    Today, I had 2 student nurses during my workday in the ER that I am assigned to for 6 weeks. The ER had a total of 6 of them from he local U. In my job description is education. I relish that role. some days the cases really get to impact the less experienced RNs and the students. It is, in fact, the most enjoyable part of my job.

    So, today, a person showed up dizzy and fatigued without chest pain but did not ‘feel right’ in the chest. I had my students run an EKG and place the patient on the monitor. I purposely did not allow them to see the EKG read but instead made a non-read copy and asked them to figure out what was going on with this patient’s heart using calipers and their skills.

    No one got it.

    Their instructor is an ancient, bitter hag who hasn’t worked a floor in 25 years…a professional non-RN who teaches yet calls herself a nurse.

    Since my students couldn’t do the measurement of the EKG properly to figure out the arrhythmia, I went unorthodox. I made redacted unread copies of the EKG for all of the students and collected them up in front of the big screen TV and had them watch this:

    Yep, Wenckebach type II.

    Then I showed them how to mark up the EKG with calipers so that each could have a copy of the measured arrhythmia.

    Their instructor was flabbergasted, angry, and wanted my head, how dare I use a fun video to educate!…until cardiology showed up and stated that that video is hysterical, accurate, and used in medical schools everywhere.

    Some assholes in my field enjoy giving pain and being bitches. It’s sad and counter-productive.

      good morning! So, CW, while you were playing this video was your poor patient just lying there in the ER wondering where the heck everybody went to?

      Speaking of sneaky cardio events, one of my besties had a heart attack last week. Complete blockage of the anterior descending aorta. They reamed her out and she’s good to go (they say). This is the one, I believe, they call The Widowmaker.

      Here’s the thing. For the prior weeks, she’d been having attacks, called the ambulance, and the EKG popped up ‘normal’. Apparently, she’d been throwing little flecks of the stuff off and then it would clear just enough for blood to flow. Until the big one hit.

      As for the hag nurse – it’s a ‘known’ phenom for sociopaths to go into professions that allow them to accrue authority so they can abuse people. You see them in legal, law enforcement, clergy and – medicine. Among other professions, but those seem to be the biggies.

      In other news – Karl Lagerfeld has died. He really was the last of the greats, there is no other titan on scene, they’re all midgets.

      And Bernie has formally announced. Surprising no one, just eliciting groans of “Not THIS again!”. Hubby said he’s going on a Magical Mystery tour with AOC to drum up crowds. That should be a circus.

      JUSSIE SMOLLETT ‘EMPIRE’ ROLE SLASHED… In Wake of ‘Attack’ Scandal

      Jussie Smollett’s “Empire” screen time is getting slashed in the wake of a growing sentiment that he staged the so-called “attack.”

      Production sources tell TMZ … Jussie was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode — which is being shot now — but, 5 of his scenes have been cut, and his musical number has been 86’d.

      As for the remaining 4 scenes … we’re told he’s no longer the focus. The scene features an ensemble, meaning he’s flanked by a number of cast members.

      With his duties pared down, Jussie will be spending way less time on set. Instead of working every day this week, we’re told Jussie’s working Friday and possibly Thursday, and he won’t be rehearsing.

      Listening to XM – Breitbart Radio in my travels on Saturday morning, I heard an interesting analysis (and unfortunately I started listening in the middle) that due to some LEGAL shuffling that President Trump can already do with funds that are available to him without Congressional approval (and he cited the US Code sections that covered it), he had almost enough to build the Wall before he even had to dip into the funds available to him from the Emergency Declaration. So he can go right on building the Wall while Congress looks like idiots going to through the Courts.

      And Ann Effing Coulter can effing BITE me. I’m fed up with that Grandstanding Giraffe.

      (She lost her book selling market embracing Christie so now she’s targeting the Never Trumpers. She’s gonna look like an asshole when Trump unveils the extent of Wall completion right before the 2020 general election.

