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?

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).

“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:

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…

Yemen Blasts_ Suicide Bombers Strike Sanaa Mosques, Killing 137 People – NBC New

The ISIS affiliate in war-torn Yemen claimed responsibility for the attacks, according to Flashpoint Intelligence, a global security firm and NBC News consultant. It was the first large-scale attack claimed by the Sunni militants in Yemen, which has been in a state of chaos since Shiite Houthi rebels launched a violent power grab.

Dr. Alia Saria, head of emergency services at Yemen’s Ministry of Public Health and Population, confirmed the death toll to NBC News and said “hundreds” were injured. Mohammed Albasha, Yemen’s spokesperson in Washington, put the number of injured above 300. Albasha said the bombers struck Badr and al-Hashoosh mosques during Friday prayers — traditionally the busiest time of the week. Both mosques were hit by two bombers using similar tactics: one would detonate explosives inside the building while the second waited outside for people to flee before blowing himself up, Albasha explained.

One witness at the al-Hashoosh mosque told the AP he was thrown two meters by the blast.

“The heads, legs and arms of the dead people were scattered on the floor of the mosque,” Mohammed al-Ansi told the AP. “Blood is running like a river.”

This Lady Is Cooking Food Naked On YouTube, And Doritos Is Paying Her To Do It

Internet Food Lust

Chef Jenn is a 24-year-old Argentinian woman who’s racking up subscribers by cooking topless (with strategically-placed foods) on YouTube. Which would be weird in and of itself. It’s weirder that her channel appears to be sponsored by Doritos.

You’ve heard of “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen,” right? It has never rung truer than when you’re watching “A Fuego Maximo”—translation: “Maximum Fire” (You’ll understand why momentarily)—one Argentinian woman’s topless cooking channel on YouTube, which has already garnered over half a million views since its March 10th inception.

The Rise of YouTube Plagiarism Bots

By Jonathan Bailey on Mar 17, 2015 03:47 pm

YouTube Logo

For almost as long as there’s been a YouTube, there’s been spam on it.

Traditionally this spam has taken the format of garbage accounts uploading misleading videos, often with fake thumbnails, for the purpose of promoting products, services or some cause.

But while that type of spam still certainly exists on YouTube, it’s now being joined by a new kind of spam, automated videos that plagiarize content from blogs, news sites and other text sources.

For the spammer, this is a very easy way to flood YouTube with a large number of low-quality topical videos. The result for content creators, especially those who produce text or image content, is that your hard work is being used to fuel spam videoblogs and those spammers will have an upper hand in search results because of the way Google shows preference to YouTube in its algorithm.

This raises two difficult questions: What can YouTube do to battle this problem? And what can creators do to protect their work?

Tairod Nathan Webster Pugh, U.S. Air Force Veteran, Charged With Trying to Join ISIS

Tairod Nathan Webster Pugh, U.S. Air Force Veteran, Charged With Trying to Join ISIS
http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/tairod-nathan-webster-pugh-u-s-air-force-veteran-charged-n325101

A former U.S. Air Force mechanic has been charged with attempting to go to Syria to join ISIS, authorities said Tuesday. Tairod Nathan Webster Pugh was indicted Monday by a grand jury in Brooklyn on two charges, including attempting to provide material support to a terror organization.

The indictment said that Pugh was fired from a job in Kuwait as an airplane mechanic in December 2014. It said that he flew from Egypt to Turkey on January 10, in an effort to cross the border into Syria to join ISIS and wage violent jihad.

Turkish authorities denied him entry into the country, however, and sent him on a return flight to Egypt. He was deported from Egypt to the U.S. in January 15, after he was found carrying suspicious items, including a photograph of a machine gun.

Pugh was arrested on January 16, but the case has been sealed since that date.

Searches of his laptop revealed online queries about borders and crossing points controlled by the Islamic State, and videos showing ISIS executions. Posting on social media show Pugh repeatedly professed a desire never to return to the U.S., even though he has family — including children — in the country.

Pugh is a U.S. citizen whose last known address in the United States was in Neptune, New Jersey.

He served in the Air Force from 1986 to 1990 as an avionics instrument specialist, according to court documents. While in the Air Force, he reportedly received training in the installation and maintenance of aircraft engine, navigation, and weapons systems.

After leaving the Air Force, officials say, Pugh worked for a number of companies in the U.S. and Middle East as an avionics specialist and airplane mechanic.
