baltasar Gracian wrote, “Cultivate tact, for it is the work of culture…the lubricant of human relationships, softening contacts and minimizing friction.” He’s right.

The ancient Muslims used to tell a story to illustrate the importance of tact. A sultan called in one of his seers and asked how long he would live. “Sire,” said the fortune teller, “you will live to see all your sons dead.” The sultan flew into a rage and handed the fortune teller over to his guards to be executed.

He then called for a second seer and asked him the same question. “Sire,” said this fortune teller, “I see you blessed with long life, so long that you will outlive all your family.” The sultan was delighted and rewarded the fortune teller with gold and silver.

Obviously, both of the seers said the same thing. But one had tact; the other did not.

It’s not good enough to have “truth” on your side. You’ve got to know how to communicate it as well. Then, and only then, will you keep people’s hope alive, and then, and only then, will they give all that they are capable of giving.

Final Thought:  Never deprive someone of hope. It may be all he has.

The Last of Us [Anatomy of a Murder, Part 1]

A year before the homicide at the Dakota …

A woman and her robot roommate. They share a leased apartment in the Dakota. Flesh and metal, openly living in sin, so to speak.

A woman, like a demon. Naked. Wanton. Branded and deeply scared—although, she can parade around unmarked, her flesh flawless and creamy-smooth, and thus bereft of Satanic disfigurement. Speaking in tongues—i.e., meaningless babble to the uninitiated that’s anything but meaningless to the adept. Her father is a fallen angel. Her mother is a human practitioner of witchcraft. Schooled in stealth and the “craft” of assassination. A servant of Lucifer. She murders with will, not blindly like an animal. She is a monster.

Her life partner. A skin job. Underneath the lie of its flesh is a Mordmaschine (German: the Murder Machine). Wearing its flesh, it’s the identical twin of the woman it’s partnered with. It can mimic the human marked and unmarked.

They move unseen through the Dakota’s front entrance in concert with Yoko Ono, as Ms. Ono transports bags of groceries with the aid of the doorman Clarence Talbert.

Although they are mere inches from Ono and the doorman. Thanks to the active camouflage field enveloping them. Neither Ms. Ono nor Clarence is aware of their presence.

Her verbose are not arcane incantations. To reiterate: magic is not possible in and around the Dakota for two city blocks. To the adept, they sound like cryptic scientific formula. Spoken equations that maintain her camo field? Nope. They are access codes for select aspects of the building. Codes that any hacker would relinquish their soul to possess. The codes are void when spoken by metal. They’re also null and void when uttered by flesh who’s unauthorized to use them.

For obvious reasons, the Dakota is a magnet for hackers. Figuratively speaking, the building is crack for hackers. Their Mount Everest, so to speak. Dozens of failed hacking attempts a day. And, yet, inside and outside of this building the surveillance is minimum thanks to the insistence of the building’s tenant association. Most of the building’s residents are well-heeled, the majority of whom are human. They value their privacy utmost; even at the risk of their safety, gossips say.

The building’s Brewsters are obvious, but discrete. Tastefully dressed. No gun bulges underneath their blazers. Not because their jackets are concealed carry. But, because they are not allowed to carry weapons of any type, especially guns, while doing their rounds. Gossips say that if security had been armed and surveillance wasn’t kept so lax, maybe John Lennon would still be alive today.

The two unseen follow Ono and Clarence through the foyer into the lobby proper. The majority of hackers never get this far. The flipside of tenants valuing their privacy to the point of it being a cult is that it’s quite “daunting” to say the least for unwanted guests to crash the party, so to speak.

What the girl and her robot partner are doing so surreptitiously is allowed for residents to do. As long as no [federal, state, or local] laws are broken, no resident’s privacy is invaded, and none of the building covenants are violated, a resident moving about cloaked is totally legit. In other words, personal stealth is allowed as along as it adheres strictly to the spirit and the letter of: “first do no harm”.

Six months later …

It’s the monthly tenant association’s meeting. Wade Wilson is making an impassioned plea for increased surveillance in response to the jump in hacking attempts against the Dakota. As usual, it falls on deaf ears. None of the mundane tenants are budging. They hold steadfast to their position of minimum intrusion into their personal lives, even if the electronic surveillance in question is meant to make their lives safer.

As for the supernatural residents. For example, people like the unrelated Millers: Penelope and Coco Miller. They are lukewarm about the subject. For reasons that are painfully obvious. Their safety hinges on what and whom they are. Both of which are formidable indeed.

Wade is parrying verbal assaults from all directions.

“And how many hacking attempts per day are made against the Dakota?”

“Several dozen.”

“And how many have proved to be successful?”

“Seven, to date.”

“In the entire history of the building?!”

“Yes.”

“And none of them made it past the second floor, where they were all caught without mishap to a single, solitary resident. Correct?”

“Yes.”

“One murder in the history of the building, Lennon’s, and that was outside?”

“Yes.”

“We’re whole lot safer in here than we ever will be out there in spite of all those damnable CCTV cameras.”

