Zoe Ko Talks Heartbreak And Mental Health in an

Zoe Ko Press Shot

C/O Artist

At least it helps her make good music, I note. She laughs and nods…

“And it becomes a problem. I’ll worry about it then.”

Armed with a fringe haircut, firework vocals, and her Queens roots, Zoe Ko is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter whose bangers make love a little less unnavigable. Her Spotify bio invites listeners to “Come here when you feel like sh*t.” And her latest single is already stuck in my head.

This one’s on the rise. Read on to have all your Zoe Ko questions answered.

What’s Zoe Ko’s Latest Single?

Zoe Ko’s latest single, “Til U,” is heartbreak set to a poppy pulse. 

Dramatic claims are a love-gone-wrong song staple (think Conan Gray or Olivia Rodrigo), and there’s no shortage of them in Ko’s track. Among other bold statements, Ko wistfully recalls a lover’s words that “tast[ed] like bliss,” declares she’s been “left with a heart [she doesn’t] want anymore,” and, thinking back to her pre-relationship world, pines for

Gun violence is a public health crisis

Recent mass shootings show it’s long past time for accountability and action

Staff report

National Nurse Magazine – April | May | June 2022 Issue

On May 14, a white supremacist shot and killed 10 Black people at the Tops supermarket in Buffalo, N.Y. Ten days later, 19 elementary school children and two teachers were shot and killed in Texas. A week after that, a patient shot four people dead at a Tulsa, Okla. medical office before killing himself. After these horrors, nurses know that moral outrage is not enough. There must be accountability and action. The lack of strong gun control laws threatens public health.

“Gun violence is a public health emergency,” said National Nurses United President Jean Ross, RN. This year alone, there have been more than 200 mass shootings, following nearly 45,000 gun-violence deaths in the United States last year. Gun violence has become the leading cause of death for children and teens up to the age of 19.

“These terrifying events in Buffalo and Uvalde must be a call to action,” Ross continued. “We cannot let politicians and lobbyists who have sanctioned gun violence by blocking common-sense reforms continue to allow this devastation of our communities

Three Penn State Health hospitals recognized in US News

HERSHEY, Pa. — Three Penn State Health hospitals have been recognized by U.S. News & World Report in its annual “Best Hospitals” rankings and ratings for 2022-23. U.S. News ranks hospitals for excellent care for the most complex cases in 15 adult specialties, and rates hospitals for their performance in treating common surgical procedures and medical conditions.

Penn State Health’s Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Holy Spirit Medical Center and St. Joseph Medical Center received honors from the magazine.

For the sixth year in a row, the Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation at Hershey Medical Center is ranked as one of the best in the nation for orthopedic care, at No. 46. Hershey Medical Center also is recognized as “High Performing” in five additional specialties: gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology and lung surgery and urology.

For “Best Regional Hospitals,” Hershey Medical Center ranked No. 1 in the Harrisburg metro region, and No. 5 in Pennsylvania.

Holy Spirit Medical Center is rated as a “High Performing” hospital for treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure and stroke. St. Joseph Medical Center earned a “High Performing” rating for treating COPD, heart failure and

Healthcare Workers at a High Risk of Clinical Depression

New research shows work is a major risk factor related to depression rates, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“These results provide potential explanations for the likely causes of poor psychological health amongst HCWs,” the authors wrote. “We propose several potential interventions related to professional factors and health risk behaviors.”

A team, led by Guillaume Fond, Assistance Publique des Hôpitaux de Marseille, Aix-Marseille University, CEReSS-Health Service Research and Quality of Life Center, determined the rate of clinical depression in a national sample of healthcare workers in France following the COVID-19 pandemic and identified related factors, including professional, individual, and health-related risk behaviors.

The Problem

In recent years, investigators have found that work is a major determinant of physical and mental health, with healthcare workers being especially prone to depression during the COVID-19 pandemic. This can have a direct impact on care quality and productivity.

In the study, the investigators sent a survey with a number of standardized scales to public and private healthcare facilitates through the mail or disseminated the surveys through emails from professional associations and social networks.

The investigators identified the related factors using a structural equation modelling analysis.

The Survey

Overall, the surveys were sent to 10,325 individuals,

HHS alerts to ongoing healthcare web app attacks, urges

Healthcare entities are being urged to review tactics and potential remediation strategies for ongoing web application attack campaigns targeting the sector. The Department of Health and Human Services Cybersecurity Coordination Center shared insights into health sector impacts.

HC3 considers web apps programs stored on a remote server and delivered on a browser interface that require user interaction. Cyberattacks against these applications primarily involve direct targeting of the “most exposed infrastructure” or other vulnerability of an enterprise to create unintended or unanticipated behavior.