      Dear Bernie – I hate to break it to you. I’m sure you’ll be campaigning with Donkey Snout in tow. Good luck. But the Democrats are going to rig those primaries for either Joe Biden or – more likely – Kamala Harris. And she’ll be getting the Super Delegates, too.

      Did any of you see the latest fake story about “Conservative OUTRAGE”? Now apparently we’re all hot and bothered because Malia Obama was photographed drinking wine a few months before her 21st birthday. Apparently we’re all a bunch of hypocrites because we didn’t care about Kavanaugh drinking beer.

      This reminds me of that supposed OUTRAGE by conservatives about a Cheerios commercial that featured a bi-racial couple. The mom tells the litter girl that Cheerios is good for heart health and she goes and pours them all over her Daddy, who is taking a nap. Apparently we conservatives were all INCENSED over this commercial and immediately contacted General Mills to voice our displeasure.

      Except frankly I didn’t even notice that the couple was bi-racial until it was pointed out to me. I just thought that poor man waking up, covered with breakfast cereal and saying “HONEY????” was hilarious. No one complained. No one gave a crap. But you know – conservatives focus on RACE! Except….not.

      So now they did this again with Malia. Frankly, I’m not on the interwebz much on the weekend, but I don’t even recall seeing this photo on Twitter or Twitchy until the liberal media started telling me I was angry about it. Anyone else. Personally, I think they just wanted to have another opportunity to rag on Brett Kavanaugh and call him a drunken rapist one more time.

      Ok, my sons history teacher has just proven she’s a moron in addition to a lunatic.

      I thought the new assignment was actually decent until I finished reading it. She wants the kids to talk about American Imperialism and uses Kiplings “White Man’s Burden” to spark the discussion. But, then talks about how the poem was Kiplings Justification for American Imperialism.

      How the hell can you be a history teacher if you don’t know that Kipling was English?

      I think she’s right

      “The White Man’s Burden”: Kipling’s Hymn to U.S. Imperialism
      In February 1899, British novelist and poet Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem entitled “The White Man’s Burden: The United States and The Philippine Islands.” In this poem, Kipling urged the U.S. to take up the “burden” of empire, as had Britain and other European nations. Published in the February, 1899 issue of McClure’s Magazine, the poem coincided with the beginning of the Philippine-American War and U.S. Senate ratification of the treaty that placed Puerto Rico, Guam, Cuba, and the Philippines under American control. Theodore Roosevelt, soon to become vice-president and then president, copied the poem and sent it to his friend, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, commenting that it was “rather poor poetry, but good sense from the expansion point of view.” Not everyone was as favorably impressed as Roosevelt. The racialized notion of the “White Man’s burden” became a euphemism for imperialism, and many anti-imperialists couched their opposition in reaction to the phrase.

      Ok, I’ll give her points. I just went off of the fact Kipling was English and had written mostly about English expansionism. Didn’t realize that the poem was about US expansion into the Philippines.

      It’s just that this idiot is wrong on so many things I was expecting this to be wrong too.

      ok, this is very good, from the Kipling Society, the complete background and context

      http://www.kiplingsociety.co.uk/rg_burden1.htm

      As Kipling represents it, however, the call of Empire is a humanitarian one. (We might bear in mind the fact that in the US the phrase ‘white man’ was current as a term of commendation, meaning straight or decent. Kipling himself made use of it in this sense in the letter of 20 June 1900 to John St Loe Strachey.
      .
      .
      The poem is also a warning. As a man who had worked shoulder to shoulder with those upholding the Raj for seven years in India, Kipling was entitled to speak with authority of the costs involved – the dangers of sickness and the risk of death by violence – in undertaking such a task. He had seen how young men sent out from India died in droves ‘at the regulation age of 22 or thereabouts.’
      .
      .

      On its original publication the poem bore the heading ‘An Address to the United States’.

      This is fascinating.

      BERLIN — Fighter jets and helicopters that don’t fly. Ships and submarines that can’t sail. Severe shortages of everything from ammunition to underwear.

