Boob Truck Raises Awareness Of Breast Feeding

From BuzzFeed –

A lactation activist (lactivist) by the name of Jill Miller drives this vehicle around Pittsburgh to spread the good word on nursing. Jill Miller drives her Milk Truck, near her Pittsburgh home.

Feel Older Now! What?

A Japanese medical supply company sells an Aged Simulation Set. I’m unsure about the value of the kit, but at least you look cool while wearing it. The site describes it as –

The aged simulation set is a teaching material intended to demonstrate the inconveniences felt by the aged due to musculoskeletal, visual and auditory aging. This set is the most suitable for medical practice, nursing and welfare training. Inconveniences to the aged due to the changes in bones, muscles, sight and hearing can be experienced with this simulation set.

If that isn’t your cup of tea, check out some of the other stuff available on their site.
