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).

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:

The other breakthrough associated with Ultra-Ever Dry is the superior coating adherence and abrasion resistance allowing it to be used in all kinds of applications!

Anti-Wetting

The superhydrophobic coating keeps objects dry, water and many other liquids simply repel off.
Anti-Icing

The superhydrophobic properties of Ultra-Ever dry keeps coated materials completely dry, eliminating the formation of ice.
Anti-Corrosion

Maximum corrosion protection since the superhydrophobic coating ensures water and moisture never actually contact the base material.
Anti-Contamination

Dust, dirt, water and other liquids that contain bacteria or radiation never actually contact the surface of the coated material so bacteria and radiation is greatly diminished or eliminated and easy to decontaminate to sterile, if needed.
Self-Cleaning

The Ultra-Ever Dry repels dirty water and thick oils, and remains clean and virtually bacteria-free. When dust, dirt or other molecules accumulate on a superhyrophobic coated surface, a light spray of water or a blast of air grabs the dust and removes it.

Nine Passes / Fly Fishing through the Past and Present of the High Sierra

Nine Passes / Fly Fishing through the Past and Present of the High Sierra
Author: TODD BRUCE

photo--Nine Passes_ Fly Fishing through the Past and Present of the High Sierra

-Nine Passes_ Fly Fishing through the Past and Present of the High Sierra

This book is a well written narration of a history involving an adventure, between the past and the present. If a reader judges a book by a title, then a non-fishing individual would probably pass on this book, and miss out on an actual history. This book is not guide to fishing, but a tale of a life long dream to retrace a past long gone by.

The history is three-fold in dimension, as it is a tale of a treasure discovered in grandma’s bookshelf. The author’s family hiked the trails of the Sierra Nevada mountains, following the John Muir Trail, when the author ” Todd Bruce ” was a child.

Todd had in turn found a book, given to his grandfather, George R Goldman, with an inscription written by a man named Les in the 1940’s. That book, a family treasure was read, and re-read by Todd while he was growing up. Todd’s family were avid hikers, campers and outdoor enthusiasts, who spent many vacations following the John Muir Trail.
That book was titled ” Waters of the Golden Trout Country “, written by a man named Charles “Mac” McDermand. Todd had learned fly fishing from an early age, and had honed his skill fly fishing on those hikes. That book inspired Todd to follow the routes “Mac” had followed, and to see if the lakes and streams, described in that book, were as they had once been.

That dream to retrace “Mac’s” adventures took many years to come to fruition. Todd had grown up, married, and raised a family, before he was able to actually follow his dream. This book describes his jubilation, rediscovering not only Mac’s past, but his own, as he discovered he had camped at some of the same locations he had read about, as a child.

Never having fly fished myself, I was intrigued with this adventure. The author describes the trails, and scenic wonders of the High Sierra Mountains, and the John Muir Trail in detail. He followed his childhood dream over a 5 week period, hiking a 300 mile trek, remembering not only his childhood, but revisiting the places he had read about, so many years ago.

The author, Todd Bruce, studied the region, flora and fauna extensively, over his lifetime and brings all of that knowledge to us in this book. The photographs and maps are stunning, and in many cases, Todd has also included photos from his treasured, ” Waters of the Golden Trout Country ”

I highly recommend this book to all, whether you are a fishing nut, history buff, or interested in hiking the High Sierra Mountains, and following the famous John Muir Trail. As an experienced back packer, I look forward to visiting the locations described by Todd, and even find myself interested in trying my hand at fly fishing in those remote lakes and streams of the High Sierra Mountains, along the John Muir Trail.

This book is available at AmazonBooks.com in Kindle form and paperback

Pareidolia – What’s That?

http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Pareidolia

Pareidolia is the phenomenon of recognizing patterns, shapes, and familiar objects in a vague and sometimes random stimulus. It’s the result of your brain trying to “make sense” of input that really has no sense to find in it.

This is seen often in inkblot tests, where random splatters of ink suggest different images to different people (look, it’s a conspiracy, they’re all deliberately made to look like vaginas!) but also in cases of people seeing visions, ghosts and other likenesses in what is actually just random patterns that happen to look like those things.

Examples
The Rorschach test, or the famous “inkblot” test asks people what they see in otherwise random blobs of ink. The accepted standard answers for the first four are A) a bat, B) a bat, C) a bat, and D) my father killing my mother with a hypodermic needle

($1 bill must be not too new and not too old) Hold dollar bill with pyramid and eagle facing you. fold eagle behind the pyramid. If folded exactly in half the two circles will align on top of each other and touching on both sides. Hold up to an old light bulb to see the face of Baphomet come through the pyramid side. (The eyes will come through in the two circular clouds just below the eye on the pyramid).

All you get this time around is a bunch of smoke, which looks more like someone played around with the MSPaint airbrush tool. Just a bunch of smoke, presumably a result of a fallen building, perhaps after being hit with an airplane. When was this dollar bill made? Well before 9/11. So what is with the Twin Towers, in a mass of smoke?

Contrary to expectations, magnifying images to the pixel level and repeatedly applying the “sharpen” tool are not considered cheating. Notable participants in this quaint activity are Richard Hoagland and the Mars Anomaly Research team. Not only a ‘face’ but whole pyramids and causeways are claimed to be seem – with the ‘face’ being ‘identical’ to that on the Sphinx at Gizeh. Sci-fi pedants have been amused to note that long-running BBC sci-fi show Doctor Who broadcast a serial in 1975 called The Pyramids of Mars, featuring a baddie called Sutekh the Destroyer who was imprisoned in a pyramid. On Mars. “coincidence??” etc. etc.

