Singing Rainbows

As vocalists know, the nasal cavity, oral cavity, and pharynx play instrumental roles in the rich, resonating tones so essential to their art. Wouldn’t they be amazed that their instruments for producing euphony and coloratura can assume undulating, visual colors when rendered with medical imaging visualization technology? Such singing rainbows are evident in this three-dimensional computed tomographic image from virtual endoscopy, which reveals the left lateral wall of the nasopharynx, as seen from the right choana; the bulging torus tubarius and Rosenm├╝ller fossa (left), visible behind the semilunar-shaped recess for the pharyngeal opening of the eustachian tube; the left inferior nasal concha (center), seen projecting behind the posterior edge of the nasal septum; and the soft palate at the bottom.

Birds need you this Summer

Every year a large number of birds and stray animals die due to the ill effects of dehydration. It is mainly the result of the so called development and beautification drives, which are drying up the natural sources of water.

It is not only during hot summer days that animals need drinking water. Like humans, they need it everyday, throughout the year. But it is nowhere there. If you have seen the stray cows and dogs desperately licking the foul-smelling water seeping out of a gutter, you can well imagine their plight.

Everyone of us can make a dramatic change in this sad situation by a simple act of kindness - put up water bowls.

Put up water bowls on your roof, in a window, in the balcony, on the road, in a park – anywhere. It will be preferable to use earthen pots for the purpose. They don't tilt and are less likely to be stolen.
