Construction Workers May Have Found the Mummy of a Long-Lost Iranian Shah
(DUBAI, United Arab Emirates) — A mummified body discovered near the site of a former royal mausoleum in Iran may be the remains of Reza Shah Pahlavi, the founder of the Pahlavi dynasty and the father of the country’s last shah. The recent find of the gauze-wrapped body — and the speculation it triggered — puts new hurdles in the way of the Islamic Republic’s efforts to fully erase the country’s dynastic past, which includes the jack-hammered destruction of the autocrat’s tomb immediately after the 1979 revolution. Yet, as disaffection and economic problems grow ahead of the Islami...

UNISON: 25 years strong
Our union is strong as we approach our 25th anniversary, general secretary Dave Prentis told UNISON’s national executive council at its meeting in London. “The Trade Union Act was designed to break us, but we haven’t allowed that to happen,” he said. The union has now largely secured its income by agreeing new arrangements covering some 8000 employers to allow continued deduction of union subscriptions directly from salaries, as required by the new Act. “Originally the plan was to end check-off altogether and that would have been a massive attack on our union. We fought that off, and now we ha...

Some studies have looked at whether the amount of money a doctor receives makes a difference. Studies by researchers at Yale University, the George Washington University Milken Institute of Public Health and Harvard Medical School have all found that the more money physicians are paid by pharmaceutical companies, the more likely they are to prescribe certain drugs.

Animals Dropped Dead Inside Roman ‘Gate to Hell.’ Scientists Just Figured Out Why
Two millennia ago, a small Greco-Roman temple in present-day Turkey awed and enthralled its residents. Just beyond its stone gate, in a grotto shrouded in a heavy mist, a strange force worked dark deeds: Bulls ushered inside would lie down and perish; the castrated priests in charge would emerge unscathed. Was it the bloodthirsty will of Pluto, the god of the underworld? The supernatural power of the priests? New research published on Feb. 12 in the journal Archaeological and Anthropological Sciences suggests a far earthlier explanation to the cave’s mystery: noxious carbon dioxide.

Motorcycle Response Units in EMS
Motorcycle use in both Fire and EMS is very common outside of the US. In many countries in Europe and Asia, fast response motorcycles are used to reach patients and emergency scenes where dense populations, traffic and small streets in old cities slow traditional ambulance and quick response vehicles (QRV). Distances, poor weather, obstacles or lack of resources can hinder helicopter response, so Motorcycle Response Units (MRUs) are an extremely versatile, efficient way to augment traditional EMS and fire response. Safety is the key for EMS and fire agencies who are considering MRUs to bolster their system capabilities. Wi...
