Late one evening, I received a text from my oldest daughter. “What in medicine, that we do now, will we think is barbaric in 50 years?” Wow. They play more provocative bar games now than they played when I was in my 20s. I promptly texted back my knee-jerk response: “chemotherapy.” As we are on […] Find jobs at Careers by Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

When To Talk to Kids About Student Debt

I had a conversation today with a young man about his major. Interestingly, it led us to talk about his student loans and how much student debt he might have to pay off upon graduation. This was his first discussion about what his student debt might cost him. To this point, perhaps he thought of it as “free money.” By the end of the discussion, he was equating his loans to slavery. Or at least indentured servitude. Apparently his parents did not have the money talk with their son bef...

With strike looming, will LAUSD and teachers’ union return to contract talks?

LOS ANGELES — With a potential strike just a week away, the union representing Los Angeles Unified teachers said Thursday it is prepared to meet with school district labor negotiators Monday if they have a “legitimate and clear” contract offer to discuss, an offer the district said it welcomes. Whether the two sides will actually return to the bargaining table was not immediately clear. The district on Wednesday accused United Teachers Los Angeles of refusing to engage in further negotiating ses...

An Animated History of Versailles: Six Minutes of Animation Show the Construction of the Grand Palace Over 400 Years

Few tourists making their first trip to France go home without having seen Versailles. But why do so many want to see Versailles in the first place? Yes, its history goes all the way back to the 1620s, with its comparatively modest beginnings as a hunting lodge built for King Louis XIII, but much in Europe goes back quite a bit further. It did house the French royal family for generations, but absolute monarchy hasn't been a favored institution in France for quite some time. Only the mos...

An Illustrated and Interactive Dante’s Inferno: Explore a New Digital Companion to the Great 14th-Century Epic Poem

Medieval conceptions of hell may have little effect on the laws and social mores of our secular age. But they sure as hell did in the late 15th century, when the first illustrated editions of Dante’s Inferno appeared. A 1481 edition contained art based on a series of unfinished illustrations by Renaissance master Sandro Botticelli. In 1491, the first fully-illustrated edition of the Inferno arrived. As were most printed works at the time, these books were elaborate and expensive, reflecting the...

Safety Last, the 1923 Movie Featuring the Most Iconic Scene from Silent Film Era, Just Went Into the Public Domain

Safety Last, the 1923 film starring Harold Lloyd, features one of the most iconic scenes from the silent film era. Writes Roger Ebert, the scene above is "by general agreement the most famous shot in silent comedy: a man in a straw hat and round horn-rim glasses, hanging from the minute hand of a clock 12 stories above the city street. Strange, that this shot occurs in a film few people have ever seen. Harold Lloyd's Safety Last (1923), like all of his films, was preserved by the comedia...

Community Service for the College Application? Look at the YMCA.

Families often ask me for guidance on selecting the best community service and leadership development programs for their students. I recently came across a program organized by the local YMCA in my area that illustrates how easy it really is for students to get involved in community service. However, too often community service is just a notch in the belt or a box to be ticked. Students do it, but most just put in the hours without actually accomplishing or learning much of anything. Som...
