26 November 2019: Chapter Table of Content changes

We are updating our 75 chapter tables of contents to add new entities, remove obsolete or unimportant topics, rename entities and merge as appropriate. This is a continuous activity, but we are mostly done for 2019. We want to focus on entities of use to practicing pathologists. We have also merged the Trachea chapter into the newly named Larynx, hypopharynx & trachea chapter.

12 November 2019: Book review of Life Finds a Way, Andreas Wagner, which examines human creativity in the light of evolution:

"Failure is key to success, Wagner insists, and it should be embraced as a necessary part of the creative process. “If we are honest with ourselves, we understand that we are failing more often than we are succeeding, and that is a very Darwinian concept,” he says. “Even very successful scientists have a lot of failures.” In its lessons on how we think about innovation and creativity, Life Finds a Way has insights for us all, whether we are scientists, artists, or dark-winged moths."
