How to Make Your Medical Records Safer

How to Make Your Medical Records Safer | Alie's Page | Scoop.it

Last month, the Health Insurance and Medical Privacy Act, or HIPAA, made your electronic medical records a lot safer. As welcome as these changes are, we need to go further. It is time for a federal law requiring encryption of any database that contains personally identifying information (PII).

Alison Antonelli's insight:

I think this is extremely important to read this article. Your health records should be kept in a safe place and for your eyes only and your doctors as well. The HIPAA Laws are taken very seriously as they should but everyones health records should be kept private even if they are eacy to access over the internet.

Pumpkin Geography

Pumpkin Geography | Alie's Page | Scoop.it

"After spending a month becoming familiar with the location of the seven continents and the major bodies of water, each student is given a pumpkin to turn into a globe. Students paint the entire surface of the pumpkin blue to represent water. Next, they use pushpins to position and trace the outline of each continent onto their pumpkins. They use actual globes as models and are careful to place the continents in the correct hemisphere. Then, they paint and label each continent a different color. They label the major bodies of water and use white paint to represent the North and South Poles."

This article is a really good example on how beauty is a cultural perception. American pleople have a skewed idea of beauty, those shown above not being in that category. In other countries, these women might be extreamly beautiful, but the American perception doesn't believe the same things.

Brittany Ortiz's curator insight, October 21, 2014 6:48 PM

Very interesting to see how both major countries like Mexico Puerto Rico differ throughout the United States. I'm actually not surprised of the static itself since it would make sense where they would go once in the United States. As Mexico being the closest to the United States its obvious how they would just go to California then scatter through the rest of the United States. As for Puerto Rican's I really didn't know where the majority of them would be in the United States. But very cool to see!

Tori Denney's curator insight, May 27, 2015 12:50 PM

Density, distribution, and scale - Density of a country or place, and distribution of where these clusters occur, has to do with migration, cities, and available work. For Mexican's in the United States, distribution is mostly along the border, coasts, or low paid work opportunities.

The excitement behind 3D printing is easily justifiable; it is astounding to think that with the press of a button, a plastic figurine can be materialized right in front of us. Do I believe that putting such a device in an everyday household with be earth shattering? No. Nonetheless, the concept is fascinating, and I believe it to have much potential.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 16, 2013 1:17 PM

Quoting directly from the article, "Racists took to Twitter to lambaste the pageant for picking an Indian-American."  This got me the thinking about the topic from multiple perspectives.  First of all, the United States is becoming increasingly diverse as the white population's fertility rate is slowing and this is seen as emblematic of that shift.  But does disagreeing with the pageant's evaluation of beauty make all of the critics racists?  Certainly not; although I'm sure their was a strong racist undercurrent to the much of the criticism, the pageant seeks to quantitatively measure and rank beauty.  The idea of beauty is culturally constructed and varies based on the cultural milleu of the individual; there is perhaps nothing more subjective in the world, and the criteria for beauty has changed over time, and certainly various across space as many culture value different attributes.  Why is anyone arguing about the bias in the selection process of Miss America when the process is inherently subjective and based on the cultural preferences of the judges?  Maybe the real question is this: why is anyone evaluating the worth and importance of women in society based on evening gown poise and swimsuit appearance?              

Linda Alexander's comment, September 16, 2013 11:55 PM
I agree with your overall assessment, Seth, but do feel the twitter feed is worthy of further examination. I also noted that this winner, for a change, is advocating for girls in the STEM fields and appears to be quite different from the norm. She looks different, thinks different and acts different. Is that another reason for the unsettling discomfort that sparked the racists remarks? Yes, but sorry, but the world really is changing folks, so deal with it. Anyhow, it's a step in the right direction when beauty is not defined by age-old standards, thinking and behavior. However, at the end of the day, I don't particularly like beauty contests either and didn't watch this one....
