Today’s no-nonsense consumers are no doubt more visual, critical, and hard to please. All companies, big or small, cannot just tell their target markets to go out and buy their products or subscribe to their services, and expect people to do so just like that.

Doctors Bullying Nurses Is A Sad And Terrifying Epidemic

Nurses deserve respect, too.

Within an eight to twelve-hour shift, nurses deal with a lot of problems - emergencies, patient concerns, issues with other hospital departments, and probably their own personal troubles, to name a few. And, as if those are not enough loads for a nurse to carry, here comes patients and relatives who rudely treat nurses. The thing is, even other healthcare professionals treat nurses poorly - even doctors do.

Sadly, a significant number of doctors are bullies and such bullying culture places nurses and patients at risk. Stories of doctors berating nurses, screaming profanities at them, and even physically assaulting them at times have been circulating on the internet, in the news, and in the hospital break rooms. Sure, nurses don't always fight back, but the effect that such kind of treatment and behavior has on them and on patients affect the quality of care delivered.

An article published on Slate revealed just how massive a problem is nurse bullying. A survey conducted by the Institute for Safe Medical Practices in 2013 shows that in the year prior, 87% of nurses came across doctors who were "reluctant or refused to answer questions or return calls," while 74% received “condescending or demeaning comments or insults.” About 42% answered that they have experienced being shamed and humiliated by doctors, or had malicious rumors spread about them. Another 26% of nurses responded that physicians have thrown objects at them.

The Story of Kolmanskop, Former Diamond Mine and Now Ghost Town in the Namib Desert

The town has long since said goodbye to its glory days.

Ghost towns may be creepy, but they always have good stories to tell. Case in point, the Kolmanskop in the middle of the Namib desert in South Africa. Here, no humans can be found, only decrepit houses partly swallowed by the sand. They are witnesses to a once thriving town.

The story goes that in 1908, railway worker Zacharias Lewala, while shoveling in the desert, noticed a sparkling stone. Convinced the stone was a diamond, Lewala decided to show his discovery to his supervisor, German railway inspector August Stauch, for confirmation.

Kolmanskop is located in the middle of the Namib desert in South Africa.

Here’s Why You Should Eat And Not Discard Your Eggshells

Don’t discard them; eat them instead!

Most people eat the eggs and throw away the eggshells without thinking about eating it. After all, having to think about eating eggshells might gross some people out. But science has found eggshells are nutritious and they are great sources of calcium. According to a 2003 review, eggshells have been found to have a number of good properties, especially when they are ground to become powder.

For instance, an animal study has shown the positive effect eggshell powder has on bone density in postmenopausal osteoporosis. It was also stated that the bioavailability of calcium was the same as or much better than the food-grade purified calcium carbonate.

Eggshells contain 95% of calcium carbonate and so they are good for bone and teeth health. The International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition says that half an eggshell is enough to provide the recommended daily calcium intake. Eggshells cannot be eaten straight up though after breaking the eggs. To make it work, they will still need to be pulverized – this is an important step in eating eggshells.
