## Misperceptions of medical education in Japan: how reform is changing the landscape.

A number of Western physicians have highlighted shortcomings in Japanese medical education over the years. In recent years, however, there has been dramatic change in the system of medical education in Japan that renders some of these observations inaccurate and others worthy of several caveats.

arXiv:1305.4717 [math.DS] 21 May 2013

We obtain Limit formulae for multiple ergodic averages associated with the action of $\F_{p}^{\omega}$. From this we deduce multiple Khintchine-type recurrence Results analogous to those for $\Z$-systems obtained by Bergelson, Host, and Kra, and also present some new counterexamples in this setting....

We unravel that HypT is activated by methionine oxidation to methionine sulfoxide. Interestingly, so far only inactivation of cellular proteins by methionine oxidation has been reported. Mutational analysis revealed three methionines that are essential to confer HOCl resistance. Their simultaneous s...
