Blood test to diagnose adult depression.

"The first blood test to diagnose major depression in adults has been developed, providing the first objective, scientific diagnosis for depression. The test also predicts who will benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy, offering the opportunity for more effective, individualized therapy. The test also showed the biological effects of the therapy, the first measurable, blood-based evidence of the therapy's success and showed who is vulnerable to recurring episodes of depression."

My short wishlist for +Gmail, Google Calender and Keep:
1. Integrate Keep and tasks in Google Calendar/Gmail
    (see also attached groups discussion)
2. support all star types in Gmail app (not only yellow stars)
3. share colors (to choose from) between these apps and web interface
4. allow to name colors (or associate them with tags)
