A bespoke 3D-printed membrane filled with sensors could be key to saving people from heart failure.One of the creators behind the device, biomedical engineer Igor Efimov of Washington University in St Louis, says it works on similar principles to Google's recently announced "smart" contact lens which uses tiny circuitry to detect glucose levels -- but is simply much better."Because this is implantable, it will allow physicians to monitor vital functions in different organs and intervene when necessary to provide therapy," he explained. "In the case of heart rhythm disorders, it could be used to stimulate cardiac muscle or the brain, or in renal disorders, it would monitor ionic concentrations of calcium, potassium and sodium."Read more: http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2014-02/26/3d-printed-heart-attack

6 Ways to Find Happiness in 2014 Huffington Post The thing here though, is that if you yourself are unhappy with where you live, go to school, work, etc., changing location isn't necessarily going to make you any happier.
“Much has been made recently about one of the stand out trends of the times we live in: Everything is becoming infused with technology. Software is eating the world it is said. Some have claimed that next it might even eat the jobs, which to some degree is almost certainly the case. With only a little bit of irony, Hugh MacLeod humorously noted this week that software may eventually eat all the people. But even that could be a bit closer to the truth than some of us might expect.But the point is this: In the last half-decade alone, most of us would admit the societal and cultural shifts that technology and global digital networks have wrought is nothing short of astounding:Social media is relentlessly chipping away at the power and control that companies and governments have long enjoyed almost exclusively over the rest of the world. Supply chains, talent management (hiring), customer service, product development, and just about every function of business is being transformed by things like 3D printing, social recruiting, customer care communities, crowdsourcing, to only name a few of the more important examples. That’s not even looking at the macro changes (example: Arab Spring), in which digital/social is impacting the fabric of entire nations. In all of these cases, the power and control is shifting to the other side of the network, to what many now call the ‘edge’, where most of us are.”Unfortunately, there remains a constituency that remains stubbornly in the back of the pack when it comes to the large scale changes happening in the world today. Surprisingly, this constituency formerly used to actually lead the technology world. Instead, it is now dragged along by consumer technology companies and their customers. Yes, I am referring to our corporations, to which I’ll add our institutions, including our governments and associated entities.“”
