Sleep and Slumber

by Jill Carattini It is commendable that the city that never sleeps is at least taking naps. MetroNaps, a New York company that was founded in 2003 and tested at Carnegie Mellon University, provides a chance for over-worked employees, shoppers, and travelers to put their busy schedules on hold. The goal, to fight workplace fatigue, started with workers in Manhattan and has since spread in cities across four continents.

The Forgotten Heartbeat

by Abhishek Shibu It’s a cold February morning as I get ready for yet another day in the lab.  Open the door; a step outside; deep breath and it hits me, ‘Love is in the air’; or maybe it’s just my allergies.  Echoes of the philosopher Ted Mosby ring in my ears, “Love is totally non-sensical. But we have to keep doing it, or else we’re lost, and love is dead, and humanity just packed in.  Because love is the best thing we do.” Clearly, I have procrastinated keeping my appointment with the ENT long enough.  But it’s a thought […]
