As a food preparation method, to chop is to cut food into irregularly shaped pieces. Despite the Webster 1913 definition, it should not be confused with mince, dice or chiffonade to name a few other methods that refer to specific sizes or shapes.

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, the first medical institution in America dedicated purely to caring for sick and injured children. CHoP first opened its doors in 1855 and today has a reputation as one of the finest pediatric hospitals in the USA, and indeed worldwide.

As well as the "front-line" services such as cure and care, CHoP has a large research facility which investigates a wide range of ailments affecting children. Of particular historical note is that vaccines for mumps, whooping cough and influenza were developed there, and currently much work is involved investigating child cancer and HIV.

If all you want to do is remove the trailing newline, you might be better off using chomp.

Chop is the nom de MC of Cherub Stewart, a practitioner of hip hop who has been dropping science for the past five years. She hails from the dirty south and makes music that is positive and good.

She rhymes with unbridled speed and a deep passion for increasing consciousness in her audience. love is Chop's raison d'etre: love of sounds and love of people. Teaching is natural to her as she has worked for many years in education. 

Chop has collaborated on stage and in the studio with the likes of Blu and Exile, Tanya Morgan, M1 of Dead Prez, Wu-Tang Clan, Medusa, Planet Asia, Geechi Suede of Camp Lo, and Shafiq of SA-RA.

Her field of inquiry is versatile in that she addresses both the historical and contemporary stuff like Sucka MCs on the radio.

My favorite track of her's is called School is In. The refrain is catchy and will make you want to join in: school is in, it's fun to learn, time to get in line.

Currently Chop is working on a new mix tape and an EP.

Her favorite smoothie is made with chocolate syrup, hemp milk, spirulina, banana and almond butter.

You can listen to some of her music here.
