    Again brevity was not my friend. I'm wondering if there are any serious alternatives to either candidate, certainly not hearing about any except perhaps Niki Haley?...

    Should have been m ore specific -- I was referencing his support of Israel, which as far as I can tell is likely to lose him the youth vote. Other than that he seems to be doing a reasonable job....
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    I, and I suspect much of the world, am hoping that enough Americans who vote realise that even though Biden is currently doing entirely the wrong thing he is STILL much better than the apparent alternative. I am however wondering...
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    As a health professional I would just like to say -- one day of high carb is not going to hurt your body but will heal your spirit....

    Oh that is very cool!...
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    Yes down here we also have the Yellow Wattle bird -- guess why. I do have to point out though that when I was in the States once I asked a friend of mine "What's the red winged black bird...

    Huh, I've always known them as the world's largest kingfisher, but then I'm a weirdo. I remember the first time I saw one on the Domain in Sydney -- and realised just how big they are! Our local ones seem...
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    It's an uncommon term -- hell until I joined the professional organisation I'd never heard it and I was doing it. People get "health with computers" readily, "informatics" gets you a confused look....
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    Here, in the '80's, there was push to get nursing into colleges and then universities instead of training in hospitals. I was finishing my training as the first graduates started coming out, and hospitals discovered they were employing nurses who...
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    And what's funnier, at least in my part of the world, you can tell a doctor has a Doctorate because they get called Mr. instead of Dr. I remember when I first returned to Australia from NZ seeing a sign...
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    Yes, we're very short of Health Informaticians and HIMS but last time I looked there were very few courses being offered in HI. Sadly it appears all the effort that HISA, and now the AIDH, put into getting people to...

    Finding the area that you enjoy is what makes nursing a more fun game, and there are so many to choose from fortunately. Doctors are better at some things but nurses are better for others -- we even have NP...

    Greg, once again I am not Damian. I would appreciate it if you could get my name right when replying to my posts....
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    No, I did the only remote HI course available at the time and got a Grad.Dip.eHealth(HI) before CHIA was a thing. I've looked at the CHIA but as I'm hoping to retire soon I figure what I have is enough....

    Oh and axe grinding is really hard work, not maintaining the rage......
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    We need so many more Nurse Practitioners! When I was working in Emergency at RPA we had a consultant who used to tell the new doctors: "Listen to the nurses! They spend much more time with the patients than you...
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    Yes, I have a nursing non-degree myself, and a couple of the people I trained with ended up as lawyers. I actually had a potential employer tell me I wasn't a real nurse as I didn't have a degree, and...
  • Commented on We're sorry we created the Torment Nexus
    "Oz & NZ do law and medicine as undergrade degrees," You can actually do Medicine as undergrad or postgrad. I once worked with a GP who started out as a meteorologist....
  • Commented on I should blog more, but ...
    While Damian and I are on the same side of the planet we are in fact different people :-) 7.5kg is about average for a Coon actually; they also have a life expectancy of 12-15 years and mine's just hit...
  • Commented on I should blog more, but ...
    Hell, in his prime my cat weighed 7.5kg. He's now a much older Maine Coon but still......

    The attacks of September 11 started just as I was about to go to bed in Sydney, and at the time I was active on a chat board on eBay for book sellers. I spent the next few hours garnering...

    Wow, I'm not even close to optimistic enough that it would happen to think that far ahead, but hell yes please!...
  • Commented on I should blog more, but ...
    I would be interested in know how one goes about establishing "good relations" with a country which has been grinding you under foot for decades. As Damian said -- been there, done that, no T shirt....

    Hamas may or may not be worse than the people with all the power over Gaza, who have been torturing the Gazans for decades, but look at why they're doing what they're doing. As I asked in my previous post...

    One wonders how much nicer the world might be if all US companies manufacturing weapons stopped doing that. I know there are others who would happily step in but one still wonders......
  • Commented on I should blog more, but ...
    I agree as well but -- and this is a serious question -- what options did the people in Gaza have left? As I understand the situation they can't leave, so they could sit patiently and wait for more attacks...

    Don't forget it's not that long ago that a certain arsehole PM said that living in remote communities was "a lifestyle choice." For people who literally die from homesickness, as do the San....

    Sadly surprising no one at all. I'm sort of pleased though that the whole of the bottom of Tasmania voted yes....

    Actually I meant the Wombles, although now I have an earworm......

    I haven't thought about them for a long time, thanks!...
