Hello Forkers in December

This is a bit of a sermon and probably very presumptuous of me, so you may not want to read any further.


PRESUMED CONSENT FOR ORGAN DONATION.


A lot of doctors are coming out against this, but are not discussing some of the key issues.


Most organs come from patients dying on ICU.


Many of these people do now carry organ donation cards.


We still have to ask the relatives permission to obtain the organs.


About 35% of these relatives then refuse to allow donation.


Presumed consent works very well in several other countries, which have much higher organ donation rates than we do.

That's a great photo, considering how it was taken.


I wouldn't manage that degree of coordination.

Obelixx, you are fortunate in being a strong and resourceful person, but not everyone sees things like you.


For many people, particularly men, it can be very hard to make the leap, from knowing you are lonely, to actually being able to do something about it.


This can easily become a downward spiral, the longer you are lonely, the lower your self esteem, and the less likely you are to try and solve the problem.

OH got a call in the middle of the night, the BBC wanted an urgent press release, they had heard early morning tree felling was happening today, and wanted her company's response.
