Why Doctors Are Sick of Their Profession - WSJ -
Why Doctors Are Sick of Their Profession - WSJ
"All too often these days, I find myself fidgeting by the doorway to my exam room, trying to conclude an office visit with one of my patients. When I look at my career at midlife, I realize that in many ways I have become the kind of doctor I never thought I'd be: impatient, occasionally indifferent, at times dismissive or paternalistic. Many of my colleagues are similarly struggling with the loss of their professional ideals." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
"only 6% described their morale as positive." It's no wonder so many self-medicate. - Ken Morley
I wonder how much the internet has contributed to this... Is it harder to feel heroic when your better-informed patients cause you to second-guess yourself? - Ken Morley
The surgery I attend is classified as a training surgery, which essentially means that doctors who have finished their education and done their mandatory time at a hospital work there for a year before they go to their chosen practice. It is a joy to see them so eager before the system has crushed the care out of them. - Slippy
Crush the Care Out should be the name of an all burnt out doctors band. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Ken, if as a doctor you have a hero complex rather than a get the person well complex then perhaps you should be doing something else? - Todd Hoff
Well I don't mean to bring the room down but I consider this merely one of the symptoms of middle age. You get tired of doing the same thing you've always done? Shit, Get in line. - MoTO: Team Marina from Android
It is also frustrating when the treatment plans for better health are continually ignored by the patient. - Janet from FFHound!
Isn't the interesting question then is how could treatment plans be structured to be better followed? Typically plans are in the form of orders, which isn't all that helpful. - Todd Hoff
Todd, if you are a diabetic and you are asked to follow a simple diet plan and walk 10 minutes post meal and you don't. If you have asthma and on oxygen and you are asked AND assisted to cease smoking and you do not. How much more structure is needed? I believe in personal accountability but similar to give me something for my headache and then I won't take the medicine. Then I complain about my headache. - Janet
A simple diet plan? It's not a diet change. It's a total change of your life. Everything you've done your whole life is not only wrong, it's killing you. Every meal out, every meal at home, every time you want a snack, every time you are thirsty, every birthday, every holiday, every social situation, everything has changed. How do you make the transition? There's nothing simple about it. - Todd Hoff
Enabler or caretaker. You are preaching to someone who lost loved ones because they would not or could not break their health disorder. Psychological counseling with dietician supplementing better choices? My point is the vicious circle of 'help me doctor' - 'I will not take responsibility for my actions' - 'help me doctor'. I am a burned out healthcare worker, sorry. - Janet from FFHound!
I'm not preaching, I'm saying what my experience has been. I definitely hear you about taking responsibility for your actions. But just giving an edict and tossing up your hands when it's not followed is also avoiding responsibility. How could that ever work? I don't see how psychological counseling with dietician will be effective. People need to learn how they can live their lives completely differently. I don't think that can be done with a visit to get a lecture. - Todd Hoff
People under going weight reduction surgery DO get psychological therapy pre-surgical. It is approaching the mental and physical. Stigma exists for people to openly admit and accept help. - Janet from FFHound!
How effective is it? - Todd Hoff
Very, it is a life changing step they take. We have a very busy bariatric surgeon at our hospital and psychotherapy as well as dietary as well as physical rehab are part of the program. I can count six of my co-workers having success with the full revision surgery. More complications and less success with the lap band. Patients can overeat with those. - Janet
Odd that we don't do that for other interventions? - Todd Hoff

From marvellous to awesome: how spoken British English has changed | Science | The Guardian -
From marvellous to awesome: how spoken British English has changed | Science | The Guardian
"A study called the Spoken British National Corpus 2014 reveals how our use of language is evolving. Is British English succumbing to American influence?" - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Early evidence from their project, the Spoken British National Corpus 2014 , shows that "awesome" now turns up in conversation 72 times per million words. "Marvellous", which 20 years ago appeared 155 times per million words, now appears just twice per million. "Fortnight" is also on the endangered list, as is "cheerio". (That's "cheerio" meaning goodbye, young people, as opposed to the singular form of the breakfast cereal, which you would only tend to use if you got one stuck up your nose.)" - Maitani
Spoken BNC2014 project announcement - Maitani
"The project is now calling on people to send in MP3s of their conversations – they'll even pay a small amount – in order to gain a wider sense of how the language as it is spoken has changed over the years." - Maitani
certainly most interested in accents other than the Queen's English -- when the audio samples are collected they should make a game like -- what's your high score? - Adriano
Brilliant! :) - Ken Morley
Adriano, I haven't played that game often, although it is fun and I should try it again! I don't think I can score very high, maybe because I am studying dead languages most of the time, "pronouncing" in my mind what I am reading. Anyway, I should listen to people speaking living languages a bit more! - Maitani
Maitani, you too! I like Pali spoken using Japanese phonetics :-) but would like to learn the differences in nuance between a singular language, English with spoken accents: Welsh, Irish, Scotish, Liverpoolish, etc. (For prank calls :-) - Adriano
I like to listen to these various dialects and accents, too. It is just a matter of finding the time for it all. - Maitani

