DJP Update 8-28-2016: 1- A new podcast series. The DJP Update Podcast (enhanced with images on YouTube). 2- Lagniappe.

Here is the description of number 1: Published on Aug 27, 2016
Podcast 1: Dr. Richard E. Anderson. This is the first of the DJP UPDATE PODCAST SERIES showing enhanced podcasts with images and music added. These podcasts feature individuals who have a passion outside of their profession, work, or family. Podcast 1 features Dr. Richard E. Anderson, a physician and an executive who has a passion for WILDERNESS TRAVEL and PHOTOGRAPHY. See the ICE CAVE and more. Akin to a spiritual experience. Enjoy!
DJP Update Podcast…Wilderness Travel and Photography

The Ice Cave: “It was very much akin to a religious experience…something magnificent. It was awe-inspiring.”

or click on image below to to see if that takes you to video.

FYI: I have no connection to ads that YouTube places on my IntrepidResources YouTube site. Will investigate how to eliminate them. I guess that is how YouTube makes money as getting a YouTube site is free.

The Future: I have additional podcasts in this series that are in production. Galaxy Hunter coming soon. Fascinating to see the talent and passion of individuals in endeavors outside of their daily profession.

Thanks to my nephew Dr. Michael Brown who helped me assemble my recordings and the photos into the enhanced podcast using iMovie and a few other programs.

LAGNIAPPE: Recently I joined Robin in Detroit where she was visiting dear friends, Susan and Ernie. They took me to the Annual Woodward Dream Cruise. All types of cars cruising on Woodward Ave!
http://www.detroitnews.com/autos/woodward-dream-cruise/

As Wikipedia says: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodward_Dream_Cruise

“The Woodward Dream Cruise is the world’s largest one-day automotive event, drawing about 1.5 million people and 40,000 classic cars each year from around the globe. Spectators can see muscle cars, street rods, custom, collector and special interest vehicles dating across several decades.”

We also went to the Ford Museum. More cars and planes! Thanks, Susan and Ernie! Thanks to Robin for having thoughtful friends!

Sample of my tweets about Woodward Dream Cruise. Lots of photos taken. Two cameras working hard! Check out links in tweets.

DJP Update 6-12-2016: Unable to attend AMA Annual Meeting; this video contains the message I would have shared to anyone interested in my views.

DJP Update 6-12-2016: Unable to attend AMA Annual Meeting; this video contains the message I would have shared to anyone interested in my views.

For multiple reasons, including my recent neck injury secondary to being in a car accident when our car was stopped and another car crashed into the rear of our car, I am not at AMA Annual Meeting.

This 24 minute speech captures what I try to teach medical students, doctors, and lawmakers in addition to the importance of medical liability reform.

Tired of PPACA (ACA)? Frustrated by MACRA? Wish you could spend more time with patients rather than electronic medical records designed by regulators for other purposes? ADVOCATE for the right to balance bill what the patient and doctor agree regardless of the payor of insurance (long-standing AMA policy). Stop going along to get along. Withdraw support for failed government policies distorting the practice of Medicine. Review my 6 Commandments of Medicine.

Stay well and be safe. Unfortunately the world is becoming more dangerous as obvious by terror attacks. Increase your vigilance and protect your loved ones.

We have been the land of the free only because of the brave. Never forget that.

DJP Update 11-16-2015: 1- R.I.P. Dr. Gustavo A. Colón; 2. The world on alert: Terrorism

1- R.I.P. Dr. Gustavo A. Pirulo Colón June 14, 1938 – November 12, 2015

Dr. Gus Colon passed away on November 12, 2015. I visited him just before he died and told him how much love there was for him. I told him he was the best of the best. The American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Inc. has a beautiful tribute to Gus at the link immediately below. Be sure to read it. Thanks to Dr. Mark Constantian for sharing that link.

