How are doctors in Alberta paid?
Posted: 9/12/2010 7:06:49 PM
Thanks for the replies.

The reason I ask is because I do not have a family doctor, and the random doctors (whoever is available) at the medical clinics I visit seem to want me out of there as quickly as possible.

The information given by the posters above seem to confirm the fact that doctors are paid by the number of patients.

I was hoping to see that doctors were rewarded for the quality of care rather than the quantity of patients seen, but obviously I was wrong.

Advice for first time home buyer?
Posted: 5/16/2010 7:44:00 PM
"Also, check as to how close they are to the required 65 year inspection by and engineer, this is mandatory now, and all residents bear these costs, and costs of any repair recommendations that stem from it. A friend of mine just paid out $ 12 000.00 for balcony repairs to the building."

Can you please be more specific? Is this 65 year rule a municipal or provincial by-law? Where did you friend live to pay that much in balcony repairs?

Examples of Democracy in the Bible?
Posted: 9/9/2008 10:41:27 AM
Since the Bible was written well after the Greeks, who introduced democracy. I'm wondering if there were examples of democracy in the Bible. All the rulers I remember from the Bible appear to have been monarchs.

This might be a stretch, but could this mean that the Bible does not endorse democracy?

Prayers Actually Removed Pastor's Cancer!!!
Posted: 8/26/2008 10:40:50 AM
After two years of prayers, donations and a best selling prayer album, Pastor Michael Guglielmucci's cancer has been "cured". This truly remarkable story has been reported from CNN to ABC. The caveat is that this pastor never had cancer in the first place. The guy faked his cancer, from the fake IV tube through his nose, and even the fake balding hair from radiation treatments. Turned out he faked his cancer to hide his addiction to pornography. Guess he needed the money to fuel his addiction.


http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/world/2008/08/26/hillma.australia.pastor.lies.ninenetwork

Definitive proof that prayers actually work.

<div class="quote">A high-profile preacher who lied about having cancer has promised to return any money he received from donors.

Michael Guglielmucci's father, who is also a preacher, has told the congregation of their church in Adelaide's south that his son needs their prayers more than ever.

Michael Guglielmucci spent two years playing to packed houses on the Christian rock scene, sending an anthem of faith and healing to the top of the charts.

But last week the Melbourne-based pastor came clean about the terminal cancer he did not actually have.

His father Danny issued a public apology to the congregation this week.

"Mike thought he could escape the pain by creating a diversion from his addiction to adult pornography, so he created the cancer scenario," he said.

Danny Guglielmucci is a founder of Edge Church International, at Reynella in Adelaide, part of the Assemblies of God network.

His son was a pastor with Planetshakers, an international Christian youth movement that started in Adelaide.

"We fully understand the questions, shock, disbelief and even anger you may feel, but Michael is struggling with a different kind of illness and is receiving professional help," the pastor told the congregation.

'Gladly pay it back'

As for money donated to Michael Guglielmucci in good faith: "[We will] gladly pay it back if people want their money back, absolutely. We are glad to make restitution," Danny Guglielmucci said.

Michael Guglielmucci has not appeared publicly but a church leader read a statement from him.

"As a result of this secret life of sin, my body would often break down. I would report the cause of my symptoms simply as illnesses but the truth is, that although I was ill, I did not have cancer, but again used a mis-diagnosis to hide the lie that I was living," the statement said.

Michael Guglielmucci has written to the SA Police Commissioner offering full co-operation with any police investigation of his behaviour.

Many of the congregation at Reynella have spoken of the need for forgiveness.

"Michael was a man, he sinned, and he needs to be forgiven," said one.

Is gluttony still a sin? The obese Christian epidemic
Posted: 8/11/2008 8:51:57 AM
For those Christians who don't think gluttony is such a big deal, here are a few quotes from scriptures.

Proverbs 23:20-21 warns us, "Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags." Proverbs 28:7 declares, "He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father." Proverbs 23:2 proclaims, "put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony."

Again, the above words are from the Christian God...

