She is a complete medical facility that even includes a dental clinic, four x-ray machines and a CT scanner. A pair of oxygen-producing plants, an optometry lab and coolers to hold 5,000 units of blood are all part of her tool box. Comfort is a hospital that can sustain up to 2,000 people onboard, crew combined with patients, and supply much-needed water to both as she maintained a fresh water plant making up to 300,000 gallons of water a day. Other onboard services include a satellite lab and a central area for sterile causality receiving. A medical supply depot, along with a well-stocked pharmacy, are all included. Due to the nature of her work she has a large laundry operations and her own morgue. … [Read more...] about Everything you need to know about the USNS Comfort, the giant hospital ship in NYC

McNutt also regrets the sexism scandal that rocked Science beginning in July 2014, when the journal published a cover photo featuring a pair of transgender women in platform shoes and skin-tight dresses with their heads cropped out of the shot. Though McNutt publicly vowed to “strive to do much better,” that faux pas was followed by another: a Science columnist who advised a female scientist to “put up with” a male superior sneaking glimpses down her shirt. “Had I known, I would not have run that column,” she says, adding that the editor involved no longer works for Science. “Women have to decide for themselves what path to take in a situation like that, find a resolution that allows her to go on with her career and allows her to feel okay.” … [Read more...] about Science academy’s new president cleared many hurdles on way to the top
A sense of being an imposter, she admits, continues to dog her. She still works long hours—"I could never juggle [so] many things," Coe says. "But the older she gets the more worried she gets." In 2013, Chisholm's anxiety about the lab and the future of her Prochlorococcus cultures if she retires was so palpable she began to develop minor health problems. Starting tai chi lessons gave her a new perspective. "I needed to do something to get me out of my head," she recalls. She has also found an outlet, with artist and author Molly Bang, writing children's science books, featuring the sun as the narrator. One tells the story of the "invisible pasture of the sea." … [Read more...] about Meet the obscure microbe that influences climate, ocean ecosystems, and perhaps even evolution
Knowing who has already been infected is important for three reasons, Kroll said. One, health care workers who have been exposed and likely have immunity can go to work with less fear, and perhaps use less PPE than those who have not been exposed. That could help ease the strain on scarce PPE supplies, Kroll told Live Science. In addition, by testing the general population, individuals may be able to ease their social-distancing routine and even go back to work first once stay-at-home orders ease. Finally, those who have been sick might be able to help cure those who are severely ill. … [Read more...] about Coronavirus testing is ramping up. Here are the new tests and how they work.
As a personal, opinion-loaded aside, I am not surprised to see this news take so long to break, even though the shops were experimenting with the two-tier pricing scheme as early as August. My last two visits to Seattle's Amazon Books location felt like I had entered a ghost town. In July, the shop's selection and book arrangements looked nearly identical to their status during my November 2015 visit. The staff looked deadfaced and morose. And there were only three other customers on both of my afternoon visits. This was during normal 9 to 5 business hours, but Seattle's University Village shopping center never starves for shoppers thanks to hip shops and a prime location in the city. The shop's selection of Amazon-branded electronics, including Kindle e-book readers and Echo voice-assistance devices, is not subject to this Prime price differentiation. Clearly, however, Amazon wants shoppers to bite on its $99/year (or $10.99/month) subscription program. Unlike some of the … [Read more...] about Not Amazon Prime?
