American Heart Association says Blood Pressure Monitoring may one day be easy as taking a Video Selfie

 

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Blood pressure monitoring might one day become as easy as taking a video selfie, according to new research in Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging, an American Heart Association journal.

Transdermal optical imaging measures blood pressure by detecting blood flow changes in smartphone-captured facial videos.

Screen grab from app: What can you measure in 30 seconds... using just your phone? Blood pressure, vascular capacity, cardiac workload, demographis, CVD risk, heart attack risk, stroke risk, BMI, face skin age and vascular age, stress index, breathing, and heart rate. (Kang Lee)

Dodging the Roadkill: Why We Crash

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Anybody who has ever crashed on a motorcycle is lucky to have “lived to tell the tale.”   The one thing I’ve learned about laying it down is the questions about “what happened” never go away.  

“But I’m a good rider” we say.  “I wasn’t doing anything stupid” we say.  The reality is just that “shit” happens.  Both times I’ve laid a bike down, it was “pilot error.”  I simply was trying to do too much and lost control.  Bottom line. 

If you’ve ever been hit by another vehicle, or a deer, or simply something in the road, you have a clear cut explanation for your accident.  Most of the time, there are questions.  I second guessed myself for weeks about it.

NASA to use Memex program to help Scientists with Deep Web Searches

 

Written by Elizabeth Landau
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – When you do a simple Web search on a topic, the results that pop up aren’t the whole story. The Internet contains a vast trove of information — sometimes called the “Deep Web” — that isn’t indexed by search engines: information that would be useful for tracking criminals, terrorist activities, sex trafficking and the spread of diseases.

Scientists could also use it to search for images and data from spacecraft.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has been developing tools as part of its Memex program that access and catalog this mysterious online world.

What you see when you do a basic Web search is only the tip of the iceberg. Most of the information is buried in the "Deep Web." JPL is collaborating on a DARPA initiative called Memex, which explores the connections between bits of information hidden in this vast ocean of content. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
