Mayo's Kitchens Get Honorable Mention in Today's The News

That the world is getting a crazy place to live in with every passing day, is no big secret. As the French street artist JR, winner of TED prize 2011 very appropriately puts it, "You have dictators ruling the world, population is growing by the million, there's no more fish in the sea, the North Pole is melting and...we're all becoming fat. Except maybe French people!" And things are no different at home. There are so many things wrong with the way the country's been run, so many things amiss in how our nation and our society is evolving as a times it just feels like this big bowl of spaghetti. You lift out just a little with your fork and end up having a huge pile of tangled 'serpentines' looping around in your plate.You pick out some and the whole lot comes slithering in. But that's the way things are. Somehow, some way you've got to toughen it out and make your way around all the burgeoning towers of madness, hypocrisy and gloom.
But somewhere in all this cheerless horror-show, some stubborn little ray of light does coax its way into centre-field. And in dark times like the ones we are living through now, this little ray of sunshine can appear so luminescent and dazzling and... irresistibly 'adorable' that for once your cynical self is inclined to throw all caution to the wind and cuthect every bit of yourself and your soul in that one lonely island of hope amidst a black sea of death and destruction.
I'm thinking about this article by Ayaz Amir that appeared in the Opinion section of today's The News. Read it and see if it doesn't make you all warm and happy inside. Simple acts of kindness, little caramel-coated jewels of generous giving and selfless serving are perhaps the most beautiful things on God's green earth. And there's absolutely nothing you can do with them except let yourself be inspired by their pure beauty and try to pass it on. As much as you can. Wherever you can.

1st Year IMPORTANT TOPICS (Anatomy)

By Farkhanda QaiserOkay finally here it is. The all-important guide for the 1st year students. I’ve compiled all the prof and sendup questions of last year as well as the remnants of class tests that I had.But before you go on to read them, keep in mind the following very tested tidbits:For profs, NEVER leave any topic untouched and unread. Go through all topics so that in viva, you have atleast some idea about what the examiner is asking.NEVER lose your sendup question paper because there are high chances that some of the questions will be repeated in profs as you can see in the following example of anatomy question paper and same goes for the MCQs. Most of them are repeated. So here’s what we had done, in our facebook class group, we had made a discussion topic, and everyone told the MCQs of sendups and discussed them. Well, you may think us nerds or whatever but trust me that discussion proved very fruitful for all those who participated in it.I think enough has bin said about orga…

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)
Salam everyone, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. I am going to write a detailed composition regarding preparation for USMLE Step 1. I am a final year student at King Edward Medical University and I took my exam on June 10th. Final year is the year before internship/ house job in Pakistan. I just got my scores: 99/266

Let me introduce some myths surrounding USMLE Step 1 which are especially prevalent within Pakistan; I am not too sure about India because I heard their students typically appear in their final years.

 Myth number 1:Do not appear for USMLE Step 1 within your graduation

 Verdict: Baseless, illogical reasoning

Explanation: This is so prevalent in Pakistan it’s almost pathetic. One of the biggest concerns surrounding our students is that Step 1 is a huge risk to be taken before graduation. Let me put it in another way: Step1 would always remain a risk whenever it is taken, …
