Kmart Aired First Holiday Ad A Whopping 106 Days Before Christmas

Kmart Aired First Holiday Ad A Whopping 106 Days Before Christmas | world news | Scoop.it
Too soon!
Claire Williams's insight:

I know im not the only one that agrees with "Business Insider" when I say, "christmas already?" In this artical they focus on how soon Kmart relased their first christmas commercial 106 days before Christmas. Eventhough is ad is more focused on one store, I found it interesting becuse it has always bothered me that Christmas is displayed before Holloween in most stores. So my basic question is, "can it be shoved down our throwt anymore?"

Laboratories around the country are experimenting with three-dimensional printing technology, including the printing of human body parts and internal organs. Scientists are currently able to print flat objects like skin, but printing tubular or hollow organs like a bladder or a lung would require internal scaffolding.

 

The process can use stem cells from the patient as printing material for the 3D printer, but scientists still need to figure out how to print small blood vessels. RT's Sam Sacks has more on the melding of modern medicine and 3D printing.


Via Annie Theunissen
Claire Williams's insight:

This artical shows the new up an coming medical phanominon, printing organs. When they sy that they are printing organs that is just what they mean they take live tissue and put it into a modfied printer and poof it prints an organ. the printer is modified to prting in 3D and use live tissue as ink. After the organ is printed they can use the organ as a transpant organ. The findings are still experimental but further studies are being done

Claire Williams's insight:

   This artical from pbw,has an interesting twist on how they display enviormental problems. This artical touches opun how we dispose of the waste created by livestock that we breed for consuption. It manly focuses how the waste is polluting the water in streams.

    I found this artical interesting because it allows you to explore the other side enviormental problems from a diffrent prospectives.