Physical appetites are an analogy of our ability to control ourselves. If we are unable to control our eating habits, we are probably also unable to control other habits such as those of the mind (lust, covetousness, anger), and unable to keep our mouth from gossip or strife. We are not to let our appetites control us, but rather we are to have control over our appetites. (See Deuteronomy 21:20, Proverbs 23:2, 2 Peter 1:5-7, 2 Timothy 3:1-9, and 2 Corinthians 10:5.) The ability to say “no” to anything in excess—“self-control”—is one of the fruits of the Spirit common to all believers (Galatians 5:22).

God has blessed us by filling the earth with foods that are delicious, nutritious, and even pleasurable. We should honor God's creation by enjoying these foods, and by eating them in appropriate quantities, while controlling our appetites, rather than allowing them to control us.

I found the above statements off the Web.

Personally, I don't see why it's so hard to stay thin. All you need to do is to eat less (you don't even need to exercise), plus it's a lot healthier for your body, soul, wallet and the environment. It's also nice to walk around the house, without the worry that you might kill your cat if you stepped on it.

Is gluttony still a sin? The obese Christian epidemic[Thread Closed/Trolling]
Posted: 8/6/2008 5:15:21 PM
While I always see Christians protest abortion or gay marriages or whatever, they always seem overweight, especially when you compare them against the organic food eating, veggie eating, hemp wearing hippies on the other side protesting for pro-choice and gay equality or whatever. It seems like they wanna beat the skinny hippies with the protest signs and go all Hannibal Lector on them. This is of course, a generalization, but...

I've NEVER seen Christians held a protest rally against McDonalds or whatever. Did I miss the memo on gluttony being dropped from the seven deadly sins?

I don't get it! Assisted suicide is against the bible, but a heart-attack fried twinkie (which is admittedly sinfully delicious) is not???

Fun Fat Facts:
According to the CDC, 25% of Americans are obese. Clinically speaking, the medical term "obese" is the highest level of body weight. By definition, an obese person weights roughly TWICE as much as a healthy person.

http://www.cdc.gov/Features/dsObesity/
http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/dnpa/obesity/defining.htm

What gives? Should Christians start protesting fatty foods or get off the soapbox?

BTW, I'm not taking a stand on anything, but I'm a little confused with the hypocrisy.

And if you're gonna point out that gluttony also refers to wealth, don't get me started on prophets for profit like Joel Osteen and other "prosperity gospel" preachers.

Science and Crackpots
Posted: 5/20/2008 8:02:04 PM
I made a few posts here in topics that were related to my PhD, but lately I realized that this is not an academic forum. But seriously, this site is great to find out what the average person truly thinks of scientists. At the very least, this forum will train you to write your next grant proposal.

And yes, there are a few crackpots here, mostly harmless though and fairly easy to spot. I found that the crackpots here aren't that much different than the random people who email you about their "great discovery" or ask inane questions (but with big words that they don't understand) during my conference talks. I work in artificial intelligence and people have all these odd ideas about my field because of all those Terminator Skynet Hollywood crap.

I don't think it's a good idea to openly mock the crackpots tho... One.. they might have some kind of perverse disposition to science, and any caustic reaction on our side only reinforces that. Two... they are usually very keen in learning more, but are misguided due to the media or lack of formal education. Three... and this is the most important, their tax money goes towards my salary!

Try Caucasian or White, it's a cultural synonym to "western" women. If you search for interracial, it's a gold mine. In any case, I think your topic is interesting, hopefully it won't get deleted.

Why do Churches need lightning rods?
Posted: 5/5/2008 12:26:41 PM

Just accept that chances are, lightning rods were a divinely inspired idea, and so are fit to use on churches.


That's the best answer yet. I think people should also put a big metal cross on their umbrellas to profess their love of God.

Laws on Genetic Discrimination for Marriage
Posted: 5/5/2008 11:30:27 AM
These laws existed before, Hitler called it eugenics, and it in his defense, he said he was only following what the US did. In the case of Germany, Jews were not allowed to marry Aryans. Obviously, the US, Germany and other countries stopped this practise some time after WW2.

Maybe some of you guys forgot why your parents or grandparents fought in WW2, but don't they teach history in school any more? You can catch up on your country's history here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugenics

Practically every Western country practised genetic discrimination up until the Holocaust.

