Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah’s Ark

One : Don’t miss the boat.
Two : Remember that we are all in the same boat.
Three : Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.
Four : Stay fit When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
Five : Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
Six : Build your future on high ground.
Seven : For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
Eight : Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
Nine : When you’re stressed, float a while.
Ten : Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
Eleven : No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting…

Acute effect of alcohol on Hearing Threshold

There is very little knowledge about alcohol-induced hearing loss. Alcohol consumption and tolerance to loud noise is a well observed phenomenon as seen in the Western world where parties get noisier by the hour as the evening matures. This leads to increase in the referrals to the "hearing aid clinic" and the diagnosis of "cocktail party deafness" which may not necessarily be only due to presbyacusis or noise-induced hearing loss.

Dislosure Article

A perennial player in the media spotlight on biomedical publishing is the elusive “conflict of interest,” periodically invoked as the culprit for distorted or inappropriate research conclusions. One solution to the problem—full disclosure—has its merits but, as discovered by the unfortunate author below, is not a panacea.

I feel that tracheal resection is not possible as the tumor is extending into submucosa of Cricoid cartilage.
One option is endoscopic shaving of the tumor with a microdebrider.
Should the larynx be stented after that?
Can the procedure(tumor shaving) cause subglottic stenosis?
Intra-tracheal mass is too large to be ablated by Radio-iodine.
