I am a 37 years old mom ,I am a mother of 3 children. I am a Dentist. I try to make every thing perfect. The life I have, the difficulties I face make me anxious.. I like to have a social life; I cannot resist my feeling of being lonely, but I don’t have good social life, & I am lonely.

Be reasonable......can you see democracy here?.

I can say that the people in this country are neglected, that what I can see through my daily life events and during work .To give you an example, today at work we did not have electricity in the village's hospital; we did not have fuel for the generator, and we received Two emergency cases, the first one was a woman with labor troubles( she is also a nurse in the same hospital) , the other one was a few months old baby with difficulty in breathing .The doctors decided to take the mother quickly to the main hospital in Mosul with the only ambulance we have, but they knew that the baby will not survive , and that what happened, we lost the baby boy.
The child who wasn't able to breathe had to wait for a long time in the very cold corridor for the electricity to be put on the ventilator; you can imagine his parents feelings at that time, I couldn't withstand the situation, I picked up the phone and called the electricity control section in the city center,I shouted ,I begged, I cried ,I made them give us electricity to save the child ,but I am still very much angry because of the bad health services and bad equipments, ……
My husband's grandma died in the hospital when she needed oxygen after bone fixation surgery, because they did not have tube for the respirator…
A doctor colleague lost her child during caesarian delivery, because of the absence of oxygen in the operation room…..
There are so many worse examples about the health state in this country … The hospitals are so dirty, and their worst state……
Can a country in such condition be described as a democratic one!!

Mama, I can't begin to imagine the conditions that you work in every single day. I wish I could bring you to Canada!! As a nurse, I know the feeling of hurting for your patients. You are in a helping profession Mama because you care for people and have mercy for them. It is people like yourself that Iraq needs to stand firm and stand strong. I pray that you will soon see some light that will give you a glimmer of hope.

Mama, That is a very bad situation. I just can't imagine being that mother with the baby, knowing if only there were electricity for the oxygen my baby needed to live. It is heart breaking. I wish there were something I could do to help.

Just out of curiosity, What were the hospitals like before this mess started? Based on what I've read on many blogs, you had electricity, but what were the other conditions like? I still can not imagine the conditions you and your family, friends, and fellow contrymen are living in. I pray that this will end soon and things will get better for Iraq. But I like many others are starting to wonder.....

That is incredibly sad, Mama. I am so sorry.

Is there no money? Or, did someone fail to purchase the right supplies? It is astonishing to be losing lives over very cheap supplies.

Why is the hospital dirty? Why not clean it? Dismiss people who fail to clean properly. Be sure to tell them that cleaning is a very important job, and that they are helping to save lives (which is all true!).

Please do not blame democracy. Democracy is just a way that you pick your government. To get better living standards, you must create true wealth.

Democracy and health?

Mama, it is tragic that conditions in the Iraqi health care system are so deplorable and dangerous. I know that even getting basic medical supplies is often difficult or impossible. I hope and pray that things improve quickly.

But it may not be appropriate to associate the problems with democracy or lack of democracy. Sure, a democratic country might have healthier citizens, partially because of economics and nutrition. But not all people living in a democracy have access to its benefits. Here are some facts about the United States that may surprise you. We, being a world leading democracy, can boast of the following:

37 million people live in poverty, or 13 percent of the population. Of children under 18, 13 million, or 18 percent, live in poverty, but in rural areas it is 35 percent, with 2.5 million children at the deepest levels of poverty. 45 million people, or 19 percent are without health insurance coverage. Twelve percent of children are without health coverage. The percentage of people with employment related health insurance is decreasing.

In the rural areas of some states, like Alabama, they do not have hospitals that can safely deliver a baby. Millions of children live in these areas. In these areas they lack basic services such as safe drinking water, adequate plumbing and sewer systems, telephone connections and transportation, which limits access to employment and children’s health care because they can’t get there and can’t pay for it. Twenty-seven countries have a better infant survival rate than the United States. Seventy countries have a better infant survival rate than Louisiana, Mississippi, and the District of Columbia, our nation’s capital. Even Cuba, a communist dictatorship, has a lower infant mortality rate than the United States.

In America, only 1 in 4 households has children. The vote is in the hands of those who don’t have children and who don’t live in poverty and won’t give up their devotion to other priorities. I have been reading Iraqi bloggers on a regular basis since Salam Pax started it all. It seems clear that Iraqis love their children, not just their own, but everyone’s, and I can’t see the Iraqi people tolerating the conditions I have described and I believe they will gather the political and economic steam to not have to tolerate what so many Americans seem willing to. I have more faith in the future of the Iraqi people than the fate 20 million American children.