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.

Drought persists in the Northwest, despite winter rains

Water supplies and drought outlooks are grim in most Western states.

Last Friday, Gov. Jay Inslee declared a drought emergency in three Washington regions. Two days later, it rained across the state. In Seattle and Olympia, it poured enough to break decades-old records, and in Walla Walla County, one of the state’s dry spots, a half an inch fell.

But the weekend’s rain won’t break Washington’s drought. Farmers, ski area operators and water managers are waiting on snows that haven’t come and that likely won’t until next winter. In the Pacific Northwest, as in other mountainous regions of the West, mountain snow normally acts as a reservoir, melting off in the spring and carrying the region through dry summers. But this year, the snow just hasn’t appeared. According to the latest federal data, the Cascades and the Olympics have less than a third of their normal snowpack for this time of year. In some areas, that number is less than ten percent.

California has one year of water left: Hype or reality?
When a NASA scientist speaks in blunt terms about water supply, other scientists take notice.
Jeremy Miller March 18, 2015 Web Exclusive

-California has one year of water left_ Hype or reality_ — High Country News

A Los Angeles Times op-ed penned by NASA senior water scientist Jay Famiglietti last week caused a stir in drought-racked California. In forceful and vivid language, Famiglietti announced that the state has only about a year of water left in its reservoirs, rivers and lakes, as well as in its snowpack and soil.

Based on data acquired from NASA satellites, Famiglietti reported that the persistent drought conditions in the state have led to a 34-million acre-foot deficit in surface water – a volume 50 percent larger than Lake Mead, the country’s largest reservoir. “… (O)ur strategic backup supply, groundwater, is rapidly disappearing,” Famiglietti wrote. “California has no contingency plan for a persistent drought like this one (let alone a 20-plus-year mega-drought), except, apparently, staying in emergency mode and praying for rain.”

When scientists drop the academic posture and speak in blunt terms, other people – in particular, other scientists and water watchers – take notice.

Some took issue with the op-ed’s headline – “California has about one year of water left. Will you ration now?” – saying it was out of sync with the rest of the article. New Mexico journalist and water reporter John Fleck fired back on his blog, calling it “scary as hell, a click-generating machine.”

Fleck also tapped Jay Lund, a professor of environmental and civil engineering at UC Davis (and a noted California water commentator in his own right), for comment. “It’s not the right impression that one more year of this and we’re toast. There’s quite a bit more left in groundwater,” Lund wrote. “A little bit less every year because we’re pumping, trying to make up for the drought.”

But it’s hard to deny that the metrics of California’s ongoing drought demand serious attention. The most recent snow survey at the beginning of March pegged snowpack statewide at less than 20 percent of average. “Nearly a third of our SNOTEL sites in the Cascades and Sierra Nevada are reporting the lowest snowpack ever measured,” said Cara McCarthy, a hydrologist with the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service. “For the first time, some sites were snow-free on March 1. These areas can expect reduced summer streamflow.”

DIY solar tiller
© Dennis Evers
Instead of adding a lot of noise and pollution to your backyard garden with a gas-powered tiller, build a DIY solar-powered version that’s clean and quiet.

One of the surest signs of spring is the Saturday morning roar of two-stroke gas engines coming from lawns, gardens, and backyards, as people start to till their gardens, cut their grass, and trim the weeds. The lightweight small gas engines that power rototillers, lawnmowers, and weedeaters are handy, as they can drastically cut the time needed for yard maintenance, but they also come at a price, both financially and environmentally.

Many of these small internal combustion engines used for yardwork can release as much as 30% of the fuel/oil mixture as unburned pollutants into the atmosphere due to incomplete combustion, which not only wastes fuel and money, but also contributes to air pollution.

“USEPA estimates that a gasoline powered lawn mower emits 11 times the air pollution of a new car for each hour of operation.” – EPA

Solar energy is a great clean power solution for some of these small garden tasks, but there really aren’t a whole lot of options for solar-powered home yard machines available just yet. However, just as the solar lawnmower project demonstrates, building a DIY solar tiller could be an option for the green and clean homeowner, as one resourceful tinkerer illustrates below.

Dennis “Bones” Evers, a Colorado prepper, converted a conventional garden tiller into a completely solar-powered version, using only scrounged parts and taking about 6 hours to complete:

I asked Evers about some of the details of his solar tiller, because the video doesn’t give the specs on the components he used, to which he replied, “This is one of the easier, yet more rewarding projects I have done,” along with some more info on the build:

“It [the solar panel] is a 5 Watt panel, and I use a simple blocking diode (one way) instead of a solar controller. The batteries are two [12V] 5 Ah computer backup batteries that provide enough power to till several beds. I could easily add two more batteries, but as it is it is very easy to use and transport. I salvaged 120 batteries that were perfect and was looking for projects to use them up. One is a four battery micro welder that works fantastic for field repairs.

The motor is a Briggs and Stratton lawn mower starter. I just got in from my garden and it works fantastic. I just leave it out in the garden facing south and use it when I need it. If a person wanted a bigger one, you could easily upgrade with a larger starter from a Ford or Chevy and a full size battery.”

Evers documents his DIY projects at Proficient Prepping, so if you’re looking for some pointers or ideas about building your own home and garden gear, including solar hot water and solar electric systems, or emergency preparedness, head over there and dive in.
