lol,molly,we gave up on the big tree when our boy got older,now we have a pre lit,pre potter 4 footer and a small folding table for it.i yank it out of the box,mrs adds some bows and balls,i plug it in and we are done in under 10 minutes

easy decorating for me this year - being away from home -- 4' prelit tree with lots of baubles, wreath with 5 picks in it and a candle in the middle that was already on the coffee table, one large and 4 smaller poinsettas from costco -- took me all of 2 hours, shopping included!

oh
11:19 am

yikes a physics question on saturday morning..
11:19 am

"spin" of elementary particles (like fermions and bosons) is a quantum property, so any mental images we have of it are for entertainment purposes only :-)

kje

ok
11:22 am
bichon

gothaab, if you have a physics question ask uusue
11:22 am
uusue2

however, we call it spin because it adds to the total angular momentum just as if they were really little balls spinning on their axes (which they are not)
11:22 am
godthaab

By angular movement do you mean the direction they take when they collide?
11:22 am
cosdem

shh school's in session and professor sue's talking/
11:22 am
uusue2

mmmmm, not exactly
11:23 am
godthaab

Then.....
11:23 am
uusue2

angular momentum for big things is a measure of how fast they are spinning
11:23 am
rururocks

kje is all business today
11:23 am
godthaab

But they are not really spinning?
11:23 am

whee..crossy loves the brainy wimmens;)

conservation of angular momentum is what makes a skater spin faster when she brings her arms close to her body

he7?
11:24 am
uusue2

and angular momentum is conserved in interactions of elementary particles too but only if we assign them "spin" so they have some internal angular momentum of their own
11:24 am
bichon

and I know that sue, am a big figure skating fan. The good triple jumpers are the ones strong enough to keep their arms pulled in when they are jumping

*wonders what crossie would think of bacon flavored women?*
11:25 am
crosshair

not sure ruru,my mrs refuses to wear the bacon scented perfume
11:25 am
uusue2

but as far as we know elementary particles are points, with no internal structure and no size, so it doesn't make sense to talk about them actually spinning
11:25 am
jesdraggon

*suspects crossy would think "DELICIOUS!"*
11:25 am
rururocks

LOL
11:26 am
rururocks

I suspect he'd scrambled those eggs
11:26 am
godthaab

So, we talk about them spinning but they really don't. We are talking about their internal properties?
11:27 am
uusue2

yes, exactly!!!
11:27 am
godthaab

So what is a definition of a half spin?
11:27 am
bichon

hep, relating to the liver
11:27 am
uusue2

the spin 1/2 refers to the magnitude of this internal property, it's measured in units of Planck's constant
11:27 am
bichon

he 7*
11:27 am
Good Enough

excellent dual chat going here! what a well rounded group!
11:27 am
crosshair

All elementary particles of a given kind have the same spin quantum number, an important part of the quantum state of a particle. When combined with the spin-statistics theorem, the spin of electrons results in the Pauli exclusion principle, which in turn underlies the periodic table of chemical elements. The spin direction (also called spin for short) of a particle is an important intrinsic degree of freedom...wow..crossy just hurt his brain...
11:28 am

How does the Pauli exclusion principle relate to the periodic table?

stupid... exceptional.... take your pick
11:30 am
jesdraggon

whoohoo! thermometer just rolled up into double digits! heat wave :)
11:30 am
uusue2

particles with spin 1/2 have to be in different quantum states - this means that if you have more than one of them in an atom they have to have different properties
11:30 am
cosdem

25 degrees here. practically a sorcher compared to last week
11:30 am
crosshair

lol jes,we are at minus 3 c
11:30 am
rururocks

how about exceptionally stupid?
11:31 am
uusue2

so when you keep adding electrons to atoms they can't all have the same energy - hence different energy levels and orbitals, and the periodic table
11:31 am
godthaab

Ah...
11:31 am
godthaab

ah...

But we have to do more work with EHR--creating a Clinical Visit Summary at the end of every visit. And then some kids need their school PE forms completed.
2:29 pm
Scrabbler

What I need to do in a 15 min visit really would take 45-60 min if I want to educate a kid and parent.
2:30 pm
bubba218

One of the meaningful use criteria is that all patient who are seen for an office visit 99213, etc, are required to receive a visit summary, even if they don't want one. A waste of paper and time for the office staff and physicin.
2:31 pm
Scrabbler

I was just told by our ofc manager that my only "fail" with "meaningful use" is those visit summaries.
2:32 pm
Scrabbler

I don't finish notes until lunch hr or in the evening at home.
2:32 pm
bubba218

I have already certified my juse, but it still requires that you do this seemeingly endless paperwork.
2:32 pm
bubba218

I am always taking home charts.
2:32 pm
jesdraggon

maybe they don't want it...but i'm a HUGE fan of giving people written summary and instructions, so when they call back a month later having not done a thing I told them to, they can't say I didn't give them the info! :)
2:32 pm
Scrabbler

when did you start EHR?
2:33 pm
bubba218

January 2011, certified in April 2011
2:33 pm
Scrabbler

It also helps when someone other than the mother brings the kid to the ofc.
2:34 pm
Scrabbler

