Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers:  The Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers—a force “for the good of all beings”—is a group of matriarchs who are spiritual leaders from native communities around the world. Coming from what they call “the four directions”—North and South America, Africa, and Asia—they work to educate others about indigenous ways of life, sacred stories, and values. Most importantly for them, they pray for healing the Earth and the reconciliation of its people.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

Some Powerful Grandmothers in this Group!

Smartphone-based device could provide rapid, low-cost molecular tumor diagnosis | KurzweilAI | 04/15/15

Smartphone-based device could provide rapid, low-cost molecular tumor diagnosis | KurzweilAI | 04/15/15 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it
A smartphone-based device developed by Harvard Medical School investigators at Massachusetts General Hospital could bring rapid, accurate molecular diagnosis of cancer and other diseases to locations lacking the latest medical technology.

The device uses technology for making holograms to collect detailed microscopic images for digital analysis of the molecular composition of cells and tissues.

“The global burden of cancer, limited access to prompt pathology services in many regions, and emerging cell profiling technologies increase the need for low-cost, portable and rapid diagnostic approaches that can be delivered at the point of care,” said Cesar Castro, HMS instructor in medicine at Mass General and co-lead author of a report in PNAS Early Edition.

“The emerging genomic and biological data for various cancers, which can be essential to choosing the most appropriate therapy, supports the need for molecular profiling strategies that are more accessible to providers, clinical investigators and patients.
