BehindTheMedspeak: STOP EATING MY FOOD — YES, YOU!

600

Above, an email I received yesterday from the staff administrator of the hospital I work at.

Wouldn't you like to know exactly where the door is so you can continue to get free food?

Heh.

My lips are sealed.

Until I sit down for lunch tomorrow, when the new code takes effect and I can finally dine in peace.

Tilda Swinton naps in public — "You call that art?"

In fact, yes — I do.

Of the very highest order.

Next you're gonna tell me Rauschenburg's 1953 "Erased de Kooning" (below)

isn't art either.

I've got no time for you.

Nothing to see here, please move along.

BehindTheMedspeak: 9 drugs for bipolar disorder means none of them are much good

09112-cover-medcabinet

It's an iron axiom of medicine that if there are many treatments for something, none of them is very effective.

Consider hiccups, for which tens, scores, hundreds of remedies exist, none of which always or even often work.

Bipolar disorder is in the same boat: there are innumerable drugs used by millions around the world to try and control this devastating and tragically oftimes fatal disease, yet none of them is a cure.

The graphic up top, from an excellent piece by Bethany Halford in the latest Chemical and Engineering News, demonstrates this quite nicely.