Consider:
The missing element in every human 'solution' is
an accurate definition of the creature.

The way we define 'human' determines our view
of self, others, relationships, institutions, life, and
future. Important? Only the Creator who made us
in His own image is qualified to define us accurately.
Choose wisely...there are results.
Many problems in human experience are the result of
false and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes
his definitive and typifying characteristic. Recall
that his other features are but vehicles of experi-
ence intent on the development of perceptive
awareness and the following acts of decision and
choice. Note that the products of man cannot define
him for they are the fruit of the discerning choice-
making process and include the cognition of self,
the utility of experience, the development of value-
measuring systems and language, and the accultur-
ation of civilization.

The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits,
customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of
his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity, the
creative process, is a choice-making process. His
articles, constructs, and commodities, however
marvelous to behold, deserve neither awe nor idol-
atry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own
highest expression of the creative process.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and
significant act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean
fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the
forces of cause and effect to an elected level of qual-
ity and diversity. Further, it orients him toward a
natural environmental opportunity, freedom, and
bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his
singular and plural brow.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the
universe. Selah

- from The HUMAN PARADIGM

Different Car Insurance

There are different types of insurance coverage available, thus the best question to ask when applying for insurance, is which policy is available to me. In the beginning of the 19th century laws were passed stating that anyone driver a motor vehicle is by law obligated to have a measure of coverage. The drive can take out full coverage, or else �third-party� coverage, which will protect them in the event an accident occurs. The policy will keep you out of the arms of the law even if you are pulled over for a traffic violation, by protecting you from getting citations, fines, jail, or towed vehicle for no proof.

Third party will offer a measure of protection, however it will not protect you entirely if an accident occurs, and most likely will not cover you if your car is stolen. If you possess a �High-Performance� or �Classic� vehicle, then you will need supplementary coverage, outside of third-party coverage. In fact, you will need full coverage, plus the supplementary coverage to protect your vehicle. The coverage offered to these customers is to protect them extensively, since the risks are higher and the cost of repairs on such vehicles is twice more expensive than standard vehicles.

If you only take out third-party insurance on a high dollar vehicle, then you will pay the cost of repair and suffer losses in the event you are in an accident, unless the other driver is at fault. However, if that driver is at fault, still you may pay the cost that is not covered under the other drivers insurance if he too has third-party coverage. The third-party coverage will cover drivers on �public roads,� or private roads.� The policy may offer limited coverage for �legal liabilities� and �passenger indemnity.� The passenger indemnity means that if you are driving and your passenger hit�s a parked vehicle with the passenger door then you will be covered. The coverage may offer protection against fire and theft also, which will provide you a measure of coverage in the event your car is stolen or fire occurs. However, you must read the terms and agreements carefully, since some third-party coverage is minimal and will not offer this protection. On the other hand, comprehensive full coverage will defend you on nearly every possible occurrence. Comprehensive full insurance coverage �is the complete form of car insurance� that �adds accidental damage� coverage �to the 3 policies discussed.�

The comprehensive coverage can protect you, despite the level of damage, and will cover you on many �personal accidents� in the event you are injured. Third-party coverage was not planned to provide the coverage that the comprehensive policies bring. Third Party Only is a liability policy that will prevent you from charge if you cause an accident. The Policy will provide a measure of assurance that if you are in an industrial accident �the innocent party�s repair/replacement costs are insured against.

Thus, insurance coverage is different and most companies base the pricing on age, driving history, gender, type of car, and so forth. Regardless of the type of insurance you are seeking, all policies have premiums. The companies will often ask customers to provide an estimated guess as to how many miles you drive each year and this too will affect your premiums. Most companies estimate that drivers should only drive around 12,000 miles per year, but it depends on the company. Furthermore, under law you are responsible for your vehicle, therefore, if you are seeking insurance coverage and intend to allow other drivers to drive the car, make sure you get coverage for other drivers, otherwise if the driver causes an accident, by law you will pay for the damage, loss, death, and any other problem the accident caused. Thus, if you have a new car, high-performance vehicle, and other risky materials or issues that can increase your premiums, take not of each area that may be considered a high risk and point this out to the agent ahead of time. It makes sense to get several quotes if you pose a potential high risk to find the best rates on car insurance plans.

Hi there, I needed some help with my 7 year old daughter and found your blog. We welcomed our 3rd child into the world 7 weeks ago and now my darling 7 year old (the eldest) is pining for the days before her brothers (3 years old and 7 weeks). I needed advice and found your lovely post on your answers to your friends questions. We are in New Zealand and to be honest ,it humbles me to see how well you are doing with your children, what a grand mother you are.
