I think that I'd have to return to college or retire before I could keep up with the pace you guys set. ;) Or maybe I'll just get fired one of these days because I spend too much time on the Internet during work. :eek: :eek:

Ah yes, well the answer to that (at least the one I'm saving up in case it happens to me) is that I spend a lot less time on here than Miffy in the next office spends crying on the phone to Mummy/sister/best friend about her man troubles, or than the boys down the hall spend playing corridor cricket, and it's a lot less disruptive too ... unless Cilla or someone posts a locker room confrontation in which case I admit the guffaws coming from my office are probably fairly hard to ignore ;)

Subject: THE TRUE STORY OF HELL :devil:

The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington

chemistry mid-term exam. The answer by one student was so "profound"

that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is,

of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.

Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs

heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law

(gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some

variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we

need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate

at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a

soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls

are leaving.

As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different

Religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state

that if you are not a member of their religion, you will

go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since

people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all

souls go to Hell.

With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of

souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of

change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order

for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of

Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:

1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls

enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase

until all Hell breaks loose.

2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in

Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes

over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman

year that, "it will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you", and

take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number

2 must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has

already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has

frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more

souls and is therefore, extinct...leaving only Heaven thereby proving

the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa

kept shouting "Oh my God."

THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A"

You're Susan

Some people are nice deep down, but your niceness sits right on the surface, apparent to all. You're down-to-earth and approachable, with a thoughtful side that makes you the moral centre of your own little Wisteria Lane. Like Susan, you notice what's going on with the people around you and are concerned about their well-being. That said, you're not some doe-eyed pushover: you're savvy to people who aren't telling the truth and you've got a scheme or two up your sleeve when you need to be sneaky.



Probably your biggest fault is that you allow your insecurities to chip away at your self worth. Everybody's had failed relationships, made bad judgements and been locked out of their home completely naked (well, maybe not that last one). It's not how hard you fall that's important; it's how you keep getting back up.

Huh. I dunno. I've never watched this show.

Pharmacists' Rights at Front Of New Debate
By Rob Stein, Washington Post Staff Writer

Some pharmacists across the country are refusing to fill prescriptions for birth control and morning-after pills, saying that dispensing the medications violates their personal moral or religious beliefs.

The trend has opened a new front in the nation's battle over reproductive rights, sparking an intense debate over the competing rights of pharmacists to refuse to participate in something they consider repugnant and a woman's right to get medications her doctor has prescribed. It has also triggered pitched political battles in statehouses across the nation as politicians seek to pass laws either to protect pharmacists from being penalized -- or force them to carry out their duties.

"This is a very big issue that's just beginning to surface," said Steven H. Aden of the Christian Legal Society's Center for Law and Religious Freedom in Annandale, which defends pharmacists. "More and more pharmacists are becoming aware of their right to conscientiously refuse to pass objectionable medications across the counter. We are on the very front edge of a wave that's going to break not too far down the line."

An increasing number of clashes are occurring in drugstores across the country. Pharmacists often risk dismissal or other disciplinary action to stand up for their beliefs, while shaken teenage girls and women desperately call their doctors, frequently late at night, after being turned away by sometimes-lecturing men and women in white coats.

"There are pharmacists who will only give birth control pills to a woman if she's married. There are pharmacists who mistakenly believe contraception is a form of abortion and refuse to prescribe it to anyone," said Adam Sonfield of the Alan Guttmacher Institute in New York, which tracks reproductive issues. "There are even cases of pharmacists holding prescriptions hostage, where they won't even transfer it to another pharmacy when time is of the essence."

That is what happened to Kathleen Pulz and her husband, who panicked when the condom they were using broke. Their fear really spiked when the Walgreens pharmacy down the street from their home in Milwaukee refused to fill an emergency prescription for the morning-after pill.

"I couldn't believe it," said Pulz, 44, who with her husband had long ago decided they could not afford a fifth child. "How can they make that decision for us? I was outraged. At the same time, I was sad that we had to do this. But I was scared. I didn't know what we were going to do."

Supporters of pharmacists' rights see the trend as a welcome expression of personal belief. Women's groups see it as a major threat to reproductive rights and one of the latest manifestations of the religious right's growing political reach -- this time into the neighborhood pharmacy.

"This is another indication of the current political atmosphere and climate," said Rachel Laser of the National Women's Law Center in Washington. "It's outrageous. It's sex discrimination. It prevents access to a basic form of health care for women. We're going back in time."

The issue could intensify further if the Food and Drug Administration (news - web sites) approves the sale of the Plan B morning-after pill without a prescription -- a controversial step that would likely make pharmacists the primary gatekeeper.

