8 Ways to Improve School Entrance Security

Many school and university buildings in the United States have been constructed to achieve an inviting and open campus style, with multiple buildings, multiple entrances and exits, big windows and many opportunities for privacy.

Unfortunately, these design configurations are not conducive to security and lockdown.

FORENSIC MEDICINE: Filling Out the Form

Filling-out forms is a necessary part of the practice of medicine, and failure to perform this seemingly secretarial task may lead to dire consequences. I was retained as an emergency medicine consultant in a case involving a Type-1 diabetic who preferred to keep himself in “tight control” resulting in his blood sugar rarely going very high but also resulting in his suffering recurrent episodes of hypoglycemia associated with lapses of consciousness. In California, when a patient presents to an Emergency Department (ED) after having suffered a lapse of consciousness, that event must be reported to the County Health Department via a form. That information will then be forwarded to the DMV by the Heath Department.

NEUROPSYCHOLOGY: Deception; A Prevalent, Adaptive and Profitable Phenomenon

Let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment. Few of us have made it into adulthood without engaging in, or entertaining the notion of malingering or feigning illness. My first conscious recollection of malingering began at age 8. You see, I was obsessed with my babysitter, Kitty who fit the perfect part of a flower girl in the late 1960’s. She began babysitting us at age 16. After a couple years she had taken a job as an office assistant with my family’s medical doctor.

Experts who present on such things wax prophetic of the inevitable doom awaiting the wayward lawyer transgressing whatever the expert is expounding at the moment. There is one that is never addressed; maybe it is too camouflaged or too threatening of esoteric revelations. I am inviting you in where the wise seem too fearful to tread.

NEUROPSYCHOLOGY: Three Myths of Neuropsychology
