12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos by Jordan B Peterson – digested read
‘Here’s a rule that’s catnip for right-wingers everywhere: do not bother children while they are skateboarding’Just a few years ago, I was an unknown professor writing academic books that nobody read. Then, with God ’s help, I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and develop my potential. Pinkos and wishy-washy liberals had cornered the market in cod psychology, so I guessed there must be a huge hunger for a self-help book, backed up with religion, mythology, CAPITAL LETTERS and stating the obvious – on e directed at responsible, socially minded conservatives craving some pseudointel...

Robert Haggerty, M.D., former Chair of the Department of Pediatrics, died on Tuesday. He was 92. Throughout a career that spanned six decades, Haggerty led numerous child health initiatives that changed the way that pediatricians — and in some cases, entire health systems — practice medicine.

The 2018 influenza season has hit hard in the U.S. and elsewhere, spreading far and wide and leading to the deaths of at least 30 children. But when Laura Spinney hears the news about this flu season, she has an extra layer of context. Spinney’s recent book Pale Rider explores the legacy of the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, a devastating episode 100 years ago that killed perhaps as many as 100 million people across the globe. “Although this does seem to be a particularly bad flu, it is still season...

Early Detection of HIV May Be as Easy as Spitting
When it comes to HIV screening, healthcare workers often have to make a choice between using a reliable, albeit time-consuming blood test — or a simple, less accurate saliva test. The blood test is much more reliable at detecting signs of infection, but health officials often have a difficult time getting patients to volunteer blood. The other alternative is to rely on oral fluid-based tests that, while quicker and simpler, are frequently inconclusive because HIV antibodies accumulate at lower levels in saliva. A group of researchers from Stanford hope to change that with a new saliva-based test that combines the con...
