Michael Collins 1890-1922) Irish Nationalist, Sinn Fein leader, founder and director

Michael Collins 1890-1922) Irish Nationalist, Sinn Fein leader, founder and director of intelligence of the Irish Republican Army 1919, minister for finance in the provisional government of the Irish Free State 1922, and for ten days Head of State before being killed. Born in County Cork, he became an active member of the Irish Republican Brotherhood and in 1916 fought in the Easter Rising. In 1918 he was elected a Sinn Fein member to the Dail, and became a minister in the Republican Provisional government. In 1921 he and Arthur Griffith were mainly responsible for the treaty that established the Irish Free State. During the ensuing civil war, Collins took command and crushed the opposition in Dublin and the large towns within a few weeks. When Griffiths died Collins became head of the state and the army, but he was ambushed near Cork by fellow Irishmen on 22nd August and killed.

Illustration of lung bronchioles and alveoli Featured 2002 Print

Illustration of lung bronchioles and alveoli

Illustration of lung bronchioles and alveoli. The lung consists of many branched air passages called bronchioles (upper left), which end in groups of tiny balloon-like sacs called alveoli. It is in each alveolus that gases are exchanged during re- spiration. The bronchiole walls are lined spirally with smooth muscle (here, coloured orange). The alveolar sacs are thin-walled and supplied with a capillary network of blood vessels. Pulmonary veins (blue) bring deoxygenated blood to the lungs which is oxygenated by gas exchange across the alveolar walls (see lower left). Arteries (red) transport this oxygenated blood to the body. There are about 300 million alveoli in a human lung
