Avoid the drama and use “regardless” or “irrespective” instead.

Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him (Oh, man, this is so bad, it’s good)…..A super calloused fragile mystic vexed by halitosis.

I lost two followers for this omg

2 Americans Catch Ebola In Liberia, As Nigeria Reports First Case
News about the Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues to go from bad to worse.
Last week a doctor leading the fight against the outbreak got sick in Sierra Leone. Now two American aid workers have tested positive for the virus in Liberia, and the outbreak has likely spread to a fourth country, Nigeria.
The Nigerian government said Friday that a Liberian man died of Ebola at a hospital in Lagos — Africa’s most populous city, with more than 20 million people. Although the World Health Organization hasn’t confirmed the Nigerian case, the hospital has been shut down and patients there quarantined, Reuters reported.
All the while, the total number of cases continues to climb. So far, there have been 1,201 cases, including 672 deaths, WHO said Friday.
The first American to catch Ebola in the outbreak is Dr. Kent Brantly. The 33-year-old family doctor from Fort Worth, Texas, was infected while treating patients in Monrovia, the nonprofit Samaritan’s Purse said Sunday on its website.
Brantly is the medical director at an Ebola treatment center in Liberia’s capital. The clinic, where he is now being treated, is run by Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian aid group based in Boone, N.C. “He [Brantly] is in stable condition, talking with his doctors and working on his computer while receiving care,” the Charlotte Observer reported.

I have been attempting to write a journal article based on the research I conducted in May. Holy heck. It’s incredibly difficult. When you go on and on about how boring it is to read these articles for school, be mindful of the sheer number of hours and love put into them. Lately I’ve been reading…

"Years ago, death was considered a natural part of life and most people died at home, surrounded by families. Today, most people die in hospitals and death is commonly regarded as a medical failure rather than a natural event."

In my last post, I presented the issue of dealing with a surprise patient who was both in arrest and contaminated with gasoline. They are brought into your resuscitation room without warning of the potential hazard. Now that they are here, what do you do?

Thanks for the many online and email…
