Why do we treat old people like babies? Ageism.
Elder speak is the condescending language — "Dearie" "Honey" "Sweetie" — many people revert to when talking with people advanced in age. People spoken to in this condescending way, Yale researchers have found, begin to think, act, and even move differently.https://bigthink.com/videos/why-do-we-treat-old-people-like-babies-thats-ageism

No more secrets: Men's make up gone mainstream
Makeup for men is on the rise. And, no, I don't mean makeup for the also expanding cast of Drag Race (although such products do, of course, also exist if you would like to sashay away in a bold lip and glitter eye).

Is an 80-Hour Workweek Enough to Train a Doctor?
Becoming a doctor has always been difficult. In the U.S. it requires four years of college followed by four years of medical school and, depending on the specialty, three or more years of residency training, a period when doctors routinely work up to 80 hours a week. It may then come as a surprise that becoming a doctor is actually easier than it used to be, at least in terms of time spent on the job. Resident doctors in the 1980s, for example, sometimes worked more than 100 hours a week, with hospital shifts frequently lasting more than 30 hours at a stretch. The reason for these grueling hours: a belief by many in the profession that long hours were a rite of passage necessary for giving doctors the clinical skills to practice independently.https://hbr.org/2019/07/is-an-80-hour-workweek-enough-to-train-a-doctor?utm_campaign=hbr&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR3buUklfNh6bB3U5WaKM8DDKIYqS4RKhiRsaF633jRbppVwpLk6PopZlno

Trump Orders air strikes on Iran—then cancels them
AFTER YEARS of fighting through sanctions and proxies, America and Iran have come to the brink of a direct confrontation. On the morning of June 20th Iran shot down an American spy drone over the Strait of Hormuz. Iran claims the aircraft was flying over its territorial waters, while America insists it was above international waters. Although Donald Trump growled that Iran had made a “big mistake”, he soon tried to downplay the incident. “I find it hard to believe it was intentional,” he said before a meeting with the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau. The president suggested that a “stupid” Iranian officer could have approved anti-aircraft fire without the approval of his superiors.https://www.economist.com/middle-east-and-africa/2019/06/21/donald-trump-orders-air-strikes-on-iran-then-cancels-them?fsrc=scn/fb/te/bl/ed/donaldtrumpordersairstrikesoniranthencancelsthemtheattackthatwasnt&fbclid=IwAR3lPD97LnTgSN_CmDG_aq4DBEbY9oc9qccBcWKVCZrOSDUQWmDYi6mp_vY

Women Perform Worse In Chilly Work Environments
We've all worked in offices where it is constantly cold, no matter how many times we email Gary the maintenance guy to turn the air con down. But while shivering at your desk all day is no fun, it turns out Baltic office conditions are also damaging women's performance at work, according to one study. New research has found women work more effectively at maths and verbal tasks at higher temperatures, while oppositely, men perform best in cooler conditions. Performance in cognitive tasks by both men and women was found not to be effected by temperature. http://www.pretty52.com/healthy/life-news-science-proves-women-perform-worse-in-chilly-work-environments-20190523?source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR1WBEZ0man30aBPxQukamHveSMuj8rK8XLDiEeOaOSH_mjzS7f4-16PQxQ
