Another nurse’s aid refuses flu shot

The National Post published an article today about a nurse’s aide who got sent home for refusing to get the flu shot. She said she was one of more than a dozen workers, sent home Tuesday from the extended-care facility where she works in Medicine Hat, Alberta. She claims to have trigeminal neuralgia, which is disorder characterized by episodes of intense pain in the face, originating from the trigeminal nerve. She is afraid that if she gets the shot it will cause the disorder to flare up. This would seem to be an understandable concern.

The article doesn't expand upon the reasoning for the other 11 health professionals, but click here to read her story.

It might be interesting to note, some of the comments that were posted below the story as well. Although there is quite a bit of bashing going on, one of the commenter's who identified herself as a RN said:

"As an RN I am offended by comments that suggest refusing the shot translates to a crappy nurse. Until peer reviewed research confirms I am a risk to patients, I will NOT get the shot and I am happy to stay home without pay. What other profession demands the worker to knowingly chemically alter their body with potentially insidious risks? Anyone care to know how the "shot" is made? Based on predictions they throw a cocktail together. EVERY year they have missed the mark, yet they still bully workers into having it. For you know-it-all, believe everything you hear people, I remind you of one of thousands of medical blunders... the thalidomide tragedy - a "wonder drug" endorsed by physicians, encouraged by health authorities and permitted to kill and deform babies for 10 years before discontinued. The drug was developed and used in Nazi prison camps and fed to Canadians post war. Minus the prison camp -- is there a difference in the mandatory imposition of these two drugs?"

And someone else who worked as an RN said:

"Perhaps the general public should sit back and wonder why the majority of us front line health care workers do not get the vacccine? Can so many intelligent people with nothing to gain from Big Pharma be wrong?"

There are tons of other comments; some bashing these two -- others spouting their own agendas, but father down; you stop seeing any professional responses. They have made their point, and regardless of the ignorant barrage that follows, it doesn't diminish the fact that two health professionals, whose pockets are NOT lined in gold from Big Pharma or receive kick-backs from Health Canada, have shared their knowledge of the dangers of vaccinations.

On January 15, I published an article on this site, Dr. Maurice Ralph Hilleman, father of Vaccinology, issues warning about Vaccines. If you haven't read it, you can click here now to read it.

This site cannot offer you medical advice. All of the information published here isn't to take the place of a doctor, and is only to give you something to think about. But when the second professional says, " Perhaps the general public should sit back and wonder why the majority of us front line health care workers do not get the vacccine?" -- it certainly makes one wonder why they would offer this information when they don't have anything to gain from it, and risk losing their jobs by going public with it.

We are not alone: ‘Alien life’ discovered

Did you ever stop and think, we might not be alone in the universe? Sure you have. People over fifty start to question their existence -- many turn to religion; hoping there is a better life after this one. But what if life didn't start here? Who says it did?

Apparently a "top" British Scientist has found life forms in a meteorite that crashed to Earth.

But then, the article goes on to  report, " The scientist is a well known champion of the “panspermia hypothesis” – which suggests the first seeds of life were deposited on our planet from outer space 3,800 million years ago."

Not sure that I share those views, but click here to read the article. It certainly doesn't seem like intelligent life....

Irish county let’s drunks drive

Imagine being at the pub with your friends, and the bartender says, the soberest fellow needs to drive home. That's pretty well what this new motion means passed by the Kerry County Council. It sympathizes with those who live in rural areas, and have no other way of getting home. The motion, tabled by Councillor Danny Healy-Rae, passed by a vote of 5-3.

Of course they prefer it if the drive limited his consumption to three drinks. Read the rest of the story...

Outsource your job and stay home

It isn't any secret. Outsourcing work to other countries where the value of the dollar is greater than here at home, has a lot of North American countries sending work to places like India. They can get the same work done by office employees there, for a fraction of the cost of what it would cost here. I suppose since the foreign companies who get this work are contractors, home companies can save a lot of money on the costs by not paying into Employment Insurance, Health benefits, vacation time, etc.

Okay, now let's forget about companies outsourcing.... What if an employee at a local company decided to outsource his own job? Does this sound far-fetched? Maybe; maybe not. That's exactly what one developer did. He goofed off at his desk, and hired someone from China to do his work for him at one-fifth the wages he received.

Think I'll start applying for over fifty jobs 😉 There is good money to be made until you get caught!

Hysteria ensues after fish latches onto man’s arm, refuses to let go…

A fellow in Florida was leaning over a small wharf with his hand just above the water. A video by the CTV.ca News Staff - Published Tuesday, Jan. 15 2013, 1:35 PM EST, can be seen here.

After this... I'm sure he is crossing "fishing in Florida" off of his bucket list.
