Oh no, the Friday Funnies, full of cringe-making ‘funnies’. Try to enjoy them – they’re there to help you prepare for your weekend (you know you’ll need a drink after looking at them!)
I recently posted a list of ‘doctor’ or health care rules courtesy of Dr Rob of Musings of a Distractible Mind – this is a link to the accompanying patient rules, I thought they might be useful.
For a tasty snack, probably designed to make sure you remain healthy of spirit and soul while less so of artery and heart…take a look at this recipe for shortbread from Borealnz’s blog
The brilliant Ben Goldacre never ceases to amaze me with his wry comments on both his Twitter feed and his Bad Science blog. He’s never shy of taking on the misinformed or the shonky – and his sense of humour is great. This is a good example. Voices of the Ancients, debunking mystic nonsense published in British newspapers.
Last but not least. Let it never be said that I shied away from promoting the hardy souls who toil in the world’s largest island (or is that the smallest continent).
First up is NOI Group, or Neuro Orthopaedic Institute, with the colourful David Butler who sports more pairs of groovy glasses than anyone I’ve ever seen. This is the site for mirrorbox, laterality and Explain Pain.
And next is the loquacious Lorimer Moseley who, along with a few others, blogs on Body in Mind. His blog features not only some of his most up-to-date research carried out on pain, but also promotes new PhD’s by publishing a brief summary of their research too. You can follow them on Twitter as well (and I believe there is a Facebook page or group to join also).
The last, but not an Australian, is the wonderful Diane Jacobs, who is a most prolific reader and linker on Twitter under the name @dfjpt, and also on Facebook with the group ‘Neuroscience and Pain Science for Manual Physical Therapists’
Well, that should leave you with a few thoughts links for the weekend – enjoy!
