Sandra G. Boodman, The Washington Post Published 10:03 am PDT, Saturday, April 20, 2019 Kimberly Ho, a newly minted nurse at Children's National Medical Center just off a 12-hour overnight shift, struggled to focus on a presentation about working with sexually traumatized children and adolescents. As the picture of a skin infection flashed on the screen, the 22-year-old snapped to attention. The instructor was recounting the story of a teenage patient who had been given an incorrect diagnosis by a doctor in training - a breach of hospital protocol that had caused an uproar. The lecture, aimed at new staff members, emphasized the importance of working within the chain of command. The girl's actual diagnosis was largely beside the point - except to Ho. "I thought, 'Whoa, that looks a lot like my mom,' " Ho said she remembers thinking as she typed the name of the disease into her phone. For more than two years Ho's mother, Tuyet Le, now 56, had been battling a series of … [Read more...] about For three years her skin ulcers and pain would flare, then vanish, stumping doctors.

OK, fair enough – I wasn’t exactly mad on the dancing. I don’t think Theresa May is going to be on Strictly any time soon. Whoever convinced her it would be dead cool to walk on stage at the party conference and jig about to an Abba song needs a bit of invasive brain surgery, right now. Theresa May stuns Conservative Party Conference by dancing into her speech It was like a remake of Re-Animator, or Night Of The Living Dead. There’s no point in Theresa trying to tell us she’s the life and soul of the party and actually a bloody good laugh. We know she isn’t. She’s about as charismatic as an underdone crumpet on a wet Sunday. But she doesn’t need to be Ginger Rogers. She’s the Prime Minister. And you have to give her credit for doggedly sticking to that role. Even if I’m not convinced she’s been doing it terribly well.

After all the house hunting and hand-wringing, you’ve finally made an accepted offer on a home. Now, if you’re like many buyers, you’ll hire a home inspector to cast a critical eye on the property. It’s a crucial step that forces buyers to think more objectively about their purchase, said Liz Martin, a home inspector in Brookline. “The issue is no longer whether the bedrooms are sunny or proximity to transportation,’’ Martin said. “Instead it becomes, ‘What shape is this house or condo in, and can I afford the repairs and the maintenance?’ ’’ But while a good inspector can give you a thorough assessment of the home’s condition, alerting you to potential safety hazards, problems big and small, and what costly repairs might be in your future, there’s a limit to what they can tell you — and even the best ones can’t see through walls. “People can have the mistaken idea that the home … [Read more...] about What home inspectors can and cannot tell you
