Comment on: In Practice: Doctors, patients, and computer screens - Health & wellness - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/24/2014 03:22:33 EST
My doctor almost never LOOKS at me; he has his face in the computer nearly the entire time that I'm in his office. I understand that he's required to fill out forms and to take notes, but it feels qu more »

Posted 02/03/2014 04:26:52 EST
You can STEAL THE MAIL and get only a year of probation and a fine of less than $1000? That doesn't seem like much of a deterrent for such a large breach of trust!

Comment on: Brain-training can help older adults stave off aging impairments, study finds - Health & wellness - The Boston Globe

Comment on: Bear caught in Mass. town is euthanized - Destinations - Boston.com
Posted 09/28/2013 01:42:32 EDT
Globe, the bear was KILLED. It's only euthanasia when an animal is killed to spare it pain and suffering; when an animal is killed merely because it's inconvenient, the poor animal is KILLED.

Comment on: Dementia care standards unveiled for Massachusetts nursing homes - Health & wellness - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/14/2013 04:03:06 EDT
Eight WHOLE hours of dementia training? That sounds like hardly any to me, not like something to trumpet. Yeah, it's better than nothing, but EIGHT? Sheesh.
