Heart attacks symptoms are different for women. I recently learned this. 

Nobody really knows that sometimes women may exhibit different symptoms from men with the same condition


Shocking that men and women are different.

The Giver

I started reading The Giver for the first time. I don’t know what page or chapter I’m on, don’t care, but I’m close to the beginning and learning about all the jobs assigned to the children when they turn 12. There’s one job, the Speaker, where a voice announces to the entire community of Sameness the rules they’re supposed to follow. The only time the Speaker really announces anything is if someone is fucking up. It’s vague and indirect, sounds just like finger wagging on Twitter. 

Michael Jackson may have a 31-year-old son with a woman named Billie

A DNA test conducted by film company FilmOn.TV and reported by TMZ supposedly found a 99.9% probability that 31-year-old singer Brandon Howard, who now goes by B. Howard, is Michael Jackson’s son. Howard is participating in a documentary for the company and admits to giving them a DNA swab, but says he did not voluntarily submit to a comparative DNA test to determine relation to MJ. The company says it obtained one of Michael’s dental impression from a Beverly Hills dentist, and paid on its own to compare Howard’s DNA to Jackson’s.

The kicker? Howard’s mother is Miki Howard, an ’80s R&B singer who was managed by Joe Jackson. She used to go by the name “Billie.” Brandon was born in 1982, the same year the song “Billie Jean” was recorded. If the DNA test is credible it would mean that one of the most famous lyrics of the ’80s—”the kid is not my son”—was a lie; there was a Billie, there was a kid and he was indeed Michael’s son.

There’s a story here about Aubrey having a stroke when she was 20 and her friends not helping because they thought she was joking but also this picture is pretty great.

Mysterious clown terrifying city — and gaining online fame — with unexpected appearances
A mysterious man calling himself the “Northampton Clown” is freaking out Northampton, England. Dressed much like the clown Pennywise from the Stephen King novel It, the clown is fond of standing creepily and updating his Facebook page, “Spot the Northampton Clown.”
“For those of you with phobias and fears, you don’t have to like and comment on this page. See you around soon,” The Northampton Clown wrote on the page. It’s filled with photos culled from social media, showing the clown lurking in a variety of dark corners around Northampton, just over 100 kilometres northwest of London. (Photo: Facebook)

Look at What I’m Saying | University of Utah News

University of Utah bioengineers discovered our understanding of language may depend more heavily on vision than previously thought: under the right conditions, what you see can override what you hear. These findings suggest artificial hearing devices and speech-recognition software could benefit from a camera, not just a microphone.

Why physicians should care about Amanda Trujillo

For the past month, the case of Amanda Trujillo has resonated deeply among nurses, triggering an avalanche of postings on Facebook, Twitter and in the nursing blogosphere. Trujillo is the Arizona nurse who was fired in April 2011 after providing education and making a hospice care consult request for an end-stage liver disease patient. This patient was slotted for pre-transplant evaluation and had poor understanding of the disease process and treatment options. Trujillo filled in the gaps for this patient. Trujillo then requested, at the patient’s own wish, a hospice team consult, documented her actions appropriately, and left a note (it was night shift) for the primary physician.

These actions — the education and the hospice team consult — drew the wrath of both the primary physician, who demanded her dismissal and her license, and also her nursing director, who told Trujillo she had ”messed up all the doctors’ hard work and planning for the surgery.” The patient-requested hospice care consult was cancelled. Trujillo’s employer subsequently fired her, and reported her to the Arizona State Board of Nursing for exceeding nursing scope of practice, though in fact, nurses previously had ordered a hospice care consult without consequence. In short, many nurses believe Trujillo was fired for educating and advocating for her patient.

This picture is from an article called the “RESCUING HUG”
 The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Apparently each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby’s heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal. I love this, nurses possess an emotional intelligence we instinctively know what’s best for our patients and we will fight for them. AWESOME post!

This person I keep reblogging is the best nursing blog on Tumblr. fyi.
