If you're a die-hard Gmail fan like me, these tips will help you if you didn't already know about them. My favorite is the "undo send" feature that you can set up with a time frame - allows you to unsend something within 30 seconds for those moments when you notice the glaring typo AFTER hitting the send key!

"Yet the promise of libraries is in peril because school libraries are in crisis; a threat to one type of library is a threat to all libraries. School libraries across the country are at a critical point. On one hand, budget and testing pressures have led to decisions to eliminate or de-professionalize school libraries. On the other hand, the increased emphasis on college and career readiness and the integration of technology have opened an unprecedented door to school librarian leadership."

I've find this tool via @Robin Good, it is very powerful.

It is a sort of Skype but you can have channels and you can search in simply way .


Channels created has the integration with the services like Twitter, Dropbox, Google Drive and more.

Slack seems to be one of the best solution for online collaboration with less mail less kilometers Skype chat and always in sync 


I started using this tool with my team and seems they like it a lot! 

Let me know if you start to use this tool and if you like it!

Healing Damaged Hearts With Stem Cell Implants Gets New Technique

Healing Damaged Hearts With Stem Cell Implants Gets New Technique | Mount Library | Scoop.it

We’re much better at saving the lives of those who suffer a heart attack these days. Sadly, many people survive a heart attack only to later succumb to heart failure from the damage it caused. Modern methods help heal the heart somewhat after a heart attack, but cardiologists think stem cell therapy might one day offer a far superior alternative.
Stem cells aren’t just good for growing new organs, they can also heal old or damaged ones from the inside. Thousands of patients whose hearts were damaged in a heart attack have undergone some form of stem cell therapy worldwide, and the results are promising. But there’s a problem. Once in the heart, the cells don’t tend to stay put.
Dr. W. Robert Taylor, professor of medicine at Emory and Georgia Tech and director of Emory’s cardiology division, recently co-authored a paper on a new technique that may significantly increase the efficacy of stem cell therapy in the heart.

Post one same video on youtube and put it on  http://www.africatube.net/ and return ater five hours and compare the viewers rate and decide for yourself. Create your very own group or forum and control who watch it and invite everyone to watch the video. Above all, post video in English or in any language and viewers can watch video description in their own language. Try it and let us know your experience.

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, together with researchers at the Polish Wroclaw University of Technology, have made a discovery that may lead to the curing of diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (the so called mad cow disease) through photo therapy.
The researchers discovered that it is possible to distinguish aggregations of the proteins, believed to cause the diseases, from the the well-functioning proteins in the body by using multi-photon laser technique.

Genetic Engineering Enables Human Immunity to Take on Cancer, Revolutionary Therapy

Genetic Engineering Enables Human Immunity to Take on Cancer, Revolutionary Therapy | Mount Library | Scoop.it

Developments in genetic engineering make it possible to 're-programme' the human immune system so that T cells - white blood cells that normally fight viruses - recognize and kill cancer cells. This approach, which directly harnesses the potency of the immune system, holds the prospect of a powerful new weapon in the fight against cancer.

Ronald 's curator insight, November 18, 2013 1:16 PM

This is the future of research in the medical field. I feel as if this is the job of a biological engineer, however, the splicing of DNA and the "reprogramming" mentioned may involve help from chemists that are contibuting to the project. I think that if this research is pursued by doctors and lab scientists, I will be able to give resolutions to cancer patients when I become a pediatrician. I hope that I will get a chance to contribute while I am attending the Univertsity of Washington, whose cancer facility, as well as the Fred Huchinson Cancer Research Center, is one of the best in the nation. I have relatives who have suffered from cancer, so I know the pain and suffering that patients have to endure. The sooner this problem is adressed, the better. In 2007, cancer took the lives of 8 million people. This number is only increasing as time goes by. WIth this newly found research, perhaps the world can be saved from this terrible disaster.