The question of health care workers refusing to provide certain services first emerged among doctors, nurses and other health care workers over abortions. The trend began to spread to pharmacists with the approval of the morning-after pill and physician-assisted suicide in Oregon, with support from such organizations as the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Pharmacists for Life International, which claims 1,600 members on six continents. Its members are primarily in the United States, Canada and Britain.

"Our group was founded with the idea of returning pharmacy to a healing-only profession. What's been going on is the use of medication to stop human life. That violates the ideal of the Hippocratic oath that medical practitioners should do no harm," said Karen L. Brauer, president of Pharmacists for Life, who was fired from a Kmart pharmacy in Delhi, Ohio, for refusing to fill birth control prescriptions.

No one knows exactly how often that is happening, but cases have been reported across the country, including in California, Washington, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Texas, New Hampshire, Ohio and North Carolina. Advocates on both sides say the refusals appear to be spreading, often surfacing only in the rare instances when women file complaints.

Pharmacists are regulated by state laws and can face disciplinary action from licensing boards. But the only case that has gotten that far involves Neil T. Noesen, who in 2002 refused to fill a University of Wisconsin student's birth control pill prescription at a Kmart in Menomonie, Wis., or transfer the prescription elsewhere. An administrative judge last month recommended Noesen be required to take ethics classes, alert future employers to his beliefs and pay what could be as much as $20,000 to cover the costs of the legal proceedings. The state pharmacy board will decide whether to impose that penalty next month.

"He's a devout Roman Catholic and believes participating in any action that inhibits or prohibits human life is a sin," said Aden of the Christian Legal Society. "The rights of pharmacists like him should be respected."

Wisconsin is one of at least 11 states considering "conscience clause" laws that would protect pharmacists such as Noesen. Four states already have laws that specifically allow pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions that violate their beliefs. At the same time, at least four states are considering laws that would explicitly require pharmacists to fill all prescriptions.

The American Pharmacists Association recently reaffirmed its policy that pharmacists can refuse to fill prescriptions as long as they make sure customers can get their medications some other way.

"We don't have a profession of robots. We have a profession of humans. We have to acknowledge that individual pharmacists have individual beliefs," said Susan C. Winckler, the association's vice president for policy and communications. "What we suggest is that they identify those situations ahead of time and have an alternative system set up so the patient has access to their therapy."

The alternative system can include making sure another pharmacist is on duty who can take over or making sure there is another pharmacy nearby willing to fill the prescription, Winckler said. "The key is that it should be seamless and avoids a conflict between the pharmacist's right to step away and the patient's right to obtain their medication," she said.

Brauer, of Pharmacists for Life, defends the right of pharmacists not only to decline to fill prescriptions themselves but also to refuse to refer customers elsewhere or transfer prescriptions.

"That's like saying, 'I don't kill people myself but let me tell you about the guy down the street who does.' What's that saying? 'I will not off your husband, but I know a buddy who will?' It's the same thing," said Brauer, who now works at a hospital pharmacy.

Large pharmacy chains, including Walgreens, Wal-Mart and CVS, have instituted similar policies that try to balance pharmacists' and customers' rights.

"We obviously do have pharmacists with individual moral and ethical beliefs. When it does happen, the pharmacist is asked to notify the manager that they have decided not to fill the prescription, and the manager has the obligation to make sure the customer has access to the prescription by another means," said Tiffany Bruce, a spokeswoman for Walgreens. "We have to respect the pharmacist, but we have to also respect the right of the person to receive the prescription."

Women's advocates say such policies are impractical, especially late at night in emergency situations involving the morning-after pill, which must be taken within 72 hours. Even in non-urgent cases, poor women have a hard time getting enough time off work or money to go from one pharmacy to another. Young women, who are often frightened and unsure of themselves, may simply give up when confronted by a judgmental pharmacist.

"What is a woman supposed to do in rural America, in places where there may only be one pharmacy?" asked Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, which is launching a campaign today to counter the trend. "It's a slap in the face to women."

By the time Suzanne Richards, 21, finally got another pharmacy to fill her morning-after pill prescription -- after being rejected by a drive-through Brooks Pharmacy in Laconia, N.H., one late Saturday night in September -- the 72 hours had long passed.

"When he told me he wouldn't fill it, I just pulled over in the parking lot and started crying," said Richards, a single mother of a 3-year-old who runs her own cleaning service. "I just couldn't believe it. I was just trying to be responsible."

