MACY'S THANKSGIVING PARADE
Macy's Thanksgiving Parade es una cabalgata anual que tiene lugar en Nueva York el Día de Acción de Gracias, el cuarto jueves de noviembre. Patrocinado por los grandes almacenes Macy's, este desfile de globos con personajes de dibujos animados, bandas de música y grupos de personas que vienen de todas las partes de EE.UU. recorre las calles de Broadway a la vez que se televisa a todo el país. En el desfile son típicas unas carrozas profusamente adornadas llamadas floats, en las que van montados cantantes famosos y estrellas de Broadway. A pesar de que se celebra el Día de Acción de Gracias, el tema del desfile es la Navidad y Santa Claus siempre va en la última carroza.

Being insensitive to photon scattering, MSOT dramatically improves upon conventional bio-optic barriers by enabling (1) three-dimensional high-resolution optical imaging deep inside tissues (several millimetres to centimetres), by (2) high-scalability, ranging from optical-resolution microscopy to acoustic-resolution optical mesoscopy and macroscopy and by (3) novel label-free anatomical, physiological and molecular contrast at the tissue and single-cell-level, based on spectrally-resolved optical absorption.
Organoleptic Analysis: Organoleptic analysis involved the use of sight, smell, taste, touch and macroscopy of crude drugs to evaluate plant materials often comparing the properties of a known sample with that of a reference standard.
Macroscopy, microscopy and organolepsy are direct assessments of the plant material while many other techniques assess the chemical characteristics and profiles of plant materials.
