The NHS crisis in five charts
Unless you’ve been truly hibernating so far this year, you will have heard that thousands of NHS operations have been cancelled. But what is the NHS winter crisis? Here are five charts that can shed some light. The number of cancelled operations is on the rise Hospitals across the country are having to cancel elective operations. These are the operations that are planned in advance, and they are  cancelled because of an increase in emergencies which take up staff time and hospital space. The data on cancelled operations is published quarterly, so we don’t know the number of cancellations for this month, bu...

Zbigniew Kotowicz obituary
My friend Zbigniew Kotowicz, who has died of cancer aged 67, was a rare, proud, sometimes solitary man with a gift for friendship. He wrote four acclaimed books: on the Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa, on the neurologist Egas Moniz (originator of psycho-surgery), on the psychiatrist RD Laing and on the philosopher Gaston Bachelard. The books themselves are impressive, but their range more striking still. In an age of specialisation, Zbigniew was something of a polymath.A love of literature took root early, as did a radical ’s commitment to the political left, broadly construed. Psychology and psychoanalysis followe...

Could This Protect Implantable Devices from Dangerous Bacteria?
Bacteria may need to find a new home inside the body, as researchers from Georgia Tech’s school of chemical and biomolecular engineering announced this week the development of a new electrochemical etching process that can be used on common stainless steel alloys to create a nanotextured surface with bacteria-killing spikes. If clinical studies continue to progress, the new process could have a big impact on implantable devices, providing a surface that can fight against microbial contamination. The new process is still under investigation as researchers try to understand the specific means by which the material actu...

Newly Discovered Dinosaur Species Looks Like Something Dr. Seuss Dreamed Up
(WASHINGTON) — With a bill like a duck but teeth like a croc’s, a swanlike neck and killer claws, a new dinosaur species uncovered by scientists looks like something Dr. Seuss could have dreamed up. It also had flippers like a penguin, and while it walked like an ostrich it could also swim. That’s the first time swimming ability has been shown for a two-legged, meat-eating dinosaur. The tiny creature, only about 18 inches (45 centimeters) tall, roamed 75 million years ago in what is now Mongolia. Its full curled-up skeleton was found in a sandstone rock. “It’s such a peculiar animal,” sa...

The nail matrix is a multilayered epithelium that physiologically produces keratinization and gives rise to the nail plate. The distal matrix forms the lower 2/3s of the nail plate and the proximal matrix forms the upper 1/3 of the nail plate. the thickness of the nail plate is proportion to the matrix’s thickness. The nail plate’s free edge contour follows the shape of the nail’s lunula. Melanocytes occ...

Researchers also made careful attempts to gather all relevant data and information on confounding factors, and all but one trial had a low risk of bias.

As the story goes, during the American Revolution, in either 1779 or 1781 depending on whom you ask, General George Washington (or a messenger sent by him) burst into a Yom Kippur service at Philadelphia’s first synagogue to beg for money to feed a starving, bankrupt Continental Army.

Conclusion This study shows that all physical activity, in any form, is good for us. This includes both recreational and non-recreational activities. Don't be misled by some of the media: non-recreational activities like housework are not "better" than recreational activities like playing sports or going to the gym. The fact that reduced risk was seen with non-recreational activity across all countries, but only seen with recreational activity in high-income countries was probably just because fewer people in lower-income countries play sports or go to the gym.
