When I attended CES I had the privilege to meet up with the Honeywell folks. They make some amazing products, one of which I was ask to review: The Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control. I’ve had the amazing little thermostat for a few weeks and have had a great time with it so far.
Movies like Demolition Man, The Fifth Element and iRobot just make my nerdy little heart skip a beat. What’s so GREAT about these Action Flicks? Well, first of all, they are AMAZING masterpieces of cinematography. Second they feature Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, and Will Smith. And third, they have self-driving cars.

At CES I got to see so many cool technologies. They feature innovative and exciting products to simplify your life. One of my favorites is was this USB wall outlet.

I am an expert on lateral violence and the methods to be used to combat it because I experience it first hand, have spent countless hours researching the phenomena, and know the legal implications a company can face if they allow it to happen.

Becoming a nurse informaticist would allow me to be passionate about the things I love: technology and healthcare. I would be able to make a real difference in an organization by inspiring those around me to get excited about innovation and improvements. I just may be able to convince a few more nurses and doctors to look at the bigger picture when technology is involved. Don’t think about the here and now and the minor frustrations you are inconvenienced by, but think about the long term benefits that you and your patients will experience.
