    30 Years of Community Leadership, Advocacy and Activism

    Rich Wolitski: Good morning, everyone. I’m sure you all know who I am by now, but I’m Rich Wolitski, and it’s been an honor to be one of the co-chairs that worked to put the conference together this year. So what did you all think? Did we do good? [Applause]. Great. So before we begin our final panel of the conference, I was asked to share just some thoughts, some reflections about my own experience at the conference. And I have to say my first emotions were ones of joy and relief. When we started planning this conference, we weren’t sure how many people were really going to come. We…

    JUDY WOODRUFF: Good evening. I’m Judy Woodruff. On the “NewsHour” tonight: a country on strike.

As the U.S. House drafts articles of impeachment, Mark Shields and David Brooks are here to analyze the process and the president’s troubled summit with NATO allies.

    Clinical Medical Assistant | Health Care Career Programs

    I’m really excited about the ability to work with the San Diego State graduates. They are to a person; energetic, bright, people going places. Its tough out there just applying without experience, and I love that the program itself comes with the externship. Thats just like the best part I think because it provides a comprehensive learning experience. The program actually coordinated this externship for me and Dr. O’Leary, pretty much, he liked my work ethic, and he hired me before my externship hours were even completed. The instructor was really great. She was actually a clinical medical assistant herself, for like 25 years, so she could really teach us…

    Karriere machen mit dem Trainee-Programm Controlling | Evonik

    Career at Evonik Traineeship Finance, Controlling & Accounting You always think that controlling is a very dry subject, only numbers… But in the last 1,5 years I realized that this is not true. Due to all these different projects, you can certainly act out your creativity. I could prove my self-responsibility from the very beginning. I was immediately assigned with the first tasks that I had to deal with independently. That showed my how much trust the department placed in me. In one of my departments I had a really interesting task, for example: I did an economic efficiency calculation for a new product and got to know many people…

    President Obama Signs Health Reform Into Law

    (applause) The Vice President: Thank you all. (applause) Let them celebrate a little bit. Audience: Fired up! Ready to go! Fired up! Ready to go! The Vice President: Thank you. Mr. President, I think we got a happy room here. (laughter) It seems ridiculous to say thank you all for being here. (laughter) Ladies and gentlemen, to state the obvious, this is a historic day. (applause) In our business you use that phrase a lot, but I can’t think of a day in the 37 years that I’ve been a United States senator and the short time I’ve been Vice President that it is more appropriately stated. This is a…

    Justice Scalia Writes Guide for Interpreting the Law

    bjbj”9″9 JEFFREY BROWN: And now to a rare and very inside look at the philosophy and practice of a hugely influential and sometimes provocative Supreme Court justice. Margaret Warner talks with Antonin Scalia. MARGARET WARNER: Well, for 26 years on the Supreme Court, Justice Antonin Scalia has long grounded his opinions in the words of the Constitution and the law. Now he and lexicographer Bryan Garner have issued a 567-page book laying out for other judges how and why they should do the same. It outlines nearly 60 must-do canons of interpretation and dismisses another 13 notions as wrong-headed. The new book is “Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts.…

    What really matters at the end of life | BJ Miller

    Well, we all need a reason to wake up. For me, it just took 11,000 volts. I know you’re too polite to ask, so I will tell you. One night, sophomore year of college, just back from Thanksgiving holiday, a few of my friends and I were horsing around, and we decided to climb atop a parked commuter train. It was just sitting there, with the wires that run overhead. Somehow, that seemed like a great idea at the time. We’d certainly done stupider things. I scurried up the ladder on the back, and when I stood up, the electrical current entered my arm, blew down and out my feet,…

    Patients and Policy: One Physician’s Approach to Advocacy

    I first started my involvement in Mass Med when I was a medical student, which is more years ago than I like to admit. And it’s done so many things for me. I’ve gotten involved with, I’ve met people from across the state, across the specialties. It has created lifelong friendships that have been incredibly important. And it’s given me the opportunity to be involved in making policy and making changes on a statewide level that I never would have been able to do without the Medical Society. I’ve been involved in making policy since the beginning of my medical school career. It was that realization that if you take…
