First, do no harm. The main tenet of the Hippocratic Oath doctors take when beginning their career to care for patients. But what happens when they have to navigate roadblocks that prevent them from putting patients first? Issues of insurance, electronic medical record-keeping, litigation, and budgets mean many doctors face as much time filling out forms as they do at the bedside.
According to Dr Wendy Dean, “every time medical professionals have to choose anything other than their patient, it can be indicative of moral injury, or it predisposes them to moral injury.” Dr Dean and Dr Simon Talbot first used this term in a 2018 opinion piece that resonated with many.
The term ‘moral injury’ has its roots in war. It was first used to explain why military veterans were not responding to standard treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder. Moral injury, as defined by researchers from veterans’ hospitals, refers to the emotional, physical and spiritual harm people feel after “perpetrating, failing to prevent, or bearing witness to acts that transgress deeply held moral beliefs and expectations.” Talbot and Dean concluded that moral injury describes the conundrum of today’s medical professionals: They know how best to care for their patients but are blocked from doing so by systemic barriers related to the business side of healthcare.
On the next episode we’ll examine this concept of moral injury in the medical field, and the toll it may be having

In this rereleased interview from 1998, Christopher Hitchens, a contributing editor of Vanity Fair magazine, is a self-proclaimed radical. William F. Buckley, Jr., editor-at-large of National Review magazine, is one of the most noted conservatives in the country. During the 1960’s, Hitchens enjoyed the counter-culture, whereas Buckley was one of the founders of the politically conservative counter counter-culture. Thirty years later (1998), and Hitchens and Buckley are still wrangling over the Revolution.
Movement for much of China’s population of 1.4 billion people is, to some extent, restricted in an attempt to slow the spread of the potentially deadly coronavirus.
The lockdown is most strict in Hubei province, where the outbreak started, but elsewhere there are compulsory quarantine periods and people are just not stepping out much.
Some businesses remain closed and life is anything but normal.
China Correspondent Stephen McDonnell donned his face mask and took to Beijing’s all-but-empty streets to see how people are coping.

Every third week, a British Royal Mail ship begins its journey from Cape Town to Saint Helena, the remote island in the Atlantic where Napoleon was once in exile. It’s like the end of the world in the middle of the Atlantic. Five days, with a northwesterly course, and only then do the sheer black cliffs appear in front of RMS St. Helena. The island’s 4500 residents are often waiting impatiently for the ship’s arrival and panic if the schedule changes. Director Thomas Denzel and his team went on the journey to Saint Helena and met the people living on the island. Many of the residents are descendants of people who were sent into exile there by the British crown – the most famous among them, the French Emperor Napoleon. This is a report about life at the end of the world, loneliness, unique vegetation, and a very special journey.

For over 20 years NASA has been tracking the global surface topography of the ocean in order to understand the important role it plays in our daily lives. Climate change is causing our ocean to warm and glaciers to melt, resulting in sea level rise. Since 1880, the global sea level has risen 8 inches; by 2100, it is projected to rise another 1 to 4 feet. :::
