    Monday February 18 2019

    Good morning, Joe. Hope the job search is all you want it to be. Crappy, crappy, shift last night. We were short-staffed, as usual. My patient load was 9 patients, plus 3 assessments for an LPN. At 0100, I lost two patients, as a nurse came in at 0100, but all of the hard work was done at that point. Only morning med pass left to do. Three patients with Foley's, two to in and out cath, and two with IV antibiotics. One in and out cath requires a coude tip fr 10. So it takes 20 minutes to drain out 800 no of urine. One patient has explosive, bowel medication induced diarrhea at 2000. The tech and I spent 45 minutes in his room getting that situation settled. I finished med pass at 2300. I still had dressing changes to do. It was horrible!!!!!!!!!!!! Just ate breakfast. Time for sleep. I am exhausted. The day shift nursej handed off to this morning had these patients all weekend, too. She said she dreaded coming in this morning. And she is a 23-year-old new grad. Bedside nursing sucks.

    Media behaving badly

    Far from behaving badly, the NY Times actually has a news story, which contains a timeline of events, and twists and turns in the actor's accusations.

    By the way, for those interested, the Washington Post addresses this topic, in The Trail. They acknowledge that conservatives are losing their heads over the Senator visiting a store, that was founded by a woman, who lifted herself out of poverty. Of course, Senator Harris is visiting SC, as she is on the campaign trail. As evidenced by conservative, media bashing posters to this thread, the right is losing their collective minds. But the Trail, will give you a more nuanced perspective on the story, including background info on that store owner.

    That menu was amazing, BC. I like your fiancee. He seems to enjoy food, and knows how to pick a good restaurant!
  5. I think CA, and Seattle have witnessed first hand, exactly what can happen to a community when the poor and middle class, are pushed out by the likes of Google, Facebook and Amazon. Again, I think AOC did exactly what her constituents voted her into office to do: protect their interests. Great win for her, and them.

    I am so proud of American media! How else would we know about possible collusion between a police department in OR, and right-wing extremists? Yes, a local newspaper brought to light, text messages exchanged between a police lieutenant, and a hate group, planning a protest. Read about it in the NY Times: An Exchange Of Text Messages Between Police In Portland, And A Right-Wing Organizer Has Drawn Scrunity Isn't law enforcement charged with protecting the public at large, and not just certain segments of the population? Thank goodness the media is here to shine a light on all kinds of abuses of power. No wonder Trump fears a free press.

    Hello all. What did eat, BC?!!!!! Was the restaurant in Providence or Boston? Glad your friend is recovering from the bike accident, Dianah. Glad Nana's birthday was fun, Spidey. Our cars were encased in ice this morning, leaving work. My car defrosted while I fed the parking lot cats. One more night!!!!!!!!!! Drizzly rain here today. Tonight's treat is a veggie tray. Last week, I brought chocolate macaroons. They were really good! Just looking forward to getting this shift over with. Hope all are having a good day.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    It seems as though the Fox talking head employed this nanny for 10 years, and paid her in CASH. Yet, was shocked, shocked, to learn no taxes had been paid on those monies. Wow. There are a whole string of lies that we are expected to believe.

    More of his same old garage. We all know why he says it. We all know why he will continue to say it. He needs the base to believe it, and from what I have read on these threads, and read in the media, they do believe him.

    I suspect you will soon apply your logic to your friends on this thread who have continued to post about the high speed rail plan in CA. Ask them for an explanation.

    Media behaving badly

    Oh, please. Yes, we all get your intention. Too bad it falls flat. I have already stated that I kept professional boundaries as a reporter. But I am human, and did attend Lynn Whiting's crawfish boil on the backside of Churchill Downs. Lynn was a former KY Derby winning trainer, and held an annual crawfish boil, on Oaks Day, for friends on the racetrack. Mr. Whiting, even peeled some crawfish for me! Guess what? He still would have gotten fair, unbiased coverage for me. No special favors. Just like as a nurse. I may enjoy having a particular patient, but they get no special perks, like extra narcotics. Your continued attempts to disparage the media, like DJT, continue to be a show of ignorance.

    Completely ridiculous. A crime was proposed to have happened. It gets reported on. If the crime appears to be a hoax, guess what? That gets reported on too. Just like the case of Susan Smith, in SC.

    I agree with you. This not an example of the media behaving badly, any more than the Susan Smith case, in SC, all those years ago, was an example of the media behaving badly Remember when she claimed her children had been kidnapped by Black men, when in reality she killed those kids herself? Of course, some people are going to believe what Trump tells them regarding the media. No surprise there.

    You are funny, dude. You troll all the time! You seriously can't connect the dots between the cozy relationship between Trump and Fox, and the talking heads, getting jobs at the WH, and the thread YOU started? Maybe one of your friends can explain the link to you. Because I owe no one any explanation, least of all you. ☺
  15. The reasons why many people didn't want Amazon coming to a historically low-income area in Queens makes perfect sense. The poor in the area would be displaced. Where would they go? The NYC area, is already one of the most expensive in the nation, so, the poor won't be easily absorbed. These potentially high paying jobs at the headquarters, were NOT going to go to the working poor in the neighborhood. So, what was the real benefit to the neighborhood? Not much. Displacement. Greater income inequality. I think AOC served her constituents well. Of course, that is not the opinion of most Capitalists. But I am not a Capitalist.