      If it sounds like an exaggeration to compare Germany’s Bundeswehr to “The Gang that Couldn’t Shoot Straight,” look no further than the army’s standard-issue assault rifle, Heckler & Koch’s G36. The government decided to scrap the weapon after discovering that the gun misses its target if it’s too hot.

      “There is neither enough personnel nor materiel, and often one confronts shortage upon shortage,” Hans-Peter Bartels, a Social Democrat MP charged with monitoring the Bundeswehr for parliament, concluded in a report published at the end of January. “The troops are far from being fully-equipped.”

      Once one of the fiercest (and most brutal) fighting forces on earth, today’s German army increasingly looks more like a volunteer fire department — last month, mountain troops were dispatched to shovel snow from roofs in Bavaria — than a modern military machine.

      On a recent trip to Lithuania, where about 450 German soldiers are stationed as part of a NATO mission to deter Russian aggression, U.S. officials were dismayed to discover Bundeswehr personnel communicating on unsecure mobile phones due to a shortage of secure radio equipment.

      oh, before I forget. I’ve starting seeing stories that Gen. Flynn wanted to give nuclear power plants to Saudi Arabia and somehow he was going to do this on his own against admin positions and it was all hush hush.

      I don’t know whether Flynn supported giving nuclear power to Saudi Arabia or not. But it is not a secret that it’s certainly been part of their long range plan

      This is from Dec 2017

      Saudi Arabia aims to start talks with Washington within weeks on an agreement to allow US firms to participate in its nascent civilian nuclear energy programme, with the first tender expected in 2018, the kingdom’s energy minister said on Wednesday.

      Saudi Arabia is interested in reaching a civilian nuclear cooperation agreement with Washington, and Riyadh has invited US firms to take part in developing the kingdom’s first atomic energy programme.

      The world’s top oil exporter wants nuclear power to diversify its energy supply mix, enabling it to export more crude rather than burning it to generate electricity.

      https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/saudi-arabia-looking-start-nuclear-pact-talks-us-weeks

      Why this sudden conflation of Flynn as a nefarious player in something that has been a very public effort is suspicious. Keep a very jaundiced eye out.

      Today I received a telephone call from Txxxx informing me that I would not be getting a pay check on Friday.

      Why am I not going to be paid what Axxxxx Cxxxxx contractually owes me?

      Do you expect me to continue to work at Axxxxxx Cxxxxx without any remuneration in the short term, and no prospect of ever recovering the lost wages?

      Either close the company down so we can then file unemployment and find new jobs, or pay us what you legally and contractually owe us.

      Rxxxxxx, you have four very loyal employees that has done their best to keep Axxxxx Cxxxxx running as efficiently as we can. And we are all working as a team, we know if any one of the four of us quits there is no longer an Axxxx. We stuck together, as team Axxxxx.

      Then you kicked us in the face by not paying us..

      It is your choice Rxxxxxx, you continue to pay us and we will continue to work for you. You stop paying our wages then your Axxxxx dies because we have to eat, pay rent and survive.

      This is your decision, close Axxxx down so we can be free to find other employment or pay us what you owe us.

      Or, see us in court.

      This is long and a little technical but WORTH. IT.

      Remember when that story came out about AOC putting her boyfriend on staff except he wasn’t really? The reporter was Luke Thompson, who was promptly suspended by twitter after AOC’s chief of staff, Chakribarti, went on the warpath (remember, he’s the guy who wears a t-shirt with the Indian Nazi photo on it). Well, Thompson got out of twitter prison and is keeping up the good work.

      Chakribarti has this campaign funding org that funded AOC’s campaign and also managed to pay Riley Roberts a few grand while they were at it.

      Here’s a quick summary:

      It looks to me like Chakrabarti was effectively reimbursing AOC for a third of her expenses with Brand New Congress LLC, perhaps so that she would stay in the race despite her mounting debt.

