She originally earned a degree in business management but soon decided to go back to school to pursue her dream of helping others. Beggs was in the middle of an accelerated nursing program, which she says packs three years’ worth of education into one year, when the pandemic shut everything down, forcing her to continue her education online. She said remote learning made it difficult to collaborate with other students. And there were no hands-on learning opportunities for her to put her knowledge to use. So, she started ..read more

The iconic pit bull isn’t exactly America’s favorite breed of dog. In fact, it’s one of the most reviled. Pit bulls are known to bite humans more than other breeds, which makes it difficult for them to find a home. These dogs deserve to live a happy, healthy life just like any other animal, but they need to be sheltered in a way that reduces their threat to the public. American dog shelters have a pit bull problem on their hands. More than 50% of all pitbulls in the U.S. are either up for sale or adoption, and between 19% and 32% of all dogs taken to shelters are pit bulls. And getting rid of ..read more

5d ago
The number of patients assigned to each nurse varies from hospital to hospital, but nurses say they are being asked to care for more patients than they can handle. If the nurse-patient ratio is too high, nurses might not have time to do everything that’s required of them in a day. They may end up working overtime or forgo breaks just to get it all done, which can lead to burnout and higher turnover rates that leave the remaining nurses short staffed. High ratios also put patients at risk. Nurses won’t have as much time to monitor their patients for issues or double-check their work when admini ..read more

A group of scientists in Berlin, Germany say they are close to developing the world’s first artificial womb facility that grows babies outside of the human body. Parents would be able to watch their baby develop on a remote app and choose their child’s physical characteristics from a menu. The project, known as EctoLife, would be able to create 30,000 babies a year using a ground-breaking approach developed by researcher Hashem Al-Ghaili. The technology can be used to genetically modify the embryo before it is implanted in the artificial womb. Parents can use the model to select the child’s ey ..read more
