The game, created by the Atlanta gaming company White Wolf, centers on a 200 page book that describes, in elaborate detail, a fantasy world where vampires secretly coexist with humans. To enter this world, players create their own vampire characters, with specific powers and weaknesses.

Background: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a well recognised and life threatening complication in patients with cancer. However, the precise risk of VTE in hospitalised cancer patients in England has not been previously reported.Methods: We conducted a cohort study using linked Hospital Episodes Statistics and Office for National Statistics mortality data. We determined the risk of VTE separately for 24 cancer sites following first hospitalisation for cancer (index date) and how this varied by age, proximity from hospital admission, administration of chemotherapy and calendar time.Results: 3,558,660 patients were hospitalised for cancer between 1998 and 2012.

The Heated Razor is the first ever product from Gillette Labs (Gillette’s new experimental division), and while it’s gloriously silly, I have to admit it’s actually pretty good.