The best result of EHR is not having to decipher my partners' handwriting.
2:35 pm
bubba218

I always wrote my note while seeing the patint, now I just take notes and do the note into the EHR between patient, at lunch, at home, inthe hospital, wherever.
2:35 pm
lynxxx

Interesting conversation to come in all, most doctprs/specialists here all swing round to their computers at the end of the consultation. Also handy as one of the places I go is a clinic so don't always seem the same doctor
2:36 pm
jesdraggon

hi lynxxx :)
2:36 pm
lynxxx

sorry about all the typos
2:36 pm
lynxxx

Morning Jess and all
2:36 pm
bubba218

I find it is much easier to review a chart, then to reveiw notes in an EHR.
2:37 pm
Scrabbler

I find the computer distracting during the visit--I am trying to do what I need to in the computer and fix typos and make eye contact with kids and families.
2:38 pm
Scrabbler

Bottom A and R are finally grey. 100 to go.
2:38 pm
bubba218

I feel the same, the computer distradcts me from peaking to the patient. The patient feels that one is distracted if they are typing while they are speaking.
2:38 pm
bubba218

peaking =speaking
2:38 pm
jesdraggon

we don't have computers in the exam room...i put things in afterwards. I type pretty quickly though.
2:39 pm
Scrabbler

Yep, so I write notes on paper and do work at home. I would rather move along with patients than finish my notes between patients and have the families wait.
2:39 pm
lynxxx

Not meaning to be rude but is it an age thing too? Younger ones are brought up with the computer as their right hand whereas us older people find it more alien. Mind you I have been using PCs for some 30 years and am old myself
2:39 pm
bubba218

Due to the requirement ot send Rx's electronically, I must use the computer in the treatment room.
2:39 pm
jesdraggon

I have not felt like my dr was ignoring me for the computer when i've been at clinics that have them in exam rooms though; any more than I would if they were looking up/making notes in a paper file anwyay
2:40 pm
Scrabbler

I did not take typing/keyboarding but I am pretty fast.
2:41 pm
bubba218

I'm sure it is a generational thing. But good notes, that are handwritten or dictated I find to be more complete then computer generated notes. Computer notes tend to be more of the copy andpste kind, when applicable, because it is faster
2:41 pm
lynxxx

I react the same way too Jess, not an issue for me either
2:42 pm
jesdraggon

heh. my handwriting SUCKS, bubba. my computer records are often more complete and legible :)
2:42 pm
Scrabbler

The computer notes, because they are based on templates, seem so generic. Written or dictated notes seem more specific to THAT patient.
2:43 pm
Scrabbler

so4 x 2, so5 x 2 , so6 and sm4--what am I missing?
2:43 pm
lynxxx

Our government is also talking about centralised medical records as well - I think that is a great idea.
2:44 pm
bubba218

My hospitals are now completely computerized. Even the clinics have computers on stands that are wheeled around to each room. Things change, I guess we will see if it is for the better or not.
2:44 pm
jesdraggon

I don't usually use templates. And I've seen some REALLY interesting things in dictated notes...
2:44 pm
Scrabbler

There are MANY benefits to EHR but the learning process is a pain.
2:44 pm
jesdraggon

I know the people typing the dictation are supposed to be trained in medical terminology, but... it can get scary/laughable what gets printed out.
2:45 pm
Scrabbler

Haha, Jes, templates can generate errors, such as incorrect anatomical descriptions for the patient's gender.
2:45 pm
bubba218

A website has a very funny list of things that have been written in charts, intersting, funny but scary

However, I got into a he 6/24 argument with the boss and I was te 4/5inated.After that job,I worked for a vacuum cleaner company where I had to go door to door and provide de 4/6nstrations on how to use a vacuum cleaner&all of its very fancy eq5/18ment.I ha5/14 the job and only did it for a month.After I graduated from college, I became a mo5/14 for about a year.However,I couldn't handle the fast pa 4/6 of the fashion industry. I had a job working for a tr4/4 company as well.The guys thought it was we 5/20 having a girl work with them. I was called names like we6/33 so I quit. Now I'm ti4/5 so going to go take a nap.

Hello new entrants.
3:36 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I love the people I work with and they have designed a neat program that is growing, but there is no compensation for things like staff meetings which are requirements.
3:37 pm
jesdraggon

do they provide lunch during the meetings, kap?
3:37 pm
Kaplan the Magne

and the two people in charge sometimes can't figure things out between them
3:37 pm
welki

guess that's where you have to work those nonbillable hours into your contract or (gasp) increase your fees to compensate for them
3:37 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Lunch????????????
3:38 pm
Jeff7

ty!
3:38 pm

there you go, yo could suggest they provide lunch at the meetings as 'some' compensation
3:38 pm

3:39 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Contract. A novel idea.
3:39 pm
jesdraggon

Hah. First step, get a written contract!
3:39 pm
welki

if you're contract, you're not really 'staff' - so those hours should be billable (especially if you're contributing directly to the meetings)
3:40 pm
lynxxx

again, jmc will be able to advise on contracts
3:40 pm
welki

educational training = billable
3:40 pm
jesdraggon

I am pretty sure that if the meeting is required, they are required to compensate you somehow.
3:40 pm
welki

business related phone calls = billable
3:41 pm
jesdraggon

I was going to say that if they are providing lunch, they may be considering that compensation, but if they aren't doing that... i got nothin
3:41 pm
welki

stopping off for coffee and saying to the server, "this is a work meeting" NOT billable :)

3:46 pm

i suppose jm could advise you - even if you can't bill for the time, maybe there's some sort of tax category for uncompensated services
3:46 pm

I'd ask for a written contract, kap. With all job requirements and compensation in the contract.

