The power of touch: I didn't hold my daughter until she was three days old | Salamishah Tillet

I was afraid my inability to breastfeed her or engage in skin-to-skin contact would harm her, but I was also burdened by another historyWelcome to the Guardian’s Power of Touch seriesI had to wait three days after my daughter Seneca was born to hold her. She arrived punctually just before sunrise on her due date, a fact I have interpreted as her over-accommodating me, because it enabled me to drive to UPS and mail off my tenure dossier on time.Nine hours later, as my partner, Solomon, my sister,...

More Drone Deliveries Being Tested in America

Long-time Slashdot reader necro81 writes: For several years, Zipline has deployed autonomous, fixed-wing airplane drones for medical supply deliveries in Rwanda.
