Robert was an older man who lived independently and worked full time. He was diagnosed simultaneously with metastatic cancer and myasthenia gravis, an autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that causes muscle weakness in the eyes, face, and throat.

Scientists Successfully Attached a Pig Kidney to Human For the First Time
Scientists temporarily attached a pig’s kidney to a human body and watched it begin to work, a small step in the decades-long quest to one day use animal organs for life-saving transplants. Pigs have been the most recent research focus to address the organ shortage, but among the hurdles: A sugar in pig cells, foreign to the human body, causes immediate organ rejection. The kidney for this experiment came from a gene-edited animal, engineered to eliminate that sugar and avoid an immune system attack.

The ‘Great Resignation’ Is Finally Getting Companies to Take Burnout Seriously. Is It Enough?
Toward the end of last year, Anthony Klotz, a professor of business administration at Texas A&M University who studies workplace resignations, realized that a lot of people were about to quit their jobs. A record 42.1 million Americans quit a job in 2019, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data, but that rate dropped off during the pandemic-addled year of 2020. As 2021 approached, bringing with it the promise of effective vaccines and a return to semi-normal life, Klotz guessed that two things would happen. First, many of the people who wanted to quit in 2020 but held off due to fear or uncertainty would fina...
