Infraspinatus muscle

In human anatomy, the infraspinatus muscle is a thick triangular muscle, which occupies the chief part of the infraspinatous fossa. As one of the four muscles of the rotator cuff, the main function of the infraspinatus is to externally rotate the humerus and stabilize the shoulder joint, it attaches medially to the infraspinous fossa of the scapula and laterally to the middle facet of the greater tubercle of the humerus. The muscle arises by fleshy fibers from the medial two-thirds of the infraspinatous fossa, by tendinous fibers from the ridges on its surface; the fibers converge to a tendon, which glides over the lateral border of the spine of the scapula and passing across the posterior part of the capsule of the shoulder-joint, is inserted into the middle impression on the greater tubercle of the humerus. The trapezoidal insertion of the infraspinatus onto the humerus is much larger than the equivalent insertion of the supraspinatus, the reason why the infraspinatus is involved in rotator cuff tears about as as the supraspinatus.

The tendon of this muscle is sometimes separated from the capsule of the shoulder-joint by a bursa, which may communicate with the joint cavity. The suprascapular nerve innervates the infraspinatus muscles; these muscles function to abduct and laterally rotate the arm, respectively. The infraspinatus is fused with the teres minor; the infraspinatus is the main external rotator of the shoulder. When the arm is fixed, it adducts the inferior angle of the scapula, its synergists are teres minor and the deltoid. The infraspinatus and teres minor rotate the head of the humerus outward. Additionally, the infraspinatus reinforces the capsule of the shoulder joint. From an evolutionary prospective, the pectoral muscles – the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor – are thought to have evolved from a primitive muscle sheet that connected the coracoid to the humerus. In late reptilians and early mammals, this muscle structure was displaced dorsally; this article incorporates text in the public domain from page 441 of the 20th edition of Gray's Anatomy Saladin, Kenneth.

Deadline (1995 TV series)

Deadline is a British fly-on-the-wall documentary series following the journalists at Yorkshire Television's local news service, Calendar. It was broadcast as a series of six episodes on Channel 4 from 20 March to 1 May 1995 as part of its Whose News? season. Yorkshire Television agreed to allow access to Channel 4's fly-on-the-wall documentary series following ITN's refusal to take part in the project. Most of the Calendar team took part in the documentary rather than be accused of hypocrisy; the documentary crew spent three months following the newsgatherers at Yorkshire TV. Some material was removed from the broadcast version. Journalist Alan Hardwick was captured making some, what The Guardian's media editor labels "fairly abusive", remarks about criminals. Ackroyd reports that some people refused to sign release forms, and'no filming' areas were established. Yorkshire TV were unhappy at the documentary's press release, which began: "Coming up in just a moment, the biggest petunia in the world – and the man whose grown it.

But first, the Bradford murder." Channel 4 thought that the sentence reflected Calendar's diverse content, but Yorkshire were concerned that it made them look silly. The press was requested not to use the offending words; the first episode focussed upon the media coverage of the disappearance of schoolgirl Lindsay Rimer in November 1994, whose body was recovered shortly after the episode was broadcast. This first episode covered more trivial stories, such as the launch of a new cheese, a live interview with Coronation Street actress Lynne Perrie, promoting her autobiography. Tom Sutcliffe, in The Independent, expressed concern over the length of the series, suggesting that it might become "too much of a good thing" and the focus upon a regional news service rather than "the great national juggernauts". Much of Sutcliffe's criticisms were about the journalistic practices and integrity of the Calendar team. Deadline on IMDb

Lionel CantĂș

Lionel Cantú Jr. was an assistant professor of sociology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, who focused on queer theory, queer issues, Latin American immigration. His groundbreaking dissertation, The Sexuality of Migration: Border Crossings and Mexican Immigrant Men, edited and published posthumously, focuses on the experiences of Mexican-queer migrants. Lionel Cantú Jr. was born in San Antonio, Texas, to parents Lionel and Rosario Cantú. He was one four siblings: Rose Louise and Rachel Diane; as a San Antonio native, Cantú attended the University of Texas at San Antonio and graduated with a Bachelor's in Psychology and Spanish in 1991. He continued his education at the University of California, where he held the title of co-chair of the university's Lesbian and Gay Faculty/Staff network for nearly six years, while founding a speaker series on sexuality-related topics called, the Lilac Collective. In 1998, Cantú was named University of California, Irvine's Lauds and Laurels Outstanding Graduate Student, earned his Master's and Doctoral degrees in social science with a focus on social relations and feminist studies in 1999.

