While this Better Health article by Barbara Ficarra, RN focuses on cancer prevention news article, the same tips can be of help with any medical news articles:  Cancer Prevention: How To Sift Through The Headlines

The article, Missed nursing care: View from the hospital bed (Part One), is by  Beatrice J. Kalisch

I like NPR, Elton John, and Leon Russell which made this segment NPR did last week very enjoyable for me:  Elton John And Leon Russell Reunite On 'The Union' 

Elton John and Leon Russell's paths seemed fated to cross: Both grew up at the piano, learning to play as little boys. Both played piano in bars while in their teens, and both started their careers as piano players for hire. But, according to John, there's one important difference.

"He is a better piano player than I am," John says. "As far as gospel and stuff like that, that's why I wanted to make this album. He is my idol."   ……

and this one:  First Listen: Elton John And Leon Russell, 'The Union' which gives you the opportunity to listen to some of the songs on the album.
