    Burma's Health Ministry has admitted that the country needs significantly more midwives. Senior health officials recently said that a mere 10,000 midwives are employed to cover 60,000 villages.

The dais' methods are holistic, conceiving of childbirth not as pathology but continuation of organic life. Dais handle about 50% of the births in India.

  • Break - How UPS Plans To Use Drones To Increase The Speed Of Their Deliveries

    Futurologists have been predicting that drones will eventually replace humans in the world of package delivery for years, but now UPS has unveiled a new system that could see man and robot work together in the name of getting parcels into the right hands. Cool new technology would allow individual drivers to make multiple deliveries simultaneous by employing drones that fly autonomously to their intended destination. While the driver makes traditional deliveries, a self-piloted drone would seamlessly transport goods to other recipients with next to no human input. According to UPS, the use of drones could help speed up rural deliveries and reduce their cost, as drivers would not need to clock more miles to make fewer deliveries when compared to urban centers. In response to concerns tha...

In response to concerns that the drone technology could eventually eliminate the need for human delivery truck drivers, UPS has adopted a wait-and-see approach, claiming that it will not be able to see the big picture until drones are implemented on a larger scale. UPS’s inaugural home delivery tests took place this week in Lithia, Florida, which saw the drone take off from the truck’s roof, deliver the package, and return to the truck – all with minimal babysitting on the part of the driver.

What is RURAL FREE DELIVERY? What does RURAL FREE DELIVERY mean? RURAL FREE DELIVERY meaning - RURAL FREE DELIVERY definition - RURAL FREE DELIVERY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Rural Free Delivery (RFD) is a service which began in the United States in the late 19th century, to deliver mail directly to rural farm families. Prior to RFD, individuals living in more remote homesteads had to pick up mail themselves at sometimes distant post offices or pay private carriers for delivery. The proposal to offer free rural delivery was not universally embraced. Private carriers and local shopkeepers feared a loss of business. The postal service began experiments with Rural Free Delivery as early as 1890. However, it was not until 1893, when Georgia Congressman Thomas E. Watson pushed through legislation, that the practice was mandated.[1] However, universal implementation was slow; RFD was not adopted generally in the United States Post Office until 1902.[2] The rural delivery service uses a network of rural routes traveled by carriers to deliver and pick up mail to and from roadside mailboxes.[3] Until the late 19th century, residents of rural areas had to either travel to a distant post office to pick up their mail, or else pay for delivery by a private carrier. Postmaster General John Wanamaker was ardently in favor of Rural Free Delivery (RFD),[4] as it was originally called, along with many thousands of Americans living in rural communities who wanted to send and receive mail inexpensively. However, the adoption of a nationwide RFD system had many opponents. Some were simply opposed to the cost of the service. Private express carriers thought inexpensive rural mail delivery would eliminate their business, and many town merchants worried the service would reduce farm families' weekly visits to town to obtain goods and merchandise, or that mail order merchants selling through catalogs, such as Sears, Roebuck and Company might present significant competition.[1][5] Much support for the introduction of a nationwide rural mail delivery service came from The National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry, the nation's oldest agricultural organization.[4] Fayette County in east-central Indiana may be the birthplace of Rural Free Delivery. Milton Trusler, a leading farmer in the county, began advocating the idea in 1880; as the president of the Indiana Grange, he spoke to farmers statewide frequently over the following sixteen years.[6] The Post Office Department first experimented with the idea of rural mail delivery on October 1, 1891 to determine the viability of RFD. They began with five routes covering ten miles, 33 years after free delivery in cities had begun. The first routes to receive RFD during its experimental phase were in Jefferson County, West Virginia, near Charles Town, Halltown, and Uvilla.[7] Legislation by U.S. Congressman Thomas E. Watson of Georgia mandated the practice, and RFD finally became an official service in 1896.[1] That year, 82 rural routes were put into operation. A massive undertaking, nationwide RFD service took several years to implement, and remains the "biggest and most expensive endeavor"[8] ever instituted by the U.S. postal service. The service has grown steadily. By 1901, the mileage had increased to over 100,000; the cost was $1,750,321 and over 37,000 carriers were employed. In 1910 the mileage was 993,068; cost $36,915,000; carriers 40,997. In 1913 came the introduction of parcel post delivery, which caused another boom in rural deliveries. Parcel post service allowed the distribution of national newspapers and magazines, and was responsible for millions of dollars of sales in mail-order merchandise to customers in rural areas. In 1930 there were 43,278 rural routes serving about 6,875,321 families—that is about 25,471,735 persons. The cost was $106,338,341.[9] In 1916, the Rural Post "Good" Roads Act authorized federal funds for rural post roads.
