I know your response was tongue-in-cheek, but even below the knee amputations do not stay in the hospital for a month. The end of the residual limb is not ready to be fitted for a permanent prosthetic for at least 6-12 weeks due to postoperative swelling, so at most, you make sure the wound won't split, are molded a hard cover for mobilizing fluid ( and partly protection), and patient education.
As someone stated above, there are very few things that keep people hospitalized that long, and the type of injury (lateral contact to an athlete's knee) leads to guessing both vascular and/or neurologic involvement. I heard a rumor of compartment syndrome, and recovering from both a fasciotomy with a skin graft on top would fit a one-month timeline.

PS Will put money down that the median orthopaedic surgeon will not be making $500K in 12 years. It is not 'guaranteed', as I'm sure DPJs dad will be explaining to him.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||I really don't know why ANY||
I really don't know why ANY highly rated football recruit would have the goal of medical school as being a primary determining factor into what school to play football at.
There are a lot of variables (injury, development, offensive scheme, etc. etc. etc.), but a third round NFL pick last year had a $3.1 million, four year contract with almost $700K in guaranteed money.
The median income for an orthopaedic surgeon is $500K, but that is AFTER your first three years of practice. (So 4 years of medical school, 5 years of residency, most likely at least one year of fellowship). So if you get into med school straight out of undergrad and don't burn out, and the medical system stays the same, you will be in your mid 30s by the time you make $500K.
And there are significant cost-pressures being applied to that specialty (too long to get into, but decreased reimbursement of most commonly used CPTs, bundling of CPTs, reimbursement on implanted devices, more stringent rules on anicllaries, etc etc etc etc etc).
If DPJ were my cousin, I would tell him to go where he feels comfortable, and where he has the best chance of getting to the NFL. He can always return to school.

First defending champion in the Premier league era to lose on opening day. To a team that had 0 viable substitutes, a caretaker manager, one big fat question mark in regarding team ownership.
Hull is the odds on favorite to drop this year, and they go into Leicester and knock out the reigning champs. Awesome.
Hull supporters should start a Kickstarter campaign to get some quality substitutes. Lol.

Invest in a battery tender! My battery crapped out once already. Had it towed to the dealer to ensure there weren't any eletrical issues. The service guys kept telling me it had to be driven regularly, even though I told them I drove it 50 miles roundtrip a few days prior.
Jumping is a PITA; you need to have the car hooked up to the terminals under the hood as well as directly to the battery in the trunk.

Yeah near the end of last year, it was pretty common to be able to bargain >$20K off MSRP for a nicely loaded SQ4, in addition to pretty significant dealer support for leases, due to oversupply.
Maserati subsequently cut production for 2016, and it was a shorter model year, with the 2017 undergoing a mid-life refresh. While $10K off MSRP can be had, you won't approach $20K off anymore.

And that doesn't even take into consideration the swing changes Tiger had to make to offload the torque from his shredded knee.

You need to do some deep introspection to figure out why the hell you want to go into this field.
After that, the personal statement becomes like a best man speech. Short. Funny anecdote. Round it off with heart-warming/tear-jerking introspection, and you are golden.
Interview: It's allllll on you man/woman. I interviewed/sat on comittees for med school and residency; just like the interwebz, you are looking for someone who is articulate, appears sincere, and knows what the hell they are talking about. Once you get your "foot in the door" with your baseline stuff (grades, test scores, etc), it really is about you.
Good luck! So glad I'm not in your shoes!

This is a huge deal. Geopolitically (does the US finally say fuck NATO? There is no UK to promote our point of view in Brussels?), financially (which EU country has the next referendum?), legally (how long does this crap last? When will Article 50 be invoked?).

Well the US is different in that we have all sorts of checks and balances (in theory) to prevent tyranny of the majority (or large states).
Thus while the House is proportional representation, the Senate provides equal voices for smaller states. And the Electoral college, while mostly proportional, provides smaller state "more punch" than their population would suggest. Thus, while you can't completely ignore Cali, NY, or Texas in national elections...you mostly can.

So you are saying that the the voice of the majority of voters in the entirety of the UK should be ignored?

I think the rationale that "this was too important a concept to be put to a public vote" is part of the reason why the UK voted to leave. I'm a pretty socially liberal person, but the easiest way to piss me off is for someone to tell me "You don't understand the nuance of this discussion, and thus can't be trusted to make an informed decision".

Regardless of the merits (not very many IMHO) and drawbacks (a whole crapload), what cannot be questioned is the lack of democratic accountability in how the EU functions. The EU parliament doesn't create the EU laws; they are created by either the EU judicial system, or by regulation. Prior votes against (France rejecting the EU constituion, Ireland rejecting the Treaty of Lisbon) were overridden via treaties.
If the EU doesn't wake up and drastically change how it operates, the next dominos will be the Dutch and then the French.
