In my opinion the human interface for that should always be plain language first and code second. It's almost impossible for them to screw entering text other than misspelling, it's trivial to mess up the code (or code selection from a list).

Let them type the plan language description, do a lookup of potential matches and let them pick the code from those (99% of the time). Of course you'd keep the original plain language entry too, so it could always be double checked by someone else.

How many modern digital test devices which would push out a number like 129.4 don't provide a standardized way to directly output that to the EHR? Are there even standards to directly couple the EHR to devices running tests?

In an ideal world digital data wouldn't make a sidestep through manual data entry.

Islam wants to convert us, lying and cheating and violence against non Muslims is justified for that cause.

Judaism want to rule us, lying and cheating and violence against goy is generally far more permissible than against fellow Jews (especially the lying and cheating part).

Reciprocity is not high on the agenda for either.

Now, most or maybe even all of them were ethnically cleansed by the terror threat of the Jews rather than a more hands on approach of course. There is a certain elegance in the near bloodless ethnic cleansing the Jews did in Israel, of course not entirely bloodless since you need to make a few examples, but ethnic cleansing it was.

So technically you are right, they were not evicted. They were chases away by terror and not let back to their property.

If importing and radicalizing Islam was just a tool to justify totalitarian rule, well mission accomplished, it is justified.

There might be alternatives with more freedom but the status quo isn't it. Le Pen's call to rearm France's citizens is a good step towards creating a society in which more freedom can be possible again as long as the fifth column is present.

It's worse, the entire new European transfer system works the same way. Anyone with a merchant account can plunder Europe wide now.

We had the chance to move to an explicit authorization system for bank transfers when we created the European system, instead the banks decided to keep the old systems and spread it around Europe for extra easy fraud. Banking is being run by morons, assholes and sociopaths.

With GM labeling I get the choice to pay a minute amount more for a minute amount less risk, that's not an irrational decision. The fact that someone somewhere in the chain can make a lot of money from GM is completely and utterly irrelevant to me. People still buy the cheapest shit with GM labeling any way, it just allows a niche for people to avoid it ... but somehow only the rich and hobby farmers are allowed such niches, the poor shouldn't be allowed a choice since they aren't smart enough to make it.
