Atheist Doctors Might Kill You

first_imgYour doctor’s religious beliefs – or lack of them – might have a lot to do with how soon you exit this world when elderly or infirm.  Science Daily reported, “Atheist or agnostic doctors are almost twice as willing to take decisions that they think will hasten the end of a very sick patient’s life as doctors who are deeply religious, suggests research published online in the Journal of Medical Ethics.”  The press release from the British Medical Association concluded, “the relationship between doctors’ values and their clinical decision making needs to be acknowledged much more than it is at present.”The findings appear to be subject to interpretation, because not all religions are created equal.  The article said, for instance, “Specialists in the care of the elderly were somewhat more likely to be Hindu or Muslim, while palliative care doctors were somewhat more likely than other doctors to be Christian, white, and agree that they were ‘religious.’”    Interpretation aside, consider the logic: a religious person is likely to care very much about the afterlife and the consequences of dying.  Religious doctors are also likely to have moral principles about the sanctity of life.  Why would an atheist care about such things?  When you die, you die; it’s only natural (everything dies, after all), and better that a patient be put out of misery.  Let the dying sleep so we can focus the resources on the living, he or she might say.    Ideas have consequences.  You had better consider your doctor’s beliefs, and the beliefs of health care policy makers, when considering your final will about prolonging your own life.  The new leftist/progressive push toward universal health care (mostly promoted by the non-religious) also contains the seeds of rationing – decisions about what lives are worth preserving without any thought of human dignity.  Despite the promises and repudiations about rationing, the American president snuck in a recess appointment for head of the healthcare program who has overtly promoted rationing as a preferred policy (see TownHall.com).  Watch what politicians do, not what they say.  That principle applies more than ever in the current political environment..    One tragic statistic in the press release illustrates the erosion of belief in God among the majority American population: “But, overall, white doctors, who comprised the largest ethnic group among the respondents, were the least likely to report strong religious beliefs.”(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Honest conversations about opioids can save lives

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Matt Niswander, a first-generation cattleman from Tennessee who works full-time in his community as a family nurse practitioner and owns Niswander Family Medicine, a hometown, primary care family medical practiceEvery week in our country, the equivalent of two jumbo jets full of people die from a preventable opioid epidemic, and those deaths are often rising the fastest in farm country.For the last 15 years I have worked in the healthcare field in rural America, from the emergency room to my hometown primary care. One thing I have seen is that anyone can become addicted to opioids that are prescribed legally for a legitimate injury. It only takes three days to become addicted and for your body to crave the euphoria that opioids produce. If you think you are immune to the possibility of addiction, you’re wrong.I often have people come into my medical office complaining of real pain, and they know a pain pill will help them get back to work. These are not stereotypical drug addicts or pill-seeking patients. They are blue- and white-collar workers, and farmers and ranchers, who know that there is medicine that makes the pain better. They don’t realize that the opioids they say they want have the same euphoric and addiction effect on their body chemically as heroin. When I share this information with them, they want to try the non-opioid treatments almost 100% of the time.I will venture to say that many healthcare providers do not have these kinds of candid conversations due to time constraints, lack of knowledge or just being uncomfortable, but it can lead down a dangerous path for the patient and the provider very quickly if they don’t. That’s why it’s so important for healthcare providers to be advocates for prevention and discuss alternatives to non-opioid medications for acute and chronic pain management.When healthcare providers find themselves in a position where they feel cornered into writing opioid medications or a person notices they may be addicted to a prescription opioid they are taking, we have to create an environment where the stigma around that conversation is lifted and those individuals can receive non-judgmental treatment and advice. Sharing some of these candid facts will help reduce the stigma, and will create outlets for honest conversations to happen so we can address this multi-pronged issue.I have conversations all the time with people about whether they are addicted to opioids as well as with concerned family members about their loved ones being addicted. It can be uncomfortable and even scary at times.If you are concerned that someone you know may be addicted to opioids, know that some of the early warning signs may be written off as “normal teenage behavior,” or “they are just stressed,” or may seem like depression or mental health issues. The best questions you can ask a loved one are direct, such as, “Have you been using prescription or illegal drugs?” We may dread to hear the answer, but being prepared to have that conversation is key. Make sure you do not get angry or get offended. Be calm and clear about what you ask or say, know when to stop the conversation and talk about it later, and make sure the person knows you love them no matter what.If you’re not ready for that conversation but you suspect opioid abuse, the best thing you can do is be prepared by having Narcan medication on hand. Narcan is the reversal medication for someone who has overdosed on opioids and is very easy to administer by nasal spray. It can be obtained for free and without a prescription from larger pharmacy retailers in many states. Contact your local pharmacy for more details. It could save a life.last_img read more

