Weill Medical College of Cornell University, is the biomedical research unit and medical school of Cornell University, a private Ivy League university; the medical college is located at 1300 York Avenue, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City, along with the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences. The college is named for former Citigroup chairman Sanford Weill; as one of the most selective medical schools in the United States, Cornell enrolls 100 students per class from a pool of over 6,000 applicants, interviewing 700-750 applicants. For the class of 2022, the average undergraduate GPA and MCAT scores for successful applicants were 3.85 and 518, respectively. The Weill Cornell Medical College is tied for 9th place on U. S. News & World Report's "Best Medical Schools: Research" ranking. Weill Cornell Medicine is affiliated with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Hospital for Special Surgery, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Rockefeller University, all of which are located nearby on York Avenue.

Weill Cornell's clinical affiliates rank with the New York-Presbyterian Hospital ranked #1 in the region and #5 in the nation, the Hospital for Special Surgery ranked #1 in the nation for orthopedics, the Memorial Sloan Kettering Center #2 for cancer. The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Rockefeller University joined Weill Cornell to establish the Tri-Institutional MD–PhD Program in 1991. In 2001, the school opened a campus in Qatar. Weill Cornell has been affiliated with The Methodist Hospital in Houston, since 2004. On September 16, 2019, Weill Cornell Medicine announced students who qualify for financial aid would attend cost-free; the school was founded on April 1898, with an endowment by Col. Oliver H. Payne, it was established in New York because Ithaca, where the main campus is located, was deemed too small to offer adequate clinical training opportunities. James Ewing was the first professor of clinical pathology at the school, for a while was the only full-time professor. A branch of the school operated in Stimson Hall on the main campus.

The two-year Ithaca course, paralleled the first two years of the New York school. It closed in 1938 due to declining enrollment. Weill Cornell became affiliated with New York Hospital, now NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital, in 1913; the institutions opened a joint campus in Yorkville in 1932. In 1927, William Payne Whitney's $27 million donation led to the building of the Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic, which became the name for Cornell's large psychiatric effort, its Training School for Nurses became affiliated with the university in 1942, operating as the Cornell Nursing School until it closed in 1979. In 1998, New York Hospital merged with Presbyterian Hospital, the affiliate hospital of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons; the combined institution operates today as NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital. Despite the clinical alliance, the faculty and instructional functions of the Cornell and Columbia units remain distinct and independent; each hospital in the NewYork–Presbyterian Healthcare System is affiliated with one of the two colleges.

Called Cornell University Medical College, the school was renamed the Weill Medical College of Cornell University after receiving a substantial endowment from then-Citigroup Chairman Sanford I. Weill in 1998. In 2015, the school renamed Weill Cornell Medicine, to better reflect its mission. On September 16, 2019, Dr. Augustine M. K. Choi announced Weill Cornell Medicine would make the cost of attendance free for all students who qualify for financial aid, made possible by a $160 million gift from The Starr Foundation, directed by Weill Cornell Medicine Overseer Maurice R. Greenberg, in partnership with gifts from Joan and Board of Overseers Chairman Emeritus Sanford I. Weill. Founded in 2010 in partnership with Physicians for Human Rights, the Weill Cornell Center for Human Rights provides services to torture victims seeking asylum in the United States on grounds of racial, religious, sexual, or political persecution. Run by medical students, the WCCHR provides forensic medical evaluations for survivors of torture.

Lovers and Lollipops

Lovers and Lollipops is a 1956 film directed and written by Morris Engel and Ruth Orkin. The film was photographed on location in and around New York City, tells the story of the romance of a widowed fashion model and an engineer, how their relationship is affected by her daughter; the film was the second of three feature films directed and written by Engel and Orkin, who were best known for the 1953 film Little Fugitive. Like that film and Weddings and Babies and Lollipops was a low-budget film shot in a naturalistic style uncommon during this era; the film was the film debut of Gerald S. O'Loughlin. Cathy Dunn, who did not appear in any other movies, played the girl. Both Little Fugitive and Lovers and Lollipops were influential independent movies in that era, influenced the French New Wave film movement and John Cassavetes. Ann, a widowed model, has a date with her old friend Larry, an engineer just returned from working in South America. Ann has a seven-year-old daughter, who has mixed feelings about her mother's relationship.

