Infectious disease (medical specialty)

Infectious diseases known as infectology, is a medical specialty dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of infections. An infectious disease specialist's practice may consist of managing nosocomial infections, or it may be out-patient based. Infectious diseases specialists serve as consultants to other physicians in cases of complex infections, manage patients with HIV/AIDS and other forms of Immunodeficiency. Although many common infections are treated by physicians without formal expertise in infectious diseases, specialists may be consulted for cases where an infection is difficult to diagnose or manage, they may be asked to help determine the cause of a fever of unknown origin. Specialists in infectious diseases can practice both in clinics. In hospitals, specialists in infectious diseases help ensure the timely diagnosis and treatment of acute infections by recommending the appropriate diagnostic tests to identify the source of the infection and by recommending appropriate antibiotics to treat infection.

For certain types of infections, involvement of specialists in infectious diseases may improve patient outcomes. In clinics, specialists in infectious diseases can provide long-term care to patients with chronic infections such as HIV/AIDS. Infectious diseases is associated with travel medicine and tropical medicine, as many diseases acquired in tropical and subtropical areas are infectious in nature. Infectious diseases specialists employ a variety of diagnostic tests to help identify the pathogen, causing an infection. Common tests include Gram staining, blood cultures, serological tests and polymerase chain reaction. Infectious diseases specialists employ a variety of antimicrobial agents to help treat infections; the type of antimicrobial depends on the organism, causing the infection. Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections. In the United States, infectious diseases is a subspecialty of internal medicine and pediatrics i.e. an internist does at least an additional two years of a fellowship and a pediatrician does at least three years to qualify as an infectious diseases specialist and take the infectious diseases board certification exam of the American Board of Internal Medicine or the American Board of Pediatrics.

The exam has been given as a subspecialty of internal medicine since 1972 and as a subspecialty of pediatrics since 1994. Media related to Infectious disease at Wikimedia Commons IDSA - Infectious Diseases Society of America

Since the cultural policies of Sweden have been revised by the Riksdag a number of times. In 1996, the special significance of literature was highlighted through the adoption of a separate piece of legislation, the Library Act.

3v3 Soccer

3v3 Soccer is a variety of soccer played between two teams. Each team may only have three players on the field at a time; this style of soccer is more referred to as a "small-sided" game, as compared to a full-sided game with larger teams. The field used is smaller than a regulation soccer pitch, instead it is 30 yards wide by 40 yards long, although these dimensions vary quite a bit when the game is played indoors due to the varied styles and sizes of indoor pitches, it uses a much smaller goal than full-sided soccer. In most 3v3 there is no keeper, although 3v3 Micro Soccer, does use a keeper. "3v3 Soccer" is claimed to be the fastest growing form of soccer in the World having 112 employees. Its greatest popularity is in the United States, where hundreds, thousands of tournaments take place each year. Nike helped to popularize it with its international Joga3 Joga Bonito Tour in 2006, in which teams qualified at local events around the World, culminating in a big 3v3 World Cup played in Brazil.3v3 is a much faster paced, higher scoring game than traditional full-sided soccer.

The speed of the attack, the use of triangulation, the strategies bring aspects of hockey into the game. The quick shift from one end of the field to the other after a goal is scored, or upon loss of possession is reminiscent of basketball, it requires the blending of individual skills with teamwork. The sport's gain in popularity is due to every member of the team getting equal playing time, equal touches on the ball. All players on the field are a part of the play; because of the speed of the game, the fact that players are in motion, there are frequent substitutions. A typical player may be rotated on six times or more in one game. There are no permanently assigned positions as there are in full-sided soccer, giving each team member equal status and equal importance; this helps to develop individual skills. There are three major tours in the United States: Colorado based Kick it 3v3 Soccer http://www.kickit3v3.com/ with their World Championships held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida.

Compania General De Tabacos De Filipinas v. Collector of Internal Revenue

Compania General De Tabacos De Filipinas v Collector of Internal Revenue, 275 US 87 is a US tax law case during the Lochner era of the US Supreme Court. A Spanish corporation, Compania General De Tebacos De Filipinas, claimed that a tax on goods it shipped was unlawfully imposed by the Collector of Internal Revenue; the company bought goods, stored them in a Philippine warehouse, notified the value to its Barcelona head office, which insured them through a company in London. The company claimed a tax statute of the Philippines was contrary to the Act of Congress of August 29, 1916, c. 416, § 3, 39 Stat. 545, 546, 547, as depriving it of its property without due process of law, as departing from the requirement in the same section that the rules of taxation shall be uniform. The Supreme Court of the Philippines upheld the tax; the US Supreme Court held. Holmes J dissented on reasoning, not result, joined by Brandeis J; the plaintiff's reliance is upon Louisiana, 165 U. S. 578, 17 S. Ct. 427, 41 L. Ed.

832, in which it was held that a fine could not be imposed by the State for sending a notice similar to the present to an insurance company out of the State. But it seems to me that the tax was justified and that this case is distinguished from that of Allgeyer and from St. Louis Cotton Compress Co. v. Arkansas, 260 U. S. 346, 43 S. Ct. 125, 67 L. Ed. 297, by the difference between a penalty and a tax. It is true, as indicated in the last cited case, that every exaction of money for an act is a discouragement to the extent of the payment required, but that which in its immediacy is a discouragement may be part of an encouragement when seen in its organic connection with the whole. Taxes are, including the chance to insure. A penalty on the other hand is intended altogether to prevent the thing punished, it may be seen that a State may tax things that under the Constitution as interpreted it can not prevent. The constitutional right asserted in Allgeyer v. Louisiana to earn one's livelihood by any lawful calling is consistent, as we all know, with the calling being taxed.

Sometimes there may be a difficulty in deciding whether an imposition is a tax or a penalty, but the intent to prohibit when it exists is plainly expressed. Sometimes when it is called a tax the requirement is shown to be a penalty by its excess in amount over the tax in similar cases, as in St. Louis Cotton Compress Co. v. Arkansas, but in the present instance there is no room for doubt. The charge not only is called a tax but is the same in amount as that imposed where the right to impose it is not denied.
