We are in the process of repeating the errors we’ve made over and over

The highway day of new cases in over a month. But the president is not talking about that. With 200,000 lives lost, it would be great to say the worst is behind us. All I can say is the worst is still in charge.

A new study shows 9% of Americans have been infected with Covid-19. Despite the fact the Rand Paul believes otherwise, we are nowhere close to herd immunity. Rand reminds me of the famous expression: “Never listen to a libertarian eye doctor for advice on a pandemic.” …

An in-depth look at mastering your sleep.

One of those days again: Your alarm goes off, you open your eyes, and all you want is snuggling back into your sheets and sleep a few more minutes.

But duty calls, so you get up, wash your face, and grab your first cup of coffee to compensate for the lack of recovery from the night. What follows are hours of operating in automatic mode just to get through the morning before you actually feel awake.

While we all know how this daunting scenario feels, a lack of sleep doesn’t only come with short-term sacrifices. …


Not enough alcoholics are educated about this

Myfather died of alcoholic liver cirrhosis four years ago. It came as a surprise to all of us, even though it was clear he had a severe drinking problem for decades. It was especially surprising to me, as a former nurse and a recovering alcoholic. You would think I’d know more about liver problems and alcohol use than the average person. But the truth is, in the months before his death, I had no idea my father’s liver was struggling at all. …


Scientists fear an exhausted nation will let down its guard just as cooler weather raises risk of a twindemic

“Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are. We. There. Yet?” That’s how Andrea Taylor, PhD, describes her own growing exhaustion with the Covid-19 trip we’re all on right now, the frustrating and inconvenient detour in the journey through the longest year ever.

While the growing and horrific U.S. coronavirus death toll exceeds 200,000, Covid-19 fatigue is spreading even among people least affected by the pandemic, according to more than a half-dozen experts interviewed for this article.

The common sentiment: “Boy, do I really need some contact with people, and some normalcy,” says Taylor, a clinical psychologist and assistant…


Understanding infants’ peculiar response to the virus may be a key to finding new treatments

Babies make up a tiny percentage of all diagnosed cases of Covid-19. In the United States, where 1.2% of the population are children under one year of age, they account for only 0.27% of the positive tests, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report. It’s not clear if babies are getting infected at a lower rate compared with other age groups or if they are just not being tested as much. But what is evident is that the ones who are diagnosed have, in general, significantly milder illness compared with adults.

The reason behind babies’ apparent…


Do vitamin D, melatonin, zinc, and vitamin C protect against Covid-19?

Dozens of studies are underway to determine whether supplements of common nutrients and vitamins could help ward off infections of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes Covid-19, or even treat the disease by reducing the dangerous inflammation it causes in the lungs and other organs. A few have proven promising. But the research is not yet conclusive on any supplements, and it’s quite inconclusive for others. Meanwhile, scientists caution that too much of any nutrient can have negative side effects.

It’s not her fault, but rather a culture of education that doesn’t prioritize the mental health of teachers

Brené Brown in 2012 — From BBeargTeam on Wikipedia Commons

A lot of teachers I know don’t eat lunch during the day. There’s just not enough time, too much to do, and too many unrealistic expectations placed on us sometimes.

I have to eat lunch every day and set that boundary or I won’t be able to function later in the day, but I can completely understand why they don’t.

In our school district, we’ve placed a heavy emphasis on trauma-informed instruction and social-emotional learning, which is defined by Aperture Education as the following:

Understand this function of the gut to beat the bloat

Gut by Giulia Enders is one of the most interesting books that I have read this year. As a long-time IBS sufferer, I am obsessed with gut health and finding new ways to optimize my own digestive system. In the book, the author provides the lowdown on the inner working of the gut and deciphers information for ordinary people that is often reserved for scientific journals. The author refers to the gut as, “our body’s most underrated organ”, and with good reason; there are many secrets to unearth including a lesser-known function of the gut that helps control bloating.
