A little backgroundHey guys, I'm Pat, a 26-year old newly graduated nurse who is looking to go into pediatric intensive care nursing. In light of a lot of what's being focused on in the news these…Continue
"I wouldn't even say the logo is vaguely snarling. Huskies tend to have an intense look on their face and their eyes seem to stare straight through you. They are a beautiful creature and maybe like most other things that is why feminists are…"
"Apparently, a UConn feminist student has complained to the UConn Administration because, she says, the new UConn Husky logo "promotes rape" and "intimidates women". Beware, ladies and those sensitive to cartoon dogs ... the…"
"Single-payer systems are a whole other world. I don't know how much choice of doctor Canadians have, though I do know it varies across regions.
But your experience shouldn't surprise even those of us in pay-for-service systems. Because…"
"History lesson for fun:
I think women were becoming physicians in the US in the 1850s. Today's education structure for the professions, with specialized graduate schools, is relatively recent. In earlier days, it was all done in more of an…"
"I'd just like to remind everyone that at any university big enough to have a nursing program, there are going to be all sorts of icky ideas running around. There will be angry atheists and white supremacists, old-timers angry that women can…"
