Mid-Week Post

Fantabulous day!

According to the poll, most (almost all) think Ezra Levant is cooler than George Strombolopolous (I'm assuming the vote for him was accidental).

How right you are!

Let me sate your thirst for this particular Wonder Twin with this:

CTV's cowardice and CBC's silence just doesn't scratch Antonia Zerbsias' fatuous attack on the Ethical Oil ad. Perhaps she would like to explain how the ad disgusts her on Ezra Levant's show?


File this under: OBSCENE; MURDER; LAWSUIT:

Canadian researchers have documented a string of cases in which women were misdiagnosed with ectopic pregnancies, then given a powerful drug that led to miscarriage, abortion or the birth of severely deformed babies.

The blunder - causing "significant emotional suffering" - is likely more common than it appears, researchers at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children say, noting that use of the drug, methotrexate, has soared in recent years. Such misdiagnoses are seldom reported to authorities now, likely in part because of physicians' fears of legal problems, said their study, just published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The researchers catalogue eight recent cases, in both Canada and the U.S.

In some cases, they say, emergency-department doctors with limited training in analyzing ultrasound images may be mistakenly identifying healthy pregnancies as ectopic, where the embryo develops outside the womb.

The authors argue that the diagnosis should be made only after a confirmatory ultrasound and careful consideration. They also urge that a non-judgmental system be established to encourage more reporting of such cases.

"They all ended up in dire outcomes, they were all desired pregnancies," Dr. Yaron Finkelstein, an emergency doctor and toxicologist at Sick Kids, said about the study he spearheaded. "Our wish was to highlight and raise awareness of this phenomenon.... There is not a lot of incentives for clinicians to report these cases."

No, a blunder is reading the wrong name over an intercom.  These diagnoses classify as inhumanity and incompetence.

I guess being "desired" magically transformed these eliminated offspring into human beings. Biology is best  never brought up in cases like this.

Who will miss this disgusting, evil man when he is gone?

The Canadians are now better friends to Israel than the US. Who saw that coming?

Prime Minister Stephen Harper rallied to the side of Israel on Wednesday, saying the best road for peace in the Middle East lies through negotiations between that country and the Palestinians.

Harper made his move in a meeting at the United Nations with Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
Under Harper’s leadership, Canada has been an outspoken supporter of Israel in recent years. And on Wednesday, Harper publicly reinforced that relationship with a critically timed message of support.

The international community is gripped this week with debate over the Palestinian Authority’s bid for statehood at the UN.

Harper has categorically stated in recent days that Canada will oppose the “unilateral” effort by the Palestinians at the UN — outside of long-stalled peace talks with Israel — because it could actually hamper hopes for peace in the region.

Really? Just one regret? I mean- it's a valid one but I'm sure there are more regrets.

And now, some record-breaking cats.
