Case studies – Following on from Truth telling Question.?

Question by atreehugger: Case studies – Following on from Truth telling Question.?
A 65 year old man comes to his physician with complaints of abdominal pain that is persistent but not extreme. Results reveal that he has metastatic cancer of the pancreas. The man has just retired from a busy professional career, and he and his wife are about to leave on around the world cruise that they’ve been planning for over a year.

Should he be told about his diagnosis?

A 78yr old Asian woman is admitted to hospital with weight loss, weakness and a pulmonary mass. Results show that she has pulmonary TB. Her family approaches the physician and asks that the patient not be told, stating that in her upbringing in mainland China TB was considered fatal and to tell her would be like giving her a ‘death sentence’.

Should the families concerns be respected?

Book question???

Question by David H: Book question???
I don’t know how many people have read the book River Town: Two Years on the Yangtze, but if anyone has can you please give me as much information as possible, THANK YOU

Answer by norseheathen
In the heart of China’s Sichuan province, amid the terraced hills of the Yangtze River valley, lies the remote town of Fuling. Like many other small cities in this ever-evolving country, Fuling is heading down a new path of change and growth, which came into remarkably sharp focus when Peter Hessler arrived as a Peace Corps volunteer, marking the first time in more than half a century that the city had an American resident. Hessler taught English and American literature at the local college, but it was his students who taught him about the complex processes of understanding that take place when one is immersed in a radically different society.

Poignant, thoughtful, funny, and enormously compelling, River Town is an unforgettable portrait of a city that is seeking to understand both what it was and what it someday will be.

im asian, and have VERY strict parents. They rarely buy me clothes, (so i have about 5 shirts i can actually wear, no skirts/dresses, some old flare jeans) i also want a dress, so i dont have to wear jeans and a tshirt
its not a finacial problem(seeing as the our family sends back 40000 a year to china to help our relatives)
and one time i was at a friends sleepover and she put a bit of mascara on me, and when i came home the next day, a bit of it was smeared under my eye
my parents asked what that was, and i lied, saying it was war paint or something( cause they would flip it they knew it was makeup)
but they found out eventually
they werent that mad, but i was super embarrased cause they were laughing, and they told it to all thier friends later
i have to get a’s or they get really mad at me for a while
i have to join all the academic clubs at school
🙁

*whew*

thanks for ur help
(and srry about the length)

Answer by Hannah 🙂
I would ask your mom, because she is more likely to understand and what I would say is, “Hey mom, I have graduation coming up, as you know. I was wondering if I may wear a little makeup for it since it is a big event. Also, I only have a few shirts, and a couple pairs of jeans to wear, do you think I could get a dress, since it’s a little formal?” or something along those lines. I asked my mom that way, and she understood. If they weren’t mad about the mascara, I’m sure they’ll be fine, and It’s not embarrassing at all, a lot of girls wear makeup!

Answer by okchick133
from a doctors point of view, they are obligated to inform and treat their patients…unless the PATIENT asks not to be treated or informed. in the Asian woman case, the family members do not have the right to ask the doctor to withhold his diagnosis. he is also obligated to tell the man about the cancer even if there isn’t any treatment options. not doing so could result in the doctor being sued by the patient for negligence.

Three Gorges Dam lock question?

Question by doornobk: Three Gorges Dam lock question?
The Yangtze river had commercial traffic on it before the dam was constructed. I would presume during constriction that traffic was able to go around the dam site using the bypass channels that the river flowed through so no big deal there, more or less business as usual. The dam when completed would have locks and lifts to get boats up the 500+ feet to then take advantage of the deeper water and be able to reach further up river with larger loads. Sounds good on paper. My question is did they just shut down traffic for the 2 years it took to fill up? Or did they have some temporary locks in operation that were then constantly modified till they reached their final height? If that is what they did it would seem like there should be some info on it somewhere since it like the rest of the project would have been pretty new technology.
Got any links with information about the temporary locks? Ideally photos and technical info related to how they did it? Also is that a common practice when building dams?

