Interesting article about the pay-for-performance craze.
What isn't mentioned is that many just decide to step out of the hamster cage instead of running faster and putting up with more paperwork and regulations.

Worth re-watching: Family Guy episode about anti-vaxxers.

Homeopathic "medication" that actually contained an active ingredient.

Urgent crap movie warning: High-Rise (2015).
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462335/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
It is based on a dystopian sci-fi novel by J.G Ballard.
It is supposed to show hierarchy and class divisions in a High-Rise building with the poor living on the lower floors and the rich on top. Reminded me of "Snowpiercer" but as a B or C movie/student project with wasted actors (Tom Hiddleston (Loki from Thor/Avengers), Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller and Luke Evans).
It may have been a good read as a book but the movie was just god-awful. Very slow, showing Loki showering about a dozen times, low-quality gratuitous nudity, extreme smoking, lots of drinking and some cocaine use.
None of the characters is likable.
You have been officially warned.
If anyone here likes the movie, please explain it to me.

Here is the most-liked IMDB review (if I had read that before, I wouldn't have watched it): "Eight people - about half the audience - walked out of this; usually I think, big deal, let them leave, some people have no taste. ..I think they were just bored. I was. I should have walked too. As another reviewer here has written, JG Ballard can't be adapted for the screen. He's about right. That's the main problem - the script is a mess, both pretentious and trite, also very pleased with itself. Performances are uneven, and nothing much happens - for example, there is talk of a lobotomy, but that's about it. It's cobblers. Never has anarchic behaviour seemed to tedious and naff. Well worth avoiding, despite a couple of promising moments - the costume party, for example, and the thug who says 'You won't be needing that' - both of which director Wheatley fails to capitalise on. Oh, and it features an annoying intelligent kid, which is a big no no."

I heard today about another death due to anti-vaxxer attitude.
28 year old female patient whose parents were vehement antivaxxers. She had some upper respiratory infection, felt weak and had a headache. Her friend checked on her at noon and she was o.k. Coming back at 3 pm she was already ashen looking and non-responsive. She went into full sepsis and multi-organ failure and died in the ICU. It turned out to be bacterial meningitis and the health department contacted everyone involved in her care to get a dose of rocephin PO. She leaves behind a 15 month old baby. Her husband (son of the person telling me this) had been vaccinated for meningitis and did well. The baby ended up in the hospital for 4 days (lumbar puncture, blood cultures, iv antibiotics) and never tested positive for meningitis. 
You won't read stories like this one vactruth or naturalnews but people die unnecessarily of vaccine-preventable diseases. 
Sorry, no link, picture or video, just retelling of a grieving mother-in-law (RN) and grandmother.

Anybody here know more about this case? The antivaxxers are going gangbusters about it. Apparently the mother has epilepsy and other health issues. Autopsy results are pending.
