A few links for your weekend browsing pleasure:

  • Cloud warfare: Army Adds Its Own Aviation Unit. Bottom-up changes in the military for asymmetrical warfare using Pin-Point Liquidations and Network Collapse
  • Dean Esmay sobers up: and writes a very enlightening piece on the progression of alcoholism: Alcoholism Progression
  • Protecting your credit and identity: Been dinged a few times with fraudulent credit card charges, so it’s tempting to hire one of those credit & ID theft protection companies. Turns out you can easily do everything they do, for a lot less money: Never Pay Someone to Protect Your Identity. A credit lock is also cheap, easy, and reversible — not to mention a good safeguard against impulsive credit by you: Credit Security Freezes
  • Dr. Discontented: Man, can I relate — my profession is being exsanguinated by a thousand cuts, and its a full-time effort to keep focused on the goal of caring for patients. Lots of docs are retiring early, lots more restricting their practices or doing more boutique services. Look for a significant access problem in the near future. Eyes Bloodshot, Doctors Vent Their Discontent
  • Open-source health care: Interesting take from a Linux guy on shifting the control center to the patient. Mixed bag, from where I see it, with huge issues of privacy, data security, access control (who gets to see/edit your medical data?), etc. The Patient as the Platform (HT: John Ballard)
  • Straight Talk Express?: “Brothel bus” makes last stop in Miami Beach
  • Lets do the Canadian health care system, shall we?: Canadian Health Care We So Envy Lies In Ruins, Its Architect Admits

That’s all for now, God bless, take care.

    Thanks for the link about the Canadian health care system. So many people in the CF community think that Canadians have it made with their health care system.

    One person on the fourm heard the new Messiah mention CF in one of his speeches and is ga-ga. I gag.

    Thanks again. I’m going to post that link.
