Think how best to apply this weekend.
Local local local.
One of the Four New Boxes.
The times, they are a-changin’…
Elsewhere, too, in all likelihood.
There’s gonna be a fight.
And the beat goes on:
All of those damned extremist men need to be locked up.
And Mike Bloomberg is just the guy to do it.
Pass the box wine, Gretchen.
While you’re at it, burn 90%+ of the US Code.
And at least 90% of everything institutional implemented over the past 60 years.
What would you call that?
A good start.
Since the death of his wife last year, the Gates of Vienna proprietor has carried on with his peerless international coverage of the Great Replacement.
A more-perfect example of another of the Four New Boxes cannot be found.
If you can afford to do so, consider giving.
Consider the above in light of this piece:
And this one as well:
Read and heed.
As my former boss, now on Senior status in one of Bigtown’s Federal judicial circuits, taught me when I was a wee sprite of a lad:
“Cops put people in jail. Prosecutors put people in state prison for life.”
Do you know the accountability information on the prosecutors and staff in your jurisdiction?
From over the transom:
I wanted to let you know about a medical class coming up soon. Although there’s not much to do about the coronavirus directly, it’s important for people to realize that especially if the ERs are clogged up with sick folks, you don’t want to go near them if you don’t have to and it’s quite uncertain what their staffing levels will be. Therefore, it’s timely to consider how to prepare to treat the multitude of medical situations that can arise when conventional resources are unavailable, overwhelmed, or not functioning.
Folks with a designated medical person should consider sending him. Topics to be covered include
Hyperthermia, hypothermia & frostbite
Head, Ear, Eye, Nose, Throat, Skin
Animal & insect Bites
Our plans for the upcoming Advanced Wilderness Life Support (AWLS) class to occur on May 1-3, 2020 are proceeding, and we are very hopeful that you or a colleague will be able to fill one of the remaining spaces. If you previously have been certified in AWLS, recall that it requires renewal within four years in order to maintain certification.
Previous classes have trained participants ranging from new EMTs to practicing physicians, from firemen to law enforcement medics; all were uniform in their enthusiasm for the course’s content, instructors, and facilities. To quote a few of them,
“All instructors were definitely subject matter experts, very approachable, and provided more than one way to handle situations in the austere environment.”
“The simulations were a great way to reinforce the concepts–the best part of the class.”
“Very well organized! Great venue! Very knowledgeable instructors–enthusiastic and interesting! No criticisms! Hope you do this again!”
Yet again, we will include training on hemorrhage evaluation and control, including the use of tourniquets and hemostatic dressings, consistent with the Stop-the-Bleed campaign developed by the American College of Surgeons with the input of the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC).
The Advanced Wilderness Life Support (AWLS) curriculum was developed at the University of Utah and conveys 20.5 hours of AMA category I credit to physicians and is pre-approved for full credit by the Alabama Department of Public Health Office of EMS for all state license-holders.
Regardless of weather, the class will go forward at Ruffner Mountain (http://ruffnermountain.org/), a wonderful facility very convenient to Birmingham that is still remote enough to add realism to the field simulations. Presentations will occur indoors, and five meals are included in the price of the course. Many of our instructors will be returning, as will a number of previous course attendees, eager to help and to refresh their skills.
We hope to see you in in a few weeks! Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
