Salah satu kata yang bisa mendeskripsikan keberhasilan timnas Laos tembus final AFF U19 adalah mengejutkan. Terkejut karena timnas yang biasanya tak terlalu diperhitungkan di Asia Tenggara ini berhasil membungkam Thailand 2-0 di semifinal AFF U19. Di sisi lain, capaian itu menjadi catatan bersejarah untuk Laos. Untuk pertama kalinya, Laos masuk partai final kejuaraan sepak bola untuk konteks Asia Tenggara. Keberhasilan Laos U19 bisa membahasakan peta sepak bola Asia Tenggara. Terlihat dominasi 3 atau pun 4 negara bukanlah harga mutlak untuk mencapai tangga juara di Asia Tenggara. Bukan tak mungkin, Laos keluar sebagai juara jika mengalahkan Malaysia. Jalan Laos ke partai final barangkali tak terlalu menarik perhatian banyak pihak. Barangkali banyak yang tersadar dengan kekuatan Laos ketika Laos berhasil mengalahkan Thailand dan sudah berada di partai final. Lebih jauh, hal ini membahasakan perjalan timnas di Asia Tenggara. Beberapa timnas sudah berbenah. Laos U19 menjadi salah satu contoh dari perubahan timnas di Asia Tenggara. Para pemain muda ini bisa menjadi tulang punggung Laos di masa depan. Tak berlebihan jika mengatakan bahwa Laos akan menjadi tim yang perlu ‘diwaspadai’ pada waktu yang akan datang. Selain Laos, yang patut disebutkan juga adalah Filipina. Gerakan naturalisasi pemain keturunan menjadi salah satu cara timnas Filipina menggenjot kekuatan timnas di kancah AFF. Berkomentarlah secara bijaksana dan bertanggung jawab. Belum ada komentar.

In what Modern Pox, or Syphilis, Consists. 5 In the phagedenic chancre, the ulcer increases pe- ripherally or advances, eating right and left, almost in a zigzag. It penetrates into the connective tissue, which it destroys, and under the skin, which it perforates at various points. Sometimes one of the extremities cica- trizes as the chancre pursues its destructive march. Its invading and serpiginous course is rarely regular, and the disturbances are difficult to repair. They may even bring on death. I saw a case of this nature at Lourcine, when I was interne at that hospital, in 1881. Case I. (Personal).-A poor girl of 23, in the salle Fracastor (formerly St. At the time I saw the patient, the chancre formed a very regular circle 10 centimetres in diameter, without exaggeration; the skin and con- nective tissue were absolutely destroyed, as well as the 6heath of the muscles, which latter appeared naked, admirably dissected. One would have said that the coverings had been removed with a punch, and that a part of the skin had been cut out with scissors and Scarpa’s triangle1 prepared for demonstration.
The unfortunate died of ex- haustion about eight months after the first appearance of the chancre. It is the only death from a venereal disease that I had an opportunity of witnessing during my stay at Lourcine, and yet I observed many patients in that hospital; it would be difficult to tell the exact number within a few hundreds. So, one can die of a non-infecting chancre, for this woman was not syphilitic; but it must be admitted that this is rare, especially nowadays. A last point to note, and I will have done with this parallel. 3c5i’, groin), or “kernel” which is always painful, and often suppurates. With the primary lesion of 1 Scarpa’s Triangle: An anatomical region which is dissected pre- paratory to examinations. 6 Syphilis To-day and Among the Ancients. This ganglion, which is sometimes as large as a walnut, is known, in hospital slang, under the name of prefet of the groin. This ganglionic pleiad, very hard to the touch, is absolutely indolent and never sup- purates.
It is not a bubo, then, to speak properly. When these buboes suppurate, the syphilis is accom- panied by gonorrhoea, soft chancre, or scrofula, or a neighboring wound; but that it could occur from the syphilitic process, I would almost regard as an impossi- bility. Thierry de Hery, lieutenant-general of the king (Henry II), knew already, in the sixteenth century, that there were chancres not followed by secondary accidents, and that the suppurating bubo did not belong to syphilis. He had then foreseen the duality of the chancre estab- lished in our days by Ricord in an irrefutable manner. “ As often appears in many who have bad and malignant ulcers, which will be difficult to cure, because nature makes an effort to evacuate the said venom by those parts, and if a bubo appears, otherwise called a ‘ kernel,’ which receives the said fluxion, the ulcer will be healed and cured in a short time, and the patient will be free from pox.”1 Besides, we have stated that the indurated chancre itself does not suppurate, and we shall see shortly that the secondary accidents do not suppurate either, or very slightly, this second period being a vege- tating phase rather than a destructive one.