      The shadiness of the whole business may also explain why Roberts lists his residence as Arizona for the expenditure, rather than New York. Roberts is from Arizona, but was living in New York with AOC. His other contributions to her campaign, both cash and in-kind, list New York as his residence.

      Regardless of whether or not Roberts was officially AOC’s spouse at that time, it seems probable Chakrabarti was reimbursing her for her campaign expenses off-books. Brand New Congress PAC simply served as a pass-through to do so.

      When AOC won, she then hired Chakrabarti, her strategist/patron, as her Chief of Staff. Taking money from a rich guy, trying to hide it by passing it
      through a PAC, and then giving her benefactor a government job.

      That’s definitely unethical and potentially illegal. Chakrabarti may have made an illegal campaign contribution in excess of federal limits. Regardless, it raises questions about Chakrabarti’s hiring as AOC’s Chief of Staff after her election. Maybe add that to your next lightning round, Congresswoman.

      Finally, all of the above is based on public information. It took me a couple of hours to pull it all together and write it up. I suppose this could be called muckraking, but it’s really just minimal reporting that nobody in the press decided to do. I can’t emphasize enough how easy it was to find all of this information. It’s literally just sitting there. But no reporter bothered to read it.

      Democracy dies in darkness? Nah. Reporters are just lazy.

      Stalled relief supplies for Venezuela at the Colombian border are a stark illustration of Trump’s crudely transactional approach to aid
      .
      .
      His chief motivation appears to be to rally his far-right base by proclaiming himself a warrior against ‘socialism’ – an evil he identifies not only with the radical policies of Hugo Chávez, Maduro’s predecessor and mentor, but also in the platforms of some Democratic presidential hopefuls.”

      @ eaglesoars:

      The Indiana Supreme Court decision is reversed under the 8th Amendment’s excessive fines clause. Essentially, the state cannot confiscate a $42,000 car for a crime that carries a maximum $10,000 fine. Because the 14th Amendment essentially linked the Bill of Rights to all the states in terms of rights applicable under the law; therefore, the excessive fine provisions as promulgated in the 8th amendment are applicable to Indiana as well vis-a-vis the excessive fines it sought to impose.

      You had it right.

      the walkaway guy won’t be running against her. He’ll be running against Chakrabarti. Who I am pretty sure is a very smart guy. He’s the puppeteer.

      AOC is not dumb, she’s shrewd. She’s a shyster. But she doesn’t have the chops to pull off what Chakrabarti is doing.

      She’s put out some tweets addressing the idea that she’s dumb and didn’t understand the financial structure of the Amazon deal. She cited concerns about rent increases, etc., which were spot on. And capital grants, etc. She had good points on all of them.

      The problem is that wasn’t part of her argument at the time, none of that came until later. Which says to me she was briefed on those points AFTER it hit the fan, because they were really populist, worker-on-the-street stories. An example, which I read independently, is that landlords were handing out 2 year leases and the 2nd year the rent just skyrocketed, – like 800% – expecting the real estate market to take off. There were plenty of examples of the not-so-good consequences of the deal that wore the faces of real people that – if she were smart – she would have pulled out of the bag.

      But – it’s not her district, is it?


    75. 77 | February 20, 2019 11:53 am

      @ eaglesoars:

      Yeah, she’s not dumb, but she was in good company with that ignorant “now we can spend this money on other stuff.”

      What the landlords were doing reminds me of the gouging of Silicon Valley back in the 90’s during the .com boom. One bedroom bungalows were selling for $1 million (try refinancing THAT after the housing bust!) and apartments were scarce. Landlords got greedy down in Santa Clara County and workers were PISSED.

      So they found a solution. Workers moved UP the Peninsula to San Mateo County, were rents were plentiful and cheaper, and even San Francisco (for the latter, there was incredible gentrification of dilapidated neighborhoods). The Silicon Valley Tech companies then engaged a free bus service to pick up their employees and drive them to Cupertino. As a result the rents went down in San Jose, but the workers didn’t come back. They rather enjoyed the bus ride and the car pool lane.

