Fear Of Disapproval

Realize that no matter what you do, you won't obtain unanimous approval. Therefore never let the fear of disapproval of others prevent you from doing the right thing.

Lack of approval will only distress you if you allow it to. Ultimately, any emotional power anyone has over you is the power you decide to give that person.

Remember while it is a great goal to please everyone, you can't. So it is a great idea to at least please yourself and your loved ones.

People give advice based on their own situations. That is how human beings work. So you have to take every comment with a dual outlook. Each comment is G-d talking to you through the human, but it is filtered by the human being giving it.

I am going through this now after finding love in my life for the first time in three years. There is no power more powerful than love, yet people forget how important it is.  Only someone who has had real love remembers how powerful it is. When they do remember they have more joy, becasue love makes you fell alive!!


Love Yehuda Lave

Israeli Doctors Implant 3D-Printed Nose

Specialists in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Baruch Padeh Medical Center, Poriya, near Tiberias, Israel, on Thursday implanted a 3D-printed bone to replace parts of the nose, forehead and eyehole in a patient who suffered a training injury.

Benayahu Merhavi, 19, from Giv'at Avni, west of the Kinneret, suffered a blow to his face during a martial arts training session a year and a half ago, fracturing his nose bone, forehead bone and part of an eyehole. A preliminary surgery attempted to repair some of the damage, but the patient continued to complain about continued dysfunction and an aesthetic damage.


Dr. Imad Abu El-Naaj, head of the oral and cranio-maxillofacial surgery department at Poriya Medical Center, explained that "Benayahu was scheduled for a complicated surgery involving the removal of a skull bone and its implanting in place of the crushed bone. The surgery is long, because it requires designing, shaving and fitting the bone in real time."

Instead, according to Dr. Abu El-Naaj, his team decided – for the first time in an Israeli hospital – to plan and design a bone implant for the nose, to be produced on a 3d printer using a medical substance called Peek.

The surgery was performed on Thursday morning, March 30, and lasted a mere 30 minutes. Shortly after the operation, Benayahu reported feeling well and anxious to go back to his training.

Dr. Avi Toueg, a senior physician at the department, explained: "At the A.B. Dental company they designed a model of the nose and we produced an implant to complete the missing parts in Benayahu's face. We prepared four models using different materials in various thicknesses, and during the surgery we used the one that fit the best, to get the best functional and most aesthetically pleasing result."