In the end, Richards turned out not to be pregnant, and Pulz was able to obtain her prescription last June directly from her doctor, though she does not think she was pregnant, either.

"I was lucky," Pulz said. "I can sympathize with someone who feels strongly and doesn't want to be involved. But they should just step out of the way and not interfere with someone else's decision. It's just not right."

The scary thing about that article, to me, is that it might open doors for people of other professions to start taking matters into their own hands as well. And it's sort of a weird discussion anyway because I, somewhat, agree with this:

Brauer, of Pharmacists for Life, defends the right of pharmacists not only to decline to fill prescriptions themselves but also to refuse to refer customers elsewhere or transfer prescriptions.

"That's like saying, 'I don't kill people myself but let me tell you about the guy down the street who does.' What's that saying? 'I will not off your husband, but I know a buddy who will?' It's the same thing," said Brauer, who now works at a hospital pharmacy.

If somebody believe strongly enough in this to refuse to fill a prescription, why would they just refer them to somebody else? That's sort of defeating the purpose if you ask me. Having said that, birth control pills aren't illegal and women have, and should continue to have, access to them. It's a personal choice, one that should be made by the woman, not by her pharmacist. And there's also, as the article stated, the issue of people living in rural towns. There are only two pharmacists in my town so what would we do if they decided that they weren't filling prescriptions? I suppose we'd all take turns driving two hours to the nearest city :shrug:

I think that's really really wrong and sets a very dangerous precident. When you train to be a doctor (and I would have thought any other medical profession) you sign an oath that says you will treat anybody regardless of what they've done, what religion, faith, background they have. You just cannot be allowed to be judgmental.

I would be mortified if I went to a pharmacist needing help and was turned away because they didn't agree with my decision to take a certain type of medication. I think they should face disciplinary action. If you're going to let your religious or moral issues interfere like that then I think they're in the wrong job.

If the medicine in the Pharmacy had to be left to the own choice and belief of the pharmacist, that is just ridiculous. They're here to provide a service, not to influence their patients on their behaviour and their beliefs!!!

"Our group was founded with the idea of returning pharmacy to a healing-only profession. What's been going on is the use of medication to stop human life."

I read the article for the second time and this jumped out at me. A very naive statement imo. Birth control pills, apart from their obvious and primary use, can be used to treat a number of things from irregular cycles to severe PMS to acne so it's not fair to take away that healing aspect from the people who need it.

I also bet these are the exact same people who complain about the "burden" single mothers put on the state. :rolleyes And yet by refusing to prescribe the pill they're not giving young women the opportunity to stop themselves getting pregnant

Totally agree with you there. These people may think they're helping but they're just doing a whole lot of damage :( Like it or not, today's teenagers are going to have sex, that's just the way it is. The best thing we as a society can do is not to fight that, but rather to inform them as best we can so that they know all risks associated with having sex, be it pregnancy or the much more serious, imo, STD's. The position these pharmacists are taking is almost like preaching abstinence ; it just doesn't work today.

Angele
03-28-2005, 09:26 PM
I recently read an article, which I can't find atm, that reported of a university study that found that teenagers who pledged abstinence until marriage were as likely to get STD's as those who didn't. I think there was only 1% difference in the numbers which, in this kind of study/survery, basically amounts to nothing. And this study just takes into account the teenagers who have pledged abstinence, not the teenagers that were thought abstinence but didn't sign a pledge. It's pretty scary imo because if teenagers who were thought abstinence and believed strongly enough in it to take pledges are still getting infected as often as other teenagers, then what does that lead one to think about teenagers who were thought only abstinence, but don't believe in it?

Yasmine
03-28-2005, 09:42 PM
:wavey: everyone! a shame I didn't stay earlier to read that very interesting discussion ;) I definitely am with you Jess on the fact that usually the kind of people who shout their beliefs are usually inconsistent. They would pledge against the pill and other contraceptive methods but would be the first one complaining about the government giving money to single mums. :rolleyes: And angele you're right the problem is the mentality of people sometime doesn't follow the evolution of the teenagers :p... Great posts girls anyway ;) no more to add :)

Angele
03-28-2005, 10:11 PM
That is indeed very, very scary. At some point people in power need to look beyond their own beliefs to do what is really best for the people that they serve. When I had sex education I was thought that abstinence is the only method that is 100% safe however I was thought about condoms and the birth control pill as well.

That's not the best analogy. Lawyers who are uncomfortable with defending accused criminals become prosecutors, and that's a legitimate choice.

Lisbeth
03-29-2005, 12:42 AM
Yeah, I believe that's true in some jurisdictions, though here it is virtually impossible to become a prosecutor without having previous experience, which is almost always in either private defence practice or legal aid.

