A whole week at home is what I have to look forward to this week, so I am taking advantage of every minute while I’m here. Lots of home cooked meals, long runs with the dog, and some entertaining at the house for me. Oh, and lots of work. The projects don’t seem to be slowing down (not a complaint), but I did manage to keep an eye on my social media feeds (including live tweets from the Oscars); here’s what’s caught my eye since last we spoke:
“Our role as health professionals is not just to treat our patients but to sound the alarm and advocate for change.”
Time once again for Articles of Note–what’s new in the peer-reviewed literature that has captured my attention. And let me tell you something: there’s a lot to go through here. Some fantastic articles, a few of which are free full-text. You’re definitely going to want to spend some time on this list, because there’s much to recommend (and so my stack of to reads grows even larger).

After a great week in Germany, it’s nice to be home, if only for a minute. I head to FLETC tomorrow, though thankfully just overnight. I confess I have been a bit remiss in staying current with my social media sites, but I did manage to take a peak or two since I’ve gotten back. Here’s what’s caught my eye since last we spoke:

I loved this TED talk–conversation really is an art. A quote I love so much: “”Most of us don’t listen with the intent to understand. We listen with the intent to reply.” It’s all so good. Whether it’s teaching, mentoring, interviewing potential team members, or just going about the every day activities of your daily life, there’s much to learn from this brief talk:
I’m on my way to Kaiserslautern, Germany, so posts on FHO could be sporadic this week. My work hours will be unpredictable at best, so let’s play it by ear, shall we? Sitting in the airport always gives me time to peruse my social media sites, so here’s what caught my eye since last we spoke:
You know I always like a good sustainability webinar; Futures Without Violence has one coming up next week that might fit the bill. Navigating Fund Development Strategies During Transition will be offered February 17th from 1-2:30pm ET. Click through for details:

Greetings from Fairbanks, AK, where my phone tells me it is -12F right now. Happily I am typing this from the bed in my hotel room, where it is decidedly warmer, but at some point soon I am going to have to go outside. Most of the weekend was consumed with travel, or prepping for travel, so there wasn’t a lot of free time. Waiting in various airports, though, I did have a chance to catch up on the interwebs. Here’s what caught my eye since last we spoke:
Just a quick note this morning: NSVRC has a new research translation available: Key Findings from Sexual Violence Victimization in a Community Sample of African American Women. I haven’t read it yet, but it will be on the top of my list for my long trip back from Alaska, to be sure.
I’m working on this very issue right now here in the US, so I was very interested in reviewing the UK’s latest recommendations for the collection of forensic specimens from complainants and suspects (PDF), published last week by the Faculty of Forensic and Legal Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians. Additionally, if you go to their Publications page, you’ll find new guidance on labelling, operational procedures, and equipment, plus a new fact sheet for patients about follow-up care and other post-exam information (and not for nothing, but I noticed they are offering copper IUDs as one of their options for EC). Overall, I think there are more similarities than differences in the approaches between the US and the UK. Either way, fascinating and informative (there are a ton of links to follow in the specimen collection doc, for instance), and not just for our UK readers.
The Vera Institute’s Center on Victimization and Safety is hosting a webinar series, End Abuse of People With Disabilities.

How nice to have a week at home before I hit the travel pretty hard. After a lovely (albeit brief) visit with my kid, I am looking at a week of hard core writing and editing before I depart for Fairbanks, AK next weekend. Not much downtime here. But sitting around the airport I had the opportunity to check out my various social media sites; here’s what caught my eye since last we spoke:
