For Students:
Dropbox is offering 3GB of free space just for being a student. All you have to do is authenticate a .edu email address. Dont worry, the free space can be applied to any dropbox account you have and doesn't have to go to a .edu acct.

Every sign up gets your school closer to winning the Space Race competition, where the winning school will have lots of free space distributed to its students. Sounds like a good deal to me.

Help me out by using this link. It will give me an additional 500 mb referral bonus.

Cheers!!

Imagine choking on food, and instead of looking for someone to give you the heimlich, you reach into your pocket and inject oxygen into your blood. The growing market demand for tiny-sized instruments has made this technology feasible. Oxygen injections are not a new idea, but past methods have proven unsafe and noneffective. Proven to work in rabbits, nanoparticle-bound oxygen can be injected into the blood and instantly diffused within red blood cells. I expect human trials to be underway soon.

The da Vinci robot has been the model for medical innovation, ushering a new era of robotics-assisted surgeries. But has this movement done anything but drive up price? The evidence against this is limited. We as both consumers and providers need to objectively compare current medical treatments to administer only efficient proven therapies. Cost can no longer hide in the shadows of ignorance. Cost is becoming a factor in medical intervention options more than ever, and this is good for everybody, even innovation.

When tires have reached the end of their lifespan they are often piled in a junk yard for many years. This presents a problem for urban communities because it provides an excellent breeding ground for anopheles mosquitoes, the same mosquitoes responsible for the transmission of malaria. New research has shown that the addition of VectoBac insecticide to the water used when manufacturing tires has significantly reduced the amount of mosquito growth within discarded tires.

Consumers are outraged after claims against Kashi's natural products surfaced. While Kashi's cereal flaunts a stamp of "all natural," the scientific laboratory Cornucopia Institute has found that 100% of the grains inside the box were genetically modified organisms or GMOs. The grains were genetically modified to withstand high levels of weed killer  While there is no clear guidelines to what qualifies as all-natural, Kashi first defended themselves by claiming no fault in describing "all-natural" as minimally processes with no additional add-ins and then attempted to discredit the Cornucopia Institute. Kashi has now been accused of "green-washing", meaning that they are taking advantage of health-conscience consumers by falsely badging foods in order to sell them more expensive. 

This was not an isolated incident and consumers have united to illuminate companies toting health labels and labeling practices. The USDA urges consumers to buy 100% certified organic foods which excludes GMOs and excessive pesticide levels. The push for organics have been perpetuated by health consequences caused by high pesticide levels in the air associated with genetically modified organisms grown to withstand the dangerous concentrations. Consumers have lobbied for more stringent transparency of GMO use.
