En Community Medical Centers se estan llevando acabo entrenamientos continuos del personal médico por si se llega a identificar un caso del ébola.

This is what ticked me off. Marketers are reviving the icon of Speedy Alka-Seltzer, the old water-bubbling stomach tonic made famous decades ago with such slogans as " Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh, what a relief it is ... I can't believe I ate the whole things ... Try it, you'll like it."

My husband came home one day (a couple of years ago) after picking up a few items at a local home improvement warehouse store. He shared with me that he was roaming around the store looking for the things on his list and while he was loading some merchandise onto his cart, a man approached him and without even asking if my husband worked there, just began rattling off a list of questions like: "where would the needle-nosed pliers be", and such.

Arrived a bit early for a "UC Day" dinner at Sacramento's Sheraton Grand Hotel. Who plopped down in an adjacent seat in the lobby? Mr. UC himself, president Robert C. Dynes.


I was there to show solidarity for UC Merced grads -- yes there are UC Merced alums out there, and they sell the school well. Moreso, I was there to keep hope alive for a UC medical school in the Valley.

Well, traditional wisdom and logic would lead us to reason that daylight-saving time, which begins March 9th, does reduce energy consumption. But an exceptional situation in Indiana provides evidence challenging that view....."springing forward" may actually cause an increased use of energy!

Been to Disneyland. Once. Maybe go again, if some future grandkid insists.


Been to hospitals (as patient, visitor, employee) enough times to be occasionally surprised, regularly dismayed, sometimes angered, infrequently completely satisfied and always wanting to improve the experience.


Now the Army is trying an infusion of the Disney culture. They paid Disney $800,000 to dialyze the crappy atmosphere at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where the media showcased injured vets living in squalor with care lost in an arsenal of hurry-up-and-wait, shut-up-your-face.
