For the ancient monasterial worker, see AuscultareAuscultation is listening to the internal sounds of the body using a stethoscope. Auscultation is performed for the purposes of examining the circulatory and respiratory systems, as well as the alimentary canal; the term was introduced by René Laennec. The act of listening to body sounds for diagnostic purposes has its origin further back in history as early as Ancient Egypt. Laënnec's contributions were refining the procedure, linking sounds with specific pathological changes in the chest, inventing a suitable instrument to mediate between the patient's body and the clinician's ear. Auscultation is a skill that requires substantial clinical experience, a fine stethoscope and good listening skills. Health professionals listen to three main organs and organ systems during auscultation: the heart, the lungs, the gastrointestinal system; when auscultating the heart, doctors listen for abnormal sounds, including heart murmurs and other extra sounds coinciding with heartbeats.

Heart rate is noted. When listening to lungs, breath sounds such as wheezes and crackles are identified; the gastrointestinal system is auscultated to note the presence of bowel sounds. Electronic stethoscopes can be recording devices, can provide noise reduction and signal enhancement; this is helpful for purposes of teaching. This opened the field to computer-aided auscultation. Ultrasonography inherently provides capability for computer-aided auscultation, portable US portable echocardiography, replaces some stethoscope auscultation, although not nearly all of it; the sounds of auscultation can be depicted using symbols to produce an auscultogram. It is used in cardiology training. Mediate auscultation is an antiquated medical term for listening to the internal sounds of the body using an instrument a stethoscope, it is opposed to immediate auscultation. It was demonstrated in the 2000s that Doppler auscultation using an hand-held ultrasound transducer enables the auscultation of valvular movements and blood flow sounds that are undetected during cardiac examination with a stethoscope.

The Doppler auscultation presented a sensitivity of 84% for the detection of aortic regurgitations, while classic stethoscope auscultation presented a sensitivity of 58%. Moreover, Doppler auscultation was superior in the detection of impaired ventricular relaxation. Since the physics of Doppler auscultation and classic auscultation are different, it has been suggested that both methods could complement each other.

Songs of a Sourdough

Songs of a Sourdough is a book of poetry published in 1907 by Robert W. Service. In the United States, the book was published under the title The Spell of the Yukon and Other Verses; the book is well known for its verse about the Klondike Gold Rush in the Yukon a decade earlier the long, humorous ballads, "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" and "The Cremation of Sam McGee." Songs of a Sourdough has sold more than three million copies. Service, an employee of the Imperial Bank of Canada, was posted to Whitehorse, Yukon, in 1904, he "took part in the active Whitehorse social life. As was popular at the time he recited at concerts – things like "Casey at the Bat" and "Gunga Din", but they were getting stale."One day, while pondering what to recite at an upcoming church concert he met E. J. "Stroller" White, editor of the Whitehorse Star. White suggested: "Why don’t you write a poem for it? Give us something about our own bit of earth. We sure would appreciate it. There’s a rich paystreak waiting for someone to work.

Why don’t you go in and stake it?"Out on a walk one Saturday night, Service heard the sounds of revelry coming from a saloon, the phrase "A bunch of the boys were whooping it up" popped into his head. Inspired, he ran to the bank to write it down, by the next morning "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" was complete."A month or so he heard a gold rush yarn from a Dawson mining man about a fellow who cremated his pal." He spent the night walking in the woods composing "The Cremation of Sam McGee," and wrote it down from memory the next day. Other verses followed. "In the early spring he stood above the heights of Miles Canyon... the line'I have gazed on naked grandeur where there’s nothing else to gaze on' came into his mind and again he hammered out a complete poem, “The Call of the Wild". Conversations with locals led Service to write about things, he did not set foot in Dawson City until 1908, arriving in the Klondike ten years after the Gold Rush when his renown as a writer was established. After having collected enough poems for a book, Service "sent the poems to his father, who had emigrated to Toronto, asked him to find a printing house so they could make it into a booklet.

He enclosed a cheque to cover the costs and intended to give these booklets away to his friends in Whitehorse" for Christmas. His father took the manuscript to William Briggs in Toronto. "The foreman and printers recited the ballads. A salesman read the proofs out loud as they came off the typesetting machines." An "enterprising salesman sold 1700 copies in advance orders from galley proofs." The publisher "sent Robert's cheque back to him and offered a ten percent royalty contract for the book."Service's book, Songs of a Sourdough, was "an immediate success." It went through seven printings before its official release date. Briggs "sold fifteen impressions in 1907; that same year there was an edition in New York and London. The London publisher, T. Fisher Unwin, struck a twenty-third printing in 1910, thirteen more by 1917.""When copies of the book reached Whitehorse, Robert's own minister took him aside to let him know how wicked were his stories. Service hung his head in shame.... But, that summer, tourists from the south arrived in Whitehorse looking for the famous poet.

