Random thoughts while wasting my time with shitty EHRs: shouldn't computerized semantic parsing be advanced enough by now that an algorithm should be able to take my free-form progress note and automatically populate all the fields instead of making me jump through hoops and wade through thickets of radio buttons and checkboxes?
GRRM ain't no saint, but, yeah, the show does seem even more misogynist than the books - Why are the Game Of Thrones showrunners rewriting the books into misogyny? - A.V. Club http://www.avclub.com/article...
I'm not entirely sure how what passes for my spiritual/mystical beliefs have more in common with Eastern spirituality/mysticism than Western spirituality/mysticism, when all my family, my teachers, my mentors, and most of the literature I've been exposed to have all been firmly grounded in Western traditions.
Things I've learned vicariously through social media: groups of adults tend to behave the way I've always imagined people at a co-ed high school would behave. (Yeah, I had an abnormal teen-aged experience. It probably explains most of my neuroses.)
So apparently in S. Korea, not only is it frowned upon for the captain to abandon ship without making sure passengers and crew are safe, it's actually totally illegal. Damn, I wonder if he's going to be charged with a capital crime?
Yes, things will get worse if we don't listen to each other. Things fall apart. The center cannot hold. Oh well. But you have no right to demand I listen to everything that you have to say without qualification and without the right to respond in kind.
I'm sorry, but this shit is dumb. You can say whatever the f- you want on the Internet. But free speech doesn't protect you from consequences. If Big Oil/Big Ag/Big Pharma no longer wants to fund your study because you said some horrible shit, that's market forces in action, not suppression of free speech
I honestly don't think that Windows 8/8.1 is all that horrible, but I kind of wonder if Windows 8 is sort of like what Rhapsody was for Apple: an interim, amorphous OS that was definitely not classic MacOS and with many of the underpinnings that would eventually become OS X (and iOS), except Microsoft actually released theirs to the public.
My sister's theory about why my brother and I have asthma, allergic rhinitis, and eczema and she doesn't is because before she was born, my brother and I lived near the oil refineries in Wilmington and Carson. My theory is that it's because she has an extra X-chromosome which prevents her from being saddled with all sorts of recessive traits.
