    At 0530 Eastern time Sunday morning, the final for the ICC World Cup starts. It’s New Zealand v England from Lord’s Cricket Ground in London.

    England was expected to be there probably against India…well, no one told New Zealand, i guess. NZ hasn’t played good cricket this series, at least not to what they are capable of playing, yet, they manged to get into the final. They will have to be at the top of their game to compete with England.

    Allergies, Mental Health, and an Open

    I have noticed something over the years, there seems to be a strong correlation between large numbers of allergies and the likelihood that the patient has some mental health issues. This info is revealed during the triage process…I keep seeing it over and over again. Long list of allergies to meds and such, mental health issues and psych meds almost always are there too.

    Now I read this.

    Interesting, I may have to do more research…maybe a chart audit for some raw data…

    Photographer Fattens FLOTUS for Fourth

    That photo by Carlos Barrias [Reuters] of President and First Lady Trump looked a bit odd to me, because within seconds of that photo, Melania Trump dropped 30 pounds.

    Reuters has a history of photojournalistic malfeasance.

    Carlos Barrias’ Reuters bio includes this gem:

    “I was very moved after covering the earthquake in Haiti. I was one of the first journalists from Reuters to arrive, and I was there for about 45 days. It was long and tough. You can see human beings at their most basic instinct for survival.

    It was a very weird feeling in Haiti because I know I was there doing my job, and I would like to feel that our job means something for people, but at the same time I felt powerless. What do you say when a kid comes to you and asks you for water and food, and you have nothing but a camera? I couldn’t answer that question, and I felt frustrated that I couldn’t do anything.”

    [Confidential to @ReutersBarria: I don’t know you, never met you, but you’re full of sanctimonious crap. You were in Haiti for 45 days without food or water? Sure you were. Please click on this. The first 50 seconds are just for you.]
