Bacterialvaginosis is a disease that's caused by the overgrowth of a type of bacteria that's called Gardnerella vaginalis, Gardnerella vaginalis. And as the name might suggest, this is the most common vaginal infection. Now I wanna put these really big quotes
around the term infection because the thing that's interesting about Gardnerella vaginalis is that it's a bacteriathat's naturally found in the vagina. Now some may consider this to be a sexually transmitted infection, which is interestingbecause it doesn't cause
any problems until there'stoo much of it there. So when we look to the causes of bacterial vaginosis, they are all things that change the vaginal environment. That can include acts like douching, so douching, or rinsing of the vagina. The other is having newor multiple sex partners.
And finally, another known cause is the use of antibiotics. This could be in the case of somebody that has a throat infection or a pneumonia that's on antibiotics which will then attackthe bacteria that exists within the vagina andallow Gardnerella vaginalis to overgrow and cause bacterial vaginosis.
So we've touched a little bit on it here, but I wanna draw it out. So when we talk about the pathophysiology of a disease, we'retalking about the mechanism by which that disease occurs. So in order to understandthe pathophysiology of bacterial vaginosis, we need to take a look at a sample of bacteria
that exists in the vagina. So I'll draw out someGardnerella vaginalis bacteria, and so I'll put this up in our key. This is the symbol forGardnerella vaginalis. And I'll draw a few of them around here, but I also wanna show that there are a lot of other bacteriathat exist in this sample. So if you really look at it here,
TEDxMaastricht Simon Sinek First why and then trust
Thank you. Thank you very much. What I love about events like these is that it is not just people coming together to hear ideas. It's that we all came here for the same reason. Every single one of us came here because we share something, we have similar values and similar beliefs and that's the reason we showed up.
We don't know each other and yet we know something about each other. Now this is important, you see, because the very survival of the human race depends on our ability to surround ourselves with people who believe what we believe. When we're surrounded by people who believe what we believe something remarkable happens:
Trust emerges. Make no mistake of it, trust is a feeling, a distinctly human experience. Simply doing everything that you promise you're going to do does not mean people will trust you. It just means you're reliable. And we all have friends who are total screw ups and yet we still trust them. Trust comes from a sense of common values and beliefs. And the reason trust is important,
is because when we are surrounded with people who believe what we believe, we're more confident to take risks. We're more confident to experiment, which requires failure, by the way. We are more confident to go off and explore knowing that there is someone from within our community, someone who believes what we believe,
someone we trust and who trusts us, will watch our back, help us when we fall over and watch our stuff and look after our children while we're gone. Our very survival depends on our ability to surround ourselves with people who believe what we believe. I'll show you an example that freaks me out every time I talk about it. What is our most valuable possession on the planeté Our children, righté
Our most valuable possession on the planet are our children. So let's game out a scenario. Let's imagine we're going out on a date. So we require a babysitter. We've two options. Option number one: there's a 16year old from just down the street from within the community with barely, if any, babysitting experience. There's a 32year old who just moved
Is Google able to crawl protocols other than and s
Today's question comes fromDaniel or Daniel I'm really bad with umlauts, I apologizeVoogsgerd from the Netherlands. The question is, Is Googleable to crawl more protocols than http and httpsé I believe the answer is yes. I believe we havesupport to crawl FTP. But really that's prettyfar off the beaten path.
So, if at all possible, I wouldtry to make sure that your pages are http or https. We did build a crawler way backin the day with the support for multiple protocols. So the ability to crawleverything from WML and WAP and stuff like that, if you'veknown about those types of mark up language. But in general it's usuallybest if you stick to
