2014 JCR Impact Factor for Bioethics and Medical Ethics Journals
Caution: this list does not reflect 'quality', or 'best' unless you assume that a lot of people citing and criticising obviously flawed content published in a journal demonstrate that that journal is a high quality outlet. All it does is indicate how freque...

West Africa is currently witnessing the most extensive Ebola virus (EBOV) outbreak so far recorded. Until now, there have been 27,013 reported cases and 11,134 deaths. The origin of the virus is thought to have been a zoonotic transmission from a bat to a twoyear-old boy in December 2013 (ref. 2). From this index case the virus was spread by human-to-human contact throughout Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. However, the origin of the particular ...

It is not often I wish I was a pensioner in Wellington but I did this week. Given spare time and proximity to the city's High Court, I would have been in the public gallery every day - New Zealand Herald

The dangers of assisted suicide – making a mountain out of a mole hill
I recently came across this piece by an Australian psychiatrist, John Buchanan, published in Australia's only quality broadsheets, Melbourne's The Age and Sydney's Sydney Morning Herald. Much as it is flattering to be described in Australia as an influentia...

Desperate patients campaigning publicly for living donor organs
Interesting debate in Canada this week. The short version is this : reportedly wealthy, well-liked owner of Ottawa Senators needs urgently a liver transplant. He (well, his friends, but that's beside the point) uses his means (access to mass media) to campa...

I have eaten a few times in this pub. Frankly, I have no idea why people complain about the food or its prices. This is distinctly above-your-average pub-food quality, and the prices are very reasonable. Try the spring rolls for current 11$, they're nearly a meal replacement, that's how substantial the portions are. Service is ok, well, and as to the interior. It's an odd mix of stuff. In the back they've the venue for life performances, then another section with piles of pool tables, a large patio for the summer months and then yet another section for dance music which is also used for diners. It's just a massive place, nothing cozy about it, but I'm glad it is in the neighbourhood. Service is also usually friendly and competent.

I love this little gem of an airport. Most convenient for flights to Chicago and onwards. They offer free espresso, parking and wifi. Delightful.

Must say that I am a bit bemused about this company.I own various of its products, including two imacs, an ipad (1st gen), a macbook air and a timecapsule. Well, one of the imacs (cost me new about 1700$ or thereabouts) crapped up on me within less than two years and the Apple geniuses in Ottawa tell me that it would cost me 800$ to fix a component that should be working flawlessly for another couple of yrs. The Ipad shuts down programs randomly for no good reason at all, the brand new Timecapsule didn't work at all. Might all be coincidence, of course, but really I think at this stage that their hardware sucks beyond belief. I'm pretty much giving up on Apple and will buy a cheaper competitor's product (they won't offer much worse performance and reliability either, unfortunately, but at less than half the Apple price). I'm puzzled that this company believes it will survive by charging the living hell out of people for its products and offering precious little quality in return. Bit like Vaio really, this premium brand eventually also sank without a trace due to continuing quality issues. And no, Apple genius, it ain't good enough to charge another 800 $ for a repair that should never have been necessary at that point in the life of the computer...
