A physician suicide: covered up with a tarp and silence

Another young doctor recently jumped to her death in New York City. Hello Pamela, I am not a doctor, but a mother of 3 and a wife of a resident physician. Two doctors died from jumping off our 33-story building in 2 years, and no one seems to care. Since I’m not a doctor, there’s only so much I can understand about what my husband is going through. This is what I saw when I came home tonight – a dead doctor lying under that tarp – lifeless in the freezing cold. 

Another doctor dead from Mt. Sinai in NY. I think NY is a horrible place to work. Conditions are deplorable for doctors, and you should investigate. Don’t let another doctor’s life go unspoken for. 

A few hours before this flurry of emails, I was on the phone with a doctor who reported that her own family physician shot herself in her clinic. Now to answer the questions posed to me by the doctor’s wife, the physician, and the hospital executive. More than one million Americans lose their doctors to suicide each year. Now is the time for fearless leadership, for the heroes among us to reveal themselves and take a stand for our doctors – for the men and women who walk into our hospitals everyday to so selflessly serve others.

Vulture Capitalism, by John Stossel

Shifting resources does mean some people lose their jobs. Intuition tells us that it would be better if no one ever lost a job and that capitalists who close businesses are evil. America is richer today because those workers lost their jobs, because money once paid them is put to better use. Most of those workers found new jobs where their skills better served consumers. We take pictures as they leave their jobs on that last day when the factory closes. 

We don’t see the better things that are done with capital that once went into the factory. We had no clue that those companies were about to produce cool new things, thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in value. If government does not bestow privileges, those that don’t create wealth go out of business, and those that fund good ideas grow. Handouts to Solyndra and special deals for Goldman Sachs and GM are not capitalism. Many people hate banks, private-equity firms and mortgage brokers. 

The real evil bankers are the government cronies, like those at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In a real free market – no government privileges or barriers to competition – capitalism is great.

LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner on management

Justin Sullivan/Getty Since becoming CEO in 2009, Jeff Weiner has led LinkedIn to become a network of 364 million registered users with offices in 30 countries and a market cap of $26 billion. Weiner’s leadership style has earned him the trust of founder and chairman Reid Hoffman, his team, and LinkedIn investors. He used the example of a manager sitting down with an employee who’s frazzled. Before getting to this point, Weiner said, it’s necessary to take a moment to try to understand where the employee is coming from. It could be driven by something happening in their personal life or a misunderstanding of what’s required of them. 

That’s why it’s important to provide room for external factors that may be influencing them, and then have a discussion about the root of the problem.
