Dear Nurses,

On June 22nd we launched registration for our virtual conference on nurse entrepreneurship and career alternatives. The National Nurses in Business Association is celebrating 35 years in business! That means 35 years of sharing information on business opportunities, best practices, business planning tools, and strategies. We love sharing communication on this conference with nurses, especially in our current healthcare environment.

I’ve included AI Powered Healthcare because of how this technology will be affecting healthcare delivery in the future. Artificial Intelligence can generate important health data without any patient contact.

10 Myths About the Mind

Psychology Today
It has been clear for several weeks that nursing homes and other long-term care settings have been Ground Zero for a significant portion of COVID-19 outbreaks since the pandemic hit our shores. So it’s good new for providers and patients alike that researchers at MIT’s Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) institute have announced that a remote monitoring system they’ve been developing is showing signs of promise.

According to reports, “(t)he system, known as RF-ReID – for ‘radio-frequency re-identification’ – works by analyzing small changes in the wireless signal of an indoor environment,” and CSAIL scientists have recently published a research report that explains how the tool, which can remotely distinguish and the heart rate and respiration patterns of up to 40 unique persons, could provide continuous remote monitoring especially for people living together in group settings such as nursing homes.

"The new invention allows us to identify measurements from the same person, but without collecting identifying private information about them, including their appearance," explained Prof. Dina Katabi, director of the MIT Wireless Center, who has been the lead researcher on the technology for years.
Working from home is difficult at the best of times. But right now with partners and children at home, along with a heap of other distractions, it can be difficult to be as productive as you need to be.

Before the pandemic hit, WD Storage was working on some content to help the workforce find a better work life balance because it’s something that seemingly no one can perfect. They looked to the most successful entrepreneurs for tips and advice on how they were managing their lifestyles and we thought now would be a perfect time to share with you their findings.

We aspire to be as successful as some of the top industry names. Larry Page, founder of Google; Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook; Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon who is about to be a trillionaire. But to be at that level, many will assume they work all hours of the day and don’t have time for a social life.

In fact the reality is a little different. There’s no doubt these entrepreneurs are hardworking but they find the time for daily exercise, 8 hours of sleep at night and to sit down with their family for the evening meal, all without burnout. So how are they managing it?

It’s high time we put the most enduring myths about human behavior to bed, and see the mind—and the world—as it is.

Myths come in many shades. Some notions are baldly incorrect: There is no evidence that humans use only 10 percent of their brains, for instance. Then there are misconceptions that contain a modicum of truth, or were once widely believed by experts. Some gain traction because they promise up-by-the-bootstraps solutions and a heavy dose of self-determination: It became faddish to tout 10,000 hours of practice as a surefire path to expertise. Plenty of misconceptions involve cleaving people into discrete categories, artificial distinctions that belie the complexity of the human mind. And there are myths that serve as hedges against an unjust world: If multiple intelligences exist and everyone excels at something, the world would be a bit more fair. It’s high time we put the most enduring myths about human behavior to bed, and see the mind—and the world—as it is.

1. BIRTH ORDER - Personality is not shaped by whether one is a firstborn, the youngest, or an only child.

You’ve heard it from grade school on: Firstborn children become strong-willed, dominant adults.
