Please Help Hugo The Former Stray
POSTED ON MARCH 29, 2015 BY KELLY S.

My friend Jasper just adopted this beautiful cat, Hugo, who was a stray. Unfortunately poor Hugo was attacked by something before Jasper rescued him and he needed surgery. She wasn’t expecting the vet bills so it’s hitting her hard financially.

-Blog _ I Do And Adieu! _

 

She has set up a gofundme page to try and help pay the vet bills so she can continue to help Hugo get vet care (he needs more on going care and medicine while he heals from the surgery). Please go to her gofundme page to donate. Even if you can only donate a dollar, please donate. Every little bit helps. Please share the link to either her gofundme page or this post so others can help. I donated my last $13 I had on my debit card. What will you do to help?

Lies, And Cover-ups – An American Business Policy

This is a comment I found on a blog out there. It may affect any of us, were we in a profession that requires drug and substance testing. A friend of mine, Michael Langan is a doctor of medicine. As laws are in effect that mandatory licit and illicit substance testing is required, my friend has been framed.

The lab where this testing is done made some mistakes, and to cover up their blunders, have falsified documents. This wasn’t done to Michael to hurt him. It was done to cover their butts, and save the company name.

The lab is just another big business, whose sole purpose is to make money, and if their results were to show inattentive and sloppy work, it may invalidate all of the tests run by said lab. The lab can’t have that, so Michael is supposed to allow an injustice done to him.

Michael has been dealing with this issue since July of 2011, and if these issues aren’t corrected, he will lose his license to practice. As things stand, the lab in question has its integrity and accountability at risk, and we all know business can do no wrong. Please read these statements, and follow the links to judge for yourselves, what this story is about.

There is a petition on one of these links that would help justice be served. Sign the petition and share it on Facebook, twitter, G+, and every other platform you can. Thank you! Some of the legalese is a pain, but this needs your attention. What if this were you?
michael, this link is broken

Thanks, I need all the help I can get. This also impacts nurses. Many states now cover everything from acupuncturists to veterinarians but the ultimate goal is to replace DOT and other EAPs.

The medical profession is just a wedge as PHPs are transitioning from “physician health programs” to “professionals health programs.” They have already entered the airline industry (and they are putting up a lot more resistance than the medical profession ever did) State Medical Societies and the AMA are unfortunately complicit with the “feel-good” fallacies they offer. All they would have to do is look at the evidence base to see it is all trumped-up propaganda and these programs are neither protecting the public nor saving anyone (or any money for that matter).

Below are comments from allnurses.com http://allnurses.com/nurses-recovery/ipn-contract-rn-942026-page2.html#post8378305

“Physician Suicide and Physician Health Programs: The Elephant in the Room ( http://disruptedphysician.com/2015/02/25/the-elephant-in-the-room-physician-suicide-and-physician-health-programs/ )

Any and all nurses involved in IPN or ANY monitoring program needs to read up on this. Everything that the physicians are doing, nurses follow in kind. The next layer to come down the pike will be LIFETIME contracts. WAKE UP PEOPLE”

“IPN PRN all these monitoring agencies in all states are corrupt. How many nurses on this forum have gotten screwed. There is NO ONE to appeal. When IPN makes a mistake and believe me THEY DO. who receives the fallout? YES there should be oversite. They can decide anything they want. They can mandate that ice pick lobotomy is the new” treatment” requirement. That is NOT that far out. They performed the procedure in the office in 1967!!!. it takes numbers people to stop this. Call or write the state auditor. Complain about IPN abuse of power and conflict of interests. There needs to be an investigation. It has to stop.”

Below is what they ultimately have planned:

CRUELTY UNDER THE SHIELD OF THE LAW AND IN THE NAME OF JUSTICE

How would you deal with a nasty family, whose sole purpose was to grab a future inheritance? How would you feel towards people who plot and scheme for an asset, they were to receive. What is it, that makes the younger generation feel entitled?

If something is yours, and you were to will it to others, would you expect them to wait for your demise, before they snatched it up? If you spent years taking care of someone, wouldn’t you expect at the least, respect? Respect for your wishes, if not love for your time, devotion, and hard work, giving them the life they now have?

Suppose this was your family, your children? The younger generations have been given broad boundaries, if this is a common way for them to act. No one should feel entitled, to have what they have not earned. Many might be given an inheritance, only for loving those that raised them. To try to take that future inheritance, while it is not yet in your grasp is wrong.

To hire shyster lawyers, to do your dirty work is wrong. If this were happening to you, how would you react? If you spent your life working, and paying, to provide for your family, and someone decided they wanted to take all of that away from you, how would you deal with that? What if it were your children, doing these things? I am sure you would be searching your soul, looking for the reason your children turned out this way.

That seems to be how those born of a privileged life seem to act. The attitude they are entitled, you owe them, they are your children , and you owe them. Privilege doesn’t seem to understand, no one owes them anything. Privilege breeds egocentric bastards and bitches.

