Let us Start
Here’s how a doctor explains it:
A woman in her late 20’s came to the hospital today with her 8th pregnancy
She said to me me “My mum told me that I am the breadwinner for the family.”
I asked her to explain. She said that she can make babies and babies get money from the State for the family.
It goes like this:
The Grandma calls the Department for work and pensions, and states that the unemployed daughter is not capable of caring for all of her kids. DWP agrees, and tells her the children will need to go into foster care.
The Grandma then volunteers to be the foster parent, and receives a cheque for £700 per child each month.
Total yearly income:
£58,800 soon to become £67200 when the 8th one is born, tax-free and nobody has to go to work!
In fact, they get more if there is no husband/father/man in the home! The brother does not count.
Not to mention free dental treatment, free housing, free council tax free school dinners, free tuition fees at college or Uni, free eyecare and glasses, free prescriptions and various other benefits…
Total value of all benefits combined probably approaching £100,000 per annum which would require an income of around £148000 to create.
That’s about my salary as a senior consultant with years of experience and surgical skills in a central London teaching hospital.
Indeed, Grandma was correct that her fertile daughter is the “breadwinner” for the family.
This is how the politicians spend our taxes. When this generous programme was invented in the ’60s, the Great Society architects forgot to craft an end date… and now we are hopelessly overrun with people who vote only for those who will continue to keep them on the dole…..
No wonder our country is broke!
Worse, our Muslim brothers have been paying attention, and by mandating that each Muslim family have eleven children, they will soon replace the voting bloc above and can be running this country.
Are we alarmed yet, is anybody listening?

Don’t forget to pay your taxes!!
There are a lot of “breadwinners” depending on you!
Well? Is anybody listening??
Do we all have to wait for someone to translate this into Australian?

iRobot Corp., makers of the beloved Roomba (and a lot more), announced that it would be investing $6 million in InTouch Health, a telemedicine company operating in 80 hospitals around the world. Though $6 million represents just a minority stake in the company, it’s–needless to say–a substantial investment, and a strong expansion of a joint development and licensing agreement the two companies had announced last summer.
Though the Roomba robo-vacuum is probably what put iRobot on your radar, it’s just the tip of the iceberg of what the company does. iRobot. I attended an iRobot event last year, and was surprised to learn that much of what the company makes is for the military–for instance, the 510 Packbot, which is tasked with disarming bombs. iRobot Packbots have also been at hand at Fukushima in the wake of last year’s tsunami.
Given the company’s broad interests (and success–it brought in $465 million in revenues last year, per InformationWeek), it makes sense for iRobot to set its sights on the hospital ward as a new frontier. InTouch is a good partner, “as one of the first developers of FDA-cleared telemedicine devices,” iRobot CEO Colin Angle said in a press release.
What sorts of products will a stronger iRobot/InTouch partnership yield? It’s too soon to say for sure, but Angle and others have dropped hints that the team will be wanting to build on iRobot’s Ava, a tablet-compatible telepresence robot. ForbesVideo was at CES this year, and gives a good introduction:iRobot Forbes Video
Part of the idea of the partnership, to judge from Angle’s statements, is simply to make telemedicine bots more user-friendly. Currently, the real technophiles among physicians’ ranks may use InTouch Health’s current robot. “But more sophisticated technology would make these robots easier to use by a broader class of physicians,” Angle told InformationWeek, “not just the technological enthusiasts.”
Healthcare robotics is rapidly becoming a crowded field–Toyota showed off some if its robotic nurses recently, and robotic exoskeletons are restoring mobility to the paralyzed–but with iRobot’s track record and name brand, combined with InTouch’s experience already doing Grand Rounds, the two have an early-mover advantage.
Indeed, Angle already seems so certain of the new venture’s success in the hospital that he appears to be looking into the next, related, and potentially much larger market: home-care. “If we have proven technologies that work in a hospital setting, we’ll be looking at a cost-reduction exercise to translate that experience to the home,” he said. In the not-too-distant future, medical telepresence robots may not just be a staple in hospitals, but in the homes of the ailing and elderly, too.
All of which points to another instance in which new technology enables a throwback: With telepresence bots in the home, maybe we’ll see a resurgence (and modification) of an almost extinct medical practice–call it the robotic house call.

The Dining Hall of the National Defence Academy, Khadakwasla.
At the entrance of the Dining Hall of NDA Khadakwasla, there is a table set for one, with the chair tilted forward. This table is set for the Armed Forces Personnel who are Prisoners of War and forgotten, in the hope that they will return one day.The Placard on the table has following written on it:“The table set is small, for one, symbolizing the frailty of one prisoner against his oppressors.
The single rose displayed in a vase reminds us of the families and loved ones of our comrades-in-arms who keep their faith awaiting their return.
The Red Ribbon tied so prominently on the vase is reminiscent of the red ribbon worn upon the lapel and breasts of thousands who bear witness to their unyielding determination to demand a proper accounting of our missing.
The candle is unlit, symbolizing the upward reach of their unconquerable spirit.
The slice of Lemon is on the bread plate, to remind us of the bitter fate.
There is salt upon the bread plate – symbolic of the families’ tears as they wait.
The Glass is inverted, they cannot toast with us this night.
The chair – it is empty. They are not here.
Remember! All of you who served with them and called them comrades, who depended upon their might and aid, and relied upon them, for surely, they have not forsaken you.
Remember until the day they come home…”What really can be the reason for our Politicians & Bureaucrats to so be blissfully unconcerned about the plight of the countless of our Armed Forces Personnel who have time and again unflinchingly surrendered their life and freedom only to uphold our Country’s HONOUR, DIGNITY, and INTIGRITY ? ? ?Is it that our Country’s Honour, Dignity, and Intigrity of means NOTHING to them???NOTE : IF we circulate this among all our friends and well-wishers, may be, just may be, one day our self-serving Politicians and Bureaucrats may start thinking about our Country’s HONOUR, DIGNITY, and INTEGRITY.