      And don’t get me wrong. If you own property, you should be allowed to rent it out at what you think the market will bear. But we had the same problem in San Francisco years ago that necessitated passing rent control laws. And it really was just ONE landlord that was pulling this crap – his name was Angelo Sangiacomo and he owned several apartment buildings. But he gouged his tenants and enough of them complained.

      Horizontal Harris got called out on her calling this a modern-day lynching on Twitter. She was trying to deny she ever sent out a tweet that said that. Fortunately, we have screen shots.

      class 4 felony 1-4 years, 1st offense, he’ll get probation, maybe a fine. His career is over.

      BUT

      We haven’t heard from the Feds yet on those letters, have we? Don’t fuck with the USPS, it irritates them.

      You might appreciate this. It’s a parody account featured at Twitchy. How Smollett will help Non-Victims of Attacks everywhere…..

      I see that we are talking about the new developments in the Jussie Smollett fiaso.
      I was sitting in a hotel room watching The Five on FNC on this topic.
      Juan did not disappoint, seeing no motive , so Jussie must be mental and just needs our understanding.
      He then of course the went to an increase in hate crimes in the Age of Trump.

      I saw it Yawn just lies. Sometimes I wish Kim Guilfoyle was still on. She’d get so pissed off at him I was pretty sure she was going to punch his lights out on set. But she never let him get away with anything and being the prosecutor she was, she exposed every lie

      I wish we could do this. There’s a guy who writes for the NYT by the name of Kirkpatrick. He’s a Muslim Brotherhood stooge if ever there was one. For some reason, he landed his sorry ass in Cairo yesterday (day before?) Where it was promptly thrown in jail w/no food or water for a day, then frogmarched to a plane and kicked out of the country. I don’t know where he is now. Syria or Turkey probably but I’m sure we’ll be hearing how it’s Trump’s fault.

      There’s someone else you need to know about. Karen Attiah. She’s the foreign desk editor of WaPo. She’s a Qatari stooge. She is the one promoting the idea that Khashoggi was a ‘journalist’ and not an agent of Qatar. She’s the one who published an editorial by Mohammed al Houthi, the leader of the Houthi rebels in Yemen. Except the man is illiterate and brain damaged by addiction to their version of khat. She actually tweeted that Al Jazeera was her hero (sic). She is a proxy in the war between KSA and Qatar/Iran and I suspect behind the recent stories about KSA and nuclear power, Trump admin, etc.

      just sayin

      She had no patience for Juan moaning and saying gee a lot. Seriously, he is not smart enough to be on.

      AOC has responded to Luke Thompson’s piece. She points to one Alex Kotch who tries to debunk Thompson. But he doesn’t. It’s all an ad hominem argument against Thompson, not a refutation of his points.

      If you need something new to listen to while you’re there, try this:

      Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones

      I downloaded it yesterday. It’s surprisingly good.

      42 degrees here, and raining like crazy… If it gets as cold as it was this morning, it’ll start snowing here pretty soon… Somebody remind me that I live in Sunny Southern California… (it was 29 degrees this morning when I left for work)

      It got down to 28 here in Tucson this morning. That’s cold, especially for this time of year. No rain though, just clear skies so all the heat can seep into space.

      aint no thang. i have a few Arrogant Bastard Ales left, a few shots of tequila and a bunch of good cigars. i’m gonna go out and sit on the tailgate of the benz and imbibe, have a cigar, listen to lobo’s new tunes, and then go to bed and go home in the morning.

      this is a safety call. it’s not worth a wreck or worse to get home.

      get home-itis is real and must be guarded against.

      The drummer in that video is her older brother, Luke Mitchell. He normally fronts his own band, The High Divers. On that tour, the two bands were together, so I guess they cut costs by doing a bit of crossover in personnel. At the end of the set, they got everyone onstage together for a cover of Rockin’ In the Free World.
