3. Tweet of the Moment …

By all accounts, Martin had gotten away. That’s corroborated by Zimmerman’s and Rachel Jeantel’s testimony. Per Zimmerman’s account, Trayvon had run down the path behind the townhomes and was out of sight. Jeantel testified that Trayvon had made it to his father’s backyard – well out of sight from Zimmerman, we now know – when she was on the phone with him that night. If we’re going to have an honest discussion about race, we need to have an honest discussion about why Trayvon Martin chose to go and confront Zimmerman after he had gotten away. I have yet to see one commentator on the subject ask why Martin didn’t call 911. We’re not having an honest discussion about this situation so how can we possibly have an honest dialogue about the broader issue?

And that’s true even if the savings account doesn’t have enough money in it to cover a full degree — or even a semester. A study from Washington University in St. Louis has attributed this effect to aspirations. A kid who grows up knowing that their parents and others expect high education — and who grows up thinking about higher ed as an option for them — is more likely to go.

10. Tweet of the Moment …

I’ve been trying to be good, but OY, this job … it just requires too much mental energy too early in the morning. In fact, that’s our busiest time – from about 9:00 to 2:00, we’re non-stop patients. Then, from 2:00 to 5:00, we’re scrambling to complete everything we need to complete for the patients we helped that day, sending referrals to other doctors, answering voicemails, answering flags from the nurses and trying to precertify tests for patients that are scheduled for that week.

In other words, it’s non-stop activity. And though I’ve tried to hold off on my caffeine intake for later in the morning, I find myself stuttering, stumbling and just having a lot of trouble focusing on the task at hand without it.

So yeah. I’m back up to two cups of coffee per day. And I’m having more caffeine-withdrawal headaches and I’m taking way more migraine medicine that I would like, but sometimes, ya gotta do what ya gotta do to make it through the day, you know?

Do YOU believe everything you hear/read?

I sincerely hope not. Because you’re being lied to every day.

Take everything with a grain of salt – everything.

Find out for yourself if what you hear/read is true.

Separate yourself from the “sheeple.”

Earth Hour ………………….. *snort* HAHAHAHHAHAHA …

How about this – how about retraining yourself to conserve energy every day of the year? I know that Earth Hour is a day to remind people of that fact, but geez louise, people – sit in the dark for an hour?

Consider these …

Light brings safety. There are safer ways to make a statement and raise awareness than to create a controlled time when thieves and rapists know they will be harder to spot.

The energy spent raising awareness about Earth Hour just might cancel out the energy saved that hour.

It is perversely amusing to see thousands of Earth Hour adherents generate illumination during Earth Hour by lighting candles and making bonfires. Isn’t the very premise behind Earth Hour to REDUCE carbon emissions? Where is the logic in eschewing clean-burning electricity – and by the way, 96% of the electricity in the province of Ontario IS clean-generated – in favour of illumination obtained from a power source (i.e., open fire) that generates completely unfiltered CO2 emissions?

Indeed, most of the candles sold in Canada are made from paraffin, a petroleum byproduct. Thus, illuminating one’s house with paraffin candles is equivalent to letting a diesel engine idle.

Oh, and how’s this for an inconvenient goof? Turning off the lights in a skyscraper only to reactivate those lights an hour later actually consumes MORE power than letting those lights remain on for the duration of that hour. Oh sure, it makes for a nifty photo op – but what, pray tell, is the point? Is Earth Hour simply about feel-good optics rather than tangible solutions?

But hey, if participating makes you feel good, knock yourself out.

15. SOC: Nerves of Steel


Karen M
Teaching teenagers to drive requires nerves of steel. Has anyone seen my nerves of steel? I need them back, please.

This is the second time I’ve taught someone how to drive. The first time was my first son, this second time is my second son.

I’m way more nervous with my second son.

Dude, my first born, was, is, a cautious driver. He takes his time. He pays attention to what’s happening around him. He’s probably too cautious, which is a problem by itself, but Jazz, my second son, is reckless, impatient, slams on the breaks, followed by the accelerator and is not detail oriented. In other words, he doesn’t pay attention to the small stuff, or the big stuff, like that cherry red dual-wheel monster truck coming right at us.

One of Jazz’s friends called him up today. He wanted him to come over and hang out for a few hours. Even though I was thrilled that he wanted to get out of the house and hang with an actual human (as opposed to the virtual humans in his computer), it meant that I had to drive him over there.

Or more accurately, that he had to drive himself over there with me hanging on for dear life.

It’s not that he’s a BAD driver, per se, he’s just a NEW driver.

He backed out of the driveway for the first time today. Reverse is always the most challenging; it’s also the most nerve wracking. The car feels different in reverse, it handles different in reverse and it’s much harder to anticipate what could go wrong in reverse.

The biggest lesson I taught Jazz today was that it’s not always necessary to press on the accelerator. There are times that a nice, SLOW

17. Four Days Off? Whatever Shall I Do?!


Karen M
Guys get to sleep in. Not me! I'm up and getting ready for work. Actually, I'm up, I'm procrastinating on the getting ready part.

Karen M
Last day of work for four days. I'm having a hard time finding the motivation to actually GO to work. Anyone else off the next four days?