I should have said "Defence Lawyers against crime". The adversarial system (which is imperfect but not as imperfect as any alternative invented to date in guaranteeing a fair trial) simply would not work if someone didn't defend the accused ;)

Williams Sisters Offer Preteens Advice

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. - Embracing their status as role models, Serena and Venus Williams (news - web sites) have written a book with advice for preteens on subjects such as money and dating.

Regarding the latter, their recommendation: Don't rush a crush.

"We both really have a lot to say about that," Venus Williams said Wednesday with a laugh.

Titled "Venus and Serena: Serving From the Hip: 10 Rules for Living, Loving, and Winning," the book is targeted for 9- to 12-year-olds.

"It's a great book for teenage girls who deal with different issues," Serena Williams (news - web sites) said. "Growing up, I would have loved to have had such a positive role model to look up to and try to be like and try to emulate. We love having that opportunity to say, `Look, you can be like us, you can be successful and at the same time have high morals and high self-esteem and be a very nice person at the end of the day.'"

The sisters, who are in Key Biscayne for the Nasdaq-100 Open, wrote the book with Hilary Beard.

"It's like we're having a conversation back and forth," Serena said. "We wrote it with someone, but we wrote it."

Oh Deux :haha:

I agree with you 100%. I quite like Venus actually, she seems like a sweet girl. Another thing about Serena that I don't like is how she never gives credit to anybody, she always beats herself, always plays like crap, etc... I wouldn't want my kids to have that kind of attitude.

Posted on Tue, Mar. 29, 2005

Happier the weight is over (excerpt from Miami Herald)

Taylor Dent continued his stellar play since dropping 16 pounds as he upset fifth-ranked Guillermo Coria in straight sets.

BY SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN
The big guy is smaller, but his conquests are growing.

American Taylor Dent, down 16 pounds since the U.S. Open in September, can put another notch on his top 10 hit list. Monday, 33rd-ranked Dent defeated fifth-ranked Guillermo Coria of Argentina 6-3, 6-4 at the NASDAQ-100 Open.`I mean, for me, it's always an effort to lose weight, get quicker. I don't really spend much time in the gym, although I'm going to start just to prevent injuries.

2) Une and Deux are on Oprah this afternoon.

Between that, the book and the TV show, we're being inundated with the Preds :hearts: How lucky can one nation get? :hearts:

it's amazing what the media do to make us hate or adore players :rolleyes: I didn't like the Williams sisters until I stopped hearing about them, and until I saw Venus in Antwerp last february, so much more fun than what the commentators make of her. And it's not like I saw her in the US, I saw her play Kim at home in Belgium... she loved the atmosphere, was a great entertainer and was very nice towards her opponent. My point is, watching tennis live or in front of the tv without commentators just the croud, is much better :p

Found a picture of my prom dress online, although not in the right color :mad: Ok so my dress is the dress that is shown in blue, except that mine is white. The sequins on my dress are silver so they aren't as noticable. My dress pretty much looks like the second dress, except for the difference in bodice details!

:wavey: all.

I don't hate either Williams by any means, but Serena completely perplexes me. One minute she's talking about how marvellous her family is and the next she brings out the violins and claims she never had a role model ... um, what about Oracene (a very classy lady) and four seemingly well adjusted older sisters kid? It's a bit like that line "I've had to struggle all my life" [since I grew up in a middle class family and didn't get a multi million dollar deal till I was 8 ...]. I think sometimes the line between Serena the person and Serena the actress gets lost and she just says the first thing which comes into her head. Hmm, wonder which parent she gets that from ;)

I'm watching the WSOP right now, and Annie Duke just knocked out her big brother Howard Lederer. She was visibly upset, and one of the commentators said something to the effect of, "This is how the Williams sisters feel."

This quote is for you Beebs :p

"Well, as far as my game, I think, you know, I had some of my best results when I was actually my heaviest and arguably my slowest weight. For my game, for me to be successful, the bottom line is I have to be serving well, hitting the spots on my serves, and volleying very firm. That's just the bottom line. If I'm holding serve, I'm going to eke out a break here and there. But having said that, you can't argue that me getting faster doesn't make the game easier; I mean, it's going to make the game easier."

Yeah, they showed it all live on ESPN. PN/Henman is next on ESPN2, and DH/Dent is tonight. They didn't mention anything about Kim, and I don't even know if her match is this afternoon or tonight, so I guess they're not showing her.

I have no tennis coverage so am struggling to follow Miami. Though either Williams getting knocked out is normally good.
