New History & Physical podcast by kvnwng, amolutrankar, and thebiopsy:

There’s a lot going on social media regarding sharing information, discussion and, most importantly, authorship. The typical notion of publication in medicine — getting an article or paper in a prestigious journal with high impact factor — is falling to the wayside as the democratization of information renders researchers, physicians and medical students more accessible.

We had a chance to talk with Ajay Major and Aleena Paul, two enterprising medical students from Albany Medical College, on how they are contributing to that movement. The duo are the founders and editors-in-chief of in-Training, our collaborators for this podcast, and are bent on creating a space online where medical student voices can be heard.

Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.

You are
The quiet
Between the notes.
You are in

m.v., What it is to love. (via findingwordsforthoughts)

i don’t need you
to fight my battles,
i just need
for you to be there
when my hands
begin to tremble
and my voice breaks,
to help me
steady my sword
and teach me
how to roar.

m.v., I am my own savior, you are a companion. (via bookphile)

The idea that intelligence is linked to English pronunciation is a legacy from colonial thinking.
