By Andrew Jamison, MD Editor’s Note:  You saw the pictures and were in awe that cold day in January 2009 when US Airways Flight 1549 made an emergency landing on the Hudson River, and all the passengers and crew survived. What you may not have known is that a CMDA member, Richard (Andrew) Jamison, MD, was on that plane. This is his story. Flying Standby Toward Charlotte On January 15, 2009, I was in New York City for a residency interview. I had a ticket on a 9:30 p.m. flight, since there didn’t seem to be a chance of catching the earlier 2:45 flight, but when the interview ended early, I got on standby for Flight 1549. Like any other plane trip, I wasn’t paying much attention, at the start. I had been reading two books during ...

Pratt responded by simply saying, “I’ll be praying for them, man. That’s too bad.” After signing seve...

Atheistic Worldview is Actually Exposed in this Recent Hollywood Movie! By Vishal Mangalwadi THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY (2015) is a film about the clash between Augustinian view of mathematics and its secularised, atheistic corruption that ruled Trinity College, Cambridge, before and during WWI. The conflict becomes interesting because the Augustin’s Christian view is articulated by a goddess worshipping, Hindu Mathematical genius, Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887 - 1920), wonderfully played by Dev Patel. Secularised (atheist) mathematics is presented by Ramanujan’s maverick mentor, G. H. Hardy (1877 - 1947), performed by Jeremy Irons. The actors breathe life into an abstract and potentially boring subject. Present throughout ...
 

 
Another Illogical Theory Bites the Dust
Another Illogical Theory Bites the Dust

Another Illogical Theory Bites the Dust: Infants Prefer Toys Typed to Their Sex Another illogical theory just bit the dust. A City University of London study has found that infants as young as nine months prefer to play with toys matching their own sex. The study showed that boys who are 9 to 17-months-old, 18 to 23 months and 24 to 32 months favored playing with cars, balls and blue teddy bears, while girls of the same ages preferred playing with dolls, cooking pots and pink teddy bears. Thus, the politically correct, illogical theory that boys and girls play with different toys because of social pressure now seems highly doubtful. “Our results show there are significant sex differences across all three age groups,” said co-au...
