Have there been any studies to modify the domestic refrigerator into part fridge and part air conditioning unit?

Not sure if it has been studied. What we’re pretty certain about is that it probably won’t work. Refrigerators work by transferring heat from the inside of the fridge to the outside. As thermodynamics dictate, if you left the fridge door open this would basically end up making your room hotter unless you stayed right in front of the fridge. The idea might work if the fridge transferred the heat outside the room. The problem is that food has to be kept at around 4–5 oC, rooms at a nice 22–25oC, it would be a tough engineering challenge to maintain both temperatures.

Age Comes for Us All

The prospect of ageing can be terrifying, especially when it is our loved ones who are ageing before our eyes. How do we come to terms with the emotional difficulty of seeing our parents age (and in some unfortunate cases, deteriorate due to diseases), and how to broach sensitive yet crucial subjects such as their end-of-life preferences, euthanasia, and retirement preferences?
