Have you heard about this whole abortion drone thing?
Here’s a story that made me look twice!
Regardless of which side you fall on when it comes to the whole abortion debate, you’ve got to ask yourself what we’ll think of next.
Apparently, there’s a new “abortion drone” making its way to women in Poland who need to end their pregnancies in a hurry.
It’s going to drop abortion pills over Poland. Seriously.
I am not even going to focus on my stance on abortion (which, for the record is basically to each her own, but it’s not for me personally – unless it means life or death for me, because I don’t think it’s fair to my already-born children to take their only mother from them if I can avoid it).
What I am going to say is this: I am happy to see that drones can provide a service that might potentially save lives.
As for the whole abortion part…I’m not sure what to say.

A coalition of reproductive rights group is re-purposing drone technology with a new goal in mind: Expanding women’s access to a safe method of ending an early pregnancy.
The world’s first “abortion drone” is making international headlines for its upcoming flight, which is planned for this weekend. On Saturday, a small drone carrying packages of abortion-inducing medication will be flown from Germany to Poland, where women are subject to some of the strictest abortion laws in the world.
“The Abortion drone will mark the different reality for Polish women to access to safe abortion services compared to other women in Europe,” said a press release announcing the initiative.

Five feng shui tips to improve productivity in your workplace
First, if you are not comfortable in your designated work space and have a disorganized mess piled around you, you are going to start your day on a negative note, and waste your valuable time searching for things.
Keep the things you use all the time close at hand, and have proper storage for those items that you use now and then.
Good lighting and a comfortable chair will help, too. Let coworkers know that this is your work space and that you need to eliminate distractions.
Those interruptions keep you from achieving, which in turn frustrates you, increases your work load, and adds to your stress.
Second, you need to set definite goals. If you know what you want to achieve, you will get there much faster.
Is it power you want? Whatever your motivation is, it is a reminder of why you come to work each day.
Don’t hang negative labels around your neck…nobody is “just” a secretary, or “just” a salesman! Be proud of what you are doing and you will always do the best job possible.
Think about the positives; don’t list the negatives. If you had a cranky customer that you managed to soothe and make the sale, give yourself kudos instead of giving him black marks.
Third on the list of tips is to stop procrastinating. Every time you choose to do the least you possibly can in a day, it leaves you with more than you possibly can do the next day.
Granted, there are times when it is hard to concentrate, or you are tired, achy, and unmotivated. Taking regular breaks will help to ease the tedium, a jolt of caffeine will wake you up, or a cup of herbal tea will soothe you.
Don’t snack on too much. You’ll want to take a nap!
Fourth on the list is to do relieve your stress level. Tips 1, 2, and 3 will help, but sometimes you need more help.
Meditation, deep breathing, and yoga are really good ways to relax the body and clear the mind.
Delegating authority will also ease stress. Let others do some of the routine tasks in order to clear your mind and time for the problems.
Tip number five is simple. The last thing you should do before you go home is to plan the next day’s activities.
It makes it easier for you to start up quickly when you get there in the morning. Prioritize your tasks.
These five feng shui tips to improve productivity in your workplace are going to help you feel better about yourself and your job, ease your stress, and make you glad to be going to work!
