Microsoft has unveiled a new online tool, developed by Emory University, to help you decide whether your flu-like symptoms warrant a trip to the doctor's office. This is a major issue for many people, as doctors' visits can be frustrating circuses of waiting rooms, vague advice, and traveling from point A to point B when you feel sick and run-down.

"What would you do if you knew that every good thing in your life depended on your getting enough rest? Because it does." - Martha Beck, "Steering by Starlight" Last winter I was sick pretty much from December to April, felled by one cold/flu brew after another. I'm still not exactly sure why--I usually escape with two colds a year. But I was a) Nursing a bruised heart and b) Gettin ...

So why not look at the question of whether it ought to be mandatory for them to receive swine flu vaccinations using a military metaphor? There's been a lot of argument about whether hospital workers should be forced to get vaccinated before they continue to work with the public this flu season - ...

An image of the H1N1 virus. Knowledge is power... The first rule in war: "know your enemy." At this moment the world is facing invasion from a microscopic but deadly beast.