Oh my- what a good day. Kids took me to Lebanese Taverna for a late lunch of samplers of Everything Vegetarian and a Mojito. The waitress treated me to a free dessert of baclava and pistachio ice cream. And then there were presents! A sweater knit with an owl design, a blue&white Chinese glass ornament, the world's cutest hedgehog made of sticks, and "Letters of Note." Thanks everyone for your good wishes! - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Walt, tell me about this! I will be 62 when my husband turns 70. Because of the age difference I will be early retirement at 59, 58 if I can hoard enough to pay my health insurance. If he must take the test of his pensions I may need to rethink the plan. - Janet from FFHound!
"So, here some of my favourite ruined churches around Britain. If Lindisfarne is perhaps the most evocative, Dryburgh Abbbey has possibly the most beautiful setting, on a bend of the River Tweed, near Kelso in the Scottish Borderts. But my personal favourite is St Dunstan in the East, in London. Nestled, almost unseen, in the shadow of the Gherkin and the Lloyd’s Building, it was originally built in the eleventh century, rebuilt by Christopher Wren after it had been damaged in the Great Fire of London, and then almost destroyed during the Blitz. The church remains today in ruins but within and around it has been created a wild and wonderful garden. The remaining windows are draped with Virginia creeper and ornamental vine. Inside the roofless walls thrive such exotic plants as Moroccan broom, New Zealand flax and Japanese snowball. The effect is quite enchanting." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
Seems like Pompei. - Margot
St Dunstan-in-the-West on Fleet Street, though also bombed in WW II, is still active and worth a visit. It's about as ecumenical as a Christian church can get, being home to both an Anglican and Romanian Orthodox congregations: "St Dunstan-in-the-West is home to the Anglican and Eastern Churches Association, and is a centre of prayer for Christian Unity. It is therefore appropriate that... more... - David Lounsbury
What a contrast! Now I dream of visiting both churches, if I ever get around to take a trip to London. - Maitani

BBC News - India: Ancient university reopens after 800 years
"Nalanda University, in the eastern state of Bihar, was first established in the 5th Century during the Gupta dynasty. It was was said to have attracted thousands of scholars and thinkers from around the world but the site was destroyed in the 1193 AD by an invading Turkish army. The new campus is set to be spread over 443 acres (179 hecatares) about 15km (9 miles) from where the original university stood, the Times of India reports." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

I don't say it enough (or perhaps I never have) but I admire the hell out of Jimminy. He gets it done, even though half the time I have no idea what he's doing. And in a world of people who constantly brag about "keeping it real" he just does it.

Today was a great day y'all. Played my first bike polo game and scored a goal even though I don't have control of the bike or the mallet yet. Then an awesome lady friend took me to dinner and offered me the spare room in her house by saying 'you're not going to need it, but if you do it's yours'. I continue to be humbled by the care and concern...

Global warming denial: Claims of Arctic ice recovering are exaggerated.
"Briefly: Arctic sea ice reaches a minimum in late September every year. The overall trend for the amount of ice at that time is decreasing; in other words, there is less ice all the time. Some years there is more than others, some less. But the trend is down, down, down." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"The black line is the average for 1981 – 2010. The gray region shows the ±2 standard deviation temperatures for that average; statistically speaking it’s an expected range of temperatures (it’s actually more subtle than that, but that’s enough to understand what’s going on here). The dashed line shows the 2012 ice extent, and is clearly very low, well outside the expected range. The... more... - Mark H
This post is partially true and partially untrue. Why do they have to make their own misleading charts here is the hard data. Are we incapable of interpreting it? - Eric Logan
Actually it's not their own chart it's the one that best fits the narrative. I have been watching DMI for years. the mean near average is 2001, but we are also very near 2005 numbers and multi year ice another important metric is increasing not decreasing.
