Scrubs Day

So yesterday I did something medical.

I attended a “Scrubs Day” course at Manchester University organised by FastBleep Schools and first things first it was so tiring (8:30am-5pm and I had like four hours sleep) but extremely informative and useful, like really  useful.
And we also got given scrubs to wear and I deeply regret not getting a picture with my scrubs on *sad face*

The main reason the day was really good was because the sessions and talks weren’t just the typical “How to apply to university” or “Make your personal statement look good” but instead they included the essential  points to focus on in your personal statement not the wishy washy stuff, the life of a doctor after graduation, the whole of spectrum options for a doctor after completing their F1 and F2 years and an insight in to problem based learning.

I survived a suicide attempt, spent years in rehab centers, jails, psych hospitals. Now I have worked as supervisor at these type facilities.

However my friend, he did not. This is what suicide looks like. This is him, after hanging himself, right before he died.


The difference is nothing. He grew up in a dysfunctional home, where the norm was drug use, physical, emotional, and psychological abuse. They didn’t have money, we did. He went to jail, he stayed. I went to jail, I got bailed out. I got to go to…

Resveratrol in Grape Skins Could Help Treat Cancer and More

Resveratrol, a potent antioxidant found in a number of plants, including red grape skins, pomegranate, raw cacao, peanuts, and berries like raspberries and mulberries, is known to have a number of beneficial health effects.

The compound is produced by plants to increase their survival and resistance to disease during times of stress, such as excessive ultraviolet light, infections and climate changes. When you consume these plants, you can reap similar protection.

Resveratrol’s antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties have been well-established by science, and its benefits are thought to extend to the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, among others.

‘Uncanny Valley’ Of Creepy Humanoid Robots Still Not Well Understood

When Pixar screened a computer-animated short film called “Tin Toy” in 1988, test audiences hated the sight of the pseudo-realistic baby named “Billy” who terrorized the toys. Such a strong reaction persuaded Pixar to avoid making uncannily realistic human characters — it has since focused its efforts on films about living toys, curious robots and talking cars to win Academy Awards and moviegoers’ hearts.

8 Cold Cases We Never Thought Would Be Solved

Unsolved mysteries: they’re the stuff of the cop shows we watch late at night, the suspense novels we guiltily read, the blockbuster thrillers we see in theaters. But while we love watching police solve tough-to-crack cases in neat narratives, criminal justice is rarely served in such short order.

The truth is that cases go “cold” for years, even decades, before new evidence and testimony allow authorities to try and convict a culprit, no matter how abominable the crimes may be.

Here, we’ve partnered with TNT’s “Cold Justice” to tell the unbelievable stories of criminals who got away with murder for years before being brought to justice.

5 Tips to Raising Independents Not Codependents

1. Do not be afraid of another person’s anger.

Yes kids I got angry. Today I lost it and said “bad” things when the bus driver pushed its way into my lane and I panicked when the cyclist rode in between us. Yes, I was very angry when you launched a group chat that messaged a hundred phones throughout the greater metro area and France over two hundred times in one hour, but don’t be afraid of my anger, but a person who loves you will not hurt you.

Children your actions will have consequences that will include emotional responses from people but understand that some people choose to use anger as a tool to mold and shape your behavior to control you, a person who loves you will not do so.

So say good-bye to the iPad young texter. Do not expect a cell phone anytime in the near or…

I live about three miles away from UNLV (school).  Since I was a little lazy this morning and didn’t wake up early to do my run, I drove to school one hour earlier than usual so I could get it over with.  I get to the UNLV gym, I put my clean clothes in the locker room, and put my running clothes on.  I was planing to do just an easy run.  I was going to run to the park that is right next to my house and then back to UNLV.  About six miles total.  I went out and right away realized that it was way hot out.  I didn’t think much about it and kept going, I got to the park and ran through the water park.  The water park was full of kids, but I still went ahead and joined the fun and got as wet as…

Controlling the Home, Google Style

When Google goes after the home, it goes big. And maybe it goes after control, too.

On Tuesday, Nest, a Google-owned company that makes Internet-connected thermostats and smoke alarms, was one of six companies that announced a consortium to promote the easy online connection of other devices.

How many devices per home? “Two hundred and fifty products per home network,” said Chris Boross, the president of the consortium, known as the Thread Group, and also the head of technical marketing at Nest. “That should provide ample room for growth in the future.”

A diagram from Thread, a new consortium for Internet-enabled devices, illustrates how a so-called mesh network could enable various gadgets and appliances to communicate easily with one another.
