This study on consumer satisfaction with health care was initiated by the WHO Regional Office for Europe for at least two reasons. The first reason was tied to political beliefs and principles. For example, Target 26 of the Health for All (HFA) Strategy stresses the crucial importance of involving individuals and the whole community in the planning and delivery of primary health care. The assumption appears to be that there is a need to take into account the perspective ...

With growing awareness not only that access to health care is a basic human right but that health is a valuable national asset, a primary aim of social development, and an essential means to sound economic and social progress, the crucial question that decision-makers at the highest level have to consider is not whether their country can afford to improve health services but whether it can afford not to do so. A parallel realization is tha.t achieving and maintaining hea...

Jarek

By: Rigby Taylor

‘Jarek’ takes a tongue in cheek swipe at the extreme elements of 'women’s liberation', while offering a serious alternative to the way we currently teach our children.

Chapter 1. Zeno Skinny-dipping with Raylene’s friends was not Zeno’s idea of a fun night out. He’d only agreed because he wanted to seem tough, and hoped if he felt her up in the water and fucked her afterwards her mates would stop spreading rumours he was queer. The cars screeched to a halt at the boat ramp. Everyone piled out and headed for the small beach until Bob’s girlfriend reckoned there’d be eels and leeches in the river, so she refused to go down. Then the ...

Medical Reference Publication

1. INTRODUCTION Hospital hygiene will be dealt with here in its narrow sense: the prevention of hospitalacquired infections. A hospital infection is an infection acquired in hospital by a patient who was admitted for a reason other than that infection. Before the advent of antibiotics most hospital infections were due to micro-organisms of external origin (salmonellosis caused by infected food, bacterial gangrene, etc.) or to microorganisms not present in the normal flor...

Dome of Death

By: Rigby Taylor

Dome of Death is a slightly shocking and occasionally thought provoking romantic thriller about two young men who’d love to be as cool as James Bond in the face of extreme danger, but discover reality is not like fiction. When Max, the director of an Art Gallery in Queensland, falls to his death, Peter, the exhibiting artist who is also Max's ex-lover, unwillingly accepts the widow’s pleas to take over the job. After rescuing a strange young man from a raging sea, Pe...

Chapter One Exposing oneself in public is not for the faint-hearted. En masse and expertly illuminated the paintings gave viewers rather more insight into the private spaces of my mind than I’d bargained for. The fact that the gallery’s patrons were also baring their souls with every critical utterance and every painting bought was scant consolation – especially as no one was buying! After an hour of eavesdropping among the usual crush of wine-sipping social scrambl...

Dieselpunk Epulp Showcase : Volume 1

By: John W. Picha; Grant Gardiner

WELCOME TO THE RETRO FUTURE When I started the Dieselpunks website years ago, the word “dieselpunk” was still a curiosity. Sure, it was loaded with familiar tropes like Pulp Adventure, Film Noir, and Weird Horror, but the artists were mashing these concepts together with something different, something a little more contemporary. At that time, the steampunks were just starting to climb their way from the underground and gain traction as a legitimate style, but there ...

THE 1920s. MID-WESTERN COMMONWEALTH, CHICAGO. “Well if it ain’t that then what was it?” “It was all those damn fool bankers in New York.” “Bankers?” “Yeah, bankers. They’re the ones who caused everything that’s happened. A huge pack of New York bankers got greedy. And the country was the one to cop it in the teeth when it all headed south.” “Nah. It weren’t that.” “It was too. And everyone knows it. Bankers got greedy, they sold Louisiana back to the ...

In response to the changing demographics of the U.S. population, in 1997 the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued new standards for collecting data on race and Hispanic or Latino origin (12). Most notably, the new standards allow respondents to the census and to Federal surveys to indicate more than one group in answering questions on race. In addition, the category ‘‘Asian or Pacific Islander’’ is now split into two distinct categories, ‘‘Asian’’ and ‘‘Native Ha...
