Re: Charles Darwin too Controversial?


I think that if you live outside of the US and the UK you are more likely to see both than the one or the other in their own country because they produce so much of their own entertainment. I must admit I was disappointed that there was so little American TV because most of the stuff that was available in the hotels was rubbish or old shows that we'd already seen. For instance there was an episode of NCIS that we didn't watch because we'd already seen it on repeats in SA (last year), and it was being screened there for the first time.

More likely, you were visiting at the wrong time of year to catch the new shows, we are all stuck watching repeats throughout the summer. There are exceptions, a few shows run their new ones during the summer now instead, but most of the new episodes begin in the fall.
As a matter of fact, the season premiere of NCIS is on tonight, followed by the new NCIS LA.

YEP, the new shows are just starting this week for many of them...
Hubby and I watched the Premiere for HOUSE last [sign in to see URL] MEL is right about NCIS:

Being on tonight....
I think they do that because the audience for SUMMER has so much else to do, that it's not worth it...
But the movies do the SUMMER BLOCKBUSTERS for all the kids who are out of school....

Mel I was visiting the UK, not the US. The UK's tv is way behind what we get in SA.

I saw that about NCIS LA, of course we are so behind NCIS that it will be at least 5 years before we see that one.
I can't wait for uncapped internet then I can watch whatever is new on TV without having to wait for our idiots to get it for us.

I must remember to look at the website, I can't wait to see what happens after he admitted himself for treatment.
I love House. It's so funny watching Barry trying to figure out who actors are at the Emmys because they look so different to what they do in the shows. People always look different out of context.

[sign in to see URL] "stories" are not as far fetched as one would imagine. "HOUSE" is based on the real life "Diagnosis" of Dr. Lisa Sanders, Yale School of Medicine, who writes a monthly Column for the New York TImes called.."Diagnosis" and now has written a book called....
]"Every Patient Tells a Story".

(in-case that link disappears here is what it says about the book and the link to HOUSE)

quote:

ABOUT THIS BOOK

A riveting exploration of the most difficult and important part of what doctors do, by Yale School of Medicine physician Dr. Lisa Sanders, author of the monthly New York Times Magazine column "Diagnosis," the inspiration for the hit Fox TV series House, M.D.

"The experience of being ill can be like waking up in a foreign country. Life, as you formerly knew it, is on hold while you travel through this other world as unknown as it is unexpected. When I see patients in the hospital or in my office who are suddenly, surprisingly ill, what they really want to know is, ‘What is wrong with me?’ They want a road map that will help them manage their new surroundings. The ability to give this unnerving and unfamiliar place a name, to know it–on some level–restores a measure of control, independent of whether or not that diagnosis comes attached to a cure. Because, even today, a diagnosis is frequently all a good doctor has to offer."

A healthy young man suddenly loses his memory–making him unable to remember the events of each passing hour. Two patients diagnosed with Lyme disease improve after antibiotic treatment–only to have their symptoms mysteriously return. A young woman lies dying in the ICU–bleeding, jaundiced, incoherent–and none of her doctors know what is killing her. In Every Patient Tells a Story, Dr. Lisa Sanders takes us bedside to witness the process of solving these and other diagnostic dilemmas, providing a firsthand account of the expertise and intuition that lead a doctor to make the right diagnosis.

Never in human history have doctors had the knowledge, the tools, and the skills that they have today to diagnose illness and disease. And yet mistakes are made, diagnoses missed, symptoms or tests misunderstood. In this high-tech world of modern medicine, Sanders shows us that knowledge, while essential, is not sufficient to unravel the complexities of illness. She presents an unflinching look inside the detective story that marks nearly every illness–the diagnosis–revealing the combination of uncertainty and intrigue that doctors face when confronting patients who are sick or dying. Through dramatic stories of patients with baffling symptoms, Sanders portrays the absolute necessity and surprising difficulties of getting the patient’s story, the challenges of the physical exam, the pitfalls of doctor-to-doctor communication, the vagaries of tests, and the near calamity of diagnostic errors. In Every Patient Tells a Story, Dr. Sanders chronicles the real-life drama of doctors solving these difficult medical mysteries that not only illustrate the art and science of diagnosis, but often save the patients’ lives.

Re: Charles Darwin too Controversial?


I've often said that I wish House was real so I could get him to tell me what's really going on with me. Doctors just hand out medication and say "it's normal at your age" or "there's nothing wrong with you" when you know very well that what's wrong with you is unnatural at any age.
I think that once you pass 50 you're expendable so they don't really care to make medical history by curing you so they don't bother.
