I never really understood the attraction of the Greek system anyway.
Zeta Phi Beta, a historically black sorority founded at Howard University, says transgender women are not eligible for membership. A “diversity statement” adopted by the Zeta Phi Beta International Executive Board on Jan. 12 states “an individual must be a cisgender woman” to join the organization. The statement at the same time says the sorority “values all people, regardless of race, age, gender, gender expression, ability, disability, creed, religion, or walk of life.”#trans #transgender #ZetaPhiBeta
One of the greatest if not the greatest triumph of biomedical science today is its role in validating ancient healing modalities that long before the advent of science, and even recorded history itself, were passed down "orally" from generation to generation in the vast body of folkloric medical knowledge that still forms the basis for the majority of the world's primary health care system.
These so-called "natural" or "alternative" modalities, which our species owes its present day survivorship to after eons of dependency on them, are increasingly gaining the attention of men and women in white lab coats intent on unlocking the mysteries of how they work, and in many cases, why they work better than patented, synthetic, chemical-based medications.

First the Trump administration unilaterally smashed a multinational, UN-endorsed agreement, the JCPOA, or Iran nuclear deal. Now the waivers that magnanimously allowed eight nations to import oil from Iran without incurring imperial wrath in the form of sanctions will expire on May 2 and won’t be renewed.

Hand dryers v paper towels: the surprisingly dirty fight for the right to dry your hands | The Guardian Long Read
For a century, the humble paper towel has dominated public toilets. But a new generation of hand dryers has sparked a war for loo supremacyThis one is a long read, and will probably need more than one... um... sitting to get through. But it's surprisingly interesting and informative, and amusing in places. And there are ecological factors you might not have considered.
So, automatic hand driers or paper towels? I wash my hands of the whole subject.

Study Suggests Medical Errors Now Third Leading Cause of Death in the U.S… Physicians advocate for changes in how deaths are reported to better reflect reality. Analyzing medical death rate data over an eight-year period, Johns Hopkins patient safety experts have calculated that more than 250,000 deaths per year are due to medical error in the U.S. Their figure, published May 3 in The BMJ, surpasses the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) third leading cause of death — respiratory disease, which kills close to 150,000 people per year.
