Coffee prices skyrocket after Brazil drought, CNN Money: #Nurseup #Nursefriendly #Nurselife #Economy #Inflation

Coffee prices skyrocket after Brazil drought, CNN Money:"Coffee prices have doubled since late last year, and drinkers of the black stuff may soon start to notice.
The culprit: a severe drought in Brazil, the origin of roughly a third of the world's coffee.
The dry spell has wreaked havoc on this year's harvest of Arabica beans, which are used for the vast majority of global coffee production."

Uncovering the answer to a case of chronic hip pain, Martine Ehrenclou, @Med_writer #Nurseup #Healthcare #Diagnosis

Uncovering the answer to a case of chronic hip pain, +Martine Ehrenclou, @Med_writer:"My husband suffered with hip and low back pain for about four months. It started right about the same time he was prescribed a new blood pressure medication. He didn’t think much of the pain at first because he was recovering from a groin injury, the result of a close encounter with a hockey puck while playing the game.

But the pain grew in intensity over the following weeks. He’s a bit of a tough guy and sometimes it takes some sleuthing to figure out what’s bothering him. As with most tough guys, Jamie tends to forge on with his normal level of activity even if something is wrong. I think that’s called denial. But he’d started applying ice packs to his lower back and hips each morning and night so I knew he was really suffering. I’d encouraged him to see our primary care physician, which he did for an overdue physical exam."

Going to keep a list of people here we appreciate and admire their contributions to nursing.  To add to this list, start a new thread and include "kind words" or "kudos" in the title and I'll add it.
