An excellent article. Well written. No matter what your view of the U.S. embargo or the Castro regime, I think yo will find this article worth reading and most accurate.

A pelvic fracture often is associated with: Blood at the urethral meatus; Ecchymoses on the abdomen (Cullen's sign) or flanks (Grey-Turner's sign) are findings from retroperitoneal hemorrhage and may be present. Rotation of the iliac crests indicates a serious pelvic fracture. Leg-length discrepancy may suggest a hip injury or cephalad migration of an unstable hemipelvis.

Lifting the embargo now,willonly help the Castro's corrpted dictatoship to get stronger!
If we lift the embargo abd establish US relationships with the dictatorship,it will place the USA to the same position they were in 1958,wgen they were supporting and having relationships with another corrupted dictatorship(Batista)! The US must keep tighting Castro's neck until he open the ciuntry for a democratic transition,otherwise the US will be going back to the 1950's when they used to have excellent. relationships with Latin America's dictators!

The lower portion of the face will be paralyzed with an upper motor neuron lesion or a supranuclear cortico-spinal lesion on the ipsilateral side.

The lower motor neuron, when damaged, yields a paralysis of both the upper and lower portion of the face. The affected nerve is the facial nerve (Cranial Nerve VII), and the classic example is Bell’s palsy, a postviral phenomenon affecting the facial nerve.

Bell’s palsy is a neuritis affecting the lower motor neuron, thus the patient will exhibit paralysis of the upper and lower portions of the face.

In the case your talking about me,let me remember you that I'm not a rightwingnuts,neither I'm a leftwingnuts!I'm just a CubanAmerican who is afraid to see the USA traveling back in time to the 1950's when the USA was notoriously famous for their excellents relationships with LatinAmerica dictators!Recognizing and establishing good relationship with a 54 years old dictatorhip will be just going back to the 1950's times!God set the eyes in the front of the humans to look foward not to look backwards!

Occipital headaches in children are notoriously associated with posterior fossa tumors. Nighttime awakening with headache, particularly when followed by emesis, is also concerning for a space-occupying lesion, as the ICP will increase when prone. Vomiting and headache without other symptoms should always alert the clinician to ask questions about CNS sources of the illness. While certainly not every child with this complaint will have a CNS lesion, standard of care should include obtaining a head CT and/or MRI, and considering a lumbar puncture with opening pressure as part of the work-up.

Yet we have relations with the Peoples' Republic of China but disown the democratic Republic of China. I'd rather have relations with a neighbor than with a split country across the ocean.

Well said. I hope you go soon.

Cuba is a lovely place and interesting to visit and those of us who went are more enriched for it regardless of the lies and scare tactics the Miami right wing use.

"WE JUST DONT CARE" actually visited China not long ago and posted some lovely videos yet he tried to sway others from visiting his island of Cuba and doing business with them.

He is tunnel visioned right wing .

I enjoyed your videos very much and my husband is a fellow fish hobbyiest just like you but with all due respect you are rather right wing in you're thinking and due to that you sometimes miss the big picture.

"excellent. relationships with Latin America's dictators"

Sir,
It seems that you are describing many of the Miami Cuban right wing extremist politicians and the GOP.
The corruption and zero political standards here in Miami-dade made my trip to Cuba rather refreshing.

Sorry 'madam',but it seems you missunderstood my post!I have nothing against travelling to Cuba by USA citizens!Thanks to our President Obama new law Americans can travel to Cuba using different options,like education trips,just like my trip to China in which I went to study the China Wall construction details and the Terracota Warriors !I have many videos showing those magnificent warriors!What I'm against is to see the USA going back in time to the 1950's by backing and establishing relationships with Castro's 53 years old dictatorship!If the USA establish relationship with that corrupt dictatorship we will be taking Cuba back to 1958 with the same panorama of dictatorship,prostitution and corruption! No,I will hate to see the USA travelling back to its notorious presence of the 1950's!
I heard your husband like Tropican fish,I love them as well as a friend of mine 'Jose' do!Please tell your 'husband' to post me,at his convenience, to share opinions and knowledges on our mutual hobby!Have a good day MF (My friend) and say high to George(Compassinate One he is also MF(my friend)!
