Look back at historic pictures for National Nurses's Day.
May 6th marks National Nurses Day, but there are countless reasons why we should appreciate them every day. Without the bravery and unwavering commitment of nurses who provide patients with incredible care and support, modern hospitals would cease to function. Notable nurses throughout history, such as Dorothea Dix, Florence Nightingale, and Clara Barton were the first to establish the field, and nurses around the world helped make incredible strides throughout the 20th century. Look back on these photos of nurses in action through the years as they paved the way for those who continue to make the world a better place today.
Rusty Shackleford: Our infrastructure is in dire need of repair. From bridges, to tunnels and highways, everything is falling apart. On the IT side, they are still using COBOL programming to run vital systems. COBOL is an ancient program from the 70's. There has been no upgrading of software or hardware. Here in NYC this infrastructure emergency has been replaced by building bike lanes and pedestrian plazas. Computer hardware and software has not been upgraded to provide "transportation alternatives" to the transplants and the speaker of the city council who wants to break the car culture in NYC, among other things.
