"Why we should all hack medicine" | Lina Colucci | TEDxBrussels - YouTube | 12/08/14

Published on Dec 8, 2014

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Why we should all hack medicine

From giving birth, to running for a bus, from learning to dancing - if you haven't drunk enough water your body and brain will protest. Lina Colucci is a Doctoral researcher at MIT, she's working on the design, development, and deployment of a portable device that will measure people's hydration levels. Finding out whether we've got enough water on board using a simple and non-invasive technology would go a long way towards saving lives and improving health outcomes all over the world.

Her area is health sciences and technology - a field that integrates an intimidating range of different disciplines. In effect you've got to be outstanding in bio-medical engineering, mechanical engineering, medicine, design, and bio-mechanics in order to get to where Lina is now. She spent a year working on tissue engineering in an orthopaedic bio-engineering lab and before that was working in India for four months doing research about the effects of internal migration on poverty in urban slums. While in Sweden she did research into touch experiences and how people associate the texture of a material with its properties and performance.

In between all this she found time to intern at Nike, using some inventive video analysis techniques to find out how men and women land differently when running - oh, and in her spare time there she developed a social media platform for them. Her time at Nike helped refine a long-cherished project; the redesign of the ballet pointe shoe. Colucci worked with folks from IDEO and Nike to come up with the DANZA shoe - the first update to the pointe shoe in 200 years. Of course she's a dancer and musician as well, working with the Harvard Ballet Company and the New England Conservatory. In essence, Lina has a broad range of accomplishments we thought TEDx Brussels would be incomplete without her.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

....the project that I consult with in Montana (fmbhp.org) is planning one of these M.I.T. Hacking Medicine Events in March 2015.  Check it out at this website -- http://hackingruralmedicine.org/.  See you in Montana in late March

"Three quarters of whites don’t have any non-white friends" | Washington Post | 11/27/14

"Three quarters of whites don’t have any non-white friends" | Washington Post | 11/27/14 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it
Data show that for most white Americans, none of their best friends are black.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

....my friend Charles Cinque Fulwood  offered these insights - "Friendships will not change the systemic drivers of inequality and institutional racism, but these data also confirm a majority population that willfully segregates based on "race." Consequently, a majority public opinion that would support policies which could change the systemic drivers will remain, at best, elusive. (It might be key here to recall that at the time of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, 57% of public 'opinion thought desegregation was moving 'too fast.')" ‪#‎heritage‬

"An Open Letter of Apology to the United States of America" | Huff Post Media | 11/25/14 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it

The media was wrong, and the White House was right. Still, many of us in the media won't admit it. Therefore, I'd like to apologize to you. We should probably make a better effort to understand policy, before we attempt to comment on it. And we should probably also admit, once and for all, that the President was born in America. But don't hold your breath.

.....As my grade school teacher would say, Fox News, you have to write 1,000 apologies for your many transgressions.

"Native America before European Colonization" | Thomas Native History | 11/26/14

Published on Apr 8, 2013: Upon the arrival of Columbus in 1492 in the Carabean Islands, unknown to Columbus (and majority of the Eastern Hemisphere), he landed on Islands located in  the middle of two huge continents now known has North America and South America that was teaming with huge Civilizations (that rivaled any in the world at that time) and thousands of smaller Nations and Tribes. With recent estimations, the population may have been over 100 million people that spanned from Alaska and Green Land, all the to the tip of southern South America.

Geminid Fireball over Mount Balang
Image Credit: Alvin Wu

Explanation: This was a sky to remember. While viewing the Geminids meteor shower a few days ago, a bright fireball was captured over Mt. Balang, China with particularly picturesque surroundings. In the foreground, a sea of light clouds slowly floated between dark mountain peaks. In the background, the constellation of Orion shone brightly, with the familiar three stars of Orion's belt visible near the image top right. Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, is visible near the image center. The bright fireball flashed for only a fraction of second on the lower right. The source of the fireball was a pebble that intersected the protective atmosphere of Earth, originally expelled by the Sun-orbiting asteroid-like object 3200 Phaethon.

St. Louis police officers condemned the NFL's Rams today, calling their pre-game display of the "hands up don't shoot" gesture to be "tasteless, offensive and inflammatory."