The chairman of the tenant association, Ms. Claire Bernice-Roundtree, strikes her gavel.

“Motion denied. Do I hear a second?”

A cacophony supplies the needed confirmation. Motion denied. Wade sits down, visibly frustrated. The elation of two of the people in the room has nothing to do with protection of privacy. Theirs is of a much more sinister nature.

Of the 35 weirdest advertisements from the 1970’s, here are my picks

It’s been 40 years since the end of the 1970’s and we should be very thankful that times have changed. Most of these products, and their ads, would be banned today. But we can still look back and laugh that these actually happened …

Dr Zimmerman’s Tuesday Tip — The Payoff Principle – 4 Approaches to Life and Work

Remember to Share this with a Friend!

The Payoff Principle Quiz

Success at work, at home, and in life is seldom due to luck.  It’s almost always due to the attitudes and behaviors you choose to use.

Did you catch the two key words in that last sentence?  The two words that make all the difference in the world.  They are … you choose.

If you choose (and develop) the right attitudes and behaviors, your success as a leader, manager, supervisor, team member, spouse, partner, parent, friend or any other role you play is a foregone conclusion.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is most people do not have attitudes and behaviors that are as good as theycould be.  So they get results that are good enough, rather than excellent.  Other people struggle through life, rather than sail through it.  And still others merely dream about their goals, rather than attain them.

That’s why I ask you, “Are you a Good-Enougher, a Struggler, a  Dreamer, or a Producer?”  

If you’re not sure, I’ve got a gift for you today – a test.  But don’t worry.  It’s a fun and easy test.   And if you want to ensure your place in the winner’s circle, go back and re-read my bookThe Payoff Principle: Discover the 3 Secrets for Getting What You Want out of Life and Work.

If you don’t have a copy of this book, get one.  It’s a gold mine of information and success strategies … so good that The Payoff Principle was just selected for the 2016 Silver Medal by Axiom Book Awards.

This simple, 15-question quiz will open your eyes to the 4 approaches to life and work, as well as the 3 secrets for getting what you really want out of life and work. You can click here to download a .pdf copy of the quiz.

The Last of Us [“First do no harm” (Latin: Primum non nocere)]

The original version of the Hippocratic Oath, in Greek, followed by the English translation:

ὄμνυμι Ἀπόλλωνα ἰητρὸν καὶ Ἀσκληπιὸν καὶ Ὑγείαν καὶ Πανάκειαν καὶ θεοὺς πάντας τε καὶπάσας, ἵστορας ποιεύμενος, ἐπιτελέα ποιήσειν κατὰ δύναμιν καὶ κρίσιν ἐμὴν ὅρκον τόνδε καὶσυγγραφὴν τήνδε:

ἡγήσεσθαι μὲν τὸν διδάξαντά με τὴν τέχνην ταύτην ἴσα γενέτῃσιν ἐμοῖς,καὶ βίου κοινώσεσθαι, καὶ χρεῶν χρηΐζοντι μετάδοσιν ποιήσεσθαι, καὶ γένος τὸ ἐξ αὐτοῦἀδελφοῖς ἴσον ἐπικρινεῖν ἄρρεσι, καὶ διδάξειν τὴν τέχνην ταύτην, ἢν χρηΐζωσι μανθάνειν,ἄνευ μισθοῦ καὶ συγγραφῆς, παραγγελίης τε καὶ ἀκροήσιος καὶ τῆς λοίπης ἁπάσης μαθήσιοςμετάδοσιν ποιήσεσθαι υἱοῖς τε ἐμοῖς καὶ τοῖς τοῦ ἐμὲ διδάξαντος, καὶ μαθητῇσισυγγεγραμμένοις τε καὶ ὡρκισμένοις νόμῳ ἰητρικῷ, ἄλλῳ δὲ οὐδενί.

διαιτήμασί τε χρήσομαιἐπ᾽ ὠφελείῃ καμνόντων κατὰ δύναμιν καὶ κρίσιν ἐμήν, ἐπὶ δηλήσει δὲ καὶ ἀδικίῃ εἴρξειν.

οὐδώσω δὲ οὐδὲ φάρμακον οὐδενὶ αἰτηθεὶς θανάσιμον, οὐδὲ ὑφηγήσομαι συμβουλίην τοιήνδε: ὁμοίως δὲ οὐδὲ γυναικὶ πεσσὸν φθόριον δώσω.

ἁγνῶς δὲ καὶ ὁσίως διατηρήσω βίοντὸν ἐμὸν καὶ τέχνην τὴν ἐμήν.

οὐ τεμέω δὲ οὐδὲ μὴν λιθιῶντας, ἐκχωρήσω δὲ ἐργάτῃσιν ἀνδράσι πρήξιος τῆσδε.

ἐς οἰκίας δὲ ὁκόσας ἂν ἐσίω, ἐσελεύσομαι ἐπ᾽ ὠφελείῃκαμνόντων, ἐκτὸς ἐὼν πάσης ἀδικίης ἑκουσίης καὶ φθορίης, τῆς τε ἄλλης καὶ ἀφροδισίωνἔργων ἐπί τε γυναικείων σωμάτων καὶ ἀνδρῴων, ἐλευθέρων τε καὶ δούλων.

