2016 United States Senate election in Indiana

The 2016 United States Senate election in Indiana was held on November 8, 2016, to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the State of Indiana, concurrently with the 2016 U. S. presidential election, as well as other elections to the United States Senate in other states and elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections. Incumbent Republican Senator Dan Coats, who has served in the Senate since 2011, served from 1989 to 1999, had stated that he planned to run for re-election, but in March 2014 his chief of staff said that Coats "has decided not to decide whether to run again until after the midterm elections". On March 24, 2015, Coats announced that he would not run for re-election, citing that he would be of advanced age by the end of the 2017–2023 term, should he complete it; the primaries were held May 3, were won by former U. S. Representative Baron Hill and incumbent U. S. Representative Todd Young. However, on July 11, 2016, Hill withdrew, former U.

S. Senator Evan Bayh entered the race to regain the seat he held from 1999 to 2011, that his father, Birch Bayh, held from 1963 to 1981; the Indiana Democratic Party chose Bayh as Hill's replacement on July 22. Bayh was seen as the frontrunner, but faced heavy criticism over lobbying work that he had done after leaving office. Young won by a comfortable margin, defeating Bayh in the general election by 10 points. Marlin Stutzman, U. S. Representative and candidate for the U. S. Senate in 2010 Todd Young, U. S.

Hill soon after released a statement formally dropping out of the race saying he did not "...want to stand in the way of Democrats winning Indiana and the U. S. Senate; that would not be fair to my state. And, the stakes are far too high in this election not to put my country above my own political ambitions," without explicitly endorsing Bayh; the first candidate to declare was Bob Kern, a frequent candidate for Congress in various districts around the state. Bayh declared for the race July 13; the Indiana Democratic Party's State Central Committee chose Bayh as Hill's replacement, for the general election. Evan Bayh, former U. S.

Juan José Saer

Juan José Saer was an Argentine writer, considered one of the most important in Latin American literature and literature in Spanish language of the century XX. He is considered the most important writer of Argentina after Jorge Luis Borges according to Martin Kohan and the best Argentine writer of the second half of the 20th century according to Beatriz Sarlo. Four of his novels - La Pesquisa, El Entenado, La Grande and Glosa - appear on various lists made by Latin American and Spanish writers and critics of the best 100 books in the Spanish language of the last 25 years For his novel La Ocasión he won the Nadal Prize in 1987. In 1990, he won the Silver Condor Award for Best Original Screenplay for the film Las Veredas de Saturno. Born to Syrian-Lebanese immigrants in Serodino, a small town in the Santa Fe Province, Saer studied law and philosophy at the National University of the Litoral, where he taught History of Cinematography. Thanks to a scholarship, he moved to Paris in 1968, he had retired from his position as a lecturer at the University of Rennes, had finished his final novel, La Grande, which has since been published posthumously, along with a series of critical articles on Latin American and European writers, Trabajos.

In the year 2012, a first installment of his unpublished working notebooks were edited and published as "Papeles de trabajo" by Seix Barral in Argentina. A second volume soon followed, the result of five years of editing work by a team coordinated by Julio Premat, who wrote the introduction of the first volume; these notebooks allow readers a privileged insight into the creative processes of Saer. As critics point out, the books of Juan José Saer may be taken as a single "oeuvre", set in his "La Zona", a fluvial region around the Argentinian city of Santa Fé, populated by characters who are developed and become referential from novel to novel. Saer's novels thematize the situation of the self-exiled writer through the figures of two twin brothers, one of whom remained in Argentina during the dictatorship, while the other, like Saer himself, moved to Paris. Like several of his contemporaries, Saer's work builds on particular and codified genres, such as detective fiction, colonial encounters, travelogues, or canonical modern writers.

He developed lung cancer, died in Paris in 2005, at age 67. His body is buried in the Parisian cemetery of Père-Lachaise.

Ear canal

The ear canal is a pathway running from the outer ear to the middle ear. The adult human ear canal extends from the pinna to the eardrum and is about 2.5 centimetres in length and 0.7 centimetres in diameter. The human ear canal is divided into two parts; the elastic cartilage part forms the outer third of the canal. The cartilage is the continuation of the cartilage framework of pinna; the cartilaginous portion of the ear canal contains small hairs and specialized sweat glands, called apocrine glands, which produce cerumen. The bony part forms the inner two thirds; the bony part is only a ring in the newborn. The layer of epithelium encompassing the bony portion of the ear canal is much thinner and therefore, more sensitive in comparison to the cartilaginous portion. Size and shape of the canal vary among individuals; the canal is 2.5 centimetres long and 0.7 centimetres in diameter. It runs from behind and above downward and forward. On the cross-section, it is of oval shape; these are important factors to consider.

Due to its relative exposure to the outside world, the ear canal is susceptible to diseases and other disorders. Some disorders include: Atresia of the ear canal Cerumen impaction Bone exposure, caused by the wearing away of skin in the canal Auditory canal osteoma Cholesteatoma Contact dermatitis of the ear canal Fungal infection Ear mites in animals Ear myiasis, an rare infestation of maggots Foreign body in ear Granuloma, a scar caused by tympanostomy tubes Otitis externa, bacteria-caused inflammation of the ear canal Stenosis, a gradual closing of the canal Earwax known as cerumen, is a yellowish, waxy substance secreted in the ear canals, it plays an important role in the human ear canal, assisting in cleaning and lubrication, provides some protection from bacteria and insects. Excess or impacted cerumen can press against the eardrum and/or occlude the external auditory canal and impair hearing, causing conductive hearing loss. If left untreated, cerumen impaction can increase the risk of developing an infection within the ear canal.
