People will tell you that empathy is the key to being a good doctor. That the ability to really see not just a patient, but a person and their narrative is the key to compassionate care. They’re not wrong of course, but what we don’t seem to want to tell each other is how to turn that tap off.
I pressed the plastic oxygen mask onto her face and wondered what my own face must look like as she saw it, upside down.

Governmental accountability to be cut by 50% and blame to be outsourced to more vulnerable organisations.

When choosing how to be patriotic, keep this in mind.

'Patriotism alone is not enough. I must have no hatred nor bitterness for anyone.'

Educational psychologists who took part in the survey said “intolerance of difference” affected the way adults viewed children’s learning and behaviour. One wrote: “There is an increasingly prevalent view in society that people who do not fit a particular environment must have something wrong with them.”
A fifth of educational psychologists say they know of children being given medication despite guidelines advising against it

LSE economics prof Nick Barr keeps being asking by his friends how they should vote in the EU referendum. Here's his answer. It's comprehensive - and even if you disagree there are plenty of links to get your teeth into. http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/brexitvote/2016/05/27/dear-friends-this-is-why-i-will-vote-remain-in-the-referendum/

LOVE this - making your tropical fish feel at home...
We spotted this aquarium project on YouTube, and were struck with searing pangs of fishy jealousy; imagine having a 2000-litre slice of the Cayman Islands, complete with the weather as it is right now, in your living room. aMGee has equipped his (enormous) tropical fish tank, full of corals as well as fish, with an IoT Raspberry …

I know it seems unpleasant, but of the two ways we typically transfer them, I promise this is the one you want.

For AMD users this is nice to read.

Very friendly staff, tolerant of my never knowing the name of the bit of my bike that needs sorting out, and they don't do work unnecessarily (I've been talked down from a level 2 to a level 1 service on occasion). Recommended.

We looked at tiles from here and one other place when redoing our kitchen, and went with a tile from Walls and Floors in Putney which was about 30% cheaper than the similar one from Castelnau Tiles. Walls and Floors, however, couldn't manage to deliver tiles which were the same size, and it then took them a week to arrange a redelivery...which they cancelled on the morning we were expecting it. We went back in to Castelnau Tiles and they arranged delivery of the right number of tiles, of identical sizes, the following morning. From our ordering to delivery was about 20 hours, and the express delivery charge was only thirty pounds. Yes, they are expensive, but we found out the hard way that it's worth paying people who will do the job properly the first time. Wholeheartedly recommended.

Jaw-droppingly bad product and service. I ordered about 40 square metres of the same tile having picked up a sample from in-store. Although the staff were initially very helpful in the shop everything from then on out was dismal. Walls and Floors delivered three different batches of the same tile, with three different barcodes on the boxes. We found this out because the sixth box of tiles the builders went to lay were 5mm smaller than the ones already down, meaning they didn't match up. Looking at the boxes it appeared they'd found some old ones at the back of the warehouse they'd palmed off on us. We called up and explained this was now holding up our building work. The shop were quite defensive - they actually said "this always happens"! - but promised they'd arrange a new delivery of identical tiles from the same batch, although this would take them a week to organise. The following tuesday my wife e-mailed the shop in the morning to ask what time the delivery would be, and got a reply back saying essentially: sorry, problem with the manufacturers, it'll be another couple of weeks. Needless to say we cancelled the order, took a refund, and ordered from somewhere else (Castelnau tiles) who although more expensive had a set of identical tiles to us the following day. Walls and Floors couldn't even arrange collection - having delivered a lot of the tiles to us unboxed but shrinkwrapped they then said they couldn't pick them up because they were unboxed! Walls and Floors are cheaper: we found out why the hard way, and we ended up paying our builders more money to sit on their hands for a week, and paying a competent tile company a premium to get tiles delivered quickly when Walls and Floors let us down for the second time. I cannot advise you strongly enough to avoid this company.
