Crack Dip

Crack Dip | Interesting hhhmmmm |

To me, the name implies that it's addicting. That you will have no self control around it. That you will eat too much and you won't care. Because it's that good. It’s creamy dip goodness. With bacon. Everything is always so much better with bacon, Crack dip is the stuff dreams are made of. You have to give it 24 hours in the fridge, but OH is it worth it!.

Ingredients: *16 ounces sour cream, regular or light *1 package hidden valley ranch dip mix *2 slices bacon, cooked and finely chopped *1 cup shredded cheddar cheese *1 scallion, sliced.

Fresh Egg Pasta: a step by step recipe

Fresh Egg Pasta: a step by step recipe | Interesting hhhmmmm |

Making pasta is probably one of the most iconic scenes of the Italian culinary tradition. Several decades ago, Italian women used to regularly make pasta from scratch, as did my great aunt and grandmother. All they needed were eggs, flour, a rolling pin…and strong arms. [...]


- 100 grams of Semolina - 100 grams of White wheat all-purpose flour - 2 Egg, large - 1 pinch of Table salt

There’s nothing wrong with store-bought pasta, but there is something special in working to prepare a disk of dough, rolling it, and cut your personal size of own fresh pasta. It is so good, that you make a jump forward in understanding the Italian culture. And it’s not difficult at all to make.

“ More than 1.6 million kg of antibiotics are used in the production of livestock that Canadians consume every year. What are the effects of those antibiotics on the human body?”

Cathryn Wellner's curator insight, June 9, 2015 10:16 PM

This is a significant issue. Widespread antibiotic use is not necessary for cattle kept in more normal environments. Put a lot of them together in a small space, and the issue is similar to what children in schools experience. so this use of antibiotics is brought on by factory farming...and that means we need to re-think our animal farming practices.

Work out smarter, not longer

Work out smarter, not longer | Interesting hhhmmmm |
“ Tweak your workout a bit to rekindle the challenge and get your body responding and changing.” The most common complaint that I hear from prospective clients is this: "I work out three times a week, but my body never changes." When I ask them what they do in the gym, I almost always know what I'm going to hear. They generally do two or three circuits of machine-based strength training and then 30 minutes on a treadmill or elliptical machine. And they've been doing this same workout three times a week... since the Dawn of Man.

What is the Healthy Balanced Diet Plan for Diabetes?

What is the Healthy Balanced Diet Plan for Diabetes? | Interesting hhhmmmm |

If you have been tested for higher levels of blood sugar, it’s obvious that you are worried! However, for a change, diabetes is not the end of life.

While this lifestyle condition is definitely rising, yet in most cases, diabetes is preventable with balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Taking proper measures to prevent the condition, and control, does not mean that you have to deprive yourself of everything.

“ The positive ions from the salt tie with negative ions of the molecule of water and vice versa. The result is a new structure which is wonderfully absorbed by the body. So the water is not clear anymore and the salt is not just salt.”

What Marketing Can Do For Hospitals

What Marketing Can Do For Hospitals | Interesting hhhmmmm |
Remember when you first consulted Expedia EXPE +0.24% or TripAdvisor TRIP -0.11% to read reviews on hotels? It probably drastically changed the way you shopped for a place to stay. Now hospitals are facing the same world of transparency and competition, and they would do well to consult the marketing playbook hotels and other service businesses use to enhance their customers’ experience.Marketing theory is driving a shift from provider empowerment to customer empowerment. In the past customers did not have the expertise, or access to information, to judge service professionals. What a lawyer, teacher, or doctor said was taken at face value. Now the efficacy of that information is checked online and experiences are shared with other customers. Why did that law firm get a 3-star rating? What was the reason underlying the doctor’s lack of empathy?

Health care’s version of Expedia is the Press Ganey patient experience assessment. Hospitals are taking the survey seriously because their reimbursements from Medicare and Medicaid are now, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, based in part on its results. Hospitals are not just being paid for the services they provide, but also for their patients’ level of satisfaction.How can hospitals be sure they are providing a good patient experience? Through the RATER model for customer satisfaction, a marketing framework used in all kinds of service contexts, from hospitality to customer support in technology firms. During the Strategic Marketing course I teach in Dartmouth’s Master of Health Care Delivery Science, an advanced degree program for health care administrators and practitioners, I introduce participants to RATER, and it helps them see what “patient experience” really means.RATER stands for Reliability, Assurance, Tangibles, Empathy, and Responsiveness. Here’s how these metrics fit in to the health care context:ReliabilityLike any other service, health care is supremely human-oriented. That’s a good thing—I can’t imagine a robot giving me a physical examination—but humans are, well, human. They are moody, inconsistent and can get tired. But patients want their health care provider to be reliable. And that necessitates specific and continuous employee training on how to provide reliable care and attention to detail, even at the end of a long day.AssuranceIn health care, probably more than any other area, people want to feel confident that they’re getting the right service. Doctors can give assurance by talking openly with their patients. Don’t assume anything; provide the big picture issue and discuss specifics. Most important, ask questions and encourage a back-and-forth exchange with the patient. Hospitals can hire health coaches to be available as concerns arise.TangiblesFor most people, health is a mysterious phenomenon. The mechanics and pathologies of our bodies are often inscrutable. So how are we supposed to know we received good health care? Patients would benefit from something tangible after their treatment, like instructions for home care, tips to stay healthy, or glow-caps on prescription bottles to remind you to take your medicine.Empathy When doctors have empathy, it helps them communicate recommendations in a way that’s sensitive to the patient’s values and aspirations. Patients feel heard, and they have an individual justification for their course of treatment.ResponsivenessHow long should you wait to see a doctor? When can you expect the results of your mammogram? These are questions of responsiveness, and they are based in large part on patient expectations. The health care system has no metrics or standards for this, but patients have an innate sense of what’s right. The key for hospitals is to not overpromise while keeping patients informed of the timing of their care.I recommend using the RATER scale to see where businesses stand with customers on each of the five dimensions. Then share the findings with service providers and brainstorm ways to improve the score.As businesses implement the RATER framework, they will likely discover they can’t satisfy all their current customers. Hospitals, for example, will need to pick and choose which services to offer, and decide to refer patients to other hospitals that are better at, say, pediatric neurology. In other words, they should stick with what they do best.