Gus was a talented plastic surgeon, a great artist whose office had compelling works he painted, an awesome stand-up comic who could keep medical audiences laughing and laughing, a fascinating historian who could mesmerize audience, and much more. He was my intern briefly in the early 60s and he and I often reflected on our first meeting in the Charity Hospital Emergency Room. Most of all, Gus was a kind loving man who treasured family and friends. He always was the first to offer help with any problem. He will be missed. Robin and I extend our sincere condolences to his family.

Here is the published newspaper obituary:

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/theneworleansadvocate/obituary.aspx?n=gustavo-a-pirulo-coln&pid=176507081&fhid=5630

In this obituary the time and place for the services are listed:

Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at 12:30pm at St. Clement of Rome Catholic Church, 4317 Richland Ave, Metairie 70002. Visitation at the church will begin at 10:30 am until service time.
2- Terrorism abounds in the world and the latest horror happened to innocents in Paris. It is time to show true leadership. Identify the cause. Eliminate it. Can’t do half-way measures. Otherwise it continues and will strike repeatedly.

Here is one of my tweets about terrorists in Paris:

DJPNEWS
Sad. #Terrorism : identify and eliminate. True #Leadership needed and not just poll-tested words. Vive la France! https://t.co/JulJ9mjBX5
11/13/15, 4:25 PM

Surely it is time to focus on this evil and have a strategy to eliminate it. The world truly is a dangerous place in 2015 and leadership is needed.

There are many opinions about what to do next. Here are some comments from a former chair of AMA’s Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs (CEJA), Rob Tenery, MD:

http://robtenerymd.com/blog.php

You may agree or disagree with Dr. Tenery but a full debate with FACTS is needed. Are we at war? If war, then no half-way measures. Our brave soldiers are at risk if we don’t give them a clear mission with full support. You can be certain that the terrorists are planning a Paris-like attack on America this very moment. Washington, D.C.? New York City again? Blowing the levees in New Orleans to recreate Katrina destruction? Time to end the political preening.

Stay well!

DJP Update 3-28-2015 Race Day! THE UMSTEAD 100 MILE ENDURANCE RUN Today!

DJP Update 3-28-2015 Race Day! THE UMSTEAD 100 MILE ENDURANCE RUN Today!

A note from Donald Jr, Executive Director/CEO of the Medical Association of Georgia, is below. Trey Reese is an attorney and also will run the race for the Think About It Campaign.

————-
Dear all:

On behalf of Trey and I, I want to say thank you for the support of the Think About It Campaign. We are en route to the Umstead 100 Mile Endurance Race in Raleigh, North Carolina. Trey and I will individually attempt to 100 miles in less than 30 hours.

We want to say thank you as we raised over $40,000 from over 80 donors.

If you want to follow our progress during the race, please follow my Twitter account below (DPalmisanoMAG) or Trey (treyreese). My father will also be using Twitter at DJPNews. My account will be run by my oldest son, so hopefully it will be timely and accurate.

The race begins at 6 am tomorrow. Weather is predicted to be cold.

Again, thank you for the support in the campaign as we will use the money to address the abuse associated with prescription drugs.

Let’s Stop Prescription Drug Abuse – http://www.mag.org/news/articles/run-promo
———————————————

Excerpt from the MAG Foundation:

MAG Foundation President Jack M. Chapman Jr., M.D., applauded ‘Team Think About It,’ stating that, “What started as a simple concept evolved into one of our most successful fundraising events ever – and I am excited to know that we are going to use the money that was raised to purchase Naloxone (which first responders can use to offset the effects of drug overdoses) and prescription drug disposal boxes and to produce a video that will promote good prescribing practices.”

Dr. Chapman also thanked an anonymous donor who accounted for $10,000 of the $40,100 that was raised. He says, “This was an incredible act of selfless generosity – someone who simply wanted to help the people who live in this state.”
——————————-

DJP comment: I want to thank all of the folks on the DJP Update who sent in money for this campaign, especially Dr. anonymous on the DJP Update list who called me and wanted his name listed as anonymous for the $1000. That message was forwarded on to DJP Jr.

Follow the progress of DJP Jr and Trey and in the 100 mile run starting at 6:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time in William B. Umstead State Park in Raleigh, NC.
