The recent death of Oscar-winning actor and comedian, Robin Williams, has brought attention to the challenges of those who suffer from depression. It is estimated that 1 in 10 adults struggle with depression (Centers for Disease Control). Depression can be debilitating to those who suffer, as well as affecting their family and friends. It can also adversely affect outcomes of chronic and other health conditions.

What does air pollution have to do with nursing practice and research? Recently, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy highlighted the importance of nurses and environmental health in this blogpost: http://blog.epa.gov/epaconnect/2014/07/acting-on-climate-change-nurses/ which states, “ Nurses know that the easiest ailment to treat is one that never develops—and as trusted health professionals, our nation’s 3 million nurses can have a huge impact on their patients and communities.”

You might like reading PULSE, as I do. It “reveals the personal side of health care through stories, poems, and images.” The authors include many different types of healthcare providers, as well as patients. Treat yourself to a brief weekly story, or a haiku. Wise, warm, witty, sobering, sad, searing, happy, hopeful, loving, critical – it’s all here. Join me in staying open to life in all of its complexity.

The Medical Library Association (MLA), The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL), the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL), and the Special Libraries Association (SLA) believe that equal access to information is a fundamental principle of the Internet.
We value the principle of net neutrality, under which all content, sites, and platforms are treated equally.
What is net neutrality? http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~raylin/whatisnetneutrality.htm
Our organizations oppose any open Internet rules that would allow for a tiered system of access, as is presently proposed in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking under Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996.
