    When Helping Hurts
    But I am not surprised. Like most people involved in charity, their hearts are almost always in the right place -- wanting to share God's love with others. But, we are never quite certain what our role should be.

    What we do know is that relationships are far more important than handing out material goods. ...

    Finding the right mix is one of the details where the devil sets up housekeeping.

    Medical mistakes harm more than 1 in 10 patients. Many are preventable.
    Don’t be intimidated by busy doctors or other medical staff, advised Minnier.

    “There are some basic things to keep track of,” she said. For example, “make sure they are washing their hands to prevent infections and are using the right protective equipment.”

    If you’re not comfortable with what’s happening, “make them pause so you can ask questions,” Minnier said. “Checklists have become very popular. One of the important purposes of checklists is that they force people to pause and think about what is happening.”

    US Home Purchases by Chinese, Other Foreigners Plunge Below 2012 Level.
    The puzzle in the US housing market was this: Mortgage rates have dropped since November, and as expected mortgage applications to buy homes have surged, and this was a total no-brainer. But home sales, which had been expected to surge this year, given the much lower mortgage rates and the much higher mortgage applications, have woefully disappointed.

    Housing Bubble 2 Lost its Mojo in the San Francisco Bay Area: House Prices Drop 8%

    In eight of these nine counties, house prices fell in June compared to June last year. June is around the seasonal peak in terms of prices, but by Bay Area standards, it just wasn’t very peaky. The median price of house sales that closed in June dropped 8.1% compared to June last year, which put it back on the same level as June two years ago:
