Business / Re: UBA Minimum Account Balance Now N25,000 by MaiSuya(m): 11:40am On Jul 08, 2011
The idea behind the might be lofty one, but the speed of its introduction and the lack of proper enlightenment makes the whole scenario untidy.

How many of their 7milloin customers know about its U-Mo or E-banking crap??

Even though the account I maintain with them hardly goes below over 10x their new minimum, and so would not be affected by the new policy, I must confess I'm very uncomfortable with it and am seriously considering closing the account.

After all, what stops them from increasing it 50k or even a 100kwhen it suits them?

Well done pharmacists!
Now if only the MDCN will hunt down all the quacks killing people in NIgeria, Life expectancy may just improve.

You mind them. While other councils are looking out for the welfare of their professionals by engaging in acts that protect their interests,  MCDN's only concern is collecting registration/licensing fee.  angry

The other day The medical Lab Council was at my facility and threatened to shut the lab down unless a registered lab scientist, and not a technician as was the case, was employed to care for the lab. \\

afam4eva:

Abeg make we hear word. How about the lower the minum wage the higher the poverty which can lead to death. So roads are more important to human life.

I think you are missing the point here. how many people are under the employ of the State govt? it doesn't make sense, to me at least, to spend so much money on relatively small group of people, when such resources could be more usefully deployed to better to lives of a much larger number.

it doesn't have to be road alone; other capital projects that would impact the lives of the citizens should be embarked upon.

@wegga

Continuous exposure to viruses especially HIV makes some LovePeddlers HIV resistant
. Read about discordant couples.
If you slept wth one you are likely to get infected immediately but she wil not get down wth the virus.The moment she stops the trade then shes bound to get sick with it AIDS.
Your gf thats not continously exposed will infect u and get down wth it. but that pro on the street will never get down with it yet she carries it wthin her.

Research on that.



[size=16pt]FA FA FA FOWWWWLLLLL!!!![/size]

continuous exposure to the virus conferring resistance? pleaase. . .

get it right:

resistance to the virus is caused by a genetic predisposition that prevents the virus from attaching to the CD4 cell. More like the cell lacking a door for the virus to enter. This has indeed been observed in about 1% of caucasian population.

It has nothing to do with the number of times a person has sex, heck, were that the case, then Lagos and Kano would have the lowest prevalence of HIV/AIDS among CMWs in the country. FYI, Kano has a staggering 50% prevalence among CMW. The figure for Lagos is equally high, though I can't remember the actual number.

Discordant couples?

there are many reasons for this. some folks have been found to be what we called 'long term non progressers'; they are actually positive, but will not come down with AIDS for a very long time, possibly during their life time, for a variety of reasons which I cant go into here. Note however the reasons do not include the number of times a person has sex. Also note this is different from those described in the case above, who will never test positive.

Such long term proegerssors can transmit the virus to folks who will immediately come down with AIDS. the latter are called Rapid prgressors.

what I suspect you were trying to describe are those that are highly exposed but remained negative ( or appear to). This has indeed been found in some Kenyan prostsistues. the reasons for these are complex, but like the case above, has nothing to do with the number of times a person has sex.

Health / Re: Medical Council Outlaws Strike For Doctors by MaiSuya(m): 2:02pm On Jul 05, 2011
Evil Brain:

You cannot deny doctors the rights that everybody else has just because its convenient. If a shoemaker has the right to stay at home then so does a doctor. If you think their services are so important, then you should pay them what they are worth. When they complain about their work conditions, you should try and address their concerns quickly. The problem in Nigeria is that strikes are the only language our useless government seems to understand. You can't negotiate with the government, you can't reason with it. Your only option is to go on strike.  Now, instead of doing something about the appalling work conditions doctors are subjected to, they want to resort to gestapo tactics. Well good luck to them. They'll only succeed in driving even more young doctors out of the country.

Once, when I was in medical school, the residents didn't get paid for about 6 months for one reason or the other. After the fourth month of working for free, they went on strike. Of course, the government immediately invoked the "no work, no pay" rule despite the strike being all about working without pay. I remember one of the senior residents pulling me to one side and advising me to start reading for foreign medical license exams so I could leave Nigeria. "This country doesn't deserve us" is what he said.

Best advice I ever got.




Over 80% of our colleagues especially those in the state are looking for their way out of the country. Federal centres even dey try small. At least they manage implement conmess. If take a look at the conditions in some state hospitals, you'll weep for the profession.

