Description

Cover Story, "Death Isn't A Four-Letter Word" by Dr. Ronald H. Epp

A series of recent discoveries and new medical techniques have brought additional challenges to medicine, law and society. These include resuscitation, organ transplants, extracorporeal blood circulation and hypothermia, a procedure which involves the lowering of body temperature. My basic question is not when does death occur, but rather whether life ought to be salvaged if there are serious concerns about its quality.

Also featured, "Center Established on Campus"

Memphis, and its surrounding area, have experienced slight tremors every few years, and because of these small quakes and the major earthquake potential of the New Madrid area, the Tennessee Earthquake Center was established at Memphis State University last summer.
