Employment rose among those in free money experiment, study shows

Posted by in categories: economics, employment, health

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — After getting $500 per month for two years without rules on how to spend it, 125 people in California paid off debt, got full-time jobs and had “statistically significant improvements” in emotional health, according to a study released Wednesday.

The program was the nation’s highest-profile experiment in decades of universal basic income, an idea that was revived as a major part of Andrew Yang’s 2020 campaign for president.

Wearable, All-in-One Health Monitor: New Skin Patch Continuously Tracks Cardiovascular Signals and Biochemical Levels

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry, engineering, health, wearables

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a soft, stretchy skin patch that can be worn on the neck to continuously track blood pressure and heart rate while measuring the wearer’s levels of glucose as well as lactate, alcohol, or caffeine. It is the first wearable device that monitors cardiovascular signals and multiple biochemical levels in the human body at the same time.

“This type of wearable would be very helpful for people with underlying medical conditions to monitor their own health on a regular basis,” said Lu Yin, a nanoengineering Ph.D. student at UC San Diego and co-first author of the study published on February 152021, in Nature Biomedical Engineering. “It would also serve as a great tool for remote patient monitoring, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic when people are minimizing in-person visits to the clinic.”

Such a device could benefit individuals managing high blood pressure and diabetes — individuals who are also at high risk of becoming seriously ill with COVID-19. It could also be used to detect the onset of sepsis, which is characterized by a sudden drop in blood pressure accompanied by a rapid rise in lactate level.

Medical Diagnosis Software With Just A Smart Phone — The Future Is Arriving

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, mobile phones, privacy, robotics/AI, wearables

Monitoring your vital signs is becoming easier and easier these days, critical if you want to keep track of your general health and well being, and incredibly useful if you want to see how a life style, or dietary, change is playing out. In this video I look at two new companies that are utilising mobile phones to measure a whole raft of biometric data, simply and easily, and clinically tested to deliver medical-grade accuracy. And these are just first generation versions, who knows where this will take us, and what we will be able to monitor quickly and easily in the next few years.


Medical Diagnosis Software With Just A Smart PhoneIn the near future, your phone or a wearable of some description, will constantly be able to monitor all your health signs continuously ready to alert you to any worrying signs, and what they can do today is just the beginning of where we are heading.

Posted by in categories: health, sustainability

😃


Planting greenery is often touted as one solution to the threat of air pollution, but which species are the most effective against this major public health hazard? Researchers at the Royal Horticultural Society in the UK set out to answer that question and in the process discovered a “super plant,” Franchet’s cotoneaster, or Cotoneaster franchetii.
