Chiasm (anatomy)

In anatomy a chiasm is the spot where two structures cross, forming an X-shape. This can be: A tendinous chiasm is the spot where two tendons cross. For example, the tendon of the flexor digitorum superficialis muscle, the tendon of the flexor digitorum longus muscle which forms two chiasms. In neuroanatomy, a chiasm is the crossing of the crossing of two nerves. Different types of crossings of nerves are referred to as chiasm: Type I: Two nerves can cross one over the other without fusing, e.g. the trochlear nerve. Type II:Two nerves can merge while at least part of the fibres cross the midline. Type III: The fibres within a single nerve cross, such that the order of the functional map is reversed, e.g. the optic chiasms of various invertebrates such as insects and cephalopods. Type IV: A torsion or loop by 180 degrees of a nerve can reverse the order of the functional map; this type is not referred to as chiasm. Note that in the third type there is no crossing of the mid sagittal plane. Only in the first type, the crossing is complete.

There are other kinds of crossings of nerve fibres. The chiasm is distinguished from a decussation, a crossing of nerve fibres inside the central nervous system. A chiasm differs from a ganglion in that axons run through it without making any synapses. A chiasm is thus not a nervous processing centre. By far the most known chiasm is the optic chiasm in vertebrate animals, including ourselves. See Chiasms are found in vertebrates but in invertebrates; the optic chiasm in vertebrates can be of type I or II. However, an optic chiasm of type III is found in cephalopods. In vertebrates three of the cranial nerves show a chiasm; the Optic chiasm of the optic tract The chiasm of the Trochlear nerve The decussation of part of the Oculomotor nerve The optic chiasm of vertebrates involves the optic tract. The trochlear nerve is a motor nerve that innervates one of the muscles that move the contralateral eye, it emerges from the dorsal aspect of the ventral midbrain, leaves the brain on the dorsal side where it crosses to the opposite side.

The oculomotor nerve originates from the third nerve nucleus at the level of the superior colliculus in the midbrain. The rostral part of the nerve crosses the midline to merge with the part of the contralateral nerve that does not cross. Since the midline crossing occurs inside the brain, it is not a chiasm but rather a decussation; as stated above different kinds of nerve crossings are known as chiasm. The optic chiasm of vertebrates is the best known; the optic nerve runs from the retina towards the ventral midline of the brain and crosses to the opposite side to continue as the optic tract which inserts to the optic tectum ) on the dorsal midbrain. In many vertebrates, the left-eye optic nerve crosses without blending. In mammals and birds and other vertebrates with frontal eyes, the optic nerves do blend in the optic chiasm, only part of the nerve fibres cross the midline; the drawings of Cajal suggest that the axons of the optic nerve may branch in the optic chiasm, thus give off a branch both in the ipsi- and contralateral optic tract.

Note, that such branching is not neural processing as occurs in a ganglion. The optic tract of various clades of insects shows the first and second optic chiasm. In contrast to those in vertebrates, the insect chiasms do not cross the body midline. Rather, the first and second chiasm invert the posterior visual field. Since there are two chiasms, the retinotopic map is not affected. Cephalopods possess developed lens eyes; the optic tract of cephalopods, such as the squid Loligo, chiasmates without midline crossing. This chiasm is distributed along the optic tract and compensates the inversion of the image on the retina; this type is not called chiasm. Such a looping occurs, for example, in the optic tract between the optic chiasm and the optic tectum. Another example is the optic radiation which rotates the retinal map on the visual cortex by 180°. A number of theories have been proposed to explain the existence of the optic chiasm in vertebrates; the first is these theories. The axial twist hypothesis explains the chiasm of the trochlear nerve.

The hypothesis of Cajal might be valid for the optic chiasm of cephlopods, although in a different manner, because Cajal designed his idea for a chiasm of type II but the cephalopod chiasm os of type III. The lens eye inverts the visual image, projected on the retina due to the camera obscura effect; the chiasm in the optic tract of cephalopods corrects this inversion. In insects, the optic chiasms seem to have evolved since primitive groups have no chiasm, whereas evolved groups have one or two optic chiasms along the optic lobe. In jawless vertebrates, the optic tracts do cross in the midline, but only after entering the ventral side of the central nervous system. After crossing the tracts insert on the dorsal optic tectum as in all other vertebrates. Therefore, given the obvious and undisputed homology, the optic chiasm is called chiasm in these clades though the crossing is technically a decussation.

