Warmilu in Pre-Clinical Trials

warmilu:

Warmilu has some great news!  Our Incublanket was able to successfully regulate the temperature of an infant in India during our pre-clinical trials!  This puts us one big step closer to being able to keep infants warm and save lives.

Warmilu hopes to help get that number to 0 with our technology!
unicefusa:

Today, UNICEF announced that the worldwide child mortality rate has dropped 41% since 1990! But this means there are still 19,000 children dying every day from preventable causes. We believe it should be ZERO.
Reblog this if you believe, too.

How do young women really feel about working moms?

I came across a great article from ABC News about how young women really feel about working moms.  This article is interesting to me for a number of reasons but mostly because I hope to be a mom one day and there is a very good chance I will be a working mom.

I don’t work with any working moms.  Of all of the people in my group, there are two with kids.  When I include the expanded group the number goes to three and they are all men.  I don’t have the experiences discussed in the article such as covering for them when the kids are sick but I may have that one day when my own kids are sick.

It puts me in a tough spot sometimes because I want to work and I want to have kids but I want to be a stay at home mom.  Is it wrong to want to want to be a stay at home mom after spending so much on college and having so many goals and hopes and dreams in this modern time when more women are going to work and men are staying home?  I don’t actually think so.  But it’s definitely something to think about as I grow further into the post college “real world” life and more serious into a relationship that may include kids in the future.

First real post!

The first real, written blog post can be a little daunting. What do I say? I have blogged before and those posts were easy to write so why is this one more difficult? It’s hard because it is a beginning, and, like most beginnings, I don’t know what will come of this.

I guess I’ll start out by saying I am an engineer.