By the time I'm through with NGO I'm currently engaged in, whose conditions are similar to those obtainable in 'saner climes' but which unfortunately will be concluding its operations in Naija be next year, I can't imagine going back to the rot in public sector. Na to check out be the next move.  cool

hercules07:

Who regulates the Medical sector, is it the ministries or this council, I do not think they have any powers to swoop on anybody, they should go through the proper legal system jare.

well, its the medical council that regulates the sector. from swearing-in of fresh graduates, setting standards for medical/dental education in Naija, issuing/revoking licenses for practice. . .they are more or less the alpha and omega  when it comes to the regulation of medical practice in Nigeria.

whether they can outlaw strikes, a prerogative of every worker under a registered union, of which the medical doctor is one, is another case altogether. I foresee battle ahead between NMA and the Council.

kalokalo:

In saner climes, any medical practitioner who abandons his duty post for whatever reason that results in death or grievous harm to patients will have his medical license permanently revoked. He will be sued by his patients  for all his assets.

That is how serious they they take medical practise. Nigerians are very docile folks. If we start to do the above in Nigeria, the shenanigans of doctors will stop!!

really? I like to have examples of such 'saner climes' where the working conditions are as appalling as it is here.

Health / Medical Council Outlaws Strike For Doctors by MaiSuya(m): 3:28pm On Jul 04, 2011
Medical doctors can no longer go on strike, the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) has declared.

The highest decision-making body for doctors and dentists in the country said sanctions await any doctor that flouts the new directives agreed upon at the last stakeholders’ meeting in Abuja on June 23.

Dr. Roger Makanjuola, Chairman of the Council, told reporters in Abuja at the weekend that doctors could only go on strike in extreme cases.

He noted that certain measures must be put in place before doctors can abandon their duty posts.

Besides, he said before embarking on a strike, permission must be sought from and approval given by the central committee of the MDCN, which has not been the case in previous industrial actions.

Reading a communiqué at the end of the meeting, Makanjuola said: “It is unethical to go on strike. Practitioners must respect the provisions of the Code of Medical Ethics in Nigeria as prescribed by the MDCN. Having sworn to the Hippocratic Oath doctors should not go on strike because the oath says, first, the health of my patient shall be my first consideration and secondly that I will maintain the utmost respect for human life.

“These two components of the oath are clearly in conflict with strikes. If we do not intend to abide by the Hippocratic Oath, then we should stop swearing to it,” he said.

Though Makanjuola said doctors could express their grievances when such are genuine, he added that the Medical Code of Ethics allowed medical and dental practitioners to go on strike only in extreme circumstances.

He said: “When such industrial actions occur, the care of our patients is protected. The code stipulates that no patient can be abandoned in the midst of his or her treatment. A striking doctor must make arrangements to hand over the continued care of his patients before he leaves his post.

“Also, provision must be made for the continued provision of services for accident and emergencies and the care of those with serious illnesses and life-threatening conditions”.

On the possibility of governments and hospital management latching on the new directives to turn down demands for salary enhancement or provision of working tools or health infrastructures, Makanjuola said such could occur.

He said: “This is because, if the doctors have no tools to work with, coupled with an environment unsuitable for job, naturally he would explore all options first, then if everything fails to achieve redress, then the last option would be to down tool.

“What we are saying is that if any doctor goes on strike and it is reported to the Council, we will investigate it and if found culpable, sanctions would be imposed,” he emphasised.

He also said the Council was set to swoop on individuals that used fake imported medical equipment that diagnoses and treats all aliments.

Politics / Re: Child's Whine Is The Most Annoying And Distracting Sound by MaiSuya(m): 10:32pm On Jun 26, 2011
splashbaby:

THE sound of fingernails on a blackboard, people having loud conversations on mobile phones in public - the list of things that annoy us is extensive.

But the sound of a child whining is the most irritating in the world to adults, scientists say.

A study found that a whining kid is the most effective way of distracting people carrying out elementary cognitive tasks.

Participants who were asked to do simple subtraction while listening to a range of noises - including machine noise and infant cries - made more mistakes and completed fewer problems while listening to a whining child.

"You're basically doing less work and doing it worse when you're listening to the whines," said study co-author Rosemarie Sokol Chang, a professor of psychology at the State University of New York.

The results weren't affected by whether or not the participants had children.
