Government Controlled Health Care

Physician Burnout Widespread, Especially Among Those Midcareer, Report Says
About half of all doctors surveyed said they would be willing to take a substantial pay cut to achieve a better work-life balance.
Physicians between the ages of 40 and 54 experience a higher rate of burnout than younger or older physicians, according to a recent survey of more than 15,000 physicians who cited administrative tasks and work hours as key drivers of their stress.

Big Pharma and health care corporations along with insurance have changed the personal relationship between you and your doctor. Now rarely do you get to see the same doctor over the years as they are always moving and changing jobs. The paperwork has gotten out of hand as more than half of what you pay for health care goes to the middleman. Drug companies bribe doctors to push their drugs as you also get bombed on TV with their marketing. It is no longer about your health or the doctor’s health, it is about MONEY.

Medications Change Who We Are

They’ve been linked to road rage, pathological gambling, and complicated acts of fraud. Some make us less neurotic, and others may even shape our social relationships. It turns out many ordinary medications don’t just affect our bodies – they affect our brains. Why? And should there be warnings on packets?

Most people go to the doctor to get healed. But doctors only mask the synonyms with drugs while the body heals itself. Pain and discomfort are normal human warnings that something is not right. Best to obey the body signs rather than mask it.
Ironically, by this point the patient was so cantankerous that he flatly ignored the doctors’ advice. “He swore roundly, stormed out of the office and stopped taking the drug immediately,” she says. Two weeks later, he had his personality back.

Others have not been so lucky. Over the years, Golomb has collected reports from patients across the United States – tales of broken marriages, destroyed careers, and a surprising number of men who have come unnervingly close to murdering their wives. In almost every case, the symptoms began when they started taking statins, then promptly returned to normal when they stopped; one man repeated this cycle five times before he realised what was going on.

Finite

Our hectic, on-demand lifestyles rely upon allocating finite sets of resources to constantly changing numbers of people. As this task grows ever harder, it will require solutions to a little-known mathematical riddle. Over the last few decades, researchers have developed a range of pretty effective mathematical solutions that can allocate resources across a variety of industries and scenarios so they can attempt to keep up with the daily demands our lives place on them. But when an allocation made at one time affects subsequent allocations, the problem becomes dynamic, and the passing of time must be considered as part of the equation. This throws a mathematical spanner in the works, requiring these solutions to now take into account the changing and uncertain nature of the real world.

A solution includes either finite population or expanding into the universe.

New Start

2020 good vision needs to see clearly a new start again for all those failures we have gained experience. Not to repeat the same mistakes and improve on the next try till we have success. The world will always be in a mess because of new people ignorant of past failures learning on their own. The numbers are too great for one individual to have much effect but team work brings a greater result than a sum of its parts. Many in power throughout history fear individuals forming teams that locate the information needed prove the leaders personal greed and thirst for power over others. We are only human so keep an eye on too much accumulated power that takes advantage of the human condition.
