POST 01151E : TECHNET21 BUSINESS 1st September 2007 ___________________________________ A new page has been added to the TechNet21 website. It is a list of postings by type (discussion, technical information, news) and chronological order. Discussion postings have been put together by discussion string. Each posting is linked to the archived text by the hyperlinked number. We have thought that this could prove useful to you, despite there is some overlap with archives. This list will be updated at every posting. When the last posting of a discussion string will be older than four months, the entire string will be deleted from the page. Secretariat and myself would appreciate receiving your comments and suggestions on this page. Please write to me. Besides, the quiz has been changed ; it was long overdue. Was this last one much easier? We got a record number of right answers, ten or twelve. We can’t name anybody, for fear of forgetting some. The right answer was indeed Abu Ali al-Hussein ibn-Abdullah Ibn-Sina, well known to westeners as Avicenna. He was probably born in 980, near Bukhara in Greater Persia, present-day Uzbekistan. He was the first to clearly establish the diagnosis of the sclerosis of the neck and meningitis. He died suddenly from a stomach disorder in 1037, in the city of Hamadan (ancient Ecbatana, capital of the Medes) in present day Iran. His mausoleum can still be visited in Hamadan. The picture reproduced on the site is supposed to be in the Hall of the Sorbonne University in Paris. This information however could not be verified See the new quiz! Can you identify this person? If you have a quiz you would like to ptopose to members, do not hesitate to submit it. ______________________________________________________________________________ All members of the TechNet21 e-Forum are invited to send comments on any posting or to use the forum to raise a new discussion or request technical information in relation to immunization services.
