RCSI International Night

Went to international night last night and it was great. Loads of performances from different countries. My favourites are Trinidad & Tobago, Ireland and of course Malaysia. The performance from Malaysia is very exotic, I must say.

"The Sea" by John Banville

Got a novel entitled "The Sea" by John Banville on Thursday after winning a quiz during my orthopaedic rotation in Cappagh Hospital. John Banville who wrote the novel won the Man Booker Prize last year and he is regarded as one of Ireland's finest writers of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, and a supreme stylist. He is known for his precise—some would say cold—prose style, Nabokovian in inventiveness, and for the dark humour of his generally arch narrators.

Talk by A Nobel Prize Winner

On Thursday last week, I went to a talk in Beaumont Hospital after my OSLER exam and the talk was delivered by Dr. Peter Agne, a professor of Medicine at the John Hopkins University. He won a Nobel Laureate prize in 2003 for his research on Aquaporin, a water channel. He talked about a method in which water is transported in and out of cells in the body that has lead to a much greater understanding of the molecular and genetic basis of chronic conditions such as diabetes insipidus, kidney failure, hypertension and oedema. He was here in Ireland during RCSI research day.
On another news, RCSI graduate has recently awarded Mayo Clinic "Outstanding Achievement Award" at the prestigious Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education in Minnesota. Dr Nandan Anavekar, who graduated from RCSI in 2003, was praised for his outstanding fund of knowledge and ability to develop collaborative research efforts amongst his colleagues.

"Waist Down" at Prada

Originally run in Tokyo last year, an exhibition called "Waist Down" is coming to New York. It showcases the more than 200 variations on the theme of skirts from designer Miuccia Prada. Prada has a self-professed love of the looks and versatility of the skirt, perhaps more than most designers, and felt that is would be the natural subject for an exhibition when she discovered that people would be interested in seeing more of the design process and evolution of design. Unlike most fashion exhibitions, "Waist Down" does not feature any real models, but displays the skirts in unusual ways, from "spread open and sealed in plastic" to being attached to long, twirling mechanical hangers that allow the skirts to move freely.

"Thunder Perfect Mind" is Prada's first-ever television commercial. All costumes featured in the spot were specially designed by Miuccia Prada and were styled with Kym Barrett, who has also worked on films like "Matrix" and "Romeo and Juliet".

F1 Car for the Road

Image hosting by Photobucket

The Freestream T1 is ultra lightweight 2-seater with wind-tunnel aerodynamics, a composite construction, a 480bhp 2.4-litre V8 and one of the lightest weights of any road car in existence - just 465kg. Built by a team of engineers who were part of the elite team that designed and developed the iconic McLaren F1, the T1's 1,000bhp/tonne power-to-weight ratio will offer 3g cornering, and braking and acceleration performance approaching that of a Formula One car. Though it could well be the ultimate track day car, the T1 will be road registerable and is expected to cost in the vicinity of £150,000 when it goes on sale later this year.

T for Terrible

Ray and I watched V for Vendetta yesterday and it was rubbish, haha! Some people might like it though but I found the movie very boring and Ray fell asleep halfway along the movie.
Also watched a DVD at home after V for Vendetta, only to find out that the movie was boring.