If my own children pulled a stunt such as this, I would probably disown them. If I thought I could get away with it, I would hire a hitman, but, they are not to be trusted either.

The Doctor-The Power of Attorney-The Harm Done

Louise Fowler, is the daughter of an 89 year old woman who lost her husband to cancer in 2009. Her siblings have committed the grossest of atrocities. They have lied, cheated and hurt, not only their mother, but their sister, all in an attempt to steal their inheritance. The ” Houston Clan ” are a group of rich, young, well bred and educated spoiled snobs. Without regard for the wishes of their parents have taken the home of Angela Houston, as waiting for her to die, might be more time consuming than they would like. Please read these next few posts and pass this along. It is true money will buy you nearly everything you want, and if that takes too long, those in seats of power will just take what they want. Re-blog this to the world, and help create some justice for those that have no way to fight .

Nurses and Patients Demand Equal Rights!!!

This is another issue that needs to be brought forward to the public. The treatment of everyone needs to be both fair and just. Those that are treated poorly have the right to say so, in this country. If those at the top of the pyramid don’t like the bad press, they should take more care, to prevent atrocious acts. Punishing those that speak out against unfair treatment, is why we have so many problems in our society. I urge others to help make this known!

Psych Circus

Ideas, organization, and effort bring power and results! Ideas, organization, and effort bring power and results!

With this post, I introduce a project still in its infancy: its planning stages, really.

Nurses have long known that countless abuses and misbehaviors against us go unreported and unaddressed. Perpetrators are valued sources of revenue and prestige, and much protected. Nurses know from bitter experience: honest reports of real abuses through official channels more often result in retaliatory punishment of the nurse reporters than any accountability for perpetrators harming both nurses and patients. The only savior for such nurses has been publicity. My project aims to help nurses aim this light of day. The usual status quo severely risks patient safety and protects both fraudulent ‘care’ and malpractice. Nurses demand better! Our current path seems to lead ever deeper into such corruption, protected and encouraged by powerful interests that care only for profit, not patients. These interests have largely silenced nurses with ruthless retaliation against any…

Dear WordPress Support

I don’t know what exactly is going on with OM’s blog or the troubles he’s having, but I had thought I was following people, and they were following me as well, only to find I had to re-follow. I will send Jason an email and see what is going on. I recommend everyone re-blog this as a protest, or at least to make a point , and act as a statement! I know that may seem like biting the hand that feeds us, but sometimes speaking up is more important, than the consequences they bring.

Leading Anti-Marijuana Academics Are Paid By Painkiller Drug Companies

As Americans continue to embrace pot—as medicine and for recreational use—opponents are turning to a set of academic researchers to claim that policymakers should avoid relaxing restrictions around marijuana. It’s too dangerous, risky, and untested, they say. Just as drug company-funded research has become incredibly controversial in recent years, forcing major medical schools and journals to institute strict disclosure requirements, could there be a conflict of interest issue in the pot debate?

 

VICE has found that many of the researchers who have advocated against legalizing pot have also been on the payroll of leading pharmaceutical firms with products that could be easily replaced by using marijuana. When these individuals have been quoted in the media, their drug-industry ties have not been revealed.

Take, for example, Dr. Herbert Kleber of Columbia University. Kleber has impeccable academic credentials, and has been quoted in the press and in academic publications warning against the use of marijuana, which he stresses may cause wide-ranging addiction and public health issues. But when he’s writing anti-pot opinion pieces for CBS News, or being quoted by NPR and CNBC, what’s left unsaid is that Kleber has served as a paid consultant to leading prescription drug companies, including Purdue Pharma (the maker of OxyContin), Reckitt Benckiser (the producer of a painkiller called Nurofen), and Alkermes (the producer of a powerful new opioid called Zohydro).

Denver’s Marijuana Gold Rush Is Forcing Out Locals. Read more here.
https://news.vice.com/article/denvers-marijuana-gold-rush-is-forcing-out-locals
Kleber, who did not respond to a request for comment, maintains important influence over the pot debate. For instance, his writing has been cited by the New York State Association of Chiefs of Police in its opposition to marijuana legalization, and has been published by the American Psychiatric Association in the organization’s statement warning against marijuana for medicinal uses.

Google images

Could Kleber’s long-term financial relationship with drug firms be viewed as a conflict of interest? Studies have found that pot can be used for pain relief as a substitute for major prescription painkillers. The opioid painkiller industry is a multibillion business that has faced rising criticism from experts because painkillers now cause about 16,000 deaths a year, more than heroin and cocaine combined. Researchers view marijuana as a safe alternative to opioid products like OxyContin, and there are no known overdose deaths from pot.