The three visit the Museum of Modern Art and Central Park, Larry buys Peggy a toy boat to win her friendship, while at the same time wooing her mother. Larry and Ann visit other places in New York with and without Peggy, it soon becomes apparent that they have fallen in love. Peggy begins to like Larry but grows petulant, tries to disrupt her mother's romance; when they all drive to the beach together, Peggy stays with Larry. Peggy hides from him in the parking lot, which provides some tense moments; that day, Ann is upset when Larry asks that they not bring Peggy along when Ann meets his father. Other incidents involving Peggy begin to alienate Ann from Larry, he continues to try to win over Peggy, bringing her to the toy department of Macy's, where she deliberately dawdles to test Larry's patience. When they get home, Peggy claims that Larry was impatient, fed her bad food and hit her when she stumbled. Ann cancels her plans to join Larry for an important dinner with his boss that night, he leaves angrily.

Ann and Larry do not begin to miss each other. Larry buys a puppy for Peggy, they reconcile; as with their earlier film and Orkin shot Lovers and Lollipops using a hand-held 35 mm. camera, with all sound dubbed subsequently. Despite the success of Little Fugitive, it took two years for Engel and Orkin to raise money for this film; the character of Peggy was notable for its realism, showing her as bratty and self-centered, in contrast to the idealized portraits of children typical of 1950s films and TV. The film gained authenticity from its use of authentic New York City locations and a realistically meandering plotline, which made the film resemble real life more than polished movie acting.

Empire (2012 TV series)

Empire is a 2012 BBC and Open University co-production and presented by Jeremy Paxman, charting the rise of the British Empire from the trading companies of India to the rule over a quarter of the world's population and its legacy in the modern world. Paxman asks how a tiny island in the North Atlantic came to rule over a quarter of the world's population, he travels to India, where local soldiers and local maharajahs helped a handful of British traders to take over vast areas of land. Spectacular displays of imperial power dazzled the local peoples and developed a cult of Queen Victoria as Empress and virtual God. In Egypt, Paxman explores Britain as a temporary peace-keeper whose visit turned into a seventy-year occupation, he travels to the desert. Paxman suggests that Britain believed it could solve the problems that haunt the Middle East to this day. Paxman continues his story of Britain's empire by looking at how traders and settlers spread the British way of life around the world by creating a British home.

In India early British traders adopted many took Indian wives. In Victorian Britain such inter-racial mixing became taboo as more British women began to settle in the colony and form families with British colonials. In Singapore he visits a club, now open to all. Paxman traces the growth of a peculiarly British type of hero - adventurer, amateur and decent chap, the British obsession with sport, he travels to East Africa, following the paths of Victorian explorers searching for the source of the Nile. Paxman looks at. Privateers such as Henry Morgan robbed Spanish ships in the Caribbean, their naval expertise supported an informal empire based on trade and developed into a global financial network. He travels to Jamaica, where the production of sugar by Africa slaves generated the wealth of plantation owners. Unfair trading was a catalyst for the independence movement led by Mahatma Gandhi, whose visit to Britain and the mill town of Darwen in 1931 is remembered by two Lancashire women, who were children at the time.

The First Opium War was caused by British trade in opium with the Chinese, in defiance of Chinese law,. Paxman relates how a desire for conquest developed into a mission to improve mankind in other places in Africa, by introducing benefits of British society and education. In Central Africa he travels in the footsteps of David Livingstone who, although a failure as a missionary, became a legend. A flood of Christian missionaries followed him and founded schools, one of which today has 8000 pupils. In South Africa, Paxman tells the story of Cecil Rhodes, a maverick with a different sort of mission, who believed in the white man's right to rule the world and took vast swathes of land for the British Empire; the territory was administered by small numbers of colonial officials, the District Officers, he argues that this created the basis of apartheid imposed in 1945 by an Afrikaaner-dominated government. In Kenya, conflict in the form of the Mau Mau Uprising between white settlers and African rebels brought bloodshed and eventual independence for Kenya.

Colonies across Africa achieved independence from Britain. And the break up of the empire in Africa. A book, Empire: What Ruling the World Did to the British, a region 2 DVD Empire accompany the series; the series was criticised by some for its handling of controversial material while trying to avoid offense to numerous stakeholders and audiences. Associate editor of The Guardian, Michael White, said that "the structure of the programme was ramshackle" and he found the narrative to be "episodic and superficial", he said that Paxman "was diffident charm itself", as opposed to treating "the former subjects of empire with his customary... abrasiveness". While White found "the photography pretty as always", he concluded that "the overall effect was curiously patronising, serving to reinforce the impression that the great man was on a jolly and going through the motions". Stuart Jeffries for The Guardian, offered similar views, concluding that "Jeremy Paxman fails to argue enough". Nick Wood, for the Daily Mail, stated that Paxman's approach was "all too predictably straight out of the cultural commissar's lecture notes", calling the series "cartoon propaganda".
