  1. I am here to say a big thanks to my doctor Dr Ajayi who helped me cure my herpes. i have never had a happy relationship in my life because of my inability to perform well due to my herpes, due to frustration,i went online to search for solution to ending my predicament and than i came across testimony on how Dr Ajayi has helped them, so i contacted him and explain to him then he promised to help me cure my herpes with his herbal medicine, i doubted at first but i gave him a try then he sent me the product which i used according to his prescription and in 14 days, i saw changes in my body system then i went back to the hospital few weeks later and did a test the test result shows negative and now my herpes was gone after taking Dr Ajayi herbal medicine. and so i want you all suffering from herpes or any other diseases should kindly contact Dr Ajayi now and get your healing. Email him at  ajayiherbalhome@gmail.com  you can as well write him direct on whataspp at +2348154724883…

  2. Absolutely fantastic explanation, cheers!
    Only small suggestion would be to mention, that depolarisation & repolarisation of the myocard occur in opposite directions ultimately leading to a positive curve response in both cases on the ECG, which is why the P- & T-waves are usually both depicted as positive.
    Failure to mention this might have people confused when trying to interpret an actual ECG.
    Nevertheless an excellent video for the basics!

  3. terrorism: noun, the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
    so you call those people who stormed the capital pacifist? I don't think so. they had military equipment like a freaking war was coming, they were yelling ''hang mike pence", they had those hand tights ready to sequestrate people and they vandalize. So how is that not terrorism? Of course not all people wanted to be part of that destruction and remained outside, something the media does not cover, only showing the main action inside the capitol. some trump supporters have some common fucking sense because they knew they will be in trouble and foreseen what was coming if they went inside.

  4. This is the clearest I have ever had ECGs explained to me, through nursing school, and then grad school! I needed to know that electrodes and leads are two different things, though they are related. Now I know what each lead means, and which part of the heart it is recording! Thank you!