Best answer:

Answer by texaslivewire360
Yes they did have temporary portable locks in place during the new construction.

Q&A: Why is it only ok when Republicans question a President? Why don’t liberals accuse them of the high insult of?

Question by ♥austingirl♥: Why is it only ok when Republicans question a President? Why don’t liberals accuse them of the high insult of?
being “un-American” like cons do? During Kosovo (where there were 0 troops deaths), Republicans lined up to insult the President during a time of “war”…are they “un-American” or just hypocrites?

“President Clinton is once again releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation’s armed forces about how long they will be away from home. These strikes do not make for a sound foreign policy.”
-Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA)

“No goal, no objective, not until we have those things and a compelling case is made, then I say, back out of it, because innocent people are going to die for nothing. That’s why I’m against it.”
-Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/5/99

“American foreign policy is now one huge big mystery. Simply put, the administration is trying to lead the world with a feel-good foreign policy.”
-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)

“If we are going to commit American troops, we must be certain they have a clear mission, an achievable goal and an exit strategy.”
-Karen Hughes, speaking on behalf of presidential candidate George W. Bush

Why did they demoralize our brave men and women in uniform?

“I had doubts about the bombing campaign from the beginning…I didn’t think we had done enough in the diplomatic area.”
-Senator Trent Lott (R-MS)

“You think Vietnam was bad? Vietnam is nothing next to Kosovo.”
-Tony Snow, Fox News 3/24/99

“Well, I just think it’s a bad idea. What’s going to happen is they’re going to be over there for 10, 15, maybe 20 years”
-Joe Scarborough (R-FL)

“I’m on the Senate Intelligence Committee, so you can trust me and believe me when I say we’re running out of cruise missles. I can’t tell you exactly how many we have left, for security reasons, but we’re almost out of cruise missles.”
-Senator Inhofe (R-OK)

“I cannot support a failed foreign policy. History teaches us that it is often easier to make war than peace. This administration is just learning that lesson right now. The President began this mission with very vague objectives and lots of unanswered questions. A month later, these questions are still unanswered. There are no clarified rules of engagement. There is no timetable. There is no legitimate definition of victory. There is no contingency plan for mission creep. There is no clear funding program. There is no agenda to bolster our overextended military. There is no explanation defining what vital national interests are at stake. There was no strategic plan for war when the President started this thing, and there still is no plan today”
-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)

“I don’t know that Milosevic will ever raise a white flag”
-Senator Don Nickles (R-OK)

“Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life?”
-Sean Hannity, Fox News, 4/6/99

Why didn’t they support our president in a time of war?

“Victory means exit strategy, and it’s important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is.”
-Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)

“This is President Clinton’s war, and when he falls flat on his face, that’s his problem.”
-Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN)

“The two powers that have ICBMs that can reach the United States are Russia and China. Here we go in. We’re taking on not just Milosevic. We can’t just say, ‘that little guy, we can whip him.’ We have these two other powers that have missiles that can reach us, and we have zero defense thanks to this president.”
-Senator James Inhofe (R-OK)

“You can support the troops but not the president”
-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)

“My job as majority leader is be supportive of our troops, try to have input as decisions are made and to look at those decisions after they’re made … not to march in lock step with everything the president decides to do.”
-Senator Trent Lott (R-MS)

For us to call this a victory and to commend the President of the United States as the Commander in Chief showing great leadership in Operation Allied Force is a farce”
-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)

Why did they blame America first?

