William Erwin “Will” Eisner (March 6, 1917 – January 3, 2005) was an American comics writer, artist and entrepreneur. He is considered one of the most important contributors to the development of the medium and is known for the cartooning studio he founded; for his highly influential series The Spirit; for his use of comics as an instructional medium; for his leading role in establishing the graphic novel as a form of literature with his book A Contract with God and Other Tenement Stories; and for his educational work about the medium as exemplified by his book Comics and Sequential Art.
The comics community paid tribute to Eisner by creating the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, more commonly known as “the Eisners”, to recognize achievements each year in the comics medium. Eisner enthusiastically participated in the awards ceremony, congratulating each recipient. In 1987, with Carl Barks and Jack Kirby, he was one of the three inaugural inductees of the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.

In the every-cloud-has-a-silver-lining department, it seems that the current economic downturn is actually helping to ease America’s nursing shortage. Today’s Wall Street Journal reports that many nurses who had given up the field are returning to work.

Some of these nurses are seeking income to compensate for the wages of a spouse who lost a job.
I’ve only recently heard of the device called the Stress Eraser (StressEraser), which claims to help alter a person’s breathing in order to reduce stress.