 

Other leading academic opponents of pot have ties to the painkiller industry. Dr. A. Eden Evins, an associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, is a frequent critic of efforts to legalize marijuana. She is on the board of an anti-marijuana advocacy group, Project SAM, and has been quoted by leading media outlets criticizing the wave of new pot-related reforms. “When people can go to a ‘clinic’ or ‘cafe’ and buy pot, that creates the perception that it’s safe,” she told the Times last year.

Hightimes.com

These academic revelations add fodder to the argument that drug firms maintain quiet ties to the marijuana prohibition lobby.
Notably, when Evins participated in a commentary on marijuana legalization for the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, the publication found that her financial relationships required a disclosure statement, which noted that as of November 2012, she was a “consultant for Pfizer and DLA Piper and has received grant/research support from Envivo, GlaxoSmithKline, and Pfizer.” Pfizer has moved aggressively into the $7.3 billion painkiller market. In 2011, the company acquired King Pharmaceuticals (the makers of several opioid products) and is currently working to introduce Remoxy, an OxyContin competitor.
https://news.vice.com/article/dea-accused-of-obstructing-research-on-marijuana-benefits
As ProPublica reported, painkiller-funded researchers helped fuel America’s deadly addiction to opioids such as OxyContin and Vicodin. These academics, with quiet funding from major pain pill firms, encouraged doctors to over-prescribe these drugs for a range of pain relief issues, leading to where we stand today as the world’s biggest consumer of painkillers and the overdose capital of the planet. What does it say about medical academia today that many of that painkiller-funded researchers are now standing in the way of a safer alternative: smoking a joint.

Thanks to +JOHN SKEATS, for the inspiration and the permission to be able to post this!

This is probably copyrighted material ©

I found a post in my email from someone at Google plus, about using and re-sharing posts. There is always a copyright problem. It used to be, a copyrighted article or picture had a copyright logo on it. That logo is a circle with a c, in the center.
http://www.copywriting-on-demand.com/on-a-pc.html
If you want to add this logo to your work, here is how to do that.

On a PC

… simply hold down the ‘Alt’ key and key in the numerals 0169. When you next lift your finger off ‘Alt’, the copyright symbol will appear. NB You must use the numeric keypad on the right of the keyboard. NOT the numerals running along the top. ©

Typing the copyright symbol on a MAC… http://www.copywriting-on-demand.com/on-a-mac.html
… simply enter Option + G
So…I got a post saying it isn’t cool to share others work unless you have express permission to do so. EVEN if that work is public, and has been shared publicly. There are ways to find out about whether something is copyrighted, or in ” public domain ” , and I will bring that article to you tomorrow, maybe….

Resharing Other People’s Materials: What You Should and Should Not Do

You are implicitly welcome to use the Google+ Re-share function to re-share any Public posts with anyone you want. That is arguably the highest compliment you can give for a post. Mentioning the person who created the post in your re-share and giving a “hat tip” to a person who might have re-shared the copy you saw is not only courteous, but is likely to result in those people joining the conversations on your posts, as well.

It is never appropriate to copy-and-paste someone else’s post content (text or photos) into a post of your own without the express permission of the original poster. That is true — even if you include a comment crediting the original author or photographer. Not only is that poor etiquette, but there is a good chance that you would be violating copyright laws as well if you were to do that doing so.

One important note: you should always be careful re-sharing posts that were shared privately because the originator of the post might consider re-sharing with the wrong audience a breach of their privacy. If you are not sure, ask the person who created the post before re-sharing their post with anyone the original post was not shared with.

+rusty garner-smith You’re welcome to re-share it. I shared it with Public and did not disable re-shares, so that is implicitly okay. I would not appreciate your copying the post and sharing it as if it were a new post even if you included an attribution.

So, I got permission to post this legally. It took nearly all day to do so, and I went through all kinds of channels to make this happen. If you have questions about whether you can or can’t post something, the best course of action is to locate the ” ORIGINAL ” document, or author and see what permissions are required. Again I want to thank +JOHN SKEATS for his contribution on this article.

Here are the comments that came up, before I got my answers, and I am sorry to all of those who responded, I don’t have time to ask all of you If I may include this in the article. Once again we run into the question ” Re-sharing Other People’s Materials: What You Should and Should Not Do “.

Thanks, +Nel Pa. Unfortunately, I have to agree with you about the large number of people who steal other people’s work — because that it is really what it is. I have run into a lot of people who do not realize that what they are doing is wrong, so we can always hope that at least some of them will see posts like this and finally get it.

maybe there should be some mention of those who all they do is reshare posts, often without any obvious purpose. I tend to block those who just reshare dozens of posts in a short space of time when there is no attempt to add to or explain why they are resharing so many posts.

Hey +John Skeats: May I re-post this for others to use? I do agree with the comments about this subject. Sometimes the original poster doesn’t respond to inquiries, and if the post is important, many miss out on said information. I probably have violated many rules, for these reasons.
