What is in the Differential Diagnosis of Fatigue?
Discussion Fatigue is a subjective feeling of decreased energy, tiredness or feeling of exhaustion. Lethargy is often used synonymously, but lethargy is a state of being drowsiness or sleepy, and implies mental status changes. Both can cause the person to be apathetic or less active.

For most people it is a relatively acute or short-term chronic problem, often with a relatively easily identifiable problem cause, such as inadequate sleep, acute illness, or overexertion. For some, it can be less readily identifiable such as dep...

The Christmas Letters
One of my greatest regrets after the loss of my late husband is that he never wrote our kids special letters telling them just how much he loved them. His death was an accident, so we didn’t know better – we didn’t expect him to go. I’d love to be able to bring that individual letter out when they are sad or when they are missing him, but that’s just not possible. It has been seven years since his untimely death, and despite knowing better, I’ve never written a letter to my kids. I’m rectifying that this Christmas and writing them both a special message to keep forever that explain...

[Technical Comment] Comment on “Cycling Li-O2 batteries via LiOH formation and decomposition”
Based on a simple thermodynamic analysis, we show that iodide-mediated electrochemical decomposition of lithium hydroxide (LiOH) likely occurs through a different mechanism than that proposed by Liu et al. (Research Article, 30 October 2015, p. 530). The mismatch in thermodynamic potentials for iodide/triiodide (I−/I3−) redox and O2 evolution from LiOH implies a different active iodine/oxygen electrochemistry on battery charge. It is therefore possible that the system described in Liu et al. may not form the basis for a rechargeable lithium-oxygen (Li-O2) battery. Authors: Venkatasubramanian Viswanathan, Vikram...

LONDON, Feb 5 (Reuters) - A sixth sperm whale has died on a British beach, the latest of nearly 30 to have become stranded in shallow waters on the coastline of Europe's North Sea over the past month. As marine pathologists cut samples from the whale's carcass on the windswept expanse of sand at low tide, scientists said it was too early to know exactly why so many whales had taken a wrong turn into the North Sea. Since mid-January, 29 sperm whales have died on beaches in the Netherlands, France, Germany and Britain.
