Most of those who have experienced Edgewood State Hospital agree it was the most intriguing and impressive
of the Long Island mental asylums. Some of the buildings belonging to the other large Long Island mental
hospitals – Kings Park, and Pilgrim State – are still standing, but their future is unclear. Since
Edgewood State Hospital was demolished in 1989, many urban explorers might have never seen it, or heard of it – and
many are just discovering it.

How to Set Fitness Goals You’ll Actually Achieve, According to Top Trainers

Fitness goals are important on several counts. They hold us accountable, expand our definition of possible, and encourage us to push through temporary discomfort for longer-lasting change. But figuring out how to set fitness goals you’ll actually want to attain can be part art, part science.

Mark DiSalvo, NYC-based certified strength and conditioning specialist, explains it this way: A good fitness goal can be “your North Star when you have bad days,” he tells SELF. In other words, a goal, if thoughtful and well structured, can give you the extra incentive to keep going when motivation wanes, or when life otherwise gets in the way.

The problem is that during this time of year, it’s easy to get caught up in the rush of New Year’s resolutions and set goals that are too lofty, unsustainable, and otherwise unrealistic. We then fail to achieve them and feel worse about ourselves than

The history of medicine can be traced back as far as Neolithic man, but our understanding of medicine began with the Sumerians. Our knowledge of anatomy began with the Greeks, but truly took hold during the Middle Ages. Modern medicine can be traced back to discoveries made in the 17th century. That’s when William Harvey demonstrated the circulation of blood in the body, quinine was used to treat Read more

The Brno University Hospital in the city of Brno, Czech Republic, has been hit by a cyberattack right in the middle of a COVID-19 outbreak that is picking up steam in the small central European country.

Hospital officials have not revealed the nature of the security breach; however, the incident was deemed severe enough to postpone urgent surgical interventions, and re-route new acute patients to nearby St. Anne’s University Hospital, local media reported.

The hospital was forced to shut down its entire IT network during the incident, and two of the hospital’s other branches, the Children’s Hospital and the Maternity Hospital, were also impacted.

The infection took root at around 5 a.m. in the morning, local time, Peter Gramantik, a patient in the hospital at the time, and a security researcher with Sucuri told ZDNet via email today.

“The hospital public announcement system started to

Coronavirus Claims Cause FDA To Go After 41 Bogus Homeopathy, Supplement And ‘Alternative’ Medicine Products

Journalist Chris Cuomo and his spouse were criticized after endorsing a variety of nonsense products recommended by their “naturopath” to treat his COVID-19 – claims that involved light energy, tinctures and a variety of useless placebos.

They are more common than the U.S. Food and Drug Administration either realizes or is willing to admit. Maybe they don’t worry more because President Clinton’s Dietary Supplement and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) tied their hands, and $35 billion a year in bogus products are allowed to bilk the public if they simply put a tiny disclaimer at the bottom noting FDA has not evaluated their cosmic claims. Wealthy elites like the Cuomos flock to these alternatives because their intellectual proclivities cause them to believe Science Is A Corporate Conspiracy and that nature used to cure everything until Big Pharma pushed that out of the way.

The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative

Hospitals and maternity units set a powerful example for new mothers.
The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative ( BFHI ), launched in 1991, is
an effort by UNICEF and the World Health Organization to ensure that
all maternities,whether free standing or in a hospital, become centers
of breastfeeding support.

A father watches as his wife breastfeeds their new baby in the
maternity ward of the Singburi Hospital, in the town of the same
name. Fathers are encouraged to learn about the benefits and become
active supporters of breastfeeding.

Thailand
is one of 12 developing countries to take the lead in instituting
the “ten steps” of baby-friendly practice in as many hospitals
as possible.

A maternity facility can be designated ‘baby-friendly’ when it does