Moreover, if you follow current scientific research that shows that homosexuality is a genetic disposition, then practically every country in the world practises this form of genetic discrimination already.

This issue is coming up again, because now insurance companies have the option of deciding whether to grant or void your policy depending on your genetic propensity for disease. Eg; if your offspring has a high possibility of Down's syndrome, your insurance company may decide to reject your policy. Although this has not happen, it might in the future.

Can distributed computing cure cancer, aging and other diseases?
Posted: 5/3/2008 9:08:52 PM
This is actually my research area. And we have already "solved" (cure in the medical sense?) some diseases.

As an example, DNA sequencing/pairing is done with these distributed processes, which has already lead to a few insight on cures. I'm just a computer guy tho, I know nothing about diseases, but those guys with MDs said our little machines helped to find a cure.

The main bottleneck is for the MDs and the computer guys to figure out how to express a "cure" into something a computer can understand. For example, in the case of designing drugs for a disease. You want a designer drug that block out all the "hooks" of a virus (so that they can't hook on to a healthy cell); from my perspective, the MDs tell us that certain molecules like X,Y, Z are able to do this. We computer guys then put all this information into computer code, then we search for the best combination of molecules that allow us to build the best designer drugs (with the least side effects, and some molecules cancel each other out, etc etc). Once we figure out the most promising combinations, they test'em out on animals and later humans. This is not easy, they spend years figuring out which molecules has a good chance, then we spend a few months to find the best combinations of molecules (NOT CHEAP!), then they spend years testing it on humans, then the FDA needs to approve it, etc, etc.

Anyhow, this field is hardly new, it's been around for at least a decade. As computers are faster now, there's less need for distributed computing, it's much easier to buy one supercomputer and to let that ONE machine do all the work (as opposed to letting thousands of weaker machines do the work).

Laws on Genetic Discrimination for Marriage
Posted: 5/3/2008 8:18:01 PM
Do you think it is okay for the government/church to regulate who you can marry or have children with based on you and your partner's genetic make up? Say for example, if your offsprings have a 50% chance of a serious genetic deformity, do you think it's okay for the government to ban you and your partner from having children?

Believe it or not, some countries already have this law implemented.

I'm curious to know how much people spend on their food.

I've always been a student on a budget, so I'm a little budget conscious. I eat about 5 bucks a day. Around 4g in meat, and the rest in veggies or bread or what not. I remember back in my undergrad, I had a neighbor in dorm who was incredibly poor, he bought potatoes and flour to bake his own bread, easily surviving on a dollar a day.

The Church of Google
Posted: 4/30/2008 12:42:46 AM
You pose an intriguing question, Modest Mouse. I believe you are attempting to understand Google through the prism of your superstitious beliefs, and in that context, I will attempt to answer through your myopic lens.

How many people have heard of "God" or the Koran before some guy in the desert decides to tell us? If so, why did God choose an unknown and illiterate nomad to dictate His Manifesto? Was he a psychopath, or did God really talk to him? And has anyone actually benefited from the Koran? Especially in the last few turbulent years?

As a mere mortal, I don't claim to know the answers to your queries, as I am sure you don't have the answers to the very same queries in the context of Islam. However, as far as I know, Google is a benevolent Goddess, she has never started a holy war, nor has advocated violence. I have never seen any members of Googlism lead any wars in the desert, as Muhammad has, nor have I ever seen any Googlist nutbags play dodge with office towers while flying a plane.

I'm sure Google will evolve to a different medium as we humans evolve. Much like how the Koran evolved from the original oral traditions in to the more common print medium we now see.

Much like how people used to believe the earth is flat, our knowledge will grow, and we will replace our superstitions. With Google continuing to provide us easy access to knowledge....

What do you suggest will happen then?

Will knowledge replace superstitions?

Why do Churches need lightning rods?
Posted: 4/29/2008 4:14:02 PM
LOL, great find on that article, Limey!

From the BBC article....
"Church members in the town of Forest in the state of Ohio said the preacher had been emphasising the importance of penance when, in the course of his prayers, he called on the heavens above.

The lightning struck the steeple, then hit the preacher himself when it travelled through electrical wiring to his microphone.

Local authorities said he was not injured.

