Hwy 33 is for the most part a crappy road. Try it in the back of an ambulance in the dark during a snowstorm for the full experience. If the BC gov't had any commitment at all to rural health, they would upgrade roads like this that are major links for people from places like the Kootenays and the Boundary to access higher levels of care.

Ouch - more of the same.
Jan. 12 update note to readers: I've received a few notes from readers who can't post comments because they don't have Facebook accounts and that's the commenting system we use. You can find those comments at the bottom of this page. P.F. When public agencies lack transparency, citizens can't be faulted for suspecting there are…

It seems to me the crux of the matter is still how to get people to see the value of what they do - their role or contribution has to feel like something worthwhile, rather than just burning time for a paycheque.
Only by meeting people’s desire for autonomy, their need to care and their yearning to feel competent, will you get what you want

#3 is my killer - my brain likes to jump around wayyyy too much.
Entrepreneurs are expected to do everything and be everything at all times. It’s part of business, especially when you’re first starting out.

bottom line (least fave manager-speak term) - you need time to think, create, correct, do

I am learning how to shut of email for periods of productive time.
We live in an age where we all want to go, go, go. But we also need to stop and think

Save the children! Are we really having this conversation again in the 21st century? The Europeans must just look over at us and shake their heads.

They are just bodies, people. Everyone inhabits one. If you want to be ashamed - do it on your own time, don't impinge on other people's simple enjoyment of feeling the sun and water on their skin.

If there is one thing BCAS seems to be good as an organization, it is hiding information about itself. In my constitutionally protected personal opinion........
The B.C. Ambulance Service has refused to release data that would show whether it is taking longer to respond to 911 calls, despite repeated promises to do so. B.C. Emergency Health Services, which operates the ambulance service, came under fire last year for its decision to downgrade 74 call types — including falls and assaults — from Code 3 or emergency, to Code 2 or routine.

Good question - yes they do work for the government, but they are used to not answering to anyone (the Auditor General put out a scathing report about their inability to collect or share data on effectiveness of service), so until someone really pushes them, they just carry on the way they always have. They need a kick in the pants like a lawsuit before they will consider changing, it seems.

People don't realize that nurses are permanently injured or even killed in the course of their duties. In the BC Interior, we have had 2 nurses killed in MVCs while performing their duties in community care in the past 3 years, and staff in mental health facilities seriously hurt. And that is just the stuff that makes the news.

Another great tip (or two.........)

I have been trying to get up earlier to do something physical, but also trying to start the work day by laying out 3 key goals, and listing the one email I have to send, the one phone call I have to make, and the one question I need answered.

Everything else can go on a to-do list in the background, not forgotten but not niggling in the back of your mind and dragging you away from things that REALLY need to get done.
Get exercise and allow for mental preparation time daily in order to accomplish your goals

Not a new one, but pretty funny. Love the Onion for their over-the-top 'stories'

Nice seafood, good local beer, love the panels that evoke being on an old sailing ship, waitstaff was friendly and pretty easy on the eyes. Tucked into a little alleyway so don't bring your big truck unless you are OK losing a little paint.
