New Social Media Guidelines Issued for Physicians (Dr K K Aggarwal)

Medscape Cardiology: A new social media policy urges doctors to "pause before posting" and to not "friend" patients online. The guidelines issued by the American College of Physicians and the Federation of State Medical Boards, was released at ACP Internal Medicine 2013 in San Francisco, California, and published April 11 in the Annals of Internal Medicine. It addresses the benefits and drawbacks of a number of online interactions, and proposes safeguards.

A recent survey of state medical boards showed that 92% reported at least 1 online violation of professionalism that led to a major action, such as license re vocation (JAMA. 2012;307:1141-1142). …More

Lotus the essence of the Gita

Bhagavad Gita again and again emphasizes that one should cultivate an attitude of non-attachment or detachment (detached attachment). One should live like water on a lotus leaf.

Krishna says that “One who does actions, offering them to Brahman and abandoning attachment, is not tainted by sin as a lotus leaf is untouched by water”—V.10. …More

The parrot and the magician

A magician worked on a cruise ship. The audience was different each week, so the magician did the same tricks over and over again.

There was one problem. The captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick.

Once he understood, he started shouting in the middle of the show, "Look, it's not the same hat!" or, "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table," or "Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?"

The magician was furious, but couldn't do anything. It was, after all, the captain's parrot. Then the ship sank. The magician found himself on a piece of wood in the middle of the sea with, as fate would have it, the parrot.

They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day and then another and then another.

Finally on the fourth day, the parrot could not hold back and said, "OK, I give up. Where's the ship?"
