If you 're going for a job, of course you should do a little bit of research about the company you're hoping will hire you. If not for possible interviews, then do it for yourself. Many organisations will ask about their values and which ones resonate with you etc. If you don't know who you're applying for a job with, why do you expect they would want to employ you?
@mamamia-user-482898552 me too.
As a nurse I've been doing this for years. Buying them online at medical supply stores for super cheap things like DuoDerm which are usually for nasty wounds. You can buy it in one big piece then just cut off what you need and save the rest.
Why is swimwear hideously expensive (except Kmart)??
@laura__palmer I've definitely made friends at industry conferences. It's a whole bunch of people with shared interests and often attending alone. Great situation to strike up a conversation by the mediocre coffee station and mini quiche platters.
Ok, an a nurse I can say I haven't seen/known of men who don't wipe their butts, but there are a whole lotta men who don't wash their penis. Like a staggering amount. The many times when I've had to get up close and personal to insert a catheter have brought many different horrors...
They all look really different but equally as beautiful with and without makeup.
I've been using Too Faced eyeshadows for a while now, and just threw out my peach palette a few days ago because it was expired and TBH had been for a while, but the colours were gorgeous and the colour pay-off was amazing. One swipe and the colour was full on. I'm not working at the moment but Safeway has 50% all makeup so I got a Revlon palette hoping for the best, but you need to use 3 times as much to get the same effect. Looking forward to working again so I can go back to the Too Faced stuff. I also found Benefit's foundation really matched my skin tone, didn't wear off and felt really nice. But now I'm onto the Maybelline FitMe which is fine, and half my face is hidden under a mask anyway.
I also had a dumb boy that I had a massive crush on back in the day tease me about my arm hair. Back in 2000. I was so self-conscious. I tried bleaching, shaving, waxing. Now I do a mix of at-home laser and trimming with the trimmer end of my razor and that works fine for me.
@ski I agree about the plastic junk and was disappointed the Ooshies had come back but our store has a recycling bin for them and their wrappers. Apparently "Ooshies are shredded, cleaned and melted into plastic pellets. These pellets go on to help to make new recycled products such as garden beds, decks, fences and benches".
Interesting use of an old fashioned cloth nappy pin on those pants.
The lighting and makeup on Ashley Graham though...
Are we calling these tights? Not leggings? I was hoping for an article on actual tights, but I have found my favourite tights yet by Snag. 100% recommend.
It'd be great to see a dermatologist but the cost can be prohibitively expensive, especially if ongoing appointments and treatments are needed.
It's not even discussing health properly, it's discussing the meaningless word 'wellness;. Pete has opinions (a lot, obviously) but his opinions are not relevant in this context. Science matters, health literacy matters. As a fat registered nurse of too many years to count, this clown having such a big platform and so many followers (or as they'd say "sheeple") is horribly disappointing but more than that it's dangerous. None of us actual registered, educated and qualified health professionals are putting our lives at risk to be met with conspiracy theories. If you don't believe in or be treated for COVID19 if you get it, then don't. Treat yourself with sunshine and bare feet, maybe some bone broth or homeopathics. If you want to believe in 'big pharma' and 5G and all the other utter nonsense, that's up to you. But stay in your lane, and leave the public health stuff to the professionals.
"You are a young man, you have some difficulties. You and I both know that," the judge said, according to The Age. "So you've got to face up to the difficulties, and I'm going to monitor how you do it."
I'll be heading into this type of work (different setting, same job) soon as a 'break' from my regular area. I haven't donned full PPE for at least 5 years and I still remember what it felt like (the heat, the sweat, the temptation to scratch that facial itch). Even then, it didn't include a visor and it was only a surgical mask. It's scary, but it's absolutely critical that we have competent and willing people doing these jobs. A hearty distanced pat on the back for all of you, and I wish we could all get a bit of danger pay for this.
I had a baby this year, and I have a newborn nephew. We've seen each other once since he was born. I haven't been able to go to a new parents group, or a playgroup, or even maternal and child health appointments. My parents can't visit their baby grandchild. My older child can't see her friends or family. I now have zero physical supports apart from my partner. I fear for all the women and families having babies this year, especially first time parents.
I see a curly hair specialist in Melbourne (https://www.delilahhairstudio.com/) and they are bloody amazing. I could never find a hairdresser who knew how to cut my hair, and so I hated in for the first 34 years of my life. But these guys always dry cut to make sure your curl pattern is followed. Since seeing them, all I use is a detangling spray (O&M Know Knott). That's all I need. They also do the best curly fringes and afros. Highly, highly recommend.
This is yet another american article. A Bachelor of Nursing in Australia costs around $7350 for most people (CSPs). I don't think the grad programs over there provide as much support as ours do. I've been nursing for 13 years, and I too was a little naive at the start. I have been assaulted, abused, threatened and scared by patients and clients over the year, and yes sometimes it hasn't been managed well by the hospital. Everyone who works with patients will experience these types of behaviours. They're not acceptable but you are seeing people (and their families) at generally the worst times of their lives, or when they aren't capable of managing their behaviour due to an illness, drugs, alcohol or mental illness. Incidents need to be reported to management via riskman or similar but you also need to report them to your union (ANMF in Australia). Make use of clinical supervision or peer support or whatever your workplace has in place. If you get nowhere and no help, find a different job. That's one of the good things about nursing, there is always another job. And abuse and assault doesn't just happen in acute wards or ED or psych. My worst assault happened in a geriatric ward. It wasn't dealt with well by management, so I left. I have a job in nursing now that I love. There's a nursing role for all of us, you just need to find the one that fits you the best.