The book contains these poems: "The Land God Forgot" "The Spell of the Yukon" "The Heart of the Sourdough" "The Three Voices" "The Law of the Yukon" "The Parson's Son" "The Call of the Wild" "The Lone Trail" "The Pines" "The Lure of Little Voices" "The Song of the Wage-Slave" "Grin" "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" "The Cremation of Sam McGee" "My Madonna" "Unforgotten" "The Reckoning" "Quatrains" "The Men That Don't Fit" "Music in the Bush" "The Rhyme of the Remittance Man" "The Low Down White" "The Little Old Log Cabin" "The Younger Son" "The March of the Dead" ""Fighting Mac"" "The Woman and the Angel" "The Rhyme of the Restless Ones" "New Year's Eve" "Comfort" "The Harpy" "Premonition" "The Tramps" "L'Envoi" "The Spell of the Yukon and Other Verses".

In Loving Memories: The Jerry Lee Lewis Gospel Album

In Loving Memories: The Jerry Lee Lewis Gospel Album is an album by Jerry Lee Lewis, released on Mercury Records in 1971. Lewis's love for gospel music is well documented; as a teenager, Lewis studied at the Southwest Bible Institute in Waxahachie, Texas before being thrown out for daring to play a boogie-woogie version of "My God Is Real," and that early incident foreshadowed his lifelong conflict over his faith to God and his love of playing "the devil's music." Lewis had a recorded argument with Sam Phillips during the recording session for "Great Balls of Fire," a song he refused to record because he considered it blasphemous. Lewis endured years of condemnation from his cousin, evangelist Jimmy Lee Swaggart, who never passed up an opportunity to criticize Lewis's lifestyle. In the 1990 documentary The Jerry Lee Lewis Story, an intense Lewis, who could quote the Bible backwards and forwards, explains to the interviewer, "The Bible don't speak of religion. No word of religion is in the Bible.

Sanctification! Are you sanctified? Have you been saved? See, I was a good preacher, I know my Bible... And for you to receive the third part of the Trinity, the Holy Ghost -, evidence of speaking in other tongues where you get the Holy Ghost - it will not dwell in an unclean temple, and to receive the greatest gift in the world, the Holy Ghost, you're gonna have to get your heart pure and clean... I find myself falling short of the glory of God." "Falling short" may have been putting it mildly, but Lewis's faith was always best demonstrated through his music, gospel music always remained part of his repertoire. After a string of hit country albums, he decided to record a proper gospel album for the first time in 1970; the decision may have been informed by the failing health of his mother Mamie, a bedrock of support to him. Lewis produced the album himself with his sister Linda Gail Lewis, who wrote on the back jacket that "Jerry Lee has always played his own style of Gospel music." In addition to the usual ace musicians that accompanied him on his recent Mercury albums, Lewis is backed by the Jordanaires and the Nashville Sounds.

The album features well known Gospel songs that country music listeners would have been quite familiar with, such as "I'll Fly Away" and "Lily of the Valley" as well as three songs composed by Linda Gail and Lewis's manager Cecil Harrelson. The album's appearance came shortly after an all-gospel show performed and recorded at a Church of God in Memphis, which would surface in 1986 on a Bear Family box set. In Loving Memories was released in 1971 and, promoted by indulgent Mercury executives, rose to number 18 on the Billboard country album charts. Greg Adams of AllMusic singles out "My God's Not Dead" and "I'll Fly Away" for praise and observes that "Lewis' dynamic and exuberant playing is rooted in his enthusiastic religious upbringing, but the contradictions inherent in a hedonistic, so-called'Killer"'cousin of Jimmy Swaggart do not put him first on the list of spiritual leaders; these personal conflicts lend a certain tension to Lewis' gospel music, whether or not you believe the humility and servitude he professes."

In his book Jerry Lee Lewis: Lost and Found, biographer Joe Bonomo calls "He Looked Beyond My Fault" "staggering." "In Loving Memories" "The Lily of the Valley" "Gather'Round Children" "My God's Not Dead" "He Looked Beyond My Fault" "Old Rugged Cross" "I'll Fly Away" "I'm Longing for Home" "I Know That Jesus Will Be There" "Too Much to Gain to Lose" "If We Never Meet Again"/"I'll Meet You in the Morning"

Lougheed House

Built in 1891 and known as "Beaulieu", the French meaning "beautiful place", Lougheed House is a national historic site located in the Beltline district of Calgary, Alberta. Lougheed House is operated by Lougheed House Conservation Society, an independent, non-profit society devoted to the restoration and public enjoyment of the historic house and its Gardens. Over its long history, Lougheed House has been a family residence, a training centre for young women, a women's military barracks and a blood donor clinic. For many years, it sat empty — cared for, but unused until its restoration started in 2000; the mansion was built in 1891 by Senator James Alexander Lougheed for his wife, Isabella Hardisty Lougheed and their two sons and Norman. Following the move to the large mansion, four more children were born: Edgar, Dorothy and Marjorie. In 1907 the house was enlarged to accommodate their large social calendar; the mansion was built of sandstone per the municipal building code as a result of the Calgary Fire of 1886.
