7 Questions With Record-Setting Italian Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti
Odds are you can’t account for where you were on every one of the 200 days that elapsed from November 23, 2014 to June 11, 2015. But Samantha Cristoforetti can, since she spent them all aboard the International Space Station. Cristoforetti, Italy’s first female astronaut, set what was then a record for single-mission duration by a woman in space—and that achievement was just one in a lifetime of them. A former captain in the Italian Air Force, Cristoforetti won her fighter pilot’s wings in 2006, after earning a Master’s degree in mechanical engineering. She has been awarded the Order of Merit...

Invest in the health workforce and public services to learn pandemic lessons
Proper investment in the NHS workforce and run-down public services, as well as the creation of a national care service, are key to the UK’s pandemic recovery, says UNISON today (Monday).

Blog: After everything, a pay cut is the bitterest of blows
UNISON’s health conference, held online today and tomorrow, is an important opportunity for health workers to discuss what’s important to them, and to use our union’s democracy to shape what we do next. It’s often our paramedics, nurses, cleaners, porters and healthcare assistants who front up many of our high-profile campaigns in UNISON. But whether someone works in a public-facing role or a job behind the scenes, they are part of one team. Because everyone’s job makes a difference in keeping the NHS running, and on the care and support patients get. That’s why UNISON’s OneTeam2K ...
