Aim to be the Master of your Universe

Aim to be the master of your universe Amazingly, we can be the victims and masters of our own minds at the same time! Remember, we are in charge of how our mind chooses to busy itself. We have the option to be the master of our universe. I don’t always hear that recognition in the voices around me? Aim to be the master of your universe Before we continue I’d like to extend my condolences and best, best wishes to Ann...

Zietgeist? Shine a light!

    This post will be about issues brought up in Face the Facts on wednesday the 16th July. The radio show was talking about the how parents of children with a chronic condition were feeling compelled to pay for treatment that might benefit their autistic children as that particular chronic condition, in their opinion was falling through the NHS’s net. I appreciate there are a number of folk that say autism IS curable...

Horses greater than zebras?

It was in the news today, in the Independant that Britain is woefully under represented by scientists and mathematicians. We seem to have a greater number of media studies graduates. The winner of a third of the Nobel Prize of physiology and/or Medicine, Randy Shekman, (received in December 2013) has announced his lab will no longer put forward papers to a number of “luxuryjournals” such as Cell, Nature and Science as he...

NHS is tiptop… and not!

This just released: The UK’s National Health Service is tiptop and beats many other nations’ healthcare of and for its citizens. This is fantastic news but not necessarily surprising that we do better than the US who spends more on its health service and still turns people away at their hospital door with no offer of care. The Commonwealth Fund, a Washington-based foundation which is respected around the world came to its...
