November 1st is National Brush Day (NBD). This ad campaign was first rolled out in August of 2012 and was designed to give parents ideas on how to get their kids to brush their teeth for two minutes, twice a day.

Your files are safe and will be returned to you after you pay us ransom.”
Fortuitously, UVDL had recently purchased a cyber insurance policy from CFC Underwriting, a U.K. company that specializes in cyber incident response, recovery and liability. CFC’s team took over as soon as Thacker discovered the attack. It negotiated with the hackers, covered the ransom fee and helped—with the assistance of the lab’s IT company—get the company back up and running in a week and a half.
“It was certainly the most mentally challenging crisis we’ve faced, like the stress of nine months of the pandemic crammed into eight days. All financial and case data was encrypted,…
Monday is the deadline for healthcare workers in New York State to get at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. With just 84% of New York hospital workers vaccinated as of September 22, tens of thousands of unvaccinated workers could lose their jobs and healthcare organizations may face critical staff shortages.
While staff in New York hospitals, nursing homes, and home health agencies must now be vaccinated in order to do their jobs, there’s no mention in the emergency order of a key group of providers: dentists.
