re: (Science Board) Post-doctoral researchers are invisible - but not oppressed. - Elephino
I did my PhD within a Health Science Center (only graduate and professional degrees) and never had to teach undergrad labs or lectures. My stipend was justified because I taught pharmaceutical compounding lab, which was a necessary and beneficial skill for me. I was on an industrial track. My pos...

re: (Science Board) Post-doctoral researchers are invisible - but not oppressed. - Elephino
My best advice to someone seeking a PhD in one of the basic sciences (maybe except physics, sorry, not being a dick) would be to pursue one associated with a professional degree program. For example, pathophysiology, biochemistry, cellular/molecular genetics obtained in the respective department at...

re: 5th Circuit in NOLA tosses injunction. Texas abortion clinics to close. - Elephino
Actually, based on personal experience, a physician at a religious-affiliated hospital can tell you that your unborn child has a lethal condition, will not survive outside the womb, continuing the pregnancy is a risk to your wife due to complications, and should be terminated...now please go to anot...

re: 5th Circuit in NOLA tosses injunction. Texas abortion clinics to close. - Elephino
Dr. / patient confidentiality doesn't seem like a reasonable argument. We still have laws against physician-assisted suicide, which is a private decision. I guess what I'm getting is the inconsistency of laws and how they are applied. For example, California law states - [quote]187. (a) Murder i...

re: 5th Circuit in NOLA tosses injunction. Texas abortion clinics to close. - Elephino
So they actually did argue on the terms of a "constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy"? So what article or amendment is this right being associated? Again, not being an ass. I'm just trying to rationalize a ruling such as this with the number of fetal homicide laws that exist in nearly 40 s...

I remember the argument about admitting rights, but the article specifically states [quote]federal appeals court ruled Thursday that the state may enforce a law that requires those facilities to be built to the same standards as hospitals.[/quote]. Is this another provision of the same law? ...

Right. My title says "tosses injunction" just like the article. Are you implying nothing can be done to overturn or fight their lifting of the injunction? I honestly don't know...chemist not attorney....

Almost 30 years ago...when it was ok to make fun of people. There was a hefty girl everyone called Jabba (Star Wars was big). Friend was singing "a country boy can survive". She told him to stop. He did momentarily while he eased up behind her. Got in her ear and yelled "a country boy can survive"! ...

re: Hangover cure (Berocca) coming to the US! - Elephino
Tylenol and heavy drinking is a bad idea. Water is key, but when you dri k it is more important. Alcohol inhibits antidiuretic hormone (once you break the seal you can't stop). It takes approximately 5 hours after your last drink to stop inhibiting adh. If you have discipline, set your alarm for 5 h...

re: Video of Michael Brown dead in street - WARNING, GRAPHIC - Elephino
I was seeing an abridged video (CNN only 2-3 min). You have to scroll down to "wandy" to see the 10 min version. It's hard to hear everything, but it appears that Meaux's quotes are also accurate. This case is a mess no matter the outcome. I hope the forensics remain unbiased and either definiti...

re: Video of Michael Brown dead in street - WARNING, GRAPHIC - Elephino
Not pressing or intentionally being an ass. I've watched the video multiple times and have not heard anyone say "I saw what happened and it was x". The man in the video says several times "that's what they said". He also says he didn't see it, but heard the shots, as did the other guy. Can you p...

We use Lexington Medical Center as one of our preceptor sites; very nice. GSP is small, too small for the growth of the city.
