OK So i'm a British student in my second year of Biomedical Science, a course I thought would enable to me to work straight after university. However, with the recession, the NHS has been hit hard and are no longer training new Biomedical Scientists due to the cost.

I heard recently that overseas in the America's you guys are short on biomedical scientists. If your in the healthcare business, is this true? and roughly how much is starting wages? Thinking about travelling over for a few years to gain experience and cash so I can go back to university and study Medicine or at least begin to start my own life.

Thanks!

It seems like there's a shortage of grammar teachers in Britain, perhaps I should mosey on down and teach you boys and girls a thing or two. First and foremost the correct way to spell words like "color" and "flavor" without that superfluous "u" that you throw around like it grows on trees.

You know in Britain that's how those words are spelled right? Same with Armor being Armour.

As I remember you guys talk English? A language that came from England funnily enough. American's didn't sprout out of the ground, they came from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Italy primarily. You guy changed the language. Our spellings are original. So don't correct me

Anyway, answers please?

Do they also contract "you are" into "your" in Britain?

Yes, language evolves and improves over time, just like technology. I doubt you're still using a cathode ray television, so there's no reason for you to cling to your retarded spellings of words.

Could you make a huge deal about anything more pointless?

Plus I thought that level of closed minded asshatery was limited to reddit.

It's not retarded, just correct and 'You are' is abbreviated into 'You're', 'Your' indicates something that belongs to someone.

Anyways, no smart-asses please, just some answers?

I'm sorry, I didn't realize that the entire academic school of linguistics was pointless. Go fuck yourself you condescending twat.

In Canada doctors and nurses can get jobs very easily. Usually people with non-professional degrees have harder times finding jobs. I have no idea how much people make.

Stop arguing about grammar.

People might take you more seriously at your reading/writing skills if you could read well enough to tell that this post had absolutely nothing to do with grammar.

Let's face it, you guys are of a huge mix, but speak the English language primarily. I came here for some information and I'm getting a smart-ass elementary school girl correcting a guy with a B in A-Level English.

Thanks issac-bandits!

Back on track:

Healthcare is not a popular topic in America, as in, everyone hates it here for some reason, so it might not linger around much longer, that's all I can really tell you. Maybe someone else who actually knows what a biomedical whatsit can answer your question in more depth.

I can only read the words that are written down/typed out. If it is written down with improper grammar the entire meaning of the sentence is changed which can change the perception of the entire thread. Not to mention it makes the writer look like a buffoon.

So what you're telling me is if someone doesn't have 100% perfect grammar.... you get the whole perception of what they're saying ****ed up, even if it's something as simple as "Your" or spelling words how they are originally spelled in the country that the language is named after?

**** dude, your reading is even worse than I thought.
#29
Personally, I have no idea.

I think I've got some friends in Canada studying that stuff. I don't know if it helps, but a friend of mine said Canada was the world leader for Biotechnology.

Also, I'd ask the Australians about the Australian situation with healthcare as well.

I don't know when, our system is admittedly quite arbitrary (5,280 feet per mile, 12 inches per foot, etc.). The metric system is much cleaner in that aspect and in academic circles we already adhere to it because it's important to have that universal standard system of measurement.

Also your passive aggressiveness rivals that of a woman.

Honestly, I'm not sure how many people can really answer your question to its fullest extent. I know in America if you're a doctor it's really hard because there's no room for error at all. I forget what it is specifically.

I think its a mix of it's really hard to be certified, and if you make a slight error it really ****s you up. I'd look into this more though because I might be wrong, or over-exaggerating.

Yeah, that's what I'm saying. Context is very important, and changing the meaning of one sentence can alter how one thinks about the rest of the post/article/whatever as a whole.

If you were more knowledgeable you'd know that there have been a myriad of studies showing that changing single words can drastically alter ones perception. For example, in a poll in a popular magazine the support for Hillary Clinton dropped drastically when they added "Rodham" into her name and reran the poll asking whether or not you support her.

Reminds me of how this kid I secretly hated ****ed up his response to someone trolling him he typed "You can't come in here and say that" to "U **** cum in her..."

But seriously though if misunderstood the original post I'm not really sure what to say.

It should also be noted that about 90% of America hates the new healthcare system, and the Supreme Court is ruling on its legality, so don't count too much on our healthcare system being around.
