engityra,

Yeah, I had a bunch of eggs that got cracked from a dropped carton or something. Made a couple of quiches and froze one. Still great when reheated later on.

Could nurse practitioners fill the primary care gap? (www.theglobeandmail.com)

Nurse practitioners could help fill the void, advocates for the profession say, if more provinces would adopt policies to integrate them into primary care and pay them fairly for their work. Some physicians’ organizations have pushed back against that approach, arguing that NPs don’t have as much training or education as...

engityra,

They already are. My work benefits include a service where I can video chat with a NP any time and I don't have to wait as long for an appointment, which has been handy when I just need some quick advice or a prescription cream for my little ones. We have a family doctor and I love her but she typically books a few weeks out so I only make appointments with her for annual checkups and more serious talks that I can put off for a while.

engityra,

Bill Amend (Fox trot comics) is my most memorable meet. Grew up on those comics. I cried. Lol.

engityra,

The more reasonable christians out there who still believe that aren't dramatic enough for the headlines.

engityra,

As someone who has two living IVF babies, 8 frozen embryos remaining, and is also Christian, this line struck a particularly strong chord:

"Nobody understands more that an embryo is not a child, than the person yearning for that embryo to be a child."

Calgary liquor store offering support 6-pack for Swifties forced to watch Super Bowl (calgary.ctvnews.ca)

The Super Bowl broadcast is notorious for drawing a large contingent of non-football fans who watch for the commercials and the half-time show. Now, an Alberta liquor store is offering a trio of Super Bowl-themed six packs ahead of Sunday’s big game, including one targeted at the newest group of NFL fans.

"You have a quote that I found interesting, where you said the problem is the loudest journalism in America is generally saying the least. Can you unpackage that?" (www.youtube.com)

"With our show... no one in their right mind would try and do a show about prison health. No one. No one wants to hear about that. But they should know about it! And so we're going to force-feed it to them, and we're in a very very lucky position, because we don't have the commercial pressures that other certain news outlets do...

engityra,

Yeah, I watched this a few days ago and also came away thinking it was one of the better episodes I've seen.

engityra,

Have a 9 month old and am also concerned. At least I am on maternity leave until September and so he's not in daycare yet.

engityra,

I work in construction and when I was younger and single I did a couple years ago a remote work site; two weeks on and one week off rotations. We all stayed in the company provided camp while there. Definitely formed some strong friendships with my coworkers while there and made/saved a ton of money. It was an interesting experience.

I was a field engineer but jobs in the trades are always in high demand pretty much everywhere.

engityra,

I make butter chicken from sometimes but if I'm doing a "too lazy to cook" version it's with jarred sauce and leftover rotisserie chicken.

engityra,

I also heard that one floating around the engineering school I attended.

engityra,

I work in construction and I don't know that I agree. They're digging a tunnel for a road, not mining, and earthworks crews generally consistent of equipment operators and labourers.

Question to those not in the USA, and who have lived outside the USA.

I’ve been thinking about something and want to check an assumption I have. I only hear directly from other people in the USA, and interract with the global community through memes. How are the gun regulations/laws different from yours in terms of strictness, and do you wish there was more or less where you live?...

engityra,

My dad has a gun licence (Canadian) and interestingly, he mentioned there was a place in the application where your spouse (and/or former spouse) must sign off on your application too. I can see how that might hinder a few violent exes.

engityra,

I mean, if you're breastfeeding they do get like that sometimes, but the placement of the boobs so far apart is what weirds me out

engityra,

This class did a big chunk of their highschool through the pandemic didn't they? I imagine they probably are a bit behind because of it.

New Vaccine Can Completely Reverse Autoimmune Diseases Like Multiple Sclerosis, Type 1 Diabetes, and Crohn’s Disease (scitechdaily.com)

This is fascinating as it works contrary to how most vaccines work. The usual method is to teach the immune system to attack things ( Covid, Polio, Influenza, etc, etc). This does the opposite, it makes the immune system forget to attack things it shouldn't be attacking. The list of autoimmune diseases is long, and many people...

engityra,

As someone with family members who are type 1 diabetics, I have heard the joke that everyone who gets diagnosed with it is told there will be a cure in 10 years. It's nice to see they've started trials on this at least.

[Rumor] Apple To Issue New Software Update For iPhone 12 To Bring Its Radiation Down To Acceptable Levels (wccftech.com)

To prevent the iPhone 12 from being banned in France, Apple is reportedly working to release a software update that is said to bring down the radiation levels to accommodate the request of French regulators. Before being officially released back in 2020, it was reported that Apple knew about this problem and instructed its...

engityra,

All radiation (x-rays included), radio waves, and visible light are on the EM spectrum. It's just the wavelength that differentiates them.

What are some commonly known facts that are too bizarre for you to believe to be true?

For me it is the fact that our blood contains iron. I earlier used to believe the word stood for some ‘organic element’ since I couldn’t accept we had metal flowing through our supposed carbon-based bodies, till I realized that is where the taste and smell of blood comes from.

engityra,

The hormones really carry you through. Lol. And at least it's relatively short with a positive end goal.
