Kidney Failure
KIDNEY FAILURE, also known as RENAL FAILURE or RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, is a medical condition of impaired kidney function in which the kidneys fail to adequately filter metabolic wastes from the blood . The two main forms are acute kidney injury , which is often reversible with adequate treatment, and chronic kidney disease , which is often not reversible. In both cases, there is usually an underlying cause. Kidney failure is mainly determined by a decrease in glomerular filtration rate , which is the rate at which blood is filtered in the glomeruli of the kidney. The condition is detected by a decrease in or absence of urine production or determination of waste products (creatinine or urea ) in the blood. Depending on the cause, hematuria (blood loss in the urine) and proteinuria (protein loss in the urine) may be noted. In kidney failure, there may be problems with increased fluid in the body (leading to swelling), increased acid levels , raised levels of potassium , decreased levels of calcium , increased levels of phosphate , and in later stages anemia . Bone health may also be affected. Long-term kidney problems are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease

Shakespeare
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (/ˈʃeɪkspɪər/ ; 26 April 1564 (baptised ) – 23 April 1616) was an English poet , playwright , and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet , and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including collaborations , consist of approximately 38 plays , 154 sonnets , two long narrative poems , and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. Shakespeare
Shakespeare
was born and brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon , Warwickshire
Warwickshire
. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway , with whom he had three children: Susanna , and twins Hamnet and Judith . Sometime between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part-owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain\'s Men , later known as the King\'s Men . He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, at age 49, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare's private life survive, which has stimulated considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearance , sexuality , religious beliefs , and whether the works attributed to him were written by others

James Cagney
, released in the spring of 1935, had proven to be a big hit. Producer-director Phillips H. Lord thought there was a place on radio for a show of the same type. To emphasize the authenticity of his dramatizations, Lord produced the initial radio show, G-Men, in close association with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover . Hoover was not particularly favorable to the notion of such a program, but U. S. Attorney General Homer Stille Cummings gave it his full support. That first series dramatized FBI cases, but Hoover insisted that only closed cases would be used. Hoover also demanded that he or a top-level aide review and approve every script. Hoover preferred that scripts downplay gunfights and car chases, and spend more time on systematic investigation and legwork

I Led 3 Lives
I LED 3 LIVES (also known as I LED THREE LIVES) is an American drama series which was syndicated by Ziv Television Programs from October 1, 1953 to January 1, 1956. The series stars Richard Carlson . The show was a companion piece of sorts to the radio drama I Was a Communist for the FBI
FBI
, which dealt with a similar subject and was also syndicated by Ziv from 1952 to 1954. CONTENTS * 1 Synopsis * 2 Main cast * 2.1 Guest stars * 3 References * 4 External links SYNOPSISIt was loosely based on the life of Herbert Philbrick , a Boston advertising executive who infiltrated the U.S. Communist Party on behalf of the FBI
FBI
in the 1940s and wrote a bestselling book on the topic, I Led Three Lives: Citizen, 'Communist', Counterspy (1952). The part of Philbrick was played by Richard Carlson. I Led Three Lives lasted 117 episodes. Philbrick narrated each episode and served as a technical consultant — and all scripts were approved by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. Nonetheless, the episodes often had very little to do with the actual events of Philbrick's life, with plotlines taking Philbrick on journeys to Europe and South America. They gradually became more and more outlandish, featuring such supposed "Communist plots " as an attempt to convert vacuum cleaners into bomb launchers
