This is at the end of an article talking about something else, but it deserves it own highlight:
My favorite thing is when healthcare organizations try and control and restrict social media. As many institutions have learned, that’s impossible to do. Instead, it’s much more effective to educate and inform people on their use of social media. The best reason you should educate and inform as opposed to control and restrict is the message it sends to your employees. The former sends a message of trust and respect while the later does the opposite.
U.S. pilot scares off Iranians with ‘Top Gun’-worthy stunt: ‘You really ought to go home’ – Washington Times
In what only can be described as a scene out of Tom Cruise’s “Top Gun,” Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, Air Force chief of staff, describes how F-22 stealth jets scared off Iranian jets from a U.S. drone flying in international airspace.
Click through to see what happened. I’ll be the in-cockpit tape of that gets out someday…and it will be cool.
Two other thoughts: are we now riding shotgun on drones (aren’t the drones so we don’t have to endanger pilots), and/or, was this bait to see what Iranian air intercept does?
Our Government is out of money. That’s given. Related but unrelated, our Government=Things we do together.
The Army Corps of Engineers recently decided that plowing Govt. Park access fees back into the parks through non-profits is verboten, because, get this, the money isn’t going into the US Treasury.
No thought to what makes the parks work. No thought to what the NonProfits (that’s Washington for sucker-bait) put into the parks, or what the Federal version of park running and maintenance will cost (that’ll be way way more than non-profits did it for). Or the park non-profit employees who are now out of a job.
This smacks of bureaucracy run amok, remote pencil pushers running roughshod over local policies that actually serve the constituents, i.e., normal people who like parks.
I’ll call my Congressperson tomorrow. Perhaps sense will prevail, but I have doubts.
Now, about that Government takeover of healthcare, still think that’s a terrific idea?
Wait for it….

The Defikopter is a UAV that can be activated by a smartphone app to automatically take to the skies and drop a defibrillator to medical personnel on the ground, shaving precious seconds from the time it takes to receive treatment for cardiac arrest.
The idea for the drone comes from Definetz, a non-profit group dedicated to preventing deaths due to heart failure.
Interesting idea. Won’t work here in the Land o’ the Lawsuit.
One year ago this month, under cover of night, fifteen Taliban, dressed as American soldiers, snuck onto one of the largest air bases in Afghanistan. What followed was a bloody confrontation highlighting a startling security lapse, with hundreds of millions in matériel lost in a matter of hours—the worst day for American airpower since the Tet Offensive. Yet the attack faded from view before anyone could figure out what went wrong. For the first time, Matthieu Aikins relives those heart-pounding moments and offers an extraordinary account of the Battle of Bastion
Amazingly well written story of close combat by air wing Marines.
Let the man explain.
No, seriously. Let me explain . . .
Good on someone.

Medical sticker-shock, and one mans’ remedy.
By JEFFREY A. SINGEREvery so often I have an extraordinary and surprising experience with a patient—the kind that makes us both say, "Wow, we’ve learned something from this." One such moment occurred recently.
Gomerblog is killing it these days.
LOS ANGELES, CA – Thursday night the 197,788th annual rare-disease awards, formally known as the common disease awards, brought the house down at the Staples Center.
There’s a weird risk factor. What’s AB putting in their beers?*
Though Budweiser has 9.1 percent of the national beer market, it represented 15 percent of the of the E.R. “market.” The disparity was even more pronounced for Steel Reserve. It has only .8 percent of the market nationally, but accounted for 14.7 percent of the E.R. market. In all, Steel Reserve, Colt 45, Bud Ice, and another malt liquor, King Cobra, account for only 2.4 percent of the U.S. beer market, but accounted for 46 percent of the beer consumed by E.R. patients.
*Clearly a joke, don’t sue.
