The lingerie industry is no stranger to mission-driven brands. Over the past few years, at least a dozen U.S.-based intimates brands, including Savage x Fenty and Aerie , have gained popularity thanks to their dedication to body positivity. Now, a different type of mission is taking hold of the industry: breast cancer awareness. Dana Donofree was one of the first to embrace this mission. She was diagnosed with breast cancer a day before her 28th birthday, and not long after, she learned that she needed a bilateral mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. Breast cancer is more than the pink ribbon and smiling women in breast cancer awareness ads, she thought. In addition to intense emotional distress , she also had to cope with painful and permanent changes to her body. Donofree, now 40, eventually learned to love her new body. But after her surgeries, she started searching for new bras, and was consistently disappointed. The only mastectomy bras available were … [Read more...] about These Inclusive Lingerie Brands Are Putting a Spotlight on Breast Cancer

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin As healthcare systems face increasing societal scrutiny and criticism, restoring trust is critical to improving public health. According to a study , if mistrust goes unchecked, it can erode physician-patient relationships and effectuate poorer patient outcomes and prevalent burnout among doctors. Healthcare leaders have taken steps to address this issue. For example, many organizations now utilize customer experience metrics to measure the quality and trustworthiness of their services. But has it made a difference? The 2022 Edelman Trust Barometer concluded that public trust in healthcare systems is, in fact, declining. This is problematic for a variety of reasons. First, patients may be less likely to seek medical help if they distrust the system. Second, physicians may be discouraged from providing care due to negative public opinion. Disparities in how healthcare systems treated different races, genders, and … [Read more...] about Leaders Are Restoring Trust In Healthcare—But How?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Seattle Sounders defender Alex Roldan sank to the turf, head in hands in disappointment after inadvertently deflecting Mohamed Afsha’s volley past goalkeeper Stefan Frei. The goal, credited to Afsha, was enough to give Al Ahly the win and see them advance to the semifinal of the FIFA Club World Cup at the Sounders expense—with the added reward of a matchup against storied European champions, Real Madrid. As referee Anthony Taylor blew the final whistle, the players and staff on Al Ahly’s bench streamed onto the pitch in celebration. The crowd erupted, with the most concentrated celebrations coming from a group of hardcore Ahly supporters behind one of the goals. It was as if a cup final had been won, while Roldan’s reaction was as if one had been lost. Outside of the European soccer bubble, maybe this tournament means something after all. It was certainly meaningful for Seattle Sounders, and arguably for American … [Read more...] about What Does Seattle Sounders Club World Cup Defeat Mean For US Soccer?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Everyone has their breaking point. I suppose you could also say that everything has its breaking point. We know that humans for example can sometimes snap and utter remarks that they don’t necessarily mean to say. Likewise, you can at times get a device or machine to essentially snap, such as pushing your car too hard and it starts to falter or fly apart. Thus, the notion is that people or “everyone” likely has a breaking point, and similarly we can assert that objects and things, in general, also tend to have a breaking point. There could be quite sensible and vital reasons to ascertain where the breaking point exists. For example, you’ve undoubtedly seen those videos showcasing a car being put through its paces to identify what breaking points it has. Scientists and testers will ram a car into a brick wall to see how well the bumper and the structure of the vehicle can withstand the adverse action.
