Peter Neverov, a classical concert pianist, is plagued by recurring thoughts of leading an inauthentic existence, as he travels from concert venue to concert venue. Feeling trapped in the life that he once dreamed for himself, Peter now reaches blindly for the human intimacy that his career has never afforded him. One night, at a hotel bar in Budapest, he meets Erika, a stunning call-girl. Initially shocked with her proposition to spend the night with him, he accepts her offer, hoping for a temporary palliative for the gnawing malaise from which he suffers. To his surprise, Peter discovers in Erika a charming and intelligent young woman who-much like him-is trapped in her own circumstances. Following a night that brings him not only physical pleasure, but, more important, an emotional respite, he becomes convinced that without her he will sink back into his unrelenting anxieties. He desperately tries to persuade her to remain with him for a few days longer, until his concert in Prague. There, he pleads with a reluctant Erika to follow him to New York, unmindful of the profound consequences such a move would have on both their lives.

Spiritualists cannot effectively refine their soul frequencies in an environment that does not match their soul vibration. The energy that is outside of us does affect our energy field and therefore our soul vibration. Being aware means that you understand this and take action to address it. In How to Create Positive Energy in Your Space, author Kasi Kaye Iliopoulos explains how you can assess your physical environment and its energetic imprint by looking at the location and structure and harmonising it by crystal gridding and Himalayan Salt placement to combat discord and electromagnetic smog. She also reveals the impact that previous residents, neighbours, and the past have on the present and describes ways to shift discordant energy by decluttering, cleansing, and interior design. Through the use of colour therapy, chakras, plants, flowers, aromas, sound, sacred geometry, and symbology, you can manifest light and positive energy in your home and space. These methods can help you continue on your path of restoring to your original soul template and living the life you came here to experience. This guide presents ways to evaluate the energetic imprint of the spaces around you and transform them into positive and helpful environments for you to inhabit.

Discordant Liver Xenotransplantation in Recipients with Liver Failure

"Liver xenotransplantation could eliminate the liver donor shortage, but currently it is not possible because of a lack of understanding of liver xenograft rejection.

"Liver xenotransplantation could eliminate the liver donor shortage, but currently it is not possible because of a lack of understanding of liver xenograft rejection. Hyperacute xenograft rejection is initiated by the binding of preformed naturally occurring xenoreactive antibodies (XNA) to the xenograft endothelium. The XNA bind to the xenograft endothelium, leading to complement-mediated endothelial injury." --

Importance: Patients with chronic life-limiting illness frequently use the Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) to document preferences for limiting intensive care. However, the incidence and predictors of POLST-discordant care near the end of life are not known. Objective: To describe the incidence, predictors, and intensity of POLST-discordant intensive care among patients hospitalized near the end of life. Design: Retrospective cohort study over 2010-2015. Setting: Two teaching hospitals in a large academic healthcare system. Participants: All POLST users with chronic life-limiting illness hospitalized during the last six months of life who died during 2010-2015. Exposure(s): Age, days from POLST completion to admission, history of cancer, history of dementia, admitting diagnosis of traumatic injury, and whether the patient signed his/her own POLST. Main Outcome(s) and Measure(s): POLST-discordant intensive care was defined as admission to the intensive care unit or cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) among patients whose preexisting POLST orders that would ordinarily preclude such care. Among recipients of POLST-discordant intensive care, we also measured life-sustaining treatments (invasive mechanical ventilation, vasoactive infusions, new renal replacement therapies, CPR). All outcomes were measured during the last hospitalization of life. Results: We identified 1,201 eligible decedents (mean [SD] age, 70.0 [14.6] years; 41% female), of whom 268 had POLST orders for “comfort measures only” (CMO) and 476 had orders for “limited additional interventions” (LAI). Among patients with treatment-limiting POLST orders, the incidence of POLST-discordant intensive care was 36% (95%CI 33-40%) [CMO: 28%, 95%CI 23-34%) ; LAI: 41%, 95%CI 37-46%], and the incidence of POLST-discordant life-sustaining treatment was 16% (95%CI 13-18%). Compared to patients without cancer, patients with cancer were less likely to receive POLST-discordant care (CMO: RR 0.51, 95%CI 0.32-0.80; LAI: RR 0.71, 95%CI 0.55-0.91). In the comfort-only group, patients with dementia were less likely to receive POLST-discordant care than those without dementia (RR 0.44, 95%CI 0.26-0.76), and patients admitted for traumatic injury were more likely to receive POLST-discordant care than those admitted for other diagnoses (RR 1.74, 95%CI 1.13-2.69). Patient age, timing of POLST, and POLST signer (patient vs. surrogate) were not independently associated with POLST-discordant care. Conclusions and Relevance: In an academic healthcare system, one in three patients with treatment-limiting POLST orders received POLST-discordant intensive care near the end of life. Patients with cancer or dementia were less likely to receive POLST-discordant care than those without these illnesses. Patients hospitalized for traumatic injury were more likely to receive POLST-discordant care. Our findings may guide future improvements in the implementation of the POLST.

Esteemed by many of his most distinguished contemporaries, including Arnold Schoenberg, Alexander Zemlinsky (1871-1942) was a protege of Brahms and Mahler. With centenary celebrations of Zemlinsky's birth, scholars began a careful examination of his works and realized they had discovered a forgotten master. Zemlinsky's wonderful melodic gift was manifested in operas, choral works, chamber music, and symphonic pieces, but was realized most fully in his more than 100 songs. Gorrell explores these songs and uses them as a lens through which to examine this important, highly influential musical figure of the 19th and 20th centuries.