ἃ δ᾽ ἂν ἐνθεραπείῃ ἢ ἴδω ἢ ἀκούσω, ἢ καὶ ἄνευ θεραπείης κατὰ βίον ἀνθρώπων, ἃ μὴ χρή ποτεἐκλαλεῖσθαι ἔξω, σιγήσομαι, ἄρρητα ἡγεύμενος εἶναι τὰ τοιαῦτα.

ὅρκον μὲν οὖν μοι τόνδεἐπιτελέα ποιέοντι, καὶ μὴ συγχέοντι, εἴη ἐπαύρασθαι καὶ βίου καὶ τέχνης δοξαζομένῳ παρὰπᾶσιν ἀνθρώποις ἐς τὸν αἰεὶ χρόνον: παραβαίνοντι δὲ καὶ ἐπιορκέοντι, τἀναντία τούτων.
I swear by Apollo Physician, by Asclepius, by Health, by Panacea and by all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses that I will carry out, according to my ability and judgment, this oath and this indenture.

To hold my teacher in this art equal to my own parents; to make him partner in my livelihood; when he is in need of money to share mine with him; to consider his family as my own brothers, and to teach them this art, if they want to learn it, without fee or indenture; to impart precept, oral instruction, and all other instruction to my own sons, the sons of my teacher, and to indentured pupils who have taken the physician’s oath, but to nobody else.

I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment, but never with a view to injury and wrong-doing. Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a course. Similarly I will not give to a woman a pessary to cause abortion. But I will keep pure and holy both my life and my art. I will not use the knife, not even, verily, on sufferers from stone, but I will give place to such as be craftsmen therein.

Into whatsoever houses I enter, I will enter to help the sick, and I will abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm, especially from abusing the bodies of man or woman, bond or free. And whatsoever I shall see or hear in the course of my profession, as well as outside my profession in my intercourse with men, if it be what should not be published abroad, I will never divulge, holding such things to be holy secrets.

Now if I carry out this oath, and break it not, may I gain for ever reputation among all men for my life and for my art; but if I transgress it and forswear myself, may the opposite befall me.

Modern version:

I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:

I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.

I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures which are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.

I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

I will not be ashamed to say “I know not,” nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient’s recovery.

I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially I must tread with care in matters of life and death. Above all, I must not play at God.

I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

Written in 1964 by Louis Lasagna, Academic Dean of the School of Medicine at Tufts University, and used in many medical schools today.

It is a popular misconception that the phrase “First do no harm” (LatinPrimum non nocere) is a part of the Hippocratic oath. Strictly speaking, the phrase does not appear in the oath, although the oath does contain “Also I will, according to my ability and judgment, prescribe a regimen for the health of the sick; but I will utterly reject harm and mischief”, in Latin “Victus quoque rationem ad aegrotantium salutem pro facultate, judicioque meo adhibebo, noxamvero et maleficium propulsabo”.

Another equivalent phrase is found in Epidemics, Book I, of the Hippocratic school: “Practice two things in your dealings with disease: either help or do not harm the patient”. The exact phrase is believed to have originated with the 19th-century surgeon Thomas Inman.

 

Kaley Cuoco Chanel is taking casual to a whole new level and getting away with pulling it off quite well. It’s best described as a Laissez-faire approach with feline overtones. Think: Eartha Kit as Catwoman in the old 1960’s Adam West Batman TV series.

She swaps between laying across the table of the interrogation room, sitting in the interviewee’s chair, and lounging in the interviewer’s chair. Dressed in monochrome black, Beatnik style. Smiling at the one-way glass as if she can see through the mirror into the observation room where Mondo and Wade Wilson are standing watching her.

During the day shift, Wade is the senior watch officer for the Dakota’s private security service. High-end joints like the Dakota don’t have security guards, they have Brewsters. What is a Brewster? A Brewster is what a security guard is called in a high-end joint. Whether male or female, they wear tweed blazers with leather elbow patches, penny-loafers, and khaki pants.

“So, she’s the one?”

“Yep. Trust fund baby. Medical school dropout. Half-Fallen.”

“Who’s the father?”

Wade shrugs his shoulders. Then answers.

“That’s above my pay grade.”

“But, you’ve heard rumors, nonetheless?”

“Rumor is, Lucifer, himself. Trouble is …”

“Gossips always say that about Half-Fallen.”

“Exactly.”

“Who was the mother?”

“Not was. Is. The mother is living. An heiress. Worth trillions.”

Mondo doesn’t need any more hints to figure out who Kaley’s mother is.

“You mean this Kaley is the daughter of the Audrey Chanel?”

“One in the same.”

“Thrill killer?”

“That was be my initial guess.”

“And now?”

“I’m thinking it goes much deeper than that. And, I’m thinking she’s got an accomplice.”

“Do tell.”

“Shall I start from the beginning?”

“Please do.”
