"A hospital is perhaps the most hostile work environment." It is indeed one of the most hostile work environments in existence. Doctors are actually some of the easier personalities to deal with unless they've got the God complex. If one dare cross a nurse there will be hell to pay. Managers in healthcare are very turf-happy and territorial.
but ageist, definitely.
Interesting any industry feels it can run with a hands off mode towards the customer.
and give touch-screen keyboards the same feel as using a real keyboard?
That statement can apply to a good share of American industries from computers to healthcare.
I'll save my pre-meditated attempts at injecting clumsy Republican-bashing for stories dealing with vast numbers of closeted gays thank you very much!
Amazing how senior management doesn't really have to deal with true capitalism, only the minions.
Yes ageism is quite alive and well in IT and other areas of the job market. To answer the previous poster's question of "Where's the problem?" the problem is the original article is talking about the supposedly best and the brightest of IT, the top grads of high-ranking IT schools not your run of the mill community college/generic state U or Kaplan/Devry/ITT Tech grad. The former are seen as leaders of their profession. When many of the leaders are simply out to make as much $$$$ as fast as they can many others adopt the same mentality. There is little movement of working to help for the greater good of society. It's how much can I get and how quickly can I get it?
No the 50-year old consultant will be paid to empty the trash and scrub the toilets. No way the Sesame Street crowd will let an old foggie anywhere near something kewl.
It's a very rural area although about 30 min. from the closest city of any size, that being Waterloo. Cell service is spotty when one ventures off Hwy 20 with any carrier other than U.S. Cellular. I have to laugh at AT&T's and Verizon's coverage maps because having used both carriers in that area. That's simply not happening. Back to the point of discussion I know companies in that region such as Oran Mutual that are truly the only game in town. I think this issues goes beyond bandwidth and pipelines. Small-town telephone cooperatives really operate in a world and a kingdom of their own. They really are in their own little world in more ways than one.
" why the guy does not let MS know about the bug" The entire point of all this to me is that MS should know about the bug and all the others. It's their job to know. Who is ultimately responsible at MS for mistakes such as this? No one? How many people must that company have who test their products for security vulnerabilities?
It's called HIPAA. The so-called medical privacy act only ensures common citizens have no access to one's medical records. But HIPAA also gives government greater access to comb through anything its little hearts desire. Thanks for nothing Ted Kennedy.
and then finish at a state school. Making sure it's a state CC with lower tuition get all the Gen Ed out of the way there. Not everyone has to or will go or has the study skills to go to a four-year school right out of high school. If you're God's next gift to medicine, science, engineering, etc.......the scholly $$$ will be there. But for the mortals there's nothing wrong with a solid two years of study at a good community college.

A new device from University of Washington engineers and a company called NanoFacture can extract human DNA from fluid samples in a simpler, more efficient and environmentally friendly way than conventional methods. It will give hospitals and labs a much easier way to separate DNA from human fluid samples, which will help with genome sequencing, disease diagnosis and forensic investigations.
