View 250,000 British Paintings & Sculptures Free Online

A little over four years ago, discriminatory and arbitrarily confusing travel bans descended on the U.S., tearing refugee families apart and leaving thousands in diplomatic limbo. This seemed nightmarish enough at the time. But it took a viral pandemic to bring travel bans and restrictions down on the entire world, more or less, with countries appearing on bulletins that vaguely look like lists of enemies on governing bodies’ websites, including the CDC's. Likewise, almost all 27 countries that...

Was Washington Ballet’s Virtual Fundraising Gala A Bad Idea After All?

Organizers of the June 18 event, for which the company’s dancers gathered to tape performances which were streamed for attendees, say they followed all CDC and local health guidelines. Nevertheless, artistic director Julie Kent and one of the performers contracted COVID. “These human costs are devastating,” writes Sarah Kaufman, “and there is another victim here: trust. … Did the ballet make the right choices to fundraise in this way, and how much can we trust it on health matters in the future...

The CDC Uses A Chinese Textile To Illustrate A Cover Story On Virus Transmission

Or rather, misuses the textile, a late-18th-century military rank badge. “Byron Breedlove and Isaac Chun-Hai Fung, authors of the cover feature ‘Auspicious Symbols of Rank and Status,’ try to give an art historical analysis of this textile their best shot. However, their attempt at intertwining art and science takes a disastrous, even comical turn in the sixth paragraph, in which they state that ‘The birds and animals featured on the various rank badges (excepting, among others, dragons, unico...

Attendance At Public Events May Not Recover Post-Pandemic: Study

Worried About COVID-19? Here's a Diagram Showing Areas Most Often Missed During Hand Washing

When I was younger I drove an ambulance, and even though we wore latex gloves at all times, during our training a senior EMT went over handwashing protocol: Thoroughly soap and rinse every square inch of your fingers, palms, back-of-hands and wrists. We were also instructed to hum the entire song "Yankee Doodle Dandy" in our heads as we did it; if we finished washing before we got to the end of the song, we didn't do a thorough job.Now that the Coronavirus/COVID-19 is spreading around the globe,...

Invasive longhorned tick could spread disease across the U.S.

The Asian longhorned tick used to be a species only found in China, Japan, Korea and southeastern Russia, plus parts of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. But last year, an established population was found in New Jersey, and since then, the ticks have been found in eight other states. Because the tick is parthenogenetic — which means the females can reproduce without needing male DNA — it is possible that it will soon occupy large parts of the Pacific Northwest and the eastern U.S....

Safety Hoist: A Ladder That Carries the Heavy Stuff for You

Essentially a sturdy ladder and series of extensions rigged up with a motorized lift, it can safely transport goods up to dizzying heights with...

Antibiotic-resistant "nightmare" bacteria are spreading across the US

A new breed of “nightmare” bacteria resists pretty much all of our antibiotics – and it’s rapidly spreading across the US. The bacteria – called carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) – is different from your run-of-the-mill antibiotic-resistant bacteria because it is incredibly deadly, with 50 percent of infected patients dying. Not only that, but it is spreading like “wildfire” with over 200 cases identified in 27 states. Researchers at the CDC said that last year they tested 5,700 sa...

Lyme disease shot could offer 100% protection

Lyme disease is a growing issue in the United States. Since the 1990’s, the number of cases has more than doubled. Scientists at a laboratory associated with the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Medical School are working on an answer, and have made progress on a shot that could protect people against contracting the disease. Lyme disease, which is contracted after infected ticks transmit a bacterium to humans, is on the rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC...

Is Zika the real cause of microcephaly in Brazil? New study raises questions

The massive microcephaly outbreak that rocked Brazil last year has confounded researchers who are trying to understand the cause. Although most scientists think there is a connection between the Zika virus and the huge spike in microcephaly cases in Brazil, a new study of Zika-infected mothers in Colombia casts doubt on this theory, because out of 12,000 confirmed cases of zika-infected pregnant women, none had babies born with microcephaly. Many take for granted that the Zika virus is the ...
