NEW YORK: India-born Padmasree Warrior, one of Silicon Valley's high-profile female executives, has stepped down from her post of Chief Technology Officer at global IT giant Cisco after a significant restructuring of top management under incoming CEO Chuck Robbins. Warrior, named last month by Forbes among the world's 100 most powerful women, will move into a strategic advisor role "effective immediately" and will stay on in this new role "through the transition" until September, Cisco said.
Tough day at work? A lot of how we're feeling is manifested in the way we sit, breathe, and position our bodies.

Doctors must obtain the consent of patients or their families before deciding to turn off or withhold life-preserving treatments, Canada’s largest medical regulator says in a draft new policy that largely reshapes how end-of-life care is decided.

LONDON — The real War Horse has been revealed as a thoroughbred named Warrior, who became known to soldiers as “the horse the Germans could not kill.”

The incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association says the time may have come for the powerful doctors’ group to revisit its stance on euthanasia.
Dr. Louis Hugo Francescutti says more doctors appear ready to have the same frank conversation many Canadians are being forced to have, as baby boomers watch their parents’ end-of-life struggles, and consider their own future.
The organization officially opposes euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide in a policy that has not been updated since 2007.
