As a medical community we often complain that our government has abandoned us and that the public betrays us. But we need to reflect on how daily, we fail each other. The disrespect of colleagues and ritual humiliation of trainees is a tradition we should be weary of.
I met a young doctor who used to work under me recently. I had just completed my night rounds in the hospital and I was leaving for home. And then I saw him. He was unkempt, exhausted and appeared ...

Philosophy! Fierce battles, I tell you. But it was all over the humanities

I feel sorry for everyone that worked casualty shifts this weekend. What a horror of a weekend. While at CT scan at 3am on Saturday there was basically a queue of patients with blood stained bandages on their heads. Long weekend plus pay weekends are a disaster in this country.

Molecular motors are a pretty awesome feature in cellular transportIon. The right substrates get to the correct place, without interfering in the millions of biochemical reactions. It's an amazingly complex orchestra of interactions.

It's nice to see them animation instead of just in the textbook. Also nice to see people being fascinated by molecular biology again!
 
Motor Protein
I'm totally flabbergast!
"Motor proteins are a class of molecular motors that are able to move along the surface of a suitable substrate. They are powered by the hydrolysis of ATP and convert chemical energy into mechanical work"

It's big, it's expensive and it divides opinions everywhere! It's back! Even those of us with a rudimentary understanding of physics can't help being excited. Until you read the comments on threads anyway. The conspiracy theorists are also back 😒

A mother's life was in danger and her brother needed a legal way to approve the blood transfusion she was refusing to be given. Now our young judicial system has a landmark case that will be used as a reference in, "Right to refuse medical treatment issues".

This was however her life, not the life of her children and it was saved. The real test will come the next time it is a child and the outcome is bad. We cannot also assume parents always make decisions in the best interest of their children. I am in no way saying that she didn't have a right to refuse or that she didn't make good decisions for her children. The concern is that this case becomes legal precedence for the next time we do have a horrific set of circumstances with a bad outcome.

Thanks for posting this +Sheldon C. Dingle Jr.

Johanna Amunyela and team are working on a set of proteins that regulate how certain cancers behave. It's exciting work and the obvious question is will it yield suitable drug targets for the future! So proud of this incredible lady!

Namibian researcher Johanna Amunjela is among the first in the world to investigate the role that specific proteins have in how cancer develops. She has been speaking to BBC Africa's Farayi Mungazi.

I wonder about Anaïs Nin's seemless transition from unknown radical writer to feminist icon and more lately to a social media sound bite. It fascinates me. Not to say she is the first historic figure to have their words paired with pictures in short consumable and convenient chunks (Einstein, Maya Angelou and Mandela are all in top form). I also don't think it's harmful to post such things, I believe I referenced her myself recently. I just find it fascinating how little is generally known about her. Some who quote her may not even call her an icon if they knew what she wrote about and how she lived her life. I admit it may well be that where I'm from, she got very little time as an interesting historical figure and jumped straight to Instagram. Is she the Nikolai Tesla of inspirational feminist quotes?

Tonight's music mood is all about the fabulous Cesaria Evora!
Some Kizomba and Zouk also got thrown in to get the heart racing.

Watching Wreck-it-Ralph again, it's such a cute movie! What happened to the sequel rumors? I'd like to know what else Ryu and Ken do in their spare time and if Zangief is still attending Bad-Anon meetings. ☺️

Hahaha controlled by your GPS! Outstanding!
 
Your GPS could soon electrically stimulate your legs to move in a certain direction…because that is how lazy humanity has apparently become.

Seriously, what could go wrong?
Next generation navigation services could tell you where to walk via electrodes on your thighs.

Don't be eye candy, be soul food.
Introduction
I'm currently living and working in Windhoek, Namibia. I am generally interested in Internal medicine and am working in adult cardiology.
I love watching football and Formula 1 on weekends and have started a modest comic book collection.

I am motivated by my curiosity, my family and my close friends.

My posts can be very random...I'm a random...sorry :D I love interacting on other people's posts though.