Hello. Just starting. Kind of a full Saturday with almost nothing to show for it. Most Christmas cards finished. Gray, misty, dank day here in the NW.

5:36 pm
Kaplan the Magne

I have 3 little tasks to do, all involving slight bits of paperwork, and I keep avoiding them.
5:37 pm
Kaplan the Magne

Just fill out and mail a billing slip, and fax in a treatment request. Should take 10 minutes. I keep not doing them.

5:40 pm
Kaplan the Magne

5:41 pm

By the time you hire a psychoanalyst, order the drugs, you won't need the taskmaster and you probably don't need the first two choices either.

ugh, not my idea of a lovely present
8:14 pm
JenMO16

when dad had his pacemaker put in 3/4 years ago, he realized Calico was "clingy" to him, she would sit on his chest and not leave his side and dad found out about the fact
8:18 pm
JenMO16

then she did it to mom, which was very unusual because she is dad's cat, mom had triple bypass
8:20 pm
herinfernallady

Cats do have a sense something is wrong
8:26 pm
littlebit

yeah, when i came home from the hospital 2 1/2 years ago my cat looked at me for about 2 seconds, walked in the living room and sat on the arm of the couch. she knew i couldn't bend over that far! waited for me to come in there and pet her!
8:27 pm
lbdawger

animals have that instinct...they just know things that we humans are to obtuse to understand.
8:28 pm
JenMO16

when calico starts acting suspicious i always ask mom and dad if they are okay1
8:28 pm
littlebit

well, i'm back to lurking. jen, next time i see you on here i promise i'll say hi!! :)
8:29 pm
JenMO16

10:09 pm
mrpresident

knotted strand method :) ok??
10:09 pm
jesdraggon

like a code; different lengths of string, with different sizes and spacings of knots.
10:10 pm
jesdraggon

I'd heard of the concept before, so it's at least theoretically possible I'd heard the word before, but... yeah. NOT one I just knew right off! :D
10:13 pm
mrpresident

i am imagining a lot of string
10:13 pm

We have the grandson here again this weekend; noting the size of the grid and the fact that I'm just getting here for the first time today I'm guessing I shouldn't start as there's no way I'll finish tonight

10:22 pm
mrpresident

10:34 pm

Oh that reminds me... went back to using my original Yahoo account after leaving it for a couple of years [had too many insane people trying to add or email me on that one], so I'll readd you to that, mrp. Ugh, have to go... hope to see/talk to you soon!
10:58 pm
mrpresident

ok, Jamie Oliver recipe is in good use tonight! Got the marinade on the pork chops, next is to cut up the veges and do an open roast dish.... delish!
11:00 pm
mrpresident

pears, parsnip and potato... perfect with pork! P's are done too! :)
11:00 pm
mrpresident

oh, and parsley bread pudding on top :)
11:07 pm
mrpresident

UNO !!
11:12 pm
mrpresident

i think the secret to the parsley bread topping is to cover the dish after it has been browned! Then pour the topping on and grill it till browned so you get a wonderful crunchy coating, with delicious marinade/sauce underneath. It is just so flavoursome and easy!!
You can taste every single thing in the dish with every bite!
Break up the dish with Elizabethian carrots and beans if you like, but prefer the single bake with a nice Savignon Blanc Semillon to chase it down
11:15 pm
Bugsaw

what are Elizabethan carrots mrp?
11:16 pm
mrpresident

hi bugs :)
carrots made with honey essentially. some people like to add cumin or a spice that they like... it is simply steamed carrots with honey, roasted for a short time.
11:17 pm
mrpresident

It must have been Queen Elizabeth I that loved honey
11:18 pm
Bugsaw

sounds great
11:18 pm
Bugsaw

I am not much of a cook but a great eater
11:18 pm
mrpresident

The King was in the counting house, counting out his money... the Queen was in the parlour, eating bread and honey... I wonder where that rhyme came from!
11:19 pm
Bugsaw

not QE I
11:19 pm
mrpresident

LOL bugs!! aren't we all!!
I love to do gourmet dishes and it is kind of 'desired and expected' on a Sunday evening. My son looks at me like a ravenous beast the whole day, wondering what I will cook
11:19 pm
mrpresident

oooh, which queen?
11:20 pm
Bugsaw

11:20 pm

don't worry too much mrp. Kids are pretty good with lots of little cheap things. My kids were great when we were far below the poverty line
11:29 pm
mrpresident

I am kind of depending on the in-laws coming through with money for the kids for xmas. They understand otherwise
11:29 pm
Bugsaw