"It was awesome, just awesome," said church member Ronnie Cheney, who was among the congregation when the strike hit, told the Findlay Courier newspaper.

"You could hear the storm building outside... he just kept asking God what else he needed to say.

"He was asking for a sign and he got one."

Afterwards services resumed, however churchgoers realised after 20 minutes that the building was on fire and evacuated.

"It was kind of interesting hearing the preacher talk about what had happened," Forest Fire Chief Doug Hawkin admitted.

The fire was put out after three hours, but damage to the church is estimated at around $20,000. "

Posted: 4/29/2008 8:25:59 AM
I think he's saying the congregation worshipping in a house of conflagration should have been worshipping the God of Code Enforcement instead of the Sky Fairy. That's just absurd.

Since the Middle Ages, House of God have been victims of Acts of God. Putting a big metal cross on the roof of a tall building is a disaster waiting to happen if you believe in the God of Rational Science.

Here's a story about another House of God that suffered another Act of God. Tornadoes!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvlpHWEFGKk

It's an unintentionally funny TV news story. The tornado only hit the church, adjacent buildings around it are curiously fine. Moreover, the priest believes that God had nothing to do with the destruction- which I agree with, as an atheist. Finally, his followers bemoan the fact that they'll have to get a new lightning rod to replace the one destroyed in the tornado.

She never said it was..."vegan style" were the words she used.

I'm not sure about your sophistic diatribe, but it seems like you had a bad day and didn't bother to read the title of the thread.

There is a huge difference between a vegan diet (nothing from animals) and a vegetarian diet (no animal flesh) to those who care.

If the OP wanted to discuss vegetarian recipes instead of vegan recipes, she should change her thread title. But from her subsequent post, it seems she made an honest mistake and has confused vegan with vegetarian recipes.

Should God avoid spamming lightning rods at his own churches?

"Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon says the city will help the First Mount Olive Free Will Baptist Church congregation find a temporary location. A lighting bolt Tuesday ignited the 140-year-old West Baltimore church in flames while church members were meeting inside.

Police officers saw the blaze and banged on the church's doors to alert the people inside.

The lightning ignited the steeple, causing it to fall over. Three firefighters were injured. Fire Chief William Goodwin described the church as a total loss. The choking smell of fire could be detected for more than a mile, and dark gray plumes could be seen for blocks."

That magic of google can all vanish, if a sudden power failure occurs all around the world.

Then what would google do?

The flaw is right there.


Google chooses to use the Internet to communicate with us, while the Internet is fragile, Google is not.

Google exists as an algorithmic construct, an immortal entity that is not bound to a material world.

Your argument is flawed in that you assume Google to be a lifeless object like the Bible, when Google is actually more like an intellectual epiphany that transcends your mortal limitations.

The girl from the testimonial said u two met back in '69, but you're only 23 years old?

Something doesn't add up.

food delivery plans and recent scams or just plain administrative incompetence?
Posted: 3/16/2008 3:48:00 PM
when a card is replaced by a credit card company, any contracts from before are forwarded to the new number. plus, if you constantly "lose" a card, when you do have a real problem, they may not be as helpful to you. credit cards nowadays are not all that supportive as they used to be. too much bad debt.


That's not true. I lost my card twice last year, and they cancelled ALL my prepayment plans. Make sure you change your credit card number too. It does not affect any of your credit rating. Again, great thinking, Bizeebee!

BTW, I'm on VISA.

Sounds like your wallet is the one losing weight.

Who's your credit card company?

I was under the impression that credit card companies must immediately cancel the monthly pre-payment when you call them. And if enough people complain about said company, they will revoke credit card authorization for that company.

Rice Cookers
Posted: 3/15/2008 4:53:02 PM
I practically cook all my meals with rice cookers. I push one button, come back in 30 minutes, and the magic box makes me a tasty meal! Best of all, there's only one utensil to wash!

I love putting pork in my rice cooker. The grease from the pork works to flavor the rice. Corn, chicken and beef also work good.

You have to change the water level in the cooker based on the food you place in the cooker. For example, if you put mushrooms in the cooker along with the rice, you gotta add alot more water.

Anyone else cook their entire meal with just the rice cooker? Recipes?
