Q&A: Predicting the Future by Smelling | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

We all know certain smells can bring memories back to life. A christmas tree, your grandma’s baking scents or your first brand of deodorant can take your mind straight back to other times. But these smells can also help us to predict the future, science shows. Marijn van Wingerden has found the part of the brain that makes this possible.

Un million de révolutions tranquilles : comment les citoyens changent le monde

Un million de révolutions tranquilles : comment les citoyens changent le monde | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

Ils sortent de la faim et de la pauvreté des centaines de milliers de personnes. Ils sauvent des entreprises. Ils construisent des habitats coopératifs, écologiques et solidaires. Ils ouvrent des cliniques gratuites, des microbanques, des épiceries sans but lucratif ou des ateliers de réparations citoyens. Ils reverdissent le désert et régénèrent les écosystèmes. Ils financent des emplois ou des fermes bio. Et partout dans le monde, ils échangent sans argent des biens, des services et des savoirs, redynamisent l’économie locale ou rendent leur village autonome grâce aux énergies renouvelables.

 

Qui sont-ils ? Ce sont tous des citoyen(ne)s ordinaires. Ils vivent dans de petits villages d’Asie, d’Amérique latine ou d’Afrique, ou dans des villes comme New York ou Tokyo. Ils viennent de milieux sociaux très variés, ne se connaissent pas entre eux, ne sont pas célèbres et certains sont illettrés. Mais ensemble, ces hommes et ces femmes ont engagé localement de petites révolutions. Ils sont les pionniers de nouveaux modes de vie, qui sont en train de transformer la planète. Chacun dans leur domaine, ils inventent des solutions que ni les gouvernements ni le secteur privé n’ont su ou voulu mettre en place et qui répondent à la plupart des maux de la planète. Des millions d’autres décident aussi de vivre tout simplement autrement. De vivre mieux. Et pour cela, ils s’affranchissent de l’hyperconsumérisme, réinventent la démocratie locale ou réinventent l’usage de l’argent. Bénédicte Manier [1], journaliste à l’AFP, a parcouru plusieurs pays et observé la réussite de de ces révolutions silencieuses.

The Social Business of Fighting Disease

The Social Business of Fighting Disease | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

Whilst social media tools have primarily been used for commercial ends, there is a growing stream of evidence showing that it has scientific and social benefits as well. Nowhere is this more so than in the tracking and prevention of diseases.

 

For instance Google Flu Trends tracks search queries and applies its trending algorithm to gain an understanding of where flu outbreaks are occuring. A 21 month study by John Hopkins University found that the app was exceptionally good at predicting when hospitals would start to see people coming in with flu symptoms.

 

Primary investigator of the study, Dr. Richard Rothman, said that the results were promising for “eventually developing a standard regional or national early warning system for frontline health care workers.”

 

Social media context

 

It could be argued however that social media is a better method of tracking the spread of infection because it provides you with better context. Back in January the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene reported that tweets and other public ‘status updates’ were a better way of determining the spread of cholera in post-earthquake Haiti than official channels. The research was conducted by scientists at Children’s Hospital Boston and Harvard Medical School and with over 6,000 people having died from the disease in Haiti, it has serious implications in terms of disaster prevention.

 

“When we analyzed news and Twitter feeds from the early days of the epidemic in 2010, we found they could be mined for valuable information on the cholera outbreak that was available up to two weeks ahead of surveillance reports issued by the government health ministry,” said Rumi Chunara, PhD, of the Informatics Program at Children’s Hospital Boston, Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School, and the lead author of the study. “The techniques we employed eventually could be used around the world as an affordable and efficient way to quickly detect the onset of an epidemic and then intervene with such things as vaccines and antibiotics.”

Our review of the Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD, prepared in partnership with DxOMark. In the last of our mini-series examining superzoom lenses for SLRs, we take a look at how Tamron's contender compares to its Sigma and Nikon counterparts that we reviewed recently. This type of all-in-one travel and 'walkaround' lens is enduringly popular, but how does this two-year-old design stand up against its brand-new competitors?

The End Of The Smartphone Era Is Coming

The End Of The Smartphone Era Is Coming | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

You've heard that Google is working on computerized glasses. They're called Google Glass, and developers can already buy them. It turns out Microsoft is working on something similar. It filed some patents on the project. There's a big difference between what Microsoft is working on and Google Glass, though. The most recent word out of Google is that Google Glass isn't going to use "augmented reality" – where data and illustrations overlay the actual world around you.
