Welcome to another edition of Weekend Reading!

Moms, grandmothers, and aunts are often credited with using well-known catchy, or maybe not so catchy, phrases to teach children values and life lessons. You likely have heard “Don’t judge a book by its cover” or “If your friends jumped off a cliff, would you do it, too? And there is the familiar “Don’t cry over spilled milk” which has its own national day of celebration each February!

“Always wear clean underwear in case you are in an accident” is another well-known phrase. Children often take this saying literally and will religiously change their underwear daily. With age, they come to understand that this saying is a proverb – a saying with different meanings than the literal of the individual words put together. For example, a common interpretation of the “clean underwear” proverb is that we should do the right thing, even when no one else can see it. Another interpretation is that we need to be preprepared for the unexpected. Of course, the literal interpretation of the proverb remains valid and underwear should always be changed daily for hygiene reasons!

This Weekend Reading Series begins with News Briefs, with some of the latest healthcare stories on hospital quality, abortion, and Covid-19. Next, check out Proverbs of Truth offering news on avoiding wasteful healthcare spending, the effect of unconscious bias, the value of rest and more! Do not miss Risky Business, with articles on personal health risk as well as business practices that can negatively impact individuals’ health. Last, but not least, check out Food for Thought and my personal favorite, The High-Octane Coffee Fueling Ukraine’s Front-Line Forces!
