Weekend Reading

jjhq1.jpegAhhh… the sun is finally shining in lovely New Brunswick, New Jersey after a very rainy week.

As we head into one of the final weekends of the summer, here’s some light reading for your enjoyment:

Mother Jones at Nurse Ratched’s Place has some terrific guidance to students heading off to nursing school. Very wise advice that all students can learn from — and the cover shots of vintage novels that she includes are priceless.

Students however, have mixed emotions about going back to school, especially nursing students. On the one hand, nursing students look forward to entering a profession that is held in high esteem, but on the other hand, they know that their life is about to be turned up-side-down. Never fear, Mother’s here, and I’m going to give you some tips on how to survive nursing school.

Are redheads going extinct? And, if so, is this a marketing opportunity? BrandWeek NrX explores the possibility.

After all, the fewer redheads, the more desirable this color will become, if the law of supply and demand is to be believed.

And finally, curtesy of Kevin MD, do moose contribute to global warming?

Norway is concerned that its national animal, the moose, is harming the climate by emitting an estimated 2,100 kilos of carbon dioxide a year through its belching and farting.

I’d also like to extend a warm welcome to my friend and colleague, Bill Price, who posted to JNJ BTW for the first time today. Welcome aboard!

    Good point — Don’t think anyone has looked at that…

    Perhaps a study is in order. If only we could find some funding…