Web app attacks commonly rely on stolen credentials or exploit a known vulnerability. In healthcare, the most common web app attacks occur on patient portals, telehealth platforms, online pharmacies, electronic health records, health entities’ web-based email, and similar tech.

The new HC3 guidance details the most typical attack types used against web apps, including Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. In healthcare, DDoS attacks are commonly motivated by political, hacktivist, or financial gain and rely on extortion tactics. The health sector bore the brunt of DDoS in 2021, driven by COVID-19 and school reopenings.

DDoS attacks are particularly effective in healthcare given the flood of network traffic that renders resources and web applications unusable. Threat actors will also

A longtime loyalty. Usher is sharing an update on Justin Bieber following his Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis — and giving thanks to those who have stuck by his friend’s side.

“He is doing great,” Usher, 43, told Extra during an interview that was published Sunday, July 17. “Seeing him on vacation, we managed to hang out with each other, and I think that whatever he may be experiencing right now, it’s actually really great to see that he has the support from his fans and his family.”

The Voice alum, who recently went on holiday with the “Sorry” artist, 28, and his wife Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin), went on to praise the Canada native’s career path over the past decade. “[Justin] has obviously taken the world on a journey. I am happy that I was at the beginning of, and I am still a part of [his journey] to this day, as a friend,” he gushed at the time.

The Texas native and Grammy Award winner have been musically linked since 2009, collaborating on songs including 2009’s “First Dance,” “Somebody to Love (Remix),”

Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation, 1515 S. Osprey Ave., Suite B4 Sarasota. 941-917-1286,

In the July/August 2022 edition of SRQ Magazine, we interviewed Mason Ayres, President of Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation as part of our In Conversation feature about nonprofit leaders. Below is an excerpt published in the magazine in which Ayres his insights with SRQ readers on community growth and changes.

We are a community that’s bursting at the seams at the moment. There are a tremendous number of new residents every day. How does that affect your organization, both in the pressures involved and the benefits to the system from having new people coming?

I think the hospital definitely has seen and has anticipated to some extent the growth that’s going on in our community overall. And that’s what’s pushing them to continue to expand services for the community as it relates to how people can benefit. It’s kind of interesting in our role from the philanthropy side. It really gives the community an opportunity to step in and help the hospital continue to expand out its services. They can play a very

7 Steps to Design an Effective Wireless Network in

For example, a wireless predictive model designed for Philips Telemetry included Vocera B3000n badges for doctors and VoIP communications for nurses. In this case, the Vocera WLAN requirements and Vocera Best Practices documentation were used for this model because Vocera devices had greater WLAN coverage requirements:

  • Primary Signal Strength: -65
  • Secondary Signal Strength: -67
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio: 25
  • Data Rate: 12
  • Channel Interference: 1 at minimum Signal Strength of -85
  • TX Power: Max 16 dBm (40 mW) – Min 13 dBm (20 mW)

This Philips Telemetry model was designed only for 5GHz. Unnecessary 2.4GHz radios were disabled during the design and staging of the access points. Alternatively, the wireless engineer can place disabled radios into monitor mode to optimize location tracking and security. One of the most critical steps when designing a wireless network in the healthcare environment is using 20MHz channel width.  The importance of implementing a 20MHz channel width rather than 40MHz or 80MHz channel bonding cannot be stressed enough. Utilizing a 20MHz channel width in high density deployments allows the reuse of channels to minimize co-channel interference.

A valuable predictive model design incorporates the use of 20MHz channel width and looks to achieve a high-performing 5GHz wireless network

What Gastroenterologists Have To Say About TikTok’s

Gut health has become huge topic of conversation online, and while not all trends are healthy to try, there are some that just might be worthwhile. Enter, the internal shower drink.

This concoction is made with six ounces of water, two tablespoons of chia seeds and lemon juice. The drink, which was popularized on TikTok and Instagram, has users claiming it is a great natural constipation reliever, especially if you’ve been traveling. The creator of the drink, chiropractor and celebrity nutritionist Daryl Gioffre, says that he drinks it on an empty stomach to naturally eliminate waste.

After stirring the mixture and letting it sit for five minutes, the chia seeds will have become plump and formed a gel-like consistency. This is because chia seeds are a kind of soluble fiber, meaning they attract water. This gel is supposed to thicken and push along bowel movements in the intestinal tract, making it easier to go.

While some gastroenterologists are weary of the drink, saying it may cause abdominal bloating, diarrhea and discomfort if you drink too much, some claim consuming the drink is like taking a couple tablespoons of Metamucil, curing occasional bouts of constipation.
