It was April, and I was in Augusta, Georgia, preparing for the Masters. Back home in Virginia, my wife Audrey, felt like she was coming down with a bad cold. But her temperature didn''t relent after two days, her blood pressure had dropped and her heart was beating 140 times a minute. Normal is between 60 and 100.We rushed her to the hospital as she was unable to breathe on her own. Doctors feared, and ultimately confirmed, that she had sepsis, which is essentially blood poisoning. It happens when an infection you already have somewhere else starts a chain reaction throughout the body.

Injectable luteinizing hormone releasing hormone agonists (e.g., leuprolide) are the standard agents for achieving androgen deprivation for prostate cancer despite the initial testosterone surge and delay in therapeutic effect. Relugolix is a novel, oral GnRH receptor antagonist that achieves both LH and FSH suppression to its direct inhibitory effect on the pituitary GnRH receptors. This direct inhibition does not result in a testosterone surge. There no information on the efficacy and safety of relugolix as compared to leuprolide.For the purpose, Neal D. Shore, medical director for the Carolina Urologic Research Center, and colleagues randomly assigned patients with advanced prostate cancer, in a 2:1 ratio, to receive relugolix (120 mg orally once daily) or leuprolide (injections every 3 months) for 48 weeks. A total of 622 patients received relugolix and 308 received leuprolide.

As per Einstein, doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity . Unfortunately, Pakistan has been run by the same system where regimes do change hands but the underlying theme remains the same. The main stakeholders have failed to realise the flaw in our system which is broken or at best weak institutions. This created a major void between the haves and the have nots where a few live in an oasis that s a far cry for most of the 220 million proletariats.The weak economy, a broken political system, disenfranchised masses, unmotivated bureaucracy and an archaic judicial system can be directly or indirectly attributed to weak institutions of the country. Why has a country that sits on mega reserves of invaluable resources, oil, gas, precious metals, an untapped tourism industry, an envied human resource capital and a strategically strong geographic location in the region failed to evolve? The simple answer is a system that doesn t support inclusive institutions.

About 1,400 years ago, Bilal was a black, enslaved man. Despite having no status in a deeply tribal, classist and racist Arab society, he was handpicked by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to give the first public call to prayer in the first mosque established in the history of a new religion which gave a voice to the oppressed. On my birth, my parents named me Bilal to honour that legacy.Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) wanted to set an example demonstrating that all human beings are equal in the eyes of God, regardless of their race, class or socio economic status. As a brown man in America today, my name bears witness to this revolutionary idea.
This relationship isn t only symbiotic but of strange infatuation. Something of a holiday fling when you get smitten and fool around a bit. Such things seem appropriate when free of restraints but in matters of state policies with long term aims are woven into specific objectives keeping state actors on the straight and narrow. Yet despite such straitjacketing of form the freedom of spirit in romance lingers long. Pakistan and the US have lived this life for the last seventy years. There is something cultural too which becomes the source of first notice but we will come to that later.The period post WWII was one of most profound redrawing of the world map. Pakistan among many was a state to emerge on the world scene. Each fledgling nation needed a big brotherly boost in a highly militarised world and an economic Marshal plan to survive. The US now the unchallenged leader of the western world they would term it free, if you get the connotation charmed many of these damsels in waiting. The cost was to keep in the American corner, keep away from the communists, and provide services as needed from time to time. For an immediate change of fortunes in one s socio economic promise it was a small price to pay. Also, newborns were elevated instantly to hobnob with the mighty of the world. We offered the US basing rights for its transcontinental reconnaissance flights over the Soviet Union which Khrushchev soon had stopped by putting a big red circle around Peshawar. But Pakistan made good with some cogent returns in military hardware and free wheat and corn keeping India from dissembling what it felt had been wrongly carved out of it. We were truly and functionally in America s corner.