A Theory of Justice

A Theory of Justice is a 1971 work of political philosophy and ethics by the philosopher John Rawls, in which the author addresses the problem of distributive justice. The theory uses an updated form of Kantian philosophy and a variant form of conventional social contract theory. Rawls's theory of justice is a political theory of justice as opposed to other forms of justice discussed in other disciplines and contexts; the resultant theory was challenged and refined several times in the decades following its original publication in 1971. A significant reappraisal was published in the 1985 essay "Justice as Fairness", a subsequent book under the same title, within which Rawls further developed his two central principles for his discussion of justice. Together, they dictate that society should be structured so that the greatest possible amount of liberty is given to its members, limited only by the notion that the liberty of any one member shall not infringe upon that of any other member. Secondly, inequalities – either social or economic – are only to be allowed if the worst off will be better off than they might be under an equal distribution.

If there is such a beneficial inequality, this inequality should not make it harder for those without resources to occupy positions of power – for instance, public office. First published in 1971, A Theory of Justice was revised in 1975, while translated editions were being released in the 1990s it was further revised in 1999. In 2001, Rawls published. In A Theory of Justice, Rawls argues for a principled reconciliation of liberty and equality, meant to apply to the basic structure of a well-ordered society. Central to this effort is an account of the circumstances of justice, inspired by David Hume, a fair choice situation for parties facing such circumstances, similar to some of Immanuel Kant's views. Principles of justice are sought to guide the conduct of the parties; these parties are recognized to face moderate scarcity, they are neither altruistic nor purely egoistic. They have ends which they seek to advance, but prefer to advance them through cooperation with others on mutually acceptable terms.

Rawls offers a model of a fair choice situation within which parties would hypothetically choose mutually acceptable principles of justice. Under such constraints, Rawls believes that parties would find his favoured principles of justice to be attractive, winning out over varied alternatives, including utilitarian and'right wing'-libertarian accounts. Rawls belongs to the social contract tradition, although he takes a different view from that of previous thinkers. Rawls develops what he claims are principles of justice through the use of an artificial device he calls the Original position; this "veil" is one that blinds people to all facts about themselves so they cannot tailor principles to their own advantage: "...no one knows his place in society, his class position or social status, nor does anyone know his fortune in the distribution of natural assets and abilities, his intelligence and the like. I shall assume that the parties do not know their conceptions of the good or their special psychological propensities.

The principles of justice are chosen behind a veil of ignorance."According to Rawls, ignorance of these details about oneself will lead to principles that are fair to all. If an individual does not know how he will end up in his own conceived society, he is not going to privilege any one class of people, but rather develop a scheme of justice that treats all fairly. In particular, Rawls claims that those in the Original Position would all adopt a maximin strategy which would maximize the prospects of the least well-off. "They are the principles that rational and free persons concerned to further their own interests would accept in an initial position of equality as defining the fundamentals of the terms of their association." Rawls bases his Original Position on a "thin theory of the good" which he says "explains the rationality underlying choice of principles in the Original Position". A full theory of the good follows. Rawls claims that the parties in the original position would adopt two such principles, which would govern the assignment of rights and duties and regulate the distribution of social and economic advantages across society.

The difference principle permits inequalities in the distribution of goods only if those inequalities benefit the worst-off members of society. Rawls believes that this principle would be a rational choice for the representatives in the original position for the following reason: Each member of society has an equal claim on their society's goods. Natural attributes should not affect this claim, so the basic right of any individual, before further considerations are taken into account, must be to an equal share in material wealth. What could justify unequal distribution? Rawls argues that inequality is acceptable only if it is to the advantage of those who are worst-off; the agreement that stems from the original position is both ahistorical. It is hypothetical in the sense that the principles to be derived are what the parties would, under certain legitimating conditions, agree to, not what they have agreed to. Rawls seeks to use an argument that the principles of justice are what would be agreed upon if people were in the hypothetical situation of the original position and that those principles have moral weight as a result of that.

Lakeville South High School

Lakeville South High School is a high school located Lakeville, United States. To meet the needs of a growing population, in the early 2000s the district began construction of LSHS. LSHS enrolled students for the first time in fall 2005. Unlike LNHS, whose student come from a predominantly urban/suburban catchment area, LSHS pulls from the suburban/rural areas of Lakeville; this socioeconomic divide has contributed to the ferocity of the rivalry between LNHS and LSHS athletics. The school is a member of Minnesota Independent School District 194, is affiliated with the Minnesota State High School League; the school is a member of the South Suburban Conference. The school competes under the Minnesota State High School League and is a member of the competitive South Suburban Conference; the school was in the Lake Conference until 2009-2010.

