Det är topparna som är farligast

"Ett farligt arbetsmoment försvann i Trappfabriken i Rättvik. Dessutom gick det att spara pengar på uppvärmningen. Det blev resultatet efter en insats från arbetsmiljöforskare."

Intensiv mobilanvändning ger sömnsvårigheter hos unga

http://www.sahlgrenska.gu.se/aktuellt/n ... cid1069245

"Unga höganvändare av mobil och dator löper större risk att drabbas av sömnsvårigheter, stress och psykisk ohälsa. Det visar en avhandling vid Sahlgrenska akademin.
–En slutsats är att det förebyggande folkhälsoarbetet även bör ge råd för hälsosam teknikanvändning, säger forskaren Sara Thomée."

SaferProducts.gov: A New World for Consumers, Businesses, and Researchers

http://newsbreaks.infotoday.com/NewsBre ... 1_*1_*1_*1

http://saferproducts.gov/ "a new government database of consumer product safety complaints and manufacturer responses, has been controversial from its earliest stages. When the database officially launched this month, some businesses and trade associations renewed their calls for closing, postponing, or modifying it. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, in a 2010 letter to the Senate, said the database “will lead to consumer confusion and give rise to lawsuits based on a rumor repeated through the echo chamber of the Internet.” On the other hand, on its website ConsumerReports.org called SaferProducts.gov “a major milestone that will empower consumers not only to learn about the safety complaints on the products they own, but to file their own complaints to warn other consumers."

Skiftarbete kan främja livspusslet

Skiftarbete kan främja livspusslet

http://www.arbetsmiljoforskning.se/tr%C ... ivspusslet

"Oregelbundna arbetstider har ingen hälsosam klang. Men när doktorand Madelaine Agosti ställde frågan ”Hur får du ihop livspusslet” till kvinnor inom äldreomsorgen fick hon det oväntade svaret att själva skiftarbetstiderna sågs som en resurs för att balansera livets olika delar.

– Majoriteten såg många fördelar med kvälls- och nattarbete, medan tidigare studier främst visat på nackdelarna, säger Madelaine Agosti. Så jag ändrade fokus på forskningen till vilka fördelarna är, och vad de beror på."

Your Complete Guide to a Healthy Back - Back issues are easier to resolve than you may

http://health.msn.com/healthy-living/ar ... _107893606

"The back is literally your body's support system, made up of more than 30 bones and hundreds of nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. But all those moving parts mean it's vulnerable to problems, too."

The Electronic Brain? Your Mind Vs. a Computer

http://bigthink.com/ideas/41905?utm_sou ... nk+Main%29

"In a 2011 interview, physicist Stephen Hawking declared, "I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail." Of course, the brain is not a computer in the literal sense of the word, but the brain-as-computer metaphor is a powerful one. Long before the invention of the PC, people used the word "switchboard" to express the same meaning. And the computational framework is still employed by some contemporary cognitive scientists. "

Why User Experience Is Critical To Customer Relationships

With the explosion of social media and smart devices, customers are becoming incredibly sophisticated, elusive, and empowered. As a result, the dynamics that govern the relationship between brands and customers is evolving."