That year, he became an assistant professor in sociology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, received a UC President's Doctoral Fellowship to become a University of California, Davis postdoctoral researcher studying “how American gay culture was becoming globalized and commodified.” Much of Dr. Lionel Cantú's literary work focuses on queer issues, migrant issues and ethnicity, U. S. Latinos, his high regard among sociologists, however, is a result of his extensive research on how and when issues of sexuality and migration intersect. Cantú's dissertation, Border Crossings: Mexican Men and the Sexuality of Migration, is an example of how he explored the new area of research, which concerns Mexican men who have sex with men and how their sexual identity alters in multiple cultural settings, his book of a similar title, The Sexuality of Migration: Border Crossings and Mexican Immigrant Men, was published posthumously in 2009 by New York University Press, was compiled and edited by Nancy A. Naples and Salvador Vidal-Ortiz.

Cantu et al. Take up the issue of the relationship of homosexuals to immigration policies and nationalist discourse in his essay, “Well Founded Fear, Political Asylum and the Boundaries of Sexual Identity in the US-Mexico Borderlands.” In particular, Cantu discusses the complex performance of sexuality and race expected from gay asylum seekers, thus reinforcing the conventional notions of gender and sexuality in a transnational crossroad that facilitates movement of commodities and people. He discusses how the US asylum system and nationalist discourse problematize the transnational intersections of race and sexuality because,“The asylum system was generating new, essentializing constructions of sexuality that functioned within nationalist logics, thereby re-inscribing borders that globalization had blurred”. In the article “De Ambiente: Queer Tourism and Shifting Boundaries of Mexican Male Sexualities,” published in 2002, Cantú uses oral histories from individuals involved in the queer travel industry to discusses the themes of otherness and political economies in relation to sexual identities among Mexican men.

He utilizes the example of a new national project based on Gay and Lesbian tourism in Mexico to argue that, industrialization, urbanization have created queer spaces of legitimacy and a commodified gay presence. While providing an overview of the economic ties between the U. S and Mexico, which he argues to be influenced by NAFTA and the actions of the PRI political party, Cantú discusses other major themes such as western queer imaginaries, sexual norms, neocolonialism; the article goes on to analyze the relationship Queer Tourism has with economic links of power. Through his discussion of Queer tourism, Cantú interrogates gender norms using ethnographic methodologies. Cantu Jr.’s ethnographic evidence examines sexual colonization and transmigration between Mexico and the U. S; the article focuses on researching the dynamic status of Queer attitudes and identities reflected by national projects of modernity in Mexico. Cantu uses different reflections on perceived sexual imaginaries occupying Mexico, creating an analysis of shifting transnational attitudes.

Lionel Cantú Jr. is the co-editor of the 2005 book Queer Migrations: Sexuality, U. S. Citizenship, Border Crossings. In Queer Migrations, Cantú Jr. Luibheid, their scholarly contributors deal with queer immigration studies and questions of legitimacy; the book aims to provide documentation of the influence sexuality and queer identities have on transmigration. Cantu Jr. Luibheid, some of their contributors use ethnographic methodologies to discuss the experiences of queer immigrants of color; the book includes an analysis of citizenship and the documentation process in relation to queer immigrants of color. Queer Migrations uses anthropological approaches to discuss queer sexual identities and transmigration. Cantu and some contributors use oral histories of gay and lesbian trans migrants to document marginalization within the migration process; the testimonios collected by the authors document the marginalization apparent at border locations within the U. S. Queer Migrations documents multiple examples of exploitation and sexualization revolving around U.

S. border structural institutions. Following hospitalization and surgery to attend to a ruptured lower intestine, Dr. Lionel Cantú died unexpectedly of cardiac arrest on May 26, 2002. Cantú is survived by his life partner, Hernando Mol
