|May-11-12|| ||shivasuri4: So after 14 months, just when we were thinking he's left CG, <eyal> is back! Right in time for the WC match.|
|May-11-12|| ||tpstar: Hooray!
Now we need <percyblakeney> <TheAlchemist> <SBC> <InspiredByMorphy> <Cyphelium> <EmperorAtahualpa> <Chopin> plus the two victims of the smear campaign plus three former members of the Barangay Wesley and we will have ample resources against the Bad People.
|May-14-12|| ||thegoodanarchist: <tpstar: <excel in two fields> Let's update the list:|
Paul Morphy = lawyer
Siegbert Tarrasch = physician
Mikhail Botvinnik = engineer
Vasily Smyslov = opera
Mark Taimanov = pianist
Robert Huebner = parapsychologist
William James Lombardy = minister
Simen Agdestein = soccer
Kenneth Rogoff = economics
Joshua Waitzkin = martial arts
Alexander Grischuk = poker
Magnus Carlsen = modeling
Bobby Fischer = nutjob!
|May-14-12|| ||Shams: <Robert Huebner = parapsychologist>|
Did he really "excel"?
|May-14-12|| ||tpstar: I am presuming <thegoodanarchist> is far more peaceful than <thebadanarchist> if you think about it. =)|
Let's add Luke McShane = finance to the list.
Writing/Authors were excluded by design.
<Robert Huebner> His skills were medium.
|May-15-12|| ||thegoodanarchist: James Tarjan = librarian.
Although I don't know how one evaluates whether or not Tarjan "excelled" at being a librarian.
|May-15-12|| ||tpstar: <James Tarjan = librarian> Technically that counts, although every serious player has their own chess library with dozens to hundreds of books. The object was outside careers, which is why I exclude serious writing.|
Tarjan seemed to have a hit and miss career. Some of his games were brilliant attacks, but he never seemed to make the big time.
|May-15-12|| ||OhioChessFan: <Although I don't know how one evaluates whether or not Tarjan "excelled" at being a librarian.>|
Dewey really know if any librarian excels?
|May-15-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <OhioChessFan> I often make use of spreadsheets on the job, so you could say that I constantly Excel.|
|May-15-12|| ||Shams: <Tarjan seemed to have a hit and miss career.> For being raised by apes, he did pretty well.|

You're learning <Shams>, you're learning.

I thought this summarizes it all: "Physicians should approach posting on social networking sites in the same way they approach conversations in hospital elevators, Crotty said. It's simply forbidden to discuss cases in a public setting, whether physical or virtual".
The example of the physician who posted information about a patient that was easily identifiable even if the patient's name was withheld proves that in medicine, just like in any profession, there are dumb people too.
|May-29-12|| ||tpstar: <WannaBe> Thank you very much for the link.|
Besides this site, I use social media as little as possible, and frankly I'm glad I grew up before the Internet age brought about these fake numbers games: how many friends, how many texts, how many tweets, etc. A big part of my stance is how Facebook and YouTube are both blocked from our medical office due to nasty viruses.
<It's simply forbidden to discuss cases in a public setting> Oh my, that is a noble yet naive statement.
Patient confidentiality is of course paramount. Then again, look at all of the rating Web sites where patients can anonymously post their stories, real or invented, even naming the doctor while the patient's identity remains private. That is a clear double standard.

Hübner is a papyrologist (an expert in Egyptian hieroglyphics), which is a little different from a parapsychologist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert...

I've always thought if someone didn't trust their doctor's competence, they should surely find someone else.
Do you have any general thoughts on the recent uproar on lead content in purses and shoes? I know there's been much concern about lead paint chips being eaten by kids, but does physical contact or breathing it pose a serious hazard?
|Jun-08-12|| ||tpstar: <doctor's competence> It is bad enough that any anonymous patient could air unlimited false accusations against a named health care provider who may never hear about their complaints and thus wouldn't have any fair shake to respond. It is even worse that Internet denizens would use that misinformation to choose their doctor.|
<lead content in purses and shoes> That was big in 2010 but faded fast. I suspect it was more of an anti-China scare than any real health risk. In the meantime, don't consume purses or shoes, just to be safe. :-)

<Now> you tell me.
