Laser-powered 'needle' promises pain-free injections

Laser-powered 'needle' promises pain-free injections | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
From annual flu shots to childhood immunizations, needle injections are among the least popular staples of medical care. Though various techniques have been developed in hopes of taking the "ouch" out of injections, hypodermic needles are still the first choice for ease-of-use, precision, and control.

 

A new laser-based system, however, that blasts microscopic jets of drugs into the skin could soon make getting a shot as painless as being hit with a puff of air. The system uses an erbium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet, or Er:YAG, laser to propel a tiny, precise stream of medicine with just the right amount of force.

Treating Broken Bone Fractures in a survival situation

Treating Broken Bone Fractures in a survival situation | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
There are basically two types of bone fractures: open and closed. With an open (or compound) fracture, the bone protrudes through the skin and complicates the actual fracture with an open wound. You should splint the injured area and continually monitor blood flow past the injury and only reposition the break if there is no blood flow. The closed fracture has no open wounds. Follow the guidelines for immobilization and splint the fracture. http://wildernessarena.com/skills/first-aid-health-and-first-aid/treating-broken-bones

Lighting a fire for survival

Lighting a fire for survival | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Always light your fire from the upwind side. Make sure you lay the tinder, kindling, and fuel so that your fire will burn as long as you need it. Igniters provide the initial heat required to start the tinder burning. They fall into two categories: modern methods and primitive methods. http://wildernessarena.com/food-water-shelter/firecraft/lighting-a-fire

Amazing hole-in-one golf shot - ball teed off into sand trap and then mysteriously spits back out into the hole

Amazing hole-in-one golf shot - ball teed off into sand trap and then mysteriously spits back out into the hole | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Hole-in-one golf shots are always entertaining but this one is particularly stunning. Watch as Australian golfer Richard Green tees off on the par-four 15th hole and shanks it right into a sand bunker before turning away in disgust. The ball disappears into the bunker and then as if by magic, spits right back out (at a near right angle) and rolls into the hole. http://geekslop.com/2015/amazing-hole-in-one-golf-shot-into-sand-bunker-trap

The Doomsday Clock - a grim reminder that the human race not immortal | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Called the Doomsday Clock, it hangs on a wall in the University of Chicago. In over 65 years, the time has only changed twenty-one times. Created in 1947, during the dawn of the atomic age, the universally-recognized clock represents the countdown to human extinction. The closer they set the clock to midnight, the closer the scientists believe the world is to global disaster. http://geekslop.com/2015/university-of-chicago-doomsday-clocka-grim-reminder-we-are-not-immortal

Are sunspots killing us? New research hints sunspots at birth shorten overall lifespan

Are sunspots killing us? New research hints sunspots at birth shorten overall lifespan | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Research out of Norway drew a surprising conclusion this week – sunspots appear to shorten a person’s lifespan by over half a decade. Researchers studied more than 9,062 Norwegian births from 1676 to 1878 and using the occurrence of sunspots, a barometer of sorts for solar activity, found that lifespans were shorter by slightly over five years for persons born during years of high solar activity. http://geekslop.com/2015/sunspots-killing-us-new-research-hints-sunspots-birth-shorten-overall-lifespan

The controversial works of Charlie Hebdo offend more than just Muslims

The controversial works of Charlie Hebdo offend more than just Muslims | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
When masked gunmen stormed the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, they were heard to shout “Allahu Akbar” or “God is Great” in Arabic. That the attackers were Muslim terrorists is without question. So what had Charlie Hebdo published to upset followers of Islam? Turns out they have a long history of satirical (and vulgar) “comedy” aimed at religion – Islam in particular. Here’s a sample along with explanations of what the cartoons depict. http://geekslop.com/2015/controversial-works-of-charlie-hebdo-offend-more-than-just-followers-of-islam

After three masked gunmen killed 12 in the offices of left-wing magazine Charlie Hebdo, the French quickly took to the streets showing the world they are not afraid. Marching under the banner of “Je Suis Charlie” or “I am Charlie”, demonstrators in France, England, Spain, Germany, and Italy hit the streets creating a somber but exciting display of solidarity. Their message was clear – “We will not change our lifestyles or beliefs under threat of terrorists.” http://geekslop.com/2015/france-other-nations-take-to-street-in-support-of-charlie-hebdo-jesuischarlie-iamcharlie

US-CERT releases details on SMB worm tool likely used in Sony attack- complete breakdown

US-CERT releases details on SMB worm tool likely used in Sony attack- complete breakdown | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
US-CERT released alert TA14-353A today detailing a “SMB Worm Tool” recently used by cyber threat actors against a “major entertainment company”. Given the timing of the US formal accusations against North Korea, this certainly hints that the malware toolset being referenced is the one used by the Guardians of Peace (GOP) in the recent Sony Entertainment Pictures attack and data breach. Given my initial review of the malware’s characteristics – now I’m a little more impressed. http://geekslop.com/2014/details-on-smb-worm-tool-likely-used-in-sony-attack-complete-breakdown

Hands on installation with North Korea's official Red Star 3.0 Server operating system | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Red Star OS, North Korea’s official Red Hat-based Linux distro, is very easy to install in a VM. Given recent revelations of its many security holes, it’s an excellent opportunity to install the operating system in a local VM and then pound it for vulnerability assessment. At the very least, this will let you derive a baseline vulnerability footprint irrespective of any firewalls or security protection devices that a real North Korean target may be running. http://geekslop.com/2015/installing-north-koreas-official-red-star-3-0-server-operating-system
