Motormouth
MOTORMOUTH was a Saturday morning children's television series that was produced by Television South and aired across the ITV network for four series, running between 3 September 1988 and 4 April 1992. Each series generally ran from the autumn of one year to the spring of the next, as was common among many 'main' Saturday morning series. The programme was launched following the decision to axe No. 73 , which had run in the same slot until early 1988. No. 73 had been revamped during its final series as 7T3, with a partially exterior set. However, the new 7T3 set-up was expensive and difficult to produce, and so it was decided to switch to a fully studio-based set-up. The new show was produced as the same studio complex (The Maidstone Studios ) as its predecessor, and many of the production team (and several presenters) transferred to the new show

Prostate Cancer
PROSTATE CANCER is the development of cancer in the prostate , a gland in the male reproductive system . Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, some grow relatively quickly. The cancer cells may spread from the prostate to other parts of the body, particularly the bones and lymph nodes . It may initially cause no symptoms. In later stages it can lead to difficulty urinating , blood in the urine, or pain in the pelvis , back or when urinating. A disease known as benign prostatic hyperplasia may produce similar symptoms. Other late symptoms may include feeling tired due to low levels of red blood cells . Factors that increase the risk of prostate cancer include: older age, a family history of the disease, and race . About 99% of cases occur in those over the age of 50. Having a first-degree relative with the disease increases the risk two to threefold. In the United States, it is more common in the black population than the white population

Deconstruction
DECONSTRUCTION is philosopher Jacques Derrida 's critique of the relationship between text and meaning. Derrida's approach consists in conducting readings of texts with an ear to what runs counter to the structural unity or intended sense of a particular text. The purpose is to expose that the object of language and that which any text is founded upon is irreducibly complex, unstable, or impossible. Throughout his readings, Derrida hoped to show deconstruction at work, i.e., the ways that this originary complexity—which by definition cannot ever be completely known—works its structuring and destructuring effects. Many debates in continental philosophy surrounding ontology , epistemology , ethics, aesthetics , hermeneutics , and philosophy of language refer to Derrida's observations
