Cell

Серия: "-"

George Wilson, M. D., a radiology resident in Los Angeles, is about to enter a profession on the brink of an enormous paradigm shift, foreshadowing a vastly different role for doctors everywhere. The smartphone is poised to take on a new role in medicine, no longer as a mere medical app but rather as a fully customizable personal physician capable of diagnosing and treating even better than the real thing. It is called iDoc. George's initial collision with this incredible innovation is devastating. He awakens one morning to find his fiancee dead in bed alongside him, not long after she participated in an iDoc beta test. Then several of his patients die after undergoing imaging procedures. All of them had been part of the same beta test. Is it possible that iDoc is being subverted by hackers - and that the US government is involved in a cover-up? Despite threats to both his career and his freedom, George relentlessly seeks the truth, knowing that if he's right, the consequences could be lethal. The New York Times-bestselling author returns with a top-notch fusion of ground-breaking medical science and edge-of-your-seat suspense.

Cook, Robin

▪ 2006
Robert Finlayson Cook  British politician (b. Feb. 28, 1946, Belshill, Lanarkshire, Scot.—d. Aug. 6, 2005, Sutherland, Scot.), served as foreign secretary in the U.K. for four years following the Labour Party's return to power in 1997; he was recognized as having one of the sharpest minds in British politics and influence far beyond his official post. Cook was educated at the University of Edinburgh and taught school before entering politics. He became a Labour MP in 1974 and quickly established himself as a rousing and witty left-wing debater. In the 1980s, like many in the Labour's left wing who were shocked by the scale of the party's defeat in the 1983 general election, he became an active reformer. He worked closely with Neil Kinnock (Labour leader during 1983–92) and Tony Blair, who was elected party leader in 1994 and prime minister in 1997. As foreign secretary, Cook asserted that the U.K.'s foreign policy would henceforth have “an ethical dimension,” and in 1999 he and Blair persuaded an initially reluctant Pres. Bill Clinton to commit U.S. forces in Kosovo, in the former Yugoslavia. Following the 2001 general election, Blair demoted Cook to the lesser cabinet post of leader of the House of Commons. On March 17, 2003, Cook resigned from the government in protest against Blair's decision to support the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. In his resignation speech, delivered from the backbenches, Cook revived his reputation as a clever and effective debater, and by 2005 it was widely predicted that he would return to the cabinet following Blair's eventual resignation. Cook died from a heart attack while hill climbing in the Scottish Highlands.
