Where Writers Write: Shawn Rubenfeld

    Welcome to another installment of TNBBC's Where Writers Write! Where Writers Write is a series in which authors showcase their writing spaces using short form essay, photos, and/or video. As a lover of books and all of the hard work that goes into creating them, I thought it would be fun to see where the authors roll up their sleeves and make the magic happen.  This is Shawun Rubenfeld.  Shawn has had short fiction appear in journals such as Permafrost, Columbia...

Wildfire Smoke Is Loaded With Microbes. Is That Dangerous?

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Wired: If you're unfortunate enough to breathe wildfire smoke, you're getting a lungful of charred plant material, noxious gases, and -- if the fire tore through human structures -- incinerated synthetic materials. All across the board, it's bad stuff, proven to be a severe detriment to human health, particularly for those with respiratory conditions like asthma. And not to pile on the worries, but that haze also turns out to be loaded with microbes like ...

Higher hypothetical disease risk linked with greater willingness to vaccinate

A survey of US adults showed that as local case counts of a hypothetical disease increased -- indicating increased risk of infection -- the proportion of people willing to receive a vaccine for the disease also increased.

Tucker Carlson Calls Climate Change ‘Systemic Racism in the Sky’

In a segment on the raging West Coast wildfires, Fox News host Tucker Carlson tried to make the baffling argument that Democratic leaders’ warnings about climate change are “like systemic racism in the sky.” He extended the bizarre metaphor, lamenting that there was supposedly no explanation for how climate change causes more wildfires (there is!) and mocking Democrats for not explaining science to him: “You can’t see it, but rest assured, it’s everywhere, and it’s deadly. Like systemic racism, ...

Antibiotic exposure can 'prime' single-resistant bacteria to become multidrug-resistant

Researchers at the University of Washington and the University of Idaho report that, for a bacterial pathogen already resistant to an antibiotic, prolonged exposure to that antibiotic not only boosted its ability to retain its resistance gene, but also made the pathogen more readily pick up and maintain resistance to a second antibiotic and become a dangerous, multidrug-resistant strain.

Tuesday Could Be Sanders’ Last, Best Chance To Stop Biden

Ever since former Vice President Joe Biden’s fast and decisive campaign resurrection, the momentum has been on his side.  He dominated in the South on Super Tuesday and stole victories in states like Maine and Massachusetts that once were trending towards Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). He even staunched the bleeding in California, finishing well above the viability watermark and mitigating the damage Sanders was formerly poised to inflict there.  The March 10 primaries could be Sanders’ las...
