Medicine involves decisions. But for Medicare patients with conditions for which surgery is an option, whether they undergo elective surgery depends largely on where they live and the clinicians they... More > see. Research suggests that for many conditions -- especially those that can be treated with elective surgery -- the treatment a patient receives depends more on the physician's recommendations than the patient's preferences. When studying elective surgeries, the Dartmouth Atlas found remarkable variation in these "preference-sensitive" procedures for Medicare patients, even though they had similar conditions. This series, a collaborative project with the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation, looks at the variation in surgical rates in 306 hospital referral regions across the United States. Each report highlights one of nine regions and shows the variation that exists even across these smaller geographic areas.< Less

Screenplay for a major motion picture. The year is 1927. It's the Roaring Twenties. The age of flappers and bootleg gin. Lindbergh flew the Atlantic. Barnstormers and wingwalkers risked their... More > lives over Midwest prairies and fields. Talking movies were born. Girls bobbed their hair and rolled down their stockings. Boys wore raccoon coats, carried hip flasks and terrorized the roadways in galloping jalopies. But on a small, hardscrabble farmstead in Southeastern Oklahoma, the modern world was far away. A poor farm family with seven children had lost their farm and was forced to set out on a journey across the Great Plains in three tiny prairie schooners. They encountered twisters, flashfloods and blizzards, Indians, barnstormers and bank robbers, injury, accident and runaway horses. It was a remarkable journey. But by the time it ended, they were down to one wagon and had fallen 176 miles short of their destination. It took a Christmas miracle to save their lives.< Less

“…one child, who had lost her parents, screamed steadily and with increasing shrillness, as though verging towards a fit; an official kept her by him, but no one else seemed so much as... More > to remark her distress; and I am ashamed to say that I ran among the rest”. Across the plains describes Stevenson's arrival at New York as an immigrant, along with hundreds of other Europeans, and his train journey from New York to San Francisco in an immigrant train. Stevenson describes the train as having three sections: one for women and children, one for men, and one for Chinese. He notes that while the Europeans looked down on the Chinese for being dirty, in fact the Chinese carriages were the freshest and their passengers the cleanest.< Less

It was, if I remember rightly, five o'clock when we were all signalled to be present at the Ferry Depot of the railroad. An emigrant ship had arrived at New York on the Saturday night, another on the... More > Sunday morning, our own on Sunday afternoon, a fourth early on Monday; and as there is no emigrant train on Sunday a great part of the passengers from these four ships was concentrated on the train by which I was to travel. There was a babel of bewildered men, women, and children. Open carts full of bedding stood by the half-hour in the rain. The officials loaded each other with recriminations. A bearded, mildewed little man, whom I take to have been an emigrant agent, was all over the place, his mouth full of brimstone, blustering and interfering. It was plain that the whole system, if system there was, had utterly broken down under the strain of so many passengers.< Less

Preaching on the Plains: Reminiscinces By David Myers

"For some 32 years I have been absent from the northern Plains area which I call 'My Country.' I have had periods of great loneliness for it. I can fancy still the shouts and sounds of gunfire... More > of riders, exuberant horsemen, rushing through the street on Saturday nights on 'Silk Stocking Avenue' in Fairview, Montana, firing into the air. I can feel the pressure of a quick crush with my car into the huge snow drifts in the wake of blizzard seasons; the warm hospitality of the Plains people. I remember the joyful shouts of little children in Vacation Bible Schools; the young lad who joyfully received Christ, then said just before he succumbed from tubercular meningitis, 'I go to dwell in the house of the Lord forever.' And I remember the exhausting nights after full days of preaching five or six times a Lord's Day, the many miles traversed; but all, all forgotten in the joy of seeing souls saved at points in a far flung parish. However, it is all ending in gladness!" http://PreachingOnThePlains.wordpress.com< Less
