Active Volcano Discovered Under Antarctic Ice Sheet

Active Volcano Discovered Under Antarctic Ice Sheet | world technology | Scoop.it
Earthquakes deep below West Antarctica reveal an active volcano hidden beneath the massive ice sheet. The newly discovered volcano is the youngest in chain of fiery peaks in the Executive Committee Range.

Ben Findlow's insight:

Is that good or bad. I would think bad because if the volcano erupted the sheet of ice would explode. And if someone were to be walking on the sheet of ice they could die. But it might be good if the sheet of ice stops the epution which I think is impossible. But if it could happen it would be cool.

Prisoners return after Filipino typhoon mass escape

Prisoners return after Filipino typhoon mass escape | world technology | Scoop.it
The prisoners say they returned out of fear of living as fugitives from the law

Ben Findlow's insight:

Wow I'm glad there back in prison. If they were still out and about they would be causing trouble. Especially if people are out of their homes alive they could steal important stuff that is not broken. I'm glad they found them and so they could be stuck in there. Plus so other people don't get hurt.

Ben Findlow's insight:

With this new set of technology we will be able to do things that we need to do a lot faster. If we need things to load and move on to other devices (which I think most of us want it to) we would be a lot more happy. With this new invention it is going to be great because if we still have those bulky cables that download on 5 gigibites per second that wouldn't make us happy. With these thin 5mm in diameter cables we can download 100 gigibites per second.

Ben Findlow's insight:

Wow if you live in Moscow you would be a lucky man. If I were to live there I would take the subway everyday. Just to wake up and go to work, but before you get onto the subway you would just have to squat and you are good to go. That would be awesome! If you were to pay like that everyday I would do it.

Marissa Roy's curator insight, November 18, 2013 9:56 AM

This is way cool! In preperation for the upcoming Olympics, commuters in Moscow can do squats in order to recieve a train ticket. What a way to get people moving! I feel that many people will overlook it and just pay the money because they might feel embarrassed, but I think it is a great trade off. It's like going to the gym with an added benefit. I would like to see a system like this in the United States to see how Americans would react.

First American Surgery Transmitted Live Via Google Glass

First American Surgery Transmitted Live Via Google Glass | world technology | Scoop.it

A surgeon at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the first in the United States to consult with a distant colleague using live, point-of-view video from the operating room via Google Glass, a head-mounted computer and camera device.

 

“It’s a privilege to be a part of this project as we explore how this exciting new technology might be incorporated into the everyday care of our patients,” said Dr. Christopher Kaeding, the physician who performed the surgery and director of sports medicine at Ohio State.  “To be honest, once we got into the surgery, I often forgot the device was there. It just seemed very intuitive and fit seamlessly.”

 

Google Glass has a frame similar to traditional glasses, but instead of lenses, there is a small glass block that sits above the right eye.  On that glass is a computer screen that, with a simple voice command, allows users to pull up information as they would on any other computer.  Attached to the front of the device is a camera that offers a point-of-view image and the ability to take both photos and videos while the device is worn.

 

During this procedure at the medical center’s University East facility, Kaeding wore the device as he performed ACL surgery on Paula Kobalka, 47, from Westerville, Ohio, who hurt her knee playing softball.  As he performed her operation at a facility on the east side of Columbus, Google Glass showed his vantage point via the internet to audiences miles away.

 

Across town, one of Kaeding’s Ohio State colleagues, Dr. Robert Magnussen, watched the surgery his office, while on the main campus, several students at The Ohio State University College of Medicine watched on their laptops.

 

“To have the opportunity to be a medical student and share in this technology is really exciting,” said Ryan Blackwell, a second-year medical student who watched the surgery remotely.   “This could have huge implications, not only from the medical education perspective, but because a doctor can use this technology remotely, it could spread patient care all over the world in places that we don’t have it already.”

 

“As an academic medical center, we’re very excited about the opportunities this device could provide for education,” said Dr. Clay Marsh, chief innovation officer at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. “But beyond, that, it could be a game-changer for the doctor during the surgery itself.”

 

Experts have theorized that during surgery doctors could use voice commands to instantly call up x-ray or MRI images of their patient, pathology reports or reference materials.  They could collaborate live and face-to-face with colleagues via the internet, anywhere in the world.

 

“It puts you right there, real time,” said Marsh, who is also the executive director of the Center for Personalized Health Care at Ohio State. “Not only might you be able to call up any kind of information you need or to get the help you need, but it’s the ability to do it immediately that’s so exciting,” he said.  “Now, we just have to start using it. Like many technologies, it needs to be evaluated in different situations to find out where the greatest value is and how it can impact the lives of our patients in a positive way.”

 

Only 1,000 people in the United States have been chosen to test Google Glass as part of Google’s Explorer Program. Dr. Ismail Nabeel, an assistant professor of general internal medicine at Ohio State applied and was chosen. He then partnered with Kaeding to perform this groundbreaking surgery and to help test technology that could change the way we see medicine in the future.