63rd Indian Infantry Brigade

The 63rd Indian Infantry Brigade was an infantry brigade formation of the Indian Army during World War II. It was formed in January 1942, at Jhansi in India and was assigned to the 23rd Indian Infantry Division and served in the Burma Campaign. In March 1942, it was reassigned to the 17th Indian Infantry Division with whom it remained for the rest of the war apart from in May 1942, when it was attached to the 39th Indian Infantry Division. 1st Battalion, 11th Sikh Regiment January to August 1942 1st Battalion, 10th Gurkha Rifles January to August 1945 2nd Battalion, 13th Frontier Force Rifles February to July 1942 5th Battalion, 17th Dogra Regiment March to June 1942 1st Battalion, Gloucestershire Regiment June 1942 to June 1943 1st Battalion, 3rd Gurkha Rifles June 1942 to August 1944 7th Battalion, 10th Baluch Regiment January to August 1943 and August 1944 to August 1945 1st Battalion, 4th Gurkha Rifles September 1943 to April 1944 and July to August 1944 1st Battalion, 16th Punjab Regiment October to December 1943 4th Battalion, 12th Frontier Force Regiment March 1944 9th Battalion, Border Regiment August 1944 to August 1945 List of Indian Army Brigades in World War II

ROH/NJPW War of the Worlds (2015)

War of the Worlds'15 was a two-day professional wrestling supershow co-produced by the American Ring of Honor and Japanese New Japan Pro-Wrestling promotions. The events took place on May 12 and 13, 2015, at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U. S. Both nights were released by ROH on video on demand the following week. War of the Worlds'15 was the second annual War of the Worlds event co-produced by ROH and NJPW, following War of the Worlds, which took place on May 17, 2014, at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. On January 4, 2015, at their Wrestle Kingdom 9 in Tokyo Dome show, New Japan Pro-Wrestling announced that it would for the second year in a row co-produce an event with Ring of Honor in May. At that point, no specific dates were announced and only the United States was named as a location. However, on February 25, ROH sent out a press release, announcing three co-produced events, as opposed to two shows in 2014, with War of the Worlds'15 taking place on May 13 in Philadelphia and Global Wars'15 on May 15 and 16 in Toronto, Canada.

On March 7, War of the Worlds'15 was expanded to a two-day event, taking place at the 2300 Arena over May 12 and 13. This was done due to the May 13 event selling out. Both nights ended up being sold out in advance. ROH began announcing the NJPW wrestlers taking part in the events on April 1, starting with Hiroshi Tanahashi. Over the next nine days, ROH announced the remaining NJPW participants. On April 16, ROH announced that the Bullet Club trio of A. J. Styles, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson would be taking part in the War of the Worlds'15 events; the following day, ROH put additional standing room tickets on sale for the two events. On April 20, ROH announced all eight matches for the first night of War of the Worlds'15. All eight matches. Announced were pre-show autograph sessions for May 12 and 13, which would be attended by both NJPW and ROH wrestlers taking part in the tour. War of the Worlds'15 featured eight professional wrestling matches each night that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines.

Wrestlers portrayed villains, heroes, or less distinguishable characters in the scripted events that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches. Due to featuring wrestlers from two different promotions, the events focused less on storyline rivalries and more on interpromotional matchups. However, one storyline introduced between the Bullet Club and The Kingdom stables was built across the two promotions; the rivalry between the two stables started on March 1, 2015, at ROH's 13th Anniversary Show, where The Kingdom's Matt Taven and Michael Bennett defeated Bullet Club's Karl Anderson to win a three-way tag team match, after Anderson's stablemate Doc Gallows was unable to make the event due to travel issues. This led to a match on April 5 at NJPW's Invasion Attack 2015, where Taven and Bennett defeated Anderson and Gallows to capture the IWGP Tag Team Championship; the rivalry continued throughout the next month and came to include Maria Kanellis and Amber Gallows, the wives of Bennett and Gallows, respectively.

Anderson and Gallows were absent from War of the Worlds'15, working only the Global Wars'15 events, leaving A. J. Styles and The Young Bucks to enter the rivalry. War of the Worlds'15 marked the in-ring return of the third member of The Kingdom, Adam Cole, following an injury break. Cole was only announced for the second night, but ended up being revealed as Styles' mystery opponent on the first night; the first night featured a three-way non-title match between three sets of tag team champions as Bennett and Taven took on The Young Bucks, the reigning IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions, ROH World Tag Team Champions The Addiction. The second night featured the only title match of the two events, which saw Jay Briscoe defend the ROH World Championship against Bobby Fish. Prior to the title match, Briscoe had gone over two years without being pinned or submitted in ROH. Pro Wrestling Dot Net's Zack Zimmerman called Roderick Strong "the most spectacular wrestler" of the two events, writing that his matches with Kushida and Hiroshi Tanahashi were each night's best match "by a fair margin".

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter called Strong the ROH MVP of the entire week, writing that both Tanahashi and Shinsuke Nakamura were giving him rave reviews. Pro Wrestling Torch's Sean Radican called the first night a "tremendous show from start to finish", giving it nine points out of ten, he gave the highest rating of four and a half stars out of five to the match between A. J. Styles and Adam Cole, calling it "amazing" and a match of the year contender.