GPS-enabled vehicles to transport EVMs in M.P.

first_imgThe vehicles used for transporting Electronic Voting Machines in the Lok Sabha election in Madhya Pradesh will be installed with GPS [Global Positioning System].“GPS will be installed on vehicles to be used for transporting EVMs in the Lok Sabha election in the State. Similarly, control rooms will be set up in each district headquarters for tracking the vehicles,” Chief Electoral Officer V.L.

Pressure will be a constant companion: Sachin Tendulkar ahead of India-New Zealand semi-final

first_imgCricket legend Sachin Tendulkar feels both India and New Zealand will be under a lot of pressure when they face each other in the World Cup 2019 semi-final in Manchester on Tuesday.India topped the points table in the league phase with seven wins out of nine matches while New Zealand are heading into the last-four game on the back of three successive defeats. But both teams will have to start from scratch in the knockout game when they take the field.Tendulkar reckons that players do not say it in front of the media or fans, but they do feel the pressure ahead of the big-ticket clash like the one coming up for India and New Zealand.”Pressure will be there, it is going to be a constant companion. There are those pressure moments, you just have to absorb them and we have players in our team who are good at that. It is just about winning those close moments,” Tendulkar told India Today.The former India captain also suggested Virat Kohli’s side to stick to the mantra that has been working for them in this tournament so far and not try anything different if not required.”If we can stick to our brand of cricket, we don’t need to compare ourselves with anyone. I would like to tell them when you play New Zealand and hopefully after that, stick to your brand of cricket. All the build up that is happening is outside the team, within the team it is about preparation,” Tendulkar said.advertisementIndia will be facing New Zealand in a World Cup semi-final for the first time in the history of the 50-over tournament. New Zealand have played 7 semi-finals so far and won just once while India have a 3:3 record in World Cup semis.Kohli’s side has been dominant in this edition so far but Tendulkar feels they shouldn’t take New Zealand lightly even though Kane Williamson’s team hasn’t been in the best of forms in the final few league games.”New Zealand, it’s a very good team and underrated. They have performed consistently well. It’s not going to be a cakewalk for India. We have to go out and repeat doing what we have been doing for a number of games.”Whoever is talking about India already getting into the finals, does not understand cricket. The players and support staff will only be focussed on this match. Now that we have entered the semis, don’t start talking about the final,” Tendulkar said.Talking about making team changes, Tendulkar also suggested that India can look at all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja as a candidate for the No. 7 spot in the playing XI.”Jadeja is one option I would like to throw on the table to the team management. I feel if Dinesh Karthik is going to bat at No. 7 then possible Jadeja could be an option there because his left-arm spin can come in handy. In a big match you would want a cover up because we are playing just 5 bowlers.”I would also be tempted to bring back Mohammed Shami because against West Indies he was good on the same venue. When we talk about Old Trafford there are pleasant experiences for Shami, he came back into the team and picked up wickets. So I would be tempted to have him back,” Tendulkar said.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Rohit Sharma’s batting is poetry in motion, says Sachin TendulkarAlso Read | New Zealand have won just 1 out of 7 World Cup semi-finalsAlso Read | Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson were captains in India vs New Zealand Under 19 World Cup semi-finallast_img read more

College Football’s Biggest “Sleeping Giants”

first_imgCollege Football Map.CFB Map“Sleeping giant” is a term people love to throw around in the college football world. Everyone kind of has their own definition for what a “sleeping giant” is, but it can basically be summed up like this: a college football program that, for whatever the reason, has yet to reach its full potential, a potential that is at a national title-level. Who are the biggest sleeping giants in college football, then? SB Nation’s Bill Connelly tweeted out this question this morning. Sunday pop quiz: What program do you consider the biggest potential sleeping giant in college football?— Bill Connelly (@SBN_BillC) July 10, 2016He didn’t himself give an answer.
