Ralph Klein has gone and it is time to retire Ralph's World. Thanks to all of you who have supported this venture by contributing material and through your comments. It has been fun.

Should we get another blog underway? Let me know your thoughts by e-mailing me at johnnyslow@gmail.com.

"Unleasing Innovation in Health Systems" Contest 

The image seen on the left is the logo being used by the Alberta Government to promote their Symposium on Health Conference which is coming up May 3rd to 5th in Calgary. The motto of the conference is "Unleashing Innovation in Health Systems".

The management and staff here at Ralph's World, admittedly not the brightest bulbs in the box, were nevertheless puzzled about how the somewhat poofy picture related to the macho motto. To us power words like "unleashing" just don't seem to go with a bunch of guys holding hands in a circle and standing in puddles of something.

Phone calls for an explanation made to the Health Minister's Office and the Public Affairs Bureau were not well received so we decided to go to you, the citizens, for your input. Here's what you need to do to participate.

Simply come up with your own unique explanation of how the logo relates to the motto. You might tell us who you think the people in the picture are. Are they new private hospital owners or simply happy healthy Albertans enjoying the fruits of Ralph's "Third Way"? You might think up a new motto or for that matter a new logo. Imagination is the key key here; "Outside the box" thinking as Premier Klein likes to call it. Once you have your ideas together e-mail them to us at johnnyslow@gmail.com. We'll publish the best here at Ralph's World. Make sure to tell us if you want your name used if we publish your entry.

For those of you who, like us, did not get a government invitation to "Unleashing Innovation in Health Systems, don't forget about the "Weighing the Evidence" conference this weekend in Calgary. You don't need to on the government A list to attend. Check out the details at www.weighingtheevidence.ca.

See you there.
