Why do you have to BS with your every post. We have had the same family doctor and his successor for more than 35 years. My daughter also uses the same doctor. While this doctor no longer accepts new medicare/medicade patients he has people who require that assistance, folks who have been his patients for years. Because of nobama care he is not accepting any new patients who depend on medicare/medicade to cover the costs.

In addition, younger people who are forced into the exchanges may find that this doctor is not available in the exchange plans.

Expect more family doctors to operate on a cash basis in the future, at lower fees than at present.

The brain causes the heart to pump. When someone is brain dead, the heart cannot pump as fast to survive. So the heart stops functioning within hours or days.

Can the heart work without the brain?










Answer: Page 2 of 2

cases a patient can be considered 'brain dead' because all higher functions of the brain have ceased, and often even with support present the body will cease to function within hours or days.

Your family physician is not always available, especially if you find yourself in the ER. If you are unresponsive the decision is left to you next of kin. Many families have been destroyed because they fight over what to do about Mom who just had a massive stroke and the kids and/or Dad cannot agree on the course of care. As far as it being in your medical records, if you present it to the hospital on one admission, it does not mean that it will be honored on future admissions.
True. Unless a family member knows the patient's family physician to secure a Living Will, I'm quite sure it can still be a dilemma.

Best thing is to make sure someone close to you knows where it can be found. But that doesn't always happen.

<quoted text>Well here's the truth: Thing is, the power outage was nothing unusual – and not at all sinister. When the weather is sizzling hot, the city’s brittle, outdated system gets overwhelmed because of extra air-conditioner use. It happened at least three times last summer, and customers endured longer outages.
This is what really happened last week: City officials warned courts, schools, municipal buildings and others to limit their use of electricity during two consecutive days of 95-plus temperatures to avoid a power outage.
On Sept. 11, the second day of the heat wave, one of the five main trunk lines supplying the city’s grid was down as part of routine maintenance by DTE.
“While that trunk line was down, it increased the load on the remaining four supplying the grid, causing another one to fail,” EM spokesman Bill Nowling told me.
Soon the city was down to three overwhelmed trunk lines, increasing the risk of a cascading blackout. To avoid an outage at hospitals and DPS schools, the city cut off power to other public institutions.
When word circulated that the city intentionally shut off power to courts and other important buildings, rumors swirled that the EM and his staff callously pulled the plug as a show of power, stranding people in elevators and causing security concerns at courts.
It’s a nice narrative, but the decision to turn off the power was a practical one – and it needed to be made at a moment’s notice. There was no time to issue another warning.
In the media, we have a responsibility to be honest so people can make their own decisions. Fueling fears and resentment is a disservice to the more than 700,000 people who live in Detroit and want to know what’s really going on.
Want a real conspiracy involving the emergency manager? State and city officials repeatedly lied to the public about the prospect of landing an emergency manager. That was real.
The narrative about the power outage was not.
Poor poor Sonic trying to scare the people of Detroit, I think they must be scared enough with all the crime without you propagandizing. Liberal liar.
Another classic example of the politics that democrats love to play with EVERYTHING. The grid gets overwhelmed by usage because the windmills weren't turning fast enough to produce enough energy to meet the demand (predictable), so the democrats turn the physical limitations of the system into a republican conspiracy to show the little guy, that they hate beyond anything, who really is boss. And if you just put the democrats back in charge, which is how it should always be, they will "fix" it so that the next time it happens, it will be the fault of the republicans. Nobody hates better then a democrat.

City of Detroit Chief Compliance Officer, Gary Brown smiled as he talked to Wiley about the "intentional outages" on camera. Play the video to see the exchange:
Wiley: Did any of the customers get any notice that the power would be cut?
Brown: We did start calling our customers prior to taking them down and asking them to turn off air conditioners, but they weren't responding as fast as we would like them to so we had to send them a strong message by turning the power off.
The 'message' has Judge Craig Strong fuming. Strong works at the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice, which was shut down on Monday after a prisoner knifed a Wayne County Sheriff's deputy to escape. The event started a man hunt that left many people in the downtown area stressed. Strong says,"We're in a building that's already on high alert after what happened on Monday, we don't need any more mistakes. If they we're going to do this they should have given us notice so we could plan around it."

Chief Compliance Officer???...WTF is that, reported only on MediaMatters

The system was overloaded and they requested the government slugs at the courthouse to cut back their use of AC to prevent the entire system from crashing, creating a widespread blackout (excuse racist term). When they refused to cooperate, the power was cut off.

So our "symbolism over substance" president has demonstrated in the last few weeks why you don't hire the guy that lacks the credentials, character, and resume for the job. Enough were baffled by the bullshit to be convinced that he was 'smart" enough for the job even without the executive level management experience necessary for the presidency of the United States. Brilliant campaigning is one thing. Something all successful politicians must be able to do, and Barry does it better then most, but the time for campaigning is over. It's time to lead and this guy is out playing golf, blaming republicans, and giving Russia power it has not had for the last 25 years. To think we have to suffer three more years before the democrats try and convince us that Hillary is the answer to all the woes of the country and the world. After all, every thing that is bad today, which is a whole bunch, is all the fault of the republicans. Just ask any democrat or the president himself. They'll tell you all right. It's those rascally republicans and their hate for the whole country.

Once again, from your own source:

Even though extent at the beginning of this summer was similar to last year, the melt season ended with considerably more ice.

As a whole, air temperatures this summer have been below average over most of the central Arctic Ocean and Greenland, helping to slow down ice melting.

The point is, there is now a cooling trend. What some of us have been trying to tell Al Gore groupies the past six months.

Power outage outrage

When FOX 2 asked Brown if he gave warning of a planned power shut down Brown says "we didn't get into details like that."

That's a minor detail, right? That you're going to turn off the power to dozens of businesses without warning, on the 12-year anniversary of 9/11, on the hottest day of summer, two days after a deputy was stabbed inside Frank Murphy Hall of Justice? That's not worth mentioning?

Obama needs another Kissinger. Instead of Jarrett and Axelrod.

It's also why this president has not reached out to anyone to get the right advise - a form of narcissism.

People are often pressured into signing "living wills" in an emotional moment, against their better judgment. Most hospitals will not pull the plug (assist suicide) on a patient that has a reasonable chance of recovery, regardless of such documents, nor should they. The living will is just a starting point for litigation.

If you want Grandma to pass away peacefully after she has a massive stroke, don't call 911.

As far as a hospital is concerned, if they don't see the paper-it doesn't exist, and the next of kin makes the decisions. There is a pecking order for that-spouse, adult children in order of age, parents, siblings in order of age, grandchildren, other family members, adult friend.

Why don't you come back and talk about this when you know what you are talking about. A person has the right to refuse treatment, either by words or by having a living will-as long as it can be produced, it will be honored.
