One Doctors Awkward Decision To Write His Name On His Scrub Cap Is Changing Safety In Hospitals Around The World

We get so used to our everyday lives, we rarely stop to question the simple things. After all, if they remained the same for so long, is it possible to improve them even more? Well… Yes. In an attempt to avoid confusion during surgical operations, Australian anesthetist Dr. Rob Hackett decided to wear a scrub cap with his name on: “Rob … Anaesthetist.”   Image credits: patientsafe3 “The #TheatreCapChallenge is an initiative from the PatientSafe Network in response to concerns about how easily avoidable mistakes and poor communication are contributing to rising adverse events for our patients,” Dr. Hackett told Bored Panda. “It has been adopted around the world with studies from the US and UK demonstrating how this simple …

Another Sinkhole Just Opened Near The White House And Everyone Is Making The Same Joke

Yet another sinkhole has opened up next to the White House, confirming that the only department unaffected by the shutdown is the department of obvious metaphors. (And that the Hellmouth has moved from Sunnydale to DC). So far during Trump’s presidency, sinkholes have opened up on the White House lawn and his famous Mar-a-Lago resort, in what even scientists are starting to suspect is a targeted attack by a vengeful god. This time, God was a little off the mark and hit just a block away from the president. – – – The Internet has responded predictably to the sinkhole, linking it to the president and/or impending apocalypse in every way they possibly can. – And joking that the damned thing keeps …

British soldier sues Army over Q fever

Pte Bass’s platoon was responsible for reconnaissance and protecting other forces. It is there that he believes he contracted Q fever, an infection caused by bacteria most commonly found in cattle, sheep, and goats. Humans typically get Q fever when they breathe in dust from faeces of infected animals. “To avoid enemy fire I was constantly having to dive into ditches on the ground where farm animals had been, there were animals all over the place,” he says.

What’s behind Netflix’s latest successes?

Image copyright Netflix Image caption You has been a huge success on Netflix You, which is based on Caroline Kepnes’ best-selling novel of the same name, was initially made for the Lifetime Network in the US, but only averaged about 611,000 viewers. Report End of Twitter post by @arielvcifala Buzzfeed’s TV editor Scott Bryan tells the BBC the combination of “Netflix’s international appeal and social media influence” helped spread You a lot further than the Lifetime Network could. “If you’d have told me about You six months ago, then I wouldn’t have known where to find it, but with Netflix’s good marketing and social media, I could,” he says.

Trump Sparks Anger With ‘Send A Brick’ To Pelosi And Schumer Campaign

The Brad Parscale and Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. each hyped the initiative and its BuildTheBorderWall.com website on Twitter Friday: “Since Chuck and Nancy keep stonewalling the President, why don’t we send the wall to them, brick by brick, until they agree to secure the border!” tweeted  Trump Jr. Its home page offers people two options to either “send Nancy a brick” or to “send Chuck a brick.” It features a photograph of a red brick superimposed with an SMS number to which people can text to donate to the cause — and the claim that enough fentanyl entered the U.S. in 2018 to “kill every American.” “President Trump came up with a brilliant idea to make sure Chuck and …

Ancient Persians Recognized At Least Three Genders

A study of graves from a 3000-year-old Persian civilization suggests the people buried there did not hold to the rigid gender binary that is only just starting to break down. Indeed, the author argues, archaeological studies have been influenced by viewing both sex and gender through a western lens. Debates about gender, and the legitimacy of people who reject the one they were assigned at birth, are a rising cultural battlefield. The Trump administration’s efforts to exclude transgender individuals from the military and ban gender changes on public records, and to erase intersex individuals entirely, are the most notable example, but similar attacks are occurring worldwide. Proponents claim a strict gender binary, attached to easily determinable sexual characteristics is historically …

Scientists Develop New, Incredibly Fast 3D Brain Imaging Technique

The human brain is often described as a meager mass of tissue that is colossal in its complexity. Seeing as neuroscientists still struggle to fathom the mind of a fruit fly, whose brain is the size of a poppy seed and has only 100,000 neurons, a human’s noggin at 1.4 kilograms (3 pounds) and over 80 billion neurons is a feat on another level. Still, progress is progress and now scientists have mapped in 3D a fruit fly’s brain in nanoscale detail in less than three days. This is compared to the years it previously took. “You can spend years and years getting an EM image of one fly brain,” said co-author Eric Betzig, a Nobel laureate and professor at UC …

China Has Just Sprouted A Plant On The Far Side Of The Moon

Onboard China’s Chang’e-4 lander, on the dusty gray lunar surface, a tiny green sprout has sprung into life in one giant leap for plant-kind. China has made history, yet again, by successfully germinating a cotton seed on the far side of the Moon, marking the first time any biological matter has been grown on the lunar surface, Chinese state media reports.  Chang’e-4, named after the Chinese Moon goddess, pulled off the first-ever soft landing on the far side of the Moon on January 2, 2019. It’s already beamed back some incredible images of this relatively unexplored landscape, but now China is steaming ahead with the first-ever biosphere experiment on the Moon. The cotton plant seed germinated inside an air-tight canister onboard the …
