Chaos in Ferguson. Sunday night, part 4

[part 1] [part 2] [part 3

Reminder that:

- no, this isn’t over;
- no, these aren’t from earlier in the week;
- no, everything isn’t alright now;
- no, the police haven’t stopped brutalizing peaceful protesters;
- no, police haven’t intervened to stop the looting;
- no, police haven’t responded to emergency 911 calls for people injured by rubber bullets or children hit by cars;
- no, michael brown’s shooter still has not faced any consequences for murdering an unarmed teenager 9 days ago

It relieves me that the mcdonalds employees were giving out the milk, not getting “looted” as i heard earlier

“Polinicemos Chile” esta primavera

Vía El Ciudadano

ONG Plan Bee invita a todos los chilenos a crear una primavera llena de alimento para las abejas y miles de otros insectos que se encuentran en peligro de extinción.

Con el fin de ayudar a la biodiversidad en peligro de extinción, ONG Plan Bee lanza la campaña “Polinicemos Chile”, para incentivar a plantar flores que alimentan a las abejas y fomentar así la polinización esta primavera.

Más del 70% del alimento que consumimos depende directamente del trabajo de polinización. Sin abejas, no sólo desaparecerán las frutas, verduras, lácteos y carnes, sino que tampoco tendremos medicamentos ni posibilidades de vida.

En Chile, las abejas mueren a una tasa fija del 8% anual en estos últimos 4 años, debido a factores como la falta de alimento, sequía, pesticidas, antenas de celular, deforestación, transgénicos y la falta de conciencia ser humano.

Ahora existe una posibilidad de ayudarlas con alimento. Por eso, algunas de las plantas recomedadas son: lavanda, romero, orégano, menta, manzanilla, albahaca, caléndula, rosas, póleo, frutilla, limón y tomate. También se aconseja mantener un recipiente de agua fresca cerca de las plantas para que las abejas puedan hidratarse.

Antonio Bogdan, director de Plan Bee, invita a todos los chilenos a crear una primavera inolvidable para las abejas y para todos: “Podemos crear fuentes de vida y alimento para los polinizadores, evitando así largos viajes para nuestras queridas abejas, y con esto vamos creando una conciencia a nivel país. Todos podemos aportar algo a la vida y con ello ayudarnos a nosotros mismos. El momento es ahora”.

Asimismo, Paula Pedreros, agrónoma especialista de Plan Bee, señala que “con pequeñas acciones como plantar flores podemos ayudar mucho, ya que las abejas necesitan recolectar polen para producir su alimento y mantener la cadena de vida que nos sostiene a todos”.

Con motivo de la Campaña, el equipo de Plan Bee estará desarrollando diferentes actividades en las zonas V, VI, VII, IX y RM para continuar con el trabajo de colmenas urbanas y ampliación de zonas de conservación, entre otros.

Para mayor información, ingresar a www.ongplanbee.com, facebook o escribir directamente a ongplanbee@ongplanbee.com. Es el momento de actuar y proteger la biodiversidad para que fururas generaciones tengan una posibilidad de vivir en este Planeta. Necesitamos ser más.

Anecdotes by medical practitioners

"A woman came in for a baby check with her 6-month-old and she had what looked like chocolate milk in the baby’s bottle. So he started explaining to her as kindly as he could that she shouldn’t be giving her baby chocolate milk. At which point she interrupts him and says, ‘Oh that isn’t chocolate milk. It’s coffee! He just loves it!”

"I had a patient come in for an STD check. She was very upset and continued to tell me that she only had one partner. Progressing through my assessment, she further divulged that even if he was sleeping with other people it shouldn’t matter ‘because he uses a condom every time and he makes sure to wash it thoroughly after every use’.”

"Had a lady who measured her baby’s temperature by pre-heating the oven and putting one hand in front of it while the other hand was on the baby’s forehead. She told the nurse her baby’s fever was about 250 degrees.”

"Lady has to have foot amputated and is given waiver forms to sign pre-op. Buddy asks if she needs time to think about it. She’s very nonchalant and doesn’t seem to care much what they do. He gets suspicious and probes a bit as to why she’s not more concerned. She says she gets that they have to operate and it’s OK because the foot will grow back.”

"I had a couple who had been trying to conceive for over two years. I asked all the usual questions, how often do you have sex, any previous pregnancy, etc etc. Something seemed off to me during the consult, so I continued to ask questions. Finally I asked if he ejaculated while inserted into the vagina. Both parties looked confused.Turns out the couple was not having insertional sex at all. I had to awkwardly explain to them how insertional sex works. Diagrams were required.”

"Patient comes in, she’s upset. She’s pregnant, and she doesn’t understand why. She’s on the pill. Upon talking to her at great length, I find out that she only takes the pills on the days that she is sexually active – no other time.”

"Patient comes in with her bf. They are indignant, as if somehow I could’ve prevented [the pregnancy]. The problem? Well, the pills were bothering the girl’s stomach, so, being a gallant bf, he decided to start taking them instead.”

“I was explaining the treatment to the husband of a patient about to be discharged. He kept nodding and agreeing with me, but I knew it was flying over his head. Turned out a fundamental problem was that I was describing the drugs as ‘tablets’ and he had no clue what those were.”
