Dr. Mrs. Dhanalakshmi De Sousa 1938-2005: A Tribute  [cached]
Avinash De Sousa
Mens Sana Monographs , 2006,
Abstract: It is always tough when one has to write a tribute to one's mother and tougher still when the same has to be written after her demise and when we remember her most. Yet I undertake this onerous task. Many people know her as the past Professor and Head of the Department of Psychiatry at Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical College and General Hospital, but it is the personal side of her personality that I wish to highlight here.Born on 3rd October 1938 and brought up in a traditional South Indian family, she lost her father at an early age when she was just 8 years old. Yet she struggled and studied hard, her efforts earning her an admission for the medical graduation course at Seth G.S. Medical College, Mumbai. She joined the Department of Psychiatry at K.E.M. Hospital in 1965 under Dr. V.N. Bagadia and said it was chance that led her to do so. Later she told me it was her destiny, as she had to meet her love and husband Dr. Alan De Sousa there.She was instrumental in starting the Child Guidance Clinic at Nair Hospital that has today risen to be one of the best in the city. She joined Sion Hospital in 1971 as a Honorary Professor and had an avid interest in teaching both post graduates and under graduate students. She worked there till 1989 when she retired as the Prof and Head of the Department. Her retirement was premature for which I take the blame. She always knew what her priorities were and gave me all the best she could. Once when I told her that she was too busy and did not have time for me, it was the very next day that she submitted her resignation from the Department. It was a courageous decision, one for which I hope I fulfill all her dreams. She had a special interest in child psychiatry, substance abuse and psychiatric problems in women.

Abstract: This paper pays a tribute to Dr. Frank I Tovey on his 90th birthday which happens on September 1, 2011, and briefly describes the major findings in his research career and contributions as follows. The geographical prevalence of duodenal ulceration is related to staple diets. Unrefined wheat and maize, soya, certain pulses and millets are associated with a low prevalence while refined wheat, maize and rice, yams, cassava and green banana with a high prevalence. Predominant foodstuffs from low prevalence areas are ulceroprotective in rat peptic ulcer models. The protective activity lies in the lipid fraction present in these foodstuffs. The lipid fraction also promotes ulcer healing, is active both orally and intramuscularly and is ulceroprotective against non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The phospholipids and phytosterols present in the lipid have been identified to be responsible for this protective activity. The combination of phospholipids and phytosterols may be of value in the prevention and treatment of duodenal ulceration and protection against the ulcerogenic effect of NSAIDs.

The parietal association cortex of the rat

Biological Research , 2008, DOI: 10.4067/S0716-97602008000400002
Abstract: spatial cognition is a complex higher function in mammals and is involved in a variety of tasks that can be explored in the laboratory. in this review we will discuss the role of the posterior parietal/anteromedial cortex of rodents, also known as the parietal association cortex, and the hippocampal formation in spatial navigation. we will also discuss other higher associational functions of the posterior parietal/anteromedial cortex as they relate to dr. pinto-hamuy's contribution to understanding behavioral functions.

A Tribute to Ingram Olkin  [PDF]
Edward I. George
Statistics , 2008, DOI: 10.1214/07-STS250
Abstract: It is with pleasure and pride that I introduce this special section in honor of Ingram Olkin. This tribute is especially fitting because, among the many profound and far-reaching contributions that he has made to our profession, Ingram Olkin was the key force behind the genesis of Statistical Science. As put so eloquently by Morrie DeGroot [1], the founding Executive Editor of Statistical Science.
The Reduction of Distributive Justice to Tribute
Paul Viminitz
Ethic@ : an International Journal for Moral Philosophy , 2004,
Abstract: Von Clausewitz thought that war is just the continuation of politics by other means. I hold that it s exactly the reverse. But if all political categories are reducible, without remainder, to military ones, to what are considerations of distributive justice reducible? Tribute? Precisely! But is it helpful to view issues of distributive justice this way? I argue that it is. The folk-vocabulary acquiesced to by traditional political philosophy may swell our hearts. But it leaves political counsel decidedly undecidable, and it renders us vulnerable to exploitations against which military vocabulary offers us much better protection. This reduction is, I concede, more than a tad disgusting. But so is most life-saving surgery!
