Medical Profession – Service to mankind or just a job?

What was once a noble profession now seems like a high-risk job.

Numerous publicized instances of violence against health professionals have brought alive a fundamental question – has healthcare changed from being a service-oriented profession to a business model?

Well, there are two sides to a coin. 

Give me some Sunshine

The words of Charles Dickens where he writes about the bright sun not only bringing light, but also new life, hope and freshness certainly ring true, especially to someone who has been Vitamin D deficient for a while…

If you are used to a lifestyle of relative comfort, driving down, windows rolled up, to your air-conditioned workplace, leaving late, if your weekend recreation is limited to visiting theatres, malls and other indoor entertainment, and on top of that you deprive yourself of the right kind of food, you are a likely candidate for severe Vitamin D deficiency.

Indian scientists working on a wearable smart ring that can turn your palm into a gesture interface to control multiple devices.

The remote will be obsolete shortly. We already see a number of day to day gadgets that run on Touchless Technology. All one has to do is move ones hands to operate a television or clap to put the lights off.

While there exist a number of wearable gesture interfaces today that have made things simpler, the scope seems to be limitless.

What comes as a learning is that the gesture based technologies which were meant to ease the experience are too tiring on prolonged use. Secondly, the existing devices mix  both wearable tech and touch-less technology and making it more complex for users.

A group of young entrepreneurs is working on developing a device they call wearfin to tackle these issues.

The expected ourcome is a stylish ring that will be worn on the thumb making it simple to operate.
