    National Women's Week
    Graphic source:https://www.womenshealth.gov/resources/images/nwhw/nwhw_logo.png

    "National Women's Health Week is an observance led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health. The goal is to empower women to make their health a priority. National Women's Health Week also serves as a time to help women understand what it means to be well.

    What does it mean to be a well woman?
    It's a state of mind. It's being as healthy as you can be. And, most importantly, it's about taking steps to improve your physical and mental health:

    • Visit a health care professional to receive regular checkups and preventive screenings.
    • Get active.
    • Eat healthy.
    • Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
    • Avoid unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, texting while driving, and not wearing a seatbelt or bicycle helmet."

    2018 E-mails, Betty C. Jung
    Welcome back to a look at my E-mail statistics! Here is another way of looking at the total of E-mails I have to deal with on a daily basis.

    For 2018, I only got about 218 E-mails a day. This is down from a high of 2014's 336/day! The percentage of spam E-mails is now down to 16%, from a high of 50% in 2014! Over the years I have discovered that with a spam filter in place I can just delete everything that ends up in the spam inbox. So cathartic when I press "delete." One can only imagine how much paper would be wasted if all this was snail mail.

  • February 13, 2019 - Annual E-mail Statistics, Part 2

    2018 E-mails, Betty C. Jung
    Welcome to a look at my E-mail statistics! This time I was actually able to do a 7-year trend analysis!

    Here is a line chart of the total number of E-mails I got on an annual basis. The good news is I am getting less spam these days, and have actually got less E-mails in 2018 than I did in the previous 6 years!

  • February 12, 2019 - Annual E-mail Statistics, Part 1

    2018 E-mails, Betty C. Jung
    Welcome to a look at my E-mail statistics! Since 2012, I have been diligent about keeping track of how many E-mails I get on a daily basis.

    I started doing this because I tell people that I am constantly inundated with E-mails. I would say that I get hundreds. And, then people would say that nobody gets hundreds.

    So, like the epidemiologist that I am (among other things), I decided that I will track the number of E-mails I get and then analyze the results.

    Here is a bar chart of the total number of E-mails I got in 2018, per month. The monthly totals are categorized as either regular E-mail and Spam. For 2018, I got 79,743 E-mails! Yes, indeed, I do get hundreds of E-mails a day! However, I am glad to report that this total is 8,933 less than year!
