:::the Last Lecture:::

Assalamualaykum.. 
halloo..i'm still alive..
before lectures on Gastrointestinal finish, i would like to deliver a last lecture, CEH, no lahh..kidding meh..(cam bess sangat myself.ahaha!)
this is a sharing, non-tragic of a misery  story .actually, was recommended by my surgeon/lecturer on last week.



On September 18, 2007, computer science professor Randy Pausch stepped in front of an audience of 400 people at Carnegie Mellon University to deliver a last lecture called “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.”
With slides of his CT scans beaming out to the audience, Randy told his audience about the cancer that is devouring his pancreas and that will claim his life in a matter of months.
 On the stage that day, Randy was youthful, energetic, handsome, often cheerfully, darkly funny. He seemed invincible.
But this was a brief moment, as he himself acknowledged.
Randy’s lecture has become a phenomenon, as has the book he wrote based on the same principles, celebrating the dreams we all strive to make realities.


Sadly, Randy lost his battle to pancreatic cancer on July 25th, 2008, but his legacy will continue to inspire us all, for generations to come.



(he was soo energetic yet so funny.memang kelaka dowh lecture dia.haha!!)


:::What things that really triggered me,when he said this :




"And the other thing about football is we send our kids out to play football or soccer or swimming or whatever it is, and it’s the first example of what I’m going to call a head fake, or indirect learning. 


We actually don’t want our kids to learn football. I mean, yeah, it’s really nice that I have a wonderful three-point stance and that I know how to do a chop block and all this kind of stuff.


 But we send our kids out to learn much more important things. Teamwork, sportsmanship,perseverance, etcetera, etcetera.


 And these kinds of head fake learning are absolutely important.And you should keep your eye out for them because they’re everywhere."

---------don't you think this about perfectly correct in our real life?? yeah,all parents absolutely wanted their children to be multi-learner like a multiplayer.haha.. children look very talented of course. but on the other hand, do these really raising them(the children) up?? (sorry, for my improper english.hehe)


"Almost all of us have childhood dreams; for example, being an astronaut, or making movies or video games for a living. Sadly, most people don’t achieve theirs, and I think that’s a shame. I had several specific childhood dreams, and I’ve actually achieved most of them.  More importantly, I have found ways, in particular the creation (with Don Marinelli), of CMU’s Entertainment Technology Center of helping many young people actually *achieve* their childhood dreams." 


----there! he mentioned that it's ashame if we can't achieve our specific childhood dreams. Oh yea..me, alhamdulillah almost achieve all of my dreams,including my ambition. So, WAke up Aena!! fighting for the best for your future. Actually, sometimes, i don't realize that i'm on the path to be a doctor. kadang2 ketuk kepala tnya diri sendiri medical student ni nanti kerja ape yekk??-soalan stup*d i've questioned. but yea, kadang2 rasa seperti masih berada di takuk yang lama. Perasan secondary school lagi walaupun badan pam-pam mcm mak orang. Anyway, lots of complaints pun tarak guna,.With hikmah,we shall find a good solution..insyaALLAH..


ouhh! back to the topic,hehe..talking about his cancer, for our  information, pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer death in the United States. In 2008, an estimated 37,680 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and 34,290 will die from the disease. 
Early diagnosis for this particular type of cancer is extremely difficult, and there is no cure.

When you are touched by pancreatic cancer, your life changes in unimaginable ways.