Bombing a sovereign nation for ill-defined reasons with vague objectives undermines the American stature in the world. The international respect and trust for America has diminished every time we casually let the bombs fly.”
-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)

“Once the bombing commenced, I think then Milosevic unleashed his forces, and then that’s when the slaughtering and the massive ethnic cleansing really started”
-Senator Don Nickles (R-OK)

“Clinton’s bombing campaign has caused all of these problems to explode”
-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)

“America has no vital interest in whose flag flies over Kosovo’s capital, and no right to attack and kill Serb soldiers fighting on their own soil to preserve the territorial integrity of their own country”
-Pat Buchanan (R)

“These international war criminals were led by Gen. Wesley Clark … who clicked his shiny heels for the commander-in-grief, Bill Clinton.”
-Michael Savage

“This has been an unmitigated disaster … Ask the Chinese embassy. Ask all the people in Belgrade that we’ve killed. Ask the refugees that we’ve killed. Ask the people in nursing homes. Ask the people in hospitals.”
-Representative Joe Scarborough (R-FL)

“It is a remarkable spectacle to see the Clinton Administration and NATO taking over from the Soviet Union the role of sponsoring “wars of national liberation.”
-Representative Helen Chenoweth (R-ID)

“America has no vital interest in whose flag flies over Kosovo’s capital, and no right to attack and kill Serb soldiers fighting on their own soil to preserve the territorial integrity of their own country”
-Pat Buchanan (R)

“By the order to launch air strikes against Serbia, NATO and President Clinton have entered uncharted territory in mankind’s history. Not even Hitler’s grab of the Sudetenland in the 1930s, which eventually led to WW II, ranks as a comparable travesty. For, there are no American interests whatsoever that the NATO bombing will either help, or protect; only needless risks to which it exposes the American soldiers and assets, not to mention the victims on the ground in Serbia.”
-Bob Djurdjevic, founder of Truth in Media
Sound familiar?
Unwarranted bashing is not what the Dems are doing regarding this current mishandled war, if anything, the Repub.’s questioning of Kosovo was premature and unwarranted as it was handled MUCH better than our current conflict. Keep in mind, Clinton was handed the same war plan from the PNAC that Bush was only he was smart enough to say…no way!

Wulingvuan Rocks, China
Huangshan Mountains
Guilin
Yangtze River

I know there natural but are they sensitive? If not what are sensitive nautral/environmental areas in china?

Thanks

Best answer:

Answer by liyuwc12321
I think Wulingyuan is one, and jiuzhaigou, too.
huangshan moutains and guilin have been tourist sites for long time, no matter they were sensitive or not, they arent anymore.
hundreds of million ppl live by the riverside of Yangtze river, I dont think it is sensitive.

I think “sensitive” means being apt to change, I hope I understand the word correctly.

I have a question about visa’s and vaccinations?

Question by Chelsea: I have a question about visa’s and vaccinations?
In September, I’m going on a 22 day cruise to Alaska, Russia, Japan, South Korea, and China.

I live in California, where do I go to get Visa’s for these countries? Can I do it online? And where can I find more information?

Also, what/is there any vaccinations I will need for Russia, Japan, South Korea, and China? Where can I find information on this?
Also, I can’t find my passport at the moment, if I have to order a new one, how much is it and how long does it take?

Best answer:

Answer by Jennifer B
1 – the passport. You need to do this first so you can get the visa for each country needed stamped into the passport. Go to http://travel.state.gov/passport/lost/lost_849.html . You’ll need to fill out a form to report the stolen passport, and also fill out forms and apply in person for a new passport.

It could take 6-8 weeks to get the new passort, and will cost $ 100 (not including cost of pictures and the local passport processing fees if any).

#2. Visa – You should not need a visa for Japan or South Korea. You do need a visa for Russia and China. Go to the website for the consulates of Russia and China in the United States and they will tell you what you need to do to get the visa. Usually it involves an application and fees to be paid. If you are close enough to the consulate you can usually do this in person. And if you don’t live close enough, you’ll send them the paperwork, fees and your passport by courier.

#3 Immunization – double check this list from the Centers from Disease Control regarding immunizations to where you will be visiting/what you will be doing in each country. Your doctor may be able to give you these immunizations. If he/she cannot, then look for a “travel medicine clinic”
