in July 2012, Related News By:?Frank Luntz On election night 1994 as Republicans recaptured the House for the first time in 40 years I stood in the audience and watched my client Newt Gingrich who would soon become speaker of the House declare the beginning of the “Republican revolution” I knew immediately that the smartest man I had ever worked for was making the worst rhetorical blunder of his career Nobody voted Republican to start a revolution We all know what happened when Gingrich tried to turn his rhetoric into action Sound familiar No one is quite saying “revolution” this week but Republicans across the country in their glee over Tuesday’s elections are coming dangerously close to making the same mistake True there will now be more Americans under Republican representation than at any time in decades It was a tsunami; someone needs to get the Democrats a towel But that anti-Democrat wave was not the same as a pro-Republican endorsement In many races that went from blue to red Republican success was hardly because of what the GOP has achieved on Capitol Hill In fact if Americans could speak with one collective voice — all 310 million of them — this is what they said Tuesday night: “Washington doesn’t listen Washington doesn’t lead and Washington doesn’t deliver” The current narrative that this election was a rejection of President Obama misses the mark So does the idea that it was a mandate for an extreme conservative agenda According to a survey my firm fielded on election night for the political-advocacy organisation Each American Dream it was more important that a candidate “shake up and change the way Washington operates” They voted out those who promised to do more in favour of those who said they would do less but do it better The results were less about the size of government than about making government efficient effective and accountable Winning on Election Day is not the end The question is: What can Republicans at all levels do to make this happen and avoid repeating the mistakes of the past First hold Washington accountable From the cover-ups of veterans dying while being denied care to using the IRS to target conservative groups recent scandals highlight the chasm between hard-working taxpayers and Washington But this also means holding your colleagues accountable Second make the people’s priorities your priorities So tackle deficits and the national debt and root out the waste and abuse of government programmes Third stop blustering and fighting Don’t be afraid to work with your opponents if it means achieving real results This isn’t about pride of ownership regarding American progress; this is about progress period Americans don’t care about Democratic solutions or Republican solutions They just want common-sense solutions that make everyday life just a little bit easier But they can’t get their houses in order until Washington gets its own house in order The writer a communications adviser and Republican pollster is president of Luntz Global Partners a consulting firm The New York Times For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Adil Akhzer | Chandigarh | Published: June 15 2017 4:12 am PGI doctors maintained that the institute’s collection of human organs dates back to the 1970s Of the total preserved organs the majority are of the human brain numbering around 2500 ( File Photo) Top News The Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) is planning to set up a museum for anatomy Doctors said the proposed start-of-the-art museum would act as a teaching aid for medical students as well as serve as an attraction for visitors At present PGI has an anatomy museum on the campus but the new plan is for a manifold expansion The proposal that has now been prepared would require an outlay of approximately Rs 2 crore “Our existing collection runs into thousands of organ specimens from the human body It is probably the largest collection in India These could be an excellent source of medical education for resident doctors and faculty of the institute and even other institutes of the country With improved display and modernisation [in the new plan] it could be one of the best museums of Asia” PGI spokeswoman Manju Wadwalkar told the Chandigarh Newsline on Wednesday The museum as it exists now is located in a hall in the research block of PGI Not all specimens in the collection are on display due to the shortage of space The main visitors are PGI’s medical students The organ collection includes both healthy and diseased specimens harvested from cadavers PGI doctors maintained that the institute’s collection of human organs dates back to the 1970s Of the total preserved organs the majority are of the human brain numbering around 2500 The world over teaching hospitals have museums that are as well known as the institute itself The Gordon Museum of Anatomy at Guy’s Hospital in London is one such The Mutter Museum in Philadelphia at the non-teaching College of Physicians is famous for its exhibit of a piece of Albert Einstein’s brain According to the new proposal PGI officials said the museum would be divided into zones spread over different floors “The collection will be curated in the new museum in a manner so that the visitor can have a seamless learning experience of visiting the museum” said an official “There will be different zones including one for histology (study of microscopic tissues) self-study area conference space children’s section and also a tunnel of reflection” he stated “An additional mezzanine floor has been designed in the new plan to further connect via aerial bridge with the existing mezzanine” informed the official adding that the new museum would remain open for the general public as well A senior PGI official said: “Huge money is involved and the proposal is under active consideration Also deliberations on the financial part of the project have begun” For all the latest Chandigarh News download Indian Express App More Top News and questions of equity, Just respect our privacy.
