You would like some soup.

Yes.
We should start here.
[For as the ancients recognised:
"In-between MIND and BODY lies the soup."]

As we can (and do) debate exactly 'where' and 'when' action begins.

Do you know you're hungry?
Do you know you want soup?
Do you know where it is?
Did you buy some three days ago?

If you don't, do know how to make this happen?
Can you ask someone for help if needed?
Do you know where the kitchen is?
Is your kitchen, one that you can walk in
(also known as your's),
 or is it one of those "off-limits" designs
(see below right)?

Like many of the things we take for granted
Soup IS Knowledge


There you are! In the kitchen.
You are aok opening the can, carton.
Home-made excellent!
[And the bread! Wo!]

Can you reach for and open things?
Grip, twisting it is quite an operation -
fingers, hands, wrists, balance.

We don't want you to spin around do we?
Most have a opener of some sort,
maybe a drawer or a rack full.
Perhaps something to sit - perch on would help?

Can you read the instructions?
tiny print and poor eyesight

What about Imperial and Metric?

Take care with that can?
Safety first, cooker, gas...?
Are you up to date with Tetanus jabs?

Where's the plasters?
1st Aid Kit.
"Is there a Dr in the house! :-/ "
Quick - grab the ice!


How does the soup taste?
Taste?
Yes it is  subjective ... but...

Are you on a big hike?
If so, it's the best soup you ever had?

Somehow it tastes better in company.
 Like its constituents soup is best crowdsourced.

Here is the place
and down the agees
 that the crowd (family-friends)
together with home-made
are ingredients made for each other.

Ah! They're here.
My Carer = company + soup ...

Thanks Stan your soup was delicious!



Whether a kitchen,
outside oven,
or camp fire this place is a powerful place.

Powerful too are foodbanks and soup kitchens.

Oh dear.
Yet another new carer = lost time
'dear' indeed.

Stop!
Are those vegetables ok?
What's the BBE - Expiry?

Is there an Occupational Therapist in the team? What about a Physio, or do we have to refer on?

Who controls the labelling
on this product anyway?

From the Couch to the Courtroom BBC Radio 4: 17 April 2017
Helena Kennedy QC asks if our legal system is becoming too influenced by the culture of psychotherapy.

The potential of Hodges' model as a generic conceptual framework has always been demonstrable through the distinction between the individual and the State. In this Radio 4 programme it is well worth also considering the diametric (potential) opposition of the person and their mental health (and therefore their physical state) as in applying the law in all aspects of healthcare and human welfare.

There are two references in the bibliography (sidebar) on the role of Hodges' model in forensic contexts.

Survey: Blockchain Technology - the Records Manager's friend?

There are of course a great many ongoing surveys at any given time, but why am I featuring one on W2tQ c/o the discussion list at JISCMail's RECORDS-MANAGEMENT-UK?

In terms of the posts, reports, papers, tweets and other media blockchain technology is a phenomena that is bound to stay and spread beyond the bitcoin cryptocurrrency. Consider:

Dubai could become first Blockchain powered city. (2017, March 31). Financial Services Monitor Worldwide, p. Financial Services Monitor Worldwide, Mar 31, 2017. 
Arabianbusinesscom Staff. (2017, January 03). Du, NMC Healthcare to transform Electronic Health Records with Blockchain. ITP.net, p. ITP.net, Jan 3, 2017. 
Joseph Conn. (2016). Could blockchain help cure health IT's security woes? Modern Healthcare, 46(45), 0014.
Silverstein, E. (2016, July 13). Could health care benefit from blockchain technology? LifeHealthPro, p. LifeHealthPro, Jul 13, 2016.
This is clearly a topic to watch. Here is Rob Begley's survey:

Survey: Blockchain Technology - the Records Manager's friend?

Blockchain technology, and its underlying applications, is the new disruptive technology that has emerged in recent years which has excited a lot of people because of its ‘potential to transform everything’*
Hello, my name is Rob Begley, a Masters student on the Information and Records Management course at Northumbria University. I am looking for responses to an anonymous and mobile friendly 4 minute questionnaire which is hosted on the secure, and UK based, Bristol Online Surveys servers.

CLICK HERE FOR SURVEY

This survey forms part of my dissertation and the results will be used to establish whether information and records professionals in the United Kingdom and Ireland are accepting of, and using, new technologies - in particular Blockchain. Final results will not only feed into my MSc dissertation report but will also feature in a future IRMS Bulletin article.

Aimed primarily at information professionals but open to all so please join in to help us get a clearer picture – even if you don’t know about Blockchain Technology! Feel free to share this survey with colleagues.

Blockchain, essentially, is an open distributed ledger that lives on a network of synchronised computers environment that collectively capture and verify when a transaction takes place – therefore eliminating a reliance on trusted third parties. Any time something of value gets exchanged, the data surrounding that exchange are recorded, encrypted and placed into a “block” visible by anyone granted access to the network. Those blocks are then “chained” together chronologically, creating a timeline that can be traced to an initial transaction.

Blockchain has been described as a 'record keeping technology which could dramatically alter recordkeeping'** and could change how many information professionals work in the future. But is it really of any practical use and who actually uses it? This questionnaire aims to answer those questions.
